ny good Democrats in this section and
elsewhere, we thought how was the
time to take up a good civilian states
man and elect him, but it may be that
the best course has been adopted, and
one that will result in the certain suc
cess of the National Democratic party.
We congratulate all good people on
the present condition of affairs, aud the
prospect that all sectional strife is to
be eliminate from the political can
vass of 1880.
The Democrats of the South were
once willing to take the notorious an-
'q ti-5outhern Horace Greely as ithe
President of these United States for
the sake of harmony and promoting

a great soldier with unrestricted power
in his hands to oppress his fellow

of gratifying his selfish ambition and

Fourth.. Subordination of the military to

of the civil service.
Fifth. The right to free ballot is t ha right
preservative of all rights, and must and shall
be maintained in every part of the United
i Sixth. The existing administration is the
representative of a conspiracy only, and its
claim of right o surround ballot-boxes with
troops and deputy marshals, to intimidate
and obstruct electors,and the unprecedented
use of the veto to maintain its corrupt and
despotic power, insults the people -and im
perils their institutions.
Seventh. The great fraud of 1876-77, by
which upon a false count of the electoral
votes of two States the candidate defeated
at the polls was declared to be President,
and for the first time in American history
the will of the people set aside under a
threat of military violence, was struck a
deadly blow at our system of representative
government ; the Democratic party, to pre
serve the country from civil war, submitted
for the time in the firm and patriotic faith
hat the people would punish this crime in
880. This issue precedes and dwarfs every
other. It imposes a more sacred dutvuuon
he people of the Union than ever addressed
he consciences of a nation of freemen. -
Eighth. We execrate the course of this
administration in making places in the civil
service a reward for political crime, and de
mand reform by a statute which shall make
it forever impossible for a defeated candid-
date to bribe his way to the seat of a usur

States with sensibility, and they declare
their confidence in his wisdom, patriotism
and integrity to be unshaken by the assaults
of a common enemy, and they further assure
him that he is followed into the retirement

and respect of his fellow-citizens, who re
