der of DEMOCRATIC CENTRAL COM
THE STINCHCOMB MEETING.
On Saturday evening, ns per no
"tice given, Major J. V. Stinch
comh addressed, in front ot the
Court House, the people on the
claims of the Prohibition party.
The meeting was largely attended
for an evening meeting ; there be
ing between three hundred And fifty
and four hundred persons present
about one-third ol whom wero vo
The Major opened his speech by
giving his past political history
which was to the effect, that from
1S44 to 1861 he was an nncomprom
ising Democrat, and from 1861 to
tho beginning of the present cam
raicn, te had been an ardent Re
publican. .Now, he takes position
as a prohibitionist, for the reason
that the mission of the Eepublican
Party has ended there not being
a slave or a shackle in the land, and
the authority of the Federal Gov
ernment being recognized in every
State of the Union.
He took up the present position
of the two old political parties, and
compared them, one with the other,
and he oonld find little or no diff
erence in them, except that one was
in power and wanted to stay in,
and the other was out of power and
wanted to get in.
He gave the Republican parly
full credit for putting down tho re
bellion, and eulogized their legisla
tion relative to reconstruction, but
he hooted the idea that Republican
politicians are howling about the
Democracy desiring to undo i?aid
He stamped the Liquor IrifSc of
the country as the twin brother of
slavery, and thought it tho duty of
every well wisher of the country to
forsake tne old political parties,
which are tied hand and foot by
political alliances with Liquor vens
ders, and cast their votes for the
Candidates of the Prohibition party.
The Major's speech was listened
to with interest by men of all par
ties; and, 6trange to Bay, Hcpubli
cans condemned it as a Democratic
speech, and Democrats, on the oth
er hand, proclaimed it nothing but
a Black Republican speech. How
ever, the Prohibitionists thought it
the best Prohibition speech ever
delivered in this town.
SPRAGUE'S STYLE OF ELECTIONEERING.
Almost every day we are told of
lome of W. P. Sprague's attempts at
electioneering. They are so shallow,
always exciting laughter at Sprague's
expense, and so generally disgusting,
that it is well enough to publish some
of them, in order to 6how the charac
ter of the man the Republicans are at
tempting to elect to Congress.
A day or two after his nomination,
he met Abraham Post, a wagoner
this village, on the street, and rushing
up to him, he grasped his hand, shook
it heartily, and inquired after Post's
welfare and that of his family. Post
answered him, and passed on down
street, stopped the first person he met
and asked him what was the matter
with Sprague, relating what h'ad occur
red, and remarking that although he
had met Sprague almost every day for
years past, that Sprague never spoke
to him unless on business. The friend
Post was interrogating, replied, "Why
don't you know that William Peter has
been nominated for Congress ?" Post
went off scratching his head, and
thought he "smelled a mice."
About the same time, it was adver
tised that the Presbyterian Jlite Socie
ty -rould meet at the residence of Ifa
jcr F. SI. Kahler, and that the money
dilated would be appropriated toward
purchasing a church organ. Now,
while Sprague is considered pretty lib
eral in his donations to his own church,
the Baptist, he never has been celebra
ted for his liberality toward other de
nominations; yet, remembering that
he was a candidate for Congress, and
thinking he might need a few Presby
terian votes, he called upon Major
Kahler a day or so before the holding
of the Mite Society, and gave him five
dollars, apologizing for his inability to
attend the meeting of the Society, and
telling him that the money was his
mite toward purchasing the organ.
McConnelsvi le has three barber
shops in it, all conducted by colored
men. One of these, Richard Eilbe's,
Sprague has never been accustomed to
patronize. Since his nomination, how
ever, he has given Bilbe's shop an oc
casional call; and, when he has done
so, he has thrown out one or two "feel
ers," to ascertain how the voters ot the
establishment design casting their bal
lots for Congressman. In doing so, he
so completely betrayed the object of
his patronage, that Charles Ui'l, an
employee of Eilbe's became disgusted
and blowed it.
It may seem a little small in us to
publish such matters about a candidate;
but, most tru'yt-it is not near so small
to publish as it is to commit the deeds.
AY hen a man has fc poor an opinion of
his fellow-meri, as to suppose he can in
fluence the voters of ihp Presbyterian
Church by making a donation of five
dollars to aid in buying" said church an
organ ; when a man will step out of his
usual custom by making believe that
he is a man's warm friend and much
interested in the welfare of his family
in order to influence his vote; when a
man will say by his act that a fellow
man will sell his vote for the patronage
of a ten cent 6have under such cir
cumstances, we think we are excusable
for publishing small matters, for

The Great Radical Leader.
Wendell Phillips, on Prussia.
Wen Jell Phillips, who shares
with John Brown, Fred. Douglass
and Charles Sumner, tho paternity
ot the Radical Republican party,
and who is recognized as its ablest
advocate through the press and
from the rostrum, has an eloquent
articlo in the National Standard of
this week, taking ground against
Prussia. "We quote it entire. It is
recognized as of such importance,
coming as it does from the most
promiuent Radical leader in the
nation, that the Associated Press
telegraphed tho article entire, on
Thursday night. It is as follows :
Bismarck, the ablest, most trn
scrupulous and imperious of Stale
managers, had it in his power to
have planned peace between Re
publican France and Prussia for the
next two ceninrias. meanwhile de

ly or angrily be flun nway such an
opportunity 6f strt-ngthtnino; his
own lar.d in the gratitude of France
and admiration of the world. In
stead of this he did all that in him
lies to insure that immortal hate
and undying purpose of rcvengo,
which will breed up the next gen
eration of Erenchraan for nothing
ee but to put the f ri-color, nomc
day, over Berlin. The next gener
ation of Prussia will have cause to
wcej) that at this hour, so great in
possibilities, Prussia had no states,
manto reap tho harvest her great
est captain, Moltke, had got for her.
The man we all thought a Sully, an
Ostenstiern, turns out only an
adroit manager, second lieutent to
Moltke, and tho willing tool of a
bigot King. No breadth, no foro
sight, no large instincts of humani
ty, always the highest wisdom.
Prussia armed to vindicate her
right to manage her own affairs.
She nurches to Paris to -invade
France's right to do the same. Her
path lies over the capital of the
world, the home of two millions of
men, as well as ot science, art, lit
erature and civilization the capi
tal of great military nation, whoso
swift defeat 6hows that, dragooned
as nhe was to the fielJ, it was only
a seeming war she waged. He nev

umphed over elavish refuse, which
could be bought or 'whipped into
counterfeiting her. Now, m this
insolent attempt to ri'.?r,!av his
power and parade a sham victory,
ho euhjocts this great city to the
horrors of war. Humanity itself
would baldly weep if tho pestilence
delivered Pari9, leaving neither
peasant nor princeling to tell the
tale at Berlin.
The tears and curses of the civil
izsd world blast the German laur
els. Napoleon's fall was speedy, in
icss man tnirty aas. x'russia s is
quicker still. She entered Sedan

loving admiration cf the world.
She left it followed by tho loathing
and contempt ot both continents.
She baulked the hopes of tho age
A new power, born within the mem
ory of living men, we supposed her
oiood was the blood ot this century.
Her fall insults our civilization.
Bloodthirsty and greedy, an
scrupulous and overbearing beyond
tho Bourbons and Hapsburcs, the
Phillipses, tho Charleses, of bygone
days, Bhe 16 not a nation, only r.n
overgrown army, a herde of brig
ands too strong for thoir civilized
neighbors. Our barbarous South,
flaunting Libby prison and Ander-
sonville in the face of Christendom,
may justly call across the ocean to
tho black eagle. "Art thou to be
come a9 one with us ?" We rejoice
that Providence thus burries under
its own follow this new and dreaded
military power, and robe it of the
means to cripple the rising democ
racy as it might have done had it
respect of the world.
We sympathize with Germany,
thus disgraced by her princes, as
France, has been by Napoleon. Let
her have the samo pity extended to
her that the world gave to Paris
under the usurper's heel.
Our Government should utter the
verdict of civilization and liberty
on this bold barbarism. It should.
at least, protest against unoffending
France the insult to the spirit ot
tho ngo. Tho oldest republic, the1
master power of the next century,
6hould speak for humanity amid
this brftatblebs aad cowardly si
lence of kings.

On the Public Debt.
The Radicals are making a great
blow about paying off the National
Debt. Senator Allen G. Thurman,
in his speech at Mozart Hall, Cin
cinnati, on the 10th instant, exposes
their claims in the following man
"I have now some brief remarks
to make about the public debt. The
administration is claiming great
credit for a reduction of this debt.
The first thing I have to say is, that,
taking tho whole debt together the
unwritten as well as tho written
there were more than ten dollars of
it paid undor Johnson's Adminis
tration for every dollar paid under
Grant's. But if we loos at tho writ
ten dobt alone, thero were pnid. jn
dcr Johnson's administration, S147,
000,000, while the total of the pay
ments under Grant is but 112,000,
000. When, therefore, Radical ora
tors, as is their custom, charge all
their own crimes, errors, and short
comings upon Andrew Johnson, and
claim credit for what has been done
under Grant, it is right to remind
them that far more of the debt was
discharged under the former than
has been under the latter.
But. in truth, what credit is due
to either administration for the re
duction? None whatover. Whoso
money paid tho debt? Was it the
money of Presidents and Congress
men, or that of the people? It was
tho pooplo that raised the money,
anJ their agenre, tho President and
Con cress, are no more entitled to
the credit ot the payment than w an
uttornev who discharges a noto of
his principal with money placed in
his hands by the latter lor that pur
pose. No, my fel low-citizens, what
ever credit is duo for the reduction
of the debt belongs to no administra
tion, to no Congress, to no party,
but to tho entire people of the Uni
But 1 must not stop hero and leave
unexposed the stupendous hypocn
sy of this claim to merit on the part
of our Kadical rulers, llicr would
'have tho people to understand that
they intend to, and will, pay off the
debt, and they ask the support of
tho people because of that intent and
capacity. Whereas, the truth is,
they do not mean to paj" the ucht
They mean it to bo perpetual. Pav
it off? Why, what would become
of their entire system ot National
Banks were it paid off? That sys
tern wholly rests upon the public
debt. It is the dt-bt tha constitutes
the security for its circulation, with
out which it would not enjoy public
conhdence lor an hour. Kemovc
that security by a payment of the
debt, anJ the whole fabric would
tumble to pieces in ninety days.
Now, will those who rule tho Radi
cal party give up those banks?
Have they the power to do it if t hey
would ? Look at tho House of Rep
resentatives. There are, in that
House, according to the statement
ofalcadinc, Radical, not lcs than
seventy stockholders of National
Banks nearly one third of the
whole House. Have they any pow
er there? Jf 3-011 doubt it, hear
what your own Senator, Mr. Sher
man, Chairman of the Finance Com
mittee, said in the"Senato, on the
13th of last Julj-.
A funding bill had passed the
Senate, requiring among other
things, that the banks, instead of
tho six per cent. Government bonds
the' now own, and which are held
as security for their circulation,
should take other bonds bearing u
lower rate of interest. It diJ not
require them to exchange tho for
mer, pocket tho premium they bear
and, with the residue of the pro
ceeds, buy the new bonds. It was
a perfectly fair requirement, as I
then thought and 6till think, und
so thought a majority ol the Senate,
notwithstanding a strenous opposi
tion on tho part of the
tanks. Bat it was otherwise in
the House. Nothing could induce
that bod to agree to tho proposi
tion, and, after two Conference
Committees had sat upon it, it was
given up. Reporting the result of
the conference to tho Senate, Mr.
Sherman said :
"1- do not soo how wo can go be
fore the people of the United States
and ask them to lend us gold at par
for our bonds, when we refuso to
require agercies of our own creation
to take them ; when we even refuse
to require new banks not yet or
ganized to take these new bonds,
and, when we refuso to require old
banks, which havo made on the av
erage from fifteen to twenty per
cent, annually upon tho franchise
derived from the United States, to
aid us to this oxtenl in funding the
public debt. But. sir, the voto of
tho House shows tho great power
of the National Banks. It is so
great, at least in the House, that in
order to securo a funding bill, we
have been compelled to abandon all
provisions in regard to National
But the argument does not stop
here. Tho Funding Bill, to which
I hav alluded, became a law on the
14th of last July. I observe that
the Republican National Executive
Committee, in their address to the
people, claim great credit on ac
count of this law. Now, Jet us see
what is the object of this law,' nd
its material provisions. Tho object
13 to refund the Five-twenty bonds
in other bonds bearing a lower rate
ot interest. All these Five-twenty
bonds are now duo, and can be paid,
as fast as tho Government can raise
tho means. But this law contem
plates an extension of the debt, rep
resented by these bonds as follows:
S200,000s000 for ten years, $300 000
000 for fifteen years, and 1,C00,
000.000 for thirty years. If the
debt bo thus extended, the Govern
ment will have no power to pay a
dollar of it for ten years, and, at the
expiration of that period, can only
pay 200,000,000. Then it must
A, X . a

pay another cent, and, when those
wan uvo years more Dotoro it can
years havo gone by, it can pay but
300.000,000, while as to the main
body of the debt, the 51,000,000,000,
it will remain deprived, for fifteen
years more, or thirty years in all,
of any power to make any payment
whatever. For, observe, the right
to make payment before the matur
ity of the bonds is not reserved ; so
the sehemo Is to prolong a portion
of the debt ten years, another por
tion fifteen years, and the chief por
tion thirty" years, or tho life of a
And yet these men, who thus
seek to continue tho existence of
the debt until nearly all who hear
me will be in their graves, talk of
paying it off, and ask unbounded
applause from the people. No more
transparent hypocrisy, no plainer
instance of double dealing with the
people, could be conceived.
1 again athrm, ana tor the reasons
have already stated, and others
that I might state, did time permit,
that they neither moan nor wish to
pay off the debt. Ihcy want it to
be perpetual, to servo as a founda
tion for banns, to bo a source of
profit to stock jobbers and specula
tors, to put mcney in the pockets
ot capitalists by its annual drain of

crease, or sustain, tho political in

EUROPEAN WAR NEWS.
News of Sept. 24.
Tho most Important feature of
tho cable dispatches this morning
is the text ct Bismarck's circular
concerning tho Provisional Govern
ment in Franco, cnt:cising tho man
ifesto of Jules Favrc, and pointing
out the road to peace. Iho paper
is in the imperative mood, and indi
cates clearly enough that Prussia
feels her power, and ift resolved to
use it to the utmost. The blockade
of Paris is complete, and tho only
news from the city is that brought
by an enterprising newspaper cour
ier, who ran the picket lines, and
was permitted by tho Prussian com
mander to proceed to the coast.
Tho disastrous dutet ot the rrench
under Ducrot, on the lUtli, is con
firmed. The Zouaves exhibited dis
graceful cowardice, flying from tho
field without firin-r a gun, but the
green Mobile Guards behaved wel
under fire. This defeat, it is baid
has determined General Trochu to
act solely on tho defensive, keeping
his men behind the lorlihcations
hereafter. The Prussian cavalry
aro raiding through the county in
a promiscuous sort of a way, meeting
with I1UI0 or no resis'unce. A force
of unknown strength appears to b
moving towards Tours, and th
Government officials thero are pro
paving for another, removal. In
Paris the attitude ot tho Keds is
still threatening and Prussian offi
cers anticipate a possible welcome
from tho people in prefcronco to
submission to the anarchy that
would follow tho triumph of the
ultras. The Prussians have suffer
ed a severe repulse at Toul and aro
merely maintaining a sort of block
ado of the place at present. Ar
rangements have been made to in
undate the country around Lille on
tho approach of the enemy. It
reported that a shell sot fire to tho
theater at Slrasburg, and that two
hundred persons, mostly women
and children, perished in the burn
ing building. Rumors continuu to
circulate that Russia is preparing
for a demonstration on the Black
Sea, and perhaps, intends to push
for the Dardanelles. Yellow fever,
imported from Cuba, is raging in
the Mediterranean ports ot Spain.
Thero have been already four hun
dred deaths in Barcelona, and it
said that the pcoplo are flying from
the city in thousands.
News of Sept. 25.
A great battle is reported to havo
raged all day on Friday north
Paris, between Pontoi and Isle Ad
am. There is a rumor that a sharp
engagement occurrod on Friday at
Chateau Dun, fifty miles from
Tours, between a iorce ot German
cavalry and the Garde Mobile, in
which the cavalry was defeated.
Over 100 officers and about 2000
French solaiers capilated at Toul
Tho report that the Army of Paris
has revolted is deried. Tne disturb

German accounts state that Bis

King opposed every proposition,
and declared that France should

Prussia to make peace, in her capi
tol and in the place ot her sover

that there aro 650,000 German
troops in France, consisting of
twenty-one army corps; very few
of tho- Landwehr are of tho number.
Throo fresh Army corps are under

News of Sept. 26.
Tho war dispatches contain noth
ing of special importance. Several
engagements have taken placo in
the open country between Paris
and Blots. No particulars arc giv
en, but they arc said to bo without
serious results. Marshal Bazaine
again attempted to make an escape
toward Thionville on Friday. After
a Kharp fight, wsis driven into Metz.
Thero is an intense feeling against
Prussia m England, owing to the
failure of the peace negotiations.
Another immense Democratic meet
ing was held in London on Satur
day. Placards were extensively
posted favoring aclivo interference
b.vEngland in behalf of Franco. Tho
workingmen at Brussels are man
ifesting their hostility to Prussia.
Advices from Paris, per baloon,
stato that the city is completely
surrounded by the enemy at a dis
tance of from two or three thousand
yards from the outlaying forts. The
attitude of the population is roport-i
ed very determined.
News of Sept. 27.
The Cincinnati Gazette, ot
2Sth, says on the suution :
Tho dispatches yesterday morn
ing stated that a great battle raged
all day on Friday between Pontoise
and Is!o Adam, stations on the
Nortern Railroad, distant from
Pans respectively cifihteen and
twenty-four miles. If any 6uch
battle ocenred and the dispatches!
to liiiglisb journals in regard to it
were bo contradictory that they re
fused to credit them we are with
out any intelligence whatever as to
tho result, The latest news con
cerning military operations in the
v:ncinity of Paris is of a severe en
gagoment which is said to havo
taken placo on Fridap, tho day on
which the battle at Pontoise is re
orted to have occurred, at Fort
Valericn. A special correspondent
telegraph that tho Prussians at
tempted to take this stronghold,
which is situated west of Paris, 011
the left bank of the Seine. They
gained poscssion ot an outer re
doubt, and were driven back at the
point of tho bayonet, aftor euffering
heavy losses, while the loss of the
French was trifling. ThiB news
has come from only a source, and
its authenticity may bo regarded as
doubtful. There is no other news
in regard to the siege of Paris that
is of importance.
Ono of those correspondents, to
whom Bismarck is in tho habit of
telling his plans, has gained access
to the Crown Prince, and from him
learns that it is not the intention of
the Prussians to either bombard or
assault Paris. On tho other hand
another correspondent writes that
the Prussians aro preparing scaling
ladders, lor what purpose are
these, if not for an assault ? Still
another correspondent writes .from
Mclz that no active operations will
be undertaken against that place
until the culimination of events at
Paris, and this is expected to hap
pen within three weeks. Is it
thought the city cau bo starved or
frightened into submission within
thattimo? or was the first corres
pondcut misinformed, and aro both
u bombardment and an assualt in
tended ? At Strasbourg a regular
siege and hoavy bombardment were
instituted, and now we aro told the
assault is to take place within
week, tho troops to engage in it
having been already designated by
lot. Is there reason to believe that
any d;ffercnt plan is to bo pursued
So far as regards tho 6pirit of
France, we havo but scant informa
tion. No reports of disorder in Pur
is havo been received. Onejourua
of warm French sympathies, has
accounted for tho firing that the
Prussians assert they heard in the
streets of tho citp, by saying it was
onlv the Gardes Mobile engaged in
target practice. But it is hardly
probable that General Trochu woul
allow his ammunition to be wasted
in blazing away at men of straw
when ho may need all he ban get to
shoot Prussians. It. is significant
too. that General Trochu bus been
compelled to issue an order denoun
cing the Hteruest penalties against
cowardice, pillage desertion, and
other uiisoldierly conduct. Such
an order would hardly have been
issued if good order was fvery
where pevailing. jMarseuie is re
ported to bo arming "with her tra
Tho North German Gazette, in an
article on the situation, says that
whatever may be the designs of
Prussia with relerenco to France,
she certainly does not intend the
restoration ot the B-jnapartes. But
the rumors that were widely circu
lated a week ago will be revived
again by the statement of the Ma
drid correspondent of the New
York Times, who writes that at the
j Prussian Embassy, in that city, it
is openly avowed to be the inten
tion of Bismarck to treat.only wih
Napoleon, and that after a peace
has been ratified, he will appoint a
Regency. This correspondent a!to
says that Prussia is in active negot
iations with Spain to put a Prussian
Prince on the Spanish throne,
to pay Spain million reals, give her
part of Algiers and Gibraltar and
help her annex Portugal. It will
be remembered that yesterday our
dispatches stated that the Minister
ial organ in Madrid said "In two
or three days there would bo joy
ous news for Spain." Is this tho
news to which that organ refers?
If it is, is it impossible that Eng
land shall not look with somo
favor on tho cession of Gibralter by
Prussia to Spain ? It is bryond all
question that tho pronounced sym
pathy of English workmgracn with
France will not force tho Govern
ment to active resistance? Is it
qui to ceitain that the continental
powers would look with entire sat
isfaction on this rise of Spain?
Thus far those powers, whether
through fear of Prussia or a will
ingness to see Franco humbled,
havo held off their hands. Events
mns transpire that will mako arm
ed intervention a necessity.

Tue negro preachers of Louisiana,
who have a society known ns the
Christian Eepublican Association, give
a bad account of the reconstructed
government in that State, saying:
"Tho Legislature, at its last regular
session, voted away $1,204,670; at the
special ten day's session it voted away
? 1,230.707, making S-',435 377, besides
the millions which they gave to the
Chattanooga and other railroads, and
the expenses of the State Government.
If this species of extravagant legisla
tion should continue a few sessions
more, all the property in the State of
Louisiana would not be sufficient to
pay the indebtedness."
