A few months ago the great National
Democratic party was nppaiently falling
to piocos under tho weight of intei-tino
feuds. To careless observers their coun
cils wore seemingly so distracted that
thorough re-union was impossible, and
many predicted that thu old party that
was eo-oxistent with our government, and
that had bravely fought and triumphant
ly cori'iuored all ils enemies from tho tnrice
of tho Revolution to tho enemies of Con
stitutional Liberty that bear the black
flag of Abolitionism, was about to go to
wreck. But, as the great l'resideulial
contest approaches thu apples of discord
are buim; thrown away, the clouds thai
overshadowed ns aro beinij dispelled and
tho soldiers of the great Democratic army
arc dressing their lines to fight for the
principles that they and thoir fathers have
ever so bravely maintained.
Tho Democratic; party stands upon,
contends for and upholds groat cardinal
principles. On some gieat questions there
aro necessarily different constructions,
otid matters of littlo moment to bo sottled.
It is tho settlement of these minor mat
ters that excite Democrats to contention
among themselves. Tho dressing up of
great questions sometimes causes the e
eitemetit to run hiijh, but when these ques
tions are attacked by tho opsilion it is
then that tho less important matters are
dropp.id and Democrat war tho enemy
in-dead of each other.
Democrats in talking about a eniiili
dalo" for an important olliin never ask
whether an enemy or a f.icndof Demo-!
cratie'pi iuciples will ho the stronger can
diilati) they never get into the important
and unenviable position that tho lb-publicans
are now in of din ushii.g whether

resort to no such hoggaily, chiblish policy
ns thi ", but they mid know that h.i is
Democrat from piiu.i.le, and ready and
wiMiiv' to defend and carry out tho gicut
principles of tho party.
It is this tenacity to priti'-iples that
cause Democrat to quarrel among tlieui
selvos; and is this I '.ml unites them when
the war wages hottest and their pi iuciples

is in a deplorable straight when it will

The Bates Movement.
Tho movement of the black republican
party in fovorof Edward Bates ofMissonri
for tho Presidency, led by the New York
Tribune, shows how much more essential
tho men engaged in tho movoruent deem
mere success, with no matter who as a
candidate, than the triumph of principlo
which they havo heretofore hold up as car
dinal. In other words it shows how
much greater importance they attach to
tho possession of tho spoils of power than
to tho establishment of anti-slavery doo
trinos. A principle of the black republi
can party, embraced in the Philadelphia
platlorm, ana held to bo cardinal, is "No
more slave States." From the St. Louis
Democrat, which urges tho nomination of
Mr. Bates at Chicago, we learn as follows:
"But Mr. Bates rejects tho motto, 'No
moro slavo States.' Uo argues that nei
ther public policy, precodent, nor tho Con
stitution authorizes Congress or tho Ex
ocutivo to discriminate between free and
slavo Statos, in thoir application for ad
mission into tlio Union; and in this wo
fully concur with him. Tho policy which
received tlio sanction of tho founders of
tho Republic, and which fras carried out
by Jefferson himself, noon's no defenco,
and may dispense with eulogy."
It is thus soon how completeloly the
New York Tribune stultifies itself in tho
advocacy of Mr. Hates' nominrtion, it
having formerly cried of evey body who
would not put his hand and seal to tho
doctrine of No moro Slave States, "Cruci
fy him! Crucify him!"
What the men of whom the Trihuneia
tho organ want, is power at any cost.
They want it at the cost of an nati-slavo-ry
war, if that will bring it; or of aban
donment of cardinal anti-slavery doctrines
if that will bring it.
Havo such hypocrites and knaves cvor
beforo boen known in tlie history of poli
ties in any country or in any ago?
Tho movement indicates ono thing,
which is n glorious sign of the times; that
those men feel tho necessity of succumbing
to tho consorvativo sontiment of tho coun
try. It was ut about the same time Sew

at Rochester that Bates wroto a letter to

denounced tho slavery agitation as "pos
