duteX assume the duties and responsi-
hi Hties of such position.
I take this step deliberately, with
full knowledge of the responsibilities
of the position, and the consequences
thereof, and I take It under the most
solemn , sense of duty. I believe that
now the permanent peace of the coun
try is contingent upon the success of
the Republican party in retaining pos
: session of the National and State Gov
ernments, and I shall employ all the
power and influence I possess to make
such success lasting and complete.
Had the cardinal principles of the
Democracy been permitted to re-assejt
. themselves at the close of the civil war,

' ,tIonai basis' of the Democratic party
been allowed to obtain, all would
- have been well with the country ;
but, time-servers and trading poli
ticians sacrificed the Democratic par
ty on the unholy altar of their base
ambitions, and so maintained the Re
publican party in power until It has
engrafted its principles upon our insti
tutions and successfully fixed its policy
upon the country ; and now, that the
storm of Radicalism has spent itself, it
becomes reasoning men to calmly sur
vey the situation. After that mature
reflection which comes of impartial ob
servation of the campaign, thus far, I
choose not to adhere to the party of
Greeley, and I shall therefore support
Grant, as the choice between certain
peace and settled prosperity, and prob
able disorder and possible disaster.
The elevation of the tone of our jour
nalism, good government, the peace
and prosperity of the country, and the
cultivation of good feeling among all
classes of our people are among the
great ends I have in view.
As I move along in this position the
reasons and arguments that influence

these columns, and so for the present I
content myself with this simple an

It was the fashion of the Democratic The Fayettecille Eagle utters for its
party in the good old clays of its power party some unpleasant truths in an ar-
and purity to declare for measures, 1 tide published below. But the dis
covery comes too late ; the truth is un
fortunately uttered out of season. : Not
only has favoritism been too much
the rule " but the spirit of proscription
inside of the nartv of The Eagle has
x . .
been too violent and overreaching in
its effects. Men who had served their
section faithfully in the hour of peril,
have not only been ignored, but after
years of toil and sacrifice in behalf of
great principles of government, and
striving for the social peace and ma
terial prosperity of the State, have been
hounded down and pursued out of the
party they had essayed to serve.
i Gentlemen who served the Confed
eracy faithfully for four years have
tired at the conduct of the Democratic
party in recognizing as of superior
merit those who stayed at home profit
ably to themselves, speculating on the
necessities of the people, and getting
into high positions on the cry of peace
and union, when there was no peace
and union ; nor does public confidence
and favor at all increase for such men
who were for peace in war, but now
for war ia peace.

boldness, candor and eloquence of his

people of Vermont, where his efforts so
largely contributed to our heavy gains
in the recent election, we extract the
following! from The Burlington Free

sen to preside upon the bench. Up to
the time of the present campaign he
has clung to Democracy with unwaver
ing tenacity. Tlie Pittsburg Commer

section of the State has ever been con
sidered more consistent politically, and
that he carries with j him now into his
new party relations hundreds of voters
in the northern counties. In a brief
address at a soldiers' and sailors' con
vention in Franklin last week he said:
" I have been a Democrat so long as they
acted in harmony witlv my ideas. I am no
sudden convert, but made up my mind to
support Gen. Grant more than six months
ago, I have not so made up my mind from
personal reasons, but because I have looked
upon him as the best man to fill the position
not exactly in comparison with Mr. Gree
ley, but I have looked all over our country
in its present condition of peace and pros
perity, and,- while having great respect for
many good men in both parties, I have ar
rived at this conclusion, that General Grant
is the safest and best man in the whole
country to elect as President for the next

and refuse to be driven in the ruts of party
for mere office, and on exploded issues.
Our party has been, we fear duped by false
teaching. Men who do not represent our
voters have hurried forward on all occas
ions and controlled some of our counsels.
These were too often chance men, not pos
sessed of the honesty, calibre or sufficient
public confidence .to build up a party, or
steadily advance ours and the country's
interest. Many worthy men have worked
faithfully in our campaigns and in all our
party operations. -
i Favoritism has been too much a rule.
Men were puffed, flattered and put forth as
candidates and leaders who do not sympa
thize with, the mass of the people. Many
were honored thus who had earned no rep
utation, and who had done nothing for the
party. Some were put forward because
they needed the office to make a living.
Some caucuses were packed and manipu
lated to suit some old played-out politicians
who dared not offer their own names to the
public, but who got in some blank tool in
the shape of an obscure brother-in-law or
fellow church member,
i As a general thing the peoplo are deter
mined to repudiate this ring and dema
gogue business. It has received stern re
buke in several counties in this section.
We must take higher ground, more national,
and above all, we must base promotion on
merit. Let us have in view some practical
reform and go forward to its speedy and
faithful accomplishment. For the very life
of our party we must reorganize on this
new departure. We want to support no
man because he cannot live without office.
We want no man to lead us who does noth
ing at home.' We want no man simply be
cause hia uncle may have been Governor
once. We want only live, progressive self
made men at this hour, and these only can
we elect. Judge Merrimon was of the right
pattern, but one leader could not correct the
deficiencies of the many. We must O ver
come these faults. We must seize new is
sues, and new, more positive men, will lead
us to success. It is pure humbug to entrust
the management to none but old officeholders.

a thrashing into the bargain. j
The difference is altogether political, and
first had its origin in some personal and
slandering communications sent The Senti

against Mr. Drake, because tho latter saw
proper to support the Republican sido of
politics. Two articles were anonymous,
and Drake thrashed the calumniator through
