WE begin to understand why it is that
the Democracy devote so much of their
attention to General Butler. Grant said,
in one of his reports, that Butler was
"bottled up," and the Democracy will
"go for" anything that is bottled up.

fought on the Union side at Gettysburg,

since our President, ABRAHAM LINCOLN,
was brought to sudden death by the as
sassin's bullet. His death was the oc

field was the march of a conqueror, whose

buried on a beautiful spring-day in May,
186.'t, in the cemetery at Oak Ridge,
Springfield. On our first page we give
au illustration of the tenth which has
been erected to his memorv.
Is we stand in the presence of' this
tenth we remember the first months of
the secession movement—the violent
threats of war uttered by the Southern
branch of the Democratic party of these
days—the peaceful declarations of the
newly inaugurated President. which said
to Southern Democrats, "If war must
come, not we but you arc to be the lig
gressois:" We remember the terrible
struggle- of four years. and how, when it
was over, and the people were uniting in

We do not forget that the violence of
the Democratic press, which held up
Lincoln as a tyrant and a usurper, led to
this tragedy. And if the assassin was
urged on to his work by this partisan
violence, it is now pretty clearly evident
that Southern revolutionists have fully
learned the lesson in which Booth had
been instructed. They have conic to un
derstand what is meant by terrorism—to
appreciate the use of the assassin's
weapons. The investigation recently
made as to Ashburn's assassination, fully
sustains the charges made by Repub
licans, h th as to the motives and the
agents concerned in the murder. From
every portion of the South we hear daily
of the murder of 'Union men. There are
special organizations to carry on this
bloody work. And these murderers are
the allies of the Democratic party. A
Mobile Democratic sheet explicitly de
clares that the Congressional plan of re
storation shall be defeated, even if it
should be necessary to resort to the dag
ger of a Brutus in order to accomplish
that result. Is it not time that this
violence should be suppressed by the. up
rising of the people in their majesty, and
by their repudiation of the party which
threatens revolution in the event of its
success, and war in the event of its failure,
and which courts the alliance of assas
sins ?—llarper'.l Weekly.

THAT the Republican party deserves
the support of the nation, because in all
its millions of men, not one of them was
ever known to lift a hand against the flag
of his country. Every dictate of patri
otism prompts its continued support.
1)o NOT FORGET, whenever you see a
crippled soldier, that he was crippled by
the "Democratic'' rebels, who made the
war, and who are now shouting lustily for
Seymour and Blair. For every soldier
slain, for every hero crippled, for every
war widow, and for every soldier's or
phan, the "Democratic" party is alone
Do NOT FORGET that the men who
cursed our dying heroes at Andersonville
are now shouting for Seymour and Blair.
DO NOT FORGET, when you go to the
polls, that the Democratic party forced
the nation into war, and ig thus responsi
ble for the national debt, the slaughter
and bloodshed, and for a million weeping
widows and mourning orphans,our friends,
neighbors, and relatives.
Do NoT FORGET that the Thirty-ninth
and Fort ieth Republican Congresses have
removed $191,000,000 of taxes that but
for this action the people' would now be
called upon to pay.
Do NOT FORGET that Grant fought
speculators and camp followers all through
the war. lie saved many millions while
Secretary of War. As President, he
would make the whole Administration a
model of integrity and economy.
DO Nov Foitoor that the Republican
party is the party that saved the nation's
life, that it is the only party pledged to
the support of' "All Rights rim All"—the
poor as well as the rich, the ignorant as
well as the learned; that it is the party
that protects labor, that imposes the bur
dens of taxation, for the support of gov
ernment, upon the wealthy man and upon
on the luxuries of life, and thus lifts the
burden from the shoulders of the farmer
and laboring men.
Do NOT FORGET that the Democrats
called the soldiers " Lineflu hirelings,"
"mercenaries," "janizaries, ' "blue-back
ed butchers," and said that they "were
tight4ng to destroy the Union." how is

Major General Edward M. M'Cook, of
Ohio, a brave and gallant officer during
the war, and now United States Minister
to the Sandwich Islands, in a letter dated
Honolulu, Aug. 29, to Senator Conness,
writes as follows :
"The news of the Democratic nomina
tions has arrived, and I think they are

bination that could have been made—the
War Democrats won't vote for Seymour,
because he was a Copperhead, and the
Copperheads won't vote for Blair, be
cause he wore a blue instead of a gray
uniform. Much to my disgust I saw that
a cousin of mine, Geo. W. M'Cook, had
proposed the name of Seymour to the
Convention, as the man who would drive
the Radical cabal, at Washington, from

I would like to follow hint around and
neutralize the effect of his rhetoric, by
stating the fact that he is the only one of
all his name who supports Seymour and
Blair, and the only male member of the
family who was not in the army during
the war. I should think the spirits of his
dead father and brothers, who laid down
their lives in defence of the Union, would
haunt him with continual reproaches. I
think this a pretty good illustration of the
way things will go at the election ; the
soldiers will vote as they shot—against
the rebels—and Copperheads will be

Toombs and Cobb, a triumvirate of
rebels, and at the head of this troupe is
none other than Horatio Seymour, of
New York, who, without actually enlist
ing in the rebellion, dallied with it, and
addressed its fiendish representatives in
New York as "Friends." - A party with
such leaders and such a chief is the rebel
party. Such a party, so filled and per
meated by treason, cannot alter any shib
boleth of loyalty. Every loyal word
must stick in its throat, as "amen" stuck
in the throat of Macbeth after the mur

Do Not Forget
The Democratic Leaders
Though, learning wisdom from the re
sult of the recent elections, sonic of the
Democratic sheets have ceased their
abuse of General Grant, many of the
Seymour mouthpieces continue their ef
forts to rob him of his military laurels,
and make him appear as one of the worst
men in the country. The following are
some of the terms (culled from Demo
cratic sheets) which were applied to the
Lieutenant General before and after the
avowal of his political sentiments :
"A great soldier."
"An example of magnanimity."
"A great captain."
"The stuff of which statesmen are
"A leader of rare endowments."
"A man whose valor saved the country."
"The conqueror of the rebellion."
"The hero of many victories."
"The saviour of our institutions."
"Doubtful in his policy."
"Well enough but for his associations."
The prospective tool of the Radicals."
"A general whose victories were too
costiv to be valnaltie."
"The lucky Mall to whom Lee surrend
ered, when he ought to have surrendered
"The military blunderer."
"The butcher oC the national army "
"The brainless tanner who aspired to

"A Poor tool in Radical hands."
"Drunkard!" "Liar!" "Sot !" "Fool !"
Young Men !
Who are about casting your first votes,
do you ever read History ? If you do,
how can you vote for Seymour and Blair
Their sentiments are precisely the same
as those held by the father of the late
rebellion, John C. Calhoun. Conse
quently had you lived in the days of Gen
eral Jackson, you would have been a nuli
fier. Had you lived in the days of the
revolution what would you have been ?
To be a Democrat, you must advocate
democratic principles. The first of these
' principles is that a majority of the peo
ple shall rule ; and second, that Congress
represents the people. In neither of
these doctrines do the present leaders of
the party, which styles itself democratic,
believe. Seymour,for the sake of slavery,
was willing that the Union should be de
stroyed. Blair, more unscrupulous still,
talks of playing the despot and tyrant,
and destroying Congressby the aid of an
tinny. There is, besides, other food for
reflection. Ask yourself how it comes
that nearly every rebel now calls himself
a Democrat. Alexander If. Stephens, in
his late work, justified secession, and
makes no acknowledgment of having
done wrong. The rebel General Lee but
three weeks ago, talked of the " just
rights" of the South, and has never ac
knowledged to have done wrong, although
he, with thousands of others, not only
perjured himself in law, but became a
murdering traitor to the Union Ise, too,
calls himself a Democrat. Do you want
to be one of the number? Seymour does
believe in coercion. Restore the rebels
to power, and if they again secede, what
will Seymour clop Remember what Bu

way of helping the working classes. By
sympathizing with the rebels during the
