Wo nro of thoso who chocrfully'con
ccdo that "to tho vIctorH belong the
spoilt).1' Wo have, therefore, viewed
with entlro complaconoy, and with uo
dlspoHltion to remotiHtrato, tho activity
of tho axo in the decapitation of officials
not In full sympathy WlUi.'tho.adinlnU
tratlon. All rlht, Bay wo, "ofl" with
their heads." Hut there is a point In UiIh
proscription for opinion's fjako beyond
which tho appointing power always be
UttlcH Hflolf by going. That point was
passed by Secretary Borlo.tho other day,
by his ordor through tho commander of
tho Philadelphia uavy yard, that no
men should lyi employed who were not
open and unequivocal radicals, and ear
nest Htipportcn of tho policies of the ad
mlulstrntlon. Thooll'octof this disgrace
ful order was tho discharge of a largo
number of democratic mechanics and la
boring men, who were wholly dependent
upon their dally wages for the support of
themselves and families. Theso men
were not In a position ti Influence pubjlo
opinion. They were humble, quiet, hard
working men, rendering an equivalent
for their wages, and supposed themselves
safe from the reach of political proscrip
tion. But It buoms that no democrat can
be too humble, too ob'scuro to csi-ape tho
guillotine set up by the presbnt adminis
tration. Radicalism Is right, it assumes,'
and It Is therefore criminal to be a dem
The preced&ht sot by the president and
his cabinet officers In tliN and other like
Instances, Is unboqomlng the )ead yf.uli
enlightened government. Jt Is simply
meaii and contt-inptiblei ami will fall to
commaud the approbation of even deoont
republicans And furthermore, it 'Is a
datigcrutis precedent. If democrats, not
office-holders under tho government, but
private citizens, are proscribed for opin
ion's sake by tlio radicals, why may they
not turn and proscribe their prohiirlbers.
Should the exauip'ohet by the govern
ment bo 'followed: should democrats
refuse to patronize radicals and ztcevcrta,
on political grounds solely, what would
be the result? In this city radical busi
ness houses would close for want of pa
trons In somo other city democratic
Iiouhcs would share thesamo fato; social
circles would bfc broken up; the contemp
tible spirit would enter the doors of our
churches, and a tttute of confusion and
sullerlng appaling even to contemplate,
would Inevitably follow. That such a
condition of almirs Is net Inaugurated Is
due to the coolue and forbearance of
democrats and the modcrato republicans.
Tho rabid, Infallible radicals would Imi
tate .Secretary Rorle, and bring such dis
asters upon tho country! 1 ft day, If it
were In their power to do so.
Wo repeat that tho precedent Is a dan
gerous one, displaying a contemptible
malevolence better becoming tho chief
of somo central African tribe, than an
officer standing at tho head of tho United
Htates government. It Is moanvery
little, and will bear bltlor frulu for tho
palate of Its author.

THURSDAY EVENING, APEIL 15, 1869.
A lecture recently delivered In Dtivon
port, Iowa, on tho subject of "Tho Press
and its Mission" Heals thus sensibly the
prevailing praotlco among editors of
puffing gratuitously all kinds of Individ'
uals and Individual enterprises:
In speaking of tho revenues of tho
press, I cannot refrain from expressing
my views on tho subject of free adver
tisements. There is always to be found
In ovory considerable community a sot
of creatures who imagine by somo dis
pensation they ought not. like other
mortals, to pay for what they receive)
'jMiuon imvo exixnoruinary lacilllios lor
malting ineir acquaintance atulnro kind
ly permitted to contribute gifts to their
support. In what other branch of busi
ness could this bo tolerated? Allowing
that ono lias put tho press under some
obligation, does ho not generally expect
to get back more than tho worth of his
horvlces? If a man does tui editor a fa
vor, of a marketable value, let him have
his remuneration iu cash. On the other
hand, requlro him to pay Tor what he
does for him. It Is Just as reasonable to
expect tho carpenter to shingle your
house, and tho tailor to maku your clothes
without charge, as to expect an editor to
prepare and publish matter for another's
benefit without compensation. Lengthy
obituaries, marriages ornamented by ox
tracts from all the poets, and lengthy
pull's of some one's corner lots or lm
provemcnts, come under this class of
advertisements. This custom of gratuit
ous notice, aud advertisements from
whatever quarter, ought to cease, for the
reason that it would bo a benefit to the
printer!s..ppckctsMaud would In some do
grc'o abate ah intolerable nuisance. The
prlntor'spath has more thorns than roses;
and there Is no law, human or divine,
that should oblige him to shoulder the
burdens of thoso who are too lazy or
stingy to take care of themselves. Peo
ple will como to terms where they find
their interests nro involved in a reasona
