Policy of the Democrats.
The Democratic executive com
mittee will not, it is said, meet till
after the Philadelphia convention,
to decide when and where the Na
tional Democratic convention shall
held. It is thns proposed to ad
here to the passive policy until all
the plans and purposes of tho Io-
jblican party in the Presidential
;-;jo are lully developed, and
therefore maintained that there is
ample time to call the Democratic
? r ventiou as late as August, and
thus give full opportunity for all
elements opposed to the continu
ance of the present administration
: unite in an opposition Presiden
tial ticket. This view of the course

proval, it is understood, of many
the Democrats of Congress.

boys their being enrly addicted to

is it that in this hind of bibles

there is so little morality in th
young gentry of the period? In
this town, for example, we can show
precocious examples of boys with
habits and vices which would hor
rify some of our etaid old farmers,
who in their simplicity it may be,

of the time when their boys will

We know of one in'tanno in
point which preaches a lesson more
powcrlul than tongue or pen. Some
fifteen years aro a woman was lef i
a widow with a family of children,
boys and girls. The boys were put

well. The girls sewed and tau.'li'

The time has come when the
Churches must cleanse their regis

the tearful truths ot the detenera i
