The Democratic Party and the Country.
The old issues that divided the Whig
and the Democratic parties, as national
organizations, have pretty much become
obsolete, and the rvhole tendency of par
ties for years past has been towards radi
calism, or jerhapswo should s iy, vltruism,
upon sectional questions every day nar
rowing down the differences tliat former-,
ly divided conservatism, till of late, those
who formcily differed moat earnestly
have found themselves nelim. In,.tlu.r
upon an entirely new political basis.
Four months aeo found us in a new ios
ition, because it found the country launch

pathway of civil war. The Democratic

must be arresled in its blind and reckless

Messrs. EJilom :
Since tho 10th of this month, a great
many persons in this county have been
sailing under the above caption. Eying
one of those common personages myself,
and not hiving an opportunity before, of
giving my endorsement of the result of
ihe late Primary Election, by your permis
sion, I will do so now, through the col-
umns of your paper,
In locking over the returns, as eiven
last week, I notice Hint only one hundred
undthirty-thm, free and independent tit-
I'7'6"8 0,t,lis county, wish me to continue
us a candidate, while fourteen hundred and
thlrty.-sU; (whoso voice I intend to heed.)
T- I- view ofthis
'uct' fc'enl'emen, you may dncoctinue the
announcement of my name, for I hare eon-
eluded, alter comparing figurct with him, not to
I " candidate ,,,ge, It is true, I have
oeen defeated gloriously, too but inise-
i 'Tt m
niy case, has plenty of company j
for, defeated candidates just now, are not
reason, hij claims were stroim"r than thosn
of any other mm, and his success certain ;
theiefore I never cutcriuinoil tho most
remote idea of success, but hopoil, by fol
lowing in his wake, tho precedent upon
which lie was nominated would not bo
disregarded throe years hence.
Upon thoso persons who promised mo
their support in townships whore there-,
turns show that I did not receive a vote
I have no refloclions to cast, lut would
merely suy to them, "honesty is tho best
policy." I will not condemn thein, but
cun only excuse them upon the samo
ground that a certain man named Jones,
did his friend Smith. Jones was a candi
date for office, and went to Smith to know
if he could depend on his support ? "Oh,
j 's" iJ -Smith, "I will vote for you, and
; do all cau for you." "Well, do," said
Jones, "and here is five dollars lo pay
your expeuses. I ho election passed oil,
nnd the returns showed that Jones hadn't
n tingle vote in .Smith's district, lie went
to his friend and si.l, "Smith, how does
il come that jn your district, where you
i promised to vote for me, and do nll you
I tiiii1,l Cult inn T Viiutl umifkiirAil n t rt t 9'
"Oh, w ell," said Smith, "1 will toll you all
about it. 1 tried to get every body I saw
to vote lur you ; I did all I could, and on
the day of the election I roluinod home,
went into my closet, got down on my
knees, and tried to persuado myself that
1 ought to voto for you, ar.d I'll bo d d
if I could doit!"
It muv be asked bv some, will I support
' j though rny party slay me, twill
serve it. I will not support a man, who
is not a strot-g Union man, at a timo liko
the present; when our country is in dan
gor ; but as I believe all our candidate
are such, 1 can snfoly say I will sopport
them. I am not of that peculiar cIium of
men, who, because they cannot rulo, they
would ruin. 1 won't secodo and run
against the tickot, for I am a Union man,
and opposed to secession. Tho only ob
jects 1 have in view, therefore, in this con
test, are tho success of the Democrat io
nominees, and the preservation of this
government. Trusting that both may bu
equally successful, I remain.
