With an air of proud eatisfactlon, the
Republican members of the Ohio Legisla
nri hifinrspd Secretary Stanton, unre-
ervedlr' anS unqualifiedly. In hini they
had bimndless faith. There was no guile

His patriotism was not pure. He could

would play into the hands of the '-Copper-

combed Rebels, who would be exceeding
ly nffetieive to the polished "WAdr, the

The statement detailing the Cabinet dls
cnsslon'oii the Reconstruction committee's
disfranchisement amendment, Is verlfled.
Tt Is stated that the report, before it was
given ti the reporter of the Associated
Press for publication, was approved by ev
ery member of the Cabinet. It appears
unquestionable, then, that Mr. Stanton
Btandsby the President, in his disagreement
with the Radicals, and that the Cabinet Is
much more iu accord with the President
than the country generally believed. With
truth it may be said that Mr. Stanton is
not likely to dignify any caue very much ;
b it his identification thus openly with the
President is an Indication .that ho looks
upon the "policy" of the Radicals as calcu
lated to overwhelm the HepuDlican party
with ineffable odium. Otherwise, it Is not
probable that he would abandon them. He
lias noticed the beating of the public pulse
through the recent election. It presages
the dissolution of the Republican party.
Death of Hon. William Johnston.
Hon. William Johnston. Representa
tlve in the last Congress from the Eighth
Ohio District, died at his home in Manslield,
on Tuesday morning, May 1st, and was In
terred in the beautiful Cemetery of that
place, on Thursday afternoon, May 3d. The
Shield and Banner, iu the course of its ar
ticle announcing his death, says :
M He contracted a cold while addressing
the people in the political campaign of 1804,
which serioualy ati'eeted his bronchial tubes,
and was too unwell to return to Congress
till after the holidays, in January, 1S05. It
hnlni' the shore session, he remained till the
4th of March ; aud by the urgent advice of
his friends spent the greater panoi nst
Summer, at the Danville Water Cure Es
tablishment, in the State of New York,
which greatly benefitted him ; returning
home, and attending to some important law
cases, his couifh became more troublesome,
and eventually pulmonary consumption
fastened upou'his lungs thus ending the
brilliant career of one of our most talented
members of the Bar, whose bright star was
In the asnendaut, and whose future prom
ised a still greater eminence as a Lawyer
and Statesman. He leaves a large family,
to whom he was most tenderly devoted, and
a wife who was unceasing in ministering to
his every want. May Heaven soothe her
We can scarce afford to lose such men as
Mr. Johnston at this time not, certainly,
without recording the loss as a public ca
lamity; and the poignant sorrow of that
gacred inner circle his own loved and de
voted family where his loss will be most
keenly felt, we may not interrupt by any
poor words of consolation that we could
give utterance to. We can but tender them
our sorrowing sympathy in this hour of
bereavement and affliction ; and invoke for
them the consolations that come from
The People Proscribing for Opinion's
Indignation is lndn'ged in against the
President by Radicals, because he removea
ofllce-holders for not concurring with him
In his political views. The people through
out the country are giving justification for
such removals by voting Republicans out
of office and voting Democrats in their
planes. This is becoming frequent. An
other instance of this kind occurred in the
city of Anderson, in Indiana, on the 1st
lustant, . where they elected the entire
Democratic ticket by majorities ranging
Irom five to fifty. Heretofore Anderson
was a Republican stronghold.
"Can We Bear More Debt?"
This question is asked by a leading Re
publican journal. The wholesale plunder
ing the country has been subiected toby
Republican officials, of one sort and anoth
er, during the last five years, and the leg
islation of this Congress that has a tendency
to protract the disordered state of the coun
try would seem to indicate that the Re
publican politicians think we can bear any
amount of debt.
Vast Deal of Comment.
The Cabinet discussion of the Recon
struction committee's "policy" furnished
au item for very general comment in Wash
ington political circles on the 2d Inst. Mr.
Stanton, in bis newly assigned position of
supporter and applauderof the President,
wag the universal theme. It don't add to
the happiness of the Radicals a particle.
Will they Notice this Touching
With particular pains every utterance of
a Southern journalist, speaker or lady,
that can be distorted to the prejudice of the
Southern people, is retailed by Republican
journalists. . Will they be as quick to lay
the fact before their readers that on the 26th
of Aprir the ladies ot Macon, Georgia, dec
orated the graves of the deceased Federal
and Confederate soldiers that were burled
at the old cemetary la Macon? . The graves
were adorned by them indiscriminately.
A majority of the Cabinet are in favor
of the reconstruction report. Morning

The Tenth Congressional District.
The Putnam County Sentinel of the 23th of
April contains an article oh "the Congres
sional Campaign" in the Tenth District
iwhloh may be regarded as hftvlng consilium
able significance. It thinks that AshlkV
will again secure thq Radlcf'i Wmtnatiofr,
being the best manager Pn that side; and
suggests that Hon. W. D Hill, of the Ohio
House of Representatives' from Dellance,
b made the Democratic candidate againat
lilm. We make the following extract from
the SentineVt article :
"For our sralns and improved prospects in
the Western part of the District, the IVm
Of jatlc puny Is under obligations to Hon.
W. D. Hill, of Defiance, perhaps more than
to any other one man : and there isagrow
lng disposition on the part or thinking infill
in our Dartv to enlarge the field of his la
bors by making him our standard-bearer in
tlie comiiiir (loniressionHl camoahrn.
"Without intending any dinparagemeutof
other members of our remarkably taienteu
representation in the State Legislature, Inst
winter, we only express current opinion
when we tav. that no Democrat in either
house won a finer reputation for tact, judg
ment, firmness of principle and strength of
character, and no one exceiieu mui as a
readv. Rkillf ul and eloaueut debater. On
the stump, before the people, Mr. Hill would
furnish 'Colorado Jim' abundantly with
the kind of opposition he has long needed,
and in Congress he would represent the
neonle of the Northwest District as we De
lieve an honest majority of them have long
" It Is proper for us to'say, that we make
public these suggestions without ever hav
ing heard that Mr. Hill io?ires or wouiu
even accept a nomination for Congress."
We take great pleasure in indorsing what
the Sentinel says of the ability and efficiency
of Mr. Hill as a legislator; and we know
of no one In the District who is more elo
quent and effective before the people
Should he be nominated and elected, he
would make a most creditable Congress'
man such an one as the Tenth District
ought to have; but it is notour province to
express a preference as between Democrats
who may be candidates for nomination
that belongs to our friends In the District,
who will doubtless make a wise selection
from among their many able and distin
guished publio men. They will elect the
nominee, whoever he may be.
The Tenth Congressional District. Capt. W. H. Gill.
Captain William II. Gill, a very worthy
gentleman, and who for the past live years
has acted as Military Store Keeper at this
locality, has. at his own request, been re
lievrd, and turned over the Government
property, etc., to Captain Hull. Captain
Gill, in his retirement, takes with him the
kind wishes of a host of friends and ac
quaintances for his future prosperity in
whatever business lie may ciuuarK, wnue
all will acknowledge with pleasure his ef
ficiency as a public officer and his worth as
a private irentlcman. Cincinnati National
Capt. Gjll will be remembered as an
efficient Democratic Editor in years agone.
lie was for a t'nie the editor of the Guern
sey Jeffersonian ; afterwards he edited a
paper in Noble county; and when he was
appointed Military Store Keeper by Presi
dent Blcbanan, he had just retired from
the Xtw Lisbon Patriot. We believe lie
was in Kansas in the discharge of his offi
cial duties until the late war broke out,
when he was transferred to Cincinnati. He
has our best wishes for future success.
Birds of a Feather.
The Radical politicians seem to be all of
a piece, wherever they are louud. Luckily
there are some honest men among them, and
they serve to reveal the doings ot the ma
jority. One of these rare birds, some days
ago, unuertonK 10 ventilate me uiungs oi
his party in the Legislature of Pennsylva
nia. Alluding to the extravagance of the
lower branch of that body, he said :
There were nineteen posters and folders
receiving $6.50 each per day. 1 he work
done by these nineteen men could be ac
complished by three or four boys.
One man presented a bill amounting to $4
400. The Auditor General thought the
charge enormous, and cut it down $S00.
The person presenting the bill did notcom-
rtlain, but gave as an excuse ior nis exorbi
tant charge, that he was to divide the prof
its with the Superintendent Jof Public
That will answer for a sample even of
Missouri Radicalism. But this Pennsylva
nia Legislature went further iu imitating
ours. The last days of its existence were
signalized by raising the salaries of most of
the officers in the State. The Governor's
was raised to $5,000, Judges' to $3,500. $4,
600 and $5,000. They Increased the pay of
all the county officers, and linally theyvoted
themselves $300 apiece. The fellows knew

Accounts from Louisiana report the
killing of large numbers of horses and
mules in the northern part of the
State by buffalo gnats. One planta
tion lost thirty-eight mules and horses in
one night, another twenty-five, and others
from tllteen to twenty each. The buffalo

Disorderly Conduct on the Part of
During the past few days there have been
mustered out, near Louisville, somo 1,200

thrown into our city to act and do as they

the police court of yesterday, there being
no less than twenty or thirty eases present

loaded with balls, in the street, regardless
of the lives of the parsers by. To go to
work and enumerate the vnrioiis'ontrages
on the part of negro soldiers would occupy
more space and tune than we wisn to uevoi.v

may state that there are certain parties In
the city who will sell liuuor to these ne-

SUMMARY OF SALES.
The City Council—The Commercial's
The Democratic Councilmen who first
bolted, and then sent a note expressing
themselves dissatisfied as to the election ol
Mr. Coinsti ck as President of the Council
now express a willingness to accept the sit
uation H allowed a share Hi tne distribu
tion of citv offices. This the Linonu-ts re
fuse to concede as a condition precedent of
a return oi the delinquents to duty.
This is from the Columbus correspondent
of the Cincinnati Commercial. The Deni
ocratic Councilmen never bolted they only
efuscd to rccoguize the preteuded election
of Mr. Comstock, and they still refuse to
recognize him as President; and If he shall
ever become President of the Columbus
City Council, he will have to be legally
elected to that position. We know of no
Democratic Councilman who is at all dis
posed to back down, and dignify the farce
by which Mr. Comstock was put into the
Chair of the Council as a legal election;
ai d if any one should manifest such a dis
position, he would probably find a rougli
and stormy time among the people who
elected him. The citizens of this city are
abundantly able to compose their municipal
difficulties, without the impertinent inter
meddling of an office-holder who resides iu
Cleveland, and has no Interests here.

prising and accommodating firm of Messrs.

as they keep the best articles in their line,

the market, and often below the prices de
manded by many other dealers. We com
mend them to the patronage of the people
of the city and country. We say to our
readers, call and see how neatly and pleas
antly this establishment Is fitted up. The
sight ltselt will well repay a visit. Upon
inquiry you will find another great induce
ment to call there often, and that is, in the
excellent quality and cheapness of the

To-morrow (Saturday) morning this
mammoth establishment will make its en

with its richly ornamented cages, and co
lossal golden chariot. The great tent will
be open both in the afternoon and evening
for the exhibition of a collection of living
wonders, such as are seldom seen. In ad
dition, there will be a variety ot pleasing
performances, by trick ponies, trained mon
keys, educated mules and the great per

vis will enter a den of untamed lions and
tigers. The Giraffe and other curious and
wonderful specimens of the animal creation
will be on exhibition. This menagerie has
