Fort Wayne Weekly Democrat (Newspaper) - December 15, 1869, Fort Wayne, Indiana The Democrat. R. I it. I it Ulvi amp co.,dec. 15fbee Trade. The free Trade league have published an address in which they Assort that their Peculiar ideas Are being rapidly adopted All Over the country and they Appeal for material Aid that the agitation which has acquired such a momentum a Partite ulary i the West a May be pushed still farther Forward. Thoy declare that a Hundred thousand dollars now spent in agitating this question will save the country hundreds millions dollars. At the game time information from Washington states that the High Tariff men propose to open the canvass their measures before Congress through those infamous moans by which Badial congressmen Are bought and sold. The manufacturing Coal and Ore monopolist with nillion Singtho Market to bribe and corrupt will be As we pitted against the people and their interests. The free Trade movement although one Power and influence will a do amp a Short its object As Long As the country is controlled by millionaire Bankers bondholders Stock jobbers Gold speculators and the numerous rings and Comers that flourish in us Minatr. Grant in his message smiles upon the interests those protected by the tarriff and by Way consoling ride glances to those suffering from unjust discrimination advises Quot Cau. Tion against disturbing the Industrial interests the this is the Way discussion fair play presents itself to his mind. He is wholly in the interest the bondholders Gold speculators and protected monopolists. Instead being chief magistrate a whole people to is simply the coerced bribed representative a class who care Only for themselves. Those impressed with the righteousness the free Trade movement will find no Consolation in. Frant s message and Mast look to other than the Grant party for the Success their principles. Some those Peculiar gentlemen great Rich philanthropic undertakings similar to the raising the Avondale fund Are now projecting a scheme to hold an International fair at Washington. They Are no doubt impressed with the glories Boston s huge coliseum and the Money that flowed therefrom into the managers pockets therefore an International fair in other words a in thug Quot is in contemplation. The Success this enter poise a predicated upon the hypothesis that the fools who flocked to the Hub including the Modem Ulysses Are not All dead yet. The most striking impression in regard to this old quaint saying is shown in an Appeal to Congress to raise half a million by taxation for the project. Of count Congress the recommendation our Noble president whose favor it seems these in Tipri a gentlemen have already secured will at once make the appropriation. We ought to have a it big blow out Quot in the shape an inter National fair As Westem Farmers since Selling their wheat at ninety cents a Bushel Are is High q>irit3 for a visit to the capita let the appropriation be made by All Means it would be very in american to deny these enterprising projectors the profits they have already considered As so much made. Go with the appropriation and the tax Quot let Joy be unconfined Quot for it is easier you know Quot to pay a Large debt than a larger be Nhgia affairs. In order to give a our Cher lease Power to the Radical scoundrels who have been holding High carnival in Georgia Grant has been made a party in the conspiracy to still further Rob this unfortunate state her rights. In his message after a recapitulation facts relative to its re construction to says Quot the legislature met and prepared All the acts then required Thorn by the reconstruction acts Congress Quot and very lugubrious by mentions the expulsion the coloured members from that body 1-also in Mission some members Quot who Are disqualified by the third clause the fourteenth amendment to the Constitution. Casting aside All preference if he Ever had any for the White race. Grant farther recommends that Congress should enact Quot without delay Quot a Law authorizing the governor Georgia to Convene the members the legislature originally elected by the carpet baggers to exclude the White members who Are too honest and faithful to the people they represent to take the Iron Clad oath and give Tho negroes their seats. The Georgia papers explain Tho whole this a Laceful conspiracy. From them to glean Tho following facts the Republican state Central committee held a caucus at Atlanta the 1st inst., and resolved to attempt to induce Congress Quot to take a snap judgment upon Georgia before the legislature could its own motion satisfy the Aenis Gasoff Curgie Shley reseating thu negro members and ratifying the fifteenth amendment Illey agreed to ask con Gress to annul All legislation so far had under the Constitution 1867, put the state under a gubernatorial dictatorship with Bullock As supreme recon Star actor so that backed by the military Power Quot the negroes should be reseated and the legislature purged every Man who cannot take the recons acted test this is exactly what Tho caucus resolved to ask the 1st december it is exactly what president Grant recommends the 6th december. Governor Bullock departed for Washington immediately after the caucus and that he has had Gool Success in his Mission the president s message abundantly proves. Before he left Georgia Bullock issued an extraordinary proclamation reciting at length numerous so called political outrages committed a Tang the past fourteen months7forhfpuoso taking it to Washington and displaying it there As evidence that a state intolerance towards radicals and republicans exists in Georgia none these outrages have any political bearing at All and even Foley who visited Georgia a Short time ago was so impressed with the peaceful and harmonious state things there that he printed the other Day in one his papers an Appeal to Congress to let All the Southern people alone for the future the ground that they were doing Well enough and that All further interference with them would be prejudicial and injurious but the conspiracy has succeeded As far As Tho president is concerned and the Congress which has just assembled will be equally As subservient. A demand will undoubtedly be made that the whole work reconstruction be done Over again to add new life and vigor to the Quot Loil Quot scamps who infest Georgia. These political scoundrels and adventurers Are All in the interest Grant s j residential aspirations for 1872, and this no doubt forms the milk in the Cocoa nut which inclines the Modem Ulysses to smile the misfortunes a sister state. Surely in this connection that old familiar exclamation Quot How Long lord How Long Quot has a significance More than Ordinary importance. The following from the Chicago times is truly suggestive and worthy proper reflection Quot the Secretary War s estimate for army expenses during the next fiscal year a $34,536,031, besides $12,000,000 for fortifications the army Force is stated to be 52,000 men. Now if any Man can give to the country a Good and sufficient reason Why a standing 62,000 men hould be maintained at a Cost to the inhabitants the country Over $40,-000,000, it is surely his duty to do so. One would naturally expect to find some reason stated by the president in his message to Congress but. Grant has none to give. If he says the condition the country should be such As to justify a further concentration troops the whole amount asked for May not be expended in the name common sense what is there in the present condition the country to require such an army concentrated otherwise Quot must the hard earned millions taken from the people in the shape taxes be continually squandered a Sot political knaves simply to afford them places Power and prof pc it is about Timo Trio people were answering this question. If there is one spot Earth More Notorio is than another for unexampled tests radicalism it is South a Trolina. Carpet baggers do most there abound. It is the earthly Paradise the rogues renegades and Ragamuffin who give tone and character after their kind to radicalism in the Southern states. Here in Tho language a Charleston paper May the Radical Brethren Crown their Brazen fronts with the i convertible currency the nation Here May they stuff their pocket with Bills and Bonds and no one say them nay. They May pilfer and Pec Ulato cringe and bluster lie and grow Rich. Call them but radicals and they laugh at bolts and bars mock at judge and jury and recognize no other Law than their own Sweet will awl pleasure. A Pajtis correspondent says at the sitting the corps la gis Latif Henri Rochefort Rose and demanded that the National guard be ordered to guard the Hail the corps Logi Latif in future for Tho Protection the members. Tho demand took the chamber by Surprise and created an extraordinary sensation. Expressions Aston i Mont burst Forth from All parts Tho Hall followed by cheers which Wero answered by cries derision and disapproval. Tho opposition members generally applauded but the majority protested against the demand and the demonstration made in its favor. Sui Wieb the Clai Isio Radical who assures himself that he is the american Demosthenes occupies his seat in Wrath whenever the interests White men Are to be Senatori Auy considered. But move a question having Sambo for its object previous otherwise and Sumner is to his feet pouring Forth those Swett guttural accents which remind one music a Bass drum. The other Day he offered a Resolution calling upon Tho committee military affairs to consider whether any further legislation is needed to secure for All coloured citizens who have served in Tho army the United states Complete Equality with All other citizens in Tho enjoyment the military Bounty. He remarked Quot that he had understood that a statute existed by which former slaves who had served in the army the United states were excluded from the e enjoyment the military Bounty. As it had been the object to give equal rights to All who served under our Flag he asked the Early attention the committee military affairs to the Complete accomplishment that in other words. Sambo who fights nobly particularly in the District Columbia election Days and indulges in the innocent amusement driving White men away from Tho polls accompanying the recreation with riot and bloodshed must not Only have equal rights with the Gallant White Veteran but come in for special favors As Tho Quot Ward the such is Sumner and verily such is radicalism. A member from Illinois has a Bill in hand which he win soon introduce in Congress making it a Misdemeanour a penal offence something worse for any officer the government to accept presents gifts from any person persons whatsoever. This will appear unto Ulysses like Quot hark from the Tomb Tho doleful even mrs. Grant Plain Good woman As she used to Quot be is catching Tho glittering whims fashion and becoming As. Much beguiled by its encroaching brilliancy As the wife our late lamented. Already magnificent gifts Are pouring in upon mrs. Grant which she accepts will a grateful smile. Such Are the bewitching Avans Washington society. A Jissi pm paper gives Tai Jan portrait a Carf it it Bagger which we Hope none our Republican readers will consider personal Quot his head is about As Large As a Coon a and recedes so rapidly from the Root his nose that if a Stream water were poured perpendicularly upon his brow More it would run off the Back his head than off his face. His nose looks like the butt end a blood beet and his eyes like augur holes in Muskmelon no. Or. A Ingriam a member Congress from Ohio is very much opposed to any investigation the recent Gold operations in now York with a View to ascertain Tho cause and those con corned in Tho speculation. Or. B., evidently is afraid the accusation that. Grant was mixed up in Tho affair win prove too True and thereby place Bim and Tho Radical party in an unenviable position. If Radical congressmen thoroughly believed that. Grant was innocent Tho charge they would not Only invite hut press investigation. Tho ridiculous manner in which Corbin. Grant s brother in Law figured in Tho speculation Tho mysterious Check he had in his Possession followed by the Onecy Ance $20,000 Worth City lots to mrs. Grant Havo an ominous smack which makes lugubrious Bingham More lugubrious than Ever. To sees in it undoubtedly an apparition As huge if not quite so horrifying to his own conscience As the ghost the poor innocent woman whose blood is upon his hands. We Havo seen it charged that it is Tho costume Revenue officers in some our collection districts to make their Little Quot perquisites Quot by charging fees for their services in making out papers which the Law requires tax payer to furnish. A letter addressed to. Delano in regard to the matter brought Forth a reply which is very explicit. He says Tho practice cannot to sanctioned by the department and must not be permitted to prevail and that Quot All internal Revenue officers who have taken Money for such purposes will at once be dismissed from Delano further says that any persons who have been thus swindled May reclaim the amounts already paid by them. The people interested will be glad to know that measures have been taken to break up these Petty Fraude and that such Revenue officers As have been engaged in them will if reported by those whom Thoy have victimized be deprived any further opportunities swedling tax payers whose burdens Are heavy enough already. There were some rather queer proceedings at the session the women s National suffrage association in new York the such inst. The remarks several the lady speakers were so Broad and so ardently in favor Quot free love Quot that the modest part the Audi Cnoc made a Stampede from the Hall. Miss Norton thought a woman was better off with six husbands than with one she could not love and. Heber denounced marriage As a crime. Before adjourning the association very naturally passed a Resolution endorsing the Tribune. Greeley was present and smiled a response. The opening the ecumenical Council was one the grandest spectacles the ago. Though the weather was unfavourable enormous crowds filled Tho streets and the Vatican and a procession unsurpassed in pomp and magnificence headed by the Pope and followed by Sevon Hundred Bishops from every Quarter the Globe marched amid ringing Bells and thundering Cannon to the place meeting. The galleries the great Hall the Council were occupied with the sovereigns and princes in Rome. No european Power was specially represented however. An eminent writer in new York who clings to a High Standard orthodoxy is hard Hoosier Dom and says that an Indiana divorce is a laughing Stock in new York. This As it May without uttering one word in Defenso the purity our state we can scarcely repress a risible from taking Possession us when we think How Long Tho eminent gentleman has lived in new York and failed to see in Tho papers and Little tin signs sticking up in All parts the Metropolis assuring discontents that Quot divorces Are obtained hero promptly without publicity Quot Tiik marvellous Foat telegraphing to England the entire a message the president was accomplished by the British Cable. Tho message appeared in Tho London journals simultaneously with its publication in the daily papers the United states. Much interest attached undoubtedly to the president s views upon the Alabama claims question. The pall mall Pasette Flat tors itself that upon the whole the message is Friendly but reiterates the belief that England will do no More than she has done and certainly will not make an apology. During the very Brief session Congress several very sensible Bills have already been introduced. Among these is Tho one providing for the abolition the franking privilege but to have no Hope it will be carried. It is altogether too convenient for Radical members. Another is Tho Ono Intro Wood by. Trumbull making it an offence punishable by a Fine one thousand dollars for any member Congress to recommend a party to office unless requested to do so by Tho president but this also As a matter course will be tabled. Evidences the existence the Mound builders in Tho Mountain ranges Colorado similar to those in Montana Utah and Nevada Havo lately been discovered. Upon the extreme Summit Tho Snow Range Aro structures Stone evidently ancient origin and hitherto unknown unmolested. They comprise Large numbers Granite rocks and Many them As Largo As two men could lift in a position that could not Havo Boon Tho result Chance. Thoy were placed upright in a Lino conforming to a general contour the dividing Ridge and frequently extending in an unbroken line for one two Hundred Yards. Tho Walls and Mounds Aro situated three thousand feet above the Timber Lino. It is therefore hardly suppose Ablo that they were built for altars sacrifice. They Wero not Largo enough for shelter Domenco. Tho More probable supposition is that like Tho larger Mounds Montana elsewhere they Wero places be culture. A wedding in High life has lately taken place in Washington. This does not create any special wonder but it carries with it a tingling sensation in the Misc genuine Way that in a very persuasive manner shows the Shadow future events if radicalism is permitted to continue in control Tho country. Tho marriage viewing it As a business transaction consisted in part Monsieur Paul Geraud a Frenchman Good position brother in Law to Yio portuguese minister and a Youmg lady color culture and fascinations by the name miss Nancy b. Worm by. The affair is described As having been imposing and so far As possible under the Peculiar circumstances Couleur do Rose. The message Quot our Noble Long Branch president Quot is freely commended by the Radical press. Some them it is considered far ahead anything Washington Ever undertook to do eclipsing in diction the elegance which made Jefferson so famous As a writer. This is obvious. He is the Only american president who has issued a message making no allusion to Tho constitutions ignoring the old instrument entirely. This is what makes Ulysses so great in Radical estimation. They hate the old Constitution As virulently As a mad dog dreads a Stream pure Limpid water. It is stated the authority a scotch paper that lord Clarendon is about to reopen the Alabama claims question. The London times thinks that such Able jurists As. Geo. Tick nor Curtis and. William m. Evarts Are capable settling the Legal Points involved. If. Grant would take the suggestion kindly he would be Wise but the parties Are not Radical enough in politics to suit manager Sumner and who i Sumner takes snuff the Sphinx has got to sneeze. An appropriation $15,870,531.60 for the support the Navy was made for the year ending june 30,1870. According to the report Tho Secretary this win fall Short about five millions. This is a Little Grant s Economy. The amount which the Secretary Calls for for the year ending june 30, 1871, is $28,205,671.37. To simply Call the attention taxpayers to this Little display Economy. On and after december 13th, the now York Democrat one Tho spic Iest papers in the Metropolis will be sold for one cent. It will not to decreased in size but will be More than Ever alive in its news gossip items and editorials. Quot Brick Quot Pomeroy is bound to revolutionize the newspaper business in now York.

If English railways have More solicitude for Tho safety their passengers the american ones make the most Money. Our roads came about twice As much per Milo last year As Tuo English roads did. Tiie people Washington Are much chagrined at the omission in the me s Sage any reference to affairs in the District. It is quite at variance with the usual custom and they fear that the president favors the removal Tho capital to the West. So far no step has been taken m the latter direct son in Congress and the movement is less formidable than it was supposed to be. Govern Bullock s method escaping impeachment is entitled to the credit thoroughness. He moves to have the conservative majority the Georgia legislature counted out and a suitable number negroes Quot flawed in Quot and All by act Congress. Or. Trumbull s new Bill is falsely denominated Quot a Bill to define the jurisdiction the supremo court in certain cases Quot whereas in fact it is a Bill to destroy Tho constitutional function the judicial Power in certain cases.

Troops Wero put under arms and the president telegraphed to. When Tho truth was discovered. Tho prefect at Callow received an apology from Tho commanders for not noting him but the president demanded an explanation and Tho Consul has reported the facts to Washington. A a Koi Antic Story. A correspondent the Boston journal writing from Concord new Hampshire tells the following romantic Story Quot one Tho happiest thanksgiving dinners in now Hampshire yesterday was in one our Rural villages not thirty Miles from Concord. It was the first reunion for Many years several generations a certain family. At Tho head the table sat the venerable Grandfather. Now eighty one years age. He had come alone thousands Miles from Tho West to meet his descendants. After dinner he told the Story his life. Some its main features to have gathered for this letter. The hero Tho Story was born in the state new York and passed his youth a Fertile farm in Tho Valley the Mohawk River. In the course Timo he was engaged to to married. Before the nuptials were celebrated he became interested in another Young lady who also proved to to engaged but Between them there soon sprung up a Strong intimacy which the part both bras carefully concealed from Tho other parties concerned. The most solemn pledges had been made and they shrunk from the idea breaking their plighted vows. In vain they waited hoping that something might occur which would cause the other parties to give them release from matrimonial obligations. At length Thoy met As they supposed for Tho time and parted. Quot Tho Man married and immigrated to Tho West and the woman was United in Hymen Al Bonds and settled the shores Oneida Lake. These events happened nearly fifty years ago. The Western adventurer proved a Good husband and a kind father and grew into Middle age a widely known and influential citizen. Prosperity attended him and wealth and Many friends came to him. After Twenty years married life his wife Vas taken from him hut children remained. And by several his children married and Ono Thom came to new Hampshire. Years passed but he never again visited the East. After repeated invitations from his relatives to concluded a few months ago to spend with them in jew Hampshire Tho then approaching festival thanksgiving. Quot to reached Albany at the Timo the bight Tho late Groat food and travel being much interrupted he stayed Over a few Days and accidentally met some old acquaintances his youth. During one conversation there was casually mentioned the name her from whom he had Many years ago so sorrowfully parted. Eagerly he asked if she were yet alive and when answered in the affirmative tears came to his eyes and he told his friends that he must at onco set out in search her. To was told where she was living six months previous and thither he went with All to Saibin in Jinn but so waa Joat there. Only a month before she had gone away. He Learned the direction it was supposed she had taken and again with All possible Speed he pushed Forward. But Fate seemed against him for farther and farther away seemed the object his search. Quot at last after he had travelled hundreds Miles going often by night As Well As by Day he found the love his youth. The Story the woman was one Long toil and suffering. After ten years wedded life her husband had died lingering disease leaving her with three children. One after another these treasures were claimed by death until she was left alone and friendless. In such circumstances she was found by one who renewed the pledge his Youthful affection and asked that to Hor happiness to might devote the remainder his life. Such was the Grandfather s Story at the Happy thanksgiving dinner and he closed by saying that one week from that Day he was to be married who had been so Long lost. Head with the Stock a gun Stone similar weapon. No clue to Tho Mux i Derer was Ever discovered the Frenchman Huffe never been in the country since. The supt now is that he committed a trim Der that reflecting the for his crime he became insane the Wood and resided there since that the wild Man that has lately seen and the French settler Thweni seven years since is one and the Sam person. It is Well known that Manj years since the majority Tho indians Quot who resided in the big Sioux Valley were account the Scarcity game compelled to go further West and As it is Only within the last few years that the Section country alluded to has become settled it was very possible for a Man to live there without being discovered any person knowing his whereabouts. The whole Fahir is wrapped up in such a singular mystery that we refrain from comment surmise until we can speak intelligently the subject. Cons17jnpxives. In Boone county Iowa the 20th ult., a Young Man named Emory Ackerman while crossing Tho country with his gun fell into an old deserted Well thirty feet deep covered with Rotten plan los and Earth and hidden with Snow and was found the sixth Day afterwards dead. He had scratched an account his Accident a Stone at the Bottom and it is thought died the fourth Day after falling in. Tho employees the Utah division Tho Union Pacific Railroad two Hundred Miles at its West end have organized a secret society to which nearly every Man belongs whose object it is to rid the stations and the Road the thieves gamblers and murderers who now infest the line.

Vanduson recently came from Tho Oil to bar go to Blini Leaota Aad die. Prom the St. Panl press.3 it is surprising How Wiy invalids who come to my Nesotas to get Relief from pulmonary troubles think that the fact being in the state is a sufficient to cure them. They sit Over hot stoves in poorly ventilated smoke clouded rooms. They sleep in airtight apartments. They play billiards till late hours. They talk themselves hoarse. They take Long rides at the most unfavourable hours the Day. They Are irregular about their meals. They Call upon a doctor once and neglect him thereafter. They eat food that ruins their stomachs. They soak themselves with whisky and generally end up with a terrible Haemorrhage. How utterly useless to come to Minnesota unless one expects to breathe its pure tonic air. The invalid who is fit to come hero at All ought to be in the open air at least five six hours each Day. Walking May be too severe exercise but Riding always does Good. Oxygen is what be consumptive needs. It is for the want this that he wastes away and Dies. Day and night the diseased lungs Quot the weak lungs demand pure air. It is in vain to Cadi upon Minnesota to help one in poorly ventilated and Over heated apartments. One May As Well stay at Home East South.

From the Sioux City times dec. 1. We Are indebted to. Thompson who resides Tho Dakota Side the big Sioux about fifteen Miles Northwest this City for the particulars the facts which we Are bout to narrate about one month since n Farmer named Evans who resides a few Miles North. Thompson was engaged in hauling firewood from the Timber the big Sioux when he was startled by seeing what at first glance appeared to be some wild animal bound out from a hollow log but a few Yards from where to was standing. A close observation Tho object Whilo it was de camping satisfied. Evans that it was a wild Man he immediately made Pursuit but Tho rapidity with which the wild Man ran added to Tho thickness the Woods soon put him out either sight Roach. Sir. Evans shortly afterwards returned Home and informed his neighbors his adventure and what to had soon. A Small party Well mounted men started Tho next Day the Trail Tho wild Man. The party first ransacked Tho Woods in the neighbourhood. In a secluded spot entirely obscured from Ordinary observation by the thickness the underbrush they discovered a fissure Between two rocks. This fissure penetrated into Tho rocks about eight feet the top was a Large lot underbrush limbs Trees and several pieces portions hides animals. There Wero no indications that there had been a fire kindled any where near the place but from the pieces rags Long grass and other matter found the ground they wore satisfied that it was the habitation Tho wild Man. Not being Able to Soo any thing Tho object their search Thoy went to their Homes. A few Days afterwards another party horsemen started out the same Mission As their predecessors and with More satisfactory results. About three clock in the afternoon while following up a Ravine a few Miles from the place where Tho strange being was first discovered Tho party wore attracted by Tho Barking Ono their dogs. Immediately afterwards the wild Man crossed an open space closely followed by two Tho dogs. Tho men put spurs to their horses and for a Short distance gained rapidly the object their search but coming to a deep Ravine Gully skirted either bide by underbrush their Progress was impeded and during Tho delay caused by etting out their situation Tho Man escaped. Since that Timo to has not been seen. We understand that a party gentlemen from this City propose starting out in a few Days for the purpose catching this Man rather nondescript dead alive. We Hope that e Effort will to spared to take him Aliv and uninjured. Prom a conversation Avith. Thompson we Loam that this singular being is entirely covered with a seemingly heavy coat dark coloured hair Mijat to a As agile As a cat and As Fleet As a dear. Old settlers in the Region where Tho wild Man has been seen state that about Twenty three years since a Frenchman with his wife and three children settled upon a piece land Tho Banks Tho big Sioux.
