General Sherman ou his visit to New Orleans, last if eek, vaa honored with a re ceptkm - by a " loyal " club there. . He . was toasted, and very reluctantly arosa and apokef aa lullawi much to the chagrin of the Grant followers present : GEN. SHERMAN'S SPEECH. Z believe this Government will keen on growing until it spreads itself over the entire American continent ; but in .order to 'gain thia much desired end, and to maintain oanelves as a free and independent Republic, we have got to ahow more c&anty toward each other. It has been remarked by some aentleman who has preceded xae that it was generally con- ceaea Dy we toiaiers ot Dotn armies at the cloae of the late vil war,- that if the questions and all matters of the settle ment of the differences between the North and Soath were left to the armies, it would become quiet and orderly. I so believed ; and before signing the agreement with Gen. Joe Johnson, I called together all ine trenerais under my command, and without, a dissenting voice' they agreed with me. I believe they surrendered in good faith,, and would have lived up to the- very letter of the acrreement: and. in my. opinion, if there had been no recon struction acta of. Con ureas, and the armies been, left at the time to settle all questions of difference between the different sections of the oountry, the people would have at once Become quiet and peaceaoie. I probably, have as good means of information as mostperaons in regard to what ia called tne Jia-iUux, and am perfectly satisfied that the thing is creativ over-estimated : and if the Ku-Klux bills were kept out of congress, ana tne army Kept at tneir legitimate duties, there are enoueh cood and true men in'all Southern States to put down' all KttKlux or other bands of. mar radders;, i . The N.,Y. Sun correspondent says : i' These were just ' the remarks that his en trainers" did not . want him to make, and there were many who doubtless concluded that they had made a blunder in insisting so persistently upon having a speech irona the General of the Army. It is difficult' to convey through a letter the exact impression made by the manner, as ;well as by the words of the speaker, but it is very clear that he had no faith in the legislative mosaic called reoonstruo-tion acta, and that he did not consider the Ku-Klux of sufficient strength or conse quence to require the repressive agency of uio uiuiea states .army. . in lactone spoke contenptnonsly of the whole business in and out of Congress. . ':. - In private conversation he was even mora emphatio and nnreeerved. Speaking of the San Jkmingo.achemev he said to me: . - "We have territory enough more than we have use for. Ave can hire a coaling stat ion in the West Indies for three thousand dollars a 'year, and we had better do that-" ".- :. t ..... . .. If- thia had occurred in New York, the a?wn-wonld lave had the full remarks, if the reporter had to take notes on his shirt-cuffs; but here the newspapers did not have, the, enterprise to give any report. - GEN.

Wade refuses to be Radical candidate for Governor. What ft pity I THE OHIO LEGISLATURE Last week was in a muddle over the appropriation bilL It was first defeated in the Senate by a vote yeas 12 to nays20. Of the 12 who voted for it, Messrs. Amos, Daugherty, Hibbs, Hunt and Lord, were Democrats; of those voting against it, Messrs. "Rartrain", Bell, ' Howard, Jones, McKinney, Streator and Wade, are Republicans. If these had voted for the bill it would have passed. i Alter fcuie m rh uicuuca buuuu out the Morgan raid claim and on tne; 23th the vote was againtaken and stood! yeas 12, nays 22. Of the 22 nays six were prominent Republicans. ; The measure to force equality of color and race upon the rcbools of the State passed the House last week by a strict party vote So we go in these happy days of Grant, Sumner and company. On Friday the Senate refused for the fifth time to pass the appropriation bill. ' Odin's railroad bill was postponed in the House. ! The Senate bill providing for the issue of new bonds bearing eight per cent in , terest, to take the place of the bonded debt ot counties, townships, cities and villages, which now bear 7 3-10 per cent passed. The appropriation billpassed the Senate on Monday evening after seven defeats The General Assembly adjourned on Wednesday. The Morgan claims failed to be come a law by not receiving a two-thirds vote in the Senate. This is the decision of the Supreme Court in relation to this matter : Two political measures much esteemed by the Radicals came to grief on Monday. A resolution to accept the cession of jurisdiction over the Soldier's Home at Dayton tendered by the United States to Ohio, was lost This was to get around the decision of the Supreme Court of the State, and make the inmates of the Home the controlling power in Montgomery county politics. General Ward got the resolutions before the Senate.- and they were lost by 17 to 18.

The energy with which the building of this great thoroughfare is being pushed forward ia an added guaranty of its early completion and its wise management. We learn from the financial agents of the load, Messrs. Jay Cooke & Co.,' that, at the present date, the grading is nearly finished for 266 miles, from Lake Superior, through Central Minnesota, tq.he eastern border of Dakota; trains are running over 130 miles ef completed track ; the Mississippi river is bridged at Brainerd and once more join, to the lakes by rail, and track lay ing is rapidly progressing westward. By September next trains will run to the Red river, and., the grading will probably be far advanced toward the Great Bend of the Missouri river in Central Dakota. ' In the meantime work ha been com menced the present season on the Pacific coast ; a large force of men is already employed in the valley of the Columbia river in Washington Territory, and hereafter the work of construction will be pushed both eastward and westward toward the centre with such rapidity as the best in' terest bf the road may justify. Including its purchase of the St Paul and Pacific Road, the Northern Pacific Railroad Company has 413 miles of road now in operation, and before the close of the present season the length of the fin ished track will be at least 560 miles.- The new highway to the Pacific is being constructed at the lowest cost compatible with first-class work. . .. . Sexatob Carl Schubz received a fine ovation at the Southern hotel, St Louis, on Monday evening, from liberal Republicans and Democrats. He was addressed and welcomed by two gentlemen on be half of each. . He responded in an able speech, concluding thus:'. We are not surrounded, he said, by the ordinary circumstance and incident of party warfare. The country has passed through a great and terrible conflict It must be the supreme object of solicitude to every pat riotic man in the bind, to whatever party he may belong, not to re-open and con tinue mat conflict for party advantage, but to close it finally and forever. Were we to continue that conflict then indeed the separate and sharply antagonistic action of parties would be in order, but if we mean to close it. that can be well done only by a certain union of co-operation and sentiment between them. Therefore am glAd to see the two parties united before me to-night' Nebraska, has a Republican Governor and other- State officers, and a Republican legislature. The Governor has been impeached and tried, but the Senate,' acting as a court, adjourned without coming to a vote, although the proof was conclusive. A little later, the State Insane Asylum was burned, and it is now hinted that the in cendiaries were connected with the State government. We believe that no Democratic State ever presented so bad a record as the Republican State of Nebraska. O'Doshavah RosfiA, the great Irish patriot, bad a grand reception in Pitts burg on Monday. He and . others deliv ered speeches to a large crowd from the balcony of the St . Charles hotel. He sketched bis' imprisonment from September, 1865; till his late liberation. In the evening he partook of a grand banquet at lonngson's on Smithfield street. The. last exploit of Governor. Bullock, of Georgia, is thus related by the Rome Commercial:. . ?. Bullock offered $1,000 for the arrest ,of Aaron, Lamb. .Lamb was arrested,, the thousand dollars paid,' and now, in less than- two months, the infa mous Governor pardons the said Lamb out bf jail "and 'it !.u not improbable that they, afterwards, divided the money. ,It now appears that the speech of Jef ferson Paviv & 'Alabama, about which some Northern papers have made such, an ado, waa -only reported in a Radical local paper, and in a garbled fosmr4-The re porter "fixed'it up." to suit Radical parly purposes... '"': V' :' . ,'" '. Hon. James M. Masch died at ten o'clock Friday evening, of general debility, at Alexandria, Virginia. He was the Mason of Mason and Slidell notoriety. It is to be hoped that-Grant will not become as dizzy while "swinging around the circle" this Summer as he did when he accompanied Andy Johnson. An editor is occasionally found in favor of re-nominating Grant On investigation it is - found they are all either crazy or holding office under Grant ...".., A oirrro man Grnni. Gsaht' rule" Centralised- Imperial ism." CUMULATIVE VOTING. The second election in Bloomsburg, Columbia oounty, Pennsylvania, under the cumulative plan of voting, took place last Tuesday week. . In relarring to the quiet ness of the election, the Bloomsburg Cb-Inmbian says : ' At no lime was there an observable crowd about the court house, and only 130 votes out of about 800 were polled. The reason for all this is to be attributed to the cumulative plan of voting. Six Councilmen and President were to be elected. . As parties stand here (nearly equal in strength), each could elect three and no more. Hence no motive for strife existed. The most complete harmony therefore prevailed. Both the political parties had agreed that the old Council should be re-elected. The Democrats yielded the President in return for which the Republicans yielded one Councilman. A working-man's organization wanted representation in the Council, and they obtained it in defiance of all political parties by cumulating (plumping) all their votes (six) on one candidate. They are, therefore, represented and satisfied because they have a special representative in a body of seven supposedly fair men. There are n sore heads, no regrets to be avenged in future. No favors were asked, for there were none to give, and none wanted or needed, in fact every bodv. or nearlv evervbodv. had their own way and no room is left for growlers. Is it strange that people approve a system that avoids all strue and renders un friendly feelings, chagrin and spite impos sible? JOHNSON AND GRANT. Mr. "C. C. Norvell, in charge ot ad- vertising United States loan," in an ad' vertisement of the new loan, now on the market, dated " Treasury - office, New York, April 15th," makes the following statement : , The reduction of the public debt since the cloee of the war of the rebellion, and the relief, at the same time, to the annual burden of interest, are as follows : Prineinal of debt. 1 41,7(18,995,275 Paid under Johnson suoausSTi Principal, March , 1869 42,4919,S04 raid under Grant - 8a3,0B3,C73 Present nubile debt .......$2,St,S1631 . "Paid under Johnson," $265,525,371; " paid under Grant" $223,083,673 - differ ence in favor of Johnson, $42,511,698. So, then, after all the Radical condemna tions of Johnson's administration, and all the Radical praises of the financial man' aeement of Grant we have the Radical admission that Johnson paid over forty two millions more of the public debt than Grant The defalcation of General Lawrence, recently pension agent in New York, ex cites no interest in official circles. Hav ing been a "member of the "Military Rine" which runs the President, of course, no such thing as pursuit or pun ishment is dreamed of. Besides, the Ad ministration regards a $50,000 swindle only a petit-larceny buaineua, unworthy of serious notice. When Bailey went off to Montevideo in broad day, with over a quarter of a million in his pocket of the people's taxes he was a favorite assessor ereat recrrets were expressed at his - misfortune," and it is said that he carried with him the sympathies of the Administration, in hi easy exile abroad, as one more sinned against than sinning. Th Secretary of the Treasury report some twenty millions to be due by defaulting collector of internal revenue, but nobody thinks of prosecuting these M loyal " men, who are now mostly en gaged in crying out Ku-Klux at the South, and serving as witnesses to prove how cruelly virtuous patriots are treated- Daha, the editor of the N. Y. Sun. was at one time editor of the N. Y. Tri bune and Assistant Secretary of War un der Lincoln. He ia yet a Radical, but op posed to Grant's re-nomination. He says : ' ' ' The masses of the Republican party will never consent to the renomination of a man who ha bestowed high offices for costly gifts, has thrust all his own and his wife's relations, down to third and fourth cousins, into responsible and important places, and has allowed his foolish old lather to trade in Federal offices at five hundred dollar apiece. Still less will they allow'the man to be their candidate who, without authority of law, ha dared to take part in the civil war in ban vo-mingo, and who has struck down the oldest and best beloved Republican Senator because he would not brcome a party to the usurpation and the swindle. Acoorsiso to account in recent for eign papers, great and determined resistance is exhibited in England against mak ing census return. A middle-aged man in Devonshire was fined five dollars and costs for refusing to make out a census paper for himself and his child, asserting that he did not know either his own name or his place of birth, and that he would not periure himself by making a false entry. In another case a gentleman, the possessor of considerable property, refused to allow the census of his household to be taken. Gov. Alcorn, of Mississippi, though a scallawag, has made a table of murder statistics, showing that, instead of negroes being murdered to any extent in that State, one hundred and seventy white have been killed by negroes during the last two years. .In some cases whole fam ilies, embracing women and children, have been butchered. This is the real Ku-Kluxing all over the South, and the lying scoundrels - of Congress know it perfectly well. . - . r J . A case ha recently been decided by the Supreme Court of Ohio involving the validity of subscriptions for church purposes. The general principle established is that after a church has incurred any liabilities on the strength of subscrip tions, the&e subscriptions are legally bind ing, in the case decided the subscription was for the payment of a church debt and the court held that the subscriber was bound to pay.:.. A subscription may be withdrawn before these is an indebtedness, but not afterward. The indictment against John M. West, for the murder of Seibert twenty-two years since at Columbus was nollied last week West's wife sacrificed her property to in demnify his bail. ' Since then he has resided in Texas. At the time the killing took place West was Jlerx in the Statesman omce, and Seibert a bookbinder in the same estab lishment. ' In a fit of passion he struck Seibert and broke his skull. Just before the close of the last session of Congress, a bill was passed to pay Nicholas P. Trist $10,000 for his services in negotiating a treaty with Mexico, some fifteen years ago. ' When Trist went to the department to get his money, he found that Butler had beeif there leforenim and ordered the payment stopped till twenty- five per cent aa an attorney fee, had been deducted. Obe of our cotemporariea notices the death ot an old subscriber, and touchingly adds : " We are sorry to hear of the death of any of bur subscriber who are prompt about paying up." . i The American Medical Convention ia in session at San Francisco. The attendance of members ia between, three and four hundred. Over two hundred from this side of th Rocky mountains. NEIGHBORHOOD AND STATE.

On Saturday evening, the 15th inst, Mrs. Uonstance, uving in the Westpor tion of Mansfield, heard a knock at the front door about 8 o'clock, and going out without a light, saw no one : not satisned, however, she procured a light, and going to the door, found a pacxage on the door step, which proved to be a new born female babv. onlv a few hours old. It was dressed in old-fashioned baby clothes, but of fine material, and was a fine, healthy looking child. Mr. and Mrs. Chas.

Eventually search was made and his remains found on Friday morning in the creek. - He was about 30 years of age,, and leaves a wife but no children as we learn.

MT8TEBI0D8 SUSPECTED FoCT, PLAY. Un the bans: ol Chippewa Creek, near a ravine, about three miles north of Smith' ville, a man who lives in the neighbor hood, on last Saturday week, found a black felt hat, which had a stiff brim and round crown, with a ribbon-band two inches wide. Inside of the sweat-band was se creted a quantity of greenbacks, the amount oi wnicn we nave not learned, ine nat looks aa if it had laid there, all winter. . What makes the case look mysterious is, that, near the same place, last fall, some boys who were hunting found a man's shirt, bloody, and in which were two holes. similar in appearance to those made by bullets, lhe general supposition in the neighborhood is. that some man has been foully dealt with or committed suicide. Wayne Vo. Meritocrat. On Monday last week. Deputr U. S. Marshal Merrick, of Van Wert arrested Mr. Wm. iiair, of .bucyrus, charged with passing counterfeit money.. I here ha been a large amount of counterfeit money principally fifty-cent fractional currency pieces, passed in this town of late. Circumstances pointed to Mr. Bair, who was visiting friends there, as one of the offenders. Complaint was made accordingly. and a warrant placed in Mr. Merrick's hands for his arrest Monday Mr. M. learned that Bair would return to Bucyrus on the express train which passes here at :la p. M. .Believing thia a favorable opportunity for making the arrest, he got aboard the train and nabbed Bair shortly after leaving the depot. Calling to his assistance ex-Sheriff Richey, they searched Mr. B., and found upwards of $40 in counterfeit National Bank currency on his person. These officer proceeded on the same train to Cleveland, where they handed the prisoner over to the J. t. authorities. Ul course we are unable to give Mr. Bair's ex planation of how he came in possession of this money, why he carried it, or what the evidence will be at tne preliminary exam.-ination, which takes place in Cleveland in a few days. Van Her. llmet. A TATAi. affray occurred in Mahoning county, 2 miles west of Berlin, on Wednesday night of last week. A company of men from Canfield, on a fishing excursion, and being well supplied with the "ardent," some time during the night (near 12 o'clock) report has it, when near the dwelling of a man named lice lilass, they concluded -to wake up the family and have some music They knocked at the door, and Glass asked who was there and what they wanted. ' They replied, "we want in ! Glass said they could not come in, and the outsiders said they would break in if the door was not opened. Glass said if they did he would shoot them. Nat feanng his threat a man in the crowd named Gillespie, a peddler from Buffalo, broke ' open the door and bounded in, when Glass immediately shot him. the ball entering his side and coming out at the opposite thigh. ' The wounded man, in the melee, drew his pocket-knife and cut Glass in several places, after which he wrenched the gun from his hands, and aimed a blow with it at Mrs. Glass, but fortunately missed her.

His brother, who traveled with him, but was not of the company, took home the corpse. - The deceased had been but six weeks manned, it is said. lhe affair occasions both excitement and indignation. Glass was acquitted by the law, but public opinion holds the men who assaulted his house m the night time, as guilty. The above are the facts as we have been able to gather them. Repub lican.

The question of the erection of one was agitated, but it waa not until January of that year that we determined to "rise ana build.'.' The last services in the old sanctuary which our fathers built, and in which we had enjoyed so mnny precious seasons of worship, an J which had been the birth place of so many souls, were held on Sab- Dam, sist oi Marcn, inc., ana on tne morning or tne next any ire worn oi tuning down the house commenced. In May the work on the new house was commenced. On the 18th dav of aucrust.lstiT. the cerner stone was laid with appropriate ceremonies. Our services were held from April 18f7, to the Siibbath of January 'ash, 1S7, in the Union Seeool Hall, with the exception cf a few SabHaths ia which they were held in the Opera House. The time intervening between leaving the old churoh. and the dedication of this house has been much lenrer than we exnected. But thia season of waiting has not been without its advan tages; we have maae some advances I trust, i building up the true temple of God During all this pertoe no divisions have sprang 4ip tq disturb.

There is one thing, however, which comes in to strike a note of grief in onr common joy. It is the remembrance of those dew forms and laces that were with us in the closing servi cea in the old house, but who are not with us aa we enter the new. Their tears fell with ours on the day we offered the last prayer and sang the last hymn in that old heuee, but we don't hear their voices in our songs, nor see ;thelr faces today. Some of them have gone, "into the building of God, the bouse not made with' hands, etern:il in the heavens." Blessed are our dead.

Mr. Lynch said people on north Plum, and North streets were anxious to have the improvement done as speedily as pos sible, tie thoueht no chance in the erade could be safely made; Mr. Dumoulin had built on the hill with a view to the erade now fixed, and a change would make the Cuy liable. Mr. Sehaefer spoke with modesty about .North street, tor he would have to pave over 300 feet, but he wanted the grade done, and these improvements properly made with a due regard to a general grade over the city. Mr. Cook visited those streets ; feared the prade established required too' much. and it would damage persons, and might involve the city in damage. Mr" Stabler was opposed to grading those- streets tin we naa tne money to ao it.

Our enercetic Music Dealer and leader of the Q. A. R. Band, Thos. F. Kirk, is around soliciting contribution for the purpose of getting np a Grand M usical tourna- ment, to come off in Canton, on or about the 20th of June. Mr. K. want to make inis tournament one that will eclipse any ' thing of the kind ever got np in'this State. . and in order to do so proposes to offer very; large premiums, as follows- ' ' ' ' " a.1 r?mium $500; 2d Premium, $300, 3d Premium, $100; and $50 to the ber Drummer in the United Statee. ;c . y '?f He also proposes, if a sufficient amount is subscribed, to give an evening Concert in the Opera Wouse, in which the best operatic talent in the United States is to -participate, such as Pareppa Rosa, Clara Louise Kellog, or others af that clam We hope to see Mr. Kirk successful in ' his enterprize, as he will get np some ' thing that Canton will be proud of, and will bring to our city the best Brass Bands and other Musical talent in the United States. I 1 The Price of Gas. According to the ordinance passed last March by our City Council and to take effect on April 1st, the price of gas for private consumers in Canton is thre dollars per thousand feet. In 1867 tie Council passed an ordinance raising the price from three dollars to three and a naif, with the understanding that when prices of material, coal, labor, Ac., should come down the price of ens should get back to the old figure. We understand the gas authorities have made out and are collecting bills at three and a half a ' thousand and setting at defiance the authority of the City Council. We learn some of our law-abiding citizens propose to obey the ordinance of 1871 as they did that of 18C7. Sauce for the goose, sauce for the gander. If Sunday ordinances, cow ordinances, etc., oppressive as they are to some people and restraining of personal liberty, are to be enforced, why not the gas ordinance ? Are these laws that . oppress the poor and laboring people only tu uo cuiurceu I Improvements. The Hane building, on East Tuscara was street, has had another story put on it, and presents quite a creditable appearance. The third story is to be occupied by the Knights of Pythias as a lodge room. The fine 'residence of James A. Saxton ' on South Market street, is about completed, and is a fine ornament to that part The Wrought Iron Bridee Commnv ara extending their works, as will be sees by the large additions built thereto. W. C. Thompson is erecting a fine three-story block, on the corner of East Tuscarawas and Cherry streets. We understand it is to be used as a hotel. Work on the new Baptist church is progressing rapidly. The old Lichtenwalter property, oa West Tuscarawas street, is being "fixed up," it having been purchased by Mr. Thos. Patton.

The women, with clubs and bricks came off victorious on that occasion and rescued their cows. Our platform, is free white men, free darkies and free cows.
