THE HOPE OF THE RKPII1L.IC
The Democratic party is a sensitive party.
It is especially sensitive to any infringement
npon the rights of voters. The freedom of
the ballot is dearer to it and more desired by
it than even the spoils which go with politi
cal victory. Consequently, when an assault,
or anything that looks like an assault, is made
on that freedom, all other work is dropped by
the Democratic forces and a grand rally is
made in defence of "the right preservative
of all rights." To be sore, their eagerness in
defence of this right sometimes makes them
ridiculous, but they console themselves by
feeling and reiterating the importance
Certain manufacturers and business men of
Vermont have recently given the Democratic
party an opportunity to show its sensitive.
ness and its abhorrence of any interference
with the freedom of the ballot. These man
afactnrers and business men, profoundly im
ssed with the importance of
victory -for the principles of the Re
publican party, issued a circular - ad
vising working people to vote for the candi
dates who represent those principles. The
circular contained, not one word or phrase
which could possibly be understood
threat that failure to comply with its advice
would be followed by loss of employment,
though it did contain arguments addressed to
the understanding and judgment. But the
sensitive and freedom-loving Democracy can-
not sit calmly by and see any voter subjected
to even tbe bulldozing influence of fair argu
ment, and consequently a great howl has
arisen from the party press. The 'Cermont
workingmen are deeply sympathized with on
account of the circular outrage upon their
rights, and the freedom of the ballot is being
battled for with that courage and fervor
which have always characterized its defense
by the Democratic party.
But it is not alone in Vermont or other
northern States that we find the Democratic
party doing battle for the freedom of the
ballot. That party is not a sectional party,
and it labors for the good of the whole coun
try. Consequently when "the right preserv
ative" is attacked in the South it rushes to
its defense with the same zeal and courage it
displays in the North. Its methods of de
fense are, it is true, different in the latter
section, but so is the South different from the
North. The freedom of the ballot has lately
been in some danger in South Carolina, and
Wade Hampton led the Democratic forces
its defense. This is the way he cheered
them on : "Try to convince the negro that
we are his real friends but if he will not be
convinced, and is still joined to his idols, con
vince him at least that he must look to those
Idols, whom he serves as his gods, to feed
and clothe him. Agree among yourselves and
act firmly on this agreement, that you will
not employ any one who votes the radical
ticket. " Ex-Goveraor B. F. Perry, a man
dear to Andrew Johnson and General Han
cock, has also struck powerful blows in de
fense of the freedom of the ballot in South
Carolina. One of them is as follows : -
Every true Democrat "and every honorable
man should nseoup in the majesty of his
strength, and swear on the altar of his coun
try and his God that this (Republican success
shall not be, let the consequences be what
they may. The poor, miserable, unprincipled
wnite man wno tries to - restore tne radical
party to power in South Carolina should be
socially ostracised, and not even spoken to on
tne street. He should be treated as an ene
my to his. race. HoKtis humani gcnms.ftTEhe
colored man should be told that his leaders
are making tools of him only to gratify their
pitiable ambition, and have a chance of steal
ing his hard earnings. He should be told.
too, that if he will vote to place rogues and
scoundrels in office and power no honorable
Democrat will employ him in any way. This
should be resolved jon and adhered to
throughout the State. Social ostracism for
the white man and no employment for the
The Greenville News does not wish to be
behind Hampton or Perry in the good work,
and therefore it declares : .
We mean that the white-skinned man or
negro whoUeliberately enters the fight for a
radical state ticket will do so with the under
standing that he will hereafter receive no fa
vors or recognition from white men. .Let
them understand that there- will be no em-
ployment for them where it is possible to
avoid it ; that there will be no credit given
them : that from them the last fart tunc will
be relentlessly exacted ; that the kindness of
masters will cease.
And the Aiken Journal falls into line with
a call for the reorganization or tne 'Ted
shirt clubs,' and urges them to get at work
breaking up Republican meetings.
Those melancholy ones who feel .that the
Republic is in danger can take heart. So
long as the freedom of the ballot can be pre
served there is hope. The Democratic party,
the party of the whole country, has prom
ised that it shall be preserved, and is taking
vigorous measures to that end, especially in
the rSouth, where the danger is greatest.
That party has never yet failed to keep its
promises. It saved the Union once (accord
ing to Ben Butler) when it was threatened
with dissolution by armed traitors. It will
save it now if red shirt clubs, shot-guns, os
tracism anS "branding" can do the great and
noble work. ' -
There are 20,141 persons who hold regis
tered United States four per cent, bonds.
Of these, 7,683 hold $500 each or less than
that sum, and of these 0,687 are women, .
An interesting proof of the growth of gen-
! era! business prosperity in England is in the
fact that the British railroads disbursed dur
ing the first six months of the current year
dividends $7,500,000 in exoeos of those for
the corresponding period of 1879. ' :,
President fiayes is said to dislike the death
penalty ever since the dreadful hanging in
Washington which resulted la the decapita
tion of negro. . There is a murderer.in the
District of Columbia jail waiting to be
hanged, and it is expected that the President
will send a message from the West commut
ing his sentence. -
The Philadelphia Times puts it about right
when it says: "After all the defamation of
candidates and the petty cunning of leaders
and the waste of party money, the-' common
sense of the people will settle the presidential
question. If their considerate judgment
shall regard a change of administration aa
beat calculated to promote the peace and
prosperity of the country, Hancock will be
elected ; and if the, same considerate judg
ment shall decide agawst a change of admin
istration, Garfield will be the next-President;
but all the campaign tracts or defamatory
speeches or low inventions of professional
politicians or expenditure of money beyond
the organization an.d polling of votes, won't
change the result in a single precinct of the
It is election day in Vermont to-day. A
governor, ' lieutenant-governor and treas
urer are to be elected; also' members of
the Legislature, which will elect a United
States Senator, and members of Congress.
For governor the Republicans are represent
ed by Boswell Farnham, the Democrats by
Edward J. Phelps, and the Greenbackers by
M. O. Heath. At the last election the Re
publican ticket polled 87,312, the Democratic
17,274 and the Greenback 2,635. In the last
.Legislature there was a Republican majority
of 146 on joint ballot, the Senate standing 29
Republicans to 1 Democrat, and the House
was composed of 175 Republicans, 43 Demo
crats, andl4 Greenbackers and independ
ents. - A Republican majority of at least 23,
000 is expected to-day.
By a strange irony of fortune the shares of
the failed City of Glasgow Bank have become
a valuable property. They have become scarce
because very few shareholders have survived
the blood-letting process of the liquidation.
Every holder who has been "sold up," or has
made a compromise with the officers appoint
ed by law for the winding-up of the bank,
loses his right as a shareholder. '3 The rem
nant of solvent holders being thus enormous
ly reduced, the value of the shares which re-
main to represent the claim upon the bank's
assets becomes proportionately enhanced.
With what feelings must a notification of this
sort be read by the hundreds of ruined share
noiaers. ana by the thousands of now im
poverished persons dependent upon them.
To think, too, that the directors of this
so-called bank, just released from prison or
still expiating their offense there, should
have the questionable satisfaction of know
ing that they have actually raised the market
value of each share to 3,000.
Sentimental considerations aside, says the
Boston Advertiser,what benefit has the busi
ness man to expect from a change ? With
the advent of a new administration what un
certainties are to be removed, what burdens
are to be lightened, and what opportunities
are to be improved, which would tend to im
part more confidence to the business man,
and to promote greater commercial activity ?
In what direction is radical alteration in busi
ness conditions and relations desirable ? One
by one the restraints and obstructions have
been removed, and it is safe to say that the
basinets relations of the country were never
in a better condition, never more free from
perplexingembarrassments and the danger
of interference with established usages than
they are now. The finances, which a few
short years ago were in such a condition that
the business of the country necessarily par
took oi the nature of a gigantic . speculation,
are now firmly established on the bed rock of
a gold basis. The merchant no longer stands
upon a shifting bottom. The proceeds of his
sales no longer represent an uncertain value,
which is worth a given sum when received,
but possibly a much less amount when he
desires to pay it out. His proceeds now rep
resent money in its true sense, and not a sub
stitute, for it as variable as the changing
minds of men and a shifting policy of gov
ernment may make it.
General Melikoff's common sense method
of restoring public confidence in the Russian
Government is illustrated by the official re
turn that from the date of the military dicta
torship in February to May 1, about 1,400
students and other young men were liberated,
and 4,300 persons freed from police surveil
lance. Besides those, 2,000 youths who have
been expelled from various educational estab
lishments have been allowed readmission. It
is also officially announced that from May to
August one hundred and fifteen persons were
either altogether freed from police surveil
lance and restored to their homes from exile,
or received some mitigation of their sen
tences. Of this number thirty re-entered the
universities, and remain there at present.
One thousand six hundred and ninety-six per
sons continue under surveillance. The re
cent ukase abolishing the Third Section and
the Supreme Executive Commission is re
ceived by the St. Petersburg press with a
chorus of rejoicing. The Golos says that
Russia has entered upon a period of gov
ernment by established law. . The abolition
of the Third Section sho its that arbitrary ad
ministration has been radically condemned,
and the personal seourity of every honest
subject is rendered inviolable ; whilst the
nomination of Count Melikoff proves that
the necessity of confining the Ministry of the
Interior, now more than ever a post of the
highest importance, to a statesman who can
rise to the height of the occasion is - fully
recognised." Anothem journal exclaims
"The ukase rings out an appeal to each and
every one to work henceforth witn leariess
confidence for the good of his native land.
under the protecting shade of legality and
justice. God grant that Russia may never
again see such dark and troublesome times as
she has lived through these two years."

'The Fate of Republics," by an ex-Union
soldier who does not give his name, is a book
written for the purpose of proving that our
reriublio is in danger and is likely to meet
the fate of other .republics which have pre
ceded it. The work gives a sketch of the
causes that led to the decline of the ancient
and medieval republics, with an account of
the condition of those which are in
existence at present, by way of introduction
to an essay, upon the dangers that threaten
the United States. The author holds the
chief of these to be the growth of popery in
religion. Ignorance and communi8.ru in social
life, and the doctrine of State rights in poli
tics, and sees no. other remedy than a revival
of Biblical Christianity. The author includes

impressive in the book, which is, by the way,

Perkins' ' -Congressional District Vote Map
of the United States" is an outline map of
this country, 24x38 inches in size, showing
the State frontiers,, the boundaries of the
Congressional districts, their sizes and shapes,
and the official number of each. Their votes
in 1878; for members of Congress, are indi
cated with great care, within the boundaries
of each district, by a system of colored bars,
one inch long for each 25,000 votes, red for
Republicans, blue for Democrats and white
for the various third .parties. Marginal ta
bles confirm these records by giving the pre
cise number of votes of each party in each
district during the election of 1878. Who

D. Appleton & Co. send us the authorised
"life of Hancock." It was prepared some
years ago by his friend, the late Rev. D. X.
Junkin, D. D., chaplain in the army, and has
been brought down to date by F. H. Norton.
General Hancock himself read the proofs of
the book, and pronounces it complete and
correct. The author does not attempt to
idealize his hero. He paints him as he found
him. Hancock was not an infant prodigy, -but
he was studious and sedate, and at an
early age won for himself the distinction of
being just and magnanimous. There was al
ways a touch of chivalry in his nature, and as
a boy of nine he made himself conspicuous
among his mates as a defender of the weak.
At the age of fifteen he was called upon to
read the Declaration of Independence at a
Fourth of July celebration, and has, from
that age, evinced an interest injmblio affairs.
He organized a military company among his
schoolmates and at the age of sixteen entered
West Poinj). An excellent steel portrait of
Hancock is an attractive feature of the book.

twenty years before the public, and during

and is well known by complete or partial re

eminent directors of public education in dif
