And nut only tlut, but before this time nril year the presses and politicians -ho but yes terday were denouncing him ss a traitor sec ond only to Benedict Arnold, will be pointing to him sa tha ony hope and refuge of the party.

"It can hardly be doubted that tha Illinois Senstor will conlinus to act with the demo cratic party, to which ha Is indebted fur tha great victory which bo has just achieved over the Opposition.", ' . The next is from the Hartford (Conn.) 1'osl, which names Mr. Dnuglnana the inevit able democratic candidate for the Presidency in 18b0, and administers the following "side w inder" to Buchanan, fur trying to defeat its "little ginnl:" "The democracy of the nation may well be proud of this brilliant and splendid achieve ment on the part of their political compeers In Illinois. It is a triumph of national prin ciples nnd views over thv factious elements of disunion, and the bloody programme of pro scription which the Opposition would carry out in its sectional animosities towards Hie South. Henceforth, let the watchwords ol the Democracy be, 'IuU),'Iiih nnd the Union the Little Oiaiit and the Constitution.'" Then comes Hie Washington Slates, soo ther democratic paper, w hich has a large cir culation and v. folds a heavy influence. It claims the result in Illinois ns "a battle of the Union won," nnd says: "The 'Dauites' will poll about three thou, sand votea, out of two hundred nnd forty thousand in the State! Must of thu 'Danite' officeholders Voted the Republican ticket! "Our advices bring us the cheering intelli gence that the Cincinnati platform, with Duuglns upon it, will hnve a majority in both branches ol the legislature, nnd a very large majority of the popular vole over the unholy and unnatural alliance ol Uanite boilers and Black Republicans. Out of two hundred and forty thousand votos, the Wendell Danite bolters will have about three thousand. Can there be anything more significant than this? Can there be a more dialincl or emphatic warning to the Admiuislrutiou) Certainly not. "If the temporary defeat nf the Democracy in Pennsylvania was a rebuke to the Admin istratiot., the success of the Democracy in Illinois is yet a severer rebuke nn the same grounds. The AilmmiMration did not light the battle in Pen isylvnma mi the Cincinnati platform. The dcniocrncf did light the llli noia battle ou that platform." That explains tho whole matter," .... We could re-produce more of tho same aort, but these will aufliee to show that, not withstanding the Immense amount of aliiii-e recently heaped upon Ihu the "Little Giant" by the ndminisliatiun journals, he is still in pretty goud odor with tho democratic party, which party, tho reader will remember, lins alwnya nianifuxted a readiness to relent nod forgive when its ascendency in the govern ment was menaced. For ourself, we rejoice at the success of (lunulas, because bis suc cess is the defeat uf a Black Republican, whu, with the exception perhaps of Win. H. Sew ard, has ns much ability and weight ns any member of his parly. Whether the people of the South generally can support Air.

With but I'.vo candidates in the Held Douglas nnd tho nominee of tho Black Republicans the for mer, with nil his sins freshly blooming on his brow, will, of course, be the choice of the slave-holding Slates.

'1'hat paper, after re view ing the Bunk Slateincnl accompanying the letter, says: We pass over much of Mr. Johnon'e let ter, agieeing with him we du Itiat banks are rtecceaa iry lor the buili. as uf the Slate. We utterly repudiate his doctrine that the atock banks ahould be ahuliahed, and the State Bank made the mounter institution he desires it to be. An it is st p'eseiit formed, it can be made an engine in the bauds of un scrupulous paitiaan slid political deniiigoouee, to be used as a no-uns of corruption snd bri bery. Remove from it the checks imposed by the stock banks, snd the temptation o to uae it would be increased a thousand fold. This proposition uf prominent democrat like Cave Johnson, is suogralive. Iu this connection should be remembered the qussi bard money pl.illurin hutued by the Demo cratic caucus uf big wigs which assembled al Naahvilln not a great while aince. Cave Jobnior. flies directly in the face of this, nnd adheres lo the old pet theory of the Jacksoii ian 'democracy of mounter Slate banks. Herein ia ahow n in glaring colors the hypo crisy and double dealing of the democracy. They are terribly opposed to banks of issue they want hard money currency, whenever they think that is in fnvur with the people; hut while all the lime making these profes sions, their hankering for means of power will occasionally break out. Thev have, in point of fuel, created more banks than any other party that ever has existed. Let us, in considering this preposition of Hon. Cavo Johnson, recur to the arguments of the Democracy against n Ni.tional Bank. They then avowed that such un institution woujd be used by politicians to corrupt the people, the government and especially Con. gress. What, let us ask, would he the differ ence iu the working of n State iiiHiltinion of a similar nature ? Thero can he none w hat ever, except that thu liel.l ol its operations will be mure limited iu extent. Not a aingle argument ever ndvaneed against a Nation .1 Bank, but will apply with niinl force to State banks similarly organized. Indeed, a Statu Bank is intinitely w orse than a National Bank; for the I tier could be so organized aa to be under the inllueiice and control nf no particular or single party, while the former could not. We are, in some respects, much pleased with Cave Johnson's inanit'eilo. He pours hot shot into the ranks ol the hard money wiliL' of the Deinocraev.and we hope lie will give them n lew more uf thu same sort be- lore he slopa, Tho second article is from the Franklin Review, as follows: Stale Hunk uml Col. ,oiiuoi'i littler. Upon the octMaion of making nis periodical report to the Slute authorities, the President of thu State Bank has thniiL'M proper to ad dress a letter, virtually to the public, stating his views of the linniicial policy of the State. So l.trns thatdociiineiit ia conversant with the pssl history of our bunking institution's, we do not choose to intermeddle witli it, feeling. we du, it luvk of information, ade quate to a I'nirand (HI discussion on the sub ject. Wo h ave the statements oT Colonel Johnson to be controverted, if truth nnd jus. lice so require, by thosu w hose position nnd opportunities both enable and invite them to scrutinize his assertions. However, there is one recommendation, with which the President closes his exposi tion ugninst which we feel culled upon to protest, with all our powers ot rec dcitratioti. We allude to his scheme of discontinuing, as soon ns it can ho done, all the other b inking institutions of Hie State, nnd increasing the c.i, it . I of the State II mk, so ns to supply iiie vacuum in thu currency, w hich inimt ensue upon ho sweeping an abolition. Regarding us well thu source from which it eimiiir.lcM, as its own intrinsic character, this is beyond all competition, the most men-lrous propoai (ion, which has yet been presented to Un people of Ti nnessee.to be repudiated at once by popul ir common sense, or e.sc tu lead llieiu tu financial and political ruin. Who is it that thus proposes to place the wnule currency of the state in the hands o! the appointees of any political party, that may, at any time happen to have possession ol ine State government? W hv.nn old Jack sou Democrat, the catch word of whose parly for 'J4 years, has been the total disconnection of tho Statu from nl! dank ing institutions ! We Were awaie that the "Nationals" w ere quietly stealing a little of the old w big policy in order to keep themselves decent before thu world; but tvero unprepared for this ex treme reaction ngninst the lending traditions or tha parly that crushed the hank of the United States, accanxs tV Md too great and dangerous a joicer oter the currency of the country. And yet the U. S. Bank, in itsenpi tnl and control, did not belong exclusively 1j the government, ns Col. Johnson proposes shall be tho case with Hie State Bank of Tennessee. As Dr. Il drd would say, "this ia a very wonderful thing;" but perhaps our as toriehnient may be diminished by Ihe reflec tion that Ihe U. S. Bank would not be con trolled by Ihe Jackson party, but the Hank of Teiim see is completely ill the bunds of His present lovol'oeo stale government. "Cir ciiuisrnhces alter cssi'S. ' ' - As to the preposition Itself, it la lo u so utterly abominable, in all Its aspect, that we find it difficult to select any particular point of attack. For the present, we content out selves with saying, that we object lo it ss sure tn become a corrupt snd curruplin po litical party machine. From the instance snd ex iinple ol the present nslion.il administra tion, we feel Wurraiited in nsserline, without a prendvenlure, that such it would bn in the hands ol the Democratic party; nnd we are unwilling to expose any other party tlmt max happen to supplant them, to the dangers of corrupting n temptation, W hen the capi tal nt the bank slurll have beer) consumed ns it would be in corrupt, electioneering procu mlions, we see, In it not distant perspective, the advocacy of repudiation employed to dr. base the people into Ihe anppi.it of those' w hoa misuse of Ihe Slate foods and credit has rendered repudiation s welcome measure rt dishonorable relief.' Our "gorge rises" nt the contemplation. The ailly scheme of abolishing nil piper money, snd retrograding from our present stage of c;viliolion into the use of nn exclu sive inetalia currency, is tmrt enough,, but tolerable iu comparison with Col. Johnson's prescription. For our single self, we prefer going back lo the primitive Tennessee cur rency of coon skins and wolf scalps. ' tW Ab.
