Wednesday Horning, Oct. 21, 1868.
In tho severo political contest of
. Tuesday last, the Democrats of the
North made a bravo but ineffectual
straggle for the supremacy of Con?
stitutional principles, but were over?
come. As matters stand, we can
scarcely hope for such a change in I
Pennsylvania and Ohio as will givo
these States to tho Democracy on ?
the Ides of November. Indiana is.
however, still debatable ground, and
the same, indeed, may be said of Ne?
braska. With these States added to
. the Democratic list, there is yet hope
.-?or*-ihe success of Seymour and Blair,
. and no effort should be spared on
'tho part of our people to place them
. selves right on the record.
The conjectures of tho New York
Herald, of the 13th, as to tho proba?
ble complexion of Grant's Cabinet
and administration, forcibly recalls
to miud the old-fashioned advice as
. to the necessary preliminary indis?
pensable to a proper preparation of
hare for tho table, which we would
commend to tho consideration of that |
journal. It is unquestionably truo,
that tho Democracy failed to accom?
plish all that they hoped for in the
recent elections; but it is equally
indubitable that they did accom?
plish a great deal-more than suffi?
cient to satisfy even the most un?
yielding partisan that a most power?
ful minority (should tho result fail to
prove them a majority) aro unccn
.querably opposed to the election of
?that candidnln whose policy the
Herald attempts to foreshadow. Even
if Grant be elected, wo may still find
some silver lining to the cloud. Our j
prosperity, as a people, depends
much more on the management of j
our State, municipal and individual
?concerns, than on our Chief Magis?
trate, whoever he may be. Lot us
<take courage, do right, and leave the
rest to God.
Where would the party of uuivcrs
-al suffrage be without disfranchise?
ment? Just figure it up: Ail Virgi?
nia disfranchised, 170,000 votes; all
Texas, 65, OOO j all Mississippi, 70,000;
-in Missouri, 50,000: in Tennessee,
100,000; in the so-called reconstruct?
ed States, 150,000; total, 005,000.
Then, when they havo taken this out
.""by disfranchisement, they, by negro
suffrage, juggle *n 750,000, making
in all a difference of 1,355,000 votes.
Can an electron so carried bo con?
sidered a fair one? Is this the voice
of the people?
A BEAUTIFUL SENTIMENT.-We clip
.tho following beautiful sentiment
from an exchange:
"Sorrow sobers us nud makes the
mindgeninl; and in sorrow we love
and trust our friends moro tendorly,
and tho dead becomo dearer to us;
and, just as tho stars shine out in the
nights, so there aro blessed faces that
look at us in our grief, though before
thoir features were fading from our
recollection. Suffering! Let no
man dread it too much, because it is
better for him, and it will holp to
make him sure of being immortal. It
is not in the bright, happy days, but
only in the solemn night,"that othor
worlds aro to be seen shining in the
long, long distances. And it is in
Borrow--the night of the soul-that
we seo tho farthest, and know our?
selves natives of infinity} and sons
>nnd daughters of the Most High."

THE CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT.
Mr. Adams, in bis Charleston speech,
approved the unanimous rejection by
the Southern States of the Constitu?
tional amendment-or, mare point?
edly, their refusal io disfranchise
their leaders. By BO doing, tho Rich?
mond Dispatch assorts, Mr. Adams
but proves his own ch Hon and
noble feelings in approving that not
of the Southern people. They knew
that they had to submit to mortifying
and oppressive terms, and they felt
that the rejection of the Constitu?
tional amendment would probably bo
followed by measures certainly not
less odious; but they could not be
mndo to co-operate in disfranchising
their fellow-citizens. Mr. Adams
appreciates tho motive, and approves
tho act, like a refined and high-spi?
rited gentleman as ho is. Even Mr.
Wilson, of Massachusetts, with all
his bitter partisanry, confessed that
he was not surprised at the rejection
of tho Coustitutioual amendment bj*
thc Southern States, and that he
would have dono exactly as they did,
had ho been in their place. It was a
cruel thing in the radicals to submit
to the vote of the Southern people a
proposition which they could not
adopt without dishonor and disgrace;
and, knowing that, in rejecting it,
they had only acted tho part of
honesty and good faith, the policy
afterwards pursued of punishing them
for not adopting it, was a reGuement
of cruelty. Tho rejection of the
amendment will, the Dispatch thinks,
in time, be universally considered an
act deserving the applause of tho
NEW YORK UNDERGROUND RAIL?
ROAD.-Mr. W. B. Duncan, who
sailed from Liverpool on tho Scotia,
on the 3d instant, brings out thc con?
tract just concluded with thc engi?
neers who built tho underground
railroad in London, for the con?
struction of one in New York under
the Into act of tho Assembly. The
Now York press seem to favor tho
rapid completion of tho work, now
that it has become a fixed fact. They
quarreled fiercely over it pending tho
passago of tho bill, as they do upon
every local question that involves
dollars and cents; but now they urge
tho Board of Directors to at once ap?
prove the contract and push on tho
work, to the end that tho question of
practicability may bo at ouco settled.
Tho tunnel is to run in a nearly
straight lino from a point near tho
City Hall, under Union Square, and
thence to Harlem River, a distance
of seven miles. Tho line, like that
of London, is lo bc tapped at such
depot points as seem to afford great?
est facilities for passengers, and to
bring in all the advantages aud im?
provements-as to vibration, light
and consumption of smoke-that ex?
perience has taught in Loudon.
Tho undertaking to tunnel savon
miles, under tho heart of a great city,
is an immense one; but with energy,
and the vast means at disposal, diffi
culties seem to melt away. Its suc?
cess would be a great boon to over?
crowded New York. It would be an
immense relief to choked Broadway,
and a vast saving of time over the
lumbering omnibus system of to?
day. The business man from Har?
lem could light his segar at tho
bridge and be in Wall street beforo it
was half out.
"THE WAY or THE TRANSGRESSOR
IS HARD."-In Decembor, 18G3, Wil?
liam W. Treadwell, a 3roung banker
of Hudson, Michigan, borrowed over
SGO.UOO from banks iu Cleveland,
Chicago, Detroit and other cities,
and disappeared with tho money. In
February, 18G8, he appeared at
Mansfield, Ohio, under au assumed
name. Hound his wifo wero arrested
there, but Treadwell's father-in-law,
Hester, who was ono of the party,
got off with thc money. Treadwell
was taken to Michigan, sentenced,
and lodged in jail. Having secretly
obtained $2,GOO from his wife, Tread?
well escaped from jail with a horse
thief named Cowell, and was soon
ofter murdered by Cowell for the
money. Tho body of Treadwell was
found in tho woods, and his murderer
was arrested and hanged. Hester,
having returned home, was arrested
os a thief, but escaped. A hired
woman having soon after discovered
Hester, Mrs. Hester and Mrs. Tread?
well counting largo sums of money,
Hester was again arrested, tried, and
mnlcted in $38,500. Tho caso affords
another illustration of tho saying,
' 'The way of tho transgressor is hard. "
Treadwell was murdered, his murder?
er executed, and the father-in-law,
who is supposed to havo prompted
Treadwell to commit the crime, is in
tho hands of justice, and compelled
to relinquish his ill-gotten wealth.

that declarations are openly made by pcr

The State Government, of which I am
tho Executive head, is not only 'le facto
but de jure, and commands tho allegiance

independent of Federal legislation and of

its honor are in its own keeping; and the
rights granted and conferred by it can
only be affected or subverted by a chango

in the event of resistance or assault, they
are directed to apply to tho nearest milita?

"BEE STOKE"-IT IS LIKE THE BEE
STORE.-C. F. Jackson surely has a
run of trade; his place is crowded
each day, and his assistants are as
busy as bees.
NEW YORK, July 1, 18GS.
DEAR SIR: In your paper of last
week, yon or ono of your corres?
pondents says that Dr. Diako is not
tho originator of tho celebrated
PLANTATION BITTERS, and that they
were manufactured and sold by one
Pedro Marielle, an old Spaninrd, iu
tho Island of St. Thomas, over forty
years ago, as every old sea captain
can testify. Now, sir, I can certify
to tho above as being true, for I havo
followed the seo for over forty years,
most of tho timo doing business with
the West Indies. These same Bitters,
differently put up and named, were
brought to my notice on my first trip
to the Island of St. Croix, for a cargo
of rum, and for years and years after,
my ship's stores were never without
them. I always supplied my family
and many of my neighbors with
them, and can truly say a better
Bitters and Tonio, is not mado in all
the world. Yours truly.
Capt. HENRY WENTZ.
