Tho" President, in his easy mood and
his constitutional tepathy^ is disposed to
think that we "oro getting on in ? na?
tional way rather pleasantly than other?
wise, j Aa Boon aa tho whole country aim'1

all will ho. woll, and ?ha country may
go 6n:. its-((tray tf?joloing. We regret
that wo oonoot share in the President's
rono-colorp'd Views pf the present and
futuro of this cou airy. It may be well
for ? io oso Who' are tn?, to think as the
President thinks, but those who are
POW#? desire a change. We do not con
oar with the President in his views as to
tho satisfactory condition of the coun?
try. One portion, at least, of it, could
be greatly improved. Fraud, corruption
and mis-rule prevail in many sections of
tho South, and we bold that everywhere
a reform is greatly needed as to the way
in wliioh tho publie affairs are managed,
and tho military ig encroaching upon
the oivildepartments of the Government.
We hold that the situation might be
greatly ohauged for the better.
OUR TERRITORIAL AREA.-The area of
the organized territories of the United
States, including Alaska, is greater than
that of all the States which have been
admitted into the Union. There are
nearly 1,000,000,000 aores of land in
these territories, Bnd not over 50,000
white inhabitants. In natural resources,
this territorial .domain is richer than the
area included in the States. The latter
contain cay 40,000,000 settlers, and even
these would hardly be near enongh for
neighborhood purposes. Railroads will
op?ii tip/' the country end bring popula?
tion. What a magnificent country to

T?a NiOTH Oar?TJs.-Though the re?
sults of tho census of 1870 ore not fully
col?Bot?d, enough' hos been ascertained
to: establish ' that the population of the
United'States Id' ?bout 39,000,000. The
NeW York Post estimates that the princi?
pal change in the proportionate political
power of the country will be the transfer
of nearly one-third of that now held by
?New England to the States bordering on
the Mississippi valley. The Southern
States are saved from the loss of political
power by the act of emancipation.
COLORED RADICALS REBUKED.-The
negroes have nominated one of their
own color os candidate for a vacant
Senatorship in Pennsylvania; whereupon
the Philadelphia Press reminds the
colored people that the Republican party
have "again and again risked much for
the colored man, and often the risk has
culminated in loss." It adds: "There
is no justice now in asking that the Re?
publican party should in any case assume
any special risk, by any nomination
turning on the question of color-a
question now happily sunken and out of
It gently hints that this colored candi?
date should get out of the way, that his
running will jeopardize the election, and
that "a defeat of the Republicans in the
special election, through any mistaken
action of the colored voters, would go
far towards rendering it impossible to
eleot colored men to official positions
The "Am I not a mau and brother?"
theory receives a severe blow from the
hands of Dr. Bird, an eminent English
physician, now resident in Italy, who
has been making a series of experiments
upon the blood of various races. He
affirms, ns the result of his investiga?
tions, a marked difference in its condi?
tion; the blood of the Bengalcso con?
taining fewer red corpuscles than tho
European, and that of tho negro still
less. He argues from this, different
grades in physical organization, and
proves the Caucasian to be altogether a
higher and entirely different typo of
mankind from the inhabitants of African
