We republish the following editorial
Clipped frcut the Chicago Times a short
time afterthe presidential election of
Fsio, aud it id Ykortby f republishing
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

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

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
The curse of slavery has poisoned the

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
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
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
