that such laws should bo submitted to

Many papers of all parties aro advo
cating tho election of tho very ablest
men In every county or district as dele
gates to tho Constitutional Convention.
This Idea will commend lUelf to the
common senso of every man: A consti
tutional convention Is no placo for
blockheads or demagogues.
Certain vagabond politicians, with
the Ulaius nt their head, havo tho ef
frontery to ask tho Democratic party to
disband, to mnko no nomination for
President, to nomlnato a Radical, Ac.
Wo believe that In no promlncnt caso
lins any recognized Democrat watlo
either of theso proposltlons-but It comes
froui tho30 who havo come over tn us
since the war from such as tho Bt.Ains,
Chase, Andy John-eon, Caul Suuum
tho Now York World, and others who
can scarcely swear to their own political
Identity. Gentlcmon, go whoro you
will, but you shall neither corrupt or
cpwer tho Dsmocracy. Do what you
will, n Democratic candldato will bo In
tho field for Prcsldont, and no power on
earth can prevent it. Conventions nnd
politicians may bo bought up but tho
peOplo cannot be.
What dlffercnco to tho Democracy
which Republican leader shall bo Pres
ident ? Whother it bo Grant, or Sum
ner, or Butler, or Chase, or Gree
ly, is of no consenuenco whatovcr, and
if a selection is to bo mado from amongst
theso, few Democrats will cara a straw
which shall bo successful. Tlio Dcmo
cratlc opposition is to a Republican be
ing President not moro to Genornl
Grant occupying that position than lo
any other Republican occupying It. It
Is to tho politics and practlcos of Re
publicans that tho Democrats olject
their principles aro destructive to tho
. best interests of tho country, nnd this
is why Gen. Grant Is objected to.
Tho wiseacres wo refer to emphatically
calcul&to without their ho3t. The Dem
ocratic party cannot be transferred lo the
tupport of a Jlepublicun. If such at
tempt wcro mado by tho National Con
ventlon, Immense numbers would refuse
to ratify thoactlon.and very large, mini
bcrs.to express their liorror of tho action
and prevent It In future, would voto
directly for Grant. . Aro man but a
Democrat can beat Gen. Grant, and
the sooner tho trndlng politicians como
to this conclusion tho better it will bo
for all concerned. But they say "sue
cess" must beobtalned no inntter what
Is trampled under foot, success above
all things! Well, gentlemen, if that Is
all It is easy to bo obtained nominate
Grant! Then thcro'wlll bo no opposl.
tloii nnd Heaven Itself will not prevent
"success I" In fact you will bo kucccsi
ful unanimously I
But, cowards 1 to yn'ur tents to your
beds! President making is tho hnslncsn
of men men who can not only faco do
feat hut brao nny danger. Bravo
men will never yield their principle.
Thcro Is but ono conclusion, and lli..t Is
irreversible, viz: Democrats will not
voto for any man who does not repre
sent, their principles, and thcroforo the
Democratic candldato for President
must bo a Democrat If success Is ituira
Blo.utlierwlso it la not possible except

It would be Interesting lo know who

wnora tho Dcmucracy Is bulldlug Its
bopea in the noxl Presidential cam

which many would havo tho opposition
disband their organization or chango
their colors to win over. Is mythical.
Wo seo no ovidenco of them or their
votes iu tho elections or tho venr. Tho
party in every Stnto of tho 'Union was
intact and undlvidpd. J'Mla. iVeu.
If tho gamblers who want to sell out

bcllovo their own assertions let them
Inform tho public who will como to
Uteir aid ir thoy succeed In their pur
poses. What" clement is it? What
would bo Its purposes? Who aro its
Icadors ? You aro daily defied to men.
tlon them, why don't you answer?
Tho fact Is, tho men who proposo this
suicidal nnd Infamous coutso aro leaders
without followers, patriots without
principle, Generals without a causo or
an army, charlatans who want to prey
. upon tho public, wiso men without
sense, busy bodies with desperate po

Xo Surrender In Ohio.
Oa Friday last, Iho Domocratic Stato
Central Commlttco of Ohio met nt Co
lumbus. Messrs. Pendleton, Morgan,
McCook, and other leading Democrats,
wcro present. Tho Committee dlscussod
tho nencral political situation. It was
determined not to name Iho dato or
placo of holding tho next Stato Conven
tlou, and another meeting of tho Com
mlttco will bo held on tho 2il of Feb
ruary, to decide Ihejo points. Oa ac
count of other cnjugome'itii, Hon. A.
G. Thurman felt himself compollod to
resign tho Chairmanship of tlio Com
mittee. Tho Commlttco report that tho
Democracy of tho Stato aro not con
quered, panic stricken, or demoralized,
but aro willing, In 1872, to mako another
effort, Stalo nnd National, to securo the
triumph of Djmocratlc principle;.
Montgomery Blair. John Q.
Ad.uis and other disgusted Republic
ans who wont swallow Radicalism,
want tho Democracy to mako no nom
ination for President and como over to
them I Would It not bo equally modest
for theso gentry to como over to tho
Democracy? We havo read that Mo.
hammed onco commanded a mountain
to como to him, but r.s It continued to
stand still In deflanco of his command,
ho settled tho question by going to tho
mountain I Disgusted Republic tns may
profit by tho cxamplo.
The Dfinocratlc leaders of tho Stalo
of Now York did not hcsltato as to
what was tholr duty when tho frauds of
Tweed & Co. camo to thu surface. Thoy
at onco commenced prosecution against
them for malfjasanco In oQlco. In
straugo contrast with this Is tho conduct
of tho lenders of tho Radical party.
With astounding frauds turning up
overy day, they form closer alllanco
with tho plunderers, and If thoy do not
actually assist them in tholr specula
tions, sfileld thorn from punishment.
More Rascality to he Covered
up iiy Martial Law. Thcro is a
strong cry for martial law coining up
from Georgia. Tho necessity for it will
bo fully approclatod whon wo say that
It comes exclusively from tho Ilullock
gang of plunders. If they can got tho
civil courts closed thoy will feci perfect
ly safo. No doubt Oraut nnd Akcrman
will soothe tholr porturbed souls by
declaring martial law as soon as proso
cutlons nro commonccd against them.

Iu concluding an articlo on tlio uncer

Military j-cnown Is a flno thing, but
reason should limit tho sacrifice mado
to it. Tho first Bonanarte hrouorht

Helena, though ho was a great soldier.
His namo was tho stock In trade on
which hi-, nephew went Into business.
and his military government oat the
very heat tout of Framv, aid left her
feeble and Imjioveiishi'd, an easy prey

of Iho country Is heartily sick of him.
Ho has boon paid In full, Ho can now

History will repeat Itself now, If tho

republican parlies unite In support of a
candldato whoso character affords a
guarnntco of honest administration of
tho freo constitutional govermuont,
which is tho greatest and dearest right
of every Amcrlcau citizen worthy of

elcmonts of opposition to tho corrupt,
greedy, selfish cliquoof plunderers who

now, It Is only needed to mergo selfish
pretentions lit tho gonernl good. Tho
union of tho opposition to Grant.assures
his defeat, that is certain, certain "as

great good.all minor considerations
ought to bo subordinated, and wo do
not think so 111 of the Intelligence of

The Co.minci Conciress. According
to General Butler, President-mnkiug Is
to be tho main business of thu coming
session of Congress. Unless tho gov
eminent has becomo practically nn oli
garchy, tho making of Presidents ought
to bo loft to tho people. That Is no
part In tho function of Congress, or, If
It Is, tho pcoplo have uo moro to do
with tho selection of their chief ruler
than the subjects of Europeau monarch
les. All they havo to do, at tho utmost,
Is to ratify a solectlon by an election
This was not tho design of tho founders
of tho government, nor consistent with
tho republican theory. Such aa assump
tion by Congress, besides oponing tho
door for corrupt appointments and
bribery, involves tho neglect of nil prac
tical business. Tho reduction of taxes
nnd tho llghtonlng of other public bur
thens aro objects anxiously desired by
tho country, and Iu which Congress
might find iv legitimate nnd nmplo field
for its energies. Another fact of ovll
omen Is mentioned by correspondents
when thoy Inform us that thoblrd3of
prey aro already docked to tho capital.
It Is predicted that overy old schomo
that has failed any tlmo thoso last ton
years will probably bo renewed, aud
now ones bo engendered hourly. Tho
corruptlonlsts gathered In Washington

Just boforo tlio reform earthquake shook

and worso than any other, they are
likely to dlo harder. But their day Is
coming, for tho people aro more power-

The Boston 1'osl pays of the presjnt
Radical campaign in South Carolina:
This trick has becomo too stalo to
work any longer. Everybody knows
that It Is what is professional styled a
put'tipjob. Hero Is an entire population
put to lllght by Federal troops, that
was living yo3terdy In ns quiet anil
contented a fellowship as characterizes
any other community. War has boon
practically declared against them by
tho Federal governmont. Not on nc-
count of nny crlmo on their part do
they Ilea but beeauso thoy aro invaded
by the troops of a government that hns
nothing to do with them. All this takes
placo under tho Infamous Ku-Klux law,
which was denounced ut tho tlmo of Its
passage, with such vigor, by Senators
ScHuitz and Tjiumiiull a statute
claiming Its origin In tlio Fourteenth
Amendment, which Is thus Interpreted
to mean tho ovorthrow Instead of tho
exteutloii of Republican liberty."
The "Now Departure" resolution did
moro Injury to tho Democratic party In
tho recent election than all tho frauds
committed hy tho rascals who havo
placed our party Indlsreputointho city
of Now York. Tho dovetailing of that
disastrous plank into tho Democratic
platform was tho causo of our discomfit
ure nnd defeat. Republicans that nro
disgusted with Radical rulo and who
voted for us last year nnd year before,
looked upon tho "Now Departure" as
tho material that closed up tho breach
between tho two contending parties on
tho negro question, nnd they considered
that no real reason existed why their
aid should bo given to us this year. Wo
attribute our defeats to this outrageous
picco of policy which was perpetrated

Tho following from tho Erlo Observer
expresses our sentiments exactly :
Wo nro sorry to meet a Democrat oc
casionally whohdlscourgcd over defeat
and talks nbout giving up nil effort for
tho parly hcreaftor. This Is not tho
spirit which should actuate tho friends
ofajustnml patriotic causo. Cowards
and tlmo servcrs desert and falter whun
,tho enemy gain nn advantage; bravo
men, who are actuated by prlnclplo,
nover. For seven years our revolution
ary fathers waged tholr struggle with
England, nmld tho most dlshonrtonlng
circumstances, yot tluy c.tnn out tri
umphant at last, and received 'tho ad
miration of mankind for their endur
nnco and valor. Wo who hoist of a
direct descent from thrso noblo men nro
unworlhy rf their momorlos anil unfit

not pattern nftcr thulr Illustrious ex
nmplo. Defeat had no terrors for them,
lot It havo nono for us : r.s' their attach
ment to principle nerved them to duty,
let 11 mako us thu moro firm and de
termined ; as they profiled hy dlsister,
let us bo taught and benefited. "Tho
Old Guard never surrenders," was tho
reply of a' noted general when called
upon to lay down his arms. And we
reply to tho3o who talk of giving up
our party organization : "Tho Democ
racy never surrender." Wo nro fight
ing for principles, not for mere spoils,
nnd defeat docs not nfuku ono Indict
mcnt against tho traitors to republican
Institutions tho less (rue, ir ono plank
of our platform tho less valiuble. Tho
battle wo havo fought for trtnj.i years,

In tho least nfrald but that victory will
ultimately crown our btnnora.
General GraxtM Ws-hlnglon oi-
gan after alluding lo tho Into elections
In the Southern States, which resulted
adversely to Its ptrty says : "It will re
quire not less than ton thousand regular
troops, Judiciously distributed through
out the Southern Stales, toInuru n freo
and fair election In thosi States, In
1872. It may bo necessary that Congress
should increase tlio army." Such an
announcement us tills would stir the
people of France, nt this time, to a
perfect frenzy. Tlio uso of trojp) to
Insure a fair, freo election, in a tlmo of
profound peace! What eff-jt will it
havo in tho United Slates?
It has transpired what bec.tmo of a
portion, nt least, of tho money for
which nn action is commenced against
William Jf. Tweed. Judgo Noah Davis,
United States District Attorney, states
that ho has received Information entire
ly satisfactory to his mind that "tho
Now York charter was voted for by tho
Republicans pursuant to a caucus reso
lution of both branches of tho Leglsla
ture, but that the entire body of Jtepubll
cans were corrupted by immense sums of
money brought by Tweed from New
York, for which Identical money nn
action had been commenced against

1871, from whiskey and tobacco .amount
