man's Republicanism it is a subject upon
which, doubtless, much might be said on both

tru t also, that a few short years ago the ine
briate Andy, after swinging around the cir
cle, appointed him one of bis Post Masters,
from which position he was ioeontineuilr
kicked by a Republican Adminintration at the

Independent, March 23.
KoiToa Palladicm
Br all honorablo editors, it is not consider
ed allowable to make known to the public
even by allusion, who their anonymous cor
respondent a are, when tbe names of the
writers hsve been confided to them.
With sueb editors however, as hsve very
little honor, and leas political consistency,
the esse appears, from the above extract, to
be different.
One would suppose from reading the In
dependent editor's challenge, to examine po
lUical records, that his Republicanism wa
ft subject upon which there was little to offer
on 'both sides,' on tbe principle that, 'Who
drives fat oxen should himself be fat.'
For in tbe given case, was there any ne
cessity for the dishonorable betrayal ot the
Independent's correspondent 1
Tbe conduct of tbe editor, to rsy the least,
does not supply evidence that small persons
are .exeunt from perpetrating orrMpnading
littleness snd meanness in their actioss aa
editors or that he is capable of demeaning
himself as a gentleman.
Tbe political standing of the individual
criticised, is well kuown in this community.

Republican party, but never acted, nor was

placed him in power, nor did he disgrace him

The writer has been iodusel to look np

numbers of the paper iu question sport the

may be a difierent Swift from our Indepen
dent Buzfuz.
Well this American makes sane curious
development, truly.
In fact, political biographies are some
times wonderlullv amusing !
For the present only a very few very pre
cious excerpts will be given from the editorials:

It also appears from the same paper that
R H Swift whoever that n ay be partici
pated actively in tbe 'Inebriate Andy's' In
dianapolis State Convention and that he was a
member of llu committee on resolutions.
What Swift this was perhaps onr Indepen

Tbe material is rich and abundant to abow
that there are hardly two sides to Swift's
political status.
Tbe writer does not fay that the 'Ameri

editor. -
. Hut tbe rich placer of the American spoons
out well and must be reseived for future usj
ii circumstances shoull render it necesssiy.
It is for the Independent to say.
There is also a painfully sensational ru
nor that there was a certain autobiogragbi
cal polities! sketch of the American Swift
carefully prepared and sent to tbe 'Inebriate
Andy's Secretary of the Treasury detail
ing minutely tbe peculiar executive ability of
the gentleman his official integrity and his
perfect soundness on the Inebriate Andy.'
Wonder if this biography U apochryphal or
is it canonical ? -
This puts us in painful suspense 1 Csn U
be possible that this is the veritable amateur
editor of tke Independent, who ia trying to
originate a factious oppposition to Judgs
Wilson t If so, bis political record may
e tsily be made both to 'point a moral and
adorn a talo.'
And tbe American Swift can rest assured
that if he is Identical with the Independent
man, and shsll continue to slop over so pro
miscuously and miscellaneously, the 'tale
aball be adorned and tbe moral as well point
ed' as an unskilled pen can do it.

Eft. Pal. The following letter was re

Dear Sib Oa my return from tbo cam

in. replr, have the honor to state, that there
is no member of Congress, who stands more
fair than Judge Wilson. He is on tbe Ju
diciary Committee, and Judge liiugham.

Committee, have told me that they considered
him one uf the ablest of it's members, and
a very bard worker. His speech on "Refund
ing the 5 per cent, to Indiana, Ohio and Il
linois, or the 2 per cent. Balance Due," was
considered the most able speech, in a legal
point ol view, made on that subject. Quite a
Urge number of members of rte Uousa said
to me : "It was a splendid legal argument.''
Judge Wilson is always at work, anl always

know, that the old Sth will find no abler ad
vocate ol Republican principles, than Judge
Wilson, and no new member who will more
readily command tbe respect and confidence
of tbe House. Yours, Ac,

in his modesty, has rather sought
to conceal.
Mr Lemon entered the service
when he was a mere boy, and after
three years of hard service par
ticipating in all of the important
battles of the South-west includ
ing Cbickamauga, Lookout Moun
tain and Missionary Bidge, he was
disabled for future service by a
rebel bullet, which struck his
right sholdier and passing oblique

the wound might prove fatal. For

and death . For a year he was a

mouths of intense suffering the
wound healed, leaviug him with a

for all manual labor, and any slight
strain of his crippled arm causes
him weeks of suffering. He is a
poor man and is dependent upon

conceals it. We, therefore, who
know of his misfortune, deem it a
duty that we owe to all fiiends of

For the Palladium.
Prosecuting Attorney.
Ed. Palladium J. L. Yaryan,
candidate for Prosecuting Attor
ney, gradmted at Miami Univer
sity in the tlass of 1860, and sub
6tqacntty at the Cincinnati Law
School. Ai soon as ho completed
his Collegiate Course, he com
menced reading law and continued
his studies until the war broke out;
he then threw aside his books and
enlisted in the army as a private,
and went South to teach Rebels
the first principles of law, the duty
of allegiance. He helped fight
the battles of Shilo, Stone River,
Chickamauga, Mission Ridge, Per
ryville and the Siege of Knoxville.
He was chief of Gen. T. J. Woods'
staff for three years, and was in
active service until the close of
the war. Oa account of the war
Mr. Yaryan delayed in getting in
to practice, but ho is a good law
yer, and in point of education and
ability has no rival in the field.
If elected he will discharge the
duties of his Office honestly, im
partially and faithful-y. The peo
ple of Old Wayne cannot overlook
the claims ef her soldier boys.
The Richmond Telegram is edited by
a man who can not speak of a member
of bis own party, with whom he differs,
without dealing in personal abuse.
Abuse with Mr. Surface seems to be the
height of argument, and all who see fit
to hold an advene opinion to his, receive
a full share of it. Just now the Tele
gram is violently opposed to Judge Wil
son, and every person or paper support
ing tha Judge is a fit subject for tbis fa
vorite pastime ot Mr. Surface. If he
desires to speak of the Palladium he re
fers to it as the "Postoffice sheet," or a
"dishrag." If he has occasion to say
anything of the Times, bis sweetest name
fur us is ' Jerry Wilson's hand organ."
And when Mr. Surface wants to annihi
late some Wilson man, he mildly refers
to him as one of "Jerry's henchmen."
All this may be very fine fun for Mr.
Surface, and he may imagine that he is
doing Mr. Claypool a srreat deal of
good. lie may also imagine that ihe
present abuse he is heaping upon J udge
Wilson the misrepresentations he uses,
and the unfounded claim that the Ju Ige
can't bo elected, all add to Mr. Clay-
pool's chances ol being nominated. It
looks as if Mr. Surface had allowed his
passion to overrule his, judgment. He
is placing himself in such a position
that it will bo hard Tor him to support
Wilson with honor, and ho seems de
termined to make Wilsoa's friends so

Special Correspondenoe of the Gazette. ,
I notice in your paper of yester
day a communication from O.K.,
of this city, which with your per
mission I would like lo make some
comments upon, as it is calculated
to produce wrong impressions iu
some localities. We presume the
writer is some transient visitr
or at least he appears to ba better
acquainted willi the 'hotel and
pigeon business' than he is with
the politics of county end dis
trict As regards the hotel and pegeon
business, we will not take isnuc
with him on that subject, for we
presume iu these matters he is
better posted than we arc. Your
correspondent very facetiously
goes on to say that Claypool and
Wiison, of this place are both
very able men and both candidates
for Congress in Ibis district. He
then says Claypool is the strongest
man in the city and county, and
will finally get the nomination.
His reasons are: "First, he is
able and convincing on the stump
with much experience, and in the
heat of a campaign is calculated
to bring into the fold the unde
cided floating vote." Now as to
the "convincing" part, we have
nothing to say; but as to the ex
perience on the stump, we don't
know where that experience be
gins, for we never knea of his
making a dozen political speeches
in hi life until his present cam
paign. Second, he says there is
no settled opposition to Claypool.
as a candidate, no factions formed
against him, no old scores to pay
off and finally, if nominated, will
carry everything, while Wilson
will if nominated, have great op -position.
As regards what the writer says
about 'factions' we think he will
find there is 'one' at least forming
that will, by the 1st day of April,
bo a hard customer lor Claypool
to get over. The two last charges
your correspondent makes on Wil
son ore simply ridiculous. His
first charge is, that two years Bgo
Julian was defeated by Wilson for
nomination, consequently Julian's
friends will not support Wiison if
nominated. This charge is pre
posterous and damaging to the
party, and a slur on the friends of
Julian in this district. Julian's
friends are composed of some of
the best and truest men in' our
party, and none know better than
they the popularity of Judge Wil
son, and they, are proud that their
champion was defeated, if defeated
at all, by a man of each marked
ability, and to-day there are many
of them working hard to secure
his nomination, while some are
doing what tliey can for Claypool,
following the Golden Rule, 'do
unto others Ac' This I am glad to
see, for it looks like the old trou
bles in this district would soon be
obliterated. I have not u sbadow
of doubt but that Claypool or Wil
son can either of them be elected!
if nominated. That Wilson will
carry his county and get the no-ai
ination there is hardly a doubt,
and there is no one who know
this better than Claypool and bis
friends We concede to Claypool
a very fair vote under the circum
stances, and shall not attribute it
lo his unpopularity in not receiv
ing the nomination. Wilson' &
course in Congress has been en
tirely satisfactory to the people,
and they intend and feel it their i
duty to honor him with another f
term in Congress

It is a fact too notorious to need proof that
Mr. Clarpool has all his life been an ultra-

Wilson's oppouenU has been that he did not

view the situation in ine liiumioaxion wim

We have received a copy of
Senator Pratt's ablo speech on
the Beaver L ke Land Bill A(cr
showing how the Democrats swin
dled the school children of Indiana
out of 81.000,000 worth of awamp
lands during Governor Willard's
administration, he gives the his
tory of the State's claim to a por
tion of tbe reclaimed bed of Beaver
Lake home eight thousand acres
of this land was accepted by the
State is settlement with John P.
Dunn and his sureties, and was
subsequently Bold by authority of
a State law ta the rate ofbno dollar
per acre. It is claimed that as
the bed of the lake was never
transferred by the United States
to the State of Indiana, that no
title ever vested in Dunn or the
State, and that pre-emptors have
the right to take up tbe reclaimed
land under the provisions ef the
United Swtcs laws. It is elear
that Dunn had no shadow of title
and that neither the State of In
diana nor the United States ever
received one cent of consideration
for the satao from him The lands
were stolen, and the State, by
accepting them from tbe twelves,
became in oue sense the receiver
of stolen, goods which she after
wards transferred ro the present
claimants for the price named. Mr.
Pratt's bill canfirms this fraudu
lent title, and as the State has
levied and collected taxes from the
occnpant3 of the land, it is plausi
bly argned this tba state should
defend the title of her grantees.
Mr Pkatt expressly disclaimed
any intention of defending the
Beiuht claim to a portion of the
stolen lands, and insisted that the
title to them mast bo fought out
in the courts. The Senate was.
convinced that Mr. Pratt's view
of the subject was correct, and
passed the bill. It is now up in
the House, and Mr. Ttxer has in
trodaced a bill declaring the land
to be the property of the United
States, and providing for their
survey and ssie, giving the occu
pants the first right to take them
at a stipulated price. The whole
business is fall of difficulty and
the theives Uavo adroitly managed
to entangle their rosealry clahns
with tbe inu-rcstiof many honest
people, who are forced to defend
knavery whi?e aiming to assert
