THE PEOPLE VISITED!
Jones Cometh to Allensville—He taketh
a Nap, and Over-sleepeth His Time—
He Becometh Discouraged and Departeth
to the North Country, Even
unto Pretty Run.
. It came to pass in the days of Ne
gro Equality that there was ono
Homer, whose Burname was "tfones,
who aspired to bo a chief ruler among
the people, even unto the offico of
State Senator and chief Law-giver;
the'sarae was a mighty man of valor,
who went forth to battle in the days
of Abraham -and drove tho enemy
from tho rivers, even unto tho ends of
the earth. Now, thero was a region
called Richland, the chief city of
which was Allensville, whose inhabit
ants sat. in great darkness, and the
people saw no light, insomuch that
t icy wcrq opposed to Negro Suffrage.
Now, it' cawo to pass that Ilomer,
(the same is also known among his
kinsfolk as Navigator No. 2,) was sent
. by the council of wise men from Jic
Arthur even unto Allensville, to ex
hort the people thcifoT to turn from
the error of their . ways, and as ho
drew near tho people said, All liaiLJ
And he turneth in and lodgcth.at the
Sherman House
And "when the chief men of the sect
of the Radicalswere gathered togeth-
er on, the Btreet corners, they began
to inquire where the wise man was;
and they say,' He' loclgeth with one
Sherman, the Landlord; and they all
with ono accord and One voice, said :
Let us go thither. And as they drew
near tho house tho said, Where is Ho
mer, tho "Orator, for wo desire to see
him? And the Landlord sayeth, Bo-
hold. 'ho sleep ;th! And tho chief
men marveled among themselves, say
ing: "What manner of man is this that
cometh among : us, even from McAr-
thur, to expound the things concern
ing the Amendment, and lo! this deep
slumber hath overtaken him?
' And they tarried at the inn of Sherman,
until tho eveving drew on, and
yet he continued to sleep. Now theie
arose no little disputation' among
them, for somo said he had taken too
much wine; others4said, How can th's
be, for behold there is none kept in
tl)is city Then said they, lie cometh
from: McArthur, and his brethren
tliere are owners of tho Boil and such
as have vineyards and winepresses,
and they do partake freely of tho juice
thereof, and have lordly possessions,
and interest-bearing bonds, and flocks,
and herds, and stately mansions, and
they do go arrayed in purple and fine
linen apu faro sumptuously every day,
irjsofnuch that their very, eyes stick
out " with . fatness. . And they said,
Behold wo havo seen and heard
cnouch'of this fellow, for night draw
etjh on- and yet he sleepcth; let us
arise. and so nonce. .
And as they wero about to depart
Homer awoke from his slumber and
came forward into their midst and
sard, "Why ' depart ye? They said
unto him," Thine hour is past. Then
said --ho, Tarry ; thou until I see
tlierevbe any Ono hero who keepeth
wine and I will yet address thee.

Then, saidjqhV potter, (he himself also
being ah Orator,) . Brother Jones, why
art thon discouraged? -Let. ub go un

Allensville, Sept. 18, 1867.
How Short Their Memory Is.
"California, held her election a fewdays
ago, and through dissensions in
the Republican ranks, gave a Demo
cratic majority. .,". .'
Thosa ptor-dovlW liave not nudist vlc
'tovy. for bo long,' thai H would be
wrong to refuso them the right of re
joicing once in every tew years."
Record.
We "'spec" time ffies swijtly by
when Democratic "Victories" ; are
thought of by Rads. How long has
it been since Connecticut wheeled in
to line? Since Kentucky told her
forty thousand for Democratic princi
pies A few years? You re some as
aforgcttist! Some "Dissensions" eh?
but Haight overcome all dissensions
and polled six thousand votes more
than both candidates of Abolitionism
We have heard of drowning men
catching at straws, but never knew or
heard beforo ot ono catching at
straw where no straw was.
"Crumb of comfort," surely, to
know that with all your hate for
Haight he overreached all opposition
somo six thousand. Small "crumb,"
this; and Mr. Record, if you will look
at Maine, Montana, or Colorado you
can find another "crumb;" and we
predict also a very "leetle" "crumb"
;n Ohio say the. Amendment knock
ed higher than tho moon, lower than
tho Dead Sea, and farther away than
Heaven va Sodom. '
Now, Mr. Record, say . no more
about California it hurts Radicals;
don't mention Montana it pains 'em
'droffu'.ly;" say nothing about Maine-
Democracy gained over. 16,000 there
and praise the Amendment or it won't
carry. Work as though tho entire re
sponsibility of this campaign hung up
on your shoulders, while we sing
. "Hh, Lord, on what n Oonder thread
. llnng everlwtmg thinx,"
you may pai s around the hat and take
a collection for the relief of tho sol
diers' widows, from whom your party
stolo 6800,000 for political purposes
Bunsby luiclly explains the present
system of raising revenue, as follows
"Now, you, see, in the first place
they git the amount of a feller's busi
ness. That is taxed. Then thcy'find
how much ho earns every month, and
that s taxed. Then they hnd out
about his profits, and on that they
their tax. Then they manage to
somo tax' on what he owes. Kext
comes what they call income, and that's
taxed. Then, if anything is left,
preacher calls round and gets it to sustain
the church and convert the heathen."
Examine.
' Democrats oannot be ioo oareful in exam
Ing their tickets. '. '
: A fine opportunity is presented, owing
its great length, for the Jnsertion by
Radicals of some of their candidates.

Fenian Riot in England.
Manchester, September 19. -Quite
a serious Fenian riot occurred to-day,
resulting 5n the killing and wounding
of several persons, while a strong po
lice escort was conducting the Fenians
Kelly, recently arrested in this city,
and Veasey from jail ; to the railroad
depot'preparatory to their removal to
Dublin for trial.
It was attacked by a mob armed
with- cluba, stones, and firearms. ; A
desperate : battle .ensued for a time,
when the police, finding .themselves
overpowered, wore obliged to give
way. The prisoners were rescued by
the mob and 'carried off in triumph.

The NbOro in the Public Scnoots
We are allowed to copy the follow
ing paragraph from a letter received
by a gentleman ot this city rrom a
relative .in JNew. Orleans:
"My expenses are about to be con
siderably enhanced, which, consider
! 'it - nil' - 1 ' T
in? me iauin? on in uusiness, i can
but illy; afford. You remember that
you used to observe that the public
buuuuiB ill una guy were mo utsi, m
the countrv. and so I believo thev
were; but their glory is about to de
part. 1 can not consent that . my
children shall sit cheek-by -jowl at the
same desk, and upon the same bench
with negroes, hence 1 shall be com
pelled to send them George, Ellen,
Kate, and Rose to a private semina
ry, at the same time that I contribute
my eharo to the support of the public
school.
There is about as much food for re
flection in the above extract as if
volume were written upon the subject,
and we commend it to the advocates
of negro suffrage and negro equality
in Ohio. ' We can vouch for the excel
lence of the New Orleans schools un
der the old regime, as we can for our
own at the present time. The negro
has completely demoralized the tor
mer, as he will the latter, if the Ead
ical party continue to hold power in
this State; - How many are there who
heedlessly vote that ticket, .but would
shrink at their sons and daughters
being compelled to sit "cheek by
jowl" with the negro 7 Cm.Js.nq.
' Extract From a Letter From
Jackson, Louisiana, to a . Friend in
Cincinhati. "The freedmen of this
country are holding what they cal
Loyal League meetings, once or twice
a week. They place guards around
to keen all white people away, except
a few Northern Radicals, wno came,
here' .to organize " them and make
speeches to thorn. - They are arming
themselves, and say boldly that they
own the houses and lands ot this coun
try, and they will have them if they
have to kill all the white people of
South to (ret thara.

idea ot the state of things hero? The

The whole circulating medium
this country does not exceed $750,000,
000. Upon this medium alt the tax
es, Federal and State, are to be paid,
and the whole business of the nation
transacted. . Last year the taxos alone
paid by the people exceeded in
United States $800,000,000. In other
words, if all the taxes had been paid
at one time, thero would hot have
boon money enough to pay them, leav
ing not a cent to do business with.
