Iaw Paw. Mwniti, Nov. 'J7, 1874 ( ne week ago last Weducbdav, Slier, ill Showcnnau rco ivrtl a telegram from (Jrnnd HaYeu. informing him that a man named Chri. or 'hriUipticr Qtm, who had stolen a borte from 1). C llodgtM of .South Haven, had beeu ar rotn' :md va held for his arrival to t:,h him into custody and bring him ii s : On hit arrival ;it Grand Haven, tin Miorill found QlUafl in the Jail at that place, lit WM dcliwnd over l the Suariff of Ottawa Comity aad i in our Jail uvaitin' hil trial. It will be recollected by the reader thl MMM time last summer a man nai uV. AuL'iiMtu Brant, who vu not 'vt r brigl.t. WM OVtftektS on the high way l v two vouug men, who had befl OVr at Dywgiac imbibing whinkey, Mand reapeetirely Vene Lewii and BtSOni Hall, VftO beat and maltreated Brant n that he died in a few feuUM thereafter. iie Lewii WM Dromptly eoovioted nA ol tr- St.tc lii.Miii fur ' , j illlt . twelve years. Hall was eonweteu nut w , ,,w trilll ! before sentence ODlaloea new uimi. . He waa ooavioted a aeoood time ana j . .. ,i Uimk Priam for fiva I ytars. Hall waa equally guilty with Lewii and many think he WOI eTOfl BON to UaMBC in the matter and de.Miwd tm it i pooiahDieot, Lewii w as a poor cuss and had no money nor frieoda to furnish it. while Hall had both. So goes the world in the matter of meting out eveu handed justice. T!,e theoiiesof po'itical responsibil iky w! icli have provided in this country, h:ive just now attached to them a pecu liar intereat, growiug out of the fact that the Democratic party which has,"of late, stoutly maintained this doctrine, has unexpectedly been awarded a brief period of trial, by which it must expect t) be judged by this doctrine of uuac C mutability which it has itself main I lined. The reason of this expectation iMfMlOt rest upon the theory of judging men out of their own mouths, but upon the circumstance which bai induced a cotwdcrable portion of the voting public to adopt for the time being what to them is a new party accountability. Thinking men recognize the fact that a political party is a mere co operation of eitiieu to give effect to certain thco rit - of Government by electing persons to ofltai who will direct the government according to those principles or theories. On the other hand UOit unthinking men reeegntftl the fact that a party is tOBM -thing whieb bta leaders, followers, an OCgaUtation, patronage and money The former or thinking olaefl b uite 1 NW y bouud by party ties, and is juite apt to despise political partnership too much to perceive jhat it is a practical MUDS of attaiuiug a desirable cud, while the latter or unthinking oltss seemingly cares Da ON for the SUOOOtS of their party than for the principles which underlieit. These imperfect views of a party ex plain why it is that in extraordinary . .1 .1 t Jill ' r r j a politic-an. and the party follower a patriot. The one perceives that his political views have become a necessity, and that he must earnestly work for them within the party that comes near est asserting them : while the other perotivos that a party is a mcaus and DOl ati cud. and that behind it lies the public welfare, which is more to him than any party tie or party allegiance. This latter class expect.- the most from this party. boOBUM thty render the most to it. When men huve given the veil, fealty and attachment that belong eos penonansy, wey ezpeoi m return l tiniiie of th'j ears and foresight and re pomibUity that also belong tu a pur- MBulity. Deprive them of tbk i r thwart their wishes and they become indifferent to the tic. that bind them to j arty, and deny its bindiug force. Something from Mr. Curtis.

These arc the people UDOfl whom knaves count to sc- cure iheir sctieuies. 1 be argument lllged by Mr. Dawes iu support of But-' ier was used two years ago in touth Carolina tor the support of Moses. It ends in election rascals to I ire us hon est government. Mr. Daw. said t'"-it ne uinercu with .butler unou in..uv tiucstiouB. What, fheu, even from his own point of view, vas to be caiued by , ii i t i, tu ma " l sending an unbroken Republican Masaa- i chusetts line to Congress if it was to be broken the moment he arrived r "With the present machinery of both parties, to insist upon sustaining the party, which means merely the regular-1 ly nominated candidates -udthe declar atious of regular conventions, is to in sist upon surrendering the Government, to aclioue of intriguers and traders. ' v i i ii hvery Democrat who supports the regu-; lar city tickot in iSew York kuows that he is voting only as Mr. Kelly aud Mr. John Morrissey choose; but he goes for it, Mr. Jimmy Hayes and all, because, iu Seuator Conkling's phrase, he thinks it the better of the two parties. Nowf way to sustain ana strengthen ana per- petuate a great party la to oppose and sera ton and defeat all its unworthy can didatcs. And why? Because if it is fouud that "regularity"' and "the party" 1 can not pull a bad man through, only good men will be nominated. To be-1 long to a party is not to .ocept and de fend every thing that may be done iu its name, aud to sur port all candidates who may contrive to secure its nomination ; it is to support its measures and its meu when, and when only, they are worthy Oi support." a. These words are worthy of the con sideration of the .Republicans, of Michi gan. The) conic from a man of rare intellectual force. They carry with tliriii the Wright of the practical confirm atiou they have received from the results of the recent elections. Mr. Curtis fully recognizes the force of the fact that the nartv sutlers evervtime its tua ohinory and the plea of "regularity' arc i . k - m useu to carry through obnoxious princi ples, of political action and meu who are identified with them.
