Tuesday Morning, October 30, 1800.
Thc Chicago Times has tho follow?
ing; chapter on this topic:
Political priests ave doing more to
maintain tho ascendancy of the Illach
Republican party, and t<> "educate a
generation to hate thc South," than
arc all tho newspapers and all thc
other loaders of thal party. We do
not exaggerate in this. In thu last
presidential campaign, as good au?
thority as John W. Forney, the
proprietor and editor of two daily
newspapers, each having a wide cir?
culation, and a man not likely to
under-estimato tho influence of the
press, declared that the Republican
party in Pennsylvania would be
chiefly indebted for its victory to the
"loyal Christian church."' lt was
this institution which most effectively
helped the designs of the patriots
Forney and Cameron in Pennsyl?
vania/ It was the "loyal'' Christian
church which gave tho Black Repub?
licans in that State thc victory on
Tuesday, and there were thousa%ls
of Democrats in that State who
helped liberally to pay political
priests for doing it.
It fis not difficult to understand
why political teachings in the pulpit
are more impressive than elsewhere,
They are delivered under the sanc?
tion of religious forms, and are ac?
companied by solemnities and cir?
cumstances which are well calculated
to assure thc audience of the sinceri?
ty of the speaker. Were a pot house
politician, like John Wentworth, to
say in a brothel that "the fight be?
tween Congress and the President is
God Almighty's light, and it cannot
stop until (?od Almighty says
enough," the statement would bc
considered as the ravings of a blas?
phemous blackguard; but when thc
same language is employed by ;i
Reverend Ilatfield in church, and ii
preceded by religious ceremonies and
a formal prayer to Cod, it is accept?e
by a great many as au authoritative
announcement of "the Divine will.'
If the thought is an irreverent one
and the expression of it blasph?mons
a more severe censure should res
upon him who employs it in profess?e
worship than 0:1 the drunken derna
goguc who is profane from habit.
We think it is time for Democrat;
seriously to consider the extent of tin
wrong they are committing in en
couraging thc prostitution of pulpit
and churches, and in contributing b
the support of political priests. Ashli
from all consequences resulting fron
such action of a jiolitical nature, tin
spirit of irreverence springing fron
the conversion of the pulpit to ?
hustings is an evil which should se
riously alarm all who truly respec
that which is sacred. There is not J
preacher- in the country who ha
made himself notorious by dabbling
in politics who has not employee
language in the pulpit as profam
and vulgar as that which we bavi
quoted. The contemptible vanit;
which makes this class of men itel
for applause, and spurs them to th
discussion of political questions
prompts them also lo resort to tin
artifices of demagogues, and to ut
tempt to create a sensation by prc
fanity. The business is demoralizing
and congregations are taught t
speak ot' Cod with a flippant irrevt
i-euce which must diminish resptic
for His character. Let Democrat
withdraw their feet from politic:
churches, and their support froi
Black Republican . demogogic:
priests-then it wilL not be ion
before we shall have much more <
religion in our politics, while thei
shall be nothing of politics in 01
The Louisville Journal corrects a
erroneous impression that prevails i
the minds of many persons who spea
and write as if the Congression;
elections occurring this fall won!
affect the character of the Congre;
that meets in December. The on]
influence their elections can ha'
upon that body is a moral influence

of <)ur national affairs, they won

A despatch i<> the Worlds&ys:
Tlio situation on thc surface hore
has assumed a quiet condition, but
the leaders are as earnest ami as na?
tive as ever. The radicals claim to
have ever 2,000 nu n armed ami in
readiness, to which may be added
the eutire regular police force of the
city, and an extra force who still
hold thc commission issued to them
before the late municipal election.
The radicals generally have not re?
treated a ste]) from the position they
have assumed, and are more fully
prepared to resist the Governor of
Maryland now than they were live
daysago. The Police Commissioners
will not appear on Friday at the hear?
ing before the Governor, neither in
person nor by counsel. They are de?
termined that it shall be an ex parle
As there are over one hundred affi?
davits to be considered, iL is not be?
lieved the Governor will render a de?
cision before Monday night. In the
event of his decision being against
the Commissioners, the latter will
not vacate their offices except %y
force. In this way, they hope to put
the responsibility of a collision on
the Executive of the Slate. General
Cunby, commanding this depart?
ment, has informed the local author?
ities that if the Governor calls on
the President and states that he is
unable to suppress the insurrection
in the State, Federal forces will be
most certainly employed. Some of
the radicals are facilitating them?
selves to-night that they have over?
awed the Governor, and that, as a
consequence, a collision will not be
precipitated. Xo public meetings
have been held to-night, but the ra?
dical armed organization is perfect.
Governor Swann remains at. Anna?
polis, and will not visit "Washington
again. Tie was informed, last night,
that the condition of affairs here had
been fully considered, and the action
of Hu- Government decided en in
Cabinet meeting yesterday. The re?
sult was communicated to bim, ami
is as above stated.
Governor Swami's proclamation
has had the effect of quieting affairs
in a local point of view in this city,
so far as small rows, Ac., prc con?
THE QUESTION OF MORAXIS.-We do
do not believe that it is well to insti?
tute comparisons, or to boast the mo?
rality of one section of the country
against the immoralities of another
section. But the radicals make it the
constant theme of their reproach
against, the South, that th?! people
here are given np to iniquities of the
grossest kind. In view of this fact,
the Boston Commercial says it maybe
well to inquire haw it happens, if
society is so impure lhere, that New
Orleans is obliged to send to the North
for inmates to supply the maisons de
Joie of that city. The Boston Recorder,
speaking of the loss of the ill-fated
Evening Star, says: "The worst part
of the freight was ninety-six bad girls,
with live persons who had culled them
out of the gaudiest dens ol' New
York, to promote vice in New Orleans.
Perhnps never were such a cotilo and
a circus company and an opera troupe
embarked together over the same keel
before." It is a strange circumstance,
that "the most moral section of the
country" furnishes supplies of this
sort to "the. most immoral section."
PREPARING FOE THEM.-We stated,
a few days ago, on the strength of a
Washington rumor,' that au order had
boen issued to prepare barracks foi
30,000 troops in Washington. It is
freely stated, upon what is declared
good authority, that the Quartermas?
ter's Department bas received orders
to provide quarters tn the District foi
10,000 troops. The shipment and
sales of commissary stores that had
been p.eoumulatcd there during the
war, has ceased by direction within
tho past two months.
A PRAYING PAKSON.-A righteous
radical parson, in tho North west,
prays the "Supreme Ruler of the
Universe to forgive the fierceness oj
party strife," but also implores Him
to "deliver the President from thc
errors into which he has fallen, tc
restrain him from desperate measure:
in the day of his disappointment,'
and to make him act like a radica
generally. Such prayers are an ad
mirable method to abate the "fierce
ness of party strife!" Holy man.
SANTA ANNA.--Tho New York Ile
raid says that Count Nostity, whe
served for some time in our own wai
on the Union side, bas just returnee
to tho United States, from Mexico
hy way of Havana, and had an inter
view with Santa Anna. Count Nos
ti ty represents the chances for Sante
Anna as favorable, since most of tin
lower class of the people of Moxie*
are opposed both to Juarez and tin
Empire, hoing fomented thereto Ivj
the emissaries of other chiefs. Fur
thermore, we are told that an offei
will ho made to Santa Anna to-day
or at least at his office, No. 54 Beavei
street-to furnish him 10,000 Enfielc
rifles at ?B10 apiece.
THE MEXICAN MUDDLE.-A special
to the New York Herald, of thc 25th,
It is beyond ch ubt that the pre?
eminent question before tho Cabinet
is thc Mexican one, but it is not truo
that the Government has come to a
final decision on ?ill tho great and
main points involved. The onfl?r
point which hus been decided is that
tho Government will not tako any
territory from Mexico. This your
correspondent knows to bo a fact.
Mr. Campbell knows very little at
present about toe ulterior policy to
bc pursued in the Mexican matter.
This is partly due to the sickness
which has attacked him since Iiis
arrival in Washington. It is true, lie
has received instructions, but they
are only general ones. The special
instructions, those of vital impor?
ta]) ce, he has yet to get.
There is sufficieet official informa?
tion here to prove that the despatch
on Mexican affairs dated New Or?
leans, October 24, was not based on
facts. Trevina, ono of Escobedo's
generals, went to Zacatecas, and not
to San Luis Potosi, to look after
Mejia. There could not have been a
severe battle near Saltillo to defeat
the Liberals, as per very latest and
reliable accounts there were no Impe?
rial Mexicali or French forces within
striking distance. On the 24th ult.,
Juarez wrote that Durango would
soon be occupied, and that he would
establish his headquarters there or at
OUTRAGES BY FREEDMEN. -WeJearn
that a most daring attempt was made
to burn out Mr. Benjamin Clements
on Thursday morning of last week,
just before daylight; but being
aroused by the barking of a dog, Mr.
Clements succeeded in putting out
the lires and arresting' one of thc in?
cendiaries before good daylight. The
negro arrested implicated another,
who had passed most of the night
with him, and promised Mr. C. that,
if he would release him, he would
have the other, who is a noted vil?
lain, in the neighborhood the next
night, so that he could be taken.
Nothing has been heard from them
since, but, as they are well known
characters, they will bo caught, if j
tiny remain in tho District.
ANOTHER. -On Tuesday morning
last, between midnight and daylight,
two negroes went to the residence of
an old gentleman, named Allan Dow?
ling, twelve milos from here, and
obtained admittance to the house,
choked the old man until senseless,
and then robbed him. We learn that
Mr. Dowling has partially recovered
his senses, but does not know the
negroes. He says they knocked first
and he opened thc door, whim they
choked him until he remembered no?
thing more. - Darlington Southerner.

GRANT ANO THE AMENDMENT.-The
Philadelphia Press, of Thursday
morning, says that Hon. .lohn L.
Thomas, representative in Con?
gress from the Second Maryland Dis?
trict, and a candidate for re-election,
had a recent conversation with.Gen.
Grant, in New- York, in which tie.,
latter explicitly and voluntarily took
ground in favor of the constitutional
amendment, and declared that it
would be fatal to Hie South if they
refused to adopt it. In all the
speeches of Mr. Thomas, he gives
the particulars of this conversation,
in which the General gave him this

FREEDMEN'S SAVING BANK BUSTED, j
We have been informed through a
reliable source, says the Mobile Tri?
bune, that the popular institution !
(among the niggers) known as the
"Freedmen's Savings Bank,'" has
handed in its checks. A coroner's I
inquest was held by a sable brother,
and the verdict rendered was, "Died
with circus on tho braiu." Several
days previous to its demise, the circus
was observed to lie crowded with
colored individuals, all drawing the
requisite wherewith from the immacu?
late bank. At present there is not a
farthing in the till. A piece of red
crape hangs on the door-knob of said
institution, and every darkey that
jiasses that way pulls off his hat in

CHARLESTON AND SAVANNAH BAIL
ROAD.-We learn that a bill has been
filed in the United States Court for
this District by the corporation of
the Bogers' Locomotive Machine
Works, New York, for au injunction
against the sale of the above road,
advertised to take place in November.
As this is a ease of great public im?
portance, it is to be presumed that a
hearing will be had at an early day.
Tho counsel for the corporation is
Gen. William E. Martin. The bond?
holders ^ro represented by Hon.
Henry Buist and Hon. J. B. Camp?

"Mary, who died for you?" asked a
parson of a blooming sweet sixteen.
"Nobody as I know on," was the
promptreply. But the parson repeat?
ed, with zeal, "Mary, I say, who died
for you?" Mary was irritated, but
replied, "Why, nobody, sir; there
was Bob Dawson lay bed-rid for me
about six months, but folks say he
got up again."
JUST SO.-Some insinuating chap
remarks that about tho only politi?
cians who can be fully relied on never
to betray confidence aro those who
never have it reposed in them.
"Now, then, my hearties," said a
gallant captain, "you have a tough
battle before you. Fight like heroes
till your powder's gone; then run!

consequence of a man named Thomas
having pitched bis wife out of a se?
cond-story window of a boarding?
house in that neighborhood.

On the evening of Saturday, the 13th of
October, IStJf?, departed this" life, in the
thirtv-first vear of her age, Mrs. MARY
ADAMS 1JR?OKS, wife of Capt. J. Hamp?
den Brooks, and daughter of the late cx
Gov. dames II. Adams.
Amidst the gloom of tho public calamity,
this visitation of death has been felt with
peculiar poignance by the surviving kin?
dred and friends of the departid. She
died at the residence of her husband and
Iiis mother, and her remains were intorrod
in the family cemetery at tho village of
Edgefield. U wa-* on the 21th of January,
185(5, that, in the bloom of her youthful
health and beauty, sic- became a beloved
and cherished wife. Time only served to
endear hi r more and more to each and
every member of her husband's family.
Her genuine simplicity and truthfulness ?f
character, her amicable, prudence and good
sense, and her high spirit and native en?
ergy, commanded and enforced respect;
while her warm and sympathetic heart, her
considerate regard for tho feelings of
others, her engaging modesty and her uni?
form sweetness of temper and manners,
inspired even more of affection and love.
During the brief period of life allotted to
her, she was hot without lier trials. A de?
voted mother, daughter and sister, she
was visited with affliction in all these rela?
tions. Her first-born, her eldest son, was
taken from her by death. She saw her
noble father sink into the tomba few years
since, and but recently an attached and be?
loved sister. These trials were borne with
a Christian humility and resignation not
unworthy of the Episcopal Communion to
which she belonged. She was the imper?
sonation of maternal love, and to ber "five
infant children her loss is irreparable. To?
wards her husband, ber loving do votier^
found expression in every act, and word,
j and look; to him her death is a calamity
and a sorrow profound and inexpressible.
Beloved in all tho relations of life, she has
been torn from her family, of which she
was thc ornament and pride; and her sor?
rowing relations and kindred find consola?
tion only ? i the remembrance of her vir?
tues and in the reflection that she baa
been translated to a brighter and happier
