We submit that the writer of the above paragraph comes as jiear being Old Liar ' himself as is possible for a man to get. If he be not the father of lies, he Is the lather-ln-law, at least. Our citizens who on yesterday saw Gen. Blair, have now an opportunity ot knowing the reckless and base character of the charges made against him as an offset to the charges of drunken ness made by Radicals against Grant. Galoot Record. The galoot depart ment of the Mayor's office was well attend ed yesterday. Among the distinguished delegates present were : Washington Coulter, who was on a lim ited drunk. He paid $5 for his lun. William Blair was also there. He was a compound tare of drunk and disorderly. It cost him $6. He liquidated. William Halsey was drunk from his boot soles to bis bat crown. He got permission to assist tbe Street Commissioner, in de fault of $5. William Qulnn, another sweet William, attempted to wrestle with old Ben Zine. Ben threw him, then he threw Ben. His drunk resulted in his being allowed to smash dornicks in default of 95. : .. Thomas Welch, a drunk and disorderly galoot, paid 95 for his Sunday spree. ; . DEPARTURE OF GEN. F. P. BLAIR. A MAGNIFICENT OVATION. Successful Impromptu Affair. The announcement yesterday of the presence ot General F. P. Blair, next Vice President, in our city, aroused the entire Democracy to the necessity of exhlbitlng to the distinguished soldier their admira atlon for his hefoie deeds on the battle Held and noble defense of the Union since the war, as well as for the high position to which he Is soon to be elected. The affair ot course, was an impromptu one, General Blair having arrived hereon Sunday even ing at 5 o'clock, and designing to leave on the noon train yesterday. There was no time for a verjr elaborate display, but the vast crowd which gathered at the west front ot the State House testified in their presence their anxiety to see the hero they are so shortly to honor still lurther. About ten o'clock a large - crowd gathered in front of the Neil House, where Gen. Blair was stopping, and at about the same hour the gun squad of the White Boys in Blue, with their little peice, opened out in the State House square, making the city ring with thunders for Seymour and Blair. : As the roar of the gun was heard la the remotest part of the city, the De mocracy came in crowds to tbe State House. A detat hment of the White Boys in Blue, as an escort of honor, with banners flying, and led by Hemmersbach's band, marched up High street and created considerable enthusiasm as they marched into the State House square. -. . Gen. Blair, escorted by Hon.E. F. Bing ham, Chairman State Executive Commit tee, John G Thompson, Chairman County Executive Committee, Col. I. H. Marrow, Commanding White Boys in Blue, Dr. Trevittand other citizens, appeared on the steps of the State House and was received with the cheers of the multitude. The General's speech was received with lusty shouts, and he was conducted to a barouche wating at the Neil House, from where, accompanied by a large concourse of citizens, he was escorted by the White Boys in Blue to the depot. At the depot he was compelled again to speak a few words to the vast crowd there. He playfully excused himself from any . extended remarks, and introduced General Joe Geiger, who made a most effective ten minutes'" speech. With songs irom the White Boys in Blue Glee Club, and greet ings and band shakings, the time pissed nntii the train arrived which carried the next Vice President from our city, follow ed by the huzzas and good wishes of the people. ".'' First -Ohio Cavalry -Re-Union. The surviving members of the First Ohio Cav alry hold their first re-UDion In this city city to-day. for the purpose of reviving old associations and friendships and forming an association which shall annually hereaf ter meet at such point as may be designated. This regiment was organized during the latter part of 1861. and was mustered into the service on the 6tb day oi October, 1861, under command of Col. Owen P.Ransom, and was the nucleus of that host of cavalry which, under the. leadership of Stanley, Crook, Mitchell, McCook, Kllpatrick, Gar- rard,Long,Minty and Wilson achieved such triumphs for the country and fame for themselves. Col. Minor Milliken was its second Colonel. He was killed at Stone River. B. B. Eggleston succeeded to the command, and was, we believe, mustered out with the regiment. A braver set of men never crossed sabres with the foe. Upon their colors are inscribed the battles of Corinth, Decatur, Triune, Stone River, Tullahoma, Trenton, Ga., Chickamauga, Washington, Tenn., Paint Rock, Cleveland, Conrtland, Ala., Kenesaw, Patterson, Jones Valley, Ebenezer Church, Selma, Mont gomeiry,Macon and a hundred engagements of lesser note. In its career it had met and whipped the commands of Roddy, Mor gan, Wharton and Forest, tbe best cavalry men of the Confederate service. It was mustered out and discharged in this city on the 2Sth day of Sept. 1865. We welcome the brave ' boys of the First calalry to our city to-day. May the occasion that calls them together prove a pleasant one, and may the survivors long live and often meet to "fight their battles o'er again in song and story." The Card from a "White Boy in Blde." In reply to a card published in the Jour nal of yesterday, signed by a man who calls himself a White Bay in Blue, we have but this to say in reply: The man's name never was put on the rolls of the active members of tbe organization, because he was so enfeebled by disease contracted in the service as to be unfit for active duty. He attended two meetings, and at his re quest Col". Marrow procured transportation tor him to the Soldiers' Home at Dayton. On his arrival there he found he could not obtain admission without first renouncing kls supposed connection with all Demo-' cratic organizations, and while at Dayton, in order to be admitted to .tbe Home, he wrote the note published in the Journal, un der the dictation of those in charge at the Home. He was merely tolerated by the members ot the White boys in Blue, be cause of his lnfirmltles,and was never solic ited to enlist with them and was never mus tered in. Left to himself, common gratitude would have compelled him not to snap at the hand from which he had received only kindness because be was a disabled soldier. The facts here set forth will be verified un der oath if need be. By the publication of tbe letter, the Journal has showu to the world the mean practices prevailing at the Soldiers' Home, In Dayton, where a man will not be admitted unless be votes to suit those in authority.

The opposition to General Butler is not baked entirely on his previous political opinions, but upon the following grounds, which the speaker read : - Because he is self-willed, arrogant, headstrong, domineering,of violent tem per and bitter hatred, intractable, implaca ble, Inconciliatory. His great governing passion seems to be either to rule or to ruin ; a friend if you submit, an enemy u you resist. He is persisting, unyielding, bold, bent upon his own way at all haz ards, artful, adroit: in private life not with out generous qualities, but in public life . Knowing no scruples; ot great anilities; . not troubled with modest; devoid ot moral sensibilities; of keen wit, but abus ive and violent in speech and diction, with , his faculties all sharpened and acute. Such, he said, was the man in whom the Repub lican leaders all over the country do not confide. Such was the man in whom they, as independent electors ot the Fifth Dis trict, would not and could not con ad e. Mr. Abbott's remarks were received with . applause. Mr. Dana, in accepting the nomination for Congress, spoke at considerable length, -reviewing the position assumed by General Butler on the financial question, and stig matizing him as the Ishmael of the Repub lican party. It is claimed by Butler that he is the regular candidate, and therefore should be elected. The sneaker thought this did not follow. The great contests of liberty have been fouzht. not bv the rezu- lars, but by tbe volunteers and the mili tia, and : with them, in these contest, be (Dana) cast his lot Great ap- piause.j tie continued with some criticism upon the caucus management, which he- declared the weakest point in our political system, aud said that this in connection with tbe right party discipline of the Democratic party, which General Butler now proposes to engraft upon the Republi can organization, was the reason of that de gradation or the Democratic party which General Butler so much deplores.
