TUn "Do.1 \(nn%,n.l.molUna l.nifoKomi t0 postponed until to-morrow morning. The parties have gone home, and thore is as little material here for a sensational letter as in any other quiet village. ' The general expression of the citizens lt" here is in favor of the preservation of law v* aud order, and we were surprised to find n that the people here do not look like the ;d desperadoes they have been pictured. There is a very general complaint on tho part of those interviewed, that the pooa" pie of this portion of Wetzel county have JO been misrepresented?that while there ud are some lawless characters, that the ways of tho people are law-abiding, and that all tho talk about "calling out the military" e8 is perfect foolishness. Even those who 3.i aro accused of violations of the law, proes fess a perfect willingness to abide by .4 whatever punishment may be assessed . against them, and we are inclined to think rt' that your military need- not prepare for th active service heie just at present si.

The "Ked Men" of welzel, as originally m organized, were o( tho btwt men in the ed county, and urbanised for the purpose of lid enforcing laws that could not, or at least hid not been onforced by the proper , authorities. The lynching ot Jennings th and of Wallace was a blessing to the >rt county, and had the business stopped og here all would have been right. But men h not abovo suspicion themselves took ad, vantage of the terror inspired by the "i organization, and private spite and filthy iry malice instead of a desire for the public ks, were the actuating motives. Many ? ol the men who originally belonged to the organization withdrew from It, and of 0" those who remained many only quietly nd acquiesced in the work that waa being no done. It is safe to say that not one man In twenty In this county approves of tho action of the self constituted vigilante who have been disgracing tho county, and ou tike other hand atjeaat thejaamo proportiou are earnestly in favor of having the laws as rigidly enforced against those whose lawless autlons gave rise to an apparent on- necessity for the organUatlou. iaii The oliicera of tlie county express then)' . selves as ready, able and willing to enforce the laws and we are Inclined to think thai ula they will do so. 01 course there ia dangei lair that "bad blood" will be stirred up during l\cr Ike pendency oi the examinations but the I prewntprospecte are favorable for a peace nine ?iiu "?ii ? lion Occasional. r to ? ii i m m 1 ' i '-'tw Not the *fcr?ry SunjU**, , Hamusbukg, June 4.?The House o Representatives defeated the resolution ti 0xp?i W, V.

The following platform was adopted: Rewired, That the Democracy of Ohio a demand free and fair elections, and to that . end denounce all interference with elec- * tions by the military power; that the ex- . perience of this and other countries has N abundantly proved that the presence of troops at the polls is destructive of the freedom of elections and is incompatible with the existence of free institutions; 0 that the laws enacted by Congress, which tl under the pretense of regulating the man- ii ner of Congressional elections, interfere tl with the election of State ollicers, and p overthrow the laws of the States governing the choice of such officers are uncon- li stitutional, and for that reasou ought to be repealed; that they are also fnstru- c mentalities of fraud, force and corruption, t] by which the party in power uses the o money of the people to corrupt and thousands of irresponsible officers to harass a and coerce the voters, and especially by t< force and fraud to deprive our naturalized a citizens of the right to vote, and for these reasons also said laws ought to be immedi- c ately repealed. t /tooftwf, That impartial juries are essen- a tial to the administration of justice, and r thereby to the preservation of liberty; that p no man can Ihj secure in his person or pro- a perty when the juries are packed and con- p trolled by the government for despotic e and partisan purposes; that under the Fed- s eraljtiry laws now in existence juries may l< be and have been packed and controlled, L and the highest interests of justice and free * government require that these laws be changed, so as to secure fair, impartial and l( independent juries in the Federal Courts. c Jtoolccd, That the Kepublican minority in Congress by refusing to vote for supplies to maintain the Government unless the majority would agree to the use of troops at the polls, ana also to the maintainanceof the unconstitutional, corrupting, violent and unjust election laws aforesaid, and the President of the United States by his unprecedented use of the veto power in order to perpetuate said laws, and the use of armed men at the polls have shown a spirit of faction and a devotion to party success, instead of the welfare of the country and the preservation of tho United States Constitution and liberties, that demand the condemnation of the whole American people. Jtooloed, That l'resideut Haves, by his frequent interposition of the veto in order to defeat the legislation that was plainly constitutional and that in no way interfered with the independence of any other j department of the Government and had ! received tho most mature consideration of Congress, has shown an utter disregard for the considerations|and principles that induced tho insertion of the veto power in the Constitution and alikedisregardof tho wishes and welfare of the people. /too/wd, That we declare it as tho sense of the Democracy of Ohio that not a dollar should bo appropriated by Congress to pay soldiers, Marshals, Deputy Marshals or Supervisors of Elections to interfere 1 with or control elections. Ketavtc, mat tne euorts 01 me ttepuu- i lican party to open and keop alive the war ] feeling between the North and South are j to bo condemned by every lover of his < country. RaoliYtl, That we ro-aflirm the financial principles heretofore advocated by the Democratic party of Ohio; that the issue of monev in any form and the regulation I thereof being to the general govervinent | alone and ought not to be delegated or entrusted to individuals or .corporations; that wo therefore oppose the perpetuation of the present Natioual banking Bystem as a moans of control ovor the currency of tho countrv and demand tho gradual substitution of treasury notes for National bank notes, to be made recoivablo for all dues and a legal tender on an equality with coin, such Government issues to be regulated on principles established by legislation or organic law bo as to secure the greatest possible stability of value. itaioitwf, That after changing tho valua. tion of g)l property from the scate of paper 5 monoy, by wulcn the heavy burden of t debts now resting on the people were created, to tho formor levol of gold and > silver, tho ohanjjo then made in the metallic atitmlnrri itonlf hv thn ilnmnnAllift. . Hon o( silver was a monstrous fraud on tho people, cunningly devised In the Interest of the holders of bonds, that should be condemned as In violation of every principle of honest dealing and a covert | Wf*j))t the fundamental rights of property, and to therefore demand the full restoration of silver to Its original place as 1 a metal, the same as gold. t Rtnbxi, That the rapid incroaso of the ! intercut bearing debt of the Government s under the present administration ought to pipite the ppriou* apprehension of the peo pie. We demand that the further increase in the bonded debt in time oi peace be topped and It be putln procesaof extinction. Jtaolnd, That the attack made on the State Leglilaturo In the Republican platform Is wholly undeserved, and that the Legislature in Its arduous work of codifying the laws of the Stato, and that the reduction of fees and salaries of county officers and the passage of a law to protect tho ballot and prevent bribery at elections, deserve the commendation of the people of the Slate. Raolvnl, That it Is the duty of our government to maintain to its fullest extent the doctrine that a man may in good faith changohla habitation and become a cititen of any other country. We should protect in overy part of tho world all our naturalised citizens as we would our na:ive-born, and should resist all improper -'Inlitis upon them by government* to which they no longer owe allegiance. We iemand that existing treaties with all for ign governments be rigidly enforced, and hat early steps be taken to obtain from ho German empire a fuller recognition of he right of expatriation and of the rights if our naturalized citizens returning or laving property there, by a modification if lhl> traatv A*l?f Inn lintwann Ita Mr. J*rank llurd on bohalf of tho ninority of the Committee on Resolutions mbmitted the following additional resolu? ion: Jtoolwd, That we request the Demoiratic members of Congress not to vote any intrninrliitirma *n ant.

The following platform was adopted: The National Greenback Labor party of >hio in convention assembled, adopted llA fllllnwinc llofilarntinn nf nrtnailnlaa au a platform and go before the people, hereon, with the consciousness of thereby erforraing a sacred duty to our fellow imerican citizens as sovereigns of a free Republic. In the recognition and distribution of ivil and political rights and privileges tiere should be no favoritism on account f birth, color, creed or financial condition, The general government should issue an tnple volume of full legal tender currency d meet the business needs of the country nd to promptly pay all its debta. We recognize the deplorable comnierial and industrial condition of our counry as something appalling to contemplate, nd we unhesitatingly hold the old parties esponsible for the nefarious and ruinous ioIicv pursued, and point to their record a full and completo evidence to the peotie that it is folly to hope for relief from ither, and we unhesitatingly charge this uttering and degradation as "a result of the s^islation of the last quarter of a century teing tsuieiy in uie mieresi 01 cue monieu iristoerncyand corrupt corporations. The funding of the national debt into Dng time bonds, to be paid over and iver in the form of interest absorbing the vealth of the nation, making business trosperity an impossibility, reducing the aborer to a condition of semi-slavery, and endering the welfare of the nation subervient to the interests of the land-holdng class is an outrage so monstrous that ,ny political party that sanctions it is unworthy the support of intelligent and lonest men. W e are inllexibly opi?oscd o the issue by the Government of interst bearing bonds of any description, for my purpose whatever. The National banking system should be it once abolished; a tarilvamplysufllcient or the protection of American industries hould be maintained till a free financial ystem may have shown it to be unnecesary to tax labor for the support of capital. All internal revenue tax should be (lis- \ >enseu wun, anu a graduated income tax substituted. We demand the immediate calling in ind payment of all United States bonds in ull leipil tender money. [Great applause vlien this was read.] Wo demand an equalisation of the jounties for soldiers.

HOW NORTHERN OHIO FEELS Over Yesterday's Work at Columbus. IS Ewing to Be Beaten by Twenty-Five Thoueand Majority. Ci-?vei,asi>, June 4. Special lo the Intelligencer. The Democratic nominations at Columbus to-day fall like a very wet blanket on the party in Northern Ohio. The ticket arouses no enthusiasm whatever in any quarter, while in many places the candidate for Governor and the platform are openly cursed. The Republicans are jubilant over Ewing's nomination and their assured prospects of a magnificent victory this fall. Ewing is by far the easiest man to neat of all who were before the Convention.

Cincinnati, 0., June 4. 8p?UI to the IntelllKtnccr. The Enquirer will say tomorrow in its editorial: The Democratic Convention yesterday, nobly and with splendid and patriotic emphasis, met and robuked tbe infamous Kepublican attempt to wrap tbe bloody shirt around this Ohio canvass, and with it to encircle tbe spoils. The Ohio Democracy, tossing defiance back at the falsehood, put to shame the hypocritical Republican Convention of Iftflt wnelr and nffar a TTninn <u?l<Ku? U their right and a Union soldier in their left hand to the suffrages of Ohio. The Republican Convention, with its customary cant, found a place in the last resolution of its platform to Bpoak of the memory of our dead heroes and to protest against the expulsion of their living comrades from public offices, but it was not until the chief priie of the Convention had been refused to a soldier and given to a civilian who was at home increasing his gains during the w ar that the Republicans thought of giving a soldier an office. Then, in a spirit of narrowness, not to reward a soldier, but to defeat a Hebrew. General Hickcnlooner was nominated for the Lieutenant Governship. This was the high esteem in which the Republicans held "the memory of our dead heroes who gave their lives to save the Nation from destruction" and the claims of their living comrades. 1 The Democratic Convention yesterday laid its best laurel wreath on the head of ; a soldier and crowned this patriotic work ' by selecting another soldier to second him in the contest. No more eloquent or more unanswerable argument than this could be arrayed against the falsehood upon which Republicans have undertaken to conduct this canvass. It is deeds against words. Let the voters of Ohio judge between them. It is a patriotic ticket It is a people's ticket that the Convention in truth nominated gloriously. Its ticket offers hope to thopoor man; gives stagnant industry a gleam of encouragement; claims the right hand of fellowship with every solfl'nr nnil O'ill win 5m Onlnlmi' hosannas of the people.
