The democracy has abandoned
all hope of success upon the merits
of its original platform, and though
it is not quite ready for the "n w {
deip:siture," it is n4,t unready for'
suhtli alliances as will tend to brli.tk
.down its opponents.
There seems to be unusn.l ;c-
tivity among democrats, not i;;
orgafizing and cons li.it:g thei
party, but in minileading tlheir weak
kneed enemies by promi.ses whicht
they intend to kee'p t., the ear while'
they bre4tk them to the hope.
It is a d.lusive hope on booth
sides. The democracy is lost if it I
depends upon its own pr;icilivs
and any republican is lost , ;lwh

What Mr. Mill demands on be- ii
half of the Asoeiation over which a
he presides is, in one respect, iden- b
tical with what Cobden said short- b
ly before his bath, ought to form 9
the basis of the next great agitation r
in England. It was Cobden's t
opinion that he whbp succeeded in ii
Iestablishing Free Trade in Land ii
would prove a greater benefactor to I
his co~untrymen than any one of t
those who brought about Free Trade
in the necessaries of life. Indeed, a
from Mr. Mill's point of view, land I
is as truly a necessary of life as 4]
bread itself. To remove all fiscal c
'and legal impediments from the d
transfer of land is'regarded by him I
and by the Land Tenure Reform t
Association as a preliminary to the v
thorough enjoyment of the untaxed I
loaf. The opponents of facilitating c
Sthe transfer of landed property are I
wont to say th'at if the cost of pur- t
chase were lessened the process of a
forming large estates would go on t
more rapidly. Yet, as the same I
persons approve of the existing ar- a
ranu'gnent through which the land
remains in the possession of a few
f Luilies, they cannot have much t
faith in the operation of freedom of
transfer acting in the manner indi
cat l. In principle, the change t
which Mr. Mill advocates has re
ceived the approval of Parliament. t
The alterations made since the I
time of SJitden in English arrange- i
me Ats of every kind can with diffi
culty be realized, far less c'mumera
ted. Alone .among the relies of a
p 1ist which mans profess to admire, I
but few woull rest:,re if they had I
the power, d, oar u recf ,rm^:l L:nd
_ Laws remain to shame the age whieh
is prou.l of its advanc3 and of its
readine s to reform.
The movement of which the meet
- ing last night may be regarde1 as
,. the real starting-point
unas ta clppearance of being fara too
,,onerful to be easily elherke 1. The
lucid go')l s'"ne an l well-ordered
i;kowledge of Sir Char'e Dilke, and
the generous enthusi,.s:l of Mfr. Au
imeron Herbert, are effe.:tive allies of
Mr. M31ill's philosophic statemanship.
If the measures brought to the no
tice of the public are extreme, the
tone of their advocates is pacific and
imoolerate. They take their stand
on justi.e, au l are in direct opposi
,tin to ho, whoil, would cý-:.is-ate

SIt will be seen from this brief re
I eay·itlation of Mr. Stephens' opia
ions that he declared his purpose
aot to aceept the situation as reso
hlately as Jeff Davis himself, andi
both of themi nadoubtedly represent
the real sentiment of the Boutheru I
rebels in regard to the reconstruc- ,
tion legislation of Congress; and,
indeed, they but reiterate, almost I
in the precise language of the New
York National Democratic Conven
tion of 1868, the sentiments of the
National Democracy, North as well
as South, upon these measures.
That platform-the last authentic
declaration of principles by the Dem
ocracy as a national organization
declared that the reconstruction
measures of Congress were revolu
tionary, unconstitutional, null and
void, as Mr. Stephens and Jeff.
Davis now do; and the whole North
ern )emocratic press, every State
Democratic convention, and all the
trusted leaders of the party cordi- 1
ally approved and sustained from
that hour to the meeting of the Ohio
Democratic convention a few days
ago this doctrine.
The effort of the Ohio Democra
cy unJer the lead of Vallandigham to
mislead the people of the North by
claiming to have abandoned the rev
olutionary platform upon which
they stood, not only through the
whole rebellion, but especially since
the New York Convention, finds no
favor at the South. Whatever else
may be laid to the door of the rebel
chiefs, hypocrisy is not one of their
vices. They are bitterly oppose!
to the whole series of reconstruction
measures, as their Northern allies
have taught them to le, and they
:o not scuple to declare their pur
po)e to get rid of their, in the quick
ecit possible time, by the use of the
most effective means. The South
ern Democracy are a unit in oppo
sition to the "new departure" fraud,
and they will not conceal their views
even to strengthen the hands of the
Northern Demtcracy. If their time
serving allies are willing to wear the
old clothes of the Republican party,
they are not.
Thus far, therefore, the Ohio
movement has been a failure. It
has destroyed all hotpe of a u:iited
Detuocrai'y in 1872, and with it all
chance of a Democratic victory, un-I
less, besides receiving the unanimous
approval of the Northern Democra
cy, it lead to_ a division of the Re
publican party. But we already
have the proof hi the voice of disaf
fection and threats of rebellion that
conim up to Is from the Di m,'entic
press in every Northern St tte, that
so fad o the "new departure"
promoting the harm':ny of the De
mocracy North. it is proving a very
dangerous aunddistraeting qurstion,
and a source of fat:d divisions and
weakness, rather than union and
.strength. Even in Ohio it is said
f that a ni:mjorily of the Dcmoeratic
pap:rl)' bitterly denounwe the m')ve
i. mnt as L sacritier, not only of all
.their professions, but of their prin
cil)!es also.
In abandoning their old and well
Sundlrstoo d llatrornl of princilples,
and deciding to adopt the whole
series of Renlblican reconstruction
measures, the "new departure
)Democracy have failed already in
two of the purposes they hoped to
accomplish-secure the approvl'
and co-operation of thie Southern
I rebel Democracy and unite the par
ty North.
And their only hope of surccrss
, now rests on aBcomplishing their
l:ast schenme, which is the divisioun
Sof the Replublic:m party. Their
Ssuccess in carrying out this p:itri
otic lorpose can only 1e known by
Sthe result of the election of 1872.
SBut it requires neither a prophet t,
lpredict that it will prove a still
Smore ignomious failure than the
Sother two devices already have.
The hope of its success is base.l up- I
Son the opinion the V:allandigh:unr
Democracy have formted of the in
Stelligence, honesty; and patriotism
Sof the people from their experience
t and observation among the Demo
Scracy. It is not only probable, but
quite certain, that the next Demo
Scratic canldidate for President will
e receive the votes of such Republi
1 cans as put on their principles for
the gain they ruight bring.
f But there is no doubt that all in
1 telligent honest, patrietic Republi
can will act with the Rclublican
Sparty in 1872 than it is that
Sthey stood by the country all through
jthe rebellion, as well as by the Re
Spublican men and measures in 1864
i and 1866. Whate~er Mr. G(zr.s's
Sopinion may be they know that the
S"new departure" movement is ,
- gros fraud, intended to deceive the
I Norfbern people, and to seeare vo
.twrs under false pretenses. The
