interpreted, for, like Bible tex.
elections will bear many cons tri
tions. V>re ar-3 disposed '?o con
der that it shows the radical d
t?ust of the Democaratic party
JL. ?I
which we have often spoken, ai
tiie existence of which is un ?e..

of the war and its anteceden!
can be changed only by the eley

deal with vigor, saga:ity, ai
patriotism with, ail the quest 101
of the hour. Bui instead of r
i vealing these qualities, tho Der
ocratic party has displayed a tut
want of them. It has shown L
the organiza.ion ot the House i
continued subserviency to its ol
masters. By its elections of Sei
ators, and nominations, as i
New Hampshire, to eonspicoi
positions, it has indicated the tor
of its preferences. It has attem]
ted to carry Ohio and Pemisy
vania upon a platform of ra
monev. It has aimed zealous]
to help itself by exposing th
offenses for which the Republ
can party is responsible, but :
has shown no serious, eames
intelligent purpose or capacity c
reform or progress. It wo uh
therefore, be soi prising that i
should be preferred to the part
which, whatever its evils, is ur
questionably that which co tr
mauds the sympathy and suppoi
of the larger part of the votin
population of the Uuion, exeep
m the late rebe) Stares.
To this must be added th
conviction that although the Be
publican paru* can not eseap
responsibility for the characte
or\(] n/^f a,of fhrvc-fP wi)nm if. pLtp^c; .jj
conspicuous positions, the event
of the last few months show no
only the necessity, but the pur
pose, of the control of the partj
by those who represent its rea
spirit of progress and 3 eform. I
is the belief that the plaid pro
tests and criticisms of Republics
papers upon such scandals as thc
whiskey trials, the BELKX?I
disgrace, and the SCHENCK affair
such vigorous denunciations ant
demands as those of the Unior
Lfa<rue Club resolutions in New
York; the general feeling, o:
which evervbodv is conscious
that the condition of success is ?:
loftier tone of political morality
in administration-it is the be
lief that all such signs show a
healthy Republican revival,
which still keeps the State ol
New Hampshire in Republican
This wre say upon the presump
tion that there is some kind ci
political sigificance in the elec
tion. If there is not; if it be. as
some of the napers stoutlv o nd
with perfect composure assert,
mereh a bargain and sale; ii
each party, anxious to secure the
first marked success of this year,
sent thousands ot dollars into the
State and entered into a rivalry
for the purchase of votes, the
result of the New Hampshire
election shows only that the
Republicans spent the most mon
ev, aad that American institu
tions are far gone m utter
decaderce and decay. There is
something astonishing in the
half-indi?erent way in -which it
was asserted that the election
was carried by money, and that
more dollars would have made
the victory Democratic -instead of
Republican. The composure of
thc allegation implies that tho
lis nothing very remarkable in
Bat it is none tho less an alle?
tion that government is put 1
at auction. And this shows, lil
even other unhandsome plienor
enpn of our politics, the imper
ti ve necessity of a reform cf ti
svs'cm which makes it "ori
while f >r a party to spend mom
profusely tor success in an clo
tion. That tbe statement whk
rcmcscnis the New ii-ampsbi
polls as opon markets is large"
untrue we have no doubt wini
ever. Nothing is easier than .
make such assertions, and not'
iug is moro susceptible of exa
ge ra ti on than the amount i
monev which is given and spei
for bribery sit elections. Bi
it is alarming to see that tl
assorti n that tho go ve rn mei
cf a State was determined I
notorious fraud can be lienciall
made without exciting other tha
a languid and amused wond<
that any body should be so inni
cent as ie think it strange.
tf??cial salaries.
Thc Semite has passed a bi
restoring the President's salar
to thc oii sum of twenty-fiv
thousand dollars. The Hons
.viii pmbablv concur, and the
we presume tha. the Pr?sid?e
will veto it. We suppose so b<
cause it is well known that h
thought the compensation of th
President should be increase*.
And if the reasons were imper?
ti ve two or three years ago, the
certainly are not less now; an
he would hardly wish to subjec
his successor to inconvenience
which he has himself ex perienceo
ana which he strove successful!
to have removed. The restera
lion of the old salary is a meas
ure due to the general dem am
Jin reduction amH^ibanryaud ? ?
the popular indignation wit!
what is justly hold to be th
great social extravagance o
Washington. But the principL
of low salaries for high pub'i
officers is not a sound one. Wliei
Dr. Franklin's proposition tua
the honor should be the rewan
for public service was discarded
and most properly, since it wonk
have made the government i
kind of plutocracy, the reason o
?the opposing theory should hav<
been mor? clearly apprehended
?The ablest administrative genius
lu tlie first cabinet was that o
retired io private life tint m
might enjoy the income whict
his talent could readily command
|and that he might not leave
his family penniless. HAMILTON
could not afford to remain in
nubile life.
And that is the point: ought
not the pecuniary condition ol
high and responsible public office
to be such that men of the first
j talent may be induced to take it;
?The various great positions of the
I government at the presents time
j require for their successful and
I proper administration executive
?talents for which there is always
j sharp private competition be
i tween great enterprises o? various
I kinds. Can we expect a man
j who can command forty thousand
i dollars permanently for his abili
ty to be content with ten thou
jsand temporarily? Or, again,
jean we woudei, under such cir
Icumstances, that the ability
j which is called to public position
? compares unfavorably with that
which is devoted to private
business?. Wise heads arc specu
lating upon thc means of attrac
ting more generally sunerior men
into politics. Honor; as such.
has been found not to be enough.
The reasons ci the situation are,
indeed^ ninny, hue cue of tue
chief ani mest obvious is the
honorable reluctance of men to
sacrifice their families to them
selves, Eight out of ten clever
and hiehminded Americans, ii'
thev are asked why th ev take no
active interest or nari in politics,
instantly reply that thev can not
a?iord it.
The small extent ox the coun
try when the national govern
ment jeni into operation, the
snnplicj ty of its functions, ' the
roll of fis officers not reaching the
jnuinbej of servants of very many
I privat?-companies to day, tiie
i fceiinoToi a lanre nartv in regard
i to thus govern merit that it was,
as JEFFERSON bclittiingly called
it, a mire Department of Foreign
Affairs! and the peculiar distinc
tion of the public service at that
time, were conditions verv differ
ent iro?i those with which wc
have t'-deal. It is the interest
of thc country to day to tempt
the best ability into o??icial posi
tion. Thc favorite theory of
many worthy people that any
?average American can admirably
i perfor?t! thc duties of any office
is not justified by the fact. For
the higher political posts, the
occupancy cf which properly
changes with a change of party?
ascendency, the salaries should
j be so liberal that trained ability
would gladly accept' them, and
I would therefore put itself in the
I way to reach them by participa
tion in political affairs; while for
the Ipw?X grades of subordinate
and miustcrial positions the ten
ure should be honesty, industry,
and efficiency. Thc question is
not, foi] hoAr little can we get
this offire filled? but, how can we
ffp it gjfeh/Jie .most ability?_
SucJeonsidtTatihns (io not, of
course, apply to the Presidency.
But it *s plain that ii twenty-live
j thousand dollars was a proper
j compensation for the President
eighty years ago, it is certainly
not proper now, unless there has
been such an increase of allow
anees that the salary has been
virtually doubled.
GUAGE.-Thc orator must; command the
! whole scale of the language, f.oni the most
j elegant to the mest low and vile. Every oue
has felt how superior in force is the lan
j guage of >uc street to that of the academy,
'fha street must bc one of his schools.
Ought littf the scholar to be able lo convey
his meaning in terms as short and strong
as the porter or truckman uses to convey
his ? And Lord Chesterfled thought th'it
without beinir instructed in the dialect of
the Halles no mau could be a complete
master of French. Thc speach of the man
in the street is invariably strong, nor can
you mend-it by making it what you call
parliamentary; You say. -'If he could only
i express himself!" but he do*s already btt
j ter than any one can for him,-can alway
j get tue ear of an audience to the exclusion
I of everybody else. Well, tins is an exani
jpleinpoi.it. Tliat something which each
i man was created to suv and do, he only, or
he best, cap tell you, and has a right to su
preme attention so fir. Thc power of their
speech is stat it is perfectly understood by
alli: and nhl ie ve it to be true that wheo any
orator at a?e bar or in the Senate ?ises in
his thought he descends in his languago;
that is, when he rises to any height of
thought or passion, he comes down to a lan
guage level with the car cf all his audience
It is the merit of John Bro n and of Abra
ham Lincoln, one at Charlestown, one at
Gettysburg, in the two best specimens of
eloquence wc have had in this country.-ll
