The Brag Game. -
This is the game invariably resorted
to by the Whigs on the eve of an elec
tion to deceive Democrats. They talk
loudly of Democrats bolting in every
part of the county, but we predict that
when voting time comes, like the Irisn-
- u : ni
man's flea, thev woi t be ih
Democrats, be not deceived by these
Whig pompinjays. Our majority in this
county over both Whigs and Free Soilers
is nearly one thousand, and it will be a
burning shame if Democrats, by staying
at home, suffer a single man on the tick
et to be defeated. ' -
Keep i I bt fore the People !
That Jacob Crall, the Whig candi
date for Treasurer, although claiming
to be R Democrat, is running in opposi
tion to John Smurr, the-regularly nom-
iaated Democratic candidate.
Ilr. Crallaiid Smurr.
THEIR CLAIMS COMPARED! READ,
FREEMEN, READ J I
At the risk of incurring the displeas
ure of a certain class of voters, we here
beg . leave to institute a comparison be
tween the claims of Mr. Crail and Mr.
Smurr, the candidates for Treasurer..
We think this is due from us as the Ed
itor of the organ of the Democracy of
this county. We shall endeavor to do it
calmly and dispassionately, and, at the
same time, respectfully.
Mr. Cball is a good citiien honest
and upright in all his dealings, for ought
we know, and qualified in every respect
to discharge the duties of Treasurer.
The same may be said of Mr. Smurr,
Mr. Crali. is a wealthy man one of the
wealthiest citizens of our town, and one
of the heaviest stockholders in the Ex
change Bank of this place. Mr. Smcrr,
on the contrary, is a man in moderate
circumstances-, and needs the office. Mr.
Crali. is an old citizen of the county,
and bis private character is above re
proach. Mr. Smurr is also a man of
unimpeachable integrity, and an old citi
sen of the county. . Mr. S. has been for
years a Justice of the Peace in Orange
township, in which capacity he has gain
cd for himself a high reputation. Few
cases have ever been appealed from his
decisions and 'been sustaiued. - As a
business man, he has always shown him
self competent, honest and faithful.' No
man can make any distinction between
them as business men and citizens. Then
wherein do they differ ? In this, and
in this only. Mr. Crall is the candi
date on tho Whig ticket, and depends
for hi" election upon Whig votes; Mr
Smurr" is the candidate on the Demo
cratic ticket, and depends for his elec
tion upon Democratic votes. Therefore,
the only issue is, between Whiggery and
Democracy. Therefore, all who desire
the success of Democratic men and meas
ures, should vote for Mr. Smurr.
Bat, it may be claimed that Mr. Crall
is also a Democrat. We propose to ex
amine into his claims to Democracy, and,
in doing so, we shall not state a single
fact that Mr. C. himself will deny. Mr.
Crall was elected a Delegate to the
Democratic Congressional Convention.
He was allowed - to ., hold his seat in
that Convention upon his stating that he
had not accepted the nomination of the
Fusion Convention. He voted for Mr.
Johnson in" that Convention, and yet
he is now acting with men who are mov
ing heaven and earth to defeat Mr.
Johnsqn and "elect Philemon Bliss.
He is running on the Whig ticket, as
the regularly nominated candidate of
that party. He is strongly supported
by the Whig press in this town. His
bosom friends are Whigs. If Mr, Crall
wished to be .elected Treasurer as a
Democrat, why did he not cofne before
the Primary Meetings, and stand his
chance for nomination ? If he did not
intend to abide the choice of the Prima
ry Meetings, why did he vote there at .
all ? If he is a Democrat, why does he
not conform to the usages of the party ?
He that is not for us. is against us. Mr.
C. may be able to reconcile all these in-
concistencies, but we confess we can't
see how he will do it'
Mr. Smurr, on the other hand, is an !
old-line Democrat. Daring a long and
eventful life, he has .never faltered in
his support of Democratic principles.
His has not been a cold and formal sup
port, but an active and zealous support.
He now" comes before the Democracy,
and asks them to reward him for these
long years of hard service in the Demo
cratic cause. .He comes before you,
Democrats, as the regularly-nominated
Democratic candidate, And having con
formed to all the usages of the party,
has he not a right to expect that you
will support him ? Nay has he not a
right to expect an active and zealous
support ? Democrats, answer at the
ballot box. next Tuesday, by giving him
a good, round, old-fashioned Democratio
majority .- - - . -
A Sharp Stick.

country as Ion? as it is out of power,

Democratic party dare be I"
Ah, Joshua, that is a most cruel stab I
And yet, is there an intelligent Free
Soiler in Ashland County who will gain
say the truthfulness of the declaration ?
You, all know this to be trie, and . yet
you nave abanaonea your organization
and are now " cheek by jowl " with this
same Whig party, which, when in power
" is more pro-slavery than the Demo-
vratic varty dare be !" We make no
pretensions to being a competent advi
ser in the premises, but respectfully sub
mit whether your present course is very
honorable to yourselves or In accordance
with your anti-slavery professions. Mil
lard Fillmore was as loud in his anti
slavery professions while out of power,
as any man north of Mason's and Dixon's
line : and when in power, signed the
whole of the Compromise measures, the
Fugitive" Slave Law included, and he
was unanimously sustained by the Whig
party. What assurance have you that
Philemon Bliss will not " go and do
likewise ?" He was never known as an
anti-slavery man until he wanted an of
fice. Are such conversions reliable ?
Mr. Bliss turned Free Soiler to get of

braska bill while in office, nd without
hope of reward. Which, of the twain,

Old Wayne all Right.
The Democracy of Wayne County are
up and doing. . On Tuesday e.vening last,
they held a very enthusiastic meeting in
Wooeter. They go into .the fight de
termined to conquer. The - camp fires
are burning and that, too, with an in
tensity that will consume what litfle of
Whiggery that may be found in that
county. After this election Whigs will
even -deny their association with the Fu
sion Party. The Wayne Co.. Demo

greeted with a -storm of applause which
shook the old court house to its founda
tions. After silence "was restored, Mr.
Johnson proceeded to address the audi
ence. We took no notes of his speech,
and are unable to report it. It was a
calm, candid and dignified defence of
his course on the exciting issues of the
last Congress. It was a noble, high
toned and manly appeal to the sober
judgment aDd reasoning faculties of

with a mind that soared abovrpetty li
bellers, he exhorted all to rally around
the banner of democracy, stand by the
time-honored land-marks of the repub

the danger of sectional parties and sec
tional agitation. and referred to the fare
well warning of the great and good
Washington, against sectional strife and
geographical parties, or the agitation of
subjects that tend to array onC portion
of the Union against the other. . He had
in the discharge of his duties at Wash
ington, attempted to' represent the views
of his constituents, and on all important
subjects had voted according to the im
plied instructions of his district. He'
was elected as a democrat, and as such
he had voted on party, issues. On mi
nor matters he had been left free to act
as his judgment should direct,, and on
such subjects he had acted fearlessly,
openly, independently, and with a view
to the public good. He had never dodged
a vote nor would he. If they expeted
him to vote in Congress, as Tom, Dick
and Harry voted, because such persons
voted so, they had elected the wrong
man. He was untrammelled and voted,
when uninstructed, as he thought best.
His speech was listened to with atten
tion, and was frequently and loudly ap
Look out for Eoorbacks !
Democrats, look out for all manner of
Whig Roorbacks between this and the
election ! It is one of the games almost
invariably resorted to ou the eve of elec
tions, to defeat the Democratic nomi
nees. J. lie private character of our can
didates will be traduced, and the basest
and most infamous lies will be put in
circulation in regard to them." It has
already been resorted to iu various parts
of the county, and will be kept up until
the election. Some of these have been
exposed through our columns, but oth
ers must necessarily go uncontradicted,
for their name is legion. . Democrats,
be not deceived by these electioneering
lies. The calumniators dare not meet
the men whom they belie and slander,
face to face. No but they will prowl
about the country like so many whipped
curs, and retail their villainous slang
about men whose characters are above
reproach, knowing that before their in
famous, lies can be contradicted they
will have succeeded in their nefarious
designs, or their victims will be triumph
antly elected. - Democrats, ?shall this
game succeed ? Will you allow your
selves to commit an irreparable - wrong
by voting against thede men? Recol
lect that if these men are defeated, these
charges will be taken as true hereafter,
and - their characters ruined forever !
Democrats of Ashland, we call upon you
to administer a rebuke to these slander
ers, that they will remember to their
dying day. Spurn them from your fire
sides, as you would an adder. Their
very breath is corruption. '
The " Tickle me and I'll
Tickle you" Game.
We arc at a loss, sometimes, what
course to pursue . towards these Fusion
ists whether to get mad and " pitch in
to them ," or to sit down and watch the
Hard Cider ' work ." The last maneu
ver of fhe Fusion-Whig party, of which
we have heard, is certainly laughable.
Only think of it, reader! . Old blue-
light Whigs perambulating the county,
offering to swap votes with Democrats
that is, the Whigs offer to go for our
Coupty ticket if Democrats will go for
Bliss! Now ain't that cool ?-Whigs
offering to vote for our county ticket,
when every mother's son of 'em is cer
tain to be eleoted without their votes, on
condition that the Democrats will help
to send Granny Bliss to Congress ! Ah,
gentlemen, that is an artful dodge, but
it won't win. Democrats, look out for
these truck-and-dicker gentlemen on
election dav. These promises are easi
er made than kept, especially bjr Whig
politicians. No, no, fellow Democrats !
Let us have none of this "fusion."
There's not a man engaged in" it, but
what will be ashamed to own it before
two years. . -Vote the whole ticket, and
nothing but the ticket. It merits, and
we believe it will receive, the united sup
port f the party.
Democrats, Don't Bolt!
Democrats, don't bolt next Tuesday,
We appeal to your past experience, and
6av have you ever gained' anything by
bolting ? Nay, have you not often had
abundant cause to regret that you ever
bolted the regular nominees of. the par
ty ? Judge of the future by the past,
and go the whole ticket. The Demoo
racy never had a better ticket presented
to them for their sunrageB,' and should
receive their united support.
No Party ! No Caucus !
Onr "Whig friends seem determined
to " out Herod, Herod ," in insisting on
the point that they belong to no party
that they will support no " Caucus nom
inations ," &c. Well, that sounds very
well, but is not the Fusion ticket com
posed of the strongest politicians in the
Whig and Free Soil parties ? nave
they not been all their lives most bitter
partizans ? Now, when the Whigs wish
to succeed, they unite with the Free
Soil party. Is that no party? This
" no party " party is not arrayed against
the Democratic party. ' Oh, no, of course
not! What a striking difference there
is between tweedle-dum and tweedle-dee !
Another strong argument is, no Cau
cus nominations. Well, let's weigh the
Fusion party in their own scales, and
see which will be found wanting. The
Whig-Fusion ticket was put in uomina
nation by a Convention composed of forty
five delegates, which assembled in the
office of J.'W. Smith, Esq. This fact,
we presume, will not be denied. : These
delegates were appointed by perhaps
ten or twenty persons, in the respective
townships. In this township there was
not over twenty-five or thirty 'persons
at the meeting to appoint delegates, "and
yet the Whig and Free Soil vote in this
township is nearly three hundred ! The
Democratic ticket was put in nomination
by one thousand voters of Ashland coun
ty, who expressed their choice at the
ballot box. We ask every sensible, hon
est, intelligent and candid mau of either
party, which ticket was nominated by a
Caucus ? . Further comment is unneces
Giddings on Whiggery.
Giddings, in his late speech at Erie,
made use of the following strong lan
guage in relation to the Whig party :
" It (the Whig party.) has done more
to extend slavery and the slave trade,
than any Democratio Administration has
ever done. They have brought upon us
the infamous Fugitive Slave Law, and
they stand pledged to eternize it. J. hey
have squandered more funds in Galphin
claims thau perhaps all administrations
that have gone before ."
Free Soilers iu Ashland County will
please bear in mind, that this " same old
coon " which " Old Gid " compliments
so highly, is the one with which they
have joined hands in this county, to
extend slavery and the slave trade ,"

From all parts of the c'ounty we hear
the cheering news that the Democracy
are marshalling their forces for the grand
contest next Tuesday. All that is want
ing to insure the success of the Demo
cratic ticket, is to get the Democrats
out. Let the Democracy go to work in
the right spirit determined to conquer

We go in for presenting the township
that shall give the largest vote for the
entire Democratic ticket, in proportion
the number of votes cast, with an appro

be a noble struggle for this prize ! The
township that wins it, will be covered
all over with glory !
Democrats, beware of counterfeit tick
ets ! They will be circulated by thou
sands throughout the county, on the
morning of the election. Democrats,
look well to your tickets before voting.
Get them from some one in whom you
have implicit confidence. The man who
would deceive another by furnishing him
with a spurious ticket, not only commits
a moral wrong but violates the laws of
his country, and deserves the contempt
of every honest man. Again we say,
look well to your tickets

The 'cool Weather has driven into

being now " withdrawn from the prov
inces," is preparing for a brilliant fall
and winter campaign at home. People
talk of hard times, and the fancies in

ven expose; but, nevertheless, the thea
ters and other places of amusement are
drawing, in the aggregate, about $12,

light-hearted population ; thousands are
won and lost, daily, on the National race
course, and it commercial disaster is re
ally staring 'us in the face, Vo meet its
frowns like laughing philosophers ' -
A great loss has been ' sustained by
the Protestant Episcopal Church, in this
diocess, in the death of." Bishop Wain
wright, who expired at 4, P. M.,' on
the 21st inst., after about a month's ill
ness. . lie was, in the first instance, at
tacked, with billions remittant fever,
which subseqaently assumed a typhoid
character. Bishop W. was an English
man. He was "born in Liverpool, in
1793 and was, therefore, in his sixty
second year at the time of his disease.
By this event the Episcopalians of the
diocess arc again left without a ' Bishop,
and another provisional appointment be
comes necessary. It is not unlikely that
the vacant mitre will fall to the lot of
the Rev. D. Vinton, of Brooklyn.
Death has claimed a victim from tbe
Press, as well as from the Church, du
ring the present week. . Mr. Samuel
Nichols, editor and (iu part) proprietor
of the Sunday Mercury, was fatally in
jured on Monday night in consequence
of missing his footing while attempting
to get into a city railroad car." The ve
hicle was in motion and poor Nichols
falling under the grooved wheel, was so
fearfully mangled that he died in about
nine hours after the accident. His re
mains were interred on Thursday in
Greenwood. . .A-large number of his fel

ic in New York a man of high integ

the catastrophe, he was talking of writing
a strong article against the folly and
madness of attempting to mount the for
ward platform of a car while under way ;
and yet, strange to say, this very act of
temerity was the cause of his death -Mr.

They are albfrom St. Pierre, Newfbund

banks for the protection of the 'French
fisheries, it is said. It is quite as like

out for Russian prizes. The Acheron

The political leaders of every stripe
are industciously stirring the political
cauldron. The nomination of Clark
and Raymond, as the Whig candidates
for Governor and Lieutenant Governor,
is considered a Free Soil triumph. It
is said the Know Nothings will support
tho Whig ticket, but of this I " Know
Nothing." The confusion of tongues in
the Tower of Babel was not a finer sam
ple of discord than is the conflict of po
litical factions and opinions in the State
of New York There are at least ten
distinct organizations in the field, and
there is but one subject upon which they
agree, viz :. that the possession' of office
is the most blessed of all political coo
sumations. ; '
There are six murder cases on the
calendar of the Court of Assessions for
the October term. " Dr. Graham of
New Orleans, who killed Col. Lorino,
at the St Nicholas Hotel, about two
months ago, will be tried some time du
ring -the term for ; that offence." His
counsel wiil attempt to show that Col.
Loring was the assailant and hope to ob
tain a verdict of "justifiable homicide"
but if the testimony adduced on the trial
should be 'identical with that given on
the Coroner's inquest, such a result is
impossible. Dr. Graham is said' to be
very wealthy ; and if justice were a com
modity to be bought and sold might pos
sibly escape punishment.

In our Court of Common Pleas a ver
dict for $5,000 has recently been obtain
ed by Messrs. Hole and MurdOck, ' a

agencyin this city, for injuring the char
acter of the house by libelous represen
tations. It will be recolected that a
verdict for 810,000 was rendered some
years ago in favor of a western concern
for a similar libel, perpetrated by one
of the spies of (I believe) the same agen

--The great statesman, Henry Clay,
throughout his whole life, supported the
principles of the Nebraska bill. He
held that the restriction imposed by tho
Missouri Compromise, was unconstitu
tional. And, had he been living, who
can doubt after reading the following
extracts from his speeches, that he would
have sustained and voted for the law or
