The pretence of three journals that the Democracy hare | 1 become unpopular, is not sustained by the 1 facto, say* the World. ' “ The causes assigned for this alleged loss of popularity are the courao of the party dnr- i in* the war and ito opposition to the recon struction measures. But when these causes were atilt fresh and recent, when they were moat operative, Chief-Justice Chase, (he ablest of the old Republican leaders, was will ing, nay anxious, to accept a regular Demo cratic nomination for President. The glow ing coals of those then burning but now de funct controveniea had not gathered cinders to cover them : and yet a Republican states man who stood high in public confidence was ready to identify himself with the Democratic organisation and bear its banner to victory. There could not be a more eloquent refuta tion of the pretence that the Democratic party sinned away ita day of grace by its course dur um and immediately after the war. When the time came round for the next Presidential election, there was not merely one but sever al old and trusted Republican statesmen who were witling to commit their political fortunes and their reputation to an association with this odious, moribund Democratic party. Mr. Greeley did accept, and half a dozen other distinguished Republicans would hare ac cepted the Democratic nomination for Pres ident Among the candidates for that honor were ('has. Francis Adams, David Davis, Lyman Trumbull and Grata Brown. There were as many more who would have compet ed in the list of candidates if they had received any encouragement In the face of these facts it is mere self-refuting folly to assert that ihe coarse of the Democratic party dur ing the war has made it odious. That' argu ment comes too late. Since Chief-Juabce Chase wanted and since Mr. Greeley accepted a Democratic nomination for the Presidency, the party has laid no new stumbling-blocks in the waa of Republican recruits. Both in 1808 and in 1872 the Democratic party was defeated by bad nominations and by the corrupt use of Federel patronage, not nt all by its course during the war, which is the only reason given by the tdvocutes of dissolution why it cannot hope to succeed in 1876. In any rational estimate of political strength or public opinion, we must consider the opin ion of the enlightened, educated classes. The negro votes must be counted, bet it is absurd to weigh them. It is an incontestable fact that a majority of the while citixeus of the United States are Democrats. The returns of the last Presidential election prove it. The negro vote of the country is considerably lar ger than Grant's popular majority; and if the disgusted Democrats who sullenly refused to support Mr. Greeley had come to the polls, ihe result of the white vote would have been still more striking and instructive. To say that a political party which haa the confidence of a majority of the white voters is irredeem bly unpopular and has (alien so low that it cun never expect U> riee, is a silly extrava gance which Democrats laugh to scorn." The vitality of the Democratic party will prove itself whenever ito leaders shall be true to ito ancient principles. AU that is required to develop ita vigor is a reor ganisation upon ito cherished creed, under faithful and tried leaders. Had the con test of 1872 been conducted on that basis, a far different result would have followed. But the party, with a blind fatuity which is, even yet, a profound and impenetrable enigma, went after false gods, instead of clinging to the true faith and to the tried and trusted representatives of that faith. The consequence was, disgust and mortifi cation, which kept over half a million of Democratic and anti-radical voters from the polls, and ignominious defeat. The World was steeped to the eyes in this hunt after old Radical debauchees as Democratic candidates, any one of whom would have been beaten just as bad as Greeley. Let this lesson suffice, for all time; and let it teach all those who would assume leader ship in the Democratic party, that there is but one way to success, and that is —by mlm/ing Ike old I kingt nml tealking la the old faith*. Diabolism.—ln the trial of Dr, West for the murder of Cooeh Turner, at Dover, Del., the prosecution took the ground that Dr. West had an insurance on his life for $25,000, and that Turner, who was a block mao, was killed and partially skinned, to personate West's own body, so that his wife might get the insurance money, while he secreted himself. A more diabolical plot could not well be conceived, outside of pandemonium. If true, it evinces the deepest moral turpitude on the part of Dr. West. If false, it shows a low moral status on the port of an Insurance Company that mid conceive such a plot and attempt to establish it by proof. The defence set up the pleas of insanity and of self-defence, the latter on the statement of the prisoner. Upon this plea a verdict of -‘not guilty" was rendered on Wednesday. West will next be tried for setting fire to his office, but as his own confession determined the trial for murder, so probably, will the state ment that the fire was accidental, deride his trial fiw arson. At Mobile and Bt. Louis, recently, when tint Confederate graves were decorated with flowers, the graves of the Union sol diers were adorned in like manner. This was in marked contrast to the proceedings of the Grand Army of the Republic, at Washington on decoration day, which in stead of cherishing a return of kiodliei reefing, fanned afresh the embers of expir ing hate, hy prohibiting any demonstration* of respect towards the Confederate dead. Tiiis lilieral conree at Mobile and 8i Louis is also an evidence that the South make* no war upon the dead, obliterating all pas sim and animositios at (be portals of the Maj. Klias Griswold, an ex-confederate officer, who mm a democratic member of the last Housn of Delegatee from the city of Baltimore, and in the last congressional contest ran as an independent candidate for Congress against Mr Thomas HwiAij, bas been appointed to a good position in the Dost Office Department, by President Grant.

' Foreign advice*, of a political character, j as received by the American preen, are most unreliable and unsatisfactory The cateren foe the press, or their oorrespon dents, seam to have no intelligent appro- / elation of the political situation, and con- I stonily mislead the public on tills side of t the Atlantic. lu France and Spain, es- a peeially, events sppesr to be involved in [ utter uncertainty. The bulletins of to-day * are contradicted to-morrow, and theories . ’ # 1 and opinions founded upon cibie dispatches an found to be as often erroneous as other- wise. One day, we are told that republi- i oanism is drawing ito las' expiring breath. ‘ The next, it is announced that it pervades [ the great mass of the people, and is so ‘ firmly established that the monarchist sen- ' timent can make no headway against it. Kvento are continually transpiring that j appear to be unlooked for by the people. , and were not anticipated by the press. It J is difficult, therefore, for the American ] public to form any very accurate opinion upon the state of European politics, since , it has to depend mainly upon mere idle | speculations which seem to be oftener erro neous than true. This lack of information on the part of foreign journalists and correspondents, probably arises from a condition of things - totally different from that to which we are accustomed in this country. We cannot claim that the American press is more in telligent, but we believe it to be more en terprising than that of Europe. Here it is übiquitous, ito representatives are in every place. European politicians, of necessity, are more reticent; American politicians are more accessible and more communicative. Hence the publicist, here, is thoroughly pasted upon all matters of public concern, snd the public mind more enlightened on political subjects. Worthy ok Hast or Dorx.—Fome my't Democrat, of the 7th instant, has a caricature of Ben Butler, in the shape of a large feline, attempting to clamber over a picket fence of spoons, and forks set on end. with their linos upward. The reechy grimalkin has clambered to the top of the fence and is casting a lunging look towards 1 the Executive Chair, of the Slate of Mas ! saohusetto but is unable to reach it on | account of being pierced by the tines , of the forks, with this inscription below : [ “The Spoon Business is an insurmounto ! ble barrier." * * > Maryland Editors. —The Hagrn | town Doily appears to entertain a very low > estimate of ito editorial brethren. Hear ! it: t Maryland editors generally only render to ' dead-head it over the country and do nothing to advance their own interests The cooae ,- qnence is, they belong to railroad men and . dare not speak their true sentiments. Let 1 them once determine to pay for what they get t and call for what they want and they will command the respect of every one as well as their dimes. As it is, they are generally re r garded as aelass of “bummers." When shall . we see them above railroad influence? $137 Per Day. —Tax-payers, we care ’ not what yon are, Democrats or Republi cans, look at this fact and ponder it well. P A Republican Congress has increased j President Grant's salary to such an extent that he now gets $137 a day throughout the year, Sundays included. This is for salary alone and does not include the appropriations for the White House, which last year were as follows; $35,000 for | new furniture; $5,000 for gas; $3,000 c for fuel, and $6,000 for a hot house B Gxttyshi'Ro Collide. —We have re ceived an invitation to be present at the 1 re-union dinner of the Alumni and friends of this college on the 26th instant.

Mr. Bach man will make an effort to raise them, and we hope he will ? and exhibit them at the next Agricultural Fair. * Ply is thx Wheat.—ln some portions of this county the fly has cut the wheat to such an extent that it will not pay to harvest it. Fortunately the damage is not general. Wheal that gave promise a week or two ago of a fine yield, aa soon as the heads began to shoot, fell over and withered. In other portions the crops will be good. The Cut Worm.—This insect has been uu usually destructive this season. In some parts of this county, whole fields of corn have been destroyed, and the formers have had to plow op their fields and plant them a second time. Others have had a great deal of replanting to do. Some neighborhoods, however, have es caped the ravages of this insect entirely. Bark Burned.—The fine Switzer barn of Mr. C. Erb, near Berryville, in Clarke County, Va., was struck by lightning, on the27th ah., and entirely destroyed, together with a quan tity of farming implements stored in it at the time. The loss is estimated at $3,000 —partly covered by insurance. Mr. Erb formerly resided in this county, where he now has many relatives.

The day being beautiful, many participated ; 5 about 10} a. m. the woods was filled with hap -9 py children, ready to spend the day in all the amusements usual at play parties, “joggle 5 along,” “slap tag,” etc. At 1 o’clock, all feeling the need ot refreshments, a bountiful ’ dinner was spread, which all did justice to. t Then clearing dinner away they resumed their r play, which continued until IP. M., when all reeling the day had been one of enjoyment they retraced their footsteps homeward weary looking, but happy hearted. e The Western Maryland Kaluioad.—Bal timore, not content with the Connellsville 8 road, which taps the trade of Philadelphia at 5 Pittsburg, is ambitious to rob us of the great est item of our foreign commerce—the export p of petroleum. In 1872 the total value of ex g ports from this city was $20,484,80)1. of which , $12,027,145 was of petroleum. The total 1 number of vessels, in 1872. carrying full car goes, were: From New York 681, carrying 1,796,864 barrels; from Philadelphia 381, car rying 1,335,355 barrels; from Baltimore 12, - carrying 23,587. Realizing the value of this i trade, Baltimore purposes to extend the Western Maryland Railroad to the oil regions e of this State. It only remains now for Tt to carry out this purpose, but we fear there will e he some difficulty in so doing.— Pkila. Prts*. e Western Md.

The Aeunotos Estate.—Tlic Wash ington Republican corrects a Louisville contemporary who, it says, falls into an error when it says that the ‘property ( Arlington} was forfeited to the govern ment by the act of General Lee,” in going ; into the Confederate service. It is true I that in a technical and legal sense Arling ’ ton did not so become the property of the ! United Stole* government, as under onr ; constitution and laws no real estate can be i confiscated in perpetuity or !u fee but i only daring the lifetime of the owner, and then upon trial and proper decree of a ! court. The government, however, early I took possession of the Arlington property, and then availed of the discreditable dodge of netting it up and selling it for unpaid federal (axes; thus to get a tux title on which to hold it in perjietuity. All sub sequent offers to redeem it in behalf nf its real owner. Mrs. Lee. have been disrc garded, and thus this dear liome of her childhood is not only withheld from a now decrepit old lady, but all compensation is so far refused her by a government which claims the loyalty of herself and children. All honest eitiaens of the republic are ashamed by the spectacle.— Baltimore Shk. 41ovemor Dlx having vetoed the Local Option law passed by the New York Leg. islaturc for the reason cider and beer were included in the list of proscribed bever ages, the friends of temperance immedi ately set to work to frame auotber bill which should Ik- free from the objections urged by his Excellency. After much deliberation they presented qhat is known as the “ Ohio IMiuagc Bill,” and it was promptly passed. This bill gives to every wife, child, parent, guardian, employer or other person who shall be injured in person or property by the intoxication of any one, whether habitual or otherwise, the right nf action against the party who furniahes the liquor, and the owner of the premises on which the liquor is sold la also liable, and may be sued Jointly with the tenant, or the action may be brought i against him without reference to the ten- I ant.

About 8 o'clock on Saturday morning last, the house of Mr. P. N.

The lower part of the house was built of logs; the upper part | was built of frame. It v,j) insured for $2600. The fire is supposed to have orig inated from the kitchen stove. The prospect for a full crop of peaches in Maryland and Delaware, is no longer entertained. In the last few weeks, on the lower part of the pensula, more than one-half of this fruit has fallen from the trees, and they continue to drop off. In many districts the crop will be almost a total failure; at the best not more than a third of s crop will be raised, notwithstand ing the flattering prospects exhibited by the orchards a few weeks previous.

We have nothing to say to the decision of the Court of Appeals iu the case of .Stokes. It is not for laymen to discuss questions of law with the bench which has 1 power to decide them, and no one but has 1 confidence complete in a criticism of an ! inferior court, uttered by such judges as ; Church, Crovcr, and Uapello. But we ‘. have this to say as matter of public policy and of justice : that the spectacle of Stokes ! still untried, in the eyes of the law, for an ! act committed a year and a half ago, is a mockery of justice and a scandal ujHn our jurisprudence. The fact of the killing of I Fisk by Stokes has all along been admitted, i The question was only whether that killing ■ was murder. And that question is us far I off now from a legal settlement us on the , ( day when Fisk was buried. It lias become I the custom to say that punishment should ! be merely exemplary ami not vindictive, i If that is true it seems to us that the exe cution of Stokes after what has already I happened in his case would be of scarcely ! any value to society as an example. The | men who most need such an example are | the men upon whom (he example of punish j ment two yean* after the fact would have jno deterring effect . The few of them who ?\ are capable of connecting a retribution so long delayed with the crime which brought it on would cherish hopes that they would clear all the difficulties in their course to freedom which Stokes so nearly cleared, j* Stokes lias hud two trials already. The first was vitiated by a failure to reach the verdict. The verdict in the second has been nulified. And Stokes stands now ♦ where he stood on the day he killed Fisk —in the position of an untried culprit. We say again there is a radical wrong in , a system which takes eighteen months. three juries, and u doien courts, to find out ! whether a nun in killing another has com mitted murder or not. — X.
