even partially realized, the fact will be

anxieties of the past year, and as an en

The Democratic assertion that Schuy
ler Colfax once declared, in a political
svech, that "he had registered a 801-
etnn oath never to vote- •for a foreign
horn man for any office, and to remove
all foreigners aliens aid Roman Cath
olics from office, whenever he might
possesS the power so," is the bas
est of slanders,- made •up out of the
whole cloth. Mr. Colfax ,never made
such ad -.!claration, nor did he ever "reg
ister" such an oath. More than this,
he has seven times been elected to Con
gress, the last-time only two years since,
in a,distriet containing more foreigners
than any other in Indiana, one of its
counties (Lake) having a majority of
.fore;gn , born voters, and he has not only
always run ahead of his ticket, but he
has. converted . that particular county
front Democracy in . the banner Repub
lican county bf his district. in Clay
r ph iship, in his own county of St. Jo-
, e,_wherathere is a majority of Cath
olic VOers, lie has often carried it when
the'r . of his ticket was lost by a two
third vote. Time and again, he has
sustained Lange, Young, Mansfield and
others, foreign-born, for State offices.
These facts show how, sOpid and mal
ignant is the falsehood, Ve Melt we have
quoked above from the Democratic jour
nal giving it currency Yesterday morn
ing.—Doylestottm intell,encer.,
One of the Most learned of the South
Carolina statesmen was ,a foundling,
and was taken to the hot of an emi
nent lawyer while an inf nt, reared and
educated by him, and finally taken in-'
to his office. Ho fell in love with his
patron's daughter, who reciprocated his
attachment. His father protested, and
the lovers arranged for an elopement,
which was exposed and frustrated by a
servant._ The young man was:asked to
an interview with the young lady's fa
ther, who said that "he loved and
honored him beyond utterance, but you
cannot marry my daughter, for the rea
son that she is_youraister 2"
THE DIFFERENCE.—A Lebanon coun
ty Republican is a defaulter to the
amount of $17,000, and Republicans as
well as Democrats condemn him. A
Lebanon county Democrat is a defaul
ter to the amount of $150,000, and not a
Democrat says a word against the crime
or the criminal, but, on the contrary,
the Democratic organ of Lebanon coun
ty comes to •.his defence and declares
that he has dOne nothing to lessen him
in the esteem of the Democracy. What
is the rational explanation of this diff
erent treatment of a Republican and a
Democrat ? -We can explain -it in - no
oilier Way than that a Republican office
holder IS expected . to be' - more honest
than a democratic one. When a Dem
ocrat becomes a defaulter, he is after
what John C. Calhoun declared to be
the strength of the party=-PixtmEn.—

The nomination of Horatio Seymour
by the' Tammany . Hall Convention,.
tifoUgh unexpected to outsiders, is now
seen to hirve• been ' premeditated: 'lt
might as MT, I ' have been on the third
ballot as on the 22d. The whole: Altair

shiver is if they had just taken a show-
erbath of ice-,water. As,in the ease •of ,
the "Charge . rifthesix:llundred," some-'
body has blundered. Ilutthe cruelest
thing of all iilhechainirx oficyntour
to that clay-cold, corpsc—Frfink
The whole reads like 'a cheap
Thai adoption of the two-thirds rule
in the New York ConVention clearly
enough shows that the Democratic par
ty is still influenced by the domineer
ing spirit of SlaVery. It was establish
ed by -the Slaveholders
,so the
South night always hold the balance
of pow ri in the Conventions. jlt vas
this rule which enabled them to' defeat
the nomination and election of Douglas
in full Convention in 1860: Slavery is
the normal condition of that party.
The third plank in the Tamuram
Hall platform menus repudiation, ‘r it
means nothing. , ' If the bonds of the
United States be paid in greenbacks,
as it proposes, how are the ..greenbacks
to be redbemed ? If in gold, why not
redeem the, bl;inde in geld? • if net to
bo redeemed at all, Wen why take such
a roundabout course 'to repudiation ?
Why not reiMdiate the I .!.)6zitis' at, once?
Th© 'De - Moeracy • did - . tt, mighty good
thing in appointing__Wndesiamutoh_mi
the Oommittee to draft resolutions. He
stands to-day just where he stood eight
years ago, when South Carol' twiseceded
He was the apostle of •ruin then, and is
Just the man to construct platforms for
the Democracy to-day: Perceiving that
the Northern wing of, the party will
not aid the rebels with bullets, he takes
the last and Only chance of their aid
with `ballots.
This is a prolific age, and in nothing
more iirolific than in demagogues, Chief
amor whom to-day stands
. Horatio
Seymour. Mr. Seymour is a man of
business integrity and fair life, , but a
most unscrupulous politician. He IS'
prominent in that school of politicians
which takes for its Motto "ad captan
darn vulgus,"' and "all's' fair in pol
itics." Need we say thatuoUlan who
subscribes to the latter doctrine can
long remain a fair Man in - any respect?
Is it not a fact that any degree of licen
tiousness taints the
,entire moral nature
of a man ? How, long can a man pre
meditate misrepresentation as part of
his political tactics and not employ it
in other relations of life? Not long. A
man may be honestly deceived; but
Horatio Seymour though by no means
an intelligent politician, is not so ignor
ant as he is knavish.
In reading his speech before the
New York Convention we find it diffi
cult to respect the man, so disgusted are
we with the demagogue. ,No 'question
upon which the campaign' is to he made
is fairly stated and squarely - met. , We
intend this declaration to be sweeping
and without exception. Horatio Sey
mour knows, . and every intelligent
man in both parties knowS„tlitit the re 1
hellion was consummated during. the
Administration 'of . James Buchanan
that the Democratic . party held the
curse and the Sword for nearly ,a hun
dred days after the first shot was fired
upon the flag; and 'nobody doubts
that had there been n man, and not a
puppet, in the „White House on the
first of January, 1861, the Slaveholders'
Rebellion might have been put down
at a cost of less than $lOO,OO- Know
ing these things, by what tight does
oratio Seymour, copying the cheap
,alderdash'ef village gossips .and pot-;
' ouse politicians, charge upon the 'Re-_
üblican party the treasure eXpende4l
i subjugating the Southern wing of
the Democratic party? If A wrong
fully undertakes to disposses4 B of his
property, and
,B' defends at a cost of
half his farm has A a shadow of right
to abuse B for , putting a proportion of
the costs' upon the . prosecutor? Or
have the heirs of A the right to com
plain of the costs which accrued from
the wrong practiced by their legator?
Mr. Seymour knoWs that the extra
ordinary expenditures of the wqr could
not have been met with gold ; for the
entire coin of the .worlii barely covers
one-tenth of the stiqi of the indebted
ness of all nations. vlt would, were it
possible for us tocommaud it, barely re- '
deem • our own Indebtedness. , What
was to be done then i What, but to put
the real property .of _ the, flattop. in

iantPeriodS-With use. We submit that
this was the hest that could be 'done-
and it was to good a thing that - the
leading rebels to-day admit that , it .
made success to them impossible. It
I made successes posSible •to us only' for
the reason that the people, of all con
ditions-poured their little hoards into
the treasury Of the nation,' and took
the ; bonds as 'security.. ` Had 'the coun
sel, of
.sueli men as ,lioratio. • Seynactur
and oiii or Democ ra tic)enders prevails ,;
the people. would I.iave refused le' itifin
the Government
,and ' we' must ' lia . V . e,
fallen a prey to the, machinations of.
treation ; .and in that - .ease , the people
ti r.
Would , have been lef, ' 'with aniaSs of (iv
redeemable currencl in their' hands.
'There would have b yen no bond 6; 'but
there 'would have been no Government.
The' nation's evidencez of debt consti
tutes the evidences of its ability to stand,
and the, pledge of its vitality.
10. Seymour complains that taxation
. . . - •
is uneciaal. 'With it everequak at any
time,or in any country? Never. At,
best ! nations only, approximate Nuall
• . •
ty. : Does he tnean that • the bonds are
not taxable•for national, State; and: La
bel purposes? Were the Mexican War .
debt bonds taxable for those pOrpoSes ?
Or the Oregon. war debt bonds? Or any
'bonds of the *United' States? , Does' 'not :
Mr. Seytnoar Ant* that the Sbpreme„
Court of, the United States .has, ever
held that national securities Cannot be
taxed for State, , and local purposes ?
When the leaders of the Democratic
Party held the most part of the nation
al evidences of debt, as'they did before
the war of 1861-5, did anybody of that
party suggest that those bonds ought
to be taxed? . Not a word of it; not a
word of it. There was nO complaint
then that Horatio Seymotir, James 13u=
chanan, and other Democratic chiefs
.were privileged to in vest in U. S. secur
ities and exempted from taxation. Nor
did any of Horatio Seymour's school of
demagogues complain when a Demo
cratic Secretary of the Treasury, in 1860,
anticipated the payment of some mill
ions of the then existing public debt,
thus emptying' the gold in the treasury
into rebel pockets. Mr. •:eyniour neg
lects these lit tic facts of history because
they damn him and his party. We
shall not neglect them, nor shall - the
people forget then'. , • f'
But in no one . thing does AV.. Sey
mour presume so much upon tie pro
found ignorance of his' audito:S as 'in
that portion of his spee . Ch relating to
immigration. "Time was," . says this
insolent demagogue, "when we could
invite I?,uropeans to share with us - the
material blessings of our great country."
Brit " now that the Constitution is
trampled in the dust, the laws defied,
and the Executilie insulted," says he,
"who wants to come lucre?'' He wi I I find
his answer in the statistics of immigra
tion during the last, two years, which
show an increase of. immigration oier
any other two `yetirs.of our 4istsnee as,
a nation_ ..Th...i.----1,........a.,- 7 .- -- ronow -
Mr. Seymour's lead know little, of Con
and less of laws, and care
legs about, either. When they learn
something about„ the basins-:: of gov- I
erning they escape from the toils of
conscienceless demagogues, and take
away the occupalsion of such men. •
The remainder of Mr. Seymour's
speech is unmitigated buncombe. The
'American eagle is' apostrophized, and
-we are assured that there is no party
but the Democratic party ; and Horatio
is its prophet.
... .
PosTsonmun.—The above was in
type before the result of the Tammany
Hall _Convention was knowii, or even
reached. We therefore add this post
script to say that the unconscionable
demagogue whose speech we have emu
mented.on in the foregoing, has recaiv
ed the nomination. of the Democracy
for the Presidency. , His associate ,is
Frank Blair, Jr., of whom it, is enough
to say that he is a tricky politician
when sober, and a miracle of stupidity
when drunk, which used to be every
day in the year. We believe that his
hpits remain astey were—very. dis
t l 7*
There is something Absurd about this
ticket, and YeTIFW - ellieflects the char
acter of the Democratic party. :With
Seymour to fraternize with the rioters
of 1863, and Blair as bottle-holder, we
see no reason why they ought not, o
concentrate the strength of the. party :
But the best judges )ook upon the
Tammany nominations WI ali acknowl
edgement of defeat f(ob the party in
When we lead that the New York
Roughs cheered Seymour and Wade
Hampton' at th 6 Tammany powwoW,
we are inspired. , ttfresh with admiration
for the fitness orthings. It reminds us
of that lachrymose event in the Phila
delphia Convention, when Massachu
setts and South Carolina entered the
shanty arm-in-arm. Thus We see how
it is that some things are necessary, and
some appropriate.
It will giVc.our " Democratic " fel
lOw-eitizens pleasure to learn that the
registration act of last winter, and the
law disfranchising deserters,
,have been
declared unconstitutional iiy the Su- r
preme Court of the State. Judges
Thompson, Strong, and ShatsWood,
ruling against the laws, and Read and
Agnew dissenting. The registration
act was intended to prevent fraudulent
voting, and ;was a direct bloW at -the
coffee market. If and• man will witch

will see that Senator Wallace i3llaain in

who would see the praetlee of frauds
upon election boards abolished, if that
-were possible, can /lOW ace. who .favors
such practices. The Supreme Court is
composed of three " Demberati," and
two Republicans. The former deulared
the law unconstitutional while the lat
ter sustained it. The peOple •can also
see who is in favor of restoring deser
ters to an equality with the c 7 oldiers
who stood by the llag-.
This 4 decision proVes - two things ,t,q

that the - deserters are regarded as nat.

The plight of Mr. Chief Justice Chase
reminds us of:' atory teld 'of an 'cutting
iastic colored gentleman who ,went ,to
hear Whitfield preach. The meeting
was held in a large barn, and the barn-,
yard was not remarkably clean. The
colored gentleman . arrived too late to
get inside ; but hearing the stentorian
voice of the preacher, began, to shout,
and at last . rolledin!er and oiler An
tiltifcif the barn-satd,utitil 'he - was "a
sight, to be seen." The audience' left
the barn . the , eluse of the' meeting,
and seeing the conition'uf" the, colored
gentleman asked what '44.1 'happened,
"Bless year - souls," said.he, '"Massa
Whitfield's sash a powerful preacher!"
i93nt Mr. Whitfield' did na r pretteli to
day," returned his inteloeutor. "0,-gor
ra!" dried the old geuticinati,; den ; dis
chile roll hi de nmil,for nothing."
The resignation" of Judge' Linn; of
the 25th Judicial District,' subjects that
gentlenian' te' severe censure from Re
publicans. , The Judge: alleges in his
letter of :resignation that sedentary'em
ployMentinjtireshis health. ,The Cep
'ter :Preas contains a _ _pretty plain com
mentary upon the Judge's letter. The
editor asks hatv it'was
.that the Judge

.year Stain on the Supreine' Bench,

The qUestion is pertinent. • It was not,
perhaps, anltct of wistlOrninhithto he

seized upon a suspicious looking bottle containing
couple of ounces of corrosive sublimate in a

poison on the cork, and the name on-the label, tho
thirsty youth supposed it to ho liquor and bolted
it straight. The result wns,an intlnal commo

A passenger by a night train on the
Hudson River railroad tells the follow
ing : The train was detained at Green
bush for a little while, and while wait
ing.a cattle train came \on the other
track and stopped. Such a noise has
seldom been heard ; the cattle bellow
ed, the sheep set up a bleating, and. the
hogs grunted, until the passengers were
nearly crazed. One old fellow had slept
for hours, but this noise woke hin.r,—
Rubbing his eyes, he listened in amaze
ment. " Aye, aye I" says he, " what's
this ?" Peering into the darkness wAh
out discerning anything, and listening
more critically, he, at last satisfied him

the exclamation, " That must be a De

have for some time contemplated effecting a
thorough' domestic test—through regular and
diversilled , use—of all the varieties of Sowing
Machines that compete for the public favor ; and
have aecordtngly invited the se yore' manufacturers
to lend proper facilities for testing their machines.
Wo give our first notice to the Wilcox dc Gibbs
,Tia , euachine is exceedingly.; shoot,. Very
understand its parts and their use; and there is
'no excuse for getting it out of order until the
parts are fairly worn out. As a consequence, it
always works at a moment's notice, though it may
have been laid aside for months. The needle is
short and straight, and consequently not liable to
break; in six months use we have not broken or
bent a single needle. The "tension" is the most
manageable and certain contrivances of the kind,
and never baffles the operator. It never misses a
stitch. The thread is taken directly from the
spool, without rewinding. The work can be
raveled with the greatest ease, if desired, while it
is perfectly secure against raveling if • left to
itself. After much wear and many washings, the
stitching is found to retain all the roundness,
evenness and firmness, which are so much admired
at first. We have tried it on every kind of
garment, and have not yet found a broken
thread in its work. As a single-threaded machine,
we were prejudiced against it—believing that its
work would rip, pucker in washing, etc.; but all
objections on this score are found to be ground
less. We stand ready to do justice to every other
manufacturer, but we advise our readers to put
no faith in disfdtraging criticism, for we aro sat
isfied that none of any importance can be sus•
tained.—The New York Sun.
