The contest for which tbe union is desired is not one for the advancement of this man or that; is no', one in which the pride of name should have weight. It is a struggle lor the supre- macy of correct principles in the gov- ernment, by the operation of which the country may be brought back to its former mooring3, and peace be- tween its warring sections restored and it seems to us that no man can stand aloof, or by his worse than useless action give the sham Democ- racy another, and perhaps a longer lease of power.
