April 24, 1872,
"l r is saii thnt a meeting of the
Knlioha! Donwcralio Committee
.wlll.lo held at. tlio residence) of A.
rlJuImont, Chairman, of tlio Com.
, . jnittco, in Now York, on the 8th. of
May. A movement is bcuiR made
ut Cincinnati lo have the National
Convention lir-M at that city.
Six Hundred Thousand Dollars
It is estimated that when
the Appropriation Bill passes
the Ohio Legislature there
will be a deficiency of funds in
in the treasury to meet the nee
cssary expenses of the State
Government of over six hun
. tired thousand dollars.
What 'Go those who voted
Radicals into office last fall
think of this sort of fmancier-
In order to meet this defi
ciency, they propose to steal
from tho Common School and
other funds. The school
children of the State must be
robbed to the same manner
that the Soldier's Relief Fund
was robbed a few years ago.
This is Radical financiering!
Instead of a decrease we are
' to have an increase of taxation.
Header, did you vote for
theso men aud these things
last fall?
The Liberals.
The Liberal Republicans
held one of the largest "and
most imposing meetings ever
convened in the city of New
York on Friday evening week
n sco. The meeting was ad
dressed by Trumbull and
Sohurz, wlio were received
with prolonged cheers from
the immense audience. The
speech of Mr. Trumbull, is a
severe- ariaigement of the ad
ministration of General Grant,
and jrives the most urgent
reasons whv the Liberals
should attend the Cincinnati
Convention, aud assist in oust
ing the corrupt administration
now in power. If the Liberal
Republicans of this county in
lend to go to that convention,
they should ho up and doing.
Tilings are working.
Tho sad news comes from
Odumhus of tho increase of
taxation. A general appropri
ation bill lias passed the IIou.se,
but in the Senate it is sleep
in". The Radical Legislature
having found it necessary to
increase the taxes,. are greatly
alarmed at the increase they
alono being responsible and
leno w they vail bo held re
sponsible for the increase.
Only one year ago these Radi
cals sought the suffrages of the
people with sacred pledges of
economy aud retrenchment.
Wonder how long the people
will be deceived by the Kadi
ml whanc-doo-leS who. shout
fur oflice under perfidious and
liypoontcal pledges. Those
. who voted the Radical ticket
last fall must pay higher taxes,
The Legislature being Radical,
no.blamo can. bo heaped on the
'.'! i "j'J-
Wis are happy to state that
there ure a very large number
of Republicans in Vinton coun
ty who are strongly opposed to
dishonest Grant, and fwor
the nomination of an honest
man, at the Cincinnati Convention,
lioth branches of the Ohio
Legislature havo adopted n
resolution to adjourn on Mon
day, April 29th. Tbo tax
payers will not be disappoint
ed by the adjournment of this
Radical body, but the increase
in taxes by this Legislature
will disappoint thcui.
The Grant Meeting in New
York City.
The worshiopers of U. S.
Grant in and for twenty-five
piles around New York City
thought it necessary to hold a
meeting in that, city, on
Wednesday night last, in the
interest of Grant. The leaders
of the meeting were the office
holders and those who expect
to get office. A' special dis
patch from New York, how
ever, speaks of the impression
made by the meeting as not
verv pleasing to all parties con.
cerned. Here is the report of
the meeting as given by' the
special reporter:
uIfc whs neither as Targe nor
spontaneous as the Liberal
meeting last week, and the
speakers are blamed by un
biased Republicans for being
too bitter toward opposition in
their ranks and too slavish in
personal allegiance to Grant.
Every post office, Custom
house and revenue official with
in twenty five miles of New
York labored to make the
meeting imposing, hut failed to
exclude some of the thinking
masses, as the fervent applause
for Greeley testified. The reso
lutions landed Grant from head
to foot in superlative praise,
and not one of the speakers had
a syllable of criticism to make.
Neither did any of them ven
ture to allude to the President's
nepotism. Among all the
Giant orators, from Beecher
down, this has been a sealed
topic. It has been discovered
that the first twenty names of
secretaries of the meeting are
all clerks in . Henry Clews'
bank. It is hinted that Clews
wants Grant re-elected in order
to double his millions, which
was the motive of the numer
ous millionaires adorning the
platform last evening."
Just one more Message.
The President lia? issued an
other Ku-Klux message,
couched in the old stereotyped
lanf-uaR, about some terrible
mare's nest or other iu a num
ber of couuties of South Caro
lina, where terrible "combina
tions," "bound tQ obedience
nnd secresy by oaths,' "effect
their objects by personal vio
lence," The message is in re
ply to a resolution of the
House, of January 25th, last,
and is expected to do a certaiu
political service in the coming
campaign, nnd pave the way,
we suppose, for a fresh declara
tion of mnrtial law, for the
coercion of voters. "We do not
believe the thread-bare dodge
can be made to work th'i3 late
day; the Ku-Klnx inglery is
too transparent tar lurther de
ception. If there is any thing
the people would like to see
placed under martial law it is
that portion of Grant's civil
service which seems to be
privileged to plunder and
swindle imperviously to both
law and public opinion.
The people of Vinton coun
ty are oppressed with taxes,
but tho Kadical Legislature
now proposes to increase tax
The Coming Earthquake.
The special Washington dis
patch to the Enquirer of the
21st ult. says:
Col. Thomas Florence, editor
of a Democrats paper here
makes the following important
political announcement to day
which we send for what it is
worth :
1. That the most formid
iable, deeply laid plan has been
developed here in regard to
the commfC contest lor Fresi
dent?, s
2. That many of the lead
ing nnd influential Conserva
tives and Republicans liave
firmly united to insure the de
feat of General Grant,.' and
have perfected arrangements
so that witlnn twelve days
meetings will be held in Bos
ton nnd elsewhere for the pur
pose of sending delegates to tho
Umcinnati Convention.
ft. That Ex-Governor Curtin
of Pennsylvania who will re
turn licre within the next two
weeks, having resigned his
mission to St. retersburcr. will
bo nominated for Vice-Presi
dent, haying becu iu training
France, through correspond
ence from the United States,
preparatory to this coming
Presidential race.
' 4. That Pennsylvania State
Senator McClure, whose elec
tion and admission to his seat
looked upon as a death blow
to General Grant's re-election,
will take the field
General Grant.
5. That the State of Penn
sylvania will, under the cir
cumstances, certainly give fifty
thousand majority against the
of General Grant.
G. That there will be but
two electoral tickets in the
field, and this result will be
thereby secured, (is the high
contracting parties have so

Mr. Garrett, President of the
Baltimore and Ohio Railroad,
remarked, nt the meeting of
the directors, ln-'ld in Balti
more on the 10th, that he hud
recently had au interesting in
terview with Sir Hugh Allan,
the chh-fi proprietor of the
Allan 1'frw of steamers now rurr
ning between Liverpool and
Baltimore. The character and
extent of the business, with
Baltimore have been very sat

offi ring largely in excess of the
capacities of the- steamers.
Within the past few weeks ar
rangements, have for the first
time been made for the proper
advertising of the, advantages
of the route to Great Britain;
and the in ward business of the
last two steamers which have
arrived have shown the valu
able effects of tliNsum mating
this information. Arrange
ments are now being perfected
by which tickets will be, placed
on Bido at o,'T00 offices in
Europe and the numerous
agencies of the Baltimore nnd
Ohio road and its Western
and Southern, connections will
furnish through tickets via the
Allan line from Baltimore- to
Liverpool also, lift aW stat
ed that; during the coming year
the- increase of equipment, will
probable be forty locomotives
nnd two- thousand cars,.
