All that we have to -a or the peo
ple demand of the Legislature which
meets iu?xt Monday, is that the mem
bers will proceed with business with
out tear or favor; daring to make such
changes) in the- law as are necessary,
and leaving on the statute book what
the public good requires. A step ti
wartls enfranchisement is indispensa
ble and should be prompt. We hope
the Senatorial election will not eon
Hume more than a day. That super
JJuou oflloeH will tar abolished, and
fn- and salaries so altered and regula
ted ao that it shall be impossible for
officers to steal, in a legal and honest
way, more than half a twenty thous
and dollar loaf in one year; that the
-y-tem of taxation will lie wbollv
changed and equalised, and, if post:!
ble, reduced ; that all unjust debts
will be declared void, and Just ones
recognized and provided for by exten
sion of time sufficient to make ii pas
sihle to pay and yet live and prosper
that the enormous penalties put du
delinquent tax payers will be remitted
on payment within a reasonably lim
ited time; that the system of regis
tration will be annulled at ouce, and
the suleiidisiug of the free press by the
appoiutmonl of official journals with
out the opiortunity for competition a
to price. Adapting the Code of Ten
mwsee to the changed condition as to
slavery, wc don't see how to do better
to begin with.
Wk have now two ex -Presidents In
Um fMd, neither of whom were elect
ed by tile eople. Millard Fill

To Mr. ETitF.r.iiKiE's -Rpeech at
Nashville, which appears in our col
umns to-day, we ee no special reason
to take exception. It is fair to infer
from it that be will lie governed in
his legislative action by what may be
for the good of Tennessee, rather than
by any whims of lancy as to the suf
frage, to which some of his professed
friends have made an effort to pledge
him. When circumstances cannot be
made to suit the iaw, the law must be
changed to suit them ; for there must
le but one " old fogy " rule in legisla
tion, and that is the attainment ot the
greatest good consistent with justice to
all. The late tinkering with the Con
stitution lias been all mischievou
boteh work. What is to be seen now,
is whether we are to have more patch
ing, or steps taken in a statesmanlike
manner to adapt the law to the
changed conditiou of things, and that
in conformity to vital principles which
mu-t live forever. When Mr. Eth
ElilDGK tefls us that past Issues have
become obsolete, he is right in ad
vising to leave them as " by-gones."
But in .savinir that "old fogy ideas are
OCT. 2, 1869. dead " he would do well to deflnr-
what he means by old fogy ideas, in
asmuch, as he has a like interest with
a majority of hj fellow-citizens in pre
serving that respect which has hith
erto been entertained for the opinions
of sires, some think equal to their
sons. Whether mind has much ad
vanced from Solomon's time to Eth
fcmix. !.'- may be doubted, as well as
whether Voiinjf America, born of the
war with an "oid lu?ad on young
shoulders," is wiser than other pio-ph,
Wk reloioe n. tho information, which
we hope w true, that the Tenese
islalure, which Is to meet lies I Monday,
will refuse to ratify the Fifteenth Amend
ment. Wo do not douh: that Congress
willhDdor make a pretext for otUcially
d'-bluHnir the amendment to have beeu
ratified Uy tjje rejjuisite number of States
and to Is? a parr jf I he Constitution, but
such a declaration, it abstained by fact
and law, will not, ve tiust, be Hjlow-ed to
-land for a single day if the Irion Js of the
Constitution shall hare the constitutional
iower to annul it. The ainemlment has
not been ratified by Indiana, although
the unprincipled Radical leaders of that
State assert that it has been; and, if it
Hhaj s? nominally ratified by Virginia,
Mississippi and Texas, the thing will ls
done under the Is&tMkM of duress and
for that reason will lie to all intents void.
Let the Democracy, wherever they have
the power, as they certainly have in Ten
nessee, sea to If "'at the amendment is
not legally or ibgjtjmately ratified, and
we uihv confidently trust ijjst the wrongs
perpetrated by the party now unfortu
nately dominant w ill in good tjine be yor
recteU. A surely as the Republic shall
live, that good lime wtH comc.
Because we want peace, one of the
strongest reasons why we nhould be
anxious that the Fifteenth Amend
ment might not so much as appear to
prevail ami be carried by frauds and
force is to be found in the fact, above
so distinctly announced by the Louis
ville Ootarian Jbunmf that the amend
ment will not be" allowed to stand for
a single day after the friends of the
Constitution shall have the constitu
tional power to amend it." If passed
it will le a wrong from which there
can be no rest from agitation until it is
reiiealed. We are glad to learn from
all our sources of information that the
view of the Journal as to what our
Legislature will do is correct. The
negro suffrage question pure and sim
ple, on iti own dmerits, will be a
su!Ject lor the Convention yet to be
called. What is not good for the na
tion is not good for the State. De
mocracy with negro suffrage is De
mocracy run mad, and " run in the
ground." The most important of all
restrictions on Republican institutions
are tho- which nre designed to ex
clude the ignorant and vicious from
controlling public affairs.
The Chicago Jtembtican utters a
piteous lament at the character of do

The coming servant who is to sujmt-

and numerous other negative virtues, we

The following shocking accident
occurred last week about forty miles
south of Pittsburg, by which a young
lady, the wile of a Mr. Derango
Wilgch, lost her life:
It appears that Mrs. Wilgus had occa

near the tumbling shaft, w hich connects
that we are now in a transition state;
and all such periods in the history oi
a commonwealth are fruitful in two
classes of public men whose counsel
we should heed with the utmost cau

vably fixed in their attachment to the
past, to those old Ideas and institu
tions which a progressive age has out
grown, and also to those who forget,
or who never know that all progress
is not practical reform. True wisdom
and duty require us to recognize the
actual changes of the last few years.
These changes with us have been wide
spread and thorough, particularly in
social and political life. All great
changes are necessarily attended with
more or less laceration. Lament as
we will, our repinings cannot change
the results, but our cheerful accept
ance of the inevitable will do much
to tit us lor the actual duties of the
It was Bolingbroke, I believe, who
said that " every nation must jierpetu

Had he lived until now he might have
indulged in a wider generalization. I
think that the greflMMst error of an
cient or modern scholarship is to be
found in futile efforts to bind posteri
ty by legislation, by compacts
anil constitutions. All experience
has demonstrated the utter im
possibility of such a thing,
