can't ace what It expects to accomplish liy
making suoh falae statements' Not from
one single porllto of the eouatrj bap (lie
Record had a wotd of oheering newa of a
revival of buaineae. The eountry ia tired
of tbla Radical Congress". The country
needa reposenot agitation. "From all
portlona ef the country wp hetr" the
cries of" distress and loud oomplaints
against the tardy action of Congress ;lu
giving relief to a suffering people. In
every journal, we read, and so do the
scribblers of the Rttord, of large meetings
of manufacturers protesting agaipst the
moat odious and corrupt system of colleot
inj publlo revenues : of meetinga of the
suffering and exulted people demandipg
equality of taxation and that a atop be
pqt tp lb profligate eipendllurp of the
people's money ; and phamplets are being
issued suggesting remedies for the somlng
financial orlala which a civil convulsion
would at once precipitate into a condition
or gpreral bankruptoy and ruin. Tbe
"cheering newp " we receivp in thatcWil
War ip contemplated by thp traitorous
leaders of thp Kadical party. Thp very
air Ip filled with rumors of tbe proposed
movements of that aecret political organi
sttlon known as the " Grand' Army of the
Itepublio, " and the Radical Governors of
Illinois, Pennsylvania, and Missouri have
telegraphed not of "a revival of busi
ness "but that "Ihe spirit of 1861 seems
again to be aroused," and that ''troops are
rapidly tendering their services to sustain
Congress. " That's thp "cheering news '
wo bear; that's the way business is re
vlving."

Ahcndsd Roao Law Thp road law of
this State haa again been amended. We
are unable to give thp law in full as
amended, but it substantially restores the
old law. The Township Trustees again
lay eff their respective townships into
road distriots ; and Supervisora are to be
elected in each, at thp annual ppring
election. (Township Trustees will do well
10 noticr that part pf the law.) It gives
tbe Supervisors, $2 CO per day,, after de
ducting his two days' laboring and Im
poses a Sop of flvp dollars and costs upon
Supervisors ' who are elected and fail to
qnall fy or serve. It restores thp bridge
fund of the' counties to tbe County Com
missioners where it properly belongs.
. The law may have defeots but in onr
brief notice wo are unable to point them
out. But in our opinion It Is a great im
provement on the law repealed.
Now is tbs Timimo Rbao. Now is the
time for Ihe people to read and undorstam
ihe issues that are to come before them
this fall tor decision. It was never so
important for thp salvation ol the Union
ihat the people aot understanding'. One
false step now may prove fatal to tbe
government beyond the hope of recovery.
Never was tbe national existence, as a
free constitutional government, in as great
peril as to day. . The Congressional con
spirators and traitors have their haods at
tlio throai, of the nation, and the body is
almost pulseless.' Wa tell thpJJ peoplp that
tho struggling to-day is-not odp of parly,
but for the existence or destruction of
tree government. If the Uradioals tri
umph, free cons'ilutional government is
at au end, and only taxation and oppress
ion are in reserve for lite peoplp. I
We oopy the above from the Fret Preu,
Of course this is tho lime to read. Our
country is about to p tss through an 'ordeal
more aevero than any one either within
the recollection of any man now living or
recorded in the anna's of tho world.
