That Republicans are going round
the county telling Democrats, that
such and such Democrats are going
to vote for Brongb, and that certain
Democrats are going to vote for John

men thus reported, and they have in
variably said tons that it Is all a lie.

"Peace with the institution of slavery is
wat with God."5i Wade's Mc Arthur
S pitch.
On last Friday Ben Wade spoke
to our poople the very words we
quote above. ' We are truly glad
that he was sent here, because when
we told the people such was the doc-
triiie of the leaders of this party, it
was honestly denied. Washington,
Jefferson, Madison, Marshall, Clay
and Taylor were all slaveholders and
by Waie were at war with God.
They were at peace with slavery, and
of caurse were at war with God.
The Constitution recognizes slavery
and requires us to surrender the slave
to his master. Washington sigaed a
law to so surrender the slave, passed
by Congress in 1795. Hence he was
at war with. God, and according to
the great lights of Abolitiondom all
these men, the fathers of the repuplic
are at this time in bell, reaping the
penalty, as Wade would say, of their
just condemnation. Fellow citizens,
is it true that we in Ohio can not
ive at peace with our follow citizens
of the South, becaiwe they hold slaves,
without being at war with God.
Ben Wade, Lincoln. Chase and all
these leaders of this Abolition izod
party so say to you. Are you ready
to receive this as your doctrine! If
you are we can say to you that we be
lieve tnero is .not a single man now

war we are engaged in. We have
every confidence in the people that
they will see to it in tirab that the
Constitution au laws are maintained
and defended at all hazards. This
will bring us peace, prosperity aud
security 01 persons and property.
. Look Oct fo Lies. It is the
boaet of some leading Republicans
that they have reports to circulate
just before the election, that will lay
your candidates on the shelf, aud
will effectually defeat us. Yon should
recollect that all these lies are got up
at a time it is impossible to see the
people and contradict them. You
have known your candidates for
years, lbeir words and acts hereto
fore is what you should judge men
by, not tales concocted at a tima when
they can not be contradicted. Believe
none of them for tbey could, if true,
nave puDiiuueu tneui long ago.
Ben. Wade, in bis speech at Pome
roy, said that Val. moved in Con
gresi to' vacate the' seats of Coktis of
Iowa, and Blajb, of Missouri, becauie
they wert in tit Union army. Wade
knew he was a Liar, a Scoundrel and
Coward, as Val. declared him, when
he made the above assertion, j
Our Meeting.
The Republican readers of the
Gazette of Cincinnati, will notice the
lies of our meeting on last Monday,
from these lies you caa all gaess how
the same paper .deceives you in re
gard to its army and other news. It
says Vinton is safe for Bkouqii, that
our meeting was 5 or 600, that the
masses were not out, that the thing
was a failure, that Wade's speech
converted the Democracy to Brongh-
ism sc lou know all this is false,
but about as true as you generally
get from that lying shoot. It should
have said you were all conveited by
Wade's speech in favor of niggers

Our Meeting. A Glorious Success.
Thousands of People in Council
Hundreds of Wagons and Other Vehicles
in Procession.
The largest Mass Mooting ever
held in Vinton, was our Mass Meet
ing on last Moudsy. At an early
hour our town waslivoly with people,
and the day was bright, clear and
pleasant. At 11 A. M. the WeBtcrn
Delegation moved in and along the
South aide of town on Mill Streot.
This delegation was counted before it
moved a short time aud numbered
1,400 persons. The prominent fea
tures of this delegation was a large
and Mradidly decorated wagon,
drove by Mr.- A. Arganbright, six
horses, containing 21 Ladies dreBsed
in white with Red, White and Blue
Scarfs, with Val and Pugh on them.
Their main motto was, "Give us Lib
erty or Give us Death-" The ladies
sang a number of onr campaign songs.
These ladies were all from LlarrisoQ.i
Eagle and Richland except two from
Londonderry. The next .great at
traction of tbia delegation wai a large
Ox Team with one of Lincoln's Bas
tiles on it, one man chained and in a
prison on the rear looking through
the bars, Jemanding a spuedy trial
by a Jury of his own fellow citizens;
proclaiming bis innocence. lie was
bound and under guard. Above his
prison was the words, "Bound for
Fort Warren;" On the sides of the
Bastile were tnese words, "A peace
with slavery is war with God. Ben.
Wadt s McArtkur ifpeecn. a Lie."
Above the prisoner the words, "Ha
beas Corpus suspended.'1 So the
prisoner could not be released, lie
was a victim ot tuis Administration,
in example.
At the couth side of town the Sou
thern delegation joined in the Proces-
sion. luey claimed to oe tne largest;
the greatest attraction ot this delega
tion was a large wagon decorated al-,
so, with evergreen, with a canopy
Red White and 131 ae, witn di Ladies,
dressed in Scarfs Val and Pugh;
drawn by 34 horses, each horse hav
ing a volet on With Rod White and
Blue Scarf, with Val and Pugh ou
his hat. Mottoes on wagon were
"Vallandigham aajugh " "Fathers
and Jdrotuers protect us Jrotn negro
equality." 1 bis procession was join
ed ou the East end of town on Locust
street by the Eastern delegation, ex
tending out ot 6igut ot us. lue pro
cession passed up Locust to North, tip
JNortu to Market and tnere was joined
by the Northern Delegation; down
Market to High, np High and across
to Main, and down Mam nutil it
had to stop, for a way to be made so
as to get out of town to the Grove
before either the EaBtero or Northern
Delegation could move into line.
there were about 400 wagons and oth
er vehicles. All sorts - of mottoes
were seen in the procession, such as
4 State Rights," "State Sovereignty,"
"Equal Rights and Equal Privileges
to all citizens," "lne Uoustitution
mnst and shall be preserved." Hick
ory and Butternut trees and bushes
were fully represented. At 12 M.
lue procession readied tne grove
where we wore surprised by a beau
tiful arch in front of the Speakers
Stand, of Evergreens, and on a white
base "Vallandigham and Pugh;"
surrounded witn turee circles, em
blematic of the Faith, Hope and Char
. a .s T . .t
ity oi me democracy; raitu ;n our
principles, Hope of the success of our
pnuciples, and tJnarity towards those
who oppose the great truths ci Da
mocracy. These - circles contaiued
'Free Speech," "Free Press," -'Liberty
and Union;" all the letters and
bordor were made ofevergieen, and
the design of Miss J. Leine, and
were a complete success.
The crowd was variously estimated
at from 6,000 to 10,000, perhaps two
thirds votets. The people gathered
around the stand, and on- motion of
O.T. Gunning, Esq., the following
otneers were chosen:
F A. Bbatton, v President.
John nughn,
Laban Sampson,
D. Y. Benjamiu,
Alex. Clay pool,
J. D. Wilkinson,
John Claik,
Henry Dyo,
John Booth,
A. Wells,
Samuul Magee,
David Foreman,'
B. ierrell,
The meeting took a recess of one
hour for dinner, when the meeting
was called to order and Col. Groom
addressed the people for near two
hours, ro an able and eloquent speech
comparing the past situation ol our
country with the present, and show
ing up in a clear and lucid oiauner
the acts of tyranny, extravagance
aud corruption of the present Admui
istraiuMi of our Natiooal and State
affairs. His speech was a lelliag
one for the cause in Vinton. '
Hon- Geo. E. Puaa on being in
trodne.;d was received with three
hearty cheers, such as the Democracy
of Vintou know how to give. When
silenco was obtained be proceeded to
deliver one of the must eloquent ap
peals to people who pretend to have
one spark ot patriotism to rally iu
defense of the Constitution and laws,
to protect us all from that anarchy
and despotism to which we are so
fast hastening, we ever beard or read.
His description of the arrest, mock
military trial and banishment of Val
landigham, brought the tears to many
eyes in his audience, his remarks iu
regard to the threats of John Broagh
of civil war in Ohio, if iu the event of
Yal'e election, the people should de
mand his return, received a hearty
responso from the thousands in atten
dance. His speech was argumenta
tive aud exhibited true statesmanship
sad truths. At the close our next
Lieut. -Governor received throo hearty
cheers when the moating adjourned.
Ip the evening there was a perfect
jam in the Court House, which was
rwsed by aon h c. limanku,
in ah able, argumentative speech, and
closed by Col. Gboom in another of
his happiest efforts, to rally tne true
friends of Uuion to the redemption
of rights as a free people, when this
meeting adjourned aoout 11 o'clock
P. M. Altogether, it was a glorious
day for the Democracy; it opened
ricb and closed iu character. .
Republican Meeting.
On last Friday the Republicans
had a very good turn out, about 1,500
men, women, and children. On a
close inspection of the crowd at the
stand we estimated the tiumber of
voters present at about 500, and found
agree; many of them were true Val-
landighamors. Ben Wade was the
big gun and he belched forth the true
Abolition doctrine. He said he now
had nothing to disguise. "That we
are in a war against slavery, that he
wis a radical, and he thanked God
for it, that peace with the institution
oi slavery ij a war against God; that
Vaiiandiguam was a traitor; mai ue
was tried by a Democratic Judge and
a Democratic Jury, and that he could
not say a word against his trial; that
the Democratic papers lied, sc."
There was perhaps not a man on the
ground but knew be was lying on
these points.
Ben was followed by the moBt con
summate Liat we ever heard, by the
Dame of Hdtchins being the same
man that Vallandigham published as
a liar, scoundrel and coward, about
two years ago, when he first publish
ed the lie he told to us in his speech
of Friddv last, to wit: That Vallan
digham had said in Congress, "that
an army from the North, before it
should march South, should pass over
his dead body. Val denied this
and published Hutchins as we have
stated, and now after they have, for
political purposes, banished val, this
man proves hunselt a scoundrel by
retailing this refuted slander over the
State. This same man laid that Val
wanted to dissolve the Union in four
parts, knowing that he lied at the
time. We hope the Republicans will
give us some more speakers of the
same stripe in Vinton.
