AH cntisetvaties who favor thw inieg fity of the Union, and the equality of the States, are invited to join us in an effort to save the country from its peril*. Bjr order of the S»ate Central Committee. M. ELWOOD, 'Jhair u. I)es Moines, April 11. 1866. RKWAUD OV MERIT. Were it not the perfidy which is in variably a necessary adjunct to all sud den political changes in men, it would be •musing to notice the pecuniary conse quences which have invariably followed such change, when the convert became a froselvte to the creed of the present dom inant party. Look where we will, the rule prevails, with few if any exceptions.— That those men who were the most earn est and ultra Democrats when that party was in power and who haveatace abjured that political faith, are now the equally earnest and ultra Republicans and what i» also n rather amusing coinci dence, pecuniary success lias invariably followed clote upon the heels of this po litical apostacy. To demonstrate the correctness of this hypothec, it is un necessary fcr us to go abroad out of oar owu midst. 11 ere in Sioux City we have any amount of living examples of its truth. At every turn and on every cor ner we may find a HUDSON, a BOSI.ER, or ft DAVIS—gentlemen whose successful accumulation of this world's goods exhib its practical fruits of the reward which follows a transplanting from the sterile soil ol Democracy ioto the hot-bed of republicanism. However unpleasant it mast be to those old and faithful Democrats who have con scientiously and consistently adheiei to the tenets of that party whose teaching* and workings had made this country what it was before radicalism and fanaticism obtained place and power—to see the men who desert their ranks in the hour of need rewarded in such manner—it must be still more offensive to those republicans who have borne the heat and bardeo of the day. With those few honest fanatics who have been consistent work ers in the republican ranks, we can sym pathise and overlook the errors of their political faith but those renegades who have been so eager to desert their party and their principles, that thrift may fol low fawning, have certainly forfeited all confidence repo.-ed in their political in tegrity by their old associates, and are looked upon as dishonest and mercenary. MATH OP «EMERAL CAM. DKTr.oJT, June 17th. General Lewis Cflfc* died at 4 o'clock this morning, aged eighty four years. Thus one by one and in rapid succes sion are riven the links that bind us to the days when statesmen administered the affairs of our government. As these great lights go out, the dark cloud which hangs over the destinies of our coun »ry becomes more dense and the heart of every true patriot is filled with apprehen eion for the fate of a government whose destinies are sought to be controlled by disunion fanatics. A HKWVAPBR. I). A. Mahony and Stilson Ilutchins, melj known in this State as Democratic editors of the Dubuque Herald, and of the most determined stniop, have made arrangements to start in St. Louis on th«i first of July, a daily paper to be celled the Past, ft will be in politics a Johnson Blair sheet, and will, of course, be fear less and able. If euch men as as Mahony and Hutcbins can support Johnson, we don't see why other Democrats should bold off. Quite a scene occured Thursday io one ©f the halls of the t-apilol at Washington Just after the adjournment of the bouse. Gen. Ilousseau. of Kentucky, accompa nied by some of bis friends, approached Mr. Grinnell, of Iowa, and demanded an apology for remarks made by the lat ter in a debate in the house on Monday last. Mr. Grinnell refused to make the amende, whereupon the General struck him on the face with his cane Friends interfered, and no further fiolence w«i offered.
