Black Republican abomination o( "loy

kingly namo of loyilly, is right, then
the lilack lti-publican party is right,
then the people, are right in supiorl
ing that party, and the Democrats are
wrong in opposing it. If tho Aboli
tionists havo a right to overthrow tho
irovernmcnt of Stutes, and to subju
gate white men, for tho purpose of
reducing thorn to an equnlity with no
grocs, then they havo a right to all
tho natural fruit o! that subjugation.
Tho holding of Stales in tubjugatton
can bo no greater crimo than the very
act of subjuijatuiij, and whon you have
educated the
people to

Tho principle admitted for any time,
is good for all time. These Democrat
ic leader went over themselves into
the filthy slough of ISIuck Republican
loyalitm alia despotism, alias devilism
of every infernal type, und did their
utmost to drag tho people after them,
and now are trying to drag them out
again with just about the same kind
of rope or principles, with which they
dragged tlieiu in. ain attempt
Worse than vain to expect to drag
the people out of thu Abolition slough
with Abolition roties! If the Demo-
cratie party is ever to return to power,
it must be through other agency, and
by other leadership, than that w hich
carried it over to the support uf its
enemies. The organization, tho ma
chinery of the party, is worn out and
bruken in tho service of its enemies.
It smells at once of the stench of ne
groes and the blood of white men ! It
is loalhesome to every Democrat, that
is, to every Democrat who has refused
to be a party to the stupendous crime
of the Abolition war. If tho Demo
cratic party, we say, ever returns to
power, it must be bv other means thau
tliis old filthy, venal, bloody, negroized
machinery of tho party organization.
The Democratic principle is not hurl.
It is as bright, as pure and glorious us
when it started iu the great struggle
of 1776. Give it a parly machinery
worthy of it strength, and it will
draw forth again tho popular enthu
siasm which was always tho forerun
ner and companion of victory. Do
we believe it possiblo for the party to
achieve success through tho leader
ship of the very men by whom it has
been sold !' The return of the Demo
cratic party, or rather of tho Demo
cratic principle to power, (for after all,
that is tlio only question wortli con
tending for,) must never be looked
for on this prostituted, bloody, negro
worshiping hnsis or loyaHy. The De
mocracy of the United States was al
ways purely white It tan never ro
turn to power except as a vhitr man's
pany. x no Biici ipi io ma ie u a mu-
f,o ,ai1y, or something between a
party. 1 lie attempt to make it a mu
white man and a negro, ha resulted
in nothing but disgraceful and contin
uous defeat. Theso cunning or rather
foolish leaders have been trying to split
the difference between a white man
and a negro, and tho result is, thut
they have made political Mongrels of
themselves. What we want, what
we must have, nay, v hat wo will have,
j is a purely tru'fe mi' party. A par-
j ly oused upon winte supremacy, on
precisely tho Bamo foundations which
were laid down by tho wise and pa
triotic founder of this government, is
the only organization w hich can sue
eessfully cope with tho negro party.
To concede anything to such a party
is to give awaya portion of our strength

These considerations havo led us to

whereupon the consUiblo, lamed F.l

knowledge of hi congregation, and
they were incensed that their religious

On the night of October 14th, when
Wells, Farrn A Co.'s fast stage arrived
at Crystal Luke, near the summit of
tho Sierras, on the Donnor Lake
route, a man who had been riding on
tho back part of the stage walked in
to tho house, and as lie approached
the fire, fell to tho floor and expired.
A doctor who examined tho body said
the deceased had been frozen to death.
No ono knew who the person was, or
where ho got on tho stage; he had no
baggage, and was only protected from
the cold by a linen coat.
