By order cf Senatorial Committee:
JOHN HAMILTON, Chair'n
That blusterer, who i3 try-
irifj to make some general noyea
for the Radicals in this cam
paign, said yesterday week ago
that they should be ashamed
if John Sherman or a good
sound Radical could not be
returned to the United States
Senatt. Tht was a hint to
the Radical leaders of Vinton
county to work for the elec
tion of T. M. Bay for Repre:
sentative, who, if elected, would
vote to return John Sherman
to the Senate, and then the
tariff robbery and the land
grant swindles will beicoutin
ued. Sherman, since he ling been
in the benate, has voted to
give to corrupt railroad rings
102,000,000 acres of the public
lands, which,' at $2,50 per acre,
amounts to $200,000,000, and
if sold would have lessened the
taxes of the people, but Sher
man helped give it to corpora
tions ! nnd rings.. Of which
general noyes said nothing.
He did not say either how long
the people will have to suffer
this corrupt extravagance.

GALLIPOLIS, Sept, 4th, 1871.

DeaW Sin j Robert Mac
Leoul, ' Eq.r -Chief-Engineer,
completed hia estimates on the
1st inst.. for part of the surveys

you-a coj)y of his
From a ca'cii';!- io-uirvTVation
"yTti.v..iiti v
oi saiu Buiv eys, escirDaies nnu
reports, I am satisfied that the
same can be so modified as to
reduce the cost of grading,
masonry and bridging, froa
Gallipolis to the connection
named above, to less than
$300,000, and it will require
a further subscription between
here and the old road bed re
ferred to above, of about $100,
000, before it would be prudent
or safe to commence the work.
Lot this amount bo promptly
subscribed, and it will insure
the " speedy building of the
Iload ; and it will also go fur
ther towards insuring the con
trol of the Road to the people
between Gallipolis and Logan"
than anything else that I can
imagine within their reach.
We waut cheap' transporta
tion, population, euergy and
capital. Give us the first, and
the others will s'oop follow ;
and they will soon establish
manufactories of all kinds, and
instead of our population stead
ily diminishing,- as I am told it
now i, it will increase rapidly;
business will spring up; real
estate will . advance, and not
only advance, but there will be
Olivers wno win improve it oy
building dwellings, business
houses, shops, furnaces, machine
shops, factories ofall ldnds;-
in short, such a tide ' of. pros
perity will be inaugurated in
old Gallia as the most sanguine
eon hardly imagine. , To enjoy
these benefits to the full extent,
it needs the control of the af
fairs of the Company to be
kept in the bauds of the sub
scribers between Gallipolis and
Logan. Now, will the people
of Gallia county subscribe the
required amount and have the
road speedily built, and thus
have their full share of the
control of .the road. Thev can
if they will. Or will they let
some otuer parties come in and
furnish the money, build the
road-and control it. If they
do, they may rest assured that
such parties will not discrimi
nate iu favor of this end of the
road, but may find it to their
interest to discriminate strong
ly in favor of other point?.
True, we would have a Rail
road connection with other
points of the world, and 1 have
heard some cf our citizens say
they did not care who had the
control of the Road, lustso we
set it. But I thiuk those that
make such remarks, either make
them trom the want of knowl
edge, of what would be the re
suit of foreign control,-? or for
the want of reflection, or be
cause they care nothing for the
improvement of our town and
county. Such, in their impa
tience, no doubt, would be
willing to give almost , any ad-
might bo asked
by an outside party for the
purpose of getting a road; but,
rn my opinion, we had better
remain hve years loncrer with
out a Road than to give the
control to others. I have been
urged to commence the work
at once, but I have seen so
much lost ' to subscribers by
commencing work before they
were ready, that I have to say:
No, not a blow will I consent
.to strike until thero is enoosdi
subscribed, or otherwise provi
ded for, to satisfy the Directors
that it will ,' grado tho Road
frotn Gallipolis to Logan, 'and
if yon want tho Road? and the
full benefit of it, the soouer you
subscribe tho necessary amount,
tbo sooner you will , get it ; or,
I
i
,
if you can get any man that
will do better lor your interests
thaii I have, or may do, say(so,
and I will resign the position I
occupy. . . - - .
.At the meeting of the Di
rectors on Saturday last, after
an examination of the surveys
and estimates of the engineers
as far as made, it was thought
that the estimates made were
sufficient to show the entire
practicability of building the
Road ; and notwithstanding
some parts of the routes esti
mated on can be materially
improved and : hecutjesenid.
by. further instrumental sur
veys, it was deemed most 'ex
pedient to defer such further
surveys until we commenced
work for final location, nnd it
was also decided to be best to
suspend any further estimates
for the present, and also to
defer deciding upon a final lo
cation of the Road until the
next regular meeting in two
weeks from last Saturday,
when it was hoped we would
have a full board, and then de
cide on location if thought ad
visable. The present estimate for a
Road from here to a connection
with the old road bed near
McArthur, as stated in Mac

magnificent arches, columns,

The Polaris, with Capt. Hall's
party, was found at Disco, in
good spirits and hopeful of
their enterprise. A regular
summer was found at Green

Sound Views of a Leading

In n vtrv abje article, Hon.
David At Wells,-' who, by the
way, isa'recogmzi'd Republican
statesman comes to these' con
clusions:' He finds that trW
complaints of the working peo

pie, in spne or tne .nomiually
increased rates of wafes; art
general, and that the wages dc
not meet the cost 'of the peces
iaiies of life. Ships arei 'rol
ting at the' wharves, important
branches of manufacturers arc
abandoned, - and - -producers of
:?t5Pknjtkle3-- claim:, that, fl'iey..
earn no profits. Commerce i$
orippled, and, while exports
diminish, imports increase in
porportion. The people are
now using less tea, coffee- and
sugar, and fewer shoes am!

There is great trouble i'nv
Washington! President Grand
is' at Long Branch, .where he
has been during the summer."
Unfortunately he could not
take all of his blooded horses
with him; the consetpierrctj' h
there, has been trouble ,ow
account of it. The new terri
torial government at Washing
ton signalized its advent '' to
power, some weeks ago;,.by tho
establishment of afi iustitution
called a "pound" and the ere;nv
tion of a new' officer called the
"Pound-master.'? -This Pou'udr
master; in obedience to' the
laws, made and provided,- be
gan forthwith to make raids u
all the geese,' goats, and hog?,
and other animals, roaming at
large around the Capitol, His
exploits in this line hare been
about the. only sensation the-re
during tha heated term. On
Friday he eclipsed all his pre
vious efforts bytapturing three
splendidly "-groomed '" horses,
roaming around loose ' ' the,
vicinity of the White Ilouse.r
Tli'ere waSj of course a great
deal of ' speculation ,a3 to tlw
ownership of tbc.blooxled ani
mals, when finally it was ascer
tained that the gentlemen at
White House had so far negv
Iected their duty as to allow
the President's horse3 to es
cape. An orderly from tho
Executive Mansion soon made
his appearance, at the . pouud,
and claimed the horses as the,
property of the President. Ho
was informed that the only way
to get them out was by, com
plying with tho "requirements
of the law and paying two dol-'
lars apiece for them,1 which her
paid reluctantly, declaring; that
when the President came home,
the money would have to bo
refunded, or he would stay
away from Washington alto
gether; and take all his blood
ed horses, presents, &c, along
with. him. . .
Grant has succeeded, says
the Brooklyn Hagle, in drag- ,
ging down "the highest office
iu the world'' to his own level.
In past times, if the President
of the United States visited
Brooklyn, for instance, every I
prominent citizen of all parfcietr
would deem it a pleasure and a
duty to show him every atten- '
tion possible. Grant" spent
yesterday in Brooklyn, and,
outsldo the cit'en that enter
tained ' him, his associates for
the day Were professional

TM President appears to bo
dpjermined that not A'ainrla
