[From the Providence Journal, Repub, April 6.]
Republican. party is undoubted
ly tj very Ntrong party. Its principles
are those ouwiueu the war lor the
Union whs conducted, tho supremacy
of tho national authority, universul
freedom nnd equal right and all neces
sary guarantees for tho futuro socurity
of the Union. These ideas tiro thoro
ughly' wrought into the mind ofthe
people, 'nnd they have given to tho
party position thut has proved thus
far impregnable. Every asuault that
has boen niaJo upon it has ended only
in the discomfiture nnd overthrow
Ihe assailants. Every obtitacls that
has been intorposd to the carrying out
of its principles has been brushed aside,
and tho party has acquired an nscen-
dency fieldom ife,-or etrnalled in tho
history of American politics. But even
tho 'Republican party, preeminent
its ascendency hss beon nnd is, cannot
endure everthing whieh ambitious and ex
treme men undertake to a.cconij!lih in
name and to fastrii upon its character,
nnd it will eni long become necessary
to determine- whether there aro not
'lertain limits beyond whieh it will, not
in supporting tho e.itreme view of frome
of it's members. Tho integrity of
great party that has saved tho Union
and it ability to entirely consumniuto
the wort; oj reconstruction, .ro of very
creut importance, while tho schemes
of this or that politician who may
ranked .among its leaders fado away
into comparative insignificance. Un
less n clear dmtinction bo -made be
tween tho two, we hold that tho party
is sure to sutler, and us efficiency
niolulnnss will bo very materially im
paired. Bomoofthc schemes und ten
deucios now fostered by cortain Repub
lican politicians, nre, wo btlievo. mis

impeachment of tho ri esid jnt. Thi
in known lo be favored and eren de
termined upon in ndranco, by a small
knot of members of .tho House of Rep
resentatives, .distinguished for their
activity and ical in every cause which
they espouse. They regard the I'rts
idcnt as in the way, nnd they aro deter
mined to put hi)n. out of the way.
They are calling upon the Kepubh-
cau psvty to assist them in doing this,
nnd to nssumo tho responsibility of the
proceeding. It may be they will sue-
ceed; ii wo may judge from their lan
guage, they certianljr erpei to succeed;
but if they Accomplish their purpotJ
it is easy enongh to 6ee that the Jlepub
bllean are. ruined. To put n President
out of office for in cro" political couiid
erntions, under tho guiso of impchcivi
mcnt, would be sure to alienate and dis
gust the. people of the country, and they
would" iiistine'iivcly desert tint party that
should do it. If so solomn an net 19
ev.or performed, it must be only on tljm
clearest grounds ot tho public seeuflsr,
and most obvious proofs of trcitffihablo
intentions nnd moral incapacity.
Fault of personal charaetor, errors
of judgment, differences with Congres
either in opinion or in policy; con
structive misdemeanors thatliAve to be

bnrtiAtn orators, will never miswer.
Any'i'ronsronal adrainifltration thff

would bo regarded as a victim of legis-
littivo injustice nnd oppression, nnd'(
tho party that nhould sanction iu

wild of indignation. '

ganization more serious are threatened. As a spec
imen of these wo may refer to Senator
Siininer'fc bill nlready before, the Sen-.
nto, for forcing a uniform suffagc upon
nil the States. It is nothing to say ol
such a messure, that it will work but
a very slight nnd unimportant chnngc
in the States, nnd that change will b
bo in the direction of freedom. The
tiling itsolf is beyond tho power of Con
grcos to do. It isconcedml thet such a
measure may bo mado the basis of re
construction in the rebel States, and
this has doon already done with the
entire approval ofthe Republican par
ty thronghout the country. The idea
of forcing it -upon tho loyal States.
however. Is u peculiar crotchet of Mr.
Sumner's for which ho, is now solici
ting tho sanction ofthe party. Should
that sanction be given to this or other
similar measures tho consequence, wo
believe, would be exeoedingly injurious
to tho continuance of its power.
Wo think also that the party is in
great danger offorgetting tho pledges
it bus so often given for on economical
administration ofthe Government and
a permanent bksisof financial fbcnri ty.
Its legihlatiou during tho past winter
has beoii too much dovotod to wcrr
heading off tha President nnd far too
little in securing prosperity for the great
'imterests of the country. It is, to .be
euro, n mat tor of congrnulation that
Congress refused to pass some of
measures proposed, but tho policy
the Republican party cannot fee justi
fied mainly bo what CoDurress has
notdono. Tho poonlo will ask what
it has positively done as well es what
it has nndono. We copTess that
hava been amazed nt the lavish style
of exrtend'uaro authorized bv Con-
gress, while tho country is still bnrden-
ed with iU tremendous debt, and
think much moro caroshould have bocu
to out- financial and industrial
affairs. It ts, however so much easier
get on with no legislation than with
bad legislation, that thero will, altef
nil, perhaps, bo little complaint save
of tho enormous cost of tho .Govern-
ment, which is fast becoming a matter
of serious concern, aa, indeed, it may
well bo. .
The military politicians of the Repub-
party aro aUo likely to bo, sooner
or later a source of no trouble. Some
of them were politicians before .they
were military mon, while others
ull thoir importance to their prestige
o Boldiessj but ono nnd all, they
already too mnekirf the habit of
peal'ng to the opinion of the military
portion of the people for the further
ance of their veiws. Thi portion is
very largo, but they havo no interests
separate from all other people, And it
is not well to appeal to them as if they
had. Such chieftains as- General
Ranks and General Butler, General
Logan and General Schenck, Lav al
ready done more of this-finnis cithcrbe-
coming or safe. A manifestation of
the same spirit is seen in such clap
trap resolutions as those about the
Confederation of the British provinces,
tho Fenian insurrection, and the eight
hojr system, and in the'- lot them
tt'rvc" speeches that have been deliv
ered by these military legislators a
bout the people in the South- who are
destitute of bread.
The disintegration of a great national
party begins by very small degrees. The
alienation of a few and the lukewarm
nessof frw nioro are tho eddies that
indicate the turning of the lido. An
election here and there goes wrong.
The party loses ilt prestige and iis
confiJonco in its own principles. It
at length grows dospernto and aband
ons all principles, until overthrow and
ruin become inevitable. We, therefore
utter our word of caution to our Re
publican triends' and say to them
there is a limit beyond which it is doi
tht:r right nor safo to go. Tho lino
must be drawn and tho discrimination
must be made ciear between the wild
funnies ol iudividuals and the approved
doctrines of the party. We suffer
enough from the ruero association with
extreme and reckless men; let us not
be mede responsible for their extrava-

It is not tho progress that has caused

Only k fow years sinie, a woll-kno-

Her husband's demise induced

ly after .his arrival he succeeded in
gaining an introduction to tho fair
widow, and his visit soon assumed
such a character and frequency as not
to be misunderstood. Ho cameto woo,
and conducted the campaign of lovo in

experienced a peculiar joy in listening
