srxxi.iT or txxzj rnnso. Editorlal Opinions of the Leading Journal upon Current Toploe Compiled Every Day for the Evening Telegraph. THE ritOrOSED NEW PA.KTY. Frtm the A. T. World. In declaring pnr belief that the movement for a ne patty cannot succeed, we would not be understood to belittle the strength and wide diffusion of the sentiment which its pro jectors aim to orgauize. The Republican party is fall of dissatisfaction. It is divided in opinion, broken by feuds, disappointed in General Grant, and feels that it cannot much longer subsist on the dry husks of conirover aies which, settled in politic, hare passed into hibtory. The dissatisfaction is more likely to grow than abate; but it does not fur nish a promising basis for a new party. The proposed movement has this singu larity that the voters would all be drawn from one of the existing political parties aad the principles from the other. Bat the pro per basis of a new political organization would seem to be some opinion whieh neither of the other parties holds or to which neither of them attaches importance; and the mem bership would naturally consist of seceders from butb. The movement now projected would not be ao much a new party as a Kepnblican bolt. This bolt is planned on the verdant expectation that the Demo cratic patty will join it and nii'se it a majority! But Democrats feel no such dihsatisf action with their party as leads many ltepublicaus to seek new political connections. The free trade doctrine whieh the new party proposes as its corner-stone has been steadily held by the Democratio party since General Jaokson's first term. The fact that many Republicans have become proselytes to free trade is an excellent reason why they should join the Democratic party by and by when they get ready; but no suffi cient reason for a new organization. The mountain did not come to Mahomet when he commanded, and so the self-possessed prophet thereupon did a very sensible thing in going to the mountain. The now-party scheme, which has caused such a flutter in the Republican papers for the last ten days, is, in one respect, note worthy and instructive. It has been dinned into everybody's ears, for a long time, that the Democratic party has no principles suited to the present condition of the country, Well! in the midst of this sing-song a new party comes to the birth, although it has not yet strength enough to briug forth. This new party, proceeding from the loins of the old Republican organization, aims to be the party of the future; to deal with none but living issues. But lo and behold, it borrows all its principles from the Democrats ! From whence it appears that the Democratic party is so rich in pertinent, timely issues that it can furnish a first-rate outfit to a young aad aspiring organization yet in embryo, which is not even Hardened into the gristle of infancy, much less into the bones of manhood. Surely, Democratic principles have not fallen into dotage and decrepitude, when the newest born, unborn, or aspiring to be born politi cai come-outers can nna noming treaner or more full of promise than plants dug bat of the Democratic nursery. The stir which this new movement is making will convince many people that the principles of the Democratio party are not so antiquated and obsolete as the Republican journals are fond of repro senting. The yearning for a new party is felt by leaders and prominent men, but not by the mass of converted voters. Citizens who do not wish to ngure in public me, wno care only for good government, and take no other part in politics than te cast a silent vote, will as readily pass directly over into the Demo cratic ranks as stop at some half-way house to save their pride, inceed, they nave no pride in the matter, but merely a sense of duty, With bustliDg politicians it is different, They wish to save appearances; to change aides without aeeming to surrender. The manoeuvring for a middle ground proceeds entiieiy troin tnis class. The reason why they cannot auooeed is, that their more obscure fellow-converts do not share their sensitiveness. A citizen who merely votes can protect himself, if he chooses, by the secrecy of the ballot: but active politicians, who wish to make a figure, cannot change their party relations without Dublicitv. Thev would rather be regarded as leaders of a new party than proselytes or cap tives in the ranks of the opposition. But as Democrats are confident of winning the quiet voters, they feel no anxiety about the would' be leaders. There is one glittering prize which dances like an ignis fatuut before the eyea of a few aspiring politicians, whom we warn not to be lured by it into deceiuui nopea. it was thought by many Democrats, in L808, that it would be a capital stroke of policy to run Chief Justice Chaae as a Presidential candi date. The reasons by which such tactios were unsuccessfully recommended then, will hare so pertinence in 17. in lsbs tnere were widespread doubts whether the Democratio party would aeoept the results of the war. Those doubts were felt to be the chief obstacle to its suooess. It waa accordingly thought by some Demo crats, whose judgment waa even then de cisirely overruled, that the nomination of Judge Chase would most effectually remove that distrust, and smooth the way to a Demo cratic triumph. We shall encounter no such misgivings in 1S72. No Deaocrat will think of going outside of the party for a Presiden tial candidate. Acquiescence in emancipation and negro voting will be by that time univer sal. No extraordinary means will be thought requisite for allaying groundless fears. 80 we advise nobody to waste effort in getting up a new party under tne misleading delu sion that it may furnish a Deatooratio eandi date for the Presidency, who will make things pleasant for his earliest supporters. We are of course gratified to witness the apread of sound revenue doctrines. Aaong the new converts we expect a great harvest of Democratio recruits when a little more time has been allowed for the crop to take root and ripen. THE CASE OF MARSHAL BAZAINE. From the N. T, Tribune. A telegram irom London announces tuat a viadication of Marahal Baaaiae will probably appear in the coarse of this week, ttosaething of the Kind is certainly neeaed, for tne credit of the French army, and still more of the im perial cause which the Marshal upholds. The voice of the subordinate officers Implioated in the surrender of Meta ia almost unanimous a angry condemnation -f Bazaine'a condaot; the testimony of the newspaper correspondents points to him as a traitor, and the Provisional Government haa ordered hia arrest whenever be may be found en the territory of Franoe. A staff officer of the surrendered army one VJ. iJtf Ylcour b1 receotly tajtfe crltkftl report of the aiege, in which he distinctly 1 cbargea the Marabal with treacnery, ana mis report has been published under tne sanction of the Government. Of course a document of this kind, when it accords so closely with the wishes of those ofifloial anperior from whom come promotion and other good gifts, is always to be taken with reserve. Without fully condemning tne Aiarnnai, tuereiore, until we have heard his defense, we shall con tent ourselves for the present with stating the case as it 6 cads, so that we mty the bet ter comprehend his atory whenever he shall eee fit to tell it. The opinion of the subordinate ,nnoers is apparently very positive that there waa no reason wby the iiriuy of the Rhine should have been fastened up uuder the walla of Met?., and there was no time, until the horses were all dead of starvation or slaughtered for food, when a vigorous sally would not have released it. The last serious engagement waa on the 31t of August the dy before the Emperor's surrender and according to the FrnnMan omcial statements tne condition 01 the field was such at the close of the day that Bazaine by a bold night mar oh might have effected a junction with MacMahon, and ao prevented the dinnster of the 1st of Septem ber. That he failed to do this does not ne cessarily imply treachery: it is more probable that the Marshal lacked the supreme military virtues of decision and moral courage which enable a commander at critical moments to seize ft great opportunity in the face of for midable dangers. But after the overthrow of the empire, the state of the case was different. A correspondent of the Manchester Guardian was in Metz all through the siege, and his last Utters which have just been received tell Bfciie remarkable facts. "After Sedan and the fall of the empire," says this writer, the news of which reached us on the 7th of September, it became evident to all that Marshal Bazaine refused to act on the aggressive, lie would not com promise nimsell in any way to puy a waiting came waa bis poncy. lie bad be tweeu 180,000 and L'00,000 men, and the be Meters were but slightly more numerous lie bad abundance of ammunition 01 all kind. Ue had horses and artillery. On. all principles ef military science it ought to have been comparatively easy for him to cut through the investing lines and make his way to PariF, while the gates of the capital were still open. Of course, tha loss would have keen heavy, but the rosult would have been ample compensation. Yet the sorties which he made from time to time, when the clamor of the Boldiers and citizens could no longer be resisted, were never earnest, and appa rently were never meant to succeed. Officers who Insisted upon vigorous lighting wero im prisoned. Newspapers which talked of aotive operations wore suppressed. But if it was clear that Bazaine did not mean to cut his way out, it was equ tlly clear that be did not mean to stand a long siege. No care whatever was taken of the stores, The commissaries petitioned again and ngiia for a reduction of tuo rations, and only sue ceeded at last, according to Colonel de Val- court, "by using aotually violent language to the Marshal's face." During at least fifty of the seventy days' siepe, officers were not only allowed to draw and use double rations in camp, but to lire upon the provisions of the town besides. - The horses of the cavalry and artillery received full rations to the very last; but this was not that they might be in good condition for a sortie, for as soon aa forage beeaiue scarce they were killed and eaten. There never waa any systematio oolleotion and distribution of the provisions in Metz, and at the time of the surrender, though luxuries were scarce, there was still a supply of food, nobody really knows how much. All this, it is true, does not prove treaohery. But the escape from the charge of treachery is in a confession of inoompetency to which, indeed, we have heretofore been disposed to assign most of the extraordinary circum stances connected with the siege and the surrender. In the meantime, Bazaine carried on nego tiations with the Empress and the Imperial ists, the exact history of which will perhaps never be fully divulged. A soore of different versions have been published of the mission of Bourbaki to England, and the missions of Gen. Boyer to Versailles. It is nnneoessary to know the particulars; it is enough that Bazaine continued to recognize the dynasty, and, though false to France, remained true to the man who had made him a Marshal. He never proclaimed the Republic; he never al lowed the army or the citizens of Metz to know the namea of the Provisional Govern ment; he never annevneed any other authority aa ruling in Paris except the purely military authority ef General Trochu. At last he pro posed to march his army out on parole not to fight against Prussia again during this war, and lead them into Paris there to "protect" the Legislative Chamber until it should esta blish a permanent government in place of the "mob" now controlling affairs. This proposal Bazaine himself acknowledges that he made, and it was not carried oat only be cause Ton Moltke would not consent to it. The previsions being nearly exhausted, the horses gone, and relief hopeless, he had then ao alternative but surrender. Now we think it will be difficult for any to read thia story without the oonviction that Bazaine fully expected, by keeping an army of 175,000 men intact and well fed while the Prussians overran the rest of the country, to find himself virtually dictator of the political situation. He probably calculated upon a radical uprising in Paris, and made little doubt that the Geraaana, rather than face the danger of republican infection, would allow him to intervene at the last moment, and re store the Empire. The loas of Aliace and Lorraine would be charged to the iaoom po tency of the Government of the National De fense. What aort of "protection" would be held over the Chamber by the Imperial Mar shal and the German Generals aetiif ia concert, our readers can eaaily divine. The Prussia strate gist waa too wary te listen te the Marshal's proposal. He knew that whatever Bazilue night promise, it would be impossible t) trust hia men; and to suffer the army from Meta to aet ont for Paris would only be to swell the namber of the frano tireurs with deserters, who would drop from the ranka at every atep, and to reinforce the garrison of Paris with thousands of well-armed troops, who would revolt from their cooauiander as soon aa they learned the purpose for which they had been soli. It was a fitting punish ment for Bazaine'a purpose that he ahoutd be forced at last into oae of the most shameful capitulations recorded ia hktory, and, ia atead of becoming the dictator of his coun try's, destiniea should be the one of all Frenchmen set even excepting Napoleon whom Fraaee sew most despises and hate. REMEDIES FOR ABUSES IN R1ILR01D MANAGEMENT, m thK. T. Tint. The amendment to the Conetitntion of Michigan by which railroad tariffs for freight and passengers are made subject to legisla tive control, ia one of many signs of popular Impatience in regard to the exercise of power liy great corporations. Valuable privileges are sought, and thea are used disadvantageous! to the people whose representatives nave granted them. The local interests of a State are injured by business organizationa which it baa created; enterprises sanctioned nnder a belief that they are to operate beneficially, are ao manipulated that they prejudice what their promoters professed to help. The gene ral tendency of railroad management ia to produce this result. Through trafno takes the precedence of local, and is carried on more advantageous terms, passengers pay lesB, relatively, for long routes than for short onca. Competing lines are bought up, and monopolies become masters of the aitnatioa. These are some of the evils which the Michi gan amendment ia intended to correct; and they are evils from which almost every State suffers in a greater or less degree. Whether looal legislation may be relied upon to correct them is, however, a question to which experience does not furnish a very satisfactory answer. The Legislatures are far from immaculate. The lobby has become a power, which the money and patronage of railroad companies easily explain. They take possession, literally, of the members, aud bribe them to enact any law which corporate convenience seems to require. The Erie hw exemplified both the extent of this influence, and the nses to which it is applied, more shamelessly than any other corporation, but it is far from being alone in its infamy. Nor is our Legislature ex ceptional in its corruption. Harrisbnrg is riot mary degrees removed in rascality from Albany. The movement for a conven tion to attend the Pennsylvania Constitution deiives most of its force from the audacity with which members of the Legislature sell their votes, and the power whioh corporations hove thus acquired for purposes at variance with the publio weal. Similar examples tuiht be drawn from other States all telling a tale well calculated to shake confidence in the efficacy ol the means to be employed in Michigan to arrest the present tendencies in railroad management. The universality of the grievances eom plaited of, and the unsatisfactory results of reliance upon remedial action of a looal character, are circumstances which suggest the desirableness of Federal legislation on the general railroad question. Railroad charges and management so directly affect the industrial and commercial interests of communities that rigid aud honest super vision is indispensable. Producers and coa Biiuicrp, East and West, have a common con cern in the cost of transportation, in the ex tcnuioa of facilities, and in a management which realizes responsibility to the public, as well as the desire for profit on the part of stockholders. The drift of things is, how over, altogether the other way. Railroad companies are the masters ofjthe community instead of its servants. They stifle competi tion, disregard local wants, and by amalga mation secure arbitrary oontrol of the lead ing avenues of trade and travel. Single rail roads are but links in a vast chain; and a few combinations ere rapidly acquiring a supre macy which bodes no good to the future of our internal commerce. A little arrange ment among themselves will soon enable them to charge what they please, to run the lines as they please, and to Bet local protesta tions at defiance. If an adequate remedy is ever to be ap plied, it must coma from Congress. There are careful observers who profess to see in the distance the development of influences which will enable combined railroad companies to dictate -Federal laws as effectually as Fisk, Jr., now dictates the course of Governor Hoffman and his party at Albany. But that stage has not been reached, and never will be if the country can be induced to exact timely interference to check the progress of railroad consolidation and monopoly, and to enforce conditions that are essential to the protection 01 public interests. The con stitutional right of Congress to do this may have been doubt ful so long as railroads were limited to the States under whose laws they were severally organized. But State boundaries are no longer respected in railroad construc tion or management, and State jurisdiction, therefore, no longer suffices to regulate the leading roads. The conflict of jurisdiction ts in itself an evil, to be remedied if possible. And when a line runs through three States, and combined tines run across half the conti nent, there is a necessity for checks and gua rantees which no one State can enforce. The authority by virtue of which Congress regu late the commerce of the lakes and navi gable rivers, is alone equal to the proper regulation of the enormous trafilo between the States over which railroad combinations now exercise almost unchecked oontrol. THE MUDDLE AMONG THE REPUBLI CAN POLITICIANS. Vrem the A'. J'. Herald. When Napoleon aet out in July for Berlin he little thought that he would "fetch up" i September at Sedan. So our self-conoeited politicians, with their Napoleonic ideas, are always getting into trouble. Senator Sumner belongs to this elasi. On his present lectur ing tour out West he haa been "interviewed' by an expert reporter, and haa availed him self of the opportunity to define his position in reference to General Grant. The Senator "baa no doubt that General Grant ia an hon est man and adminislera the government the best that he knows how." "He haa had the best chance conceivable to do great things," "but he don t know everything, and, unfor tnnately, he don't know that he don't know it, Now, Zach Taylor," continued the learned Senator, "waa not a brilliant man or a states man, but he knew it and aurroanded himself by men who made up his deficiencies." Here, then, the eld proverb will apply, "The fool thinKetn mniseli a wise man, but the wise man knoweth himself to be a fool." Thia, as near aa we can make it ont, ia Sumner's parallel between Grant and Taylor. It further appeara that Mr. Sumner ia of the opinion that the St. Domingo annexation treaty, with numerous lota staked off along Samana Bay and marked "Cazeneau" and "Babcock" and "Baez," with one er two par ticularly large onea marked "Grant," "was a bad business;" that Minister Motley, intensely American and a first-rate diplomat, who, after the fashion of Caleb Gushing, wrote out his wn instructions, has been removed ou the Senator' account, for that General Grant's "personal feeling is very bitter in that direc tion. This, too, with Motley s eulogium on Grant embodied in Badeau'a Life of the General, and when Secretary Fish jumped at the plan of Motley wriung ais own lnstrue tions. Worst of all evidently ia Mr. Samner'a estimation, "Grant's administration seems to go too much by personal preferences." To aum up these views of the disappointed Sena tor in plain terms, he thinks that General Grant la an honest man, but a fool; that he i doieer the best be ean, but la doing every thing wrong; that he was up to hia eara in tke St. lomingo speculation; that Motley was recalled Ltcanee his mend bumuer op pof d and defeated the treaty in the Senate, and that General Grant in his appointments prefera hia friends to hi enemies. But what does all this amount to f It is but the ringiag of the changes in the same old atory whioh self-oonoeited, soured and disap- Jointed politicians have raised against every resident from Washington down. We do not remember that Mr. Sumner had any better opinion of Linoeln in the White House than he has of Grant, and, if we are not mistaken, he was completely taken in at first by Andy Johnson. The Senator's opinions, therefore, of General Grant are of little consequenoe, especially while "Motley is hia only wear." But he takes a very shallow view of that St. Domingo treaty. What did it signify if a few speculators on the ground had staked off certain lots on Samana Bay, marking among them some for General Grant, if you please ? What did that bagatelle of an Objeotion amount to when the treaty for some two mil lions of money would give as a tropical island worth forty North Pole Alaskas? Yet we know that Mr. Sumner warmly supported the Russian treaty, although numerous lobby birds shared at least the two hundred thou sand over and above the seven millions in gold paid for Alaska. Mr. Sumner, however, is not the only wise man of the East or of the West who has dis covered that General Grant has no sense and is driving his administration and his party to the dogs. Senator l enton, Binoe the appoint ment of honest Tom Murphy as our Collec tor, is of the same mind as Sumner. We have seen, too, that according to our amiable poets of the Pott nothing has gone right with Gene ral Grant since the appointment of General Sickles to Madrid. Nor havo we forgotten the fearful rumpus raised among the Pennsylvania party wirepullers when the kind-hearted Mr. Borie was made Secietary of the Navy. They could not see that the President was in this Appointment paying a neat compliment to the Presbyterian Church (Via School) and our American citizens of French desoent kill ing, you may say, two birds with one stone. Aa for Carl beburz, of Missouri, he is of the go-ahead school of George Francis Train, and doubtless thinks that if he ia not President he ought to be, and that General Grant waa too presuming in acting in his Missouri ap pointments upon his own judgment. Schurz, alter bis late services to the Democrats in Missouri, called the other day, it appears, to report progress at the White House, but General Grant was engaged. We infer that Schurz is more concerned about Grant than Grant is about Schurz. Ever since that tre mendous retreat of Schurz at Chaacellors ville we have thought that in tactics and strategy he is hardly equal to Grant. I'ar ahead, however, of all these other Ke pnblican free shooters (Der FreischuU) is the bold, dashing, and slashing fellow of the Chicago Tribune. Convinced, by hook or by crook, that free soil, free speech, a free press and free men are dead issues, and that the time has come for free trade or revenue re form or cheap salt, or something of that sort, he has tried the experiment of moving the Republican party in this direction in a balloon (giving General Grant the cold shoulder), and starting at Chicago. In this enterprise John Wentwoitb, known as "Long John, standing six feet in his stockings, was brought out as an independent Republican candidate in the (Jhicato district; but as "Long John came out short in the election the 1'ribune is tack ing about to see how the land lies before heading again for "Cowes and a market." lbey do things on the Inland seas and bound less prairies of the West on a grand style; they nominate Presidents at Chicago and raf fle off opera houses there; but the headquar ters of the party in power are at Washington, and General Grant is the head of the party and the party newspapers, and the fussy party politicians are the tail of the kite. Sixth and lastly, the captain of the ship must be recognized as captain by his crew or the ship will be apt to fall into the hands of the Key West wreckers in attempting to run the Gulf Stream. When there are half a dozen or more would-be captains on board mutiny and confusion follow, and the ship may be easily boarded and captured by the enemy, or all hands with the sinking hulk may be turned adrift. These wrangling and clashing leaders and organs ef the Republican party are in a fair way to bring the administration and themselves among the breakers. They would imitate the fool in the fable who killed the goose that laid his golden eggs; they would play their game of Andy Johnson with Gene ralGrant, forgetting that in the next Con gress Grant, with his veto, will be master of the field. They forget, above all things, that General Grant saved the party in 1808, that he haa saved it in 1870, in spite of its feuds and party squabbles, and is the only power that can save it in 1872 against the terrifio flying artillery, "big Indiana" and mitrailleuses of Tammany Hall.
