POLAND and Jiutier were snot on the same day, with the same sort of ammunition and same kind of ball ball-ots. The country will not mourn over their loss any more than it did over the defeat of Pratt and Parsons in this State. The eon test for the speakership of the next Congress is between Sammy Cox and Fernando, the sal ary grabber. Fernando having held onto the spoils, is the most Demo cratic of the two, and seek to have bis virtue recognized.

Of course they don't refer to the time when their imbecile President, Buchanan, allowed that prince of Democrats, Floyd, to rob all the arsenels of the country, scatter the army, fcc., that treason might hatch unrestrained. The Democratic times before the war were good, very good for rebels. Mr. Charles P.JThompson, who defeated Ben Butler for Congress, seems to be a pretty fair sort of a man for a freshly caught Democrat after alL There was a jubilation gathering at Gloucester one night last week, whereat Thompson, being called ont,talked to his constituents as follows: 1 stand now as no partisan. I am principle upon party grounds. not the servant of the Democratic ,.rty; lam not the servant of the Republican party. I shall advocate those measures and only those meas ures that I believe for the common good. I shall never advocate a In tnis canvass mere are some impor tant questions. I know that my Re publican friends who voted for me did so because I was sound upon that question. You may ask me if I am in favor of the colored man. I answer, Yes, I am in favor of the white man and the colored man. I believe they are both entitled to equal rights under the Constitution. I believe in equality of rights and an equality of duties. I would not , go for law that would discriminate in favor of a white man or a black man. I want the same law for all." What Does it Mean? Has Willmer Been Purchased? Mount the Stand, Brother. We find the following mysterious communication in the Sandusky Reg ister. It quotes a paragraph from Willmer' s paper in which he charges that the late grand jurors did not do their duty, and also makes charges I that individuals had been purchased, t, tv. . v j v Ruess, rather intimates bad things about Willmer and others. Let the demand of Willmer that he speak. And by the way, the Dr. referred to is a conservator of the peace, a custodian of the law ; one whose duty it is to see that the law is enforced. If he knew of any one who had accepted a bribe, or sold his vote for money, why was it that he went not before the Grand Jury himself and made information, Surely on such evidence as he would true I give, in such circumstance, bills would have been found. In paragraph quoted from Willmer's paper, the whole Democratic party is assailed, and the honest men in it should demand that he name those who took bribes, and make present ment thereof before the next grand jury. Or is it possible that they all took baibes. We wait for Willmer to speak. We pause for Ruess' re joinder, and for the revelations which he threatens to "reveal in a very short space of time." 'When Greek meets Greek, then comes the tug of war," and now the leading German of Sandusky Coun ty and one of the bright German lights of Erie have taken each other by the ears. Puli away, boys: A CARD FROM MR. RUESS. Eds. Register: In our neighbor ing and prosperous city of Fremont pears a German paper named Pre- mont Courier. The said journal contained in its last issue of Novem ber 5th the following spicy editorial: "We cannot be charged to exager- ate matters when we maintain that Cbas. Foster's majority in this elec tion district was bought with dollars and cents. It will be easy to bring forth sufficient proof for the correctness of our assertion, that certain parties, who indulged too lib erally in the modern traffic of man kicci, would have come to grief if the Grand Jury of our county had in vestigated the late election. And Chas. Foster is an henest Republi can, an exception of the rule, who was set up for others as an impulse of imolation." Now, this seems to be pretty cool in the month of November. In the first place, I ask Mr. Foster whether he has bought any body with dollars and cents in this latitude. Second, I ask the editor of the Fremont Courier to furnish the proof of his unmanly accusations; and Ihird, I ask that very same gen tleman to swear before his God whether he does not know anything about bribery within the rank and file of his own party. I for one can prove what will be revealed in a very short space of time, and I for one solemnly protest that blind and obedient party ser vants, who only move when the par whip cracks, are true representa tives of the people's sentiment Mr. Foster's election is, in my humble opinion, not a Republican party vic tory. Neither can the so called Dem ocrats claim that the well deserved defeat of the Grant party all over continent was a Democrat vic tory. I ask of Dr. Willmer as an honest man, which I believe he is, say who was bought with dollars cents. It may be I can say.and prove it also, who was bought on the Democratic side in tho recent and other elections. HERMANN RUESS. NEBRASKA SUFFERERS. So far we believe there has been no movement in this city to organ ize for the purpose of aiding the suf ferers in Nebraska. Several times we have referred to this matter, in the hope that our citizens would arouse to the importance of lending a helping hand, but there is no movement. We do not think that it is because there are no generous hearts or willing hands here, that nothing is being done, but rather that the generous and the willing are waiting for some one to take the lead and then they will willinelv unite with the leaders to help for ward the noble charity. We again coil attention to the matter, and in doing so invite a perusal of the fol lowing appeal to our citizens, in which it will be perceived that the committee asking aid have them selves designated leaders, who, it is hoped, will promptly take hold and aid them in their extremity. Let every cnizens 01 rremont do some thing, and our neighboring farmers could each spare a few bushels of their abundant crops to relieve the sufferings of those who appeal for aid. M. Wilson one of the Com mittee, was formerly from Elmore- 0. or P.Q. was from this vicinity, and Rev. R. B. Harrington was one of the pioneers of Ottawa County, and is well known by may here, Perhaps, also, many other old neigh- bors are among the snffererg.

Man Beset by Three Desperadoes. and Killed. His Body Afterwards thrust into a Furnace and Cremated. On Saturday night last Cincinna ti was the theater of one of the foul est and most fiendish murders it has ever been our lot to chronicle. The Enquire rhas nearly five columns in regard to it from which we condense as follows: Herman Schillicg, the murdered man, was a native of Westphalia, twenty-five years old, five feet eight inches in hight, muscularly propor tioned. He was employed by H. Freiberg as a private watchman for his tannery. Andreas Egner, one of the sus pected murderers is aged about 43 years of spare figure and a forbid ding aspect. Fred. Egner. a son of Andreas is a young man, and Geo. Rufer the last of the trio of suspec ted murderers, is 37 years old, five feet seven inches in hight, and pos sessing a strong and sinewy frame. CAUSE OF THE MURDER. sometime Schilling had board ed with the elder Egner. Egner had a daughter aged 15 years, whose mor als according to reports were not good, and the father had once sur prised Schilling in her bed room. He escaped by jumping through a window. He then ceased boarding with Egner, but father and son were heard at different times to threaten his life. Schilling did not deny con nection with the girl, but claimed others were equally favored. Be that as it may, she.became pregnant, and died in the hospital in August last, from cancers of the vulva. The same day the father and son attacked Schilling in the tan yard and would have killed him but for the interpo sition of bystanders. They were ar rested, and fined $50 each, and held in $200 bonds to keep the peace. Rufer had worked in the tannery but was discharged on Saturday last. He claimed Schilling was instrumen- it Ul in effecting his discharge. But I . reports say that Rufer had set fire to Werks candle factory the night before, and Schilling was cognizant of the fact, which would be an ad ditional reason for his desiring Schilling's death. THE MURDER. About half-past ten o'clock Sat urday night, John Hollerback, aged 16, and who lived close by' went to his room and disrobed to go to bed, when the noise of a fearful struggle startled him, and hurrying on bis clothes he ran out doors. Perceiv ing that the noise came from the tannery and knowing Schilling well be called out: "Herman is that you?" The reply came, "Yes John. John, John, come and help me, some one is killing me." uttered as if the speaker was being choked or stifled. "Who is it," was the next query. Thc answer was so indistinct that nothing could be made of it and Ilollerbach shouted "Murder, murder, let that man alone I will come in and shoot you." No response was made to this threat save the er of and him mg in GURGLING NOISE OF THE STRANGLING MAN, and Hollerbach frightened almost to death, started out of the alley and he down Livingston street in quest of a 80 policeman. He saw the light of the flTlLAm AT t. tO T.r TATA Watchman f I w . , knowinV t.h . rer he hftd tVe " er to arr(lst the boys strange story, he did not call his attention to the matter, and alter vainly seeKing lor a policeman on 8Teri sheets witnout calling or ed mating any outcry for them, he re- Six 8table where the foul deed had been aUo- committed, hearinc. ha thnno-ht a I knnii o " I dragging noise as he went by. Upon reduce I regaining hii room he was afraid to ' until ings, goto sleep, and sat up all night in fear and trembling. About 7 o'clock Sunday morning, another employee at the tannery went to groom the horse, but finding the gate locked he called Schilling. Ilollerbach heard the calls and look ing oct informed him of the fear ful struggle of the night before. Together they gained admission to the stable, found the horse exhibit ing every symptom of terror.the sta ble gave evidence of the fierce strug gle, being splashed with gore, a six tined fork and a broom showed evi- dence of having been used in ' the I ners, a bundle of clothes was encounter, and tracks of blood were discovered leading to the gas room of the brewery, but no body was found. Assistance was obtained, and the search continued until the re mains of the murdered man were lound in the flue of the furnace, nearly consumed. The fire was put out and the charred remains gather ed together. A coroner's jury was empaneled, and an inquest held. Suspicion was at once centered upon the Egners and they were ar rested, and subsequently suspicion was directed to Rufer who was also arrested. In the dwelling of the Eg- found which bore strong testimony against them, gouts of blood were found up on the clothing of Rufer. The En quirer, after giving a description of the premises to assist in guarding which, three great savage mastiffs were kept gives the following graphic sketch of MANNER OF THE MURDER. Judging by all the evidence the murderers were familiar with the premises and its canine guardians; for, were they not, they could not have gained access to them without encountering the dogs, and being probably torn into fragments by them. They in all probability enter ed through the gate leading from Egner's to the tanyard, and ensconc ed themselves in the harness room, which they knew their victim must pass on his way to his lodging. When he entered, as was his wont, by the small gate opening on Gamble alley, they were peering through the open doorol the harness-room awaiting their opportunity. A few more steps in darkness and silence, and the watchman's throat is suddenly seized with a grasp of iron. Then commenced THE TERRIBLE STRUGGLE FOR LIFE. The night is pitch dark, fit gloom for the dark deed it veils. The vic tim is a young and powerful man, muscled like Hercules; but he has been wholly taken by surprise, he is unarmed, and he finds by the strength of the grasp on his throat that his antagonist is more than a match for him in mere brute force. A stunning blow from behind sud denly shows him that he has two en emies to deal with; and then for the first time, perhaps, the terrible knowledge of the fact that his life is sought, first dawns uoon him. Then indeed it became a fierce light for dear life. The stable shows that the victim, despairing of his ability to cope with his savage assailants, sought refuge behind the horse's hoofs; hoping at least to thus gain a moment's time to shriek for help. But here the indications are that the contest was hottest The side of the stable is in places deej dented by the prongs of the fork indented by such as only immense force coul thrusts which were designed to let out the life of the victim. It was the noise of this struggle that at tracted the attention of young Ilol lerbach, and who knows? but that his version of what he saw and heard of it has yet to be told in full. Cer tainly it seems singular that he should behave himself in the re markable manner he states. At the hour he names as the time of the murder a dozen saloons in the im mediate vicinity were in full blast and filled with patrons. Aye even the house in which he slept no, did not sleep, but watched has a bar room in it which kept open until af ter midnight, and volunteers to res cue the victim could have been ob tained by scores. John Ilollerbach evidently knows much more than he has told of this fearful crime. It is preposterous to think that any man in his sane mind would act as he says he did. When the life of the dying man had so far ebbed that he could no longer resist bis fate his murderers thought of the best place to dispose of the body. ly in jntcu- thrusts I i THE FURNACE. Within one hundred feet of the stable is the boiler-room, and this boiler is heated by a furnace of pe culiar construction, being built on the principle of an air furnace for melting iron. Its fuel is tanbark, emptied in a grate through two cir cular openings in its top, and pro vided with a brick flue through which its gases pass into a chamber underneath the boiler where they are ignited. Into this chamber is a square damper opening of about twelve inches across,and to this nar row door the victim was carried by his slayers. The fire in the furnace had been dampened down, but the villains knew well its mechanism. through into the flue. Ia this, nowever, iney were naiKca oy us and their next work was to ar- range the furnace bo that its fire burn the remains to ashes, How well they succeeded our story has told.
