- -that the: preaeut year is ti witness an

With ' much Interest: 'a. circumstantial

for having SO nearly taken your life.' 1 1
is safe to say every man in the South
who rejoiced ovfer the attempt to murder
you. was afterwards found iii rebel con-
sniracv to murder the nation-. ' It is still
safe to say that every one of them "who
survives, is to-day your iriiow lanorer
in support of Horace Greeley. 1 In 1850
he would Indeed have hoop a rash proph
et who predicted vour fast "aUianoe six
teen vears after' with 3Iessrs. 'Toombs
and Davis in efforts to reinstate their
own party in power. : In all '. the start.
ling- mutations of American politics,
nothing so marvelous has ever occurred
as the fellowship of Jtobert ' Toombs,
.Teffersoh Davis and Charles Sumner, in
a joint effort to drive 'the - Republican
party from power,' and hand over'- the
government to the ' practical rontrol ' of
those who so recently sought to' .destroy
it. ; It is of no avail for-vou'to take ref
uge ' behind the Republican '' reconl ot
Hbrace-Greeley. Conceding for;tiie sake
of argument (as I do not in fact believe)
that Horace Greeley would' remain firm
in his Republican principles, he 'would
be powerless against the Congress' thaj,
would come into power with liini in tb
event of his election,' ' We have bad a
recent and striking illustration. ' in the
case of 'Andrew Johnson, of the inability
of the President to enforce his policy or
even ' his measures against the will of
Congress; ' What more power' would
there be in Horace Greeley to enforce
tlie Republican policy against a Demo
cratic Congress than there was In An
drew Johnson to enforce : a- Dcmoera'ic
policy against a Republican Congress.
And besides Horace Greeley has already,'
in his letter of acceptance, taken ground
practically against the Republlciiu 'doc
trine so often enforced by yourself, pf tho
duty of the National Government to e
tection of life, "person and property. Ii

say that the perpetuation of the present
policy of the government iot for-the
advantage of the coiintry,f and tliat it
will not" tend to establish its former

interests of any class of citizens. . No
personal feeling of any form or charac

view of general principles and public
interest alone that I am led to this con
clusion. The uniting of masses of peo

support of the grand result of the war is
indispensibleto a permanant establish
ment of. the general recognition of those
results. It can beseoured by -, no other
means. We shall all be forced to the
conclusion sooner or later. This united
action upon this basis has been the hope
of life. I fervently desired it during the

course which neither my judgment nor
toy heart approves. It grieves me most
deeply to separate niyselt in thought or
in act from any of these with whom I
have been so long associated, and to
whom I am so greatly indebted but, I
believe the result will justify my action,'
give to the counrty that peace and pros
perity, which is the object of all our la

was won by the sacrifice of so many
valued lives. Accept the assurances of

rHE Jaurual, witli" the number . for July
X 13, enters upon its Second Volume with the
highest prospects for' the future.' . .Tliroualiout
the year just past it has endeavored tofnftll, and
has,fulilled the promises contained In its original
prospectus, and its aim Uf present an elegant
miscellany of pure and . pleasant literature has
been so far carried out as was possible in view
of the many obstacles necessarily incident to the
first year of publication.
As set forth on its title page It has been devo
ted to Literature,' Science, Agriculture and
General Home and Foreign news and in the fu
tare the aim of its editor and proprietor will be
to maintain its present high reputation iu these
several departments..
Uo pains or expense have ever been spared to
make the Journal the best paper published in
this section of the State, and for the year just
commencing no otlier or better promise could
De asKed than that furnished by iu past record,
Xew attractions arc constantly being .prepared
Ibrits reader; and none will dispute the asser
tion that its enterprise and energy have already
won for it a foremost place in the ranks of co-
temiioraneous publications. By Its influence the
newspapers of this section have been driven into
exnrtion never before made and while the pa
per here are now a pride to eVcry citizen it
ought not to be forgotten that their marked im
provement has been made within the year last
past-or in other words since the establishment
of the Jaurual.
SPECIAL REASONS
Which cannot fail to oommend the Journal
to every class of the reading public.
Firsts Because it is the lararest paper ever
published in this county, and because it fur
nishes each week nearly three column
are read luff than all the ether pa
era couaatued. , ,
Secou. Because it has a- lartfer list oC
contributors than any , other paper in
Northern Ohio. , ,,. ,
TbiraV. Because it is in every seusoof ihe
.' word, -a live paper," "for live people."
Faurtn. Because it.is, in the broadest sense,
: rair and independent, iiiwu all sultjects, w lieih
er Social, Beligiou or J'olixioal : , , ,
'if In. Because its articles are all to tliepoiut
.. and its columns are not filled -with long and
prosy essays devoid of all interest.
Sixth. Because . it gainers the news troin all
. quarters cf the world, by telegraph and
' through its own special correspondents and re.
porters, and condenses it into such brief shape
as to present a reliable mirrur of all that is go-.
ing on is this and other countries., . , , .
Seventh. Becausv , its Marked, Reports of
Stock, Grain, Groceries, and Agricultural pro
ducts, of homcind foreign markets are always
reliable.
Eighth. Because it is a paper for the Home
.Circle always having something, for the
young folks, as well as the old folks; some
. thing for. the humorous as well as the though t
. fill; something for the gentlemen as well as
the ladies; in fact, something for nil tastes.

attractive specialties wiiich wjUUc brought out
