In the French Corps Leglslatif, July 1st,
It, Thiers, speaking on the budget, re
viewed the financial situation. The exist
ing embarrassments, he said, bad arisen
irom expenditure being voted without se
cure corresponding resources npon which ,
to fall back. .The position of political af
fairs had also exercised an. influence. Tbe '
army and navy estimates ought to be voted,
not for the purpose of Intervention, but in
order to show Germany that France would ".
not tolerate fresh usurpations. M. Thiers
reproached the committee with continued
want of foresight, alluding in an especial
manner to tbe 1 deficiency of 300.000,000f.
and the. floating debt of 962,000,000f. He
said tbe present financial management is
unexampled, but the true case ts tbe policy
that has been pursued. , " The Budget," he
continued, u is so deplorable, simply be- -cause
It contains the whole of your policy
In Italy; Germany,. Mexico, Paris, and at
the elections. Indeed, the Budget is noth
ing but a photograph of your policy, and,
therefore, it could only be altered, not by a
committee on the Budget, but by a com
mittee on tbe address replying to the speech
from the throne at the opening of each ses-,
sion, and telling the truth every year to the
bead of toe State. Tilling tbe truth may
shake governments, i but withholding it

Congressional Convention in the
7th District.
Congressional Convention for tbis District
will be held at London next Monday, July
27, and that tbe Delegates are to be chosen
in this county on next Saturday. They
are to be chosen in the Townships between
the hours of tour and seven o'clock, ex
cepting in the Townships of Blendon and
Sharon, where the polls will be open from
seven to nine o'clock in the evening. In
this city tbe polls will be open from six to
nine o'clock in the evening.
The gentlemen who are most prominent
before the District for nomination, are Col
Babsb, of tbis city, and John H. Thomas,
Esq., of Springfield. Col. Baber is well
known in tbis county for his ability as a
speaker andwriter. Mr. Thomas labors
under tbe . disadvantage of not being
generally known. He is reeommeuded
by toe Democracy of Clarke as a
firm, consistent Democrat, an educa-
cated lawyer, a successful business man,
an affable gentleman, whose life is without
reproach oi any kind, and is a public spir
ited citizen. His friends claim tor him
great, popularity in bis county, and they
proiess to believe that he would be from
two to three hundred votes stronger in
that county than any man who could be
Whether by authority or not we do not
know, John G. Thompson, E-q Hon
George L. Converse and Hon. E. F. Bing
ham are aljo ppoken of as gentlemen who
would be very acceptable nominees. By
their friends it is claimed that they have
the requisite ability, industry and popular
ity to make desirable candidates. Our hope
is, that the Delegates will carefully and im
partially consider the qualifications and
popularity of each of tbe gentlemen named,
and then nominate the one who gives the
surest evidence of being tbe strongest man.
A nomination harmoniously given to such
a man will make him a candidate whose
election will be sure. Let the nomination
be made with the understanding that the
District must be carried.
"Let Come—They Can's Make it
Too Thick for Me."
A gentleman the other evening illustra-
ed the popularity of the Greenback policy
by citing a circumstance that he witnessed
las 5 fall. A Badical stumper was holding
forth to an audience of about forty or fifty
at the West Front of the Capitol. " This
gentleman, by way of ascertaining what
he was talking about, walked over to the
meeting. ' The speaker had abused tbe
Democratic party as being guilty of such
crimes that ought to carry it to perdition
faster than lightning travels. Finally, to
clinch the enormities ot the Democratic
party, and in hopes bis audience would
cry out indignantly, "shame, shame," he
"Why they 'want to flood" the country
with money with paper money."
A Bepublican who had done his share in
applauding the speaker, cried out:
"Let it come they can't make it too
thick tor me."
The audience shouted, and the speaker
was completely taken aback. There is one
thing Bepublican editors and stumpers
will find exceedingly difficult to do to
frighten the people into the support of
Graxt and Colfax by asserting that it is
the intention of the Democracy to flood
the country with money. The people
have tbe idea that if you make money
plenty you make times good make work
plenty, pay prompt and good, and that it
is not so hard to pay taxes and get along
generally. They recollect j that, when
Greenbacks circulated extensively, and
when no other notes were in circulation!
money was abundant, ' and everybody
seemed to prosper finely; and the feeling
among the people is, that the Democracy
cannot make money too plenty for them.
Dissatisfied with Brick Pomeroy.
By turns the Bepublican press have great
disgust and great admiration tor Brick
Pomeroy. They had been berating him
sturdily umtil about the meeting of the
New York Convention. They had bestow
ed upon him about all the disparaging epi
thets they could flnd. All of ajudden
they begot for him great admiration. Ap
provingly, and with a band-rubbing grat
ification, they quoted from his paper. They
thought he would bolt the action of the
New York Convention Its Platform and
Its Nominees, and they were enthusiasti
cally happy.- His defection they thought
would be an invaluable help to their tot
tering and corrupt cause. Their slumbers,
in. consequence,; were serene and sweet
"Brick," after all, they were prepared to
aver, was a marvelously proper man. They
are not now as happy as they were.
"Brick" gives to the Platform and Nomi
nees of the New York Convention the ut
most support that he is capable of. And
the'Bepubliean editors who chucked him
under the chin only a few days ago, and
called bim a "bully good fellow," are now
very wroth at him. With one accord, they
say that bis support of that Platform and
those Nominees is ? the dirtiest thing yet"
that he has been guilty of. We commis-
serate their condition.
Ho, Attention Bondholders.
The Philadelphia Press publishes side by
side the financial planks in the Bepublican
aid Democratic platforms, and then calls
the attention of the Bondholders to it in
these words :
'Let tbe hundreds of thousands who
hold our national securities contrast the
bold and fearless language of tbe Bemib-
licans with the-baiting and half-hearted
invitation to repudiation of the Demo
Tola is saying, "look bow bold tbe Be
publican party is in its declarations that
tbe 6-20 Bonds shall be paid In coin," while
tbe declaration of the ' Democratic plat
form that these Bonds shall be paid in the
lawful money ot the United States (legal
tender) is a "halting and half-hearted invi
tation to repudiation of the Democrats."
There is in this no invocation to tbe tax
payers and toiling millions to compare
these planks of the respective parties and
see how much more the Bepublican Plat
form proposes to do for them than does the
Democratio Platform. The call is alone to
the Bondholders, the chosen wards of the
Bepublican party. It is true that the
Democratio Platform is the Tax-payers'
and Workingmen's Platform. Let them
look to it that tbe candidates standing on
this Platform are triumphant.
were a
call from Hon. French W. Tuornmll,
the invaluable Representative in the Ohio
Legislature from Coshocton county. He is
on tbe committee appointed to locate tbe
State Agricultural College, and is here to
meet the remainder of the committee. He
assured us that in his section of Coshocton
Seymour and Blair will poll every Demo
cratic vote. Although Mr. Pendleton was
their choice, they are nevertheless well
pleased with the nomination of Mr. Sey
mour. --
. The Journal editor is in deep affliction.
Stevens having openly declared that he
would sooner vote for Frank Blair, stand
ing, as he does, on a Greenback Platform
than for the Bepublican candidate who
stands on a coin-paying platform, the edi
tor of the Journal does not see how he is to
buy a breakfast at Frankfort or Vienna.')
His distress in consequence is pitiable.

sation, will be able to buy more meal, po

The Pennsylvania Invasion.
[From the Detroit Free Press.]
The Badical organs being determined to
fight out the coming campaign on issues
which they deceived the people about in
1864, are enlarging on the record of Gov.
Seymour during the war, but only in that
part of it involved in the two days riot in
New York city. This they distort an 3
misrepresent all else they suppress. The
following public documents show the part
taken by Gov. Seymour in the Gettysburg
campaign and bis official conduct during
the riot. It is needless to say that the Rad
icals dare not publish It as it completely
proves their falsehood and meanness :

In the matter of the New York riots. Mr.
Schumaker read the following proclama
tions ot Gov. Seymour, and made the re
marks with which he is credited: :
"To the people of the Citu of New York:
: "A riotous demonstration in your city,
originating in opposition to the conscrip
tion of soldiers for the military service of
tbe United states, nas swelled into vast
proportions, directing its fury against the
property and lives of peaceful citizens. I
know that many of those who have partic
ipated in these proceedings would not have
allowed themselves -to be carried to such
extremes of violence and of wrong, except
under an apprehension of injustice; but
such persons are reminded that the only
opposition to the conscription which can
be allowed is an appeal to trie courts.
"The right of every citizen to make such
an appeal will be maintained, and the de
cision of tbe courts must be respected and
obeyed by rulers and people alike. No
other course is consistent with the main
tenance of the laws, the peace and order of
tbe city, and the safety of its inhabitants
. "Riotous proceedings must and shall be
put down. Tbe laws of tbe State of New
York must be enforced, its peace and or
der maintained, and tbe lives and property
of all its citizens protected at any and ev
ery hazard. The rights of every citizen
will be properly guarded and delended by
the unlet Magistrate oi tne state.
"1 do therefore call upon all persons en
gaged in these riotous proceedings to re.
tire to their homes and employments, de
claring to them that unless they do so at
once 1 shall use all the power necessary to
restore tbe order aud peace of the city.
also call upon all well disposed persons, not
enrolled ior tne preservation oi order, to
pursue their ordinary avocations.
"Let all citizens stand firmly the constl-
tionai authorities, sustaining law and or
der in the city, and ready to answer any
such demand as circumstances may render
necessary for me to make upon their ser
vices ; and they may rely upon a rigid en
forcement of the laws of tbis State against
all who violate them.
"Whrreas. It is manifest that combina
tions for forcible resistance to the laws of
the State of the New lork, and the execu
tion of civil and criminal process, exist in
the city and county of New York, whereby
the peace and safety of the city and the
lives and property of its inhabitants are
endangered, and f t :
"Whereas, Tbe power of the said city
and county has been exerted, and is not
sufficient to enable the officers of tbe said
city and county to maintain tbe laws of
tne state and execute the legal process ol
its omcers: and -
"Whereas, Application bas been made
to me by the sheritt of the city and county
Of JNew xork to declare tbe said city and
county to be in a state ot insurrection; nuw.
"L, Horatio Seymour, Governor ot the
State ot New York, and commander-in-chief
of tbe forces of the same, do, in its
name and by its authority, issue this proc
lamation in accordance with the statute in
such cases made and provided, and do
hereby declare the city and county of New
York to be in a state of insurrection, and
give notice to all persons that the means
provided by the laws of this State for the
maintenance of law and order will be em
ployed to whatever degree may be neces
sary, and that all persons who shall, after
the publication of this proclamation, resist
or aid or assist in resisting any force order
ed out by the Governor to quell or suppress
such insurrection will render themselves
liable to the penalties prescribed by law.
In relation to tbe Governor's address to
the "rioters," about which so much is
sought to be made, the Hon. Mr. Schuma
ker, ot Kings, in the Legislature of the
State of New York, made the following
statement, which was not, because it could
not be, controverted : "
I was there in Broadway at the time, not
connected with the Metropolitan police,
but pasting up and down to sci to what
extent the riot had gone, and I saw the
crowd in the park and went over there and
saw Gov. Seymour addressing them, and I
tell gentlemen that a more orderly gather
ing ol peopH I never saw In the city of
New York in my life at any politi
cal meeting. I could see no rioters there.
They were evidently terror-stricken
men men who had wandered down from
different parts of the city to the neighbor
hood of tbe city hall for the purpose of see
ing when this bloodshed and riot was to
be stopped. I know something of men's
faces, and to me tbe faces of those men had
that appearance. They did not look, as the
gentleman here to-day said they did, like
returned soldiers and vagabonds : they
looked like men who had the anxiety of
fathers and brothers, like frightened citi
zens who bad gone to the City Hall
as the most natural place to find protec
tion. They heard Gov. Seymour. He ad
dressed them as "lriends." That, it ap
" pears, was a great o flense. It would seem
from what has been said here as if the Gov
ernor should have said: "You cursed scoun
drels, what are you doing here ?" Because
. there bad been a riot in New York the
Governor was to take it for granted that
the quiet men before him were rioters, on
the principle of the Irishman of Donnv
brook Fair, "wherever you see a head hit
it." But Governor Seymour took another
course. He quietly addressed those citizens,
and they quietly went away, and I defy
any gentleman to point out a single man of
that crowd who committed any violence
either before that time, at that lime, or af
ter that time.
The Publication of the Cleveland
Sunday News Suspended.
The publishers of the Cleveland Sunday
News announce tbe suspension of its pub
lication. An inadequate advertising pat
ronage, resulting chiefly from "the dullness
which pervades all branches of trade," is
the cause.
"Dullness of trade," that is the cry
throughout the entire country. That bas
been the cry for a couple of years. Instead ol
trade growing more lively and remunera
tive it has been growing duller and less prof
itable. All this while the Bepublican party
in Congress have acted on tbe presumption
that times were flush, for they have squan
dered the money wrung from the tax-payers
with a recklessness that is perfectly
amazing. If our people want a continu
ance of these dull times all they have to
do is to vote Grant and Colfax into office.
Coming Out From Among the
Foul Party.
was a ¬
cation Meeting at Greencastle, Ind, on
Saturday night week. At this meeting
Hon. John A.Matson made a speech, giv
ing his hearty support to Seymour and
Blair. Hitherto he has been a leading aud
influential Bepublican.
Ou the Thursday following there was a
Seymour and Blair Batlflcatlon Meeting
at Shelbyville, Indiana. And here one of
the speakers was W. H. Lamaster,- Esq.
He is a rising young lawyer of that city,
gentleman and a scholar, and hitherto
was the main hub in the Republican party
in that county. He was in the war, and
bears honorable scars.
l Dings lust now look very much as
though there would be a general stampede
from the Bepublican to tbe Democratic
