vice of savages, and may be corrected
the progress of civilization; but corrup
tion is the vice of a community where
civlizatiou has already culminated,
the State is sinking to decay. While
we condemn mob violence as a vice
the South let us not encourage a worse
vice in the North. The blustering vio

For Tears past, the peace, harmony

nd the fire eaters of the South. But

wherever it was not practicable, tne
condition of the slave weoM hare be.eB
greatly improved. . But between the
two, the hopes of the poor negio have
been crushed, as belweea the tipper
and the nether millstone.
It was profoundly remarked by a phi
losopher, that the extremes sre nearer
together than ibe means, So it is as
to these desperate factions. The distinc
tion is scarcely perceivable to a man
of heal '.by biains consisting only in
this, that they operslat opposite ends

Te inflame the imaginations of fanat
ics, is a mesns of success common to
both. To server the Union, if they can
cot get all they want, is a bugbesr com
mon to both. To conjure up a fictitious
crisis, tujustify the election of sn un
worthy man, is. a trick common to both
To make the opposite extieme of our
beloved country, whether North or
South, the Hell of sickly imaginations,
is a wicked humbug common to both
But the affinity between these giaceless
factious appea'S more clearly when we
reflect that the are mutual helps to
each other, and cannot live without
each other's aid that they inflate
each other wind bladders' and keep
each oiber afloat, when without such
help both would sink to the bottom like
millstones Thus a mountebank, for

mounts the tide of a Southern crisis in

its, ready to help each other to a re
election in all future times, by mutually
devouring each other in mimic war.
One of them, without the slightes
provocation, flings the fire bran as of
slavery at Ibe other; and at it they go,
like two fish women of Billingsgate.
After they bve belabored each other to
their owu mutual selislaciiun, each
prints a speech for Buncomb.and accord

C. D. Gray, D. D. T. HARD. RANK TREASON UNPARALLED!
The deepest and most damning act
of political perfidy was consumated at
the Know Nothing Abolitionist Con
vention at Haniden, on Monday last,
that it has ever fallen to our duty to
record, at least so far 'as the nominee
(Mr. D. D. T. Hahd) or that Coo
vention is concerned. In relation to
Mr. Hard we make ihe following dis
tinct and specified charges, knowing
what we do write, and challenge Mr.
Hard to make a public denial of them
in any journal published in this Leg.
tslaiive District,1 and we wilt prove
them to ha hearts content. 1 be col
umns of the Democrat will always be
open to Mr. Hard to make any such
denial. ' , '
1st We charge that Mr. Hasp,
since the 13tli of July (Chase) Con-
vention, has repeatedly said that he was
a Democrat, of the Old School, and in
the most solemn manner announced his
determination to vote for and support
the whole Democratio State 1 tcket.
2nd We charge that since the said )
13th of July Convention he has de-
nouueed the Republican (Chase) tick
et and platiorm as rotten and corrupt
and unworthy of the support ol the
people of the State of Ohio.
3id We charge that Mr. Hard
aher admitting to certain persons that
he last fall joined the Know Nothing
Order, as he said, for the. purpose of
preventing it from injuring the Demo
cratic party anc nnauy nrean it up
since the 13th July disclaimed any
connection with the Order since last
fall, and denounced Know Nothingiam
in the severest terms, and called upon
God to witness that from that time
henceforth he was firmly and unflinch
ingly attached to the Democratic party
and its principles.
4lh We charge that during the
same period this L. D. T. Hard de
nied to others that he had ever had any
connectiou wiih the Know Nothing
Order or any secret political society
whatever.
6th We charge that during the
same period, and previous to the meet
ing ot the Democratic convention on
the 25th of August last a L Haniden,
Air. hard, as a proiesseojena 01 l.
F Bingham, advised andcounselled
his nomination by that Convention,
and that alter Mr. Bingham's nomina
tion he expressed himself well satisfied,
and that he could and would most
heartily support Mr. Bingham for
Representative.
6ih We charge that on Saturday,
September 1st. 1855, alter the whole
ticket State and 'county had been
. r
nominated, and not ten aays previous
to the date of Mr. Hard's nomination
by the Fusion Convention, he expres
sed himsell as being well satisfied with
the whole Democratic ticket that he
should vote for the entire ticket and
more than that (and with great empha-
sis) he said he was going to wotk lor
the success ol the entire .Democratic
ticket.
7th We charge that D. D. T.
Hard has told himself to the self.
styled Republican party, and that the
consideration is, that he should be their
candidate for Representative, as is ev-fl
idencedby the foregoing facts; aDa
.h if., : Ti.- s-..
the tact that in accepting the nomina
uon on aionaay last, ne saia, mat ne
heartily approved of the Chase ticket
and the platform ou whirSit stands.
f inally, as a result of the tore-
8th-
going, we charge My. Hard with be
ing a corrupt aemw;ogue ana eiuue
seeker in the market without any sin
cere political principles subject to bo
bought by, and sold, to that party
which is the highest bidder.
For want ot time and space we re
frain from making further charges at
this time, but promise to recur to the
subject again several times before the
election; meanwhile, we invite the se
rious attention of the people of Vinton
and Jackson counties to the facts above
stated.
