Gex. Morgan, says the Newark
Advocate, recently introduced a
bill iu Congress, the object of which
was to secure justice to the wool
growers of the United State. The
hill proposes to increase the duty
on wool from three, ns it now is, to
six cents per pound, and impose an
additional duty of twenty cents on
a dollar's worth of Australian and
South American wool, and what is
still more important, it imposes a
duty of one dollar on every dollar's
worth of wool imported on the skin.
At present there is no duty on wool
imported in this manner. While
other classes of industry are being
protected, the. farmer is certainly
entitled to have at least one article
of his production protected.
The Increase in the State Taxation.
ation!
, The levy authorized for 1804, by
the General Assembly at its pres
ent session, will gather into the
State Treasury, through the Tax
gntnerer u drag net, from eight
HUNDRED THOUSAND TO ONE MILLION
dollars more than at any time
heretofore. Steadily the Increase
in State taxation has gone on since
the Democratic party were voted
out of power, until it hns become
dimply enormous.
In what U t he State better oft
since Democratic simplicity and
economy have been superceded by
Radical rule, with its glare and
profligacy? Arc peace and order
better conserved? Is Justice dis
penned with .more' impartiality?
)w Ohio stuml forth a more. dig.
ullted and imposing State? ; We do
not think any one will pretend Hint
y change for the better has taken
plncc In these particulars? And
yet the Tux payers should have
.some return for the increased tax
utiou Mint lias boon Imposed upon
them. !
The Scarcity of Money.
Thero is a widespread complaint
of the scarcity of money, ' Business
men feci it to be a serious draw
back, ns it retards enterprise and is
crippling our mercantile, manufac
turing and mechanimal interests.
It is an inconvenience which is felt
by all classes, from the merchant
down to the smallest, shop-keeperi
Why is it? The financial ways of
the Federal ' Administration arc
mysterious enough, besides detri
mental to the business interests of
the country. Before election, the
Secretary of the Navy, .Air. Bout
well was all cxpapsion and prompt
in relieving business men. He
took especial pains to throw regular
installments of gold in circulation
to mako the "good and prosperous
times," which were heralded in
every Radical organ and by every
Radical stump orator during' the
canvass. Since the election the
policy of the Secretary has been
contraction.
If we read the last financial state
ment right, Mr. Bout well holds in
his possession currency, $5,380,-
862 55; coin, $70,715,415 13, and
special deposits of legal tenders for
the redemption of certificates of
deposit, $28,045,000 making an
aggregate of available funds
amountingto $104, 141,277 68. Now,
why is this immense sum kept un
der lock and key while the whole
country is crying for relief? This
is a most reckless disregard of the
public necessities, and a deplorable
blunder, quite consistent with oth
ers, equally glaring, made by this
administration.
BOUNTY LANDS FOR SOLDIERS.
A Bounty Land Bill, provi
ding for 160 acres of public
lands for each officer, soldier;
sailor and marine, who served
ninety days or more, and was
honorably dischargod, and giv
ing them full title for the lands
without requiring them to per
sonally settle on the same,
passed the United States House
of Representatives on the 12th
of December, 1872. The Senate
has not taken a vote upon it
yet. If the bill authorized t he
land grabbers to take possession
of the public lands, it would be
passed by that body in a hurry.
Meetings are being held bv
the soldiers in many counties
of the State, for the purpose of
passing resolutions instructing
the Senators, iu Cougress to fa
vor the passage of the bill. Can
not the soldiers of Vinton county
hold a meeting for the same
purpose ?
How is this for High?
From the Wayne County Democrat.
The Columbus correspondent of
the Canton Repository and Repub
lican, says that during the first ad
ministration of Washington, it was
thought $600,000 would be neces
sary to carry on the Government,
and that Alexander Hamilton Mas
the only man who seemed capable of
devising ways and means to secure
that amount of money. " The popu
lation of the United States was
then between three and four mil
lions. Stark County has a popula
tion of something over 58,000, and
yet last year it paid in State, Coun
ty and local taxes, nnd in its pro
portionate share of Federal taxes,
EIGnT HUNDRED THOUSAND DOLLARS !
TWO HUNDRED THOUSAND DOLLARS
MORE THAN WASHINGTON'S ADMIN
ISTRATION required its first year.
The Republican party is triumph
ant in Stark. In the good days of
Democratic rule, taxation did not
thus cat into the resources of the
people in that county. If the voters
of that County are wise, they will
send to the Constitutional Conven
tion Delegates who have a repug
nance for high taxation.

Thurman Master of the Situation
in the Senate.
A Washington Special of the
Cincinnati Enquirer, dated the
16th, inst., contained the following
A long debate on Louisiana mat
ters sprung up in the Senate to-
dav, upon Morton's resolution to di
rect the Committee on Privileges
and Elections, to inquire, whether
there is auy. legal State Govern
merit in Louisiana, and, if so, by
whom it is constituted. Judge
Thurnian remarked that the Presi
dent had recognized one of the two
Governments in Louisiana, but that
this decision was not binding on
Congress. Edmunds, of Vermont
who is anxious to be Chief
Justice, and therefore keenly sen
sitive to the President s reputation
at once repelled this seeming
imputation, and brought on a gen
era! debate, involving the construe
tion of the acts of 1795 and 1807,
and the right of the United States
Marshal to use the power of the
army at his own pleasure. Judge
Thurnian had to meet not only lid
munds, but Carpenter, Morton, and
Coukling who, like Edmunds, hns
fixed a greedy eye on Judge
Chase's position. But the Ohio
Senator proved himself fully a
MATCH FOB THE POUR COMBINED. Ed-
inunds was insolent, and, as usual,
tried to give the discussion a party
turn, in which he was seconded by
Conkling, who, after making an at
tact on Judge Thurnian, subsided
into the letter writtiug by which he
usually exhibits his contempt for
his opponents. Morton was much
more courteous, and did not en
deavor to prolong this discussion.
Ldmunds, among ether things had
the hardihood to deny that the
army had interfered in' Louisiana.
Carpenter, who followed, argued
that Durell s proceedings were justi
fied by the Enforcement Act; but
Judge Thurnian silenced him by
showing that this act expressly ex
cluded the Legislature of a State
from the jurisdiction it conferred
on the Federal Judge. Mr. Steven
son judiciously deprecated discus
sion ; but it was obviously the nim
of Conkling, Edmunds and Carpen
ter to prolong it, and run the ques
tion into a party groove.
The Democrats of Ohio have
cause to feel proud, that they are
represented in the Senate of the
United States by a senator who is a
match for four of the picked Radi-
dal Senators.
Destructive Fire at Hillsboro, Ill.
A destructive lire broke out
at Hillsboro, Illinois, on the
15th, inst., which destroyed
$10,000 worth of property. The
following account of the lire we
clip from the St. Loui Republi
can: At 2 o'clock this morning
fire was discovered in the north
end of J. C. Gunning's wagon
manufactory. The whole inter?
ior of (he north end, when dis
covered, was in flames. The
wind being in the south, the
ire made slow but shure pro
gress, burning the entire shops,
machinery and ZO new wagons;
also the iVives Letter's
a
steam
whiting olfice and a two-story
brick owned by Burrel Phillips.
Gunning's insurance is 818,000.
His loss is about 15,000 over
his insurance. The News Let
ter has insurance of 1,000.
Loss 80OO or SjGOO over insur
ance, ihe most or the type
and stock of the Mivs Letter
were saved. Ikrrel Phillips'
loss about 85,000; no insurance.
Tlio insurance companies sus
taining losses are the. .Etna of
Hartford, 85,000; Imperial of
London, 85,000; Franklin of
Philadelphia, 83,000; Ameri
can Central of St. Louis, 83,500;
Phoenix of St. Louis, 82,500.
The cause of the fire is un
known, but the supposition is
hat it caught from the stove in
the blacksmith soop. It is be
ievetl that Phillips' building
could have been saved if our
city had had a hook and ladder
company.
J. j. Gunning is a cousin of
O. T. Gunning, Esq., and broth
er-in-law of J. X. McLaughlin,
Post Master, of Mc Arthur.
The "Jackson (O.) Herald gives
the following illustration of rail
road effects on property :
" In 1852 the tax duplicate of
Jackson county showed the value
of nil property to bo $1,512,000.
The railrond was put under con
struction in 1852, and in 1850 the
tax duplicate ofythe county showed
tho value of the property to be $3,
010,515, or nn increase iii fouryears
of If 2,1 28,515, or over 140 percent,
in the four years. The average
natural increase of property in good
agricultural regions is 4 pe cent, a
year, while from 1852 to 1850. in
Jackson county, tho increase of
property was 35 percent, yearly."
Ground has been broken for
the underground railroad of
JSew York city, and it is threat
ened that tho work will bo fin

Thero is a necessity for this
work. There are too many peo

killed and don't die fast enough
and some of them must trav
el underneath. ; We are destin

The Perry County Coal Fields.
[From the Ohio State Journal.]
As soon ns Cincinnati wakes up
to the advantage that awaits her in
availing herself of lines already
completed to the rich mines of
Hocking, Perry' and Muskingum
Counties, the sooner Mill her man
ufacturers get an abundant supply
at a uniform price the year round,
She must turn her back upon the
delusive jack-o'lauterns danced by
designing capitalists, along the in
accessible banks of the Big Sandv
or away up in the unexplored re
gions of West Virginia cease voting
money for surveys nnd the building
of new lines and strive to make
profitable use of the means already
open to her. The Cincinnati
Muskingum, and the Cinciunali &
Marietta Railroad connecting the
Queen City with tho best coal iu
the Union can be mnde equal to an
ununited supply, which can be
easily demonstrated if their Board
of Trade will but appoint a commit
tee to visit Lnucnster, New.;!
ington, Straitsville and other points
and learn how cheaply coal can lie
mined and loaded for tianspoita
tion. In a communication to the
Cincinnati Board of Trade, A. B.
haters, its Secretary, in October
last, he contends that ''by the con
struct ion of a branch road, ten or
twelve miles in. length from Lan
caster, on the Hocking Valley
Railroad that it and other Hocking
Valley coal can be mined and de
livered in that city nt a cost of ten
cents per bushel," which really has
been the burden of her prayers for
fifteen or twenty years but just like
me ntigety oiu monopolis wncn lier
petition is about to be answered,
she becomes deaf nnd blind and
gibbers about "West Virginia,"
"Big Sandy," "block coal," "South
ern Railroad," nnd other hallucina
too numerous to recapitulate in the
crowded state of our columns.
The Zanesville Courier man has
been figuring, and here is what he
comes to:
The Secretary of State, in his
highly interesting report, says:
"By the accepted methods of calcu
lation there art twenty-three mil
lion tons of available coal in Ohio."
Twenty-three thousand million
tons! Who can comprehend the
stupendous force locked up iu such
mountain of coal? Four tons of
coal in a steam engine will evolve
ns much mechanical power as an
ordinary man can exert in working
eight hours a day for twenty jeais;
or one ton of coal has in it the pow
er of fifteen hundred men for one
day. Get out your slates. Twenty
three thousand million multiplied
by fifteen hundred, and how nint h
have you? Estimating the able
bodied men of the Mholc globe at
two hundred nnd thirty millions,
the force stored up in Ohio coil is
equal in producing artificial Ijibor
power to the manual labor of the
whole world for three hundred
years. 1
