This is the vote procured by an ac tive canvass, but it is no criteiian by which to judge the volunteer vote. The Republicans are on a sti'l hunt to take advantage of our feel ing of security and consequent leth argy and inaction. And indeed they reckon wisely, for if they work and we slumber that slumber may be as fatal to our party as was that of the hare in his race with the tortoise. There is no calculating the result of an election with such odds. Many of our people will neglect to vote unless eon meed that success depends upon their so doing, espe. dally if nothing is done to kindle the smouldering embci'3 of their patriotism. It is our duty to take steps at once to break up such fal low ground, and voto our lull strength. Our candidate for Congress has, uiuu recently, ttcen uetameu in Washington, and our elector will not be wiih us uutil the eleventh hour. The Ilcpublicans aio not more demonstrative than we and doubtless preler quietude whilejthey work the still hunt, iu which is their only hope. But the despera tion of their cause is the stimulus of their many still workers. In this couniy they have been coming in to register for some weeks in squads. We presume it is so iu other counties. This is the work of still hunters while the Democrats arc doing nothing. It won't do. We again insist upon prompt action to 'secure a lull Democratic vote. Dkjiocaxs, wake VP.
