Our County Ticket.
"Which wna selected at the
Primary Election last Satur
day, will be found in the prop
er place in this paper. Wei
have only room to say this
week that the nominations for
the county offices are yery
good, and will merit the cor
dial approbation of erery Dem
ocrat in the county.
The selections were made
from a large number of the
best and most competent men
ot the county, erery Democrat
ic voter having the privilege
of going to the voting places
in the county and casting a
vote for such men' as .he desir
ed to fill the several offices.
A Liberal Republican in
Cincinnati suggests that a pa
per friendly to Greeley and
lirown should be; left at the
Liberal Republican Committee
Rooms, and that all Liberal
Republicans in the county be
requested to drop in ' as they
pass and enroll their names.
It is his opinion that a thousand
names coum ne procured m
less than a week, and the oue-
ry of tho Grantites as to who
tno .Liberal Kcpublicans are
will be very satisfactorily an
swered. We think the sug
gestion a good one. t. ;

The Blues and the Greys.
The campaign of Greeley
and Brown is beginning to de
velop some features of peculiar
interest and beauty. The
questions involved in the cam
paign, and the new attitude of
parties and many old political
opponents, are exceedingly fa
vorable for tho exhibition of
the true spirit which should an
imate a republic. Ihere 19 a
design on foot to give this
spirit form and substance and
expression more eloquent than
any form of political harangue.
A Greeley'and Brown club is
to be organized at St. Louis,
under the name of "The Blues
and the "Greys." It is not a
ward club. The membership
i9 to be drawn from St. Louis
county, and will be composed
only of men who were enlisted
in the late war on one side or
the other. Those who were in
the' Northern army will be uni
formed in blue, and those who
were in the Southern army will
wear the grey; and the blue
and grey will march side by
side in precession, an equal
number ot each, work like
brothers for a common cause,
and strike for the success of
that cause at the ballotsbox. ,
The Grant Treasurer of Aid
township, Lawrence county,
Joseph Duucan, ran off, last
April, with $1,500 of the town
ship. tunds. He was caught in
Kansas a few days age, and is
now 8leepinff in the . Ironton
jail. Poor fellow! They
ought to let him out this fall
to vote for Grant.
There was no bolt at the
Baltimore Convention as the
sick Grantites hoped and pre
dicted there would be. Gree
ley was nominated with only
two or three dissenting voices.
The opposition to Grant in
tends to clean out the Radical
party this fall.
The Hocking Valley Camp
Meeting will be held at Logan,
commencing August '22d, and
continuing one week.,.
Bundy Nominated for Congress.
The Grant Convention as
sembled at Portsmouth, last
Wednesday and after making
a few "hooks and crooks'' nom
inated Hon. II. S. Bundy for
Congress. This is a very un-?
satisfactory nomination to a
large portion of the Radicals
of the district. Some of them
"talk out loud in the meet
ing." Wo find the following
dispatch from Portsmouth, in
last Saturday's Cincinnati En
quirer: "Your roiTt'spojitlcnt lnis
been shown letters from .-ill
parts of this Congressional Dis
trict, from leading men of tlie
Liberal Republican and Dem
ocratic parties, pointing unmis
takably to the nomination . of
Colonel Norton, of Lawrence
county, for Congress. Such a
man can defeat Bundy,'and the
indications are. that he will re
ceive the nomination. Law
rence county wants a repre
sentative in the next Congress,
and she could select no better
man than Colonel -Norton.
The matter has already leaked
out here in ring circles, and
causes them much trouble, as
the gag they applied to the
Lawrence delegation created a
very bad feeling.
That grand outpouring of
the people, one night last week,
at Cleveland, in the Park, to
ratify the nomination of Gree
ley and Brown, was an aston
isher to the Postmasters, Col;
lectors of Revenue, U. S. Mar
shals and their innumerable
deputies aud hangers-on. It
indicated very clearly to them
that the contest now waged by
the omece holders against the
People, that the latter were
uppermost. The partisans ot
Grant found in that crowd last
night hundreds of men who
were formerly with them shout
ing for Grant and cheering for
the platform, that throws be
hind it the "wreck and rubbish
of worn out contentions and
by-gone feuds,"' and embodies
the needs, wants and aspira
tions of the day.
The following 'gossip about
the Massachusetts Governor
ship appears in the Springfield
"The chance of a candidate
on the Greeley side begins to
be agitated. Some of the Dem
ocrats want to nominate Charles
Francis Adams (the father);
others talk of Charles Sumner;
others of F. W. Bird, and of
General Bartlett. Ihere is lit
tle prospect of nominating ei
ther oumner .or Adams, I think;
but C. F. Adams. Jr.. mav dob-
sibly be the candidate. Prob
ably, however, the chance will
fall on Mr. Bird or General
Bartlett, either of whom would
make a good run, and against
Butler could be elected."
The Grant leaders and or
gans are dreadfully 'skeered.'
They ape alarmed at the de
velopment of the canvass in
North Carolina, Morton states
that matters look dubious in
Indiana, and they must have
money to use at once to save
the. State. He is more anxious
about the Legislature than
about anything else; for that
chooses a United State's Sena
tor in his place. Pennsylvania
is also crying for help, and in
this, as in a others, it is a cry
for money; it is 'lopey or we
are lost' from ali quarters.--Senator
Wilson says he never
saw the political horizon look
so alarmingly blue.
The Kenton Democrat Har
din County, Ohio,) published
last week a call for a ratifica
tion meeting, which is signed
by fortytwo Republicans who
declare their intention to vote
for GVeeley. It is not un
common thing to hear of a Lib
eral Republican or two about
Senator T. F. Bayard, of Del
aware, who opposed the nonii
nation of Greeley in the Balti
more Convention, has since
written a letter to the Democ
racy of Delaware urging them
to support him.
Every man in Vinton coun
ty who wants reform and econ
omv in the administration of
public affairs, will vote against
Grant and corruption. ,

Pension Agent t this
place, lit outlast week for parts
unknown, leaving-behind him
numerous creditors who deep
ly mourn his sudden departure.
Underwood came to this place
in 1860, from Cincinnati, aud
opened a law office and engag
ed in the business of collecting
and settling estates, and prose
cuting claims against the Gov
eminent for pensions, bounties,
tfce. During the. war, and up
to a recent (lite, lit- did a lnrg
amount of biisine-s in this line,
and it was thought by many
that lii.s financial circumstances
were such th;it lie. could afford
to Ik; honest, but he lias disap
pointed nil such, and demon
strated himself to be either a
poor manager or an an unscru
pulous villain. His defalcation
will not fall short of twenty
thousand dollars most of
which belongs to soldier's wid
ows and children. It is thought
by man Jhat Underwood,
when he left, had five or' ten
thousand dollars of his ill-gotten
gains in his possession.
Judge Underwood was "Loyal
al to the core," and was a "high
pressure" Grant man. So it
goes. ' .
Calling the Roll.
[From the New York Sun.]
Mr. Lincoln's first Cabinet
consisted of Messrs. Seward,
Chase, Cameron, Wells, Blair,
Smith and Bates. The two
last named are dead. Came
ron is for Grant. Chase, Wells
and Blair are for Greeley.
Where stands Governor Sew
ard? When Mr. Lincoln first be
came President there were thirty-one
Republicans in the Sen
ate. Of these Senators six are
dead, thirteen are for Grant,
ten are for Greeley, and of the
opinions of the remaining two
we have as yet no certain in
formation. We refer, to Mr,
Harris, of New York, and Mr.
Clark, of New Hampshire.
Nevertheless we are told that
the Republican party is almost
a unit for Grant. Do i.ot facts
like the above finally contra
dict this impudent assertion?
Three Cheers for the Merchant
A. T. Stewart, the richest
merchant in the world, whore
rides in New York City, and
who has heretofore been sup
posed to be in favor of the re
election of Grant, on Thursday
last, manifested a very substan
tial preference for Horace
Greeley by sending his check
for twenty thousand dollars
$20,000 to the Democratic
Executive Committee. Hur
rah for Stewart! How do yqu
feel now, Grantites? You see
that Stewart wants to got rid of
the thieves in the New York
Custom House J

licans are deserting their ranks
by more than platoons; they

country witnessed such a furore

that now exhibited fqr Cjrep

a bloody and civil strife. Ifor

Stokes has been tried for the

occupied 22 days, resulting in.

Shortly after she felt very sick
and went to the house and V' m

out leaped a large snake. Her
screams brought her father to
the spot. ll killed the snake
and threw it upon the roof.
In the morning he examined it,
found, it to be of the copper

For Pever and Ague, Intermittent Fever, -CMU
Fever, Remittent Fever, Dumb

and indeed aU tho affections whioh arise
from malarious, marsh, or miasma tio
'fl V No one remedy is louder
11 called for by the necessities of
tho American people than a
! l sure and safo euro for Fever
11 and Ague. Such we are now
- frv enabled to offer, with a porfect
M certainty that it will eradicate
v the disease, and with assur
ance, founded on proof, that no barm can arise
from its use in any quantity.
That which protects from or prevents this (lis- -order
must be of Immense service in the com
munities where it prevails, Prtventlon is bettor
than cure, for the patient escapes the risk which
be must run in violent attacks of this baleful dis
temper. This "Curb" expels the miasmatlo
poison ef Fever and Ague from tho System,
and prevents the development of the diseaso, if
taken on tho first approach of its premonitory
symptoms. It is not only tho bout remedy ever
yet discovered for this class of complaints, but
also tho cheapest. Tho large quantity we sup
ply for a dollar brings It within tho roach of
everybody; and In bilious districts, where'
Fevkr and Aoub prevails, everybody should
havo It, and use It freely, both for euro and pro
tection. It is hoped tills prlco will place it within
the reacli of alt the poor as well as the .rich.
A great superiority of this remedy over Any
other ever discovered for tho speedy and certain
cure of Iutormlttents Is, that it contains no Qui
nine or mineral; consequently it produces no
quinism or other injurious effects whatever upon
tho constitution, Those cured by It are left as
healthy as If thoy had nevor hnd the disease.
Fever and Ague is not alone tho consequence
of the miasmatlo Dolson. A ereat variety of dis
orders arise from its irritation, among which
are Neuralgia, Rheumatism, Gout, llcadacho,
Blindnoss, Toothache. Earache, Catarrh. Asth
ma, Palpitation, Palntul Affection of tho Spleen,
Hysterics, Tain in tho Bowels, Colic, Pnrnlvsls,
and derangement of the Stomach, all of which,
when originating In this cause, put on the In
termittent type, or bocome poriodlcnl. This
11 Cuhk" expels tho poison from tho blood, and
consequently cures them all alike. It is an in
valuable protection to immigrants and persons
travelling or temporarily residing In tho mala
rious districts. If taken occasionally or dully
whiletcxposcd to the Infection, that will be ex
creted from the system, and canuot accumulate
In sufficient quantity to ripen into disease.
Henoe it is even more valuablo for protection
than cure ; and few will ever suffer from Inter
nilttents if they avail themselves of the protec
tion this remedy affords.
For IAvrr tWjifaltifs, arising from torpid.
Ity of til Liver, it is an excellent remedy, stim
ulating the Liver into healthy activity, and pro
ducing many truly remarkable cures, where
other medlcaiiea fall.
