4. LOCAL SELF-GOVERNMENT
with impartial suffrage, will guard tho
rights of all citizens moro securely than
any centralized powor. Tho peoplo and
tho public welfare require tho SUPRE
MACY OF THE CIVIL OVER THE
MILITARY AUTHORITY and

individual tho largest liberty consistent
with public order, for tho stato 'self-government,
and for tho nation a return to

"TBUE AM PIIEACIIIXU."
6. Tho civil servico of the government
lias become n mcro instrument of partisan
tyranny and personal umbltlon, and an
object of selfish greed. It is n scandal
and reproach upon frco institutions, and
breeds a demoralization dangerous to the
perpetuity of republican government.

Thk Quincy Herald' hopes that
Democrats will not donounco Mr. Voor

not ? Tho cvldonco of a soil-out is con
clusive, and denunciation should not be

many years led tho democracy from ono
disaster to another, nnd now, a good op
portunity offering, they should bo kicked
without ceremony out of tho party.
The question of stato nnd local offices
Is ono which will scarcely causo a division
of sentiment among democrats nnd liberal
republicans. It is not likely that tho lat
ter, while laboring to elect Mr. Grecloy
will vote for tnon for minor offices who
desiro tho ro-olcction of Grant. This

The Servant Girls ot Dundee, Scot

protective association or union in order to
sccuro to thomsolvcs rights nnd privileges
which thoy mnintain justly belongs to
them. Among tho privileges which thoy
demand of mistresses nro tho following
not unreasonable ones, certainly : A half
holiday every week, a freo Sunday every
fortnight, nnd that working hours shall
begin at six in tho morning nnd end at
ten at night. In ordor to protect them

Our little nkiouiior, tho Anna 'Ad
vertiser', says Hornco Grecloy is crazy.
This is good to start off with, but this is
not all. Tho 'Advortiser' says "ho cm
'barrasscd Mr. Lincoln, ho gavo aid nnd
'encouragement to Jeff, Davis and his
'rebel gonornls, protracted tho war by
'his folly and cownrdico, delnycd pcaco
' and emancipation for moro than a year,
involvedtboj;South in utter ruin nnd
'caused tho loss on oach sido needlessly
'and wickedly of a hundred thousand
'lives nnd a thousand millions of proper
' ty." Whew I Who would hnvo thought
all this of good old Hornco,? Tho ' Ad
vertiser ' piles it on n littlo too thick.
Hnlf as big storics.'wouldbo much, moro
likely to bo believed.
Neither Luieral Republican nor
democratic nowspapors have condomned
moro severely tho policy of tho radical ad
ministration of tho government than have
several professed administration journals
of high standing. Tho Now York 'Her
ald' has criticised the acts of tho radical
congross without stint, nnd has novor been
oackward in pointing out to view tho
faults of tho mombors of Grant's cabinet.
A few daysngo, tho Cincinnati 'Gazette,' a
strong Grant paper, "lumped" tho follies
and mistakes of botli houses of congress
for tho last few years, and a formidable
pile they make. Tho purposo of these
newspapers is to excuse the mistakes of
General Grant, by laying the crimes of
tho radical party at ovcry other door but
his, but tho plan taken to effect this is not
a good one. Whilo exposing tho faults of
one part of tho administration, they nlso
uncover to view tho weakness of Its head.
No man over lost n grander opportunity
of leading u great nation from a sea of
troubles and attaching to himsolf men of
all shades of political opinion than has
General Grant. At his accession to power
and since, the stato of parties has been
such that tho masses of tho pcoplo
wero ready to fjtvor all move
mcnts nl his hands looking to
ward good and honost govommont
nnd Its peaceful administration. Had
General Grant, blindly worshipped by
tho pcoplo, thrown his influonco in fnvor
of thorn, and had tho strength of character
to mako it potent in publio affairs, no
power on earth could havo prevented his
re-election. But tho tido has passed. Ho
has heen found wanting, nnd tho adminis
tration papers which attempt to oxcuso
him by throwing tho blamo of his short
comings on congress or on his circle of ad
visors will have their labor for their pains.
Tho public is tirod of Grant.
THE STOREY MALCONTENTS.
Thoro wero In this suto thousands of
democrats who looked with suspicion upon
tho Passive Policy, advocated first by the
Missouri 'Republican,' und who saw in its
adoption the virtual disbandment of the
democratic party. Those domocrats de
sired to bury out of sight all dead Issues
and to advance promptly to the head of
the column of political progress. It was
believed tho adoption or this wiso policy
would disarm the prejudico of those repub
licans who wero dissatisfied with radical
folly, and that, if a mild candidate should
then bo nominated on a common-senso
platform the dominant party could b
ousted. Tho Chicago 'Times' was the
nblest advocate of this policy, and its edi
tor, Mr. Storey, with politicians liko Jim.
Robinson and Sam Marshall, came to the
eonclusioa that the man for candldato,
under this arrangement, was Judgo David
Davis. Two years ago, theso wiro pullors,
in conclavo assembled, dotorminod to make
Datii the democratic candidate for presi
dent In 1872. .
Aflor tho liberal movoraont had gained
headway, tho Davis schemers thought
they would play a sharp gamo on tho In
nocent and unsophisticated leaders of that
movomcnt, and they thercforo suddonly
becamo converted to the belief that tho
Passive Policy was "Justho thing." Thoy
then proceeded to rub down their rather
heavy nag and trot Davis around, pub
lishing him as n first-class liboral republi
cin just tho man whcuhould bo placed
at tho bond of tho liboral ticket. When
tho timo (or tho libcrnl convention ap
proached, thoy mustered their clan and
advanced on Cincinnati in force. Thoy
filled the hotels, shouted, cursed, drank
whisky nnd didn't succeed. Davis went
by tho board.
Chagrined nnd nngerod, Mr. Storey,
who knows no counsellor hut his own pas
slons, and who would eacriflco friends,
party, country clthor or nil to gratify
revenge, or accomplish n selfish ond, raised
n howl against Mr. Grecloy and is now
mustering his mon to pack the Baltimore
convention and givo tho doughty Davis its
Wo do not wish to cliarndterlzo tho con
duct of theso Davis mon in tho lnngungo
that would bo appropriate, but wo must
say to tho Judge's friends, that n though
thoy had all thoDemocratio politicians of
Southern Illinois with them in their at
tempt to smugglo their candidnto through
tho Cincinnati convention, thoy cannot
count upon them in their attempt to do
stroy tho lenders of tho Liberal move
ment by compelling tho Democratic con
vention to nominato n ticket nnd thus
mako suro tho ro-election of Gen. Grant.
Tho Democrats of this part of tho state
aro substantially a unit in their determin
ation not to bo led without protest nnd a
fight into now politicnl defeats by the
selfish nnd altogether unpatriotic political
wire-pullers who hold on to tho coat tail
of tho Chicago 'Timos,' fearing the lash
of that peculiar and powerful paper, nnd
dreading to raiso tho voico of protest
against its irlsolonco and insulting dicta
tion. Greeley is a hotter man than Davis, nnd
moro entitled to Democratic support. Ho
has nevor, as tho Judgo has, allowed Gen.
Grant to use him as a tool, nnd in all
things has beon as mnnly ns honest. Ho
is a man in whom tho peoplo can confido,
nnd tho 'Times' cannot lead them into the
folly of becoming its Instrument in the
attempt now being mado by tho Judgo

On tho inquest it was shown that Buck
Fanshaw, In the delirium of wasting ty
phoid fever, had taken arsenic, shot him
self through tho body, cut his throat, and
jumped out of a four-story lndow and
broken his neck; nnd after duo delibera
tion the jury, sud and tcurful, but with
intelligence unblinded by its sorrow,
brought in n verdict of dentil "by tho vis
itation of God." What could tho world
do without juries?
Prodigious preparations wero mado for
tho funeral. All the vehicles in tovn
woro hired, and all tho saloons wero put
in mourning, all tho municipal and 11 ro
company flags wero hung at half mast,
nnd all tho firemen ordered to muster in

Regretful resolutions wero passed and

among others, a committee of ono was

"How? I beg pardon. What did I

"Woll, you've rather got tho bulgo on

somehow. You don't smoko mo and 1
don't smoko you. You soe, one of tho boys
has passed in his checks, and we want to

am on now is to rout out somebody to
jerk out a little chin-music for us, nnd
waltz him through handsome."
"My friend, I seem to grow moro nnd
moro bewildered. Your observations uro
wholly incomprehensible to mo. Can not
you simplify thorn some way? At first I
thought perhaps I understood you, but
now I grope. Would it not expedite
matters if you restricted yourself to
categorical statements of fact unincum

" You'vo raised mo out, pard."
