Register. TLe hypocricy of the Republicans was never made more manifest than it is by their pretence of depreciating feeling of uneasiness and alarm as calculated to effect business, while they are laboring themselves to ex cite a distrust which no sensible peo ple feel. The fact is, nobody is frightened at the proposal to expose Republican fraud, but the Republi can leaders and office-holders them selves, hence, the above is a speci men of the kind of stuff these pollu ters of the ballot box are spreading before the people, for the purpose of. inflaming their minds and exciting partisan strife and civil discord in the country, that they may retain their plundering hold upon the gov ernment. When the Democratic par ty submitted to the Electoral Com mission, it did not agree to confirm the fraud and encourage its repeti tion by crowning it and bowing down to it and hailing it as a blessing to the land. ; Every member of ; the House of Representatives declared the result a fraud, and Republican evidence has so accumulated to prove it such, that not to give it a thorough investigation would be cowardly and a disgrace. : We have nothing but- detestation to express for the deed done and nothing but loathing con tempt for its enactors, and the man who opposes an investigation into the frauds, is simply a political guer rilla, willing to indorse any means by which his party may obtain pow er. The crime is too great to be for gotten and too shameful to be con doned,' and should be so thoroughly probed as to make the history of it so complete and authentic, that the pol itical party which devised and con sumated it may sink under the load of infamy it brings. . It is not the ti tor; that has been settled, if not well enough at least long enough to make it not worth the while of the great national Democratic v party to disturb the country with its useless and futile agitation. Bring the fraud to the surface and expose it to the gaze of the country, and if Mr. Hates' is content to remain an occupant of the White House, with his title reeking with robbery and fraud, and the fing er of scorn following him for the re mainder of his term, let him do so, but let the Democracy organize and arm for the great battle of 1880, that the fraud may not be repeated again. ., . Tbe individual who drafted the' resolution for the bob-tail Conven tion held in Eaton, referring to the investigation as a "plot to Mexican ize the government," is certainly ig norant of the system of the Mexican government, or he would have omit ted the sentence. The essence of that system is to permit an adven turer to get into the Presidency by bargain and fraud, and then to keep him in by intrigue or force, the very plan of the . Republican party as to Mr. Hates. Any man with a grain of common sense can easily detect which party are the "Mexicanizers" of our government. The Cincinnati Enquirer says that if Maj Shaw is removed from the Superintendency of. the Orphans' Home, there is talk of making him the Republican candidate for Secretary of -State.. The Board of that institu tion don't meet until after the Re publican Convention, so this body will know nothing about whether he will be removed or not If it did and would nominate him, he would be the best candidate ever presented on that side. We would hate help to beat him, but would be obliged to do it.' ':' ' The boldest and most bare faced communistic declarations irom any person on the stump or off of it, were from Wm. H. West, the Republican candidate for Governor of Ohio last fall, and they added much to his overwhelming defeat, and vet the bob-tail Radical Convention held in Eaton, had the brazen impudence to pass a resolution charging them upon Democrats! We call the attention of honest "irrespective of party men,' to this-miserable piece of political trickery and deception. Hamilton, Butler county, is as pro ductive of newspapers as warm rains in the spring time are of mushrooms, "The Weekly Orcut" is the last, a copy of which is on our table. Of course it is the regular Dr. Towns end, Sarsaprilla, Simon pure, "none other genuine but it,' and should be 'well shaken before taken." Hon. F. C. LeBlond is a candi date for Congress in the Fifth Dis trict Mr. LeBlond ia a Mercer county Democrat, and served in Con gress from 1863 until 1867, and made a very good and creditable re cord.' Should he be the lucky man, we can support him very cheerfully, Is (JoNKLiNa a Democrat? Are Chandler and Cameron Democrats? To these leading Republicans more than any Democrat, belongs the re sponsibility of investigating the Presidential fraud. ; These Republi cans .demanded it should be done, and the effort to make political cap ital" out of it against the Democrats, is all bosh. . . The Dayton Journal says the Trus tees of the Dayton Asylum met there on the 23d inst, to reform out the balance of the Republican em ployes, but finding the pressure for "reorganization" rather heavy turn ed to Eaton Register. We don't see the Dayton Journal, but from the above we conclude that Balam and his ass have both spoken again, about the Dayton Asylum bu siness. , We are surprised that Mr. Bickhah takes so much pains to bring into disrepute and cast odium upon an institution, that is an orna ment and a credit to the beautiful city of his adoption, and only for po litical porposes. If there was any mismanagement in the affairs of the Asylum, or any neglect on the part of tbe Superintendent and employes, the flings of the editor would be jus tifiable and might be passed over, but such is not the case, and no one has a better opportunity to know this fact, than the gentleman him self. The Trustees met simply to transact imperative business con nected with the institution, and nei ther to i'reform" in or "reform' out any of its employes. When they ap pointed Superintendent, Steward and Clerk, according to the letter of the law, their power in that direction ended, and no "pressure" was ne cessary to turn other changes over to the Superintendent. He possess es that power by right, and the Board is fully convinced that, having the warmest interest and feeling for his patients, he will do his best to make good and efficient selections, as he is obliged to live with and govern them. No employe was removed for any cause whatever, that his place might be filled by Democrats. Dr. Huff desired to leave before reorganiza tion took place, but was induced to remain until the new administration could fill his place.' Both he and the Druggist leave, of their own ac cord, on arrangements made before the present Board was appointed. Thej&wJEhysician. and Druggist ap pointed, are men of good moral char acter, and above the average of those who have filled similar places in oth er. institutions, ihe' iioard has not, nor does it expect to demand of Dr. Morse anything, only that he run the Dayton Asylum for its own best interest He has already shown his independence in this and mani fested such disposition, by refusing to take men wholly unfit for the places they seek, and take only such as are worthy. Dr. Adams, the sue cessor of Dr. Huff, has spent four years in Asylums two with Dr. Gundkt at Athens and no man with the least regard for truth, can utter a word to his discredit He was re commended by Professors in Cincin natr, Columbusand -elsewhere, and we are satisfied is the right man in the right place. The Republicans are determined to have a "bloody shirt" campaign this fall. ' For the evils of bankrupt cy of all kinds of busines, the star vation of the laboring classes, the stealing in the Presidency and the plundering of the treasury of millions of dollars,: the only appology offered by the party in power, will be the cry of "O'Conner Legislature," Mex icanizing' tbe government and "rev olution." By such meaningless stuff it is expected : to frighten the labor ing classes and over-taxed farmers, to vote the ticket of the party that has disgraced the country, and by contraction, bankrupted and ruined its manufactures, . A few Republicans of Preble coun ty in Convention assembled, baed resolution on the declarations of their candidate for Governor last fall, and charge them as being "communistic declarations of Democratic dema gogues," and then ask tbe independ ent, honest, "irrespective of party': voters to come and help them ! This is a specimen of the dishonest decep tion that is to be used, in this coun ty, to induce "irrespective of party men" to support an organization rascality and robbery. The Republicans who voted for the resolution in the bob-tail Convention; that declared the re-districting of the State to be "grossly unfair," don' recollect that they approved of worse gerrymandering in 1872, which cut up the State so outragecusly and "grossly unfair," that it gave them eighteen out of twenty Congressmen A nice set of fellows indeed, to talk of unfairness in re-districting Shame! If the term "Mexicanize" and "rev olution" can be properly applied either side, it is to the party now power, because their President holds his seat by fraud and against the old and long established way of de termining the election of Presidents, It was unconstitutional, unjustifi oie, without precedent and conse quently 'revolutionary.' The screech owl howl of "Mexicanizing" the gov eminent comes from parties guilty the crime themselves, The Democracy of Pennsylvania held their State Convention at Pitts burg and nominated the following ticket: For Governor, Andrew H, Gill; Lt-Governor, John Fertig Snpreme Judge, H. P. Ross; Seoreta ry of State, J. Simpson Africa. The convention was large and enthusias tic," and spoke well for a grand victo- V' ..." Eaton Register. A WORKING BODY.

Yet Radical Conven tions, and Radical office-holders are howling over Democrats "Mexi canizing" the Government! The "irrespective of party" voters should not allow themselves to be deceived into the support of the contraction party, by such political trickery and knavery. Here is one of the best specimens of "gerrymandering" ever placed be fore the public, and it comes from the Granite State, New Hampshire In the six cities of that State 8,900 Republican votes elect sixty-two Representatives to the Legislature, and , 7,470 Democratic votes only elect fourteen Representatives!

The Pari of Ameri ca Potter Investigation.- Com- mtttee-The repeal oj the Bank- rupt Law Grant and Shields The Family of the late Professor Henry The Decoration Day. - [From our regular Correspondent.] WASHINGTON, D. C. May 29th '78. ! At all times an agreeable place for a promenade, the Capitol is never so attractive as when the foliage of the trees in the parks and on the ave nues is developed in rich abundance. The Pennsylvania is suggestive of the Paris Bonlvards in their summer UUC ty of Florence, Stockholm "and some other of the most charming places in Europe. Bnt it is not alone in afflu ence of nature that a pedestrian finds .delight in Washington. : Pas sion and taste for art can nowhere be better satisfied than in the Cor coran Gallery a noble gift of a gen erous-'and judicious millionaire- where some of the choicest paintings ever produced have been collected. "When the civil .war is over ". the political : struggle ended and after Congress has adjourned, your cor respondent will be able to devote more of: his. time and . your paper more of its space to art, artists and historical sketches of Washington as it was, as it is and will be. The Potter investigating commit tee has held several meetings, but no definite plan as to scope of its work has yet been adopted, in point of fact, the outlook for the committee is not so encouraging as the men who inaugurated the movement ex pected. There is no interest what ever taxen in it here, and tue most insignificaut investigation of the Inst Congress received -more notice than this will. And, from reports that have come from abroad, in the news papers and from private sources, it is generally understood mat the country is as indifferent to the mat ter as the politicians here arc. The action Or rather lack of action of the Democratic National Committee has been a serious damper upon the en thusiasm of the investigators, and the failure to scare anybody has dis appointed them. .Mr. rotter. Chair man of the committee, has written an important letter to a friend. The substance of the letter is an indica tion of the course of the Democrats in the House in instituting the in vestigation, and denying that it is intended, to affect the title of Presi dent Haves, or is in the least degree revolutionary. He thinks the inves tisration necessary to a final author itative settlement of the question which has caused so much agitation ever since the Presidential election and justifies it on the ground of pat notism and peace. J. he letteos vers ions and elaborate. The bill to repeal tue Bankrupt law, with the Senate amendments, is now lvmg on the speaker s table in the House. Registers of bankrupt cy throughout the country are tak ing a great deal of interest in this bill, and some of them ara now here trving to defeat it The Senate amendment . which postpones the date until the 1st of September, when tbe repeal shall take effect it is un derstood, was suggested by them and its adoption secured through thei efforts. Even : though the repeal takes . effect at that clate. it will be several years in most of the States before the proceedings already in stituted can be terminsted. Among the Republican Senators there is an evident purpose to tax the country about $20,000 per year for the benefit of Gen. Crrant. ihe motion to reconsider the vote by which the bill to place Gen. Shields on the retired list was defeated, pending and will be caueu up, per DoV Cameron is particularly cner- g3tic in pushing this measure in the interest of Gen. Grant. He has made appeals to several Democratic Senators, urging them to vote lor tne bill when it comes up, because Geu. Grant "actually needs the money." This is the way he put the matter Senator Hill, reminding the latter, the same time, that he had declared he would vote for the bCl if be be lieved Grant needed assistance. There can hardly be any doubt that assurance has been received from the ex-President that he desires this "nresent" ' from the people. A Re publican Senator stated yesterday that the bill would be called up soon as its passage could be made certain by the pledge pt sufficient votes. The requisite number of votes will probably be obtained, as the Re publican Senators who voted against it before have been informed that the measure is really to help Gen Grant., The indications , now that the bill will be passed, and that Gen. Shields and Gen. brant will both be retired. The Democratic friends of Gen. Shields will stand his name, and as it has been made to appear that ex-Prcsident Grant actually short of funds, it is not lm probable that several Democrats will ote to him lhis The appointment of Prof. Baird the Secretaryship of the Smithsonian Institute, made vacant by the death of Professor Henry, was a very ting one. He had been assistant Secretary, and, reasonably, will more able to carry out the designs and wishes of Professor Henry. Mrs. and Miss Henry will remain at Smithsonian until they leave their usual summer trip to the moun tains, returning to the Smithsonian in the fall, until their new home ready for them. It is uncertain present in what particular locality Washington they will purchase permanent home. The family re ceived a few days ago the amount the life insurance policy of Professor Henry, $8,000. They will also du ring life receive the interest of the $40,000 Henry fund, which will amount to $2,400 per annum. the death of the last remaining mem ber of the family the fund goes to Smithsonian Institute. Everybody will be glad to know that the family of the distinguished savan are e well provided for. Extensive preparations fbr observ ing the Decoration day to-morrow are being made.

Dr. AUGUST. WILLIT CONSOLIDATE THE REPUBLICAN PARTY? is Some Republicans say that one ef fect at least is certain to be produced by the introduction and passage of tbe rotter resolution, and that is the consolidation of their party. A few croaking Democrats give utterance to tne same opinion. , - , If the Republican party were now performing the function for which it was originally organized, -that of the handmaid of human liberty, its con solidation would be a public bless ing. ' But, in the estimation of many who were at some time among its zealous members, and of not a few who helped to establish it, the Re publican party has Eurvived its day of usefulness,- while numerous and great abuses have grown up under its long continued lease of power which demand a change in the ad ministration of the Government The Republican party suffered a deep in ory , in having a man of so much military distinction . that he must perforce be recognized as its leader and head, while be possessed but lit tle capacity for civil office, and held extremely loose notions of official ob ligations. Corruption can hardly be said' to have crept in during his two terms; of the .Presidency; for the truth is, rather, that the floodgates were opened and it was allowed to rush in. -;'r ';-A ' " Mr. Hayes succeeded Gen. Grant by means which main' Republicans disapprove of as heartily as any Dem ocrats, and, besides, he seems to pos sess few qualities to commend him to the favor of his own political or ganization. Under - such circum stances there'was naturally a strong tendency to disintegration in the Re publican party. , . Now, however, we, are toTd that it is'. to. .be ..reunited,' and made once more compact and harmonious. This is to be brought about by the Potter resolution.' And what is the rotter resolution? A resolution to investi gate certain alleged frauds. ' That is to re-unite the Republican party, and the reunion is to be in opposition to investigation. In other words, -we are to have a Republican party ho mogencous and solid in defence of cheating and in support of fraud! .-We do not believe it We have too much respect for the mass of the Republican party for its. numerous reflecting and eminent men for its great independent journals, like the JVcw York Times to think that such a thing can be true." 1 '. If the Republican part'.ever be comes united again, we predict that it will only be after having shaken off and disowned both Hayes and his frauds as well as having declared itself against the re-election of Grant and the re-inauguration of his cor N.
