Slavery before the Furnum from the Buffalo express. Party is fast Drifting in to an open position which has been imputed then since the rebellion broke out but which they have attempted to conceal by Stern denial. Riffle and again it has been charged against that party that its primary desire was More for the a Votion of the Stit ution of slavery than of the restoration of the Federal Power Over the entire Union. With an affected air of injured innocence they have resented the imputation insist ing that they were for crushing the rebel lion and if in the encounter slavery fell then let it go. They pretended to hold the preservation of the Union As primary regarding the institution of slavery As a secondary consideration but the policy of the party has beep changed and it is now no longer arrayed on the Side of the Union the Constitution and the enforcement of the Laws except As matter of secondary importance. It is no difficult task now to understand the True position of the democratic party. It has been feeling around for More than three years to find standing ground to the Union not occupied by the administration and us friends but without Success. The administration party has been so decidedly and unreservedly the Union party of the action since the War began that the democrats must either become joint occupants with it on Union premises or seek a new and distinct Field More congenial to. Their party tastes and objects. This was a difficult and dangerous task to perform. To be thoroughly and heart ily Union was to fall in line with the administration and lose their party identity. Here then was a dilemna. It would not to to yield the party title though All the and Marks of the estate had wasted away even if it Cost the life of the be pub ii the democratic party must be Prapa prose cation of the War Ita presses and in orators say that it a because the War if it safes the Union must inevitably destroy slavery and the logic of their. Position is that they prefer to see the Union All than to haves perish. A conductor dead corpulent and Good natured conductor on the Columbus and Cleveland Railroad and one the Best in the country was sold the other Day in a singular manner. His train the morning express was rolling towards Cleve land rate of forty Miles an hour when several men were noticed on the track ahead who upon the approach of the train ran up the. Embankment and commenced gesticulating in the most energetic Man Ner. The Engineer supposing that the Mejt intended to warn him of a broken roil or a rained Bridge whistled Down the brakes and stopped the engine but the. Train was running so fast that it could not be stopped until the men were passed. The Clever conductor in order to save time leaped from the train and ran Back to enquire what 5h Thunder was the mutter that they should be stimulate in that manner and Stop the the Devil take your responded one the men As be danced about and struck out at the did t Stop your train. We ran into a blasted Bumble and Are the conductor regained his train As Speed try is possible the whistle was sounded and the train dashed away to make up time leaving the men on the track 4elill fighting the enraged a stated receive from internal Revenue this year the sum of three Hundred millions of dollars. Can Meb who raid this believe that a country with such Ricson acct can be stir Browb by a miserable rebellion we recently formed the acquaint of a Barber who dressed the Faess of Yawei served. Persona and party ambitions were regarded of Paramount importance to National integrity and Unity and an honorable and permanent peace. If the administration should be honoured with an other term t the democratic party must inevitably die out of its own weakness and it became the policy after years of painful study and training of the nerves of the party to the work of de Clare against the War and proclaim their unrelenting hostility to its prosecution except upon such terms and for such ends As they might dictate. This brings the democratic party to precisely the political position As that occupied by the tories of the revolution an Rhee federalists in the Daya of the War of 1812. They openly and boldly declare themselves opposed to the War not because of its injustice but for tie reason that its prosecution endangers the institution of slavery. This is the Anchor of that party. Slavery first and the Tynion the in of the government the lives of the men lost in its defence the treasure spent in maintaining Federal authority and the sacrifices of heart and purse made for the old Flag and the cause of the Constitution Are to be regarded As Mere chaff. This is modern is the position of the leaders and followers of party in 1863. It must have Cost much in the Way of love of country to bring Amer ican citizens into a position where they de Clare open hostility to a War which is waged to save the Union because it May end the Days of shivery. The Unity of states is blessings secured under a preserved Republic Are of no a free institutions established by the Best blood of our fathers Are Mere Bau Pride of country Home and name As citizens of the United states Are As dross where placed in the scale against an institution which has challenged the abhor rence of a christianize humanity and the curs of the is the position of the democratic party to Day under its own admissions and declarations. B boldly opposes the War. Why because it does not seek to restore the Union and the integrity of the government no. Be cause h is not waged to crush the rebellion no. Because its Success will not secure the Potter of the Federal the states no. Because the government in not True to the work is has in no. Then Why does the Bern never was a party reduced to to poor no estate. In patriotism love of Freedom Mere Fot the Union Constitution and Good government totally All Tebei faculties All their Hopes All s0eir expect1 their desires Cleat Eric Roo of and hugging to an institution that a Hel in Abhorrence by civilization the democratic party exercises a in limit of impudence by asking Christian freemen to join in their heartless and fruitless political Enterprise. That Man who bold takes position with a party that would Exchange the Union and its multitudinous blessings for the curse of slavery gives quit claim to the inheritance of Freedom and barters away Bis As on american citizen for the i moralities Anc crimes of an institution that finds no Fanpi in the eyes of a Christian cent where they Are winded by the avarice and wickedness. Slavery first and the Union is the motto and Battle cry of the the Union men of the land stand shoulder to shoulder under the old Flag upon whose folds Are in to the Dom forever and death to slavery. This is the Issue. Either the Republic or slavery must m in this contest. In slavery triumphs the Union idea. If the Union slavery perishes. This is the last and final struggle Between these antagonisms on this continent and peace will never come until one or the other triumphs. Slavery made the War and free Dom will end it. The temporary Success of the democracy if such a thing were Post sible might Check the flame but it cannot extinguish the fire that is lighted. Either Freedom or slavery is now at its funeral pyre. Erratic party declare it my another Dollar 097 another Rama for the Bird of Battle. The new Albany Indiana Ledger tells this we printed a few Days ago from an at Lanta paper an account of a mocking Bird which at the Battle of Resnen perched itself on the top of a tree and during the fight imitated the whistling of the Bulletts and other noises incident to a Battle. Another and a More touching incident of a similar character was yesterday related to us by Captain George Babbitt of general Gres Ham a staff and of which he himself was a witness. Daring the fierce Cann Nading at a Small Bird came and perched upon the shoulder of an artillery Man designated we believe As no. 1, whose duty it is to ram Down the charge after the ammunition is put in the the piece was a Napoleon which makes a very loud report the Bird As we have stated perched itself upon this Man s Shoul Der and could not be driven from its Posi Tion by the violent motions of the gunner. When the piece was discharged the poor Little thing would ran its beak and head up under the Man s hair at the Back of the neck and when died away would Reade its place upon Bis shoulder. Cape Babbitt took the Birdia his hand when he released his immediately resumed its place on the Aho Alder of the smoke be Grimes gunner. Tha scene was witnessed by a Large number of officers and men. It May be a subject Urf curious in Quiry what instinct led this Bird to thus place itself. Possibly frightened at 4he violent commotion caused by the Battle and not knowing How to escape or where to go some instinct led it to throw itself upon this gunner As a protector. Inv whatever the cause the incident was a most Beautiful and pleasing one to All who witnessed it. .0 in a a singular xn0id0ot f he Boston Greetie tells the following Biary Twenty years ago a gentleman of this City resolved to remove to the West task started for Bis destination.
