You, Demo crats, for your unparallelled stupidity, and without any hope of relief, must endure the ridicule and the contempt of an insulted and incensed public, while your pet candidate will have to submit to the indignation and defeat the people will so cheerfully confer. This "Squatter Elector"—for we will con tinue to call him such—is a man. who, in many respects, is not a little remarkable— one whose equal, we believe, remains unborn. in an article like this, we cannot be expect od to relate every mean act of his life, for newspapers arc not issued,'weekly, by the volume. Tt would matter little, then, for us to state how, by fraud., he obtained a Railroad pass for a year or mare. It* would matter little for us to state how he passed worthless mon et/t and then, after the discovery of the fraud, neglected or refused to redeem. Th°se are only individual acts, and others can be found who have done like things. We, therefore, enter upon our task in a different way. A man's life davoted to certain illegal and immoral practices, renders him notorious, but, usually, only in a certain way. Our "Squatter Elector" is notorious in every way. In private life ho is selfish, miserly and ty ranv'al. His tastes are low, and his labits assimilate accordingly. To his family, his unclejinliness is a source of annoyance, anrl his worthiessness a source of expense. His personal appcarance is disgi sting, and, in decent society, his very presence is abom inable.

The Ilerald zealously advocates the project, and a public meeting held last week unanimously voted in favor of it, and adop ted articles of Incorporation. The distance to Oskoloosa from Eddyville, is ten miles.— The estimated cost of grading and tieing is $80,000 to $40,000. Although Osknloosa is off the proposed route of the Keokuk road, the opinion is expressed that if a road is built now, it will be adopted by that company as a part of their route.

We have just returned from a ride to Con cord, and a visit to the spot where the first British blood was shed by our fathers on the memorable 19th of April, 177"), the day which inaugurated the American Revolu tion, though the Declaration of Indepjndence was not till nearly a year and a quar ter later. The spot is marked very fitly by a monument of solid granite chiselled with a simple record of the event. About six miles south eastward of this, at I-exington, on the road to Boston, whence eight hundred British soldiers marched in the mirning on their foray into the country to destroy the military stores which the Yankees had gathered at Concord, stands another granite monument, Tc lay. short distance from this place, is a guide board, pointing westward to "Lincoln." As you par,s from the Concord monument to wards that at Lexington, before you have gone quite 9 mile, you reach a beautiful resi dence in a grove, made classic by being the home of Ralph Waldo Emerson. Right here your road divides, and that which seems most direct leads to "Lincoln." In short all the way from Lexington to Concord, or Con cord to Lexington, you arc reminded of Lin coln, and are a portion of your time in the town of "Lincoln." What silent prophetic inspiration led our fathers to call this revo lutionary territory, "Lincoln," we will leave each one to imagine for himself, but we be lieve the day is not far distant in the future, when the name of "Lincoln" shall do much towards preserving that liberty which waked the echoes of a death-dealing musketry along the hills and valleys of old Lincoln, in Mass., more than eighty five years ago. Last week, we were gratified by seeing the Little Giant of the west, Hon. S. A. Douglas. He reached Boston on the evening of the 17th. The next morning we happened to fall in with the bands of music and mili tary escort which conducted His Excellency, Gov. Banks, his council and aids, from Bos ton to Cambridge, to attend the exercises of the commencement at Harvard College.— In this crowd was the little Giant, as large as life, and no doubt twice as natural. He certainly is in good condition, if evidence of being well fed and clothed proves it, as they say it does in case of negroes. A more jolly, self complacent, fat looking man, we have not had in our field of yision for along time, east or west. Thc fires of a restless ambi tion have certainly yet much to feed upon, before he will have'a lean and hungry look like Cassius, or like those politicians out of office. In fact, we rather think he enjoys being in a position where his democratic rivals "go down" urder his influence, like Sayers under thc blows of lleenan. Exter nally he seems exactly the man to manage a right merry family quarrel. A democratic fthowman in this region would never be asked vich is Daniel and vich are the lions. There is not the slightest difficulty in discovering the lions, the only question is, Where is Daniel On the platform at Cambridge, Mr. Doug las occupied a prominent position near the right hand of Gov. Banks, where for the day he was the object sought by all eyes.
