but as to anything like running
away regularly almcst as soon
as Congress adjourned, it was
not dreamed of. The earlier

A Horrible Tragedy.
The .Homo (Georgia) Commercial
tells tlio following horrible- story
iibout ono of President's Grant's
Rumor brings us the details
of a horrible tragedy that is
said to have occurred in St.
Clair county, Alabama. The
rumor runs that the Tax Col
lector of St. Clair had got to
getliei' n large amount of taxes
and given them to his wife to
keep, remarking as lie did so
that he was coin pel led to take
it trip that would' necessitate
his absence from home for
three or four ' days; He. left,
and she hid the money; About
ten o'clock that' night, a phrty
of men; wearing disguises,
broke in upon the lonely wo
man, and demanded the tax
money. She refused to give
it np or tell where it was.
After attempting in vain to
force her to tell the hiding
place of the treasure, they
searched for it and found it.
After possessing themselves
firmly of the money, they or
dered her to get them some
supper. While she was busy
ing herself with Ibis forced
task, she conceived the idea ol
poisoning them, and thus pre
serving at once the money and
her husband's honor. She
deftly slipped some arsenic in
the coffee she wa3 mixing.
They drank heartily, and fell
dead shortly afterward. She
stripped their disguises off, and
found that two of the villains
were Strangers, but the third
was her husband, who had
taken this means of stealing the
taxes ofthe people. This story
is almost too horrible for cred-ulertce,-
but our informants were
confident lhat the facts were as
they stated them.
We have jssiies, living, vital,
rugged issues confronting us.
For years we have been pa
tiently awaiting the time when
the mischief breeding negro
question could be eliminated
from politics in order that we
might encounter- the monopo
lists, land grabbers and plun
derers on thepc very issues,
never wavering in our confi
dence in complete victory.
By one bold and sagacious
movement the negro element
in the contest is outflanked,
and the interests of white peo
ple are to be fought for. The
Radicals can no longer entrench
themselves behind the bad pas
sions engendered by the war,
but must come into the open
field and defend, if they can,
their imbecile administration,
their iniquitous Corrgress, and
their corrupt monopolies.
Thomas A. Scott, President
of the Union Pacific, Central
Pennsylvania, and a dozen oth
er railroads, has been named
for the Presidency. He has at
least two qualifications rich
enough not to be bribed by
presents, and ncv.brother-in-law
to appoint to office.
The Democratic party, at
the present time, is more thor
oughly united, more active and
hopeful than it has been at any
period since 1852, when, with
a comparatively unknown can
didate wc swept tweuty-seveu
out of thirty-one States.
The Terro Haute (Intl.) Ga
zette, a Republican paper,
speaks its mind very freely as
.to Grant'a renomiuntion. It
"Wo have been a Republi
can as long a3 there has been
a Republican party, and we

nor for him if nominated.

Numerous objections are be
irttr made to the ll idical enndi

the Morgan Raid claims, and

The Democratic party !$' a
law abiding party. It respects
constitutions, obeys laws, re
veres liberty, advocates order,
insists upon economj7, protests
against usurpations and coi-
ruptibnSy and is the guardian
of the rights of the people.
Principles are eternal men are
as shifting sand.
The 14th and 15tli amend
ments were engrafted in the
Constitution against its will
by fraud and usurpation. They
are wrong in principle .and
dangerous in their tendencies
But they have been made parts
of the Constitution. They are
therefore not political issues,
and cannot be until a proposi
tion is submitted to amend or
If the Democratic party is
"dead sucli prtpers as the
Cleveland Herald regard it as
a mighty lively corpse," for
that paper warns its brethren
that "the- campaign in this
State this fall is to be no boy's
play." We think the "count
out' in October will satisfy all
Republicans -that the Herald
was about right.
Radical leaders arid journals
arc just now greatly exercised
to know whether the Demo
cratic party ' "accepts the set
tlement of the warthe Thir
teenth, Fourteenth and Fif
teenth amendments.1' What
matters it whether we accept
them or not ? If they were
legally adopted, they are law,
and- we cannot do else than
submit to them; and if they
were not legally adopted, our
"acceptance'' of them will not
make them legal or binding.
This is the. whole question and
all there is about it, and all
there is about it, and all this
bluster about reviving the
issues of the war is wind signi
