The Radicals undertook to
liave the "greatest Noyes" in
Athens last Friday week ever

The Jackson County Fair.
J. A. Sell, Esq., Secretary
of the Jackson County Agii
cultnral Society, will accept
our thanks for a complimen
tary ticket to the 17th Annual
Fair to be held nt Jackson,
Sept, 27th to 29th. From what
we learn it will be the best
Fair ever held in the county in
every respect. The exhibition
of Stock will exceed all former
years in quautity and quality,
and in Agricultural Products,
Mechanical Implements, and
Domestic Manufactures, the
exhibition will be unusually
largp and attractive. The ele
gant order and arrangement of
the Grouuds must prove a
source of comfort and conve
nience to exhibitors and visit
ors. Nothing which can be
accomplished will he left un
done to render satisfaction to
all who attend. It is a source
of pride to say this much of
the coming Fair of our ncich
boring county, as we are too
poor to have one at home, and
we hope it will more than ful
fill the. expeditions of the
most sanguine. Let all our
citizens attend the Fair.

General Morgan addressed

Andrew Lyons introduced the
distinguished orator, who tor
an hour and three-quarters
held the vast assemblage en
tranced while he proceeded, in
his able and peculiarly lmpar
tinl manner, to discuss the liv
ing issues of t he day.
We never heard a more con
cise and exhaustive resume of
National affairs, and the man
ner in which he laid bare the
corruptions of public officials
and the machinations of the
bondholders' league must havo
made a telling impression on
his hearers, one-uttli ot whom
were thinking Republicans.

any person to take unlawfully

erroneous, and Young Ameri

HAMILTON, Aug. 18, 1871.
To tho Hon. John Sherman, Mansfield,
Deak Sric r Two years ago
I reluctantly consented to be
a candidate for State Senator,
having been persuaded by con
fiding neighbors that my expe
rience in legislation would ena
ble me to do the State some
service in that position. Yon
were not then a candidate, and
your re-election to the United
States Senate did not depend
on the Legislature then to be
elected, yet you came into my
district and made speeches in
both counties assailing my po
sitions, as you had an unques
tionable right lodo;but you
I would hope, my opinions nnd
my political antecedents, which
was not yowr right, especially
in ray absence, and to audiences
where I could not reply. Jf or
this unprovoked injustice I had
then no remedy. You are now
understood to be a candidate
again, nnd have many appoint
ment to address the people of
the State. In consideration of
the facts named in the forego
ing prefatory statement, I am
constrained to suggest most
respectfully that it would give
me much satisfaction, if it
would be entirely agreeable to
you, to unite with you nt such
point ns may be mutually
agreed on in joint discussion of
the political issues of the day,
and, if you desire it, in a com
parison of notes on our con
sistency, respectively, as well
ns the general propriety of our
public acts in times gone by.
Permit me, my dear sir, to
assure you that this proposi
tion does not arise from any
ostentatious, unkind or trucu
lent spirit. It emanates from
the assaults it was your pleas
ure to make upon me, from a
desire to vindicate the recti
tude of my course, and from a
belief that such discussions,
conducted in a friendly and
gentlemanly manner, would
furnish the best means of en
lightening public opinion on
tho important question now
As early an answer as may
suit your convenience is re
Very truly, yours, &c,

MANSFIELD, O., Aug. 21, 1871.
Deak Slit : Your letter of
the 18 t,h inst., was received.
You invite mo to arrange that
we should discuss political top
ics at the meeting appointed
for by the Republican btate
Committee, and as a basis for
your request state that I un
justly arraigned you before
your neighbors in Hamilton
when you were a candidate for
the State Senate. I am not
aware that when speaking on
the occasion referred to I did
any thing moro than to com
ment on public nnd considered
facts, aud I certainly do not
intend to nnd did not do you
injustice; at all events you had
full opportunity to reply, and,
as I understand, availed your
self of it. I certainly do not
i . ii . . .
reel at iiDcrty to make any
arrangements in regard to
meetings which I attend by
appointment of tho State and
County Committee, but shall
in all respects conform ns to
time, place and manner of meet
ing with the arrangements
made by Mr. K. I). Harrison,
as Chairman of the Republican
Committee. Very truly yours,
To Hon. L. D. Campbell.
HAMILTON, O., Aug. 23, 1871.
To-non. John. Sherman, MjtnsfleltP,,
Dear- St :: Tlie statement
contained in your letter of the '
2 1st mst, just received, that
when yon nssiiilfed me- in 1869
I had1 full opportunity to reply,
&c;r i very inexact. Your
fmt attack was- at LeHmrawi,.
where I did not speak during
the canvass. Before yon came
to tuts city the- Democrats?
Committee requested the Com
mittee of your party to make
arrangements for a joint dis
cussion between us, in ordier
that I might defend mysrlt
acramst your attack- which
they declined1. When you
subsequently addressed the
meeting here, from whch. I
was thus- excluded, your mis
representations were repeated.
Soon after this a -Democratic
meeting was held, antl the only
reply that I made was to stig
matize some of your statement
as false, and to request yoa.1
friends present to inform "you
that I had so publicly declared.
There is not a syllable- it) my
letter of the 18th to you to
justify yoti in sayiug that it
proposed to arrange that wo
should debate political topics,
at the meetings appointed ty
the Kepnblicaiv Committee. Ou
the contrary, it explicitly pro
poses SRch points as may be
mutually agreed on, my inten
tion being to leave it entirety
to your own option to adopt
all or a portion of your publish
ed Appointments, or to make
others not interfering with
I forlroar, on' this occasion,
to comment on what wonld
seem a transfer of the inde
pendence of the Senator aud
the citizen during a canvass
involving your re-election to
the control of Mr. R. D. Har
rison, Chairman of the Repub
lican Coirunittee, whose, strate
gic plans will doubtless be such,
as to provide for a continuance
of that unmanly system of
warfare that attacks political
opponents from a masked bat
tery instead of meeting them
bravely in the open field be
fore the people. Should you,
at any time during the canvass,
be released from the acknowl
edged custody of Mr. Harrison,
and desire to indulge in tho
luxury of the tendered joint
discussions, you will please
have the kindness to inform
me. Very truly yours, &c,
LEWIS D. CAMPBELL.
