Every ticket without these names is

matter what elsi it may have on it.
HAS CAIIEFUIalaY HOTLD
Judge Pierrepont says that since the
nomination of Seymour and Blair he
has "carefully noted the expresions of
southern journals and the speeches of
southern politicians," and that he finds
that "every leading rebel in ihe con
federacy regards the expected election
of Seymour and Blair as a complete
vindication of the rebellion." He also
says he "cannot conceive how any intel.
licent man, who does not wish the rebels
returned to pawer. the nation' faith
violated, its debts repudiated, its name
dishonored, its patriots insulted, and the
'lost cause' restored, can vote against
Grant!'' Judge Pierrepont is a life-
long Democrat, and one of the Sachems
of ihe Tammany society, but one who
has the moral courage to come out
against the men and it policy that
threatens our country with ruin. How
many noble patriots of this kind are
there in Nebraska to-day ? We know
there are many. We know there are
hundreds of men in Nebraska who
have acted with the Democratic party
who have "carefully (but silently) no
ted' these speeches and publications of
eouihern leaders of the Democratic
party, who art) not willing to encourage
these men of the enuih in any further
attempt at reviving the "fost cause,"
as every vote for Seymour and Blair
will encourage them.
THE XATIUX'8 LIFE
Depends upon the decision rendered at
the ballot-box next Tuesday ; for we
believe, with' many others, that the
election of Seymour and Blair, with the
attempt lo earry out the programme
laid down by the ruling element of the
Democratic party, will throw this nation
into such turmoil as will leave sma'l
hope for the future. This is a warfare
of ballots, and the party defeated next
Tuesday cannot renew the battle for
four years. By giving i: to the party
whose controling spirits openly and
boldly proclaim that the "lost cause will
yat triumph," what think you will be
the result before the expiration of the
four years? Can you be intelligent
and honest, and yet claim to believe
that this government is safer in the
hands of men who fought so persistent
ly for its overthrow, and who yet pro
claim secession and rebellion living
realities, than in the hands of the
men who saved it on the field of battle?
FOR OH t.Vr AND COLFAX.
All over the country, that portion of
the Democratic party which was oppos
ed to the euccess of rebellion, and in
favor of maintaining the old govern
ment and the o'd flag, are coming out
fearlessly for Grant and Colfax. How
can they do otherwise? They are told.ev
ery day, by men of their own party.
that the success cf Seymour and Blair
means a revival of the elements of se.
cession. We know that democrat
dislike to accept the views of
Republicans on these matters, as they
are inclined to think exaggerations are
made for party purposes. But con they
refuse lo listen to such men as Judge
Pierrepont, Hiram Walbridge, Gen.
Dix. Judge Peason, and the hundred
other prominent, cool-headed Democrat
who have publicly proclaimed them
selves in favor of the election of Grao
and Colfax, and have urged all men
who desire the perpetuation of Repub
lican government in America to do lh
same ? Think carefully, honest Dem
ocrat. upon the great issues at stake
and cast your billot next Tuesday in

who now wants peace and prosperity
in the country, says, in speakiag of the
effect in the south ; "These people will
lake ihe election of Seymour and Blair

fought by the North. In other words,
as an indorsement of secession." Do
