Soldiers' Re-Union.
It is sugge&ted through tho Hernld
that a Soldiers' Ke-Union tnko place
at M Connclaville, on tho 27th iust.,
Bnd tho suggestion is indorsed by
twtlvo or fourteen who have seen somo
kervico in tho luto war.
Wo have noticed that these soldier
ro-unions are appointed to take place
just beforo the election. There is some
ulterior design in this movement, when
wo know tho fact that the managers
and getters up of these re-unions are
tho political hacks and viro workers
about touuly 6euts. Very fow soldiers
rcaly have anything to do with them
in their inception.
In this juncturo, in tho political
prospects of Radicalism, it is found
necessary inai somcining biiouiu Lie
dono by tho leaders of the party to re
tain and hold on to power and the
spoils of office.
Some of tho political leaders of Radi
calism in this county, who would not
scruple ''to steal the livery of heaven
to worship the devil in," and, who, to
savo themselves from utter rout and
defeat at tho approaching election,
would like very well, just now, to make
the soldier one of their tools to accom
plish their cuds.
Wo would Buggcst to our patriotic
friends lately iu arms, that if they are
desirous to effervesco their patriotism
to some purpose, that all of vs soldiers
go up to Cleveland on tho 17th hist, to!
the great national ingcathcring of
Union soldiers and sailors. There tee
will meet with thousands of bravo of
ficers, soldiers and sailors, who fought
and bled to put down the rebellion, to
restore tho Union and enforce the Con
stitutiou and tho laws over rebel States.
Thero we can enjoy a re-union worthy
a brave, a patriotic and a benevolent
man. Thero we can "fight our buttles
over again" to some purpose, and for
tho benefit of posterity. Thero wo
will find nearly all of our bravo and
gallant officers, tho mention of whose
names would bring a thrill of pleasure,
respect and a shout of approbation from
every unselfish and disinterested sol
dier. This Convention of soldier
and sailors at Cleveland will not bo
ono of our mean, cowardly,6kulking,
political asseu.blys, gotten up by poli
ticians for.mcrc political purposes, to
bo addressed by somo slang-whanging
scallawags,'who found it convenient to
stay in the rear when there was bloody
work to do in front. It is not not up
for tho purpose of abusing, slundcring
and villifying tho Government, tho res
ident of tho people,, and the real live,
fighting generals of tho late war. It is
not got up for tho purpose of devising
ways and means to koep ten States out
of tho Union ad libitum. It is not got
up for tho purpose of making the ne
gro, in every particular, tho equal of
the white man. It is not got up for
tho purposo of remodeling and chang
ing our form of government, and mak
ing it different from whut it, wus in
tended to bo by Washington and his
co-patriot. It is not got up for the
pupose indorsing and approving the
outrageous, unconstitutional and un
called for legislation . of , tho Radical
Congress. , , , ; , , . ,
-This Convention, thia assembly of
brave officers, soldiers and sailors; who
actively partieipatod ia, the" bite war
for the suppression of the rebellion, and
who valiantly fought that thirty-six
States should compose the Union, and
not twenty-six, is cortainly worthy of
tho favorable consideration and partic
ular attention of all poople who are
loyal to tho Constitution and Union.
; How is it,, "we, would most respectfully
atdc, that In hunting up signers to this
call for a Soldiers' lie Union in il'Con
noltville, that the boarer went round,
passed by, feould not see, nor cjuld not
hear- of other Colonels,' Majors, Cap;
tains, Xieutenants, Seargcnt, or evon
privaWw, m know ofxrnnltthem
n8 to the timo find place and objects of
a soldiers' re-union ? If this had been
dono, perbapsa majority of the soldiers
not bo willing to turn the meet
' mg into a political pOW-WOW and tt
... -.it
negro-worshiping concern for the ben-
eft ftn j advantage of party.
Looking at it from this stand point,
with a manifest intention on tho part
of the leaders, to make it an exclusive
pnrtt movement, wo are satisfied that
it is nothing bnt a trick ' of political
leaders to mako out of tho demonstra
tion all they can to advance tho cause
of. negro equality and bolster up ' i
sinking cause.
No soldier having on honorable dis
charge in his pocket, and possessing
self respect and is bravo to the Union,
tho whole Union, and nothing bnt the
Union, and who intends hereafter to
vote as he fought, for "tho Constitution
as it is and th Union as it was," and
will stand by tho President in his pn
triotio effort 4 to restore tho Union
under the Constitution, vill lend him
self or give countenance, aid or com
fort to any such movement.

Plants no Negro Voting.
Hon. T. A JPlunts, the Radical candi
date for Congress, during the last session
voted to confer the right of suffrage
upon tho irvgrocs of tho District .of
Columbia. ' '
Tossibly Mr. Plants would nut do-
claro himself in favor of conferring the
right to voto upon the negroes of Ohio.
The reason for tho differunce is proba
bly this. Plants believes that a docla
rution in favor of negro voting in Ohio
would diminish his chance for a re
election; he believes that his voto in
the case of tho District of Columbiu
would not diminish his chance and per
haps ho thought such a voto would bo
a recommendation.
The people of the District of Colum
bia have no representation directly in
Congress. Every member of Congress
is therefore tho Representative of tho
people of that District. Mr. Plants
was one of their Representatives. Iu
hia votes, respecting the interior or do
mestic affairs of tho District, ho was as
much under obligation to consider tho
wishes of his District Columbia constit
uants,as ho would be, was he veiling in
respect to matters important to tho
peoplo of Ohio. Mr. Plants should,
therefore, under the circumstances have
been more cartful of the will, rights
and interests of those who are not di
rectly represented. But tho people of
the District of Columbia .wero unani
mously opposed to negro suffrage, and
manifested theii wishes clearly and
distinctly at an election, yet Plants
knowing all this, was determined as far
as he had tho power, tho negro of the
District should vote. .
Can a man who thus disregards tho
plain and public wishes of it peoplo
bo trusted its an agent to . mako laws
and look after our interests und
wishes? ... IIo will betray a confiding
peoplo whenever ho may 6oo it his in
terest so to do'. A member of Congress
who will vote to thrust upon an unwill
ing people negro suffrago and negro
oqualiry.'will, if ho can, bo in favor of
doing the Bamo thing in Ohio? Is it
honest to bo a negro suffrago man in
tho District of Columbia and play fust
aud loose on the tamo question hero at
home? .
The Herald on the Rump Congress.
A long, lame and impotent argument
is made in tho last Morgan Herald to
excuse and pulliuto tho action of the
Rump Congress in their extravagant
donations of tho people's money to pay
themselves.
The writer holds the few Democratic
member of both branches of Congress,
who voted for tho measure, alike re
sponsible with the Radical for tho
passago of this plundering scheme It
will not do to attempt to shift tho re
sponsibility of this obnoxious measure
upon Democrats, when tho fact is
known that tho Radicals havo more
than two-thirds of' both branches of
CongresS. The majority part y 1 in
every legislative or deliberative assem
bly is aj ways held responsible for tlje
measures adopted. , ::if tho measure is
bad, tho majority must unswor to their
constituents; if, on the other hand, thd
measure is A good cmc, they receive
tho credit. , It a bad measure is in
troduood the party havingtho majority
should - prevent its becoming a law,
We do not hold the Rump Congress ro-
Bpohsiblo for every thing that wont into
it,, Wo only .hold them Answorablo for
what came 6ut of it : 'We cannot soo
upon what principles, 'of right ! the mi
nority (and it a Very small oneat that)
can bo, held answerable before the peo
ple for an obnoxious measure) like that
of taking eyttrfl paw rrvnfrrarvv'y
tract pricos. Iheitadical party mi
Congress had tho power in their own
hands, and Could liavo proventod the
passage of tho mensuro.
Rut, says tho Herald, tho passngo of
tho Jaw was a trick and that mr. V.
voted against it. According to tho ad
mission of the Herald . It was a fricA; for
a Radicul Congress, where the Kadi
cals had more than three mombera to
the Democrats one, to pnss a law. The
trick then, a fraud, a cheat, an imposi
tion, was played off by Ruda against
Rads. Ttrkk or no trick, it bccms that
Plants seized his shnro of the stakes
Such atT excuse and apology, as is here
given by tho Herald to cxtricatoPlants
from his present dilemma, will not go
down woll with honest men. It may
do with trickery politicians, but with
fair deiiiing men tho excuse is all bosh.
Try it again, and see if you cannot
work your way out of the mud aud
miro you have got yourself Into by
some other means than trying to make
a minority responsible for the 'acts ol
tho majority. Try it again, and see if
you cannot extricate Plants from tho
unenviable position of taking money
from the Treasury through the instru
mentality of fraud, cheatery and impo-
sision.
If you have anything more to say
about the tricks performed by your
Radical Congress wo will patiently hear
you.
Philadelphia Radical Convention.
tion.
Tho Radical Convention that lately
met in the city of Philadelphia, was
composed mainly of tho excrement
of the Northern armies, expelled here
and there, by tho foreo of their own
corruption. Jho old citizens of the
South who wero originally opposed to
secession und continued so through tho
war, neither sympathize or take part
with theso desperate agitators. Into
tho hands of thepolitieal desperadoes,
tho Radicals of the North have throwi.
themselves, aud they must now abide
and stand up to tho issuo presented by
tho Southern Radicals. This Conven
tion seals up the connection und makes
the rule or ruin men of the South,
whose onlyhope to maintain their posi
tion is in disfranchising n largo major
ity of the whites and extending suffrage
tJ the blacks, tho leaders of the party
to dictate its platform and prescribe its
policy. Tho issuo of negro suffrago all
over tho United States is one, aftcrtho
action of this Convention, that cannot
bo dodged. Tho Republican party will
bo committed to tho issue, as fully as it
cun bo dono by tho universal consent
of its Representatives, and they must
abide by it, and the alternative presen
ted to the people of the United States,
is now, support negro suffrage or suf
fer tho political pains aud penalties of i
treason. , ,
To sho'V how dosperato theso nogro
worshijiors havo become, we need only
refer to tho resolutions'; and address
adopted by tho Convention. They in
dict Andrew Johnson, President Of the
United States, and demand his impeach
ment und removal from offieo. The
vindictivoness, hatred, stupidity and
revolutionary conduct of thesp South
ern Radical desperadoes havo scarcely
a parallel in the history of the world,
Tho days of Jacobinism in. France as
simulate somewhat to theso proceed
ings und tho designs of the desperato
leaders. '
The Radicals in Favor
Suffrage.
The Rhiladelphiii Radical . Conven
tion after six days session has adjour
ned.
Those who were recognized as dele
gates camo from tho Southern States,
though tho Northern States wero all
represented by lobby members, . Tho
most conspicuous and the most impu
dent delegate was Fred. Douglass, tho
negro,
, At all times he was to boBcen prom
enading arm iu arm, Betting vis a vis
.or tete a tcte with those men and women
of tho Convention who had taken the
precaution to supply themselves with
a bottle, iu each pocket, of, Dr, Silbco's
VPodogogul." Those 'ho, like tho Cvo
foolish virgins, had couio to tho Con
ventiou With uo "Podogogul'S in'.thoir
pockeU had to endure the odor arisug
from "an Amorican citizen of African
de'-i-amf,". v : '
: An old darkey Ijy tho name of Ran
dolphs from. Louisiana, mudo A raring
tearing speech in favor of tiegro euf
fragb.' He called upon the whilo breth:
orn, "to conte up and face de mooHick"
i lot de quinsequances bo what do
mought, ho Bpokestadem aii do man
whbwae backeij up by, tree, or!, foro
millions of udder colrod , pussons, and
dey axed for de rite to vote , at do lec
tion, and dey must hab it, and if de
faWi dldon gnb it to tiro dy
would be sorry all do days ob dero
born lifo, for when de time comes dat
do darkey doo come up to de lection
wid do white man to vote dey wood be
berry likely to member daf friends
and not forget dar fos."
This Bpeech, which was like unto
many others, was received with great
demonstration of applause by the negro
worshipers, Ac., and by tho frequent
application of bottles to ' the hOTi of
those who, at present, wero fernent tho
mmegenation, amalgamation and con
glomeration of tho whites and blacks,
particularly in warm wether.
The address, advocating and demand
ing negrosufl'rnge through the immedi
ate action of Congress, was adopted by
a votd of 66 for, and 11 against. This
action of this nef.ro-cquality Conven
tion binds and fattens the Northern
Radicals to tho car of the Couthern
Radical negro suffrage party. We
hope to Bee no more dodging on this
vital and important question. Come
up gentlemen, and as tho negro said
"face do moosick."
Plants' Connection With a Trick.
Tho Herald in a long, prosy and by
no means satisfactory article, na to
tho points touched upon, iu regard to
tho part taken by T. A. riant3 on tho
proposition to increaso the ealay of
members of Congress, Ac, among other
things saye:
"More than this he (Plants') is and
was opposed to the trick by which tho
bill whs passed.
It is a fact then, admitted by the
Morgan Herald, that the Radical Con
gress, of which T. A. Plants is a mem
ber, did resort to trickery to enable them
to pass a law to increaso tho pay of
members
Then if it was a trick (the meaning of
the word a cheat, an imposition fraud,)
to puss such n law, what kind of a mem
ber of Congress is he who will turn
round after a law is passed through
"cheatery, imposition and fraud," and
take tho extra pay allowed by tho law
thuspasscil? T. A. -Plants did that
very thing. He pocketed the 2,000
extra pay that got there by a trick.
It is said in law that n person receiv
ing into his hands stolon property,
knowing it to bo stolen, is equally
gtiilty with tho thief. Is Mr. Plants
then, who received the extra pay, in a
better position morally than the mem
bers who, by a trick, passed tho law?
Wo think that tho apology and ex
cusofor Plants will not bo satisfactory
with honest men. '
Plants says to his brother members,
you steal und I will hold. They aro
put forward to play tho trick, and
Plants, within tho next twenty-four
hours after tho trick is perpetrated,
steps up to tho office "and takes' tho
money thus obtained by cheatery and
fraud, ou call that honesty, do you?
Try your hand again on honesty, and
on, Mr. riants' connection w ith that
virtue.
The Maimed and Disabled.
Tho generous Democracy of Hamil
ton county, in their nominations of
county officers' have been mindful of
the soldier. ' ,
F r Aulitor, ono of tho best offices
in tho Stato, they nominated Adolph
Ahlcr, who was a soldier of merit in
tho war, and lost an arm in tho scrvico
during the siege of Atlanta. , , ,
Fpr Prosecuting Attorney they
nominutod Goneral Stephen M'Groarty,
who is a well educated lawyer, and' is
a soldier of distinguished merit. He
was not one of the feather bod kind.
Entering tho army as a Lieutenant, ho
faughthis way up to llrigadier General.
Ho was in nearly cv.ery great battle of
the war, East und West, and received
no less than twenty-two wounds, in tho
scrvico and among them had tho mis
fortune to loose an arm. Tho regi
ment ho commanded, originally one
thousand strong, Bunk down in its
numerous battles to loss than ono hun
dred men. , '. i i
Richard W. Rowo was nominated for

bility in that county. llo Is a man of
