men of Concord and Lexington had led in 1775. Then it was that Governor Morton of Indiana came to the front with a masculine energy and burly weight of character and of will which was typical of the force which the Great West could throw into the struggle. Ohio was so situated with regard to West Virginia and Kentucky that the keystone of the Union might be said to be now west of the mountains. Governor Dennison mediated, like the statesman he was, between East and West; and Tod and Brough, following him by the will of the people in votes that ran up to majorities of near a hundred thousand, gave that vigorous support to Mr. Lincoln which showed the earnest nationality of the war Democrats of that day.-J. D. C. On Friday, the twelfth day of April, 1861, the Senate of Ohio was in session, trying to go on in the ordinary routine of business, but with a sense of anxiety and strain which was caused by the troubled condition of national affairs. The passage of ordinances of s
cretary of State, in 1862, was found to have given place to a Union majority on Governor of over One Hundred Thousand, Brough, 288,661; Vallandigham, 187,562. and, even without the Soldiers' vote, of more than Sixty Thousand. Brough, 247,194; VBrough, 247,194; Vallandigham, 185,274. And, though the majority on the residue of the ticket was somewhat less, it still ranged from 96,445 up to 97,479; while the new Legislature stood 29 to 5 in the Senate and 73 to 24 in the House. Yet the soldiers in the field — who had given 41,467 votes for Brough to 2,088 for Vallandigham — regretted that the election had not taken place before instead of soon after the sanguinary battle of Chickamauga; which, they safely calculated, had reduced Gov. Brough's majority byGov. Brough's majority by several thousand votes. Of the Western States, Indiana and Illinois chose only county or local officers this year; but the results as to these sufficed to show that a great revolution had taken place, and that their Democratic Legislatures, elec

To His Excellency, John Brough, Governor of Ohio: I beg leave to present to you, for preservation in the archives of the State, the accompanying enrolment of the Black brigade of Cincinnati, serving in the defence of that city in September, 1862. This brigade was not formed under the authority of the State; but its labors were in the defence of her soil, and it seems but proper that some memory of it should be preserved in her records. The enrolment is not complete. It has seven hundred and six names, (706;) the brigade numbered about one thousand. Some three hundred of these, in the beginning of its service, and before an enrolment had been made, were assigned to various duties, in camp, on gunboats, and in the city, separate from the rest of the brigade; and their names were never obtained. But the enrolment is complete as to the body of the brigade, who for three weeks, as a separate and distinct fo

an enemy of his country, he was arrested at his own house, near Dayton, May 4, 1863, under a military order, on a charge of treasonable conduct. He was tried by a courtmartial at Cincinnati, convicted, and sentenced to close confinement in a fortress for the remainder of the war. This sentence was modified by President Lincoln, who directed him to be sent within the Confederate lines, and, in the event of his returning without leave, to suffer the Clement L. Vallandigham. penalty prescribed by the court. On his release he went to Canada, and while there was the Democratic candidate for governor of Ohio in 1863, but was defeated by John Brough by 100,000 majority. He was permitted to return to his home, and was a member of the national Democratic conventions in Chicago in 1864 and in New York in 1868. While engaged in a suit in court in Lebanon, O., he was mortally wounded by a pistol which he was handling in explaining an alleged fact to the jury, and died there, June 17, 1871.

ets of the Army of the Potomac still occupy a post south of Culpeper C. H. The Yankee Government has information it is said, that about ten thousand deserters from its army are now in Canada, and in a destitute condition. The Ohio election was duly observed on the 23d October by the officers from that State--one hundred and sixty-three in number — confined in the Libby Prison, at Richmond. The poll-book and tally list have arrived at Columbus. Of the whole number of votes cast John Brough received one hundred and sixty-two--one was given for H. J. Jewelt and none for Vallandigham. George W. Longley, of Baltimore, employed by the Sanitary Commission, was captured by the Confederates, near Chancellorsville, on the late advance. Efforts are being made through Gen. Hitchcock to have him released. Bridgeport, Conn., for a long time a thoroughly secession place, was the scene of a Union victory on Monday--the entire loyal ticket for charter officers having been chosen
d fire and sword though the city of New York, and, in a carnival of blood and carnage, destroyed property and human lives — all in the name of Democracy. Are they ready for such other experiments? The agitators who have escorted Vallandigham from Canada are the same who put him upon the Democratic ticket for Governor last fall in the state of Ohio. It was this in suit to thousands of good men who, up to that period, remained in the Democratic organization, that swelled the majority for John Brough to more than one hundred and twenty thousand votes; that fired every column of Union soldiers in the army, and that allowed the heart of every sincere Democrat in other States with mortification and anger.
