To the Democrncy of Ohio:
A State Convention of the De
mocracy of Ohio will be held at
Columbus, on Tuesday, the-8tli day
of January next, to nominate can
didates for the following office?, and
for the 'transaction of such other
business as may come before it: .
i: Lieutenant Governor;
, A uditor of $tatc
Treasurer (jf State;
Supreme Judge-;
Attorney General;
Member Board of Public Yorls.
The ratio. of representation, will
be as follows : One delegate for
each county; an additional delegate
for every 500 votes cast for Thomas
M. Key Vor Supreme Judge at the
last election; and an additional del
egate for every fraction of 250 or
more votes so cast.
This ratio gives to Vinton coun
ty four delegates.
It is respectfully suggested that,
as far as it may be practicable and
convenient, the delegates bo chos
en on Saturday, the 29th day of De
cember. We avail ourselves of this occa
sion to urge upon the Democracy
an immediate organization, and es
pecially township and ward organ
ization. Now is the time to spread
useful information among the peo
ple; but this cannot be done with
out a thorough and efficient organ
ization. That'our principle's will
ultimately triumph we do not
doubt for to do that would be to
doubt the possibility of free gov
ernment but we cannot achieve
success, and avert despotism, with
out labor, and we cannot begin our
labors too soon, or prosecute them
too earnestly and steadfastly.
By order of the Democratic State
Central Committee.
C. J. BEAM, Sec'y.
We are unable, from want of
both space and time, to lay before
our readers, this week, the Presi
dent's Message. It is a document
that will command universal and
earnest attention throughout the
couritry. Dignified and moderate
ia tone, xlear and unanswerable in
its logic, and patriotic in its firm
adherence to the Constitution, it
answers every wish of those to
whom country is dearer than party
ties. There are signs of great care
and study in its preparation; this,
more especially, m the first part of
the message, where he claims lor
the Southern States their Constitu
tional right of representation. Ev
ery "sentence has its condensed
meaning. On the ground of pub
lic policy as well as Constitutional
rights he urges their admission to
the halls of Congress. Tnat they
are not Provinces, nor Territories,
and subject to treatment as such,
he shows by the consistent acts of
the Executive, Legislative, and Ju
dicial Departments of the" Govern
ment, during and since the war,
recognizing them. as States, with
powers only suspended by the oper
ations of the war. His message is
a clear exposition and an able de
fense of the policy ot immediate
restoration, which he has consist
ently maintained. With no allus
ions to past differences, he urges, as
is his duty, that the Southern States
be restored to their every Constitu
tional right
The message briefly alludes to
the reports of the several Depart
ments, and then proceeds to our
foreign relations, which are evi
dently not very satisfactory. France
"has failed to withdraw any portion
pf her troops from Mexico, accord
ing to agreement, and England has,
as yet, failed to answer for the lit
tle grievances she made us suffer
during the war, A hope is ex
pressed that speedy and satisfacto
ry arrangements will be made with
both countries.
The financial condition of the
country is reported as being, all
things considered, very satisfacto
ry. The inessago expresses the
opinion, from the estimates, that
the taxes may be reduced, and yet
the National debt be extinguished,
within, the. next twenty-five years.
There are a few minor points
touched upon, and the message
closes with the desire that an effort
be made to "preserve harmony be
tween the co-ordinate Departments
ot the Government, that each in its
proper sphere may cordially co-operate
with the other in securing
the maintenance of the Constitu
tion, the preservation of the Union,
and the prosperity of our free in
stitutions." FRANCE AND MEXICO.
We have it, in the President's
message, that a friendly arrange
ment was made, in April last, be
tween the Emperor of France and
the President of the United States,
for the withdrawal from Mexico of
the French expeditionary military
forces. The withdrawal was to be
effected in three detachments, the
first of which was to leave in No
vember last, the second in March,
and the last in November 18C7.
The time for the first withdrawal of
troops is past, and the arrangement
has not been lived up to on the
part of France, From the temper
of Andy Johnson, we think he will
be disposed to imitate Andrew
Jackson, in his mode of treating
Foreign Powers, whenever they
show any disposition to infringe
on the supposed rights of the Unit
ed fctates. Jackson's diplomacy con
sisted in emphatic demands, back
ed very often by intimation of force.
His " language of diplomacy " was
peculiarly his own. Johnson, if we
mistake not, is much of the same
spirit. Seward, courtly and sub
tle, will have much to do in smooth
ing over the , rough places which
Johnson's directness will be apt to
create. . : . .
Congress can alone declare war,
but the Executive can do much to
provoke it. The American people
were not a little incensed that
France should take advantage of
our domestic squabble, to ininnge
on what is popularly known as the
" Monroe Doctrine." Its asseition
now would meet with a strong sup
port. The agreement between
France and the United States
is in thai, direction. A complete
failure on the part of France to
meet her engagement will occasion
strong feelings against her in this
country. A forcible assertion of
the Monroe Doctrine would, in that
case, meet with a hearty support,
and it would mean nothing more
nor less than war. We are in no
condition for hostilities we have
had enough nor, considering the
situation of Europe, could France
well afford to engage in a war with
us. It would be to the interest of
no one, and would prove a serious
blow to both countries. For this
reason, we hope' that while our
Government is firm in the position
that Mexico should be left to her
self, it will be temperate and mod
erate in the terms of its demands,
and that France will give up, with
the best grace possible, its foolish
interference in the affairs of that
burlesque on Republican Government.
The late elections subject as
they are of congratulation among
the Radicals show that the Dem
ocratic party is, to-day, a majority
in the country. A minority rule
under the forms of the Constitution,
which it eveiy day violates. This
is done by the exclusion of a num
ber of States from all voice in the
Government. Every State repre
sented as is its right, and in posses
sion of its full Constitutional pow
er, and the Radical party ceases to
exist. They understand this and
play their .cards accordingly. It is
a desperate game they are playing.
The majority must and will rule in
this country. They may extend
their lease of power by imposing
conditions on the Southern States
which they know cannot be com
plied with, and by so amending the
Constitution as to exclude from all
participation in the affairs of Gov
ernment, a large class upon whom
they cannot rely for support in this
revolutionary scheme. .Power thus
gained cannot long, be wielded.
There will be a terrible recoil,' and
the men who now assume to rule
by virtud of their " loyalty," will
one day be humble petitioners for
The Democracy, undaunted by
successive defeats, will, in the end,
achieve victory, and the principles
of our Government be re-asserted.
The Southern Stales cannot always
be excluded from a voice in the
Government. They are entitled to
every right which is possessed by
their sister States in the North.
The Radical party, refusing this,
should be consistent, and, in the
language of one of our departed
statesmen: "Blot from the span
gled banner of the Union the bright
stars which glitter to their lftmes,
and leave the stripes behind, fit
emblems of their degradation."
The Democratic Convention, for
the nomination of State officers,will
meet in Columbus, on the 8th day
of January next. It is a time-honored
custom of the Democracy to
celebratethe anniversary of this day
mado memorable by the victory of
Jackson at New Orleans. vv hue
thus honoring the memory of a great
Democratc leader, they will choose
their standard bearers from among
the men assemblod to render their
tribute to his memory. Though
early, a more appropriate day
could not have been chosen.
General Steedman and Judge
Thurman are spoken of in connec
tion with the nomination for Gov
ernor. Judge Thurman is one of
the ablest and purest men in the
State, and no better namo could
be placed at the head of our ticket.
For Lieutenant-Governor, our ed
itorial brother, J. II. rutnam, of
the Chillicothe Advertiser, is' spok
en of. Aside from professional par
tiality, we know of no better nom
ination that could be" made. A
staunch Democrat, an accomplish
ed writer, and an experienced leg
islator, he will undoubtedly lend
strength to the ticket.
Washington. Nov. 19. The fol
lowing dispatches were received by
General Grant concerning the
crossing of the Rio Grande by Gen.
"I fear that Gen. Sedgwick has
crossed lrom Brownsville and occu
pied Matamoros, . under pretext of
protecting American Commerce
there. Should it prove true, I will
order his immediate removal, with
your approbation, and disclaim
any indorsement of the movement.
"Major-general commanding."
A response was immediately tel
egraphed to General Sheridan, in
structing him to depose Sedgwick
with the first verification of the lat
ter s reported movement, and to
disavow any indorsement of the
United States.
The Chief Justice and the Appointing
One of the most astonishing
propositions which has been made
by the Radicals in Congress is that
to vest in Chief Justice Chase the
appointment and control of the In
ternal Rev. Department through
out the country. If it is justifiable
and appropriate he should do that,
it is equally so that he should man
age the Custom-houses, and be at
the head ot the army and navy.
Adopting this principle, we make
him uniet Justice as well as I'res
ident, the officer whose business it
is to execute a law and decide its
legality at the same time. It nev
er before was discovered that there
was a peculiar compatibility in the
Chief Justice having a large ap
pointing ana executive power, but,
on the contrarj', the idea has been
topreserve the office pure by keep
ing it free from such corrupting
innuences. unlylancy Chief Jus
tices Marshall or Taney approach
ed with the offer of such enlanre
ment of their functions. Those
eminent jurists would have had
doubts of the sanity of the sug
gestion. But Chief Justice Chase
is of another mold. He is, while
on the Supreme Court, itching,
with a burning ambition, to be
President. He is not only entire
ly willing, but anxious, to dabble
the judicial robe in the dirty pool
of political agitation. Consequent
ly, his friend, Mr. Kelley, makes
the extraordinary proposition we
have alluded to above to give him
the control of offices that will as
sist him in the nomination at a
National Convention. This is the
explanation of this strange pro
ceeding to deprive the President of
patronage that properly belongs
to him, and to degrade, at the same
time, the office of Chief Justice.
