The undersigned having had oar attention called to the act of May 13. 1869, regulating the mode of holding elections, found on page 58 of the acts of 1869, and having taken legal advice in regard to its construction, and appending herewith an opinion of the At torney General, are of the opinion that the seventh section of said act relates to city and town elections for municipal purposes only ; and that the general elections for Stale, county and township offices are regulated by the 3d, 4th, 5th and Cth seel ions of the act. And, there fore, the election to take place on the 11th inst. should be conducted in csn- forniity to the regulations made under said last named sections by the Town ship Trustees and Boards of County Commissioners, without any reference to section seven.

I have the honor to acknowledge the receipt of yoor note of this instant cal ling my attention to an opinion address ed to C P. Ferguson, Esq., Charlestown, Indiana, in relation to the construction of the seventh section of an act of May 13 18C9, regulating elections and the appointment of officers therefor. The opinion having been hastily prepared is liable to a misconstruction, and - may have a tendency to mislead the puVlic. , I am satisfied that the seventh section of the act alluded to ought to be con strued to cover elections held by cities ind towns for municipal purposes only, and that it does not apply to State, coun ty and township elections held Tor gen- . eral purposes; Yoa will, therefore, favor some by pubtibiiii IV- ?r-'-ntorr note.

The speech of Vice President Colfax, to the crowded Lyceum Hall, on Tues day afternoon last, was replete with un-, answeraHe argument and convincing facts, and we did hope that our neighbor . of the Democratic Herald could have re- ! mained and beard him through .for we ' thought that even he might have been " convinced of the error of his ways! We have only room for one of the points he made, in regard to the Hendricks-Gooding-Democratic plan, these worthies ad- . vocate br paying off the Democratic Na tional Debt issue a batch of Greenbacks with which to redeem the Bonds! In discussing the subject of the national debt, he said: The Democracy say that when they get into power they are going j to pay off the national debt. They j never loved the national debt ort the cause in which it was contract ed; but now they say, Only give us the control of the government, and we will "maintain ihe public credit we wi'I pay off the public debt. How are they going to do it? They say they are going to ifijue "reenbaoks for that purpose and pay off the debt in those green backs. Now how does the green backs read? "The Uuited States promises to pay to the bearer dollars. (Signed,) F. E. Spinner." This is a promise to pay at our convenience without any specified time, and without in terest. That is a greenback. Now how doc a bond read? just the same precisely as the greenback, except tha.t there is a time fixed for payment and interest to be paid on it. Now the Democratic panacea for all the ills to which our country is heir is to pay off one end of the debt of the United States rith. the other end. If to p ty off these bonds of the United States, payable at a given date, and bearing interest, you are to issue more of these greenbacks, promising to pay whenever you please, end without interest, what kind of honesty is that? Suppose that at the conclusion of my term of office, when I shall retire to private life, I should come to your city to go into business manfac turing for instant ean1 I ' go to 1 one of jour wealthy Democratic citizens and want to borrow money to carry on my business upon. The rate of "interest is agrved upon and I give my note, reading 'somewhat after tliis fashion: "I promise to pay to John Doo, or order, one year after datt Un thousand dollars, with intcreM. Some time after I have got the money my Democratic fitcml comes up here and makes a speech, presenting Ins' views an the finan cial policy of the Government and unfolds his plan of the payment of the National debt. I am present end hear what be bos to say upon that subject. ( The next day, or a few days after, I call on him and say "I have come to pay my note. "Very well. He' opens his safe and bands me the note, and I, in return for it, haul out ofmy pocket and give him "a piece of paper on which I have written, '-I promise to pay to John Doe or order ten days after convenient, ten thous and dollars (Signed,) Schuyler Colfax." What does my Demo cratic friend think of that? He sa3's to roe, 'You swindler! yon knave! I aj to him, 'that is pre cisely what you advocated in your speech in regard to the payment of the national debt; if it is honest in the nation to pay off its debts that waj it is honest in me. That is certainly true no man can ; reasonably say no to that and if the man calls me a swindler for proposing to get rid of my obliga tions in that way, what shall I say of his argument in regard to the national debt? Expenditures UuderGrant and Buch anan Compared. ! The Democracy have much to say about the enormous expenditures of the Republican Administration of Genera' Grant, as compared with Democratic ad ministrations. To make out a case, they include all the expenses created by the Democratic Rebellion, and which should be charged to that instead of the Republican party. Official figures show the truth on this subject. To get at the expenses of Gen Grant's Administration, all the items occasioned by the Democratic rebellion should be deducted; the balance being fairly chargeable to the Republican par ty as the cost of the. Government, had not the Democracy rebelled. The following figures show the exact state of the case: 1870 compared -4(inu I860. Total expenditures I for the year end ing June 30,1870, $292,124,052 18 From this expen diture there should be deducted the fol lowing items in curred in conse quence of the Dem ocratic rebellion: Interest on the pub lic debt $127,702,838 04 Expenses of Nation al loan 2J92.465 35 Bounties to soldiers 4,793,700 00 Horses and other , property lost in the military ser vice 200,984 50 Reimbursing States for expenses in curred in raising troops 1,294,303 82 Bureau of Refugees and Fried men 1,325,190 25 Arrears of pay to volunteers 1,893,402 4 Expenses under re construction acts, 80.76 84 National cemetries, 27,384 72 Captured and aban- ed property 40,823 62 Expenses collecting internal revenue taxes.... 8,104,733 40 Pensions 23,340,202 19 Jiay, increased ex penses 8,089,000 00 Army, increased ex penses 26,058,827 60 - . - - 21141,118 73 Total expenditures for the fis cal year 1869 70, less items properly chargeable to the rebellion 80,852,935 45 Reduced to a gold basi, for "mparison with the ex peudmires for the fiscal year ie5 60, under a Democrat ic administration, the aver se premium of gold for the yeai a 18 70 being 22 2-10 per cent., gives as the expen ditures, less war items, gold basis 5,651,733 32 Estimating the population of the Uni ted States at 40.000,00(1. tbe expense for the year of President Grant's Adminis tration ending June 30, 1870, is, per ca pita, SI 64 1 8. For the year ending June 30, I860 the expenses of the Gov ernment, including interest on the public debt, as in the statement respecting the Administration of President Grant, were $63,025 789 34, gold, the population be ing about $31,400,000; per capita, $2.0. 7 showing a proportionate expenditure of 18 per cent, less in 1870 than in 1860 upon tbe same basis, notwithstanding the increased area of the country, the inter est on Pacific Railroad bonds, and the organization of new territories. But the Resident Committee has also instituted a per capita comparison, and gives the per capita expenditures for tbe twenty-four years, as follows: Presidents. Tears. Exclusive of In- teret and Debt. Jackson 8 ,..1 16 Van liuren 4 ...1 78 Polk.. 4 1 75 Pierce 4 ...1 96 Buchanan 4 2 19 Average yearly for the 24 jears, $1 77 As shown above, the net ordinary ex penditure, per capita, by Grant, on a peace standard and gold basis being the standard and basis applied to Buchanan is $161 per capita; which is less than the alleged annual average f r the twen ty-four years in the sum of 13 c.nts per capita: 14 cents less per capita than the average under Van Buren. II cents less per capita than the average under Polk. 32 cents less per capita than the average under Pierce. 55 cents less per capita than the average under Buchanan. It should be remembered that the much wider area of the country now than under Jackson, Van Buren or Buchan an, would naturally make the expendi tures proportionately greater: and yet they are positively less under Geii.Gract. Let the People take notice. No Government and no admin istration ever existed which can 'show such a brilliant financial rec ord as tbe Government under the management of the Republican party. All that is necessary to be done to continue this record is to keep tbe Republican party in power. The Coutrnat ef Parties. The Republican parly enme in to power in the State in January, 18(11. It fouud that Democratic llnnncierii) bad created a debt oi over irii millions;' it found that vahabU fittnehbes of the State, nu)0iiuiii) lu the aggregate to noNtly two million of dollars hud been pqusndeted and frittered away uj on parfy favorites; it found the credit of the State shat tered and almost destroyed. Her bonds were almost worthless. They were shunned by capitalists, Indianiansi were ashamed of the contempt into which the credit of the State bad been brought. There was not a citizen of the State, so licitous for her honor and good name, who did not feel most keen ly the criticisms upon the financial standing of the Slate. With the retirement ot the cor rupt Democratic administration, came an investigation of the caus ses of this bad financial condition of the State. The astounding dis covery was made that vast forger ies of State securities had been going on, and that a Democratic State agent had issued fraudulent stocks to the extent of $2,300,000; bnds which had been redeemed and were again put upon the market and resold. Fortunately for the people fortunately for the State's credit, the Republican administra tion caused the fraudulent eviden ces of the indebtedness of the State to be destroyed. The most strenuous efforts were made to re cover the large amount of which the Treasury had been robbed, but he effort was fruitless. The rire which had stolen it was bankrupt, pecuniarily and morally, individu ally and collectively and nothing was saved. By economy and honesty, the Republican party not only paid the debt which a corrupt Democratic administration had left, but it so enhanced the credit of the State that holders of her bonds refused to relinquish them for the cash, and only when by order of the Auditor of State, the interest upon them ceased, did they surrender them. The contrast carries with it a complete and indisputable re futation of the charge of co: rup tion and fraud in the Republican party. Only by the strictest in tegrity and economj- could such a result have been attained. To The Republicans of Wayne County. I am aware that many of you deem the election of next Tues day as a matter of no very great importance, but I beg of you to discard that idea. In this county our ttcket will, as a matter of course, be elected; but the other parts of the State and other coun ties where there are Democratic majorities and where the Republi cans are doing their whole duty, have a claim on you, and a just one too. They have a right to de mand that you shall do your duty and your whole duty; if you do, all is right. Our State Ticket is of far greater importance to us even than our county ticket, and our Congressional canvass and success of the nominee, is ati important. I eartestly entreat every man who claims to be Republican to come out to the polls and vote; and not only so, but to vote a clean un scratched ticket. Let no man feel that he has even done his duty then, but let him see that every other voter in his vicinity has vo ted, and if he i3 not able to go to the polls see that he has an oper tunity tody so. Let every one feel that on that day, at least, he is his "brother's keeper," and is account able. I say to my associates who have with me so long fought the bnt'lesof the Radical wing or the party, if you falter now in the sup port of tue whole ticket, rerr.ember tbe old adage, "curses like chick eYi3t always come home to roost " let us not seek, by hanging back, to emulate the bad example of those we used to condemn; two wrongs never make a right. I think I can safely By upon the part of those who are styled Mr. Julian's friends, by way of dis tinction, that they will do their whole duty on the day of Election. If they do not, I warn them that the consequence will be inju rious to them and him. Every man who fails to vote the whole ticket is, morally, a dishonest man, and shonld be so regarded. A full vote is all that is needed to insure success upon our part. Let us aave that. Let not the banner count' of the State falter now when we ar eo near tue final settlement of all the great plans of ourpartjv Rest assured that every Democrat will be at the polls and vote. Their Slate Centeral Committee have given special instructions, by a secret circular, to have every man at the polls and be sure to supply all doubtful and wavering with a ticket before the election, let us learn, wisdom by them and do likewise. The tickets will all be uniform and I eaded Republican Ticket, look well to them and be cureful of bogus tickets; let every man read his ticket. I especially urge the Township Committees to do their whole luty, see that noth ing is undone ; see that every vo ter is on hand ; the sick, the lame, the aged-and infirm. It is our boast, and a proud one, too, that nearly all tbe old men ol tbe coun ty are Republicans. Let our watc -word be God and ojr country, and all will be well. H. B. Patnb, Cu'r. Wayne Co. Cen. Com Democracy During the War. Now, my friends, we have had war, have had administration, des olation, emancipation nd damna tion. Fernando Wood in Chicago, August 26, 1864. What is this war for? The nig ger; the nigger against the white man. I think we don't want our bosoms stuffed with damned nig gers this warm weather. J. N. Sanderson of Pennsvlvania. The great mistake was, that '.he Democracy did not resist the war from tbe beginning. She should retrace her stepts and finally tri umph. He would not have a can didate with the smell of war on his garments. Hon. J. J. Van Allen, member of the New York Legislature. In the Democratic Convention of Stark county, Ohio, in 1864, a Mr. Stambaugh said: 'If he was called upon to elect between the freedom of the nig ger and disunion and separation, he should . choose the latter I Cheers j One reason why the Democrats shculd tupnort the candidate of the Convention was, that they might search hell over ana tuey couia not nna a worse President than Abraham Lincoln When this war was over he would not give a pinch ot snuff for the 5-20's and 10-40 s' Henry Clay Dean in tbe Chi cago Convention said; 'For over three 3-ears Mr. Lin coln had been calling for men and they were given. But with all the vast armies placed at his com mand, he failed, failed, failed He blushed that such a felon should occupy the highest place in the f lit of the people. Perjury and larceny were written over him f . 1 a . . as ci ten as one tionar on tne one dollar bills of the Stale of Indi ana. Judge Alexander, of Kentucky, said, 'Mr. Lincoln was so fond of the nigger, he should have one of the slain ones skinned and made into a pair of moccasins for his daily wear. Judge Swann, State Prison Di rector of this State, said: 'The Democracy will not assist the war any further, and will re fuse appropriations, will refuse to furnish another man and resist the draft; then the war will not last pixty d.iys. for the Democracy will reluse all aid and comfort so" thai the administration would be com pelled to acknowledged the inde pendence of the South, and then a Northwestern Confederacy will be formed and Indiana will then join the South. This is not only my policy but the Democratic plat lorm. John II. George, of New Ham pshire, a Democratic candidate for Congress, in 1863, said: 'I won't do any thing to sus tain the President, Congress, or anjr of the piratical crew that have control of the Government. I won't do any thing that can in any way be interpreted as supporting the war.' " Iri the Connecticut Democratic Convention, in 1862, H. II. Bar ber said: 'We sound no uncertain trum pet this time. We are against the war. The Elections in other States have notbeen understood bv the President There have betn too many War Democrats chosen. When Thomas II. Seymoro is elec ted President he nill understand what that means.' Voorhees professed that one bun dred thousand Democrats were ready to resist the coercion of the Southern traitors. His rebel un cle thus wrote him. Harrisonburg, Va., Feb. 17, 1862. Dear Nephew: We want you to hold that 100. 0C0 men in readi ness as wedo not know how soon we may want them. J. Hardksty. 'Hon. Daniel W. Voorhees, Ter re Haute, Indiana.' Nine hundred and ninety-nine out of every thousand whom I represent brt athe no other prayer than that this - hellish war may cease. When news of our vicro toiies come there is no rejoicing; when ne s of our defeat comes there is no sorrow.' D. II.Ctltr ick in Democratic Convention at Indianapolis in 1064. This is a damned picket shoot ing war ' M. A. O. Packard. Dem ocratic candidate for reporter of the Supreme Court in 1868. This is a fine way Democratic leaders have of showing their pat riotism and love for the Union. The only way to prevent them from doing mischief is to keep the party out of power. Every vote against the Republican candidates is a vote for putting public af fairs into the bands of such men. SUOur'acknowledfrments 'or local aid are due to H. Ham, Esq., this week.

The Election. Oj'Tuesday next the State el ec tion will be held. It is one of the most important to the people of any since the rebellion. There is a Democratic ring formed for the express purpose of compelling the people of Indiana to pay the canal bonds amounting to about eigh teen millions of dollar?. It has be?n openly asserted by leading Democrats that these bonds would be a splendid investment. This nie-rns that it a majority in the Legislature is Democratic the canal swindle will be foisted upon the people, their taxes doubled, the State involved in an enormous d-ibt, which will burden them for years. This calamity can only be averted by voting the Republican ticket. No denial has ever been made of the charge that a scheme has been projected by the Democracy to this end; no contradiction has ever been made of the oft-repeated as sertion that by the advice of Au gust Belmont, a holder of a large e mount of the canal bonds, a stud ied reserve was maintained in the Convention of the 8th of January upon this subject. Every Republican of Wayne county owes it to his own interest, to that of his neighbor, and to the prosperity of the State to work earnestly and zealously for the success of the Republican ticket. To fail in bis duty to work and vote is to invito increased taxation and plunge the State into debt a debt, too, which would be' unjust and which has long since ben sat isfied. Upon the next Legislature will devolve the duty of electing a Uni ted States Senator. Dan Voor hees is a candidate for that exal ted position. The stigma whih his election would bring upon the State, should appall every loyal citizen. He is the man who trade frequent journeys to Canada to j consult rebels as to the best meth od of involving Indiana in the treasonable conspiracy to dettroy the Utiiorj; he is the man who boasted that his vote would never be caat to furnish men, monev or supplies to crush the rebellion. A letter recently published, written by Chief Justice Chase, contains an expression which we could wish to imprint in indellible characters on the mind and heart of every true American. It is this: "That those lately in rebellion have no more right to destroy the country by ballot3 than by bul lets." . The Democratic party ha9 not accepted the iss;tcs of the past as finally Fettled in favor of peace, unity, and freedom. It holds, with fiendish tenacity, to the same evil doctrines which once lighted the fit.es of civil discord all over the land. It contends for the right of States to nullify or at least to de feat national regulations, calcula ted to defend the liberties of the imperilled citizen, and to secuie to citizens of Ohio or Massachusetts while sojourning in Georgia, Tex as or Alabama, all the rights en. joyed by the citizens of those Slates. The power of the Federal Government to carry out its own laws in all the States is denied. Our dnty is to stand by the ad ministration which so nobly 6iis tained our national credit, and so largely reduced the pub!io debt. To allow a Democratic House, to be elected would be to embarrass G?neral Grant's administration, and defeat many of its most bene ficial measures of economy ?nd re form. We must, at the fall elec tions, shower another avalanche of emphatic and overwhelming Re publican majorities on the hopes of the party which still shelters the doctiines and the persons of secessionists and traitors. : Let not the proud banner of the Rr publican party be trailed in the dust: By the memory ol its glo rious deeds by the memory of the heroism and sacrifices of thous ands of brave men, let us do our dut3, and "take care that no harm comes to the country." Let the people of Indiana re member that the Republican party resolved, in convention, at Indian apolis that the cqntitution of the State ought to be amended at the earliest practicable period so as to prohibit the taking effect of any law proposing to pay what are called the canal bonds, issued un der what is known as the Butler bid. Thus placing themselves up on the record in a decided and practical manner n that question. It s not a pleasant fact for Dem ocrats to consider, that while the receipts, in eighteen months under Grant's administration have in creased 837,213,765.60 over those of a corresponding period of John son's misrule, the expenditures have decreased 853,853,060.77, thus saving to the country 9170, 006,826.37. - - - The Democratic members ofl . . . Congress voted solidly against and reduction of taxation. sTake a review of the glorious record of the Republican party and of the infamous record of the Democratic party, and then decide which is tbe safest, purest and best. , When General Grant became President the . greenback dollar was worth seenty five cents, but it is now worth eighty-eight and a half cent3, making the entire vol ume of our currency worth nearly 8100,OC0,000 more in the pockets of the people. Look Out for Fraud Democrat Hill Attempt to '-Doctor" Ite'nrns Let Republicans oe on ibeir Guard. The Democrats have no hope of carrying the election by any fair means. As usual, they propose to resort to fraud, when they can not fairly secure success. We urge Republican to lor k out for all sorts of trickery," and pay no at tention to reports originating with Democrats. The corrupt ring at Indianap olis, which is attempting to sad dle the people of Indiana with the canal debt, are busy at their ne farious schemes. They must be closely watched. The Indianapo lis Journal says: 'On yesterday afternoon a prom inent and influential Democrat of this State, held a conversation with a Democratic friend of this city, in an alley in the rear cf the latter's store, which happened to be overheard by a gentleman who gives it to us. Tbe most promi nent remark was that of the prom inent gentleman, who said: 1 will go down to Boone county and see , and there shall, be no returns come here until you tele- cranli for them. Tell how many votes vou want and they 6hall be sent." Eleciiou Law.- The Indiana election law pro vides that hereafter every voter's ballot shall be numbered. The following section of the law wil govern Inspectors of elections in receiving ballots at the October election: ''It shall be the duty of the In spector of any election held in this State, on receiving the ballot of onv voter, to have the same num bered with figures on the outside or back thereof, to correspond with the number placed opposite the name of such voter on the pol lists kept by the clerks of said election.' It only requires thorough 'work in getting a full Republican vote to the polls, to overwhelm the De mocracy in defeat. The elections which have already been held, fIiow that the Republican party has made large gains. Reports lrom all parts of this State, are cheering, and indicate a strong and vigorous organization. The outlook is indeed all that the most enthusiastic Republican could de sire. Let us do our duty, and not fall behind our brethren in other parts of the State. The Democratic party which claims to have controlled the gov ernment for eighty years, prepar ed it in thut time for successful re bellion, and for four years of civi' war. the fruits of which are the death ol over 250,000 young men and a national debt of 82,500,000, 000- Who desires to repeat Dem ocratic rule, if such are its fruits? Among the many damning items in the people's indictment against the Democracy, not the least is the fact that our Democratic State offi cers redeemed bonds end then, in violation ot law, put them upon the maiket again, at a large dis count. faa- The adjourned August Term of the Wayne Civil Circuit Court, takes place on Monday, Nov. 14.
