The noblest mon I knowon earth
Are mon whoso hunda are brown with
Who, backed by no ancestral gravea,
Hew down tho woodB, and till the aoil,
And win thereby a prouder famo
Than follows king or warrior's nnme.
Tho working mon! whalc'er their task,
To oarvo the sjtono, or tyoar tho hod
Thoy wear upon their honest brows
Tho royal stamp and seal of God!
And brighter aro their drops of sweat
Than diamonds in a coronet! Jr ,
God bless the noble working men,
Who rear the cities of tho plain;
Who dig the mines, and build the ships,
And drive the commerce of tho main;
God bless thom! for their swarthy hands
Have wrought tho glory of all lands.

"Honor, father, forbids any other."
"Do yon mean to say, sir, that you
are engaged to the girl?"
"Not exactly. I await her deci?
"Then you've proposed?"
::I have, sir.''
"And you are resolved to marry
Miss Cameron, and not Miss Dash?
"If Miss Cameron will^ocept me."
"Very well, sir-very weill This is
your gratitude-this your filial duty,
yon self-willed, ungrateful dog, in
return for the trouble I've had with
voa-th? efforts I've made to secure
for yon the beet match in the coun?

country, whom you throw aside for
the sake of a pale-faced ohit of a

ber! the day on which you marry
Lena Cameron you will cease to be a
son of mine. I'll disown you, I'll
disinherit you, sir, and leavo all I
have to the new Orphan Asylum.
Such was the scene enacting in
'Squire Chester's parlor-a scene fre?
quently presented upon the stage to
sympathizing and delighted crowds
-an irate father, portly, red-faced
and loud-voiced, with hands beneath
coat-tails, a la Pickwiok, and eyes
glaring wrathfully through gold-rim?
med' spectacles upon handsome and
undutiful son, bent upon wedding thc
object of his soul's idolatry against
irate father's wishes. Yet in this in?
stance it was no mere acting, but on
the part of each serious and resolute
To add to the dramatic effect, at
the moment in which the squire's
last words were spoken, a fair, deli?
cate-looking girl, who was about en?
tering the room, catching tho sound
of the angry voice, paused an instant,
with her hand on the door-knob, ae
if hesitating Whether to enter. And
thus it happened that she heard hoi
own hame coupled . with the threat
She turned then, and glided swiftly
up the stairs to her own ropm,
Locking the door, she throw horse!
on a couch, and, burying her face ir
the pillows, remained a long time
quite motionless. She did not weep,
but when she at length arose, bei
face was very, very pale, and hei
sweet blue eyes had a haggard lool
of suffering, painful to witness in one
Seating herself at a table, she drev
toward her a writing-desk, and wroti
"DEAB COUSIN PHILIP: Since ou
interview of yesterday, I hav<
thought tho matter over, and com?
to the conclusion that it will be bes
that we should not marry. Do no
blame me-do not question me
even. I have reasons whioh Icauno
explain; but .oct as I think will bi
best for us both. ' LENA."
"Where is Miss Cameron?" ques
tion Philip of the servant who hand
. ed him the note.
"Gone over to Elmwood, sir, t<
her, aunt, Mrs. Pago. I heard hei
say she should stay there until he
roturn to the city in a few days."
An hour after, Philip Chester wa
on his way to Elmwood. The patl
was lonely, leading through a seques
terod wood, and he was consequent!
a little surprised when, at an abrup
turning, he came suddenly face V
face with a young lady-very tall
very handsome, and attired in a rio
riding-habit and floating plume
Philip lifted his hat respectfully
and would have passed on, but th
lady pausod full iu the path befox
"Excuse me-you are Mr. Ph il i
"And I am Josephine Dashwood.
In bia surprise, he scarcely koo
what to say. "I did not know
was not aware of Miss Dashwood
being in the neighborhood."
"I dare say not. You wero e?
peoting, perhaps, you and yoi
honored father, to behold me for tl
first time at the residence of my r<
spooted nnolo and guardian, Simeo
Walker, Esquire. But you see I wi
too anxious to wait, so I conclude
to run down for a dav or two to Els
wood, on the strength of Mrs. Paf
being an old friend of my mothe
I wanted to see you. Mr. Chester."
"You .do me honor," said Phili]
puzzled in what manner to treat thu)
frank avowal. Tho young lady
meanwhile carelessly played with hor
horse's mane. ?' %r^(La
'.I am glad of this accidental meet?
ing," she resumed, "for I was just
thinking how it would he possible to
oftain a private interview.
"I believe," continued she, coolly,
"that there has been some arrange?
ment made concerning us by those
two old-I"'mean, by your much
honored father and my highly-respec?
table ?nele-a little matrimonial
scheme, if I am not mistaken. Very
kind of them, doubtless, though it
might have been kinder to have left
us to choose for ourselves, and bo
happy iu our own way."
A faint gleam of hope begun to
dawn oh Philip.
"I want to tell you a secret, Mr.
Chester. May I trust you?"
"If you will do mo the honor," be
replied, still coldly.
"Ah, I seo you don't like nie; but
you will after a while. This, then,
is my secjret. I am in love-pray
don't ho alarmed-not with you."
"Thank you!" said he, almost in?
"With a very handsome, very
olever, very worthy and deserving
young man," resumed Miss Dash?
wood, With unmoved seriousness
"but poor. And you are in love with
one equally perfect, but suffering
under the samo stigma."
She looked at him seriously now,
with her dark eyes, and he met the
"Now we understand each other,"
she said, resuming her former tone
and manner; "and now we can act as
seems best to us under the circum?
stances. I want to rebel openly
against those two old fogies-I beg
their pardons-those wise and vener?
able old gentlemen ; but we can ma?
nn go quietly to circumvent them,
and have our own way-can't we?"
"Perhaps you have formed some
plan to that effect?" said Philip, half
amused and half interested.
"You shall hear," she answered.
"I am told that your dear, delightful
father admires 'dashing' ladies; wants
a dashing daughter-in-law and mis?
tress of the establishment. You and
he will dino to-morrow at Elmwood
Dc sure not to disappoint Mrs. Page,
who knows all about it, and takes a
tender and motherly interest in the
affair. We will see whether the old
gentleman is satisfied with his chosen
daughter-in-law. But, whatever oc?
curs, you role, remember, it is to be
perfectly charmed. Will you accept
your part, Mr. Chester?
Half laughing, half wondering, ho
And so they rode on together
through the shadowy wood-path;
Philip Chester liking his companion
far better than ho had previously
thought possible of Miss Dashwood.
Scone second, act first, transports
us to tho drawing-room, where sat
that good lady, in all tho formal dig?
nity of u country dinner-dress, en?
deavoring to entertain some half
dozen guests, of whom 'Squire Ches?
ter was one. Seated near an open
window, he was anxiously awaiting
the appearance of Miss Dashwood,
with a vague hope as to tho effect
which might be thoreby produced
upon his undutiful sou. That self
willed young man louugod near,
cheerfully conversing with a lady,
while Lena Cameron, very pale and
quiet, was bending over a bit of em?
broidery, with finders that trembled
a little, aud eyes that were rarely up?
Suddenly, tho sharp notes of a bu?
gle pierced the ears of tho assembled
"There is Joe!" said Mrs. Page.
"I am glad that she is como, as now
wo can have dinner."
"Joe?" doubtfully inquired ono of
the lady guests.
The squire looked from tho win?
dow, as invited, and beheld a figure
in a man's hat aud coat, as bethought,
and a woman's skirt, dashing full
speed up the avenue toward thc house,
with half a dozen dogs accompany?
ing. Springing unassisted to tho
ground, she proceeded to unloosen
the saddlo and throw it upon the
ground; then walked several times
round the horse, evidently examining
into his condition, and discussing the
Bauio with tho groom, who had now
If 'Squire Chester regarded this
unexpected appearance of his son's
chosen wife with any emotion ol
surprise or disappointment, he, at
least, did not express it. On the
oontrary, he bowed and shook hands
with true old-school gallantry and
oourtesy, as that young lady present?
ly entered the room, followed by two
of the dogs aforesaid, to whom she
whistled an encouragement to enter.
"Oh, my dear, the dogs I" remon?
strated Mrs. Page, piteously. "Wi
are not accustomed to having them
in tho drawing-room."
"Dear me! not have dawgs in th?
drawing-room I Why, I have min?
with me everywhere, and all over th?
houso. Couldn't do without them, 1
doolare. Like dawgs, sir?" she in
?[uirod, with a pretty drawl, of hei
"Vory much-in their propel
place." the old gentleman felt cos
strained to say To which Mi?
Dashwood replied by a just percept!
ble shrug of her graceful shoulders
and then they went in to dinner.
.1 "No turkey, thank you," said she,
"I never take fowl-it's only fit for
invalida and babies; so insipid. I'll
take some ronst beef-rare, if you
pleaee-^-thOugh I prefer steak and
onions." And besprinkling the gory
slice with an abundanco of cayenne
sauce, Miss Dashwood commenced
her repast, whilo the squiro turned
away his eyes, meeting those of Lena
Cameron, his wife's niece, who bad
been regarding these proceedings of
the "dashing" young lady, with an
expression akin to horror, Poor
child, sho wasn't in the secret. But
the squiro thought, as ho looked at
her, how very delicate, and refined,
and lady-like, sho appeared.
Miss Dashwood declined sherry,
but accepted a little port instead
though expressing a preference for
French brandy and water. It wns
quito the "styie" now, sho asserted,
for ladies to prefer brandy. Indeed,
somo even professod a partiality for
Bourbon, though she herself con?
sidered it inferior to brandy iu point
of taste nud real refreshment; and
'Squire Chester felt provoked at the
assiduity with which his son re-filled
tho young lady's glass, and listened
admiringly to all she said.
"Give us some music, Joe," said
Mrs. Page, wheu they were again in
the drawing-room. And the squiro,
who was devoted to musio, looked up
and brightened. It was one of his
favorite anticipations, that of his
son's wife playing to him, and sooth?
ing him in his after-dinner hours
with tho melodies he loved. And now
be came up to the piauo and stood
Miss Dashwood played a rattling
prelude, and then suddenly broke
into a bravura, which caused one old
lady to vacate her seat near the in?
strument. The squire, undaunted,
kept his post, until a hunter's song,
with all the accompaniment of "horn,
hound, and rider-halloo," overcame
even his courtesy, and be, too, re?
"Now, Lena, one of your favorite
songs," said her aunt, quietly; and
tho girl sat down, and in a sweet,
low, and somewhat plaintive voice,
sang "Bonnie Doon" and "Annie
"That is the music that I like,"
remarked 'Squire Cheater to his host?
ess, sollo voce. "Those charming old
.songs aro worth all tho modern fal?
derals that have over been written."
And ho looked thoughtfully at Miss
Dashwood, aud then at Miss Came?
ron. Likewise, ho hearkened to the
discourse now going on between the
former nud his son.
"I do so doat on horses," observed
the young lady. "I couldn't bo hap?
py, under any circumstances, without
at least two of my own-a rider and
a hunter. I delight iu hunting, wher?
ever it is to bo had, and generally,
on that account, pass my summers
ainou? the mountains, though deei
aro becoming very scarce, and wood?
cock almost as much so. I wish wc
had fox-hunting here, ns in England,
I prefer uovels in which fox-hunting
comes in-'Guy Livingston,' for in
stance. What a splendid fellow ht
was! and what a hum-drum country
is ours, where there is hardly any?
thing to amuse one, excopt tho thea?
tres. If I had my own way, I should
bo an actress. I've always had ai
inclination for tho stage, and really
think I should make a good actress
Don't you think so, Mr. Chester?"
"Capital!" responded that youuf
mau, with emphasis, and a pleased
half-amused, half-earnest look, whicl
didn't escapo his watchful sire
though ho might not understand it.
"He's a ninny!" was the menta
reflection of tho latter. "What sor
of a wife would such a woman ninke?'
was bis-rrext involuntary thought
until ib suddenly occurred to him
with something like a shock, tba
this was really, after all, the womal
he had chosen for his son's wife, fo
his daughter-in-law, for the mistresi
of his house and household. Ant
agnin ho looked atLena-very kindb
"You must see my Beelzebub," re
sumed Miss Dashwood, euthusinsti
cally. "Such a charming creature
full of spirit, yet so tractable and af
fectionate, that I assure you, sir,'
addressing tho squire, "he'll wall
into tho breakfast-room and drinl
out of your coffee-cup at table."
This assurance appeared to havi
no particular charm for 'Squire Ches
ter, for ho turned away with vory lit
tie ceremony. Miss Dashwood wen
up stuirs on some errand, and the;
hoard her whistling as she crossei
"Philip," whispered the squire
"I think we'd better bo going."
"Not yet, sir. Miss Dashwood i
about to show me ber new pistols
and then she will teach me a nm
game with cards, and afterward
we're to go to tho stables."
"To the stables, sir, to look at th
Tho squire cast on bim a look c
"Is that-is Miss Dashwood, o
Joe, or whatever she is called, a mai
or a woman?"
"The latter, I presume, sir. It i
the fashion uow-a-days, you know
for dashing young women} like hoi
to adopt a masculine style in genera
It sits well on Miss" joe-don't yo
think so, sir?"
"Miss Joe be --." The old gei
tlomnn recollected himself in timi
but he had seen enough of the dasi
ing Miss Josephine, bia old friend
Simeon Walker's niece, and very
moody was he aa he rode homeward
"Philip," said he," a day o*, two
after, "I don't seo tho use of your
going to Elmwood so of ten,now that
Miss Dashwood is thero."
"Why not, sir? I thought you
would like it."
"Tho truth is, I'm disappointed in
Miss Dashwood. I caa't approve of
such a woman ns a wife for any man
save a horse-dealer or a circus-rider.
Especially, should I not approve of
her as the mistress of this house. I
have no desire to seo my drawing
room turned into a dog-kennel, or
to havo horses walking in and drink?
ing out of ni}' coffee-cup. lu fact,"
said-tho squire, waxing warm, "I
won't have my futuro <iuughter-in-1
law going about the boase whistling,
and odorous of brandy and cigars,
too, I shouldn't wonder. I heard her
say it was the fashion. Ugh!"
Philip was satisfied; tho more so
when, ?i week later, his father ob?
served that littlo Lena would make
as good a wife for him as any lie could
The wedding took place within six
months. Miss Dashwood, herself a
happy bride, wos present, and tho
squire wondered exceedingly at the
great change and improvement
wrought in her by tho influence of

plied "to such payment; and, where tho
obligations of the Government do not
expressly state upon their face, or tho
law under which they wero Issued does

bo paid in thu lawful money of the United

ments for enrolling tho State militia into
national forcos in time of peace; and a

7th. Reform of abuses in tho administra?

tutional liberty and individual rights; and
the maintenance of tho rights ol natural?
ized citizens against the absolute doctrine
of imirtutablo allegiance and tho claims of
foreign powers to punish them for alleged
crimo committed beyond their jurisdic?
In demanding theso measures and re?
forms, wo arraign the radical party for its
disregard of right, and the unparalleled
oppression and tyranny whioh have mark?
ed its career. After tho moat solemn and
unanimous plodgo of both Ho uses oi Con?
gress to prosecute the war exclusively for
tho maintenance of the Government an?
the preservation of the Union, under tho
Constitution, it has repeatedly violated
that moat sacred pledge, under which
alone was rallied that noble volunteer
army, which carried our flag tc victory.
Intdoad of restoring the Union, it ha?, I
BO far as is in its power, dissolved it. and I
subjaoted ten Status, in tlnu?g nf profound
peace, to military despotism and negro
It bis nullified tbero tho right of trial
by jury; it bas abolished the habeas cor?
pus, that most sacred writ of liberty; it
has ovorthrown tho freedom of speech and
I the press; it has substituted arbitrary
; seizures and arrests, and military trials
and secret star-chamber inquisitions for
the constitutional tribunals; it has disre?
garded, in time of peace, tho right of the
people to be freo from searches and geiz
ure?; it has entered tho pout and telegraph
offices, and oven the pnvato rooms of in?
dividuals, ara seized their private papers
and letters, without any spocific charge or
notico of affidavit, as required by tho or?
ganic law; it has converted tho American
capitol into a baatile; it has established a
system of spica and official espionage to
which no constitutional monarchy ot En?
ro?o would now tiaro to resort; it has abo?
lished tho right of appeal on important
constitutional qncstioiis to tho supremo
jurii-dal tribunals, and threatens to cur?
tail or destroy its original jurisdiction,
which is irrevocably vested by tho Consti?
tution, while tho learned Ch lot Justice
has been subjected to the most atrocious
calumnies, merely because he would not
prostitute his high office td tho support of
the false and partfzan charges preferred
against the President, lix corruption and
extravagance have exceeded anything
known in history, and by it? frauds and
monopolies it lias nearly doubled tho bur?
den of the debt cleated by the war. It has
stripped tho President of his constitution?
al power of appointment even of his own
Cabinet. Under its repeated assaults, tho
pillars of tho Government aro rocking on
their baso, and should it succeed in No?
vember next, and inaugurate its President,
wo will meet, as a subjected and conquered
people, amid tho ruins of liberty and the
scattered fragments of tho Constitution;
and we do declare and resolve that, over
since tho people of tho United States
throw off all subjection to tho British
' crown, the privilege and trust of suffrage
have belonged to the several States, and
have been granted, regulated and con?
trolled exclusively by tho political power
of each State respectively, and that any
attempt by Congress, on any pretext what?
ever, to deprive any State of this right, or
1 to interfere with its exercise, is a flagrant
usurpation of power which can find no
warrant in the Constitution; and, if sanc
I t inned by tho people, will subvert our form
of Government, and can only end in a
single centralized and consolidated Go?
vernment, in which tho separate existenco
of the States will bo entirely absorbed, and
an unqualified despotism bo established
in place of a Federal Union of co-equal
States; and that wo regard tho reconstruc?
tion Acts (so-called) of Congress as such
aro usurpations, and unconstitutional, re?
volutionary, and void; that our soldiers
and sailors, who carried the llag of our
country to victory against a most gallant
and determined foe, must ever be grate
lully remembered, and all tho puarantecs
given in their favor must be faithfully car?
ried into execution.
That tho public lands should bo distri?
buted as widely as possible among tho
people, and should bo disposed of either
under the pre-emption of homestead lands,
and sold in reasonable quantities, and to
nono but actual occupants, at tho mini?
um in price established ny the Government.
When grants of the public lands may bo
allowed, necessary for the encouragement
of important public improvements, tho
proceeds <A thc salo of such lands, and not
tho lam. > themselves, should bo so ap?
That tho President of thc United States,
Andrew Johnson, in exercising the power
of his hir.h office in resisting tho aggres?
sions of Congress upon tho constitutional
rights cf the States and the people, is en?
titled to tho gratitude of tho whole Ameri
can people, and in behalf of the Democra?
tic party, wo fonder him our thaukB for his
patriotic efforts in that regard.
Upon thia platform, thc Democratic
party appeal to every patriot, including all
tho conservativo element and all who de?
sire to support the Constitution and re?
store tho Union, forgetting all past differ?
ences of opinion, to unite with us in thc
present great struggle for the liberties of
tho people; and that to all such, to what?
ever party they may have heretofore be?
longed, we extend tho right hand of fel
lowship, and hail all such co-operating
with us as friends and brethren.
