J look ot forced gajcty yet it was evi
dent to everyone who met hita
that he had great wrestling of spirit,
and that a new era was about te dawn
lor the hitherto wayward boy. O
human heart what a strange mysteri
ous enigma art thou ! How often dowu.
down in thy utmost depths springs up
wells ot genuine reformation that want
but a fanning from the flames of con
science to radiate man's whole Letog.
After an invigorating drive Irishman
andem te ooo fottt bufjro the other,
Pie found himself in front of tlio
ancestral hall of the Stays. Stop
ping but a moment to shake
the dust frorn ' nature s saodali,
he took .hold of the latch string and
immediately found himself in the
presence f father mother, sister,
sweetheartall. Our youog hero as
tb,o reader is aware was not reared in
the lap of luxury. He had not
been brought up with a silver spoon in
his mouth (Den llutler had been on a
gobbling tour ere this) and therefore was
not like those city hyfliers who wish the
services of Julius Cictar, Pompcy
S aash or aoojo other cohered citizen of
African c.ent to wiit on them, so he
tok off his owu hat and hung it up
oa the floor without assistance from
anybody.. The family all gathered
arounil the young neophite.
The greeting was neither that of the
happy household welcoming
returning prodigal, nor was it the
paioued worldling's co'd shake of the j
hands and the mcanless "how arc you"
to the returned one.
Pie took in the situation tutncdiitc
ly. and were it not theie was one oasis
in tho de?ert, one winsome smile from j
the girl of his heart, that sent the '
blood courting through his veins, he
would have departed from tho home of
his youth in disgust. Uut in this case
as in all other the potent charm of love
held him spellbound. II is affianced j
bride, his own Mary Ann from the j
classic regions of the Little Luckiamutc I
turned her eyes full on him, and across
his heart thereat there came a change j
as radical as it was instantaneous. J
Thrusting his hand4 into his poekots up
to the elbow, be addressed his "aged P."

Ann will go into heroics over the
thrilling escapades of Jiebald Stay, or
the wild hunter of Deer Creek. After
uttering the foregoing eloquent lany
guage, Piebald placed his arms akimbo,
and paced the floor with that peculiar
step of -a grass widow at her
first dance' after a divorce
whi'e the party present look on .half
in wonder-and half in awe. There

at length was broken by the bell like
tones of Mary Ann, who thus addressed
our hero. Nobly spoken hy unclose

Two Children Slain by their Father.

One of the most inhuman and brutal
murders ever perpetrated in this part
of the State was committed yester
day morning at seven o'el&ck, about
three miles 6outhwest of this place.
Krben G. Porter, the perpetrator of
this horrible deed, and his family, con
sisting of wife and two little daughters
aged three and one yeart., resided 10
the same house with his father-indaw
Mr. Henry F. Flickinger. At the
time the murder was committed Mrs.
Foster and her three brothers, Jacob,
John and Solomon, and her sister
Lydia, were in the house, and all ex
cept Mrs. Porter were engaged in crack
ing walnuts. Erben Porter after going
stairs and putting on three shirts, came
down with a hatchet, and seated him
self with the other members of the
family and commenced cracking the
nuts, showing nothing unusual in his
After a brief interval Mrs. Porter
went up stairs to attend to some work.
Porter quietly arose and walked into an
adjoining reom, where his oldest child
was alone ; after thuting the door he
struck the chilk three blows with the
edgo of tho sharp hatchet, cutting a
terrible gash at each stroke on the top
of the head, either of whtch would
j have pioduced almost instant death.
He then opened the door leading into
the room where the rest of the mem
ber were seated, and seized bis youn
est child, dragged it into the room, and
struck it two blow cn top ot the head
burying the hatchet deep into tho
brain at each stroke. lie then walked
into an adjoining rooaj and threw the
hatchet, all covered 'with bitod and
brains, in a wood box, put on his hat,
and started out of the house, passing,
as he did so, h;s wile, who, on hearing
ttie first child utter a pitiful cry as he
struck it the first blow, aud come down
tairs to she what w is wroug.
On sreing her husband throw 'down
the hatchet, she asked him what? he
had doue. His answer was that he
had done what he ought to have done
before, and he coull not help Jit. She
hurried to the r o n where the deed
had been comniitte 1, anil facing her
child reu lying iu their own blood, rati

neighbors, several of whom lived near,
aud were on hand in a few minutes.
Porter, after leaving the house, made
his way ut a rapid rate direct to this
place, and theuce to Leetonia. -c '
was followed to this place by one of
neigbors. Despatches were f-ent iu
every direction, and a large number of
persons started in pur-uit of him.
Immediately on the receipt of the de
spatch at Leetonia, it was placed in
Mar-hal Itolliu's hands, who, in about
twenty minutes, saw Porter crossing
the railroad track, and started after
him. Ou approaching him, Porter
turned round and gave himself up, ,
admitting that he had committed the
deed, and asksed the officer to protect
him from those who were in pursuit of
The Marshal brought the prison to
this place on the 9:55 p, m: train, and
he was immediately arraigned before
Josiah llohrbaugh, Esq., for hearing,
when ho pleaded not gilty to the
charge of wilful rcurder. After hear
ing tho testimony in tho case, the Jus
tice committed him to trial at the next
term of the Court of Commons Pleas, j
and sent him under a strong escort to
New Lisbon. J

is naturally quarrelsome, and when
under the influence of liquor, which he
frequently was, he was savage, often
turning his family out of the hoes ia

weather. He was a terror to his family
and feared by all his neighbors. .His !
victims were smart and lovely children, .

AROUND Til t WOliLD.
There arrived in Salt Lake a few
days ago a p trty of tourists, eleven in
numbe-. who lately come over from
England on a trip around the world.
What is novel about thisexpidition is
the manner iu which it s being man.
aged, the travelers all being put
through by an agent for a price agreed
upon befre leaving England. They are
traveling under a contract made with
the firm of Thomas Cook, Son & Jenk
ins, a firm whose business is to contract
with traveling parties' to conduct them
fora gpecific amount either tronnd the
world or to any point desired, partiea
so traveling being accompanied by. a t
courier who pays all the hotel bills and
traveling expenses of tbe party. Dr,
Thos. Cook, of the firm abovo named,
accompanies the present party for the
purpoio of extending his chain of
tourist arrangements and instructing
a courier who will conduct future :
pleaure seekers by this route. The
price per head is $2,000. This sum
includes all traveling expenses, such a
hotel bills, tranportation, checking
baggage, etc. Uy this means the
tourists are spared all trouble and.
annoyance, and have nothing to do but
to give themselves up to the enjoyment
of the trip, leaving all tho details to be
looked alter by the agent. They have
already visited Niagara and other t.
points of interest in America; w
