Indictment of the Demo
W A A O O I N S O I S
I, I I A I I I A A 8 W I A 8
From the Niw York Time* of the 29th.
The record of the Demoeratio partj
daring tho war is disloyal ood unpa
triotia .W speak not of individual iJlVW
but ot the party in its organized action
Its oooventions, State and National—
the notion of its representatives—'the
speeches of its office-holders and candi
dates, the language of its orators and
presses, were all*calculated and intend
.ed to embarrass and cripple the, gov
ernment—-not to aid support and
strengthen it~i its life and death
struggle. The Demooratio party op
posed the draft It denounced the ar
rost and imprisonment of spies and
sympathizers with treason in the North.
It made itself every whore the champion
and defender of those who, in the loyal
States, sought to give aid and comfort
to %he rebels in the South. Vallandig
ham, in Ohio, was arrested, tried and
punished for dissuading soldiers from
enlisting, for encouraging desertions,
and for other flagrant violations of the
law, perpetrated in aid of the rebellion
and the Demoeratio party of the State
not only denounced his punishment as
an act of tyranny, but made him the
Demoeratio candidate lor Governor—
thus distinctly espousing and.endorsing
Jus sot as their own. Gov. Seymour in
this Stale, wrote a letter declaring, in
•Bubstanoe, that it was more important
to put down the government for its
treatment of Yallandigham, than to put
down the rebellion and the Democrat
io party made him their Governor. So
it was everywhere. The Democratic
party, throughout the North, in all its
party action', took ground against the
government, and practically and sub
stantially in aid of the rebellion.
We are quite willing to concede that
the Demooratio party sees its error now,
and would gladly retrieve it. It began
to repent immediately after the war was
closed, and tried to change its ground.
The resolutions adopted at the Demo
oratio State Convention last year wr re
in the main sound and patriotic—such
as commanded the assent of Union men.
But instead of acting with Union men
they olung to their own' organization
and strove resolutely to perpetuate their
party power. At Philadelphia they
went a step further, and while accept
iug,^ declaration of principles in sub
stantial harmony with the action of the
Union party during the war, professed
a willingness to lay aside all party pro
jects and join'under new auspices and
a new organization, witb men of all
parties to 'carry those principles into
practical effeet. But no sooner did the
State convention meet than the old par
ty flag was run up, the old paity lead*
ere took command, and the old craft
with all sail set made straight for the
old Demoeratio port-: The convention
had not a thought beyond, party sue
cess-and the 'plunder to be thus enjoy
The people'understand this game and
Intend to block. They do not mean to
replace the Democratic party in power.
They will not reward it for its disloyal
ty, nor will thoy trust it with interests
to which in the past it' has proved so
taithlesa. It is with them not a ques
tion of argument but of confidence.—
They core nothing for Democratic reso
lutions, speeches, professions or promi
ses they will not trust the Democratic
P***. IT .f
The World objects to an impeach
ment of the profession, spirit and tem
per of the Democratic party. But in
what single instance has that party made
itself the champion of any great reform
'When has, it favored measures for puri
lying society of its "evils—for remedy
ing great and flagrant-wrongs—for ed
ucating, assisting and elevating the ig
oartqt, the pop* and the-' degraded'(
For a' long series of ^years the Demo
cratic party has had absolute and un
disputed sway in this city in what be
neficent statutes or institutions do we
find tho monument of its regard for the
morals, the manners, or the peace and
good order of this great community
What has it done to protect.societj
against drunkenness, profligacy, vice
and misery in every form Is it not
notoriousthat every effort made by those
most solicitous lor the public welfare'
for the suppression of vice and immor
ality, meets its most formidable foe in
the Democratic party The' City strug
gled for years against that party to se
cure a decent Police Department.' It
was in the teeth of the most strenuous
hostility that we secured a Commission
to protect newly landed emigrants from
wholesale robbery, and at the present
tinie"'the' Democratic' party is putting
forth all its energies to break down the
Health Board and the Excise Commis
sion, by which alone we-have any hope
ot protecting the community against the
most fearful evils, physical and moral,
by which great societies are ever af
We certainly do not misstate the case
when we say that the Democratic party,
in its organized political action, is the
inveterate foe of all moral, and social
progress and elevation. It seeks al
ways to use the vices of men, not to
cure them1. It panders to the worst
appetites and passions, because it can
make them minister to its advantages.
And in its political action, its impulses
have been equally alien, to. the spirit of
freedom. Its temper towards the col
ored lice has always been narrow, illib
eral and cruel,—^irr sympathy with their
oppressors, never with, those who have
sought their elevation and advance
ment. In a word, the Demooratio Par*
ty has never sought anything higher or
better than its own aggrandizement,—
It has rarer yielded to the impulses of
philanthropy, wbicb, however mistaken
they may sometimes be, ate always no
bler than calculations of selfish advan
tage, as springs and motives of public
The Demoeratio Party has fallen be
K63 Ibe spirit and temper of the. age.
It has lost the confidence of the intel
ligent, public-spirited, aspiring loyalty
of the nation. And so long as it clings
to its old organisation and its old tra
ditions, it will find that its confidence
can never be regained.

-"The "Humble Individual/' in bis
speech at New York, asks: "Who has

for thecountry Let ussee 1
Mr. Johnson commenced life as a. tai
lor. He first "sacrificed" himself by
"aWerruao of a village.
subsequently he "suffered almost
countless miseries, as member of the
Legislature, us member of Congress,
and as Governor. Por.a number of
years before the war, hie. ^sacrificed"
himself on the altar of his country as a
Seuato'r. The war haying begun he ,did
uot violate his official oath, as some
others dial-—which was,a terrible "sac
rifice" and entitles him to the lasting
homage of men who never once dream
ed of turning traitor! .Prom the Sen
ate he was sent as Military Governor
to Tennessee—a position which gave
him almost boundless power to gratify
his psrsonal animosities, and which he
So used.as to be regarded by some as
the incarnation of tyranny. Prom this
position he was taken to fill the office
of Vice-President, and in accepting
that position he made another terrible
"sacrifice/' Of the poignancy of his
•'suffering" in that connection, we may
judge somewhat from bis inauguration
speech, in which the vulgar triumph of
a man of narrow mind elevated to lofty
station was undisguised by the reserve
that sobriety imposes. Then came the
crowning '•sacrifice." B} the death of
the President this sufferer became the
Chief Magistrate of the greatest! and
most mighty nation on earth: Anal he
is still sacrificing himself by living at
the White House, exercising despotic
power, and drawing a salary of twenty
five thousand dollars a year. What a
fearful sacrifice for a man to make!—
Eta twenty years, more or less, hie has
lived On the people, drawing always the
salary of some exalted position, and for
such sufferings and sacrifices he expects
the homage of mankind!
"Who has sacrificed and suffered
more than I have for the coantry!"
We can tell you, Mr. Johnson A mil
lion of brave men have left home and
dearly loved friends, snd all the com
forts of life they have slept on the fro
zen ground and lived on the coarsest
food, while you were revelling at Nash
ville or Washington, they have faced
the enemies of the country in the bat
tle field, and while you were firing hard
words at rebels from safe place, they
have breasted the storm of deadly bul
lets, the whistling minie and the howl
ing shell while you were haughtily ru
ling in Tennessee, they were risking
their lives in combat with the rebels at
the front and after fodr years of pri
vation, hardship and heroic endurance,
they are mustered out and go home to.
begin lite over again, while you attain
tbe highest point of au American's am
bition. Thousands and tens of thou
sands come back-with broken, health,
who: wdrjt out stalwart and hopeful men.
Thousands and tens of thousands qome
back without an arm, without a leg, or
with injuries from which they will nev

vaunt your sufferings. Thousands of
them endured tortures that no tongue
can tell in the prison pens at Ander

them perished in those horrid pens, ut

for the beloved country to which they
gave their lives a willing sacrifice. Talk
not of your sufferings, lest these mar
tyrs start from' their narrow graves to
confront you! Ask not "who has suf

hundred thousand heroes who have
fallen in this war, haunt you in your
dreams for the insult! The loving

years turned pale at every rumor of a

THE GRtAT ISSl'K.
From the Washington Chronicle.
Whoever favors the President's poli
cy, wishes to strip the loyal North of
twenty-five members of Congress, to
which it is fairly-entitled, and he wish
es to give twenty-five members to the
disloyal South, which that section has
no equitable title to.
The figures will Stand thus, omitting
Present Northern representation... 148
Present Southern representation on
three-fifths basi»........„... 85
If the. amendmcnt.be not adopted the
result will be as follows:
Northern representatives 138
Southern representatives...... 85
If tho amendment be ratified the re
sult will be as follows:
Northern representatives............. 163
Southern representatives ......70
At present the Northern majority is.......63
If no change in the Constitution is made
the. Northern majority, after the next!
apportionment will be............ 43
If the mendment be adopted the North
era majority will ba....... .........93
So the question is whether the North
is to have 93 or 43 majority in the
House of Representatives. If every
Voter has but one vote 93 will he the
majority If' the Southern voters arc
given two votes in consequence of their
injustice to the negroes and their, re
bellion, the Northern majority will be
Here, then, is the issue between the
President and Congress. The Presi
dent wishes to reduce tho Northern ma
jority in Congress from 93 to 43 by
giving two votes to every Mississippian
andLouisinnian, and three votes to ev
i^y South Carolinian.
If the amendment be not adopted all
the larger Northern States will lose two
members of Congress, and some of thfcm
will lose three. This is what the Pres
ident's "policv" means. The issue is
before the people. .,

letter from Mrs. Swlsahelra.
The President has been prodigal in
his abuse of Congress because of the
passage of the act increasing their sala
ry—a measure, by the way, which was
voted for by every Democrat and voted
against by a number of Republicans.—
In a letter to the Franklin (Pa.) Re
pository, from which some extracts are
printed below, Mrs. Swisshelm throws
some light on the reckless expenditures
of the Humble Individual:
One of tbe things which troubles the
unable individual is the increase of sal
ary of Congressmen. He "The umble
Individual," "The Tribune of the peo
ple," receives something less than one
hundred thousand dollars per annum,
in salary, house rent, and appropria
tions and salary of attendants, special
traveling facilities and other perquis
ites, while Congressmen get five thou
sand. The depreciation of the merits
of the umble individual, shown by this
arrangement, is an insult which, could
not be borne by any but a "umble In

for a succession of years, to win a clas
sical education and fit himself to do
honor to his country, gets full five thou
sand, and mileage, is a depreciation ot
tailors and the readin' and writin' qual
ification which ought not to be allow
To speak seriously on this subject,
more money has been appropriated for
President Johnson by Congress in its
last sess on than was ever before ap
propriated for any President during his
entire term. Elected for four years he
brings his family here and has no oth
er home to support. Here he has his
house furnished throughout and-the
greater part of his servants paid. Pres
ents of all imaginable kinds are thrust
upon himself and family and although
he made a parade of rejecting them at
first, he certainly has not persevered in
that policy for his friends, who are
proud to share his hospitality, boast
that he has ten thousand dollars worth
ot liquors in his sideboard. It is not
probable he would expend two-fifths of
his salary in liquor and this supply
was most likely furnished, as it is said
to have .been, by his admirers, as a
gratuitous endorsement of my policy.
Mr. Randall is an extensive liquor deal
er, and his Post Master Generalship,
and the contents of the sideboard may
have: some connection. It is also be
lieved that there are some women who
would have claims upon "the Tribune
of the people" if they were not provi
ded for by-commissions on pardons.—
Whether the cotton agents, who have
stolen two hundred million dollars worth
of cotton, have pocketed the entire pro
ceeds or divided with the appointing
power, which ha« steadily refused to in
terfere with their business, is a question
which ought to enter into the calcula
tion or perquisites.
It would require a very determined
ly honest man to resist the opportuni
ties presented to "The Tribune," to
make a large fortune and bis political
course does not place him above sus
picion. Congress did an unwise thing
in raising the salary of members but
they generally maintain their homes in
their own states and for whatever pe
riod of the year they are here, must
pay a full year's rent if not a full year's
board. A Congressman cannot begin
to support a wife and family here, in a
style common to an ordinary successful
merchant or professional man in a
northern ox western city, on the
salary they have been getting. A
furnished house such as are counted by
thousands in the three story blocks of
Philadelphia or New York, rents for
One thousand or twelve hundred a year.
The old slave stamp on the labor mar
ket runs up the cost of mechanics and
servants here to a degree of which
northern people have no idea. Every
thing in the way of work is on the plan
of one laborer and two overseers, and
all have to be paid. The marketing is
principally brought from a distance and
passes through the hands of several
middle mea before it reaches the con
sumer. Fnel is generally from one
fourth to one-third more than in Phil
adelphia. The wives of Congressmen
are brought into contact with the ladies
of the White House and of Foreign
Ministers, who always dress magnifi
cently and unfortunately, few of them
have the courage to adopt, and hold to
any standard of Republican simplicity
and a Congressman, who has nothing
but his salary, is not in a very envia
ble financial position even at five thou
sand a year. Until the people, them
selves cease to regard money and fine
clothes as tho standard ot merit, they
have no right to expect tbeir represen
tatives to estimate their office by other
rule than its emoluments.
Some of "The Tribune's" friends are
troubled about his recent speeches and
one of his prominent supporters says he
would willingly pay his hack hire to
get him home. Two clerks in the War
Department were arrested and plaeed
under guard for speaking disrespectfully
of the Cleveland speech.

Editors St. Paul Prett:
August 26th, 18G(.
GENTLEMEN :—After a very pleasant.
safe and successful journey across the
plains by the new Northern overland
route, I have the pleasure of reporting
to you, and through you to all rhe
friends of the expedition, our arrival at
this point this day.
The health of the party has been
excellent throughout, and out of all our
large number, we have lost not a single
person, and scarcely an animal.
News from the mines we are now so
near by is quite favorable and the peo
ple are in the best of spirits. Each
and all take a long breath, and inter
change congratulations over the good
fortune which seems to have attended
the expedition from first to last.
I did not hurry at all, because I
believed it more profitable to keep the
animals up in working or marketable
condition, as I have succeeded in doing,
so that now from this point we are in
shape to go where we choose and per
form any amount of labor before winter
This point is fast becoming a regular
mining town and business place of im
portance. My reception here by the
leading men of the place is, like thai of!|
'62 and '63, quite flattering and en-1
couraging after tbe cares and labors of
the long journey accomplished.
Most of my party wish me to carr"
out my iotentions originally expressed
—that ot moving into the midst of the
gold-bearing mountains and gulches
and there go into camp while we throw
out strong prospecting parties and ais
cover mines for our own occupation
and development. This I shall probably
do and after a day or two's rest here
shall move on toward the base of opera
We did not encounter or even see a
single band of Indians on our march
across, nor did we meet with even tbe
slightest accident to mar the general
pleasure of the trip. This is Sunday,
and is a day of rejoicing and rest to oifr
whole party. Steel's little detachment
is also here with us in good shape.
Tbe route I pursued may be said to
be in every way desirable and entirely
favorable for a stage, freight aad emi
grant road, and I trust that now at
least, after such a thorough test and
demonstration of these truths, that
our people of Minnssota by the aid oi
the government will push tbe matter of
a permanent location, construction anc1
protection of said route to a quick and
successful issue. What enemy of this
northern route can longer raise his
voice or his vote against its utility and
f, Thousands of returning miners and
merchants would, without hesitation,
choose it for their trip home to the
States, while it would, at tbe same time
control very largely the freighting and
travel coming out. Every man I meet
here, even St. Louis men themselves
acknowledge this fact.
Tell all my old friends that I rememl cv
them with firm resolves to reciprocate
their many favors and kindnesses, us
corljr oo tortuo* will admit. Please tell
the old croakers and ill-wishers that 1
forgive them tbeir tolly and madness.

On Monday night last the dwelling
house of Mr. Michael Galaghar, situated
three miles from the village of St. Ma
ry, on the Faribault road, was entirely
consumed by fire. The facts, as we
learn them from Dr. Gove, of this
place, are as follows:
A little after sun-set, on last Monday
evening, some men, who had been hunt
ing, called at the bouse, and one ol
them handed a loaded gun to Mr. G.'s
boy, to be taken care of. The boj- to»k
it into the house and put it under the
bed. A she laid tbe gun down, it dis
charged its contents snd set fire, in
some way, to a quantity of Kerosene
oil in a gallon can, wbicb stood under
the bed. In an instant, the bed. and
the walls of tbe room which were pa
pered, were in a blaze, driving ail the
inmates in the lower room out of doors.
Unfortunately two ot the children were
up stairs—a girl of twelve years, and
another of five. The older one raised
the window and jumped out. The
younger one, while climbing out feet
foremost, was caught by the falling oi
the window and held fast, with her head
and hands inside. Thefireand smoke
had already reached tho. chamber, and
the poor child was thus exposed to all
the fury of the fiery element, until a
ladder eould be obtained, when the
father went up and rescued her from
the horrible position. A who can
imagine the sufferings of the little one,
or the anguish of the parents during
those few terrible moments! Her head,
face and shoulders were terribly burn
ed, and her little hands were literally
charred. She died in less than two
hours after being rescued from the

—The Cincinnati Com mere«i/has a
neat way of putting a case. The En-
quirer, a copperhead sheet of that place,
asked it "how it was, if Louisiana was
out of the Union, that Habn and Flan
ders were admitted by the Congress ol
1862-3 to seats in that body from Loui
siana. And will it at the same time
tell us, if Louisiana is mere out of tbe
Union now than then
We ask the Enquirer how it was
that, if Louisiana was in the Union in
1862-3 and up to 1864, every Demo
crat in Congress voted for a bill to ex
clude her from the electoral college.
Will it answer the question And will
it at the same time tell us if Louisiana
