that the proprietor of Deo Bow's Review has deter

of that well-known and valuable m,~othly. It
was frermerly published here, and this seems to
be indeed the best place whence such a prulica

this city, which position, however, will not inter

doctor of the Review, will continue to be asos

heretofore, the great moral and material interests
of the touth, and especially of the city of New

COIUVTAMI AND DEOcsACY.
We are glad to see that the oonvention of
oonservatives whiA vet ,lmI met at Jackson,
Miss., resolved to assum the name of the
Democratic party, and to ally itself with hat
organization. It is a wise movement, and
will lead to good reselts. After all the name
of conservative, applicable as it may be to those
who are struggling against radiesa tyrany
and misrule, is distasteful to that great
party which is now 4ghting the battle of con
stitutional liberty. It is associated with ideas
of class legislation and with recolleetiems of
former divisions which are apt to make it un
popular. Conservatism, simply as opposition
to progress, or development, or legitimate
evolution, can never be permanently sueoess
ful in a growing country. Its victories, in
the very nature of things, must be transitory.
A conservative sentiment may identify itself
with the party of reform and reaction, when
reform and reaction are necessary to check
the excesses of partisan tyranny, and to re
conduct the public mind to the fundamental
doctrines of public liberty. Such is the case at
present. The conservatism of this country
naturally allies itself with the Democratic
party, because the Democratic party is striv
ing to preserve the Constitution from subver
sion, and the government from revolution.
The Democratic party is, in fact, at this mo
try. There may be revolutions in the inter
eat of tyranny and despotism; and there may
be reactions in the interest of liberty and jus
tice. In such a contingency the revolutionary
party is, really, the retrogressive party, and
the reactionary party is, really, the liberal
party. At this moment the Republican party
is the party of despotism, of tyranny, of abso
lutism, of retrogression; and the Democratic
party is the party of liberty, and law and pro
gress. In such a contest the liberalisa and
the conservatism of the country go hani in
hand. They have united for the purpose of
preserving those institutions which are the
true basis of civilization and enlightened pro
For the conservatives to stand aloof from
the contest because the Democrats refuse to
surrender their name and to abdicate their
organization, would be quite as absurd as the
proverbially hopeless effort to bite off the
nose in order to spite the face. The Missis
siIpi convention, following the example of
Louisiana, has shown a just appreciation of
these truths, and has wisely deferred to the
exigencies of the situation. Whatever divi
sions may have existed in the past-whatever
differences may arise in the future--it is cer
tain that the only practical divisions and dif
ferences at present are those which separate
the Republican party from the Democratic
party. Between these we must choose. The
people of the South will, doubtless, make
their choice wisely and well.
POPULATION AND NATURAL SELECTION.
The full meaning of modern civiliz.xtion is
a problem which extends into a far and as
yet an inconceivable future. It is true that
there is an ambitious school of philosophers
who hold that the future offers a iceld of in
vestigation similar to that of geometry or,
astronomy. But they are, in fact, immeasur
ally distant from the ground of ratiocination
indicated by the geometrician when he says,
"state one angle of a pyramid, and you state all
its angles and the whole of its cubic contents,"
and Ly the astronomer when he says, "state
the sun. and you state the solar system, state
the existence and the motion of a single planet,
and you state the existence and the motion
of all the plantts." Were it otherwise, the
secrets of the future could be revealed to the
eye of scientific contemplation in aspects as
preitive as the demonstrations of geometry
and the discoveries of astronomy. There
would be no longer a vast and impending un
,nown to make human lifo a "pleasing, anx
ius L, in ," and hope, which spreads its
wings only over unfathomable seas, would
disan ptar from the sight of man forever. It
is idle, however, to pursue the hypothesis.
The mind, which is always in some sense a
prisoner to its immediate environments, can
not snllicieutly extricate itself from present
conditions of tbought to conceive a compli
cation of humanity with time different from
that slech now exists.
liut if we cannot for see the ultimate
forms alhich modern civilization will take. we
can at least perceive its present drift and dis
cover some of the influences which impel it.
The principal of these are vitally concerned
with social statics and dynamics. At no
former period were so many able minds
engaged in stud ing the relations of polulu
tion to eabsietence. the forces of race pre
servation and race antagonism,'and the laws,
and the differentiating and ameliorating
etflh its, of natural seltction. There is no part
(.f English literature more irnterestiog and
inlportandt in its practical b'arinis, than that
which coml'riees the routributions on one or
another of these subjects by 3Ilthus, Mill,
Berltert Spencer and lDarwin. We may refer
to the same general category a w ,rk entitled
"l Fcundity, Fertility and Sterility," byv Dr.
Matthew Duncan, of Edinburgh. The object
of the work is to illustrate by an
elaborate collation of statistics the
probabilities of motherhood in each year
of the child-bearing period. Dr. Dunean
slhows Utnt the climax of fertility is reached
at the age of thirty years. from which it de
clines until it reaches extinction at the age of
f,rty or forty-tfive. The care which he takes
to prove the longer intervals that must occur
between births after the age of thirty, is very
suggestive. In this he responds, uncon
soustv perhaps, to an anxiety on the part
of intelligent Englishmen and Scotchmen to
follow the advice of Malthus and Mill for
people, voluntarily, without renouncing mar
riage, to limit procreation. Dr. l)uncan allows
an average of three chi ren to marriages at
thirty. This is the number fixed by Malthns as
the highesbt average that is possible without
lut the Malthusian reform is open to some
very grave objections. Marriage and virtue
with resprect to a great number of people are
la:iost convertible terms; and, consequently,
the renunciation of marriage on the part of
this class up to the age of thirty years is
equivalent to renuaciaion of virtue ap to the
same per&iod. Moreover, those persons whose
intellectual cultivation and moral discipline
would enable them to impose upon them
-elves the restraints necesary to limiting re
pyoduction to the requiread average, consti.
tate the very elma of people which it is most
desirabl to taltiply; while slerior classesu
ineludiq the -m..., *ne impeuvidens and
$he ts reia, wold not tot practice such
islf-.iog . but vuub ha dsdwiider room
for multiplicatIon ta proportion as the
number of the imtsilir the 0 al, the
provident and tlhrtty aeld be liated by the
proposed restrt ta. Beside all ftb the
proposition of Malthus that abateace
diminishes, relatively, -s populatiaon nreaseme,
is not sustained by either political economy
or history. It would be impossible, -o.
cording to this proposition, to acoonat for
the existence of such a population as that
of London or Paris. Yet the people of
those cities, at a density of a half million to a
mile, live on the average in princely luxury as
compared with popdlations of Central Africa,
numbering about one to the mile, and sur.
rounded with a superabundance of natural
resources of subsistence. The truth is that
all experience goes to teach that nature,
though bountiful, is never lavish. She is te
nacious of her equilibriums, and jealous of
all excesses. All attempts to increase her
supplies by artificially diminishing the num
ber of consumers are doomed to failure. For
diminished production will always follow
And now we come to the only view of the
tendencies of modern civilization that is com
patible at once with the gradual increase and
the general improvement of the human
family. This view takes into account the
principle of natural selection operating amidst
the struggle for existence constantly waged
between different species. The sentiment of
so-called fraternity and equality, which forms
one of the most powerful moral forees of
Ir 'ern times, points plainly to the ultimate
incorporation of all nationalities into a single
empire or republic, an'. to the ultimate merg
ing of all races, as well as all languages, into
one. Inferior races, forced by the dogma of
eqjuality and by the laws of trade into a com
mon arena with the superior races, must go
down as inevitably as a stripling who never
wielded a sword would have gone down
if made to face one of the gladiators of a
Roman amphitheater. Even now savage races
are perishing in every direction before the
gaze of civilization. They can not live
under the new conditions established by
civilized peoples. The very philanthropy that
proposes to reclaim and elevate them, is fatal.
The dark and the black populations within
the boundaries of the United States are not
any the less doomed because they happen to
be the special objects of political solicitude.
In the course of time they will be eliminated
by the operation of the laws of race preserva
tion and race antagonism and the process of
natural selection. Such must be one of the
final issues of a combat to which forces are
marshalling in all quarters of the givilized
world. Though it may be bloodless, it will be
deadly until it has fully vindicated the prin
ciple that the earth is the inheritance of the
strongest and the best.
Some one has suggested the plan of having the
roofs of cars made separate from the bodies, and
fastered just soff5ciently to prevent their blowming
off. If this plan were carried oat, a great many
railroad accidents would be attended with
less fatal results, as the roofs of the cars would
come off and allow the passengers to extricate
themselves from the wreck more readily than
