The Fusionists, with a large pre

whilst we are penning this article.
The meeting is small considering
immense exertions made to drum it up.
"We called in about the close of a speech
made by a man by the name oi Hor

ot the present Constitution of Ohio
"were enormous mistakes!" that "the
principles of Taxation were
wrong" that we 'wanted more banks.'

or perhaps he wishes more of the same
kind ol Indiana paper that we had

months a few more Circleville banks,
d-c. Perhaps his hearers appreciated
his remarks, but we concluded he was
one of the most consumate demagogues
that we ever naa tue pleasure oi uear
ing.
Among his closing remarks be said,
"as True Republicans, let us follow
the wise policy of little Massachusetts,

This is a question which every
Di-ir.ocrat, every lovr of freedom and
of this Union, should at this time must
candidly and earnestly ask with refer
ence to the present political canvas.
Are the
Democratic watch-hres all
Jl JO
Are the people of our coun
fully and generally advised of the
importance of the issues before them?
Is it generally understood that if sal
mon P. Chase and the fusion party
succeed in this election that negroes
will be allowed the privilege of voting,
while laws will be enacted practically
denying white nun who happen not to
have been born in the United States,
whether naturalized or not, from the
same privilege? The Know Nothing
Abolitionist legislatures ot Massa
chusetts, New Hampshire, and Maine
have done tliese things; what better
can we expect ot a Know Nothing
Abolitionist Administration in Ohio?
Besides, we may plainly infer that it
was a part of the bargain between
Chase, Giddings & Co., on the part
ot tne Auoiiuonihis, ana l om spoon
er and others on the part of the Know
Nothings, when they lormed the jU'
sion on the I3th ot July last, aod dub
bed Uthe "Republican party," that if
success crowned this unholy alliance
the privilege of voting should be ex
tended to negroes. The Abolitionists
always advocated this; and they now
boast mat ll-CUase and his gang are
elected they will cousumate their
schemes. It is said that the fualtrs &
irire- workers of the old whig party in
& about McArthur,alter having almost
unanimously joined the Know Nothing
order last fall, are now ready to vote
the Chase ticket, and that every effort
will be made by them to boo!, spur and
drive every Old Line Whig and K.
Nothing into the support ot the fusion
ticket. It r -m; i is to be seen whether
the honest voters of Vinton county
will suffer themselves to be driven and
dictated by a halt dozen Kno'v Noth
ing Whig Fusionists about McArthur
into the support ol men and principles
that they utterly abhor and detest.
We think we fusees in Vinton county
will find 'Jordan a hard road to travel,'
But said the immortal Jefferson, "Eter
nal vigilance is the price of liberty!"
Then let every Democrat, let every
Whig, and every friend of his coun
try's laws and Constitution, be active
and vigilant from this until the 2nd
Tuesday of October. Let no man lay
on his oars thinking his neighbor will
do the work. Let every man do his
duty.! Talk with your neighbors rea
son with them show them the evils
and disgrace which will, result from
giving tne lusiomsts control ot our
State and count see that all are post
ed, and that all go to the polls, and
there is not the least doubt but from

nd eleven o'clock the people of our
town were aroused by a report similar
to that of a camion, which upon exam
inations into its cause resulted from the
blowing up, with gunpowder, the ci ilio
lie Church in this place!
One er more kega were placed under
the north end of the building, probably
ten feet (rum the north side, a train
powder extended probably twenty feet
into the street, to a bunch of shavings.
The sharings were fired which com
municated with the powder leading

Council, wiis held before Mayor New

purpose of getting a clue to the perpe
trators of the act, but no fdcts were elic
ited other than the community were pre
viously aware of. We have not room
publish the testimony ot the wltnerses,
as reduced to writing by the Mayor.and
bumied to us lor that purpose. We
will give all the main points:
Michuel Mountain was firm sworn,
who testified that he lives on the west
side of the canal, nearly opposite where
the church S'ooJ, was in his house
the time of the explosion, ran to the door
and looked out. the smoke wes so dense
around the church he could nut see any
thing else, lie heard two parties
persons running, one parly down the
canal, and the other party up the ca
nal,
Wra Serviss testified that he was
his door shortly tiler the explosion,
party of four boys or young men were
running dovn Ohio street, Mr, S.
aides on Ohio street, about seventy-five
yards to the north west of where
church stood.
Thomas W. Stephenson was next
sworu, who testified that he wwoin"
home about ten minutes past ten o'clock
on Saturday night, when at the conne-
of Ohio and South ftreet he noticed
flash of light, followed by an explosion
so loud as to completly stun him for
moment. The Catholic church was sit
uated on South street, about one square
west of where he stood. He ran across
Ohio street and saw four persons run
ning Irom South street into an alley be
tween the church aud where lie then
stood. In a few minute", a uartv of four
persons came down, and passed along
by where he stood, pauiingas though
they were nearly out of breath. The)
crosfed Ohio street and proceeded
warJs the South part of town. They
not stop to look at the church.
Beni. McLean, of the firm of McLean

Chillicothe Advertiser thus demon
strates the absurdity of Chase's denial
of abolitionism:
No Abolitionist! Chase and some
of his conlederatea on the State Ticket,
are stumping the Slate and indignantly
denying ih.it cither one of them is an
Aoliiionist. This is very much like a

er of his opponent.? I'.y his indignant
denial that he is an Abolitionist he gives
the people plainly to understand thut
he duas not propose to releat-c one negro
now in slavery, Neither Governor Me
dill nor a uiigle candidate on the De
inocratic Stale Ticket propose Xotndavt
one negro now free, nor do they advo
cate the propriety of euch a thing; aud
yet Chase s fi tends have the impudence
to assert that they are 'Slave Democrats.'
To our comprehension there seems to
be no ditlereaie in the views, on the
subject of slavery, between the muu
who does not, by act or by speech, ad
vocate the enslavement cf a free negro,
ivmiD m& rii3iun..i.in wi ,',

deny that he ia in favor of

b!c tons jqtie nee, thai if Mr. Chase is a
more thorough anti slavery man than
Governor Medill, he must be iu favor of
such a policy as will free the negroes
now held ia bondage. Otherwise '.here
is practically no difference. II Chase and
company don't want to iuterfeie iu the
subsisting relation between master and
slave, why do they prowl over the
Stale and do their utmost to excite
embittered feelings aguinst slave, hol
ders? Shall we be told there is uo pur
pose in this, and Ihut Ihe purpose is
not the consumatioii of the darling
scheme of treasonable Abolitionism'
Such a conflict in Koiession aud in ae
on won't answer, Mr. Chase. Ihe man
who is disposed to treat his immediate
neighbor honorably, aud not to inter
fere with his domestic relations, will
not put himsell to the Double to do all
thcl lies in his power to einoiuer an
other naighbors against him; nor will
a man who is nolaa Abolitionist join
in a mad crusade against the South, To
suppose that he will, is a great
absurdity.
