REPORT OF OUR CONGRESSIONAL
Marietta, O., Aug. 4, 1870.
The Democratic Nominating Con
vention for the Fifteenth Ohio Dis
trict met at the Court-honse, in Ma
rietta, at ten o'clock this morning,
and organized teraporanlj by the
epjointment of P. B. Buell, Esq.,
of Washington County, as Chair
man, and Henry W. West, of Mon
roe County, as Secretary pro tern.
The usual Committee on Creden
tials, on permanent Organization
and Resolutions were named, and
the Convention took a recess nntil
about one o'clock p. m. After reas
sembling, the Committee on perma-
Tint Organization reported W.
Keed Golden, of Athens, for Preei
dent, and Silas R- Pavis, of Morgan
Conntv. as Secretary. The ratio of
representation agreed upon was,
Athens, sizteen delegates; Jkicigs.
nineteen; Monroe, twenty-eight;
Morgan, seventeen; ard Washing
ton, .thirty-four delegates.
Resolutions wero adopted con
demnatory of any extension of the
powers veBteJ iu the Federal Gov
ernment by ilid Constitution oi
3789, opposing the military despot
ism set up over the Southern States
of this Union, opposing the existing
Tariff laws as being enacted in the
interests of classes and monopolies,
as tending to impoverish the peo
ple without yielding revenues to
the Government, opposing the land
grants sanctioned by Congress, in
favor of taxing Federal bonds the
earne as other property and de
nouncing the Chinese Coolie
schemes of capitalists and specula
tors. The platform was unanimously
agreed to, and then the Convention
proceeded to nominate a candidate
for Congress. On the first ballot,
John Cartwright, of Meigs County,
received 53 votes; John E Hanna,
of Morgan, 33; and Jere Williams,
of Monroe, 28. Before tho second
ballot was taken, .Robert A. Consta
ble, of Athens County, nominated
Gen. W. P. Bichardson, of Marietta.
The result of the second ballot vas:
Cartwright, 19 votes, Williams, 28;
Hanna, 17;ittchardson, 50. On the
third ballot, Monroe County, after
voting for Jere Williams, changed
to Cartwright, And Mr. Constable at
once withdrew Richardson's name.
All the counties then began to
change in favor of Mr. Cartwright,
and he was nominated by acclama
tion. A District Committee, consisting
of Messrs. Dudley S. Nye, of Wush
ingtor; R. A. Constable, of Athens;
Henry K. West, of Monroe; Lewis
Hall, of Morgan, andjF. C. Russell,
of Meigs, was then appointed
Speeches were made by Mr. Cart
wnght and General Richardson,
and afterward the Convention ad
jourced. lie session was short and harmo
nious. The Democrats feel san
guine of being able to carry the
district at the fall election.
The Fifteenth Congressional
JoHir Cartwbight, of Meigs
County, is the Democratic nominee
for Congress in the Fifteenth Dis
trict. In 1868, at the last Congress
ional election, the vote stood as fol
lows: Democrat. Republican.
Athens 1,590 2,807
Meigs 2,164 3,234
Monro 3,239 1,274
Morgan 1,945 2,429
Washington 3,829 4,029
Republican majority 1,006
In 1869 the vote for Governor
was divided between Messrs. Pzn
dliton and Hatx.3 thus:
AM 1,644 2,578
Meigs 1,871 2.786
Monroe 2,792 903
Morgan 1,699 2,107
Washington 3,449 3,708
Hayes majority 607
The district is a close one, and,
with a vigorous effort, can be car
ried by the Democracy, as it was in
the first election in 1862. Monroe
County can be made to give 2,600
Democratio jnajority if the votes
a recall brought out. In Athens and
Me'gs the Republicans should not
have to exceed 1,600 majority. We
have great hopes of Cabt weight's
election. Cin. Eng.
Louis Napoleon is at the head
of his army. Kino William, of
Prussia,' the same. Qceen Victo
ria intent on state affairs. The
Czar on his frontier, and Francis
Joseph, of Austria, getting his
house in order. As for Grant

Gzrxany contains a population
of forty-five millions. Yet Germa
ny falls short, in its geographical
area, by 280,000 acres of the amount
of public lands voted by the last
Radical Senate to railroad corpora
ton. Jest think of it. The amount
of territory occupied by one of the
greatest and grandest nations of
the world, voted by the Radical
thieves in the United butes senate
to a parcel of speculators and land
sharks. Sherman, Sobenck and
Bingham were the leaders in this
robbery and Grant indorsed it.
Paris, August 3d.
The report of the capture of
Saarbock by the French on Wed
nesday morning is confirmed. The
rreiich troops passed the frontier
at 11 o'clock, and soon alter met the
Prussians strongly posted on tho
heights commanding Saarbuck,
which were carried by a few batta
lions. Tho artillery compelled the
Prupsians to evacuate the town m
great haste. Tho buildings in the
town caught fire and naif of tne
place was destroyed. After the
retreat of the Prussians the French
did not occupy the town. The
French claim that one division do
feated three divisions of Prussians.
The French lost one officer and ten
men. An official dispatch publish,
ed in Berlin says: "Yesterday a
small detachment stationed at Sanr
brucic was attacked by three French
divisions. After a sharp action the
position was abandoned, the Prus
sians falling back on their supports.
The loss was trifling." There was
ATiimor in London yesterday that
Wcisenberg. a town in the palatin
ate, on the border, had been storm
ejl by the French. According to a
London account, Prussia's army
lumbers about 636,000 men. It is
positively asserted in Paris that
Austria nud Italy have entered into
an alliance with Franca The seem
ing probability that England will
take sides with Prussia is said to
have hastened thie. ftep. The Par
is presse 6ays the declaration of the
Due De Grammont regarding the
neutrality of Belgium, which was
recently sent to Londor, will soon
be communicated to Parliament.
Paris, August 4th.
Yesterday the Prussians
a decisive victory at Weiseuburg.
A large force of Prussians attacked
General Douay's division of Marshal
McMahon's corps. The French
were driven from the field, and
their camp captured, besides 6ome
five hundred wounded sold'ers ta
ken prieoners. Several miles of
railroad were also destroyed by tho
Prussians. A dispatch from Stras
burg states that it is believed Marsh
al McMahon, with the African ar
my, is about to cross the Rhine,
and dash rapidly hy way of Carl
srubeand Heidelberg.to Frankfort,
and that thence he will endeavor to
cut the railroad communication be
tween Berlin and the Rhine. The
forward movement, it isrumoied,
is fixed for to-day. The Prussians
state that their loss at Saarbruck
was two officers and seventy men.
Paris, August 5.
The Taris Journals report
thero was heavy fighting yesterday
on the frontier, but no particulars
have been received. A battle is re
ported to have taken place yester
day at the village.of JSiederlauter
bach." Marshal McMahon is concen
trating the forces under his com
mand at Weisenburg. Saarluis has
not been taken by the French.
There has been no fighting yet at
that point. The Prussians m their
account o: tbe engagement at n Or
enburg state that their force con
sisted of the Fifth and Eleventh
Prussian Corps, with the Second
Bavarian. This force carried by
an assault the Fortress of Weisen
burg and the heights between Weis
enburg and Geisburg. Douay's Di
vision of McMahon's Corps was de
feated and driven from its camp.
General Douay himself was killed.
Eight hundred prisoners were ta
ken and one cannon captured by
the Prussian troops. The London
Times of yesterday says the plan
of the Prussian commander has
been recently changed frcm a de
fensive to an offensive one. An ad
vanae into France is threatened.
It is understood that England has
determined to make the invasion
of Belgium a casus belli.
Paris, August 6 and 7.
An official dispatch received in
Berlin, from Mayence, states that
the French, on Saturday, turned
back on their entire line, and com
menced to retreat toward tho inter
ior of France. The French had
commenced an advnnce from Saar
brucken, but having to fall back,
burned that town, and, an they
withdrew, fired hot shot into it.
Saarbrncken was afterwarJ retaken
by an increased force of Prussians.
On Saturday four divisions ot the
Prussians attacked the French west
of Saarbrncken, and, after a severe
action, the position occupied by the
French was carried at tho point of
the bayonet. The fight commenc
ed at 11 A. h. and continued until
9 at night. A dispatch from Lon
don says McMahon's defeat was
complete, and that the Crown
Prince has advanced to Hagenau,
and captured the place, routing the
French. A report from JJaden re
ports that a force of South German
troop have crossed the Rhine and
advanced on Strasburg, and that
the French army has been driven
back and are supposed to occupy
the line between Metz and .Nancy.
King William, in a dispatch to the
Queen, referring to the defeat of
McMahon states that "a great vic
tory was won. Wo captured 4,000
prisoners, 35 guns, 2 standards and
6 mitr&illenrs. McMahon during
the fight was heavily reinforced
from the main army. The contest
was very severe, and lasted from
eleven in the morning until nine
o clock at night, when the French
retreated leaving the field to us.
Our losses are heavy." McMahon
writes to paris that be is in a good
position and has been joined by an
other Corps dTAnnee from Metz.
He has fallen back to Saverne.
General Frosard retreated only a
short distance. A proclamation
signed by the Empress and the
Ministers is published, embodying
dispatches from Napoleon at Metz,
in which he says Marshal McMahen
has lost a battle: that his communi
cation with General McMahon has
been interrupted, and that General
irossard, on the baar, has been
oblidged to retreat. The proclama
tion states that the Chambers
have been convoked; that Paris is
being put in a state of defense, and
declares the. city in a state of 6iege.
Paris, August 8.
A dispatch from London says the
Prussians yesterday, occupied St.
Avoid, where McMahon had his
headquarters on Saturday. Gener
al McMahon's corps is in full re
treat toward Nancy. It is supposed
he is attempting to join the French
forces at Metz. Metz has been hur
riedly placed in a state of defense,
every malo pereon having been
pressed into tho service. In the
event that McMahon is cut off from
Metzt there is no duubt that Gener
al Buffiniero will be compelled to
evacuate Metz and fall back toward
Paris. Napoleon yesterday estab
Iirihed his headquarters at Chalons.
The whole Prussian reserve is lap
idly coming np with tho advance.
A later dispatch says the Prussians
are moving in the direction of Metz
by forced marches. A great battle
in front of Motz is considered pro
bable to-day. Le Temps announces
that Marshal Baz.tine has been ap
pointed Commander-in-Chief, and
General Trocha Major General of
the French army. General Le
Boeuf retires. The news from the
front has created the greatest ex
citement in Paris, and tbe universal
cry is To arms, to arm!" The
population is reported to be furious
over the recent defeats. Dispatches
received in that city state that the
French army in concentrating at
Motz, where a battle is expected to
he fought before many hours. No
fighting was reported yesterday.
The department of tbe Voeges and
Moselle have been inundated. A
levy en masse is expected. In the
battle of Saturday Marshal Mc
Mahon's Chief ot staff, General Col
son, was shot at his side. General
Raoult is among tho missing. The
defenses of Paris are reported to be
nearly ready to resist tho heaviest
assault. General Steinmetz, in a
dispatch to Berlin giving the
particulars of the contest between
Yon Goeben and the French forces
under General Frossard, says: "The
fight was opened on our side by the
Fourteenth Division, which was
susbeqnently reinforced by artillery
and cavalry. A fierce aud bloody
struggle raged along tho line be
tween Saarbrncken and Forbach,
lasting until night. The heights
of Speicheren were carried at the
point of the bayonet, and the enemy
thrown back on Forbach. Mean
while our Fifteenth Division had
advanced from Vreklingon, taken
Kossel and reached Forbnch, when
the broken divisions of the French
army wore being driven from that
point. Here the baggage and camp
equipage of two divisions and many
prisoners were taken. A London
dispatch says the Prussians claim
that they would have by last uight
800,000 men at the theater of war.
Despatches of August 9th.
There has been no fichtinc since
Sunday. A dispatch from Metz, dated
yesterday at 8:30 a. m., says: "The en
emy is in a large measure concentra
ting in. front of Meta. Marshal Ba-
. , a il ! .
taine nas uirecuon oi me opemuuug.
1 he Corps of General Frossard have re
tired in good order on Metz. All was
quiet daring the night. The Emperor
has ju6t gone to the general headquar
ters of Marshal uaiaine. uenerai
Chan gamier arrived at Metz yesterday.
Lie is endeavoring to obtain command.
Advices received in London from
France show that Bazaine, the Commander-in-Chief,
has 130,000 men at
Metz, McMahon 50,009 at St. Averne.
and Canrobert 51,000 at Nancy. A
Paris d spateh says General Frossard's
corps has been united with that of Ba
zaine, Mho has 150,000 men. It is sta
ted that the French army at Metz will
march to the Vosges to defend the pas
sage. General Failley is in communi
cation with tacMahon. A Paris dis
patch reports that at the battle of
Froschwiller 140,000 Prussians attack
ed 33,000 men A dispatch received
in Paris from Metz says General Fail
ley's corps, which was not engaged in
the recent actions, is the rallying point
of the army, and that McMahon has ex
ecuted the movements prescribed for
him. A dispatch from Carlsrube yes
terday states that ftrasturg is sur
rounded by 70,( 00 German troops, and
must surrender, as the garrison num
bers only 7,000 men, although this does
not include the National Guard of the
city, which would increase the garri
son largely, if called out. An advance
of the Prussians from Saarlouis and
Treves has commenced. It is suppos
ed that Frince Frederick Charles is in
command, and that an immediate at
tack will be made on the French po
sition at Metz. There is a rumor in
London that the Prussians are in Mul
hausen, sixty miles southwest of Stras
burg. The citizens in Paris are being
rapidly enrolled. 'I hirty-three thou
sand workmen, assisted by 20,000 sail
ors, are to work on the fortifications.
The Corps Legislatif met yesterday.
1 here was a stock-jobbing rumor in
New York yesterday that Napoleon
was dead. Dispatches from Metz yes
terday morning report the Emperor at
that place. 'I he French were defeat
ed at Woerth on the morning of the
7th by the First Corps of the Prussian
army and tbe Bararian troops. The
heights of Geremend were carried, the
French being repulsed in disorder and
with heavy loss. The action was se
vere and sanguinary. A dispatch from
Hamburg states that after this battle
the French retired in the greatest dis
order, artillery endeavoring to make a
stand at ruederbrun. I be town was
taken by the Bavarians, and the French
retired en route to Bitche. The cavalry
of Wurtenburg captured the enemy's
stores four pieces of artillery at Keich
stofer. On Monday morning the Ger
mans occupied Hagenau evacuated by
the French. 1 he German troops occu
py both banks of the Saar, having ta
ken Sarreguemines and Forbach after
a 6light resistence by theirench. A
dispatch from Berlin says the French
lost at the batt'e of Woerth, on Satur
day, 5,000, dead, wounded and missing.
and 6,000 prisoners. McMahon's bag
gage, many cannon and two large rail
way trains of Btores and munitions
were captured. The total loss of tbe
Prussians was 3,500. The Paris corre
spondent of the Manchester Examiner
telegraphs that Italy and Austria will
each send 100,000 men to aid France.
I he statement that Austria will aid
France Is probably untrue, as the Par
is papers say nothing is cartain con
cerning the course of Austria, while
they confirm the report in regard to
Italy. The London Times ascribes tbe
French disaster to Napoleon's obeiina-
cy in refusing sound military advice
and to his illness. Great dissentions
are reported in Paris. Some talk of
the abdication of Napoleon. - A great
battle is expected at Metz.

A gentlman who arrived here to
night from Georgia, and who is thor
oughly conversant with she condi
tion of political affairs in that State,
asserts that the Convention to bo
held at Atlanta on the 17th of the
present month will be composed of
the leading Conservative men in
the State, many of whom have a
National reputation. Among the
delegates will be Hershel Y. ohn
son, who was a candidate for Yice
President on tho Douglas ticket,
and formerly United States Senator
and Governor of Georgia; Gen. A.
H. Colquot, formerly a member ot
Congress from Georgia; Judge E.
G. Cabinass, one of the most distin
guished jurists in the South; Hon.
R- P. Tripp, formerly a member of
Congress; Gen. A. II. Wright, A. R.
Lamar, and other distinguished gen
tlemen. . It is also Etated that this
will be the ablest Convention that
has set in Georgia for fifty years.
The object ol the Convention will
be to preparo a Slate Legislative
ticket, and for members of Con
gress to fill out the unexpired term
ot tho Forty-fir6t Congress, and to
lay the true status of Georgia be
fore tbe President and ask bis ref
erence of the case to the Attorney
General. It is assorted that the
Convention will cheerfully abide tbe
decision. There is no doubt, if no
action is taken by the President in
this matter an election will be held.
Concerning tho material progres
of the State it is said that three
hundred thousand bales of cotton,
at the lowest calculation,' will be
mado during the present season,
and that the wheat crop was the
finest ever gathered in the State.
The Distress Caused by the
War in Europe.
A Frankfort (Germany) letter
writer gives a sad and sorrowful
picture of the distress and rum
caused by the war in that part of
Germany. lie says:
"The havoc already mado is stn
pedous. Mills are closed and the
working people without any means
of existence. Trade is paralyzed,
and the best bouses, who have
bought goods on credit, are at their
wits' end bow to meet the storm.
At the banks business wa3 all but
at an end yesterday, foreign bills
could not be sold, and money not to
bo got at any price, so that our
principal firms stepped in, and by
their guarantee induced the bank
to advance sixty per cent, on Amer
ican bondR. These have fallen from
ninoty-four, on tho eve of the war
last Wednesday, to seventy-four, as
sales were pressed to make money
8t ai-y price; they have recovered
in consequence of the advance now
made on them to seventy-nine.
Mortgage bonds are quite nnsala
ble, and all kinds of stock deeply
depressed. Tbe losses already am't
to thousands of millions. AH those
who are called to tbe army, which
extends to the whole of tbe popula
tion up to the age of thirty-five, are
privileged by the war to withhold
all payment of debts and bills until
after tbe peace. Of course this can
not be otherwise, and a man in the
field has no means to collect his
moneys. The miseries of those who
have no other resource but that of
the earnings of the family head are
When we read such accounts as
that we are forciblv reminded of
the celebrated remark of Lord By
ron, that 'war is a game which,
were tho people wise, kings would
tiAt pliy at." Tbe losses and suffer
ings fall mainly upon the mass r
the people, and yet, strange exam
ple of foily, wars for every purpose
are usually popular with them.
No man, says Dr. Johnson, can
invade the property or disturb the
quiet of his neighbor without sub
jecting himself to penalties and
suffering in proportion to tho inju
ries be has offered. But cruelty and
pride, oppression vnd partiality,
may tyranize in private famines
without control; meekness may be
trampled upon and piety insulted
without any appeal but to con"
science and to Heaven. A thou
sand methods of torture may be in
vented, a thousand acts of unkind-
or disregard may be commit-
, a thousand gratifications may
denied, and a thousand hardship
imposed without any violation
national laws. Life maybe em
bittered with hourly vexation, and
weeks, months and years be linger-
out in misery without any legal
of seperation or possibility ot
dical redress. Perhaps no sharp
anguish is felt than that which
not be complained of, nor any
greater cruelties inflicted, than some
bich no human authority can re-
