One Fire More.
We. hope our Republican friends throughout
the county, have already commenced making
preparations for the Presidential Election on
.Tuesday the sixth of November.
. Friends, do not let one Republican voter stay
to home that day if it is possible to get him to
the polls. Have your Committee Men appoint
ed in time, and get your Baggies ready to bring
op the aged, the infirm and lazy Toters.
Victory is within your grasp, if yon will but
. make the effort to achieve it. The prise is worth
tenfold the labor it will take to secure k. Up.
then, Republicans, and push on the column.

Official Vote of Ohio.
The Ohio State Journal of the 22d inst, pub
lishes the official returns of the election held in
this State on the 9th inst. The aggregate vote
is very heavy, amounting to 412,704, and ex
ceeding that of last year (355,768) by. 56,936
"rotes a remarkable increase.- The aggregate
vote on Supreme Judge is heavier by seven
thousand than that on any other office, ekarly
showing where the intensity of the struggle lay.
Brinkerhoffs majority is 13,004. Murray's
is 25,278; his absolute majority over the Demo
cratic and Union votes combined, 16,638. Sar
gent's plurality is 24,840; his clear majority
over all opposition, 15,654. " The average Re-
- publican plurality is 21,374; average majority
' over combined opposition,' 15,432.
", The Journal says: At the Presidential elec-
. lion, Ohio can give 40,000 more votes for Lin
cola than any one of the ether three can di dales;
-and an absolute Republican majority of 25,000,
the opposition remaining in its present eon
.dition. But should there be a fusion of all the
anti-Lincoln elements on one electoral ticket,
this majority, we believe, would run up to 50,
000. If our Republican friends throughout the
State will but work, these figures can be real
ised. , We appeal to them to labor for such
glorious result. , - .
i - A Solkkx Ait ata. Last Saturday was the
' day set apart for the presentation to the nnter
rified democracy of Mechanic township, Holmes
o-i of a metal or wooden rooster, about as big
as a man's band, in consideration of her gener
ous vote for that party on the 9th inst. Those
who were present say that the solemnities of
' the occasion can never be effacedfrorc their mem
ories. A half dozen democrats had assembled
at the place designated, to await the advent of
the rooster. ' Their faces were long and their
. vieages solemn. - A stranger to the proceedings
pnssiag that way supposed they were awaiting
the advent of a funeral cortege, bearing to its
last resting place the body of a near and dear
relative. When the chicken hove in sight, those
' aweiting its arrival broke out into audible sobs.
. Each asked -himself, what should they do,
what could they say. "Friends," (aid the
r spokesman from Millersburg, "this is a solemn
occasion. We're licked up. I suppose you've
heard from Ohio, boo-hoo-hoo." "Oh, yes, boo-
h6o-hoo,and Pennsylvania too, boo-hoo-hoo.
' "Is Indiana gone tao,".says a third person?
uOh,yes,boo-hoo-hoo, gone, gone.boo-hoo-hoo."
Then the whole party boo-hoo-hoo'd" all
all around, and were about to disbandjln si la ace.
; when the loud ye-haw-eea of a John Donkey,
browsing in a neighboring field, frightened
, them so that they all took to their heels think-
. ing perhaps that the ghost of Johx Brows had
, appeared in their midst-.,. ..

Laboring Men, Remember,
That Joiraox, the candidate for Vice President
en the ticket with Docglai said in a speech
made in Philadelphia, ba 'there must be
a working and a directing dot, and Oat Capital
dMmld ova Ukor." That is that in the Sortb,
as it m in the South, the rich nabobs, should own
the poor white man, the farmer, the mechanic,
the day laborer, Ac. Has a single democratic
paper rebuked him for this sentiment? Not
one. Come ye hard-fisted, toil-worn tillers of
the soil; come ye shoemakers, carpenters, black
smiths, A r come ye day-laborers, all of ye,
with your wives and little oaes, mount the beock
and be told to lbe capitalist, who will march
yon off in gangs, and re-let yoo again to other
capitalists. 7 Iss't this beaulifol democratic doe-
trine i you t : The democratic parjy of the
present day is the enemy cf! the laboring man.
for the bead of the party is bow, and has been
for years in the South. Do yon sot remember,
how, in 1856, the presses of the Sooth declared
that free society was a failure, and sneered at it
as made up of -jrmtf mtekniei, fitiy opera-
taa, and imeM Jtsttd farmen." Senator Ham
novo, prominent 8oothera democrat, said in
the Senate of the TJ. S-, Hot hireling manual
JoaWwaww auemtullf timet that tkey wen the
watamOt of taddu.' Was there in the Senate a
single democratic Senator to retake this oot-
rageous gentiment? Sot on. Dotolas, Pr&e
and ether ZTonbern Senators said not a word in
reply to it, but Haw, Fesseztdix, Wads, Six
jfoxs, and other Republican Senators, imme
diately rose and burled back the foul slander
into the teeth of him that ottered it. Not a
democrat rebuked this, simply because the dem
ocratic party have become the party of Human
Slavery in this country nothing more, nothing
less. They spurn the doctrines of the Decla
ration of Independence. Calhocx said it was
a rhetorical flourish; Jobs fmn said it was a
self-evident lie; Douglas said that the man who
made it could not have believed in it. But the
Republican party believe in it, and mean to
make it the living faith of this Republic. , They
also believe that human slavery is a crime against
humanity, and a sin against God that wUerev
er and whenever it has existed, has degraded
our common humanity, and cast its chilling
shadow over the toiling men of the world, and
wherever a wrong is perpetrated upon the hum'
blest man that breathes God's air, or walks his
green earth, the whole human race feels his de
gradation. . " -., .
Laboring men, remember that in Toting for
Jonxaoa, yon vol for one who would degrade
yon to a level with his slaves, who would have
yon pat up in gangs as he sends his slaves to
market, and sold to the highest-bidder.' Re
member this when yon go to vote. Ton cannot
rote for Dotglas without voting for Jonxsox
also. On the one hand yon have men that
would degrade you, who believe human slavery
is right, and on the other, you have men that
have fought their way np from poverty Lix
oolx and Hamux ore the poor man's friend,
and opposed to the cursed and withering insti
tution of slavery.'" Think, ponder well upon it,
before you conclude to vote for men who would
not only enslave you, but your offspring also.' 1
Get Ready for November.
Buckeyes, Pennsylvania has promised to give
Old Abe a majority of fifty thousand at the com
ing election. ' Shall Ohio be behind the Old

rotes in his own county this year than he did
two years ago, and still he was beaten six votes
in the county. The increase in the number of
votes in that county, over, .the vote of two
years ago when the vote was a very full one, is
over 800, and come mainly from the canal town
ships, some of which nearly doubled their vote
of lasi fall. Does any man believe that this in
crease was legitimate? It would take stronger
testimony- than any we have yet seen to make
us believe that it was. .
Thxt Doxt Exult. The larger part of the
democrats of this county don't exult over the
election of Nugex. They have doubts as to
whether it is a matter fit for them to rejoice over;
whether if . they did, they would Bt, twelve
months hence, regret it.. One ef them said to
us a few days since, that if Helmicx could have
been re-elected without his vote, he would rath
er that he had been, that he guessed Nugex
wasn't much better than Brnxs. We know
Beta's, have known him many years; as a citi
zen and neighbor, he comes np to the full meas
ure of a man, but if democratic opinions free
ly, expressed before he was nominated are
worth anything , Nrjdzx ain't as good a man as
Burks any way yos can take him. -
Oregon Senators Elected.
- The Legislator! of Oregon has elected I. W.
Jiesmith, Douglas Democrat, for the long lerra
and JS. S. .Baker, Republican, for the short term,
to the United States Senate. Good for Oregon
A Sexsible Wohax. The following .was re
lated to us a few days ago: A German residing
in Napoleon in this county, was waited apoa on
the morning of the election, and asked bow he
was going to rote. He replied that as he was
a Democrat he supposed he would rote the Dem
ocratic ticket. His wife spoke up and said
that if she had a vote, it would be given to the
Republicans, for, said she, when the democrats
had their meeting hern, there were drunken
men laying around in every alley in town, but
when the Republicans had their meeting, there
was not a drunken man seen, : At the wife's so
licitation the husband voted the. Republican
ticket. When this was made known to his
former companions, they waited upon him at his
shop, abusing him and threatening personal vio
lence. The wife hearing the rumpus, picked up
a poker and going into the room soon cleared it
of these patriotic gentlemen.. Commend us to
that woman. ,

REPUBLICAN STATE CENT. COM. ROOMS
COLUMBUS, O., Oct 13, 1860.
The October ekctioas in Pennsylvania,
Ohio and Indiana, are over, and the result
bas become a significant fact in toe political
history of thit Republic. Each; of these
great Central States bas given s most de
cided and emphatic expression in fnvor of
Republican principles. In each of them,
all of the elements of opposition to ns
united to defeat ear ticket, . bat the. free
laboring masses came to our rescue.1 In
Ohio, the straggle was desperate, but oar
triumph was complete. We have elected
our State ticket by nl least twenty thou
sand majority.'. We bare again proclaimed
to the world that we are true to the prin
ciples of our Fathers, and that, standing on
a soil dedicated to freedom, we do not
cease to proclaim our allegiance to the
doctrines of the Jeffersonian Ordinance of
1787, and our reprobation of the traitors
that would; in this hour of trial, desert
the cause of free labor, and its attendant
free institutions. In Pennsylvania, our
victory bas been still more decided and im
portant; With a majority of 155,000
against us in that Slate iu 1856, we ; now
have the election of Mr. Curtin, our can
didate for Governor, by at least 32,000
majority. ' , This fact becomes still more
significant when we know that all the fac
tions of the opposition, Douglas Brecken
ridge and Bell, united upon Mr. Foster his
oponcnt. . We have triuphed over the
combined foe. We have elected twenty
five members of Congress. We have elec
ted a Legislature strongly Rnpulican in
both branches, which secures us the gain
of a United States Senator, in the place of
of Mr. Bigler, In Indiana our . triumph
Las been equally decisive and important.
In 1856, the majority agaiBst us was 47,
000. Now, we have swept it in an open
fair issue between the Republicans, and all
their opponents united upon one Stale tick
et, by at least 10,000 majority. We elec
ted eight of the eleven members of Con
gress. We have elected a Legislature, de
cidedly republican in boln brancnes, wnicn
secures the gain of a United States Sena
tor in the place of Dr. Fitch. This victory
is scarcely without a parallel in our history.
Added to these splendid triumphs we have
the recollection of the recent elections ,in
Maine and Vermont to cheer us on to
certain victory. V In Maine, the most per
sistent efforts were made to break our col
umn,' but to no .- avail. ; . The Republican
Stale ticket was elected by about twenty
thousand majortyi and every one of her six
members of Congress are Republicans. , In
Vermont, the Republican State ticket was
elected by twenty-one thousand majority,
and her members ot. Congress are all Ke
tnblicans. .'' . )- " . ':".','
The Presidential election is substantial
ly decided by these magnificent results.
.bsch of these states will cast their electo
ral vote for Lincoln and Hamlia by many
thousands of increased majorities in Novem
ber, lbe gains of. the States of Pennsyl
vania and Indiana, added to to the States
that cast their votes for Fremont in 1856,
will give Lincoln more than enough votes
to elect; him' President. Wei sball lose
none that were with us in 1856, and we
shall also have with us New Jersey and
Illinois, . which were then against us,
and we shall have Minnesota, which has
since come into the Union.- We have a
rapidly growing Repulican Party in the
border States ol, Delaware, Maryland, Vir
ginia, Kentucky and Missouri; and we shall
have open, as we now have secret friends
in every Southern State, so soon as we can
dispel the illusions of prejudice and . fanat
icism, and estaplisb free speech, and frree
press on the basis of Constitutionl rights.
In this hour of our triumph, both State
and national, while we ' congratulate- our
friends on the prospects for the future, we
desire to remind them that' there are cor
responding obligations resting upon them
which they must not fail to meet. Let us
struggle to maintain her pre-eminence in
the great Republican column of Stales, or
she will be outstripped on the 6th of No
vember, by Pennsylvania and Indiana.
Our enemies ' are. divided, distracted and
embittered against each other. They com
bined against us not for principle, but for
the spoils, and they are badly beaten.
They may attempt another desperate rally.
But tbey must be met and ' conquered.
Our majority for Lincoln in Ohio must be
at least 40,000. It may be more, if we
WORK. Let there be no disbanding of
our forces. Let every county committee
continue the vigilance that has already ac
complished so much. Let meetings be
held in every township and school district.
Let documents be distributed, and facts
be presented to' the people. Let the grand
Republican army of Ohio continue its on
ward march to a still more glorious victory.
And when the 6th of November is past,
and Abraham Livoolh is elected Presi
dent of the- United Slates, let the shouts
of our victorious hosts -mingle with those
which will go np from Pennsylvania and
Indiana, in poolaiming to tfae world that
our cause is triumphant, and our nation re
deemed. By order. 1 . .: ;

There was an Anti-Republican majority
in Indiana in 1856 bf 48,681, and
in Pennsylvania of 163,310. On

vania a Republican majority of 3S,20O,

moDt was in a minority by 11,498. ' Now
there is a Republican majority against De
mocracy and fusion of 13,000, and
a majority against Democracy nnfused of
20,000, a Republican gain of 36,

The Next Congress.
The Cincinnati Gaxtile gives a well pre
pared article upon this - sabject. The Gv
telle tayt'. y, - i-,. ' ti
Until the late elect ons in Pennsylvania,
Ohio and Indiana, we had not only held
our own in regard to Representatives in the
next iongress. but made a slight earn. It
we reckon Mr. Rollins on the Republican
side, (and we have no doubt he will sus--
tain Mr. Lincoln s Administration, if not
aid us in organizing the House,) we have
gained two in Missouri. In Ohio, we lose
two, and in reunsylvaoia one, (if we reck
on the late Mr. Schwartz, like John Hick-
man, as a : Republican otherwise there is
no loss.) In all .the other States which
have yet ejected , Representatives for the
Thirty-seventh Congress, we stand just as
before. Our net loss, therefore, amounts-
to but one, or at most (excluding Mr. Rol
lins) to two. Now, we have a moral cer
tainty of gaining one member in the De
troit District to which Cooper was re
turned, voting against a Kepulican organi
zation and one in Wisconsin, in ' place of
Larrabee. This fully makes up for all our
losses, with as we reckon one to spare.
We see no revson te anticipate losses in
any of the otner stales. We rather nope
to train. ' New York has twenty-five Re
publicans in the present Congress, and we
believe that under the excitement of the
Presidential election, with the Democratic
divisions existing, there is a chance to in
crease the Republican strength, by adding
two or three more in the place of some of
the Democrats now holding seats in the
House. '' New Jersey will at least hold her
own. So w'll Illinois, with a fair prospect
of gaining one or two members, lnen we
may expect the admission of Kansas into
the union, during the next session, with
an additional Republican Representative.
There is also little doubt tbnt Henry Win
ter Davis, of Maryland will be re-elected if
be desires it, that he will support ' the ad
ministration of Mr. Lincoln.
The whole number of Representatives, in
cluding Kansas, will be 238, a majority be
ing 120. We shall undoubtedly have a
full Republican delegation from New Eng
land, 29; probably from New York 28;
New Jersey, 3; elected in Pennsylvania,
21: Ohio, 13; Indiana, 7; probably from
Michigan, Wisconsin, Illinois, Iowa and
Minnesota, 17 J Missouri, 2 ; Maryland prob
ably 1 ; Kansas, 1 total 122. This is close
reckoning, bnt in any event, we are certain
the next House will stand better than the
present, which has not a Republican ma
jority. The Anti-Republican.forces will be
quite as badly divided as ever, and if the
supporters of Mr.- Lincoln s Administra
tion are not in absolute majority, they will
have a decided plurality.
With Kansas admitted, the'Senate will
consist of sixty-eight members.' ' Thirty
five will be required for a majority. . In the
next Congress the Republicans will have
(including two from Kansas and one, Ba
ker, from Oregon,) thirty-one. This will
be a powerful minority, and backed by a
Republican House and Executive, will prob
ably be able to carry through many saluta
ry measures of reform, such as lbe country
needs. Only a few months more will be
needed, we trust, to make the four other
changes to give ns an absolute majority,
One of these we hope" to get in New Jer
sey, (in theplnce of Thompson) anothe;
in Indiana (to succeed Bright) and we do
not despair of the balance in the Pacific
States, or by the admission of JNebrnsfca.
'' On the whole, then, the prospect for the
next Congress, though not all we could
wish, is by no means a gloomy one. Mr.
Lincoln's Administration will have substan
tial legislative support, during the first half
of bis term, with chances in favor of toe
positive majorities in both Houses of the
next succeeding Congress. ' ' . ' , :

NEIGHBORHOOD DISCUSSION IN CAROLINA.
A correspondent of the Petersburg (Va)
Express, writing from Gates, N. C, gives
tne following account of a most brutal and
desperate Bgut: .
. "A man named Jackson accused bis
neighbor Davis of having stolen some
of his hogs; and on last Friday evening,
in walking around bis farm, be discovered
three of Davfs children on his land, where.
upon he carried one of them home with
him.' The two other children returned
home and told their parents what had hap
pened. Infuriated, tbey armed themselves
with guns, axes, and knives, and soon pre
sented themselves at Jackson's house where
a general fight ensued, in which both men,
women, and children participated. iney
shot nntil their amunition gave out, and
then closed in witn axes, knives and gun-
barrels. ,' During' the ' shooting, a son of
Jackson, a mere boy, was killed by (it is
thought) a son of Davis, also a lad.
Seven of the party were dangerously woua
ded one of .the women having received a
broken arm, and, it is said about nfty buck
shot From all accounts they fought as
long as tbey could', and quit with mutual
consent. ' The surviving parties have been
arrested and placed in the county jail to
aatait trial. . . . : , .

The Wide Awakes at Washington.
"Ocdtsbbar. Write Id the Philadelphia
Pre thus: A ' ' ( :
"The last Washington sensation was the
parade of- the Republican Wide Awakes
: - - -v u. j
lO fWJOICV Over UltJ uiuiyu vi. tucir par
ty in. Pennsylvania. - Their numbers took
the towiT by surprise; and their resolute
bearing and compact columns as well as
the respectability of those who participa
ted with them in the procession, wuu tue
knowledge that they were armed to protect
themselves, probably prevented a bloody
tumult. The clerks from the extreme South
who witnessed the array, and followed it
through its march, did pot hesitate fre
quently to avow a desire to attack it, and
more than one loudly asserted that it was
an outrage to allow a Republican parade
upon slave territory; (!) but when they
were quietly inform that the Wide Awakes
not only bad lanterns: in tbeir band., but
revolvers in- their pockets, and wbiM de
termined not' to provoke an attack, were
ready to resist at all hazards and to the
last extremity, no attempt ' was made to
interfere with them, ihe speech of Mr.
Killgore, of Indiana, who spoke for the
Republican National Committee, was bold,
frank and conservative,' and productive' of
the happiest results. " When one of tbe
stipendiaries of the Administration called
out to him from the vast crowd that' he
girl' K.) and his party intended to steal
eir negroes, he replied aptly and at once,
that that was another of the misrepresen
tations under which the Republican party
had been compelled to rest. "We do not
want to steal yonr negroes,'' said be. "I
am from Indiana, which has passed s law
prohibiting Degrees from hereafter enter
ing her limits. 1 am equally opposed to
the introduction of free negroes or slaves.
"Our party is the party of white men."
This retort excited great enthusiasm, ana
many who came to scout went away con
verted. Tbe fact is, the Republicans have
bad many accessions since the result of the
Pennsylvania Gubernatorial election. I
am told that one hundred and seventy-five
joined the club tbe night after the result.
Everybody seems to be preparing for the
advent of Lincoln's Administration. The
tradesmen so far from being despondent,
are rejoiced. . They want to see cew faces.
How he Sold Them.
' A few days since an extra train loaded
with jackasses was transported over- the
Louisville & New Albany Railroad. The
telegraph operator, at Salem,a boy, getting
wind of it set afloat a rumor, tbat a large
delegation of Democrats would pass thro'
at a certain hour, rumor increasing as it
flew, said that many eminent speakers were
on board, and that bands of music accom
panied the expedition. Immense crowds
of enthusiastic ; Douglas men repaired to
the depot.hat in band,readv for theexpected
cheers. - When tbe train thundered in and
an aged and venerable owner of a pair of
fabulous ears stuck his bead out of a slock
car, and gave vent to a long agonizing
hee-yaw that fairly shook the hill around,
consternation seized the crowd, and in two
minutes not a Democrat was to. be seen
within a mile of the depot. Complaint
has been made to tbe Superintendent against
the operator, and he is in momentary ex
pectation of a notice to quit. Lafayette

A man can dine, like a prince,- from a

mity which finally sent Win to' St Helena,
of spending no mora than ten minutes at
