DUTY OF THE HOUR.
The Republican banner has again
been thrown to the breeze, and on it
are emblazonedjthe names of two ol the
tried and true Statesmen of the party.
In Gen. Grant, the Republicans have
a man whoonot only deserves their
support, but who appeals strongly to
their love of justice to vindicate his
fair fame from the foul aspersions of
the enemiea of the party, and of the
country. . This we owe to him, and
we shall not fulfill our obligations as
citizens, if we fail to use every hon
orable means to secureLis. election.

tory, and who has 6uccesslully ad
ministered the affairs of Govern

watred for the life of the nation.
Failing to find sufficient in his politi
cal acts to justify their opposition,
they have dragged his private acts,
and life before the public, and in lan
gnage that would shame a fish woman
' they have heralded his most trivia
faults to the country. Even his old
father, now in his second childhood,
has been dragged into publicity,
and his peculiarities, the legacy of a
past generation-have been made to do
duty against the man to whom, above
all others, the American people are
in honor bound to be just. The issue
made np by the traducers of Gen.
Grant is one which the Republican
party gladly accepts. Their carping
criticism of his military career go
for naught in the face of his success
es, and the fsct that he was the lead
er in almost every battle that
brought discomfiture to the rebels
and peace to ihe country. His hon
csty and ability as the. Chief Execu
tive of the nation, has cot been i
whit less clearly marked than as com
mandcr of the nation's armies on the
field of battle, and as a consequence the
country is now enjoying a degree ot
prosperity unprecedented. He has
been foremost in the advocacy ol
of those principles upon which the Re
publican party was founded, and upon
which it has gained its every victory.
He has steadily reduced the public
debt, and in his messages persistent
ly advocated those reforms which the
popular will demanded. Indeed it
would be difficult for those who tra
duce him to point to a single act of
his term, that does not prove him
pure patriot, and a wise ruler. As
he himself announced, he has had "no
policy against the will of the peo-
- iilc. "YvUuaevei and - wnc icvei tfi

ask, npon him, the just judgment of
his countrymen. From those who
had neither part nor lot, in the success
ot the grand principle for which he
drew the sword, we expect nothing
From those only who npheld him,
and the gallant men under his com
mand, in the nation's battles do we
expect his vindication now. And we
shall not be disappointed in oar ex
pectations. Of Henry Wilson, of Massachu
setts, it will not be necessary to say
much to the Repullicans of this
country. We publish elsewhere in
this paper his biography. Coming
from the shoemakers bench to his
presentposition, he is pre-eminently a
man ot the people and ia identified
with every interest of the laboring
portion ot the people. The nation
has no purer or more able statesmen
and the Republican cause no better
advocate. The ticket will be tri
umphantly elected in November, de
spite the opposition of enemies with
out the camp and traitors within.

Excursion to the Hocking Valley
Important of this Road to the People
of Hancock County.
United and Persevering Effort on the
Part of Our People Will Secure It.
Of Greater Importance to Hancock
County than any Road Yet, or
Likely to be Projected.
Last Thursday morning, in response
to an invitation extended by Vice
President Green, and other officers
connected with the Columbus & Hock
ing Valley RR., a delegation of over
forty of our citizens, who are interest
ed in the extension of this Road to
Toledo, via, Findlay, started on the
5:40 A. M. train lor Columbus to visit
the Hocking Valley Coal Wines. At
Clyde the delegation was joined by
several gentlemen from Toledo, bent
on the same errand. By common con
sent the party stopped at the Neil
House, where they found quiteanum
ber of delegates already arrived, and
by night delegations on both western
and middle routes were in attendance
The middle line, south of Findlay was
represented as follows: S. J. Siddall,
Houcktown; M. S. ilamlin, Isaiah
Bell, Henry Greer, M. D. Hammond,
Mt. Blanchard ; Hon. H. F. Gage,
o. . oiuwKton, f orest ; r. Kemp,
BL V. Toney, Marseilles ; J. F. Marsh,
J. J. Hopkins, M. L. Evans, La Rue
Dr. F. E. Power, E. S. Adams, G.
Gast, C. Lehner, I.Rcithmer, Middle-
town and Delhi ; Judge Powell, H.
J. McCalloagb, G. H. Thompson, C.
O. Little, of Delaware. The western
line, south of Findlay, was represent
ed by delegations from Arlington,
Dunkirk, Kenton, Marysville, Dublin,
and other points. Van Buren and
Bowling Green, on the north,were rep
resented by active delegations, but we
were unable to obtain the names of
the parties. Gen. J. S. Robinson head
ed the Kenton delegation, and was
active and untiring in presenting the
the advantages of the western line.
After lunch carriages weie ordered
by the C. & H. V. RR. Co., and some
of the lately developed manufactories
were visited. The first visit was made
to the Columbus Gas and Water Pipe
Co., where we found an old co- labor
er on the O. S.-Journal, Chas, A. Po
land, Esq., in charge. This establish
ment makes about lfiOO feet of pipe
per day, of all sizes, and gives em
ployment to over 80 hands. A hasty
visit was then made to the turn ace ot
the Columbus Iron Co., just as a"run"
was about to take place, an operation
which was watched with interest, es
pecially by those of our party who
had never witnessed the process oi
making "pigs." The Columbus Roll
ing Mill was next visited. This build
ing is just finished, coyering nearly
two acres oi ground, and the huge
engine, hammers, etc.. were beinr
placed in position. These manufac
tares, as well as some others we might
mention, are the dii ect result of the
building of the Hocking Valley RR.
The tapping of the mineral resources
of Southern Ohio has given an aston
ishing impetus to the busines interests
of the Capital City. Every branch of
business in Columbus has improved in
the last four years, if we except the
culinary department t the Kiel House.
If our friend Failing does not recon
struct his "colored, bread-and butte
we shall "take our rations at the mar
ket-house and sleep on the bridge''
in our future visits to the Capital.
" A visit was next paid to the Water
Works (which are built on the Holly
system) where the party ppent some
time in the examination of the pow'
erful and beautiful machinery. Iu the
evening a portion of the party visited
the- office of the Works, where another
"typo," the Clerk, Mr. J. R. Arm
strong, formerly Business Manager of
the O. S. Journal, politely received
them. An exhibition of the efficiency
of the Works was made in the eve
ningby throwing six strearrs over
the State House. N
In the evening a meeting was held at
the office ot the Secretary of State,
which was organized by calling Hon.
Wm. Mungen, to the chair, and se
lecting Mr. Bronson, of Hardin Sec
retary. Speeches were made by dif
ferent delegates along both eastern
and middle lines. Mr. Green, Vice
President ot the Road, was called out,
and stated that both eastern and wes
tern routes were under survey, and
that no decision would be made until
careful examination had been made of
the merits ot both routes. While the
eastern route was some what. the shor
ter of the two, there might be advan
tages in the other route, such as low
er grades, more local business, greater
local aid, that would overbalance the
difference in distance. As to the
middle route, which had, its represen
tatives from Houcktown, Mt. Blan
chard. Forest, Marseilles, LaRue,
Middletown, Delhi and Delaware, no
survey had yet been ordered, but
he wished to give them a chance to
make a showing. Railroading was a
matter of dollars and cents, and the
route presenting the great advantages
would be chosen. The meeting then
adjourned to meet at the de;ot at 8
o'clock, Trida y morning, to visit vtie
coal mines, in accordance with Mr.
Green's invitation. Friday morning,
at 6 o'clock, the party left Columbus
for a trip down the valley. A fine
rain during the preceding night had
cooled the air and laid the dust
With nearly 200 aboard, all in good
spirits, and moving at good round
speed over a well ballasted rood,
through a fine country, "all went mer

Passing Groveport, Winchester, and
other places, we soon came in sight of
the fine old city of Lancaster, nestled
among the hills ot the Hockhocking.
High above the town looms up Mt.
Pleasant, celebrated as the scene of
one Emerson Bennet's works of fic
tion, and to which every good citizen
of Fairfield turns three times a day, as
did the ancient lareaiit.es toward the
city of Jerusalem. Fully one half our

ing an old friend and newspaper man,
Mr. L. M. Bort,founder of the Hocking
Sentinel, which he established over
thirty years ago. We hope he has
found a less laborious occupation than
journalism, and as he used to tell us,
'leaves no starving babes" when he
goes away Irom home. Here a short
stop was made, but owing to some
derangement in the mine, it was not
visited. The mine is owned by Mr.
Peter Hayden, and the vein is C ieet
4 inches in thickness.
rive miles further on we came to
Nelsonville, where the party visited
the mine of Mr. W. B. Brooks. This
vein is about the same thickness as at
Haydenville, viz : G teet 4 inches. Af
ter an hour ppent at the Brooks mine,
the party returned to Logan, and took
the StraiU-ville branch lor that place.
Here a Luge portion of the delegation
vitited the Straitsvilla Great Vein, in
which Messrs. Wra. Anderson, J. II

guidance, explored the mine pretty
thoroughly. It is an eleven foot vein,
and is in excellent condition lor mi

an excellent track to the RR., which
enables them to car their coal with
git an luuimy:
After thus, the party returned to
the cars, and partook of an excellent
lunch, provided by theRR. Company,
after which the return trip was com
menced. At Lancaster we left the
train, for a visit to the Southern por
tion of the State.
From t'm Columbus Journal we
make the following extract of the pro
ceedings of the delegation on their
arrival at Columbus :

we passed down the C. fc H. V, RR.

LETTER FROM MT. BLANCHARD.
MT. BLANCHARD, O., JUNE 10, 1872.
Eds. Jeff.: During the past week
the principal topics of discussion
among our people has been railroad
matters Messrs. M. S ITamlin,
Isaiah Bell, CapL H. Greer, and M. D,
Hammond represented the interests of
Columbus last Thursday. Two of
the above gentlemen Greer and
Hammond visited Marsailes, LaRue,
Middlcton, and other points on the
"center route." They found tho peo
ple ot tho aforesaid places in good
spirits, and willing go to theis "bottom
dollar' for the " center route ' of the
proposed Columbus fc Toledo li. It.
Believing your paper to be the proper
advocate of ours, as well as the other
routes, we wish to say why we think
ours superior to the other proposed
routes: Toledo will, virtually, have the
trade of Kenton and Dunkirk should
this road take the " center route," as
the above places would have imme
diate connection with the road at
Forest. Should the road take some
other route, Toledo will not get the
trade South, between Forest and
Delaware. The ' center route ' pass
es through more towns, that have no
outlet, than cither of the other pro
posed routes. We think that if two
places give $50,000 apiece, it is as
good as one place giving 8100.000,

until the whole line joined in the
chorus, "Glory, glory, hallelujab !'
As the magnificent strains rolled
out upon tbe still nignt air they were
answered from the rebel line with
volley of shells, which screamed
over the heads of the patriots or ex
ploded harmlessly above them. But
tho Union troops, regardless of the
response, sang their hymn to the end
and when the moring had dawned
the enemy had fled. So, in the prcs

Another noticeable feature was the
presence of and reception accorded to
the delegates. The colored speakers
were received with even more respect
and attention than was vouchsafed
to most of tHe white orators. And
they acquitted themselves exceedingly
well. Their fluency of speech, their

of their delivery, aroused the utmost
enthusiasm, and it was a common re

The candidate of the Republican
party lor the vice-presidency was
born in rarmington, J. u., eo. 10,
1812 His parents were extremely
poor, and tneir poverty iorced inem
to bind out their son to a farmer,
as an apprentice, when he was but ten
years old. This apprenticeship con
tinued for eleven years. But in these
eleven years, by tbe untiring industry
and indefatigable perseverance, he
managed to read and study more
than a thousand volumes ot history,
biography, and travel. .
When he was 21 years of age, he
left New Hampshire and entered a
shoe shop at Natick, Mass. At his
new trade he labored for three years,
and having by that time earned a suf
ficient sumot money to enable him
to obtain a collegiate education, he
returned to XSew Hampshire, and in
1S3C entered btanord Academy to
complete his preparatory studies. A
visit to Washington about this time
seemed to open his eyes to the atroci
ties and aggressions of lavery, and
from tbat time forward he was an
ardent an unflinching opponent of the
"peculiar institution." At tho close
of his first term in Stafford Academy,
he maintained at a public exhibition
the affirmative ot the question, "Ought
slavery to be abolished in tbe District
of Columbia ? ' Early the next year
the young men of New Hampshire
held an antlslavery convention, and
he, as a delegate, took a prominent
part in the deliberations.

Senate. He took an active part in
favor of the admission of colored
children into the public schools, the
protection ot colored seamen in south
Carolina, and in opposition to the an

ot 1845. he got np a convention in

mean, 6ir, to place in the councils of
the nation men who, in the words of
Jefferson, ' have sworn on the altar ot
God eternal hostility to all kind of
oppression over tbe mind and body
of man.' ' During the four years that
followed, his attitude was one of un
compromising defiance to the de
mands of the slave power and the
threats ot the South. In March,
1871, ho was appointed to tto Qmir
manship ot the Committee on Military
Affairs. It was a fortunate selection.
Mr. Wilson always believed that
when the conflict bytween the North
and the South came it would be one
of gigantic proportions. He was, ac
cordingly, one of tho few who advised
tbat tbe hrst call kr troops should be
tor three hundred t housand instead of
seventy-five. . .
The following presents a brief view
of his services during the last ten
At the closo Of the called session of
Congress in ISCI, Liiut, Gen. Scott
emphatically declared, "That Sena
tor Wilson had done more work in
tbat short session iLan all the cliair
men of the Military Committee had
done tor tbe last twenty years.
After tho hrst Bull liun battle, he
returned to Massachuseets. and by his
personal labors raised 2,300 men.
Among tho numerous bills intro
duced by Henry Wilson was one to
raise oOO.OOO men lor three years to
eniorce tne laws.
One to increase the pay of private
One to facilitate the discharge of
One to improve the organization of
tne cavalry forces.
Une (a second bill I to increase tbe
pay ot soldiers, this bill caused an
increase of o per month.
une to incorporate a national mili
tary and naval asylum for disabled
officers and soldiers
One to accept, organize, and arm
colored men for military purposes,
and to make free the mo there, wives,
and children of all the colored sol
diers. One providing that all the colored

He introduced the bill which abol
ished slavery in the District of Col
umbia, aud which becamo a law April
10,1802, thereby making 3.000 slaves
free forever, and slavery forever im
possible in the national capital.
I he but to make colored persons a
part of the Militia, and to authorize
tbe President to receive them into the
military nd naval service, aud tO
make tree the mothers, wives, and
children of all such persons, was in
troduced by Henry Wilson, and
passed July 17, 1802.
He advocated the emancipation ot
the slaves ot the South as far back as
1835. - .
lie introduced a provision, whirh
became a law on the 21st of May,
1862, providing that persons ot color
in the District ot Columbia should be
subject to the same laws to which
white persons were subject ; thatthev
should be tried . lor offenses .acainst
the laws in the same manner in which
white persons are tried, and, if con
victed, to be liable to the same pen
alty, and. no otner, to . wmcn white
persons would be liable for the same
offense. This act nullified the brn-
jg, degrading, and inhuman!
black code of the district. .. . ,
He introduced innumerable bills
securing to the soldiers their bounties,
pensions, back pay, and all other
rights which they had so dearly
earned. :.. . ,
In addition to his vast labors in
Congress, he traveled tbrough the
States and delivered more than loo
speeches iu support ot the war, and in
vindication of the anti-slavery policy
of the government. . ,
During tbe beginning ot tbe war he
spent hi time and money in franking,
writing letters, and giving money to
assist the wives and families of sol-
iers who called upon him at Wash
For thirty two years he has toildd
public lite for the right, the culture
and elevation of all men, without dis
tinction of race or color.
Mr. Wilson was a prominent can-
didate before th Ciiicig'i Convention
of 1808 lor the Vice-Presidency, bdl
wa9 beaten by Mr. Colfax. Ho gains
now what he lost then.
Mr. Wilson, from yor.th, has been
strictly temperate and of irreproacha
ble moral character. Within a few
years he hss lived an active Christian
file, makink a public profession of re
igion, and uniting with th Congregi
tional Church ot Natick. He has also
manifested an earnest interest in the
fnbject of temperance, organizing a
Congressional Temneranee Society.
