Tha Riehmori Election.
It has boen rumored that tho result
of the late election at Hie:::::jud JIMS
been sot aside and declared void by
the military edict of Gen. Torry. Thi..
statement has not been confirmed, and
we regard it as entirely without foun?
dation. Such an act as that would
strike away tao last prop of republi?
canism itt this country, and the whole
?abric would fall in irretrievable ruin;
But there is sutiicient cause for
anxiety in the contemplation of the
attitude of the Black KepubHcau
press in regard to the resuit o'." tho
flection at l?iehmond. It s sams that
ibo organs ot' the dominant parly" are
unwilling to accord to tho Southe i
people the enjoyment of their pr: .. ..
encos in the exercice of the elective
franchise. If they are not to be per?
mitted to select the candidates of t ; ir
choice for the administration ot" their
io?^il affairs, their franchise is .-. ;WK
ory. It would be far better Lo sp?re
them the expense and trouble of elec?
tions, by giving the appointment of
their civil officials to the Federal Exe?
cutive. It is natural that the people
of the South should vote for men wv. >
lin ve served the caes-.; of thc ( on:'- i
racy. That cause was held sacred by
the Southern masses, and, whether ii
was right or wrong, in cir a?ncero C??I
victions were enlisted v. its support.
It is not now to be expected that they
will publicly censure those wh ? f>b< y< .
their wishes and championed tin Lr
principles in tho hour o, ?! inger. 1;
tue populations of tuc c:onqu re I t? ; -
ritory are to be received h.'to ih'
household bf th? Union, ?ho;, must b;:
invested with thc political right * com?
mon to the communities oi the '.-. pub?
lic, and of. those rights tv,- free <.-LC;-- \
oise of the oleutr-e franchise is th - >
most essential. Shall w . pre- um? io ;
dictate to them who sh:.ll he mayor of j
this city and who of th:'.;, and billi
profess tobe the guardians of their j
republicanism? A coteniporary says !
of the Richmond election: "Thc li ?.si
month al ter the oecupaaion of Rich.
mond, no man coule: have he? ?? elected .
to ofiice to the skirts ol' wh .>....* gar?
ments hung even fte odor o' the re- i
hellion, and nowthcysweep the city." t
Why should they not "swoop the j
city," if its inhabitants are so nearly
unanimous in favo:- of certain candi- |
?late?? Either they have the righi toi
vote as they please, cr they have not ; ;
and if they have, why should the;, be ;
abused for exercising their privilege ?d' ?
choice? But the same paper ins;; t ; ?
that the military authorities are re?
sponsible for the result ol' that eh i- !
tion. Are we, then, to understand
that the military authorities should I
have used their military power to con- j
trol the result? "High officers oi the :
army,'' says this journal, "associated
constantly with men whose violent
secession antecedents were as well I
known as their names, and these mon
had acc?;ss to them at all times." Wc
perceive nothing in this that is in an?
tagonism with the laws of the repub- i
lie. Now that the war ia over, it is
surely not a cime for Federal officers I
to associate with their late adversa
lies. It is, on the contrary, a virtue,
unless we propose to keep alive the
embers of antagonism, and build up a
social barrier between tito two sec?
tions. But, if we propose to cultivate
friendly feelings, and mutual confi?
dence and respect, it is eminently
proper that social intercourse should
"?e frank and unrestricted.
The War Democracy, at least, has
no?hmg to gain by oppo-ing tlio pri?
vilege of five suffrage ia the South.
If the Southern people ure to be per?
mitted to vote .-is they please, they
will vote for tuen identified with the
j Confodevatocause; if they aro not tobe
j accorded thc right ol clo ie.', they will
i vote l'or those who control th'* bayo?
nets. Tu cither cuse, the War Demo
I erais may KS weil give up the hope of
j wielding a political intiueuec :.t thc
South.- J?C.'P /'.V/V A.-irs.
