The Journal on Election Frauds
—Slanders on Columbus.
Tbe bird that befouls its own nest, is
said to be the meanest of all living things.
It Is no worse, however, than the man who,
by falsehood, false figures and false infer
ences, attempts to bring discredit on the
city that Kiye Ji" an abiding place, and
whjese, business'! men furnish him a living.
Since ihe election on the second Tuesday
' In this month, the Journal has attempted to
obonrithal the city- of Columbus, usually
the most orderly and best and cheapest
government, of its size, in the State, is given
over to mob violence and misrule that its .
monicipal officers are banded with "thieves
and other law breakers, to set the election
laws at defiance, and that the city, grow
ing faster in wealth, in population and in
business enterprise' than any other of the
second-class cities in tbe State, la vastly
overrated in population. These things are
done, not by fair argument, supported by
f icts, but by false: figures,' sustained by
arrant falsehood.
For instance, the Journal publishes the
vote in the city for Mayor in 1863 and for
Marshal in 1868, and contrasts it with the
vote at the election for State officers this'
fall, to show that the vote of 6,053, given in
Columbus, on Tuesday, the 13th inst., was
a fraudulent one that the true and entire
vote ot the city was but tbe 3,529 given in
1865, for Mayor, or the 3,993 given as the en-,
tire Vote for Marshal In 1868.
To draw it mild as possible, this exhibit
is the most contemptible special pleading.
The vote at the municipal election is al ways
sffifilTwheii compared with that held In Oc
tober. Had he Journal compared tbe vote
of last fall with this, the result would have
hown'a different phase. 3 10 v Ji-
The entire vote ot the city at the October elee-
x tion in 186T was.-.-' ---- 5428
In 1868.... i ...-
Showing but 627 'votes between the: two j
elections In a city" whose" population is
growing faster .than any other in Ohio, and
in which, during the past summer, more
bUBiness "and '-dwelling houses,' not with- '
standing the. great cost of building mate
rial, have been erected than during the five
years, previous. ?: j r -- r. .-;
The Journal makes this attack on the
city. In order to show that the Democrats
polled a larger vote than . was legal . at
the late" election. Let us see if its own
figures cannot be tnrncd against it. .Be
tween the Marshal's vote last spring and
the vote this lall, the Republican vote in
the Ninth Ward increased 103, and tbe
Democratic vote increased 170. This was '
tbe waid where the Journal stated Repnbli
. cans were driven from ' the polls and not
allowed to vote, yet the Republican per
cent.' of increase was greater than that of
the Democracy. ' ' . .." ' ; .
'In the Eighth ward, "where a row was
got-upby a leading' Radical, catching a
Democrat, who had been attacked with
stones by a negro, thus allowing the intel
ligent contraband to escape, tbe Republi
can vote of this fall was increased over that
of the spring election 107 votes, while that
of the Democracy, largely - in the ascen
dency, was increased but twenty-six votes
more than the Radicals, These tacts show
h)w villainously the Journal lied we use
strong language because none other suits
the villainous falsehood in charging fraud
upon the Democracy of the Eighth and
.Ninth wards. V ";V".'; : ' ''' " ' '' '" "
In the First, Second and Third wards,
where Republicanism bad its own way,
controlling the election, the increase be
tween - the two elections , in these, tbe
smallest voting wards of tbe city, was :
In First ward...... ....... ......... '. 119
Second ward ss
Third ward........... 117
Republican Increase....... 875
There is less building in these wards than
any others in the city. In the Second and
Third most ot the bonded wealth of the city
is to be found,and where that is, no Improve
ments, except at the cost ot the public, are
made, and yet, in these wards, whose voting
population combined 1s not, on a full vote,
as great as that of either the Eighth or
Ninth (Democratic) wards, the increase is
nearly as large as both the Eighth and
Ninth wards combined, with their 1,541.
voters against the 899 of the two Republi
can wards. --
If, then, there was fraud, tbe Journal's
own table shows that the frauds were com
mitted in its own wards, for there the per
cent, ol Increase is greater than in the Dem-
ocratio wards. ... . , -H .. . ., , u , . s
The city of Columbus, at the late elec
tion," polled no fraudulent votes. Within
its corporate limits it has fall five hundred
more votes than were polled on the 13th
instant, and he who attempts to show that
this city has no population to justify such
a vote, and who brings np tbe figures of a
municipal election, where scarce ever more
than half a vote is polled, and contrasts it
with thatof a general election, to prove that
fraud has been committed, does that which
he knows to be wrong, and is to all intents
and purposes as bad as the bird that befouls
its own nest, for be glanders his own city

One Million Dollars Offered as Wagers
on Seymour's Election.
The Radicals didn't show their
Faith by Works.
H. T. Helm.bold, of New York, who
lately sent his check -lor forty thousand
dollars" to the Democratic Committee ot
New ,York,. to be used in printing and
disseminating documents, is out in a card
offering to stake one million dollars on the re'
suit of the Presidential election, in tour differ

The So-Called Naturalization
. The Journal and tbe Radical correspon
dents of the Cincinnati papers, have made
a terrible to-do over the arrest of John
D tjffy, a citizen of this city, on the charge
of complicity in certain supposed natural
ization frauds. Mr. Dcvfy had a hearing
on yesterday before Commissioner Chit
tenden, ; which revealed a scheme
of ... double-di6tilled .. scoundrelism -on
the - part of Radical leaders, which
most sink them . in . the estimation of
all honorable men.', The witness Smith
was compelled, by a searching cross-examination,
to confess that he was instigated
by a leading Radical to make! the charge
o l which Mr. Dcfft was arrested, to save
himself from prosecution for illegal voting,
and that he was, moreover, promised
credit of, . a grocery if he would
swear -out the warrant. , This bribed
witness acknowledged that he voted on the
naturalization papers which he had'not
procured from the Court, and that be also
voted in 1863, knowing that he was not a
legal .voter. A warrant for the fellow's
arrest will be followed by bis indictment,
conviction and sentence for illegal voting.
The testimony ol Judge Ptjgh is clear as
to . -'the fact that the fellow, Smith,
was not at bis Court, but that
the papers were procured by a man of the
same name, who- was doubtless tbe real
owner of the papers on which this Smith
voted, and which- be . must have fraudu
lently obtained, by personating-the real
owner. - - -'- ' '
The whole evidence, as far as the exami
nation has gone, is given - in to-day's
Statesman. It shows the most arrant
scoundrelism on the part of the Radical
leaders, and leaves not a shadow of a shade
of suspicion against cither Mr. Duffy or
Judge Pcgh of nnfair dealing.
Since the above was written, Smith has
been arrested and committed to jail for
fraudulent voting. :
The Twenty Years' Radical Taxation.
"Retrenchment," says President John
son in his letter to Gen. Ewino, "has be
come an absolute necessity, or bankruptcy
must soon overtake us." - That, says tbe
Boston Post, is what the people are being
told by Democratic speakers and journals
every day, and almost every hour of tbe
day. The army draining away nearly a
hundred millions in a time of peace each
year, and tbe debt interest in one form and
another amounting to nearly one hundred
and fifty millions more here is an aggre
gate from these two items of two hundred
and fifty millions of dollars yearly! The
people sweat that much every year out of
their labor, paying heavy taxes on their
property, high prices for . clothing, fuel.
food and dwellings, and submitting pati
ently to tbe hindrances which are thrown
in tbe way of trade and commerce, and to
numberless obstructions, to busiuess of al1
kinds. And now tbe Radical demand is set
up, that military government shall le
maintained in the South for twenty years!
This heavy load of taxation, in good par
totally" needless, for twenty years! Is h
not time for the people to call for retrench
tnent nay, demand it, before matters are
in such a state that neither reconstruction
nor anything else can save them? '
"General Grant declares his policy to be
that such a degree of peace and tranquility
shall exist in this country that a man may
speak his mind in any part of our great
land, and that without molestation or hind
rance." Chicago Republican.
"It is proposed to elect Napoleon First
Consul," said Net to the French army.
"Opinions are as free as air. Every man
can vote as he shall please, but all those
voting against him will be taken to the
head of the regiment and shot." Grant,
the Detroit Free Press says, will be willing
that evecy man shall "speak his mind, pro
vided his opinions are favorable to General
Grant. In that way he will secure "peace
and tranquility." i-
Democrats, Look Well to Your
The Journal has a sensation head and an
equally sensation article charging that:
"Trustworthy information has been re
ceived from one of the southern counties
of Ohio that Seymour's friends have re
sorted to the scoundrelly trick of printing
fraudulent tickets with tbe names of urant
and Colfax over the, names of the Demo
cratic electors.""
We pronounce this charge a base, a will
ful, and a deliberate falsehood. The J ournal
has no such information it never had. It
any such Tickets exist, they were printed
by Radicals, in order to give color to tbe
charge. i i ' j ? ; ' - '? ' "1
Jilst before the election on the second
Tuesday of this month, the Journal charg
ed that the Democracy were importing vo
ters into the border counties and through'
out the State, to carry the election. The
river counties were to be tbe great depots
where this game was to be played. Now
mark the result. In tuese same river
counties the Radicals, by imported voters,
increased their vote over ten thousand
that of the Democracy remained about
the same as laf t year. In the State,, al
though tbe changes from Radicalism to
Democracy were great, the Democratic
vote was only increased 9,067, while thatof
the Radicals was increased twenty-three
thousand five hundred and. fllty -eight, of
which, we venture the assertion, over
that amount were imported, and conse'
qnently were illegal and fraudulent votes
Learning wisdom from the past, we warn
our friends to BEVY ARE OF FRAUDU
LENT TICKETS, which will be printed
and circulated with the intent to be voted
by Democrats, with the names of Seymour
and Blair at the head, but containing the
names of some, if not all, the Grant elect
ors. ; ,.; -.."-."';
This we charge, because the Journal has
raised its "stop thief" cry against Demo
crats. This we know, for the reason that
no scoundrelism was ever practiced by
that party on the eve of the elec
tion," that they ,t did not charge Jo
advance - as about being perpetrated
by Democrats. . , Forewarned the De
mocracy will be forearmed. Take
no ticket from a man whose politics you
do not know. .. Take a Democratic paper to
the polls with you, to see if the names of
the Electors on the ticket are tbe same as
those printed at the head of the Democratic
papers, and if a fraudulent ticket be offered
to you, punish the scoundrel who does it
by holding him np to public execration.
Corruption in Office.
Gen. Samuel F. Cart, member of Con
gress from the Cincinnati District, in a re
cent speech, said . "I will undertake to
say that there are men in Congress who
were not worth a groat when they got
there, who are now worth a million of dol
lars, and I do know they never got it out
of their salaries." Led by this statement
to investigate the rapid increase ot Con
gressmen's wealth, tbe Indianapolis Sentinel
has found that the aggregate value ot prop
erty now estimated to be held by less than
forty . Radical Senators and Representa
tives, whose names are given, is over $700,-
000,000 against an aggregate valuation of
a little over $1,000,000 when they took of
fice. These "statesmen" have enriched
themselves from the public purse, every
dollar coming from the toil of the laborer,
and have at the same time fastened a debt
of over $2,500,000,000 upon the people
which they now propose to fund, with "gold
interest and free from taxation, for all
time to come.
A "Union" Triumph.
There is o.ie Radical triumph at the late
election in his State, of which the news
paper press of that party have failed to
make "menti on. It was in the case Of a
Senator to fill a vacancy in the Portage
Senatorial District, always largely Repub
lican. ; ;: :'..". . ",
The specimen brick of tbe, so called, Un
ion party, nominated as one peculiarly rep
resenting the opinions of the majority of
the District, bears tbe name of Wm. Sted-
man, and is the same sweet-scented, Union'
loving William named in the extract from
the Senate Journal ot this State, page 83 ol
the session of 1857 : ' ; - '

Savage, and other strong-minded women

son, Madison, and Henry Clay did. " :
The Roorbacks Coming.
It massacres at the South go on much
longer at the rate the Radicals report 'hem
now, there will be nobody left there to
bleed. The "horrible murders" during this
week will be "shocking." The assassina
tion of Democrats is not so much matter,

Democratic procession, is all natural
enough; it is merely the exuberance of

.! Aftfr the failure of Seymour's reception
in the Senate Chamber, from a scarcity of
people to receive, tne .Brass liana and the
Cheering Band the committee on Music,
and the committee on Enthusiasm pro
ceeded to the Neil House to pay their spon-i-anonim
resDects to Seymour under the
strict military orders of the Commandant
of the White uoys in uiue. journal.
"Seymour's reception in the Senate
Chamber" failing "from a scarcity of peo
pie to receive," is the silliest falsehood ot
,!,, Vamnalffn. The Chamber was so
crowded as to be uncomfortable, and hun
dreds who went to pay tbelr respects to
the distinguished guest returned disap
pointed, because the crowd was so great as
to make it Impossible for ladies to wedge
their wsir in. Besides this, from want ot
proper ventilation, the Chamber became
so insufferably hot, that the reception had
to be cut short, ' and Gov. Seymour re
tired to his a uarters at the Neil House. "
We noticed many Republicans in the
crowd, who, not because Gov. Seymour
was the Democratic candidate for Presi
dent, but because he was a distinguished
citizen, visiting Columbus, called to pay
their personal respects. We commend to
their prayerful attention the silly falsehood
of their organ. ,
Contesting Elections—A Radical
Sheet on the Contesting Situation.
tion. ' ii H
The Chicago Tribune, a Radical sheetj not
having tbe fear of Egglkston, Ashley and
Julian before its eyes,v thus alludes to
the threats ot certain defeated candidates
of Jthe party to contest the election of the
Democrats who defeated them :
. x "Mr.- Benjamin Eggleston,' one of the
present members of AJongress ' from Cin
cinnati, was defeated at the election a few
days ago by S24 majority. By a compari
son of the vote, it is ascertained that 227
Republicans who voted all the rest of the
ticket, refused to vote for Eggleston, and
that number of votes being withdrawn,
defeated him. . There is loud talk among
his friends of contesting the election. In
the Toledo, Ohio, District, Mr. Ashley is
defeated .by over 1,000 majority in a ' Dis
trict which gave the other candidates on
the Reputlican ticket fifteen . hundred
majority.- There is talk there, too, of
contesting the election.' In the Fourth
Indiana Congressional District there was
a clear Republican majority for the State
ticket, with the exception nf Mr. Julian,
t le candidate forConsress. Enough Ret ub-
, licans voted azainst him, or failed to vote
- for him, to defeat him by a small majority.
He talked, also, ot contesting the seat, but
subsequently a shorter means of redress
' was discovered.- The vote of one precinct,
strongly Republican, but . larsrely anti-
Julian, was thrown out, and Mr. Julian
declared elected. Thus the election ot the
Republican State ticket was ulaced in leou
ardy that a local candidate might defeat
the popular will, and retain bis ' seat in
Congress. i ( v-. - -
. . "It these proposed contests were merely
absurd proceedings of particular individu
als, their action would be of very little
moment; but in each Case the proceedings
based upon tbe assumption that because
tne next House ot representatives will be
-Republican, that body must, as a matter of
course, decide all claims witnout regard to
their merits, In favor of tbe Republican
and against the Democratic candidates. It
is time the Republican- party put the
stamp of reprobation upon all such as
sumptions. The last House strained law
and justice to their utmost extent in order
to displace General Morgan, ot Oiiin; the
result is that the people of that district
have re-elected General Morgan by a ma
jority oi several tnousana. -
"The Republican party is not justified
in sustaining fraud, or in arbitrarily put'
ting out an opponent to maVe place for a
friend who has been repudiated by his con'
stituents, nor can the party afford to give
any encouragement to any contest the real
basis of which is that the claimant is a
Republican. If Republican members of
Congress cease to command the respect and
conncience ot their own party ana get ae
feated. let the consequences of nominating
such men be borne by those guilty of the
folly, but do not undertake to reverse the
public decision by another act ot lolly
The Republicans, as a general thing, will
be stronger witb all that class of men out
of Congress than in It.
Forward to Victory.
That staunch Democratic sheet, the Bos
ton Post, in commenting upon the result of
the recent State elections, makes the fol
lowing suggestions: ,3
"No, theie is but one course for us and
the country to pursue. We must keep
our lines unbroken, our front firm, and our
purpose unsnaken. xbe results ot the re
cent local elections ought to Inspirit us to
still more intense exertion. We have beat
en down Radicalism to meagre majorities
in spite of the concentration of an immense
corruption fund and delusive promise
without number for the future. That part
or the battle will not have to be tough
over again. The November election will
scatter these reserves of fraud and money
and send home every man to his proper po
sition. We want but a few thousand votes
in Pennsylvania, and hardly one thou-and
in Indiana; and we have reduced the Had
leal majority in Ohio astonishingly.

rather push on to victory ? Can there be
any greater boldness than that . which
presses forward with Us purpose when all
things are working together with us? Can
that be called in any sense boldness, which
stops to change front or consider the deter

us to march forward, keeping our banners

tracks. The mere suggestion of it. as we
see, makes the enemy wild with delight.

Praise Extorted from a Radical.
J L. Motley, late Minister to Austria,
in a speech made at Boston a few nights
since, made this allusion to Gen. Blair,
whom the Radical , draft-sneaks are de
nouncing as a traitor :
: '"The Democratic candidate for the Vice
Presidency is a distinguished lea'ler in the
Union armies. . His name is indelibly asso
ciated with some of the most illustrious
campaigns, . hardest fought battles, tri
umphant marches of the war. Through
out the picturesque and brilliant maneu
vers and desperate assaults at the memor
able siege ot V lcksburg, on the world-fa'
mous march ot aherman to the sea, the
name of Gen. Blair is conspicuous and his
torical. No man in this country, whose
Government he has helped to maintai
against armed rebellion, would pluck
single leaf from his laurels." .; r-

ot the returns so as to give Baker a major

Lancaster Intelligencer says the ballot-box

been equaled. , It beat the celebrated cam
paign of 1838, when towns cast more votes
than they had population.

Avert Danger.
"Out of the nettle Danger we pluck the flower
Safety," says Shakspeare. Feeble invalid, do you
wish to pluck this flower T If so, invigorate your
TERS. Strength Is your safety. Weakness is
never safe. Acute disease makes short work of the
feeble. Re-enforoe half-defeated nature with the
finest vegetable invigorant in the world." Not mere
ly an invigorant, however, but a gentle laxative,
more potent blood depnrent tha any prescribed in
thepharmacopceia,and the best aeti-bilioas medi
cine extant. It is because it combines so many im
portant medicinal properties that this remarkable
vegetable specific produces such extraordinary effect.
Asa preventive.it forestalls disease by end wing the
human physique with extra resistant power; as a
curative, it sustains the strength while removing the
complaint. Its use as a reme ly for indigestion is now
so general in all parts of the United States, that it
may be consistently entitled the national SPKCiriO
for Dyspepsia. Its oelebrity is not confined to
thia country, however, or even this continent.
There is not a port in the Western Hemisphere to
which it is not consigned; not a State between Pat-
I uonisand the Arotio aea iB Dih "hostet-

Cristadoro's Hair Preservative
AND BE AUTIFIER is a preparation of equal merit
and repute. Its effect npon the hair is electrical.
It fastens every loosening fibre, replaces harshness
with silkiness and flexibility, semi- baldness with
luxuriance, dullness with goss. Its nse will incline
the straightest hair to onrl. and prevent the driest
from turning gray.' It is the favorite at every toilet
where it has been tried, and at a means of keeping
the hair free from soruf or dandruff, and the scalp
from exfoliations, is perfectly invaluable. ,
