Conductor and Vice-president,
At a certain period, some six or eight
years ago, the officers of one of our princi
pal railroads had good rcasous for beliov
iug that some of the conductors up >n n
pnrticuh'r section of their roads were in
tho habit of rendering inaccuratr returns
of their receipts frotu "way passengers;'
and as they were unable to fix the defal
cation upon the particular individuals,
IMnkerton wns cuiplovcd to investigate
tho matter, and test tho accuracy of their
suspicions. For tho execution of this
delicate service he selected a mfheicnt
number of his best men to furnish four
for every ear in a train one to be seated
at each door und two iu the oenire of
the car, the latter facing to tho front
and rear, so as to seoevory person who
went iu or out. These men were dircc
ted not to recognize each other, but io
pay their fares, and otherwise deport
themselves like ordinary travelers.
Each one was provided with pencil and
paper, and instructed to keep un aecu
rate record ofovery person that entered
or left .he ears, noting the stations to
and from which they frivole 1. etc , so
ihitt if at the end of the trip th sir nates
were, in accord, it would bj go "id eri
denen* or accuracy. In this manner tho
major was enable 1, in the course of a
few days, to make a dot died icport which

Why n o Hoiior tho Party.
We arc suspicions ofthe-tnan who is
continually boasting of hw noble
ancestry. To know a mnn, we uinst
know what ho is, not what.his fathor
was. Noble descent is well enough in
its place, but when a man has nothing
bettor 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-winged esgle in its
lofty flight. It ia nobler trt<fi8cend than
descend ; to improve on the family stock
rather than deteriorate. To fall back
upon tho reputation of our groat-great
grandlathcr to sustain our owu, is little
hotter than robbing a grave to secure
the jewels buried in it. So With pnrties;
we honor them for ?hat they are, not
what they were in days gone by. We
sec nothing iu Democracy but the
shadow of a great name. When wo ask
what it has to commend it to our con
fidence, its Tweeds and Garveysand
Warmoulh, with thoir party plunder
concealed from view, point us toils
honorable past, before slavery corrupted
it* honor, or trer.s?n destroyed i'.s
political virtue. Not so with tie ftopub
licao party ! V\ ? glory ' iu its past
achievements, because out of them have
crown its^f>rc3cnt strength and nohiflty.
What it was yesterday it is to day, a
living, moving power, excrtin? au in
fluence for good ; defending the nation
from its enemies St homo atul abroad ;
protecting the liberties of tue people;
establishing schools for popular educa
tion ; reaching out its ar.uftto restrain
monopolies from < ucronching. upon the
rights of the people; holding the scales
of justice between capital gpd labor ;.
organizing moans to ro ioviv the pro
duccrs of the West ami thefeonsuniorn
of tho East, and exacting frkm its ser
vants an honest, and ecouot'v&al admin
ietratiou, of the l.overnf^ur.;^*?->r
good and sufficient reasons We honor the
llepublican party. We fake just pride
in its past aobievbients, because they
have given birth to our preBUu^ uspir.i
lions. Wo have taken no st-p back
watd. come of our srand w I Bearers
have proycu false, but tho rank and file
wee true, and loyal hands caught up
the old flag and kept it aflo-.t in t!;o
vaiigu.id of civilization. The noblest
artny will have its deserters, the noblest
party will have its faithless servants,
but neither army nor patty can suffer
as long ns the great body remains true
to the oauso. J he Republican party
reprejeati the progressive ido.isofthe
people, uot tho ambitious designs of it.->
leaders Tho def ection, of a, laader, -thu
dishonesty of au ?Hjoial, the failure of a
representative to reflect the wishes of
his coutitueuts, have no other effect than
to arouse the people to greater caution
IU the selection of their public servants
The great political body is sound ; its
faults ate few, and, when discovered,
easily remedied. A* tho present condi
tion of tho party ia as worthy of com
hicudation as its past, so tho luture will
add. rather than detract, from its glory.
We have much to do; the wot!, so well
accomplishes} .having brought other and
larger duties for the patty to perform :
To disarm ign iranoo, suppress vice, pro
tect |abor encourage immigration, de
velope our wounderful resources, protect
the publ.c credit, ujapt the national cur
redcy to tho wants of the public, and to
maintain justice und secure honesty in
every to? lion of the land and every
biaueb of the (ioVci uuuut. are duties
us imposing as any that ba\e been laid
upon the party io the past.? IZcchanffc
A Difference of opinion.
Tl cro is a slig!it difference of opinion
between Domoorats, North and South.
The hard-shells of th ? South insist on
keeping Democracy on tho old Calboun
platform, while their brethren of the
North as strongly insist ou tearing up
the old planks and replacing thoin with
timber stolen from the Republican
reservations. To gain a new L-uso ol
power Northern Democrats aro willing
to make any sacrifice. To support the
family pride,and keep up the pot theory
oi "a whito man's government" South
ern Democrats refuse to yield their old
i pro-elavcry principles. Tho Southern
sentiment is honustly stated iu the fol
lowing extract from the Memphis
l4In fact the old Democratic party
managen have been forced by the inex
orable logio of events to surrender every
thing but tho name. To this thoy still
cling in meat of the 8tates. Their plat
form is labeled 'Democratic,' though in
all, or nearly all essentials it is little
elsu thau a pnraphraeo of tho Republi
can party platform of the past few years.
As a measure of policy no objection can
be tuado ; but to deliberately smash ?no I
partisau creed, filch a new one from
one's enemy, and then insist thit, be
cause bearing the old name it is still the
same t Id creed, is to speak mildly, ar
rant hypocrisy. The dootrioe held by A.
II. Stephens, by Robert Toombs, by
JefTersou Davis, enunciated in the Dem
ocratic platforms of 1364 and 18?8, by
Uluntoo Duucun's Bourbon Convention
which numinated Charles O'Conor for
President last year, is tho 'uuoient Dem
ocratic faith.' It is the simon puro ar- ,
tiele. All other brands are 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 the fact?has beeu
utterly abaudoned; if to maintain a
jtrugglo for mere existonce it has b>
coiue necessary'?as is tho fact?to
adopt, to so great an extent, tho Repub
lican party platform, why filing to tho
old Democratic name, especially since
that name has become so unpopular as
to bring defeat to any organisation that
bears it? This is answered by a fow
heroics ovor tho past careor of tho eld
party. But of what avail ? They can
not change iniuoritie? to majorities.
Public confidence in a political party
ouee lost, eau never be restored."
Tlie Pittaburg /W, (Dem.) publish
ed in cooler latitude, differs slightly io
opinion from the above extract. It
"Tho Democratic party has been cut
of power for twelve years. During all
that period it has been gaining strength,
and but for the uegre.vnto it would at
this moment hold possession of our
State and Gcnernl Government. Cam
[?lire ftAlr.tcry In'ThTsf'tr."p*e*lV'ti?Ii"ftl it
of its jppoueuts, aud uow greaf; and
what proof it affords of the honest
tenacity of tho eeiid voting port ion of
the party, the rank and file. Tk% Pcni
oorutic party is replete with vitality in
every bouo and sinew and nerve. It
never can die while there remains in
existence even a portion of the Constitu
tion for which it can ontand. When
that glorious old political party dies it
'..ill be proof that the Constitution has
beeu utterly destroyed, and that the
last hope for man's self government has
perished from tho earth."
Panics, like extensive conflagrations,
have small beginnings. A spark has
within it the power to lay in asl.es the
largest city. If fed ly combustible
material, it roon becomes a flame, before
which iron melts and grauitc crumbles
into dust. So with panics. Words of
suspicion are the sparks that leads to
financial conflagrations. Distrust is
breathed from one to another ; instead
of being quictod by calm advice, it is
fed by popular excitement. Those who
have least to lose are tho loudest in their
croaLings over coming failures. A ru-di
is made to sacrifices st.ie.k that is both
profltnblo aud B.ife ; it is thrown upon
tha market along with fancy uud Werth
less stock. A scusa of insecurity seizes
tho buyer, and the result is, no sales, or
ruinous sacrifices of stock that o:i!y
needed the restoration of ooufidouco to
be worth more than ever. When a ?re
bro.-ks out, efforts are made to ooofiue it
within its original limits. Hut the
breaking out of distrust in a community
is the sigonl, not for united eh'oi te to
confine it within its legitimate bounds,
or its suppression, but for a general
rush to feed the flames by gessip, ill
ouieuod prophecy, or groundless rumors
of some indefinable calamity. A rumor
starts, 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 rau is made upon thobauk;
thou upoti other banks, until the whole
community is iu a ferment. If the
bauks have facilities for prompt eonver
siou of securities iuto cash, tho storm
may blow over ; but if distrust is wide
spread, moucy is locked up or held for
oclf protection, aud bauks that are
perfectly souud are driven by sheer
ueccssity to suspend payment. No
reasonable man can expect a banker to
pay interest on deposits aud keep those
deposits locked iu his safe, roady to be
returned without a momeut's notiee ;
yet men who claim to be reasonable act
at times as If tho thought this to bo the
ease. Hunks pay interest upon money,
because they can loan the money
received for a higher rate of interest
than they pay. They take securities
for nionoy loaned. T j convert thoie,
into money requires time; and thos.
having deposits should bo considerate
enough to grant it."" The\_beai jtjuk in
the country may be forced to suspend
payment in the face of an unexpected
and unreasonable domaud, especially if
popular excitement has so unsettled
valusa as to render tho conversion of
securities iuto ca^u.. aluioit i:??po_i:ble.
Panics should be stopped at tho moment
of their inception. Men of ability aud
judgmont should unite to quiet popular
distrust. Confidence should* bo strength
oned by every legitimate mean:). Deposi
tors, uuless thoy havo good reason* for
demanding payment, should asssbj
rather than cripple, tho bank whose
oredit aud standing they depend upon.1
blxcoptional cases Of failure iniy occur
at any timo, but a panic, suoh asroe^nt
ly swept over tho financial centres of
tho country, ought to bo an impossibility.
We trust that the press of the land will
exert its powerful iofiuonoo towards
mahtaiuing a healthy t'.aie of public
Oar Best Met* for Ofllco.
To destroy tho Republican party
because a few dishor?.st men havo crept
into office through its power, would be
as wise as the killing of a healthy indi
vidual because a few boils trouble hi.:;.
The p irty oevar was. more hoalthy than
at present. The few officials that are
proven di.-dionsit are, to ?hoj?roat body
politic, what the spots an the eun are to
the "blaSring orb that gives u; light and
warmth. As long as the masses of tho
people,- who oompoac the party arc hon- j

part itself. Every Republictn eonveu -
tion which has met thus fur has placed
ftBolf oo record as being determined to
iJrive men from office who Tail to prac
tice economy nnd honesty in their public
duties. We shall nover free ourselves
i ntirely from t'no iufiuenco of bad men.
They will c.eop into powor in spite of
C..e proutcat care and watch fulnosi. Wc
cm. however, throw an increased pro
^ctien around the public servioo by a
more thorough examination of the char
t otcr of the men, who present themselves
for our aupport. A good citizen will
s cueially make a good official. This is
a simple rule which, if praeticoJ in tho
selection of candidates, will greatly pro
tect the public interests. Tnquiro into
the private character of tho m m who
wants your vote, and if you find him
honest, industrious, charitabl?, a good
neighbor, and a public spirited cili/.eu,
yyU cau saf'Jy give him your veto and
support. You may run tho risk, even
then, ofbeinr cheated; but tho chances
will be so small that you can well afford
the risk. Dut to expect to Koeure an
honest official, iu the man who never
pays his . debts, who takes advantage of
Iiis neighbor, whose character is staiue 1
by iulemperanco or profanity, is to
pxpect a clear bal tnes sheet in the
other world without payingyour printor's
bill iu this. Nominate your best moo
for ^office and the risk offiuding dis
honesty in high places will bo exceeding
The True Distinction.
Who would think of condemning a
worthy merchant because hedisoovived
in his employ a dishonest olerk ''. Sympa
thy, rather than blatno, would bo ex
tended to him, and every fair minded
man would approve the prompt dismis
sal, aud, if the law was violated, the
speedy puaiahiueut of tho offender. Why,
thou, should our opponouts dcaoance
the Republican party booauso it dis
covers among its thousands ef officials a
few exceptional oasis of dishonesty ?
Tho party repudiates tho acts of dis
honesty, and the people put their stamp
of condemnation, not only upon the
ofience, but upou the offender. No act
of dishonesty, or official guilty of crirou j
uo questionable or iniquitous measures
have ever been condoned or protected by
the Kepublican party. As sooa as
known, an earnest pretest has gone up
against them, and those involved have
bcon called to a strict account . This is
all that cun be done. Individuals are
liable to be deceived. A party can rise
