The Urcnt Ir inocraHc jJlumlcr The New Ago of Meant and tlic Telegraph. Jrrom (A If. T. Herald. The Demooratio flagship, bearing the broad pennant of 8eymonr and Blair, is "hard oq" among the breaker! of r-outuem reoonstrno tion. The Tammany platform on this eubjeot flatly declares all the legislation of Congress and all the reconstruction proceedings under this leginlation "unconstitutional, revolution ary and void," and General lilair, through the' Southern wiDg of the Convention, was made the Demooratio candidate for Vice President mainly because of his Brodhead letter, in which he declared that if he were President he would assume the responsibility, and compel the army to undo ita usurpations in the South, etc. Here was the great blunder of the Tammany Convention. Here was a rare opportunity wilfully and very stupidly thrown away. Upon the general issue of the shortcomings, waste ful extravagances, unparalleled corruptions, exoesslve taxations, etc, of the party in power, the Democracy, with Mr. Chase as their candidate, had the succession within their grasp. Unfortunately for the party, however, the Convention was too largely composed of the Northern JJonrbon Copperhead and old Southern State sovereignty elements of the echool of Calhoun, and the Southern wing, as before the war, held the balance of power. And eo it was that in the Tammany platform, and In the nomination of General lilair the De mocracy were made to fight over again their battle of 180'4 npon the leading idea that the War was a failure. Thus the Tammany platform and ticket were exaotly what the Republicans wanted; for they could ask for nothing better than the battle of 18G4 over again, combined with the great issue of the constitutional amendment fourteen, npon which they swept the country in 18o(i against Johnson's plan of Southern restoration. And here we are drawn to a Mobile letter published in Monday's Herald, giving some account of a conversation of Howell Cobb with our correspondent in Au gust last on the political situation. From this letter it appears that Cobb, originally a sup porter of amendment fourteen, had changed Lis mind to the most decided opposition, and (under the inspiration, no doubt, of the Tam many Convention) demanded nothing less than the "abandonment of every measure (adopted by Congress) of reconstruction and a recognition of every Southern as an equal of every Northern State." As for this amendment fourteen, "he considered it the most dangerous enoroaohmint upon the re served rights of the States of any yet at tempted by the party in power." lie thought the prospeot for Seymour's eleotion was bad that the revolution must reach its climax, and expressed a high opinion of Mr. Bennett's politioal sagacity. But the most emphatically expressed opinion of the late oonsplouons Georgia politician was this that, alter all, "the South will be, an independent repub lic;" that "Jeff. Davis truly said that although our cause is lost, the priuoiplea for which we fought can never die." From all this it will be seen that the mana- fers of the Tammany Convention and the outhern Democratic leaders are still delving among the fossils of a past age. Abandon these Southern reconstruction laws as "revo lutionary and void?" Has Congress, then, no power over a rebellious State alter disarm ing it r II not, teen tue suojugaiou tnatc, uu ita reserved rig lit 0, may go out again to-morrow, and the war was a failure. The constitu tional amendment fourteen is an enoroaohment upon the reserved rights of the States as they were before; but we cannot see how it is to be set aside except by another amendment or another civil war. It cannot be abandoned otherwise, for, with the official voucher of the Secretary of State affixed, we apprehend that it has paesed beyond the jurisdiction of the Supreme Court. ' Having made up their oaie npon theBe issues, it needed no prophet to tell the consequences to the Demooratio party and their Presidential ticket of Seymour and Blair against Grant and Colfax. The idea, too, that the South will yet be an independent republic is a fallaoy of the epoch before the deluge. Within the last, twenty years the telegraph, railways, and steamships have introduced a new testament among the nations and peoples of the earth. The old theory of a confederation of petty sovereign States is supplanted, and everywhere these new political foroes of steam and eleotrioity, together with universal education and an inde pendent press, are operating to centralization. We have one example of this in the unification of Italy, another in the unification of the North German States, and yet another in the amendments of our Federal Constitution sinoe the Rebellion against the pernicious dogmas of State sovereignty and reserved State rights; and these are but the beginnings of this new dispensation. With the telegraph the cities of New York and San Francisco are brought into immediate rapwi t, and with the railway the people of New York oity and St. Louis areas sear to each other as were New York and Saratoga fifty years ago. The splendid turnpikes radiating from the Capi tol were one suoret of the commanding power of the Roman empire; but with his railwars and telegraphs the strength of Napoleon III at Paris reduces to a bagatelle the power of Augustus. In a word, we are in the midst of a new age of centralization under these tremendous cen tralizing forces of steam and electricity, and powerful central governments embra ing hun dreds of thousands and millions of square miles of territory will take 0t!ie placed of petty municipalities and States and rickety confederations of incongruous little sovereign ties. The sooner onr Demooratio politicians, Nenh and South (but especially of the South), begin to build npon this idea the sooner will they btRYu to see daylight. Sejiuonr'a Insluceritj. From the N. Y. Timet. A man aspiring to the PreaHUnoy should, at least, be truthful and honest in his inter course with friends and the public. The frankness and sincerity of General Grant are among his qaalifioations for the office. He is known to have a mind of his own, and to ba candid and outspoken in the statement of his opinions and purposes. What he says he means; what he promises to do, everybody is Bare he will perform. Mr. Seymour, on the contrary, is an impersonation of insincerity. He was hollow and hypocritical in his posi tion as Governor during the war. While pro fessing to aid the Government, he did all he could to embarrass it. Pretending to desire the preservation of the Union, he took the Bide of Vallandigham and the traitors at the nintHnor for its destruction. If a Hunnnnnitrl t lift nbinct of the war while feigning solicitude for it3 suooess, derided it as a failure on the very eve of its triumph, and . 1 . .1 .1. ii. Las ever since endeavored 10 irustraie us re sults. His whole publio course in this re spect wears the aspect of treachery. The same characteristio 1 apparent ia Lis struggle for the Tresidenoy. He flgored as a friend of Mr. Chase's nomination, and was instrumental in defeating it. He disclaimed all iiuaira tnr v.a nvm nomination, and pro tested that he would not like it, then intrigued to secure it, and shed crocodile tears beoause his point had been oarried. He insisted upon a compromise platform before the Con vention, and endorsed a platform constructed by Rebels and Copperheads. The humiliat ing spectacle may have been occasioned by weakness, but it was weakness so near akin to duplicity that none could distinguish a dif ference between them. The last stage of all reveali the continued exercise of the quality. Mr. Seymour wanted or pretended to want to retire, and hU party managers desired that he should. He said he preferred private life, and they dis covered that the weight of the ticket exceeded the strength of the Democracy. Nothing was needed to perfect a change whloh would at once have gratified Seymour's professed wish and relieved the party but Seymour's resig nation. But he did not resign. He preferred to stick. And by way of showing how com pletely a candidate whom his party would like to skake off could sink that party in odium and defeat, he is performing a ten days' crusade in behalf of nullification aud repudiation. Of what avail is Seymour's rhetorio, when everybody feels that it comes from the lips only, and has not the remotest connection with the heart ? He has neither sincerity nor consistency. All he now says in regard to boiids and currency is flatly contradicted by his own words, spoken before the nomination. Conviction in such a oase is impossible. He talks according to the partisan requirement of the time, with not a siogle genuine feeling save that which prompted opposition to the war. He has been as treacherous in his deal ings with Democrats about the Presidency as he Las been dishonest in his discussion of the financial policy of which he is now the ad vocate. What It All Meaiis. From the N. T. Tribune. Even the emphatic voioes of the October elections have not taught the Demooratio party the real issues of the pending contest. Routed at every point of the line, they still hug the delusion that only their candidates, and not their principles, have been defeated, and at the last hour are casting about for new leaders, in the hope that when the battle is already lost they can save the field by a mere change of standard-bearers. This error may break them np forever. They are beaten, not because Seymour is of doubtful loyalty and Blair a revolutionist, but because their platform re vives the very heresies which the North fought four years to overthrow. No candidate whom they could nominate oould be elected on the Tammany plaform. The principles enun ciated in that instrument were settled once for all at Appomattox Court House. We have no purpose either to throw away our victory, or to fight our battle over again, or to put our trust in a party which was dishonorably for peace in the midst of war, and is now traitor outly for war in the midst of peace. They can didates are of comparatively little Importance in this election, except so far as the repre sent the purposes of those who put them in nomination; and if the Democracy had any chance of success on the 3d of November it would lie not in a change of candidates, but in a change of principles. In the same way it is a mistake to suppose that the Republican triumph is merely the triumph of a popular general. Many good Democrats, no doubt, will vote for Grant in spite or his principles, because they honor the man, though they are not in sympathy with bis tartv. For this, amoncr other reasons, the Republican majorities in November will be much larger than they have been in October. But we have already abundant evidence that. quite apart from personal considerations, the loval party which s'.ood firmly by the flag through the long dark days of the Rebellion has been true to its principles ever since, and would be true to them even were there no Grant to lead them on to victory in 1SG8, as he led them through the Mississippi morasses and the Virginia Wilderness. General Grant, it should be remembered, was not acoepted as the Republican leader until he had given ample proof of his thorough aocord with the Republican creed. Highly as we have honored him, liberally as we would have rewarded him, we felt that the election of this year wan to be a great contest of ideas, which must either settle or unsettle the theory of the Amerloan Government, and either complete the work of the war or half undo it. it was not a mere test 01 personal popularity, like the voting at fanoy fairs for the privilege 01 naming the prettiest gtn, or bestowing a prize snuff-box. The people were alive to the importance 01 the issue. They demanded of the Chloago Convention an honest representative 01 the loyal policy; ana if Grant were not such a representative, they would not vote for him. But the points of his polioy, which his modest retioenoe had long kept in doubt, were by this time understood. He had been the iirtt to urge a generous amnesty to the defeated Rebels, while Audrew Johnson was shrieking for the axe and the halter, and the Northern people were still lull me d by the a-sassination of Mr. Lincoln. He had insisted upon military protection for the Southern loyalists long before Congress recognized its necessity, lie had faithfully enforoed the recoiistruc'ion laws, repressed tin Rebel spirit wherever it broke out, aud upheld with all bm strength the nyal oihoers, like Mieridan, who had incurrrd the animosity of a renegade President by nn honest performance of their duty. When Orr, aud Brown, and Walker, and other prominent IielieLs came to him for advice, lie proposed to mem me self-same policy which was afterwards made the very foundation of the Republican plat form speedy reconstruction on the basis of amnesty and universal suffrage. And, finally, when the great rupture between the Presi dent and Congress was completed by the re moval of Mr. Stanton, Grant took his stand resolutely on the right side; aud so we have recognized him ever since as the leader of the loyal hosts. When we elect him Pretident on the 3d cf November, we shall do it not to re ward him for his services in the war, but be cause we think him the best man to complete the work which the war left unfinished. Uood-bye to Horace tirceley. From the If. y. jporJd. The measure ia full ! the thicken hath pipped the shell 1 the "blockheads" of the Loyal League have oilwd, "Konkx ompaxl this is more than we can stand !" Yesterday morning the indomitable Smell fungus Flapdoodle entered the field as the direct competitor of Horace Greeley. The Morning Radical will henceforth blow the trumpet dally with no unoertain sound about the waIIs of this Demooratio Jericho; and the loose livers of the Tribune, the halters betwixt two opinions, the weak-kneed, white-hatted, unfaithful watcbmtn who have basely paltered with the Eternal Smash for strawberry plants and the General Poet Uflloe, may well tiembie in their squash-quartered, troine tied, toEgu-less Bhoes I As Democrats, we can take, of course, no vivid direct Interest in this battle of the barrel-organs. As journal ists we are bound to say that we doubt the absolute suooess of Flapdoodle. Bat that Flapdoodle can easily flummox the Tri bune is clear. That newspaper, originally started in the name of several noble prin ciples naturally entitled to the honors of small oaps and double-leaded brevier, long since became the nnfragrant convenience of a joint-stock association of adventurers. The tamest enthusiasts who of old made its columns as a daily crackling of thorns under a pot, the hollow-cheeked, nre-eyed reformers who never brushed their hair or went back on a revolution, the discip'es of Fourier, of Wendell Phillips, aud of Graham, the men who hated with an equal hate roast beef and revealed religion these have louir since shullled off this mortal coil, or beeu pushed from tht-ir stools by Wall street brokers, Albany lobbyists, and Pennsylvania politi cians. No one person in the Tribune own ing stock enough to control and give purpose to its policy, and no one of its writers having force enonch of brain or will to impress him self upon its columns, the piper, like a hackney-coach, has been at the beck or who ever happened to want a lift, and, like the pig which bolted In bmithueld, has perpetually "gone up all manner of streets I" It has advocated "secession" as as inalienable right of the bouth, and "coercion" as an imperative duty of the North; it has denounced Abraham Lincoln as a time-server and canonized him as a martyr; it has abased the New York oity "ring" and glorified Orison Blunt. If it can be said for some years past to have consist ently represented anything whatever, it is the consistent inconsistency of II. G., who, having got himself kicked out of the Union League Club for balling Jefferson Davis out of prison, forthwith got himself let in again at the ser vants' gate by trying to pUBh Ben Wade into the Presidency. This sort of thing it wa3 clear could not go on forever without "riling" the lion of radi calism. It was the more aggravating that the guilty perpetrators began to wash their faces occasionally, to wear cotton gloves on Sunday, to drink lager-beer, to haunt the theatres, and generally to indicate a hankering after the del ghts of life. What Hume said of the ancient Puritans, and Macaular stole from Hume to ray it over again no better, is true of me modern radicals also. Praise-God Bare bones and his synagogue esteemed bear-baiting heathenish and inhuman, not because it gave pain to the bear, but because it cave pleasure to the spectators. The Spencers, the Sheridan Shooks, the Fentons, and other such severe moralists of the radioal party, began to loathe the Tribune as well as distrust it when they iouna 11. u. revelling in tue dance and sup ping anacreontio personals into the Herald. and trolling madrigals to the gay guitar under the windows or Lexington avenue, and desert ing the mush-bowls ot Chappaqna for the wine-bins of the MaUon Doit-e. the bean-pots of the Loyal League for the Apician board of Eeductive Copperheads in iweuty-third street. iiae climax was capped when the Tribune turned its back upon General Butler as a vulgar fellow of mean extraction, and ap plauded the nomination of a "gentleman of ancient family," a "born gentleman," a "gentleman by biooa, and breeding, and asso ciations, and position," to represent in his stead the "most pure-bloodad distriot iu America." Then Spenoer arose aud swore. and Sheridan shook the bag in which he puts all the internal revenue he can get, and Fen- ton Hung himself in an agouy upon his mat tress. The hour of Flapdoodle had struck I That greasy but gifted man is equal to his opportunity, lie has turned a somersault from twilight into dawn, lie was'an Evenina Radical while H. G. and his scribbling satel lites were oiiuniug tneir glasses together over Wiudnst s groaning tables. He will be a Horning Radical while they are yawning away the coma of the misspent night npon silken cushions. Let him have a fair field, for he afks no favors, and we prophesy that the wings of Victory will flap and the doodle of victory crow irom his columns. The Democracy Housed. From the Botton Post. What has ocourred sinoe the Ootober elec tion has done good rather than harm for the Demooratio cause, if we are to judge by the vigorous renewal by the Demoorats of their purpose to redeem the country. They are no more stirred by the unnatural shoutings of a half-beaten foe than by their untiring ca lumny, xneygo iorwara hopefully to hold up their banners, on which are inscribed the great promises of the country's future. Un faltering, HLdismayed, they breast the storm 01 noisy opposition, confiding in their cause, devoted to their faith in free government, re solved to rid the country of all forms of tyranny, and believing that such principles as theirs are sure to stand every test and trial to the tnumpnant end. The little that is yet to be overcome in order to secure victory excites to eneouragement alone. Only one vote in seven hundred and ntty in indiana. One in a hundred and forty in Pennsylvania. A reduotion already of the radical majority of 45,000 in Ohio to 15.000. A gain of three Congressmen in the latter btate, of one, and perhaps two, iu Indiana, and of two or three in Pennsylvania. The fifteen thousand radical majority in Indiana reduced to a doubtful eight huudred. In the last Presidential election the Ohio Democrats rallied eighteen thousand stronger for MoClel- lan than at the Uelober election, if they do near so well this year unio win give her eleo total vote for Seymour and Blair. These are Borne of the en rouraging facts. That the Demooracy are sun able to make a sturdy nsht Coltax him self is ready to admit; he says that this has been the severest political contest ever fought in Indiana. Pennsylvania was carried by the open importation of paid voters from New York, while honest naturalized citizens of Philadelphia, Germans and Irish, were turned away from the polls by the offioers of a radioal city government, mat government was changed in the recent eleotion, and those oitt zens will have their rights in November. The New York voters will likewise be kept at home So that, with persistent exertion on the part of the Demoorats, and by keeping their orga nization solid and strong, it is probable that Pennsylvania, on a fair poll, will oast her vote for the Union and the laws. The addresses of the several State Central Committees of Connecticut, New York, Penn sylvania, Ohio, Indiana, and Illinois testify to the new rising of the Demooracy for a final effort. The appearanoe of our distinguished eandidate himself in the field at this oritloal hour puts frsh hope nd courage into every heart. His words at the close of the campaign are so many telling blows against radicalism His masterly speeches are answered only With base calumnies, by journals whose faculties for argument are paralyzed by the overwhelming force of his plain statements and calm reason ing. Horatio Seymour just at this time is a hoet in the face of the radioal army. Well may the masses who hang on his temperate aud statesmanlike words cry out when he is done, "Thank God t we have a candidate who oan talk t" Some of the radical papers sneeringly reply to them that the offioe of the Exeoutive is not to apeak but to aot. Their partisan satire insults a free people.' It is their own usurping party that has sought to take the last vettige of constitutional power from the President, even to the extent ot preventing him from deposing office-holders who are to-day expiating their proper crimes iu the penitentiaries. They would have the Ksmui- tive neither act nor ppak. He shon d bs a mere dummy in their hands. As he should entertain no polioy, so should he have no voice. We are proud to present to th1 coun try a candidate who can show that hrj has a policy and a voice toother; while of his executive ability no certificate is needed. A week finishes the work that remains f r the shaping of the destinies of this country for a future whose length no human eye can pre- tena to measure, in that brief urns the Da- mooracy shou'd work as they never worked before; not altogether with processions anl musio, but by argument, by reason, by per suasion; with earnestness, with a devoted love for free institutions, with a zeal that refuses to give way on a single point, for the labor aud industry of the country, for equality an 1 lightened taxes, for economy aud retrench ment, lor a restored Union under the perma nent protection of law, for the latest posterity that shall rise up to bless ns. Again to the breach, then ! and this time let us carry the enemy's works I No country, free or not, can hope for a long existence with its fairest substance thus wantonly wasted and destroyed by a faction whose whole concep tion 01 11 Deny is the liberty to do what they will.
