Yesterday afternoon Dr. Ben Leonard, ot
West Liberty, assisted by Dr. Hall, performed
a very delicate surgical operation on William
Itiuns, residing at the Forest Place In the
V.nH Knd. lliuns's rigbt lung was shriveled
aud compressed by a collection of pus
beneath it, and he hid bicn
given up by physicians here and
in Sandujky. An one-inch incision was
made just below the lung and five pints of
pus druwn through a hollow rubber tube that
was inserted. This morning Mr. Binns was
able to cat a fair quantity ot food and seems
to have a good prospect of recovery.
Sunday afternoon Joseph Kennedy, a boy
six years old, whose parents reside on Pleas
ant streut, was injured in a peculiar and at
the same time very painful manner. He
and a few ot his child companions were play
ing with a young shepherd dog belonging to
the Keunedvs. The dog suddenly grew vi
cious and bit the buy, tearing Ills pants almost
off and tearing the scrotum completely off,
leaving the testacies bare. Dr. llatterson was
called and sewed it on ugaln, applying a
preparation which he thinks will heal it. Un
less it does castration will be necessary.

Willi the exception of a rumor that there
is to be a quiet meeting tonight of some
of those who protest agulnrt the choice
uf the old j ill lot us a site for the new Gov

definitely fixed) there is nothing new up to
the present time bearing upon that matter.
No wild-evid utiens are rushing about aud
exposing themselves to eovji ile lolril with
long petitions, eolieiting signatures; aud up
to ti.it hour of going to pre;s no call for an
Indignation meeting, over a responsible sig
nature, has been seen or heard of. The fact
seemi lo be that the opposition lucks organi
zation, and that nobody cares to lead off in
that direction, and so the matter stands. It
Is suggested, whether or not It be too late, by
some who have been and still hold the opin
ion that the West corner la the proper place,
that parlies interested might make up a sum
among themselves that would enable Mr.
West tnotler the proper!) to the Government
