publican Committee," as they otll it.
The pirty has beoome so corrupt that il
is falling; out with its ablest sen. Last
year, H. J. Raymond of tba New York
Times was expelled from the ohairman
ship of the Committee, because of his
participation in the Philadelphia conven
tion. . Horace Greeley of the celebrated
New York Tribune was then put on the
- CoramtirealrrRaynnrnd'a plaoy Jieoanse
it was then thought Greeley was sound
and reliable; but now Gree!ey has beoome
a bondsman of Jeff Da via, and the loyal
radicals throughout the country are abu
sing him with more vehemence than they
ever abused Raymond. They now want
another Chairman. Two successive
chairmen, both among the ablest men of
their party, have beoome "disloyal", and
"unfaithful," according to the radioal
papers. What will they do? What had
they bettor do under the existing ciroum
stanoes? . Who will be their next chair
man? They ought to find some sound
and reliable men whom they ean trust
'during the Presidential campaign. D.
Maokley of the Jackson Standard, would
just suit if he was only known by the
radicals all over the ''New Nation," and,
.wa not so near insane. We would not

At a meeting of, the Demooratio State
Exooutive Committee, in conjunction
with Stste candidates, appointments were
made for meetings in nearly every coun
ty in the State, to bs addressed by lead-
' '
ing Democrats of the State.

The trial of John II. Surratr, for the
murder of Lincoln commenced about
three weeks ago. .... The prosecution In
the trial olbsed on Saturday last, and the
witnesses for the defence were oommenoed
on Monday. Mr.' 3radey, Attorney for
the prisoner, confidently assumes that he
has ample store of evidence to prove the
major portion of the witnesses for the
prosecution perjured 'criminals, and to
establish an-unleniabltf a?ti'( for the de
fendant. He also announces that he has
proof that Surratt was oonoealed. ; far
away during the assassination trials, that
ha was not allowed to see a newspaper,
and, moreover, that he did not know of
the arrest of his mother until after her
execution. The original' contraot of the
oonspirators, with their signatures pre
fixed, will be produced, and naither the
names of Mrs. Surratt nor her son will
be found there.
gjr The Hamilton True Telegraph,
the organ of the Democracy of old But
ler, responds favorably to the proposition
that the Demooratio State Central Com
mittee shall issue a call fot the resssem-
blage of the Demooratio State Conven
tion. It says, truly, "new issues : have
risen wbioh must be met." These issues
are the immediate payment of the Na
tional debt in "greenbacks," and the ne
gro suffrage amendment to the Stste
Constitution, whiob has been submitted
sinoe the Democratic male Convention
adjourned on the 8th of January. The
Democracy of Ohio want to be heard
from officially on both questions. Will
not the State Central Committee give
them a 'chance?
How the Mexicans Do It. A letter
writer, ia speaking of the execution of
Maximilian, says : . .
"The .Mexioan way 'of dome these
things is to place the victim in the center
of hollow square, and then detail four
soldiers to shoot him in the' baok, as a

is seldom fatal ; but Whether it is so or
not, there is one course which is invsri
ably pursued the corporal walks up to
tho wounded or dead man, puts the muz
zle of lis piece to his left ear and blows
out his brains. In this way Mendez
was killed, and this has probably been
the fate of the Emperor. Next in order
of. trial comes Generals Castillo. Valdez,
Arrellano and Prince Salm-Salm, who
holds American papers. The programme
is to court-martial them all in batohes,
according to their rank ; but with the
petty offioers it is probable that very
short work will be made. There are, al
together, about fo ir hundred and thirty,
among them Msjor Chrisman, ' an Aus
trian, long resident in the country, who
acted as General Soott's interpreter in
1848." , ', ' ,: ' . .; "

Fearful Lightning Stroke.
Last Thursday afternoon, about fiv
o'olook, a large orowd bad assembled in
the Fair Ground of the Springfield Un
ion Agricultural Asaooiation, when a
sharp thundor storm suddonly came up.
The rain soon began to fall, and the
crowd sought refuge from its effects io
the exhibition sheds. A flash of light
ning took place aooompauied by loud
peal of thunder, and instantly an kwful
spectacle was presented. - - 1
The lightning struok one of the sheds
whioh contained men, women andhoVses.
About a hundred persons were paraded
in an instant, falliog on their faces,and
as many as fifty were rendered insensi
ble for five or ten minutes, while about
a dozen, were 'quite . seriously burned,
An old gentleman namod John Goalie o
ier, and two -or three others, are no) ex
pected to reoover. , One woman was
prostrated and deprived of her sei ses,
but cot of her powef of; looomotonj
she instinctively gathered herself up and
ran to the bus and was oonveyei to
Holmes Hotel, and deolares she hafl no
knowledge or what took piece aftej the
flaBb, until -she found herself ia a room
at the house. ' i. .-. .:". i-
The lightning- struck a post in the
centre of tho shed, against whioh Henry
Tillou, the landlord of the West - Rails
Hotel, was leaning, and to which, a borse
was attached by , achsin balter.j. The
horse was killed instantly, while Mr., Til
lou esosped by being dazed and kaosked
down. : A singular faot roontiotted in
oonneotion with the strange freak of the
eleotrio fluid is that all the person ren
dered insensible fell upon their la?o.
A vouDir lady named Miss Nellie Cas-r
sey, wno wore a wniie apu oidck enecaeo
dress, was quite seriously injured,, and
her dress was - fairly soorciiea,' cut aiu
not take . fire. : Another woman was
struck on the shoulder, tho fluid passing
down her side, raising a porieot blister
in itsoourse. A man Jrom Otto wsb
hit on the right side of the b.jad. and on
his reoovery the mark was found; tuoom
menoe at tba right eve. whioh nas swel
led like a puff-ball, and oould bi plainly
traoed down the neok, aooross tie cheBt
and off the lets arm. :,. ',, ?,,
The most fearful consternation existed
among tno people until it was duoovered
how" light the injuries were tbat ned been
inflioted, , and the exoitenent waa most
intense. A great many attributed the
stroke to the attraction of a mowing ma
chine whioh stood near the ehi
two bovs who were' sitting . on it . at the
time esoaped uninjured, nor was, the ma
chine at all damaged if struck. , .. ,.
A valuable .mare whioh was hitohed to
the pole was knocked down, and.died, on
Friday from the effects of the lightning.
The Murder of Maximilian.
, fan. '.- i,
Under this caption ,. Henry'; Wikoff
oonolndod a letter to tne JNew JtorK
Times as follows: ; ..::;)::.:"
"Maximilian has been wantonly mur
dcred: the sentiments of this humane
see have been oruolly lacerated, and an
outrage has been oommitted against the
United States that calls for puniahmejpt.
The people of this country gave all their
sympathy to, the-, so called Republican
faction, and the remonstrances of our
Government . have restored it to power,
and the only guerdon we asked was mercy
for Maximilian, whose misfortunes had
condemned his errors. His death is Cot
merely an set of inhumanity; but of in
eratitude. It is not only a crime, bat to

beware.' Indiscriminate butchery ' may
be harmless sport in their eyes, but toe
people of those States brook neither ins
anlanpA nnr ininrv from iha Great Pntrt

And io view of tho insult to this
country,, the New York Herald, which it

on the Government, to immediately orl
ganize one hundred thousand , troops fot
an invasion of Mexico, and ' so wipe .but
the brigands, who, but for our prolog
tion, would nave long been narmloss af
the unfortunate prisoner who fell a sacri

of Maximilian, we have a pressing and

, A Missionary to the South Sea Islands
was so unfortunate as to lose a fine bead
of .hair by siokness, and being unprovi
ded with propor restoratives returned to
England . to recruit, his bealtn. "liar.
rett's Vegetable Hair Restorative", had
not then been discovered, and on regain
ing hie health the missionary provided
himself with a wig, and returned to the
aoene of his : labors. , The natives with
natural simplicity supposed that ho bad
obtaiced some hair seed which he had
planted oh his poll and produced a lux
uriant of the capillar? Bubstance. The
miBRonary humored this idea for a while
and promised to get them some Lair seed,
but finally astonished tbem by .lifting
his wig:,T They all shouted with one ao
cord, "He has come from England with
bis head thatohed."
There are too many groy and thatched
heads at the present day, and these would
be fewer were the use of "Barrett's Veg
etable Hair Restorative" more universal
in the country. , While it is not exactly
a "hair seed" it will prevent premature
baldness and groynes", and is a delight
ful article for tbe toilet.

: Terrible SiaoaaLE with a Snake.
A lew days since the wife of Mr. Wm.
Kiohardson, of Wsldo Township, miss
ing her little boy, went out in the garden
to hunt him: To her horror, she saw the
little fellow (eighteen months old) litem
ally enveloped in the folds of a monster
soako. Her cries did not reach tho fath
er, who was at work in a neighboring
field, and seeing her boy black with
strangulation, she heroiolly seized the
snake in her hands and tore it loose.
No sooner was he loose, however, than
he made for the mother, ferociously, and
coiled himself about her person, attempt"
ing to strangle her, as he did the boy.
She , again feized him,- and disengaged
herself from him, and killed him with an
at; ThejiMlo child swelled ' up for eev
efal days,' but has finally recovered. The
snake was what is called the 'bluo raoer,'
which does not bite but strangle?,' and
measured ten foot. We have the state
ment from Mr. R, herself, and it may be
relied on.as Btriotly true. It is one of
the most shocking affairs we ever heard
narrated, and ' as she . relates - it, would
