The Mountain in the background is mount Logan with the Beautiful Scioto gracefully winding around its foot. The Field with the sheaves wheat is a part the far famed Scioto Valley a farm now owned by the Poe heirs. There Are but few More Beautiful landscapes in the world.

This is the principal fruit county the state and Reiste from the Orchards in the Hills and Vaneys Are the most favourable character. Our late mayor who has a National reputation As a Temperance reformer has the largest Orchard in the county. A full crop peaches would yield him 20,000 bushels and he says the prospects now favor a full crop. Other Large growers speak we Ith the same Confidence. I also conversed yesterday with a Chat Farmers from every part the county and Liere were no croakers among Vliem. There Are some Clay Fields where the part aspects Are slim but the general look is splendid. I think there will be a full crop in the comity. Testing the Scott Law. A prominent citizen said to me a i see that the Saloon keepers propose to test the constitutionality the Scott tax Law in the supreme court. What a the use their w Asting their Money done to they know that Foster decided the matter in tie selection the court a Quot what can Uliey do a Quot Why under protest and when the two democratic judges who will be elected this fall take their seat they can then test it with a Chance getting a judicial the governorship. A what do you think the governorship a a a the republicans have determined the democratic candidate this a How Piave they accomplished that a a by their action the liquor question. Candidates and circumstances should harmonize. It is evident to every one that the Republican liquor legislation and the tactics the Foster crowd have but one object and that is the carrying the cities. Judge Geldes who would have been a Power Fui two years ago is not the Man for tie Changet circumstances the candidate must have personal strength in the cities which will enable him to carry a a but who is the Man a a judge Hoadly a Sjurse.

But Little can be Learned As to her associations retreats Here except that Slie did washing principally for coloured people. She is known to have been a constant buyer Witmor Here and occasionally laudanum. Her death was undoubtedly due to exposure and intemperance. An antidote for the divorce mania prescribed by . Dix. From the hour. Another discouragement that . Might Lia v e prescribed for divorce is Sis tent unselfish intention the part the married couples to be companionable. Companionship is the basis All lasting unions. No fact is better known and recognize to outside All family circles than that extreme differences intellect taste acquirement disposition and nature Are no bar to the most delightful and enduring Friendship unless in one person the other there Are positive vice selfishness that prevent the formation any True and honorable Bond with any being whatever. Even Heathen philosophers have urged Man and woman to per i it Etuate and perfect their Union by Mutual and persistent Devotion toward each other. But . Dix has indirectly discouraged this in nearly All his lectures. His injunction that wives shall be obedient to their Liu bands his reprobation at least suspicion in modern women a desire to be Well informed subjects which their husbands talk his criticism women who Are not Content to be House keepers and nurses and nothing More Are All calculated to make women the inferior their husbands and consequently to a great degree a companionable. The lecturer might justly live Given his male parishioners a Csc it eatable and otherwise some hard raps for the custom Many them is to devote the belter part the Day to business most the remainder to their male acquaintances and Only their stupid hours to their families.

The ought to be some Way it preventing such political vix is from sting no men to Quot but it May be sincere in its desire to nominate Ward As a Means wreaking its revenge upon so much the worse for Ward. If he were sure the nomination now and it were made known that the enquirer honestly desired his nomination he would be beaten overwhelmingly. The favor that is As deadly us the lax Riant Shade the poisonous Upas. No political aspirations can survive its deadly Contact. All the democrats Ohio require to know is that the enquirer favors a Man and they consider they have abundant pretext for killing him and vice versa i know that Ward is in no combinations and his friends should not be influenced by a Jve Arances which he is jew Verless to prevent a lawyers Trenino Point. Meeting Hon. L. T. Neal Ray mind ran Back to an event which was the turning Point his life. There has scarce ice ii a More Apt illustration the truth the lines the immortal Bard Quot there is a tide in the affairs men which if taken at its flood leads to Fortune and to a terrible murder had been committed near the Border line Ross and Highland counties. A brother major Blackburn your City was accused having been either a principal an accessory to the act. Or. Neal then in his Twenty fifth year was serving his first term As prosecuting attorney. The Blackburn family was influential and the major was then in his Zenith As the leading criminal lawyer Cincinnati. The major took chaise the Case and employed the most Brilliant array Legal Talent Ever engaged upon a criminal Case in this City. George e. Pugh Cincinnati judge Sloan Hillsboro Liis equal in reputation and ability Hon. Henry Dickey Greenfield since a member Congress and several other eminent Legal lights contributed the weight their renown and their Coal ability to tie defense. Or. Neil had but one assistant and took almost the entire Claige the Case. It lasted a Long time and the distinguished attorneys for the defense sex lausted strategy and Law but they found their Youthful adversary Jino plied at All Points and tie result was a conviction. A under Ordinary circumstances this would have been a Triumph tor the boy but to have wrested Victory trom such an array Legal giants made him a hero in both Ross and Highland counties. At the next congressional convention he was put Forward by these counties for Congress and elected and his Lej Pil and politic successes since have not been surpassed in stilts the incident in Liis remarkable trial which people will longest remember had George e. Pugh for its Central figure. Or. Pugh was to make the great speech for the defense. His great reputation had kept the court room packed throughout the Day with people anticipating a grand rhetorical treat. The attorney preceding him cd it sed at 5 clock and judge Safford announced in evening session . I ngh the court to adjourn until morning the plea that he was not fueling Well. The real reason was that he could not finish the argument in a single evening and did not wish an intervening night to Divide it judge Safford was Resolute and the evening session was held. The room was again packed by the principal ladies and gentlemen the City. Court was opened and . Pugh was not present. The judge ordered his name called at the window which was done but he did not appear. The judges Flawie began to Redden with suppressed Wrath and a hurried conversation was held Between the other attorneys for the Defenso and a delay a few moments was asked. Major Blackburn went out and in a few moments returned with . Pugh who held a Small Bible in his hands. He took his place amid the most breath Lesa quiet opened the Book and commenced to read passages and extracts stringing them together with desultory remarks.

Kex Iniste be Pooh. I noticed in Don Piatt a last san Day a letter to the news a suggestion in regard to the democrats placing a statue Pugh As a companion piece to it the statue Garfield in the Rotunda the Capitol. If the artist could impart to cold Marble the glow and Fervour and intensity Pugh non that most memorable Day his tire when with the Defiance the Swiss Tell when he struck the tyrants cup from its Elevation and trampled upon it he stood in that unexampled convention democrats which nominated valian Dignam for governor the East Terrace the Cape Tol e would achieve a Triumph Whitfi would give him immortality. Governor Tod was leaning out one. Of toe East windows the Senate chamber. Pugh seeing him turned to face him and not Refl and adopted As his own the words for which Toni had been instrumental in having Vallandigham arrested. Then throwing the Energy and Force a Heron les into his Little body he exclaimed Quot if this is treason you know where to find Mel a conference was held that night in the giver nor a office to consider the advisability Pugh a arrest but it was concluded that it was not prudent in toe inflamed condition the Public mind. If it had been attempted nothing could have prevented civil War in Ohio. The state has not prod i the peer Pugh in brilliancy and ability. He went to the legislature a Mere boy in 1848. Under Peculiar circumstances. Tie whig had divided Hamilton county into legislative districts each District electing a member. The Dera Cratt disregarded the division and elected All the members one ticket the clerk the court was a Democrat and gave the certificates to the members Nis own a party. The democrats made a coalition with the free oiled As the old a oltion i Sci then Decsi abated themselves and the Hamilton Nonty democrats held their places. It was a Stormy see Sion and resulted in the demo racy electing Chase to the Senate with the Aid Townsend and Morse the two free spoilers. By this Dicker the democrats got certain positions and 8am Medary became state Printer. Townsend is still living and is the professor agriculture in the state University at Colum bus.

The leading candidates in this contest were sex Iov Emor Allen and colonel Manypenny. Or. Pugh had the solid vote Hamlet county and nothing else. Govt not Bartley had a few votes As did Charley Sweetzer Delaware. After a protracted struggle colonel Manypenny withdrew and his support went to Pugh giving him the nomination. The result this con right St created a Coop new Between Allen an Manypenny which was Only Dispi called after Aleen become governor. He said to the writer one Day a i want in some Graceful manner to assure colonel Nancyi it Enny that our old animosities Are dead and How thoroughly 1 appreciate his integrity and Worth character. What can we do for him that he will accept a a suggestion was made which was carried out and he was appoint etl president the Board construction the Centra Lunatic Asylum the Advance was met by colonel mane Penny in the same spirit in which it was made and they became warm friends and so remained to the death toe Noble old governor. _ quiz. John Bright and War debts. Peroration his recent address St the unt varsity Glasgow. Would you bid Etc that if Yon were to add up All the expenditure in the country since the begin Ming the Century and during the lifetime some thousands people now living the expenditure upon War and War debts the expenditure a military and naval War kind what do you suppose it comes to you could not guess and if i told you Yon would be no Wiser. It up tub to the Suin f4.41a.floq, a 000 Sterling a inca. I say you Wood be no Wiser. I do not know that we Are any Wiser from hearing that a Man is Worth a million except that he is a Rich Man. We do not know very Well what a million is. But what Are Twenty millions and what Are one Hundred millions what Are a thousand minions four thousand millions it is like speaking those Iraq astronomical distances which at lectures we heat so much and know so Littie. But if these military expenses have Home to �4,414, 0,000, How much has the real Gove raiment the civil go vern mint the country Cost during the same time it has Cost �1,01 2,000,Uoo. than one fifth All expenditure has been in our civil government More than for fifths have been expended in inst pre it ared for in the future. I ask you then what the people and what the millions we find poverty and misery. Liat does it mean when ail these families Are living i3 Homes one room to us who have several rooms and All the comforts life it Means More than i can describe and More than i will Artemid to enter into Ami As need begets need so in Verty and misery beget poverty and misery. So in All our great towns and not a Little in some our Small towns there Are misery and helplessness so much As i have described. In fact looking at the past to me it a a melancholy thing to look at. There is much it which excites in me not astonishment Only but horror. The fact is there passes before my eyes a vision Rai Lions Fani Iliew a not individuals but families fathers mothers and children ghastly and sorrow stricken passing in a never ending procession from their Cradle to their grave. Now i have to put to you a question. A Friend ours in the Comer there was a Little stirred because some the subjects which i treated seemed to take a political aspect. Some one has said that the two things All others in the world that Are Worth considering Worth talking about Are the subjects religion and a politics. I want to ask you whether the future is to be no better than the past. Do we March do we not to a brighter time r for myself it will not be possible for me to see it but you live before Yon Many you the Prospect witnessing toe transactions the Public policy your country for forty fifty even it May be for More years to come. On you and such As you depends greatly our future. What i want to ask you is whether you will look Back upon tiie Jmst and examine it carefully look round then in the present and see a lat exists and Endeavor if it be possible to get a better and a higher tone to our National policy for the future. To me it appears that during the last two centuries i keep myself to that because since that time tie Public opinion the country has Lead greatly increased influence we trod in the footsteps i Scarand accepted the Barli Arous policy Pagan Home while at the same time with vast and unconscious hypocrisy we have built thousands temples and have dedicated them to the Prince peace. I say with grief and shame that they who have ministered at his altars have for the most part these matters been absolutely dumb. Now i ask you this question shall we reverse this policy shall we contrive to build up the Honor the True Honor and True happiness our people a basis Juste ice morality and peace i plead not for the great and fur the Rich i plead for tha millions who live in limes Only one room. Can you answer me in the word which i i quoted years ago a somewhat like occasion Wonis which fell from the crowned minstrel who left us the psalms Quot the needy shall not always be forgotten the expectation the poor shall not perish imposed fashion note.
