ED. JOURNAL, Dear Mfi-VnU
you allow me a short space in your
paper for a word or two, in regard to
a portion of an article in tho Ih'mo
crat, of Oct. (Jth, headed A False
hood Refuted."—With the main
part of the article I have nothing to
do, at present, and will pass it with
the remark that I presume it is about
as correct as the particular part that
refers to myself which reads as fol
lows:—"For the term of 180-1-5, E.
F. Kperry, Treasurer, was paid in ad
dition to his salary, clerk hire to the
amount of $651." If the author of
the article could read and would go
to the records-in the Auditor's oflice
he would find that on the 8d day of
January, lK()j, I presented a bill for
Deputy hire for the year 1S65,
amounting to $200, which was reject
ed. It was presented again at the
June session and laid over until the
the Sept. session 1MKJ at which time
the Board allowed $206 and that is
every cent that was ever allowed or.
asked for during tho term of 18(»4-5.
The author of the article referred to
knr.tr thin to bcafuct,m the records
plainly nhow it. Where did he get
hi* figures? some might ask. Ho may
have obtained them from tiii»source,
viz: The Auditor's hooks show that
orders were issued as follows Dec.
22, 1801, E. Baker, form-vices making
out Tax hooka for 1801, $70 Dee. 8
th
18W, K. Baker, and E. F. Bperry,
for making out Tax book* for 1865,
$:}75. This work was done by us, at
the request of the county Clerk,
whose duty it wa« to have it done.
It was no part of the Treasurer's work
and never has been and Mr. Baker
was employed to do the Job, the
same as C. li. Boydston U now doing
it. They are so good at figures, per
hopH, they will add his pay, to the
present Treasurer's salary. The
same records, referred to, in the
Auditors ollice, fail to show that I
ever received a cent, for Deputy
hire for the year (lSOJ)of my term.
It woald be only simple justice to
myself for me to say a word here
in regard to the $206, allowed me for
the year 1865. There wero circum
stances connected with that transact
ion, and my term of office that had
not before occurred, and have not
since with any man wluj has been
elected to tiioso offices.
But I wili not occupy your space
further. Should you deem this
worthy of notice, please iblish the
aaiue. E. i

were a citizen of tho Htate would not
vote cither ticket. lie was a Demo
crat. He asserted that for seventy
five years under Democratic rule not
a single man or woman in the Uni
ted States was ever arrested or pun
ished without due process of law."
The Democratic party had always
been the especial champion of free
dom of speech. He endeavored to
give the Republican party a terrible
chastisement for having successfully
fought to put down the rebellion and
preserve the Union, and for not hav
ing made war upon Spain when the
Virginius troublo gave it such an
excellent opportunity. He denied
iu the most positive terms that
the Democratic party had "ever en
slaved one human being in this
country." The Jtilsiot cites the a bo v*
statements, among others as samples
of the falsity and absurdity of Dean's
doctrines, and pronounces the speech
incoherent, and "a miserable failure
for Dean, both in point of matter and
delivery, but accounts for it by his
having so much bourbon iu the
stomach, that it interfered with the
proper flow of bourbon ideas from
the head.

The Chicago Dally TribwVf rtf the
20th, devotes four columus and a
half of elaborate detail to the mar
riage of the daughter of Geu. Sher
man, granddaughter of the Hon.
Thomas W. Ewing of OI1I04 The
grandfather of the Bride was rocked
in a sugar trough, earned his first
money chopping cord wood, studied
Black Stone by tho light of the fur
nace fire while watching the salt
kettles on the Kanawa, went bare
foot at college except Sundays, but
stood without a rival in class or on
college green, and by his own inhe
rent strength of body and brain
won for himself honor, wealth and
fame.
If ever spirits blest are given to
know the thoughts and actions of
their friends below, one wonders how
this earnest-, honest, whole-souled,
simple-minded Republican, would
regard the display, extravagance,
fashionable folly, ceremouiet^o avt n
tionalisms, diamonds, gros giaines,
velvets, laces, tulle, flowers and non
sense that will demoralize tho nation,
as seen at the wedding of his grand
daughter, only one generation re
moved from his sugar trough cradle.
Surely Republican simplicity is
fast fading out among the leaders of
society.
It is said by our old men that
wealth earned by the grandfather is
almost invariably squandered by the
third generation in this free country
where overy man walks after the
dictates of his own sweet will.
Wre are curious to look into the
future and see a wedding of a grand
daughter of the Sherman-Fitches.
