For ourselves, and speaking only for
ourselves, we earnestly hope, and most im
licitly believe, the real genuine, single
ed Democracy will never submit to
be led blindfold into the contest which is
impending, that they will neither "wave
all discussion." of major or minor points,
nor acquiesce in the mean and cowardly
policy of making no declaration of princi
pisfor the public eye;" much less, imi
tate such dastardly dissimulation. They
wil rally round the man. whoever be may
be, whose prcvious'couduct has demonstra
ted that be is indeed -*one and indivisible"
with the Democracy, and devoted to those
great principles which, as they have never
hesitated to avow in the face of friend as
well as foe, they will never cease to man'
tan. It is not enough merely to put down
the '"common eneiny," wi.hout knowing
who is to be put in his place. It it not
enough that we conquor. We must reap
the fruirs of victory in the re-establishment
of that great system of poiscy, without
which success will be but an empty name.
4 From the Charluion Mercurys
We concur altogether with the senti
ments above quoted from the last Wash
ington Globe. Let the declaration of our
principles be kept ever prominentlv before
the public eye that they may never be lost
sight of, and that all the candidates for the
favor of the people may be held strictly to
them, in all their length and breadth,
without compromtising them, in any one
point in the least degree. Let those priu
ciples be always inscribed on our banner:
' Free Trade; Loto Dutirs; No Debt:
Separation from Banks; Economy ; Re
trenchment; and strict adherence to the con
gitasion;" and let us bo content with no
victvry which is not a certain. unequivo
cal triumph of each and all of them.
To ensure this, we are not of the opin
ion that it is the policy of our presses to
avoid expressing their several preferences
for men--as is suggested by some of our
contemporaries. We wvould prefer than
each press should .penk out and namine is
Saw-that the people may have full time
to decide, who best will adhere to anil
maintain those pritciples-and that each
State should do likcwi-e, through its !egis
lature or a State convenion. and at otec
-that the prevailing sentimenit of the De'
mocracy may be early known, and the
claims of the several lemocratic Candi
dates be freely and fully disctssed before
a joint nomination is male. There is more
seurity against divisiuns in such a course
daa in any other.
From the Old Dominion.
The people of this country flatter them
selves that they enjoy liberty perfect, abso

their having the freest form of government
upon the face of the earth. We shall not

sincerely we may doubt the former.

doubt their infallibility, to dare to have an
boaest opinuion of our own, is a most dan
groms heresy, an unpardonable offence.
This is fully exemplified in mthe natter of a
Presidential nomination. Wait until the
Convention speaks-do not agitate this
enestion at thbe present, say the wire-work
ers. May we then be allowed to espress
our opinion? By no means. To utter a
word of dissent from the decision of a
