. 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.
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
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
Grant's Attempt to Bribe
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. -
. The latest ite ii concerning our
Railroad, we clip from a letter in
the Cincinnati Gazette, from
Bellefontalne, Ohio, dated Au
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
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
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
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
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
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."
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
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
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
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.
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.
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
