Just here we are reminded of a story which

who'll:Id the well deserved reputation of be

took a journey, and when some distance from
home was suddenly accosted by a sfranger
who cried Out, as he began stripping off his
coat, "Either you must kill me or I must kill
you." "What do you mean 1" asked Ate
other. "I mean jupt this," said the stranger,
"that ten years 801 , 1 took an oath if I ever
met a man who lbOked as mean as I do, one
of us would have tAlie; and by —, you

party hesitated a. minute, eyed his antagonist
closely, and replied, in the accents of de

please, for if I look anything like you I don't
deserve to live."

The new jail is to occupy the site ;of the

the exterior. In the rear of - this, of the same

the jail proper. It is to be threestorieq high,
with brick walls 11l inches thick. A wall 16
feet high, extending from near the rear of
the Sheriff'S house Will enclose the jail yard,
giving a considerable space in which the
prisoners can be allowed to refresh them
selves in the open air, without danger of es
cape.: A part of the yard will be ,oecuided
by the Oldhonses of the Sheriff's thmil), and
by th - 6 prisooenelatuadry. The laundry has •

baCe'ti wing at each side, two stories high,
which are to be used as kitchen, keeper's
office, Se. - The eutrauce to the jail will be
through the keeper's office, at the side, there/
being no communication whatever from the
Sat - ill's dwelling, except a small crevice
for food from the kitchen. The jail is to be
heated by furnaces, and no feature has been
neglected for securing perfect warmth and
ventilation. Water will be carried through
every part of the building, there will be bath'
rooms on - each• floor, with - hot and cold
waterconveniences, and everything required
to preserve the building pure and the health
of the inmates good has been provided for.
The windows will be on the East and West
sides. They are to have strong double
gratings, and will bent' half inch rougbglass,
which allows the light o enter, but prevents
anything from Lein seen through the
panes. Each window wilt be within two
feet of the floor, thas . making the interior
more cheerful, while detracting nothing •
from the security of the building.. The jail
is to have a cellar 8 1-2' feet deep, which is
to be used for the furnaces and. storing fuel.
A large sewer, connecting with that of Fifth
street, will run beneath the building, at some
distailee below the cellar floor.
..*The first floor will have twelve cells, each
.licS feet, !Raking six fronting each row 'of
windows. A corridor runs through the cen

• ST6NII7O PETITIONS.—nOW (MINI it happen
that so many.: persons,, otherwise , , conscien
tious citizens, will allow theniselves to be in
du to sign almost any paper presented to
hem, without reflecting whether its object
is' right or wrong? The practice is so com
mon that those who are best acquainted with
hu'man nature have come to look upon all
petitions or remonstrances as merely so much
scribbled paper, knowing .s they do that, as
a general thing, two-thhts of the signers
neither know nor care to what they affix their
names. An amusing story, illustrating how
little weight documents of that' sort lire enti
tled to,is related by the New York Sun as
-having happened at Albany seyertd, years
ago: "Two members of the Legislature Were
disputing on the subject, when one of them
laid a wager of $lOO that within three days
Ihe could prodime a memorial with 100 veri
table names attached, asking the Legislature
to pass a law to hang the Rev. Di. Sprague,
one of the most distinguished clergymen at
the State capital. The Let was taken, the
money put up, and within the time the me
morial was produced. Of course, the memo
rialists neither knew nor cared what they
had signed. It will be quite safe for the new
administration to assume that nine-tenths of
the office-seeking petitions presented to, it
will be worth just about as much as that gOt
up f9r the hanging of Dr. Sprague." For in
stance, a certain applicant for a Post Office ,
appointment in our county, we understand . ,
has a p'etition something less than a mile
long, when the whole community knows
that not a tenth nor a twentieth port of the
people want him to have the position. ,
A QUESTION OF VERACITY .—The Gazette
and Republican are in a hot controversy over
the question of Mr. Lowry's, interest in the
latter. office. The Gazette refers to Mr. L.'s
allegation,Some time since, that he did not
own a share in the office, and compares it
with the recent statement of' the new propri
etor that he purchased that gentleman's in
terest among others. The Republican-an
swers by quoting a part of one of-Lowry's
letters, in which, he said.that "if necessary to
. sustain a high-toned, respectable party organ"
(such as the Republican) he "should give it
assistance." The necessity; it would seem,
did arise, for the Republican-admits that Mr.
L. afterwards "came to its aid to the amount
of six hundred dollars." It strikes us as
rather singular tlrt there should not be
enough intelligence among the seven- thou
sand Repnblican voters of this county to
stistain,a "high- toned, respectable party or
gan" Without calling upon Mr. Lowry's boun
ty ; but, then, that is not a part of the matter
in controversy, and, besides, some of them
'may differ,,with him as to what constitutes a
"high-toned, 4:espectabhi' party organ." Can
doPcomprOs us to say that thus far the Ga
zette has proven itself much r. 'more than a
tmach tV4r the Republican, z hoth it> point' of
style and statement. .
