In common with ma 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 prosperity, but the Radicals of Ithe item, he was engaged in an expensive Indian war; item, Mrs. Surratt was hung.

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 States. 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 per: Ninth. The resolution of Samuel J. Tilden not to be a candidate for the exalted place to which he was elected by a majority of his countrymen, and from which he was exclud ed by the leaders of the Republican party, is received bv the Democrats of the United 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 he has chosen for himself by the sympathy and respect of his fellow-citizens, who re gard him as one who, by elevating the stand ards of public morality and adorning and purifying the public service, merits the last ing gratitude of his country and his party, Tenth.

From this union there were any kind of crops, whether small grain, peas or clover to plow the land deep.

Then, instead of becoming tre mendons fellows among hard characters. as boys iu books always do when they have killed their man, they spent a year in jail, and yesterday were strangled on the gallows.

Possessing great delicacy of feeling, and a sensibility ten der and refined as that of a lady, his af fection, for his wife, chiidreu, relations and friends, always glowed with undying fervor, and whether as husband, father brother, friend or master, he was all the human heart could wish.
