The whigs were not merely in the minority, but so discouraged and demoralized by repeated defeats that, while always ready to make a gallant fight, they scarcely felt that success was within the range of possibility. Lenders, such as no party has had before or since, were only able to hold the rank and file together by appealing to those chivalrous feelings and he reditary antipathies which no amount of misfortune could utter ly crush. 15ut even the leaders themselves saw small prospect of victory in the future. Yet when a chance was offered, the officers and privates of the old W big army were quick to see it and quick to improve it. They did not waste their strength in iiat tling with wind mills, or allow the the enemy an opportunity to re cover his lost ground by a flank movement. They saw where the popular nail was located, and without looking to the right or to the left, struck it squarely on the head and drove it horn.- in a cam paign which is still regarded as tlie most brilliant and iambus in American annals. How was this result accom plished? Briefly thus: Wheth er by Democratic mismanage ment or not it is unnecessary now to inquire, the country was pass ing through such an ordeal of hard times as had not been endur ed since the war of 181 '2. Busi ness was prostrate, money scarce, credit rotten, and. public confl deuce destroyed. All classes were suffering from a combination of commercial and financial evils which, though they could not precisely understand, they were exceedingly anxious to hold somebody accountable for. That somebody the Whitts were not slow to point out. They said to the people this: “Yes, tunes arc hard, and will be harder; prices are low, and will be lower; money is scarce, and will be scarcer; the country is sinking swiftly and surely toward universal bankrupt cy and ruin. Who is to blame? The Democrats, of course. They have been in power twelve years. They have had things all their own way. They have devised new and clumsy' schemes of linanee. They have been reck i » 4 1 . , I >. .. .. iiAii.lifneoL.' ? I Olf have tapped the public pocket in a thousand different places. They are rogues who have wrought all the mischief, and to put a stop to the mischief you must put out the rogues.” This was the sum and substance of the arguments which battered down the walls of Dem ocratic supremacy and landed Harrison in the White House. Observe that the Whigs were not stfch supreme asses as to prepare and submit in advance a plan for lifting the country out of the mud, and stake their fortunes on the acceptance of thissplau. They did not say how they would treat the patient, and thus give the op position a chance to pick flaws in their practice. They said: “The patient is very sick, but we can cure him. Discharge the Demo cratic doctors first, and wo will produce the prescription after wards.” And the Democratic doctors were discharged. It is thirty-five years since this exhibition of political sense and strategy was given. Have Demo cuits forgot it? If they remem ber it, can they not see that an opportunity's now offered them vastly superior in every respect to tlie one which the Whigs so splendidly utilized in 1*10? The Republican party lias been in ' power fifteen years. During this [period changes have been intro duced in every department of I government—changes all for the worse, none for the better. Un i dor Republican administration ; fraud, corruption, and rascality lot every kind have reached a point never attained before. They have not merely brought discredit upon the American name at home and abm-v' they have set in nioti >s which are car rying us rapidly toward national bankruptcy. The Republican party must shoulder the respon sibility of the hard times which now afflict the country. They cannot dodge it or shuffle it off. They have had exclusive control j of the governmental apparatus,and I when .he engines break down we hold the engineers responsible. It is mt tiie business of Demo crats to lay out an elaborale^pro I gramme of improvements and j remedies, and thus run the gaunt b*t of lostile criticism and ingen ious misinterpretation. Time I enough to enter into particulars when the management is in their i hands. The battle of 187G should lie fought on the simple, broad j issue of Refoioi. Reform not i only in finance, but in everything connected with the administration of public affairs. Reform which slum not merely clip tno nr.inenes of tin tree of evil, but dig down and out the roots. Fighting on this line the Democrats can win. On any other they i must inevitably lose. A Word to Suit hern Demo crats. ! _ ; From tl e Steubenville (O.) Gazette.] j Judging from tile tone of our Southern exchanges, there seems to lie an impression prevailing in ; that section of our country, that the Democrats of Ohio owe their defeat to the currency question. It is true that in consequence of that issue,and the excitement oc ase ued by its discussion, a vote uuparelled for size was polled, Jt'ie Republican vote thus being made much larger than for some years back, but of those voters who did not cast their ballots last year, the Democrats received by far the largest portion—and they were cast in that direction mainly on the finance question. But, we are asked, if this is true, why did not the Democrats re elect Alien, ! governor, as they carried the State by 17000 last year? Wo re ' ply that the Democrats were beat ' cn by those who have heretofore ! been acting with that party, at least for some years past, the principal cause for which was the so-called “school question,” the foreign horn Protestants, who had ; generally been Democrats, along with many American Protestants, voting the Republican ticket this year, in consequence of this unfor tunute issue forced into the cam paign by the Republicans. At the distance from which our Southern friends view tlie battle field, they may be led to believe that this reasoning is falacious, ' but let them travel over this State three days and they then will be ready to testify that we arc cor rect, just as the most bitter Northern Radical was almost in vuiably convinced, after residing a sl ort time in Louisiana, that in I in the troubles in that unhappy state, the conservatives were in the right. All over the state the j rule held good—in almost every ward and township there were from six to twelve men on an nv crago who had previously been Republicans, who voted the Dem ocratic ticket this year on the ! greenback question, yet who I could not have been induced to j do so by any other reason—not even on the Grant government ! corruption issue. Furthermore tl e Democrats lost comparatively few votes on this ground; those | taey did lost) were nearly ull in ' the large cities, but will certainly j not amount to 5000 votes all told, [n this city which polled nearly 2500 votes, there were certainly , not more than half a dozen votes | of this ela -s, while there were from 100 to l.r>0 Republicans who \ supported the Democratic ticket by reason of the finance question. On the other hand the Democrats i lost largely in this city on the i School question, and the same causes, producing the same result ! were at work all over the State. ; As the Cincinnatti Enquirer apt ly puts it: “The Democrats were defeated, not because ok, but I notwithstanding their currency ! platform.” In other words, it was | bigotry, not reason that defeated them. The republicans will have' the legislature the coming year They will be responsible for the Legislation. They will have the opportunity to wrestle with the Geghau and temperance laws. No matter what action they take they will lose votes, which the Democrats will pick up. Times are getting “no better” very fast. This won't hurt the Demo cratic party. Money is, and will he getting scarcer. This won’t help the Republican party. The Democrats of Ohio took a stand for “honest money” for the bond holder. With them honest money j means legal tender greenbacks. They declared against National money,‘and in favor of legal ten ders instead, and more—not less— of them. They did not declare in t*.i _ tiZ.1... 1.1 „ ... I money,” for they propose to make the greenback us good as gold by j a natural, not a forced process. | On this platform the}’ polled 292, j 000 votes or nearly 40,000 more j than they ever polled before, not- i withstanding the loss of 30,000 or; -10,000 on out side issues. They j are beaten but not discouraged. Next year they will be found de- ! fending the rights of the people [as they did this year. Then out; 1 side issues will be dead. The : people will be called to decide up- j j on the main question—whether they or the Natiohal bankers and j bondholders shall govern this country. They will then decide ! ; by a majority reaching far in the ' i thousands, as they would have! done this year had it not been for outside issues, that they,—tue : people—shall rule. Let our i Southron brethren make their1 I note of this fact and govern them-1 selves accordingly. Ohio votes first next year as she did this year. “As goes Ohio, so goes the Union.” Ohio can be easily carried by the Democrats oh the currency issue next year. On any other issue it will be difficult to carry it. The Democrats of Ohio arc in earnest on the greenback question. They mean what they say and wish it to be so understood. Their battle cry next year will be the same as this year. It is this: “More greenbacks and fewer National bank notes.” That battle cry will win. Two years ago Noyes received 213,837 votes in Ohio for Govern or and was beaten; this year Allen receives 292,264 votes or nearly 80,000 more, and is also beaten. Grant in 1872 received 11,000 less votes than Allen had oust, for him last week, and yet Grant car ried the state by 37,531. The Democrats have east for Allen more votes by 27,000 than were east for Lincoln in 18(54, when his majority was (50,000, and more votes by 12,000 than was east for Grant in 1858, when his majority was 41,(517. The vote for Allen is 50,000 in excess of any vote ever cast for a Demo cratic candidate in Ohio before. To some people this mij indicate i a falling off in Democratic strength, lint not thus will it ap pear to any sensible or thought ful person.—St. Louis Times. Tiieue is no truth in the state ment first published in the Chica go Tribune on authority of its; sensational correspondent in this city, that Mr. Hutchins has nego- j tiateil for an interest in the New j York World, and all subsequent I repetitions, modifications and en-1 largements of the story are equal-1 ly without foundation in fact.i We embrace the first opportunity | ol giving the report an emphatic denial, which is due to the pro priotor of tue World no less than to the other gentleman imagina-1 tively associated with Mr. Hutch ins in the enterprise. The World, as we are quite reliably informed, is not for sale.—St. Louis Times. -— -M* - There was a quorum in the Legislature Monday, ( The Financial Question Startling Facts i'or the People. For Federal, State, and local purposes we are more heavily tax ed than any people who ever lived. We annually pay to the tax-gath erers nearly seven hundred mill ions of money, one-third of which amount is perpetually locked up in the treasury vaults, and is withdrawn from trade. The fact is shown to be trnc by the census report, time and again asserted on the floors of Congress, without contradiction, and reiterated by the press for the thousandth time, but is never referred to by those w ho are now in favor of making money scarce. In I860 there were three dollars of money in circulation for every dollar ol taxes paid by the people. To-day the amount of taxes and the amount of currency are nearly equal—and if all the taxes were paid in one day there would be uo money left with which to carry on trade. If the country required three dollars of currency for every dollar of taxes in 1860; is it not dear that we need at least two to one now? The proportion of three dollars of currency to one of taxes did exist at the close of the war. Taxes have been increased, while the volume of the currency has been decreased two thirds, and the bankers and bondholders are “moving heaven and earth” to make money still more scarce. They now tell us that the bank vaults are full of money, and few USK. lur luaus. : jiciiunt the business of the country has lost faith and confidence in those who have charge of finances of the country. The effort to make money scarce palsies the arm of enterprise, depreciates the value of land and of all the products of labor, and causes the merchant to stand yawning and waiting in liis store in the vain hope that his goods will not still further depre ciate while lying unsold on the shelves of his dull and dreaiv store. Real estate of every description lias fallen and is falling, wheat has come down from two dollars a bushel to one dollar, and wool, which should bring eighty cents, sells for forty and forty-five. While this dry rot has fastened upou the land—while trade is dead and agriculture dying—the banker and bondholder are in clover. They treat the people as though they were fools, and the people begin to doubt their own senses. In ten years the princi pal of the public debt lias been more than twice paid, while the debt lias only been reduced one sixth. This fact means aggran dizement tor the few—and pover ty and starvation for the many. It is a remarkable fact that at the close of the war, June 150,1805, in round numbers the debt amounted to $2,080,000 and in ten years the people have paid on that debt about $5,516,000,000, or double the amount of the whole debt and 155,000,000 over, while' the debt is reduced $150,000,000. j When we talk of billions our mind ! becomes confused. Let us make this so plain that our youngest reader will understand the means j by which he is to be impoverished. Suppose that at the close of the j war the public debt was twelve thousand dollars, and that since then we had paid on that debt twenty-lour thousand dollars, ana had only reduced it one-sixth, or two thousand dollars; putting 24 thousand dollars on a debt of twelve thousand we were still in debt ten thousand dollars. Such is the debt statement, comprohen-1 sively, of the United States dur ing the past ten years. Had such wholesale villainy occurred in in England, France, or Germany, the perpetrator of the gigantic wrong would have paid the penal ty with their lives. But in this country they are not only allowed to live, but are contiuued in power to continue plunder. How long will the people submit to such a state of affairs? Is it not about time we were hurling from power such a corrupt party? Washington City Daily Telegram. On the 22d ult. Messrs. Wig 'ins & Strickland went into the manufacture of brooms, at Little liock, under tire firm style of ‘Arkantas Broom Factory.” They expect to work only a small force or a time but will soon expand dteir enterprise into any propor ions, required by the trade. It s an enterprise that should be en couraged and fostered by all, and we wish them eminent success, l'liese gentlemen are men of thor- j nigh experience in their busi ness. Now is the time to feed and hurry up the swine and make sure of the market, if it should promise best early in the season. We should bo ready always for the best that is going. What Hus to be Done. From the 8t. Louis Timeo.l There was a general feeling o regret and an agravated sense o distrust among the business mei of the West as soon as the fact o Gov. Allens defeat was confirmed It is not altogether occasioned b; uay special sympathy for the nun | or partisan prejudice in his favo i—in fact the feeling was wholb ! independent of party—but tliej ! saw in the election of Hays tin triumph of a policy that if carriet out in the financial administratioi of the government would be cer ! tain to entail immense distresi . upon the commercial interests o j the country. They felt that tin j indorsement of cousractiou ii j Ohio would be regarded as virtu ally a test of national sentiment and followed by other similar sue cesses, would make its influenci felt in Washington, and weakci | the opposition that had heretofore ; been supposed to exist among the ; members of congress to the pro j visions of the resumption act The business community is un doubtedly warranted to some ex . tent in holding these views, am ; the prospect would be a glooint one indeed had the result of tin j Ohio election been more decisive j and empliatie than it was in favoi I of Hayes. j There is good reason to believe ; however, that while the idea o illimitable inflation lias happily received a cheek, the policy o contraction is losing rather that .•ni it 1 rw* f f I'/m ■ rF 11 >111.1 4l»«i vnllU ! ©.© -© » - - -* succession of financial disaster! that is now taking place, will havi a still further tendency to briiq about a modification of those ex treme views which find their only representatives in the centres o capital and among the adherent: ! of the Money Power, who havi [ much to make and nothing to losi by a violent reduction of values.

W. S. Hanna, the worthy lectu rer of the Kansas State Grange, says that the Patrons’ warehouse at Florence, in that State, is a complete success; it holds twelve thousand bushels, stands close to the track anil does considerable business. It was started at 250 shares, at five dollars per share. Cue hundred shares were sold and $-142 collected. The citizens gave two lots and $200 to have it built in Florence. For the rest of the money’ some of the leading Pat rous became responsible by giv ing approved notes at 12 per cent.
