not know what we may be the next.

I see that the last issue of the Democrat,
with its "mulatto figure-heads" at the top
of its columns, "goes" for "Brick" Pome-
rov. He was a srood fellow as long as he
swallowed the Democratic hog. but as soon
as it sours on his stomach he is a villain
and a scoundrel, according to Democratic
authority. Democrats believe in ' free
thought, free speech and a fiee press," just
so long as one thinks, speaks and writes
to suit their tastes ; but whenever a man,
and especially a Democrat, undertakes to
think, speak or write accordiug to his own
ideas of right and wrong, and fails to act-
in accordance with the commands of tle
Democratic nabobs and grand moguls, then
the free press must be muzzled, free speech
must be stopped, and free thought becomes

plan to a millwright, who, after examin
ing it, asked him wliat he thought would
be the result In case the saws should meet
in the middle of the log. "Indeed,1' the
man replied, "I never .thought of that."
The millwright told him such a mill was
Impracticable, and that he considered him
a "big fool." The Democrats are very
much like the msn who wanted the tnill

Gov. Tilden on one end of their ticket, saw
ing with hard money, and Gov. Hendricks
at the other end, sawing with soft money,
and have started them toward each other,
without stopping to inquire what Will be
the result when they meet.
At the next election the people will say
to them, as did the millwright to the man
who wanted him to build the mill, you are
"big fools, it won't work."

The New Minister. The pastor of the

year. Rev. S. S. Van Dersal, was, by the
late M. E. Annual Conference, sent to
Forest Arover while Rev. J. F. DeVore
was assigned to the Albany charge. We
part with brother Van Dersal with regret,
as he is not only an able minister of the
Go'pel, but a faithful one, and, during his
stay among us, has won the fullest esteem
of this people. We wish him. in his new
field of labor, a more profitable and pleas-
anter year than his most sanguine antici
pations may lead him to anticipate. Rev.
J. F. DeVore is a most successful minis
ter, a gentleman of high culture and most
liberal attainments, and the Methodist so
ciety of this city feel most fortunate in
having been so greatly tavored in his ap
pointment. We welcome brother DeVore
