BY SOME OF 'EM.
CHAPTER H.
) 1. And it came to pass ia the reign
of tbe seoond Ruler of the city of Za
loeki, when he and all of his officers had
assembled together, at one plaoe, and of
one acoord, that they reasoned among
themsolves, and said one onto another:
It must needs be that we invent some
scheme wheieby we may be able to defeat
William, whose surname is Bauqu
man, and all of his constituents, even the
Buckeyes and Irish. ,
: 2. , And. after this wise they reasoned,
and aaid : It seemeth unto us, that Will
iam.:.'lnasmttch 'ai ho is a man of mttoh
enterprise in the cause of edaoatioa,
which to us seemeth good, and the peo
pie are all of the same opinion : and in
as much as we are the possessors of about
all of the city, it beoometb. us U look
after our own interest,' we will, therefore,
aotify all of oar tenants' by a printed
oircular, printed at bur ever memorable
"Printing Press,'! that unlesB , .they vote
asainst this enormous tax, or else not
vote at all, we will, most assuredly, raise
the rents upon them, and by thus doing,
we may, peradventure, intimidate the cit
izens and make them afraid, and thus
defeat William. ' . '
3. And when they had thus reasoned
among themaelves, they all agreed among
themselves and said ; We will of ne.
oessity be oomp ailed to adopt the laws of
our "Mother Country," even the laws of
England. J. ".' ' " .
. 4. , And it came to pass when they
had thus reasoned among, themsel
that they forthwith indicted a. very plain
and pointed eommunicatioD,' and then
straightway had the sarnie printed, for
!the reason that the people might the
better read and understand the same.-
And thereupon the "Chief Ruler," took
the same and directed them, severally, to
every person as he saw proper. '
5. And it came to pass that upon the
reception of tbe Chief Huler's orders,
and when the same hid been fully .read
and fully understood by the people, that
tbey grew sorely vexed at the orders or
tbe Chief Ruler, and then reasoaed
among themselves, and said : We believe
the faot, that we are "American Citizens,'
and live in tho Jaod of America. Are
we therefore to submit, to the British rule,
as is directed to us by the Chief Ruler
thereof? Are wo to be made slaves and
submit to the rule of Englishmen' even
as OUr, fathers did in tbo early days of
this, our noble land of "Free America ?"
Are we to be the dogs and lickspittle s of
our "Chief Ruler," and submit to English
Tyranny, like unto that of Queen Vie
toria,' and even unto him who is too
proud to wear the name of an Ameri
can ? And the great multitude answered
in one voice and said : No no 1 1 Nev
er will we permit the blood of our glo
rious Fathers of the Revolution, to be
eome a stain and stigma upon our char
acter, by submitting W English Tyranny.
We are no slaves ; neither are toe dogs.
.6., Now when the day of 'contest had
come, and the harvest was fully ripe,
then did assdmblo together alt the inhab
itants of the city, and severally did make
good. their resolvoa upon the issue then
before them. . '
.7. An'd when that day's labor was
ended add the multitude had dispersed to
their several homes, then it was determ
ined by the Judges Qt this days labor,
that the people of the city was yet a free
people.
8. And again ft tame to pass, when
the labors of. that day was fully ended,
that tbe "Chief Ruler? and all ot his
offioers assembled together the, seoond
time, and thus reasoned among1 1 them
selves acd said : Of a certainty it appear
eth that we have today been defeated in
this our undertaking : It therefore, f be-
hooveth us now, seeing thai our orders
bave been set at naught, and been diere,
carded by our suljects. (hat we set our.
selves about a compromise with these our
subjects, and yet defeat them,' peradvent
ure thoy will accopf our proposition.
- -0. - Ana tbey further reasoned among
themselves and, said; We perceive of a
oertainty, that some of our subjects, whom
we mongm were intimiaaiea,, aua wouia
prove true, to us, and work for our inter
est, have most wilfully dccalved us, lad
nave not only votea agaiust us, but bavo
used their limited influenoe'agaiast. our
cause, and against our. own interest and
nave preyenteo; some or, our subjects
Horn coming up to me wore, we will.
therefore, place a mark upon all suet as
do not work for our interest, and we will
hereafter reward them for their labor ac
cording to their work. ' ""-'J
10. ' And it came to pais, that when
these several propositions had been sub
mitted, as appears by theLcho, the organ
of the Chief Baler; (which contains the
laws, orders, and tales of .the Chief Ru
lor thereof of all the aity.) and vet no
compromise was effected, then the Chief
Ruler bteatned out ,: threatenings and
curses against WrtLiAtf, and all ot his
constituents, who had sinned before their
"Low" of the eity, fo He, their 'JLord,"
was sotely vexed ,:.,;; B;,.;x
1 11. " And again he called lis o&loers
tocetber and said : It must needs be that
I enforco my orders, and let the people'
know tnai ineir -uora,- tne tniet ituier,
is not to te trifled with. -. .
12. And then it came to pass that the
''Chief Ruler did not raise the rents upon
such obeyed Li? order for he bad
respect unto them, in that they had
.Moffod" their hat. and donahirn'reT-
doffod" thejr hat, and done? him re v:
ence, - . i
13. And he beicg yet sorely vexed
because he had bean defeated in this his
undertaking, and by reason thereof, many
dollars of his money would have lo be
givun to this noble enterprise,, resolves
within himself, to make this an enter
prise of spooulation unto himself by
barrassing and tormenting some of the
people of the city and they that dwell in
the oountry round about it.
14. And thereupon he caused mnoh
of the property of the people of the oity,
and of the oountry round abauHt, to be
impounded in their English pound, from
whence they oould not be taken, until
the uttermost farthing was paid, by the
owners thsreof.' '
15. And it came to pass that Egbert,
whose surname is Bowen, (of whom we
bave before written,) was made to feel the
MIGHTY POWEB OP THE 4iLoED"ion the
fifth day of the third week, and of the
fifth month of the year, one thousand
eight hundred and sixty-seven, insomuoh
that he had not the power to go whither
soever he would, but upon the contrary
was compelled to maroh before his ooun
oil and oourt, whom Egbert recognized.
16. And when he had fully submitted
to the power thereof, and feeling himself
fully within the "Iron grasp' or the
"Lord," he became somewhat bumble
before the eyes of the "Lord," and asked
leave of his Court, to go henoo, even un
til he could prooure a Mediator, or one to
plead in bis bohalr, wbion request was
granted him by the Court upon ibis
bringing a good oitizen to stand in his
steid for the space of eighteen hours and
thirty minutes. : ;i .
17. And it oame to paes that upon
the day and at the . hour appointod oame
"Egbert and his Modiater, and there
fore released his surety, and they proeee
ded to hear all the aoousations whereof
Egbert was charged, : :.' .
: 18. And it so appeared from the tee
timouy of the ? Chief Pig Driver," that
Egbert , cad not trespassed upon bis
"Lord's'! premises, for the reason that
the "Lord" had rented the lands unto
another person, even by bis ''Chief Pio
Driver," who wears the honorable name
of "Farming Agent" .... !
19. And it came to pass, that while
"Egbert" was many miles away .from
the city looking for a Mediator; that the
"Lord erew wroth a seotfud , time, at
"Egbert," and caused his stock to be
driven from off Egbert's premises, and
took them unto himself by a writ of Re:
plevin. ; . .. ii,
20. . And when "Egbert" had ap
poared with : his Mediator, great fear
came npon the Counselor of the "Lord,"
and he was seized with great and sudden
pain in one of bis limbs, insomuoh that
be took the name of the ''Lord" in, vain,
and . even the name of his Christ ; and
be twitobed and jerked acd made, soon
lamentable facep, as that he had to : go
tbenoe irom the court, where wore assem
bled ail the "Captains", and : "Majors,"
and many dinners, even the Buokeyes
and Irieb, who are very wicked; and
when he had gone from thenoe he told
the "Chief Pig Driver" to take; back
"Egbert's" property, . and put it in bis
fields again, as the taking of it was not
laWIUl. , r , .'
: ,21. And after the oourt had heard the
Counsel of the "Lord? and that of "Egi
bert" it ordered Egbert to enter into a
reoognizance for his appearance before
the Common Pleas Court, in tho "Noble
liallsot Justice, ' even in McAbthub;
and in default of which, that be be sent
unto the "MoArthur Boardiog House,"
as tho oity of: the "Lord" has no cheap
tare tor persons charged as is Egbert.
1 22. And it then came to pass when the
people ot that oity beard the news thereof,
how that Egbert was ordered by! tho
court to do, that there was gathered , to
gether round about him. an innumerable
host of friends, even the hills and moun
tains of the oity, sprung forth and were
ready to enter upon his bond for his sp
pearanoe at tbe (Jourt House, in the "iNo
ble Halls of Justice," in Mc Arthur. .
,: 23. And again it came to pass,, that
when all this was done, the Rulers not
yet being satisfied, and not having, yet
tuny glutted tueir vengeance,, upon their
subjects, resorted to another; msans of
wreaking out their vengeanoe, and. when
they had tally agreed among themselves.
it was ordered that they ; make . another
attempt, and on the nineteenth day; of
the fifth month of tbe year one thousand
eight" hundred sixty o4po, tbey ar
rested three score and ten young lads of
the. oity, and brought them before the
court whom, they also have tried; but ud-
.V- I ! l ' . ' .

some were not. , ' . vt
;;,24.. - In the meantime it oame, to
pass that one of the - men whom the
Rulers had marked, him whose surname
ia Gabe, sought, and made him the ; vic
tim of their consuming care, fo? neither
day nor night was there rest given unto
their souls, until they had him discharged
from employment at the Maohine Shops.
25. And there remaineth one other
pereen whose ' Surname is Mat, , whose
chief business it is to take charge1 pf the
department of the, Maohine Shpgs, him
have the Chief Rulers marked ; and it
now seemeth unto. the,. ."Chief .Ruler"

Who are Responsible.
Wendell Phillips, in hie late New

bility of tho late war. He Bays :

who professed principle and practioed

praoticed infidelity that it is to' them
that tbe guilt ot tbe blood or tnese ter-
tible five years is to be traoed. It iB not
the Southern slave-holder, it is not tbe
Douglas De moor at, nor the Breokenridge
traitor that is guilty, in the first raok, of
the blood of the rebellion , but it is the
so-oailod Christian of the Amerioan
Church, and the Whig who vaunted hirm
self as strongly anti-slavery as the oioit
outspoken" Abolitionist it is tbe who

The Nashville Press and Times (Rad)
says; "He who supposos that Eihridgo,
even if eleoted, would be 'suffered by
Congress to rule Tennesse, knows little
of its iron wilt and determination."' i Wb
have no doubt . the Radioal organ of
Browalow believes itself to be fully iu
formed as to the determination of Con
gress : but we think the experiment on
the part of Congress would be rather
hazardous, notwithutabdiog; its military
surroundings.
The Working-men and the
Public Debt.
Wendell Phillips, in
a lecture in
Cincinnati, duriag the war, said that tbe
laboring blesses would have to work two
hours a day longer than usual to pay the
expenses, oi the war... Attempts are , be
ing made by the working olasees to avoid
this result, by attempting to reduce the
daily hours of labor, which is in effeot to
add twenty per cent, to their daily re
ceipts. Though commodities of life, suob
aB flour, com, beef, &o , have advanced
one hundred per cent, since I860, wages
bave not risen over. sixty-five per cent,
thus demonstrating that the oondition of
the laborer is not so good bow as it was
before the war. The New York Journal
of Commerce, in speaking of this oondi
tion of things, remarks :
"All the accumulation is the product
of labor, and the ' working-men of this
oountry bave the interest of this enor
mous debt hid upon to produce yearly,
They can not dodge it by any device;
they muBt earn it among them in addi
tion to all former burdens before they
can begin to at cumulate one dollar. It
is just so muoh more taken out of their
pay. To stand as well pecuniarily now
as they did before the war, all the men
who labor must do enough extra work to
produce the sum needed;., or deny them
selves so much in the way of consump
tion as will save this total. . It is proba
ble that, to meet it all, they must do both
that is, work harder and consume Icbf.
Increased toil and greater self-denial, are
tho portion allotted, to labor, for years to
oomc, and there is no help for it. Strikes,
associations lor mutual defense, trades
union aggression upon the world's capi
tal, and all this sort of compulsory prop
oess to evade the natural law, or escape
the penalty, will only aggravate the evil.
Heretofore the poorest (laborers of the
United States were exempt, to a great exL
tent, from the hardships which the same
olasswas called to Buffer in other conn
tries. They were enabled, with reasona
ble exertions, not oply to provide them
selves with comforts, but to enjoy within
bounds the luxuries common to the
wealthier classes. ; Few. families among
the laboring popnlation stinted them
selves in meats, groceries, or frnits in
their seaBon,and there was nothing ordi;
narily used by those in prosperous cir
cumstances whioft was not aooessable to
the labpfer, and easily obtained as the re
ward of bis industry. This is at an end:
and although the truth sounds harshly, it
may at welt be told. r Those who bave
nothing to live On but the earnings of
their daily labor, whether they toil with
weary brain or aching sinews may as well
know that they cannot continue the pleo
ty they bave heretofore enjoyed. Not
till this. is learned (and it is a bitter less
on) will the labor question be adjusted :
and those who are, tinkering at a present
remedy, by whioh this sad result is to bi
avoided, may as well give over their cfvf
fort."
