Good News from Noble County
SARAHSVILLE, Noble County, Ohio
DEAR SIR: - Yesterday the Black Republicans had, or
rather were to have, a Great Mass Meeting in this place.
For two weeks past they have been circulating ___ing hand-bills,
announcing that Tom Ford, Judge Cowan, and other
distinguished speakers, would be present to address the
"assembled multitude." Every possible effort was made to
get out a "crowd." The day came, but alas! not the crowd
or speakers. There were, all told, only 196 present.
Discovering that the announced speakers were not present, quite
a umber left the meeting. The few who remained were
addressed by two or three third-rate politicians who 'shrieked'
most lustily for 'freedom,' etc. The "crowd" then
disappeared, apparently disgusted and much discouraged.
Buchanan is gaining daily - Fremont cannot get
Chase's vote in this county. I know of many who voted
for Chase that are now for Buchanan; besides there
is a Fillmore party here. Very respectfully.

On Saturday morning last, in Jefferson Township, Noble
county, Ohio, a farmer named Jacob Martel was killed by
his eldest son, Joseph a young man about thirty years of
age. The son's story is that, in a quarrel with his
father, the latter struck at him with a chair, and that he
struck his father once with a fire shovel, in self-defense.
Upon examination of the father's head, however, it was
discovered that the skull was fractured in three different
places, either one being sufficient to cause death. The
parricide is now in jail. He has a wife and five children.
His father left a second wife with two children. _______
