A Thief Stumping the State for
the Radicals.
yfM. II. Gibson, Treasurer of tbe
State of Ohio a few years ago, is now
on the Btump in this State for thoNe
gro Suffrage Ticket and for the Pro
posed Amendment to the Constitution.
For taking a large amount oi the peo
pie's money from the Treasury and
appropriating it to his own use, he
was arrested upon a State's warrant
as a thief, and was held in a large sum
for his appearance at Court. 1 lie was
found guilty by the Grand Jury and
indicted for the offense; and, after va
rious dolays, he was found guilty ;by a
jury of his countrymen of embcwling
the money belonging to the . people.
For this offense he ought to have been
sent to the Penitentiary like! any other
scoundrel; but he was granted, by a
Republican Judge, (a good friend,) a
new trial: and before tho' trial took
place; West,- the present Republican
Attorney. General of Ohio, entered a
oWeand gave the convicted robber of
tho Treasury liberty to make speeches
in difforent parts of the State for the
Republican party and lor Negro Suff
rage, instead of sending him within
the walls of the State' Prison to wear
a convict S dress and to oo tne, state
some service 1 ' ' - K
The Ohio Statesman says of Gibson:
'This is the same Gibson that swore
before an examining committeo of the
Legislature, that certain moneys in
the State Treasury exhibited by him
to cover his use ot the public tunas,
belonged to the State, when the mon
ey and other evidences of debt were
borrowed for the Durnose of 'deceiving
the committee and hiding his own
scoundrelism.'" Then and there, Wm.
H. Gibson in swearing that which was
not true! made oath to a falsehood; and
this scamp is now sent out to Instruct
the people in the manner, they should

Th Campaign in Ohio The Rad
icals Abandon thi Issdk. The ad
herents of Radicalism' in Ohio have
totally abandoned the issues of the
campaign, and, like a whipped boy af
ter ne has escaped from a chastising
parent,' are now engaged in making
faces and calling names. ,
Not , a single speaker has dared to
meet tho issue, and feeling that all is
lost and that thoir-stumpers are over
powered, are sending to other States
for assistance, and 'have secured the
promise of quite a . number of eminent
gentlemen (?) to come to" their rescue.
Thia is a humiliating necessity in fc
State where they boast of a handsome
majority. StateMan
The Privileged Class. The bond
holder who lont money to the Govern
ment has his bonds exempted from all
oihwj anu iucui utxauun. j. lie ouiuiur,
who did not lend money to tho Gov
ernment, but gave it his blood instead,
and who parted with his limbs in its
service, has all his property taxed.
He may have but one poor ; house and
lot, bat upon it he is taxed, while his
wealthy neighbor who rolls in luxury,
pays dos a cent .upon., nis eiuu,uuv iu
Government bonds. The neb. mans
money is therefore more highly count;
ed than the poor man's blood. The
bondholdor is the privileged class, ana
not the soldier. ', , '
- There have been two oasos of cholera
in thia eounly within tha past week
both fatal. Michael OfLeary, a native
of Ireland, died of cholera at Zaleski,
on Sunday last; and Augustus Gasman,
a native of Germany, and a resident of
this owe, died last Saturday light, of

der to make it a part and parcel of

those same men upon the Union twlf
will do in the Legislature? ' Will they
wnt.A Nof; tr will thev ., ratify, the
amendment to tho Constitution, which
is now awaiting the action of the next
session of Congress? If the Legisla

chising the negro in every State aid

Tf tW will vote for it and for en

tion upon the subject by calling at this offiia,
[Communicated.
Mr. Editor: Permit me to ask
through . the medium of your Demo
cratic Enquirer, if II. C. Jones, the Re
publican candidate for the State Sea
ate, holds the same; principles as his
father did once upon a time when he
introduced David Christy to ft. man as
being engaged in colonizing negroes
and doing many kind things in behalf
of the negroes?. The consequence of
this Introduction was, the man was
dragged through lawsuit after lawsuit,
till nig farm was finally sold at Sher
iff's Sale; his family broken up; and
his soes went into, the army one
died by a rebel bullet, and the other
died the horrible death of starvation.
The wife, because she; could not ' con
scientiously ' sign a deed of the farm,
and unter a separate examination say
she wai contented to - be cheated and
remain satisfied with a fraudulent bar
gain, vas slandered until life was a
burden, was deprived of necessary
food, nd was' kept in a state of star
vation till tho Penitentiary would
have been a welcome asylum, and then
"ragged into Court to hear untruths
told and a divorce granted for faults
not her own. i-.Now, in her old ago,
almost blind, with her health destroy
ed by the treatment she has received,
aod grief-stricken at tho destruction
of her family, she is deprived ot her
right.of dower in her husband's estate;
and .her , own property, since tho
granting of the divorce, is made liable
for her late husoana s aeDts to ine
amount of six thousand dollars, while
the husband, by, the decision, ot . the
Court,, is freed from tho liabilities to
payitho debts. , If the Bondholders,
and the Negroes, after they obtaio the
right of suffrage, are to abuso women
the way this woman has been abused,
it would be far better for parents to
imitate the Chinese and . slay their fe
male children as soon as they are born.
Will the Bondholders and Negroes
control the country? Is II. C.Jones
to be one of the agents for the Bond
holders and Negroes, if he is elected?
A WOMAN.
The Laboring Men vs. Radical
Bond-holders.
, ; The White plow-holders, who follow
the plow , all day in tho broiling sun,
dressed in old clothes; are appealed to
to vote the Bondholding, Negro Suff
rage ticket, in order that Bondholders
may draw gold interest, wear nne
clothes, and rest in their soft-cushion
ed chairs." ' ' ." ;-r."-
' The men who work in the tobacco
field, corn field, wheat field, oats field,
parley field, rye field, bean patch, and
potato patch, are appealed to to vote
the Uondholding, Negro buttrage tick
et, in order that the wives of Bond
holders may continue to flaunt their
silks and laces in the faces ot their
wives, who wear calico and gingham,
: The men who toil in work, shops
from dawn till dewy pvo," fearlessly
exposing their bodies,, naked to the
waist, to tho fiery heat of rod-hot. fur
naces, are appealed to , to vote the
Bondholding, Negro Suffrage ticket,
in order that Bondholding speculators
may continue to gather fortunes from
their labor. ,,, , . ,. ;
. The laboring men throughout the
state are appealed to to continue in
power a party corrupt as hell itself.
A party, that has created a Military
Despotism over the ruins of tho best
Government 'twas ever man's fortune
to live under and be governed by.
j The Democracy firmly believe that
tbe people are last realizing their des
potic, tax-ridden condition, and will
rise in their might, and hurl the ruling
Revolutionists irora power. ,i; .,

CHAPTER XV.
,1 J, And itcsmetopass,in the build
ing np ot the mighty city of the " Lord"
and inasmuoh as the Chief Rulers
and all of tbe officers nac made an ex
periment in various waya as to how they
mieht improve the ciiy and make it be
come interesting with the people, for in
that they had tried UA8 and Uassino
until It bad failed, they now resort to
Steam Navigation of the great Raccoon
River upon tbe bead waters ot wnion
tbe mighty city is buiil. -
2 And in the seventh and eignin
months of tbe ninth year of tho reign
of the second Rnlor of the great city it
oame to pass-thai certain eoierDriMOK
meo of the country, contrive a scheme
whereby this mighty river msy be made
navigable for sloam vessels;. .,
3 And inasmuch as tbe enterprise was
one ot promising prospect, 'nam me
owners thereof it bchooveth the "Lord!'
and all of his chief ffioers and pertain
others of tbe ennntv. that they make a
great show in , thia matter. ,
4 tseoinpe, when tne lame oi sncn
mighty enterpnte and soou promising
prospect is onered unto tne cointry, if
ia aupposed that very many of the peo
ple will bi pleased, with the projeot-ifs
peoially all thoce whom it may probably
beneBt by rson thereof.' ' ' ' ' ")i
6 For itseemeth unto many persona,
thst this mighty projeot, or experiment
may be one of profit. , : , ; Ui .:
6 For io that, it will afford an. outlet
of the mighty city unto the great waters
of the earth and may peradventure be a
matter of interest' unto even owner of
stock in this enterprise. n, - , -:
7 For all things that shine are not
gO' , ,
: 8 Rut' there remaineth a' matter of
greater interest unto somo of the eiiiiens
of the land why this michty project is
beine now earned into effect. ., ,
9 . For in that the f Public building of
the county, even the noble nans ot jus
tioe, hath been talked of being removed
from the oitvof MdArtbur unto the city
of the "Lord," and. to be established
there, it therefore becouteth a matter of
interest with many of the poople of . the
land to understand all the matters, per
tainioer to this mighty enterprise.
10 For at fi'st thooght it seemeth a
matter of plain faot unio those eonoern
ed in the mighty enterprise thst it is only
a matter of interest unto those imoiedi
atelv onnceraed "
'' 11 But it seemrth that this is a matter
or more interest wiih many of the eitii
sens than the mere profit of thus organ
Using a compnny for the purpose of navr
igatiirg the Rsooiwn River. ,, "
.: 12 For inasmuch as this will mako the
eitv of the "Lord" a centre point of
business in tbe land and even in the tit
tie oountv of Vinton, the name us
iustlv be allied the metropolitan city of
our land, and upon this the removal r.T
the county seat may somewht be justly
advocated to be of general iaterest with
the people. ' "'
13 And 19 it will happen with the
poople. that strange dalusiona will lead
them aBtray, lor that the chief object of
this Grand Scheme and enterprise is to
remove our county seat from, McArthnr
to the city of tbe "Lord "to be ruled
by the f Lord."! , , s,':.A
