will protect his franchise. The Constltu-'
tion of Ohio declarer that --every white
male citizen of the United States, of the
agaet twenty-one years, wbo .shall have
been a resident of the State one year next
preceding the election, and of the town
ahrp. conntT or ward where he resides, such
time as may be provided by law, shall have
the qualification ot an elector, and be en
titled to vote at all elections.' The Supreme:
Court declared the Democratic law to mean
nothing more than this Tirovisioi; and the
student of the Constitution lor a short time
wearing, Democratic, shackles, is again
tntj la iU i 6ijSiii.'iU
It In in this very clause of the Constitu
tion that the repeal of the law allowing
students to vote when absent from their'
homes, was based. The student, it be is a
resldent"-that Is, j. his home is at the
college-where he Is getting his tuition has
the right to vote in that township; but If
his home is in another county or township,
he must go to' that home to vote. So it is
with the laborer; If he goes to Springfield
to work for Mr. Thomas, no' matter how
long he stays, he cannot vote if his home
i in Urbana, or Dayton, or Columbus, but
roust go to the place he calls his home be-
fore h an vote. -The law places the rich
student and the poor laborer, who Is forced
to go abroad to get work, on the same foot
ing. Yet the .4foertir complains of this.
But this Radical sheet proposes to nulli
fy the law, and to make Students vote at
the election 'next Tuesday, whether
the law 'allows it or not; and so, in this
manner by ' polling Illegal vote?, Mr.
Wit. ass, who le now a tlittle frightened,'
may be elected to Congress. The Adver
iisertsyl - ' ' ,
" It la possible that some of the Derooc
lacy may have the effrontery to challange
the student's voles in this community on
n-xt Tuesday. We hope every student
will remember that the Conatitution of the
State and the Supreme Court are on his
side. That they will all go to the polls
and refuse to answer every question that
discriminates against them as American
citizens. Cast their votes if permitted, and
if not report the fact to the Central Com
mittee, whom we hope will see to the pros- ;
edition of all Judges refusing them votes.
T-By this advice, intended mainly for the
negro students in Greene county, where
everything black has the right to vote, the
Advertiser will get Its friends into trouble.
The man presenting himself to vote, if
he refuses to answer the questions pro
pounded to him, even If be be a legal voter,
will find that the law compels the Judges
to reject bis vote. - .''- - -i
The man wbo offers a vote, knowing, as
the students to whom the advice is given
do, that tbey have no right to vote, are li
able to both fine and imprisonment. -
The 'Advertiser advises these Students
whose legal residence is not at the College
where they are being educated, to vote,
and this makes the editor of the Advertiser
liable, under the law, which says that "any
person wbo shall procure, aid, assist or
counsel, or advise another to give bis vote,
knowing .that, such parson" is ''not duly
qualified," the punishment of such of
tense lg imprisonment "in the county Jail of
the proper county not more than nix
months, nor less than one mou th." . ,
.. That Is the way the Election law of 1841
treats such men as the editor of the Adver
tiser, who proposes to set aside and to nul
lity its provisions. His dupes, it any one
is foolish enough, to take his advice, and
himself, will .find-tbat the time is not now
when laws can be nullified, even to elect
Mr. ; yriAN8 to Congress. -The attempt

Good News from Philadelphia.
From a letter written by a well known
and reliable gentleman from Warren, Pa,
we make the following extract:
"I am soouring this section of our State
Great changes every where.--We will Kn

Stanton, is now stumping Ohio for Gen.

j Time and time again v Albert G. Brown.
k United States Senator 1 from Mississippi,
has charged that Edwin Ml! Stanton was
a secessionist just before the war com
minced, and that be (Stanton) gave him
(Brown) aid and comfort by counsel to go
out of the Union, declaring the right ot the
States to do so, and assuring Gov. Brown
that the cause of the South had his high
est sympathy., , Ed wis M. Stanton has
never dared to deny the charge, because it

their. friends. But these living skeletons
were not to be thus returned GRANT'and
Stanton could not afford to swap well men
for dying ones, and General Grant, who
would not have dared to do it without the
sanction of Stanton, gave an explicit or
der against ,the exchange. ... ,. ( ,

to that paper during the time, placed
the brand upon Stanton for preventing the
'exchange.,.. Since , .its publication Mr.
Richardson,, who was a prisoner in- the
rebel army, in his work, "The Field, the
Dungeon and the Escape," page 417, says:

This refusal to exchange the sick, wound
ed and suffering Union soldiers in prison
at Andersonville, may. have been "good

The Radical Organs in Cleveland.
The city ol Cleveland is blessed, or cursed,
with two Radical papers, one called the
Cleveland Leader, the other the Cleveland
Herald, which, like Fob.net said about bis
two papers, are "both daily.":, Thev are
ultra Radical.. . i
Occasionally these sheets attempt to
draw a notice from the Statesman, by
yelping at it as a silly puppy barks at
a locomotive. The character of these
sheets can be seen by the following :
Early in the war, after David Tod was
elected Governor, and before he was in.
augurated, Uavid, tninktng he had, as
Governor elect, almost omnipotent power,
refused to Jlow the Herald to be carried on
the Mahoning railroad cars, because it was
a " treasonable sheet." -, -i
Within the last year, Benjamin F. Wadf,
United States Senator, and acting Vice
President of the United States, declared, In
his own choice language, that the "Cleve

beauties in their way one, in the eyes of
David Tod, "disloyal," the other a meaner
paper than the Journal of this city.
Who Sent the Lying Dispatch to
the Chronicle.
. A special telegram from Columbus to the
Cincinnati Chronicle, bearing date on Mon
day last, says of Gen.BLAR1s departure from
ibis city:. . , ;. , ". ., ' .
"At the depot he was injudicious enough
to attempt another speech, in .which he
took occasion to say that the object of the
Democratic party was to uphold constitu
tional liberty and preserve the Government
for white men.! He was disposed to reit
erate the assertion that Ohio, Indiana and
Pennsylvania were sure to go for the De
mocracy, the reckless character of which is
due to his drunken condition. The truth is.
the Democratic candidate for Vice President
is quae lull ol whisky, and he shows his intox
ication disgustingly.
Who is the author of that Dispatch, so
villainously false and slanderous? Mr.
Nash, the regular Telegraph correspond
dent of the Chronicle, denies it on his part
for he was not la the city, and he also de
nies in a published card that it was either
written or transmitted by the agent he left
to fill his place during his absence.'
Who, then, wrote it ? We. feel anxious
to unmask the ly ing scamp. , Was such a
Telegram ever sent, or was it manufactured
out of whole cloth in the Chronicle office?
Will that paper rid itself of the infamy of
this gross ana unprincipled slander by giy
iug the name ol the author ?

A Radical Editor who Thinks he

campaign at all he will enter it upon the

'The letter of Gen. McClkllAn to the
Democratic meeting in New York puts this
slander of the "knowledgeable" man that
edits the Mail most effectually at rest. He
says:. ' '' ' '' ' :' " ' '
"I. gladly avail myself of this opportunity
to express my continued hearty sympathy
wicii tne uemocratic cause, ana my ardent
wishes for .tne successes ot those constltu
tional principles lor which the recent war
was undertaken by the North.' Separated

other brave soldiers so ably commenced.

history of the struggle in which we have

Which Horn of the Dilemma will
they take?
The usurpation of power arid the tramp
ling of the Constitution under foot, is well
shown in the following' from the Panola
(Mississippi) Star. It says:-
The most palpable iarce of this age we
noticed in- tbe Clarion of the . 2Sth. , A.
Ames, in a proclamation, signs himself

support, one of two things is certain:

If Mississippi is a State of the Union, then
Brevet Maj. Gen. Ames, who styles himself
"Provisional Governor of Mississippi,"
and exercises supreme power in that State,
under the law of a Radical Congress, is a
usurper who ought to be brought to pun
ishment for treason in usurping power,
confided by the constitution of Mississippi
and of the United States, to the people and
to them alone.' Is secession a success or are
the laws of a Radical Congress unconstitu

Radical Principles Carried Out.
. A fellow by the name of Hawlky, who,
we suppose, calls himself a white man, and
who is a Radical candidate for Congress in
Illinois, said, in a recent speech :
" I would take the negro by the hand and
elevate him up to the same level with my
self; yes, tellow-citizens, I would elevate
him even higher !"
It would be well to elevate such a scamp
in tbe manner that Haman was elevated for
conspiring against the Jews, whom Grant
denounced as a class on account ot their re
ligion, and expelled from his command.
Radical Principles Carried Out. The American Flag-The Difference

A Crime of Force and Fraud
' Under the head of "Republican nonor
and Honesty," the Bevolution calls attention
to an editorial in the Spingjield (Mass.) Re
publican, telling how., the negroes of
Georgia were tricked by their white Radi
cal friends. Job Johnson, Harris, and
others.. Says the Bepublican:
! .. "The original draft of the present Con
stitution of Georgii contained an article
making all qualified electors eligible to of
fice. - This was rtrock out on motion of
John Harris, now a Ridical candidate for
Congress, by a vote of 126 to 12, the 12 be
ing white men. .Afterward an article was
adopted declaring the Georgia code and all
laws adopted since January, 1861, in lull
force, except as to slaves, and by .this code
negroes are excluded from office. The ne-
groes in the Convention did not know what
tney were about, or course, out tne white
men did, an 33 ex Goveri or Brown soo
after referred to these proceedings of the
Convention iu a public speech as evidence
that the liauicals ot ueorsu aia not intend
to establish negro supremacy. The white
R.idicals who were in thU little game
thought it a very shrewa tninsr thus to
cheat the uegroen and catch Conservative
. votes. So tar as they are concerned, the
result is a righteous retribution. - By ex
eluding the negroes, tbey throw the State
back into Democratic bands, and go out ot

ha've betrayed."
""The negroes did not know what they
were about, of course," says the Bepublican.
Why, of course? Because had they known
what they were about, they "would have
voted differently. But why didn't they
know what they were about? Simply
because' of their ignorance and un
fitness for the places they ' 'occupied.
Tbey bad been elected members of a Con
vention to assist in making the fundament
al law of a great State, and when tbey cam
to vote on s most important question relat
ing to their race, they did not know what
tbey were about. But, says one Radical :
''How could you expect a people just re
leased from the barbarism of slavery to
know much? Of course not; but then the
Congressional reconstruction policy deemt
them qualified to become a part of our po
litical system, and take part, not ouly in
the government of themselves and their
neighbors, but of the whole United States'
Now, did the white Radicals of Georgia
commit a greater fraud on the negroes,
tban the crime which the Radical leaders
are trying to cotnmlt against the good gov
ernment and the people ofthe United
States, by and through the Congressional
reconstruction policy ? By no means not
one tithe so great. The latter is a crime ol
force and fraud combiued, aud its authors
should be scourged, as with a lash of scor
pions, naked through tbe land by an out
raged people. i
