WHAT EXPERIENCE OUGHT TO
Many of otir readers will recollect
the memorable contest of 1840, which
ended in placing Harrison in the
Presidential chair, and ousting the
democrats who, for a lftng succession
of years, had possession of the gov
ernment. At tliis time, it is true.
politics had not become so corrupt
nor had corruption in politics been
reduced to a science as at the pres
ent time. Yet under the strong dis
cipline of Jackson, and the skillful
manipulations of Van Buren, assist
ed by a large number of the ablest
minds the country has ever produc
ed, both in and out of Congress, it
seemed almost impossible that, the
democratic party could be d:splaced
from power. The opposition then,
was the Whig party, who were not
only in the minority in almost every
State in the Union, but repeated de
feats had disheartened and discour
aged the rank and file of the party.
And, although with every returning
campaign they contested the ground
manfully, yet their leaders had but
little hope of success. About this
time, whether through Democratic
mismanagement or not, the country
was passing through a money strin
gency tiiat crippled and prostrated
the business interests of the nation
to an extent never before experienc
ed, and which created distrust and
doubt as to the future. The people
felt that somebody was responsible,
and the old Whig leaders were quick
to discern the position of things, and
to make the most of their opportuni
ty. They told the people that the
Democratic party had exclusive con
trol of the government for a long
time; they charged that party with
reckless expenditures of the public
monies; with devising new and ill
digested schemes of finance, and
with making large and uncalled for
appropriations. Democrats alone are
responsible- for the mischief; now
pnt them ont: - These were the ar
guments that were used bv the old
Whig leaders, and before them the
Democratic mnjorjtiesifUat day
melted away like seow when expos
ed to the rays of the Summer's sun.
Now in order to profit by some of
the lessons which the wisdom, or
rather cunning of these old Whig
leaders would seem to teach, it is
if ell for us to remember that they
did not go before the people with
set of resolves prepared in advance
for rescuing the country from the
d.fficulties that seemed to beset it
But they merely told the people who
were responsible, and asked them
put them out of position first, and
then they would administer to the
patient. If the Democratic leaders
will recall some of these lessons
which should neveFTiave Been for
gotten, they will see, at a glance, the
opportunity that is now offered them;
an opportunity far superior to that
which the old Whig leaders made
available in their day, and which car
ried them through to a successful is
sue, in a campaign the most brilliant
in the history of political parties.
For fifteen years the Republican par
ty have had unlimited control of ev

During this time fraud, corruption
and rascality of every kind and de
gree have attained a power never be
fore reached. Influences are at work
to-day which, if not checked, must
ultimately end in national disgrace,
bankruptcy and ruin. The Republi
cans must shoulder these responsi
bilities; they are the party in power.
The patient has become sick while
under their care. Let Democrats
say to the people, dismiss your phy
sicians so long in charge. Until
then, we have no remedy to propose;
we do not intend to subject our man
ner of treatment to your hostile crit
icism; time enough to enter into
particulars when the patient is plac
ed under oiir care. Let our platform
for the great Centennial year be on
the simple issue of reform! Reform,
that will be real and genuine; that
will not only be a check upon these
streams of corruption that now del
uge the land.; but that will dry them
up - effectually. This will form
platform upon which every well
wisher of his country can stand. Let
the rallying cry be, not so mu h par
ty as country ; not so much men
principle; making this the line
our deft n?:, we will be victorious.

The latest accounts reveal the fact
that there will be 24 contested seats
in Congress, nine of which are occu
pied by Democrats and 15 by Re
publicans. Lively times ahead.
It is remarkable that the Demo
cratic votes for Governor in Ohio and
Pennsylvania at the late elections,
numbered almost the same. Thus,
Allen received 202,204, and Pershing
292,145 a difference of onlv 119.
AN IMPORTANT DUTY.
Oue of the most important auxil
iaries in the dissemination of Demo
cratic sentiments is the local Demo
cratic paper. It is not only natural,
but we are morally required in poli
ties asan every thing else, when we
are satisfied that our sentiments arc
riyht to endeavor to impress the
truth ofonrown convictions upon
our neighbors. We may do this,
reasoning with them by their own
actions, and in almost numberless
ways. When we neglect any means
in our power to convert them to our
views, we neglect the performance of
a duty. We are all in some measu.e
"our brother's keeper," and to some
extent, responsible for his condition.
The truth of this, all must admit,
and yet how wofully this duty is
neglected by Democrats in this coun
ty. We have men whose eonvietions
are strong, that their political opin
ions . are right, and yet they never
mal.- nn attempt ' to enlighten or
strengthen their neighbors. They
never make an attempt to dissemi
nate correct Democratic principles,
by the circulation of democratic
nnwsnantrs. Thev sad!y neglect

their duty in this respect Every
Democrat in Preble county is just as
much interested politically, in in
creasing the circulation of the Deii
ocrat as we are, and yet how many
there are who never have asked a
neighbor even to read it, much less
to subscribe for it. If we did not
believe it was to the interest of the
party to have it published, we would
never issue another number. If you,
reader, desire to see it published; if
you believe that the interests of the
party are promoted by having it reg
ularly issued, then manifest your be
lief by some kind of works. If the
distribution of five hundred copies iS
beneficial, would not fifteen hundred
or two thousand be more so? and the

have not as a good Democrat, done

as the register of voters. He can
disfranchise as many voters as he
pleases by merely drawing his pen
through their names. The citizen
who is thus deprived of his vote has

Thanksgiving day last' Thursday
was quite generally observed thro'
the country, the people seeming to
find some reasons for gratitude, not
withstanding hsrd times and general
discouragements. The origin and
history of Thanksgiving day has
been so often published that we will
not stop to give it, only to say that
it oiiginated with the pilgrim fath
ers, and under circumstances that
the modern American would not find
inspiring him with gratitude. How
ever, the first original characteristic,
the religious, has in a great measure
disappeared, and probably will en

these things may happen; "we can

THAT'S THE TALK!
This is the way the Vicksburg
Herald talks over the Democratic
victory in Mississippi: .
- "Oh, let it not be said in the fu
ture that our victory has been bar
ren of good! Let us use the bless
ings that have been granted us, that
all the people of this State, of every
age, 'sex, color, and race, and of
every political creed shall have
cause to rejoice that we have won
this victory. We are now responsi
ble that Mississippi pursues the
path of peace and prosperity. She
as again emerged from the dark
ness; so let the glorious light of her
redemption shed its effulgence over
all the whites and blacks, that all
may live in harmony, and blessed
with contentment and prosperity.
Then shall . we indeed have won a
ictory whose glory can never fade."
THE THIRD TERM MOVEMENT.
Some Republican journals which
deprecate the Third Term Move
ment, assert that it is simply a
Democratic device ' to alarm the
people, and that President Grant
can not be nominated for a Third
Term in a Republican National
Convention. That remains to be
seen. "W. J. V." in a recent letter
from Washington City to the Cin
cinnati Commercial, writes:
"Speaking of the third term re
minds me t-at I have heard more of
it, and more expressions in favor of
t during this week than ever betore.
I am beginning to believe that all
the sentiment in favor of a third
term is not, after all, going about
under General Grant's hat. Brother-in-law
Casey has been particularly
ostentatious in declaring that the
"emergency" has arisen, and that
Grant would again be compelled to
be a candidate for the purpose of
again saving the country."

ity for the statement that an organ
ization has been formed among
Southern men at the head of which
is Col. MosBY, to promote the third

OUR GROWTH IN POPULATION.
There is one element of wealth, one
agency in recover from prostration
possessed by this country, which we
are apt to forget when misfortune
overtakes us; we mean immigration.
If we did not have this unfailing
fountain to draw fresh supplies of
life and vigor from, our recovery
from" such depressions a3 that now
prevailing would be comparatively
slow; if we were exporters, instead
of importers of able-bodied men, the
case would be still worse. Able-J
bodied men and women-are the most
valuable of all imports that can be
brought to the shores of a new cotin-
try and they possess oue feature
that other imports do not; the3'Cost
nothing. Ihirty tons of .bnglish
rails purchased for a railroad h. this
country would cost probably $1,000
in England; and the expense of get
ting them to a Western State would
be $100 more. But when a robust
foreigner arrives on our shores we
have an addition of $1,000 worth of
labor to our wealth that costs nothing
at nil; the new-comer pays his own
way and asks nothing of us but the
right of working for his liv ng. A
recently taken State census of New
York illustrates the value of this
source of wealth. The population of
this State is given at 4,916,004, an
increase of 1,084,827 in the last ten
years, and ot od-1,8-13 in the last uve
years. I he gain since labo has been
28A per cent, or 2 8. a year, a larger
rate of increase than is exhibited in
either of the last four decades. It is
taken for granted, therefore, thr.t the
county has regained its old ratio of
increase before the war, which was
about one-third for every ten years.
If this estimate is' correct, the pros
ent population of the United States
is about 40,500,000, and the popula
tion at the next census, hve 3'ears
hence, will be 53,000,000. '1 his vig
orous growth, unequalled in anv eth
er country on the globe, will of itself
lift us out of the embarrassment into
which the panic of 1872 plunged us;
we shall grow out of the trouble, as
well as work out of it.
It is well enough to keep this
strange recuperative agency before
us. During the ten years, the num
ber of immigrants nrtived on our
shores was 3,379,627 enough to
form two States as populous as Mas
sachusetts. So that, in addition to
the natural growth of population
possessed by other nations, we have
an immigration that gives enough
population to form two powerful
States every decade. When we calm
ly reflect that this stream of 300,000
immigrants per annum is steadily
pouring in upon us, and affecting
ever3T part of the land; that our pop
ulation five 3'ears" hence will be 53,
000,000; that the population of Mis
souri will be 2,200.000, and the pop
ulation o St. I ouis over 000,000 it
will become clear that it is our duty
not to repine at the depression that
affects the land, but to prepare for
the vigorous new growth that is
aloi;t to succeed it. Missouri Republican.

teith the gloss and fresluiess of - youth.
Thin hair is thickened, falling hair
checked, and baldness ofteni' though,
not always, cured by its use.' Noth
ing can restore the hair where tho
follicles are destroyed, or the glanda
atrophied and decayed. But such s
remain can be saved . for usefulness
by this application. . Instead of foul
ing tho hair with a pasty sediment, it
will keep it clean and vigorous. Its
occasional use will prevent the hair
from turning gray or falling o$ and
consequently prevent baldness. Free
from those deleterious substances
which make some preparations dan
rrcrons, and injurious' to the hair, the
Vigor can only benefit but not harm
it. If wanted merely for a
nothing else can be found so desir
able, . Containing neither oiU nor
dye, it docs not soil white cambric,
and yet lasts long on the hair, giving
it a rich, glossy lastro and a grateful
r.crfumc. . . . .'.....;.-
