TH PROSPECT OF TUB DEMOCRACY. There re those who are weak enough to imagine) that the Democratic party is up on lie verge of ruin, that it is read to disband. This opinion has no better ba u than a few iuconsidorablo reverses in aeveral municipal and uuiniporlant elec tions. Their very defeat will in this in stance, as on all former occasions, be the means of a perfect and more brilliant suc cess at the coining National struggle. Tho country will readily call to mind how similar the present aspect of affairs is to the indications which proceeded tho last general election, and indeed of nearly ev ery contest which resulted favorably to the democracy. The patriotism and innato good sense of tho people is the safeguard of the Democratic party, as ve believe that par ty is the bulwark of our libortios. The present cry of its weakness and inability to grapple with the young giant of repub licanism 13 no more than a re-hash of a very old and very 6tale song, which has been sung by the ene...

LOCAL AND NK WS ITEMS? - - ' OCR COUNTY MORALITY, v, n 5 It must bo exceedingly gratifying to the Moralist and Religionist to know that tnoralitr and religion seem, in a goodly degree, to keep pace with our social and commercial prosperity. It b a consuma- tion of which we are justly and deservedly proud, and worthy of note in our favor. For a long timo the moral and religious tone of society in Ottawa county was con sidered by outsiders as very unenviable, and perhaps justly so. Few, indeed, even half a dozen years ago, wore the places of worship in all our wide domain, and mea ger indeed the congregations that honor ed even those few places with their pres ence on the first day of the week. But now, how marked the change ! At Grand Haven where but a little timo ago a very small school room afforded amplo space (and room to spare) for all our villagers, who could find time and inclination on the Sabbath to pay their respects to tho ordinances of the Lord's house now three large, co...

AGRICULTUItAL. GAND RRAPIDS ADVERTISEMENTS. STOVES AND IIAIIDWAIIE ! ! MUSKEGON ADVERTISEMENTS. HARRISON'S THE WHEAT MIDGE. It was surmised by Borne of our emi nent agriculturist, that the cool, frosty weather which has roccntlj prevailed j might have the salutary tendency to check the ravages of the midge in wheat, if not destroy the fly itself the cause of all the mischief. But the following para graph which made its appearance in a re cent issue of the Grand Rapids Daily Ea gle seems to convoy a different impression. But we hope the reported appearance of the fly in tliat county w ill prove to he a mistake. . We have heard of nothing of the kind, as yet, in Ottawa. But here w the paragraph: "That pest f of the wheat field, the midge, or fly, is reported to have mado its appearance in this vicinity.
