their services will be remembered.
In lacr, scarcely a man in the county
who professed to be a Democrat but
worked. To name them all would be
"impossible. Many Old-Line Whigs
come out and honestly acknowledged
our tousisteocy and patriotism of tlie
.' party, and voted with us for tlis very
best of reasons, io wit: Because il was
dangerous to trust the Government in
the hands oj Fusion Fanatics-me
experimentators who had nothing at

Compare, if you please, the act of a
Whig voting the Democratic ticket
with D. D. T. Hard's ,ct in "going

Innocent Pleasures.
I have lived to become aincerely sus
picious of the piety ot those who do
not love pleasure m any lorm. I can
net trust the man that never laughs,
that is always sedate, that has . no ap
parent outlets lor those natural springs
of sportiveness and gayety that are
perennial in the human soul. I know
that nature takes her revenge on such
violence. 1 expect to find secret vices,
malignant sins, or lion id crimes spring
ing up in this hot-bed of confined air
and imprisoned space; and, therefore,
it gives me a sincere moral gratihca
tion anywhere, and in any community,
to see innocent phasure and popular
amusements resisting tlie religious big
otry that li owns so unwisely upon them.
