• .. Chairman. ,
WU' propose to furnish THE HERALD
during tho present campaign, at the lo*
rate of Tarim cents, or for the remain
der of the year-4870-at FIFTY cents. We
do this in order that our friends may
hnve the adVantnge of, a live campaign
paper, at a very low price.. THE HEn
♦LD will contain full information con
cerning the political affairs throughout
the ,State, and will, for that alone, be
worth more than the subscription price.
All the pending political issues will be
discussed, and tio effort spared to make
it valuable as a. arty algal]. , The pres
ent campaign`will be interesting and im
portant, and the general circulation of a
well-conducted and Vigordus campaign
paper will•do much to givueuccess to our
party in this- .county. We ask our
friends to aid us in circulating Tnr, Hen-
ALD, confidently believing that they will
thus greatly ebotribute to the election of
our ticket.
Voluntier takes us to task for
saying that there was not a man of the
Democratic county tieket that Would not,
secure colored votes in any way possible,
if that — Were necessary to his • success.
Of-001 ' .11 , 1313411(111346-noway-Or—prOVITIg_or_
disproving - the intention of any party
with reference to any future action ex
cept by Awaiting. the result. It may be
that in this we were mistaken, but we
beg tcoremind our neighbors that the
Democrats of this county are not by any
'means imbued with suck ideas of pro-
priety as are set forth in their columns
on-this siibjeCt or any other, duccessj §
what their politicians propose,to achieve.
They are - after office, and they will have
it fairly if they can—unfairly if they
must. Of this _peculiarity of their co
, laborers our neighbors have had demon
strations that wore by no moans pleasant.
If the Politicians of the Democracy in
this county, in their race for nomination
-and election, had no greater sins than
inconsistency to.atooe for, they are more
- fortunate than we have heretofore slip
posed, or than the Volunteer has pre
viously_charged— It-wouldbe very-mean,-
very inconsistent, and very contemptible
for a Democratic politician to ask a col
ored man to vote for him, or to secure
his election or nomination by their
j'his is doubtless true. But it is.very
considerably worse, meaner, and more
despicable in every sense to secure a
nomination or election by bribery, coloni
zation, frauduleffilieting or counting, or
any of the kindred artifices with which
theeivorkiiig politicians of the party have - .
been familiar ever since we remember
FOR enterprise commend us to the
politicians of the Democratic party.
When votes are needed .they can-'get
them. Other parties may be able to Make
converts : from the opposite party, and
thus increase their strength. But the
Democracy scorn such common place
achievements. _They can get votes where
there are ,no voters. All that is necessary
is to get all election board devoted to the
interests of their party, and the thing
is accomplished. The number required'
for success in any given election is pro
duced to order without regards to means,
consequences or appearances.
The present 'census ip revealing some
of their rnest brilliant achievements in
this line. In the city. of Now York,
the tenth • election district of-the sixth
ward is found to contain just 870 inhabi
tants, which are made up of all classe's,
men, women and children, native .born,
and foreigner, naturalized and unn atura!--
ized. Now the vote cast-by this district,
in Iday last was just 934, or sixty-four.
more votes than- there were people of.
all kinds and conditions living there.
To show who set up this pretty little job it
is only necessary to say that 884 of these
votes Were given to Democratic candi
dates and .:70 to Republican candidates.
This is perhaps the best cheating that
the Democracy have been known to en
gage in lately, but then they bad a very
large majority to make up; and when
groat results are required we must not
too closctk scrutinize the means used to
secure them.
