OUE CAMPAIGN HATES,
For the purpose of keeping the fiw.bi of

Wp urge our friends everywhere to got up
clubs, ho that the people may keep
thoroughly informed as to what Is new In
tho campaign. The rates are bo low that

TiOWJSCHENCK WAS DEFEATED,
Thure Is located at Dayton, Ohio, a noble
National charity, in the nhaic of au asy
lum for disabled soldiers who fought to
defend tho Government in tho years of its
peril. That asylum is their home. They ore
kept thereby the contributions of a people
grateful for services and sacrifices render
ed. There are over four hundred of these
veterans there gathered. On last Tuesday,
In the Democratic city of Dayton, Ohio
tho home of Vallandlgham these men
attempted to exercise tho rights of free
men, but were rcfuse,d. Democratic judges
refused to allow them to vote. General
Schenck was defeated for Congress In that
District by 112 votes. If the 400 crippled
soldiers had been allowed to vote last
Tuesday, as they did in 18C8, he
would have been elected by 300 majority.
Tt remains to be Been whether he can be
defeated in such a way. If these soldiers
.cannot vote at the asylum, which is ocr
tainly now their home, where will they bo
permitted to vote? Or will ',ho Democracy
attempt by such a trick to disfranchise
OUE INXEBKAL IMPHOVEMENTS.
Tho people of this State, and especially
of Eastern Tennessee, are deeply interested
In tho improvement of our navigable
streams, our railroad system, and our pub
lic thorougfaresof every kind. Nothing
so encourages the productive energies of
the people as n quick and remunerative
market, Which cannot be affected by
monopolicsorringa. What has contributed
m materially to the wealth ot the great
States of New York, Pennsylvania, Ohio,
Illinois, Indiana and the New England
States as their interminable network of
railway lines and their navigable rivers ?
Look at the great West, whero property
goes up to such fabulous prices in the lapse
of only a few weeks, when the shrill nolgh
of the iron horse la heard over the broad
prairies. We compare these ricli and pop
ulous districts at tho North and Kast,
whero their natural advantages are in no
wise superiorto ours.with ourown section,
.and aro led to inquire why it Is so. Tho
.answer lies In the superior commercial and
manufacturing ad vantages offered by their
ready facilities for reaching a market. Wo
must either ship our produce over one lino
of railroad or else we must rely ujnm the
Holston and Tennessee rivers, which, in
their present condition, aro not navigable
for at least one-third of the year. Uesldes
tills, there Is now a very large portion of
our section of tho State which cannot
' reach either of these avenues of trade, and
are forced to bring their produco to market
n long distance, over sorry dirt roads,
which, in tho winter season, become al
most impassable for heavy laden wagons.
Thus, our productive energies are discour
sed, and where wo produce hundreds we
might just as well produce thousands of
dollars. It is well known that our moun
tain streams furnish the finest water pow
ir in the world) and tho only reason why
t icy are not driving machinery that would
1 reduce manufactured articles, to a large
c-vicnt, for ilia entire South, is that the
j .'optr facilities are not oU'urod for roach
i f'thc various markets North, uo well us
Kith. These- are questions which should
iti rest ull our people, and wo ought also
i iii mliv how a remedy is to bo ell'ected.
l remedy is very plain. Wo must com
"cto unfinished railroads and open up still
:h "s. Dirt roads iuut give place to good
turnpikes, and tho Tennessee river should
i-i improved as to bo navigable at all times
in the year. These are matters wo should
I ok to and try to encourage by State and
National legislation, and push forward by
private enterprise. We aro forced to do
thi, or lose our natural advantages anil bo
outstripped by our less fortunate but more
enterprising neighbors. We liavo not
space In a short newspaper article to sug
gest how it should be done, and only write
for tho purpose of suggesting, or, rathor,
for the purpose of bringing tho matter to
the attention of inquiring minds.
Oru friends in lllnunt county will please

SUPPLIES IN PARIS.
Tho authorities in Paris flmd the question
of food quite as jierplexing as tho presence
and force of the Germans Is alarming.
They have regulated its consumption as
ingeniously as it could well bo done. To
have placed tho entire population upon an
equality absolutely as to quantity and
quality would have been Impracticable.
Tho system adopted Is thus explained by
tho New York Time : Kach butcher re
ceives every morning a certain supply of
meat, the quantity being determined by
his average sides. Against this supply the
butcher Issues coupons to his customers.
lasting for tho week, Tho customers Cut
on a iicKct uaiiy and draw their allowance.
They get no more beyond this, nor can anv
one not a customer get any at all. Thus
an artltlolal scarcity is produced. Many
persons can get no tickets, and so can get
no meat The restaurants cannot got
enough for their customers, who have
money to pay. But tho conseauence Is n
great economy In the use of the supply.
i' rencn coous navo long been famous for
making animal food go far, and their tra
ditional skill will now bo taxed to tho ut
most The amount of meat In Paris is still
very large. Thcroisalso a vast nunntltv
of salted beef and pork, and in nddltion to
the rest there are 22,000,000 pounds of
Horseflesh. Thus, butter is selling ot five
francs a pound : a pair of ducks cost twentv
francs, a goose the same, a chicken ten
irancs, nam tnreo francs the pound, ond so
011. Of course, few can niv tirsu nrixw

THE CHEAPEST ADMINISTRATION SINCE
In an able speech delivered bv Sonntor
Conkling, in tho State of New York, wo
llnd some interesting and, at tho samo
time, creditable statistic bearing upon tho
integrity ana economy of President Grant's
Administration. As tho nuestlon of finv-
ernmental expenditures has been made so
prominent in the canvass now progressing
by tho Democracy, we desire to invito the.
attention of every honest tax-paying citi
zen to tno following facts.
ComiKirinir the civil expenditures of tin.
Administrations of Jackson, Van Kuren,
Polk, Pierce and Uuchnnnn with tli fit nf
Gen. Grant, we find this result: For the
year ending June 30, 1870, the last fiscal
year, the cost of the Government, wna
$1.01 J for every person In the Nation, and
tins is iehs ny thirteen cents than the ave
rage cost for twenty-four years preceding
the rebellion. This assertion may surprise
you, and, bo I will give you data:
