THE INDEPENDENT.
M'CONXELSVILLE :
FRIDAY. . . . . lVov. lO, 18TI.
The Elections.
Election were held in twelve
States on Tnobdaj, with the fol
lowing results .
New York rave a Republican
majority of 35,000; both brunches of
the Legislature being Republican.
Sijrel carried New Tork City by a
handsome majority, and Tammany
is left out in the cold, as it should
have been lose; aeo. Tweed suc
ceeded in being electod to the Son
ate by a largely red need majority,
less than ton thousand, which was
twenty-two thousand three years
go,
Massachusetts rolls up a Inrpcly
increased majority for the Repub
licans.
Illinois gives A Republican maj
ority of 30,000. .
Minnesota gives a handsome Ee-
Zmbhean majority.
Maryland has gono Democratic
by a largely reduced majority, the
Republicans electing quite a nam
her of their candidates for the Siate
Legislature, in which body they
had not a Representative last year.
New Jersey elects a Democratic
Governor, but a Republican Legis'
laturo.
In Kansas and Michigan in the
local elections, heavy Kepnblican
gams are reported.
Virginia has gone Democratic.
Mississippi is Republican all ov
er.
Tbe returns from Arkansas are
meagre, but it has undoubtedly
added Ut the la-publican strergth
The question is, "What has be
come of the Democratic party ?".
The Pond Appointment.
We read friend Fonlke.s article,
of last week, in which be replied to
our remarks relative to Arthur
Pond '8 appointment to the Aud:t
orship, and. verily, we havo sur
Tired.
He thinks the Commissioners
thought Fond would beat servo the
people. Tend may serve the peo
pie well: we think he will. H. no
doubt, is qualified to fill tho office.
But, while this is true, there am
very many others that could do
likewise; men, too, who have lontr
been our citizens, all their lives
many of them; men who have never
held an offico, who have always
been Republicans, and who were
soldiers during the late war, and
ate thereby entitled to places of
honor and trust.
He denies that two vacancies
were created. Possibly there is a
flaw in the law, whereby Pond will
he able to hold the lucrative office of
Auditor and still be a School Ex
aminer. If such be tbe case, we
have no doubt but that he will con
tinue to hold them both; and, were
it possible, if a special act could be
passed this Winter authorizing him
to continue as Surveyor, we have
do doubt but that he woul d "accept
the situation.
He charges us with saying that
Pond bits held omce ever since he
came to the County, and then rep
resents that we falsified. What we
said was that Pond has been an of-
ficer all the time he has been a cit
izen of this County, and what we
said is true. There is a difference
between a resident and a citizen.
One may be a resident of a place
and not a citizen. Pond was a can
didate for Surveyor before he was
a citizen, that is before he had
been in tbe County long enough to
have a right to vote, and he was
elected and took his position, and
has held one or two offices all the
time since.
Ho says the Commissioners con
sulted the people. If they did, they
fr,ne so fa very little time. Mr.
McGrewdied on Sunday, and the
appointment was made on the next
day, Monday. The Commission
ers who live in the country, were
notified of Mr. McGrow's death on
Monday, and as soon as they could
all be gotten to town, they locked
themselves up in tbe Auditor's of
fice, and after talking tho matter
over for about a half hour, they
made the appointment.
He says, in alluding to our ref.'
erence to the Court noose Ring,
"We must either conclude that the
Ring made a tool of Mr. Niceswnn
Cer, or that it was not a Ring ap
pointment at all." This is a more
sensible conclusion than we had
any idea our friend Jesse could art
rive at. Mr. Nice wander may
have been honest enough in what
he done, undoubtedly he was, but
nevertheless be was but a tool in
the hands of others. The Ring, un
doubtedly, owes Mr. Niceswanger a
debt of gratitude, and he should bo
rta candidate next year.
The people of New Orleans have
become alarmed at an alleged con
spiracy to deprive them of their
real estate, which has been held
from generation to generation un
der ancient grants from the Span
ish and French govereraents. These
titles have, for sixty-nine years,
been considered good, without con
firmation by the United States.
Under a recent act of congress, how
ever, it is alleged that where these
grants have not been confirmed, or
where the surveys cannot be found
in the proper office, the land belongs
to tbe United States, and is subject
to entry by the homestead law. A
register and receiver of public lands,
it is reported, have been appointed
by tbe United States government,
and these officers are proceeding to
investigate titles with great activi
ty. .When no survey can be found
public notice is given, and if the
ed title, a patent is issued, subject
ing it to entry under the homestead
law. The whole town of Carrollton,
one of the out laying villages of
New Orleans, it is reported, has
been confiscated by means of this
inequitable enforcement of tbe rigid
provisions ?f an act of Congress.
A keqro woman of highly re
spectable character haa been arres

TROUBLES OF THE DEMOCRACY.
I
In looking over our Democratic
ATtthannna a finI an.K nlrta wn
v.. f".-,
pcrsas tho Cincinnati Enquirer and
tbe Columbus Statesman to be in
great trouble, and we suppose that
their agitation must be transmit
ted to tbe nltra Democratic mind.
This does not grow out of the
efforts of the St, Louis Republican
and Frank Blair to disband the
Democratic party, for these papers
are of the blind sort that believe in
fighting if ocly to have tbe privi
lege of getting their heads well
punched; but it arises irom one of
the bobbies that annually beset the
Enquirer.
The Enquirer, ns all who havo
watched Ohio politics of late years
well know, annually comes forth
with some new man as "tho man ol
tho day," able to carry the Demo
cratic craft to a harbor of victory
and safety, and as often the man
proves a failuro and the craft is
swumped by tbe breakers.
This Fall, in view of tho coming
Presidential contest, tho Enquirer
is on hand as usual, and flics tho
name of Colonel Thomas A. Scott,
Chief Manager of tho Pennsylvania !
Central Rail Road, as the man un
der whom to marshal the Democrat
ic host, and to finally capture the
Presidential chair and all the "fat
things" that pertain thereto.
- Whereupon, the Columbus .Stifes
man, of the 2nd, speaks out as fol
fows :
'The Cincinnati Enquirer soems
to be badly frightened, and in a fit
of desperation cosies out in a doub
le-Ieuded column editorial in favor
of Tom Scott (beg pardon. Colonel
Thomas A. Scott), Chief Manager
of the ureal Pennsylvania Couti
nenlnl Kailroad Monopoly, as tho
Democratic candidate for President
next year.
The Enquirer t principal nrgu
mcnt in favcr of Mr. Scott is his
availability in Pennsylvania and
other oUlc-a where bis monopoly
has gobbled un railroads. Sifted
down, this simply amounts to a dec
laration that tbe Democratic party
w in such desperate straits it raus
put itself nnder the protection cf
tho most unscrupulous and potver
fnl railroad corporation in the
Union, hoping thereby to be car
ried successfully through the eloo
tion, not by tbe power of its princi
pies, but by the lobby and money
power of Tom Scott's railroad com
binations. 'Mr. Scott is strong in
Pennsylvania and will carrv it.'
Granted, but it will not be because
he is a Democrat, or a Republican,
or an independent statesman line
Carl Scburz; but simply because he
is the head of a monopoly that con
trols by money and lobby power the
politics of the State, acd has bought
up and used its Legislature every
vear for the past twenty years.
This is all there is of Scott's power
in any State or soction of the U
nion It fo a power based on cor
ruption and IsgiBlative bribery.
Jim Fisk, Jay Gould, and Vandor
bilt are great men in Near York by
virtue of precisely the samo influ
ences that make Scott powerful in
Pennsylvania or elsewhere. But
let the question come to a popular
election and it will be found that
the very reasons that make these
men powerful in corrupt legislative
bodies, will cause tbe people to
discard thorn with loathing, and
contempt for a party that attempts
to carry them. So much lor Mr.
Tom Scott's availability.
"Tbe idea of selecting this Mr.
Scott to 'cleanse the Augean sta
bles' at Washington is a profound
joke, and as to tho Enquirer's dec
laration that 'his honorty is prov
erbial through Pennsylvania,' we
have this to say : Ilia personal
honesty may be, but from the Ohio
line to the Delaware our friend will
find his name tho synonim of legis
lalive corruption among well in
formed public men of both parties,
as well as tbe mass of tho people?.
This is a fact that ennnot be dis
counted. As to Mr. Scott's politics
the Pittsburgh Post claims him as
Democrat, and Mr. Forney, in
the Philadelphia Press, as a Repub
lican, Both are partly right and
partly wrong. He gravitate tow
ards either party just as the neces
sities of his immense monopoly in
terests require His politics aro
summed up in tho Pennsylvania
Central Combination, and the half
dozen land-grabbing rods in tbo
West, of which he is the master
spirit He uses parties as a mere
convenience.
"The Enquirer's formal presenta
tion of Mr. Scott's invites
a
of
of
a
d
of
discussion, but we have no idea that
its notion will 'tako,' save as an
emetic The trouble with, the En.-1
quirer 'w that it is frightened out of
all sense of propriety, and in its fit
of desperation has hit upon Tom
Scott as the political sensation of
the hour. We ought to be thank
ful it is not Jim Fisk. If the Dem
ocratic party is to be put m train
ing for tho uses of the great rail
road monopolists, monster corpor
ations, and unscrupulous land
grabbers of the nation, we shall
concludo its mission is about ended
and the sooner it is disbanded the
better. If this crisis is upon us it
merits the application of a half bush
el of uitro-glycerine."
Tbe Statesman's recommendation
0f an application of a half buehel of
nitre-glycerine, is good. It would
save to the country a great deal of
paper, ink and prosy speeches, and
do so harm whatever. But the
Statesman, not content with the a
bove expose, in its issue of tbe 3rd,
follows the matter up by saying :
"If the fact that Mr. Thomas A.
Scott is the head and moving spirit
of the most enormous corporate
monopoly in America, does not af
ford tbe Enquirer sufficient reasons
for supporting him tor the Presi
dency, let it take into tbe most
prayerful consideration that he was
ene of the chiefs of tbe .land-grab-
, burs at the lust session oi copgrtws,
and prominent in too A or thorn ra
cifio grabbers ring, whose plunder
schemes were opposed with such en
orgy and eloquence by Scnttor
Tburman and the Democratic mem
bers of Congress generally. If this
will not answer, the Enquirer's
mind may be set at rest by tho fur
ther fact that Mr. Scott is a Pro
tectionist of tbe most nltra pattern
is interested in rolling mills, and
has views that coincide with Pig I
ron Kelly on the tariff q'teslion
Had not our contemporary better
'whistle down brake
We ask any honest Democrat ll
ho can swallow this "departure" of
the Enquirer? The lust campaign,
all will recollect, was waged against
the Republican parly, because of its
support of R. R. monopolies, land
grabbing schemes, &c. Now we
find the Enquirer, the mouth piece
of the Oluo Democracy, advocating
tenacionkly the nomination for tbo
Presidency of tho chief of tbe great
est R. R. monopoly in all the coun
try, and one, too, who was promi
nent in the great Northern Pacific
land grabbing swindlo.
The twists and turns, anil com
plete summersaults, that am being
taken by tho Democratic leaders,
we shou'd think would drivo every
honest man from the party. Think
of it ! Here is a paper, the Enquirer,
that less than three months- ago
was calling on you to vote against
the Republican parly bcca-ixc of its
protective Tariff policy, "taxing the
poor for tho benefit of tho rich," mn
king the many suffur that the a few
might roll in wealth and case," and,
now, this same paper is advocating
the nomination, for the highest of
fice in the gift of the people, of a
man of the most ultra Protective
Tariff views.
EASTERN OHIO RAIL ROAD.
A McConnelsville correspondent
of tho Cincinnati Gazette, over the
signature of -Sckx'' says of thti a
bovo road :
"This contemplated road is about
aovenry miles in length, and pnsscs

the above named point. u.d nass-
ng down the Stillwater Vallcv m
Tuscarawas and Harrison counties
to Freeport. in the latter county,
thence to Londonderry, and on
through the rich, beautiful, and for-
tile Wil;screek Volley, to Antrim,
Winchester, Washington. Sencca-
ville, and Cumberland, in Guornsev
County, and through the hills and
valleys of Morgan County to the
Muskingum river at McConnelsville.
At an early day it is intended to
push this lino of road into tho vas,
coal and iron fields of Perry Coun
ty a distanee of from sixteen to
twenty milcH from this point.
"oomo tJ.u,UUU was fpenton this
ine about fourteen or fifteen years
ago, when it was knowni as tho
Pittsburg, Maysville & Cincinnati
Kailroad, and in many places the
road bed was nearly completed.
while at most all points of tbe line
great amount of work was done,
The enlerprisu failed previous to the
financial crash of 1857, superinduced
oy mismanagement and profligacy,
and until recently, has been in a dor
mant state. Ibo old road has now
at a
passeu tiuo tne nation oi a new
company, who havo a clear and un
incumbered title to the same, and op
erating under a new charter, as the
Eastern Ohio Kailroad. Company,
are cnaeavor:ng to push this work
forward to an early completion.
'With very litto t-ffart, about
$135,000 has already been subscrib
ed, and as only $350,000 or 8400,000
will be needed to complete the road
bed along the cntiro lice cast ami
north of tho Muskingum river, it is
believed tho project is m a healthy
condition, and it will 60011 form one
tho numerous artcr.es of travel
within this great and enterprising
State. And 1 know that it wiil he
inestimable valne to the country
through which it passes, r.s during
great portion of the year they are
without facilities of freight and
travel, and hemmed in at their own
wryards by tbo ico and mud of

will open up to the trade and travel
