to hop and courage and activity. Tho
highest virtue ia not to despair of the Re

-will not blindly eling to the. prejudice! or
traditions of the put when they stand in
the way of useful reform. I will nut, in
any MOMobe ooatervaxivii of error, o rcjeci
truth because of preposwewion, or jiald my
redence to the dogma that the limit of hu
man progress has been attained. Govern
incuts and nations are purified in the fires

Alts ! that it most be to !
These revolutions of society aod govern
ment spring out of a high mental and mora)
exaltation out of an enthusiasm fur pro
greet which ,will hesitate at no effort, , and
shriuk from no experiment If roan were
capable of sustaining this passion and this
activity, and of attaiuing absolute truth
without an alloy of error, then, indeed,
would be cease to be man and become like
unto (iod. Tbii can not bo. The reaction
must strike off the errors which havo ac-
cumulated on the progress of revolution;
and this, too, like revolution, inoy strike too
close and oat too deep.
The reaction will surely come. All his
tory, all philosophy declare it It has come
to.all otlier nations; it will come to us. It
list come,' sometimes, clothed in the white
robe of peuce, sometimes with its garments
dyed in blood. In every country there has
been a party of power, and a party against
it. In every country there have been men
who loved liberty as they loved virtuo, and
honor, and truth; men who would avenge
its wrongs, even as they would protect tho
virtue of the wile of tliwtr bosom, or tho
honor of tho mother who boretliem. Lib
erty inspires the soul. Its sacred fires for
ever burn amid its apostles und defenders.
When peaeelu.1 moans are exausted, it
d raws the sword. Let its enemies, then, be
ware, whether they sit to singlo solitude on
a throne, or crtVd the market plates. Bo
will.it be with us.
' Our people desire to be w ist and virtuous.
Our country is young and rich, and strong.
Experience will not teach its painful lessons
in vain. The splendid recollections of the
rast havo not entirely pushed away. Its
vestiges are not all buried in tho ruin of
the present. The hopes of the future aro

They will acdernte the counter-revolution.
Let us diligently prepare the way. It is
wisdom to accept accomplished facts. It is
folly to abandon correct principles in the
moment of their adversity. Principles are
eternal institutions of government are but
insrumenta ities facts vary a the days
succeed each other and seem to change at
the biding of the fickle moon. Let us hold
fast to principles, let us modify institutions,
let us recognize the changing phases of facts.
It is the office of wise men to adopt just
principles ot government by tho aid of lit in
stitutions to every condition of affair a. Lib-
berty is the great good. Confederation is
to be sought only . because it has uided to
maintain it Centralization it to bo avoid
ed only because it has always destroyed it.
But at last, liberty it the lite, the soul, and
government is the form, the body through
which it is developed. ..
. Let ut then, gentlemen, look at the past

imporialism.to tho satetv of a confederation,
founded,' supported and restrained by the
checks and balances of a wise Constitution.

Will It Widen or Close the Gulf
The American Anti-Slavery So
ciety held its annual pow-wow in
New York City the past week.
Hon. Thos. J. Durant, of New Or
leans, was one of the speakers. A
portion of his remarks are worth
making a note of. Ho 6aid.v.
"Tho black man is to become a
political element in this country.
He, it may be, is ignorant, but he
is not ignorant that his own vote
is to protect his freedom. Ap
plause. He may be uneducated
and unintelligent, buthe will learn
to know that by voting for men of
his own race (if such can be lound
and I know that such can be) it is
by voting for men of his own race,
and placing them in the halls of
Congress And in the State Legisla
tures, that his liberties will be best
ecured." . ".
Mr. Durant does not express all.
The blacks are not only to vote for
men of their own race for 6eats in
Congress and the State Legisla
tures, but they are to demand that
the stigma, prejudice, or whatever
you may please to style it, of caste
shall be obliterated. And that can
never be. Hence, heart-burnings,
hatreds and revenges will be con
stantly cherished by the blacks and
mulattoes. The negroes want not
only' representatives in Congress,
in the State Legislatures and other
public positions, but they want free
access to the hotels, concerts and
other public places, just as whites;
. and to sand their, children to the
.common schools with white child
ren. Caste is what must be oblit
erated, and the ballot Is nothing to

To Campaign Subscribers.
The "signs of the times" portend
that the coming political campaigu
will be one of the most stirring, in
Ohio, at least, that we have ever
passed through. In order that the
voting public should be able to
cast their ballots knowingly, and
delend the glorious principles of
the Democratic party, it is essent
ial that they should thorough
ly post themselves on the is
sues of the day. There is no bet
ter way of achieving this object
than to subscribe for the Iiecor l
for the campaign. We will send
the Record from now until, after
the fall election (being,, over four
months) for the small sum of i'prty
cents. Send along the names and
money. Now is the time to sub
Release of Jefferson Davis on Bail.
The Cincinnati Enquirer says
that after nearly, or quite, two
years of imprisonment, without a
trial, or any prospect of any, Mr.
Davis has at length been released
on bail, a prominent Radical editor,
Mr. Horace Greeley, "going as
one of his securities. This, .we
presume, is a virtual end of the
whole matter, for we can not be
lieve that the prosecution will be
pressed any further. We congrat
ulate tho country upon an act
which relieves it, in the estimation
of the world, of the fcul stigma
punishing a man to whom it would
neither grant a trial nor a release.
Ia this, all sense of justice was
outraged, and a merited' stigma
dishonor brought upon the Gov
ernment. Long ago it was per
ceived that no good whatever could
be effected by the trial and punish
ment of the great leader, who act
ed as the head of eleven sovereign
States, in their attempt to sevei
the ties which bound them to their
twenty-five associates. What
did was no individual act, but was
the expression of the will of nearly
one-third of the American people,
acting through their State forms
organizations. . To attempt
change this great State transaction
into one of personal crime
the part of a single agent was -
horent to ail ideas ol right and jus
tice. Besides, every reason of
pediencv and public policy dictate
that the wounds of the war and
bitterness of feeling should not
perpetuated by an irritating trial;
that would only exasperate . those
whom we desire to reconcile to
Government and the old flag!

Negro Rule in New Orleans.
At the breaking up of a Radical
Convention in New Orleans, on
Saturday, the negroes, several thou
sand strong, marched through the
city, and upon St. Charles street
they drove 1 the white occupant's
from a railway car by thrusting
their clubs through the windows.-
It appears that the citizens took
all quite meekly, but how long
white flesh and blood can ftand thU
sort of tfcing, is a problem which
perhaps will some time or other
solved. The Radical rulers of New
