By THIS PAPER HAS DOUBLK THK CWCVLA- TIOS OF ANY OTHER IX THE CoU-NTV, APTORDIHG ADVANTAGES 10 ADVLKJISX-KS. ..rfl The Election in the First District. We stated a while ago.thnt we would like to see Eltnore defeated in this District, because of his betrayal of the trust of organ! zation of the Free Soil Party, a n J not from any objections to him personally, or to hU political views. Our article was caught up with avidity by the press opposed to him in that District, and an attempt made to ndJ to its weight, by stating that vvs ware liia personal friend, and therefore u ere as mild as posible. With the m a x i m thai "all is fair in politics," this tallies very well, as hhto did the unscrupulous charges against him of being opposed to general suffrage and otherwise limited in his devotion to the principles of Progressive Democracy. But the election is now over,nd El mo re is defeated. Will the same press t h a t lugged in our former article to help traduce hi n, give the ea mo publicity to what we say now? We wanted him defeated once because he "jukeJ" us at tho State Convention, and we cojid We have be One of th« 8tr0ijf esl Nature is the affinity nan. 4 i ; ! we areMifirt enta c t'fcat those ,1 the "same objects havefbreaen^thsr. ·. Tfaa union of effort of many ^IB lividual* 'to obtain the same object is what constitutes Party. And jlitt so certain as ali men love to give and secjre sympathy and assistance, to artd from those laboring fur the disseinmi-iia- tion of the Principles dear to them, the adop- ion of tho Measures of their approval, the iromotion of the Men of iheir choice, just so certain are all m^n ptrtizim. And when we hear a private individual, a pjblic man, a preos denouncing Party, and crying out against it, in the flrtt case we regard it as the honest, u n i n f o r m e d indigiation of Truth crying out against Damagogucism; in the other two, we regard it as the very embodiment of the most r a b i d U^imvngueism -itself. It is only equalled by the tenacity of sticking to the Usage of Paity, lung after the Principles which it was designed to advance have besn lost sight of, nud when that Usaga by i n t r i g u e has been trade to sub.\ert the very orgiaization that created it. The Congressional Canvass in the 1st District in this State has presented noted examples of t h i s last. In s u s t a i n i n g the not get over a little feeling of retaliation. ( [ a d ep enJerit, C a n d i d a t e , the Press devoted to his interest denounced Party without stint, declareJ that it has forever foreswoin it, and iias done t h i s eo rabidly, and wiih such point and perseverance, t h a t Partizan- ship, in its bitterest phase, has been exhibited in ha very course. The very Principle of Independent Canvassing, and the Denunciation nf Party Usage, was made the basis of its new pattizan effort--vVis in fact the Parlyism of its ne\v devotion. It was all well; best that such a course should be pur- suee. Good has resulted from it. People liave been waked up more to the true Mission of Parly--have learned that Party Machinery, when put i i operation after the Principles that created it have obtained in public opinion, and a t e no longer the spirit of agitation, after, in fact, the Soul of the Party is dead, works evil instead of good, and that a re-organization is necessary. But tho Spirit of Party was exhibited We arc his personal friend, and proud to say so. We k n o w him to be Radical and Democratic on all the public questions of the day. His impulses are all with Progressive Humanity. Il is notorious that he has done moie for Land Reform in this State Iban any other man. He once belonged to the Whig organization, but v. Iiile so, we heard him often say that the Southport Telegraph was really the best and truest Democratic paper in the State: a remark that showed to all acquainted w i t h ilia character of the Telegraph, wh'ch way his impulses tended. For cor, we deem him as true a Free Soil Democrat as Charles Durkee is, and would be giad nci't tuns to see him elected. Our vengeance is satisfied. Abolition of Grand Juries.

A few exceptions were very bad, but promises were made to remedy them ere the second visit of the Committee; Two or three were very stubborn, and would give the Committee no satisfaction. The Committee will make a second examination to-morrow, and those who have nol fixed their fire conductors in a safe man ner will be reported to the public. (L7*Banvard j« exhibiting his Panorama of th« Mississippi Jin Paris, drawing; crowded houses. I in its most vigorous form, end the gi eater this viijor, the more glaring tho stultification of those who exhibited i t , With this preliminary, or raHnr digrea- ioti, we wish to say a word upon tho Mission of Party. All men possess, more or lew, what is called Public Spirit,--a sort of phileprogen- itiveness for the good of humanity, that each i n d i v i d u a l feels for his own posterity. Parents will toil for their children'" future benefit : so the People will labor for the good of after generations. Hen* progressive, new Ideas are time evolved, new Measures suggested for the public weal, and njw Men brought forward for popular support, a=s the exponent of these Ideas and Mpastires. Earnest men seize tho agitation of these Idea", and Measures, and labor to convert the Public M i n d vo their utility an'l necessity, and seek to el- vate to tbe public ofhces Men devoted thereto. To establish the Irutli of those to bring Government to adopt these Measures, and to elect these Men, is the Mission of Parly in a Representative Government. When we speak of Party, the mind contemplates all these ingredients, ff t contemplates the wlnle subject. A Party without Ideas,--Principles--could have no ife; they are its very soul; it could not exist. A Party without Measures would be inefficient; it could work no good. Principles must be put into practical operation to advance the interests of h u m a n i t y . An'J this is ihe function of Measures: to adapt Principles to public use. Without practical Measures, all agitation of Principles would be chaotic, aimles*, and valueless. A Party w i t h o u t Men, would be effort wholly ineffectual, gutdeless, like a ship without a lielm. Thus Party, when fully defined, consists of PRINCIPLES, MEASURES, and MEX. And when we hear any one proclaim as the course of bis party, "Principles, not Men," we hear tbe saying of those who know nothing of the Causes of Party, nor of its Mission. The first discussion of its Principles, the first proposition of its Measures, is the first beginning of Party. Men feeling the truth of the Principles hold meetings, adopt expressions of approbation, and resolve to work for their dissemtnination, and publish the same to the world. Others in other localities, of like feeling, do the same. A desire for general communion, and co-operation, brings people from these different calities together. This is the first rude effort at Representative Conventions. This is the beginning of Usage. For a better and more general expression, to extend their efforts, and to effect a more efficient ization, they consult together, and adopt a plan setting forth how general meetings should be called, how different localities should be represented, be. Thus Usage is established.

Organization and Usage thus established Become a guide for all to follow thereafter. So long as the Principles need discuss! in, long as. the Measures need urging, ti ey aid the good cause. But progress is jie aw of man. In time the truth of the Principles universally obtaip, tbe Measures .ire all adopted, or become inapplicable from a new existence of circumstances. The «iu) of the Party thgii becomes dead, but the Organization nd Usage remain* The s i b - tancethusdisposed, of but the machinery e- ·naining, demagogues, and ia'rigtiing pol ticians seize the machinery for their o vn aggrandizement. When Party comes to this, then honest and t-riie man become disgusted, and are led to cry out against Pir.-y, by mistaking the cause of the evil. But as Organization and Usage are last perfec'ed in the creation of Party, so they are the 1 '9t to be abandoned when the Party lias accomplished its Mission. But as we before said, Progress is t IB law of Humanity. As soon as the P r i n c i - ples and Measures, that first demanded lie aid of Party (ortheir establishment, are-recognized and adopted, new Ideas are disci v- ered, new Measures are become practicable, and a new Parly is needed, or a renovati3u of the Q 1 d. This is the present st-ate of anVvrs. The -Assembly, e,y(W.) ,.)^ ** L H. C«istopk r (D.) A. Greenleaf (W.) S. M. Wotefltt, (Ind.) Sheriff. Thfttnas Noyes, (D.) F. C.

New Parties will be formed, or the old will have to incorporate new Ideas into their creeds, f and urge the adoption oT the new Measuies demanded. We care not which. The h t- tee, however, will be the morj pract'cal le course. Democracy is Progression. It represents the Progressive Spirit of H u m a n i t T . Arid consistent with the object of its M s- sion, is the advocacy of new Ideas a id Measures, a.s fast .as Progress demand t. To this Party we belong. To and Measures we hope always to remain firm. To its Organization and Usages, so long as they subserve the Interests of t i e Party, we will s u b m i t our guidance. W h - n these are'lost sight of, we hold them 10 longer binding--the Party generally w i l l no longer hoi I them binding^ The last Canvass throughout this State -in fact throughout the Union--proves t h i s . Sotting" the "Regular Usages," has becoi IB fashionable. The Bolters have succeeded. Why t h U ? Because Parties have bef n lardy in recognizing the new Truths that the Public Conscience puts forth.
