OFFICE tn Second Story of Bowon's
Biiililiiie. North 8ido of Main Struct. East of
Court House.
August 30, 1871
The election on tho 10th of
October is the most important
ever held in Ohio. A Legis
lature is to ho chosen, which
will elect a United States Sen
ator and re-district the State of
Ohio for Congressmen for the
next ten years. A Governor
and many other State officers,
as will be seen by referring to
the ticket in another column,
are to be chosen, besides an
i nportant ticket in this county.
The result in Ohio this fall will
have an important bearing on
the Presidential election of
1872. A Democratic victory
in October next will no doubt
settle the question where Ohio
will stand next year, and go
far towards deciding the Tres
idential content. It therefore
behooves Democrats to be up
and doing; nnd there is no
better mode of arousing the
party in every school district
in Vinton county and bringing
out every vote, than the wide
circulation of Democratic pa
pers during the campaign.
We are sending the McArthur
Enquirer for mouth3 for
only 25 cents, and an extra
copy free to any address for
every club of ten. And if
there are persons who may be
too poor to pay that amount,
send us their names, and we
will send the paper to them.
Now, Democrats, and all the
Republicans who are with u?
this year, go to work in every
school district, and send in the
names and nil the money you
can. No postage to be paid in
the county.
Our revolutionary fathers
made the following statement
of grievances against the Brit
ish King :
He taxed tea.
He had a stamp tax.
He excited tho negro to in
He made the military above
the civil power.
Ho paid no respect to our
constitution and
Ho was a tyrant generally.
Those grievances read sing
ularly now, .in view of the
action of the present Admin
istration. Be sure that you
vote against tho present grand
children of the old British
Hickory trees are unusually
full of nuts this year. A sure
sign of Democratic victory,
Smash It.
The cry of tax payers now is
'smash the corrupt Hing who
control the people's money.'
N umerous Republicans declare
boldly their determination to
ay aside their partisan prefer
ences and are ready to vote
with any party that will break
) the nest of corruption ex
isting in this county. Why,
think of it!
Smash It. Ku Klux.
The damnable Ku Klux Law
passed by Grant's Congress
last winter didn't have but lit
tle effect upon the Kentucky
election, although the Radical
leaders attempted to tret
the negroes into trouble
with the Democrats, and then
telegraph to Useless Grant that
the Ku Klux had interfered
with the election.
The Democratic majority
for Governor of Kentucky, at
the late election, is almost 39,-
000. The complexion of the
Legislature is as follows:
House Democrats, 82; Repub
licans, 18. Senate Demo
crats, 35; Republicans, 3.
That will do for Kentucky.
Let Ohio do someshinar next
October. Let us work for a
good majority.

Col G. W. McCook Unable
to Speak.
We regret to announce that
Colonel McCook, the Demo
cratic candidate for Governor
of Ohio, has been compelled to
withdraw temporarily, per
haps from the canvas?, owing
to ill health, The Columbus
dispatch, conveying this intelli-
ce, says that the Colonel
takes this step with great re
luctance, and only upon the
advice of medical men of emi
nence, who say that his system
is so prostrated by his labors
in the intensely hot weather of
the last three or four weeks, as
to make rest absolutely neces
sary. 1 he meetings appointed
for him will be held by other
speakers supplying his place.
The Cincinnati Enquirer, in
speaking of Col. McCook and
the canvass, says :
"We bad hoped that there
would be no necessity for more
than a passing notice of the
illness of Col. McCook, the
Democratic candidate for Gov
ernor. We looked upon it as
a case of over exertion, which
would pass off with a few
days' rest. But the illness
seems to be of so grave a na
ture as to require from the
Chairman of the Democratic
State Central Committee a card
announcing that Col. McCook
has been compelled to suspend,
for the present, his canvass of
the State. From all that we
can learn of Col, McCook's ill
ness, we do rot think he will
again appear on the stump.
A repose of a month or two is
absolutely essential to recuper
ate his prostrate system. Un
well when he commenced the
canvass, he has prosecuted it
through the hot season with a
vigor and unyielding persist
ence that could be maintained
only by the most robust health.
Ho was not in the possession of
the physical power he suppos
ed. Pride and ambition stim
ulated him to persevere, but
nature could not hold out, and
the Colonel is compelled to
yield to her demands. Other
speakers will fill Col. McCook's
That the permanent success of
Radicalism is the destruction
of the Republic ;
That the Radicals have de
stroyed the writ of habeas cor
pus; Have driven our shipping
from the seas ;
Have inaugurated high tar
iffs; Have burdened us with
heavy taxes;
Have placed us under mili
tary rule ;
Have abolished free elections;
Have fostered monopolies ;
Have given away our public
lands to corporations ;
Have built up national banks;
Have plundered us for the
benefit of bondholders;
Have destroyed State rights;
Have made bribery and cor
ruption the rule of office;
Have elected carpet-baggers
and thieves to office. v
They have paid over twenty
five million of dollars within

money as premiums to the
They have in General Grant
disgracedthe country. He and
his kin in office are treating the
United States as a private farm
to draw their support from.
Tho Grants and their sup
porters consider the people as
"hewers of wood and drawers
of water' for their benefit.
They want to retain their fat
places and cry out, "let us have
peace,'' but we say, "let us have
a chango."i
The Game of the Bayonet.
Sooner than we expected has
the Bayonet "Rule Ball opened.
We supposed that common
prudence would dictate that the
f i ' ii
bayonets would ue Kepi in me
back-ground until the Presi
dential election, or to within a
, ....
few months ot that ordeal, but
wewresimply mistaken.
The Itadical ceutral commit
tee of Louisiana called a con
vention of niggers, carpet-baggers
and scal-a-Wags to meet in
the city of New Orleans on the
9th inst., for the purpose of
nominating candidates tor Gov
ernor, Lt. Governor and other
State officers, and to appoint
delegates to the presidential
convention etc. The conven
tion was called to meet in the
U. S. Custom House. Early
in tho morning a regiment,
more or less, of United States
troops marched into the house,
stacked their arms and posted
their sentinels at all the doors
and windows to guard the in
srrcss to the house. These
troops were furnished by a lit
tie tool of Grant's by the name
of Reynolds. At the hour for
the meeting of the "black spir
its and the white," Henry C.
Warmoutb, a thief and usur
per, followed by some eighty
of his tools, headed by a Pinch-
back nigger, repaired to the
Custom House to take part in
the proceedings of the conven
tion, but the Federal , soldiers
met them an the door, presen
ted their bristling bayonets and
informed them that they could
not "come m. VVarmouth
(the ostensible Governor of the
State) became highly incensed
at this rebufl, mounted an im
provised rostrum and harrang
ued his followers in language
neither chaste nor compliment
ary to Grant and his Federal
tools. The nigger Pinch back
caught tho contagion and ora
ted heftily in favor of any kind
of despotic government in pref
erence to such a Republic as
we have under the Grant dy
nasty. We believe the nig
ger's head was eminently level
on that proposition ; but all
their rant and fustian availed
them not a whit, for there stood
Uncle Sam's bull dogs as inex
orable as fate, refusing to do
aught but their, master's bidding.
The non-plused pay
triots moved an adjournment
to another hall and Warmoutb
got into his carriage, (every
nail, screw, piece and parcel of
which he had stolen from the
people of the State) nnd his

"We hail this appropriate
service of tho niggers, as a har
binger of better days for the
white people of the South. We
incline to think the niggers of
New Orleans make far better
beasts of burden than they do
voters, governors, etc. But we
digress. The Grant office hold-
headed by Oscar Dunn
(formerly a barber and boot
black on a steamboat, now Lt.
Governor of Louisiana, whew !)
walked in the Custom House
and feared no evil from the
"Federals" therein posted. To
make a long story abort, the
convention protected by bayo
nets of Uncle Sam's soldiers,
indorsed Grant, appoiuted
Grant delegates, instructed
them to vote for Grant and ap
pointed a Grant central com
mittee, every rascal of whiJi

holder. Tho other concern
went as unfalteringly for War-

bayonet convention did for

The New Orleans Custom
House, owing to recent occur
rences, is just now the subject
of a good deal of talk, and de
velopments of a rich character
are coming oat. Casey, tho
Collector, who brought Feder
al bayonets to bear on the anti
Grant Republicans, is a brother-in-law
of Gen. Grant, ard a
carpet-bagger at that. Ho
was appointed Collector be
cause of his relationship, for he
has no other qualification. He
is ignorant and corrtipt. Of
course ho appointed his rela
tions ns subordinates and they
appointed their relations, and
so the stream of nepotism ran
on until it reached tho coal
hole and water closet guardi
ans. The Deputy Collector of
New Orleans the man who
provides brains for Grant's
brother-in-law according to a
recent speech by Governor
Warraouth, of Louisiana, ha
closelv imitated the President
in looking after his kith and
