Do You Hear That Boys!
Jlotiroc county promises to give to
Follet, the Democratic nomineo for
Cotioress in this District, 2.50') ma
jority over Plants, the Padical candi
!at. It is said that Plants' vote- in old
Monroe will ho about n linker's dozen.
Old Democratic Monroe, sent more
than 1 ."00 of her boy3 into the war to
put down the rebellion. Scarcely any
these soldiers will support Plants.
They do not like his votes in Congress.
Ho thinks loo much of the darkey "tind
fugloctsor postpotu s tho interccts of
white man.' rifitiU thinks tho
negro troops were the best soldiers in
the service. The Monroe boys know
better than that, and now talk strongly

Things are Working.

This Movement, sustained and sup
ported ns it is, by the flower of the
Union Army, by the real live men of tho
volunteer service, must and will have
a powerful influence in shaping and
directing political events. In their call
they say '-they would rather vote with

Equalizing Bounties.
The Pudical-liepublican party has a
two-thirds majority in both brunches
of tho present Congress. For proof of
this fcUiiement we refer to tlio votes on
President Johnson's veto messages.
This very hottest Congress under
took, among many other things, to
equalizo bounties among noldiers. At
tho tail end of an eight months
session they voted :
1st. To pay themselves ?",000 per
session an increase of t1, 000 per scs
sion over and above, the pay they were
. . j ,, ,
to receive when elected. Each mem-
bcr, therefore, receives 8 1,000 extra
paj' for about eleven mouths absence
from homo.
2d. To the negro they voted a bounty
of ?300 declaring at tho timo that
they were tho best troops in the service.
3d. To the white boys, who berved
the country faithfully for the term of
three yours or during the war, cat
jnr ' bard tack and sow belly," they,
in their generosity, donated tho sum of
a? 100 only.
Look at this fstalementof the casts :-
Congressman, $5,000.
Negro, $300.
White Boy. $100.
Vc would likfl to know what Honor
able Tobias A- Plants,' tho Radical enn
didato for Congress in this District,
wdio is now asking tho votes of the
Roldieti boys to send him back ngniii to
Congress, will sny to this exhibit; of the
disinterested patriotism of the Kadical
Congress. 1 ,
I' Plants voted for such a law he
dionM bo discarded by every honc sV
and fair minded voUt in the District.
And if Plants seized and carried nwny
mid deposited in hi" cnpticioiw pocket
the Si. 000 extra pay, allowed him by
this law, no man who pays taxes1, di
rectly or indirectly, should countenance
fcueh plundering of tho public treasury.
Every voter should mi -e his vt.iceloud
and long utrainst Tl;:i:; A. Plants
k Co.
Toby Plants' fi ieiids are silent and
mum on this plundering trtmsietioti
of their Padical Congress. How will
or can they justify, before tho honest,
impartial voters of this District, the
fact that Plants pocketed the extra pay.
being ?l,tMt) more money than he
agreed he would take at the lime of
his election ?
How can or dare they look the white
soldier in the face and justiiy the vote
giving to thenegro soldier f-IJOlt bounty,
and putting the white boy oil' with the
pitiful nun of only 8100?
This is what they call "equalizing
bounties." Just look at it :
$100, White Boy.
$300, Black Boy.
$5,000, Plants.
Plant, we take it. will tu'vcr'consent
to rcveiKO Ihe order ofthie sums, and.
$5,000 to White Boy.
$300 to Plants.
$100 to Negro.
No indeed. Plauts will never agree
to that. He thiuks too much of him
self and of tho negro to submit to Mich
an arrangement of tho pay tigurcs.
Good I us.
AVe clip tho following morsels from
the 31arion Democrat :
Andy Johnson was tlio Moses of the
negro f .ra while. Ho is now life wiiit'j
man's Moss, as tho white man needs
him most.
Tho Pcpiiblicaii papcrsare filled with
slang agaiu.st Andrew Johnson because
ho is u tailor. A tailor President is us
good its a rail-splitter, and wc think n
go:xl deal better.
Andy is a good tailor. Ha "hems"
the Ihnlicals iu, imd ' sows them ti)''
then 'fells" them and "jiresses them
down." Hurrah for "Ve Tailor man !"
The Pcpublie.uis have a good deal to
say iiow-a-tlays about Mr. Sewnrd'H
bell. It will ring for some of the Pc
publicanu if the- don't abandon their
treason and disunion. That's what they
are a ''raid of.
Priiig the Slates into the Union, and
put the Jacobins out of Congress :
'I),iwn willi the tniitnrn, nml
Up with tho Sturj."
Johnson is redeeming; his promise
to make treason odious. JTe has ren
dered Stevens, Wade and Sumner as
odious as men can bit. Andy does what
he says.
If there is anybody in Perks'eounty
who thinks Andrew Jackson is still
President ho won't miss it much. The
two Andrews are so mveh alike that
we can't see the dirh i jii .e.
Tho Pepublicans might i.t.t to be so
unrelenting to the South, i s tYy will
stand in need of pardon themselves us
soon as tho Democracy get into power,
and that will be before long.
;.j" The old Federalists, when they
go courting the votes of those fyrwhoiit
the j- hae little respect, do so very
awkwardly. Gov. Oglosby essayed
his hand ou the Irish, in his speech to
the Fenians at Chicago. Jlu said to
them: -I am glad lo see that at last
a g!.i-s of whisky will not buy your
voles." As much Us to tell them such
had not been the case heretofore.
Thud. Stevens, iu a speech tit Lan
caster, Ponn., said: "We ureinlluenced
too much by thoso porsuns from for
eign lauds, who, while iu search of
freedom, deny that blesncd boon to
them who are their equals." That is.
iho negroes are tho equals of tho Ger
mans and Irish that make this country
their home.
They may mako votes in that wav,
though wo think otherwise.
Ciy-llow truthfully says "a leading
Republican paper the Springfield.

rebels, and all who have been rebels,
as if neither repenteiicc, expiation nor

Radicals, with Thud. Stevens, Forney
& Co., would consign all to tho "peni
tentiary of hell," and devote the en
tire South to tho black population, as
the only "loyal" people fit to inhabit
it. It is easy to see when wo shall have
a restored Union under the rule of the
Radicals.
A Historical Remineiscence-The
Words of a Pariot.
The cll'ort which was mndo nt Phila
delphia to restore tie. old relations of
amity that used lo exist between fho
StntcR, reminds us of ono of tho most
bnlliunt episodes in the career of Ptiii
iel Webster, in bisSrietnorable reply
to Mr. Hnyne, in To.'lO, the great orator
of New England was especially happy
in his allusion to ISontli durelinu, the
homo of his antagonist, and then, as
now, estranged froV.i, her Northern
sisters. Mr. Webster unlike the Radi
cals, did not pour oil upon the flames
of strife. Ho did not sci k, as they do,
to widen the chasm of discord. On
the contrary, with a burst of cloquciico
that overwhelmed his opponent, and
in the most feeling Mid touching man
ner, he invoked the spirit of cordiality
and harmony that once prevailed be
tween Massachusetts and South Caro
lina. II i3 words, w hich for rhetorical
beauty are not excelled in Ihe English
language, inculcated the spirit thai
prevailed at Philadelphia. The friends
of the restoration of the Union 'who
put South Carolina and Massachusetts
together al Philadelphia, will thank us
for reproducing Mr. Webster's words.
He Kiid to Mr. Jt-.iyne :
' The cuio'iam pronounced on the
chnracter of iho State ol' Sout h Carolina
by the honorable gentleman lor her re
volutionary and it her merit meets my
hearty eonciirn nee J shall not ac
knowledge that the honorable member
goes before me in regard for whatever
of distinguished taknt or distinguirdied
character South Carolina has produced,
1 claim part of the honor, J partake in
the pride of her great names. I claim
them for countrymen, one and nil. The
Laureiiscs, the Wut ledges, thePinckneys
the Sumters, the Marions Americans
all w hose fame is no more to be hem
med in by Stale lines, than their talents
and patriotism were capable of being
circumscribed within the same narrow
limits. In their duv and ironcration
they served and honored the country,
ami the whole country, and their re
nown is of tho treasures of tho whole
country. Him whose honored name
the gentleman himself bears, does he
suppose me less capable of gratitude
for Ids patroitism, or sympathy forhij
suH'ering, than if his eyes had first
opened upon the light in Massachusetts
instead of South Carolina? Sir, docs
he suppose it is in his power to exhibit
a Carolina name so bright as to produce
envy in my bosom? No, sir; increase
gnuification and delight, rather.
"Sir, let mo recur to pleasing recol
lections; let mo indulge in refreshing
remembrance of tho past; kt me re
mind vou that, in earfy times, no States '
cherislied greater harmony, both of
piineij'le and feciing, than Massachu
setts end South Carolina. Would to
God that harmony might again return!
Shoulder to shoulder they went through
the Revolution, hand in hand they
stood round tho Administration cf
Washington, and felt his own great
arm lean on them for support. Un
kind feeling, if it exist alienation and
distrust are the growth, unnatural to
such soils, of a seed "principle since
sown. They are weeds, the seeds of
which that great arm noverscaltered."

Republicans on Philadelphia.
(ur Republienn . cotcmpornrien aro
emulntiitg the eonrngo of the redoubta
ble "Rol crt Acres." They are not
afraid of tho consequences of tho Phila
dclph'ii affair not thej'. They feel
that thoy are not afraid; they knovy
that they are not afraid; they can
prove that they-aro not afraid; they
are willing to swear that they are not
afraid. They aro so plucky that they
can't help telling ofrit; po -confident,
that, having -roclaiii1cd their fcourage
once, they aro not easy until they have
proclaimed it again." They never saw
anything so ridiculous as that Phila
delphia, arrangement. The humbtig
is perfectly transparent. Nobody will
be taken in by it. They can rco al
ready that it will amount to nothing.
And then, the idea of bribing men
with olliccs 1 Such a farce ! wTo think
that stubborn, surly patriots, root-and-branch
Republicans, desperate Union
men, can be drawn off from their party
by the hope of salaries and perquisites.
The idea is preposterous. Who ever
heard of a Republican deviating from
the even tenor of his way at the sight
of Ihe Treasury looming up in the dis
tance? When such an instance can be
discovered will be time enough to be
disheartened. No, the skiesatobright,
very bright indeed ; the wind sits iu
the shoulder lf their sail; never a crew
of fuch jolly clogn ; the sun shines
propitious n our voyage we begin, and
we're hound for tholugdom.
We do not know. A wicked old
cynical philosopher onco gave it ns his
opiiil.'U that nil men have, their price.
Tho venerable Archdeacon Pnley
brought his system of theology to tho
melancholy conclusion that selfishness
is the priiii'im matiiic in human ti Hairs.
Our Republican brethren when they
were building up that gigantic power
of appointment, which thej- sav is
now being used "to bribe unfaithful
ness to convictions arid treachery to the
cause mado sacred by patriotic sacri
fices," gave no heed to tho frequent
warnings they received, that they were
starling a game tit which moro than
n party could plavt No party that
ever oxistea carried corruption and
bribery to a higher degree, or employed
them moro openly than the Republi
can parly; and now if it should find
itself I'caten at its-own game, ot whom
but itself has it a right to complain?
It would lie poetic justice, to say tho
least ; and that, as somo think, is equiv
alent to providential justice. Cincin

Attempted Murder-Alleged Conspiracy
of a Wife with Negroes
to Take the Life of Her Husband.
This morning hcaringofa frightful at
lempt to murder oneof our citizens, wo
wrnttothesccnoof tho occurence, and
grt possession of the following facts from
tho gentleman himself on whom tho
murder wes attempted. Mr. Hull, the
person in question, who keeps n barber
saloon in Chestnut street, near Straw
berry, gave us the following particulars
concerning tho attempt oa his life.
Mr. Hull is a white man, aged about
forty 3'ours. His statement is as fol
lows:
"A plan was laid to murder mo for
my money by at man named Win. Par
ker (white man) and Jene Hull, my
wife. Last night when I eume home,
at a little after twelvo o'clock, I found
the light nearly out in the cellar kitch
en, where a light was usually kept. I
tli'l nol go down stairs, but went up
into my bed-room, nnd asked my wife
w hat was Iho matter with tho lamp.
and she said it was out of order. 1
I told her would go down to the
water closet. Sho followed me down,
and sho then went down stairs. When
1 rt tuned I found the light still dim
mer, and sho had gone up ttairs. 1
had turned to go up stairs, when sho
cullctl to me to go (town in the cellarto
get tho light, and I turned to go down.
The stairway into the cellar kitchen
was very narrow and dark. At tho
f iot of the stairs there is a doorway
loading into a small vault. In this
plaeo thero were two colored men con
cealed, armed with hatchets. Mr. Hull
contiiiiUH:
' I had just dosed the vault door when
I heard u slight noise inside: 1 turned,
when they jumped out, and ono of them
struck' me on tho head wilh a hatchet,
knocking mo down iu the opposed cor
ner of tho room: then, when I was
down, ho jumped and throttled Ine; ho
