REPUBLICANS—ORGANIZE! I'Wr ar rapidly approaching a period in t history cf our country wliich is rlerily portentous in it rulalinn lo -JUmM-Urftv.

As UcUtciT with them In li-glaliitivo powers will be body of tnon on vlmso concurrent action, will depend tlie diffusion of homo gsiious institutions, throughout I ho l.itid, nod tlio establishment nf equality before th law, or Ilia revival of effete institu tions, which in Ilia past, imdur the ap srtint nnctiou of Constitutional law, linn Imon a curse lo tlio nation, which linn beun obliterated only by tlio blood of our pulriot fellow citizens. 8ncu consequence nro retting on your decisions at the ballot box. The Demooratio parly ere fully alive to the importune of those issue and of tin con teat, and everywhere they aro perfecting thoir organization for the purposo of attain in); power. The principled and policy ol I lint party, Trotou lik accomodates ilHolf to the ' prejudices of all sections of the country. In the South, it breathes the spirit ' and prejudices of the prostrate alnve power. In the West, it addressos itself to the de basing instincts of corruption, by talking of repudiation, lu the E tat, it caj-ilos tha despised' bondholder by its sophistry and g:inlmon and solicits their co operation to elevate the party to power. Should that event occur, we may auticipalo the policy ot Akdrcw Johnson,, in an old form, but re vised and correoted by the compilers Bouih. Tu-prevout thoso results, it behooves every Republican to bo vigilant and active. Unity of feeling and unity of effort nm it every where be cherished. A thorough organiza tion should at once be efTucted. In every towuehip and in every school district lot there- be an organization formed, so that in October and November next we may not only , maintain our nmnorictil force, but make a large advance. With the increased population thore should be some .1.000 votes oast in this county next full, which may by proper effort give us at luiist 1,000 majority. With Chant as President, and Wadk as Yioo-President, and a body of faithful, earnest men in Congress to sup port them, the permanonoy of our free in- etittltiun wilt It atbliuli.l uJ tUair prosperity enhauoed. The genius of the nation, no longer fettered by teudal usages and the laws of caste, will grasp itH destiny and become the harbinger of freedom tu the dowu-troddon, and the medium of an enlightened civilisation to the barbarous nations of earth. Already China, Ii.dia, Mexico, tin) South Sua Inlands, and other parts of the globe, have folt tlio vitalizing power of'our institutions. Lot us, there fore, see to it that thore be no retarding element oreatod by our votes in the coining campaign. Let thoso only bo eloctod to nllice who are in favor of unftttoied Freedom- men who rogard justice and oquality beforo the law. To that end our destiny calls ; by our faithfulness to it we shall tri umph and prosper. - WHO ARE THE BOND-HOLDING ARISTOCRACY. During the political campaign in this Htate, last full, Mr. Pknih.kton advanced bis notable scheme fur paying tlio national debt in Greenbacks. The plan is certainly very convenient, as it furmeties means for the payment of debt, dependent only on the productive capacity of the paper mill, and the skill of the engraver. The philosophy tf Mr. I'rnui.cton's plan is thus illusti a o 1 : A. purchases of 0. AO biihhul of wheat, in payment for which ho executes a note for 8100, payablo in tiinety days, A. takes poscssion of the wheat, uhos it up, or sells it again, and when his obligations fall due, instead of ottering an equivalent in pay innnt for the value he has received, he ays to his creditor : " Well, you give up my note (or tiinety days and I will pay you the. $100 by my 1. O. U., payable between this time and the day of ju-lgmont, or when you can get it." That is just the length and breadth, highth and depth, thecircum- frence and diameter of Mr. Pendleton's great financial plan, of which tlio Demo cratio stump speakers vaunted mo much last full. These very men who have pro pounded anil advocated this schema of national repudiation and dishonesty, would purn, with contempt and derision, any personal debtor of thoir who should piopose to liquidate Ihtir vlnim in such luanuer. If that policy is wrong in indi vidual cases, it is also wrong in its appli cation to the credit and finances of this iiatiou. However much w may differ from that really eminent and crafty politi cian, Uoavru SfcYXoun, in his political theories, -we cordiully iudoiso, and com roend to the attention of our Democratic Jrioods ihthjscdnty, his sagacious and timely remarks, delivered at th N. Y. llcmocratio Slate Convention, on our finan cial interests, and the mutual obligations rosting on this nation and its creditors. Mr. SkYMoca describes the class design. ted Uio d.jiiu iiouiiig AiiHiociwcy-a. ioiios; "It is a mistake to'supposo that the bonds are iiiosaJylieW bv capitalists. .are sums befori;riig to ctWidreu and widows iiuJer the outer of the -courts or thuaitiou ol liiistees, have betn 'iUvested'io Uoveru ment bonds.

Hut they belonif In fact, if not in form, to the business, the active and laboring member of society. Th destruction of these securi ties would make a wide spread ruin and distress which would roach Into every workshop ana every homo, however hum ble." Mr. fluYnoim' remark tipply eipally lo Ih Statu of Ohio, and to each Northern and Western Btsle. The farmer, th merchant, Iho widows and orphans of this State, am) our business corporations cheer fully loaned thoir substance to the Gov eminent, when its credit was impaired, w hen the life of the nation was endangered j shall we now repay thoir patriotism by robbing 'them? That is th consequone involved in Mr. Psndi.kton's schomo. Mr SxTMora forcibly .states the ooiisequeuces proceeding from tlio Pendleton policy t " Pome hold (hat it blight, and that it is due to Ihe tax payers, that we should save what we can by PayiniC the iiriiiciiial of tlio debt hi currency ; but they uud rrsto tho force of their own arguments. It Is a nnntnko to suppose tha' the interests of the bondholder mid tlio tax payors are antago nistic. Tho fact is overlooked that in order to make any saving by giving the bondholder a debased and worthless paper, we would bfing upon ourselves disaster nnl dishonor winch will rost a hundred fold what we can siivo. It moans that we are to givo lo tho laborer for his (oil a base currency it means that the honor of our country shall be slaiucd : it mffuis that our business shall be kept In tinec rtiiinty and confusion ; it means that the laboring man shall suffer by tho increased cost of the uiimtoi lH of lire. We can t afford to specu lute upon the Nation's lienor at so fuurful a cost. Every Democrat demands a policy ol peace, order, and economy, and just so fur us lie gains that ho I Its up the national credit j ho makes our currency as good as sterling onin, for thut will riso with tho public credit." Mr. Skvmour concludes with an earnest appoal lo the Bondholders, to ooino up to the help of tho Democratic lords ngaiusl the m'ghty : " We appeal to the bondholders to help rescue our country from thu hands of cor rupt and ungrateful men. Ily so doing thy will not only best socuie their own mimesis, but will cam the eood will and Kratitude of the oppressed laborer and iix-payura Now Hampshire lias repliod to thut ap poal, and its voice resounds throughout the nation. In duo time each other Stuto will answer in accord. With Grant for President, and old Drn. In tho Vice-Presi dential Chair, and a large body of earnest Republicans in Congress lo support them, our country will have nothing lo foar from corrupt and ungrateful men. FINANCIAL RETRENCHMENT. Tho system of taxation which as hitherto provailod, has been the source of much dissatisfaction and annoyance. In many re spects its provisions wore deemed unjust and inquisitorial, and the process by which theso law have boon administered, has fostered the otenionU of comipt'on and f and to an extent truly ulatmiug. Against this state of things the people have raised thoir voice, and its potency has boeu heard by thoso whoso duty it is to enact sulutiry and just laws for the government of the Kepiesontalivo by one of its Committees. for th reduction of taxation, bus been acted on. A bill bus passed Ihe Hoiisei aud now awaits the action of tho Senate, by which the five per cent, tax will be re moved from all domestic; manufactures. with the exception of petroleum, fermented liquor, distilled spirits, tobacco, snuff, ci gars and illuminating gas. Should this bill become tho law, of which thore is not the shadow of doubt, it removes an annual burden of about 591,000,000 from tho in lustriul onergics of the nation, whilst new taxes to the am unit of 320,000,00 ), of a speoial character, will bo substituted. It is also proposed to adopt such moasuren for tho collection of taxes now existing as will possibly add very largely to tho com mon revenuo of tho nation. Congressional action will be dirocted to equalising the burdons f tho country, and to the enfoio iug of faithful action in tho administration of tho law. That can only be done by the removal of bud uinn from office, of whom tho chief is ho who now occupiis the Pres idential Chair. REPUBLICAN VICTORY IN NEW HAMPSHIRE. The results of to late political contest in New Hampshire are highly favorable lo the Republican party. Governor Harki mam has a clear majority of 2,,')00, over his Democratio competitor. This election was deemed by each party as a test ot public sentiment, and nil iudioation of results tu be attained in November next. As such we hall this glorious triumph as the best mid brightest omen, that the Republican party is alive to the great issues involved in the approaching campaign, and are fully pre pared to moot them. This victory in (he Granite State nut only furnishes iheerin evldenco of publio sentiment in regard to who shall bo the future occupant of the Presidential Chair, but it also donioiiMtru'es tho fact that Andbrw Johnson's policy, to. gother with himself, have been weighed iu the balance and found wanting. It fur nishes an ample indorsment of Congress in their iinpeachiueut of him. Let our ruotto now be, close th ranks, and march shoul der to shoulder lo the conflict, and Ihe re sults accomplished in New Hampshire i,l be repeated in every Northern Stale, cx cepting only that of New Jereey. lux tollowini: iiaracranh taken from the Springfield MaSa.

Lditoi Joirn.iui My attention has boen directed tu a communication from lawyer Reld to th flowi ng Green Sentinel of last week, In which ho take exception to my protest against levying the $23,000 1st for County lluilding at Dowling Green. In that communication he doe not attempt to reply to anything I hare staled in my pre test, but simply resorts to th process which ever Indioates a bad cans personal in veclivo an-l groi mirsprsu Jition. II afllrin that tho motive to my action arose from " I'errysbnrg sploen, ami that he has been villifbvl an I inisrepiesanlo 1 on Ihe County-seat quostion, by Perrysburg luck eit." Leaving th Perrysburg lackeys ss ho terms his fellow citizens to answer for themselves, I charge luwyer Reid with staling an untruth in ascribing my action to Perrysburg spleen. A it respect Ills opinion of what he term my ungentle manly conduct, it may go for what it is worth. I do not regard hi opinions, nor his fifimoiwl ill nut rut ion of gentlemanly conduct, as possessing much weight. As Mr. Reid is pleased lo attribute my net to false motives, I will again state my reasons for it that all parties may understand my position. 1. It is but a fow months since a lovy of taxas was m i lo for the purcha-tiug propnrty on which to establish County I-iflrmary . The ttxes for that purposo have not yet been paid. Th publio wcro called on to vote on that question, and it is certainly as much their right to have this lovy reforred lo them for thoir approval. 2. Tho Ciunty Troas-iry is involved in debt to till a-noimt of over 84,000, and ap plication liu-i boon m i-lo by the Commis sioners to tho Legislature for a bill author iing an extra lovy to pay that debt. Willi tho knowledge of ihls fact before them, I o levy nppenrod to me to imply a reckless disregard of the publio li.tcrests. 3. It is well known that tho ho ivy taxes for ditching purposes, has occasioned much siiffiriug among our poor farmers, many of whom have had thoir Inula soi l for delinquent taxes. I therefore deemed anv further udditiou thereto, without Iho cx press sanction ol tho people, as being wholly unwarranted 4. I considered tho attempt to levy $2-1.000 taxes lor tho erection of coiintv buildings at Bowling Green, as iuexpo diunt at this time, and a stretch of ofliciul authority wholly unauthorized by law, and only intended by tho prime mover in tuo act (o luster litigation ami to an grace, and injura th Iiiyublican party of tut countu. 5. It was stated, and that statement is well remembered throughout the county. that in case the Howling pnoplo did not orcct tho now county buildings at their own cost, that (hero should bo no taxation until its policy had been submitted to tho popular vote. With the fact before me of such burdens rosting on tho shoulders of Iho tax payer, and with tlio knovvledKii that tlio voters ol this county expected the Commissioners in good luitli to submit the question to them, 1 entered my protest against this lovy of taxes, as an abuse of power which would only promote strife and division. On these grounds I protested, aud do now protest, and as a mutter of justice demand that tho question of luxation be subinittod lo the people. If I urn wrong in doing this, I am very willing to beur the consequence ol my act. My reason (or mentioning lawyer Held s name in my protest, arose from the fact that Iho Commissioners wero apparently irov- emeu uy ins unvice, unu ucced Under Ins instructions. Iho written orders which the Commissioners cavo tho Auditor tor entering $23,000 on the Tax Duplicate were, in Ihe hand writing of Mr. Reid, of which tho following is a correct copy: It is hereby ordered that a levy of ten thousand dollars be ami tho same is hereby nudo for the purposo of constructing a Court-house at Howling Green, in this coun ty, liy a contract hereafter to bo made and entered into, for the erection and construc tion of such Court-house ; and it is further ordered that no other or further sum shall be hereafter levied for the building of said Conrt-liiiuse, or for the purchase of ground on which lo erect the same, or to pay a con tractor I ir the erectiou and construction thereof.

S. W. St. John John Russku., County Cum. March 3, 1868. When th relations of Mr. Reid a counsellor in the Injunction esse lately decided, and in the contest rase now pend ingis considered, it would have seemed more creditable to his reputation a an interested lawyer, had he not meddled in the matter. An interested party muy al ways be regarded with suspicion, especially when his actions ar in violation of right belonging tu his frllnvr citixon of (his WALTER DAVIDSON. County Commissioner.

V, 1HS8 T. B. Ilowell, Esq., Paioted Post, N. Y I Drar 8ir W hav your letter ol the 18th, inclosing Mr, Hslcora's resolutions. Tli sal of the first five-twenty loan was undertaken by our Mr. Jay Cooke, at a time whon the Government bad utterly failed to find a market for th bond through tho ordinary channels, aud lit necessities of Ihe Treasury wer immediate vid press ing. The bonds wer offared directly to Ihe people, and sold to them at prices which could not possibly liar been obtained but for th distinct understanding that they wer payable principal and interest in coin. That this wo the spirit and intent of the authorising act, it ia only necessary to refer to the sinking fund clause (sec. 6. act Feb. 2.1, 1862), which speoifta-illy appro priates Ihe coin duties on imports to first payment of inteiest on publio debt; sec ond, lo a sinking fund for the payment of principal. AH Ih funded debt of the United Mate that ha heretofore matured has been paid in coin, notwithstanding the acts did not so specify in word, and throe such loan have matured and been paid in cam since tlie issue ol Ihe 0 20s Of 18G2. These bonds then wer advertised aid old in good faith a gold bonds ; and that they wer so payuhln, seo the letters of Secretaries Chase, Fessomlon and MoCul loch, all of whom have repeatedly ullirincd it. The 5 20s of 1862 will not uiaturd iintil 1892, when tln-y will be du i, and payable in coin. The Goverim e il's option only ha matured, but the Govoruiiuut is njt uow ready to pay. I1, as Mr. Bdoom nrges Iho Government should pay in greenbacks what is a green back but a promise to pay a dollar? and, if 500,000,000 uf greenbacks should be issued lo pay Ih five-twenties, must we not afterward pay them, and it so, in w hat but i;old t Such an issue ol paper money every thinking man knows would Ma ly unsettle vuluos, and indefinitely rem ive the re sumption of specie payment. But, on the oilier nana, without uny increase ot cur rency, in a reason iI1j lima specie payment will be resumed, gold and greenbacks will be or equal value, and to pay the binds Its geld will be no hardship. Without entering into any labored argu ment to meet Mr. It doom's ' reasons " for taxing bonds, it is enough to say, in am wer to the idea of bondhnldiug aristocracy, that it is in the power of any ma i to become a bondholder by purchase ih the market, it Me regard the exemption trom tnxatiou u a sullicient inducement to sell taxable prop erty and so invest the proceeds. If bond holders are a ' favorite class," no man pns seesing any property is excluded from ihat class except ot Ins choice, and uo such id a can be made a justification for violation l y tho Government of a contract which at Ihe limo it was made was indispensable to the supply ot the Treasury. It is not generally known how large a proportion of the securities of the United States are held by people of mo lorutc menus for the investment of their savings.
