The rebellion was Democratic. It
broke out in Democratic States. It was
confined to Democratic States: It was
latched by Southern Democrats. It
was fostered by Northern Democrats.
Democrats officered the rebel army.
Democrats made up its rank and file.
Democrats filled every office in the
Confederate Government, from the
Presidency down to the clerkships, and
messengerships. There wasn't a Re

and sent the army wh-ire it would be
unavailable, or cou'd be easily captured,
A Democratic member cf that same
Democratic Administration scattered
the navy all over the world, so that it
could not be ued on the rebel seaboard.
A Democratic Secretary of the Treas
ury plundered his trust to supply the
rebellion with money. A Democratic
President, entreated to do something to
save the nation, refused, declaring and
arcuinjr that ihe government could not
conslitutionally defend itself, and that it
wag uniawfui t0 coerce rebels, and he
sat sullenly down, like the Democrat

tne nation's arsenals l0 Le plundered,
anj lhe nation's ships, navy-yards and

armie3 to be organized, without lifting

Value of Advertising
A few years ago a man in Hartford
was keeping a modest shoe store in
State street, and in an o!d-fasioned way
would have got along and made a fair
living. A day or two ago one of the
Hartfcrd papers published a list of real
estate purchased within a few weeks by
this shoe dealer, the purchase money
amounting in the aggregate to SSO.OOC.
We know from items of his previous pur
chases that he was already a real estate
owner to a large amount. We believe
that he still keeps that unpretending
shoe store. How ls he made his for
tune? Advertising! That is the whole
secret. He has advertised far and
wide, advertised by the column, and by
his own or borrowed brains he made
his advertisements so readable that of
ten they were the most meritorious lit
erary productions in the paper. He
has kept his name before the people,
the people have bought his goods and
he is now a wealthy man. Jllbanv
$"' It is difficult to" make the
"Southern chivalry" aware of the fact
that the world moves. They liv e in the
atmosphere of the past, and for them
the days c'ilt and tournament, bluster
and brutality, the duello and the whipping-post,
still exist. A Rich-nond
journalist, who during the rebellion
was noted for his truculent hatred of
the "Yankee," has taken offence at
some strictures of theJNewYork Eve
ning Post, and writes a frothing letter
to the Daily J'ews, in which he regrets
that the habit and customs of the Yan
kees will not afford him an opportunity
of satisfying his honor by putting holes
through the bodies of the Post editors.
