made, by paying them in gold, thus adding
hundreds of millions to the burdens of the

the standing army in the South, to enforce

A Scrap of History.
It has long been the custom of mankind,
when'pejons have suddenly risen or been
raised from obscurity to distinction, to
search among the Incidents of early life for
indications of their aptitude for great ex
ploits. This has been done by the invent
ors of the various biographies of General
ULY88ES Samuel Grant. But, uniortu
nately for tbe present and future genera
tions, the various authors of those very in'
teresting and reliable works have over
looked, or to say tbe least, have failed to
make a record of some events in the life of
tbe Radical candidate for the Presidency of
the United States of America, which cer
tainly deserve to be set down to his credit.
Hence, in order to fill up a hiatus in the
biography of that distinguished Individ
ual.tbe Cleveland Plain Dealer prints the
following, copied from the records of one
of the Courts in the city of Detroit :

The Slander Repeated.
The Journal in its issue of Saturday re
peats the stale calumuy that General Mc-
Clellan Is likely to vote for Grant, and
that, too, after the editor had seen the pub
lished letter of "Little Mac," which we
gave our readers on Wednesday, in which
General MoClellan says that it Is his
"conviction that the measures of the party
that has placed him Gen. Grant in nom
ination are but continuation of strife and
can never restore peace or Constitutional
supremacy," and that:
"A restored Union of States and tipurtn
an invigorated Constitution, to be firmly
and faithfully supported; the maintenance
of the national credit Inviolate ; a re-establishment
of national and State rights In
all their integrityand thus true harmony
and a lasting peace these are the objects
for which every citizm should now strive:
and, believing these to rest in the success
tne Drmocratic cause, by the election of
the eminent statesmen selected to repre
sent the party, It Is my intention to sustain
tuat cause as a private citizen."
- If the utterance of sentiments so adverse
to Radical policy eo true, so earnest and
so patriotic' makes a man ''as likely to vote
for Grant as not," then no man can say
with truth, that there is "nothing new un
der thesun." . ' -
President Johnson, while in conver
sation yesterday with several gentlemen,
alluding to the fact that his hands were
tied, expressed his regret at not being able
to remove one of our foreign consuls, who,
by a vicious course of living, has rendered
himself an object of disgust to tbe whole
of the consular corps at the point to which
be is accredited. Washington Express.
j And thus it is under the Tenure of office

conduct of its officers abroad, while the

a Radical. - r
! Instances, within the last year, can be
cited of men, holding office, convicted ol
Penitentiary crimes, and even while
clothed in the stripes of a convict, still

glecting to confirm the appointment of
successor, which confirmation alone would
strip them ot the office tbey disgrace and

! Almost ever since the Tenure-of-Office
law was enacted, tbe American name has
been disgraced by a person, representing
the country at one of the South American
States,'; who Jives in open adultery with
prostitute, and who he bad the audacity to
introduce as his wire into the most virtuous
and refined society ot tbe capital of tbe
Republic to which he was accredited. But
the man who thus, in ft foreign' country,
disgraces the Republic that pays him a high
salary to watch its interest, is a Radical of
the Sumner and Wade school, and can not
be removed.. The disgrace he brings. upon
the United States, is but as dust in the bal

home he votes the Radical ticket and makes
s, ee ,hes for its candidates.
Letter from Cambridge.
[Correspondence of the Ohio Statesman.[
CAMBRIDGE O., Oct. 10.
Editors Statesman : A great day for
the Democracy of Guernsey. v The day
arose and continued as fine as ever shone.
From early morn till noon the Democracy
came pouring into this place, wild with en
thusiasm for. Seymour and Blair. A he
Radicals had two meetings in this county
Bome days since. The first at Washington,
was a grand failure. Tbey blamed it on
the weather. Tbey ti ied again last Thurs
day with some better success; but the
weather was again unfavorable to the
Bondholders another failure. But the
weather was far better than the speak
ing. It was reserved for to-day to bring
the crowd emphatically the crowd. Im
mense delegations from the townships
were in on horse-back, in large wagons
drawn by ten or twelve horses, In buggies,
carriages, and In all manner ot ways
Blacksmiths with lorges on wagons at
work ; stone cutters, painters, carpenter;,
coopers, and other mechanical trades. Ban
ners with every imaginary device some
of them most pointed all appropriate-
nothing offensive occurring, except when
the western delegates nrjt passed up
town, headed by tbe Ztnesvilie Cornet
Band. A parcel of Radical roughs at
Rainey's corner insulted - the procession
and endangered the lives of some in the
wagons by striking at the horses with their
caps and hats, turning the procession over
to the other side of the street. The county
o'Fc'als all Black Radicals, looked on
for a time approvingly till it got too
bad, and then they made a feeble effort to
stay it and to some degree succeeded. S.
Stewart did the best he could to allay the
disorder, but the miserable ill bred fellows,
who It said were all hired for the purpose,
came near taking the law into their own
hands. These miserable fellows have dls
graced this town no such behavior was
seen on the part of the Democracs on
Thursday no Insult was given by them to
their opponents; but decent men do often
become desperate. Tbe oldest citizens here
assure me that never was such a proces
sion, for size, enthusiasm and display, seen
In this county.' It far eclipsed the famous
Vallandigham and Brough meetings, in
1863; and, as compared with the Radical
afiair on Thursday, it was as an elphant to
a mouse. It is certain that 500 wagons and
8.000 people attended this meeting. ' The
crowd turned into the Fair Grounds and
were very ably and eloquently addressed
by Hon. Archibald Mayo, of Columbus,
and Hon. Wm. Lawrence, of Washington
They did their work with masterly hand,
and were listened to for near two hours
with wrapt attention. This meeting again,
was the grandest success in the way of a
a political mass meeting ever held in East
ern Ohio. Had it not been for the vile
rowdyism of the Radical roughs in the
forenoon, of which the more appreciative
of the party I am glad to say are now
most heartily ashamed, there would have
been nothing to regret; but it made us
votes. Bingham is a gone coon. Look out
for glorious news on Tuesday evening lrom
old Guernsey.
The Columbus Statesman says that the
Democratic press have not made tbe charge
of drunkenness against ueneral urant
part ot the campaign! Whew! If the
Statesman actually believes what it says, it
has either tbe shortest memory on recora
or it never reads its Democratic exchanges.
The trouble with the Statesman now is tbat
some Republicans are pushing tbe liquor
question so tar as to investigate uenerai
Blair's habits note not what he may or
may not have done some time since. Cleve
land Herald.
The Democratic press never made the
charge ot drunkenness against General
Grant, until after It was made by bis own
party friends, Wendell Phillips and oth
ers. The Herald knew the charge to be
well founded, and it tacitly admits it, by
its silence, when the Plain Dealer calls up
on It to deny, If it dare, that Gen. Grant,
when in Cleveland two years since with
President Johnson, was so drunk that he
had to be carried from the cars to tbe De
troit boat, in order to enable him to sleep off
the effects ot bis drunken debauch; The
Plain Dealer proposes to prove the charge,
if the Herald dare deny it. That sheet sings
mum. While In this city, on Monday, Gen
Blair was accused of the same crime, and
tbe charge was made in the Journal. We
gave it the lie direct, for it was basely, wil
fully and maliciously false, so much so,
that one of the Journal editors, not willing
to brave public opinion, which was out
raged by so gross a slander on a brave man
n a card In that sheet, not only denied par
ticipation in the foul libel, but individually
denounced it.
The same charge was repeated in a tele
gram from this city to the Cincinnati Chron
icle. Tbe correspondent of that paper in
this city, in a published card, denied that
any such telegram was sent by him, or in
his absence, by the agent he left for that
purpose, and the lying telegram Is now
flying the rounds of tbe Radical press, an
illegitimate spawn, the child of nobody
none so reckless and so low, as to own its
Ot such stuff is the charges against Gen
Blair made, and knowing them to be
false, the Herald revamps and publishes
them. Let that paper, If It dare, denounce
ai false the charge against Gen. Grant
in Cleveland, and It will be proven. Tbat
against Gen. Blair, In Columbus, we de
nonnce as one of the basest coinage ot
lying editor, false in whole and false in eve
ry part, and so known to our citizens.
The Herald, we trust, will now be satiS'
fled f r time, for It has got a notice from
the Statesman. '
The Bankrupt Treasury—Increased
"Dbxmab. the Doleful," is the nickname
the Journal applies to the Director ot the
Bureau of Statistics at Washington, whose
letter, exposing the bankrupt condition of
the Treasury, brought about by Radical
misrule, has so startled the public mind
Tbe term "Doleful" is not inapt, for it

he proves there is a deficit In the Treasury

such further sums as you may be willing

This Is decidedly "icicle." If you were
not in such "sore distress," and were it not
that the "hour of your calamity cometh"
very soon, I would laugh. '-Only one
hundred dollars and such further sums,"
&c. Now, gentlemen, "you are off your
legs," "you are reckoning without your
host." I have voted and worked with the
Democratic party for twenty-two years
since I had a vote have never even scratch
ed a ticket and I must confess that I am
most "cussedly" and amusingly impres
sed with your d d impudence, In enter
taining, for one moment, the thought that
I would contribute even one single, solitary
cent to save you from political perdition,
whither you and your Radical crew are
fast hastening, and would drag honest and
better men than yourselves with you.
You want money, do you, to corrupt the
bonestmen of the country you and your
coadjutors being already as corrupt as rot
ten eggs?-
Why don't you call on Ben Butler or
"Bill." Gibson, or the scores of "shoddy
contractors," "cotton thieves, army specu
lators, and bounty jumpers," whose noses
you have kept at the public crib until the
people ere stolen poor?
Why don't you call on those white llver
ed rascals of your party whom Dawes, of
Massachusetts, on the floor of Congress,
said stole more money from the Public
Treasury during the first year of Lincoln's
administration than was expended during
Buchanan's entire term, and make them
shell out? ,
Permit me, gentlemen, to inform you
that I fail to see the "sympathy," &o. The
people here begin to see tbat your sympa
thies, and the purposes of your party,
would be htly and appropriately represent
ed by a white man lying prostrate, bound
' band and foot, a negro standing on his
neck thrusting a bayonet at his breast,
with tbe "Goddess ot Liberty" in the back
ground, outraged, and her garments, with
the "Star Spangled Banner," bedraggled In
tbe dust. -

have bought Grant, and paid more than he
Is worth. Your sinking party.'in its dying

God forbid the only ditterence in price
between him and Judas will be tbat of
925,000 per year for tbe one, and thirty
Dieces of silver for tbe other. -
The man who would betray his country
into tbe hands of such a party as . yours,
would sell his Savior for less than "thirty
Dieces of silver." did the opportunity otter.
No, gentlemen, your actions belie your
words, and I can't come down' with tbe
stamps. I know that you are hard up, tbat
your waning cause imperatively demands
that vou must "make a raise," "by fair
means or foul." and most pathetically do I
sympathize with you, and bope you'll find
your man, or someonay eise.
In conclusion, gentlemen, I will say
very respectfully, that I am most "pro

D. B. Eberman, Esq-, Cashier Exchange Bank,
Akron, O: :
Dear Sir : While in conversation with
a gentleman a tew day since, x was in
formed that for good reasons you had aban
d nned the Republican party, and that you
would identify yourself with no party who
had not the public good at heart, and whose
aim was to be, to protect tne poor as wt 11
as the rich ; further, you believed that the
Democratic principles were in conformity
with vour own, ana were inenaiy to non
est industry, and striving to reconstruct
the States lately in rebellion upon an hon
orable basis, which would speedily ef e
a thorouo-h Union, enliven traffic, and
asrain place us upon a firm financial bot
tom. Your early reply as to the truth of
my informant wUl much oblige yours with
AKRON, Oct, 6. 1868.
H. F, Hahn, Esq:
Dear Sir Your letter of the 2d inst., is
received. In reply I would say that the
information you have received, regarding
t.hn r.hanire of mv political views, is correct
T hftVA always cast my vote with the Re
publican party, but feel tbat I can do so no
longer with consistency ; nor can I snp-
nnrt a, nartv who nominate men wnoadvo
cate and tolerate such principles and meas-
urts as tbey now aavance ana sec lortn.
My principal reasons for the abandon'
manf. o f the Republican party, are
lst. 1 am opposed to keeping a standing
iii the Southern States.
2d. I am opposed to the Freedman's
Bureau, to feed Indolent negroes at the ex-
tuanu of the Government. w
3d. I am opposed to the enfranchisement
of the negroes m tne boutn, wnen we re
fuse them the right of suffrage in Ohio.
4th. I am opposed to the National bank
Jno-Rvstem. for In my judgment it is in di
rect opposition to the public good, lor-we
are nav in g interest on three hundred mil
Hons ot Government bonds to secure the
circulation of two' hundred , and Beventy-
miliion dollars ot National bank currency,
where we could issue tbe amount in green
backs in their stead, and save so much in
terest to the Government and the people.
These are my principal reasons tor aban
doning tbe Republican party, and I do so
with all candor, honesty and patriotism,
and will support the Democratic ticket in
the same spirit, lor I believe as tbe sun
rules the day so will the Democratic prin
ciples alone restore the country.

As the " to-morrow " of the Journal is
the Christian Sabbath, and as the recep

phia came off on Thursday, we have reason
to doubt the accuracy of the Joxirnal, in
this instance as we have doubted it before.
Would it ijot be as well for our Repuh
lican friends to submit to the people's
choice, John H. Thomas, for Congress to
morrow, instead of trying to defeathlm by
buying up voters and running negroes into
Greene county.

Holloway's Ointment. The reopening
of old wounds Is a source of great suffer
ing to thousands. - Some wcands, on the
other hand, are never perfectly closed. In
either case, whether tbe wound has degeu
erated into a slow sore, or, after having
been , apparently healed has violently
broken out afresh, Holloway's Ointment,
applied as a dressing, will eventually te-
move every particle of inflammation, fill
tbe orifice with sound flesh and perma
uently prevent any further pain or trouble
lrom the part. Sold by all Druggists.

Mr. Editor : Stveral of your correS'
pondents, very old and respectable no doubti
seem to be wonderfully exercised as to tbe
origin of our Plantation Bitters. So
long as these Bitters are all that we repre
sent them to be, we do not know that It
makes any difference from whom they
come, or from whence they originated
but for the information of the public gen'
erally, and old Capt. Wentz In particular,
we will say that he told the truth, and tbat
these Bitters originated In the West India
Islands that many of the ingredients have
been favorably used for over a century,
but our combination of Calisaya is entirely
new, and our own. The rum and other
materials are the same, and as your corres
pondent says, a better Bitters and Tonic is
not made. We recommend them particu
larly for dyspeptics, fever and ague,debili
ty, loss of appetite, and in all cases where
a tonic and stimulant is required.

year, when the night dews are e: ill and heavy, and
the morning fogs are charged with miasma, tha
body, debilitated by tbe heats of summer, is pecu
liarly susceptible to unwholesome influences. At'

required, both as a safe-guard against fever and
ague and other malarious disorders, and as a prepa
