FRIDAY MO UK 1H OSKPTiainCB 21. I860
The Third District,
perceive that some person are dis-
posed to delude themselves with the snppo
aition that tbe result of the recent election
in this district, has settled that of the next.
That, however, is by no means the case. If
7000 votes had made an honest man of I'or
tus Baxter, or if his large plurality had even
indicated him as tbe first choice of a major
ity of the republicans of this district, tbe
opposition to him might possibly now be
dropped. But the fact that many mors
voters in the district are convinced of Mr.
Baxter's personal unwortbiness, than before
tHc election. Many a worthy .Baxter man
on a little cooler reflection has been obliged
to own to himaclt that tbe public has ob
tained nothing approaching a refutation of
the serions charge against Mr. Baxter, es
tablished by tbe testimony oi three unim-
K-achcd witnesses and corroborated by his
own letters, and has reached tbe conclusion
that be would prefer a candidate wiicsc re
cord has no such stain. Many another, going
over the canvass in his mind and recalling
the induct of bis candidate and tbe nature
of the means and appliances used to swell
the vote for bim at tbe last election, has
said be could no longer " train in that
crowd."' Many another has asked, if it was
aluolutcly necessary that tbe gratification ol
Mr. Baxter's personal ambition and pict
ure, must be secured even at the cjst of a
permanent divu-ion of the party ?
The last election simply settled so much as
this ; that at that time and with such light
as was before them, a majority of tbe Re
publicans of the District preferred to vote
for Mr. Baxter, ratber than for Judge Hoyt.
It has not SL-ttied tbe question whether a
majority would not prefer J.S.Adams or
Chaplain Woodward, or Rev. O. G.Wheeler,
or Homer E. Royce, or lion. Levi Undcr
wooa, or Hon. Wortbington C. Smith, or
Judge Aldis, or some other good man of re
cognized ability and worth and unsmireLcd
reputation, to both of tbe two leading can
didate in the last canvats.
One great fact cannot bj orcrlojked.
ti.a: there arc four thousand tigkl hundred
Ri'l uhlicar.o iu this District ,wb cannot vote
for Mr. Baxter under any circumstances.
Tliri cannot regaid him as a Et r presents
tire of Vermont ; tbey oppose hitn on prm
ciph, und thty have not tbe tlighti et idea of
withdrawing that opposition, until tbey are
ready to abandon all resistance to corruption
in our polities, to acknowledge an rlcetion
to Congress as a life-lease ol tbe office, and
to lie down in abject sul minion under tbe
control of the incumbent while he lives, and
wuen he diee.of tbe successor whom he may
name in bis will.
Exactly in what way tbe prefer
ence oi the ftoflc, in this matter, are to
find expression, we cannot certainly say. We
understand, however, that measures are in
progress to secure a convention, representing
those who desire a restoration of unity and
harmony in the party on some new nun.
Any such movement, we think, will have
the support of the great majority cf the
friends of Judge Hoyt in this quarter, and
we should hope of many of Mr. Baxter's
supporters. Certainly tbe permanent well
being of the party which must be tbe main
stay of tbe country in the stormy times be
fore us, r.s it has been in tbe past, ought
to be regarded, rather than the claims of
any individual, be they what tbey may.
The w Yotfc llenili! cntts detents to
the Johnson I'elicy.
The it'ew York Herald is constitutionally
loaligner of all men and measures that
favor tbe principles ol universal freedom,
and is ever ready to favor despotism so long
as despotism is in tbe ascendant. Neverthe
less it always keep an eye out to watch for
turns in the tide. Only a short time ago
it predicted an overflowing success to
the Johnson policy in the fall elections. Tbe
"radicals," "miseegens," "nirger-woi ship
pers," "disunionicts," Ac, by which names
it designates tbe millions of loyal people
wbo upheld the government in its four years
of conflict with the Southern rebels and their
northern abettors and sympathisers were
to be nowhere at the polls. The Johnson
policy was to sweep the political deck dean
rs with a broom. But if tbe increased re
publican majority in Vermont gave its start,
tbe overpowering victory in Maine bas fairly
opened its eyes ; and it io already prophesy
ing defeat to tbe conservatives. The "Maine
results," says the Herald, are "very decisive
and very sigmScrat." And it finds truth
ful explanations of them, in part, in the
displays of rebel malignancy at tbe South.
It says- :
However guilty Northern abolition radicals
may have been in fomenting tbe New Orleans
runs, the ugly fact stands forth in gloomy relief
that Southern whites and negroes sympathizing
with the Northern radical party were deliberate
ly murdered bv Southern desperadoes and muni
cipal officers nho bad been notoriously active as
Southern rebels in the late rebellion. General
Sheridan's despatches upon this bloody basnets
hsvs evidently left an impression upon the
Nor them mind prejudicial to the cause of the
sreedy reconciliation oi tbe two sectors. Those
runsnly elements utaiuiu mu uu tu
much to do in precipitating the Sonthern States
into the abyss of the late rebellion, against the

Eoathera people, have been again at their dia
bolical work, and in the stubborn fact that such
scents re enacted in Southern cities with tbe
connivance of the local authorities, and that tht
guilty parties escape without pu .ishment, tbe
Northern mind is naturally drawn to tbe con
clusion that FrtsVdent Johnson's maznunimity
is thrown airsy and that the intractable tpint
of the rebellion still prevails throughout the
AYbat the Maine eltctiou portends, is thus
set forth :
Whatever insy tare been the real causes,
however, operating to brinj about the extraor
dinary results of this Maine election, it is too
decisive againct the democracy and conservatives
to be limited to Maine. We arprehecd that, as
in all our political contests cf the past of a na
tional character, the result in Maine indicates
the eencral drift of the elections conins after it
thrcnghout the Northern States. The prcspect
now of a conservative majority in the next
Concrets is very doubtful: the prospect cf an.
ether radical Congress is better than it has ap
peared at any time since December hut In
short, this Maine election cf 1S95, will prob

The Itcw York Democratic State Conven
tion, at Albany on the 12th, nominated for
Governor John T. Horrsux of New York,
and for Lieut. Governor Roaxrr U. Parr.v.
of Albany. The latter is Johnsonian, and
the platform adopted reaffirms tbe declara
tions of the Johnson Philadelphia Conven
tion. This action of the N. Y. democrats we
think must settle the question of the cam
paign in that State, in favor of tbe Repub
lican ticket. With Gen. Dix, who was the
Weed candidate for Governor, at the head
of tbeir ticket, the democrats ard Johnson
men combined would have stood a chance t-i
carry the State. Bnt it is evident that
Weed Jc Co. can no more ran the democratic
machine in that State than they could the
republican. Tbe Democrats arc very willing
to take tbe plat farm of tbe Jobuson men
(with the TJ S. patronage) and their coes;
but when it eumcs to selecting a candidate
they choose a bimon pure son ol Tammany.
There is no likelihood that any considerable
portion of tbe republican vote can be trans
ferred to Mayor Hoffman, and with proper
exertion. Gov. Fen ton is as good a re

Kestoratiou at the outh I nder tbe Con
stitutional Amendment ol Congress.
Tat lop and clouds in' which tbe great tpies
tien cf Southern restoration have been covered
up since the adjournment of Congress, are at
length making away. We kr...w now what to
d . We lave been taught by the famous mari-
ner, Dank-1 Webster, after r fsiug about for
many days in thick weather sc I in an unknown
Ma. 'o avail ourselves of the fi.st gbmpe of the
sun for an observation and a m-kming, in rrder
to ascertain how tar the win U ai i tlie waves
have drivri m from our ru; cur- . We thus
find from tuc bearings of the M tine -iecrioa that
the true coarse tor the Southern Sta'is and tbe
ailministraliua is laid down in the i.-'itutional
amendment of Congress. In other Wt.rds, we
are convinced from the significant retails of the
Maine elcctias, that Ibis amenlment will carry
all the Northern States yet to come, and that
against the solid North, any further resistance
from the administration or the exclu led Sonth
ern States, will be a waste of lire-. f -.lnh ad
suicidal to sit concerned
We weul 1, therefore, urge upon President
Johr-jon the statesmanlike policy of a truce with
Congress, and an active co-operation with the
fixed and predominant public opinion of tbe
North, in behalf of the immediate restoration of
the South en the basis of this constitutional
amendment We have shown that there is notli-

rebel disabling and eonfiscati n plan of Thadde
l us 8tevtns as the propositions put f- rth from time
to time by Andrew Johcson. It is a cimpromiee
' which tbe President ought to hai c a loptcJ, in
co-operation with Congress, and which he cujat
, now to adopt at all events, because i.i' c nflict

otherwise. The inevitable result is as eleir to
the searcher for the true situation oi t:in? as

he light of tbe sun throueh the breaking clou Is.
Nut one of the States which voted (or Lincoln
and Johnson will tail to adopt this constitutional
amendment, since New Jersey, the only North
ern State whore vote was against them, has led I
1 3 fur th." North in the ratification. J
The policy and duty of Pnsidjat .1 .tinjou, j
therefore, are as clear as a mathematic il demon
stration, and equally dear is the policy of the
still excluded Southern Statu. We b tve ear
nestly advocated the President's policy; but af-
r me. vcruici o: toe jury, ine argument is at 1
an end. i
Tbe example of Teuneee in the rmdiaiicnof j
the aauodneat, is ta only alrt-raafife ft.r rh 1
other Southern States. Tennessee, in ratifying .
the amendment, onened the door to tbe admis
sion oi her members into both hoose of Con
gress. She, by that single act, is reconstructed
and restored. Certain individuals of her people
who violated tbeir oaths to supper t the Federal
constitution in going over to the rebellion, are
disabled from hoi. I'm in alm Affi t,Mwft
until absolved by a two-thirds of each bouse of
Congress; but by that vote they can be re:cstatcJ
even in Congress Itself, if duly elected by their
niversa! in Bruce and universal re on sntm-
tion, or limited sntfraga and partial rtprrsjnta
tioa in proportion, just as each S:nte, from
Maine to Texas, may for itself elect, is tbe con
dition of this constitutional amendment. South
Carolina, for instance, has a population of
700,000 of which Stm.OOO are whites and
400,000 are blacks. Taking 100,000 as the
number required for each member of Congress,
sbe win have seven members if sbe grunts uni
versal suffrage; bnt if ah cuts off all her Mack
she loses four members, and proportionately a
the sufirage is restricted by equalization of color,
property or education to white or blacks. This
may stem pretty severe upon the a uth. but it
appbis also, more or less, to every Northern
State iuttludiog New York which has a negro
property qualification (two hundred an 1 fifty
dollars), and Massachusetts, where they have a
reading aad writing quabneation. All the
Stat a will nave to modify their laws to univer
sal suffrage under this constitutional amend
ment or be cat down to a greater or lea; extent
in tbe;r numeration for Congress.
This amendment is going through. There is
no other settlement for tbe South. The Gover
nors of the South ought, therefore, to call their
Legislatures together at once and ratify this
amendment, so that with the maeling of Con
gress in December they may be all restored to
both hoases. In this way they can et onoe se
cure the balance of power in Songress and put
an end to any further attempt of the radicals to
apply new restrictions of Bute restoration
The Southern States, too, will thus be put in a
. . . . 1. ... m . .. .
position to take tbeir ground and shape their I
coarse to some purpose in view of the PresUen- I
tial election. What has been done in Ti
amounts to the rate of admission. The way is
plain, the door is open, aad in this simple act of
ratification the South will be restored to its bal
ance of power. It is the ultimatum of tbe vic
torious North, and the South will lose much and
gVin nothing by delay In its adoption.

The Senate is called to order and organiiH
without delay. Uprises s Senator and directs
attention to a couple of coal-grates glowing with
fires that radiate a genial warmth through tbe j
Chamber. There grates arc an innovation. Be- j
hind tbera are two fire-places whose functions
tbey have usurped. The Senator denounces
the coal-grates as if they were generating a
deadly pestilence. His energy increases as he
proceeds, and rises to snger as he rvttcbes
the climax and Queries by what
right these wretched invcotion "
have been thrust into the prises rs of the Ssa-
at, com pallia- its members to breath a sicken

same at rain, aad declares that aaless these a
paralleled nuisances sre instantly removed it
will be impossible to proceed with the basin
of the station. He further announces that awe
Senator has already withdraw Iron the cham
ber, and will remain permanently absent, unless
the wood tree in the fire places are restored,
and the coal grates banished. Senator P. wbo
has spent much time in lower latitudes than
Maine, whereby his temperament may have
been softened somewhat, now rises and expostu
lates with fellow Senators, and urges them to
' a Kttle forbearance. He says that tbe
supermtendent er the Capitol only desires to
make a fair trial of tbe grates. He is confident
that with slucht modifications improving the
ventilation aad general arrangement, they may
be made all that the most fastidious can desire.
He trusts that after the expense and care be
stowed in preparing and adjusting the grates, a
trial of a few hours at least will be granted
them. "A few hour !" echoes an indignant
Senator interrupting. Are the kw-makers of
a great Commonwealth to endure a condition
bordering upon asphyxia for "a few hours '"
He would ask if it is proposed by the bland, the
courteous, the distinguished Senator, Mr. P.,
that the gentlemen constituting the Senate shall
siller fetid coal gas to be administered to them
st the risk of health if not life itself "for a
few hoar !" He would inquire if this is to be
borne quietly and without resistance "for a few
hoar," In order that a subordinate may have
the opportunity to try an experiment. He
hopes no each pusillanimous course will be pur
sued by the Senate.
Other Senators then speak in similar terms,
all seenvag to imply that they would grind the
two vicious pieces of hardware in question, to
the minutest dust of infamy, if H cowld be don
by legislative action. As the nearest approach
to this they pas a very peremptory order,
directing the grates to be removed forthwith,
an l instantly adjourn until the order is executed,
burin tbe session from this date thuing fires
of hickory and maple render the climate cf the
Senate chamber a perpetual summer. After
enjoying tbe comfort of such an arrangement,

examine into certain alleged frauds by bounty
broken and others, who are supposed to have
swindled th State aad various municipalities,
in the matter of paying soldiers bounties. Also
present several witnesses who are waiting to be
examined, and a stenographer to take down the
evidence, and as many citizens of Augusta and

is evident that there is a good deal of excite

who have grown suddenly rich will " catch it."
and that some of the State officials who are sus
pected may " hear something drop" before they
get through. The newspapers are forbidden to
publish any proceeding?, and that is why so

convention, we have taken it for granted
that each had some good excuse for his ab
sence. As to senator iylmuiHta, we happen
to know that be notified the State Commit
tee, before his appointment as a delegate,
that professional engagements wb:ch could
not honorably be postponed, would prevent
his attendance on the Convention. We
know, too, that while attending a meeting
ot tbe Retrenchment Committee, in New
York, the week preceding the Convention,
Mr. Edmunds had several interviews with
leading Southern gentlemen wbo were after
wards prominent in the Convention, in which
he earnestly urged on tbtm tbo duty of tak
ing a decided stand tor impartial suffrage,
as the true policy and tbe ono that must
eventually be adopted. The Journal ought
not to be ignorant that Mr. Edmund:) has
not failed to improve a number of " oppor
tunities to identify himself clearly with the
Republican Union men of the North and the
Loyalists of tbe South." If not satisfied on
that point we should be glad to point Mr.
Walton to two or three passages in the record
of Mr. Kdmunds,which will remove all pos
sible room for doubt or excuse for tbe sugges

Tnx rsjcirrrcL accident at Johnstown
Pa , on Friday, by which thirteen persons
were killed atd more tlian one hundred
wounded, was occasioned by the breaking
down of a road bridge acros tbe canal, upon
which a crowd had gathered to sec the Prcs
dentiai party pass ; just as the tram was
about to move away, the timbers supporting
tbe bridge snapped and precipitated the
crowd a distance of fifteen feet to the hard
gravelly bottom of the dry canal. The rest
of the bridge toppled over upon tho mass of
human being. As the bridge broke in the
centre, its two halves formed an inclined
plane, along which all were slid with light-
niDK specj and pitched on top or those who
stood in the middle and went down first.
Probably not bvs than four hundred persons
were on tbe main bridge and one thousand
on the whole structure. The killed were
mainly crushed to death by tbort who fell
upon tbcm ; but few were hurt by tho tim
bers or planks. Splinters caused a large
proportion of tlie lleeh cuts and contusions.
