Congratulatory Address of
the Democratic Executive
Committee.
DEMOCRATIC COM'EE. EX'TIVE
COLUMBUS, April 11, 1867.
Democrats of Ohio.: We eongratu
late you upon tbeoheering political iodic
oatiofis. Our party, as it were, has
passed through a long, dark political
night so long and so dark that many
have despaired of the dawning of day ;
but at last the eight is passing away, and
a ray of light breaks through the thick
darkness eastward. In New Hampshire
the Republican majority has fallen off.
Connecticut unfurls the Constitution and
records a decisive majority for the De
mocracy giving to. the democratic can
didates on tho State ticket a majority of
about one tbousond, electing three out
of the four candidates for Congress,
and causing the Legislature : to stand :
Senate, 11 Republicans and 10 Demo
crats ; House, 127 Republicans' and 117
Democrats, At the spiing election in
1862, preceding the fall eleotion wherein
the Democracy carried Ohio, Pennsylva
nia, New York, Indiana, Illinois, New
Jersey and Delaware, Connecticut gave
the Republican candidate for Governor
amajoiVy of nine thoutand. The Sen
ate was a unit against tne JJamocrats and
the House stood: Republicans 171';
Democrats 66 ; being a Republican ma
jority of 146 on joint ballot, against a
majority of only 11 on joint ballot bow.
By reference ' and comparison, ve find
the spring elections this yeaf in New
York, Pennsylvania, Nev JerBy, Indf
ana and particularly in Ohio, are as, much
.of an improvement on the epring elee'
tions in these States in 1862, as was the
eleotion in ConReotiont on the 1st in
stant an improvement on the result in
that Stale iu 1862, ; in the fall of which
year the Democratic party triumphed so
grandly. ,' ," ' ' ;
We herein recognize cause for ooni
gratutation, and ah iosentive that should
spur Democrats' everywhere to the most
energetic effort. It our information is
not faulty, continuously for fourteen
years did the Democracy of Connecticut
encounter defeat at the polls; but, sot
daunted, believiog in the righteousness
of their cause, they fought on and they
now find their reward in a triumphant
victory. Xhev bad to encounter despe
rate antagonism intellect, money and
intemperate appeals to passion and prej
udice. They have overcome an W hat
the. Democracy of Connecticut did the
Democracy of other States can do through
the same dauntless and persistent eSort.
You, the Democrats of Ohio, oan do it.
You have not suffered exclusion from
power in tbe State for the last fourteen
years, as did the' Domooracy of Connec
ticut. You carried the State in 1862 by
a majority ranging from five to over seven
thousand, although at the preoeding State
eleotion you were defeated by a majority
of 55.203vour aezreeate vote in tne
State bsing only 157,794, whereas "the
Republican aggregate ' vote In ' tho Stale
was 2U6,SJ97. The very next year your
vote for Sooretary of State was 184,332
sa at,, knrt it j .
an, moreaee ot azpaz on ma preceding
year, whereas the Republican vote for
Secretary of State was 178,741 a falling
off of U8.Z56, atf compared witn tne vote
of the preoeding yean ' Tbe Republican
majority in this State last fall on Secre
tary of State1 wail' 42,696 -12,507. Jess
than it was against you in 1861, and yet
you carried the State at the ensuing eleor
tion trivmpoantly1 We cite these votes
to enoourage and stimulate you to an ao
live co-operation1 with us in the effort to
carry tbe State. Eved did not the result
of the eleotion in Connecticut and at the
In'anioioat eleotions ; elsewhere, 'oid 'us

VVa therefore, beseeoh vou, one nod ;
eo to direct your labors as to bring about
this results It will require) work hard,
uoCeasiDg work, from now untill tbo eleo
tion. ' Could a vote be taken to-morrow

wbelxingly defeated. The advooates of
that measure, and they include all the
leaders and organs of, the .Republican
party intend to bring into requisition
every oonoeivablo agency to secure its
adoption. To be defeated it must be
fought with the same ceaseless energy
and stubbornness. Every man who is
oppoped to the establishment of aft equal
ity of the White and Black races in this
State, end to the dipfranchineroent of
'those soldiers who did faithtui service
throughout the actual oontinuai-oe of the
'war; bat who returned borne before re-
ceiving an official dieoharge, must now be
enlisted. To this end, organize clubs in
every township in 'the State, disseminate
Democratic journals as extensively as
possible, as well ay such publications as
treat scientifically and impartially upon
tbe two races. . ..
Again we would congratulate you up
on tbe cheering indications for Demo
cratic success in tbe fall, and urge upon
you tne importance ot immediately io
Btituting such measures as will insuro it

A daiunq attempt at highway robbery
was made in Bellevue on Saturday even-
ing last, says ms jcivuiuuh iucoocugci,
iVlr: lieiter. tbe proprietor ot me exten
sive tannery at that place, was on his way
to his residence from the business part of
the' town.' Before he arrived at his house
he heard some person on the sidewalk be
hind bird ''walking' very ; rapidly. Just
as the person came up to him he stepped
to one side, and as lie did so, the villain
struck with a bludgeon, the blow falling
noon the back of the head 'and neck of
Mr. Leiter.'Mr. Leitef, Although some,
what- stunned, did not fall, 'and immedi
ately confronted hi assailant, who, seeing
he had failed took to his heels. When
he struck the olub fliw out of his hands
and WaS captured bjr Mr. -'lieiter. ' 'It is

Wuo do you suppose said it ?
, No she was very boautiful, with her
cheeks of, rosy hue, and the curling au
burn treBsea that the wind sports gallant'
ly; but. she did not say it. Not that
bright creature, by wbosa Bide stands a
lover, looking so tenderly in those glorious--eyes
; nor yet tbe dimpled babe.
&ithierab jace,lifted to tbe more ma
ture but not less innocent sweet features,
with the holy light of mother glorifying
every smile.
Then who did you suppose said it t
Wrocg sgain. Not that newly wed,
ded husband, whose home for a few fleet
ing months he has aptly called heaveo
full of smiles and tenderness, and oft
repeated vows flitted like birds of para
dise in rainbow plumage where a preN
ty wbite-robed being, with girlish, ma
tronly air, glides about tbe neat kitchen,
making with her own hands the snowy
bread. Where, when the odious shop ti
closed, be can come home with bounding
heart, and, Bitting with her bands in bis,
rove with a pair of brown eyes over his
Dais, every littlo while stooping to snatoh
a kis from the red lips so close to his
oheek1 Although he wbispera many
times of love, jot this 'I love you' has
natbcoo spoken thon nud there.
A tired woman Bits hushing to sleep
hei nestling babe. Beauty once made
thit lace radiant, perhaps, but all that
beauty is gone now. The blue eye is
din and faded tbe whole expression is
eotrowfal the palo brow covered with
pab linos of care. Pcrhapp, with that
far-off look of hers, the sees threo little
proves, green with as many summers.
Her home is very bumble all day she
has toiled, and tho faiutiog spirit almost
surrenders to fa'igue, tbo downcast eyes
trsmbling in tears she is bo woary.
And every nerve tingles when the boys
ome hungry from echool. Bomo with
reeping and tales of sorrow that moth
en must hear. And after they are hush
ed with kisses or chiding, it is time to
get supper for. seven hungry mouths,
and then the accustomed, never ending
routite of putting away and clearing up,
till tha worn out creature wonders with
a sigh if there really will ever come
rest to her an eternal rest.
At last her weary limbs in tho old
corier rockiue chair. The babe, whose
evc close fitfully to a low lullaby, liei in
bis father' lap. Ho is a plain man, that
father, with an hone3t face and great
heart, that would, if he could take in all
the care and sorrow of the housohold,
Tbe babe Bleeps. With a rude gentle
ness to lays it on its mother's bosom,
and ai the ruddy fire-light plays over hor
oara worn features, he lookB upon her
eyes suddenly grown lustrous and beau
tiful. Ho lifts his great hand softly till
it rests on her shoulder, as be says :
'I love you, dear Mary.'
Ibw the poof heart leaps into love,
light and rest ! How vanish the caics
that trod upon her very soul 1 She no
more remembers the toilsome washing ;
she rtfleots not that the pretty bake, with
its pink, flushed cheek against her breast
has worn her patience threadbare with
its constant tears and unrest. She for
gets that tho broth was burned, that the
children teased her, that the lino broke,
and that every limb in her frame ached.
What were these in comparison with
tbe steadfast love that had burned lor
eightem years in the Bunlight of happi
noss, through the obuds of dispair, when
beauty made her winning, and when the
ohara of lovliness , was gone, and the
freehnes of her youth departed, forover.
What cared aho fur aught outside her
home, tbbueh she had many sorrows.
while euch words thrilled her whole be
ing?
I love you, dear Mary?'
1 Ah I you long married husbands, who
exact every attention as a duty, how
mush would it cost you to make your
home thus beautiful with all its oates ?
I tell you one word of love will loosen
great burdens from the shoulders of the
toiling woman you call wife. Try it.
Go home some night, and look upon her
with' eyes of long ago. , For one little
monent think how groat trials she took
into her heart when she married you.
Thea tenderly clasp her band, as Bhe
looks with wonder-opened eyes, say to
her in a l Da steady voice, not care
lessly or sportively, but earnestly ,
4I love you.' ; Y

We know not the author of the
fol-
lowing, but it is very beautiful :
Nature will be reported. All thiogs
are engaged in writing their own history.
The pluni and pebble go attendod by
their owe shadow. Tbe rock loaves in
scratches on tbe mountain side, tbe river
its bed in the soil, tha animal leaves
bone icrthe stratum, the faro and the leaf
their modest epitaph in tbe coal. Tbe
tailing drop makes its epitaph in the sand
or Etone; not a toot&tcp in tbe snow or
along the ground, but prints its charac
ters more or less lasting, a map .of its
march. every aot ot man inscribes itself
on tbo memories of its fellow?, and in
his own face. The air is full of Bound,
tbo sky of tokens; tbo ground is all
memoranda signatures, and every objeot
is covered over with hints which speak
to the intelligent.
JQ A new mods of computing inter
est on any number of dollars at six per
cent, appears very simple Multiply any
given number by the number of days
of interest desired, separate tte tight
band figure, and divtdo by six ; the re
sult is the true interest of auch sum for
such number of days, at six per cent.
This rule is simpie and bo true according
to all business usageB, that every banker,
broker, merchant or clerk Eboum post it
up for reforeoco and use. TLo. e being
no such a thing as a fractioa in it. there
is scarcely any liability to err or mistake.

Welding Iron by II ydbaclic Press
ure. If iron is welded by tbe hammer,
the internal portions are imperfectly act"
cd on by the blow, and more or less un
soundness at the center is the neoessary
rule. This imperfection ii found to bo
removed by the use of the- hydraulic
press. When tho portions to be joined
are, at a white beat, plaoed lotween tho
piston and top ' of tbe press ; tbey are
easily kneaded together, as it were; aod
as soon as the joint is brought down to
the proper thickness the operation is
stopped. Joints made in this way are
found to be perfectly sound throughout.
Life in the Western Gold
Regions.
A letter from Helena City, Monta
na, gives the following account of life in
that vicinity :
The writer says lie has bad it prelty
rough since leaving the eastern States,
but he bos managed to got hold of some
good mining ground, and thinks be shall
'make a raise.' He expresses himself
we'l satisfied with tbe country, Bays it is
better than he expected to find it, and
thinks it a good country lor young man
for the next ten years. He says the
country is yet in its infancy, but that
Helens, which is less tlilift two yearB old,
now contains eight thousand inhabitants.
It is a fast place, peopled with almost
every kiad of people Indians, Ameri
cans, Dutchmen, Irishmen, Frenob, Eng
lish, Mexicans, Spanish, negroes, and
John Chinaman, or, as the miners call
him, 'the Washee man.'
Those different kinds of people are en
gaged in every oonceivable kind of bust,
nesa. Women are very soarce and dear.
There was fine sleighing when the 1 letter
was written. The prioe, in the height of
the season, $10 per hour for horse and
sleigh. They turn out gay rigs there
sleighs costing from $250 to SoOO and
horses to match.' Board is from 612 to
$20 per week ; single meal3 one dollar;
pies, 50e. each ; wages, 5 to 8 per day.
It takes 81 25 in greenbacks to buy $1
'dust.' The retail' market is quoted as
follows: Potatoes 4c. to oo. por pound;
onions, 25c. ; cabbage, ' 20c. ; turnips,
oo. to 10o.; sugar, 40o. Bu. ; bams, 4Do.
to 50c; heefstake, 15c; to 20o. (cheap as
Wheoling. In tbe wholesale market,
flour is quoted from 814 down to $8, ao,
cording to brands St. Louis being dears
est and' Salt Lake cheapest.' "Eggs are
from $1 25 to $1.75 per dozen the first
for Salt Lake or 'Morman' eggs, and the
latter for 'Ranch.' Butter is from 75o.
to $1.25; brick, $30 per 'M.'; lumber
from 6c. to 76. per foot, and and corn
meal' $12.50 per saok of 100 lbs.
People pay dear for their little luxuo
ries in Montana, (6Uoh as lager beer (or
slop) acd strychnine whisky, 25 cents a
glass.' But cigars are played out here ;
the pipe is tho only solace.
' tSf The wife of it man living out west
having recently died, the usual preparai
tions were made, and when, at last, the

Tr people planting orchards or shade
trees would i;ive strict orders to mark
the north side of trees with red chalk
before tbey are taken up, and when set
out to have the tree pur in tbe ground
with it corth side to the north, in its
natural position, a larger proportion
would livo. Iguoriag this law of na
ture is the causo of so many transplant
ed trees dying. If the north 'side is ex
posed to the south, the heat of the auc
is too great for that side of the treo to
b'ar, and, therefore, it dries up 'and de
