THE DEMOCRATIC CANDIDATE FOR THE PRESIDEN
CY—MU. RAMIE' ROUSTS THE 'NAME OF A DEMO
CRAT OF HIS ACIWAINTANCE IN SOUTHERN IL
POST OFFIS, CONFEDRIT X ROADS,
(Which is in the State uv Kentucky,
June 1, 1868.
The matter uv a Presidenshal candi
date hez opprest me, and hez also exer
cised the gigantic intellex who congre
gate at the Corners. We hey decided
that Cheef lust's Chase won't do. We
kin support him chearfully, for his meth
od of conduktin the impeachment trial
-V 11) 1' VITTANI.
hez satisfied us uv his hankerin for a
standin in our party. Besides this, Navin
made a start, we consider hint safe, any
bow. The man which kin take a nonn
nashen at our hands, or identify hisself
with us, may alluz be countid onto. The
Ablishnists never forgive sich, and ther
ain't no other place to go.. When John
son and Doolittle and that crowd left the
Ablishnist, I knew wher they would
land better than they did. Facilis de
covius avant *, which hein translated into
the vulgar tongue, means, the road to
hell is ruecadatnized. Hancock won't
do, becoz our Southern brethren hey a
prejoodis again the Hag he drawd his
sword under. Pendleton wood anser
the west hut the east, is opposed to him;
Seymour• wood do the east, but the west
is opposed to him. I therefore, after
giving the matter uiatoor considerashen,
hey desided to propose for the posishn,
the name uv Jethro L. Kippins, uv Alex
ander county, Illinoy.
I hey the folleriu reasons for insistin
on his uominashen :
1. He's geographically level. By look
: in on the map, it will be seen that that
county in Illinoy, is the extreme south
westerly part of the State. IL is a
Northern country with Southern ideas.
Across the river is Kentucky, west is
south-eastern Missouri and east is lower
Injeany. They grow tobacco there, and
yearn after slave labor ez intensely ez
we do across the river.
2. Nobody knows him. The name uv
Jethro L. Kippins hez never filled the
soundin trump uv fame. With him on
our tikit several pints wood be gained.
On all the questions on which there
is a doubt in the minds uv the Democra
cy Jethro L. Kippins is uncommitted.
He is unembarrassed with views, and on
troublesome questions hez narry an
opinyun. The trouble Pendleton hez
with the greenbax wood not affect him,
neither wood any uv them other ques
tion which are ruther embarrassin than
otherwise. He hez but one political
principle, which he holds is enuff for any
one man. and that is Democracy, ez it
hez bin, ez it is, and ez it may be. He
beleeves-tiverly in the cues -nr43inumert;.
he holds close to Onesimus and Hagar,
and hez sworn a solemn oath that - no
nigger shel ever marry a daughter uv
lizzen. This noble sentiment Inch alluz
strikes a responsive cord in evry Demo
cratic buzzum wood be emblazoned on
the Kippins banner.
3. Jethro L. Kippinses posishen on 1
the war question is happy. He opposed
all the steps wich led to it, and when it
finally broke out he proposed the only
troo Demokratic way uv stoppin it. It
was his opinyun that we hed no rite to
coerce the South—that there wuz no
warrant in the Constooshen for any Bich
perceedin. "Ef Boregard fires onto
Major Anderson," sed he, "let Major
Anderson go afore the nearest Justice
uv the Peace and hey him bound over to
Xeeptitiertiew. — ^LeThir wbu L is 141 The
peece, and the Justis can't enforce his
warrant, why that ends it. We can't go
beyond the Constooshen." After hos
tilities actooally begun, his posishen
wuz eminently satisfactory to both sides.
He wuz in favor uv the war, but opposed
to its prosekooshen. He remarkt that
the south hed committed a indimereshen,
but were he in Congris he shoodent
vote for nary man nor dollar for carryin
on a war agiu em. His two sons served
in the war—one in the Confedrit service
and one in the Fedrel—both ez sutlers.
The war bore heavy on him—he made
great sacrifices. Three other sons he
supported in Canada doorin the contin
uooance uv the unnachrel strife.

or three hundred years old. Ef so, it
will hey to be pared down. He hez been

native township, wick gives him a splen

5. He's trooly nashnel in his views.
He knows no north, no south, no east,
no west, no uothin. That lastqualisca
shen mite prejudis some agin him, but to
inc its his chief holt. For with sick a
man iu the Presidential chair I wood be
safe. We hey au abundance uv sich men
ez Wood, Seymour, Vallandyguin, et set
try, who kin manage a President, but
who are too odorous to be electid very
much to that posishen themselves.
Therefore, its nessary that precisely sich
a man ez I hey described be electid ;
and the fact that Chase knows too much
is the ebjection I hey to hini. Polk wuz
manageable, Pierce eminently so, and
poor old Bookaunon wuz wonderfully
Sich is the candidate wich I present.
There are many pints in his favor. Our
people wood to-wunst exclaim, "Who'n
thunder is Kippins ?" and before they
cood find out the day uv election wood
be on em, and they'd vote him. His hevin
no record is also in his favor. Wat wood

Wood give of they lied no . record I A
record is like a tin kittle to a dog's tale
