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.  _______ son of his father's first _____ (illegible)
