We must do our pari, and' pur part now is to take caro that tee poU ettty vote on November 3d tchich c Jid'vn Oc tober 13'A, and many nur. . We shall be joined by thousands of t Democrats who will vote for Grant and we shall have thousands less to vote against us because, on the 3d of November, imported Votera, who were poured into Pennsylvania, will not be there. We inut put into the bal . lot-boxes iu November tbe whole Union Conservative Itepublicau vote to make Grunt's majority so large thut it will be morally decisive, and toe uhalt Atta4 peace.' If Grant U elected we shall have peace in about ix montht), and Iron the moment of bis election the whole business of tbe country will spting into activity. Any doubt not merely' upon bis election but upon that election ' being JrnVre'öf' II the questions of the day; wilt uimply coo tinue the clouds and anxieties which have been so prevalent. .General McClellauin one of bis letters said the truth, when .be said that the war was divided intd two parts, only the first of4 which wa ended at Appomattox Court lloufe.- The other has been going on ever, since,,-and. can only be ended by an occi whe.lvi.ing nutjurity for Grunt in Xovtmber. This is as much to the interest of every Democrat in (he country as it is of any Itepublicaa' 1 All Americans have the same, real interest. Wby not, when a questiouis really deci ded, as the question of .the Presidency is substantially why not accept h, and try to make the decision absolute, and -mske i it of permanent benefit to tho countr)? Uhst is got ty making a factious oppo sition? We believe this view will be Ukeu by thousands of Democrat all over the country. Look at the letter "of Ju!ge Fierrepoitif, in New York, one of the leading Democrats of Tammany Hall. He saw aud declared that Blair's letter and rebel rpveches mean revolution, and that the suieics of Seymour would reduce the property of tho country to half ita value Tl'j uisy be a strong Matement, but it is near the truth. To undertake any tu .re rcvuLatipil wbl"'! , the attempt to ovrr uiiatf uelion'wfil V.;rt"Xe"To T certainly produce, would throw the'Vu! net of the country into utter confunon, and reduce the -vslue of all property. Cnii Democrats afford that any more than Keptitdicaiis? If, aa ia claimed by tome uf tlie l'vmocrslio leader, Ihe t busioess ol (ho country is obstructed and r(Dgrrrt rt i a rued by the poliiicul agitation - caused by the Uepubliuun. then, when the de cision iacleuily rendettid and it ia un loom iu the power el tho Detiiouratio piriy to prevent Kcpublicati measure, why any lunger keep up a useless agitation? Lut any intelligent Democrat look at the esse precisely an it is, and he will ace that it Is as hopeless to expect Democratic suevesa on their recent platform as if was for the Federali-ta to hsve espoutcd au(-cc!allrr the war id' 1H12 15.
