A Woolen Factobt. A person who owns
large and valuable tract of land, through
which the Marietta and Cincinnati Railroad
passes, west of and adjoining the Zaleski
Estate, in Vinton county, authorizes us to
i tale that a site for a Woolen Factory will
ba given free to any party who will build
upon it. It is an excellent place for a Wool
en Factory; about one mile from the Zaleski
Depot of the II. & C. R. R.; and water, coal,
wood, and every thing else necessary for
building and running an establishment of
this kind, being near at hand. We think
there is not a more convenient location in
Ibis county for a Woolon Factory. For fur

The Republican State Convention.
Thk Republican State Convention will
cojvene at Columbus in a fow days.
Nobody knows what it will do, some
predict oae thing, (ome another thing
every body irs anxiously "waiting and
watching" the movements ot the Grand
Army and Great Taxatiou Republioan
Party. No delegates have yet been se
leoted to represent Vinton County in the
great Afrioao Convention. Who will be se
lected ? Will they endorse the proposed
Afrioanizition Amendment to the Con
stitution when they arrive at Columbus?
Will they do as Cheesedom says? We
will let the Ohio Statesman tell what the
Republican Convention will have to do,
and we hope our Republican friends in
Vinton Count; will carefully read it :
"It was a bad piece of work the Re
publican members of tho Legislature did
in botching the Amendment proposing
the Africanization of tbe Constitution of
the Stalo, by patching on to it the dis
franchisement of from twenty to twenty-
four thousand Wbito Eoldiere. All botch
woik is bad; but the worst is Legisla
tive botch work. Left to itself, and run
ning purely on its own merits, the propo
sition to Negroize the Constitution ot (ho
State, would have eocountereed an oppo
sition that would have consigned it to
defeat. It may seem smart to Republi
can politioiaos to say that nothing can
brine; the Negroes down to tbe level of
Democrats, and that the opposition to
Negro Suffrage has it main-spring i,
prejudice on account of the oolor of the
skin and the orispnoss ot the hair. 1 bis
however, does not d;sposo of the fact,
that as a race, in their native land, the
Negroes have made no advancement
whatever in civilization, and in the arts
and soiencei. As illiterate and as bar
rous to-day is Africa as it was centuries
ago. Did (hero exist no other difference
between the White and the Black man
excepting that of color and in the form
alion of the hair, Africa could not now)
be pointed to as a country wnerein civil
ization has not been able to gain and
hold a footing; nor could it be said to
the prejudice of that people that 'Miss
ionary labors are thrown Bway upon
them, because as soon as the Missionaries
are withdrawn, a relapse into barbarism
on the part of those who had been un
der 'Missionary influence, ensues. It
will mightily help the advocates of the
Negroiziog of the State Constitution to
give a reason that shall be perfectly and
satisfactorily explanatory of all thw.
All that we know of the White race, is
lo the effect that it has always been an
aimressive race never satisfied with its
existing condition; but always wrong
and fighting to better that condition,
physically and intellootually. With a
view to aau to nor store oi lnrormauonj"-
EVE plucked the forbidden fruif. A I
Negress would have contented herself'i
with thincs as thev existed in the Gar
den of Eden, just as the Negroes in Af-i
nca are perteotly sati'tio-i with things
tbere as they have existed from the
ginning, mamiesiing no aesire ol lm
provement in anything. What, then.
are we to gain by associating the mem
bers of this race with us in the adminis
tration of the State and Federal Gofem
ments? Will we, through such associa
tion, secure better officer, and, conse
quently, better government ? Will prof
ligacy and wastefulness be brought to an
end ? Some mighty good should certain
ly bo brought in exchange for the
disfranchisement of the twenty or twenty
four thousand Whites.
So far as Ohio is concerned
m uw nivue
Fl A TV m r r rm
ia being done the Negroes
that can be
remedied by making them voters. They
are secured protection in life, liberty and
property, and their voting will not add
to that protection. The White race is
adequate to the task of governing this
country in the way it should be governed.
This being true and undeniably true at
that the proposition to disfranchise
twenty to twenty-four thousand Whites
is a piece of legislative blundering that
is perfectly unaccountable. It is folly
inconceivable. As it stands, it will as
sure the defeat of the Republican Party
overwhelmingly, as it should any party
that would attempt it. Tbe blunder can
be partially retrieved by the Republioan
State Convention pronouncing against
the Amendment as it stands. To pro
nounce against it wiU be tendering an
apology to that twenty or twenty-four
thousand soldiers who did faithful duty
while the war actually lasted ; tut who
are technically deserters because they
took French leave for homo when the
business of War was finished up. Nov
er was there a more outrageous insult
offered to a brave and gallant body of I
men than is offered these men by the
Republican members of the Legislature,
through the Constitutional Amendment,
whereby they are fo be disiranehised,
and a few negroes in the State made vot
ers; and it is as little as the Republican
State ConventioD can do. bv wav of
atonement, to repudiate ana condemn the
whole thing as utterly indefensible." ,

Wool Growers of Vinton County to know
thatsomo of the leading. citizens of Mo
Arthur and vicinity have formed a com
pany for the purpose of introducing into
the county Cashmere Shawl Goats. A
meeting of several of the citizens was
held at Dr. A. Wolf's office, in this plaoe,
on Friday afternoon last, al which we
were present. We saw soma specimens
of the wool, and, also, soma specimens
manufactured from the fleeoe, and have
ao hesitancy in pronouncing it the most
magnificent fabrio we have ever seen.
Silk is really no comparison to the beau
tiful, glossy fleece of these animals. We
are pleased to see our oitizens taking hold
of such an important matter; and we
predict not only a pleajant, but an ex
ceedingly profitable enterprise.
We copy the following from the Lou
isville Industrial Commoroialaud Gazette,
ot a late date :
Shawl Goats for Omo. We have
before alluded to the number of these
animals which were being shipped from
Tonnessee to Ohio. But the number of.
cages, containing these beautiful goats,
which were drayed through our streets
some days ago for Cincinnati, is proba'
the largest which has been made.
On inquiry, we learned that the parties,
Messrs. Ream and Clark, of Ohio, who
purchased largely, a few months ago,
have again ad led to their fiook twelve
thousand dollars worth. ,
Although much has been said - and
written on this subject, a brief history of
this enterprise, yet in its infancy, may
not be out of place at this time. The
first, and probably the only, importation
of ical Cashmere goats ever made to this
country, (if we rely upon Profe. Mapcs,
Goodrich and Johnson, .as veil as that
able naturalist and divine, Bachtnan,)
was by Dr. James B, Davis, of South
Carolina, while in the employ of his
highness, the reigning Snltan of Turkey;
which landed upon our Southern shotos
in 1819; tho largest portion of which,
soon after, fell into the hands of Colonol
R. Williamson, of Sumner county, Teio.
lhis gentleman, at that time, ventured
to pay the almost fabulous prices -at
which they were held; and, with an rn.
ergy that knew no possibility of failare,
he has prosecuted his labors us til the
fact has been established that these anni
malt), for ages confined to the mountains
of Asia, thrive equally well amidst the
snows of Michigan and the sunny plains
of Texas and Mexico, and are now le
ing sought at prices even greater .thn
those which once astonished us, Te
learn from tbe parties purchasing, that
eata of the United Cashmere Company,
(under tbe management ol Gen. Wa G
Harding, of Davidson county, and Col.
probably exeeed those, of any flock
breeders in America bince the war. We

The Negroes, einoo the passage f the

lately made a violent assault on a, female
"abnormal irregularity" near Salem, in
this State. Her cries brought belp, and
the noble "Manhood" was driven away.

What Were the United States of
America—And What are They
Now?
What a mighty oliange has tht progress of
power effected on this vast continent of ours?
Four oenturies have not elapsed since Colum
bus discovered the New World. Almost eter
nal and majestio forests Anoovered a great
portion of the surface of tbe newly discov
ered land its noble Rivera were only navi
gated by the beardless Indian, in his frail
canoe, and the Red Man, with "uninterrupt
ed mind," was monaroh ef all he surveyed.
Who. that, thought that there would ever b
seen the mighty improvements in the new
land, which have sinoe been seen by us?
Cities, Towns, and Villages, with their in
dustrious and intelligent inhabitants, once
spread an air of refinement and comfort
around them. First, Canals, and seoond
Railroads in themselves monuments of the
ingenuity and perseverance of man now in
toned different parts of the country, and
facilitate the transmission of the produce of
the land. The vast "hunting-grouad" has
been greatly, reduced and converted into
beautiful farms; and the population of for
eign nations have received the superabund
ance of the American soil, in exchange for
the respective products of their different
olimatoi, From a few settlers, driven by
persecution from their native homes, a great
and powerful nation had arose in the U.hted
States, whoss energies and industry were
without a parallel, and, whose spirit
commanded the envy and admiration of
Europe, and became an asylum for the
oppressed and misgoverned of all "Princi
palities aad Powers," From whenoe arose
those p.leasing developments of tbe faculties
of man? What gave birth to that clear and
brilliant light which enabled every individ
ual to view things through their jutt and
true medium? The answer comes boldly, in
reply to the inquirj of every true American
citizen: ihat it was that principle implanted
in him by the Great and Wise Ruler the
natural detirt and inalienable right of a free people.
The colonists of Qreat Britain were regard
ed as more "hewers of wood and drawers
of water" the bond-servants of a proud
and unrelenting aristocracy their King
ruled them with a rod of iron, till oppression
had filled its cup, the draught of which was
too great for human endurance.
' Resistance beoame their duty; an 1 how
inflexibly that resistance was maintained
with what constancy a Washington con
ducted his band of devoted and heroic patri
ots through a long and perilous campaign
the glory which marked its termination
and the last solemn act of 'that' grett and
victorious chief, history has well recounted
with pride Mey form the : brightest and
most instructive lessons of our country,
Tho right of Kings lo sway over the
miods and bodies of their subjects was
exploded; and a lesson of self-govern,
ment was presented to the 'world, which
bad the effect of pnducing a most salu
tary lbflueoce, Tho free institutions of
America was then fait, and the stability
of tho thrones of Europe was made the
euko. Men would not then so easily
permit themselves to ba kept in leading
strings as now. Independence of thought
a deep and critical examination into
the aors and policy of the government
and a watchful jealousy of tho exercise
of power, were among the important
signs of the times.
An impressive contrast to the United
States of Amerioa was presented by Itally
Spain, Portugal and Other European
dominions. Tbe ''Book of Knowledge"
was then a closed volume the pjoplo
were enveloped in the most gross dark
oets; ignorance and crime debased
their mind, and an unsparing tyranny
reigned triumphant. Amerioa then in
infancy, was a weaken nd helpless gov
eminent, yet independents people proud
of their liberty of their- independent
government, and the fair prospect that
wsb by thorn entertained, of making the
American government one of tbe most
powerful of all nations, and so might it
have been, bad the people continued in
the same spirit ot fratoroal peace, and
love,-as that upon which their improve
medts in America started out npon.
"The lives of our forefathers, the he
roes of America," are proper studies for
the youth of Amerioa. It is particularly
so with the men of the Revolutionary
era. A. general charaoter. marks the
career of those noble-men. .. .
The great actors in the scenes of the
revolution, were not allways, brilliant,
though many - of them possessed, more
talents, but they were almost without ex
ception honest and truthful, and ardently
uevoiea 10 meir country.
Ibe world has never witnessed a more
sinoere bedy of patriots of equal single
ness oi parpyso, ana simplicity or means
and eBds, then were the fathers in-, the
revolutionary struggle for their indepen
dence. r There was little mystery about
any of them. The - children ': of honest
parents, they grew up,' moBtly In rural
occupations, good youths ' .hard v." dear
sighted, capable of endurance, and with
tne win to endure and suiter in the de
fence of their rights and in the defence
of their independence,
Their, plain, good sense, their fruealitv
and honesty, virtues, their unrewarded
valor, as they left their firesides to go
forth to tht eamp and npon the ocean,
to Senates and battlefields, to National
counoiis and to foreign courts, to plead
with eloquence, to fight with endurance,
to persevere oaimiy and resolutely to the
end, in a painful and protraoted struggle
which had no reward; but liberty who
does not recognize these as the character-
istio virtues of our Revolutionary sires,
So firmly were the people united together,
tnatwnen tni crown-haad .ottered a re
ward of five hundred pounds together
with a pordoo, should an accomplice be
the informant for the burning of the
tesael Gaspee. Although a Urge num.
I
ber were oouoeroed in the affair yet
none would take the prize, and the com
missioners appointed to investigate the
miltflTS wprn eomnelled to return . the
, . .1
the accounts to tho ministry with no evt
dence, and here the matter ended upon
the Maiestv's law. Again the destrnc
tion of the tea in tbe Boston Harbor, and
at the reception of the news of the mfai
nous "stamp act." JNobly ana nrmiy
these patriots stood together independent
ot the kingly power.
One illustrious exemplar among them
who takes procedonoe of all others, more
single, it possible in nis aims, more in
flexible in bis love ot justice, purer in
his morals and manners, more self'.sacri-
fioin fur he had more to sacrifice tbe
calmest, most persistent of all George
Washington. But, as he was a man of
the times, as well as a man for the times,
others, shared these excellences, though
their oharaoters and fortunes may not
have been so well oommiogled. But as
Washington was a man of many friends,
tbey of necesnty, partook of his virtues,
for that oonfidenoe was never reposed , in
the unworthy,
What was then true in those men of
that era, should have
been the goneral
oharaoteristio of Amerioao
greatness
sinoe. uat in toe multiplication oi puu
lio men with the growh of the country,
. . ... ,,. ... r L
and the creation of new - spheres ot em
ployment involving vast responsibilities,
it is reasonable to suppose that opportu
nities for censure should not sometimes
arise. - Prosneritv has proved a severer
test of oharacter to tbe government than
adversity. We have learned the faor, that
it is more difficult to proserve the govern
ment than to found it.
For many years the administration of
the government was oonduoted with tne
self-same spirit of veneratiin and love
of the government, a it was fought for
in the revolutionary war, and the world
had written the history of the Represent
ative Men of Amerioa, as being of i
high standard of moral excellence.
The constant supervision and sifting tf
of our political systom rendered it al
most impossible, when the heart of the
Nation was sound, that its high offioers,
its Presidents and Governors of State, its
Judges of the Supreme Court, its mem
bers of the Cabinet, its leading represent
talives abroad, its great authors, should
not be men of moral excellence as well
as distinguished ability.
It has been well remarked, that when
this ceases to be the one, that bur great
men will no longer afford topics for pop
ular biography. The story of their livos
will no longer give pleasure to the inge
nious reader. It .will then no longer
delight the youth of the nation. , "' ,
Hive we lived to see that sad faot
with us existing ? How fur are we to
day from the patriots rule of mnral cod
duot? of love of country ? of union
existing in our midst? ,
The answer iq engraved not only upon
our hearts, but upon our every eounten1
ance. Loyally, a full sister to monarohy
and ot monarchal doscent frowns upon1
all that speak against her, just as did the
crown-head, frown upon the revolution
ary fathers. . i
Liyalty ha become a feotuoo of the
United States Government, to tne same
extent of that use of the term . in the
English Parliament. Hundreds of men
have lofUhoir lives for merely speaking
against the , President, or some of his
officers, or against eoioe of his'"7w
dixit" or proclamations. Hundreds of
men Tost their lives for the samo offense?

.Ma; Editor: In closing, my communica
tion, whioh you printed for me two weeks
ago, I promised to write again soon if I did
not get a Post Office. I have not yet been 10
lucky as t,o get an offioe indeed but few "un
protected women" ever get offices in Vinton
County.' I wish to correct a mistake whioh
I made In my communication two- weoks ago.
lha bad bill I spoke of was a twenty dollar
bill iustead of a ten; and Bralten, as I ela
ted, refused to give the woman any more
than one-half of the twenty dollars. Besides,
when asked, how much be would charge, he
said nothing much, and tell the boys to
bring a load of wood some time it will all
be right. The load of wood was taken to
him. He took the wood and $10 for ask
ing a man to give him a good bill for a bad
one. Bratton, the notorious friend to un
protected women, practices more of this
kind, of stealing and highway robbery than
law he understands that better than law.
He does not call it stealing' and robbery 0
no he calls - it cxhorbitant charges. The
poor woman who had ten dollars taken from
her thinks it was an exhorbitant charge
indeed.
1 will write again in a short time, and
let the good readers of the Enquirer know
bow Bratton collects back pay, bounty, and
so on, for some of the poor, unprotected
soldiers' wives and widow.
