In 1 S."7 Chase was elected Governor
by 1200 majority, and it was ascertained
that he was voted fur by about two thou
sand negroes. Now, the Democrats bate
bad enough to be beaten by whito men
but when they wois voted down by ne
groes they thought it rather muh for hu
man natrre to bear, and accordingly tho
Democratic Legislature elected in 1857
passed a law to prevent muliittoes from
voting. This tho Republicans declared
a great outrage upon the ballot box, for
they hud determined tho wrd white in the
Constitution, when applied to voters, did
not moan white; and accordingly to tost
the matter before the Republican Supremo
Court a saddle colored "pusson" from
Butler county attempted to vote, was ru-iaud
fused, and he took tho ipiestion to the Su- I
picme Court, where it wos decided a few
days ago that white in tho Constitution
was such a comprehensive term ns to in
clude gray , bay Ace. This decision gives
luuluttou a tho light to voto, but it was
nut enough for tho Republican Legisla
ture, for they spent several days in cus
sing and disentitling tho nucuiintUutioiia
law and 'in. illy repealed it.
The Supremo Court of Ohio bus, then,
decided that it requires the pnro white
blood to constitute white children, and al
so that when a person arrives nt voting
a$e that the stttan of tho colored youth is
changed and ho becomes white. This set
tles the long mooted question as to a leop

be enacted. Tho .white ff.ople of Ohio,
will bo sot apart and assigned as the homo

of other States. JWlus the majority of
the pooplo of Ohio have been unfortu
nately led to confide in the Republican
party, and have invested it with power
and authority in this Stato, under the
supposition that they woro opposing "the
extension of slavery into free Territory,"
now find that they have been instrumoif-
tal in placing in the legislative, executive
and judicial departments of the Stato
Government, a body of men, who are bent
0,1 breaking down all tbe barriers that
have existed between the white end black

jRciul functions to produce this equality,
the peoplo ot tne State by a largo majority
would have rejected them. But the true
objoets and designs of the Republicans
were concealed from the voters of the
Stato, nnd when charged with tho design
"of favoring "Xeyro Equality," they in
dignantly denied tha charge. Now the
fact is made apparent. It stands out in
bold relief, and tho white people of the
STa-t4wAll be compelled, to suffer and en
