The Republicans ortsauw ConntjM are invited to meet in Mass Convention, at the Court House in Gallipolis, on Saturday, Jane 3d, 1876, at 1 o'clock P. M., for the purpose of nominating one Commissioner, one Infirmary Director and one Coroner. Also, for the transaction of such business as may properly come be fore the Convention, including the appointment of a County Executive Committee, and the selection of fif teen delegates to represent the Coun ty in the Congressional Convention. Every Republican in the county is invited to attend, and take part in the work of the Convention. Come out, and let us open the Centennial cam paign with a live meeting. L. W. MAUCK, S. Y. WASSON, .r. J. J. POOL, . -!' N. B. SISSON, , VM. NASH, Committee. The Kentucky Republicans held their State Convention at Louisville on Thursday. They present Bnis- tow for President in words that -would stir the patriotism of the most indifferent. We copy from the Cincinnati Gazette report: The following section was read, and caused great applause, hand-shaking, and hat-throwing: "As Kentucky cave Abraham Lincoln to his country and to mankind, for the great-work by lilra, she now presents Benjamin H. Brlstow to complete the correction ot tne ills ever incident to war. His past conduct in office is an earnest evidence of his future course. He has been true to Republican princi ples in war and peace, ever manly, calm and courageous, and ever faithful in the discharge of his duties. His persistent and successful warfare against corrup tion deserves the thanks of all the friends of honesjt government. In thus presenting and commending our fellow citizen to the Republican National Convention, we are not unmindful of the distinguished services and wortli of other Republicans. We trust that the Cincinnati Convention will present as candidates such men whose allegiance to the party has been proved, and who have the moral courage to enforce the law. Up to this point the proceedings had been tame enough, but lending the re port by the districts of their delegates to Cincinnati, Hon. W. S. Goodloe, of Lexington, took the stand. For about twenty minutes the Convention was raised to the highest pitch of enthusi asm by the fervid eloquence of the speaker. Alluding to the objections to Bristow's nativity, he said the men of the North did not know WHAT IT HAD COST TO BE A UNION MAN in the South during the days of '61-'C5, "It was easy enough to be a Union man in the North, sbutup within her se cure borders, but in Kentucky it was a man's very life. It is no wonder that . the Union men of Kentucky cling to the Republican party as the Christian clings to his cross. They refer to Johnson Andrew Johnson, if born on the soil of Massachusetts and in Faneuil Hull, would have been the same political apostate and traitor that he was, and BenjminP. Bristow, if born under the palmetto tree, would have been the same pure and incorruptible patriot tnatnc is to-uay." The Great Family Row. The Ohio Democracy came, togeth er in State Convention, at Cincinna ti, last Wednesday. It was an ex citing meeting. It was a battle for leadership between the forces of Al len and Thurman. The factions were of nearly equal strength, and the struggle was a bitter and protracted one. Allen came out ahead, and the Thurman men retired in disgust, filled with bitterness and threatening mutiny. The Gazette says: The Democrats yesterday achieved a great victory over the Democracy. They split the party, and sent half of it home howling execrations on the other half. They adopted a platform which has no more promise of a currency blessing than simply the substitution of one kind of paper, for .another oquitllj- as good. They Indorsed a candidate who has no supporters abroad, and who,-at the last election In Ohio, was beaten in the pop ular vote. They dispatched one Presi dential candidate, but did not set up an other. Yet It, was a glorious Democratic victory. The Enquirer characterizes it-as a "triumph of the people over the pol iticians, of Democracy over preten ders." It is a triumph over which Republicans can rejoice, as itf has raised an issue, says the Commercial, that will rend the. St Louis Conven tion, as the bowels of this Convention were torn in its delivery. It was a triumpii'.'jtbat will make easy a Re publican victory in Ohio in October. s Athens county Democrats have . j0 Icausepf complaint she was depriv ed 'ofjfaer full representation in the Cincinnati Alien Convention. ' One of her delegates got drunk, and was sent to'thepolicc lock-up. The new platform of the Ohio De xaocracyj' .the Cincinnati Commercial coBeladesy "is a raggeder rag-baby than that" of last summer." TnFprocecdings of the Democratic State .Convention are inspiriting reading for a Republican. a A teeeible steamboat disaster is reported. The side-wheel Evansville and Cairo packet Pat Cleburne, whue trying to land alongside of the Ar kansas Belle3 miles below Shawee town, .-at 11 o'clock on Wednesday night, erpfoaedTier boilers, took fire and burned to the water's edge. Fif ty or sixty feet of the Arkansas Belle was wrecked, and both chimneys knocked down. Over thirty lives are reported lost The Captain of the Pat Cleburne, D. G. Fowler, was caught in the debris and burned to death in sight of his own and the Belle's crew, who could render him no assistance, Ik the battle between the Politicians and the People in this city yesterday the power of earnest men devoted to a cause was made manifest. The politicians had the party machinery; they packed the Convention so far as able : thev misrep resented whole counties; they had mon ey and they had discipline, hut they couldn't stand before the will 01 me people. Cincinnati Enquirer. "The will of the people," indeed! ndaGallia. a few of the "Politi cians," chronic ofHCB-scekoro, met in the office of the Bulletin one dark evening, and packed their Allen dele gates, and this the Enquirer calls "the will of the people!" The people had no more to do with the matter than the good pf the country had to do with the Convention. It was a packed convention all the way through, and it turns out the Allen men were the most successful pack era. Thh Money power inside of the Dem ocratic party is making hot and lurious war upon William Allen. The bankers and bondholders who call themselves Democrats arc all shouting for Thur- man. Cincinnati Enquirer. The .Eleventh District, whose con gressman is for Allen and green backs, sends a "banker and bond holder" a delegate to the National Democratic Convention, and accord ing to the Enquires classification he shouts for Thurman. Is there dis cord in the Eleventh District, or is the party secretly for Thurman and hard-money, 'while openly for Allen and greenbacks? Who can tell? The Volksfreund, the leading Ger man Democratic paper in Cincinnati, refuses to accept of the action of the Bill Allen convention. It says: We do not recognize tlie platform so far as it relates to tlie finance question, but ap peal to the National Convention in St. Lonis. we nope better principles will prevail there than was the cage here. So tar as the Instructions for Allen are con cerned, we hold them to be without sig nificance. Allen has no chance of being nominated at St. Louis. This is an important break in the democratic column. Vance's associate in working up the business of the Government printing office, is a member from Mississippi, named O. R. Singleton. The Washington correspondent of the Cincinnati Enquirer gives -brief history of the man. He was a secessionist of the-rabid style. The following incident of his intense ha tred of the Union i3 related: I well remember hearing a friend describe an interview he had with him at the Burnet House, in Cincin nati, when the country was on the eve of war. In discussing the ques tion of secession Singleton gave way to his passions, and, grasping a tobacco-jar tha stood at hand, livid with rage, he dashed the glass vessel in a thousand pieces, saying: "There! If I had the power I would dash this Union in as many pieces as that!" . This man is a model investigator of Republican officials. No doubt he would be happy to investigate Grant's Vicksburg campaign. A cokuespondent of the Columbus Dispatch is authority for the state ment that the Railroad from Grand Haven, Michigan, to Gallipolis, rep resented by Mr. Gibbs, is now well nigh assured by the sale of ten mil lions of dollars of its bonds. The road is regarded with good favor by j the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad, and by the people of Milwaukee, Wis., a point of grain export almost, as ex tensive as Chicago. The correspon dent predicts an early commencement of the location of the road. The National Prohibition Conven tiori met in Cleveland last Wednes day. Hon. Green Clay Smith, of Kentucky, was nominated for Presi dent, and G. T. Stewart, of Ohio, for Vice President Sat to a Democrat "Well, Allen carried off the honors at Cincinnati," and in almost everv instannp. Jioj-!ii opijr tu a solemn, stuttering way, L"Oh, sh shucks." Pendleton's action in the Ken tucky Railroad claim hasn't damaged him with the Ohio Allenites. He was madeJPresident of the Cincinna ti Conyention. Eastern democrats declare their conviction that the course pursued by theTDhio Democrats will render Na tional success by that party in the coming campaign an impossibility. : "The Ohio Democratic Convention hag covered itself with disgrace and derision," says the Baltimore Gazette, Democrat. The Democratic organ at Cleveland, says the platform means "inflation and repudiation." 'We are sorry for the good name of the coun ty, that the-Gallia delegates aided in this disgraceful business. A teerifio storm of wind; rain and lightning passed over Columbus and vicinity Sunday, prostrating fences and streets. trees, and flooding the President.

Cin. En quirer. YeS, and besides, "some idea" of Democratic corruption, for the "money power" here referred to was altogether Democratic- -There has never been a more corrupt transac tion in this country than that which has recently occurred in Connecticut in5onnection with the nomination of a United States Senator. Money, hnldlv used, bought the position. All the parties to it were and are Demo crats the Legislature and the can didates and these are the men that propose to reform governmental af fairs! There were two candidates for the nomination, English and Bar num. English is said to have spent notlesstb.au $20,000 in the contest, but Barnum is supposed to have spent a much larger sum, as he came off conquerer. It seems to have been on a level with what Democrats charge" m regard to the election of Senators by carpet-bag legislatures in the South. There is no political reform snch men. If corrupt in seeking of fice, they will be corrupt in office. In addition to the Bill Allenites of Ohio, another political organization has sprung into existence demanding of the government an issue of green backs equal to their wants. It ap pears under the name of the "Green backers." Its National Convention was lfcld in Indianapolis last week. An attempt, was made to capture Ohio's Bill Allen and make him their candidate for President, but the old man replied that he could not go out of the Democratic organization to accept nominations. They then nominated Peter Cooper, of No York, for President, and Newton Booth, of California, for Vice Presi dent. Cooper is only 88 rears old but it is said he too declines th honor. What a pity it is the governmen won't give these men all the money they want, so that they can continue to live in idleness. For the Gallipolis Journal.

Tlie people armed, turned out in mass, and was soon reported that the animal had been seen, and a horrible description was given. The search continued every nignc ior more tnan a week; hounds Irom all parts of the county were sent for, some of which it was reported got tore an to atoms.

From the Chillicothe Gazette.] Congressman Vance, of tie 11th Ohio-District has introduced abill to remove the Land Office and records of the Congressional and Virginia Military Land Districts in this city to Columbus TlifuPortsmouth Times of lastweoK contains tt-wrnrrrutatoes, article commending the bill. In the bill itself, as well as the article in the Times, we think we sec the haudi workot Ralph Leete, the President of the Board of Directors of the Ohio Agricultural College, for what does Congressman Vance know or care about the Virginia Military Dis trict? Nothing. Ralph Leete does care. As agent ot the College he gets thirty-three per cent, on all "un discovered" tracts of land he can find. He is the prosecutor in all the cases which have grown out of the grant of unsold land in the State to the Agricultural College, and thus far has reaped the principal benefit of the act The records are to be removed for his benefit, where he can obtain freer access perhaps, than the officials here ailow. It is to the interest of the people of the Virginia Land District that the records remain just where they are at least until all the suits likely to grow out of the Agricultural Col lege arc settled. The records contain the evidence of title to half the lands in this district, and we regard it as of the utmost importance that thi9 evidence be left iu hands where there will bs no temptation to tamper with it that it remain in the hands of the people, and be not turned over to their prosecutors.

[Special Dispatch to the Cincinnati Times.] WASHINGTON, May 18. DON'T LIKE THE OHIO BRETHREN. There Is very general dissatisfaction among Eastern Democrats, with the ac tion or tne onio uemocrauc conven tion, yesterday, on the financial ques tion, and several do not hesitate to de clare their conviction that the course pursued by the Ohio Democrats wIu render national success by the party in the coming campaign an impossibility. There Is a morbid determination on the part of these Democrats to take imme diate steps to kill on the unio move ment. At 1 o'clock Saturday afternoon a se vere storm passed over Pittsburg, Pa. it was of short duratun, lasting not naif an hour, butdld considerable dam age.

Perry Savage, a young man twenty-three years of age, who lives in Gallia county, Ohio, was yesterday morning struck by a train on the Ma rietta and-Cincinnati Railroad, about a mile and a half from Ludlow. It seems that Savage, seeing a passen ger train approaching on one track, jumped off upon the other line, when he was struck by a freight train coming the other way. He was thrown out the track and picked up in an uncon scious condition by Andrew Schaffer and John Smith, of St Bernard, who brought him to the Cincinnati Hospi tal in an express wagon. He ap pears to be suffering from concussion of the brain, and has a frightful scalp wound on the back of his head, but the physicians think he will recover. Cin. Com. of Saturday. Live Stock Markets.
