THE OHIO DEMOCRATIC PLATFC-RH,
From the Chicago Tribune.
The Ohio DsaiocraMo platform contains
fourteen resolution, of which two consist of
a "oaring in" by the Detnooracy of that State
to the Republican policies concerning slavery
and reconstruction, ten others present ab
stract views with which Republicans gene
rally will not take issue, and the remain
ing two are oconpied with denouncing the
Ku-klux law, and demanding that the five
twenty bonds be paid in greenbacks. Green
backs are new so nearly at a par with gold,
and the point involved in this question has
been worn so threadbare, that nothing more
remains of it. The denunciation of the Ku
klux . law is not expected to lead to any sub
stantial results, as that statute is likely to re
main npon the books nntil it expires by its
own limitation. Altogether, therefore, the
pith of the platform lies in its ratification of
the thirteenth, fourteenth, and fifteenth
amendments, thereby pledging the Demo
cratic party of Ohio to sustain, as accom
plished faets, tke emancipation of the slaves
and negro suffrage. This is the coat which
the Republican party put on seven years ago.
It has done them so good service that it is
bard to see how the Democracy can get muoh
wear out of it. Certainly, it cannot be an
nounced as a party issue that the Democracy
forsake their old ways and accept the Repub
lican view of questions, seven or five years
after they have ceased to be questions. In
short, we learn from this Ohio platform that
the Democratic party is sailing so close to the
wind that it actually has lost its wind and is
drifting. It is unable to raise a single issue
that has point or force. Most of its declara
tions raise no issae whatever, and might as
well have related to the time for planting
marrowfat peas. No issue, for instance, oaa
be made with the Republican party on the
point that the powers not-vested in the Gene
ral Government are reserved to the States or
the people; nor that the States are equal; nor
that the provinces of the General and State
Governments are distinct.
If the Ohio platform could convey any in
struction or value to anybody, it mcst be to
Jeff. .Oavis and his rear brigade of invincible
Bourbons, who are determined to believe
that through the Democratic party of the
North they can yet restore slavery and in
some way vindicate secession. Mr. Davis, in
bis Atlanta speech, predicts that the ultimate
rebel triumph is to come in this manner. The
"Democratic party of Ohio assures ns that Mr.
Davis is a false prophet. His reputation in
that capacity was already very pronounced;
but it is not to be regretted that, so soon
after his Atlanta speech, its chief positions
should be shown to be false by the declara
tions of the Democrats of Ohio.
We see in the Ohio platform about all the
timber that could at present be mustered for
a Democratic national platform, and how
weak an effort it would be. Probably the
intention of its framers was merely to get
the dead issues buried, so that the party could
come to "business" in its forthcoming Presi
dential race in 1872. Still, the present 'plat
form would not have been so tame if the
nTttocrata of Ohm, oontd have found any
thing more to say or better worth saying.
The truth is that by having stood aloof from
the events of the past ten years, they have
virtually lout the power to do anything of
value for some years to come. They have
neither the leaders, the votes, nor the princi
ples that can awaken enthusiasm or inspire
. MODERN TEMPLARS.
From ths jr. Y. World.
New York has beoome aooustomed to
strange sights. The great, metropolis of the
West proves its metropolitan character yearly
more and more decisively by its growing in
diflerenoe to spectacles the most startling and
the mont varied. With hospitality for all ,
with amazement for none, it welcomes com
pany after company from all quarters of the
earth, and tarns an equal gaze of transient
attention npon Chinese ambassadors and
Fenian captives, Japanese daimios and Bri
tish princes. The newspaper is thought to
be a tolerably complete mirror of the daily
life of communities; but no newspaper can
oBsibly reflect with impartial aoouraoy the
life of a genuine metropolis. New York,
like Paris or London, has many sides,
and is made up of diverse campa
and congregations of men divided from
each other, much more completely
than in London and more completely even
than in Paris, by language, by customs, by
habits of life and labor, by social ties, and by.
personal tastes. It is physically and morally
out . of the question that any abstract and
brief chronicle of the time should really repro
duce with general truth and with truth of
details the complete daily being and doing of
such a capital. There will be exaggeration in
this direction, inadequacy in that; falsehood
of proportion, of foreshortening, ef light and
Bbade, to speak thejargancf the painters,
are inevitable. You take up your paper
to-day and read to your profound astonish
ment that the city was yesterday stirred
to its depths by some criminal catastrophe
or tickled to death by some social or political
comedy of which you had not 83 much as
beard. . If you are a man of the world and
addicted "to the pomps and vanities," you
stumble upon the flaming narrative of some
"wedding in high life" in which the splendors
of Oriental opulence combined with the
charms of Occidental taste to illustrate the
social distinction of some brilliantly "fash
ionable" family whose very existence you had
not till that moment bo much as suspected.
A man may live in New York, as he may live
in London or in Paris, for Ions rears, sur
rounded by an extensive circle of friends, and
enjoying all the delights of activity in his
calling and of cultivated intercourse with his
associates, to find in the course of some tour
in foreign - parts or or some soiourn ate
watering-place that the very street in which
he lives teems with families as accomplished.
as busy, as prosperous as any within the
circle of bis own acquaintances, whose names
are yet as strange to. his and his name as
strange to their ears as 11 they lived in Cin
cinnati or be in San Francisco.
The New York newspapers of Sundav.
for example, read in Chicago or New Orleans.
' would lead the people reading them to sup
pose that the whole city was thrown into a
state of txciteuaent over the parade through
its streets of an astonishing procession of
Knights Templar esoorting some forty or
fifty of their comrades to an ocean steamer
in which these were to embark for Kuropn.
As a matter of fact we venture to say that not
oDe xuan in ten out of the whole city popula
tion so much as heard the music of this
ktraige procession, or knew of ita exbteuco
until he read the story of the Templars and
their tour in his newspaper.
And yet there was certainly something
strange, unusual, and worth noting in this
demonstration. Precisely what
Templar" extant in this nineteenth century
and in the State of Pennsylvania may be we
profess not to know. It is dimonit to con
ceive what there can possibly be in common
between the white-mantled warrior-monks
Vtho held Acre to the death against the Mos
lem, and whom a profligate king, when the
cross no longer needed their arms in battle,'
surrendered over to awful tortures and to
slanders not less awful, and a company of
respectable paciflo citizens of Pennsylvania
marching harmlessly about the friendly
highways f New York in straight-collared
black coals, with plumes in their hats and
embroidered girdles and capes and aprons
upon their portly persons. Yet here they
are, these respectable citizens of Pennsylva
nia, not only arraying themselves like Solo
mon in all his glory, but starting off in a
ftolid battalion across the Atlantic, with intent
to visit the remotest sites of the Templars of
old in Europe and the East. When we stop
to think about it, is it not truly an extraordi
From one point of view the phenomenon
would seem to be intelligible enough. With
out dwelling on the charitable uses to whioh
the friends of such organizations as this assert
that they are mainly devoted, it is clear, we
think, that their existence may be adequately
accounted for by the thirst of Americans for
something richer and more picturesque than
the monotonous round of business and of
grinding porsenal cares. We erate on high
days and holidays about the servile love of
efl'ete Europeans for hierarchical grandeurs
and parade. But if Europeans love these
things it is less because they are Europeans
than because they are men. Our own people
prove this when they array themselves pic
turesquely, meet in "lodges" and
"encampments," and go about
with "beauseants," and with baldrics.
Nature driven out with a pitchfork
comes back triumphantly. When we find
well-to-do citizens in smoky Pennsylvania
towns persuading themselves that they are
the modern representatives of Brian de Bois
Guilbert, and putting on for a promenade
through the highways garments of silver and
silk and gold, we may be pretty sure that life
in a Pennsylvania town leaves, as the French
say, "something to bo desired." Ah, how
should it not ? Not even in New York is a
life of mere "getting and spending" such an
existence as the belter kind of those who lead
it find really tolerable. They are always try
ing to knock out a window here or a door
there in the dull casemate of their experience,
in the hope of catching a breath of
fresh air or a gleam of sunshine. These
forty-six Pennsylvanians, with their red-cross
banner and their astonishing pantaloons and
plumes, wandering off over the ocean to
spend the Fourth of J nly with the premier
earl of England in one of England noblaat
and most exquisite baronal castles, and
purposing pilgrimages to consecrated shrines
in the Mediterranean and the Levant, were
really a notable apparition among us, were it
but as an eloquent, albeit Unconscious, pro
test against the adequacy of prose and of
routine to the needs of human nature. Man
shall not live by bread alone; and playing at

BLUE GLASS. .
From the N. T. Tribune.
wa mistaken? Can it be that the first
warning note of the millennium has sounded,
and of all places in the world has wakened
Philadelphia? What else does this mean?
Here we have, in a modest pamphlet, the
final discovery of all ages, a disoovery whioh
is to annihilate death and disease in matter
and in mind, and restore the world to its
pristine freshness and beauty. What is the
Darwinian theory or wire-drawn hypothesis
of correlation of forces, or anv other dun
blind groping after primal causes, to this?
nere is me secret oi the ophynx unriddled;
here is life itself, all in a pane of blue glass!
The world has been searching for five thou
sand years, at least, for the secret of its
being; for this in vain did astrologers ransack
the stars, alchemists summon Osiris and
Aetaroth to their laboratories, and Pence de
Leon lose himself in Mississippi mud; "pro
phets and kings desired it long, and died
without the sight;" and now, in the nine
teenth century, an old gentleman stumbles
upon it while walking about in his eight-by-
ieu uacK-yaru, in a pane oi glass blue glass!
Let us, if possible, calm ourselves, and
convey to our readers these good tidings.
The discoverer is, we learn, a general, an
"armi"-potent soldier, who, during our na
tional struggle, inoessantly and valiantly did
lead the puissant Home Guards up and down
the streets of Philadelphia. But although thus
bred in the wars, like Coriolanus, he is by no
means "ill-schooled in bolted language." His
warfare over, be devoted himself during
these piping times of peace to wooing
Bcience and nature, with what result this
latest great birth of truth into the world
attests. The first conception of his dis
covery came upon him, he tells us, while
gazing at the sky, whose color he found to
be blue. How the second idea of glass
was suggested, we know not; but we next
find him with the theory firmly established
in his own mind that the fcerrn of all
growth and life lay in blue glass. He covered
a grapery with it, and in five months two
inch vines had grown forty-five feet; in a year
they bore grapes by the wagon-load. He
covered a piggery with it; the three sows
under the violet glass increased 12 lbs. more
than three sows in a common pen; a barro w
pig at the same time increased much more
rapidly, owing to the abnormal development
of greed and viciousneBs whioh enabled him
to seize on more than his share of food.
Rising in the soale of animal nature, the
General next sequestrated au Alderney bull
calf just born, and apparently dying, under
the violet glass. In a few hours it got up and
ate with great vivacity; the next day it began
to grow. "Its growth was so apparent," says
the General, "that as its hiud-quarter was then
growing, I directed my son to measure it.
It grew six inches in fifty days, carrying its
lateral development with it." The calf grew
and the General continued to measure its
hind quarter for four months, when the
experiment ceased. The calf was a full
grown, ' finished animal, and went out
from under the glass. The General hs
unfortunately carried his experiments no
higher, but suggests that architects be at
once directed to roof our houses with the life
producing violet hue. Thus can health nt
only be restored to the invalid, but youth to
the aged. We "can produce in the tamper Ue
regions the early maturity of the tropins
and develop in tho jouug a generation,
physically and intellectually, whioh will be
come a marvel to mankind." We can be
lieve it. The very contemplation of the idea
far off of these nnboru generations seated
through the ages of the vat hereafter at thuir
pfep and primers under blu) glas, fills the
u.ii.d with awe aud astonishment. Or will
psp snd primers be neoessary? If the body
and brain of an Alderney calf find develop
ment without them, why not a human being?
What te do with fnture babies is one of our
most vexing national problems just now;
women are trying to shirk them for their
higher duties, and men have not yet consented
to take them up. 'Tut them under blue
glass," says the General; "behold my grapes
nd sows!" Was. ever relief more timely?
We look upon it as a providential interfer
ence on behalf of the Advanced Female.
But why should the benefit of this great
discovery be left to posterity ? Why not roof
Tsmmany with blue glass? or the Capitol?
If the glazier can supply abnormal virtue,
and wisdom, and knowledge at the expense
of a few panes and putty, let him go to work.
Though it destroy the occupation f press and
pulpit, glass is a less noisy reformer than
either. But stay! We reckon without our
host, the Genera . His glass, he promises,
will develop only the germs already present.
Can we hope it will make practical reasoaera
and genial, gracious gentlemen out of the
material it has there to work on? The most
violet of lenses did not turn hia swine into
grapes. The barrow pig offers us a signifi
cant hint. Its greed and vioiousness in
creased in proportion with its muscle. Let
us be cautious. The slight want of suavity,
for instance, perceptible in General Butler's
character niight develop, in the space of
time needed to make a butting ox out -of a
calf, into a character unpleasant for the
country to deal with. Imagine, too, Mr.
Carpenter's personal graces and powers of
speech under the prism for six months! The
nation may carry its debt, bnt there are some
weights under which it would totter and falL
DEMOCRACY, PAST AND PROSPECTIVE.
i'rtm 2 he Four (quarters.
A recapitulation of the vicissitudes of the
Democralio party and their causes in the past
ten or twelve years, as a matter of history
and a premonitor against'their recurrence,
may not be inopportune at this time.
In 18G0 the first of its series of national
Because unwisdom and seclional jealousy
prevailed in the Charleston and Baltimore
Conventions, and extended to the people.
In 1SG4 it bad its second national defeat,
It went before the people with a declara
tion that the war was a failure and should be
stopped. The first assumption was not borne
out by fact; the second did not reflect the
sentiment of the mass of voters, and both
together not only served to bring out the full
vote of the Republican party, but arrayed
every family in the North who had a member
in the army against the Democracy as well as
the Democrats in the field, who could njt
consistently vote one way and fight the oppo
site. In 18CG, 'G7, and 'G8 the party had the
advantage of a demoralized and disunited
opposition, and might have come out of the
Presidential campaign in the -latter year with
"flying colors," but for the "shilly-shally,"
"wishy-washy" sophism of "greenbacks for
bonds." With some of our would-be leading
journals, especially in this State, Pendleton,
the father of this hobby, was the man to carry
us on to viotory. He was the only competent
and available man we had, and his greenback
doctrine the only one to rally the masses
against the "bondocrats. The one had the
eil'ect of disgusting all the reasoning or think
ing men of the party, tho other of arraying
the capitalists of the country against us lu
advance; and when Pendleton and his ism
were both ignored in convention the masses
who had been schooled to his standpoint by
an unwise and precipitate press became luke
warm, and those who were interested in Gov
ernment securities, having lost faith in the
party, either lt the election go by default or
voted direct with, and perhaps contributed
their means to, the support of the party whose
position on and advocacy of the stability of
the national indebtedness were unequivocal.
Now, after so many defeats, are we to profit
by the lessons their experience has or should
have taught us, or are we again to be de
feated through the bl'- 1 advocacy of defunct
or impracticable dogmas by self-constituted
dictators, whether at the heads of clubs, or
party, or purported party organs? No editor,
however wise, has a right, even before a con
vention, to lay down an ultimatum to the
party, and after the representatives of the
people have assembled in State Convention,
and the majority have adopted a platform,
we conceive it to be the duty of every
party organ to conform to that platform, and
any paper claiming or receiving the patronage
of the members of the party that does not do
so is a fraud, obtaining money under false
pretenses, and should be so proclaimed by
the Central Committee, that the unsuspecting
may not be misled by its false teachings.
i We have now a ' fair field in prospect, and
with the criterion of the past to guide us, we
should regain our lost groond. Let wisdom,
prudence, justice and unanimity of action
inspirit the campaign, and success is Certain.

These brief quotations from two of the ablest
and most influential Democratic papers in
Georgia show that the pretenfe that harmony
and unity in the Democratic party North and
South are now assured, has no foundation.
Jeff. Davis' speeches in that State alone
prove this. We do not allude further to
them here it is not necessary; bat it may be
well to recall some of the words of Hon.
Henry W. Uilliard, as he introduced this
same "Ex-President," as they call him, to the
people of Augusta, on the evening of May 27,
when the Democratic citizens crowded to greet
him. These words show what those who are
now leading Democrats of Georgia think of
this man, whom some Northern Demooratio
puptrs wish ns to look upon aa speaking
only for himself , " and having no "in
dorsee." Mr. Uilliard, addressing Davis,
used these words, as reported in the leading
Democratio paper of the city, the Constitu
tionalht: 'We are hero to weloome you. I
do not know that any higher tribute can be
paid to any man than that whioh we offer to
you this evening. You see around you these
who come to oiler yon the unbought tribute
of their respect and admiration." "History
will vindicate you." "I know thit yon were
net rash. You did what you could to save the
repnblio, to promote peaoe, to adjust the
quarrel. I do not propose to review the dread
drama that closed in the overthrow of the
Southern canso. That is not a lost cause. It
is the cause of constitutional liberty, and will
Another of his "indorsers" is the Lexing
ton (Ky.) l'resn. This Democratio paper, in
its issue of Friday morning last, snys: "Mr.
Davis has no fears of any personal conse
quences to himself because of any opinions
which be may entertain or express. The
cowardly malignity of sectional hatred and
partisan ranoor has exhausted itself in his
persecution, and little recks he what his
foes may do or say to him. But he is still a
great leader of the popular opinion of the
Southern people. They reverenoe him for
his purity, dignity, and untarnished honor.
They admire him for the manliness, cour
age, and devotion which have ever
been bis distinguishing traits, and they love
him as one chosen by their oppressors to bear
the full brunt of persecution, wrong and
ignominy, as the representative of that cause
which was to them as just and holy a one as
ever drew a libation of blood from the hearts
of a gallant people. But what a
commentary upon free institutions, when a
man like Jefferson Davis must stifle the utter
ance of his abhorrent ind'gnation at the out
rages inflicted npon his fellow-citizens and
fellow-sufferers, lest bis words be made a
pretext for further ignominy and wrong!"
In an issue subsequent to that from which
we have quoted above, the Columbus (Ga )
Svn says that Davis expressed the .whole
truth in a nutshell when he asserted that he
did not "accept the situation," and that such
cant phrases are but "the excuses of cow
ards. ' It refuses to go on any new depar
ture, saying: "We have no ambition to fight
in radical uniforms. We believe that honesty
wins when duplicity loses. We wish no 'Re
publican corks' Gil which to float into power,
but with the aid of God and the people we
will breast and buffet the billows of radicalism
with true Democratio arms and hearts. If the
old ship goes down in the storm, let it be
with her guns blazing from every porthole,
and her old constitutional Aug fluatiug in
triumph from her tallest mast. We fight
under no piratical colors."
The Petersburg (Va. ) Index, which pro
tests that the North must not think the South
will take Davis as a leader, also says that the
people of the North may as well understand
oace for all that Mr. Davis is aud will for gen
erations, if not forever, remain dear to. the
Southern people; that while they ask "but
justice, equal laws, and peace and quiet,"
nevertheless they will never believe that they
are traitors, nor that Jefferson Davis was or
a a traitor. The Index continues: "The ex
ertions of three years and all the talent and
all the hate ef the North failed to oonviot
him of a shadow of treason. May our right
hand forget its cunning when we forget that
Jefferson Davis is bone of our bone and flesh
of our flesh; that in a long career in publio
life he ever displayed the purity, bravery, and
patriotism which do honor to the race from
which we spring, and that when the fate of
war and the force of brutal malice placed him
in a dungeon, he was there as our representa
tive, and honored himself and us by an un
complaining fortitude and a heroio constancy
worthy of a Uofer or a Falkland."
There is another class of Democratio papers
in the South which "regret" that Jeff. Davis
should say anything, not. but what he ex
presses right sentiments, bnt because his
words are sure to be distorted at the North,
etc., etc. The Montgomery ( Ala.) Advertiser
and Mail closes a leading article with these
words: "If the very natural enthusiasm of
our fellow-citizens, who behold in Mr. Davis
the leading statesman in a cause onoe so dear
to them, Bnd the . martyr of a cowardly ven
geance which shocked the world, would testify
their love and respect for him without re
quiring addresses or speeches in return, the
wisdom of such a course could not be well
Another paper of this class is the New Or
leans Commercial JSuUetin, which says it
thinks Davis' speech, however forcible it was
in argument, was "unfortunate at this junc
ture, and it adds: "Mr. Davis knows the
hearts of the people and they know bis. It
is not always wise, though, to tell the world
what we think or what we feel. His silence
would be more eloquent than words hereafter.
It behooves the South now to exercise all of
her self-control, discretion, ana temperateness
to insure a peaceful and fair participation in
the next general election. Thinking men see
and realize this."
It is somewhat too soon to obtain any very
elaborate expressions of opinions from South
ern Democratio journals on the new Demo
cratio pdlicy enunciated last week by the
Ohio State Convention.' The platform
adopted by the State Convention the Louis
ville Ledger explains away thus: "The reso
lutions are evidently the result of a compr6
mise, and no doubt the aolion of the conven
tion was the wisest thing which could have
been done, in view of the necessity for per
fect harmony in the party. The Vallandigham
platform was adopted in a modified form, the
amendments accepted as accomplished facts,
but with a construction which will render
them harmless. No one questions that the
emeEdment8 are accomplished facts, and the
resolutions do not accept them as finally or
irrevocably accomplished, but only pledge
the party in Ohio, according to the oonstruc
tion given, to an enforcement of the Consti
tution as it now is."
The Selma (Ala.) Time and Messenger is
one of those which advise the Southern De
mocrats to keep still, to be quiet, as Jeff.
Davis said, and wait for their Northern allies
to do their work for them. In its issue of
May 31, it soys: "Let ns throw aside some
of fcur Bpirit against the encroachments of the
Constitution, keep quiet, and let those who
will have to control the voting of the Northern
masses, in order to secure our triumph, mark
the path which we are to pursue, and dictate
the policy by means of which we are to win.
We are willing to trust them, for we know
the men with whom we are dealing; and the
record of the South is made, and the Northern
Democrats know that we will never commit
ourselves to any policy whioh will throw dis
honor npon us as a people." v
