Ruin Their Watchword.
Thoie nro n set of men in this State
who nro determined to ruin because they
cannot lulotho Demoerntie party. All
men who nro actuated by this bp'nit will
vote for Dicckiniidgo, who has no chance
in tho State, instead of voting for Doug-
ofns by which they might defeat Lincoln.
They Uneaten to keep up their organiza
lions in (hu Stute to the extent of in fututc
nominating State And county tickets, with
hope, us they say, of making 200,000
Democrats submit to them. Thoto men
who nro thus endeavoring to elect Lincoln
can go outright to the enemy as soon ns
they wish; the gicat nrmy of Popular
fioveioi'Mity Democrats will not miss
them. If n handful of disorganizes
think they can make pensioned and pnm
peied slaves of tho gicat Democratic ar
my of Ohio they will discover their er
ror boforo they accomplish their dcsiios.
A lot of men tiied the samogamo in 18-18,
by going for Van Burcn, and only nc"
coniplihhed tjjeir own political ruin.
The contost in Ohio is between Doug
las and Lincoln, this every man knows,
and ho who under this state of affairs pie
tends to bo n Democrat and throws his
vote nwny on Breckinridge will plneo n
spot upon his political character that will
stick to him as long as ho live-, it will be
cast up to his children, and even his grand-
childien will not escape it.
If you think you do not know enough
to know whother yon want slavery in a
rerritory whoro you lcside, or not, bu
sine nnd voto tho Republican ticket; for
the doctiino of the Republican party is
that the people become fools just ns soon
as tliP3' enter n Territory, nnd havo no
lights that anybody is bound to respect.
If you ically feel that you would not
lecome n dolt as soon ns you entered a
l'criitory, and that you would ho com
pelled to judgo whether you wanted slav
ery there or not, voto tho Democintiu tick
et; because tho Domocratic doctrino i'h
that n'mnn's wits nio not bounded by n
geographical line. Wo don't belicvo
now, and probably never shall, that a no
gro becomes nn intellectual giant in a
Punitory and all whilo men become
fools. Wo leave to tho Republican party
an exclusive monopoly of that kind of
choice logic. Tho essential olomont of

a man loses his natural rights ns well ns
