Muny of ourDomocratlojournnli nnd
Btivtasmon nro nt present earnestly (lis
cumIiir Iho question "whnt policy
should tho Domocrntlo party pursuo in
tho perilling Presidential contost?" If
tlio "passive policy" menus that wo
should mnko no nominations, but ro
innln n spectator In tho fight between
tho Grant and Anti-Grant men, wo
unhesitatingly Bay "io." Wo do not
bolluvo that any considerable, number
of Democrats over uiado such n propo
sition, and lunsmuch n? it docs not
stand tho ghost ofn chanco of adop
tion, thero is no real nccossity for do
bating that question.
Tho policy of nomlnntinc a conserva
tive Republican lias moro supporters,
and the arguments aro based on moro
boiiu grounds. But wo do not favor
thla. Thousands of Democrats would
refuse to voto for such a ticket, and ex
perlenco 1ms taught us that tho numbor
or recruits from tho opposition would
oe very small. Thoso who aro dissatis
fled with tho conduct of tho Aurninls
tratlon cuu como to us much moro caM
ly than wo, who aro satlsDod with our
organization, can go to them. Tho
motnont wo nbomlon our party orcraui
zatioa it will split into factions : and
having no leadership, will loso oven
tho ground it now holds.
" No general would think of surrender
ing on army becauso it had been defeat-
1 In a series of pitched battles, if the
morale and organization of Ills army
was perfect, If his numbers had not
diminished and if ho had lost no
grounu ot importance. To-day our
party is in a better condition than it
has been fortwolvo years. Its numbers
aro greater, and Stato after Stato has
beon wrested from our enemies. Tho
recruits obtained by our enemies from
tho negro ranks when suffrago was con
ferred upon them alono has saved tho
Republican party from defeat; and
even with theso auxiliaries, they iiavo
been compelled to resort to fraud and
vlolonce to keep them In power. Dis
affections havo mado open breaches in
their ranks which aro being daily
wiuened by tho vigorous assaults of
such men as Greeley, Sumner, Trum
duh and Kchurz.
To defeat Grant thae men must aid in
defeating the Republican party. Hav
ing done this they may reorganize their
party on a purer bask; but to glvo
them tho leadership of tho Democratic
party and on their platform, would in
evitably lead to our ruin.
Nothing is moro common in war, (to
which political strife Is akin,) than tho
acceptance of aid from an ally, or from
thoso whoso interests Ho In tho defeat
of tho opposing power j but it seldom
occurs that tho main contestant yields
tho leadership of his forces to his tran
Wo would not refuse tho aid of thoso
who are dissatisfied with tho corruption
and nepotism of Grant's Administra
tion with his bayonet rule, San Do
mingo speculations, or horso jockey
proclivities ; but on tho contrary would
construct u orcmu unit nt,vi..i riarnrm.
and nominate a man as pure and ablo
as any-on the opposite- side. We would
not revamp tho dead issues of the past,
but would present tho living, vital ones
of the present.
In a word, wo would achlevo victory
if It can be honorably done, without an
abandonment of principles; but never
will consent to the disintegration of
our party, even if wo must forever re
main In a minority.
Tho Custom House Investigation.
Tho Investigation into tho manage
ment of tho New York Custom House
has brought to light an amount of fraud
and Imposition which would bo start
ling in any other ago than the ono in
which we live. Thero is scarcely a
branch of tho business whero merchants
havenotbeen charged ejnorbitant rates
which have gone Into tho pockets of the
officials, notably to tho collector him
self. In ono caso out of a total amount
paid of $120,817.C9 the collector received
$117,1GG.27. The special agent bureau
is a soro grievance, as tho employees
possess almosc absoluto powers ovor tho
Dooks and papers 6f mercantile houses
To quote Senator Fenton, "any com-
merciai house Is at their mercy." The
general order business under Grant's
friend Lc$t is rotten with corruption.
As tho commerce of tho whole country
isanected by these outrageous depreda
tions upon Now York merchants, tho
correction 01 tno abuses Is anxiously
desired and tho Comraitteo of Senators
who havo tho matter in chargo aro
watcned closely. Tho peoplo will not bo
eausueu with any whitewashing roport
Tho total abolition of tiio ovils com.
plained of, will alone bo received as
satisfactory. It Is to bo hoped that tho
Investigation will develop just how
much money a rant and his military
ring at me White llouso havo mado
put of this business. Tho examination
might as well bo thorough and tho big
thiove3 punished as well as tho llttlo
ones. This Is tho day for peculations
m ouicoand tho peoplo, sinco tho ex
po3uro of tho Tammany frauds aro de
termined to put a stop to wholesalo rob
beries whether perpetrated by dishon
est Democrats or "loyal" adherents of
the administration. Tho higher tho
rank of tho offender tho greater should
bo tho"puni3b.ment. Unpunished crimes
grow apaco and thero can bo no limit
set to tho outrages committed upon tho
puoiic umess punishment speedily fol
Ucorgo 0. Evans.
Wo shall watch with great Interest
tho action of tho Legislature in tho
matter of investigating tho accounts of
George O. Evans, In the" settlement of
tho war claims of tho Stato. Itislm
peratlve that tho wholo subject shall bo
made clear to the peoplo, and If, as
alleged, enormous commissions havo
been retained without eanctjon of law,
tho amounts should bo rofunded, and
tho defaulter punished. Thoro has
heretofore been no disposition to Inves
tigate tho matter nnd Itisfulftlmo that
something was dono. It has been
charged that Evans has retained heavy
commissions on sums collected beforo
his appointment. If this can bo proved
then without a doubt, tho Stato Prison
is tho proper placo for this man. It
would seem to bo a belief of men of It Is
class that aovornment robborJes aro
never punished. Wo earnestly trust
that, In this Instance, if fraud bo prov
ed, tho Legislature may demonstrate
the falsity of tho idea. j
Tho tJocrnor's Message.
Wo havo published tho Governor's
Jlessngo this wick, omitting only somo
matters too trivial for notice, for tho
purpose of keeping our readers fully
Inlormed on tho questions of the day.
It Is lengthy, vorhoso nnd weak. Tho
recommendations, In somo Instances,
will bo adopted, but tho most of them
will bo passed over In sllonce.' In tho
" Uvnnsswlndlo" question, nn attempt
is mado to whitewash tho delimiter, but
It falls to convince tho reader that
Evans did not steal $201,010 of tho pub
lie money, nnd that Geary's admluls
tratlon did notglvo him tho opportunity
to do so.
Tho Governor also recommends n
reorganization of tho military; that
they should bo paid by tho State trea
sury, Ac. Wo do not thinK our peopio
caro nbout erecting n standing army.
Tho uso mado of tho mill tin in Louisi
ana and tho South generally, shows not
only tho cxponslveness of such a pro
ceeding, but that such troops too genor
ally aro usod for tho purpo30 of breaking
down tho civil law and accustoming
tho peoplo to military rule. Howovor,
as it is tho-last annual mcssago of his
Excellency, wo should patiently bear
James FIsli, Jr.
Tho cold blooded murder of Col. risk
by Edward Stokes, on Saturday last,
has sent a thrill of horror throughout
tho country, and In tho terrible manner
of ills death, his misdeeds aro forgotten
Tho murdorcd man is too well known
to need description at our hands. Ho
was In many respects n rcmarkablo
man. llegluning life as a pedlar, ho
eventually went to New lork and
bceamo involved in tho Infamous mani
pulations of tho Erlo It. It., which
eventuated in tho ontiro control of tho
road passing Into tho hands of himself
and Jay Gould. Ho was shrewd and
unscrupulous, daring and reckless, and
possessed of a wonderful clfrontery.
His lovo of display ami notoriety was
intense All are familiar with his
Opera House squabbles, his ballot
dancers, his Colouolcy of tho Ninth
regiment, his steamboat speculations,
and his Erlo II. It. management. Ho
nover missed an opportunity to put
himself beforo tho public, and his ccccn
trickles and utter disregard for public
opinion mado him nt oncotho laughing
stock and tho sourcoof amuzo merit to
tho people. Of his faults, nnd they
were many, it is not necessary now to
speak. Whatever tlioy may havo been,
they did not justify tho horror of his
death. With all ills imperfections on
his head ho has gone beforo tho Great
Judge. It Is only left for us to bring
his inunUrer to justice.
Tlio "(Jrccn Short" Case.
It was widely proclaimed by thoRo
publlcau press previous to tho meeting
of tho present' Legislature, that their
memberf1 being in tho majority would
set tho example of moderation and fair
ness. Their first act was a gross out
rage. Luther Green, Democrat, was
elected Representative from Warren
county by fifteen majority, and a certifi
cate given him signed by tho twenty
flvo return judges of tho county, who
having performed tho duty required of
them atllonrnnri flnnllv. Mr nnum
appeared before tho bar of tho House,
but when tho returns were read, to his
surprise found another return purport
ing to bo signed by thirteen return
Judges, gotten up four days beforo tho
meeting of tho Legislature, certifying
that Mr. Short teas elected.
A committee was at once appointed
by the Speaker, to decide who had tho
prima facie right to a seat, which com
mittee reported next morning in favor
of Mr. Short, refusing to give Mr. Green
even a day to consult counsel or prcparo
his case, whilo his opponent was repre
sented beforo them by an ablo attorney.
Tho voto was a strict party ono, except
that Josephs of Philadelphia, for rea
sons well understood at Harrlsburg,
sided with tho Republicans.
Wo nover heard of a moro outrageous
trick nor of an act in such flagrant vio
lation of law. Tho precedent has now
ucen cstauusneu mat although a man
may havo been duly elected, and tho
return unanimously signed, his oppon
ent by secret solicitation, by bribery or
corrupt means may obtain anothor cer
tificate from men whoso duties havo
ceased, and thus obtain a placo tho peo
plo refused to glvo liiin. Two of theso
signatures were in poncii, but oven If
regularly mado, It was without a formal
meeting, without a notlco to tho other
candidate, or to tho other return Judgoa.
A party which keeps itsolf In power by
fraud, is unworthy of tho public confi
dence. From the report or tho Superinten
dent of Soldiers' Orphans', it appears
that thero have beon issued 70 orders
for admission to tho Orphans' schools,
to children from Columbia Couuty.
Tho following statistics relatlvo to tho
religious belief of tho fathers of children
In schools may not bo uninteresting.
Of 3.007 children actually In school

reported as members of somo church,
leaving 059 unconnected with church
or not reported.

A correspondent of tho Now York

"Wo havo In this Stato about 15,000

Tho voto shows that thero wcro up

nepotism, avarice, and gro33 ignoranco
of his duties as President, together
