REDUCTION 0F-JT1IE ARM}
York Sun, of Jan. 28th:
Tho disbanding of threo-fourths of
our army as a useless and burdensome
charge on tho taxpayers of tho coun­
try win be resisted witli the plea that
the officers were educated and set
apart by the Government to military
service for life, and that a contract
existB to maintain them till they die
or resign in the receipt of pay, rations
and allowances. The claim of an
army officer upon tho nation is cer­
tainly no better than that of a post­
master or collector of customs. If one
of these officials lias served a dozen
years be does not dream of setting up
that service as a title to indefinite
employment. He does his work and
gets his pay. The cadet is sent to
West point, the door to his chosen
livelihood. He gets his education for
rtbthing.and when commissioned com-
irienees to receive income. The col­
lector of customs selects politics as
his livelihood, gets ‘into office and
draws his salary. The relation of
ebch to the public is that of work and
Wages, and is terminable by either at
^ill. Every officer in the army knows
t|iat. this is the nature of his contract
with the Government, and the enter­
prising and ambitious men in the ser­
vice are constantly acting on this
knowledge. After brief seasons of
post life on the border they resign
and go into civil employments.
I Let the army be reduced.

TUE COUNTY CON VENTION.
Tho County Convention to elect six
delegates to represent this county in
the Democratic State Contention',
which meets at Albany on the 18th
day of next month, is called to meet
at Lafayette on the 7th of March
next. The people.of this county owe
4 theJWHelves to attend the prima-
ries, and send delegates to the County
Convention that will fairly and faith­
fully represent them. This is no time
to go to the rear. Every Democrat
should attend tho primaries - and
b “plead his own case,” instead of
trusting to a few tp transact the busi­
ness for him«. Now is tho time to put
on the armor and prepare for the
com hig conflict, and if prudence
and energy are observed by tho De­
mocracy, from the primaries to the
State Convention, victory is Certain.
The State Convention will nominate
candidates for Governor, Secretary of
X State, Treasurer, State Printer, State
Superintendent of Schools, and Coii-
gvessman; and it will adopt a plat-
form of principles upon which these
candidates will ran.
If this convention is true to the
principles of the Democratic party, it
will opi»ose all ’monopolies of what­
ever form which are oppressive to the
people.
j
j •
The State Convention ought to de-
1 clare in favor of the enactment of
laws ljy the State Legislature regula-
■ ting charges upon railroads afld
steamboats, requiring railroads to
fence their tracks or be responsible
for «all damages done by them to
stock; and reducing the onerous fees
Of Sheriffs aud Clerks. Any platforp
Which does-not favor such laws will
I ’ not be satisfactory to the party or the
people. • The. candidates for office
must be men who have a good record
upon the monopoly question, or they
j. can not, and ought not to bo elected.
Hence the supreme necessity of a gen-,
oral attendance at the primaries.
The Reporter draws a “statistics”, or
two on us, and in it adds ill the grain
that parties rosiding at McMinnville
purchased during the past season at
St. Joe and throughout the whole
neighborhood [ as coming from that
point. ' It also mutters something
‘-wheel-borrow,” etc. All
about
of which is very unkind.
C ounty C ommittee .—Tho Demo­
cratic County Committee met at this
place on last Tuesday, and called the
County Convention to elect six dele­
gates to attend tho Democratic State
Convcntjon, which meets at Albany,
March 18th, 1874. Seven out“pf the
nine committeemen were present in
person. Everything was harmoni­
ous, and every member was sanguine
that success is more than? probable in
tho approaching campaign, eyen in
this county. The proceedings of the
Committeo appear4 in full elsewhere.
The coraniittee will meet to call the
County Convention to nominate coun­
ty officers on tho 7th.of next month.
