The Democratic party, and the Deraoi
cratio alone, is responsible fr the war.
. This is a stale slandor, and long since
ceased to " have any effect with sensible
men. The man who stys tha Democratio
parly is responsible for the war is either
an ignorant fool or a deliberato Ial&ifie,
and he who believes v. is a poor, cisora
bio dupe, The Democratic party is clear
of all responsibility for the late bloody
and unnecessary oivil war. That gigan
tie crusade for Puritan ideas and New
England fanaticism, was forced upon tbe
conn try by the Clack Republican party,
and every life sacrificed, every drop ot
blood shed, every dollar squandered,
every aot of rapine, cruelly sod oppres
sion perpetrated, is chsreeable ' to that
reckless and destructive party. Its track
is marked with blood, plunder and deso
lation. . We have to-day a dismembered
Government, a prostrato Constitution, i
bankrupt people, and a toiutsry despo
tism, witn negro equality. - Ihose are
some of the fruits of Mongrel rule. Tho
Radicals bave falsified every principle
and pledge announced by thorn, from tho
beginning of tbe war to its close, and
perverted the power and energies of tbe
Government : to evil ends. Disunion,
Debauobery and Debt are the jcgacics
they have loft to the nation. Yet in tbe
very face of these irreeistablo facts, these
men bave the effrontery to cot themselves
op as loyal Union men, With as muoh
consistency tbe Prinoo of Evil might
claim to be an angel of mercy. ' They
are the real disunionistp, and must be to
regarded by every intelligent, patriotio

should thus be prevented from receiving

of tbe "Lord" of tho city, that inasmuch

many and valuable improvements in tho
city, and among which was' the Furnace

and stupendous plan, had made a failure,
and the thing refusing to work : to. the
full satisfaction of tho Ruler, that he
abandoned it d3 a 'worthless piece of

13 And the "Lord" seeing this in tho
hearts of. his subjects, and He perceiving
tbat they were yet indtpendent : of hiit
power, he resolves to bring about such
measures as will compel them to trade at
their own furnishing store, for it gnevoth

himself, how that this matter may beully
brought about, He oalleth all of his pat

to them, they reasoned one with soother,
and said: This persdventure may be

the means resorted to, is not muoh better
than swindling ; but even ! that has be
