In every stage of these oppressions we have petitioned for redress in the most humble terms: our repeated petitions have been answered only by repeated injury.

The young man at once proceed- ed to fall in love, which he did with-an ardor characteristic of his nature. When Miss Gary vent back home to on James River, followed her like a courageous gidlant.i and aid open siege to rtie fair fortress. In ild times, however, something more waa isry than the consent of the young lady so he youth duly asked an interview with ttoc awful old lord of the manor, who listened to Win sttenrty throughout.

Edward Am bier. lie was not unw( rthy of this young la dy in rank or in character. He was descendec thro1 his mother from the great Huguenot hous of La lioche Jaquetinc, in Vendee, and inherited the honftt instincts of his race. At twelve h had been sent for his education to England: hi graduated at Cambridge, and then made the giand tour of Europe, returning to Virginia when he was twenty one. He waa married to Miss Cnry soon afterward, became Collector at York, and was PO much respected that when Lord Bottecourt came to Virginia as Governor, he brought a letter of introduction ta tho Col- lector. He died at thirty five, and the Revolu- tionary War breaking out soon afterward, his beautiful widow moved away from the scene of her giiif and took rtfuge in the far up in Hanover. bravo soldier stops not to estimate the chances of saving his own life and so the true philosopher counts not the dif ficullics in which his conduct may involve him self. We pity the man who cannot look be yond the narrow sphere of his individual prefer ences and prejudices, and act tho part of a citizen of tho world. The political parlizan that turns in upon his soul, and coolly weighs himself against the amount of bread and meat that will sustain his body, is no whit above the meanest worm that crnwl.s in the dust, nor the vulture that seeks the battle to gather .the last lesh that clings to the bones of the' dead. The chattel slave has a spirit free as air, but the poor, miserable serf of some partizan dema- gouge is the owner of neither his body nor his soul his thoughts and his actions arc accom- modated to those of another he (cats to move, or speafc, or breathe, without the pcnnisMon of one whom he accustoms himself lo regard as his lord and master. His moral state is that of dipcndence: he lovee to be commanded, and hke a faithful sailor of rtio olden lime, will not and overthrow. They have had no foundation whereupon to principles Vfcerewitli to unite in every efloft, and no vital power, nervingaerion to withstand the convulsions of political life. Thu) fhey into existence, ran well fur a timt, but whei the tiial camo they wete unable bear its investigation and scrutiny. But where, all this time, is the good old De- mocracy In the field unawred and unmo- lested by the surrounding demen'x. Democ- racy confides in the people the to regulate thc-ir own domestic affairs, that secures o every freeman the undisputed, untrammelled ght to ihe exercise of the elective an never be overthrown by the contentions of ectional factions. Such is its mighty fabric, s majestic that it stands monu- ment of that struggle in which our Torefctbers ought and shed their blood to secure the rights, be liberties which we now enjoy. These the democracy has and will maintain, notwith- tanding the opposing sectional parties. The bitterest partisan zeal must give way before Ua peaceful, mild dominion sectionalism- eannbt .urvive the shock, the convulsions which its scheme instigates, and which must return upon t with double force; but Democracy, true to the principles it advocates, is enabled to stand firm and unchanging. Advocating the rights of men, it receives strength by its own action. This, then, is the party for the young man to attach himself to, and the party for the oldtr men lo return to. The opposition can claim no merit of the people. The course they have pursued is enough to shatter their feeble constitution and bury them in deep oblivion. A few more years arid the republican party, like those of Us predeces- sors, will pass out of existence and be number- .nearly ed among the tilings that were. Its do- ings w ill l.e known only as a black spot on the pages of history. A present there is no know- ing where to find its adherents: they have no standing, fixed principles. Its triumphs have been but sectional, and in every instance dis- astrous to the health, the morals, and the pros- perity ef the Gorernment. The more power they havo keen enabled to obtain the greater influence they have swayed agninst the progress of governmental affairs, which proves to de- monstration that, had'tbey the fall power, little else would be done except to quarrel over the divison of the spoils. Under such circum- stances, the Union would be divided in pcacenwal bt-ing governed by some petty prince, some one assuming the authority of a ruler. Such, all must admit, would be the result if sectionalism was permitted to triumph. These are things worthy ol tho notice and the candid consideration of every voter. Tho public goed is a laudable the me for emulation, and such in the emulation of the Democracy, as shown by its acts and practical workings. We ask you to stop and before you act. There is a vital importance and great responsi- bi Hy connected with the act of voting, greater, perhaps, than many of us are aware of. yet it is fearfully true, chance nor time can efface its ef- fects. It is indelibly Used. Ourselves are not alone the recipients, but posterity must share in common wiih all the generations following. He who would transmit to posterity a worthy name, a sound and healthy government, should scrutinize closely the machinery of government and the actions of the diS'erent parties claim- ing adherence Progressive Age.
