What tho Democrats noed now to
carry tho county, is good solid work
from now until October.
Prom all parts of the county comes
tho cheering news that the Democrats
are enthusiastic and united upon the
whole ticket. All tho Districts in
tho county, it is believed, except
three, will give Democratic majori
ties. Put the Democratic ticket
down far 500 majority, anyhow.

The Democratic Executive com
mittee at Washington has been re
ceiving words of ch^er from Ohio.
Up to the present time the Democrats
have not shown much disposition
to make an aggressive fight in Ohio
this fall. Indiana has chiefly en
grossed their attention, and the de
termination exists among the leaders
to carry that Stato by an ihctotmed
majority over 1876. But late reports
from Ohio are of such a hopeful char
acter that the question of giving the
Democracy there assistanco from the
outside is being discussed. Informa
tion recently received from Garfield's
district proves that the Republicans
there who demanded his retirement
in 1874 and 1876 because of his con
nection with CroditMobilier and tho
DeGolycr paving contract, will not
vote for him for President. Garfield's
majority fell from 20,935 in 1872, to
12,539 in 1874, a loss of 8,409. Hayes'
majority over Tilden in Ohio in 1876
was 7,516. Tho German vote of Cin

The political outlook, so far as the
Democratic party is concerncd, is
most favorable from all points that
wo hear from, and within tho past
week wo have heard from all points
of the compass. Tho North is alive
and active; the Wost and East are
laboring day and -night; the South
will be solid, rrhile tho enthusiasm
in all sections has not boen equalled
since 1852. The people are at work,
and are far in advanco of either the
politicians of tho committees. Tbcy
are tired of Radical misrule, oxtrav
agance and corruption, and they
(the people) are absolutely "howling"
for reform, rotrenchmont, and a
change of party control. They ap
parently shout with one voice that
twenty years is long onough for any
clique to control and administer
thoir uffnirs. They want a change,
and are determined to have one.?Ex.
Col. John W. Forney, one of the
ablest and bravest Republicans in
the United States is dealing sledge
hammer blows for Hancock, ^fcfter
Garfield's nomination, but before
that of Hancock, he said somo kind
things of Garfield. Rccontly in ex
plaining his reason for supporting
Hancock he said ho had not been in
I Washington fivo times in ten years
' nlid had but little knowledge of tho
corrupt career of the public men,
and nono of tho actions of Garfield.
He then goes on to say:
"What it iB all men know now,
' and if I revolted from it, it was be
jcauso I found it difforent from what
II honestly beliovodittobo. General
Garfield's accusors wero not Demo
crats. Ho was brought to the bar by
his own party, by tho Republican
press and the Republicans of his own
county, by the Republican commit
tees of hia own Congressional district,
by tho Republican Congress of which
ho was a member and by a Republi
can court of justice." Had this record
been known at Chicago General Gar
field could not have been nominated.
Full information enables me to speak
by the book when I assert that thero
was not a Republican leador of auy
note, equal to those on the ground
to slay and thoso who came to savo
Grant, that did not admit, on reflect

blunder and that that blunder was
worse than a crimo.

Since the Democrats have had con

Let your wholo attack be upon the

a party resorts to traducing private

would make an excellent scare-crow
in a corft-field next spring. He1
might quote General Logan's Egyp
tian talk-viz.: "If the-Lincoln

they would have to pass over the dead

Thore is in New York a post of the
"Grand Army of the Republic"
known as the Dahlgren Post. It
comprises soiiie 340 members. The
commander of of the Post admitted
to a reporter of one of the local pa
pers the other day that some 200 of
these intend to vote for Hancock,
although there are only 12 Democrats
in the entire 340. This exhibit
justifies the generally accepted belief
that a majority of even the Republi
can ex-Union soldiers will vote for
General Hancock. Tho Republicans
affect not to think this possible; but
tho Republicans are mistaken.
There are two amendments to tho
Constitution to be voted on at the
October election. As no political
question is involved in either of
them, a vote for or against them can
not be mado a political test. Many
Democrats will voto for ono or both
of tho amendments and many Repub
lican on tho opposite side. The
amendments were submitted to the
people by a Democratic Legislature;
but a discussion of their morits should
bo kept above party.

Washington, Aug. 21st, 18S0.
Washington was enlivened by a
Republican demonstration last night.
They called it a Grand Rally and
ratification meeting. Tho front of
the City Hall was decorated with
flags. Gas jets woro so arranged as
to lettor tho names of Garfield and
Arthur. Numerous other lights and
transparencies filled the immense
portico of the District Temple of jus
tico and cast their reflection on tho
back of Vinnie Rccm'a statuo of Lin
coln, toworing above tho vulgar dem
onstration, from which be seemed to
have forever turned away, and smi
ling benignantly towards the south
em part of tho union. Seeing only
a large number of nurses with baby
carriages, boys on velocipedes, with
a sprinkling of men and their wives,
I decided this was not the ratification
and walked westward in the direc
tion of the White House, where I saw
an economical display of fireworks
followed by a spiritless procession
headed by a band of music which
scorned to be all bass drums. I heard
one Republican apologize for tho
failure by the explanation that the
people were not fully educated yet
that later in tho campaign thoy
would have a more rousing rally. It
was indeed a very poor display, made
up largely of colored lazaroni, very
many of whom were more accustomed
to the chain gang procession than to
torch light.. parades. "Hell's Bot
torn," Frog Level and Crow Hill wero
largely represented, and formed
hard looking crowd that made mon
instinctively button their coats for
tho bettor security of their watches
Some of tho white porsons in lino
woro awaro that tho beauty of the
procession was marred by this disrep
utable auxiliary, and just after the
procession started, an effort was made
on Fifteenth street to givo tho "Crow
Hill Spider" Republican Club and
its horrible brass band the grand
bounce. This the processionists did
not caro to do themselves, but a po
lice officor waB culled upon to break
the news gently to the presiding offi
cer. Tho latter indignantly refus
to retire, explaining that his clubdid
not caro a continental about Garfield
and Arthur, but thoy came out and
hired a band to parade, and parado
thoy would or "bust." That settled
it, and they remained. Tho mana
gers staled later in the oveninE, when
called to account for the indignity,
that they did not object to having
tho club in line because of auy dis
credit that its presence would rofiect
upon the aflair; but because of the
failure to notify the marshal ut the
proper time of an intention to Par"(
ticipate. The matter still remains
unsettled. The procession, with tho
exception of tho unploapantness re
ferred to, moved quietly and reucbed
the City hall about 9 o'clock, where
a miscellaneous crowd had collected.
On the Grand Stand were numerous
orators, among Whom was the politi
cal father, who with Eliza Pinkston
procreated tho only fraudulent pres
ident, John Sherman, to whom we
are indebted for good crops. They
wero getting along pretty well with
their oratory when b sudden rain
camo up and compelled the boys and
negre&ses to swim out.

Letter From Governor Mathews.
The Democracy of New York city
recently held a grand Hancock and
English ratification meeting, at
which a number of eloquent speefches
were delivered and patriotic letters
from distinguished gentlemen from
diOoreat sections of the country wore
read. In response to pn invitation
to bti prosent, Govornor II. M. Math
ews, of Wost Virginia, wrote the fol
lowing timely and sensible letter:
White Sulphur Springs, t
W. Va., July 2G, 1880. J
Slews. John McKcon, Edward Cooper
and others, Co-mmittce:
Gentlemen?In consequence of my
absence from Wheeling, your letter
inviting mo to address a general meet
ing of the Democracy of tho city and
county of New York, at the Academy
of Music, on the 28th irist., did not
reach me until this morning. My
engagements are now such as to de
prive mo of the pleasure of being
present oh that occasion. I regret
that West Virginia will not be tnen
present, that you might learn from
some of her citizens with what grat
ification the Democracy here receiv
ed the announcement of tho action
of the Convention, And with how
great earnestness we join in the ap
proval of tho nomination of Hancock
and English. The cordial support
which will be given to this ticket by
the Democracy of tho South should
convince every fair-minded man of
tho North of tho loyalty of our sec
tion and of her sincere acceptance of
all the results of tho war. There are
somo misguided though honest men
of the North who have doubted the
sincerity of our professions, and who,
while realizing tho importance of
changing tho administration, have
hesitated for this reason to aid in re
turning tho Democratic Tparty to
The view which prevUils general
ly, almost universally, in the South,
may bo briefly stated. For years a
difference of opinion obtained be
tweon the two sections as to the prop
er construction of the Constitution.
All peaceable means of adjusting
this difference wero resorted to and
failed. Peace conferences and com
promise measures were alike unavail
ing, and at last, and of necessity, the
controversy was referred to the tri
bunal of arms. Aftor a war of four
years, illustrated by unsurpassed
gallantry and devotion on both sides,
the decision was rendered, and
against us. Wo accepted that decis
ion in perfect good faith. Tho doc
trine of secession was utterly over
thrown anc} was never again to bo
asserted. The institution of slavery
was destroyed forever, and all that
secession and slavery properly im
plied was gono. We gave our alle
giance fully and sincorely to tho
Constitution as it now is, and for
yeartf we havo desired td aid to the
extent of our ability to promote the
welfaro of our common country.
The test of Southern loyalty pre
scribed by the Republican party, and
which wo shall always rojoct, is not
an unquestionable devotion to tho
Constitution but a willingness to en
dorse evfir? Republican mcasuro
however it may be at vnria'nce with
the spirit and letter of tho fundamen
tal law. Wo believo that tho rule of
construction of the Constitution
heretofore insisted upon by tho De
mocracy at;o still tho true rules of its
construction, (hat tho principles of
government declared by the fathers,
viz: that the powers of government
shall bolimited by Constitutional bar
riers; that tlie men of cnch locality
shall be no privleged class, either
of individuals or corporations?are
still tho correct principles of free
government, and when applied to
the changed circumstances and con
ditions as thoy are produced by an
advanced civilization and increased
population that they are sufficient
for all time.
With very few, if any, exceptions
the people pf the North who were of
real service to the cause of the Union,
whether in councilor in the field, un
derstand tho sentiments and purposes
of the people. And if the men who
achieved tho victories of tho war
could have proscribed tho torms of
a restored Union we would long since
havo been in the enjoyment of a per
manent peace and fratei'nal feeling
throughout the land.
Tho action of the National Conven
tion in placing at the head of the
ticket tho soldier-statesman and
stainless gentleman, Winfield Scott
Hancock, has already accomplished
moro than seemed probablo a few
months sinco. It has harmonized
and united tho Democracy in all sec
tions of the country. It has inspired
tho patriotic masses with tho confi
dence that tho hour is almost at hand
when a candidate fairly clocted will
securo to thorn tho advantages of a
constitutional administration, and
when peace and reconciliation and
material prosperity will become real
ities to bo enjoyed by overy citizen
of this greut Republic.
The election of the Republican
ticket would bo only a prolongation
for four years of the llaycs dyuasty,
which is alike distasteful lo Repub
licans and Democrats, and be a per
[petuationof sectionalism which, in
the o]iii>iou of tho bpst men of the
Republican party as well as of all
Democrats, should now cease. The
election of Hancock and English, al
ready assured, tVill demonstrate the
sincerity of the South and hor devo
tion to the Union, that wo are in
i truth one people, under thp old flag
and forever united, It will
Keep all in safety, and the chairs bf Justice
supplied with worthy mou, plant love
Throng our largo teniples with tho shoiits
And not our streets with war.
In haste, very trulv yours,
H. M. Mathews.
Why The Mouth In SoHd.
% No intelligent voter can read the
figures presented below without
grasping the solution of tho problem
as to why the South is arrayed in sol
id phalanx against the methods of
the Republican party. That party
for years has upheld the carpetbag
governments in tho States formerly
in secession whilo they plundo'red an
already impoverished people, and
piled debt upon debt, until the whole
country was plunged into a great
financial panic. Even for venrs after
the people had arisen and voted the
carpetbaggers out of power, tho Re
publican party by moans of tho bay
onet nnd the returning boards kept
the thieves in high places of trust,
until tho South was almost entirely
catch up by the ravenous crew of
"statesmen" who thrived under
Grant's two administrations. These
figures represent the load of debt the
South is carrying uutil this day.
Do you wonder why tho South is sol
id tor, good and economical govern
ment? Then read:

The wheat crop of tho present
year, taking the aggregate yield
throughout tho United States, prom
ises to be unprecedently large. By
some the crop has beon estimated as
high as 550,000,000 bushels, but ac
cording to th% New York Tribune it
may be safely set down at not less
than from 4S0,000,000 to 490,000,000
bushels, or from 30,000,000 to 40,000,
""/hols in excess of the great
crop of 1879. If this estimate should
provo correct thero will remain a
surplus for export in excess of the re
verse hold back for seed and con
sumption of about 200,000,000 bush
els. How much of this will bo taken
up by the foreign demand cannot bo
known until the harvests abroad havo
