WM. H. SASH, Proprietor. - Terms: $1 50 in advance, or $2 at the end of the year. GALLIPOLIS, FEB. 10, 1876. The Centennial Exhibition. ranee voted against the Centen nial bilL Portsmouth Sepubhcan. Of course he did. If the Govern ment has money to giveV "t you think that.it would b ch bitter to send some of it to the Sginersof the rather than waste it upon the Fhila delphia show? Bulletin. That talk about giving to "starv ing miners" is' simply the talk of a Demagogue, and we pass it by as un worthy of notice. But there is something more in this vote of our M. C. It was a vote to disgrace our government in the eyes of Foreign Nations. This Centennial Exhibition is a National affair. On the 3d of March, 1871, Con- cress Dassed an act providing "for celebrating the One-Hundredth An niversary of American independ ence by holding an International Ex hibition of arts, manufactures and products of the soil and mine in the City of Philadelphia, in the year 1876," and further, by "an exhibition of the natural resources of the coun- -,r .,i their development, and of ji its progress in those arts which bene fit mankind, in comparison with those of older nations." In further ance of this action, some months la ter, the President issued a proclama tion, in which he says: "I, Ulysses S. Grant, President of the United States, in conformity with the provi sions of the act of Congress afore said, do hereby declare and proclaim, that there will be held, at the City of ' Philadelphia, in the State of Penn sylvania, an International Exhibition of arts, manufactures, and products of the soil and mine, to be opened on the 19th of April, Anno Domini, 1876, and to be closed on the 19th of October in the same year." And he added : "I commend the celebration and exhibition to the people of the United States; and, in behalf of this government and people, I cor dially commend them to all nations who may be pleased to take part therein." Officers were appointed to take measures for the proper conduct of the enterprise. Thus started this exhibition; set on foot by authority of the Nation's Congress. It was not intended to be simply an American Exhibition; it was to be an "International Exhi bition," and in behalf of this plan, you will notice that the Presi dent commends it "to all nations' And more fully to carry out this idea, the Government sent out its in vitations to "All nations to par ticipate therein, that it might be what its origiuators intended, an "International Exhibition." Now let us see what a vote against the Centennial bill implies. Most of the Foreign governments have ac cepted of the invitation extended to them, and have signified their de sire and intention to take part in the exhibition. They are making their arrangements to do so; have appro priated money and appointed Com- ' missioners to - make effectual and creditable their appearance at the Exhibition, and thus- expressed a willingness to make it, what Con gress intended, a great International display of the products of the world. With these facts before us, how would it have looked to Foreign na tions if our government had refused to make this Centennial appropria tion? Have said to them, this is a "Ring" enterprise, and we - will have nothing to do with it? It would have disgraced our Nation before the whole civilized world. Suppose our M. C. should send out his invita tions asking the attendance of the elite of Washington, civil and official, to a dinner on a certain day, and when the time came he should disap pear, leaving his servants to enter tain the company. How would it look? The casesare parallel. And therefore we say, as we said in the beginning, a vote against the Cen tennial bill was a vote to disgrace the United States in the estimation of Foreign Nations. Harper's Weekly comments on the opposition to this appropriation, and says: "The House of Representatives, by a vote of 146 to 130, has passed the bill granting a million and a half of dollars to the Centennial Exhibition This is a result which every intelli gent person has expected. V ben the Government of the United States in vited foreign Governments to be rep resented at the Exhibition, it became by that act morally a party in the en terprise, and this was, of course, un derstood, as no foreign Government would have accepted an invitation to the entertainment of a purely pri vate company, and no sncn power could imagine that the United Mates Government was acting merely as master of ceremonies upon such an occasion to a local joint-stock asso ciation. - . R A. Harrison, Esq., having de dined to act as a member of the Su preme Court Commission, to which fce had been appointed by Governor Hates, the vacancy has been filled by the appointment of ex Supreme Judge Luther Da T.- ; : Toombs, of . Georgia, don't wan't amnesty. He asks to be excused, he glories in being rebel - A sDsaiTin baa been made by the Scientific America that each coun ty appoint some suitable person to AMilr n iddress on the 4th of July, this year, "tracing the history of that particular community dnringtbe past r from the tuM when it was settled, and including a sketch of its growth, industry, resources, pects, 4c" It is an admirable sug gestion and we hope to see it carried into execution. Who will move in the matter? We.cIlD the above from the Meigs County . News, and would add that the suggestion alluded to did appear in the Scientific America, but that about a month before thejatter said anything upon the subject, an edi torial notice appeared in the columms ot the Bulletin, which has been copied extensively all over the coun try. Some three weeks before the Bul letin appeared containing the above suggestion, we received from the Managers of the Centennial Exhibi tion a slip containing the very same suggestion. We laid it aside for fu ture use, and have it yet. A mere coincidence. ; Ik the proceedings of the Supreme Court for Tuesday, Feb. 1st, we find the followin No. 99. In the matter of Albert BealL Motion for a writ of habeas corpus. From Gallia County, Bv the Court: Bv provision of the act of April 7, 1863, (S. & S. p. 610, sec. 2) author izing the arrest on execution or a party against whom a fine has been adjudged, and his imprisonment un til such fine be paid or he be other wise discharged according to law is not uuconstitutional; and the pro vision applies to all cases where the party is so adjudged to pay a line, and it is not confined to cases where the party is adjudged to stand im prisoned until the fine and costs are paid. Motion overruled. This is aa important decision. It settles the principle, heretofore dis puted, that the party fined can be im prisoned for non-payment of fine, even when the judgment of the Court does not order the convicted to pris on in default of payment. The se quence of this decision is that where persons are ordered to stand commit ted until payment of fine, he shall so stand committed, Tbk following bill has been intro duced in the Ohio Legislature. It is of sufficient interest to our people to bear publication : Section 1. Be it enacted by the Oeneral Assembly of the State of Ohio, That all male persons subject to perform labor on public highways. by an act passed March 9, 1868, en titled "an act relating to roads and highways," whose lands lie on or are bounded by the Ohio river, or other navigable streams within the State, are hereby required to perform one day's labor each year, !etween the months of March and June, in plant ing willows in such a maimer as to afford protection to the banks of said streams during floods, high waters, and at other times. Sec. 2. The supervisor of the district in which such labor may be performed, shall inspect the same, and if be deem it sufficient in extent, and performed in such a manner as to fulfill the requirements and intent of this act, he shall give the proper receipt for the same, as though said labor had been performed upon the public roads and highways, and the persons performing such labor shall be exempted from performing one of the two days labor required upon the roads and highways, in accordance with the provisions of the act above mentioned. Sec. 3. All persons required to perform labor under this act, shall be subject to all fines and penalties, for failure to perform labor on the roads and highways, by the act of March 9, 1868, above mentioned. . Toombs, of Georgia, made a speech recently, in which he stated that the Democracy carried that .State by bribing and intimidating the colored vote, and that he used both his money and influence for the accora plishment of that end. Democratic papers who have disputed Republi can testimony on this point, will per haps believe Toombs. The storm of last week extended from the Rocky Mountains to the Atlantic coast, and was fearful in places. In Washington city one hun dred houses are reported unroofed. In New York it was equally severe. In Philadelphia much damage was done to the Centennial grounds. It was the heaviest storm of the winter. An awful event occurred at Robin son's Opera House, Cincinnati, Sat urday afternoon. During the per fonnanceof the Great Republic Alle gory, someone, without cause, raised (.hp ru et fi.n i . .j lc nuen a panic was raised, and the rush for the doors was wild and fearful, resulting in the death of nine persons, and wounding oi some seventeen more. The Ohio Senate baa passed a bill requiring persons to obtain special permission from owners to hunt upon all inclosed lands, and to do away with the necessity of posting notices to trespassers. The bill has to pass the House before it becomes a law. Tax public debt statement for Jan uary shows a reduction for the month of over one million and a half. The aggregate reduction for the last sev en months exceeds ten millions. Want of room compels us to cut dows our correspondence. We hope to get out of this cramped condition in a short time. ' Messrs. Bancroft A Rader, pro prietors of the Vinton Furnace, have been granted an extension by their creditors, we hear. We hope they may come out all right v For the Gallipolis Journal. Mr. Editor: Being one of the Commissioners of Gallia county, whom some of the people of Addison, and especially the egotistical mem bers of the Farmers1 and Mechanics' Club of Addison, delight to censure and abuse by your permission I will give to the readers r your valu able paper a plain statement of the facts in regard to the non-establishment of the road referred to. . I have not seen either Mr. Beman or Niday for some time, therefore I wish it un derstood that what I say I am indi vidually responsible for. As to the slanderous charge that we have al lowed private and selfish interests to override the lust demands or the peo ple," I simply demand an explana tion. In the first place there never has been a survey made on said road, that in my judgment the commission ers or "servants" would be justified in paying the compensation and damages assessed by the viewers, for the reason that the petitions have all been gotten up to sbun some one's property. The survey had on the petition of Mr. Bryan would probably have answered very welL but the viewers In their report, after recommending that the road be established, went on to say that it was not where the best could be made nor where it would do the least dam age to land owners, and the damages and compensation was assessed at $690. We thought if a better road could be made for less money that we had better dismiss the petition. In re gard to the survey had on the peti tion of Capt. Rothgeb which would have made a good road, but it was shaped to favor some of the property owners at the expense of the others, and run so as to strike the line be tween Gallipolis and Addison town ship some twenty-four roils from the old road, turning at a right angle run ning to the old road, then a right angle turn up the river and the same down the river and back to the ferry landing, necessitating the travel be low the ferry to either go around to the landing or to force a road across from the old to the new road ; and also shaped so as to call for a con tinuation of the change straight ahead to a cedar tree in the road on the lands of Mr. Trichler (as I hav heard expressed bv some or the in terested parties.) Therefore, be lieving that better ar rangements would be made (as I see there has been by the petitions be fore the people) was my reason for voting to dismiss the petition, know in;; that the Township Trustees had power to condemn land and keep the road in repair until such time as sat isfactory action could be taken by the Commissioners.

The general appropriation bill pre pared by Mr. McLain, chairman of the House Finance Committee, as sisted by the other able and vigilant members of that committee, makes, as I telegraphed you last night a sur prisingly gratifying reduction of ex penditures as compared with Mie similar bill of last year. No more striking comment upon 'the mis management of the late Democratic Assembly could be made than the statement of the simple fact that while they appropriated altogether in their general appropriation bill the enormous sum of $5,558,412, they failed to make provision to meet the indebtedness of the State, and left al most every one of the public institu tions in arrears at the end of the year. Thus they supplimented false economy in some directions with mis chievous extravagance in others. Mr. McLain's bill, while providing properly, for the necessities of the State and the public service, appro priates altogethor but $3,693,656. Taking the partial appropriation bill and this one together, the whole amount appropriated is $3,969,656 against $5,691,412 last year, thus ef fecting a total reduction of $1,721, 756. It would be too much to sup pose that the ideas of the committee will be adopted by the Assembly without any change;' but on the highly liberal estimate that a quarter ot a million dollars will be added to the bill in its progress through the two houses, there will still be enect- ed on the entire appropriations for the year, the large sum of $1,471,756 Notice. There will be a Social Dance at Addison, in Schaffer's Warehouse, on Feb. 14th, beginning at 10 o'clock, A. M. A cordial invitation is ex tended to all that wish to participate.
