Commissioner of Common Schools
In announcing this' call wo deem
it not inapjiropriato .."to add a word
on the importance of the approach
es Convention. The success of the
ticket to bo nominated depends, m
a very great degroo, upon tho men
to bo put in nomination and tho
nnd . unanimity of the
nomination's. To this ond it is dc
sirublo and important that every
county should bo fully represented,
and tho will of tho people should bo
ascertained and expressed as nearly
as poPsiblcT 'Tho election will be
ono of vital importance to tho State
and country at largo, and will have
an important influcuco upon the
great contest of 1872. With a judi
cious selection of candidates and a
harmonious arid united effort the
Democracy can and will rodoom tho
Stato from .Radical misrulo, and
answer back to tho East, South and
West, the glorious news that Ohio is

Hon. Gideon Welles is ou
in a strong letter against the
policy pursued by Gen. Gran
and the Radical party agains
the States and the people o
the South. He declares
"If the people of the States
respectively cannot make and
execute their own Jaws, bu
are to be governed and con
trolled in their local mumcipa
affairs by a central power, then
American Democracy and
American Kepublicamsm are
mere shams and delusions."
Here is a centre shot from
Donn Piatt at the Grant ad

"They who control the Gen

backs upon the Constitution

throughout the powers wisely
delegated to the States, and I
now join the great array in op
position t0 that. I fought du
ring the late war against an
archy. I now propose to fight
against despotism."
Anarchy is what the Radical
leaders need to establish their
despotism; and by .their in
cendiary legislation they expect
to gain both.

Negro and White Social
Equality in the Common
Schools to be Enforced.
Fifty-one1 out of the fifty.
seven Republican members of
the 'Ohio' Legislature voted J to
have white and negro ,'childrenJ
attend the common schools, in
which I . they r. declared .' there
should be no distinction on ac
count! of color.; That c uestiou
will now.enter largely into the
legislative canvass this coming
election. On the. first vote the
proposition received fifty votes
In order to give an opportunity
to pass an amended school law,
which should hot contain the
obnoxious white and . black
mixture clause, Mr.' Parr, a
Democrat, moved to reconsid
er the vote, by which the bil
was lost; but on the second tri
al one more vote was added to
the Republican strength, ma
king fifty-one in favor of hav
ing whites and blacks in the
same school. That shows a
persistence of determination to
enforce the social equality o
whites aud blacks by legislative
enactment. So the question
must enter larp-ely into the
next canvass iu Ohio.
Donri Piattj the Washington
correspondent of the Cincinnati
Commercial, in his letter of th
22d inst., speaking of the late
District of Columbia Territo
rial election, and the-effovt thiv
may be made to enforce mixed
schools, as the Ohio Republ
cans are determined to 4urge
says : , ;-
"It would be a great outrage.
and probably result in the de
struction of the common school
system'. ' White 'Jiarents ' will
not consent to have their chil-l
dren sent to the mixed schools,
and iu this . they are perfectly
right. The student of Black
stone or the student of any sort
has been taught that there are
certain crimes considered crimes
in themselves, made so by the
law of God and the law of na
ture; there are other crimes
against that law, made such by
the municipal ordinances, or
more positively still by long
custom, which comfts to be' a
second nature, To this last
belongs the ' attempted social
equality to be brought about,
through tlie mixed education
of the two races. . No man can
send his child to one of these
schools without a sense of deg
radation, and the evil which
comes of this violation of our
social laws is as positive and as
well defined as that which
comes from the commission of a
crime against the law of God.
The parent who sends the child
into the society of negroes re
ceives in his or her moral na
ture as much punishment as if
the same child had been sent
among immoral characters."
That is strongly put, but not
too much so. The attempt to
compel this Pocial equality of
blacks and whites in the Com
mon Schools is an outrage
which no right-minded or right-
feeling parent should for a
moment countenance. The
Republican party intend to
have such laws , passed
everywhere, and in addition
thereto' another of compulsory
education, which will compel
the children of tho poor to as
sociate with the negroes. That
is the next step in the Repub
lican programme. It is the
last step,' , we are told, in the
path of progress : "emancipa
tion,'' .'. 'enfranchisement," I'so
cial equality." : , -
