THE ALL4MPORTANT DUTY of EVERY
A few months more and the Presidential
campaign will open in all its vigor, with can
didates in the field representing the distinct
ive issues -of each political organliation, and
committed plainly and unequivocally to their
On both sides active preparations are be
ing made for the struggle, and it will . un
doubtedly be one of the most fiercely con
tested in the history of the nation. Every
indication of the times points to the most
stubborn and unscrupulous resistance on the
part of the Radicals against the efforts of the
people to wrest from them'the lawless power
which. they have seized to uphold their base
The Democratic party begins the campaign
under this most auspicious circumstances,
with,a Confidence in success an enthusiasm
for the cause, and a vigorous self reliance
that has not been experienced in many years.
The late elections show conclusively that a
vast majority of the nation are ready to es
pouse our standard if we only prove faithfhl
to our creed, and continue to stand firmly by
the interests of the country. e '
But to make victory certain something
more is necessary than mere dependence up
on the truth of oar principles. In the Bush
of self-confidince, we hie apt to forget what
a vigilant enemy we have to overcome, and
what desperate measures he is apt t o resort to
to attain his ends. l'olitical battlesl like those
of a more bloody nature, depend for their re
sults more on the skill,conrage, determination
and energyof the con testin gfoes thrift upon the
sacredness of their cause, or the convictions of
the participate. The Democracy of America
have always stood fprth a.s.devotedly attached
to the Union, the Constitution and the wel
fare of the country as they do to-day, yet
for seven years they have been divested of
power, and it is only when the people are
aroused from their delusion by the imperilled
condition of the public interests, that they
have again returned to tis that confidence
which it would have been well if they had
never parted with.
The all-important necessity of the day, Am
the part of our political - friends is—work!
WORK 4 . ! WORK!!
We must be thoroughly organized and pre
pared for the campaign. Every man must
consider that he owes it personal duty in the
matter, as Indeed 'he does, for there is no one
so humble, but he is in some way more or less
concerned in the issues at Stake. All the
districts must be canvassed, so that we may
know where It will be most advantageous to
mploy our energies. The young' men must
be encouraged to lend a helping hand. Those
who have been led °stray must be brought
back to the fold, and Democratic arguments
placed in their reach, that they may know
the distinctly° questions which divide par
ties, and no longer be misled by the wiles and
falsehoods of the Opposition.
What we have said before we now miter-,
ate, and intend reiterating until we have
waked the Democracy up to a full conscious
ness of its truth, that the most effective
weapon towards success Is the wide diarribu:
don of sound and straightforward localnews
One good jimxrnal in a fu nlly.N.W..do more
towards moulding its political convictions
than all other influences, and fifty copies cir
culated in any tocality for six months will
accomplish more efficient service than a doz
en costly mass meetings. -. •
The Democratic party has never displayed
that zeal in supporting its press that it need
ed, and to that cause, as much •as anything
else, may be attributed Its misfortunes during
the last ten years. In all sections of the
country--even in the midst of the strongest
Democratic localities—the Radical press is
more liberally sustained than ours, and in
Many places the contrast is so great as al
most to amount to a disgrace.
The time, his come for these things to be
changed, and for the Democratic party to
enter upon a new method of warfare. Our
papers ought to be spread broadcast over the
land, and take the place of those which are
now defiling the minds of the young and
filling.them with wrong ideas of Republican
liberty. Our public men should avail them
selves of every opportunity that offers to im
press the importance of these views on the
attention of the masses. Our local leaders
should make a point of devoting whatever
spare time they can towards strengthening
their county organs by procuring their friends ,
and neighbors' patronage. .
The low price of TWO DOLLARS per
year at which the Observer, is now offered,
if paid in advance, ought to ensure' the doub

offer to take sir month aubscriptioratat DNB

continuing the-paper at the same rate for the
balance of the year if desired.
Now is the time to begin the work, before
the spring operations set in, and,while voters
have time to read, and reflect over the facts
presented to them. Let it not be delayed
under the impression that the matter can be,
as well attended to by-and-by. More ad

next two months than can be performed dur

six months' subscription commencing within
the neit two months, will continue until
near the close of the campaign; and havean
immense influence over the mind of the vo
ter who peruses the paper.
We earnestly urge this important • matter
upon our *lends as by all odds the most re

Let this he the grand preparatory work of
the campaign, and be assured that whenever
other means are necessary there will be found
an abundance of ready helpers for every part

We intend that, be the result of the con

Such is a condensed view of the military
career of this renowned soldier, embracing
twentY ' five years of service, more than
twenty battles and three wars ; a career as
rare as it is splendid ; unstained by injustice,
cruelty or crime ; bright with courage, ge
nius, integrity and patriotism; one of the
noblest records in Military history, in this or
any other age.
Let us now turn to the ° administration of

11. The General Commanding is gratified
to learn that peace and quiet reign in - this
Department. It will be his purpose to pre
serve this condition of things. As a means
to this great end he regards the maintenance
of the civil authorities in the faithful elrecu
tion of the laws, as the most efficient, under
In war it indispensable to repel force by
force, and overthrow and destroy opposition
to lawful authority. But when insurrection
ary force has been overthrown, and pesPo
established, and the civil authorities are re
ady and willing to perform their duties, the
military power should cease to lead, and the
civil administration resume its natural and
rightful dominion. Solemnly impressed with
these views, the General announces that the
great principles of American liberty still are
the Lawful inheritance of this neople, find ever
should be. The right of trial by jury, the
Habeas Corpus, the liberty of the press, the
freedom of speech and the natural rights of
persons and the rights of property must be
preserved. . •
Free institutions, while they 'are essential
to the prosperity and happiness of the people,
always furnish the strongest inducements to
peace and order. Crimes and offences com
mitted in this District must be referred to the
consideration and judgment of- the regular
civil tribunals, and those tribunals will be
supported is their lawful jurisdiction.
Should there be violations of existing laws
which are not inquired into by the civil magi
strates, or should failures in the administra
tion of justice by the 'courts be complained
of, the cases will be reported to these Head
quarters, when such orders will be made as
may be deemed necessary.
While the General thus indicates' his pur
pose to respect the liberties of the people, he
wishes all to understand that armed insurrec
tions or forcible resistance to the law will be
instantly suppressed by arms.
By Command of Major General W. S.
W. G. MITCHELL,
Bvt. Lieut. Col., Act'g Ass't Adj't Gen'l.
-The Official acts of Gen. Hancock 'sus
tained all the principles of civil liberty so
clearly and strongly announced in his order.
The military was held subordinate to the
civil power ; the rights and the liberties of
all were respected and protected ; the au
thority of the civil Courts was defended
the great writ of right, the safeguard of lib
erty, the writ of Habeas Corpus, was sacred
ly respected ; the petty tyranny of subordi
nate officers • was sternly repressed ; the
trial by jury was re-established; the re
building of the levees of the Mississippi, a
work of iminensb
_importance, was begun;
the utmost encouragement was given to the
business community in New Orleans; the
mart of the South and South-West by sus
taining at par the four millions of dollars of
currency issued by that city, a deprecia
tion in which would have been most disas
trous to all ch‘s , 4>s of thepeople, but especi
ally to the poor and hard working. His
headquarters, where the Union flag always
floated, was daily thronged with a mixed
multitude, whose cases were regularly and
promptly decided. The poor were not
neglected, the weak were not oppressed ; the
rich dared not defy the laws. Whoever has
read the official orders and letters of General
Hancock must be struck with the strong
common sense, and strict justice which mark
them, and all who know the skill, rapidity,
and equity with which the many intricate
and conflicting claims were adjestel. by hint
will accord to him a knowledge of Constitu
tional law,p familiarity with important
fairs, an administrative ability, and an integ
rity worthy of the highest praise. Such was
the manner in which he governed, that
New Orleans, with a- population of 240,000,
was quiet, safe, healthy and prosperous ; and
so perfect was the confidence of- this vast
body of people in the good intentions, the
honor,. and the ability of Gen. Hancock ;
such their dread of a rapacious successor to
him that when a strong rumor of his remo
val was circulated, the scrip of New Or
leans, 'hitherto at par, sunk to twenty , per
cent. discount in one day I universal gloom
and distrust prevailed, business was com
pletely paralyzed! a most striking and
suggestive fact! But last, best and no
blest of allwas the kind, courteous, and mag
nanimous spirit, shown by this illustrious sol
dier tcr_lhe brave, generous,
but mis , ruided
and unfortunate people of the South. 'While
he maintained with dignity the character of
an officer of the Union, and with lust pride
upheld the insignia of the Republic; the
National • ensign always displayed at his
headquarters and his home ; all officers on
duty required to be in uniform; there was
no attempt at military coercion, no arrogaace
of the sword, no law of the bayonet—Peace
and good Will were studiously cultivated
With all. Travel where you will through
the South; the name of Hancock is firmly as
sociated with fidelity to the Union and laws;
with kindness' and humanity to a fallen foe ;
with high toned honor and perfect truth. A
reputation infinitely more precious than mil
itary renown. His brief but striking adminl,
istration has shown him to possess states
manlike-ability of the highest order. He
will gO down toposterity as the vindicator
of Constitutional Liberty: His order - on as
suming command of the sth Military Dis
trict sounds like a voice from the august as- ,
sembly over which John Hancock presided ;
it is a simple yet majestic plea for liberty
worthy of the highest and grandest era of
the Republic; it has gone to thef.hearts of
a great people; it is read at their firesides ;
it is treasured by them among the sacred
memories of our happier National days, and
it will never be forgotten !
But all the splendor of military and civic
glory will not win the love of mankind, how
ever it may challenge their admiration—why
is it then that the soldiers who have served
with Hancock love him with the devotion of
the Legionaries to Cmsar, or the Old
Guard to Napoleon ? It is because. he bored
his ahldieia.. They were indeed his brothers
in. arms- ho shared their fatigues and dan
gers, always fought at their head, always
tenderly cared for. his sick and wounded,
and never uselessly sacrificed one life ! If he
had no other recommendation to the Ameri
can people than this one fact it ought to
crown him with their highest honors, We
never Aimlessly sacrificed .one life." The
Soldiers knew this—theirfathenstitelrmoth
theirsistets,their brothers, their wives,
theirehildrell know that Hancock Was the
friend of hialfoldiersi and that ho is infinitely
dear to Atem. There are- 104,000 , Urilen
soldierit in the' North; they hold the balance of
pollticelTOlfetltiad - they inciw it, and they .

' And if he comes before theta on the' plat

SIMPLE MODE OP COMPETING INTEREST.-
Multiply any given number of dollars by the

the right hand fgure* and divide by six, the
result is the true interest of such sum for ac

post it up. As there is no such thing as frac

Ax observing man, whO was recently tra

near a certain town the train passed through

that sounded for all the world like a con

A WRITER in the London "Chronicle" pre
sents some startling statistics of the past and
present population of Ireland. Twenty-one
years ago there were reckoned eight and a
quarter millions people; sixty-one years.ago,
5,574,105; this pear, only 5,557,196. In 1861
there were 5,788,415, and every year since
there has been a diminution, in spite of in
crease by births. But though 1867 is nearly
equal to 1801, the proportion of the sexes in
the two years is far from the same.' Then,
there was an excess of 50,469 women ; now,
of 184,756. Immigration has carried off the
men. In spite of an enormous decrease of.
population from 1851 to 1861, the number of
deaf mutes increased by 473, or about 8 per
cent.; the blind by 1,002, about 19 per cent. ;
the lame and decrepit by 225,
more than 5
per cent ; the lunatic and idiotic by 4,118 on
a former total of 9,780! To France alone,
after the scourging conscriptions of Napoleon,
could Ireland' be compared with any hope of
finding a parallel for facts so lamentable.
A Crareao paper says: "We took a new
reporter on trial yesterday. Ho went out to
hunt items, and oiler being away all day, re
turned with the following, which he said was
the best he could do: Yesterday we saw a
sight that froze our muscles with horror. A
hackman, driving down Clark street at a rapid
pace, came very near running over a nurse
and two children. There would have been
one of the most heart-rending catastrophles
ever recorded, had not the nurse, with wonder
ful forethought, left the children at home be
fore she went out, and providentially stepped
into a drugstore just before the hack passed.
Then, too, the hackman just before. reaching
the crossing, thought of something -that he
had forgotten, and turning about drove in the
opposite direction. Had It not been for this
wonderful concurrence of favoring circum
stances, a doting father, a loving mother,
and affectionate brothers and sisters, would
have been plunged into the deepest woe and
most unutterable funeral expenses,' The new
reporter will be retained."

infant son to the peaks of a mountain-range
in Kwelcnoo, to a spot quite inaccessible to
little footed Chinese women. He trained the
