thai Out. Medill was (be purchaser of
that pre, from ils former proprietor,
(Mr. Ellis,) had I not known a much of
the character of the present proprietors as
I do. But. knowing the men and knowing
the object for which the presses were unit
ed and knowing also the trickery and
treachery resorted to in order to effect th
purchase. Iam better prepared to hear j 0f stealings
Mien) uoaeriaaie io no menisoives ana meir
' task master out of the transaction, than
those who are less acquainted with the
men and their sneaking underhanded man
ner of doing things in order to tmstain and
' uphold corrupt, rotten and politically pu
tred clique of demagogues about Lancas
ter, who owe their escape from the prison
walls more to their shrewd manner of sap
ping the county treasury, than they do to
any mural or political honesty they are in
possession of.
It is true, sir, that Gov. Medill entered
into a OTiiVn contract with P. M. Ellis
for the purchase of the Ohio Eagle. It
' true, sir, that the willing serfs of Medill aid-
. ed him in effecting the purchase of that
; press by engaging in a regular system of:
wire pulling such an no honorable men
would have engaged in. It is trurvir.that
after Mr. Ellis became acquainted wiih
the tricks resorted to in order to force him
' iato a sale that he became dissatisfied and
threatened an exposure of the individuals
who engaged in it. '
It is true, sir, that Gov. Medill bcramn
. alarmed thereat and lent his influence to se
cure the appointment of Mr. Ellis to a place
under the general government, in order to
appease him, notwithstanding he was then
acting as private Secretary to the Governor.
It is true, sir. that F:iirticld County wax
fleeced oat of several hundred dollurs by
not letting the "Lancaster Tth'grfiph" do
the printing at 35 cents per quire, which
was defeated by the union of those two
presses and 75 cents charged according to
the admission of the present editors.
It i true, sir, that the purchase and un
ion of those two presses were designed to
further the interests of a Clique, and not
of. tho . democrat!) party, further tlmn
1 would subserve the interest of the Clique.
It is tiue, sir,' that fooling their power to
crush men politically nf;er they had got
' control ot the presses, they refused to un
dorse some of the nominees last fall, until
" they were threatened with the establish
ment of another press. It is true, sirhat
the present editors of the Eigle sowed tho
eeods of dissension in l.e party last full, by
asserting that some of I lie candidates Intel
got their nomination dishonorably. It is
true, sir, that tbey had a scheme on foot to
remove that same nominee during his of
ficial term of office siinnly because be had
succeeded in getting a nomination over a
distinguished member of the Clique. It
is true, sir, that Gov. Medill tins been mid
now is sustaining by appointment, some i f

politically.
It is true, sir, that these men hava bean

It is true, sir, that for years there has
been a regular system piucticed by the
Clique of attacking men a democracy and
endeavoring to break them down, political
ly, who would not lend their instrumentality
in covering up the dishonesty of tho Clique
and engage with them in farming out the
fttnecs to some of its members for years a
head. It is true, sir, that the great anxie
ty to get tho Lancaster Telegraph out of
the way arose from a fear that it would ex
pose the dishonesty of tho clique. It is
true, air, that the influenco given Gov

Tho error in tho above bill was mudo
by the City Council, aud tho Councilman

for it. If the editors of tho Each) want th.
proof of what wo say we refer them to April 4

trated on the honest tax -payers of the
county .They know that an investigation
into their acts woul J exhibits list of vil
lainy unparalleled in the snnala of politi
cal crime. To show how completely tho
public Treasury has been under the control
of the editor of the Eagle, it is only nec
essary for us to state that we found hills
filed in the Auditor's office where Mr. Tut
hill had presented accounts against the
Prosecuting Attorney, Sheriff and Re
corder, and WITHOUT TBI INDORSEMENT OF
THESE OFFICERS THAT THE BILLS WERE COR
RECT, would receive an order from the
County Auditor on the Treasurer and
draw Tnx amoust8. Ana wnen mc laet
is taken into consideration that this scheme
of public plunder was during the corrupt
administration of AsaSpurgeon thecerU in-
ty of frauds existing in these accounts
will be demonstrated beyond the shadow
of a doubt. But there is another feature
to be found on record that is still more
glaring, if possiple, than this, and exhib
its a stratagem in political rascality that
would have done honor to a Swart wout or
Price, and unless the editor of the Eagle
can satisfactorily explain the "transaction"
it will of itself be weight enough to sink
him to the lowest depths of political cor
ruption and dogredalion. We find on the
order Book an amount of nearly three
in kd red dollars the editor of the Eagl
has taken from the county Treasury of
Which NO ACCOCKT CAN BE GIVES, AS WE
CAN FIND NO BILLS ON FILE SPECIFYING 0R
WHAT PURPOSES THIS LARGE AMOUNT WAS
expensed. Notwithstanding we have made
three examinations to find the bills con
taining the items for which this amount
was drawn we have failed to do so, nnd
now call upon Mr. Tuthill to make a satis
factory explanation. These facts go to
explain, to a very great extent, the reason
why Asa Spurgcon so frequently nnd em
phatically declared that the money he took
from tho county Treaury was principally
devoted to the interests of tho Red Lodge
Clique and appropriated to the liangorson.
No wonder these men shiver and shake
whenever an investigation into their con
duct is suggested, for if such developments
of rascality can bo brought to light by has
tily running over the accounts of one mem
ber of the clique, what, we would ask,
would bo the result of a thorough investi
gation into the depraved acts of tho whole?
And yot thoso are tho fuels in relation to
items of public plunder which James W.
Towson declares are "so well covered up
as to defy detection," notwithstanding ho
was officiating in the Auditor's office at the
For the Lauruttr Ciett
LiTuoroLis, April 30th, 1855.
Mr, Editor. 1 have been a member of
the Democratic party ever since I have
been a voter. ' Indeed, I was born under
democratic influences, and reared and edu
cated a democrat. My prejudices have
consequently been with the party to which
I belonged, nnd so strong have they been
at times, with myself, as I have no doubt
lias Deen the case with others, mat tney
usurped the place of judgment and better
lniormation, lo look over ana screen uie
party and its leaders, from sensure and
eondemnnlion, which very frequently they
deserved, and particularly the latter. 'On
the other hand, how quick it seizes hold of
the very appearance of evil in the oppo
site pany, lo magnify it ten fold, and heap
up the severest reproach where uuteven a
slight mistake or scan-civ a fault could
he discovered. Thisslaie of feeling exists
to mo're or less extent with three fourths
of the -members of both the whig and dem
ocratic parties. It is nil wrong us it blinds
the judi'mentand jrives encouragement to
the leaders of both parlies io be guilty of
recklessness and rascality upon the faith of
the prolection and sympathy of men, party
prejudice and party drill, to help them
through with such party delinquences as
may occur from time to time. 1 have long
desired to nee a reform party governed by
higher and purer principles thnn those
which control the whig Hnd democratic
parties. Suoh a pnr'y I believe hns now
germinated out of the decay of the other
two, in the union of the American people
upon the broad basis f "An American
Party." Such a union has oiiginated from
political and moral causes, which have
been operating for years with a power and
an influence upon the hearts and judgment
of the men of all parties and which have
consummated an end most glorious for
tho nation and its future prosperity. I he
American Partt i an innate sentiment
of the American People; and hence tho
trength, energy and progress of tho re
form which is sweeping over the country
Such views nnd such sentiments I now
hear very frequently among my friends
nd neighbors ot both political parties.
You may bo assured the people are think-
nT and talking about these tilings, ine
more such thoughts and hiich talk go on
tho more the leaven will work. It fore
shadows a sad fate fordemagogucsand pol
iticians, and I hope will soon come and
teach such men that they must go and
seek a livelihood by some honcst,industrial
pursuit, thereby saving them a great many
ajiuo fits, and heart aches, and crocodile
tears on account of their deep concern for
the interests of tho dear peovlk. ihey

don't thank them to trouble themselves so
much about ours. , This is plain talk, but
t is the truth, and plain talk is the best af
ter all. 1 know politicians have great skill

me these peculations wore committed
nnd consequently must have been cogni
zant to all these "transactions." Here wo
find in one instance some three hundred
and NiNKtr-Foun dollars peculated out of
the public funds. This, added to the items
notACCousTEr ron,will swell the nmount to
some eight hundred dollars, and vet this
not more than one half the amount we

A significant fact, truly, that there are not
nomrh tisurcs in our establishment to
foot up" tho rascality of even one mem
r of the Rod Lodge Clique! What we
hall do when we come to make a ealcula-
in of tho rascality of the w hole we are at
loss to know, unless we send to the Foun
ery and procure a font of figures expressly
for tho purpose. We have already large
fouls of Bold Face Primer a id Nonpareil,
but if we find it necessary to add another
font to our assortment, wo shall endeavor
to procure one of Bold Face Rascality, to be
exclusively used in "footin!j up' the steal
tigs of the Clique!
We trust, render, we have now con
inced you that our oft repeated deelara
tions.that an extensive system of swindling
as been going on among tho leading dem
agogues of tho county, wero founded on
truth and are now proven, to your cntir
satisfaction by the documentary ovidenc
above riven. These facts cannot be denied
they are not merely charges of what
those men dosign doing but they nre un
doubted proof of what they have done, nnd
any on not perfectly satisfied with our
statements can go to the Auditor's office
and examine for themselves. We give tho
fact; as we find them on record, nnd not as
we "supposo" them to be they are facts
not Fancies but immutiblo realities.
Let the editor of tho Eagle explain them a
way if he can. They are bold charges and
strong charges, and will necessarily bring
jnto requisition the best tactics of an old
tactician to even offer a roasonable excuse
in thoir justification.

to do our duty, and when we have a truth

Wonder if that twelve dollar swindle
is really another bid for a printing office?
If it is, wonder how they will succeed?
And if they do succeed, wonder if they

ly lo the Clique anil could not he made a
tool of by them. The style ami tone of the
communication from Liberty pleases me.it
isjnstw hat the people think und talk and
in the langnagn of this communication I
would ask "Why has tho name of democ
racy been abandoned? Why tail that we
arc invited to join the Sag Nicht in order
to ellect a closer union ot the democratic
party? Why is it that the bitterst opposers
of democracy are now admitted into the
secret councils if this be a reorganization
of tho party? Why is it that wings are
plaoed on the Sag Nichts ticket headed
democratic, formed in a secret council and
democrats urged to vote for it, if this or
ganization is designed as a closer union of
the uomocrado party? W hy is it that

We waited anxiously and patiently for
the Eagle, to see what answer they would
make to these questions; but not a word do
they say, and I suppose for the very good
reason they have nothing to suy, aud
perhaps the less they say the better they
consider.
But tho way one of the Editors of the
Enp-le cots around the Liberty township
democrat's inquiry whother he docs" not
hold an onice under a Koinan Uauiolio in

says: "It is not true that either of tho
