Is there' i Democratic Party I There are a few'fossiliferous old codg ers who sling ink for newspapers, that write as though they really believed there was still in existence a parity or political organization styled the Democratic party. They have become monomaniacs on the subject, and. co system of reasoning is capable of reaching their, benighted and befogged . intellects, , except it coincide witn this benef in the existence and com plete organization" of a Democratic party i ume-nonored principles." If such a political Organization exists, it must certainly have seine distinguishing fea turessome certain political principles. What are they? ; "The Democratic party is in favor of the Constitution," say3 one of these old "fossils.-1 Just so. But then this assertion cf a political abstraction throws no light on the principles of the party.

Fron the inception to the final winding up of the great rebellion, tnis so-called Democratic party did have two weil denned principles -one was, the unconstitutionality of the war against secession ; the bther the Union as it was!'? The first was consigned to obliv ion when Grant squelched the rebellion ; the second remains as undefinable and in definite as ever. She Government fought bloody and terrible war and- spent mil lions ot treasure to maintain i the "Union as it was," while - this so-called Demo cratic party opposed the war; and by thus aiaing ana abetting treason, committed itself to the attempt to divide the Uniob, ana mate it what it was not, , , - xne- democratic party still lives!" y hat on r - Democrats still live, doubt less, but the oldDem&cratic party winked out, breathed its last on the" 3d of No vember. l68filfc had been virtually dead for some.
