And after paying the debt oil entirely,
there would only be $G00,000,000 more

3. That thelonger Radicalism rules,
the more enormous will be the public
debt, and the more insolent will the
Radical officials become.
1, That the object and aim of the
Radical leaders is to destroy the Con

great centralized government, under
which the rich will be made richer
and tho poor poorer.

sinks, the country rises! Remember
this, and vote the Democratic ticket.

The Fable of the Wandering Jew.
The legend of the Jew ever wan
dering and never dying has spread
over many European countries. The
accounts, however, as all tables, do
not agree. One version is this : When
Jeus was led to death, oppressed by
the weight of the cross, he wished to
rest himself a little near the gate be
fore the house of a shoemaker named
Ahasuerus. This ' man, however,
sprang forth and thrust him away
Jesus turned toward him, saying, "I
shall rest, but thou ehalt move on un
til I return." And from that time he
has had no rest, and obliged inces
santly to wander about. Another
version is that Mathias Parisiensie, a
monk of the thirteenth century
When Jesus was led from the tribunal
of Pilatusto death, the door-keeper
named Cartanlius, pushed him from
behind with his feet, saying, "Waik
on Jesus, quickly; why dost thou tar
ry?" Jesus looked at him gravely,
Tind said: "1 walk on, but thou shalt
tarry till I come." And this man,
still alive, wanders from place to
place, in constant dread of the wrath
to come. A third legend adds, that
this wandering Jew falls sick every
hundred years, but recovers and re
news his strength ; hence It is that,
even after so many centuries, he doas
not look much older than a septunge
narian. Thus far the legends.
Xot one of the ancient authors
makes even mention of such an ac
count. The first who reports some
such thing is ft monk of the thirteenth
century, w'heu, as is known, the world
was filled to disgust with pious fiction,
However, the story has spread so far.
that it has become a proverb "He
runs about like a wandering Jew."
There are not persons wanting who
assert to have even seen the wander
ing Jew. But when their evidence is
examined by the test of historical
credibility, it is found that some im
postor had made use of this fable to
impose upon simple-minded people
for some purpose of hia own. How
ever, the legend is not altogether un
true, there is a wandering Jew who
roves about Europe.in every country
This imperishable being is prejudice
"Equality Before the Law"—What It
Means Under Negro Domination at
On Friday last, at Portsmouth, Vir
ginia, a white man named Perkins
was hung for the crime of rape, while
his negro associate in the infamous
offense, named Jefferson, had his sen
tence commuted to imprisonment for
life. It is not the hanging in this
case, but the failure to hang, that ren
ders it worthy of special note. Both
villains deserved tho fate to which
the law had consigned them. On the
night of the 9th of June they entered
the house of a widow lady named
Elizabeth Ford, and in her presence
perpetrated the outrage upon her
daughter. Next day they were arres
ted, and were subsequently tried.con
victed, and sentenced to suffer the
extreme penalty of the law, on the
l)th of October. Perkins was a native
of Wakefield, New Hampshire, and
early in the war enlisted in the Sec
ond regiment from that State. He
was present at the first battle of Ma
nassas ana served tnrougu the greater
part of the war. All we know of
Jefferson is that he is a negro. On
Thursday last the radical Governor
Wi lls ot Virginia commuted the sen
teiii-cof tho latter, and on the follow
ing day the former was hung, as be
fore stated. No reason is assigned in
the order from the Governor for thi
discrimination except that the negro
"is a tit sui jec t for clemency." Why
ne is a lit subject lor ciemoncv wo
will allow the New York Herald to
explain. It says: "Tho commuta
tion was aud is regarded by many in
a political light. Jt is openly asserted
that the fact of the District giving a
Congressional negro majority ot over
seven thousand votes contributed
largely to influence his Excellency in
me step ne nas taxen. 1'erKins was
a northern man, or 'carpet-bagger,
ana this was also urged us a reason
why he was not spared. That both
men deserved the severest penally the
law could inflict in atonement for
their crimes no person will deny, and
tne apparently one siaea dealing out
of executive clemency in the case of
the negro demands that some expla
nation be given to account for the s-
crimination of the Governor in his
distinction between the black and
white man, both of whom, were im
plicated in the commission of the same
ouence." v nen it is.boruo in mind
that the abhorrent crimo of which
Perkins and Jefferson were proven
guiltp is one of frequent perpetration
iy tne DiacKs at tne bouth, the action
of Governor Wells, which is charged
and not denied to have been taken for
local partisan effect, can not be too
severely condemned. It is a practical
illustration of the fact that "equality
before the law." as the law is admin
istered by Radical ' officials where ne
gro has been made' the dominant
power by Congress, means a visitation
of the extrene penalty to white men
and immunity to black men.

with his greenbacks thus obtained,

By this process he made sure of re

He took care to exact the further

THE NATIONAL FINANCES.
The Fearful Augmentation of the Public
LETTER FROM HON. R. J. WALKER.
On account of the great authority of Mr.
Walker in what respects Government fin
ances, we take great pleasure in laying be
fore the public an extract of a letter from
him, addressed to a citizen of the city of
Philadelphia. The letter is dated from
Washington City on the 6th instant. Mr
Walker writes as follows :
"In reply to your inquiry, I would say
that the table of the public debt of the Unit
ed States at various periods, referred to in
the National Istelligxscee of yesterday
morning, is accurate in all respects, liavin;
been taken from the books of the United
States Treasury. You ask me if it is a fact
that the annual expenditures of the Govern
ment has been increased as therein stated,
over forty-six millions of dollars, (fi6,05C,-
559,) by an augmentation to that extent, of
the yearly interest in currency, of the publie
debt since the 30th of ApriL 18G5. I an
swer that it is an indisputable fact, and I
will add that from a careful consideration
of the condition of the Treasury, it is clear
that this annual interest will go on increas
ing. It is possible that there may be a small
reduction of the publie debt last month, but
this reduction, if made, will be m debts
bearing mainly no interest, or in war claims
withheld, while the debt bearing coin inter
est will be augmented.
"That there is an increased yearly expen
diture, exceeding forty-six millions of dol
lars since April 30, 1865, to meet the aug
mented interest (as currency) of the public
debt, is ceetus. This is the true test of
our financial condition, and, to me, it seems
certain that nothing but a total change of
policy will save us from national bankrupt
cy. This change of policy must be based
upon a vast decrease of our annual expendi
tures, as recommended in my financial letter
of November last. We must abolish the
Freedmen's Bureau; we must recall the ar
my from the South, and reduce it to a mod
erate peace establishment. We must termi
nate there the joint rule of the negro and
the bayonet, and, slavery and secession hav
ing been forever abandoned, permit the
Southern States, in obedience to the Feder
al Constitution, to govern themselves as be
fore the rebellion. The fact of this vast
increase of the annual interest of the public
debt is not a disputed question. It rests on
transcripts from the books of the Treasury,
and can not be denied. This item of ex
penditures for the increased annual interest
of the public debt is nearly equal to double
the entiie yearly expenditures of Mr. Polk's
Administration before the Mexican war,
and nearly equal to its subsequent annual
expenditures, including tlie war aud heavy
payments for the principal and interest of
the public debt. But even if we take the
Oth of Kovembcr last, the date of the last
annual report of the Secretary of the Trea
sury, we Cud the increased annual interest,
as currency, of the public debt, $26,574,
320 from the 30th of November last (18C7)
to the 31st of August, 1868, being an aug
mentation at the rate of three millions of
dollars a month, or thirty-six millions of
dollars a year. At this rate of increased
annual expenditure for interest only on the
30th of November, 1869, a little over a year
this single item of 3'early disbursements
would reach seventy -two millions of dollars.
It is clear, that the radical policy leads rap
idly and certainly to national bankruptcy,
and that nothing can save U3 but a changi
of men and measures,"

In March, 1844, the State of Texas
was admitted into the Union by act
of Congress, and made a sovereign
State in the Union, and entitled to all
the lights and privileges of any other
State. No competent authority has
ever attempted to repeal that act of
Congress. Texas, theD, Is legally and
rightfully a State within the Union
and entitled to all the rights of any

does General Reynolds issue an order
of which this is a portion ?

An Awful Indictment—A "True Bill."
We condense from a long and able
article in tne National Intelligencer,
these charges against tho Black Re
1. They sent to the Peace Congress
18C1, a sufficient number ot desper
ate and reckless partisans (resolved to
make civil war for the sake of enrich
ing themselves by furnishing supplies)
to defeat the purpose of the Conven
tion, and disappoint the sacred hopes
of the people !
2. They inculcated, with terrible
effect upon the excited passions then
prevalent, the murderous sentiment
that "blood-letting would do the coun
try good !"
3. They called a meeting of State
Governors to overrule Lincoln and
his Cabinet and force a war, whether
the South should fire upon Fort Sum
ter or not !
-1. Thpy proclaimed every where,
with a falsehood never equalled, that
they called for troops for the sole pur
pose of maintaining sacred law I
5. They voted with villainous una
nimity, in both Houses of Congress,
the celebrated declaratory resolutions
of the 22d of July, 18G1, in which the
United States disclaimed before man
kind every object how sought by the
Radical party. To the people this
imposing resolution was offered, and
it was accepted by every one of them
a3 true.' On the faith of it, they vol
unteered by hundreds of thousands
to repair the disasters of Bull Run,
and to save the Union !
6. They called John C. Fremont
from Europe for the purpose of mak
iner him dictator in the event that
Lincoln should fail to do the most at
rocious acta required of him.
7. They organized a commission
with a view to select some scoundrel
of sufficient audacity to seize and
wield the whole power of Govern
ment for the enslavement of the peo
ple. Fremont, Lane, Hunter, Banks
aud Burnside, were among the men
spoken for this purpose !
8. They secretly rejoiced at every
great defeat of the Union arms, be
cause as one of the principal expo
nents of this misrule said, after the
seven days' battle, "if MeClellan had
taken Richmond it would have put
the Republican party back twenty
9. They continue to this day the
nauseous affectation of a veneration
for Abraham Lincoln, in whose place
the prospect of getting the remorseless
and unprincipled man they thought
to make of Andrew Johnson, inspired
tnem with secret and general joy at
his assassination !
All of which is true as God lives !
The appearance of our noble candi
date for the Presidency is thus de
scribed as he took the chair in Tam
many Hall: "Seymour is dressed in
the ld stylo shad-belly coat, which is
buttoned across his chest, leaving open
a diamoned-shaped portion of irre
proachable white linen, and a very
neatly arranged.black neck-tie of mod
erate dimensions. The head is well
shaped and set gracefully back on a
firm pair of shoulders, and the lower
part of the face, below the eyes, is al
most a perfect oval. The eyes are of
a brilliant brown color and shine like
diamonds beneath a firmly balanced
forehead, which is bald, the baldness
extending back as far as the back part
ol the skull. The mouth is pleasant
and mobile, and when Seymour smiles
at you the feeling produced is a genial
one. This is a cultured man of free
tastes and high purposes, a man of
elegant diction and also of powerful
analysis. The dress of Seymour is in
perfect accordance with good taste,
for Horatio Seymour is a gentleman
first, last and all the time. When he
makes a gesture it is dignified, and
yet graceful. His voice Is correct in
its intonations, full, and, when ap
proaching a climax, resonant. The
hands, when lifted in air, are white
like a woman's, a id the fingers slen
derly shaped. When speaking.
all eyes and ears are turned his
way, and his influence on a large
body of men is magnetic and thor
ough. His long and steadfast adhe
rence to Democratic principles, his
persistence in the right, through good
and ill-report, has mada the name ct
Horatio Seymour a dear one to all
Democrats. To the humblest man in
the party he is courteous, polite and
kind in his manner. His knowledge
of parliamentary law is full. His
manner ol recognizing a delegate on
the floor is all that could be desired
and no man in the house ever looks
at him for five minutes without feel
ing that he is worthy of being the
chairman of the Convention.

The September number of Lippixoott's
Magazine, which we have just received,
contains interesting information upon tho
ambiguity of our species. The writer says:
The subject of the immense antiquity of
man, which, of late years, has attracted
great attention in Europe, has, with great
propriety been taken up by the American
Antiquarian Society of Worcester, Mass,
aud it forms the main topic treated of in the
report of tho Council of that Society, which
has iust been trablished. The conclusion
reached is that the primitive man of Europe
appears to have been a similar being, phys
ically, mentally and socially, to the primi
tive man of America, whom we are now
supplanting; and that in this country we are
thus carried back by analogy to a remote
pre-historic period, whose phenomena we
should bo better able to investigate and de
termine than any people less favorably sit
In the appendix to tlie" same report occurs
the following interesting passage :
"It is a scientific theory that, by the coni
cal movement of the polar axis of the earth,
which causes the precession of the equinox
es, the northern and southern hemispheres
are subjected to influences increasing or di
minishing their average temperature. When
the northern half of the globe is growing
warmer, the southern half will, in an equal
proportion, be growing colder, and vice
versa. Tho entire revolution has been cal
culated to require twenty-five thousand scv
en hundred and ninety-one years. It has
been noticed that, since the middle of the
thirteenth century, the climate of all north
ern countries has gradually become colder,
and the line of tropical vegetations has re
treated toward the south; while the culture
of the soil has actually been abandoned in
latitudes where it was once practicable and
productive. Thus, in the twelfth century,
agriculture, commerce and letters flourished
in Iceland, which was the seat of a prospe
ous civilization. Communities of colonists
existed in Greenland, having villages and
churches, and cultivated fields, like those of
Norway and Sweden; but they were cut off
from all communication with the rest of the
world, and probably destroyed by the accu
mulation of ice. which has for centuries
prevented approach to that side of the coun
trv. The claziers of the Alps, it is well
known, are extending. Roads, pastures,
and even sites of habitation, formerly used
and occupied, are now covered with perpet
ual snow. The advance of the glaziers
however, is not continuous, but dependent
upon the character of the seasons. Ia very
dry years less snow is crested, and the line
of frost even retreats; but in each successive
generation the limit of vegetation is percep
"The inference is that, in the northern
hemisphere, another period of arctic tem
perature over nearly its -boie extent, is ap

influence have not yet been ascertained.
A Tiger Among Baboons.
The peculiar barking cry of the
Cape baboon frequently hailed us as
we passed along, but these animals do
not care to show themselves if they
can avoid it. They are, if left alone,
timid and harmless creatures, but
when wounded and at bay, know how
to use their hands and teeth. They
will even combine on emergencies
against a common enemy, as in the
case of the Cape tiger. This tiger is
particularly fond of young baboons,
but it must be very young to suit his
teeth. To get it he will wsit for days
together on the mountains, and often
succeeds In snatching a youngster al
most out of its mother's arms. The
distracted mother, with piercing
shrieks, then lays the case before the
council of her people, who, If the
tiger has not made his escape, fall on
him in a body and invariably succeed
In killing him. Tho battle-field is
recognized by bones and pieces of skin
of both tiger and baboon ; not more

those of their own kindred whom the
tiger has killed In the conflict. I re
member being roused one night at a
place some inland, by the most un
earthly shrieks, mingled with the
roar of a large animal in rage and
pain. It was explained to me next
morning that what I had heard was
the tumult usually produced on occa
sion of monkey stealing, and that
propably the tiger had been caught
red handed and received lynch law.

[From the New York Tribune.]
A Letter from Thaddeus Stevens.
The following was made public the first
time on Wednesday night :
Wasuikgtos, Saturday, June 27, '68.
Dsak Sin I regret I can not ;pcak favo
bly of the Chicago platform. It is like
most of tho Republican platforms for the .
past six years, lame and cowardly. For ,
twenty years before the war, the North act-:
ed like poltroons in all their legislative con
troversies with slaycry. They have much
more physical than moral courage. . Had it
not been for a few determined men in 1861,
the Union would have been dissolved. The .
Republicans have, as I said, great physical .
dourage, and, when driven to the test, will
always conquer. They are as timid now as
they were before the war for trade might
suffer. What did the bold men of Chicago
gain by selling the right of suffrage ! They
tell me that the loyal blacks at the South, '
earned it by the aid they gave us, but that
when they have not made that purchase,, the
right of suffrage remains at the pleasure of
the States, Now, the Republican party
knows that the Declaration of Independence
contains no such foJBy, no such wickedness.
I treat every man as a man, and the right :
of universal suffrage as an inalienable right,
long suspended from neglect, and r.ow for the
first time since the forming of tfce Constitu
tion of the United States, capable of enforce-
ment. You insult the shades of Adams,
Otis, Jefferson and their compeers by talk
ing to them about bartering tho imperisha- -ble
right of the elective ftanchise. Why
not traffic or sell their life, liberty ana souls? .
This doctrine reduces all men to soulless
6laves or corpses. This question must be
met; the sooner it is done the more success
ful it will be. There is one consolation.
The Democrats can't find as good candidates
but, from constant and long practice, will
make a mueh more villainous platform. It
is vain for the Republican party to hope to
maintain their liberty by skulking. Let
tliem be bold and honest, and they will
learn that "Heaven etill rules." Let them
be cowardly and mean, and they will receive
their reward with the "hewers of wood and
drawers of wator."
I am, sir, very respectfully, your obedi
De Tocqueville, in his wonderful book,
"Democracy in America,'" states that "an
tipathy to the negro Ls much stronger among
a white population and where slavery never
calL-m is not love for the nejro, but hatred
of the white man sought to bo degraded by
the black. Therefore, the proposition of
Radicalism in Missouri to make negr voters
is the more offensive. If the good of the
negro was sought to be promoted the calami-
ty might be b:rue; since no such consumma
tion is contemplated," the white race should
resist the measure by every agency which
God and nature place within their reach. 1
