"rejoices that (ho enemies of their
vountry have been to Hgnaiiy rebu
ked," alluding to the niinoi ity vote
'f the Democratic party of Steulien
viile he wiiifully and knowingly
brands nearly two bundled thousand
citizens of his 'native" State, who
are us good by nature and by practice
as he is, "enemies of their country."
Such slang from a low, pot-house pol
itician might be tolerated, for they
are expected to indulge in such liter
ature; but coming from a man who
fills what should be the dignified posi
tion of Secretary of War, it shows
, that the man has either descended to
the level of a common babbling poli
tician, or that the orncu ha.s degener
ated into the petty post of a still more
potty and pctulent Provost Marshal.
Who would have thought that the
once proud leader of a proud and noble
party, could have so sunk himself to
the level of the merest lick-spittle at
the throne of pewcr, ae to use such
libelous nnd scandalous phraseology
towards the very party to whom he is
indebted for all he has and is. Well
may Mr. Stanton call the democratic
party of Ohio "enemies of their coun

be taxed in every conceivable form to
defray ins expenses at .imitation of

A Salt Lake correspondent of the
New York Evening Tost writes:
1 found President Young an agree
able, affable gentleman, apparently
not over forty-five years of age, al
though he is really upwards of sixty.
He was disposed to converse upon
any and all subjects very freely. The
treaty with Japah he regarded at first
as a failure, and the character of the
embassy which Visited the United
States lias served to confirm that be
lief. The war, he thinks will be cbn-
tinued till a great part of the North

more plainly, till nil are annihilated,

Saints. Jlrighum was disposed to
give any information concerning his
theater, temple and tabernacle, and
about his other public buildings. The
ventilating of his privato school room,
where his own children, numbering
some sixty, are educated, appeared to
ue a iavorne suuject oi conversation.
The ceilings of these rooms are eigh
teen feet high, ventilated from the
tops of all the windows. His own
residences there are several build

visiting Suit Lake are watched in their

ried. "We have heard of some townships
in this county where the Abolitionists
polled fifteen more ballots than there
were men in tho township. This ac
counts for part of the milk in the cocoa
nut. As their villainy comes to light,
we shall learn how they have fourteen
hundred more votes this fall than they
had last."
The above is from the New Lisbon
(Ohio) Patriot, published in Columbi
ana county. Its statement throws
some light upon the enormously in
creased vote given by the Republicans
at the late election an increase which
the census and all previous votes show
to be fraudulent. As it was in Colum
biana County, so it was all over the
State. The Patriot says further:
"We must confess we are astonish
ed at the vote of the county. The
Republicans cast for Btough 4,141,
and Vallandigham received 2,856,
making entire, in round numbers,
6.500. We are at the same time sup
posed to have from 800 to 1,000 men
in the army. So that our vote, if all
in, would be 7,500. Estimated by the
ordinary ratio of voters to the popula
tion, which is in proportion of six to
one, wo ought to have 45,000 souls.
By the census of 1800 we have but
82,000. The figures show.both fraud
and mistake somewhere."
j&gA correspondent of the Rich
mond Enquirer, writing from Bristol
Station, says:
"It is certainly truo that Meade
has managed his retreat most orderly,
and that he has saved his 6tores, and
lost but few men; though I think.it
equally true that the Yankee army is
considerably scared.
"Our boys have been sadly disap
pointed in their expectation of cap
tures, and from more than one of
them we can hear such un expression
as this, 'If Jackson had been along,
we would have gotten every thing we
wanted, but we have no Jackson now."
Our boys, however, make the Yan
kees whom, .they capture, pull off
their Bhoes, which they at once con
vert to their own use."

Those who think that the vote for

It will be seen that Mr. Vallandig
ham has received a larger Democratic
Tote than Was ever tasi for a Demo
cratic Governor before larger by six
teen thousand! He has received as
many votes as Stephen A. Douglas
got, with all his populality an 1 with
the excitement of a Presidential elec
tion to aid hiin in 1800, and with the
soldier's vote, then at home, many
thousands of which were thrown for
Douglas in that canvass. Now let us
compare Mr. Vallandigham's veto with
the Republican Governors who have
been elected:
Chase 14H.0OO

The total vote cast for Governor in
1801, when Tod was elected, was .(),

17!,000. Vallaiidighaiu has about
8,000 more votes than would have
been required to elect him Governor
two veins rgo cn the total vote then
There has been no Governor's elec
tion, therefore, in Ohio since it, was a
State when a vote equal to Vulhuidig
ham's would not have been largely
more l,Jian half. Save Tod and Brotigh
no man ever got as many votes for
Governor of Ohio as Mr. Vallandig
ham. Wc are satisfied that when Mr.
Dcunison was elected (jtovernor m
1 859, just before the Presidential elcc
t ion, there wore more votes in this
State than there are now with the ar
my vote out. HoAv happens it, then,
that Mr. Dennison could be elected
Governor, with the soldier vote at
home, in "1858, with 1 0000 votes,
when Mr. Vallandigham is beaten with
00,000 soldier's vote out by 00,000
majority, when he received several
thousand more votes than Dennison?
We are satisfied, from a review of
the facts, that the most gigantic frauds
were perpetrated at the late election
frauds to the extent of tens of thou
sands votes. There is nothing elis-
k,ic (. e,ection for tie lL,lnoora,ic
comasintr whatever in the result ct

this year can be renewed year after

In a private letter, written the oth
er (hiy, Mr. Vallandigham says!
"I observe that Mr. Chase is making
himself merry over my exile are! de
feat. Well, that is all right, too. Put
I remember when, a few years ago,
tbe name of Salmon P. Chase was the
synonym of every thing odious and
vile; and when he was one of the lead
ers of a party not numbering in the
whole United StfUes one-tenth part as
many as the votes which I received in
Ohio, at the late election, and poor
and humble enough to be content with
the crumbs whieli fell from the colored
people's table at the Baker-street
chapel. My friend, Mr. James Brooks,
remembers also, when he rescued Mr.
Chase from the violence of a mob in
Dayton, and led him, all trembling,
by the arm to a place of safety. Now
Salmon P. Chase is high in wealth
and position, clothed in purple and
fine linen, and faring euuiptqpusly ev
ery day, while I am the subjects of
his scoffs as an exile. But I shall live
to see the time when Mr. Chase will
be rent in pieces by the whirlwind
which he has contributed so much to
raise; and, made the victim of the very
mob before which he now triumphs
and exutls, as did Beltashav.zar at his
feast; and when 'Uncle Abe's i-aiuion'
will be of as little value to save him,
as ono of 'Uncle Abe's' vulgar jests.
1 may have to 'watch and wait' for the
time, but IT will come; and I shall
then be at home and in honor. Let
him and his friends laugh now."

That is a half million more people than

Forney's Philadelphia Prers is not
ashamed to publish, even since the
election, tbe infamous forged letter of
Mr. Valluiidigiiam, purp rtihg to be
written to a Confederate Colonel. The
Cleveland Ileralel, a violent Abolition

Not a single paper that published it:
but knew it was a forgery. The Her
ald was more honest than most of its
Republican cotempomries. We are
surprised to see, however, that even
the Herald indulges in the mean and
disgraceful libel of calling Mr. Vallan

since he has received the votes of 187,

Posecrans is'overboard, and Meade
is the next victim marked bv the Pa'l-
I icals for sacrifice. The Tribune Says:
"1 or reasons best known to him
self, Gen. Meade, about the day of the
Pennsylvania election, began to fall
back to the line of the Kapidan, con
tinuing his retrograde movement to
the vicinity of Ciiitrcville.
On the strength of these assumptions,
the President and Cabinet were again
nieasurelesslv assailed as sacrificin";
much property and taking the n.-k of
defeat, in order to can y the Fcnrisvl-
vania election."
It will bo seen that, the gist of the
accusation of the Tribune is that the
retreat of Meade took place "about
the day of the Pennsylvania election,"
sin 1 that in coiwijuciiec, "the Presi
dent and Cabinet were assailed," for
sacrificing the army to the Pennsylva
nia election.
For tiiis, the signal of assault is giv
en agaiiibt Meade; and his fate will
soon be accomplished! Generalship,
prudence, success, will avail nothing.
He should fight buttles for political ef
fect, and preserve the reputation of
the Cabinet nt ashington, even at
the sacrifice of his army. Wheeling

I beheld th se widows in their struggle fur

And 1 lit aid in hud and demoniac shiieks:
