Strenuous efforts ere being made by the leaden of the various factions and isms oppo sed to democratic men and measures, to form a coalition in the hope of achieving a victory at the approaching fall elections. The hope of official station and public plunder has ad hesiveness enough to keep the incongruous compound together until after the election, could they come to terms as to how the divi sion must be made. The Free Soilers evince but little disposition to "fuse" unltss they can have S. P. Ciiask, fur Coventor the oth- er contracting parlies "Know Nolhings," He publican, etc., say oh yes, we'll go into a Convention and nominate Mr. Chase, well knowing if that procedure is asstnted to, Mr. " Chase mill not receive more than a show for the nomination and they will have the Free Soilers pledged ! There is a game being play - ed of, "Will you walk in pretty fly!" We shall see whether the Free Soilers will te lured into the fatal meshes of the snare set to en trap them. The organs of the Free Soil party do not favor a Convention upon the plan pro .posed, well knowing if such is the case their death warrant is signed, sealed and delivered. 'The Knew Nothings and Free Soilers are well aware that unles they can lorm a coalition the democratic nominees will be triumphantly elected by thousands ; hence llieir anxiety to "fuse." There is plotting and counter plot ting among the leaders of both parties, each endeavoring to over reach the other, and by some trick secure the advantage for himself end friends. We look with some anxiety for the result of this political game of chess, yet we confess, we do no', believe that a "fusion" can be acheived upon the terms offered by either party. There seems to be a determina tion upon both sides, to have the Gubernato rial candidate, which is "the bone of conten tion," according to latest advices. Perhaps a division of spoils may be offered satisfactory to all parties and a "fusion" perfected, but, we think such circumstance exceedingly doubtful under tha present condition ofof ' fairs. "OH and water cannot mix," and we hall be somewhat astonished if Free So ilium and Know Nothing ism agree to go into a "fus ion" for they are exactly antipodes in every principle. But, politics makes strange toed--fellows, sometimes. rrj-Persons at a distance who wish loadver- tlse in the "Eaten Democrat," so long us it is under our control, must pay in advance, or give orders on some responsible person, or 'Send their advertisements through some Adver tiling Agent.

This day seven years ago, wV came among you to take charge of your county organ, and do battle for the principles of troeTepublican- ism. Since that time we have been constant inuty, and during almost all that period la bored under disadvantages such as no other person who had charge of the Democrat expe rienced, and such a no editor should endure. But, notwithstanding all our " evil things," our heart has been cheered by many brilliant triumphs for democratic men and measures, even in this stronghold of whiggery, where only s few years ago, the opponents of democracy rolled up their one thousand majority against true Americanism. Now, their forces are scattered to the four winds of heaven, dispirit ed and distractedwandering forth in factions, seeking tn (orm alliances with any and every ism, in the hope of official station and public plunder. To-day, the whig party of old Preble is without a name or existence, while the derrocracy has maintained its principles and identity and stands now, as ever, a beacon light and guiding star to the oppressed of earth. Seven yean ago, the whig party of old Preble met in delegate Convention, and nom inated candidates, which nomination waa equivalent lo an election. Seven years ago, we commenced exposing the rottenness of whig principles and the rascality of those who worked the wires, and this day, where are they? Echo asks where T One by one the great guns of the party have been slain before the people, enlightened by truth fearlessly spoken and endorsed at the ballot boxes by an intelligent constituency, until reduced to the last extremity, "body and breeches," the lead ers of the whig parly, which once gloried in such potent power, have gone in a body to the "A'noio Nothings," and now, under a new name, seek to inflict u pon the people their in famous and oft repudiated dogmas and explo ded principles of government. They may for a time, a short time succeed, but the veil will be removed, llieir designs and intentions ex posed, and an indignant people repudiate all such arrant hypocrisy and designing dema gogueism. No man but a democrat an tea true American ! Or, in other words, no mar. is a true Americm, unless he is a democrat I This is our posilion, and we think it is one easily elucidated and sustained. But we were going to speak more particularly of ourself, and shall proceed. We are sorry lo say that, the democracy of Preble county, never have, since we have had charge of the "Dtmocral," given it and us that support and encourage ment it was their duty to extend and our rea sonable expectation. Under pecuniary em barrassments, incurred in the publication of the paper, and by false friends, we have labor ed and persevered until labor and perseverance has olmost given way to despair, and hope, sickened by reverses no longer bids ui look forward to a bright future, unless by a change, not in our principles, but in patronage, or lo cality .' We have arrived at the conclusion that, our circulation must be materially in creased, or we shall seek another location. There are democrats enough in Preble counly to furnish us a support such as any man should be satisfied with, and we want them to do it. We should have at least eight hundred sub scribers in this county good, advance paying ones, which would give us a circulation of over twelve hundred altogether. We have been seven yean among you, and if you are satisfied with our course and the paper, sup port it, if you do no!, we shall take it as prima facie evidence that you do not want a Demo cratic paper, or ui a$ editor, and we shall fur nish you an opportunity to get another editor and give him a better support, if you will ! We have appealed to you time and again I We have besought you to come up and support your paper and give us your aid and encour agement in advocating democratic measures, but lo our appeali,mauy of you, the great ma jority, has lent a deaf ear, and no matter how charming the syren song we have sung, like the adder your ears have been closed to the music of democratic principles, when it came to spending a cent in their dissemination. In some instanc es, a few professing to love de mocracy have exerted their little influence against us and the paper. But, we do not wish lo indulge in hitler things. We say now, while you may, if you want your county paper to be efficient in the cause, come to its sup port. Too many professing democrats have stood aloof with their hands in their pockets and their purses clasped in a death-like grasp, waiting from year to year to see if the paper tcould succeed-we have tried you seven years you have tried us and found in our compo sition the necessary qualifications to publish a democratic paper, sound, consistent, faithful and fearless, now, if you want to try us any longer, you must come up to the work inearn est, subscribe and pay for the paper, for no man can be efficient in the advocacy of any cause, under pecuniary embarrassments. Plain talk is necessary now, and action de manded in the premises. There is an important political crisis approaching, and if you do nor feel interest sufficient to aid in conducting the campaign with Zealand sipril, we vill try and find a location, where democratic zeal lives, and acts in those professing to love the principles of true republicanism, as understood and carried out by Jackson, Polk and Pierce. Wilh the democrats of old Preble county we .eave tin matter, and !hrrw upon them the responsibility. Since we have bad control of the "Democrat," at olmost every election some inroads were made upon the organiza tion of the opposition, and we have labored and expended time, money and brains, while others reopt the rewards. We have not com plained, however, but patiently endured all, in the hope that justice would come some day not in the shape of office, for we never desi red an official p sition, but, io the hope that the democrats of the county would appreciate our efforts in the cause, and come up as Ihey should, to the support of the paper and our encouragement. While manyslept, we work ed, mentally and physically, and no honorable effort was left untried on our part, to secure he ascendancy of the men who represented our principles. We now ask every man who feels an interest in the cause, to come up and subssribe for the paper, for the next year, and pay for it ia advance. It is your duty and '"" reasonable xrctation. Will you do sof ye sha 1 see ! Upon your action in the pre- s i mises may depend greater results than at first might be tmgined. Ponder well the subject and act out tha the honest conviction of your hearts. "We hope every man who ia now a reader aed subscriber, will feel it hit duty to at once renew his subscription, snd get a nt subscriber, and by this means we shall have our circulation largely increased, our sphere of usefulness extended, and democratic prin ciples be properly disseminated among the people. Will those interested see that the work is performed. Wa await an answer. An Interesting Book. One of the most interesting works ever is sued from the American Press, is "Parley' Pa norma, or.

United States Senator from California—Reelection of Dr. Gwin. As our re ulers ate aware, the Legislature of California has been ballotling nearly all winter for a United States Senator in place of Dr. Gwin, Democrat, whose term of service expired on the fourth of March last. That gentleman's friends, have lately discovered that Dr. Gww was elected on the first ballot several months ago, when be received a plu rality of the votes cast, although not a major ity. They base their argument upon the fol lowing state of facts : "The thirty eighth section of the fourth ar ticle of our Stale constitution declares that 'In all elections by the Legislature, the mem bers thereof shall vote eiuo roee, and the votes shall beenteredon the journal.' "Section twenty, in article eleven, declares that 'A plurality of votes given at any elec tion shall constitute a choice where not o'.hei wise directed in this constitution.' "Under these clauses of our constiln'inn, Dr.Gwin is clearly elected United States Sen tor. 'A plurality of votes civen ami elre. t inn limit constitute a c'toice. " In the constitution of no other Slate of the Union, eicipt California, it it declared that a plurality of rotes shill constitute a choice in "n election-.' and until thai clause is alter ed, the Legislature can pass no law thul con- ii icis wiin it." The above sections seem to be so clsar and explicit as lo warrant the construction put up on them, and there is reason to believe that Dr. Gwin will be declared duly elected by wiesenaie. It is not a little strange, how ever, that the discovery was not made before, Dr. Gwin is an able and capable man, a aunoh Democrat, and we are heartily re joiced that he has been again returned.

Child Murder—Arrest and Partial Confession of the Mother, Mary Ann Toohey—A Man Implicated in the Crime.

On Sat urday afternoon, Dr. Freiotgove it as his opin ion that the conditiou of the woman would admit of her -removal, and, upon bis statement to that effect, officer Squires, who held the warrant for her anest, conveyed her in his carriage lo jail. Arrived at the jail, she was questioned par ticularly as lo her connection with the mys terious affair, but at first stoutly asseverated her innocence. Upon bring told that the medical examination and testimony pointed exclusively to her as the mother of the child, she exclaimed, "Wellll's only a hanging scrape after all, and if any one is hung il must be me, for the child is mine." lie then proceeded to state that Urn child Was born on Monday evening, while her relaltivts were absent at a ball In West troy, that she wrapped it in n blanket, and proceeded tcith it htrself, toa yard in the rear oj Ab.ngton ;jiec. She said she was not certain that the child was living at the tmiu she threw it the fei'ce, nor that it was living nt the lime of birth. I This slaleinent was very contradictory, and apparently inade with the intention ot screen- ! ing a third party. Ollicer Squirts lemur ''ed lo her that il was hardly possible her story could be true, uud that one of the witnesses sworn upon the Coroner's inquest had lesiifi- ed to hearing a man's step approaching the yard at the lime the child was thrown over the fence. Upon this the prisoner remarked: "Well, come tome at seven o'clock, audi will tell you all about il." During the aubsequent interview, she slated Hint the name of ihe child's father was James McCarly, that he was implicoled with her in the murder, and had taken the child from her soon after its birth. She gave his portion of her statement wilh evident reluctanue.oiid seemed desirous that no one should suffer from the consequences uf the crime save tier sell.
