Democrat, Dear Sir:—Permit me, to t;ik<!this means for thanking the friends who nominated me for City School .Superintendent, nL the caucus held last. week. The spirit exhibited on I htiL occasion was so hearty and yet so different from the feeling shown since liy others as to justify a few words in regard to my position. I yield to no man in interest in the pub lic schools, and should I he elected would devote what energy and ahil ity I possess towards performing (he duties which properly fall upon the otlicer referred to. I deny that the interest I feel in Ihe proper eduction of the youth of the city is therefore small because I have not lived all my life, ora large portion of it in these corporate limits, or because I have not grudgingly paid large taxes, or because I have not had the snows of more than fifty winters showered up on my head. Jf those things are really ‘‘held for a condemnation to me” I shall cheerfully wait for time, the great l.eveler, to remove them. Let me add, that I have never sought any position here or elsewhere, and have never desirid to be a candi date until after numerous friends had solicited me to become one. Having been nominated I should prefer elec tion to a defeat but shall gracefully, as I may, submit to either event. Very Itesdcctfully (i. \V. Eti'.t.D. Dudgovillo Itomo.

I Your correspondent on looking over our city papers of last xveek discovers ! that the battle to be fought at our ! near approaching city election is wax ing into a considerable feeling of interest, and if outside talk is tube taken as a true index of popular opin ion then lias the conviction become pretty general that our city govern ment is a most degenerate humbug! j Talk, however, as everyone knows I who has the least practical knowledge |of human nature, is clump; hut when ! brought to a voting test on elec tion day,especially when some smoth ered prejudice has cropped out, or some pieayunisli self-inten st steps in, as moral blinders, previous vaporings of moral obligations and public duly arc for the present thrust aside, to he taken up xvith a flourish of self abne gation at some future period, when talk again lias its How, until the time of action, and tlien forsooth comes an ebbing xvavo that again carries with it assumed manhood and counterfeit honor; there to remain until some future How shall bring these decep tive accomplishments to the surface for another parasitical display. And yet to an outsider—one xvlm iias not become familiarized xv ith the bluster ing I uror of a portion of our temper ance champions just before election and the sudden collapse that usually follows these inflated exhibition of zeal in the temperance reform move ment at tho polls—would naturally conclude the that wlx, as a law-abiding community and order-loving people, were in dead earnest for a light, and were only wailing for an opportunity to measure strength with our adver sary, and that “Victory or Death” was to he tho shibboleth of the onslaught, fll fortunately this bright picture of manly firmness lias heretofore proce ed a myth, as it is now pretty gener ally incoded Dial had abundant assu rances of moral courage and positive determination lieen faithfully and honestly carried out on the part of those xvlm claim a monopoly of the reform spirit, at our city elections when licensed demoralization was at tempted to he put on its good behavior by ordinance regulation and police x igilance, xve would not have been as xve are at this day and hour, hampered by a majority Council directly or indi rectly interested in the promulgation and consuination of an unrestricted and unrestrained diabolism that lias during the past year had a rampant reign in this city. It is also a liumili aliug fact that ‘hachanaliaiis’ of every grade and stripe—the high and the low. the rich and the poverty stricken; verily, from those who should at all tnnou ho Well balanced in mind and steady in gait, down to the darkey in ids tatterdemalion costume, ail have tho carousing freedom of the city, xvitli a free tight thrown in. Even Sunday ‘‘shines no Sabbath day” to tins motley crew of rollicking revelers, and not unlike Macbeth's witches, xvho, in a vein of musical symphony, can all sing I lie churns that xvas snug by those conjuring worthies while in a dark cave, marching around a boiling cauldron into xvhieh was respectively thrown an incantation offering, as an evidence of their sin cerity. II i.slrux that this witchery scene and the chorus that xvas sung cannot he claimed as a Christian rite, nor as an excmpliller of sound 111 mi!'., and still it is suggest ive of what can ho done in this our generation; hence your cor respondent will give it Hhe chorus) as reported by Shukspeare, xvho undoubt edly was present during the cere mony ; All sing; “Double, double toil and t run hi; Eire burn; and, cauldron bubble." After all, it is comforting to know that xve have a peace utlicer under the pay of the city, xvho front Saturday night, to Monday morning is on the xx alch to see that no outside inter loper shall disturb or in any xvay inter fere wiWt these holy day and night j . >1 i Heat ions.
