aJj CoifJ Ft)ma Lri'liaiit article,
defending this of Iro:,-. we ex
tr(l,.i ile
conclu-ive summarv of ihe
reasons why Irishmen should not vote
the Democratic ticket:
As a very great many of u vote for
ihis or that party f.r very slipht reu
sons, or for no reason at all. 1 venture
to oll'cr some cogent reasons for not vot
ing the Democratic ticket. If one or
ail of the arguments has weight with
any undecided or unprejudiced Irish
irier-, the ellct will be the salutary di
vimh of the Iriidi vote. I forbear t
ofi . r any reasons adverse to th" lidi
cals, b. cauie there are enough find too
many of our people at prese. t opposed
to them.
First The D-miocra'ic party i al
lied to ihe Anglo Confederate party in
the South, which carried n the war for
the destruction cf ihe Union.
England and the Confederates beet
successful, this rept; die would have
ben ruined; and wi'h Us disintegration
the .topes cf i ll success for the Iri-h
exde, and ah aid for his caue, would
have been lot forever. The success
of the secession would have been a
great ca'amity for Ireland, and a -ucl
he Irish citizens of America resisted
t : nnd in resisting it they resisted the
Policy and the manifest handiwork of
England. Therefore it is unreasonable
fur them now to allay themselves will
England and Kngland'sdevr ted friend.
for this is what they would do if they
connect themselves with the So.uhtn
"D -"iiiot rncy '
Second The Southern planters
formed a real ari'toracy, with peculiar
ind ui just poli.ical privileges just a
hSgrani as those of any European aris
'orai'y. The wur has levelled tliPin
down and levelled the negroes up. But
the p'anter party are now trying, und-r
the pseudonym of Deotocrnts. to recov
r ihe:r former ari-tocra'ic posit. on and
iirivileges. Now, aristocracy and true
leotocrncy rannot co exist ; therefore
-very genuine fri-nd cf American de
rmcravy must reis the p'anters poll
Third Rever ly Johnson ha- taken
occasion to fissure the English in ad
vance thai whoever may be elected
. i. . ,. :u l . . c.
D iii-'iess il was
.Mr.' "Seward
he ninety day prophet. who ndvis-d him
to venture on 'his agreeable predicion
and impose on the John Bull by a
reckless di-regard for verac.ty. It this
tatement wa as true a it is fahe, we
should be just dml in voting fur neither
Seymour nor Cirant. But we suspect
hat Jt htistn has a better right to know
;he opinions of the former than those
of the la ter, and therefore the decla
ration r.mde at Sheffield should preju
dice uii against the Democratic candi
date. We smou.d be the most egregi
ous fools in the w. rid if we voted for a
true friend of England.
Fourth The Democratic party are
now obstructionists conservatives, lories,
reictiouists . while the Republicans are
progressive, liberal and aggressive. It
is with ihe party which moves forward,
and that loves liberty tor liberty's sake
that the Irish should advance; for it is
only from these that we can hope for
any help.
Filth The Radicals passed the bill
for the pro'ection of naturalized Irish
men, as we asked them to do; and be
it remembered that only the Democrat
voted for the reprisal clause in the orig
inal bill, while .-even Republican votes
were given to u tain it.
Sixth We hold the Democratic par
ty mainly responsible for the ami Irish
and pro Lngli.-h policy of President
Johnson He has shown himself in
different to 'he fate of our comrades,
and we should visit his sns upon his
political supporters.
Seventh--Partly through devotion to
England and partly in accordance with
the old policy of the Southern aristoc
racy, the Democrtic party are opposed
to the annexion of Canada and in favor
of the absorption of Mexico. As Re
publicans. anti-motiBr'hisis, ana anti-Engli-h
citizens of ihe United States,
the Fenians should oppose a party
whose policy is exactly the reverse of
that which favors their interests and
Eighth August Belmont, ihe Head
Center of the New York Democracy
and the Chief Engineer of the Tarn
many Hall convention has been openly
c harged in the public press with swin
dling the Fenian Brotherhood and
malring himself an accomplice of Eng
land, in a most treacherous manner, in
a purely commercial and confidential
transaction. Are Irishmen made of
such sorry stuff as to support a prrty
which is guided by their meanest foe ?

Since then I have carefully noted the
expressions of Southern journal, and
the speeches of Southern politicians,
from Wade Hampton on his return to
Charleston, to the recent manifesto of
B. H. Hill, and I find that every lead-
mg rebel in the Confederacy regards
the expected election of Seymour and
IJIair as a complete vindication of the
rebellion, and as certain to restore the
South to every right which she had be
fore the war, including the "trampling
ito dust " by military feet, the procla
nation of Freedom nnd the XlVih

The World has two ways of account

been different. 4 Henry,"said old Mr.
