We heartily endorse the sentiment of a
cotemporary, that now "the Presidential
canvass is fairly opened, it behooves Dem
ocrats to close up their ranks and sternly
discountenance persons or cliques who
may attempt to distract the party organi
zation. The vital object with all, who
olaim to be Democrats and patriots is to
defeat the present Administration. This
can only be done by the united action of
all who believe that Mr. Lincoln and his
advisers, are unable to properly conduct
'the war or restore the country to peace
and Union. All the foolish! misnnder
standing which has been rife among - Dem._
ocrata should not be tolerated' hereafter.
it' those who call themselves War Demo
crats are found denouncing those who
claim to be Peace
, Democtats, or vies versa,
it is pretty cleir that every person so act
ing is working directly in the interestirof
the Administration. This thing cannot be
tolerated. We have no time to waste in
quarrelling with each other. The opposi
tion which is forming against the present
Administration compriseslzot alone peaceT
Democrats or War Democrats, but it em
braces as well conservative men who have
hitherto acted with the Republican party
through mistaken motives —of sincere
radicals, who are disgusted with the imbe
cility of Lincoln, and also a great number
of discontented but patriotic citilena who
do not really belong to any particular
party in the country. All theaegiitierent
representatives of opinion Ire now ready
to act together for the overthrow of the
present Administration ; and any person
claiming to be a Democrat, whether of the
War or peace stripe, who spends his time
in denouncing his fellow Democrats, can
not have the welfare of his party or his
country at heart. Let us have no-more
of such people. We must restore the dis
cipline of the good old party, which never
permitted wrangling in its ranks, and
which subjected bolters and malcontents
to the sternest party ,discipline. Let us
have a union of all shades of the opposi
tion for the sake of the Union and _of
peace. The first thing to do is to pitch
overboard Lincoln and all his works."

_ The Richmond Sentinel is understood to
be the organ of the Confederate govern
ment. Hence its declarations upo4 mat
ters which pertain to the question of rela
tionship between the North and jyouth are
significant and 'important. For that rea
son we call attention to the utterances of
that paper through one of its recent issues.
It says : "We of the South oontiider inde
pendence as the first and great object of
the war, and that separation is essential to
independent* ; yet we shall be willing to
listen to what you have to say on the
• other side." The Sentinel says further :
"You may offer us something that will se
cure our equal righti within the Union. We
don't say it would satisfy us, but the sub
, ject is worthy of considerat*."
We have always held on the question of
closing this ruinous war, that if 'a proper
termination were proposed—one likely to
be agreed on—no matter where it came
from—no matter from what side, and no
matter through what channel—it would
be accepted. It has been asserted—always
vehemently by certain parties-that the
South would never consent to peace ex
cept on condition of independence, athis
asseveration is by no means borne out by
the declaration of the orkan of the South
ern Government, Whether it be true or
false ought to be ascertained without fur
ther delay..

-The World's Washington correspondent
Writes; "It is rumored and currently be
lieved here that lir. Lincoln has under
consideration the propriety of proposing
an armistice with the enemy, as a political
manceuvre. This action on his part is said
to be the result of the deliberations of the
Administration politicians who recently
met iii this city to .hold an inquest upon
the President's unfortunate "To whom it
may,, concern" document. .The tremen
dous revulsion against fir. Lincoln which
that ill.starred paper created all over the
country, make; the shoddy politicians feel
that some . step must be taken to delude
'the publio into the belief that, after all,
the l'resident would favor a peace. Hence
the rumor which obtains of his'intention
.to seek an armistice." We give the story
for what it is worth. - It is proper that we
should add, that, in our opinion, Lincoln
will never perform so sensible an act as to
propose an armistice, even for political
purposes ; ,or, if he does, it will be of such
a nature that he will be satisfied from the
start that the South will reject

months, between the Danes and the Ger

as will conduce to the interests ob peace.
What evil fate is it that ociddemna us

What. would it have availed them M have

I Cattle to negotiate, were already prescribed
I _and predetermined ? Why promise to
discuss with them "other substantial and
collateral painta." it absolute subniisaion
to the past. and future Prociamatious of
Mr. Lincoln were all he had to offer? His
telegram closed the door to discussion,
and he knew it must have that effect. It
watt addressed "to whom it may concern."

take it directly to himself—let him read
it. carefully and ponder over it. It has
."made history." Is it an acceptance, er
a cordial, courteous, 'manly welcome of
"any proposition which embraces the res
toration of peace" and "the integrity of
the whole Union," which would stop this
Woodshed and misery ? It is nothing of
the kind. In exact conformity with the
Administration programme since the date
of the Emancipation proolamatim4 it is an
indirect but positive refusal in adMnce to
entertain any proposition of Union with
_ out Abolition. Coupled with "peace" and
"Union," it, contains a condition which
Istr. Lincoln evidently regards as Superior
in importance to either, or _both, which
loverahadows both, and without which nei
ther Union nor peach will be accepted by
him. This condition is the "abandon
ment of slavery," and with it the consti
tutional right of self-government.. I. is
scarcely credible ; but the telegram is gen
uine. It came over the signature of "A.
Lincoln," and is vouched for by Horace
'Greeley. i .
The peace element, perhaps the Union
element, in the South was so strong, it
geom., as to necessitate the appointment
of these commissioners, or representatives,
or agents. The Union and peaoti element
is so strong in the North as to compel Mr.
Lincoln to qfeet a desire to treat with
them. Cunning in political chicanery on
a small scale, he always miserably fails
when a' great question of statesmans hip"
presents itself to his narrow vision. He
is incompetent to grasp it. Wiih singu
lar fatality, he always does the wrong
thing, at the wrong time, in I the worst
Why this persistent obstruction of every
.path leading to Union and pence ? The
old plea that "he could not treat with
rebels in arms" has been eiploded by his
.ewn acts. He could "treat wit rebels in
arms" for the burial of the ; why not
for the salvation of the living ? He in
sisted upon "treating with rebels in arms"
for enchange of negro prisoners ; why not
accept an offer to treat for the Prevention
of future captures of white soldiers; and
to depopulate the Libby prison? He will
treat with them if they abandon slavery ;
why not if they simply return to the
Union ? He will negotiate with "rebels in
arms" for any and every means of Carry - -
ing on the war; why not to establish peace
and Union ?
Mr. Voorhees revealed the secret when
he declared in Congress that Mr. Lincoln
dared not receive propositiond for Union
and peace, because he knows that . his party
cannot max the war, and, that Au power and
the rational= of the Union are incompatible.

Peace and the Republican Party. -
The recent Niagara correspondence and the
discussion to which it has given rise hare
gone far to demonstrate that the: time his sr.
rived when we may sheathe our swords and
close this bloody, this fratricidal war, on
terms loanable to both 'anions, and
Wag oaly to those who tight, aot - for Union,

ever so touched the heart of the great North

national affairs "the paelficatioil of our coun
try is settler so &Moult, nor i so distant as
seems to be psi/ally supposed."
The two great obstacles to peace are, and
alwaye horn been from the first, the dream of
indepeactosee on the past of the Routh, and
the equally baseless dream of Military eman
eipation and subjugation, on 7 the put, of the
North. Both 'originated isi mutual ignorance
sad contempt of the resources of etch, and
the tenacity with which each would maintain
its position.
Neither of these dreams its possible ; and
there is pretty good evidencel that hoth sec
tions are nearly cured of their delusions. If

shall prove an effectual remedy, as perhaps it
wee the only one for our national diseases, we

The editor had the kindness to publish to
you, in his laic issue, the "platform and prinei

and upon which "line we intend to fightle Out

is triumphant or the old ship founders. '
It is time the Democracy of Erie county,had
risen erect from their cringing posture. and
taken a bold stand in defence of those. inheri
ted and inalienable rights that it is our ditty
to cherish, proteotnnd hand down to posteri
ty intact and unsullied. , Let nit not falter 'in
this duty ; and though we may be in numeri
cal minority in our own immediate vicinity,
we must not forget that we are surrounded by
a "aloud of witnesses" who will bear record
of our valor And wlrth . in the coming great
battle for freedom and right. Let the Mends

out the county, so that' every district school
house will be a nucleus around which will .
gather, from time 'to time, breve hearts and
willing bands to speed onward the glorious
work of re-instating those tried and true
principles of Democratic reign.
If we are:not mistaken, we are the first to
enter the lists, having been organised for the
campaign about a month, and we can already
see that our efforts are telling upon the oppos
ing ranks. Deserters from the powers of•
darkness- are delly coming into•camp, *ad re
port consternation reigning- in the teats of
• braham. We have meetings every Saturday
evening,weU attended, not only by Democrats,
byl Republicans and ladies, all hanging
upon the words of our speakers with a candid
determination to ascertain if "these things be
so." On last Saturday evening we were ably
- addressed by our worthy townsman, IG. A.
Allen, Beg., followed by Benjamin Whitatal e
of the Oileever. Mr. Whitman's remarks have
enlisted in his behalf the warm approval of
many who have heretofore differed with 'him
in politics, and his patriotic appeal has; deeply
enshrined him in the memory of his friends in
this section of the eotfnty. We hope to bear
from him again. At the close of the meeting
a neat little appreciation of his services
to the Democracy was tendered hlia, la

Republican stump spnakerribow his way thro'
