■Timor rut ic Praplin-ira!
'Hie Democratic papers in Maiue, in tlieir
zeal, made many rasb assertions, which the
people never tor a moment thought of be
lieving. Led away by a lower estimate of the
virtue and intelligence of the people than the
result has at all justified, they went on saying
the most ridiculous things, and making the
most absurd prophecies. At the time, it was
well enough known that in due season it
would all be proved false. Hut then we were
too much in earnest to stop to laugh at these
false prophets. Since the great victory, how
ever, the laugh over these weak sayings is
not only in good taste, but highly enjoyable.
The Machias Union undertook to put Dr.
Garcolon over the course victoriously. In
that paper of Aug. 11, the editor said: “Dr.
Gareelon, of Lewiston, who until the present
year, never acted with the Democrats, was
nominated tor Congress by the Democrats of
the second district, oil the 6th inst. The
Doctor has an even chance of being elected.”
If the Doctor’s chance was even one month
before election, it got to be painfully up hill
work by the 14th ins . As the Doctor lost
his election by falling behind his competitor
several thousand votes, it is fair to presume
that this Down-East editor has been grossly
deceived by parties in this section of the
State who ought to have known a great deal
better, and very likely did know better, but
deceived this editor for effect on the Eastern
voters.
The Bangor Democrat undertook to settle
the status of Charles A. Shaw, Esq., by put
ting him into the next Congress, without the
shadow ot a doubt. This learned puudit does
not find any use for the subjunctive mood.
There is no doubt foreshadowed tor his pro
clamations. Without circumlocution he
marches straight to the point. Hear him un
der date of August 6tli: “The Democrats of
the First District have nominated Charles A.
Shaw, Esq., of Biddetord, for Congress. He
will be elected.”
An echo from the deserted Democratic
club rooms of Biddetord, exclaims when ?
Just eight days later, the Maine Standard
felt the spirit move, and forthwith proceeded
to prophecy. The number of that paper ot
August 14, in a very elaborate and fulsome
manner daubed C. A. S. with untempered
mortal1, and presented him to the quiet voters
ot the first District as one of those phenom
ena which the world sees not oflener than
once in a century. The eulogy is magnifi
cent and would make its idol politically im
mortal, but reads very queerly alter his polit
ical death.
- The Democracy of the First Congressional
District have unanimously selected Hon.
Charles A. Shaw, of Biddetord, as their can
didate for Con ress. It is an excellent uomi
iiiatior . Mr.Sliaw is known not only in his
district, but ail over New England, as one of
the most energetic, persevering and resolute
of business men, and as the true representa
tive of the wide-awake, brave, undaunted,
progressive Democracy. He is a young man,
lias been mayor ol Biddelord, and is just f/ie
man to walk over the course, and b£at John
Lynch out of time and out of sight. And he
will do it too.
i he last seen of Charles A. “walking over
the course,” was on Monday evening, 14th,
when the returns came pouring in from the
rural districts, and Portland Hashed over the
wires her one thousand majority for Lynth!
It was then that this energetic business man
felt as though however well they knew him
“all over New England,” they knew him too
well, politically in the First District to en
trust its representation to him. He remains
in private life to muse over the singularity of
a fulsome paregyrie, which in just one month
has turned to a melancholy elegy on his po
litical death.
One week later, (Aug. 21.) and the brilliant
Jacksonian, edited by the irrepressible Smart,
sent up a clarion note which rung through
the State like the voice of late. CoL Smart
does nothing by halves. So, while he puts
his petrn a pinnacle with the Appletons and
Grennells, he calls upon the party to sub
scribe lor tlie Jacksonian, “thirteen numbers
lor fifty cents.” send iu^ your fifty cents!
Ephraim puts the case home with his usual
socdolagers, and calls upon us to mark wliat
he says. We have done so, and now make a
note of it tor the benefit ot this modest proph
et, who not content with putting Sliaw on a
par with the great men ot Massachusetts, and
electing him, cails out lustily for the shin
plaslets to he sent in. What with the “Work
ing men's Advocate” of Shaw, and the “Jack
sonian” of Smart, one may well be surprised
at the smallne s ot the ltcpubiican majority
in their District. They tell into the rather
common orror of mistaking their audience*
Every sheet they issued made their cause
more hopeless. L’steu to the address to the
Jury, as made by Col. Smart:
The editor of the Maine Democrat never
said a truer word than this: “Moke head
ing AND LESS TALKING IS WANTED.” VVe
will send you the reading tor Fitly Cents—
■ thirteen numbers ol the Jacksonian.
Mr. Sliaw is the Democratic candidate lor
Congress in the First District, and be is worth
more in Congress to such a District than a
score ol emotional politicans like Lynch.
In the better days of the Kepubiicaus we
bad many such men in Cougress as William
Appleton ot Boston, aud Greunell of New
Bedford. Mr. Shaw is of this stamp, ener
getic and talented, and possesses wonderful
qualities as a business man. He will be
elected—mark that!

General Halbert E. Paine, member of Con
gress from the First or Milwaukee District of
Wisconsin, whose name is sufficient guaran
tee tor anything he may say, is the authority
lor the following incident in the life of Hora
tio Seymour. W'e extract his story ol the affair
asjtold in a recent speech:
When the news ol the fall of Sumpter was
received in this city. Governor Seymour was
stopping at the Newhall House. The city, on
the receipt ol the news, was ablaze with in
dignation, an.l Democrats and Republicans
alike burned to avenge the insult that had
been offeied to our flag. A meeting of busi
ness men, irrespective of party, was lu'ld a
tlie Chamber ot Commerce, and stirriug ad
dresses were made. Every voice was tor
war.
some one mentioned the fact that Gover
nor Seymour was in town, and it was at once
resolved to have a speech Iroin him. Une ot
our most highly respected citizens—a person
al acijua in lance ol Scymoui's—hastened to
inform him ot the intended call. He was
found in the ladies’ parlor ot the hotel, re
ceived tlie Milwaukee gentleman most cor
dially, and represented himself in the best of
health. Hut when informed that the crowd
would presently call upon him for a speech
he promptly replied that he should notre
spond. “But you must.” said his friend. “The
crowd will not take no for an answer.” I
shall not do it,” said Seymour. “I don't know
yet how this thing is going to turn, and I
shall not speak. You must tell the crowd
that I am sick and cannot respond.” The
Milwaukeean refused to tell this lalsehood,
and turned and left the “great statesman.”—
shortly after another of his acquaintance, al
“ “ peutleman ol high standing in this com
uP°n him with the same er
to“Dd Seymour in his room sick,
"*! by bls counterfeit illness,
ami left him. Sh irtly afterward,a committee
ol gentlemen called upon the Governor and
fairly dragged him out on the balcony. He
simply thanked the crowd for the compliment,
and excused himself from speaking on the
score of sickness.
The Boston Post is an ingenious sheet. It
finds "Democratic gains” in the retnrns from
the Maine election. It gets more sunbeams
from the most unpromising cucumbers than
any other paper in the United States. Its
latest accomplishment in this direction is the
discovery that the wholesale slaughter of
blacks in the South at stated intervals is due
to the Radicals. The Camilla aSalr, which
resulted in the murder of anywhere from
thirty to one hundred Radicals was solely
the fault of the Radicals themselves.—
It seems from the Post that the Radicals are
constantly plotting and scheming to get
themselves shot, stabbed and huDted with
bloodhounds. Their method of involving
themselves in the •‘difficulties” which invari
ably results in introducing a large number of
funerals in their iamilies, is a ceitarn tenaci
ty in clinging to the civil and political privi
leges which Congress has conferred upon
them. The tender-hearted Democrats, (Ull
of compassion and of the milk of human
kindness hate to kill them, but they always
manage somehow to overcome their scruples
and the best of them shoot do ro a dozen or
more ‘"nigge’s” before breakfast and after
wards wasii their hands chatting as pleasant
ly with their wives as Hotspur did alter mak
ing a raid among the Scots.
Kecrai PiSllcintu.
Miss Anna Dickinson’s novel, What An
swer ! is just published by Ticknor & Fields ,
Bostou. It is a story of the war, having for
its motif, tho wrongs of the colored race, civil
audsocial as well as political, and finding its ca
tastrophe in the draft riots of New York in 1863.
Considered merely as a novel, What Answer!
could hardly take high rank. Its plot is de
fective; its characters are not distinct individ
uals, but types of classes, and not always skill
fully outlined; its scenes are vague aud sketchy,
and its general finish hasty aud inartistic. But
the book is one which esn hardly be judged by
the ordinary standards of criticism applied to
novels. Its plot and incidents are used by the
writer merely for the purpose of illustrating
and enforcing an idea; they are in themselves
secondary. They furnish the text from which
Miss Dickinson preaches with all the elo
quence and earnestness for which she is so
well known the gospel of human brotherhood.
Her demand is for justice to the black man,
and the question to which sbe asks an answer
is addressed to the American people. The
book with all its deficiencies, is a powerflil
one, for it is full of fire aud passion, of intense
sympathy with the down-trodden and of the
holy anger of the' reformer. It is sure of an
immense sale. (Received by Hall L. Davis.)
From Ticknor & Fields we have also Cttr
Mutual Friend, being the latest issue of the
popular autograph, or Charles Dickens edition
ot the Dickens’s works. It has eight of the
original illustrations by Phiz, Seymour, Cruik
sbank, and others. This handsome edition is
now nearly complete. (Received by Hall L
Davis.)
The Half Dollar Tennyson, just issued by
Tickuor& Fields, is a happy combination of
beauty and cheapness. It has a neat, double
columned page, printed on good paper, in dia
mond type, and a pretty paper cover. (Receiv
ed by Hall L. Davis.)
Plain Thoughts on the Art of Living, by
Washington Gladden, is a collection of short
essays, originally delivered as lectures to young
people. They were afterward re-written and
printed in the Springfield Republican, under
the title, “Talks with Young Folks in a Par
son’s study," and pethaps their general char
acter may as well be gathered from this title as
from any description of ours. They treat of
such subjects as dress, manners, conversation
work lor women, physical culture, marriage,
etc., and are full of plain, practical common
sense and right feeling. (Received by Hall L.
Davis.)
Every Saturday, for this week, has an arti
