'DsJtorBACY la a aontiincut not to e appalled,
corrupted or comproiuUci. It kuowg so baseness,
co era to no danger, opprnteei no weakness. Fear
less, generous and humane, It rebukes the arrogant,
cherlehcs honor, and sympathises with tho humble.
It asks nothing but what It concedes; It concedes
nothing but what it demands. Destructive only of
despotism, It is the tola conservative of liberty, la
bor and property. It la the sentiment of freedom,
of equal obligations. It Is the law of nature per
vading tho law of tho land. The stupid, the sel
fish, the base In spirit may denounco It at a vulvar
thing; but in the history of our race tho Demo

soul of man until, claiming an equality with the

WHAT OF THE STRUGGLE IN THE
The political Contest in New York, now
fully inaugurated, will bo watched with
eager interest by both parties.
' Unfortunately for the Democracy of the
country, tho party in New York has for a
number of years been divided ; and even now,
on tho threshhold of an election that will
exercise a powerful, if not a controlling in
fluence upon the presidential election next
year, its tactions are ready to fly at each
other1 throats. But while this is true of
tho Democracy, we cannot concievc that tho
Republican household has any materiul
advantage in point of harmony and oneness
of purpose. The nomination of A. B. Cor
nell, for Governor hasestranged many of tho
most influential Republicans of the State,
nnd has created wide-spread dissutisfuction
in that clement of the party that is opposed
to the onc-inan rule of Senator Cockling.
Even the New York Times, the ablest,
fiercest, and most influential Republican
sheet in the United States, openly avows its
dissatisfaction, and declares that "there is
no possible reason why A. B. Cornell should
bo made Governor of New York. But we
will let the Times speak for itself. It says :
"If the Democracy of this state should prove
no hopelessly divided that any possible
state ticket would rind one wing of the purty
resolutely bent on its defeat; if the Green
back vote of tho state sliould exceed that of
last year, aud three-fourths of it should bo
drawn from tho Democratic party; if the po
litical issues at stake in tho fall election
fchouVl appeal to Republicans with sufficient
force to draw out a full vote irrespective of
tho candidates who may bo presented, then
such a nomination as that of Mr. A. B.Cor
nell need be latal to Repifblicun
success this fall. To those who
regard tho fulfillment of all these condi
tions as in tho last degree improbable, it
must appear tho very height of folly to
handicap the party in one of the most criti
cal contests ot its history with a candidate
for governor 'equally uurltted to evoke en
thusiasm or to swifll the normal proportions
of the Republican voto. Mr. Cornell be
longs to that pretty numerous order of men
who are remarkable for nothing in particu
lar, unless it be tho respectable medtociity
vi muir i;iittitn.i iiuu uwiuuea. 1 tltTO is
no possible reason to bo found in his own
capacity or achievements why ho sliould be
made governor of tho state of Nqw York
tny more than there wag any reason why
ho shoutilhave twicjjj obtained ;on f t
chief portion in tho cuBtoiu -house, or bcoti
ropcatoxlly niado chairman ot the state com
mittee. When it id said thatSonator Conk
ling has chosen to mako Mr. Cornell tho
depository of hi favor and his confldcuco
everything lias been said which isnoeded to
explain Mr. Cornell's public career.
And, apart from all questions of party '
success or failure, that is the point which
makes Mr. ' Cornell's position a very in
auspicious omen lor tho futtiro of tho
Republican party in this state. If the
party organization has become si) ninch a
matter of mcchauism that a stato convention
simply meets to register tho preferences of
ono man, the vitality of the party will bo
found to have disappeared about tho time
that its discipline is mado absolutely per
fect." And thus is the way to a Democratic
victory opened by the adversary, at the very
onst of fie battle. Will tho Democracy
of New York solidify itself, and improve
the opportunity; or will it earn the curses
and execration of the whole party, by con
tinuing its quarrels, by keeping up the
wrangles that will insure defeat? We can
but wait and sec.

There was considerable excitement in
our village a few nights since. The word
went out that II. P. Putman, Esq. and Mrs.
C. J. Standard were married. The boys at
once resolved upon a charivari, and lormcd
into a band for the purpose, and proceeded
at once to the houso of J. P. Standard,
where the pair was, and the hideous strains
und howls commenced. Then it was that the
gentle sleepers leaped from their couches
und raised tho cry of fire, thunder, nnd all
other bad things tho imagination rould con
ceive of, but the boys continued to halloo,
and beat. Tho noise became unendurable
ttmj Esq p thought he would change the
grogramme, so he aud Mrs. L. put on . their
wrappings, and came boldly out aud started
up tho street, the crowd after them, making
more noise than ever. From some cause the
whole party repaired to Parson Gi fiords,
where tho boys demanded to know whether
they were married or not, and if not, pro
posed that the Parson proceed to join them,
then and there, as they did not propose to
be fooled; whereupon, the Parson agreed to
tell them nil he knew about the matter, if
they would make up a certain amount of
necessary tunds. The money was made up,
and the Parson gave the required informa
tion. All was satisfactory ud ended pleas
