Sweetwater, Thursday, Jane 25, 1868. Tlio Nomination. We hope, if tlio Democratic party al lows itself to bo duped into the nomina tion of Chase or any other expediency candidate, that it may suffer defeat at the Presidential election. The eouutry has been radically mis-ruled long enough, to be sure; but while a radical change is terribly needed, and must, if possible, bo obtained, nothing less is worth contending for. ,To all practical purposes wo sco no ditrerenco between Grant and Chase. We had as soon vote for one as the other, and had about as soon vote for the Devil as for cither one of them. They have both consented to and aided and abetted in the humiliation, disgrace and almost entire ruin of the South. They have both affil liated and operated with the party which has continued to persecute and oppress a defeated people who for three long years have been suoing for peace. The only difference between them now is, that Grant is in open communion with that party, atid Chase is...

But n deeper joy that hath nn alloy, from tho heart's pure fount may flow, When its wealth of love is bestowed above, Where all its praises go ! In communion sweet, at the Mercy Scut, We call the Christ our owu, And never again can we complain, Who are nevermore ulone. Though we gaie not now on the lovely brow, Kor us that felt the thorn, Though afar from home we pilgrims roam, And our feet, with toil, are worn ; Though we never have pressed that pierced hand, It is stretched our lives above ! And we own His care in grateful prayer, "Whom having uot seen, we lo...
