Morton and Noyes at Athens.
It was for the want of time and
space that we did not speak of the
tin eo. or four thousand men, women,
and children who went to Athens,
on Saturday, August 23rd inst., to
hear l'.. S, Senator Moutox, of In
diana, ;t Salary Oralilwr, aii'l K. F.

two or three hours. Mokton read
his piece while sitting on a stool, to
the crowd. Noyes shot his oil'
standing. During the reading of
hit piece, Mokton was called upon
for an explanation of his relations
to the salary grali. His reply was
the inost pitiful example of cheap
pettifogging we have ever noted. .
He informed the meeting that he
had not taken his share of the steal
and never expected to; that after
the passage of the bill he consulted
with his colleague.,; Mr. Tuatt, and
they agreed that the back -pay prin
ciple was not sound', niuVtliat there
fore they would not take -the pay.
It will be noted that Mr. Mokton
does not deny that he advocated
and voted for the measure,-because
he does not dare do so, the fact be
ing on record that he was one of
the strongest "supporters of the
steal; but afterwards that is,
when the popular. denunciation of
the rascally piece of business grew
so loud and general that Mr. Mor-
ton got scared he ascertained, by
consulting Mr. Pratt, that the
principle was not sound. Will any
intelligent, candid man be deceived
by such talk as this? Rut this is
not all. Mr. Mom-ox knows as well
as anybody, tliat the fact of fiis not
having taken his 'jiay does not re
lieve him in the slightest dcree of
the odium. The money has been
placed tu his crodit, and it is as
much his property at this moment
as though he had it in his pocket,
or on deposit in a bank from which
he could check it out at will. There
can be no question about this.
Had lie desired to be honest in this
matter, he would have at once cov
ered back the amount into the
Treasury, but he had nut done this,
and because ho has not done so, it
a fair inference that he does ex
pect to draw it at owc time, des
pite his declaration to the contrary.
The apology of Mr. Morton for
those of his conferees who had the
bad courage to defy public senti
ment and take the money will not
amount to anything with the jieo-
pic wno understand that conscience
has nothing whatever to do with
the matter in the
these fellows. It may be remark
ed, however, that if possible the
most brazen and defiant of those
who took the steal are less ropre-
liensilile and contemptible than
Morton and some others like him,
who add cowardice, snbteifuge and
falsehood to their criminal rascali
ty in advocating and voting for the
robbery. Mr. Moirrox has with
drawn his engagements in Ohio.
It is well for his party that he did,
for the people of this State can
have no toleration of a man so man
ifestly lost to every sense of honor
and moral duty. Nevertheless, he
has left his stain, and all the soph
istry to his party friends will not
avail to wipe it out. Morton's ap
pearance in Ohio will lose thous
ands of votes to the Grant party,
ami we are sorry that his remaining
appointments in this State have

That is very pretty talk, Mr
Standard, but it is not satisfactory
It is true that Hon. II. S. Bundy is
drawing bis salary ns member of
Congress, under the Salary Grab
Law of last March, at the rate of
$G25 per month $7,500 per year,
He has to take $625 per month, or
take nothing. He cannot draw his
salary under the old law. The sal
any law is an entirely new one, and
our legal friend of the Standard
ought to read it carefully, and he
will soon find that Mr. Bundy, a
though ho took no part in Its pass
age, can stay at homo and run his
two furnaces, assist in managing
tho Athens Lunatic Asylum, and
attend to other business, and draw

It Hurts—Let the Galled Jade
Noyes made a violent assault up
on the Cincinnati Enquirer in his
speech Tuesday evening, rending
from it a series of articles showing
that Radical politicians are striving
to hold otlice, notwithstandingtheir
corruptions and extravagance, on
account of the bloody battles and
the wooden legs nf the soldiers'.
The Governor charged that the
paper mentioned was sneering at
the woundod soldiers. Every
body knew better, and the reading
thereof was unprofitable.
But Noyes has si personal griev
ance, and this was the motive for
the assault. The Cincinnati JJn
ijuirei has been showing up ig
jucrcancd cabin- while he was "pro
am Judge of Hamilton tou.ity. It
linn published evidence establish-
the fact that whik' holding that
ftlee he had charged $1:1,52
more fee than he was entitled to.
does not like to have such
transactions made known just now,
and grows indignant at the journal
that dares expose them.
The Radicals held what they
chooe to call a Judicial Conven
tion, at Portsmouth, last week. In
stead of giving Judge W. K. Hast
ings of Jackson, the nomination,
they "trumped up'' fUite a large
and nominated Thomas Cher-
inotox, of Irontou. This sub d v's
of the district is entitled to two
Judges. One should reside in one
the river counties, and the other
the back woods counties, The
