Sin: Ilattoa tift beiag afraid t 'publish my replies to tia low attacks, I have to request the jmWioatioii of the followinz in jourjHijier. Yours truly, ; . S. B. SIIOTWELL. ! Ricoabd Hatton, Sir: I notice by your "worthless paper" of this werk that you are not quite satisfied,' but after a couple of weeks rest you have again resumed the "practice of the lock-step." Your article is highly characteristic just the way a Rascal - - always talks when caught in his tricks and exposed as yon hare been and are to the gae, contempt and ridicule of honest people. You seem exceedingly anxious to mSlce the public believe you have always been Bingham's "open" friend. I will try to help you along a little on this point as you . appear to Bucceed poorly. I never said you did uoi. do rtiui jsst; ouc mac "you were and are pecrbtly his eemy;" and so I say yet. Why with all your efforts you are not able to conceal your hos tility. What mean such snarly, inad dog kind of expressions as the follow ing in your paper of Nov. 4, 1863 "'We are no man wonsmrrKU or man Jearer; and we clain tho right to speak approvingly or dis approvingly of Mr. Bingham as of other men and we INTEND to exercise it so long as we . , live." And in your present article "if ho (Bingham) is not satisfied with what the press (Cadiz Republican you mean as this is the oy press in the 1 District,) of tho old 21st Congressiona District did for him na is certainly VBSTT HARD TO PLEASE, to Say tho s least of it." Such expressions do not come from a friendly heart, but from one boiling over with hatred and ill-will. You say his election 3 years ago" was before your difficulty with the Agricultural Society. Well, whosaid ; it was noi? But your exertions to de ' feat hi a year ago were afterwards. Now let us see how you ditt it. The true friends of Bingham in the 16th District felt that it was to say tho least a DOUBTF0L one and that it would be necessary to bring to his support every union vote both Republican and Dem ocratic. This you knew so talked and professed to believe. Now in the face of these facts in your paper of the 16th July, 1862, you undertake to define what you call "Our position," in which after giving us unconditional Union men a few slaps you saj "The question at issue between the Repub licans ot Harrison county and a few gentlemen in Cadiz is, whether the Republican organization shall be ig nored in the. approaching contest in ims county. v e claim that the ex istence of a Republican party should he recognized in the call for a County Convention, and that our party or ganisation should be maintained by putting in nomination a ' iikpublican county ticket that we ihould dontinue' to keep up our organ ization is almost tho universal opinion of tho Republicani of tho county." ' "We are willing toj act in concert with the State Union organi cation, FOR THE time BBiNa; and we expect to suppaft the Union State ticket which may be put in nomination on the 21st of August, because it is the BE3T WE CAS PO .UNDER TAB CIR CCH3TASCB3. isut there is no reason why the Republican party should bo abandoned in Harrison county; and wo trdsi that Republicans will per mit No SUCH thing to take place. lot TRUBjicpublicans from every town ship, be sent up as delegates to the county conrention, and let us mako a ticket composed bxclusivelt of Rj- publicans. We want no mongrel ticket in Harrion County. We have men in 0R own party, competent to fiH all the offices in oar gift; and we can givo a STttAianx Republican tick et more votes in this oounty, than cm be given to a mongrel ticket. Noth ing therefore is to be gained in jhe way of votes by abandoning the Re publication organization. "Believwg'.that the Republican par ty la nearer RlQUTthan any otuee jpolitical organisation in this county, jrefhall labor to maintain it, notwith - stailiog theBNKlRS of the would-be leaders of ' hew party here or else wata; and in doing so we believe we . are carrying out the wishes of nineteen -twentieth of. th Bopliblicans of this punty." ? Such was joar (Dick Ht- tions) posttiea and in it you were sup. parts of the county, who thought they had eons chance for office in the Re pnblicaa party, but knew they had I nos in an unconditional Union organ ization. Now it must be recollected that a year previous to this we had a Union organization in Harrison coun ty, but when it became manifest that we either had to let you have your own course or hare. a PianT.it was thought best to abandon the Union organiza tion, anil let you have your course and so you had. In the other coun tics in the District our friends attempt ed a Union organization, and when Bingham was nominated he was put on a ririON tlatpoum-. The opposition 6iezcd on your article, published and republished it through out the Dis trict and showed the political charac ter of the Harrison cuunty ticket ami claimed mas your paper Was liing- ham s home organ, and therefore his mouth pice, and that the whole Union organization was a cheat and a fraud 'to catch gudgeons.' . The result was .t. . i i. . , . wi.-u iingnam was oeatcn oy some 2300 votes. Belmont and Tuscarawas ounties, which we had carried the year befor by small majorities went against us Belmont by some 100Q and Tuscarawas by some 1100, and even in Harrison our majority was re duccd to less than 200. Tho fact was tliat nobody but such as were or had Lbeen Republicans voted for him. Now could any friend of Binghams, with tho light, you had before you, occupying tho relation and position you did (the Editor of a newspaper in liinjrham S Own COUntvl in n. ilnnKtful district, make such a blunder? No, sir; you were and are no friend of his. You aro his secret enemy and need not try to lie out of it. The people of Harrison county and the .District know and feci it. ' l'ou say Bingham did not get you appointed to office. My information was otherwise. The people of Harri son county will be glad to hear that such amonkey was not appointed to office igh Bingham's iufluence. You say that tor a mess of oysters I "helped you skin the Agricultural Society." Well you admit that you did skin tiiem. That's exactly what I said and am glad that you admit it. But I did not help you and got no oysters. It is true that preferring the "new Board" to the old Board I voted for it; but I took no part in the con test. But I guess you afterwards found the "new Board" quite as care ful of the interest of the society as the "old" had been, as I understand they brought down the printing about ?60. I think my conceptions were about right. What do you think.' But let us come to the great ques tion of your "Frauds on the County Treasury." You say I make the amount greater than jt should he, and charge me with lying about the matter. I make the amount for last year 000,55. Is not this the true amount? Look over your accouut and see, and if there is any error, point it out and I will be pleased to correct. Rascal and dis honest as you are I will do you justice. In looking over the statement I made out and published, I notice through inadvertance one item of $23,12 for "printing for Buard of School Exam iners" was left out. This should be put in the published statement and the footing of $000.55 is the correct a mount received by you. Now cither admit yourself a willful and deliberate liar, or show wherein I have misstated the matter. You next claim I mis represented you in regard to your charges of 56.25 and $67.50 for the Treasurer's notice of last year and year before that tho "latter is Ion ger man cue lormer. aovr let any man examine the two notices, and he will find that the notice for which you charge $67,50 is really the shorter one of the two. It contains 63 double or 125 lines of single column matter, while the one for which you charge ?5C.2o contains 65 double or 180 single lines; counting in both pieces ot lines as whole double column lines. Tho two notices are substan tially the same, and the only difference is the one just pointed out and that the one published two years ago is in lar ger type than those of last and the present year. Ten lines according to your term3 make a square. Sj the notice for which you charge $56,25 contains precisely 13 squares and the tho ono you charge $67.50 contains 13 squares less 4 lines. I suppose you charge the $11,25 additional because Richey writes notices shorter than Grace another evidence of your "re markable honesty." Now these noti ces only containing 13 squares, come to only $19.50, and no more for the first three insertiont, according to your own published terms, and you cannot cover up your frauds by lying. However, this is said to bo. constitu tional with you, and perhaps yon ought not to be blamed. :j You next say I "took 1 advantage of a typographical error in your .terms. ; If . there was any such error why do you not point jtodtf - rerhaps, as I am a pretty! were in the habit of changing your towns lust year about m often u the moon eliatiged.. .For instance, in July your terms were, for first three inser tions, $1,50 per square of ten lines, and 25 cents for each additional inser tion. Id August and Sentcmber Your terms wore 2 cents ftr each additional insertion, and in October you put it up for the first time te 50 cents; and on the 1st of January for the FIR3T time you stuck in that you would charge "double for tabular matter." This was after the publication of the no tices referred to, and there could be no double charging for "tabular matter" as to them. Now all this charging is easily understood when we recall the facts. It was the latter part of July, 1802, I first discovered and exposed your frauds. You immediately came boldly" about ine. Yes, you are a brave fellow.. I have heard before of your bravery have had some remar kable exhibitions of it in the Morgan war for instance. "You are going to tell' the truth" the truth, eh? Well, we hare had some illustrations of that too. "Not going to make anymore mean, cowardly insinuations" chT Oood for you. After we have roasted you a littlo. longer, you max come to some sense of propriety. Getting very independent of "county officers" and "county patronage." Glad to hear it. ' Have no doubt the County officers will rejoice, as there is not one of them , but regards you as the most loathsome "copperiibad" in the land "Your office belongs to you" "paid for it with money you earned before you came to the county." You have out in one of your abusive articles, in said that so often that it begins to look which, after giving me hark, you said 1 Tike a lie. One thing is 6ure you got you did all this work at the usual rates and "according to your published terms." This of course you knew would give rise to inquiry as to your terms, and as everybody know that af ter o notice is onco set up and tut in the paper it requires KO iAbor to continue it, you put down your terms for tho continuance to 2 cents a square. This you did to blind the public and mako everyone believe that you really "did the work as cheap as it could be." Besides, Treasurer Grace, never hav ing considered your paper worth ta king, and having beaten you . for the office, you did not consider him a very good friend, and doubtless feared he might not give you this "fat job" un less your terms were lower than the Sentinel's. But having as you suppo sed got the public satisfied, and secu red tho job, you put it up to 50 cents for each additional insertion. This you did to have the terms "all right" for the settlement with the Auditor. All this shulling and changing was done of course, to cover up your frauds, just as I said. But having se cured the job when your terms were down at two cents, you must stand to, them. So these notices really, ac cording to your own "printed terms" amounted only to the sum of $20.2S, anl no more. And certainlv. as four ours is ample time to do all the work, u pain at mat race you wouiu De very liberally paid only at the rate of about five dollars per hour; but you in sist on about $14 in ono and $17 per hour in tho other, and want people to think you aro honest and truthful. You honest!! You truthful!! You state nothing but facts! ! Out on such PREVARICATION and CHBATERY. But let us look a little farther into your dirty frauds. I have shown that your account for last year was three times as large as it ought to have been and it is reasonable to corcludo that all your charges since you came into the county were about at the same rate. On looking into the public records I find the "facts and figures" to show that: In '52-3 you ch'g'd $G87,05. right $220 02 53-4 ' 420,57' ' 140,19 '54-5 " 343 83 ' 114 CI '55-6 " 263,77 " 87 92 '56-7 " 541,31 18CU3 '57-8 ' 859,02 " 286 34 '58-9 750,48 ' 25016 '59-GO " 603,12 " 20104 60-1 551.57 183i86 '(Jl-2 " 582,83 194 28 '02-3 ' 600,55 " 200.18 All your ch'g's p'd,$l204,10 sh'ld be$2OG8,03 ' perted by a few brokea dowo, rotten I good "amellor," I can "smell oat trtSoe Makers about (fain xui lapthe 'what you allude to." Now I Inow t C204 10 Amount of your overcharge, $4136,07 Now i3 not this perfectly astounding to the moral sense of all" honest men? Just think of it. The people of Har rison county taxed $4,136 to be put into your pocket over and above what your work fairly amounted to accor ding TO YOUR OWN PRINTED TERMS after paying for the work of a boy in your office at the rate of $5 per hour. Out on such corrupt rascality. Why, sir, you have been sucking tho blood from tKe body politic 80 long that you .have assumed the very shape .'and appearance--the humped back and puck ered mouth most loathsome thing in cre ationa vile, dirty, filthy Leech. The Commissioners ought to sue you and compel you to repay this money back to tho County; and if they do not attend to it promptly, the people ought to assemble in their primary meetings and require the Commissioners to at tend to you. You undertake to justify yourfrauds by reference to the terms of papers of Belmont and Coshocton coun ties. This proves nothing for you. They doubtless make their account out within their terms. But your chargos are three times as high, as I have shown, as your terms. You say you will give me ten dollars if I will make affidavit that I told you you ought to repay the $100 you charged and ob tained for unauthorizedly publishing the receipts and expenditures in 1856 and thaj I proposed to return to you tho feo you paid me for getting the or der made by the Commissioners. Come on with your money and you can have the affidavit; and if the Commissioners want it they caa hare it for nothing. You know my statement of the tacts in .regard to that matter ia the exact truth, and you need not try to lie out of it. ' ' :, ;". You next say you are going to "talk rich somewhere, and , I rather "guess the above ficts an 1 figures show when, where and how! That a great office oi yours great aiuir worth ; you think $2500. Let us see! You g;iy your annual receipts anj oaly $2,0 )0, Of this you get from the County from $(500 to $000. Your other advertising is worth as much more, say $1,200 for both. That leaves 8S00 for vour na- . . - V 1 per: ; Well, you may have 400 sub scribers, perhaps. Now to get up such a subscription list might be worth $100.' That would be a high price. Those who have examined your press, materials, type, &c, say $800 would bo a big price for thein. Say for them and subscription list. $1,000, That's liberal. Now pray what is tho other $1,500 for? You answer for die "crood will of tho establishment." Ah, pray what is that? I don't exactly under stand. Let U3 see, Oh, yes, I under stand. That means theoPDortunitvto "8KIK" the county outjoffrom $600 to $000 per annum. That's it, exactly. A .pretty good investment. About $200 is for work at $5 per hour and the balance is clean, clear profits. Well, Dick, you are a pretty good financier. Suppose you "get the principal of the High School to cipher out" the per centage. But really you ought to change the name of youi creat tnoar. It onrht to bo called "Ilatton's Private Quar. rel's Advocate," and I suawst a3 a motto "No replies to 'our' attacks ad mitted in this paper." These changes being made, with you for editor (a man you know of grea t exporieneo in tho "language" of Brothels) it would be a capital organ for your old friend and fellow countryman, Henry Ai Wise, whose ghost seems to trouble you of late. But you say about two years ago I 'wanted to arroBt Mr. Allen and , close his establishment. This is not true You had better see your eavesdropping friend and get the real facts. Perhaps in making this inquiry you ray leara that I was more recently very much in favor of report ing some other'gpntleman's case. Well, the 5th. of January is co'ming, and when you arrive at "Phillipi," you will doubtless find me there. If the "rot ten pumpkin" should last that long, it is doubtful if it can be handled cither by or with a' "pitchfork" or "hoop polo." So good evening, and pass along to your hole and tribe, practising the lock-step when it suits your fancy, and trading your coat if you wish for so.me thing you like better. Yours, truly, S. B.

You have endured brat and cold ; have retrained from lust and wine; have abjured pleasure, or rather have found it in labor and study. Your vigils have "outwalchtd the bear " But youthful ambition is eager and impa tient. It tees nothing but Fame's Proud Temple, and forgets that it shines afar. It seea not the long and wearisome leagues of hill and valley, of forest and rock, of thicket and juogle which lie botween the goddess and ber worshipers. . It counts every mo ment of delay end difficulty on tho way, as a moment lost. There is, Indeed, a false god dess whose fame is near and easy of access . Hard by is the alter ot Mammon.

Not such let vour Ambition be; but rather that which Pope and after bim, Lord Mansfield, proclaimed "the pur suit of nobis en4 by noble means," and yours, too, that popularity which follows, not that which is run after. But te obtain this you most learn early that most difficult of all leS9OBST0 labor akd to wait. At twenty you think lorty an old age.

Nerve your hearts now for the struggle. But, remember that ability, however eminent, and intellectual discipline, however exact , are not enough. Withont pure morals, correct habits and fix ed integrity, you can not endure tho trial. Be virtuous. Be piou?. I use the word in no narrow secttwian, or theological sense; but in that which Virgil means when he calls iEneas "J7('uj"a piety which belorgs to no one sent, nor clime, nor time, nor coun try, but which every where, and at all times, renders to God and self and man ftbatover is due , and dos it in the very spirit of the Sermon on tho Mount. .

Algernon 8ydoey died as convicted traitor; bat In a little ADDRESS OK HON. C. L. VALLANDIGHAfil, TO TUB Students of the University, November 14, 1803. Notwithstanding the very inclement wea ther on Saturday, a large body of students ot tbe University of Michigan came down on tho morning train for a formal visit to Mr. Vallandigham. Tbe proceded to Windsor at eleven o'clock, where tbe large dining hall of the U irons House had been set apart for the meeting. The hall was crowded, there being present,' in addition to tbe students, several prominent citizens of Detroit. Mr. 'Vallandigham was' addressed on be half of the students by Mn C. A. Buekirk. This address was eloquent and patriotic We regret that want of space prevents its publication. At the conclusion of the ad dress Mr. A, 8. McAlistcr, chairman of the Delegation, introduced Hon. C. L Vallan digham, who, thanking the Students for the compliment of a visit, addressed them as fol lows: " 1 thank yiu, young gentlemen, for this visit. I thank you, sir, especially, Mr. Bus kirk, for tbe compliments so handsomely ex pressed on behall of your fellows. The ap plause of the young is tbe highest praise They speak the language oi the coining gen oration, and anticipate the judgment of pos terity. To that judgment, If it so be that my name snail chance to live i the record of these times, I long since appealed; and, meantime, am content to abide tha scrutiny which must precede it. Without . further personal allusion, therefore, in reply, allow me to pass to another subject t and, if it be in my power, thus to change a visit of cere mony into one perhaps not altogether with out profit. i You are students. Some ot you still pur sue your classical and scientific studies; oth ers preparo yourselves for professional pur suits; all ol yon are eager to rush, into the great world, and be men. Yet, in a little whife, when you have borne its buffotings with lusty sinews, not one of you but will exclaim with, a sigh, "Ah! happy years, who would not be a boy , again.". ..,...,'.(. . . ; But In tbe battle of life there is no rotreat and the brave spirits among you will press forward, and the weak falter and perish: and just in proportion as you are disciplined ev ery way, you will be ready to meet whale- loriuuu may oeime jou. yataun ttit tune." 1 wbilo his execution rii idjuds! Judicial politics, except the passions and personalities which they excite. If not able to argue up on principles, measures politics, debate not at all. If yon can not Roar do not creep. Whoever discusses only raon in politics, is always largely a slanderer. Principles, not men, is not, indeed, altogether a sound max im; though little liable to be abused since personalities always make up 8 5 large and controlling an element in mere partisan po lilies. Better say principles and men. It is easy to be a politician or demagogue Sail With the wind; float with tbe current; look not to the compass, neither lift up your ye to the Heavens where the constella'i.ins and the pole star bright, glorious emblems of uod and truth and right still shine, stoaJ fast, immovable, just as they shone in the beginning of time.- Poe'a naicitar. So it is with the demagogue. But tho statesman must be made as well as born, llis voyace 13 through mid ocean and in storm, lie sails under orders, llis port is ascertained and prescribed before be sets out, and it is his duty to reach it; and so like the majestic ocean steamer, no sails on, und " Against the wind , a gainst the tide' Still steadies with an uprishlkeel." Demosthenes, more than two thousand years ago, in his great oration for the crown, well distinguished between these two char acters, declaring that whilo they were alike in nothing, they diiiered ch icily in this that the statesman boldly and honestly proclaim ed his opinion before the event, andj thus mauo miuseii responsible iy lor'une, to tne times, to his countrymen, to the world; while the sycophant or demagogue was silent -till the event had happened; and then governed bis speech and his conduct accordingly. And now allow me to add, that though you may be patriots and yei not statesmen, the great statesman is always a patriot. His love of country is as well a principle as an emotion. Duty enters largely into ithence it is stable, enduring. It is not sensational--, certainly not a mere feeling of gratitude; least of all, in the meaning of that word as defined by Dr. Johnson: "a lively sense of favors yet to be received." lie loves his country both wisely and well. He never sacrifices her real though more remote inter ests to a popular clamor, and still less at the demand of those whe hold tbe power. Nei ther will be corrupt the virtue nor tarnish the honor of his country to serve her mere sordid interests. Rather will he imitate the example of Aiistides, who, reported to the Atnenians mat a certain proposition was in deed for their immediate advantaeo. hut 'would bring dishonor upon the State coun- seiod tnat tney reject it. I bsve said nothing about "loyalty." .It is a word which belongs justly, but only to kingly governments. I can comprehend loy alty to a king, and especially to a , queen; but ns an American, I choose to adhere to tho good and honest old republican word, "patriotism," and to cherish (be virtue which it has always been used to express. ' Aspire, then, young gentlemen, yon who would pursue a publio aourse, to bo patriot statesmen..
