Democratic party, 'and such cthers,f
any there be, "who were engaged, or
in any way participated in the late in
surrection or rebellion," granting to all
such, "full pardon and amnesty for
the offense of treason against the Uni
ted States, or of adhearing to their en
emies during the late civil war," We
suppose that during the remainder of
his inglorious administration, he will
devise the "waya and means" by
which he may further proclaim a par
don to thtso persons who "participa
ted" and.thcso who "adhered", for
causing the nation to go to such vast
expense to prevent the "participa
tion," and to circumvent the "adhere
ing." The great mass of voters can't
overlook this great crime in those two
parties, and while they work and la
bor to pay the enormous taxes thus
made necessary by the wrong doing of
these two parties, who, otherwise
claim to be Democrats, they are con
tinually reminded that, had they not
"participated" and "adhered,", this
enormrrus public 'debt would never
have been contracted, nor these enor
mous taxes levied. Perhaps a procla
mation may wipe all this out of the
minas or tne present, or succeeding
generation of voters, so that future
historians may not record what great
political party it was that got up, , or
carried cm, and gave aid and comfort
to "the late insurrectionists," and
thus made necessary the creation of so
great a public debt for their suppress
ion. Yes, Andy, another proclama
tion is necessary. Democrats groan
terribly under the odium fastened up
on them by this debt, and a pardon is
imperitively demanded. So let it

Ms. Editor: -1 seldom cross the
threshold of any place of worship, but
the remembrance of many by-gone
Christmases hovered over my memory
last Friday evening, and I could not,
without feeling the writhings of a
wronged conscience, absent myself
from the crowds of worshipers who
were hurrying to the different church

was a stranger, and sooil found myself
in front of a neat brick edifice. The
sound of children's voices, mingled
with tho notes of an organ, welcomed
me as I entered. w
"Carol, Christmas Carol !" '
It might have been fancy that told

the song in the days of my-boyhood,
and my heart beat faster at the sweet
recollection of the time when I too
had sang before a Christmas Tree.
The distribution or tne guts came
next. ' Each child had something
hanging from the green limbs for him
or her no disappointed faces. Each
came forward when named, and re
ceived tho present with thet glow of
delight which only passes over the
face of a child.. The tree was soon
stripped of its varied fruits, leaving
nothing but the brilliant tapers. For
a moment I - forgot that I was but a
stranger nothing for me! As the
