Scared and Desperate.
. The Radical Ring of McAr
thur (no country Republican
cares a straw) are getting ter
ribly scared and desperate over
their miserable prospects in
Vinton county. As a conse
quence some of them are as
cross and touchy as Grant's
pups.- They snarl at every
Greeley man tbey meet who
does not please them. They
devote considerable time to
snapping at the McArthur En
quirer. Their filthy organ, is
sued by a carpet-bagger from a
city, devotes the most of its col
umns to foul personal attacks
on the candidates on the Dem
ocratic and Liberal Republi
can tickets, and whines and
cries like a' sick kitten. How
badly this Ring must feel.
The slang they print and the
lies tbey create about candi
dates will have no effect what
ever. Let the slang-whangers
continue right along in the
same manner in which they
started out. Let them pitch
in. This mode of warfare will
soon change.
The Meeting at Jackson
The meeting of the Liberate
and Democrats at Jackson, of
which we spoke last week, was
a splendid attair. An ox, fur
nished by our good old friend
William Radcliffe, of Milton
township, was roasted, and a
grand dinner set before the
more than five thousand peo
ple who were present. A
number were present Irom
Vinton county. Among those
who assembled to bear the
speeches was a delegation of
colored voters, numbering thir
ty, from Jackson township, in
that county. Gen. Thomas
Ewing delivered one of the
best speeches we ever read.
It appeared in full in the Dai
ly Enquirer of September 2d.
lion. u. J. Callen ot Mercer
county, and Samuel A. Nash,
the Liberal Republican and
Democratic Candidate for Con-
ess iu this district, made
speeches in the evening.
V7r should like to see a polltloal
campaign carried through on prin

cleville Herald.
That is what we should like
to see, but no Radical . editor
attempts to do anything of the
kind. , "Principles of truth
and decency" are entirely un
known to them. Let the edi
tors of the Herald set a good
example and perhaps gome of
the "narrow-minded block
heads who "act in the most
unscrupulous way without even
realizing that they are guilty
of immorality and are degra
ding themselves,'' will no Ton
ger "resort to base means for
securing their ends." , The
Herald should be guided by
the New York Tribune, It is
a cood cruide for all "narrow-
minded blockheads" supporting
tne pup ana norse Administra
tion. .

Let the Little Radical Ring of McArthur
The "Narrow-minded Blockheads." who

to suit Themselves can see what Honest
Horace Greeley Thinks of Them.
Horace Greeley has written many good things,
but none surpass, we think none equal in spirit
and vigor, the letter in which he replied to the
New York Union club that threatened him with
expulsion, when be and Gerrltt Smith and oth
ers signed the Jefferson Davis bail bond. This
was not the letter of politician or a nominee
for office. It was written five years ago. The
date of it is May S3, 1867. But it anticipates and
fully warrants the attitude of Horace Grooley,
now on the platform of Cincinnati and Balti
more. After referring to declarations consist'
ent with it, the letter thus concludes, with a
prophecy of the way in which his act would
come to bo regarded a prophecy already ful-

West Virginia Election.
An election was held, in
West Virginia on Thursday,
August 22d, for State officers
and for the adoption or reject
ion of a new Constitution.
There were two candidates in
the field for Governor. . Cam
den was the regular uominee
of the Democracy, and Gov.
Jacobs, the present Democrat
ic Governor of the btf.te, . wuo
failed to receive the nomina
tion, ran independent against
Camden. The latest news
from the election i9 a dispatch
from Charleston, W. Va., da
ted September 1st. The dis
patch says :
"Governor Jacob s election,
heretofore disputed by Cam
den, is now conceded by all,
His majority will be about one
thousand. The constitution is
ratified by three thousand to
four thousand majority.
Governor Jacob has been
asked his postlon In the Presi
dential canvass. Away goe9
the idea of his support of
Grant He is for Greeley and
accuses his political opponents
in the late canvass of having
caused the misunderstanding
of his true statements. A full
interview is to bo had with
him to-morrow, when his en
tire views will be forthcoming.
Democrats who supported
Jacob, and Liberal Republi
cans who did the same, will
take steps early this week to
organize a Greeley Club.
Thus the campaign In West
Virginia, under glorious auspi
ces, is nobly begun."

of an important political cam
