cratic candidate for Congress Dr.
John Sanns, of Gallipolis.
; The Oalljolis Bulletin, a neutral
paper, edited by J. L.Vance, thus
speaks of Mr. Sanns: . -
CoaE88IOHAl NoHtKATIOR. Tie Dem
doratio Congressional Convention for the

Sanns for Congress. Dr. Sanns is a
native of Gallipolis, has resided here all

liigb-slanding. In nominating him, the
Oeuiocratio party has honored itself.
- The Portsmouth Times, editodby
Hon. J. W. Newman, gives the fol
lowing brief history of Dr. Sanns:
Th Democratic Congressional1 Conven

of Gallia county in 18.') 7, and re-etcclcd
in ltti'J, ruuuing'far ahead of his ticket
and secured iiU election notwithstanding
the Democracy of that eounty were in a
minority of several hundred. In Gallia
iounty where he,is well known, he is im
mensely popular, commanding ihe ros
pcl of men of all parties, ;and,his name
iu that locality will be a tower of strength
to the ticket. Mr. Sanns will, at an early
day, vi it those counties in the district
in which he is uot so well known, and we
are sure that all who meet him will be
impieshtd in his laor, and feel that the
nouination was a strong a nl judicious
one. The Democracy of the Eleventh

and resolve to send to Congress a repre

. We have been furnished with a
synopsis of the opening speech
dolivered by Dr. Manahan at the
meeting, as follows :
Jfr Pretideni and Fellow- Cta'mx
It would not be prudent to ocoupy your
ume 10 nignt in uiaoussing the variou
issues that must be discussed during Ihe
campaign. I will only, therofore, offer
my views in regard to what I consider the
real issues to be. That there are momen
tous questions before the American peo
ple, at this time, which, you and I and
every individual in the land are deeply
interested in, is not for a moment to be
doubted. The contest between the two
parties at Ihe present time is no ordinary
contest, it is not a r olitical, but a gov
ernmental contest. It is not a oonflict tu
decide who shall, administer Ihe Govern
ment, but it is a conflict to decide whether
the system or form of Government adopted
and made by our patriotic, fathers shall be
abrogated or overthrown, and a new sys
tem or form of Government euba'ituted.
It is a ooufliot to deoide whether the Mil
itary power ana arbitrary rule shall pre
dominate, and bring the Civil power into
subordination.- or whether the Civil shall
exist as heretofore. It is a contest to de
cide -whether the. General.. Government
sbsll exercise complete control ever sov
ereign States, wilhoul delegated authority
or whether eaoh and every State shall ex
ercise ite eovereignty according to the
wriueo law, with all Its rights uuinipalr
ed. It is not aoocleit simply who shall
oe rresident or who shall be Congress
men. It ie nit a contest between men or
even between opinions or measures, but it
is a conflict of ideas irrcoonoilably op
posed to each other. It is a dire oollisisn
between two systems of Government that
cannot be compromised or move in the
same sphere. It ie not a light-hearted
contest whloh looks only to Ihe sp iile, or
to the advancement of any particular in
dividual, on account of personal consid
erations. The black flag is hoisted, and
if Radicalism, with all its frauds, hy
pocrisy and evil designs prevails, our sys
tern of Government, under whioli we lived,
prospered and became a mighty people, is
forever destroyed ; but if liadicalism goes
down, it falh, like Lucifer, never to rise
again. These are propositions which,
upon a moment's reflection, must be patent
to every mind ; and can it be possible,
feeling and appreciating these startling
facts, that we will negleot our duty and
fail to meet onr opponents ar every point?
Ah, no, Mr. President, I know that you
and I, with a great mass of the people
are ready and willing to do our whole
duty are ready and willing to make 1
vigorous effort to preserve the fundamen
tal principles upon which this government
was founded. We are not willing thai
Ihe memories of the past should sink into
oblivion, or the heroic deeds of our fathers
who fought, bled, and died to establish
eternal principles shall soon be forgotten.
We are not willing that the peaoe, happi
ness and prosperity of our country shall
he jeopardised longer. We are not will
ing that Negroee shall be made masters
and White men slaves. We are not will
ing that bond-holder shall be made rich
at the expense of the toiling millions.
We ar not willing that the blood spilt on
the plains of Missouri, in the swamps of
the Mississippi and in the valley of Vir
ginia shall be spilt in vain. We are not
willing that negroes shall be enfranchised
and white men disfranchired. We are not
willing that the old conslitution, the
ahirtjr by which our liberty was estab
lished aud to wbioh we look for eeourity
in the future from' all usurpations, shall
be trampled under foot by a reckless mob.
Let na then, my friends, contend for
principles and not men; aud -though we
may feel disappointed because - we could,
not bare our oholoe in the Convention
held at New York ; although we cannot
have the pleasure of hating the Young
Eagle of the West ae cur slaudard-bearer
in the coming campaign, let us not des
pair but light the more valliantly it all
may be for the lest. Although uia:r may
not be our first choice, we must end will
support Mm. Hie letter to the Conven
lion ia a sufficient guarantee that he is
sound on the most important plank in the
platform and that is that the uionstroue
act of Congress, oalled reconstruction,
ire nnll and Void. I like that plank in
me platform above an others. -
Let as then, fellow eitlinns, bear these
faots In mind tnd manfully oontend for
)ur rRhl. - '
- I repeat mat the Coming campaign If
not a ooniem between U rant and Bcymonr.
or between Republicanism and Democracy;
t is a war to toe tnife between constitu
tional government and - arbitrary will;
oetween tne rignt or ine people to govern
themselves anl tho grinding heel of a
relentless despotism or the anarchy of
mob. ' ' .v . ,
Every laboring man works
two '. and a half days of each
week to pay the taxes on what
he and his family cat, drink
and wear,;, fc; , v.. .
fit referring to ano'her part of this pa
per it will be seen that the Democratic
Central Committee of Vinton County have
requested the Democracy ot the eeveral
Townships of Vinton county to meet en
SATURDAY, AUGUST 8TII, in th(r
respective townships, (plaoee of meeting
being named in the call,) for the purpose
It is now time to Organist. The Pres
idential and all other nominations have
been Made. The National Convention has
given us old Roman standard-bearers; men
of spotless oharaoter and giant intellects
wno, if elected, win restore tne govern
ment to it original purity, and bringing
baok to our oppressed land all the mynd
blessings of peace, prosperity and plenty.
To acoumplish this there must be a thor
ough organisation WB MUST ORGAN-
IZF.I To secure the triumphant election
of ALL OUR CANDIDATES National,
Stale, and Ceunty candidates the cam
pulgu must be prosecuted with the great
est aotivily and vigor efer yet attempted.
We have no time to lose; the enemy are
already in the field ; their campaign has
been mapped out and every dishonorable
means brought into requisition to defeat
our ticVet. Why, we even have to con
tend with (be bonded aristocracy of six
teen hundred national banks of the ooua
try. Ataney will be lavished with a prod
igality never before dreamed f, by these
Wilson vampires of the mongrel camp.
This is ths last expiring struggle of - the
Republican Tarty; if defsaled, as it surely
will be, It will go down a polluted and
forever cursed to an inglorious and igno
minious grave. Everything depends on a
perfect organization. Lot .it be accom
plished on the 8th of August in every
township in the eounty. The young men
of the party must be up and diing Attend
lie meetings on the 8th of August and as
sist in the organisation. -
W would again sy to the Demrofats
in the different townshipe that much good
oan be accomplished by circulating your
county paper The Democratic Enquirer
in your respeotivo neighborhoods. Re
member that it will be an excellent time
lo get large lists of subscribes at the meet
ings on the 8th. Don't delay the matter
any longer. Get your neighbor to take the
paper; if he is not able to pay(for it, pay
for it for him and have it sent to him.
It will only cost 20 cents; or $'i for 10
copioa. If you work a glorious viotory
will be the result of your Tabors.
[For the Democratic Enquirer.]
A word to the Democracy of Vinton
A word to the Democracy of Vinton County.
Have you Ihonght of the importance and
magnitude of the campaign just openod ?
Upon the result of this campaign rerts Ihe
happiness of our country I Well may the
people mourn lr ibe Democratic part
should be unsuccessful in the comlog
eleotion I In a short time you will likely
be oalled upon by the County Central
Committee to organize clubs in every
Township in the county. You have proba
bly thought of this matter and made up
your minds to go to work heartily and do
the work thoroughly, W have a good
working central oommittee, but they are
powerless without the co-operation of Ihe
Democratio masses throughout the county.
The committee will do its share of the
work and do it well and it is to be hoped
the Demooracy of little Viotbo will not
be backward in giving "aid and comfort"
iu the great work. Let s make up to a
realisation of the importance of this
campaign. Let us work as we never
worked before. The enemy le now bard
at work. They are vigilant and vindic
tive. They wear a smiling countencnoe
but the devil incarnate lurks behind that
mask. They have very suddenly fallen in
love with the Irish population of this
county. What greet friendship and ex
treme good feeling they exhibit toward us
in this their hour of need. How they

"Veterans tot the Front!"
Tho veterans of tho Soldiers' and
Sailors' Convention, wbioh. met at
New York, July 4th, 1868, the fight
ers for the Union, are dotennined
to give a eealous, warm, never
tiring support to Seymour and
Blair. The following resolution
offered in the Soldiers' Convention
is certainly one of the best, ever
Retained, That If greenbacks vers end ar
good enough to pay soldiers ; if grrei
backs are good enough for n unbend a end
fathers, brothers and eone ; if greenbacks
are good enough to pay pensions; if I hey
a e good enough for farmers, mechanic,
nierohaats, tnillmen, artisans, newsboys
and bootblacks they ar good enough
for Ibe pampered bondholders, who made
the war for the Union a stepping-stone to
the establishment of a military despotism
and a moneyed aristocracy.
Gens. Steadman, Granger, Ewing,
Franklin, Hancock, Slocum, Custer,
and a score of our best fighting
officers, are leading in the coming
fight, with the war cry of "Veterans
to the front 1" and the soldiors who
fought under them will rally to thoir
And let every soldier in Vinton
county go to the polls in October
and November and vote against
evory man on the "pampered bond

Keep it before the people
of Vinton county, that one of
the editors of the negro-suffrage
paper printed in this
county, said last fall before
the election, that he had rather
see a negro vote than a 'red
mouthed Irishman. What dd
our Irish friends think of that?
How these same men arc ask
ing Irishmen to vote for Fry

THE government taxation of I8fi6
amounted to two hundred and thirty
million dollars. The securities 'pf
the government aro not subject to
taxation ; but the capital invested
in securities readies two billion five
hundred million dollars, while all
tho property, roal and personal of
evory kind, as derived from tho
official reports of 1860, amounted
to only sixteen billion of dollars.
So it can bo seen that near one
sixth of the capital in the country
is exempt from taxation. Yoto
against the bondholders' ticket!
Governor Seymour is a Safe Man.
There is a feeling prevalent among all
classes, that Governor Seymour is a safe
man that nnder his administration noth
ing w ill be done prejudicial to any interest
in the oountry. Vihilo he will not allow
the rights of the poorest to be ignored, he
will see to it that the right of those who
are more favored are duly cared for. Thie
is the kind of man we want in the presi
dential chair, backed np by a thoroughly
