THURSDAY NOV. 22. 1S(!(i,
DEMOCRATIC STATE CONVENTION.
The Democratic State Central
Committee have called a State
Convention, to meet at Columbus,
on the Sth of Januarv next, to
nominate candidates for State otli
cers, for 1S67. We don't know but
this is a good move, for the reason
that, heretofore, this committee
was too late with their calls. The
fact is, the Sth of January is too
soon, and to put oil' the call until
July and August, is too late. We
prefer the 8th. Would rather be
in lime than too late. Who are
the candidates for G'overnor iu '672

NON-COMMITTAL NONSENSE
Mr. Editob:
An article in your last iveek's is
sue, upon the question of tho "re
moval of the county seat," is enti
tled to not a littlo consideration,
from the important position it
maintains, as well as for its literaiy
merit. Rarely, if ever, ha3 its like
been seen in print. Rarely, if ever,
will it be seen in print. Taking
the bold position that what should
be, ought to be, the wriler main
tains it with a strengh of argument,
an aptness of illustration, and n
precision and accuracy of expres
sion, that needs to be pointed out
to be observed. The virtuous in
dignation over the wrongs of the
poor man, was a little lame, owing,
probably, to its transfer to paper.
There is no original poetry in this
production. Not that the gifted
author is confined to prose; for his
many admirers will remember the
beautiful gems of fancy, w hich set
off with such brilliancy his previous
efforts, and which every one con
ceded were decidedly original.
lie, however, gives us a reminder
that his imaginative faculties are
still in their prime. Think of the
creative power which could see the
people of McArthur sleeping upon
"flowery beds of ase,"because they
"could'nt see" the county seat re
moved to Zaleski. This, too, in
such infernal muddy weather! And
then he warns them in the same
sentence that there is danger, and
that they will have to "stem the
current of opposition." Nothiug
but a dep conviction in the authors
profundity could 3o away with the
impression that the "current of op
position, if there was any, would
come from th'e people of McArthur,
and that consequently they would
not have any intrest in stemming it.
He tells ua the question of removal
will come, and then, rising to the
Bublim proceeds: "Letth question
come, and let the people decide
whether a place ef enterprise and
industry; a place that, is willing to
live and let live, shall have the ben.
efit of the public buildings, and the
citizens of the town the patronage
ol-the public; or shall the town of
I no e,ltelTrise of no industry, no
ben evolence lor the poor iu)joring
man. ho'J a -claim pre-eminent to
all others, and sway the scepter of
malevolence uny longer, over the
people."
"Sway the scepterof malevolence'
is good, we defy competition, and
oiler the usual reward for anything
bet ter. We rather think the people
of McA rthur feel ashamed of them
selves and will quit "swaying the
scepter of malevolence any longer,"
for they have had warning thai if
they don't,the county seat will be re
moved to a town that is "willing to
live.'There is the wholequeslion in a
nutshell. It is a contest between
a town that "sways tho scepter ot
malevolence," and a town that is
"willing to live." Could clearer
statement be medeof the compara
tive claims of the places? Then
follows a pun on "stimulants" which
is decidedly two pungent for repeti
tion, and in counoction with which,
McArthuris told "she will have an
opportunity to show the manner of
her manouvering." Failing to com
prehend, we pass on and lind that
tho wealth of our citizens is in
bonds which tho poor man pays in
terest on, "while tho owner can sit
upon the stool of Do-nothing and
thank himself that he is not like
other men of enterprise and energy
lorhimself and others' Whether the
"for himself and others" qualificea
in any way, or explains what pre
cedes, or has a meaning of its own,
is a nicer question of construction
than we are able to grapple with.
Further on we lind that the accom
plished writer is in favor of any
thing that will "awake McArthur
to a senso of her danger, and make
her" shako olT this dull idleness,
the stupidity of enterprise, some
thing that will remove the stigma
and curse, that the has had the
misfortune to be in possession of
ever since she had an existence."
Wedontknow whether he would
or not object to her "idleness" if it
wasn't 'dull. "Stupidity of enter
prise" is a pretty expression
wonder what it means? McAithur
in possession of a"stigmaaud curse!'
We have heard of "curses" being
on persons and places, but never
knew of any one, or anything, to
have it in his or its possession. lie
tells us next that McArthur needs
a Physician who will "cure idleness,
indolence and iaafevolence, and be
get within her a healthy spirit of
enterprise and industry, erect her
lurnaces, loundries, &c." is it the
Physician, or the "healthy spirit of
enterprise" that is to erect her fur
naces, Ac? Clearly, the Physician.
Let's secure him.
Next, lie says: 4,lf she lias none of these
improvement.-!, nor even the material out
uf which to make them let liersj any mid
act.'' Act now ? "And let her not cen
sure the man who has the manliness of
spirit, the actions of benevolence. Biillk-ieiit
to cast his ballot .and iutlueiico in l.ivorof
a town possessing all of these necessary
requisites, lor the happiness and good or
der of the citizens of the county." Iteliev
in;;, implicitly, "that Itirnace.-". Ac, are ncc-cs.-ary
lor the "rund order of the citizens
of the county. "' vc would respectfully in
quire how many "actions of benevolence''
are siillicietit for a man to cast Ills ballot
ami inllucnce fur the town with tltc lur
naces? If there w as a correct sentence in the
production, we would jivo it os a set on".
If it contained nny pomt.wlt or sense, we
would gladly give the author credit. Hut
as there is "none of these, and as its ap
pearance recalls former efforts of the same
kind, we insist on wondering why some
kind friend of the whoever he is. does not
take him :iide and tell him. and, if that
wont do. ukat it into his head, that though
he may be ever so line an orator, he is no
writer, and that the less ho appears in print
the better for hi reputation.
The question of the removal of the coun
ty seat will doubtless be submitted to a vote
of the people, and unless; McArthur poes
to a railroad, or a railroad comes to McAr
thur, the rourt-liouse may, within three
years, be turned into a "concert hall," and
the old jail into a "museum." Committal.
COUNTY SEAT.
Editor Vinton Retard:
Somebody who appears to think
himself "non-committal" on the
county seat question, has written
very vaguely upon it. We regard
this as no time to write unmeaning
phrases about the county seat
question. Tlier is no doubt but
Zaleski folks will make an effort to
have the county s.at moved from
McArthur to that place. Now, I
don't know much law, but it is my
understanding that permission is
granted by the Legislature to tho
people of the county to vote upon
the question of removal, and that
this question, like others, must be
settled by the Democratic rule of
"majority."
Zaleski has a right to ask that a
vote be had. This we can scarce
ly hope to prevent. What will be
the result of a ballot f It will be
no party question ; politics will
have nothing to do with it; it will
be a vote on personal and general
interest Vinton county alone in
terested. What can we hope for
as a result' Let us look at the
question honestly, and if we have
nothing to fear from the agitation
of the matter, we will rest quiet.
McArthur is one of the oldest
towns in the State. It has no rail
road no telegraph no bank it
has no public hall it has no fac
toryno manufacturing establish-
ment ot any kma. lne improve
ment since I860, during six years,
has hardly kept pase with the nat
ural decay of the buildings and
"wear and tear of property." We
say, it has done little more than
this. Within the past six years,
we do not remember of any single
residence, within the incorporate
limits, that has been built from the
foundation up. Some have been
remodeled and improved, but w'e
remember no new property.
Zaleski, on the other hand, has
grown, within little more than that
time, from farm residences, into a
respectable village. McArthur is
three miles from the railroad, and,
for years, we have." hauled " pass
engers and goods through the mud,
with no respectable effort to put
ourselves even in respectable. com
municating distance of the rail
road. Zaleski has u depot on the
main railroad within her incorpor
ate limits. Zaleski has more pub
lic spirit than McArthur. We have
the means the capital, but too
many of our most influential (!)
and wealthy citizens have no dis
position to take hold of any public
improvement. We labored for
years to get, by vote, a tax to build
a respectable school house in our
town.
There is nothing about our town
to command the respect of stran
gers, or to encourage people to
come here to settle. From Novem
ber to May it is a serious task to
attempt to get to town, or away
from it. The "old hack," it is true,
plunges through the mud and mire
twice a day to the station, but it is
a doleful trip to undertake, at best.
The age of improvement is up
on us. Time is money. Will we
put ourselves in communication
with the outer world, or will we re
main as we have for ten years
spending as much time, patience,
labor and money to get to the Sta
tion and back, as it would take to
go fifty miles if we were at a de
pot? The Scioto and Hocking Val
ley Road to McArthur is almost
graded. A very little outlay will
prepare it for the iron. The Ports
mouth train lays by nearly four
hours at Hamden every day. It
the road wao built to McArthur
from McArthur Station, that train
could run up here and remain the
time that it lays at Hamden. Have
we the nerve and money to build,
or aid in building, that road? Let
some of the men of our town, who
are interested thousands in the
county seat question.answer wheth
er they are willing to do something
tor the public and their own good
I have looked over the grotnd,
A show of public spirit can alone
save us, it the question comes up
on us, as it certainly will.
Madison, Brown and Knox town
ships are interested in the removal
to Zaleski : Vinton and Wilkesville
and Swan are hugely interested,
directly ; Clinton, south part of
Richland and Harrison are interes
ted by tho railroad convenience.
Jackson and Eagle will not be
greatly discommoded or benefitted,
and will care but little about the
matter. The public buildings will
be but a small item with the Zales
ki people, and the matter of taxa
tion will not be a question.
Many people will vote for the county
seat to remain here. If they see a proper
public spirit inanifeFted by the people of
McArthur, and n disposition to do some
thing to command respect. While those
very people will vote for the removal If
we remain idle and sleep away our day of
grace. Sonn old fogy may think I ani an
alarmist, and am trying to frighten the
people of McArthur into putting money
into a railroad scheme. I have only to
say that I am baiely awake to tho inter
ests of my town and vicinity, ' Prompt
measures may save us; but nothing short
of that will. Tho people of McArthur
flatter themselves that some of the Zaleski
Company said at one time that thev did
not w ant tne county seat. Albnv me to
suggest that the people of Zaleski are
wideawake to their interests; they have
bought lots and built houses, store-rooms,
shops. Ac. and to-day the trade of McAr
thur is suffering from the sales at Zaleski.
They are opening roads, and making ev
erything draw that can draw the crowd to
their place. The original proprietor! of
Zaleski may or may hot wish the county
seat-we know nothing and care nothing
about that. The people of Zaleski consult
their oiri intereits full v as much as they
do the interests of the original company, or
the people of McAi thur ; and their interests
will be best subserved by making Zaleski
