-1,te Secret ofrlolitical PoVer.,
A policy to become cfrective and
bear fruit, must be founded either on
Sfacuts as they aire, and their necessary,
n or at least natural tendency, or up
a rn a determined purpose to effect a
~ change in things as they are, and to
. arouse passion to the assistanco of
t what is dosired caritestly, and chosen
f firmly as that which ought to be.
The first relics upon strong conviction
as the motive power of success ; tbe
second, on firm and unshrinking wvill,
- fortified by the proverb, that "where
there is a will, there is a way."
Now, just at present, this Stato has
no policy, and its intelligent property
t holders have tihe ohooc of one or the
- other of the above principles upon
R which to inaugurate one. We agree
with the Phwnix, that "it is a momen
tous matter, of the very gravest im
portance, to give direction to a policy
- for a people." But we, nevertheless,
I boldly counsel :-"build on things as
( they are, and not on the desire to
r change them to what ought to be."
Conviction, belief, faith, or whatever
name you ohoose to give to the atti
r tudo of human nature in the presence
D of what is, is far steadier and stronger,
v t'ni- h-p or ,ibro, or even deter

f Now, then, for the application.
f We have not dug down so deup, to the
-very granite, for nothing. We have
not discussed the knowing, the feeling,
and the willing faculties, and demon..
. strated the normal superiority of.the
t knowing and believing faculty, for
f nothing ; but to give force to our
counsel, to run mixed white and black

Timc Forces of I~atumre.
The position of the Mobile Tribuene,
that the issue cannot be changed at
the South, and is, and must be, White
against Black, and that, therefore,
Icompromise is folly, and it is best to
forego offico for the present, and trust
to time and the forces of nature, is a
Ssincere, bold and manly position, and
we respect it, aind all who hold it.
a Like many bold, fiashy, plausible
-theories, howevecr, it simph/ies mnatters
- fir 1too much to be truec, and makes
r statesmanship far too plai-sailing to
a be believed in, or acted upon. 1t is
- a clear statement, but not of the
y' truth. 'The'logic does not tally with
3 experience, as for example, in our
last election for District officers.
-We, therefore, reject it. "The forces
of nature" had far better ic helped a
little by the "medicine"' of "Lard,
horse sense.'" And thus, in comment

Bin g ham 's amiiend ment and the vote
on it, is anothor fact in proof of our
position, that the column on which a
now party should form is already In
existence in Congresi.
TuC M:cnmm. Bn.L.. - The interest
in the llouse to-day centred upon the
Georgia bill and the vote upon the
Btingham amendment thereto. Gene
rat 1utler's speech was an incoherent
harangue, not at all up oven to his
own standard, but delivered with ap
parent assurance that he was convine
ing the rank and file of the House,
and that Ie would overwhelm Bing
han with the vottes of Republicans
against. the amendment.
'o Butler's con.sternation, and to
the surprise of some others, when the
Speaker called tpon those in favor of
Binghani's amendiment to rise, about
one-half of the Republicans stood up
and these, counted with the Doemo
e.ats, carried the amenidment by a
voto of 114 to 72. Nessrs. Dwee,
Banks, and others of Butler's col
leagues voted for the amendmont, and
never before did the would be succes

only upset Butler, but it ' stroyed
the hopes and scheumes of Governor
Bullock and his eo.couspirators.

teprC4eitatIve Men for O01ce.
A candid obrorver will scarcely fail
to admit, that almost all of ,tho
old Federative Republic of the
United States that is left, is our rep
resentativo system, through which the
will of a now consolidated nation is
expressed. The battle for liberty is,
therefore, now to be fought, in the
main, exactly hero, by sending to
the Legislature and to Congress truly
representative men. Parties and
polities are In a mixed and confused
conditions The differences between
Republicans and 'Domocrats are al
most as numerons as the Dumber of
prominent men in either party. A
wise policy will be, then, undoubted
ly, the one which will look to men and
their well-known charaeter, and not
to the political name they may hap
pen to bear. JLet them take any~ namre
they/ pleaae, anad run as candidates of
any party that is mose likely to elect
them, (for all parties are in confusion)
provided theoy bc men truly representatire
of t he people and of the Stlatc. Elect
them on their chiaracter-for sense and
hionesty, and let them find a policy, woith
theo developments of timec. Just as we
would say to a young man :be care
ful to develope excellence of charac
ter in all parts of y our being, a clear
headl, a feeling heart, an undaunted
will ; and meet the future depending,
not on your eiroumtamicEs, hiut on your
character to solve its every problem;
so, we say to the citizens of the State,
Gil every office you can with men of
good tcharacter, truly representative of
whaat is best Io our society, and trust
your politics caltnly into their bands.
By far the most limportent measures
of Legislation are often those upon
wich parties split, and votes scatter,
and, as in the impeachtuent-trial of
Andrew .Johnson, a few honest and in
dependent men save their party from
disgrace, and theIr country fronm dis
AVision of BlIoo.
We have before warned our een
temnporaties that Someo of thoem are
dissominatinag "ideas which, whether,
they arceconsolous of it or not, have

self, in not only being captivated, but
in being thoroughly deceived by then.
Our plain avowal of our conviction
that our government is already revo.
lutionised, and beyond recovery ; that
republican principles, whether for
weal or woe, are already infused into
its very nature ; and oar open advoca.
cy of Conservative Republianism as
a policy, as opposed to extreme radi.
calism, the Phtenix terms "a flank
movement," which "will deceive no
body." Look at it: that seems to us,
a very singular sort of a flank move
mont ; but it may be, for we are not a
military nian, and perhaps don't know.
Again, all government and statesman
ship proceeds by the method of com
promise and persuasion ; warfare, by
the method of uncompromising force.
Our "tactics" are condemned, because
we see a great difference between the
two things, and detect the deceptive
nature of the analogy between a civil
Pud a military conflict, which our
neighbor, taking pen, far mightier
than the sword, in hand> and fancying
himself at the head of the Regimont
charging "contrabands," instead of
writing for negree voters, seems total
ly to forgot. The fight with negrot
voters, we assure our military friend,
is a tougher fight than any our Con
federate troops ever had with the
Moontrabahds." A bullet wifl pirnce

policy of the Plhenix will convince his

things so different, thalt a statesman
is required for the one, while a sol.
dier is qite enough for the ether.
Th~e truth jis, we see clearly that
our views are not in acoord with those
of a large portion of the whiite
people of the State. We have
not attempted to deceive them, or tc
conceal our opinions. It would be
best for this State, we believe, for
many year. to come, to be in accord
with the administration, If a respeeta.

This is the real dillioulty, that we
have been outspoken ; but some of
our friends wish to rescue us from er
ror. To such we say : Gentlemen,
thank you ; but, why not let every
man think and speak, if he chooses, in
his own way ? We know, we will not
convince you. But we, and such as we,
will give you] o.tter gover nment, un.
il the forces of nature prevail, the
white element predominates, and the
top rail rises from the bottom-and
we may add-be cured for doing so.

To Tell the Actual Value of
The American Stock Journal in
reference to the subject says :
"Now, we can go into a dairying
neighborhood, and point to farmers
who are losing from two to the
thousand dollars a year by keeping
cows yielding two hundred pounds of
butter per year, instead of those that
would yield from five to six hundred
pounds in the same time. How many
dairymen can tell tike relative value
of each cow of his herd by actual test?
There is a little instrumentfor this pur
pose that don't cost much,'but a very
few d airymen know anything about it.
It is called a "Lactometer," con
structed by placing i number of glass
tubes, of equal length and diameter,
in a wooden frame. The milk from
each cow is placed in some of these
glass tubes ; there they stand side by
side, and you can see the depth of
cream that rises in each tube, repre
senting a certain cow, and estimate
her value thereby. These instru
ments are kept for sale in Pbiladel
phia and other cities."

these attending, - soon as they enter
the room, prove that we are not whol
ly dependent upon circuses or other
ruder shows to entertain us in Winns
bore, but that we cni get up consid
erable fun and entertainment, on cc
casione, among ourselves. There is
something, however, which we do
need, and wh'ieh could be easily sup
plied by the very genti omen who have
chargeof our theatrical amusements.
We need a neatly furnished and com
fortable public-reading room supplied
with papers and periodicals, well
lighted at night, from which all im
morality or praetices tending to im..
morality should be excluded, but in
which such games as Chdas or Back
gam mon might be allowed. . We need,
in other words, a respectj.ble club,
and a convenient club room..
