COUNTY TICKET. DEMOCRATIC ENQUIRER
FOR THE
CAMPAIGN.
The Democratic Enquirer should
be read by every voter in Vinton county
during the present campaign, as we ne
lieye that the most extended circulation
of sound Demooratio paper will greatly
aid in the triumph of correot principles,
at the comins election, we offer The
Democratic Enquirer from ttiis time (or
for three months) until alter tne election,
od the following low
teemp:
Single subscribers, 25 centf; club? of
B, $1,10; cluba of 10, $2; with an ad
ditional copy to each getter up of club.
K)ne copy, one year, in oluba of not less
an ten, $1. Payments to be made in
advance. .
We offocr the paper at these unusually
low rateB with the view of bringing it
within the reach of all during the cam
paign, and we hope the offer will be re
ponded to generally all over the county.
A very trifling effort on the part of some
of our friend in oaoh township or
neighborhood would seoure a large ad.
dition to our already large subscription
list and be the means of doing a great
deal of good. The peodicg campaign is
most important one the question of
giving the negro the right to vote, bold
offiee, sit on juries, and marry into white
families is to be decided and every
Democrat should exert himself to scours
the triumphant sucoess of the Domocraoy.
Lot our able Demoorats throughout the
oounty make up a fond of from one to
five dollars or more io eaoh township,
and distribute oopies of the paper to vo
ters who take no pager and who will read.
By io doing, the peoplo can be educated
io regard to the real issues, and vote
understanding. Seod in the names at
J. W. BOWEN,
Editor & Pub'er.
McArthur, July 18, 67.
In to-day's paper our readers will
find an article headed "Dobbs and His
Difficulties," which we invite every
person to read who may take up
this paper. It is a frue and fair pic
ture of Negro Equality. Those ofi
our Republican friends who advocate
very strong Republican doctrines, and
who think it is necessary for them to
Vote for the Proposed Amendment to
the Constitution, next October, which
really brings the Negroes on an equal
ity with the white men, women, and
children of the State, should be sure
and read it. .We think it would be a
capital idea for every voter to vote
against this proposed Amendment.

GREAT
DEMOCRATIC
DEMOCRATIC MASS MEETING
AT
McARTHUR, OHIO,
McARTHUR, OHIO, Saturday, August 10, 1867.
At a meeting of the Democratic State
Exooutive Committee, in conjunction
with State candidatee, appointments were
made for meetings in nearly every ooon-
ty in the State, to be addressed by lead
ing Democrats of the State.
Judge TlIUKMAN,
(Oar candidate for Governor,)
Judge Van Thump,
and others, will address the peo
ple of Vinton county, at McAr
thur, on Saturday, Aug.
Brownlow and the Election
in Tennessee.
Tennessee has gone Brownlow by
about 20,000 majority. It will be re
membered that all residents of that
State who were in the rebel ser
vice either as volunteers or conscripts
were disfranchised last summer, when
Tennessee went through the process ot
'Reconstruction." Brownlow
since, by proclamation, disfranchised
nearly every county in the State he
thought would go Democratic, under
pretence that they were "disloyal."'
(Query If the State of Tcnnessoe
was reconstructed by Congress, by
what authority can Brownlow dis
franchise such portions of it as he sees
proper?) That our readers may be
enabled to form an opinion of the
Governor of Tonnossoe, we make an1
extract from an address delivered by
him at Nashville in the fall of 1864,
Here is what he said :
"And those men of the North
who vote the Butternut Ticket, there
by giving encouragement to the South,
are disloyal, and are as much traitors
at heart as the rebels themselves I
What do you think of that, Demo
crats of Vinton? Don't your blood
boil when you. rememherthatwhilej
your sons, and brothers, and friends,
in the Union army, were battling and
blooding as they supposed for the Un
ion of the States, Brownlow, secure
from danger, was at home slandering
them and their friends in this base and
cowardly manner?
This same Eadical pet, Brownlow,
Governor of Tennessee, in a speech
at KnoxVille, last summer, said:
"If I had my choice, I would sooner
go to Hell with a loyal negro than to
Heaven with a disloyal white man!"
Democrats, you aro the "disloyal
white men," and sooner than go to
Heaven of which he has but little
chance with you, ho would jjo to
Hell to which port he -has a free
pass with the "loyal niggers."
"Brick" Pomeroy says Brownlow is
an "illegitimate child of Hell turned
loose on speculation the correctness
of this assertion can scarcely be doubt
ed, since it is so plainly exemplified.
Brownlow is a fair specimen of the
"loyalists" of the country, who want
the people of ten States subjected to
the usurped tyrranyof the "Rump"
Congress until they are willing to
jjansfer to the negro all the rights of
citizenship to which they are lawfully
and justly entitled.
The radicals of the North indorse
every action of this despotic, garru-lous-tonguod
Brownlow," and every
vote cast for the Badical candidates in
Ohio, counts one towards electing
Brownlows to domineer over the peo
ple of this State.

Dobbs and His Difficulties.
I am no novelist, and have never
aspired to bo, but I claim to be some
thing of a politician.
If there is a loyal man I believe I
am one. I made great sacrifices dur
ing the war for my country. I did
not go to -war because I could not.
My private affairs would not permit
it. But if one person in the United
States of America kept up a more
galling fire in the rear than any other
one I am the man. I have been the
mark of the Copperheads. And be
sides it has cost me much domestic
trouble. '
George Washington Harrison Socra
tes Clay Dobbs, (that's me,) unfortu
nately married one Amy Amanda
Maria . Louisa Scraggs, and as old
Scraggs was a Democrat, my Amy has
been a follower of the old rebel sym
pathizing Copperheaded Butternujt,
and at times the climate at "Dobbs'
Cottage" became somewhat tropical.
But I have borne it all like a Christian.
Old Scraggs has always been too
fast for me in argument, but when he
came visiting and I hold family prayer
and got the old reprobate upon his
knees I had all the sav. tind vou bet
ter believe I poured grape and cannitf-'
ter into Jort bumter. Amy was ft
beautiful eirl. and I married her be-
cause I loved her. borne said 1 mar
ried her for "Dobbs' Cottage " but
that is a copperhead lie. It is true,
her father made us a present of the
farm and cottage, but what of that?
It was his daughter, and she had a
right to it. 1 was master of the situ
ation until recently. This suffrage
question involved me in a very serious
difficulty. I had taken special pains
to tantalize Amy about copperheads,
butternuts, and sympathizers, but
when this suffrage question came up
she gave me hark upon the Negro
equality question.
I fended the best I could, but found
the position was getting untenable,
and so I declared straight out for
equality and went at it upon general
equality principles.
I went my whole length and de
clared for outright equality.
Our people Triad got patriotic and
had admitted the Negroes into the
public schools, and I had the honor of
moving hrst in that important step.
One eveninsr a few weeks ago
came home and Amy and I had a set-
to on the equality question.
The children had been at school
that day, and each had a Negro next
to them. 1 saw Amy was working
her wits, the result of which was an
announcement that if the children had
to associate with Negroes, I should too.
I regarded the threat as an idle
boast, and thought no more of it.
.AJew.dava- flftor this I notified her
that General and his wife would
dine with us. Her eyes sparkteth' I
knew there was mischief brewing, but
could not foresee it. '
I advised her that the General, his
wife, and I would be at the cottage at
one. And sure enough we were, i
And Amy was prepared for us. She
had prepared an excellent dinner, and
met us at the door to welcome us, an
nouncing at tho same time that dinner
was ready. " '
So soon as wo were prepared she led
the way to the dining-room, and to
my surprise had spread a large table,
and had a saucy old Negro by the
name of Crow with his wife and the
two children that were seated next to
our children at school already seated
at tho table. . She apologized Sot her
haste in seating her first guests, as
suming that she had concluded we
were not coming, and then proceeded
to formally introduce old Crow and
the Urow family generally to the Gn
eral and his wife as brother Crow, sis
ter Crow, master Crow and little Miss
Crow.
I felt a good deal like crowing some
myself. My legs began to show un
mistakable signs of elasticity. I felt
as if I could heave out any six Negroes
in the neighborhood. But I fully
comprehended the nature of the situ
ation. The General's wife was about
to explode. The General, although
an earnest Badical, could not suppress
his olfactory from becoming slightly
elevated. My Amy was extremely
polite, and chattered away apparently
in one of her happiest moods. Old
Crow sat back with his tftumbs in thel
armholes. of his dilapidated old vest.
whilst his wife, with folded arms, was
assuming an air of maiden innocence.
Amy handed the General a seat by
the wench, which filled up that side of
tne taoie, ana numecuy seated the
General's wife by old gums and ivory.1
Then gathering up the children seated
them beside their school fellows, after
which she took her seat at the head of
the table, and requested me to be seat
ed at the further end to wait upon the
guests.
Up to this time I had managed well.
But the General's wife arose and re
marked that she did not intend to bear
the insult further. At this the Gen
eral ficw into a passion, and accused
me ot pumosely arranmncr an mtralt.
I protestea, and accused Amy, and as
I did so old Scraggs stepped in. i The
General remarked, "you old butternut,
you are at the bottom of this." My
Amy reminded him that that was her
house and no one could insult her fath
er there, and ordered him to leave. , .
The General called her a dirty huz
zy for insulting his wife, and at this
old Scraggs hit him with the knot end
of a butternut limb. I sprang between
them to protect my guest, when old
Crow placed the General and I upon
an equality. In the melee the wench
assailed tne Goneral's wife and, tho
fight became general. Amy in the!
ucauuiut) VAyuovuiunug ttllU vvUU3vl
inff noartA
Finally we had all succeeded in resuming
our purpendicular positions,
but Crow, who was just then the special
object of a charge from the General.
Amy was playing Pocahontas, by
leaning over the old carcass, and succeeded
in causing the General to retreat.
She ; then placed her arms around
him and attempted to raise him up.
My equality principles flashed on mo.
I blew up. Making a charge upon
old manhood, I ruined a calf skin.
Mrs. Crow patted me on tho back
with a chair, whilst the young Crows
set up a regular down South jubilee.
But 1 cleaned them out. i did, in
deed. The last words I heard from
old Crow were, "You're no gemman."
Scraggs enjoyed it. Amy was ex
ceedingly sorry, and could not com
prehend what had caused the row.
The General and his wife were off in a
flurry: . ... .
And l l was the maaaest ana
mutest Badical in the State.
I pursued after the general to apol
ogize and explain: and run into old
Crow. He gave me an exhibition oil
his "manhood, and seeing i was
flanked, I wheeled to retreat. In my
hasio 1 encountered the wench and
over we went.
I partially recovered and started on
all fours, when old Crow came to my
assistance, and by an attack upon the
rear enabled me to make the fastest
time on record.
As I came down the pavement
'discovered a waving handkerchief.
It was Amy's.
I Scraggs had assumed a belligerent
position and as I passed him, set Crow
to trotting in the opposite direction.
He made good time, but nothing in
comparison to what I had done.
. Since which time I have been dubb
ed "Dexter" by Amy and her father,
and at the least intimation that I in
tond to vote the Eadical ticket, Amy
insists upon rehearsing her story of
the race between Manhood and liadi
cal. I havo partially succeeded in
reconciling tho General and his wife,
but my suggestion to play tho same
joke on Scraggs and Amy, at their
honso. brousrht to the General's mind
such a vivid recollection ot old (Jrow
muscular powers, that he finally con
cluded that Negro equality would
answer for electioneering purposes,
but was a decidedly dangerous exper
iment by . way ot practical jokes,
thought so too.
Another Ticket in the Field
We learn that a few persons who oppose
the DemooratioConservative, party met
at the Court House, in MoArthur, on
Monday last, and "went through with
the operation " of placing what they call
a Union ticket in tho ' field. It is said
that many of the Union men are dissat
isfied with the proceedings of what they
call a nominating convention. We know
but little about tho trouble were no? in
town to witness the pulling of the ropes
and wires by the few individuals who
control those belonging to that party in
Vinton county. It ia Baid that there
was rather a ''equally time " in the Con
vention during tho balloting for Repre
sentative John Fee and Dr. Cline
being the candidates. When the votes
were counted out, it was discovered that
there were four more votos than there
were delegates or voters in the Conven
tion. Not being satisfied with stoning
the ballot-box at the State oleotion last
fall with illegal votes, they must now-go
itn.o a county convention and swindle
eaoh other out of a nomination. Pen
haps thoy only think it is necessary to
prsouoo a jiwe iiae a uoj auojiiog
a mark before the day of the State
election this fall, so as to be fully pre
pared to get through with the voting
easier than they did last fall. Is it pos
sible that that party, in this little coun
tyf has beoome so corrupt that its own
members swindle eich other during the
balloting in what they call a nominating
onvention? If the members of the so
called Union party in this oounty oan't
get along without voting "illegally " in
their own Conventions, we think that it
is necessary, from the illegal manner io
which they conducted themselves at the
last State and oounty eleotiona, last fall,
to WATCH IHEM AND, WATCH THKM
VERT CLOSELT.
John Fee was, after the "illegal"
tiallAtintv nAmineiAJi Kv fnnv nr fitra tnta
jority. He pledged himself to vote for
old Ben Wadx for U. o. Senator or for
President; and, of course, he ia in favor
of the Proposed Amendment to the Con
stitution of Ohio, giving all the buck
niggera in the State the right to vote and
hold office, and in that way offset the
vote of the Irish and the Germans of
Vinton oounty. How do our Irish and
German friends like such a man ? Go
to the polls and vote for A. J. Swaix,
foi iiepre8entative, ana against a man
pledged to bring you upon an equality
with the negroes. . Benjamin Hawk
was nominated for Commissioner; but go
and vote for A. Soulc. Silvanus Barb
lett was nominated for Surveyor, go and
vote for a. c. Bteinnrook. Win. , Mark
was nominated for Prosecuting Attorney;
but you must vote for P. B. Snivel. Gu
and vote against all these men, and
against the Proposed Amendment to the
Constitution giving Negroes the right to
vote against the Irish end Germans.

CHAPTER XII.
I
s
1 And it came to pass that, notwith
standing the oonteinpt of the "Lord"
for the Great Court at MoArthur, alar off,
the Lord " was commanded by the
officers of the laws of the land to be and
appear at the Court at MoArthur, afar off.
2 And the " Lord," as Is usual, found
it neoeseary to have the a Chief Pig
Driver " in attendance at the Court.
3 And the " Lord," as the day of
the trial with the friens of education
draweth nigh, oommanded many of the
inhabitants of the oity to go forth with
Him to the trial, unto the city of McAr
thur. fr off, from the oity of the
"Lord"
4 And in order to bring many in
habitants forth, the "Lord " even tound
it necessary to aay, Unto thee will I give
the land that may be needed by thee in
the oity, for obeying Me in My mighty
works.
5 Remember that I, the Lord, will bless
thee, oven unto the third and fourth genera
tion. 6 The wiched, said the Lord, shall be
punished for disobeying the command of .tho
Lord, in this, ihe eeizing upon the land in
the city for the erection of the School House,
In whloh the wicked in and round about all
the dominions I control, soemeth determined
to aducate all the lasses and all the lads ;
and even the three score and ten lads of the
city, and all those round about the city for
many generations to oome, in spite of the
command and the will of their Lord.
7 The Lord eeemeth determined to have
the people know the power of His might.
8 So He sayeth unto all His Angels, all
Ilis people, all His subjects, all who are be
'neath His iron-grasp, and even unto the
"Chief Pig Driver," and even unto Ole Mis
ter "Peter Plumfull,"
0 Give thanks unto the Lord, call upon
His mighty name, make known all His
mighty works among the people throughout
all the land;
10 Sing unto Him, sing paalms unto Him,
talk ye of all Ilis greata nd wondrous works
brought forth in the city, even of My mighty
efforts against the cause of Education in this,
My City;
1 1 Seek Ihe Lord in His strength, seek
His face continually, and remember His
wondrous works, the Great Court of the
land at MoArthur, afar off, to the contrary.
12 And It ca.ne to pass that on the fifth
day of the eighth month, of the twelfth year
of the building of the oity, and the eight
year of the reign of the Secoud Chief Ruler,
that the Lord and his 'Chiof Pig Driver"
went to the Great Court at McArthur, afar
off, to obey the command made by the offi
cers of the laws, pursuant to the request
and wishes of the many friends of Educa
tion in the might oity of the Lord, the lead
er being William, whose surname is
Baughman.
13 And during the absence of the " Lord,"
at the Great Court, it came to pass, ns it
usually does, that Ole Mister Peter Plum
full, a very mighty near plumfull Angel of
the Lord, and a euperintendeut of all the
religion, the Bunday School, the Sunday
morning edition of I lie Lord's nnosjuper,
the righteous acts, and all the holy things in
all the Churches that have been rented for
many pieoes of scrip, reigneth in the place
of the Lord.
14 And the trial commenccth in the fore,
noon of thut day, and continuetu from day
to day, and is even at this time not finished
so that the historians can write its full history,
