A Froo and Easy Party.
The Union lilraid says "Tho Ie
publican party has a way of its own, a
freo, inde'pendent, gcod natured way
of doing things " We agree with
our contemporary. The Republicai
party has a way of its own.
It has a way of stealing money
that is novel and refreshing to thoso
wiho are not its victims. Money jobs
and spoculatiors and whuliose.o rob
beries on the public treasury have
been per-potrated in the last thirteen
years that were unkinown before. We
accord to the Radicals all the honor
and glory that may have resulted
from the swindling land grants, the
credit vnobilier, the custom house
frauds, the illegal issues of State
bonds and the depreciation cf South
ern securities. All ther.o ways of
swindling the peoplc are Rad ical

Their way of arraying theumselves in
aihparel aind jewelry belonging to
other people was also somnewhat free
and c asy, charaeceristic of thne free
and independent pafrty to which they
owed allegiance. The Radicals have
also a good natured way of saying to
thoir victims "Be quiet, we don't as.k

be satisfied with taiking all you have,"
and when they make us poorer and

that though all is wrong now, all will
