It has become a noticeable fact, to
which wc beg to call the attention of ev
ery German citizen in the Union, that
the Democratic press of the country, as
a party instrument, has persistently ta
ken sides against the Germans in the ter
rible struggle now going on between
Prussia and France ; while the Republi
can press has earnestly advocated the
cause of the Germans against the usur
per Louis Napoleon. We do not call at
tention to this with any view to making
votes, but simply as a notorious fact from
which any intelligent person can draw
his own conclusions.
The sympathy of the Republicans
throughout the Union is bold and out
spoken. Their Platforms everywhere
announce their convictions that Prussia
ought to win in her struggles against the
tyrant Napoleon. Let our German fel
low citizens, who work with democracy,
call for similar pint forms and equal sym
pathy from democratic conventions. It
is their dut3T to feel and to know that
they work with their friends, and we ask
that they demand this proof of demo
cratic friendship from the leaders of the
narty they work with. The democracy
of to-day is either for France and against
Prus-ia, or her newspapers falsify its
portion most fearfully. Let German
Democrats look into thismatter and they
too will sec the difference. -
litiM EM me it.
Principles never die! Men may
change, foibles undiscovered in the days
of popularity may grow into mountains
of iniquity under the microscope of
prejudice, but principles remain un
changed and unchangeable. From the
numerous political stand points of latter
day statesmen, views may be enunciated
which are harmonious here or discord
tint there voices will be raised for and
against, no matter who di.-courses no
matter what the subject. Wc have al
waysobserved the disposition to be hypo
critical just before Conventions and just
after them. There is an effervescence of
the an'ipodes of thought and action to
be found in almost every human action,
where the many have equal privilege.
Such things must be ! There is no mil
lenium in political matters anywhere on
the green earth. But men should reflect
that principles remain the same. The
banner of Republicans is to day the ban
ner that was bon e at the head of the
column when it resisted the foul attempts
on tlio nation's life throughout the rebel
lion. Under Republican principles and
beneath the glorious folds of the Repub
lican banner, the Union was preserved
and houie.-teads provided for the land
less. A great war was closed in a tri
umphant peace, as its legitimate fruit, at
the very time that Democratic principles
tin I t Democratic colors refused men and
money to stive the nation, and declared
the war a failure. Beneath the banner
of Republicanism millions of burthen-.-oiiio
taxation have l?en taken from the
shoulder of the people, which was
placed there by Democratic corruption,
fostered and directed by Democratic
traitors. Democratic principles led to
insurrection and loaded down the people
with taxation. Republican principles
Mipprcs-ed insurrection and removed the
burdens as fast as possible. Let Repub
licans remember these things when they
hear of affiliations with Democracy. To
be true to the principles of a party, pre
cludes deserting to the enemy or giving
them aid and comfort.
Labor Reform Ticket.
To co operate with the Labor Reform
Party, it is necessary to ignore both
great parties and assume allegiance to
nothing else but the rules and regula
tions of that organization. No man can
work with it or in it who dares claim to
be a Democrat, and we can show abund
ant proof of this fact.
This organization has held its conven
tion, made its nominotions, and now
asks the two parties to elect their ticket.
W await developments. llulo Jiej
t'.er. Don't be too positive about your op-po-itiou
to this arrangement, Dr. Brook.
Yo-i will probably sing out from the
other corner of your mouth after the 7th
of September. You will '"whip in" the
nicest kind, and we anticipate this is a
little piece of strategy on your part to
be con.rrJ, with something tangible, into
a support of Lett and Lake.
The Kritnbllrnii lnrly.
This great organization, which showed
i self great in war, has proved even
i;i eater in peace. It has met even-
emergency of government with decision,
and solved the problem of national life
and universal freedom. It has been for
tunate in its public men generally, while
its measures nave been dictated by a con
scientious purpose, and guided by a
lofty patriotism. Peace has been its
u:is.-ion, and the prosperity of the whole
country its cheri.-hed purpose. If we
look to the record, we shall find that it
has accomplished more for humanity,
and more for the development of all the
material interests of the continent, than
ail previous parties combined. Based on
the theory of law and order of equal
rights among men the friend of schools,
churches, and benevolent institutions of
all kinds the friend of labor is in every
department, and the grand progress of
the age, m all that is noble, elevating
and iv titling, it stands to its opponent as
light to darkness. It does not deal in
negatives. Its platforms are not made
of whining complaints, but affirmative
principles; and while it glories in what
it has already done, it points confidently
forward to even greater purposes auil
nobler objects. So fir from its mission
!cin"r ended, it has just begun. If
, - i . . -. t -
-vuicuca ;s out true to itsen, me rising
. tat'j;ni-u of this grand organization will
guide its people safely in the road of
pjaee, nappincss and prosperity, even
beyond the ordinary desire. Chicago

OUR WYOMING LETTER.
Fort A. I). Russell, Wyoming Ter'y
August 27, 1870. )
Dkar Herald : Since I last wrote
you I have made a flying trip to Denver,
the metropolis of Colorado. That Rail
Road Prince, ex-Governor Evans, having
sent me a pass, the temptation to visit
that beautiful city, though only for one
day, was not to be resisted. Starting at
:30 p. m. in about two hours we reached
that magc town of Greeley on the
Cache la Pondre near its junction with the
Platte. Remembering that this town is
not yet one hundred days old, we are re
minded of the oft-repeated saying,
"Wonders will never cease." The in
habitants arc called the "Meeker Colo
nists." There are between 500 and one
thousand inhabitants already on the
ground, and a large number of fine build
ings already finished and others rapidly
approaching completion. The streets
are well laid out and a system of irriga
tion adopted, by which every square is
abundantly watered and the rapidly
growing shade trees and luxurient veg
etation, give evidence of the fertility of
the soil and of the perfection of the sys
tem of irrigation. A ditch of nine miles
in length is now nearly finished, by which
several hundred acres will be irrigated ;
and next summer many fine farms will
be opened. It is beautiful for situation
and will be a flourishing town. Four
miles further on another town has sprung
up called Evans, and though started first,
being for a long time the terminus of the
R. R., Greeley has far outstripped it and
will soon rob it of all its importance. In
two hours and a half more wc arrived in
Denver, which has all the appearance of
an eastern city. I was never more dis
appointed in a town in my life. Instead
of a paste board town like many of the
western cities (so called) I found most
beautiful substantial brick blocks with
mansard roofs, fine brick hotels, four
stories high, stores, churches, banks, tic.
The residences arc finely shaded and
flowers and shrubbery are abundant. In
walking out into the suburbs past the
neat white cottages with their green
blinds, beautiful yards and umbrageous
shade trees. I could hardly believe I
was not in Canandaigua or Geneva, N.
Y. The system of irrigation adopted is
so perfect that every street has its stream
of water flowing along either tide and is
easily taken into the front yard, gardens
and every place where it is needed. The
Ditch company, though not receiving
any dividends, have done a great work
for Denver. The sales of California fruit
pears, peaches, grapes and plnms are
really fabulous. I stopped with an old
friend from St. Joseph, C. E. Pooler,
Esq., whose sales in one day, while I
was there, amounted to eight tons ; of
course, his trade is wholesale. There is
another wholesale house where nearly as
much more is sold. The number of
places where this fruit is sold by retail is
marvelous. I feasted for twenty-four
hours on as delicious fruit as ever grew.
How strange it teemed to be walking
about with the thermometer at ninety
and see on the mountains fifteen or twen
ty miles away the eternal banks of snow
clearly defined for miles.
I attended a social meeting at the
Presbyterian Church Wednesday even
ing and found a band of devout worship
ers with their accomplished Pastor, Rev.
Mr. Wells, at their head doing a good
work ior morals and religion. On Thurs
day evening I took tea at the beautiful
and hospitable mansion of Ex-Govcruor
Hunt, with the aforesaid clergyman and
his estimable lady. The Governor was
absent but his accomplished wife did the
honors most gracefully. The Governor
was raised in the same county in New
York with myself. He is a most enter
prising and prosperous man.
Yours as ever, A. Wright,
Post Chaplain, U. S. A.
Hon. E. W. Farley, of Newcastle, has
received the Democratic nomination in
the Third Congressional District of
Joe William?, the colored conservative
Tennessee spouter, has taken the stump
for the Democratic party in lxuisiana.
From present appearances Gov. Mc
Clurg will be nominated for Governor at
the coming Republican State Conven
tion in Missouri on the first ballot.
The Republican ticket for Congress
men in Iowa is now complete, as follows .
First District, Geo. W. McCrary; Sec
ond, Wm. Smyth ; Third. W. G. Don
nan ; Fourth, Madison M. Waldon; Fifth,
Frank W. Palmer ; Sixth, Jackson Orr.
Hon Wm S Groesbeck imperatively
declines a nomination for Congress from
the Democracy of the Second Ohio Dis
trict. He says that "under no state of
things would he take the nomination."
lion Hugh J Jewett says he will ac
cept the Democratic nomination for
Congress in the Columbus (Ohio) Dis
trict Judge, Shellabarger has not yet
formally accepted the Republican nom
ination. but will undoubtedly do so.
The next Legislature of Pennsylvania
will have the apportionment of the
Congressional and Legislative districts,
the first for the next ten years, the sec
ond for seven. Both these are now
fixed by the same legislature for the first
time since 1801.
It is said that P. L. Cable, the
Democratic candidate for Congress in the
Fourth Illinois District, threatens to
spend $50,000 in order to secure his elec
tion. As he received the nomination
solely on account of his wealth, the ru
mor is plausible.
The Republicans of the Fourth Dis
trict of Ixmsiana have nominated Gen.
James McClerry for Congress. The
General is an able lawyer, a fine scholar,
and a gallant Union soldier. He lost an
arm at Shiloh and was dangerously
wounded at Stone River.
It is thought that in the event of Rome
being left to the Romans, the Pope will
establish himself at Avignon, where
they want him, and where the Popes
lived from 1305 to 1376, although the
offer of the English Government to pro
tect him on the island of Malta will be
r:-t accepted in cese of an invasion.
Paris, Aug 27.
The Constitutional says the idea is to
call out for active sorvice all former sol
diers from 25 to 35 years of age, married
or unmarried, has treated some uneasi
ness, and adds that it would be better to
incorporate the 350,0(K) Garde Mobile in
the regular armies.
It also says the Prussians act not onK"
against military laws, but those of hu
manity. At Strasbourg they have crueliy
forced all young men to work in the
trenches, and in some cases threaten
them with death if refused. The French
are thus forced to kill their own brethren.
Such acts are unworthy of this age-
They gi-o a singular idea of Prussian
civilization, and they only serve to in
crease the French hatred, and Augment
our determination to punish them.
Paris, August 27.
One city journal, this evening, has a
remarkable editorial. It says : Next to
the news of the near approach of the
Prussians to the walls of Paris, that
which most occupies the public mind is
the possibility of an open rupture between
the government and General Trochu. It
is reported that the Empress demands
the dismissal of Trochu from his position
as Governor of Paris, but we can silrirtn
nothing positive. It is nevertheless true
that a person has been peimitted to ex-
J ress carclesslp his opinion shat Trochu
lad been asked, in the presence of the
Empress, to resign.
The journals of Nancy give a gloomy
account of the manner in which the
country is stripped by the Prussians of
provisions and of every kiwi of forage,
and of fine horses of the farmers, for
use of their artillery. It says the diffi
culties of an entire year are crowded into
one moment. The ruin is complete and
unspeakable. Long years will bo neces
sary to repair the damages of these few
days of invasion.
Six wagon loads of Prussian provis
ions, captured in the recent engagements,
reached Lille to-day.
Great disturbance prevails in the Prus
sian arm'. The Prussian soldiers quar
rel with those from Bavaria and V urt
emberg, aud it is found necessary to place
them in separate camps. A feeling
somewhat simi'.ar prevails in Berlin,
where a serious riot occurred and Bis
mark's house was attacked.
Ex-Queen Isabella has given a palace
in Paris for the use of the wounded.
Typhus fever is raging in the Prussian
A strong column of Prussian artillery
has entered Chalons.
The Garrison at Strasbourg yesterday,
made a successful sortie, aud captured a
convoy of cattle and some munitions of
war. The city still makes a vigorous re
sistance. The morning journals persist in the
statement that there have been serious
engagements within the past few days,
rcsultina iu favor of the French.
The approach of the Prussians on
Paris creates the most intense excite
mont. London, August 27.
A letter from a correspondent at
Rheims, of the 4th, says it is reported
that Bazaine, with a portion of his army,
is between Montmedy and Longwy, on
the Belgian frontier, where he is waiting
the arrival of Macmahon. The report
is considered doubtful.
There was a tight yesterday, near
Montmedy, between the advance cavahy
detachment of the French and Prussian
armies. The latter were repulsed.
Ijarge reinforcements have been sent
from Paris, by the Northern Railway,
for Macmahon. The army tactics of
Macmahon appears to be to gather up
the broken corps and thereby swell the
ranks of his new levies, and then sweep
along the borders of Belgium, avoiding
an encounter with the Prussians that
would be likely to involve a pitched bat
tle. By this movement he will be en
abled to leave the Prussians on the South
and probably effect a j metion with
Bazaine north of Metz. If successful
in this, Macmahon will, it is thought,
strike the Prussian line of communica
tion at St. Avol. This is believed to be
the strategy which Count Palakao hint
ed at a few days ago to ihe Corps Legis
latiff. According to French reports 15,000,
and according to Prussian reports, 20,
000 French soldiers are disabled, by hos
pital and typhus fevers.
The Prussians say half the journey to
Paris is accomplished, though all the
obstructions arc not left behind.
French telegrams are printed here to
day, dated Tuesday, saying the English
Government, vhil ! its militia and volun
teers are only half armed, ships forty
thousand rifles to the Continent, at the
same time, and that the English people
seud lint and bandages to the wounded.
The official report of Bazaine, shows
a French loss at Resonville of 23.000.
Representatives of France in England
and Prussia have signed the ratification
of the Belgian treaty.
General Montaigue, who was wounded,
was taken prisoner by the Prussians.
A Paris letter sa3s the Emperor has
actually been suspended. His cabinet
remains in power, only because if.s chief
was thought to possess administrative
capacity. The new Governor General,
Trochu, and the new Committee of De
fence, are now ruling France absolutely.
Governor General Trochu is capable of
becoming another Albemarle.
The Prussians hsve deolined to send
any more flags of truce to the French on
'The Prussian force besieging Stras
flourg are sriif engaged in turning the
course of the river to shut off the sup
ply of water from the city.
