"COMMUNICATION" OF ASSISTANT
As a preface to this article, which
promises to be rather lengthy, we will
endeavor to correct a Terv wron im-
pression which is existing in the minds
of very many people, to the effect that
we are actuated in this matter by a
feeling of hostility toward Assistant
Assessor Kahler, because he happens
to be the Senior proprietor of the Mc
Connelsville Herald, a paper that they
suppose we wou'd sink into oblivion,
had we the power so to do. We wish
all such persons to understand that, in
entertaining such an idea, they are in
dulging in a great error. We have
naught but friendly feelings for Mr.
Kahler, as an individual; and, although
it is true that the Hera'd has occasion
ally displayed a malignant spirit to
ward us, yet we have never cared en
ough for its petty abuse to cherish re
vengeful or spiteful feelings against it
In bringing forward Mr. Kahler so
prominently in this matter, we have
but taken advantage of his discredita
ble official record, as Assistant Assess
or, which he has made for himself, and
is responsible for himself, and which it
is our right and duty as a journalist to
make the public acquainted with,
knowing, as we do, that a home in
stance cf public plundering will have
more influence upon our people than
forty foreign ones. With this explan
ation, we will proceed to review
MR. KAHLER'S COMMUNICATION.
The sum total of the more than half
column, of the Herald, that it occu
pies, is that our statement that his as
sessments for February and March,
1869, amounted to only $116.77 for Feb
ruary, and $102.96 for March, is "utter
ly false," and that the "facts in rela
tion to the matter" are that "the as
sessment for those months, instead of
being only $219.73, amounted to $1289.
91. Besides this, the Annual assessment
had to be made, which occupied a part
of the April also, and which foots up
15,321.33, and including the April list,
amounting to $1,753.96, makes a total
of $8,365.96." In answer to this, we
will say that our statements are not
false ; that we can prove them to be
true by the returns made to Deputy
Collector W. W. McCarty ; that any
person interested in this matter can
satisfy themselves of this truth by call
ing at the said Deputy Collector's of
fice, in the Court Ffouse, in McCon
nelsville, and examining the books
there open for the inspection of the
public. We do not ask any one to re
ly upon our statements alone in relation
to this point in controversy ; ce ask
that everybody that wants to It informed on
this question, go and male an examination
of the Deputy Collectors books The
BOOKS WILL KOT LIB 1
We confess that we were somewhat
astonished at the statement Kahler
published over his signature, last week.
We were not prepared to believe he
would attempt such a brazen defense
of the Internal Revenue corruptions
which the people are suffering under.
We had no idea he was so foolish as to
suppose he could make the people be
lieve what he published, when his
statements stand refuted by a record
made by himself, andVhich the people
can so easily become possessed of. He
not only astounded us, he also astoun
ded a great many of the leading, ard
ent Republicans in this community,
who knew he had added to his account
ability to the people, for living the life
of a leech on their industry, an accoun
tability in futurity for willfully and
knowingly falsifying. Yes, we were
astounded; and in this state of mind
we repaired to his office, on last Satur
day, and asked him to give us an item
ize! statement ot the manner ir. which
he made up his published statement,
found above, that his assessments for
the months above mentioned amount
ed to $1259.94. He told us that our
statement was correct with the returns
made by him, as found in the Deputy
Collector's office ; but that the excess of
$1289.94 over $219.73, what the Deputy
Collectors books show him to have as
sessed in said two months, was for
Stamps on cigars, leer, &c, told ly the Dy
uty Collector to the manufacturers of these
articles in tliit county 1 Any man with
any knowledge of Internal Revenue
matters knows that the Assistant As
sessor has nothing to do, whatever,
with the sale of these Stamps. They
are sold by the Deputy Collector in the
same manner that postage stamps are
sold ; and, it will be remembered, that
in our artie'e of last week, in which we
charged that all the Internal Revenue
tax paid by the people of this District,
aid not pay the expense of assessing
and collecting the same, we excepted
the Stamp Duties and the tax paid by
the National Banks. All the Assistant
Assessors have to do with the manu
facturers of cigars, beer, tobacco, &c,
the men who buy these Stamps, is to
send them a b'ank, once a month, on
which the manufacturer makes out a
sworn statement of the amount of his
business, as a manufacturer, for the
month in question, and sends it back
to the Assistant Assessor, who makes
a minute of it on his books for the
purpose of operating, as we suppose, as
a check on the Deputy Collector, who
keeps theStamps for sale. This is what
Mr. Kahler attempts to call Internal
Revevenue Assessment 1 We let the
people, without further comment cf
ours, determine in their own minds
whether it is a sale or an assessment I
Rut Mr. Kahler evidently claims that
a portion of his wages for the months
cf February and March, 1869, was for
sending blanks to manufacturers and
making an entry of their sworn state
ments on his books. We will endeavor
to show the people what his wages
would probably be for his services in
that way ; and, also, for his services in
making the Annual Assessment, which
he says occupied a part of February,
March and April, of that year ; and,
then, we will deduct these two bills
from his full wages for those two
months and see how the matter foots
np. Mr. Kahler tells us he is paid five

in counting the hours sometimes he
will "knock-off" at three or four o'clock

and March, of
tlD in" m -teoruary
last year, there were five manufactur
ing establishments, that had to pay
Stamp Duties on the articles of their
manufacture, in Morgan county ; and
estimating that it would take five min
utes to mail a blank to each of these
establishments, and five minutes to
make the entry on his books of the
sworn statement of each manufacture
when returned, and we have an hour
and forty minutes of the Assistant As
sessor's time consumed in two months,
for which he would be entitled to re
ceive the sum of sixty-six and two
thirds cents. Also, estimating that it
would take three day's labor for the
Assistant Assessor to make the entire
Annual Assessment, which we are told
by a responsible Republican of this
village, who understands the entire In
ternal Revenue business, is ample time
for an ordinary business man to com
plete it in ; and, accepting Mr. Kahler's
statement to be true that two-thirds of
it was made during said m5nths of Feb
ruary and March, and we find that two
days' wages, or the sum of ten dollars,
must be deducted for his labor on the
Annual Assessment. The total of this
deduction for what he calls "Stamp
Duty Assessments," and for making
the Annual Assessment, will be ten
dollars and 6ixty-six and two-thirds
cents for the two months, or five dol
lars and thirty three and one-third
cents each month. Deducting this
$10.66 2-3 from the total wages for the
said two months and we find that Mr.
Kahler charged and received, accord
ing to his own admission, $211.41 1-3
for assessing $219 73 in the months in
question. While this does not bear us
out in our assertion that he charged
$2.36 more for his assessmenta in these
months, taken together, than his as
sessments amounted to ; yet, it will be
seen by deducting $5.33 1-3 from his
admitted wages for March, which am
ounted to $123.32, that he charged a
bout $118.00 for making the assess
ments which appear on the Deputy
Collector's book for that month; and,
when it is remembered that these as
sessmenta only amount to $102.96, it
will be eident to any one that ho
charged $15.00 more for that month's
work than his assessments were.
Now, we ask the gentleman how he
likes the appearance of matters when
computed in accordance with his own
statement of the facts? Further, we
ask the people of Morgan county to
give the matter a thorougo investiga
tion, and see who is attempting to de
ceive them, Andrew Kahler or our
selves ? We cite the people to the
proofs of what we say, and tell them
that they can be found in the Deputy
Collector's office. We have called on
Mr. Kahler, himself, and solicited in
formation of him individually, and we
have published his statements as he
gave them to us ; and we have shown
that he has charged $15.00 more for
his services in the month of March,
1869, according to his published and
private admissions, than his services
amounted to in that month!
Had we the space, we might respond
to several other paragraphs in the gen
tleman's communication, for instance,
that "the Herald has nothing to do
with this matter," and an intimation
that Andrew Kahler is and has been a
"supporter" of the Government, and
thai we have not. However we will
not go into detail relative to such mat
ters, as it will suffice to say that the
Herald never had anything to do with
the exposure of corruption, but would
rather be the supporter and defender
of it; and that the idea of Andrew
Kahler figuring largely as a "support
er of the Government," is a little
laughable when it is remembered that
he has obtained . his daily bread, for
the past ten or fifteen years, by filling
the Government's offices. It looks to
us as though the Government had been
the "supporter," not Kahler !
We had intended to give an exhibit,

when he told us that he was "turning

THE NEGROSENATOR FROM
A negro, who rejoices in the came
of Hiram H. Revels, is about to
take his place in that once exalted
body known as the Senate of the li
nked States. Ho goes there upon
a certificate of election from tho Le
gisla'.ure, signed by General Ames,
the United States Military Com
mandant in Mississippi, who is him
self levels' colleague, elected in the
same manner to the Senate. The
principal, of course, certified to the
choice of the accomplice in the stu
pendous fraud. There is a little in
cident conceded with this bonora
ble Senator which ia worthy of no
tice. On or about the first of Ang
ust, 1867, this colored gentleman
was a citizen ox Kansas. He insti
tuted a suit or criminal prosecution
against" one John H. Morris for
charging him (Eevels) with embez
zling the funds of his (Revels')
church and with falsehood and hy
pocrisy. The defendant (Morns)
justified and claimed the truth of
his allegation. The jury took the
matter under advisement, and re
turned the following vordict :
"The defendant (Morns) took the
ground that the alleged libel was
true, and proved to our satisfaction
that the said Hiram U. Revels has
embezzled certain funds belonging
to bis church, and bus been guilty
of falsehood, and had unnecessarily
forced a quarrel on the said Morris,
thus compelling him to act in vind
ication of his owu character.
"In short, we found that the al
leged libel was true, and that it
was published for good motives and
justifiable ends, all of which it was
necessary to prove to secure an ac
quittal in a suit for libel.

Plain Talk in Pulpit—Radical
The Crawfordsvlllo (Indiana)
Review 6ays that on last Sunday
morning the Rev. Samuel Godfrey,
cf that city, who heretofore suppor
ted the Radical party, preached an
eloquent sermon to a large and
nttentivo audience in tho Methodist
Episcopal Church at Crawfordsville.
In the course of the serviees he
offered up tbo following prayer,
which we commend to a carciul
reading by those of our fellow-cite
zens who. in former elections, havo
been induced by false promises and
demagogical appeaIsto their pass
ions and prejudices to help place in
power tho most corrupt and infa
mous administration that evercurs
ed a nation. The appeal of the
eloquent divine to the Throne of
Grace, we venture, will not bo un
heeded, when we recognized the
fact that God is just. The
"O Lord I Thou knowestthat the
leading men of our nation, and
those occupying tho highest public
positions, are thieves and robbers,
plunderers & murderers, drunkards
and debauches; that we have . too

A Radical gentleman, who
recently spent some days in Wash
ington, "dinning and winning in
hiah official circles." was asked hia
impressions of the political situa
tion when about to leave. His r-
ply was remarkable and true:
"I find," ho said, "an administra
tion without a party to suDDdrtit."
Tho official patronage of the Presi
dent and his secretaries having
been disposed of. there is an obvi
ous relaxing ot that cohesive power,
the pursuit of nubhc plunder, whish
formed the sole bond of union be
tween General Grant and the party
which elected him. The .New York
Times accurately describes the re
lations of the parties, no doubt,
when it says, "There is no enthu."
6ia6tn on tbe floor of either House,
either in the support of the rr.eas.
ures of the Administration or in its
defense from outside attack." That
this state of things may continue
to tho end of the present Presiden
tial term is barely possible. If
Grant is content to let the Radicals
in Congress control the Govern
ment absolutely, finding his own
sufficient amusement in his liorsc
stable and dog-kennel, there will,
perhaps, bo no violent disturbance
ol the feeling of mutual indifference
and contempt, which is the chief
characteristic of his relations with
his party. But the train is laid,
and a trifle as insignificant as a
spark from one of his own cigars
may in one moment produce an ex
plosion which will afford the pre
seot incumbent an excellent idea of
tho nature of tbe personal earth
quakes which beset his predecessor
in the Presidential chair. Lx.

Sinning and Suffering.
Very faw ladies know how to appre
ciate an easy, healthful dress. They
think thtir dresses are loose, when a
man or boy put into one as tight would
gasp for breath, and feel incapable of
putting forth any effort except to
break tbe bands. Ladies are so accus
tomed to the tight fit of dressmakers
that they "fall to pieces" when reliev
ed of them. They also associate the
loose dress with the bed or lounge.
To be up, tbeymustbe stayed up, and
to recommend a comfortable dress to
them is not to meet a conscious want
of theirs. It is a great pity none the
less. If they could once know what a
luxury it is to breathe deep and full at
each respiration, to feel the refresh
ment which the system takes on hav
ing the b'ood enlivened and sent
bounding through the arteries and
veins, to have the aids to digestion
which such process gives, to have their
own strong, elastic muscles keep every
organ in its place, and themselves
erect; if they could for a good while
know this blessed luxury, and then be
sent back into the old, stiff, straight-
jackets, they would fume, and fret, and
rave in very desperation if they could
not get rid of them. As it is, they pre
fer to languish and suffer dreadfully,
and die young, and leave all of their
friends, and their husbands, and their
little children, and I do not see any
other way than to let them be sick and
die till they are satisfied. If only the
sinner was ihe sufferer it would not be
so worth while to make a great ado
about it, but the blighting of future,
innocent lives, which must follow, ren
