Maine lias gone Republican
by a majority larger than that
of Inst year. Really, there's
nothing to bo surprised at in
this. "We can only wonder
that there are ;"5,00() democrat
in the State instead of ten times
as man-. The Yankee, legis
lation at the Federal capitol
puts money into the purses of
the people who live in the
patch of State?, "down east,''
and Maine gets her share of
the cash thus legislated from
the West nnd South into the
pockets of her own citizens.
Such "Republicanism'' is a
mere blind for self interest of
the grossest type. In Maine, a
democrat must be, "ipse facto,"
an honest man.
If there is a man in Vinton
county who wishes to remain
poor all his life, let him vote
the Radical ticket. If he wish
es to be taken from under the
galling yoke of heavy taxation
and sec pence, harmony and
prosperity in the land, let him
go to the polls on the 10th
day of October next and vote
the whole Democratic ticket.
The people are after the
demagogues who have been
robbing them of their public
lands, squandering their money,
and fostering corruption in ev
ery department of the federal
government. They are not to
be culled from the scent by at
tempts to dig up the fossils of
a former period. The tax pay

ses that now exist, and in which
all are vitally interested. Vote

The Republicans, with Wash
ington city as the head center
of intiigue, are conspiring by
special means to beat the Dem
ocracy in every county. . Mon
ey is poured out like water,
stolen from tho Treasury, and
used for corrupt purposes. In
some localities, ns in Crawford,
I'ike and Hocking counties,
Republicans are instructed to
nominate Democrats, and sup
port thent against the regular
ticket. In places where this
plan won't work, false Demo
crats are persuaded to' run on
independent tickets. All this
is designed to' secure the elec
tion of the iniquitous Sherman
to the Senate.
Nothing particular to record
abotft doings around town this
week.' An unusual dullness
pervades all branches of busi
ness, oixvd merchants are having
Leaks in the Treasury.
The 'taxes cblljected by the
Radical party in power at
Washington from the people
of the United States, sines the
close of the warJiave amount
ed to twentv-sven hundred
millions of dollars. Try to re
alize this enormous sum if you
can; ' -. ,

expenditures of the general
Government, less payment on
the public debt, from the be
ginning of the administration
of George Washington in 1S70
to the commencement of the
administration oft Abraham
Lincoln in 1SG1.
The truth must' come out
eventually, and just now there
is a strong prospect of devel
opements that wilji confound
the people from one end of
the country to tle other.
Col. Woods late Cljief of the
Secret Service of tlje Treasury
Department, threatens to ex
pose the public plunderers, and
the first man he strikes at is
Boutwcll, the Financial Secre
Where is the money ? Who
are the thieves ?
Secretary Bout weil's report,
made to Congress on the third
day of March last, showed that
over twenty millions of dol

Why Should a Man Be a
Because Democrats are in
favor of an honest, intelligent
administration ot the govern
Because the Democratic
party is the party of the peo
ple. Because the nation owns all
it has in greatness to the early
and judicious application of
Democratic, ideas and theories
to the administration of its
Because the Democratic
party is in favor of a Govern
ment of the people. Because
it is in favor of a plain system
of government, "void of pomp,
protecting all and granting
favors to none, dispensing its
blessing is alike upon the high
and low, the rich poor.,,
Because the Democratic par
ty is in favor of a government
not of force but principle.
Because it is not a sectional
party, but one whose principles
are alike sacred to the people
of the North. South, East and
Because it is a party opposed
to '.any kind of , tyranny over
the minds of men',,
Because the Democratic par
ty is in favor of maintaining
the General Government in the
exercise of its Constitutional
powers, and of perpetuating to
the States all their sovereign
reserved rights, and to the
people all the liberty commen
surate with the maintenance of
a sound civil government.
Democrats I the time for
action Las arrived.' You are
called upon to do your duty,
and your whole duty. The
campaign has fairly opened,
and the day of battle approach
es. If you would achieve victory,-
go to- work at once.
What is wanted is to complete
organization See to it that
this is effected. With' ifi the
day is our own.
If we elect a Democratic
Legislature, we shall havo a
U". S. Senator who will not
grab millions of dollars on a
salary of $5,000 per annum.
Vote against gNash for Sena
tor and Bay for Representative.
The leaders of tlve party in
power are trampling the, coun
try into a despotism, destroying
local self-government, laving
violent hands upon the sacred
writ of freemen, dominating our
elections, legislating for a few
rich individuals at the expense
of the workingmen and farm-
ers, squandering the lands of
the people upon private cor
porations, establishing monop
olies, exempting some from tux
and aljpthers, with Jt. .Now,,
the matter of making a change
in all of this is easy. The peo
ple have the power to change
all this at the elections to be
held this year and next. Go
to the polls on the 10th of
October, 1871, and on the days
of the State and Pres
idential elections, in 1872, and
vole against the entire gang of
robbers, squanderers, unequal
and high taxationists, thieves,
despots, and plunderers, and
then there will be good times,
low taxation, and plenty of
money. Never will there be
any relief until you vote the
crew out of power.
"We hear there is a
probability that criminal pro
ceedings will be instituted
against Christopher Columbus
Delano, for conspiracy with
Tom Scott and Simon Camer
on, to steal the Georgia State
Railroad. Some of the most
eminent men of Georgia have
the matter in hand. It would
be funny if Gov. Hayes should
get rid of one of his Senatorial
competitors through the instru
mentality of a requisition. The
way Jim Fisk captured Erie is
a small circumstance compared
to Delano and Cameron's oper
ations in Georgia.
TIic Radical speakers gen
eral noise and Benegleston for
instance do not attempt to
excuse the system which ex
empts the bondholders and
national banks from taxation
and robs the people of mil
lions of dollars each year. Not
one word have any of them to
utter in behalf of the over-burdened
farmer, merchant, me
chanic, or laborer. Not a word
in' all their bragndocio speech
es is uttered. If a Democratic
speaker or paper advocates the
taxation of wealth' so that it
shall bear its just and equal
proportion of the public bur
dens, or protest against special
legislation for privileged class
ps, monopolists and corpora
tions,, then the Radical leaders
and papers will immediately
rush to the defense of the
whole tribe of privileged indi
viduals. Vote for McCook and
all Upon the ticket with him !
Why is This?
The people can now plainly
see that it is wrong for a farmer,
worth $ 1,000, to pay taxes up
on tho same for school, town
ship,' county, State,- and other
purposes,- while the bondhold
er with his $1,000 in bonds is
permitted by a Radical law to
go entirely free of taxation.
Bill gNash and Milton Bay,
candidates for Senator and
Representative, are in favor of
this distressing system of tnxa

"A hundred meivare brought

when the same court sits at
Marion, within five miles; of the

of four-fifths of them. One
prisoner was brought three

charged with an assault and
battery upon the Biggei'stnffs.
Two' thousand dollars bail was
required ; he tendered bail and
the court refused it. After
being confined during the dog
days in a filthy jail, lit teen in a
cell eight by ten, one of the
prosecutors declares that he. is

Tho same paper goes on to give
the following specifications among
Wiley S. Walker, Esq'., a
well-known citizen of Polk
county, was forced from his
door at a moment's Warning,
leaving his wife confined in
bed, carried fifteen miles to
Rutherford jail, where lie suf
fered much for food and water,
and only escaped by giving
bail in 2,()00 to appear at
Raleigh this month. "Uncle
Wiley" is nbout seventy years
or age, and has scarcely phys
ical strength enough to sit on
a horse, and yet is charged
with midnight raiding,- whip
ping negroes, etc.
Captain CroWell Camp, a
gentleman of wealth and stand
ing, is charged by an idle ne
gro with having "Ku-Kluxed"
him, and although the Captain
proves an alibi by seven wit
nesses, he is bound in $2,000 to
appear at Raleigh.
Rev. J. T. Campbell, a Bap
tist minister in regular stand
ing, now lies in Raleigh jail.
Mr. C. was arrested at church
three several times by three
different deputy marshals, each
of whom hoped to earn his fee
for making the arrest There
is no doubt of his innocence.'
Rev. Berry Rollins, well
known all over Western North
Carolina, was arrested, bound
over to a later date, and put to
great trouble, expense and' in
dignity before his final release.
Jonathan Whitesides,-a gray
haired confederate, who left a
leg at Petersburg, now lies in
Raleigh jail, charged with Ku
Kluxing, etc. When the deaf
nnd dumb and blind are taken
in the net of midnight raiding,
Mr. Whittside and his crutch
ought to be indicted, but sure
ly not until then.
N. Thorne, E--q., an' aged
and much esteemed gentleman,
