Ntraggle nr Power.
The motives and alms of the opponents of
tho Administration are now everywhere
clearly comprehended. It is an unscrupu
lous strtigglo for tho retention of power.
Principle has nothing to do with it save aa
lurnismng convenient suuicriugcs unacr
which to shelter. Look at tho proceedings
of their late convention in Philadelphia.
They had there, as they allege, all that was
cuoigo anu pure in 1110 ooutn. i o rncce weso
there came nearly all the Northern Governors',
and and a multitude of tho radical leaden.
They all affirmed it as right that auflrago
should be untrcrsol. But did they take their
stand for tho right aa they profess to regard
lt T By no means. They openly and
avowedly rejected the standard of rioM, and
set up that ot narry expediency I The ma
jority urged that if they declared for negro
sunrage tno peopio wonia not sustain mem,
and they wonld lose tho reins of government
These are tho martyrs to be sure whom wo
are to revcrenco as devotees to truth I mere
spoils-hunters and spoils-hungcrcrs, swift to
abandon principles or eaendeo allies, without
rcmorso or shame, if necessary to gain office!
No wonder that tho netrro-sulTrairo men In
tho Convention denounced the desertion of
those who professed a concurronco of boiler.
But in truth, their own courso was equally
as selfish and sordid. Thcro was no princi
ple or disinterestedness in tho courso of any
of them. They divided in opinion exactly
according to their respective interests, and
without tho least rcfcrcnco to anv higher
consideration. Tho Gulf States men advo
cated negro suffrage, because they supposed
tno negro votes would do given to mem, and
enable them to carry tho elections. Tho
Border States men opposed negro suffrage,
because they supposed negro sufirago would
prejudice tho white votes, and thus mako
tnera ioso mo elections, iicrc wo navo mo
wholo explanation. They wished to give
votes to tho negroes where they ore many,
and to deny them where vkey are few, with
Bole reference to carrying the dectiom for
themselves. On ono side and tho other, they
openly admitted this. Principle had noth
ing whatever to do with it
Tho wholo radical programme Is a reckless
disregard of tho vital interests of vast com
munities, and the peace and prosperity of
the whole country, Tli tho pursuit or power.
Fred. Douglass, who was received with such
demonstrations of delight in Philadelphia,
had to wait but a day or two to find his peo
ple sacrificed, and to see negro sufirago made
to rest, not upon Its merits, but upon its
bringing or losing votes to tho radicals. The
test was, not whether it is n'on(,but whether
it will pay.
This nttcr abnegation of all principle in
tho treatment of the question of negro suf
frage, is paralleled in tho wholo courso of
dealing with tho South. It is the southern
vole that prevents southern reconstruction.
If it could bo believed that it would bo given
to tho party now in power, every impedi
ment would at onee lUssolvo like mist All
the mighty objections over which radical ora
tors now rave and rant would bo instantly
abandoned, as the mere pretences that they
arc. But sooner than allow tho southern
States to oto while they arc expected to
voto adversely, tho dominaut party would
not only maintain tho present unrest and
distraction, but would diisolvo tho Union
forever. They would infinitely prefer to dis
miss the southern States than admit them as
reinforcements to their political opponents.
Suck is the simplo truth of thostrugglo
now enacting. In these plain facts wo havo
tho Acy to tho inana'uvring of tho managers,
1 he cry for negro sutfragc Is in the hope that
negro suffrage would make tho Southern
States radical. 1 ho opposition to Southern
recognition is becanso tho Southern States
arc not radical, and It will last till they be
come to. It will be impossible to conciliate
the obstructionists by any compliance thort
cf that. Negro suffrage, if it were agreed to
to-morrow, would not satisfy them, Dccanso
its results would disappoint them. Despite
their calculations and figuring, it would not
gain them a single Southern citato. Tho con
test over the recognition of our rights will
needs tro on between thoso whoso views of
justice and of interest will causo them to favor
mo recognition, ami the party whoso interests
will prompt them to oppose it, until tho lat
ter shall be .anqulahcd. It is difficult to sea
how it will end without blows. Tho radicals
will never consent for us to bo counted, if
such counting Is to dethrone them. Their
opponents will scarcely consent to rcnounco
a triumph to whieh they may find themselves
entitled, and whieh they would enjoy but for
the wrong of our exclusion. When our ex
elusion or admission shall become tho test
and condition of party supremacy, parties
will fight over it wo sco no escape.
Mcantlmo wo are liko sailors lashed to tha
mast, while tho fight which is to decide their
fortune, rages around them. Wo shuro in
tho danger, but not in the conllict. Let us
address ourselves to such duties as aro open
