Our Candidate for Congress.
As will be seen by reference
to the report of the Congress
. lonal Convention, Hon. Samu
el. A. Nash, of Gallia county, &
Liberal Republican, was nomi
nated by acclamation to repre
sent this district in Congress.
Mr. Nash comes of a good fam
ily, and is the brother of J udge
Simeon and Senator Wm.
Nash of Gallipolis. He loca
ted at Gallipolis in 1846, and
has been engaged in the prac
tice of law, being one of the
most prominent members 'o
the Gallia bar. ' '
Mr. Nash is 49 years of age,
and a man of decided ability
Possessed of great intellect, a
srood speaker, a sound reason
er, a deep thinker, and a well-
read gentleman, ne is tue man
to meet Bundy in the present

Prosecuting Attorney for Gal
lia county; being elected by a
handsome majority, nis asso
ciation with the Republican
party dates from the demise of
the old Whig party.
In his speech accepting the
nomination he acquitted hm
self well, and convinced a
, crowded house .that if earnest
uess would win the race, we
would be ultimately victorious.
We have great reason to be
lieve that Mr. Nash will poll a

At the Convention of Dem

of the 11th Congressional Dis
trict, which convened at Ports

Gunning, Esq., of McArthur,

character, who is heart and

revolutionize the country, and

Bingham Squelched.
Tho notorious John A. Bingham, one of the
murderers of poor Mrs. Surrntt, was squelched
in the 10th District Radical Convention, which
assembled on Tuesday of last week In Mint dis

'
The Grantites hold a Little
Convention!
HOMER "EXHORTS!"
The McAvthur Ring Gain a
Victory Over Wilkesville
and Little Knox!
A Ticket "Fixed Up" to suit
a Few "Tricksters."
That County Convention, In the Interest of
that Grant who swindled the Mayor of Washing,
ton out of twenty flve thousand in a bouse trade,
was held at tho Court House, In this town, on
Monday last, In about tho, same manner stated
horoinbefore. Tho whole thing was a "set up
Job," as a good many of tho "persons oppos
ed to the bargains, sales and Intrigues of polit
ical tricksters and disappointed ofuce-seclters"
who camo to town early Monday morning to
represent their townships in the Convcntioni
were very quick to observe After tho tolling
of tho Court Houso bell two times wo went
"into Court," expecting to see the priucipal
soats lull, but firemen only were sitting all In
a row on just one sent, wishing and looking for
others to occupy the numerous scats. In a
short timo obout forty delegates and some twen
Grantltes who dwell in tho village and the
arithmetic boy from Wilkosvillo, together with
nbout thirty Democrats cntorcd and filled up
the scats outside the bar. Tho exercises were
opened by Gen. Haryey Wells. Harvey is much
ly in favor of sending ptirps, bosses and other
presents too tedious to mention herein to Grant
"notwithstanding tho increased taxes," but
still so long as the lamp holds out to burn, sin
ning Harvoy may flee from the sight of those
who are making a notorious fool of him Just for
one votol But Harvey struck the "key note" to
tho assembly by stating that Mr. Jones could
actus Chairman; which spread like wild-fire
all around among tho 8510 delegates. It tick
led them because they didn't have any one else
that could "fill tho bill." Jones know he was
'ithelr Moses." Slowly he moved inside the
bar to a chair. lie began to talk to them In a
mild way, remarking as his eyes passed about
and observing so many Democrats present, that
it looked liko a Democratic meeting. Ho spoke
very slow so all could understand that he meant
what he was about to remark. It was his opin
ion that tho Democrats had abandoned their or
ganization in the United States, in this State
and in tills Congressional District, but we
thought he bad forgotten that glorious news
from North Carolina, which he went to the tel-
graph office nt Hamden Inst Friday to hear.
He kept right' on talking, "making It all tip as
Ira imit BluuB.,,'1tTTtolikw, auQ was" RttCn
tivcly listened to by that portion of the audi
enco from ufnr off among the hills, who are ig'
norant of "the ways that arc dark and the tricks
that arc vain" among the slippery-tongncd "p.
litical tricksters and disappointed olHco-seek
ers" of tho Grant school who are constantly en
gaged in "bargains, sales and intrigues" to de
feat tho wishcsorthc people from tho rural (lis
tricts. Before he closed ho said the Republican
party is a hopcAil party. We didn't know what
Homer meant by that statement, unless that
demoralized party "hopes" that the Democrats
and Liberal Republicans will elect an honest
old gentleman to tho Presidency who is strong
ly in favor of one country, one yeoplc, no present
bribes, no nioro nepotism, no more stealing, no
more corruption; of rights for all, of general
and not partial amnesty, of breaking up all the
carpet-bag governments in the land, of stopping
the corruption that has boon developed in the
custom-nouses 01 jnow lorn ami M'v unoans.
and wherever there Is an opportunity offered to
steal, and of conducting the business of the
whole, country with "economy and common
sense and restoring our credit to a sound nasis."
If he did not mean that, wo are in hopes that it
will be tho result of tho election this year any
how, lielore taking his sent ho gave notice that
the selection of a Secretary and an Assistant
Secretary was necessary. John Miller thought
Rapcr ought to write this "cut and dried" busi
ness of the convention down, but Rnper would
not do it then, and no body had the nerve to tell
him he was the proper fellow to write the thing
iip as completely as N. P. Ranks In his letter
Inst Wednf'silnv. endorsing and favorint- the
election of Greeley. E. N. Barnhill thought he
had a fellow who would come down to the
scratch, but he missed it in telling the folks that
w.j. Kfinncits was just men out or employ
ment. William wouldn't do it, II. C. Hobbins
concluded John Miller might record tho things
that wore about to come to pass. John went In.
Ir. Cline reminded Ma or Mitchell that he could
assist in "conducting the business with economy
and common sense." Tho Major wasn't in fu-
vor of "rising up regardless of party affiliation"
to assist. General Wells put in airnin: he knew
who would do it; he railed out Nathan Wilcox.
Nathan went to the front. General Wells then
looked as nlrasintr as Dnnford when he beat
Bingham in the nomination for Congress last
week. The King was ready then to carry out
tho lirocrainnio tirevlouslv adouted In stores.

slowly so as to give tho candidates for Sheriff
and dork, who were lielng choked off, time to

Committees and an adjournment until after

A Committee of three on order of tho Busi
ness wero appointed, pursuant to a motion, con
sisting of E. N, llamhill, Ksq. Canney, and G.
T. Smith. This completed the Committees.
The delegates were requested by Knper to
to send their credentials to Jones' Law otlloc.
No objection made. It made no difference
where they were sent one place being Just
as good as another, because the Ring had al
ready fixed it to suit tho conductor of the Grant
organ. If the credentials needed amending, the
law omce was the u ore to have It ilonn in a
sleek style, satisfactory to the "political trick

It will be seen by the official proceedings of
the Congressional Convention held at Ports
mouth last Thursday that Bavusl A. Nash, a
Liberal Republican of Gallipolis, was nomi
nated for Congress by acclamation. The Con
vention was composed of Democrats and Llboril
Republicans, who have united in a common
cause. Mr. Xabh Is a lawyer of ability, a fine
speaker, a logical reasoner, and a man of incor
ruptible Integrity. Ho, made an able and elo
quent speech, accepting the nomination, and
spoke nobly for the cause for which he is en
listed. The nomination by the Democrat and
Liberals of the new 11th district is a gratifying
compliment to him; and tha paopla, should he be
elected, and there Is a very fair prospect pf bis
election by a handsome majority, would have an
honest, straight-forward. representative a man
of tho people, a man identified with the Interests
of the people. - He favors a change In the pres
ent system of government. This ohange Ulobe
effected through the consolidation and union of
the men, whether heretofore colled Democrats
or Republicans, or any other name, who are men
of progress, devoted to the best Interest of tne
country. This organization, no matter what the
Grantites may term it, Is the party that will
sweep the country. The corrupt clogs and drags
of the Grant Administration must get out of
the way, or be crushed. Work ror hash I vote
for him 1 1
