At a time like this, when numerous de-
Tices are sprung to weaken aud divide our
ranks, it is well to fix in our minds some
safe standard of action as to party fealty.
To what extent we should yield our it.di
vidual tastes, preforonces and opinions, in
order to secure unity of action, is an in- I
qairy which should be seriously under
taken by every good citizen.
Parties originate in the attempt to bring
•bout tome change of public policy, by so
nfluenctng the popular mind as to secure
Kloption of their principles by the
akiug power. They are simply ex
tensions ef that general co-operation in
affairs, which mark the difference between
ivilized and savage communities. Recog
nizing a common work to be done, mil
ions of men form a vast organization to
achieve it. The necessity of this united
effort has been demonstrated by tho expe
rience of mankind, and men form parties
under its pressure, as certainly as thoy
organize civil government under the in
fluence of the healthful instinct of self
The Republican party sprang into exis
ence upon this principle. Slavery in the
South had ceased to bo a domestic or local
intitutiou. It had becomo powerful by
steady growth and a unity which no op
posing interest could boast. It aimed at
universal recognition. It sought national
ity. It claimed the protection of the na
tional government, and bad so far succeed
ed that every department was under its I
control. It distorted constitutional in
ternments, overturned the maxims of the
courts, aud broke through the sacred and
time-honored limitation of tbo Missouri
compromise even, to enlarge its boundaries
»Dd open the great Valley of the West to
its black waves of ruin. The poison of iti
Influence spread through the whole nation
al life, Btupefying its powers, benumbing
its moral sensibilities, and threatening
death. We can all remember that dark
period and its fearful experiences.
But it could not last. The foremost
minds of the nation saw the threatening
danger and sounded the alarm. The na
tional conscience was aroused and the way
of safety pointed out. The dormant par
ties, effete and corrupted by slavery, were
rent in twain. Turning from the barren
issues of the past, the intelligence, con
science, patriotism and Christianity of the
North unitod to form a new party, whose
purpose was to denationalize slavery and
bring back the administration of the Gov
ernment to the pure principles of its found
ers. That party, appealing to whatever
was best in the whole country, received a
support which no other had ever achieved.
It swept the nation and possessed the reins
It put down the rebellion raised to dis
member the country, and reorganized the
government by enlarging and deflu ing its
powers to meet the new exigencies. To-day
before the world applauded by
every intelligent friend of human freedom
and progressive civilization. Having pos
sessed the government and saved it from
destruction, to the Republican party is en
trusted the glorious mission of directing
Its powers to benificeut ends. The prin
ciples which first combined its millions of
adherents are still operative. The condi
tions are altered, but imperative duties
still remain to be performed.
Not only is the Republican party bound
to seoure tho results that it has gained for
the nation and for humanity, but it must
press forward to the work of removing all
abuses and conforming the political life
with the advanced civilization of our age.
In spirit, this is the woik which it set
out to do, but from which for the moment
it has been diverted by the revolutionary
resistance to its control. We appeal to all
thoughtful mon to say, if there is any
other political organization, whose char
acter or whose antecedents justify us in
abandoning our own.
We find ourselves still opposed by tbe
same party which defended the claims of
slavery ten years ago; which organized
the rebellion; waged war South, and
which in the North by every cowardly and
despicable means possible hindered the
efficiency of the armies of the Union. A
Bourbon party, it has learned nothing
from its disasters and is reckless of those
which it brought upon the South. j
To surrender the government to its con
trol is to yield all that we have gained by
four years of fearful war, and to remand
the Sjuth to auarchy and barbarism. It
means destruction of tbe national credit,
repnssion of industry and enterprise, and
the disorganisation of trade. For the
North it is a disaster, for the South it is

can cause. That cause seeks its triumph
through party organization, as the only
means by which its principles can be made
effective. The integrity of the organiza
tion is then as important as the principles
of which it ia the exponent. It becomes
invested with all the sacredness of the
cause of human libctty and progress. To
allow divisions aud disorder, to abandon
discipline, is to invite defeat, and is there
fore treasou to the cause. Whatever the
cause is worth that value attaches in its
full extent to thu means essential to its I
success. Fidolity is shown not merely in

prime condition of success, and this can
only be maintained by a generous, self

provision. Certainly, if we are not to
strip the debtor utterly, two thousand dol
lars in a home, or as capital to start any
business, is little enough. The Republi
cans havo initiated the policy of saving
tho unfortunate debtors of the South from
utter ruin, by giving them a fair chance
to start life anew. Every possible cncotir
»gemoul should bo given to men who, by
circumstances beyond their control am
incidental to tho civil war, have been
crushed beneath tho burden of debt.
Thousands of such men there are, who
have lost heart and hope, and who, cling
ing to tho wreck of their fortunes, float
helplessly along. Whatever will rouse
them to hope and helpfulness, and lead
them once more to take hold of Ufo with
a hearty grasp, and pull manfully against

Stowell deserves tho thanks of that large

his volume becomes such a record of so

occasion when the British invasion of the

lere is a little record by tho wife of Mr.
eaton that comes home to our editorial
nisinees and bosoms, dated June 27,1814 :
"Joseph (her brother, Mr. Gales) has re
amed within one hour from a fatiguing and
eally dangerous expedition, without any other
njary than excessive weariness, after being
posed to the fire of the British on an open
am, where the balls whistled round his ears
for the first time. The scene was novel to him,
but, unlike most other novelties, it was not
pleasing. He volunteered his services, while
absent, on every occasion of fatigue or hazard
which occurred, and was always 'to the fore'
when they expected attack. * • " •
William (her husband) has held himself ii
readiness to be called out with his company at
a moment's warning ; but I trust they will
have no further occasion Tor their armies, as
Oeneral Armstrong has issued orders for the
return of those who are at Benedict. Sunday,
the day on which tbe cavalry, riflemen, and
infantry from Georgetown and Washington
started to Nottingham, was a distressing
period. Seeing Joseph gcj and expecting
William to be ordered off every moment, ren
dered the parade which took place before our
door previous to starting extremely painful."

of an tin welcome Husband.
On Saturday last, says tho Pittsburg
Chronicle of the 28th, a case somewhat
Enoch Ardenish in its character, but with
a termination decidedly different from that
worked out by Tennyson, was developed
before Alderman Nicholson. It appears
that Mrs. S?.rah Williams appeared beforo
the Alderman and made an information
charging her husband, Thomas L. Wil
liams, with desertion. Mrs. Williams,
whose maiden name was Young, said that
in January, 1862, she was married to Mr.
Joseph E. Abbott, aod in September or
Decembor of the same year her husband
entered the army. A very short time after
he left home his regiment was engaged in
a fight, and ho was reported among the
killed. Apparent confirmation of tho re
port was subsequently received, and the
wife, who was childless, mourned the loss
of her husband with sincere sorrow.
For four years she wore the weeds of
mourning, but after that they wore dis
carded, and s"he was united iv matrimony
to Mr. Williams. She and her second hus
band lived happily together until within a
month or two ; three children had been
born during the time, and no thought of
trouble oppressed them. A month or two
since husband No. 1, who had long been
considered dead, and whose bones were
supposed to be resting on some Southern
battle-field, or in one of tho national ceme
teries, suddenly made his appearance at
the house of his wife, in full health and
being. Ho eagerly inquired about matters,
and soon undorstood the condition of
affairs, but did not give any explanation
of his long continued absenco and silence.
When Mr. Williams came home tho wife
told him of the unexpected return
of her husband, but stated that he
had given no intimation that he desired to
reclaim her. Mr. Williams was over
whelmed, but promptly decided upon
what course he would pursuit. Hiißband
No. 1 had acted very unliko Enoch Arden,
and he, No. 2 tis he was, determined to de
stroy the ending given by the poet to tho
parallel, aud resigned in favor of the first.
This determination he carried into execu
tion, and since that time, according to tho
statement of the wife, he has not only loft
her, but also neglected to provido for tho
maintenance of his children. Williams
was arrested and gave bail for a hearing iv
court. Husband No. 1, it would seem, ia

AN OLD SOLDIER |> NEW YORK WHO FOUGHT
There is now living in tho city of New
York the oldest of liviug seldiers, and he
celebrated the 106 th anniversary of his
birthday on the 9th of last month. This
remarkable man is Captain Lahrbush.
He is still active, walks a great deal, runs
up the steps of the houses of his friends,
and is more vivacious this spring than he
was last year.
Tbe correspondent of the St. Louis Chris
tian Advocate gives us this sketch of the
wonderful hero'B career:
He was born, of course, in 17CC, the
year in which the partition Of I'oland gave
territorial consolidation to Prnssia and
completed the project of Frederick the
Great. Louis XIV. was then oq the
throne of France—one of tho most peace
ful and influential of the French inonarchs.
Since the Captain's birth, four nionarchs
have swa, ed the sceptro of Prussia, and
thirteen different governments havo ruled
in Franco. The Captain's first work in
war was to fisjht against tbe French Re
public, and his second against tho French
in Ireland. The first great battlo iv which
he appeared was that of Jena, in which,
on the 14th of June, 1800, he saw anni
hilated a military power whoso upbuilding
had cost a century and a half. He was
then in tho suito ofJLord Castleroagh.
He subsequently becamo acquainted
with emperors, kings, princes and field
marshals by the multitude. Standing on
the banks of tho Nfeman ho saw Napoleon
shake hands with the Emperor Alexander
When those great men met on a raft.—
Then Frederick Willitim 1., of Prussia,
was a king without a kingdom. The cap-
tain had fled from Jena with tho hapless
King Frederick William, of Prussia, and
his lovely Queen Louise.
He lived to sec their son occupy Paris,
and to assist in keeping guard in St. He
lena over that Napoleon who had been (he
terror of Europe. He has lived to sco the
King of Prussia, whose duty it was origin
ally to hold the basin nnd ewer to tho Em
peror of Germany, now himself Emperor
of Germany, with his feet on the necks of
He has lived through the whole history
of the United States. When tho Prince
of Wales was in this country he paid his
respects to the captain, and endeavored to
ndtico him to return to England. But he
lad become too old and too much attached
o his adopted country. Tho marvel of all
his is, that once tho captain was left for
dead on tho field of battle, onco he was
cast up for dead by the ocean, once he wis
trickon down as dead by the pestilence,
tnd ho has always been diseased.
Still greater marvel, he drinks lauda
num as other men drink claret. His friend,
Jeneral Depeyster.says that ho once took as
navy grains oi opium for relief as would
till as many ordinary men as there aro
years in the Oiptain's ago. Ho goes to bed
t 5 o'clock P. M. and rises at 2A. M. Is I
ot this a most remarkable history ? The I
Id gentleman's oye is clear and his mem
ry unfaltering. Ho is a marvel among I
The Democrats declare that (he atro

a recognized part of the Democratic party,

strenuously for their defence ? Why do
they not help suppress the scoundrels ?
When they do that people may beliove
that they aro not in league with the mur
