How Can the People trust. the Demo
cratic Party ?
There was time in the history of
this country, when
. the. Democratic
party:eould put forth some claim to
being the friend of the people, and
when succeeded in gaining the con
fidence of, and retaining, in its organ
ization, the masses of the people. In
those days—the days of its power and
glory—it .assumed to be the great
champion of humadrights, of consti
tutional liberty; the friend of the poor
and oppressed, and the enemy of Boni
less corporations and class legislation.
HoW well it succeeded in humbugging
the people, and retaining power in
the National Government, is patent
to all. Upon this point we need not
dwell for the present.
The student of history knows that
its professions were always hollow and
false. Claiming to be the friend of
American industry, it invariably leg
legislated in favor of free trade. Ad
vocating as its cardinal principle, the
doctrines of the Declaration of Inde
pendence, it was the advocate and de
fender of American slavery. Profes
sing to be opposed to monopolies and
a paper currency, it legislated to bUild
up said monpolies and chartered
banks in almost eVery county town.--
Claiming to be the great and only
Union party of the country, it was
the - only pirty that ever threatened
disunion, and that absolutelyretained
power in the Government for years by
assuring the people in every Presi
dential campaign that if it was de
feated at the polls it would dissolve
the Union. It proclaimed one set of
principles for the South and another
for the North, until its wickedness
and hypocrisy became so apparent to
the people that they arose in the ma
jesty of their power and hurled it
from place it had so long disgrac
ed. Scarcely had the verdict of the
people been announced, when this
party, claiming to be Democratic,
sought" o - bleak up the Government,
and to dissolve the Union.
"Occasional," of the Phil's. Pros,
in speaking of this party; says "In
the past ten years the Democratic
leaden had a hundred opportunities
to do right, and by so doing to endear
the masses to - their cause _ ; but in no
one instance have they . seized the fit
ting moment to do the proper thing.
Let us.entuneiate afew of - the golden
occasions which,thejr.fieglected :
They. forced Janies %Amman
to break hie solemn pledge,; that the

2. They sustained: AC 'Licemptin
bill with all its atrocities;und ostraciz
ed every man in the party who would
not endorse-it. . • • , - •
3. They seconded the proscription
of STEPHEN A. Dotror..as; because he
insisted upon the doctrine of popular
sovereignty, and refused to support the

the full knowledge that he vas not the

5. They supported the fatal heresy
in JA3IE6 BIICIWAN'S last Message,
denying the right Of the Government
to save itself' from destruction.
6. They opposed all the great war
measures of Mr. Liscowz's Adminis-
7. They prolonged the war by hold
ing out hopes to the Southern people
which they knew could not be fulfilled.
8. They encouraged ANDREW JOHN
SON in measures which prolonged the
miseries of the South' through four
9. They revived all the passions of
the - war by nominating a ticket at New -
York, on the 4th of July, 1868, and
placing it on a revolutionary plat
Without enumerating other instan
ces, these will suffice to show how stub
bornly the Democratic 'leaders have
disregarded their obligations to truth
and liberty, and how blindly they have
rushed their followers into destruc
"Occasional" thinks it possible,
even yet, for these leaders to do right.
We cannot agree with him on this
point. Think for a moment of the men
who lead the Democratic party, and
then ask yourself the question : Can
these men do right? To do right is
to be a true man—a true patriot. Can
VALLANDIGHA3f be a Patriot? Can
HEWER CLYNIER and WM. A. WAL
LACE, and all that school of Demo
cratic politicians, do right? Can the
Itilthiopean change his skin, or the
leopard his spots? The thing is im
possible. The leaders of the Demo
cratic party are tyrants, aristocratic at
heart. They cannot act with the Re
publican party. Its atmosphere is too
pure. Its doctrine of "equal and ex.-
-s.et justice to all men" is too Demo
cratic. Their idea of Democracy is,a
large plantation, plenty of slaves, and
a white man'a Government , . Where
-the few can lord it Over the many,and
where all must keep step to the music
of the overseer's lash.
Why will the masses-of the people
continue to trust the Democratic par.
ty ? Why will honest, thinking men,
continue to act and vote with it? Look
at its record.. Read its history for the
last twenty years. Think how it has
b een rebuked by the nwjrnlFy of the
liberty-loving people of the . United
States for the last twelve years. See
.how it is left, without a National - or:
ganization, without honor, and with
out hope of obtaining control in the
Nation, so long as the Republican
party is true to itself and to its prin
ciples.. Everyman who loves his
country, who loves liberty, who pre
fers the society and companionship of
loyal men; to rebel sympathizers and
traitors should, without delay, resolve
to join the ranks of the Republican
party, and act with it and vote with
it, enjoying all its honors, all its vic
tories, all its glorious achievements,
just the same as if he had been one of
its earliest adherents.
Conquer your prejudices; think as
honest men should think, and the
nork is done.
Worthy of Noting.
The principal stock-in-trade of the
Democrats, says the Pittsburg Com
mercial, consists in tirades against the
Republican party. Formerly the"nig
ger"- composed the sum and substance
of their arguments. The absence of
the "nigger" has rendered.theDemo
ern), more acrimonious in their at
tacks upon the Republican party.
Their practice, however, does not keep
pace with their professions. The other
day, when Mr. KERR'S xesolution for
the payment of ten percent. extra to
the clerks, messengers, watchmen and
laborers employed in the various De
partments at Washington, came up, a
Republican member made a motion to
lay the resolution on the table. Here
was an opportunity for those Demo
crats who are incessantly crying out
against extravagance to put in pract
ice theirlowiprofessions. The motion
was carried by five. votes. Seventy
four Republicans and five Democrats
voted yea. Forty-one . ReptpliCans
and thirty-three DemoCrits voted nay.
There is nothing either new or rc
markable in this action of the clam or
ers for public economy. It is entirely
in keeping with their past course, and
therefore to be expected. Still it is of
sufficient importance-to - make a note of
for future reference.
- Our young friend, Joe. W. FUREY',
has retired from the. chair Editorial of
the Clinton Democrat. Personally,
we esteem JOE. as one of our best
friends, and have always felt soity that
he could not see the corruption, 'wick
edness and anti-Democratic proclivities
of the co•called Democratic party, and
leave the organization forever. But
there are none so blind as those who
will not see, and while Jaz; refuses to
work and act with the great party of
liberty, progress and equal rights, we
nevertheless 'wish him success pecuni
arially and physically wheieverhe may
turn up. •

TICE amount of pig iron produced in
the country during.lB6B was 1,603,000
tons of 2,000 pound's.. Of this Penn
sylvania produced 1,022 555 tons; New
York, 188,081 tons; Ohio, 318,000
tons, and the remaining 71,3,64 tons by
Michigan, Maryland, the Nevi Eng
land and other States. The estimated
value of the pig iron was $63,000,000.
IT is said that "Thine for the right"
is about to retire from the chair Edi--
torial of the Watchman, and with car
pet bag in hand, return to same "Con
federate X Roads"in Kentucky where.
it is hoped, he will find a purer and a
sounder specieS of "Democracy, "where
he can give full vent to his "pent up"
feelings, and ease his rebel mind.
THE Herald, an excellent paper
published in Carlisle, Pa., contained,
last week, a strong and well written -
Editorial, entitled the "Spring Elect
ion." Hit them again. These Court
House cliques are a curse to any party
or county. We have one of them here;
but its days are numbered. The hand
writing is already on the wall. '
DOES the Watchman really believe
that Protestantism has proved a fail
ure ? A large number of its readers,
we understand, are anxious to know.
Explain at once. Why keep them in
suspease ? Were our Protestant fath
ers all deceived? .Were they all fa
natics? Tellus About it Mr. MEEK.
Will the Watchman Oesse expilain
why it is that every christian man,
who wishes to carry out the golden
rule, "Do unto others as ye would that
others should do to you," is compelled
to leave the Democratic party, as at
present organized? It has been so for
the last fifrPnn v.grg. Why ?
P. G. 1 414. K., with all his rebel pro
clivities, it is stated, could not endure
the rebel ravings of "Thine for the
right," and has mado up his mind to
send him back to Kentucky, or down

the•most'anemorable that ever occur

the questions involved, the ability of
the speakers engaged, theearneStness,

The. Republicans had made up their

showed that he ::,'eked upon_ this great
question in the light of christianity.-,
In answer to Doolittle he said: "By
the blessing of God, we had abolished
slaveryin spite of the Democratia
party; we . had sustained the war in
spite; of the-Democratic party; we sav
ed the Union in spite of the Democratic
