The Democracy of the North will com
mit a fatal error if they accept the result 6f
he late Presidential election as an indica
tion from the hand of Dextiny to relax
their political action' until the openings o
tthe next campaign. The future welfare o
the republic depends upon the politics

the year 1865. "

corruption and cpmpolsion, attests that the
power of the Democracy, on a fair field, is
equal to iht vindication of Democratic
There is one feature in the result of the
Presidential election that goes far to re
concile the patriot to the bard fate of hi
country under four years more of Black
Republican misrule. The baleful meteor
that lingered in grief while in our political
atmosphere has vanished for ever. War
Democracy has fulfilled its miosiorf of dis
organization, and like any other 'pestilence
will be remembered only for "the evil it
has done. '
The itsue now before the people is the
final struggle between Centeralizstion and
States' Right?, and no journal in Democrat
ic that is not the devoted champion of
States' Rights, the paramount principle ol
the Democratic faith.
The New York News needs no testimony
beyond its plain unalterable record to ub
stantiate its claim to being and having
been the most earnest, able and cotieWient
States' Rights Journal in the land. .We
have no excuses to invent for modification
of tentimenlk nor have we to pit ad "ex
pediency" iu palliation of inconsistency.
Our path has been otraigM forward. Our
column" are betote the people, not a line
in thetu that we would cancel nor senti
ment we would ' recall, not an assertion
that requires an explaua.ion, not a word
that we regret io have ur.ered. not a prin
ciple advocated that we have not stood by
and will stand by to tbe last. Such has
been our past record, no will be our future.
- We do not, however, ak the Democracy
to sustain us in our mission as a reward
for the service we have, done, but in con
sideration of the zood work that we pro-pps-s
to- do. The Nw Yoik News for. 1865
wilf oot merely imitate it predecessors, it
will excel them. It shall be not only the
liuesi exponent cf Demociatic principle,
but the best netcxpaper in the country.
Heretofore it ha had no superior as a ve
hicle of new, hereafter it shall have no
equal. In every department of journalim
we have arranged that the News shall dis
tance competition. It is the only'Demo
cratic newspaper in the metropolis that has
tbe -advantage of publishing a daily issue
with the full dispatches of the Associated
Press, and therefore its machinery for fur
nishing a complete record of evenis is
more perfect than that of any of i:s Demo
cratic cotemporaries. None have attempt
ed latterly, to compete with it in the publi
cation of Souther. intelligence, as our
system of exchange with Southern journals
Lafiies the nagacity and enterprise of our

will remark tbe extraordinary sue
ces that has attended our enterprise in
that direction. We are in daily receipt of
letters expressing the thanks of those who,
through the medium ol ihe "Personals" in
The News, have been enabled to receive
tidings from their friends and relatives in
the South, and the heart of many an exile
and wanderer has been gladdened through
that instrumentality by words of affection
and hope Irom those mourned for as dead
The New York News has become so
popular io ihe rural di-tricts that other x1e
tropolitan journals,' in publishing their
stereotyped boast of "the Targest circula
tion of any weekly journal7' are constrain
ed to make an exception in our favor It
is a significant circumstance that since the
Presidential election and consequent de
mise of War Democracy, the subscriptions
to this paper have been unusually numer
ous. The Agrictl.ura1 Department of The
New York News renders it an invaluable
companion and assistant to the farmer ;

TIIE SINGER SEWIXG MACHINES.
VUR Letter A Family Sewing Machine is
-'fa6t gaining a world-wide reputation. It
is beyond doubt the best and cheapest and
most beautiful ofjail Family Sewing Ma
chines yet offered to the public. No other
Family Sewing Machine has so many use
ful appliances for Hemming, Binding, Fell
ing, Tucking, Gathering, Guaging, Braiding
Embroidering, Cording, and so forth. No
other Family Sewing Machine has so much
capacity lor a area! variety of work. It will
sew all kinds of clo h, and with all kinds of
threao. Great and recent improvements
make our Family Sewing. Machine most
reliable and most durable, and most cer-"
tain in action at all rates of speed. It
makes the interlocked stitch, which is the
best stitch known. Any one. even of the
most ordinary capaciiy,can see, at a glance
how to use the letter A Family Sewing
Machine. Our Family Sewing Machines
ar fini-hed in chaste and exquisite style.
The Folding Case of the Family Ma
chine is a piece of cunning workmanship
of the must useful kind. It protects the ma
chine when not in use, and when about to
be operated may be opened as a spacious
and substantial table to sustain the work.
While some of the Cases, made out of the
choicest woods, are finished in the sim
plest a. id chastest manner possible, others
are adorned and einbelished iu the most
cosily and superb manner.
It is absolutely necessary to see ihe Fam
ily Muchni in operation, so as to judge ol
its great capacity and beauty.
It is last becoming as popular for family
sew ing as our Manufacturing machines are
lor manufacturing purposes.
. The Branch Offices are well supplied with
silk twist, thread, needles, oil, etc., of the
very he-t quality.
