Those journals of the democratic
party which profess to be so thoroughly
imbued with the spirit of genuine
democracy they cannot tolerate any
person who asserts that the constitution
as it was" docs net now operate as it
did, point to the result of the late elec
tions in California, Ohio and Pennsyl
vania, and ask : " What did the 1 new !
' departure ' avail the democratic
'party; ot much, we admit; but
why? The Bourbons of the demo
cratic party have for years ruled in its
council chambers. They have, ever
since the anti-war departure of the
" non-eoercionists " in 1803, dictated
the policy of the democracy, ami the
more reasonable members of the party
have submitted, not because they loved
these impracticable fellows more, but
because they loved the radicals les;
During the Bourbonic domination, how
was it with the democratic party? Did
not one defeat follow another? And
now, the party liaving returned to its
old principles devotion to the constitu
tion as it is, and the assertion of the
duty of submission to all laws enacted
by the peoples' representatives until
declared null by the courts these
Rourbon stand back, pat the radicals

allies of the republicans, and jhen,

' departure avail you?" This is adding
insult to injurv. But no matter.
Time, at last, sets all things even, and
in time these iccorrigib.es will be com
pelled to admit the folly of their in
iquitous course. In the meantime, we
teel comturtabte la the thought that it
is better to be defeated battling for the

Mennsha, Wis., Letter to the Cleveland Leader.
1 have just returned from what was
once IVslitigo whither I went yesterday,
thnt I might be able to give to tho readers
of the Herald n correct account of tin
destruction cf that place. The village wa?
situnted on Peshtigo river, seven miles
from Green Unv. It was n nice little lowi.
of about two thousand inhabitants, quitt
regularly laid out, had flue hotels, stores,
churches, schools, eet., besides the largt
factors- owned by tho Peshtigo Manufactu
ring Company, "it sash, door and blind
faetory and foundry also owned by the
same company, who owned nearly "ever v.
building in the town. The facto'ry was
devoteu to tho manufucturo of pails) tub.
broom-handles, etc., nnd gnvo employment
to about seven hundred hands in tbe diil'er
Tho town is nearly surrounded by lint
forests, the suburban portions bslng built
"among tho pines. " The inhabitants have
for tho past ten dnys been lighting fire in
the woods, trying to save tho town, nna
hnd settled down into it feeling of compara
tive security since the woods on all sides
had been more or less burned over.
On Sunday night tbey were nwkened
from this feeling of security hy it noie
like di-tnni thunder, which" incereased in
volum until the crash of falling trees nnd
tho roar of the wind and fire could be
plninly heard. Soon ttfter a tornado burst
upon tho town, unrooting n number ot
buildings, nnd ouickly followed by a solid
sheet ol flame, extending the wholu length
of the village and fur bevond each way
In an instant tho whole exposed side of
the place was in flames. -Men, women and
children rushed into the street, aud, stir
rounded oy tire on nil sides, were soon
either smothered or burned to death. In
tho less exposed portions the people fled to
the river, nnd, lumping in, many were
drowned. Some saved their lives by keep
ing theit bodies under water and "uncu u
n while putting their head tinder a tin
heat bec-amo insutlernble Others took
refuge in wells and ci-ternsnnd wore paved
Qnilu a large portion of tho inhabitants rati
to a field to tho leeward of the fire, and by
lying on the ground wero saved, nlthoug ".
some of these were badly burned, there
is but one house left standing, and this is
isolated and lately built of green lumber
As near as can ut present bo ascertained
two hundred lives were lost, mostly wo
men aud children. Although it good
ninny men perished, there nro sevcnty-llvu
who" are badly burned, many of whom
will die, nnd nearly all aro more or less
burned. The destruction has been -o com
plete that tho streets cannot bo traced, nil
being covered with sund which was swept
in great clouds by tho tornado, In some
instances bodies have been found ctmplctly
covered by sand.
As soon ns tho fire had sufficiently sub
sided all that wero able went to tho relief
of the sufferers. Rlackcned charred corpses
wero lying in every direction, with tneir
clothing, as a general thing, nenrly or
quite burned off. Mnny dead bodies were
found in the river und many moro have
been recovered. A number have died
from their bruise?, while others nro crip
pled or fearfully disfigured.
The most imaginative mii.d cannot be
gin to realize this fearful calamity, much
loss my poor pen to describe it. The
shrieks and groans of tbo dying and ol
those who had lost near und 'dear friends;
tlio gustly itspet ot the blueoned corpses;
tho shocking nppearnnco of many who,
badly burned and almost destitute ot
clothing, running tbey knew not where,

picture too horrid tor contemplation.
Tho sufferers huvo nil been taken to Gretn
Hay and other towns, where tbey will bo
kindly cured for, us hospitality i one of
thu marked Units of the West.
The loss to tho Peshtigo Company, who
owned tho factories nnd most of tlio town,
beside largo pinu land-, is estimated at
three million dollars, besides tho loss ol
their extensive warehouses in Chicago.
