To our Readtrs,
Now that the election is over, we shall de
vote less of our space to political matters.
More attention will now be given to the
news, both local and foreign. The literarv
selection for the oeming winter will be of
such a character, as to make the Democrat
an ever welcome fireside visitor. Will our
friends aid us in increasing its circulation ?
We have delayed our paper for a day or
two in order to give the result of the Presi
dential-election held on Tuesday last. We
can offer to our friends no such tidings < f
Triumph, as we had hoped we could. It is
now conceded on alt hands that wo are to
•uffer another four ytars of the misrule pf
Abraham Lincoln. BJore that time shall
have expired, the adherents of the party that
placed him in power will regret the deed of
madness end folly which they have commit
ted, more deeply than we now do. When
v thoy shall he restored by the sharp lessons
of experience, to reason, they will curse the
man they have chosen to rule over them,
with curses louder and deeper than the men
who, from the first, saw the danger of his re
election, and who s!rove to avert it. The
treachery and deceit which have been prac.
tieea upon them, will unfold itself to theii
mind in all its hideous deformity. They
will then feel al! the chagrin, disappointment
and rage, which follows misplaced and abused
The Democratic party will have the proud
consciousness that they have contributed in
T to manner to bring a trout this result
Vv hile it will share in all its evil conse.
quences, it will share nine of the disgrace,

following vigorous citig*lkm to one of the
most foul mouthed, abusive, acd unveracious
newspapers iu the world. It is a paper in
sp.rcd by tlu*;>int ot William O-.bbett an 1
4 Thomas Paine, weakened and degraded b.
adulteration with the spirit of Marat and
"ll' race Greeley—the falsest, of prophets
the most inconsistent of pi liticiams, the r*>bi
dest of disuniomsts, and most mendacious of
hypocrites—Horace Greeley a few weeks ago
smarting under the exposure <>l the debauch-*
cry or New York Abolition leaders at a mis
cegenation ball in Twenty third street, came
out iu a double-leaded editorial deprecating
the use of foul epithots, abusive language and
disgusting lies in a Presidential campaign
From that day to this we have read the Trib
uae regularly,and the mildest expressions wo
have seen m it in describing Democrats and
the Democratic party in general, are about as
:o'!ows : Liars, scoundrels, dogs, dirt eaters,
secessionists, traitors, thieves, slave-drivers,
slave-breeders, advocates of human bondage,
mercenaries, cowards, and Convicts. New
York is a Democratic city, arid Horace Gree
ley, luckily for himself, lives in it, and this
accounts lor the phenomenon that he has not
been horse whipped since he was a member
of Congress. If he were a Democratic editor
and lived in an Abolition city and using such
language as his journal habitually uses to
wards political opponents, there is little doubt
he would have been mobbed and probably

The Meanest Men lu Creation.
Judge Abbot, of B >ton, n Democrat, who
we believe has lost two sons in the war, in a
recent speech expresses his opiuiou thus
plainly of Republicans :
Let me ask fur a raounii! who those men
are who denounce tho-<e who appeal to the
better part of man's nature. For twenty
years past they have endeavored to destroy
1 the Union. * * These are the men who

Union. They are the mea who have talked
I about war. war that is not to last always,
j but who never have and never will risk a

j tney talk if war they mean to risk the lives
i of your children and mine, while they remain
,at home. They belong to the class you have
j heard of before, who are willing to sacrifice
, a!! their wives relations and even consent to
1 sacrifice tLeir first cousins in the war, but

MR. LINCOLN'S CHOICE READINGS. —An
1 cient phi!ophers need to say, that the best
1 indication* of a man's inward feelings was to
be fouui in the choice of his readings and in
the communion of the soul which the writers
of the age. Ido not believe that this re fiec
lion hrs lost anything of its accuracy for be
ing old. Mr. Lincoln, who trios to regulate
his life upon the model of the great statesmen
of Rome and Greece, and, who to that effect
ha 6 livi d m close intimacy with Montaigne
i for the last three months, adds by bis exam
: pie a new weight to the authority of the j
j old sages. lie reals the old Eronch writer
with deli Jit, and says he is the greatest
i thinker, France, and perhaps the world, has
I produced. His readings are not, untortu !
j notclv tar us, confined to that book. Oth j
ersot a more dangerous character occupy, al- j
j so, his leisures. He has recently added to !
his private library the '• History of Groin- |
well's Protectorate," the " Return ol Nap.de i
an the Etrst from the " Coup d'Etat j
of Napolean the third." These three b >oks
which might bo called "Treatise on the /rt
>f Usurpation," are now his subject for med
itation. He reads them by day and by nigbt
and puts them under his pillow ca*e when h,,
goes to bed, so as to have the deleterious ex ,
atopics and practise contained in these b'Kiks ' 1

j beve or imagine it will ? Can you even hope
' so, in the face of the history of the past wea-
Iry years, during which time Ihis war has
! dragged its slow and bloody length along ?
Is the rebellion really just about crashed
out? Does not that oft-repeated assertion
begin to pull upon your ear ? It is true, j
Sherman holds Atlanta, hut his cumraunica*- I
tions are constansly menaced, and n >t unfrc* .
quently temporarily interrupted. With less
than a powerful army, one sufficient to resist
a large force, he cu!d not possibly maintain
his position. Sheridan has defeated Early ; i
our troops fight gloriously ; they pcur out '
their blood without stint, and afflict, compen
sating!}-. severe losses upon the enemy ; but
the end is not yet. The barbarous proced
ure of sweeping destruction, which has made
a desert of the bentifn! valley of Virginia,
shows that this war is not near its end, and
plhinlr indicates that our generals do not re
card it. Gfant still beleaguers Richmond . i
and there", and. as on auxiliary thereto, in the
valley of Virginia, active operations ate going
on. Elsewhere the war seems to be at a
s and still. Richmond may fall, though the
present campaign is already too far advanced
to expect it. before, at hast, another cam
paign -hall be er.ti red upon.
BtU suppose Lincoln to be r--e!eclel. will
the war then be any nearer at an end ? Will
the people of the South fight any the less des
perately ) Ate not all the leading papers of
the South earnestly hoping to tec lntii elected?
Thfry bohliy say so, and thero is goud reason
why they should prefer his triumph to that of
XlcCelllan. They know that his fanatical
folly has united ihe white Southern people
as one ; and they fear more the Greeks hear
ing gifts than arms. If the people of the
North should d chre in lavoi or the old Un
ion under the Constitution, tTc leaders of
the rebellion know very weil that the Union

ihe whole South, n -t one, from JefT.-is >n I),i
vin down, who doe* not hope to see fanatfc
is u triumph in the p. rson of Lincoln. They
could" then still keep their people thor
oughly united, while tf'oy would have less to
fear from one whose Administration his par
tisans denounce as " po'itica'ly, financially,
a failure." than from a new man, distinguish
ed for ability, who would be surrounded bv
the most eminent leaders of both the
parties who formerly controlled the destinies i
of this nation. McCltdh.n's Cabinet would j

It may be in teres ting to those who are;
now idolizing Mr. Train to real a few ex
tracts frotn his speech at Rahway, Now Jer j

There is more danger to-day of the West

ed, then there was of the Son.h seceding he- ,
fore the fall of Sumter. When a shot is fired i
into Cincinnati, or • Oleavelaad, or Chicago,
the country will wane up to find that it has
been sleeping in a bed of bombshells.
The debt, now two thousand millions, or
with gold at two hundred, four thousand
millions, will hang like a nightmare over the
East. A dr-bt exempt from taxation is soon
wiped off. The Confederate bonds, the j
French assignats, and our Continental mon- [,
ey are instances of litis wiping out process.

1 ask again what has occurred to change '
public sentiment in fav .r of Mr. Lincoln ?
Is he the same man that Pomeroy denounced?
that Chaso said was unfit for power ; that
Ben Wade attacked ? that Winter Davis
jeered at ? Is it the same Lincoln that Fre
rnont pictured as a Tyrant and Usurper?—
that Dr. Cheever called Knave, and Wendell
Phillips, Villain ? It cannot be. What has
happened to this man, who is so
eloduent in Philadelphia, the same that vili- '
fied the President at Cleveland ? Oh, my
country ! what crime hast thou committed
that thou shouldst be so shamefully betray

in this agony of our federal S3'Bi*tu one feels,

broken, and as it were, one more rivet torn '
out of the great m lehine of Government, and |
that, too, when it most needed the close Cohe j
sion which such influence gave. There was |
so long as this great constitutional jurist liv- i
ed, a confidence, a sort of repose, a faiih that
there was still some anchotage, which sus- ,
tained tha most despondent. It is all gone i
now. While the horrors of violent deaths
are around us, and m the very crisi of the j

Sincerely anxious to mingle no wor 1 of un

impossible for us to be silent as to the future.
Although the function of Federal Chief Jus- j

the necessary decadence of judicial indepen- ;
dunce which war ami its mischievous iutiu. j
ence involve, will be far less important and
dignified than it has been. 8 till, as a mere
mutter of picturesque interest, we may La
excused for some soucitude as to the success- j
' or of Jay. and Rutledge, and Ellsworth, and
Marshall and Taney. Who will be appointed ,
by Mr. Lincoln, is a question on the lips of
! every thoughtful man. It is beyond the |
' scope of our except in this, that j
be it who it may, pure judicial independence
will hardly be rt quired as a qualification. The
Administration has too many unadjneated
political questions to permit it to he indepen
dent itself ; and we look forward to one more
I dismal spectacle in our day of ugly visions
of the Federal Jodie.ary tottlring to the
grave, which threatens to swallow up all that
once was dear to us.

Now and Then)
SOMETHING FOR LABORING MEN TO
BILL OF GOQDS PDRUHASDD IN 1810
In the good old IKun c; rt c D iys, not more
than four years ago, the following till of
goods was pure ..ase lin the town of Scran
*ldn: ' ■ - - I * fiC yjF XX a. jls.

5 " R-'o Coilee,
14" Porto It c Sugrr, jOO
12 Yds. Bust Brown Sheeting, 100
10 " Merrimac Calico,
But the people wanted a change. Titey
got it, and such a change i Ilaru it the
same bill purchased now under the reign of
II- neet (?) Abe.
5 lbs Butter $2 75
1 •' Oolong Tea, 1,75
5 * Rio Coffee $,50
14 " Porto Rico Sugar, 3,50
12 Yds Brown Sheeting, 9.00
10 " Merriuiac Calico, 4.00
The above are all necessaries that go int
the famdj of every poor man. At the time
the first bill was purchased a mechanic rp
reived $1.50 p-r day— hence it took him
about 3 and a halt days to pay for it.
Now he rece-vefi $2 50 per day ; conse
quent iy it would take Inn abvut 9 and a half
days to earn the same bill, or ncarlv three
time? -■ '"iig. And ilos is the effect of the
big wages that the Shodi* ites talk übnit.

Tile Illoomer t'odume, whi hsimeone (Mrs.
j Bloomer, we suppose) steiupte.l to iutro.lu te -ours
j years since, ;*o learn from tha very hig'i-st I 1 :.i -
tie auihority, is n.w about to be revived unler
more favorable auspit-es.
Die reason it H is -o g n rally tib icej, is priha
bly owing to the fact that it wu< so roujily ad-pt
i ed by "tho stronger mneied worn on. and weak min!-
led tuen aud to the fact that ns an nut loor, walk
I ing habit, it is not :ta elegant and gra<;eful as tb
bnia-1, flowing skirts. Ladies who eugago in hns
work, and euiinarT employments, after several
years xperience, have discovered that hoops ure
not convenient in the kitchen. The Bloomer is
therefore receiving a m re favorable Consideration
Frmn certain hints, we sheuld not be surprised to
find the short skirts and turk'i-h trowsors on the wo
men that 'tends our babies, and boils our potatoes,
fl this curtailing of skirts will alsi curtail our bills
with the calico dealers, we shall be more easily rec
onciled to the innovation.
NOTE.— Our friends who wear boots, and chew to
bacco who may be nervous on the subject of domes
tic usurpation of the distinguishing garment, ure ad
vised to prepare for sc-veie trials,
Cuffs and Collars.—X thing is m,re necessary
| to complete a toilette than tiue and becoming cuffs
: a.id collars. Ever)' lady know? that, but all do not
j kn ov just where to suit themselves with new styles
| and so stick to the old-fashi uu I shapes worn for years
I'ropping in the other day at our fiiepd's, Messrs.
IST,,TT A BALDW i>, 505 Broadway, wo found that
they had been busv in supplying the public with
these articles in every new and elegant designs
Amongst thenr w noticed parti- ul irly three kinds,
of cuff?. One very broad and. plain, the Empress
by name,fastened with three golden buttons; anoth
er trimmed with Valenciennc3 laecu delicately flut
ed ; an ! still a third, called the Christina cuff, fast
ened with two buttons, and with an embroidered la
pel, the variety of the emhroi lerv pattterrs being
surprising. In addition to the3e,the "Louisa sleeve
so arranged that the hand cau be slipped through
i without u rbuttonir.g The -Empress and Alc-xanl
ria sleeve.is triiume-1 elegant'y, an 1 somO very f-c*
' coming double cuffs- Ladies who dasiio to be ne.it
' and elegant c-an do no better than to call at. this es
tablishment nnd SUJH ly themselves. Collars a ls
made to match all styles of cuffs anil sleeve?. '-d
are so elegantly "dene uj." that they look •--
cast in a mopld.
