A. Seever who accepts the position as he says, on account of his ill health.
He says he he is going to advocate the reduction of "salarys," and the
reduction of the number of "revenew" officers. The Captain is in a good
business; and we wish him all manner of success, hoping, however, that he
will consult Webster's Dictionary occasionally, as it is a useful teacher of
English orthography.-State Register.

daughter of Wm. Veerson of Marion county was shot in the ankle a few days
since. The Blade says an old lady was also injured by the same cause.
- Ira C. Mitchell preached a few Sabbaths ago at Montezuma, and the
Republican takes occasion, very properly, to say the teachings of that ?
copperhead are not orthodox, and will not be received by thinking men.
