Fkllo*' Citjzknh: The rise of politicul
parties iu this State, from the tiuie of it* ud
mission into the Union, uiay be interesting to
the gene"4' public, auil especially interesting
to mrmlBTs of the late Unioti party. While
we were the integral part of Utah Territory,
and even after the creation of the Territory
of Nevada, our people were not divided by
party liuea. In the first general election after
the creation of the Territory of Nevada, there
were four candidates for Congress, none of,
shorn run upon declared party divisions.
The election resulted iu the choice of that
able and patriotic gentleman, Judge Cradle- i
baugh, who, after serving his country well
upon the tloor of Congress, added fresh lau
rtds to his fame by resiguing bis seat and gal
lantly leading a regiment at the siege of Vichs
burg.
iWien the civil war broke out, there were I
three |Hilitical parties iu the United States. [
Oue, called souietiuies the Itiichauan mid
llreckiuridge party, holding to the doctrine I
that slaves, being property under the Federal j
Constitution, coulil be liebl as such iu the
Territories?the commou property of the I
Union. Th? second, the lb-publican party,
held to the opposite doctrine, that Congress,
lieiug the guardian of the Territories, had the
power under the Federal Constitution to leg
islate slavery out of any Territory of the
Union. The third, called the Douglas party,
held that neither of the former were right in
principle, nor iu their construction of the
Constitution, but that the people of the Ter- j
riturics, in their own sovereign capacity as
owners of the soil, had a right to adopt or re- >
ject sluverv in u domestic institution, as they
saw tit.
When tlie war commenced Wtween the Na
tional Government and the revolutionary
States of the South, a party commenced form
ing in the State of Nevada, composed of ull
the dements of the uhl |Militieal parties old
Democrats, old Whigs, old Abolitionists, and '
Douglas Democrats and Itepuhlicans. This I
heterogeneous party was formed for the sole
ami exclusive purpose as was distinctly stat
ed in the newspapers of the time favoring it
organization, aa well as froin every stump
within the lioriicr* of the State- of aiding the |
Administration of 1'rcsident Lincoln in put 1
ting down the rebellion, and holding the Ter
ritory, and afterwards the Stale, firmly within |
the Union. This party being a party coin- I
posed of elements of all oilier parties, al- |
though sustaining a Republican Administra
tion, Upon the ft'ilr ivcue ftf fhr riril triir, re
fused u|>on any and all occasions to adopt the j
llepuhllean liamo for the party, although
often urged to do so by tbe ltepublieuiis w ith- |
in the party, giving its a reason for not doing (
ho that their principles on all other political ;
subjects than the safety of the Union differed I
with those of the ltepnbliean organization.
The name given this party of associated par
ties was, for that reason, the plain and simple ,
ouo of "Union party." Under that party
name the party, formed for the purpose of help
ing to save the Union, and nothing else, con
ducted in this State the political campaigns of
the rehelliou with great success, out-voting
the so-called Democratic party of that time
by an average vote of about two to one.
It being supposed by many that the original
Douglas Democrats of the Territory ami new j
State outnumhered any other brunch of the
party, not even excepting the Itepnblirnu ele
ment, wo took occasion in our speeches from
the stump during the political campaigns of
the war of the rebellion, ami in the following
Grant campaign, to contiutiully impress upon
the minds of the Douglas men of the I'nion
party that we irrre not /fc/ntWbvi,.* because we |
aided a Ib'piiblican Administration in sup- !
pressing the Southern revolution; but upon
other national issues we stood as wo had al
ways stood before.

ami disaster, tr?-tnl?l? ? I at I lie Cut urn, it wan 1
ruimiilornl, I>y the original Abolitionists ami
Republicans, lis well an by Douglas tur-ii, of
great and vital importance to constantly re
poat in the ears of tl?c Douglas men, which |
they know an wi ll as tlicinselvi a. that we wore
hIiII Democrats, ami not Republicans Union
iiioii ami Uniou Democrats; hecaiiKe it whs .
much fi arcil at lime* that moiiic of the Doug
las men were tampered with ami wore growing
reativo ami might holt the party, tlma throw
ing the State into the hands of the Secession
ists ami their friends.
The civil war being elided ami the general
election for President coining on, which re
Hiilted in tlio election of (icncial (Irani, it
aeeiii'sl in Motnc iMirtioUof the Stateof Nevaila
that the former Union Dcmocrata were get
ting shaky ami tireil of voting for the men
thai in tnatly instances they had heen forced
to aii|i|iort through the necessities of the re
hellion and in order to help Have the Union;
w hich men they began to aee were corrupting
the party, and using the Union Democratic 1
vote to sustain in power and place, and plun
der, a narrow and prescriptive clh|iie of
fanatical llcpnhlicaliM, carpet-hag lookers,
money ring men, and Oonistock lead thieves.
It was ilieti thought necessary l>y Home,
who helieved those complaints to lie mainly
just, to urge the superior national necessity
of standing together otieo more in order to
elect (lenernl (Irani as (he man of men for the
nntiomil crisis, whose military ami general
popularity ami firmness were supposed neces
sary lo heal up the wounds of war ami hold
with a drill hand the scattered fragments of the
Union together.
In that campaign, notwithstanding Iho
strong inclination of leading Republicans lo
ItrfoUiUmnhr us, we appeared as of old in this
State a "Union pnrty," sup/i?rfla<7 lirnrrol
(/rani iijum ii Satitni/il Union filntform, not
iinrjfr n JVufuuud Union mimr for I If fi'irh/,
It appeared in that campaign as well as
others thai a portion of the Republican rle
? ? ? ? ? -? ?? i ?ir>iT>?&gi^i.tfH.ltai?
incut of our common putty vi? determined to
iuono|H>lizc nil of the glory of political suc
cess, pust and present, and to disown the old
alul tried name of "Uuiou" party, und l?y a
trick of legerdemain and a slight-uf-hand
movement insert the name of their own an
cient party in its stead; thus stealthily trans
ferring the original Democratic element of the
Union purtv into the ranks of the old ltepuh
lieau organization.
This effort many Douglas uieu, including
myself, resisted, by insisting lieforu thu peo
Ide that ours was u "Uuiou" party, and not u
tepublicau party. It a few of our Itepuhlican
brethren of that day had have hud their own
way they would have driven the main lesly of
tho "Union" Democrats out of the "Union"
party, have defeuted (teueral (iraut in this
State, and have handed the State over to Sey
mour.
The final close of the civil war having been
reached under 1'resideut (iraut in the past
two years, the reason for the formation of
"Union" party in Nevada has disappeared.
The cunning managers of the domiuuut Ite
puhlican element of the party, knowing this,
uud having grown audacious upon the public
plunder, tlicy have throwu oil their former
disguise and now boldly and openly drop the
national and State name of the party and re
baptize in the "Republican" party, both from
the nominating stands of conventions- the
resjMinses of candidates?the declarations of
Senators -from the stump and the columns of
the Keiiublicau nress.
An thu national issues of parth s during and
since the war are hilried, the old veteran Ite
publicnns of Xevad t before the war. with their
lately arrived recruits, h ive determined, ill a
ranijmixn which is purely tor the spoil* of of
fice, and spoils incident to oihce und party
success, to dm;; up again the dead corpse of
the rebellion, and in mimic warfare by night
hurl their (stintless spears, and Hash their
unUiinitil swonls iu the nir; with eyes biasing
with the Vengeful hale of battlefields they
lull* itot seen ! to the music of ilrum and fife ,
which they ?//</ a>>( fiJImc ! They dance and
yell by night and by day throughout the lami,
for the sole and deadly purpose of frightening
Democratic children uml horrifying and scar
ing the Douglas Democrats into attain sup
portiug their riug-stri|>cd, thimble-rigging,
bloated spoila party.
Those of us of the "I'uiou" party of this
State who arc not Kepuhlicaus, ami never
were, are uow to be denounced as hoIt'rs.'? I
principles or uo principles?if wo do not fol
low in funeral procession the black plumes of
death? the colliu, the shroud, the liearse, aud

Uolters ! bolters ! who are the bolters ? Is
not the entire mission of thu "Union" party
of Nevada terminated? Is not the Union i
saved ? Are uot the final measures of its sal
vation aud of adjustment passed by a two- I
thirds vote of the Stale aud iucor|Hirated iu j
the Constitution ? Is there anything left of !
the late civil war. aud Its parties, so far as dif- j
ference.s upon lifimj principles ale concerned ? |
Is there anything of that now to run upou
except its recollections? If we run tbcu upon
memory and recollection*, w hat icurrior* of
the lb-publican party of Nevada have an tiered

with cunning artitic ? made a Republican party
without our consent and practically they lailgii

to )o lp save the Uliiou.
Who authorized theiu to change the I'uion
party into a lie publican party? Were the
noughts men consulted when it wnsdemnnded
of them to continue to vote with Republicans,
for Republican nominees, under a constantly
repeated Republican name? Were we Repub

that Congress bad a right to interfere with the

Union party waa dropped? Are we fools, and
are we blind?
To run un Independent ticket requires more
time than we have. The Democrats of this
State ure responsible for none of its misman
agement. They are not responsible for the
corruption iu high and low places which lias
existed iu the State since its very foundation,
but which ire. Union men, assisted by our
votes in covering up from the public eye,
through the necessities of the rebellion. Shall
we trust the Democrats as a new party in the
State, in their pledged efforts ut reform, or
trust the Republicans 1 have described?
As one of the Douglas Democrats who vot
ed for aud now sustains tier). Grant in bis
administration, and one w ho has |>erformed his
part of the contract in the formation of the
| Union party, and by voice aud by vote has
steadily maintained the Union ticket nntil the
purposes for which that party was formed
have been accomplished, and desiring political
reform of all kinds and in all places, and a
[ new set of tuen iu power in the State, I call
upon the old line Douglas men to come for
ward and let the sun of prosperity once more
shine upon our State; help cleanse the- Augean
I stables of Republicanism aud upset the tables
of tlin "Ring" und money-changers in their
own temples, by voting in November next the

do a* follown:
Sfcfo/fwi, I hat we arc infaxornfthe perpetuity of
the Federal t'nfon, ami that ve w ill rrii.it any prop
osition looking to it* dissolution; that our nominees
shall stand pledged, if elected, to carry ont and fulfill
itInUuk laws, whether organic or statulory, until
changed by the proper authority.
/f'tolml, I'll at wo denounce the present tariff as a
gigantic robbery of the labor and Industry of the
country; that it is solely designed to advance the in
terests of a few thousand monopoliics; that it should
no longer be submitted t< ; that no candidate for pub
lic office is worthy of support who is not in favor
of a low revenue tariff, w hich clearly approximates to
free trade; aud that in the arrangement of any reve
nue tariff, all the necessaries of life should be abso
lutely free from duty.
H'tnlrrd, That the internal revenue ay stem of Hie
I'lilted Mates Is oppressive In Its exactions; that to
impose burdens on one class of cltixens. or one branch
of Industry, to build up another, is an abuao of the
taxing jH.vrer; that the odious income tax. which can
only be efficiently collected by private and family
visitation and im|"ulsluoii by government officials, is
iu its nature repulsive to American sentiments of
personal liberty, and une?pial in its operation, aud
I hat Instead thereof we favor the constitutional mode
of collecting revenue by the apporthuunent of the
saiue among the several Mates of the I'niou.
K'sol ml. That we are op|>oa<xl to the system of na
| tiousl banks, aud demand the immediate r? ja alof the
law creating tlu-tu. uml (in place of the notes of such
' banks) the substitution of treasury notes of the
I (Jliitrd Stales.
IfrtolrsJ, That we are in favor of funding the na

reasouahh ran* of interest, for all other forms of In
debtedness, and the laithful payment ol such bonds
! *<? ordiug to the terms o! the same.

of economy of the public resources, and a rigid ac

/{rn4rrtl. That we will resist to the utmost the ag

Asiatics, who cau not nssiniilate with us in social or
