Mr. Frederick Douglass recently made an address before a large audi ence at Pendleton, Ind. On the platform were seated several Indi anians who had seen Douglass mob bed and left for dead on that very spot, thirty-Eeven years ago. The woman who dressed his wounds af ter the mob had left him was ameng them. As Mr. Douglass referred eloquently to those events of far-off days, his audience pressed forward, nnwilling to lose a word, and there was scarcely a dry eye in tbe crowd. Gully.'one of the Chisholm mur derers, in Mississippi, and the last one on trial, has been acquitted. The Ne-T York Sun, the leading Democratic paper of New York, says in speaking of this fact : "Sneering at the blooJy shirt will not counteract the effect of scenes like this, faith fully described. They rekindle the spirit which raised and sustained the Union armies in the war, and . the politicians who think this Fpirit will down at the first bidding do not un derstand its power." Sensible talk. Just What it Means. Northern Democratic capers, like the Boston Post, are laboring to persuaaa their readers tnai tne claims brought forward for damages done to the South by the rebellion mean nothing, and nobody should be disturbed by them. "SVhy the la bor and expense in getting them up? Why have they been brought to the door of Congress? Does any one imagine that some thousands of Southern citizens have been amus ing themselves in this way, and these claims are all a joke ? By no manner of means. They are part of the eolid South idea, which the North is called on to give its support, in which Northern men are invited to join. Jacksonville (Fla.) Sun and Press. No Republican Teachers Wanted.

REMEM II KR THAT VPON YOUR VOTE DE PENDS THE SUCCESS OF THE DEMOCRA TIC TICKET. Wade Hampton's speech at Staunton, Virginia, July 26, 1830. Republicans of the townships', are you ready for the Vlth of October? Committee-men, are your rallying forces marshaled? Jj not, see to it in time. Let not a vote be lost for icant of honest, earnest personal ef fort to secure it. "If the Rejmllican party is suc rsnxful. me shall behold no more free elections, no more untrammeled ex pression of political sentiment." Wade Hampton. "The first thing to be done is to reorganize the red-shirt mounted clubs. Let every meeting, Demo rrtitir. or Radical, be fulhi attended by them." Aiken (S. C) Journal. The above paragraphs should be read together. The Solid South is the reorganized Southern Confederacy. Slavery has disappeared. In its place are claims for damages done during the war, and a demand for the expenditure of the money of the Nation in local jobs. We have the same old pre tensions on the part of the bouthern politicians, that they are by divine right the rulers of this country. Cincinnati Commercial. of Judge West's Speech at Music Hall. The Fpeich of Judge Wist, of Belk'fontaiue, Ohio, at Music Hall, last Wednesday night, was one of the finest efforts of political oratory our citizens have been privileged to hear for a long time. The Hall was filled with an audience composed of our most intelligent people, including many ladies, and for nearly two hours the eloquent orator held their eager and unwearied attention, while he dissected with his keen logic the pur poses of the "solid South," and show ed the danger to the peace and pros perity of the country which would result if the late rebel leaders were restored to full power. He replied to some portions of the speech of Judge Hoadley, made the night be fore, and proved by the record that he misrepresented the facts when he stated that Gen. Garfield took the "salary grab" and kept it until his constituents denounced it. On the contrary, the record shows that he never drew the money at all, but re turned the treasury warrant to the Clerk of the House almost as soon as he received it, and in less than a month after the bill passed. He also completely vindicated Gen. Garfield from the charges made against him in connection with the Credit Mobil ier and the DeGolyer Pavement, and expressed his regret that gentlemen of the Jhigh standing and ability of Judge Hoadley find it necessary to convert themselves into "mud ma chines," and go about the country. slandering the Republican candid ates. He drew a comparison of the military services of Gen. Hancock and Gen. Garfield, and showed that while Garfield volunteered and went into the field at the first call of his country, Hancock was a quartermas ter in California for more than a year after the war began, though he did his duty and fought bravely when he did go into the field. Judge e3t then showed up m a most vivid and' striking light, the true character of Gen. Hancock's celebrated "Order No. 40," and quo ted the testimony of Gen. Myer, the commander of the TJ. S. troops at Baton Rouge, La., while the order was in force, who witnessed Borne of the many bloody and sickening out rages committed upon Union men in Louisiana by ex-rebels, and for which the civil authorities of the State re fused or neglected to punish the per petrators. Twenty-three Union men were shot down and brutally assas sinated in' cold blood at one time in the Baton Rouge State House, by an armed band of about 800 rebel cut throats, net one of whom was ever punished! . Such was the state of af fairs in Louisiana, while the ex -rebel State authorities held control, under Hancock's much lauded "Order No. 40." No wonder Gen. Wade Hamp ton at Cincinnati pledged him the 138 votos of the "Solid South"! The peroration of Jndgo West's speech was one of the grandest flights of impassioned eloquence we ever heard, and fairly electrified the audi 6nee. lie invoked the spirits ol tne martyred Lincoln, andlhe thousands of Union heroes slain in. battle or starved in prisons, to look down up on the contest in which the nation is now engaged, to preserve the princi pies for which tbey died, and appeal ed to his hearers that the sacrifices made by our honored dend for Free dom and -Human Rights, shall not have been made in vain. At the close of his speech many of the audience remained to shake hands with the Judge and congratulate him upon his eloquent and masterly effort. Tho' blind, and compelled, through fee ble health and exhaustion from his campaign labors, to remain seated while speaking, his voice was heard distinctly throughout the large hall, and not a word was lost. It was a treat such as is rarely afforded our citizens, and we doubt not its effect upon all present will be beneficial and lasting. Republicans, Remember! The Cincinnati Gazette says : We can afford to lose Indiana, but we must not lose Ohio, or fail to carry it by a good majority. If Re publicans do their duty in Ohio in October, New York will vote sure for Garfield in November, as will also Connecticut and New Hampshire, and possibly New Jersey. Far more depends on Ohio than Indiana, and this is precisely what the Democrats understand, and it is this that is stim ulating them to work. If Republi cans carry Ohio and Indiana in Oc tober the jig will be up with cur op ponents. There would be no fight after that. And this ought to stimu late every man on our side in Ohio and Indiana to the hardest kind of work. And for this work' less than one week is left. Democratic Campaigning. The Douijcrafcs hive sent the Baud wagon to every township in the county. Besides the rnusiohns and a speaker or two, they have made up the load from lo ifers in the streets. These are the missionaries they have sent to our country friends, to instruct them how to vote. Detn ocrats here areashamed of the whole business, and we are confident no man's Republicanism has been weakened by such clap-trap election eering. The Band wagon started out with Dr. J. O. E. Allea in the spring, much ia the same way. It made a failure then, as it has now in the electioneering business. Tho odor of Dr. Allen's "lightning cure" clings to it. Beltzhoover's letter and Wade Hampton's Staunton speech seem to indicate that tbe harmony of the Northern and Southern Democracy depends upon the suppression of the honest thought of the members the respective wings. TO YOUNG MEN ! A FEW LEAVES FROM THE DEMOCRATIC WAR RECORD. VALLANDIGHAM FOR GOVERNOR OF OHIO IN 1863. "NOT MAN NOR A DOLLAR" WAR FOR THE UNION. LET EVERY YOUNG MAN READ AND REFLECT BEFORE HE VOTES. Many young men who. will cast their first vote this year, are not old enough to remember the disloyal and unpatriotic course of the Demo cratic party in Ohio during the war, and for their benefit, we print a few leaves from tho record, which we hope they will read carefully and then decide whether that party is worthy of their support. In May, 18G3, Clement L. Vallan digham was arrested and tried upon the following charge : "Charge Publicly expressing, in violation of General Order No. 38, from headquarters of the Ohio, sym pathy for those in arms against the Government of the United States, and declaring disloyal sentiments and opinions, with the object and purpose of weakening the power of the Government in its efforts to sup press an unlawful rebellion." He was found guilty and sentenced to confinement during the war in one of the fortresses. President Lincoln changed the sentence, and sent him through our lines to the enemy, where he rightly belonged. Noth withstanding his conviction as a traitor, the Democratic party of Ohio, in Convention assembled, at Columbus, June 11, 18G3, nominated him for Governor, by a unanimous vote. Ex-Gov. Medill presided over the Convention, and Geo. H. Pendle ton, Allen G. Thurman, Geo. H. Pugb, H. B. Payne, S. S. Cox, John G. Thompson, and many more of the present leaders of the Demo cratic party, took part in its proceed ings. George E. Pugb, of Cincinnati, made a speech, in which he said : "My fellow-citizens, I oall npon you, in the name of 180,000 Demo cratic freemen of Ohio, not to dis perse or go home, until you have de manded of Abraham Lincoln the restoration of the person you have nominated for Governor, and I ex hort you not to hear of anything else, nor talk or think of the rebel lion, of war or of peace, until he is restored to us, and if we fail, let us emigrate to some other country where we may be free." Subsequently, Mr. Pugb. made a speech, in which he declared that if Vallandigham were elected, the 180, 000 Democrats of Ohio would bring him from the Canada border to Co lumbus to take his seat, or perish in the attempt or words to that effect. Ins Convention also entered a "solemn protest against the procla mation by which Lincoln assumes to emancipate slaves in certain States, holding the same to be unwise, uti constitutional and void." The official records of the Govern ment prove that this convicted trait or Vallandigham, was at that time commander-in-chief of the "Knights of the Golden Circle," a secret order organized and armed to resist the draft, oppose enlistments, incite in surrection and hold communion with rebel emissaries in Canada. This order had its lodges in High land county, and held secret meet ings, at which its members were arm ed and drilled in military tactics, and reported regularly to their head quarters in this place. These are facts, which can be proved by living witnesses, if their truth is denied. While these disloyal proceedings were going on in Ohio, the Demo cratic leaders in Congress were ut tering such sentiments as these t Fernando Wood, of New York, said, in April, 18G4 : "There can be no such thing as a war Democrat. ... If the war is to go on I want the Republican party to carry it on. Ihey eaused it, and let them take the responsi bility." Two days before in Congress, Ben jamin G. Harris, a Democrat of Maryland, said, on tho floor of the Houses - "Xot one dollar nor one man, I swear by the Eternal, will I vote for this infernal, this stupendous folly, more stupendous than ever dis graced any civilized people on the face of God s earth. If that be treason, make the most of it. The South asked you to let her go in peace. But no, you said you would bring them into subjection. That is not done yet, and God Almighty grant that it never may be. Such were the treasonable utter ances of tue party leaders, at mat time, most of whom are still recog nized as its leaders. And while thousands of- patriotic Democrats refused to listen to their teachings, and bravely fought for the Union, the party, as a party, threw its whole influence against the war, op posed the draft, the issue of the greenbacks, and every measure neces sary for the prosecution of the war, and thus prolonged it and greatly increased its burdens upon the loyal people of the country. Young men, this is the truth of history, and cannot be denied. Can you support such a party, which now has the brazen impudence to claim that it suppressed the rebellion? Have a care how you cast your first vote, and be sure that you do not commit the folly of identifying your self with a party whose record is thus tainted with disloyalty and treason. Mr. Wm. H. English states that he took in those 392 pieces of proper ty "merely as a matter of conve nience." He does not remark how inconvenient it was for the other fellows. Cin. Commercial. THE ELECTIONS NEXT TUESDAY IN OHIO AND INDIANA, THE ELECTION. REPUBLICANS, ARE YOU READY? The best informed men of both parties agree that the result of the Presidential election depends largely upon the result of the State elections next Tuesday, in Ohio and Indiana. The Presidential battle in these States is therefore really to be fought in Oc tober. Hence the great importance of every Republican vote being cast next Tuesday. Let no Republican think of leaving the State until after he has deposited his ballot. That able and well-posted paper, the Cincinnati Commercial, which has made such a gallant and effective fight for the Republican cause in this campaign, gives the following timely advice to Republicans in both States, which we hope every Republican in Highland county will read and re member : Republicans in Ohio and Indiana can be assured that the Democracy are makiug tremendous efforts to carry both States in October. They were never more active than now, and are pouring out money as freely as water. Kentucky is under draft for a supply of voters for both States, and she honors such drafts, no matter what the amount called for. It is no holiday contest, the Republicans may be assured. While there is not the least danger in Ohio if the Republi can vote is fully polled, there is dan ger that many Republicans, feeling the State safe, may stay at home in October, thinking a vote in Novem ber all that is required of them, just to swell Garfield's majority over that for the State ticket. But the way to help Garfield in November is to vote for the State ticket in October. That is the vote that will count most in its influence on the November elec tion, not only in Ohio, but through out the North. It is vastly more im portant to poll a full Republican vote in October than a month later. The State assured in October makes it doubly sure at the Presidential elec tion," Elections in October. Maine having ended the State elections in September, the contests to be held in October become of in terest, They will be four in number. as follows i Georgia will elect on Wednesday, Oct. 6, State officers and a Legislature, which will choose a United States Senator. It should be noted that Georgia will not elect its Represen tatives in Congress at this State election, but will choose them on Tuesday, Nov. 2, the day of the Presidential election. Indiana will elect on Tuesday, Oct. 12, State officers, Representatives in Congress, and a Legislature, which will ohoose a United States Senator. Ohio will elect on Tuesday, Oct. 12, minor State officers, Representa tives in Congress, and county officers. West Virginia will elect on Tues day, Oct 12, State officers and Legislature, which will choose United Stateg Senator. The people will also vote on two proposed amendments to the Constitution of the" State one 'relating to courts, and the other to the right of trial bv iurv in certain cases. As in Georgia, the Representatives in Con gress in West Virginia will be elect ed on Tuesday, Isov. a. It may be addod that the town elections in Connecticut will be held on Monday, Oct 4, and that a pro posed amendment to the Constitu tion of the State will be submitted to the vote of the people, the amend ment providing that hereafter Judges of the Supreme Court of Errors and of the bupreme Court shall, upon nomination of the Governor, be ap pointed by the Legislature. Golorado, which has heretofore been "an October State," will this year hold its general election on Tuesday, Nov. 2. Tho Colorado Republicans claim the State by 5,000 majority or more. In 1878 the Republican majority was 2,82 i. Estimates based on the fig ures of former elections are unrelia ble in each a State as Colorado, since 10,000 or more new voters, or very nearly one-third of the whole nam ber, Lave settled in tue fetata since the last election. The Georgia elec tion will have no political signifi cance both candidates for Governor being Democrats. How the Soldiers Go for Hancock. Urn. Miles, of Wade, this county, enlisted in 1861, in the 7 th W. Va., and served under Hancock during his entire command of the 2d Corps Wm. Miles was a loyal Democrat and voted for BroUih in 186?. Since the war he has voted the Democratic ticket, but is convinced that the is sue is now as it was in 1861, and will vote the Republican ticket this fall. Mr. Miles relates aa Incident of Han cock's cruelty and profanity towards the volunteer soldier, that tallies with many others we have heard. His own lieutenant was badly wounded at Cold Harbor. He asked a brave young man to assist in carrying him to a place of safety. On his way to the Lieut, he was met by Gen. Han cock, who accused him of attempting to desert. The young man pointed to his Lieut., and said he was obey ing his request. Gen. Hancock called him a "coward" and told his Aide to shoot him, manifesting the most cruel feeling. Mr. Miles says not a man of his company, so far as he knows, will vote for Hancock. Marietta Register. The secession leaders, emboldened by their success and by the tame ac quiescence of the Government and the people of the country, are now pushing forward to capture the Na tional Government, under a flag of truce in the hands of General Han cock. Let the great North be warned of danger in time. We slept on a volcano in 1SG1, and another threatens now. Let no One be deluded with the idea that the timid, subservient Northern Democ racy will afford any barrier against the onslaught of these bold South erners, witn ntteen States at tueir back. The history of the past shows how feeble this barrier would be. ALL AROUND. WEEK'S HAPPENINGS IN THE COUNTY. INTERESTING EVENTS CHRONICLED BY OUR CORRESPONDENTS. THE NEWS OF THE COUNTY IN A NUT-SHELL. GREENFIELD. At the resilience of Mr. and Mrs. J. C. Norton, on East Main street, last Thursday evening, their daughter, Miss Lizzie, was united in wedlock to Mr. Wm. Anderson, of Lima, Ohio. Quite a number of guests were present, and a luxuriant repast was served after the marriage ceremony, which was performed by Itev. S. L. Buckley, of Alliance, O.

Having challenged the Leenburg baseball nine, our Climax went down Thursday eve ning to play a match game, taking four substitutes, which number of the regular nine could not possibly go. At the end of the seventh inning the score stood three to nothing, in favor of Greenfield, then our boys got to playing wild, and at the end of the ninth inning the score was Lees burg 14, and Greenfield 4. The return game will be played soon and our boys say they will turn out in full force next time. Mr. J. L. Metcalfe has sufficiently recovered from his sickness to resume work on the S. S. R.

Some old hacks and buck-boards, filled with Democrats, went from here to Mar tinsburg last Friday night, where General Durbin Ward spoke.

Pugsley will speak in City Hall; on Wednesday, the 6!h, Prof. J. T. Greener and Hon. Milton Holland, of Washington City, will address the citizens. The former is well known as having been the counsel for Cadet Whit taker, in the late racket at West Point. There will also be a meeting on Saturday night, when other noted speakers will be present. Come all, and aid by your presence and influence, and at the polls with your votes, the cause of liberty and right. A large Republican delesation repre sented Greenfield at Bainbridge, when Major Blackbuvn spoke on Wednesday night of last week. They had a rousing meeting, and great interest was manifested by all. These meetings will tell on the coming elections. The Garfield Club went to Washington Friday evening, to attend a Eepublican mass meeting. On last Thursday morning, the residence of the widow Speigle, on the Leesburg and Greenfield pike, was entirely consumed by fire, with its many valuable contents. -'The origin of tba fire is not known, all the family bein on another part of the farm, and when the fire was djscoverfd it had gained such headway that It was impossi ble to extinguish it. The total loss will probably reach $5,000, with no insurance. H. C. D. SICILY. Quite dry. Grass and wheat needing rain. . .. . Some are not through sowing wheat yet.

"One by one, we cross the river." We are glad to hear that another honest, reasoning Democrat, of our vicinity, has decided to vote for Republicanism, and honest principles. I wish every Northern Democrat would hon&lfa, to hii ova conscience and before his God, answer1 these questions: Do I want to see the men who tried to overthrow our Government, and destroy us as a Nation, placed in power t If we were to have another war, would I be willing to fight with and for the Southern Rebels? If not, ought I to vote with them? In which party is the principal whisky element? Which party kept us from having Local Option in(3hio? Do you want to fellowship with the whisky ring? Take 25, or any number, larger or smaller, of your near neighbors, and see to which party the best educated, the best read, the most intelligent, the most honest, the truest Christians, belong. Please give a "fair count," and settle it honestly with yourself. Then decide to which partv you ought to belong. May God ble.is the right ! SICILY. LYNCHBURG.

So lo jg advertised, was held in this city, to-day, (Tuesday) but notwithstanding the beautiful weather, there were not more than 4000 people in town, or about half as many as attended tbe Sherman meeting in a drenching rain. Bands were present from South Sulem, Pricetown and Dodson ville, and the procession was very ingeni ously strung out so as to look as large as possible. The meeting was held in the Court House yard, and the stand was beau tifully decorated. Hon . N. Barrere pre sided. Hon. J. G. Carlisle, of Ky., was the first speaker, and spoke about an hour. He was followed by Gen. Steedman, of Toledo, an egotistical old gentleman and a poor talker, who told about hia'young wife and baby, and insulted the memory of Lin coln by declaring that if he were alive to day he would vote for Hancock and Eng lish! His speech fell flat on the audience, and the Democratio leaders were ashamed of it. There waa a lack of enthusiasm throughout, and the Democracy are com pelled to acknowledge their meeting a fiz zle for lack of competent speakers. "The uinc or even "Uullv ijibson could have aroused greater enthusiasm, and it was ra ther cruel not to give them an opportunity to perform before so large an audience. About 1 ")00 people listened to the speeches, many of whom were Republicans. IN MEMORIAM. DEDICATED TO MRS FLORENCE OVERMAN. Dear Florence, thoo art gone; thy pare.sweet spir it fled To that bright world above, thy body with the duad ; Though thou hast from o ?ooe, yet we can go to thee;- . Wheu this frail life is o'er, and death shall ae t n free. Thy borne is lonely now; per chance, thoo still art sear. Unseen by mortal eyes, to guard thy kindred dear; And from the skies dost beckon to the dear one left bel ow. Dost come to cheer and "aide them, throajh this dark vale of woe. E'en now, methinks, I hear thee, "My friends, weep not for me, Bat think of me In Ileaven, there I shall happy be, With my darling slsterClara, and my dear angel babe;" Sweet Joans now Is with me, of death I'm not afraid. "I know thatyoa will lonely be, when I have gone away, . I know that yoa will misjmj, bjt with patience wait the day When we all shall moot again, then our sorrow win he o'er; Oh, Wow happy we shall be, on that bright, eter nal shore. " r " "The grave has lost its terrors, and death has lost its sting; And now, my son! in ecstacy and joyful strains - can sing. Come, welcome. Death, thou end of fears, I aa .- prepared to die; Come, angels, come and bear me, to God, above the sky." Dear Parents, yonr children In Heaven, now lone ly yon are le ft; Oh, monrnnot, for the lov'd ones, although so sore bereft; un tne Danits 01 life's bright river, they are wait- ing bow for yoa, ' All radiant and glorioes, thongh hiddea from . ' your view. - Yes, dear ones, we will meet yon, when the tolls of life are o'er. And join the blissf al chorus, od the bright, celes tial shore. "To Hub who lov'd and bonght ns, with Hi3 own precious blood," All glory, praise and pwer, to Christ, the Son of Oud! With shining hosts adoring, and bright seraphs near the throne. In the sweet fields (lysisa, and praising Qod's dear Son, With joyous acclamation and sweetest symphony; All honor and salvation, to God, the One In Three. E. H is a The election of Hancock means idleness for the workingman Vote for Barch Miller for Auditor, and yoa will nevor regret it. He will make one of the best officers the county ever had, and one of the most" popular. - Should not Mr. DeBruin be sat isfied with the ''long pull and strong pull" he has had at the county treas ury ? Are not thirteen consecutive years of office enough for any rea sonable man f The Democrats are teaching sec tionalism in all the common schools in the South through the aid of rebel histories of the war, and their presses at the North continue to cry aloud "there are many Republicans, and they are among the best men in the party, who are heartily sick of sec tionalism." What hypocrisy ! Let these hypocrites burn their own sec tional school books before they charge upon the Republicans "an unalterable determination to keep alive and in full vigor all the passions of the war."
