The Next President.
F»M lit Commonwealth.
If Grant and his party intend to
permit the electors who are to be
elected by democratic States to
Tote, and their vote to be counted
and reported by the radical man
agers in the Federal Senate, the
next President will be a ,democrat.
He roast be a true, firm, faith
ful, honest statesman. He mnst
be capable, educated, enlighteued.
He most bo true to th*» traditions
of the party Rince JeffersoD, and
of his " school " iu politics. He
must have tbo capacity for a
leader, tho will, the force, the cliar
Seter of a leadei.
If a large State like New York
or Ohio presents a candidate, it
will cost that candidate a large
outlay of 11 anticipated expectation* "•
to secure the delegation of his own
State. If a small State like New
Jersey or Delaware presents a can
didate, his anticipated expecta
tions are husbanded for general
circulation over nil the State«, for
the three votes from his own State
are secured by his being a candi
date.
The small State candidate is,
therefore, the better, as ho can be
thoroughly tested by critical ex
amination, free from the influences
which candidates from large,
{ jopnlous States are hidden be
lind, in any popular canvass. The
wise conrse for the democracy now
is to select the Presidential candi
date from a small State. This puts
the liominee before the country
free from all those complications
which are by no means to be
coveted at this time.
The great issues before the peo
ple are the restoration of constitu
tional government, and the over
throw of the outrages, abuses and
usurpations of the radical party.
These are the primal, vital issues,
and the nominee of the democracy
must bo sound and true on these
important questions.
We are rather inclined to be
lieve that a candidate from a small
State (geographically) is the most
likely to give, at this time, uni
versal satisfaction to the democ
racy of all the States.
To * WliigsT
"We copy the following from the
Opelousas Courier, of Jnly 24 :
In a recent speech delivered bv
Hon. B. H. Hill, the following elcT
3 uent and timely appeal was ad
ressed to those Southern men
who are quibbling about the name
of democrat, the speaker, himself,
being an old-line Henry Clay whig:
For twenty years a revolution
has been progressing. The strug
gle of 1370 will frnall? settle Uie
fate of this country. I'll« issue is
liberty or empire. The democratic
party is the only party now exist
ing ander whose banuer the friends
of constitutional liberty can rally.
Is that party agaiu to be divided ?
Is that party to march out for the
last great buttle with the enemy
with sounds of friends firing into
its'raukfi and with selfish leaders
thinking of nothing but the spoils
they may gather? If so, the bat
tle m lost und liberty will die the
death that knows no resurrection.
Non*, let me beg that self may be
abnegated, and the good of the
country only remembered, at least
until the country is safe. Let po
litical trailers nud intriguers for
bear to ply their avocations, and
let eftnh ooo of us suspect that pos
sibly other men mav have some
patriotism and wisdom, at least
until after the battle is over. For
two year«, at least, let us all agree
that the liest men shall be chosen
for the most important places, and
that the policy adopted by the
party ftball be assumed to be the
wisest policy.
No man can be less partisan
than myself. No man can bave
more decided convictions as to
what is the best policy for the
party to adopt, but no man will
support more cheerfully and earn
estly than myself, whatever may
' be the final authentic decisions of
the party, whether these decisions
accord with my previously ex
f reared opinions or not. For one,
am going into the great struggle
of 1876 with no concessions for
enemies and no ultimatum for
friends. I am willing to say to
the liberalized democracy of the
Uiuoe, what Buth said to Noami,
" Where thou gosst I will go, and
thy people shall be my people."
