Co!. J. V, Moitsr., ot Lake County. 1 1..,'
nominee for Senainr, formerly represented
this County (bul'oru its division) in iho t
House of Representatives, and waa once
.dectod Spuakar of ihat body. Ho was
Iho member of thu Hou:,o fi .no Luke, during
iho session of ltjlS-'J, und, with Hon. X. '
K, Towiish.ind, of Lorain, constituted tliut
famous "Balunco of Power," by whoso uio.
Salmon P. Chuso was eluded lo llio l.'niti il ,
States Senate. Thong!, be was much eeu-1
sured, even by members of Ins own parly. I
for bis course at that time, wo liavo reason
lo beliovo that whatever prejudice and bit
tornoss of fooling it occasinn.nl, have passed
way. The Republicans of this Dititiict.
no matter how t hoy may have felt a few
years ago, will not now bo dibpnsed lo blame
Col. Morse for having hum. instrumental in
electing Salmon P. Cliato to tlio United
hiatus Senate. On tho contrary, if wo mis
take not, they will bo glad of tho assurance
iho past atlords, that bu is rigb', now If
it shall full to his lot to bo again instru
ment ul in eluding tlio samo distinguished
individual to the sumo high ofli.'o, bo will
bo ooo of tlio most bo tun .to of met., and
will huvo roaSiio In bo proud nf bis surviees
in tho cause of Freedom. Col. Morso has
the ability and txperienco necessary lo
inako a good Senator, und wo bespeak for
him a hearty support fioin the Republicans
of tho District.
Tho nomination of Col. Erastus Srnxccn.
of this County, for Mouther of llio Board
of Equalit itiou, is an excellent one. Col.
Sponcor is too well known :.. our loaders,
. . r X-
to ronuiro uuy coiiimoodalioii from us. No
ono who know, him. will quos.iot. his nines.
for tho post for which ho has boon nomina-

Cuntarville Convention ennforrud an honor
open ono of tho most efficient woiking men

On tbe trial of thn c .so it was proved tlmt
Wilson went lo iho bouse of Mrs. Hicks, in

1 1. other wus opposed to thoir marriage, bo
stole her away and brought her lo tbo bouse
of the Rev John Guilford, tn whom bo sold
her for u slave. On his return tn Columbus,
