publishers of this paper have very
kindly sent us a copy of their daily daring-
the past year, lor which we are very
much obliged. We bear witness that the
Statesman, as the Central organ of the
Democracy of the State, is well conducted,
and we also hope well sustained. The large
Democratic gain in FrankHn countt at
the octobbh election is thk highest
compliment that could bk paid to the
political ability of its editors. and
of the Statesman's value as a local or
gan alone. Their campaign edition had a
targe circulation In this county, and we
know the Statesman has many regular
subscribers in the county also. ' In patent
medicine language, wk would thbscribk
the Statesman regularly. Jtor all casks

We certainly should be wanting in feel
ing, did we 'not sincerely thank the Tran
tcript for 1U kind notice, lit is a notice wi
ppreciate, because it brings forward the
Important fact, that the Ohio Statesman
by its labors assisted greatly to run up the
large Democratio majority in Franklin
county. We have been at pains to run over
the election returns for the past eight years
to see bow the majority in this county has
Iu 1860, 'at the State election, the Dem
ocratic. mafority In Franklin county was
1.032; at the Presidential the same year, ii
was 530; in 1SG1, it was 686 jib 1S62! It was
L067; in 18G3, It was 307. in 1864. at the
State election, it was 90; at the Presiden
tial election ihe eame year it wag' 600; la
1865, it was L040; in, 1866,. it was 1,838; in
1867, It was 2 655; in 1868, fthisyear) at the!
State election, it was 3.064 and at the Pres
idential election it-was 2,041.
It Will be "thus Seen that the Presiden
tial majority this year, under most dis
couraging circumstances, was, within:' )
slight fraction, four times greater; than
the Presidential majority eight years ago,
and more than double the Presidential ma
jority of four years ago." Four years ago,
the. Democratic majority stood at 900; and
never before that did the county give a ma-
ority in excess of this, excepting at tha
State elections in I860 and in 1862. 7 .
It wiU be seen that the Democratio major
ity was Increased largely at .the State elec
tion last year, and eonsiderably this year.
In these two years, 'the circulation of the
Daily Ohio Statesman in the city ol Co
lumbus was much larger, and is now much
larger, than. It had been during any pre
ceding year. It is, . therefore, not immod
est to claim that the Statesman, -with the
Trf-WeWjf Westbote (the ably and discreet
ly edited German Democratic paper con
tributed to achieve these grand majorities,
Franklin oounty did her share at the Octo
ber election to carry the State, and we take
to ourselves some share of this high honor.
especially as we came so near carrying the
State last: year, when the Weekly Ohio
Statesman had throughout the State not test
than ten times the circulation that it had in the
past State campaign. .
On the day ttiat the editorial manage
ment or the statesman passed into our
hands in February, 1867, we started an
tgent. to traverse the State to extend the
circulation ot the paper. Soon after other
agents were put to work. The result was
that we ran op an immense : circulation
that year, but the expense In "running it
up was to great as to make it pecuniarily
unprofitable. Influences and interests
not necessary to mention, conceived that a
service would be done the party by cir
cumscribing the circulation of the States
man throughout the State, as much as pos
sible, and we did Icel as though it was in
cumbent upon us to incur lurther loss by
sending out agents at large salaries. The
result was that, the circulation of - the
Weekly Statesman throughout the State
was not more than one-tenth this year what
ft was in'1867. . It, nevertheless, had a large
circulation in other States. . i
- We do not complain, nor do we wish -to
be understood as Intimating that the local
press did. not do their duty. . They did
the! jduty; but there are many counties in
the State in which no Democratic papers
are published, and in counties where Dem-
cratic papers are published it is oustoma-
ry to circulate some paper published else
where. Just as that outside paper is con-.
ducted, whether with tact or prudence or
the reverse, will It ba easy or hard for
the local press .to ao efficient service.!
The Statkbman has bad its trial. The
Weekly was, tried extensively' through
out the State in 1867, and as a Daily it
bus been tried in this city," and these trials
have shown that It Is a most efficient agen
cy to promote Democratio success. It is
now under the same editorial management
that it has been for the last two years.
In view of this, we ask the Democrats
throughout the State who desire the politi
tal regeneration of the State, immediately
to -extend the circulation of their local
Democratio papers and put into the hands
of their publishers such available patron
age as will enable them to publish able and
spirited papers, and then get up for the
Statesman as large clubs as. possible, mak
ing it a point to see that doubtful voters are
fully supplied. ' Let this be done at once,
and thoroughly done,' and if we do not at
the election next year cut the Republican
majority down to a satisfactory point, we
will not again importune the Democracy ot
the State to give their local papers and the
STATESMAw'the benefit of an extended cir
culation. : It will not do to put off the work
of increasing the circulation of the local
Democratic press and the Statesman until
after the nominations shall have been made
in July. That will be too1 late. ' To be ef
fective, it ahonld be done now. Now is the
accepted time.' '. '"" - ' - - -

Location of Indians on Reservations
by General Harney.
ST. LOUIS, Dec. 15.
General Harney arrived here last even
ing from the Upper Missouri river, where
he has been superintending the location ot
Indians upon reservations. General Har
ney's headquarters were at Peoria Bottom,
fifteen miles below Ft. Sully. The differ
ent tribes have been settled on separate
reservations as follows :
First, at the north of Whetstone creek.
30 miles above Fort Randall, are establish
ed a portion of the Brutes and Ogallalla,
from Fort LAramie and tne riaice. Among
these are the French bald-breeds, Borde
aux, Carey, Bissonnette and Charley Gar-:
reau. Tbeludians here numoertwo thou
sand five hundred. About one hundred
buildings were erected this season, inclu
ding agency buildings, saw mill and school
house. A cnurcu is aiso Deing erected.
Some two hundred acres of bottom land
have-been broken up, and seed corn, wheat,
peas and beans had been pi-ocured for sow
ing in the spring. This colony Is supplied
with provisions enough to last until the
first of May next. The Indians seemed to
be contented, enjoying their dances and
keeping a drum going all night.
Ane next reservation is caueu me i;ney-
enne reservation, ana is locaieu ten miles
below the mouth of the Big Cheyenne
river.' The tribes settled here are the Two
Kettles, SaeSr ; Arcs, MinecoryouB and a
portions of the lower Yanctons, number
ing in all about two thousand. The num
ber in the sprins-will amount in all, at
this point, to 6,300: Agency buildings,' a
steam saw mill, store house, physician's
residence, besides other buildings, have
been erected, and work cattle and farming
utensils have been purchased. Lieutenant
Sadley was left in command of this settle
ment. ; ";,t ' ' " ' '
The next point established by General
Harney is at Grand river, one hundred
miles below Ft Rice, where portions ol
the 1 upper Yanctons, Uncopoppas, Cut
peads, and Blackfeet iSioux, numbering
forty-five hundred have been assembled.
The balance ot the above tribes are out
hunting bufialo, near the Black Hills, it
being desirable to keep them out on ac
count of the prospect .of a lack of provis-
ions should they all come in, which would
swell the total number at this point to
eleven thousand. Some of the Yanctons,
were permitted to make a--temporary set
tlement on the east side ef the liver, out
side ot the reservation, General Harney
taking the responsibility of allowing them
to stay there for the present. A saw mill
and other buildings have been erected ot
Spotted Tail was at the forks of the

Spotted Tail lost nearly all his horses, thej
being worn out, and the General gave him

point for the BruiesT and It is iri contem

'Although it was late in the season when
