Not one word did general
noyes utter about the groan9
and cries of the over-taxed
people of this State.
Nothing could more signifi
cantly testify to the demorali
zation and downfall of the
Radical party than the small
number of tUose of the party
who turned out to hear general
noyes indirectly proclaim that
the party . leaders are corrupt
The Democratic Northwest
says whenever a man submits
his pretensions to a Convention,
under a pledge to abide by its
decision, and then violates hi
pledge of honor, his position i
not only tlrat of a bolter and
diorganizer, but involves per
sonal meanness and dishonor.
The abore "is true aud cor
rect as we verily believe."
While Gen. Nyei was ad
daessing the Vinton county
Radibals, at the Court House,
last Tuesday week, he "weut
for" the bolters in an earnest
style similar to the above.
Gen. Noyes stated in his
speech at McArtlmr, that Gen.
McCook was about to with
draw from the Democrat ic tick
et. This personal misrepre
sentation of a gallant competi
tor is unworthy or Gen. JNoyes

Misrepresentation is all that
could be expected from a
Radical office seeker.
The "able christian editor"

the most remarkable ability.
Week before last he commenc

a terrible creaturtj "on the
fling.'' Having flung great
quantities of his filth at ' the
Portsmouth Republican, Jack
son Standard, Waverly Re
publican, and oue or two other
Republican papers in "the river
counties," he is now showing
us some simple samples of his
soft specimens, without the
least "cause or provocation."
He excels any dredging ma
chiue in any region we ever
heard of. He is utterly relent
less, lie snaps at everything
not the least pity on nothing.
He is absolutely terrible ou
them Jackeon fellers that "cut

that it will not support Thom

The Herald is right for once
black nnd dishonest as it is
politically. Let the bolters
who are trying to defeat the
regular Democratic nominees
for the Senate and House in this
Sherman campaign bo permit
ted to cast their own votes for
themselves. After the election,
let them shed their own tears
and do their own mourning.

The Republicans iu Cuya

In several counties two can
didates are in the fiel J. Many
of the Republicans, up there
say that the "country has done
as much for the Shermans as
the Shermans have for the
country." They- appear to
want a ''new deal." There is
a large number of Republi
cans in this county who don't
want any more Sherman.

Of course General Noyes
couldn't help telling the Radi
cal Ring in Vinton county,
at the Court House, last week,
what the Radicals had done for
the African race ; but he neg
lected to say that, so far, the
Radicals treated the negroes
with contempt whenever they
have asked for an office, The
Radicals seem to be" pre
judiced to color; seem to be
opposed to a negro being nom
inated for office, but very wil
ling for him to do their voting.
In tho extremely Radical
county of Greene, that party
in convention not only refused
to place the name of va nt. ,
(one of . "the down trodder.
race,'') ' on the county ticket,
but voted to keep forever alive
the prejudice of color by in
structing their candidate for
Representative to vote against
abolishing the separate schools
for white end black children,
as the schools now eist. .
[From the Coshocton Democrat.]
Voting, a Duty.
The man who docs not vote,
forfeits his right to complain.
The only way to get a fair
expression of opinion, is to
call out every ballot.
Now; it is well known that
there are hundreds perhaps
three or four hundred Demo
crats in this county, who sel
dom go to the polls, except in
times of great political excite
These gentlemen are chronic
. They complain that the nom
inations are not good.
That the country U ruled by
That taxes are too high.
And that everything goes
All such are respectfully re
ferred to the oration, at Boston,
recently, of Gen. Horace Bin-
ny bergeant, from which we
make the following extract:
"So we, who think the ballot
supercedes the bayonet, and
would not see it turned against
society by the vicious, improv
ident, and dangerous classes,
who have no interest of prop
erty or character to protect,
should under the severest pains
and penalties compel every
citizen to vote. Election days
should be the roll call of tbe
nation. The citizen has no
more right to withhold his unit
from the sum of law and order
thau has the soldier to desert a
field where his musket may de
cide the combat. If wo are a
Government the governing
powci must not desert itself."
General Sergeant proposes
to euforce attendance at tbe
The idea is full of signifi
cance. Men should be compelled to
do thicr duty to the State.
For every omission, there
should be a tine of one hundred
dollars, ' and imprisonment for
at least thirty days.
The man who has been
clothed with the sacred privi
lege of voting, should be com
pelled to do his duty.
The ballot is the great op
portunity of the free, who
woulti remain tree.
The Democratic party, while
it embraces a multitude of good
men, also embraces all the
worst elemeuts of American
It does not embrace the tar
iff plunderers; it does not em
brace the land robbers ; it does
not embrace the public default
ers; it does not embrace the
niggers ; it does not embrace
the carpet-baggers ; it does not
embrace John Sherman, nor
any other Senator, who, in
public service, on a salary of
$5,000, contrived to save a for
tune of millions. What does
this peculating calumniator
mean by "the worst elements
of American life?" The
worst elements of American
life are the scouudrels who for
ten years, by a multitude of
devices, have enriched them
selves by robbing the people.
, No person was suprised last
Tuesday week to hear general
noyes say that the election this
fall was of ''vast importance."
These hard times prove that it
is ' importaut that the people
should vote for a change of
rulers. Husbands, mothers, and
children are living only from
hand to mouth upon what lit
tle they have left after enor
mous amounts imposed upon
' " n by high tariffs have been
extracted IrtfrnT them. They
are dragging out a miserable
existence for the benefit of the
general noyes and hurrahing
