GREELEY AND III3 SOUTHERN
From the If. J. Tim.
Although it may be chiefly a matter of per
sonal interest that Mr. Horace Greeley should
hare consented to hold an interview with Jeff.
Davis, immediately after the latter had been
spouting sedition throngh several Soathern
States, there are some other incidents in con
nection with Mr. Greeley's Soathern tour
which, now that he has returned, we hope be
will find, time to explain. It has seemed
strange to many that Mr. Greeley should con
sent to act as chairman of the Tammany Re
publicans, an organization which now serves
nothing but Tammany, and does its works
under ialse pretenses. It seemed still more
strange that as soon as Mr. Greeley turned
bis face southward, the Tribune began to at
tack General Grant, while Mr. Greeley al
lowed his friends to put him in nomination
for the Presidency.
Mr. Greeley's letter to his Kansas friend
was dated May 4, and it gave a coy consent to
the proposition that he should be nominated
for the Presidency. After that came the
Sonthern tour, in the course of which Mr.
Greeley Beems to have aimed at securing the
sympathies, if not the support, of the South
ern people. His consenting to hold a com
plimentary "pow-wow" with Jeff. Davis only
seems to have been a part of the general de
sign. Everywhere Mr. Greeley has been try
ing his fascinating powers on the Southern
people. At New Orleans he said that "had
universal amnesty been adopted five years
ago, there would now be no Ku-klux." At
Galveston he made the following remarks,
which are certainly much opposed to the
general statements of the Tribune, and, as
we believe, to the facta. We qupte from the.
"I believe at this day that not so much violence
occurs in Texas as in New York city, and certainly
there is not nearly so much said about It. With
about an equal population In Texas as in the city of
New York, there are more desperadoes in that city
than In Texas, and it is harder work to manage
Again, we find the following passage from
one of Mr. Greeley's speeches quoted in the
Cincinnati Gazette. That paper very natu
rally says of it: "If this ba the fundamental
principle of government, we of the North
have been fighting against it, and have been
guilty of a crime so monstrous that language
cannot describe it." The following is the
"We have no other doctrine respecting secession
than that embodied in the preamble to oar fathers'
Declaration of Independence, namely, that 'Govern
ments derive their just powers from the consent of
the governed,' which consent t he governed have
the right to withdraw. Oar fathers felt themselves
Justified in seceding irom ana amaing tne annua
Empire on this ground, renouncing their allegiance
to the crown, whereof they had been born subjects,
and whereto they had sworn fidelity. Having been
educated to believe them right in their revolt we
shall not willingly detile their graves at this late
Even these sentiments, and the construc
tion put upon them, are not so strong in Mr.
Greeley's mouth as the following extract from
another of his speeches, reported in the
Yioksburg Herald of June 2:
'I greet you here," said Mr. Greeley, "as citizens
Who will in time feel honor in the glory of Stone
wall Jackson as well as those who were in the op
posing armies (cheers), who will g'ory alike In the
glory of K. E. Lee as well as those who fought
against him. He felt that the clouds that now
hover ovet the country would soon be swept away,
and vanish in the grand, growing, and rising re
public which will one day embrace all the countries
and all the people of this North American conti
nent." If this is not carrying magnanimity a little
too far, we may as well admit at onoe that we
have wronged the South by resisting it at all,
and offer it fall compensation for its injuries.
The above quotations may all be suscepti
ble of explanation, but as they stand they
will not increase the estimation in which 1 Mr.
Greeley is held, in this part of the country at
least. With Jeff Davis going about the South
talking of reviving the lost cause, at the head
of triumphal processions, and bands of musio
playing the "Bonnie Blue Flag," it is unfortu
nate that Mr. Greeley should have taken it
into bis head to hob-nob with the traitor, and
talk about the North "glorying in the glory"
of Lee and Jackson..
All this happens, too, at a time when Mr.
Greeley allows himself to be put forward as a
candidate for the Presidency; when he is
chairman of a local committee which is en
gaged in doing all that it possibly can to dis
credit a Republican administration; and when
Tammany recognizes the importance of the
alliance by niacins the Iribune on the list of
papers for receiving the corporation adver
tisements, which now are never given except
as a reward for past services, or out of "grati
tude for favors to come,
A LESSON FROM A GOVERNESS.
From the If. T. World.
One incident in the drama of the Tioh-
borne baronetcy case, which is now filling
the Englibh papers, deserves the particular
attention of our friends Miss Anthony and
Mrs. Julia Ward Howe-both friends, we
hope, of ours, though foes, we are sorry to
see, one to another. During the third day
of the trial the Solicitor-General seems to
have become irritated by the cumulative
force of the evidence arrayed against him by
the counsel of the claimant. One witness
after another came to the stand testifying;
unanimously that if the claimant was not Sir
Roeer Tichborne he was "the devil himself."
When a lady, a governess formerly in the Tioh-
borne family, followed in the same strain, the
angiy Solicitor-General attempted to vent
upon her his heaped-up wrath. He snubbed
and insulted her till tne court interfered to
protect her. but when be asked her a ques
tion as to the way in which young Mr. Tioh-
borne bad behaved towards ladies, the victim
of his impertinence gave him back better
than he had brought. "Was tne young man
polite towards ladies ? asked the Solicitor
General. 4 'He was, indeed, very polite to
wards ladies," replied the governess; and with
a maiKcu iimeouon oi me voice tue auaea,
'gentlemen, i believe, always are so.
It was a palpable hit. The oourt-roonj,
stolidly English though it was. burst into a
laugh, and the Solicitor-General turned red
in the face under his white wig. As a lesson
to lawyers tne gallantry or thu little cover
ness deserves well of witnesses in all conn
tries. But when one considers how vulgar
and snobblbn the treatment oi governesses in
particular is in most English families, and
what a burden of dull arroganoe and inso
lence educated women condemned to thW
occupation women for the most part
gently born and alwajs gently bred hav to
bear in nine out of ten nouses of the Eng.
lish ''upper classes," we submit that our f
male reformers ought to recognize and re
ward this particular heroine who dared t
have a soul of her own and to stand up foe-
it, even in the presence of the periwigged
majesty of a British court of justioe. i'h
matter is not so wholly foreign, to our on a
business and bosoms as it may at first appear h
to be. Thanks to the community 01 tongues,
we read English novels as freely in America
as they are-read in England, and there oan be
no donbt that the pictures of life painted in
these novels have a positive effect upon con
siderable numbers of people in America. For
the most part this effect is bad. The sort of
persons who dawdle or drive, as the case may
be, through the majority of English fash
ionable novels are carioatured speoimens of
a kind of society which is itself a caricature.
With the exception of Mr. Disraeli,
in "Lothair," no English writer
has had the eyes to see
or the courage to depict the utter
emptiness, the grotesque, more than Chinese
self-sufficiency, and tne solemn stupidity of
aristocratic life in England in the nineteenth
century. The average English novelist,
finding in the noble mansions, the high
sounding titles echoes of a once illustrious
past the paradisaical parks, the glittering
households of the English aristocracy, ad
mirable scenio effects and excellent accesso
ries for dramatic work, has only to be at the
pains of inventing heroes and heroines to
move amid these enchanting circumstances.
This he gladly does. He clothes the necks of
his young peers with thunder, like the war
horse in Job, and invests his damsels with
fawnlike grace, with dovelike innocence, or
with the deadly fascination of the leopardess,
as his case may require.
Around these ideal beings set in real
scenes he pours an atmosphere of flunkyism
and frivolity, and the result is a novel per
fectly fitted to make fools of all such inexpe
rienced readers as it finds not fools already.
In nothing are these novels more detestable
than in the conceptions taken for granted by
their authors of the relations which should
exist between the rich and great on one side
and the dependents of the rich and great on
the other side. We have no peerage in Ame
rica, and the vulgarizing influence of a
peerage upon sooiety is not likely to be felt
among us, even by reflection, to any consid
erable degree in the intercourse of people
who meet each other simply a3 strangers or
acquaintances in the world. There are, we
believe, vague fortbputtings of
this influence sometimes observ
able in the weighty matter of precedence
at Washington dinner-tables. But as
Washington dinner-tables are here to-day, and
to-morrow are removed to the auction-mart or
exported to Peoria, and as the discussion of
precedence at Washington dinner-tables is
pretty sure always to end only in making the
silly people who engage in it hate and avoid
each other ever after, no great harm can come
of it. But it is otherwise with, the relations of
employer and employed. These exist in all
countries. Wherever the native instincts
and traditional habits of American life as
it was colored by the practice of our edu
cated classes in times past still prevail
nothing can be more wholesome, honorable,
or admirable than the American way of treat
ing these relations. It is- for their delete
rious effect upon these relations chiefly that
the English novels of which we speak are to
be deprecated. They paint an order of ideas
not much longer to be endured even in Great
Britain; an order of ideas utterly odious and
intolerable in America. Wherefore it were
well, we repeat, that the women who seek to
reform American society should not lose- sight
of this valiant little Tichborne governess,
who so steadily refused to be "put down"
even by so awful a personage as the bolicitor
General of England. Indeed, the whole
Tichborne case is worth dissemination were
it only as an antidote to the false and silly
notions of aristocratic life engendered
by the fashionable story-tellers ; of
Great Britain. JN either Mrs. liore nor
Mrs. Wood, neither Wilkie Collins nor
the author of "Guy Livingstone," ever
concocted a more interesting and dramatio
tale than the true history of the Tiohborne
baronetcy. It has all the elements and ac
cessories. There is an anoient family, of
blood so blue that in comparison with it the
descendants of the tradesman who founded
the ducal house of Cavendish and of; the.
apothecary who rescued the more than
ducal name of Percy from extinction are
the veriest "cads." There is an ancestral
mansion full of legends and of pictures.
There is a magnificent property, and a
title which, if not brilliant, is at least a title.
There are circumstances throbbing with
romance and mystery. And yet, when we
get at the personages involved in all this fine
clamour of things, we find tnem to be anil,
coarse, illiterate. They appear through the
splendor and charm of the drama like a
stage-carpenter suddenly caugnt in ins snirt
sleeves in the midst of a splendid "transfor
mation Bcene commonplace and bewildered
among the spangled heavens and the seining
nymphs, the purple waters and the rose-pink
grottoes 01 tne tairy world, ine upnoistery
is faultless. The characters provoke one to
remember Goldsmith's cruel description of a
Dutch house that it was a palaoo built for a
THE LOST BOURBON.
From Ike S. T. Tribune.
When the Count of Chambord published
his manifesto assuring distracted Frenchmen
that they would never find happiness and
prosperity until they secured the country
atrainst the evils or "nap-nazara govern
ments" by re-establishing a monarohy here
ditary in the Bourbon line, ne little imagined
what trouble be was drawing down upon nis
own bead, and how promptly the spectre
of a possible crown was to be grasped by
a new fleah-and-blood pretender. We know
that in royal houses the birth of an august
baby must be attested by a great many more
formalities than are commonly dseined
convenient in the families of ordinary
people; and the Bourbon princes at
least must be convinced that the death of a
king ought also to be proved with equally
extraordinary precautions, xr tne young
son of Louis XYI had been a sim

very funny production it is. The style is sng

volume, of "nistorisal Memoirs of Louis

were fnlly explained; and' though the book
was generally laughed at, some parsons
thought it worthy of elaborate rBfutation.
His father, a musician by occupation and
French by birth, was the originator cf'the
imposture. He represented himself to be

Antoinette, rescued from the Teinp'.a by

The recent action of the Democratio Con
vention of Ohio by whioh, after a vote of
3C5 to 139, the Democrats of that State say:
"We recognize as accomplished facts the
three amendments to the Constitution, re
cently declared adopted, and consider the
same no longer political, issues before the
country" this declaration,, coming from a
source from which we might reasonably have
apprenended the contrary, is a moral gain to
the whole nation, and ought to be accepted
thankfully by men of all parties.
e have no sympathy with the disposition
manifested by those Republicans who want
to see the Democrats as much in the wrong
and as little in the right as possible. On the
contrary, tne nearer right both parties are,
the better for the common country. So far
as this journal has had a voice to which
Democrats have been willing to aooord a
respectful hearing, we have, urgently
seconded the efforts of those Democratio
leaders who have been trying to rescue their
party from the control of Frank Blair and his
co-revolutionists. We have always wanted to
see the Democracy pledged to maintain,
rather than to subvert, the issues Bettled by
the war. We appeal to all thoughtful Repub
licans whether it is not better that Mr. Val
landigham and bis friend3 should declare the
fourteenth and fifteenth amendments accom
plished facts, than deny their validity and
demand their obliteration.
The Ohio platform, at least so far as it
relates to these amendments, will probably
be the Democratio platform for the next
Presidential campaign. It is a wise act on
the pert of our opponents to.refraia from
attempting to turn back the sun upon the
dial. A political party that does not keep-
step with the march of the age perishes like a
caravan lost in the sand. The Demooratio
party does not want to die. Bat the fact that
the backward-looking Demoorats of Ohio
were a minority of one-third shows that this
ancient party still has a powerful element
within it which is attempting its destruction.
Moreover, Mr. Jefferson Davis and other
leaders of the lost cause, as if bent on a
second suioide, openly say that they "refuse
to accept the situation; and we believe that
Mr. Davis represents in himself very fairly
the sentiments of about one-third of the
Democratio party of the Unitod States
Nevertheless the fact that Mr. Vallandigham
in his own party can inaugurate a political
rebellion against its rebel ohief, and that the
new flag waves over two-thirds of the rank
and file, is cheering to our spirits, for it
shows that the Demooratio party dares no
longer to lift its official hand to strike the
The sincerity of these Ohio politicians is
not a subject into which we care olosely to
inqnue. ureat parties are generally more
politic than sincere. We understand full well
the animus of the late ''new departure." The
Demoorats want to win the next Presidential
election, if they can. They know that they
cannot, if they attempt to undo the constitu
tional amendments. They therefore pro
dently agree to respect what they would more
willingly destroy. Such reasoning as this is
what undoubtedly moved many of Mr. Val
landigbam's followers perhaps also Mr. Val-
landignnm nimseir. un such reasoning is.
aftei all, the best kind of logic, for it is the
iodic ot events.
The question now arises. Since the Demo
cratio party pledges itself to abide by the
constitutional amendments, and since it
wants universal amnesty, what can individual
Democrats do by which they may better carry
out these wishes than to co-operate with those
Republicans who propose to deny to the
present administration a second term, and to
succeed President Grant with some such man
as Horace Greeley ? All the more important
issues tor wmca tne younger spirits of the
Democratio paity now contend, are faithfully
represented by Mr. Ureeley. why not there
fore let the better class of Democrats unite
with the anti-Grant Republicans, and get
ready betimes to nominate Mr. Greeley in
