The goMcn apple which the minori
ty Democracy have been promising ti
the Union soldiers vjlinu they get in
power has turned to n-ilios, ami has ac
tually been proven worse than a delu
sion. Last year by some local diwif
Tcctions in the Republican ranks, the
Democracy of Ohio succeeded in elect
ing a majority in both branches of the
Legislature. This delectable body,
the especial guardians and friends of
the poor soldier; the clamorous advo
cates of paying all soldiers' claims in
gold proceeded deliberately and un
blushingly to perpetrate the outrage of
disfranchising the soldiers in the Day
ton Assylir.n, the maimed nnd crippled
veterans of the State. Here, then, is
a fair test, an unmistakable demonstra
tion of the result of Democratic rule.
We ask the soldiers of this county to
ponder over it. Let the soldiers of
the Republic consider how much Dem
ocratic pretense is worth. SoVlicrs,
make a note of it, and let the action
of the Ohio Legislature be a constant
warning against yielding to the delu
sive persuasions of this treacherous

That of Illinois resolved:
"That the right of suflragc shall be

JAS. E. SAYERS,
mb. Bixuii.tx-n i:i,ot(ii:.iE.
One of the most effective passages in
Mr. Bingham's argument, was con
tained in these words:
Tho gentleman from Js'cw York
(Mr. EvartsJ took occasion to refer to
the fugitive slave bill of 18o0, a bill
that wus disgraceful to the Congress
which enacted it; a bill that was in
direct violation of the letter and spirit
of the constitution; a bill of which I
can say at least, although I doubt
much whether the gentleman from
New York can, that it never
found an advocate in me; a bill of
which Mr. Welwter said that in his
judgment it was unwarranted by the
Constitution, a bill which ollercil a
bribe- out of tho common treasury of
the nation to es'erv magistrate who sat
in judgment on the right of a fleeing
bondman to that liberty which belong
ed to man when God "breathed into
his nostrils the breath of life ami he
became a living soul;" a bill which
offered a reward to the ministers of
justice to sharpen the judgment of tho
poor; a bill which suiting the con
science of the American people am
the conscience of the civilized world,
made it a crime to give shelter to the
houseless or a cup of water to him who
was ready to perish; a bill enacted for
the purpose of sustaining that crime of
climes, that sum of all villanies, which
made merchandise of immortality,
which transformed a man into a chat
tel, a thing of trade ; into what, for
want of a better name, wo call a slave,
with no acknowledged right in the
present, with no hope of inheritage in
the great hereafter, and to whose dark
ened soul the universe was voiceless
and Cod himself seemed silent; a bill
under tho direct violation of which
that horrible tragedy was enacted with
in our own Commonwealth, within the
sight, Mr. Chief Justice, of your own
beautiful city, when Margaret Gard
ner, with her babe lashed upon her
breast, pursued by the oflicers of the
law, in her wild frenzy forgot her
mother's afli'ctioii in the joy she felt at
Heading before the appointed time by
her own hand tho spotless soul of her
child back to her God who gave it,
rather than allow it to be tossed back
into the hell of human bondage under
American law; n bill, nevertheless, by
the American people even on that day
when Anthony Burns walked in chains
under the shadow of Hunker Hill,
where "every turf beneath your feet is
'a soldier's sepulcher," and where
sleep tho first just martyrs in the
cause of American independence, to
be tried before a magistrate in n tem
ple surrounded itself with chains and
guarded with bayonets, anil yet the
people stood by and said: Let tho law
he executed until it be repealed. Talk
to mo about the American people rec
ognizing the right of any President to
set aside the law. Who does not
know that two years after this enact
ment of 1852, the terrible blasphemy
was littered in tho platform of the
party whose representatives to-day in
sist on the executive prerogative to set
aside your laws, anil annihilate your
government; that all discussion in
Congress and cut of Congress, touch
ing this very fugitive slave bill, should
be suppressed. 1 lie boily that nuopto I
that resolution should remember that
there is something stronger after all
than the resolution by mere partisans
in convention assembled. They ought
to have remedied that. God is not in
the earthquake or in the fire, but in
the still, small voice, speaking to the
enlightened conscience of men, and
that voice is omnipotent. God knows
that for the honor of our common
country I would take the step back
ward, and cover tho nakedness and
the shame of the American people in
that day of American'disgraee. They
nominated their candidate for Presi
dent, and he accepted their terms, and
was carried into the Presidential chair
hv tho votes of all the States in this
Union. With such a record as that
with such a law, offensive to the judg
ment and conscience of the people of
the L nited btates, and of flic civilized
Senate and tell us that it is the tradi
tional policy of the American people
to allow their laws to be defiled by
any Executive? I deny it. There
is not a line in our history that does
not give a nut denial to the assump
tion. it has never been tione, never.
Tlift Tribune on tlio t hief JiiNtlce.
The Xcw York Tribune has the fol
lowing. It is deemed significant here,
because until quite lately a number of
Mr. Chases irionds "have counted on
the Tribune for aid in any movement
looking to bringing out Chase:
"The man who has done more than
all others, unless in a pecuniary sense,
to socurc this result is Chief Justice
Chase. He decided the vote of Mr,
an V mk to. . He did his utmost,
happily in vain, to carry oil Messers,
Anthony and Sprague. We doubt
that Mr. Henderson would have
voted ns he did, but for the. Chief
Justice's exertions. Those exertions
saved Andrew Johnson from a verdict
which we feel that lie has worked hard
and successfully to deserve. Thanks
to infinite mercy there is an ordeal
before us in which a concurrence of
two-thirds is not required to insure a
righteous verdict. Let Messrs. Chase,
Fcsscndcu & Co., take care ot their
man Johnson, while we organize for
and make certain the joyful advent of
vjrant ana victory."

A RIVAL OT I1HICK i-O.VKKOr.
The greal Democratic leader, Brick
Pomeroy is likely to have a formidable
rival in the person of a journalist
named Yaniee, who issues a paper at
Warsaw, Kentucky, called The Sign
of the Times. The Democratic masses
of tho country are sustaining the La
Cw-ie Democrat so liberally, and its
sentiments seem to suit-tho party so
admirably, that wo may expect fo sco
many of the same character spring up
all over thecountry. Hero is a sample
extract from the new organ, which is
clipped from nil articlo on "A monu
ment to Abralian liincoln :
Two hundred thousand dollars to
erect a monument to Abraham Lincoln !
Great God 1 Can it be possible? Is
there a white freeman so low, so de
graded, so steeped in infamy as to aid
or assist in erecting a monument to that
beast of iniquity, that father of Jaco
bins, of smutty stories ; a curse, a blot
on the pages of humanity; a political
inmi) : destroyer ot civil liberty; head
center ot a hot bed of thieves, knaves,
cowards, plunderers, murderess, house-
burners, woman murderers, spoon
thieves,; such a crew as the father of
demons would bo ashamed te associate
with ! A monument to Abe Lincoln,
the defunct, sent to his father, the
devil, on a Good Friday night, from a
play house, by that lover of liberty,
the great American Brutus, J. Wilkes
Booth, whose name will go down to
future generations ns the American
Liberator as Jlie man who had the
daring courage to destroy the first
American tyrant, to rid this unhappy
country of a monster. We can ex
claim, 'Well done, thou good nnd
faithful son of freedom !'" .
The above extract might suffice to
indicate the character aud.tone of the
paper, and to show what finds the
readiest market among Democrats, but
wo add another very brief articlo on
"Ucpudiatton or Kcvolution: '
"Americans, as God liveth, there is
but one hope for you, and that hope is
in the rising star of repudiation ; and
that star will lead you as did the star
i:i tho East lead the wisd men to their
Saviour of Bethlehem) of old."

THE SKW 1-AKTV PKOJIHT.
Mr. 1'linso a Preslileullal CniKllilnlo.
Tho Washington correspondent of
the New York Times who is little
given to sensation gives tlio follow
ing concerning the new party project
on tlio tapis, and which has been one
of the chief complications developed by
The most astoundinj political in
trigue ever known to tho polities of
tins country is now on toot among tlio
prominent politicians and office hold
ers in this city and elsewhere. The
ief movers in it aro Audrcw Johnson
President of the United States, after
acquittal, and Chief Justieo Chase.
The object is the formation of a third
party and tho defeat of General Grant,
if nominated at Clrcasro. On lues-
iay last Kx-Governor Pratt, of Mary
md,said that acquittal would follow,
and before tho week was out the coun
try would be astonished by an entire
change ot Cabinet. It has since
transpired that tho President has
agreed to send in a new Cabinet of
Bepublieans, immediately after ac
quittal, and to adopt and strictly carry
outtho reconstruction measures of Con
gress. Senator Henderson last niVht
stated this agreement to be a fact, and
it is believed by shrewd pidgcs to be
one of the principal elements whereby
sufficient strength and power may bo
given to Mr. Chase s party to make it
formidable, and to throw the Presi
lential election into the House of Rep
resentatives, jf not to elect its cumu
late before the people. Ihismoveincnt,
expects to bo nblo to defeat Gen. Grant
by arraying itself against tho extreme
radical element in tho Rebublican par
ty, which, it is believed, will bo his
main support. Tho proposition that
tho President shall abandon his oppo
sition to Congress is intended to neu
tralize the power of that body long
nough to make inroads upon it in
favor of this movement. When the
Administration is fully recognized, its
power and patronago will be used to
enhance Jlr. Chases prosneets. It
is not believed he would accept the
Democratic nomination, but tho fact
that Mr. Voorhccs ami many other
prominent Democrats openly advocate
his nomination, is conclusive that a
strong Democratic support is nt bis
command. Mr. Chase is unreserved
his expressions of contempt for
Gen. Grant as a political leader, and
tor tlio impeachment movement, anil
bewails what ho terms tlio tendency of
the party to take up with small men,
and says tho party has surrendered to
Gen. Grant. His influence has been
excited from the besrinins to defeat tho
impeachment, and he is believed to
have done more than any other man to
secure the acquittal of 'Mr. Johnson.
tlence the latter is willing, it acquit
ted, to reward Mr. Chase by throwing
the influence of the Administration in
his favor. The discovery of this in
trigue has startled the political me
tropolis to its very center. All eyes
are anxiously turned on the Chicago
Convention. Tho intriguers hope and
expect to see some men in the party
in their race over acouittal commit
some foolish acts, whereby they may
reap additional profit, lheso aro the
developcroents which are in cverbody's
mouth to-day to the exclusion almost
of even the verdict., Those who
choose can take these statements cum
grano talis. But they are based on
the facts nnd names mentioned above,
and have an absolute foundation.
One thing is certain, tho Chief Justice
is still a candidate for the Presidency;
any one who donbts this deserves a

Legislature who voted for the bill dis

Mr. Nasby was at Pettisville when
Sergeant Bates arrived at that village
wTth his flag. Ho reports the follow r
ing speech of welcome :
"Sergeant Bates, Sir: Understand
in ns we du, that yoo fliivalrously
made a wager (wieh is a bet) with a
Wisconsin ablishnist that yoo kud
walk from Vixburg to Washington
carryin tho American flag unfurled
without bein insulted nor nothin, and
liavin received testimony from lcadiu
Democrats uv Wisconsin, wieh is en
tirely satisfactory to us, that you are
not in no sense, nor never wuz at any
time, in sympathy with tho Ablishin,
or ez they falsely stylo themselves, the
lleptiblikin party, we extend to yoo
the hospitalities of Pettisville.
Southern hospitality uv tho broad
est kind hez bin extended to yoo.
Yoo hev had n chaw off uv evry plug
yoo hev had yer suck out uv evry
bottle, your nose shows that sence yoo
entered the sunny South you hev not
been allowed to taste water, wieh is our
ideo uv hospitablo treatment. Wtit,
my deer sur, does this go to show?
Wat duz this prove? Ef Charles Sum
ner, fur instince, or Judge Kelley hod
bin so presumpshus, or nny other Rc
publikin, ez to attempt sieh a feet, the
outraged Southern hart wood hev
biled over and ho wood hev been torn
tu pieces. What duz it prove? It
proves that 'taint the Hag wo object tn
so. much ez it is the men who hev
bin in the habit uv carryin it. In the
hands uv a eonstitooshenel Dimocrat
its the same old flag it alluz wuz. In
such hands, its russlo sounds in our
eers like the crack uv the nigger whip
and the site thereof is soothin. For
when the Jlng wuz in their hands, we
hunted niggers under its folds i:i tho
streets uv Boston. Under that flag
we shot Lovejoy in Alton, nnd sunk
Bailey's press in the Ohio at Cincin
nati. Under tho shadow uv that
blessed flag we sold niggers nt miction
in Washington, and that flag, that
symbol uv freedom, would hev floated
over the deck uv every slave ship
which sailed from Africa, but for the
unjust and soisidlo laws wieh forced
the philanthropists in the biznis to
sale under other ponants. In your
hands, and the hands uv sieh ez yoo,
that flag is to us the old flag it wuz
then, and its sacred to us beeosi luider
it wo cnod do all these things. That's
why wo love it, and that's why we
tolerate yoo with it. Hod it remained
sieh wo never wood hev raised our
hands ngin it. So long cz tho flag
was sicli wo loved it. But when the
North dispnoted our control, and put
it in the hands uv A. Liukin, a Ab
lishnist, it wuz our flag no more.
Then we felt it must comedown that
its mission wuz ended nnd that to us
it wuz 'nothin. I lired onto that flag.
I raised my hand agin it, and proud
I am. But born by a Dimocrat n
old stylo Dimocrat a Dimocrat who
stuck to us bceoz bo wuz nfecred uv
nigger ckality, it is wunst more the
same old flag and wo reverence it.

1IOW AN ERI'PTIOSt OF VENI'Tll'M
A correspondent of the PaW Mall
Gazette, writing from Mount Vesuvius,
April 4, civcs the lollowiiiir unusually
clear and interesting account of one
of the explosive exhibitions of that
famous mountain: We bad heard sev
eral explosions as we came up the
mountain, anil hud seen an occasional
shower of sparks thrown up above the
littlo crater; and these gradually in
creased until wo had taken our stand
as described. Then for more than two
hours tho hill .above us continued to
shoot forth an almost constant succes
sion of explosions of brilliant burli
ng stones. 1 hardly like to uso the
comparison, but l.lon t- think' J can
give n better iileir of it than by
saying that each explosion wns like a
vast girandole of rockets, only that
there was more sjecd nbotit it, and
hiore variety owing to the different
sizes of the stones shot out, nnd thnt
there was more intense light nt the first j
outburst than in tho caso of rockets.
Flame there certainly was none this
wo observed carefully; tlioudi the
trails of the shooting stones, and the
illuminated vapor, might almost ex
cuse tho word. J lie noiso of the
discharges was not a bang; it was a
pervading sound, almost exactly re-
seiubliiiir the waves on A beach and
wind blowing through shrouds. It
varied in intensity, but was nearly
ontiniious anil ot the character men
tioned. Tho mountain trembled per
ceptibly enough during tho whole of
It is impossible fin' mo to calculate
exactly but I judged that there were
trom to l.otH) stones in each
great discharge, and thcro were often
as many as eight or ten discharges in
u minute. 1 lie majority of the stones
were small tho largest say as largo as
two bricks end to end. Tho large
ones mostly fell back into tho crater,
but the small ones being thrown high
and more acted on by the wind, fell in
immense numbers on tlio leeward slope
of tho small crater and on tho same
sido of tlio great cone beyond. To
my mind tins was n spectacle hardly
less striking than the discharges them
selves: at any rate, it was quite now
to me. I have heard it said that the
cono becomes "red hot" under such
discharges. But this is not an nccu
ruto description of what I saw. "Red"
is not tho word, but "golden ;" and
tho cono was not covered even by these
copious showers ! Tho sight was fiir
more beautiful than it it had been so.
Tho crowd of golden spots on the
dead biacK surlaee tho small ones
generally resting where they fell, while
the large ones rolled tliroufrh them
lown the slope, and the constantchanso
as shower uftcr shower descended,
made a variegated and beautiful spec
tacle such as was of itself alone worth
the ascent. It formed a widerful
pedestal to the explosions which sur
mounted it, nml which were naturally
the great attraction. I could not cal
culate tho height to which some of the
small stones wero thrown, but it was
very great, rhero was generally one
which went far" higher than all the
rest, nnd pierced upward toward tho
moon, who looked calmly down mock
ing such vain attempts to reach her.
Tho larger pieces were, with rare ex
ception, not thrown so high; indeed
many of them only hist appeared over
the rim of the cone, above which they
came floating leisurely up to show their
brilliant forms and intense white light
for a second, and then subside again
into the abyss.
A DASinxr; young widow in Detroit
prepared a pleasant surprise for her
suitor a few evenings since.' Expect
ing a call from him. sho bid herself in
a convenient corner, nnd as ho touched
tho knot) of tho door bell, sprang out
in tho darkness of the evening, and
nearly smothered him with kisses.
His cool reception of her caresses
startled her with a" recognition of the
met that instead ot her lover she had
been lavishing her sweetness upon the
conductor of a street car, who had
come with n note cxnlainintr an un

pclled to behold in their midst a most dis
graceful and unpleasant scene. An old Iroary
headed Individual, who has bed stopping
here for the past throe months, and over whoesj
head tho frosts of many winters have passed (
boa been publicly seen reclining hi the lap' ana
arms of a young and blushing damsel. ' Wheth
er it has bon a matter of choice opon the part
of the maiden, or whether the attentions of tha
old gray-headed villain were forced apon her
wo cannot say. We can say,' however, that
such conduct is not looked opnn -with Tttfdt
hy our citizens ; and if tho young lady epecta
t remain in our midst king, and desire to
retrieve her character that tho first step neces
sary to tako, is to dismiss- from her' society
Iter old paramour and send him Id the arctic
