Some time ago. tho motto, so often pa- raded by those who had no regard for its precepts, was paraded- at tlie head of the Herald columns, faud said as plainly as words could .that it would join itself to "no party which did not carry the flag and keep ttep to the music ot the Union." That the before the last word meant dis, ia evidenced ty lie fact that the Democratic party at that time was the only one which ever in- timated any disposition to dissolve the Union, and one of the faults of the present Breckiuridge faction is that its votaries at the South are among the most fanatical ol the disuuiomsts.
