rTHANKSOlvlNa.-The Governor of
Ohio has appointed Thursday, the 28th
-iuBt.,M a day of Thanksgiving and
Prayer to Gon.
SknarTaiTCohtest. Depositions
were taken on Wednesday last, at the
Court, House in this city, in the con
test of Henry M. Onderdonk against
' Homer C. Jones for the offico of Sen
ator in this District. About 25 Ne
groes were examined, all of whom
swore positively that they voted the
Radical ticket, and for Mr. Jones. It
Beem3 to us that Mr. Onderdonk is
main a clear case, and we think he
will, beyond a doubt, secure his seat
in the Senate. The taking of deposi
iirlimimed to this (Friday)

votes will be disposed ot.Gallipolis

.We think it "beats the Jews" about
"25 Negroes swearing they voted for
Jones." Twenty-five niggers! "Them
colored troops fought bravely 1" did'nt
they? "My stars!" "them colored
troops" must have felt grand when
thev voted for Jones! Twenty-five

bravely that they voted for Jones !
Twenty -five nigger votes for Jones !-

is worthy "of note that while1 General
Hayes', majority in this District is 105,
that of Mr. Homer C, Jones fbr Sena-

the vote we find that Mr. Jones runs

fRT.ANi Smith. Master it
raneportatioa on the Marietta & Cin
cinnati Railroad, has resigned that
poBition and Capt' W, W, Peabody,
Pay Master on the road, has Men ap
pointed to fill . the Tacancy. NYe ty;
iove that is a most excellent selection.
Capt. Peabody is a gentleman in
every senso of the word; and is, in
every respect, competent to fill the
important position. lie will prove
himself to be the right man in the
right place. lie thoroughly under
stands how to transact business to the
entire satisfaction of everybody.' '.'
James B. Scott, Esq., who has, if
we are hot mistaken, been Agent for
the Railroad Company, at" Chillicothe,
for soveral years, has been "appointed
Pay Master on the Railroad in place
of Cant. Peabodt;' This Is another
cood selection. We are slightly ac
quainted with Mr. Scott just enough
to know that a more kind hearted ana
accommodating official never filled
any position on any Railway. This
is saying a great deal; but we became
convinced of the fact on the evening
of the 11th of January last, at Chilli
cothe, when we were removing the
offico from which this paper is issued,
from "Waverly, via Chillicothe, toMc-
Arthur. The Company should always
keep him in their employ no one can
find fault1 with such a noble hearted
Mr. Scott now takes charge of the
Pay Train, which makes its monthly
trips over th is end of the road, and which
is so well known as. the "Peabody
Train." " The Peabody Train," which
has caused "the poor laborers along
this end of the line to feel happy, wil
hereafter be in charge of Mr. Scott
when it thunders over this end of the
road loaded with "Greenbacks." ' We
suppose its name will be changed to
"The Scott Train." 1 "' ' " !

Om Fridav evening wo naid the
. . CT . ,
neighboring town of : Zaleski a visit.
and stopped at the Lindsley House,
kept by Mr, D. Dcncaji. ; , This Hotel,
which has, become so popular under
the supervision of the gentlemanly
Proprietor, who has thoroughly refit
ted, and more conveniently arranged
the House, now affords just as good
accommodation as can be had in any
Tart of the State. The table is
always supplied with all good eatables.
The establishment, in all its depart
ments, is neat,' cloan and inviting.
Located as it is in the most central
part of the town and near the Bail-
road Depot makes it convenient for
busiqoss men and all others who may
have occasion to visit the town.
The Zaleski Echo of last week said
nothing about the ono-sided- taxation
matter? of the Independent School
District. The Echo man informed us
a day or two ago that the Zaleski Co.
had "backed down," and that th tax
ation question was dead- . The 91 lots!
which the Co. manage to owi and

therefore he can not resign the office,
