Mr. Kditor :— Flense insert in y oar
columns tho following article, taken from
thc New York Bulletin of Oct. 5th.
I think it will apply equally as well to
the politics of Delaware as of New York
Newark, Del Oct. 7th, 1872.
Complaint and Answer.
The tDcrchntits and husinesa men
New York are often reproached by the
professional politicians for not manifesting
a more active
r rsonal interest in the
tho day. It is a coin
mon saying, that they are so absorbed
with buying and selling, with money and
mcrchandiac, that they have neither time
nor inclination to * *lieli
p save the country ."
Also, that, because of thi* abstinence
from politics and political strife, bad men
worked themselves into office, entailing
upon us the maladministration, the cor
ruption and dishonesty, which are become
a perennial if not a perpetual scandal in
the public service.
Granting, for thc moment, that the im
putation is not an unjust one, we would
suggest to those who assume to be the
creators and leaders of political opinion,
(hut an excellent way to win over thc ac
tive personal co-operation of thc classes
alluded to would be to make politics some
thing better and nobler than a mere trade,
or stepping-stone to office, or the means
merely of advancing ignoble ambitions.
One thing is certain, und that is, if tin*
unhridl* d license of thc leading journals
and the most influential orators of both of
the great parlies that are now contending
for power and place \* to ta accepted
correct gauge of what politics ami politi
ght to be. ideally, not only the
m rehaut* and business men of our grent
•ities, but vast numbers of other self rcs
peeling people, will continue indifferent,
or t• * stand aloof convinced that in times
- like these, not only t liât * 4 thc p st of
