The above is extracted from a
leading cditorii.l in the Herald of
last week. It accuses the Republi
cans who aignod the call for a Peo
ple's Convention of calling the ao
lion of the Commissioners, in is
suing their "manifesto," ft "mere
pretense," Ac,, and says of said He-
publicans, that they could have made
'no baser or more contomptible allu
sion; no meaner attack upon the
individual integrity of men," and
concludes by passing ft high enco
mium upon the personal hoiior and
credit of said Commissioners, and,
consequently, condomns the sayings
of said Republicans, as false, and
evon libelous in ft moral senso. Al
though the language above quoted,
which the Herald charges the Repub
lican signers of the coll with otter
ing, is our language, wo tuko it tor
granted that sui J Republican signers
of tho call nttercd the same in tho
presence of tho editor of tho Herald,
or bis friends, and now take tho
liberty of justifying oaid RVpubli
cans, which the Uesald thinks have
disgraced thcmsolvcs by signing
said call. Within the memory of
most "of our youngest voting popu
lation, tho Court House of Morgan
connty was built. These young
men, as woll as tho older ones, re
member that the thon ComroiaHion
crs of Morgan county submitted the
expediency of building said Court
uouse to the voters of tho county
at ft general election, and the rcsnl'.
was that the electors of the county
voted three to one against building the
new Court House. Now, what did
those Comtmsf loners do in tho fnco
of this expression of tho pcoplo?
Tho presenco of our new Court
Uouso answers tho question. Those
Commissioners immediately, re
gardless of tlie voico of the people
so docidodly expressed, wont to
work und taxed the pcoplo of Mor
gan county and built tho now Court
Uouso. Wo would ask now, who
wero thoso county Commissioners
who actod thus perfidiously with the
people? Anybody acquaintod with
the county officers of Morgan for the
past few yeart can answer tlx
quest ion t All know that Jonhua
Duvia, tho present head and front
of our board of Commissioners, was
tho head and front of tho board thut
built tho new Court llonso ogaitiht
tho expressed will of tho people,
which lie, himself, h;t J uBked to Le
cxprossed I Yes, fellow citizens, of
Morgan, Joshua DuvU taxed you
to build ft new Court Ilouse against
your expressed will, and we now
ask, in common honesty, if every
Republican and Domocrut of Mor
gan County is not justified in sny-
ing that the name Jonhua Dims will
tax you again without your assent.
particularly if you choose to support
b ticket which evorv one knows to
have been nominated.us a Pike ticket.
Tho Herald man may accuse you
as incapable of making "no baser

the head man of our present board

not truo that most of our merchauts
aro involved in Brewster's failure,
or any other man'.' failure, or thut
they aro involved at all. All of our

Right Reverend Foster Baker he
was known in Perry county, vory
unceremoniously bid ftdiea to Mc
Connelsrill on Monday, th 19th
ii. at. II had been sojourning here
about three months, and was the
special et of th leading Radicals
of this vicinage. II Was ft lawyer,
preacher, jokist, Republican stump
speaker, and tho best mor.ey bor
rower onr Republican friends have
known in our memory. He is really
ft smart fellow, but shows a great
weakness In borrowing money.
Why'he should do so, is what we
cannot understand. Ho cortainly
ha iio need of money. Ho is one of
thoso fortunate beings that can ob
tain boarding, clothing, whisky, Ac,
without money and without price.
But still he wus foolish enough to
put himself to the trouble of asking
this or that Republican friend to
loan him fivo, ten, fifteen or twenty
dollars, as tho case might be, very
frequently, as n.oot all our Incline
Republicans can niui will :it. f
And what is worse the Right R- -orend

tho recipient of what ho asked for;
and, worso still, his "to-morrow"
never was known to como round,
though the sun did rise and sot here

Right Reverend Colonel tell his tale,
and he bad been the fortunate hold
er of many places of trust and hon
or in this world; but if our Repub
lican friends were to expross them
selves now, they would say that
" trust" had been b-stowod on him,
but "honor" was I und wanting.
But as tho Right Reverent Cobncl

any money from ns, und as our

" If tho C' missioners profcrred
to dinrcgard v. iiut they believo to be
the will ol the pcoplo they could go
on and levy a tax, ixsuu bonds and
build tbo roads and the pcoplo would
have to bear the burden." alcCon
By this it is claimed that tho
Commissioners rogard the will of
the pcoplo. The truth is that they
only regard the success of the Re
publican ticket of Morgan County,
and for tho success of this Pike tick
ot they issued their " manifesto,' as
tho Herald colls it. Tho evening
before tbo "manifesto" of the Com
missioners was ifsuod, such Repub
lican wire-pullers as D. C. Pinkor
ton wero greatly agitated. They
fcarod tho success of the People's
movement, and consequently, they
devised the best means possible to
defeat it, They concluded to put
boys on horses and have them run
to the residences .if Petlit and Corp,
and have them hero in time to issue
their " manifesto," so that tho Her
at "ould publish it that week.
Tli.o was di nil, as wo are informed
by a prominent Republican, and the
Commissioners obeyed the com
mands of such politicians as D. C.

nication, written by some fellow in
Windsor, and also an editorial arti
cle, which reflect on Capt. I. N.
Hook and William Beswick, Esq.,
both of Windsor township. The
object of the writers is to convince
th pubho that Hook and Beswick
hav acted inconsistent in first of
fering to donat money toward the
building of ft Pike Road, and then
signing the call for ft Poople's Con
vention, which will bo opposed to
the taxation of the County tor Pike
We cannot see anything inconsis
tent in this action of Hook and Bes
wick, strange us it may appear to
tho Windsor correspondent and edi
tor of the Herald. At tho time Hook
and Beswick gov their bonds for
the payment of $500 and $25, re
spectively, m case ft Piko Rood
should be bnilt, having a terminus
at the. village of Windsor, the Com
missioners, of Morgan County had
i von out that the Pike Roads would
ur ly bo Innl. and arrangements
''i mi 1 .-1 r. maie to commence the
survey an : location of said roods,
and the viewers bud been appoint
ed, it was also givon nut that the
roads would bo locatod along thoso
lines whoro tb people would rnino
tho lurgest private subscription.
Now, as tho Herald admits, Copt.
Hook is onoof the largest land-holders
in Windsor township, and Mr.
Beswick is a hotel kcepor in the
villng. of Windsor. Thcso tact
considerod, Hook and Beswick saw
it wan to their into est to bavo a
rond terminating nt tho villago of
Windsor, nd, consequently, thoy
wero nttivo in attempting to rairo
ft private subscription sufficiently
largo to indnce the Commissioners
to locate this Windsor road. Hook
snj Beswick knew that if Piko
Bonds wero bnilt in the County, as
the Commissioners had givon out
would bo done, thut tho only way
the)', as individuals, woro going to
keep themselves whole, was to sac
coed in getting a rond locatod where
it would bo of benefit to them,
Therefore, euch of thorn promised
tho sums above named. But, not
withstanding the fact that they uie
good enough business men to tuko
this advantage of tiie action of the
Commissioners, they aro alxo alive
to the injustice and oppression that
must enauo from tho taxation of tho
County for Pike purposes, and con .
scqucntly they signed the call for tho
People's County Convention. II
thero is anything inconsistent in
this, wo c.nnot see it, and we doubt
if any good business man can.
