Kdb aeit, fotthe Si W5hbM D emocracy; Our Only Salva tion, Democracy is that form of govern r. ment in which the supreme power is lodged in the hands of the people. It means that and nothing else. Its great principle are the deep and broad foundatio;im upon which our grand, oble, magnificent national struc ture was reared. Thisis undeniable. "We, the people of the Unit ed States, do hereby ordain and es D tablish &c." Thle people, collective p' ly, are the authors of its existence. oo Any government which is not center no ed in the people, as a whole, must N be a monarchy, an aristocracy or an oligarchy. No man versed in the on history of political parties, in this o' republic, from the adoption of our Federal Constitution to the year 1860, a will deny that every party which en t* tered the political arena of the na tion t9 contest for, and obtain, the privilege of directing the course and shaping the policy of our govern ment, professed to he guided by, and oo to act in accordance with, those prin ciples, whether that party went by the name of Whig, American, Repub i;(lýan or Democratic. ' hose parties differed widely, it is true; not, however, in the fundamen tal principles of a true reptiblican form of government, such a.s.ours .e was intended to be, but in the under r standing and application of those t, principles. The qubstions of nation al banks,, tariffs, internal imp;ove. meats, &c., all sprang out of a diver gence of opinions occasioned by mis interpretation and misapplication of those principles by the one party or 0 the other, and also, mainly by a differ eat construction placed upon the ar; -3 ticles of our constitution. 2 "What's in a namer" The, great objection by many to whatever hore the name of Democracy, arose fromw confounding men with principloe ;ý in N taking the shadow for the substance, . and freo their repu'ginance to car |tlin individuals whom they looked ;upon as the embodiment of those principles, and thus strenuoutly op ' osing and denounacng them as bid or and unsound, because their advocates Il were personally objeetionable. We care little to "what party name the successful candidate belongs who is elevated to the Presidential chair in 1876--provided he be elected by a party advocating the doctrine of State rights; the Democratic dogma, that "The powers not. delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to. the States respective Sly, or to the people." As long as parties remained nation al in their purpopos, and impartial in their views, theUnion was safe. But the moment Co)gress undertook to legislate for one section of the Union, to the detriment of the other, then there was danger ahead, such as Pat Srick Henry and others foresaw, at an Searly day. The strife began in 1819, w- when the Miseolpri coihpromise meas r ure was first broached, and went on from bad'to worse, until it culmina ted in the late civil war. Were not even the great opponents of Democracy, Clay ahd Webster, satisfied with the Uni's as it was? Were not .their admiration and love for it intense and deep-rooted Wias sot the object of their affection and, Vrenedation that same Union which Shad grown and strengthened and be Scome great, powerful, prospereous and Sglorious, under the fostering eare and I' guidance of Democratic principles, for b over seventy years ? Was it not that Union of whlich Mr. Webster spoke when he said: "It is to that Union a we owe our safety at home, and ouar - consideration and dignity abroad. It I is to that anion that we are deeply indebted for:whatever makes as most I proud of our country. Every year of its duration has teemed wiih fresh proofs of its,nutility and its blessingi and although our territory has stietch ed out wider and wider, and oar pop- I ulation spread farther and farther, they have not outran its protection or its belieits-it has been to us all a copious fountain 6f national, social and personal happiness." Yet the party who produced such bene8ficent results has been consider ed dead, and buried so deep, that even the remembrance of its glorious work could never call' it back to life again. Men change and die, butli great principles are. immutable rpd eternal. Had Democracy remtained in power, there never bould" havey been a civil war, and the immense i quantity of blood and treasure apeat in fraternal strife, would nbt bh' the aviersal objects of regret n:Uow. 'Is there an honest and patrideotic old line I Whig in exiseence, . who would not a i thousand times prefer the governmnt of twenty yeats ago, than-the govern2 aeat ofto-dilay.' When was it ever seen that a Democratic Presidentsat Jompted to overturn a State govern ment and drive, by force of biyouets, I represllentatives out of the legislatures to which they had been fairly.teced by their pedple? When was it ejer 1 known that a Democtatic :Colgreas, obeying the commsadof a Democrat ldedeat legislated fot ellpnr I l~en atf the latelllgsnt Cans I I~n e.,who~qeneilth~ rat~ nai 4r has[M L- been a President elected by a majori ty of white voters in the United States. Facts and figures prove that. I is If this great nation "is to endare much longer as a Repiublic, Indeed ; if Louisiana, Arkansas and Miasissip d pi are to become once more free and sovereign, and be restored to their original footing of equality with the other States in the Uniop ; nay, if the other thirty-five States are to preserve and maintain themselves as independent States, and not as con quered provinces, it muist be- done by virtue of Democratic principles. it Democracy is the only salvation for n all the States in this great eonfedera ae cy.

It is now at hand, before us in a aten e ographic report of his testimony be fore the Congressional Committee, in o0 ew Orleans. lie testifies that on the 25th of July last, when the Radicals held a Convention in this city, the whites held a meeting in the Firemen's Hall. "They were all armed." To the question propounded by Mr. Marshall, how did he know that? He answer ed that he: could see them through the window. Granting that lie did kl look through the window ; from where he stood in the Court House, he could have seen but five or six persons at It most-yet he says they were all armed, and that "he understood they were i-. bere for'the purpose of assassinating the delegates of that convention who shouldnomidate candidates for Dis trict.- Ju4ge, and Parish Attorney." That is a base slander and an infa mealli&d 4Every white mas..knew it thatMere 'Was no proclamation for d sa eittion' to those offices, for the benefit of Hungry Cur Myers, and that tbere `'ould be no nomination o 'made therefor, by the Radicals. There was, therefore, no necessity of any killing for that reason. It is evident to any one who reads his testimony, th,t he is capable of understanding b but one thing; to tell anything but the t ruth, and yet he is a minister of God I. He states further, that "the . Committee of Seventy dad examined e his publio acts and found nothing worthy of complaint against him;" that shortly before the election,the Republicans held a mass meeting, that one matn drew a pistol on anotmh er, lie .Was afraid there would be a feos, he went right through the crowd and Democrats came running out With shot guns and pistols;" yet they didn't kill the villaint That "up t.o June last, I think there was not a gentleman in that place, if I had ask ed hit to loan me five hundred or a thousand dollars, without my note, I A don't think he would have refused ;me.." Why ! that is 'more than .the whites would do for their own race. i1 And yet, this persecuted Parson, against whom nothing wrong was found; who, went right through a crowd when Democrats came rushing Siot 'With shot guns and revolvers ph. could, up to last June, borrow large sums of money from the whites, 'ldas easily as' rolling off a log," when Sthe whites cannot do it, in many in stances, with the best of guilt-edge paiper; this honest, brave, piirse Sbolder of the whites, declares upeon oath, that he cannot say how many ties he iad to escape from his honse; .'
