Safely let things go on for the present aa
they are going, and trust that Democratic
majorities in Congress will, within two or
three years at furthest, correct all the pol Ut?
eri mes aud evils that are . perp?tr?t ed. We
believe that we ourselves have occasionally
ventured to give oomethinff like assurance
to the same effect, but we must confess that
observation aud reflection tend to fill our
minds with deep misgivings and dark fore?
bodings. We do not distinctly or even in?
distinctly see how the actiou of the ag?
gressive spirit of radical audacity and out?
rage in Congress is to be effectually resisted.
No matter how many members of Congress
the Democracy may succeed in electing, the
radical members, having all the arbitrary
and responsible power of au unprincipled
aud unscrupulous majority, will admit just
as many of the olecte'd Democrats as they
please, and not ono Democrat more. To
them the popular voto ia nothing, Weighed
against their political necessities Qr even
their political or personal preferences, it is
less than the dust of thc balance. They
manufacture precisely as large u majority
for themselves as their purposes, whatever
these may be, seem to them to require.
For instance, although the Democracy of
the nation elected, with unquestionable
fairness, considerably more than one-third
of the members of the present Congress,
expecting thereby to prevent, if necessary,
the radical majority from overriding the
Executive vetoes during the curront four
years as they did during the last four, the
radical members excluded so many elected
Dem?crata aud admitted so many unelected
radicals as to secure for themselves a majori?
ty of two-thirds with quite a large margiu
to spare, and would have done this even if,
in order to accomplish it, they had found
themselves under tho necessity of rejecting
twice as many elected Democrats and ad
mitting twice us many unelected radicals af
they did. Ouly by their wishes did thej
measure or think of measuring the exton'
of their bold and undisguised usurpation.'
of power. Worst of all, the people submi
to tbese things, if not with patience, at lea,
with au appearance of it. We eeo no popu
lar outbreak, such as events like those nov
occurring would have created only a litth
while ago. Most of the people seem t<
submit as dumbly as if they were cattle.
Just before the late adjournment of th
House of Representatives, the radical majorit;
cf that body forced iuto it, by their own vob
and not on account of any vote of the peo
pie of South Carolina of whatever color, ;
so-called Representativo of that Stato, 3,00
votes in the miuority in his district. Ol
tho same day, iu defiance of the Louisian
people, white and black, they forced iut
the House, as tho Representative of a di?
trict in that State, a niau 0,000 in the in:
uority. They havo in the House the mos
infamous Election Couiniitteo that coul
have been made np in a body of unequale*
infamy, aud all opposition to the voico c
thc Committee is in vain. And no opportt
nity is allowed for fair discussion or eve
for the semblance of discussion, all electio
cases being decided nuder the stress of th
previous question. Wliilo one Represent!
tive from Louisiana, representiug nobod
but himself, with no constituency whatevt
except himself and tho radical majority <
the House, is voted into a seat, two gent
ino and regular representatives from tl
same State, ono of them elected by a majo
ity of more than 9,000, aud the other I:
more than 30,000, are excluded. Fro
Couuecticut, the radical majority take i
three radical Representatives without eve
certificates of election. The Democracy i
the Union elected botween seventy ai
eighty members, but the radicalism of Coi
gross, by its action in regard to Missoui
Tennessee, Louisiana, and persous electe
from other States, have cut down the D
mocratic strength to between forty ai
fifty. Are such things expected to In
always? If not, when aud how may \
look for them to bo stopped? Is there i
point at which we may venture to hope th
tho nation will rise up and demand i
rights, hurling from power, at whatev

usurped tho Government? Is the ima

The L?gislature of Ohio has granted au?
thority to the oity of Cincinnati to raise, by
loan or otherwise, the sum of ten millions
of dollars, for the purpose of constructing
"Southern roads, or roads which will effect
a close and friendly connection between
Cincinnati.and the South, and the whole
Southern ?yVitorn of rai lr codo. It ia under?
stood that the two objective pointa to be
reached are Knoxville, Tennessee, and De?
catur, Alabama. This action of the Legis?
lature is equivalent to securing an enter?
prise which, besides opening to Cincinnati
the extensive fertile regions of Kentucky
and Teuuessee now inaccessible and remote,
will command directly, and develop greatly,
a trade which Cincinnati now only gets in?
directly and expensively through Baltimore,
Or circuitously and in a very small measure,
by the navigation of the Ohio and tho Mis?
sissippi. This enterprise will form the com?
manding line betveen the trade of the great
lakes and the South, and at no distant day
be the great highway for Cuban and South
American traffic in intertropical products,
which can now only bo supplied by Balti?
more aud New York, and which now goes
to mako up no inconsiderable portion of the
commerce of those great cities. The dis?
tance from Cincinnati to Baltimore by the
present railway connections is greater than
by the proposed hues to Charleston, Port

it is better to go to Baltimore for Ohio lard
and bacon, and to Boston for starch and
Boston crackers made from Ohio wheat, than
to Cincinnati, simply because we aro de?
barred by slow, circuitous routes and exces?
sive rates in transportation. For tho same
reason, it is better to supply Cincinnati with
cotton yarns and sheetings aud shirtings
through New York and Philadelphia. For
the want of just such railroad connections
with the West, nearly tho whole of the do?

POLITICAL CORRUPTION.-Perhaps nothing
shows the political corruption which is pre?
valent in all branches of the Government
moro than the conduct of John P. Hale,
our Minister to the Court of Spain. Of
course, Ministers are allowed to import such
articles as are necessary for their personal
or family use, free of duty. But no one
would suppose they would turn smugglers
and defraud thc Government to which they
are acccredited, as well as disgrace tho Go?
vernment whose representatives they hap?
pen to be. But Mr. John P. Hale, ex
aholitiou candidato for President, and now
Minister to Spain, has none of the scruples
which ordinarily govern men. In October,
1800, he was detected in bringing in 830
pounds of cotton, 1,500 pounds woolen felt,
111,000 pounds of carpeting, 375 pounds of
linen damask, aud TOO pounds of curtain
goods. These goods wore not for his own
I use, as will bo seen by thoir -amount, but
were for a certain commercial company in
I Madrid with which ho is connected, and in
j the profit of which he was to shave. Can
anything be more disgraceful? Ought he
I not, have beon stripped of all his diplomatic
I privileges, and tried as any other foreigner
I would be, nuder the laws of Spain, for the
