Harper'.s ;Weekly,' which was cue of
the stongest defenders of Democracy be-
fore the Rebellion, speaks thus , harshly
but truirTully of the corrupt thing. It
says, "The national prestige of the De
-1 moeratie name is gone. The narde of
Democracy is indissolubly associated with
treason, rebellion, and civil war. , Under
Democratic ascendancy the conspiracy
was conceived and matured. Under a
Democratic Administration it ripened.
By Democratic chiefs it was directed.
'By Democratic politicians it was defended
and excused. By a Democratic Conven
tion it was declared triumphant. ,
Democratic organs and orators, as far as
they dare; the theories from which the
Rebellion) sprung are still justified. The'
Democratic party has forced its best met:

name to ;thy basest purpose. At some.

Mystery still hangs about the solution
lot that famous probleml which relates to
jMonroe,! ! Maximilian, and Mexico. It is
an entire novelty for secrecy to invest,
for many any weeks, any - Government
'measure. So icon' as au official does any
thing. be puts it in the newspapers, un
!less the obliging gentry of the press do
so for him. Even during the war, for a
long time; what information the enemy
!could not get through his spies he col
lected from the files of New York papers.

the Vrench Eniperor has forcibly pointed

of "masterly inactivity' employed to de-,

perhaps that is the proper epithet to ap

Hancock - , in his late speech, said that all;
the Volunteer forces were soon to be dis-j
charged, and that, if any one should urge
there were grievances yet to redress, he
would answer that "these grievances can I
be - settled by time alone.' He declared
his belief that Napoleon would evacuate
Mexico, "if allowed time to do so with I
honor.' And, though he believes war will
result from a failure of the. Emperor to
evacuate, yet the General says, it is now
for is to cultivate "the 311.4 of peace,and
bind up the wounds made by - the late
Rebellion. We may defgr the day of
retribution until we are strong again,

Upon our friends in the various dis

matter of importance : that, if their own
district is disorganized, apathetic, or in.
different in its preparitions for the cam
paign ; if they find themselves not pre
pared or not able to do as well this fall
as formerly, 'they must not expect the
balance of the county to compensate their
want of energy and faithfulness. Gen
erally speaking, you can judge of the
condition of things elsewhere by the sit
nation at home. If your own district is
well organized, and thoroughly awake to
the issues involved ; if you know of sev
eral changes in it favorable to the cause,
or of conversions, or reasons for an in
crease of vote, you may. safely presume
that these are general indications of pop
ular sentiment, and not confined to a sin
gle section. But if you hear that a
neighboring district will do well; do not,
upon any account. rely upon it to do your
work. Emulate its gallantry, and per.
form achievements as great or greater.
Let us urge it upon you, fellow-citizens,
that you look at home, in your districts,
and prepare to do better this fall than
SOLDILRS AS DEMOCRATIC CANDI
DATES.--If the Democratic party__ was
sincere in its hostility to the war during
its progress, then the effect of their nom
inating Union soldiers for office, now that
it is over; must be to compel Democratic
voters to support candidates whom they
bate, and on the other hand to force their
candidates to ask for the votes of men
whom they must despise, if they have not
been hypocrites themselves. The degra
dation of both is thus complete.
Maj. Gen. Couch has been nominated
by the Copperheads of Massachusetts as
a candidate for Governor. If Couch runs
as well in MassachuSetts as he did in the
Cumberland Valley, he will reflect as
much credit on treason sympathy in that
State as he did 'disgrace on loyal valor in
this Commonwealth. It is maintained
that the chief merit of Couch, in the eyes
of his eastern Copperhead supporters, will
be the fact thathe abandoned Chambers
burg to the fire tind fury of the rebels.
TERRIBLE.—The Ohio Statesman,the
organ of the Detnocrats of that State,
says that "a vote for Gen. Cox, (the Re
publican candidate for Governor,) will be
a vote in favor of taking the Declaration
of Independence for our political guide."
No greater calamity—in Democratic eyes
—could happen to the country, than tak
ing the Declaration of Independence for
our political guide.

A "healtby7 loyalist named Pendleton
has been reakig a speech in Virginia.
He was once lan Old Line Whig. He
had been oppoScd to Secession. Now he
wants to go too Congress. In his speech
occurs tins pleasant and pathetic passage :
"Four YanlT Generals--Wadsworth,
Morrow, Robinson and Rice—camped on
my place for four months, Winter before
last ; and, aljthough I don't exactly be
lieve in provider:ices ; the fact that
three of them fell dead at the Wilderness,
the day after they !crossed the Rapidan,
looked like aspe.cial dispensation in my
