UNION IS STRENGTH.
We do not recollect the time when, at
the lsual election in the fall, there were
, not oredieaded and disappointed men,
who, having aspired to`ollicial position
aud been thrown at .the primary elec
tions, have conceived themselves mis
used, and have, therefor, been tempted
to go back upon the party with which
they had hitherto acted, and come out
as Independents. Once in a long while
such a thing is a success; usually, it is
a lamentable failure: Perhaps it would
be safe to say that at least nine out of
every ten men whci try this, dig their
own political graves. The great and
constant success which so long attend
ed the Democratic party, was attributa
ble to the fact that it was well organ
ized and thoroughly drilled. Any man
might aspire to office; but, if beaten—
no matter how—at the primary elec
tions, the only course left for him was
to work faithfully for the success of the
ticket, and bide his time. It was not
always right, brit it insured success.--'
And while that great party really rep
resented Democratic principles, the re•
suit was good : was for " the greatest
good of the greatest number."
Politics have changed : the Democ
racy of to-day represents slavery, or
the belongings of slavery, rather than
freedom. It has too longllain at the
feet of the slave power to assume an
erect position on short notice; and,
whatever there may ho in the land of
true Republican thought and indepen
dent uetion, is vested to-day in the Re
Firmly believing this, and believing,
moreover, that the next Presidential
election is to n very great extent depen
dent on, the unity and success of the
Repuldiean party this fall, we earnestly
deprecate anything that looks to adivi
siott of strength on side issues.
"In union is strength." Let all who
believe that the triumph of Republican
principles is for the general good ; that
protection to home industry is protect
ing American interests against foreign
monopoly ; that the 13th, 14th and 15th
amendments to the Constitution Were
right and needful; and that the admin
istration of governmental affairs under
Republican rule has been 'successful,—
stand firmly, shoulder to shOulder, for
the legitimate ticket, event•lii it :mgh that
ticket may offend the person I prejudi
ces of each or any.
It is not Important to the general wel
fare that this or that man should get a
nomination ; but it is of importance
that the principles which have brought
us through national difficulties that
would have swamped any other nation
on the globe, shall continue to shape

But Connolly don't stay

pretty quarrel as it stands.
They do some capital be, vy " slog
ging" in the moral line, do the editors
of the New York Tribune ,1 and they
are especially strong on Mobs. Ever
since the Tribune office was mobbed in
the July riots, that paper has been chro
nically rabid on mob rule and Lynch
law. Other papers which assume the
'high moral tone acquiesce generally.—
Th is is all well enough ; but the editors
of the Tribune are no fools and they
cannot help seeing that the parallel be
itween ruffian-ridden and robbed San
Francisco and ditto, New YJrk, is per -7
feet. San Francisco cleared herself of
the ruffians and ballot-box stuffers In
one week, by an Arising of ,he people,.
for which there was no shadow of law ;
and the inference is unavoidable, that
New York might do the same. And
this has been suggested to that' much
abused city by more than o 'e paper—
ours among the number. T
l er° is not
a doubt that, If the citizens of New
York—the best citizens—would organ
ize themselves into avigilan e commit
tee, drop all other busines , and deal
severely with the scoundrels, tiae city
might be . .purified in one week, with
less expense and far better r sults than
are likely to obtain under he tedious
tangles of law in a twelvemOnth. See
ing this clearly, the Tribune suddenly
discovers that the Said Francisco mob
was not a mob at all, but a legitimate
uprising of the people. Andlthe well
edited .Day speaks the gerieral senti
ments of the moral press wlien it sayql
" It is a grave error to represent the
San Francisco vigilance committee as
a demonstration of Judge Lynch. No
thing can well be further from the truth;
That committee proceeded in perfect
order, observing all the forms of law.
It was guilty of no riotous action. It
flcondemned no man without fair trial."
9entlemen, We; are sorr to say it,
but you are talking bosh, ad you pro
bably know it. The laws and law offi
cers of San Francisco, from 'the judges
bench to the police courts, were in the
hands of shoulder-hitters and ballot
box stuffers. Every mem er of that
vigilance committee was act ng in con
travention-of the Jaws as hey stood ;
and, had the movement failed, many of
them would have, suffered Ifor the at
