THE COtflBfJ ELECTION. But two week remain, until the voters of Ohio will be called upon to decide up on the political issues now before them. It is for them to say, whether tliey will in dorse the doctrines of the foroalled De mocracy of the present day ; or by their votes, say to Ahe South, and to 'Democrat ;ic (iemagoguea" in the North, we wil ; not betray our best interests, and degrade .ourselves, by becoming your willing tools jo carrying into effect your corrupt de signs. ; Toe Democratic party in Ohio are ma' iing fayne ta efforts to dodge the truth They have not the manliness openly to '.avow thm.r principle and place the issues of the day before the Deonle in their Jtrue Jigbt, but seek to eo8pe theirjudg jnnt by skulking beneath the fog, of .their jiumeious and unparalleled falsehoods' and Misrepresentations. Their journals .dare jnpve,p,me ,ojit .boldly, and declare that they endorse the Dred Scott " decision with all its monstrosities. Yet they have seea fit to make it a part of their political faith in their State Convention, and their Candidate for Governor lias indorsed that platform. Now they tell us that it not one of the issues of the present Campaign ; and with their characteristic duplicity and disregard for the truth : ad vocate one set of principles in their plat form?, and another in their public speech- i and their Journals. In their platform ley endorse , the ."Dred Scott" deoision and make it an issue in the coming elec tion, and tp the people they say, ' It is a past issue ; it is a decision of the highest tribunal in the land, and you must not gainsay it." Strange indeed; that the dicta of a. court in a case in which, by ita. own decision it had no jurisdiction. should become so time-honored and ven erable, in Jess than a year, that it is trea son in a citizen of a Sovereign State, to doubt its soundness, Has it become hal lowed before the people have had time to read it I If it is not an issue in the pres ent campaign, why insert it in their plat form, and require their candidates to swear allegiance to it ? and having made it an issue there, why not make it one be fore the people ? Simply because they dare nof stand upon it in phio. Jt would betray their Southern features and they must be hidden here, Her freemen must be wooed with a face wreathed in smiles, and lips that drop in ' honied accents," their fairest falsehoods. It was made to convince the South and the ' powers that be," at Washington City, that the De mocracy of Ohio were prepared to bow in humble submission to their will upon all occasions; and to extend the "hospi tality of their jails" to every slave-driver who wished to incarcerate bis human chattels.

The true principles of the party, laid down in tjie platform made by the Republicans themselves, are invulnerable and the Democracy know it. They do not attempt to controvert them, but like the dog Noble, they spend day after day in barking at empty holes. Let them not deceive us.

Wake up voters of Ohio, and let them know that you are not to be imposed upon by suob bare faced trickery, that you will not etir render your rights, guarantied to y ou by the Constitution, that their itching fingers shall not again clutch the treasury, whieh (as proven by one of their own men,) they so ruthlessly plundered. Qnce more, rally to the polls, AND THEIR DE FEAT IS SURE. Payne Without a Sham. The fol lowing is reported as a part of Payne' speech in Cleveland : Another result will folfc-w our victory Tliia eleciinnl and that will be the repeal of tne naoeas corpus act, auu ine provi sions refusing our iails to our Southern brethren to keep their slaves in. Tbere is no sham about that. It i straight out pro-slavery of the meaner and lowest descr'iDtion. Such a man i a mere lick soittle to Southern overseers If there be a Democrat leit wno is an honoat onnonent of slavery, he would scorn to touch a ballot with his name on, Can it be that an anti-Slavery Democrat would be caught in company witn sucn a mere minion of slavery T We trust this sneech will be enough to bring every Republican in Ohio to the polls. Were is a candidate lor uovernur who sat be will leneal the Habeas Corpus Actfand turn our jails over to the Slave drivers !

Treasurer's Office, Jefferson Co,, Sept. 20th, 1857. sept30:6tw JQHN McADAMS.Treasurer. Another Chapter in Locofoco State FinancieringMaking- Deposits in a Bank after it's known to have Failed, Bead! Read! The last and most desperate dodge of the Dred Scott sham Democracy to prop their totering fortunes, was the produc tion of a private note written by Govern nor Chase to John G. Breslin, which they ailege induced Breslin to select the City Bank of Cincinnati as a place of de posit and safe keeping of the Public Money. Breslin himself never alleged such cause, and do man of sense ever be lieved or could believe that the letter of Gov. Chase induced Mr. Breslin thus to act. At the time the letter was written, the Bank was in good standing. It was written in December '51. No public de posit was made in that Bank until the spring of 1852. Breslin, in his annual reportof December 27th, 1855, says he selected ''the Commercial Bank at Tol edo, and the City Bank of Cincinnati as depositories for the Canal Tolls, in pur suance or the act passed march 23d, 1840. He savs further, "At the opening of navigation in 1852, in pursuance of the Act referred to, the Collector at Cin cinnati was directed to deposit the Tolls collected by him in the City Bank of Cin cinnati. At various times deposits were made in this Bank by the Treasurer to procure exchange for the payment of in terest and redemption of bonds. In De cember, 1854, (three years after Chase's letter was written, remember,) this Bank failed to meet the drafts given fhe Treas urer for the amount of 879,81195." Here, then, we have the official statement of Mr. Breslin that he selected the City Bank in pursuance of a law of 1840, and not because of the private note of Gov ernor Chase, as the Locofoco desperadoes now allege, By the deposition of S. Robert, Presi dent of this City' Bank of Cincinnati, which is printed in the appendix to the Senate journal for 1857, page 413, it ap pe&rs that the Bank failed to meet the drafts of the Treasurer in August, 1853, amounting to $76,811.95, and that these drafts were renewed again and fell due in December, 1854, and were again pro tested and not paid, as Breslin acknowl edges in his report of 1855, quoted above. It is clear, that this Bank actually failed in August, 1853, and notwilhstaningd the large amount of public money .there in deposited, the drafts of the State drawn upon it were protested and the State dis honored. What will be said by the tax payers of Ohio when they are told that this Bank was continued by the Locofoco State Tieasurer as a public depository until July 3d, 1855, nearly two years AFTER IT HAD BECOME BANK RUPT AND FAILED! President Rob ert, in his deposition sworn to October 1st, 1856, says that the State drafts of this City Bank were protested and non paid "prior to or in August, 1853." The concern finally shut up and ceased operations as a bank some time in the pnng of 1854. Though it was known to the State Treasurer, and doubtless to Morgan, Medill Si Co., as early as August load, when the btate drafts amounting to seventy-nine thousand dollars and over were protested for non-payment, yet Breslin kept on depositing there up to July 3d, 1855, and from May 30 th, 1854 to Julv3d, 1855, he actually de posited in that Banl1 the enormous sum of $75,369.90. It is onlr necessary: to add to this cat alogue of crime that the private deposi tors Aaue all been paid by the bank, but not one cent ol the State s deposits hav been repaid, and it is fair to presume that while Mr. breslin was making his depos us there, the money was used to pay privato depositors, and keep up other financial arrangements. We hear "of some other curious matters connected with inese operations: ui certain properties being held in trust, which we shall not i . now particularise, lest it should prevent or head an investigation which may now or hereafter be instituted by the State. The above record is enough of itself to show how the people's money was squan dered and suggests a reason why certain Locofoco leadars desire to raise false is sues, and throw the- weight of their own crimes upon innocent men. "There's a good time coming boys, wait a lit tle longer." Telegraphic. Baltimore, Sept. 26. Baltimore Banks.-The suspension since ten o'clock has been total, with the exception of ac commodating their customers with a few dollars in change.

Evening Uur banks remained strong to the close of business hours, and there are no signs of a suspension. Money in the street is largely sought for, an J de mands a hisher late of interest. Wheeling, Sept. 26. At a meeting of the citizens of this city, held this morning, it was unanimously resolved that the banks of this city be requested to immediately suspend specie payments un til the business interests of the community would justify a resumption. This action was taken in consequence of the heavy tun that has recently been made upon the banks by foreign brokers and bankers.. The banks are abundantly able to meet their liabilities and no loss will be sus tained by note holders or depositors in consequence of the suspension. Philadelphia, Sept, 27.
