Tut., eamnaip-n is moving in that
1 0 w
noble spirit of independence and ar
gumentative power that is carrying
hnmfl" conviction to the heart and
judgment of every person who is well
disposed to the good order and hap
piesB of the country. In tho hands
of the faithful patriots of the country.;
devoted to the cause of Constitutional
liberty; the Union of the States and
the Constitution unimpaired ; and
with facts that can not be refuted, the
Democracy is making rapid strides in
the midst of the people; and the hope
may be favorably entertained that
Ohio. willTedecm herself from under
the curse and thraldom of the fanati
cal; faction of the North who have
wejl "nigh ruined the country, and
threaten its entire destruction.
Wjiepeve you can find a man that
mfe'top and. talk with reason upon
the difficulties that now endanger the
entire people, you may reasonably en
ter'taib the fond belief that that man
hai'afl interest for your happiness aa
we&a'ij his own. And when you find
a man. of this " character, you have
foud. one' who has not laid aside
pripcile and become dishonest On
thither hand, when you find a man
who is lost to all- reason and common
semie.? who knows nothing to say but
"traUor,'Vcopperhead," and "sym-1
MnlkiAM " rnn hawAfAiini o man urir.h I
pathizer," 'you fyave. found a man with
wh)5flMf would be dangerous to trust
your life.-' He has J3ecdme a raving
wild, crazy fanatic, and i knows not
ho'fo. talk, only, to abuse you and his
neighbor, perhaps the only friend he
has-'wh would do him the smallest ot
favQrsiiJ he regards, as a '."traitor,'
"rebel)" or "copperhead." - - y '
ravejjthe, country;', oyer and you
find this class of men in almost every
neighb'orhood-'-mett who have become
strangers to law and order and tram
ple undeV foot the Constitution of our
Govegjment. .."With such men there
is but little, hope; ; They pray fo$ war
again inpreforence to peace and har.
mony and, the happiness of the entire
country. .
: Such men are worse enemies to the
country cthan : the roving bands
highway robbers, arid will . even dare
to molest the happiness of the citizens
of the country rather than promote
its hatipiness: Some of this same
class of cititizens go' so far , as to say
that they to-day perfer war and bloodshed
in preference to that' iff harmony
and the benign influence of peace.
" Sufh meh afe entirely lost to reason
and common sense; they have become
politically insane. - Though to-day
these are . found in the ranks of the
political -stumpers of the "BO-called''
Union party, and belong to every cast
and grade, from. the highest to the
lowest, of the campaign stumpers;
Ben Wade being one for instance.
The only argument these men are
urging upon the people is a rehash of
old political prejudices engendering
strife and discord -i-with the howling
cries of "traitor,", "rebel," "copper
head," "butternut," and "sympa'
thizer I" exhorting men to stand fast
"go not thence" all for the purpose
of accomplishing their own destruc
tive schemes and spoliations of the
"Would it not be much better for
these factionista and destructionists to
use arguments of reason and the in
torest of tho people at large than to
appeal to the passions of the mind,
engendering strife, discord, and un
happy feelings, not only to themselves
but to all with whom they converse?
We think it would. "We are certain
of one thing, at least: it would prove
their sincerity for the welfare of the
Government to come out and "reason
liko men, instead of vile abuse and
personal slang. "While these men are
not only trying to humbug the honest
portion of the people upon questions
of policy of the Government, they
are seckiug to enforce Negro Suffrage
with all of its hateful measures upon
the people, giving no cause why such
a measure should be imposed; while
other political maniacs or consummate
fools Bay, they consider the Negro far
better and more entitled to exercise
the elective franchise than tho ."red
mouthed Irish," or the "lop-eared
Dutch 1" Such assertions have been
made by men of high political stand
ing, and men of a .lower grade, who
do not reside far away. What do
they mean? and who are they? They
are men who prefer war and blood
shed, ruin and devastation, to that of
Union, harmony, and peace ; and such
expressions, low and vulgar as-they
may be, are made only for the purpose
of bringing on difficulty.
These expressions, or their equiva
lents, are the only arguments adduced
in favor of the Union party and the
prosperity of our Government,; by
many who bear the rank and title of
gentlemen in our midst.; With shame
to them, may it be said, that they are
greater enemies to the Union, of the
States and the Constitution of our
fathers than the worst rebel in the
world, or any sympathizer with rebellion.-'
K.-V V----
While these men are thus pursuing
this course, we say to the noble and
patriotic men who have gone forth in
the defence of our common rights, the
,f and the Constitu-
tion of pur fathers unimpaired, to no.-
bly wield the sword of argument by
producing such facts in the . history of
this party as will show the spirit and
intent of the leaders of this faction
and . put a quietus upon , their course
forever afterward. . When the . people
are made to see by adducing facts too
plain fo be mistaken, and are shown
just what 0 these men are determined
to do, they will never vote oif act with
them; for it is, first, presumed that a
majority of the people are honest, and
their intentions are to do right, alj
though they, sometimes may err j bat
justico, reason,' ahd'eommon sense are
the creat pillars of argument in -the1
promotion of right and the prevention;!
uon 01 wrong, juci we ipeopie in

high-upon Reason's throne, measures

Look at this Offer. The Publishers of
tho American Agriculturist show their
enterprise by offering that valuable
journal free for the remaining three
months of this year to all new sub
scribers for 18C8, (Vol. 27,) who send
in their subscription during this month
of . September. The cost of . the jtyrt
culturist is only $1.50 for a year, or
four copies for $5, so that $1.50, (or
$1.25 each for four persons.) if sent
to the publishers this month, will se
cure the paper for fifteen months. We
adviso all to make haste to accept this
offer. The money could not be better
invested, for that paper, at its present
subscription price, is one of the cheap
est in the . worm, it is designed-lor
the Farm, Garden, and Household.
It has readers almost everywhere,
among the .old and the young, and
not its least recommendation is the
fact that the children are delighted
with its Boys' and Girls' Department.
Each number contains 32 to 44 large,
quarto papes, full of interesting and
valuable matter for readers both in
country and city. Its Engravings are
costly ana beautirul, and calculated
not only to please the eye, but to im-
firove the taste. We have also seen
rom month to month exposures "of
the various Humbugs and Swindling
Operations of the day, which .must
have saved tens of thousands of dol
lars to the unwary. We are sure you
will thank us for bur advice if you

Thk annual taxation in Ohio, under
Democratic rule, used to be as follows :
State and loeal taxes,
Federal taxes.
$16 000 000
ToUl, . - - 1 $23,000,000
Thisrwas at the rate of about 810 a
head upon each person in the the
State. Now, look at it last yoar,'tin
der Radical ascendency: . ; ,:.;.
State and looal taxes, ; . , ; .$21 000 000
Federal taxes, " . ' ' ,' ' . 67 000.000
Total, , , $78,000 000
Thoso figures are obtained in this
way: Ohio pays about one-tenth of
the expenses of the Federal Govern
ment. Last year they amounted to
$570,000,000, which would make our
share $57,000,000,. as above stated.-
In the days of Democratic ascenden
cy the Federal Government only cost
$70,000,000 a year, and our share was
but $7,uuo,uuo. We are now taxed in
Ohio thirty-two dollars upon each per
son, or about two hundred dollars to each
fambjt. Is it any wonder that our
people are groaning under a burden
of taxation, when from each family
$200 in taxes,. direct and indirect, has
to. be obtained? Only think of it,
nearly $80,000,000 taxes wrung out of
the hard oarnings and industry of the
State each year I
The people havo a remedy for this:
Restore the Democracy to power, and
they will pay off the bonded debt in
greenbacks, and thus save in interest
alone one-third .of all the Federal
taxes. They will save another third
by reducing the army and navy, and
by retrenchment of expenditures.
Thus we can approximate to the old
limit of taxation.
"Give us the Nigger vote and influ
ence, or we perish I" cry the Radicals.
"Perish and be 1" reply the
Democracy; "we cannot permit you
to degrade the White race by elevating
the Nigger to Political Equality."

The result of Free Negroism, after
an experiment ot seventy years, in

ment of a foreign resident, is:

brought the once splendid plantations to

"We passed by many or through

"In the time of the French occupa
