On t he other hand the Ifemocracv start
ed in the canvass without any of these
appliances, without official position and
without money, but with a superabun
dance of confidence in their cause and
candidate, which were worthy of all
confidence, yet over-confidence is not
less n source of weakness than a want
of confidence. Added to theso sources
of strength on the one side and weak
ness on the other, is this element of
strength and weakness attvactins its
like, to-wit, the Republicans were uni
ted and the Democrats were divided.
In New York there was a division
in the Democratic party tliat was deep
and dangerous, and whose moral force
is calculated to bring defeat to any
party. In Virginia there was a divis
ion that threatened destruction to the
party in that State as well ns lent its
baneful iufluence to carry the North
solid against Democracy. When Vir

not be surprised at the overwhelming

it purchased by this suicidal folly. If

Whatever else may follow as a re

Those who said we do not owe the debt
and will not pay it, and lent their vote
and voice to break up their party and
elect Hawkins, may now look out some
other form of words to express their
views in tint subject.
To Our Patrons.
The election is over, and we will
now devote our time and attention to
making the Standard one of the best
papers published in Tennessee. Many
of our campaign subscriptions will now
expire ; we would be pleased to con
tinue the paper to every one of them.
We challenge the country to produce
such a paper for the price. The
Standard will continue to labor for
the ultimate success of the Democratic
pnrty, and at the same time advocate
every interest of all our people. Give
us your aid and encouragement, and
you shall not lose by it.
The Stale" Debt.
Much has been said during the can
vass just ended about "submission" of
the settlement of the debt to the peo
ple. That question has been submit
ted to the people in the constitutional
method, and they have elected their rep
resentatives to express their views in
the Legislature against both repudia
tion nnd ballot-box legislation.
A large majority of iho people of
Tennessee have expressed themselves
against both, and tor a speedy and
prompt settlement of the debt by the
Legislature. We preferred that the
Democrats should settle this matter in
dependently of the Republicans, but
our wishes have not been met. They
were defeated when a portion of the
Democrats boiled their party and went
ofl on a new doctrine, nnd this action
defeated our wishes again on the 2d
inst., at the ballot-box. Now the Re
publicans have the power and the pre
rogative to settlo it not by our vote,
however. If the Democracy had vot

What Shall We Do I
We are defeated nnd demoralized ns
a party in Tennessee, and it is useless
now to quarrel or wrangle over our mis
fortunes, criminating and recrimina
ting each other ns to the cause, Let
us come together in the spirit of candor
and fairness and try to retrieve our
losses, recover our forces and retake
the control of Tennessee from the hands
of the Republicans. It belongs to the
Democracy, nnd we have the votes to
regain it two years hence.
We entered upon this momentous
canvass with the declaration that the
Standard would ever be found bat
tling for .the supremacy of a united
Democracy. This was our frd utter
ance, nnd it was our laxt before the ca-
burnty overwhelmed our State. And
l'f .1 I A.. .
now, ueiore mo smoke ot battle is
cleared away, we reannounce our faith
that a united Democracy is the only
hope for the preservation of our repre
sentative fin in of government. We
have misled no one. Our people have
been deceived, but we are not the de
ceiver. We gave no uncertain sound
in the day of battle, and now, in the
hour of defeat, we call upon all who
desire the government of Tennessee re-
stored to its rightful owners, to fall
into line, forgetting their differences
nnd bickerings, nnd rally once more
under the old lug nnd Democratic
banner, whose folds flont alike over
the graves of the honored of both par
ties in days that are past. Let those
who cannot remain in the ranks of this
party of Whig and Democratic tradi
Hons and doctrines, go with the disor
ganizes and destroyers of our peace ;
but let no true Teunessean forget that
he is the rightful heir of the time-hon
ored doctrines nnd principles of James
C. Jones nnd James K. Polk nnd the
government which they left for us,
A foreign party, with foreign principles,
has, by our division nnd strife, seized

thily held and equitably drawn by
those illustrious patriots nnd their com
peers. Rut it itj only a question of
time; we, their descendants, have tho
power and the numbers to reassert our
rightful possession of the glorious herit

forces of the two old parties. Will we
The Keason Given.
If any man is astonished that the
Democrats did not carry the Demo
cratic States in the North, let him
glance at the map and the history of
tho United States, which show that
Virginia, Tennessee and Arkansas form
a broad licit from the Atlantic to tho
Indian Territory of the most noted
Southern States, and stand ns a van
guard for the solid South, each at the
solemn tribunal of the ballot-box qnes
tinning her own credit nnd threatening
to question the national debt, whic
the constitution of tho United States
says "shall never bo questioned." Then
let that man simply recollect that the
people of the North are human beingi
with like passions as we are, and bis
surprise will quickly subside. Suppo:
it were the other way, and the border
Northern States were voting on meas
urcs that involved our credit niic
money as well ns their own, and we
could stop it by simply casting a ballot
against it, wouldn't we do it ?

Left for Dead, After KiHin:r Two of
His Assailants Excitement Among
Citizens, ami a Posse in Pursuit.
Correspondence to tl i c American.
Gallatin, NoVl, 18S0. During
the past three weeks there has been a
great influx of tramps into this part of
the county, most of them from tho
North on their way to the South to
spend the w inter. People all along the
ino of the railroad complain of their
annojmg presence, but that is not the
worst they have to fear, ns many of
them are desperadoes of the worst class.
It was only this morning that a num
ber of them attacked J. W. Brown,
editor of the Examiner, ns he was pass
inir through South Tunnell on his wav to
this city. Mr. llrown is badly beaten
nnd his recovery is somewhat doubtful.
t appears that he and a man named P.
j. Brigendino were passing through
tho tunnell nt about 11 o'clock this
morning, when they encountered eight
drunken tramps about midway in the
tunnel. The tramps cursed them and
swore they would kill them if they did
not surrender nil their money and val
uables. Instead of complying with
this modest request Mr. Brown pulled
a Smith & Wesson revolver from his
pocket and commenced firing into the
gang. Une ot the tramps was kiiieit
instantly, and one very badly wounded.
Those that were uninjured then sprang
upon Mr. Brown. Bi igendine, seeing
low affairs were going, took to his
leels, leaving Brown alone to battle
with tho tramps. Ho had a desperate
land-to-lmnd fight with them, but was
finally overpowered, nnd, leaving him
for dead, they left, taking with them
all of his valuables, consisting of about
8000 in cash, a hSidsome gold watch
and chain, a plaiii old ring and an
emeral scarf pin.'
Bi igendine came running into Galla
tin nnd gave the alarm, and the citi
zens turned out eu mawc to the scene
of the robbery, where they found Mr.
Brown in an unconscious condition,
with the dead tramp and the wounded
one beside him. Tho wounded tramp,
who refused to give his name, died this
evening at two o'clock, and there is,
therefore, no clue to the other perpe
trators of this outrage.
Mr. Brown was at once removed to
the Examiner office and medical aid
summoned. He so far recovered that
he was removed to his home late this
evening, where he now lies in a critical
condition. The Sheriff and posse are
out scouring the ridge, and are ordered
to arrest every suspicious person.
The people are in a very excited condi
tion, and would, should they be so for
tunate as to catch tho rascals, make
short work of them. A party of citi
zens, armed to the teeth, will start to
Richland station on horseback before
dark to try to find out the perpetrators
of the bloody crime.
Latkr. On visiting Mr. Brown at
about 5:30 this evening I was informed
that the bruises he received from the
difficulty would result tery seriously,
as it is feared he will loose his right
arm, which is very badly mangled.
Declivity of Rivers.
A very slight dcclitity suffice e to
give tho running motion to water.
Three inches per mile in ft. smooth,
straight channel gives a Velocity ef
nbout three miles an hour. The Ganges
which gathers tho waters of the Himala
ya mountains, the loftiest in the world,
is, at 180 miles from its mouth, only
300 feet above the level of the sea,
and to fall the 300 feet in its long
course the water requires more than a
month. The great river Mngdelena,
in South America, running for 1,000
miles between two ridges of the Andes,
falls only 500 foot iu nil that distance.
Above the commencement of the 1000
miles it is seen descending in rapids
and cataracts from the mountains. The
gigantic Uio dc la Plutta has so gentle a
descent to the ocean that, in Haraguay
1.E00 miles from its mouth, large ships
are seen which have sailed ngainst the
current all the way by tho force of the
wind nlone that is to say, which, ou
the beautiful inclined plane of the
stream, have been gradually lifted by
soft wind, and eveti ngainst the cur

of our loftiest spires. Ec.

The Preacher ami the Infidel Praising
Each Other on the Same Platform.
The combined nttraction of Henry
Ward Beechcr and Hubert Ingersol
was enourli to till the Academy of
Music iu Brooklyu last night. Some
poliliuiurui became bo excited over the
double-headed show that after the tick
ets had all been distributed they went
to the Republican headquarters and of
fered $5 apiece for them. Many ladies
were in attendance. When Hubert
Ingersol walked down the stage he was
followed by the Hew Justin D. Fulton,
and in time to start u second round of
applause came Henry Ward Beechcr.
Albert Daggett was called to pre
side, but he gave way to Henry Ward
Heecher, w ho said : "The man who is
to speak to you to-night is not to speak
in a conventicle or church, but he is ouo
who has done valuable things for the
right without variableness or shadow of
turning. Iu the name of common hu
manity and true faith nnd true liberty
I give him the right hand of fellow
ship." Mr. Heccher turned to Mr. Ingersoll,
took his hand, and both bowed, while
the audience applauded the tableau.
Then Mr. Beechcr said that Mr. Inner
soli was the most brilliant speaker of
the English tongue in any laud on the
globe. As underneath the brilliancy
of the flame were solid coals of fire, so
underneath the lambent fire of his wit
there were imperinhable living coals of
Mr. H.ibcrl Ingersoll felt awkward,
apparently, at such a gushing stream of
praise from the Plymouth piwtor, and
as he arose he seemed to meditate re
venge. He worked his lips, wiped the
beads of perspiration off his brow, and
seeming to wink nt the reporters, said:
"The world waited thousands of year s
for Henry Ward Beecber, and the
world will wait a long time for an
other." Then Mr. Ingersoll dashed
off into a speech.
Later on Mr. Ingersoll, turning to
Mr. Beechcr, said : "1 want to thank
you that your intellectual horizon is
large enough, and studded with stars
enough to enable you to grasp t he hand
of a man in the cause of humanity,
however much he disagrees with you."
Upon this there was another tableau
and great cheering. At tho close of
the love feast Mr. lieecher obtained a
vote of thanks for Ingersoll, and In
gersoll got three cheers for Beechcr.
