with this popular inclination -to allow
the elections to go by default.

They stand greatly in need of success,
having submitted to total defeat so long.
It - might be an act of charity to grant

What it once was. '-‘lt had done, not

Perhaps no era in all .the history of
man, ever witnessed a contest at once
so sublime and grand ! The conflict
gave birth to the Republican party.-
-That party is not a creature made at .

times which developed it into life; // It
grew. It Was organic from .its birth—

This is, in brief, and, • 1 general terms,
all there was in the . truggle that etil-
Minate4 in the " • repressible conflict,"
which gave ris and Power to the Re
publican part, , and ended in the down
fall of slav/y and Dlamocracy together.
It is we9/at times to pause and review
the pat. We know the attitude of par
ties.. All the phases of this struggle
ar now history, and jilstory so fresh in
,the minds of all, that it seems a work
91 supererogation to even pass it in ro.
view. The times have developed Omen,
as well as parties ; for parties are made
up of men ; and the character of par
ties is the reflection of the principles of
the men. in the aggregate - composing
them. Who have made up the Demo
cratic party for the last fifteen yearq—
The old 'doughfacps—men who would
do anything to satisfy the demands of
slaVery and the dictation of the haugh
ty South—the leaders of the rebellion,
who had been plotting treason for thir
ty Years, and the men at the North ‘'vlio
gave them aid and comfort in their mad
attempt ;to tear down the Temple of
Liberty which our forefathers had cau
sed to spring forth from the fiery ordeal
of the Revolution. Thesehre they who
made up the great mass of this sham-
DeMocratic party; and the surviVors of
them give it character to-day. If there
were or are exceptions, (and there were
and are honorable exceptions,) they did
riot and do not shape the policy of that
party. Daniel S. Dickinson, Stephen
A. Douglass, John A. Dix,, Edwards
Pierpont, and it host of patriots, living
and dead, were Democrats; but their
counsel was repudiated by the party,
and they could not fellowship with
traitors. They the party till --
to Flo so was to array themselves against
their countrv—than tiww -.tont] lxy the
Country, ignoring a party which was
the'organized bower in the North upon
the success of which the holy hope of
the South depended. The men who
give that party character, if a hlacken
ed fame may be so called, were Jeffer
son Davis, Robert Toombs, Alexander .
11. Stephens, John C. Breckenridge,
James Buchanan, Jeremiah S. Black,
who declared that thegovernment could
not make war to save the country ; Geo.
W. Woodward, who said if the Union
- Was to be dissolved, our own State
should id - with the South; Horatio
Seymour, the "friend" of the rebel
-mobs in New York ; yallandingham,
wlio`was_banished by the good Lincoln
'for his treason, in time of War; George
H. Pendleton, who declared in Con
gress that he would never vote a dollar
or,' a man to carry on the "unholy"
war, and who said to the Southern
States: Depart in peace; Jesse Bright,
who was expelled from the U. States
Senate, in war-time, for Aiding and
.abetting the South ; Fernando Wood,
who, as Mayor of New York refused
to stop the shipment of aims South,
and favored the annexation of N. York
city to the Confederacy; and a host of
infamous men, who, in any other enun
try but free America, would long since
have been hung for their inAdelity to
the government.- -
Such have been the men who have
given law to the Democratic party ; and
they today shape its policy, so far as it
has any. HENRY SHERWOOD, the De
mocratic candidate for Congress,• has
been with them from thAeginning.—
It is vain to talk about his nor record.
He was not a War Democrat: he was
a Peace,Dernocrat; for he advocated the
electionof M'Clellan i ll) numerous spec
ches throughout this county, in 1864,
on a peace platform. We nil know
what the " Chicago Surrender" plat
form was. It declared in favor of a peg
cation of lystilities, 'on the ground that
the war had been a "failure.?' HENRY
SHERWOOD stood 'upon that platform
then, and in his speech at the Demo . ..„
cratic Convention which met in .this
village on the 17th instant, he state 4
that his principles were well known,
that be bad not changed, .and should
'not change them, and that be bhd been'
-chosen for his advocacy of them. He
stands upon his record : by the record
let him:be tried. In 1864, in a speech
at •Nelson; in a Joint discussion with
others, he defended the Chicago plat
form; and declared that the Southotould
never . be conquered. He said such a
hing was never known in history. He
taunted Republicans with anenumeras
tion of the defeats, of our armies, and
argued that It was folly to continue the
war. He denounced the Greenbacks,
which the government had issued to
save its life, as a worthless . currency.—
And why was it, pray, that Greenbacks
their wer e so far below par? It was be
cause of the'unpatriotic etlbrts of just
such men to bring the government of
the country into disrepute. It was be
cause there were so many just such
men giving aid and 'comfort to the Reb
els, by keeping up division, and tur
moil, and contention, at the North.—
And HENRY SHERWOOD now boasts
that he is' the candidate of the Demdc

tural and consistent with his past course
in politics.
Can such a man be trusted to ~mpres

For ourselves, we would as soon vote
for Vallandingham as for him. It is
true, that if there were nothing i prin

He says he has not changed hisiprinei
