Conductor und VIce-president;
Ata certain period, some six or eight
years ago, the officers ofouo of our prinei
pal railroads had good reasons for beliov
itlg that sonic ol the conductors up in a
particular section of their roadd were iu
tho habit of reudoring inaccuratr returns
. of thoir receipts from "way passengers;'
and as they wero unable to fix the defal
cation upon the particular individuals.
Cinkcrton was euiploved to investigate
the matter, and test the accuracy of th ir
suspicions. Cor the execution of this
delicate service ho selected a sufficient
number of his best, men to furnish four
for every ear in n train one to be seated
at each door mid two in the centre of
the car, the latter facing to tho front
and rear, so as to see every person who
vent in or out. These men were direc
ted not to recognize each othir, but to
pay their fares, and otherwise deport
themselves like ordinary travelers.
Each one was provided with pencil and
paper, and instructed to keep an a ecu
rate record ofevcry parson that entered
1 or left the. cars, noting the stations to
ami from which they traveled, etc , so
tha: if at the end of the trip th fir n itos
were iu accor 1, it would b>i good eiri
dence of accuracy. In this manner tho
mnjor was enable I, in tho course of a
few days, to make a dot Med icport which

Wliy wo Honor the Party.
We arc suspicious of the-man who in
continually boasting of Li* noble
ancestry. To know a man, wo most
know what ho is, not what, his futhor
was. Noble descent is well enough in
its place, but when u man has nothiog
better to boast of than his pedigree, he
has reached the bottom, and is little
better than tho snail that looks up with
envy at the strong-wingod eagle in its
lofty flight. It id nobler trffnsccnd than
descend ; to improve on the family stock
rather than deteriorate. To fall back
upon tho reputation of our; great-great*
grandfather to sustain our owu, js little
bettor than robbing a grave to secure
tlie jewels buried in it. So with parties;
we honor them for what they are, not
what they were in days gone by. We
see nothing iu Democracy hut the
shadow of a great name. Wiien we ask
w hat it has to commend it to our con
Bdcnce, its Tweeds and Garvcysand
Warmouth, with their party plunder
concealed from view, point us toils
houorable past, before slavery corrupted
its honor, or trer.son destroyed i'.s
political virtue. Not so with 'ate Repub
lican party ! N o glory in its pa?t
achievements, because out of them have
grown it present strength and nobility.
What it was yesterday it is to day, a
living, moving power, excrtin s. ati iu

from its enemies at home and abroad ;
protecting tho liberties of the people;
establishing schools for popular educa
tion; reaching out its ar.trjto restrain
monopolies from < ucroachin^npou tho
rights of the people; holding^ho scales
of justice between capital and labor ;

iu its past achieTmcnts, because tlo Y
havo given birth to our preseu! aspira
tions. We havo taken no ,-t p back
-.?.aid. Sotho of our srnndnd boarcrs
have proveu false, but the r.mk and file
wee true, and loyal bands caught up
the old flag and kept it uflo ,t in the
var.gu :d ul civilization. The noblest
army will have its deserters, the noblest
party will have its fuithlc?9 servants,
but neither army nor party can suffer
as long ns the great body remains true
to the oauso. i he Republican partv
represents* the progressive Ideas >f the
people, uot tho ambitious designs of it.s
leaders Tho defection of a leader, the
dishonesty of an official, the failure of a

to arouse the people tj greater caution

The great political body is sound ; its

A IHfffTCUCt) of Opinion.
Tl ere is a slight difference of opinion
between Doinoorais, North and South.
The hard-shells of tho South insist on
keeping Democracy on tho old Calhoun
platform, while their biothrcu of tho
North as strongly in-ist ou ten ring up
the old planks and replacing thorn with
timber stolen from the Republican
reservations. To gain a new 1 -a^o o!
power Northern Democrats are willing
to make any sacrifice. To support the
family pride,and keep up the pet theory
ot "a white muu's government" South
ern Democrats refuse to yield their old
pro-elavery principles. The Southern
sentiment is honestly Mated in the fol
lowing extract from the Memphis
"In fact the old Democratic party
managers havo been foroed by tho inex
orable logio of events to surrender c rory
thiug but tho Dame. To this thoy still
cling in me?t ot the States. Their plat
form is labeled 'Democratic,'though in
all, or nearly all essentials it is little
else thau a paraphraso of tho Republi
can party platform of the past few years.
Ab a measure of policy no objection can
be ruade ; but to deliberately smash ono
partisan creed, filch a new ono from
one's enemy, and theu insist that, bo
cause bearing the old name it is still the
same old creed, is to sprak mildly, ar
rant hypocrisy. Tho doctrine held by A.
II. Stephens, by Robert Toombs, by
Jefferson Davis, eouueiuted in tho Dent
QCrutio platforms of 18Gd and 1868, by
Blautuu Duncan's Bourbon Convention
which nominated Charles U'Conor for
President lukt year, is tho 'ancient Dem
ocratic faith.' It ii the si men pure ar
ticle. All other brands aro spurious ;
yet not a 'Democratic' Convention,
North or South, now ventures to incor
porate it iu a platform. If the old par
tisan creed?as is tho fact?has been
utterly abaudoned ; if to maintain a
itrugglo lor mere cxistonce it has be
come necessary?as is tho fact?to
adopt, to so great an extent, tho Repub
lican party platform, why ?3?nt? to the
old Democratic name, especially since
that name has become so unpopular as
to bring defeat to any organization that
bears it? This is answered by a low
heroics ovur tho past career of tho old
party. But of what avail ? They can
not change minorities to majorities.
Public confidence in a political party
ouee lust cau never bo restored."
Tho l'ittsburg i'ast, (Dem.) publish
ed in cooler latitude, differs slightly ic
opinion from the above extract. It
"Tho Democratic party has been out
of power for twoive years. During all
that period it has been gaining strength ,
and but for the uegro vote it wouid at
this moment hold possession of our
i t ate und General Government. Cetn

bocu utterly destroyed, und that the

perished from tho earth."
Panics, like extensive conflagrations,
have small beginnings. A sp?rk has
within it the power to lay in asl.es the
largest city. If fed by combustible
material, it roen becomes a flamo, before
whieh iron melts and granite crumble-,
into dust. So with panics. Words of
suspicion are the sparks that leads to
financial conflagrations. Distrust is
brcalhtd from one to another ; instead
of being quieted by calm advice, it is
fed by popular excitement. Those who
have lcasd to lose are tho loudest in their
eroskings over coming failures. A ru>li
is made to sacrifi '9 st >ek that is both
profitable aud safe; it is thrown upon
the market along with fancy and worth
less stock. A sensa of insecurity seizes
tho buyer, and the result is, no sales, or
ruinous sacrifices of stock that only
neede 1 tho restoration of coufid ueo tu
be worth more than ever. When a fire
1 bro: ks out, efforts are tnuJo to oonfiue it
within its original limits. But the
breaking out of distrust in a community
ia the signal, not for united efforts to
ConfiQd it within it? legitimate bounds,
or its suppression, but for a general
rush to !ct.d the flames by gossip, ill
omeiiod prophecy, or groundless rumors
of some iu letiuiblo calamity. A rum >r
Maria, affecting the financial standing of
some bank official. It matters little
whether it bo true or false ; the whisper
is soon transformed into a storm. A
sudden ruti is mado upon tho bauk ;
then upon other banks, tint il the whole
eommuuity is iu a ferment. If the
hanks have facilities for prompt conver
sion of securities iuto caah, tho storm
itiuy blow ovor ; but if distrust is wide
spread, money is locked up or bald for
cell protection, and banks that are
perfectly sound aro driven by sheer
necessity to suspend payment. No
reasonable man can expect a banker to
p*y interest on deposits aud keep those
deposits locked tu his safo, ready to be
returned without a moment's notioe:
yet men who claim to be reasonable act
at times as if the thought this to bo the
case. Ranks pay interest upon money,
because they can loau the money
received for a higher ra;e of iutcrest
than they pay. They tako securities
for nionoy loaned. T) onYort these
into money refjuiros time; and thost;
having deposits should be considerate
euough la grant it. The best bank in
the country may be forced to suspend
payment in the fseo of au unexpected
and unreasonable domnnd, '.specially if
popular excitement has so unsettled
values as to render the conversion of
.sec-.rities into cash almost impossible.
Panics should be stopped at the moment
of their inception. Men of ability aud
judgmont should unite to quiet popular
distrust. Confidence should b<i strength-'
oned by every legitimate means. Deposi
tors, unless they havo good reason! for
domuuding payniout, should assist,
rather th in ciipplo, the hank whose
oredit and standing they depend upon,
wxc'eptional cases of failure miy occur
at any time, but a panic, suoh asrecjnt

tho country, ought to be an impossibility'.

To destroy the Republican party
becattso a few dishonest men havo crept
into office through its power, would be
as wise as tho killing of a healthy indi
vidual because a few boils trouble him.
The party never was more hoalthy than
at present. The few officials that are
proven di>hone->t are, to the great body

a simple rule which, if practical iu the

then, ofbein.1 cheated; but the chance's
will be so small that you can well afford

covers among its thousands of officials a
few exceptional cases of dishonesty ?
Tho party repudiates tho acts of dis
honesty, nud tho people put their stamp
of condemnation, not only upon the

of dishonesty, or official guilty of crime ;
no questionable or iniquitous measures
have ever been condoned or protected by
the Republican party. As sooa as

against them, aud those involved have
bcou called to a strict account . This is
all that can be done. Individuals are
