WJE8T oooDwnr. DEATH OF Wm. ALLS. Oar dispatches bet Friday evening brieflv told of the death of William Allen, of Ohio, one of the purest aad best Men that ever lived and labored for a common people aad a common couatry. Nr. Alien was a man seldom aaet with in this world a man who had spent his life in an endeavor to snatch the firebrands from the magazine of powder on which unscrupulous poli ticians had placed the country a man who gave his life, his years of toil, and labor, for the benefit of" the people, and died with the proud consciousness of knowing that his hands were free from bribery, and his -name would de scend to coming generations as one of the noblest .works of God an honed man; although, be it said to the shame of his country,, he went out of the world as oor as he came in, save the little he had laid by from other occupations. Bill Allen is dead. No more will hie fog-horn be heard o'er the waste of waters bidding all lie of good cheer; and his clarion notes will never again summon the hosts to the conflict ; he is gone where the darts of envy can barm him no more and where he can find rest from the toil, turmoils aad troubles of life. f "Old Bill Allen," as he was famil iarly called, was a remarkable man. He ran on the Democratic ticket for Governor of Ohio when the State was conceded to be Republican by a large majority, and succeeded in carrying a majority of the people ; he held sev eral positions of trust and responsibili ty, but not a breath of suspicion was ever raised, or a charge made that he was ever guilty of any crime or had not kept his garments clean and teered his bark clear of the breakers upon which so many politicians have been wrecked. . The news of .his death, while in the midst of a life of usefulness, fell like a pall upon the country. His reputa tion was world-wide, and his good qualities Af head and' heart were known and honored by all ; and there is not one, evea among bis most bitter politician foes; who will not stand ready to pay a just tribute to his ster ling worth, his generous heart his vast kuowledge, his clear conception of people and things, his uncompromis ing honeatv and integrity, and power ful influence among the people of Ohio, and in fact, wherever he was known. fieptiacat in pace.

A Handle asmaiaa ia a Hasan Body for Orer Thirty Years. hltttf K.H.k Oazf ttf. Medical freaks, or rather freaks of mental, physical, or any way material istic things, excite the attention of doctors and learned men everywhere. All pheaomeaaare hurriedly put into print, read by thousands, aad com pared with former occurrences. The object of this article is to embody tbe tacts ia a by no means uaheard of, but a very singular occur reace, that of a needle remaiaiag for years ia a human body, causing pain, paralyzing energies, ami fiaally working oat to the relief of the su Merer. About thirty years ago Mrs. Batner, mother-in-law of Mr. T. L. Mont gomery, proprietor of the Base City baking powder factory, of this city, was seized with what she termed rheumatism. The pain was located in the left kip, aad at times was very severe. Fiaally it became necessary to peform a surgical operation, which was done, part of tbe hip joint being taken off. Physi cians held the opinion that the joint was affected and that the operation would aford relief, bat, contrary to their expectations, the lady did not improve very much. For years she had to use cratches, ami at one time she was confined to her had for over a vear. This was while the family lived ia Kentucky. After removing to this state Mrs. Batner did not improve very much, aad it was oaly by the ase of cratches that she could walk any distance. Last Satarday morning a small needle, of the old fashioned ''cambric' style, anaaVits appearance, the poiat proti adiag from . a - am an m tne ajseaseu section, obmu pieces oi bone have from time to lime worked oat, the needle was thoaght to be another fragment, aad k was oaly after being withdrawn that the trata was discovered. Mrs. JSataer says that she remembers oace, when a girl, riding horse hack, ahe was stack by a needle, which hanpsaed to he in her dress. The needle was brakes oi just below the eye. The description answers to the one spoken of aad there can he butKUle doubt bat that it is the same. Since the needle made its appearaace the lady is much improved and can now walk without the aid of crutches. MABKSTS MY TMUOBaVPH. Sr. Loom Maniar. St. Lock, Ma, Jnly 12.
