and there b not vitality enough left to
$ave it, even if ' there was the disposi
tion for heroic treatment. After fif
teen yers of eoniued jule and com
plete Ttffestsion of jevery branch of
the Government, legislative, executive,
acd j.udjcial, this party has brought the
country to the very verge of bank
ruptcy and ruin, demoralized the whole,
public service, spread corruption every
where, encouraged fraud, exerted force
for political cuds, seized States and
governed them as satrapies, created in
famous Rings, 'squandered and stolen
the people's ujopey, sustained huge
monopolies by Gjjyessive t$aton. and
struck at tije liberty of the press for
exposing such iniquities. t
. The (Jistasc 'has become chronic.
it has grown into the system and can
not be extirpated. Mr. Wilson rccoai
met da that "its tried and trained V?4"
era should be brought to the front again,
and their wisdom sought for counsel
and guidance in ths effort to retrieve
what has been lost, and to restore the
party to its former prestige and power."
These tried aud grained leadeis aye
answerable for the utter disruption of

tnc party, liieir venal dealings in
Credit Mobicr, f'acific Mail, Memphis-
El Paso, and plunderings of allkinds

gations eveu with -packed committees ;
but the worst remains to be told of
them; and this can only be fully re
vcaled when the Opposition come into
Mr. Wilson tells his friends, ' hu
man rights have ever been the watch
word and inspiration, the guiding tar
and dominating idea of the Republican
party," and he advises them to take
no step backward. Human rrhts are
in no danger in the United States; and
sentimental theories will not answt-r to
meet the demand for hungry labor,
stagnant trad?, idle factories, prostrate
commerce, and st rving enterprise. It
is like offering ruffles to a man who has
no shirt. If the .Vice president can
f nor to be permitted to occupy the
chair. It is really a pleasure to see how
orderly and smoothly and harmonious
ly everything proceeds under his lead.
There ia neither break nor jir, but
steady, smooth, systematic work. It
is true he is splendidly supported as no
man in North Catoliua was ever before
supported. But much is due to bis
own individual influence, and the con
fidence be haa iopired in every one
with whom be has come in contact, and
many of them for the fust time. Gore
nor Reid ought to ank the victory of
to day as Pfla of the- greatest triumphs
of his life.

HENRY WILSON ON TIIK SITUA
TION. The Vice-President is very much
alarmed at the condition and the pros
pects of the Rcpuilican party, as in
deed ho well may be, yti twenty of
the tiirty seven States, most of thctu
heretofore Republican, in Jjie hands of
the Opposition, and the probility that
oihers will soon be added to the inw
posing column, in addition to this
mighly array of strength, the House of
Representatives it Democratic by a
large njajurity, ihid now controls the
Presidency, if by any contingency an
election by the peoplo should fail.
These f tern facts, and the di ift of
public opinion against Grautism, are in
deed calculated to excite the tears of
leaders who have had full swing for
fifteen years, who have made political
power su subset vicut to personal inter
est, and who at last are beginning to
rouse up from a long bebauch, on y to
realize thai the party is doomed and
their days in office are numbered,-
Henry Wilson, as a shrewd and practi
cal politician, has deciphered the hand
writing on the wall, and now seeks to
avert the impending catastrophe. Rut
it is too late.
In answer to an '-invitation to at
tend a conference of hading Massachu
setts Republicans to consider their du
ties in the coining election," Mr. Wil
8on has written a lottcr, which is al
most a wail of i.ljt jcai depair for the
future. He mildly admits that ''mis
takes have been made in the State aud
in the nation' and that ' some men
intrusted with official position have
proved thcmnc-lvc unworthy," These
pe gentle words for the crimes, cor
ruption, and outrages, against which
t-he peoplo luve revolted "o th and
South, East aud West, with a united
Yoice of indi nation.
Mistakes arc pardonable, since to err
is human. v If the Republican party
had noihing cls$ to answer for bat the
common blunders of ignorance or in
capacity, and a fw bad appointments to
office, there would haf e been no rero
lutiou and no Miffieient canso fnrone.
