From the Newark Journal.
From tbe Imperialist, edited under the
auspices and at the cost of the Secretary of
the Navy, Mr. Adolph Borie, we extract
the folio wine :
"An imperialism ia now possible, which
shall still leave tbe people free, as well as
secure, and make a nation happy and con
tented, as well as respectable."
f ins loornal takes lor its motto the fa
mous exclamation of Napoleon, ''The Em
pire is Peace," and for its model the imper
ialism of France. , A great many very bon
est, short sighted people r'.dicule the move
ment, but ia the condition pi the country
to day, aiid, with the tenipir'df 1 the public
blind, trained as It has been to submission
and acquisescence in every despotic act, a
complete chance in our whole system of
government mieht be effected in twenty
four hours without the slightest eitort at re
sistance. A people who have submitted to
so many outrages and usurpations are pre
pared to submit to a great many - more-
Human nature is the same sort of stuff now
that it was two or five thousand years ago.
Selfishness is the most prominent thread
that runs through the warp and woof of its
texture. Tlie cunning and the aspiring
lex!.ure- . .i ne cunning anu . uie aspiring
know bow to; promote., theii own selfish
view8 enlisting in their cause the selfish
feelings of the multitude. Men, like fish,
rovided the hook is concealed, r greedily
swaHow the bait. This fact was proven by
the ease with which they were carried away
by the enthusiasm that precipitcd the coun
try into a civil war not foreeeing tbe
dreadful consequences that were to be en
tailed on themselves. The hook was ad
roitly concealed by the ingenuity of the
unprincipled demagogues who stirred up
the elements of strife that they might ride
into power, place and wealth, and now
laugh at the dupes who were so easily gulled.
So here with this movement in favor of
an imperialism, the great mass are to be de
luded, with j&e idea ihat employment and
comfortable subsistence can now only, be
attained through- the influence of a strong
government; that a republican form fias
failed to confer It, - and therefore let some
other be tried. The fact that one of Grant's
Cabinet is prominent in the movement, and
willing to embark financially in .the enter
prise of .starting a paper devoted to its ad
vancement, is significant, to say the least
of it. The new paper was quite successful
on the first issue. Over -ten, thousand cop
ies were Aoli bef arc'. tb; e nitration of the
first week of iu publication. Grant himselt

Free Trade in Money-A Card
from Mr. Henry Clay Dean.
' riis': Vnder the above caption Ta "your
issue of April 24th, I' quota Mc! Charks
Reemelin'a definition of "motley,'1 which
he says now includes 4iCoiu, Government
paper money, bank notes, checks, notes,
bills, bonds." In the article I wrote for the
OoaiaiTrter, I said; 'I avert j HrJ ReemelinV
excepting only coin, these articles named
are mere matters' cf merchandise f or rather
snadows of merchandise, promises, upon
which contracts for murehandifce advanced.'.
In the article as published in the Common
er, the words "excepting only coin" are
Omkted,-and . therefore the proper import
of trUat llld ir-st is -desfroyid. v
Mr. Reemelin takes advantage of this
transparent mistake, and construes it into
a concession to the truth of his definition.
When Mr. Reemelin places himself in the
attitude of a lexicographer, I can only place
against him the authorities of my first arti
cle, ,woiJh he very wisely avoids, attempting
te answer. Coin is the only money of this
country, so declared by the Constitution.
Because in my last article J charge that
the plan of payihe tHe pubCct debt baa not
been stated fairly as it was written, Mr.
Reemelin makes this the pretext foi an at
tack upon my published work, "Crimes of
the Civil War," this Is entirely legitimate.
But it is not legitimate for him to say that
I seem to complain that be has not review
ed the work, when I have not written one
word in that regard. Moreover I never
dreamed of having Mr. Reemelin do me
any such service cutil the editor of the
Commoner requested that I send a copy of
the work to Mr. Reemelin, which I did.
As the whole matter was of an entirely pri
vate character, snch as is always held sa
cred -among gentlemen, I cannot- conde
scend to give it farther notice c .
The following phrases embellished ins
extraordinary card: "Atrocious . senti
ments," "false principles," applied to.ray
work : "Lacks thorough reading" applied
to myself. "He is, if honest, an ignora
mus,'! "if dishonest, a financial knave, ap
plied to everybody who differs with roe in
opinion : The last phrase would be prop
erly a bull if Mr. Reemelin were an Irish
man instead of a German. The whole
string of expletives- is. certainly . courteous,
if not courily, coming firm . gentleman
who deprecates personal controversy ' ; ,
I have never held Mr. Reemelin to any
thing except civility, and this he seema to
haye forgotten. A strict regard to the
amenities of social life would have saved
him seven ci"UU of bis card, and bJt for
an omission in the proof reading, there
would have been no pretext for the other

Contempt for the Will of the People.
The open exultation of the Radical organs
at every new triumph of their negro policy
is very significant of the new state of things
that the party is striving to establish m this
country. For, every one of these triumphs
is mere a new instance of contempt for the
will of the people. It is a notorious unOe-4
niable fact that the people of Pennsylvania
do not want to establish negro suffrage in
this State. -What then? Do the Radical
leaders try to convince or persuadetfce peo
pie that, they ought, to share their political

ter ; we have settled it for you I This, too,
in spite of the express provision of the Con
stitution, that every change in it shall be
submitted to a vote of the people. It is
scarcely possible to imagine a greater piece
of . impudent political effrontery than that
practised by our infamous Legislature, at
its last session. It was elected on the sol
emn pledge of its party in the lust campaign
that nbe question of suffrage in, all the
loyal States belongs to the people of those
States." ; Yet this Is the Legislature that
has the impudence to join hands with the
Radical clique in Congress, and force negro
suffrage on the North by tbe help of the
negro legislatures of the South. Radical
ism is the same everywhere. - In Indiana,
U is by a bare faced impudent fraud that it
the negro question from the people. 'The
Democrats, in combatting this outrage, have
resorted even to the expedient or resigning,
so as to bring on a new election, at which
the people's voice may be beard. But so
desperate are the Radicals that they have
pretended- that it doe not -require -querum
of a Legislation S ratify a ' negro amend
ment, so wiuieuf a qtioraaiayiey have gone
thrQuirh the .form of doins; it. Any form,
any pretense, however bald and empty, will

Radical peace- to the South is ftn-h as tbo

and forin of government to the contrary,
we are now livtng under the hugest and
most merciless despotism on the face of

that di'e Czar of 'Russia would "not dare do.
even in Poland, ap&i fsoi -fe-jjoltipg in detail,
that King Theodore himself wtnild hesitate
in their commission, .Itf is useless for os to
go into the detals of the "Outrage provoking
these expressions. The tale is told in the
heading, and it is old, old- story of wrong
and oppression' telterated. ,tt i useless to
say, too, that ' no one- beheves the man so
severely punished to have had the remotest
connection with the stealing of the horses,
which the soldiers claim to have lost. His
most probable offense was that he was. a
good Confederate soldier during the war,
and an ardent hater of Radicalism after the
war. .'!"1'''1 i'iii, H''itr ;
This is the same case that we partially re
ported last week. It was then stated that
he was probably drowned, but it seems the
commander deceived the United States Mar
shal, and reserved his victim for further
torture. The facts are briefly these, as far
as we can learn : The soldiers, while ea- J
camped at Martin Hale s, lost two horses.
They suspected or pretended to suspect,
Mr. Roberts of the crime, although he lived
seven miles distant, and was found quietly
asleep at home when arrested. They at
once arrested him,' and next 'morning- took
him along with 'them on the march, and
then bis suffering commenced. He cither
did not know, or would tell . nothing of the
horses, aud they hung him, as the comman
der himself expressed to the United States
Marshal, ,unul he. was black ia the face "
Farther on they again hung him, so citizens
report, befoie reaching Gadsden. When
in Gadsden the nerves of the poor man
were so unstrung that he did not know for
some trrue his most intimate friends. After
leaving the town, the Unitedtates Marshal
was sent for, and with the deputy Sheriff
and others, went in pursuit.. .On overtaking
the command, tbey were informed that the
man bad escaped at the last creek, which
leo to Uie . tupposiiion that he .was there
murdered. Ai'lerwasds, near Walnut Grove,
citizens report he was again hung and whip

Food for Reflection.
Ia an intereFtine article, .whichtlately ap
peared in the New York Tribuncj regarding
the Chinamen and their peculiarities, we
find the following. It furnishes food for
reflection to those who contemplate the fu
ture of this country :

nese question merit more attention than it
has received f A little cioud now on the
far western horizon, does it not bid fair to
overshadow the whole future ot the Repub
lic The 60 or 1 00, 000 Mongolians on
our western coast are the thin edge of the
wedge which has for its base the 500, 000
000 of Eastern Asia. The Pacific is 6,000
miles wide, but steam is practically reducing
it to the limits of the ancient Mediterranean
and it rolla between countries where the re
ward of labor is at its maximum on the one
hand, and at its minimum on the other.
Give natural laws' free play, and "over the
sea, from -west to east, will-sweep greater
hordes than ever followed the 6un across
the plain-Of 'Asia. The; d-iy has gone by
-when the sword determined whether a given
soil should breed Celts or Saxons, Huns or
Gauls, Goths or Rotoans ; bat the weapons
of peaee-are-no- less effeetiye than those of
war. The wild mustard can crowd wheat
from the field ; sheep may drive from the
pasture the stronger ox ; the locust may
put the buffalo to flight. Like these the
Chinaman can live where' stronger -than he
would starve. Give him fair play, and this
quality enables him to drive our stronger
races. One hundred thousand Mongolians
on the Pacific coast means so many less
of .our own race now and hereafter to be.
Five or six millions would mean that all
but the crown of the body politic should be
Mongolian ;' would mean a British India
nstead of a New England upon the western
shores ' .1 ': ,'..:.-

AN IRISH LOVE-STORY.
: "Love rule3 the camp, the council
and the court," some poet sang. If
this is not the exact quotation our
reaaers win paraen us. v nat we
want to get at is that love is power.
ful, that it is a lever which, with a
proper ruicrum.wm move the world.
Leander, for the sake of Hero, swam
the Hellespont; a j-oung man of
Toledo, for the sake ot one as beau
tiful as Hero, allowed her father to
flounder in the turbid waters of the
JVi-aumee an - hour or more ' last Sun
day. 'The matter was something
like this : -- :
A young ''Irishman, "as toight a
lad as ever crossed the say,"was,and
had been for some time, desperately
enamored of the charms of a young
maid of the race, which love was re
turned with interest; The mother
of the yeung lady approved of the
match, but, alas! (was there ever a
love affair without an "alas?") the
paternal -parent was obduate.1 He
couldn't see it. He had accumulated
some moneys and' prided himself
thereupon, while Phehm, as we will
stylo our hero (the hero of-a'story is
always the young -man- inilove),
hadn't a dollar to his name, it taking
all his earnings to keep his mother
and an invalid sister. The old gen
tleman had higher ideas for his
daughter, and; last Saturday night
the lovers were made miserable by
the hard-hearted old wrortch order
ing Phelim out of the house, and
enforcing his command with a brick.
Kitty (that is the name we shall
give our heroine, which name is
usually given to the young lady in
love) threw herself between the an
gry men, and succeeded in getting
the enraged young one away from
the domicile before matters came to
serious extremities. .
Phelim was in no good humor
that night, lie knew Kitty loved
him and also knew she would marry
him, father or no father, but he was
prudent young man. If he should
marry her, and the old gentleman
shouldn't do .the handsome thing,
how would they get started.and how
would they live? Love is all very
well, but it don't luruish a house,
neiter can it live without meat and
potatoes.' For an article of which
so much is. written it is terribly
matter-of-fact; and, besides, Kitty
was an only child, and if he married
her without the old gentleman's
consent, how about tne property
when death took him away?
All these things and a great many
more, too tedious to mention, was
Phelim cogitating as he .walked
along the bank of the river on the
afternoon ensuing. A splash awoke
him from his reverie. He sprang
to the place. He looked into the
water, and, good heavens! to the
surface came the bald head of Kit
ty's father ! Here was vengeance for
him. The old gentleman could swim
a little, just enough to keep above
water a few minutes. There was
nothing for him to hold to, and no
one but Phelin in sight. Should he
let him drown, and go up and marry
tne gin r jno, ne would save him. i
Irish generosity overbalanced his
love, and seizing a long but very
slender pole near by, he reached one
bhu io mm. j.ne oia gentleman
took it,' and Phelirn commenced
hauling him in, when a thought
struck him, and he shoved him into
the water, allowing him to still hold
to the end of. the pole.
"Do ye Know me, ye ouid biacK-
gnard ? "
or course I do. Pull me up !"
"Are ye entirely comfortable down
there in the water?"
"Pull me up, ye spalpeen !"
"Faix. an' that won't. Its the
first time I iver see ye in the water,
an' it plazes me."
"Pull my up !" .
"Wiirye consint?" '
"Consint to what?" '
"Kitty. Ye know well enough
what I mane-" . . . i
"Niver !'': .... .... ::
"It's all wan to me- Ye may
dhrown intirely, and who will stop
me thin ? Think twice. Will ye
The old gentleman was becoming
exhausted. At best he never liked
water, and the Maurnee River was
too much for him.
4 Yis, I consint : pull me up!" he
" Will ye give . us a settin, out ?"
said Phelim, who knew his advan

Phelim hesitated a moment as to
the propriety of tying the father of
Kitty to the dock in tne water, ana
going ud and marrying the girl be
fore saving mm, but ne nnaiiy tno't
he could trust him, and hauled mm
out of the water. .
The event proved the old man as
good as his word. The young cou
ple were married, and yesterday
they were moving a very suitable
outfit for housekeeping Into a com
fortable cottage which the father
possessed and has hitherto let.
His falling into the river was the
result of inordinate doses ofwhisky
which he commenced taking imme
diately after the scrimmage of Sat
urday nieht, and continued at inter
vals. with an occasional one between
the intervals, up to the hour of his
nlunge. Thus whisky and water

The celebrated American tragedi
an, .Mr. (Jooke, was always fond or a
frolic ok his benefit night, declaring'
that he never took liberties with his
lriend3 at any other time. Jt once
happened,' during an engagement at
Philadelphia, that on such an, occa
sion he was short of money, and at
loss -where to raise the wind for the
accustomed breeze. In 'this, dilem
ma, he started up - the : town ' in the
speculative mood, determined to
Inspirit himseir in some way or
other. Having reached the corner
of Callowhill and Eighth streels, he
perceived one of those enticing
signs, of' three golden bails. lie
turned -the -corner ana entered tne
fatal-door,- and addressed the man
behind the counter thus : -
"My name is Cooke. This - is my
benefit night. The manager , can't
do without me. 1 am up lor xucb
ard the Third. I want some liquor.
I have no money. . Now, I propose
to pledge my royal person for ten
dollars, and you may lay me. upon
one of your shelves."
The joke was a queer one: tne
pawnbroker paid the ten dollars.and
Cooke wa3 laid up. Tho theatre that
night was crowded, and at seven
o'clock the manager came forward
to apologize.'-stating that with the
permission of tne audience the per
formance would commence with a
faree. He had sent in different di
rections, but was unable to find Mr.
Cooke in the city. He presumed
that the tragedian would- be forth
coming in: the course of thenext
hair hour, as the manager retirea,
he was told that a boy wished to see
him in the green- room. - He found
the bov. who presented a note writ

translated thus :
My Dear Jones I am pawned
for ten dollars: send and redeem
me. or it will be impossible for
Richard to be himsel to-night.
The manager started immediately
after the nxed star, and louna mm
nicely shelved, with a plate of bis
cuits and cheese, and a bottle of
prandv. In the- button-hole of his
coat wa3 a piece of paper marked,
"No. 1,473 ; pawned for ten dollars."
