in the Democratic party I I love it
because of that spirit. J love it for
its nn'.ernporizing boldnets in the as.

its straight forward directness in the
avowal of its principles. ' I love it for
the iudomitahle courage with which
it maintains Its organization against
all the despotic, efforts to pnt down
and stifle its utterance. I love it for
its single minded and unalterable at
tachment t tho Union, the idol of its
political worship; for the maintenance
of wbish it leads tho column ol brave
hearts now striking for its defense.
