Thomas F. Marshal, are lawyers. Why
did they not attend to the subject? Was
it not as much Mr. Butler's duty as it was

of the Legislature, and the other public
functionaries, nothing to do with the government of the State? Is the whole labor

business would be much better attended to.
Let them either do this, or let them make

Having occasion in the course of his remarks to
introduce the correspondence between the confidential committee of the hard cider candidate
and the Union Association, published in our paper to day, we are not a little surprised to learn,
that he was interrupted by a Reverend minister
of tLe gospel, a resident of this county, w ho was
present and who not only pronounced the correspondence counterfeit and false, but actually
gave the lie to tho speaker. The Reverend gentleman went even further, and stated upon the
authority of his own personal knowledge, that
O. M. Spencer, a member of the committee,
"had died, six years ago, in Hamilton county,
Ohio" while the people well know that ho is
now a citizen of Cincinnati and a candidate for
Congress. Is such conduct, wc would ask, becoming in the character of a divine is it becoming in tho character of any man who has not
