THE ST. LOUIS REPUBLICAN
DEPARTURE MOVEMENT.
Thts movement has created consid
erable stir amongst politicians, and is
bringing out a ereat deal ol discussion
in the newspapers. The Republican,
in a recent issue, speaks of the matter
ss follows:
Our suggestion of a passive poli
cy on lb part of the Democracy in
toe Presidential contest of 1872, has
had and is having the effect we in
tended. It bas provoked an earn
est and interesting discussion of the
subject in all its bearings by the
opposition to President Grant's ad
ministration. . Tbis discussion will
?o to ti e bottoiu of our political
recondition. It wdi - reveal the
whoU truth about that condi
tion as disclosed lrom a point of
vicwabeve tbe present parlies, and
whatever tbe result of this calm and
ispusdionate review muy be. u can
not but be sV.ulary.
At the very threshold of lbs dis
cussion stands tbe fact that Presi-
ent Grant is a disturbing element
in the Republican parly, and that
Urge and influent:! element in
that party who will certainly either
vote lor him as againet a Demo
cratic nominee, or not - vole at all,
ould wek-ome an opportunity to
oppose and defeat tit nr., it they
could uo so without placing their
life lotz opuononts in power. As
bolweeo Grant and a Democratic
nominee, tbey would reluctantly
opport Grant. As between Grant
and any other possible Republican
candidate, they would gladly sup
port the latter, lhia malcontent-
unli-Grant element of Republican
ism is no HidigniUcnnt power. It
is represented by Senators Schurz,
f Missouri, bttDiDvr and Wilson, ol
Massachusetts, Fenton, of New
York, West, of Louisiana, Horace
Groclyand Cassias il. Clay, Gov
Geary, of Pennsylvania, Cox and
Noyes, of Ohio, Trumbull and Lo
gan, of Illinois, the Chicago Tri
bune, tho Cincinnati Commercial
the New York Tribune, and the
New York Evening Post. In Has
sachnsells, New York, and Ohio it
embodies the better part of the Re
publican party ; In Missouri, and,
ndeeu. the wuolo W est, it embraces
tha Germans and the liberals who
euipoit--d Brown in 1870, SDd if it
doei not inciudo the better part ol
Republican parly in Louisiana, Al
abamn, and Arkansas, it embraces
tvn there a portion which, in
point of numbers, at loast, discon
touted with the iuidj proscrip
tion ot tne JttepuDJican party, a
lurmed at its progress toward cen'
tralizution, and dissatisfied with the
personal usurpations of tbo Prcsi
dent, has not been able, thus far, to
asEert its independence; it is held
in Ibruildcru by a power which
gives it tne narrow cnoice ot sup
porting Grant, or "going over to tho
Democracy; and while an honest
Doom-ratio part:sao would easily
solve the difficulty for them by tell
ing tbem to cast their lortunes with
the Democracy, it should bo re
membered that au honest Republi
can muy not nna it so easy to ac
cept such u solution. Party alleg
lauce is a powenui sentiment in
this country ; and while independ
ent tna conscientious men are ever
ready to oppose the policy of their
own party, tbey do not readily es
pouse tho policy oi its opponent.
A passive altitude by the Deni
ocracy tn tne next Presidential cam
puign would ti 7e to Lib-ral Kcpub
licaup tbe ireet.om tvbicu tbey can
not secute for themso'.vcs. They
could assort their own poitcy, pro
claim tbeir own platform, and nom
mate thir own candidt, without
any violation of their pnr!y oblign-
tious ; and in appealing lo tho peo
pie lor support, they would have an
immense nigral aJ vriitiiv'o over the
administration party, whose ad
verso appeal would be rieycv.aarily
limited to the Presidents partisans
It, is true, this passive attitude
culd invulvo a sacrifice on the
part of the Democracy which tbey
audit find it hard to make. Deni
ocrala have a rizht to say that,
their pritiCtplesaro worth onytlung.
Ihey are worth struggling for, even
in the face of deteat; and to with
draw, as a patty, from a great na
1 1 opal contest, might argue a lack
of t!ovotioo to their prindt'iles, and
willini? to see their party disband
But in answer to this may be ad
duced the universal conviction a'
rmng Democrats that our constitu
tional polity can not surrive a re
election of Grant and the four years
of increased centralization that
would follow. It is tbe Democrats
opposition and the fear of a possible
Democratic Inumpn mat causa tne
administration party to resolve that
lbo Democratic party shall not trt
umrb. and induce it to resort to
violent leeislatun and still more
violent acts to prevent such an e
vent. As ion z as the adminietra'
tion party id confronted with
Democratic opposition which is
strong enough lo alarm it, so long
will it resort to near schemes ofun
consliulioual lcgislntoc, and so
long will it uphold tbe Executive
in violent measures of interference
10 muintniu itself in powor, and
thus, even though undeniable facts
prove that the Democracy are
majority of the people, there is no
assurance that tho party in power
would yiold place to tbem. Undor
these circumstances mtv not th.s
highest patriotism demand of- th
Democracy the sacrifice ndiooted
Tbev would waive the possibility ot
a Democratic triumph, indeed, but
they would securo, in exchange,
the almost certainty of a Radica
Rerjablican defeat. They would
save the constitution by overthrow
iriz those who constantly violate i
Tbey would preserve to the Stales
their right of local self-government,
by overwhelming the party of cen
tralisation. They would release tbe
Southern States from the bondage
which they are held, secure to
them the privilsge of being repre
sented in congress by their fairly
chosen delegates, abolish tbe semi-
mtlitary rule in that region, iasug-
rate universal amnesty, and effect
the abrogation of all su:h measures
as tbe Ha HI ox act. - Tbis certain-
would be an immeasurable im
provement on the present condition
of things, and would rcscuo us from
tbe danger of the still worse condi
tion which another four years' reign
of the dominant party would lead
to. The question for the Democra-
y to decide, then, is wnetnor so
great an achievement isnotwortb
so great sacrifice ; whether the
mere possibility of a complete Dem
ocratic victory may not be wisely
exchanged for the certainty of some
thing scarcely less satisfactory ;
whether the destruction of tbe pro
scriptive Republican policy may
not be more safely intrusted to tbe
ntuiagsm,4Bt of liberal Republicans,
ith such conclusive and effective
aid as Democrats will be sure to
render.
Many Southern papers, and such
prominent Democrats as Frank P.
Blair bave come out :n favor of
the movement inaugurated by tbe
Republican, and should the Democ
racy be defeated in Now York, as
t is probable they will be, it is
pretty cortain that there will not
be a regular Democratic nominee
for tho Presidency.
DEPARTURE MOVEMENT. The Bugbear of the New York
Tribune.
Connecticut Temperance Reform
trs are threatening to imitate the
miscbiovous tactics of their breth
ren :n some parts of Ohio in form-
ng a toirci and distinct organiza
tion, with an almost certain pros
pect ot turning tbe Mate into the
hands of their most violent oppo
nents. It is notorious that, if the
Derrocratic party ol Connecticut
secure tho Legislature, one of their
first acts would be to repeul tbe
Prohibitory law. In' the last Gen
eral Assembly tbe Republican Sen
ate passed a stringent bill, which
was continued to tbo next session
by Democratic votes in the lower
bouse. It is tolerably certain that
the only hope of tho Connecticut
Temperance Reformers is with the
Ropuhlican party; when they cut
away from tbat they are ready to
bo racrinced Dy tbo blindness cf
over-ze: l?U3 men.
We clip the above from the Trib
une as referring to tbe action of tem
perance men at iueriden, and in re
ply we would inform tho Tribune
that the Democratic party has ceas
ed to be a scare crow to Prohibt
tiocists in this Stato. Wo are well
awaro that tbe Republican party has
been kept in power sometime, not
for what is meritorious in its pres
ent issues, but out of fear of the
Democratic party. Tho Republi
can party has been nastcmus so
fast to get riJ ol her principles, and
bas roduccd herself so nearly to
the level of the Democratic party,
that truly honest men have httle
to choose.
Admitting tbo Democratic party
is corrupt, is tbe Republican parly
free from corruption ? Is the one
rum party tho o'.hcr is very far
from being an anti-rum party; aud
since tho Democratic "new depart'
ure" we can retlly discover noicaue
of any importance to weigh-against
Prohibition.
But, we are told, tbe Democrat
ic party, if in power, will repeal the
present law. it was in tbe majon
ly in the JUcgislaturo, two years
ugo, but though pledged to do so
before election did not dare to -do
it. The Republican party, last
Spring, would have done it if
durcd. It it not true that tbe Tru
mmi Smith bill was laid over by
Democratic voles any more thttn
by Republican votes.

The Future—Work and be
Hopeful.
The Rev. Gilbert Haven, editor
Zlon't Herald, Boston, lecently wrote
an article for the New York Independ
ent on Prohibition and political action.
He look forward witn encouragement
and confidence to tho future, and says
of the Prohibition party :
"Itwilput a Presidential nomina
tion in the field next year, snd begin
to be. That party demands State and
Xrlional prohibition. It demands the
extirpa ion oi tne aram-saup, me awi-
isnment of tbe sale or liquor as a bev
erage. It will invade Congress, as
has the State legislatures. It will
preach, Pray, labor, vote for prohibi
tion, as it has for abolition. It will
extinguish this curse from tbe law and
the world. - -
"Meantime, let politicians fight over
tbe spoils. Wings and Democrats tore
each other's throats in the meaningless
squabbles of thirty years ago, only
turniug aside occasionally to strike
blow at the equally contemed and
hated party of abolition. Tbe Tem
perance parry win grow, lor its te
cause is of God; and when these pres
ent quarrels are as forgotten as those
of 18i8, when the revolutionary work
was fully done, or those of 1850. when
the Clay and Webster conflicts bad
turned into there natural nothingness,
then sha'l it shine forth triumphant
over a land redeemed from its worst
enemy ; when no foreign lrquor shall

A TERRIBLE STORY.
Mr. Hunter s story is at onee
graphic and thrilling. 11 resided
at Peshtogo with his wife and little
child seven vonrs of age. Their
house was about three miles irom
the town, just at the edge of a strip
of forest. There had been ores Mi
tho woods and priwnc? for a
week
ureviouslr. and nigbt after night
they bad lo sit at tne windows gaz

flame, smoke, and eparsling cinders

Very little if any fear was enter
tained, as the course CT the fire
seemed away from town. On San-
day niht thor attended church in
the villago. They and Martine,
the hired man. retired to rest early,
wholly unexDfctinsr tbe tvarful peril
tbat was soon to overwhelm tbem
At about midnight they were arous
ed by the roar and crackling Df tbo
flumes. At first they were almost
petrified with amazement and fet.r
The blazing woods seemed march
lDir upoh them. A brisk breeze1 was
stirring, but tbe strong currents of
hot air raged to and fro with a bor
rid Howling sound. Quickly dress
in, they rushed to the yard. The
sky was thick with smoke, and
showers ot sparks were hurled
hither and thither, assai.ing their
faces, eyes, and cioihing. From
the barn came a piteous chorus o)
neighs, bellowmgs and screams
from the terrified cattle, horses and
Other animals. After greatdifficul

thrown, and the party mounted and
drove off. An eighth of a mile had
been traversed at a rapid rato when
a sudden gust of wind drove a mass
ot red-hot cinders upon them, filling
the air with stifling smoke. Where
the sparks fell tbey burned into the

black, and breathing was almost
impossible. The horses staggered
backed and reared with lunous
fccroams, and then, with a plunge
that unseated those in tbe wagon
madly rushed down the road at al
most lightning speed. All control
oi thorn was lost, and tbe party
clang to the sides of the vehicle

striking fire against the stones, and
the wagon swaying to and fro
from one aids of the road to the
other. Then for a time tbe wind
changed, and the clouds of cinders
