FOR TICS-TRESIBENT r
FRANK F. BLAIR,
whorie coinrmintctUlnri may b ieon
mr our first page, propounds questions
to answer which would require an
cluboratot routine upon government in
general, and, In particular, the prln
clplus upon which arc based the once
free lnnUtutUn of till country. By
flie pori'licai trutha thus uY-vclojied, it
would bo necessary to test the consti
tutionality of the existing govern
ment of this State, and the legality
of nil its acta. But this labor, even
worir we competent to perform it, is
jvif Accessary, since every intelligent
man knows that this government was
concelved-lrv tlio brain, ef traitors to
constitutional Mhoi'ty,. brought forth
nmld the strifo of contending armies
and reared under tlio protection of
Since no honest man will deny' this
YUtcmciit, it is needless to go behind
the incontrovertible fact for proof that)
our State government Is unconstitu
tional in its origin, and that its acts
must partake of the same lawless
character. An invalid government
can no moro enact vail 1 laws than an
impure fountain can emit a pure
gtrenm, But, conceding, as nil honest
and intelligent men do, that Brown
low's government is the rlckctty olf
fpring of accident and usurpation,
propped and sustained by external
force, st ill It Isrecognl.ed as a dc favtu
government, the validity of which
rests lunreupoir thoquiot acquiescence
of the people than upon any claims
to legality which its supporters can
JUit in considering the Justice- or
propriety of refusing to pay the taxes
levied by this governmeut of more
than doubtful validity, tlio decision
nhuld lie determined rather by the
actual condition of things thatr by
rcfcrcrvco to those political axioms
If the disfranchised people, in every
county in the State, were to meet in
county convention and resolve to pay
no tax until their political righto are
fully restored, and lit the snmo time
make ft manifest that It will bo un
healthy for any man to bid for projw
eny io ne'fsoiu lor raxes, tno move
ment mght, by stopping the wheels
if government, result Iir the restora
tion' to the people of the ri'ghfs now
tyrnlinnusly withheld from them.
The militia force necessary to enforce
the collodion of taxes against such i
popular demonstration would, of It
Keif, dwtroy the credit of the State and
reduce it to bankruptcy. In view of
Mich results, our tyrants might prefer
concession to force, since It would le
evident that the latter would Involve
their own ruin along with that of the
Were Brownlow and his clique the
only obstacles tothere-estaUlshmcnt
of popular liberty in Tennessee, the
tasK or removing them would lie m
H'htastoglveus no concern as to
the particular mode of doing it; but
under tho present aspect of national
politic-, we can take no slep towards
the assertion of our rights without
Voin'nx in collision with federal
power. It Is not with Brownlow, but
the Radical Congress we have to cope
in any effort at emancipation from
carpet-bag tyranny. And knowing
from experience that the federal arm v
is nt the service of Brownlow, so long
hi the present dynasty rules at Wash-

Wh at a commentary upon the mu
tability of htimau eVente tSe w'orth-
Tcmncs of political theories, and the
fitness of man! for self-government
is the fact that fri Republic, after
having indoctrinated' Europe with a
love of popular liberty,, quietly nub
sides into a despotism, Just When"
ether countries are raising the stand
ard' of constitutional liberty above
the rtfliis ' of monarchies. Future
generation, will read, with amaze
ment, the" history Which wHl tell
them that ttie" government of the
United States, tn long a model of
proserou liberty, -donned thrcast off
mantle of Spain which" so long cov
ered the bloody secrets of the Inqui
sition and the dark deeds of a most
ruthless despotism. -
It 4M!cms that the lately defeated
Radical candidates for Congress, are
candidates for the sarno position ; not
before the people by whom they are
repudiated, but before that august
body known as the lower house f
Congress. This self-constituted board
of electors is in the habit of electing
to Congress Radicals who were de
feated by the popular vote in their
own district, and the more signal
their defeat the better their curmoes
before this tribunal. '
AxTiioroit West Virginia Is
bounded in part By Ohio and Tenn
sylVanfa, it seems not to have been
effected by the results in those States,
It may be that the Radicals thought
it so safe, being governed like Brown
low's kingdom, they deemed it un-
necessary to spend money there for
the colonization of voters. This neg
lect gave the Democrats a fulr show
and their success took the Radicals by
surprise. Tho returns are not com
plete, but the Democratic gains reach
nearly three thousand and they claim
the State by three thousand majority,
The New York Herald says that
the movement in favor of a change of
candidates was set on foot by the pol
iticlans who had made large bets on
the final result. Believing that n
change of names would annul their
bets, and being frightened by tho re
sults of the State elections, they
hoped, by the change, to' save them
selves, without a thought for tho fate
of the nation. Another evidence
thnt money is the god of the North,
and that Its influence is almost om
Accounts from Iiouiaiana of daily
and nightly conflicts and murders
seem to Indicate very clearly that the
IUdical programme of a war of races
is Ixitng carried out in that -hapless
State. Surely the people of the
North are blind as moles, or as fiend
ish as devils, if they continue to up
hold tho party that is converting this
beautiful land into a hell on earth.
It is a singular freak, in the history
of notions, that the people of Spain

Another severe shock of earthquake
this minute has serrt people shrieking
witn terror into tne streets, it is im
possible to tell at present whether
anv more damage bus been sustained
by shattered buildings, or any lives
lost. The streets are thronged witn
people in their night clothes, fearful
of what mav come next. The atmos
phere is thick and the weather warm
This morning me excitement is
somewhat quieted; but since the
shock' at 2:13 a. m. the people evince
no desire to return, but remain In the
streets discussing the probability of
the recurrence of another' disaster
similar to the one of October 21st.-
St. Louis, Oct. 23. The Democrat
has a special from Little Rock, Ar

Jas. Coolsey, an out-spoken Re

New York, Oct 23. The Herald
states that several stock b rockers suc
ceeded in locking up in two or three
banks some thirteen million dollars,
and a panic in Wall street to-day is
imminent. Unless other banks come
to the assistance of the distressed to
day, there is danger of a serious finan
San Francisco, Oct. 23. Details
of the destruction of property in tho
interior or tne estate ny tno eartn
quake of the 21st have been received.
Alameda county suffered the most
damage to property. . Extending in
all directions buck from Sun Lenndro,
there were numerous fissures in the
earth, from some of which came
clouds of dust, and from others vol
umes of water. San Leandro creek,
for some months dry, is now a run
ning, rapid stream of water. In some
places hot water and steam gushed
forth. The villages of San Leandro
and Hay ward's are almost in ruins.
Brick buildings nro thrown down;
hundreds uninhabitable, and numer
ous wooden structures considerably
damaged. At Hayward's only one
building was uninjured. Alameda,
Brooklyn, and Oakland all suffered se
verely. The destruction isgreatatSan
Jose and Redwood City. The great
brick and ndobe mission house at San
Jose is a mass of ruins. At-Sacra-
JllJiUtpvfifctfmr3'l tfgrrr"nnI the
loss small. Petnluma, lleatbsbtirg,
Santa Rosa, Vallejo and Mariner felt
the full force of the shock. Chimneys
and Arc walls were thrown down.
The damage to property is consldera
able. At Los Angelos and Visila the
shock was slight. No damageat
Santa Cruz. Monterey and Wat
sonvllle suffered little loss,, In the
State of Nevada the earthquake was
sea rely felt.
In San Francisco the committee of
architects, appointed by the Board of
supervisors,- report tne city nail un
gate. The building will be taken
down; meanwhile the city officials
'and courts will find other buildings
not injured to any great extent, and
officers will ' find temporary quarters
elsewhere. - The damage to school
houses Is trilling. The schools open
as usual on Monday next.
The" United States marine hospital
building is condemed by the proper
authorities, and will bo demolished.
The patients are at present encamped
on tho grounds ajolnlng the hospital,
no proper accommodations as yet
having been provided. The f !ustom
housols wrecked to such nn extent
that it probably will not bo occupied
again. The officials havo removed,
temporarily, to Haywood's building,
on California street.
An Army of laborers are at work
to-day on the shattered buildings, and
removing debris from streets. The
merchants are showing no disposition
to abandon thelrproperty or location.
Soma structures are being taken
down, and others repaired. The vic
inity of the wrecked buildings pro
sents a busy scene.
The shock at 2:15 this, morning has
done more damage to the injured
buildings. Some chimneys of the
different manufactories, which suffer
ed considerably by the first shock,
now have to be demolished and re
built. No definite estimate of damaged
property can bo made until a proper
survey of the entire city Is made.
Some place the loss at three hundred
thousand, others at two millions, es
timated. The latter figures are prob
ably the nearest to tbo true loss, ns
quite a number of buildings have
been thrown down and will have to
! reconstructed, and extensive re
pairs made to many more.

less than Philadelphia.! This illus
trates how a swindling Jlonubllcau

practically disfranchised one-third of
tne voting population. This year
there Is a vigorous effort being made
to surmount these register aimcuities,
purposely Intended, not to keen oul

look well for Now York to poll 8.000
votes less than Philadelphia. New

Fuffaio, N.Y., October 22. Gov.
Seymour spoke here to-night The
conclusion of his remarks were as fol
lows: ' '
If the Democratic party succeeded
at this election it could not of Itself
make or amend laws. It would only
be able to hold the violent leaders of
the Republican nurtv in check. , It
could do no revolutionary net, so fur
as power is concerned, a democrat
ic President would stand in the same
position held by Andrew Johnson.
His vnrorous nature, his bold and res
olute defence of constitutional rights,
and his able assertions of tho true
principles of Government, have not
saved him even from the violence of
those opposed to him, much less has he
been able to inaugurate any evasive
measures, or tiny act calculated to (lis
turb the public peuce. Our hope is,
in this election, to put into the execu
tive offices those who could stay the
tide or corrupt ion: those who could
save from further injuries th'e system
of constitutional government: those
who could protect our peoplo from
legislative wrong. We feel that our
success would be n rebuke by the
American people of measures which
nave occn conaemneu so wrongly by
manv leading ltepubltcans-and lie
publican presses, as well as ourselves,
If the candidates on our ticket should
prove capable, honest, and true to
their trust, at another election the
peop'e of the United States could co
father and make a Democratic House
I lie character or the Kenate cftuld be
changed; and I believe that the day
is at hand when the judgments and
votes or tne American people will
restore again power to that time hon
ored party under whose Influence our
country was made treat and prosper
ous. None of these chances could be
made violently; none could endanger
punnc peace, but they would all tend
In the end to promote the welfare and
prosperity or tne united Htates.
