Therefore, let Ihe Democracy remain true
to itself and its time-honored principles,
and if it fails, let it dio battling for the
ever living truths proclaimed by the fath
ers of the Constitution.
Persistency and conhistoncy in politics,
if founded in justice, law and right, will
sooner or later assert its power and be
triumphant. Let us, therefore, adhere
closely to tho theory of government upon
which tho Union was originally founded.
Tho present delusion must subside. Like

nol possess sene. Mr. Lvoielt failed as
an orator, because the occasion wa a
mockery, and he knew it, and the Presi
dent succeeded, becauso he acted natu
rally, without sense and without con
straint, in a panorama which was gotten
up more for his benefit, ami the benefit of
hi party than for the glory of the nation
and llie honor of the dead.
We can re idily conceive that the thou
sands who wont there went as mourners,
to view the burial place of their dead, to
consecrate, so lar as human agency could,
the ground in which tho slam heroes of
the ualion, standing in tho relationship,
lo I hem of fatheis, husbands, brothers, or
connected by even remoter lies of mar
ringe or consanguinity , were to bo interred.
To them Iho occasion was solemn ; with,
lliem the motivo was honest, earnest and
honorable. Ilul how was it with tho chief
actors in the pageant, who had no dead
buried, or to be hurried there: from none'
of whose loins had sprung a solitary hero,,
living or dead, of this war which was be
gotten of their fatialiciwu and has been
ruled by their whims?
They atood there, upon that bloody
ground, not with hearts Btricken wilh
grief or elated by ideas of true glory, but
coldly calculating the political advantage,
which might be det ived from the aolutun
corenioiiici of the dedication.
Wo will not include iu this category of
hcaitlcss men the orator of tho day; but
evidently he was paralyzed by tho knowl
edge that he was surrounded by unfeel-.
iug, mercenary men, roady to sacrifice,
their countrymen for the bafe purpose of
retaining power and accumulating wealth.
His oration was therefore cold, insipid,
unworthy the occasion and the man.
We pass over Iho silly remarks of tho
President. For the credit of tho nation
wo ate willing that tho veil of oblivion
shall bo dropped over them, and that
they shall be no more repealed, or thought
Put tho Secretary of State is a man of
note. He il was who first fulminated the
doctrine of tho "irrepressible conflict;"

and which must end in the ruin of the
nation. The dead of Getfysburg will
speak from their tombs ; they will raise
their voices against this great wickedness
and implore our rulers to discard from
