The sixth annual meeting of
- the Ohio Valley Editorial Uni
on will be held in Gircleville,
on lhursday and Friday, June

' A full attendance of the
members of t he members of the
press is desired, in ordor that
the meeting may le more pleas'
and profitable.
Not a Democratic Outrage.
, The attempt of' some of the more
ignorant Administration organs to
make capital out of the lateLouisU
ana riot renders-it. necessary to
, keep the facto before the people.
: The attack on the negroes at Col
fax, was led by a Christopher C,
Nash, an Administration man, who
was duly elected Sheriff' of the Par
ish last November. He was com
missioned and recognized by Kel
logg. His right to hold the office
was disputed by a gang of negroes
under the leadership of some par
ticularly obnoxious carpet-baggers.
Thy scizod the office of the Shei in"
: and the record therein, In attempt
ing to recover possession Nash and
his party had a pitched battlo with
the resisting force and fifty or six
ty negroes were slaughtered. We
want to impress these facts on the
minds of every reader, for we un
derstand the tactics of the opposi
tion. When sufficient time has
1 elapsed for the exact circumstan
ces to be forgotten, the orgaus will
revive the story of the " Louisiana
Massacre " and distort it to suit
their own partisan ends.
The editors of Ohio are to
moet at Columbus on May
22nd to deliberate on the recent
changes in the postal laws, regard
ing exchanges and the circulation
of papers within the county where
published. There is a general in
dignatiou at the fight which Con
gress has made on the newspa
pers, and if we are not greatly mis
taken a correction of some of these
things will be forced upon the next
Congress at a very early hour in
its existence. Of course it was the
privilege to stop the free exchange
of newspapers because the news-
papers suggested thai it was not ex
actly just to the tax-payers for Con
gressmen to seud tons upon tons of
matter through the mails free, but
tliey will find it n kind of revenge
that isn t so BwovLPomeroy's

A bill was passed by the late
Legislature which provides for a spe
cial disbursment from the county
treasury of funds collected for
school purposes. The Auditors of
the respective counties, instead of
waiting for" their full settlement
with the Treasurers in August and
February, are empowered to draw
on the County Treasurers in De
cember and June annually, for an
advance payment of sixty per cent,
on all sums that have been levied
for the use of schools, cities, town
ships, dec, By this process the
money is promptly returned into
the hands of the people instead of
keeping it needlessly in tho hands
of the' Treasurers " for several
'months after it has been collected.
Tho only wonder is that this new
law was not passed long ago.
A Good Law. One of the best
laws passed by tho recent Legisla
ture, was one to punish the obtain:
Ing of money or property under
false pretenses with imprisonment
In the . Peuitentiary when the
amount is $33, and with fine and
imprisomeut in the county jail
when tho amount is less; the pen
alties to apply when persons under
false pretenses procure signatures
to notes, drafts, etc., Tho necessity
of this law seemed to spring from
tho many fraudulent transactions
of persons who travel the country
obtaining from farmers and others
what are understood to be ordors,
but which are printed or written
in a way that make them notes of

Administration Extravgance.
The Administration has forfaited
the confidence of the peoplo iu the
essentials of good government. It
is fearfully, recklessly extravagant,
and is mounting up expenditure at
a startling rate. The increased ap
propriations alone this year would
have sufficed for the support of gov
eminent un entire year in former
periods of its existence. And in
the seven years sinco tho war more
money has been expended, exclus
ive of war legacies, than during the
entire seventy years preceding the
war. And it is here, that the re
marks of tho JluJ'alo Courier are
seen to bo very forcible, Convince
the people that this reckless prod
igality will be terminated, and the
Administration will find itself with
out support, Tho civil service ftf
the nation is filled with men who
are growing fat on the substance of
the people, and they must be eject
ed from place, and rigorous reforms
inaugurated by true mcu.
In Louisiana the usurpers, first
by legal chicanery and then by open
violence, seize ,upan the Executive
office and Legislature. Then the
Governor so chosen calls upon the
President to aid him, and the latter
does so upon tho pretext that it is
provided iu the Constitution that
that the United States shall protect
any Stftto in tho Union on applica
tion of either the Executive or Leg
islature against domestic violence.
Isn't that a funuy way of going
around Robiu Hood's barn? It Is
like a man stealing another man's
pocket-book, and then when he
makes an outcry about it having the
police seize him and lock him up on
the ground that he is a disturber of
the peace. Kellogg and his crew
are public robbers, and the Presi
dent is their backer.
Mexican Soldiers' Convention.
The soldiers who served in tho
war against Mexico propose hold
ing a National Convention in Wash
ington City, Janunry 15, 1871, to
prepare a memorial to Congress for
pensions to the survivors of the
Mexican war, at the same rate al
lowed to the soldiers and sailors of
the war of 1812; also to adopt meas
ures looking to a National Brother
hood of the survivors, and a gener
al assemblage on the occasion of
the centennial of tho Anniversary
of tho Nation's Birthday at Phila
delphia, July 4, 1876. - :
The Vnrner House, the purchase
of which by Messrs. Kelly and
Coates, we mentioned last' week.
nas been leased by Messrs. I Yen
dergast & Jennings, of the Biggs
House, for the term of five years.
They will take possession in a few
days, and it will bo known thereaf
ter us the "Massie House." The
lessees are the widely known pro
prietors of the Biggs House, which
they will continue to control, and
their well established reputation
will furnish a guarantee that both
houses under their management
will be well regulated and popular
with the public. Portsmouth
Throughout the South generally,
there seems to be an expectation
that tho incoming cotton crop will
be the most valuable ever raised in
the United States. The Montgom
ery Advertiser thinks that the
money paid for it will not fall short
of $330,000,000. Of this sum $35,
000,000 have gone to the specula
tors and first purchasers, leaving
$295,000,000 to the producers. Al
abama's share of this magnificent
sum is nearly $35,000,000, estima
ting her crop at 400,000 bales.
It is understood that Chief Jus
tice Chase was worth, at the time
of his death, from $150,000 to $200,
000. In his will, made about two
years ago, he bequeathed a consid
erable sum to Dartmouth College,
and the University for colored peo
ple nt Worthington, Ohio. It is not
known, however, whether the terms
of this will have been changed by
later codicils.

The CnuTES fok Fish. Why do
not our citizens along the water
courses, in this county, as well as
others, petition the Commissioners
to carry into effect the statute for
the passage, of fish, at the dams
which now almost prevent them?
The law passed by tho Legislature,
January 31st, 1872, ami took effect
one year afterwards Hence It has
been in operation two years on the
31st day of this last January, but
we hear of no proceedings to carry
its provisions into effect. It is en
acted that " the Commissioners of
any county in this State in which a
dam may be situated, when the
owner or owners, or occupant, neg
lect to refuse to construct a chute
or passage way for fish, to proceed
on a notice in writing to them from
any five freeholders of the county,
to let tho making of it to the lowest
bidder and charge it to the owner
or occupant," If the people would
have the streams, once more filled
with fish, as in days passed, let
them take immediate steps to car
ry this law into effect. No notice
to tho owner or occupant is requir
ed. It would appear to the common
mind that if the government can
afford to purchase tons of paste
board of an expensive quality,
print it handsomely and send it all
over tho country In form of cards
which it sells for one cent each, and
also carries these cards in the mail
free of charge; that it could as well
afford to carry an ordinary letter
for what it sells a card for, when
the writer supplies his own paper
on which to write it and tho envel
ope in which it -is inserted. It
really does look a good deal as if
the Post Office department did not
exactly know what it wus about,
when it resorts to such a singular
method of increasing its revenues.
Another Great Fire in Bos

loss is over three million of dol

system of fire protection in the
crowded cities, or there wiU he

Cost of Living in Tennessee.
There are few places where
the cost of living is so small as
in Tennessee. In the country
most kinds of provisions are
very abundant and low in price,
beef and mutton can be bought
for from 4 to 6 cents a pound :

pound; butter for from 12 to. 16
cents a pouud, and wajs fur

chickens are sold for from 15
to tweuty-five cents each, and
all varieties of poultry are to be
bought at a correspondingly
low figure. There is also an
abundance of fish and game in
most places. Of natural fruits,
such as whortleberries, black
berries, etc., the amount is lit
eraily exhaustless, while for
size and flavor they are unsur

In tho cities the costs is com

even there it is quite moderate.
Indeed there are few States in
which the means of living can
be obtained at so small a cost,
while the conditions of life are
usually of the most favorble
character. These will bo treat

The Duty of the People.
The evils of which the Democ
racy forewarned the country
have come speedily. There is
but one remedy. The intelli

races must unite against tho

recognize secured' rights, to
protect and educate the colore.
race, but not to submit to the
worst elements of that race, is
a duty the whites owe to them
selves, and intelligent blacks
owe their peobleas well as the
country. A State or nation's
government which submits ko
unreasonable exactions for the
sake of a corrupt vote is un
worthy of respect. ..
