Tun Alacon(Ga.) Telegraph and
y,:s,ren gf;r calls for the repeal of the
fourteenth . amendment, that the
southern People may extort payment
for their liberated slaves. It ,says:
" Those slaves were not cannon and

There is a wide-spread ",prejudice
against National Banks, and \ the
bor reformers make opposition to
these institutions one of the cardinal
prinCiples in their platform. These
,gentJemen seem to have forgotten
,that it tiaoargely due to the Nation
al Banks that the Governnient was
indebted for fuitds to carry on the
war for the presefvp.tion of the Union;
that they stepped forward and took
millions of dollars of the Govern
ment bonds and. pafd for them when

It seems to have escaped the notice
of these fault-finding, financiers that
the Government must pay the-inter

In-the days of slavery, the South- .
ern States elected a large majority
of the Presidents, and monopolized
the money and honors of government
in an undue degree. Since slavery
was struck down through rebellion,
we have elected LiNcoLN, GRANT and
lIA.vEs from the North, and only
want to elect half a dozen more from
the majority to 1)e even with the ini-
.nority. . ' •
And so the old counties '•in the
south part of Pennsylvania have con

WALtrsoronn, Conn., - August
terriable tornado pased over ;Wall
ingford about six o'clock this even
lug and blew over houses, uprooted
trees and caused the greatest. devast
ation. It is estimated- that the killed
will number at least twenty, while
the wounded 'reach twice that num
ber. • The telegraph wires and poles
were blown down, so that it was im
possible to communicate directly with
-Nevr - Haven or outside points.
After the tornado 'had passed it
was found that it had-been confined
to a belt or 'territori about -half a
'mile wide and the whole damage and
loss of life had occurred on the sandy
plains about a quarter of a mile north
of the railroad-Station near the line
of the New York, New Haven And
HartfOrd.railroad, At G o'clock while
the.mea were testing the - several fac
tories in\the vicinity, it began to rain .
gently. In a few minutes the rain
increased to p ,perfect deluge,. while
the lightening illumined the darken
-ed sky as bright as day and the thun
der rolled a continuous and. deafen
ing roar. „-'
Without a second's warning a tor
nado of wind mingled with rain and
hail swept across- the northern part
of the town from west to east and
everything movable i its track -was
swept - away. It smiled to last but
a moment, but its results, were fright
ful. Afterwards lightrainS, fell, which
soon passed otl; and at"ss o'clock
'when - the,train arrived witliaid, the
heavens were clear and the moon
shone brightly. By actual count
forty dwelling houses were demolish
ed and at least fifty barns. The 'fol
lowing are the killed, nearly
all the houses falling upon them. In
the Plains school house 'on the chil=' ,
dren's desks lay the dead bodies. of
twelve persons—four men, six worn
en and two children. Besides these
one man, three women and three
children and probably one or two
more are believed to be killed and
still among the ruins. •
fT he
: list of wounded, many of
whom are dying, reaches at present
above forty, and increased as
th'e reports come in. The victims
are of -both sexs, their ages ranging
from two ..years upwards; and •in
same eases - four or live hrone family
are 'killed or badly wounded. •
The serene was a heartrending one.
The.- wooden houses were carried
clear off' their forindations from a
- few feet to an eight of amile. In, the

track lesser damage was done, chim

The Catholic church
- and the . new brick school were total
ly •dernolished. The top of the brick
factory of the Wallingford company
was carried away. Fires were com

have been greatly increased.

Bourbon Democracy, with the consent of
the people, will be allowed to assume`the
reins of government. The dissatisfaction
so universally expressed over the , recetit
legislative acts of the Democratic House,"
is sufficiently co wincing. from mutter
ed disapprobation it has grown into 'owl
condemnation. The people have had
enough of the" political demagogues who
walked into the halls of Congress on no.
other virtue that the shot-gun policy, anti
as their recent acts have shown, turned
legishition into :a farce. The Democracy,
however, have shown
.themselves not idto
and arc already in the field preparing for
the coming Presidential contest. Through
the Putter Committee the lit:y.ll4de .has
been sounded. The cry of Fraud wilt be
their chief stock in trade, and .will be the
battle cry that will - be borne upon every
breeze, , and will echo iu every bar-room.
But something more than the mere cry
of fraud will have to be added to. their
stock iu trade. qrant and a third term
may lac included, but as time passes the
admibistration of President tirant be-
comes I/tighter, and suffers none by corn
parisou. The cry of C/iPiariSIII has lost its
potency. The ghoSt of the third term
haS been laid ; and although it may be
deemed premature; -yet the indications
are unmistakable that the masses are
preparing to place again to the- front, in
the protection of their rights and liber
ties, the soldier statesman who has beet
trusted, tried, and found not wanting.
The Potter Investigating Committee,
however, is so far a failure ; and foe, all
the Democratic capital it is going to lark°
it may as well put up the shutters and
close the shop. Over twenty thousand
dollars of the people's money has already
-been exeended in its fruitless search 'for
fraud; yet nothing has conic, to. light, or
ever 'will. -Yet is doubtless pleasant te
the Democratic palate to wander- by the
sad sea waves,—where the 'committee
have taken thenuselves—to cat and sleep
in the cool sea lreezes, to sip iceclpunch
es awl to suck sherry cobblers through a
straw, so long as it\is at public cost. But

idea of Reform. While business is pros

of dollars can be squandered in the vain
endeavor of attempting to, enake a martyr
of the - Democratic party, ant he apotheo
size the . great Tilden with lb§ barl of
Money. . \,.
In the West, the political campaign for
the fall has commenced. The Democracy
have entered the field with the old cry of
`Reform. and Retrenchment inset ibed upon.
-their banners ; but that dodge will hardly
go down again with the people. There
were too many deficiency bills which had
to be, passed during the last session, in
order to . pay the ordinary and legitimate,
expenses of the Guvernment ; and hence
4he Retrenchment gun has 'exploded,
Making appropriations that Would only
cover a, part of the -general expense' of
goverument—well knowing that detleien
cY bills-must inevitably follow—and then
eating Mal retrenchme-nt-:is it laud of legis
lation that Will not mislead a great while.
It cannot be said, however, that the
Democratic House did not make lit-,
the progress in the way, of retrenchment
dining its last session. Throughout all .
Um Departments here in Washington
they succeeded in reducing the pay of
many of the poor employes as they possi
bly could, but taking good care to keep
their own pay and that of the Democratic
employes of the House up to the old fig
ure. In this way a few thousand dollars
have been saved; and befice we have a re
trenchment which the Democratic stump
-orators in the West are now prating about
with about as much satisfaction as if sumo
great and glorious feat of arms had been
achieved. .
The President and family, instead, of
seking some fashionabo resort '' on Moun
tains wild, or by . the sea shore," have
taken up their residence in one of the Cot- .
tages°longing to the • Soldiers' Heine.
This an admirable choice, and is cer
tain] a most desirable place to pass away
the arm days of summer, as well as be
ing but a short distance from the execit-
Bye mansion. The grounds belonging to
the Homo embrace about live hundrdift
acres, and are laid out in drives . that are
finely shaded, and are always in perfect
order. At a very convenient distance, it
has of late years become a popular resort,
with every one desirous of escaping, for a
few boors; from - the brick and mortar •
and the beat and dust of . the, city. Al
though quiet, and to a great extent se
chided, yet the visitor will, on any fine
evening, find hundreds of people enjoying
a quiet drive through these most delight
ful grounds. The carriage ways are about
twelve miles In extent, and, in their set
pentine'course take their way through
many interesting scenes, by gray old
frowning rocks, grand - in their solitude,-.
over . deep and wild ravines, through fine
ly. wooded, lawns, and aro4ndi breezy lakes,
beautiful with their "wild and -willow'd
shores." Well"may the impecunious Bo
hemian exclaim, "If I had but a thous

treat ono could slide down the deCline of

The cottage' whir' the President has se
lected is.the same -that was occupied by
'President Lincoln, and is noted for the•
pleasing prospects with which it is, sur

a vlist expanse of the surrounding coun
try stretches out before you.; while, at
the same time, a magnificent view of the
city is at on&; obtained; with the quiet

.but is

sented from this stand-point is grand, and
certainly a more charming place about.the
'Capitol could not have been - selected for
the purpose to which it is devoted. The

Wended our way on Saturday evening to
the plac,e.,of meeting, - where a number .of
our citizens were congregated together.
The speaker announced by the . posters
failed to put in an appearance. and in his,
place came Thompson and Johnson, - or
Johnston, to elucidate the Greenback the
ory. The meeting was called to order by
the election of 31. F. Terry, M. D., as
Chairman.. Mr. Thompson, of Towanda,
was then introduced, who read the princi which Greenback club&; are expect
ed to subscribe, making a few remarks
thereon. Taking his seat, the other speak-
er came forward and announced his inters
tion of making a speech. For a longtime
ho had been speaking in Massachusetts,
and he was brim full of paper currency
ideas. He denounced gold and silver as
a failure, and said that we must look to
something better, which something better
was nothing more nor leSs than a green
back dollar, bearing on its face no miser
able promise to pay, but an irredeemabli
full lega.l tender greenback dollar! Ac
cording to his theory, it is 'an . easy thing
to make money. All the Government has'
to do is to put its stamp upon a piece of
paver, and it goes abroßd as money, sand
is t..) performdll the functions of money,
just— the same as the greenback dollar
which bears upon its fitce -a 'promise to
pay. withsthe addition that it shall be full
legal tender for ail debts, Unties on im
port?, etc. Hut .hold ! We came near
forgetting that we arc to have no imports.
For the'gentleman said that he had often
heard the objection raised-that the kinds
of money ho advocated would not be tak
en of us by foreign countries, but. he did
MA want to do business with other couu-
trim So then'there wil .be-no imports,.
since foreign countries are to be left out
of consideration when the Government
goes to-work issuing irredeethable.,green
backs. That respect which other nations
have hitherto bad for the United States,
is to be lost, but then what we lose in rc
.spect aboad, will be more thim compensa- -
red for by plenty of cliettp currency at
home, with which to stimulate our lan
guishing industries; and stop the mouths
of blatant inflationists.
In regard to the. hard. times the speaker
end.!avored to make it appear that some
! how or other the leaders-of the
the party were responsible for the depres-.
sion of busiiiess, ; but his head scented to
be enveloped in a' fog, forledid not make
the thing very'cicar.. He referred to what
he "called "the terrible contraction of the
. currency," as one of the causes, ,but for
got to tell his hearers, that despite this
"terrible contraction," the purchasing
powet of the volumd of currency is great
er to-day than it has been with the single
exception of one year since 180. He ht
bortul long to discover causes that do not
exist, by drawing dxtensively upon the
imagination, but his efrortSWere attended
with little success, soil after depicting thi3
terrible woes which the policy of_ thi :
publican party inflicts upon the country,
he brought his remarks to a'cloe.
One of .our, neighbors who \ studies
finance for a busitteiss, also made little
speech, in which he made known \,"
views upon the subject." "Let the Gov
eminent, ' he said, "issue money and fend
it to the •people for a period of twenty
ysars at four per eentum. taking in s& \
curity mortgages on their real estate, and
abolishing, the, 'national banks. At a
glance it S will be seen that by this means
the Gove?nirmnt will be able •to get into
circulation an enormous amount of green
backs, everyldollar of Which would add to
the. Nation's indebtedness. After two
hundred - millionS or more of this stuff
has been issued, what a greenback dollar
will be worth, only the man in the moon,.
who in all probability will be Secretary of
the Treasury in those days, will be able
to tell.
The speeches all made,2the next move
ment was to organize a Greenback Club:
Six enrolled their names as members,
elected a President and Secretary, and
the meeting adjourned:-- This ended the
first great greenback rally of Terry.. But
we suppose.that more are to follow:. How
ever we advise the County Cominince to
send along a different class of speakers.
The citizens of this place in general, :do
not propose to gulp down seeceless asser
tions and sayings, mistaking them for po

I promised you that I would give you a
description of our village. At that time
farmers were just completing their
seeding; now they are just_getting
through with harvesting. Four weeks ago
everything wasioncourag,ing for the best
crops known forlears, but excessive beat
with heavy rains• has interfered, - and in
some localities much damage has been
done. In this immediate vicinity we have
had but little to Complain of, except in
hay; the quality of that article has been
damaged to some extent. Corn promises
well, and a largo yieTd is expected—this is
oar most reliable crop ; very little is ever
slipped out, of the county; it is fed .to
hogs and cattle.
•. Oar village is situated in 'Winnebago
County within four miles of the north
line of the State, and is surrounded by
one of the finest farming districts in the
West. • •
Our merchants derive their custom
wholly from the farming comninity; We
have our manufacturing interests. The
rrile school is theTride .of a large ma
ority of the inhabitants, and a large num
have graduated that were residents of
other towns. • We employ four teachers
whose salaries - range from $3OO to $750
per year; the number,' of pupils is about
200, about equally divided in the different
departments, which are primary, inter
mediate, grammar and high school. For
Churches-we have the Methodist Episco
pal and the Roman Catholics. They are
largely atteded `when they have the right
