Th SHXATOR3HIP. We desire to
have and mean to have no controversy
with tho Columbus Statesman, or any
other Democratic paper in Ohio, on
the subject of "United States Senator.
At the same time it would be more
candid for the Statesman to lay asido
its claims to be tho contral organ of
tho Ohio Democracy, and oponly
avow itself tho partisan of Judgo
In its issue of the 22d instant we
find the following:
'The Democratic members of tho
last Legislature unanimously put him
rTiiflirn Thurmanl in nomination, and
voted for him for the United btates
v . P . . i x.' -rT:i..j ei
Senate. It is true the Democrats had
no majority in that body then. Why
did thev thus put him in nomination
and thus vote for him? Why did they
not nominate and vote for Mr. I allan
dinham insteadT Had they done so,
that would have been putting him
"openly" belore tho people of tho
Stntn n "a candidate" in the late
filfiction. Tho act of the last Legisla
turo in nominating and voting for
Jugdo Thurman for the United States
Senate gave the people to understand
that ho was a man worthy to be
elected to the Senate, and that very
f-irftnmstance mav have led many
T)omnfriitic editors to conclude that
now that we have a majority in the
itipomimr Legislature, and to secure
which ho contributed as much as any
other man, it would be highly proper
to ratify that nomination or tne dem
ocratic portion of the Legislature.
Judge Thurman, too, has reason to
conclude that he has the right to con
sider himself qualified. to be elected
to the United States Senate inasmuch
as he received that unanimous sup
port last year in the Legislature, or is
it allowed for him to be a candidate
only at such time when there is no
chance of an election 7" ;
Now we are authorized to answer
the question asked by tho Statesman,
which we print in italics. The Dem
ocratic members of tho Legislature
two years ago, did not nominate and
vote for Mr. Vallandigham, for this
reason: On tho 9th of November,
1865, Mr. V. received a confidential
letter from a most intimate friend of
Judge Thurman, resident in Colum
bus, urging Mr. Vallandigham to de
cline, in favor of Thurman for the
"complimentary vote" for: Senator.
Mr. V. answered, agreeing to do so, on
tho express condition that this com
pliment, was not in any way to em.
barrass him in 18C7, nor to be regard
ed as giving Thurman any advantage
in a future contest. On the 11th o
November Mr. V. roceived a reply
from the same gentleman, (part of
which is stated to bo from the Judge's
"own lips,") giving the most positive
assurance that Judge Thurman only
desired the vote as a "compliment"
and that if tho Democrats had carried
the Legislature he would not have
been a candidate, but would have sup
ported Mr. V., and furthert that it
should give the judge no superior
claim in tho future; and requesting
Mr. V. to decline and "load off" for
Thurman, bo that his nomination
might be "unanimous;" which he
accordingly did the next day through
the columns of the Dayton Empire.
This then is the reason why the
Democratic membors of the Legisla
ture two years ago "did not nominate
and vote for Mr. Vallandigham for
Senator." It was because his declina
tion expressly in favor of Judge
Thurman was procured upon consul
tation with the Judge, by the especial
friend of the latter. t)ayion Ledger,

Johnson's Menagerie, at Washington,
continues to draw crowded nouscsr-
the Senate and House both being full.
Soma of the Managers of the bhow
aro very unruly even : moro bo than
the colored animals-and threaten
Mr. Johnson, tho proprietor, with de
struction and death. He does not
enter the cage. .On .Tuesday of last
week he sent a large manuscript in to
tho managers, ring masters, clowns,
colored gentlemen, etc., which is call
ed a Message. Some of them didri't
know what it was; and one of the
colored managers objected to having
the piece read, when he was booted
out of the ring; and tho piece was
read by one of tho monkeys in a kind
of sneering way becauso it came from
Mr. Johnson. Some parts of the piece
are a success. . 'iney aon iwiuh jouu
son to own tho show any longer.
They threaten him terribly. One day
last week they mado a last desperate
effort to assumo entire control of the
bv "cloaninff out" Mr.
Johnson. They iptroduccd a new
performance into tho Show, but many
of tho managers, clowns, &c, objected
to entortaininff tho large audiences
- v .
with such a costly performance, toar
ing it would break up the country.
They took a vote on it in tho show
and tho showmen cloancd it out, in
stead of cleaning out Mr. Johnson, by
an encouraging and overwhelming
majority. A very old manager in the
show, called Thad. Stcvoris, makos his
appearance occasionally during the
performances, but is too feeble to help
entertain tho audionce. They are
now giving a very fine and tasty en
tertainment, except occasionally they
have a Very unsatisfactory African
performance. They will likoly ro:
main there until tho 4th of March.
For the Holidays!
The popular firm of Dari.
"Will & Bras.;.' always 'know
when to bring new goods to this
market. Aaron TiTill, of the
above firm, is now in the city
purchasing a new assorment of
goods of every description for
the Holidays. - It is only neces
sary for ua to say to the public
that they will have every arti
cle any one may wish during
the Holidays," at lower prices
than at another time in fact,
they are determined kto sell ev
erything lower than any other
House during the holidays. Go
and look at their Goods first,
The cries ot the poor never
enter the ears of the covetous
man; or, if they do, he has al
