How IT WORKS.-To fi od your tho?
rough-bred Radical, you muet go South.
Nowhere elso does be exhibit in full force
his natural and sublime contompt for
propriety-tho matchless egotism which
underlies his politios and oven bis parti?
sanship. Your Northern Radical, com?
pared to your Southern, is as a raw oob
compared witb a blooded courser. The
former hos plenty of the raw material in
him, but it bas to be developed, crossed,
interbred through many degrees, before
yon produce the stock which cane?me
to time on tho Radical race-course South.
"Tho boy is father to the man," eo the
Radical boy North ib father to the Radi?
cal mun South-thc son being BO much
more mature and vigorous than thc
father, as a man is moro BO thau a boy.
Wo had two illustrations of this differ?
ence in the Senate on Tuesday last. Se?
nator Sawyer, of South Carolina, asked
consent tc convert the Sonate Chamber
into a hustings, iu order to enable bim
to reply to Senator Trumbull's speech at
the liberal Republican mass meeting in
New York. But the Sonate was saved
the shame of this unheard-of exhibition
of partisanship by the opposition of
Hannibal Hamlin. Ou the same day, a
vote was taken on the question of ad?
mitting the carpet-bagger, Abbott, of
North Carolina, to bis seat. No one has
ever dared assert that he was really
elected by the Legislature; and his claims
were sternly repudiated by the Senate
by au overwhelming vote, only ten votes
being cast in his favor. Of this number,
fivo were cast by Southern Senators.
This is double the average of the affirm?
ative vote of the North and West.
From all of which, we have drawn a
conclusion of grave import. If the
devil were commissioned to manufacture
a boss devil to take his sceptre or share
it, there is no doubt that he would im?
prove so much on tho original pattern,
that ho would turn out such a monster of
villainy, that he would invent, iu short,
n devil so devilish an would drive all the
sinners in tho world into the bosom of
the church for protection. Such a mass
of cussedness would disgust the world,
and convert it in the same manner as
thorough-bred Radicalism has nearly
converted the South iuto a unit of libe
ralisni. Iudeed, the conversion is com?
plete, if we omit the office-holders and
office-seekers and their colored dupes,
