Thi 'State Register' is in faror of Hon.
Shelby M. Cullom, Radical, for speaker of
the house of representatives of the general
assembly of this state. This fact is being
commented on to prove that tbe 'Register'
has "gone back" on the Democratic party,
but the charge is not true. The 'Register'
Is for Cullom because Cullom is a Radical
whokn ows something about tbe duties of
a presiding officer. The 'Register' has not
gone back on the Democratic party. Tbe
'Register' would scorn to do so. The 'Reg
ister' will stick totbe last plank of the
grand old Democratic party, and sink, if
sink it must, with that plank, shouting the
battle cry of freedom.
J Dixit William H. Green, of this city,
ha written a Utter addressed to the ed
itor of the Metropolis Times.' The pur
pose of the communication was to annihil
ate a man by the name of J. C. Willis, who
is collector of United States revenuo in
this vicinity. The Judge is a better law
yer than writer, but he believes he is a
better writer than lawyer, and he knows
he is a good lawyer. In the communica
tion referred to, tbe Judge has combined
his lawyerly abilities with hie writing
talent, and has produced what he intended
to a Willis annlhilator. Ho has left
nolhlCff of J. n nrtf wnn .1 r.
" u"ifju men
Uoned grease .pot. And tj controversy
was all about tobacco.. u an ,btrufe
subject, whjjfc havo j got
ln& our mouth, but never could get
through our head.
W are not alone in our glory. Other
Democratic papers, seeing the handwrit
ing on the wall, bare had the courage to
translate the word to the Democratic
leaders, and bare, as a consequence, been
fearfully abused. Tho Cincinnati 'Knqui-
rer had the wisdom roquisite to an as
umption of The Rullxtin's present
sagacious position In reference to tho po
litical situation. Wo were not therefore
urprUed to And the following paragraph
in a late Issue of that journal :
There 1 some anxiety manifesting itself
r r T'""ul nou weii-mcauinir peo
ple to know whether this Is a Democratic
paper. So far as we know, it is. We stand
upon the platiorm adopted by the party in
national convention In Baltimore As for
the future, we propose to advocate such
metlioda and measures as will tend to make
those principles effective and permanent.
The 'Enquirer' may be comforted. Til
Bulletin approves it course, and will
stand by It through thick and thin, if it
don't go back to tbe old fleshpoUJ of the
putrid Bourbonisra of the Democratic
party.' This we are suro is an assurance
which should nerve our cotemporary to go
on with iU fight in favor of the emancipa
tion of tbe Democratic rank and file from
the domination of the mistake-making
leaders. If, howevor, it is not, we should
like to know what would nervo tho En
quirer.' THE SAME SUDJECT.
The Bloomington ' Liberal,' in an arti
cle on Future Partif ," wisely condemns
those Democratic politicians who "are
'anxious about the course tho administra
tion Intends to pursue, and are even an
ticipating Its policy in order to have
something to combat." The 'Liberal
a TJ''fi' e,ectln 'ems to have fully en
dorsed he prehent admlnltratIon,ami noth
lng would seem more like foolishness than
to continue a controversy about whVr ii.

We may be mistaken, but we are of the
opinion an opinion held fast, as one of
our Bourbon friends suggested yesterday,
by a large anchor of hope that President
Grant will, in bis tecond term, be much
less than a Radical, if not altogether a
" Democrat." If ho should be, mark how
loudly wo shall applaud bimt If he
should not be, mark how promptly we
shall condemn him I This, in brief, Is the
sum and substanco of our political plat
form. Tbif, our good friends hereabout
declare, is treason to '.the Democracy.
Consequently, with many regrets and a
number of tears, wo are compelled to say,
we don't care; we ato there, treason or no
If wa could all be calm, wo might
possibly see this thing in tho same light ;
but we can't be calm. That's tbe trouble.
The great men who lead the Democratic
partyLord bless us, but that was a tough
old party 1 tho leadors won't be calm.
They try to, but how can they I But If
we comW all be calm, Tbe Bulletin
thinks we would all seo that now is tbe
time for the opposition to stand still,
ready to take advantage at the flood of the
tide in future public affairs which will
lead on to fortune. To do this it may be
necessary to uphold Grant's arms. We
believe it will be. There was a time
when, if we had said Democrats would be
in duty bound to stand by President
Johnson, we would have been, as now,
read out of the Democratic party, "bag and
baggage." But the time came, and
then to not proclaim Mr. Johnson the
very quintessence of patriotism became
an omission of duty treasonable to Dem
ocratic principles. Now, if Grant should
do right, why shouldn't the men who have
been fighting in the Democratic party for
the right, applaud him? There is no
reason. Duty would require them to do
so. If he don't, on with tne nail oi oppo
sition, and no rest till morn no rest until
the wicked enemies of correct principles
cease from troubling and the weary wagers
of the battle of the spoils are at rest t
