Why vve Honor the Parly.
Wo arc suspicions of the-nian who is
continually boasting of his noble
ancestry. To know a man, wo mast
know what ho is, not what.his futlicr
WaR. Noble descent is weil enough in
its place, hut when a man has nothing
bi tter to boast of than his pedigree, be
has reached the bottom, and is little
better than tho snail that looks up with
envy at the stroug-wingod esgbj iu its
lofty flight. It is nobler trrascend than
descend ; to improve on the family stock
rather than deteriorate. To fall back
upon the reputation of our great-great
grandfather to sustain our owu, is little
better than robbing a grave to secure
tlic jewels buried in it. So with parties;
we honor them for what they are, not
what they were iu days gone by. We
see nothing iu Democracy but the
shadow of a great name. When we ask
what it has to commend it to our con
fidence, its Tweeds and Gnrveys and
Waruiouth, with their party plunder
concealed from view, point us to its
honorable past, before slavery corrupted
its honor, or trer.s?n destroyed i'.s
political virtue. Not so with tjae KspuD
lican party ! **'? o glory in its past
achievements, because out of them have
grown its^rcscnt strength and nobility.
What it was yesterday it is to-day, n
liviug, moving power, exertingau?in
fluence for good ; defending the nation
from its enemies at home and abroad ;
protecting tho liberties of the people;
establishing schools for popiflar educa
tion; reaching nit iu ar.u to restrain

A DiiftTcitcu ol* Opinion.
Tl rrc is a slight difference of opinion
between Democrats, North and South.
The hard-shells of th -South insist on
keeping Democracy on tho obi Calhouii
platform, while their bri?thteii of the
North ss strongly insist ou tearing up
the old planks and rcplaoiug tli tin .vith
timber stolen from the Republican ;
reservat ions. To gain a m w I aso ol 1
power Northern Democrats sro willing
to uriko any sacrifice. Tb support the
family pride,and keep up the pol theory
ot "a white, man's government" South
ern Democrats refuse to yield their old
pro-slavery priuci] les. 'I ho Southern i
sentimeut is honoutly stated iu the fol
lowing extract from the Memphis
AvalancJtc, | Dem.):
"In fact the old Democratic party
managers have been forocd by tho inex
urablo logio of events to surrender erory

form is labelod 'Demon .tic,' though in
nil, or nearly all essentials it :s littlo
else thau a paraphrase-of tho Republi
can party platform of tho p >st few years.
As a measure of policy no objection can
be tnailo ; hut to deliberately smash ouo
partisan croed, filch a new one from
one's enemy, ami then insist that, be
cause bearing the old name it is still the
same | Id creed, is to Bpctk mildly, ar
rant hypocrisy. The doctrine held by A.
li. Stephen*, by Robert Toombs, by
JefTerson Davis, enuueiated in the Dent
oeratie platforms of lytil und Iritis, by
Bluutuu Duncan's Bourbon Convention
which nominated Char los O'Cohor for
l'residcut lu?t year, is tho 'ancient Dem
ocratio faith.' It ij the sitnon pure ar
ticle. All other brands are spurious ;

North or South, now ventures to incor
porate it >u a platform, li the oi l par
tisan creed?as is thu f.ict?hasbeeu
utterly abandoned; if to maihtnin a
struggle lor mere existence it has be
come necessary?as is tho fact?to

once lost can never be restored:"
The i'iltsbur", /W. (Dem.) publish
cd in cooler latitude, differs slightly in
opinion from the above extract. It
a ays :
??'1 he Democratic party has been out
of power for twelve years. During all

Panics, like extensive conflagrations, |
ha\c small beginnings. A spuk bus
within it the power to lay in asl.es the
largest city. If fed combustible
tnati rial, it soon becomes . 'ante, before
which ir ii melts and granite crumbles
into dust. So with panics. Words of
suspicion are the sparks that leads to
financial conflagrations. Distrust is
breathed Ir on one to another j iustead
of being quieted by calm advice, it ia
fed by popular excitcm >nt. Those wb >
have least to lose are tho loudest in the'.:
croaking* over eomiug failures. A ru>!i
is made to sacrifl '3 si ? k that is both
profitable aud safe j it is thrown upon
ths market along with fancy und Werth?
h ss stock. A sense of insee irity si izes
tho buyer, and the result is, no sales, or
I ruiir us sacrifices of stock th.it only
neede 1 the rest r i io i of c >u i 1 u :c t ?
be worth more than ever. When a tire
hre: ks out, efforts nie made to uonGuo it
I within its Oiiciual limits. 11 ut the
breaking out of distrust in a community
i is the signal, not for united effort! to
? fiQd it within its legitimate bounds,
! or its suppression, but for a getior.il
rush to Iced thu flumes by gossip, ill
omened prophocy, or groundless rumors
of so.ne in lotiuible calamity. A rum >r
startb. affecting the financial standing of
some bunk official. It matters little
whether it bo true or false ; the whisper
is soon transformed into a storm. A
ludden run is made upon the bauk ;
thou upon other banks, until the whole
eommuuity is iu a ferment. If the
banks have facilities for prompt conver
sion of securities iutu cash, tho storm
may blow over ; but if distrust it wide
spread, money is lucked up or h?ld tor
celt protection, and banks that are
perfectly sound arc driven by sheer
necessity to suspend payment. No
reasonable man can expect a banker to
pay interest on deposits aud keep those
deposits lucked in his safe, ready to be
returned without a niomeut's notice ,
yet men who claim to be reasonable act
at times as if tho thought this to bo the
case, Rinks pay interest upou money,
because they cati loau the money
received fir a higher rate of interest
than they pny. They take securities
for moony loaned. T J convert these
into money requires time ; and those
having deposits should be consider: te
enough to grant it. The best tank in
the country may be forced to .suspend
payment ia the faeo ofnu unexpected
anil unreasonable demand, especially if
popular excitement has so unsettled
values as to rendor the conversion of
securities into cash alwo?t imp issible'.
Panics houlu be stooped at the moment
of their inception. Men of ability and
judgmont should unite to quiot popular
distrust. Conlidcuue should bo strength
ened l?y every legitimate means. Doposi
tors, unless they have good reasohl for
demanding payment^ should assist,
