Ha imali wbat bad bettor ba c—caalad. Ha ia impulsive, dashing, inconsiderate and, what U (hr worse, ignorant of political matters. With comaaendabla franknees he admits, what the shrewd leaders of his party hare re peatedly denied, that— . “ The Republicans Barer would bare accept ed the Crittenden Compromise, ercu had they foreseen the secession moeement.” Precisely. They were offered a ** fair basis of amicable adjustment,” just and honorable to all parties, but they would not accept it, because it militated against the worthless, sectional, fanatical and in cendiary Chicago Platform, which, to them, was worth “ fifty Union*." They resol red to push matters to extremities— to “yield not an inch” to avert the im pending danger. They insolently and insultingly and haughtily boasted that they “ had the South in their power and would make her drink the cup of degra dation to the dregs.” They wanted no compromise; they would hare all or nothing. Appeals to their patriotism, their love of country and fraternal feeling, were in vain. By accident they had tri umphed and they were determined to make the most of their victory. Greedy adventurers were impatient to be reward ed Cor and Qtmvmi, and r fifb pack of gl'aceiess scoundrels cduW nof'j be put off longer. The voice of reason,, of justice and of patriotism was drowned in the thrilling cry for spoils. Notwith standing the " Crittenden proposition had been indorsed by the almost unanimous vole of the Legislature of Kentucky”; notwithstanding it had been “ indorsed by the Legislature of the noble old Com monwealth of Virginia”; notwithstanding it had been “ petitioned for by a larger number of electors of the United States than any other proposition that was ever before Congressnotwithstanding men everywhere implored Congress to pass it,, yet it was disdainfully rejected by the Abolition Republicans in Congress. Why? Douglas tells us why, snd Fitch inno cently admits tha truth of the statement of Douglas. Hera are Douglas’s words; —let them be remembered : '•The fact can on looser be denied, that many of the Republican Senators desire tear and DIS UNION, under tbepreteztof earing theUoiun. They wish to pat rid of the Southern Senators, in order to bare a majority in the Senate to confirm the appointments; snd many of them think they hold a permanent Republican ascen dancy in the Northern Stales, but oot iu the wholiUxion; for paktisax reasons, therefore, they ana anxiocs to dimolvi thk Union, if it can be done without making them responsible before the people.” “For partisan reasons” they desired and worked for a “dissolution of the Union." They cared nothing for the country ; their whole aim was to preserve their party at the expense of the country! And yet these wretched traitors talk of their love fur their Union. Douglas men, recollect your great leader said the Re publicans, “for partisan reasons, are anx ious to dissolve the Union.” Can you fuse with the disunionists your leader de nounced ? Again, our verdant Republi can friend says, with bewitching simplici ty : •‘The North has always obeyed willingly the decision of the majority, and the South must yield the same obedience.'' The above implies that a majority a! the electors of the United States indorsed Lincoln and his platform. Is it stupidity or something not so excusable that in duces Fitcli to make such a foolishly un founded statement ? What says tha re cord ? Lincoln and the Chicago platform received 1,852,200 votes; his Competitors and opponents of bis platform received, 2,789,174 votes! Majority against him, his party and his platform, 968,974!! Pretty conclusive evidence that the peo ple of tlie United States repudiated him and them by an overwhelming vote. Sub mitting to the will of the majority 1—what nonsense! The majority was against his idol and party and platform, and if he be sincere hi yielding obedience to the will of the majority he must abandon old Abe and hia platform. “ The North has al ways obeyed willingly the decision of the majority!" Has it? Come, Tommy, thiaia “going it a little too strong.” If you know anything about political histo ry—a questionable matter, we admit—you must know that tha Fugitive Slave Law was passed by a large majority in Con gress ; that an overwhelming majority of the people of the United States approved the Act, and that a large majority of the Northern States ignored, repudiated and nullified the Act, by passing “ Personal Liberty Bills.” In the face of this well known fact, which every school boy knows, you have tlie audacity to assert that “ the North haa always obeyed will ingly the decision of the majority”! ! History and facts are against you, Tom, and excuse ue for placing more confidence in them than in your absurd statement. Your Republican readers may swallow such marvellous stories, but you cannot impose upon intelligent men. ScrroHTKH or Lincoln's Policy.— The Marysville Appeal, the official organ of the Republican party and edited by the State Printer, speaking of the letter of Conness, says: “Thin is a nianlr letter, and places Mr. Con ness in ths position of an UNEQUIVOCAL SUPPORTER OP LINCOLN'S POLICY.” It is a proud “ position.” A man can not be a Democrat and “ an unequivocal supporter of’ Abolition measures. An “ unequirosal supporter of Lincoln’s pol icy” means one who approves all the measures and acts of the Administration, including the appointment of such men as Helper, Burlingame, Giddings, Clay, Corwin and other rabid Abolitionists, the abolishing of slavery in the District of Columbia, the arrest of innocent parties without due process of law, the violation of Constitutional stipulations, retaining in office convicted thieves, etc. As Conness ia an “ unequivocal supporter of Lincoln's policy," he cannot consistently or honest ly claim to be a Democrat, nor oppose the Republican party. If he be, as his friends assert, a bold and honest politician, he will ntfionger hesitate to take the “ posi tion” assigned him by the Appeal. Caustic.— Saya tbe Folsom Telegraph : “The editors of the San Juan Free* and Sierra Newt bad better ' go to bed' than occupy tbeir time in writing denuncia tions of Hardy'a dissipated habits. Re member the axiom of glass houses and stones, gentlemen.” A «W|k OM” lialAM. John Con ness— John the unassuming —John the unaspiring—John the irre paedkible—has written a letter, a bully letter, defining his position and disclosing his grievances and imploring old Abe’s sympathy and assistance. John, in his own estimation, is a “ huge potato,” “ a representative roan,” a leader, a dictator, a prodigy. He speaks like an autocrat and acts like a sycophant. We are sorry to say this, but John's letter justifies us in doing so. John speaks, or thinks he does, not only for himself “ individually and collective ly,” but for the great and unconquerable ** Union Democracy ;” and imagines that when he issues an order it will be impli citly obeyed by the party with which he has heretofore acted. John, in the full ness of his heart and grandeur of his pa triotism and magnitude of his unselfish ness, glorifies the illustrious “ patriot who stands at the head of the Government," unmindful of the fact that the said '* pa triot” has ever been the relentless enemy of the Democratic party and the traducer of its champions. John, without any qualification or reservation, goes the “ en tire swine” for old Abe. This is generous If It isn’t sincere. John says, with be witching naivety, that if “ there are efforts biewg made in this State to unite ‘the two wines of the Democratic party in one Mhnonious brotrterhoou, ydil db me hut justice in exonerating me from any part in the undertaking." John doesn't want the Democratic party united in “one har monious brotherhood." Such a movement would defeat John’s Republican friends, and seriously interfere with bis own ar rangements. For years he has zealously and incessantly worked to distract and defeat the Democratic party, and be is too much of a Republican to wish to see them successful. Besides, at the time his letter was written he was engaged in the pleas ing (to him) work of uniting the Union Democrats and Black Republicans of San Francisco “ in one harmonious brother hood.” He succeeded but the combination didn't John's disinterested work wag not appreciated by the ungrateful and stolid sovereigns of San Francisco. He and his fusion “ went up the spout.” John says, with Christian resignation, that “ he would not be the recipient of power or office of a combination” of Dem ocrats. It was unnecessary for John to make such a declaration. He knew well that he could not be. Democrats some times bestow favors upon unworthy recip ients, but not after they prove recreant to the faith, as John has done in innumera ble instances. John is magnanimous. Personally, he says, he has “ no hostility to the men who vot d for John R. McConnell, or who sup ported General Breckinridge.” Permit us to remark, John, in all kindness, that it is a matter of profound indifference to them whether you like or dislike them. “Alike to them your friendship or your hate.”— Personally they may think you a “ good sort of a fellow;" politically, a mendicant and sycophant. They are uncharitable fellows, John, and carried their hostility so far as to rejoice “ over your temporary discomfiture” last fall. Some of them, John, go so far as to say they will pursue you until you “ rotire in good order" to the “ last ditch." , John has not yet found his “ proper place,” and says he will not find it until the “ Federal authority is acknowledged, and the mandates of the Courts are obey ed." When this occurs, then he will take an unmistakable posish. As the “ man dates of the Courts” are daily disregarded by “ the patriot who stands at the head of the Government,” and as John most cor dially and enthusiastically sustains him, it is doubtful if he will find his “ proper place” until “ the patriot" retires from of fice. On this point John is slightly mys tical. He is not bold nor cunning, but simply silly. John “has been willing and desirous that the true, loyal and patriotic people of California should constitute one party” for his especial benefit, but when he found “ the true, loyal and patriotic people of California" contemptuously declined to indorse him, he patriotically kicked against the “ one party” movement, XL wasn't quite patriotic enough for him. His patriotism run in a different direction. John modestly rebukes his Republican allies for “ confining their efforts to adroit movements to add to their party numbers and their partisan strength." John wouldn't do anything of the kind I He is too patriotic. Ungenerous in the Re publicans to nfp John and compel him to TitlXcr pstriol who stands' at ine head of the Government” In conclusion, John spitefully and mournfully and feelingly alludes to the fact that the National and State Adminis trations have proscribed him and his friends. The conclusion is irresistible, that if they had not done so he and his friends would have warmly supported both. It was stated, some months ago, that “ the patriot who stands at the head of the government" had some notion of appointing John a Brigadier General, and would have appointed him had not the Re publicans of California protested against it This may explain John's adulation of “ the patriot” and rebuke of the parties who defeated him. John evidently has still an eye on the Brigadier Generalship, and hopes by flattery of “ the patriot” to se cure it, in spite of the protestations of sensible men. John is trying an impossibility. John slobbered the Republican party prepara tory to swallowing them. The dose is too hefty for him ; it sticks in his throat and threatens to strangle him. It can only be removed by the skillful hands of “ the patriot.” Will he come to the rescue of his fawning idolator? Your case is hope less, John, without his assistance. Be seech him again to give you relief. GENUisr.—The following speech re ported by the Louisville Democrat, bears the impress of being genuine nigger, and no invention. Is it not pointed and sting ing, and worth a column of argument? Says the liberated contraband : “ Bress de L>.rd, hallelujer, dat dis ole nigger should Nb to see die ere happy time, when ‘ white men must hab a pass to move about, and nigger go whar him please wid out one. Brese de Lord!" AMIUm PfMllTlUM M lk« Pm** 4«rt< Abolishing slavery in the District of Columbia was purely an Abolition meas ure ; they had petitioned for it for years; the bill was passed by their vote*; the President approved it; still his followers declare he is not an Abolitionist The Abolitionists desire the emancipation of the negroes of the South ; the President recommended to Congress to pass such a bill, yet he is not an Abolitionist. The Abolitionist disregarded the fugitive slave law ; the President has forbidden officers of the army and navy returning fugitive slaves to their masters, thus virtually ig noring the fugitive slave law, yet he is not an Abolitionist The Abolitionists say they desire “ no Union with slave holders the President says, “ I believe this Government cannot endure perma nently half slave and half free." The Abolitionists say, “ the meaning of this war is the doom of slaverythe Presi dent says, “ if the Abolition of slavery be an efficient means of ending this war, if I find cannon unsuccessful, I shall try efficient means.” In what does the Pres ident differ from the most rampant Abo litionist? Again, Wendell Phillips, who boasted lately in Washington, Cincinnati and Chicago that “/or nineteen years he had been a disunionist,” stated in a speech , delivered in Boston the 17/b April, , , an Ms return frame a-visit to the President, that— “ The President said to a leading Republi can politician of New York, • Why don't yon hold conventions often, and let me feel the mind of the nation? You cannot create at much ANTI-SLAVERY feeling a* tee ekallneed hefore tee get through thie war'.’’ Here the President is represented, by .one of his cherished friends and admirers, who would not knowingly misrepresent him, as urging a “ leading Republican politician of New York to create an anti slavery feeling." For what purpose does he want an “ anti-slavery feeling created" ? Phillips answers, and the answer was re ceived witli cheers, “ that this war shall not end until slavery is swept from the continent.” Is this not explicit ? What more does the most violent, the most fa natical Abolitionist ask ? And this man, who is so solicitous to “ create an anti slavery feeling," John Conness, the leader of the “ Union Democrats” of California, calls a “ patriot." Does John expect an appointment from the “ patriot” for his fulsome adulation ? It looks like it. The Republican says John was snubbed by his party friends in the Legislature, and this may account for his “ paying court" to the “patriot” at Washington. We hope such delicate'sycophancy will not go unrewarded! The Gov. Sprague Pamphlet Impost ure.— It will be recollected that the Sacra mento Union, Marysville Appeal, Shasta Courier and other Abolition sheets, pub lished extracts from a pamphlet, of a vile Abolition character, which they ascribed to Gov. Spingue, the patriotic Democratic Governor of Rhode Island. We thought at the time it was a forgery; now we have the proof of it Will those papers that published retract the slander ? The Albany Argue, on the authority of Gov- Sprague, thus; disposes of it: “ It appears that some copies of the pam phlet, an abolition essay, were sent lo Gov. S. Afler reading enough of the thing to ascertain its chsrscter, he banded the copies in his pos session (the Legidature then being in session) to certain Republican members of Ibe Senate, with the remark that the pamphlet might prove interesting to them, but that he had no taste for that kind of reading. He heard no more of it until it appeared in a Republican paper, un der the caption, “ Governor Spragues Pam phlet.” A brief introduction to the pamphlet held forth the idea that it was written kg Our. Sprague, with the addition that he waa circula ting it amongst his friends. Explaining his part in the deception, the ed itor of the village journal which first published it with this ascription, aavs that this caption “ was furnished only on the eve of going to press, at a lime wheo its due consideration waa impossible; and under no consideration would we have admitted it bad we understood its full import.” The affair was a premeditated contrivance to commit Governor Sprague to the abolition cause, snd to gire In that conspiracy against the Conttitutinn the authority or his name.” Ungenerous.— Conness, at the close of his letter, snappishly and bitterly alludes to the fact that the National and State Administrations have proscribed him and his friend*. To this the Marysville Ap peal ungenerously and cruelly retorts: “ The Republicans in the Legislature elected Wm. H. Parks, a Democrat, as Swamp Laud Commissioner to Washington.” The sting and cruelty of the above will he appreciated when properly understood. It is stated that Gov. Stanford promised to appoint Conness a Commissioner. He solicited it and thought he had a “ dead thing” on it. A bill was introduced in the House, for his benefit and supported by his friends, authorizing and empower ing the Governor to appoint two Com i missioners ; and on* w»a. loo-subnetd in the Senate for the appointment of one by the Legislature—three Commissioners in all. The Senate bill, with the name of Mr. Parks in it, passed both Houses speedily; the House bill was rejected by the Senate, which left Conness “ out in the cold.” How unfeeling in the Appeal to call the attention of Conness to these painful reminiscences ! The Democratic Victory in Chicago.— The official vote for Mayor of Chicago, at the late municipal election, is for Sher man, Democrat, 7,509 ; Holden, Republi can, 6,186; Democratic majority, 1,823. In 1861, it stood thus; Republican, 8,274; Democratic, 6,601; Republican majority, 1,678. Democratic gain, 2,996, and this in the great Republican stronghold of the Northwest! What better evidence could be offered of the decline of Republican ism and the advancing strides of the Dem ocratic party. To catch the unsuspecting the Republicans called their ticket the “ Union ticket," and induced some fishy Democrats to run on it It was an artful dodge, but it did not succeed. Men are no longer deceived and misled by the hypocritical professions of Republican Unionists. Tbe masses know that the Democratic party is the true Union party, and that as soon as it is restored to power the Union will be reconstructed on an equitable and permanent basis. Wade, the fellow who replied to Mc- Dnugall and defended the rascality of Cameron, was recently denounced on the floor of Congress as “ a liar, a scoundrel and a coward.” This associate and apol ogist of villains the Sacramento Union puffs. It may be that the old saying is tme—“ A fellow feeling makes us wop drous kind.” Vutmm «f Parti** la *»w Ttrt. Under this caption, the Sacramento Bee, a rile Abolition cheat, baa an insidi oua article, calculated and intended to deceive and mislead ita readers. I says: ' “ A large number of tbe member* of tbe Near York Legislature, who heretofore were associ ated with tbe Republican party or with tbe Democratic party, hare agreed to cast party aside for the present and combine in one great Union organization for tbe aakeof the Union— to prosecute tbe war and support tbe Presi dent.” Now, what are the facts* The mem bers of the Legislature, who were elected on the fusion ticket last fall, objected to the name of “ Republican" and refused to unite with the Republicans unless they renounced their principles and abandoned their organization. They had been Dem ocrats, but last fall they joined the Re publieant and run in oppoeition to the regular nominee « of the Democratic par ty. Not a tingle Democrat, elected at ruch, countenanced the new " Union or ganization." The new organization is made up exclusively of apostate Demo crats and Republicans-of Democrats of the Dickinson, and Republicans of the Greeley school. They met in caucus and decided to ignore, expunge and discard the Re publican (forty and its orgatnUliou and set up a new one in its place, for the ben efit of that prince of trimmers, Dickinson? The movement met with a determined and violent opposition from the friends of trot they ct/8Wf nui saveuieir party from destruction. It is a corrupt and rotten and loathsome institution, and men are ashamed of its name, its leaders, j its acts, its measures and its doctrines. I Everywhere the people are repudiating it with scorn. The caucus of the renegades and cor ruptionists decided upon a political or ganization separate and distinct from all existing parties, and appointed a State Committee to carry their purpose into effect. This is the end of the infamous Republican party in the great State of New York, where, but two years ago, it was proud, powerful and overbearing. It * has been weighed in the balance and found wanting. The new organization, under a different and more attractive and popular name, indorses its most odious doctrines. Seward and Weed have been deposed — Dickinson and Greeley exalted. It is a combination of all that is execrable in politics and detestable in morals—a com bination without character, principle or influence. A similar combination the Bee ; wants to form in this State, and appeals j to Democrats to unite with it! It says Conness is in favor of it, and thinks his j favoring it is a conclusive argument. It may be with wavering politicians, but not j with true-hearted Democrats. It was time for the Republicans to abandon their organization. In the words of the Albany Argut, “ it was organized less than eight years ago, and its first act was to nominate Fremont. Its failure in 1856 was less fatal to it than its success in 1860. Mr. Ltncoln's election : his un fortunate Cabinet selections: the setting up of the Chicago platform above the Constitution, and the su' sequent wreck of that Juggernaut in the collisions of the civil war : the waste and fraud and folly of many acts of administration : the tri fling with civil liberty, and the tendency of the Government to anarchy, present a career which, for the sake of the best in terests of humanity, should have termina ted before now. The Divine mandate against self-murder does not extend to such an act; but it will be rather record ed, hereafter, to its credit, that when it awoke to the consciousness of its actions, it perished by its own hand. No device of a * Union party’ will serve, which does not array the elements it proposes to gather against the anarchical tendency of events at Washington. We can compre hend the magnitude of the influence which a party, rallying in defence of the belea guered Constitution, might exert at this time. It might enlist the hearts and heads of the patriotic masses to a work above the work of party. But a 1 Union party,’ which throws its weight to give new impetus to the revolution now threat ening to engulf all the distinctive princi ples of American liberty, will deserve to be regarded as a giant conspiracy, against which all good men should combine. We wait for time to develop which of these characters ‘the new party’will assume. Meanwhile we congratulate the world that the Republican party has gone out of it." Suppose Breckinridge bad been elected Pres ident, and Senator Seward bad offered a ’‘com promise," to the effect that the Breekinridgers should abandon their platform, adopt tbe Wil mot Proviso, and put it io the Constitution, or else the North would secede, what a bowl of derision would have ypne 119 ail over tbe land. —Republican. What insufferable stufft The Breck inridge party asked for nothing but what was clearly right—for nothing that had not been advocated and sanctioned by the wisest statesmen and purest patriots of our country—nothing that the Constitu tion did not warrant—nothing that was inconsistent with or in violation of it— nothing that interfered with or ignored the rights, the interests or tbe privileges of any section of the Union. The Repub lican party did. They solemnly declared war—implacable and relentless—against the institutions of fifteen States of the Union. They laughed, in bitter mocke ry, at the doctrine of State’s equality, and insisted that Southern property should be excluded from the common territory. Northern property admitted. Against this unjust and sectional doctrine “ the Breekinridgers" contended and rightly. Had their platform, so broad, comprehen sive and equitable, been adopted we would not now be engaged in an unnatu ral and disastrous war. Unfortunately sectionalism and fanaticism triumphed, harmotfy was destroyed, and the conse quences all good men see and deplore. Black Mail.— One S. W. Morton, a Government agent in New York, has been arrested and is in prison on the charge of extorting money from persons falsely ac cused of disloyalty, upon threats of send- to F%rt Warren if they refused to pay the sums demanded I The Albany Argut says he is not the only person against whom this charge has been made. When the full evidence in these matters is unfolded, we will learn why innocent men were fixed upon by the Government agents, and at what price they escaped. Will Old Abe come to the rescue of Mor ton, and assume the responsibility of |*ia ftgent, as be did in the case of Camerqn f Cn»H> LaMar. The following letter from John Conners to • gentleman in Shasta county, is pub lished “by authority” in the Shasta Conn er, of the 24th instant: San Francisco, May 11, 1862. Mr Dear Sir : Your faror of April 28, addressed to me at Georgetown, has just come to hand, I am much obliged for the motive that prompted it, as well as lor the information it contains. If, as you say, there are efforts being made in this State to unite “ the two wings of the Democratic party in one harmoni ous brotherhood,” you do me but justice in eionerating me from any part in the undertaking. Such a proceeding can have neither aid nor comfort from any act of mine. 1 would not be the recipient of power or office which was the result of such a combination, carrying with it, as it necessarily must, the implied or ex pressed obligations of being the represent ative of such men and opinions. Personally, I have no hostility to the men who voted for John R. McConnell, or who supported General Breckinridge for the Presidency, and have no objection to political association with such of them as were misled, and are now, without condi tion, true to the Union ; but no conside ration whatever can unite me to the men who hold the doctrine of the right of se cession, justified the firing on Sumter, rejoiced over the temporary discomfiture of our army at Bull Run, or who now would in any manner, or under any pre tence whatever, restrict the power or render impotent the efforts of the patriot who atrrviu at -uawtivf w bu . aa cllWtg'C'l WUI lUl COTI* duct and preservation. Upon this I have no compromise to make, no conciliation to offer, no generalities or platitudes to deal in, until the last rebel shall retire from, or die in “the last ditch.” When the Federal authority is acknowledged, and the mandates of the Courts are obey ed, then, as every good citizen must be, I shall be in favor of peace, and that is the price that must be paid for it. When this result is attained, questions of the greatest magnitude and importance must be settled, and our people will divide into parties upon them according to section, interest, circumstance and opinion. We will then all find our proper places, be cause the questions to be determined will have distinctive character. The letter of mine to which you*teier, addressed to Geo. C. Gorham, E-q., last fall, contains a true reflex of my feelings to-day. I have been willing and desirous that the true, loyal and patriotic people of California should, until this war was ended, constitute one party for the great purpose of maintaining the Government; aod I have done no act inconsistent with such an end. It belonged to the parly in power to have promoted and secured so desirable an object; but I regret to say that the efforts of their leaders have been confined to adroit movements, to add to their party numbers and their partisan strength. „ The party that l had the honor of being the nominee of, last fal 1 , for the Executive office, has always been true and loyal to the Government' though proscribed here front any share in the patronage of the Federal or State administrations ; and so long as it remains true and loyal, and par ties are kept organized as at present, I will remain one of its number. Truly, vour friend, JOHN CONN ESS. Abolition Insolence. —The Providence Port, the organ of the patriotic Governor Sprague, well says that front the speech of Senator Wade in reply to Senator Me Dougal, relative to the case of Gelt. Stone, “ we get some idea of the extent to which insolence can be carried by Abolitionists in our National Legislature, w ithout pro voking a breach of the laws." Again, the Pott says: “The declaration by Wade that the than w ho quotes the Constitution ! ‘in this great crisis,’ is a traitor, is worthy I of this Abolition leader in the Senate, and shows to what lengths the party now con | trolling that body would carry their as saults upon the rights of the people, if they dared to go further than they have already gone in thrusting loyal men into Bastiles. The time is fast coming when the people will get their ‘ huge paws’ upon these fattened and pompous higher law vaunters, and then look out for a full set tlemcntof old accounts! Insolence, profli gacy, corruption and tyranny are having their day now,-the people will right mat ters ere long.” Bold talk for a Northern paper, published in the heart of Abolition ism! What Union Democratic paper in California dare be as fearless and as hon est as the Pott t Pavino roit the Nic.oek. —Our people are paying dearly for the glorious privi lege of negro worship which they have so fully enjoyed for the last dozen years, says the New Hampshire Patriot. The war itself, which is ruining the country and impoverishing the whole people, is its chief fruit. But among the interesting incidentals is the direct purchase and sup port of negroes. To free the slaves in the District of Columbia 81,100,000 is to be paid ; and it is estimated that the Gov ernment is now paying at the rate of twenty thousand dollars a day for the sup port of negroes who have been enticed from their roasters, or liberated by other unlawful means, and this trim mutt grow larger daily ! All this the people have got to pay, and the most of it comes from the hard earnings of the laboring classes, and for the benefit of worthless vagabonds who will compete with them for work.— Willing as most of them are to pay the legitimate expenses of suppressing the rebellion, we think this negro tax may be reasonably objected to; and when the tax gatherer demands the National tax in which this will be included, not a few will conclude that negro worship has become too expensive. Well Said.— The New York Tribune calls this “ the era of Bastiles and muzzled presses." Who made it so f The Tribunt't party. For Mayor.— If Geonon T.
