THE NEW BEDEIAIOS.-The clap?
trap cry of the radicals in stigmatiz?
ing all who do not agree with thom
in politics as "rebels," is nearly nsed
up. They themselves have lately
been guilty of so many acts savoring
of rebellion, tint it is qnitc losing its
force and beginning to have a dis?
tasteful, homely significance. Tho
epithet has, however, been so service?
able, and is altogether so handy, thoy
cannot quito afford to part with it,
and have consequently invented "a
new rebellion," which, according to
their loading journals, is now in
active preparation throughout the
land. Tho formation of tho Ku
Klux Klau; the refusal of the South
to swallow willingly tho reconstruc?
tion measures; the attempt of Presi?
dent Johnson to appoint his own
Cabinet, oil aro pointed at iu a know?
ing mysterious manner as evidences
of tho conspiracy. It is not the first
time tho robber has concealed his
own crimo by crying "stop thief."
The rebellion only visiblo to thoir
prophetic eyes in the dim future, is
in active operation now. When a
foresworn Senate deposes, on tho
most trivial charges, tho head of a
nation, to set up ono of its own num?
ber in his stead, it does no more
than the English Parliament did
when it tried Charles I, or the French
Assembly whou it decapitated Louis
XVI. Both of these bodies were
clearly guilty of rebellion, and though
the offenco in either case has by
somo historians been palliated, by
none has tho crime ever been denied.
"Au open renunciation of tho au?
thority of tho Government" consti?
tutes rebellion, according to lexico?
graphers. The permanent authority
of our Government is conceded to
rost in tho Constitution. This the
radicals aro endeavoring to set aside,
and according to tho simplest modo
of reasoning they aro "rebels," and
their cause is "rebellion."
[2feio Orleans Times.
CONGRESS SOWING THE WIND TO
BEAP THE WHIRLWIND.-Mr. Bout
well, in his flimsy dribble on the
impeachment case, by courtesy called
an argument, gives us his view of the
character of tho Government of tho
United States. As this view is sub?
stantially the same as that put forth
in tho House, some time since, by
Mr. Bingham and other of the ma?
nagers, we must suppose it to be tho
view of the Government that is to bo
held by the new party that will rulo
iu the land when impeachment has
been safely carried through. Ac?
cording to this viow, Congress is tho
Government-Congress is tho begin?
ning, the middlo and the end, and
there is nothing else but Congress.
As for the President, he is a political
dummy, aud the Supremo Court is
ouly a name. If this is the view
that ?3 to bo takeu in the future, let
it bo definitely understood on all
hands. We are going into an elec?
tion that may put power into new
hands, and tho men who rulo in Con?
gress must be content to accept the
consequences of principles they set
in motion. If thorois not a Govern?
ment of law-if there is no power
above tho breath of tho mass as
expressed from time to time in a
popular assembly-they who have
cast dowu and destroyod the protect?
ive power of tho law must not com?
plain if the consequences of that
course fall heavily on themselves.

A PARALLEL CASE* TO In TKOVATORE. |
A uJost curious occurrence happened I
in the Prussian Providence of Posen. |
Somo days ago, a poor woman foll
sick, and as she felt sho was near her
end, sho sent for tho priest. Sho
subsequently confessed to him that
she, about thirty years ago, having
been delivered of a boy, she substi?
tuted her own child for the child of a
Countess, in whoso employ sho was.
Neither tho nurse nor the Countess
bocamo aware of the exchange, and
thus it remained until to-day. Her ?
own boy was educated as a Count,
and has married tho daughter of a
very proud nobleman, while tho r$al
Count, having grown up in poverty,
went out to service, married, and is J
now living not lar from his princely i
estato of Komornik, with his own
children. Tho woman said she could
not die without confessing this sin. '

thorities, and an investigation has

A FLOATING CEMETERV.-A ghastly
spectacle was presented in the river
below St. Louis, on Saturday, 18th
inst. During thc cholera Inst sum?
mer, a largo number of the bodies of
the victims of the opidemio were
buried by fch6 ?itv on Arsenal Island,
a short distance below the city. The
river has been for some time gradual?
ly wearing the island away, and
Friday tho water reached tho trench?
es in which the bodies were buried,
and washed somo fifty or moro coffins
down the stream. Twenty-four
corpses wero recovered, aud mea?
sures taken to secnro tho remainder.
Those still on tho island will also be

To MAKE A CANDLE BERN ALL
NIGHT.-It is said that when, as in
cases of sickness, a dull light is
wished, or when matches aro mislaid,
put finely powdered salt on thc cau?
dle till it reaches tho black part of
tho wick. In this wnj', a mild and
a steady light may be kept through
thc night, by a small piece of caudle.
THE FRUIT CROP.-Tho fruit crop
at tho West, so far, is said to be sub?

snow and frost was supposed to have
destroyed tho germs, but as a geucral
thing they escaped, because not far
