JOIIN'BISSEL. Wiilias BisseU, Register. " tit'y. i Of h "LET IT DIE!" The Democrat Dartv never can and never ought to win another National Victory. We republish the following editorial Clipped frcut the Chicago Times a short time afterthe presidential election of Fsio, aud it id Ykortby f republishing aiuiii .- The recent Presidential election has hovn that there is an invincible reason why the 'Democratic party can never win a national victorv. It is that the vouths of this Republic art not Democratic The sons of Demo cratic lathers have grown up llepubli- ans. long us slavery and the war iuger within th memory of Ameri cans, tne youtiis or tins juepuuuu win continue to grow up Republicans; and slavery aud the war will he remem bered us long as the public school sys tem exists. The public school have lain the Democratic party, with the text boo4. It is vain lor statesmen to declare that there were as many Dem ocrats as Republicans in the Union army. It is vain to aflirm tnat the war for the preservation ot the Union could not have been carried to a suc cessful close without the aid ot the Democratic party. It is idle for phil- anthrohpy to .suggest that the attitude of that party to the war in the begin ning was a humane one; that it was in spired by the higher and better wish that the cause ot the conliict should be peaceably removed , ai,d the spilling of brothers1" blood by brothers' hands avoided. The Democratic party hns been ideally identified with slavery and glaveholding. The Republican party is ideally identified with emancipation and the war. Therefore the youths of the county are incapable of being Democratic, Therelore the Democratic party can never wm a jNftionai victory. JL O boys Tim old men are dying away. The tnat catch the ballots that tall trom their stiffened hands are Republicans. This fact cannot be denied. It will do no good to quarrel with it. All other causes which have operated to diminish the number of Democrats and increase the nuuieer of Republicans are insigni ficant beside this one tremendous and invincible fact. The curse of slavery has poisoned the blood and rotted tte bone of Democrat ic party. The malediction of the war has pal-jied Us.uram. lr.e young wite who beld the babe up to kiss the lather as he hurried to drum-tap of his depart- ; regime at hts no;-, suckled a demo crat . 1 lie weary loot ox tne gray grandmother who watched the cradle while the wife uas busy has not rocked the eiadle of democrats. The chair that the soldier father never came back to lil! has not been climbed upon by liocrats. 1 he old blue coat that his comrades carntu back was cut up for little jackets, but not one covered the heart of a democrat. The rattled mus ket that fell trom him with his last shot became the thoughless toy of the boys, but not a hand that played with it was the hand of a democrats. Tne babe he kissed crowed and crowed for his re turn, and its unwitting and unanswered notes were not from the throat of a democrat. The tear-eoiled camp let ters which the mother read aloud in the long, bitter evenings ' while the boys clustered at her knees, did not fall on democratic ears. The girls' sobs, blending with the mother's weeping, did not make democrats of their broth ers. Perhaps the father had been a democrat ail his life ! The children go to school. There is not a democrat on its benches. The first reader contains a portrait of Abra ham Lincoln that kind and sturdy face never made a democrat. On its simple pages, in words o'f one or two sylables , is told the story of his birth and death. That fctory never made a democrat. In the pranks of the playground that name silences the frolicsome and makes the joiiest grave. The name never made a democrat. In the pictures that light up the geography are the firing on Fort Sumpter and the death of Ells worth, Those pictures make uo demo erits. The first page of the history contains a representation of the surren der of Lee at Appomattox. No boy gazes on that and never after avows himself a democratic. In the higher grades the same subtle and unresisted influence is at work. The text book contains extracts from patriots speeches during the war. Those speeches make no democrats. The great battles are briefly described ; the narrative has no democratic listeners. The strain of martial music runs through the readers, and that music makes no democrats, bketches of the great generals are given ; the bravo deeds arouse the enthusiasm of the ladt, but there is no democrat among them. The horrors and sufferings of the slaves are to-d; the madaenea oiooa that mounts the boy's cheeks is not demo cratic blood. "The curse of slavery has pursued the democratic party and has hounded it to its death Therefore, let it die ; and no lip will be found to say a prayer over its grave. The late defeat need not be attributed to any ether causes. Othen causes were at work, but they were only incidental. The tariff was one. Sectionalism was a second. "Let 'well enough alone" was a third. The October failure in Indiana was a fourth. But all thee were trivial, and together could n;t have accomplished the result. The re- suit wa.3 accomplished because the youths of the Republic are not Demo cratic. The party is therefore without a future and without a hope. The mal ediction of tho war has paLied it3 brain. The enre of slavery ha pois oned iu blood and rotted in bone. Let it die. AVe clip the following from the Rus sel Record entitled "An old paper:" "Rev. J. C. Dana called Monday morn ing and showed us a copy of the Glean er, publishes at Wilkes-Barre, Pa., dated Friday evening, November Oih, 1812. Mr. Dana's father was a sub scriber of the Gleaner at the date of this issue, and remained so until his death , two or three years ago . The paper is filled with war news the war of 1812, anl the Napoleonic wars. Among other things is an official ac count of the battle of Queenstown, and the following paragraph in reference to Napoleon : The Emperor of Russia, in a procla mation to his people, speaks of Bone parte's design of marching to Moscow; but observes that even if victorious, it would be his destruction. He exhorts them not to be disheartened, and as sures them he will fight the French when the period for offering battle ar rives, Those were troublous times in all parts of the world, as is evinced by the following editorial: The year 1812 presents the sorrowful spectacle of the whole civilized world (as it is called,) being in a state of war fare. Such a period has not before oc curred for many ages. For the last twenty years human blood has flowed in torrents evn unto the horse brid les." Ah! what has it, availed, what benefit has mankind received from the mighty slaughter! It is literally "a day of wrath, a day of trouble and dis tress, a day of wasteness and desola tion, a day of darkness and gloominess, a day of clouds and thick darkness." There is an advertisement addressed 'To Men of Patriotism, Courage and Enterprise," wherein every able-bodied man who shall be enlisted "for the army of the U. S. for the term of five years, is offered a bounty of sixteen dollars, and in addition 1G0 acres of land if he serves the full term faithfully and ob tains an honorable discharge. The notice concludes as follows : For the sake of those who may not prefer a term of service for hve years, the governmeut allows a period of en listment for eighteen months, still offering the same rich compensation as above specified, except the donation of land. Those who may feel any inter est in the welfare of our common coun try, will embrace the present opportu nity of evincing their patriotism by enlisting themselves under the banners of the U. S. Those who may not be impel'ed by these motives, may find means in the same employment of satis fying their wants enlarging their for tunes, or gratifying their passion for pleasure For which they will make immediate application to the subscriber. The above was signed by Robert Gray, Capt. 16th Regiment U. S. In fantry. The political department contains the election returns from Luzerne county for members of Congress, and of the Legislature and county officers. Of elections elsewhere it says : "The mail brings the glad tidings of the election of a Federal Governor in New Jersey," and "From the returns received the Madisonian ticket in Pennsylvania has prevailed by a large majority. But the news is that Ohio has come out for Clinton; if so, we shall yet have "a newpilot to the ship." At the head of a column there is a notice that has a very familiar appear ance. Indeed, we think we have seen something very similar in some of our cotemporaries. As it may serve as a reminder to some of the readers of the Record, we reproduce a part of it. It is a ' 'Notice To Subscribers," be gins in thi3 wise : "All persons indebt ed for the Gleaner are earnestly solicited to make payment by November Court. We hope this request will be punctually attended to, and enable us to proceed without embarassment in our business. A word to the wise is enough." There are two items that are conspi cuous for their absence ia the Gleaner the railroad time table, and "News by Telegraph. " Railroads and Tele graphy, which in our day seem abso lutely indispensibie, had neyer been dreamed of. The Gleaner is a curiosi ty, and RULES AND REGULATIONS OF THE PHILLIPS COUNTY FAIR. 1st.
