The St Louis Globe-Democrat says that " the contract providence awarded to the Republicans to run this country for another cpiarter of a century has only just begun." It is true that the execution of the contract has begun, but it does not follow that it will continue twenty- five years or five years. A higher and more potential providence has already awarded a more valid con tract to the Democrats to annul the first contract and to exterminate the contractors. And that the Dem ocrats will do without regard to providential or other contracts, They will do it of their own voli tion and by their own power. Memphis Avalanche.
