Tbe Monitor is publishod and ed
itcd by T. W.-Peaeock & Son, form
erly of this village. It isueutral in
politics, and ably conducted in the
intereaU of Dresden.
An editorial appeared in last
vreek's Herald on this question,
which we must occupy a little space
answering, and only a little.
There are but two points attempted
be mado in the whole column oc
cupied, and they are as follows :
First, that our articles on the In
ternal Revenue abuses, under which
people art Ruffering unnecessa
rily in this locality, are the emana
Hons of "Copperhead ism," "Disloy
ality," Second, that the Administration
Grant, so far, has been raoreeco
nomical than Johnson's was.
The first of these we will answer
by statin, briefly, that all tbe in
formation which we possess on In
ternal Revenue matters, and, conse
nn.ni w .u h enven our rea-
ders, has been derived from bright
and shining lights in tbe Radical,
"loyal" party of Morgan county 1
It has been the disgusted "loyal
ist," not ''copperheads," that have
been instrumental in having us in
formed as to the workings of the
Internal Revenue system in Mor
gan county, and the 15th District 1
Consequently, Mr. Pyle's attempt to
quiet these matters by yelling "cop
perhead !" must f ait
The second point, that "Grants
Administration is more economical
than Johnson's was," is refuted in
the leading article found on the sec
ond page of this paper, headed
"Radical Promises vs. Radical Per
formances A Few Statistics."
We auk the careful reading of it by
the editor of the Herald, and the
public generally. The Herald might
publish, with profit to its readers,
the remarks of Representative
We promised, in our last issue, to
give a statement of the expense the
I5tb District, composed of Monroe,
Washington, Meigs, Athens, and
Morgan counties, has been put to
assess and collect its Internal Rev
enne taxes. We select five consec
utive months, becinnine the 1st of
December. 1868, and ending the
last day of April, 1869. During
that time, Assistant Assessor Holl
i6ter, of Monroe county, was paid
8229.18 : District Collector Rich
ardson, located at Marietta, $2,291,
40 ; District Assessor Woodbridge,
located at Marietta, 51,034.82 ; As
sistant Assessor Downing, of Meigs
county, $623 73; Ass't. Ass. Walker,
of Athens county, $644.4o; Assist
ant Assessor Barbour, of Washing
ton county, $633.89; Assistant As
sessor Kahler, of Morgan county.
$51355 ; a total of $5,981.02 for the
five months, or n average of $1,
196 20 a month. It is due to Dis
trict Collector Richardson to say
that be bad to pay his Deputy Col
lectors, :n each of tbe countiep, out
ol the sum he received.
Prat, in his last week's issue of the
Herald, tries, again, to slur our paper
because we jublish it on the "Co oper
ative plan." We had thought he had
given up his feeble efforts in that way.
He knows that since we have adopted
it, our paper hs been gradually be
coming more popular with the people
each successive issue His howlings of
"Milwaukee r "Inside-out!" andsuch
like, have not injured us one whit, but
have only shown the people the jeal
ousy existing in his bosom, tie knows
the Conservative is weekly enlarging
its circulation and business; and he
also knows that the Herald has hardly
M many subscribers as it had before he
assumed control of its columns.
While we have increased ihe circu'a-
tion of the Conservative from three
hundred to six hundred, he has not
enabled the Derald to more than hold
its own, if that.
Igj" D. C. Pin kerton. Probate
Judge, tells us of an incident that
occurred at a wodding not forty
miles from McConnelsyilie, one day
last week. The happy couple, with
numerous friends, had assembled at
the house the ceremony was to be
performed in. Tbe Justice of the
Peace was present, and had been
provided with the "license," which
authorized him to join for life the
aspirants for matrimonial bliss.
Everything was being duly con
ducted, when, just before the words
were to be pronounced which were
to make the pair husband and wife,
in stepped an old lover and for
bade the Justice proceeding forth -e
r. Tbe J. P. stepped, and asked
by what authority tle marriage
was forbid, and received the some
what amusing answer : "I forbid
this marriage because sho, (the mai
den), has promised to marry me 1"
To tbe astonishment of the poor
fellow, who bad thus confessed him-
sen 10 nave treen t&e victim ot a
pretty woman's wiles, tbe marriage
ceremony was concluded. He pro
bably, wended bis way borao mut
tering : "There's many a slip be
tween the cup and the lip."

The Piko Road quostion is about
be revived hero in Morgan Co.
The Piko Road law, of April 30,
1869, which was so objectionable
many of our citizens, because of
its conferring to much power on
County Commissioners, has been
amended by an Act of the Legisla
ture passed February 16ib, 1870;
and, as will bo seen on a perusal of
said amendment, which will be
found below, the qualified electors,
in their sovereign capacity, constis
tute the court nou? to decide, by
.heir votes, whether or not they
shall be taxed for Free Turnpike
The amendment empowers the
Commissioners to submit the ques
tion of building such roads to the
qualified electors at the annual
P& elections, and it will be seen
on roierence vu uUlu r ..... ...
this paper, that they have ordered
that the question be bo submitted
at the coming Spring election.
We believe n is the purpose of
tho Commissioners, should the peo
ple decide m favor of the roads, to
issue bonds in denominations as low
as five and ten dollars, whirh will
be receivable in payment of Pike
Road taxes, thereby enabling farm
ers, and all other cldsse3, to work
out their tax.
Our paper is open for the dis
cussion of this question, pro or con,
by any responsible parties who de
sire to express their views over
The amendment, above spoken
of, is as follows:

county the ques ion as to the policy of
constructing feaia roads by general tax,
which said submission shall be made at
the annual spring election in April, A.
D., 1870, or any annual spring election
thereafter And said commissioners
shall cause public notice of such vote
to be given by publication in all the
newspapers printed and of general cir
culation in said county, and also by
causing hand bills to be posted up at
the usual places of holding elections in
each township and ward throughout
the county, at least fifteen days prior
