For Sri'ElMNTENDENT OF PrBl.K' TssTRFr-
JSteplien ID. Pool,
It has always been the policy
of the Democratic party that Fed
eral authorities had no right to
interfere in local affairs. That all
the States composing the Union are
sovereign in themselves, the gener
al government being no more than
a simple confederation of these
states. However obsolete theie
principles may seem under the
higher civililization of the new
nrrlpr of things, they are, in the
- j ' f
opinion of a large part of our best
patriots and statesmen, so essentia
to the purity of tmr national gov
eminent, that it becomes our duty
to constantly hold them up to pub
In the United States Senate las
Friday Senator Tipton said, it was
a serious question whether in sav
ing the Union we had not lost the
States. J his is a true saying ana
is becoming oue of thoughtful im
port to many even who questioned
the right of state sovereignity in
the matter of secession. They
begin to realize that the regulation
of State elections, the composition
of State tickets, the management
of ward caucases nay, even the
upsetting of State governments and
the installation of usurping Legis
latures, are ncr-part of the legiti
mate duties of the President's office.
and fears are being entertained
many besides Senator Tipton, that
the Union has been preserved at
the expense of State authority, the
very basis of the Union.
Ths matter of non interference
in the affairs of South Carolina
may be quoted by the friends of
the President to show that he has
respect for State governments, but
it bears upon its face evident marks
that there were sinister reasons
why the heretofore uniform custom
of President Grant's administration
was not in this case adhered to.
In all previous instances of federal
intervention it had been to put down
the anti-administration party, and
hence it appears to the world the
bar est sham for the President to
go behind a principle which he
had never respected when it is ap
parent to all that it is only to save
his own party.
But the most rediculous consis
tency of our non-interfering Presi
dent is seen in hia recent conduct
in the Arkansas matter. His Post
Master General instructs the Post
Master at Little Rock to deliver to
Mr. Brooks all letters addressed to
" Brooks, Governor, &c," or to
" Governor Brooks," and to Mr.
Baxter, all letters addressed to
"Baxter Governor, &c," or to
" Governor Baxter." Those ad
dressed to the Governor of Arkan
sas the President keeps for his own
share. He has also taken military
possession of the telegraph office at
Little Rock, and this, too, in time
of profound peace, so far as he is
officially informed. What business
he has in the matter, according to
his own idea of non-interference so
recently expressed in the South
Carolina case, it is hard to explain.
It is well that this matter should
be frequently ventilated, that the
Northern people may see what dan
gers threaten the life of the gov
ernment, when Presidents are
allowed to regard or disregard
settled principles at their own op
tion. It has been circulated for a week
or two that President Davis was ill
in London with Dropsy of the heart,
and that his life was in a most pre
carious condition. We are glad to
be able to publish the following
The Vicksburg Herald says :
Wo are satisfied that the statement
of the Graphic is erroneous. Let
ters from Mr. Davis have been re
ceived in this city since-his arrival
in Europe, and they make no men
tion of such alarming symptoms.
On the contrary, those letters speak
of a very great improvement in his
health, and breathe an air of cheer
fulness utterly incompatible with
the statement of the Graphic.

"CIVIL RIGHTS "
In a speech delivered in George
town last Thursday by Professor J.
R. LaDgdon, colored, ,that indivi
dual said "the civil rights bill would
be enacted and become a law. The
judgement of the country had been
expressed. The House would pass
it; the President would approve it,
and you and I," continued the
speaker, "will live to see the day
when we'll oust the colored schools
with common schools, the colored
burial grounds with common ceme
teries, the colored churches for
common churches, and ride and walk
together as common Americans
under a common law."

The Arkansas gubernatorial
quarrel is truly a queer affair: It
seems that Brooks was run as can
didate for Governor on the Demo
cratic ticket ; defeated no doubt by
fraud, and then to get even and
secure the administration's support,
deserted the party which put him
in nomination. Baxter was elected
as a Radical, no doubt by fraud,
and lost the sympathy of the Grant
administration by betraying that
party also. The whole matter is a
mixed up kittle offish, and deserves
contempt throughout. There is,
however one lesson that we might
learn from this affair, i. e. to stop
running for office men of such
doubtful political honesty as this
man Brooks seems to be. This
practice has prevailed in the South
since the war and has doubtless
done a great injury to the party.
A man should be known and
thoroughly tried before he is put in
so higha position as the Governor's
The following sketch is given of
the recently elected successor of
Sctmxer as Senator from Massachu
Wm. B. Washburn, the now
Senator, was born in Winchendon,
Mass , January 31, 1820. He gradu
ated at Tale College in 1844, and
subsequently engaged in the business
of manufacturing. In 1850 he was
a State Senator, and in 1854 a rep
resentative in the Legislature of
Massachusetts. He was subsequently
president of the Greenfield Maas
bank. He was successively elected
to the 38th, 39tb, 40th, 41st and 42d
Congresses as a Republican, receiving
about ten votes against every vote
cast for his opponents, but resigned
his seat in the 42d Congress to accept
the position of Governor of Mas
sachusetts. He was elected Governor
in 1871, in 1872, and in 1873, and
has been a popular chief magistrate.
The Washington Star of Saturday
takes the ground that Governor
Washburn's election to the Senate
cannot fairly be considered a defeat
of General Butler, and that the main
issue involved was the position of the
candidate on prohibition. Governor
Washburn's term expires in March
of next year: and the great fight
between the Butlerites and the anii
Butleritea will then come up in Mas
sachusetts. The New York World publishes
a list of eighteen States which have
held elections since 1872, and in
these it shows Grant in a majority
of 188,965, a net gain to the " Op
position " of G58,356 !
The World continues :
It will also he noticed that fifteen

four-fifths being corn. The spirits

. AND .
Cure For Dyspepsia.
WiLUiMSBCRG, Greenbrier Co., W. Va.
Messrs. Wade, Boykin & Co.,
Baltimore, Maryland :
Gbsts. I used three or four bottles of
your "Liver Corrector" last summer for my
trouble, DYSPEP8IA,and got more relief
from it than from any medicine that I have
ever taken. So great was my suffering I was
notable to do an) thing, was taken with
numbness and giddiness, when i would rise
up suddenly or when I rode on horseback, or
iu other words, was in a manner dead for
twelvemonths, and got no relief from any
medicine until I found your -Liver Correc
tor. "My health is now steadily aad rapidly
improving. Yours gratefully.
J. W. GEE.

sician at the White Sulphur Springs, whose
opportunity for testing its merit is extensive,

pepsia Cure is one ol the very best remedies
for Dyspepsia I have ever used."
Drs. Joxes & Jordan, prominent medical
men in Mecleuburg Co., Va .. who have 6old

can find no better remedy lor the purpose
intended, than the Liver Corrector."
Coi.. Goods, a prorrinent and unusually
intelligent gentleman iu the same county ot
Va., says : "he keeps it regularly in his 1 un
ily and would not be without it.
