Shall Our Elections be Pure?
Several Acts of the Legislature Relating
For iLc firt lime iu tuc iiistury ci
Hancock cour,tr,we believe,lhe pari
ty of elections are in danger. In
fact, we have p.oof abundant and
convirii2 r.rccf that men LaVe
bofii brought frcru t'er counties,
oateiiSiLIy for Ihe purpoi-e of working
u-toi the railroad, but really for the
purpose of carrying the cjuaty and
overriding the will or oar people.
Will the voters of this coanty allow
this subversion of their rights ? Will
they tllow tbe practice? that prevail
in iue purlieus and siums or our
largo cities to be ir.trc ductd in our
county ? We simesl i-i them not
as Kepubiic&t.s, cot t.s Democrat
but as good citizens, who place Law,
Order, lligl.t far above parlizin tri
utcph, to arise ia their nrght and re
buke thofe who would attempt such
infamous conduct. A pure ballot-
box is the sa?e-guard tl our Repub
lic, tnd Hancock county one week
from nxt Tuesday will Lave an op
portunity to show that they love
Right more than Party by allowing
not oue iliegal vote to contaminate
For the inlorma'iioa of voters we
propose to rot ice some provisions of
onr i r.iciit election law.
JUDGES OF ELECTIONS.
We notice that there is in many
places a great misconstruction of tbe
Act of April 12, 1870, which givej
minority representation in election
board?. Section G, or euch a part
of tne Eection as is applicable to all
cafes in cur county, reads as fol
Section G. Tiiat the Judges of
election, for every election precinct,
at sll elections hoiden under this act,
or the acU amendatory thereof, or
supplementary thereto, shall be cho
sen and constituted as follows, to
First In every township, and for
the township election precinct there
in, said Judges shall consist of the
two electors, receiving, hereafter, at
any general April election, the high
est number of rotes for thecfSce of
trustee of su.-h township, and the
elector receiving thereat the highest
number of votes for said olfice, of
those not elected thereto : provided,
if, of those elected township trustees,
at any election, two have an equal,
but not the highest, or, if the three
Lave the same, or, an equal number
of votes, for said i flice, tben, in every
such event, the township clerk shall,
without delay, publicly determine, by
lot, which cf said two, or
which two of said three to elec
ted, or which one of those not
elected.but receiving votes as afore
said (ss the case or cases may re
quire), eha.Il ba judge pr judges ol
election. It any township comprise
more &uch precincts than one, tbe
trustee thereof not chosen as afore
6aid, ehall be one of the judges of
election for one such precinct, where
of the ether two.as well as the judges
of election for any additional town
ship precinct, situate wholly or part
ly ia such township, 6 hall be chosen in
the manner provided in section seven
of this act The clerk of every town
ship shall make and preserve a rec
ord of the names of all persons, with
proper dates, chosen judges of elec
tion as aforesaid ia such townships.
Should any cr all of the ju-lges oi
election "fail to be present Section 7,
of the same act provides as follows :
Section 7. That if either of the
judges ot election, or clerk of any
townsLip, shall fail to attend at the
time and place of holding elections,
or if either o them shall be a candi
date for etate or coanty office, then
it shall be the duty of electors pres
ent to choose, viva voce, suitable
persons, (as the ca laay require),
having lb qualiGcations of electors,
to act as judges or cleaks, (as the
case. may be), of election; and pre
vious to tny votes being received,
such judge or clerk, or anj judge or
clerk not beiog already duly sworn,
and qualified according to law, shall
take an oath or affirmation, which
may be administered by any trustee
or cleik of a township, or councilman,
or other person authorized to admin
ister oaths, in the .following form:
"You, A. B., do solemnly swear (or
affirm) that you will perform the da-
tics ot judge or clerk of election, '(es
the case may be), according to law
and the best ot your ability; and
that you will studiously endeavor to
prevent fraud, deceit or abuse in con
ducting the same."
We have always believed tha1; in
making the above law our legislators
intondel to give representation to
fcoth poli'iua! parlhs ; but it will ba
seen that there are cases in which it
dees net do so. For instance, in
Findlay township.in 1871, our Demo
cratic frienda succ;eJed in electing
Mr. E. Birnd, Dm., over Mr. Sto
ker, Rep., and yet under the clau3e
in tbe above section making a judge
of "the elector receiving the Lighes1
number of votes for said office o'
those nt elictel thereto. Sir. Stoker
was compelled t act as Judge of tbe
election. Agcio, at the April election,
our Democratic friends supported
a fusion ticket, placing thereon Mr.
K. S Baker, Kep., who received the
highest number of votes, and by vir
tue of the same clause Mr. Baker be
comes the judge with Mr. Biggs and
Mr. Engleman the Republicans
We merely give the above facts to
show tbat the law does not give rep
resentation to both parties in u
caecs. We are sorry that it does
not do so. The office is a very re
sponsible and important one, and
none but men of the most undoubt
ed integrity should be chosen for tbe
WHO ARE VOTETS.
An Act passed March 12, 1853, en
titled An Act to preserve the pur
ity of elections"' provides that after
putting the challenged party under
otth he thall answer the following
Sicond.U the person be challenged as
unqualified on the ground that he has
not resided in this State for one year
immediately preceding the election
the Judges, or one of them, shall
put the following questions : 1. Have
yon resided in this state for one year
immediately preceding this electien ?
2. Ilave yon been absent from this
State within tbe year immediately
preceding this election ? If yes, then,
3. When you left, did yon leave for
temporary purpose, with the design
of returning, or for the purpose of
remaining away ? 4 ' Did you, while
absent, look upon and regard this
State as your home ? 5. Did you;
while absent, vote in any other State?
ThirdIt the persons be challenged
as unqualified on the ground that
he is not a resident ot the county,
township or ward where he offers to
vote, the Judges, or one of them,
shall pat the following questions : 1
nave you resided in tnis county tor
thirty days last past ? 2. Have you
resided in this township (or ward)
for twenty davs last past? 3. Wken
did yon last come into this county?
4. When you came into this county,
did you come for a temporary purpose
merely or for the purpose or making
it your home? 5. Did you come in
to this county for tbe purpose or
voting in this county ? 6. Are you
now an actual resident of this town
ebip or ward
Fourth If the person be challeng
ed s unqualified ou the ground that
be Is not twenty-one years or age,
tbe Judges, or one of them shall put
the following questions: Are you
twenty- one years of age to the best
of y our knowledge and belief?
The testimony of other witnesses
may be required by the judges if
they are still not satisfied that the
challenged party has a right to vote.
Should his right be established and
fie challenge not withdrawn, they
may then permit him to vote . after
tendering him tbe following oath
"You do solemnly swear ( or offlrm)
that you are a citizen of the United
States, ot the age of twenty-one years:
tbat you bave been an inhabitant of
this State for one year next, preceding
this election ; tbat you are now so
actual resident of this township or
ward, and that you have not voted at
Section 19 and 20 of an act to pre
serve the purity of elections, were
amended July 14, 1870. to read as
(88.) Ssc. XIX. It shall be the
duty of the jadg of tbe election r
one of them, immediately before
proclamation is made of the opening
of the polls, to open the ballot boxes
in the presence of the people there
assembled, and turn them upside
down, so as to empty them Of every
thing that may be in them, and then
lock them ; and they shall not be
reopened until for the purpose of
counting tbe ballots therein, at the
close of the polls.
(89.) Sec. XX. Any person who
shall, after proclamation made, of the
opening of the polls, fraudulently
put a ballot or ticket into the ballot
box, shall, on conviction thereof, oe
imprisoned in the penitentiary, and
kept at hard labor, not more than
three years nor less than one year.
Again, Sec. 5 of an amendment to
"an act to preserve the purity of elee
lion'' passed Msy 1, 1857, reads as
(74 ) Sec. V. Any person being
a resident of this state, who shall go
or come into any. county, and vote
in such county, not being an actual
teajdent thereof for thirty days next
preceding the election, shall on con
viction thereof, be imprisoned in the
penitentiary and kept at hand labor,
not more than three years, nor less
than one year.
It will thus be seen that the penalty
for fraudulent voting is a heavy one,
and, in this connection we desire to
call attention to the fact that no man
who is now in this county for "tem
porary purposes'' and "with the in
tention of leaving the same as soon as
he shall have gotten through with the
business that brought him into it is
a legal voter, and inasmuch as it is
credibly reported that there are such
persons in this county who will offer
their votes next Tuesday, it may not
be unprofitable to them to look the
penalty squarely in the face, as they
will snrdy not ecce it if they offer
Nor Is it much more tolerable for
those who connive at illegal voting,
as will be seen by Sections 9 and 10
of the same act, which reads as fol
(78 ) Ssc. IX. Any person who
shall procure, aid, assist, counsel or
advise another to give his vote, know
ing that such other person has not
been a resident of this state for one
year immediately preceding the elec
tion ; or that, at the time of the elec
tion he is not twenty-one years of age;
or that be is not a citizen of the
United States ; or that he is not duly
qualified from other disability to vote
at the place where, and the time when
the vote is to he given, shall, on con
viction thereof, be find in any sum
not exceeding five hundred dollars
nor less than one hundred dollars,
and be imprisoned in the county jail
of the proper county, not more than
six months nor less than one montb.
(78.) Sec. X Any person who
shall procure, aid, assist, counsel or
advise another to go or come into any
coanty, for the purpose of giving his
vote in such county, knowing that
tha person is not duly qualified to
vote in such county, shall, on con
viction thereof, be imprisoned in the
penitentiary and kept at hard labor,
not more than five years nor less
than one year.

A WHOLE TOWN UNDER BONDS.
Strange as it may seem, whole
town in Botecoart is under bonds to
keep the peace ! The usually quiet
citizens ot Howrytown were stirred
by internal emotions to do violence
to each other, and on the 6th and Sth
days of the present month pitched
battles were fought fire arms, brick
bats, Ac, being the weapons used.
Itwss a war ol the roses, in wrucn
tbe whole town was drawn, tbe forces
on each side being about even. The
Magistrate, surrounded by all ine
majesty of tha law, took up his po
sition at Amsterdam, and despewa
ed his right bower, the Constable,
for the belligerent parties ; but they,
by virtue of more muscle and. more
numerous forces, closed the citadel
and defied his authority. - A - deputy
and posse were sworn in and sent 16
tbe scene, and by iorce - oi moral
suasion tne oeuigerenM camet to
terms. After a statement of griev
ances on both sides, the parties com
posing the principal portion of! the
fighting population of the town, were
put on their good behavior for lone
year, under tne penalty ot exuu eaca,
"If there is anybody under tha. can
n later ot heaven that I have ia utter
excrescence,' says Mrs. Partington,
"it is the slanderer going about, like
a boy constructor.oirculating his calo
mel upon honest ioikb,"
[From the Tiffin Tribune.]
Now and Then, vs, Then
Is it Passes?
"HERE'S RICHNESS" UNLIMITED!
We have waited patiently for one
good, honest, or dishonest, "grunt"
from the Advertiser our our arraign
ment of Judge Sloaae, an his extor
tion freights upon articles shipped
in and out of this county. At last
tbat paper uncovers and comes weak
ly to the defence of its "pass" and
"money' candidate for Congress
defends Judge aloane. It is just
what we wanted, and we shall pro
ceed in the following to let the Adver
tiser skin Sloane and itself at one and
tbe same time, lo commence we
will give what it had to say last week
on tbe Tribe freight articles, and
to quota its remarks ia full so that no
advantage. Here it one cau say that
we take undue is :
'The Tribune still continues its dis
honest charges against Mr. Sloane
and the freights on his road. We say
dishonest because they are intended
to cheat and deceive itr readers. It
knows, as do all who bave anything
to do with freighting on Railroads,
that Local rates, on all Roads, are
much higher than Through rates.
Yet it dishonestly compares the Lo
eal rates on this road with the Through
rates on others. For instance it says
that a car load of coal from Pitts
burgh to Forest, 230 miles, costs
827.29, when it knows that the rates
to that point are 145,000 per car load,
and that the one it gives above is tbe
only coal that has been received in
this city over that road, during the
the past nine months, on account of
the high rates on the Pittsburgh, Ft.
Wayne & Chicago Road. Tbe rates
on the above road for a car load of
coal frou Pittsburgh, Massillon or
Canton, to Forest are $45 00, although
Canton is 101 miles and Massillon 110
nearer Forest than Pittsburgh. All
the coal received in this city from
Pittsburgh now comes by the way of
Cleveland. But it is very easy to ac
count for these dishonest and unfair
comparisons of the Tribune. It is
just now anxisus to have Foster re
elected and for this purpose it stigma
tizes Mr. Sloane. Probably bad tbat
pas been sent, nothing of the kind
would bave orcuned."
Shall we be unkind enough to say
tbat the Adtertiter has got the pass ?
We will not argue the question as
presented in this whimper ot the Ad
erttier but give this from that paper :
"Tbe freight on a car-load of coal
from Cleveland to Clyde, a distance
of 75 miles, is $12 50, while from
Gyde to Tiffin, a distance of but 17
miles, the charge is $13. Is it any
wonder that the people of Tiffin are
anxious for a new railroad ? Tiffin
would bs better off without such a
road as she now has. But we shall
grin and bear it until our new road is
If we are dishonest now, was the
Advertiser then ? Shall we be unkind
enough to say that the Advertiser had
not received a pass then ?
But here is anotber ;
"Characteristic. We understand
that certain parties in the interest of
our new railroad have been vying to
make arrangements with the Presi
dent of the C. S. Ss C. Railroad lor
the use of their bridge over the river
at this place, and that be intimated
that he would do so.provided the new
road would not reduce the rate on
freights at this place. Of course,
the proposition was not received, but
it illustrates tbe feeling sgainst lima
in this matter. Oar citizens have
too long suffered from the enormous
freights paid on the present road to
make such terms, and will do their
best to have a new bridge. We un
derstand that one manufactory ia this
place will save about 9o,'ZW per year,
by the reduction in tbe freight rates,
and our city probably I iuu,uuu anu-
ally.' Adoertuer, July 27, 1871.
bhall we be unkind enougn to say
the Advertiser had not received a pass
But here is another :
Our business men and manufactur
era will no doubt leei gratmea to
know that the Bailroad from Toledo
to Cresline is a certainty. Manv of
ssr citizens have no idea what disad
vantages they have and even do yet,
labor under, from the foolish and
blind policy pursued by tue C. S. &
C. Baiload. One of oar business
men Informs us that ha now pays on
a car load of merchandise, from San
dusky City or Clyde to Tiffin, a dis
tance of 17 and 23 mils respectively,
$17 92, while from Cleveland to San
dusky City or Clyde a distance of
61 and 75 miles respectively, he pays
but 910.00 per car load. So dis
gusted is he by this outrageous man
ner of doing business, that he propo
ses to start teams to run from this
city to Clyde or Fremont, and claims
taat he can save $16 per round trip
by the arrangement. A car load is
about 10 tons. Five teams will car
ry two tons each, which at 84 per
day, would be $20. These teams
could have freight each way which
would make 2C tons per round trip.
As the same amount of freight on
tbe Bailroad would cost $35.84, it
shows a net profit of $15.84 in favor
of the wagon line. It should be tried

Shall we be unkind enough to say
the Advertiser had not received a
pass then ?
But here is another :
"Small BcsnrESs- We have heretofore
"drawn our tape string" over
the Bailroad officials of the road
through this place, and have set them
down as very small "pert ton,'' with
few in the hill, but we hardly gave
them credit lor the small business
they are now engaged in. A few
weeks sgo Mr. SbumakeT of this city
arranged for an excursion to the Is
lands from this place, on the 8th of
September, and chartered train.
Now the Bailroad company bave got
ten up an excursion to the Island tor
this month, no doubt with the inten
tion of injuring the Tiffin excursion,
and for the benefit of their Road. We
hope ocr citizens will condemn this
dirty work by waiting until the 8th,
when grapes will be ripe, and they
will have seven hours on the Islands,
while the other one will only have an
hour.. Go to the 8th of September

Shall we be unkind enough to sav
tbe Advertiser bad not received a
pass then ?
But nere is anoiner:
"The Railroad through this place
is becoming quite liberal, in its way,
of late. Oa the Fourth, tickets from
this place to the Islands and rtturn
were advertised at $2 75, while for
the round trip to Sandusky they were
sold at $1.40. At Sandusky, tickets
could be bought at 50 cents for the
ruond trip, thus effecting a saving of
So cents by ouying icKeta at tbe latter-
place. There is nothing - like
knowing how to manage a railroad.''

"All the Railroads in the country

What Stoane Received for the Appointment

of Anson White as Route Agent on the Sanduskey, Mansfield and Newark
A few days ago we made public
the fact that tbat Sloane demanded
seventy dollars for an appointment
as Route Agent on the Lake Shore &
Michigan Southern Railroad. Mr.
Sloane has not pretended to deny this
but in bis last advertising sheet de
fends himself, on the ground
that the appointneit necessita

seventy dollars. Ia the same issue
we placed Sloane on the stand and
asked him how much he received for
the appointment of Anson White to
a Route Agency. To this question
Sloan has given no reply and thereby
forced us to reply for him. Several

and had been for a number of years
Special Agent of the Postoffice De
partment, and as such practically
controlled the appointment of route
agents. It was also his duty to rec
ommend worthy and competent men
for such positions. The Government
paid Sioane's traveling expenses and
allowed him a liberal salary. He was
entitled to no fees, not even a gold
watch for the performance of his duty,
nor was he under the law by its spirit
or ltttter entitled to any considera

THE WOOD COUNTY SENTINEL.
The Wood County Sentinel, a Re
publican paper published at Bowling
Ureen, in Wood county, attacks Hon.
Charles Foster in last week's issue in
a very uncalled for and ungentlemanly
manner, and we might add in a very
cowardly and untruthful manner. For
a public journal, friendly to the tri
umph ot Kepubuoan principles, and
the success ot Republican candidates
to engage in such lying, dirty work to
aid the Greeley Democracy in defeat
ing such a man as Charles Foster,
shows that they have a poor pilot at
the helm over in Bowling Green. The
Sentinel says that Jerry Nestlerode is
doing all he can to thwart the vote
in Portage and Bloom townships on
the question of railroads and is work
ing strenuously, day and night, in this
effort by misrepresentation and every
influence he can bring to bear. The
reason he assigns for this is that the
road will injure -my town," as he
calls it, but this is not the motive that
actuates him. The true reason is ap
parent. He is a resident of Fostoria
and acts the man "Friday" for Char
ley Foster, and becomes Foster's
month piece for misrepresentation to
tbe voters ot these townships, etc.
Now the editor of the Sentinel very
well knows that Jerry Nestlerode is
permanently, in business in his town,
that he is the owner of real estate
there, and what he may have said or
done in the railroad matter is solely
to his own interest, he knowing well
tbat a railroad crossing a few miles
west of him would be death to the in
terests of Jerry, City and no other
motive induced him to act in the mat
ter but this. It is true that Mr. Foe
ter is a man of extensive influence, but
that he owns the entire community in
which he lives is net true, nor would
he stoop so low as to use his influence
m that way had be tbe power to con
men at his will. Mr. Foster has not
sought to control the vote of Portage
or Bloom township, nor a single vote
in either, and we defy the Sentinel to
show to the contrary. Knowing this
to be false, we tear the Sentinel has al
lowed its columns to be prostituted
for another and baser purpose, that of
an attempt to aid in the defeat of Air.
Foster's election to Congress. We
are sorry to be compelled to use the
mild terms towards our cotemporary
that we have, but when engaged in a
bitter political contest in which the
interests of the Republican party are
at stake, a contest, as to whether the
Tenth District shall by represented
by an upright, honest and competent
representative, or be a dishonest ren
egade trickster who has no interest at
stake but his own. and that ot fleecing
the people, we think it very unbecom
ing an editor ot another district to
use or allow his paper to be used
against the the interests of the party
he represents. Mr. Foster, on ny oc
casion, has sought to interfere with
the local or public interrsts of Wood
county ; but on the contrary has used
his entire influenced in tbe location of
M. C & L. M . the B. P. k C. and
the A. & L. E. railroads through that
county, and now to be unjustly and
falsely charged with using his influ
ence to defeat the elections in Portage
and Bloom townships, just on the eve
ot an important election, is treachery
not to be overlooked or passed by
without i ebuke.
Judge Sloane and the Courier, is
trying to "pull the wool over the
eyes''of the farmers of Hancock coan
ty by asserting that Mr. Foster, by
his tariff vote on wool, had taken a
largu amount ci money from the
rockets of tha farmers.
There is not a wool buyer nor a
wool grower in Hancock county, who
does not know that wool was from
10 to 15 cents higher this year than
last If we were to follow the line
of argument adopted by Mr. Sloane
and the Courier, we might say that
this increase in price was owing to
tbe reduction of the tariff on import
ed wool and our statement would
have as much truth in it as either
that of the "extortionist" or his or
gan. Let the wool growers of Hancock,
however, bear it in mind that under
the present tariff law, which Foster
voted for, wool is 10 to 15 cents
higher than under the one in force
lastyear,and whether the advance is
owing to Mr. Fostet's vote or not, it
is evidence that the farmers have lost
nothing by the present tariff on wool
This stuff with which Mr. Sloane
proposes to feed the farmers of this
county is the stalest kind, of "flap
doodle, and no one but a bank
rupt political trickster and moun
tebank would stoop to it.
Look at ttis facts and vote
We respectfully ask the attention
of honest thinking IfemocraU to a
few tacts, whicS should govern them
in the selection of a Congressman on
the 8th day of next month. And the
first, and material fact to which we
would call your attention is that
neither of the candidates lor mas
important offlce are Democrats. Mr.
Sloane stands upon the Cincinnai
platform, which is essentially Repub
lican. If he is honest in his profes
sion, he Is no less Republican than
Chas. Foster; if he is not honest In
his profession he Is not entitled to
the votes of honest men. Let us then
take the most charitable view o' t'.e
case and accept as sincere h!s yro
fesalons of Republicanism as laid
down in the platform adopted at
Cincinnati. What then? Simply
that the question resolves itself Into a
personal one, and you are called upon -to
choose between Chas. Foster and '
Rush R. Sloane upon purely personal '
grounds. Both are Republicans -if
we sre to believe their sire aeer- -tdons.
As business men and as citizens,
then, let us see how the natter stands
between these two men who sre ssk
ing for your soffrages. Chas. Foster
is a geatleman who is personally
known'to a very large portion of
the Democrats of this county. ,IIe
has sustained business relations with
them, and we are very willing to rely
upon their own testimony as to the
uprightness and honesty of his char
acter. He ia proverbial wherever he
is known, for his public spirit and
private worth. Mr. Sloane, on tbe
contrary, is almost unknown to the
great mass of our i eople, except an
the head of a corporation that has
not been the most liberal in its deal
ings with our people. The Hanccck
Courier, which now supports him,
bears testimony to bis extortions
from the people, and his general dis
regard of their reasonable requests.
We need say nothing of the deliberate
falshoods uttered by him in his
speeches in this county nor of his
record in regard i the Soldier's or
phans of your State. These are mat
ters of history, and we prefer not ta
repeat them here.
And now we come to the question,
whom will you supportTon ? cannot
support either as Democrats, for
both bave distinctly declared that
they are Republicans. Chas. Foster
is an honest, consistent Republicans,
and a liberal and fair dealing business
man. Rush R. Sloane is a grasping,
grinding extortionist, claiming to be
a Republican, yet demanding Demo

FINDLAY, O., Sept. 27, 1872.
Er3. Jxff : I notice In the Courier
of the 26 th Inst , anTrrtpfe-rJv-g
me with being hired to electioneer
for Mr. Hnber, at 5 -per day, and
I take this opportunity of saying
through the columns of your valuable
paper, that the charge Is a bast Ue,
and Just such as tne Courier Is cspable
of concocting. I am determined to
vote for men that will best subserve
the interests of the people ; and while
the opposition candidate is a good
man in some respects, yet the present
incumbent has been tried and found
not wanting, and while it is a very
important office, I feel it mj duty to
vote for the man that I know will do
right (for as I have said he has been
tried) instead of the man who might
do right. And now as to the charge
I would say that I was never hired
by Mr. Huber, at $5 per day, to elc'c-
tioneer for him, nor for any other
sum or consideration, neither was
any such contract ever made, e n't ere-1
into, or hinted at. Mr. H. is too well
known among his neighbors for them
to believe him to be guilty of any
such low trickery to accomplish his
election. Again, had Mr. II. been
paying me 5 per day, ever since that
lie has been In circulation it would
have consumed more than half of Lis
next term's salary. So yon see,
Messrs. Editors, the story bears a
lie on its very face. It Is Just such
trickery as the Courier would resort
to, to subserve its own interests and
its own corrupt and wicked brain im
agines other people would do like
wise, and while I am going to support
the Democratic county ticket, jet I
think as best subserving the Interests
of the people, I must vote for Mr. H.
for Treasurer, If the Courier had
never been guilty of slandering other
good people, not excepting Ministers
of the Gospel, his article might dis
turb me a little, but ss the character
of that paper is so well knows, as an
abuser of all that is right, his article
passes by me as "the idle wind, wtich
I heed not" The Editors of the
Courier Itr the advantage ojfjne ia
one respect, viz : They can fling out
tbeir dirty rag every week to abuse
me, while I do not edit a paper ; yet
wise, honest people will consider the
source, and will also take into con.
sideration the dirty little political
ring who urges it onto such outrages,
and pass it by as a mere nothing. I
propose Messrs. Editors to rote for
principles, and not men, and- thus
advocate true Democracy and cleanse
our party cf all that is impure, the
Courier not excepted.
