FRIDAY,... ...APRIL 12, 1867.
UNION CLUB MEETING.
TUe, Union voters of the City are re
quested to meet at the Club Rooms, in
Buckknd'a old block, THIS, FRIDAY
EVENING, April 12th, at 7 o'clock.
Let there be a full turn out. Matters
of importance " are to ' be considered,
The Senate Committee on Foreign
Relations reported favorably on the
Russian-American treaty last Monday,
and en Wednesday the Senate ratified
it by a nearly unanimous ' vote. The
State Department will not consent to
the publication tf the document until
after its ratification by Russia. ' ;"
Union State Convention.
The Union State Committee, mem
bers of the legislature, and citizens
from all parts of the State, held a meet
ing in Columbus on Thursday evening
of last. week, and decided to hold the
State Nominating; Convention of the
Union party for 1667, in Columbnn, on
Thursday,' June 19th. . The official call
for the. Convention lias not yet beeu
Ohio Military Agency.
The transactions 'of the Ohio Mili
tary Agency, at Washington, under the
excellent management of Mr. Wktmohe,
are as follows since the annual report
made to tlfe. Governor in December:
Business, communications received,. 6,
900; letters written, 4,4.30; money re
mitted to Ohio, $11,180.45; number
of claims filed, 8,250 total on file, 0,
374. The necessity "of continuing the
Agency is very clearly shown by the
fact that its business is increasing more
rapidly than at any period since its es
tablishment. . ... ;
" Uneasy l's the head that wears a
crown "even if it be a sham crown.
Poor Maximilian is in a sorry fix, and
Undo Sam is 'appealed to, to help him
out A few days since the Austrian
Emperor -sent a telegram to bis Minis
ter at Washington directing him to ay
to Secretary Seward that the Emper
or s brother was surrounded by the
Liberals in Mexico, and his life imper
illed, and to ask the Secretary in the
Emperor's name, td interfere to save
him; that i he askedjtjjis of. us, as. purs,
was the only Government in a position
to accomplish anything.' Seward at
tnce despatched a message to Jaurez,
requesting him to let Maximilian get
away as quietly and easily as possible.
Impartial Suffrage in Ohio.
The Legislature hap finally passed,
by the requisite tbree-fifths ote the
Joint Resolution . to submit to the elec
tors of the State at the next October
election, the proposed .Amendment to
the Constitution abolishing all distinc
tion of race or color in? the qualifica
tion of voter?, and disfranchising teb
els, deserters and draft skedaddlcrs.
The officfal copy of the resolution con
taining the proposed Amendment is
published in another column. . ...
A reform so long deferred and so
imperatively , demanded by every con-r
sid-eration ' of justice : and right, wtnnot
fail now. We believe a large majority
of the people of Ohio will, vote for this
Amendment, and, therefore regard its
adoption as a .thing accomplished. We
shall, however, advocate it zealously
leaving no effort Untried that will help
to ensure its success.
Reconstruction Before the
The movement to test the constitu.
tionalitr of the Reconstruction act was
made on Friday of last week by Gov,
Sharkey, and Robt J. Walker, of
Mississippi . They made a 'motion in
the Supremo Court of the United
Slates, for leave to file their petition,
and the Court set apart to-day, Friday,
to hear the - argument The paper,
w Lich they wish to file is a long and
windy rehearsal of the history of the
war and reconstruction from the rebel
stand point, and concludes by praying
the Court to grant an injunction restrain
ing the President and his military com
manders, from carrying out the .law.
It is presumed that the Supreme (Jo.urt
will affirm a want of jurisdiction to go
into the question. ; To CoDgress, by
the Constitution, is Temitted the right
to decide what governments are thjj
established ones in the States of the
i Union, and the Supreme Court cannot
interfere with or reverse -that-decision.
What the Connecticut Election
Shaking of the result of the Con
necticut election, the Chicago Tribune
ays 'the .Copperheads have carried
no other- Northern election since the
-lark days of 1662,'' which is true.
The elections since then have ' resulted
in an unbroken series , of Republican
successes, until tho poor Copperhead
party has been beaten, bruised - and
Mattered out of shape, and lmost out
if existence. Too much political tri
viinph begets carelessness over-confidence
and apathy, and breeds internal
futidj and factions iu the .dominant
party. A email defeat like that in
Connecticut is necessary' to the pres
ervation of uuity, discipline and activity,

From the Independent, April 4.
Few of us have sufficiently considered the
effect upon the country of the completion of
the railroad to the Pacific. . We may im
agine the rich streams of commerce flow-,
back and forth across our- continent, inter
changing the products of hina and the
liart Indies with Western Ciurope, vbuiii
now have to find their way round the South
ern capes by s route four times the distance.
The opening of a railroad line between the
Atlantic and the Pacific Oceans will give os
the shortest road round the world, one which
has the advantage of lying within the same
temperate zoae. We have the shortest road
and the best road to the East. This, how
ever, is the least important benefit to follow
the establishment of the great highway.
An immense population must spring up
alrnig the line of tn road itself.' Experience
sjiojv that steamroads create their own busi
ness; they ars in .fact, among the principal
agencies for opening up, civilizing, and im
proving the wilderness. - Of tils 1,750 miles
between the Missouri River and the Western
coast, Which, up the the -beginning of the
war, were traversed only by the stage-coach
mule-team, 400 have been spanned by the
iron road on thelstof January last the great
er portion-of il during the past year. $ow
that tho energies and capital of the nation
are somewhat unfettered by the close of the
struggle for the national life, we may expect,
this great national work to make rapid
strides. A full third of our-territory -will
thereby be brought within easy access,, and
rendered astonishingly productive. Nature,
as if in her economy she had determined
that nothing should be altogether Useless,
has placed in the rugged Western mountain
ranges, and among the arid deserts of the
interior Western plains, rich seams snd veins
of- the laetajs which by. common consent
have become tne world's standards of value.
The United States have uort of this' min
eral wealth, as well as move coal and iron
than the rest of the world together; and it
needs only the facilities of access, labor,
machinery, and home comforts to render us
fjur times as productive of gold snd silver
as we have been.

went quickly out through tbe back door, and
the other poor fellow had his head tied np.
Both parties were rather the worse for beer.
The man -whose head was cut open, lives

entire proceeding. We presume it is 'not

eft one pile with aloe lying across it in such
a manner that a yery slight weight would
displace it aod throw it down. 1 he little

means caused the log to tali upon her. The
mother of tbe child saw her and ran to relieve
her from her perilous position, but wavun.
able to move the log, which was lying across
the girl's breast, Being deaf and dumb the
agonized mother could not give the alarm,aud

snd supposing that the log heap had fallen
upon her, came running to assist 'her. Un
fortunately he did not see that the little girl
was under the log snd stepped upon it. He

WOOD COUNTY. The Public School Examination--Presentation Addresses.
At ths examination of thS Public Schools
ba Friday-of week' before last, the scholars
presented Mr. u. Wam.ack Koss, tbe
Principal, a beautiful Silver Titcher, and
Miss EatHKR L. Ons, the Assistant, an ele
gant Writing Desk.-;, The. presentation . ad
dress was delivered by W. Kbidlrr,
from which we make the following extract:
' "To yod the Principal of this School, al
low me in behalf of my Schoolmates to of
fer the unanimous! testimony of affection
and. respect.- lho untiring zeal and as
siduity with which you have labored to
guide aod-aid u in our feeble, toilsome
inarch np the rugged hiil of science have
richly merited and do receive our beartrul
thanks. : Well do we know - the trials and
discouragements which have attened you
snd we should do you injustice not lo con
fess our inability to reward your zeal Hea
ven and an approving conscience do slone
bear to you a worthy recompense. Time
may hurry us on until the veil of the past
snsu interpose obscurity between memory
and the scenes of youth, but God forbid
that we msy ever forget you or cease to bind
to our hearts your name, your pure example
and wise instruction. May the blessing of
tieaven ever rest upon you.
"And to you, whose labors have lightened
tbecares ofour worthy Principal snd height
ened the joys of our intercourse with one
snother, we extend the affectionate congrat
ulations of a friendship which we trust will
continue to glow within your heart while life
and tbe recollections of the past remain."
Mr. Ross responded ss follows: -
"I suppose you, of course, naturally expect
that I should make some remarks in response
to this presentation. In view of the exhaust
ing labors of the evening and the past few
days I trust you- will excuse me with a very
few words. . .:
It is unnecessary for me to say to tbe pu
pils of the High School that it is with feel
ings of unfeigned gratitnde thai ' I accept
this unexpected, this beautiful, ibis valuable
testimonial of your appreciation and re
gard. During an experience of many years in the
school-room, it has been my privilege in
other days and on other occasions to be fa
vored with similar presentations from per-,
haps, too appreciative too grateful, pulnils,
aod aa to-night 1 look back upon those oc
casions snd recall the names and faces of well
remembered pupils, many of whom, scatter
ed in different sections of the country are
achieving for themselves honorable gticces
in life, others of whom are sleeping their
last long sleep beneath the clods of the val
ley, some under . the Orange or Magnolia
shade in the sunny South, hsving gone down
to death upon tbe battlefields of the rebel
lionas to night this occasion brings np
those other long past in remembrance,' d the
heart swells with grateful recollections, aod
I am reminbed that the names and mem
ories of those pupils are indissolublv connect
ed with cherished mementoes, so I do feel
that I can assure you,-the pupils of this
school, that this evidence of your regard is
not only now grateluliy appreciated, but that
in after years when the rough hand of Time,
Time the tomb builder, that within tbe past
year has rudely snatched oue Irom ourcircle
to be laid beneath the sods of yonder Cem
etery, "one who was this year in graduate in
her course of studies. one beloved by us
all for her many virtues, that Time, thai with
ns in the future as with the ages of the bur
ied past ' will hold on his fierce career, dark,
stern, all pitiless" regardless of the ruin He
may work, when Time shall have made
wide separation in our ranks and wrought sad
changes smong ns, as a talisman, this testi
monial .will conjure up cberisbed names,

perhaps, grown dim on the tablet of niem-
0I7- ' . ' . " ' '
. As to night those occasions long past,
loom up from tbe storehouse of treasured
memories, bright snd cloudless spots on the
horizon of tchool room life, cheering away
whatever there may be of remembrance of
hours of care a-vxiety and vexation and richly
compensating -for them all by tbe conscious
ness they attorn ol labors appreciated and
regard secured so do I know that around
this welcome gift of yours will cluster rich
ly laden memories of the present term and
terms that are past, during which we have
associated together as teacher and pupils in
the school room.
When I came to Fremont some three years
since to take charge of the schools of this
place, it was with somewhat of misgiving,
yet, inspired with confidence by the past
with tolerable assurance of ability to suc
ceed. I passed however during the first term sn
unexpected number of anxious days and
sleepless night, occasioned by no difficulty
with the tligh school nor any school in par
ticular, but in consequence of difficulties ex
perienced in determining upon, in systemati
zing and accommodating the grading and tbe
classification of the schools to the number of
schools and school buildings.
But those dark days were long since over.
I have labored with such zesl ss health and
strength Would permit and with soch ability
as I could bring to tho work, and I trust the
schools are now in a condition of toler
ably prosperity and I know no reason 'why
they should not grow .better from year to
I have ever met with the kindest and
most cordial treatment from the pupils uf
the High school and for this I shall remem
ber you with gratitude. .
I am glad that in the distribution of vour
gifts you have remembered your Assistaut
T escher, and shown thereby that you appre
ciate the faithfulness, the untiring zeal and
the self denying sacrifices which have ever
characterized ber labors in your behalf.
Feeling that for this she richly merits your
approbation it is with pleasure that by her
request I express to you her warmest grat
itude for the elegant gift you have munific
ently made to her. ,
Trusting that whatever ol sharps rebuke or
har-h reprimand the friction necessarily at
tendant upon the working ef school room
machinery may have called forth in the
past will be buried with the dead past; that
most if not all of you will be ton- d iu atten
dance another term or at least another year,
when a beiutirul school building that shall
sce.ui more like home, sIihII be yours; that
as many ef you as possibly, can will com
plete the course of studies adopted, which I
believe to be a good one; hoping lhat when
your school days are over, time will deal
gently wilh.you,.. converting few of your
hopes into disappointments, that the am
bitions end noble aspirations ol youth may
be Isrgely ' realized and that "leaving foot
prints of usefulness behind us on the sands.
of time," ultimately ours shall be a goodly
heritage. beyond the dark river. you will
permit me once more in conclusion for my
self and behalf of Miss Otis, ' to express to
you for these welcome memorials,onr sincere
and heartful thanks."
