Editors Carolini'An :
I send you ten reasons why T, as
an ultra Democrat, am compelled to
vote for the Bolters' ticket, and trust
they will bo sufnicient for others to do
the same :
1. The elcetion of this ticket will
,utterly rout the Scott, Par ker & Co.'F
Ring, and disclose the infamous
acts of the present adninistration.
2. The electiun of this ticket will
be the inauguration ol a reform, which
will result in uniting a large pm; tio1
of bonest Republi::ans with the Demo.
3. The Demnocratio party is pledg
ed to the party who would inauguraei
4. The Rolters' ticket is the result.
of s;iuch pledge.
5. The Blter's ticket is the best
they could give out of their party,
aud should be accepted by the Demo
6. A nomination by the Deimo-.
eratic party would result in defeat,
aid re-unite the. Republican party atid
thu, destroy thet bope of reform.
7. The Bolter' ticket can he elect
ol if supported by the Democrats.
8. Because as a citizon, I am boun~d
to) use every effort to extrieto the
State from thiuvos and plunderers.

A Clergytnun imuprisonied for an AbH8|ve
A (hrmian paper aates that the
llev. V'on lelstow, a Dotn'zie0 Minister,
Ilhas bee condemnehirld to ai month's im-.
pr 15 isonmen in a Pr'ussiian fortres.<, for
having on the 21st of January last,
in the course of a aermon, used oppro
fuious tpihte against the Jews. The
'min t, de ided t hat such expressions
were intiru<.ly at variance with the
chiaraetor ad position of a minister
of religion, and that fanaticism
wouldJ not be toherated in a coun
try in whiob all citizens, irrespu
Livo of creed, were equal before the
law. If this law were in fo in
Englnsr.d and the United States, we
fear~ that the jailsi of the country
woulai be filled with viotimeq.
