"Mulatto l)emoi:racy'' i the neat ami
e'egant name coined by the straight-out
Democrats for the ''new departure" innova
tion. Ahem !
The ballot is everywhere protected by the
liepuLHcdns ; but it is debased by the De
mocracy to the worst uses, and denied to
thousand of good citizens.
It is said that France is actually and se
riously agitating armed intervention in favor
cf the Pope. It cannot 'be possible that
the government has a thought of anything
eo in.ane.
The noble army of Democrats is gettine
very much confused and mixed in Pennsyl
vania on the "new departure" movement.
Howevar, it is always difficult to execute
the order "about face" under fire.
Republicanism in the United States is
the evnibol of economy, public faiih, and
civilization. Its candidates aie pledged to
all these fundamental ideas, and no citizen
who deirjs t3 see them maintained will
vote against those candidates.
The Washington Reporter says: The
average sentiment c.f the Democracy in this
cunr.ty is the average sentiment of the parly
throughout the whole Commonwealth. Iloir
many member of the organization here
subscribe to the declaration of the ninth
resolution? We venture to assert not one
in a hundred.
The Pie says: No event of modern
times has so thrilled the popular heart as
the attack of the New York mob upon the
Protestant Irishmen last Wednesday. In
poaie respects it resembles the indignation
that followed the attack upon the old flag at
FortSumpter in April of 1SG1. It Is the
living and the bloody proof of the danger to
free institutions of the controlling party in
New York.
Democract loves the old amendments to
the Constitution as little as the new. The
f rst article if amendment to the Constitu
tion provides.: "Cmjrress shall make no

t Nonistuwn a few days since, gave orders
to the Democracy there to destroy nil their
old banners, tr3tiparei.cies. mottoes and de
vices heretofore u-ei. and new ones be pro- !
cured. It "h said an ff.T was made to the j
old "Wide Awake club for the use ot
theirs, but was rt fu-ed.
Oh. where tell me where
lias the - white man a party'' gone ?
The Piu.-lurg Onutle says : Allegheny
county promises well for Republicanism in xt
full. The ranks were never more thorough
ly united. Nothing exists to mar the har
mony of the party, and an old fiohio'icd
majority of ten thousand may be safely
counted upon. If our Republican friends
in other sections do their share of the work
and hold their own, we can safely count on
the State being all right lor at leiiat iweuty ,
thousand majority.
The effort of the World to ridicule the
Orangemen and their procession, is a sure
index of the thraldrom under which it is
weighed down by the mob o New York
that mob which recently made the city
wild with their orgies, and caused its strei Is
to run with the blood of freemen. It is the
acknowledged head and front of Democracy j
in the United States, anil it. bowed bo fore I

perstition of the class on whom it depends
for the votes to sustain its party.
The Democrats of the New Hampshire
Senate recently fil'e,'. a vacancy with a man
they supposed to be a Labor Reformer and
of cour.-e prepared to vote the Democratic
ticket straight. But it now turns out that
he is a Republican, and flatly refuse. to give
the Democrats any aid or comfort whatever.
Ihis brings the parties in the Senate six to
fix, and the redisricting of the State so as
to give the Democrats the next House can
not beeffectei. norean they help themselves
as heretofore by the ejection or sonic Re
publican member. They stand bound, and
if the new member proves true, Democratic
Uii-chief is checkmated.

stupendous arrogance of the men who now

Eiot in New York. . ,
Never, since the bloody riots of ISM, ha3
the city of New York been in such a perfect
blaxe of excitement, as On Wednesday, July
12th. For many days the proposed Orange
parade, and the counter "target excursion"
of the Irish Catholics, have been almost the
8 )Ie topics of conversation throughout the
city, tije opinion being unanimous that a
dreadful conflict was inevitable, unless the
) protection of the police and military author
ities were thrown around the Orangemen,
the nature and objects of whose Society
have been misspprelien'U'd in many quar
ters. It has bt-eri custoinarr for the various
lodges ,of tbe Order to hold tin annual par
ale onibo 12th of July, the anniversary of
tbe bsiile of the Boyr.e. Last year, during
the ceieLration, it will be remembered, a
brulai attack was made upon timie members
of the Order, their wives at d children, by a
number of workmen employed on the
Boulevard, and receiving pay from the city.
Mayor llali had issued a proclamation
forbidding the procession, but Gov. Huff
man being appealed to issued a proclama
tion setting forth that all oititixetis in this
country had the right peaceably tJ assemble,
and that he would give the necessary pro
tection to the Orangemen if they were in
terfered with.
Early in the morning of the twelfth the
Orangemen gathered around their headquar
ters, corner ot Twenty-ninth street and
Eighth uTt'!iue,from which point the proves
sion was to start, to the numbe? of about
two hundred, with a few women. Nearly
ull the tucti were armed with revolvers and
swords. Foni this time till ten o'clock the
police were bustling about and assembled
under their captains to the number of 1,500
and were tent in detachments to the locali
ties where trouble was most likely to occar.
At 11:15 A. M., the riot commenced. The
mob had collected 3.1)00 strong at Prince
street with an officer at their head brandish
ing a "word. lie swore to his mnn that they
should fellow him and he would get them
arms. The colonel of the COlli ltegiment
had bin men under arms although not au
thorized by (Jen. Shaler. At noon the 7th
Regiment with fixed buyouts, under Gen.
Shaler, attacked and dispersed 140 Third
street rioters without loss:
The C'Jth Regiment's armory with a large
number of arms was attacked and captured
by rioteis. Tbe scldiers were ordered to
tire on the mob several bodies of which
were perambulating the streets.
At Twenty-sixth street the 9th Regiment
charged the mob with Osed bayonets. Seve
ral persons were killed and wounded, among
them one woman. Colonel Fi.-k was shot
through the ankle.
Between Twenty fifth and Twenty-sixth
streets the mob fired three shots at the pro
cession. The military returned the fire,
killing eight and wounding thirteen. Two
bjys and a lady were shot. Sixteen citizens
aud three so'Jieis were killed. Coming
down the avenue at the corner of Twenty
thirl street., the fcUth Regiment lired uoon
the mob, ki'd ng and wounding twelve. One
policeman was s.het deal. The number of
killed and wounded is stated at S:J killed
and 0! wounded.
This brief account aiTorJ.; but a very faint
idea of the real state of affairs ami extent
of tbe riot. Want of room compels us to
omit details, but there is no question as to
die doctrines and teachings which produced
the bioud-dicd ami death in New York, on
Wednesday. J:: y lth, 1S71. These doc
trines are the Uocirhies of modern Democ
racy ; these teachings are the teachings of
the wretched men elected to ofiice by Dem
ocratic votes aud Democratic fsauds. Like
the rebel'ioti, tl ey Were the seed from which
have erown the fearful crops of proscription
an I murder in the South, and the intoler
ance, bigotry, and massacre in the North.
We are g'a 1 to knnv that Gor. Hoffman's
prompt action cheeked the rioters and saved
the lives of many innocent persons. If
such lawlessness was left unchecked, who
can foretell the re u't? Who can gny, but
that the same men who seek by violence to
control the destinies of New York city, will
not also try to control the destinies of this
country by having the National Government
subjected to their control by the same des
perate means? With the past and present
experience before him, who will dare to
even iumate that the only safety to our
free institutions rests in the people and the
Republican party? Let all remember this.

Letter from Florence, Kansas.
Florence, Ks., July 9th, 1871.
Dear Jocknal: According to request,
I will endeavor to give a few words concern
ing Kansas, for the edification of the read
ers of the Journal. I have just returned
from a trip down the Walnut Valley, to the
southern line of the State, having traveled
about two hundred miles, and can therefore
etve a pretty correct statement concerning
crops, etc. '
This town of Florence, now about three
mouths old, has about 50J to COO iuhabi
taots, is situated at the confluence of Cot
tonwood River and Doyle Creek, on the.
Atchison, Topeka fc Santa Fe Railroad, (J7
miles south west of Topeka, in Marion
county, which is considered one of the best
counties, in the State for stock raisins, and
farming comb ned. The valleys are very
fertile, producing as high as 52 bushels of
wheat to the acre, several parties this year
having harvested 44 bushel per acre, and
bad bread baked of flour from new wheat
on the forrteenth dm of June.. Corn this
year is doing very well; the crop will aver
age from 40 to 75 bushels per acre on sod
ground. Rye and oats also yield abund
antly. In regard to the drouth, many erroneous
impressions exist. According to the state
ments of old residents, of 14 and 15 years'
experience, there have been but two or three
very dry summers, and the rest were very
good years for crops. The character of
the soil is such that if there should be but
little rain, it retains its moisture fcr a veiy
longtime, and crops thrive splendidly- This
year, according to my own experience, we
have had rather too much rain. As to the
climate, it is useless to speak, for it is ac
knowled by all to be the most equable of
any portion of our country. During the
summer months the sun shines very fervent
ly, in fact, wyuld be almost unbearable,
were it not tor t lie cool and refresfung
breeze that is almost continually blowing.
In the winter months, cattle are herded aud
grazed without shelter, many persons put
ting up uj hay, while others cure from one
fourth to one-half ton per head, no grain of
any kind being used.
Ot what are known as the Osage lands,
which lie to tbe sooth of us, vast improve
ments have been made. These lands were
brought into market, (subject to pre-emption
in tracts not exceeding one hundred
aud sixty acres, at one dollar and a quarter
per acre to actual settlers only) about two
years since, but in traveling over this vast
tract one would imagine it to be an old-settled
country. For a distance of sixty miles
you will find farms being made on every
hand ; you can always be in sight of a set
tlement, aud in some localities, 3'ou can sec
from sixty to one hundred farm houses dot
ted over the prairie. Many have their
farms tenced, and many others are fencing,
while some sow their ssed without any pro
tection from stock, save that afforded by
herding. Quite a number of towns
have sprung up, which contain from 100 to
H00 inhabitants, and where settlers can buy
goods as cheap as in the Eastern States.
The people are from every State in the
l7iiion, and are perfect representatives of
American life and energy ; they are intelli
gent, ind'.Mtriotn, and eudowed with any
quantity of "push," and are determined
that with the superior advantages Kansas
has, it shall not be many years before she
stands, not otiTy as one of the first, but the
very first State in the Union, for agricultur
al purposes.
Many broad acres are yet awaiting claim
ants, ani no-.v is the time for all who are de
sirous of changing locations, to come to
Kansas, and take your choice of farms.
Another year's immigration like the pres
ent, will render it difficult to find choice
farms at the disposal of Uncle Sam.
Lest I become tedious, I will reserve farth
er remarks for a future communication,
should this one hi deemed worthy of inser
tion ia the coluuius of the Journal.

History of the War in Europe. The
recent war between Germany and France
aroused so much intersst on tire part of our
people, that it was generally supposed at
tbe time, that the earliest and best history
of that great struggle, would be from the
pen of an American author. The National
Publishing Co., of Philadelphia, have just
issued a very complete and valuable history,
bearing the above title. It is from the pen
of Mr. James D. McCabe, Jr., and is a
handsomely bound volume of 800 octavo
pages, illustrated with 150 maps, portraits,
battle scenes, views of prominent localities,
etc. It is written in a bold, vigorous style,
and will, unquestionably, take rank as the
Standard history of the struggle by an Am
erican" writer. Sir. McCabe, has evidently
etuJied his sul jeet deeply, for he writes as
an historian, and not as a politician, as one
who places facts on Tecorl for the verdict of
future ages, and not as one ho seeks to
win the favor of cither the Germans or the
French of to-day. The great charm of tbe
work is its impartiality, its absolute fidelity
to truth. His book facinates while it in
struets, for it tells in graphic and eloquent
language, the most wonderful st-jiy o? mod
ern times, lie traces the causes oi tne war
from their origin down to the beginning of
hostilities ; set forth the diplomatic history
of the prelude to the war, with clearness ;
and states forcibly, and in detail the causes
of the triumph of Germany and the failure
of France. The low price at which the
bonk is issued, brings it within the reach of
all, and no one wishing to keep abreast of
the times should fail to read it. It is pub
lished in both English and Gcrmsn, sold by
subscription only, and agents are wanted in
every county.

Hair enewer.
Every year increases the popularity of this val
uable Hair Preparation; which is due to merit
alone. We cau assure our old patrons that it is
kept fully up to its high standard ; and it is the
only reliable and perfected preparation for re
storing GRAY OR FADED HAIR to its youthful
color, making it soft, lustrous and silken. The
scalp, by its use. becomes white and clean. It
removes all eruptions and dandruff, and. by its
tonic properties, prevents the hair from falling
out, as it stimulates aud nourishes tbe hair
glands By its use. the hair grows thicker and
stronger. In baldness, it restores tbe capillary
glands to their cormal vigor, and will create a
new growth, except in extreme old age. It is
tbe most economical Hair Dressing ever used, as
it requires fewer applications, and gives the bair
a splendid glossy appearance A. A Hayes. M.
D., State Assayer of Massachusetts, says, "The
constituents are pure, and carefully selected for
excellent quality ; and I consider it the Bssr
Preparation lor its intended purposes."'
Sold ly all Druggist! aud Dealers in Medicine.
Price One Dollar.
As our Rcnewer in many cages requires too long
a time, and tco much care, to restore gray or fa
ded whiskers, we have prepared this dye, in on
preparation.; which will quickly and effectually
accomplish this result It is easily applied, and
produces a color which will neither rub nor wash
off. Sold by all Druggists. Price Fifty Cents.
