IMPROVED GOVhRNHERNT.
We are ever the advocates of peace and fra
ternity. Next to entertaining the most kindly
feelings, ourself, towards all mankind, it is our
desire to promote harmony amongst others.
It is with tlhs view that we feel compelled to
remonstie kindly with:several:of our contem
poredes on the severity of some of their criti
elsms on certain of our new military rulers.
We do not set ourself up as the special cham
pion of the magnates, for, like woman, they
can "speak for themselves," and they take
frequent occasion to show most
" Prosperous art
When they will play with reason and discourse."
Besides, we have not been called upon as their
advocate, for the reason, perhaps, that even
without any particular commendations from
us, their' desert speaksloud." Notwithstand
ing this fact, however, we cannot withhold our
expressions of admiration when in the pre
sence of such transcendent merit.
"We should wrong it,
To look it i the wards of covert bosom,
When It deserves with characters of brass
A forted residence. 'gainst the tooth of timen
And razure of ohlivion."
We therefore deprecate the action of some
of our contemporaries of the press, and would
ask them to reconsider the grounds on which
they base their too severe animadversions on
some of our most distinguished rulers. It is,
perhaps, not altogether unnatural that the
press should give utterance to such senti
ments as they have occasionally expressed;
for the press is to some extent the reflex of
public sentiment, and would therefore be
likely to partake of the errors of the distinct,
communities whose views they are understood
to promulgate. Our people, like those of
every other country, are to some extent the
creatures of education, and adhere with some
tenacity to the principles of the school in
which they have been taught. We have no
doubt that intelligent strangers who come
amongst us may regard us as most obstinate
in our prejudices; and their patience must
often be tried'at our inaptness to be readily
converted to views which seem to us novel,
and opposed to all our preconceived notiohs
of what is right and proper. We can form
some conception of their impatience with us
when we conceive, for a moment, what would
be our own impressions of disgust if, on visit
ing more barbarous regions than ourgwn, we
should find the wild natives of New Zealand
tenacious of indulging in those " harmless
pleasantries" of eating grasshoppers and
broiled babies, in spite of our enlightened
remon.trances.
Notices shocking to the sensibilities of a
modern New Englander must be the rude
notions of government still entertained by
the people of the South. Educated in the an
tiquatedsehoolof Washington, Patrick Henry,
Rutledge Tefferson, Madison, John Marshall,
Calhoun, Randolph, Clay, and other forgotten
statesmen, the Southern people still adhere
to thoaeastrngeprepossessions for republican
institutions, and to that unaccountable regard
for the obsolete Constitution which must ever
remain a blot upon the memory of those other
wise eputable men. Imagining that because
the government which these so-called states
men established was sucoessful, and confer
red an unprgoedented amount of happiness
omits eitizens as long as the principles on
which it was founded were followed out, our
peopleltrvp fllen into the grievous error of
supposingihat the eccentri'views which were
entertained by those singular men were based
upon a sound and judicious 'public policy
and that a return to those neglected princi
ples, as now advocated by President Johnson,
would be to restore harmony and prosperity
to the country I
In reaching this erroneous conclusion, our
people have lost sight of the important fact
of the immense strides of improvement in
the astof governing the world. Steamboats,
railroads and telegraphs have been in
vented. Of these useful appliances of
government, such men as Washington
and 'Jefferson and Adams were ignorant.
With what contempt, therefore, must their
principles ,bet viewed, by such statesmen as
Banks and Butler and Conway, who have
ridden on steamboats and railroad cars, and
hpve actually heard the mysterious ticking of
the telegraph instrument; , and may even
have beheld the great organ in Boston! We
think therefore that our contemporaries, in
stead of encouraging our people in their
strange prejudices in favor of constitutional
laa, should endeavor to teach them' a be
coming reverence for those literati from the
enlightened North who, have acquired rail
$sed aiidlightning views of government, who
come.amongst our people with the beneficent
object of converting them to the newly
invstall d and improved policyof martial IAs,

These perhaps might be regarded by some
persons as amongst the inconveniences of the
pure military rule. It possibly might be the
occasion of a little annoyance to the subject
of martial law; but as it would not cause the

rieft'll aid us in correcting. It is alleged
thatin ininy men who have obtaiied rapid
advanabmenteand become newly possessed of
a vast power which no previous experience or
evpui study of stato craft has properly qual
itfi tl.e~ 'to wield with wisdom, are apt to
play ettiafstahtastic trickct whigs may prove
excedingly unpleasant to the subject. But
when we come to consider how natural is the
feeling to wear honors "in theirnewest gloss"
and to display a new uniform or a
freshly acquired authority to an admiring
world, this disposition on the part of the
martial ruler should be regarded by the public
as an evidence of a commendable ambition.
And besides, the people should consider that
there is sometimes a natural awkwardness in
some persons when suddenly transferred to a
new field where duties of a novel character
are unexpectedly thrust upon them :
" New honors come upon them
Like our strange garments-cleave not to their
mould
h But with the aid of use."
n But when familiarized with the strange gar
s ments, it sometimes happens that, even
I though they may not be an apt fit, the gar
ar ments are worn with some grace. We remem
es ber very distinctly the emotions of pride
which agitated our young heart on coming
into undisputed possession of our first " set " of
marbles. We have no doubt, now, in our ma
turer years, that the unreasonable joy we
manifested on the momentous occasion must
a have excited more than one smile amongst
d those who witnessed the manifestations of
h our youthful delight. We were not less
n pleased when we afterwards fell heir to our
first drum, and the artificial thunder which
.0 we made on the occasion, while very gratify
ing to us, was perhaps not so agreeable to
others. In like manner our frequent demon
strations with Chinese fire crackers, while
perhaps exciting unreasonable annoyance and
, apprehension in others, ocgasioned us the
d most hilarious enjoyment. These were but
, the natural ebullitions of our juvenile feel
Sings, and we would have thought it an evi
dence of the most intolerant spirit if our dis
n position to please ourself and to annoy others
o had been received with any special show of
b impatience. But we have foundthat the mass
of mankind are usually very tolerant of these
eccentricities of youthful genius-and we
think a like commendable spirit should actu
ate the press in their criticisms on our modern
governors, when first playing with their newly
acquired toys. And with what joyous feelings
we remember the time when, just emerging
from youth into early manhood, we were first
permitted to bestride a steed of our own!
With what pride we taught him the manege!
How delighted were we when he:learned to obey
the rein! What pleasure did it give us to see
him champ the bit, and alternately to obey
the spur and the curb, as best suited our
varying will!
In like manner our people should be taught
to look patiently and approvingly upon those
who have but newly come to power, and to
consider that it is very natural and very praise
worthy in the young and the unskilled to
attempt to attain, by experience, that perfec
tion in the art of government which, unlike
Dogberry's reading and writing, does not
"come by nature." Though it may at first
seem to be a little hard on the subjects of the
experiment, it will soon become a second
nature if they only learn
" That the body public is
A horse whereon the governor doth ride,
Who, newly in the seas, that he may know
He can command, lets it straight feel the spur."
The public should even be taught to mani
fast a proper sense of gratitude for -being
selected as the steed, whose patient sufferings
may be made the means of teaching their
youthful riders a degree of perfection in the
art of government which must, in the end,
reflect credit upon the powers of endurance
and the docility of the belabored and jaded
steed.
But even if the souls of the luckless sub
jects of this experimental polity should weary
with the constant repetition of the severe
trials upon human endurance, the tortured
public should be taught to believe that these
playful equestrians are but missionaries in
disguise, sent amongst us by a philanthropic t
people to wean us from the illusive dreams of b
earthly happiness and induce a willingness o
to risk the tortures of the nether world t'
rather than be led a willing captive to the
soft allurements which might induce us to
cling too tenaciously to the blandishments of
earth. In this view of the case the public fl
mind should be led to contemplate martial P
law as "a toad" which, though "ugly and F
venomous, wears yet a precious jewel in his g
head," the sight of which may insensibly '
lead our minds to the contemplation of the ti
hopes and the splendors of another, and, it 9
may be, of a better world, " where the I1
wicked cease from troubling and the weary
are at rest."
General A. S. Lee, who is stated to be a
general in the United States army, and to
have been present at the scene of the riot in
this city on the 30th ultimo, recently made a
speech in Leavenworth, Kansas, a report of
which we find in a Western exchange. He
states thttthis .-ooms were within a square of
the Mechanics' Institute, and that from his
balcony he saw "very much" of the affair.
After looking on till his feelings were over
wr6doii,tGeneral Lee says:
At length I left my house and rode to the head
qgarters of the departmeht. I found General
Baird in his office,surrounded by his staff. I said :
"General Baird, can it be possible that you are
ignorant of what is occurring in the city ?" He
said:, ' What. General, is there a serious difficulty
in town?" I told him I should think there was.
I said: "' I came here as an ex-officer of the fed
eral army, as a citizen of a Northern State, to
protest against the shedding of so much innocent
ilood. It is a. shame upon our military authori
ties."
He said, "Why, general, what particular things
have occurred! ' I tied to tell him. I told lalu
,o many men had been shot ; that Governor Halhn
hadil been shlot ; til t Mr, FihaI bad been arrested;
that Dr. Dostie had been killed. He said, "Are
you sure that is so--I get so many conflicting ac
tounts." I told him it was no, and stated that if
I had been is ctmmaud ot the city, I would hiave
taken a hbtt-ryof artillery and swe't ttie streets
of the rufiaoly cowards. He said, "Why, general
if Ihad done that I should have killed as many of
your party as'theirs."', I told hinm I halind noporty.
Said hie. "I mean the negroes " (Laughter.)
Said I, "General Baird, if tvls go on Canal street,
you will not aer lyer four ncegroes, and they will
be pursued by citizens and pol ce, and two at least
will be killed bef,re they cans escape." I said,
"ECiliteen millionsa of men are watching you this
day, and thisa delay will cort ytu dearly." He
said, 'I have uade no delay; I have ordered men
there ;" and turnrg to some of his staff, gave
some hurlaed orders.
1 went back to my home, and in about half an
honur a batt-.ry of artillery and a regiment of in
ftanry paraded on the street. At thal time ne
grnes wore being pursued by a crowd of mlen.
and one was killed within sight of the guidons tf a
United States cavalry company, but not a ohot
was fired by a United States soldier. The rioters
diplersed, martial law was proclaimed, the ear.
nivalof slaughter was over for the day. I believe
that at that time about twenty-five loyal whites
and one hundred loyal blatks lay dead, whle ive
hundred of both colors lay wounded, the result of
one day's' work.
so, here we find the cat has been let out of
the bag! Gen. Baird's hesitation and delay
Were caused by his fear of slaughtering the
riotous blacks,. who, he supposed, were more
nomernea at-the scene of conflict than the
'white trash." 'And from Le's statement, it
should be toaken for granted 'that Haird' rec
luctanee nvnwed--upoI Lee's asenranco that
only four negroe:;r were visible on Canal staret.
On the 23d the weatiher at Kansas City was
alaiett cool enough for frost,
it THE PRESIDENT AND HIS ENEMIES.
e We do not suppose that the history of the
country, from the foundation of the govern
ment, furnishes an instance of a fiercer politi
cal fight than has been going on for the last
nine months between the President of the
tUnited States on the one side, and the radi
cals of the country, in and out of Congress, on
the other. Those who suppose that it is Con
gross alone with which the President has to
contend, commit a serious error. The whole
radical press of the country attacks him with
a vigor and virulence. altogether unparalleled.
The very office holders, who hold their posi
tions by virtue of his favor, are among the
noisiest of the pack who are hounding him
down. The turbulent passions of the masses,
a excited to such a phrenzy' by the war, have
not yet cooled down ; and we here in the
South, who know no divisions of parties, can
form but a feeble idea of that rancor of feel
ing-that intense hostility which is not politi
cal merely, but has become personal-which
so large a portion of the Northern people feel
towards the constitutional chief magistrate of
the country. The mythological battles of the
giants, who are reported to have plucked up
mountains by the roots' and flung them at
each others' heads, may give some idea of the
intensity of the rage of the radicals ; and the
a vigor with which their assaults are repelled
by the President shows that the gage of bat
tie has been fully accepted, and henceforth it
is to be a war a l'olrcsdr e.
We confess that we are glad to see this.
WI e world not have it otherwise. The issue
is now to be tried whether this is a constitu
t tional government or not--and this question
depIruds upon who is the victor in the pend
ing fight bel tween the President and the radi
cals. The isoner we know how it is to Le,
the better. The sooner we discover wlhether
the spirit of libserty exists sufficiently, or not,
among th' peoplle of this country to preserve j
our l:and from ruin, and vindicate the supe
riority of republican institutions, the better
it will be not for ourselves only but for o ir
scshildren and our children's children to the
remotest generation. s
And one of the most peculiar features ofi
the quarrel is the fact that the hostility of the
radicals to the President is caused as much
by the certainty that he is not a supple and I
pliant instrument in their hands, for party
purposes, as by the knowledge that he can- t
not be made a party to their revolutionary
political schemes. They supposed they
were conferring an immense favor upon
Andrew Johnson by putting him upon their
Presidential ticket. They supposed they
were - signalizing their theory that a
State could not secede from the Union, by
selecting for Vice President a citizen of a
State which was one of the Confederacy. t
They thought that, in the possible contin
gency of his accession to the Presidency, he
would be a mere automaton, and move only
at the dictation of Sumner and his radical
allies. Much of their rage proceeds from the
fact, discovered immediately after Andrew
Johnson's inauguration, that he is not the
pliable and easily-managed instrument they
took him to be, but that he is President in
fact as well as in name. It may be set down I
as a general rule, indeed, that any man who
has positive qualities of statesmanship suffi
cient to secure an election to either the first
or the second office in the gift of the people,
has also the courage to take broader views of b
the situation, from the Presidential chair, a
than any mere district or State representative,
and is capable of rising superior to the narrow
political prejudices of such visionary and de
mented people as Mr. Sumner, or such avowed e
highway robbers in politics as Mr. Thaddeus S
Stevens.
If Mr. Johnson had consented to be Presi
dent merely in name, permitting IMr. Sumner
to be President in fiaet-had he left the dis
tribution of his patronage to the radical mem
bees of Congress instead of taking it into his
own hands-Lad he servilely followed the die
tation. and regi'tered the behests of those
who expected to moakt him their tool, perhaps
we should have been spared the spectacle
which is now exhibited of a Congress emlking
ferious war upon a President elected by the
party. noainly, which now makes warupon him.
Perhaps radical malevolence would not have
gone to the extreme it has now reached,of seek
ing to destroy the last vestiges of the Constitu
tion, and dooming to perpetual political and
personal abasement the entire people of the
late Confederate States. Perhaps there is in
the conduct of the radicals, something of that
pique and resentment which often hurries
men and parties into excesses from which, in
the absence of such provoeatives, they would
have recoiled. We know not, but we hope so
-for it is hard to believe that a party, without
any motive whatever, or any motive less
strong than the control of a government with
five hundred millions a year of disbursements,
would deliberately seek to overthrow all the
muniments of American freedom, and trtet to
chance for the [evolution, out of the chaos
which they propose to create, of some sem
blance or shadow of the republic which once
existed. The course of the President was, how
ever, none the less clearly defined.
He would have been false to his
duty if he had permitted any tie
of party, any political allegiance, any sense
of gratitude to those who elected him, or hos
tility to those who opposed him, to cause him
to swerve for a moment from the impera
tive obligation of his oath to support the Con
stitution and to see justice equally adminis
tered to the people of all sections. And the
result of the struggle, let us confidently hope,
will be that which is taught as well by experi
ence as by reason. We are not without pre
cedents, in which a President has
succeeded in having himself sustained
against his enemies. Indeed, in nearly
every issue of that sort which has been
made, the President has proved the stronger.
General Jackson waged successful war against
his political adversaries. Mr. Tyler lived to
see his principles adopted by the country, and
to die with the personalrespect of all, though
the had a long and a fierce fight with the Con
gresses which existed during his administra
tion. Mr. Fillmore, when he became Presi
dent, at once cut loose from those sectional
and revolutionary spirits who expected to use
him, and exhibited a broad catholic spirit
which commanded the respect of every true
patriot in the country. Let us hope that the
parallel will be continued-that in the contest
between the party madness of the radicals
and the conservative firmness of the Presi
dent, the decision of the grand inquest of the
people will be again on the side of justice and
tight. Mr. Sumner is reported to have gone
to the White Mountains to recruit his health.
Let us hope that the eternal snows upon their
summits may cool the fever of his brain, and
that he may return to Congress next ninter
with some disposition to revise his revni-:
tionary programme, and to do what is right,
not merely out of consileration for eighet nmil
lins of tllhe people of the country, but out of
reiard ftr the salvation and perpetuity of

Tie RnH.v. FA[. o.' o ) EN.IARK.--.A Cer
respondent of the New York HIerald ha th!e fol.
lowing description of the royal family uof Den
mark in a letter gioiug an account of their visit to
tihe United States iron-clad Mliantonomah, at
Copenhagen. He says:
The hing (Christ'an IX). a tall, inly formed
man, with black hIair, anod whikerl and moutache
worn a la tniliaire, was dressed id fulll oliforn of
a general, and wore upon his breast the grand
cross of Demnark, and three or four other decora
tions of the first order. The queen Louise, a lady
of nearly the same age as the king, next reached
the deck. She was attired in a simple but elegant
dress, with no pretensions to gorgeous style. The
Crown Prince Frederick, a young man of perlhalps
twenty years, in military uniform, wearing several
decorations.
The Princess Dogmar, betrothed to the future
emperor of all the Rssians, attired in a blue silk
dress with white stripes, and a pink hat of the
latest Paris style. The little Prince Waldamar,
and Princess Thyra, plainly attired, made up the
royal family. The king's brother, Prince John,
in full uniform, accompanied the king. Theothers
of the royal party were Admiral Irminger, and
several naval officers and officers of the king's
household. All of them spoke English with fn.
ency and correctness, which was quite a relief, as
few foreigners pretend to know anything of the
Danish.
Of course, next the king, the most prominent
person in the party was the Princess Dagmar, the
betrothed of the Czarowitch of Russia. She is
certainly a lady of more than ordinary claims to
personal beauty. Her face is oval, regnlar in its
lines, plump and rosy. Her hair is of rather dark
brown line, rich, glossy and wavy, and worn short
in consequence of her late sickness, which it is
said impaired her beauty somewhat, though her
complexion seemed very brilliant and soft. Her
eyes were bright and fuill of lively faoheo and sen
timent. She conversed with freedom, and evinced
high ability and a comprehensive lknowledge of
every subject tooched upon. She woull be re
garded in any circle as a very delightiltl tierson.
