An exchange remarks; "It has come,
in the ordinary course of tilings, that a
faithful and conscientious, discharge of
ditty by a public official, is the exception,
and not the rule. This is not the fault, of
polities, it is peculiar to no party, and is
characteristic of no Slate. The fault
lies in a general demoralization of the
public mind, in an inordinate desire to
become rapidly rich; and the adoption
of these means to attain thai result, which
lead to trucking official conduct, and a
general syelotn of private contracts of a
The defenders of I he faith were until
now as blind to reason us a muezzin, but
a schism has'occurred in the republican
parly, and the truth leaks out freely
from tho disappointed. Until now, the
complaints of the South were a cant,
their grievances were illusory, and free
dom, progress, civilization, Christianity,
and a score of other Idea-rings were freely
offered by the party, to bo "as freely
'spurned by the IJourboris. However;
it is now admitted by evory Rauical pa
| per in tho State; that of all tho ? gigantio.
frauds, of all the prodigous villainies, of
all tho guilty felons, which havo"figured"
from the dayri of Satan to tho present
time, no. scheme has surpassed that ol
the government of tho South, by the
party now in power. But say fliey, it is
not the fault of politics ; The word has
been strangely misused wo admit, and
loses its pristine intent, when applied to
misrule, since its import is "that part
^)f ethics which consists , in the regula
tion of government, for the preservation
and promotion of the. peace, and happi
ness of tho governed." . How much
thought, labor, or examplo has been be
stowed to reconcile tho South to the
hateful tyranny of Federal despotism ;
Why did the South choose the arbitra
ment of the cruel Sword, except to avoid
a fate she saw gathering as a portentous
cloud for years, and from whjch she en
deavored to escape..by every argument of
truth, jrWd of justice. This she was de
nied ; she was divested of all rights un
der tho constitution, nnd peaceably at
tempting to withdraw from a confedera
tion which discriminated against her
every interest, she was dragged back by
an overwhelming power, and forced into
the condition she occupies to-day. Not
withstanding the disgraceful rule which
she endured, sho in good faith was led to
various attempts to better her condition.
Sho accepted the olive branch of a com
promise, merely to ensure pence and a
bettering of government. How .has all
. this been meot, except by a repugnant
realization that sho stooped only to fur
ther disgrace. The position of true prin
ciple cannot be invaded wi;h trickery
without a loss, nnd a reviow of the past
eight years, only urges a further vigi
lanco on our part lest wo abandon-every
honorable recollection and sunder every
endearing memory; iii giving even a tacit
support to a class of politics, that has
evoked nothing but shame upon the
name it heralds, aud tho supporters who
? Men possessed with au honest desire,
and intensity, of purpose may Eafcly in
vestigate error, aud form their conclu
sions, freed of intnlorau?o-^wncK Hliberali
ty. The mind beclouded 'with a film of
contempt for what is just, is utterly in
capable of measuring the stern require
ments of.right, and is actuated only by
passion or predjudice. In this day of
political strife, where upon the one hand
are a remnant opposing the surrender of
principle, and upon the other a crowd
clamoring for its overthrow, there must
necessarily be a broad gulf of separation.
No compromise however small may be
admitted, that will not weaken tho cause
of the right, and secure its certain defeat.
The vantage ground is always with wrong,
where right and wrong are equally ar
rayed. The popular vote is for that
which enjoins a freedom from restraint,
and which appeals to mere blinded pas
sion, and ignores the finer discrimina
tions of ennobling thought'nnd aiin. The
only defense of truth is Justice, remove
this and a chaos of unbridled passion and
baseness succeeds as the result of a na
tural depravity. Hobbes says; when
men have once acquiesced to untrue opin
ions, and recorded them as authentic in
their minds, it is no less impossible to
argue to such intelligibly, than to write
legibly upon a blurred sheet of paper."
Upon the grounds of their opinions they
have bestowed so little earnest thought,
that they press on blindfolded through a
labyrinth of errors, with a heart of oppo
sition and resentment, that would not
dare meet their rational convictions.?
We would not be understood, ns oppo
sing the freedom of speech nnd thought.
Such;an attempt would he futile and ua
wise. Main's nature will not bide re
straint, and his enmity is only increased
with tho effort. But wo would be under
stood, that while wo refrain from bandy
ing words upon arguments with such ns
arc on the other side, and accord them
the right to propagate their errors, wc
arc very far from admitting their views
as orthodox, or from giving them any
further notioo than that they do not ex
pect. Tho political tree is rotten at its
core, if to be judged by its fruit. Only
i that and nothing more.
