There was a Sunday school picnic across the fiver at Joe Thompson's Which of course divided the crowd. The meeting of the republican county committee, Saturday, reached unanimous conclusions on every point to be disposed of, and Was -so pleasant and satisfactory as to be an - argument in favor of the settlement of 'all questions of conventions by the full committee.
