It is all important for us as a party de " serving success, that the most exact har mony and accord .should exist among those who are accounted its leaders and advisers. We ought to guard against division into cliques or factions, the ob ject of which is for the promotion of in dividual claims. Every true man who stands npon the Democratic platform, and is an earnest advocate of its princi ples, is equally entitled to the honors to be conferred by the party when his competency fits him for position. There is little need of bickering anl quarreling among ourselves over the spoils, when there is enough for all to " partake of, who desire to do so. Greedi ness is not generally a part of Democratic character; and when we have been mas , tered by such a dispositio.1, our fate must be that of the Radical party, which has so lately received defeat from that very cause. If we be true men, and honest to the noble purposes of our organization, we must govern our actions by a higher motive than the desire to hold office and get gain. The good government of the State is the first object to be obtained, and that can only be brought about by expelling from place and power every Radical now in office, and to so effect ually put our foot upon the party that it may never again pretend to raise its head. The political canvass that now is about to open up is one of great and paramount importance to the people of Tennessee. The Radicals are preparing to once more put their squadrons in the field, and we must be ready to meet them or again go under the prescriptive heel of that party. Shelby county is espe cially uncertain in its majority for the Democracy sometimes a few hundred only, and then again as many thousand. This is grcatly'owing to the interest and feeling that our people take in the elec tion. It is by no means set down that we are to carry the courfty by as big a majority this time as we did the last, yet it could be done by proper management and interest manifested by our voters. A large number of negroes were induced by their white friends at the last election to vote the Democratic ticket; hence the falling off in the Radi cal vote as is seen from the official re' turns. We have a clear majority with out the negro vote of five hundred in the county, and that can be increased when ever the good and sensible men of the county will consent to take matters in hand and carry the electiou as it should be. We should fire up and be ready for the race that must come off in this State next November. Whiir in Tennessee can't approve with FOUffflt t. ItCSCailVillC Oil . . . 1 , . 1 1 .

The friends of the respective candi dates for the Democratic nominations are eagerly engaged iu marshaling their forces for the friendly contest.

But industry will do a great Paris Sleepless and Excited at the deal and go a considerable distance in determining these friendly jousts for the Candidacy, and our friends cannot com plain that we have not advised them in j time to be on the alert.

On Thursday another great battle was fonght in the vicinity of Metz; and the Berlin dispatch avers in favor of the Prussian arms, which the lighter cohorts of the French were unable to withstand.

' It is a compre hensive commentary upon the national code of the last third of the 19th century. COL. C0LTAS TO TEE WHIGS. We recently noticed the fact that Col. Colyar had addressed a meeting at Chat tanooga, but that the report of his speech which reached us was so meager, we could not conjecture his course. Nor do we know now if he be willing to place bis name in the hands of his friends to be brought before the convention to as semble at N"atl)viiy on the 13th proximo. We have rather been impressed with the idea that Col. Colyar was not averse to the formation of a third party, and would not go before the Democratic Conven tion. A ppeech recently delivered at Winchester, and furnished the Union and American by a correspondent, under date of August 17, would go far to alter the opinion we had formed. Col. Colyar does not, in the slightest degree, hold out inducements to the Radicals, in his , plain talk with his old Whig friends of Franklin county: Where do we now stand and where must we stand? Things have changed, and the issues are entirely new. 1 want to lay down two or three propositions, and see if they do not lead to certain results. 1. The Old Whigs and Democrats of this State are acting together, and are united upon the questions which they are making. These questions have no more similarity to the old party ques tions than the laws of the Apostles do to the laws of pirates. The questions then grow out of dif ferences of opinion about banks, the tariff, and public lands. Now the only question made by us of a political nature is resistance to en croachment apoa the Conmitution, and the defense of our property from " un conscionable " and "swindling" bond holders. I quote these two hard words from Butler and Stevens. If we are acting together sod thiak ten hours till- nightfall. Bazaine was totally defeated., Loss on both sides 40,000, killed and wounded..
