Secret republican Military organization,
to control the Sovereign People.
The Proof of Gov. Tod, Gov. Morton
and Maj. Gen. Wallace being in
ban'dolusions, and if you are a true man to
On onr first page we givo the evi
dence of military organizations, for the
purposo of controlling this Govern-
ment, fiat aro tho most astounding
ever published to tho American peo
ple. Nothing ever before attempted
iu this Gorerument equals it. That
it is truo we can hardly doubt, as it
comes authenticated by tho names of
tho persons who sign aud certify to it,
in the Stata of Illinois, and the en
dowment of the saino ongauiza-
tion, by Col. S. Medary, as to ita ex
istence in tho City of Columbus. It
seems that by tho zeal of the organiza
tion the cat has leaped out of tho bag.
For tho past year thiH Bfitno party of
Know nothing notorioty in times past,
has been charging, that the Democ-
raey were organizod in a society call
ed tho Knights of tho Golden Circlo,
they led to examinations boforo vari
ous Grandjurios In Ohio and other
States. The consequence ofinvesti.
gation cleared tho Democracy of these
lyiug charges, and many men and
families have been ruiucd by tho ex
periment. Ono man it will bo recol
lected who bad mado the charge went
crazy, and others had to floe tho coun
try to get clor of writs, suod out by
Democrats, for falso charges, Perjury
and damages. Wo thought for tho
past year that tho leaders of tho lie
publicans wero organized in sarao
association for the purposo of controll
ing tho Govornmout' from tho very
fact that they wero making these
charges upon Democrats, on the prin
ciple that the greatest rascal, is tho
first to turn State's evidence.
But reader you now havo tho evi
donee before yop, draw your own con
your God, your country, and your
Posterity, wo have no loara of whore
yon will act. The proof of Governoi
Tod and Morton, of Indiana boin ad
vised fullv and concurring iu this mon
strous .and startling conspiracy, is
found in the fact, that thuy eat silent
ly by, at tho Republican nioeting at
Pikes Opera House in Cincinnati, last
month, and heard their friend aud
tool Mai. Gen. Wnlace ey. "I have
given you tho alarm, What do I ad
vise I I adviso you to organise, not
politically, but in tho stylo of soldiers."
There you have it readers, this Mnj.
Gen. .Wallace, in the hearing of your
own Governor, and Governor Morton
declares to this Rpublican meeting
at Pikes Opera House iu tho Queen
City, that we as a Democrat, with
hundreds of others of tho same party
volunteered last summer to defend
from sacking, advises the Republi
can party, to arm as soldiers, to shoot
down, and cut tho throats cf Demo
crats. We tako his speclu

and startling advice given thus pub

plaio. Thero is a coujpiracy on foot
in tho NorHio overawe, intimiNie
or murder the members of the Demo
cratic party. Wo ask our Itepubh
can friers, to look at fho fact of a se
cret military organization being es"
tablisbed, as we show in this paper in
Illinois and Ohio, with the declara
tion and advice of maj. Gen. Wallace,
taken in connection with the positions
of Stevens, and other members of Con
grejs of tho Abolition school, that we
must now have a dictator, and tho fact
that free speech ia attempted to be
gagged, and your free Presses mobed
Is there not cause for alarm, and reason
for saying and believing that here iu
the North, wo are on tho verge of civ
il war I Is it not a fact that uuder tho
advice of Governor Morton and his
tools, that the Republicans of Indiana
are arming with a view to coming
Civil strife? Who is doing these
things ? certainly not Democrats.
It Btarted out as we bolievo secretly
But; enough has been discovered with
the public declarations made, to leave
no doubt of the fact. As to Gen.
Wallace himsolf he is of no couse
queDCo, the administration has been
compcllad to movo him from ever po
sition he has occupied bofore he was
scarcely at his post. Me aud his staff
ouly disposes of about $24,000 of the
people's Greenbacks annually, and for
which he has been of do service to the
countrv that we are aware of. But
when this Maj. Gen. is hissed on by
the executive of our State and of a sis
ter State, ho then assumes a conse
quence ho could not obtain himself.
In conclusion we urge Democrats
and conservative Republicans who
act with us, to keep cool, lot ua not
like Abolition Republicans, get exci
ted, but adhere strictly to our consti
tutions,, thereby preserving law and
order. It has been tho great object
of tho fathers of tho Democracy to
maintain protect and defend tho con
stitution, let ui fol.ow their advice, and
learn foora their exporien.co trusting
in God that in his due timo he wiil
relieve us from the curse he ban vis
ited upon us. We hope to see all
things righted at tho ballot box, and
this war which has been pervertod
from ita original object as declured by
the men in power, brought to u speody
end by some means. . What these
moans will bo no man can yot say .
Above all things fellow citizeus let us
remomber the advico of tho immortal
Whashington. "That tho constitu
tion is sacredly ohligatary apon all,"
and to be ware of "secret associations
having for their object the coutrol of
Shall the People Arm.
Tho queotion is asked us by the cit
izens every day. What e'ull wo do ?
Must wo fight at homo ? Theso ques
tions are not asked by Democrats
alono, but many who havo heretofore
acted with the Republicans, and who
voted for Mr. Lincoln. Our reply to
all such, is, if you want to niaintain
your Government, Whshington says
in poaco preparo for war. Ha is good
anthori$. And if you turn to tho
f'onstitution of the U. S. Art. 2. of

I take it from this that iiis Constitu

Crisis Office Mobbed.
The city of Columbia has been tho
theater of a meet disgraceful mob on
the the night of the 5th inst. Col.
Medary was absent at Cincinnati at
tho time, and know nothing of it nntil
tho next morning, when he read it in
tho morning papors. Tho editorial
room was all the ono the mob got
into. Mrs. Wilson, daughter of
Col. Medary, went to tho office and
got possession of the subscription
books, so tho Crisis will come on to
subscribers as usual. A well known
Abolitionists attempted to take the
book from Mrs. Wilsok, when she'
took' a revolver from her pocket, lev
eled it at the scoundrels bead, and
denounced him as a coward, fit only
to fight women, She then went off"
through tho crowd with tho books' and
revolve: in hand, not one attempting
to interfere with her. The fellow ia
now in prison tor assaulting her. Three
cheers for Mrs, Wilson.
We told our friends here, that Col.
Medary had more friends in Frauklia
county, than any five in it, in both
putties. And if a mob attacked him
or his property, it must bo either the
resulf of a Bccret movo, or a general
battle would be the result. This ap
pears to havo been some 75 or 80 men
drtssed in part as soldiers, who came
up an alley from tho river to mako tho
attack. We have not room for fur
ther details this week. Ono thing is
certain, Ohio will send 100,000 men
to Columbus, inside of three days
if necessary, to protect free speech
and a free pmss, and Vinton couuty
will furnish 1,000 of them, whenever
tho Democracy of Franklin county
require it. And we verily believe
many Republicans here would join
us. Wo would even go to protect the
bloated carcass of the ou naJ editor
at Columbus, who attempts to excuse
tho mob for this outrage, and whoso
every publication has been to induce
