promises t# be the most exciting in the history of that state. How the result will termínate remains to be seen. Both parties are coufldent of winning, and a vast ainount of work is being done on both sidos. Prom now until the day of election lively times rnay be expected. What the negro may expect from the republican party is ïllustrated by the recent election in Kentucky. .T. W. Asbury, a colored minister, was hitched on the tail end of the republican ticket for the purpose of oatohing votes, but the result shows that the white republicans scratched him on account of his color. While the white republican candidate for governor received 88,181 votes, Asbury, the colored candidate for register of the lan.i office, received but 71.515. Asbury received the same treatment when he was the rei)iiblican nominee for congress against Joe Blackburn, many white republicans openly deolaring they would " not vote for a d nigger." That thoroughly reliable and ably edited paper, the Weekly Press, published by Willard Stearns, at Adrián, pays The Demoorat the following compliment: The Ann Arbor Dehocrt has entered upon its sixth vear, and evidently with growing prospecta. It has overeóme all objections, and is now the recognized party paper of the county, hoists the name of Hancock for president in 1884, and moves on with giowing vigor. The Democrat has a good field to work in, advocates the principies of democracy with ability, merits and receives thé confidence oj! the partv in the county, and we are glad to see that the advertismg columns show the patronage of merchante and business men is freely liestowed. The leg;il advertisements show it to be decidedly the favorite with the officials of the county. Never in the history of this country was there a cali on the democracy for a more earnest standing together, slioulder to shoulder, or for more assiduons efforts m behalf of popular government. The war was a passable excuse for the villainy that grew up in the. garb of patriotism and waited upon trae jmtriotic efforts to prey apon friend and foe. ïbe mighty issues which followed war as the waves were slowly subsiding, and the great passions which could not subside in a moment, were au excuse for much that followed. That mighty interested rings WDuld organize themselves, and in the name of party principies, and of patriotism, and of still existmg dang-rrs or pretended dangers, prey upon the people and elévate the interest of gres) associations and corporations above the intereats of the people, securing for privilege the place honest, unaided industry ought to occupy, was ine vital le. But the war and its passionn and the passions which outlasted war are all gone; the country has at last calmed down bo that it must suffer calmly and knowingly what ever it suffers in the future. If, in this calm time, the inñuences which suoceeded ii_ 1880 in buying an extensión of time and Ulegitimate privileges shall succeed again, it will be that Bubmissive bowing the neck to the yoke which will argue years of slavery and great hardships and dangers to be endured hereafter when the remedy can be no longer delayed.!
