Correction.
In an editorial yesterday morning, we
atatrl that we had learned that at Spring
Valley, - in Greene County, Democratic
challengers had been driven away from
the' polls and . beaten. We Intended' to

The Sensation of the Hour.
The sensation mongers of New York
city and in Washington city, have given It
out that it Is seriously contemplated to
persuade Sktmocr and Blair to withdraw
Irom the Democratic National ticket, to
the end that Chief Justice Cbasb and John
Quinct Adams may be substituted.
Nothing would more gratify the Repub
lican'politicians than just such a move
ment, and we have no Idea that Democrats
could be caught by such a yull. There
were here In the city yesterday Democrats
from all parts of the State,, and they all
looked .upon the suggestion 'as. the very
heighth of foolishness. They were con
vinced, that where the Democracy would
gain one vote by It In Ohio they would lose
ten. To such a pioposition they would
not consent, because they feel It would in
sure the defeat of the Democracy, and re
sult iu the complete disorganization of the
party a disorganization that it would taki
years to repair. No party has grown iu
strength with the rapidity that the Demo
cratic party has grown since the termina
tion of ' the War, and its growth
will be continuous until victory shall
perch ' upon Its banners, - if the
party shall only be true to Itself its
principles and Its organization. It Is sira
ply a question of time when it shall tri
umpn. - xne ngnt sort of work cin give
us victory in November. It is not linpossi
ble; bnt a change oi front now a change
or candidates and ot principles will in
sure, and deservedly so, the defeat of the
party.
We will not believe that any sincere
Democrat would lend himself to any such
ssheme. Trimmers, time-servers and
poucy mongers, wno imagine that such a
change would bring about victory, and
with victory, office to themselves, might
favor It.
Republican Victory in November
Not Certain.
The Toledo Blade (Radical) in an edito
rial jollifying over the result of the elec
tions in Indiana, Ohio and Pennsylvania.
very truly says: ',
Yet our struggle has been sufficiently
severe, and our majorities sufficiently lim
ited to admonish us that we are not to sail
Into victory altogether on flowery beds of
ease. Li is wen that this is bo. - in politics
nothing should ever be taken for granted.
ejections are, in a general way, very un
certain things, and political prophets are
not untrequently made to weep over the
non-iuiniinient oi tneir noperui promises
Success in politics, as in every other de
partment of honorable enterprise, is largely
conditioned upon ceaseless vigilance ana
untiring labor. The success ot yesterday
in the voting States is a high compliment
to the zeal and industry of our friends, but
it ii by no means large enough to allow ps
to sit down in careless inactivity. There is
much work yet to be done, and we doubt
not that it will be well, wisely and trium
phantly accomplished."
It every Democrat in Ohio resolve, and
let him put that resolution Into execution,
that he will work harder to promote Demo
cratic success In November than he did to
promote Democratic success in October,
and victory will be won even in Ohio.
The great, final battle has not yet been
fought, and the recent political fights in
Pennsylvania and Indiana were merely
drawn battles.
The Prospects in November.
A special to the Cincinnati Enquirer, from
Washington, dated the 16th, contains the
following:
THE PROPOSED CHANGE OF FRONT DENOUNCED.
The artlcleln the Neio Tork World to
day suggesting a change in our Presiden
tial ticket is indignantly denounced by
Democrats. . , .' ' .
THE PROSPECTS IN NOVEMBER.
The later returns of the election show
that we have been beaten by a very small
majority, notwithstanding the stupendous
Radical frauds in the three great States.
With a fair vote it is still within our power
to succeed. Already the National Com
mittee is in receipt of many telezrams
from these States, promising a better fight
in November, accompanied with assur
ances of a triumph. A few timid persons
commenting over results and yielding to
the shock ot the moment, visited General
Hancock to-day, and propounded the ques
tion whether be would accept the nomina
tion it Seymour declined. HancocK treated
the proposition as Impertinent. Chase's
name is also used by gossips in this con
nection, but it is an absurd idea.
RADICAL POLICY AND CHEATERY IN PENNSYLVANIA.
SYLVANIA.
In addition to the frauds Dract'sed in
Pennsylvania, it has leaked out that It was
part of the Radical policy to manipulate
tne telegraphic news so as to create the
impression that their State bad gone Radi
cal by an immense majority, trusting these
nret impressions would nave an effect.. The
latter news shows that but for the auda
cious frauds in Philadelphia and Alleghe
ny, me state would nave gone Democratic.
More than 15 000 votes of naturalized citi
zens were improperly rejected in that
SUte.

Letter from Dublin.
[Correspondence of the Ohio Statesman]
DUBLIN, O., Oct. 15, 1868.
As the public
generally have read two accounts pub
lished in your invaluable paper, concern
ing the Rev;. Perry G. Watson's case ; and
as it will undoubtedly be of interest to all
who read the former accounts to hear the
result of the whole matter, I would very
respectfully request you to publish this
communication.
The church, after locking the minister
out, preferred charges against him to the
Conference, which assembled at Vienna
about two months ago. Conference ap
pointed a committee of ministers to try Mr.
Watson at Dublin, on the 9th inst. The
committee came here on the 9th, and so did
Mr. Watson. After reviewing the charges,
the church and committee withdrew them.
and Mr. Watson is now, as he nas been lor
the last twenty-five years, a member of
Conference. This action of the Lord's
vineyard at Dublin, with its former ones
In regard to this oppressed minister, needs
no comment.. -- -
Mr. Watson may well thank Mr. John
Wright, who was about the most efficient
friend he had, and who exerted himself In
Mr. Watson's behalf, in season and out of
season. Watson was warmly greeted over
his success. Everything is lovely here in
Dublin, and the goose hangs high.
Very respectfully, yours.

New York: , , . , -.
Dear Sir: When Horatio Seymour was
by acclamation nominated for President of
the United States by the Democratic party,
it was conceded by all parties that he was a
good statesman and sound delender of our
Constitution, but since his nomination I
have noticed many slanderous remarks In
regard to his conduct during the war. Hap
pily, Hon. A. G. Curtin, ex-Governor of
Pennsylvania, has expressed himself in a
most friendly manner, remarking that the
least Baid against Seymour's conduct du
ring the rebellion, the best for the Repub
lican party, as be would acquit him ol such
Wow, as to F.P. Blair, I have observed
in several Ri-publicau papers statements
that he had no claims whatever upon the
Democratic party, and to this I would say
why not? Was it because he fought in the
army and for the restoration of the Union?
He was nominated at Tammany Hall with
shouts of applause, just alter proclaiming
that we ninst have a President untraramel
ed by an unconstitutional, oppressive and
arbitrary Congress. Since the close of the
rebellion I have carefully noticed the ex
pression ot Southern Journals, politicians
and merchants, and find that all are desir
ous of living in harmony, and expect that
the election ot Seymour ana uiair wiu m
the means of encouragement and the ex
tension of the right hand of fellowship,
thereby evidencing a complete vindication
of the object of the war and of the Consti
tution, and restoring the rights of an im
poverished and oppressed portion of our
country. -
Before concluding, I will address myself
to the young and enterprising merchants
and laboring classes. In the various city
papers of recent date, I have noticed a cor
respondence between Judge E. Pierrepent
and A. T. Stewart, the substance of which
was that they both desired the election of
U.S. Grant for tresident, judge x'lerre
pont tendering a check for $20 000 for
furthering his election. Now, to the sen
sible reader and to the young merchant, is
not this in itself perfectly explanatory of
their interests, and is it not opposed to
their development. Do they expect to be
benefitted? Is it not tor purely mercenary
motives? The contest presents a well-
defined issue between the bondholders
and the enterprising and laboring
classes, and resolves Itself Into an oppres.
sion. Greenbacks for one and gold tor the
other. In this correspondence I would not
wish to asserc anything against the pay
mentof the debt, but the interest is exor
bitant it can not be pai.l, excepting in the
same currency as purchased, ana wnen this
is once done capital seeks other invest
menu of a more lucrative character, there
by producing a revenue and gradually ap
proaching a gold basis. In conclusion, per
mit me to tender my check for $40,000, fo be
used in such manner as you may tnmk most ad
visable tor the furtherance of my views. .

A Terrible Outrage in Arkansas.
A correspondent from Carroll county
writes tniif-:
On the 5th instant, at a church-house on
Crooked Creek, four or five Radicals raised
a row on the Sabbath. Knowing that the
Conservatives were all unarmed they fired
into the crowd, killing one man dead upon
the snot and wounded three others.of which
two have since died, one it is supposed will
recover. This was done bv men that claim
to belong to the Carroll militia, and they
are going to enforce civil law. We
suppose that they have commenced the
enforcement. This is the first . Radical
outrage npon the citizens of this coun
ty. We have enough of it. We have lived
in peace for three years, but we are
not willing to have our good men slaugh
tered fey men that have set out to enforce
civil law that will not submit to the law
themselves. We understand that the Sher
iff, together with the good citizens of this
county, demanded that the lawless scamps
be biought to justice and let the law have
its course in the premises. We have not
heard a word lrom them since they com
mitted the act, only what we heard on the
next day. The Radicals all gathered to the
number of titty strong at Captain Fick's
store, we suppose to protect the outlaws
against the civil authorities. The good
citizens of this county are law-abiding,
and will help to enforce it. provided it is
in their power to do so. We had not been
apprised that there was another war
up,- until the Radicals commenced
charging the places of public worship,
seeking whom they might devour. Tbey
killed their own brother-in-law in the
fight. We have been told that there were
two Conservatives armed, and they were
the first two shot down, and did not use
their arm?. The Conservative people of
this county have not been in the habit of
carrying arms for the last three years.
Now we ask the question, what shall wc
do If the Radical authorities, under a Rad
ical form of government, sutler men to ko
to church houses arid commit such outrages
upon people, and fail to bring them to jus
tice for want of law, and men. too, who
will enforce it to the letter? Our county
has been in a prosperous condition for the
last three years. Registration is on hand,
and we are all calculating to register and

Wade Hampton—A Dignified and
Manly Letter.
' The following letter from a Confederate
General to a Union General should be read
by every patriot in the land. It is a frank,
manly expression of opinion by one whose
bravery is unquestioned, whose talents are
admitted, and who accepts .the arbitrament
of the sword. His allusion to the misrep
resentations made by corrupt politicians
brands them with deserved infamy. His
statement of the position of the people of
the South is unquestionably true, xney
"desire, above all things, a firm, j ust peace."
They "recognize the questions of slavery
and secession as settled forever by the
war." It declares "they have no purpose,
open or concealed, to agitate these ques
tions at any future time, and look to con
stitutional agencies and peaceful remedies
alono to free us from legislation which we
believe will destroy the South utterly and
irretrievably:"
COLUMBIA, Oct. 5. 1868.
Major General John A. McClernand, Springfield,
Illinois:
Dear Sir : Your letter inclosing the
pamphlet has just reached me, and I beg
to thank you tor your attention in sending
the latter, as well as your polite invitation
to address the people in your Stite. It
would give me very great pleasure to ac
cept this flattering invitation, but my ser
vices are imperatively demanded here,
where we are struggling against very
heavy odds, though with a fair prospect
of success. If I could leave home, I
would certainly visit the great North
west, In the hope that I might in
some small degree disabuse your people
of the false impression given to them by
Radical misrepresentations ot the purpeses,
the wishes and the desires of the people of
the South. 1 would strive to Impress upon
t.hpm that we desire above all things a firm,
iust peace; that we recognize the question
ot slavery anu svbcaoiuu .cucu wicrci
by the war; that we have no purpose, open
or concealed, to agitate these questions at
any future time, and that we look to con
stitutional agencies and peaceful remedies
alone to tree us from legislation which we
believe to be unconstitutional, and which
m know will destroy the South utterly
and irretrievably. ' ' " x lf.
We appeal, confidently, to the great
Pnnsorvative nartv which is now fighting
for the Constitution, to rescue us from the
ruin that Is Impending, irot only ' over us,"!

peace, justice, and theConstltution. We
ask only the righu held - Bacred bv
every American citizen. We are "well

must come from the DeoDle of the North.
If the South Is crushed by military des
potism, the fate of the North will be seal

Institutions will disappear under the same
blow that destroys us."1 If; Is this convic

at the North would come to the South and

they would acquaint themselves with the

to the absolute necessity for a change of
Government or of the sincerity and good
faith with which our people stand upon

Let me nrge you, then, to send some of

Drunkenness in England and
France.
A London paper makes a comparison be
tween England and France on the subject
of drunkenness. It says that, since the
time of Henri Mevegor and his Bohemians,
the vice of intoxication has made marked
and deplorable strides in France. The pro
digious multiplication of beer shops, and
the systematic adulteration of wine have,
in Paris at least, taught the working class
' the pernicious custom of what, in England;
is termed "boozing." A French sot was
formerly a monstrosity; the manners of the
latter day have made the type of the toper a
common one. Moreover the mania--it is
nothing less than a mania for the stupe
fying add nauseous beveragev called ap
sinthe, has made terrific inroads on the so
briety of the population; and among work
men and soldiers in particular, the craving
falls little short of the proportion ot a pes
tilence. ; ' i
England is notperhaps.the most drunken
country In the world, but very few surpass
it in proneness to the consumption ot the
most besotting stimulants. There is more
intoxication to be seen in the course of one
hour' in London, Dublin, Liverpool or
Glasgow, than two whole days would dis
close in any of the great Atlantic cities.
By their fondness for brandy, the Russian
peasantry, the Danes and the Swedes would
horrify a temperance lecturer; yet it must
be owned that neither in Russia, Denmark
or Sweden are drinking habits productive
of the misery, the vice and the crime which
are their sure attendants in England. The
Germans drink beer from morning till
night, and drink a fair proportion of wine
and ardent spirits into the bargain; never
theless, drunkenness is by no means a
marked feature in the German character.
The English paper from which we quote
these remarks adds this inquiry : "How is
it, why is it, that the English race should
defy all other surrounding races to rival it
in the worship of Bacchus?"
Surrender! No, Never! The Battle
has Just Begun!
When the intrepid Paul Jones was in the
midst ot a bard fought battle, a cannon
ball from the enemy's ship came booming
Into his vessel, and threatened destruction
and disaster f his crew. His adversaries
chuckled with their temporary advantage;
and insolently demanded a surrender.
"Surrender!" exclaimed the gallant sea
man, "No I Never! the battle has lust
begun I ' He continued the fight, pouring
broadside into the enemy's ship until her
entire crew were killed or driven from the
deck, and their ship floated upon theocean
a dismantled wreck. 1 -Democrats,
imitate hla example. Stand
to your guns till the last shot has been
fired. All is not lost. We have been
borne down tor the moment, but the cause,
thank God, isnotlost. The good ship of
Democracy will yet outride the storm ot
Radical corruption and crime, and reach
the port amid the cheerscf millions ot free
men. Courage ! Democrats, courage. In
the fight of Tuesday the enemy obtained
a temporary advantage. But we must re
pair the di.' aster ot the fight by reorganiz
ing our forces for the great arid final bat
tle of November next. Never yield. Tell
your insolent foe that "the battle has just
begun," ana our word tor it, line tne im
mortal Jones, you will carry death and de
struction Into their camp. Again we say,
Courage, Democrats, courage and exertion,

J. Mills Minard Is a colored man, a citi
zen of the Second Congressional District
of Louisiana. He has been nominated for
Congressby the Republicans, to fill the un
expired term of Colonel Mann. He was a
candidate tor the nomination, and the fol
lowing is an extract from his Circular
" The time has fully come to test the pro
fessions and principles ot those wno con
trol the Republican party of Louisiana,
and it is a sacred duty to themselves for
the colored people to see that the col
ored race is not sold out by a few trading,
treacherous white Republicans In Louis
iana, as it has been in Georgia. This State
is entitled to seven Representatives in Con
gress. Are not the colored people entitled
to at least two ot this number? Is it not
our duty to see that. at least two colored
citizens are selected to r-jprcsent In Con
gress the 90,000 colored votersot Louisiana?
The ballot means equal representation, as
well as equal rights, and if men are still
to be debarred from the halls of Congress.
or even the White House, on account of
the color of their laces, then Reconstruc
tion and Republicanism are lamentable
failures. The reward of the long oppressed
race will not be adequate, and the greet
cause of equal rights will not be accom
plished, until the ci'ared man is seen in
everv department of this Government. It
is necessary that the Forty-first Congress
should possess more backbone than the
. present one in order to fix a plain provision
- in the supreme In w if the republic which
shall confer the ballot on every citizen, re.
gardless of race or color. North, South,
East and west."
