Our readers will recollect that we
published in the Democrat of Septem
ber 20ll following charges against D.
D. T. Ha no, viz:
lit We charge that Mr- Hard, since
the 13 lb of July (Chase) Convention, has
repeatedly said that he wag a Democrat
of the Old School, anl in the most sol
emn manner aujiounctdhis det-rn inalion
to rote for and support the whole Dem
ocutic State ticket.
Sod We charge that since the 6aid
IJth of July Con veil li on he has denoon
red lb Republican (Chase) ticket -and
platform as rotten and corupt and uo
worth' of the support of the people of
tbt State of Ohio.
3rd We charge tha t Mr. Hard -af er
admitting to certain' persons that he
last fall joined the Know Nothing Order;
as be eaitl.for the purposes of preventing
it form injuring the Democratic party and
finally bak it up since the 13th July
disclaimed any connection with the Or
der since last falt.and deneaticed-Know
Notbinjjiso in thS severest terms, and
called upon God to witness - that from
that tim heuceforth he was firmly and
nafiinchingly attached to the Deroucfa
tic qpaity and its principles.
ih We charge that during the same
period this D. D. T, Hard de-nied:o oth
rs that lie had evei had any connection
with the Know Nothing Order or auy
ascret political society whatever.
- 5th We cliargt that during the same
period, end previous to the meeting of
the Democratic Convention on 25th of
August last at Harnden. Mr. Hard, as a
professed friends of E. F. Bingham, ad
vised and counselled his nomin.tion by
that courentiou and after Mr . Binhg
hara.s nomination be expressed himsell

It should be remembered that this

W. SWEPSTON, J. P. Freemen Rally!----$50,000
in British Gold
sent to Abolitionists in
sent to Abolitionists in the West!!
It is now settled in our mind as a
fact, that Ohio Abolitionists have re
ceived, through the regotiations of
Chase, (jiddincs d Co., the enor
mous sum of $30,000 in British gold,
sent lo Ohio F unionists by H ale and
other Eastern agitators, lor the pprest
purpose of being expended in ilm
campaign iu order to carry Ohio is
tavor ol disunion. That this money
ins been subM-nbtd and sent here bj
Monarchists of London and Liverpool
we have not the least doubt. It
publicly charged in the New York
Herald that Monarchists are interfer
ing in our elections. 1 hat it was sent
over in the steamer "America" from
England we believe to be the truth.
It is not at all strange to us that
British should take any course to dis
sole our glorious Union, as a mattery
ot retaliation, because r great manv
ot our citizens telt a strong sympathy
lor the Russian cause.
Why is it that the British, in the
second steamer that came over from
Europe with the startling news ot
(all of Sebastopol, should thus trans
port their thousands ot dollars to
expended in the elections of, Ohio?
Is it lor any other purpose, treemen
Ohio, than to sow all the seeds of dis
cord amongst our people in their pow
er 1 here can be no doubt on this
point; i.othing would please Monarch
ists all over Europe more than the dis
solution ot our Union, nnd the conse
quent downfall ot this Republic! Will

consequently for the priuciples.ofil1

D. D. T. Hard's Position upon the
Tax Law.
.Mr. Hard said, when he accepted
the nomination and alsi at the Chase
meeting in Jackson, that he was in la
vor ol the present Tax Law as it
stand?, with the tenth section restored.
N'tw, it slmulu be .understood by all,
thnttliis 8 .lid tenth tetion pi o ides

vi and crt-tiits on hand, at the time oi
stingttie.tr pwpri, may. dedu-itheir

M" dfd" 'jT irom 8liy otl,er kind

J....U , , . .
should or could b restored, two-thirds
ot the people of Jackson and Vinton
counties could not, under its provisions,
deduct their indebtedness at all. But
it should be further understood that
this same tenth section contains a pro
viso (hat the , property ol banks and
corporations shall not be sul -ject to de
duction The Constitution of the
State of Ohio provides that the prop
erty of corporations and ot individu
als s tall be taxed equally by a uniform
rule.. . !
The question as to whether this tenth
seclion was Constitutional or not was
brought belore the highest judicial tri
bunal in our State, the Supreme Court,
in the winter of 187rTand was deci
ded by that Cobit, and very justly, to
be unconstitutional, flow, it is avery
o bviocs that an unconstitutional sec
tion or act is utterly void ana1 ot no
torce whatever, torn this were not the
case there would be no sense or propri
ety in having a Constitution at all.
Now, Mr. Hard si)s that he is in fa
vor of restoring this unconsti'utional
section, What does the man mean:
Does he mean to say that the tenth sec
tion is not unconstitutional, and that
his opinion upon this matter is supcri
or to that of the live Supreme Judges
and all of the best l.iw ers nnd Judg
es of our Slater We can hardly sup
pose him to be quite so shallow brained
es that. Does he suppose that this
tenth seclion will be any more valid
by piissing it the second time, or any
the less unconstitutional? No man of
common sense would contend for such
a thing a moment. What then does
he mean? We believe this to be the
key: Mr. Hard was in the Legisla
ture and voted for the present Tax Law;
when he accepted the nomination he
thought he must find a little fault with
the law and so he raises a war witli
the Supreme Court and the Constitu
tion in order to sneild his own vote.
ana with his customary audacity ami
presumption he supposed that he coultl
lool the people into the belief that he
was sincerely in favor ol a practical
amendment of the tax law, and theicby
catch their votes. The truth is,
however, that Mr. Hard is in favor ol
'the present tax law just as it stands,
j j,,,,,,!, 8S lhf, ot)y amendment that
ip .n.i.nct.a ..;.. it . ..
he proposes (unjust and impartial as it
i) is an imposiLile amendment one
that cannot be niade without milium
smack agun.-t the Consiiiu ion and
to the Sujireiin Court have decided.
itiesuits, then, that all the talk that
some lew ure trying to get up about
Hard being in favor of m amendment
ol the tax law is complete gammon,
nothing more nor less.
