REPUBLICAN MEETINGS. Hon. James Monroe and Gen. A. C. Vories addressed the citizens of Millcrsburg at the Court House, on Tuesday afternoon and evening. Ac cording to announcement previously made, quite a number of the Repub licans of the county assembled in the Court House to hear Hon. Jas. Monroe and Gen. A. C. Vories make addresses on the party issues. There was some misunderstanding as to the time of holding the meeting. Mr. Monroe, undestanding the appointment to be for the evening, did not arrive until about five o'clock. At half past two, however, the Court House being nearly full, Dr. Enos was appointed chairman, who stated the object of the meet ing, and introduced Gen. Vories to the audience. The General ad dressed the house for more than an hour, in a clear and convincing manner. He began by saying, that there were no new issues apparent ly involved in the present canvass. He said the Democracy of the country find fault with, not because they are actually opposed to them, but to fight the party in power. He then went on to show the different arraignments of the party in power as gathered from the prominent Democratic speakers, to-wit: Judge Thurman, Gen. Morgan and Gen Cnry, and to meet the objections made to the centralization of power in the General Government Also the method of raising money by bonds, to Land Grants, to Railway System, to taxation of bonds, &c, &.C Gen. Vories' speech "was good from beginning to end, and was free from all slander and vulgarism which so often characterize the speeches of the Democratic orators. Hie meeting then adjourned to assemble again in the evening to listen to Prof. Monroe, providing he should get here. A little after five, hand bills announced the fact that he had arrived and would speak in the Court House in the evening. the second ringing of the bell the Court Room was filled with those who were anxious to hear our next Representative in Congress. We missed his first remarks, but gather from what wo heard, that lie com menced by saying that leaders in all civilized nations have a work to per ioral, wnicn wonc consists in ac quiring that instinct of soul, as were, which enables them to know what the masses of the people need, He proceeded to give the history the two parties during the last ten years, showing that the Democratic yartj had changed 'from issue to jS(ue. He compared the party now Tvith the party during Gen. Jack sons' and Thos. Jefferson's time. He show'Ctl by numerous examples that that instinct of knowing just what the people want, has departed from the present' Democratic party, and been transferred to the Repub lican. He went on to enumerate several different instances where they had changed their vidws. The first great issne was1, ques tioning the right to suppress the rebellion. He proved that their views on this point had materially changed. He followed them up one after another till he came tip to the question of bonds, and taxation of bonds. This matter of taxation he made very plain by placing it in a light in which very few look at it Borrowing money at a certain per cent, without taxation is just the same as borrowing it at a higher per cent with taxation. Now the gov ernment did this. In time of need it offered to those who had money to lend, a certain per cent and then asked for no tax on it Mr. Monroe had the closest attention of the au dience during his whole speech. He is one of the most candid politicians that we have ever heard. The peo ple of this district are going to elect him. by a handsome majority. DEMOCRACY OPPOSES REDUCTION OF TAXATION. The Democracy are all the time harping upon the question of taxa tion, and claim that they are in favor of its reduction. Why don't they do it when they Iiave a chance? On the 13th of July last, a great measure passed the House of Rep resentatives. On that day over fifty million dollars of a reduction was made in the revenue taxes of the country and over twenty-six mill ion dollars of a reduction in the tariff duties on tea, coffee, sugar, spices, fruits, nuts, pig and scrap iron, &c. In those things the people are interested. The Repre sentatives that voted for' such a measure of relief to the tax-payers will be remembered with gratitude. Now who were they? Hon. James A. Garfield in his Mansfield speech, tells us. He says, speaking of it: The ayes and nays were called, and the vote stood 144 a-es to 49 nays. Fifty-five Democrats answered to their names. Eight of them voted against it. Xot one Ohio Democrat voted for it. How is this? When an opportu nity is given, they refuse to act in accordance witli their precepts. It does very well to talk about reduc tion, but when the time comes for making such reduction, why don't they go into it heartily and show the people t' ey mean what they say? STATES GETTING OUT OF DEBT. Iowa, under Republican rule, has paid off all her public debt, and has a large surplus; Indiana has paid the last dollar she owed, and her bonds are no longer the sport of Wall street stock jobbers; Illinois has steadily reduced her indebted ness, and has at easy command the means to extinguish it; and now comes Michigan, which has reduced her indebtedness about two millions in the past eighteen months. In the same time, President Grant's ad ministration has paid about $150,- 000,000 of the National debt, and reduced taxation about eighty mill ions. These Republicans may be terri ble fellows in Democratic estima tion, but they have a great faculty for getting the people out of debt, and cutting off the burdens of tax ation. If left in charge of affairs, the years are few when any public dcbts'will exist. WORK ORGANIZE! All the Republicans should be up and doing, for the fall canvass will involve the highest interest of the State and nation. It is of the first consequence to select the ablest and best men for nomination in all cases and leave-no room for chances. The party, strong in its records and its principles, will be stronger by selecting none but its best and most trust-worthy men. It is no time for divisions on mere local questions. We have to meet an enemy full of devices and little tricks, and never slow to avail itself of any element of division, however small in itself, to work mischief to the general cause. The canvass will be an important one in every sense, and Republicans should take early steps to organize thoroughly for victory. It is the full and complete vote that tells the story. WHO COMMENCED IT. Discontented Democrats will please note that Senator Douglas was the father of the system of giv ing public lands to railroads. He began it by procuring the donation to the great Illinois Central road. It was the Democratic policy to fos ter and encourage railroads by such gifts. The roads were built that otherwise would not be built The Government lost no money, as the alternate sections were sold at $2,50 per acre instead of $1,25. But, like othergood things it grew into abuse, and the Republican party has de clared its opposition to any further extension of it LET WELL ENOUGH ALONE. it of The Democracy of Ohio are ma king war on our National Bank cur rency and propose to replace it with greenbacks. These National Banks paid last year $19,000,000 in taxes, which nineteen millions under the Democratic plan would be lost, while the banks would pass into private hands. These National Banks fur nish the people a safe and sound currency, of equal value in all the states, ana no sane man will con sent to exchange them for the irre sponsioie private uanlc currency with which the country was cursed some years ago. Better let well enough alone. REDUCTION OF TAXES. A Republican administration in little over one year has reduced the public debt nearly one hundred and and sixty millions, and a Republi can Congress in one session ligth- ened the burdens of taxation over $80,000,000. Gold is quoted in New York at 113 and 113J. MORE LIGHT. The German Democrats in New Tork arc cutting their eye teeth. They met in convention the other evening, and adopted an address, in which it is asserted that "regard for" truth, right, and honor, alike de mand of us the severance from any and every political association that could or would accept and follow such an unprincipled, malicious, mean, and detestable course as has been chosen by certain would-be Democratic papers." That is the reward of the World, of New York, the Times, of Chicago, and their like followers throughout the country, for the servile worship with which they have bowed down to France's srolden calf during the "late" war. The elections the com ing Ml will give emphasis to these sentiments of the German Demo crats of New York. Why Every German Should Vote the Republican Ticket. Here are a few reasons why every German should vote the Republican ticket: 1. Because the Republican party is the only real democratic party in this country. 2. Because the Republican party has secured by treaty the release of all German citizens from their for mer allegiance, and has pledged the whole power of the Government for their protection wherever our flag floats, whether in this country or anv other. 3. Because the Republican party is the only organizarion in this country pledged to maintain the freedom of all citizens, without dis tinction of race or nationalty. 4. Because the Republican party by its councils and by four years' fighting, shoulder to shouldes with thousands of patriotic naturalized citizens preserved the Republic, and secured its continuance as a refuge for the oppressed of all lands for ever. 5. Because the Republican party removed the obloquy which rested upon all labor in the South because of slavery, and opened that part of our country to the self-respecting in dustry of all lands. 0. And finally, not to go into de tail further as to the hundreds of rea sons that might be urged, because the Republican party is the party of liberty, and progress, the friend of order, and the security of every man's rights. ON BOTH SIDES. The Chicago Democracy have struck the happy medium on the present war question by enlisting on both sides. One resolution congrat ulates the French, and the next res olution congratulates the German's. That must be what is called sympa thetic neutrality. The "Immortal J. N." could see in our war that the North and South were both right and both wrong, but Chicago Democracy have made a profound discovery, and declare the French right and the Germans right. RENOMINATION. The Republicans of the Tenth Congressional District have done good thing by renominating Dr. Peck. He served out the little time for which he was elected to the last Congress with credit to himself and his constituents, and gave every ev idence that with enlarged experience he would make an influential legis lator. We do not suppose anybody entertains any doubt of his re-election. REPUBLICAN VS. DEMOCRATIC HONESTY. a Our worthy co temporary, as well as all the rest of the Democratic papers of the country, is wont to express himself very strongly in re gard to the corruption and dishon esty of Republican office holders. It is much easier to make charges than to substantiate them, and far easier to make sweeping allegations of corruption against a class than to point out specific cases of dis honesty in the individuals that go to make up that class. While we do not claim immaculate infallibility for every member of the Republi can party, and will, if you please, admit that the party contains many dishonest men Democrats in dis guise we challenge a comparison in regard to the fidelity of the pub lic officials of the two parties when ever and wherever entrusted with power. To say nothing with regard i o the marked difference between the Ad ministrations of Buchanan and Lin coln, or of Johnson and Grant, nor yet about the essentially Democratic City of New York, where election frauds and public plunder is reduced to a perfect science, a few instances, of recent date in our own State, will serve to illustrate the point we are aiming at In the intensely Demo cratic county of Hancock three suc cessive County Treasurers have proved defaulters, the last one clear ing out with from $30,000 to $60,000 of the people's money. In the same county last year the Democratic Sheriff also proved to be a defaulter to the amount of about $8,000. The Democratic Treasurer of Franklin also proved a defaulter last year and was removed, though the Dem ocratic authorities of that county have failed to prosecute him. In the Democratic stronghold of But ler, also, with an unmixed Demo crat at its head, the county treasury was lately found empty when it should have contained $100,000 in greenbacks. And so the stale and country over, it is found of late years that wherever the Democracy is in power, there the money of the people is in peril. People of Ohio, see to it that the "plunder" party do not again get possession of the finances of your noble and prosper ous commonwealth. Akron Sea-con. Germans, do You Hear that? It is a little remarkable that all the leading Democratic organs of the nation should have so unani mously espoused the cause of Na poleon from the first, and so har monized in their malice toward the Prussians. The Chicago Times, the leading Democratic paper of the west says: The mrtv which sympathizes with France is the party of AVash- rngton, Jefferson, Wright ana uoug- las. The party which sympathizes with Prussia is the party of the rail- snlitting Lincoln, the horse-thief Brown, the beast Butler, the rene- gate Logan, the pc-dantis humner, the fonrierite and free-lover Greeley, and the imbecile Banks, the misceg- enationist Stevens, and the drunken Yates, Nye and Chandler." To which the Sandusky Register adds : What do the Germans of this city sav to this? Are they willing fur ther to support a party represented by the Chicago Times, and papers of its class. e nope wnen a .Demo cratic ticket is presented to a Ger man at the next election, that he will thrust in the face of the demagogue who offers it, a copy of the Chicago Times, and ask him it any man who loves the cause of the Germans will support a party which has stood by the tyrant of t ranee i The Cincinnati Enquirer gets off a nice morsel for the German palate. Speaking of the Republican party that paper says: It lias no good word for the brave army of Frenchmen, commanded by men who have won their way up from the ranks, and filled with vol unteers who arc fighting for home, country and freedom; but it ap plauds the army oi marauamg pnn ces who would "Wade through slaughter to the throne. And shut the gates of mercy on mankind." THE HONEST DEMOCRACY. a So persistent is thcs democratic press in its cnarges oi uniairness and corruption against the Repub lican part1, that it is well to keep in view, and to refresh the public mind upon, the remarkably "honest" means made use of by the Democ racy to obtain or retain political power. To say nothing of the in vention and reiteration of the base slanders and misrepresentations that are constantly being coined and cir culated in regard to public men and public measures, the outrageous frauds perpetrated by the managers of the party, whenever opportunity offers, ought to sink the party, and the men who control it, into the very lowest perdition. Of all the crimes that can be perpetrated upon an hon est and confiding people, frauds upon the ballot box, by which the le gal voters of a community are de frauded of their rights, are the very meanest that can be committed. Although it was well understood that for a series of years the most gigantic of frauds have been perpe trated in the city and State of New York, by which the city and State are kept in the hands of the treas ury plundering democracy, the full extents of those frauds was scarcely comprehended until made to stand out in snch bold relief, by the cen sus returns now being made, that even the democracy themselves are compelled to partially admit their truth. For instance, in a partial list of the returns, with an analysis the vote given at the election in May last, by which the democracy gained such an overwhelming "victory" the State, we find the following start ling figures: In the third district of the third ward the censns shows a population of 375 and a vote of 33872 of which votes were Republican, and 26G democratic. In the first district the sixth ward the population is 102 and the vote 99 23 Republican and 77 democratic. In the tenth district of the same ward the population 870, while the vote was 93450 Re publican and 884 democratic. In the sixthMistrict of the twenty-first ward, the population is 855 and the vote 555 42 Republican and democratic. In the 7th district the same ward the population is 716 and the vote 458 22 Republican and 436 democratic. These are but a few samples of the manner in which elections are man aged, wherever the democracy have control of the ballot-box, showing that majorities to an- required ex tent can be manufactured at will, re gardless of population. And these practices are by no means confined to New York City. There are well authenticated instances in Ohio, where similar trickery has been practiced, it being well known that the "repeating" system is but one of the many devices of the Democracy for gaining spurious victories at the polls. Is such a party worthy of the confidence iOf honest people? The voters of Ohio will, on the sec ond Tuesday of -October, most em phatically say, as they have often said before, NO! HON. M. WELKER. The following resolution, compli mentary of Judge Welker, was adopted by the Republican Con gressional Convention that met at West Salem on the 24th ult. Jiesolved, That having for six years confided the interests of the people ot this District in the Na tional Legislature, to Hon. Martin Welker and having fully considered the manner in which he has dis charged that important trust, in times of great national peril, we most heartily indorse him as an honest and able public servant. Judge Wclkcr's faithfulness to his constituency merits every word of the resolution. For six years he has represented the Fourteenth Dis trict in Congress, honestly, nbly, efficiently. He will retire from Con gress with a reputation unblem ished. No man would be bold en ough to venture the assertion that he ever accepted a bribe or made one dollar dishonestly. Judge Welker was not a candi date for rcnominatiou, and he will retire from the congressional field with the best wishes of the district Wootter Republican. DEMOCRATIC ECONOMY. Democratic 'feconomy" is well ex emplified in the recent history of Kentuck)-. The Xouisville Com mercial states that when the Dem ocracy came into power in that state, four years ago, there was a surplus of twenty-five thousand dollars in the Treasury, and that now there is a deficiency of over one million dol lars; while the Democratic Auditor of state announces the fact that the State government cannot be carried on without an increase of taxes, Comment unnecessary, only to ob serve that Democracy, so far as "economy" is concerned, is the same everywhere that it is entrusted with power. If, then, the Democracy cannot run a State government even. witnout increasing the taxes, why keep up such a howling about the present administration of the gov ern ment which is continually de creasing the amount of taxation? $500,000 EACH DAY. During the war Democrats said our government spent $3,000,000 per day and they said the debt would never be paid, but Grant is paying it at the rate of about $500,000 per day and that too after the taxes of the people have' been vastly reduced. Let Democratic speakers, and writ ers lie as they will, the debt is rap idly disappearing beneath the efforts of Grant's honest, capable and con stitutional administration. "WHAT HE PROMISES I HAVE DONE" In ancient Athens two men once contested for the suffrages of the people. One was profuse in promi ses of what he would do, and the other came forward and said : "What he promises I have done." This re ply can well be applied to the Dem ocratic and R cpublican parties. All that the Democrats promise weliavc done, or are doing. I give now one or two facts: In the last seventeen months of Andrew Johnson's Presi dency, the national debt, was in creased thirty millions; in the first seventeen months of General Grant's administration the debt has been do creased one hundred and eighty mill ions, and Congress at its last ses sion reduced the taxes more than eight- millions. AN ATTRACTIVE FEATURE OF THE NORTHERN OHIO FAIR. of in of is The managers of the Northern Ohio Fair have been untiring in their endeavors to secure every legitimate attraction for the great enterprise under their charge. Nothing has been left undone that fore-thought could suggest and that lay within their power to execute. The grounds have been fitted up with admirable taste and great liberality, the induce ments to exhibitors arc such as will draw to the Fair the agricultural and mechanical enterprise not only of Northern Ohio, but of the whole State and the adjoining States, and the arrangements for the comfort and convenience of visitors are as nearly perfect as experience and ability can make them. To add to the attractiveness of the exhibition the managers have, after much endeavor, succeeded in inducing General Garfield to deliv er an address on Tuesday, the 6th of October, one of the days of the Fair, in the amphitheatre on the grounds of the Association. The address will be in no way political, but will be devoted to topics sug gested bv the occasion, and will dwell particularly on the advantages of the Northern Ohio Fair to the people of Cleveland and of North ern Ohio generally. General Garfield is an orator of rare eloquence, with the additional advantage that his eloquence con sists not alone in words, but in facts presented. He has such a large gen eral information, he marshals his facts in such orderly array, presents them in such clear light and draws from them such convincing argu ment that the listeners for the mere pleasure of hearing a good speaker, and the veriest Gradgrind in pursuit of inexorable facts, are equally pleased. The enlistment of Gen eral Garfield in the cause is a great card for the management ot the Northern Ohio Fair Association. Cleveland Herald. CONDENSED WAR NEWS. The dispatches of Monday night and Tuesday forenoon bring noth ing new as to the situation of the troops around Paris, except the cutting of the Paris and Havre Railroad at Conflans, about fourteen miles northwest of Paris. iRailway communication is ,now completely severed. A correspondent professes to give the intended movements of the Prussian force to the south of Paris. Having crossed the Seine about eight miles from the fortifications, as we have already noted, they are to press forward to Versailles, and from that point to work their way under cover of the woods of Meudon to the heights of Clamart, where batteries are to be erected. From this point, should the city be bom barded, fire will be directed upon the quarter of Vaugirard, and it is ex pected that the fire will reach as far as the Boulevards D'Enfer and Mont Parnassc. The distance of these boulevards from the heights of Clamart in. a straight line is about four miles. The batteries would be but little over half a mile from Fort D'Issy, in the direct line of fire in dicated by this programme. Be tween Fort D'Issy, and the strong work of Fort Mont Valerian the west side of Paris wholly unpro tected save by the strong natural defences of the Seine, the Bois dc Boulogne, and tho walls. The dis tance between these forts, in a direct line of fire is a little over four miles. Wo give tho programme for just what it is worth a mere specula tion based on movements alrcndy made, in the absence of more defll- nitc knowledge. At last we have something in re liable shape as to tho position as sumed by the Prussian Government in relation to tho Government of France. Minister Motley telegraphs to the State Department that the story of King William 'refusing to treat with any other Government but the Imperial Regency and that lie ' means to restore Napoleon, is false. The King has no objection to the de facto Government because it has proclaimed a Republic, but cannot treat with it because it is tempor ary, unstable, and oflers no assur ance that it could fulfil the con ditions of a treaty. From this and other statements it would appear that the Prussians regard the Jules Favre ministry as the Government de facto and the Imperial rule as the Government dejure, but neither being in position to conclude and guarantee a treaty, Prussia will wait until a government of some kind arises that is able to perform those functions. Meantime, to add to the perplexity of the position, the Reds are showing their band, and have already placarded Paris with declar ations of a new government, to the terror of the bourgeoisc, who would prefer Prussian occupation of the city to the unchecked sway of a com munistic Republic. Between the Prussian determina tion not to recognize the rrovis ional Government as having author ity and the manifest purpose of the "Reds" to overthrow it and set up one of a more revolutionary charac ter, the Jules Favre administration arc evidently losing heart, and the prospects of a determined resistance under their direction are fading away. Trochu is reported to have said that resistance will result in massacre and then in anarchy. Whether he did, or did not, so ex press himself, it undoubtedly ex presses the facts. Canrobert, with his extraordinary column, hopping about north-east ern France in a way suggestive the Irishman's flea "when you put your finger on him he isn't there"- appears once more in the same old place a Belgian special to a New York paper, notorious for its anti- German tendencies and its ignor ing facts and posibilitics in the en deavor to put the best face on the French position. This time we hear nothing of the column that es caped with him from Metz, and that, after suddenly appearing out of the ground, or from the clouds, at St Quentin, defeated a Prussian force and menaced the Prussian right flank. Now he is doing some thing somewhere, but what he is do ing, or where he is doing it, the "special" has no idea. The dispatch to the same paper, from London, gives a glowing ac count of a great demonstration that city on Monday evening in fa vor of the French Republic, and of "Republic of United Europe,"' and sees in it the begining of a great po litical revolution in England. Among the items of news which may be true, and are not improba ble, but which must not be accepted with too much confidence, is the story that Bismarck has arranged with Italy that the Itallian troops may occupy Rome, Nice and Savoy if the people express the wish to reunited with Italy. SPRINGFIELD AND THE STATE FAIR. The State Fair is an object great contention among rival places that seek the notoriety and the profit that flow therefrom. To cities the size of Springfield the State Fair is an elephant; the question is, what to do with it, for it is too hig handle readily, and it will not do let go of it. But Springfield mas tered the monster handsomely. The energy of the citizens of that beau tiful city of springs was equal the task. We fancy there was little cause for complaint as at any of its score of predecessors; much less cause of complaint than usually exists. lhe provision made for visitors was on the most liberal and exten sive scale; the police regulations were admirable; there was no im position tolerated and very little at tempted, while means of approach to, and retreat from, the grounds were free and unobstructed. The man who complained of Springfield and its exertions to make the Fair pleasant and successful, was chronic croaker who would not be satisfied with three square meals day and a comfortable bed at night. Newspaper men, in addition to the general provision for visitors, were deeply indebted to 3Ir. Beach of the Springfield Advertiser, who tend ered food and lodging to every reprc sentative of the press. Unfortunately the Fair occurred just at the heel of the severest drouth that has visited Springfield for many years. ,very thing was dried up, save tho pcqietual springs from which the town takes its name, and the generous hospitality of a people whose hearts never wither. Meeting at Berlin. Remember that Hon. James Mon roe will speak at Berlin this evening, Do not fail to be present and hear him discuss the topics of the day. The Country Gentleman, in answer to an inquiry, says that or chard grass may be sown at the end of summer or early in autumn, provided the season happens to be quite moist otherwise, and more generally, early in spring at least one bushel per aero : two bettor. It will grow in quite thin or open woods, if the surface can previously bo made tiuite mellow by harrowing. THKiinilersItfnM will offer for sale nt pub lic uurtion, nt tho Into reMenre ol" Vm. A.
