Auglaize County. The Contract to Pay the Bonds-
John Sherman's Miraculous Conversion.
ersioa. . - f "t r";
Judge Edftjs P. Kannky, acknowledged
as one of the ablest lawyer in Ohio a
man who never gives an opinion on a law
matter without reflection and examination
in a speech delivered at Ashtabula on
the 19th of September, in speaking of the
payment of the bonds, said :
"There is not the slightest obligation on
earth to pay in coin. There is not a thing
in the law under which they were issued,
nor a tliinz in the form of the contract.
that binds us to pay anything else than the
lawful currency of the country, such as you
have to take for your debts and your labor;
not. a suing." . -. r ' '
In the rame speech, in which Judge
Eannky gives this opinion, he shows up
Senator John Sherman's sudden change of
front on the Greenback issue, in a light
that r fleets no credit upon that celebrated
political summersaulter. He says :
The most remarkable conversion that I
have seen any where is of Brother John
Sherman on this subject. John, like the
war-norse spoken of in the book of Job,
"amell8 the battle from afar." fLauahter.
John, last year, was the most vehement in
all Ohio to stand bv vour contracts and
pay all these live-twenties in gold coin.
He would not hear to anv thintr else. I
will read you a little to show the way he
was last year. It is an extract from the
Cincinnati Gazette ot Julv 1. 1863. comment
Ing on a speeeh of bis in Hamilton county :
"We funded' the currency payable debt
dt into five-twenty bonds. Senator
Sherman the Chairman ot the Finance
Committee, said these were gold bonds, -and
t lat any body who was for paving: them in
greenbacks was a repudiator. In bis cam
paign speech last tall, at Carson's Grove.
in this county, he gave a full financial ex
position, as was fit for our leading legisla
tive financier, and the principal point ot it
was an argument showing that the public
faith was committed to the payment of the
6-20's in gold. After reviewing the laws
under which the bonds and greenbacks
were issued, to show the legal pleJge, he
cited Secretary Chaso's letter of May 18.
1864, affirming the payability of the 6-20's
in goia, ana men with a solemn oath, lie de
dared that he would sacredly keep his
pledges He :safd: "That declaration was
mane oy the Secretary of the Treasury,
with the sanction of both Houses of Cm.
gres. Upon the taith of that, money was
lent by all classes of people to the United
States That policy has prevailed from the
luuuuauou oi toe government to this time.
it has never been Violated, and an JWn u
Ood I I would never aid in its violation,
whatever might be the consequences.' "
' Further oa, the Gfasette ya be closed his
"""m iu una eiegant ana eloquent ian
guage: .
r.Tbe whole proposition is a," Utopian,
ueuiagojncai, mean, dirty, nasty scheme,
which no partv but the Copperhead party
ia the United States could invent." '
1 "That is John Sherman last year. Now,
we will come to John Sherman of March
20, of this year. You recollect, my friend?,
that shortly after this time an election was
held In Ohio and some distant thunder was
beard lanjrhterj, and the masses began to
speak out pretty boldly that they would
not increase this debt one-third beyond
what the lesal terms of the obligation
bound them, to pay, by holding it payable
in coin. They further gave a very signifi
cant intimation-that they : Were slightly
better than the negroes, and " the negroes
could not be invited here' to vote with
them. :: "
John heard it, for he bears anything that
pertains togettlng into office as quick as
any man in America, and when he got back
into Congress he got up the Funding bill
to put you under the heels of a moneyed
aristocracy for a hundred years to come.
Now, read what he says in a letter, dated
Washington, March 20, 1863, to a man at
Brooklyn Heights . ; .;
"UNITED STATES SENATE CHAMBER,
"WASHINGTON, March 20, 1868.
! mDkar Sik? I was' pleased ' to receive
your letter. My personal intersts are the
same as yours: but, like you, I do not in
teod to be influenced -by 5Jiem. 'r 'My con
struction of the law is the result of careful
examination, and I feel quite sure an im
partial court would confirm it.' if the case
could be tried before a court. 'Your idea is
that we propose to repudiate or violate a
promise when we offer to redeem the nrin-
cipat in legal tenders. : I think the band
holder violates his promise when he refuses to
take the same kind-' of "money he void
for the- bond. - If the ' case is to be
tested by the law, I am right. . If
it is to be tested bv Jav Cooke's advertise
ments, I am wrong. I hate repudiation or
anything like it, but we ought not to be
deterred from doing what is right by fear
of undeserved epithets. If, under the law
as it stands, the holders of. five-twenties
can only be paid in gold, then we are re-
pumators if we propose to pay otherwise.
If on the other hand the bondholder can
lbqallt demand only the kind of money
he paid, then he is a repudiator, and an ex
tortioner to demand money more valuable
than he gave. . Truly yours,- . i

f'To Hon.A.Mann,Jr,Brooklyn Heights."
The Apostle Paul, you remember, was
pretty suddenly converted, but it is hardlv
an instance ot such a sudden conversion as
happened to this offlce-holdino- o-entleman
from the 'State Of Ohio, between thn time
just before the last election and juBt after
Between the time of Sherman's letter,
and his speech in Hamilton county, it be
came a necessity oh the partot the Radical
leaders to procure large sums of money to
carry on the campaign for Grant and Cor..
FAX, and the bondholders would not furnish
it, unless they were to have gold for their
bonds. The party that, at the last State
Convention in Ohio, declared for their pay
ment in greenbacks, had to change front'
and with them, John Sherman " 'bouted
face" from the doctrine ot his letter, and
he became an advocate of rags for the peo
ple; for the soldier and the pensioner, and
gold for the bondholder. '
well may Judge kannet call it a "re
markable conversion" when a man, elected
twice to the United States Senate, thus stul
tifies himself.
A Republican Paper Rejoices
Over Democratic Congressional
Gains.
The Cleveland Leader' (intensely Radical)
in referring to the gains the Democrats
have inade in members of Congress in the
recent elections, says:
"We do not regret this gain.' In the
present House of Representatives the Re
publicans have 163 members and the Dem
ocrats 55, The Republicans thus outnum
ber . the Democrats bv. more than three to
one.' This majority is altogether too large
It is dangerous to tbo party.- It makes
party .leaders hasty, careless, imperious,
extreme. While Johnson has been Fresi'
dent, we have needed a two-thirds major
ity in congress to -enaoie us to carry on
the Government in spite ol his obstruc
tions. A- strong opposition party in Con
eress would be a blessing to us. Barring.
therefore, the personal regret which we
feel at seeing good and true men beaten,
we are not sorry to have the Democratic
strength in Congress somewhat increased."
If a Democratic increase in Congression
al membership is a good thing even in Re
publican - eyes if it serves to modify
"hasty, careless, Imperious, extreme" leg
islationundoubtedly, at this time, a clear
Democratic majority in Congress would be
an infinitely . better thing for the country.
The conclusion is . inevitable, . that if a
comparatively small. Republican majority
in .Congress is better, in Republican esti
mation, than an overwhelming majority,
then the lowest point to which the Repub
lican vote for President can be reduced,
the better; for, if the Republicans should
carry the election and carry it, too, by a
very large majority, it would Undoubtedly
make the Republican "party leaders hasty,
careless, imperious,, extreme." 'IV. be
come the duty, then, of every man who
would not have the Republican leaders be
come, ';nasiy, : eareiess,. imperious, .ex
treme," to vote the Democratic Ticket on
the 3d of November. v.----

"Once More Unto the Breach,
"Once More Unto the Breach, Dear Friends, Once More."
The October elections in Ohio, Indiana
and Pennsylvania, in each of which the
enemy claim majorities, in Ohio of fifty
thousand, and in Pennsylvania twice as
many thousand as they received hundreds,
and in Indiana almost as many hundreds
as they received votes of a majority, it in
deed they have a majority at all, have not
Inspired the supporters of Grant to the
extent the leaders wish. Nor have they
dispirited the Democracy to the extent
that will make them less formidable in the
great battle of the 3 J of November.
It the Democracy can get the same vote
in November that it received in October
if the same fearless men will rally at the
polls we speak with a confidence that is
felt by every . Democrat who has calmly
viewed the political situation we can
carry Ohio for the Democratic nominees in
November next. We say this, because we
know ot a class of men deeply insulted and
deeply wronged their religion made the
object of persecution its adherents brand
ed as thieves and robbers, and as unfit to
dwell at their homes, who cannot, in the
very nature of things, and who will hot
support Grant, and who in numbers are
more than sufficient to carry Ohio, Penn
sylvania and Indiana by Sweeping major!
ties. - These men generally vote the ticket
opposed to the : Democracy at the late
election two-thirds of -them remained at
home or else voted the State Ticket of the
Republican party. In November they
will neither absent themselves from the
polls,' nor will they vote for Gran. . "
The stay-at-home voters of the Demoe
racv at the late election were large. Even in
the townships ot 'this county, as can be seen
by the official vote, thoroughly canvassed
a the connty was, the vote was sufficient
to have Increased the majority enough to
elect Thomas to Congress and to defeat
Winans. If this was the case in Franklin
county, it was doubly so in other parts of
the State; These stay-at-home voters will
be put in November, and if so, and if those
who voted the Democratic ticket will but
renew the fight, as it ought to be renewed
we again sav, in the words' of calmness and
of truth! that Ohio can be carried for. the
Democratic nominees. '
If the battle in November is. not fought
with, vigor, it will be an -exception to the
rule," that Democrats never falter- in the
line of duty.' The traditions of the, party
show that they "never yet despaired of the
Republic no defeat so, great as' to, cause
them ever to change their lront none so
great as to make them cease their exertions
for its safety and its honor. And at this late
day, when the battle is tor all that patriots
hold dear, there can be no single thought
of abandoning hope until the last vote is
polled and the last ticket counted, and then
If the battle be against us, the Democracy
w'lll acknowledge "that they are defeated,
but not conquered.. . -.' -.
If the Democracy but do their duty.
there is no danger of ultimate defeat. We
have the" material to change the late partial
defeat to a victory more glorious than if
the skirmish of the 2d Tuesday of October
had been In' our favor. . l.-.t-
Let no' laggards stay at home on election
day.. Have every man of them at the polls.
Perfect the organizations see that . the
law against illegal voting is enforced, and
Ohio will show .herself to be a Democratic
State. Push on the column!

A telegram ' from Buffalo, under date ot
yesterday, says; '
' The Erie connty Democratic Commit
tee have issued an: address condemning
strongly - the surrender ; proposed by a
handful of treacherous politicians in New
York, whose god Is gold, and whose organ
is the World." "
Language could not better express our
opinion "of the Wall street brokers who
lately attempted to force the Democratic
nominees from the ticket, nor of the pro
fessedly Democratic sheet they purchased
as their organ. ; .
Ex-Gov. Seymour never was a favorite
with these men, and no honest man could
be. They were deeply chagriaed at his
nomination, and their attempted coup
d'etat was incited; through hatred to the
man, because he would not lend himself to
their dishonest schemes. Their' pretense of
Democracy is but a shallow device, and
partakes much of the character that Juda3

public-spirited citizen of Springfield and

kindest of feeling and with him hope, to
be able to co-operate heartily . and efficient

Letter from Mt. Gilead.
[Correspondence of the Ohio Statesman.]
MT. GILEAD, Oct. 18.
Messrs. Editors of the Statemak :
Not being in the habit of writing, I never
theless thought I would write a letter this
morning. Our election has passed off and
we are beaten in this county pretty badly ;
but not, in this district. 'We have elected
Geo.. W. Geddis by about eight hundred
majority, as' I suppose you have heard.
The negroes all voted here. My principal
object in writing to you at this time, is to
inform you how matters and things are be
ing worked by the Republicans. They
sent out papers, speeches and pamphlets of
every description. They sent them to Dem
ocrats. They sent out what purported to
be rebel extracts,, and all manner of lies
that could be thought. of. It the Demo
crats would have scattered their papers,
and! worked as hard as the Republicans
dldI believe we would have carried the
State by 10,000 majority.
When our time runs outlet us know and
we will sendyou the money for the States
man, as I believe it has done a great deal
towards redeeming the btate.
Yours truly, .
D. G. P.
Morgan N. Odell, Esq., of Newark, was
elected on the 13th inst., a Representative
in .the Ohio Legislature from Licking
county, by a majority of 1,200 to fill the va
cancy occasioned by the resignation of
Speaker Follett. Mr. Odell Is a young law
yer of ability, an unflinching Democrat,
and will ably discharge the duties devolv
ing on him in his new positioo;-r-zonsie
Signal. .
Mr. Odeix is not only a fine lawyer but
ranks high as a first class speaker, and is
destined, we doubt not, to win a name and
a fame, before the close of his Legislative
careen jut. u'ollett could not have a&a
no moio worthy successor. a','-.

The Florence Sewlne Machine
.: Xne Perfection or Median lam
I - Rarely have we devoted a tew hours to
the: examination: of a wonderful piece of
machinery with more interest than attend
ed a visit to the new - and magnificent
rooms i of the i Florence Sewing Machine
Corapan , 'yesterday morning, at No. 21
East State street. . After a careful and pa
tient examination of the machine in all its
departments we could but come to the un
biased conclusion that it combined sim
plicity, utility,' beauty and durability to a
degree never before reached ' by any ma
chine coming under Our notice. ' We pro
pose now to refer to the superior claims of
the machine-in detail, but it is simply
matter of impossibility to convey tothe
reader an adequate idea of its excellence:
it must be seen doing Its wonderful work.
so noiselessly as not to disturb the slum
bers of an infant, and yet so thoroughly as
to almost create a doubt that an instru
ment of so small compass is -capable ' of
producing such substantial evidences of
ability. -'
The inventors of . the Florence machine
devoted the patient labor of years to the
'grand object of producing a Sewing Ma
chine, perfect in its mechanical structure
. and .altogether free from the many objec
tions observable in those of other manufac
turers. Their first improvement was the
adoption of the Lock stitch (alike on both
-sides) which is regarded as best suited to
all kinds of work. The chain and loop, or
,knit stitches, were entirely discarded. To
improve the' Lock stitch was the next move
of "the Company, and In the addition of the
Knot, Double Lock and Double Knot stitch
, es, the liability to ravel, the want of elas
. ticity, and the want of strength for a class
of seams, such as the bias, or inside seam of
pants,' were entirely overcome, and the
Florence was sent out, a four-stitch Sewing
Machine, perfect in all its parts. It would
seem that with a capacity of making four
separate and distinct stitches, a fearfully
complicated system of machinery would be
required; but such is by no means the fact.
.Probably the moat remarkable feature of
the Florence machine is its simplicity of
structure, and the ease with which all its
parts are comprehended and understood by
all Who approach it. , So much by way of
' general introduction.' ' - v . ,
: The reversible feed motion, enabling the
: operator, by simply turning n thumb screw
to have the work run either to the right or
left, is, attached to each, machine. This
great improvement permits, the operator to
stay any part of a seam,, or, to fasten the
ends of the seams without turning the
fabric. . ,'.,: , .
' Changing the length of stitch, and from
one kind of stitch to another, : can readily
be done while the machine is in motion.
, The needle is more, easily adjusted than
in any other machine. ; ... -r
It hems, fells, . cords,- gathers, braids
quilts and gathers and sews on a : ruffle at
1 the same time.
J enck's patent Bemmers are attached to
every machine, enabling the operator te
turn any width of hem desired. ; '. .
Its simplicity is wonderful.- The motions
being positive, there are no springs to get
out of order, -and the most inexperienced
can operate it with ease.. -: t ' .
Its economy is established, it requiring lesB
thread to do a given amount of work than
any machine yet invented.
Barnum's Self Sewer, which guides the
work Itself, and by the use ot which the
operator avoids strain on the eyes, bent
posture, close, application and fatigueing
care, is furbished with each machine. In
experienced operators will gain incalcu
lable advantage by the use of this Import
ant adjustment.
. Its durability is a strong argument in its
favor. By the adoption of the most desira
ble principles in mechanics,, the. inventors
have placed a machine before the people
which,, while it is unfailing in meeting al1
the demands of the operator, it performs
- its work with the least possible amount of
friction. The "crank movement" is adopt
ed . throughout in; its manufacture, and
such are the peculiarities of its construc
tion that lost motion, the resnlt of wear,
may be taken up in a tew moments and at
a very trifling expense, without the sub
stitution of a single new particle of the
machine. ; !
Change of tension on the Florence machine
is entirely unnecessary. It does not require
finer thread on the under side than it does
for the upper, and will sew across the heav
iest seam, or from one to more thicknesses of
cloth, without change of tension or break
ing of thread. We were shown yesterday
by Mr. 13. McConnell, the General Agent,
a sample of the work of the machine,
which simply speaks for itself. He first
placed under the needle six folds of heavy
casinet ; this was followed by, a delicate
piece of white lace, this by a double thick
ness of dressed calf skin, this by a small
Eqiare of cotton batting, divided, with the
rough surfaceyoown wards, this by a piece '
of tismTpaper, and Anally by the cover of a
cedar tobacco box', one-eighth of an inch in
thickness! The wonderful machine en
countered each sample as it was presented,
made its perfect Lock stitch as well in the
fragile tissue paper as through the wooden
box cover, and all without the least und ue
Interference of the operator, or any change
or adjustment la any part of the machine.
experienced operators present, until then
warm advocates of 'other machines, ex
pressed themselves as convinced thoroughly
of the superiority of the Florejnce over, all
competitors."
The new rooms of the Company at No.
21 East State street, are fitted up in mag
nificent style, and will prove very attrac
tive to the ladies of our city and vicinity.
The display of machines of various beauti
ful patterns and splendid finish is tastefully
arranged, giving patrons an opportunity
to select from the, No. 1 plain, to the ele
gant mahogony or rosewood cabinet. Mr,
W. S. Brown Is the agent for the company
in this' city, who will be pleased to meet
any one desiring to witness the beautiful
working of the champion Florence.

Holloway's Pills. Nausea and want
of appetite are always the indicia of indi
gestion. Stimulants won't banish them
They are superinduced by an unnatural
condition of the stomach and the bowels,
and the best known specific for these causes
is Holloway's ' Pills. No other medicine
operates with the same directness oh these
important organs. This is not a mere ad
