One of tlie members of the State

informs us that the whisky ring of
Dayton has ot late been disturbing
the equilibrium of the society in
various ways. It seems that a sa
loon keeper -circulated a petition for
a license and in order to accomplish
ulently, whereupon the -temperauec
element remonstrated, and things
were earned to such an extent that
the affair finally landed in court, to
teat tlie veracity of certain parties
who had mode sworn statements.
We have it that the persons alleged
to have perjured .themselves, since
the trial have been tormenting the
village blacksmith, who is oiGooth
7jLmplar, and who played a'promi
neut part in their prosecution. Early
on a morning of lost week: they
slipped into Ids shop unobserved.
and placed iu the forge a heavy
blast of powder, which they though t
would explode, as soon its the- fire
was kindled. He wentto liis work
at the usual time, started his .fire,
and fortunately for him, he wo not
in the building when thebieft went;
oft. Other parties were, bufrscap
ed. uuhaniied. Damages to the
property were quite severe. Sever-,
ol other cowardly and rascally tricks
have also been performed. At this
