JOHN CART W RIGHT.
HON. W. P. SPRAGUE.
The Radical Candidate for
William V. Sprague, the Radical can
didate for Congress in this District,
was born near the month of Island Run,
in Bloom township, this county, on the
21st of May, IS27, and has resided in
this county all his days. The most r.f
his business life has been that of a Dry
Goods merchant, in which business he
is now engaged. In politics, he has
always been one of the most ultra of
his party, and now endorses all the
most cu'pable acts of the present Ad
ministration and of tlie last session of
Congress. As a local politician, he has
been active and energetic wherever
there has been a chance of his own aI
Tancement to political positions; but,
when he has not been a seeker, he has
kept aloof from political strifes. In
18j9, '60 '01 and '62, he represented our
State Senatorial District, composed of
part of Noble, Washington and Morgan
counties, in the Ohio Legislature. Since
then, a1 though he has always been
ready to "serve his countr)'," he has
not held any prominent political office.
Bis nomination for Congress, a'lhough
the delegation from this county 'o the
Convention was instructed to vote for
him, was not desired by any of our
leading Radical po'iticians, and has
been the cause of great disaffection in
the Radical ranks. As a man, he is so
unpopular, that there is not a leading
Radical politician in McCounelerille
that has the disposition to, or daies to
earnestly and persistently work for
him, now tht he is nominated.
Throughout Morgan County, the Radi
cals are grunib.'ing, and dec'aring that
they wH not support Mr. Sprague; and
the chances are.-from the present out
look, that he will bard y beab'e to car
ry the County. Those most sanguine
of his e'ection, concede that ho wi I not
get more than two hundred majority
in the County. AH that is necessary
to insure the e'ection of John Cart
wright to Congress, is for the Democ
racy of the other Counties of this Dis
trict to poll their full Democratic vote,
llonroe can give a Democratic majori
ty of at least 2,500 if she wil!; Wash
ington can also give a Democratic ma
jority; CPt wright will cut down the
Radical majority in Meigs and Athens;
and, take it all in all, the Democrats
have on'y to put their shou'ders to the
wheel, to carry the District by a rous
ing majority. H urrah, for Caetwright !
The following has undoubted!,
ben put in circulation for political
tffefct, to wit : That Judge Granger
bas appointed J. T. Crew Acting
Prosecuting Attorney during the
temporary absence of Mr. Jones. It
is scarcely necessary to etate that
not a word of this is true, and we
should sot have noticed it had it
eniir.ated from any other source
than that which it did. It was to
lo expected that the men who en
sraired in the ' Feform r Advance"
movement, as it is called, would de
vice other means for securing their
ends than trickery and false reports.
Such means for securing ends are
only employed by unscrupulous pol
iticians the scum, the excresence
ot political parties. Herald,
It is our opinion that if any body
put this foolish story in circulation,
it was some one who desires the
election of "William Foulke to the
position of Prosecuting Attorney
and that the "political effect" de
sired to be caused, was that which
would follow the denial of the story
by just Huch an article as we clip
from the Herald.
If a friend of Mr. Crew had started
the story, we take it that he would
have had sense enough to Lave said
that Judge Wood, not Judge Gran
ger, had dono the appointing. The
idea of Judge Granger interfering
with the local affairs of Morgan
County, when Morgaa County has
a Judge resident beie, could only
haTe originated with some of the
"r. oodles" who are attempting to
pull the fine wires for the llepubli

James T. Irvine is the name of
the fellow, who, so clumsily handles
the scissors in attempting to make
the Zancsville Signal the organ of
the Democratic party of Muskingum
County. Occasionally he writes a
little; bat, when he docs, it is with
a view either to write up James T.
Irvine, or to writedown some oth
er person. His first attempt in the
writing line, after he assumed con
trol of the Signal, we believe, u lit
tle upward of three years ago. was to
convince the Democracy of Muskin
gum County that he was not a ear
peUbagger. He didn't succeed well
at that, for, after spending a whele
campaign m his undertaking, the
Democracy repudiated him at the
polls, in a very decisive and spirited
tone of voice. Next, he conceived
that a Mr. Povglass, one of the edi
tors of the Zanesville Courier, was a
mule, because the last syllable of
Douglass' name spell Ass. Ho ar
gued that the name Douglass was a
hybrid derived from an admixture
of a Latin or Greek term with the
name of the Ass, that beautiful ani
mal so often spoken of in the Bible;
and, by a parity of reasoning, he
concluded that the man, who bore
tho name of Douglass, must bo a
mule. He wrote and published col
umn after column tu prove his posi
tion to be correct, tmd oclf ceased
when ccrlaii: prominent men of the
Democratic party, of Muskingum,
told him they were disgusted with
such nonsense. The A llow has been
very quiet since he received this
admonition, and has contented him
self with using the scissors until last
week, when he thought he saw
a chance to immortalize himself

to his silly nothings; but, rather,
we will advise him either to nsc his

From the Washington Sunday Gazette.
Hon. Allen G. Thurman, of
Ohio, as a Leader.
In glanring over the personnel
of the American Congress, which
ha just closed its labors, we are
greatly impressed with tho anoma
lous fact, that among so many bril
liant orators, profound scholars,
deep thinkers, able and learned jur
ists, practical businessmen and ex
perienced legislators, there is but
one of them nil, in both Houses, in
the general acceptation, who com
bines the peculiar and essential
qualification to be the leader of his
party; or at least, there is or.by one,
who by universal admission and
.icotiusccd consent commands that
position. Among the great party
leaders, both in England and our
own country, the difference in their
mental features has been so great,
that it is impossible to determine;
what combination of qualities are
necessary to make a successful lcad
rr in a legislative body. Tho con
trast between that most brilliant of
England's orators and leaders,
Richard Brndsley Sheridan and
Lord Castlereagh, an active busi
ness man, and a ready, although
not elegant speaker, was most mark
ed; yet both led their parties in the
political arena where giant minds
met in cenfiict.
Pitt and Fox, th great rivals
and great leaders, were as unlike
as possible in every respect; whilo
Burke, in manner, style of oratory
and intellectual character was again
entirely different from either. How
alike were Sir Robert Peel and Lord
Brougham; the former stern, harsh
and unbending, though open in his
designs and direct in accomplish
ing them; the latter smooth, tortu
ous in his manner of arriving at
the result of his policy, a very Mach
luvelli in action.
In our day how widely different
was the brilliant orator and power
ful leader, Henry Clay, from the
great orator an d statesman, Daniel
Webster. They were dissimilar in
mind, manner, eloquence, and in ev
ery other essential as they were
different in person. And yet they
were the acknowledged leaders of
great minds. "What two could be
more diverse than John C. Calhoun
and Andrew Jackson, both in their
political views, (although of the
same part)') in their manners, hab
it, and ph3r6ical and mental quali
ties? Hence it is hard, as we said
before, to fix a standard of leader
ship, to whose acquirments every
aspirant for supremacy 6houId come
The leader of to-day, to whom we
propose to refer, is the Hon. Allen
G. Thurman.of Ohio, who was elect
ed by tho Democratic party of that
State, as United States Senator to
succeed Hon. Benjamin Wade.
Judge Thurman is fifty-eight years
of age, though ho looks much 3'oun-
ger; 13 about five feet ten inches in
height, broad frame, rugged and
healthv in appearance, hair and
whiskers well mixed with gray; his
whole appearance indicating an
iron constitution. Ilia manner is
easy, affable and dignified, combi
ning harmoniously the fortifer in re
with the suaviier in modo. His hab
its are plain and simple. Ho has a
remarkable knowledge of men,
withaclear insight into character
activity, without bustle a deal
of patient energy firm, yet rcild
bold, yet courteoHS and undevia
ting in what ho concievcs to be
right. The secret of the immense
amount of labor he accomplishes, is
to be found in his methodical hab
its, the svstematic disposition of his
time and his unwearying and regu
lar attention to it.
Judge Thurman entered upon his
Senatorial duties, with the full con
fidence of his friends and those
who wero familiar with his prcri-
. t .
scntatives, bb a Judge of the buv
Prrme Court of Ohio, as Chief Jus-
ice of that Court, and as an attor-1
ney, practicing successfully in the
highest courts of the country, and
they felt assured that ho must, per
force, take rank among tho firstand
ablest of our Senators. He has not
only fulfilled the hopesof his friends,
but has exceeded. Ho has in one
session, by the display of a rare
combination of Qualities, been free
ly accorded the position of loader
of his party in the Senate.
In manner and character Judge
Thurman is more like John C. Cal
houn than any other of tho leader
of the English Parliament or of our
own Congress. He is us bold as
Douglass, without his personal in
vective. The keenness of his sar
casm, which ho generally directs
against tho measure he is discus
sing and not his opponents, is more
effective. His ianguago like Webs
ter's, is vigorous, terse, pure Eng
lish, rejecting ornamentation, free
from any kind of affectation and
marked by manly simplicity. 17m
is like Henry Clay in hisdircnt and
candid statesmanship, his sincerity,
openness and frc-d.im from equivo
cation or disguise, characteristics
which made the "sage of Ashland"
so dear to tho public heart. Mr.
Clay carried all before him by his
grace, manner and person, bril
lianco and eloquence, and commu
nicated to mor. d masses bs own
enthusiasm. Judge Thurman com
mands attention, and carries con
viction by tho quiet yot forciblo
earnestness of his manner.- Hi or
alorj', .'ike Calhoun's, is plain.
strong, wise, concise, and impress
ive; unlike Calhoun ho is fond of
illnstration, his great power con
sists in tho plainness of hi.- propo
sition, in tho clearness of his loeic
and his earnest sincerity. His
longest speeches rarely reach three
quarters of an hour in length, and
ho nevT fails to make pl:nn and
simple to the ordinary intellect his
views on the subject under discus
s:on. Ilia manner of speaking is
rapid, forcible and pleasing. lie
is never tedious and never tires;
disdaining all rhetorical flourishes
and circumlocutions ho comes M
once to tho point; possessed of an
analytical mind and a fund ot good
common st.nse he makes clear his
vi2ws and leavea no doubt as to his
meaning. As a debator ho is the
peer of any in the Senate, which
arises from hi extended experi
once; his quickness of repartee, his
thorough seif-possession and con
trol of self, with a qniet humor,
which never faiN to disarm the
feelings of bitterness, which too oft
en arise from debate, and to win
tho respect of his opponent, lln is
always most thoughtful and respect
ful to his political opponents. This
taken in connection with the pow
erful mogetism of his manner gives
him in return the respect and kind
liest feelings of those he opposes;
but in his attack on what he con
ceives to be wrong he is most deter
mined and implacable. Judge
Thurman excels as a leader in a
legislative body, where his extend
ed legal and general business knowl
edge can control and direct, but ho
has no taste or inclination for that
party leadership, which coi-sists in
tho dexterity and schrewdness of
guiding and controlling men for
parly ends. Without intending in
vidious comparisons we look m
vain for any other in either branch
of Congress who has had accorded
him the position of leader, either
through his indomitable will, ener
gy and ability, as was the case with
the late Ihadeus Stevers, or nke
Henry Clay, who led hm party b'
his giant intellect, brilliant orato
ry and fascination of manner.
We find able lawyers, good busi
ness men, excellent parliamentari
ans, men of experience and business
habits, brilliant orators and most
ready and ablo dbators, but none
possessing that rare coinbii.ation of
qualities necessary for a popular
leader as in the case of Thadeus
Steven s or Judge Thurman, both
leaders of opposite parties and
most diverge in their qualities, ex
cept, indeed, in their readiness of
debr.te and indomitable energy, and
in these respects differing as widc
ly as possiblo. Stevens in debate
was personal, bitter, sever and
stung with sharpest sarcsm, while
Thurman equally as ready, is good
humored, pleasant and genial, and
instead of leaving a scar he awakes
a smile. Mr, Stevens very frequent
ly carried his point with his party
through the use of tho lash, his
weApon was fear, often disda'.ncd to
argue the point but compelling obe
dience with a sneer.
Judge Thurman commands tho
respect and co-operation of those
who willingly acknowledge him as
leader by Irs great ability, honesty
of purpose, and the wonderful mag
netism of his manner. To be lead
er m either branch of Congress is
a position of which any ono may
well be proud, so seldom is there
found any who possess tho necessa
ry qualities to fit him for such an
honor. Tho more creditable too
when held by tho possession of the
beti, finest and kindest traits of
character with which God enables
man, as is the case. of Judge Thur
man, wnose moral virtues are not
eclipsed hy the intellectual powers
which havo enabled him to rise to
the exalted position ho now occu
pies. It is a remarkable fact that
with all the acknowledged ability,
experience, personal merit and pub
lic spirit, which exists to 6uch a
large degree in the forty-second
Congress, there is but one who has
had assigned him the place of lead
er, while in the past 6uch men as
Webster, Clay, Calhoun, Clayton,
Silas Wright, Cass, Douglass and
others in both Houses were fully
recognized during the same period
of time aa unquestioned leaders.
Judge Tlurraan, in tho estimation
of those who have witnessed his
most brillinnt and successful career
in the Senate during the past ses
sion, takes rank a? a leader with
those giants who occupied so great
a space in the political history of
our country twenty years ago.
Judge Thurman is a statesman of
broad and liberal views, a devoted
adherent of his party, an enthusias
tic lover of his country and the
Union, and better than all, . is
what all onr public officials should
bo, no matter what their party aj

tion near Jetz to Montmedy. This ia a
town on the railroad from near Thionville
to Mezieres, and is soma 25 miles north

Crown rriucc? One report says he ws on
his way to join the Prussian main army. If
this be so, the great battle of the war is to

in the country between the Moselle and the

French and German, confront each other,
