The followuig eloquent extract, from a sjiee™ delivered by Hon. Geo. H. Pendleton, at St. Paul, Minnesota, oa the 11 tli inst., ex presses most forcibly the stupid pol icy of "accepting the situation," now so constantly repeated by the Mongrels and their parrot-tongued imitators. Mr. Pendleton's words ought to shahie every one of thein into silence:i— They tell lis, we Democrats will cling to dcud issues—the integrity of Republican government, the pi'O^orvfi ti/Jll .1/ lihi'l fr tbr inn in. tenance of our fVin.-v.itution and government, the Lappiuess of man kind! Arc these dead issues i Our love for them may be dead, our fidelity may be dead, our worthiness for them and our enjoyment may be dead, but the issues will live till they are settled in their full frui tion, and the principles which under lie them arc as durable as the Eter nal Throne. They tell us like the Bourbons, vre will forget nothing and learn nothing we will not sub mit to accomplished facts. It is a mistake. It were wicked folly to resist the inevitable. We would bow reverently in its prcsonce. But who shall open the book of fate and say of any course of events, or of any condition of things, it is fixed forever'? Who shall, with prophet ic power, read the secrets of the Almighty, and repeat in another connection the words which, only once uttered throughout all the agifs, reverberate along the course of eighteen centuries. "IT IS FINISH ED? The human mind has no pow er to discern the unchangeable. The decrees of destiny are hidden from its view, that its aspirations may not be checked, its efforts may not be palsied. When William Pitt came hack to the ministry, ho formed, with incredible energy and portion, the (Vmtinental Alliance. It required the labor of two years. Napoleon broke up his camp at Boulogne, marched his heroic le gions to the Danube, and in one hun dred days captured an army at I'lm, and shattered tho coalition 011 the bloody field of Ausferlitz. The groat ofcafcesman Was bowed to the earth—his hope was gone—his cour age broken—his efforts at an end. Broken hearted, he exclaimed, '•Roll up the map of Europe for a half a century," and died, believ ing that Napoleon had attained to universal dominion. Austria was despoiled of her fairest popessinns. Jena followed, and Prussia was hum bled to the dust Friedland follow ed, and the monarch of the North bowed his haughty head before the imperial eagles. Napoleon was mighty. His fiat vacated the throne of Naples. He pronounced the sentence, "The IIouso of JJrag anzt has ceased to reign," and that family went fugitives from Portugal to Brazil. Louis was King of Hol land Joseph was King of Spain— Murat was King of Naples The Confederation of the Rhine guarded his frontier- The Dukedom of War saw and the Kingdom of Westpha lia were tne props of his throne. Here seeniad to be an accomplish ed fact. But England refusod to "accept the situation," and in less than three years Austria was iu arras, Prussia was recuperated, Russia had become hostile, and in less than six years the empire of Napoleon had passed away—the fab ric of his power had been dissolved —Europe was established within its original limits, and ho himself languished a prisoner in tho Island of St. Helena. In 1850 the com promise measures were passed. They consisted of the admission of California, tho amendment of the Fugitive Slave law, the establish ment of government iu the territo ries. They commanded the support of tho leading statesmen of both great political parties. They were declared to be an honest, honora ble, final settlement of the issues of slavery, as connuctcd with the Fed eral Government. The national conventions of 1852 both approved them. The people thoroughly en dorsed them. But Case, and Sum ner, and Hale, and Giddings refused to "accept the situation," and on the repeal of the Missouri Compro mise, they recommenced the agita tion, which ended in war, and has obliterated from the statute book not only those laws, but the very principles 011 which those laws were based. Who shall dare to say what facts are accomplished? Who shall predict the "ways which are past finding out'?" To "accept the situation," if it be wrong, is the cowardice of a timid spirit, or the weakness of a wearied one. Error is never fixed, wrong is never es tablished. Truth wages against them perpetual war. It never wear ies. Its strength never fails. Its spirit never flags, and it is immor tal. "The eternal years of God are her's." Let us be her soldiers i and emulate her virtue. Lfct us accept nothing as accomplished un FAVOR. GI 50 PER ANNUM less our judgment and consciences approve the result as right. Let us sfund by our constitution, which we believe to right, and maintain our form of government which we have found to be beneficent. Let us ac cept no result as final which accom plishes their overthrow. Let us be unwearied in this contest, and I believe wo shall save our institu tions to bless our children even as they have blessed our fathers. A Church-grot jig- Belled Solil oquy.

New York iz red hot awl tho time for the latest news. If Ball & Black should suspend, not business, but a pig's tail in one of their shoW windows, at least fifty thousand would gaze at it tho first day, and long for one of the brussells tew car ry home and show to their wives. Rats originally cum from Nor way. I suppose this accounts for the pashion to knaw away so much. I never knew a very handsum wo man engaged in the 'woinans rights' business—they kan play tho kards they alrcddy hold to better advant age. True happiness seems tow consist in being filled with wants and pas sions 011 milk diet. Instinct tells the animals how to supply their wants, and that iz all that reazon kan do for humans. When day breaks the assets ar alwus light. After awl the philosophy 1 kan kram up 1 sometimes git disgusted with life—it seems tew be but an uncertain vicktory over base pas sions that even a mule don't have. Men aru perfektly delighted in be ing cheated until they discover the way the thing iz did, and then they are disgusted, not with the fraud, but the loss of novelty. It is a kurious fackt that with the world full uv pleasure, our prin cipal enjoyment iz in hope. Thare iz only one mortification (that I kau remember now) in be ing ritch, and that fa I should be ashamed ov myself tew say a harsh word against that noble animal, the boss but I havn't been able tew see that it is best tew let tlie breed ov mankind run out jist for the sake ov getting a boss that can trot in 2 1G. I hav noticed that those persons who hav the keenest sense uv mis ery hav also the brightest visions ov joy, but there iz sum folks whom even mollasses kaudy won't make happy, nor even muskeeters worry. 1 don't think thare iz enny more excuse for keeping a Shanghi roos ter than thare iz for keeping a horse thatyuhavtew back up to a sec ond story window tew put the croop er 011.

Johnson has done one good thing. He has kicked Stautcu out of tho Cabinet. lie would not go out until he was kick ed out. In this respect we fear he represents tho Mongrel party". It is doubtful whether they will give up power until compelled to. Mi. Jol msou asked Mr. Stanton to re sign, when he sent a most insulting letter, telling him ho would not, whereupon Mr. Johnson suspended him, aiul made Gen. Grant acting Secretary of War. We would fond ly hope that tho linch-pin being knocked out, the whole wagon will fail to picces. Tlnfro has been a curious influence surrounding Mr. Johnson which no theory has been able to unravel. Why lie should retain Stanton, who lias opposed him at every step, and why Seward should be the defender and support er of Stanton, though pretending to differ from him, and support the President, all these arc curious facts, and difficult to to understood by outsiders. Would that Andrew Johnson would rise like a giant refreshed, and hurl the enemies of our country to perdition. All he lriis to do is, simply TO OBEY HIS OATII OP OF FICE. He is Commander-in-Chief of tho army. Let him withdraw it at once from tho southern States and send it to Gen. Sherman to protect our western settlers Let him administer tho government 011 the Constitution, pure and simple, and pay no attention whatever to tho so-called laws of Congress, that presume to wipe out States. Is HE TO TURN THAI you are flat tered before yure face and abused behind it. I hav alwus konsidered abstract dogs a good thing, but I never could appreciate the utter necessity ov keeping a wood-cock dog in a thickly settled citty exclusively on porterhouse steak, when there want a live wood cock in 230 miles ov 111c but there iz plenty of folks who kan, which shows how little i know. I am loudly in favor of new things but I am opposed to eny man, even one ov our colored associates, think ing ho haz diskovered a new truth jist bekause ho baz, for the fust time in biz life, stumbled onto an old ouc. Toll BECAUSE CONGRESS HAS'? That is the question for him to ask himself, and answer if he can. With 0110 grand effort now he could right the .ship of State. Let him put Seward in the same boat with his friend Stanton, and get rid at once and forever of the whole gang of plotters, coii.^pira tors, and architects of ruin, who have dragged the country into its present abjfcs of woe.—Day Book. WHO XS A GEMTLEMAN?-—AT gen tleman is not merely a person ac quainted, with certain forms and et iquette of life, easy and sell-possess ed in society, able to speak, and act, and move in the world without awk wardness, and free from habits which are vulgar and iu bad taste. A gentleman is something beyond all this that which lies at the root of all ease, and refinement, and tact, is power of pleasing—how can be show respect for othors-how he may avoid hurting their feelings. When he is in society, ho scrupulously as certains tho position and relation of every one with whom he comes in contact, that he may give to each his due honor, his proper position. He studies how ho may avoid touch ing in conversation upon any subject which may needlessly hurt their feelings, how he may abstain from any allusion which calls up a disa greeable or offensive association. A gentleman never alludes to orappoars conscious of any personal defect, bodily deformity, inferiority of tal ent, of rank, of reputation, iu the persons in whose society he is placed. He never assumes any superiority for himself—he never ridicules, nev er boasts, never makes a display of his power, or advantage, such as is implied in ridicule, or sarcasm, or abuse, as he never indulges in hab its, or tricks, or inclinations, which may be offensive to others. Among the co-operative move ments lately reported is a furniture store at Cincinati, which has a capital of $2,000,000, and employs GOO men most of whom are share holders. There are no other move ments of importance reported among tho working people just at present, excepting those connected with co-operation. The Chicago Tribune, a Radical blue light, says the liquor aud Sun day questions will smash tbe Re publican machine out West. rrttfrPoiifiagj on (lie situa tion. The New York Correspondent of the Louisville Democrat gives tho following as the purport of a conver sation with Fred. Douglass Somebody yesterday asked Fred. Douglass (bla:k) why he didn't go down South along with tho rest of the republican orators, to help enlighten the minds of tho freodmen as to their political duties, ctc. "Because," said Fred., ''I want to train alone. I want to v.ait until those mean whites get through with their talk, and then I will begin. I notice that in all the speeches that Wilson, Kolley and the rest of them have been making to the colored folks at Richmond, Mobile, New Orleans, and other places, nothing is ever said about giving the colored men a Vice President of their own color. But they've got to make that concession to us, and that is just what I am going down South to tell our folks to insist upon." "But Fred, do you think tho Rad ical managers will accede to this arrangment'?" "I have no doubt of it, sar none at all. Wendell Phillips and Horace Greeley say they are in favor of it, and what they say has got to bo done. They arc tho men who run i" "P"'''" "lnni/ with nM JLstn. Butler, and whoever vould run that party must do what they sav." "But, do you think, i/they nom inate Grant for President) that Grant will consent to have a darkey 011 the same ticket as Yice'?"i "Don't think anything aboijfc.it, sar. Grant only counts one. It is not for Grant, or any other( nytn, to dictate to the per pic. We' are tho people. Grant i-- but one of our s^r veants sar. If he doesn't like his company, let him resign. PleVity'of otln-rs, sar, ready fo take his place plenty of others, sar. "But even if they nominate a dar key for Vice President, what good will it do your riooV" "Don't talk foolish, child. It will do us a heap of good.' In' tbe fust place, it will make a colored man presiding officer of the Senate, and then, as the President mav die, lie may be President of tho United States. That's my plan of reoo'ft sl ruction, sar and until it is adopted and madu successful, sar, the Union will never he restored, and the.coun try will never have peace." There were other queries about to be submitted to the distinguished mau and brother, but just at this moment Rev. Dr. Cheever came along, and after introducing Fred, to a blushing damsel (who was harig ing lovingly on his arm) the whole party vanished in the direction of the office of the Anti-Slavery Standard. Stanton and the Law The clause of the law upon whtbli president Johnson acted in dismiss ing Stanton is as follows That when any officer a"ppoint?tl as aforesaid, excepting judges of tho United States courts, shall, during a recess of the senate be shown by evidence satisfactoryto the president to be guilty of 111 ^froh duct in office, or crime, or 1 any reason shall become incapable* or legally disqualified to perform"•fs duties, in such ease, and in no oth er, tho president may suspend suoh officer aud designate some suitable person to perforin tomnorariiy the duties of such olfice until tho next meeting of the senate, and until tho case shall be acted upon by tho sen ate, ctc. That Stanton has been guilty of "misconduct in of&cc" of the gros sest character tho prosident and every one else of common intelli gence and patriotic instincts must be fully satisfied. It will probably be quite unnecessary for the senate to call for proofs. The presidoub wiJl volunteer them. Of all mean things of the day, the Conservatives, as they call themselves, are to most miserable. Tho Mongrels, whom they call "Radicals," believe that God has made a mistake iu creating them superior to negroes, and tbey are at work to correct this supposed blunder and "reconstruct" them selves on a basis of '. 'impartial free dom." The Conservative does not believe that the Creator has made any mistake iu the matter, but he "accepts the situation," and thinks that the works of God are really "abolished," and the "reform" of the "Radicals" certain to stick. Nevertheless, these miserable peo ple call themselves Conservatives. "What do they expect to conserve'? Certainly not the work of God, when they accept its abolition ap a FAIT ACOMPLI.
