There will be a meeting of the Executive,' and Advisory Com mittees of the Democratic and Liberal .Republican parties , tit their rooms, in Eaton, on Satur day, August 17th, 1872, at 1 o'clock,' P. : M. It is important that every member shall.be pres ent. Committee rooms over the Post Office. ' J. H. FOOS, Chairman. Ij. G. Gould, Secretory. North Carolina. . By fraud and ballot-box stuff ing, the radicals succeeded in electing the Governor of North Carolina, by a small majority.':' .The Democrats have the Legisla ture, and will contest the seat and . give it where it properly belongs. Executive Committee. At a meeting of the Democrat ic State Central Committee in Columbus on Tuesday, July 30, a State Executive Committee con sisting of five members was eleo ted... .Hon. John G. Thompson was elected Chairman, E.-'B. Es- helman, Secrrfary,. and j Jacob Reinhard, Esq., Treasurer, and v Amos Latman, Esq., and Hon, M, A. Daugheetv --ero elected mem bers. On the occasion of the Or ganization of the . State Central Committee at Cleveland on the 27th of Jane, Mr Thompsox was chosen Chairman and. Mr. Eshel man Secretary. The officers of the Executive Committee are the eame as in 1867. . ' :' Some Democrats affect to be lieve that there is no choice for Democrats between Greeley and ' Grant, and declare that the former is no better than the lat ter. The Democrats Beem to lose . sight altogether of the fact that these men represent at this time policies directly the opposite of i each other. Geeeley is the cham pion of Liberalism advocating local self government in the " States without Federal interfere . ence or dictation. Grant is the champion of despotism advoca ting the subordination of the po litical affairs of the states to the military control of the General Government. Nothing political ly can be wider apart than Qree ley and Grant, and while the lat ter occupies a position that must be condemned and opposed by . every Democrat, - Mr. Greeley is now' acting in concert with the cherished principles of the De mocracy. While Mr. Greeley was not the first choice of Democrats by any means, for the Presidency, yet they all recognize the fact that the only hope of ridding the country of the dishonest and cor rupt men with which Grant has surrounded himself, is by joining hand with the honest men f the country, without regard to for mer issues. And they will do it, -without a docbt. The Rads spent more money to carry North Carolina than was ever spent in a political canvass before, in any tta'e, and used more terrorism! Grant's Attempt to Bribe Senators. When Carl Sohurz said, in his great speech, that the President had tried to bribe him with an offer of unlimited patronage'if he would support his pet Santa Do mingo project, he started the country somewhat, but touched that functionary in a very tender and sore plase. The next meet-, tin of the cabinet was principal ly devoted to a consideration of what it was best to do. Some thing must be done, that was cer tain, Gen. Grant authorized an explicit denial and challenge tor proo, whereupon the ready and versatile German published a let ter from Gen. pleasanton, for a long time one of the President's family - and trusted intimates. The letter justifies the Senator's statement in every particular, and adds that this is not the first instance in which Gen. Grant's recollection has proved at fault The affair has had a daraag'ng effect upon the fair minded Re publicans who care moro for the country than for Gen. Grant, and would sooner see him defeated than have the nation suffer at his hands. But the unfavorable inis pressions were deepened by the prompt statement of other Sena tors that they were approached in the same way, and Gen. Grant went to the Capitol and personal ly Bought to influence Senators by such-', considerations as ho could personally present : Mr. Sumner was offered the mission toEhgland.if he would let the mea sure pass without the notice of his ever-vigilant eyos! " A sadder re velation of executive unfitness and degeneracy has "never been made. Every patriotic American will turn from the disclosure with pain. Instead of running him for re-election, he should be impeach ed by a unanimous vote of the U. S. Senate; and this would take place but for the fact that the ma. jority in. the Senate is as corrupt as Grant himself. Impeach him impeach, himi is, the demand of every honest man. - Rail-Road. . The latest ite ii concerning our Railroad, we clip from a letter in the Cincinnati Gazette, from Bellefontalne, Ohio, dated Au gust 8th: Bids were opened yesterday for the portion of the Lake Erie Ev- ansville and Southwestern Kail- road, to be built in this city and township, Jol. Paulson, Superin tendent of the road for the com pany was awarded the contract for the 60,000 bonds issued by the township. The company con tracts to build the mile of the road, all turn outs, side tracks, switches, frogs, &c, and put the iron down ready lor running. Work will commence immediate In North Carolina the Grant Administration have had 400 ILS.marshals operating during the lete campaign at five dollars a day. These fellows made ar rests almost all over the State just previous to the election on somo pretense or other. The persons arrested were allowed their liberty ,provided they would vote the radical ticket, and pro mised, that, if they did so, the the cases against them would be nollied after the election. This extended villany, with the ex penditure of hundreds of thou sands of dollars of their corrup tion fund, may account for the election in that -State, being so close on Governor. The State, however is all right, and Merri- man is governor elect. The Leg islature is largely conservative, and we have five of the eight members of Congress. Less than five per cent, of the Radical vote added to tl e Demo cratic vote of Ohio will gire tlie State to Greeley. The secession from the radical ranks since Gree ley's nomination, gives every as surance that Ohio will wheel in to the victorious line next No vember. Every Democrat, every farmer, every honest man .will vote for honest old Horace. Now that General Banks has "gone over to the enemy," of course he never was of any ac count he was quite as worthless indeed as Salmon P. Chase. Uor ace Greeley, Lyman Trumbull, Carl Scaurz, or Charles Sumner. O. P. Morton, Ben. Butler and Si mon Cameron are the real pat terns of great and true deliverers of sound doctrine. Has the Grant Administration been Economical? f The. Republican speakers and the Republican papers have- a good deal to say about theecono my of the Grant Administration: and the great reduction of expen ses while Grant has been Presi dent. The Eaton Register is ma king a big effort to stuff its read ers on Grant's economy. It is a dirty piece of deception for even a reckless pot-house stump-tail orator to nndertaketo impose up on those who have not the means to detect the fraud and imposi tion, but when a christian (?) edi tor of a Sunday School journal engages in the imposition it is still meaner and lower. If he does it ignorantly he is to be pitied. If his boasting be true the public documents furnished by Grant's oificittls ought to show it, but this they do not appear to do. It the Grant Administration has been economical a comparison of simi lar expenses under the prev'ous administration will demonstrate it. Tlie New York-Tribune has made this comparison and here are the results, let Morris study them : The expenses of Congress itself seem to falh.ll this requirement, Now we find that the cost of the Fortieth Congress, from June 30, 1866, to June 30 1869, was 6,- 651,074,including books, and that of the Fo. tv-hrat Congress, from June 30, 1869; to June 30 1871, was $11,223,042. We find no evi dence of economy here; but, ou the contrary, a startling increase in the bill. We are at a loss to conceive what we have had for all these millions. ; It scarcely seems possible that the Forty-first Congress was worth five millions more than the. r crrtie.th. , Next we will compare the cost of the Executive Department. Under this head are embraced the salaries of a great number of officeholders, including nearly all the big and . little ,-, officials at Washington, we ore told that Johnson" 8 administration was no toriously profligate, and it is commonly believed that Grant is immensely, less . expensive, than Johnson was. Yet we find that the last two years of Johnson's administration consumed $12, 856,220, while tho first two Grants run up to 818,709.472. The Iat ter sum does not inciude two-mil lions expended for compiling the census returns. The Judiciary, too, increased their expenses from $4,840,389 in 1867-9 to $5,931,262 in 1869 71. .Neither in the legis lative, executive or judiciary de partments do we find the Grant administration less expensive than Johnson's. The mint, assay offices and sub treasuries, which cost $2,281,055 in 1867-9 rise to $2,944,877 in 1869-71. Foreign intercourses eluding salaries of ministers and consuls, was maintained at an ex pense of $2,470,810 in 1867t9, and of $3,095,150 in 1869-71. John son collected the customs for $14- 543,448, in 1869-71; Grant tor $14,802,528. The Indians were experimented with for about $10, 900,000 for the two yers by both administrations. Forts and forti fications,' river and' harbor im provements, public buildings and repairs of buildings, absorbed $14,574,763 in 1867-9, and-lb,- 420,161 in 1869-71. But we will not weary the reader with details. We make, the broad . statement that there is nothing in the ofllc iat reports of Government expen ditures from 1867 to the latest is sue to countenance in the slight est degree the boat of superior e conomy which is bo boldly made by the partisians of General Grant. It is not an easjrp matter lor a great and umvieldy government, such as that of the United States has now become, to make pro gress in the direction of economy, For the last three 'ears, leaving out of the account the army and navy, the progress has been the other way. With the 1 resident a peculiar management of the civil service and the subserviency of Congressmen, what else could be expected ? Let us hear no more, then, of this talse pretense ot e conomy as an argument for a sec ond term of persDnal govern ment. The defeat of John A. Bingham in theSixteeuth District is signi ficant. Bingham was the first man to beat the going in Ohio for Grant. He appeared at Elyria as the early bird of the campaign. His defense of Grant upon that occasion, especially against the charge of nepotism, was grand and majestic. Every republican that leaves the corruption party is a "scab," or a "sore-head" according to the Register and papers . of its kind. We are forced to the conclusion that every member of that party is a "scab." As soon as the inde pendent man thinks for himself they all turn "States evidence." POLITICAL NOTES. One of tho puerile arguments brought against Mr. Greeley is that the people or. the South cau uot possibly vote for him because they are so angry, with, him for his so called lOn to Richmond'' course in Tub Tribune. Another is that Northern people cannot vote for him because he sympa thized with the Rebels all through the war. Wouldn't it be just as well tq rselect r one of these lies and stick io it? They will not hang together. It is proposed, to "fill up" that "chasm' which Secretary Bout well objects to clasping hands a cross, by dumping into it the pre sent Administration. The peo ple have taken the contract, and it will be performed in Novem ber . The- Liberal Republican Na tional committee are getting out a pamphlet showing the absent days of the President and all the members of his cabinet for the past three years. The pamphlet shows time of leaving and return by date. After North Carolina, Maine, September 9th, Presidential years should bo compared with Presi dential years. Four years ago the Grautites carried North Caro lina booming. Whera are they now? . - , ' , Gen. -Unnton and Col. John Mosby had a political discussion at Salem, Fauquier Co., Virginia, on the 3d. Mosby is loyal, now that he goes Grant? In a recent letter, Chief Justice Chase sayB: "If I live, and am able to so to Cincinnati in No vember, I shall vote for Horace Greeley. Judging by the North Carolina election the People are determin ad to bury. hatred and fill up the bloody chasm with the Grant gentry.,.-. - -- . The . Democrats and Libera Republicans of Michigan have united upon a state ticket. The ' Democrats and Liberals have struck hands in Vermont & have nominated a state ticket. Presto Change. What a remarkable coincidence exists in the histories of the three great lights of the Dental Associa tion, wiiom Indiana Radicals do most delight to honor, relative to changing the names bestowed up tins them in youth,. As is well known U rant s name was origin ally llirani U.. Grant,, but on ac- eount of the geueroMty of an early friend of the; family whose name was not Higgihs, but Simpson, the Hiram waB dropped by the grate ful jesse, a new deal was had, and our hero henceforth was known as Ulyssna Simpson Grant. The name of our crreat Dairyman Gov. ernor is really O. II. P. Throck morton; but on account of some youthful irregularities, it was. al most entirely remodeled aud ap peared anew in its present abre- viatedform. Dut the greatest en tef prise in this regard manifested by, any of the Grant party is that shown by their candidate for Vice President, Mr. Michael Mnllaly alias Jerry Colbaith alias Henry Wilsbu.V The fact of bts name being changed by the Legislature of Massachusetts fr na Jerry (Jol baith to - Henry Wilson, on his own petition is known and conce ded by nil his friends; but comes uow one Peter .Miller, a well known shoe-maker of Covinton, Kentucky, who says he is well ac quainted with the aforesaid Vice Presidential candidate, worked in the same shop with him when a boy, and that Wilion is really an Irishman, who ran away from home at an early age, and on coming to this country assumed thenameof Jerry Colbaith. "What a fellow feeling these gentlemen ot many names have. Atter JNo vember next we may look for an other change all around. Grant's Economy. No one will dispute the fact that, all things being equal, the cheapest Government is the besf, and that economy is a virtue m rulers' which is always properly appreciated by the people. The revenues of onr govern ment arise from only two sources taxes on imported goods.which necessarily go to increase their price, and direct internal taxes. The one coming mediately tne other immediately from the pockets of the people. In 1860 the United States Army cost the people $16,001,167. In 1872 it cost $14,080,085. In 1860 the Navy cost the people 11,513, 150; one million and a half of which was for new vessels. In 1871 it cost $19,431,027, with not a cent for new vessels. Here we discover a difference in two items of expenditure for a single year, of $32,696,795, in favor or James .Buchanan s .De mocratic Administration over U. S. Grant Radical rule. These are facts which the Sec retary of the Treasury can not cover up with all his proverbial" cunning. They are too palpa ble to escape tho notice of any but tho wilfully blind. Dayton Ijcdgcr.
