Almost one year has elapsed sinco
" vr conyncnced tho publication of the
' 'Democratic Enquirer, and, now, on cx-
smination of our books, wo find sev
eral hundred dollars due us on sub
scriptions. Tho expenses of a Print
ing Office are greater, in proportion
to the amount of capital invested,
' than almost any other business, and
the greenbacks, or "Lincoln scabs,
' are requirod in every instance. In
view of these facts we find it our duty
1 to respectfully request a general set
tling up by those who are in arrears
"We do not indulge in the plan of
thrusting a dun at our subscribers ev
ery few weeks, but after a year lias
almost expired, we think the money
' is certainly due us, and request pay
ment accordingly. See terms of sub-
. ecription on first page.
The present Volume of tho Demo-
i cratio Enquirer will expire on tho 16th
of January, 18U8. The date of the
next issue after that date will be Jan
uary 23, 1868, and the beginning of
Volume II, whioh will be enlarged
from its present size, (24 columns,) to
2ft r.nlnmna. The tmner will contain
each week not less than fifteen times
the amount of reading matter it now
contains, the market reports, general
news from all parts of the world, &c,

As wo are on . the eve of another
Presidential campaign, one which is

political triumph. Wo claim your
assistance in this work as a duty you

PtofessoeJAoassii on thi Niorp. j
Professor Agassiz appears not to1
have as high an opinion of the negro
race as is. general in Boston, llow he
can live at the "hub" with such scien
tific opinions is a matter of surprise.
In a recent scientific lecture be said :
"I have pointed out over a hundred
specific differences- between tho bonal
and nervous systems of tbp white man
and negro. Indeed, their frames are
alike iu no particular. There Js not a
bone in the negro's body which is rela
tively the same shape, eiiio, articula
tion, or chemically of the saiuo com
position, as that ot tho white man.
The negro's bones contain a far great
er per centage of calcareous salt than
those of the white man; even the ne
gro's blood is chemically a very differ
ent fluid from that which courses in
the veins ... of the white man. The
whole physical organism of the negro
differs quite as much from the white
man's as it does from that of the
chimpanzee; that is, in his bones,
muscles, nerves, and fibers, the china
panzee has not much furthor to pro
gress to bocomo a negro than a nogro
has to become a white man. This
fact science inexorably demonstrates.
Climate has no
more to do with the difference be
twoen the white man and negre, than
it has between the horse and the ass,
or the eagle and the owl. Each is a
distinct and a separate creation. The
negro and white man were created 'as
different as the owl and the eagle.-
They were designed to fill different
places in the system ot nature. The
negro is no moro a negro by accident
or misfortune than the owl is the kind
of bird he is by accident or misfor
tune. The negro is no more the white
man's brother than the owl is the sis
ter of the eagle, or the ass is the
brother of the horse. How stupend
ous and yet how simple is the doc
trine that the Almighty Maker ot the
universe has created inherent species
of the lower animals, to fill the differ
ent places and offices in the grand
scenery 01 nature f
Pursuant to previous notice the
Democracy of Vinton County met in
Convention at the Court House, on
Saturday, December 28, 1867, at one
o'clock, P. JI., and organized by call
ing Orville Gunning to the Chair, and
appointing J. W. Bowen Secretary.
The Chairman stated that the ob
jeet of the meeting was to select four
delegates to represent Vinton county
m the Democratic Stato Convention
which will assemble in Columbus, on
the 8th of January next.
On motion, Dr. II. C. Moore, 0. T
Gunning, Hon. Arch. Mayo, and
Henry Reynolds were chosen as dole
gates; and,
. On motion, the (Jhairman was
authorized to appoint four Alternate
Delegates to supply the places of such
of the above as should fail to attend
The following wore appointed: S. C.
Case, J. J. Bhockey, Dan. S. Dana, and
J. W. Bowen.
On motion of Dan. S. Dana, the fol
lowing Resolution was unanimously
adopted: '
Whereas, Through the auspices of
the journal claiming to be the central
Democratic organ of the State of
Ohio, expression is sought through
the Democratic papers in the several
counties in the State in rolation to the
choice to bo made by the next' Legis
lature of a TJ. S.' Senator, in place of
Benj. F. Wade ; and, deprecating as
we do any attempt to bias and mis
lead our Legislators in expressing the
will of the people, yet since - an ex
pression is being sought, now, we, the
Demooracy of Vinton county, in Con
vention assembled do
Resolve, That, while we refrain from
expressions of condemnation of any,
we do hereby instruct our Represent
ative in the' State Legislature to use
his influence and cast his vote for. the
Hon. Clement L. Vallandigham, as
the first choice of the Democracy of
thia county for Baid office. ' .
On motion, the Convention adjourn
ed sine die. ' "
J. W. BOWEN, Sec'y.
What it is to Be a Democrat. To
be a Democrat ia to be a lover of good
government. A supporter of. none
but erooa Jaws, ana as iew oi inese as
possible. A defender of the rights of
minority. A respector of the rights
of others. A warrior for tho weak
and a defender of the defenseless. An
advocate for the greatest good to the
largest number, without injury to the
few. " ' '
. He believes In the right of the peo
ple to eat, drink, and wear whatsoever
they wish. He hates military govern
ment; wars upon .civil or military des
potism, and despises anarchy-breeders.
Democrats stand by the inherent
rights of all men and communities,
and recognizing the distinction exist
ing between the races. Such as Qod
made them, so he would have them can-,
tinuel This is Demooracy. '

Th Best Paper Published. The!
V.L TV... v.i. . . o-:P-
ward, Radical De"raocratio paper, with
a larger circulation than any other
Democratic journal ever published on
this Continent, and it enters on the
threshold of . 1868 more prosperous
and moro hopeful of the great cause
it upholds than ever before. Stand
ing on the foundation of the Declara
tion of Independence, that "all (white)
men are created equal," and therefore
entitled to equal rights, it is opposed
to all forms and degrees ot special
legislation that conflict with this grand
central truth, of Democracy, and over
all, and above all, does It combat that
monstrous treason to American liber
ty, which, thrusting the "negro ele
ment into our political system, must bf
necessity wreck the whole mighty fab
ric left us by our fathers.
The Day-Book demands the rcstora
tion ot the "Union as it was a
Union of co-equal States upon the
white basis, as the only hope, and the
only means possible under heaven for
saving the grand ideas of 1776, and
the fundamental principles of Ameri
can liberty, and if the real friends of
freedom, and the earnest believers in
that sacred and glorious cause in
which the men of the revolution of
fered up their lives, will now labor to
expose the ignorance, delusion, and
treason, of the Mongrel party, it will
succeed, and the white Republio of
Washington be restored again in all
its original beneficence and grandeur,
The Day-Rook will, however, here
after be more than ever devoted to all
the varied purposes of a news paper.
Conscious that it reaches thousands of
families who take no other journal,
beyond perhaps their local paper, it
will continue and improve its "News
of the Week" Summary, so as to pre
sent a transcript of the World's events
in each issue. Its "Famjly Depart
ment" will embrace the best original
and selected stories. Its " Agricultural
Department" will be fully sustained,
and being the only paper of its class
made up expressly for country circu
lation, it is confident that it is worth
double the price of a weekly hurriedly
reprinted from a daily. It gives full
and complete Reports of the New
York and Albany Cattle 'Jtfarkets;
Grain, Provision, and Cotton Markets,
and a Weekly Review of Financial
Matters, together with the Markets.
The terms are as follows:
One copy one year, $2 00
Three copies one year...... 5 50
Five copies one year, and one to
the getter up ot the club..;... 10 00
Ten copies one year, and one to
tho getter up of the club...;.. 17 50
Additional copies 175
Twenty copies one year, and one

The 8th or Januabt Com rumen ab

vex lions, held in pursuance of the call of
the State Central Committee, are over. The
Slateman has had its lay. We trust the
people have now bad theirs.
The peeiiiow of the Democracy of this
county is so well understood here, that it
seems almost superfluous to advert to it.
Since the denunciation pronounced by the
besotted Wade in the U. 8. Senate, the
Demooraoy in selecting his successor seem
to have with one accord united uoon
Vallandigham. This fact, no one who has
observed the signs of the timos and the
expressions of the people, oan doubt. So
perfeot was the acquiescence that no one,
until quitentently, dared to breathe the
name of any other. : We are nnwiUing to
believe that either Judge Thurman or his
real friends desire to be plaoed ia a position
of apparent antagonism to the mass of the
Democraoy. On . the contrary, we believe
that the apparent oompetitors for Senatorial
honors are upon the most friendly and inti
mate relations. We. belief e, too, that the
name of Judgei Thurman is .used not by his
real frieids-t-not at his instanoe but by
disorganisers, Democrats of doubtful posi
tion by 'his enemies men who would
destroy the harmony of the Democratic
party, for the sake of blasting the hopes of
the friends of Vallandigbam. , ,
We have been asked in former campaigns,
by the pretended friends of VaL, to wait.
We were told that "his time would soon
come.". . How we UiinK we nave waited long
enough, and that his time has come. The
mass of , the Democracy believe that it it
time now far the friends of Vallandigham
to wake npl Arouse, sleepers I The strug
gle of the campaign' of '63 is lo be, fonght
over again. The enemy' are ia oar own
camp. Let not those who once marched un
der the banner of. VaL forsake his cause
now. Bis cause is our own. The day of
his defeat will wi tneas the bursting of the
storm ; the disorganisation of 'the Democratic
party, and the overthrow of the hope, whiob
they for years past so, fondly indulged, of
restoring the Government "as it was," ia
the palmy days of the Democracy.

It should be a source of pride with the
friends of Vallandigham, that no question
of eontrotersy was mooted by them no
breach sought. They were willing to leare
the decision of the question to the Legisla
ture, where it properly belonged, and It was
only by a prostitution of the Democratic
press by his opposere whiob gate birth to
the division. We trust Juge Thurman, for
