JOHN II . II E A T O N .
MEMBER BOARD OF PCBI.IC WORK,
FOR CONGRESS, 15TH DISTRICT,
JOHN CART WRIGHT.
t, The Marietta Times commends
John Cartwright, our candidate for
Congress, in this style:
"John Cartwright, our nominee for
Congress, is a well known and favora
bly known citizen of Poineroy. His
abilities are good; his judgment is
clear and sound; and his personal char
acter is absolutely unassailable. A
man of strict moderation in intellect
and temper; of cautious, but decided
opinions; and, above all, of incorrnpti
ble honesty he is exactly the person
to represent the people of the Fifteenth
District in the Federal Congress. This
is a strong commendation, but it is not
meant as commonplace puffery. We
speak what we know."
tCU The State Journal, a Radical or
gan of Richmond, Virginia, as a sort
of an apology for the poor success at
tending the Radical party in the recon
structed states, says: "The Republi
can party is beggared throughout the
entire South. Its rank and file be
long to the very poorest class, and its
leaders are, in the main, Government
office-holders living on their salaries,
or office-seekers who have neither
money nor friends to further their for
tunes." And, worse than all, the
Journal adds: "We also have the larg
est share of ignorance, and very little
of the intelligence."
tf&- A correspondent says: "I was
in Greenville on election day and saw
ex-President Johnson vote the Con
servative ticket. It is a mistake to
suppose his health is bad. He is in
fine health aud spirits. He stopped
on the streets and talked wiih his
friends in a qniet, farmer-like manner,
and seems to be very popular with all
classes of people lie is pressed to al
low his name to be used for Congress,
but he has refused up to this time. It
is believed he could be easily elected.
tQ, The address of the Republi
can Congressional Committee an
admirable bit of gestation by the
way Bays that the partj was born
of the necessities of the nation.
This might possibly be, just as a
neglected ulcer is fly-blown and
breeds maggots; but we wre incline

public demonstration in St. Louis
Jf the people of that city wish to
give General Grant something,
without the risk of being mortified
bj a refusal, let them put it to him
in any tangible shape save that of
a spotted dog. Come at him in the
phspe of a house and lot, or a horse,
and, our word iot it, be won't re
fuse. ISF A correspondent writes that
be reads the Philadelphia Inquirer
and the Cincinnati Enquirer, and
wauts to know if there is any differ
ence in the meaning of the words.
Kot so much as there is between
the words tweedledee and tweedle
dum. Theformeris derived from
the Latin inauiro. and the latter
from the French evgverir. Most
persons who use the words choose
the Latin to the French etymology-
Jgf Success makes a great differ
ence in determining whether a
man is a patriot or villian. Holden,
of North Carolina, feels the force of
that. Had he succeeded, the Rad
ical presses were ready to attribute
to "excess of patriotism," and, there,
fore, pardonab'e, the means he used
to carry the State, viz: Martial law,
disregard to the writ ot habeus cor
pus, arbitrary arrests and military
terror. Having, with all his villain
oas aids, failed, and thereby weak
ened the strength of the Radical
party in the Senate and bouse of
Congress, be is denounced with be
coming bitterness by the leading
Radical presses. The Devil uses bis
own sometimes very scurvily.

DEATH OF FARRAGUT.
From the Cincinnati Gazette, 15th inst.
Few if any of the heroes of the late
war have more justly earned the love
and admiration of their countrymen
than the brave 6ailor whose death we
chronicle this morning. David G.
Farragut was born in Tennessee to
ward the close of the last century.
He was of Minorican descent. In 1810
he was appointed midshipman in the
United Stares navy; served in the war
of 1812 under Commodore Porter in
the Essex, and after the capture of
that vessel in the line of battle ship
Independence. He was afterward pro
moted to a lieutenancy, and was order
ed to the West Indian station. In
1847 he was placed in command of the
twenty-gun ship Saratoga and did good
service in the Mexican war.
When the rebellion broke out, he at
once took his stand on the side of the
nation, forgetting the ties of birth
place and section which drew bo many
less patriotic men from their alleci
ance. The capture ot New Orleans,
in which the navy performed such
splendid part, showed the people that
the right man had been put in the
right place, when he had been made
commander of the Department of the
The events of that grand achieve
mentrunning the gauntlet of the reb
el ports -are too familiar to our read
ers to require a detailed description.
After the capture of the Cresent
City, the fleet sailed up the Mississip
pi, taking Natchez, and bombarding
the stronghold of Vicksburg. Low
water compelled a return to New Or
leans before the reduction of Vicks
burg could be effected. A grateful
Congress promoted Farragut to the
rank of Admiral, he being the first
officer upon whom this distinction was
In March, 1S63, he took his fleet by
the batteries of Port Hudson, and co
operated with Gen. Grant in the siege
After many minor services, he at
tacked the forts of Mobile bay, in the
summer of 1864, and captured them
after one of the most exciting contests
in our naval warfare.
At the close of the war he was or
dered to the European squadron, and
visited the principal ports of Great
Britian and the continent, every where
receiving the most hearty welcome.
He returned to this country in 1868.
For some time past his health had
been feeble, and the recent hot weath
er seriously affected him. His illness
increased, and he gradually grew weak
er, until death put an end to his earth
A blunt, but warm-hearted and gen
erous man. an unwearied and incor
ruptible officer, he won the affection
of all who knew him. No obstacle
was too formidable, no corruption
tempting enough, to turn him troni
the path of duty and honor. He has
pone to his grave after sixty years of
honorable service, to live in the grate
ful memories of his countrymen as
long as the nation's perils and the na-
tion's protectors shall be cherished.
"Honor comes a pilgrim gray,
To bless the turf that wrars his clay;
And Freedom shall awhile repair
To dwell a weeping hermit there."

To the consumate diplomacy of
Richelieu was it d ue that Protestant
ism, as represented by the German
f rotestant League, was not over
thrown, and, although he was both a
Cardinal and one of the noblesse,
he, the greatest of French states
men, struck the sturdiest blow at
class privileges and feudal despot
ism they had then ever experienced.
France alone among the Catholic
nations never yielded to the de
mands of the Ultramontane party
at Rome, bat preserved intact the
rights of the Gallican Church. We
now come to tho time, when,
throughout Europe, during the
reigns ot Louis XIV, XV, Toryism
iu England and despotism every
where were triumphant, and when
superstition and religion and mon
archy and divinity were considered
synonymous terms. England had
witnessed the rule of the fanatical
Puritan, had felt the iron band of
Cromwell, and then cast herself
headlong into the reaction under
Charles 11, and liberty had become
the bete noir of society. First
through ilohero, Racine, Rousseau
and Voltairo, France rescued man
from the long night of mental deg
redation into which the reformed
churches, with the Ancient Mother
Church, had fallen, influencing and
molding tho character of the great
Frederick of PrussiR; civilizing bar
baric Russia with art, science and
literature; ridiculing the mummer
ies of the dark ages, aud emancipa
ting human thought. And when
all this had been done, amid the
terror of Kings and the applause of
the people, rrance proclaimed the
Revolution. A few years only be
fore, the French nation, thoroughly
approving, though at first the kind
hearted Louis XVI was unwilling,
France iccognizcd tho nationality
of the American colonies and
through Lafayette and Rochambcao
rendered that aid which secured to
tho United States its freedom. The
wars of tho French -Revolution, in
the midst of which Napoleon ap
peared, found every dynasty in
continental Europe, and the Tory
party in England, fighting for feu
dalism and the "divine rights" o!
Kings against tho people of France,
and tho principles of political and
religious freedom. Napoleon, as
Emperor, was only a crowned dem
ocracy, crowned from the d:re ne
cessity of the caso, just as ancient
Rome often gave dictatorship to us
noblest citizens, that with Imperial
authority be might, as he did,
break forever the power of tho mon
archies of Europe to deprive the
pcoplo ot constitutional govern
ment. It was that fa':t, and not the
ambition of Napoleon, that united
hordes of Russian and Austrian des
potism to the rest of king and
priest-ridden Europe against "the
grand nation. The coalition
against Napoleon can be proven to
have arisen mainly from the fear
entertained of tho triumph of the
liberal literature and politics of
France, and the dread entertained
by aristocracrics and royal families
of final overthrow.
As the event has proved the de
feat of Napoleon at last, only gave
the feudal tyrants short respite from
tho rising tide of reform and the
f ox and other leading liberals of
England sympathized strongly
with the first Napoleon, Tho after
throes of liberalism in France,
brought with tbem tho overthrow
of Tory Cabinets every -where. The
revolution of 4o roused to freedom
the entire world, and France, as ev
er, sounded the tocsin.
The present Emperor first rescu
ing bis country from the followers
of Robespierre and tho Marianne
who would annul marriage, abolish
tho church, destroy wealth and re
store primitive barbarism pro
ceeded to remodel the agricultural
districts till the great mass of the
people should own ard till their own
land, set up banking systems bj
which at low rates of interest the
Government money surplus should
always be lent out to the people
and kept in circulation; replaced all
the crowded portions of French cit
ies, once festering with crime and
disease, by broad streets and venti
lated blocks, and raised the nation
from bankruptcy and ruin to
wealth and an enormous and remu
nerative comcerce. To-day,
France has a smaller national debt
than England, and pays far (ess in
terest than the United States. She
had universal suffrage before it was
adopted in America, and although
the licentious press of the Jacobin
is restricted, life and property are
safer in Franco than anywhere
else in the world. The satisfaction
of thepeoplo is sufficiently attested
by a plebiscite of five to one in fa
vor of a constitutional Napoleon -c
Napoleon having consolidated his
power, and, by the arts of peaeo,
made the Empire prosperous, in due
time found Russia ready to over
whelm Turkey, and, from conquer
ed Constai.tmople, preparing to dic
tate Tartar terms to Europe. As
Lord Clarendon and Kinglake, the
historian, have admitted, he fairly
dragged England into the war, res
cued Turkey, and the English army,
although repulsed at the Redan,
followed the victorious .trench
through the Malakoff into fallen
Sevastopol. Tbe next grand event
of the Empire was the Italian war.
Italy, oppressed lor ages, was
about to be totally subdued by Aus
tria. Southern Italy, under Fran
cis (Bomba). suffered Bourbon tyr
anny. Lombardy and Venitia were
held by despotic Austrian Viceroys,
while Par rn a. Mod en a, Tseeaoy and
Lucca were held by Austrian Arch
dukes and Duchesses. Piedmont,
alone free, was now to bo subdued.
A vast army marched to what seem
ed sure conquest. England and
Prussia looked on, the one indiffer
ent, the other sympathizing with
the Hapebarg. rrnnce alone rais
ed ber mailed hand, hurled a great
army into Italy, fought the victories
of Magenta aud Solferiao, atd then
presented the rescued country the
priceless boon of free Lombardy,
with its splendid Milan. The treaty
of Villa-Franca was so worded that
all the rich duchies between Pied
mont and the Roman States in a
few months joined united Italy, and
the kingdom of -the two Sicilies,
with Napoleon's connivance, as a
necessary consequence became Vic
tor Emmanuel's. Again through
the diplomancy ot France, Italy
joined hands with Prussia in the
late war, and Austria was forced to
yield Venitia also to Italy.
The French influence iu Russia
has created there a liberal party.
The intervention of France in Italy
so despoiled Austria that she was
forced to adopt free Constitutional
Government, and to rcstoro the an
cient privileges of the Kingdom of
Hungary. The occupation of Rome
by French troops prevented
tho samo city from being occupied
by the Austrian and Spanish
troops, which would have crushed
liberty every where w:th an iron
hand. Bismarck undertook his
war with Austria after conferences
with Napoleon at Biarritz and
Bencdetti at Berlin, receiving the
countenance of French diplomacy
in Europe, essential to his success,
gained the victory and then re
pudiated his share of the compact.
Consolidating Germany, the Ilcrr
drives good blind George of Han
over into exile, obliterates the
kingdom from tho map, levies a
forced loan, a la Italian banditti,
upon Frankfort, despoiling her of
her ancient freedom and making
her a mere Prussian provincial
town, and then appropriates North
Germany to herself. Germany
seems united to-day only because
she is overawed. With a military
rigor t.o other country knows in
all tbe conquered Stales, the en
tire able-bodied male population
are forced into the army, and am
ple revenge is thus taken for tbe
fact that before the last Austro
Prussian war almost all Germany
pronounced for Austria ai.d hated
Prussia. Nations do not forget
their hates or tbe humiliation of
conquest and defeit in a day, and
the States of South Germany as yet
unconquered, with dissatisfied
Schleswig Holstein, Hanover and
Saxony, will give Prussia trouble
when the presence of French troops
gives the anti-Prussian pariy secur
ity in the expression of their sym
pathies. Bismarck, unsatisfied with suc
cess and the prospect of united
Germany, sought every opportu
nity to thwart Napoleon m his de
mands for guarntccs to sustain a
needful balanco of power. That he
might quiet the rising turbulence
of ihe Liberals at home, and humil
iate France, he intrigues with thoj
military adventurer. Prim, who,
with armed bands, governs Spain.
The Spanish people did not choose
Leopold of Prussia for their king
ae the vast majorityof the Spanish
people are in tho lowest abasement
of ignorance, and had no voice m
tho matter. On the contrary, ad
vices tell us that the Spanish pecp'e
are pleased with the course France
The placing of a Prussian Prince
on the Spanish throne would have
sandwiched France between two
Prussians, and reduced ber to a se
cond or third rate power, while the
safety of all Europe wou'd have
been endangered. Ever sinco Prus
sia was merely the Electorate of
Brandenburg she has gained all her
possessions by force alone, with no
excuse but the law of conquest from
the absorption of Silesia to the
obliteration of Hanover.
When Napoleon refused to accept
the withdrawal of Leopold as a
finality, and demanded guarantees
from the King of Prussia, he acted
upon two jut reasons: First Prus
sia bad before distinctly promised
that her Princes should not mount
the Spanish throno, and had viola
ted the promise. The mere word
of tbe Prussian Minister had not
been worthy of credence since the
treaty of Prague. In that treaty
Prussia promised Schiewig-Hol-stem
a voto of the enure people as
to their choice between Denmark
and Prussia, a measure vielded to
the generous demands of France,
bat she has, by military force, pre
vented any 6uch vote from being
taken. J'apoIeon'& 6econd reason
was that in international law the
head of every royal family is held
responsible tor the political acts of
all its members, and to every states
man, or well informed person, it is
evident that the King of Prussia's
statement that Priuce Leopold was
acting independently was a uiiseia
blo subterfuge, as such a thing in
the light of tho late accession of
Prince .Georgo to the throne of
Roumania, and the intrigues of
Bismarck, become obscured.
The impression that the royal
family of Prussia is favorable to free
institutions no roar can believe, un
less he ignores history. The great
Elector and tho great Fredurick
were as absolute as Cccsar. in the
State, and as brutal as Nero in their
family relations. The present
King, on mounting tbe throne
threw down the gauntlet to the
Liberal parly by announcing that
he held tho reins of power by no
gift of the people, but by the grace
of God. IIis entire political creed
was based upon the feudalism of
the middle ages, and was so con
demned by Parliamentary Liberals,
No two moro unpopular men exist
od in Europe than vKing William
and Count Bismsrck Before the
Austro-Prussian war. The Parlia
ment at Berlin refused year after
year to vote tho war budget for the
army, aud the money was illegally
taken by the King's Minister from
the treasury. This act was only
legalized when the Prussian greed
of conquest being roused and glut
ted with success and the war over,
the people indemnified the monar
chy. Since tbe war Bismarck and
the King were becoming again un
popular, and the opposition in
Parliament so powerful that sup
plies were again refused. So Bis
marck creates a new war, is again
forgiven, and the people forgetful
of aagbt save their hate for France,
again surrender to royalty the
suffrages and privileges they were
almost ready to wrest from the
throne. Bismarck, by provoking
cunningly a foreign war saves bis
owd power at tbe expense of Europe.
Tbe Germans, wIo in the days of
1848. fought tho haughty Kaiser
ot Prussia and the vast Liberal
party of Central Europe, have no
more unscrupulous enemies than
