Is it hot about time that these diaap
p .i .ted ones moved along and left de
cent people in peace? If they have any
thing to say against Mr. Blaine, in hea
veu'd name let them come out with it
like men, nud if they have nothing, let
them keep their heads ehut. The coun
try is tired of this perpetual chin mu
sic. Mr. Blaine was nominated by the
duly elected representatives of the re
publican party. At the news of his
nomination the country broke out into
a shout of triumph that is ringing and
echoing yet, and iu its present humor
the country has neither time tolicten to
Curtis doleful music, nor inclination to
smile at the antics of his monkey, Nast.

of the democratic party in New York.
Prior to the democratic couvention the

democrats will cot be able to herd the
Irish vote this year inconsequence. It
will not stand the snubbing.
There are but three ways for a man
to revenge himself of the censure of the
