Tho election in Rhode I*land yesterday res ulted

Legislature i* of the aame political complexion.
Messrs. Sbeffield nnd lirown aro elected to Con

?lt seem* odd that *o important a resignation

i I'r.-Slaverv BohoOba aa inexciiaal.le and wicked:
for we are asaured through a hundred cbannels
that a majority of the People in nearly or quite
even State l.ut South ( arolina are of that faith.
; The -iuiple fact that tho .lelT. Davis oligarchy
| dare uot Bulmiit theii Confederate Conatitution
to a popular ordeal provea thi* heyond eavil.
That Conat:tut.on ia not eaaentiallv a had one; in
somo poiut*, it ia an iinproveinent on the Fed

! if not the only reaaon why 18-88 would be ca*t
| agninst it ia, that the people condciun tho Se
1 cersion movemei.t, and in their h.iirta yearn to
j ward the good oid I'nion of then fathera. Yet
I even in South Curolina tho Coufederate Con.ti
; Itition is uot luhiuitted to tho People for ratifi
. earion. Can there be a doubt as to the reason ?
But a I'nion party of .heep will an.wer no
purpoae; and If there is no party on the (Julf
that dare Bpeak out fi>r the I'nion and will not
j ahoulder aru.B in ita defense, there might as well
. l>e none at all. If ttie " Precipitntors" can aw<?
i to silence all Southern voieea but ti.eir own, we
, u ay as well regard them henceforth as to all in

Meaara. Unioni.t* of the South! this is your

igu.-iiiniouely Hf8?ad from tho (iulf States, it

tout to be tliwtTted by the scbeinea of little
j.iutoa of juatly displaced ofilvobolders. Were

' ceeded through adveise blunders and divisioni,

Millions up to ti?< hour?before deciding to liglit
her in again.
We believe tbe now Administration bas done
| right ln hesitating, pauaing, conaidering, taking
account of stoek, before ruahing upon the for
midable batteri.-s that aurround lort Sumter.
We believe it w as right to exhaust ull reasonable
chancoB of a ]acific adution before giving the
order wbich, however iuiperatiT., must in
augurate civil war. We believe it well that our
Gorernmeut abould atand compicuouily apart
from thoM " vvhoso feet make hante to abod

dare venture to sea, and where in port without
defense.she would be cut out or deitroyed. Tho
vait unprotected coast would be ravaged by par?
ties landing wherever they thought proper, who
would burn, destroy, and earry off property of
every description, uegroe* eapecially. The South
would be utterly hejpless to prevent these raida.
Privateering against Northeru Bhipping would ba
the laat outrage needed to wake up the Northern
liou from hia present attitude of reposo. A
thousand John Hrowns would start up into a ter

There wai great excitemeut iu the city officaa
jesterday a'teruoon, in con*equeuco of the arreat
and imprisonment of Mr. George Mounrjoy for
refusing to aniwer a question put to him hy Uw
Grand Jury of the Oyer and Terminer. Tho
riirnor* that Mountjoy haa or has had in h.s cua
tody a large surn of money, paid as a bribe for
the coofirmation of the atreet-cl.aning coutract,
doubtless led to the atten.pt.d examiuatiou. But
| tho Grand Jury were atopped at the outaet by
tho flat refusal of tbe witnvs* to anavser. The
loreman of the jury then applied to the Judge,
who told Mountjoy that he must auawer, and di
re, ted the foreman (James G. Kmg) to repcat
the queation, wbich was: "From whom, if any
'? one, during the la?t three year.', mmVt Jttt re
?? .-eived money for the purpose of iufltiencing ao
?' tion upon matters peuding before the Commoo
i " Council I" Mr. Mouutjoy again refu.ed to
an.wer, and waa forthwith comuir.ted to priioa.
The reaion given for tbe refusal was that to>
answer would degrade him in the eyei of tho
community. The law applicable to the ca?e im
jxmm's thirty days' imprisonment or $__0 fine.
This is the lirst direct attompt in a legal form
to reneh the ayetem of bribery which is generally
iM-lieved to prevail in the (.'ity Hall, and the re._lt
cannot but confinn the public in the opinion that
even tbe wor*t atoriea are true. Mouutjoy could
not refuse on hia own account; for the law ex
presaly prov.de* that testioiony before a f.rand
Jury ahall not be uaed to the pr.judice of a wit*
nra*. Hejifl a victim?appareutlv, a willing ona
I ? to ihield other*. A* Grand Junei are lunited,
j by practice if not by law, to inqiiries t.nding
' directly to pro-ecutioni, we can hardly expect
that thi* atumpt to unvail the aecreta of tba
I Kmg wUI aucceed; but if the right tort of 8
i Committeo shall be uppointed uuder tLe reawlu
I tion of the State Scuate, there will bo rerela
' tiona in their report that will a*tound the peo
' ple. And, by the way, if the present Jury can
! nol do better, let them put oue of their owa
| number ou the staud; fo: if rumor is ao well
: aimed in the caae of the street-cleaning coutract,
perhaps it is not so very wide of tUe uiark ia
