bility about It, when we consider the
legitimate conwqm-nex of Radical
doctrines about universal efuallty.
Tho young woman In question, like
thouannds In the North, has been
taught la common aehooH, Pundny
bcUquIb aud pulplU, that the negroes
are a noble and jerecuted race, Infi

In case of a rape committed by a
negro upon a Southern white woman,
Clen. Mower rescued the prisoner
from the gallowtt to which he was
legally condemned. But when his
own daughter, voluntarily, submitted
to the dlHgrnce which was forced upon
the other, tho negro, lew guilty than
his paramour, is secretly murdered by
order of tho upright Judge .and su
preme military sat fap. This murder
takes nothing from the guilt of his
daughter, but adds ImmeHHurably to
the Infamy of the father, and we cau
hut look upon the reported disgrace to
his family as an act of retributive
Justice most wisely administered.
As above stated, the story may, or
not, bo true; but it is precisely the
character of fruit to be gathered from
the doctrines of abolitioniHm. Those
who believe in the unqualified equal
ity of the races, aresiuiply conMtateut
when they act in accordance with
that lcllef. Many such are too igno
rant to read the marks of inequality
tamped by the baud of nature upon
tho types of mankind no less dis
tinct than those visible upon different
ypecles of animals. ; To those thus
taught, the buzzard Is the peer of the
eagle, the gorilla of the negro, and
the negro of the Caucasian. In ac
cordance with such belief, there can
be no moral or natural iniquity In the
process of miscegenation, aud Gen.
Mower is dishonest in condemning
the conduct of his daughter, and in
tensely criminal in tho murder of her
We care not what may befall Mow
er and his daughter, Individually, but
for the honor of tho Caucasian race,
wo hopo the Htory is a fabrication.
Tun telegraph reports that even
Radicals are Indignant nt the propo
rtion of Greely, that the liogu Ar
kansas Senators be admitted to vote
In the last act of the impeachment
farce. If this would le more dis
graceful than permitting Wade to
vote for his own advancement, or for
any other Senator to vote who has
prejudged tho cam, we fail to see it.
Indeed, If the negroes who chance
to be iu tho gallery were invited to
vote, it would add nothing to tho in
famy of the whole trial, and nothing
to tho disgust of a people quies
cently looking on whilst corrupt iou
is disintegrating tho government and
decomposing all tho elements of civil
lilierty. The conspirators need not
fear any serious opposition to any
thing thoy may do, for the simple
reason that the masses have liecomc,
through Radical teaching aud exam
ple, as corrupt as it Is possilue for hu
man nature to be. Cannibalism
would scarcely slunk any, save the
victims of the enormity.
Ik Andrew Johnson wishes to die
gracefully, he ought, U-fore the Sen
nte cuts tho platfurMi, issue a procla
mation of universal amnesty, and
special pardons for such pure and dis
tinguished men as Davis and hvo. If
ho fail to do this, it will evince the
samedegrooof malignity towards the
Southern people that characterized
him as military Governor of Tcuncs-
bco, and cause his nanio and memory
to ho execrated by good men every-
wnere. jie sees that the Radical an
Kcondas are preparing to tighten their
colls around the best men of the South

lignity ami diabolism, and is as bad
as ilutlcraud Stauton if lie fail to In

much loss produce.
It is no unusual thing to see, In
Northern prints, lamentations over
the decline of Protestant Christianity
north of tho Ohio, Could it bo other
wise when so muuy churches have
lioeu converted Into halls for political
gatherings und pulpju Into stands for
clerUul demagogue who havo vied

the devil? Of all H,e Use Radical
politicians, the clergy are the basest
and most dcnoniuc lu spirit. To ex-
pect the Protestant churches to nour

This state of things argues nothing
against Protestantism, but proves a
strong and growing disgust with
Protestant clergymen, and conse
quent doubts of the efficacy of a faith
which has failed to preserve the moral
integrity of so many who profess It,
and which fails to deter it salaried
propounders from entering the ser

No matter what may lie the decis
ion of the Senate, the overthrow of
the government is already a fixed
fact. An emasculated Executive and
a Supreme Court subservient to the
will of the usurpers have the effect to
make Congress supreme over the co
ordinate departments and with the
sword and the purse in its hands, it is
idle to expect that it will part with its
lowcr, or Buffer it to be wrested from
them through the agency of the bal
lot box. Bayonets and money will
carry the next election, and another
four years of Radloal tyranny will
enslave the country for generations
to come. A people too corrupt and
mercenary to resist the first blow at
their rights and liberties possess too
many of the attributes of slaves to be
awakened to a love of freedom until
driven to despair by intolerable op
pression. Should this time ever arrive, the
present generation of knaves, fanatics
and fools will have entailed upon pos
terity all the wrongs and sufferings
endured by tho people of England ere
they wrested tho magna charts from
the grasp of enthroned despotism. A
brave spirit and a sturdy blow at the
right moment would have secured the
blessings of freedom to the present
and many sulisequent generations.
But this spirit was stifled by the nox
ious influences of unhallowed ambi
tion, selfish knavory anil blind fanat
icism, and the arm that should have
struck tho blow was unnerved by fear
or by motives even less honorable.
The result is a government subverted
anil a whole people enslaved. If this
picture Is too dark, let those give It
brighter colors who believe that the
virtue and Intelligence of the few can
control the frenzied Ignorance of the
masses first maddened by knaves
and then corrupted.

Washington, D. C, May The
President's defense was concluded
this afternoon: by the argument of
Stanbery, who- come from a bed of
sickness to discharge this solemn
duty.. After speaking half an hour
he was utterly exhausted and by per

fiidentof winning a case. He claluft
forty votes for conviction.
In view of Wade' anticipated pro
motion to the Executive Department,
his future policy toward the South Is
of the highest importance. The other
day he was addressed on this subject
by a Pennsylvania member of the
House, who said that from informa

hended trouble between the whites
and blacks in those Stutes. Wade
said lie thought it was quite probable.

force in that section. His friends sug

paying an enormous tax, and protes

support a large military force. Wade
said it would be remedied by requir
ing the States to foot the bill, and
when reminded of their impoverished
condition he intimated that their
lands were abundantly able to meet
all demands, as the constitution in
Alabama ami other States provided
for raising negro soldiers the protection
which will lie extended that unfortu

men, the rule has been for the opera

Just before voting. They voted them
