The attempt of any corrupt or oowardly Leaders to botray tho Dumooratic party thug would be only I the deelaration that tho Democratie party was captured, and bd surrendcred, bag uncl bsggage, body and boots, to its most implacable enemy. Private bargains may have been niado, but Demócrata wiü nuver ratii'y thiüu. It', to supposa (lio impossiblo, tho Democrotic Convcntioii at Baltimore, in nc?xt July, wore to nominato no ticket, and if no othnr rally oi Democrats to ñamo a ticket were to bo made, and wo wore to be left with the beggarly choico betwecn Graat and (ireoley - between the "man on horseback" and the willinjj instvumnt of all the free-lovers, " Internationals," communists, and othcr foes of raorality, society and religión - the general verdict would be, " Grant rather than Groeley !"

Our iustincts teach na to. oppose tbe lawlew person as if he were the tiary of tho anti-Ohrist. Tho vulgar, plundering follow "on horseback" is nieroly human, and a very poor "humnn" attliH''. But, at least, he is not a thoroaghly bcwitchod tooi of the devil, on plaus inade by bud womou and men, as Mr. Greuloy is. in ii Ono liinidrcd thousand persons in Cashinen: ure; eraployeS in tlie shawl manufacture.
