THE DAILY EVENING TELEGRAPH IMiILADKLPHIA, FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 25,1870.
sriniT or Tnn rnsss. Editorial Opinions of the Leading Journal upon Current Topios Compiled Every " Day for the Evening Telegraph. JOHN RRIGIIT IN WASHINGTON. From the .V. 1". Tribune. Tbere is no doubt that Great Britain in growing uneasy at the Bpeotre of the unet tled Alabama claims. If there should be a general var in Europe and poaca now in any part of the Old World is precarious in the extreme it would be impossible to affect any longer a contempt for our "rtentiuienUl grievance." The precedent established by the English Government in lStil would be come a menace of terrible iu,port, and the misdeeds of Mr. Laird and Earl llussell might bring their own punishment by sweeping Ikitish commerce from the ocean. The traditional friendship be tween Russia and the United States, and the sympathy which has been manifested in this country for the Czar' position on the Black Sea question, are natarally considered with some anxiety in London; and though it is of course well understood that we should take no active part in any Euro pean struL'"le, there are obvious reasons why Great Britain should want to got cloar of all her American entanglements before she be comes involved nearer home. The warlike demonstrations of certain hot patriots in this country are rated at their true significance, and therefore cause no alarm ; but the Euro pean prospects put the Alabama question in a new light. It is not General Butler, but rrince Oortscbakoff, who has roused the Brit ish conscience. A good indication of the anxiety of Eug lishmen to Lave the dispute settled is tue proposition of a writer in the Fall Mall Uazrtfe to send John Bright to Washington to conduct the negotiations. The Pall Mall (layette has never sympathized with our feel ings on this qnestion. It represents that governing class which all through the war was most hostile to us, aud ever since the war has pronounced our demands preposter ous. Mr: Bright, on the other hand, has boen more nearly in accord with us than any other man in England. Whatever ground he might take , as the representative of his Gov ernment, in respect to the main question . in dispute, ho cer tainly appreciates our view of the case, and estimates properly not only the respon sibility of Great Britain for the ravages of the Confederate cruisers, but the gravity of that far more delicate issue, the recognition of bel ligerency. No American needs to be re minded of Mr. Bright's eloquent denuncia tions in 1'arliaruent and elsewhere of the Birkenhead ship-builders, and the inefficiency or complicity of the Government which allowed its neutrality laws to be violated in the interest of the rebellious slave-holders. None of ns have forgotten "his scathing re buke of the sympathy bestowed upon "the great conspiracy against human nature," the "portentous and monstrous shape" which through the lips of Mason and Slidell "asked to be received into the family of nations." lint Mr. Bright went further than this. He admitted that the hasty recognition of the bel ligerency of the Confederates, and the general attitude of the British Government towards them, was a grievance of vhica we had good reason to complain. "If we have not done thi ngs that ore plainly hostile to the North," said he in a speech at Rochdale in December, liCl, "there has not been that friendly and cordial neutrality which, if I had been a citi zen of the I'nited States, I should have ex pected. Of the proclamation of belligerency he declared in the House of Commons, iu March, ISC", that "it was done with un friendly haste, and it had this efl'ect, that it gave comfort and courage to the conspiracy at Montgomery and at llichniond;" and he went on to imagine what the feelings of the English people would be if, in case of a great revolt in Ireland, the United States, by a similar hasty recognition, should give com. foit and support to insurgents against the authority of the British crown. If Mr. Bright is well disposed to listen to our side of the story, we are equally-ready to hear his. The Ameriean people have the fullest confidence in his just and kindly dis position , and would pay more regard to rea soning from him than from any other man in England. We do not know that there is any particular ground to believe that the British Government will act upon the suggestion of the London newspaper, but we should rejoice in such an appointment, and we are confident that good would result from it. Still, how ever the question may be reopened, we trust the English people will understand that we have no disposition to take advantage of their foreign embarrassments to force a settlement General Grant's policy has the cordial appro val of the country, and that polioy looks to a settlement of the controversy on such terms and in such a manner that the ties of friend ship which ought to unite the two countries will be permanently strengthened. CAUSES OF THE DECAY OF REPUBLI CANISM AT THE SOUTH. From the A. F. Hun. The causes of the decline of the Republi can party in the South, and particularly ia the extreme boutn, as uiscioseu in tne recent election?, are obvious to those who look below the surface of events. As the term is understood at the North, there is, strictly speaking, no Republican party in the former slaveholding States. In .1800 no Republican electoral tickets were put in nomination in ten of those States. In Missouri the ticket of that party received in that year 17,000 votes. This, however, was an exception to the general rule in those States, for the ob vious reason that St. Louis and a few other localities in Missouri had long been imbued with a free-soil sentiment. Delaware, Mary land, Virginia, and Keutuoky, ia all of which great efforts had been madd 1 1 estab. lisa a Republican party, only gave the Lin com electors in the aggregate about 1)000 votes. Daring the lebellioii, of course, no Re publican party existed in the insurgent States. In 1801 electoral tickets favorable to Lincoln were put in nomination in the South only in Maryland, West Virginia, Missouri and Kentucky. By means of the presence of tue aiuiy, ana or tne issue or preserving the Union and crushing the Rebellion, the three first-named States were barely carried for Lincoln, while in Kentucky he was beaten about :s7,0(o. During the reconstruction era under An drew Johnson, politics in the late rebellious States were in a chaotio condition. The former Rebels were disfranchised, the negroes were admitted to the ballot-boxes, there was an occasional rally at the polls by authority of some epeciai act or Congress, but no Re publican party of the Northern type was yet orgaoizeu. In lndp, as the Presidential election ap proacLed, a party was formed all through the South for the purpose of supporting Grant and oppoMng Seymour. The rank and file of this hastily created organization was made up of negroes who had just emerged from slavery. The leaders were composed of Southern whites who put forth a questionable claim to have been friends of the Union during tb9 Rebellion, and whom the dethroned oligarchs called "scalawags," and of recent emigrants from the North, the dehrin of the Federal armies, whom the natives of the South stigmatized as "carpet baggers." The result of this unprecedented combina tion of political elements was, thut in 1W Grant received the support of eight of the former slaveholding States, casting fi" elec toral votts, and Seymour tbe support of five of th se States, having i'.O electoral votes; while Virginia, Mississippi, and Texas were not allowed to vote at all. The electio&s of this present year show that the States of Alabama, Florida, Missouri, North Carolina,.Tennes8ee,West Virginia, and rerbnr8 Arkansas, which voted for Grant in 1H!S, have now gone for the Democrats: while the Democrats have lost no Southern State which then voted for Seymour except Lou isiana. This significant change is duo to the fact that in the btrict sense of the term there is not now, and never has been, a Republican party in the old slaveholding States; and that the organization wnicu bears mat name is oi so recent growth, and is composed of such Decuhar materials, as to allord an unstable rnsis on which to stake the fortunes of a na- ional administration in thut section of the Union. THE "MISSION" OF THE DEMOCRATIC FAR IT. F'ovx the S. l'i Th'idt The World, whose course for along time past Las proved that it has no principles, publishes a long article to prove that the De mocratic party ought not to have any either. This is on the plan of the animal which lost ts tail, and thou delivered a long oration to all the rest of its kind to prove how much better J.hey would look if they cut off their tails also. It protests against the increasing demand of the Democracy throughout the country for what it si.eeringly calls "ainrma tive issues." It appoals to history to show that affirmative issues never built up a cause or a party; and goes back to the beginning of creation and cites Moses (not Moses Tay lor) as proof of the fact. "Eight of the ten commandments," gravely remarks the World, "begin with 'thou sbalt not, and of the other two one is equally divided between positive and Eegative. Christianity itself begins in negation undoing the effects of Ad.iiu' fail ns the necessary preliminary to the creation of a new heart." With this specimen-brick of the Wurhts historical argument against affirmative issues, or, in other words, against parties with prin ciples, we pass to what the same brilliant authority announces as the 'mission of the Democratic party. And what does the roader suppose it isr" Listen, "rower, says the H w((f, "is always stealing from the many to tbe few. It is the mission of the Democratic party to arrest this tendency. The Demo cratic party is founded on faith in man. It believes in hi3 capacity to walk out of leading-strings, to judge correctly of his own in terests, to find his own way to happiuess." Very well. Accepting this statement of the creed of Democracy as correct, let us see how the Democratic party has kept its faith and fulfilled its "miKion." For twenty years previous to the rebelliou. the Democratic party of this country was tbe unswerving ally and champion of less than three hundred thousand slave-holders, who wielded supreme power over twelve mil lions of human beings, four millions of whom were not only not allowed to "lind their own way to happiness," but were denied the right even to own themselves. When this unrighteous power, thus "stolen from the many to the few," sought to extend its sway over yet other millions of freemen, the Democratic- party supported its claims and advocated its right so to do. When, failing in the attempt, it waged war upon the Gov ernment, and sought to break up the Union. the Democratic party openly sympathized with it, gave it all the aid and encourage ment it could, and uniformly and systemati cally opposed every measure adopted by the Government to overthrow the Rebellion and maintain its own existence. Then it was that the World shone so conspicuously as the mouth-piece of those "negative issues which, in spite of past defeats, it still recom mends the Democratic party to follow. The chief argument of the World at that time was that the war for the Union was a "nig ger war," and all engaged in it were "nigger worshippers." President Lincoln was an "ape, Secretary Stanton was a ' tyrant, Grant was a "butcher," Butler was a "Least," and so on through the entire cata logue of loyal men who were engaged in putting down a rebellion waged in tne inte rest of the few against the many. The mis sion of the Democratic party has been the same since as it was before and during the war. It has continued a steadfast ally of the "power which is always stealing from the many to the few." It has opposed every form of reconstruction that tended to secure liberty and equal rights for all men, from the first constitutional amendment, which forbade the restoration of human slavery, to the last which enfranchised the negro. But it is here in New York that the "mis sion of the Democratic party" is illustrated in its highest perfection, and it is a signifi cant omiEfiien on the part of the World that it failed to cite this city as a model for the rttudy of its fellow Democrats in other States. Here is a city (and it is about the only one in the United States) where the De mocratic party has been in an overwhelming majority for years, and could fulfil its "misuion" unmolested. Let us see how it baa "resisted this tendency of power to steal from the many to the few. Com mencing with a secret society under the name of "St. Tammany, or the Columbian Order," the political power of the Demo cratic party in New York has gradually stolen from the many to the few, until it now rests absolutely in the nanas ot a "ring ot less than half a dozen individuals, chief of whom are Peter B. Sweeny and William M. Tweed. No Democrat can be nominated, elected, or appointed to any office, however small, without first getting the oonsent of 'Teter Brains" or "Boss Tweed." Ho often during the past three years has the great Democratic party of Mew York been compelled to witness the humiliating noeo- tacle of a mass meeting of what are called "free and independent voters," assembled in some district or ward, humbly petitioning Mr. Sweeny and Mr. Tweed that they would consent to nominate this or that man for Alderman or Assemblyman? Occasionally some refractory Democrat has the hardihood to run for an office without tne consent of these Moguls of the party, but he rarely suo- ceeds is. being eleoteJ, ana, u ne aoes, be is forever after a marked man, stigmatized as a traitor to bis party, and singled out to be crushed by very means, foul or fair. And not only does this seoret ring of throe or four men rule the Democratio party here with a rod of iron, but it rules the entire city, and administers our munioipal govern ment after the same fashion and with the same personal and selfish ends. It acknow ledges no responsibility to the people, but is entirely above and beyond the people. It refuses to let the people know how muoh of tbelr money it spends, or how it spends it. No citizen can ascertain how many employes tbe city has, what their names are, or how much they get. In a word, our whole muni cipal government, as now administered, is a secret conspiracy to plunder the public, and tax-payers have as little knowledge of what becomes of their money as though it were disbursed by a band of robbers in a cave in Algiers. And this grand achievement of the New York Democracy is a practical illustration of what the World cells the "mission of the Democratic party." To fulfill this "mission" it is only necessary, according to the World, for the party to do all over the country what it does here eschew "afirmative issues," bold no fixed principles, and sell out, as occa sion may require, to the highest bidder. r.TTorr'AN waii Avn titf. nu.ivnti OF TRADE. " I F. om the K. F. World. The expec tation that Russia's attempt to abrogate the treaties of 13."'i might lead to a general European war Las induced some of the political economists of the day to hunt up the statistrcs of our foreign trade for the years oi tne Crimean war, and to demon strate that during that time the balance of trr.de was in our favor; that therefore we were as a nation benefitted by that war, and ought now to rejoice should Russia's demand lead to renewed complications, because they would again inure to our benefit. Not to ppcak of the monstrous doctrine that we can possibly derive a sum total of advantage from a general European war, the argument itself, in so far as based upon the balance of trade theory, is fallacious. No greater ab surdities have ever beon perpetrated in the history of commercial legislation than those based upon this delusive theory, which has not the slightest foundation of reality to htand upon. In the fiipt place the importance of all foreign trjide is constantly aud enormously overrated. The domestic production of the United Mates is now estimated by the best Btatifcticians at 10.000,000.000 per annum, while our import or export trade has never yet materially exceeded $-100,000,000 ia any one year, showing that domestic produc tion exceeds foreign imports t wenty-five fold in numerical importan -e, and that houce a variation of even $100,000,000 in our exports and imports is no indication whatever of our general piospeiity. In the second place, it has yet to be proved that an excess of exports is a thing to be de sired. England, which cannot certainly be quoted as an illustration of an unprofitable commerce, has for the last twenty years im ported every year largely in excess of her ex ports, and has inn up during the last ten years alone what callow "balance of trade" economists would call an unfavorable balance of trade to the extent of X.")0,000,000, or nearly $2,700,000,000 in coin. If such an enormous excess of imports does not ruin England, why should a much more mode rate excess be bo injurious to us, or why should we be bo anxious to produce the re verse condition.'' Ihese whole figures. though valunble in their way for atotintioal purposes, are totally valueless as indications of national prosperity. Primarily every na tion should export in value as much as it im ports. If it carries on both export and im port trade on its own account, as England does almost everywhere, and as we do to some extent, it should import an exoess suffi cient to pay the profits of trade. If it carries on aDy portion of its trade in its own vessels, it should import an additional exoess to pay the freights earned with them. If it owns capital employed abroad, it must bring the interest home in the shape of imports. And if it borrows capital abroad, or foreign capi tal comes to it for investment, that capital must come in the shape of imports and must swell the apparent balance of trade against a country. It is. evident that no statistics can be invented to snow to which of these causes tbe bt lance of trade is due, and that, therefore, the argument based upon it is quite fallacious. The period of the Crimean war is the very pe riod which shouid warn unfledged stastiticians not to meddle with the balanoe of trade. In lK.'ili we were unusually prosperous, and our excess of imports was unusually large; in fact, one of the three largest unfavorable balances for thirty or forty years. In 1854 the unfa vorable balance was smaller, but still heavy. As soou as England felt the strain upon her resources caused by the Crimean war, she sought to collect from all parts of the world all balances due to her, and nota bly from this country. For the first time in a number of years we in 1N." exported more than we imported, and we did so in order to enable England to use all her re sources in fighting Russia. Our merchandise exports were not sufficient to pay what we owed, and we were obliged to drain ourselves of a large amount of specie, losing nearly one hundred and fifty millions in coin in the three years of 18.V, and 18.0. It was this loss of coin in those three years which, in spite of a favorable balanee of trade in each year, brought about the terrific crash of 18."7, when we were totally unable to pay what we owed, and when we were obliged to temporarily defer all foreign payments by a L suspension of specie payments. In the year following, lf.b, by cunt or tne bountiful crops of the previous year, we were enabled to again export more tiian we imported, the balance of trade in our favor (?) that year, which will long be remembered as a year of misery and poverty, being the largest one in the history of this country. It will not be denied by any one that there is a large amount of foreign capital, espe cially English and German, now invested in tniB country, precisely as there was in with the difference that at present the amonnt is probablv tenfold larger than then We have failed to experience the results of 1855 from the present Franco-Prussian war because Germany has not yet begun to feel its eff ects, while England has as yet remained fiee. But in the former case England did not call upon us for remittances until the second year of the war, while the present contest is scarcely four months old, and we may yet have to experience a very serious German drain upon our resources. Should England and Russia be drawn into the strife in addition to the present combatants, a repetition of our experience from 18" to 1858 would be what we ought reasonably to look for an experience surely not to be an tieipated with rejoicing, whatever "balance of trade" etatiatics may bay to the contrary. THE LESSON OF THE ELECTIONS. Film the Cincinnati Gazette. If such an anomaly as a rational Democrat exists, we may remark that no rational Demo crat can extract from the election of this year a calculation that the Democrats oan carry the next Presidential election. They give to signs of a revolution. Nor oan they derive any reasonable hope from differences in the llepublican party; for the differences i.pon questions of political economy are but the healthy processes of the Republican party which keep it in progress; and as to any differences about men, if any one thing has been demonstrated by the history of ihe Republican party, it is the fact that it does not depend on any one man, nor on any set of leaders. It is a Republican org mizaMon, having the liberty and sturdy individi tl iu dtpendence that belong to republicanism, and deriving vigor from the exeroise of these qualities. It may be regarded as settled that no Demo crat tainted with the unfaithful course of that party in the struggle for national preserva tion can bo elected President next time, and that the party which carries this load cannot elect a majority at the next Congressional election. That matter is virtually settled, and the Republican parly is left master of its own destinies and the Democratic party to seek out a new character that may bring it acces sions or allies Tbe New York World recog nises this situation, and in an article applying the lesson of the recent elections, it tries to impref s this fact upon tbe party at large. It holds up the new Democracy as the progres sive Democracy, whoso wisdom is proved by their success in carrying elections, and it ex horts the Democracy of the country t; follow their lead. It describes the Democracy else where as a stagnated Democracy, whose policy has brought, and will continue to bring, defeat. It states that "the Democratic party has lo&t three successive elections by gross mismanogement and glaring mistakes, ' and that "in every one of these the judgment of the New York Democracy was overruled."! Ihe specifications are that they were over ruled by the rejection of Douglas at Charles ton; by the damaging ( Vallaudigham) plat form in 1801; and by forcing the nomina tion in 1808 upon Seymour, who "thought the interests of the party required the nomi nation of Chief Justice Chase, and by put ting him on a platform of a financial policy against which he had recently delivered powerful arguments. Th World says the wisii of the JSew lork Ueruocracy was a can didate that would strengthen the pirty in Pennsylvania and Indiana in the October elections, and it was "an Ohio movement that thrust the nomination on Governor Sey mour, and put the parly in the incongruous attitude of running an anti-greenback candi date on a greeuback platform, and assoaiating an open advocate of Judge Chase on the same ticket with tWe author of a then recent letter in conflict with all Judge Chase's ideas." lo this confession of Democratic follies we may add that Vallandigham, who was in the Tammany Convention the spokesman of th'e Ohio movement for Seymour, has since declared thai the rejection of judge Chase at that time was a blunder. It is our impression that the Enquirer, whose managing proprietor was the main engineer of the Pendleton greenback movement, has made a similar aiausedon. In some recent comments on a statement of Judge Chase's health, we mentioned tht the signs indicated that the Western Democracy were looking to him for a candidate. We have now this statement that the leaders of the New York Democracy wanted Judge Chase, and regard it as gross mismanage ment that prevented him; and the aim of all this Beems to be to show the necessity for nominating Judge Chase next time. We perceive the force of these premises and of the conclusion. No man who carries the burden of the character of the Democratio party in the civil war can be eleoted President during this generation. The World's declara tion is wise, "that the party cannot regain its ascendency in national affairs by attempting to extract nutriment from the husks and chaff of defunct controversies of a past era. But to say that the party has been defeated for a whole decade by gross mismanagement seems to us about as encouraging to future success as the explanation of election defeats which attributes them to apathy and to dissensions. This only brings the question. What caused the apathy and the dissensions ? And so tho question arises, What caused the mismanage ment ? And is the repetition of it in three Presidential conventions a sign of wisdom next time ? May not a devout mind find in this the truth that when the gods desire to destroy folks they sfcrut deprive them of judg ment ? For our part we have an abiding faith in tho Democratic party's lack of political saga city, and we believe it will continue to repeat itself. It is something more than a mere mistake of strategy in a convention. There is beneath this a more profound blunder, in totally misunderstanding the character of the American people. This was shown by the course of the leaders of tbe Northern De mocracy in tho secession war, and by the contrary course of the mass of the people. For Democratic leaders to place a mean esti mate on the popular character is a binder that is akin to a crime. It proves total incapacity for popular leadership. The blunder which concluded that the majority of 'thepeople of tbe North would submit to an appeal from ballots to bullets, and to the dissolution of the nation, has been continually repeated in detail by the Democratio waiting for a popu lar reaction which should undo the work of national preservation. What signs have they given of the capacity to retrieve this blunder? They have at tempted no reformation of character. They are like the traveller who sat down to wait for the river to run by. They are all waiting for the coming reaction. During the? four years of war they were looking for tbe time vthen the soldiers would quit the army in dis gust, when desertion would destroy its ranks, when no more recruits could be had, aud when the Democrats at home would be strong enough to rise and welcome the Confederate armies. Since the war they have been con tinually looking for a popular reaotion against the burdens left by the Rebellion. At any local change they sounded their horn of re surrection. And their attempts at election excitation.were all by appeals to the instincts of knavery, and proposals to degrade the national honor. All this is more than a blunder in campaign tactics. It is a total lack of comprehension of the people they assume to lead. It is worse than a blunder or a crime; it is incompetency. They are still waiting for the American people to fall so low that they will follow those who contemn patriotism and national honor. The Democratio party of the North has had no leaders of capacity since the Southern leaders went into the Rebellion. It has been as prostrate as another organization under absolute personal government, which, as soon as its bead was taken away, fell into anarchy and split up into factions led by charlatans, and which is incapable of generating capable leaders, or of organizing for consistent ection. And what capable Democratio leader can tbe New York Democracy offer? It is confessed that the mismanagement of 1808 was in not taking a oandidaCe frjiu out side the party. This admits that the prty character is the fatal thing. But the charac ter remains the same. And is there any pros pect of bringing the Demoorats to an agree ment upon Mr. Chase in the next conven tion ? And if there were, does the realization that tbe neglect to nominate him then was a blunder prove that it would be a success now? We. appreciate the confession that the De mocratio aspect is hateful to the American Eeople, and the declaration that their greatest lnndf r was in not taking up n candidate whr bad not the taint of the Democratic name; but we see no signs of conditions or of sagi city that promise a change, or that tho Demo cratio party will not -continue to fulfil its destiny by serving as a foil to the Repub lican.
