It is rumored among
Democratic politicians that
inary conference will shortly be held
in New York for the purpose of con
sidering the subject of a' candidate for
the next Presidency.
In response to its nomination, Gov
ernor Horatio Seymour has written
to tho Democratic Union, of TJtica, N.
Y., that he will not be a candidate for
the Presidency before the next Nation

aristocrats, and ragged paper for poor
men and crippled soldiers. The
Record is "loyal," of course.

The New York Herald says that
"the taxes are only a thousand mil
lions a year for the whole country,"
One thousand millions a year paid in
taxes, by the peoplo of the United
States! Three hundred dollars for
each man, woman and child, white
black, and copper colored in the
whole Republic. What think you?
Tite Vinton Record is in favor of
taxing all working men heavily so as
to enrich bondholders, aristocrat, New
England manufacturers, &c. There
will be a Congress to elect next year,
and we hope all the Record's pets who
come before the people will be defeated.
