THE GREAT STRADDLER. His Opinion of Greenbacks in 1862 and 1878. HOW HE HAS CHANGED. As the Hon. Geo. H. Pendleton is to address the people in this place to-day, (Tuesday) we deem this a proper occasion to print an extract from his celebrated speech in the lower Hcusa of Congress, Jan. 29, 1SG2, on the issue of the greenbacks, and also an extract from his Colum bus speech, mado on the 10th of this month, and which will no doubt be substantially repeated here. We print the two extracts side by Bide, in order that they may bo the more easily compared. It will be seen that Mr. Pendleton, like Senator Thurman, has straddled completely oyer the wide chasm that separated his former opinions of the green backs from those which he now puts forth : it it GEORGE H. PENDLETON, DEMOCRAT, OHIO, JANUARY 29, 1862. "The wit of man has never discovered a means by which Eater currency can e kept at par value, except by its ipeedy, cheap, certaiu con vertibility into gold and silver. Un less convertible they always have depre ciated ; they always will depreciate; they ought to depreciate. You send those notes into the world stamped with irre deemability. You put on them the mark of Cai, and, like Cain, thy will po forth to I vaga bonds and fugitives on the earth. It re quires no prophet to tell what will be their history. The cur rency will be expand ed ; prices will be in flated ; fixed values will depreciate ; in comes will be dimin ished ; the savinps of the poor will vanish; the hoardings of the widow will melt away; bonds, mort gages and notes, every thing of fixed value, will lose their value; the necessa ries of life will rise; gold and silver, will be driven out of the country." In arguing the Consti tutional power to is sue legal tenders,Mr. 1 endleton taid: "I find no grant of this power in direct terms, or. as I think. by fair implication. Itisnotan acciden tal omission through inadvertency ; it was intentionally left out of the Constitution because it was de signed that the pow er should not reside in the f ederal Government." GEORGE H. PENDLETON, DEMOCRAT, DEMOCRAT, AT COLUMBUS, O., SEPT. 10TH, 1878. "The third class is our greenback paper money. Ithasactual value. It it not merely or chiefly a promise to jj. It6 value is meesured not by the ltWr ne cessary to make it, but by the capacity and function which the law gives it. It does not pay tires; it does not pay 4ebtsJ it does purchase ev ery necewary and convenience andcom fort of life; it passes readily from haad to uaiju at a vwne so uniform that ne man loses by it ; il per forms that kighest and chief function of all money : it affects exchanges of prop erty ; it is bo inter woven wi t h our whole industrial sys tem that whatever men may have thought of its con stituti o n a 1 i t y or original expediency, the wisest of its op ponents see no pres ent means of dislodg ing it without a shock of disaster. f?ecretary Sherman finds it an essential part, even the foun dation of ourcurren cy. Another pro claims it the idol of his affections, and every Republican or ator in Ohio exhausts his vocabulary in its praise. The rag babv has become an hon ored and honorable child of the house- nom. lie then re views the decision of the Supreme Court, quoting at great length, and says: "The Court not only did not hold that legal-tender notes is sued in time of war were alone constitu tional, but did hold thit legal-tender notes issued at any time as 'necessary and proper' means of executing any of the specified powers vest ed in Congresa, or 'other powers vested in the Government of the United States' were, constitutional." a in il its be a L. U. his the of his has and DICKEY. His Record in Congress. He Votes for the Infamous Wood Tariff Bill. FOR THE BILL TO ABOLISH NATIONAL BANKS, And Thus Increase the Burdens of Tax-Payers. Against the Bill to Make Greenbacks Receivable for Greenbacks Receivable for Bonds and Customs, And Against the Payment of the Morgan Raid Claims and Others of Like Character. Mr. Dickey's Congressional record shows that he voted for the "Wood Tariff bill," to take off the duties by which American farmers and me chanics are protected against for eign competition and low-priced la bor. The bill, though introduced by Mr. Wood, a Democrat, was fi nally defeated by the Republicans, with the aid of a few Democrats, but the fear of its passage cost the farm ers of Ohio and the West thousands of dollars by reducing the prices of their wool and tobacco below what they would have been had no such bill been introduced. Let the farm ers and mechanics of the 11th dis trict remember this when they come to vote on the second Tuesday of October. Mr. Dickey boasts that he voted to abolish National Banks and eub stitute greenbacks for National bank notes. This would have been in direct violation of the pledged faith of the Government never to increase the volume of greenbacks above 400, 000,000. But this is not ail. It would have taken from the tax du plicates ef the five counties in this Congressional district, several hun dred thousand dollars, which are now paid by the National Banks in the form of taxes, and to that extent would have increased the burdens of taxpayers. Let every voter and tax payer remember this, when he comes to deposite his vote. Again, Mr. Dickey voted against the bill which had passed the Repub lican Senate by 45 to 15, (introduced by Senator Ferry, a Republican) to make Greenbacks receivable for all Government dues. The bill was de feated in the House, Mr. Dickey vo ting against it, with Ewing and oth er professed greenback champions. The only explanation to be given of their votes is, that they knew if the bill passed, resumption tcould take place immediately, and thus deprive the Democratic party of one of its favorite campaign cries, that re sumption was impossible! It was a piece of sheer demagoguary, un worthy of an honest man, and. Mr. Dickey should be remembered at the polls for thus playing into the hands Ewing & Co. It is true, Mr. Dickey excuses him for this vote by saying that Le afterwards voted twice for a bill to make greenbacks receivable for cus toms. But on both these occasions there was no possible chance for the bill to pass . On the first occasion, Jan. 21st, 1878, Mr. Southard, the author of the bill, attempted to pass under a suspension of the rules, but as this required a two-thirds vote, which it failed to receive, the bill was defeated. On the other occasion, June 20th, just before Congress ad journed, Mr. Southard again tried to get his bill through the House, and succeeded, but it was then too late to pass the Senate under the rales, ex cept by "unanimous consent. This failed to get, although the Repub lican Senate showed its willingness to pass the bill by a vote of 33 to 19. Mr. Dickey is thus shown to have voted against the measure at the only time when there was a chance for it to become a law, and he should be held responsible for assisting in it? defeat There are many farmers in this district who had horses and other property taken by the U. S. forces, during the Morgan raid in 18G3, and for which they Lave never received pay. On June 20, 1878, Mr. Turner moved to suspend the rules, and pass ioint resolution proposing this amendment to the Constitution : "No claim shall hereafter be paid by the United States, as damages or otherwise, for any property, real or personal, used, injured or destroyed, any of the States or Territories of the United States by theTJni ted States troops, or by order of any officer, civ or military, acting under tne au thority thereof, during the late war or the maintenance of tha Union." The effect of this resolution, if not express design, would of course to prevent the payment of the Morgan raid claims and all claims of similar character. It received only 24 votes in the House, and among these stands the name of 77. Dickey! Will the farmers of Clermont, Brown, Adams, Clinton and Highland, who had horses and provisions taken from them by the S. forces, in pursuit of Morgan, vote for Mr. Dickey, who thus by vote in Congress, declared that they should never be paid for their nrAnprfv? r"i' j WTe present this brief review of Mr. Dickey '6 Congressional record for I calm and candid consideration the voters of the 11th district, and for proof of its accuracy refer them to McPherson's Political Hand book, for 1S78, pp. 148, 149. Let every voter weigh well his duty to himself and his country before casting ballot, and we are very confident that many who supported Mr. Dick ey two years ago, will decide that he forfeited all claims to confidence, will vote for his opponent, Mr. McKnight I II. his full sun [For the News. "Patriots" versus "Scoundrels." drels." Editor News: In looking over last week's issue of the Hillsboro Gazette, my eyes fell upon the fol lowing paragraphs : A scoundrel named Smalls, who has just nnisned serving a term in fie Penitentiary, has been nominated for Congress by South Carolina Re publicans, but when whites and colored men unite in voting against such villains and defeat them, it is "terrorism," "intimidation," &c. The Democracy of Clark county, in which the city of Springfield is located, have nominated a colored man for the office of Infirmary Di rector, and he will be elected, too. He is a man of more than ordinary intelligence, and a sound Democrat. The colored voters of the county will give turn a solid support. Robert Smalls a "scoundrel !" A name that every colored American reveres and honors a name that sheds luster on that cause which fi nally crushed treason and saved the Union. It was Robert Smalls, whom the Gazette stigmatizes as a "scoundrel, who, during tho stirring 6cenes en acted in Charleston Harbor at the commencement of therebellion,when rebel hordes were preparing to make an assault upon me nag or tueir country, and to drive Major Ander son from Fort Sumpter, ran the steamship Planter safely out of Charleston Harbor, when surround ed on all sides by rebel vessels, and delivered it into the hands of the Union forces. For this patriotic and heroic deed he was honored by the American Congress, by being presented with a gold medal, and his constituents further honored him by electing him to the American Congress, where he has served them with credit and ability, but, as a part of the Demo cratic plan to make the South solidly Democratic, and to give his seat to a white Democrat, thus setting at defiance all justice, and utterly ig noring the rights of the large major ity of colored voters in Mr. Small's district, false charges were preferred against him, and in common with many other noble men of that State, he was struck down, and in defiance of testimony, law and justice, was sent to the penitentiary. Remem bering his patriotism, remembering his noble character as a man, his constituents have renominated him for Congress. Unlike the Democracy of Mont gomery county, Ohio, who, in the face of his infamous record, acquaint ed with the fact of his being a de serter from the army, a bounty - jumper, and an ex-convict from the Michigan Penitentiary, incarcerated there for grand larceny, elected the notorious John O'Connor to the Ohio Legislature, knowing him to be a disgrace and dishonor to the American soldier the colored men of South Carolina nominate a pa triot for Congress a man who has been honored for his heroism, and who has been only tha victim of Southern Democratic hate, and his incarceration in the penitentiary but a part of the plan of terrorism, in timidation and violence which the Gazette would make believe has no existenco. Smalls, the patriot, in the eyes of the Gazette, is a scoun drel. O'Connor, the scoundrel, a patriot ! The first, because a color ed man, utterly ignored, notwith standing his patriotism ; the last, condoned, honored and trusted, be cause a Democrat, notwithstanding his rascality ! As to Mr. William Dixon, of Springfield, referred to in the Ga zette as a "sound Democrat," the author of this communication has long been acquainted with him, and he is a gentleman, and a staunch Republican. He was nominated by the Nationals, and afterward put upon tne tail of the Democratic ticket, for party purposes, but has not accepted, and will not accept, a nomination from that party. TOUSSAINT. McKNIGHT'S CHANCES. What Leading Democrats Say. The West Union Scion says Hon. James Gordon, correspondent of the Cincinnati Enquirer, was in Georgetown last week, interviewing leading Democrats as to the situa tion in this Congressional District Judge Steele, of Hillsboro, informed him that "McKnight was quite popular man, with a fair standing at the Bar, and that it would require close and earnest work to elect Dick ey." Mr. L. B. Leeds, a well known Democratic politician, in reply to the correspondent's question as to the Congressional fight, said, "It will be close. WTe must work how ever, lor tue Jjegialature did not give us very much margin to go on." Hon. Eli Parker, Representative in the Legislature, concurred in the views of tho situation expressed by Mr. .Leeds. And yet in spite of these opinions of Democrats who know the situation, the Democratic county papers throughout tho Dis tiict endeavor to hold out the idea, 1 f - T . 1 A , . mat iu.cii.nigui aoes not stand a ghost of a chance. Come out, boys, and tell the plain truth, and that is that Mae is making the brush crack around you lively. W. W. McKnight tho next Con gressman from this District, paid Batavia a visit on Friday last, and held a levee in the evening in one of parlors of tho Davie House,where friends poured in to 6ec him in great numbers, and until a late hour. Mr. McKnight looks as fresh as a blown rose ; is as happy as a big flower, and will bud into a full fledged Congressman early in Oc tober. Batavia Courier. of to as Home Correspondence. Greenfield.

Miss Lizzie Pierce, of Washington C. II., has been visiting Miss Lelia Bell, the past week. Mr. Kirby Smith, of Hillsboro, was in town last week, "pulling taffy" for the boys. Judge Lawre ice, of Bellfontainc, O., is to address the p - jple on the political issues, in the City Hall, this (Tuesday) evening. The visits of politic'ans are becoming more frequent and numerous. But it won't last long. Mr. 1''. M. Parke, we are glad to state, has almost entirely recovered from his late illness. The S. J. & P. Ky. is now doing an im mense business, far exceeding the most sanguine expectations of its owners. The last old relic (the smoke stack) of the old planing mill at the foot of Main street, was thrown down last Tuesday. Mr. Nelson Squiershas sold his beautiful residence, on West Church street, to Mr. Chas. B. Smart. Mr. and Mrs. A. B.

Kcv. Thos. Collett preached his first ser mon since his reappointment, last Sunday morning. A crowd of about twenty went dawn to the Soldiers and Sailors' Reunion at Chillicothe last Thursday. $122.47 is Greenfield's subscription and donation to the vellow fever sufferers, and not $300. Miss Lillie Smith, of Hillsboro, has been the guest the past week of Mrs. II. L. Meek, on South Washington street. Hon. Hezekiah S. Bundy, of Jackson, O., spent a few days at this place last week. Mr. Hazlitt Kinkead, of R-verton, Ky., who has been visiting his parents at this place, returned Monday. Mrs. Elizabeth Love is now at home, after quite a long visit to friends in Buffa lo, X. Y. S.

He will speak at Leesburg on that evenine. Mr. Ed. Merchant, a former typo in the Highland Chief office, is row at this place. He left Tennessee m the run, to get away from the vellow fever. The African M. E. church celebrated their first quarterly meeting last Sunday, Rev. E. Cumberland, the newly appointed pastor, officiating. A horse valued at $150 was stolen fro u the barn of Mr. John Adams, near Center field, Saturday night. A bridle and saddle were also taken, belonging to Mr. S."riiuel Santee.

Poor tellowsl Ihey are not ne'r as b a d a club as they supposed themselves to be further particulars below. A horse and cart belonging to F. F. Marks, Cemetery Superintendent, created quite an excitement on Washington htree by running away, last Wednesday evening. No bones broken or blood spilt, but it was fun for the boys. The subscription list of the ews in Greenfield and vicinity is steadily increas ing. It now has the largest circulation at this post othce of anv paper published in the countv, outside of the Greenfield "Chief," the local paper. Mr. Llnah iracy, a well known iarmer, livine a few miles west of town, complain ed of being of feeling ill about 4 o'clock Mondav afternoon, and went to bed. liv 5 o'clock he was a corpse. Cause of death unknown. The Concert which was mentioned in last week's News, for the benefit of the fever sufferers, has been declared "off," caused by the fact, as stated by the suffer erers themselves, that no more money is needed, and that the fever is abating. W. H. Irwin, Esq., has been retained in the suit of Jacob roulke vs. Greenfield Buildine Association, and Jas. P. Simp son et al. vs. the same. This speaks well for this gentleman's legal abilities, as these cases are the most important that will come up before the District Court, wnich commences on the 25th. The stolen buggy robes mentioned last week's News have been recovered, but might not have been, had not the gentle man (.Mr. thas. Harper) who loiina them down on Washington street, seen the notice of the loss in the News and came and formed us of their recovery, when they were restored to the owners. Nothing like advertising. The Temperance people were very well entertained with an address on temper ance, in the M. E. church last Thursday evening, by Mr. John Noggle, who has created quite a reputation by his identifi cation with almost all the camp meetings in the three adjoining States, and is per haps better known as "Camp Meeting John. We acknowledge the receipt from the an thor, James H. Thompson, Esq., of Hills boro, of a copy of the "History of High land County." This is a very interesting work and contains a very lull and definite account of this county fr jm the time of its organization to the present year, and will be read with interest bv evcrv citizen in the countv as well as non-residents. A supposed case of yellow fever, and the subsequent death of the victim, a lady living on Hardin's Creek, was reported at this place last Wednesday evening. About tne only ground lor the tieiier that Her disease was yellow fever was, that the lady had spent a few davs on an excursion to Cincinnati, came home and a few days af terwards was taken wuh some kind ot fe yer, but that it was yellow fever we have good reason to doubt, although apparently well vouched. Nevertheless, this is iriven for what it is worth. A burglar or burclars, on last Wednes day night, attempted an entrance into the residence ot Mr. . V . Uell, on est Main street, but were discovered on the veranda, by a young lady visitor from Springfield. llh that coolness which is alwavscharac- teristic of women under such circumstan ces, she endeavored to light jux or more parlor matches at once, which doubtless gave the impression to the rascal that he was about to be fired on bv a full battalion at anv rate he left in a hurrv. There's pluck (?) Ihe impression seems to prevail all over the southern part of this county, that certain well-known and influential Kcptib- licans at this place are going to vote for Dickey, and are "on the fence" as regards the countv ticket. This is a mistake en- irelv, and has its oricrin solely in the brains of a few desperate and week-kneed Deruocrats.-who think bv circulating this An effort is being made bv the managers the Agricultural Society toenlarge their race track, which is now a third of a mile, a half. If this is accomplished it will add much to the appearance of the grounds well as to the popularity of our Fair, and it is to be hoped, that, as the mana gers are depending in a great measure on ublic subscriptions to raise the necessary funds, every one to whom the paper is pre- entea win sunscnoe ii?eraiiy. rumor to gain votes. Every one of the gentlemen whose names have been men tioned in this connection, avow themselves as going to vote the Republican ticket "without a scratch." About the drunkest man that ever walk ed, was the one put off the express train over the M. & C. last Thursday afternoon, at this place. After wandering about for some time he sat down on the main tpck and fell asleep. Providentially he was discov ered by one ef the depot hands, led across the side-track and put to sleep on a bank of gravel, where he slept until about 4:30 Friday morning. When he awoke he found he was out of boots, coat, shirt collar, neck-tie, lint and the contents of his pockets, which, however, was not very much. Ev ery thing which the th'eves could get from him was taken. He lived at Musselman's, but would not give his name. This place has for the past few months, not to say years, been annoyed by a gang of young rascals, who have properly gain ed the s rbriinet of the "ragged brigade," and whose only apparent mission on earth is to annoy decent people, especially after dark. .Within the past six or seven months the have become unusually troub lesome, particularly at weddings, for which they appear to have a great liking, and ev idently labor under the delusion that they have full license to destroy all the proper ty and make all the "fuss" possible. With their "horse fiddles," "rosined nails," &c, they make night terribly hideous. The sickness of parties in front of whose houses they happen to locate, has no effect with them, and nothing can or will scare them off except the officers or shots from a revol ver. If some of this gang were arrested and put in the "cooler," it might have a wholesome effect on the remainder, and would give unqualified pleasure and satis faction to the better part of the community. The Climax, our petted, sweet little base ball club, went to New Lexington Saturday. Of this fact they ore sure. They came back in the evening beaten of this they are equally sure. With much blowing and offering to go their bottom dollar, (15cents would have over-sized their pile) oh their "cleaning out" the New Lexingtons, they bo.-.rded the 2:01 p. ra. train, and with about twenty hangers-on, went down to show the Lexington's how to play base ball(!) This they did "in a horn" for it was, as subsequent events showed, a case in which the "biter jrot bit." They had "caught a tartar," and what is more, they can't let go of him, for there are two more games in the series. After they had got about all they wanted of it in the nine in ings, they boarded the train and arrived home on the 7:30 train, and a more forlorn, doleful-looking crowd never marched up Washington street than thev. Every moth er's son of them looked as if lie had just buri ed a dear friend, and their noses hung so low, that, with a slight stretch of the imag ation, they might have been takdi for a band of clarionet players! During the whole evening they kept themselves very scarce, not more than three of them being seen on the strsets, and it was only by chance that we got hold of the fellow with the score sheet, and here it is : CLIMAX.

City Fathers Mon day evening was not remarkable for any orilliant exploits. All the members with the exception of Blaine, were present. The Ordinance Committee presented that much talked of 9 o'clock and Sunday or dinance. This was killed in its infancy by a vote of three to two, but it will be brought before Council in a different shaie in the course of a few wce..as the citizens who are backing it are determined not to let fall throogh. xne nuance committee and CferK were instructed to settle up v.

This street is the one on which work has been aone the entire past summer, and the pros pect is, that when it is finished it will real ly cost more than it is worth.

Adjourned. GIBSON. The expiration of the bankrupt law has almost bankrupted the Democratic orators. It has reduced their political capital to the single "fraud" asset. The Belfast Journal, tho ablest Democratic paper in Maine, says "The Democratic party in Maini has disappeared; swallowed up by the new Greenback organization, which will digest it at leisure." No further back than 1873 Gen Ewing uttered these words : "The Democratic party has outlived its usefulness." The old Bourbons are expected to 'rah lustily for Thomas Ohio to Sound the Key Note. The Philadelphia Bulletin says : Ohio is the real battle-ground of the campaign. Its State election is held in October, so that the result of it will have weighty influence upon the November elections else where, and in Ohio the parties are so nieely balanced that the chances of victory for either side are serious ly uncertain. It is very gratifying to honest Republicans to find that the financial issue is 60 clearly defin ed in the campuign that there can be no doubt respecting the precise attitude of both parties. Garfield, Sherman, West, Grosvenor and others, speaking for the Republican party, have made an earnest plea for hard nionev, for resumption, and for strict fulfillment of the nation V obligations to its creditors, while Thurman, Ewing, Cary, and other Democrats, are boldly declaring for inflation nnd repudiation. If we car ry Ohio we shall carry it upon this question ; we shall win because we advocate safe and honest princi ples. It is not too much to say the Ohio election is one of the most im portant ever held in this country. Its verdict for or against the green back heresy will be surely decisive. The Memphis Avalanche goes in this way for one of the Memphis fugitives: "General Joseph B. Williams, who owns palatial stores on Main street, and who personally occupies a bomb proof position nt White Sulphur Springs, has contributed tho paltry 6um of 50, through the Citizens Relief Committee.
