An Old Friend.
We have just been bcrmitted to sec
and peruse a letter from our old friend
and former fellow-citizen, Abel
. Thornberry, now eighty-six years oi
.age. He is in vigorous health, and
writes a, vigorous letter, and still
sticks to the old Republican faith.
In his rejoicing over the Ohio elec
tion, he says : "We have gained a
victory over the so-called Democracy,
Rome and rum." May our old friend'
live many years to assist in repeating
like victories over the opposition to

When the history of journalism in
Richmond U written, the name of
Bill Thistlethwaite will be briefly
mentioned in connection with the
'Free Press," a journal that eked out
a miserable existence for a few
months. The people could not en
dure the stupidity and blackguardism
of its editor, and he was finally in
duced to relinquish its control for a
wore befitting calling.

s We had occasion to step into the
Mayor's office on Monday afternoon.
and noticed John Ryan sitting oc a
chair conversing with one of the offi- I
cers whose headquarters is at that
place. John seemed to be quiet, and,
as far as we were able to judge, peace
able, in every way. 1 1 is possible he
may have been in liquor; as to that
however we cannot affirm. - Presently
in stepped .Charles Seamen, police
man, and went to John and asked
him to go along with him and take a
sleep, to which request J ohn demur
red. Seaman then too held of him
and a scuffle ensued, in which John
and Charles ; fell to to the floor, the
latter on top. and there the . scuffle
continued until the officer 6ent to the
street for- assistance. Three or four
men came ia from ihe engine house
and, overpowered Ryan, and carried
him to the calaboose. We regard the
transaction as an outrage upon the
rights of Ryan, and brutal on the part
of Seaman.' For which he ought to
be speedily dismissed from the service

: Three week ago Mr.1 John- W.
Wickard, a more hoaorable and up
right man than he does not lire iu
this community, came to the Palladi
um office and detailed to us the cir
cumstance of the death of his daugh
ter, in Kansas, and that three of his
grand-daughters : who were , tempo
rarily residing at his house, were tel
egraphed to come hoaie immediately,
that their, mother was dead. Mr.
Wickard brought the girls to the
depot on Tuesday, the 5th instant, in
time for the evening train, asked for
tickets to Kansas City, over the Van
dalia road, a route they were acquant
ed with, and knew the trains on the
Pan Handle made close collections
on this road. The agent at this place
made out tickets for then over the
Indianapolis and St. Louis road, at
the same time assuring tbe party that
they wctc the right tickets.; They
readied Indianapolis at about ten
o'clock that night, and had their
tickets been correct, could have mov
ed right on, but as they were wrong.
the Pan Handle having no connec
tion with that Toad, they were com
pelled to remain there till the next
morning at 8i o'clock.! These j oung
ladies caused a statement of the facts
to be published ia the Indianapolis
Herald of the 9th inst. '
. The agent at this place, fearing
their article might possibly be repub
lished iu the Richmond papers, ad
dressed a letter to the Palladium of
fice requesting us not to republish it,
as he would explain the matter and
make it all right in the aext issue of
the Herald, asking us to publish his
explanation. , '
His "explanation" and the com
ments thereoa by the editor of the
Herald were republished in last
week's issue of the Palladium. We
thought., this was fair to both parties,
and there we intended the natter
should rest, as far as our connection
with it was concerned, notwithstand
ing the fact that Mr. Sylvia, in his
"explanation," admits the truth of the
only chargethat of selling wrong
tickets the correspondent of the
Herald brought against him.
Now comes the Free Press, true to
its low, cricgiag instincts, and as a
suple, pliant tool of everything in
rower or position, to tbe agent's de
fence. It abuses us for publishing
this fair, candid statement of facts;
for being fust to the weak against the
stroug. We have noticed its course
during its brief existence, and in ev
ery question where the rights of the
people were on one side and place and
power, no matter how low or indecent,
on the other, that that concern was
sure to be found on the side of the
P. S. Since tbe above was in tj-pe
there has come to hand other and
more serious charges against this
ticket agent. We wilt not publish
them however. We are afraid that
"Jack," as he is familiarly knows ia
this community, has got in tbeabit
of mixing his drinks with something
other than coffee. Our advice to you,
Mr. Sylvia, is to keep out of the news
papers and attend to the duties of
your office faithfully, and then you
will be happy.

Under this caption yesterday's In
denendent tells "a tough" story about
Charles Seaman and John Ryan. The
writer shows himself to be a great ass
or a great liar, or perhaps both. It is
true Mr.'" Dormer was present and
witnessed the transaction, and states
unhesitatingly that Seaman .was the
assailant and wholly in the wrong.
Seaman ought to have been kicked
out of the office and dismissed from
the position he disgraces. The white

put on this affair will not do.
Tbe Old "Taylor Press."
:- The new proprietors of the Pal
lidium office will clear out all the
old materials; but before doing so,
however, we intend to have a phos
tograph taken - of the old press.
The history of this press would be
interesting if we could only trace
it back to its first introduction in
Cincinnati, by Ephraim Morgan,
who operated it on the canal in
the "Queen City" it being pro
pelled by water power. Mr. Mor
gan printed the first series of M
Goffey's school books on this press.
Mrs. Chas. T. Price "fed" this press
during its ownership by Ephraim
Morgan, if we are not mistaken.
It was subsequently owned and op
erated by Messrs. Morgan & Saiey,
and then by Morgan & Overand;
then, in 1S52 it cauie into oar pos
session. For about twenty-three
years it has done faithful work for
ns, and like every true and faithful
servant, it yet makes a good 'ion
pression." Its age must be in the
neighborltood of oar own sixty
and, like ourself, there's at least
t verity years of good work to bo
got out of it yet.

'Trust not, my child, this Is a vale of

This is a mournful tale they are telling,
That friendship can be measured out by
That love's a thing of buying and selling

Dentil of General Solomon Meredith.
Below we give a truthful sketch of
the services of this self-made man,
which we take from the Indianapolis
Journal. Like all men of his type,
that achieve greatness by the innate
strength of a perseverance that never
knew the meaning of the word "fail,"
he carved out for himself a name in
the records of "Old Wayne," the
State of Indiana, and the Union, that
his relatives and frieods may indeed
be proud of. The true appreciation
in which he was held was manifested
by the large attendance at his funeral
on Sabbath last not less thin from
ten to fifteen thousand persons were
present :
EDITH. General Solomon Meredith died at
bis residence, near Cambridge City,
Wayne county, Thursday morning, j
21st inst., at about 1 o'clock. Ha has !
been in somewhat feeble health for
the last year or two, the result partly'
of advancing age, and partly of injuries
received duriug the late war. Some j
time during the last summer, in Au
gust, perhaps, he went to Canada to
attend a convention of cattle breeders,
and while there contracted a very
severe cold, which setlled on his.
lungs and took a strong hold of his
constitution. Since that time he has
been steadily losing etrenght, and
doubtless that was the beginning of
the disease which caused his death.
At intervals he has seemed to rally,
and even to give signs of returning
health, but his constitution, already
enfeebled by previous exposure, was
unabe to withstand the steady inroads
of an insidious disease, while old age
contributed also to the hastening re
sult. For several days prist it has
been apparent that he could not long
survive, and Thursday morning he
breathed his last, surrounded by an
affectonate family and amid the scenes
where he had passed bo many busy
and eventful years.
General. Aiereilith was a native of
North Carolina, where he was born in
Guilford county. May 29, 1810. In
1829 he Came to Indiana, and settled
at once in Wayne county, where he
continued to make his homo during
the remainder of his life. He started
in life as a common farm laborer, but
soon evinced a taste and talent lor
politicp. In 1834, and aeain in 1836,
he was elected sheriff of Wayne county
by tbe Whig party. . About this time
he embarked in the mercantile busi
ness in Cambridge, and pursued it
with characteristic energy. In 1&40
he was a delegate to the Whig Na
tional Convention, and was afterward
an ardent supporter of Harrison for
the Presidency. In 1846 he was elect
ed to the State Legislature, and twice
re-elected. In 1849 he was appointed
by President Taylor United States
Marshall for this district, and held
the position till 1853, when he was
removed by President Pierce. . In
1854 he was again returned to the
Legislature by the then expiring
Whig party. He was one of tho first
tojointhenew Republican organiza
tion, was a delegate to the convention
which nominated Fremont in 1856,
and ever afterward a firm and un
wavering adherent of that party. Un
the breaking out of the war in 1861,
General Meredith threw himself with
great injury into the work of enlisting
and organizing troops for the defense
of the government, and in July of that
year was commissioned Colonel of the
Nineteenth Regiment Indiana Volun
teers. Though possessed of no mili
tary education, he had many soldierly
qualities, and no man brought to the
support of the Union cause more cob '
scicntious devotion of unflagging zeal.
He served with credit during the
whole war. His regiment was in many
engagements, and subsequently be
came known for its fighting qualities
amid an army ot heroes. At the- bat
tle of Gainesville, in August, 1862, in
which his regiment bore a conspicu
ous part, Colonel Meredith had a
horse shot under him, and was severe
ly injured by its falling ujwn him.
He, however, remained at the head of
the regiment during the remainder of
that campaign, and commanded it
with signal ability at the battle of
South Mountain. On the 6th of Oc
tober, 1862, Colonel Meredith was
commissioned Brigadier General, and
served in that capacity dnring the rest
of the war. In 1866 he was appointed
Assessor of Internal Revenue, and in
1867 Surveyor General of Montana
Territory. He held the latter po
sition about two years. Since 1869 he
devoted himself mainly to farming
and stock-breeding, and, though tak
inft' an active interest in rtnklin
bae not been prominently identified
therewith. Whatever General Mer
edith did he did with his might, and
he pursued the business ot stock
raising with the same zeal and energy'
which he threw into his other under
takings. : , He spared no labor, pains
or expense to improve his breeds of
cattle, and came to regard his herds
of thoroughbreds with almost enthu
siastic affection. His efforts in this
line were attended by a large degree
of success, and it may be safely said
that no man in the State has done so
much to advance this interest as he. '
His home farm was a model one, and
he was never more happy than when
showing off his fine cattle, or dispens
ing a generous hospitality in his own
house. In the projection and build
ing of the Indiana Central Railroad
he was most influential, and gave his
personal attention to procuring the
material and otherwise advancing the
enterprise. He was born a Quaker,
but many years ago connected himself
with the Methodist Episcopal Church,
in which his children have been bap
tired. A leading trait in General
Meredith's character was his univer
sal affability. A cordial shake of the
hand, and a warm, friendly word with
every one he met were characteristics
of his every-day life. As a conse
quence he was ever surrounded by a
host of the closest personal friends.
A short time before he died his mind
wandered considerably. His army
lite was uppermost in his thoughts,
and his utterances were of the days 1
he pent in caiup and the battle. Oue
of these was : "Now, boys, the gov-'
ernment is in great peril. - We cannot
have any traitors in camp. We want :
every man to be true." General
Meredith was a man of fine presence,
courteous address, and genial man
ners. - These qualities were of great
assistance to him in public life and
won him friends wherever he went.
He was a forcible speaker and his
strong convictions often enabled him
to create a deeper impression on tho
popular mind than other men of
seemingly greater attainments. In
his demise tbe State has lost a good
citizen and representative man, and
the announcement of his death will
be received with sincere regret by a
very large circle of friends. He was
a biother-in-law ot Hon. John S.
Newman and Rev. F. C. Holliday, of
Indianapolis, the three having mar
ried daughters of the late Samuel
Hannah. The deceased was perlectly
conscious during his last sickness and
fully resigned to his approaching end.

A good story is going the rounds
in regard to Governor Hendricks.
While at Portsmouth last Friday,
it is said that his audience of 600
or 800 was made np largely of West
Virginians, who bad imbibed freely
of Democratic whisky uninflated
with water. .Of course a fight oc
curred every fifteen minutes, to the
delight of the Virginians, and to
the disgust of the Governor. At
last, out of patience with the quar
relsomeness and inattention of the
motley crowd, he cried out, with
some show of anger; ."Gentlemen,
you had better reserve yourselves
for the great fight on Tuesday, and
to-day listen to the promulgation
of your principles H " That's so
Governor," exclaimed a inaudl'ng
fellow, " but you have a d d sight
more promulgation than principles.
Let the fight goon!"
In his forthcoming annual re
port Commissioner Pratt of the In

present a most favorable showing
of national finances. The increase
in the levenue receipts for the
present fiscal year, in view of the
generakbusiness depression, speaks
well for the reform inaugurated by
Secretary Bristow and Attorney
General Pierpont The Commis-
sioner's report shows an increase in
revenue for the first three months
of this year amounting to $2,000,
000, and the estimated receipts for
the fiscal year will reach $120,000,
000 exceeding the receipts of last
year 10,000,000.. This increase is
partly due to the addition;)! tax on
whisky and tobacco. . v

During, the year 1866 Dr. Lothrop had a
new and peculiar drug flora the Interior of
Africa brought promptly under his notice
by the very strange effect It produced on an
animal who had accidentally swallowed a
large quantity. Owing to this circumstance
he was led to make experiments on the
lower animals, and he soon discovered that
it had a very peculiar effect on the nervous
system. This induced him to experiment
both on himself and some of his patients
and such was the beneficial effects, and so
rapid the cure of those afflicted with ner
vous diseases that Dr. Lothrop eametothe
conclusion that he bad discovered a new
and valuable addition to the medicines of
the pharmacapoea. He soon fonnd that
this medicine in conjunction with others,
cured nervous diseases of all kinds with a
certainty and rapidity of which he had no
previous conception. Perfectly safe, never
injurious, tonic and strengthening In ac
tion and certain In effects, such a medicine
bad never previously been used by the
medical profession. Numerous tests were
applied, aad the medicine given In all
kinds of cases and different doses until at
last Dr. Lothrop was thoroughly satisfied
about its mode of action, which is a com
bined tonic and sedative to the nervous,
system. ' r-'i--
All Nervous Diseases arises from irrita
tion of one or more of the nerves. The
cause of this irritation ia often obsure, but
often as plain as noon day. It is not, how
ever, so much with the obscure causes as
with the banefol effects nnd dreadful suf
fering caused by diseases of the nerves, that
we now have to do. Fzsom the simple ner
vous headache to the deep-seated and al
most incurable diseases known as epilepsy.
St. Vitus' Dance, Tremors, pain in the back,
specks floating before the eyes, one and all
arise from a diseased state of the nervous
system. Let this disease be brought on by
any cause whatever, and the result remains
the same namely: fearful suffering and
heretofore only very partial or temporary
relief. - :
' This sure remedy Is composed of the most
soothing, strengtheningjn vigorating med
icine xn the whole vegetable kingdom, and
is a most perfect antidote tor this obstinate
class ot maladies.
Nervous Debility.
" For the cure of Nervous and General De
bi lity, broken down constltnl ions, Nervous
ness, Weakness, the Result of Excesses,
and many other causes too numerous to
mention, there is no remedy In the world
that eouals the -
, It is worth Its weight In gold. '
(New Orleans Price Current, New Orleans
The great English remedy which Is now
attracting such attention throughout the
Eastern States, is the property of Dr. Edgar
Lothrop, an eminent physician of lioston.
In cases of Nervous Debility and Broken
Down Constitutions, its effects are perfectly
marvelous, never failing in curing trie most
stubborn cases, and giving that relief to the
patient which makes his life a pleasure in
stead of a curse. Dr. lyotlirop wiU be only
too happy to send circulars and testimo
nials of leading men of this country free
upon application, and will furnish the med
icine by express to the unfortunate persons
needing It. The are not sensational state
ments, but facts, as Ihe signatures to the
testimonials now in tbe Doctor's possession

not leud their names for publication miles
the articje had the actual merit claimed.

those I am constantly receiving, and spaak
for themselves:
Bkookxyit, Feb. 21, 1875.
G. Edgar Lottxrop, M. D.:
Dear 8ir In- reply to your kind letter of
Inquiry, I will state that I have taken two
packages of the Cordial. Balm of Hyrieum
and Tonic Pills, and commenced on the
third, and although I had little or no faith
In it on tbe start, I am now free to confess
that its effects in my case have been so
marked that I am well satisfied two or three
more packages will completely restore me.
I am gaining rapidly in flesh, appetite is
very much improved. I sleep sound ot
nights, and In every respect feel like a new
being. Very truly yours,
POUTI-AMD, MK.. Feb. 4, 1873.
- Dr. Lothrop Dear Sir: Feeling that I
owe you a debt of gratitude I can never re
pay, I send you the following statement of
what your truly wonderful remedy, the
Cordial Balm of Hyrtcum and Tonic Pills
have done for me, hoping that It may be of
benefit to yon and to thousands of others
who have suffered like myself;
I had been affiieted for about ten years
with that most terrible of al) diseases. Ner
vous and Getters'. Debility, and although I
had tried nearly all the remediesand many
Physicians, bad been constantly growing
At length, by the earnest soliottatious of
a friend ,1 consented to try tbe Cordial Balm
t. rrtcnm and Tonic Pills without the
slightest faith in their edicaey. I had not
used one bottle before I was imbued with
new tiope, and now, after the use of but
foot packages, oactsides myself a well man .
I can retire at night and sleep sottndlv
something I have been unable to do before
for years. Ian gaining In flesh, and, in
fact neve felt better in my life.
