The Lesson or History.
IaiKhty ono years havo passed alnco tlio
formation of tlio Constitution. In thin period
wo havo had twentyono elections of Presi
dent, Including three p,rcat contusta In whlrh
Vital principles havo been Involved, and
questions of tho hliht moment decided. It
Is to tho lemon of thcso contests, and to the
uniform naturo of tho decision In all thrco
of them, that wo ak tho atteution of our
In tho first contest tho victorious causo
, was represented by Thomas Jui'fkiikdn.
J Ills triumph was tho success of Democracy,
IJo was tho apostlo of equal rights for all
citizens. In his political philosophy, dlstliio
Hons of cute, color, and nationality wcro to
' Jeclod. Ho regarded manhood, Intelligence,
, nnd morality as tho only proper qualifications

llavery and loved freedom ; but moro than
' that, ho was fully np to tho most ndvnncod
thinkers of tho present day In IiIb views
respecting universal BulTrnRn. That he wai
uIbo In advanco of most of Ids own follower!)
cannot Ut questioned ; hut under his lead tho
hattla between aristocratic prlvlleo and
democratic equality was fought with unsur
passed energy and bitterness. Tho chiof In.
lurcst of tho conflict, as seen from our own
I time, lies In tho fact that tho victory was won
by tho ltudlcal party and by Itadical Ideas.
galu, from lH2l to 163U, thu country was
divided upon questions reaching down to thu
very foundation of tho political structure.
The leader of tho popular arty In that great
conflict was AM'HIW Jackhok. Iu cliarac
tr It was similar to tho btnigglo between
tho llopubllcims and TederallstB a quarter of
, a century before. It was derided, as that
? had been, In favor of lladlcnllsm. '
I, Thu Usuu of our own day la essentially of
, tho eomo kind. It Is lxitwoen arintoerscy
and deinocrncy, between privileges for tho
i few and equal rights fur nil. At tho begin-
;, nlng It was letwoen slavery on tho ono
" band demanding tho right of free oxjninBlon
I; In all tha territories of thn Ilepuhlic, mid freo
labor resisting tho demand. This conflict
i culminated in the war and In the abolition of
'! llavery. After tho war It was taken up
j tgaln by tlio conquered party, who, drlveu by
: thu samu spirit of insanity which hud con-
j trolled them from tho first, refuu d tho terms
offered by Congrefs, and forced tho ImiHjsI
tion of meai-ureH more in necordanco with
radical democratic f.:''ielplfl. Thn reeon
etructlon of tho rebel States having thu
been mndo Impracllcnblo except on tho dem
pcratio basis of uinvuisal suffrage, that
qnettion hua now been heiird and finally do
termlnod by tlw poople uf tho United States.
A moro Bolcmn or a moro ilocisivo judgment
was nuver ronderod. Onco moro Itadical
' Ideas havo received tho support of tho inn.
orlty. Univcrtal sutlVago Is henceforth tho
CBtaUUhed and irruversiblo law of the re
constructed States, and will giaduully bo
corao tho law in all tho ,tbers.
, Thus we fee that In Ameilcan i)lit'uB it is
l Radicalism that always triumphs. Constrvn-
live and retrogrado ideas may komoiimcHgaln
a temporary succe, but It Is illusive) and
evanescent. This is tho lew-on which,
whether they like it or not, philosophers and
' politicians would do well to tako to heart,
j end to koep uver liefori them as tho guldo
Loth of their thinking and their action.

Already wo sec tho beginning of this dl'
cusslon, nnd sponk now only to enter onr
earnest protest against It.
(Jen. OitANThns rnjnyed a military rank
that has no precedent In tho hlstnry of (ho
country. It was conferred upon him by the
spontaneous movement of tho pooplo. His
sonlccs were w'thout parallel, and It was
fitting that they should bo corresprmdlngly
rccognlicd. Jlut It was never Intended that
this exalted rank should becomo n jiennanent
feature of our regular military establishment.
It has alwnys been understood that the grade
of (leneral should end with Quant's tenure of
tho commission. It Is now tmneccssiry to
chango this purpose. Qen, fcfiir.iiHA.v will
lie qulto as competent to direct the operations
of tho army with his present rank, as If ho
wcro promoted (leneral or Field Marshal.
And when, by any unfortunato occurrence
long may such nn event lio delnycd 1 tho
placoof Kltr.HMAV becomes vacant, It will
lo equally needless that any new promotion
should bo made to thn grndo of I.lcutcnnlit
Gcncrnl. Pot fifty years or more tho country
was well defended nnd projered without a
military ofilcor of higher degrco than a
Major-General. During most of tho war wo
had no higher rank than that, although we
kept n million of men In thn field and fought
ns human lwlngs scarcely ever fought
We yield to no ono In aficctlonslc gratl
tude toward the men who led us through the
dangers nnd difhVultiia of tho war. n
know them nnd pay nil honor to their skill,
their courage, their manly telf devotion, their
faithful patriotism. Wo have Mian them at
their grent work, saving with their swords
their country and ours. It Is linpossildo to
think of (litANr, KiiKtaiAN, Thomas, Snnit
DAN, nnd thousands of others, ns we ham
lioheld them again nnd ngnln, amid thu fiery
hail and dreadful conflict of battle, without
a thrill of enthusiasm for tholr great quail
tits of head and heart, and for the noblo deeds
Hut whilo all this Is true, nnd Is felt
to bo so by all classes of tho poo
pic, it is time to prepare for a reduction of
tho army establishment. Tho pressure of
tnxatlon which weighs so heavily upon tho
industry nnd roniiuercn of tho nation must
bollghteniil. The astonishing military jwiwcr
which thol'niled Stated dvelocd In thu war
I was duo not only to the mural character of the
population, but also to tho wealth accumula
ted from tho prolonged abscuco of taxes. A
stent and persistent cll'ort must now bo mado
to regain that fnrtunatu condition. Kvery
public uxpendituru iniiBt bo reduced to tho
limits of absolute necessity. No addition to
tho charges mon tho taxpayers must bo
tolerated without tho most linprrativo rea
son. Thcso are principles of tho (list Impor
tance. Wo trust they will bo rcBpectod by
Congress, nnd that tho disposition to rod toe
tho army as rapidly ns possible, which hss
heretofuru been manifested by that b dy, will
bo preserved and confirmed.
It has b'en roundly astrted In various
quarters that a heavy lllcgnl voto whs polled
In this city on Tuesday, sonio persons put
ting It as high as 2.1,000. Ofthu truth of this
wo havo no legul uvoluucu ; but that theru
wcro gravo Irregularities In tho vote, there
can bo no question, leaving repvuters and
unqualified voters out of thu account, wo
think it will bo manifest, by n reference to a
tablo which wo print In another column, that
the Mlvt lozct wrc ttufful, but In whoso in
terest wo will not now venture to determine.
A comparison of tho total voto on Presi
dent and (lovornnr in twenty-two districts of
tho city shows that no less than 1,030 ballots
wcro counted for tho first ticket, and 1,1111
for tho second, In thcso districts, lit excess of
tho number of voters registered. This result
vitiates tho en lira vote of those districts, and
would justify tho Stato canvassers lu throw,
lug it out. Huclt a statu of fuels shows
pretty clearly that an honest poll was not
had. If tho bungling ballot-box stullurii in
certain districts overstoppod tho registry
numlsTH, what nmurnnco havo wo that the
praitlco was not moro generally adopted,
although with greater cnutluti ?
Thn Necrrt Cireulnr.
Mr. Sami hi, J. Tu.nns, wo aro glad to
see, denies all knowledge of tho secret circu
lar purporting to hnvo been Issued by the
New Vorl: Democratic Stato Committee, of
which ho Is Clialnnnn, for tho purpc.HO of
obtaining tho estimated results of Tuesday's
election In tho Interior of tho Stato at tho
earliest possible moment after tho closing of
tho polls nud boforo tho ballots were counted,
lio does not, however, deny that such a cir
cular was Issued by the Committee, nor havo
tho other members of the Cnmmlttco denied
having used it with Mr. Tii.dkn'h iiama
alllxod, precisely In the form in which It has
Wen published. We therefore feel justified In
calling upon them, as wo called upon Mr.
Til.tiHN, for nn explanation or u denial of
tho conduct attributed to them.
It will bo remembered that tho nllegul cir
cular stated ns the reason for asking for the
desired information, "Thuro Is, of course.au
I important object to bo attained." Tho quo.
tion is Inovltnbly uipgrsted, What object!

terior of tho Btnto, In season to so manipu

This Interpretation of its language received
decided confirmation from tho conduct of boiiio
of the Democratic ennva: srs In tho city on
Tuesday evening. The counting of the ballots
for Presidential Electors and for Governor
was delayed In several wards till a latu hour
of tho night, nnd although It Is to Iw hoped
that no frauds were actually committed,
abundant opportunity was afforded for thcia.
In commontlng yesterday upon the circu
lar, wo called ujcu Mr Th.dkn to disavow It
as a forgery, or as an unauthorized uso of his
nnme, or elso to explain its meaning In such
a manner as to make lusslgnluglt consistent
with his honor as a citizen and a gentleman.
Wo said that If he could not do this, he and
the rest of the Committee would havo no
right to ropel any charges which should bo
mado against their honesty. Mr. Tll.m:s,
for himself, has disavowed it. What say tho
othsr members of tho Cnmmlttco 1 In vlow of
tho suspicious bchitvlorof the city canvarws
nbnvn referred to, wo repent onr view of thn
matter, nnd call upon them for a disa

The authorship of tho famous lyric, "Tear

furnished to tho Triluiu by himself. On the
oilier hand, thcio la s general belief in the public
mind that it wns tho production of the late (len.
Ciuniss (1. It ALriss, who, nltliough ho some,
tlmea playfully denied it, on other occasiona
f I i-ily admitted that it una his. There i. aba
more Kiiita Uetitnony that he so regarded it.
Ilia Included iu u wiluiiie of cisay., povtns,
apecrlies, and other miaecllaiieoui writings, which
he published in 18!l, under I ho lilto of " Haked
Meats of tlie 1'iinerul." In this folunie there aro
rlstrcn pages, bearing the title of "Honest Truth
about tliu l-'launting I.le." Tho er.t it gitrrn in
full, Willi its original title of "Hall to the Htars
nnd Htiipes," along with three otheraof a shnlhir
character, with a history of their first publication
in the 7Wfcne, ehielly Intended, It would seem,
lo lelieve Nr. (lastlsr of tho uccutntliiii Hut ho
had reviled tlio Hag. It la tobo noticed, however,
that there is only one of tho four poems, and that
not the ono In question, of which Hen. IIai.iisb
positiiely eaya that ho ia the author; thu claim
to the authorship rf tlie others, Including the
" flaunting I.te," it not put forth with decision,
but la slin pi) Implied.
In this uncertainty we bare consulted a llio nf
the Tribvitt for l&al. It reveals the bet Hut
tho three pneMl which undoubtedly belong lu
(len. lUi.i'!it ncro originally published, not
with llio tillca given llicm lu hU volume, but
us "Tocsin IVat" .No. I., 11., nnd III. They all
related lu tho surrender of Anthony Huron liilo
slavery, and wetu printed in that journal be
tween (he 1st nnd the 8th of June, without any
aignatuiu or date. The " Flaunting I.le" did nut
appear until the Will of June) Its title Imlicnten
mi niUtlon to (leu. Halplne'a series of poems,
although tt was upon the sanio itiljcct. Attached
tn It lathe dale, "HruuMin, b. I., Juno 3, issi."
Thnt data was una thut (len. lUt-riss would not
hate employed, as ho did not liv u lu lliooklyn,
and had no leasou for dating ono poem mnto
than another. This date la ouiilted iu his vol.
unie, and several lines of the piece nro changed,
notalnuya fur tho better. We should udd Hut
other poems of h kindred tel. or were published in
the Trillin about tho sjiiio time ; Hut they were
ull dated at llmoklyn, nnd that Mr. Hot'nNS now
lufurini us, and no doubt with pel feet truth, Hut
ho was their author.
On the whole, we are of opinion that the
" t'lauiillug Lie" waa wiitteu by Mr. Ilocnsp, and
not hy (len. llitrisr.; but that from the fact th it
tlio latter wiotc thrco other pieces not unlike it in
spirit, this piece was crioneously attributed tn
him in tho Tribuni cflico nnd that with Ida huh
Its of rapid and often careless willing, ho renlly
did not know but he might have been its author,
nnd at last became convinced Hint he was. It is
a very curious case, but tho weight of tho evi
dence ia altogether in Tutor of Mr. lioeusr.
With tho election of (len. Quint wo hopo
that wa ahull enter upon a new era lu politic,
and that the pas.lons of tlie war, which have of
lute been relived with such unfortunato rnsnlln
lu tliu lleinucmtle parlr, will once more ha laid
to sleep and forever. Cerlulnly no Southerner who
has Ids lit o wits run suppose. Hut tlio nun who un
corded audi wise and magnanimous terms te I
at Appomattox, will now ho led Into any extrava
gant or ungenerous action toward those whom he
then tieuted with euch forbearance, lie is to be
trusted now, as ho was trusted then, and the
Southern people will do well to visit with their
dUplcasuro tho wild and tiirioua advoentea ol llio
Lost Cause, who, by proclaiming tho contrary,
huteogain led them Into defeat uud disappoint
ment. No good can como nf following any fur
ther their pripo.tcroua counsels. What tho
Month needs la not reviling and passion, but ro
sped for the authority of the Uuvernment, sub
mission to the law, indttstiy, end pmctlcal com
inoti sense. The worst enemies of thu Souih to
dny tie such misguided men as expend their
stiength In useless Itnprecutious upon tho North
ern Itadlculs, liko tho following, which we copy
from a Southern Journal :
"Klersal lorlutftrarx their horn.

This sort uf fully said fustian had now better be
laid aside, and we do not doubt that the mass of
Southern men will agree with us In this opinion.
The soldier of tho past can best servo Ida country
