Our County Ticket.
Tho ticket nominated by the Demo
cratic County Convention on tho 27th
ult., is ono that will command the ro
epect of every elector in tho county
who has the best interests of the
county at heart, and who desires to
poo the Bcvoral County Offices filled
by faithful and capable public servants.
There is not a man on the ticket who
is not in every way qualified for the
position for which ho is nominated,
and whose public and private charac
ter is not above suspicion. Our op
ponents concodo that it is as strong a
ticket as we could make.
Maj. E. W. Lyon, candidato for
sheriff, entered tho army in 18G1 as a
captain in tho 8th Michigan Infantry.
He served with credit and distinction
with his regiment until after the bat
tle of Frodoricksburg, in 1S03, when
he was obliged to resign on account of
his failing hoalth. Ho left the service
w ith the rank of Major, having been
promotod for gallant conduct on tho
fiulJ of battle. Ho is at present ono
of tho firm of E. V. Lyon & Co., and
has chargo of their extonsivo job
printing establibhtnont. He possesses
energy and decision of character, rare
business capacity and an address
which is frank and pleasing traits of
character and disposition which qual
ify him to fill with credit to himself
and honor to the people, the first office
in tho gift of the County.
For Treasuror, tho Convention re
nominated by acclamation, Thomas
"W. J ackson. Such a nomination must
bo exceedingly gratifying to Mr. Jack
son, as it evinces tho entiro sattsrac
tion of the people with the manner in
which he has discharged tho impor
tant duties of his office during the
past two years. There is no doubt but
that ho will bo ro-eloctod by a largely
incrcasod majority, for the mass of the
pooplo aro never disposed to sacrifice
the interests of community for a mere
party triumph. They know that their
interests are safo in tho hands of Mr.
J ackson, and they will voto for him
rather than for a new and untried
Tho candidato for Clerk, n. B.
Ferris, was also nominated by accla
mation, a compliment which Mr. Fer
ris lias fully earned by the faithful
performance of the duties of the of
fice as deputy clerk for tho past ten
years. That ho should have held the
office of deputy that length of timo,
is proof of his qualifications for the
offico and of the satisfactory manner
in which he has performed its duties.
Ho is the first choice of the bar of the
county. Tho only objection we have
ever heard made to him is the one
suggested by the Enterprise, that all
his family are radical Republicans.
We are frank to admit that, while wo
havo had a very poor and mean opin
ion of radical Republicanism, wo nev
er gave it credit for boiog so vile as to
taiut the family blood. The Enterprise
is authority on this subject, and Mr.
Ferris will undoubtedly lose the votes
of all Republicans who have taken as
many degrees in the party as the edi
tor of that concern.
Capt. Itolla Glover, candidate for
Register, is fortunatoly freo from the
family sin of Mr. Ferris. lie is a war
Democrat He entered the ervico in
18G2, as a private in the 7th Michigan
Cavalry, and sorved with the regiment
until 18CG, when howaa mustered out
with tho regiment, having in the
rneantimo been promotod to the rank
of captain for gallant conduct. - His
record is tho record of Custar's Mich
igan Brigade, and there are a large
number of soldiers in the county who
know that record by heart Having
fought four years to compel rebels to
obey and rospoct tho Constitution,
Capt. Glover thinks it altogether pro
per and not at all humiliating for
loyal men to pay some little respect to
that same Constitution. Tho Captain
is a good penman and has prompt
business habits. The Convention could
not have selected . a better man for
Dan. I Foots who is nominated
for Frosecutiug Attorney, was two
years ago a candidate for the Stato
Legislature and lost the election
through the town of Spaulding cast
ing hor Democratic vots for tho candi
date from this district. In that por
tion of the county whero he is best
known, he ran ahead of his ticket
He is a well read lawyer and an effi
cient speaker. His election will in
sure tho prompt and efficient perform
ance of the criminal business of the
John J. Wheoler, candidato for Cir
ruit Court Commissioner, is widely
and favorably known throughout tho
county as one of the leading members
of the bar. He has an extended law
practice, which he has gained by abil
ity and close application to business.
He has held the office for two years,
and his nomination is equivalent to
Lewis Locfller, nominee for County
Surueyor and Drs. Rouso and North
rup, nominees for Coroners, uro all
men of character and ability, and al
though they are not nominatod for the
most important offices, their namos
add strength to tho ticket.
Tho Convention has faithfully per
formed its duty by nominating our
best men, and if we do our duty and
perform a little earnest work for the
ticket, we shall roll up a majority that
will surprise ourselves and astonish
our opponents. The Republicans have
nominated an expediency ticket. They
demanded only one qualification in a
candidate, availability. The result
was that thoy did not get anything
more than they asked, and precious
little of that. We shall havo occasion
their ticket hereafter.
Y Now is the time for work for down
right ha:d blows in behalf of country.
Tho Issue dividing parties is of no or
dinary character. It isn't a question
of mero political economy, or a mat
tor of only party expediency ; it is
something niore, it affects principles,
it touches the Government itself, it in
volves the perpetuity of the Union of
these States. The people should not
bo deceived in this matter. It is of
vital importance that they understand
it and act intelligently in reference to
it. Let us look to tho issue for a mo
ment. What is'it ? First and prin
cipal: it involves tho qvestion of res
toration. This is tho vital point and
here parties divide. On tho part of
the Radicals it is claimed that tho
States of the South, at Statet, sccodod,
that by such action on their part, they
voluntarily renounced their rights un
der the Constitution, that the manner
of their return to tho Union, can only
be determined by Congress, and that
it can rightfully impose such terms
and conditions upon them as it deems
advisable : and in tho exercise of this
right, can exclude them not only tor
the present but for all future time.
This is the Radical doctrine: What
is its effect ? Practically to ondorso
secession, the theory that a State can
renounce its allegiance to the Federal
Government, can withdraw from it
and thereby, in fact, effect a dissolu
tion of the Union. That this doctrine
is monstrous, that it is abhorent to
our theory of government cannot bo
denied. It is in open violation of the
principles on which the war was car
riod on and for the success of which
wo sacrificed men and treasuro with
out limit It is alike dangerous and
revolutionary. It disregards tho Con
stitution and runs counter to every ra
tional principle of American Republi
canism. It assumes that tho Statos
are out of the Union, that they can
bo indefinitely kept out, and this on
the ground not that the people of
the South will not bear true allegiance
to tho Government for this they aro
now solemnly sworn to do but that
they will not accept th political theo
ries of Radicalism.
Tho Conservative doctrine is in ac
cord with tho position assumed by
Congress in 18G1 : There is no right
of secession in a State. It cannot
withdraw from tho Union. Any at
tempt by force to sever its constitu
tional relations therefrom, is treason
on tho part of the individuals making
it, and whilo they, by their power,
may succeed in effocting a temporary
suspension of such relations, it is only
a part of their treason, and when that
is crushed, the State of right, occupies
its normal position in the Union and
as a Stato is entitled to all its rights
and privileges under the Constitution
upon an equal footing with every
other State. The individuals involved
in the crime are subject to punish
ment in the way pointed out by law
but the State cannot be guilty of
treason, and if it could, there is no
provision for its punishment under our
system of government Treason is
clearly defined by the fundamental
law of the land. Individuals may be
guilty of it, and can bo punished
States never !
This is the doctrine of the Conserv
ative party. Its application to the re
cent attempt on the part of individu
als at the South to subvert the Fede
ral authority within State limits and
to take the States themselves out of
the Union, is easy. Tho action of such
individuals was treasonable, and they
themsolves traitors. While they had
power and could marshal great armies,
they held control of certain States and
rendered it impossiblo to continue the
constitutional relations of Federal
Government with them. It was the
intent of their treason to break off
thoso relations to overthrow the Fed
eral authority. The Government
fought them to defeat that intent to
preserve the Federal authority in all
tho States; and it solemnly declared
when that purpose was effected tho
war ought and should coaio. The
Government conquered, the traitorous
intent was defeatod and the Federal
authority restored in every Stato and
Territory belonging to the Govorn
ment What then, according to all
sound principles ought to follow? As
su redly, tho resumption of these prac
tical relations which the Constitution
establishes between tho General and
State governments. This is a logical
and. necessary rosult. If it was the
success of treason that interrupted
and broke them off, its dofoat should
bring thoir resumption. We say tho
Government conquered. It did at the
South. Opposition to its authority
ceased there, and the entire. Southern
people yielded to its laws with an una
nimity unparalleled in tho world's
history, after such a long and bitter
civil struggle. The intent of thoir
treason was defeatod forover, and they
swore a solemn oath to bear true al
legiance to tho Government to pro
tect and defend the Union. They aro
to-day in that attitude of allegiance.
Why then does not tho resumption of
those practical relations between them
and the General Government follow ?
Simply because Radicalism 6tands in
the way. It has adoptod tho intent
of trtason and says that those rela
tions shall not again exist until its
own views are mot until the Consti
tution of our Fathers is changed and
tho Government reorganized to suit
its own wild theories. Southern trea
son sought to seperate tho States from
the General Government, and it was
crushed out. Radicalism seeks to con
tinue that condition of things which
was brought into existence by tho
power of treason. Is not this latter
equally dangerous, equally traitorous
with the formor seeking ? In all hu
man reason it must bo so.
This, then, is the position of tho
two great parties of the country tho
ono for the immediate restoration of
all the States to their normal position
in the Union for the Constitution
and for National harmony the other
for the continuance of thoso disrupted
relations betweon the Genoral and
State governments which treason pro
duced. Can thinking men can good
citizens hesitate as to where they
ought to stand in referenco to such an
issue ? No! As in 'Gl, their patriot
ism will lift them above all moan par
tizan considerations, and make them
act only for Country. Parties aro no
thing, men are nothing, only as they
represent principles and battle for a
just cause. In this contest, true pa
triots will strike as heretofore, for the
Union. But they must now be at the
work. There is no time for delay.
They must organize in every district,
the country over. Active and zealous
men must meot togother and learn
their strength, and bring it to bear
upon the timid and hesitating. To old
and incorrigible enemies, give hard
blows ; to rational and thinking men
of opposite viows, your best argu
ments, and to all an example of earn
est and devoted love of country. Suc
cess will follow.

La Crotst Democrat.
A few city lots can be had
near the projected depot, on the farm
of our pure and corruptible repre
sentative (every one is presumed to be
innocent until proved to be guilty, and
that littlo matter between him and
Mr. Birney has not been investigated
yet.) What a blessing is a disinter
ested law maker !
Our opponents claim that there
are fno legal Stato governments
in any of the Southern States except
Tennessee. How can any of those
States then adopt an amendment to
the Constitution of the United States?
They cannot, and thus their exclusion
upon the theory of tho Republican
party, becomes perpetual.
When the philanthropic Member of
Congress from this District came to
vote on the appropriation bill which
included the Soldiers' Bounty provi
sions as well as an increase of pay for
the honorable member, at the last ses
sion of Congress, he uttered some
very patriotic sentiments touching the
poor soldiers, and expressed, his desire
to do him justice, and his horror at the
direful necessity he was under of vot
ing, either to defeat the bounty provi
sions or to put money into his own
pocket He was in a distressing di
lemma. His tears flowed copiously.
Ho wept as one with a breaking heart
It was so cruel for such a pure and
unselfish law maker to bo placod in
such circumstances. What could he
do ? At this tearful moment, Mr
Ferry, member of the 4th District,
came to his relief and remarked to him
that he had been in the same dilem
ma, but had found his way out, by de
termining to donate tho sum appro
priated as increase of pay to the de
serving soldiers of his district Happy
idea I John F. was relieved at once.
He too would donate he would give
the soldiors of his District, the hated
appropriation. So he ended his lach
rymose performance, and with a
choerful countenance voted yea. The
bounty bill bocame a law, whereby
tho fortunato soidior who had carried
his musket two years or moro to fight
the rebellion, received tho magnificent
sum of 150. John F. rejoiced.
It was a result of hit labor. The in
crease of pay also bocamo a law
thanks to the same capacious intellect
A petty $2,000 likowise came to the
open pocket of tho astute John F.
He again rejoiced. He could now re
lieve the poor soldiers of his District,
generous representative. Ho tcoula
do it hardly. He has not extenticely.
Wouldn't it become the honorabe
member to make some arrangements
to distribute this unfortunate $2,000.
Wo know some vory worthy soldiers
who would be vory happy to receive
their sharo of it whilo awaiting the
small pittance due to them under the
bounty provisions. What says the
innocent J. F.? Docs ho confess that
his ostentatious and solemn declara
tion in Congress, to donate this in
creased pay, was a mere subterfuge,
a promise which sounded well to tho
ear, but intended to end only in sound?
Oh ! magnanimous Driggs. Tho sol
diers should build unto thee a monu
ment and inscribo thereon, " Glorious
in promises, he was infinitely false in
fulfilling them, lltquittcat in Hades.'

The Deacon's Cow. A contributor
to Harper's Monthly tells a story of
a certain ueacon wno was once me
best of men, but by nature very iras
cible, A cow was so exceedingly dis
orderly, as the deacon was attemptirg
to milk her one morning, that the old
Adam got tho bettor of him. and ho
ventod his excited foolings in a volley
of execrations very undeaconish in
their character. At this moment tho
good deacon's pastor appeared unex-

can it be ? Are you swearing ?"
"VV ell, parson, replied the deacon,
