The Cincinnati Commercial deigns to give the Dubuque Herald a notice, and this it does it:

The Dubuque Herald, complains of a want of conservative papers in the West.  If by conservatism it means such papers as the Dubuque Herald, Indianapolis Sentinel, Dayton Empire, and Cincinnati Enquirer, it is mistaken.  They are sufficient to satisfy the demands of the small squads of politicians, with traitorous instincts, to be found scattered about the country, and who are looking to what they call a reorganization of the Democratic party, with the special purpose of adapting it to the purposes of their old masters down South, when the rebellion shall be crushed and the States restored to their allegiance.
