They think like the Otaheitan cooks that no food is good to eat unlebs they have tasted it. No chicken is worth anything unless hatched in their nest. Some of these worthy but mistaken people are finding fault with the Republi cans of the Eighth district for venturing to make a nomination for Congress to contest ihe ground against a party overwhelmingly _ the majority. We commend the exam pie of this district to Republicans every where. As long as there was a reasonable prospect of noroe candidate who might divide the opposition, and who would sus tain the Administration, they refrained from making a nomination. But they would be false to principle, and blind to every con sideration of sound policy, to let such a j nomination as that of General Hun ton go unopposed in a campaign involving: the most vital national issues. (ieneral Ilunton has been making an ac live canvass for several weeks, aided by the ' most able speakers uf his party. The i charges which he makes against General ; tiiaot and the Republican party an? of the ' most serious character. 'J'hey are backed ; by his personal popularity and well known ! ability as a speaker. They are made before audiences who read only their own papers nnd hear no refutation of these statements, 11 and uo defence of our paity. While they j ,_, j unchallenged our cause suffers and the j people are deceived into still supporting a J party which is fast losing their confidence. | They fee no place to go, and remain where ! they are. To surrender such an opportu- i nity is inexcusable on our part. I There never wa_ a time when the public t mind in Virginia was so favorable to receive < the truth as at this moment. Our oppo- f ■'■" « ■*■ ———mH—mw—ij nents ar« halting aud in disortUrr,bcwildcrcd by tho migatflcwl triumphs of tho late elootionH. It its for us now to assume the aggressive everywhere. It is no time to rest on our aims, presuming upon their inaction and waiting for something to turn up. We hare « Mm to maintain— great piinciples, involving the welfare of : our country through the coming centuries, I have been placed in our kccpitig. Upon the issue of iho contest hnng consequences of tremendous moment, which no intellect can measure. At such a time inaction and indifference are criminal. It is our highest duty not less thau our highest interest to force the fighting, and to put our foes vpon the defensive. No Congressional district should fail to run a candidato to concentrate the votes of Republicans. It may well be that in the pre sent disorganized condition of politics, good men not heretofore with us may be selected as our standard-bearers, because of their power to divide the opposition. If such men can bo found, who, in the opinion of the Republican voters, can be trust ed to sustain the Administration, we cannot advise tho running of an other candidate. But a district without a candidate to receive our votes is a mute of strength which must be condemned by every sagacious and earnest man in our ranks. We gain nothing by this course; we lose discipline, self-respe<t, and bring upon ourselves the deserved contempt of our opponents; we admit practically that we care nothing for principle and only run can dilates when they can secure offices. Such was not the spirit in which tho Re publican party had its origin, or was built up into power. It is not the spirit or method to secure its permanence. Our mis sion ts to rule the nation by educating the peo ple into the great gosjycl of Liberty, Fraierni tj, Equality and Ihe National Unity, In the ww of ideas as in other wars, the battalion that holds its own with difficulty is not less ! worthy of renown than that which sweeps the field and carries oft' the guns and standards of the enemy. They occupy his time, employ his energy, ami enable the fortunate battalions to advance their lines. We protest against all advice which inculcates a passivo policy. It is the policy of ruin, and we havo had too much of it in Virginia already. It is the policy of cowardice, and drives from us our mobt earnest and devoted men. We want ho timid, bolting and irresolute leaders, icho fear agitation because they may be jostled'out of a snug place. We want hold, intrepid, resolute leader ship, which gives the enemy no rest, but carries the war into his own coun try, and puts him on the defensive. Any other policy we utterly repudiate and de nounce. We appeal to our Republican friends every where, as they love their prin ciples and look for ultimate victory, to rouse for one grand effort throughout the State. Tho Republicans of the Eighth district have dove their duty in nominating the candidate of their choice, and making an open nnd vigorous canvass. That nomina tion was unanimous and made by a con vention regularly and fairly constituted. Under these circumstances no man who i recognizes the approved rules of party organization can now oppose it. Every true Itepvbliean will give his best effortmlo . secure the largest rote possible for it. Op position can only be in the interest of the Democratic, organization. If there bo any Republicans who really believe that General Grant will get more votes in this State by letting General Ilunton icalk over the course unopposed, they are victims of a strange delusion. To be consistent they should oppose Republican nominations everywhere aud leave. Democracy to die. out for want of ■ opposition. The enemy will do his very worst. lie is not to be conquered by mode ration and passive inaction. He will strike us with all his might, and if we wait for iiin to surrender to our " quaker guns," he will hit us so hard as to disable us from ever delivering another blow. Let Republi cans put forward their best men every where, dismiss every personal quarrel, and heal all divisions in our ranks. From now till the sun goes down on the day of elec tion, let every man bo found in his place earnestly battling for the cause. Let none fear that he will lose ultimately by this temporary surrender of his preferences. The sure rewards ot fidelity will make good the sacrifice, and in the coming tri umph all will take their share. — ■' ' ~ -*t HOt nun—- m Indiana— I —Sustained by the Opposition is so ovcr -1 whelming it is amazing that they have tho ! assurance to speak of the State as doubtful, i Some of them do so. For the benefit of ! such we copy the view of the matter taken by that old and unrelenting Democrat!?; journal, the Chicago Times : The result in Indiana is now definitely ascer tained. The Repubticaus keep the State". They have elected every State officer, executing only Governor. They have elected the two Congress men al large; all the oilier Congressmen but three, and a majority in both branches of the Legislature, thus securing the return of O. P. Morton lo the United States Senate. Mr. Hen dricks is probably elected Governor by live or six hundred majority, running ahead of the Greeley ticket somo hundreds more than that. In the Congressional delegation the Republi cans have gained not only the two additional members under the new apportionment, but two besides, making a gain lor them of/,ur Con gressmen in Indiana. Of the thirteen members the Democrats have elected only three; two less than they had before they joined tbe Chappa quacks. The return of O. P. Moron to the United States Senate aud tho reduction of the Democratic representation lv Congress from five-elevenths to thri'o-thirtutnths—this Is what the Democracy in Indiana have achieved by _ tallying with the Greeley ite Deliinh. ' The Republicans reckon upon carrying the State for Grant by ten thousand majority. If any considerable number of Dr-mocrats shall continue to adhere to the foolish and suicidal scheme of trying to save a little contemptible squad of sorehead Radicals from political perdi tion, tie reckoning Is an exceedingly moderate one. Over Oree)i-y. Grant's majority iv Indiana Is more likely to be fifty thousand ; for there arc hardly less than that number of Democrats In Indiana who are already determined to cast their votes for O'Conor and Adams. And if the entire body oi Democrats In that State should drop tbo dead log ofOhappaqua and his "lost cause,'" beyond a doubt O'Conor and Adams would re ceive the electoral vote of Indiana. Tho only alternative now presented is O'Conor or Grant. new ri!BLicATio.\s. The Socruijaw Apple Asn Peach Cui.Trmsr; by James Fitx.
