; The Detriocratic Candidate'for State
e-uuaior is not p easea witn what we
have, in the conscientious dischargo of
our duty, found it necessary to say of
turn tn this paper. This is painful but
not surprising. The fact is we have
not consulted McJgubbell with refer
ence to what we should publish and
have neither desired or; -attempted to
cater to- lite; wishes.. His relations to
, tho'RepublicaiV party during the last
eighteen months have been such as we
supposed relieved us from that formal
ity, whatever obligations his position
prior to that time as a sapient and con
sistent expounder.bf Republican .prinJ
doles may-have imposed upon us. '
But it seems Tve have been mistaken;
Notwithstanding the fact that Mr.
Hubbell has attested his dovotion to
the Democracy' by tears of anguish
over the martyrdom of Vallandigham
and the untimely capture of "Presi
dent" Davis, notwithstanding he has
for full eighteen months identified
himself as a full eommunionist among
the faithful and unterrifie of the Dem
ocratic church, it seems he still bears to
Ithe Republican party the relation of
' one " .

This may seem a little dogmatic on
. itubbeli's part, or rather to suggest
that rare faculty, only possessed by a
certain clas of politicians, which en
ables them to manage two diverse po
; litical parties at oiie and the same time,
-furnishing the necessary brains to
both. We will not stop to discuss this
, latter proposition. The impossibility
of compliance with the condition last
named places it, in this instance,
wholly out of the case. It is only with
Mr. Hubbell's assumed censorship
over this paper that we have now to
do, and more especially the manner in
- which he has chosen to exercise it.
In this connection and as a part of
the current history of these eventful
times we quote the following, which
we find'set forth this week in the col
umns of the Herald, a paper supposed
to be Mr. Hubbell's personal organ.-
..Jl?,?:n Saturday last an affrav oc

or it; he met that genileman in the second
scry of the Williams Bio. k, and commenc
ed operations by the selzius him bv the
neck and administering several hearty
blows; Mr. Lee disei.tantded himself, and
both pariles then squared off into position
the "four easy lessons on Punilism.''

This is the quaai-Hubbell version oi
the manner in which onr wholly per-!
verse and evil-bcgotteri course: in the
conduct of this paper has been chas-f
, tened and corrected during the past
week in accordancewith Mr. Hubbell's
" most approved and wholly Democratic
method. The author, it is fair tn pre
sume, has given Mrj Hubbell the ben
efit of the best version he could, but
wo submit whether after all, he has
shown Mr. Hubbell capable of doing
more to avenge his injured innocence
than like Artemus Ward, to contribute
a relative to fight his battles. This
Demo tValrtOU9, and ve from a
Democratic stand-point, ,nd ou
- temporary, as well as Mr. Hubbeu i
certainly welcome to all the consolal
tion it will afford him.
-out mere are otner chapters to the
JrleraltVs story which give it quite
uiuorent complexion, and which its
publication makes it incumbent' upon
us to lay before the public.
un friaay evening last. Mr. J. R.
Hubbell, without intimation of his
purpose or the cause of his grievance,
followed us from the street, and hav-
. ; mg placed hia manly form before us
on the stairway leading to this office.
threatened us with personal violence.
We passed him by, unheeding, so far as
..possible, either him or .'his threat,
though made tho subfect of a volloy oi
.ddltional threats-ovocative ep
ithets before out of ISmiPS- This pro
cess was repeated during "hr morning
and at noon of Saturday, with the im
portant difference that Mr. itubbell
did not place himself In our way. On
all three occasions he chose a time
when no one -was present to witness
his performances, and spoke in a tone
which ; apparently indicated a desire
not to be overheard.
On Saturday evening a young man
at the time not known to ns as
n of Mr. Hubkll's, and who we have
been eince Informed, was seen in his
company a few minutes previously,
attempted to carry these threats into
execution. Having followed as np the
main flight of etairs leading to this
office this gentle "stripling" selected
a moment for his playful mischief
i, nntifimr his nresence and
t. 11 v-. , ..'.w ....... r- .
hiinir nr attention directed
him, we had stopped to speak
to an
.;ntinM whom we IIJCT.
on the
landing place.
The assailed being
Brst seized by the Bhoulders then push
ed against the wall, will scraceiy
attempt a description of the thrilling
scene which followed, even through
history may be incomplete and the
books of chivalry will lose a luminous
chapter. Suffice it to say that having
succeeded in geting our face to the foe
the latter soon found it convenient to
fall back upon his reserves, which we
believe was done with creditable order
and dispatch. The "several hearty
blows" of which deponent is said to
have been the victim be is compelled to
state are one of Bro. Hurlbutt's playful
fictions which we cannot for a moment
suppose to have been ftheryl byi h
wish. . . i r -
And now a word as to the vamis leUi:
It is true that we have said things not
complimentary to Mr. Hubbell's polit
ical course, and we are informed that
thix is his chief arround of offunse not
any allusion of a strictly personal- na
ture. But we are not consciotis of hav
ing uttered an tintruth concerning him
or done him an injustice. Did we be
lieve anything we have said was un
true or unjust we would ba swift to re
tract and apologize for it. But w hat
we have said is certainly not worse
thau he has himself spoken of promi
nent Republicans, and as we happen to
know, is fully concurred in by many
excellent citizens of this community,
who have expressed to us their cordial
approval of its utterance. -Neither 19
there any attempt at a public denial
of it. Mr. Hubbell is not merely a
private citizen but a candidate for of
fice and as such is a legitimate, subject
of reasonable criticism. We have flat
tered ourselves with having been par
tieularlv charitable and lenient to
wards him, and we now bear him no
ill-will. But as journalists we have a
duty to discharge an obligation to the
cause of right and justiceto funl which
we hold more sacred than Mr. Hubbell's
good will. To that cause, as it seems to
us, he has proven recreant and, we can
not commend his course. Silence
would be consent and to half comdemn
would be to half approve,
But for the publicity given by the
Herald to one assault made upon us
we should probably have had nothing
to say iii reference to the others, altho
the threats which have been made
might have given occasion to construe
our S'lenceas the result of eowardiee.
Since the public has been made ac
quainted with part -of the story, it is
important that -it should know the
whole, We have reserved many things
we might have said, but as to saying
what we have, we believe there is no
option left us.
Advice we are always glad to receive.
and apologies we are ever ready to
make when convinced that we afB"
wrong, but we are compelled to make
those understand, who undertake it,
that by no amount of threatening or
violence can we be intimidated from
doing that which, in our relations to
the public, we conceive to be our duty.
We fully endorse the following from
the Xenia Gazette. Gen. Comly richly i
deserves the appointment mentioned
and we believe it is enrnesOy desired
'or trim by Republicans in all purls of.
the State who know of and appreciate
Ms services as a soldier and journalist.
The Gazette says :
We are glnd to know that a very
'ante number of the best citizens of
Columbus de. ire the appoimmen' of
Gen. Jnies M. Comly to the Columbus
Postoffice. The General is, in the first
olace, competent in every respect to
tiscbarge the duties of the posiiiou ac
ceptably. Then, too, he rendered mom
effiuleui service to the c ountry in the
fluid, and since the war. he hxs, as edi-
or oi tne onio Stat journal, Deen a
most able, efficient and faithful wnrk-
r in the Republican ranks. It ouaht
o be borne in mind that the conductor
of a Republican iournal in Columbus,
iu the couuly ot X taiiklin, holds a mot
responsible and difficult posiiion, In
volvinK arduous and continuous labors.
The State organ has not always - been
a success. Its career hs shown a seri
es of experiments, some of them fail
.nn from tnisnixnagrement, some from
dullness snd lack of energy aud snip.
In Gen. Comly's hands, however, the
naper has given no canse of complaint.
Tne concern has been managed in a
husiness-iiue stvle and the paper itself
is better than the State organ has ever
been, in its paimiesi clays, jno ciaper
excels it in iis general fealures. Its edi
torials strike . rum the Bboulder ana ac
complish much toward toning up Ihe
Kpubltcon presi of toesiate.

business that calls eo much for econo

all the euocei-stul journals I know of, I

It is supposed that Hubfcell 'now. in

the Marysville Tribune, who says : :
Hubbell, of Delaware that is, the
Immortal Jeems, has managed to get
himself nouiiuaied fur Slate Senator

Although he is but a novice in the
Democratic paity, the pin iciihers . be

relused to turn tho . gruid-tine longer

parly declaring that he had not been a

The Democi a:y will hud him worse
