It is lamentol.le. the depth to which a great man will degra.le himself, in hi bonger for ofIiJ. For yearn Salmon P. Chase fought in the Abolition ranks, wherr there wag little hope that the party would erer amount to more thnn a me:e hand fall. Daring those yearn, no man would bave believed tint Chase would ever be come such a demagogue as to batter principle for place. Bat the party grew in strength and trinmphed, and with it triumph increased Chase's greed for office. Having faileil to reach tho Presidency through the favor of his own patty.' he bas abandoned it and its princtpleii. and is bidding for the support of the an cient and mortal enemies of his party. We bave -rumors of a third party movement, witlr Chase 'as its candidate for next President; and agents are sent lo the South, to organ's the rel-el.ele- rnent as the Chase natty. Chase himself has written a letter, insulting the mem ory of the Union dead, by expressing himself in favor of strewing flowers over Ibt graves, and perpetuating tne memory of, the brave men who fought to destroy Ibe nation. Chase a clorv once was id having been presented with a silver pitch er by the negroes, for defending their rights; now, in his greed for the Piesi- dency, be proposes to honor the memory of mon who died in the attempt to de stroy tbe American Government, in the interett of nrgro slavery. Did ever man fall lowei? We have read a good desl abont the disintegration of tbe Republican party, and tbe necfbsity for a new party. That if all cant, ottered by tbose who have no sympathy with the Republican patty. Tbe party, il it is true, needs purifying; bat its mission is not yet accomplished. It yet has to'establish on a firm basis the great principles involved in the rebellion. "flfe victory has been won in the Geld, hot it will be fruitless until the issnes de cided by arms are put in shape of per manent law. All who talk of disiote gration of the Republican party, and of tbe necessity for a new parly, whether Judge Chase or tbe smaller fry, are doom ed to sink into the disgrace aud insignifi cance that bat fallen npon tbe Democrat ic party.

Denth afiUv IV-wt lteTolutloHarj Vetera u. The last of that noble band who fongbt in the war of American Iwlepen if nre, hag just died in Nuckolls ConMy, Ne braska, at the advanced age of 113 years. Oar informant, who visited him a few week befoie bis denth, gathered a brief b story of his eventful career. The name of thin veteran wan Oly Swahi'li. lie Was a native of Hew Cassel. in Germany, nnd after the war. 'filled in Shenandoah County, Virginia, where he resided cntil the breaking ont of the rebellion, when be removed to Nebraska. Daring tho Revolution, be fonht nnder Washington, and was for a short time a companion of the Father of his Conutry, end was attached to hie Body Gnard. It happened in tlrs vriy : On Christmas night, 177G. Washington crossed the raging Delaware, and surpris- ed the Hessians-at Trenton. In the fierce Ubarge. Washington ro.Ia down a lies- stan soldier, who fell prostrate beneath his horse, and lying on his back nnder the General, " fonght like a cuss." He was subdued, and taken in charge by Washington's Body Guard, and remain ed with it throughout the day, attached by a eh in, as all the other troops had their hands full of prisoner. That cap tive was Uly Swabach. Uly said that he fought so desperately, from the fact that be religiously believed the Ameri cans would eat Urssians. Tbe Elector of Hese Cassel had sold him to England for one dolltr; and as it was pretty well understood that the American- troops were almost'famished, bo supposed that he would make about as cheap a break fast as they could get. Uly said it never occurred to him to become a Revolutionary Patiiot, until ho heard that Daniel Bakeman, the last soldier of the Revolution, was dead. lie came over in the same regiment with Bakeman, and was taken prisoner in the same battle; therefore, he saw no good reason why he should not also become a last soldier of the Revolution, and draw a pension. Indeol, an eminent member of the United States Senate bad stipula ted, for a certain per centage, to seenre him a pension at the next session of Congress. Uly Swabach is supposed to bave been the oldest Free Mason in the United States in fact, he did not remember tbe lime when ha became one, and there was no record of the fact in any of the Lodges. 1 m i. - JjAY ItEPBESESTATios. The voting going on in the Methodist Episcopal Church on this question, results in over whelming majorities in favor of the pro position, in almost every instance. A short time ago, that veteran Presbyterian organ, the New York Observer; admitted that tbe Methodist Church was the only one capable of successfully combatting the Church of Rome. It is worthy of remaik, that the Methodist Church does not attempt this fight by aping and adop ting the practices of tho Church of Rome. It subjects its membership to no spiritu al tyranny and terrorism, and it gives the people as well as the priesthood a voice in its councils. The Methodist Church adopts lay representation, and it makes no bigoted and senseless war upon t-ecret benevolent societies. tW The king of Bavaria, kindly per mitted Docl. J. C. Ayer to have a copy taken of Rauch's celebrated collossal atatue of Victory, which "belongs to the Bavarian crown and stands at the en trance of the Royal Palace at Munich.

Josl Mooly. of Linn County, hiving been annonnred as one of the Chaplains of the Fourth of Jaly celebration to-be held on the fifth, tikes occasion to demnr. He is partly right. It is held by the Christian people of America, tint the hand of God was clear-ly-rcaiifesi in the Declaration of Inde pendence and fhe war for American free dom. Then, where is tlie sin in celebrat ing the goodness of God on God's Dijt Bat there iirgood argument on the other aide. Fourth of July Celebrationa are chitflv a round of drunkenness, carou'al and fi-hting. As usually conducted? they are a disgrace-to God's Day, or any other day. But we let Moody speak for himc!r: I shall take no part in any such hy pocritical parade. I love my country and the Fourth of July loo well, to de scend into anr burlesque upon them. It is lime the American people put away ita sham celebration nf the fifth or third, and not like a nation of coward skulk "about the nutposta of onr national holi day, bnt come np like trne worshippers of Liberty, and let their hearts go ont in praise of tbe best deed nf the rnnntrr dnno on thi Fourth nf Jalv. 1776 II appears to me that if God r'j'iices at anr one act nf men. more than another, it is when our nation celehrates the. F.inrlb of July, come npon what day of the week it may; and if the devils in hell ever hold jubilee, it is when we play F.inrth on some day uhich is not tbe Fourth. I have seen little, children with a sat of small dishes, play housekeeping, and thus on the coming third and filth of July, a whole nation of babes will play patriot-' ism. The wise will look each other in the face and tnh, the foolish will shoot their fire-crackers in dead earnest, and be none tbe wiser or better for it." t3T "Where ia Drake S. T. 1860 X?" We bave heard this question asked many times, and for all we knew for a year past he might be dead. Recently, in New York, we called at bis L iboratory in-Liberty St., and there found this gen tleman barricaded behind a tremendous pile of boxes, distributing fnnds lo a Sun day School Committee. Oar business was to secure en advertisement. He said: "My dear sir, what is the use of ad vertising the Plantation Bitters? They sell better now than when I advertised at such enormous expense, and now I bave not made a contract for a year. I bave all this amount to give to the poor. To satisfy the Press, however, who have al ways been my friends, I think I will give you a little something to do again, for I have improved tbe Bitters greatly, and it may be well to have yon let the people know it." And so be ran on in a happy. cordial, appreciative manner, showing us the wonders of his place and the cords of certificates. Everything is on a magnifi cent scale, and is done with ueitness and promptness. While there we saw at least forty orders come in for these cele brated Bitters.

The Atchison and Nebraska Road and the Nemaha Valley Road have entered into an agreement to consolidate, and are now perfecting arrangements lo that end. The proposition subscribing the aid of Richardson County to the Nemaha Val ley Road, compels it to run to or near the Misscnri River, near the month of the Nemaha.
