Minutes fly, yet unperceived,

And your life into oblivion

If wasted time could e'er be bought.
When to six yonr mind is bent,
Do you feel your lime is wasting,
Hours allotted you were lent
Never to return again?
Seven, Eight, and Nine are comin,
Will yon ever live to hear them
Ah ! your death fast approacrung,
You'll be numbered with the dead.

The political remits of the present year
are the most important in the annals cf the
world Never before have interests of such
magnitude been submitted to the rulers of a
nation. They should be decided not by sel
fish magnates, governed by ' ambition and
regardless of the welfare of Ihe euhject
not by the leaders now wielding the power
of ihe nation, which for four years they
have not ceased 10 abuse but by the voice
of theveople freed from the yoke of tyran
ry ; the people, deeply interested in all
that concerns the national welfare, intelli

What are the issues involved in the pend
ing Presidential election 1 It is not a ques
tion of this or thai man to fill the Presiden
tial chair ; of ihis party or that to hold po
sitions of trust ; but it is a question wheth
er the country shall again be prosperous,
or be overwhelmed in rain whether heca
tombs shall continue to be sacrificed on the
altar of strife, perishing in vain, or peace
shall smile again upon the laud, and har
mony reign occe more where discord now
holds sway, his a quetion whether we
shall maintain, the liberty achioved by the
heroes of the Revolution, and embalmed
by the sages of the Republic in lhat noble
Constitution which . gave the country, two
generations of peace and unexampled pros
perity, or lose all constitutional freedom,
and be subjected lo the' away of leaders
wielding irresponsible power, based on co
ercion and upheld by military force embod
ied ia negro bayonets. Tfcete are some of
the questions the people are to decide in
the peading election; and that decision
will not cerely aifect tba destiny of thU
1 country, or ihis age, but the destiny of the
world, and the cause of advancement thro'
out all time.
The first issue that presents itself to the
: .u- t A J
coptinue vain effort, whose only result is,
and will ever be, the fruitless waste of blood
and treasure, with the sole effect of widen
ing the breach it is intended to close. The
issue is not whether Mr. Lincoln shall con-
I qner the Sonth, and then rule the North by
the Votes of bogus States, based on negro ,
bayonets he may paruallj occupy States
enough during the present campaign to en
able him to secure bis own election by their
votes of man of straw and he may do thi
under the plea of military necessity as a
means of ''suppressing the rebellion," bnt
the South will remain unconqcered, though

t- . i . t i- i i w i-
r.very mind not blinded by prejudice or am-
b.. . I, i ,
ition, mot see that by all the prohatnh-
lies of military science, that is impossible.
Tl, . . ., , ,
now is, whether by a return to cor-serva-
tive principles peace shall be restored, or
whe'her the best energies of the nation
shall be sacrified in vain, its resources
wasted, and the fresh young blood of its
best ar.d bravet hearts be poured out like
water, all to no purpose bat to fertilize the
soil and crimson the streams of the South
The Sontli cannot be restored to the TJni-
on by force. Doualas never uttered a truth
more pregnant wiih wi-dom than when he
exclaimed in oracular tones, "war is -Jis-
union ;" memorable words, uttered in one
of those sunflashes of nre-cier-ce which

r,r unnnmni msmni iruin, wr.icn
fo.ureaWw.il receive as an axiom, ar.d
reput tics will b'az .u on their banners a
warning against the perils of strife. When
all else associated with the name of Douglas
is IostburieJ sm.d the rubbish of lime, he
will be remembered away down in thecen-
luries to come those aces of happiness
ad piace as the sage who standing be
side the alf thai was beginning to yawn
in the midbt of ibis country, u'tered the
memorable words of warning, and died
with the noblei thoughts of his giant mind
fresh upon hi lip, ihe crowning utterance
of a royal intellect : ' W m Discmon."
Yes, war is disunion. God never design
ed Ilepttlics to be cemen ed with blood.
Like all hiah and noble thins they partake
cf ihe nature of Heaven descended truth,
whose Iriumphs are all bloodless. These
modern Uzzahs,who presumptuous!) strech
forth the unhallowed arm of violence to
support the ear of human progress, like
him of old, wiil be 6mitten of Heaven, and
leave their names a corse in the chronicles
of Freedom, to warn others from the path
where wisdom became madnets, philan
thropy changed to ferocity, and energy and
zeal only wrought out for their posesors a
heritage of infamy.
Ma. Lincoln seems to find friends no
where; the radicals are after him ; so is
Fremont ; so are the Democrats : so are the
"Dutch ;" so is everybody, save those hold
ing contracts, cr those expecting lo gel
ihem. By terns, he has succeeded in dis
gustit.g every par:y, every faction, every
class, save ihoee interested directly in shod
j jj. Among ail his opponents, however,
. not,e are B0 relentless us the Germans. Al
a fete meeting of the German American.
National Club of New Yuck City tl was
unanimously resolved :
That we will not support Abraham Lin
coln under any conditions whatever, it be

Says the German Am'ricau, a representa-
o German henor and
"ory, will take a sol
emn oalh not to rest until a complete change
ia the administration is ejected."
An exchange papea says : A man in a
certain village, with whom we were ac
quainted, having had sanded sugar sold to
him, inserted in the weekly paper the fol
lowing notice :
''I purchased of a grocer in this village a
quantity of sugar from whieh I obtained
one pound ol sand ; if the rascal who cheat
ed me wi l send to my address teven pounds
of good sugar, scripture measure ) I will
be SHti-fied ; if not I ihall expose him."
On Ihe following day nine seven pound
packages of sugar were left al his residence
from as many different dea'ers each up-
posing himself to be the person intended.

Three years has war and Abolitionism
reigned supreme over the Republic, its
laws, its ConMitution and its people vio.
lating the first, trampling .the Constitution
under foot, and tyrannizing over the peo
ple. Hundreds of thousands of our citi
zens have died on the field of battle or in
the hospitals ol wounds or di sease contrac
ted. Millions of parents have mourned
sons lost, wives bereaved of their husbands
and chddren of their lathers. Everywhere
the voice of lamentation has gone up to the
heavens, and the end is not yet.

Why is this? Are the Confederate troops
braver, belter fed, bet'er clothed, more in

When the war broke out, Mr. Lincoln, in
his Message, aured the people thai every
Southern State, if we except South Caroli
na, had a Union m?joritj. His alter action
showed that if he believed this he was de
termined to make it otherwise, for, ir. defi
ance of his own pledges to the contrary,
he commenced to war upon the rights of
. , 1 , . , , r .
the Sou-.hern people, which has made them
a unit in their de;ermined resistance.

The country overwhelmed with debt ;

fought for nearly three years, without a sin

state ot things should give way lo such a
fair concession of just rights as might have
saved the thirteen colonies lo England, and
by refusing 10 do which, she lost them. A

Tories of '76 and Abolitionists of '64.
"The Vallandigham peace men of lo-day
are counterparts of ihe Tories of the Rev
olution." Repubacm Pcper.
The above furnishes a fit opportunity for
saying something on ' the subject that we
have long been di posed to investigate. It
is this: The Vallandigham men the Demo
cratswho are more than one-half of the
N orth, stand precisely upon the platform,
advocate the same doctrines thai Washing
ton, Jefferson, Hancock, Adams and the
American patriots adhered to in 1776
Th ey are ihe lineal descendants, the trne
representatives, are, in fact, the true pat
riots of our day, while their opponents are
the lories of the times. We propose to de
fend thet-e propositions by arguments that
cannot be gaiusayed.
The Whig party of 1773 believed that the
only ira?, the only legitimate basis of the
government, was in the consent of the gov
erned. This is the Democratic doctrine ol
to-day. The Tory doctrine'ol 1776 was that
sjovernment did not rel upon the consent
of the people governed, bnt they relied in
stead upon the bayonet and sworj to hold
them in snbjection. The Tories of to-day
believe in the same thing. The patriot
Whig of 1776 favored rto other Union. This
is the Union the Democrats are for tn-daf.
The Tories of 1776 were not fjr a voluntary
Union, but for a coerced one, and so are
the Tories of 1864, alias the Administration
The British Tories of 1776 claimed that
the King had the rirjht to suspend the writ
ol habeas corpus ; proclaim martial law over
the whole country ; rret and throw into
prison, or transport into a distant Ui:d any
body he saw fn, without any legal power
bo; his own wiil. I he Abolition Tories ol
!64, in America, deletid the President in
the same exercises of the same usurpa'ion.
The American patriots of 1776 protested
againt-t ihem ; so do the American Demo
crats of 18G4. The Dr. ti-h Tories of 1776
sustained the King in endeavoring to iicitp
a demonstration among ihe slaves. The
Abolition Toriei ot to day are in favor of the
same measure. The patriots o! 1776 pro
tested againsr it in the Declaration of Inde
pendence. They denounced it as high
crime ajains; mankind ; so dn the Demo
crats of 1861. The lories of 1776 called
'.hem-elves ihe 'Kind's friends, exe'usive
loyalists.' The Tories of to-day flaunt un
uVr t(. same designation, 'loyalists, and
tell us the President can do no wrong, and
lhat we must not eppose any of his enor
mities. They are 'loyal' to the monarch,
but Ira tors -o li berty. This is the roaitim ol
the AboiitiuniMs oi to-day. The British
Tory believed that the King coul I set aside
the Constitution underthe 'war power.' So
does the American Abolitionist. We miht
follow the analogy much further.bnt it is use
less. British Toryism in 776, and Ameri
can Toryism in 1664, are identically the
same. Had the latter lived in 1776. thev
would have liken sides with the Briiih
Ti", while the Democrats would have
j been with Washington and Hancock. The
, Bf.irh Torje mgr9 a de isR1
are the Abolitionists. In view of the cur
i prising analogy between the parties, we
! suge-t to" our Democratic friends of the
press whether it would not be well to call
; the Abol.tionsts ihe Tories of 154. They
i aid tne Tone. the Democrats are the
'patrio;s.' Tiiey are the disciples of Kinu
George III, and his unscrupulous ainiier,
Lord North, while the Democrats are the
disciples ol Washington.

Monkey in Church.
There was once an eminent clergyman
by the name of Cassaubon, who kept in his
family a tame monkey, of which be waa
very fo'nd. This animal, which was allow
ed its liberty, liked to follow the minister
when be went ont, but on the Sabbath wee
nsnally thui up til! his owner was out of
sight, on his way to church. Bat one Sab
bath morning, when the clergyman, taking
his sermon under his arm, went out, the
monkey followed him Unobserved, and
watching the opportunity while his master
was speaking to a gentleman on the steps,'
ran up at the back ot the pulpit, and j imp
ed upon the sounding board. Here ha
gravely seated himself, looking round in a
knowing manner on the congregation, who
were greately am mused at so strange
spectacle. The service proceedee as usual,
while the monkey, who evidently much en
joyed ihe sight of so many people, occa
B.onally peeped over the sounding board,
to observe the movements of Lis maierj
who Wiis unconscious of his presence.
When the sermon commenced, ma.iy little
form were convulsed with longhter, which
conduct so shoe k ed the good pastor, that
he thought it his duty to administer a re
proof, which he did wiih considerable ac
tion of hi hand and arms. The monkey,
who had now become familiar with the
scene, imitated every motion, till at lat a
scarcely supj.reed smile (appeared upoa
ihe countenance of most of the audiance.
This occcrred. 100, in one of the most
folemn passages in the discourse ; and so
horrible did the ievity appear to ihe good
'nini'tar, that he launched forth into violent
rebuke, evrry word being enlorcaJ by great
energy ol action. AH this time the little
.linw overhead mimicked every moment
ith ardor and exactness. The acdidce,
witnessing the apparront c.tnipeti'ion be
tween the good man and hismoi.key, could
no longer retain the leat appearance of
composure, and burt into roars of laughter,
in the midst of which oce of the corgrega
:ton kindly relieved the horror ol the pastor
at the irreverence and impiety of hi (lock,
by pointing out the cause of the merriment.
Casting his eyes upward, the minister cocld
j'jpt discern the anitnil sia-'Jing on ihe end
of the sooiidiii-boarJ, and gesturing with
all bis miht, when he lound it diffictiil to
control himself, though highly exasperated
at the occurrence. He gave diiectioos 19
have the monky removed, and eat dawn to
compose himself, and allow his congfega
tion te recover their equanimity while the
order was being ooeyeJ.
''Dame the CcRsliluiion."--ia Abolition

expression has been Ircquently uitered by

noted nero philanthropist, adopts it.
