MARSHALING FOR THE FRAY.
The past week has seen two so call
ed National conventions, each of which
nominated candidates for President
and Vice President of the United
States. These organizations hare no
hopes of success nnless they can in
duc one or the other of the principal
parties to adopt their platform and
their candidate. The Labor Refor
mers present the name of Judge Da
vid Davis, of Illinois, for President,
and Governor Joel Parker of New
Jersey, for Vice President. They are
very good men, we believe, and he
platform upon which they stand is a
very innocent one not aggressive as
is wont in the case of young parties.
The main points of the platform may
be fitly designated as "glittering gen
eralities, lhe I'rombitionifcts' was
Smaller in number, bat more sggres
ive in the matter of platform, and
declares "the traffic in intoxicating
liquors a disgrace to Christian civiliza
tion.' They present the name
James Black.of Pensylvania,for Presi
dent, and John Russell, or Michigan,
for Vice President. We may remark
that the chances in favor of either the
Republican or Democratic mountains
leaving their present foundation and
going over to this labor reform mole-
bill are about the same as the ordinary
chance of being struck by lightning.
The Republicans have a better plat
form and a better man of their own,
and the Democrats, wiH not, es
mass forsake certain time-honored
principles which they stiil fondly be
lieve are connected in some way with
the well being of the country. The
dictation of their leaders who, we
have reason to believe, would em
brace the Labor Reform, or any other
movement that would present the
ghost of a chance of giving them the
reins of Government will not avail
to coerce the Democratic it. asset into
a movement which utterly nores the
"nigger," and has no word f reproach
for "carpet-baggers ana "scalawags.

THE CUSTOM HOUSE FRAUDS.
The following correspondence has
passed between the Attorney General
and the fj. S. Attorney at irew York,
relative to the Custom House frauds
in that city.
WASHINGTON, FEB. 14, 1872
To the Bon. Noah Davis, V. 8. Attorney at Acs?
Sir Referring to the recent inves
tigation into the Custom House af
fairs, by the committee of congress,in
New York, it appears that the certain
persons engsged in the importation of
goods into the United States have
given presents, rewards, or bribes to
officers or persons connected with the
collection of the revenue, and that
such persons or officers have accept
ed the same. You are, therefore, by
3i- i,i lt P.rJrtf lixct rnnt rii
to examine such anaaoy similar cases
tbat may come to your knowledge,
and it it be found that any such pres
ents, rewards, or bribes have been
given or received in violation of the
acts of Congress to prevent smuggling
or to prevent and punish frauds upon
the revenne, to prosecute and punish
the offenders without unnecessary
delay. Very respectfully,
G. H. WILLIAMS,
Mr. Davis has replied, and alter
saying it will give him great pleasure
to proceed with vigor, in closing pres
ents some ot the difficulties he finds
in his way, as follows :
At present no complaints ere made
to ttusomce on wuicu proceedings can
be instituted. We are not at liberty
under the laws to issue warrants for
the arrest ot offenders without accu
rations sustained by some proof of
probable guilt- The importers, who
are the gainers by the evil practices,
will not inform of the guilty officers
whom they have themselves bribed.
In general, the persons to be 6ub
pcenaed to lay the foundation for an
arrest are not known to me, and if
brought iiwo court they are at liberty
to refuse to testify, on the ground that
their evidence will tend to criminate
themselves. I hope you will take
steps to procure an amendment to the
present law to the effect that a party
who pays a present, bribe, or reward
to influence or -fleet official action
shall not, in case the same is received
by a public officer, be guilty of an
offense, but shall be compelled to tea
tity against the guilty officials, thus
leaving the attempt to bribe a crime
against the importer or his agent, but
condoning the crime whenever money
is received or the sake of pnnieiing
the guilty official.
I am, respectfully
U. S. Attorney.
Ocb Government has, just now, two
"little unpleasantnesses" on hand
through the actions of its ministers
abroad. The Spanish Government
has politely informed Secretary Fish
that the course of Minister Sickles, in
interfering in Spanish politics, i such
as to render him distasteful to that
Government. The correspondence
in the case has been wholly friendly,
but, on the part of Spain, very de
cidedly opposed to the return of Gen.
Sickles to Madrid. The other cie is
that of Minister Marsh, who repre
sents our Government in Italy, and
the chief source of dissatisfaction U
that Mr. Mayli wrote a letter to Sec
retary Fish charging the Italian Gov
ernment with vacillation and duplici
ty The oomjJaints, in both cases,
are couched in friendly terms, and
will, no doubt, meet with a like friend
1 response from our Government.
SECRETARY OF STATE.
We notice that the name of Capt.
A T. Wickoff, of Adama county, has
been mentioned ia connection with
the office or Secretary orState. Capt.
V. hat had considerable experience
as Chief Clerk in that office, and an
acquaintance of five years warrants
u in the assertion that he is a strong
Republican and an excellent nd de
serving man. Tuere will be u cause
tor regret siiould Capt. Wik flf i,e the
ajuii'' "one eyed usurper," 'ain-gle-opticled
knave," "servile tool,'
soauieP are among some of the
choice and gentlemanly epithets which
the Courier bestows upon Lieut Gov
Mueller. Tbe Courier must have an
exalted opinion of the mental powers
of its lealtrs when it treats them to
ch convincing arguments.
APPORTIONMENT OF THE STATE.
This matter will soon come before
our Legislature, ad newspaper cor
respondents, as well as prospective
members of Congres?, are busy fx'ng
up afiairs to suit themselves. In the
first place we are utterly opposed to
uj Mgerrymander' by which there
shall be less than five certain Demo
cratic Districts, We should rather
be disposed to make seven. However,
the following from a correspondent
of the Toledo Blade of Feb. 29, gives
an apportionment of the State, which
is as fair for all concerned as any thai
has yet come under our observation.
We give the communication entire as
Editor Blade : Several plans of
apportioning the btate into Con jress
ional districts having fallen under my
observation, none of which entirely
meeting my views, I herewith submit
the annexed as more equitable and
just than an I have seen. 1 claim Icr
this plan the following points ot mer
it: 1. It place3 the districts as nearly
on an equality, as reirards population.
as can be done without dividing the
counties. Iso district falls below 128..
000 in population, and but two reach
bevond 139.000. The remaining eigh
teen range between these figures, and
fourteen of them range between 130,
000 and 136 000.
2. The districts are composed of
contitruous territory, and, so tar as
possible, counties are united, having
an indentity of interests.
3. It is an equitable arrangement,
politically : eivins ten (10) certain
Republican districts, five (5) certain
Democratic, and five which may be
regarded as a fair field lor contest,
with the chances in favor of the Ke-
DISTRICTS AND OOrXTIES.

Mr. Greeley, of the Tribune, as a lea

Ins enangetul character and shown
his unreliability. The mest striking
feature of his late repudiation of

the President are agreed on the main
items of public policy. On the ques

beyond a question for moderate pro

backed up his words with deeds
which Greeley has never done. The
President s Indian policy has been
that of the philanthropist and states

has been at least as conservative as
Greeley. If Greeley had been in the
President's chair he would not have
attempted to do so much to protect

A Cincinnati paper states that
there are indications of a renewal of
the Schenck-Campbell election con
teet cases. A petition bas been pre
sented to the House, signed by a
number of prominent Republicans in,
the Third Ohio District, asking that'
the Schenck-Campbell contested elec
tion case may be reopened. The
petition is based upon evidence re
lating to the Peter Schwab ballot
stuffing case. Two indictments in
this case are recited in the petition,
and evidence taken to sustain them.
It is claimed that the evidence which
accompanies the petition shows
Schenck's election by one hundred
and two majority. The question of
the soldier vote at the Dayton
Asylum does not enter into this esti
mate. If the House grants the pe
tition, the contest will be carried on
in General Schenck's name, although
those in chage of the matter say that
Schenck will resign the seat in case
or success?, and tbe effect will siraplv
be to declare tbe seat vacant and require
a new election. Toledo Blade.
On a of the peculiarities of the ne
groes in the South is their anxiety to
obtain knowledge. While the "poor
whites' have an intense prejudice
against free schools and popular edu
cation, the colored people, both old
and young, 6how a wonderful zeal in
the pursuit of learning. When the
first Missouri colored regiment was
disbanded the officers and men found
ed an educational institution at Jeffer
son Citj, Mo., known as the Lincoln
Inslitute,wbich is open to all, without
regard to color, creed, age or sex.
The members of the regiment contrib
uted 15,000 at once toward the estab
lishment ot the school, and the amount
has since been increased to 925,000.
There are now one hundred and fifty
six pupils in the institution, which is

The Tiffin Tribune the edifors of
which were our predecessors, and who
are much more capable from long
acquaintance, of forming a correct
opinion of Senator Gage than some of
those who have maligned and abued
him, ccpy the following from the
Bucyrus Journal :
'Thefact is that Gasre told Mr.
Sherman that he was going to go for
him. Next he asked Dir. Sherman
for a "posish," Mr. Sherman did not
reciprocate promptly, and so Gage
went for Sherman vengetully, instead
of virtuously. And now Gage's dream
ot distinction is over. He became
distinguished and extinguished simul
taneously.'' The Tribune comments as follows :
Other papers have also made Mr.
Gae a tanret for their personalities:
We should have liked it much better
had ho taken a different course, but
are satisfied that he acted from con
viclion. Having know Mr. Gage for
over eight years we are prepared to
say that he is an honorable, upright
man in his dealings as a businessman,
cenllemanlv and accommodating in
matters between himself and neighbors
and a first-class man in every respect,
He has never solicited for hinnelt any
Government office, not only because
he is not an office seeker but his cir
cumstances do not make it worth his
while. Further than thin, Mr. Gage
is a man of good sound senso.excellent
ability, and will raako a useiui aana
ator. We say this knowing that the gen
tleman in question laid himself open
to just criticism, but he is entirely too
good a man to be sianaerea anu
abused as some papers are doing.
T11 a Cincinnati VotkMatt (Fred
H&ssaurek'a paper) speaks this wise
of the late National Convention of
Labor Reformers : "To judge from
the number of votes which this party
bas hitherto returned, nearly the
whole party must have been present

was composed of nearly two hundred
delegate. The platform ot the Con
vention is a queer olla polrida of
protective taritf and repudiation, ol
Government paper mcney, taxt ion
of exempt bonds and other beautio?,
If the Convention wis uaible to
bring forth anything better thin that
it might hive siva l i.s labir and
have simply de-ignat-d a few vol

Eos. Jeff.: Your readers will
remember the assau't of Myers on the
persoi of Michael Uelsel, in this vil
iage, about the middle ot last Novem
ber. Mr. Uelsel had partially recov
ered from his injuries, and was able to
be around. We had frequently
conversed with him, and hoped he
was out ot danger. But he took 1
bad cold, which, with his wounds re
suited in his death last Wednesday
evening. If is funeral took place yes

would-be murderer, has not been

The sermon was of the most interest

right.quiet citizen, and the large con

Eds. Jeff- In your iesue of the

I desire to notice. The writer says
some j relty hard things about the
farms tdong the Lima roa 1. I wculd
enquire of "Observer" why he singles
out the farms along thii road tor bis
aniuiaJverguibS, as though there were
none fto tuiy other that lacked any
thing. . Is he envious of the thiift and
progressive spirit the farmers alonj
this road evince ? Does he mean to
injure them by the course he Las
taken in dragin their fault iote

Dedication of the New Eden M. E
ARCADIA, O., Feb 26, 1872.
Ed i. Jkpf. Oa Sundiy morning
last. February 3;h, tie fine brick
church, erected duricg the past Fall
at '-Vicker's Corners," in C-sa towu
rhip, wai dedicated to the set vice ol
tbe Almighty, Great praise is due
to tie originators and workers in t'je
cause for the very fine building
which they hve erec;ed. At 11, A.
M., the aervicet were opened by the
si giug of the fl70-h hymn, after
which lhe Itav. L. C Webster offered
a very effective prayer- After the
singiug o' the 223 I hymn, Kv. L C.
Webster, 1 E., delivered th? dedi
catory sermon from the 51st verse ot
tlin 7th cUapter of St. Mathew, viz :
"And behold the vail of the temple
was rent in twain from the top to the
bottom, and the earth did quake, and
the rocks rent."
At the close of tbe sermon a sul
acription was taken up to liquidate
the. arrearages of the church, which
was heartily respjtided to, and over
$1,000 was raised in a ehort time
autllcieut to pay all tha indebtedness
of the church. We have seldom wit
nessed such an exhibition of liber
ality and generosity as was displayed
by tbe people upon this occasion.
The Building Committee aud the
Trustees advanced to the altar. Rev.
L. C. Webster then read an exborta
tion as to their duties, alter which he
form illy declared the building dedi
cated to the service of God. This
was followed by prayer.
Ministers present who assisted in
tbe exercises were llevs Bower,
Goode and Webster.
Tae services closed with tbe dix-
-Praisa Uud fru:u wUotu all blesslns flow,
sung by the congregation.
Tue building is very neatly aud
tastefully finished inside with ash,
trimmed with black walnut. A neat
and appropriate spire aids much to
the appearance of the church.

Wood's Household Magazine for
March has taken a "New Departure,'
ith Gail Hamilton as its editor-in-
chief. Iu her salutatory she unblush
ingly avows that, 'The original aud
iverning motive of this Magazine is

'a fact unparalleled in the history of
literature, and we might disguise it
in finer phrase, but the underlying
motive would still be the same. Pro
foundly as we believe in virtue, mor
ality, and the power of the press, we
would never publish a periodical il
we did not hope to advance our for
tune thereby.'' Yet just how for
tunes are to be advanced by the pub

nearly sixty pages, contributed by
such writers as Greeley, Parton, Bun

xpense ot nearly six thousand dollars

opposing investigations, and for i-n-pug-ing

with the removal of Mr. Sumner from

Feb. 20 -In the Senate Mr. Conk

taken on these recommendation ; al
so whether any appointment or re
movals have been asked in any other

if so, in what way. Mr. Trumbull
said it was a mean and sneaking piece
of business, but he was ready for an
investigation. lie characterized cer
tain Senitors as sneaks prowling
around the departments seeking such
in'ormation aa this, pretty plainly in
dicethg Mr. Morton. Tbe latter
rep'.ie I to tbe insinuation, saying he
La i uot been to any department, save
on one occasion, since this sessioi of
Congress began. He charged Mr.
Trumbull with recommending lela

was taken up. Mr. Nre eioke in

The debate on the French arms
resolution was resumed. Mr. Wrigbt,
of Iowa, said ha would vote against
the resolution b a cans a it was clearly
shown there was no ground tor the
investigation. Mr. West, of Louisin,
took the same ground. After dis
cussing the general order system in
New York City, Mr. Schmz again got
the floor, and siid he never had
thought of going oyer to the Demo
crats, and did not now. But he
thought he would have a chance of

vatiog for a Democrat. Mr. Sumner

In tha House the Committee of

iag the time for the construction of
the Green Bay and Sturgeon Bay and

setting apart the Yellowstone Valley
as a national park, were passed. Af
ter finishing half the deficiency bill
and striking out the clause repealing
the law for the p lblication of the
s'atutes in the newspapers as not ia
order, the House adjourned.
The New York Tribune, designing
to thrust tbe republican party
which Dr. Greeley now bates ia a
sore place, says that ''Miswun is not
likely to elect collectors of Internal
Revenue and Postmasters to the Ixa
tional Republican Convention." Dr.
Greeley owjld to know that tbe call
of tbe National Republican Execu
live Committee, which he re'ussd to
sigh, exptewly requested tbat all
public officials should decline to be
delegates in that Convention. We
are pretty sure that Ohio will accede
to the requeet We do not know ot
a federal officer who is willing to
jeopardize Republican interests by
seeking a place on the delegation.
The Misttourt convection complied
with the request of the National
Committee, and everv other State
Convention ought tod) likewise.
There is a world ot sense in the
above suggestion. The people will
nominate Gen. Grant and they ought
to be permitted to do so, and every
Federal officer who foists himself on
to that Convention, weakens cause
dear to every true Republican.
