. The inspired writers have taught
us how beautiful it is for brethren to
dwell together in unity. Three years
ago and more President Grant con
cluded a great State apcr "viih the
declaration "Let us have peace," thus
giving an intimation of the spirit
which would control his Administra
tion. A few weeks since Horace
Greeley, in accepting the nomination
for Presidency, as if also inspired by
the gosjiel of peace, expressed the
same sentiment, in less elegant phrase,
when he said let us "Shake hands
over the bloody chasm." His Liber
al supporters tell us it is time, seven
years from the close of the war for
the Union, to end all strife growing
out of that bloody conflict, and to
adopt measures of conciliation and
concord. All of this is so much in
harmony with the lesons taught by
the Saviour from the Mount, such as
"Blessed are the merciful, for they
shall find mercy ;" "Blessed are the
peacemakers, for they shall see Gon,"
as to hardly fail in charming the
Christian world with American states
manship. THE RErl'BLICAX TXKTV IX FA YOB OF
Following the recommendations of
President Grant, a republican Con
gTess has legislated in the interests of
peace and nnity. Immediately after
the chase of President Johnson's ad
ministration, which through treachery
had became Democratic, the Jlepubli
cans in Congress enacted laws estab
lishing civil and political equality
among all citizens of the Republic;
substituting civil for military govern
ments in all the recently rebellious
States ; admitting every State to its
projer Constitutional representation
in the two Houses of the National
Legislature ; restoring all citizens,
without regard to their national of
fenses, to the right to vote at all elec
tions; restoring ail, except a few
scores of the more flagrant leaders of
the rebellion, to the right to hold of
fice ; and removing all other disabili
ties of every description, notwith
standing their persistent efforts to de
stroy the Union by force of amis;
and suppressing KuKlux and other
lawless bands too powerful fur con
trol by the local authorities.
After this consummation ; after ojv
pression has been overcome; after
violence of the stronger race over the
feeble race has been nieasureably sup
pressed by the enforcement of nation
al laws; after civil government has
been restored in the insurrectionary
States ; after all disabilities have be n
removed, (with the above trivial ex
ceptions;) after all have In-en restor
ed to their property, their homes, and J
peaceful pursuits; aftt-r life and pro
perty have lteeonic well protected ;
after all the industries have again be
come prosperous ; after the markets
have again become almost burdened
with the surplus products of the in
surrectionary districts : Horace Gree
ley bolts from the Republican organ
ization, becomes the standard-bearer
of the Democratic party, and asks to
be elected to the office of President
of the United States on the ground
that he is willing to "shake hands
across the bloody chasm," and desires
WEO NEED TO BE CONCILIATED.
In examination of this subject let
us inquire who are the belligerent par
ties to le conciliated what the dis
cordant elements to be harmonized.
In answering this inquiry we may
state with confidence, they are not
the Republicans of the North on the
one side and the Republicans of the
South on the other who need the in
terposition of Mr. Greeley's friendly
hand to bring them into concord.
Between these two classes of our fellow-citizens
there is perfect harmony
now. No mediation is needed on
They are not the Northern States
on the one side against the Southern
States on the other. For, through
the wise action of the Republican
party, their laws are now homogene
ous. There is now no Mason's and
Dixon's line severing politically the
union of States. The dominating
majority of the people in the twenty
two States heretofore denominated
"Northern States," and also in the
fifteen States heretofore known as
"Southern States," afc Republican :n
sentiment as above stated, are in har
They are not the LHwral Republi
cans on the one side and the Demo
crats on the other, for they manifest
such a rapturous ecstacy of brother
ly love for each other that it is diffi
cult for them to keep up to distinct
organizations. Their national con
ventions adopt the same platform and
nominate the same candidates. And
the affection of their several State
conventions, each for the other, is a
the love of David and Jonathan.
Nor are they the Northern Democ
racy on the one side and the South
ern Democracy on the other. They
were never in more harmonious ac-' rebellion a crime, they can, of course
cord, not even during the recent demand the removal of all disabili
bloody war, when the Northern Dem- ties imposed on that account without
ocrats, as a party, with noble cxcep-a surrender of principle,
tions, diligently strove to effect with The fifth article of the Cincinnati
their ballots what their Southern
brethren bravely fought to accomplish i
with their bullets. j
We conclude, therefore, that the on-!
y possible parties to this conflict
whom Mr. Greeley would have
conciliated by a general handshaking
"over the bloody c hasm ' must le the j
Republican party on the one side and 1
the Democratic party on the other.
DIFFER WITH THE'
DEMOCRATS IN PRINCIPLE.
This conflict between the Republi
can party and the Democratic party
is a conflict of principle, honestly en
tertained by eaeh, which cannot be
terminated by an expression of senti
ment Hand-shakings are certainly
beautiful manifestations of personal
regard by the owners of the extended
dexters. Loving embraces may some
times even cure personal estrange
ments, and often, doubtless, strength
en mutual affection where they do
not produce mutual disgust. Rut
they do not change black into white,
falsehood into truth, nor wrong into
right A conflict of parties over
principles underlying legislation and
administration, is a conflict of reason;
which must go on until the judgment
of the one party yields not to force
or affection, but to the overwhelming
proofs adduced by the other. It is a
conflict which is waged as earnestly
letween personal friends and loving
kinsmen as between enemies and
K EITHER PARTY HAS YET SURRENDER
ED ITS PRINCIPLES.
This difference of the two parties
on principles has not been yielded by
the Democracy, and can not be yield
ed by the Republicans without dan
ger to the Republic.
THE ADOPTION OF TnE CINCINNATI
PLATFORM BY THE DEMOCRACY NOT
Some of the Liberals insist that the
Democratic party became Republi
cans in a body by the adoption of the
Cincinnati piauorm. we nave Here
tofore fclown in these columns the
fallacy of this assertion ; that Mr.
Greeley did not so understand it, nor
the leaders of the Democratic party
admit it ; that these spokesmen for
their friends maintained that neither
the Liberal Republicans had surren
dered the principles of the Republi
can part-, nor the Democrats any
principlc of the Democratic party by
the adoption of this platform. This
would seem to obviate the necessity
of analyzing the document itself to
prove a truth thus authoritatively as
wrted. And yet as much that is said
by the leadingadvocates of Mr. Grec
lov's election, seems to assume the
conversion of the Democracy in the
adoption of this platform, we will ex
amine its articles in the light of the
old dogmas of the Democratic party
ANALYSIS OF THE CINCINNATI PLAT
The leadinjr tenet of the old Dem
ocratic part was a declaration in fa
vor of State eoveroijrutv. including
the riirht of anv State to secede from
the Union. In the second article of
the Cincinnati platform the Democra
cy say, "Wcpledgcourselvesto main
tain the union of these States." Rut
they nowhere assert that in their
opinion a State has not the right to
secede. Rcforc the war the Democ
racy always declared their determina
tion to maintain the Union, but de
nied the constitutional right to main
tain it by force of arms.
When the war began, and all
through the bloody years of its pros
ecution, they declared that "the Na
tional Government had no right to
coerce a State ;" and in the Cincinna
ti platform they do not admit that
this right exists.
Reforc the war they insisted that
slavery was a divine institution
was right and just and proper, and
that emancipation was wrong and
wicked, and would be ruinous to
Iwth whites and blacks. In the first ar
ticle of the Cincinnati platform they
say, "we recognize the equality of at!
men before the law;" and in the second
article pledge themselves to maiutain
"emancipation and enfranchisement"
Rut they do not sav the negroes
I ought to have been made equal before
the law; that the Democracy erred in
opposing the enactment of all these
laws for the liberation and enfran
chisement of the colored people ; nor
do they say that, in their opinion,
either emancipation or enfranchise
ment was right or wise. The most
that can be made out of these decla
rations by the Democratic National
Convention is this : We were com
pelled to submit to the passage of
these laws over our heads by Repub
licans. It is now an accomplished
fact, and wc recognize it; that is, we
g(.0 tliat ft is at.con,pl'i.sl10d. and agree
to submit to it, not intending to or
ganize another rebellion on that ac
coiict. They have heretofore oppos
ed the admission of negro testimony
in the courts ; the right of colored
people to sit on juries, to lear arms,
or to hold office. They denounce it
now among themselves, and in pri
vate. They do not declare in their
platform any of these things to be
riffht, or wise, or expedient, or safe.
They are simply silent on the subject,
or, by implication, agree to submit to
that which they do not think it possi
ble at preseut to change.
They originally insisted that the
United States had no right to enact
laws for the protection of the rights
of person or property within the
limits of the several States, and hence
denounced the Republicans in Con
gress as flagrant violators of the
Constitution for enacting laws for the
punishment of the members of the
Kuklux Klan. They do not in their
platform retract this dogma ; but, on
the other hand, assert in the fourth
article that "local self-goverment
will guard the rights of all citizens
more securely than any centralized
power." They add: "We demand
for the States self-government,
and for the nation a return to
the methods of peace and the consti
tutional limitations of power."
If this means anything it is an as
sertion of the old States rights doc
trines of the Democratic party, and a
demand for a repeal of all United
States laws enacted for the protection
of colored people in the enjoyment of
the rights conferred by the amend
ments to the Constitution, with a view
of relying solely on the' local State
legislation for protection.
The Democracy opposed the enact
ment of all laws imposing punish
ment or disabilities on the rebels.
They held that the rebels had com
mitted no crime by making war on
the Government This Democratic
doctrine is not retracted in the Cin
cinnati platform ; but, on the other
hand, the- demand in the third arti
cle "the immediate and absolute re
moval of all disabilities imposed on
account of the reliellion." The only
disability now existing is the denial
of the rijrht to hold office to a few of
the worst of the relxd leaders. Rut
as the Democrats never considered
platform is a declaration in favor of
civil service reform, which all parties
favor in theory, and which the Re-
publicans arc carrying out in practice.
The sixth article is a demand for
light taxation, which the Democracy
have always favored in platforms,
but never reduced to practice when
they have bad the opportunity.
An seventh article denounces repu-
.!:.:.. . ...I .:t. .1 ... 1.1 I n
"lal1 r nuiu mrj nuuiu uaiuij
I admit to lie in conflict with the former
dogmas of their party.
They demand in the eighth article
a speedy return to specie payment ;
which would wcru to be in hunnonv
with the old hard-money doctrines of
The ninth article is au expression
of gratitude to the soldiers and sail
ors of the republic, which does not
seem to involve any dogma of party
The tenth article is an expression
of opposition to all further grants of
lands to railroads or other corpora
tions, and favoring the use of the
public lauds by actual settlers ; which
is in conflict with the constant habit
ol the Democratic party, when in
power, of making such railroad
grants ; and their former jicrsistent
opposition to the homestead laws. .
The eleventh and last article is an
expression in favor of cultivating
peace with foreign nations, which
does not seem to coutiict witu any
former declaration of principles by
the Democratic party.
This analysis proves what Mr.
Greeley asserted in his speech of ac
ceptance, that the Democratic party
had surrendered none of its old party
dogmas (if we except tbeir ancient
opposition to the homestead bill) by
the adoption of the Cincinnati plat
form. SHALL THE REPUBLICAN PARTY Sl'R
RENDFR TO DEMOCRACY f
What, then, is meant by this de
mand for conciliation? In the light of
the foregoing analysis it can mean
nothing but a demand that the Repub
lican party shall surrender to the
democracy, it can not mean a ces
sation of an armed conflict for this
has long since been ended. It can not
mean the substitution of civil for mil
itary governments in the rebel States;
that has, also, been effected long
since: 1 1 can not mean the removal of
political disabilities, for but little is
left to be done under that head. It
can not mean the enactment of law
for the protection of an oppressed
race in the South, for they have here
tofore been nut on an eouality witu
the most favored race of men. It
can not mean the extension of the na
tional arm to punish criminals too
nowerful for the State authorities, for"
the Kuklux laws have been enacted
and are in full force, securing compar
CONCILIATION MEANS A SURRENDER
TO THE DEMOCRACY.
What is it that Republicans .have
neglected to do which Democrats re
quire to be done in order to secure
iK'rfect liarnionv and absolute fra-
tcrnitv: e are unaule to perceive
anything except a surrender by the
Republicans of their principles and
party organization and the support
of the Democratic nominees for office,
State and National so as to enable
the Democratic party to make and
enforce laws in harmony with thei
party principles. It is believed that
this action by the Republicans would
tend to conciliate the Democracy
that it would soften old asperities;
that it would be a demonstration of
fraternal feeling by the Republican
party which the Democratic party
could not misapprehend, and which
the latter would know how to appro
ciate. Do this and the Democracy
will walk up to the "bloody chasm"
and shake hands with you. The
proposition is simple and plain. The
thing demanded of the Republicans is
easy, provided they have no con
science, or have been living a pro
tracted lie for the past eighteen years.
It is only to abandon tbeir Repub
lican principles and to vote for the
Democratic nominees. This could be
difficult only for honest sincere,
truthful lieople, who believe what
they say, and do what they believe
to be honest and right. All others.
if there arc such in the Republican
party, can comply with this Demo
cratic demand with thegreatest ease.
Rut if it were possible for candid
truthful, honest Republicans to join
the Democratic party and to vote
for the Democratic nominees without
self-debasement, as it seems to us, the
invitation comes late. Had the Dc
mocracy invited the Kcpuiilieans in
mass to unite with them before their
conventions were called, when par-
ticpation in their deliberations by Re-
publicans would have been possible,
the invitation would have had the ap-
pcarance of lairness. Iut to deter
it until they and a few bolters from
the Republics n party had effected a pri
vale arrangement mutually satisfac
torv to themselves, including thenom
ination of a ticket for the two highest
offices in the rift of the people, and
the adoption of a platform of princi
pie to ffovern the incoming- adminis
tration, should their nominees be suc
cessful at the polls, and then invite
the Republicans to vote the ticket
an dswallow the platform, nominated
and prepared by their old political
enemies and treacherous members of
the Republican party only, is an in
suit. It demonstrates that the Dem
ocracy desire to be-conciliated, and
not to conciliate anybody ehe; that
they desire to Ik? considered the spoil
ed children who will stop crying on
the receipt of Fugar-plums. Give
them the fat offices, and they will

they promise to behave like good citi
tens. This is all they mean by con
They Don't Mean It.
How vexing it is to hear some for
eigners talk about the superiority of
foreiirn thintrs. It is almost as vex
ing as to hear a native doing the same
thing; and to hear a native at it is
about the most vexatious, if not dis
gusting, to be morally encountered
1 he American people are not so
fine ; nor their manners so engaging;
nor their tastes so cultivated ; nor
their life so elegant ; nor their coun
try so splendid ; nor is Americanism
so perfectly magnificent as European-
ism. ell, we stay at homes don t
know why not, and they who have
seen the difference assert it so vehe
mently that we very often wonder
aloud when they can afford it they do
not go and live over there. e can
not help thinking that it is a grave in
consistency to praise the perfections
of one admired locality and persist in
livins in misery in another very ob
jectionable one, when it can be helped.
We have-heard the Italian run down
our skies and sunsets ; we have heard
the Pole swear at onr sun ; wc have
heard the Frenchman sneer at our
social manners ; wc have heard the
Englishman express his disgust at our
afmospherc ; we have heard the Ger
man libeling our leer ; and we have
patiently listened to the Irishman take
his daily oath that neither the wo
men nor the potatoes, nor even the
mush or milk, grow so fine here as in
Ireland; and yet wc have seen all
these come here in rags, meagerncss,
and meanness, get rich and fat, visit
I the old country and return, and buy
cemetery lots and stay here. And
wc have come to the conclusion that
Europe and Euroiean life is not by
any means what it is talked up to lie.
The other day we beard this Eur
opean puffing run right into the great
ground. Why, said a German who
was talkinjr obout the barrenness of
this country in vegetation and wood
growth, compared to the land of his
nativity, why, said this German,
you have no fruit here like they have
there; you don't know how to culti
vate it; in Germany they arc so very
careful to encourage the growth of
fruit trees that whenever even a child
there cats a peach or plum they plant
a stone and groic a tree. When this
Eurojean was quickly and sharply
asked where they got their real es
tate for all this arlwri-culture he stam
mered and said he was misunderstood
he didn't mean to be understood
That is it. Whenever you hear a
foreigner who has got rich and stays
in America, dilating upon European
excellencies, or when you hear an
American, who perhaps has never
seen any more of America than the
limits of the village or borongh where
he was born, going into ecstacies
over the superiority he has seen in
EurojH? over America, never imagine
they mean literally what they say;
allow a wide and accommodating dis
count on their assertions ; make up
your mind that if things over the sea
were as they paint them, they would
be using all possible diligence to move
over there, instead of remaining in
this miserable, benighted country to
talk about them.

call it now. When we were a boy they

Hem to Have Seat farm.
If a man has cultivated the habit
of neatness, system, and order, of
putting articles in their proper places,
and picking up things that are lying
round loose, he will have a neat farm.
But thero are many farmers who
have not formed this desirable habit
To such wc would suggest the fol
lowing plan : First, make a resolu
tion that from henceforth you will be
more systematic and orderly ; and
that you may start right, tako a yoke
of cattle or a span of horses, and put
them to a wagon or cart Fasten a
stone boat behind. On the stone
boat put a crowbar, a pick, a hoe, a
spade, an ax, a saw, a brush-hook or
scythe, a hammer, nails, spikes, a few
bolts of different sizes, a monkey
wrench, and such other tools as you
will lie likely to want, and drive along
the side of every fence on the farm.
If you come amiss a piece of board
or a broken rail throw It into the wa
gon. If you find a plow point, a
cultivator tooth, a broken reaper
guard, a horse shoo, an oil can, or an
old hoe, put it on the stone boat ami
bring it home. Stones may be
thrown on and drawn to some con
venient place. If-you come across
auy weeds, mow them down ; if any
brambles or bushes, cut them with a
brush hook or ax. If a board is loose
on the fence put a nail in it. If a
gate sags straighten it up. If there
are any bolts in the gate, see that the
nuts are tight. Take a man or a boy
or both, along with you. You will
find .plenty of work. If there is a
plank bridge across a stream, see that
the sleepers are not rotten. The hot
sun has probably warjted the planks
and they will need another spike or
two. If there are any sticks or weeds
in a ditch, remove them, and throw
out any dirt that may have been
trodden in from the sides by the
cattle or hogs. In this way go over
the whole farm.
Then attend to the barn yards.
Pick up anything that may be lying
around, and Kit it in its proper place.
Boards that arc of any use should be
placed in a pile by themselves under
cover. Those that are useless should
be sawn, and split up into kindling,
to be piled by itself in the wood shed.
If there arc anv loose stones in the
yards, draw them off. Scrajic up all
the scattered manure or d:rt, and
place it in a compact heap where it
will ferment, or draw it at once on to
grass land and spread it.
Go into the garden and .see if there
is any rubbish there that should be re
moved, or anv sticks or pieces of
board or tools to pick up. Possibly
you will find some old barrel staves
or hoops about. Mane Kinunng oi,

and of no further use, had better be

If there are any parts that may be

the castings. Almost everything
sooner or later, comes in useful on a
farm. But unless you have abun

Advice ( Writer.
It is said that the senior
the New York Observer
foundation of his fame as a writer by
Linirln ni-IIOli) U til a It UHi! I if r
suaded to rewrite and condense two
t,r Inree times alter lie nau oiureu n
for publication, ana wnicn, tnus pro
pared, was copied all over
country, the uoserrcr gives
following good advice to writers :
Omit the beginning of your essay.
Most writers, not accustomed to the
press, imagine that a newspaper ar
ticle, like an oration, should have an
exordium, an argument, and conclu
sion. Not at all. The argument is
all that is wanted. That is, state
your case, say your say, and stop.
Do not take time and space to get
into the subject, and more to get out
of it; but come to it instantly, and
stop when you are done.
Dr. GriChi used to say that he
could put the five volumes of a Bible
Commentary into one volume, and
not lose an idea worth retaining. We
believe he could have done it And
so could we.
Be short The time is short, the
world is very fast now, and readers
of newspapers do not want long ar
ticles. Pack your thoughts into
short words, sentences and short
essays. If you never do a great
thing, never do a long thing.
Come to the point If you have
no point, lay down the pen, and do
something else, rather than write. It
is not every one who can write for
edification, and you may not be one
Write the article two or three times
over carefully, making it shorter each
time. Write on one side only of the
paper. Write legibly. Keep a copy
of what you send to the press. Edi
tors do not return manuscripts. We
cannot undertake to, and we so state
every week, but are every week asked
to. It is impossible to make the rea
sons plain to writers ; but it is out of
Be very modest in your estimate of
your own productions, and do not fret
if others csjecin them even less than
f'oartlnax 1st 'horrh.

Bit at church in a pew adjoiiiiug one
in which was a you tiff lady, for whom
lie conceived a Fudtkin and violent
passion, felt desirous of cnterinr into
a courtship on the spot, but the place
not suiting a formal declaration, the
exigency RU'rested the following:
He politely handed his neighbor a bi
ble, open, 'With a pin stuck in the fol
lowing verse : Second Epistle of
John, verse 7 lb "And now I beseech
thee lady.not as though I write a new
commandment unto you, but that
which we had from beginning, that
we love one another." She returned
it with the following : Second ehap
ter of Ruth, 10th verse: "Then phc
fell on her face, and bowed herself to
the ground, and said unto him why
have I grace in thine eyes, that thou
tdiouldst take notice of me, seeing
that I am a stranger?" He returned
the book pointing to the twelfth verse
of the Third Epistle of John having
many things to write with paper and
ink, but I trust to come unto you, and
speak face to face." From the above
interview the marriage took place the
