The Committee on Resolutions, who

adopted: .
First? That we learn with pain and
regret the announcement in the Radi
cal papers of the State of J . J. Jacob a?
an independent candidate for Governor
of this State in opposition to the regu
lar Democratic nominee; that we re
tard it as a cunningly devised scheme
Sf the Radical party to defeat the new
Constitution and destroy the Democratic
party; and that we feel it our duty to
use all honorable means to defeat the
said Jacob and thereby preserve the
integrity of the Democratic party.
Second? That we have every confi
dence in the honestv and fidelity of our
delegates in tbe National and State
Conventions and the nominations made
by them, and we hereby pledge the
Democracy of Ritchie county to their
cordial and hearty support, and that we
will use all honorable means to secure
their election and also tbe election of
tbe candidates nominated by this Con

Third? That the proceedings of this
Convention be published in the Parker

Three cheers were then proposed for
the National, State and County ticket,
which were given intones greatly to the
detriment of the plastering and loose
bricks in the old Court Hoase, to say
nothing of the annoyance to the heart

?Ms Heeling at Prantytown?
Speech by Hon. B. F. M?rUi-5o
body far Jacob.
Taylor County, July 15, 1872.
Editor* of the Register :
The Democrats of Taylor county held
a meeting at Pruntytown on Saturday,
the 13th of July for the purfose of
appointing delegates to the Senatorial
! Convention to be held at Phillippi on
the 18th inet., and also to appoint dele
gates to the Congressional Convention
whenever held. In consequence of it
having been announced that there would
be speeches made in favor of the pro
posed Constitution, there was a large
turn out not only of Democrats but
many leading Republicans of the
county. After the meeting was called
to order, the Hon. Benjamin F. Martin
addressed the meeting in a speech of
about two hours' length in support of
the proposed Constitution and in favor
the State ticket as nominated by the
Parkersburg Convention. Mr. Martin,
after his usual dignified style, discussed
the various changes and features of the
Constitution in a clear and forcible
manner and was listened to with pro
found respect and marked attention and
many of the Republican friends ad
mitted afterward that its features were
good, vastly superior to the one we now
have. Some ot them will support it,
and many more would, if they were
permitted to exercise their unbiased
judgment, free from party prejudices.
At the close of Mr. Martin's remarks,
be stated that he regarded Mr. Jacob
as being brought forward by the Re
publicans for Governor, urged by them
to become a candidate, for the purpose
of defeating the Constitution, distract
ing and disorganizing the Democratic
element in the State, so that at the
election in October they might be able
to elect a Republican Governor, and
aeain place the State under Radical
rule, and that this was their prime mo
tive in supporting him, as had already
been announced by some of their lead
ers. Mr. Martin stated that he had
gone to the Convention at Parkersburg
as the friend of Governor Jacob, and
intended to use all honorable means in
his power to have him nominated; but
Mr. Jacob having refused to allow his
name to go before that Convention, he
could do nothing for him, and that he
now felt aggrieved that he should turn
his back upon his friends who labored
earnestly to honor him with the posi
tion he now bold*, and that while he
liked Governor Jacob as a man, he
loved his party and its principles more,
and therefore would give his hearty
support to Mr. Camden and the entire
State ticket.
At our meeting there was present
about the Jacob influence of the county,
among all the Democratic party.consist
ing of perhaps a dozen men, some of
whom are good, honest Democrats who
have been mislead and decieved by the
Radical texts that the Convention was
packed, that Mr. Camden is a railroad
man, etc., etc. Some others among
them are Democrats only when they
are certain that the Democrats are in a
majority. The Democratic party
would do well to get rid of them alto
gether, but there seems to be no chance
of doing so unless they go where they
are not known, because they are so
well known here that the Radicals won't
take them in. After Mr. Martin con
cluded his remarks one of them rose
to say something in behalf of Governor
Jacob, "said that he bad been a Demo
crat all his life and longer that he had
been conceived a Democrat, and mow was
unwilling to be read a Radical because
he was for Jacob. Well, he was a
very small Democrat then, but he was
juet about as large a one then as he is
now, and did as much for the party.

lion. Daniel W. VoorheM.
The Evansville (Indiana) Courier,
published near the home of Hod. D. W
Voorheep, thus refers to the position of
that distinguished gentleman on the
Presidential question:
"It is due to this gentleman to say
that he expressed to his friends at Indi
anapolis, last week, his determination
to atiide the action of the Baltimore Con
vention, let that action be what it
might. At the same time he freely
spoke of the growing force of the Gree
ley movement, and if the Cincinnati
ticket should be endorsed at Baltimore
? as it certainly will be ? there will be
no more vigorous advocate of its elec
tion than Mr. Voorhees; and the great
influence he possesses with the class of
Democrats who have t-o determinedly
opposed the acceptanc of candidates of
any other than the Democratic faith
will enable bim to do much toward har
monizing public sentiment which is op
posed to the contiuance in power of the
Administration.
"It was perhaps, unfortunate for Mr
Voorhees that in his recent anti Greeley
speeches, he should not have plainly
stated that, with all his objection to the
philosopher of the Driburu he would
still prefere his election to another term
of the present encumbent. If he had
done this there wonld have been no
fault-finding on the part of the Demo
crats, and many harsh expressions
which have been indulged in would not
have been uttered. Mutual explana
tions would not have been necessitated.
But the attitude now assumed by Mr.
Voorhees is such that the friendly rela
tions between him and these Democrat*
who differ with bim in opinion will be
speedily restored.
The present is no time for bickering
in he Democratic ranks, and we are
glad to koow that Mr. Voorhees will
be a peacemaker.
j Says the Chicago Tribune : "The
! people of the Southern States would
like to enjoy something like that reas
suring assurance, so often beard of late,
to the effect that 'General Grant will
not interfere in the pending guberna
torial election of Pennsylvania.' '?
riGHTEHG THE TIGE*.
A "Telle*" Dh'i lxp?ri??ee.
From the Evansvllle (Ind.) Courier.]
A royal Bengal tiger, captured in the
wilds of Africa, by the greatest explorer
of modem times, was purchased by A. H.
Weber & Co., of this city, at a fabulous
price. Of course the gentlemen had no
particular use for the tiger, bo they re
moved his bide, and after drying it, had
it stuffed. They did this because a
tiger's hide, stuffed with hay, does not
eat near as much as one stuffed with
animate flesh, which constantly re'
quires nutritious fixings to allay the
gnawings of hunger. The "tiger that
is represented by a green cloth, deck of
cards, ivory chips (and a revolver in
the money "drawer) is also an expensive
luxury, and therefore it was but natural
that Messrs Weber & Co. should decide
upon a hay and hide tiger.
They have bad their animal in front
of their store on Main street for some
time, as a warning to people not to buy
hats without the cut of Weber's tiger
in the crown. Yesterday a "yaller
dog of immense proportions and back
woods verdancy was passing the store
and took offense at the tone of voice in
which the tiger looked at him. If
there is any one thing a country dog
dislikes more than anotner it is sarcasm,
and therefore it was perfectly natural
for that "yaller" dog to take offense at
Weber's tiger, for it has its lip curled
up all the time. The dog stopped as
soon as it understood the tiger's re
mark, and waited about three-quarters
of a second to give the wild beast an
opportuuitv of apologising. The wild
beast didn't change its tone, however,
and the dog "went for it." It was not
one of those timid "went fors" that so
plainly imply, "I won't, if you are go
ing to object," but a regular old-fash
ioned dog eat dog "went for."
Tiger, dog, hats and boxes tumbled
out iu the street, and formed a sort of
moving panorama. Thedogwas finally
fished out of the pile, and pacified with
assurances that the tiger didn't mean
anything? it was only "his way of
speaking."
Tricks Not all Vain? The Trout that
John Catches In Lake Tahoe? Iron
leal Cheating.
From a San Francisco Paper.l
A company of Chinese have been
engaged the present season in catching
mountain trout from Lake Tahoe, and
I have supplied a large proportion of the
dainty fish brought to this market.
Lately, however, the profits of second
dealers have been rendered precarious
in consequence of the tendency of
mountain trout to feed on such innu
tritious substances as scrap iron. The
railroad spikes, rail-clamps, etc., found
in the stomachs of these fish are of
modern pattern, precisely similar to
those used on the Central Pacific rail
read, and as the trout do not come
ashore in pursuit of 6uch diet, it is
presumed that the Chinese engaged in
their capture know some explanation
of the mystery. The fish sell at thirty
five cents per pound, and it is not
uncommon to find in some of the
specimens pieces of iron weighing as
much as the fish itself. Dealers in the
city are now compelled to make a
careful inspection of shipments from
| Lake Tahoe before crediting them at
current rates.
They Wheel m.
Since the commencement of the can?
vass the Radicals have taken great
pains to create the impression that they
I did not intend to run candidates of their
party for office. Their purpose to put
the Democrats off their guard and then
surprise them has, however, been "too
thin" not to be seen through. Daily
their design is developed. A few days
ago Judge Harrison announced himself
as a candidate for re-election. Now
Judge Loomis, of the Wood county
circuit (the most Radical political Judge
in the State, who went to Wheeling
and had the law requiring the lawyer's
test oath passed to sustaia his own de
cision), is announced not as a Radical,
but as an Independent candidate for re
election. In all parts of the State wher
ever the Radicals think Democratic dis
sention or any other weakness, general
or local, occasions the slightest hope of
their success, they follow the example
of Jacob' and thus announce their can
didacy. One by one they wheel into
line as if under the immediate direction
of the commander of the Grand Army
of the Repuplic. ? Clarksburg Sun.
Tub work of destroying the grea;
newspapers that helped to build up
the Republican party, but are now
inclined to kick against the dynasty
of Grant, goes bravely on. The New
York Iriluru, of a recent date, says:
"The administration organs are in
so bad a way that they eling wildly to
the smallest and most untrustworthy
straws of consolation. Among these
is the declaration, made with agonizing
gravity, that the TnLum is pining
away by inches for reason of seceding
subscribers. It seems sad to withdraw
the comfort and support which our suf
fering critics find in this statement, but
it must be done. The Trilunc happens
to be in the most robust and contented
condition imaginable. It do&en't pine
in the least, and is likely to be an
unconscionable time a dying. Indeed,
it has the most reasonable and proper
expectation of publishing slight funeral
notices of all the poor little gasping
journals that are predicting its decline.
"How can you support Horace Gree
ley, the lifelong opponent of the Demo
cratic party T' was the question pro
pounded to a Democratic voter by a
supporter of the great nepotist. The
Democrat replied : "Do you consider
Greeley honest V "Oh, yea,' answered
the other. "Do jou regard him as
capable?' "Certainly," answered the
! Grant man. "Well, then," said the
Democratic supporter of Horace, "if you
could vote in 1S68 for a drunken aod
incompetent Democrat, I think I e&n
vote in 1872 for a sober honea and
capable Republican. ' The Grant mas
subsided.
ItvAmM *ii.
Here is entire the New York Tribune'
Berlin letter, of which so much has been
said giving an account of General Sher
man's trouble there :
Berlix, June 9.
"General Sherman has just left Berlin
after a conspicuously brief visit, and
young Grant will leave today. The
General was very indignant at the lack
of attention which he experienced from
the Court, and no doubt will nurse
his wrath to keep it warm under the
impression that he has a good, honeet
grievance. He will sav with truth
that he went to call on Moltke, whose
rank corresponds with his own, on
the very day of his arrival; that1
Moltke did not return his visit for
three or four days; that Mr. Bancroft, 1
the American Envoy, notitied the :
Emperor's Aid, General Schwartzkop
pen, that Sherman would be happy to
pay his respects to the Emperor; that
Sherman called promptly on Schwartz* ;
enkoppen the day of his arrval and]
expressed a desire to see the Emperor; I
that he never pretended he had no i
uniform, though on this visit he was in
a civilian's drsss; and that to these
announcements Mr.|Bancroft receive ! a
reply the following day to the effect
that the Emperor had no objections to
receiving General Sherman. Mr. Ban
croft advised General Sherman not to |
accept the privilege on such terms, I
am told ; at all events, General Sher
man did not, but pleaded his engage- 1
men is. |
"The German side answers to the
statements of General Sherman that lie
had no right to ask an audience of the
Emperor cxcept in his character as
General, and in the uniform of his rank
(the etiquette of the Prussian Court
upou this subject is as old as the Mon
archy); that Sherman dined in uniform
at Mr. Bancroft's, the night Schwartz-!
koppen's answer was received, and
Schwartzkoppen was present and called
attention to the fact that Genera!
Sherman is the highest representative
in the field of the detriment of the
American Government which supplied
the enemies of Germany with arms
during the war of 187U-71 ; he is like
wise well known here for his pronounced
proclivities for France then and since,
and had, therefore, no right to expect
from this Government auy but purely
official civilities.
"This is the case on both sides, so
far as it is yet developed here to me. i
Among some of the Germans here the
impression seems to prevail that Mr.
Bancroft added to his note to the For
eign Office that Sherman was without!
any uniform and must do homage, if I
at all, in a citizen's dress. Under this
impression they lay the blame, 1 be- j
lieve, upon Bancroft for not knowing
how to bring h;s guest in relation with
the Court, and for having misrepre
sented the General's destitution in the
matter of the uniform. As far as I
can make out, the matter was bungled I
on our side and the Germaus were not
unwilling to have a good pretext. The
Emperor too, no doubt, was pleased
enough to escape the awkwardness of
an interview with a distinguished for
eign officer who only speaks English;
which the Einperor says lie himself
speak9 so badly that "not even an
American can understand him;" the
implication being that the Americans
speak English so Wily that they ought
to understand bad English if any one
does.
"Frederick Grant separated from
Sherman and Audenried at St. Feters
burg, and went to call upon his uncle
Cramer, the light of modern diplomacy
at Copenhagen. He arrived here only
the day before Sherman left. He dined
at Bancroft's with Sherman, but 1 think
I am able to say that he has received
no attention from any German. I pre
sume he has signified to Mr. Bancroft
that he did not wish any, and that he
made no calls. 1 am very glad of this,
for Grant, though an amiable fellow,
is not such a specimen of a Republican
Prince as his countrymen feel particu
lar pleasure in exhibiting at such a
Court as this, where people of his rank
are educated and accomplished to the
very limits of their capacity.''
If Bancroft is to blame, it is not be
cause he does not sufficiently admire
and praise the German Emp?ror and
his Chancellor and Generals, and that
svetem of government, which we believe
he has discovered resembles, in some
mysterious way, that of the United
States. The unpleasantness of Sher
man's call at Berlin is likely to remain
as great a mystery as the recall of
Baron Gerolt was, until the trouble wa-<
traced to Bancroft Davis, the mischief
maker.
If Governor Jacob ia a man of so
much notorious political integrity and
naturally carries a* an inseparable con
tingency the purity and immaculate
[ virtues ascribed to him by bis partisau
friends, why is it that sich an amount
of astonishment is made by wav of
* * i
letters addressed to him? What should .
suggest a turpuiency if all lhmg? are)
rite aria? well may we say here, if |
there is peace at home why should we
need arms abroad? Arrows are not
used by those of integrity. will be
seen by a passage quoted from the i
odes of Horace, and which we recog- j
nize as being of the best of doctrines.

assimilation arc essential to bodily vigor;
