QMaTiy years since, a distinguished man,
whose eloquence and intellect shod an unfading
lustre upon his name, and who was recognised
as a fearless and high-minded leader of the
Democratic party, boldly declared I bat it was
held together only ty " the cohesive power of
public plunder." At that time the Democratic
party presented to the people a platform of
principles containing tangible and substantial
issues directly involving the great interests of
the whole nation. It advocated a particular
policy in reference to the taut!, the currency,
internal improvements by the General Govern
ment, and the distribution of the proceeds of
the public lauds. Upon all those qneslion it
was then a unit, and held tbo same opinions
North and South, East and If est But as it
was perceived that the Democratic dogHtts in
reference to these subjects were becoming un
popular in this or that or the other locality.
the unity of the party in regard to each and
all of these issues was broken, and now, more
emphatically than when Calhoun uttered the
sentiment, the Democratic party is held togeth
er only by the cohesive power of public plun
der. It has no other opinion or sentiment in
common. Individuals may think as they
please upon every subject of public policy, but
so long as they call themselves Democrats they
are imperatively required to vote for Demo
cratic candidates for office, and so lung as the
public plunder is the prize to be won they will
stand together as a Democratic party, " one
and indivisible." Patriotism is utterly out of
the question. Hie interests 0f the nation are
as dust in the balance compared with a party
triumph, and the lamentable apd disgraceful
spectacle is presented to the C3-es of the people
of a great, political organization without any
distinct and peculiar political opinions, held
together purely by mercenary motives and
controlled by despotism the worst of all
despotisms parly spirit.
When Fernando Wood said to the editor of
the New York Courier and Enquirer, just
previous to the mayorality election in 1 "1
know my party well. Were I to go home
and cut the throat of one of my family, I
should none the less be elected Mayor of
New York next Tuesday by five thousand
majority" he uttered a solemn troth, indica--ting
the extent to which party tyranny had
already l?cn carried by the Democratic leaders
and their reliance solely- upon the precision of
party drill and not upon the intelligence and
freed m of opinion of the people. Andwhec
John Cochrane declared, a few days ago at
Tammany Hall, that, "were Fernando Wood
a devil incarnate, the fact of las selection
as the standard-hearer of his -party is
enough to rally to his support the ranks of
the Democracy, the seutiment was applauded
by the assembled hosts of Democrats and
acknowledged to be soundly Democratic. Are
the Democrats of Kentucky willing to endorse
these sentiments ? Are they such abject
slaves to their party leaders that they dare not
vote in opposition to the candidate of their
party crew if he were a felon, or the devil
himself incarnate ? We ask them in serious
earnestness if such a party, or if any party
avowing -such infamous and despicable subjec
tion to arty tyranny, is fit to select those
who ar either to make or to administer our
laws. The sentiments uttered by Fernando

De Gentle at home There are few fami
lies, we imagine, anywhere, in which lovo is
not abused as furnishing the license tor im
politeness. A husband, father or brother will
Bpeak harsh words to those he loves best, and
those who love him best, simply because the
tecurity of love and family pride keeps him
from "citing his head broken. It is a shame
that a man will speak more impolitely, at
times, to his wife or sister than he would to
any otlter female, except a low and vicious
one. It is thus that the honest affections of
a man's nature prove to be a weaker protec
tion to a woman in the family circle than the
restraints of society, and that a woman usu
ally is indebted to the kindness aud polite
ness of life to those not belonging to her own
. household. Things ought not so to be. The
man who, becanpc it will not be resented, in
fliets his spleen and bad temper upon tlm e
of his hearthstone, is a small eoward, and a
very me.tn man. Kind words are circulating
mediums between true gentlemen and ladies
at home, and no polish exhibited in society
can atone for the harsh language ai d disre
spectful treatment too often indulged in be
tweep those bound together by God's own
ties of blood, and the i-tili more saerejJ b nds
of conjugal love. Life IMustrated.
A Uniform Currency. This is what
the people of the United States now are most in
need of. Let us have American industry duly
protected, and a national and uniform currency
and all will be well.
If there be one truth, above all others, well
settled in political economy, it is that if wc
would have our nation happy and prosperous, it
will have to be furnished with a sound, national
u n i form currency. It is as essential as uniform
ity is in our standard of weights and measures.
C urrency is the life-blood of the body politic.
Its supply should be equal and uniform.
Every throb of the heart is felt to the utmost

The Senatorship. The Washington
correspondent of the New York Times,
writes to that journal:
Advices from Louisiana indicate that
Senator Benjamin's chances of re-election are
diminishing, for the reason that the Democrats
of the western part of the State insist upon
haying a Senator from among their own
number. 1 his seems but fair, as the eastern
part of Louisiana is in the hands Of the
Americans, and the Democratic character of
the State is due entirely to the West.
Important Actioh. It will be seen by our
report of proceedings, that the House of Rep
resentatives has combinde in one bill provisions
repealing the acts authorizing the Bank of Mo
bile anb the Southern and Northern Banks of
Alabama to issue notes for less than $5, and
prohibiting the circulation within this State of
the notes of banks of other States less than
that denomination'. It has, rlso, by another
bill, restricted the" Free Banks" in the same
manner. Both these bills were yesterday or
dered to be engrossed for a third reading, by
vote indicative of their final passage Mon
Who gains by thr, over-importation of
jorcign goods, ana the consequent, over

The Federal office holders, who. under the
Sub-Treasury system, receive their salaries
in gold and silver, while the general value of

corresponding with the depreciation of bank
paper and reduction ot property.

of the means of earning his daily bread, or is

These are the fruits of excessive importa

of foreign pauper labor, instead of protecting
American labor. Philadelphia News.
