The Nati. Dial Rcplihllcail l oli vent ii in at Chicago was ioi:g drawn out, but the work attempted, that of pulling in the political iield an invincible ticket, was well done. Much cart! was taken in the d-hl,-etauons, and the body composing the Convention was an exception ally abie one. The names pre sented from which to choose stand ard bearers were so captivating that it challcngi d ,' nerve, to select or reject. The Convention lasted from Tuesday noon to Monday eve ning, and yet but eight ballots tor Presidential candidate weve cast, and only one lor tlie Vice Presi deiitial nominee. The Mb ballot stood as follows : Harrison ..VM Sherman 116 Alger UK) ( iresham o'J lilainc 5 jMcKiidey 4 In '70, Hayes was nominated on the 7th ballot, receiving J84 vutes.

As Harrison as sures the swingitij ot Indiana into the Republican column, so Morton will be elevated lo the proud posi tion to which he points by the ad ditional votes ot the Empire Stale. Yt'hile we believe that any juul i tied Republican could be elected on the protective issue, btill we are prwud that so very a respectable ticket has been prei eiited. i !:. -::!'.

' Washington and his compatriots built well ; it has been said " they builded better than they knew.'' Yet they left entrraited in their gov ernmental fabric germs ot disease which were nurtured until they permeated ever' iimb ot the gov ernment, became gangrenous, und had to be heroically dealt with. The sick part became as arrrogant as offensive, and the National' life was only saved by the sacrifice ot 500,000 of the bravest of our bous, by involving a National debt of 3,000,000,000. Rut, thank (iod, American slavery was wiped out and the political and moral law we had so long violated was tearfully but righteously attoned for The fathers had, unknowingly, sown to tlie wind, and their posterity wan forced to reap tho whirlwind The lesson was taught us and tlie world that no man can long maintain his own freedom while denying the (iod given right to others no na- llic tiiumut inhabitant as now n more, 'I hat great soul was foiie.

We learn that h o of our De mocratic readers took exceptions to an editorial which appeared in out last issue. We did nwt mean to be understood as saying that the lack of certain rudiments in our educa tion ari gov al character deprived us ot tho essentials to ecpiip us as a Demociat, only the aids indicat ed. We never went to the extreme that the erstwhile Democratic can didate for President, Hoi ace Greo 1 -y, did, when he said, "All Dc niocrats aro not horse thieves, but all horse thieves are Democrats'." JNT-"rd.. we hold that all the honor a?rd virtue in the land have Repub lican labels on them, and that all pollution -.111,1 corruption" are con fined to f'.ie Democratic party. We could not so hold ifi the 'pre sence of sheep in our own political to.tl that would make a Demo cratic tan-yard smell bad. There must be two political parties in this country, but the necessity fer the Democratic party passes our com prehension as does that for the ex istence of bed bugs. But it is in volved in the inscrutable Provi dence of God, and we will contin ue our warfare on bugs and demo crats, not from personal resent ment but against their methods. living the boon to ailv class of it's citizens -that tlie justice of (iod will not sleep forever. A great and an immortal Cap tain was at the wheel of State when peril threatened ; he sound ed the alarm bells, and tiie re spon se was like a rushing torrent. The world looked on in wonder ment, scarcely knowing which to admire most, the alacrity shown by our sons in donning ttie blue, the heroism exhibited by them on the field ot carnage, or tho rapidity with they turned their ''spears in to pruning hooks.'' While the sol diers ot the Union endured pain, imprisonment, disease and death their mothers, wives, sisters and daughters exhibited Spartan forti tude. History never has recorded, it never will record a more valor ous cwntest. From out the smoke of battle our Flag emerged more Instruís than ever, commanding respect abroad and such reverence at home, from Ocean to Gulf, that an insult to it would bo taken as a personal afiront to our every indi vid'ial citizen. Let Ihoso who can, picture the United States two centuries hence, when it will be peopled by three hundred millions of sovereigns, whoso freedom, power, intellect and moral worth will till the whole earth with the harmony of it's ciy ilixfition, and it's music ascend to the sphere whero it will titillate the ear ot the editor of the only reli gious journal in New Mexico the Lincoln County Lh.vdkr tonus only 2 a year in advance.

Under tiie decision of a Kansas circuit court a man named Jesse MeFarland is in prison for keeping a concubine. Under a de cisión of the Supreme Court of the same state the woman is his lawful wife. When he comes out of pris on at the end ot his term ho will be m a fix. Under the ruling of the circuit court he cannot livewithhis wife, and under the ruling ()f tlie Supreme Court he must supjxirt her. He cannot be divorced be cause the circuit court says ho is not married, and lie cannot marry another woman because thr. fsn. preme Court says he is already married. Unless the two courts hold a caucus and agree upon a plan of campaign the most sensible thing for MeFarland to do is to re fuse to be turned out of the peni tentiary ai the expiration ot Jiis term.
