Tuesday Morning, November 6,18b'6.
John Bright hus stirred up thc
popular feeling in Englaud to its
profoundest depths, and tho reform
agitation has reached a new phase in
that country, which is without prece?
dent. Even the conservatives-as
those opposed to popular enfranchise?
ment are called rn that country-ure
driven from their position of sullen
restiveness by tho overwhelming aud
imposing aspect of popular opinion.
As an evideuce of this, they have ap?
pointed M. DTsraeli tu prepare a
reform bill, which; it is said, w ill go
even beyond Mr. Gladstone's mea?
sure in his concessions to the work?
ing classes. This is tho last report
from that country, and it will not bc
surprising if the present Ministry
should endeavor to retain their posi?
tion by concessions, to which, while
in opposition, they would never have
The plan of reform proposed by
Mr. Gladstone and embodied iii the
bill on which he staked his Ministry
and their position in office, was to al?
low all to vote who paid a certain
rental-the consequence of which
would be the extension of the fran?
chise to a large number of the popu?
lation who are now excluded. Thc
principle was to allow every man tc
vote unless it could be shown that he
was disqualified. But +hc chief ques?
tion on this point was, who was t<
he tho judge? Both Bright am'
Gladstone declare that Parliament
. was to be the judge, and thc paymenl
of a particular rental the test. It i;
replied, on the other hand, that thi;
does not establish a principle-ii
only sets a limit, purely arbitrary
which might, at any time, be re
Tho truth is, universal suffrage ii
an absurdity, and would, sooner o:
later, sap the foundation of any fro*
Government. The ballot-box wouh
be a fruitful source of all evils, am
be prostituted to a mere tool in th
hands of ambitious demagogues
Whenever party leaders, even in thi
country, have tampered with Lt, it
purity has been despoiled, and hone:
voters ignominiously excluded froi
the rightful exercise of their priv:
lege as citizens. There must be mete
and bounds on this subject, if
healthful and legitimate effect in pr?
serving tho Government in its orig
nal perfection is to be expected. Wit
us at the South, heretofore, our p<
litical distinctions have beenfoundc
on invariable natural characteristics
that is to say, on the presumed <
admitted distinctions between tl
white race and the black race, the n
tural superiority of the one and tl
natural inferiority of the other. No\
this distinction has been modified I
the emancipation of the forim
slaves, and those who have hurrit
them into this condition, for whic
they were totally unfit and unpr
pared, desire to' increase tho evi
they have brought upon the bia?
man, by giving him the nnqualifh
right of suffrage, for which he is
much prepared as to enter college.
A change in our system, howeve
is inevitable, and the only safe wa
and the surest safeguard to good c
der and tho proper exercise of tl
franchise, is to adopt a proper
qualification-applicable to ali. ?
good citizen can object to this, ai
to it we will have to como at last.
The New York Evening Express,

The Amendment- Tiio Wliolc Ground j
The communication from Hon. Ii. |
F. Perry, which we published on j
Sunday morning, and which appears
in our tri-weekly <>f this morning, is
ono ol' tho ablest arguments, most
comprehensive, and most convincing
iu all tho positions tulum, that wo
have road among tho numerous dis?
quisitions which have appeared bu
tho subject from the pens of many of
tho leading men of tho ?South.
Senator Perry has taken up thc
subject, ns he docs all other*, calmly
and dispassionately; and from his in?
troductory remarks concerning the
object and ends aime il at, throughout
the complete discussionjof every sec?
tion of the proposition, his remarks
and reflections are those of a states?
man, and must carry conviction to
the minds of every reader. His dis?
section of the third clause of the
amendment is one. that cannot fail to
convince every halting South Caro?
linian, if there be any such, that the
people of this State could never sub?
mit to such dishonor and disgrace as
that contemplated by the provisions
of this section.
We agree wi til Senator Perry, that
the radicals never expected that the
Southern people would ever ?dopt
this amendment. It was a mere party
ruse, to distract the" people of the
South, if possible, and to persuade
thc North that they were offering
very easy terms to the rebels, as a
condition to their restoration-a pro?
mise they took good caro not to make.
We again commend Gov. Perry's let?
ter to a careful perusal by our readers.

Thc Fluctuation? In Gold.
We presume there are few people,
liviug remoto from Wall street, who
know anything about tho mysteri?s
of the gold market-of the causes
whian produce tho almost daily ebb
and flow in the price of the precious
metal. Yet every one has something
to urge on thc subject-especially
newspaper men, who arc generally
presumed to have a largo practical
intimacy with all questions of a finan?
cial character, lu a late nlimber of
the Baltimore j G'tt^/e, we lind a long
article, called forth by the announce?
ment that thcro are ?9?,000,OOO of
gold in the Treasury, the hoarding of
which t he writer regards as an unwise
feature in .Secretary McCulloch's
financial policy. Without pretend?
ing to determine to what ?xtent our
Baltimore cotemporary may be cor?
rect in his conclusions, wc copy a
portion of his remarks:
Mr. McCulloch is certainly hene
fitting ono class of men-tho manu?
facturers. By keeping up tho price
of gold to 150, he is virtually aiding
them by giving them what is equiva?
lent to a very large additional duty
in addition to the excessive duties
now levied. This is all very well for
Massachusetts; but it is very hard on
the masses of tho people. An appre?
ciation of gold is a depreciation o?
currency, and the policy which maket
thc Middle and Western and South?
ern agricultural States give more
grain, and more pork, and more cot?
ton, for shirts, and shoes, and woodcr
I nutmegs, is certainly neither a wisc
nor national one. The customs re?
ceived for the year 18GG will probably
! amount to $140,000,000. Of this sum
[ about $75,ODO,000 is paid out for golc
interest, a considerable portion o
I which goes abroad. On every cen
that goes abroad, the consumer o:
j foreign imports has to pay apremiun
I of 50 per ceut. so long as gold is a
150, which neither benefits him. no
the importer, nor the Government
j He is* merely taxed so much for th
rival manufacturer, and for nothin;
else. On the balance of the custom
received, Government benefits to th
\ extent of the gold premium save?
I on the gold interest paid ont or real
ized on the surplus gold sold. This
however, large as it appears as
whole, is a small matter when com
pared with the heavy tax on an al
ready overburdened commuuity, am
that, too, levied by a Governmen
whose receipts are professedly largel
in excess of its expenditures.
But this is not the only evil. ]
Mr. McCulloch and the administra
tion, of which he forms a part, desir
actually to bring about a healthy an
settled condition of affairs througl
out the country, the first requisite i
a settled policy. An unsettled polio
creates distrust and unsettles even
thing. Mr. McCulloch's objet
should be to inspire confidence an
not to destroy it. How can M
McCulloch expect a man to invei
largely in foreign goods-to-day wit
gold at 147, when he knows that M
McCulloch may throw 350,000,000 <
gold on the market next morning au
bear down the price to an extent sn
ficient to ruin him? This is sure
no way to deal with the heavy ta:
payers of tue country. It is certaii
ly not wiso to destroy tho men wi
contribute so largely to the revenue
Still this is where Mr. McCulloch
policy tends, and so . long as M
McCulloch is uncertain in his polio
so long will there be uncertainty at
distrust in the business community
What the country wants is a bett
policy and a return to specie pa
ments. To effect this, the first sh
required is that all the gold in tl
country, not needed for payment
i interest abroad, should be kept afio
in tho coniniunity and not hoard?
up by the Government. Let Al
McCulloch announce the amount
bo held in reserve, and then let t'.
surplus be sold regularly in t
market. Let thc gold question, ir
word, take care of itself, and it w
do more to create confidence th
I anything else. Supplied regularly,
will excite no uneasiness. Hoard
up for extreme occasions and thro\
upon the market in time3 of excii
ment, it may only add fuel to t
cry flame it is meant to extingu?s
? Mr. McCulloch's experience of h
summer should not be forgotten. 1
! attempted to control gold, and
almost created a panic. When t
people found Government was sellir
they rushed wildly in and gold we
in a few days from less than 130
near 170. Mr. McCulloch produe
the very effect he desired to obvia
and he stirred up an exc?teme
which has not yet been allayed. T
passions of mon and the panics
people are things which no legislati
cm control. Storms have their la
and hurricanes have their traci
Passions and panics have neith
Mr. McCulloch cannot protect hi
self against either, but he can gua
against them by not arousing the
which ho certainly will do if he
tempts to coerce trade, which 1
laws overr which Mr. McCulloch 1
no control. The price of gold v
be regulated by tho law of sup]
and demand, and Mr. McCulk
may as well expect to make cot?
cheap by withdrawing it from ci
sumption as to mako gold cheap
hoarding it up.

The Impeachment of the President*
.A great deal lias been said lately by
tho radicals about tho impeachment
of tho President. The following well
considered views on the subject are
from tho Albany Evening Journal, a
Republican paper of abilit/:
"If an impeachment were ordered,
it would not be merely the trial of
Andrew Johnson, but also tho arraign?
ment of a party which represents a
very great aud exceedingly active mi?
nority (a large majority, counting the
South in,) of tho American people.
That party accepts tho President as
its leader and exponent. It sustains
his policy with energy and determina?
tion. It defends, upon what it calls
constitutional grounds, the very acts
which are relied upon to justify the
process of arraignment. It says that
any attempt to withdraw this power
from the Executive would, in itself,
bo usurpation. We cannot doubt
that, if articles of impeachment were
to be prepared, the Democracy would
consider itself as having been placed
at the bar-would repudiate tho judg?
ment as thc fulmination o! one party
against the other, and would stand
ready to uphold the President in a
refusal to submit, though that refusal
should result in civil war, as would be
most likely, in the excited state of thc
public mind, certain to prevail.
"Let us imagine tho condition of
affairs: A chief magistrate con?
demned by a court whoso jurisdiction
is denied, at the outset, by several
millions of American citizens. He
refuses to obey process. The Senate
declares him out of office; but he
persists in the exercise of preroga- I
tive. Congress, then, representing
the Government, undertakes to oust
him ; but he summons to his aid what
military he can command, and pre?
pares lo test the question of force.
Meanwhile, the violence aud turbu?
lence engendered at the national capi?
tal, extend through every section of
a country not yet fully recovered from
the delirium of war. Parties are de?
veloped in each town, city add ham- j
let, holding excitedly to the most
pronounced opinions on one side or j
the other, and ready to fight for t?iose |
opinions. A spark might at any mo?
ment drop ink) such a magazine, and
then-what then? We of the North
yet hardly know whakcivil war means,
as they have learned it. who have
seen steroet divided againststreet, and
family against family, law obliterated,
order destroyed, civil securities over?
thrown, and neighbor arrayed in mor?
tal enmity against, neighbor."
.V Good Retort.
Tin: Cincinnati Commercial, having j
taunted Alabama with murdering her
paupers, the Louisville Courier thus !
indignantly retorts upon the foul!
This is generous. How came Ala- \

they have been robbed of the means
to make it. If their lands are uncul?

Thc Supply of Cotton.
Th J following extracts aro from an
able article in tho. November number
of DoBow's Review:
"The causes which are depressing
tho price in tho foreign market, and ,
of course iii our own, aro explained
in tho recent circulars of Liverpool
brokers. They are the stock on
hand, amounting, as before stated ou
the 1st of September, to 800,000
bales; the amount (nearly 500,01IU
bales) of India cotton now at sea for
the British market ; the expected re?
ceipt of several hundred thousand
bales during the fall mouths from
America; and lastly, and principally,
the fact that large amounts of cotton
have been hypothecated-to English
bankers to secure advances during
the recent stringency in the finances
of tho country, which are, being
forced upon the market to satisfy
these advances, added to reports from
America of large crops expected.
Tho intimations iii these circulars
are plain, that these causes of de?
pression will bo merely temporary.
Tho stock on hand will soon be con?
sumed by the homo'and export de?
mand, amonuting now to some
70,000 bales per week. Nomon! cot?
ton is to be shipped from India for
six months to come. The bankers
will soon be satisfied, and there will
be no further reason for urgent sales;
added to which, it is more than pro?
bable that the English money market
will soon become easy again, when
tho speculative demand will be re?
vived, lt is a significant fact, too,
that on the 1st of September there
were at sea for the English market
only 23,000 bales, and that the whole
number in transit, principally from
India, was smaller than had been
known for months before, being less
than 500,000 bales.
"The policy which should, nuder
these circumstances, govern the
course of Southern planters is plain.
Where it is possible, let thom by all
means hold on to their crops until
these causes of temporary depression
have been removed, and especially
until the extravagant reports of the
large crops to be raised by them
during this season have been correct?
ed abroad. These reports have been
industriously started and indus?
triously propagated, from motives
which are easily seen and understood.
The game is being adroitly and sys?
tematically played, with many odds
against the producer, whose toil and
vexation entitle him to the stakes,
and unless he is wary, they will bc
snatched from him. Where stern
necessity does not comped, let him
rather prefer to count his bales than
his greenbacks, until the propitious
time shall come, and as sure as he
lives, he will reap a high reward for
his labors. But if haste and hurry
are to rule the market, it will become
glutted, and ho will get a mere pit?
"Wo think ono thing, at least, will
be conceded by all those who have
had any experience in the cultivation
of cotton; and that is, that unless
those who make it can receive more
remunerating prices than aro now
being paid, the production must ra?
pidly decline; and none will be more
ready to admit this than tlyose who,
having no knowledge of the mode of
its cultivation, have blindly rushed
into the field with visions of the
goldeii harvest they were to reap.
After deducting tho three cents per
pound tax which, of course, must
come out of the pockets of the pro?
ducer, and other expenses incident to
the shipment and sale of bis cotton,
but little is left, to the planter as net
gains at thirty cents per pound,
which, by-the-way, is rather more
than he can expect with the present
market. The average quality will
not be higher than what is styled in
the market 'Ipw middling' or 'good
ordinary,' for which, at the present
rates, he could not expect more than
twenty-seven or twenty-eight cents
per pound, or about twenty cents
net, which can be but barely more
than the cost of production."
BLOOD! IAGO, BLOOD!-According
to reports from Camula, the people
of that province are exceedingly
blood-thirsty. It is said that peti?
tions are coming in front all sections,
asking that no reprieve Ix; grained to
the condemned Fenians. These peo?
ple petitioning for blood arc the
Black Republicans of Canada.
When the Fenians stood on their soil
in line of hattie, their anxiety for
blood was not remarkable. They
carefully staid at home. They did
no fighting. They shed no blood.
But so soon as some Fenians were
captured, and the remainder had re?
treated, then the thirst of the ("ana?
dian Black Republicans for blood
suddenly acquired a vigorous exist?
There is a cordial fellow-feeling
between these petitioners over the
border and our own stay-at-home
patriots. Both are excessively anx?
ious for blood. Neither did a particle
of fighting. Both waited until some?
body else had ended the war, and !
thou their turn came.
"Blood! Iago, blood!" is the cry of j
all cowards, leeches, fanatics and !
sueaks, from the day of Othello to
that of the rebellion in the United i
States, and that of the Fenian inva- j
sion of Canada.-Chicago Times.

GOV. JENKINSON THE A.MENDMKST.
In his message, dov. Jenkins, of
Georgia, discusses thc constitutional
amendment. Of the third aud most
objectionable clause, he says:
The objection now urged against
the amendment is, that it will fail
upon citizens inhabiting one latitude
like nu avalanche from its mountain
perch, crushing where it settles;
whilst upon those of another latitude
it will al%kt unfelt, like a feather
fi?:)ating in siill air.
Tho third section engrafts upon the
fundamental law a new disqualifica?
tion for office, ?State and Federal-a
disqualification not the result of any
act to be done after the adoption of
the amendment, but consummated
before its conception. The *act en?
tailing disqualification for office con?
sists in having heretofore taken an
oath to support the Constitution of
tho United States, and having there?
after engaged in rebellion or insur?
rection against the same, or'"having
given aid and comfort to the enemies
thereof." Considering thc number
of our citizens who have taken the
oath nuder the circumstances set
forth, the number personally engaged
in the war, and the breadth of ground
covered by the words "giving aid and
comfort to the enemies thereof," we
can readily perceive the sweeping
character of thc disqualification. It
is as distinctly proscriptive as if the
persons to ho affected had been ascer?
tained and their names inserted.
Let it be noted, also, t. at the pro?
scribed are all dwellers on one sitie of
a certain geographical line, whilst
the authors of the proscription have
their local habitation ou the other
lt is quite remarkable, moreover,
that there is in the entire section no
saving clause in favor of those who,
in the interval of the cessation of
hostilities and tho adoption of the
amendment, may have received the
amnesty of tho Government. Par?
doned they may have been, but dis?
franchised they will lie.
You are asked to give your consent
that such a fate lie visited upon many
of your best citizens, who have long
enjoyed the public confidence, and
some of whom now fill important
public trusts. Can Georgia spare all
of these from her service?
THE EXCITEMENT IN BALTIMORE.
The Sun, of Friday, says: .
The Governor gives his opinion in
full in relation to the malfeasance of
office on the part of the old Police
Commissioners, anti completely jus?
tifies himself in appointing new oues.
He concludes his decision as follows:
Thc evidence in tho case proves
beyond a doubt that tho Police Com?
missioners have violated tho law and
rendered themselves liable to the
charge of misconduct in office :
1. By creating or permitting to
grow up under their eyes, and with
their complicity, a violent partisan
organization, treating nil as disloyal
who do not adopt the views'of tine
2. By denying the right of the
Governor to entertain jurisdiction of
the charges of official misconduct as
preferred against said Commissioners.
3. By appointing to office, both as
judges of election, special policemen
;vnd clerks, exclusively from their own
party, and in many instances incom?
petent, and in some of the precincts
D? the most disreputable characters,
^nd denying appointments to any
otha class of our citizens.
4. By delegating to thc marshal
ind officers under him the power to
qipoint special policemen, without
Lheniselves inquiring into the qualifi?
cations or moral standing of Aid
officers, thus attempting to throw the
responsibility of bad appointments,
which they were ready to accept,
ipon their subordinates.
fj. By suffering the judges of. elec
;ion to throw aside tho boxes for re
ected ballots, and giving them no
ulvice as to their obligations under
die law to uso th^m, and refusing to
.en^ve them from office for so mani
est a violation of duty.
Every phase of this investigation
thows how utterly regardless the Po?
ico Commissioners have been of their
dain line of duty.
