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 DEHQl'RAt'Y AI XECiRO NT ITH.Kil'.. The last Democratic Convention of .Ohio resolved: ' "That vc are opposed both in prin ciple and policylo Negro Suffrage." That of South Carolina resolved: "That we declare our willingness, when ire have the power, to grant the colored citizens, with the proper qual ifications as to property and intelli gence, the right of suftrngc." That of Illinois resolved: "That the right of suflragc shall be limited to the white race in this coun try." ' And D. II. Uill, a leading Demo 'cratic politician on tho cvo of the clcc- tion, telegraphs from Georgia: "A very" largo torch-light proccs- I world, executed, how dare gentlemen jn of.

E. SAYERS, VOL. XI. 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." FIRMNESS IS THE RIOIIT A8 OOD 01VE8 UB TO BEE THE ItlOIIT.

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 !

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."

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 impeachment: 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 straight jacket. 0.E of the members of the Ohio Legislature who voted for the bill dis franchising students while traveling abroad wrote home that he bad pur chased a picture to adorn his 'palatial mansion' called "An Oshun Landscip."

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. Judjre tVniiitwnn!

No one could fathom tho reasons for this re quest. Mr. Ross, of Illinois, asked Mr, Stevens if ho thought Senators should perjure themselves in order to convict Andrew Johnson'.' Mr. Ste vens replied thnt ho was inclined to think it would'nt hart them much. This brought out Mr. Woodward, of Pennsylvania, who characterized the attempt to infbieneo Senators as inde cent, and went on for several minutes ingcncraldeiinnciatiou. Gen: Schonck got a copy of tho Globe and turning to a spcccli made by Mr. Woodward n few months since, said tho charges lie had just made camo with a bad grace from the man who had declared Con gress n fragmentary IhxJv, that the House hail no power to impeach or tho Senate to try, and that if he was to advise tho President, with the nrmy and navy nt his back, ho would f-oon make an end of impeachment and im peachers." Gen. Schenck then went on in a very bitter strain and said he had at the time prepared a resolution for expulson,- but had been in some way turned from bis purpose. - ; Taxing mill ilclnjr Taxed. r It is ono thing to bo taxed, and quite a different thing to tax one's selD I low many people pay their Govern ment taxes grudgingly, who ntthe same timo needlessly squander ten tithes tho amount?

NO. 48. 1IOW AN ERI'PTIOSt OF VENI'Tll'M LOOKS. 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 our sfav. 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 foreseen absence. The widow, there upon, with great propriety, fainted on tho spot. Moral, look before vou leap ! f - - The llnnkrnpt tjtw.
