j 'Government has reduced the principal
of -its-debt, in addition to paying a
I largo ; interest, $250,000,000. War
' claimA, bounties, &c, have been paid
; to the amount of $100,000,000, which
' is really a rctluution of the debt in that
; s'arn, making $350,000,000 of the
principal paid 'in' three years. This
! is paying off at the rate of $100,000,

tors would return to the shovel and
tile hoe." This is the bid which Gen.
Bluir made. 'J he Democracy accept
ed it, and he ratified the acceptance
by an additional letter, in which he
repealed his promise.
This is the pledgo of Gen. Blair ;
let us see what Ins followers think.
The cowardly World gives due promi
nence In the t'ln pit-nee of Isaiah Ityn
tlcrs nnd Richard O'Gorman, but it is
silent about Toombs uud Cobb uud
Hill nnd Hampton. It is not for us
dwell upon this conspicuous dishones
ty in journalism, this ignoring of the
ablest nud most honored leaders of the
Democratic parly. Gen. Hampton
was better treatetl here during the
Convention. Then he was an or tele.
He was met, he sivs, with "cordiality
and good will." Tho leaders, howev
er, declared, according to Gen. Hamp
ton, ''their willingness to give us (the
Rebels) everything we could desire,
but they beyyed vs to remember that
thuy had a great light to make ut the'
North, and 'thuy then-fore besought
us not to hud the platform with a
weight that 'they could not carry
against tho predjiidices which they
had to encounter, . Help tlumonoe to
gain the power and then they u-ould do
their uimoit to relieve the Southern Statex
and rctitore to us the UnioA and the
Constitution as it had existed before the
War." This is the proinisu which
Mi. Hampton received, nnd he added
uniiil the cheers of a mb of Charles
ton Rebels th it it, "is a policy that
suits us, when the greil Democratic
party is pledged to the declaration Vial
the licconstruction acts are. unconstitu
tional, revolutionary, and void. 1'Jspea
tally when every member of the party,
and tlte warmest are from tlte North, is
ready to take it up and carry it out."
Here, then, is evident that the scheme
of Gen. Blnir, the revolutionary
scheme to destroy the "carpet-bag gov
ernments, even by military force Was
planned by Democratio lenders and the
secession Generals. General I lamp
ton tells us there was no dissent. He
found every member of tho party
pledged to it, (Mr. Seymour and all),
the "warmest" being "from the North,"
and that they only wanted success in
Nofembcr to enable them "to take it
up and carry it aid."
Thus, then, we have the wholo
Democratio party solemnly committed
to revolution at a secret convention
held in New York, at whioh Rebel
generals attended. We call it a "con
vention," but it was rather a capitu
lation a surrender and . what Is
worse, tho surrender of traitors. If
they had surrendered openly in
broad day with frauk avowal of their
their purpose, no ono wuuld have com
plained. They deliberately proposed
to cheat the country. "Help L'lan
to to gain the power" and all will go
well. To gain that power, chicanery,
and deceit, ami fraud are to be used ;
and when a Democratio leader talks
soothingly of peace and constitutional
reined it's, show him this solemn con
fession of Wade Hampton, ami con
vict him of falsehood. The record
comes out as clear us the sun,
Wudo Hampton and his friends power
mid wo shall have another civil war
to provo "the licconstruction net un
constitutional, revolutionary, and
This is a solemn charge, but let us
prciss it nnd call up tho witnesses.
Wade Hampton and Frank Blair have
spoken. Hero is Robert Toombs, u
prominent Democrat of Georgia :
Mr. Toombs what is youT under
standing of tho Dem icratio xlicy ?
Mr. T. "lhutttll these rjcoustruc
tion nets as ' they are called, these
schemes of delusion, of villiuny, and
of tyranny, shall no longer torso the
statute book nor oppress tho free
people "f the country." Speech in At
tanti, July 23. : .
Frankly ' spoken, Robertl but we
should like something more explicit.
You have heard General Hampton's
testimony. What iri your opinion of
the Democratic policy ?
Mr. T. "That theso .so-called
Governors and Legislatures which
have been established in our midst
shall ut once be made to vacate. The
Convention at New York appointed
Frank Blair especially to oust them."
Speech at Atlanta.
Then, Robert, you believe in resist-
ti nee, una that i' runic should
bi as-
sistcd in his work ?
Mr. T. Rather vagtiely7"but with
out-cropping, unmistakable instiling. J
"i'hd principle, that justice shall rule
that nil tyranny is illegal, thnt it
ought to bo resisted, and that resist
ance to Hii'li is obedience to God, is the
the voice of nature, nnd of. nature's
God, ringing through all climes, of ull
countries,, proclaiming to 'mankind
that wrong eau never be sanctioned by
force." .
Here is Howell Cobb, whose speech
wo published recently, und the spirit
of which wearc content with summon-'
ing up in this extract :
" l lio doors aro wide opon, wido
enough, broad enough lo receive ev
ery white limn in Georgia, unless you
should discover him coming to you
creeping and crawling under the Chi
cago platform. Upon thl-m there
should bu no iner.y. They have dis
honored themselves, ami sought to
dishonor you. Anathematize them.
Drive them from the pale 'of social
ami political society. Leave them to
wallow iu their own mire and filth.
Nobody will envy them, and if they
ure never taken out of the gully until
1 reach forth my hand ' to take them
up, they will die iu their natural ties
inent. Laughter nnd upplnuse."
Could language be plainer than
this? Gen. Bluir proposes to destroy
tho G ivei'iiuii-nt, while- G5TT. Cobb,
who o imui in led the stockade of An
tlersonville, is to bo aligned to the
congenial work of exiei'iuliulioii. B.
II. ilill is another witness, -We pro
pose to detain him a little longer :
"But we have a party now organ
ized, a strong and a glorious party,
with statesmen at its head, and with
correct principles for its platform.
They have taken the field, and from
Maine to California the dread tramp
of Democracy is growing more und
more distinct, anil hy November n

free men of America that shall glad

"Yet the vile, tho low, the corrupt
and the perjured ure seeking to be
our rulers, and have seized upon our
high jilaces ; but the noble, the valiant
and tne true are still left to us, and
throughout the ' country aro taking
courage and singing tho notes of com
ing triumph. Ye miserable swarms of
political neeuleney, hutched, in the
stentih of revolutionary corruption in

According to Ben, therefore, "die
men whom God made superior" are
to have a Union thnt he fancies or "no
Union at all." This is bis under
standing of the Democratio platform,
and nsa preparatory step he makes this
proclamation s

new. are all-to the point. We luke
an example or two of what the smallest
and the dullest of them, as well as the
biggest and cleverest liens and Csh as
well us elephants csm do.
There were industrious -fleas before
our time. Baron Wulckcnacr (who
died in 14012) saw with Ins own eyes,
for sixpence, in the Place debt Bourse,
Paris, limr learned fleas perform the
manual exercise, standing- upright on
their hind legs, with n splintcrof wood
to-serve for a pike. Two other Ocas
drugget) a golden carriage, with a third
Ilea, holding a whip, on the box for
coachman. . Another pair drugged a
cannon. The flea-horses were ho moss
ed by n golden chain lustcmd to their
hind legs, w hich was nover taken 0!'.
They had lived in this way two years
ami a hall, without nnv mortality
among them, when Walckenaer saw
them. They took theirmeals on their
keeper's arm. Tho feuts. Vero per
formed nu a Pluto ot polished glass.
When they were sulky, und refusmLto
work, the man, instead of whipping
them, held a nit ot lighted charcoal
over their bucks, which ' very" soon
brought tl.-ein to their senses.
But of what use is cleverness with
out a heart? Tho Ilea has strong ma
ternal aU'ections. Sho lays her eggs
in the cranniesof floors, in the bedding
of animals, and 011 babies' night
clothes. When the helpless, transpa
rent lurvre appear, the mother-flea feeds
then), as the dove does its young, by
discharging into their months tho con
tents ot her stomach. Grudge her
not, therefore, oncsmiill drop of blood
For. you, it is nothing but a flea-bite;
for her, it is tho life of her beloved
offspring I
While pleading, however, for tho
flea we cannot do as much for the bug,
though he 13 gifted with lullcr devel
oped intelligence. An inquisitive gen
man, wishing to know hov the bug
became aware of a human presence,
trietl the following experiment. lie
got into a bod suspended from tho
ceiling, without any tester, in the mid
dle of an iinluruishcd room. lie then
placed on the floor a bug, who, guided
probably by smell pondered the means
ot reaching the bed. Alter fleep re
flection he climbed up the wall, trav
eled straight across the ceilinrr to the
spot immediately over tho bed, and
then dropped plump on tho observer's
noe. Was this, or was it not, an act
ol intelligence? Tho fish belongs to
the great flathcad family. Ono fel
low, with a muzzle prolonged into
long narrow tube (which houses ns a
popgun,) prow ls about tho bunks of
tidal rivers. On spying a fly on the
water-weeds he slyly swims up until ho
gets within five or six feet of it. He
then shoots it with water from his
proboscis, never failing to bringdown
his game. A governor of the hospital
at lialuvia, doubting the met, tlictlgl
attested by credible witnesses, proeur
ed some of theso fish, to watch their
pranks. He stuck a flv on n pin at
the end of a stick, nud placed it so us
to attract tlioir notice. Jo Ins great
delight they shot it with their water
guns, for which ho rewarded them
with a treat of insects.
The pike has proved himself not
only intelligent but even capable dis
believe it who will ot gratitude. '
"W ilo living at Durham," say
Dr. Warwick, "I took a walk one
evening in Lord Stamford s park. On
reaching a pnnd in which fish were
kept ready lor use, 1 observed a fine
pike of some six pounds weight. At
inv approach ho darted away liko an
arrow, In his hurry he knocked his
haul against an iron hook lixeil 111 a
pot in the water, fracturing his skull
and injuring tho optio nerve on out
side of his head. lie appeared to suf
fer terrible pain; he plunged into the
mud, floundered hither and (hither,
unci ut hist, lenping out of tho water,
fell on the bank. On examination a
po-tion of the brain was eeen pro
truding through the fractured skull.
"This I carefully . restored to its
place, making use of a small silyer
toothpick to raise tho splinters of bro
ken bone.. The fish remained' quiet
during the operation; when it wus
over ho plunged into the pond. . At
first his sufferings appeared lo be re
lieved; but in the course pf a few min
utes ho began rushing right and left
until ho again leaped out of tho water
"I called the keeper, and with his
assistance applied a bandage to the
fracture, that done, we restored
him to the pond nnd left him
to his fate. ' Next morning, as soon as
I reached the -Water's edge, the pike
swam to meet me quite clusl to the
bank, and laid his bead upon my feet.
I thought this an extraordinary pro
ceeding. . Without further delay,', I
examined the w ound and found It'heal
ing nicely. -''I then strolled for some
time by the side of the pond. The fish

and turning ns I turned. ,
"The following day, I brought a few
young frienc'B with mo to seo the fish.
He swam toward me as before. - Little
by littlo he became so tame as to come to
my whistle and eat out of my hand.

I if- 1 sometimes feel as if I could life

through your waterfall filled me with
unbounded awe. , Your forehead is
