SPIRIT OF THE rRES3. EDITORIAL OPINIONS OF TBS LEADING J0TTBNAL8 UPON CTJBRENT TOPICS COMPILED KVKBT DAT FOB THE ETENINO TELEGBAPH. 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. THE REVENGE OF OUTRAGED TURE. NA- 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 avail ourselves. 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 Tartary. 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 murderers. 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 tions. 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 no redress. 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 case. 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 scientific accuracy. 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 hot. 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 of love. 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 jMew iotk to New Orleans making (.ketones on bis thumb-nail of scenery and character for futnre reference.
