This recovery is a very commendable thing, and the energetic agent no doubt deserves much credit for it r but the af fair is strongly suggestive of something not quite so agreeable. These bonds were.taken four years ago, and yet ;we never hear of their loss until we hear of their recovery. How mary more scores or hundreds of cases may there be of thefts and defalcations which are kept concealed? If there were no other reasons for putting the Democratic party in power, it is a sufficient one. that, they would be interested as partisans . in bringing to light arid exposing the frauds which it is the interest of the Republican party to conceal and deny.

After mapping out the course of legislation whjch it di rects the party to pursue, it now blazes out a path for the Governor to follow. It especially Insists that Alleji shall in troduce some grand and beneficent pol icy in order to establish the claims of his friends as to his statesmanship. .: The Governorship of Ohio is a very imited sphere for the operations of a great statesman. A position that Notes has filled can't be very roomy.; Earther more, if our memory has not been un faithful, it is but a little while since the Commercial said that a Governor of Ohio had nothing to do but to write, a thanksgiving proclamation once a year, and to pardon his friends out of .the pen itentiary.
