Sixteen Million Dollars ! 11 of That's all. Or nearly all that radical re form has increased tho expen ditures during the past year 1 One million additional for the expenses of Congress I One million additional for collecting the revenue from customs ! One million additional for miscellaneous expenses ! One million additional for the department of the Secre tary of the Interior. , Eight hundred thousand ad ditional to the post office de partment. Etc., &c, &c. Thousands I tens of thous amis 1 millions 1 millions upon top of millions out of the pockets of the people into the pockets of the plunderers. So it goes. An increase in the expend! ture.s we should say thievery and speculating in every de partment from tho top down, until it reaches sixteen millions of dollar?. Add this to the expenses of the year before nnd we have four hundred and sixteen millions, of dollars, as the cost of a radical adminis tration for one year. Is it worth that to yci workingmcn of tho country ? Are yon benefitted by radical rule, aud bond aristocracy, and standiug armies, and Ku Klnx hunters, to the amount of four hundred and sixteen millions of dollars annually ? Democratic administrations cost you less than one hund red millions per year. ' And Democratic adminis trations didn't steal your pub lic lands, exempt the rich from taxation, or impoverish you with tiiriffs on every thing you eat, wore, smelled, looked at or iliouj-liL of. The bondholder paid his taxes as well as the laborer; the rich were required to aid in bearing the expenses of the government as well as the poor; and economy in every department and under all circumstances was the guiding rule. The hard working man, who read this statement can use it as food for retlection. It is him and his brother toilers who pay the expenses of the gov ernment. It is from the sav ings of the men who "earn their bread by the sweat of their brows," that the four hundred and sixteen millions of dollar's is taken annually three hundred and sixteen mil lions of dollars more than is necessary to pay all the re quired expenses of the govern ment. And after robbing them to this extreme, radicalism has the impudence to ask them to en dorse the ; administration that is doing it, to vote for candi dates whose election would be hailed as a direct endorsement of tho thieves who aie impov erishing them, and the rascali ty that requires them to pay almost five times as much year ly to administer the affairs of the government, as they paid under democratic rule. A vote for the radical ticket will be a vote to sustain the thievery aiid corruption, nnd extravagance, and oppression of the Grant Administration. The Columbus and Hocking Valley Railroad .'Company are now using the patent air break on all their passenger trains. l)y use of this break the engin-, eer can stop a train under full headway, in one half tlio time occupied in the old way.'

McARTHUR, O. There it is Again. In 1S40 the Democratic par ty was accused by its politica opponents with an inteution to reduce the workingman s w ges down to what wa3 then represented as the pauper la bor of Europe. It was asser ted in every imaginable form that the Democratic party would, it snccesstnl, crush out prosperity and fill the land with wailing and lamentation, be cause, it was asserted, it was in favor of a money system tha would render the country mon evless. Now it is claimed thai the Democracy of Ohio are in favor ot a money system tha will make money too plenty and innate prices nnd enter prise. It seems difficult for the Democratic party to satisfy the Opposition, no matter what attitude it may assume. The farmer, the laboring man, the mechanic, the. merchant and the man of enterprise, we take it, could stand a little more money than they are now in the habit of getting. Wayne County Democrat. IF. If it were' lit for the Radical party there would have been no rebellion. If there had been no Radi cal party many noblemen who now sleep in unknown graves would be acting their parts in the drama of life. If there had, been no Radi cal party the nation would not now be groaning under griev ous taxation and a heavy debt. If it had not been for the Dis union Radical' party, the vast substance of this nation, wasted in a four years war, would yet have been a part of tho wealth of the land. If it had not been for the Radical party there would have been no riot in New York. IF. MONEY POWER IN THE OHIO ELECTION. A dispatch from "Washing ton to the New York Evening Post says that at a meeting of the Ohio Republican Associa tion, the ' announcement was made that the State Execative Committee at Columbus had determined to send a circular to each clerk from that State in the Departments, requesting a contribution of one per cent, on their salaries for political purposes. Collectors for each of the Departments were ap pointed,. and curiously enough, D. C. Cox, of the Interior De partment, a member of the Civil bervice Commission, was appointed to receive the mon ey in that Department. There is no doubt but that the Radicals have raised, and are now raising a mammoth corruption fund to carry Ohio this fall. In addition to this levy on the salaries of the of fice-holders at "Washington, a like contribution has been ex acted from Republican officials, federal, State, county and mu nicipal in Ohio. The levy in Washington will ' produce from six to ten thousand dollars, and in Ohio probably twice or three times as much. We have then a fund from these sources of not less than forty thousand dollars, exclusive of such con tributions as may be made by the candidates for State offices and Senatorial aspirants. Sherman, Delano and Noyes, for instance, have gained great wealth in the public service, and will come down liberally. Take Noyes as an example, lie has been a citizen of Ohio not quite twelve years, and during five of these he has held the two best paying offices in Hamilton county, from which he has netted not less than six ty thousand dollars. His con tribution to the Committee is voriously estimated at from one to five thousand dollars. We acknowledge that it is but jus tice to the Ohio Republicans that he should contribute hand somely. for but few Southern carpet-baggers have realized a more nagnificent per centage on their moral ideas than has this shrewd New Hampshire Yankee by peddling his in Ohio. There is no doubt as to the use to which the immense cor rup ion fund under the control of the Radical State Committee is to be applied. It will be thrown into close legislative districts, and negro votes colo nized from one country to an other, in order to cany the Legislature. We hear this work of colonizing negroes is already in progress, and it is importaut that Democrats in certain close counties, contigu ous to counties with a large negro population, should be on their guard. The Mercer Stand ard charges that John Sherman has deposited a thousand dol lars in the tewn of Van Wert to be used in electing a Repre sentative from Van Wert coun ty who will vote for Lira for Senator. ' We have no doubt thia is true. Van -Wert is a close county, but on a fair vote will go Democratic. Coloni zing negroes is the game by which it is to be carried. This is only one of a dozen or more counties where the same lawless fpolicy will be attempted. It is to promote this system of swindling that tho Radicals have exacted their immense corruption fund. The honest and legitimate expenditures of a campaign like this, with no 'montttcr mass meetings" or imported and feed speakers, are very light, and the conclusion is irresistablo that the Radicals will uso tho money they are accumulating for colouizing purposes. It can be disburs ed in no other way unless it is distributed among the political bummers as a gratuity. To show the facilities the Radicals possess for raising large sums of money by black mailing office holders, we need only refer to the fact that last year their Executive Commit tee was furnished with more more money than they could use. Their Committee treas ury was running over with greenbacks plundered from clerks and other Government, employes. "When the campaign closed there was over a thous and dollars unexpended in the hands of the Committee, and this was voted as a gratuity to Mr. R. A. Harrison, its Chair man, we suppose for his effi ciency in promoting civil' serv ice reform by bleeding office holders. We mention these facts for the benefit of our friends throughout the State, that they may know the corruption they will have to encounter. We can not meet it by like expen ditures, even if so disposed, for our uommutee nas but little . . , . -, ..... money tor even the legitimate expenses of the canvass. We have no clerks to black-mail, and no officials corired with public plunder to draw upon. There is but one way to meet the corruptiomsts, and that is, tor every Democrat to enter upon the work of the canvass with his whole heart and soul. If that is done, Democratic en tnusiasm anu zeal will Drove . I 1 ei more than a match for Radical stealings, and we will cany the fotate. Democratic Meetings.

The Coshocton Democrat and the McArthur Enquirer con tain editorial articles concern ing the proposed call of Con vention to amend the State Constitution. Neither of these papers has yet seen any suffi cient reason tor holding such convention, and they therefore decline to favor it until the advocates of the measure show that it is needed. This is right. The expense of a convention would be more than that of State Legislature, and there is no knowing but the Constitu tion would be damaged instead of improved by the changes. If there is a general demand in the public mind for any partic ular amendment, let it be nam ed ; and when the Legislature meets it cau submit it to a vote of the people. This is a cheap er and more direct way of ma king a change in an instrument, which, as a whole, is not the subject of complainf. New ark Advocate. Blanchester Fair, August 29, 30, 31 and September i. The Methodist Church at Lancaster has been repaired aud decorated. Street preaching in Chilli cothe, on Sundays. Col. Sara. Pike is about startiug a newspaper at Lees burg, Highland county. Florence's peach crop, Madi son cqunty, is a total failure this season. James Emmitt has disposed of one of his Cashmere goats to Adam Forepaugh, for $300. " Bowen and Brown of Clarks burg, are extensively engaged in the manufacture of Cider Mills. Rev. Mr. Ely, son of Seneca W. Ely. Has taken charge the Episcopal church, at llills boro. Messrs). Weir and Coverdale have submitted' a water works proposition to 'the Chillicothe couucil. ' ' " Home First. An exchange very appro priately remarks that every citizen of a town onght to be interested in building it up. wery capitalist of a town ought to use his means in stim ulating some wealth producing: ndustry. The man who invests lis money in an establishment that makes plows, threshers, reapers, mowers, woolen good, etc., is a local public benefac tor. There is no mistake about dm. All such enterprises naturally stimulate the growth and' add to the wealth of the communities in which they are established. Every dollar kept at home has its advantages, more or less, for cverv citizen. The most wealthy and prosper ous eitios and towns in the world are those that work up on the co operative plan that aim to build up their own mer chants, manufactures, mechan ics, laborers, etc. Every cent li verted from home is so much taken from home consumers, and lessens, to a greater or less extent, the ability of home men to meet their liabilities. - The Radicals in this region iave ranch to sny about Dem ocratic "rings and "cliques, but seem oblivious to the fact hat "rings" are the order of the day in the Radical camp. Radicalism ha3 never been without them, and from pres ent indications never will. It owes its existence to "rings ;" it lives and thrives upon "rings" Without its "rings' it would famish and perish utterly.
