The New York .Sun. in a fit of po
litical liberality offers Mr. Sumner to the
Democratic party a its Presidential
candidate for 1S7L Tho .Sun docs not
hate the Democracy lean, but the, ad
ministration more, and it is willing to
defeat tho latter by helping the former
ou to victory. The gift is uot likely to
be accepted. Democrats may believe
that tho administration has wronged Mr.
Sumner, they may believe that hp is
honest in his acts and intents; they do
bcliere with the .Vim that slavery nd jJ
issues arc dead. Thoy may admire him,
as a Republican, and deprecate tho treat
ment the administration has shown to
him But defending Mr. Sumner
from the blows inflicted on him
in the houso of his friend, isonc thing,
and taking him into the arm. of tho
Democratic party and hoisting him high
over the heads of those who have looked
upou him in tho ligh't of an avowed and
unchanging enemy, is another. The
last is almost too much to be asked.
The .Sun, in its zeal to punish tho
President and his allies for deposing
Mr. Sumner, must not bo unreasonable.
It inuat promise that Mr. Sumner, if ho
comes to us as a gift, mut como in
an acccptablo slmpc. Ho must repent
of many former political sins and show
his sincerity by reformation in tho fu
ture. Throwing off the vesturo of
Radicalism, hateful to Dctno
cratio eye, and putting on
the raiment of a liberal, generous po
litical belief, which knows no north, no
south, no cadt, no wct, ho must como
to tho Democratio door, knocking forad
mittancc. Now as tho .Sun has offered Mr.
Sumner to the Democrats as a frco gift,
can it prefent him in a form agreeable
to tho recipients? Kven then, tho do
nation may bo refused, the party find
ing at this last moment that tho weight
would bo altogether too oppressive for

Mr. litslr ultrlbuted tha apparent great
anxiety manifested on tho floor about tho
last elections the Radicals had been turned

the sum andtubitanco of the present anxie

Senato to attempt to pass any Ku-Klux

AUUSX OP TUB SOUTH.
On Saturday the long, loan, lank Sena
tor from Ohio-Sherman engaged tho
attention of tho Senate for sevoral hours,
during which time be del I vo rod ono of the
bitterest and most vindlctlvo tirade
against the South that I ever listened to.
He rivalod Drake In bl lie roots, he equaled
Morton In bloodthlritinnss, be wat the
peer of Ben. Butler In hit disregard of the
truth, and only failed In hi attempt to
oopo with Ben. Wade In blasphemy ; at a
cusser Ben. Wsdo Is a leotlo ahead. Yes
terday the able and gentlemanly Senator
from Delaware, Mr. Bayard, tore Mr.
Sherman's tirad of abuse, at It cannot be
digniled by the name of speech, all to
pieces, proving to all fair minded
persons' that tho action of tha outrage
committee wa vilely partltan, and tkat
the lawless actions of bad men have bees
distorted and magnified to secure the work
of apolitical party, both by the Radical
press and Radical leaders and now by a
JUdlcal Sen ate. Be said that the Radical
party knew that their, lea of power in the
South was genu and that thoy were now
retorting to these monstrous measure to
have the electoral vote of the South by
force. Mr. Sherman toon slunk out of hit
teatafter Mr. llayard began, anddurlngthe
four hours In which he was arralgnloglMr.
Sherman and lilt party for tho dolibejato
tlandors uttere I against the South, he kept
hlmiolf hid. I don't think he was ashamed,
as no man otpsblo of shame could
have delivered himself at did
John Sherman. Tho reason tor this vio
lent attack on tbo southern whites I do
not know; evidently Sherman hat tome-
thing to ask from Grant wbon bo feels the
necessity of departing from his usual mild
manner, though he always votes with the
extremo men of his party, and thus out
Mortons Morton in vllenctt of speech.

Grant will depeud more on Morton, Chan

Tha SJreet Ataarleaa Crime.
There It ono member of the Illinois
hnuso of representative! wbo thinks it
time to go back to first principle. Mr.
Mattenburg, of Stephenson, it Out mom
ber. nit bill, introduced on tho Mth
instant for an act "to protect tho purity of
l . n ,1 .,..1. 1. ntrtwln.' f rfT. .
probably, it tho word intenueai "tncrein
named," contains provisions substantially
the samo as are found in somo of tho oarly
constitutions of tbo original thirteen
slates, when poople wero so simple at to
tupposo tbat tho corruption of electors
was, next to high treason, th grcateit
crime against me state.
Mr. Mstsonburg's bill declares that It
shall bo a crime, punishable bv a heavy
fine or Imprisonment, and bv forfeiture of
the electoral franchise and perpetual dis
qualifications for any political office, for
any elector to receivo any money, property,
or oilier vaiuaoio ming, tor going to nuy
election or voting for any person or por-
tont at any election Hold in portuanco ot
law. Alto, for any perron to glvo or offer
to glvo any valuable consideration at any
oiectlon held In pursuance of law. Also,
for any persou to give or offer to glvo any
valuable consideration as an Inducement
to influence the aeticn of any oloctor.
It is not presumed that such a law
would effectually prevent tho crimo; nor
is it believed that It would, under our
party method of executing thq laws, bo
gonorally enforced. But if ono corrupt
voter, or corrupter of votot, in twenty
mould bo convicted and sentenced, great
good would roiult.
AJfar bolter and thorough preventive It
that which would take away tbo Induce
ment to the crime- Tho unrestricted ballot
would prevent moro electoral frauds than
would ever bo punished under tho pro
posed ttatuto: and at toon as member of
tho general atsombly shall bo elected by
the unrestricted ballot, that most valuable
Improvement in our olectoral system will
bo adopted. The law propped by Mr.
Mttienburg ought to bo adopted, alio. It
it tuch a statute as ought to exist and ho
rigidly executed, In every state. fihlcago
BguMr. Boutwell has evidently adop
ted the tactict of tho "Cheap John" ven.
trifiociind.haudutoiisill. in tho effort
to dispose of his new loan, but ho scarcely
firomiiet to bo even to successful as tho
atter Indlvidusl ha been known to be.
I could tell tho bondt In Europe fust
at well at not," grandly announces Mr.
Boutwell, "but I want lo give Ameri
can capitalists tbe first chance."
"Here you aro,' says Cheap
John, "one last chanco before I'm gone.
They want my wbol stock In tho noxt
town, but I "wat bound I wouldn't
neglect you. Who bids?" The Ulicap
John yitoiu ha had It day, and we
doubt whether Mr. Boutwell will bo ablo
to revlvo It successfully in tliediinotltlon
of American bondt. Chicago Time.
Mr Wendell Phillip declares lit be
lief that tho experiment of universal
suffrage Is a failure, so far as great, jdtlee
