The Maffrafd QaMti«u, Has Congress authority to pass a general law defining the qualifications of electors of State legislatures? We published yesterday morning another commuricatiou from “Re publican,” In which It Is claimed that this au thority Is conferred by the constitution. If It is so conferred, the framers of the constitu tion must hare intended to grant that author ity. An instrument which provides for its own amendment must be construed strictly according to the intention of its authors. Changing circumstances afford no excuse for varying rules of interpretation, for if the in strument no longer represents the wishes of the people of the United Slates, it may be altered. The question then is simply wheth er the clause which guarantees a republican form of government to every Slate was de siyned to authorize Congress to regulate suf frage in the States. “Republican” argues very strongly that no absolute and unconditional power over suf frage was retained by the States. It they should prescribe regulations restricting the suffrage unduly, if they should become oli garchies, then unquestionably Congress Is au thorized to interfere. A committee of the House of Representatives is soon to report whether the constitution of Maryland is re publican, and Congress has’ an undoubted right to enter upon that inquiry. But would the First Congress have been authorized to raise that question respecting any State con stitution then existing ? Was it not assumed that all the State constitutions were then re publican? This must be granted. The qual ifications of voters were quite different In dif ferent States. In Tennessee free negroes vot ed. In New Jersey w.'men voted. In some of the States, on the other hand, negroes were absolutely debarred from voting. Yet all these governments were recognized as repub lican, and must still be so. recognized accord ing to the intention of the framers of the Constitution. They ought not to be, but they are. Because they ought not to* be, we must seek a remedy; because they are, we must find the remedy in an amendment to the constitution, •Section 2, article 1, of the constitution de fined tho qualifications of voters In the differ ent States, distinctly saying that they should be what they then were under the State con stitutions. The regulation of the suffrage was not left to legislation either State or nat'onai. The comment on this section In the Federal ist Is conclusive on this point. We copy from No. 52, written by Madison: The definition of the right of suffrage is very justly regarded as a fundamental article of re publican government. It was incumbent on the convention,therefore, to define and estab lish this tight in the Constitulon. To have left it open for the occasional regulation of the Con gress would have been Improper, for the reason lust mentioned. To have submitted it to the legislative discretion ot the States would have been improper for the same reason, and for the additional reason, that it would have rendered too dependent on the State govern ments that branch of the Federal government which ought to be dependent on the people alone. To have reduced the different qualifica tions in the different States to one uniform rule, would probably have been as dissatisfactory to some ol the States as it would have been diffi cult to the convention. The provision made by the convention appears therefore to be the best that lay within their option. It must be satis factory to every State, because it is conformable to the standard already established or which mau be established by the State itself. It will be safe to the United States, because being fixed by the State constitutions it is not alterable by the State governments, and it cannot be feared that the people of the States will alter this part of their constitutions in such a manner as to abridge the rights secured to them by the Fed eral constitution. The “reason just mentioned,” twice alluded to in this extract, is the possibility that a body like Congress or a State Legislature might abridge the right of suffrage. Mr. Madison’s opinion was that this danger had been avert ed by entrenching this right in the State con stitutions. It is worth considering whether, if Republican's interpretation of the constitu tion should be accepted, some future Congress may not undo the work he proposes for the Fortieth Congress. If we art ready for im partial suffrage, why not establish it perma nently in onr constitution ? Why not build on Bolld foundations the temple of liberty which we are trying to rear? Democratic Crewing. It is both amusing and provoking to read the comments of the Copperhead Journals on the recent State elections—amusing when ohe feels disposed to laugh and be merry— provoking when we see a fall purpose to de ceive the people and make them believe that a terrible reaction had taken place and that the Republican party with its work of re form but half done is about to be swept en tirely from the face of the earth. Now what are the facts ot the case? Wbat wonderful victories have the Democrats gained ? What reasons have they for shouting until their throats are sore,4k firing their guns, forming processions and making suclr demonstrations ? Their object is to deceive the people and in duce them to fall into the rebel lines which the leaders formed during the war. The smoke has passed off from the battle fields and we can now clearly see the wounded and the dying. On a close survey of these scenes we find the slaughter much less and not more disastrous to the Republican party than the elections in 1862, and what that defeat was we can all recollect. How did Ohio vote in that year? The Republicans lost the State by 6000, but tbe next year the people were aroused from tbeir apathy and overwhelmed the Democrats with 100,000 majority. So will it be in 1868 when great national issues come distinctly be fore the people. This year tbe Democrats brought out their lost vote while the Repub licans kept back and did not put forth half their strength. But it will be seen next year In fall blast. No one donbts that, not even the Democrats who now shout so terribly over their great victories. Victories! Heaven save the mark! In 1862 they earned Ohio State, but the result of this pretended Democratic victory is tbe election of a Republican gover nor! If they have any reason to blow tbeir trumpet over such a result, let th em blow It until they burst their cheeks. Now what is tbe great democratic gain In Pennsylvania? What have they done this year which calls for shouting and firing can non ? Why, they have elected a Judge of the Supreme Court while the Republicans have the Legislature and full control of State af fairs. No doubt many Republicans voted for Judge Sharswood on personal considerations without regard to his poiitical sentiments. It must be confessed that the Democratic wire pullers managed very adroitly so far as the county ticket was concerned in Philadelphia It has turned out that the city carried the State. But for the Democratic gains In the city Sharswood would have been defeated. Such are the facts in relation to Pennsylvania and Ohio, the two great States upon which the Democrats rely for proof of the great reac tion in the political world when In fact none exists. The Democrats did not throw so many votes this year as they did last, In Penn sylvania and yet they have the effrontery to I Th,jlr *°» »» the last elec How did the election go In ludiaua? Th0 returns show that the Republicans have uu,lo large galas la almost every pert of the hut*, This “great reaction” which the Copperhead papers have talked so much abou* did not happen to touch Indiana St all. Sven the Copperhead journals there rejoice In very mild strains over the apathy of the Republi cans In Ohio and Pennsylvania. They have as much as they can do to explain how the democracy happened to sustain such heavy losses in their own State. The Republican majority in Indiana is over 20,000, larger than it was in 1864, and nearly 10,000 larger than it was in 1866. The Republicans elected their county tickets in two-thirds of the counties, and ten of tbe eleven Congressional districts gave Republican majorities. Now how about Iowa? There did not seem to be much of a reaction in that State in favor of the Demo crats. The boot is on the other leg. We be lieve even the Argus did not crow much over lows. Ail this hue end cry about democrat ic gains, great reaction and new life claimed for the Copperheads are sounds signifying nothing, gotten up to tickle tbe ears of the groundhogs. But it will not drf. The peo ple are not fools. Most of them can read and undersUnd, essecieliy those who Jive in what were always tree - States.— We do not remember the time in the his tory of our country when any politcial party attempted to make so loud a ary with so little wool. But they have been in such a hopeless minority tor so many years, have suffered so much for crossing the war path of their country, and have taken on such a back-load of ain and shame during the rebellion that we ought rather to pity them in their ex tremity than wonder at their demonstrations of joy upon so slight a foundation. We are entirely willing to let them crow, but they ought to tell some truths and shame tbe old fellow who has had a mortgage upon the whole lot of them for the last seven years. Mailer* la New York. Americana in Europe—The “Indian Sum mer” doum the Harbor, up the Hudson, in Central Park—The Natural Gorge in Harlem Hirer. New Yoke, Oot. 21,1807. To the Editor nTthe Press: The charge is too true that the American people allow business and the worship of the “Almighty dollar”, to engross too much of their attention, while the physical and men tal man goes to wreck and ruin for want of relaxation. We need more of the spirit of the ancient prayer: “Give us neither poverty nor riches.” Money-making is not the chief end of man, however mubh it may appear to be the case from a critical observation of life in this great business emporium. This charge, we are hapjfy to say, had too mnch force at a former day; at the present we are in the midst of reformation. A change has come. During the season now closing there were more Americans in Europe than ever known before, and “on the Rhine” is now as common from the lipa of the American trav eler abroad as “on the Hudson" is at home. Paris is swarming with Americans, and the indefatigable Yankee is wending his inquir ing way Into Switzerland, Belgium, Germany and Italy, intent on pleasure, information, ex perience, or health. This is all very well ior those who can pay for It. But a very small portion of the 1,000,000* people of New York city are thus enjoying themselves. Only the wealthy are doing it. Take out, too, ail who go to Saratoga, New port and other points east, west, north and south in our own country, and there is an immense population left, that in the damp, torrid, malarious term must get God’s fresh air somewhere. Recreation is as needful for the artizan, the clerk and the laborer, as it hf for the millionaire. It is useless to expect the advance of morals or religion in a com munity shut out from the perfUme of fields and flowers and the holy descending of na-* ture's balmy zephyts. Thanks to the God of Nature that He has opened such grand avenues and such exalted standpoints of enjoyment right here within the reach of an hour, where for a mere pit-' tance the poor man may have his fill of nat oral scenery, vieing with the beauties of the valley of the Rhine, or the crags and slopes of Switzerland. Central Park stands first and foremost witbln reach of all.• I.et n.it its cheapness detract from its merit. It is a paradise. Na ture and. art have made It one of the pretti est spots to be found anywhere. No wonder It is the pride of a New Yorker; for no other oity in America can produce Its equal. It constitutes the plane of a perfect democracy of eiijoymeut. A half-day spent there can not tail to improve man, aprovlded there is any susceptibility to Improvement; and its shaded walks, its arbors, its 'green luwus, its glassy lakes, its meandering paths ought to teem with the people of the city every day. Down the harbor to Staten and Coney la lands. spending a day In getting a snuff of the air of *eld ocean” and laving In Its cooling embraces, make a very pleasant excursion within the reach ot every one. Sandy Hook is a familiar name in the newspapers, but there are thousands of people in New York who have never taken the trouble to look at it—standing there battling the surging of the sea. Why, it Is worth going miles to see; and its surroundings are on a scale of magnific ence such as Nature only can originate. Then the harbor, the Narrows, the sandy shores of Long Island and the Jersey coast, the entrance to the greatest commercial mart on the conti nent—what a splendid panorama ? Up the Hudson (we don’t talk for boats or railroads, or anything else—but for the peo ple) is another direction to get mountain air and lnvigoration. This magnificent valley is a chain of natural beauty, where the Creator has left to human gaze some of the most in explicable evidences ot his power. Go up there some fine morning of this “Indiau Summer” into the fastnesses of the Highlands —get Inspiration from rocks, and woods, and crags, and precipices, and coves and mirrored waters—and the probability is you will go again. Point out k man who has not a senti ment in his breast to respond to the mute lesj sons of Nature as taught up the valley of the Hudson, and he carries the unmistakable cre dentials of a stoic and a heathen. » There are many places of resort in the vic inity of New York of unsurpassed natural beauty, where a day spent properly is the means of a degree of good, physically and mentally, that no other mode or means can accomplish. Let the dyspeptic “give physic to the dogs” and try the potent medicine of nature In these cnratfve retreats. The great est good of the greatest number is the wisest proposition In politics, morals and religion.— Then let us encoarsge cheap summer travel near home for the ninety-nine hundredths of the population of New York who do not go to Europe or Saratoga or Newport. The pic-nic excursions which have been gaining in popular regard tor some years past, where whole families get out of the city to spend a day among the trees and upon the green acres, are of Incalculable good. A Sun day school is not a Sunday school without a pic-nic; and even the old and conservative Masonic institution has been drawn into the custom. It is ail very well—Indeed, it is an advance in American life in the right direc tion—better than all the sermons preached or the lew that are preached, from July to September. The world Is growing better, or, rather, people are better in the “day and gen eration" of the present, with beaming faces and “good times,” than they ware under the bine-laws |w1th] sanctimonious visages long drawn out. One of tbe finest places ot resort is tbe great gorge through which Harlem River passes un der that beautiful work of art, High Bridge. A day may be profitably spent here. The air ever comes up fresh from Hurl Gate through the defile, while the great elevation on either side opens extensive and pleasant country views. It appears that at a former day a large volume of water must have pass ed down this narrow passage into East Blver. The cause of iu curtailment the memory of the oldest inhabitant does not furnish; but certain It Is that the passage between these west elevations on either side must have been “plowed out” bjr some wouderfhl pro °ess of an antique day. The place Is hill of objects of mstural beauty, while the malestlc sweeps in mid-air of the spans of High Bridge commingle art and nature’s sublimity in pleas ant blending. Go anywhere for recreation and to get the nner man recruited. Take day ofF’often It is not, neceswry to go Io Euro; e or .he North; but right here, at the door, Now York possesses a panacea for Its sanitary ills iu the unequalled natural beauties and magnificent adornment ot it* environs.
