'I'orliparlsons or (he Taxes He Iwren iwble and Monroe Coun ties " HIS 9IlSKEIRi:snT.lTIOXS EX PLODED. Tho Woodsficld Radical lawyer in a communication to the Athens Messenger, dated Sept. 21, calls attention to the tax ation of Monroe and Noble Counties as follows : 'We call attention to the relative bur dens of taxation in Monroe and Noble the latter county Republican. Br the Commissioner's annual report, published in the Spirit (for which tho editor was well paid) of October 2'.), 18G7, it appears that all our expenses for the year ending Sept. 4, 1807, for county and township purposes alone, were over 8122,000. By the Spirit of Sept. 15, 1868, as given in the Treasurer's report.it will be seen that nearly as large a sum has lieen handled by that officer for the current year. But lest this be considered unfair, let us take tho lev' of 18(57. In our county the levy for countv and township purposes alone were 8S3,000, for State $20,000, of which $13,000 was refunded to us, mak ing our total for count- and township 08,000. The total for county and town ship purposes in Noble was 859,000. : We paid for each inhabitant 3 85 tax, thev but 2 85. At last fall's election Noble County polled 3,882 votes, Mon roe 4,509. . Their tax per voter was 315 20;ours!?21 35, or $6 15 per voter more than theirs. Again our levy for county purposes alone for 1803 is 88 cents per hundred dollars ; theirs 30 cents, or a little more than one third of ours. These facta are well known to tax-payers on tho border, and have caused no little grumbling. Is it possible that our edi tor's wish to protect the coiuvtj' from Radical robbery has kept down his list of items on this suniectr lhc more we think of his devotion to the interests of the county, the more we feel inclined to wonder at his masterly silence on this question. Here is.a field where his ge nius for calculation need find no limit, as he revels in facts and fancies suggested by Monroe Count' taxes." - The first charge which sets forth that the expenses of Monroe for the year en ding Sept. i, 18C7, were 8122,000, we shall prove to be false. The tax levied by the County Commis sioners, for all county purposes, for 1867, was, County expenses, 88,628; bridge 85,752 ; poor 84,026 ; road 817,256. To tal $35,662. The tax levied, for township purposes, in 1867, by the township authorities, was, township tax, 823,336, school tax, $27, 522. Total 850,858. Every cent of which was j'rtt'rf to the township author ities. V This same Radical forgot to tell the people that the law authorizing the Com missioners to levy three mills for road purposes, wasjuissed bg a -Radical Leg- . , . . rtr rl 1 : Ml ' - mature in. moo. ino law win expire in 1869. In addition, there was in the above county levy, 86,545 of delinquencies.un- paid taxes of former years. Now the result of the above is this ! Scncx's figures 898,000 Actual expenses for all purposes in 1807.. 35,602 Total amount of falsehood 862,338 We will now give the tax levy of Mon roe County for 1808, which the impartial "Senex" leaves entirely out of his "com parison," because it exhibits a large de crease since 1SG7. The total county tax, levied by the Commissioners, for 18158, including debt, expenses, Infirmary, bridge and road amouuts to only 829,553 Deduct that from the countv tax of ISO 7 ..'....I 35,602 And wc. find a reduction $6,109 in one year of the county lev' of SIX THOUSAND ONE HUNDRED AND NINE DOLLARS!

Total reduction' of county mid town ship taxes in one year 8-0.S26 39 He says, Monroe pan! for each inhab itant 83 85 tax, Noble but 82 85. Let us see. The population of Mon roe by the census of I860, was 25,741. Noble 20,751. But it did not suit'Sencx's' purpose to honestly state these fa els, but he based his calculations on the vote of 1807. Wc find that the population of j Monroe over Noble is 4,990. Now the tax in Monroe is 83 99rwhile that of Noble is 83 52. Compare these figures with those at the commencement of this paragraph and you will discover that Senex falsified again, aud for no other purpose than to tenefit Moore, his pay master, by deceiving the people.

Belmont The average is 84 84 per head, Monroe being 84 1-2 cents per head below this general aver age. Athens, by the above has a population of 4,377 less than Monroe, yet wo find the tax per head to be ninety-eight cents and a fraction more than Monroe. Morgan has a population of 3,622 less than Monroe, yet we find the tax to be cighly-scvcn cents more per head thau the tax in Monroe. In all of these, except Noble, whether tho population is greater or less than Monroe, the result is the same. And iu Noble, with a population of 4,990 less than Mouroe, the tax is only forty-seven cents less. Wc are sorry for "Series's reputation as a gentleman of trutli,to be compelled, by his false statements, to publish the above expose, and show liini up to tho public iu so unfavorable a light. But if he cannot control his political feelings better than to wilfully and deliberately misstate plain facts, he must not expect to escape unscathed. Wc have seen the sheet headed "Tax es ! Taxes ! Taxes !" issued by the Rad ical Central Committee. Tho above re futes it completely. Gen. T. F. Wildes' Inumanity. During the rebellion the 116th Ohio Regiment was up near Winchester. A soldier named Lewis C. Ring was in an ambulance sick. AVildes ordered him out to make room for some NEGRO WENCHES. Mr. Rixg died at Winchester from the effect of Wildes' brutal treatment We obtained this information from a reliable citizen, who knew Mr. Ring, fyom Bon ton Township. Moore, the Radical candidate for Con gress, had the brazen effrontery to send this villain, Wildes, into Monroe Coun ty to make speeches for his benefit Voters ! Place your seal of condem nation upon this brace of scoundrels at the ballot-box on the 13th. The Alhcus Mcssengrer's Article in its issue of the 24th ult, head ed "The Editor of the Spirit and the Negro," is false in every particular, as dozens of Democrats and Radicals living in Woodsfield will testify. Villain! Hide your head with shame ! Your mas ter, Moore, pays you to say there was a mob, and revolvers presented by Gen. Richardson. Zrln his letter Phillips tells how the Democrats are oppressed in Massachu setts : "Go to Lowell and announce that who-' ever votes the Democratic ticket will be discharged from the mills, how many will risk suffering to support their princi ples?" That's the manner in which Radical ism operates in the East. iT Phillips, in his letter, pictures Grant iu this wise : "The mottoes he has lent to politics, or history, Jare such as a bull dog might nave irrowiea ioriu. a naiioii oaum for an idea takes for its leader a man confessedly destitute of ideas." How do the Monroe County Radi cals like their "bull dog V" Desertions Are numerous from tjie Radicals. They arc anxious for the elec4&n to come oiH The people have no faith in their Negro and Taxation doctrines, therefore are deserting them daily. The Changes In Monroe County arc all to. the Demo crats. We are gaining every day ! Press tlidm and Follett will go out of the county with a majority of 3,000 votes. 7 Everything Is bright. The Radicals are losing in Monroe County every day. Tush them ! Tell them of their grinding taxation and Negro policy. ! . .

Guenisey Bclmont . The average of tho eight counties is 84 84 per head, Monroe being 84 cents per head below this general average. Mr. Editor, I had intended to give the valuation of the property in these seve ral counties and show that there were other counties in the District thut paid a greater per cent than Monroe, but have not time. I may refer to the subject again. A Ye all know that we have a large population without much wealth. Wc must have the same num ber of officers and the same expenses to bear as counties of greater wealth but of verv much less Dorulation. Think of these things, and do not be led astray by the, as I understand, proposed pamphlet that the Radicals, with the aid of Moore's money, intend to publish relative to our county atlairs. Jas. R. Morris. ""No sensible man will claim for either party perfect fairness and honesty for all its men and all its measures ; but wc think it may be honestly claimed for the Republican party that its men are generally fair and honest, and its meas ures while in power have tended to pro mote the welfare and unity of the coun try." "Senex." Let us see about that "welfare and unity :" The Radical party plunged this coun try into a bloody war and sacrificed 500 000 soldiers. It established 1,600 National Banks to make the rich richer and the poor poorer. It enfranchised the Negroes of ten States and disfranchised the white. citi zens. It quartered an army on the people of ten Southern States. It established a Negro Bureau for the benefit of worthless Negroes in the Southern States. It established test oaths for white mcu and permitted Negroe3 to vote without question, iu ten Southern States. It deprived the people' of ten Southern States of the privilege of voting for elec tors, by giving tho NegrO Legislatures power to elect them. Do these acts "promote the welfare and unity of the country ?" Shame ! Taxes: Taxes!! Taxes!!! The above is the first heading of an article the Radicals, aided by Moore's 810,000, have for circulation when it will be impossible for us to get a refutation to" the people before the election on the 13th. We requested a copy of a prominent Radical of Woodsfield, in order to ex pose its misrepresentations, but he re fused to even let us see it, let alone give us one. There is fraud and deception in such underhanded work. Watch them ! Read the article hi this week's "Spirit" in rela tion to county alfairs, and we think you will discover some of their tricks. Again, be not deceived! Watch for Radical trickery! Later. Since tiie above was written a friend placed one of the sheets in our hand. It is issued by the Radical Cen tral Committee. Our article in this is sue is a complete reply to everything ! coulained in it, The misrepresentations headed "Taxes! Taxes! Taxes!" will not benefit the Radicals one iota. "And if we mistake not he said publicly on our streets (before the press was ofl'ered him) no corrupt Democracy could ever drive him into line." "Senex" was misinformed when he penned uic above, else he deliberately- falsified.. We have been connected with the "Spirit" during the past ten years. We never made use of any such lan guage, neither can he name a responsible man who will assert it. Itc on Your Guard for frauds on the loth. Nothing will be left undone to elect the Rebel Moore. Take Your Neighbors To the polls on the 13th. Read your tickets and be sure the names are as those printed in the "Spirit." M atch Your Tickets! Democrats ! Destroy the bogus tickets, put in circulation by the Radicals. Moore's Gold interest pays the bills. Rally! Rally!! Rally!!! To the Polls on the 13th, and vote the Democratic White Man's Ticket. Monroe County Will give a larger Democratic majority this fall than ever before. illlULES & REGULATIONS LIST OF PREMIUMS OF TUB Monroe County Agricultural Society, TO BK IIBLD AT Thursday and Friday, Oct. 15 & IG.

Jus Williams, -Chairman Dem. Ex. Com. Monroe Co. The Negroes' President. "As in 1861, the nation now can be saved only as a nation of justice aud lib erty. To his amazement Lincoln found himself the emancipator of the slave.- To his equal amazement Grant- will find himself borne up and onto the shield of the negro. We 6aid, in Norember,1860, 'for the first time in our history the slave has elected a President.' . The first day of January, 1863, justified the assertion. If, which may God grant, this November sends Grant to the White House, we shall say 'the negro has elected his Pres ident' may the future justify us am--ply- Wendell Phillips." Voters! What better ; evidence than the above do you want, that the whole legislation and aim of Radicalism, is the negro ? Phillips says if Grast is clec- ted: "We shall say, THE NEGRO HAS ELECTED HIS PRESIDENT." - Vote for Seymour and you, white men. can say ; "THE WHITE MAN HAS ELECTED HIS PRESIDENT." Democrats!'
