The Bucyrus Journal says : On Sua day evening, W. P. Warden, Esq , of North Robinson, while attempting to get on the freight train, moving at the rate of twelve or fourteen miles an hour, was thrown under the hind car, which passed over his left leg. Dr. A. E. Jenner; of Crestline, was sent for, and found the leg so severely crush eqVas to render amputation necessary and the leg was taken off by Dr J., just below the knee, in a very skillful manner.

Gloves of every shade and color appeared on tne hands of both ladies and gentlemen, while the latter all carried the button hole boquet, without which a London man of lashion would not be consider ed dressed. On Monday night last, says the Vis mouth Advertiser, an entrance to the Express office, at this place, was effect ed by burglars, and an onslaught made upon a safe in the room. A hole was made through the iron door with a chisel, and the vacuum heavily charg ed with powder, a fuse inserted, and the eafe blown. The lock and door lin ing were entirely blown off. and a way at once opened to the inner safe. The burglars however, got nothing for their trouble, except some papers belonging to Mr. S. M. Robinson, of no value to any but himself. Tbo valuables or the office were in a burglar proof safe, in the back room. On this they tried their hands, but gave up in despair, or were alarmed and left. It appears that they also made an efiort to effect an entrance into tbo clothing store of Solomon Spear, but a shot from the clerk put them to flight.

On ber arrival at the home oJ her brother, she found bim hale and hearty. Thinking that she had been deluded for the purpose of robbing, she telegraphed to Mayor Sluts to send a policeman to watch the house until her return, which as ae- cordingly done n iwever, oii her re turn, she discovered that the upper rooms of the house had been entered, and $175 in gold, and greenbacks to the amount of $200 or $300 hal been taken. Suspicion fell on a servant girl of bad character, living in the honse. and on being threatened with arrest, she confessed that the dispatch was written by "her man," living in Chicago, and that after the departure of Mrs. Mer cer he bad obtained an entrance ia the house and secured the money. She ae knowledged that the gold was in her possession, but that the man had ta ken the greenback?, and offered to re store it, and upon these conditions was released. She left on the train for tbe East on Sunday. ' . GENERAL QRANT. General Grant b upon his election eering tour to-day. We shall see what enthusiasm his presence inspires. Hew YorkExpret. We have seen it here in Cincinnati. The General arrived upon the Little Miami Railroad on Wednesday after noon ; but, although it was known long in advance when ne . was coming, he met no reception whatever. He passed through our streets, with his family, as unnoticed as any private citizen. There was no public interest excited by his presence ; no desire to see him. He received no acclaims, met no commit tees, inspired no cheers, and evoked no enthusiasm from his partisans. Noth ing as cold and frigid was ever before heard of in the reception of a Presi dential candidate. Except that his name is at the head of the Radical journals, we should not know in the West that be was running for Presi dent. His nomination has literally fallen still-born in all this region. No ratification meetings have been held, and no organizations have been formed in his support. It is admitted by the Radicals that his selection was a ter rible mistake : that he has none of tbe elements of popularity which tV.ey sup- poseu ne possesseu. jus eiecuoue r mg tour has brought out this fact in the strongest light. Enquirer. From indications in every, section of the country, General Grant will ut terly fail to combine the strength of his party. While by his perseverence and dogged persistence, backed by a half million of men and all the ener gies of the Government, he finally succeeded in compelling General Lee, wiih an effective army of forty or fifty thousand men, to surrender, all the balance of hia military career was a signal failure. As to Lis capacity for the management .of the civil affairs of this great country, be has repeatedly admitted his incompetency. He pos- seses no qualification that renders him fit to administer a Government like ours ; and if Mr. Pendleton, or any other fit man, is nominated, will be beaten by a greater majority than that of .Pierce over General Scott. - INDECENT. The only thing that occurred to mar the perfect success of the Sabbath School Celebration on the 4th, was the bombastic effort of T. C. Bush nell. It is remarkable that such fel lows as Judge Bushnell, who have boxed the compass on every political absurdity that has cursed the land for the last fifteen years, cannot let slip any occasion without obtruding their crude and silly polifinnl notions into every performance, sacred or profane. Jast think of ifc . ?The illustrious Pro bate Judge of Ashland county, Ohio, takes it upon himself, in the presence of two or three hundred children, to demonstrate that Mr. Washington, (?) Mr. Jefferson, . Mr. Madison, Mr. Ames and Mr. Hancock, were mere dolts, compared with the aforesaid Tnlly. Ye Gods 1 what a spectacle I How Tully shrieked, and screeched, and gesticulated! Like the carrion" vulture that feasts and gorges on de cay and corruption, this fellow revels in the political pollutions of the times, and if he could - have his way, we would not be able to enter a church, however impressive the occasion, with out having a mess of his pottage thrust under our nose : and we con fess, that we envy not the man who has the temerity to attempt, on such an occasion, to trifle with the indul gence of a thinking audience. , . BUTLER'S REPORT. Telegrams from Washington an nounce every few days that the " Beast wilt be ready to report m a brief time on the impeachment affair.

He proposes to. show that all the Re publican Senators that vqted against impeachment rere purchased, like sheep in the shambles, for a price. This is indeed a very interesting task for the spoon thief, one that suite hi8 noble genius. . The idea that Butlor steeped in theft and crime, should at tempt to expose other men less gnilty than himself is indeed a rich spectacle.

The convention to nominate a Dem ocratic candidate for Common Pleas Judge of the sub-division of the Sixth Judicial District of Ofhio will be held at Mt- Gilead,- Morrow County, Ohio, on Thursday, July 23, 1868. By order of Judicial Committee. GENERAL G. W. MORGAN. The Democracy of the 13th Con gressional District have re-nominated General George W. Morgan for Con gress. The. convention . is described as having been one of the largest ever held in the "district. Great enthusi asm prevailed, and the Democracy of that district intend to send the Gen eral back to Congress by such a ma jority as will rebuke the rotten trick sters that deprived him of a seat to which he was justly entitled. THE CONVENTION. We have delayed our issue one day, hoping to be able to give our reader8 the result of the Convention now in session iu New York ; but having reached tho eighteenth (allot without any definite result, we haws concluded to defer the further transactions of the Convention till our next issue. ! The platform. a sjnopsis "of which we give in the proceedings of the .Con vcotion, was unanimously adopted, and is regarded as a triumph in favor of Mr. Pendleton. His financial theories are fully and clearly expressed in. the platform, and seemed to meet tb en thusiastic support of the Conveation The best of feeling prevails in the Convention. We cannot, . with .eer. tainty, tell who will be the .nominee ; but still trust that the Convention will select the favorite champion of the West, Mr. Pendleton. We would, o course, bo pleased to see him nomi nated; yet, if the Convention sees fit to select any other sound man, with' a good recorJ, m e arc satisfied the De mocracy of the West will acquiesce, and give tbe nominee a hearty support.' We believe it is the duty of the Democratic party to frown down all at tempts to produce faction in our ranks; and while wo are seeking to advance soubd principles, and are making a tig orous effort to bring the country lsc' to the Constitution, and the Union, as formed by our fathers, it becomes .our duty to think less of men and more of fundamental principles, that the high' and important mission of the Demo cratic party mjy bo successful, and peace, harmony and pro3 parity one more shower their blessings on our country. The Soldiers' acd Sailors' Conven tion, now in session in New York, has endorsed the Democratic platform, and the members of that convention are disposed to heartily support cur - norai nee." We trust the Convention wjll have the good sense to reciprocate this advance by nominating an acceptible man for the Vice Presidency. If so, our triumph is certain. National Democratic Convention.

The first thing presented was a se ries of resolutions offered by Wright, of Delaware, from Alex. H. Stephens, the bare mention of which was greeted with cheers, being in tne main patri otic and commendatory of tho course of tbe North in the conduct of the war. - i . ' On motion of Richardson, of Illi nois, the resolutions were referred to the Committee on Resolutions. THE PLATFORM. Murphy, of New York, rose to re port from the Committee on Resolutions the platform agreed upon, and which be sent to the chair, where they ' were read. They declare that tbe Demo era tic party, reposing trust in tbe in telligence of the people, standing up on the Constitution and recognizing slavery and secession as settled by the war or voluntary action of the Southern States, and never to be renewed, 'do demand the immediate - restoration of all the States cheers ; amn'es'y for all political offenses, aod the right of suf frage in all the States ; that the pay ment of the public debt, where the obligations do not expressly state on their face, or the law under which they were issued does not provide for the payment in coin, should be paid in the lawful money of the United States prolonged cheers; fourth, the equal taxation -of all property, including' Government bonds Jcbeers ; fifth, one currency for tbe Government and peo ple,' laborers and office .holders, pen sioner and soldiet . producer and bond holder great cheers; and, sixth, econ omy in administration, reduction of the army and navy, abolition of the Freed men's Bureau cheers, and of the in quisitorial modes of colleetiag the tariff for revenue, and such equal taxation under the internal revenue laws as will afford incidental prDtectioti to industry; seventh, the subordination of the mili tary to tbe civil power; eighth,' equal rights and protection for native and adopted citizens agaiost the dootrineof immutable allegiance ; they denounced the Usurpation and tyranny of the Radical party, its violation of the pledge that the conduct of tho war was only for the preservation of the Union, and declared that it had subjugated States, overthrown freedom of speech and of press, -to established the system of Cspoinage, diregarded the habeas corpus, made of the National Capitol a bastile, and threatened to destroy the original jurisdiction of the Supreme Court, and maligned the Chief Justice because of his integrity on the trial of the President. . Tbo report continued at considerable length to reiterate these abuses, and, in conclusion, declared . that the privi'ege and trust of suffrage belongs exclusively to the ' control of each State, and that Congress has usurped it, in violation of the Constitution ; spccfically denounced the Reconstruction Acts as an usurpa tion, unconstitutional and void; held that soldiers' and sailors' pensions should be faithfully paid, and the pub lie lands should be n served for home steads, arid thaLkcd Andrew Johnson for resisting the agpressions of Con gress. Great cheers. In conclusion the' report invites men of all parties In tbepnst to unite on this platform, .j ijurphy moved the previous ques tion, which was ordered with few dis Bcnoiig votes. A deWi-a'o called for a re-reading, and there were great cries of M ques tion question," whieh was put and the report was adopced with lew dissent ing voices, when the Convention rose to their feet, with cheering. two-third Rule The President of the Convention then .wished an understanding of the two thirds rule to be agreed upon. Richardson , of Illinois, offered a reso lution that two thirds' of all the votes cast shall bo necessary to nominate. Kernan, of New York, fiercely op posed this view, contending for a two thirds of all the votes, to which the Convention is entitled. Richardson replied that when his candidate came up, he would camp down in the hall till he received two thirds. This was received with great applatue. After a confusion of motions tbe President setth d the difficulty by giv ing, his understanding of the rule, say ing.thathe wonld not declare any can didal nominated till he gets 212 votes tw -hirlsol lbs electoral cellpge, un less otherwise instructed by the con vention. The appeal of tl e delegate from Mon tar a to allow Terr tories to vote- the Uhitr ruled out ol order, the question having been decided agaiost them yes terday. ' NAJil-VO OF CANDIDATES.

D. 1861 in accepting the condition of civil war, winch wa brought about by insurrection and rebellion in several of the States which constitute the United States, the two Houses of Congress did solemnly declare that that war was not wacd on the part of the Government in any spirit ot oppression, nor lor any purpose of codquest or subjugation, cor for any purpose of overthrowing or in terfering with the rights or established institutions of the States, but only to defend and maintain the supremacy of the Constitution of the United States, and to preserve the Union with all the dignity, equality and rignts ot tne sev eral States unimpairedrand that as soon T-1-p as those obi eels should, be accompiisn ed the war on the part of the Govern ment should cease ; and, Whereas, T ie President of the Unif ied States has heretofore in the spirit of that declaration aod " with the view of securing for it an ultimate and com pletc effect, set forth several proclaoia tions i fieri ng amnesty and pardon to p-sons who had been or w re cocccrn ed in ii" afore named rebellion, wnicn proclamation.", rwever, were attcnaca with prudential reservations -and ex ceptions then deemed necessary and nrnnAr. and which nroclamtions were respectively i-sued on the 8 th day ol December, 1S63, on tbe aotn aay o March, 1864, on the 29th day of May, 1865, and on the 7th day of Septem ber, 1867 ; and Whereas, The said lamentable civil war has long since altosetber ceased, with an acknowledgement by all the States of the supremacy of the Federal Constitution and of the GoMroment thereunder, and there no longer exists any reasonable ground to apprehend a renewal of tbe said civil war, or any foreign interference, or any unlawful resistance by any portion of the people of any of the States to the Constitution and laws of the United Slates ; and Whereas, It is desirable to reduce the s'anduig army, and to bring to a speedy termination military ocenpatiop, oartial law. militarv tribunals, abridge ueBt of the freedom of speeoh and of the press, and the suspension or tbe privileges of habeas corpus, aod of the right of trial by jury, such encroach ments upon our free institutions in time of peaco being dangerous to pob'.io lib erty, incompatible with the individual rights of the citizen, contrary to the genius and spirit of our republican form of government, and exhaustive of tbe national resources ; and, Whereas, It is believed that amnesty and pardon will tend to secure a com plete and universal estabiisnment ana prevalence of the municipal law and order in conformity with the Constitu tion of the United States, and to re move all appearances and presumptions of a retaliatory or vindictive policy on the part of the Government, attended by unnecessary pains, penalties, confis cations and disfranchisements, and on the contrary to promote and procure complete fraternal reconciliation among the whole people, .with due submission to the Constitution and laws; Now, therefore, be it known that I, Andrew Johnson, President of tbe United States, by virtue of the Consti tution and in the name of the people of the United States, do hereby proclaim and . declare unconditionally and with out reservation to all and every person who directly or indirectly participated in the .late insurrection or rebellion, ex cepting such person or persons as may be under presentment or indictment in any Court of the United States having competent jurisdiction, upon a charge of treason or other felony, a full .am nesty for the offense of treason against the United Slates or of adhering to their enemies during tbe late civil war with the restoration of all the rights of property, except as to slaves and except also as to any property of which any person may have been legal-' y divested under the laws of the United States. I In testimony whereof, a have signed these presentd with my hand, and have caused the seal of tbe Uni-l -"' ted States to be here-unto affixed, Done at the city of Washington, the Fourth day of July in the year of our Lord One Thousand Eight Hundred and Sixty Eight, and of the Independence of the United States of America the Niutty Third. By the President Andrew Johnson, Wm. H. Sewabd, Sec'y ot State. ; VETO OF TITE ARKANSAS Washington, June 20 The President sent the following message to Congress to day: To the Bouse of Representatives: : I return without mv sienature, a bi 1 ontitlftd "An act to admit the State of Arkansas to representation in Con gress." The approval of this bill would be an admission on the part of the Ex ecutive that the act for tbe more effi cent govcrment of the rebel - States, passed March 2, 1867, and the acts suDplementary thereto, were proper and constitutional. My opinion, how ever, in reference to these measures, has undergone no change, but on , the contrary has been strengthened by the results whioh have attended their ex ecution. Even were this not the ease I could not consent to a bill which is based upon the assumption, either that by an act of rebellion of a portion of its people the State of Arkansas , seoeded from the Union, or that Congress may, at itj nleasnre exDtlorexclude aSlate from the Union, or interrnpt its relation with i . . , . -i j l tbe Uovernment By arDiiraxuy ucjmit ing it of representation in the Senate and House ot Representatives. If Ark ansas is not a State in the Union thia bill does not admit it as a State. If, on the other hand, it is a State in the Union, no legislation is necessary to declare it entitled to representation in Congress as one of tbe States of the Union. The Constitution already de clarcs each Mate Bhall have at least one Representative, that the Senate shall be. composed of two Sanatora from each State; that no State, without ta con sent, shall be deprived . of its equal suffrage in that Senate, rt also makes each house the judae of the election returns and qualifications of its own members, tnd therefore all that is nee essary to secure Arkinsasin all its con stitutional relations to the Govern mcnt, is a decision by each hoi si upon the eligibility of those who, preentinj their credentials, claim seats in the re snpetive houses of Congress. ' J his is the plain and simple plan of the Con-' stitution: and believing that had it been pursued when Congress assembled in the month of December, . 1865, the restoration of the States would have long since been completed, 1 once strain aaruestlv rccom nend that it be adnnted bv each House in preference to the legislation which I respectfully submit, is not onj of doubtful constitu tionality, and therefore " unwisov and dangerous as a precedent, but is unnec essary, is not so effective in its' opera tions as the mode prescribed by the Constitution, involves an additional de lay, and is from its terms rather ap nlic&Lle to a territory about to be ad um -o a rr.,ory mi' tea as one oi iuo oui than a State which has occupied a place o. i . v:v i . ... in the Union for npwads of a quarter of a century. The bill "declares that Arkansas is entitled and admitted to representation in Congress, as one of tho States of the Union, upon the lollowing lundamentai r . 1 .- t- . . : I That the Constitution o shall never be sc amended or changed as to deprive any citizen or c'as3 of citizens of the United States of a vote who are entitled to vote by the Con stitution herein recognized, except .for th pun'shment of crimes that are. now felonies at common law, whereof thpy shall have been convicted, equally ap pf xible t ) all the inhabitants of , the said State, provided the alteration of said Stale, prospective in its effect, may be made in regard to the. time and place of residence of voters. I have be.n enable to find in the Constitution of the United States any warrant for the exorcise of the authority thus claimed by CongrS3 in assuming power to impose fundamental conditions on a State which has been duly admitted into ihe Union on an equal footing with the original States in all rcpect what t ever. Congress asserts a right to enter a State as it may a Territory, and to, regulate the highest prerogative of a free people the el.ctive franchise The question ia reserved by tho Con stitution to the States themselves, and to concede to Congress the power to re gulate this subject would be to reverse the fundamental principles of the Re public and place in tbe hands of the Federal Government, which U a crea ture of the States, the sovreignty which justly belongs to the States or the peo pie, the true source of all political power by whom our Federal system -was created, and to whose will it is subordinate. The bill fails to provide in what manner the State of . Arkansas is to signify its acceptance of the fun damental oondition whieh Congress endeavors to make unalterable and irrevocable ; nor does it prescribe a pen alty to be imposed should the people of the Stats amend or change the par ticular portion" of the . Constitution whieh it was one of the purposes of the bill to perpetuate, but as to the con sequence of suoh action as leaves them in uncertainty and doubt when the circumstances under which this' Con stitution has been brought to tbe at tendon of Congress are considered, it is not unreasonable to suppose efforts will be made to modify its provisionss, espe cially those in respect to which this measure prohibits aay alteration, It is seriously questioned whether tho Con stitution has been ratified by a majority of the persons, who, under the' act of March 2d,. 1865, and the acts supple mentary thereto, were entitled to regis tration and to vote npon that issue. Section 10 of the schedule provides that no person disqualified from voting' or registering under . this Constitution shall vote for any candidates for . any office, or be permitted to vote for the ratification or rejection of the Constitu tion at the polls, ' herein authorised assumed to be in force before its adop tion. In disregard of the laws of Con gress, the Constitution undertakes to impose npon the electors bthir further conditions The 5th section of the 8th arficlo provides that all persons before registering or.voting must ake f nd anb ftcribe toan eath, which among ethiirsi -contains the following elause : "That I accept the civil and political equality of alt men, and ..agree not to attempt to deprive any person or peroas on account of race, color or previous coodltloAof apoXttel2ivtt tight, i privilege or immunity enjoyed bj any other class ot men." - It is well known thai a': very large portion of tbe electors in all the States, if not all, do not believo in or accept the practical equality o( Jntjians Mon golians or negroes, with tbe race' which they belong. If the voters .in the States of the North and West were ve qu:red to take such an oath as a test -of their qualification there' is reason to be lieve that a majority of them' wouTilre. . main from tne polls rathef than 90mpij with such degrading conditions. How far and o what 'extent this Tesi' ''oath pri ven-d the rogTstration of thosewho w re qialiSed under the lawsr fjfCon gress, it is impossible to know, but that u h was its effect, at least sufnciont to overc ime the email and doubful major ity in favor of the constitution, there can. be no .reasonable doubt. " Should the people of Arkansas, therefora, desir ing to regulate the elective franchise so as. to make it contorm to'the institu tions of a large proportion of the States of the North and West, and modify the p.-ovisona referred to in the fundaeaen lal condition, what is the consequence? Ts it intended that a denial Of represen tation shall follow?. If so,-may" we., not . provoke, at some future day,., a reour-. renceofthe troubles which - have ao 'OB l agitated the 'country? ' Would, it not be the part of wisdom to take' for our guide tbe ederai constitution rather than resort to measures whieh, lookiog only to the present may ' in a few years renew in an aggravaled"ibfm ' the strife and bitterness caused Dy; leg islation which has proved to be i ov ill timed and unfortunate ? - ' .
