The old Democratic strong-
hold Fairfield county failed
to "raHfy" Allen's nomination,
although exhorted to do so by
u iusually large posters. They
have just discovered that their
Democratic Auditor and Treas

dollar in the county treasury.
Thai '8 what's the matter with
Fairfield. To use the words of
her most prominent public
man, they have concluded that
the Democratic party is no
longer "a fit instrument of re
form in American politics."
A fine specimen of lead ore
was brought to town a few
days since, for the purpose of
having it tested. A rouehT an
alysis showed it to be very
rich, and pronounced by an ex
pert to contain 90 per cent, of
pure metal. A critical tett
will be made in a short time,
which no doubt will settle the
matter whether it will pay to
open a mine where the lead
was discovered. As to the lat

Here is one of tbe gems that
sparkle in the September, '63,
speech ot William Allen.
These abolitionists Bay slave
ry is tbe cause of the war. I
say it is not. They say slavery
ought to be exterminated. I
say It ought not." Perhaps
this modern Cincmnatus Is of
this opinion still.
Dr. Bowers, Dentiut, Mc ArJ
We ought to have a larger
manufacturing, which is to say
a larger consuming, element.
We havo farmed overmuch,
manufactured too little. We
have not developed the superb
mineral resources of the State
to the extent we should have
done. Some pecple are just
waking up to the fact that Ohio
has four times as many square
miles of coal and a vastly
greater quantity of iron than
all the rich deposits of Wales
and England. Tuscarawas
county alone would supply the
whole Mate with coal, at quad
ruple the present rate of con
sumption, for many centuries.
And yet with all these facts
before us, and many more of
equal import that might be
cited, we have been accustom
ed to think ot Ohio and speak
ol her as though she had noth
ing but (arming land within
her borders. Now the way and
the test way to promote the
interests of Ohio farmers it, lo
reverse this condition oi things,
and that is one thing our agri
culturists, through their organ
izations, should demand and
labor for. In proportion to the
number of farms we have, we
are not supplied with enough
furnaces, lorges, mines, mills,
and manufactories. We scratch
over tbe surface too much
without going down to see
what is below it. Ohio should
be, inu3t be, not less a manu
lacturing than a farming State,
and that is what her farmers,
wilh all their might they can
should now labor to make her.
A Pennsylvania paper says:
"John B. Storm voted eight
limes for the salary grab, nnj
