We all agree that the Democratic party has no high aims, no patriotic intentions; its purpose seems to be simply to get back into power: and the only plea which can make its existence excusable is that there is so much looseness, vulgarity and selfish ness among the managers of the party which roles the country, that it may pay to keep up a political organization for the sole office of chronic and interminable opposition, 'i bis is the national impression about the 'Democratic party, and it is the truth. But ■ our impressions about the composition of the party need, we think, some examination and revision. The common view is that it -is composed of selfish demagogues, disagree able village malcontents, and "the Irish vote." Where we do not think of indivi dual Democrats, and just summon before -our minds a Democrat—the typical Demo crat—half a glance suffices to satisfy us that there is something bad about the whole stamp of him, something ..in his style of thought and speech essentially' mean. But let us not be content with this impression. It must be remembered that the aggregate Republican majority in the United States is hut 40,000 out of 5,000.000. Taking the Irish vote at the largest possible reckoning, there should remain an immense number of the native -voter* of the Democratic ticket who, it is to be' hoped, are better than the typical Democrat. A State standing so high as Connecticut for wealth and intelligence has the two parties almost evenly balamied. We wish now to ask who are Democrats; to examine the composition of the party, and to see if there he any among them who may make material for supporters of reform Can they he of any service against Tweed and Murphy, the Tammany frauds, the civil service vulgarities find abominations ? or must they remain to the end of the chapter in American polities the sons of Belial and the children of darkness 1 For some of them we think there is hope. The managers of the Republican party organiza tion do not believe it. or at least do not desire to believe it. They are like the old lady who said: "The Universalists expect that all will be saved, hut we look for better tilings." The Irish are the most conspicuous, fun damental amis inevitable members of the party. The first Irish immigrants were, no doubt, attracted by the name, and they found it what its name indicated, the real Democratic party of the country. Each successive generation of immigrants went where their fathers had gone before them. They could not be said to have belonged to the party, for, of course, they had no opin ions : they huddled together iu it by the * common gregarious instinct. The fact that the Republican party seemed to be the Know-Nothing party reiuspired with a new idea, helped to perpetuate their opposition. Autagonism to their rivals in the field of labor, the negroes, finished whatever re mained to he done. It is certain that the Irish immigrants will continue to be Demo crats during the lifetime ol the Democratic party—perhaps during the lifetime of any party called by that name. The native Americans who composed the partv before the war were acted upon by two classes of influences. Upon many the older and purer enthusiasm of the party still exercised its spell. People who only know the name of Democrat trom its recent associations, can not conceive what that name meant to men ■who were hoys when Andrew Jackson was President. To us, as we see it on the printed page, the word has an expression sinister and forbidding. To them its syllables rep resented liberty, simplicity, purity, hope tor mankind and the belief iu the devotion and competency of the people. What America was to the world the Democratic party was to America. Some one told General Jackson that a distinguished Ger man traveling here had remarked to him that all the intellect and culture of the coufttry seemed to he on the side of the Whigs. "You should have told him," ex claimed Jackson with ire. "that all the vir tue and integrity of the country was upon ours." Democrats nowadays do not take ■quite so high a tone. Were Pendleton or F ernando Wood to make such a speech, each would lau^h at the other. There are at the North a great many peo r:nt who relied upon the South for'trade . and employment. Our merchants had their purchasers all over that country. They and the manufacturers reaped great profits from* the want of ready money at the South, and the large prices the plauters ■were willing to pay for credit. They knew tneir Southern customers, and liked them. From childhood habit had used them to the idea that over a large part of the Union men were bought ami sold. The constitu tion was said to acknowledge the existence of slavery, and they revered the constitu tion. They revered the Union, and tiie abolitionists they regarded as the enemies both of the Union and the constitution. There were two passions which patriots felt | in that time—the old passion for the Union, and the new passion to purge the country of the imperfection of slavery. Men were Democrats or Republicans as one or the other of these sentiments predomi nated in them. Both sentiments were no ble. The man who loved the Union so en tirely that he dreaded the agitation of any question that might iu the slightest degree endanger it. did not seem to himself or to his family d very terrible person. If he had personal or commercial relations with the South, or if he were a Democrat by educa tion and association, these things made it all the easier for him to believe himself the only pure politician iu America. Secession came, and the winter of 1800 and 18C1 found us pretty.much all Demo crats. Some of the States, modified their fugitive slave laws; the position of the country seemed to he that everything must he sacrificed to the Union—which was just the position of the Democrats before the war. Very few people yet contemplated the possibility of war, or * believed that we would or could invade the Southern States and compel them hack into the Union. And had we kept on feeling in that way, we could not have done it. Cut suddenly out of the clouds there fell epon the hearts of men a joyous enthusiasm, an impulse to defend the Union to the last, and the be lief that we could do it successfully by force of arms. This sentiment was a sur prise to the very men it aroused. But it took all hearts by storm; the sweep of the impulse was irresistible; none, not even the Democrats, could withstand it. They either said nothing or they fancied that at the end of a ninety days' skirmish the South would return, that we should shake hands, and love each other better than ever. The most patriotic and, we suppose, the_ worthiest of the Democrats made up their minds that the Uuty ol the hour, or the year, or the decade, was to crush the rebellion, and such substantially came over to the Republicans. But as tlie com bat deepened, anil successive Bull Runs taught us their hitter lessons, a large por tion of the old Democrats began to draw themselves apart. They believed we si ould never beat the rebels, and, with inconceiv able lolly, they imagined the possibility of a peaceable settlement of. our differences. So soon as the wedge was entered, the old habits of thought and the old associations were too strong for the fresh ideas of the war. As the South w;is again and again successful, the cause of the North became more and more identified with that of abo lition. Necessary violations of law fur nished the Democrats with grievances. The public lost patience, and began to call them bad names. This, of course, has in tensified and embittered their hostility. The vitality the party has exhibited since is not at 'all difficult to explain. Of late many things have come to pass to make it easy to see how any man who was a Demo crat during the war should have been tm intenser Democrat alter the war. There has been something in the general intent of the controlling power of the country to fill any conservative with disgust, anil to root iu him a heartier satisfaction with himself and a profounder contempt for his rulers. One recent principle of the Repub lican party may be fairly formulated as fol lows: to break the law is a commendable thing if you have a good reason, an excusable thing if you have a good pretext. We passed the fifteenth amendment by readmitting into the Union a few rebel States on condi tion that they should accept it. The inci dents of Andrew Johnson's impeachment— the construction of the oath to vote accord ing to the "law and the testimony," as per mitting Senators to vote as they thought best fur the interests of the country; the visiting committee who came tit expostulate with Senators sworn to vote according to' the "law and the testimony; - ' the clergy who came to pray with tliein; "the avowed intention of the ' Republicans to put out Johnson in order to make way for Wade, who was to use the civil service to elect the next President, and so "save the country" for the twentieth time—all these proceed ings are so outrageous that they now' read more like farce or burlesque than history. If we did not know what great things the Republican party has done, we should won der how it survived such a record. Such the Democratic of it a record. Such was the Democratic party of the North during and since the war. If we re member with any gratitude the 500,000 sol diers who perishe,d in the struggle, we can never consent that the party which was sneering, dabbling and hindering while they were fighting shall in us old form and character a^aiD come to the front. But in ease the field of politics breaks up and re adjusts itself, is there any portion of the Democratic party which we can turn to good account in the formation of a national party of reform l We all of us know indi vidual Democrats who are very nice peo ple. They are spine of them good husbands and good fathers; they pay their debts, are often religious, etc. Yet taken together they go to make up this dreadful Demo cratio®)arty. Eliminate from a respectable Democrat his Democracy, separate him from his evil associations, and we believe you can make of him a useful citizen in the new era of our polities. Cater is paribus, an old Republican will be a better reformer than an old Democrat. In constituting the new Reform party we must rely mainly upon what has been the great, enduring, patriotic, heroic, national party of the country. Hatred of slavery and hatred of robbery may he the qualities of men slightly differing in their mental constitu tions, hut they both have at the root the love ol justice and of publio purity. The fact that a man did not rightly discern the duty of the hour in 1884 is prima facie evi dence that he will not discern it correctly iu 1872. Yet the qualities which fit men to act intelligently iu the two periods are not identical. Sympathy, indiguatiou, love of jierfection. made men Republicans iu 185ti. I lie mass ol that great Reform party which is hereafter to rule this countrv, or at least to endeavor to purify it, will be composed of meu who unite these qualities to others not necessary to the patriot uf 1856—a clearer discernment and firmer texture of mind, tho knowledge of a rogue or demagogue at sight, aud the hearty de testation of him and his kind. It will hap pen, however—it has happened—that men who had heart enough to set their faces against slavery, have been so demoralized by laissez-faire aud loose impressions that they may not see that civil service reform is imperative, or that it is any wrong for a Cabinet minister to break the law a little. W e can easily conceive of a man whose in stincts led him aright on the negro question saying upon the doctrine of rota tion in office that every dog should have his day; we can conceive ol him indorsing as most original and statesmanlike the remark of Mr. Morton, that "we have, upon the whole, the best civil service iu the world." Down in his heart such a person believes Tweed not a had sort of fellow. He thinks that it is very well for Mr. Tom Murphy to get his $50,000 a year (fie would take it, he knows, if he could get it), while Mr. Clinch does the work aud is content with a twelfth of the pay. He believes a good politician to he one who "sticks to his friends," aud he thinks these new-fangled people are making an unnecessary fuss about things with which he has been long familiar, and which nobody ever before thought of find ing fault with. On the other hand, a man whose instincts, interests aud prejudices did not incline him to espouse the cause of the slave, might have a respect for techni calities and restrictions, a love of order, and a wholesome detestation of public thieves which would make him excellent material iu the work of reform. Morse Memorial Service*. A Washington dispatch of Sunday says: The preparations for the memorial ser vices in honor of the late Professor Morse are completed. The speakers are Senator Patterson and Representatives Fernando \» ood, Garfield, Cox, Voorhees and Banks, l.ev. Dr. Adams, of New York, pastor of the church which the Professor attended in that city, will open with prayer, aud Dr. heeler, the pastor ot the church which 1 rotessor Morse attended at Poughkeepsie, w ill pronounce the benediction. PresbW^T an,i . the Cabinet, the Vice President, judges oi the courts aud other prominent officials, have been invited. The Governors ot States whft can not he present m person have designated proxies to act as vice presidents of the meeting. The See " tary of the Navy has complied with the ap plication for music by the marine band, anil there will be vocal music by the Choral So ciety of \\ ashingtou. Numerous letters aud telegrams Lave been received, some, of them statin^ that similar meetings will be held on Tue*dav evening in several cities. Springfield has one sharp shopper. A woman, after buying a spool of thread at a dry goods store on Monday, insisted on having the clerk unroll and measure it for. fear it wouldn't hold out 200 yards. REWARDS.
