THE DEMOCRATIC CONGRESSIONAL
Which met at Logan last week, nomina
ted C. D. JIartin for Congress. His
competitors in the Convention were our
townsman, H. B. Smith, Dr. Olds, of
Fairfield, Finch, of Perry, and perhaps
others Martin, we believe, was nomi
nated on the first ballot. We suppose
this was the result of a nice political cal
culation. It will require all the votes of
all the Democracies and we hope a few
more to defeat Mr. Horton. It was
necessary, therefore, to find a candidate
who could unite them all. This required
scientific engineering. The other can
didates were simply Douglas men. That
was very good as far as it weotr but the
Douglas men alone could not elect. Our
friepd Martin; had . this advantage over
his competitors: He has been a year in
Congress, and while there voted with the
Administration every time. This gives
him a mortgage on the Breckinridge
men. Since his return home, we are in
formed,' he is a: Douglas man, and will,
no doubt, remain so until called upon to
vote again in Congress. This will se
cure him the votes of the Douglas wing.
The position is a most fortunate one for
the young Statesman of Lancaster, and
if it does not secure his election there is
no use for two strings to a bow.
We have no complaints to make in re
gard to Mr. Martin's support of the Ad
ministration.. He could not well do
otherwis'e. Men may dodge behind
quibbles and double-meaning phrases
before the people, but when it comes to
vole on a question in Congress there are
but 'two sides to it yes, or no. ' Mr.
3Iartin, therefore, was compelled, on ev
ery question, to vote with the Republi
cans, in favor, of all such measures as
itonded to benefit free labor, and promote
the interests and welfare of'the masses
of the people, or to vote with the South -crn
disunionists for the schemes of the
slave-traders as represented through the
Buchanan Administration. . There could
be no subterfuge. It was a simple yes,
or no. And Mr. Martin being a "Dem
ocrat" could not vote yesl with the Re
publicans, and therefore his name is
found recorded uniformly with the Ad
ministration - Slave - Code- Breckinridge
Secessibnists, of the South. We never
expected him to do otherwise, and he
-did not disappoint us. What is the use
of being a Democrat if you don't vote
with . your Democratic brethren? Mr.
Martin did so vote. Every Administra
tion man, therefore", should vote to send
him back, where he will pursue the same
course,' simply because he can't pursue
any other, without voting with the Re
publican members, and against his own
party. : , . '. ,
I" Bat on the stump, when talking and
not voting, is the business, Mr. Martin
can', very well be a Douglas Democrat,
because it will pay to be such; And
won't the Douglas men triumph in his
election. True, their !.'great principle"
cannot "be" benefited by him,, because
there is no possibility of bringing it to
a test for the want of a contrivance by
wrhich a vote can have three sides to it.
But here stinds the stubborn fact that
the vote must be either yes! or no! upon
.every proposition, and there is no pro
cess yet invented by which a Douglas
man can sustain ' his speech by his vote.
Mr. "Martinj therefore, - is not - to be
blamed for his votes.. And as no other
-Douglas man could avoid this necessity,
we dbVt see why they may not all. vote
Torr; Martin.' ; If they ' wilP look 'at
the matter calmly, they will see that
their doctrine was not invented for use,
in voting in Congress, but. to get the
votes of the people to send gentlemen to
that honorable body.' And for this pur
pose1 Mr. Martin will do as well as an
other, and he has the advantage, as be
fore stated, of having secured the Ad
ministration party in his favor by his
course during the last session. . For
these, and other good and sufiicient rea
sons,.we, rejoice in, the nomination of
Mr. 'Martin. Furthermore, aside from
his politics, Charley is a good fellow,
and if we must have a Democrat, he may
: as well draw the pay as any of them.
We congratulate the Democratic party
on the defeat, of the notorious Dr. Olds,
by Martin,' in the Convention, and hope
' to congratulate - the whole people of the
District on the defeat of Mr. Martin
ity V. B. Horton, a the election in Oc
tober.' . ; ; . ; .
. . We hear some grumbling among the
Democrats of this county, but as we
happen to be just now stopping for
awhile, in a big "glass house," we will
agree not to throw stones, if our Dcmo -
cratic neighbors will assent to the com -

Special Notice to Teachers.
The "Meigs County Educational As
sociation" will hold their Annual Insti
tute in Pomeroy", during the week com
mencing August 27. It is hoped that a
very large proportion of the Teachers of
the County may avail themselves of this
most valuable, yet almost gratuitous
means of benefiting themselves and ad
vancing the cause of popular education
The services of competent lecturers from
abroad have been secured. Amonj
these, Mr. Smyth, our able State School
Commissioner, is expected.
Arrangements have been made for
boarding the Teachers gratuitously, in
By order of the Exec. Committee.
THE BELL.EVERKTT CONVENTION,
Whieh met at Chillicothe the other
day, nominated a full electoral ticket.
This was consistent and right. We do
not suppose they expect to carry a large
vote. But if they are honest men, and
believe they are sustaining correct prin
ciples, the smallness of their numbers
should not abate from the respect they
deserve from their fellow-citizens who
disagree with them. We think they
are all wrong, but if they will repudiate
all corrupt "fusion" and vote their own
ticket, in a hopeless minority, we can
well believe them honestly in earnest, and
shall treat and respect them accord
ingly. The evidence of their sincerity
would have been more satisfactory if
they had nominated a full State ticket
instead of pledging themselves, as they
did, in a not very straight-forward
course, to one, at least, of the Demo
cratic candidates. But let that pass.
If all the parties and factions would but
run tneir own candidates, tne people
would have an opportunity to decide be
tween them. But with the "fusions"
and coalitions forming in most of the
States, the votes of the people will be
without significance beyond the present
success of a few scheming politicians.
We shall hail the day when shams, dis
guises, intrigue and double-dealing shall
be driven from the political arena, by a
fair, honest, distinct enunciation of prin
ciples, and an appeal -to the unbiased
judgment of the people on the opposing
issues. And to aid in bringing about
this result, we would like to see every j
party star.d uponjts own platform, there
to recieve the judgement of the peopie
uoon its simple merits.
ANTIQUITIES ANU PE ACHES.
Master Howard Clinton Sayer, a gen
uine seven-year-old Republican, of Le
tart, last week presented us with a bas
ket of very fine peaches, and seven flint
darts. The peaches were such as young
Republicans everywhere ought to culti
vate sound as. the political principles
they profess, and as grateful to the taste
as truth is to the unpervertcd mind. -
Thanks, Master Howard, for the luscious
peaches. ' ' .
The darts were taken from a mound
on the farm of Mr. E. Sayre, the father
of our yonug friend. About a peck of
them were found in a pile. They, vary
in length, from two and a half, to eight
inches, and in width from one to three
inches. Some of them are white, and
some black flint stone. Some were evi
dently intended as arrow heads, while
the larger ones were probably used by
very ancient "John Browns," to grace
the "pike poles." And who knows but
some unremembered Gov. Wise, who
flourished in the days of the 'iMound
Builders," may have been as badly
"scared" by these "pike heads" as our
modern hero of the Virginia "Oyster
war?" We can't read very accurately
these untranslatable memorials of the
olden times. But being assured that
there is "nothing new under the sun,"
it may be safely assumed that the build
ers of these mounds, and the manufac
turers of these weapons, loved and hated,
laughed and wept, married and were di
vided, had their politicians and dema
gogues parties and factions their Bu
chanans, and Douglases, and Breckin
ridges their secessionists and disunion
ists, and "squatter sovereigns." We
suppose, too, they had some Lincolns
and genuine Republicans among them,
but for the want of "free schools" and
an "independent press," the factions
formed - a Breckinridge-Bell-Evcrett-Douglas
"fusion," from which resulted
very naturally the dissolution of their
Union and a general smash-up. -But
all this is but matter of inference.
We think there can be no doubt, how
ever, that the "Democracy" of those days
were in the ascendant, and thought, as
they do now in the purely Democratic
States, that letters were "incendiary,"
and the ability to write, "incipient trea
son," for we find no inscriptions in these
mounds. The "irrepressible conflict"
was, no doubt, "repressed,"' and under
the shadowing wings of an earlier "Dred
Scott Decision," the Divine right of the
strong to enslave the weak was fully es
tablished, and "old functionaries" were
as much "astonished" as our own im
maculate President, that "anybody
should presume to doubt it."
We thank our young Republican
friend for his present of these relics of
forgotten ages; . and assure Governor
Wise that, although Master Howard has
the dangerous ability to read, and is a
j rejJuIar reade of the TeieQraj)K vet we
l do not believe he intends to use these
: desperate weapons reading and flints,
janii especially the iattcr to extinguish

Dr. S. A. Weaver's Cerate. It is now
about ten years since this article was first in
troduced to the public, and such has been its
success, that from the annual sale of a- few
thousand bottles of it, the sales have now
reached Millions in the same length of time.
Now what is the reason of this great increase
of its use? Simply from the fact that there
never has been an article that could be com
pared to it, for curing many of that class of
diseases which have always been said to be in
curable. It has cured diseases after they have
stood for years, and every other tried remedy
has failed. It has effected permanent cures.
Another reason of its great success is from the
fact that when one person uses it, he finds out
what it will do, and tells it to his neighbors,
and the use of one bottle is sure to make sale
of hundreds of others. We have never puffed
it, or tried to force it upon the public, but have
left it to make its own way and establish its
own reputation, and it has so far done it, that
in most places where it has been introduced,
it has taken the place of all other Ointments
It is sold by medicine dealers generally.
J5How many worthless nostrums are of
fered for sale to the public. This fact is be
cause there are some medicines of real merit

and sale immense, which induces unprincipled
men to try to palm oft" worthless preparations.
But good remedies live long; Perry Davis's
Vegetable Pain Killer is one of those remedies
that every family will keep by them; no remedy
has so universal a demand; it is sold by all re
spectable dealers in medicines.
