The house of representatives at Washing
ton having adopted a resolution appropria
ting 20,000 so secure a fair representation
of the products of this country , at the
"World's fairs in Sidney and Melbourne,
Australia, there is some prospect that Amer
ican manufacturers will have an opportu
nity to show their goods on the other side
of the world. If the resolution had au
thorized the employment of one. or two
naval vessels to transport exhibits free of
cost to the exhibitor it would have been all
the better. '
The Rev. Conway, wiio officially cut
such a disgraceful figure in Louisiana after
the war, turned up in St. Louis as General
Conway, a month since, and was going to
shower wonderful blessings on the colored
immigrants. It took him but a short while
to come to grief. As soon as his character
was made known not even the negroes
would trust him. The vile hypocrite is
properly described in the following article
from the Boston Herald : ''The exodus has
brought plenty of trash to the surface in the
shape of pretended representatives of the
colored race, but none of tlicm seem to be
a greater humbug, nccording to the St.
Louis and New Oik-niis paper, than Gen,
Conway, who lias been collecting funds at
the East and recently visited St. Louis.
Conway used to be a colored (?) person
and attracted wide attention us head of the
Prcedmen's Beareau in Louisiuiin, and af
terward as Superintendent ot 'Public Educa
tion in that State. He fleeced the colored
brcthcrn aud descended to the lowest depths
of degradation, if the New Orleans Times
tells the truth, showing himself to be tis in
satiable a leech as ever rose from muddy
waters and fixed himself upon a community.
The cx-parson finally left the State out of
respect for his personal safety, and now turns
tip as General Conway to ninke something
out of the exodus of his old dupes. When
he reached St. Louis he telegraphed over
the country that the negroes were camped
along the Mississippi's banks, where they
were bull-dozed by their masters and refus
ed passage on the steamers. Conway pro
posed to send a special steamer after these
refugees, but his reports were found to bo
exaggerated, and the modern Moses .quietly
returned to Washingion."
THE NEW REVENUE LAW.
The Legislature which adjourned on
May 3Jsf, last, passed some very radical
legislation on revenue matters.
House bill 842, which takes effect July
1st next, provides that all personal prop
erty shall be listed and returned under
oath, and provides that us a penalty for te
ftutag to return, the Assessor shall list the
property of the person bo refusing accord
ing to his best judgment and information
aid add to the valuation of such list a
penalty of 50 per centum; and ulno makes
- the party so icf rising guilty "of a misde
' aiennor to be fined on conviction not ex
ceeding two hundred dollars. The bill
also provides that twenty-five per centum
shall be added to the tax-s of hinds nnd
lots forfeited instead often per centum ns
heretofore, and that all taxes unpaid on the
flrst day of May, in any ymr, shall bear on
interest of one per centum per month until
. ; paid or forfeited. Tho bill also further
make the following additijmul rule of evi-
. donee in suits or tax deeds, viz; That the
judgment for the suits f real
ettato , 1 for dclinqiieut taxis slm'.l
ostop all parties from rulxiug any
.objections thereto, or to a tax title based
thereon, which existed at or beforo the ren
dition of such judgment, and could have
been presented as a defence to tho applica
tion for such judgment in the court wherein
the same was rendered, and ns to all such
questions tho judgment itself shall be con
clusive evidence of its regularity and valid
ity in all collateral proceeding, except in
cases where tho taxes have been paid or tho
real estate not liable to assessment or taxa
tion. This is intended to make a tax deed
as strong as law can make it.
Tho section of the revenue law authoriz
ing county boards to sue for all forfeited
taxes due, was also amended by incorporat
ing into it substantially the sumo rule ot
evidence as above.
House bill 840 provides that assessments
of real estate shall hereafter be mado once
in four years instead of every year as here
tofore, all improvements and destructions to
be added or deducted annually, however.
The number of books are reduced to two,
instead of rive as heretofore, the assessor's
and collector's books being consolidated in
one book and the judgment, sale
and forfeited, and redemption records in
one book. This makes a very large saving
ing in labor and was strongly recommend
ed by the convention of County Clerks that
met at Springfield during the session of the
A strong effort was made in the joint
revenue committee of the senate and house,
which prepared the foregoing bills, to
change the time of the assessment ot prop
erty to January 1st so that the collections
could be made in the fall instead of spring
as now.. This change was strongly utged
by the members from Southern portion of
tho State and from Cook county, but was as
strongly opposed by the members from tho
Central and Northern portions of the State
on the ground that as on the first of January
the farmers in those portions of the Stato
had all their cattle and corn on hand, not
generally disposing of the same until Feb
ruary or March, it would be unfair to as
sess them full handed at a time of year
when the merchant's stock of goods was
most depleted besides the farmers in those
portions of the State had about given up
the raising of grain crops that could be
marketed in the fall with which to pay
taxes, and were only in funds after the sale
of their stock and corn in the snrinc In
asmuch as the members that opposed this
change, that would have been so satisfac
tory to the people of this end of the State,
out numbered those who were in favor of it
about four to one, it was hopelessly de
feated. THE OHIO DEMOCRACY.
Below we give the ticket put in the field
by the Ohio Democracy and the platform
upon which it stands.
The convention nominated the following
For Governor Thos. Ewing, of Fairfield.
For Lieutenant Governor A. V. Rice, of
For Trensurer Anthony Ilowekof stark.
For Auditor Chas. Rocmelin, of Ham
ilton. For Jud-;e of the Supreme Court W. J.
For Attorney General Isaiah Pillars, of
For Member of the Board of Public
Works Patrick O'Marah, of Cuyahoga.
The following platform was adopted :
Resolved, That the Democracy of Ohio
demands free and fair elections, and, to
that end, denounces all interference with
elections by military power; that the ex
perience of this and other countries has
abundantly proved that the presence of
troops at the polls is destructive of free
dom of elections, and is incompatible with
the existence of free institutions; that tho
laws enacted by Congress, which, under the
pretense of regulating the manner of Con
gressional election, interfere with the elec
tion of State officers and overthrow the
laws of the State governing the charge of
such officers, are unconstitutional and for
that reason ought to be repealed. That
they are also instrumentalities of fraud,
force and corruption, by which the party in
power uses the money of the people to cor
rupt, and thousand of irresponsible officers
to harass and coerce, the voter, and especi
ally by force and fraud to deprive natural
ized citiz ns of the right to vote, and for
these reasons also said laws ought to be im
Resolved, That impartial juries are es-
scutial to the administration ot justice, and
thereby to the preservation of liberty. That
no man can be secure in his person or prop
erty where juries arc packed and controlled
by the government for despotic and parti
zan purposes. That under the Federal
jury laws now in existence juries may bo,
nnd have been, so packed and controlled,
and that the highest interests of justice and
free government rcquiro that these laws be
changed so as to secure fair, impartial and
independent juries in tho Federal courts.
Resolved, That thu Republican , minor
ity in Congress, by refusing to vote sup
plies to maintain the government unless the
majority would agree to the use of troops
DATT.V. CAIRO BULLETIN :
at tho noils, and also to tho maintenance ot
tho unconstitutional, corrupting, violent
and unjust election laws aforesaid, and tho
President of the United States, by his un
precedented use of the veto power, In order
to pcrpetiiuto said laws, and tho uso of
armed men at tho polls, have shown a
spirit oi faction nnd a devotion to party
success, instead of tho welfare of the
country and tho preservation of its consti
tution and liberties, that demand the con
demnation of the whole American people.
Resolved. That Prcsidedt Hayes, by his
frequent intcrpositition of tho veto in order
to defeat legislation that was plainly con
stitutional, that in no way interfered with
the independence of any other department
of tho government, and had received the
most mature consideration of Congress, has
shown an utter disregard of tho considera
tion and principles that induced the in
sertion of the veto power in the Constitu
tion, and alike disregard of the wishes and
welfare of the people. J
Resolved, That we declare it as tho sense
of the Democracy of Ohio that not a dollar
should be appropriated by Congress to pay
soldier, Marshals Deputy Marhals, or sup
ervisors of Elections, to intefere with or
Resolved, That tho efforts of the Repub
lican party to open and keep alive tho nar
feeling between tho north and south are to
bo condemned by every lover of his country.
Resolved, That wc reaffirm the financial
principles heretofore advocated by the
Democratic party of Ohio; that the issue of
money in any form nnd the regulation
thereof belong to the general government
alone, and ought not to be delegated or in
trusted to individuals or corporations ; that
we therefore oppose the perpetuation of the
present national banking system, as a
means of control over the currency of the
country, and demand the gradual substitu
tion of treasury notes for national bank cur
rency, to be made receivable for all dues
and a legal tender equally with coin, such
government issues to be regulated upon
principles established by legislation or or
ganic law, so as to secure the greatest pos
sible stability of value.
Resolved, That after changing the valu
ation of all property from the scale of pa
per money by which tho heavy burden of
debts now resting on the people were
created, to the former level of gold and
silver, the change then made in the metal
lic standard itselt by the demonetization of
silver was a monstrous fraud on the people,
cunningly devised in the interest of the
holders of bonds, that should be condemned
as in violation of every principle of honest
dealing, and a covert assault on the funda
mental rights of property, and we there
fore demand the full restoration of silver to
its origiual place hs a money metal, the
same as gold.
Resolved, That the rapid increase of tho
interest-bearing debt of the Government
under the present administration, ought to
excite the serious apprehension of the peo
ple. We demand that the further increase
in the bonded debt in time ot peace be
stopped, and it be put in process of ex
Resolved, That the attack made on the
State Legislature iu the Republican plat
form is wholly undeserved, and that the
Legislature, in its arduous work of codify
ing the laws of the State, in the reduction
of fees and salaries of county officers, and
passage ct a law to protect the ballot and
prevent bribery at elections, deserves the
commendation ot the people of the State.
Resolved, That is the duty of our govern
ment to maintain to its fullest extent
the doctrine that a man may in good faith
change his habitation and become a citi
zen of any other country. We should pro
test in every part of the world all our nat
uralized citizens as wc would our native
born, and should resist all improper claims
on them by governmonts to which they no
longer owe allegiance. We demand that
existing treaties with all foreign govern
ments be rigidly enforced, and that early
steps be taken to obtain from the German
Empire a fuller recognition of the right of
expattion, and of the right of our naturaliz
ed citizens returning or having property
there, by a modification of the treaty be
