Social Statistics. We glean a
few facts of general interest from
the roport of the Socretary of State:
Thore were in Ohio, for the rear
ending April 1, 1871, 59,957 births,
ot which d48 were illegitimate.
During the same period there were
25,149 deaths, of which about 700
were negroes.
The total number of marriages
during the year was 24,627.
The number of r divorce suits
brought was 2,255. The number
granted, 1,077.
The number of person natural
ized for the year ending July 1,
1871, was 2,290, of these the Ger
mans were by one-third more nu
merous than any other nationality.
During the year ending July,
1871, 6 porsons wore executod, 325
sent to the penitontiary, 22 sent to
tho Roform Farm, 145 imprisoned
in the County jail, and 1,812 fined.
Those prosecutions cost 9115,995,
of which $25,805 wore collected for
defendants. : -
The business of the Civil Courts
is 'slowly increasing, but is much
less than bofore the war, and dur
ing the first two years of the war.
The number of paupers fn Ohio
in 1871 is 5,517 a gradual docroase
since 1869.
There were, in 1871, 131 National
Banks, with a capital of $22,765,
910, and 148 private banks, with a
capital of $5,113,408.

[From the Cincinnati Enquirer.]
A beautiful mess the Admin
istration has made of Mormon
prosecutions. It started out
to crush Polygamy with a
flourish of trumpets and air of
outraged virtue, and boaating
ly announced that it would se
cure the suppression of the
"twin relic" if it required the
whole power of the Govern
ment. Justice McKean, fool

ministration was -. m earnest;

Very soon he had Brigham
Young and most of his apostles
under arrest' on the charge of
murder, and committed them
witout bail. Though his pro
ceedings were believed to be
illegal, his most arbitrary acts
were .most loudly applauded.
and he had reason to believe
that, he was carrying out the
will of the powers that be.
Suddenly, District-Aattorney

that the Court's treasury Was

could not go on. lie accord
ingly secured a continuance of
tbe cases, and posted off to
Washington. About this time
a decided Mormon agitation
for the admission of Utah as a
State is observable. , Instruc
tions forwarded from Washing
ton to Judge McKean, order
ing him to accept bail in the
cases of Brigham and his apos
tles, lhe Judge Bull strange
ly obtuse, denies the motion
and will loose his official head
for his temerity. Tbe milk in
this huge mormon coconnut is
just here: Grant and Brigham
1 oung are co-conspirators.
The party of the first part
agrees to lend his aid to secure
the admission of Utah in
defience of the new apportion
ment Jaw ot Congress, and to
back Brigham against United
States Courts. In consideration
of which the party of the
second part agrees to carry the
electoral vote of the new State
for Grant and electoral votes
are just now an object of con
siderable interest to Mr. G..
more, in fact, than is the sup
pression of polygamy. In ful
fillment of this contract it is
to day given out from Wash

ecutions are to be discontinued.

The Ironton Journal, of the
