A. C. Sands in a Two Horse Act—
The Immortal J. N. Comes to his
Relief!
Aleck 0. Sands, United States
Marshal for the Southern District
of Ohio, is in a tight place. He is
here tp attend tho Conventidn, and
"make believe" at the Presidential
end of the Avenue in Washington,
that he is supporting the Adminis
tration, in order to hold, bn to the
Marshalship and continue to fill his
capacious pockets with" the enor
mous fees he receives! But we are
assured by the highest Radical au
thority, that he is really sustaining
the majority in Congress against
President Johnson laboring with
all his might to shape matters here
at the Convention, as that his rel
ative, Ben Eggleston, may be re
nominated for Congress in the First
Ohio District. Eggleston has been
against the President and his poli
cy all the way through; and Sands
is supporting Ben forrenomination
and re-election and is assuring his
Radical brethren that he is with
them in their war upon tho Admin
istration. To Democrats, Aleck
talks in this wise: "It is easy for
me to conform my views to those
which are held by the President
for, was I not also brought up in
the Democratic party?"
The Immortal J. N. Free, upon
learning that Sands is playing a
very difficult role, called upon him
last evening, we . understand, and
tendered him the use of "his theo
ry," to help him out of the difficul
ty! J. N. suggested to him, that
President Johnson was right from
his stand-point, and that Congress
was right from its stahd-point; and
that, therefore, both the President
and Congress were right, from their
respective stand-points! The Uni
ted States Marshal adopted this
"theory," it is said, to be .used in
certain quarters; but the Radical
leaders claim, nevertheless, that
they own him, and that he ' is car
rying out their behests against An
drew Johnson, who will permit him
to remain in office but a little
while longer, as we are assured.

Butler County Republican Politics.
There ianjrouble in the Republi
can ranks in Butler county. :: On
Saturday week a meeting was held
to elect delegates to the republi
can State Convention on the 20th.
The Radicals disregarded the wish
es of the Conservatives; refused o
pronounce" against negro' 'suffrage,
and appointed Radicals as' dele
gates. There appears to have been
informality about the ; business'.--
Some thirty-five Republicans there
upon issued a call fotanother meet-
ing, to bo held at irTmiUou on last
Saturday; and a good large meet
inginfinitely larger than.;, the
meeting of the preceding Saturday
was held. ' - "' '
lion. L. D. Campbell was called
on for a speech,and an. able speech
he made,froni which we extract the
following, as reported to ' the' Ciii
cinnati Gazette: ' ; , :
NRGRO SUFFRAGE AN ISSUE.
It has been ' charged that this
Union party of Butlercounty,'who
are in favor of public 'discussion
and publicly resolving upon this
great question of negro suffrage,
are mar-plots, having no otliei in
tention than to breed discord , in
that party. I am one of . those who
oppose negro suffrage, and I shall
proceed to give you the reasons
why I am opposed to negro suffrage..
But, I am told, you are premature,
this is not an issue; it is not a ques
tion properly before the country
for consideration; it has not been
presented by the Republican on
Union party as an issue; it has only
been presented as an issue by the
so-called Copperheads. : l
Let us consider the question
whether it is practically an issue or
not; because if it is a mere vague,
abstract idea, that has no practical
bearing upon the present' condition
of the country one to which pub
lic attention should not be directed
then I confess there would 1 be a
degree of impropriety .on. my part
in forcing this matter belore the
Union party of. the country, for
consideration.
Not an issue? The Congress of
the United States for more than
six months have been engaged in
considering the great problem of
reconstructing the Union of the
States; and underlying all the dif
ficulties, between Congress "and the
President of the United States, is
this question of negro suffrage. '
Not an issue? Why, my friends
I care but little whether the State
Convention, which la to assemble
on next Wednesday, present this
issue to the country or not. The
issue will come; and if they don't
resolve for or against negro suff
rage, the candidates who are pre
sented as the representative men
of the Union party will not have
been nominated a week before the
people, through their committees,
will interrogate them on this point.
Not an issue? Let us go back a
year and see what the Unton par
ty did at Columbus. They got to
gether, arid then this fire brand, as,
it is called, was thrown in; not by
the men opposed to negro suffrage,
but by the men from ' the
Western Reserve, who are for ne
gro suffrage. ' The committee on
Resolutions ignored the question
and took up as pure a man, as gal
lant and brave a man as the State
of .Ohio sent to battle during the
rebellion, as our standard-bearer
for Governor- Gen. J. D. Cox. :
And yet three weeks had not elap
sed until gentlemen from Oberlin,
the very place where Gen. Cox had
been educated, came ; out "with a
letter interrogating' him on the
question of negro suffrage. You
will remember the manly and fear
less manner n which Gen'. Cox
met the question ; as fearlessly as
he met the enemies of the : Union
on the battlefields of the South.
He came out against it. And so it
will be again ; your candidates; if
you don't resolve on. the subject,
willie interrogated, and what will
you think of the man running as a
candidate for Congress, or for one
of the high offices of the State,
who, when he ' meets' you face to
face, and is interrogated by the
hard-fisted yebnjany of thri country
pn negro suffrage, as to whether he
is for of against it,1 answers,'1 with
his hand on his mouth," and says;
Mnm is the word." ' ,; '
" No, my friends, if ther' Conven
tion doos not meet it, if you do not
meet it hire to-day, your candidates
on the stump must meet it.' ' ,f( ; '
NEGRO SUFFRAGE IN THE DISTRICT.
! Not an issue before the country?
Why, fellow citizens, during the
present session of Congress a bill
was presented to the House of Rep
resentatives conferring unrestrict
ed 'suffrage on the negroes of the
District of Columbia. For that
bill every single member of Con
gress of the Union party lrom the
SState of Ohio, voted. My friend,
and. our Repretentative. General
Schenck, among the number, voted
to.confer suffrage upon the negroes
ofthe District of Columbia; not
upon any property qualification;
not upon any intelligence qualifi
cation; no, unlimited suffrage upon
&! the negrpes of the District .of
Columbia. . , .
.Now, who are the people of the
District of, Columbia? They Jiave
nd representation in Congress, and
yet.tbey perform all the duties of
ciii:ep, and discharge all the ob
ligations ,to the Union of these
States, and sent their full quota to
the battle-fields to put down the
rebellion. Why should negro suf
frage be imposed upon them?
-:'A word as to the character of the
negroes in .the District of Colum
bia. They are that portion of the
raje, chiefly, who have, come in
from, the States of . Virginia and
Maryland. The better class of the
negroes of those States, the indus
trial, hard-working men, the well-to-do
negroes, remained back und
er, the new system, and entered in
to- .contracts for working upon
farm's; and it was the more idle and
worthless class that crowded there
in the' city of , Washington, You
all kno w the description of negroes
who cme into the villages, instead
of remaining in the country at
work, ! This class congregated at
Washington and in the District, to
the number of twenty thousand;
and upon those the House of Rep
resentatives voted lor the proposi
tion to confer full and unrestricted
suffrage. Now Gen. Schenck and
Mr. Aphley, and other Representa
tives from Ohio, were as much rep
resentatives of the people, of the
District of. Columbia as Represen
tatives ot the people of their own
Bisfcricts in eoiae sense, because
evervi member ot uongress is re
garded as the Representative in
part of the District of Columbia.
And yet they voted to confer, ne
gro suffrage on that class of people,
notwithstanding the legitimate vo
ters of the District had just taken
a vote on the proposition, and vot
ed 7,000 against, negro suffrage to
only 70 votes for it. .
NEGRO SUFFRAGE IMMINENT ELSEWHERE.
I refer to this fact for tho pur
pose of showing that the probabil
ity is that the object of Congress,
who would vote to impose negro
suffrage on the unrepresented Dis
trict of Columbia, would vote to
impose the same system, if they
had the power, upon their own
constituents; and for the further
purpose of showing that this ques
tion of negro suffrage, desire to
avoid it as we may, is the practical
issue, and one that in my judgment
the Union party ought to meet.
Where meet it? These gentle
men 1 say i 0 don't express any
opinion here. There is a lengthy
editorial in this week's organ of
the Radical element in this county
that says: Don't express any opin
ion in your primary meetings; but
wai until the higher court issues
its decree as to what ihe principles
of the party are to be.
NEGRO SUFFRAGE THE PROGRAMME.
All, this shows that the doctrine
pf President Johnson is correct
that it has always been recognized
as the' true doctrine that each
State shall regulate . the question
of. suffrage for itself.' But the Con
gress of the United States, a very
large portion of them, have insisted
upon it that the President of the
United States,'and the Congress of
the United States, before allowing
those. States that were in rebellion
to,", be" represented in Congress,
should require them to confer the
rigty pf, suffrage on this mass of
negroes lately enfranchised as one
of the results of the rebellion.
This, isjhe programme, and I tell
you that, whatever may be your
views in the county pf Butler, it is
a part of the political programme
of these Radicals, that before the
next Presidential election . the. ne
groes" of the country shall be en
franchised, of these'. .States" that
have been in rebellion shall not be
represented in Congress, and shall
not; participate in the next 'Presi
dential election. So that it is sot
so miicb matter as to the right and
expediency of conferring negro
suffrage as it is a deep laid scheme
by which these men, for party pur
poses, intend to hold power for
four years more. Great applavis.
And whether it is a party to which
I have been attached or not, when
great principles are thus to be out
raged, I for one will denounce it.
Renewed applause.
After Mr. Campbell had conclud
ed his speech, resolutions were
adopted declaring adherence to the
cardinal principles of the Union
party; that the lately insurgent
States are integral parts of the Un
ion, and entitled to representation;
that Stale Sovereignty in the sense
of secession is a heresy ; but that
all attempts by the Federal Gov
ernment to usurp the rights reserv
ed to the States and the people,
should be condemned; that to each
State belongs the exclusive right
to define the qualifications ot its
voters, and condemn any attempt
to extend the right of suffrage in
Ohio to the Negroes; that they had
undiminished confidence in the in
tegrity and patriotism of President
Johnson; that lasting gratitude is
due to the heroic men of tho army
and navy for their defense of the
Constitution and Union. All Uni
on men in the county who sympa
thize in. the meeting were constitu
ted delegates to the State Conven
tion, with instructions to insist
upon the adoption of ' the resolu
tions, the substance of which we
have stated. A County Central
Committee was likewise appointed,
and the establishment of a new
"Union paper" was recommended.
All the Republicans of Butler
county won't go Negro Suffrage.
That's settled. How will it be
throughout the State?
John Randolph Headed.
Randolph wns traveling through a part
of Virginia, In which ho vrta not acquaints
ed; meantime ' he stopped at an inn near
the forks of tho road. The inn-keeper was
a fine gentleman, and no doubt one of the
first families in the Old Dominion. Know
ing who his distinguished gncst was, he
endeavored, during the evening, to draw
hlra into conversation, but failed in all his
efforts. But in tho morning, when Mr
Randolph was ready to start, ho oiled for
Li bill, which, on being presented, was
paid. The landlord, still anxious to havo
some conversation with him be gan as fol
lows :
"Which way arc you travcllug, Mr. Ran
dolph f"
"Sir," said Randolph, with a look of dis
pleasure, "haven't I paid my bill !"
"Yes."
"Do I owo you anything more
"No."
"Well, I'm going just where I please do
you understand V
"Yes." .
The landlord by this time got somewhat
excited and Mr. Randolph drove off. But,
to the landlord's surprise, in a few minutes
the servant came to inquire for his master
which of the forks of tho road to take
Mr. Randolph not being out of hearing
distance, he spoke out, to the top of his
voice:
' "Mr. Randolph, you don't owe me one
cent; Just take which road you please,"
The New York Tribune says:
"The colored men of New Jersey
are moving to contest legally their
right to the ballot. Claiming that,
a3 tax-payers, representation is due
them in the enactment and admin
istration of the laws, they will offer
their votes at the next election,
and, if refused, they will bring the
matter to the courts, and there lay
open the whole 'question of suff
rage. . The most intelligent and
wealthy colored men of the State
lead the enterprise, which retains
for its chief lawyer, General B. F.
Butler. A meeting to swell the
movement will be held in Newark
on Friday. We. are glad that it
has its beginning in New Jersey,
and hope that this spirited exam
ple will be followed in other States."
We hope so, too. Let the courts
settle the matter as soon as possi
ble. And while they are consider

them also include female tax-payers

A Few Plain Thoughts.
From the accession of Mr. Jefler
son to power in 1801 until the ad
vent or Mr. Lincoln in 1861, tho
Government was conducted on
Democratic principles. There
were, it is true, long intervals,
men belonging to other political or
ganizations chosen; bat after they
Were installed in office, they found
it impracticable to carry on their
administrations upon the narrow
and contracted views of the faction"
accidentally in power. This was
the case With John Quincy Adams
John Tyler so of Fillmore, and so
also, of Andrew Johnson, the pres
ent encumbent of the Presidential
chair. t We appeal to every un
prejudiced mind if such is not the
fact.
This being tho case, then, let us
study the history of the Republic
for the sixty long years above re
ferred to. Can we find anywhere,
in any age of the. world, or in any
nation, a parallel to tho happiness
and prosperity of ths American'
people? Crime was almost un
known, and the taxes were so light
as to be scarcely felt by the peo
ple. And, by way of contrast, can
we find such wretchedness any
where as followed the overthrow
of the Democratic party in 1860!
It is literally true, and so impartial
history will read, that the immense
national debt under which we are
staggering, the whole cost of the
gigantic war through which we
have passed, its vast slaughter of
men and' destruction of property,'
and the enormous taxation entaiU
ed upon us and our children for
generations to come, , are the re
turns the people have received for
their misplaced confidence in the
Abolition party.
If the Abolition party had not
obtained control of the Govern
ment, it is admitted that there
would havo been no war no
slaughtering of tens of thousands
of men, no destruction of thousands
of millions of property, and no
weight of taxation that will for
long years cripple the industry ot
tne nation ana reduce to senaom
the laboring classes. The Aboli
tion party cannot shift the respon
sibility on the -Deniocratic ' party;
Tho representatives of the Demo
cratic party in Congress voted for
every proposition for a compro
mise voted for the resolutions
which the late Senators Douglas
and Crittendon declared would re
suit in a "just and honorable set
tlement of our national difficult
ies;" ond the representatives of
the Abolition party voted against
and defeated them, and loudly cried
for the shedding of blood I
These are all facts which cannot
be controverted, and the only hope
for the nation, the only security
for the future, is in the restoration
of the Democratic party to poweh
The Government of this country
never has beerl, and, what is more
never will be, successfully admin
istered upon any other than the
Democratic theory. Other parties
have tried a different theory and
failed, and the Abolition party of
the present day will be the most
conspicuous failure of then! alh
Its leaders are fanatics not states
man. Its policy is inconsistent
extravagant and mischievous! and
so long as it holds the reins of pow
er tho prosperity of the country
will be made to suffer, ahd dejsay
and death to our political institu
tions will be the final and inevita
