The average majority of the Union State Ticket, in this county, is about 390. The majorities of the Union County Ticket vary from 268 to 430.
"As Marietta goes, so goes the county." Marietta Tp. gave Cox a majority of 388- just his majority in the county.
Metgs Co. gives 900 Union maj.
The Democrats carry Ross County by 178 majority, and the Unionists the District by 93 majority.
Mount Vernon, Morgan's place of residence, gave
Cox a majority of 284-- Union gain 60.
A torpedo for oil mining purposes has
been invented, the design whereof "is to
shatter, laterally the rock by which it is
surrounded, opening fissures on all sides
for a distance of several feet. and inevitably
breaking into or opening communication
with any deposits of oil that may lie within
reach of the explosion."
The Moorehead Oil Co., are sinking a
shaft 6 by 8 feet, on the Rayley farm, near
Macksburg. They are already down 45 ft.
The intention is to go 60 feet. and then mine
laterally. Fifteen barrels of oil have already
been gathered. It bids fair to be a
great success. At a distance of about 500
feet from the shaft they are sinking a well
which is now 625 feet deep with a good
show of oil.
Buckeye State Petroleum Co., vs. Wm.
Crumbley. In this case the Court of Common
Pleas, held at its present session, that
the sinking of a conductor to the rock, within
the time limited for commencement, was
a good commencement under a lease, requiring excavating and boring- when followed
by work in good faith. Ewart &
Shaw, for PIff's- M.D. Follet, for defence.
PARLOR MATCHES. - House Keepers and
every body else who use a match, will be
particularly delighted with this article. It
has three qualities which place it ahead of
all others yet produced, and we only need
mention them to convince the public of their
great superiority. These are no suffocating
fumes, an instantaneous and brilliant light,
and no failure. They are for sale a Winchester's
Our citizens can now have the "latest
news" to digest with their coffee, by sending
to Winchester's for the Daily Cincinnati
Times, which is received at 6 o'clock
in the morning.
TEACHER'S INSTITUTE- An energetic effort
is being made by the Teachers of Marietta
to have a Teachers' Institute held in
this city, the same to commence Oct. 24th,
and end Oct. 27th.
While we do not propose to make this a
partizan paper we cannot resist the temptation
to tell a first rate joke which happened
at one of the polls in this city, on Tuesday
last. A good butcher who had been complaining
seriously that if the Union ticket
was elected negro's would be permitted to
vote, stepped up to a venerable man who
held in his hand a Union ticket, and said
to him, "Mr. - here's a ticket printed
on different paper." "Oh," said Mr-
"this suits me" "Yes, but" reiterated he
of the meat market, "this is printed on different
paper." This is the whitest," replies
Mr._ as he handed his "Union
State Ticket" to the Judge.
Still another excellent one occurred
at the same polls. A gentleman of undoubted
Morgan proclivities, who had been reading
a Cox ticket and had jocularly pronounced
the same to be a "disunion ticket," extended
it towards the judge, who, supposing
that it was his vote, took it and made a deposit
thereof in the ballot-box, at the same
time calling the name of the voter. "That's
not my vote!" exclaimed Mr.- at the
same time looking like "death on a pale
horse" "How can it be fixed?" was the
question that immediately followed. "By
refusing to count one Union ticket," said
the voter. But alas, for him, the inexorable
law gives no discretion to the judge, and
the ticket had to be counted. The ticket
once deposited became an inevitable joke.
Although a loss to the voter, the incident
created considerable amusement throughout
the city, among men of all parties.
It's bad enough to have good poetry
thrust anonymously into an editor's face;
but when such maudlin stuff as that signed
"J" is received, we must pass it by in disgust.
As a sample, we give the following extract_
"Reader can you tell me of some quiet place
Some lovely vale with brooklet mnmuring lo,
Where willows ore its mossie banks are bent,
Some quiet place where I can go
And in sweet peace can bilde my lovely tent."
There, isn't that splendid? Lest our
readers should be unable to comply with
"J's" request, we would suggest that about
as quiet a place as he or she (as "J's" case
may be,) could find would he the shores of
Accokeek creek in Virginia. It's a nice
little "brooklet" filled with pollywoggles,
bull-frogs, water-snakes, eels, dead horses,
mules and "sich.: True, no
-Willows ore its mossie banks are bent,"
but there are an immense number of huge
pine stumps standing around, which cast
their protracted shadows far into the stream
- that is as far as they can get for the
width thereof. Go, "J." go!
A couple of relics of the rebellion may
be seen at Winchester's Bookstore. One
of them is a large card containing printed
rules and regulations of the infamous prison
pen at Andersonville, Georgia,
signed "H. Wirz, Capt. commanding Prison,"
which was captured from Wirz's office, by
Capt W.C. Buck, of this city, then a prisoner,
when the whole rebel gang skedadled
on the approach of Wilson's raiders. The
other is a lithographed fac-simile copy of a
little paper printed with a pen, by our
prisoners at Camp Ford, Tyler, Texas, during
the weary hours of imprisonment in 1864.
Both of them should find a place in our
MASONIC.- The "free and accepted" gentlemen
are the most industrious portion of
our citizens. They meet again to-night at
the Hall on Front street, for "work," and
they want all the "brethren" in town to help
them. We don't know whether this invitation
is on the principle that "many hands
make light work," or not, and we are afraid
they won't let us in to see.
PICK POCKETS carried on their business
pretty extensively at the Menagerie. We
have heard of one gentleman who lost two
hundred and fifty dollars. This is the second
time within a few weeks that he has
been unfortunate in losing money. Another
person, whose name we did not learn, was
mulcted in the sum of one hundred and
fifty-five dollars. A third lost his pocketbook,
but fortunately had nothing in it---
People should be careful how they visit
crowded places, with either money or jewelry,
as they invariably run a great risk.
On Thursday next "Palace" Sleeping
Cars will be attached to the night train on
the M. & C. R. R. C.W. Hall will be one
of the conductors--- a good appointment.
