HOOHE . KELLT, Publishers.
Several States held their elections on
Tuesday lost, but, owing to the failare
of tbe mail to arrive, we are unable to
irive the result of any of them. Wo
will gire a full report next woek.
The Cash System.
As we stated in our lant issue, we
intend to adopt tho cash system.
Several attempts, within the past few
years, Lave been made to carry on a
Democratic paper in this county on tho
credit system, and all have failed in a
very short time, and those who paid in
advance' failed to get their paper for
the full time for which they paid.
Now, we say to all our subscribers,
that we have contracted with Mr.
Glenn to furnish tho pnper to all those
who have paid him for it, and that wo
are bound to keep the paper going for
some nine months yet, and if, at tho
nd of that time, thero is no better
prospect of Us paying than at the
present, we intend to permanently sus
pend its publication. It is for the
Democrats to say whether they have a
paper or not. We will take no new
subscribers for a longer period than j
sino months. We would also stnto
that we intend sending one more copy
to all, and after that wo will send to
none who aro in arrears on subscrip
tion. We are compelled to adopt this
plan, for we cannot get a bundle of
paper, a load of coal, or a day's work
done unless wo pay cash in hand. All
those knowing thcmsolves indebted to
us on subscription, and who do not
wish the paper anyjonger,aro Tpect
fully solicited to como in and settlo for
the time they have had it. We hope
that all of our subscribers will recog
nize the necessity of this measure, and
cheerfully comply with it.
We request all those who desiro to
have tho paper continued for a longer
period than nine months to endeavor
to got us new subscribers, for a Demo
cratic paper in Morgan county has not
much else to depend on for support.
Pick the Flint and Try It Again.
pleasure to meet since the election,
says, with hope and confidence beam
ing in his faco, let us "pick the flint and
try it again, as tho old Domocratic gun
will not always miss tiro."
We heartily endorse such action, and

lic I Radicalism and all other isms
must havo their day, and we must
look for a bolter time in the future.
Thore are some bright political spots
in old Morgan, which serve as invig
orating cordials to all our party -workers.
Meigsville township, which has
beon, for some years past, polling a
Republican majority, gave at tho last
election a majority of three for Dem
ocracy and right making a gain over
Radicalism in one year of twenty-six.
Morgan township gave a large Demo
vratic gain. Manchester done nobly
ana so aia xoric. When it is remem
bered that the Radicals mndo such eu
per-human exertions to gain the day,
we may say that all the townships
done well. All that is requisite to our
eventual suocess is to bo earnest, vigi

The Radicals in Ohio elect sixteen
Congressmen, on a total vote in th
State of 275,000. The opponents elect
but three members, with a total vote
235,000. 'It takes, therefore, under th
rascally district apportionment of th
Radicals in Ohio, 73,000 votes to elect
an anti-Radical member, whilo 17,000

The Complete Control of the
The New York Times', which is now
on the Radical side, commences a po
litical artical thus: , o '
"The South prefer8to trust td the
ascendency of the Democratio party,
and to await that event as the occasion
and condition of its readmission to po
litical power. Very well. It can do
so beyond all doubt., . Southern mem
bers are not likely, according to present
appearances,, to be forced into Congress
against their will, ana win prooabiy
be allowed to wait outside until the
Democratic party shall get control of
both Houses ol CongreBS, tr they eieci
to do so. But we trust they will not
tako it amiss if we suggest that they
may have to wait a long while. . That
event seems somewhat remote For
tho next three 3'cars it is cortain that
it can not take place Congress, for
that time at least, will bo in tbe hands
of tho Republicans, who will be only
too happy to wield its power, and to
govern the country in their own way
and for their own benefit, without in
terference from Southern members.
Tlioy have already secured, moreover,
tho complete control ot tho coining
Presidential election, and will undoubt
edly exercise tho power over that
event which the Southern States pro
pose io leavo in their hands."
We aro informed that the Republi
cans have "seen rod complete control
over the next Presidential election,"
and will exerciso their power over
that event. What meaning docs such
language convey ? Is one to infer that
tho Presidential election of 1863 is not
to bo in the hands of the people at
that time? The above extract says it
is already controlcd by tho Republicans!
Are wo to bo allowod, then, to have a
'residential election ; or is it to bo
hold if we have ono in such a man
ner as to be only a furco? Can any
one explain how this control has been
effected? Aro we to have a perpetual
dictatorship in tho person of Ben. Butler?
General William Schouler and
General B. F. Butler.
General William Schouler. formerly
editor of the Cincinnati Gazette, and
now Adjutant-general in Massachu
setts, is out in a Tetter against Goneral
B. F. Butlor. Ho says that he is a Re
publican, but ho cannot vote for But
ler, because ho does not live in tho dis
trict, and becauso he is pledgod to im
peach the President. General Schou
ler, in his letter, says:
"The President will decline to bo do-
posed, and ho will call upon tho army
und navy to support him. Congress
will call upon the sanio to support it.
Hero comes a clash. Tho President
will call upon tho militia to support
tho Executive. Congress will call up
on the militia to support Congress.
The issue is made partisan. The heat
becomes every moment more intense.

We invite particular attention to tho

of the majority ol the peooplo of thoso
States may be, or the stato of society,
nothing can bo more certain than that
it is tho natural result of tho regimen
to which the people havo been subjec

determined to coerce, they resolved to
dare nil tho consequences of the coer

It is suid in a special dispatch from
St. Louis to a city cotcmporury that
"out of 2,200 votws in Mouroo County,
Missouri, only about four hundrod and
filly were able to show a loyal rocord,
such us would enable them to get on
the books as legal voters." Iu other
words, out of 2,200 who have been uc
customed to vote, 450 will be permitted
to vote, and 1,750, if possible, bo dis
franchised. It is inado the business of
450 to suppress and permanently keep
down 1,750; of one-fourth to reduce
three-fourths to political nonentity.
In order, in the Radical estimation,
that we, the people of the North, may
enjoy tho benefits resulting from tho
war, this practical subjugation of three
fourths to one-fourth, is essential.
This given up, nothing has been gained
and we aro worse off than wo was be
