A Popular Error. One of the ministers of our village had occasion, in the way of pointing the moral to a liigli'y edifying and interesting discourse, last Sunday, to 1 una parallel between political Iibertv as he described it l tuts coautrV with what it is, as he under Htatids it. in Enclanil. All that the reverend gentleman said as to the corruption which attaches to elec tions here is alas, too true. Votes are no doubt purchased from the nrice of a drink Of whisky nj to thousands of dollars ; even honora ble Senators and Representatives have been bribed by the score to rota for subsidizing schemes, or measures tor advancing the causes of great moneyed rings and corpora tions ; and it is charged upou al most conclusive evidcuce that the highest office withiu the gift of the Americau ueople was secured to its present occupant by fraud Demogngneism, trickery, bribery. falsehood aud debauchery blacken ottr political record aud now, per haps, to a greater exteut than ever before Las the moral sense of this people became blunted. While all this is admitted, does it warrant an unfavorable Com parisou of our country with England in cousideriug the question of pot it ical libei tv with regard to e'abh f Is the reverend divine justified by facts in holding up the English government its the only one in which (he subjects ale tree, in the true and enlightened understanding of the term t The pages of Eng laud's history are stained with crime from the earnest period 01 wbich we have knowledge. While iu ihe course of a hundred years we have uow for the first time a Presi dent who holds his position by usurpation and fraud, there is scarcely a pape in English history that does not nftk with blood and woe and crime ; or a chapter that does not furnish its lustauce of a tyrannical nsui per who has waded to the thrtiue through seas of human blood, or in which some mighty ivil conflict has laid waste and lepopulaled Britain couimotious that Were always headed by ambi tious persona who pi uu evil their countrymen into these ruinous and destructive wars for their own sel fish ends ; and martyrs to the cause of religions faith are furnished. without number, while political persecutions and proscriptions, blended with religions fanaticism, have characterized the annals of bat nation from the first. To ar rive at what she uow is, Hngianu has passed through a dreadful crucible; and now; having attained to the highest condition of liberty possible for the people of a kingdom, is there less of misery, nlore ot free dom, aa the divine referred to ex presses it, for the subjects of this model monarchy than in our re public f And is there less ot iulri gue, corruption, and dishonor at- aching to their political affairs, and does their system, aa it uow exists ufionl au instance or the broadest liberty to the subject, consonant with law and reason, is the greatest degree of happiuess more universally diffused among the masses f The visitors to foreign shores tell us that Euglaud affords no excep tion to the rule of squalid m'sery aud hopeless sorrow everywhere isible In Europe. The coudition of the wealthier classes is enviable : but the toor who compose the vast masses are almost hopelessly poor and wretched. There is not that opportunity which is offered iu our country to rse from an inferior coudition; talent and merit do not assert themselves 80 readilj j the rewards of thrift and industry dre not so readily retarded iu the way of a competence, as is nearly always the case in our country 1 but the poor must be content to remain poor and members of a class upon which those of the more fortunate grade may look down through all generations. The higher classes are blessed with privileges which are not extended to the masses of the com moil people. And while iu our- republic all men are on tbat political level from which the poor est and tbe lowliest may and do fill thB highest stations of honor id wealth, (aud, as a general rule, these really do,) such instances are isolated and of the rarest occur rence in England. Are these in creased opportunities fur all, the removal of the bans of proscription gainst any class, so that positions of honor, trust, influence and wealth may lav wit bin the reach ot all according as they may merit, is this freedom id Its liberal aud en lightened sense I Is a comparative freedom from wants tho abseuce of squalid and hopeless poverty and misery, is this happiness to a people f Then ours should be con sidered free aud happy, and 110 one should think of pointing 10 the English mouarchy as the govern ment which affords a more generous freedom, better opiortuniiies to its people than our republic. Bur. if Bugiisu writers nave given ds correct pictures, England Cannot congratulate herse'f upon being xenipt from those corrupt practices Inch the worthy diviuo depicted as characteristic ot political ofllce Seeking in our country. Iri that .most admirable work of fiction, IIou. Tittlebat Titmouso received the majority of the rotes of the shire in which he was a candidate lor Parliament. The scene is one ot the imagination, yet il is diau by au Euylii-.il writer, and were ti e p'ctnre not a fiiiibful one, tin! loinanee itself which would so falsely portray an event of common Occurrence would be voted a dead failure. The picture, while it cor. rectly portrays American occasions of the kind, must be accepted 118 iqually true of English elections. There is your demogiige, there is your hooting, unenlightened rahble ready to vole for tho brainless Tit mouse who has money or treats to liiriusli them, while they decry h's worthy and enlightened opponent to the extent of booting at aud Sto'iiing him. Lord Lyttoa furnishes us instances ot the varieties of English life which do nut. Ivy any means, go to sustain the view that Eug'aiid is a realm ot nn illoyed freedom and happiness to the S11I1 ject, antl Mr. Dickens; and other author give us pictures of the poorer classes that make us shudder. Our space is too limited to write more extendedly upou the sill ject. But it is surely a popular error to suppose tbat our English cousins are a whit, better off than we are either socially, politically or moral ly. Human nature is the same everywhere. Corrupt practices have not ceaseil to exist among the English in matters pertaining to elections, ami never will. v hat we see here in the practices ot poll ctausaiidthe ignorant voters is a true picture ot what occurs under the English government, iu so far as the political machinery of that government leembles our own. If wo cast our eyes toward the mother country to find a govern meiit free from ills that follow in the wake of ambition, or of fanaticism, or ot (lemagougeisin, avarice anu self aggrandizement, we will not find it iu England, nor in any other government constructed by human bands. There fdj and can be, no such thing aS perfection in huuiau government. All we can hope for is the highest degree of improvi ment socially, intellectually, and morally, by a liberal d illusion ot the means tor gaining knowledge throughout the tiation, so that men may be taught better than to fell 1 heir totes, as trie worthy, divine has it, "for a glass of beer.') And in our country, more rapid strides are being jiatle in the diffusion of know'edge thau Iu boasted luglaud. Despite all tbat may lie saul, rand the excellent minister did not give too dark a hue by any means to such occurrences as he described), this country of ouis is Ihe most fruitful of any that was ever yet couceived by man 111 the blessings of freedom aud happiness to its people. Men are so constructed, however, tbat they are ne'er con tent, and no condition of prosperity- can they attain, but that they are prone to look some where else as affording a truer pattern of what they desire in the way of freedom aud happiness. Dr. Choppiti, Piesident of the Sew Orleans Board of Health, has issued an order that 110 report of new cases ot yellow lever snail oe furnished the press. The Doctor, we presume, is moved to do this either because he thinks it will tend to allay the feais of the people, or because be wishes to prevent, as much as possible, unnecessary iu- jury or the business interests 01 Sew Orleans, it the order was issued for either oue of these jiur poses, it will fail. The attempt to conceal from the public the tacts about the epidemic will only give free reign to tb imaginations ot alatmi8is, and currency to all sorts of improbable rumors.
