Work, Work, Work!
. Next Tuesday, October 13, the State elec
tions in Ohio, Indiana and Pennsylvania
take place. , We would urge those of our
readers in these States to unremitted work
in behalf of the Democratic Ticket from
this on until the evening of the election.
See your lukewarm Democratic neighbors,
if you have any, and impress upon them
the necessity ot voting the Democratic -Ticket,
to the end that there may be refor
mation in the Oovernmant.
See your Republican neighbors, and en
deavor to Jsduce them to vote the Demo
cratic Ticket. Call their attention to the
fact that, oppressive as taxation is, the Pub
lic Dbt is being increased, month by
month that the present Reconstruction '
policy, which has for its object the subordi-
- nation of the White race to the Negro
race in the South, costs the people of the
North two hundred millions a year; that
the Republican party is committed to the
payment of all the Bonds in coin, contrary
to the law authorizing their issue, and to
the great injury of the people ; that the
, Democratic party is committed to their
payment according to contract, in Green
backs, whereby the taxes of the people
c will be lessened and money made sufficient
ly plenty to give to the country a healthy
prosperlfcj 'r that the Republican leaders
denounce the just proposition that money
invested in Bonds and drawing regularly
big interest should be taxed for all pur
poses as other capital is taxed, as repudia
tion and an attempt to violate the faith of
tbe Government; that .they do not
appear to take into account the
interests of the mass of the people;
that corruption has boldly and au
daciously pillaged the Government; that
the Republican party in Congress legisla
te J outside of and above the Constitution,
through motives of hate, and through tbe
supposition tb at the people would sustain
them in unrighteousness; that a change
cannot possibly make matters worse ; that
a change should be made, as in the nature
ot things there will be an improvement;
that if there is no change, the Republican
- leaders will feel authorized to go on with ,
their revolutionary schemes and continue
' theif plundering and the oppression of the
people through- Taxation. ' ; ..
-, Energetic work, from now until the elec
tion, by every Democrat in Ohio, Indiana
and Pennsylvania, will undoubtedly secure
. a majority for the Democratic State Tick-
ets therein. The hopesof a restored Union
V a maintained Constitution, the reduction ot
' ' the expenditures of the Government, and
-with their reduction, the reduction of the
taxes, should certainly stimulate every
Democrat to this work. What are a few
days' work as compared with the great
blessings that will flow from Democratic
Democratic Meeting at New Holland.
There was a 'Democratic barbecue and
mass meeting held at New Holland on
Saturday last. It was the first Democratic
day meeting that has been held in that Re
publican quarter for the last fifteen or
twenty years. The crowd in attendance
was estimated at not less than five thousand.
Speeches were made by Judge Bbiggs and
Dr. Gbiswold. "'

Gen. Blair in Columbus—His Reception
—An Impromptu Meeting
and Speech.
The arrival of Gen. Francis P. Blair in
this city, when generally known, created
an Intense desire to see the man whose
courage had been the constant theme of
praise, and who has been more abused and
misrepresented by-Radical editors and ora
tors thau any other man in the Republic.
During the morning of yesterday he was
visited at tbe Nell House by citizens of all
politics aud conditions. At 10 o'clock the
gun squad of the White Boys in Blue gave
him a salute with their cannon, and Hem
mersbach's Band, accompanied by an es
cort of the White Boys in Blue, gave him
a serenade.
Accompanied by a large body of citizen
Gen. Blair repaired to tbe West Front of
the State House, where be was introduced
to the crowd by E. T. Bingham, Eq., as
the next Vice President of the United
Gen. Blair, returned thanks for the klr.d
and unexpected and cordial reception he
had met from the citiz ns of the capital
eity of Ohio a compliment he could not
take as personal to himself, but to the great
party of tbe nation of which he was proud
to be a member, and of whose great prln
ciples of civil liberty he was a representa
tive man, being placed on the ticket as one
of the standard bearers in the great con
test. Because ot , their devotion to these
principles, which alone could save the Re
public, and which brought this vast masg
of citizens together, Gen. Blair thanked
them more than II the ' people had been
drawn together .to do him personal honor,
During tbe past few weeks, he said, he
had been in different StateB, had visited and
mingled with the voters .of . Pennsylvania
and Indiana, and these States, be said
would vote to swell the Democratic major
ity. And Ohio would eo with them-Ohlo
would vote the Democratic Ticket, and aid
in the election of the Democratio nomi
Everywhere be had traveled, he found
the same spirit prevailing. The people
were aroused and were enthusiastic. A
Democratic meeting, - largely attended
could be gathered almost in the time con;
sumed in dropping a hai, while, even in
their strong holds, it required time and
money to get up a moderate sized Radical
He bad no inclination, even if he had the
time, to address his fellow citizens on the
important topics of the day. He was ex
hausted with speaking, and the toil of trav
el and consequent loss ot needful rest. Yet
he would beg the indulgence of the crowd
if be defended himself from a charge that
had been mug from one extent of the
Union to the other.a That charge was that
he (Gen. Blair) was a Revolutionist that
he wlshed'agaln to light the embers of war
to incite another rebellion. The late re
bellion, a causeless one, as he conceived, had
met bis decided opposition. To aid in put
ting it down, he had fought during the
whole war, and after perilling hia life and
injuring his health in the service of his
country battling against life-long friends,
the charge that Frank Blair is a Revolu
tionist, and would again open up tbe rebel
lion, coming as it did from stay-at-home
patriots, was one that he felt was as unjust
as it was uncalled for. That charge
was predicated upon a letter he had
written before he was nominated to
the second place on the Democratic Tick
et. In that, letter he characterized
the, so called, Reconstruction measures of
the Radical Congress, as without warrant
of Constitutional law, and hence null and
void, and of no binding effect. The Su
preme Court bad decided a portion of these
measures unconstitutional, and that Court
under the Constitution, was the judge of
infraction by Congress, as well as the other
Departments of Government, of the Con
stitution, and the decision of this high
judicial tribunal settled the question be
yond appeal. This made it the duty of
the President, who was sworn to defend
the Constitution, to disobey these uncon
stitutional acts, and he. Gen. Blair, had so
expressed himself in this letter.
For doiug tbi?, the Radicals who sat at
their ease in their cushioned chairs in Con
gress, while he (General Blair), in compa
ny with his brave associates, the White
Boys in Blue, were periling their lives to
put down a rebellion against the Constitu
tion, now charge him with seeking to again
light the fires ot civil war. It is the old
fable of the wolf and the lamb, which
you have all read. The wolf was drinking,
and it accused the lamb, which was also
drinking lower down tbe stream, ot mud
dying the water that the wolf had to drink,
and on this charge, which in the very na
ture ot the case could not be true, the woll
tore tbe lamb to pieces. The Radicals make
war upon the Constitution and trample Its
several provisions in the dust, and because
the Democracy wish to lift it from the dust
in which it has been trampled, to bear it
aloft, and to save it from further dishonor,
and the Union of the States from Radical
disruption, they ate charged with being
revolutionary, and he (General Blair)
with exciting rebellion. No charge could
be lurther from the truth, none more false.
The Radicals are the only rebels now left,
because they are the only men who are in
rebellion against the Constitution.
What are these Reconstruction acts?
They supplanted civil Government in ten
States of the Union, and substituted mili
tary despotism in those States in the face
and in defiance of the declaration of the
Constitution, that the military was always
to be subordinate to the civil .power. Is
that policy of the Reconstruction acts con
stitutional ? Am I, said General Blair, a
revolutionist because I say the military was
always to be subordinate to the civil power,
or are those men the revolutionists who
have overthrown that portion of our Con
stitution and made the military supreme
in one-third of the States la this Union ?
The Constitution declares that every vava
charged with an offense' shall have the
right to trial by jury a lury of bis peers.
That right has been taken away by the Re
construction act so-called, from every bu
nan being in ten States of this Union.
Was hea revolutionist because he contend-
d for the restoration of that right which
tas descended to the people of this country
rom their ancestors or are those men
-imposing the Congress that has over
thrown the sacred right are they the rev
olutionists? The contest, Said Gen. Blair, Is now close
u hand. Although the Radical party has
thoseu as their candidate for the first plact
on their ticket the General in command oi
die Army a General with whom and un
der whom be, Gen. Blair, bad fought, and
against whom he never bad said and nevei
would say aught In disparagement yet
they would be beaten. Gen. Grant cannot
save them from defeat, for the people have
willed that there must be a change of
rulers, and the voice of the people must be
obeyed. The Empire State of the Union
would give the Democracy its largest ma

Soldiers Voting—Soldiers Starving.
"Dispel his sophistry, in vain
The creature's at hia daily work again."
The Journal has another spasm on tbe
repeal of the law which allows soldiers at
the. so-called, Soldiers' Home at Dayton, no
matter where their residence, to vote at
township, State and Presidential elections,
In the election precinct where the institu
tion is located. The Constitution of Ohio
says a man to vote must be a free white
male citizen of the United States, and must
have resided and had his home In Ohio one
year next preceding the election. This
latter clause of the Constitution, the-law,
which the last Legislature blotted from tbe
statute book repealed, and under its pro
visions a man employeu or residing in that
Institution could vote in Ohio if his resi
dence was in Indiana, and then, by taking
tie train to Indiana, could vote in that
State the same day, and no power on earth
could punish him for this double voting.
Every inmate of the institution, under the
law as it now stands, if he is a voter in
Ohio, and.roakes hij home at the so-called
Soldiers' Home, Is a voter, and nojudge of
election dare refuse to allow him his votf
It is a new doctrine, one much more to be
"honored in the breach than in the observ
ance," that a law ot the Legislature, even 11
it is passed by a Radical Legislature, can
repeal and set aside the plain requirements
of the Constitution.
The men that control this Soldiers' Home
have made it a Soldiers' Prison, for men
are not there allowed to exercise their right
of suffrage unless they vote as the men
that control it deem right and proper,
Without other cause than that of an anxie
ty to hear Democratic speakers, and for at
tending a Democratio, meeting, wounded
soldiers have, within the last month, been
discharged from tbe institution, and yet tbe
Journal editor whines like a sick puppy,
because the Constitution is not violated,
In order to allow the men who committed
this outrage, to vote in Ohio all the soldiers
from other States they may choose to al
low to board a few days at the institution,
and wben they vote in Ohio to send them
to their real homes to vote again..
Just at this particular moment, when
the ,7 ournal finds the soldiers who fought for
tbe Union still anxious to do battle for it
by voting, for the gallant Blair and for
Seymour, its editor has much to say ot
' maimed veterans, with three ot their four
limbs, perhaps, retting on some rebel bat
tlefield;" but when the noble veteran of
Ohio, sunk into poverty and suffering for
bread, and the widow of those who fell in
battle", were suffering for even the necessa
ries of life, the money raised by taxation
to provide for their comfort was taken from
them by the last Radical Legislature and
by the Radical members of the Board of
Fund Commissioners and used for another
and a different purpose this stealing (for
that is robbery which is unlawfully taken)
tbe editor of the Journal has no word -to
censure then, the rights of the "maimed
veteran, with three of bis four limbs, per
haps, rotting on some rebel battlefield,'
had no word in that paper against the rob
bery of the $800,000 raised for his benefit,
but taken and used for another and a wide
ly different purpose.
To reluse to aid in a violation of the
Constitution of Ohio, is a crime in the eyes
of this Radical editor, but to take food
from tbe mouth of the crippled soldier,
his wife and children to rob the widow
and the orphan of that which justly be
longed to them to leave over six thousand
soldiers penniless in Ohio, .to starve, for
the money raised tor their benefit, and
which, when raised, was as much their
own as if it were deposited in an honest
bank to their credit, is a virtue that the
Journal can see no reason to censure.
It is beeause the Radical leaders have been
false to their professions of love for the
Union, shown by their efforts to dis
rupt it false to their promises to care for
the soldiers and their families, shown by
their transfer of the Soldiers' Relief Fund
false to their profession of respect for
the rights of soldiers, as shown by the ex
pulsion of crippled soldiers from the so
called Soldiers Home for attending Demo
cratic meetings, that has made more than
three-fourths of the White Boys in Blue in
this city veterans who fought in every
battle from Bull's Run to Lee and John
ston's surrender, Democrats who will vote
for Seymour and Blair for the Flag,
with all its stars, and for the States, with
all their rights tor the Constitution and
the rights ot white men to rule a white
The protection which Radical leaders
give to the soldiers' families and to the
crippled soldiers, now the war is closed, is
the protection which the vulture gives to
the lamb the protection which avarice
gives .to honest poverty the protection
which the inhuman master gives to the
horse whose strength has been worn oitin
bis service, and who is turned out to per
ish, because there is no more work in
Such facts as these make the White Boys
in Blue a tower of strength, in the present
canvass. God bless them, and may their
ballots save tbe Republic, which their bul
lets, in consequence of Radical treason to
ti Constitution, failed to do.
Meetings in Union County.
W. H. Randall and R. W. Thompson
addressed tbe Seymour and Blair Ciub, of
Darby township, at Unlonville Centre, on
the evening of September 26th. The ball
was full and overflowing with conserva
tive voters. The Democracy of Darby are
wide awake to their interests, and are
moving forward with apparent success,
and are confidentially expect to make
quite a little Democratic gain in reliable
old Darby.
W. M. Randall and R. W. Thompson
addressed the Seymour and Blair Club ol
Jerome township, Union county, at New
Calilornla, on the evening of Oct, 2d. The
Township house was packed full of voters,
composed mostly of Jerome, aided by Mill
creek. The Democracy ot Jerome and
Millcreek are thoroughly aroused to a
sense of their duty, and will give a satis
factory accou.it of affairs on the 13th ol
October, and the first Monday in Novem
ber. -
That Republican Canvass.
We are informed that tbe Republicans
have completed the canvass of Cuyahoga
county, aiid that the votes have been re
turned to their Central Committee as fol
lows: . . . "
Republican. Doubtful. Democratic.
9 897 646 8.113
Lnst year the vote was 9,673 Radical,
7,436 Democratic. We are willing to ac
cept the count, and give them one-half the
"doubtful." Why don't you keep your se
crets ? "Let us have peace V Plain Dealer.
That's a good showing for the Democ
racy of Cuyahoga county. Franklin, how
ever, will increase her Democratic major
ity more than Cuyahoga will decrease the
Republican majority.
Democratic Meeting at Xenia.
On Saturday evening, Hon. Gkorgb L
Converse addressed a large Democratic
meeting at Xenia, making one of bis best
speeches. He spoke over two hour, with
hoTinipst enect.
Look Out for Fraudulent Tickets!
No means, however infamous and vile,
but are used by the Radicals of this coun
ty to accomplish their desired end, namely
the rednctlon of the Democratic majority
in this city and county. They well know
that Old Franklin is tbe Gibralter of Ohio
Democracy, and any diminution in its ma
jority would be hailed with delightby every
disunlonist in the land. To accomplish
this purpose, our candidates have been
traduced, vlllifled and abused ; our pro
cessions have been stoned and our meetings
disturbed. Even these outrages have not
exhausted the Radical magazine. For
some time past fraudulent tickets have been
in circulation for tbe purpose of deceiving
the people. The names of two of the Dem
ocratic candidates are omitted, and in place
thereof the names ot the Radical candidates
are Inserted. Democrats, look to your guns
Let ho man vote a ticket, county or State
which has not all the names of our candi
dates thereon. Vote the ticket, the whole
ticket and nothing but the ticket.
Letter from Marysville.
[Correspondence of the Ohio Statesman.]
MARYSVILLE, O., Oct. 3d, 1868.
Col. J. C Groom, of Columbus, addressed
the Seymour Club last evening, at tbe
Court House, it being nicely filled with an
attentive audience. The Colonel made
some splendid points, but the only thing
that we regret, Is that our Republican
friends did not attend. Democracy is supposed
to be all sound on'the questions ol
the day, advocated by our Democratic
speakers, and if we could prevail on Re
publicans to attend and hear the truth there
might be some chance for their salvation.
The Hon. J. B. Coates made a moving
speech of four hours and a half, on Thurs
day evening, to the Tanners. . They, Indeed,
were not plenty, but as the hour grew late,
he bad moved them. They becoming tired
of his low harangue were digusted, aud
went home perhaps not as good Union men
as before the speech of tbe honorable gentlemen.
The Republican majority of Union coun
ty will be reduced to four hundred and
A Representative Candidate.
Republican press of the State are
generally calling upon the Republicans of
tbe 10th District, to be sure to elect Ash
ley, alleging that he Is a representative
man In the Republican party, and that
would Dea Durning shame to have him de
This man Ashley, who is held np as
representative man in the Republican par
ty, on the 8th of July, 1867, offered the
following amendment te the Constitution
ot the United States :
"After the 4th day of July, in the year of
our Lord eighteen hundred and seventy
six, all citizens ot the United States there
after becoming twenty-one years of age.
and who may thereafter be naturalized, shall
be required to read and write the English
language as a qualification to vote."
This amendment is aimed at the exclus
son of the Germans from suflrage, who
shall come to this country after 1876. In
letter dated August J9th, 1867, written to
Hon. William Lawrence, referring to this
proposed amendment, he sail :
"I will remark, however, in passing, that
I should regard that Government as wise
and liberal in its bestowal ot citizenship
and th privileges of the ballot, which pro
vided that I should enjoy all the rights and
privileges pertaining to native born sub
jects, on tbe simple condition that I read
ana write the language of my adoption."
Is Ashley a representative Republican
because he wants to proscribe the Ger
mans ?
Meeting at Chillicothe.
Tbe largest Democratic night meeting
ever held in Chillicothe was held in that city
on Saturday night. Fully five thousand
persons were present. There was a torch
light procession and a display of fireworks
Col. Higgiss and Hon. L. P. Neal were the
speakers of the occasion, and handsomely
did they acquit themselves. ,
Taxation Too Low.
The Journal claims that Taxation, which
is now crushing everything industrial, has
been reduced too low. This, then, necessarily
causes the monthly increase in the
Public Debt. Of course, the success of the
Republican party necessitates the increase
of Taxation.
A Lesson from the Enemy! Read!
A secret circular has been sent out from
tbe Republican headquarters at Columbus,
which contains hints that every Democrat
should need, we make oriel items of its
principal points :
1. Perfect your organization.
2. Ascertain tbe exact status of every
voter. s
3. Appoint committees at once.
4. Pay strict attention to tbe students'
voting law.
5. Inclose two tickets to every Remibll
can, one of which to be voted by him and the
otber Dy some aouotiui voter.
6. See every man tbe day before the elec
tion and secure his assistance.
7. Have every Republl an at the polls by
6 o'clock A. M-to remain during the dav.
8. Have tbe rallying and challenging
committees reaay oeiorenana.
9. Send for every voter not present or ac
counted for by 10 o'clock.
10. Let no Republican sleep after 5 o'clock
A. M. on the 13th of October.
11. See that all foreigners who will vote
the Republican ticket are naturalized.
12. Get home all Republican young men
who may be attending eollege.
13 Prevent change of residence by which
votes may be lost.
14. Look out for Imported voters.
15. Tbe Republicans of the State were
never so well organized, and never work
in? more effectually.
16. Follow these instructions and we
shall carry Ohio in October, and by a large
majority for Grant and Collax in Novem
ber. Let every Democrat in the State act on
these suggestions. Let him do as the Re
publican State Executive Committee are
culling on the Republicans to do, and Dem
ocratic victory will be certain.
"The New Rebellion."
Under this head the Tribune daily prints
the news from the South. Its object, ol
course, is obvious enough. Relying upon
that profound ignorance which, as statistics
show, prevails In those parts of the North
where the Radical party is strongest, it
keeps pegging away at Southern Demo
crats as"rebels,"in the hope that i t may keep
its own followers up to the boiling point
of prejudice and passion until after tbe

Tribune, indeed, the work of the war is
daily undone. In those formidable columns
t;ie Union dies daily. Whoever reads and
believes them must tremble with horror to

so bare of troops as now, since Lee's sur

self by publishing such a remark as this,
made by General Howard, the head of the

from an extended Southern . journey ?

Death of Judge Jacob Flinn.
In onr local column, yesterday, we an
nounced the death of that well-known cit
izen, Judge Jacob Flinn. His father was
one of tbe earliest Dioneers of Hamilton
county, coming here more than half a cen
tury ago, when it was little more than re
claimed from the savages. His son. J idge
Flinn, Inherited many of the virtues, aud
some ot the detects, of the early settlers.
He possessed a strong mind, had great and
positive force of character, with energy
and indomitable will, but, nevertheless,ac
companied on the social side with frailty
and weakness. He was generous and Im
pulsive, with a disposition that abhorred
every thing that was mean and ungrateful.
Ic bis physical proportions and gilts he had
hardly an equal.beinga Saul iu stature and
a Samson In strength. But. like most men
who are clothed with this Immense nower.
he was easy lu temper and placable In his
Destitute to a great extent of scholastic
education, and relying almost entirely upon
bis natural mental powers, he was not an
adversary to be despised: and in the visor
of bis capacity he had not a little Influence
over men. .Both as a lawyer and a crim
inal Judge he attained, so far as crinlitiei -
Hons were concerned, a very fair position.
in uis pontics ne was ever a Democrat ol
the strictest sect true alike to the princi
ples and organization of the party.
His Goliah stature, his remarkably Im
pressive appearance, together with his
well-known antecedents, and even his so

To the "little creature who, for some in
scru table purpose is permitted" to edit the
Delaware Gazette, we commend the follow
"WASHINGTON, 11 P. M., April 14, 1864.
"Major General Butler':
"Your report respecting negotiations
with Commissioner Ould for the exchange
ol prisoners ot war, has been relerred to
me and my orders.'
"Until examined by me, and my orders
thereon are received by vou. decline all
"Lieutenant General."
"Decline all further negotiations" for
exchange ot prisoners leave the gallant
union soldiers to rot and die in the South
era prison pens! These were the words of
General Grant! Soldiers! Citiz ?n?! Look
at the picture! Isn't it horrible! Could
you conceive how a man could be so cruel
so heartless? He sent Butler instructions.
of which that worthy said :
"Ot course these instructions, in tbe
then state of negotiations, rendered any
runner exchange impossible, ana retalia
tion useless."
.Reviewing tbts whole subject ot ex
changes In a report, General Butler, a sup
porter oi urant, nseu mis language :
"The great importance of the questions
tbe teanui responsibility for the many
thousands of lives, which, by the refusal tb
exchange, were sacrificed by the most cruel
forms ot death, from cold, starvation and
pestilence of the prison pens of Raleigh
and Andersonville. being more than ail the
British soldiers .killed in the wars of Na
poleon ; the anxiety of fathers, brothers.
sisters, mothers, wives, to know the exi
gency which caused this terrible, and, per
haps, as it may have seemed to them, use
less and unnecessary destruction of those
dear to them, by horrible death, each and
all have compelled me to this exposition,
so that it may be seen that these lives were
spent as a part of the system of attack upon
the rebellion, devised by the wisdom of the
General-in-Chiel ot the armies, to destroy
it by depletion, depending upon our su
perior numbers to win the victory at last."
And thus it appears, that General urant,
"the General-in-Chief of the armies," was.
according to Radical authority, the deviser
or tbe system that lelt onr gallant soldiers
to starve, and rot, and die in Southern
prisons! When you think upon the hor
rors of Andersonville, remember that
Ulysses S. Grant is answerable, in the eyes
of liod, and In tbe eyes ot man, for tbe
great sufferings and deaths that occurred
there, which he could have avoided by the
exchange ot prisoners, .which tbe rebels
proposed and he "declined."

. Dear Sir: In your paper of last week
yon, or one of your correspondents, say
that Dr. Drake. is not the originator of the
celebrated Plantation Bitters, and that
they were manufactured and sold by one
Pedro Martelle, an old Spaniard, In the Is
land of St. Thomas, over forty years ago,
as every .old sea captain can testify. Now,
sir, I can certify to the above as being true,
lor I have followed the sea for over forty
years, most of the time doing business with
the West Indies. These same Bitters, dif
ferently put np and named, were brought
to my notice on my first trip to the Island
of St. Croix for a cargo of rum, and for
years and years after, my ship's stores were
n jver without them. I always supplied my
family and many of my ueighbors with
them, and can truly say a better Bitters
and Tonic is not made in all the world.
Yours truly, .
