An Over Taxed People.
Talk with your neighbors
coucerning your taxes and the
money you aunnally contribute
to add to the wealth of eastern
capitalists and monopolists who
grow fat from the labor of
western industry and enter
prise, and inscribe upon your
banners, "Let us Lave a change
for the public goodl". Work
lor your own and the redemp
tion of your country, and when
you have displaced the Treas
ury moths you will enjoy the
proceeds of your own industry
and enterprise, instead of con
tributing of your hard earned
money to add to the wealth of
rich men who grow more weal
thy under the fostering care of
the government anl the neces
sities of an over taxed people.
Where is the Radical Party?
In the New York Sun of
May 2 6, we find the two follow
ing tickets:
The People's Candidates.
For President:
William S. Geoesbeck

For Vice-President;

all the Radicals iuto whose

to fall, that the New York Sun
'shines for all" and whenever
it finds a dark spot it does not,
fail to let "light shine therein."
It stroncly opposes the "Office

ever he is found in "ways that

brightly upon him.

Another Mining Horror.
The terrible di a ter at the
Avondale mine in Pennsylva
nia, several months ago, had
almost its counterpart at Pitts
ton on Saturday. Fire broke
out in the'mining shaft, cutting
off the retreat of thirty eight
laborers, "men and boys, and
apparently dooming them to
certain death by suffocation.
Desperate exertions were made,
however, to rescue them, and
twenty of the number were
still alive when brought up,
the remainder being dead. It
would be difficult to exagger
ate the horrors of such a calam
ity, and the details, as reported
by telegraph, cannot fail to
create a profound impression on
the public mind.
After the 'warnings hereto
fore had, the proprietors of this
mine deserve severe censure
for having failed to take proper
precautions for the safety of
their workmen. It is time that
this reckless greed for making
money should have some ef
fective check. It' is enough
that the wages of workingmen
and their general interests
should suffer through the
grasping spirit of capitalists.
Their lives, at least, must be
held sacred. There can be no
real difficulty in avoiding such
calamities as those of the Avon
dale and Pittston mines, if only
little trouble and expense are
taken tor that purpose. This
fresh slaughter of miners should
not be permitted to pass into
oblivion witnouc someming ei-
fectual being done to prevent
the recurrence of such calami
ties in any of the mining dis
tricts in the future. .
About tho year 1085 tho Legisla

Another Mining Horror. Marriage Celebration----Tin Wedding.
! Saturday, May 27, 1871, was
the' 20th anniversary of ..the
weddiug day of Geokge and
Amanda Lantz, of this
place. During the evening of
that day about fifty of the rel
atives and friends, nearly all
being those who were present
at their marriage, assembled at
their residence aud partook of
a most excellent supper, and
had a grand time generally.
Everybody seemed to enjoy
themselves, especially at the
table. All their children six
in number were present on
the joyful occasion, except the
oldest. . -
Mrs. Lantz will accept our
thanks for a superabundance
of the most delicious cake.
Half-fake arrangements
have been made with mosof

from this county stop at the

city, during their stay at Columbus.

"The Way to Retain
Power is to Keep up Hell."
The Chicago Journal, an in
famous, dirty Mongrel sheet,
tells its readers that the only
oniinating piinciple left in its
party, is "sectional hatred."
It states that the moment this
dies out, the moment the recon
struction issue subside?, the
moment general amnesty is ac
corded to the South, and the
bond of Union once more be
comes complete, and universal
brotherhood again holds sway,
its caue is up; its party gone;
its defeat, inevitable! That
party with U. S. Grant at the
head of it, thrives only on the
wages of sin and iniquity. It
lives, moves and has its being
in riot, lust and all manner of
abominations. Its' life is the
death of the country at last.
The life and prosperity of the
country are its destruction.
Shall it be allowed to live after
lg72, white men?
The Richmond Inquirer
says the news from the Virgin
ia wheat crop is less favorable,
and that the fly, chinch-bug,
joint worm and rust have done
more or less harm, making it
probable that the yield will

year. :
The Kadical papers are try
ing to shirk the responsibility
of the doings of the late Legis
ture in this State. A Legisla
ture that can adopt the Negro
Suffrage Amendment, as thi
one did can not be anything
else than of the Radical per
suasion. Don't go back on
