Turc County Democratic
Convention was held nt the
Court House hist Monday af
ternoon. 1 lie oilicual rcpor
of its proceedings can be fount'
elsewhere in this paper. It
Was the largest Convention
ever held in Vinton county
a convention composed of the
1 low-holders who are hilly
determined to conquer the
Jtond-hoiders; every town
whip in the county being rejv
resented by a delegation. It
was an earnest and enthusias
tic assemblage of hard-work
ing men who met to perform
the duties assigned them for
their county as well as for their
country, who did it promptly,
and in a manner that is satis
factory to all the proceed'
ings passing olT harmonious
ly, causing those .Radicals
(who often declare that ne
V 1 ... 4 rt a
grocs are better man foreign
ers) who planted themselves
in 'little crowds in the (Jour
Koomto witness the proceed
ings, to look disappointed.
Poor "impeached fellows!
how sadly they must feel!
The Ticket which was nom
inated, and which we. place at
the head ot this paper, is. an
excellent one in every respect,
although there are anion;
those who AVere defeate
many of the best, men, and
who are well qualified to fill
any of the offices for which
they were candidates, in the
county, it is generally ad
mitted, as it should be, that
the nominations are all excel
lent ones, and should have
the hearty support of not on
ly all the-friends of the da-
l'eated candidates but the
support of every mail who
casts a vote at the com
' election every lover of good
and true principles.'

It is believed that this rascality, which
levied military contributions on the peo
