EXTRA-LEGAL RESORTS.
'-'• - suppose that most of our readers
have noticed that lynching is very com
mon in several of the Sotrthern States.
Reports of cases of this kind occur at
very brief intervals, and it almost invari
ably happens that the victim is a negro.
A few days ago seven negroes were thtvs
murdered by a mob in Tennessee. They
were charged with the murder of a white
man, but the trial had not been concluded
' when the mob took the affair into its own
hands. The Legislature of Tennessee sub
j sequently took the matter up, and passed a
resolution condemning lynching, and calling
on the Governor to arrest and punish the
lynchers, but it is not believed by those
who understand Southern sentiment that
anything more will be done about it.
■Whenever the people are prone to resort to
methods of. this kind, it is certain that
they have very little faith in the law.
This principle, however, is equally applica
ble to very different cases. There is a cer
tain class of men in this country who are
continually betraying want of confidence
in its institution?, though they do not
seem to realize the significance of their
position. These men are eternally cryinc
out in alarm about some fancied menace
to their liberties. They are perpetually
imagining that the republic is in danger.
They are always running . to the walls aid
looking out for the enemy. They are for
ever discerning some lurking mischief in
the situation. These are the chronically
scared persons who have at intervals ever
since the war been shrieking against " cor
porate monopolies ;" that being the phrase
by which they are pleased to designate the
aggregations of capital, skill and enter
prise to which this country owes ,two
thirds of whatever prosperity and progress
it enjoys. It never seems to occur to these
timid souls that the Constitution of the
United States may be a sufficient bulwark
against any kind of encroachments, and
that these continued outcries are in effect
impeachments of the institutions of their
country. For if indeed there is nothing to
hinder the growth and consummation of
any kind of corporate tyranny, the
founders of the republic must have made
a sorry botch of their work, and this will
hardly be admitted by the majority. The
truth is that the ■ recurring agitations
against corporate enterprises have their
spring and inspiration in that spirit of
malign envy which crops out in Commun
ism and its congeners, and which would be
satisfied by nothing less than the confisca
tion of all - property, and a general
"divide." An immune deal cf fustian
and claptrap is put forth in this connec
tion. and every demagogue and idiot who
.:' mouths the - street cry of the hour thinks
it sufficient jto pretend that he is moved
solely by a passionate and consuming love
v for, the. dear "People." , Traced to its
foundation all this is neither ; more nor less
than the social antagonism which has
v always existed between the "Haves'"
and the "Have Nots," nor does it signify
how much it is disguised by fulsome
- pretenses of public spirit, -; The his
tory of civilization . should ' convince j
: sober-minded men that progress necessi
tates ! the expansion and aggregation of
capital and enterprise, and that these con*
j solidations not ; only produce no evil, but
: that they remove . many abuses, and tend
to greater economy and diminution of frie
- tiin. They ■ are, in fact, ■■ in "no wsy
menacing to freedom, bus on the contrary
'. their development tends steadily' to,- ele
vate the poorer classes,' to '■: give them less
j arduous -. and f debasing . employments, \to
diversify and extend industry, to stimulate
production in v all its . forms, and thus to
strengthen the progressive energies »f the
- generation and make the world better and
happier. All the agitations which are in
: opposition ; to ■ the free : development -; of
these agencies are, whether consciously or
not, in the line of retrogression. They are
checks upon ' civilization ; J brakes applied
to its course : blindly ;if ; not maliciously.
They start t cut from : false . premises and
ths¥ work to; false conclusions. Intelli
gent men , should, vVlheiefore, regard them
with suspicion, and question their pur*
poses and tendencies closely.

THE ASSASSINATION OF THE CZAR.
'The assassination of the Czar is a useless
and stupid crime. -. It involves no conse
quences in the least degree . advantageous
to ' any class of ' the people of Russia. If
the Nihilists are ' responsible for , the cruel
I deed they have by perpetrating it only jus-
tilled the moat rigorous measures that can
be taken for their ' extermination. The
cause of human freedom is never advanced
by brutalities such as this. A system is in.
fault, and a man is murdered/" • To what
rational end is this done ? The Nihilists
have not killed the Emperor of Russia.
They have simply assassinated Alexander
the Second. The dynasty survives, and it
remains as powerful as before. No step
in advance has been gained by this crime,
No light dawns through ■ such means. \ All
. that is made clear is that the most elabor
ate precautions are in the long run unavail
ing when the life of an individual is sought
by a determined and reckless secret organ
ization. That is a very poor result to ob
tain at such a price. But the blunder Of
the j Nihilists , does not end here. ; They
have made Alexander the Third Emperor.
Have they anything more to . hope from
him than from his father ? - If we may
■ judge from his past history assuredly they
have not. i The new Emperor has been re
cognized hitherto as an upholder of what
is called the Old Russian party. He is a
pronounced Pan-Slavist, it is true ; but
there is nothing in his past to indicate that
he sympathizes with the democratic aspira
tions of the restless elements of the empire.
And it must be remembered that the men
tal position of an heir apparent is necessar
ily very different from that of a reigning
sovereign. With responsibility comes con-
scrvatism. With supreme power comes
the desire to maintain supreme power.
It' is the doom of autocracy that it never
can indulge in liberal policies without en-
dangering its existence, and with the fate
of his father before his eye 3 there is little
probability that the new Czar will lean to
wards democracy in any form. .
The murder of the late Emperor points
once more the satire of history. It is
seldom that the tyranny of a strong ruler
is avenged during his own lifetime. France
was crushed under Louis the Fourteenth,
but his reign ended quietly. Louis the Six
teenth was a liberal and well - meaning
prince, bent upon extensive reforms, and
anxious to relieve the sufferings of his peo-
pie. His measures gave them the first
taste of liberty and justice they had en
joyed for generations. And the first use
they made of their recovered power was to
destroy their emancipator. Under the
firm rule of the Emperor Nicholas Russia
groaned, but remained passive. His mania
of military government converted the
empire into a camp. He banished dis
cussion. He excluded ideas. Ho sent
thinkers to Siberia. He encouraged blind
and servile obedience. The people pa-
tiently submitted to all this, and even
when his system had broken down under
actual experiment they remained quiescent.
Alexander the Second not only contem
plated but carried into effect' unexampled
reforms. He gave virtual freedom to ten
millions of serfs. He removed the prohi-
bitions from literature and the press. He
permited the universities to inculcate po
litical doctrines. He opened the door to
progress and a higher civilization. And
tor all this his reward is assassination.
It is true that in the later years of his
reign he had largely abandoned his earlier
views in regard to the safety . of ; per
mitting popular ideas full scope, but it is
also true that this change of policy waw
forced upon him by the reckless intem
perance of the Nihilists. He had been
assisted in his emancipation policy by the
nobles, . who might have tendered ; that
policy abortive, but when this class
realized' that the new conditions demanded
sustained exertion on their part, they
appear to have lost their patriotic enthusi
asm, - and for some time had seemed
to be observing the struggle between the
Government and the anarchists with com
parative apathy and indifference. The
Nihilists had forced the Emperor to adopt
harsh measures, and then they cited
those measures as justification for their
murderous plots. The folly, of their
course has been shown from the first in
the vagueness of their programme. The
truth is that their leaders have been
almost without exception visionaries, who
were not capable of anything but de
structive efforts. Assassination is a very
vulgar and brutish business, and demands
no intellectual force for its organization,
and the Nihilists have never risen above
assassination.
No useful end has ever been served by
such methods. On the contrary, their em
ployment almost invariably leads to the
reinforcement of rigorous governmental
policies. The Revolution might have
saved France but lor the Reign of Terror.
That put Napoleon Bonaparte at the head
of affairs, and brought on the Empire.
The Reign of Terror cost France fifty years
of progress. The assassination of Alex-
ander the Second will probably push back
the hands on the Russian liberal dial in the
same way. The man dies, but the system
remains, and it is the system which is alone
responsible for existing abuses. '■ For years
to come, however, every appeal made to
the Russian Government for more liberal
institutions will be met by a reference ', to
this catastrophe. - "This is the result pf
"an attempt to introduce greater free
"dom," the new Czar may well : say,
" therefore it is safer for me to . revert ito
; "the stern repressive policy." v
- There Tis no argument in assassination.
It is in fact an . abandonment of all argu
ment. No instance of it can be . cited
which has bettered the condition of the
supporters of the policy. The Nihilists
have done what they have long been trying
to do, and they have after all accomplished
nothing. ' A somewhat . weak but not nn
amiable sovereign has been killed, but
his successor is already seated on the
throne. The system is intact, and its
enemies are stained and made infamous by
a futile i and wanton ; crime. Nihilism is
anarchic and ruthless, but it does not rise
to the dignity of rational ; revolution.
MAHONE CASTS THE DIE.
Senator Mahone , has made ' his choice,
and it is with the Republicans. Of course
this is his own affair, and ; perhaps he has
been somewhat astonished '•■ to find himself
so central a figure of late. -He \ was per
fectly free ', to take his stand with either
party, however,' and no imputations can lie
against him for having made the election
he has."' The : Democrats have no right to
be angry with , him, > neither have the Re
publicans any .: reason .to " claim . a victory.
The outcome was after all quite capricious,
and the party . which has " had . the luck to
secure J this ,; erratic . Senator ji. may well
enjoy its fortune . with as little cackling as

St. Petersburg, March 14th.— The bells
of the city are tolling, and there are every
where to be seen manifestations of mourning
on account of the assassination of the Czar.
Public buildings', stores and ' residences are
draped in black. Offices of legations, Gov
ernment Departments, stores and places of
business generally, are closed. Thrones of
people are in the streets discussing the ter
rible crime which has ' shocked the whole
country. ' The arrangements for the funeral
of the murdered : Emperor will be made on
the meet extensive scale, befitting the high
rank of the dead ruler.
It is the prevailing opinion here now that
the Czar of Russia will find serious obstacles
confronting him at the outset of his reign.
Humors of Nihilist plots are rife, and fears
of outbreaks and further assassinations are
expressed. «-'."'-' "■ ■ ■

Czar of Poland, Grand Duke of Finland,
etc., hereby make known' to all our faithful
subjects that ii has pleased Almighty God in
his inscrutable will to visit Russia with a
heavy blow of fata and call her benefactor,
Emperor Alexander, to himself. He fell by
the hands of impious murderers, who had re

their attempts because they saw in him the
protector of Russia, the -foundation of her
greatness and promoter of the welfare of the
Russian people. Let us bow to the will of
Divine Providence, and effer up to Al
mighty God our prayers for the repose of the
pure soul of our beloved father. We ascend
the throne which we inherit from our fore
fathers, the throne of the Russian Empire
and Czardom and Grand Dukedom insepar
ately connected with it. We assume the
heavy burden which God has imposed upon
us with firm reliance upon His ' Almighty
help. May He bless our work to the welfare
of our beloved fatherland, and may He guide
our strength for the happiness of all faithful
subjects. In repeating before Almighty God
the sacred vow made by our father to devote,
according to the testament of our forefather,
the whole of our lives to care for the welfare
and honor of Russia, we caU upon our faith
ful subjects to unite before the altar of the
Almighty God their prayers with ours, and
commend them to swear fidelity to us and to
our successor.

St. Petersburg, March Dr. Dvoni
achine, who was among the physicians first
summoned to the Czar, immediately brought
the necessary instiuments for the amputation
of the legs, which were | held by the flesh
only, the bones being broken. ; Blood flowed
copiously from the lacerated wounds, India
rubber bandages were ' applied, first to the
right leg below the knee and then to the left.
The Czar's right ' hand, 'i. on | which - was ; , a
glove, was found to ' be greatly ; lacerated.
His marriage ring was broken to pieces
and driven into the flesh. The surgeons
tied up the severed arteries.and at length,
under the influence of sulphate of oxygen and
ice, the Emperor opened his eyes and respi
ration became more apparent. ' Chaplain
Bjainot availed himself of the interval of ap
parent consciousness to administer the sacra
ment, and for. a moment hopes were enter
tained of the Czar's life, but a minute or two
afterwards his heart ceased to baat. During
the final flicker of life members of the family
surrounded the bed. The arch priest re
cited prayers for, those in extremes, all pres
ent kneeling. The spectacle was heart-rend
ing. ..*. ; yy'-ifl-JJfl-
Colonel Djonibki is confined to his bed,

All the officers of the guards, civil officials
and court dignitaries met to-day at the Win
ter Palace to take the oath of allegiance to
the new Emperor. When all had assembled
the Emperor and Empress and the Imperial
family issued, from the cabinet where the
dead Czar lay. In passing ; through St.
George's Hall, on the way to the chapel, the
Emperor stopped before the Guard of Honor
and said with emotion : "I should not like
my son to ascend the throne under such cir
cumstances as at present."
The Czar, it seems, was warned against at
tending the parade Sunday. yJPfI
After alighting from the shattered carriage
the Emperor approached Roussakoff and
ordered his removal.
rt The police had difficulty in protecting the
second assassin from the fury of the crowd.
j One of the Czar's legs was shattered to the
top of the thigh, the abdomen was torn open
and his face injured. The surgeon declared
amputation impossible. .
PRECAUTIONS TAKEN— PERSISTENT STATEMENT.
St. Petersburg, March 14th.— The Czar
has handed over to General Melikoff the en
tire direction of affairs, and has summoned
deputies from the country at large to consult
upon the best means to adopt against aearchy
and sedition. The garrison was kept ready
all night in case a disturbahce should occur.
Large cumbers of -, Cossacks j patroled the
streets Monday. c /v.'. .- JPi-.-y ';
It is persistently stated that General Meli

unearthed the plot and entreated the Czar
not to expose himself publicly. ■

New York, March 1-lth. ln an interview
with a Times reporter, Julius Schwab said :
"And in America, the fate which has over
taken Alexander has a point. There are
those in the United States who should heed
the warning, for it bodes disaster to. some
among us iv high places."
To whom do you refer ?"
"I need not particularize, I see. ' But the
heads of American monopolies have cause for
trouble. They are oppressing the people of
the land, and for just such oppression Alex
ander was killed." .
"And you decline to name these monopol
ists who are thus inviting death *v . -V
"Well, I am willing to mention Jay Gould
and William H. Vanderbilt as representatives
of the class to whom I refer."
" Do you mean to aver that there is really
danger?".
"Themene, mene, tekel upharsin is writ

Washington, March ; 14th.— : expecta- j
tion that the contest over the organization of ,
the Senate would be uncommonly interesting j
to-day rilled the galleries at an early hour, i
and the floor was also crowded ; throughout j
the afternoon jby members of the j House of
Representatives, giving the chamber the ap
pearance of a regular "field day," which the
exciting character >of the proceedings fully
justified. -. The chief sensations ;of the ; day
were of course the fierce attack of Hill upon
Mahone, . and the hitter's vigorously defiant
reply. It was the general comment that
Hill's speech materially strengthened j the
solidity of any compact that may have been
made between Mahone and the Republicans,
as the Georgia Senator's threats could not
possibly have any other 'effect with a cour
ageous mau like Mahone than to nail his col
ors to the mast. ( The scene was very striking,
as Mahone, "slight in figure but bearded like
a pard," paced up and down the area in front
of the Clerk's desk and hurled his scornful
retorts at the large-framed Georgian, and the
galleries broke out in applause and the floor
with roars of laughter when he quickly re
plied to tha question whether he • wa3 not
elected to the Senate as a Democrat by say
ing that he came hither as a " Readjuster," a
description which his present attitude in the
readjustment of the Senate organization, and
of political power in general, was at once
perceived . to be notably felicitous. On the
whole, the little Virginia Senator, despite
the suggestion of the game-cock in ids manner
and appearance, made a decidedly strong im
pression upon his auditors today, and was
conceded on all hands to have justified in this
impromptu debate his local reputation as a
fine speaker and a man of power.

PROCEEDINGS IN THE SENATE.
Washington, 1 : March 5 14th.— McDill "of
lowa and Cameron of Wisconsin took the
oath to-day. _ •
Pendleton called up his resolution respect
ing the reorganization of the Senate com
mittees.
Allison moved an executive session. -
' The Democrats opposed and the Republi
cans favored it.
The . ayes and noes being called, Mahone
voted with the Republicans, which created a
profound sensation, followed by applause iv
the galleries, as it was regarded as conclusive
of his intention to vote with the Republicans
throughout.
Pendleton made a speech, saying he knew
nothing as to the alleged bargains, but the
omnipresent and omniscient members of the
press had v whispered that there have been
mysterious and extraordinary visits to the
other end of the capital (the White House),
and had connected the name cf a distin
guished' Senator witb ? the dispensation of
patronage and organization ; that. there had
been a conference at the capital, in which
champagne and satisfaction had been almost
equally present. These, too, had been con
nected with rumors as to the organization of
the Senate. He did not know what was the
foundation for these rumors which had filled
the air. The imputation on Democratic
members was unfounded.
. Allison's motion to go into an executive
session was rejected — 37 to 35. v
, Hill of Georgia believed that when all the
seats were filled the Democrats would still
have a majority, since Mahone would vote
with them. V-vOT;;.-".
Conkling stoutly denied this. •
A resolution was here introduced and laid
over, offering condolence to the . Russian
Government and people, vv
Finally Pendleton suggested that the Dem
ocrats should withhold two votes and let the
organization proceed. They desired no mean
advantage, and no contest of physical endur
ance.' He moved to adjourn, pending which
the vote "' of condolence with Russia was
adopted unanimously.
Adjourned. ' v - V
INTERESTING SCENE IN THE SENATE— MAHONE
UNDER FIRE.
Washington, March 14th.— In the Senate
to-day Pendleton affirmed that the Demo
crats had nothing to gain by organization ex
cept the power to proceed with the confirma
tion of a Republican President's | appoint
ments. It was a dangerous precedent. The
Republicans proposed :to pair : two elected
members here present with two men yet to
be, and .who may never be elected, B It was
no undue haste that they were exercising in
trying to organize. "V , • -
v Conkling said : " He who excuses accuses."
Pendleton was fleeing when no man pursueth.
Ha had either thought necessary to defend
his party or create some impression on the
contrary. He referred to the Democratic
caucus as an Ecumenical Council, which had
at last wearied of the question how the inde
pendent party of the Senate was to be cap
tivated, - It had become weary of arranging
the machinery which was to force the gentle
man from Illinois (Davis) to walk by the
wheel of the Democratic chariot.- After it
had exhausted the resources of statesman
ship it came in with . a report which was de
fective in some regards.' ■• For instance, it had
put both Senators from Ohio on the Judiciary
Committee, , in order that that great State
might not only be j the I land of law but the
law of j the land. vlt seemed to him tbat
nothing fl could . be ' more .'; unwarrantable,
more . lacking in ;■. utility 'or ■■■ more scant " of
propriety than for the Republicans to con
sent to the organization _« of i the Senate
against the constitutional majority of - the
Senate, : to j the end that that organization
might be overturned on Wednesday or Thurs
day next. ;It seemed to him that such a pro
ceeding would be beneath the dignity of the
Senator. He might say, in reply to the gen
tleman from Ohio, that the suggestion as to
withholding votes had not \ originated on the
I Republican side, but had come from a Demo
! cratic Senator who was able to vindicate him
self. He commented on : Pendleton's asser
tion ■>. that ; champagne and satisfaction had
j hunted in couples at certain dinners as being
i extraordinary, and he hoped that it would be
modified. -x He '. also ; hoped ' the - Democrats
would withhold two votes and let the organiza
tion proceed, or else go into executive session.
a Hill emphatically declared that when every
seat was filled the Senate would be Democratic
ias now. •■'-. Otherwise jhe , had | been deceived.
Thirty-eight Senators were sent here to sit as
Democrats, i? That is one-half of , the ; Senate.'
One member (Davis) was sent as a Democrat,
by Democratic votes, and he had announced
in lofty and I patriotic words that he would
be fl true 'p to ?-: the '2^ trust X -J. which g sent
himh'fl. If, as '-. Conkling f_ stated, the ~- Re
-1 publicans would have a* majority, how ; had
j it been accomplished ? */ Not ■ by. ; States '. or
i legislatures. The Republicans must have seized
| a Democrat. Who did it? Conkling had
I not," and he did not respect any, one who did.
He asserted again that the Democrats had 33
. votes, and Conkling would not deny, iU^*^
"'■• Conkling, however, did pointedly deny it.
P Hill did not blame a man for changing his
1 opinion, but it was his \ duty *to f iniorra hi?
' a.foeiste-5 oi such change, any no ; wmat
fly ■ flfl. v
had done that. He asked whom Conkiing
relied on for votes .---* ■■-.. -•-- '
- Conkling arose as if to reply, ■ but merely j
went to the desk of the Vice-President, and :
Hill continued,, excitedly; asserting that no
man in this body would be guilty of treachery
to his constituency.*:. He denied the reports
that Harris and Brown would vote with the
Republicans as absurd, and T denied the right :
of the V ice-President to participate in organ- I
izing the Senate, vv^ Whose was that one-rote' '
the- Republicans relied on ? Who . was '
ambitious to do what j no one had ever done
stand up in this high place and proclaim that
he disgraces the commission he holds ? Who
can it be? Did the Republicans receive him
with affection and respect*.: Is he worthy of
association* .. Is he worthy to be a Democrat
or Republican ».-v He reveited to the question
of Federal patronage being used to buy votes
and keep j the Republican party in control,
at- approved the President's message on the
subject of tenure in office. He then returned
forcibly to questioning the Republicans as to
their new recruit, and denouncing him imper
sonally as a traitor, -v
Harris regretted that; Hill had dignified
the newspaper twaddle respecting himself by
noticing the rumor, and denied the story in a
positive way.' Mahone, who occupier! a seat
on the Republican side, advanced to the edge
of the area fronting the Clerk's desk, and
proceeded to reply . to Hill. That gentle
man, he said, had manifestly engaged in an
effort to disclose his (Mahone'e) position on
the floor. .'?&•}- sl£* :''■ -
Hill — do not know what your position is.
How could I disclose it ': V
) Mahone — gentleman has assumed not
only to be the custodian here of the Demo
cratic p*.ity of ', the nation, but has
tried to assert the right to speak
for the : constituency which . I have
the privilege, in part, of - representing
here. -He has done so without their
assent. 5 Addressing;- himself v directly to
Hill and advancing toward him: "I owe
you, sir, and I owe those for whom you un
dertake to speak here, nothing. [Marks of
encouragement on tke Republican side and
in the galleries.] , I came here like a Vir
ginian, not to represent the Democracy for
which you (Hill) stand. I came here with as
proud a claim to represent the people as you
to represent the people of Georgia, won on
fields where I ■ have fought • with yon anil
others in the cause of my people and of that
section in the late unhappy contest. That
contest, thank God, is over, and as one of
those engaged in it, and who has not here or
elsewhere to make an apology for the part he
has taken in it. I say I am not here as a parti
san, nor am I here to represent that Democ
racy which have done so much injury to my
section of the country. The gentleman un
dertook to say what constitutes Democracy.
I hold that I am infinitely a better Democrat
than he. , [Laughter.] He who stands nom
inally committed to a full and fair vote and
an honest ballot j should see that ' they ran be
had in the State of Georgia, where tissue bal
lots are fashionable. [Applause.] I serve a
notice on that gentleman that I intend to be
the custodian of my own Democracy. I do
not intend to be run by that gentleman's
caucus. lam in-every sense a free man here,
and trust to be«ble to protect my own rights
and defend those of the people whom I rep
resent—certainly to take care of my own. I
do not intend again (addressing Hill directly)
that you should undertake to criticise my
conduct by innuendoes, I wish the Senator
from Georgia to understand just here that the
way to deal with me is to deal directly. We
want no "motions of discovery " to find out
how lam going to vote. [Applause on the
floor and in the gallery, which was repri
manded by the Vice-President.] I regret
that so early after my appearance here I
should have found it necessary to obtrude my
remarks on this body. I would prefer to be
a little modest. I would prefer to listen and
learn ; . but I could not feel ' content after
what had passed to day to sit silent. 5 The
gentleman (Hill) by all manner of insinua
tions, direct or indirect, has sought to dis
cover who the Democrat is that may choose
to exercise his right to cast his vote as he
pleases, and to differ with the gentleman's
caucus He seems to have forgotten that I
refused to take part in the caucus, which he
not only waged war upon me but upon
those whom I represent — who lias presumed
to teach the people of Virginia honesty aud.
true Democracy. Yes, sir (addressing Hill),
you were duly notified that I took no part or
lot in your political machinery, and that I
was supremely indifferent to what you did.
[Laughter en the Republican side.] You
were notified that I should stand on this floor
representing in part the State of Virginia.
Certainly the Lesiskture which elected me
did not require ma to state that I was either
a Democrat or anything else. I suppose the
gentleman (Hill) could not get here from
Georgia unless he said" he was a Democrat
anyhow. [Applause and laughter.] I came
here without being j required to state to my
people j . what .*, I rfj am. i i They ; \ were all
willing to trust me. I was elected by
the people, not by the Legislature,
for it was the issue in the (canvass, and no
man was elected to the Legislature by the
party with which I am identified who was
not instructed to vote for me for the Senate.
The gentleman has been chasing all around
this chamber to see if he cannot find a part
ner somewhere. He has been looking around,
occasionally referring to another Senator, to
know exactly who that Senator was who had
the manliness and boldness to assert his
opinion in this chamber, free from the dicta
tion of a Democratic caucus. I want that
gentleman to know that henceforth and for
ever here is a man who dares to stand here
and defend his right against you and your
caucus. [Loud applause and much laughter,
provoked by the violent gesticulations of
Mahone.]
, Hill, who again took the floor, hoped that
no one imagined that he intended making
any personal reply to the remarkable exhibi
tion the Senate had just witnessed. • He had
only asked who was the Democrat that ex
pected to vote with the Republicans. '_ To his
astonishment the Senator from Virginia said
that he was » the man. Would the Senator
(Mahone) say that he was not elected as a
Democrat ? "He said he was not required to
state that be was a Democrat, and in the next
breath he said he was a better Democrat
than himself. Addressing himself to the
Republicans, Hill said : I commend him to
you. Take . good care of him. Nurse him
well. [Laughter.] .■
After an amusing colloquy between Conk
ling, Hill and Logan, Hill said that this was
the first time in history that a Democrat had
shown his Democracy by going over .to -the
Republicans. He referred to the proud his
tory of Virginia and to her great names-
Washington, Jefferson, Madison, Henry and
Lee — none of whom ever accepted a commis
sion from one party and came here to repre
sent another.
Mahone asked if Hill asserted that he
(Mahone) did that and Hill evading the ques
tion persistently, he declared that if Hill in
tended to make that statement of him it was
unwarranted and untrue.
:■: Hill (composedly}— Was not the gentleman
acting with the Democratic party, and was
he not elected to this body as a Democrat ?
(With a fierce tone). Answer that.
Mahone (quickly)— Sir, I was elected as a
Readjustee Do you know what Readjustee
are [Applause and laughter on the Repub
lican tide.]
Hi?!— l understand that there are in Vir- j
ginia "Readjusting* Democrats and "Debt-
Paying" Democrats ; but, as I .understand
it, they are both Democrats.- We have noth
ing to do here with that issue.'" The question
of the Vfrginia - debt is not to be settled in
this chamber. :. I ask the Senator again, was
he not elected to this national body as a mem
ber of the National Democratic party •
Mahone — Are you answered now?
Hill— 1 I § concede that- the Senator
spoke truly ,- when he said I did not know
what he is ' (with; a' puzzled air)
what is he? < [Laughter.] Everybody has
understood that he voted with- the Demo-;
era Did he not support Hancock for the
Presidency, and did ! he' not in the Presiden
tial * election proclaim himself a Democrat ?
[A Democratic Senator— Make him answer.]
Up to this hour it was not known which side
of the chamber or jin I the country how the
gentleman I would I vote. The Senator from .
New York (Conkling) seems _to have infor
mation that somebody who had been elected
as a Democrat would . vote I with the Repub
licans, and I wanted to find out who that
was. vlt seems that I have uncovered him.
[Laughter and applause on . the Democratic
side.], v. i, „ "... "'-. '-:' v .'■'-..' vv ...
•■'■ After more argument in the same style,;
Hill : : congratulated j himself Lin having suc
ceeded .where the press of the ; country had'
failed, and disclosed Mahone's intentions, and
again in the kindest spirit appealed to Maheoe
to be true to the Democracy of Virginia.
I ; Logan drew a parallel > between Hill's flat
tering treatment of tbe Senator from Illinois
(Davis), and his severe handling of the Sena
tor ■ from Virginia, . and said '. the difference
was attributable to the fact that the former,
who never was a Democrat and was not to
day, and who w&» elected from a Republican
State, was voting with the Democrats, while
the latter was not. He defended the tight of
a man to change is political opinion. Hill
himself was ©nee a Whig. ,■ v
v . Hill, being interrogated sharply by Logan,
said he reserved the right to criticise the pub
' lie acts |af I Senators without * dictating .to
them ; their course. He ; w«uld . rather lose
control of the Senate J forever than ste the
soil of Virginia dishonored."-, He did not say
Mahone would do it, but he saw a precipice
yawning before him. Ii he voted as the Re-'
puYilicpjis wanted him to, God help him, for,
he's gone,' and: he, knew the Republicans in
th'jir hearts | felt r ; the same. They despised
treachery, and honored him (Hill) for trying
to save Mahone from the charge of treachery.
fl. Mahone (rising) — I cannot allow the gentle
man to make any such insinuations. ;;'- r; v
Hill — make no! insinuation.* fl'P, Pflfl--^
•'■'■ Mahone---You do, and an unmanly one. Jig
fl\ Hoar expressed his emphatic indignation at
, ■ the degrading exhibition which the Senator
j from Georgia had - made. v " \ was ? the first
1 time in the politics of tb9 country when a
i Senator had undertaken la *a."ance .an act
i to deliver a lecture to his j peer, and ' inform
him if he did a certain thing it would De de
grading and treacherous. V- It was none of the
business of the Senator from Georgia how any
[ other Senator should cast his vote. % No slave
■ aster 'or plantation overseer should crack
! his whip over an American ) Senator. [Ap
plause.] The utterances of the Senator from
Georgia vere an insult to the representatives
of the American people, v That gentleman
had been chosen as a Union man to a State
Convention, and had cast the vote which had
carried Georgia into the rebellion, and from
that day to . this he had learned : nothing
either of constituency or constitutional duty,
or of the propriety of : personal • behavior.
[Applause .on the , Republican side.] .The
gentleman * had undertaken -a ' comparison
between the position. of Davis and' that of
Mahone, with much honied commendation of
the former. The Senator' from Illinois had
been elected by the Legislature of a State
which had an average Republican major
ity of from j 50,000 jto 100,000. . The
Davis Republicans were not in a majority in
i that Legislature.' 7 They were numerically in
j a plurality, and it was the Independents and
Democrats of that body who elected him to
the Senate. The people of Illinois were
. then, and are now, largely Republican. lam
not criticising the Senator from Illinois. I
should deem it unworthy of me to do so. He
has thought it his duty to cast his vote for
the Democratic organfiation of this body,
although, as he informed ns, it was repugnant
to his taste and judgment in many particulars.
Mahone who owes his teat to a State which
cast 84,000 Republican votes and 34,000 In
dependent Democratic or Readjustment votes,
as against 90,000 Bourbon regular Democratic
votes, will vote (if he does so) for tie organ
ization that commends itself to his taste and
his judgment. That is j the | only difference
between the two Senators, aqd is that the
logic of the Senator from Georgia [laughter],
that there are Democrats in the South who
mean to vote down men I with | whom they
differ, but who 'do not mean to assas
sinate them ? There are Democrats in the
South who mean to live in a nation, and
Dot in an aggregate of petty provinces any
longer. . There are Democrats in the South
who do rot mean to live any longer in grave
yards and among tombs, whose face is toward
the morning, and on whose brow the rising
sunlight of the future generations of tbis
country is already beginning to be visible to
such Democrats. The avant courier of this
column has already reached the Senate
chamber after long waiting and yearn
ing. The Republicans, of the North de
sire to. stretch forth a friendly hand, but
the j desire is inspired by no miserable
ambition for office, for political victory, but
by a spirit of patriotism : which loves the
South fully as much as it loves the North.
It is in the spirit of union, not a divided
country ; it is in the spirit of the future, and
not of the past ; it is in the spirit of union,
and not of sectionalism — we are holding cur
hand to the brave and noble Democrats of
Virginia, whose representative took his seat
to-day on this floor.
