them Butternuts, Copperheads,

A WARNING IN TIME! A Republican Over-doses
and it Turns his Stomach!
and it Turns his Stomach! THE CAT OUT OF THE BAG!
A Big Swindle About to be Perpetrated
A Big Swindle About to be Perpetrated Upon the Voters of Vinton
Rorbacks and Lies Promised
on Eve of the Election!
Read the following Letter from
a Prominent Citizen!
We call the attention of the vo
ters of Vinton county to the letter
of a Republican, herewith' pub
lished. BEAD IT! It speaks for
itself. "Forewarned, forearmed!"
is an old adage, and if the voters
of Vinton allow themselves to be
duped by any of the lies which
these wire-working and unscrupu
lous politicians may print oi speak
just qn the eve of the election, the
people will have to blame : them
selves for their folly. This honest
old man has, in his letter, disclosed
their intentions and plans. Will
you listen to their lies? . Will, you
be deceived by, their stories, told
at a time whon they know the per?
sons they slander can have no op
portunity to deny their assertions,
and prove them to be as false as
the hearts that conceive themf-
Do not be deceived by the lying
clan; that they did not have the
evidence before, Ac. They: lie
when they say so, and you a!l know
it.".;Thc Democratic candidates' are
all men well known to every voter
in tho county, and every act of their
lives, publio and private, is to you
well known. How absurd, tnen,
for these sneake to get up "cock
and bull stories" and ask you to
believe them at this late day,' and
as to "Knight's of the Golden Cir
cle," there never was any such or
eranization in the State of Ohio.-
Have these wireiworkers forgotten
that, even in the days of military
commissions, they failed to estab
li6h the existence of any such or
ganization in this State f Did they
not try ? Did they not have Val
landigham up as a witness before
their military,, commission in . the
city of Cincinnati, in an effort to
convict, some men from -Noble
county, upon a j charge of being
"Knights"? But even this csnrL ot
which Henry Winter Davis said,
"It is ordered to try, and organised
to ' convict," were asnanaed ana
afraid to find a verdict of guilty,
because there was not one particle
or scrap, of evidence of the .exist
ence of any such organization.-
Yet, forsooth, these, pot-house pol
iticians have discovered the "mouse
in the meal tub." They know it
all. Bau! It is. sickening, . and,
too, it comes with a bad grace, from
men who belong to, and are organ
izing at this time, all: over the
Northern States, a : treasonable
cret society, known as UG. A.
the object of which is to hoodwink
the soidiers, and hold the govern
ment by means of the ballot-box,
if they can; but, if they fail in that,
to resort to revolution and arms,
hoping to have their army fully or
ganized lor tnat purpose, tsui
"The best lalu schemes of mice and men,
Gan? aft nglee."
We have no fears of the soldiers.
When once they know their duty,
they will do it, and in their patn
otism we have all confidence. But
read the letter:
[For the Vinton Record.
Mb. Editor: &V, I have never
taken an active part in county pol
itics, because I have always con
sidered that the candidates, on
either side, cared more for the pay
they would receive, if elected, than
they did for the "dear people"
whom thev'were to serve. I have
alwavs felt that it was a matter of
small moment which might be elec
ted, and. so, generally voted for my
personal friends, there being no
principle involved in the election
of county officers. .- But, sir, when
men seek to elevate themselves to
place and power by means of fraud
and lying, defaming the charaeten
of good citizens-1 say, sir, ' when
such means are deemed necessary,
I conclude there is something "ot
ten in Denmark." It is not neces
sary for me to tell you, or the peo
ple of this count-, that I am,' and
always have been, a Republican.
But I do feel it to be my duty now,
to say thatl cannot support' the
Republican county ticket this, fall;
and, in saying this much, I deem
a duty to go further and .give my
reasons. Both parties have placed
in nomination the names of good
and trne men, to fill the various of
fices; and were they left to run the
rate fairly, I should probably hare
voted as heretofore.' . But, sir, the
managers and -wire-work ers." confix
dent thatl could stomach anything
and would go the ticket regardlcts
fairness and hontsty. have let me
imp meir, secrets 100 i&& vna
here let toe say, I act guilt? 4f no
breach of confidence, and, Was as
sorry to hear of such plans, ai they
will be to see them made public.
This is the game they propose to
play: To have printed an Extra,
filled with all kinds of stories about
the Democratic candidates, among
which are to .be "a great a-po"
about "frwdt in th$ Sreasurer't of-
fine," implicating the Auditor . and
Probate Juaae - a great cry about
the escape of a prisoner from the
county jail) and a big story about
"Knight's of : tho Golden Circle"
Ac, fcc which they expect te sup
port oy amaavits or aeserters.
And, as my friend said, in speaking
of the plan, wagging his head in
his peculiar manner: "Wi CJOf put
BAY." : ' :'. ; ' ! . ' :'(' '
Their plan is to publish this latch
of lies just on the eve of the elec
tion. .Now, if any honest man can
support such a plan of electioneer
ing, he may do so--7 can not: I
have nothing against our. candi
dates, except this one thing: they
know of this fraud tha,t is aboutto
be perpetrated, and will do nothibg
to stop the outrage. Their silence
makes them guilty also. I Cannot
support them oh this account, .put
whether I shall vote for the Demo
crats,' I will take further time to
McARTHUR, Sept. 24, 1866.

; The above sentlmeot appears In the
cull for the assetablinr of the "loyal" peo
ple of Southern Ohio, which the Radicals
have, for the last two weeks, kept standing
in the dark corner of Record. White men
bball rule America I Is it a Joke, or is It
for the purpose of securiugtheatCondanctj
of Democrats? , Have the Radicals of this
place consulted with the speakers : who
have promised to bo in attendance, and
have they agreed that the people are igno
rant of their records, and can be made to
believe that they are in favor of white
men ruling America. True, none ot those
announced in their posters, have achieved
such distinction as to make their names and
deeds verv familiar to the oeoDle. Thev
are but Insignificant Mowers of the Rad-1
icals, who are plotting the ruin of the
Republic. The trumpet of fame baa not
sounded their names in our ears.. A stu
dent of National politics would misanoth-'
Ingby ignoring theirexistenee. Kentucky
is represented by one of whom she has no
reason to be pronOv This District Is rep
resented bjf one, from bis noted Incapacity,!
was a disgrace to the people -who sent btsn
to CongreM. : Hi servicer were not appre
ciated and he was made to reUfe. to pri rate
life. Others are announced, whose suffi
cient shield from all they can' dp, is their
utter Insignificance. . . ;
, Are they in, favor of white men, on a
basis of wblte representation, ruling Amer
ica? Their' records give answer to the
rjuestlon. Bow about white men ruling in
tbe District of Columbia? How about the
white basis there? But, baj-s Mr. Bundy,
the overwhllming vote against negro suff
rage was1 given by rebels, antl the Insignif
icant vote of one hundred and fifty in fa
vor of the black man ruling, was given by
"loyal" people. Is that all 'he explanation
of your record you can glve.Mr.Bundy. Mow
about tht nine Territories that will soon hi
Stptetl How about a white basis of rep
resentation there ? Bow about white men
ruling America I Why did you force ne
gro suffrage upon the people of Colarado
against their expressed with? Why did
you vote to force negro suffrage upon tbe
other Territories which will soon be States
In the Union I T7ere the people of the
Territories disloyal t Did they rebel again4
the Government ? Bundy, HcRee, and the
Radicals, whose lead they .. followed, have
not evert , that flimsy pretence to conceal
the meaning of thelrvotes.' Thelanguage
of their Sets h plain and unequivocal.
They bluster loudly about rebels in the
District of Columbia, but upon their votes,
forcing negro suffrage upon the people of
the Territories, - they are: silent as the
grave. - ; '
They dare not face their own muitc.
They shuffle, evade, equivocate, whenever
that part of their reqord is touched.
Fred Douglass and Anna Diokln-
son were tbe leading men la their late
Convention at Philadelphia. Are they the
white meu that are to rule America, or do
they form the white basis of representa
tion? . ,
It is not only their skirmishers, such as
Phillips, Tiltqn and Garrison, who openly
proclaim that they are In favor'6f making
this a mongrel Government. The leaders
of tbe party Sumner 'In the Senate and
Stevens in the House, have taken the same
ground. iVllson, Mftfe, Xundy, and the
likemen of small capacity' and no purpose
follow In thei? fodtstept. And yet they
Will speak here under a iafi for the assem
bling of men who believe that "White Men
upon a white basis of white representation
should Tule America." Will thev avoid
their records, or the call ? They mutt do
one or tbe other. We shall Bee.

'. Mr. Fcltou, would like very much just
now to get some Democrats to vote for

he would n'ot like to have some of the Irish
vote, the men that he said would Ue,.and
ought not to be allowed to vote. i Would
you not like to have borne of tbe , sons of
the Emerald Jslc" to cast their nee small

Remember, every Irishman, thai ; it is
known to be a fact, that Mr. . Felton said
that every one of you would fie, aud that
'you onght hot to be allowed to vote ' ,
. With Buch Infamy upon your brow, how
dare you approach a Democrat And then

But, here ia something again. Every
man upon tjie VVnioa ticket" is now, and
have been attempting to bribe Democrats,
and buy their" Votes. And again, every
oae of them, are attempting to trade votes
with Democrats.1 And then, again, every
