and- intelligence seems to have_ fled from
our National Capital," at the same time
banding the-inen who stood bi 7 the Gov

fanatics." This was his position when
the rebellion broke out ; :and during 7 the
continuance of the war to suppress it, he
endeavored by all means in his power to
discourage the friends of the union cause.
He exaggerated the evils of the war; he
depreciated the National credit; he de

measures adopted to carry it - on to a suc

New York Platform.
The Democratic Platform demands,
"immediate restoration e all the states
to their rights in the Union, under the
constitution, and of . civil Government to
the-American people." It also arraigns
theltepublioan party for keeping up end
continuing a military despotism, as it is
styled by them, over ten sovereign - States
To prove bow holloW mid false is any
such declaration on their part we need
only 'refer - tolieq - Tietion of their Repro--
sentatives _a_few_days_sineel in, the -Con
green of the United States. -A "Bill was
introduced, which proposed to restore
seven or - the rebellious states to all their

subjects of reconstruction and military

The platform also demands, 4 a reduo

abolition of the Freedmen's Bureau!'
These very ulasures are now hi ing
adopted by a Republican Congress, and,
11r:ilex:their 'prating upon the subject is
nothing but the merest gammon.
With the exception of the denuncia
tion. of the Congressional plan of aeon

is the shee.est clap-trap to which any
party ever gave utterance.

and as such they might as w 11 accept it.
No wish or decree of .theirs .will ever re•

And us for the repudiation dogma, we
have no fears that the people will ever
for a moment think of endorsing it. Al
ready is the NRW York World endeavor

same before the campaign shall. have

What Seymour and Blair Wit Do-
SEYMOUR end • BLAIR are, to reiltre
and restore thii "lost cause." So said
high authority, the highest, - fadt,
among the National Democracy; an ex
rebel Governor, at ,a Democratic ratifica
tion meeting, last Saturday night, in
Richmond. It was a just and true thing
said in the most appropriate place. The
walls of Libby, vocal no longer with the
wail of starving prisoners, the embrazur
edWindows of Castle Thunder, tiolonger
haunted'with the skeleton faces-oe-tbli
loyal;iictirns of - rebel cruelty, the sandy
strand of Belle Island, no longer ringing
with the crack of the rebel rifle aimed-at
some poor Union soldier, already Dear per
ishing from despair, as he t -hovered near
thli dead-line; the halls of-the old Capitol
now no longer graced by rebel- oratory
and dignified' by-a rebel, President; the
streets and muares of Richmond made
historically, infamous in the annals 'of
treason against theliZlSt government on
earth, and of inhuman brutalities which
the laws of honorable wertaro denounce
as execrably vile—ghat was the spot for
the re inspired spirit of rebellion to uplift
its voice and 'glorify the advent of new
hopes . from the action of the National
Democracy SEYMOUR and BLAIR are
yet to redeem the lost cause—"all the'
Confederacy fought tbr"—so said Gov
VANcE, All the' shed blood of the loy.
al people, tire three hundred thousand
dead, the maimed still living, many of
whom often wish to die, those three
thousand millions of treasure spent, and
that assassinated Priisident. all these are
to go fur naught. SEYMOUR and BLAIR
are to give up all that the Union won,
in restoring to the Confederacy what it
lost Well, these things way have been
true enough.to say in Richmond, but
the time has hardly come yet to spy
them in Pennsylvania ,or Ohio, with
punity. What say you, Democratic
Ir ever MU asked for Bread and got
a kitone, it is the Soldiers and Sailors
who laid their petition before.the Demo.
°ratio Convention. The. .resented
coo , one of the niost-ilistinguished Gen.
orals of the war, and ,were given Sey
mour who opposed the war.' July 4,
1863, when Hancock was gallantly fight
ing at Gettysburg, Seymour was talking
treason in New York an stimulating
the riot in the interest of the rebels. For
these things Seyniour was chosen and
Hancock rejected. War Demoorats—

Look Out for Election Frauds
The Republican party, with an - lion
, "ea desire to prevent fraud and to se
' mire purity of suffrage, passed a registry
law at the last session of . the Legislature.
The Democraq, anxious to have all the
opppitunites possible' for fraudulent vot
ing, resisted the pm:sage...of. the Jaw, and,
failing there, have carried it lute the
Supreme• Court, where, on grounds that
seem little more than technicalities, it
has bean declared by the partisan major
ity of the Bench unconstitutional., If,
Gov. Geary does not call an extra session
of the Legislature, and have the law
amended in conformity with the opinion
of at least one of the Judges, we will be
left entirely at &he mercy - of these men
— Who huild their only hopes upon the very
fraud which this law aimed to prevent.
We must therefore exercise unwonted
vigilance ;.. We areforoWtirned and should
be forearmed. No lack .of vigilance on
our part will be es.ousable. This state
ae honest vote will give Grant and I
Colfax at least twenty-five thousand ma
jority. But Lo secure this desirable• re;
suit we must be vigilant and keep out
all the - fraudulent votes the Democracy I
may offer, and we are sure they will not
be a few.

all the promptings and instincts' of gen

lowly and oppressed, the mechanic and the
laborer against.tbe malignant rebel, and the

now almost extinct slave oligarchy. 'Hav

About 6 o'clock on Tuesday afternoon,
Mr. V. Bilift.BOWSß,, editor. .of this paper,
was walking quietly along toward-the post
office. Just us he had passed through the
court-house yard ho was stopped by kr.

can-be iinagined.by. those who - knowing the

About a week ago Bryeat Went into 'a Sad—

cowhide. He.then declared that ho intend- •

and that if lie resisted he• would kill him...
19011 the editor did resist,' and it is pretty
generally_conceded_that-Bryant• is -nearer—
dead -than Blerbower. The .""oply excuse
which Bryant offered for his conduct was
that he was unsitisfied'with a certain exprat.
nation which appeared in the Banner. - In
this his own actions contradict his excuse.
Just here wo may briefly state the case.
About•a month since the Cops Meta jollifi

those in charge of the paper gave an ac-

request Blt , rboirer wheltnew B:rytint's char
