Should we 6iicceed in giving a large vote for tho liberty ticket, it .will teil eOectualIy on the in'.erests of our cau.e, as well as on the immediaie and future condition of both the poütical parües. Therc issuch a ihing as the balance of power in a natío or Siuío. It is nut a mere phrase -nor a figment - oor an abstraction - but an actual reality, and one ihat is novv with. in our reach.
