From the N, Y. World.
Morton, Butler, Chandler, Oonkling, and
Cameron are new illustrations of the old truth
about the madness of the foredoomed. The
Republican party, falling into the hands of
such men, has Buffered injuries from which
nothing can now redeem it. Recently ho pow
erful, enjoying peculiar advantages, boasting
splendid organization, it goes to pieces as
Bwiftly and surely as a wooden ebip dashed
against storm-beaten rocks. And yet the
crazy men who hold command insist upon
driving it again and again against the same
fatal barrier. Wielding with merciless severity
the lash of party discipline, crushing down
vith scorn and insult every Sumner, Schurz,
or Farns worth who dares to stand up for jus
tice and constitutional obligations, and rely
ing solely npon blind partisanship to secure
immunity fr offenses such as no free people
has ever yet forgiven, these desperate leaders
seem resolved to force every man who re
spects the Constitution, every man who de
itirea trne reform of any kind, to ally him-
eelf with the Deniocratio party,
ship is still powerfuL But there
dant proofa that patriotism has
Let Republicans say what they will of the
Democratic party, the great truth still re
mains, and forces itself every day upon the
convictions of reasonable men, that the mad
career npon which extreme radicals have en
tered can be arrested only by the power of
the Democrats. Thoughtful men boo with
undisguised alarm that the Constitution,
strained to the utmost during the war, is
now in immediate danger of such an over
throw that the will of one man, or of a party
caucus, shall be our only supreme law. As
a Republican Senator reoently admitted, the
Constitution has already been so shingled
over with amendments and precedents that
its original form can scarcely be discovered.
Each new precedent acquires, under radical
hands, all the power of an amendment; each
amendment is strained and magnified into
a revolution in our form of government. To
day, with the assent of a majority of the
Senate, the President grasps and uses at his
pleasure the war-making power. Without
even the poor pretext that a treaty is still
pending involving inchoate rights he dic
tates with his guns to one foreign
power, interferes actively in the internal
affairs of another, and, at the risk of war
with any civilized nation, pushes a corrupt
scheme in defiance of publio censure. Even
while the Executive thus usurps power in
dealing with foreign nations, and grossly
abuses the power thus usurped, his party
adherents are demanding for him a new
and almost unlimited extension of power in
domestio affairs. Give to him the right to
send troops into any btate without applies
tion from any local authority, with njne of
those restraints which the Constitution wisely
interposes between despotic centralization
and local Belf-Rovernment, and of ms own
mere motion, upon information known only
to himself, and of which lie is toe sole j udge,
to proclaim martial law wherever he likes,
and what farther utep toward the subversion
of our liberties will remain? Only one if
indeed that is a farther step. It will remain
only for American treemen to copy the ex
ample of Rome and decree that one man shall
"take care of the republic.
It is not strange that Republicans by the
ten thousands begin to feel that they cannot
honestly sustain any party by wuioh the
liberty of the people is thus assailed. How
ever strong their attachment to their party
may be, they realize that duty to the country
may require its defeat. Intense hostility to
Democracy does not blind everybody to the
fact that the Democrats have both predioted
and consistently resisted this progressive en
croachment upon the Constitution, and they
alone have the power to make effective resist
ance in time to save free government from
the impending overthrow, ilenoe it is that
a few Republicans in Congress begin to as
eert more boldly their independence of cauous
or Exeoutive dictation. They are foroed to
speak out by an overwhelming public senti
The Demooratio party owes it to the coun
try and to the cause of self-government not
to repress this rising independence of parti
sanship and returning attachment to the Con
stitution by any revival of questions which
have passed from the arena of practical work.
It is the duty of every sincere patriot to save
the country from Ciesarism. To that end it is
a duty to meet with hearty welcome all men,
of whatever faith or association in the past,
who are ready to work for the overthrow of
the corrupt combination by which we are now
ruled and cursed, for the success of genuine
reforms affecting practical questions of the
present and future, and for the restoration
of the Constitution to its rightful supre
macy. Let men like Morton and Butler,
Cameron and Chandler, go on laboring to
revive old issues, and to force upon the De
mocrats the same controversies wherein the
Republicans have hitherto prevailed. This is
manifestly the only policy whioh gives them
a chance to retain their grasp upon the Gov
ernment and to filch the liberties and the
earnings of the people. But no true Demo
crat should help them in their scheme. The
conspirators cannot unk more effective allies
than those who persist in forcing obsolete or
irrelevant questions upon publio attention,
or by acts or deeds of violence help to fan
once more into flame the dying embers of
civil fctrife. With Grant and his coadjutors
war is a necessity. Every Democrat, on the
contrary, may ardently pray, "Let us have
TAX REFORM BY ABSTRACT PRINCIPLE.
From the A'. Y. Time.
Our entire Bystein of raising the national
revenues has been the growth of special
emergencies, and the result of a varying con
test between interests of diverse strength
and importance. It would be impossible to
construct any general principle capable of
covering all ita multiplied anomalies, just as
it is impossible to trace any biagle financial
or economical law which was consistently
kept in iew during its formation. Curtailed
as it bi.u been of many useless and unproduc
tive taxes, the system remains, by the
confession o' all parties, fall of crudities
and irregularities. This being tho case, it
would appear at first sight eminently desira
ble that some comprehensive principle
should be devised to guide the work of re
form. What has grown without method would
thus, in the estimation of various theorists,
assume harmonious proportions by the opera
tion of scientific rule, and if once we get hold
of the guiding string at the proper end, we
bhould certainly, by carefully following it,
get out of our labyrinth of revenue problems
with both profit and satisfaction to the nation
at large. Unfortunately for this promising
theory, there is as tnucn aiuicuity louna in
applying general principles as in getting them
For example, Mr. Kelley has obtained what
looks on the outsido like a very solid victory
for protection. The Forty-first Congress was
induced by the same author to aooepi, on
"the true principle of revenue reform," the
proximate abolition of the internal revenue
system, Ine 1 orty-secona uongress, aioeit
still more pronounced in its opposition to
monopolies, has accepted the same declara
tory resolution that was previously affirmed
in December last, ine passage 01 sucn a
resolution may help to furnish a fresh point
to Mr. Kelley and his fellow-defenders
of the coal, salt, and pig-iron duties.
wLtn these come up again for dis
cussion,, but we hardly imagisie that even
they expect it to affect a single vote
on any of these issues. It did not prevent
the last House Representatives from giving
ns free coal, and it will not prevent the pre
sent one from repeating their lost decisive
vote on the coal and Bait monopolies, as well
as probably touching the cogna.e excess of
the pig-iron and wool duties. The people
would doubtlesB be very glad to see the rates
on distilled spirits, tobacco, and malt liquors
prove sufficient for all the legitimate expenses
of the Government, and thus do away with
tbe great army of national tax-gatherers re
ferred to by Mr. Kelley. But that tbe enor
mities of some of the existing
customs duties should be en
tirely neglected, as Mr. Kelley's resolution
obscurely implies, while all the efforts
of revenue reformers skould be direoted
towards relieving the nation of internal tax
ation, is a proposition which can never be
reduced to practice. Mr. Kelley may proba
bly find future occasion to remind some of
those who voted with him on Monday that he
designed his resolution to stop the way
to all reduction of customs duties till the
taxes on stamps, incomes, etc., have been
abolished. In such case he will find himself
open to the retort that his resolution con
tained no positive expression on any such
topic, and that though Republican revenue
reformers believed in Mr. Kelley s "true
principle," they were not prepared to regard
it as the only one bearing upon the question.
Tbe defeat of Mr. Parker's resolution, de
claring that the tariff should be so reformed
as to become a tax for revenue only, pre
Rents a lesson of a somewhat similar charac
ter. Mr. Kelley's resolution is of a kind
too general to be of any practical importance
to anybody. Mr. Parker's, in its referenoe
to "vast special interests," and in its very
distinct purpose to revolutionize our cus
torus duties without further delay, was oal
culated to hamper the free action of the
House npon Biogle questions of tax reform
that call for separate treatment, as well as to
commit it to a much more sweeping policy
on this question than the country is yet pre
pared to indorse. As our revenue system
stands at present, there are three parties
vitally interested in it the Government, the
manufacturers, and the people. All three
demand, then, equal consideration in all
measures of tax reduction. Antagonistic as
in some respects these separate interests may
appear, they cannot be considered apart from
each other without mutual detriment. Mr.
Kelley and his friends wish us to sacrifice too
much to the manufacturers, the adherents of
Mr. Bontwell s financial policy have a too ex
elusive regard to the necessities of the Gov
ernment; while the free traders want us to
consider the interests of the people divorced
from both of the preceding. It is possible
to oive the latter element more attention
than it received in the construction of our
revenue system, but it is neither just nor
profitable to disregard the claims of the
other two. Tax reform will not proceed,
any more than tax creation did, by abstract
roles, but will evolve itself from the play of
varied interests in the gradual fashion that
will alone render it universally beneficial.
A RULE OF RUIN.
From the X. Y. Tribune,
Moved by anxiety to secure their indemnity,
the Germans have insisted that the French
Government shall make short work of the
Paris rebels. Possibly but for the complica
tions arising from the presence of this third
party whose interests demand prompt action,
the civil conflict in France might be brought
to an end, by the temporizing policy advocated
by M. Thiers, without further serious blood
shed. The assault which has been resolved
npon in consequence of the German attitude
will doubtless be bloody; but it is not by any
means certain that the long investment, which
M. Thiers contemplated in his desire to avoid
bloodshed, would not have resulted In ex
cesses in l'aris uy which the mnooent men,
women, and children, alike would have suf
fered torture and death. The temper of the
Communists has already brought pillage, im
prisonment, and massacre; now it threatens
wholesale slaughter. These fellows are not, as
they believe themselves, of that "inspired
rabble with which Dumouriez turned back
the German invasion during the revolution:
but rather the anarchists, whose excesses in
the capital drove the old Jacobin warrior to
declare a constitutional monarchy the only
salvation of Paris from misrule. The Paris
mob is now, as then, the worst enemy of the
republic; and again drives France to accept
the demoralization of personal government as
a refuge from the horrors of no government.
Paris is in less danger from Government
shells than from Communist decrees; bom
bardment ean destroy no more churohes than
the mob has already pillaged; and an hour of
unbridled license within the city may cost
more lives than a day's struggle on its ram
parts. The assault which prevents these
threatened horrors and ends this anarchy will
not, therefore, be wholly an unmixed evil
And what a terrible misrule of a month it

from any military point of view. They had
a large proportion 01 tne 4 0,000 National
Guards intruited with arms by the Germans
to maintain order as a basis for an army. These
have been increased to 100,000 in numbers,
but weakened by accessions only of undisci
plined rabble and by the appointment to com
mand of unskilled soldiers. This hastily col
lected mob was marohed against Versailles on
April 2 (Sunday having been chosen as the
occasion possibly through contempt of re
ligion), and its right wing enoamped
west or Fort Mont du Valenen, though
it was held by a garrison of Govern
ment troops. No previous effors to
xedure this work or to seduoe the garrison
from its duty were undertaken; the insurgent
commander appears to have thought that the
Government troops would refuse to fire upon
tbeir brethren. Their error was disclosed
early the next morning when the fort opened
pre tipon the insurgent camps and dispersed
tbe right wing in a short time and with little

they made their way, as best they could, be
hind the fort again, and nearer Paris. Their
left column had meantime encountered oppo
sition fioulh ct the city, and they soon found
themselves restricted to tbe forts whioh they
had previously oocupied. The Government
riglit wing oocupied the positions held by the
Germans on the Heights of Sceaux, and from
there they have neither advanced nor been
Ibe left wing of the Government army
followed up the success of April 3, and ad
vanced from Fort Mont du Valenen towards
the Seine, near the bridge of Nenilly. The
advance, of this part of the line was accom
panied by several affairs of no moment, and
by vigorous bombardment of the southern
foits by the right wing as a feint. But on
April 7 (Thursdny last) the left wing, having
got into position, carried the Neuilly bridge,
and passed the Seine. The insurgents' left
fled to tbe walls and erected barricades at the
Porte Maillot, the entrance by the Nenilly
road to the city. The right wing
of the Government troops ad
vanced into the Bois de Boulogne, its
advance occupying Sablonville, a suburb ad
jacent to the walls and near the Maillot gate.
lie barricades of tho latter have been demo
lished, and a breach in the adjacent walls has
been effected by the fire of Mont du Valerien;
and it is here doubtless that the assault is to
be made. The fleet has reached Paris, and
is anchored jnst below the Neuilly Bridge, to
take part in the bombardment of the Porte
Maillot barricades. No operations on the
south, other than severe cannonading, have
taken place, the forts there proving a bar
rier to any advance of the Government
troops, and the insurgents foolishly keeping
on the defensive there as on their right.
I he passage of the walls effected at this
point and the assault under tho protecting
fire of the fort and the batteries will doubt
less prove successful the issue is not doubt
ful, but at the same time it is not reaohed.
That the insurgents will fight in their barri
cades is far more probable than that they will
fight in the open field; and from the first
barricade at the Arc de Triomphe, whioh the
rebels hold, to the Tuileries and the Hotel de
Ville itself, they will resist feebly and with
spasmodic energy, it is true, but with bloody
and deplorable result. If not despair, pride
itself will nerve them to resistance, and the
vain, stupid fellows will go down to ruin in
spired by the belief that the world looks ad
miringly on at heroes, when it really sneer
ingly contemplates only madmen.
AMNESTY THE REPUBLICAN POLICY.
From Harper' a Weekly.
The Republican party, npon coming to
power in 1801, was foroed to deal with the
.Rebellion. How formidable the emergency
was will never be torgotten by this genera
tion, nor with wnat patience, valor, unbend
ing resolution, and complete triumph the
danger was confronted and overcome. The
party maintained the Government, emanci
pated the slaves, amended tho Constitution
in the interest of equal liberty, and restored
the rebellious States to their relations within
the Union. We say the Republican party did
this; because, if the Democratic party had
controlled the Government, the power of the
siavenoldiDg aristocracy would have been so
confirmed as to make national regeneration
almost hopeless. Had the Demooratio party
been in power during the last ten years.
Blavery would still have existed in half the
country; the national flag would have pro
tected it in the Territories; free speech would
have been annihilated; all the great guaran
tees of progressive liberty and civilization
would necessarily, under the dominance of
slavery, have been destroyed, and the spirit
and purpose of the Union would have been
This appalling catastrophe, not only to this
country, but to constitutional liberty every
where in the world, was avoided Ub the na
tional success of the Republican pUy in the
election of I860, and by its continued suooess
to the present time. Meanwhile, every mea
sure for securing the logioal results of the
war, and for confirming the eiual rights
which it had established, has been obstinately
resisted by the Democratic party. As its
theory of State rights vaguely and loosely
expounded and asserted in the Virginia and
Kentucky resolutions supplied the pretense
of the HebelUon, and its protection of the op
pression of Blavery fostered the inspiring
cause, so it has strenuously opposed all legis
lation that tended to reniove.the roots of the
difficulty from our politics, and has sedulously
cnoourageu hatred and contempt of the race
which we have bo cruelly wronged, but whose
equal ligbts have been legally and formally
Despite this malignant hostility, strength
ened, as the movements of incipient rebellion
were, by want of reflection upon the exact
nature of tho Government, the Republican
party has carried all its great measures of re
construction. But the whole policy known
by mat name was necessarily experimental,
and certain of its measures were, in their na
ture, temporary. Disfranchisement was espe
cially one 01 tnese. it was tnought neoessary,

I he most conspicuous Republican who bad
friendly doubts was Governor Andrew, of
Massachusetts. But the loyal country which
bad Maintained tbe Union unquestionably
oemanaea mat poncy, ana it was adopted.
The time has now oome for a change. It is
evidently more desirable that the control of
the States vhich have been fully restored to
tbeir relations in the Union Bhould be in
trusted to all their citizens, and that the most
intelligent class sviuld not be excluded. It
is also desirable that no system which, by
disfranchisement, encourages hostility of
clashes or races, should even seem to be fa-
voied by the National Government, tiuoh
fjt-ttiu is sometimes imperative as a choice of
evils. But in a free State a disfranchised
lass, especially when it is that of the most
nlightenment, is a perpetual nienaoe. There
ci n be no proper peace while it exists. As it
tued to be aid, and to be truly said, of
hit. very, that it was suppressed civil war, so it
niay be as truly said of a political community,
in which a leading part is arbitrarily disfran
chised, that it is smouldering Btrife; from

A general amnesty, the removal of all
disqualifications resulting from the Rebellion,
should be heartily declared as the policy of
tbe Republican party. It was long sinoe de
manded by some of its most eminent leaders.
The New York Tribune, for instance, hs
steadily inMsted upon its wisdom; and there
are many who thought its demand to be pre
mature when it was made who are fully per
suaded that the time is now ripe. The em
phatio declaration of the Republicans of Ohio
shows how profound and bow geueral the
conviction of the wisdom of this meitsure has
become in the party. And it is of great im
portance that it should be the work of the
Republicans, that it may be seeu not to be a
concession to the spirit of tbe Ku-klux by the
party which tbe Ku-klux supports, ami ot
which it is an agency. As the disabilities
were imposed because it was thought that
the publio w el ware required thorn, ho they
may now be removed for the same reason.
For tbe publio welfare imperatively demands
Republicxn ascendancy, and that is in 8ue
degree imperilled by a policy of contiuued
difefranchihement. Tbe conditions of national
pacification cannot be complete until amnesty
is universal, and for every reaoa Hint dual
measure should be the work of the party of
TnE BLACK SEA QUESTION.
From the Government Messenger, St. Petersburg.
For fifteen years Russia has strictly fulfilled
the obligations of the treaty of Paris, oue
rous oh some of them were for her diuity.
Meanwhile political events had made con
siderable changes in the provisions of this
treaty, and in course of time the position of
European powers in their relations towtrd-
each other had become tHBenually molinad.
It was impossible for Russia to snouiit any
longer to the restrictions which had beeu im
posed upon her on the Black Sea, which ba'ue
tbe Russian coasts, alter the international
relations of the other SUtes had become so
remaikably altered. The Imperial Cabinet
notified to Europe by the Imperial Oh.iouci
lor's circular of the lDth of October that i no
longer considered itself bound by the restric
tions relating to tbe Black Sea, and that bis
Majesty the Emperor had resumed his full
sovereign rights npon that sea, leaviog at the
Fame time the other sovereigns free to resume
their rights in their entire extent. Not
withstanding the viohnt and hiriscd declara
tions of many organs of the Lur;pean press,
the great powers which bad signed the treaty
of l'aris did not look upon our circular as a
provocation addressed to Europe, nor as an
indication 01 secret pinna against ner peaoa,
but as a frank and moderate notification; and
they icsolved, at the suggestion of the
Government of the North German Confedera
tion, to assemble in a conference for the
purpose of bringing this notification of Rus
sia into harmony with the Treaty of 18."(.
Our Cabinet gladly accepted the invitation to
take part in this conference, more especially
as in the circular of the l!)th of O itober it
bad already been stated that his Majesty w-n
disposed to conclude any now international
agreement whose object it should be to
strengthen the prospects of universal peace.
While securiDg tbe dignity of Rustia the
labors ot the conierence were greatly im
peded and delayed by the contemporary poll
tical events; but froin the very beginning all
the powers expressed a readiness to
solve the questions in a spirit
of peace and justice. In yesterday's number
of the Gorcrnmtiit Mesneiger a telegram was
printed announcing that a new treaty bad
been signed at the London Conference which
abolishes those articles of tbe Treaty of Paris
that limited the sovereign rights of Russia
and Turkey on tho Black Sea. There can be
no doubt that not only all Russians, but all
friends of peace and justice, will heartily
rejoice at this worn ot European diplomacy
It limits no one's rights, it does not deuiaud
any sacrifices, while it has restored rights
which had been violated, removed a symbol
of international distrust, and strengthened
the intimate relations of the European States.
It is pre-eminently a work of peace and
