WHAT WE MUST WORK FOR
The duty of all patriotic Republicans is
to work unceasingly to retain the general
government in the hands of their party.
The good of the country is dependent upon
this. It matterf little to anybody, except
the mere office-holders themselves who fill
our local offices, which are in no way con
nected with tho general politics of the
nation, so long as the central power is in
the hands of those who will maintain tht
present condition of things, and prevent a
restoration of the old Democratic rule.
The Republican party has reconstructed
the government according to its ideas upjn
a strong federal basis, in which the nation
al authority is declared to be paramount
and the States subject thereto. This theo
ry has been recognized Bnd admitted,
I ugh unwillingly, by the Southern States,
eh accepted it as a condition precedent
heir readmission, with the abolition of
cry ami the enfranchisement of the
red race. As it was accepted under
:e.-it, and contrary to the wishes of a
c minority of the people, it is probable
they will respect and abide by ths
is imposed auy longer than tho party
imposed them shall havo the ability
jaipol obedionca to the conditions ; at
:, until time shall have wrought a rad
change in the ssntiments of the peo
ple, and buried the pass in the tomb ol
The old-generation of secessionists of the
Alex. 11. Stophens and Jeff. Davis school,
who tenderly nurse thoughts of a return
to the good old ways of their younger
days, wilt never yield* their sentiments or
surrender their aspiration, uutil the grave
has closed over them and they finally rest
from agitation. But the new generation
that is growing up are not imbued with
those Aid State-rights and antedeluviati
theories, and in a few years when they
come more actively upon the stage of po
litical life, to take the place of their fathers,
the heresies of the past will have b?en lost
sight of, and ba as little known or talked
about as tho old stage-coaches which fitly
emblemiza their era.
But these young men aud women will
not be ready to take the reins for some
rears yet, end during that interval, which
we may call tbe transition period, it will
be nccossary that the present progressive
and enlightened conductors of the govern
ment should control its affairs and keep it
in the right direction; that they should
carry it so far beyond the dangerous parts
ot ths3 road, before resigning it into their
hands, that there will bo no danger of any
ccidtntor relapse through the suddenness
f change. It must, in a word, be carried
over the trestle-work to tiie summit of the
mountain, and a little beyond, that it may
not roll back again through inexperieuced
aud reckless haudliug.
The Republican party can carry us over
n safety, but the Democratic party would
uin the country at the very first plunge it
mado. Indoed.it has been accused ofauch
elonious intention, and has not protested
ts innocence by so much as a "nay !" Wo
annot aud will not trust it. It was balky
f old, and has learned many new tricks
nstead of forgetting its former shying,
licking and cavorting accomplishments
'herefore, that venerable animal will

is blind of both eyes, spavined, wind

The Republican party must therefore
eep well together, aud strengthen its
umbers from all available sources by
ustworthy recruits. It must prepare, as
smarck has prepared, for tho future iv

moderate enough-only one sixth repreeenta

ia tbe Conservative City Committee there is
no German representation from two of the
largest wards of tbis city, and he thinks it
foolish to leave it to perhaps a chance that
here and there, in the ward meetings, a Ger
man might or might not get the nomination
I r the coveted seat in the Council. He,
therefore, thinks it best to mako the proper
demand be'ore it is too late.
