PomEitoY, in his last issue
(La Crosse Democrat) says he "is now
and always has been, a strict temperance
man ; that he uses no intoxicating drinks
whatever. Nor will he employ, in any ca
pacity, a man who indulges in fits of intox
ication." If it is true that lie is'a strict tem
perance man,' and that the vile obscene
and profane reading matter with which
his paper is lilted week after week, is
not the result of strong drink, then we
arc forced to the conclusion that he is by
nature a beast and nothing else.
KENTUCKY gave eight thousand
Democratic majority. They will also
carry, by corresponding majorities, the
Five Points, Bedford street, Sing Sing
and the Eastern Penitentiary. The
chosen homes of the Democracy are
ulcers on the body politic.
SEYMOUR, though rich like Buchanan,
never invested a dollar in governmen
bonds when the fate of the nation de
pended upon finding means to pay.

First. That the Democratic party forced
upon the country and the Republican
Administration an expemlitti re of more
than Four Thousand Millions of Treasure.
.4econd. That the rebellion Was begun
for the express purpose of twerthrowing
Republican Institutions, and establishing
upon their ruins titSlaveholding oligarchy:
and, that all the burdens of national tax
ation, p.xst, present, and prospective, are
the necessary consequences of the Dem
ocratic rebellion.
Third. That the vast sacrztice of life on
the battle-lied], and in the hospitals and
prisons, is
,justly changeable to the trea
sonable action and purposes of the Dem
ocratic leaders.
Fourth. That in preparation for this
rebellion, the whole power of the last
Democratic! Administration was exhaust
ed, the public Treasury plundered, the
Navy scattered or d:smantled, and the
Army placed under commancl of traitors,
and quartered beyond the reach of the
incoming Administration, and within the
territories of the contemplated revolu

Fifth. That all these acts were done in
obedience to the orders of the Demo

and with the approval of the Democratic
leaders in every section of the country.
Sixth. That these same leaders con
