renders a man more virtuous and
more wise. An unmarried man
is but half a perfect being, and it
requires the other halt to make
t hings right. ; and it caunot be ex

lie can keep the straight path of
rectitude, any more than a boat
with one oar can keep a straight
course. In nine cases out of ten,
where married men become drunk

against the peace of the communi

was laid while in a single state, or
where the wife is, as is sometimes
the case, an unsuitable match.
Marriage! changes the current of a
man's feelings, and gives him a
centre for his thoughts, his affec

the affections, tin- example, and the
interest .of his better half keep him
from erratic course;-, ;:ml from fail

to which he would otherwise be

What the Dem-cracy w.ll do.
Under the head of " What the
Demoeiutic party will do wheTi in
power," the Xew York IVorld of
April 27th states some o&the re
sults that will foSloa Democratic
triumph in the next Presidential
election. It says :
I. It will limit the annual taxes
to 500,000,000 and out ofcthis
moderate revenue wi-'l apply $25,-
OuOjOOO toward the extinction
the public debt ; whereas, the Fed
eral taxes tor the last fiscal year
annum led to the enormous sum of
i tUl t. 25 3.44 7. '
II. It will revise ami reform the
system ot taxation so that this di
minished annual burden of 250,
000,000 will be equally distributed,
ihe present system not only over
loads the faithful horse, but ties
some of the load to his legs, Cuts
a part upon his head, makes hitn
drag a portion bv his tail, obstruct
ing his freedom of movement, and
causing him great annoyance.
The Democratic party wiil with- O
draw' every pound of the loafl
from his limbs and extremity's and
collect it upon his back where lie
can carry it wit h greatest ease. It
will, moreover, take good care thrtt
the taxes find their way into tho
public treasury, and not into the
pocket's of the greedy, grasping
III. The Democratic party will
rectify the abuses ot the present
banking system : extinguishing
monopoly by making the business
free Ui ail who comply withHhe
conditions; stopping the interest
on Government bonds while ill
pledge to secure bank circulation,
and guarding against a redundant
currency by cempelliu!? the bauktf)
to redeem their notes in .specie.
IV. It will revive our prostrate
shipping interest and restore to
rvinerican citizens their ioijrper
large share in the inleresU'- of na&
igatien, by free trade in ships and
the re-peal of the d-uties on articles
used in their const ruction.
Y. It will extend and 5mplete
the system of universal suffrage by
abolishing the term of icsidcnce
now required for lUdmSlization,
and give intelligent whit emi
grants the same advantages en
joyed by our colored population.
I'here is no reason why a thrifty
German who emigrates to Texas
and buys a farm, should not at
once be as favored a citizen as the
South Carolina negro wfto emi
grates to Texas in the same year
aid is employed by the German as
a label c'r. - o. ;
YI. The Democratic party will
faithfully fulfill all the obligations
created by the public debt in their
letter and spirit, and will secure to
disabled soldiers the full amount of
their pensions, without allowing a
dollar to be deducted for the fees
YH. It will repeal all laws
which permit the. Federal Govern
ment or any 'of its oiiieers to in
terfere with elec tions in the Spates.
Vilf. It will make it a high
misdemeanor, punishable, by dis
missed from tlie 'service, for any
officer of the army or9iavy to aid
in the suppression of donesti(j)
violence in a State unless the State
authorities have made a previous
application to the President for
it c 1 assistance, 111 conformity to
tne Constitution; or to mteifeie
for enforcing any Federal law un
less a Federal Jud e shall have
previously certified that tlie execu
tion of the laws is resisted by a
combination too powerful t?) be
overcome by the Marshal and his
1HJSC r. .
IX. The Democratic pnrty will
remove all the political disabilities
ami disqualifications imposed (for
pai t icipation in the late civil war.
Here are no flourishes, no bun
come, no vague, cloudy theories
which cannot be reduced t prac
tice. Ii' there is any Southern
citizen who does not think this ltet
of measures would bring relief
from and redress of present evils
and grievances, we eantfot respect
his judgment. And if, cm ' the
other hand, any Pepublit-.n insists
that the policy lu re sketched is ao
bundle of negations and dead
issues, he forfeits all claim to be
considered a candid opponent.
