AtlO o'clock A, Jtf ., for (he purpose uf giving expression lo the honest conviction of the Democratic party ot Harrison Lunty. We will not meet W express our opinions through the discolored medium sfssioa prejudice or individual interest. . ior will ambi'ioo or desire of ' place have uny influ ence upon our deliberation. No, we meat to reiterate our atiachuMOt to principle; tu show that the Democracy have made for themselves during the last eighteen month, an twr living npitalion. Never did so large a party show a constancy so unbending, a love ol country v disinterested, a jmience undor all manner of persecution and tyranny, ao e Jul tel. In the wins spirit we will con tinue, arer manifesting an uUlterabt love forth principle to which we have beea so loaf attached. We are now living in a time of the greatest trouble. Our rulers are constantly engaged in projects of the most malignant kind. Their every act only leads to bring about a mora disturbed statf society. If the peo ple do not arrest ihem in their wicked and vrfnuman sohemes, inevitable and everlasting ruin to the unity of the nation will be the consequence. . , The object is to reconcile and conciliate a people deeply exasperated on account of ap prehended dangers. To do this our ru'ers proceed and commit all thoso acts which have a tendency to make those people feel that their apprehensions were well founded. Amidst all this madness, this designed wickedness, attended with so ranA terror ism, so much usurp v ion anl tyranny, and also at a tima when our personal liberties were inecure, when submission to arbitrary rule or impiisonrnent was the only alternate, when enemies in disunite wero denominated patriots, and tnio and lofty patriotism de nominated treason; amidst all this, and du ring this time, the Democracy remained firm and unshaken, unalterably devoted to the b :tt interests of their country. The Democracy may now be likened to a Btoutand atrong ship left on dry land, un harmed, after a mighty and destructive del- up had swept over the land. The deluge j has only proven the ship to be capable of enduring all the hardships incident to the most stormy voyage. The great work which the Doinocracy have to do, is to delend the noble and Just cause of liberty. The means by which w will do it, will be a steady firmness, tempered with wisdom and prudence, a determined courage such as will enable us to do what we see to be right, and a manly nsiitance to all encroachments upon our liberties. We will demand the instituting ol laws such as will command the voluntary respect of the governed. We shall never assist in compelling the entire people ol any State or States to obey laws through constraint. The laws will have to be Buch as to lead them to obey from inclination. All who approve of these views are requested to meet with us. DR. E B. OLDS, who was incarcerated by the minions of Lin coin's despotism in Fort Lafayette, and re leased without a hearing; and GEO L. CONVERSE, tb abl Representative & Franklin Coun ty, will b present and address the people. ' MANY CITIZENS. Spring Elections. The Spring elections aro now rapidly approaching to be followed by the most important fall campaign ever had an this country. Let us prepare by the organization of Democratic Clubs in every lownslnp in Harrison county. We cannot be gin too soon, hence let us begin at once in the good work of organization Let the work be begun vigorously for the election' of Democratic men and the vindication of Democratic princi tdes. In all movements of the kind we shall be pleased to publish the no tices for meetings aud proceeding?, if furnished to us. ' : Opposed to Peace on any Terms!

' Wheat Crop of 1862. There is a general testimony tuat the wheat crop of Ohio, in 1862, was the best raised in many years past.

Now he Irics a new dodge. He says for them to remain in their party organization, 'but." That's the word "but." "But" what? Why permit themselves to be led about by such men as himself and Lewton. The Democrats are not that "Green." They don't pick up with anything that is qnite so vcrdont. And further, when a mnnthat has be longed to the Democratic party be gins to tamper with abolitienism or anything else that is not Democratic, Democrats have no hesitancy in tell ing him just what they think of his political course. The Domocratic party is a party that has nerve. The abolitionists have anything else. jggjf-Last week we bantered broth Ilatton to publish the call for the Democratic Meeting in Cadiz, March 7, in this week s Republican. He has a"reed to do so; and requests ns to publish General llosccrans' foolish letter to the Ohio Legislature, which will bo found on tho third column, third page of to-day's paper, where he has agreed to place the call for the Democratic meeting. What Gen. Rosecrans expects to accomplish by writing such a letter is only known to himself such letters arc not written by "shoulder strap" centlemen. or the expectants, of "shoulder straps," without expecting to receive consideration therefor. ""A Chance to csst. Hunu. A cor respondent of the Missouri Democrat says: "Ilorey Hutchinson, from Dans ville, Kentucky, was arrested by the Confeilerates at Hernando, Mississippi last week. A belt around his body contained $25,000 of counterfeit Con federate notes. He was tied up and banged until he was dead." If any other persons wish to be hung for any similar offense, they can supply them selves with the proof by consulting an advertisement in the Cincinnati Com mercial, in which persons of loose morals are told where they con get counterfeit Confederate script in any (iuantitv and of any denominations ..... . .. desired. Eg-If the republican party is such a pure and incorruptible party, why is it that every scribbler of that party, who wishes his articles read, and have influence, signs himself a Democrat? The answer is very plain: No name that the abolition party can call them selves by is respectable, while the word Democrat, the name that the Demo cratic party has ' been called by ever since the foundation of the Govern ment, never wears out, but grows brighter as it becomes older. . No man' is ever ashamed of having been a Democrat. , . , i . . , " Doe the Adinintalrnltoit lUfmi to Force Civil Wur ill the North.

This movement in Pennsylvania is worthy of imitation in the Wci In every town and in every neighbor hood of the Northwest peace petitions should be circulated.-. Let the people ask for an armistice and for the meet ing or a National Convention to settle our present difficulties. Nearly every body prefers that to the continuance of the war. There is no doubt, if the matter is pressed, that not less than one million of signatures, men and women, could be obtained in the North west in sixty days. Let it be circula ted, and let the Administration know the real sentiments of - the people. The advocates of the proscculion of the war ly means of drafts by means of forcing people to fight against their will by means of immense taxes and general ruin and bankruptcy are in a small minority, a minority daily growing less. We believe that to-day twenty thousand out of the twenty- five thousand voters of Cincinnati are for stopping the war, and for peaceful negotiations, to effect the reunion of the States. Cincinnati Enq. The Soldiers Sloped atestrliiiK. An order has been issued prohibit ing the circulation of all newspapers in the Army of the Potomac until further notice. This is a very strange movement, and one it will be very dif ficult for the administration to justify before the country. The soldiers are also American citizens and have a right to know what is going on in the world Of course it is obvious why ! has been issued. The all I this order has been but universal dissatisfaction of the country with the negro policy the rad icals are forcing upon the government is very clearly indicated by the news paper press, and the feeling is quite as common in the army as elsewhere. The administration hopes by this means to prevent a knowledge of the imposed by a court-pecuniary ana lwpns , , , i .i ' omuent to remit one or the other.

It was changing the war for the Union into one for abolition that has done all the mischief, and while this policy obtains matters will grow steadily worst. The absence of newspapers will increase and embitter tho feelings of the sol diers, who will learu all the govern ment wishes they would not learu from their private correspondence and by report. The time is not far distant when Mr. Lincoln will see, what is obvious to all sane people at the North, that this is among the most foolish of the many foolish expedients of his counsellors World. jgegThe Connecticut Democratic State Convention met at Hartford on Wednesday, February 18, and nomi nated Hon.

The immense cost of living is becoming a subject of general complaint in all parts ol the country. Prices of almost every thing j used in a family have advanced 50, 100, and, In some caes 200 per cent. The price ol labor ha nowhere advanced in the same porpoition. The consequence is that many articles of food, once common on th table of the laborer and person of smaller means, cun no longer be procurred by him. Hi clothing too, and that of bis family, is of a poorer tenure, but immensely higher than it was formerly. . There is, consequently, great suffering among the people, and as the pri cen continue to advance, it will reach the middle ohsne. As thing stand with our present political policy unchanged, this will take place, and the coat of living will reach an almost fabulous rate. What scenes of woe it is destined lo produce in thiscommu'" nity! Bet the Commercial, Ouseile and Ttmts, whose policy has brought this terrible calaminty upon the people, insist upon go nig aneau, aiinougn u. reuuees tne weanny to poverty, and plunges the poor into utter destitution. Be tore they would listen to the policy of peace and compromise, they tell us, they would sacrifice the last dollar, and the last man. and that they would bring poverty und suffering into every dwelling in the land. Wh-it do they car if the poor are compelled, by their hard rentless and bloody policy, to live poorer than the serfs ol Europe? Their ears ure deaf to the Buffer ings they have already helped to produce. Their eyes are blinded lo the mischief they have wrought. What to them although tb poor man is deprived of his customary food, clothing and' shelter, and ia compelled lo submit to half ration, if not to a arvation? Their political policy is triumphant, and aa long as the distress does not reach their own door, i hey cry out hourly for tb last dollar, the last man, for the last cow of the poor, and the last mite of the widow.

The Sheep market opened Monday morn ing in Sixth street very differently from that day week. Then it Was all animation , now it had nonfi. Then the price was equivalent by the head to 8s per pound, live weight, and that held well into tbe week, lor all real lii st class Sheep. But the butchers had abaidtimein Washington Market on 8a nrdav. DriceS running down fr 'tn 8Wc 39 ft lor mutton carcases, to 1)4, 6)5c, andJ even 4c, and ihey are' unwilling to pay as much tor live sheep by about o "p lb.and do not appear anxious to buy al that. ,- There is also a decline in pelts, and some good lots have sold at $3,75 during the last week. It is expected .that th commencement oi Lent this week will have some effect upon the sheep market, and that there will not be a large a supply as usual needed for, sev oral wek. Our opinion is that - the present depression is more owing to a decline uppn pelts than upul carcase, i It ia tha opining of some who are weii Informed, that w hav seen the highest point in, tli sheep market.
