Clairsville Independent Republican; Republican State Convention. At a meeting of the Republican State Central Committee, in conjunction with the Republican members of the Legisla tore, and other distinguished Republicans from various parts of the Stale at Co lumbus on the fourth of January, 1857, after mature consideration, it was resolv ed that it was expedient to hold the State Convention of the Republican party of Ohio for the nomination of a State Ticket at Columbus, on the 13th of August next In conformity to this request, the Stute Central Committee announce to the Re publicans of Ohio that the delegates from the various counties of the Stste will as semble in the City of Columbus, on Wednesday, the 12ih day of August next, at 10 o'clock A. ML, for the pur pose of putting in nomination candidates for Hie following offices : for Governor, Lieutenaut Governor, Secretary of State, Treasurer of State, one Supreme Court Judge, and one member of the Board of Public Works, and the transaction of such other business as may be proper for the occasion. ' Tho Republicans of the several coun ties of Ohio, unless they shall otherwise agree, will meet at their county seats on Saturday, the 8th day of August, being the Saturday preceeding the day of said State Convention, and elect delegates thereto in the proportion of one delegate for every five hundred votes given for the Republican candidate for President at the election in November, 1850. and one for each fraction of votes equal to, or over one hair 01 said number, Tbe total num ber ol delegates by this basis will be 377, and from each County will number as (allows We omit the apportionment except for this immediate section of the State, to wit; Carroll 4 .Columbiana 7 I Harri son 4 , Jefferson 5 ; Tusearwas 0 ; Bel mont 4.3 . .--- : V.

At an early hour the Court room was crowded with all manner of persons, anx ious to catch a glimpse of the prisoners. At half past two o'clock, his Honor, Judge McClure asked the counsel if they were redy to try tho case 5 when Mr. Fleniken arose and stated that he was not piepared, in. consequence of the absence of material and important witnesses whom he had expected to be present. II is honor remarked that inasmuch as the Court had issued processes at the ex pense of the county, for the purpose of having the witnesses for the defence brought into Court, there certainly could not be any blame attached to them ; aud as there had been no legal exceptions taken to proceeding at once to trial, the Court had nothing to pass upon ; and as the orders of Court in respect to bringing witnesses to the stand wete now iu pro cess of execution, it was evident they would all be here before they were called upon. At twenty minutes to 3 u'clotk the Court ordered the prisoners to be brought in, and placed on trial. The Common wealth was represented by F. II. Collier, Esq., District Attorney, S. C. Winigard, Esq., and R. Biddle Roberts ; Charlotte Jones and Henry Fife were represented by Thomas Howard, Esq , and Messrs, R. P. Fleniken and Thomas M. Mar shall, Esq., appeared on behalf of Mon roe Stewart. The Clerk was about to proceed with tle reading of the bill of indictment to the prisoners, when Mr. Fleniken arose, and stated that he had been waiting for some time for the arrival of his collegue. Mr. Marshall, and that he would now make a motion that Monroe Stewart, who is jointly indicted with the other parties, be tried separate ; urging as reasons for such a motion, that the defence which he intended to set up for his client, would be of a different nature from that made by tho others , and further in the challeng ing of jurors, where a prisoner has the right to challenge pre-emptory, twenty jurors and as many more as he can show cause for, there oiust arise great embar rassments iu the present case, should all the prisoners be tried jointly. The learn ed counsel continued with a leng.hy and able argument insuppeort of his motion, during which time the prisoner, on be half of whom he was speaking ; listened with attentive interest to every word that was spoken ; while the other two seem ed unconcerned, and scanned with an eye of indifference, the spectators that filled the Court Room. R. Biddle Roberts, on behalf of the prosecution, replied 10 the arguments of the counsel for the defence, by. stating that he deemed it indispensably necessa ry to have a joint trial ou this occasion, as the offence had been committed joint ly, and the prisoners had been so indicted. The whole current of Pennsylvania deci sions, went to confirm the rule. The only precedents in the Books, on which the defence rests their authority for ask ing a separate trial fur the defendants, is that of Judge Washington, It is there fore entirely at the discretion of the Court to say whether or not the prisoners shall have a scpaiate trial. The Journal of the 4th inst., gives a very full account of the proceedings up to Fiiday last. Much difficulty was ex perianced in the empannelling of a jury. On the 2nd day this was accomulibhed. 1 Up to Friday the Court was employed in tfce examination of wiinenses. The court is proceeding upon a joint trial of the par lies, and it is yet a problim of doubtful solution, how the case will result. That the parties accused are guilty, we have but little doubt, but wheather the testimo ny will be sufficiently clear to induce the jury to such a conclusion is somewhat doubtful. '; We hope to have further in. telligence upon the subject, to communi cate before going to press. Washington City, July 3. To obvi ate embarrassments and inconveniences under the Independent Treasury Law and the supplemental act of March last, the secretary of itie Treasury has issued a circular to depositories and disburse of the public moneys, making practicable kite provision that disbursing officers suall draw Tor the amounts deposited, on ly made in favor of the person to whom payment is to be made in pursuance of the law and instructions, except when pay ments are to be made in sums under 20. The Department discountenances the use of disbursing officers and checks an a means of remittance from one section ol' country to another, and instructs that in all cases where, as here, disbursing offi cers shall receive money for ihe Treasury drafts, remitted upon specifiu estimates for immediate expenditure, they will at once disburse the money for the purposes and objects estimated, without delay, and the inconvenience of placing it in a pub lic depository, unless it be near at hand, in which case such deposits may be made. The Tonowauda Indians had an inter view with the Secretary of the Interior this morning and retired with Ins assu ranee that no immediate steps will be la ken for their removal from the Reserva tion they now oecupr, and that, if practi cable, they shall be secured id their pre em riomes. . , , , Mark L. Means has 'been appointed Register of the Land Office at Warsaw, JThe following article is from the Ohio State Journal, and as it. presents Ex-Auditor Morgan in his true character before the public, we transfer it to bur columns. We have known Morgan for twenty years, and we regtet to say that for the last five years we have been com pelled to regard him as s wire-working, dishonest political trickster. Ex-Auditor Morgan taught in hit own trap'IRs guilty knowledge of the Defalcation, and his tffort to Re elect me uejauuer. Ex-Auditor Morgan, in his Newark Advocate of this week, tries to get out of the dilemma wnich his party seal and want of candor has placed him; but like a man struggling in a morass, every step he takes only sinks htm the deeper in the mire and dirt. We have no desiro to help him out or sink him in. We shall let him work, and report his progress. His own acknowledgement proves his want of official honesty, His attempt to implicate Governor Chase and Auditor Wright, thows his want of personal can dor and truthfulness. He reminds us of Jacques Strop, in the dram of Robert Macaire. The two were thieves and as sociates; Robert did the bold, heavy busi ness; Jerques hid Ihe plunder and did something on his own account in the way of picking pockets. We wul dau- gerrotype him. When the defalcation in the Treasury was discovered. Mr. Morgan came to Co lumhtia from Newark, ami while here, acknowledged that he knew of this defal cation, and that it existed when he was in office as Auditor, and was caustd by Mr. ttreslin. tie was asked bv Gover nor Chase to act as one of the examining committee, and he declined, giving as a reason lor declining, that he had previous engagements which would preveut his serving. He hurries back to Newark, and wiites a couple of articles charging the default upon Mr. Gibson, and im plicating Unvertior Lhase aud Auditor Wright in the transaction; a transaction WHICH II E SAYS HE KNBW WAS THE WORK of AIR. iiRESLiN, and which acciued while he himself was Auditor, Medill Governor, and Trevitt Secretary of State. This fact we charged upon him, and we also showed that he had lost the State some three hundred and seventy-five thousand dollars, hy refusing to sell the storks of the Little Miami and Mad Riv er Railroads owned then and owned now by the State, amounting to $616,800, when he could have got par for them. He refuged to do it because, as he said, lie could not trust the money with Mr. Breslin. We also showed that he ac cused Mr. Breslin of ' being corrupt as hell." We also accused him of trying to borrow money from the State of Ohio to meet the interest payment of the public debt, because he did uot believe that it wou d be met by his colleague in ihe Treasury, as he knew that the State mon ey in Mr. Breslin'u hands had been used for illtgiiiamie, illegal and wrongful purposes. All this, we charged upon Auditor Morgan, not. us he would have his readers believe, to find fault with him for those acts, but to show his dastardly meanness, and disingeniousness in try ing, fr a Jiw party purpose, to change the resfousibiliiy from the guilty to in nocent partie. If any act CHn be mean er or more morally criminal than this, we cliould like to know what that act is. It is simply the same as if Mr, Morgan saw a mau commit a murder, or a theft, and he should set to work to arrest, con vict and sentence an innocent person to the callows or the penitentiary. Be knowing all the time that the person so tried, convicted and punished, was in nocent, and that the crime was commit ed by another, and knew who that OTHER PERSON WAS. This is the charge we bring against Mr. Morgan, and lei him escape from it if he can. He makes no attempt to escape in his paper ol this week, but on the contrary, he acknowledges all that (re charge upon him, and he accuses us of attacking him for having, while Auditor, ascertained that Mr. Breslin was a de faulter. Here is his language: "As a punishment for our audacity in not keeping 'mum' on the new defalca tion, the Columbus Stale Journal of Saturday, has two mortal columns charg ed to the brim with a decoction of bitter ness and denunciation, designed for our total demolition. We have read the ponderous assault with feelings of min gled pity and contempt. Tho writer, with characteristic stupidity, devotes more than one-half of the entire length of his article, to a studied and laborious effort t show that the censurable management of the State Treasury under Mr. Breslin, met our hearty and unceasing condemna tion throughout the entire four years of our service as State Auditor. The con demnation thus alleged, is not only un reservedly admitted, but it is a circum stance which we revert to with heart felt satisfaction, and we are glad that in ihe blindness of its venom, the Stale Jour nal has at last brought this cherished fact to a knowledge of its readers. In its very awkwardness, it has done us an in estimable favor, which it took admirable care never before to confer." No one knows better than Morgan that he was not expected to keep 'mum."- lie knows that he was expected to sneak. and to speak boldly about this monstrous dedication. We expected he would speak, and speak the truth, and also ac knowledge his own complicity 111 the af fair, and to humbly ask forgiveness for ins Bins. We did not expect him to falsi fy the truth, and Titus Oates like, to mouni me witness stanu ami swear away j the reputation of innocent parlies that he might obtain the bribe of party favor and grow fat upon the thirty pieces of silver. We ask . particular attention of our readers to the above extiact. It is a plain and direct acknowledgement that he knew "ofthc censurable management of the Treasury under Mr, Breslin," and that it met his "unceasing condemnation," and yet, what are the facts succeeding tnis guilty Knowledge! The four, Gov ernor Medill, Auditor Morgan. Secrets ry Trevitt, and Treasurer Breslin, were sitting cheek by iowl for four years in the "rat row block, drawing their pay and serving the Slate, It was known 10 each of them-that tbe public moneys were be off squandered, first by Mr. Breslin in getting up Wild Cat Banki, by Medill in fiaying for private services out of the pub io chest, and Auditor Morgan auditing his bills for the payment of men who nev er did a day's service to the State, and all the while the four were intrigueing to be nominated by the Locofoco Stale Con vention for re-election to their several of fices, and these intriguers succeeded. They were re-nominated anJ they run 011 the sama ticket, and they were indi vidually and severally, very badly defeat ed. Now, bear in mind, that Morgan says in the above extract what he had previously said in this city, that Breslin was a defaulter, by "his censurable man agement of the Slate Treasury.' If so and there is no doubt of it why did the Locofoco party renominate him for Stato Treasurerj Did the Convention know what Morgan says Ae knew, that Bres in was a defaulter! If so, then they were equally gmky with Mr. Bretlin in trying to rk-klkct a van whom they KNEW TO BR a fCBLIC DEFAULTER 1 and every member if that Convention is a paity to the crime, and it chows that they did not care how .much of ihe people's money was stolen bj a Democratic off! cer. Will Mr. Morgan say that the Con veiuion which nominated himself and Mr. Breslin, knew Mr. Breslin to be a de faulter I Probably he will not ey iu Then we will ask him why he didn't let tne Convention know that he was a de faulter, and tell thenref his "unceasing cx'iuleinnHtion ' of In course t He knew, for ho mvs sit. that Mr. Ureslin was a defaulter: why didn't he let the conven tion knoie itf Why was he "mum" on that occasion, and so garrulous on the present f The suppression of the truth by Mor gan, and hit consenting to go on the same ticket with Mr. Breslin, for a re election, fixes upon Morgau a guilt in ihe premiss, which in morals is very lit tle less criminal than the acts ot Mr. Breslin. Mr Morgan has done all the wrong which Mr. Gibson is accused of doing; that is, he suppressed the facts of the defalcator , of whioh he had a knowl edge; while Mr. Morgan far transcends Mr. Gibson in responsibility for the de fault, inasmuch as he did not oppose Mr Breshn's nomination, but suffered his own name to go on the tickit with his, and did what he could before and at the election to give him a further hold for two years upon ihe Treasvry of ihe State. In virw of these facts are we not right in ascribing to Morgan the char acter of Jacques Strop, in the thieving drama of Rubeit Macaire 1 f3T It seems that the only hope of the bogus Democracy to destroy the Ameii can patty is by continued and untiring persecution. In the early stages of its existence, they did not attempt to combat its principles, but finding that they had the weak side of the argument they abandoned that mode of opposition, and adopted the one ever used by their allies, the rotnaii Catholics, viz: unrtlenling persecution. Finding that their argu ments (iu y tended to strengthen the Amer ican pnrty, they gave up reasoning and undertook to drive men from its ranks by cruelty and by ridicule. Every vile and villiauous epithet was applied to the mem bers of that party, and they were pro scribed in office, in labor, and in every position they were made to suffer for their principles' sake, where Democracy had the power to inflict the punishment. Like all good causes, Americanism has its bitter persecutors men who for nierci nnry motives, oMhe promotion of their own ambitious echeim-s, would Arnold like, betray, their country into the hands of its enemies, or, had they it in their power to do so, would cut the throat of every man who dared advocate a princi ple that would conflict with their views ! politics! . With this spirit of persecution, all the evil which is done is immediately charg ed upon Americans. If a riot occurs in any part of our country, it is sounded abroad by an unscrupulous loeofoco press that Americans incited it, and that Amer icans are responsible for the blood which was shed. All murders, riots, arsons, &c, which tako place are alike attributed to the American party, no matter bv whom, or for what purpose they may have been perpetrated. We sbolud not be surprised to hear all earthquakes, failures of the crops, distruction of property by light' ning, freshets, &c, attributed to the A' merican party by the Democracy. We think their system ot persecution, thus far, has availed them but little. Not withstanding the taunts and jeers of the enemy, Americanism has gone on " grow ing with its growth and ttrengthening with its strength" until it is now a mighty power, irresistable in Kentucky, as it is destined to be in every other Stale in the Union. Persecution only strengthens the attachments of its members to their priu ciples, and makes them more active and zealous in their labors to defeat their en emy, uy persecution Americanism can not be crushed out, it cannot be awed by threats, or checked in its good works by defeat. It must ultimately triumph over all prejudices and parties if we would maintain our liberties and our union ol States. Ashland American Union. later about the State Treasurers.

Mr. Editor : - This article may be deemed an intru sion on your patienoe, snd condemned for occupying so muoh space in your columns (if it should be so truly fortunate as to be placed there,) that might be filled with more interesting and instructive matter. But pardon the anxiety of one that de sires to contribute a taite in elevateing the national ' standard of his country, by asserting the divine rights of mankind, in opposition to human slavery, and all the concomitant evils, attendant thereon. It requires not the wisdom of a Solo mon, or ihe sagacity ot a Pitt, nor the impassioned eloquence of a Wilberforce to convince the Democratic power of our Union, that slavery is a curse of the most fearful magnitude, or that it is their duty to feailesslv resist its farther extension and influence over our destiny , but with a just conception of its enormity, oease not to battle, the monster until every stain is obliterated from the crest of our na tional honr, and the hallowed songs of freedom be clnnted from one extremity of our Union to tho otner. Such vices are imposed upon a country when its people are comparatively ignorant of their inevi table consequences, and when they bow to the shrine of power, and tamely acqui esce in the opinions of those in authority. By reference to the history of the past, we will find that almost all the great so cial and political evils that afflict mankind owe their origin to that period in the world's history when the masses were swayed by superstition, and unconscious of their own ability to resist, or yet assert their rights as royal subjects. It has been remarked with peculiar force aud emphases, that the iremendious power of the vatician, gave to that relig ion, every element of strength and solidity, and almost universally an influence over the destinies of the world. Hence, when we contemplate the an cient history of Europe, the "dark ages" are revealed before us pregnant with all the vices, and conspicuous for all the enormities that an ignorant and en slaved people could possibly submit to, by the machinations and effrontery of a reckless and unprincipled priesthood. But when Ltuher duff'd the pontifical robes, and boldly and fearlessly waged an uncomprQmiseing war against the gov ernment of St. Peters, a faint ray of sun shine began to penetrate the dark recess es of Catholic barbarism, and the flimsy net of pontificial authority that hadarested upon the cupridity of the people so long, gave way to the genial influences of Chris tianity anil intelligence), und the dark por tentious clouds of superstition dispersed from the horizon of Northern Europe the people rejoiced for their timely de liverauce from being bourid to the "chariot-wheels" of Rome, and justly proclaim ed Ltuher the "Reformer of the world." It is a remarkable truth of history, that all these great nationei evils were insti tuted and nourished when , the masses were entirely ignorant of the first princi ples of self government, or at least when they lacked the foresight to trace out the evils that would necessarily follow jto their own enslavement and disadvantage, and what a stigma it cast upon the nation, that with a false notion of political and national wealth, festered the illegitimate infant, until it reached an herculian man hood of strength and importance, when it defied the ability to abolish, and even threatened the government with dissolu tion, and the worst of anarchy, it they dared attempt to lop the disgraceful ex cresence from the body politic. But Christianity awakened the slumbering fac ulties of mankind, and by the knowledge of their own inherent strength, the popu lar will assumed a power that made these tyrants of the will, quail and, tremble with fear, and accede to them (hose lib- erties that their ancestors had submitted to be! deprived of, through ignorance oT their natural rights. Thus the institution of American sla very was fastened upon our country, when our fathers were too feeble lore- sist it, and even before they were, aware of its dangerous and subversive; tenden cles. The North with a conviction of its wrongs, unloosed the fetters of her'op' pressed slaves and aet them free. The South deaf to the appeals of humanity to the agonies of the suffering bondman to her own interest and emolument, still holds on with a bold and death-like te naciy. But thank Heaven 1 because such evils have been endured for centuries, is no reason why they should be endured any longer. A people will ofiimes sub mit to tbe greatest impositions rather than assert their, rights and boldly maintain them. . Yet there is a time when forbear ance ceases, to be a virtue ;,when - this peculiar institution clogs the massive wheels of government when it assumes lb dictate and control the minds of those that are essentially free we must assert that the lime, has come, the auspicious time ' when freedom shall be heard, and the glorious language of the declaration of our Independence shall be realized by all that claim' the United States as their home) and the -."Star "spangled banner' the emblem of their.' freedom. - But thin hot. reader, we advocate .an appeal physical strength that wf eelr, their K1nrlthfit m tvnnl1 nliarA In tiaf.tlA bp - r ' rav one nortion of our countrvmen against the other far from it.

Corkeived and nur tured in darkness, especially to benefit the few at the expense of the many, they grew to such a fearful magnitude, that nothing but the vigilant measures and tho urgent demands of the people could mitigate or abolish them Yet in those countries where the mxjnriiies have the least influence, slavery has been abol ishedand the rights of the humble Alri can have been maintained. ..
