Thursday Bsc. 2. 1375. The thermometer stood at eleven degrees below zero at Sioux City on Sunday night last. Ugh ! Phii-lin Ross was found nyain last week, this time in Connecticut. He disappeared soon, however. We hope Henry Wilson will soon be buried. Inere seems to be no Jet ud to his f moral naneevrics. The Chicago Times has a head line, "Jerked to Jesus,'' in its ac - count of the several hangings of last week. Oh! that wicked city! Four fatal cases of "rope perfor mance" took place last week. Two in Monroe, La., and two in the town of Sardis, Miss.; all colored. Ten Physicians have seats in the Ohio Legislature this winter. That ought to doctor all the legislation and the small pox too. . . . The thir 1 term spook has materi alized at last and sits like a night mare on the breasts of various Pre sidential candidates. Chief Justice Waite refuses to al low his name toe used in connec tion with the Presidency in 1875. He'll waite. There are thirty-five Farmers in the Ohio Assembly this year. Now gentlemen, let us see what you will do for the "bone and sinew" of the country. . ..

The pulpit and pew cushions one of the Presbyterian churches Chicago have been seized by the pas tor for back salary. . The members of that institution are evidently op posed to "back pay." Work at the Medina Foundry has eea- suspended on account of the . financial embarrassment cf the firm. They probably haven't heard Hayes' election. There must be "too much money" up in Paulding county, as it takes page and a half of the Antwerp Ga zttte to publish the list ef forfeited lands. No gold or silverjingles around us yet, although Hayes has been elect ed Governor more than six weeks. Even "rag babies" are getting scarcer. t Grant's prospects for a third term are brightening. We are informed the Government office-holding editor of the Eaton Register will soon de clare for hira. Hold your noses! Tennessee has an empty treasury and is in distress on account of If the present things proceed many years more there will be a treasury of more importance than that of Ten nessee that will be found empty.

Portsmouth, has five National Banks with a capital of nine hundred and .fifty thousand dollars, and yet business housss in that city fail for want of the "circulating medium." ' Tfle Chicago Inter-Ocean, (Rep.) says: "The truth is that the returns from Ohio indicate as a rule, that the Republicans gained in those counties where ignorance has been most strongly developed." Preble county ain't in that list. .'There is one way and oulyone, by which to escape taxation; and that is to put your money in bonds and then swear you are "toil," but so long as yon raise corn and pota toes for a living, you must pay the fiddler while the bondholders dance. Ground was broken on the 20th tilt., on the Springfield, Jackson and Pomroy railroad. The ceremonies were attended by about one thousand people and opened with prayer. No doubt the Lord will feel under many obligations on this account, and see that this road goes on iiotwithstand ing radical contraction. ' The Eaton Register says it gave the returns of the elections one week before the Democrat. So you did, but let some enterprising patron your paper compare your returns with the official results, and he will see how correctly he is posted, if has not read the Democrat or some other reliable journal. --.-J- WHAT EXPERIENCE OUGHT TO TEACH. of of of a it. Many of otir readers will recollect the memorable contest of 1840, which ended in placing Harrison in the Presidential chair, and ousting the democrats who, for a lftng succession of years, had possession of the gov ernment. At tliis time, it is true. politics had not become so corrupt nor had corruption in politics been reduced to a science as at the pres ent time. Yet under the strong dis cipline of Jackson, and the skillful manipulations of Van Buren, assist ed by a large number of the ablest minds the country has ever produc ed, both in and out of Congress, it seemed almost impossible that, the democratic party could be d:splaced from power. The opposition then, was the Whig party, who were not only in the minority in almost every State in the Union, but repeated de feats had disheartened and discour aged the rank and file of the party. And, although with every returning campaign they contested the ground manfully, yet their leaders had but little hope of success. About this time, whether through Democratic mismanagement or not, the country was passing through a money strin gency tiiat crippled and prostrated the business interests of the nation to an extent never before experienc ed, and which created distrust and doubt as to the future. The people felt that somebody was responsible, and the old Whig leaders were quick to discern the position of things, and to make the most of their opportuni ty. They told the people that the Democratic party had exclusive con trol of the government for a long time; they charged that party with reckless expenditures of the public monies; with devising new and ill digested schemes of finance, and with making large and uncalled for appropriations. Democrats alone are responsible- for the mischief; now pnt them ont: - These were the ar guments that were used bv the old Whig leaders, and before them the Democratic mnjorjtiesifUat day melted away like seow when expos ed to the rays of the Summer's sun. Now in order to profit by some of the lessons which the wisdom, or rather cunning of these old Whig leaders would seem to teach, it is if ell for us to remember that they did not go before the people with set of resolves prepared in advance for rescuing the country from the d.fficulties that seemed to beset it But they merely told the people who were responsible, and asked them put them out of position first, and then they would administer to the patient. If the Democratic leaders will recall some of these lessons which should neveFTiave Been for gotten, they will see, at a glance, the opportunity that is now offered them; an opportunity far superior to that which the old Whig leaders made available in their day, and which car ried them through to a successful is sue, in a campaign the most brilliant in the history of political parties. For fifteen years the Republican par ty have had unlimited control of ev ery department of the government. During this time fraud, corruption and rascality of every kind and de gree have attained a power never be fore reached. Influences are at work to-day which, if not checked, must ultimately end in national disgrace, bankruptcy and ruin. The Republi cans must shoulder these responsi bilities; they are the party in power. The patient has become sick while under their care. Let Democrats say to the people, dismiss your phy sicians so long in charge. Until then, we have no remedy to propose; we do not intend to subject our man ner of treatment to your hostile crit icism; time enough to enter into particulars when the patient is plac ed under oiir care. Let our platform for the great Centennial year be on the simple issue of reform! Reform, that will be real and genuine; that will not only be a check upon these streams of corruption that now del uge the land.; but that will dry them up - effectually. This will form platform upon which every well wisher of his country can stand. Let the rallying cry be, not so mu h par ty as country ; not so much men principle; making this the line our deft n?:, we will be victorious. of he The report of the failure of the crops throughout the Empire of Rus sia is fully confirmed, and it will re quire an immense quantity of grain to supply food for the millions people who are left without bread la this calamity. America is the only country that can supply the demand. A Howard county, Ind. man was swindled out of $3000 by a couple sharpers that persuaded him a large amount ot treasure was on his farm. He had prepared thirty two bushel sacks for the gold. He must have been a radical bullionist. The latest accounts reveal the fact that there will be 24 contested seats in Congress, nine of which are occu pied by Democrats and 15 by Re publicans. Lively times ahead. It is remarkable that the Demo cratic votes for Governor in Ohio and Pennsylvania at the late elections, numbered almost the same. Thus, Allen received 202,204, and Pershing 292,145 a difference of onlv 119. AN IMPORTANT DUTY. a Oue of the most important auxil iaries in the dissemination of Demo cratic sentiments is the local Demo cratic paper. It is not only natural, but we are morally required in poli ties asan every thing else, when we are satisfied that our sentiments arc riyht to endeavor to impress the truth ofonrown convictions upon our neighbors. We may do this, reasoning with them by their own actions, and in almost numberless ways. When we neglect any means in our power to convert them to our views, we neglect the performance of a duty. We are all in some measu.e "our brother's keeper," and to some extent, responsible for his condition. The truth of this, all must admit, and yet how wofully this duty is neglected by Democrats in this coun ty. We have men whose eonvietions are strong, that their political opin ions . are right, and yet they never mal.- nn attempt ' to enlighten or strengthen their neighbors. They never make an attempt to dissemi nate correct Democratic principles, by the circulation of democratic nnwsnantrs. Thev sad!y neglect -. -A r - - - their duty in this respect Every Democrat in Preble county is just as much interested politically, in in creasing the circulation of the Deii ocrat as we are, and yet how many there are who never have asked a neighbor even to read it, much less to subscribe for it. If we did not believe it was to the interest of the party to have it published, we would never issue another number. If you, reader, desire to see it published; if you believe that the interests of the party are promoted by having it reg ularly issued, then manifest your be lief by some kind of works. If the distribution of five hundred copies iS beneficial, would not fifteen hundred or two thousand be more so? and the nnW re.i! on that we have not two thousand subscribers is, that you have not as a good Democrat, done 3'our duty in this respect. Our sub scriptiou list can easily be increased Xn lnuhLa its lircsoftt number, ifeacli subscriber would make a little effort Lisht and information are all that is necessary to effect a political revo lution. . ' - - We have an important Presidential campaign iust ahead of us. If the rwonle are riffhtlv informed we will 1 L triumph. To give them that inform ation. Democratic papers must be circulated. Then let every Demo crat who loves his principles and par ty, go to work and procure new sub scribers. Don't wait for your neigh bors to do it, but see to it yourself, and send us the names and we will forward the paper. as of of of - No one can read the developments brought to light by the investiga tion into the whisky frauds without being impressed with the belief that Grant and his kindred, who are so refreshingly intermingled with the various offices of this government are directly interested in and con nected with the entire system of fraud and corruption. The follow ing, is from the St. Louis Weslich Post. The Washington telegrams, writ ten in cypher, which are before the srrand iurv. warning the distillers of this city of their imminent danger, are based upon and derived from knowledge which at that time but two persons possessed. Only Bris tow and Grant knew of the steps that were being taken, and as we know that t .ese signals of warning were not given by Bristow, they could have only come from Grant, or one in his confidence. The whole country, therefore, points already, to the notorious Babcock, Grant's body villian, false measurer, and swindler in general, as well as the head of all the corrupt scoundrels and newspapers in 1872 in particular. or whom, to use a familiar legal phrase, '-such a misdeed is to be ex pected." It may be that the Republican papers and speakers can explain this all awav and establish Graxt'sJ innocence. If they do, they cer tainly ought to attempt a second creation of a universe. The editor of the Eaton Register c"hn take the stand. Some of our papers are calling loudly for a registry system for elec tions in Ohio. The Baltimore Amer ican thus speaks of the system: "No executive or judicial officer in the State wields such absolute power as the register of voters. He can disfranchise as many voters as he pleases by merely drawing his pen through their names. The citizen who is thus deprived of his vote has no notice of the proceeding until he presents himself at the polls and is told that his name does not appear on the list." No s3-stem presents as many op portunities for fraud as the registry system. The Holmes County larmier says that money being so exceedingly plenty has caused several small fail ures in Holmes county. Somehow the news of the election of IIa3'es is slow getting around among "hard up" business men. The fact that Jefferson Davis is not a citizen of Mississippi, and has not been a resident of the State for seven j-ears, will materially interfere with the plan of sending bim to the United States Senate, in accordance with the little programme telegraph ed all over the country bj- the Re publican alarmists. We make to all new subscribers to the Demockat for 1876, the following liberal offer: '. For $2.25 TILT CASH, we will send the Democrat and COLUMBUS WEEKLY DISPATCH one year. The Dispatch is a large, beautiful, thirty-six column paper, printed on clear, new type, and will contain full Legislative and Congres sional Reports, besides Miscellane ous Reading, News, &c. To ALt ocb PRESENT SUBSCRIBERS who will pay us $2,25 IN ADVANCE for 1870, we. make the same liberal offer. - If you wast cheap beadixg, ou can get it here. Your own County Paper for Home News, and the Dispatch for Congressional, Leg islative and General News. Send in' your names and the mo ney immediately, so that you may commence with the 1st of January. This offer makes the subscription price of both papers, only Two Dollan and Twentf-flvt Cent I A specimen ol the Dispatch may be seen at this office. Come on now, all you who want . . CHEAP READING! This is the most liberal newspaper offer ever made the people of Preble county. Their Home paper and the best pnpsr at the State Capital, both ONE YEAR, free of postage, for the small sum of TWO DOLLARS & TWENTY-FIVE CENTS! a The pronuncimento of President Grant's kitchen organ the W ash ingtou Chronicle that the Presi dent's nomination for a Third Term is indispensable to Republican sue cess in the Presidential election of next year, has caused beads of per sniration to stand on the editorial brow of many a Republican journ throughout the cuntiy. The Philadelphia Inquirer, a strong Republican journal, thus delivers itself on the subject:. .; ., jL'.r , The Republican party has placed itself fairly before the ountry in connection with the Third Term business, and the leading' Republi can States, among them Pennsyl vania, New York, Ohio and Massa chusetts, have, through their State Conventions, declared against the Third Term project in language so dicisivc as to render a Third Term for any President simply impossible. They have settled that question it is as dead as dead can be, and no number of kitchen organs or any other sort of organs can everTbnn. it to life again, no matter what tunes they play, or how loud hey play them, the thing is dead be yond resuscitation, and buried be vond chance of resurrection. Thanksgiving day last' Thursday was quite generally observed thro' the country, the people seeming to find some reasons for gratitude, not withstanding hsrd times and general discouragements. The origin and history of Thanksgiving day has been so often published that we will not stop to give it, only to say that it oiiginated with the pilgrim fath ers, and under circumstances that the modern American would not find inspiring him with gratitude. How ever, the first original characteristic, the religious, has in a great measure disappeared, and probably will en tirely in a few more years.. ."Well, we can't tell what mayhap pen," says the President, when ask ed about third term prospects; . He is right once more ; we can't tell ; We may have a foreign war; w$ may run up the national debt another thou sand millions; we may lie forced a new expansion of the currency; we may see gold once more at 2 50 all these things may happen; "we can tell," as the President says. And then fonr or five years from ncp we may again find ourselves where w landed in September, 1873, and where we have stuck since, with panic and a general paralysis of bu siness, "We can't tell." The south-east portion of Nebras ka wts ravaged by young grasshop pers from early spring till about the middle of June this year, but cors plenty there at. 25 cents per bushel and potatoes, cabbage, squashes and all kinds of vegetables cheap and abundant, ail raised since the grass hoppers took their final departure about June 20th. Those parts the State where the grasshoppers did not hatch this year have pleutifu crops of every sort, so that there will be no need for supplies to be sent there to feed the destitute home steaders this winter. lhe Cleveland Flaiudealer sa.y we shall see some lively whipping in to the Republican kennel next sum mer. Jnst let Grant get the wires all laid and he must be a natural fool indeed who imagines that any Re publican newspaper will dare go back pn the arrangement. The part3- isn't strong enough for any such high flown independence. . Whoever gets hold of the helm will be bos of ' the ship, and there is ever3' prospect now that Grant will stand at the wheel. Our Saviour once said to a 3'oung man who came to Him inquiring the way of salvation, "Sell all thou hast and give to the poor." Man3' of our latter day saints sell all that the3 have and buy Government bonds to escape taxation and keep the poor laboring incessantly to pay them their interest in gold. THAT'S THE TALK! This is the way the Vicksburg Herald talks over the Democratic victory in Mississippi: . - "Oh, let it not be said in the fu ture that our victory has been bar ren of good! Let us use the bless ings that have been granted us, that all the people of this State, of every age, 'sex, color, and race, and of every political creed shall have cause to rejoice that we have won this victory. We are now responsi ble that Mississippi pursues the path of peace and prosperity. She as again emerged from the dark ness; so let the glorious light of her redemption shed its effulgence over all the whites and blacks, that all may live in harmony, and blessed with contentment and prosperity. Then shall . we indeed have won a ictory whose glory can never fade." Amen! THE THIRD TERM MOVEMENT. Some Republican journals which deprecate the Third Term Move ment, assert that it is simply a Democratic device ' to alarm the people, and that President Grant can not be nominated for a Third Term in a Republican National Convention. That remains to be seen. "W. J. V." in a recent letter from Washington City to the Cin cinnati Commercial, writes: "Speaking of the third term re minds me t-at I have heard more of it, and more expressions in favor of t during this week than ever betore. I am beginning to believe that all the sentiment in favor of a third term is not, after all, going about under General Grant's hat. Brother-in-law Casey has been particularly ostentatious in declaring that the "emergency" has arisen, and that Grant would again be compelled to be a candidate for the purpose of again saving the country." to The Chicago Times is the author ity for the statement that an organ ization has been formed among Southern men at the head of which is Col. MosBY, to promote the third term nomination of Gen. Grant; and that this purpose is to be forwarded and the nomination secured upon tne basis of an ar.ti Ctholic plat form The Times publishes what purports to be a-"confidential circu lar," as follows : Nationality No Bar to Member ship.

"Only" $1,200,000, according official figures, was the loss of Gov ernment by the stealings of the St. Lpuis Whisky Ring, composed the most '-honest" and "respectable" Republicans of the city. The Ring was in existence five years before was discovered, everything was cov ered up so nicely. 'Rah for Grant. H.II The Evansville Courier makes the sharp point that there is no more sense in talking about the hard-mo ney traditions of the Democratic party than the slavery traditions. we are to live on traditions, let us set aboi.t restoring the good old da3-s negro walloping. The Louisiana Pinckback turns up once more as a claimant to his seat in the United States Senate; and urges his - admission on the grounds that if he is not admitted his State will send a Democratic Senator in his stead. Very good; the country can stand such an infliction without raising the price of mourning crape. .The N. Y. World speaks of John Sherman's "set up" interview in the Commercial, on the subject of re sumption, as a "sham." The finan cial Senator ought to get himself in terviewed once more in order to ex plain what ho never said. As a fi nancier, the public has come to look upon Sherman as simplj- a preten tious humbug. OUR GROWTH IN POPULATION. There is one element of wealth, one agency in recover from prostration possessed by this country, which we are apt to forget when misfortune overtakes us; we mean immigration. If we did not have this unfailing fountain to draw fresh supplies of life and vigor from, our recovery from" such depressions a3 that now prevailing would be comparatively slow; if we were exporters, instead of importers of able-bodied men, the case would be still worse. Able-J bodied men and women-are the most valuable of all imports that can be brought to the shores of a new cotin- try and they possess oue feature that other imports do not; the3'Cost nothing. Ihirty tons of .bnglish rails purchased for a railroad h. this country would cost probably $1,000 in England; and the expense of get ting them to a Western State would be $100 more. But when a robust foreigner arrives on our shores we have an addition of $1,000 worth of labor to our wealth that costs nothing at nil; the new-comer pays his own way and asks nothing of us but the right of working for his liv ng. A recently taken State census of New York illustrates the value of this source of wealth. The population of this State is given at 4,916,004, an increase of 1,084,827 in the last ten years, and ot od-1,8-13 in the last uve years. I he gain since labo has been 28A per cent, or 2 8. a year, a larger rate of increase than is exhibited in either of the last four decades. It is taken for granted, therefore, thr.t the county has regained its old ratio of increase before the war, which was about one-third for every ten years. If this estimate is' correct, the pros ent population of the United States is about 40,500,000, and the popula tion at the next census, hve 3'ears hence, will be 53,000,000. '1 his vig orous growth, unequalled in anv eth er country on the globe, will of itself lift us out of the embarrassment into which the panic of 1872 plunged us; we shall grow out of the trouble, as well as work out of it. It is well enough to keep this strange recuperative agency before us. During the ten years, the num ber of immigrants nrtived on our shores was 3,379,627 enough to form two States as populous as Mas sachusetts. So that, in addition to the natural growth of population possessed by other nations, we have an immigration that gives enough population to form two powerful States every decade. When we calm ly reflect that this stream of 300,000 immigrants per annum is steadily pouring in upon us, and affecting ever3T part of the land; that our pop ulation five 3'ears" hence will be 53, 000,000; that the population of Mis souri will be 2,200.000, and the pop ulation o St. I ouis over 000,000 it will become clear that it is our duty not to repine at the depression that affects the land, but to prepare for the vigorous new growth that is aloi;t to succeed it. Missouri Republican. An Ohio Republican paper -says that "down with the papacy and stand by the public schools arc to be the rallying cry next year to lead us on to success." That's right. Stand by the public shools. You need them. Judge Keli.ev thinks it was the funeral of the golden calf instead that of the "rag bab-" which Presi dent Grant celebrated the other day. It is said that the President is ofte in a condition not to know a calf from a baby. . of to of it If of FARM FOR SALE. T will offer at private sale my farm L 103 ACRES.

A' d ressing whichisatonco a tr r ee at 1 e, health y, and ef- vj-jv restored- to i!t iWt-orijiW -color, teith the gloss and fresluiess of - youth. Thin hair is thickened, falling hair checked, and baldness ofteni' though, not always, cured by its use.' Noth ing can restore the hair where tho follicles are destroyed, or the glanda atrophied and decayed. But such s remain can be saved . for usefulness by this application. . Instead of foul ing tho hair with a pasty sediment, it will keep it clean and vigorous. Its occasional use will prevent the hair from turning gray or falling o$ and consequently prevent baldness. Free from those deleterious substances which make some preparations dan rrcrons, and injurious' to the hair, the Vigor can only benefit but not harm it. If wanted merely for a HAIR DRESSING nothing else can be found so desir able, . Containing neither oiU nor dye, it docs not soil white cambric, and yet lasts long on the hair, giving it a rich, glossy lastro and a grateful r.crfumc. . . . .'.....;.- Prepared by Dr. J. C.
