Fourth of July at St. Mary's.
The assemblage was called to order
by S. S. Demiith, who was chosen
Moderator, when S. S. Mdt, Esq.,
was called upon and delivered a patri
otic and soul-reviving Oration, which
we give on the first page of to-day's pa.
per and ask for it a careful perusal.
Rev. Kelly and Dr. II. H. Bishop
made a few brief and pointed remarks
on the subject of the day, which we are
sorry to say our reporter failed to get
possession of.
Never had we seen a more joyful
celebration of the Anniversary of our
National Independence. The youth and
their sires all mingling together in the
festivities of the day! The following
arc some of the toasts that were offered1
Montgomery May his name always
be fresh iu the minds of the American peopfe!
De liolb May his untimely death ever
be regretted, and the glorious cause in which
lie fell, never be forgotten.
Fourth if July May we all live to
celebrate again, under the canopy of Heaven,
this ever memombl event, in oik n day .
There were many other toasts which
were not handed in.
The grounds of the celebration was
i beautiful beech grove, on the banks
of Raccoon, a stream which wiuds like
a serpent through the valley and around
St. Mary's Cathedral. The melodi
cms sounds of the violin, accompanied
by the beat of lime, as the brave lads
and fair lassies of our land tripped it
o'er the green, on
"Light fantastic toe;
makes the evening pass off like some
fairy scene of olden time ; the ladies,
God bless them, lending enchantment
to the scene. In fact, all was happi
ness; and many patriotic cheers were
wafted on the breeze from valley to bill
and from hill to hill again, as a hearty
response broke forth to toast and senti
ment. S. S. Mvkry, Esq., received the
unanimous nomination ol the whole as
sembly, as a candidate for the next
Legislature; subject,as we are informed,
to the action ot his political friends.
S. & H. V. Rail Road Company.
There was quite a large and respec
table meeting of the Directors of this
Railroad in our town, last Tuesday.--We
noticed representatives from New
York, Portsmouth, Somerset, Jackson,
Logan and other points.
Arrangements are made to complete
lhe .Road to McArthur before the going
cut of 1853. The Iron to lav the
track Irom Jackson to McArthur is con
tracted lor; and our friend, J. McDow
XLL,in company with Mr. FnNCH,pro
ceedsio Jackson to commence the lay
ing ot the track. Success must attend
every move made ou this line; no more
energetic men are to be fouud in the
State on a Railroad line, and no road
sustains a better credit, at home or
abroad.
Breed Crossed.
It is generally understood that the
codfish aristocracy, Shanghai and K.
N's. are crossing the breed up street.
Fanceir, who knows a thing or two,
is) s that the Old Line Whigs, who
belong to the 1st class, woo't cross.-

That Lie Nailed Down.
We are requested and authorized to
say, that Dr. Holland's name is not,
nor can it be used by any Know Noth
ing Council as a candidate for any of
fice by his consent. If these midnight
prowlers use honest men's names thus,
without authority, there is no telling
what they are not prepared to do. In
fact, men who take the hprrid oaths of
the McArthur Council, are prepared
for anythingperjury not excepted.
Again we say, let honest men be on

Democracy vs. Federalism.
Mr. Editor: In resuming our re
marks, we purpose going back a few
years and touching upon the men and
measures oi tnat lime. We bid it nee
essary to do so, in order that we may
perceive the great chai.ee which has ta
ken place in our political parties. In
the period from lt20 to I8o0 and la
ter we find such men as Clay, Cal
houn, Webster, Cass, John Q, Adams,
Silas Wright, Benton, and others, no
ted for their statesmanship, occupying

surts as the Tariff, Bank of the United
states, internal Improvements, Distii
bution or the Proceeds of the Public
Lands and the Slavery Question, were
the themes discussed and dwelt upon
lengti. There were, so to speak, but
iwo great pomicai parties at that time,
viz: The old Federal or Whig party
ana me Democratic or People s par
ty the Constitutional party the par
ty in favor ot the rights of the many,
and who wero opposed to the granting
of privileges to a favored few. The
Whig party numbered in its ranks sev.
eral able and powerful advocates, among
them Henry Clay and Daniel Webster,
the former of whom was once a Dem
ocrat, and by far the most influential
one in their ranks. His zeal alter uni-
xing with the men and measures of the
ederal party, became so intense, tba).
he wasjgenerally regarded as the "Great
Embodiment" of their principles.
Nevertheless, as the ptoph io a Repub
lican government is the sole and only
tribunal by which the executive control
and management of National polity and
the giving vital forca lo any measures
affecting them An be decided, we find
that every measures or dijiructive politi

i
at
repudiated by the people. All the elo
quence exhausted by their leaders failed
to convince the masses as'to the right or
truth or justice of the measures of the
Federal party. Witness the 1 arm, U.
S. Bank, Internal Improvements, etc.,
etc. The great ruling principle ol the
Democratic part' was and is, strict con
struction of the Constitution; all pow
ers and authority not expressly delis
ted in that instrument were to be left
untouched; equal laws and equal taxes;
and, above all, it (the Democratic par
ty) contemned the doctrine of Expedi
ency, believing tnat tue right only is
expedient thus guided, the Democrat
ic party has not invented new-tangled
issues, but occupy the same grou it now
which they have ever occupied that
of the Rights of the People and the
constitution. It has ever been willing
to rise or tall upon its own merits; ana
we find that alter an impartial investi
gation, the people have generally ac
quiesced in its policy, and been gov
erned according to the Democratic con
struction for three-fourths of the time
since the adoption of the Constitution.
They have not, as was and is the! case
with their political opponents, professed
new names and measures, or coalesced
with tactions for the purpose of acqui
ring popularity and political power ;
but, at alt times and in all places and
under every circumstance, have main
tained, with wonderful fidelity and de
votion, the great principles which have
always distinguished them, and which
have" rendered them invincible when
the people understood fairly the issue
between them and their opponents.
Abuses there have been of tneir prin
ciples, by its own professed members,
we admit; but they have always been
rectified at the proper time and in a
proper manner. Acknowledging "prin
ciples not men," they could afford to
bide their time, feeling assured that
whatever wrongs pugajiave been com
mitted, tue party u the people was
strong and hta Enough to purge it
self of all unwliu-some and foreign el
ements detrimental the interests of
the country. Because a breach of good
faith, or piinciple had been committed
by some of its members, the falsifica
tion of the individual was not to be
taken as granted that the great mass of
the people or their principles wert false
also. And the truth ot history will
bear them out in this assertion. They
have suffered temporary defeats; but no
sooner had the smoke and din of the
conflict passed away, and reason, once
more in the ascendant, than the 'sober
second-thought'' of the people has em
phatically re-instated them in their fors
mer position, from which indiscretion
and bigotry had ejected them.
The Whig party has but littlt sym
pathy or affection for the mass f the
people; it 13 only when they hav some
darling scheme to carry out that it in
terests itself in their welfare and that
only so long as volts are needed; that
object secured, a happy and profound
ignorance or abnegation of such an el
ement as the people characterizes them.
The Democratic party is the very re
verse of this. The people first, last and
always of the people, and for the
people, is the Democratic principle.

or attachment they had for them, but
simply and solely for the purpose of se
curing a dominant supremacy ; that
gained, and their fellow-citizens whom
they loved for their "sweet German

be "whistled down the wind, without
any compunctions of conscience. Is it
any wonder, when we reflect upon this
fact, that the intelligent and liberty-lov

such a party and retuse them his sup
porlr or attach himself to his true and

ple the Democratic party f uo where

find that compound of craft and subtle

grandisement, will not hesitate at any
tricks ot deception and fraud to gul
and mislead the people. We have many
such in our land and the people are in
no wise to be held accountable lor their
acts, or as sanctioning them. There
are as pure patriots, as ardent and zeal
ous republicans in all countries as in
our own; and as far as they are able to
do so, leave lor this country, the "land
of the free and the home of the brave,"
where they fondly hoped to realize
what is denied them at home, the free
dom ol tuinKing, speaking and voting
according to the dictates of their own

A Leak Somewhere!
Mr. Bratton: It is important to
the Tax-payers of our county, to know
why it is that the public funds of the
people are being expended, in this coun
ty, in a manner that puts a reckless lace
upon the proceedings. I mean, sir, the
useless expenditure going on about our
Court House yard. I am creditably
lniormed, and dare a denial, that E.
A. Sisson, an old Whig and one who
never voted the Democratic ticket, has,
as Superintendent or general boss ol
the pavement and curbing, let out the
job of putting iu curb at 32 cents per

posed to do the same woik for 30 eta.
per foot. I am further informed that
Mr. Sisson is to get 75c. or $ 1,00 per
day for bossing the works. Why did
not Mr. Sisson let this work out to the
lowest bidder? Was he appointed to
give the job to his pets, at higher prices
than the work can be done for?
And how much is a certain county of
ficer to receive for surveying, leveling,
&c? Is it the old Whig price $2,00
per day, and roast beef ? These are
all legitimate questions, that I, as a
Democratic tax-payer, wish answered.
Perhaps I will call attention to this
matter again, as I have noticed on the
part of another conspicuous gent,' in
this county, a Iavishuess on pets ol
funds coming out of sur County Treas
ury, not exactly up to my notions ol
political economy.
DEMOCRATIC TAX-PAYER.
July 12, 1855.
RIOT AND BLOODSHED IN COLUMBUS
—THE CAPITOL OF OUR STATE INFESTED
WITH ROWDIES.
The Fourth and its Terrible Results.
Our city was, on Wednesday, crowded
wiIP people. Three celebrations and a
circus brought a dense mass upon the
streets. . ,
A portion of the Firemen held a ce
lebration ia Goodale Park, in the north
part of the city another portion in
Ramsey's Grove in the southeastern part
of the city another portion including
the military, the German association of
singers, and the Turner association!
celebrated in Stewart's Grove; south of
the city, while the Circus, &c. , held
forth west of ths city, on the Franklin
ton side of the Scioto river,
Up to nearly aun down every thing
went off peaceably, except a few fights
the Circus, and uo one dreamed of
ny disturbance. We speak for those
out side of the secret organizations
what they knew oi thought of course
we could know nothing about. From
the general peace and good humor '.hit
for the last few weeks reigned in our
city, we never dreamed of an attempt
to repeat the disgraceful riots of a few
weeks ago, and we were never more
stonifhad than on coming into the city
arly yesterday morning to hear of the
monstrous occurrences of the night be
fore. It appears that in the evening at the
eloaa of tha cIbralion in Stawail's
Grove, the several Associations and the
Military were returning to their several
uarters. At various points, it is ctat
d, stones were throwu at the proces
ion. the spile being especially at the
Turners, which were not resented or
noticed, and no riot occurred unlit the
Turners were about passing the United
States Hotel. Here the crowd was con-
iderable and atones were again thrown.
pistols fired and general excitement
took place. One man by the name of
Foster, residing on Alum Creek, was
shot, and almost instantly killed.
The Journal says that one of its Edi
tors saw the occurrence and admits
that the Turners were first attacked.
It says :
"As the tear of this company came
up Town street, a boy, apparently ab
out IS years old, was seen having
quarrel with one of the Turners. He
threw a stone, and hit the one with
whom he appeared to have the dispute."
This is a very modest admission.
Now what had this boy "lb years old,"
to do with assaulting a procession. Who
instigated the boy to the act. How
came he to be so excited? Where were
the fathers of these boys Where the
guardians of the public peace T Hat the
boy been taken up for a riot, has be
been enquired after? Was Jie put
Jaill What become of this young
native? The Journal tells its story :
"One of the com puny near him Hep
ped out ami threw a stone at the boy,
who then fo'lowed up street to the rear
of the Uni'.ed States Hotel, when
picked up another stone and appeared
to be about to throw it, when Mr. Si
monton, the Landlord of the United
States, seized him and took the stone
from his hands.' .
"At inn time Jcnn wtme, who was
standing in a door opposite, knowing
the boy, and fearing that he might get
into difficulty, passed over the s'reet,
took hi in from Sitnonton, and forcibly
carried bira across the street."
To private citizens, one at least
good democrat, did what they could
hold this young hero, and properly
but so one else interiered. Not
the Editor of the Journal who had go
himself posted where Ac could see.-
a city officer present not a Know Noth
ing in action to keep the peace and stop
waat toiiowea- oucu is what we draw
from the Journal itself,
Now muk the fact, that this boy
13 ana tne stones tnrowa by him were
all the Joarnal saw on that side of
question, and that it however admits
was an assault upon the procession
marching peaceably and beautifully from
their joyous celebration of the birth day
of our glorious nation This the Jour
nal admits, also, in its article. It says
"The- firemen of the aoutb ward,
German light Infantry company, and
company oi luroers had been celebrat
ing the Fourth, ia the south part of
city: At about ball pan six, p. m
with two fine bands of music, tbet
marched ia procession through Front
street to Town. Tbey then passed
town to High, and down High toward
the south end of the city. The Turners
were in the rear of tha procession."
We are assured that pruvioot to
stones were frequeutly thrown, and One
youngster got in quite a rage because
they would pay no attention to him.
We are assured also by many eye wit
nesses that ins'ead of only a boy of 15,
throwing a single stone, that there were
numerous atones thrown and pistoles
fired, but as the matter will undergo a
rigid trial, we shall wait for the testi
mony taken under oath, and Lot by one
who bid posted himbslf beforehand to
see the boy's actions.
The affray once put in motion, of
course after that, all wia danger, con
fusiou, uncertainty and rush for safety.
Another paragraph from the Journal
it may be well to put upon record :
"The Fuemen and Military company
halted, after the Turners ran back, but
did not leave their ranks, or iu any way
partake in the affair. When the firing
ceased, they passed on down the street,
but we think the Turners did not again
form in procession. The whole affair
did not ocrupy probably three minutes.
The companies proceded to the south
end of the city and dispersed."
"lhe Turners did not again form in
procession." A single stone from a boy
ot 15 dispersed them did it ? Not only
a very likely story, but wholly different
from the facts given to us, and different
too Irom facts that v ill short!) be dev
eloped, But now comes the leakv'veisel; and
the secret of these horrible disturbances
and murders throughout the land. Hear
the .Journal :
"It may be well imagined that thi
act of shooting down American citizens
in our streets, by an aisociation oi lor
eigners, created great excitement."
Here the horrid spirit of nativeism
sticks out Why not say and say in truth
and do justice, that the act of shooting
down citizens in uur streets creates great
excitement T Is a foreigner's Ufa of so
little value that he cau be shot down by
an American without excitement 1 Is
one not an equal crime with tha other?
then why this distinction but for the
very purpose of exciting boys of 15, to
riots and murder T Is the moral and
atatuta law only for the foreign born ?
Crime is crime of equal dye no matter
bv whom committed. Birth elves no
immunity to crime where government
is just. It is this hellish spirit foment
ed for political purposes that is destroy
ing every just, virtuous and patiolit
sentiment.
The hourly tinea ts making by the
Know Nothings of what they intend to
do, not only shows this spirit to be rife
among them, and that thy are ready
for any desperate game that they think
will thrive.
We will put a question right home to
these Know Nothings, and they can
think of it in their own case. Suppos
ing they were marching peaceably in
procession through our straats, no mat
ter whether they had bee I celebrating
the 4th of July or not, and 15 years old
boys or men or boys hissed ou by men,
would follow in their rear, use insult
ing epithets, get up quarrels, and finally
assault them with stones, what is it
likely they would do' Yes, what would
they do? Very likelv they wolud re
sent it in a way that it would not be
repeated and the men that would not
do it are yet to be born. The foreign
born citizen has flesh and blood like the
rest of us, and feels keenly feels the
gross wrongs and outrages done him
and no more should be expected of him
than of one of us native-born.
Yet they have to bear a great deal
daily insults from the Know Nothing
papers insults and assaults in other
quarters hustled off to prison, while
these native born, and who commenced
the affray, were not even sought after
or interiered witn. inese inings must
cease, or our goodly city and our glor
ious nation have not teen their worst,
but their best days. Statesman,

The Germans put in jail on the night
of the 4th have sent us the following
addresa to tha public. Every person
who reads it must come to but one con
clusionand that is, that these people
are inhumanly persecuted for therbirlA

fore the affair of the evening of the 4th,

affair of that hour. That is a matter of
judicial investigation, whec all the
facts, we hope, will be brought to light.
Thirty thousand of these people voted

they cannot celebrate the bird day of
our glorious liberty, a tbey had done
before for years ia peace and without

It is foil v to inquire now whether
they should or should not have defend

should hare made. That inquiry is al-
wava too late after an affray commen
ces, for then it is too late to reason
coolly, and judge for the necessity of

always run the risks. But the disgrace
of these things every body feels, and
all must more or lest endure, Self de

kind of a defense that should be is mere
a matter of accident from the moment,

To ths Peoplb:
Fellow Cititen$ : By certain indiv
iduals there have lately been spread ru
mors in regard to the German "Turner
verein" (Association of Gymnasts,) cal
culated to throw false light upon them
and raise prejudice agaiust tbem j and
we, therefore, upon this occasion, deem
it to be our duty, at Republicani and
Americans, to try lo disabuse tbt pub
lie mind ia this respect.
TheChief charge brought forth against
ut is this, that we are said to have vot
ed at tbe last election for lhe principles
expressed io the Nebraska bill. Thit is
an unqualihed falsehood. Every mem
ber of our Association, who wa natur
alized and eutitUd to rote, voted the
Republican ticket against the Nebras
ka bill. We did sq, because w tie
as free citizens, against any extension
of slavery.
Another charge against us is, that we
are Catholics, aud adherents to tbe Ro
ms Hierarchy. Such a
charge could
originate only from individuals who, ia
fie i, r.o not know anything, As free
Republicans we are opposed to the Ro
man Hietarchy, as eery body knows,
anl tht Catholics themselves rvill at
test.
We lova this country and her repub
lican principles a nl free institutions,
and are at any time ready and willing
to fight aud shed our blood for the
8imr, tide bv tide with Hit native bora
citizens, like those men who bled for

var.
On the day tf that mot glorious of
human .enlevements recorded on the
pages of history, the anniversary of the
Declaration of American Independence,
uur association showed their love aud
admiration for the illustrious Fathers of
thit great Republic aud tha happy result
oj their endeavors, by a procession and
several speeches, both liberal and re
publican. On our return from Stewart's
Urove, nhilo marching through the
streets of our city, we were assailed ia'
front of the United Slates Hotel : rockt
were thrown and pistols fired at us;
and iu the evening the policemen took
upon ihemselvtt the responsibility to
arrest and imprison ut. the undersigned,
without showing warrants or any pro
per authority. They broke into houses,
and took some of us out of our beds ;
and others, walking peaceably along,
were seized in the street.
These being the facts in the case, we
would ask the people of this county and
of the State whether juitict shall be
done unto ua ; whether we, as ci'izens,
shall not have the right and privilege to
celebrate in peace and order that glori
ous day, on which the heart of every
true Republican rejoices.
