The New York World makes tbe
following estimate of the persons out
of employment in New York, and a
portion of New England. For the
latter, the estimate is one hundred" and
sixty thousand divided as follows :
Maine ten thousand, New Hampshire
twenty thousand, Connecticut and
Rhode Island, thirty thousand and
Massachusetts one hudred thousand.
Add to this sixty thousand for New
York and Brooklyn and we hare
(two hundred and twenty thousand
without any estimate for the other
northern States, with theif crowded
cities and towns, which it is fair to
presume will more than double the
number. Of this' half million, ho
doubt, many thousands enlisted in the
army to break up the. prosperity, de
stroy the lives and desolate the homes
of a people who never harmed them,
but who, by their agricultural pro
ducts, furnished these suffering thou
sands with employment and support
for their wives and children.
Pnnisbment inevitably follows
wrong-doing, and the meanest Radi
cal is not proof, at all times, against
the goading of a guilty conscience.
The ruin of the South is telling with
fearful force upon the prosperity of
the North, and if pride did not
suppress the utterances of henest con
victions, thousands of its deluded
people would openly curse their own
folly and the villainy of their puri
tan betrayers. We have rend of the
fool who killed th'6 goose that laid
the golden eggs ;, that folly has been
re-enacted by the people of the North
whose severe and protracted suffering
in consequence thereof, is inevitable
beceuse it is a decree of retributive
justice from which there is neither
appeal nor escape.
The recommendation of old Spit
fire for the Vice Presidonoy by the
Memphis Radicals, is not likely to bo
recieved with favor outside of the
'ring' whence it came. That negroes
should look upon him as eminently
fitted for that position, is iu keeping
with their ignorance and his conduct.
Having betrayed his own race, he
clings to tlio negroes, attracted by
that sympathy which brings together
birds of a feather. The tie is not that
of blood, but of kindred moral and
ntcllectual attiibutcs. He has flut
tered them into the belief that they
are the favored sons of God. and per
suaded every Dinah that fcho is the
rose of Sharon, or the night bloom
ing Cereus. These deluded creatures
would be truly ungrateful, if they did
not admire the man who has descend
ed from the pedestal of God-given
superiority, to equality with a race
that has never risen above barbarism,
except in a state of slavery; that has,
in the lapse of time, left no footpriut
in the path ot progress and who are
now, in their native jungles, no fur
tuer removed from barbarism than
when first known to the ancient
Egyptians, four thousand yearsago
Their religion is still the worship of
reptiles; their agriculturo goes not
beyond the diggiug of iudigeuous
roots and their chief artielo of com
merco is suoh of their people as they
would rather sell than cat.
This is the way old Brownlow
talked about his dear friends, until
the devil ambition took him to
tho top of Cumberland mountain.
pointed to the State Capitol, whisper
ed of office and emolument and
promised him all, on condition that
he would worship that devil and love
Sambo. The temptation was ir
resis'tublo, the iniuiaeulutc Brownlow
full and is still true to his bargain
Surely the forfeiture of his soul is
an equivalent for tho Vice Presiden
cy. The radicals id Congress, fearing
tho decision of the Supreme Court in
McCardle case, have gotten up a bill
to prohibit that Court from taking
cognizance of any case that may arise
unler the reconstruction act. They
do not feel suTo eveh under the re-
quiretneut of two thirds of the Court
to give validity to its dooisious, and
hence this extreme measure. They
are warned that such legislation will
defeat them beforo
u it i, ci
loar that they intend to rely
for success upon , bayonets rather
than votes, such warnings serve only
to quicken their movements towards
a thorough despotism.

THE GREATEST POLITICAL EF
FORT OF THE DAY.
Extracts from the Eloqaent Address
of Don. Dan. W. Yoorhecs.
Delivered before the Democratic Stale
Contention or Indiana.
The Issues Clearly Set Fort.
TerrlbU Lashing of the Badlcals.
From the eloquent and logical speech of
the Hou. D. W. Yoorbees, delivered on the
Btb of January before ths Indiana Demo
cratic State Convention, we make tbe fol
lowing extracts. We regret onr space will
not allow ns to publish it in full :
" They (tbe Democracy) com to Uphold
tb dignity of labor and to protect the far
mer, mechanic end every industrial class
irora tb wicked ravishes of thus drone in
the public hive, who davonr all tb taxes
and contribute none themselves. In the
presence of such a convention, assembled for
such mighty purposes, I may well stand un
covered, an with deep gratitude thank yon for
tb warm evidences of your confidence and
esteem, as well as for tbe numerous marks
of approval and kindness with which you
have distinguished nie in tbe past. In my
solemn opinion, I am now in tbe presence of
that class of men and that cbus of princi
ples which will soon take In charge the in
terests of thfe nation, and bestow upon it a
destiny more brilliant and commanding, more
happy and powerful, thau ever tbe eye of
man bos hitherto looked upon all tb annals
ot tbe human race. Tbe boose, of our faith
is this day founded upon tb rock of ever
lasting truth. It will stand. Tempests may
rage around . it, and earthquakes rock its
foundations, yet it will stand, for sternal jus
tic is it indwelling spirit."
Of Andrew Jackson be said :
- On this day, fifty-three year ago, a mil
itary chieftain, at a single step, strode to tbe
front of the world s theater, where all nations
gazed, in startled wonder, upon bis towering
and splendid form. He was crowned a hero
ot giant proportions, with the universal ac
claim of tb civilized world. Every quarter
beneath the sun paid tribute to his lame.
Uut, standing on this dazzling and danger
ous eminence, with his head suddenly lifted
to tb very stars, Andrew Jackson found
something still mightier yet than the sword
witn which ue bad achieved so much re
nown. It was tbs civilized law of his coun
try. " lie bowed that more than princely bead
before it, and, with uosandaled foot, a Mo
ot old at the burning bush, treated its
piecinU as holy. In that hour his triumph
was far prouder and grander than when the
British forces Hod before him in dismay."
Of tb sin of th Radical party, Mr. Yoor
" Tbe disunion of tb Radical party to
day is a sin of willful perfidy ; a sin against
knowledge and consvieace ; a sin against its
own solemn Injunctions ; a sin airaiust the
living, whose hopes It has mocked, and
agalurt . tho dead, whose sacrifices it has
turned to empty nothing. Its sin is nnpar.
donaUe. Let it be buried in tbe potter'
field, where tb parties of the put, who
bave betrayed tho people, sleep iu ever in
creasing intamy togotber."
Taxation assumed this form :
" In the midst of these darkening days.
when the laborer goes about the streets in
queat of bread, and grinding is low, and the
skeleton of want looks iu at tbe doors and
windows of many an honest household, you:
are taxed by Congress for tbe support ot
standing army beyond w hat any other peo
ple endures beneath the sun.
'The people ot tbe tailed estates are pay
ing over fivo hundred millions of annual
revenue. More than one-hair or that most
enormous amount is swallowed up by the
Congressional policy of reconstruction. If
tbe farmer or mechanic pay twenty dollars
to tbe tax gatherer, ten of it geoes as a tri
bute to a vast military government, which
exists in plain, open and confessed violation
of tbe Constitution. If your property is ad
vertised on the trees, at cross-roads, on tbe
doors of public bouses for delinquent and
Dnpald taxes, remember that they would not
have been half so beavy, and you might
ensily have paid lueui, if tbeslauding army
had been aboli.bed and the expense of gov
erning the f-iothern States left where it be
longs, with tbe people of those states. '

Gen. Hancock has Issued an Important or
der relative to registration in Louisiana and
Texas. ' Tb occasion for It is thus explained
by tb N. O. Picayune :
When tb Boards of Registration mad so
many rejections of voter who did not come
wiihio lb letter, or eveo remotely nnder any
latiludinarian Idea of tbe spirit of tbe law,
tbey were chiefly blamed for it. It was af
terwards made manifest that they acted un
der secret but anonymous instructions, dis
tributed to Ibem from headquarters. These
did not boldly and courageously bear tbe
signature of tb officer under who envelope
they were sent forth, but tbeir paternity aud
authoiity were only to be inferred from their
having been thus sent, and from lb prompt
'relieving' ot any registrar who failed to act
upon and in accordance witp them.
These pnvato instructions, wnivn seem to
hav been followed in alt the other districts,
altered aud modi lied to suit special case
would seem to hav been prepared by parti'
san agencies and thrust into th baods of
tbe military commander, witn an injunction
lo entbrc them iu bis district. This be
would not content to do under bis own slg
nilur or direct older, but simply tent tlim
to tb registrars with a prival intimation
that tbey must b followed.
Gen. Hancock revoke tb "memoranda
and "questions'" which wer thu issued for
tbe guidance of th registrars, declaring them
"null and of uo effect," aid directing ''that
the member ot tbe boards are to look to tb
laws, aud to th law alone, for th rule
which are to govern them in th discharp
of tb delicate and important duties imposed
