Mr. Greeley's iat if there had been nn open nnd ree election they would not havo one is a mere theory. It is very Icnr thnt the dominant opinion of tho feeding States was in favor of seces- ion.

Very a State is part of HIP country. If tho doctrine is true of six it is true of one.

How heartily _the clear-headed and consistent secession ists must despise their blustering If Mr. Greeley's views in his Pitts Imrg speech are there is no Union.

Upon the breaking out of the war Downey entered the sorylce as a Cap- tain in one of the Seneca and when the government decided upon em- ploying negro he became Colonel of a colored regiment. During the campaign in his regiment chanced to he encamped upon the estate of Col. Washing- near Nashville. The regiment seems not to have been under the best discipline ami its black desperadoes were disposed to eivc free rein to their brutal instincts They seized Col. Washington and threaten- ed him with instant and also set about destroying the elegant family man- sion. Col by great and at the imminent risk of his own succeeded in rescuing Colonel Washington from and in the mansion and other property from destruction. Colonel Washington felt profoundly grateful at the time for Colonel Downey's brave exer- tions in his and promised never to forget them There the matter nnd the wild scenes with which Downey was surrounded soon drove it out of his mind. He remained at the head of his regiment till the war wns and then returned to Tiffin and settled down into a quiet domes- tic life Not long ago ha leaving his family in straightened circumstances Mrs Downey was driven to her needle for sup- port. She and her children lived in their humble with little thought that a great change was soon to be wrought in their condition.

In 1808 Horace Sreeley wns a member of the Republican National Committee. He then offered a esolution that not less than should raised for election purpose.and assigned lie quota of contributions to be made to nch of eight States. And now he prates about the use of money at There are prevalent upon tlie subject the most nistakcn and exaggerated notions. Money s undoubtedly raised and used lor election by all parties. Meetings cannot torch-light processions got mnners raised or canvasses made without nnney. Halls must bo rjlatforms printing and advertising bills and the expenses of speakers paid. In some cases the speakers themselves require to be jaid liberally. This was the case vrlth Carl Schurz in and we presume is so now. 3ut the amounts raised are greatly exag- gerated by the party Press nnd common ipinion. though Mr Grceley n for the sum actually raised did not amount to During the iresent campaign money is also being raised jy both but we venture to assert hat neither parly has gent to any of the States in which elections have taken place anything like the amount of money which ms been reported. We also believe that Grceleyites sent twice as much money o North Carolina and Maine the present year as did the Republicans. The Greeley ites are so hard up for money that they arc promising offices as an induce- ment to people to subscribe. This is very much like the bonds of the Southern Con payable thirty days after the rec- ognition of its independence Y.
