A good Demosrat is one who adheres
firmly and unwaveringly to the funda
cental prinoiples of tbe party,,as taught
by Jefferson, Jackson, and other ssgea of
this oountry; one who is not oarrioi
iWay from hia party by every pew form
of doctrine that may be put forth by
demagogues ; one who steads firm )n the
faith in timeaof adversity, when danger
threaten and storms shake the country to
ita centre. We would not give a fig lor
a Democrat who is only devoted to the
principles while the parly is prosperous
and in power, nor a rush for one who
can only afford to work for the party
when thore is a prospect of obtaining an
offioe as a reward for his labor, A good
Demoorat works for the benefit of the
whole parly for the country, and not
for telf alone. He is not only true to
hia principles, but bold and, fearless in
proelaiming them.' He does not fear or
falter when politioal antagonists threaten,
nor when persecution coues upon him ;
but like a true soldier be nobly presses
forward in a good cause, resolvad to pre
serve the rights and liberties of the peo
ple, or perish in the attempt. ' ...
A good Demcorat is no hunter after
place or power. He is no ohoeseeker,
andeonBents only to servo, after having,
been made sensible ol tbe tact that bis
fellowoitizens desire him to beoome a
candidate.' He "neither seeks nor de
olines" office, but quietly waits until such
time as he may be honored by a call
from tha people tj serve tbem. lie
