The National Oullook.
The year Tl.SSO, which is frauglil
with political events which inuslhnvt
a decided influcn c upon tin- destine
of cui country, is upon us. 'J he two
great contending ) oliticul armies tire
marshaling (heir forces and preparing
for the struggle. 'I he preliminary
skirmishes have been lough', and so
far as Ohio and New York are con
cerned, they have gone against the
Democracy. But Lhey do nol ncccs
saiily fore-shadow defeat in the main
struggle. On the skirmish line there
was cause lor the disaster, rind it was
XVithin our own party. There was
dis o itiou in our ranks. Jn Ohio the
ill-fated financial question, a< well a
ii lack of union on the part ol our
leaders, brought defeat. In Now
York the traitor Ivel Icy and the cor
rttpt Tammany ring, unable to elect
themselves, look revenge in prevent

changing. At one moment the sky
is bright, and at the next il U cloudy.
Time works wonders. Wo'don't know
what a low month.-- will bring forth.
The aspect to-daj is not what iL was
a few months ago.
The temporary disasters wc have
experienced will have two good
effects. They will show us that we
must be united, and that we cannot
nfllrd to jar among ourselves. And
they will also teach us that the South
makes a fatal blunder when il forces
itself into national politic* and press
es the claims of its favorites. We
must keep aloof from national poli
tics, and leave everything to the
We have grave doubts if Bayard
can be elected llcing classed as a
Southern man, his nomination would
solidify the North against us. The
Democracy must nominate n man
whe can divide the North, ul lea?t to
such un extent ns to carry a few
Noi l hern I* lutes.
Wr. would say that Saym >ur of
New Yoik would be the man, but his
association with Blair and his revo
lution talk in '08 we fear will hurt
We therefore prefer to let the
matter rest entirely with the Northum
Democracy, and we will be more sure
of success. If our little skirmishes
I ring us to this conclusion we think
the events of tho past will prove for
The breaking of the solid North
should be the aim of our Stilt, smci,
and this will never be accomplisho:!
by clamoring for the, elevation of
favorites, which, while it may benefit
individuals, will do no go i.l to ' tY.i
Farm life is certainly the happiest
and fitfcisi ol nil cnliings,and how in
the beginning of the new year it may
bo well?in fact, it i.- the cb ty of each
farmer to mate his calculations and
prepare well in order to make a good
start for the year. The January work
on the farm is very important. The
first step is to taue an inventory ol
the tools, and supply whatever is
needed. Again the farmer should
prepare his books an I k :e,> a correct
credit and debil nccotint will) all l.i

The State Campaign.
A great deal is already being said
and written on tho subject ol the
coming election for Governor.
Gen. Uary and Gen. (Iagoo 1 seem
to b. the candidates tm st spoken of.
We must confess that we doii'l think
either of these men altogether lil! the
bill. Tho former is too extreme, and
the later lacks the magnetism an I
I opularity necessary for a leader.
Wl.ile v.c have not sufficiently can

the qualifications that the < nudidatc

It will soon be our duty to make
the choice of the man to lead us to
victory, and it is lime for us to be
preparing to aelcct with wisdom. We
don't ivunt candidates, but we want
lo select the i omitig man ourselves.
The Frecdinen'6 Savittss.
It is said that Congressman O'Con
nor is receiving petitions from the
colored people everywhere to press
his I ill for their relief in refunding
to them the nioney stolen from them
in the Freeman'n Hank swindle.
It will be renn nibered that just
alier the war, the freed men were en
ticed by .-b e;; and greasy Uepublican
officials to put their saxings iu this
bank, and thtiH save w hat they could
from the re<l handed rebels, but as
soon as the bank got full of money
it mysteriously failed. Mr.O'Con
nor, ol our District, baa introduced it
i bio to restore this m hey to the poor

now is, what are lie Ucpuhlicaiis
going to do id out it'! Will they
continue to remain inactive, or will
I they support Mr, O'Connor's bill?
