Times justly remarks, that not with

respendent makes patent to ever

in the Northern papers, statement
all tending to show' that England i
going fast to ruin.
The Times, in its comments upoi
these thing?, nays:
"England's prosperity, as luminous

of this paper, is due to the stability
and justice of her laws and the per
manence of her Executive. She i
not torn to pieces once in four year
by the ruinous conflicts of great par

There is no doubt, we think, tha
much of the stability of the Britisl
Government is owing to her limit?e
and Constitutional monarchy, am
it might possibly be better for th
stability of our institutions if thest
party contests every four years coule
be avoided. Yet the Times will agrei
with na, that much of the prosperity
of England is also attributable to th?
wise conservatism of her statesmei
and people. No violent shocks to tin
established laws are ever felt there
and the "British Constitution" is toe
firmly entrenched in the hearts am
affections of the people for any derna

DEAR PHCENTX: lu this; growing
city, there aro many noble'."land inge?

with the Southerners in their crushed
and impoverished condition. Daring
the entire war, they contributed
largely to the wants of Southern sol?
diers who were in prison, cut ofi from
home and loved ones;,und since the
close of the war, many of the.Balti
moreans have given largely to all the
calls that have been made from Vir?
ginia and other Southern States, and
some of them really wish th?y could
give more in ibis direction. In fact,
during the last four months, this City
has been infested with clerical beg?
gars-some asking contributions to
' feed the poor, some asking means to
repair and rebuild colleges, and
others begging, for congregations
whose churches 'have been destroyed:
This process of .begging has been so
repeatedly prosecuted, that the clerks
in the large establishments say more
beggars than customers call. We
fondly hope that no other beggars
will come to this city during the pre?
sent year, for those whb respond to
benevolent calls have exhausted their
means of giving, or, at least, they
have done all they are able to do in
this department.. There are some
people here,, as elsewhere, who have
not studied the great principles of
political and social economy closely
enough to understand that the inte?
rest of others is really their interest,
and hence they encase themselves iu
their own shells ard shut out all the
other members of the family. Some
persons view themselves with micro?

DEAR PHONTX: Last evening I ha
the pleasure of seeing the Mil tonia
j Tableaux, or more strictly, Milton'
Paradise Lost, panoramically illa;
This tableaux exhibition is divide
into three sections; section first show
representations of Heaven, rebellio
of Satan, and war of angels. It cora
menees with the gathering of th
angels around the Almighty's throne
where they are represented as payin
humble and devout adoration to th
Creator; this is beautiful aud iinprei
sive. Presently, Satan becomes ir
subordinate to the Divine govert
ment, withdraws to "the North-eas
corner of Heaven, gathers aroun
him a host of disaffected spirits
harangues them, and excites them-1
rebellion. A war ensues betwee
these and the holy angels; the contes
deepens, and becomes fiercer still
Satan is oscillating between the fea
of failure and the hope of succest
after a protracted contest, Satan j
just ready to shout victory, when th
Son of God mounts His flainin
chariot, and accompanied with hi
loyal angels, he joins combat wit
Satan; the battle is terrible, th
carnage awful, but finally Satan an
his adherents are defeated and hork*
out of Heaven.
"What struck us as ludicrous in thi
section, was the belching cannon
brought in the play in the last d<
oisive battle. It reminded us of
preacher, who, on a certain occasior
was speaking of an event that'occurre
during the eleventh century, an
spoke of the: firing of cannon; w
queried, where did they get the:
Section second-The creation
commencing with the strrgrag watei
cf Chaos, and ending with, the ere?
tion of animals and man. In tb
consecutive scenes were beautiful]
illustrated the several great epochs i
the history of this world's formatior
Section third represented Band?
monium, or hell-commencing wit
Satan's flight from hell throug
Clia-js, to this earth. On his way, h
meets a pure angel, whom he deceive
and obtains all necessary directior
to this earth.
Section fourth represents the gai
den of Eden-Adam and Eve, thei
fall and subsequent expulsion. A<
cording to the panorama, Eden - i
beautifully pirteresoue, ?bonndin
with all that can gratify the s?st??d?
or pamper the opec ur ian. The first
pair are perfectly happy, and are in
intimate and pleasant communion,
Satan stealthily intrudes himself into
the garden, hears the conversation
between Adam and Eve, learns their
privileges and prohibitions,- then
quietly withdraws and concocts his
plans 'for the defeat of Jehova's pur?
pose. On a certain <lay Eve is de?
sirous of working in the garden alone,
Adam objects, but filially yields to
her fascinations. She is alone, the
subtle serpent 'appears, and in the
most bewitching gtrise, introduces
himself to Eve, and induces her to
eat the forbidden fruit. She eats
i and carries a' luscious cluster to
Adam; he eats, and presently they
discover their nudity, and endeavor
to cover it With fig-leaves and conceal
themselves. God discovers them,
interrogates Adam, he tries to excul?
pate %?mself by criminating Eve, she
acknowledges her guilt and relates
the occ?si?n of herseduction. Their
sentence is pronounced, they bow in
humble reverence, Eve confessed to
Adam her guilt, they ' both acknow?
ledge their sin and pray to their
Maker. Jesus presents their prayers
to his Father; they are necessarily
driven from the garden, but provision
is made for the salvation of tho race,
and the glorious announcement of
the Saviour's victory over Satan, is
made to the dejected pair.
This magnificent tableaux ends
with a representation of the Heavenly

tirent Meeting in New York.
An immense Union meeting was
held at the Cooper Institute, New
York, on the evening of the 22d ult.
Hon. Francis B. Cutting presided,
assisted by a large number of the
most prominent citizens as vice-Presi?
dents. Dudley Field, Esq., Mr.
"Ward, Postmaster-General Dennison,
I Hon. Henry J. Raymond, Hon. D.
S. Dickinson, G-3orge Opdyke, Esq.
and others addressed the meeting.
An address to the people of Now York
and resolutions were adopted.
The address is to the effect that the
question before the people is the
great one of pacification. What the
country needs is repose. The con?
flict of arms has ceaeed. The con?
flict of passions which led to arms
should cease also. Our heroic sol?
diers cherish no enmity toward those
they have overcome. The only ele?
ment of disturbance is the political
condition of the freedmen. There is
no substantial disagreement among
men respecting their civil rights.
We all agree that they must have the
civil rights of any other class of citi?
zens-rights of person and property,
to sue, to testify; in short, equality
before the law. But whether they
also have the right of suffrage is
dividing the question. There, how?
ever, can be no question -whatever,
that under the Constitution the power
of determining who shall or shall not
enjoy the privilege of the elective
franchise belongs exclusively to re?
spective States. New York has no
more right to say who shall or shall
not vote in Virginia, than Virginia
shall say who shall or shall not vote
in New York. Tho elective franchise
is not a natural right, but a political
trust. If it is is even true that every
person who is subject to laws, is
entitled to a parc in making them,
then every sojourner among us, every
foreigner, the moment he lands, is
entitled to vote. Because the blacks
had fought for the country, that does
not necessarily give them the right to
govern it, or participate in govern?
ment. If it were otherwise, every
boy from sixteen to twenty-one who
fought in the Union army should have
a vote without waiting for years of
discretion to participate in the Go?
vernment to which he is subjected.
The blacks fought for a country and
they have it. They fought for free?
dom and they have it. We should
welcome our emancipated brother to
all the rights of manhood, but when
we are asked to give all men of his
race, at the moment of their emanci?
pation, the right to participate in the
Government, we must answer in the
words of one of their number, more
intelligent than many other, white or
black: "The able-bodied only bear
arms-the able-minded only should
The address commends tho Presi?
dent's veto, and expresses the convic?
tion that the exclusion as Represen?
tatives from the States now unrepre?
sented in Congress of loyal men, who
were fairly elected and can take the
oath, is manifest usurpation. It con
chides by expressing confidence in
the integrity and fidelity to the prin?
ciples of Andrew Johnson, of the
general doctrine of his second mes?
sage, and a readiness to support him
in all the constitutional measures for
the public welfare. The resolutions
are to the same effect, and in addition
to the approved action of Senator
Morgan and Representatives Ray?
mond and Darling in sustaining the
The Freedmen's Bureau reports an
improved state of affairs among the

Gen. Howard, in his lecture on Sat?

Washington If cw? and Rumors.
There is an evident want' of cordi
diality noticeable to-day among the
radical Senators in their intercourse
With the conservative gentlemen who
aided in sustaining the President's
Teto yesterday. Outside of the Wade
and Stevens clique in Congress are
their party pensioners in the depart?
ments, ?who can be heard on th? Btreet
and in the lobbies glibly accounting
for the radical defeat by a mysterious
assumption of fraudulent collusion
between' the Executive and his sup?
porters. Senator Morgan, regarded
as the chief among the Marplots of
the radical policy, is vaguely charged
with succumbing to the bribe of the
New York Co???cwasl?p; Doolittle is
to have a mountaii of patronage set?
tled upon him for the term of the
present administration; Gowan to
stop nothing short of any > place in
the Cabinet to which he may elect,
and the residue are to: be plied with
a miscellaneous assortment of official
distinctions sufficient to keep them
active in soul and faithful to their
allegiance. With all these sinister
suggestions the great crowd of cele?
brities and Congressional lookers-on
that now fill Washington brimming
full appear to be only very much
amused, and not at all to be cheated
of their joke at the expense of the
One of the incidents connected
with the Senatorial vote upon the
Freedmen's Bureau bill yesterday,
now going the rounds with infinJte
zest, is the interest exhibited by
Senator Beverdy Johnson in respond- j
ing to a telegram apprising him that
the critical vote of yesterday was im?
minent. The honorable gentleman
was sojourning in Baltimore at the :
time of his notification, but im?
mediately put himself en route for the
capital on a locomotive and tender,
which performed the distance of forty
miles in forty-one minutes. Not one I
of the the radical phalanx could I
have guessed when Mr. Johnson
entered the Senate chamber, yester?
day, with about thirty minutes to
spare, that he had taken so exhilerat
iug a ride for the express purpose of
contributing his very important mite
An attempt was made by the Demo?
cracy in'the House to-day to recon?
sider the vote by which Thad. Ste?
vens' resolution was passed at a late
hour yesterday afternoon. The ayes
and nays showed more Republican
strength in favor of Andrew Johnson
than the vote did yesterday. Then
there were forty votes against the
resolution, including the full Demo?
cratic strength of the House; to-day
there were thirty-seven votes for re?
consideration, without the ayes of six
or eight Democrats, who were absent.
The New York Neio?, of the 22d,
There need be no fears that the
Freedmen's Bureau Bill will be passed
by the Senate in any other shape. It
is now known that five of the thirty
Senators who voted against sustain?
ing the veto yesterday would have
voted with the Democrats, if their
votes had been necessary to sustain
the veto. The principles embodied
in the bill are killed, and they can
never be revived and moulded into
law s by the present Congress.
The radicals like this veto so well
that they are prepai ing for another.
The negro suffrage bill, passed by the
House some time ago, was reported
in the Senate to-day without, amend?
ment, and the radicals intend to urge
its immediate passage. The radicals
may pass as many bills of this kind
as they please, but the President will
veto them as fast as they are laid
At the instigation of the radicals,
the flags on the negro school-houses
have been draped in crape to-day, as
a symbol of mourning over the de?
feat of the Freedmen's Bureau Bill.
There seems to be no doubt that
there will be a speedy re-organization
of the Cabinet, in consequence of
the President's veto. Mr. Seward,
two gentlemen from Southern States,
and either R?verdy Johnson or Se?
nator Cowan, of Pennsylvania, will
have seats in the new Cabinet.
There are rumors that both the
Senate and House Committees are
engaged upon a new Freedmen's
Bureau bill,Which it la hoped the
President will approve. Mr. Elliott,
of the House Committee, it is known,
is preparing such a measure, which
he expects to be able to'iutroduoe on
thc 23d. But of what avail would be
a new bill in the face of Mr. John?
son's declaration that no such mea?
sure is called for at the pr?sent time;
and further, that all such action is
unconstitutional without the vote of
the Southern representatives!
Mr. Sumner does not fail to com?
prehend the President's position, as
he is free to confess since thc veto
was received, that his proposition,
which he introduced as a substitute
for the constitutional amendment,
has not the ghost of a chance of suc?
cess, and it will therefore probably
be allowed an undisturbed repose.
Mr. Stevens, tao, say what he may
in the House publicly, is fully awake
to the fact that Congress cannot "get
along without the man at the other
end of the avenue," and for the pre?
sent, if not forever, he is satisfied
that his pet plans are destined to
A Washington despatch says it is
probable that General Grant will
soon lay his hands on. some Keninck

to Virginia, the most disloyal State
in the Union.

figure, there is very little to be had.
The fact is, the surplus produce in
this market is held to supply the l
Southern demand, which is growing
much heavier thau Avas anticipated,
and hence prices are nearly as high
.1?re as in New York. This is espe?
cially true as regards hog products.
There is, therefore, but little East?

A GOOD THOUGHT.-The God' of
the white man and the God of the

was the negro created black? It is
beyond the ken of man to ascertain.
Why were we created white? Is not
the mere difference in color sufficient
to warn us that Heaven designed a
difference? And have not some of

such a difference? Why are there
separate places for the respective
races even in your own chamber?
