From Baltimore.
We learn from a gen
tleman just returned from
Hamden, that a telegram an
nouncing the endorsement of
Greeley by the National Dem
ocratic Convention at Balti
more, had just been received.
This is the only news received
from the Convention up to the
hour of going to press.
A singular incident happen
ed yesterday on the 5 :40 r. M.
north on the Hocking "Valley
railroad. While the train was
in full motion, an immense
cloud of bees suddenly swarm
ed into the cab of the engine,
and alighted upon the astonish
ed engineer and fireman, ccf
ering them completely from
head to foot. For a few min
utes the air was vocal with the
tune of "Shoo Fly!" and there
was some vigorous exhibitions
of gymnastic exercise . within
that cab. After a brisk fight,
the insects were finally driven
off. Strange to say, neither of
the paities were stung.
Liberal. The candidates
for office are generally liberal.
One of the candidates before
the primary election in this
county has subscribed for six
copies of the McArthur Enqui
rer. This is right. Come in
with the names. We shall see
to it that all the candidates
who receive the nomination
shall be triumphantly elected.

A Few Words About the
Railroad.
There has been considerable
feeling gotten up between
some persons in this township
in regard to the question of
the proposed , railroad tax,
which, in our opinion,' is all
wrong. The subject should
be freely discussed by those in
favor of and those opposed to
the tax, without any ucjeind-
ness or personalities. . We are
all neighbors; our interests are
to a certain extent identical;
and what is good tor farmers
is beneficial for tho town peo
ple, and what' injures either
party h injurious to both.
We lire sure that no fnrmer
in tliis'township would refuse
a form nny, price it' he could
i i,i v for it iu 'tHif.y years.
He woulil not, think . of the
debt, but mighty sm.hi -"go for
tin ib'cd. !iy vot'mir HAIL
111) AD YES, you will in less
than 20 yea ra make, on the in
creased prices ot your etock,
grain, etc., enough to purchase
a farm and pay for .it, while
the value ot the farm you now
mvn will nerhans be doubled.
Yote Railroad Yes, if you
want to secure wealtn ana
nrnsnentv. Remember that
all the money will be expended
in Elk Township; it will all go
on the tax duplicate to assist in
IpRsfininp- vour taxes. You
will not pay one cent of tax
nor interest until tle uonas
are issued for work Jdone, and
then only the interest for five
years, after which you will pay
on the principal, and the value
of the road will add greatly to
the tax duplicate and assist in
paying the principal. Come,
farmers; come everybody. " Let
us have a line of railroad run
ning North and South through
our county!
, The nest State election will
be held in North Carolina, on
the first of August. . The can
vass is waxing warm. At a
recent meeting whilst Judge
Settle was speaking for 'the
Administration, an- American
flag was pelted. The Grant
papers have made a great mil
abaloo over this occurrence and
have rung' the changes on its
attrocity, -in first -class bun
combe style. The fact is care.,
fully eliminated from this state
ment.'however, that the flag,
though of the national design,
was a little political affair with
the names of Grant and Wil
son printed ou it, and that this
political character was the sole
cause of the pelting.
The conservatives, though
rhev have all the moneV and
political influence and office
holdiDg interest of the Admin
istration arraved against them,
are making a good fight, and
are hopeful of the result. Ihe
latter will be awaited with in
terest.
The Liberal and the Demo-
nratic State Conventions of Il

Ex-Gov. Koerner, a Liberal,
was nomm ated as the joint can
didate for Governor, while the
State officers were about equal
ly divided between Democrats
and Liberals. a The proceedings
were harmonious, while the en
thusiasm was immense. The
resolutions of the Democratic
convention of course instructed
for Greeley.

The Office-Holders' Nomination.
The nomination of Grant
at Philadelphia was receiv
ed in this city with as lit
tle enthusiasm and as ranch
unconcern as we have ever seen
exhibited on a like occasion.
A band of music in the square
attracted a small crowd of boot
blacks, news boys and others
who delidit in anv kind mu
sic from a hand organ to a full
brass band. When the news
came that Grant was the can
didate, the brass cannon was
run out and belched forth the
usual number of explosions on
such occasions and then all was
quiet. There was no rejoicing,
no hand shakinzs. no conzratu-
latior.s with each other, Iicpub-
leans outside ot the ring leei-
ing that the nasty dose pre
pared for tWin was beinsr for
ced down their throats by the
federal officials. In the street
ears, at the IjoJ.els and other
places of public resort, the
nomination was scarcely men
tioned, and then in the same
don'-care-a-cuss sort of way
that a sea-sick man rnanifests
when recommended to eat fat
nork as a cure. Ihere was
some little interest manifested
dnrinff the dav on 'the Vice
Presidency ; fyuf; wljpu e news
came, that Wilson was nomina
ted Repnblicans were too sick
to express pleasure or displeas
ure. The whoje thing was
looked upon as a put up job,
with which the mass of the Re
publican tax-payers liad no
thing to do. Cleveland Plain

Butler's Opinion of Grant.
BAY VUE, NEAR LANESVILLE, MASS.,
August, 25, 1867.
"My De4r SjR I have
read vour letter to Mr. Smith
on the proposed nomination of
want with much rnterest.
Its criticisms on Grant's ca
reer are just, But what will
you do? You can not get it,
or anything else concerning
Grant that is not laudatory
published. And why? Bet
cause both sides are courting
him for the presidency, and so
the truth must not be told.
We are, I fear, to try the ex
periment again that we did
with Johnson; that is, nom-i
nate a man for supposed avail
ability, without knowing his
principles or fitness. Grant's
selection will be a misfortune,
because it will put in a man
without a head or heart, indif
ferent to human suffering and
impotent to government.
Respectfully yours,
BENJ. F. BUTLER."
It is understood that th Bal
timore and Ohio railroad com
pany will extend the Newark,
Somerset and Straitsville rail
road southward from Shawnee
City to Hamden, on the Mari
etta and Cincinnati road, a dis
tance of thirty miles. With
this extension extension com
pleted, the Baltimore and Ohio
will have a north and south
line from Sandusky to the Ohio
nvar at Portsmouth.
Tho Railroad election was
held in Ross county last Mon
day, on the question of levying
ing a tax to construct a rail
road north and south through

vote in the city was 2,100 for
and only 20 in opposition to
tne tax. i-.ee ine peopiu oi

of the office-holders' convention
at Philadelphia.
