The Opening of the Present
Hon. J. II. PiTNAir, tho talented
editor of the Chillicothe Advertiser, at
tended with Hon. A. G. Thubman, our
candidate for Governor, a number of
the first meetings' of tho' campaign, of
which ho speaks, in part; hs follows,
in that paper of last week:
"We had tho pleasure of attondincr.
with Judge Thurman, the meetings of
last, wcerc, in 1110 counties 01 rike,
Scioto, Jackson and Vinton. They
wcro tho first series of the campaign,
andlwcrein every respect remarkable
successes, i In our experience in Ohio
politics, we have never seen conven
tions of the people, bo arly in the
canvass, so full of that energy, cnthu-
, siasm, and confidence which presages
victory. The meetings in WavcrlyJ
Jackson, and McArthur wero the
. largest ever held in those counties, ex
cepting in the memorable campaign
Of '63.. v .... ; 4. ,
The opening rneetingVt Wavcrly on
tho 5th, was in every respect, a mag
nificent affair. The delegations were
so largo that they could not be de
ployed in the streets for want of
room. Seycrtil townships were repre
sented by their Entire' Democratic
vote, and others, not only by the Dem
ocratic vote of Inst fall,"but by acces
sions from, tho Radical ranks, judge
Thurman made his powerful argument
against-Negro suffrage.
At Jackson, the da- was ushori
by" the' firing of cannon,' and' (he
cd in
pie commenced pouring into the town
by 7 o'clock in tho morning, and by
12 o'clock, at least four thousand per
sons were : present. ; The exercises
'vvr6 i held, in the beautiful Fair
Grounds. Judge Thurman , spoke
nearly two hours almopt exhausting
tho. subject of Finance. ' He showed
conclusively that 'the only safety for
k a onnntrv ia to Dut tho brakes upon
Radical extravagance, and to devote
onr resoirrcos to the .paymont of our
debts instead of keeping - large stand
ing armies, loyal leeches, and Treed
men'B Bureaus to perpetuate rpnrty
ascendency." ... 1 ' '-', !
The meoting at McArthur was a
duplicate of the Jackson meoting, on
ly much larger. Fully five thousand

ZALESKI, August 20, 1867.
Mr. Editor: Having been a soldier
in the last war (private in Co. B, of
llio illl iivg li vuiu i ui. xixi anu
voted with the Republican ' party du
ring that time, I desiro through your
paper to give briofly my reasons for
so during. "VVhon the war broke out,
tho cry of the Republicans wad that
"V7e should forget nlh party" -ties and
all should unite to suppress tho rebel
lion." They Baid it was a war "For
the Constitution and to bring back
the Southern States to their allegiance,
mnd when that was accomplished the
War should cease." vl had taken the
oath - to support the Constitution of
tho United States, and felt willing and
ready , to -fight for the Union;, and I
volunteered. I had always before act
ed, with' the Democratic party; but
was willing to take the Republicans
at their word that they would lay
aside all party and all party feeling
and unite with tho Democrats in bring-;
mg back the South to her alloglanco
to the Constitution ,arid laws of tho
United StatcsjJ f t i ! Yi V. :
In voting with the Republican and
against the Democratic party, I am
now satisfied that 1 mistook; my duty
to iyf country .and- to myself. I am
now" satisfied that the Republican par
ty is a sectional, party and that its ob
ject waa not to restore the Union nn-
uer av uiisliluiiuu. x uiu buiisiiuu
that thoir purpose is to destroy the
Constitution ; to subject the South to
tho North ; to destroy her State Gov
ernments, and reduce her to a terri
torial form of Government, or what is
still worse to subject her to a kind of
military despotism; 1 am now satis
fied that the object of tho Republican
party .was not to restore the Govern
ment under the Constitution, but to
destroy it; and that they aro now dis
regarding all the pledges which they
gave the soldier in the early period of
the war. ; for inese reiisons i ao not
think that either duty or patriotism
should lead me farther to go with that
party. I am not willing to voto with
a party which is' j'secking to place the
Negro on terms of pqualityrrcivilly
and politically--with1 the whites ; nor
do I helieve anv nartv worthv of the
support of tho Irishmen of this coun
try which is seeking to do bo. I shall
therefore give my vote and my active
support to the Democratic party, be-(
cause I havo always found them light-
ins in defense ot Constitutional liber-
I wiHh to nav n.Isn that, whilo I was
in the army, though the Republicans.
were very ready with their promises
of assistance to the families of volun
teers, I am indebted chiefly , and almost
entirely to tho Democrats for their
kind assistance of myfamily and my
self.. I take tin opportunity,. howovi
cr, to mention . the" personal Aacts of
kindness jrendcreq mo .whilo in the
service, by, Sir. Hesoltine and his es
timablo Lady,' by ' furriishin'g both

1 ..Jf , And it came to pass that when
thord began to reign J in jh city;; IIe;
commanded his people to build a mighty
house for Him to dwell in,, ... ,..,, . r
,. 2 And the Lord called all His bffi.
oers and all Uis ' people 'together, so
they could reason among thesclves about
the building of a large mansion for the
Lord. ! V i -1 ' . ;" n ).::;( I !.!.
3 And when they had gathered
themselves together, they all agroed
among themselves, that the mighty man
sion for thoir Lord should be built Of
brick and .. upon the highest hill
within the .mighty oity, and
not low down ia the Band liken untd
tho pra6e" where lie" Chier Ruler and
His mighty men did build the Baitwty
Shops. '' ".'.I
; 4 And the. officers of .I the Lord reaj
Boned among themselves, and sayeth one
to another: The mighty hill where the
mansion shall be built, shall henceforth
and forever be called "Tho Heights."
5 And the Lord looked down upon
his people and smiled Upon them, and
said, Yia, Yea. ' : : "'
' 6 And even onto this day the migh
ty hill is called "Tbe Hiehta;" and the
people from afr off look upon the ooigtis
ty mansion witb wonder ana asionisn'
1 7 And more than three-score and ton
layers of briok andbewersof wood goeth
forth and buildeth the Great Mansion
fur the Lord. . But the . historians in
gathering up tbe aots and doings of the
Lord faileth to 1 understand whether the
many laborers reoeived all their haidi
arned nieces of silver, as tbe Lord is very
slow on the payment to His laborers of
all pieces of silver round about tne num
8 And the Lord removeth unto His
Gfreai Mansion" where He' could overall
the city, au(Tall the lands round about
the city, even all tbe lands In the migh
Provinoe. . 9 And He made many very Btrange
laws and orders for the government of
the people, evjn setting at 1 naught all
the laws of the First Chief Ruler. '
10 ; And it came o pass that great;
many poor people eame to dwell in : the
city, inasmuch as the Lord had promised
thorn many things, even many pieces of
silver and. many, loaves . and fishes, if
they would come, and dwell with iHim
io the Proviaoe, for tbeir labor on the
mighty worka in tho city. : '.
. 11 And: when the Lord found that
these poor pecple were within his migh
ty iron grasp, and that they were so poor
that thoy eould not go affar off to dwell,'
tbe Lord became more and more tyrau
nioal, because there was about to be : a
famine among . the poor and Buffering
people, gs He refused to give them
enough ot pioces of silver, and loaves,
and fisbce, and many other small neevs
saries of life. 1 ! M ', .
12 And it . oame . to pssi that the
Lord reasonath with himself and said: I,
the Lord, - do -. find, upon overlooking
the city from this, my, mansion, that
more than four-score and one hundred
young lads Of the city are around upon
my lends stealing more than ten baskets
full, and that all the huBdreds and thou
sands of tores of land round about tbe
oity, crer which I reign, ii insufficient
to support these poor, miserable, wicked
"oroatures," even "those Buckeyes," and
"those Irish,'' whom I, the Lord,' have
in my power, and in such a, reduoed
state of poverty that they ean not go
afareff to dwell in other Jands; ': ,
13 And, I, therefore, warn , all ye
that dwell, io the eity, in tbe name of all
atv and ootnmandroenc, in . the name of
