The result o? the New Uar
shire eiee?i H will h . va rion
interpreted, (or. like Bible re>,
elections will bear many c -ustr;
tiens, Wo ari disposed ?0 coi
der that it shows thc radical c
??usi of tue Demcr-caratic party
which we have often spoken, a
tiie existence of which is unie
able. The feeling toward ti
partv, which nairn ailv avow <
of the war and its anteceden
can be changed only by the cte;
est nnd most positive evideu
ttrat it can bo saiely trusted
deal with vigor, sagacity, a:
patriotism with ali the quest to
of the hour. Bui instead ot" ]
: vealing these dualities, tho Dei
ecraiie party has displayed a tot
want of them. It has shown I
the organiza.ion ol tire House i
continued subserviency to its e
"masters. By its elections of Se
ators, and nomina:bus. as
New Hampshire, to eonspicoi
positions, it has indicated the toi
of ir.s preferen ces. I t h as a ttei n
ted to cany Ohio and Pemrs}
vania upon a platibrm of r.
money. It has aimed /.calons'
to help itself by exposing tl
offenses for which the Rep ubi
eau party is responsible, hilt
lias shown no serious, carnes
intelligent purpose or capacity <
reform or progress. Ic wouh
therefore, be soi prising that
should be preferred to the part
which, whatever its evils, is UJ
questionably that which cou
mands the sympathy and suppoi
of the larger part of the votin
population of the [Juion, exec]
m the late rebel States.
To this must be aided iii
conviction that although the R<
publican party can not escap
responsibility ibr the char ac te
conspicuous positions, the event
of the last few months show no
only the necessity, but the pm
pose, of the control cf the part
by those who represent its rea
spirit of progress and ? e?brm. I
is the belief that the plain pre
tests anti criticisms of Rep?blica]
papers upon such scandals as th?
whiskey trials, the BSLKXA;
disgrace, and the SCHENCK: affair
such vigorous denunciations am
demands ns those of the Un tor
L'-ague Club resolutions in Nev
York; the general feeling, o
which everybody is conscious
that the condition of success is ;
loftier tone of political mo ra lit}
in administration-it is the be
lief that all such signs show .
health.y Republican revival
which still keeps the State o
New Hampshire rn Rep?blica;
hands.
This we say upon tue presump
tion that there is some kind oj
political sigiiicance in the edee
tion. If there is not; if it be. as
some of the papers stoutly and
with perfect composure assert,
mereh a bargain and sale; ii
each party, anxious to secure thc
first marked success of this year,
sent thousands o? dollars into the
State and entered into a rivalry
tor the p ur chase of votes, the
result ol the New Hampshire
election shows only that the
Republicans spent the most mon
ey, aad that American institu
tions are far gone in utter
decaderce and decay. There is
something astonishing in the
half-indifferent way in which it
was asserted thai tile election
was carried by money, and that
more dollars would have made
the victory Democratic instead of
Republican. The composure o?'
ihr all. i:;Ui?:?i ????piles thai thc
