DEMOCRATS INBORKOWED PLUMAGE.
From the N. Y. Time.
The World flies Into a towering passion at
the bare suggestion that the Democratio
party, by following the lead of Vallandigham
and Adams in their "new departure," would
virtually surrender to the Republicans. Here
is the way it repels the imputation:
'It Is falser than lying to say that the Democratio
5 arty thenby accepts and seeks to win power by the
epubllcan doctrine. No; the Democratic party
says of the Constitution as It Is, no lens than or the
Constitution as It was, that the difference Is as high
as heaven and deep as hell which divides the Re
publican from the Democrat."
This, we suppose, is what the World con
eiders strong writing, but, like most strong
wr.ting, it enly betrays the weakness of the
argumentative resources of the writer. Ac
cordingly, we find in the two columns and a
half of dreary twaddle with whioh the World
labors to sustain the above frantio declara
tion, nothing half bo Btrong as the declara
tion itself. , In spite of its special pleading,
and its profuse extraots from the Constitution
of the United States, the fact remains that
the Democratio party, from the standpoint
of its "new departure," is unable to present
to the country any important principle or
measure of general application to the whole
people which is materially different from
that entertained and advocated by the
Republicans. Great stress is laid upon
the Kn-klnx bill, and even Mr. Adams
is constrained, out of deference te
his Democratio associates, to repeat the stale
elang about the "crowning infamy" of this
measure; but the Ku-klux bill was only ren
dered necessary because the Democratio party
and their allies lately in rebellion refused to
abide by the issues of the war. It is only a
feature of that "hostile vigilance which Mr.
Adams truly says "the people will never re
sign until they know that no one ot their war
trophies is longer disputed.' If the Demo
cratic party is sincere in its "new departure,"
and proposes, in good faith, to "aooept the
situation" and "abide by the issues settled
by the war," there will be no farther need of
the Ku-klux bill, and it will become inopera
tive ana void.
As to the questions of tariff, paper cur
rency, national banks, etc., these are not
distinctive Republican measures. There are
free-trade Republicans and free-trade Demo
crats, but neither the Republican nor the
Democratio party would dare to go to the
people on a free-trade platform pure and
simple, nor would either dare to adopt an ex
clusive metallio currency as a party principle,
or attempt to substitute the old State bank
system in place of the present national banks.
There are, in fact, no really important issues
in which the whole people take an interest
that divide the two parties to-day, exoept
those growing out of the late rebellion; and
if the Democratio party adopts the platform
of vallandigham and Adams, the next Presi
dential eleotion will be a contest not for
measures but for men, not for principles but
for spoils. It will be a virtual surrender by
the Democratio party of all the positions they
have heretofore held, in order that they may
' DO placed in a position where they can com
pete with their opponents in a general
scramble for office. The very words "new
departure ' which the Democrats them
selves give to the movement, imply that
they have abandoned their old line of maroh
and started on a new course, and one need
only look at the finger post whioh they
have marked out for themselves to see that
it points directly te the Republican camp.
lEdeed, the reasons given for a change of
course are a free confession that the people
would not follow the Democrats in the path
they are now pursuing, and that their only
chanoe of obtaining reoruits consists in fol
lowing the track of the Republican party.
But they will be greatly mistaken, we appre
hend, if they imagine that Republicans are
going to desert their own ranks the moment
they see the disorganized Democracy coming
up in the rear. If the contest is to be simply
one of men, no Republican is going to desert
his own leader for any leader that is to be
found in the Demooratio party. They
may adopt our principles, but they
must not expect, just yet, to lead our armies.
They must be content to ride, without asking
to drive. When it comas to men, we entirely
agree with the World that "the differenoa is
high as Heaven and deep as Hell whioh
divides the Republican from the Demoorat."
The people have experienced this difference
in times past. It was fully illustrated in the
contrast between last Democratio President,
Buchanan, and the first Republican Presi
dent, Lincoln. We have striking examples
of it in this city the headquarters of modern
Democracy as, for instance, the difference
between "Boss" Tweed or "Dick" Connolly
and a Republican, or any other honest man.
REVENGE OF OUTRAGED
From the A". Y. Sun.
Vice-rresident uouax was seized with ver
tigo on Monday in the Senate Chamber,
owing, as it was said, to the heat and bad air
of the room. But as itoue of the other occu
pants of the same room were similarly
affected, the cause of his Biokness must also
be attributed in great measure to the previous
condition of his health. Had he not been
already prepared for the seizure, the cironm
stances in which he was placed would not
have occasioned it.
Mr. Colfax, though strictly abstinent from
alcoholio drinks, has long been a great drinker
of tea and conee, and an excessive smoker of
' tobacco. The morning of the day on which
he was prostrated he bad smoked nve or six
strong cigars on an almost empty stomach,
and had been incessantly busy writing letters.
The treacherous ally on whioh he had hitherto
relied to supply a physical energy which had
been denied him gave way at last, and out
' raged nature took her revenge. Mr. Colfax
falling from his chair is as awful a warning
against th excessive use of narcotics as a
, drunkard with the delirium tremens is against
the excessive use of alcohol.
It is to be hoped that the press and the
pulpit, and every one who has the responsi
bility resting upon him of directing the
opinions or conduct ot others, will not fail to
Serceive and insist upon the lesson which
Ir. Colfax's unhappy casa teaches. There is
plenty of denunciation of drunkenness, bat
against the abuse of narcotics far too little is
aid. Let our youth, especially, who think it
so fine to smoke big cigars and tos off their
. cups of atrong coffee, consider what they are
-.' preparing for themselves, and le im that it is
! i, their duty to be temperate in all things, wad
not in the use of alcoholio drinks alone.
- Let, too, the preachers of total abBtineuoe
from alcohol learn that the objects of their
', reprobation are not the ofclr ones who da.
. serve it, and give heed to the fact that the
, first remedy adu-ttred to Hi. Colfax wju
, i lasa of brandy. ,
OUR JURY SYSTEM.
From the A". Y, Standard.
We are always reluctant to criticize venera
ble errors. It looks like presumption and is
revolutionary in tendency. To question "the
visdom of the fathers is a young American
privilege, however, of which we hesitatingly
nerehas the Poster case been dragging
itself along through a wearisome week, just
because the superior intelligence of our otti-
zens nnnts them ior jurors, xuis is uigu
compliment to our citizens, but a satire upon
the administration of justice. We have
already ventured to suggest that the fact of
having read the newspapers was not suffi
cient disquaimoaiion. mere is one otner
method, perhaps, of avoiding the difficul
ties which beset our criminal lawyers, if
this one will not do; and they still desire
jurymen that have not entertained either
"ideas, impressions, or opinions upon the
subject. We can borrow a remedy from
China. We have already borrowed a good
many things from the Celestial Empire.
Without her we should never have had our
two "nysons," printing, fire-crackers, and a
"Heathen Chinee," and doubtless we may
now trespass upon her generosity for an
example. In China the administration of
local or provincial government and law is an
itinerant one. No mandarin, from the
lowest to the highest, can remain but a short
time in one position. He is kept moving
lest he become too well acquainted with the
affairs which he is expected to administer.
Likewise, no mandarin is allowed to govern
in his own native section. Indeed, the Chi
nese have carried this principle so far that
tbey have borrowed an imperial dynasty from
Why not ingraft this principle upon our
system of trial by jury? When counsel are
pressed for a lack of ignorance they might
send to another State for jury material. The
remoteness of the locality whence the jurors
are drawn might increase or diminish in pro
portion to the more or less aggravated nature
of the crime. In a moderate case we might
Bend into an adjoining county, or in an atro
cious one, like that of Foster, some distant
State might honor our draft. It should be
provided, however, that no counsel should
be compelled to accept juries from .New Jer
sey, or Colorado, or, perhaps, California, on
account of the peculiar prejudice that exists
in those localities in respect to thieves and
In this way we might get jurors who had
not heard of the special case under considera
tion, yet who bad ordinary intelligence upon
general subjects. We could point to other
possible advantages of a minor character,
however that might result from this amend
ment to our jury law. The lion of Puritan
ism and the lamb of toleration, by a free in
terchange of jurors, might arrive at a health
ful and common conclusion upon the subject
of crime and its punishment. Chicago and
Boston, New York and San Francisco, might
eliiuate in this way; and from crime to "mar
riage and divorce and other grave and per
plexing social problems, the step would be
an easy one, With a community of senti
ment thua brought about between the ex
tremes of our country, we should soon have
a state of things full of millennial sugges
beriously, however, in our present jury
system, as applied to civil practice, there
are some detects that demand a "remedy.
The "right of trial by jury," secured by the
Magna Chart a in England, and adopted in our
own Constitution, is undoubtedly a great
right. And it is very well that a person to be
tried for crime should have every safeguard
thrown around his possible innooenoe. Oar
jurisprudence assumes that a man is innocent
till proven guilty. But in civil actions, where
the contest is between man and man, and not
between one man and the wholo people, it
seems proper that the parties should
meet upon more equal footing than
at present. A plaintiff comes into court
under great disadvantages. No matter how
great the merit of his case, or the degree of
his injury, he has to gain the positive judg
ment in bis behalf of twelve men. If his op
ponent gets one dissenting voice, the plain
tiff s case eoea overboard, it his cause were
tried before a bench of judges, he would re
quire only a majority. But with a jury of lay
men, taken trom "various stations 01 me, ne
requires a unanimous verdiot to succeed. The
plaintiff has but one chance to eleven, tie
runs the gauntlet, and has overwhelming
odds against him. No mistake of a jury can
be remedied on appeal. The erroneous deoi.
Bion of a judge is subject to appeal and re'
ver6al. A single juror may be controlled by
false sophistry or evil motives, and there is
The jury law was founded apparently upon
the theory that all men are sensible as well as
Lonest, and that they reason alike, isat it is
a common remark among lawyers that an
average jury, in an ordinary oase, is con
trolled in its decision by one or two of its
members. An able sophist, by false reason
ing, may bring over a whole jury to concur
rence. Or, on the other hand, narrow
minded men may form an opinion, adhere to
it with unyielding tenacity, and defeat the
ends of justice. Generally a majority adopt
a certain view of the case, and one by one
the dissenters come over, till at last there is
an agreement and a verdict. It is often a
Question of mere obstinacy and endurance,
There is one right left to the plaintiff la
boring against so many odds, whioh is a par
tial relief to the hardships of the law. If
one iurv fail to agree, he can, after the nsual
delay, go into court and try it again. If he
believes that the first suit was lost by reason
of dishonesty in the jury, he may encourage
himself with the proverb that "lightning
never strikes twice in the same Bpot" that
is, until he prove whether it applies to his
The remedy which we propose for all
this is, to make a specified majority say
two-thirds sufficient to render a verdict.
Litigation will be full enough of uncertain
ties, even with this amendment, and, while
lawyers will still have enough to do, the
change will greatly benefit the peaple.
TnE LATE BOILER EXPLOSION.
From, the Baltimore Am.tr ican.
. The bursting of the boiler of the Alpha
Bteam fire engine on Monday morning, and
the ead calamity that overtook Mr. Weaver,
has once more aroused the people of the city
te a sense of the danger to which they are
constantly exposed by the use of steam boil
ers. They are a necessity to civilization, with
out which the great industries 01 the age can
not be prosecuted; but a certain percent
of riHk appears to inevitably attend their me,
acainst which no ordinary prudence can pro
vide. The whole theory of boiler explosions
appears to be involved in inexplicable mys
terv. In the late celebrated case pf Pi ad ell
against Stirling & Ahrens, tried in the Supe
rior Court of Baltimore city, before J adie
Dobbin, intelligent engineer were examined
as experts, and they differed greatly in their
opinions and conclusions as to the immediate
cauaes tht indue ih rupture cf a boil jr.
Captain. Wheeler, an engineer in the Unite!
States revenue service, cave the gene
rally received theory, but other engineers
of equal eminenoe differed from his
conclusions in toto, A synopsis of Captain
Wheeler's testimony appeared in the Ameri
can at the time it was given, and embodied
about all that the experiments of men of
science have given ns on this subject. It
amounted about to this: When the water is
allowed to get low in the boiler the plates
become red hot, and the tensile power
of the iron is greatly diminished. When the
cold water is turned into the boiler, the in
stant it touches the heated snrfaoe it assumes
the spheroidal state, and dances about in
little globules until the temperature is re
duced to a certain degree, when Suddenly the
globules burst and the whole mass is con
verted into super-heated Bteam, the expan
sive power of which is immense. The sud
den impingement of this mass of steam
upon the plates, already weakened by over
heating, fractures the iron, and an explosion
is the result. This is a plain statement of the
principal points, without any pretension to
Now, if the Alpha was in any way delayed,
and did not get to work for a considerable
time after her furnace was kindled, and if she
exploded a few minutes after her feed pipe
was attached to the water plug, the rupture
of her boiler can be acoounted for on the
above theory. We are not advised as to
these fact, but they will doubtless be
developed before the Coroner's jury.
If it should appear from the testi
timocy. however, that she bad been at work,
Bay, ten or fifteen minutes before the explo
sion, then the caue will have to be looked
for in some defect in the construction of the
boiler, or some weakening of important parts
by long use.
Upon the first hypothesis the explosion
would appear to strengthen the generally re
ceived theory. Abe boiler is hlled with water
when it starts from the engine-house; steam
is generated until a certain pressure is
reached, and then it escapes. In the mean
time, the water becomes low in the boiler,
end the interior plates become very hot.
When the sucking tube is attached to the
plug the cold water is poured down into the
cavity between the exterior and interior
shells; the plates of the interior shell next
the fire are very hot, their tensile power
greatly diminished, and when the sudden
burst of super-heated steam comes against
the plates they are ruptured
The fact that the screw bolts were pulled
from the holes without an apparent breaking
of the threads, and that two sides of the in
terior shell are rolled up without any f raoture
of the iron except where the main rupture is,
would seem to indicate that the plate was very
Of all boilers those attached to steam fire
engines ought to be constructed and handled
with the greatest care. Every time they are
put in action a great crowd gathers around
them, and an explosion puts many lives in
peril. In this case it seems marvellous that
only one man was killed.
THE AMERICAN NOVEL.
From the AT. Y. Tribune.
Mr. Anthony Trollope has announced his
intention of coming to the United States, in
order to make new studies of character for a
forthcoming novel, which is but a fair warn
ing to each of his hospitable entertainers to
retrain from indulging in any of our inera
dicable national habits while Mr. Trollope's
keen eye is upon him aoross the table. For
the American gentleman, Mr. Trollope has
already noted in one of his books, rises to
'orate between each mouthful of potato,
and squirts tobaooo-jaioe between eaoh gla.HH
of champagne. The American young lady.
even when she is possessed of money and
culture sufficient to entitle her to marry into
the British peerage, cannot conquer her
habits of "orating also, and addressing her
lady friends familiarly as "You ass.
Can we not convince this acute ob
server of character that there are exceptions
among us to even these general rules? We
wait with anxiety the result of Mr. Trollope's
adventure into a new world. Brother Jona
than has come to be a favorite figure in for
eign novels and plays of late. His likeness is
easily taken, the features being so few and
marked. He is of necessity either the well-
known lean Sam Slick, with his trowsers
half-way up his leg and jaok-knife in hand, or
Slick in middle age, grown rioh and a Con
gressman, dangling ponderous seals over a
paunchy black satin waistcoat, but still ad
hering (as all Americans will) to his "I
swow, and "Da tell, and yl vum to man.
"An Americon novel, we are informed by
the Saturday Review and other satisfactory
English authorities, "is an impossibility.
All men in that land of progress are alike;
everybody wears the same clothes, talks the
same dialect, and rides in the same cars.
We might ignorantly have fancied that an
aocretion of people from every country under
heaven, brought nnder new influences in a
sweep of continent bo broad that England
would form but one of the counties in a
Western State, might present some dramatio
or picturesque points. But it appears we
are mistaken. The old typical blick,
like Aaron's serpent, still swal
lows all the test. "There is not
to be found," we are assured, "that range of
caste and charaoterand incidentwhioh British
sooiety offers, and which re portrayed in
Trollope's novels. The only opening for fic
tion in America is in the class of didaotio tales
which dwell upon the miseries of mill-hands
and miners." Every view of the subject,
therefore, appears to be grave, and depressing
te our national literary ambition. Seriously,
the excess of material lying on the surface
of society, which awaits the hand of the
artist in this country, is not available to a
workman like Trollope, from the very glaring
contrasts of light and shadow, and the variety
of character, requiring bolder and more ef
fective treatment than he is able to give.
The charm of his books lies in the fact that
he knows but half-a-dozen characters, but
knows them thoroughly, and paints them
over and over again in each new novel with
Flemish minuteness. A cursory, swift glanoe
over this country, with the notes he will take
in the cars, or at Washington and New York
dinner-tables, will hardly enable him to re
produce in American costume his bluff York
shire squire, his natty and vioious young
man, and sweet, obstinate young woman,
clinging desperately to her one sensual idea
It will be better for American fiction, how.
ever, when it, measurably at least, adopts
the Trollope school of art; when the novelist,
instead of nsinc: bis dramatis personm as
characterless puppets to embody or preach
his favorite dogmas, or harrow the reader's
soul by mysteries and murders most foul,
simply contents himself with photographing
the people and scenes about him. Mere re
production is certainly legitimate art, if not
the highest; and it assuredly is the most suc
cessful. What service Holmes has rendered
in this way to New England, Bayard Taylor
has eiven to Pennsylvania, Harta to Call
fornia. and De Forest, almost unnoticed, is
now bringing tu Uo boatl it
before our recollection with a few powerful
but inimitable touohes. But these attempts
are but few and meagre when we remember
the great unpictured range of character and
incident which yet awaits the limner's hand
m the older, more retired regions of the
country, where sooiety has bad time and soli
tude to crystallize into unusual and obstinate
forms. But the artist who will develop these
must be a man who has grown with and out
of them; not a foreigner, posting express from

This machine is entirely different irooi the old
tit vie Beer Pump. It performs Its own work, and
requires no labor. The liquors are forced np from
the cellar to the bar-room by means of a pressure of
air made by force oi water, ana can do drawn just
as clear as directly from the barrel.
Among the many advantages claimed for this
machine are, that the beer or ale never becomes
flat, and can be drawn as cold as Ice water with very
small expense of ice.
The Apparatus can always oe seen at my place in
operation, or at any of the principal soioons in this
city. 0 6 stuthl2f
