This is desirable. But, to give us this heuest platform would have required a more united Demo cratic vote than wo had any riht to look for w heu the returns of the conirossional election showed a Democratic majority f sixty-nine in the House of representatives. When we suecccd in getting a Dem ecrauc preaident and a Democratic Congress, we may expect a fair ad jatment of the tariff and a irtneral refrni in other matters, looking to the interests of the people. It U folly to talk about ruling Randall out of the Democratic par ty w hen we make no complaint of Southern Democrats w ho are warm advocates of ur present banking system. The banks have dope more than the tarin" in concentrating the wealth'ofthe country on tha few. It is the banking system that has built up a monied aristocracy which control our elections and appoints cur judges of the lT. S. Supreme Cou rt. Whilo we regard tariff reform as a great necessity, we think there arc ther evils that first demand correction by the Democratic party. We can never hope to destroy mo nopolies until we can succeed in de feating the Republican party. Our chances would be as good for secur ing tariff reform under the leader ship of Tilden or Randall as they would under Morrison or McDona'd. Suppose Mr. Randall had aked that sugar be plated in the Morri hou bill, imposing a tariff, looking to revenue only, does anybody suppose that Louisiana anil Texas Democ racy w ould have voted for any such proposition ?

If tho Nashville Hor. represent an I reflects anything, it is supposed to reproeut and reflect the political picutiments of Gyr. W. B. Rate and the Kxecutivo Committee. Tho ed itor of the JlcniU ii no ignorant of the World hatred for, and italibel t,n assAulU tian, all Democrats why honor am ludall and Uaro t'tgU fur tho itrszjUss JsJutrici President. Democrats who had served under tho leadership of Hor ace Greeley in lsTl'. have no reason to be iliss'atisfied if either cd' the alove tickets ahould lo nominated by the Democratic National Con vtnti'pii. Wo had no reason, in J -T-, to look for the support of any Demccratic principle, if Mr. G'reoley had beeu elected; then wo were making a fight to get rid of frauds and corruptions, io prevalent amoqg the heads of departments and other oihcials. That is tho prime object of tho Democrats iu tho proscnt presidential contest. il.e success of tho Morrison bill in tho ljwtr House of Congress would not have gireu t'o Ieat hopo for tariff re form. Nobody expected any such bill could havo p:ised tLo Senate, aud tho only good that could jvossi fcly rcfiult froni iu pissjigo wuuH right and privilege. Yet the truck ling Rate organs must jounce upon him nod larup him around, and by their low, scurrilous insinuations at tempt to drive him out of tho Dem ocratic party, for whoso principles he has gallantly fought and made sacrifices lor years. The question claimed to havo been put before by the Ho;7 escapi cd John Helms' attention. Other wise he would have unhesitatingly answered then, as ho answers now, that the appointment of John Helms or any other competent represcnta tive of the political ideas eutertaui" ed by John Helms would havo been evidence to a very respectable por tion of the Democrats party of Tennessco that the new jrovernor was not narrow-minded and jealous iu his politics, but conservative and harmonizing. If a solitary man, representing the State credit, eld line JetVcrsenian Democracy had res ceived recognition from Mr. Rate, John Helms would never have rais ed his voice in complaint of his re nomination for Governor. Rut tho whole effort of Gov. Rato has been to throttle and kill the State credit element of the party that elected him. Prom coal oil inspector to the chief of the bureau of education, all of his appointments and bosom companions are of the repudiating school. None others receive reeog uiti'iu whatever from him. It is no secret that John Helms has been, since his llrr-t entrance into journal ism, thirty-five years ago, a State credit Democrat, olldi sacrificing his own private pinions for tJio sake of harmony and success, but now with the oxperienco of 3-cnrs before him, when he sees fit to ex press his convictions openly and inn depcndcjitly ho must be jo'inccd upon by the whole pack, from cujucaling (ic-o to yelping curs, whose only weapons are traducing and slandering those they cannot others wise injure. The first tune John Helms wis ever brought in contact with Wm i t..i .t.:in ii. . enally intelligent compositor in the far end of the composing room eung cat, "Roys, when did Rate say he would set up the coffee?"' Rate, as calm as Sphynx, was not disturbed by the appeal. To be brief, there was no coffee set up bj'Rate, and tho employees of the Union and American, at that time, will bear us witness of the witty expressions of indignation and contempt for the indifference aud callousness of the attorney general indulged in by the 0038 when that exalted functionary made his exit. Notwithstanding the cutting comments of his co-la-liorers, John Helms, compositor that night, Sunday as it was, and weary and tired as ho was, neglect ed to indito his usual daily letter to his wife in order to send to a Knox ville paper a complimentary tribute to tho great speech of Wm. R. Rate. Rut John Helms' effort to harmo nize Rate in this way, was love's labor lost, as it is now. Attorney general Rate got it into his head that John Helms had something to do with prompting the remarks of tho inconsiderate but phenomenally intelligent compositor. It must have been this. We can imagine noth ing else. Long thereafter he pass ed us and repassed us on tho streets as a stranger, and we passed and repassed him as one who had com" plimentad him not wisely but to much. To John Helms, personally, Gov. Rate has shown no ingratitude, and has never been charged with it. To a great body of the Dcmrcratic par ty and to other individual Demo ocrats, as good and better than wo are, it has assuredly been otherwise. Take, for instance, the case of Capt. J. C. Hodges. As a State Senator from this district he voted more than forty times to make Wm. R. Rato V. S. Senator, and many of these ballots were cast in the face of written and verbal protests from -a large number f the Democratic party of the district. Hut Captain Ilodgos, truo as steel, when he is a friend, stuck to Rato and fell in tho last ditch with him as he did with the fortunes of the Confederacy. Time passed on, and Rate was elect ed Governor, (by the grace of tho State credit Democrats, for tho sake of harmony.) Capt. Hodges, while he had stood impregnable as a stone wall forty-two ballots to make Rato a United States Senator, firmly re tained from the authority named, and it is much less damaging to Gov. Rate's character as a courteous, af fable man, as we give it, than the language repeated to us. Captain Hodges represents but one of the entire State credit, anti-free trade party. Wheu Gov. Rate took the oath aa Governor wo believe he de termined, as far as he had power, to throttle, displace and politically kill everyx Democrat who did not en dorse the contracted and mischiev ous political ideas of tho faction that nominated him. Ho won't win at it. Reasoning from Mr. Cherry's World, Rob Taylor's trip to Nash ville, if it results in nothing else, will most likoly result in keeping him for a few months in the politi cal front. It will probably secure him a place as one of the Rate can- that his presence in the throng o Arthur Republicans w-ould not at tract the slightest attention. Possibly Hayes was there. If ho was there, ho heard his name mentioned only in tho phraseo of insult, and received by' the audi ence onlv with derisivelaughter. To intensify his humiliation, the insult came from Beecher: "When Hayes took the Presidential chair (laughter) Stop, gentlemen, stop t? while; when Mr. Hayes was elected President, the country had been scourged with the fires of war, and 'as a physician applies sweet oil and poultices to the skin of a scalded man, the nation needed a poultice; and it had it." (Laughter.) Then again, as the merriment of the business Republicans increas ed; "Little as yon may think ef Mr. Hayes, he did us a good work: and he did it by doing nothing. (Ap plause and laughter.) We slept, (laughter;) he slept; he is not dead; he sleepeth yet. Renewed laugh ter.') This was the tribute of the Cooper Institute mass meeting to vasscrs. It must be a grim happi ness that Rob Taylor enjoys in tho the poor fraud, whose name cmer rafleelion that he jrets the coveted es lrom oblivion now- only to be -0 .... position through the gracious conde cursed or flouted Tho contempt of his fellow Re publicans has been piled high on Haj es ever since he took the office which was stolen for him. scension of Mr. Cherry's peniten tiary organ.

John Helms and eight or tcu other compositors were put upon the manuscript on u Sab bath morning. It (tho manuscript) was long, and sophomoric of course.

Ho was, bow-ever, an ap plicant after his installation as Gov ernor for an wlllce ho is as compe tent to fill, honestly and efficiently, as either of tho present incumbents, to say the least about it. After waiting for some time to hear from his application Capt. Hodges wroto to our State senator, II. M. Sher wood, asking him to call on Gov. Rate and mako inquiries as to the fato of his application. Senator Sherwood told us, soon after his re turn home at the close of thobession, that when he called to interview Rate on the matter he was reccivod with an indifference in tono and manner that amounted to absolute discourtesy, and that Capt. Hodges' application was actually spoken of iu derision and hooted at by the functionary occupying the office (by tho grace of tho Stato credit Demo crats and for the sake of harmony,) of Governor of Tcuucsscc. It is but justice to Capt. Hodges to say that this entire reference to him is made without his knowleJge or expecta tion.
