FRIEND TINGLEY
The following is the substance of an instrument of writing given to me, in the presence of several respectable witnesses, by Aaron Thomas, some time ago.  As the original manuscript has been lost I cannot say it is an exact copy, but I can prove by the witnesses who were present at the signing of it, that it is the same in substance, except the omission of the words spoken, by said Thomas.  As my reputation is liable to be injured by the promulgation of the report, unless some explanation is given, I wish thee to publish this, and oblige thy friend.  John Dingee

I, Aaron Thomas, of Harrison county and state of Ohio, having circulated a slanderous report against John Dingee of the same county and state,      *     *      *     *     *     *     which I did not say with any intention that the report should have been spread to the injury of said Dingee's character, -  - I always considered him to stand as high in a moral point of view, as any of my acquaintance; and now, in justice to him, I am willing to say, that after investigating the cause that gave rise to the report, that I am satisfied I was altogether mistaken, and that there is no just grounds for the same.
I am induced to give publicity to the above in order that the report may go no further to the injury of the person charged.

OBITUARY
Died, on Tuesday evening the 23rd ult, Mr. James Rankin, in the 76 year of his age, and for 9 years inhabitant of this town.

In the death of Mr. Rankin we mourn the loss of a valuable citizen, a warm friend, and an exemplary Christian.  But why should we mourn …………

[this goes on to tell what a good Christian he was and etc.  If anyone wanting the obituary in it's entirety contact me and I will send you a copy.  I am only including genealogical data within the obituary]

During the past summer the infirmities of old age gradually impaired his constitution, and on Tuesday evening, without sickness or even a struggle, he exchanged this mortal for immortality……………………………….
On Wednesday his remains were committed to dust, attended by a numerous concourse of friends and acquaintance.

George Davenport, of Moorfield
Respectfully requests all those who are indebted to him, by note or book account, to come forward and settle the same previous to the first day of December next.  As he has it in contemplation to remove from this place in a short time, he wishes to close his concerns, and it is hoped that all those concerned will attend to this notice.  October 1, 1823

There will be a public meeting held at Georgetown in Shortcreek township, on Saturday the 4th of October next, for the purpose of forming a society for the detection of Horse thieves and other Rogues.  A general attendance is requested.

NOTICE
Those persons who have relations buried in the common graveyard adjoining the town of Cadiz, are requested to go and examine the situation of the graves, as the pens which have been erected over them will shortly be removed, after which, it is believed, few persons will be able to find where their friends have been deposited.

Married on Tuesday the 23d ult. By the Rev. J. Walker, Mr. Robert Hanna (widower,) of Mountpleasant O. to Mrs. Mary Hanna, (widow) daughter of Mr. Rowland Craig of this place.

FIRE
On Friday morning last between the hours of 12 and 1 o'clock, the new brick dwelling house of Rev. John Walker New Athens, was entirely consumed by fire.  Happily no lives were lost, and the principal part of the best furniture was, by great exertions, saved from the blames; but the most of the body clothes belonging to the family, a desk containing papers, some books, and other smaller articles were burnt.  The carpenters had just completed the work on the 2nd story on Thursday.  The fire is supposed to have communicated from some small shavings and saw dust which had been swept into the fire-place upstairs where some fire had been kindled late in the evening.  The precise amount of loss has not been fully determined, it must, however, have been considerable.

On Tuesday the 14 inst. the dwelling house of Henry Maffit of this township was entirely consumed by fire, together with the whole of it contents, the family being absent at the time.
