Law and Order Meeting in Front of
the Court House at 2 o'clock P. M.,
By reference to (be notioe of the Democratlo
Central committee, to be fonnd elsewhere in
this paper, It will be seen that the meeting
hitherto called for this evening, at the City
Ball, has been changed as to time and place
and the same will be held this afternoon at two
o'clock, la front of the Court House.
The occasion which has lnduoed this meeting,
should gather to it every friend of law and or--'
der within the limits of the city and the adja
oenl country. The time has come when men
mart take their stand. The time when the
question la to be settled whether the constitu
tional rlghti of the citizens are to be main
tained, or Mob Law and Despotism are to pre
vail, is at hand. From it we cannot esoape,
and, therefore, we mast meet It.
The Democratlo party Is the friend of Law
and Order, and holds that nnder the Constitu
tion and Laws, every remedy for the protection
of life, liberty and property is guaranteed, and
equally nnder vhs same Constitution and Laws,
ample provision is made for the punishment of
offenses and crimes oi all kinds. Its
members demand the protection of Law
for themselves, conoeding the same right to
those who may differ with them on measures of
policy,' whether cf war or peace. But tbeir
opponents have held, through their presses and
by their oratorr, that in these times the consti
tutional rights of Democrats man be abridged,
and that violence and Mob Law shall take the
place of judicial tribunals and courts of justice.
On Tharsdav eveninc last, the fint dlanrdar
was manifested in this city by an attempt to
destroy the Crlti and the Statuman. This
attempt was Incited by the incessant efforts of
the Abolition papers and orators who constantly
endeavor to Inflame the people and lead them
to acta of violence, and It should and mast be
the last. The meeting to-day should not fall
to speak plainly and pointedly on this question
No more violence of this character mast be al
: lowed, and oar opponents must be made to dis
tlnotly understand this; and If the laws of the land
are Insufflolent to sb'.eld Democrats, they mnst
: adopt snob means as will be sufficient and ef
fective for that purpose. Democrats are for
order, and will go as far as the farthest to
maintain it; bat tbey mast be met lo the same
spirit by tneir opponents. If not, aad a differ
ent measure is meted ont to tbem, tbey most
maintain and vindicate their rights as best tbey
It Is not oar province to speak for the meet
ing of to day. We assume as a fact, however,
that while It will do nothing to Instigate vlo-
lenoe; while It will Inculcate obedience to law
in all things, as the rale of conduct for Its
members, ft will at the same time let it be dis
tlnclly understood, that bo injustice, wrong, or
injury to the persons and propesty of members
of the Democratic party will be hereafter tol
rated. ' ' '

General Order No. 16.]
Having been Informed, and partly witnessed
thai the publication office belonging to the
Critia, and the printing office belonging ti the
Ohio StaUman, newspapers published in this'
city, were last night broken Into by a mob or
disorderly persons, composed partly of citiiens
and partly of soldiers, who unlawfully and wan
only destroyed fnrniture, papers, books and
newspaper files of the former office, and were
only prevented from the commission of similar
outrages at the Statesman office, by the fear ol
being deteoted and arrested, I desire to offer a
word of advice to the citizens, and to warn the
soldiers of the penalties they incur by such out
rageous violations of the law.
To suoh citizens, as can so far forget their
obligations to society and the respect due to
the laws, which are as much the safeguard oi
their own persons and property, as of the persons
and property of their neighbors, the Just ooo
damnation and disapproval of their oonduct,
by the Intelligent and law respecting portion of
ommunity, of all parties, convey a wholesome
admonition as well as a merited rebuke; but
such oltiiens should recollect, that the oon
damnation and disapproval of their condoct by
the wise and good of aU parties, Is not the worst
punishment to which tbey expose themsolv es
The mob violenoa whioh they Invoke to day
against their neighbors, may be, by their neigh
bors, to-morrow Invoked against them Retal
iation is the law of the lawless. j
To the soldiers who participated in last
sight's outrages and violence, I have to say,
jour oonduct is strangely Inconsistent with ybur
duty, and the holy purpose for which your conn
try put arms In your hands. Your mission is to
opioid the laws, not to violate them. And it was
proudly presumed that, however unreasoning
the armies of despots, the Amerioan soldiers
who rushed by hundreds of thonsands to the
eld, to uphold the cause of popular govern,
meat, and the Integrity of the Union, imperil
ed by foul and wlaked rebellioa, were Intelli
gent enough to comprehend and appreciate the
character of the Issue an Issue Involving the
tight and security of Individuals, as wall' as
the integrity of the Republic. How littU In
consonance with the character of the duties
yet have assumed, and the mission yon hare
taken upon you to fulfill, was your oonduot, last
Bight, la lending yourselves to the cowardly at
tack, and felonious outrage committed on the
property of private Individuals. Forgetting
your duties as soldiers, you hare become rlot-
an and burglars; and instead of being, as yon
pught to be, the protestors of the rights of the
eitliens, you bare beoome their assailants. '
Bui I desire you to reoolleot that it Is not in
admonitions that the rules and regulations of
the service deal with rioters fi plunderers.
It will be seen by paragraph 787 of the Regu
lations, that the offense of whioh you have
been guilty ie, in the language of the Regula
tions I have quoted, "of such enormity as to
admit of no remission of the awful punishment
whioh the military law awards against offenses
of this nature."
Against the perpetration of such offenses, in
future, I now warn you. The persons and
property of the olt'ions are saored In the eyes
both of civil and military law, and any outrage
or assault npon them, will be visited by inflict
ing upon the perpetrators, the moment they are
deteoted, the extremest penalty authorized by

An Overwhelming Impromptu Demonstration.
Gov. Midabv was absent from borne on
Thursday night, when the outrageous assault
was made upon bis office, having visited Cln
cinnati that day to be present at a surgical
operation to be performed on one of his grand
children. Last evening, net before dark, It was
ascertained that he wonld return home in the
nine and a half P..M. train. Immediately
many Democrats of the city determined to meet
blm at the depot and escort him to bis resi
dence; and for that purpose several hundred,
accompanied by HiMMZRiitcH's band, carry
ing the Fifth Ward banner, departed in that
direotion about half past eight o'clock. From
this indication and no other notice, the news
ran, and as it was received, Ihe people took up
the line of march, and thus the crowd Increne
ed at the depot, until by the time the train ar
rived, there were tboneaiida on hand. 1
The Governor was taken from the cars by the
people and borne on tholr shoulders to a car
riage in waiting, from which the horses were
disengaged, abdbe was hauled by the populace,
preceded by the band aad followed by an im
mense procession np High street to the Ameri
can, where Judge Thuimam welcomed him home
in a neat and very appropriate speech. In ref
erence to Ihe occurrence which brought out the
demonstration and in treating tbe subject
throughout, Judge Tdusman was exceedingly
dUtinot, clear and happy, and all thitt ha said
was well received by ihe vst audience
Gov. Mbdabv in responding was very much
affected and indeed embarrassed, by the untx
pected and extraordinary demonstration, aiid
spoke with much feeling. His remarks were
well received and were very appropriate. Of
all the nnmerons speeches we have heard Gov.
Medary make, his brief speech last evening
was tbe moat pertlnect and appropriate
Al the close of Gov. Mbdabt's speech, other
gentlemen were called, and amoDg them Hon
Milton Satlm, who responded in a. very happy
We were not in a position to take notes, and
hence are not prepared to give aoy extended
abstract of the several speeches, and indeed
our space to-night would not admit of it, were
we otherwise prepared. .
Tbe mass of men at that meeting was a noble
spectacle. It was composed of patriot citizens
who were Indignant at the outrage, and who
oame together to bear their testimony against
It. It was composed of firm and true men-
lovers of tbe Union and law-abiding citizens,
who are col disposed to trample on tbe rights
of others, and are determined lo maintain and
defend their own.
An Overwhelming Impromptu Demonstration. The Late So-Called "Union Meetings"--
What They Really Were.

most radioal Abolition sheets In Ohio. It has

real revolutionary designs under tbt mask of
The editor of tbe Sentinel, in tbo last num
ber of his paper, appears to be well satisfied
with tbe so-called "Union meetings" recently
held in Cleveland, Cincinnati, Indianapolis', and
elsewhere.' - True, they did not quite come up,
demonstratively and enthusiastically, to the
highest point of revolutionary "high pressure
radicalism; bnt atlll the Sentinel man thinks
tbey will do Tbe speeches and resolutions
being "unqualifiedly for tbe support of the
Government the Administration and ail"
(there is a world of meaning in that little word
ill), the public expression at these so-called
Union meetings, the Sentintl says, "In every
way was In snob a course of policy as Repnbli
can meetings at this period would adopt." It
bears testimony to the fact, wblctuoo candid
man will dispute, that the name "Union," as
need in getting up these meetings, was only a
trick or play upon tbe word, and that the meet
logs were really Republican or Abolition nnder
another name. The Sentinel sari:
Under the name of Union meetings, all was
said and done that would probably be done at
Republican meetings of a general character.
The Sentinel sees indications of a pretty de
cldei tendency to tbe organizilioo of a party
under the name of Union party, "npon a basis,"
as it says, "not differing muob from that npon
which the Republicans wonld like to re-organize
more than the name whioh of course," the
Sentinel add, "is a matter of minor impor
tance." It is not disposed to fall out about the
name, so that the Republican or Abolition policy
ie retained, and this, it is satisfied, will be done
lo the new Union party now under process of
re formation. After stating the position of the
Abolitionist as being on tbe side of tbe Ad
ministration in its Abolition polioy, and that
this policy' most be carried out, the Sentinel
closes Its article thus: '
In such position it is not material by what
name we are called. We should prefer tbe term
Republican: but If "Union" is made to mea
the same thing, we shall not quurel about it,
with aoy one.
It Is a curious phenomenon In language that an
attempt should be made to palm off the word
Union" to mean the same thing as "Abolition,"
wbioh Is in reality Its direct opposite. Bat any
thing for a mask to oonoeal a visage so disgust

In the Sbmatb, on Friday morning, Maroh

was resumed, and continued till noon, when that
body adjourned until Tuesday, Maroh 10th.
Judge Lang made an able and powerful speech
In opposition to tbe policy of the Administra
tion. His allusion to the mob violence In this
oity, on Thursday night, as being the direct re
sult of the teaohlog of the speakers at the so-
called "Union" meeting' of the 3d lost., was
most scathing and scorching. Too Judge will

In the House, after prayer by the Rev. Mr.
Goodwin, the oommittee on Pabiio Printing re
ported back the communication of John Geary
and Son, declining to publish the official proceed
ings of the Legislature without pay. It was
laid on the table, the committee not having
made a recommendation as to the matter.
Mr. Zinn, from the committee on Federal Rela
tions, repotted back the petition of oitlzens of
Darke county, praying for an armistice with
a resolution, Thai an armiitioe is inexpedient,
and that the war should be prosecuted until the
rebellion Is put down. Mr. Fiagg offered tbe
following Joint resolution as a substitute for
the committee's resolution i .
Reaolved, By the General Attembly of the State
of Ohio, That we will bave no dissolution of
the Union that we .will have no armistice
that we can fight as long as rebels and traitors

Radical Legislation—Stand by the Constitution.
The Journal of Commerce, in an artiole on
the 4th of March, 1863 a day which marked
Ihe close of the first two yeare of a Republican
Administration, and the expiration of a Con
gross, whose entire history is of the most ex
traordinary character, and whose legislation has
been of a character hitherto unknown in tho
land of Washington, says:
It is with astonishment that we behold the
scene around ns. Who, for example, would
bave dreamed two years ago that the legisla
tion of tbe United States would within twenty
four mouths place in tbe bands of one nun, the
Secretary pf tbe Trearnry, a power over the
pabiio aid private finances of tbe nation which
is not possessed by any emperor, czar, or king
in any other civilized, nay, in any barbarous
oountryf Yetsuoh power exists to day by the
legislation of tbe expiring Congress. Who
would have imagined tiro years ago tbat the
legislation of an American Congress would
place in the hands oi one man, the President,
a power over the person of the citizen, without
restrainl of law or remedy by law, such as Is
only exercised by autocrats oi tbe old world?
Yet such power is designed to be conferred by
the legislation of the expiring Congress. It is
vin to enumerate tbe aula wbioh are intended
to centralize power and increase Ihe preroga
tives of tbe Presidency. They are known to
all our citizens, who look in dumb astonish
ment on the swift progress of the ship of State
down tbe rapids of radical legislation.
To tbe question iV bat Is to be done? the
Journal of Commerce replies by stating its own
determination thus, whioh is that of every tru
ly loyal and patriotic man in this fearfully rev
We bave one chart by which we are deter
mined to guide our own course, and we com
mend It to our fellow oltizons. It is the Consti
tution. If it will not always determine what
Is right, it will often decide what is wrong.
Reject every political plan of action, party
platform, or suggestions about tbe war or
against tho war, which is unconstitutional. Let
all action be strictly under tbe Constitution.
The Instant we consent to abandon it, that in
stant the gull yawns befcre us and we plunge
downward. Our radioal friends bave already
abandoned it. If we, tbe loyal people, abandon
It, then comes swift destruction.
Thz Cbisis Officb Mobbid. Sam Medary's
editorial rooms in tbe Crm$ building were com
pletely "cleaned ont" by a mob of soldiers last
nignt amounting to two Hundred in number.
The destruction of windows, doors, stoves, files,
shelves, books, etc., was complete. A violent
storm of snow at tbe time gave a lively coloring
to tne scene, ftledary bad gone lo Uincinnau
xm tne noon train yesterday. The gang ol iol
diers crept soitly along on tne snow till tbey
came to tbe oinoe, whioh is situated on tbe cor
oer of High and Gay streets. They circled
around tbe door with fixed bayonets and de
clared death on the man that interrupted. The
doors were first stove in and then the windows,
after wbioh tbe vile files of corruption and
treason were sent bv thousands into the streets.
The ground for many rods around was loaded
with the contents of the office. Tbe crowd war
disappointed at not finding any type, not know

paper were done at the office ot the State Printer,

When they were informed of this they sallied
lorth lo their work of destruction, and attack

Statctman press rooms, where tbe outside of

was not sufficient to give them entrance and
before the second was made tbe police ar
rived on the spot and remonstrated till they
Feeling a little relieved, and fearing some
trouble, the soldiers now scattered "every one
to his own way." So far as weconld see there
were bnt three or four citizens in tbe crowd.

ceedingsand arrived on the ground soon after
to look into things, bnt tbe wreck was complete
and the soldiers disported. -
Tbe reunion and festival of tbe High Street

commencement of tbe affair, and many of tbe

A large police foroe collected as soon as it
was known, and the Captain, Ed. Davis, ao
sared Gen. Cooper If be would takeoare of the
offending soldiers, the police would look after
the citizens engaged. .
The excitement on the streets became great,
and crowds visited the rains. Among ill pres

created its Immense and unprecedented sales
of over one million bottles annually I It is
still sold at 25 cents in large bottles. Two
million bottles can' easily be sold io a year
when it is again known tbat tbe Kathairon is
not only the moot dolightfnl hair dressing in
the world, bnt that it cleanses tbe scalp) of
scurf and dandruff, gives tbe hair a lively,
rich, luxnrlant growth, and prevents it from
turning gray. These are considerations worth
knowing. Tbo Kathairon has been tested for
over twelve years, and is warranted as de
scribed. Any lady who values a beautiful bead
of hair will rise the Kathairon. It is finely
perfumed, cheap and valuable. It is sold by
all respectable dealers throughout the world.
