At a meeting of the Democratic State Cen

resolutions were adoptsd: . . ,
1, Resolved, That in the opinion of this
committee a Demooratio Convention of del
egates from all the States should be held
this year, not later than the 4th day of July,
and Louisvillo, Kentucky, is tho most eligible
place for hoMing the same, yet, In our opin

States concur in that day and appoint dele
gates, our Exeoutive Committee shall provide
for the selection of delegates from Ohio,

Speech of Hon. A. J. Swaim.
Hon. A. J. Swaim. Mcmbor of the
9 ,
House of Representatives, from Vinton
County, made the following remarks in
the House laBt weolc, at the time tie bill
relating to the Morgan Raid was under
consideration :
Mb. Speaker: It ia with some de
gree of delicacy that I approach the sub
jeot matter contained in the bill now be
fore this House for consideration, know
ing as 1 do, that it direotly interests but
few members upon this . floor ; but it
nevertheless a question, iur, speaker,
which should claim the attention of every
patriotic member in this House. Every
member. upon;this floor is no donbt ac
quainted with the circumstances which
eave rise to the introduction of this bill.
The causes which gave rise to the intro
duotion of a bill of this character,
transDired at a time in the history of the
country when it was considered that the
sword and the musket were the only
safeguards for the protection of life and
property ; benoe it was tnat we nno peo
ple of the great Statejof Ohio! collectod
together to .'prepare themselves for the
trying oootest.We find, however, that
the contest was not met with an entire
success, and the result wa4, that hundreds
of helpless women .and children were
plundered of their provisions, and their
property stolen and carried off. ' This
state ot affairs oould have been greatly
prevented, had U , not boon th nwly
every able bodied man in the counties
through which . me Morgan raw wan
made, had been ordered from their homes
by the authority of the State, or had
enlisted in the service ot the uoverni
ment. . .
There are 'other facts connected with
this question, Mr. Speaker which justly
entitle these people, in my opinion, to
ask the State of Ohio to reimburse them
for their property which was connscatea
during the progress of the Morgan raid.
It is well known that all the property
that was taken from private indiuiduals,
not only by tho Confederate forces, but
by tie Government troops, at do very
distant day went into the hands of the
Government : and even the tew Ola
hones that were left in the hands
nonr men. which miebt have been
some service to them, were hunted up by
provost-marshals and put into the bands
of the Qoyernment, or appropriated
their own use. These people have not
only tuffared from the loss or their
" a- .fit.
property, bat upon mere pretense oi iur
Government, that it would pay these
claims, have wasted much of their sub
tanca in trvine to collect them.
I fiad. Mr. Speaker, in examining the
r.nnrt . nf the eommissioners who were
iDDointed by the authority of the Legis
lature to investigate claims growing ont
of the Morgan raid, that they have al
lowed claims to the amount of five
hundred and seventy-six thousaod two

Meeting of the Democratic State
Cewibal Committee. There was
meeting of the Demooratio Stato Central
flommittda in this oitv yesterday. En
couraging word was brought from
parts of the State as to the determina
tion of the Demooratio party to poll
large vote at the ensuing fall eleotiou.
It was the opinion of the Committee that
there should be a National Democratic
Convention held this year, not later than
the 4th of July, but not so early as the
7th of May. Other matters were talked
over pertaining to the welfare of tbc
country, when the Committee adjourned.

'' Think op It. The people of the
Slate of Ohio last year paid over seventy
million dollars United States and- State
taxes. The highest amount ever expen
ded in carrying on the National Govern
ment under Demooratio rule was about
seventy-five, million dollars. . So it
be seen that Ohio alone pays nearly
much tax now under Radioal rule as
United States did under a Democratic
dminietratluu. Yet theao omo Rada
tell us we are a prosperous people and
can afford to psy aigh taxes. Twenty,

[Communicated. Who Stole the Broad-Ax at
McArthur Station.
Mr. Editob : About the 25th , of
Deoember last, there was a broad-ax
stolen from tho Station house at MoAr-
Statioo, whioh had been sent by express
from llamden, 0., to Mr. James Glenn.
Not long since Mr. Glenn, by some oir
numstanoo. was lod to suspioion one
William 2. Wickline as bomg tba tniet.
Evidenod accumulating against Wickline,
Glenn oonoluded to visit the resldonce of
said centleman (he being absent, from
bouie at tne nme auu oco wuui no uumu

that ''William had sent him tor that
broad-ax." She replied that "Wickline
npw she hid sent it to Soiotoville."
That, of course, was enough for Glenn
villa, eot his ax. paid tha expressage and

Alas, for the imperfections of mankind
Mr. Isamineer, the Agent at MoAr

advice and assistance in the matter. If
Mr, Isaminger had not pushed the matter
ahead as he did. probablv Mr. Uleon
would bava been the looser of a broad ax
