It is probably the most remarkable
combination of political antagonistic ele

stands iu wonderment at the spectacle of
a political organization,, numbering mil
lions, placing a man at its Lead whose
life has been chiefly spent in seeking its
overthrow. lie was a champion against
Democracy when it sought to overthrow
American free industry, and when it
sought to acquire territory in Mexico and
Spain, out of which to create new States
whose corner stones should be that
"Capital shall own its labor "
In former years ho regarded that party
with the keenest distrust, aud declared
his iuteuticn of never having aught to
do with it, as may be learned from the
following one of the many paragraphs
of a similar character from his pen :
"Of that Democracy which robs the
effeminate Mexican of half his broad
domain, and regards with a covetous eye
the last of declining Spaiu's valuable
posses -inns which plants its heels on
the neck of the abject and powerless
negro, and hurls its axe after the flying
form of the plundered, homeless, and
desolate Indian may it be wr Hen on
every grave that I never was a follower,
and lived and died in nothing its debtor."
What a fall from a high aud lofty pur
pose. Since the fall of Eve who was
wooed and beguiled into the eating of
the fruit of death, not because she wu-h
ed to disobey and forsake the path of
virtue and enter the way of corruption,
but because she wished to please her se
ducer, who impressed hei with the belief
that there was no death but pleasure in
what he proposed th'ere has been no
fall like it. The consequences, however,
will not be so direfull as those that fol
lowed the fall of the mother of our race.
The Democratic i nomination for the
Presidency, formerly despised aud for
bidden fruit to Horace, after being
extended to him by the Democ
racy his satan and assured by the
chiefs of the party that there is no death
in it, he takes it, impressed with ihe
belief that there is no wrong or death to
his former position aud views. He will
find his defeat, and in that defeat he will
be spared the humiliating sight of seeing
his country and party humbled and dis
graced. Through his liberal and mngnauimons
nature, the Democracy expect to place
themselves again in power, and to re
trieve for themselves what they lost in
their eff.irts to destroy free Government.
They see in the man who believes that
there is no bell for the punishment of the
wicked, who believes in the abolition of
all capital punishment laws, and who in
the kindness of his heart declared that
the confinement of more than a few days
of the Chief of the llebel Government
in prison, was wronj, aud willingly went
his secuiity for his release, is the char
acter out of whom they can mould a
chief to pave the way for future man
agetneut in the Government. Iu these
lenient qualities, so seldom met with,
and so utterly unfitted for practical
operation in the present state of society,
the Democracy see just the character to
secure for themselves the most advanta
geous position, if they can but get Lim
placed at the head of the Government
With the aid of Republican votes they
expect to do it.
Place Horace Greeley at the head of
the nation, with the Democratic party as
his counsel and patron which they
would be and bis magnanimity will in
duce him to submit to auy and all Gov
ernmental proposals that are made that
do not actually savor of oppression. He
will agree to a Democratic management
of the money affairs of the nation, to the
payment of the rebel war debt, to dam
ages done by the passage of the national
armies through the south, and he will
agree to the payment for the slaves set free,
aud it would not be beyond the magna
nimity of his nature to agree to the pay
ment of bounty to rebel Eoldiers. This
may seem like an impossibility, but cer
tainly not more impossible than seemed
the nomination of Horace Greeley by
the Democracy fur the Presidency, five
years ago. The safest and surest way is
to elect Grant and keep Greeley "and his
millenial notions out of the White House.
The people will not sustain the fall.

Leen batched br others, the printing bill
for Juniata county, passed at the last sea
sion of the Legislature. One was D. M
Crawford, our Senator, who always looks
wise but says little, except on occasions
when appropriation bil's are to bepasf-ed
when he is said to grow eloquent,
especially if there has been a little fire
to kindle nn bis imagination. Whether
the passage of the printing bill required
the aid of eloquent speeches is not known
to me. There were none reported in the
record that I know of. The other is Dr
Jacob V. Mitchell, who bails from the
neighboring county of Mifflin, whpm the
peoplo of Miffiin and Juniata court
ties were unfortunate enough to Lave to
misrepresent them in the Legislature.
He is a genial fellow, aud can tell some
stale yams when around electioneering
very well, and hknself smile largely
when done, if nobody else sees the joke.
He is a smart fellow and an able legis
lator. He doses it on the Allopathic
plan. He did not succeed, however, as
well as his professional brother and co-
laborer, in the work of rcfoi'mia the
laws to govern his constituents. An ob

"Bridge Bill" had been passed for Mif.
flit) county, which this distinguished rep
resentative ha'l, as rumor has it, proniis
ed the good people of bis county to have
repealed. But they were doomed to
disappointment. Like Rorher with the
printing bill somebody went to see bit
aud the bill old ut pass that is it was
not repealed, and I see by the papers
that the Commissioners have been fined
S5 00 a Lead for not building the bridge
another allopathic dose. Homeopathy
is not popular now-a days, it seems. This
much for the parlies who pissed the bill
Now cannot some man be selected to
represent us who will repeal this bill, and
either let the law be as it was in former
times, or have the county printing let by
contract aud other legal advertisements
to bo published where the parties may
desire them to be published. Juniata
couuty Las been doubly taxed. Enough
money Las been squandered in the last
ten years together with what the citi
zens of Mifflin promised to raise to
build a new Court House, and I have uo
doubt that if the law' was so changed as
to have all the county priming done by
contract by lowest bidder that iu the
coutse of teu years more Juniata County
could boast of a new and comfortable
Conrt House, and the Treasury bo not
one cent poorer, provided voir citizens
would raise the sum promised when the
question was before the peoplu Let
the people act in this matter. Let our
County Conventions take action iu regard
to it. It should be. discussed there. It
will not do to say, as no doubt some will
say, that it will en Jaugi-r the success of
Candidates, and that they should not be
trammelled by any such questions
Such arguments are too thin. The is
sue should be fairly brought before the
people, and if the majority are willing to
be thus taxed, then of course the minor
ity must stand it.
