Not Democratic Victories New
The Democracy are badly mistak
en if they think that their victories
in the fall elections was an indorse
ment of the principles of the Demo
cratic party, either Bourbon or Con
servative. These victories were de
feats to the Republican party
.through default as statistics prpve.
The elections were Republican de
feats anti-Butler, anti-Grant victo
tories. To the Independent Repub
licans belong the victories of the Op
position, and it is an unparalleled
assumption for the Democracy to as
cribe these Republican reverses to a
conversion to Democratic principles.
What principles for conscience sake
old or new, have the Democracy, to
win the confidence or support of the
people? The Democratic party i
the worst cxamjrfe of chaos that his
tory has preserved since creation. It
has no declared national policy
whrch is as much as to say it has
none, because its members cannot
unite on any well defined policy. It
ives, and it lives 1 because of
the corruption and decay
of the Republican party, not
for anv virtue of its own. It has ac-
cepted the principles of the Hepub-
lican party, won on the battle fields j uewspapers tunt wouiu auerue
of the rebellion, and why ? because ! gambling in any shape or form and
it was compelled to accept them or ' that would put a step to this nefari
perish. And what corrupt or unwise j ous and demoralizing business,
legislation has the Republican paity j Let tIC i)earm7ry Tlieir Demi.
made or moved that was not support
ed by the dmocracy? But little.
And what new principle do the De
mocracy propose? Not even echo nor
the wandeing breezes answer.
The Democratic party has no
national policy. In the South
and West it declares for free trade,
in some of the Eastern and Middle
Statos it wants a protective tariff,and
in some of the States it wants a
tariff for revenue. And on the
question of national finances it is
just as weak and chaotic as on the
question of tariff. And how does it
stand on the railroad question. It
would say, if it dared, that the rail
road companies have vested rights
and the people cannot regulate their
i it.. !l
commerce. Ana consequently it
declares that the people have no
right to regulate a monopoly of any
kind, notwithstanding these monop
olies have charters from the people,
given to the companies by the pro
pie for the good of the people. And
thus we see a great party great at
first for its virtues, next for its
crimes and then foritsimbecility-prc
scnting the singular spectacle of a
party without a single national prin
ciple. And the Republican party,
while it has given birth to the great
principles of personal liberty and a
truly paramount and national Gov
ernment, has nothing new to pro
pose. Both parties have fulfilled
their mission and new rmties are
wanted to carry forward the mission
of the Republic. Party discipline,
patronage and desire for continu
ance of power, constrict individual
freedom and retard national prog
ress. The Democratic party ought
to have been buried when it died,
and the Republican party has accom
plished its work, and wo need new
parties to bury the hatred and cor
ruption of the old. to give us fra
ternal peace and unity East, "West,
North and South and launch the Re
public forward on a new career of
prosperity and glory. We want new
and progressive parties to grapple
with and solve the great question?
which now affect our welfare and ex
cite the profound study of the great
est minds of the age. Within the
last two decades the United States
has doubled its population and trip
pled its wealth, and vast corpora
tionsthat had their birth in the throes
of the rebellion, have grown and fat
tened upon the nation's necessities,
and their overshadowing power
threatens to monopolize the rightful
heritage of the people and dictate
the policy of the Government. We
want a party now that will grapple
with these corporations and teach
them that the great national high
wars and the lands of the nation,
bequeathed to men by Heaven, can
not be monopolized, but are the
common heritage of the xcoplc.
A gentleman of this place
has presented us some tickets from
the "Texas Gift Concert Associa
tion," which were lately received by
Mrs. Adams near this place. The
"Association" wanted Mrs. A. to
send them $2 00 for the tickets,
which would entitle her to three
chances for a grand prize of $50,
000 (in a horn.) "We would warn
oar readers one and all against these
infernal lottery swindles. They are
gotten up generally by a lot of
knaves who in this way make a liv
ing off of a gullible public. Boys
and young men often send money to
these lotteries and so-called gift as
sociations and that is the last they
hear of it, and it serves them right.
The lottery business is a species
of gambling and no parent should
allow his children to engage in it.
Because some of them are indorsed
by men of respectabil'- and arc ex
tensively advertised by the press
does not alter the fact that the lot
tery is a gambling institution. And
here we enter our protest against
the secular press of the United
States. There is scarcely a non-religious
newspaper in the Union but
advertises for lotteries and the demor
alization of our youth caused there-
bv is fearful to contemplate. You
can scarcely take up a political or a
temperance paper without finding
an advertisement of the "Gift Con
cert" in Virginia, or the Gift Concert
in Kentucky. The parents of
families ought to refuse to take
Ill reffcrencc to the leader in last
Saturday's Pullet in in which the edi
tor undertakes to reunite the Repub
lican party, a friends writes us the
following pithy shot which will save
us the trouble of any comment on
'The loy stood on the burning deck
Whence all but him had fled."
J. Gastou, Esq., comes out in a
straight out Republican manifesto
and acknowledges the sad bereav
ment of all that used to be near and
dear to him. He says, "Let the
dead past bury its dead," which the
same is good for a man that has got
through with his job sooner than the
rest by having considerable outside
I help to do his family burying fur
him. As for Washington county she
has got done with the funeral busi
ness, paid the doctor, sex
ton and obituary bills, and her next
business will be to bury the remains
of her enemies and deodorize the
premises. You heep shabee, Jos-
A Word to Farmers.
Farmers would do well to feed
their wheat to hog3 now and thereby
convert it into cash. Pork is sell
ing in this market at six cents and
bacon at sixteen cents per pound.
At these rates by feeding their wheat
to hogs farmers could dispose of
their wheat at a dollar a bushel. Far
mers must diversify their farm pro
ducts more, and not depend entirely
on selling grain. Every farmer
should raise hogs and cottle or sheep
into which he can put his wheat
when he cannot get a fair price for
it. Fat cattle will'pell for cash ev
ery winte.x and at good prices. Stall
fed cattle bear a better price in the
market for beef than other kind.
The crreater resources that the
farmers have the less liable arc they
to be "cornered" by monoxlies and
they will get better juices for their
