Oiviko to the fact that we neither belleye

we enter a eolemn protest against the cruel
accusation! of the Democratic press Just now
bclnc made against these gentlemen.
Conobissman Stintov, of Pennsylvania,

It must die, and accordingly work assidu
ously to cover every point In the interest of
the little old gentleman of Oramercy Park.

It will be pleasant for the American peo
ple to know that their next President and
Vice President are !n the vigor of their man
hood, and aa robust and hearty aa a oomforta
Lie amount of good health will allow.
Wb anticipate that Governor Hates' policy
will rally the whole people to hla support, ex
cept,, perhaps, that faction In the Democracy
which haa aubslsted solely upon the pap of
the opposition to any measure offered by the
Rapubllcan party for twenty years.
Hancock, of Texai, and Wllshlre of Ar
kansas, did yeoman work In defeating the
schemes of the filibusters. Such men deserve
the confidence of the American people for
having brought about a peaceful settlement
of the Presidential question.
Pooit little Lane, of Oregon Is In ahadway,
He loslsts upon It that he saw serpents en
twining about him, after be had retired from
the acene of filibustering early this noon.
Alls! uubappy youth. Bourbonlsm must
assuredly be the moving iplrtt of his dream.
A mv fleiged member from New York,
who proposes to mske a speech denunciatory
of the Tribunal, submitted to Judge Di'R
ium yesterday, and requested his opinion of It.
"Well," eald the Judge, "iryou want to make
an ass of yourself, I would advise you to
deliver It." .
The Northern Democracy looks mournfully
upen the past, when victory seemed perched
upon their banners, and cry out In their
agony, 'Indeed It Is a most lying thing, that
some Past Tense; so beautifully flad, almost
elyslan-sacred In the moonlight of memory, It
eeems and seems only."
A Brooklyn school boy placed a lead pen

now his little friend is lyln; at the point of
death from tho Injuries recolved. Such prac

bent pin wall set on li without merriment
or especial Joy.
Hecint reports from the Black Hills have
awaken great Interest In tbatreglon, and thou
sands are preparing to go there aa aoon aa the
Spring opens. Reports from Deadwood olty
say that hundreds are anlvlng there every
week. If these reports are true, the Govern
ment and Congress should take measures at
once to give that people a Territorial form of
Government.
Tub filibustering faction of the Democracy
haa run Its race, and passed into history as
the most Imbeclled element that has ever ap.
peered In American politics. To be weak Is not
so mherable, but to be weaker than one's task
Is lamentable. They have been too week for
their task, and now the fact can be recorded
that the filibustering dog Is dead, having died
from the want of common eease and common
honor.
The President haa lisued a proclamation
calling for au extra session of the Senate.
Now the question if, will Senator-elect
OnO'EH, orOregon, who participated In the
attempt to ateal a Republican elector, be
allowed to take his seat! The T.lectoral Com
mission put Its seal of condemnation on this
act, and now It remains for the Senate to
cither pass csnsure on fraud or recognize It aa
a moral and legitimate element In politics.
Wa have been convinced that an error oc
curred In onr Issue or yestsrday In referent
to Senator Alcobx's aspirations to a Cabinet
position. We have satisfactory assurance not
alone that no delegation waited on Governor
Hates at Columbus, In his Interest, but that
Senator Alcorn has not aou;ht the place,
The but clsss of ltepubllcani In ths State
of Mississippi, men occupying the highest
places la the party, are now urging his ap
pointment to a Cabinet position, feeling, as
tbey do, that this action oa the part of Presi
dent Hates will resuscitate tha Republican
party lu Mississippi again, and do much
toward the pacification of the South.
TUK SITUATION.
Tho greatest civil contest In modern
tltnci la oyer, Bnd every political Sell
In tho country bears trace! of the con
flict. Since tho earliest record) of govern
ment among men, the struggle for power
hii bcon the destroyer of 1U creations: and
necessarily so, since the extstence of
society li founded upon organization, the
reprcicntatlTe of power, which li erer
menaced by opposing faction! within or
hostile forces without. The strongest of
governments cannot escape tho evil conrc
quences of Inherent defects common to all
bumin devices, and must, sooner or later,
yield to tho assaults of enemies. Bat gov
ernments of the people are less liable to
suffer from such causes than thoso of sole
agencies; for with such peoples, accus
tomed to the ererclso of power, when un
usual action Is required for their protec
tion, there Is less likelihood of excess In
Us exertion. Riot and disorder are the
peculiar weaknesses of monarchies, having
their source in a conviction of arbitrary
Injustice suffered, and their support In the
tbulU ttens of men unused to obedience to
Impulse.
Hence It is that, although wrought up to
the highest strain of excitement, by real or
imaginary wrongs, our people have passed
through the crisis of their fato without any
outbuists of violence which matk the con
tests with power in monarchic! countries.
Conscious that any injury done them,
by tho enforcement of error, if, in truth,
such was sustained, proceeded alone from
themselves, and was within their owl
power to correct, by regularly constituted
methods, they have not given way to evil
inclinations and extreme counsels, but in
the lace of sore temptation, resisted every
tendency toward a disturbance of the peaoo.
And now, when the climax of discomfiture
comesupon the defeated party.thcre Is notan
instance of disorderly behavior among those
who conducted the losing ciuse. All sub
mit to the authorized decree against them,
and leave to the future the questions of re
dress. It is safe to afllrni there Is not an
other government on the earth which
could have survived the throes of revolu
tion such a posture of affairs would have
produced; and at this moment, as tho in
habitants of other countries comment upoo
the news of the result, they will admit the
fact.
We arc saved from the consequences of
sedition and revolution by the sober wis
dom of the people. Politicians there were
who required only slight encouragement to
have precipitated the worst, but they were
restrained by the voices of their constitu
ents. And one of the prospects of the sit
uation is that all such holding official posi
tions will be relegated to private life with
the close of their terms. Another is that
there is to be a considerable re-organizatlon
of parties in the adjustments to follow the
upheavals of the convulsion we have ex
perienced. Either this is to be the case,
or we are to stand still on the shores of
Time, letting the world advance, while we
sink supinely in Its sands. If present Issues
are to survive during another four years
still severing the country Into sectional par
ties as now, embittering the animosities of
the people and inciting them to Increased
antagonism, then, indeed, do we not only
stand still, but retrogtde.promlsing nothing
but early dissolution. Erer since the close
of the war, though, albeit, more than a
thud of a generation, some of the States of
the Union have been so dead aa political
bodies, that fungus growths have covered
their original victor out of sight,
and parasites have consumed their
substance; and four years more of such
prostration would place them beyond the
power of remedy. Nor are those States
alone affected by the condition disclosed.
So certain as no physical body can be
healthy and strong while some of Its mem
bers are suffering decay, Just so sure Is It
true of the United States that they are not
In a sound and healthy state while some of
them wither of the blight of alien domina
tion. All must live and prosper together, or
together decline and dlssppear. The blood
of the body will not flow in its diseased
parts, and the circulation being arrested,
enervation supervenes, and atrophy results.
So with the State; where the vital streams
of commerce do not reach and renovate all
its parts, there Is degeneration and disinte
gration. And so has the natural action of
the life currents In some of the States been
obstructed by the abnormal condition of
their governments, for these long years,
that the effect is becoming plainly visible
upon the face of the whole Union. This
state of things will not admit of delay.
Some relief must be realized at once or its
fair proportions will dwindle and diminish
like the form of the leper.
The people hope and believe the succor
Is at hand. That the Administration aboit
to commence will develops the knowledge
of political economy and moral cause ne
cessary to the eradication of the disease
preying upon the vitals of the country,
through the incapacity of its members the
States. We have heretofore pointed out
the only means revealed to us which ap
pears adequate to the cure; and as it seems
so Just and proper, so right and reasonable,
and therefore so Important to be considered,
we presume to suggest it to those about to
assume the trust of treatment. It consists
in removing the fungus from the surface
of the diseased part, and stimulating the
body sufficiently to throw off its effects.
And we submit that there Is nothing In the
way of this course, but that morbid fear of
the knife which afflicts all patients wbo re
quire ill application. We are aware that
the consequences which would follow are
considerable and serious; that many will
oppose it, and, If enforced against their
wishes, will withdraw from consultation.
But we are equally confident that when
tho operatlan Is performed, and its good re
suits begin to be seen, they will acknowl
edge their error and return to the counsels
which advised it.
AX EXTRA SESSION OF V0X0RES8.
The Electoral Commluloa has dragged
lU ilow length along to completion and
bow a Berloui question arlMi as to whelker
then li time left for pasting tha appioprl
ations necessarr for tho government ex
penditure! during tho present year. Thus
far bat a few of the appropriation bills have
been completed and thoso which hare do
not nwel with the approyal of the Repub
lican a. The army bill contains some es
pecially objectionable fe&tures. It stlpu
lates that there shall bo no troops stationed
In certain portions of the South, and also
alms at snnnjuit reduction of our already
skeleton-like army. Theso points will be
warmly contested by tho He public ins and
as but to day remains for tho passage of
of the several bills it looks very much as
though another session of Congress will
be absolutely necessary for this purpose.
The Democratic press and leaders will
undoubtedly commence, the coming polltl
lltlcal year, with a series of lusty growls
about tho expense of an extra session. But
they should remember that the filibuster
ing element u thtlr party is to blame and
no one else. The Republicans haro sought
by all possible means to expedite the legis
lative work of the Forty Fourth Congrws,
but the dilatory schemes of the filibusters
have clogged the wheels of progress and
have made an extra session of Congress a
probable necessity. Whether an extra
session will bo called, however,
depends altoetlcr upon the work
of the Houso to day. The dilatory
faction bss It In their power to de
lay legislation and Impedothe necessary
work. Everything depends upon them,
and the course Speaker Randall may
choose to pursue. If the litter does as
manly as he did during the exciting
scenes of Thursday night and yesterday
morning, tho work of legislation may be
accomplished to such a degree as to obviate
the necessity of an extra session. Speaker
Hamdall has It within his power to do a
gocd work now. Will he do It?
THE JEW I'JIESIDEXT'S PLEDGES,
President elect Hayes does not come
among us as a stranger. We are not with
out knowledge of him. Hero are his own
promises, made to us months ago, and they
are made by a man whose p&st life gu&ran
tees the pledee .
1. To hold the high office at a trust for the ben
eQtof all the people.
L To consider honesty, capacity and fidelity as
the only real qualifications lor omoe.
3. To oppose by his acts tho Idea that official
positions are to be rewards lor party services or
rewards for services to party leaders.
4. To see that all publio offices shall give thslr
whole eon Ice to the Oovernment and to the pee
pie.
b. To secure to all public servants their tenuro
aa long as tbelr personal characters remain un
tarnlsbed, and the pe rrormanoe or tbeirduties is
satisfactory.
e. To redeem every financial pledge given by
the United States, and to relieve the business
community from that great obstacle to a revival
of confidence and business, viz.t an irredeemable
paper currency.
T. To aid In placing the public schools beyond
all danger of sectarian control or interference.
9. To secure peaoe at the Hoatb, by orrenixtng
an administration wbioh will regard the interests
of the white and of the colored people both and
equally; and finally, to quote his own words:
''Believing that the restoration of the civil ser

Hopes mid Prospects.
The dye is cast, the flags of the long con
trover j have been furleJ; the decision
haa been rendered; eight beata aovoa,
and one hundred and eighty Ave beats one hun
dred and eighty-four, and during the last
hours of the old Ad ra Id 1st rat Ion the smote of
the fierce political contest rolls may and evi
dences of a brighter future greet the incoming
of the new. Our next President has come
Into onr mtdst bringing with him an unsullied
record of years of public life, and the cluster
log hopes of a peaceful and prosperous future.
Never before elnce the hot shot of armed re
bellion hissed across the prowol the "Star of
the West," has the country been trembling
wiu so mucn doubt and rear, as has charac
terized the past lew days of national exis
tence. These doubts and fears have now van
ished and confidence once more makes light
the heart of commercial life and a reassuring
spirit of peace tends its benign Influence
over the land and sea. Gold drops down to
101'i, and the hopes of the nation leap above
par In this the morning twilight of our second
oentcnnlal. Who shall dare tell us after the
desperate fight and the bloodless victory that
the foundations of the Government are weak,
or that the American Republic Is without the
elements of longevity
From the conflict which has resulted so satis
fastorlally to the American people will come
an abundant harvest by and by. It will be
rich with the fruits of peace and laatlng re
conciliation between the North and South, for
the way Is now clear by which the aectlonal
hate and bitterness which has distracted the
country for ten jears can be destroyed and
the waste places or the south built up and
made to blossom as the rose. And that these
bright hopes and prospects will be realized we
need only to refer to ths following, written by
a man who never has broken his promise, and
who will soon preside over the destinies ot the
nation :
Let mo assure my countrymen of the southern
States that if I shall be charged with the duty ol
organising an Admlnlstratlon.lt will bo one which
will regard and cherish their Interests, the inter
ests of the white and ef tho colored people, both
and equally, and whloh will put forth its bests
tSortaln behalf ef aelvll policy which will wipe
out forever tho .distinction between Norm and
South in our common country.
The DoiourAcca of the North sarcasti
cally remark that the Republicans ere show
ing unusual sympathy and admiration for
Southern men. Tea, we have sympathy and
admiration for Southern men. We avrapa
thlze with them for the misfortune they have
of being allied with the stay-at-home dough
faces, who stabbed our soldiers In the back,
sod we have admiration for them because
tbey have shown a noble spirit In hsflllug the
filibusters in their attempt to deluge the
country with anarchy.

Tho motion was rejected, there being only IS

Mr. WALHRON.IMIcb.), presented the report
of the Conference Committee on the HeQcleney
Appropriation bill, and It was read and agreed to
Mr. CLYMLR, (Pa,), presented the conference
report on the West Point Academy Appropria
tion bill, and It was also agreed to.
Mr. AT KINS (Term.), called up the Annv
Appropriation bill. He said there was not time
now to consider the bill In detail. In view of the
lateness of the session and of the fact that the
appropriation bills wero so far behind he would
move to suspend the rules and pass the bill after
a brief explanation. He wanted to call attention
to the fact that the committee had lumped tho
appropriation for the Quartermaster's Depart
ment, and this was done at the oirnest request
ofthe Quartermaster Oeneral. The number of
enlisted men was reduced to 17,000, and It was
frovlded that no part of this force should be used
o sustain any State Government. It bad panic
ular reference to tho Packard and Chamberlain
Governments, but applied generally to all tho
States With these exceptions the bill dW not
diner from the usual Appropriation bills for tho
He would ask the reading ofthe bill and would
then move to suspend the rules and pass it.
The bill having been read, Mr. FOSTER
(Ohio), said that he was opposed to the reduction
of the array to!7,OC0. He had agreed In commit,
tie to a reduction to 20,0uu. He also protested
against the clauso which so explicitly refers to
tho use of troops In South Carolina and Louisi
ana. Ho believed it was bad legislation to put
on an appropriation bill. At this late day of the
session, however, he saw nothing to bo done but
to pass this bill under a suspension ofthe rules,
Han extra session of Congress would be avoided.
He wanted the bill sent to the Senate, where they
would take action and alt differences could bo
best settled In a Oommittee ofConicrence.
Mr. PAUE(Cal ), asked Mr. Fihiter If ho be.
tieved the Senate would agroe to tho clauso in ro.
latlon tithe employment of troops in tho South
ern Stalls.
Mr. FOSTER did not know, but he did not
think they would.
Mr. CONOLH (Mich), protested against the
passage ol the bill with the clauso relating to
the use of troops In Louisiana and South Caro.
Una. Under that clauso ir tho President of the
United States sent troops there In response to the
call of the Governor, he was liable to Indictment
and punishment, lhat clauio of the bill was
calculated to produce anarchy and bloodshed.
Tho rules were suspended, and the bill passed
by a viva voce vote, tho Houso refusing to order
the yeas and naya on It.
Mr. REAOAN. (Texas), reported back tho

Mr. DOUGLASS, Mr. HOLMAN, and other
gentlemen hopcu the motion to suspend would
not prevail. They wanted the bill to be recom
mitted, so that more exact Justice could be done
to dltiercnt sections of the country.
The yeas and nays were demanded and ordered,
and the House, by a vote of in to 112. refused to
