Mr. Symington looked at Ids hook keeper

took a leisurely look around him, to see

silver thimbles to a shy half-groivn miss.
Then Symington came, bustling back,

'Here they are, Mr. Bellair perfect

shine to look at. What do you think of
Mr. Bellair thought enough to select a
magnificent stone, and the style of sett

wanted to know, suavely.

fitting a ring on her tapering forefinger.

The color began to wane in her faoe

"I certainly mean exactly that. And I

She drew herself up haqghtily at that.
'Sir, yon insult me ! I have not taken

Iler dark eyes flashed with proud con.

The election next month will hand over
the nibiiiiii-tration Mii'l IcgUlai ion of the
X.iti'iii to the iH'mooratie part', or will
continue it in the h:mlsof the Republican.
Let ns try to understand just what this
means, mid what would come ot the one
result, or of the other.
The Republican party is in power in the
Federal Admini-tration, the Democratic
in the Federal Legislature. A Republican
President lias been an ob-tacle in the way
of carrying out the Democratic schemes of
legislation and repeal, in some things at
least, and the general policy of the Govern
ment, under the laws, is that which has
been fixed by the Republican party in
twenty years of rule. What has that pol
icy been ? It won't take long to state it.
First The suppression of the great, re
bellion. Second The, establishment of the consti
tutional doctrine that the Nation is inde
structible, and that no State has the right
to secede when dissatisfied with the Nation
Third The abolition of slavery.
Fourth The Riving the r-gh't to vote to
the treedmen, and their protection in their
civil i ights.
Filth The recognition or the sacredness
ol the National obligation in regard to the
Sisth A total and final refusal to recog
nize Southern war claims of whatever
Seventh The resumption of specie pay
ments. I believe we may say that in all these
things the policy of the Republican party
has been 'triumphant and that what has
been done can not be undone. A great
historical period in the process of the
Nation and of man had : been brought
nearly if not quite to its close, and' the
results are beyond the reach of counter
revolution. To quite finish the last
measure which I have named, the resmui
lion of specie payments, we have yet to
drop the legal tender quality of our Treas
ury notes j but that is only a question of
a little time, for it is logically included in
the sleps already taken in our National
finance. The expiring struggles of the
would be Greenback party demonstrate
by their feebleness that the practical sense
of the people has divided the question and
Is so well pleased with the existing pros
perity which Is based on solid values, that
no efforts to disturb It by unsetting the
currency will be tolerated. , , ,
The leaders ot the Democracy seem to
make haste to meet ua here, and say they
admit that these things are settled, and
that It is because they are settled that , the
work ot the Republican party Is done and
it should yield power and place to its op
ponent. Not quite so fast, if you please !
The doing a great work well U commonly
thought a reason lor trusting a political
organization with a continuing lease of
power, not lor turning it out. The sym

humanity which could carry a great or
ganization throng1! so terrible a striijigle
as that ot the final acts ot the anti-slavery
movement, even at the terrible cost of life
and treasure, i.rgties that the body of men
who did it are capable of understanding
their era. j
We may at least look to find among
them the intelligence and the spirit to do
wh it else the times and the country! may
need. On the other hand, the lack ot;syin
patliv with human progress, and the: utter
blindness to the judgment, of all Christen

other great organisation, in free and en
lightened Stn'es. should attempt to bolster
up and maintain human slavery at the cost
of rebellion, of war, ot gigantic and long
enduring public debt, refusing to recognize
the linger of Got or of late, predicting suc
cess for the wrong when it. was in the act
of collapsing, and looking on with the
gloomy faces of mourners when the right

shows that no immorality in political
dealing shocks the desperate appetite for
power. The ouly safety is in Meepless
vigilance. The oppositon will be no more
scrupulous about means of dividing the
North. - -
The Democrats take each fresh epistle
from Hancock with worse grimaces of
disgust. These letters are full of assurances
that the party, though bad. will be under
his perfect control. It is singular that this
point should need so much Iteration- .
It is positively.' asserted that the
"methods" which have heretofore made
the South solid for the Democrats, and
which are to be repealed in November,
will be resisted to the bitter cud in
Florida, North Carolina and West
Virginia. In Florida especially, where
the Republicans have a majority of
from 10,000 to 15,000, it. is believed
that the Republicans will be assisted by
the better class of Democrats to Itieuro
a fair count on the part of the State
election board Wouldn't it be fanny
to have a hole dug io the eolid South ?
Ii3i porta u l Facta,
There is no disguising the fact that
the "eolid South'? is the Democratic
party, and this being the case the poli
cies of the South will be tbe policies of
the Democratic party. That the Dem
ocratic party has not changed . in any
imKitaiit particular in ihe last 20 years
is pruven by the ntterances ot the jour
nals and speakers of the "solid South."
Wliat are these titteiaiices ? There is
no dihguise down South ; orators and
journals all agree there, and tliey an-
nounce in no unmistakable language
that "the principles ot the Democratic
party are the same that Lee and Jack
son fought for .during, the four years of
the rebellion." -Jfon have the declara
tion of Wade Hampton, great leader
in ti:e "soiKi. r-iouui," inat the same
pnnciples that actuated the rebel Gen
erals during the rebellion actuate,: the
Democracy now. The declaration has
been made time and again, m Congress
and out of Congress, that the Demo,
cratic party (the "solid St.uth") pro.
posed to continue the fight until all the
Constitutional amendments, and a'l
laws enacted for their enforcement, by
the Republican party are r pealed
Tlie Democratic parly, led, managed
and controlled by the 'solid South,"
propose to "rule or min.'' The bitter
i'ale engendered by the war, instead of
being healed by time and the kindness
exhibited by the North to so bitter a
foe, in pouring out money and supplies
when the South was so deeply afflicted
and lay helpless with disease, seems on
ly to have increased and made more in
tense that feeling ot hatted to theMYan
kees," the "mudsills of tlie North."
Running over with chagrin because ot
their failure to "count their roll ot slaves
on I5ut:ker Hill" as they had so arro
gantly boasted, with ai increasing hate
tor the Nirlh that prevented such a
consummation, would it be reasonable to
expect a righteous, equitable and hon
est adrninistrat'on ot this Government
at their hands ? Is it in the bounds of
reason to expect a "tqnare deal" from
such a source ? Is it possible for hu
man tiattiic, after years of waiting and
watching and scheming, and imbruing
its hands in human gore, and false
swearing, ballot-box stuffing, and the
commitment of crim?s innumerable, to
obtain tlie desired end control of the
Government for the oft declared and
reiterated ourpose ot wreaking its dire
revenge for bei:;g defeated in its pur.
pose ot destroying the Govornrwent
we ask, is it possible for human nature
to forego that purpose of revenge when
the opportunity so long and anxiously
looked for arrives ? If the Democratic
partj' the solid South should through
the election of Hancock, gain possession
ot the Executive and Legislative branch
es ot the Government, would she not
carry out her purpose ot securing the
Judicial, by increasing the membership
of the Supreme Court ? and then, hav
ing full and complete control of the
Government, would there lie any hesi
tancy iu carrying through every "re
form" 60 long threatened ? From the
record of the Democratic party ot the
past, can ar.y man believe that it will
forego any portion of its long sought
revenge ? No never. The election
of Hancock would be but the signal tor
heaping every indignity that human
ingenuity could contrive upon those
who aided assisted in . putting down
armed rebellion. .
