The rise and march of the Republi
can party which culminated in the
election of Linco!u was but the protest
of an outraged and indignant nation
against the existence of the worst form
of human slavery; exis-tioy, too, in the
only free Republic on earth. Previ
ous to the election of LincolD, lha in
telligent patriotism of America was in
the Republican party; the first shot
fired cn Fort Sumter brought in the less

land; and the defeat of the Union army
at Bull Run brought into the Republi
can ranks every m id who bad au in

that during tha war there were only
two parties Republican and Traitors,
Men essayed to preserve their identity
as wir Democrats and be luyil to the
Union at the same time; but they were
swallowed up in the great vortex of
patriotism that was known as the Re
publican party. From ih breaking
out of the war to in close, Democracy
was unheard of, unless where its virus
broke out in riots and slaughter, as in
Baltimore, New York, and . other pla
ces, and in the ranks of the Knights of
the Golden Circle. Remember that all
this time we were classing the true
loyal Democratic soldiers, who were
fighting under the Republican banner
of the Union, as Republicans. Many
others were scared into the ranks, and
some went to show they could be Dem
ocrats aL.d loyal at the same time. We

one mighty leader to conduct the minds
of the millions into one single focus
and direct the patriotism and power of
the united party on the true road to
healthy peace, a dozen would be-leaders,
each with his own little admiring ring
essayed to take his place. The dozen
eaders divided the grand army into as
many corps, and each acted independ-

Treason was invited to hold its carui

and a few renegades in power mocked
at the wrath of the people. Those
who had lail down their arms, and had
agreed to accept the issue of battle and
acknowledge their errors, grew coura
geous as the Executive of the victors
courted their consideration. Instead,
therefore, of having the South recon
siruted.and the nation at peace, treason
is as rampant in the land to-day as in
the palmy days of the rebellion. Men
