, Rekulicaib, Work I This is queer
"advice, ii it not, when the election ia jnst
over, and another one ia a year distant ?
Yet this is the very reason why we give
the advice. The progress of Republican
principles has been greatly retarded by
ths neglect of its friends to work until
the approach of elections. Ths very best
time to work, is when there is a calm in
politics. During nine or ten months of
the year, ths enemies of Republicanism
bow thejteeds of falsehood and slander,
and'the Republicans sever take much
pains to eradicate them until the two or
three months preceding an election, and
then it is too late to accomplish the nee
ssarygood. The Democracy never cease
their charges of negro equality, Aboli-
tionlsm, Knosr-Notbingism, &c, against
the Republican party ; and they should
ba met all the time. Many well-meaning
people, who are not in the habit of ex
amining into politics, are deceived by
these misrepresentations ; and frequently
much time is necessary to disabuse the
public mind of error.
The only true method is to work all
the time. Whenever you find an honest,
well-meaning man, who is willing to lis
ten to the truth, explain to him the prin
ciples of Republicanism, compare the
acta of parties, and expose the slanders
of the enemy. To render the Republican
party successful, it is only necessary that
the truth should be known. To accom
plish this desirable result, keep tvnj man
informed npon the principles and acts of
parties, and make known facts as t they
ocenr. Let every earnest Republican
make (his a portion of hie daily duty.
and we will soon have a glorious erop of
Republican voters, who are ready and
willing to march up to the polls, without
the everlasting pulling, tugging, coaxing,
running and planning which have to be
resorted to upon every election day.
Douglas' Revbhob. Douglas is bad
ly beaten, but ho has died game. From
the time when he opposed the Lecompton
Constitution, the President and Senate
hava carried on a relentless war against
him humiliating him in the Senate,
and doing their share toward defeat
ing him for the Presidency. But he has
been, gloriously revenged. The Presi
dent has been buried so deep that politi
cal j-erorractioacan never reach lifm ;
JoeXsne has been consigned to the shades,
and a Republican elected to the Senate in
his place ; Bigler will soon take his last
look into the Senate, as a member there
of; Titch has heard his death-knell in In
diana, and the path is left open for Bright
to folio .v him ; Gwin is making his last
straggle in California; and Green, of
Missouri, feels that his case is critical.
Douglas has gone under, but ho has had
the satisfaction of dragging half a dozen
of his bitterest enemies down with him.
The Election. Official returns of ths
elections in the States hare not yet been
received. In the Northern States, the
result is as announced last week. Lin
coln carries every one, except New Jer
sey, which goes for fusion. Bell has car
ried Kentucky and Tennessee. Breck
inridge has probably carried the balance.
In Missonri, the result is doubtful be
tween Douglas and Bell ; and Maryland
and Virginia are close between Bell and
Breckinridge.
MOB! 60GTHKB "CoNSlRVATISM."
We have just learned of another instance
of Pro-Slavery tyranny and fanaticism,
which is hut an additional evidence that
the people are doing a righteous thing in
strangling ont modem Democracy. A
gentleman well known in this communi
ty, having been for three years a promi
nent 'citiaan of White Cload, ?a few
months since, on account of the critical
state of hk wife's health, returned to his
native State of Virginia, in the hope that
his wife's health might he improved un
der her father's roof. While here, he
was a Free State man, but never took an
active part in politics.
Our friend, in order to employ himself
during his necessary sojourn in Virginia,
assisted his father-in-law, who ia Post
master in one of the leading towns of
Virginia. He avoided political discus
sions, knowing the excited state of the
public mind ; bnt he was not permitted
to rest, being constantly bsntsred for his
political sentiments. He at length ac
knowledged that Lincoln was his choice.
Public fury was immediately excited
against him. A committee of citizens
waited upon his father-in-law, and read
the law to him ; charged him with hav
ing an. Abolitionist in hU employment ;
and demanded that he forthwith discharge
him, or they would report him to the
President, and have him removed from
office. To preserve peace, and allay the
excitement, our friend was compelled to
quit the office, and go to doing nothing.
As soon as his wife is able to travel, he
intends leaving his native State forever,
unless compelled to quit sooner, by that
invincible Southern argument, tar and
feathers. He is in daily expectation of
receiving orders to travel, from the "law
and order" men of the town.
An old and respectable citizen of the
same town, who for a long time held the
office of Commissioner of the Revenue,
and was Secretary of the Young Men's
. .-- ' . . ..
christian Association, said that, if Lin
coin was elected, he would accept the
office of 'Postmaster. ' A committee wai
ted upon him, and ordered him to leave
the State within three days. It is repor
ted that he has left.
These things occurred in the heart of
the Valley of Virginia, where repose the
bones of Daniel Morgan, who fought for
American freedom ! Ia this a sample of
it?
$ Ootraob Upow Mb. DouaLAB. When
Senator Douglas attempted to speak at
Montgomery, Alabama, a few daya before
the election, he was pelted with rotten
eggs! It had been his boast that he
could speak hia sentiments as freely in
the South as in ths North, and his friends
urged the South to support him, because
he had'beea the rteadfast friend of South
ern rights'; yet this is the treatment' he
receives in return. When the Democrat
ic Senate degraded him, at the command
of the South, he meekly bore it; and in re
turn, proposed a gsg law for the benefit
of the South now let us see how he will
take this last outrsge. The Presidential
contest is over, and he has no farther
cause for subssrviency to the interests
of Slavery ; and if there is a tithe of the
manliness and courage in his composition
which his friends claim for him, he will
at once take an honest and bold stand,
and make his insulters rue the outrage
they have perpetrated. And hia follow
ers, if they are honest will cut loose from
a party with, which they affiliate for
the eake of the name Democracy, and
take a position which they can occupy
with honor to themselves,' and command
thefpublic confidence. , There is but one
place to which Doug! ar and bis followers
can go, with honor, and to which they
must go, unless they intend to humili
ate themsslves to their insulters, and lick
the hand that smote them and that place
is in the Republican ranks.

last, a number 'of the candidates (irid
numbers of both political parties,' were
couccicu at xroy, at wieir respective quar
ters, awaiting" the returns from the vari
ous precincts of the County.
When it became certain that the Re
publican ticket was elected, its friends
procurred a tar barrel and kindled a bon
fire on the square. Enraged at this man
ifestation of joy and triumph, a crowd of
excited and drunken Democrats issued
from their dens, and with drawn pistols
and knives, threatened the persons and
lives of the Republicans. Tearing to
piecoe the bonfire, they attempted to roll
the burning barrel into the office of Hen
ry Boder,' County Clerk. Stones were
hurled through the windows, and a seri
ous difficulty threatened. We are pleas

defeated candidate for orient, discoursg

W. D. Wood. We wish to ssy a
few worda regarding the late Democratic
candidate for the Territorial Council.
Before doing so, however, we will apol
ogize to our readers far thus burdening
our columns. While this msn was a
candidate it was our duty to show him
up to the people, and they had a right to
suppose that with our last issue we should
drop the offensive subject. But this
man's acts, on the heel of election.
duce us to show to our readers in this
county, what cause they have for con
gratulation in his defeat.
We have given a brief recital of the
outrage committed at Troy on Tuesday
night. We are informed that W. D.
Wood was a prominent ring Header' in
tho not ; that be was perfectly mad with
whiskey that his language was the very
lowest profanity and obscenity, and that
whirling a bowie knife in his hand he
threatened, and attempted the lives of
peacsable citizens.
The election over, it seems that this
long haired representative of the first
family of Virginia has dropped his dis
guise ; that the ass has shed the lion's
skin.
His puny efforts at ruffianism really in
jure no one, for the little manikin could
be easily handled by a fourteen year old
boy. In a dark night, and with a pistol
or bowie knife, he might effect something.
Assassination or unexpected attack is the
only role in which he is to be fesred.
But had he been chosen to the Council,
his vote would have balanced that of a
better man, and he might have injured us
immensely. Thsnk God for our escape.
