ITH 1 DAY, .lANfAi.Y 18S0.
The meteoric scintillations in the.
political horizon Tire certainly more
conspicuous and start ling at this time
than we have ever noticed before.
First, we have the K? itt id >a of
the Grant Bayard movement, and
Jjr. Bagby'a letter in the same, line;
hut, unfortunately for ilicse reform*
ers,(although fortunately for the coun
try,) their proposed unholy alliance
comes just on the eve of the decline
of the Grant "boom." Tho IMiihi
dclphia rimes, alluding In it, says
"it requires neither th? prophet nor
the son of a prophet to say that bo
iure Grant avid Bayard run on the
same ticket the millennium will have
arrived. Not until then will the lion
and lamb lie down together."
There is comparatively hss Grant
"gush" at the North than at the
South, and the Keilt idea does not
meet with a response even in that sec -
tion. The North h not solid for Grant.
Next, we have; the Aikcn idea,
which seiins to be that I ho Demo
cratic and the Republican parties
have outlived their usefulness, ami
that tin: farmers must rai.-e a new
parly. We do not think as S n:e do,
thai Mr. Aikcn, in this expression ol
opinion, intends at heart to aba idon
the Democratic party, but thai he
only wishes I he farmers to make
themselves innre felt in the council
of the nation. Being a Granger, it
is natural that he should have their
intciesls uppermost in his thoughts,
but.he is loo thoroughly identified
with the South to suppose for a mo
lU-r-MJ-l? I lol t?bi? \voo 1<1 j/u iig'ii
interests of his people. i>ei:ig a bold
and honest thinker, and always in
dependent, he thinks aloud.
We look with much moderation
upon Col. Aiken's views. In the
midst of much that is impracticable
and visionary, he expresses a deal ol
Next cornea Charles O'Connor's
notions, lie is regarded as one of
the ablest men in America, and on
this account his views are entitled to
consideration. An outline of his re
cent letter appears in another col
umn. The j rominent feature of this
letter is the proposed obliteration of
State lines. This is certainly strange
doctrine for a Democrat, and seems
very much like a complete surrender
to Republicanism. When we con
sider that in 1872 I ha flea O'Connor
was too straight-out to vote for
Horace Greeley, the sudden turn is
incomprehensible. The letter is a
How Mr. ?X onor can expect the
cause of liberty to be advanced by
the centralization of poWer which the
obliteration of Slate lines would
cause, we are at a loss to imagine.
The philosophy ol government or
polities is very much the same as the
philosophy of nnluiv. Too much
centrifugal or too much coutiipeiul
force wou'd produce destruction, flic
proper poising of these forces is wh it
is needed in politics, ami this is whai
is accomplished by the iull iciicu of
tho Democratic doctrine of States
rights. Its centrifugal tendency is
what counteracts the natural centri
petal tendency around u<, and keep.-,
the government in equal balance.
Just as the earth would plingo head
long into tho great solar centre in
obedience to its centripetal tendency
if its centrifugal force wer?- removed,
so if Mr. O'Connor's idea of dung
awn) with the State lines were ear
ried out, all power would be precipi -
fated into the central government,
and a despotism at Washington would
be the result.
Such arc .some of ti>e meteor'c l
monstrntions which are now bursting
upon the political world. No do we
think that they are altogether with
out good results. They indicate a
calthicr state of public opinion, und
a laudable advance in tho direction of
freedom of thought. Nothing shows
a more servile condition in any com

<v.'M"' ho restored hy such methods.
Tin \ e.nn only In- brought back by
perlet I freedom of speech, toleration,
and the power of truth. The devia-.
lions from Democracy are owing
rather to real or imaginary evils, or
outside local isstfcs arising among
men, thun to the fundamental princi
ples of the parly. Let them be thor
oughly understood, aud the wanderers
will conic buck to the old landmarks,
for they tire an true as steel, and as
lasting as the hilt. The foibles of
the parly belong to men, and not to
principles. It is therefore best for
us to keep our own house clean in
stead of looking about for new ones,
or following strange devices.
The Rising Generation.
When we contemplatt tho political
corruption which has disgraced the
high? -t places in our land, and cast
about for a meann of purification, we
are instinctively drawn to the rising
generation us the only hope for the
future. Upon their proper training
and culture depends the destiny of our
land for the general ions to conic.
The importance then of the education
oi the young cannot he over estimated
We cannot neglect it without doing
:.n n jt;r\ , not only to ourselves,hut to j
Hut in what docs education con
sist? He who imagines that it is
confined alone to the development of
the intellect, only partially compre
hends the subject . It inc.inks moral
and physi al as well iu intellectual
A youth filled with classical lore,
Without the development of the phy
sical and moral nntut'i, would be.
poorly educated,and, on the Contrary,
i ne fully trained in the moral a d '
physical line, to the neglect of the
culture td* the mind,Would ne equally
imperfect. It is the combination ot
ail that makes the perfect in an.
The training of the intellect is
done principally in our schools ol
learning, but along will; it the physi
cal development of the pupil should
receive a lull share, of attention. To
this end every appliance for athletic
exercise should he used.
IL seems to us unfo rtunate thafqur*
,;(u>i?itiiun t-oli o.do uro ??? jiooiMy ?pro
vided in this important eespect.
Nothing is so essential to the happi
ness of humanity than the existence
of a sound and healthy race; and it
is only in this way that we can ob
tain this blessing.
But the most important point in
the education ol youth i* the develop,
ment of the moral character. .This
can be done to a great extent in the
school room, hut chieliy through
home influence, because it is here
that the young have before them the
secret life of those who are their
guides and teachers, and it is here
that the natural affections act as a
powerful auxiliary in gaining the
heir , i nd hen hy the attention and
iute:e st of ihc learner.
Let us then endeavor, b)' example
as well as by precept, to guide the
\oung in the ways of truth, and
teach them to be noble, true aud
good. Lei us point out to them the
error and wrong that surrounds them
on cvciy side, not ci vering it up
when found ii. high places ? which,
uhis ! is too often the cast;?but faith?
fully expose the false ami hold up the
right. Let the veil of hypocrisy ho
torn off wherever foiiii I. If \\o desire
to elevate ihc tone of society and
bless mankind for the ages to come,
we must educate the rising geiiera
t ion. 'I his is the hope ol tin country.
Let nil our individual influence he
cast in this direction, and wn will
enjoy the double satisfaction of ho V
ing blessed ourselves in our efforts to
bless nt hers.
