By putting forth this circular in ample lime for eviry one to get a knowledge of the law before the day cf registration, Judge Oicet has done more service to the people of the State, than will West, and Sugrman and the rost of them in all their roaring campaign speeches. We venture to say thai no lawyer In the State, other than a mere pettifogger, will dissent from a single proposition which the Judge lays down; nor can any man living tell by its contents only whether it was wiitten by a Democrat or a Republi can. There is not a word in i's composi tion of partisan comment " It merely makes intelligible to the men who must execute it, their duties, aud to the men who fall under its provisions, their rights As any complete synopsis must inevi tably do, this shows, without a word of partisan comment that when clearly an derstood, the law is harder on the poor, who impelled by stress of hard times, must move more frequently, than npon those who have homes of their own, paid for.. Thi poorer class are hit hardest by the law, because, under it; they are com- pelled to lose time in registering which ought to be employed in gaining their dai ly bread.or lose the votes which should be employed iu putting their oppressors out of power. If the mnjirity of the men tobedis frapebised by this law had been Republi cans, its advocates would have denounced it as an set to deprive poor men of their votes." t " It is thinly veiled under the wretched pretext of protecting the - ballo t-box. Think a moment of such men protecting the ballot-box 1 The very men, who but a few months ago, were making the wel kin ring with cheers, and were illumina ting every city with bonfires and torch lights, becaus they had secured the Pres idency by the greatest and vilest frand ever' perpetrated on Ihe ballot-box in America! TOoodftfleld Grange Picnic. On Saturday the Patrons of Husband ry held a picnic in the Floral Hall of onr Fair Grounds. The estimate of the num ber present was in the Ticinity of five hundred. Among them we observed many of the most esteemed of the older elass, and some of the more promising of the younger class. For beauty, -or what is well named "good looks," among the ladies, it com pared favorably with any gathering of a like number, to be seen in this region There were matronly ladies ' whose charms seemed to be improved by the lime which has made them wiser aud better. Their very appearance proved that they lived in homes made enjoyable by their management and handicraft And then the younger ladies but it is no use trying to write a aesenpuon oi them in their presence their ' beauty beats onr pencil two to one. , , A sumptuous dinner was spread, am pie in its proportions for all present We had the honOr of partaking of the repast between Hon. S. H. Elus, the orator of the day, and Mr. Davio Kennon, of Guernsey County, for which we all feel very grateful to. the skill and hospitality of Mrs. John Smith, of Wayne town ship. ... , .. . . ,' The dinner being disposed , of, Mr Thomas Wat introduced Mr. S. H. El lis, Grand Master of the State, who de livered a splendid oration. - It was well worth listening, to, not only by every one who belongs to the order, but by everyone else.' Mr. Datid Kennon then delivered an address, which was lively and pungent, and highly enjoyed.. It was altogether a decided success, and was conducted in such good or der as to convince all outsiders that the Grange has taught, among other things, the amenities and courtesies of life. ' '-'v:- : Ualr Splitting. The' Working-men's party was not large, but it has shown that it was large enough to split not merely taking a slab off but splitting in two exactly iu the middle. : The Cincinnati region was strong enough in their State Convention to se cure nearly , all the candidates, and to dictate the platform. The candidates generally, if they had "horny hands," kept their delicate palms and fingers neatly clothed in" elegant kids.. They were merchants, lawyers and almost anything else but men whose bands were hardened by toil. The platform is even worse than that of the Republicans in the direction of communism, and is ... probably the very worst ever put forth from any respectable body in Ohio The men - who represent the party in the Centra? and ; Northern part of the State disowned both platform and candi dates, and ' hare' called another Conven Hon.. ' - - ... This working-men's party has nothing in common with" r the Grangers, as the former is purely political, while the lat tcr, as- we - are- informed, expressly ex eludes politics from its organization.

JUDttG J. W. OKEtf l&S MADS THS fOtAOWISO S nr p.-Is of ihe Registitttioa Law. At the late session of the General As sembly a statute was passed which id knottn as the Registration Act. It i undoubtedly a very unjust law: but it is The substatice of the Registration Act, with the Constitutional provisions, and other nets rtlaling to the subjeet, may be briefly stated as follows: Woo Cannot Vote I. Under the Constitution,, no one can vote, whether the head of a family or not, unless he is a male citizen of the age of 21 years, nor unless, at the time or Lis election, be has been a resident of the State one year. 2. L inter the Registration Act, if a pert on, whether the head of a family or not, removes from one county to anoth er. retween the Bih day of September, 1877, and the 9h day of October, 187?, he cannot vote, whether he has register ed or not. 3 Under the Registration Act, if a man who is not the head of a family, re moves from one township, village or watd, in the same or another county, be tween thn 19th day of September. 1877, and the 9,h day "of October, 1S77, he cannot vote.whether he has registered or not. 4. No Idiot or insane person can vole ; nor can a person vole who has been sect to the penitentiary of this State, or the penitentiary of another State.for a crime punishable In this State by imprisonment In the penitentiary, unless judgment has been reversed, or unless he has been re stored to citizenship. ' 5 No person can vote, if it is his du ty to register, and he fails to do so. Who Cannot Resisteb. 1. A person who has not been a resident of the State continuously since October 8, 1876, and a resident of the county from the 8ih day of September, 1877, until the day of registration, cannot register. 2. An idiot or iusane person "cannot register. Wno Need Not REOisTr.it One who ha9 been a resident of the State since October 8, 1876, a resident of his coun ty since Oo.ober 13, 1876, and a resident of bis township, village or ward since October 18, 1876., need not register, and if his residence remains the same until the day of election he will be entitled to vote without registration. Who Must Registe. I. One who has not been a resident ot his county ever since the 13th day of October, 1876, must register or he cannot vote. . 2 One who has not been a resident of his township, village or wad ever 9ince the lth day of October, 1876, must reg ister or he cannot vote Head or Fahilt, Change or Resi dence If a man who is the bead of a family removes from one county to an other between the 8tb day of September, 1877, and the day of election, we have seen that ho cannot vote. But if at any time during that period he removes into another township, village or ward of the same county, he may vote therein. If he is by law required to, and does regis ter before such removal, he must produce statement of such registry, hereinafter mentioned, when he offers to vote; but if he is not by law required to tegister, and removes subsequent to the day of registration, he may vote without such statement of registration. If the remo val is before the day of registration, it will be safest to register in the new township, village or ward, as the case may be, though probably this is not es sential. Mam Not Head or Family If a man who is not the head of a family removes from one county to another between the 8th day of September, 1877, and the day of election, he will not be permitted to vote, whether registered or not ; nor will he be permitted to vote if he is required by law to register, aud does register,and removes thereafter into any otner town j ship, village or ward ; nor will he be per mitted to vote In any case, unless he has resided twenty days in the township, vil- ge or ward where ne offers to vote Of course if he removes from his town ship.villsge oi ward at any time between October 18, 1876, and the day of ;regis tration, he must register in the township. village or ward into which be removes. Time for Registration The only time for registration is Friday and Sat urday, September 21 and 22, 1877, be tween the hoars of 8 o'clock a h. and 9 o'clock p ii. Place foe Registration. The only place - for registration is the usual place ' of holding elections in the proper town-' ship, village or ward. Before Whom to Register. l he reg isteru of voters are two men of opposite politics, appointed by the trustees of townships, councils of cities and villa ges, or if the trustees or councils fail to discharge theduty.it must be performed by the clerk of the township or mayor, as the case may be. How to Register. At the time nam ed, that is Friday or Saturday, Septem ber 21 or 22, the person whose duly it is to register must go before the regis ters, at the proper voting place of his township,' village, ward or precinct, be tween 8 o'clock a. m. and 9 o'clock p. u , and make and subscribe a statement, in a book kept by the registers,which stater ment shall contain bis name, his last pre ceding place of residence, the ward or voting precinct in which be expects to vote, the place of his residence therein, the date of his removal thereto, his age, and whether married Or not The regis ters shall, at the time, make, sign and deliver to each person so registered, a corresponding statement, with like num ber and date, which. certificate be must present to the judges of election, at the polls, on election day, at the time of of fering to vote. . Caution to Electors Endeavor to register on Friday .September 21, as soon I If vou have any doubt whelheritis your dnty, under the law, to register, do not fail to make application to the regis ters in j-our township, village, ward or precinct, as the case may be,at that time. - Reference to the Law for Other Matters. Other matters of detail as to the appointment and qualification of registers, and their - powers and duties, and the duties of judges of election, can not be set forth at this place nor can we set forth the special provisions with respect to the. five large cities of the State Cincinnati, Cleveland, Tbledo.Go lumbus . and Dayton.

Cable Telegram to the New York Herald.J A GREAT BATTLE IMMINENT. London, August 21 The Hertld's special correspondent with the Turkish army in Bulgaria telegraphs that, as a junction has been effected by all the forces under Mehemet Ali and Suleiman Pasha at Stratnregcs, the Turkish Com mander is resolved to offer battle to the Russians. .. THE GRAND DCKE NICHOLAS Has assumed personal command of the Russian forces, and, altogether, there will be over two hundred and ten thou sand men engaged A fcCSDAT BATTLE IN ASIA. The Herald correspondent at Kurkan dara telegraphs that the army of Gen eral Loris Slelikoff, the divisions of which were commanded by Generals Heyman, Devel and Kamaroff, attacked the Turkish line at three different points on Sunday. The engagement was very severe, and lasted without intermission for eight hoiirs. The fight began by A FURlobS CANNONADE From the Russian batteries all along the line, the Turkish artillery replying with great vigof The Russian fire was very well directed, and did great execution among the masses of Turkish .infantry posted behind their works. Under cover of their artillery tire the Russian infan try moved out and ADVANCED TO TnE ATTACH Of the Turkish position. The advanc ing Russian columns were subject to a terrific fire from the Turkish batteries, but the men moved briskly on, taking advantage of every accident of ground that afforded a cover, and their skir mishers keeping up a lively fusilade. When they came within a short distance of the Turkish line, they dashed forward, and swept in on the astonished Turks with an impetuosity that OVERCAME ALL RESISTANCE in an incredibly snort time. Alter a short and sharp struggle the Turks were driven out of their intrenchments at the bayonet's point They retired sullenly to tneir second line, under cover or a brisk cannonade, which kept the Rus sians at a respectful distance. THE SECOND TURKISH LINE, Being extremely strong, and completely dominated by heavy batteries on some heights in the rear, the Russians did not make any attempt to capture them. The attack wis really a feint intended to keep the attention of the Turks occupied while a movement or ' OREAT STRATEGIC IMPORTANCE Was being carried out in another direc lion. A constant fire was kept up du ring the greater part of the evening, but toward nightfall the Russians retired on their former position, according to the plan already determined upon. The engagement lasted eight hours, and the loss on both aides was heavy. The Russians had 304 men killed and 76 wounded- Among the latter are Tour officers, viz: Major. Esigoferitzcb, Cap tain Mocllhoff, and Lieutenants Makro poloff and Comoroff. Thi Turks are reported to have bad 1,500 men killed TUB S IV AMP ANGEL. The Remarkably nailery tbat Threw Sbol Into Charleston, Five Miles Awajr. f General W. II. Davie iu Philadelphia Weekly Timet. At this period sprang into existence a battery built in the marsh between Mor ris and James Islands, which has be come famous as the "Swamp Angel," and as such will go down to history. Its construction was early determined upon, and the suggestion, we believe, was that of Colonel Serrell, command ing the New York Volunteer Engineers It was expected that shells thrown from it would reach the city and probably cause the enemy to evacuate The spot chosen was almost a mile from Morris Island, and nearly on . a line between what-wcre known as the "lert batteries" and Charleston, on the edge of a deep creek that served as a wet ditch. On reconnoitering the locality it was found that a pole could be run down sixteen feet anywhere thereabouts before com ing to bottom. The active part of the work was assigned' to a lieutenant of en gineers who, when shown where the bat tery was to be built, pronounced the thing impracticable. The' colonel re plied that the project was practicable, and the battery must be built on the spot selected. The officer was directed to call for anything he might deem nec essary for the work. The next day be made a requisition on the quarter-master for one hundred . men, eighteen feet high, to .wade through mud sixteen feet deep, and immediately called on the sur geon of his regiment and inquired if he could splice the men if furnished. This piece of pleasantry cost the lieutenant his arrest, and the battery was built by men of ordinary stature.- A heavy foun dation of pine logs was laid in the mud, on which the battery was built entirely of sand bags. .The timber was hauled several miles from Folly Island. The bags were filled with sand on the island and taken to the battery in boats. ' Alfl the work was done at night, for the eyes of a watchful enemy were upon all our movements. They knew we were at some mischief ao far out on the marsh, but did not realize the truth, until, they looked across one bright morning, and sa w that, like Jonah's gourd, a battery had grown op in the night It was com menced on the 4tb, and completed on the 19th of August The sand-bags cost five thousand dollars. The battery was mounted with a two hundred-poun der Parrott and great labor was required to put it in position. It was hauled to the edge of the marsh, where It was em barked on a raft in the creek, and thus floated down to the battery. The dis tance from Charleston was eight thous- and eight hundred yards, and tue gun was fired at an elevation of thirty-five degrees. The strain on it was such that it burst at the thirty-fourth discbarge The "Greek lire," of which so much was said, was the greatest humbug of the war. Nothing of the kind was used during the siege. Three shells filled with ordinary port-fire were fired into the city of Charleston, but' everything beyond this was due to the fancy of newspaper correspondents. The dis tinctive name of "Swamp Angel" is said to have been suggested by Sergeant Feller, ol the .New xork Volunteer hn gineers.. "Can be,; ought to be, and wiH be exe cuted."

The destruction of the industry of the country and the pauperism of labor are the inevitable fruits of vicious laws enacted by the Republican party. 3. That, as a means of relieving the distressed portions of the community, and removing the great stringency com plained of in business circles,' we de inand the immediate repeal of the Re sumption Act 4. That we denounce as an outrage upon the rights of the people the enact ment of the Republican measure demon etizing silver, and demand the passage of a law which shall restofe to silver its monetary power. o. luat we favor the retention ot green oacu currency as the best paper money we have ever had, and deolare against any further contraction. b. We congratulate the country upon tue acceptance by the present Adminis tration of the constitutional and pacific policy of local self government in the States of the South, so long advocated by the Democratic party, and which has brought peace and harmony to that sec tion of the Union. 7. The Registry law framed by the last Legislature is burdensome and ex pensive, and discriminates unjustly against the poorer class of voters, and we therefore demand its immediate re peal. 8. We favor a tariff for revenue only. 9. We favor the issue by the General Government alone of all circulating medium, whether paper or metallic, to be always oi equal tender, and intercon vertible. 10. That we condemn the acts of the Feqeral Administration in using the reg ular troops of the United States to in terfere with elections and other political affairs of the States, as unconstitutional, unlawful and unjustifiable, destructive of the rights of the people and the States. 11. We recommend the ticket this day formed by the Convention to the favorable consideration and support of an citizens or the state. rilOBlTE lOtRT.
