having, as yet, become habituated to such
things. Don't tale on so my lads; it is noth
ing after you get used to it ; although we con
fess it seems rather hard to be decapi
tated bv onos own politiral friends. The dem-
ocratic convention assembled at this place two
weeks since, for the purpose of nominating the
proper county officers, nnd also to present to
tbe people a candidate for Representative,;
to receive their votes and support at the com
ing election. Of course there was the usual
amount of electioneering, us the cash accounts
for tbo day, of many of the groceries could
testify which is commonly practiced on such
occasions, and after much dt'iberation(?) we
submit whether iiV working would Dot be
tbe more appropriate term a full ticket was
made out, which reads as follows:
For Representative, A. J. Dickinson. Au
ditor, II. E. Clark. Sheriff Jonas Smith
Prosecuting Attorney T. P. l'incfrocli. Cor
oner Isaac Swank. Commissioner, Michael
Read. Infirmary Director, Saxton Iiathbtin.
Tbo Democrat of last week, comes out with
a flaming leader, extoling tbe nominees to the
skies, giving their privato history where it
may be both complimentary and beniGcial
reserving it to be sure, whore of an oppositof
character and "piling it up" sublimely. The
Democrat man might have spared himself so
much trouble, as most of these men are known
to the people, and of course, they will act as
they shall deem best about supporting them.
It is not our purpose, at present, to speak of
tbo claims of these gentleman upon the voters
of Sandusky County, saving those of the can
didate for Representative, Mr. A. J. Dicken
son. Against this genllom3n as a private cit
izen, we have nothing to say; and if we bad,
the columns of a paper is uct the placo to
express it. But when he, or any other per
son, comes before the people, claiming their
support to elect him to n high and responsible
station, we have a right to canvass his politi
cal merits and demerits, to see if those claims
be well founded, And before wo go farther,
wo will her state it as our settled convictions-
that no man should be so presumptious as to
ask the people to reward Sum with honors anil
emoluments, unless lie can point to some act
of his lifo which shall Drove him to be worthy
and deserving. The custom has obtained of
lain vonrs. since tbe I'reat Political cori'Un-

tions of contending panics, for any ambitious
and scheming politician to announce bis name
as a candidate, (or for the sake of keeping up
tbe eppearanet of modesty, procuring Some
friend to do so for him,) and if asked to ex
plain bis principles, he points to the name of
Lis party and stacs that bo never belonged to
any other, or is fully in favor of all the meas
ures of that parry. His name once before
tbe people, himself and friends instantly set to
work to secure his nommation ; and the more
corrupt and rascally himself and his assistants
are, tbe more certain are they of success.
Tbe better men of the party msy see that
this candidate is not a reliablo and worthy
man. But for fear that a fuss may be kicked

disturbed, and perhaps a split occas:oned,

lion. Such a statu of aff.iirs is scandalous
a libel upon the good sciiso of the peop'e
of Ohio. When men employ nttotneys to
transact their business, they niccarelul to rn-1
ige such nun as have in their profession,
and who will not, by their blinJnoss, occasion
unless bills of cost to be put upon them.
And vet these same men am so inconsistent
as to send attorneys to tho seat of govern-
nient, who make lliein useless, and btctimu-
late bills of cost; and what is still woise, thev
nav these same men the very same price foV
which they might obtain the services of more
experienced Had better iiifoimed persons.
These arc some of the evils of the p'csenl
caucus FjsUm. Al m r" J. D'ukeiuon wiis
nominated by the caucus machine, and is the
caucus but not tho peoples candidate
We object to him, then for this reason fust.
In the second place, w e object to him because
he has never done an) thing for the people, or
the party who nominules him, which inaKes
him in .or'.hy if the rcwa' d. 'ibiidly, wool
ject to him because we doubt his ability to
discharge the manifold duties which must
devolve upon, him, or any other person, hol
ding the responsible station of a luwmaker for
the people of Ohio. And in the fourth place,
wo object to him because of his position on
the Temperance question, and upon the ques
tion of the sale of the Public 'Works. Upon
the Temperance question, he stands opposed
to a Prohibitory Law, nnd upon the question
of the sale of tho Public Works, he says nay.
As to the first objection, we urge this be
cause (he people are not represented by the
election of Dickenson, nnd we wish to put
down the caucus svt-lem. If what we have
before remarked upon the modus operandi
of a nomination by ibis system be true, it
certainly cannot be much to tho credit of Mr.
Dickenson as an honest man, that he has been
successful. And certain it is that it ndds
nothing to the credit of a free people, that
they permit themselves to bo coulroled in
their political action by a corrupt clique, who
nre seeking nothing but oflicial spoils. 13y
pulling dowu that candidate, they put down
this influence and it is what we should be
heartily glad to see.
With regard to the second objection, we
should be glad to know what Mr. Dieknson
has ever done to merit such high honors?
What noble sacrGcesbas be ever made, that
you would decree h'm a Roman tiiumph?
Nothing. Then be his reward nothing.
As to third objection, every person who
gives the matter n moments consideration,
will perceive bow responsible is the situation
of him, w ho would enact laws for govern
ment of so immense a territory ns that which
comprises the State of Ohio. The laws are
to be subjected to the keen scrutiny of the
w hole lt-ijal fraternity a set of men whoso
business it is to take advantage of eveiy dis
crepancr, nnd if possible, defeat tho correct
operation oftho law. It is highly important
that the man whom you send to represent
you in the halls of legislation, should be able
and fearless ready nt all times to defend the
rights of his constiuency and who has the
abilities to oriL'inato measures which shall be
beneficial to the people, combined with ener
gy of character to carry those measures
through. For these great purposes we do
not consider Mr. Dickenson adequate, and we
say it with all respect. Ho will mako a goad
voting man. But we bad a sample of a vo
ting legislature in the one of last winter, of
which it has been truly remarked, there was
never before so many asses together at one
time. It is for our own interest, then, as well
as for the credit of our own State abroad,
that we have able and intelligent men at this
The gtounds for the fourth objection are
these: that he is opposed to a Prohibitory
Liquor Law, and oposcd to tho sale of the
Public Woiks; or, in other words, that be
objects to the rcmoveu! oftwoof the greatest
causes which are burdening tbe people with
enormous taxes. We nmy have occasion
to sl.o.v up fully, Mr. Dickensons
position upon the two important questions,
and also their pecuniary effects upon tbe peo
ple. In the mean time we ask for these facts,
the candid consideration of our fellow citizens
If these be fraud, corruption, privation of

Thu following is its plan, as adopted in the
talc of New York :
1. Each member of the League gives the

or as much as be will, to be assessed, pro ra-
la, for the prosecution of ail violations of the
prohibitory 1 iws.
2. The League is pledged to get possession
through the ballot box, of all the ollices in the
towns, counties, and Slate, in order that the
law may be faithfully executed; nnd where
the law is deficient, that a more stringent one
may bo enacted.
The following is the Constitution of the
CONSTITUTION OF A COUNTY LEAGUE.
Article 1. This Association shall bu entitled

mittee consisting of three members from their
own number, a Treasurer and Secretary, and
also a General Agent, wlioso duty it shall be

tion of the Eexecutivo Committee, and also

the annual meeting of the league, nnd taUe
such measures as they deem expedient to pro
mote the interests and accomplish the object
of the association.
Art. IV. Upon the decease or removal from
the county of any stockholder of this Associa
tion, his or her stock note held by the League
cloill 1ii annulled, and nnv member may
have their notes returned or canceled at any
time, bv paving their dues.
Art.'V. This Constitution may bo altered
or amended at any meeting of tho League,
previous notice ol the same having been giv
en, or having been recommended by the Board
The form of the note of the League also be
ing adopted as follows :
For Value Received, I promise lo pay to
the Treasurer of tho Carson League of the
County of , for the Suppression cf Rum
selling Dollars, payable in pro rata as
sessments on the whole stock of said Compa
ny, not to exceed, in any one year, lifty cents
on a thousand dollars, according to the provis
ions of their Constitution.
A number of Counties in New York have
established the League, and the result has
generally been satisfactory. In Onondaga
County, the capital of the Association is three
millions of dollars; in Monroe County it is six
millions, in Chautauqua Conniy, two millions,
and in several other counties a million and a
half. This (so called) Capital, is merely an
enrollment of properly for the purpose of as
sessment, as above specified. Air. Carson
says that whenever their assessments hnvc
been faithfully paid, the legal power, through
the prosecuting agents has done, or is rapidly
accomplishing the work.
A State Convention of the Carson League
is to bo held in Rochester, on the 13th of Oc
tober next, to devise plans for carrying the en
terprise throughout tuo btato. loieao
"Land of the Living."
Said one lo an aned friend, "I had a let
ter from a distant correspondent the other day
who inquired if you were n tho land of the
living." "No." replied tho saintlike, venera
ble man, 'but I am going there. This world
is alone the land of shadows; und the eternal is
the only one of living realities."
Yes, truly this is a lund of dreams andshad
ows. This is not ihe land of the living: it is
the land of the dead. How true, and how
beautiful the thought, thnt wo nre "going" to
the land of tho living ! This land is one vast
grave-yard; but in the land we are "going
to, there are no briar-covered graves nor raoul
dering tombstones. There ure no dead there.
Christian traveler "through this amazing wil
derness world," bo of good cheer, "tho land of
living realities" is not far distant. Complain
not that vou have here no abiding city, that
you Cud here no placo ofrest. Your citizen-
ship is not here; it is in the Eclter Land; in
that "city whose Maker and Builder '13 God."
This land was made for you lo suffer in,
to dream in, to die in.

Whereas, the mo of Alcoholic stimulants
as a beverage is productive of great evils, by

ly demonstrated, to ficeour land from this
greatest of all scourges, and w hereas in the
prosecution of this great object, it has, in our
opinion, became necessary to call lo our uid
tho strong arm of the law to prevent thu man
ufacture, and sale of Alcoholic stimulants as
a beverage, therefore.

They alwuys "go it" fleetly,
The ulways "come it" strong!

Of pure imported stock,
Are often seen to range the green,
In mnny a noble flock
