BY CHARLES MACKAY,
John LiltU-joUn Was staunch and Btrong, -UprigUt
oud downright scorning Wroug;
lie gave, good weight and paid his way,
II thought for himself and he said his say,
W henever a rascal strove to pass
Instead of silver, money of brass,
lie took his hammer, and said with a frown
"Ta COIN W Bl'CltlOCS NAIL IT DOWN."
John Llttlejohn was firm and true:
You could not cheat him in 'two and two."
When foolish argucrs might and main.
Darkened and twisted th$ clear and plain,
lie aaw Iliro' the mazes of their speech
The simple thought beyond their reach
And. crushing their logic, said with a frown,
"The coin is spumous nailitdown.
John Littleiohn maintained the richt.
Thro' storm and shine, in the world's des
When fools or quacks desired hia Tote,
'Dorsed with arguments learned by rote,
Or, by coaxing, threats or promise tried
To gain his support to the wrongful side.
"Xav, nay," said John, with an angry
The coin ibsitriocu sail it down.
When told that events might justify
A false and crooked policy,
That a decent hope -of future good
Might excuse departure from rectitude,
And a lie, if wkite, was a email offense,
To be forgiven by men of sense;
"Nay, nay." said John, with a sigh and a
"The coin is srrKiors nail it down."
Whenever the world our eyes would blind
With false pretense of such a kind . -
With Humbug, Cant and Bigotry
Of a spurious sham philosophy
With Wrong dressed up in guiso of right,
And Darkness passing itself for Light,
Let us Imitate John, and 'exclaim with a
"The coin is spurious na'il it down."
(From the N. Yr Revolution, May 21.)
The Republican Party Daguerreotyped
by a Radical and "Loyal" Pen.
Kt-publinans elected Andrew JoUnson for
party succts; they impeached him for party
au cts: mid since the day the scepter of pow
er came Into their hands, they have worked
for party success rather than the nations
While they have deceived the people with
the cry of Constitutional amendments, loyal
ty, negro suffrage, and impeachment, they
have shown themselves disloyal to the grand
principles of our government, by their at
tempts to drag down the Federal Constitu
tion to their low platform; to force negro
suffrage on the South while repudiating it in
the Northern Slates; and after proving the
President guilty of high crimes and misde
meanors, strangling impeachment with their
own hands. ,
And now the handwriting on the wall
warns them that they are "weighed in the
balance and found wanting." The Repub.
lican party stands to-day with its ranks bro
ken, divided, distracted, blasted, and the
scepter of power has passed from it forever.
But thia is no cause of sorrow, for the soon
er this party is scattered to -the four winds of
heaven,, tho sooner will the scales fall from
the eves, of the people, and they will see
that thir leaders have been but blind leaders
of the blind.
Jeremy Bentham says, "the people cannot
be too distrustful of their rulers," When
the American people learn that men and par
tics are nothing unless based on principle,
and that -whether tinder, a Republican or
Democratic dynasty, we have the same re
sults, they will awakfn to the responsibility
of self government. - ' .
. ' As we turn over the pages of hjstory we
can see how nations, groaning under taxa
tion, ignorance and poverty, lmve been de
luded, blinded and dri roved, without
dreaming that we, ourselves, are tn-tlay the
thoughtless victims of selfish and crazy rulers
who think only of their own aggrandize
ment. Just as Rome, with fetes and feasts,
holidays and deadly combats between man
and beasts, with gladiatorial exhibijions in
crowded amphitheaters, turned the people's
thought from their wrongs so do our rulers
to-dayv with caucuses, conventions, cam
paigns, lmieachmeqt trials, and the coarse
brutality of the press and politicians, amuse
the people; degrade the public taste, and
destroy the virtue of the nation, Unthink
ing leaders inflame the North against rebel-
dom, and damn every man who dares put
a plea for' juHli.-e and mercy to the South,
with the unmeaning name of "copperhead.
To ruiLsc the people's .wrath they point them
to t!te l.wiru of their brave sires and sons
bleaching on all those Southern plains, for-
getliii Hi ul with their own hands they built
tlirti M-piilflin where our brave dead now
s!i i ii. Tin'' rliain that held the black boy
the tV';ra!a'le9 of Florida and the slave girl
in a New Orleans market was fastened round
their neck by New England's sons & daugh
tcrs. Tbrouirh our avarice and selhshness
the land of orange groves and flowers lies
bleedine and desolate to-day. Blame
the South, but our own constitutions, creeds
and codes. , '
But whiles we ended with the sword
slavery of brute force,, and overturned
Southern oligarchy, by cunning legixlation
we have substituted another form of slavery,
in our own system of finance. In; our na
tional debt and taxation; we have placed U
whole labor of the country" at the niercy of
monied aristocracy of banks, bondholder,
and land monopolists, Having just escaped
from the yoke of 400,000 slaveholders,
are about to bow our necks to the yoke
400,000 'lioudhol Jew. Flushed with con
quest, these "High Art Swindlers" have
I (ought up the nation's 'virtue and choked
jirr prophets wi ' have" dared to speak. '

THE LAKE ERIE DISASTER.
Collision of the "Morning Star" and
THRILLING SCENES & INCIDENTS.
The telegraph has briefly announced
the collision on Saturday night.'the
20th ult., of the steamer Morning Star
with the barque Cortland, on Lake
Erie, thirty miles from Cleveland, and
the l'vis of twenty lives. The Cleve
iand Herald gives tho following par
titulars of the disaster:
We understand that the steamer
was moving- slower than her usual
speed, owing to the darkness ot the
night, when the -collision took place,
but when she struck the barque the
crash was terrific. It was like run-
nit.g aaainst a solid wall, the heavy
cariro of Iron ore, and the momentum
ol the two vewKel coming together,
crushing in the hnw ot the steamer.
as thpug;-: vt h.d lieeii made of paste
board, 'l'lie barque whs .struck by the
steamer almost at right angles. Cap
tain Viger says the barque was not
seen until the steamer was right on
her. The first intimation those on
the boat had of the barque's presence
was hearirg the bell ring, but it was
too late to prevent the collision.
Edward McDonald, a lumber mer
chant of Chicago, states that after the
collision the officers of the Star tho't
there wa3 no danger. ; The., ladies
were partially dressed and were in
the after part of the cabin. Saw the
Misses Patchen; they were on the
stern. Said to them, "I'll try to save
you." 1 hey. were somewhat fright
ened. "The Star went down so rapidly
that Mr. McDonald jumped over the
rail and called to the Misses Patchen
to follow him., but they did not. Mr.
McDonald slipped over on to the rud
der and pushed off, his life-preserver
got round on the wrong side; he
reached a door and was in the water
about two hours, when he was picked
up by those on the hurricane deck,
where he stayed three hours until
picked up by th nice. He thinks
Capt. Viger did hia duty. After he
got off the raft or hurricane deck-
Capt. Viger said It was a thick night;
that the bark had no lights out, and
he did not see her until he got on top
of her; heard her bell twice but was
too near to back; cut her through to
the water's edge and carried away her
cabin. The captain of the bark said,
I had just as good lights as ever
were carried. I saw the steamer and
kept on my course; rang my bell
three times, put my wheel hard up
just befo-e they struck."
The statement of Mr. T. K. J'hase,
of Cleveland, a passenger on the Star,
Is the fullest and most interesting giv
en of the disaster. He was awakened
by the shock, or the ringing of the
steamer's bell, and at once went out
into the cabin. Here he was met by
the Misses Patchen, who occupied the
room next to' ; him, and who asked
eagerly what was, the jmatler, and
what should be done. Mr. Chase re
plied that there was probably no se
nous aanger, ana tnat ne would go
below, and if. there was any danger,
would return and inform them. Mr
C. then went on to the deck just aft
Of the' wheel-libuse, on the "starboard
side, and looking ahead could just see
between the steamer and the stern of
the bark as the vessels drifted apart.
He then went down into the engine
room, where the engineer, Mr. Wat
son, was standing at his with the bar
in his hand ready to start the engine.
xnis neuia just as JJir. Chase came
up. Mr. Chase asked Watson:
"What's the matter ?" The engineer
replied ; "That was a pre tty hard
knock for Bomebody." , Mr. Chase
asked: "Well, who got It, we or the
other?" "The ntlier nnp. T riiH9 "
replied Watson "we're all. right.
The engine worked well, and on this
the engineer was satisfied. Mr. Chase,
after talking with the engineer a mo
ment longer, askea n the boat was
making water, and was told by Wat
son that he didn't think she was, or if
she was.it was a little and would
make no trouble. Mr. Chase, how
ever, noticed the sinking of the bow
gradually, and going up to the cabin
told the Misses Patchen that though
there was no immediate' danger, the
accideat might become serious, and it
was best, to put on life-preserveis. He
assisted both to put them on. They
were not excited beyond presence of
mind, and one of them not being
dressed, asked Mr. Chase if she had
better put on her clothing. The old
est sister said they had no one with
whom they were acquainted, and ask
ed-if they might stay with him, and
Mr. Chase promised to assist them as
much as possible. He then went out
tm the deck again, and saw the stern
of the bark come crashing into the
wheel of the Star, pounding aDd grind
ing the wheel to pieces. 'Then the
second mate of the bark, came, or was
landed some way, on the Star, his face
badly cut, his lower jaw smashed, his
tongue hanging out, and hU face cov
ered with blood. Mr. Chase went
again to the engjne room, and asked
Watson how the water - was making.
The reply was that It was making fast
but he thought it could be kept back.
The pumps werevworking, and the
engineer was hopeful and confident.
Mr. Chase went forward, and as 'he
did so, noticed the inclination of the
boat forward. Looking down the lorT
ward companion way, he saw that the
water was rushing in at frightful rate,
"as if her whole side was stove in."
Mr. Chase says he had noticed at the
first a grating sound along the steam
er's keel, and had : thought that she
was running over a schooner. Now
he ascertained that this noise was the
paying out ot the cables forward, both
by the force of the terrible 'shock, one
of them falling over the bark, the
other going into the lake, and both
cables paying out" of course as the
ateamtr moved. 1' Ail this time the en
gineer was at his post, working his
engine iri obedience to' the bells from
thepUoi; 0ause- Mr .-.Chase, seeing
the incoming water forward rushed
back jnsf as an assistant engineer cam
down saying there were orders to get
out a boaCMr. Chase aald to the en
gineer that the boat would not be
abova-wate two minutes longer, and
Mr. Watson, jumping from hie en-
gine room and looking forward said t
My iGod, that's so r Both ; then
started toward the upper cabin; and
Mr. Chase went at once to the' Misses
Patchen, saying to 'them that ;they
had better go overboard now, !as it
musPbe done, and if they went at
once they might get" away from the
boat, so as not - to be "- drawn down
with her. Guided by Mr. Chase, they
with several other ladies went out on
the boat aft, and he led the way; Into
the water. As he rose to the surface
after jumping- in, he saw that nearly
all the ladies had also jumped in.
One of the. life-preservers on one of
the Misses Patchen had become dis
arranged, and was on her shoulder.
instead of under the arm, and .Mr.
Chase adjusted this. Very soon the
steamer went down, and at once'Mr.
Chase and the four or five ladies in his
in mediate vicinity were caught in
numerous small eddies, whirled about
and partially separated.- Mr. C. does
not think any were taken down by
the boat of those near him. The wa
ter, which had been very comfortable,
became cold after the disturbance by
the sinking of the steamer, and sev
eral of the ladies were taken with
cramp. JNot long alter, too, a furious
gale sprung up, and scattered the
floating sufferers in the darkness.
Mr. Chase drifted off almost, watch
ing the light on the bark, and hearing
the distressing cries for help' from
tnose m the water. A. door came
floating by, and one of the Misses
Patchen was got partly on it, so as to
lie on it pretty securely. The gale.
however, soon got up a sea, and ren
dered Blight security still slighter.
Sometimes Mr. Chase could see the
bark's, light, and sometimes it would
appear to go out, but this, he thinks
may have been owing somewhat to
his being blinded- by the water dri
ving in his face. Finally, a large
piece of the upper deck floated near,
and Mr. Chase succeeded In getting
on it. . Then came a box of bread or
bia-cuit, and this he got on his rait,
A. cnair came next, and this was se
cured. Various pieces from the wreck
came by., and Mr. Chase worked in
dustriously in tying these together on
his raft with pieces of cord that had
come up on fragments of the cabin.
The increasing sea threatened to tear
in pieces the portion of the deck he
was on, but the canvass covering on
the upper side held it together. ; The
cri8 for help were growing fainter
and fewer as one after another grew
weak and then sunk forever. No one
was in sight. Mr. Chase heard still
the criea of some stouter than the rest,
and one voice especially cheering Mrs
Chittington. Mr. Chase was growing
weak himself and the rolling sea made
him sea 6ick, He vomited, and be
came almost unconscious, but finally
recovered. He then fixed the chair on
his raft, and as the sea went down
partially, he got into the chair, and
putting his feet on the bread-box. was
enabled almost to keep out of the wa
ter. Very soon after gettinir into the
water, one of his feet became entan
gled in a lady's dress, and to free him
self and her, he had pulled off his
boots, A vessel, evidently a sail ves
sel passed by, hut too far away to
hear any outcries. 1 Mr. Chase, how
ever, was becoming more comforta
ble, and being well convinced that he
could float all day if hecessarv. was
not greatly disappointed at this. Fi
nally tne it. jm. mee's lights were
seen coming down directly toward
Mr. Chase, and he watched anxiously
Nearer and nearer she came, until he
calculated that if she kept her course
ten minutes longer she would be
alongside his raft. Just then, how
ever, she suddenly., headed off, ran
short distance in a new direction, then
changed again and finally lay to.
Then Mn Chase knew that she had
discovered the wreck, and was wait
ing for daylight. . Finally a boat from
the Bice came up and took him off.
Mr. Chase arrived at bis home in this
city belore his family knew of the
terrible disaster. He is yet suffering
from the chilly wetting and sea-sick
ness, but otherwise is not injured be
yond a slight bruise on one knee from
a piece of timber which struck him
from the wreck. Mr. Chase, when
picked up, had floated a mile or so
away, and had kept himself from
drifting further by means of a slip of
board, which he used as a paddle. It
was just twenty minutes to 1 o'clock
when Mr. Chase first went to the'en

The following was communicated to the
Washington City Nat'ionai. Isteujgkxoeb.
On the night of the 30th of March, G. W.
Ashhurn was killed in a negro house of ill
fame in the 'city of Columbus, Georgia.
From the difference known to'exist between
Ashburn and many of his political associ
ates, his violent and overbearing . temper.
and the remarks made by his. relatives
intimate friends, the suspicion that he wit
killed by members ; of -his -own. party, I'nr
political reasons and purposes,inTe!i:iU;lj--obtained
in the Community: ' . -
One Bennett, who luu!t 'been an active
Radical parUzau, a prominent member of
the Loyal League, was in the house at the
time of the killing. This man was heard to
make a threat against the life of Ashburn
on the Saturday previous te his death. ; His
statements as to the cause of his being , in
the house, and as to the differences which
existed betwqen himself and Ashburn, about
some matters of money, and his subsequent
t-i induct 'in endeavoring to suborn negroes
to Bwear the deed against certain citizens of
the place, pointed to him very strongly as
an accomplice, at least in the transaction.
An affidavit was made by a citizen who
heard Bennett make the threat against the
life of Ashburn, before Samuel R. Bostock,
a justice of the peace appointed by General
Meade, who failed to issue a warrant for
the arrest of Bennett. This man Bostock,
and his bailiff Thomas Grier, who has since
been appointed Marshal of the city by Gen
eral Meade, were very active in getting ne
groes to swear the deed against certain par
ties, two of whom are now in confinement.
J. G. Maule, of Alabama, a member of the
Reconstruction Convention of Georgia, and
a member elect to the Legislature of Geor
gia, has since stated that he knew the killing
was te take place on that night, and that he
left town beforehand.
Solomon Woodfield, who Bennett states,
was in the house a short time previous to
the killing of Ashburn, and who was known
to be on bad terms with Ashburn, on ac
count of certain moneyed transactions
tween them, left the city shortly after
killing, and has gone to parts unknown.
Some time after the killing, and after
Military Governor of Georgia had offered
an unusually large reward for the apprehen
sion of the murderers, several of the most
prominent and respectable young gentlemen
of Columbus were arrested by military au
thority, together with two negroes, who had
been identified with the Democratic party,
and, after a confinement of several days,
were discharged on heavy baiL without
charge or accusation. ...
Subsequently two of the white men were
rearrested, togelhei with the two negroes;
were sent to Fort Pulaski, confined in cells,
fed on soldiers' rations; and denied all access
to Or communication with counsel or friends.
.Later still, another young gentleman was
arrested and sent to the same place, on the
same conditions, and Bennett and a white'
prostitude, who were in the house on the
night of the killing, w;ere also sent to Fur,.
Pulaski. ' . , -
When the matter of these arrests was
. . .
brought to the attention qf Congress and the
country, by the Hon. Mr. Beck, of Ken
tucky, three of the young gentlemen origin
ally arrested, viz: W. L Chipley, Dr. Kirck
sey, and Columbus Bedell, and another
young gentleman, Cliff B. Grimes by name,
were anested, and are now confined in the
military barracks at Atlanta, awaiting trial

After the arrest of these parties a military
Uicer pf the staff of General Meade, togeth
er with Captain Mills, commanding the post
at Columbus, proceeded to arrest and con
fine a large number of negroes of both sex
es; and to examine the same in the manner
specified and described in papers hereunto
attached. Six ol the negroes so arrested
and examined have been sent to Atlanta un
der military guard, to be used, as supposed,
as witnesses against the parties accused.
The parties named as above are confined
in separate apartments, and arc denied all
communication with friends, save under
military surveillance, and all opportunity to
conter with counsel as to their defense. A
lady, a relative of one of the prisoners, was
denied, upon application, the privilege of
even seeing the prisoners in the presence of
an officer, though she premised not to speak
to them, and only desired to see them, in
order that she might report tln-ir situation to
friends and families.
All of the persons so arrested and confin
ed, and who are sought by extraordinaay
and unusual means to be unplicated in the
commission of a crime, of which they are
believed to be entirely innocent by all who
kuow them, have occupied positions of pro

In the can vass, next antumn, th.
ard some States that are morally su
for the Democrats, with any lair D

these States it is certuin that the fu' .ti now

that belore the people Mr. Peudel-
is the most popular candidal!
can be run. But we grant that ;
States we have named, any ui
tionable Democratic candidate
of the electoral vote.
Then we come to the States 'that
may be carried, and may be . '
These are Ohio, Indiana, Illhi-:; t .

Slates that, if honest, will not sa. . : -Geo.
H. Pendleton is not twent. .
cent stronger in them than-- iy
other man talked of for the Presit.t-n-cy.
Pendleton is sure to carry Oi.i
and Indiana, by a vote greater than
the party vote. " If any Democrat can
carry Illinois it Is Pendleton. Jt is
our cool judgment that he can carry'
that State on his Greenback platform. f
We are equally sure that even Horatio '
Semou'r, with all his deserved popu-'
larity, on other questions were he a J
candidate, which he distinctly is not
- could not carry Illinois nor, in all
probability, Ohio er Indiana, ' carry- '
Ing the weighgt he does as the favor- j
ito of the bond -holders. .'!
Then all the little gold States such f;
as Nevada, are as a matter of course,
for Pendleton, on the question of pay- f.
ing the five twenties in greenbacks. m
Aud Michigan and Wisconsin, and -
even Minnesota, aro so on fire on thia IT,
urgent financial question, that, we be-
lieve,' they are most likely to give J
him their electoral vote which they J
will give no mere doubtful advocate '
of whatthey seek. f"
Again, in New Hampshire some of ;
the most powerful men among the ;
voters tell us, plumply, they will fight
their vote n and carry ' the State for
"Pendleton and Greenbacks te pay
off the" 1 onds" but will not make the
like exertion for any one not represen
ting Pendleton's platform.
The position is then thus: The
States that are In doubt can be carried
for Pendleton, and cannot be carried
for any one opposed , to . him or Ju
souiu of the. cases, may be carried for
him, and will uot even try for any one
else. What is the oont-lusion tu be
