"Tana Liners" is the name of the Grant
and Colfax Campaign Club recently organ
ized at • Freeport, 111. It is officered by a
Captain, First and Second Lieutenants and
Sergeants. Their uniform consists Of oil
cloth navy caps, oil-cloth capes, and torches,
similar to those of the "Wide Awakes" of
1860. They mean work, and that is what
all Republicans everywhere ought to pre
pare for immediatilv.
Tan votes.of the House yesterday indicate
a decided. inclination to shelve the very
elaborate which has beentor acme
days under" discussion, and to replace it by
a speciatmeasure, leating out the adminis
trative sections of the present bill or even,
perbapicotting it do to its whisky and
- tobacco sections merelY and passing it in
that shape.. Such Is said to be the only bill
which can pass the Senate at this session. .
We do'net think it is seriously intended
to do more`With M. Packer than attempt to
concentrate the vote of . Pennsylvania
which gives serious tokens' of breaking in
upon the 'unit arnutgement.—Post.
What Ale matter ? Aro Pendleton and
"those bonds", to be repudiated by other
.conntiet'as well as Allegheny ? Or has the
- Hancock party - sueceeded in drawing off
the greater . number of delegates? Or is Old
Greenbacks to be master of the situation ?
Perhaps the Beinalie, which now appears to
be the Pemocratic organ here, can shed
some light upon this dark point. •
Tun English Idlnistry finds it impossible
to temporise with the political situation and
has detormined apon a dissolution at Par
liamentin October, to be followed by a new
vlection 'immediately. An earlier date was
not necessary to be 'fixed upon, since the
period inclose at hand for the regular close
of the present session, the vacation con

Tim President nominates Mr. Wm. A.
Evenrs, of New York, recently one of his
counsel, for the office of Attorney General.
The nominee is a lawyer, of unquestitmed
ability; and, apart from certain extra-pro
fessional zeal which he recently exhibited
in behalf of hat distinguished client, a
publican of the most decidedly radical poli
tics. , His speeches in the Canvass 'of last
year in:New York were most spirited and
emphatic.denuncietion&of the entire policy,
of trio President. There is no doubt that
his nomination will be confirmed and, as
little that a few months of familiarity with
the Executive head of the goverdtheht, in
the discharge of the regular , duties of his
office, will effectually cureMr. It vewe of
his new.borr admiration for his late client.

The opinion has peen held in some quar
ters that political parties in this country are
soon to be disintegrated, re-chiystalizing in
new forms, abandoning the exhausted issues
of the past, and shaping their future alms .un-
der the light which experience affords, and
which the wonderful progress of events in
the eight or ton past years has made so pow
erfully luminous. The 'same spectllations
insist thatthe cohesion, whichstill unites the
great parties respectively, is only theriatur
al result of, the conflict which
aspects of the rebellion haverireSetited, and"
that, with the Waningineniory of a struggle
which, like all other - past, political experi
ences, even the - most criticA, ifooner
orlater, be forgotten by a people so mercu
rial as ours, this cohesioifo is 'fast losirig its
power, and the parties, which it has hereto
fore united, are 'on the verge of a more or
less complete resolution into their, Primary
elements. These speculations have much
plausibility, and some little truth at the lot
ion. For ext,lmple, there can be no 'doubt
that the persistent obstinacy with which
one party, the Democratic, insists upon oc
cuffing reactionary ground,--proposing
absolute obstruction to development of
political truth in the progress of events, arid
bent upon reiterating the dogmas, and
upon re-establishing the policy which hits'
once come , so near proving fatalle the Re
public, and from which only the strong
common sense and the unselfish patriotism
of trie great body of the people have saved
us---iloes exert a powerful influence in ,main
taining the solidarity of the Republic in par
ty. The Union, its perpetuity as a whole,
its protection 'against all assaults Whether
political or armed, and the complete identi
fication of the Democratic party with the
principles and with that overt act of armed ii
rebellion which have menaced that nion
heretofore, and continue to threaten it now,
in a more pacific but no less dangerous
,ia certainly, the keystone in the
arch of Republican politics. And this holds
Republicanism together, a solid massive
pile which no load can crush, and'which all
the - angry elements shall beat powerless
against forever. The Republican party em
bodies the simple principle of Patriotic
Duty, of a single-minded and detioted fideli
ty to thernion against all its enemies„ and
it will continue to exist and to grow strong
er, so long as the Democratic party remains
aggressive, persisting hills old policy of dis
loyal opposition, and still rejecting the, re
sults which Liberty and - Law have aecom
plished at so much cost.
The time may come—we confess we have
little hope of it soon—when the Democratic
party shall be wiser, and accepting the un
conquerable facts of - 4. eipertence, shall
forego any farther opposition to the pro
greas of Personal Freedom and to the com
plete vindication of Constitutional Order.
Then, there would be barely a possibility
that the Republican lines might be relaied:
then, relieved from the Democratic antago
nism, with its powerful outside pressure re
moved, our party might be more free to
yield to the predicted tendency to disin
tegration; but this is not likely. The elemen
tary Republican prinoltilec of devotion to
the Union beyond and above all other con
siderations, is a pritimple too simple, too
obvious, too natural and in Itself too hides
tnictible; it will live irresiatihle in its
matured vigor, and never to be unrepre
sented by a popular and powerful : organise
tion. No other single idea can sustain a
political party; bat this is the magnificent
and only possible exception.' The party of
the Union will be co-existent with the
Union itself. Its organization, will, as
times change, take up or abandon minor,
issues, as they shall illustrate the leading
convictions of patriotism, hi: connection
With the requirementa of the hour, but,
whatever comes, the great party will con
tinue to muster its solid columns about the
flag of the Republic.
While there can be no Republican disor
ganization so long as the -Democracy been
pies its historical position of offense, there
are very clear, indications that the latter
party is on the eve of its dissolution. Apart
,frorn its prevailing spirit ofdisloyalty to the
Union, it has no other common ground
for its masses to stand upon. When it
ceases to be "a party of opposition, it ceases
to be a party at ail, for no other common
idea remains to it. Once, united upon all ,
questions, facile under the hands of its lea
ders, and accustomed to differ only upon
personal preference's,' which, hOWever set=
tied, never imperilled the party success, for
getting all strifes at the first= sound or the
long—roll of the battle dram, the party pre
served its national character, maintained its
harmonious efliciencY, and achieved its suc.:
cessive victories._ The ause stands far other
wise, now. It is united upon no national
principle; pn Abe contrary,the party is rack
ed by the sharpest doctrinal conflicts,
froixi which no possible solution can redeem
it and it awaits their forteal adjtidication
only to renew these conflicts with a fatal
resolution. The Democracy are not the'
party of progress; but progress has never
theless touched its organization at hist;
it_ , has reached a conflict of princi
ple for the first time in its history,
thus illustrating the march
_of. ideas:
In this conflict it meets (Resolution, and
this illustrates how hollow aud unsubstan

'lt is believed that the completiti of this
road may be steered, if the pe ple most
deeply interested,.those living along the line
i ii
in Allegheny and Washington ch6nties and
in these cities, shall " succeed ihinlahng the
comparatively small sum of $300,000 -
ward the expenses of its final completio .
It is upon that condition that - the , Penns 1-
yank Central Company undertakes to -
ish, the road for use. he ability g d
faith of that corporati are not to be qes
doped. Very pro , y, the citizens of th,
4 1•
region to be traver d regard this pro est
Lion as a very liberal - one,' and are ma 'lig
extraordinary efforts. to meet its to s.
Thus far, they- are. not successful. The
country , is at this time comparatively" poor,
and there bairn - been periods when a half
million of dollars could be easier mad' up
along the line than the sum specified ow,.
We understand;linitiver,-that the`con try
i l t
feels confident of its ability to make 'up
$200,000 of the amount. So much has not
Yet been positively secured, but the frie ds
of the new'. road along the line feel them
'selv-es able to guarantee that it shall be done.*
For the residue, of 0100,000, they ask, the
aid'-of the business men of these cities, and
a delegation from Washingthn and the
country this aide of it, will shortly. be rein
forced by a comMittee of our own citizens,'
andwill canvass these cities for the deficient
amount. We bespeak for the enterprise the
just, not simply the generous, support of
our • people. The Pennsylvania Central
Company,tin aiding the project at a very
Considerable cost, lum a right to ask that it
shall be recognized and • sustained by an ad
ghat() exhibition of local favor, and the
sum named is very low, reference being had
tothe total cost of work and its importance,
when completed, to the business interests
of all this region. The country has done
and will do all it can; failing of entire suc
cess, it has aright to ask this very limited
aid from these wealthy cities, which could
well afford to donate the amount asked for
outright, the benefits to its buiiness result
ing from the road when finished repaying it
amply in a twelve-month.,.
m We trust, there
fore, that every business an in these cities
willbe prepared to rrspond to the appeal.
- The Democrats of the Southern States
are really in advance of. the Northern
Democratic leaders in several important
respects. For instance, the Alabama Dem
ocratic State Convention, which met at
Montgomery on Thursday, adopted the fol
lowing resolution as part of its platform:
"Resolved, That slavery having been
prohibited in the State of jlabama by a
convention of the people thereof, held in
September, 1865, we hereby again proclaim
our faithful adherence to that ordinance,
and we assure the people of the United
States that there are no laws in force in this
State, enacted by our authority, which
make any distinction in the protection
which they give to the person and property
of both races; and we hereby declare our
solemn purpose, that these laws shall be
faithfully and impartially administered as
soon as the military are withdrawn and we
are permitted to manage our own affairs."
There are promises made in this resolu
tion which scarcely any Northern Demo
cratic Convention has yet made, or offered.
