From the if. Y. Tritium.
"lientorftUoua," say? a philosophic otnerver,
'are the woihI of goverumnuta." Tliey are
naturally rapaiil'iu, veugH'ul, bitter, impla
cable. The French of 1814-15, who
suddenly dipcovereil that they for twuy yoars
had been subjects ol hta Mnji-Hty Louis XV III
the Dcsirrd) without kuowing it, were mate
profoundly to realize the truth of the remark
above quoted. When Legitimist writers talked
of the brilliant victories won by hie (at'ore.a'd)
Majesty's annief, between the years 17!)i au4
1812, under the commaud of Ueneral Hona
parte, their feelings of indignation and of de
rision struggled desperately for ascendaney.
The Democratic party (juarrelle 1, divided,
ail threw away the l'renideuoy in 18U0. No
other party did half bo much towards elfotiug
its overthrow as itself. It" still hel t the Su
preme Court and both. Houses of the inooming
Congress; by Sfccesniou and rebellion, itmiian
dered these also. That seoessiou, that R-ibel-lion,
were pre-emlneutly tin work of JMiiiij
cratio politicians. Those of the South deii-td
the authority and sought to destroy the unity
of the republic; thor-o of the North pledget
themselves to resist "coercion" unto blool,
but didn't. The spiiit remained willing, but
the flt-sh was weak, lleuce, secession aud
rebellion, after a long, desperate, costly,
bloody struggle, were crutdied out.
The Kepublicans were but two lifths of the
American people in liju'O. They elected their
l'resident through the Democratic split, engi
neered by the Southern Democracy on pur
pose that they should eleot him. Congress was
made over to them by the withdrawal of the
Southern Democrats. The Supreme Court, so
far as it became Republican at all, was like
wise made over to them by the Rebellion.
l'resident Lincoln was eminently a man of
Feace. The Democracy allowed him but this
alternative "Fight, or break your iu augural
oath to exeoute faithfully the duties of the
Presidential office." Thc-y backed hira to the
wall, aud, by the bombardment of Fort duui
ter, compelled him to light.
Slavery was the inciting, overruling ciuse
of secession. Slavery said to the Union, ")n.
of us must die 1" whereupon President Lin
coln, standing for the Union, said, "Then- it
shall be Slavery 1" aud his word was ulti
mately made good.
Lefore the war began, Horatio Seymour
assailed the Republicans on suspicion that
they would not tamely submit to disunion as
bitterly as he did yesterday, lie accused tuta
as recklessly in IStll as he does in 18 JS. lie
held them then responsible for the conse
quences of Secession aud Rebellion; aud he
does bo to-day. Rivers of blood have been shed,
mountains of debt have been piled up; and he
charges it all, not to tho.se who assailed, but
to those who upheld, the Union. He de
clared that we could never subdue what he
called the South; but we did.
lie predicted that we would bankrupt the
Treasury and confiscate the property of our
people; but the farms aud houses tint he pro
nounced mortgaged for more than their value
by the war debt are worth as much coin to-day
as they were when his party quarreled itself
out of power. Aud every dollar of the debt,
every drop of the blood, he would score up to
our count, is righteously chargeable to the
Other, lie talks to-day as though he had been
an open instead of a covert traitor throughout
our great struggle. If it was right to main
tain the Union by war, then the cost of that
war is justly chargeable to those who souyut
to destroy the Union.
We never heard of a speech by Seymour
during the war that was not chuckled over by
avowed sympathizers at the North with the
Rebels; and he spoke yesterday in the same
Vein to the assembled Confederate Congress
men and Generals n Tammany Hall. As
usual, be blamed the Republicans for every
thing, the Rebels for nothing. It is nothing,
or worse than nothing, to him that four mil
lions of our countrymen whom Democracy
left slaves Republican rule has set free. It is
nothing, or worse, to him that no slave-chain
now clanks in all our broad land. Ue prates
of the debt; but he loathes the debt because it
represents the means whereby slavery aud
Democratic Rebellion were overthrown, lie
prates of liberty and equality, but mourns
over broken shackles and the shattered domi
nation of caste. For the first time in our
history, every man in our country enjoys the
protection of equal laws; and for this Seymour
regards the Republicans with an implacable
hate. For, if history shall regard the last
seven years as the second heroic age of our
country, what can it say ot Horatio Seymour
that he should not hear with a shudder f
Radical System of Retrenchment.
From the jy. Y. World.
The Rump Congress does not scruple to vote
away millions by the round Boore for the main
tenance of a useless standing army; for the
royal travels of a holiday navy; for the keep
ing up of a rotten and corrupt breeding-school
for the supply of radicalism under the guise
of a Freedmen's Rureau; aud for the support
of a military despotism in ten subjugated aud
peacefully disposed States of the Uuiou. This
money is drawn from revenues literally
wrung from the sweat-earned wages of helpless
tax payers, who must patiently submit to the
wrong until the proper time arrives for pro
tecting themselves by the ballot.
They inoreased their own pay two thousaud
a year, exclusive of mileage, which is drawn
from the Treasury at the rate of ten cents per
mile, while they pay on au average about
three and a half cents. They also gave
twenty per cent, extra allowance to their own
clerks in both Houses; whbh brings their
favoritism into conspicuous aud condemning
prominence; for the department clerks whose
pay they refused to increase are employed all
the year round, while the Congressional clerks,
who are much better paid, have from three to
six months leave of absence out of every
twelve. Perhaps Mr. (Jreeley can convince
the people of the jnstice of this, by his prompt
and irresistible logic.
The barefaced hypocrisy of these professed
retrenchers is unspeakably shameful, aud the
country should know the facts. Take General
Grant for one, whose tender conscience com
pelled him to recall bis earnest recomuieuda-
tion of increase to the clerks, aud use bis in
Huence to prevent the allowance, now urging

From the N. Y. Tinus
Although Senator Elmuuds' resolution has
bu n properly dropped, we trust that Congresi
will not adjourn until it has made provision
tor participation by the South in the Presi
dential election. Mr. Trumbull's argument
against a measure conferring Tijion Congress a
discietionary power to count er omit the
votes of Southern States is unassailable.
Nothing whatever should be left to the opi
nion or will of those whose political position
exposes them always to the suspicion of par
tiality. The right of the reconstructed States
to stand on the looting of other States In re
gard to electoral votes is incoutestibU, and no
thing sllVcting it should be subject to partisan
iutei tereLce. It is not more nec essary to guir 1
against fiaudiu the case of Arkansas, Florida,
Noith Carolina, or arty other State which miy
perfect its reorganization, than iu the case of
ew Jerpey, or New York; and the authority
would be dangerous which contemplated any
otLer coj, Urgency. Hence the undesirable
nets of Mr. Kduiunds' resolution. The object
of its promoter may have beeu good, but it
was too ppparently liable to abuse to be
adopted with safety. Congress cannot a(l')rd
to encounter the imputation of tampering
with the Presidential vote. Whatever else
partisanship may have achieved or attempted,
let it be rigidly excluded from the Electoral
College. The integrity of the ballot-box is of
greater importance than the triumph or defeat
of sny candidate.
We agree with the Wthat Congress ought
not to separate until it lias admitted to the
Unfon every Southern State which complies
with the terms of the Reconstruction acts. No
object to be pained by an early adjournment
compaies in importance with the object to be
Ferved byperfect'u the Union previous to the
election lor the Piesi It ncy. How the States
may possibly vi.te is not a mjtt-ir for conside
ration. The main poii.t to be attained is, that
tbey shall take part, in due form, in au elec
tion which may be thus i)i,de the means of
signalizing thtir restor-uiou to th fellowship
ot the Union. The accomplishment of this
result is worth the brief ex-eutiou of the ses
sion which it would probably invo've.
Hut whether Congre.-s fiui-h its work, or
adjourn, leaving it unfinished, it will expose
itself to grave animadversion if it leave the
question of counting votes open for future
Settlement. On every ground of propriety aud
right, that question s-hoald be decided authori
tatively before the election. Lrt tun country
understand what Stale? will participate iu the
election, and what States will be excluded by
default ? A joint resolution, passed on the eve
of adjournment, miy define the standing of
btates wnicu, neing still subject to military or
provisional government, will hare no claim to
recognition in the counting of electoral votes.
It is neither just nor expedient to expose a
question so important aud yet so delicate to
tne cliances of partisan controversy.
The Convention in a Fo A Urairl Conor
uinny i.osi.
From the N. Y. IltrulU.
The country has for some mouths past
looked forward with interest and anxiety to
the assembling of the Democratic National
Convention. It has been universally regarded
as au event oi no ordinary importance. The
people, weary of radical misrule, have be
sought the organized Democracy to cast aside
all dead issues, to accept the lessons of the
war, and with a broad and comprehensive
platform and a fitting candidate to unite all
the elements of opposition aud rescue the
country from the hands of the Jacobins and
jobbers of Congress who have run riot in
Washington for the past two years
Never did a party enjoy a more favorable
opportunity to recover its lost ground and to
secure political supremacy for the next quar
ter ot a century, and never was good fortune
in greater danger ot being recklessly thrown
away. The Convention has now been in ses
sion in this city for two days, and enough is
Known ot its action to render it almost certain
that its strength will be frittered away through"
the filly and blunders of its leaders, and that
instead of coming up to the standard of publio
expectation it is doomed to take rank with
the worst of those narrow-minded Copperhead
gatherings that during the war left the Demo
cracy in a helpless minority in every State of
tne Union.
Let us look for a moment at the facts. Two
years ago Congress perfected what is known
as the fourteenth amendment to the Constitu
tion, leaving to the States the right to control
the question of suffrage, but providing that
where any portion of the people shall be de
I arrtd from voting on account of race or color
the persons thus disfranchised bhall be ex
eluded from enumeration in calculating the
tiatis ot representation. Tne Jlcralil predictel
lor such a policy the'nuiversal approval of the
. people, and upon the i.-sue of the amendment
as a full and final settlement-of the question of
reconstruction the Republicans swept the
country from Maine to California, elect
ing every Governor and nearly every
Congressman throughout the loyal States.
Hollman and his Tammany backers in this
Sttate eet themselves up iu opposition to this
reconstruction policy and t-tillered a disas
trous defeat Lut the .lacabin leaders, as
soon as they had i-ecuied power, di.-regaided
the emphatic popular verdict aud inaugurated
an entirely new and revolutionary policy,
usurping the fuuetious of the Executive,
raising the General of the Army into a mili
taiy de?pot, rtlliug the Southern States by the
bayonet, forcing up m them unqualiiU l ugro
suil'rage, di&fraiiciitMug white eiii.r-ns, aud
finally destroying the authority of the Su
preme Court, ia order that the judicial arm
might not be Ftrt-tched over the Constitution
to shield it from these revolutionary assaults.
The country grew disgusted a:id alarmed at
this bad btith and violence on the pr.rt of the
radical Congress, and the leult was the
breaking dowu of the I fge majorities of lvilj
in Stale alter State, the redemption of Con
necticut, Pennsylvania, and Caliioruia, and
finally the overwhelming Hood iu New York
which swept the r.idioals from power aud
buried them uudir Ih'.y thousand Ddinouratiu
majority.
This j owe) fnl conservative reaction turnel

i a-ii .,! x i .- .oguitiou of the war
snd of the (treat changes it had brought in IU
train. Kspeoially in New York did the splen
did conservative majority of fifty thouami
claim consideration; aud from the fact that the
Democratic leaders aud their organs gave coun
tenance and support to the Chase movement
it was believed that they were aroused to the
importance of the occasion. But It seems that
th popular cry was only echoed by them as a
means of killing off Penlleton, and that while
shouting for Chase they were, as usual, pro
paring the way for the success of their owu
selfish intrigues. It is acknowledged that New
York, with her commanding iutlueuce, her
large electoral vote, her great wealth, aud her
magnificent revolution of 1807, had only to
declare boldly iu favor of this Chase movement
fiom the start to control the action of the Con
vention and carry the conservative bAnu'?r to
victory. Her delegates, actuated by personal
views and quarrelling among themselves, have
sacrificed all their power, and whatever the
result may be, the responsibility lies at their
doors.
The truth is, the New Y'ork Democracy hive
broken laith with the conservative masses,
and have shown themselves to be without in
telligence to gra.'.p the situation or courage to
vindicate their own positiou. li.iginuiiig with
Holl'man, and continuing on'through Seymour
and lielmout down to poor Church, they are
all ignoiant of the great lessons of the past
eight years, butting their copper heads agaiust
the idea that the war was unconstitutional,
that Lincoln was unconstitutional, tint Con
gress is unconstitutional; and that there is
nothing in strict conformity with the Consti
tution except Jeff Davis, General Lee, poor
Pierce anil the old DHiuo.iratio organization,
embracing Tammany Hall aud the Albany
Regency. These men, after playing fast and
locte with Seymour, have now hit upon the
expedient of nominatiug a country lawyer
and Albany accouutaut as NiW York's choice
for the Presidency, in place of Chief Justice
Chase. Their platform, cariied la the p icket
of one of their numerous candidates for Gov
ernor, is as weak and wishy-washy as their
candidate. 'They do not recognize the four
teenth amendment, as the people detnau led
tbey should, nor do they prope-ly deuounce
the barbarism, brutality, and degradation of
regro political and social equality in the
Southern States. They are bold only in cheat
ing and rascality and timid where courage is
a virtue. The result will be that alter ex
posing their own weakness and cowardice
tbey will become parties to a platform as un
meaning as that ot the mongrel Chicago C in
vention, and to a noniiuatiou that will be
mberably beaten iu every State iu the Union.
Not a candidate they have nj.uied stands a
chance of success, and the probability is that
whatever their action may be, Judge Chase
wi'l still be in the field, with a complete con
serviitive ticket iu every Stte. They vill
thus nn' only be compelled to submit to the
rule ot Grant and the radicals for four years
to come, but will lose the State spoils, for
which alone some of them are playing. Iu
fact, tinless they nominate Chase they may as
well abandon politics as a profession, break up
thc-ir organization, and make up their minds'
to go to work and earn au honest living
dining the rest of their days.

lnnous alcoholic and vinous coucocttous lin
bihed at too many of llie public bars ot tue pre.
