Release of Jefferson Davis
on Bail
Afteb nearly, or quite, two years of
imprisonment, without a trial, or any
prospect oi any, Mr. Davis has at length
been released on bail, a prominent Had
leal editor, Mr. Horace Greeley, going as
one or bis securities. 1 his, we presume,
fs a virtual end of the whole matter, for
we esnnot believe that tho prosecution
will be pressed any further.- We con
uratulate the country opoo ah set which
relieves it, io tho estimation of the world,
of the foul stigma of punishing a man to
whom it would neither grant a trial nor
a release. Ia thip, all sense of jasiioe
was outfaced, and a merited stigma of
dishonor brought opoa the Government.
Long ago it was perceived that no good
whatever could be effected by the trial
and punishment ef the great leader, who
acted es the head of eleven' sovereign
States, in their attempt to sever the ties
which bound them to their twenty five
associates.- What he did wss not indi

of ZaLeskl.
BY SOME OF 'EM,
CHAPTER I.
J; Forasmuch as many have taken in
hand to set forth, in order, a declaration ol
those things which are truly believed among
us, even as they delivered them unto us, who,
from the beeinulnz. were eye-witnesses of
the thing that were done: it seemed good
unto us, also, .having ha I perfect under
standing of some of the things therein done
from the very first, to write unto you, our
fellow-citixens, ' that yeu may know the
oertainty of those things whereof ye have
beard. I
2. It came to pass that in tho year of our
Lord about one thousand eight hundred and
fifty-four, that some very enterprising men
came over from England to America, and,
having many poundt of their British gold
when they landed, even in the free and happy
land of Amerioa. .
t. And it oame to pass that they all did
agree within themselves to build a oity, and
the name thereof should be Zaleski.
4. And it same to pais that after these same
men had made many fruitless endeavors
locate a piece of land, whereof they might
build a oity, that they did finally agree among
themselves that they would build their eity
upon a stream of water, the better to faaill
tate the transportation of the many articles
whloh these mighty mea may make, notwith
standing there was a Railroad line then up
on the banks of the stream, which was and
is even unto this day, balled Big Raccoon,
because mighty and great are its waters.
6. After they had agreed among them
selves to build their city, and had even be
gan to survey their city lands, there arose a
dispute among them.
6. And some reasoned among themselves,
and said: "The plains of this mighty stream
are sufficient for our oity."
7, And then others reasoned among them
selves, and said: "This will not do; for
though the plains of this stream are large
and very rioh along . its entire length and
bredth, yet peradventnre the waters thereof
in the Spring and Fall seasons of the year
may overflow our oity, and the people thore
of be arowned, and our enterprise prove a
failure. We had better, therefore, in our
icue judgment, establish the oity upon the
hills and rocks."
8. And when they had thus reasoned
among themselves, all of one aocord, said:
'So mote it be." And it was even so:
. 9. And, again, it cacae to pass that when
they had laid off the bounds of the city,
they began to build and to make many fine
houses and . business places, even for the
workers of wo od and iron. And when they
hod all with one accord assembled then
selves together, they reasoned among them
selves, and 'said; "It must needs be that we
have a Ruler, whose chief business it shall
be to give all orders, and whatsoever he
sballsay.unto the people, that they must do."
10. And when tbey had made unto them
selves a Ruler, who, some were wickedly dis
posed to call "Lobd," he appointed under
him certain parsens who were often oalled,(by
the Buckeyes and Irish who eftea take the
name of British officers in vain,) 1 Captains"
and "Majors," whose chief business it was
to do as their "Lord," so called, directed
them in all things.
11. And it came to pass that their city
grew and prospered for the space of about
two years, and even the people of the coun
try around about began to go thence to
trade, when the inhabitants of the city again
assembled with one acoord and at one
place, even the "Mansion House," and there
sung a l'saim. Ana the Kuler thereof said
unto his "Uaptains" and "Majors:" "Cheat
tt Zaleski I Truly, the it great 1 1 Oh, "a
Mionrx city I II"
12. And the ''Captains" and "Majors"
said: "Bo mote it be even a great citvl "
13. And again it came to pass, that
after the space of about five years, their
city well nigh came to nanght. and the
Chief Ruler thereof had to announce to
the people, and to his officers, that thr
"pounds otgold" had all become, exhaus
ted, and they had not wherewith to con
tinue the oity.
14. And it oame to pass that thev
assemDiea togeiuer, ana wnen tney bad
reasoned among themselves, they said
unto themselves, that they would send
back to their Old Countrv and brineran.
other JLloier, even ranch, whose sur
name is UE5ELTINE; and thev all ana
wered, and said : u8o mote U be."
ID. And It came to pass, that whon
Francis had arrived, in about the vear
our Jjord ibuv, mat be was chosen
Ruler, of all that oity ; and when he had
lully taken charge o? all that pertained
the city, that be appointed unto him
elf. his Uaptains and Captains over Can
tains, and began to build his city, and
improve tne streets tnereor, and offer
many and great bargains unto the peo
pie, and the fame of the eity spread
tbrongnont an tne una.
16 And it then came to pass that
many ot the inhabitants of the land went
unto the city, and bonght of the croo-
erty thereof; and they built in the midst
the eity many valuable buildings, un.
the bounds thereof spread thronghout
the billf, nd even unto the moun
tains thoreof.. I
17. And again it eame to pass, that
when tho city bad crown so lares, and
innumerable host of inhabitants therer
that they reasoned aaconc themselves
and said : "Truly this fs great oity,
and by right the county buildings, even

13. And great fears were entertained
many citizens of the land on aocount
thereof; i.;-;--r. i; ",, ... .....
19. And it eame to pass in the six
year of the reign of the Kuler ' of the
oity. that one Wiixiav, whoso surname
HACGAHAN, ana a itvoruo si ins peo
pie of that city, set himself to work, and!
procured by the voice of the people, tbe!
authority to levy tne sum oi seven tnou-i
sand dollais, for the purpose of building
unto toomselves a "Sobool House," for
the benefit of the rising generation, and
that of the oity.
20. And it oame to pass that when tho
Ruler of the city " learned thid faot,
be beoame sorely vexed, and reasoning
with himself, he ordered that this ihould
not be; and thereupon be notified all of
his tenants that he would surely rai' the
rents upon them.
221. And ne being still sorely vexed
at William and his oonstitueots, re
solves to bring about and enforce suob
measures as that William and his friends
will have to build the "Sobool Houae"
themselves, or else abandon the project,
22. And it came to pass, that as the
Chief Ruler was versed much in "law,"
and with the sanction ot his legal advi
sers, he gave notice by prnolamatioo,
'unto all whom it may concern," that he
would impound any and all etook of
whatsoever kind, he may Gad running kt
large upon tne "rablio Highways.
23. And it again eame to pass, that
in order to carry out this proclamation,
the Chief Ruler must make all the neo
essary . arrangements within hia power ;
snd thereupon be built a pound, tasb
ioned like unto an "Eoeliah Pound,"
and appointed under him one Essex, as
uLhw riq Driver:' whose surname is
Lation.
24. And it came to pass, that when
he had began his labors very early Io the
morning, that he appointed unto himself
oertam young lads, whose business it was
to go around and about throughout all
the city, and the lands of their estate,
and 1 upon the pnblio highway, and
whatsoever stook of any kind, that they
bring the same unto bim, the "Uhiof rig
Driver.'
25. And it came to pass that upon tho
evening of the first day of the reign of
Essex, that the lads brought many of the
peoples' stock unto him, and he lm
pounded all of their property. ..
26. And it oame to pa6s, that on the
morning of the seoood day of the reign
of Essex, whose surname is Laytoo, and
beiog the fifth mouth of the year, .that
the inhabitants of tbat oity beoame very
muoh enraged, and grew wroth, and were
sorely vexed.
27. And it came to pas, that they
assembled together, and reasoned among
themselves, and said : "What shall we
do?" And they, fearing tho terror of
their Chief Rulers, and still reasoning
among themselves,, saying : "It may be
belter for us to go and pay for our stook,
and bring them home with us;" and
tbat day, through the working of the
English Pound, there fell into the bands
of tho Chief Rulers, many dollars of the
poor peoples' money, even that of the
Irish and tbe Jiuckeyes.
23. Aiad it came to pass, that among
the rest of the unfortunate poor people,
the property of one Egbert, whose
surname is Bowen, fell into the hands oi
the Chief Rulers, which tbey forthwith
put into the Pound.
29. And it cauie to pass, that Egbort,
upon hearing of his property being im
pounded in tbe English Pound, he did
not grow'angry or Beem vexed, but con
trary to the reasonings of his neighbors.
and in the more calm and sober thought
of his judgment, forthwith went into the
Englieh Pound, and did not so muoh as
ask permission ot tbe KuIerB, and re
leased his property by tbe power of
might, and did not so muoh ss leave
standing the walls of the New English
Pound as witnesses against him.
30. Thus did Egbert, boldly and
without fear of the "Chief Rulers" re
move from the Iron grasp of English
lyranny, his own lawful property to his
own peaceable possession and to his own
premises, from which they bad been ta
ken. 31. And it oame to pass, that after
all this had been done, certain of the
Rulers assembled together and beld a
"counsel of warfare," and it so happened,
that the Chief Rulers, determined with
in tnemselves, mat , tney would arrest
Egbort and Uourt Marshal him, for thus
setting at defiance all the rule snd : au
thority of the Chief Rulers.
32. And afterwards it oame to pass,
that when the inhabitants of the oity
heard the news thereof, how that 'Egbert
had conquered the New English Pound,
and the British Lion, they assembled to
gether; and after they had reasoned
among themselves, they said that he had
done noblt, in that he had rescued Lis
property, and taken it home In deSanee

The Result in Ohio.
The Democratio ticket, headed by Al
len G. Tburmao, one of the ablest states
men and jurists in the United States,
will be elected this fall. The profligaoy,
disnonesty ana corruption of the office
holders now m power would and ought
to destroy any party. A financial press
ure, the neoessary result of the Radioal
financial polioy. and wbioh must come,
OI.. .ft '
sooner or later, is Deing leic Dy tne peo
ple. Our taxes havo grown under Radi
oal ru'e, from almost nothing, until they
are almost three times as great, per head,
as tney are in Ureal Britain. The lux
ury of Radioal rule oau not be boroe
longor by the people.
Io addition to all this, tbe Radicals
propose to strike tbe word white from
our Stato Constitution, thereby hoping to
make tbe negro a white man. They pro
pose to ameBd not only the Constitution,
but also the works, of the Almighty.
For years a majority of tbe voters in the
Republican party have been voting the
ticket beoause they could not be made to
believe that that party would ever favor
negro suffrage and equality ia this State.
That question is no longer one of specu
lation, but is a palpeble faot. The ques
tion is submitted to the people for their
decision by these leaders of the Radi
cals, and they claim that they can "whip
in" nearly all who have heretofore voted
with them. This oannot 'be done. VVe
admit that very many Republicans who
now say they will not vote for the amend
ment, will be "whipped in" to. support
the measures under tho whips of party
drill. But we know many others who
will not be whipped io, under any cir
oumstanoeB. . They will not ba soared
when told that they are voting with
"Copperheads and ButternutB." There
are thousands of this kind.
Without the negro question beiog in
our politics this year, in our opinion, the
Dcmooiatio ticket would have boen eleo-
'ted.
. With the snbmission of tbe amend
ment proposing to enfranchise the ne
groes and disfranchise thousands of wor
thy and honorable soldiers, who (ought
their three and four years in the army,
but who are marked as deserters because
they came home after the war was over
but before they reoeived their discharges,
we think there is no doubt of sucoess.
In addition to the class above referred to
three-fourths of those who are deserters
and skedadlers voted the Republican
ticket, and they and their friends will not
vote to disfranchise then;. Tbo Adju
tant General's books show over 27,000
deserters of Ohio soldiers. Tbe highest
army vote the Democratic party reoeived
was only about 4,000. Counting these
all among the deserters (while we don't
believe ono of tbem should be), would
leave 23,000 Republican deserters. Ta
king last year's vote as a basis, 23,000
voters taken from tbe Republican and
put on the Democratio vote, would oarry
tbe state tor the Democracy by nearly
4,000 majority. XJut trom past mdica

Tan Latest Fashions. Since the
invention and successful introduction of
the Celebrated Duplex Elliptic (or doub
le) Spring Skirt, by J. W. Bradley of
New York, the ladies throughout the
oountry have given op the idea of dis
carding tho fashion of woaring hoop
skirts on aooount of tne peculiar and
graceful manner in whloh the Duplex
Skirts adapt themselves to every exigency
and emergency. So generally acceptable
have these Skirts become tbat the ladies
regard them as a special favorite, in view
of the superior flexibility, lightness and
durability combined in tbeir Manufacture.
They also oooaider them a far more eoo
nomioal and . Comfortable Hoop Skirt
than ever has or can be made for Crowd
ed Assemblies, for, the Promenade or
House Dress. Any lady after wearing
one of these Skirts, will nevei afterwards
willingly dispense with their use. Long
experienoe in the manufacture of Hoop
Skirts, has proven to the proprietors of
this invention, that Single Springs will
always retain that stiff, unyielding and
bungling style which has ever character
ised tbem, whereas the Double Spring
Hoop or the Duplex Elliptic, will be
found free from these objections. Not
withstanding the ability of the Manu
facturers, , Messrs. Wests', Bradley and
Cary, to turn out over six thousand Skirts
per day from their large Manufactories in
New York, thry feel obliged to request
all motohants orderiog tbe Duplex Ellip
tic Skirts, o seed their orders a few days
before they are wanted, if possible, as
they are most .constantly oversold some
days ahead.
The Radicals say tho negroes must
be admitted to the privileges of citizon-
ship in order, to ; counterbalance the
foreign houdb who ally themselves
with the rebel Demooraoy. , That is why
in
to
tbe
mg
be
rioh

they want negro suffrage. It is not be
cause they think the negro is entitled to
bat beoause they think he can ba nsed
to element of party sucoess ia voting
dowa the Irish and otoer foreigners who
naturally sympathise with the Democra-
of tbe country. Anything to promote
the oause of "our party," no matter
what the moral or political ettect upon

icalism. ' .
The Dissolution of the Republican
Party.
We again call attention to the follow,
ing extract trom the letter of Wendell
Phillips to The New York Anti-Slavery
Standard, whioh letter we published jesi
lerdaj : ;.-.; .-. v ; -
"Tbe seeds of dissolution have been
sown in the Republican party. Perhaps
I should say that the party always con
tained the elements of its own destruc
tion, and that it only required the provo
oative piroumstances to develop them,
At any rate the development is visable
to the common eye, as it has long been
seen by those whose habits of close ob
servatioo havegiveuto their mental vis
ion a olear insight."
Whatever we may think of Wendell
Phillips, he has always, in ' the ' past,
proved a good political prophet.1 Whon
the Republican party was organized, he
being for a dissolution of the Uoion,
hailed it with joy. He.deolared that,
aa a pure seotional party, it was for seo
tional purposes the "first crack in the
ioeberg." So it proved. Having pre
dicted what it would eventually effcot,
he now sees, and does not hesitate to deo
dars, that it is io process of destruction
that "the seeds of distruotion have
been sown- and tbat oiroumstances are
rapidly developing them." Let Demo
crats and conservative men everywhere
take heart and courage. Tbe monstrous
organization that bas so tyranized over
the oonotry is falling to pieces, and its
baneful star will go down the political
horizon as rapidly as it rose. Again, we
repeat, the emigration into the Democrat'
io party has oommeoced, and is proceed

After all their dodgings,
and quib

question and their charlatanism, to es
cape the responsibility of erasing the
word white out of the Constitution
Ohio by the extension of free and unre
strioted suffrage to the negro, through an
amendment of our organic law tbe Kad
icals have made a fux pavx. Lven
in
the event of the proposed amendment

will still hold a lodgment in that instru

age, and under forty. five yerrs, shall be

patible with the Constitution and laws of
tbe United states, as may be prescribed
by law.'
Isn't this oversight of the negropho
bists too bad Fully six long weeks of
Legislative time was spent in getting the
voting bantling lioked into shape, and
the oowardly Radioal tricksters whipped

A Mexican Story.
An extraordinary story oomes from
Mexico relative to flour. It appears that
an old miller in tbat locality had a very
beautiful young wife, ol whom he waa
jealous in tne extreme, and took out his
toulagemenl ot that in thwacking the
lovely young being. I here was a oer
tain cook, of-thd male species, handsome
and fat, who came to the mill from the
hotel to buy flour, and bearing the dis
tress of the lovely one first, and seeing
her second, became, of course, dreadfully
love. Some one told the miller. All
the town began to talk of tbe faot, and
laugh at the floury one. . One day the
cook and lovely young wife suddenly diss
appeared, and merrily laughed the Mexi
cans at the miller's misfortune nothing
went down bnt tbe scandal of the elope
ment or tne miner s wue and the 1 cook.
The miller scowled vengefully upon all
town, and. so time passed by : noth
more was heard of the oook and the
miller's wife by any one. Two years af
ter the miller was pleased to die, and to
inform the world io a paper which was
left to be opened after his death, and to
published in the town, that tbe .oook
and his (the miller's) ( wife had by his
planning eloped into an oven two years
since, and been ' baked ' that he would
have got rid of, them elaewise but for the
jeering of the pnblio; therefor he had
ground them up in a large mass of corn,
whioh the townspeople were' pleased to
oomplimant him for as beiog exceedingly
and nutritious, and he only hopes
they will enjoy the reminiscence as
muoh as be did the remainder of bis life

The Disfranchisment of
24,000 Soldiers.
Some Republican journals have
un-
dertaken jo make light of the oirounw
stance that the pending Contlitutional
Amendment in ,tbe event of its adoption,
will disfranchise from six'een to ' twenty
thousand soldiers who did faithful ser
vice until the actual close of the War.
It won't do. The Cincinnati Commer
cial finds, upon investigation, that the
Amendment will disfranchise about 24,
000 White soldiers.. This, it thinks,
friendly as it is to Negro Suffrage will not
do thinks it will not do to disfranchise
