which tha young and exultant State of Col?
orado m inls out, illustrates the rapidity of
growth in thc Far West. A State which has
merely a Biifticient population to entitle it to
admission into the Union, and records in the
past jeaf the birth of new towns in
every county, an increase in its silver
yield from $0,000,000 to $19,000,000, the
building of moro than 800 miles of tele*
graph linea with some railroad building, iesl
eatate transactiopa in Denver alone of nearly
93,000.000, with the erection in that city of
more than 400 brick and stone buildings,
ooeting over $2,200,000?a Uiree-year-old
State which can show all this haa some rigl t
to boast itself; and it must be admitted that
the right is not neglected.
The simple ceremony with which the Oov
Sraors of New-York are inaugurated was reu
ered yesterday even more sternly republican
than Qaualby Go vern ur Cornell's refusal to accent
any military escort to tbe Capitol. No one who
wHanni yesterday's brief oath-taking could
have felt that it lost anything in dignity by
this omission. Tbe most striking feature of
the fifteen*miuute ceremony which formally
opened tbe term of Governor Cornell, was the
eloquent tribute paid by him to his predecessor
in office. It haa not always happened tbat
neb generous words have passed between
Qcrver-ora of opposite polities, especially when
they i.ave been ao lately rivals at the polia.
The speeches of both Governors, brief aa they

Mich corrections can extend; or, "i. not tin ir

"allow Hied correct.mis at their option f"
lbrc is thu basis of the whole dispute. But
this question the Governor declines lo put.
He declines to pnt any question tn hst an ti illy
like it. He studiously avoids asking, in any
shape, about thc right to corral returns, nnd
confines himself, all through bis twelve que**
lions, to Inquiries as to tin strict legal author?
ity of tlu* canvassers t< .jut returns ou ac?
count ot val ions informalities?au authority
which in most of the instances cited nobody
has attempted to dispute. Tin* difference t>e
tv.cc'i the two schedules can be expressed in
a few wolds: Mr. Mon ill proposed to inquire
whether it was the privilege nnd duty of the
Governor and Council lo permit thc correction
of technical defcetsin the rel in ns so as to give
elicit to the conceded result ol thc voling;
Governor Garcelon, on the contrary, inquires
whether by a stnct construction of the law he
has the power?omitting all consideration of
thc moral right?to do S- * the reverse ol this,
and avail himself of technical irregularities to
nullify the result of thc voting. Nobody asked
him to put questions of this prcpostcr his char?
It is just as well for the Republicans to look
at Hie situation courageously aud calmly.
Tiny have be*n made the victims of a stu?
pendous political swindle, aud the nen wLo
planned it are resolved to cany it out to the
very end. Protests are of no use. Exposure,
will not shame the wrong-doers ; they made up
their minds to. thnt before they began, and
they are not to be turned from tLeir pur?
pose by ft.r of public opinion, or by
care for tbe ultimate consequence* of
such a piece of rascality. They have
pluced themselves, by a series of elaborate
tricks, in position to steal a State, and, hap?
pen what may, they mean tc steal it. They
know very well that the .^Republican party is
too sensible and too nali-iotic to follow the
precedent which so many Democratic commu?
nities have established at the South, and re?
sist by force of arms tbe action of the civil
authorities. Our remedy must be sought bv
other mean*, and for the present, we fear, in
other States. We can have no better argu?
ment for the Republican patty in future elec?
tions than this exhibition of Democratic con?
tempt for popular sovereignty and a I ree bal?
lot. There is likely to be no doubt Ul State
at thc North after this.
POLITICAL ETHICS IN MAINE.
Last September the people of Maine, in thc
exercise of their undoubted right, and im?
pelled, it must be presumed, by a sense of
civic duty, nave an orderly expression of their
will on certain questions pf public policy in
tbe manner by law provided. Governor
Qaroelon and bis Council have undertaken to
carry through a scheme which nnlllfi-s tbe
recorded decision of tbe people, falsifies tbe
expression of their will, and perverts the
very machinery devised for determining
with unquestioned accuracy Just what the
popular verdict may he, and for executing
that verdict when ascertained with absolute
certainty, into an engine for ina enforcement
if measures wli-ili Ihe p ";.! li v ? ?'''?

people have formally rejected, "los i*

and it ls in the light of thia, th.t Governor

is doing this in thc interest and under the

I lo head oil the Havarti " bonni," which de*
; lends for Mires, upon ii talking M.-.sMon,
j with financial ipie-lio;,s at the front, ami Mi.
Havan!V leiral-tender resolutions for text and

I deepi'r scrutiny into Speaker Randall's
motives, allege that In hus an ulterior selfish
pin po-c ; that he fonsie* Mr. I'ilden's dt iel
before the Natioual Goiivention, but has the
sag.ii ny to see also (hat. defeated or Hot, Mi.
Tilden will name the candidate, mid timi *
will he no small addition to thc capital ol
any aspirant to lie the h corni choice ol
Giamercy Tink. We obaerve also thal Sena*
tor Eaton, of Connecticut, luis recently ex?
pressed thc opinion witta great confidence?
nnd Unit gentleman is nothing if not cou*
-dent?that Congreaa will adopt the Tilden*
Randall policy; puss the appropriations ni
adjourn. Very obviously the wish is in this
case father to the thought.
Yet, with all due dclerence to the opinions
of these statesmen, we take leave to put on
record the prediction that they will not confine
their action to the appropriation bills, but that
they will go off into debate of all sorta, and
very largely into President making; tliRt
they will repeat all their old follies and pcr
bai*s add some new ones: that they will be In
session until the bot weather drives them home;
and that instead of breaking up early
feeling safe, they will stay late and go off
fecltug sorry. They are like the inveterate
gamblers wbo never can set back their chaim
when tbey aro ahead or even with the game.
It isa singular circumstance tbat the strongest
mau in the party to-day is the only leader of
them all who has the sagacity, shrewdness and
self-control to hold his tongue. And it hi
worthy of note that his strength lies m this,
and this only. For ho certainly hun no per?
sonal popularity. His nearest friends say ho
is cold and unsympathetic and selfish,
nnd his enemies can lind no epithet
too coarse to apply to him. His position
in the party is unique. No other man in that
or auy other party was ever so universally dj*
liked ut thu same time that he sftiod among
Hie foremost candidates for its highest honor.
It is because he holds his tongue when there
is a temptation to talk which Ut* men could
resist. They say " Uncle .iiiumy is very sly,
" He knows wba* he is about, and ho docs not
" give anything away." It is the still, sly man
that arouses the fears of his rivals and ex?
cites the curiosity of the crowd. And still
they can't imitate him. Nearly all their candi?
dates hare talked t_enuelves out of the race;
and -sn-oar Bayard, whose "boom" really
contained some promise In it at one time,
learning nothing from tbe fate of Thurman
and Hendricks Md tho nat, and apparently
unable to profit by tbe example of reticence
at Gramerey Park, la ll a fair way to follow
thea. None of thain except Tilden seems to
i - *'. ir imrh'v tha r,tct fruit the party it
i ssenti Uv incoherent, and that it is impossible

TUE RIVAL CANAL PROJECTS.
The last unuiber of Ferdinand de Lesseps's Dnl

Lesseps's theory that the Nicaragua route is im
practicable lur a ship canal booause the region it

ibu locality of tbirty-cigln, volcanoos In the country
skirting tbe Pacitio Coast between tbesouthern

disposed to raise a benevolent subscription for tbe
purpose of developing tin' Republic- of Nicaragua,
by furnishing her with a fre.b-water canal
far small boats, will go ahead witb their
amiable design. The opening of suoh a canal would,
U tbiiiss, or pretends to think, ba a positive benefit
to M. de Lesseps's scheme. Its failure to afford safe

Ihe advocates of tho Nicaru.ua mute hnve not

shocks. The question is too important to bc puascd
over iu -.iletii'i-. At present it must be admitted
that in tbo rivalry between thc two canal oroji rts
the Panama scheme has got the start. De Losseps
is already upon tho Isthmus with his engineers
ami ?Uliman, while the Nicaragua people have
done nothing but identify their enterprise so com?
pletely with General Grant that it cannot got on
without his help. The ?-?President, meanwhile,
ls in no burry to say whether he will take hold of it
or not, nnd has gone off to Cuba leaving the un?

Thc obi fashion of " calling " is not yet eutirely
