TUB KU-KLUX BILL.
We print to-day a full abstract of the
bill to enforce the fourteenth amendment,
setting forth clearly all its provisions. Wo
congratulate the country upon this mag
uificont addition to tho securities of the
citizen. We thank Congress for its pa
tience and tenacity and thoroughness with
which it has performed its work. We
thank the President for the deep personal
interest that he has manifested in the adop
tion of precautionary measures against a
new rebellion. We send our congratula
tions to the hunted and perilled thousands
of our loyal friends in the barbarous dis
tricts of the South. They can now appeal
with confidence for national protection.
The way is open everywhere to the courts
of the nation.
Good men of all parties will rejoice
when they examine this bill without pre
judice and find its penal provision pointed
only against the cruol and the wicked.
That its guarantees of protection cover
every innocent man whoso life, liberty
property or peace of miud is in jeopardy
from threats or open violence. It is a
great advance towards a true national life.
It will stimulate the growth of loyal senti
ments and attach the Southern people to
the government more firmly than any mis-
Cilled measures of pacification.
We wish we could chronicle along with j
ita bill to repress gerrymandering. That
Will come next, wo trust. We aro making
steady progress towards national unity.
But we cau never attain it fully till we
have a national system of education which I
puts every child in the schools. That wil' J
bj the crowning achievement, and is sure
to come in due time.
The laws of the United States relating
to the enforcement of the rights of voters
will be found in our paper today. Wo
shall keep it as standing matter for several
days in our columns. We wish every cit
izen, whatever be his party bias, to vote
freely and without being controlled by
improper influences. The law is just and J
impartial in its operations, and covers all I
with its protecting shield alike. Let every
man exercise his rights and, see that his.
neighbor has the same privilege. Real
the law carefully, and learn just what
those rights aro and the mode of seeking
a remedy. All violations of this stringent j
law are to be tried in the Federal courts, I
where justice can be sought without fear. I
Lay by the papers containing these im
portant provisions for future reference.
THE REPUBLICAN VICTORY AT
The magnificent victory achieved by our
friends in tbe District of Columbia is the
occasion of rejoicing all over the country-
It is everywhere felt to be something more
than a mare local triumph. The battle
was hotly contested at every point. The
issues made up were broad aud national.
There were no merely local questions to
affect the result, beyond the interest which
all business men felt in tbe ascendency of
a party whose past record justified their
confidence. The election was untainted
by any possible frauds. It was peaceful
and undisturbed almost beyond precedent.
Its result is a vindication of the great
party whose representatives have just
closed their labors at the Capitol where the
election was held. It is a substantial en
dorsement of the stern legislation with
which Congress closed its session. In tbe
stirring words of Col. Forney, of tho
Philadelphia Press :
It olosea the period ot Republican diasension
and opens tbe future of Republican victory. It
is death to tbe defeat that springs from perso
nal quarrels, and life to tbe apirit born of per
total magnanimity. Itaavea the capital or tbs
nation from periodical discussions about in*,
poaaible removal to doubtful localities. It in
dicates the ability of the colored man to enjoy
the liberty won by tbe bullet and consecrated
by the ballot. It reacuea tbe capital frorujin
-uencea which, however capable, must have
been certainly calamitous.
It invites to you Northern men and North
ern money: and through you pours emigia- I
tion, enterprise, and wealth all over the fertile
and semi-populated expanses of the South.
Had you failed in your struggle to day, the
great capital started by Washington and "saved
by Grant would have been a aort of Flandera
between tbe North and South, where discordant
factions, abaming the name of Democracy,
would have plotted new diatruat in the one,
and new devastation and treachery in the other.
But from tbia night you date a new evangel- I
iam. You begin another career; and in the
name of the millions who are getting prouder
every day of their country, aa they contraat it
with tbe lacerated condition of such a nation
as poor, bleeding France, ao do they become
prouder of the capital of that country. Iv
their name, and aa one who has followed your
fortunes through good and through evil re
port, 1 congratulate you oo tbe magnificent
victory of to-day.

THE NEW LOAN.
Washington, April 22.—Subscription*
to the new loan to-day amounted to $46,
--000. Subscriptions are coming in rather
slow now, on account of the semi-annual
interest on the 5:20 bonds falling due on

them now, as they can draw interest with
out rebate after Monday next. Tho new
loau will probably bo taken more rapidly
after the first proximo.

terest on the new loan be paid by check of
the treasurer of the United States, payable
to the order of the holder of the bond, so
that hereafter parties holding the bonds

ant treasurers to receive their interest, but
will get it direct from the treasury depart-

Word. For Richmond Democrats.
The brave words of Hon. Wm. P. Have
[ mayer on taking tho chair at the recent
I great reform ma?s-mecting at the Cooper
Union, are too timely and significant to be
allowed to be buried with tho programme
of eveu so distinguished an occasion. We
reproduce them, and ask thoughtful men
who may have any stake in cither tho mo
netary or moral welfare of this city and
State, to weigh well tho comparisons
drawn between tho past and present style
of administrating public affairs, and the
suggestions they mike of the proper reme
dies for the present disgraceful and threat
ening condition of tha political situation.
The admonitions of such a veteran politi
cian, and honored and tried public officer,
ought not to pass unheoded. They apply
in their fullest scope to Richmond politics:
I thank you, the honor
you have conferred upon me in selcetiug me
lo preside on thia occasion. You will have
learned, from the call just read, the object of
thia meeting, and in view of its object, it ia an I
important meeting, but only important If it I
inaugurates a movement which shall nnite in
active, energetic co-operation that class of our
fellow-citizens throughout tho State which ia
friendly to an honest, efficient, and economical
government, and oppoaed to the present
unscrupulous, inaolent, and dishonest cabal,
which, under tho time honored name of
the Democratic party, and in coalition
with the corrupt element which swaye the
machinery of the Republican party, haa sub
stituted a partnership of plunder in place of tbe
natural and wholeeome competition which
should alwaya exist between parties holding
different opinions upon any question of public
interest. Now, I am a Democrat, havo al
waya been and alwaya expect to be one—a I
Democrat who, in private life, always yielda to
>tbers what he asaerta for himself; and in pub- |
ie matters advooatea all measures thatpromiae I
the greatest good to tbe greatest number, and
waa proud of tbe title when the Democratic
party waa under the leadership of Silas Wright,
Azariah Flagg and their distinguished asaoci
ttes—men whose devotion to the welfare of
he masses and the interests of the State
and nation was paramount to every selfish con
sideration. These lights have, however, dia
ppeared, and amid the darkness and gloom by
rhich we are now surrounded, wo seem to
look in vain for a rising sun ; but as their
placea and functiona havo been usurped by
men, who, by chicanery and fraud, have de
graded the party in this city to the level ol
their own infamy, it would appear to be time
that aome Btepa should be taken to change the
character of our present government, and that
all good men of all parties should unite their
energiea in effecting a reform in the publio
aentimentae sball hurl these partiea and their
affiliationa from power, and, if possible, bring
us back to the good old days when office was
identified with honor, and corruption and
venality with diahonor and lasting disgrace.

Editorial Excursion —It was stated
aeveral daya ago that an excursion party of
editors from the State of New York would
ahortly visit Richmond. The Staunton Vir.
ginian gives the following particulars, which
it probably derived from Mr. Uotchkisa:
"Mr. N. H. Uotcbkiss, the soliciting agent
of tbe Chesapeake and Ohio railroad and tbe
York River railroad, haa made arrangemente j
to give about thirty Northern editora a'free
ride" from Elmira, N. V., to Baltimore—thence
to Richmond—thence to Staunton, where they
will remain a day at the Virginia hotel—thence
to the White Sulphur Springs, where they
remain several days. They will then return
to Richmond, continue their trip to Danville,
Va., and Greenaboro', N. C. Then they will
return by the aame route to their homes. Mr.

Hotel," at the southwest corner of Main and
Twelfth streets, will be opened by Colonel
Norvell Cobb for the entertainment of the pab

thorough knowledge of thia branch of business
and hia liberal expenditures will make tbe new
hotel a really attractive feature of our city.
Everything about the premises ia admirably

etylishly furnished. The cool, freah-looking
dining room ia particularly attractive. Every
