Tart? Nici&Kames. It is a littlo
singular that men should bo so resent
ful at tho application of j nrlinim nick,
natnofl. Some twenty-five j-enrs ago,
tho Whig?, with the intention of be
ing very severo nnd provocative, cuff
ed the Bemoeirats "Locosfocos." By
wny of retort, the unterrified called
tne Whigs ttoe "Silk-stocking and Kid
glove Party." In t'nna they had tho
Republicans to contend! with, nnd
theeo they nick.numed "Black llepnb
licans " nnd "Nigger-worshipers."
When an advocnto of tho largest free
dom had the misfortuiio to bo novorei
ly beaten by a gentleman of high
toned1 chivalry proclivities, ho was
condoltid with by a facetious IXimo
craive journal as "our Black nnd Bluo
Republican friend." It gcoms to bo
something liko poetical justico that
tho Black and Bluo Republicans final
ly had a chanco to "como buck" at
their persecutors with the samo stylo
of arguraont, ns that beneath which
they had so often cowered. Thoro is
something moro than rotribution
something more than poetic justice in
contemplating the- immeasurable full
of tho onco mighty Democratic party.
It is a solemn reflection that
this party, instituted by the best men
of tho revolution, and confirmed by
Jackson, Bonton and Silas Wright,
should Iiavo lost its hold on public
sympathy. Its fall is a warning to
those who drift from tho rock of prin
ciple ob to tl'O quick-sands of expodi
oncy; it leaches that thccxistctico of nn
underlying moral principle in matters
of state, must over be recognized by
party leaders-; that justico must bo
d' no to all, and that no country is
safe with a population disaffected by
oppression or discouraged by neglect.
Tho particular application ot tho prin
ciple to our country is, that tho buy
ing and eellin-g of men as caltlo; the
denial of tho family rotation to tho
black man; the suppression of tho free
dom of discussion, with its concomi
tants, tho caning and shooting of
Yankees in general and abolitionists
in particnlar, hat-, liko the fabled drag
on's teeth, brought tho legitimato re
sults of such procedures. The gon

it was still solid over pretty much the
