I his bill is so manifestly un
just that honest Republican
journals all over the State are
condemning it. Here is what
he Bucyrus Journal thinks of

for it:
Knaves and TitUMrs.

appears to be like a game of
euchre, where there are an
equal number of knaves on
both sides; but in this instance
the Republican knave3 being
the right color, black aud un
blushing, force the game.
The disgraceful Plan to so re-
district the State, that although
the two parties are equally di
vided, yet the Republicans se
cure fifteen representatives out
of twenty, has passed the
louse. We care not who is
hurt; the man that can defend
such a thing is a political
knave, unfit to be trusted with
he interests of a groat politi
cal party. .
buch a policy is disgraceful,
demoralizing and destructive.
No sensible Republican can
approve such a political rob-
oery oi me opposite party, anu
no honest man can support it.

ao ineir create oe it recora-
ed, that Messrs. Powell and
Williams, Repuplicans, refused
to acquiesce in this iniquity.
The fellows who voted for it
must possess such a degree of
intense moral obliquity, that in
crowd in the dark, no man s
property would be safe, for it
would be less crime to steal a
watch or a few paltry dollars,
ban to hand down to other
rascals hereafter the political
precedent of its being fair to
steal the right of representation
from at least halt a million of
people.
Tub Portsmouth Times calls
upon the Democratic counties
composing tne new seventh
Congrestional District to hold
their conventions in Ports
mouth. Although not in the

convenient for allthe counties
and has better accommoda

section. A pledge to the ef
fect that Scioto will not attempt
dictate nominations will
probably secure the first Con

bre the recent "strike" in the
Savage mine, at Virginia,
whereby an immensely valua
oie vein or mineral was un
earthed, he had decided to sell
his three hundred .shares of
Savage stock, which had fallen
to $69, and was still declining.
ie accordingly set out for the
exchange, but the thought of
the ruin that was impending
led him to take a glass of whis
ky to cheer him in his misery.
This led. to another and anoth
er till he became blind drunk.
Then he slept calmly 21 hours;
then awoke, and rushed to the
exchange, expecting to find
his stock worth about 50 cents
on the dollar. What was his
astonishment when, on looking
at the bulletin board, he found
that Savage was worth $165
per share! Since then the
same stock has risen to $310.

Among the various rumors

for some one in the place of
Grant is one in which 1,000
men of the Republican party
offer to give $1,000 to General
Grant if he will withdraw from
the contest. A New England,
man, well known, (and one of
the aforesaid band of 1,000,

Grant. ' Such is the story as

We hear a good deal nowa
days about what the Radical
party have done in the South
since the closing of the rebell
ion under the so-called recon
struction laws of Congress. In
order to show what reconstruc
tion under the management of
carpet-baggers and scalawags
have done we publish the fol
lowing exhibit of the debt of
the ten Southern States in 18G0
and contrast it with their pres
ent indebtedness. This exhib
it is made by the minority of
the committee on Southern af
fairs and shows the extent of
the recklessness with which the
people of these States have
been robbed. There is no
parallel in the history of the
civilized world of the corrup
tion practiced:

Of this exhibit the commit
tee says:
In this fearful account no
notice whatever has been taken
of the debt contracted during
the war, as all indebtedness in
aid of the rebellion was repu
ated by the fourteenth amend
ment to the Constitution.
And it is to maintain in of
fice men whose villainy and
robbery has thus overwhelmed
the people of whole States
with debt, that military des
potism and the rigors of mar
tial law are resorted to un
der the enactments of partisans

A Big Fight.
Forty thousand office holders
fighting for their bread and
butter are not giving up their
places without a contest. No;
if every voter , in the United
States were to sign a petition
asking thera to give ' np their
positions, they would not- do it
without a fight, and a big fight
at that. The people want a
change they demand a change
ana they will have a change,
of officials. Neither party
usages nor party conventions
will be allowed to longer stand
in the way. Three thousand
federal office holders located in
Ohio will do their utmost to
re-elect Grant, but their efforts-"
will avail them not. The tax
ridden people of Ohio will
serve a notice on them next
October that they (the people)
have selected a new set of men
to handle the public money.
