A GLORIOUS DAY!
Democracy is not yet dead!
Dubuque is healthy through and through!
Northern and Southern Rebellion conquered in a single day!
Last Monday was a truly glorious day for Dubuque. The southern rebels received their coup-de-grace with the falling of Richmond, and in Dubuque the enemies of the glorious old Union, the Abolitionists, were so thoroughly decimated that they will scarcely have the courage to raise their head ever again.
Secession in Richmond and Abolition in Dubuque, these two enemies of the Union were defeated on a single day.
The entire Democratic ticket for city offices was elected by a wide margin. Every ward produced majorities for the Democrats, something that hasn't occurred in Dubuque for the past ten years. Such a glorious result must certainly please each true friend of the Union, each Democrat.
Last Saturday we wrote in a short extra: Let us erect a bulwark against the prevailing corruption and crooked dealings in Dubuque at least, let us exclaim to the northern and southern enemies of the Union a thundering "Hitherto shalt thou come, but no further." And behold, we succeeded beyond all expectations. Much credit is due to our fellow German citizens for this glowing result; they declared themselves against the old party humbug in great numbers, and have proven by their actions that they know how to distinguish semblance from truth.
