ago, when the Radioala in Congress were
discussing the Impeachment - business ia
caucus, Judge Spalding took occasion to
denounce tbe whole movement as a piece
of tbe most perfect folly aod insisted that -the,,
two months investigation . that had,
been made by the Jddioiary 'committee
had proved nothing. That's wholesomo
lalk,r and it squares exactly with the
truth. All along the Democratic press
have told their . readers the same thing,'
while the Republican press have cried :
"Wait and see." They have hoped that
something might "tarn up" that , would ,

Cheering Signs.
VVe have' never known a time, to ear- -ly
in a campaign, when the Democracy ,
of. Ohio were so thoroughly aroused
at present. From every quarter w re-'
eaive intelligence of the organization of
Democratio Clubs by the earnest,' Van-''
tiring, and. invinoiblo friends of an un
divided oountry. They see the efforts,
that are being pat forth by the party in
power1 to transform our Government into
a moneyed aristocracy, and they are de'
tormined to organize their strength and
rely upon the virtue, intelligence and
patriotism .of the people for snocess.
And this is not the only cheering evf- .
denoe that greets ns. From all quarters
comes up a demand for Dsmoeratie pa-.
Eers. Ia localities where our papers
ave been literally prororibed out of cis
eolation, orders are being forwarded for
respectable clubs, and even those Repnb
lioans who came within the grasp nf the
assessors nd . collectors, are beginning to
get tired of reading papers that only
advise them to vole' the mpney n out of
their pockets and into the pockets of et
empled capitalists. This is a most, en
oouraglqg slgn for nothing will do ss
so much good as a general olroalatioa of
good Dem oo ratio papers..,. This -: is, well
understood by the Radicals', who have
sought in every possible way to prevent
the people from reading anything but
