The war is etill on the carpet.
We whip the South tho South
whips us. We kill and wound
their men they kill and wound
our men, and there tho matter
stands at present. If our readers
want anything more about the
war, they must read the daily lying
Law and Order.
Header, good Union men, is the.
cry of tho day. But what does this
cry mean? If it have a meaning
at all, it means tho prosecution of
the present slaughtor of men, and
the emancipation of the slave pop
ulation of the South, by a devour,
ing sword ! Now, to such a war
doctrine wo cannot give in our ad
hesion. We do not approve of
any law or deed, that professes to
rise higher than the law of God.
If men profess to bo wiser than
their Maker, let them ! "We do not
belong to their tribe; neither do
wo wish to know their secrets. We
have never troubled a jail, or a
magistrate's chamber, and we aic
now, as we always have Ijecn, a
law abiding subject; but wo take
no side in the present American
controversy. Wo maintain that
wo have a moral and legal right to
show our opinion of what is pass
ing. We do not admit that tho
lion. C. L. Vallandighnni has been
fairly used, in the eye of God's
aw ; neither do we admit that
there is, or can be, a higher law
than the eternal law of God. Hie
enomieshave had their day ot tr'u
umph, but an overruling l'rovii
dence will yet show, that while
"clouds and darkness are round
about Him, (God,) righteousness
and equity arc the habitation of
His throne." We give tho exact
translation from tho Hebrew : see
97th realm, 2d verse-- Though
tho bulk of the Protestants have
thought proper to lay aside the
Bible, and misinterpret the will
and mind of God, we are firm, and
will die for the truth, sooner than
publish an opinion of which our
conscience docs not approve, and
therefore, wc do not approve of the
punishment inflicted upon Mr,
tguSomc persons come to our
office to ask us why wo give only
half a sheet, two or three times
a year. Our answer is, that we
have given the largest subscripi
tion to the "Press," of any man
that ever lived in Preble county,
and tlut Abraham Lincoln
taken tho printers into the army,
aud therefore, wo think that we
do our full share of the work, by
frequently working twcntyifour
hours a day, and by losing seven
dollars a week iu the bargain. Our
books are our witnesses. If the
Democrats of Treble can find
moro liberal and generous fool
than we have been, to support
thoir cause, let thoni do so, and
wo will rise from our desk and
tt"Wo attended a Union prayer
meeting, held at the M. E. church,
iu Eaton, ou Sunday, tho 10th iust.
Tho Rev. S. D. Clayton, after
had prayed, spoke, not of repent
ance, fai'h, pardon, peace, or justii
fieation through faith in the
atoning blood, but of the Amcri
can Flag; and went so far out
his way, as to toll hia hearers "that
America bad twice taught old Eng
land a lesson that ehe should have
remembered, but as 6he had for
gotten them, tho time was at hand
when old England would bo taught
a lesson which she would never
forget." We have given tho Rev.
gentleman's exact words, and,
tho name of tho Triuno Jehovah,
wo denounce such talk at a prayer
mectiug, as ungodly, antl-chrlstlan,
and immoral. Other apeakora woro
equally raving and impious.
"We beg our friends to remember
the meeting on Saturday, tho 30th
iust. Let every man who loves his
country moro than office, and who
desires tho restoration of Union,
peace and prosperity, attend. Let
no Unior.iloving, law-abiding citi
zen shirk the duty or responsibility
of being prescut. Let uono make
business an excuse when the inter'
ests of our country an I tho main
tenance of our liberties are at stake.
Some of our friends are still Mo
arrears on our hooks. We shall be
glad to soo some of their money on
that day. We continue to take
greenbacks and shinplastcrs at par.'

r The Eastern papers come to
us loaded with denunciations of the
arrest of Mr. Vallandigham. Our
friends haat must not suppose that
because very little is said in Ohio,
that there is no feeling on the sub:
ject. The feeling is far beyond the
audible expression of the people.
Under no circumstances did we ever
witness the same stato of tho public
mind. It pervades every part and
portion of the State. Scarcely a
word passes bctwoe:) the Democrats
aud Republicans they pass as to
The CoifscniPTi.-N Law. A spoi

cided that it is optional with him
to rcoeivo the money or reject it.

good Authority, that Mr. Seward
remarked to u gentleman of prom
inence of this city, while in Wash,
ington not long since, that "the
government would he under the
necessity of resorting to arbitrary
arrests or give up the war." The
gentleman replied. "Well, Mr.
Seward, then you will have to give
up tho war, tor you cannot make
any more arbitrary arrests in "the
State of New York." Nr. Seward
made no icply hut looked wise.
What a confession! An ailniinisi
(ration openly declaring that its
policy is so repugnant to tho pcoi
pie that if it toleratc'3 a free press
and free discussion, tho war will
become so unpopular that they
will bo forced to abandon it.
Every Republican paper in the
city of New York opposes the ar
rest of Mr. Vallandigham, except
the 'Times'. This Fpeaks volumes.
