The Awab entalu.
The following significant article from
the Iria' /Republie, the leading Fenlan
organ of this country, published in Chi
cago, shows that all Irishmen in the
United States are not blind to the man
ner in which the Sham Democracy use
and then snub and humbug them :
The tenacity with which the Irish pop
ulation of America have stuck to the
Democratic party deserves no other
name, cam be expressed by no other
name, than downright infatuation. The
whole programme of that party seems
to have been, and to be, peace with Eng
land at any price, no matter if peace
meant ruin to the Union, ruin to liberty
or ruin to every people striving to be
free. One would suppose that common
decency would prevent Democratic pa
pers from villitying and turning into
ridicule every effort that Irishmen make
toward freeing their unfortunate coun
try from a tyranny that has no parallel
in modern times. For the edification of
our Fenian friends and readers at large,
we insert the following " neat little arti
cle" from the editorial columns of the
great Democratic organ of the west, the
Chicago imaes :
" Kumors multiply concerning another
projected Fenian raid on Canada. The
fact that such a raid must end in the
defeat of those participating in it, to
gether with the death and capture of
part of the number, does not tend to cast
doubt on the correctness of the rumors.
There has been a blindness to conse
quences or an indifference to them in the
management of Fenian affairs, so far as
assaults on Canada and the attempt at
insurrection in Ireland are concerned,
which argues the greatest degree of
knavishness or stupidity in the leaders.
It is due to the rank and file in the Fe
nian organization that there should be a
much plainer statement of facts and of
probable results in relation to the pur
poses declared by the order than has
generally been given by the press of this
country. In proportion to the genuine
sympathy which is felt for Ireland in
her oppression, and the patriotism of
Irishmen in striving for her liberation.
will be the disposition to rebuke the mad
schemes which have attended the Fenian
military movements. They have ended
in the sacrifice of such impulsive and
generous spirits as were willing to risk
their lives on desperate chances in the
hope to benefit their countrymen. There
have been more than enough of such
sacrifices, and the members of the order
and the Canadians should be assured
that the Government will religiously
perform its duty in the enforcement of
the neutrality laws. This will put an
end to false hopes and to the turbulence
which they occasion in the order."
Now, we ask the most prejudiced and I
democratic of our readers, what they
candidly think of this article? Does it
show the "cloven foot" ornot? Is it
fair? Is it manly'? Is it true? It is
none of the three. Why cannot the
Chicago Times come out boldly and
squarely, and say plainly what it only
implies in the article quoted-" We and
our party don't care two rows of pins I
about Ireland, or its liberty, or anybody
else's liberty either. We wanted peace
with England before the war because we
wanted African slavery to become a per
petual institution in America in order to
gain the will of our dear southern friends; (
we want peace, now that the waris over,
more than ever, and we are determined
more than ever, ana we are aeterm.lea
to squelch Fenianism, for that might
lead us into war with our good friend
Johnny Bull, and America might thereby
become consolidated and great : there
might then be an end to domestic strife
and faction, and our party would go to
the dogs t And, then, think of the spoils!
' Ave, there's the rub ! ' "
We have fairly and impartially laid
before our readers the literal translation
of the article in the Times. It professes
a sympathy for Ireland, forsooth I Hea
ven defend us from such sympathy! It
is a sympathy that would tie an honest
man's hands while the footpad and the
robber plundered and insulted him. The
Times acknowledges that Ireland has
been and is cruelly ravaged. How would
it propose to alleviate the sufferings of
that unfortunate country ? We know
not, but would greatly lik., to hear t hat
may be the copperhead nostrums on the
subject. Perhaps the Times would favor
us with a small prescription. We prom
ise to treat its advice with as much re
spect as our brothers, the workingmen
of the WVest, entertain for it. The Dem
ocrats swear we must not touch Canada;
they will protect the exposed parts of
their dear cousin's possessions, and they
will enforce the neutrality laws. But
can they enforce them? We dare them
in words, and intend to dare them in
deeds, to do it. We will try which are
the strongest, the copperheads and their
English allies, or the freemen of Ameri
ca and the Irish! If they come to a
square fight, who would be most likely
to be knocked first into a ' cocked hat?"
He pause for a reply from the Chicago
The fact of the matter is, we Irishmen
have been the greatest dupes under .the
sun. We have, tlhroug. good and evil,
for long, dreary years, given all our
strength, all our support, to our nation's
enemnies. and now what do we get for
services rendered? A threat from the
most influential democratic journal in
America. that we must not on any ac
count lift a hand to strike down the mor
tal enemy of America and the undis
guised robber of our race! Here are our
thanks after all our unfaltering devo
fion to the party to which we first at
tached ourselves? Surely, the light of
truth must soon show Irishmen the right
path: the men who have proved false
to liberty in their own country must be
false to it in all places and at all times
STEAMERS BURNT.-On the 10th Inst..
two Missouri steamers, the Yellowstone
and Graham, were burned at St. Louis.
The Omaha Republican says: "Both
these were fine boats, among the best
that floated on the Missouri river, and
were well known at this port. The loss
is put down at $50,000. The Graham,
which arrived in St. Louis on Tuesday
onla to be burned, claims to have made
the quickest, time ever made by say
steamer on any waters, via: 2,8S miles
in fire days and nine hours, from mouth
of Yellowstone river to St. Louis. The
steamer Graham was 248 feet in Iemsh,
88} feet beam and carried 1,000 teas

The se ea of Uepl._-
Speaking of the Democratic party, the
SEngsuirr says: " Why should we kindle
Sagainst us the animosities of a great
party that rules in a number of States
and divides others, and that grows
stronger with every revolution of the
political wheel ?"
The Enquirer is mistaken. The Dem
ocratic party does not rule in a number
of States. There are but four States in
the-Union that are even partially con
trolled by the Democrats, as far as
we are informed-Connecticut,Delaware,
Maryland and Kentucky. In Connecti
cut, the Governor is a Democrat, while
the Legislature is Republican. The
Democrats, in no sense implying power,
" divide " other States, and there is not
an iota of evidence to show that the
Democratic party " grows stronger with
every revolution of the political wheel."
That party is as weak as water. It
scarcely deserves the name of party at
" Kindle animosities! " Why, we ask,
should the people of Virginia kindle
against them the animosities of a party
that is great-great in numbers, ener.
gy, resources. power-the Republican
party-a party that dominates over al
mest every Northern State and has in
disputed control over the Federal Gov
If those who were Confederates engage
against this party, and vote and work
against it, what can they expect from it
in the way of kindness? Nothing. Do
they expect to defeat that party and pre
vent it from carrying out its policy ? If
so, they expect an impossibility. That
party is the Government, and its will is
law. We do not exaggerate. All that
is necessary is for it to say that Congress
shall do, and it is done. The resolve of
a Republican caucus to-day becomes to
morrow the law of the land by the en
actment of ('ongress, and there is no
power of successful resistance to it any
whpre-in the Supreme Court, the Ex
ecutive, the army. the navy, the north
and, least of all, the South. It is idle to
say it cannot do this or dare not do that.
Its power, humanly speaking, is only
limited by the will of the northe.n
masses, by indeed its own will, for the
northern masses and the Republican
party are one and the same. As to dare
not, it dare attempt anything. A party
that hesitated not to undertake the sub
j ugation of the Southern States at a cost
of five hundred thousand lives and three
thousand millions of dollars, to emanci
pate four millions of slaves, to enforce
martial law throughout the whole North,
to give suffrage to the emancipated
slaves, change the Constitution in the
most important particulars, is not likely
Sto halt at inferior undertakings. It is
not of all the unseasonable things, the
most unreasonable to expect it to be
afraid after it has done these things to
undertake and complete the reconstruc
tion of the Southern States in its own
way, and to the ruin of those who oppose
it? We can very well understand why
we should not do anything to " kindle
against us the animosities" of this "great

The Humboldt Register, in an exas
perated spirit, rather harshly condemned
Gen. Longstreet for the views expressed
in his recent letter. The Virginia En
terpries thereupon drew the following
mild comparison which has a wider ap
plication than perhaps the Enterprise
While Longstreet boldly fought the
Federal armies in front, the editor of the
Register assaulted them in the rear. One
used the sword-the other poison and
the dagger. One exerted himself to de
stroy the armed battallions of the Gov
ernment-the other to ruin the credit
and paralyze the energies of the North.
One wielded a weapon and invited war
the other carried a broom and prayed for
peace. One claimed that the South was
protected against defeat by the unity and
strength of its people-the other that it
was equally protected by the Constitu
tion. One struggled like a man and was
vanquished-the other fought like a
sneak, and remains as rebellious as ever.
One risked his life-the other not even
a reputation that was worth preserving.
After the war, one stood in the midst of
desolation, with starving thousands
around him-the other reclined in the
lap of plenty, surrounded by a political
party clamoring for power, and hoping
to secure it through the desperation of
the Southern people. One seeks to make
some kind of reparation for the wrong he
assisted in inflicting upon the South by
favoring an early return of the rebel
States to the Union-the other thinks
only of the reconstruction or the Demo.
cratic party, and would rather see the
Southern States remain as they are for
twenty years to come than have them
re-admitted into the Union under Im.
partial suffrage and Re.ublican rule.
The following communication from

sms:-I reply to yours of the 20th of ay,
sectaion 7, paragraph 49, of the Internal
Revenue Law in force, provides that "*Every
person, or Irm, or company, who shall employ
others is the buinses of miming for coal, or
for gold, silver, copper, lead,iron,siac, spelter
or other minesal, not having paid the tax
thereor as a msanfacsurr, and no other shall
b regarded as a miner.' The special ta of
a miner is tea dollars, wdch the collector Is
autherised to collect by distraint and sale of
the miner's property, in awe of neglect or re
frrl to pay the same. The amoaets returned
to this onee, as collected from misers' lice-se
and special tax receipts in Montana, are as
fgllows: For the year 135, $2,296; for the
year 1864, $4,060 34; snd for the year 167,
as far retars are made, $1,e1 6.
The amount collected from the above nam
ed soerce in Cal.ornia for the year 1i64 was
$6s72 50; Colorado Temitory, $440; Idaho,
