UNION COUNTY TICKET The Philadelphia Convention--Andy
UNION COUNTY TICKET The Philadelphia Convention--Andy Johnson--"My Policy," &c.
There is n great deal of talk, in these
(Imvs, about the above-mentioned subjects.
We desire to say a w ord about the connec
tion of the Democratic party with them.
Our first proposition is this :
The Democrats are not Johnson men"
any more than they are Tendleton men,'!
or 'Vallandlgham men," or 'McC'lellan
men," or "any other man's" men.
The Democrats, as they announce in their
Stato platform, abide steadily with the
time-honored principles of their organiza
tion. Men may fluctuate, the great truths
which lie at the foundation of our organi
zation never do. Men are nothing. Prin
ciple are all in all.
Therefore, w o say of Andy Johnson, as
Senator Allen said of Tyler we support
him 'by the job.' So wc do Seward. So
we do Blair, and McCullough, and General
Dix. and Senator Doolittle, and all the rest
leaders In the Republican and Union' par
ties, as they have been. We support them
by the job.' We are not hyde-bonnd.
Wc applaud a good thing when w e sec it,
and when we see a bad thing w e denounce
it, come from w here it may. Upon this
principle we applaud the Philadelphia Con
vention. Because the friends of Johnson,
in calling that convention, have commit
ted themselves to many wholesome Demo
cratic truths; because they have put them
selves In conflict w ith the Radicals whom
we oppose, and with Radical doctrines
which we know to be destructive to the
Constitution of the fathers, the rights of
the States, nnd the liberty and prosperity
of the people. They have taken fair and
square, and direct, and open issue with the
Rump Congress' on the one vital question
of the day and hour that is, 'the restora
tion of the Union.' The 'Rump' is against
that and the call of the Philadelphia Con
vention Is for it; the people, the soldiers,
the patriots everywhere of all parties arc
with the Convention and its callers on that
isiue.
The Democracy Union-loving men, as
they ever have been from the Inception of
the Government once again throw them
selves into the breach, prepared, at any
sacrllice, except of principle, to restore the
grand old federation of States to its former
condition of glory and freedom.
So long, then, as 'my policy,' as proclaimed
by Andrew Johnson, means the equality of
all the States under the Constitution, and
their representlon in Common Council of
Hie Country, w e sustain 'my policy .' Vi hy?
Bwiiusc that U Pi-mocratic doctrine. In
'the job' of rolorhig tlic States to their
lroii'r rotations to the Federal Govern
ment, he may count on our support.
On tlie other hand Andy Johnson, ns
well ns Abe. I.ineoli), from whom he Inher
ited 'my policy,' did, in past times, many
things width the Democrats did not then,
and can not now, and never will, endorse
So far as the Issue between Johnson and
the 'Rump about 'my policy' Is concerned,
Jolin.-oti follows Lincoln, and we 'support'
the acts of the one and the memory of the
other. Yet Lincoln, bad he lived, would
never have received the 'unconditional
Fiipport of the Democracy. Neither will
Johnson. Johnson did good things, w hen
he vetoed the Freedmnn's Bureau and Civ
il lights Bills. Lincoln, perhaps, would
not have done 60. Therein Johnson is
probably better than Lincoln. Lincoln
might not have 'stood the pressure' of
Rump' opposition to his policy of restora
tion, lie might havo abandoned It; In
w hich case the- Democracy would have
parted company with him, ns, lu a like
event, they will with Johnson, ll'e mjiport
hint by tht job.
ASTOUNDING NEWS.
The Philadelphia Jacobin Convention
The Philadelphia Jacobin Convention---Preparing for Another
Civil War.
Tills grand Jacobin nnd political scoun
drel, Parson Brownlow, ts In a Jacobiu Se
cret War Convention at Philadelphia, ma
kin? revolutionary and crazy, fanatical
speeches for war. llo wants to organize
an army, in three divisions :
1st Division To be butchers, without
discrimination.
2nd Division To burn all Johnsoultes
and Democrats.
3rd Division To be surveyors nnd com
missioners, to parcel out the lands of Jolin
sonites nnd Democrats to freed niggers.
Hear this devil incarnate!
Up to the first Instant the delegates to
the Southern Loyal Convention at Phila
delphia, were rapidly arriving in that city.
About six hundred delegates had reges
tered their names at the Union League
House up to to-night. The following order
of proceedings was issued this afternoon :
The Southern delegates will meet at the
rooms of the National Union Club, No.
1,105 Chestnut street, at half-past nine
o'clock, and proceed from thence to Inde
pendence Hall.
Tho Northern Conference delegates will
meet at Independence Ilallatlialf-pftstninc
o'clock. All the delegates will be escorted
from Independence Hall to the Union
Lenguo House, nccordlng to the order iss
ued by General Sickles, Chief Marshal,
where they will be received nnd welcomed
by Charles Gibbons, Chairman of the
Committee on Reception, on behalf of the
Union League.
After the address of welcome and the reply,
the Southern delegates were escorted
to the National Hall, where the escort win
be dismissed.
To prevent confusion, no person will be
admitted to the Convention on Monday as
members thereof, except the delegates from
the Southern States. Tho conference dele
gates, appointed by tho Governors of the
Northern States or otherwise duly author
ized to represent thom in the Convention,
will meet at the Lenguo House at one o'
clock on Monday for temporary organiza
tion. The two bodies will be united in the
National Convention at inch time as the
loyal Unionists of the South designate.
The union w ill take place in front of the
League House in presence of the people,
of which due notice will be giveu.
Charles McClintock, of the Philadelphia
Tress, Is appointed to furnish the Commit
tee of Reception with tho names of the
reporters in attendance at the Convention
and the papers which they represent.
Tickets of admission w ill be Issued to the
reporters named in the ofllclal list, but to
none others, on Monday morning at ten
o'clock, at the League House.
Broad street, in front of the League
House, was crowded, and the reception
was in every way enthusiastic. The
League House was illuminated on the por
tico with a brilliant jet of gas lights.
In tho course of Mr..Durant's remarks
he said:
The uufortunatc people, ns fast ns cir
cumstances permit them, are fleeing from
their homes in the South to seek refuge,
hospitalities and freedom of voting and
discussion here in the North. How long
is this to continue? How long before the
loyal people of the Union will give the
loyal men in the South a Government
My opinion is free where every man shall
have the right to express his sentiment by
vote and in words ; where lie shall have
the respect nnd privilege of communica
ting, in every respectful way, what he
thinks, what lie has to say. Do you not
know that now the liberty of speech nud
tho liberty of the press is uoad in New Or
leans, and that American citizens were
slaughtered in the streets of New Orleans,
under the American ling, without provoca
tion f"
Ex-Governor Hamilton also spoke. In
the course of his address he said:
"Prepare your heart, and your arm, too,
perhaps, for another conflict. (Cries of
'We are ready.') You know the wicked el
ement that has produced this feeling, and
it is with deep regret that I make this pre
diction, after the sud and gloomy events of
the last four years. But are we to ignore
our friends North and South? What has
been my prejudices in the past, I am not
willing to to lgnerc the black man any
longer."
Governor Brownlow said he came to
listen to Mr. Durant. He had often read
of the hero of New Orleans.
He had just concluded a journey of one
thousand miles in forty-eight hours, and
came at the request of fifty loyalists
ot Tennessee. They came to n Conven
tion of what wns termed by the Execu
tive mean whites and poor sneaks, but it
was a Convention where it would not be
necessity to caucus in order to exclude
any of the delegates In order to produce
harmony; nor would it be necessary to
muzzle any of the delegates. Ills begged
pardon for having been the man who
placed Andrew Johnson iu nomination.
As God had forgiven him, he hoped the
people of Pennsylvania would also for
give Mm; but he would say it would
have been better if th$ whole ol the Ten
nessee delegates had been In Libby -Prison
instead of Baltimore. (Cheers ana laugh
ter.) In regard to the South, h would
say that it' the spirit of the South, wid
the rebellious spirit combined w ith the
treachery and Copperheadismof thu North,
shall bring another war upon this coun
try, and force you to leave your wives and
children, your homes and parents, and In
vade the boutli to put the rebellion down,
I w nut to have something to say aboutthe
division of the force. Let there be three
divisions. Let the first go armed accor
ding to the regulations, with small arms
and artillery, and let them do the killing.
Let the second go with pine-knots and
burning torches, and let thenrdo the burn
ing. Let the third and last go with the
surveyor's compass and chain, and we will
sell out their lands to pay the expenses of
the war, and settle the country with men
who w ill honor this glorious banner.r
( Cheers.) 1 ' '
Fcllow-cltizcns of Ohio, are yon ready
to sec these propositions put In operation.
Truly we are in perilous and dangerous
times. If tho people do not como to the
rescue, our country, our liberty, our fire
sides all are gone. Nothing Is sacred in
the eyes of these arch fiends, that stands
lu the way of the accomplishment of their
onus. Jet urowiuow do nung on a iuuijj
post tho sooner the better.
Ex-Governor Smith not for Civil
War.
Tho followlnff letter, from Governor
Smith, shows he repudiates the move now
being made by Brownlow and others, now
In another civil war convention at Phila
delphia. Citizens of Vinton county, if you
aro for another rebellion, vote the Rcpub

that party are for Inaugurating aelvll war,
if Democrats and Johnsoultes succeed.
And if they don't succeed, the Government
will be stolen clean away, greenbacks and

War Speech by Parson Brownlow.
At the Union Methodist Church, in Thil

Parson Brownlow said :
'If the President shall succeed and shall
conquer in his purpose all the Southern
Unionists and colored loyalists will have to
leave and seek some other abode. So far
as I am concerned. I havo fled from the
South for the last time, and sought the she!

FROM NEW ORLEANR.
Judge Abell Addresses a letter to
General Sheridan Defending
Himself.
New Orleans, September 1. Judge
Abell addresses a letter to General Sheri
dan through the New Orleans Picayune,
defending himself against the charge of be
ing a dangerous man. He says iu his ju
dicial station that he knows naught but fi
delity to the State and humanity to the
unfortunate, regardless of color. If a
dangerous man, that he has been a most
unsuccessful agitator. Until the assembling
of the would-be Convention on July 30,
the civil courts of the State had faithfully
administered the laws nnd as effectually
C reserved the peaco ns in any city In the
nion, the disbanding of two armies nnd
a large influx of negroes notwithstanding.
He firmly believes that not one drop of
blood would havo been shed had the mili
tary been half as earnest ns he In oppo
sing the attempted usurpation, ne says
since the re-establishment of civil author
ity in Louisiana, the status of Northern
men has been one of perfect salety, and
tells Sheridan if he thinks assassination
correct, to rejoice in it, but among good
men he thinks it will not add to his reputation.
The Difference. The Democra
cy and Concervative Kepublisans,
at their Philadelphia Convention,
had a union of the North and South
in their representation. The Jac
obins, on the contrary, went in
not ior the union of the sections
but for a union of the colors whte
and black. At their Philadelphia
Convention, the negro and the
white man Fred. Douglass and
Theodore Tilton came in arm in
arm together.
We are not in favor of universal
boasting (a system often employed
by others) of the celebrity of this
or that medicine, and we keep our
praise until we have positive
knowledge of the value or virtue
of an article. It gives us pleasure
however to recommend to our
readers Dr. C. W. Roback's Stomach
Bitters,' Blood Purifier and Blood
Pills. The Bitters, we know from
experience, give tone to the
stomach, aid digestion and re
invigorate the system, restoring
shattered and broken, down consti
tutions. There can be no better
remedy for purifying the blood
than the Purifier and Blood Pills.
A Question for Farmers. Will
you vote with the party which
mortgaged your houses and lands
for more than they are worth? The
Eepublicans ' did this, and the
Bond-Ilolders hold the mortgages.

Eoard has prepared its report set

necessary fo the various classes ol
disbursements under the law. By
direction of the President this re
port has been withheld. This sup
pression occurred in' connection
irith the order to the Second Aud
itor, not to pay any bounties pro
vided by the late Congress. Cin
cinnati Gazette, -i-
Soldiers ! here is a little more
light. Gen. Schenck offered a bill
itt Congress giving you each SS.33
per month. . This passed the House
with only two votes against it,
bpth Democratic I In the Senate
Schenck'8 bill was killed by the
influence ot Johnson and his
friends, while a new bill was bro't
in and attached to the salary ana
appropriation bill, lhis the ben-
ate passed. Hon. Bon. Wade and
Hon. John Sherman, of Ohio, both
voted against it, because, while it
gave the soldiers S100,it increased
their own pay 2000 per annum.
It was passed, however, ana it De
came manifest to Johnson that the
soldiers were to get eomo bounty,
at least, if not what they were en
titled to. Johnson tried a "flank
movement.," and, finding that the
report was favorable to the soldiers,
he suppresses it. Now, everybody
knows the matter was so referred.
Butternuts have been telling sol
diers that the Jaw was not com
plete, and that the President had
to get three Jawyers to expound it,
&c, &c. Where is the report?
Lias any body ever seen it 1 But
ternuts may deny the action of
Johnson, in suppressing the report.
We ask, . where is that report?
Why is it not published ? The
truth is, "Andrew, the great," has
decided that the soldiers shall have
nothing, and he and his clan, are
doing everything they can to keep
the soldiers lrom getting any boun
ty.
Butternuts tell the soldiers here
in McArthur, that they will never
get any bounty till the Democracy
get into power. We understand,
from tins, that Andy Johnson is to
keep the report in his "pigeon
hole" until the soldiers vole the
butternut ticket! Well, we say, if
he has concluded on that as a last
resort to drive tho soldiers to his
support, ho will fail as signally as
he did in making a political party.
It will take more than one hundred
dollars to buy the loyal soldiers;
and the report may fado away and
Andy Johnson's "pigeon holes" fall
into decay, and yet the soldiers will
sufler the inconvenience of being
under a tyrant, until they grow old,
before they will vote tho butternut
ticket for the sake of a bounty.
It is a 'Jole to talk about the
Democratic party paying bounty to
the soldiers; they voted not-a-man
or-a-dollar-for the-war rather too
often. .

EMBEZZLEMENT!
"What shall be held an Embezzlement
of Public Money."
Sko. 16, act of July 1858, laws of
Ohio, provides:
"That if any officer or other per
son charged with the collection,
receipt, safe keeping, transfer, or
disbursement of the public money
belonging to any County in this
State, shall convert to his own use,
or to the use of any other person,
in any way whatever, or
shall use by way of investment, in
any kind of security, stock, loan,
property, &c.,or shall loan toith, or
without viterestt to any Uompany.
Corporation, or Individual, or shall
devout with any Company, corpo
ration, or Individual any portion of
the public money or other lunds;
received, controled, or held
by him for safe keeping, transfer,
or disbursement; or if any
person snail advise, aid or vi any
manner varticivate in such act.
every such act snail be deemed and
held by laxo to be an embezzlement."
This act further provides that
upon conviction the parties guilty
"shall be sentenced to imprison
inent in the Penitentiary, and kept
at hard labor for a 'term not less
than one or more than twenty-one
years. Any failure to account to
or to make settlement with any prop
er and legal authority, of the of
nciat accounts or sucfi omcer or
person, shall be held, and taken as
prima facie evidence or suct, em-
bezrlrment."
We ask ; the Voters . of Vinton
County to read the above extract
from the statutes of Ohio, then take
the developed facts, in relation to
our Treasury, and see what the
state of affairs is' with us of this
County. Judge Craig admits in an
swer to ours of May last,-, that .a
check for $4000, was counted as
money in the County. Treasury,'in
tho settlement of the Commission
ers with Henry Reynolds. H. Ol
Jones in his "famous circular" says,
our "Finances have been deranged,
our, moneys draggled about thj
County in private loan and personal
speculation. n Judge Craig says, "it
is all balderdash" to talk about
benefit acouring to Henry Reynolds
from his Checks and such paper,
the statute says, "with or without
interest." Now we ask if the
court house clique aro all honest?
if they have done no illegal thing,
why they have not satisfied the
public in relation to this matter?
But the statute of Ohio, act of
March 2G, 18G0, makes it the posi
tive duty of the Probate Judge to
have the County Treasury ex
amined once every 6 months, and
oftener if necessary. Now Judgo
Craig says plainly that he never
complied with this law, yet, the
Court House Clique by packed
Convention, secures his re-nomination
and ho comes before the
people, and again asks to hold the
responsible position which he has
so shamefully neglected for two
years to lawfully fill; and they
nominate a Treasurer whoso skirls
are not clear from illegal tampering
with the public money, and ask the
people to re-eloct them. The thing
is positively an insult to the honest
law abiding people ot the county,
Act of July 28, 1858, statute of
Ohio, provides, that, "All pay
ments of money into tho County
Treasury, excepting taxes charged
on the duplicate and made peiore
the return by the Treasurer of the
delinquent list of unpaid taxes
shall le paid to the County Treas
urer on the draft of the County
Auditor, in favor of the Treasurer,
and the Auditor shall present a
duplicate copy &c.
We would like Mr. Auditor to
say whether he holds a duplicate of
any draft for 4,600,? if not how
was it paid in, contrary to law?
was it paid in at all? The Audi
tor is the accounting officer, the
clerk of the Commissioners, was he
present at the settlement of Key
nolds with the Commissioners?
He should be an efficient . man, he
should know whether there was at
the 8ettlementma facie evidence
of embezzlement. ; Why. don't the
Court House Clique, who : have
every thing their own way, ex
plain these matters? We are not
anxious for a newspaper squabble;
this matter was referred, to .long
before, this Campaign opened.
Craig came ' out in a long article
and tried to smooth it over--he
couldn't deny stubborn facts he
only 'made it worse.'!' Now the
parties allow tho summer to pass
awayiand? the'6ame jnri 'with, alf
this cloud of "prima facte" euilt

TAX PAYER.
This subject pertaining , to. the
condition of the county treasury,
has been before our people : since
May last, with, as yet, no attempt
ed explanation of the discrepan-'
cies referred to in the above com-r
munication of Tax-Payer, by those
who, of late, have had, and still
have, the control and management
of our finances.
By-the-by,anotherloan of $97,"
00.00 from the county fund, has
lately come to light, though it is
said, by way of apology for the vio
lation of the law, it is hearing in-,
terest. The law says, ' however, it
is embezzlement to loan, with or
without interest.
Some acts may bo apologized
for, but clear violation of the law,
even in ignorance, can not be ex
cused; nor will the plea of ignor
ance of the law, or of profit to tho
county, and especially of accom
modation iu carrying out any par
ticular transaction, be accepted in
justification of these charges.
Lot the people look at the facts
through the eye of the law, and
then determine whether they will
elect men to office who have no
regard for tho law; but they shall
not point to the treasury, or, if
you please, their treasurer's delin
quencies, and say "wo did it."
Men from the country say, why
don't you let us know thet facts,
that we may vote intelligently?
Now, the facts are, that at the 'set
tlement of tho commissioners in
September, 'C5, there was a defal
cation (without counting an un
paid draft) in the treasury to the
tune of $1,600.00. , The commis
sioners, we think, were deceived in
the matter at least,, one of them
we know was intending to do what
was right, but was misled by. the
repiesentation of the Court House
Clique. He supposed that draft
dishonored aud worthless, as it
then was, was as good as green
backs for four thousand 6ix hund
red dollars.
As much might be said of the
loan of $2,700 to which we havo
referred, though that transaction,
we are told, is connected with the
"poor farm speculation," . in which
our county officers have lately been
engaged, with a loss to the county
of from three to five hundred dol
lars! But, at present, we havo, no
occasion to enter into particulars;
we wish only to call the attention
of the tax-payers of Vinton coun
ty to the general facts, and ask
them whether they will re-elect
these men to office who are parties
to, and cognizant of, the facts of
that September (1805) settlement.
What can our commissioners do,
if the same auditor and treasurer
shall be re-elected and again placed
in charge of the business and fund3
of bur county? " V
Men of Vinton County 1 remem
ber, your interests are at 6take.
Why voto for men who have con
verted.your treasurer's office into
a "broker shop," 60 far, at least, as
to accommodate some.' of their
"pets."
Vote for men who know the law,
and will observe it, and then havo
j-our interests secured, and the bus
iness of your county fairly and
honestlv conducted.
