They give no reason why they want to bo saved, nor do they promise to better our condition. The only real reason they have for electing Bate is, that he was a General in tho Confeder ate Army, belongs te? thefChivalry, and hence he must be supported. Whenever the Democratic party is united, on a sound platform, and advocates the necessary re forms in our government, and gets out of the old ruts, and quits using the Union Democrats as the Re publicans ure "the man and broth er," then it v. ill be invincible. It will never be so as long as it is run by the Chivalry 'mob and biich nu.li as Bate. The Democrats in East Tennes see who were Union men occupy the same place in the Democratic parly that the colored men do in the Kepbliean party that is, they do the voting, while the other fel lows hold the offices. . This is especially so in "loyal Blount." If there i ; a chance for a Union Demoerat to be elected to aivolliee, say Jitsiieo of the Peace, or something of the kind, one of the Chivalry must run, and if he cannot be defeated any other way, tho aforesaid Chivalry will try- to combine with the Republicans to defeat him. Wll, well, let these Chivalry fellows go on. They will soon see who it is makes the Democratic strength in East Tennessee, when they have nobody to vole but themselves. CAMPAIGN NOTES.

Editoiis DmocnAT: We Appreciate the opportunity to five your readers another sketch from the Lone Star Slate. Wc mi fierce! from a serious drouth from (he lOlh of .Tunc to the lllh of July. Vegetation was about all "parched to death," the corn crop was badly injured, water for Mock was getting very scarce, ami the grass on the prairie would have taken lire, as in the Fall of the year. But since the eleventh of July wc have not only had some rain, more rain, and most rain, but wc have had great torrents of rain. And should it con tinue to rain much longer, the cotton crop will be greatly injured. It is estimated that the corn crop, not withstanding llic drouth, will aver age 23 or 30 bushels per acre. Wheal and oats were damaged by tiic rust, po the yield was not so good as was expected before harvest. The bow-worm is making its appearance. Should they begin this early and be very numeioas, great destruction will be done to the cotton crop of this country. The peach and girpe crop litis year is very fine both in qnar.ti ty. The continued wet weather and hot sun has infested the country with malaria, and hence billions and in termittent fever abound in many lo calities, but it is not very fatal. Politics is on a boom here now. Gen. Weaver, the champion, and dis tinguished leader of the Greenbatk Labor party, passed through this couirfy not long since, making speech es, and confirming his followers and making many new converts to his political faith. The General is a man of rare attainments; his speech es were eloquent, forcible and im pressive. Wc were a lit lie amused at his apology for going to the Green back party. He said he "lirst be longed to the Free-Boilers ; (hey till ed their mission and passed away. He next belonged to the Republicans, and they soon must die; and as there was no difference between the Re publicans and the Democrats on the finance question, he could not go to the Democrats." He said he was like the young man who had two sweethearts. He called on one to see her to church, but she had company, so he called on the other, and she had company ; and so the young man moved oli'lo church alone. And soon ho was called on to iray. lie knelt down and s.dd, ' O, Lord, I come to Thee this night because 1 bavo no where else to go." That was his reason for being a Grccnbacker, be cause he had nowhere else to go. The Greenback party is rapidly growing in Texas, and they seen- lo be sanguine of soon meeting with success. John Ireland, Democrat, and Wash Jones, will try their strength before the people in Novem ber, for Governor. We heartily congratulate "Old Blount" in her selection of county officers. Wc believe them all to be good and tr uc men. Although we are far away, yet wc feel an interest in the success of our native county. It appears from the Loudon county conrenlion that L. C. Ilouk is to make another trip to Congress. Lei him go; he is the right man in the place. More anon. F. M. Wi nn. Alvarado. Texas, July 21, 1SS2.

D. B. Myers, AN INCONSISTENCY. The main argument made to in duce Democrats to support the action of the June convention is based upon the' alleged representative character of that body. Thta is an argument which docs not now appeal to the best j ulgnient, but to a sentiment which obtained when Democratic conventions were jealous of Demo cratic doctrines and dared not depart from the true land-marks. The sen timent is a proper one when it ppriugs from a confidence which has not been betrayed, but, although it still lingers in the minds of many, it has at this time no such firm founda tion. The argument, however, will be .persistently made for all it is woi ill. Waiving for the nonce a discussion of (he pc-'iliar methods adopted in many of Ike counties to deprive the .Stale credit minorities of representa tion, Ictus see how this argument works. It is a palpable (ruth that Iho con vention in iis deliverances did not re flect the views of the Democrats of Ihe h'talc, high-tax or low-tax. liven thewish-a-wash abd the Flanigans were not thrilled with cestac over a platform which sacrificed everybody's opinions for ihe sake of inharmoni ous harmony. Bat our friends claim Ihat (he con vention being representative, as shown by the report of tho Commit tee on Crcdenlials, all Democrats are therefore bound (o endorse its action, however unobjectionable or prepos terous that action may be. Did it ever occur to the men who make this argument that it applies a koktioin to Ihe action of the legislature which they seek to overthrow ? Oh, but the debt settlement made by tho Legi.sla I ure Is not in accordance with the views of lh5 people! But is not the Leginhiturft a representative body, properly empowered by the Constitu tion ? Are not ihe members regular ly elected and accredited? If Dem ocrats are bound lo subscribe to an absurd and ruinous policy simply because the delegates to tho conven tion were not armed with credentials, are not the citizens of the Slate, by the same argument, under much greater obligations to respect a law enacted by I lie Legislature, especially when thai law is approved by a ma jority ol the people? If it is held that a contract made by a representa tive Legislature can be violated with impunity, cannot Democrats repudi ate (he folly of a convention which lost it.-; head in a whirl of excitement ? Is a law, a solemn contract made by the Stale wilh her creditors, less to be regarded than the dictum of a party convention heedlessly led into errcr? The claim, lo parly support on the mere ground of numerical representation, while disregarding every right consideration, is un:-ub-slaniial. Suppose the convention had on'i'sifiod in its platform a resolution favoring (he building of a bridge lo (he moon a no less impossible pro vision llian some, resolutions really adopted would the convention slill be regarded as representative and its action landing upon Democrats? In truth the convention was not repre sentative in a rightful tense. It may have re 1 1 rc.se n ted some Democrats who preferred men above measures, or w ho esteemed place above parly, but il ditl not represent the brain and heart and common sense of Democ racy. Wc believe and know that a niajorify of the delegates were moved by an honesl desire to harmonize and reunite '.he party, but under the pecu liar circumstances, when rash expedi ency ruled Ihe hour, and unwise and indiscriminate counsel made confu sion worse confounded, I hey were in duced to take action which' precludes i lie very cnu uiey hail in view. Many of Ihem have admitted Jhat thev do not now approve of what was done. 'o convention is representative that does not reflect Ihe view?; ol'lhe parly. 1 1' Democracy is bound by the June Convention, il. is bound by' (he policy it adopted and not by Ih-i men who composed it. Tho argument on the ground of numerical repreiculnMon confutes itself. Nashville American. The Tennessee Ii inds.

Notwithstanding tho c-offfliclfng re ports which come from Kanea? re specting tho enforcement of the prcn hibilory law, there is no doubt but that it Is as well Enforced an other criminal laws outside of a few cities A correspondent of the Chicago Inter Ocean, who spent three months in Central and Southern KunBao, travel ling the entire length of the State from Atchison on the Missouri River lo tho frontier, fifty miles west of Dodge City vieting county scats and many of the larger towns says: I have hail a favorable opportunity of learning the workings of prohibition, in Kansas. The piohihitory law Is enforced with fully ao much vigor na are other statutes. Many violators of the law have been arraigned be fore the courts; numerous convic tions Lave occurred, with fines of $100 for each offence, and cost3 often amounting to 150 more; and even whete there La3 been a failure lo con vict, 8he liquorsellcr lias been Tcopt in a hot water of agitation and anx iety. Tho results are most salutary. Public sentiment in favor tf lha Jaw is increasing. Even jonrnals indif ferent to the principle advocate the enforcement cf the statute as law abiding citizens. Twenty-five ruin- i6ters met recently at an association in Kansas. Twenty-three of them reported from a partial to an entire success in the enforcement of pros hibilion in their respective towns. The distillery at Topeka stopped manufacturing in February, and its owners are going to remove it to a license State,- acknowledging that the business has hecotre disagreeable, dangerous and unprofitable. The president of the distillery company is reported to have already saids "Nearly one half of the liquor trade has fallen off; we meet with constant opposition, ere hampered and hound ed by temperance people, liable to be closed up by tho State authorities and fined ; none of the first-class in surance companies will have any thing to to do with onr property." . t John 11.
