Republican Radical and Mongrel Court
iy convention."
Brookvulk, A r-nn, 21, tC3.
Editor Amtr Am, -Under the caption
of 4,Kepublicat Radical and Mongrel
County Convention! there appeared . an
articlo in the trnnklU Democrat of April
17th, 1SG3, purporting to bo a descriptiou
of tho Union Convention held at the Court
House on tho llth day of April, 1SC3.
The article In queation covered nearly
one-half of the seoond pe of. tho MBec-
ord of the Unterrtfiod," and was a truly
pitiful and labored attempt at eloquence
and wit. In visw of tho f-ct that there
was a dearth of tho former and an utter
absence of anything laughable If) if, we
feel it our duty to xpreae our kindest
sympathy for the unfurl una to writer.
The very title ia a blunder, or. rather, a
"truth told unconsciously" concerning the
Copperheads in attendance. Tho writer
admit that we were a "Republican Con
Tontioo," and we seeing none of the
canine or African species present infer
lliat the word ''Mongrel'' waa applied to
bis lloruooratio frieudi pro-nnt. '
Aa a specimen of Democratio veracity,
it is unimpeached and uuimpoachable, i;or
is its un-grsmmatical contraction less to
mark able and doner ing of note!' The writer
says of President Burton: "On taking tho
chair. he said tiiar, so far as our knowledge
exieudx, and not wishing to do him tu
justice, we give his txact language." Tho
ttnte, in the above remarkable ffl'uiion, is
hardly a intelligible aa oauld be desired
not, indeed, as clear as the Nonsense.
If the writer mean that be could not np
pttciate the remarks of Major Burton,
then it is a specimen of Domoctutio frank
neaa seldom met with. We are truly sorry
fur him, and if his friends desiro it, will
do all in our power to aocuro him a com
fortable home in ono of the chiritable
inttitutions" of our State, where he will
not be compelled to listen to sensible
speeches, nor bu obliged to confess that
knowledge" dues not extend sufficiently
fir" to enable him to interpret a lew
plaiu, common-sense remaiks.
But by the expression ued, ho perhsr s
meaus to couftss that his situation at the
time was not auch aa admitted of a display
of extensive 'knowledge." This is the
most reasonable view of tho ease, made
j more plausible by the "rosy hue' upen
i nc auspeeieu tuuiviuuai n pnii wiuie iiiuus
liicusty taking notes of the proceedings,
us well as by tho excited and incoherent
manner in which be replied to fiustions
asked by his brother "Mongrels," as he
calls them.
It may be, however, that, in tho wild
ravings of bia unbridled imsgiiiation, he
meaus to say Major Burton said nothing.
when ho took hit teat as Chairman of the
Convention. True, he contradicts that
statement in the tarnt mlmcr; but that
proves nothing. Democratic principles and
platforms are made up of contiadictious,
inconsistcacies and bad whisky, and the
writer was only following the example of
"Brcthtri goo before,"
when he writes in that style. We suspect
that he was pretty full of the above "plat
form at the time, and, like all other per
itolia ! fUUipuUM, luut-t Hot, I'M held rO
1 sponsible lor the matters ana things he has
a . a a
I t li
loyen to write.
In tho same paragraph be promises us
the Mnjor's "exact languigo,'' but it is
not furthcoming. History is silent as to
the reason of this little discrepancy, but
tradition says a solution to the problem
may be found in tho fact that several Dem
ocratic "watering places'' were iu proximi
ty to the scene of our hero's exploits, and
that as genius even will flag ut times,
and the most gigantic intellect succumb to
bodily infirmities, it is but reasonable to
suppose that (be sunny disposition of the
writer, added to causes sucU as above, in
duced biui about that time to "smile. "
But seriou.ly. We defy any one or hi
friends to explain what idea is wishcJ to
b conveyed in the words quoted. We
even doubt if tbe Ihely (?) aud viv uiou- (?)
writer himself now thitthe ink has bo
come cold, and be, it is horoi, sober
can tell us, with all the skill be has at
tained in decypbering secret alphabets,
euigmus, &?., fostered, doubtless, by ex
perience in the organization once known
as tho "K. G. C," which, like Democracy,
is
"Xutolertd with the tbhgj that wer,"
can tell us, in plain Kogliah, just what bo
di ' - c ').'
kq most pass to ' new and
ci. beauties." The next outrage
upon common sent-e and tho art of writing
intelligibly, is perpetrated in the fourth
paragraph, und aller tbe following manner:
"On motion of u certain pill j edler who
bent himself for tha Legislature in 1811,"
Sic. iiQ. Here again wo are at a loss. The
writer fails to inform us on what day of
the month and at what place the "pill
pcdlcr" aforesaid "beat himself." Neith
er doc he tell us what kind of an instru
11: e nt wax used in inflicting thi punish
111 e 11 1. In writing descriptions of acci
dcuts, euiciden, itc, it in customary to give
all the particulars; but in thia ca-e, a
iicws-ioving public is left iu the dark aa
to one of the oddest things on record, viz:
a man beating himself for the gratification
and amui-cment of a Legislature! c hope
the writer will not serve ua tuch another
jade's tiick."
Again, we ask him why ho hasn't pro
duced the journul of the Legislature, and
shown the record of this remarkable pro
eccJing. If the s atcincnt is true and
what Demo:iat ver told anything that
was not? whbt Legislature would be rO un
graitful an to refuse to record an act done
for their rpecial diversion? Why, it would
be meannenü in a Dimucrutic Legislature,
and that's saying a good deal, when one
remembsrs that bodies of that description
uro not expected to bo "convocations of
the gods." Unices the author produce
"the papers," we are afraid that even a
Jmociat will think tho dose too "fishy"
to be pnlatabie.

It's simply an honest confession that it

the liuc of'their roads. This Jaw is not
made so much for the protection of stock
running at larga, as it is to protect bnman
life. We also find another statute law
which provides that all owners, lesccs or
assignees Tuaningor having chargo of any
Railroad in this State, who shall fail to
build and keep up a good and sufficient
fence along the lino of their roads, shall
be liable to the owner or owners of any
animals which may be killed or injured
by tbeir rolling stock, whether such in
jury result from carelessness or unavoid
able Occident. Only a nmall portion of
the V W, V. Kailroad has leeu fenced.
1 w re-ntat ihe last term of Com
mon I'lcns Vourt of Frunkliu Connty,
watchi, case ground through under tho
foieg'mg law. The action was first
brought before a Justice of the Peuce,
tried by a jury, and judgment found for
plaintilT fr $7, the value of one hog kill
ed by cars of W. W V. Kailroad. I ase
was taken up, or lather down, as the e
quel will ihovr, on appeal. The Railroad
attoruey resorted to all the tactics known
to the profession, such as filing frivolous !
demurrers, dilatory picas, ko , which is
ca'lcd in Court House special pleading,
but in justices' offices pettifogging. The
only difference is in the houe. This sys
tem of practice seemed to embaira the
plaintifl-; but with the aid of a gentleman
present w l-o "un Jeistood tho ropca" of ihe
Court House, he at length got hi ca-e in
Court. The plaintiff demanded a jury,
which emburrasscd the attorney for the
road, who jumped up very much excited;
suid he wanted a change cd venue; sat
down; was drawing up an affidavit to sweur
his case out of the County, when ihe
plaintiff said he had a good case and did
not like to follow so small a enso to on
other County, but would submit it to the
Court.' This teemed to pleaso the defen
dant. PlaiiitifTcallcd his witnesses and proved
that Ihe cars struck the hog, broke its
back, aud killed it; that it Was Ins proper
ty, and worth seven dollars; that the in
jury was done in Franklin County; that
ihe road was not fenced; that there was no
public crossing at the point where the hog
was killed. This same wittier Mated that
the Uailroad crosses tho tow-path of tho
Canal at that point. Next witness stated
thai the road forked below where the hog
was killed, main road running 011 tow-path
and twitch on the other bunk, all the way
along; 1.0 street, alley or road or any pub
lic crossing short of Ü50 yards from the
place whero the hog was found; that tho
road was not fenced. Next witness, who
was ihe plaintilT, drew a sketch of the
road, showing bow it branched below whete
the bog was struck, main truck rnnnii g up
West bank of tbe old Canal; side track on
KjsI bauk; no public crossing of any kind
short of -CU yards, which was a street
near tie Depot. Court atked this wit
noss whit was between tbe two Railroad
tracks. Witness answered, water; was old
Canal, now a mill race; that the road was
not fenced, ihis closed the case.
'J he Judge folded up what was supposed
t 1 the notes of evidence, and left tbe I
Couit House. Court ttood adjourned j
without form. Next morning he gave his :
decision, to wit: that the cars killed the j
bor. that it was the property of plaintiff.
and it was hard from him to lose it; but it
appeared there was a (.anal there, and the
io4 cio-seJ the tow-path near where tba
hog was killed., lie Would raise a judi
cial presumption that the Canal was a
highway, and the road crossed the tow -
path; that he kticw ' the Canal hid bng
since been abandoned as a Canal, but tho
plaintiff had failed to prove it abandoned.
Now it be could prcsime (he old Carta I
a highway and a public crossing, knowing
it waa entirely wathed iwsy more than
three years ago, could he not also presume
that it had been abmdjucd, when, it ap
pealed from the evidence of two witnesses
that a railroad was built on both its banks
snd a mill race occupied ila ted. running
all the way along. And bow could be
presume a publio crosoing near whete (be
injnry was dotie, when three witnrssca
testified before him lliat there was no pub
lie crowing vl'muy kind sbott of'üoU aid
from the place where the l og was killed.
But ttttngo as it Djrj spcar, all this ev
idence, which would have fully met hla
judicial 'resumption, is not lound io hi

juries? Are they loo honest, or is it too
xpenaivo to chalk all their hats? Free
pusses will do for members of the Legis
lature, or the few who administer the laws.
However that may be. tfier ihe defendant
had succeeded in getting bis case befote
tie Court, he seemed to lone all ititetesi
iu it. He reminded tue of a sleepy mem.
ber who waa iu (he habit of taking a uap
during sermon lime. On one occasion a
neighbor punched him; told biui to wake
up and listen to the sciruon. II half way
opened Ma cCHi sayiug, "Dou't disturb
tue; I um s.le; I am not afraid id' the
preacher; be can't say anything that will
hurt me." Tbe delet.dant did not try to
prove anything, not ecn that there'vtos
a publio crossing or nnthifg else to jus
tify ihe act. It seemed to be the nil
fashioned one tided game wiih him
-Heads, I win; tails, you lose."
Now the quesii'in may be asked, why
publish the proceed ing in thia cae? why

the amount exclusive of t-t is loo small

Harrison Correspondence.
Haukison, O., AritiL 18 1SC3.
Dear Editor, uWonders will never
cease." "Nemesis" has conceived, and
wonderful is tho prodigy that has been
brought forth. It certainly took super
human labor to produce such a well-de
veloped accumulation of slang. Unless
Nemesis'' is endowed with moiethati com.
mou capacity, (which, bv the way, haa hot
been shown,) it is not at all likely that an
other such an article will ever emanate
from his (or her) t en; becauso all the low.
groveling and vituperative powcia of bis
being must have been prostiated by ihe
uncommon draft which must necessarily
have been made upon ihem, iu order to
create such a heterogeneous mass of cor
ruption as came out in your paper of April
10th. ihe letter has a decidedly ettrmi.
natc tone; and if 1 would not be accu.-cd
of want of chivalry. 1 wouid assert that
"Nemesis" is, iu both senses of the woid,
one of the -Jt sex.
' I'oiu ihr 2 rfecl knotctedje vcilh ichich
he juaLt i f ti tiythii fj ptrttiiunig lo At
pi iic rtij," "Nemesis" ia led to belike
that "Aigus" must be very familiar with
tho manly sport, Vc. iow )0U clearly
see that -N meaia' constitutes
niniscn a
and if be
competent judge of such sport
wi.uld ho could tell of many a ''mill"
that
be has witnessed on IHoody Island.
He advocates that no ouc with common
scn&e would have expected to sen perfec
tion io a party of young amateurs. Ccr
tainly not! if they did, they were Badly
mistaken when they witnessed the at
tempts of the Clionians. 'ihat the actors
weie in the leatt diflident, I cannot etc.
On the contrary, there waa uu uncommon
show of pomposity maoilested by come, if
not all. I beg .cave to tell Nemesis"
that my ''fine cultivated tastu" tens mt
"shocked" at the ''apish uctioi.8 ami giim
aces;' it waa not a particle mote extreme
than I had anticipated. When 1 go t
see a collection of monkeys, 1 expect to
see uionkcy-like actions, and am never
thoched at it. And be alsoasks'why did
1 not volunteer to givo them a tew bints,"
&C 'Nemesis!'' when you go to a me
nagerie, do you spend your lime in trying
to civilize or tame the wild beasts exhibit
ed there? I don't, unless well paid for
my trouble. 1 leg. leave also tu decline
Iiis very kind invitation to board around;
for the very reason that unless 1 could
find brighter intellect to woik upon, and
more appreciation than is apparent in
him, it would not bo a very paying insti
tution, nor reflect much credit upon mc.
- He would pleasantly suggest the age of
: the oiuotutiou which 1 made use of, to il-
lustrate, viz: '-Give me liberty or give me
death." No orje attempted to pass that
for a new idea nor for an original ouc, as
will be observed by tbe quotation marks,
"Nemesis" must bo very dubious in re-
gard to the universal recognition of the
fact that (hat eutertainruent given by the
Clioniana was. a complete success, from the
jertiuacifj with wliib Le insists upon rc
pealing bis cp'tniorj. Ho commence J hi

The many fi iei.d- of M r. Julian will le
gratified to learn thai be has been re-nominated
iu his new District the Fourth
over very strong opposition. Theouly so
lution to this result is this: Tbu people
ate determined lo sustain our present Con
gtess iu their well-sutaiued lattlegaiu?t
Andy Johnson and the spirit of rebellion.
They dt not wish it lo be understood tkat
they arc shbM'.ed of Congress or its
and hence baVii not only io-uotuintied J u
liati and Shanks, but other Congressmen
iu whoso votes and acta they have placed
confidence. The entire West is clamorous
for The speedy removal of Andy Johnson,
and long for the day when bluff and hon
est old Hen Wade will take h a place.' In
unmistakable tones tbe people demand the
reconstruction of the States on the basis
prtseutid by Congress. They are becom
ing more and more radical every day.
Moncio Times.
From a card in another column it will
be seen that General Tom Rrowne has
withdrawn from the Congressional canvass
in the Ninth Dinirict, which tecures the
nomination of tlcneral Shanks. The card
proves (jentral Browne to be a true Re
publican and an Kotiorabl gentleman.
He is one of tho ablest and most eiTortive
speakers in the State, and will do aa good
service in the cau.e during tho coming
summer as any public man in tbe State.
