The vicissitudes of free government havo
never before offered to complete a demon
stration of the real cause, which lead to tho
decay and downfall of republican nations
M that afforded by the preient condition
of thing. In the United Btatei. And this
is so because there Is no other Instance on
record In which the acts and opinions of
the politicians nave been brought out In
such strong contrast with tho wishes and
sentiments of the people.
Our people, hiving Just emerged from
the convulsions of war, and seeking
rcposo from the distractions of further
tumult, directed by their appeals the
adoption of some means which should
peacefully determlno the result of the elec
tion, as between the two great and evenly
contending parties, by a fair and reasonable
construction of the constitution framed for
their guidance. This courso was demanded
by the general desire to close the contest
then racing In the barren fields of assertion,
and to avoid all possible danger of hostile
collisions, which experience taught could
result only In distress and Buffering to
them, and vlo'enco to the organic law sup
porting the structure of their governm ent.
And such were the earnest and unceasing
asseverations of the people of their wish to
see Justice meted out under the forms of
the Constitution and In pursuance of Its
provisions, and of their fears that anarchy
would other lse supervene through at
tempts at an adjustment by means subver
sive of it, that Congress responded by the
creation of a commission to carry out the
popular will, v. hose agency was confined
within the pun low of tho consecrated In
strument. Bat when the Impressive and solemn
trust Imposed by the law came to be exer
cised by those appointed to the duty, Its
execution disclosed a disparity of reason
and dissimilitude of Judgment that startled
and dismayed the country. Not that there
was any longer cause of fear from violence,
but because of the now patent fact that
party, and not principle, wonld have con
trolled the conflict bad It onco set in, and
the liberties cf the people would havo been
at tho mercy of mi r Hal madness. Not be
cause of the danger in prospect, but of the
danger escaped I The representatives of
one party, blinded by zeal, or over-wrought
by considerations of equity, real or I mix
incd, voted to cast down tho bulwark of
government, that the way might bo clear
to pursue and disperse the obstacles erected
by alleged fraud In their pathway to the
Presidency. In so far as their action could
effect such a result, they declared in favor
of overruling and setting aside the Consti
tution upon mere allegations of fraud, to
b proToo, trac all, by partisan testimony,
in utter disregard and contempt of the ex
press Injunction of the people, who sought,
through the Intervention of the Commis
sion, to which they had committed the
sacred charge, to have Its ordinances Invio
lably maintained. And this was done
without accountable cause, without prece
dent In all the realms of coittltutlonal
construction, but against the whole body
of precedents since the foundation of the
Government. It was likewise in violation
of the Scriptural precept and all moral
maxims. It was the manifestation of a
willingness to root ont the tares, without
reference to the destruction of the wheat,
and apparently careless of the conse
quences to those who sowed tho field.
Can any one suppose that a single member
of that Commission six months ago would
have held that there was a power In Con
gress, or any other branch of the General
Government, to do the acts his vote wonld
now Justify? No. Nor would either of
them affirm of himself, that such would
have been his Judgment then, or now, had
the question been presented In the abstract,
unattended by any prospect of practical
results to follow It. But It Is not an evi
dence of corruptness. It Is rather ono of
sacrifice. It only shows, as wo said yea
terday, that great crises change the hearts
and control the Judgments of men, Imper
ceptibly to themselves. In obedience to the
sympathies and Impulses of aisoclition,
and uninfluenced by the convictions or
canonizations of the past.

The spirit of bull dozing has fastened It
self upon the House of Representatives
with a force and enthusiasm even greater
than It has exhibited In the South, where
the system was first created by the ruling
passion of mob violence. The Democrats
look upon Governor Wills as their chief
enemy. Their emmUsaries tailed to pur
chase his honor and Integrity by their gold
and cow In a spirit of bitter spleen they
are endeavoring to ruin his physical health
by sacrificing bis personal liberty In the
trim Bastlle or the Capitol. They have
thrown him Into a dungeon with Iron bars
at the windows, mouldy walls as his con
lines, and amid these filthy and degrad
ing surroundings, they are compelling
him, In violation of the most sacred rights
of an American freeman, to drag out day
after day awaiting their peculiar pleasure.
Tbe Constitution confers no right upon the
House of Representatives to deprive an
American citizen of his personal liberty,
and yet at the whlmslcai behest of a mob
violent committee this man Is cast Into a
sunless and loathsome dungeon, as though
be were a common knave and guilty of a
bloodr crime.
Hut what Is bis offonse 1 It Is because
be refuses to produce tho papers of a
sovereign State, over which he has no
more control ana rigm man nas me ruier
of an Oceanlo Isle over the Government of
the American people. It is because he re
fuses to answer questions asked htm by a
notoriously bull-dozing committee, which
is hts-rlgbt to refuse without violating any
Jaw or conimlltlns; any offense rmnlj'uble
by tho House of Representatives under the
Constitution. It Is an Infamous outrage,
aid an arbitrary srbemo to force confession
by punishment such as a Christian clvillzt
tion would refuse to Infl'ct upon a creature
of tho bruto creation.
Governor Wills Is an old man, IIo Is
seventy years of age and Infirm In b.xlv.
Under the unreasonable treatmont of tbe
Democratic IIouso ho bat become HI and
Is now under the care of a physician.
Thcso facts wero all laid before tliollouie
on Thursday, and still that body Insisted
upon bis further confinement in this foul
and disease-breeding dungeon crypt. Tals
policy Is but a continuation of their law
less and assassinating system In tho South.
It Is a scheme which will work out a most
telling curse to them In the course of time.
Dull-dozing in the National Capital, the
tyrannical use of power, tho Infraction ot
human rights, and the violation of all rules
of common humanity will bring In their
wake a retribution which wilt be felt
among tho perpetrators of theso crying
outrages. The bull dozing days of the
Democracy are fast passing away.
Til i: IlOl'E.1 OF THE DEJIOCItACr Altli
1)1-11).
Slnco tho developments of yesterday and
to-day a rlpplo of general good humor has
been constantly passing over the mass of
Republican voters throughout tho country,
while in a corresponding degree shadows
of gloom and misgiving have shrouded tbe
hitherto hopeful Democracy. Florida is
for Hates. That question Is now settled
beyond dispute. In tho future tbe only
points of Important consideration are those
of Louisiana and Oregon. Louisiana slnco
the sun rose on the eighth day of Novem
ber has been confidently claimed by the
Republicans. Every development since
that dsy has materially strengthened that
claim until at last whatever hopes the De
mocracy have bad of securing It for Tildes
have fadid away. To-morrow the evldenco
In this caso will be presented to the Tri
bunal for Its decision. On Monday Mr.
Stouoiitom will make tho main argument
for the Republicans, and by Tuesday we
will probably be able to announce Louisiana
for Hates. The Democrats know this
will bo the Inevltablo result, and are there
fore looking to Oregon as their forlorn
hope. The case of Oregon will probably
be reached by Thursday, and Mr. Stanley
Mathews, who Is thoroughly prepared In
the case, will present the main argument
for the Republicans. In this forlorn hope
of the Democracy tho friends of Mr. Hates
have nothing to fear. The popular will of
the sovereign people of Oregon declared at
the ballot box that Mr. Watts was their
cholco as an elector. The votes were counted
accordlog to the forms of law, and he was
pronounced elected by legally constituted
authority, and It was only at the eleventh
hour that Governor Gnovsn Importuned
by the National Democratic Commltteo to
save his party fromdefeat,dcclJed to usurp
his legitimate powers and send his "Gob
ble" despatch which read:
'I shall deold. every polat in this ease of th.
pott olflea elector In f.ror of th. hlgh.it Memo
rratlo .lector and grant a eertlflcat. accordingly.
Hut. morning of tho sixth lnconlwiu.no. oonn
dtntlal." When Florida was decided for nans
yesterday the Democrats In their despera
tion endeavored to console themselves that
they might yet deprive Hares of this vote
Id Oregon and throw the election In the
House. But such hopes are in vain. Toe
Republican leaders have not stepped Into
the snaro which the Democratic leaders so
cunningly laid for them. They refused to
assert or admit that the certificate of Gov
ernor Stearics was conclusive of tho tights
of the Florida electors. They, on the con
trary, claim that full force must only be
given to the certificate when there is no
other person present exhibiting a better
warrant and showing by unmistakable
evidence that he Is tho legitimately chosen
elector. We will not boast, but the hops
of the Democracy are dead.
CUAKCE IS OT KINO.
John BnouoriAU says that "llfo Itself Is
a gamo of chance. The very axiom,
'nothing Is certain,' disproves even the
certainty of nothing being certain. The
very machinery of the firmament Is a
sublime game ol billiards. In which the
stars are the balls, and tho cues the
centrifugal and centripetal forces."
BnocouAM Is talking simply for the sake
of talk, and not for the sake of truth. Were
his theory correct, where would be that
splendid equilibrium which we find so
amply preserved throughout all the realms
of space! Were tho machinery of tho
firmament a sublime game of billiards, as
ho affirms, and the cues the centrifugal and
centripetal forces, and the whole controlled
by the caprices of chance, chaos would
reign, and a clash of solar systems and the
utter destruction of the machinery of
the universe would follow, leaving one
Illimitable ruin throughout the realms
of space. Were Bnoua ham's theory
correct, there would be times when the
Democratic demagogue would be found ex
pounding the true principles of honest
Government a thing which never hsppeni
under the present Incomparable system of
law and order which grace the Universe.
Were nature subject to the vagaries of
chance, apple trees would be fruited deep
with pumpkins, grape vines would yield
potatoes, rose bushes would grow pansics,
plants which this year may be laden with
fragrant heliotropes might bear odorless
flowers tbe next.
Cnomn's nose, with all Its blushing
(well, might have been under his arm, and
thit fastidious palate of bis, which was
such a skillful Judge of ipirifui ftrmintt,
might have been In his car, and
his ear on his elbow. Samuel
Cox's voluble tongue might have
been in the mouth of some Member with
less brains. The Commltteo of Appropria
tions' bands might have been slung alto
gether to the shoulders of the extravagant
BrniNOEit, and thus would have been
burled constantly In Uncle Sam's pocket
for Jon's sake. Indeed, the caprices of
chance might have made Field Tweed
and Tweed Field, and the Tombs of Hew
York might havo been In Washington, and
the Goddess of Liberty outraged aud
drowned In the Fotomac. But as Chance
Is not Ring; law and order reign, and the
Electoral Commission, guided by their be
nign Influence, Is preparing to declare
Uayes as elected, and the American people
are making arrangements to secure his
! rtaceablo Inauguration.

Tbe ErgVsh people, ss a general thing,
ate oprcsed to spy complications In the so
lution of the Kastern question which will
Involve Great Britain In war. This was
the sentiment which they exhibited Just
bifore the Crimean struggle, but notwith
standing tho powerful anti-war spirit then
prcvslcnt, tho nation, through the action of
its political leadera and the inducements
held out by the allied poneis, was sad
denly launched Into that bloody conflict,
which every ono now believes might and
ought to bavo been avoided. Tho British
ministers wero then, as they profess
to be now, mthuslasllo for peace, but
when tho crisis came they sulJenly
weakened and becamo utterly con
fused ss to the course which ought to have
been taken. France, ss tho ally of Groit
Britain, urged her to defend tho Mussul
man power. Them need bavo been but
moderate encouragement In this respect,
for amlcalilo relations b.ttresn Russia nud
England bad long beforo been destroyed.
Bcsldis, she wss in the entangling meshes
of an Implied agreement to atd and protect
tie Sultan's right-. These were the con
ditions of Great Britain then, and she is
surroucded by even greater entanglemonts
now. It may, theroforo, be reasonably
expected that when tho hordes of armed
Cossacks cross the Turkish border, on their
devastating expedition to the Golden
norn, they will find the rank and file of
British red coats awaiting to receive them
In the provinces cf Bosnia and Bulgaria.
TIIK LATE TtEAIt ADMIHAL3.
The Secretary of the Navy has made to
tho Naval Service the sad announcement
of the death of two distinguished officers
of the Navy, Rear Admirals Wilkes and
All-ex. Of Admiral Aldek, the Secre
tary says ! The life of this distinguished
officer wss devoted, from his youth, to the
service of his country. As a young man,
he took part In the United States Explor
ing Expedition under the late Rear Ad
miral Wilkes, and subsequently had
charge of most Important scientific duty In
the survey of our Pacific coast His later
services wero those of the Chief of the
Bureau of Navigation, and tho command
of our fleet on the European Station.
In every sphere of duty ho exhibited the
highest qualities of a naval officer, aud
wax, during the late civil war, specially
conspicuous for gallantry and capacity on
almost every occasion which contributed
to the glory of the Naval Service.
In the announcement of tho death of
Admiral Wilkes, he also says : The scien
tific and literary attainments of this distin
guished officer, and his acknowledged zeal
and patriotism, have been long known and
appreciated by his countrymen. Ills death
will be lamented by the Service and by the
people of the United States.
THE NEW TOrtK SUN IN AOONY.
There Is a growing uneasiness settling
OTcrthe Democracy slnco the Tribunal's
decision In the Florida cose, and some In
dications of a resistance to tbe ultimate re
sult of the work of the Commission. The
New York Sun, seeing the chances of Mr.
Tildes passing so rapidly away, cries out
In agony, "This Commission, tbco, Is
neither a legislative nor a judicial body.
It Is non-dcscrlpt. It is a body for which
we find no place cor room under our sys
tem of government. It Is without form
and void. It Is a monstrosity, It is
neither ono thing cor the other. It la
nothing."
During tho entiro tlmo the electoral bill
was under consideration, Baiitlett, the
editor, was silent. Not a word was written
for or against the proposed compromise,
and It was not until the fifth Judgo had
been chosen that Baiitlett saw fit to give
bis opinion ss a Constitutional lawyer,
against the bill. It Is too late now. The
time for opposlllou has passed. The bill Is
a law. Its fruits are rapidly growing.
The Gun must swallow the result whether
It be palatable or no.
MEXICO'S CO JUNO FHE3IDENT.
None of the aspirants to the Presidency
of Mexico should ever be alio wod to occupy
the position. None of them are In any
manner qualified for tho exalted place.
They are natural bandits, with all the in
clinations and characteristics of peace dis
turbers, and Mexico will never prosper
under their rule. According to reports,
Diaz has the advantage of both his oppo
nents, and unless there is a providential
Interference of some kind, he will proba
bly be Inaugurated, as he has virtually, by
bis arbitrary measures, disposed of both
Iolesias and Lbrdo. The electors re
cently chosen will meet to-morrow and
cast their votes for President, the formal
opening and counting of which will take
place on the 12th of March; and If there
Is sot another Cromn's nose thrust Into
the affair, It will probably result In hi
peaceable election.

Russia, in Europe, has a population of

has 12,118 miles of railroad, and Turkey, OSS

Tns Democratic leaders are becoming dis
satisfied with tbe compromise plan. When
the Democratic leaders find that the applica
tion of the doctrine which they have uniformly
maintained la fatal to Mr. Tildsx's chances,
they are as ready to dlscsrd thst as they are

This Is tbe latest novel from an American
press, and an American pen, and It has the
elements of freshness and delicacy which will
undoubtedly make it very popular. It Is tbe
story of the ups and downs, mostly tbe
downs, in the life of an unfortunate young
girl brought to a close satisfactory to all
parties concerned. There Is little tragedy,
an abundance of pathos, and several well
