Great activity is reported as prevailing along

?Senator Aldrich is not unnaturally elated
over the splendid results of tho Rhode Island
election. In a talk with him, printed this morn?
ing, ho points out tho effect of the now Con?
stitutional amendment, which received tho
requisite mimi>er of votes on Wednesday. Thi9
amendment places foreign-born naturalized
citizens on the same plane with nat ive-born as
to suffrage. Mr. Aldrich Rays the Democratic
hopes based on tho enlargement of the suffrage.
aro illusory. There are 23,000 unnaturalized
foreigners in the State, of whom, when they
become citizens, the ...publicans aro quite as
likely as tho Democrat- to get the greater num?
ber. Rhode Island is evidently pretty sure to
remain loyal to its well-established traditions.
Tho talks with Senators Cogpeshall, Russell
and Laughlin, given in our Albany dispatches,
show that thero is some reason to fear that at?
tempts will bo made to amend the Crosby Iligh
License bill when it comes up for passage in
tho Senate. This is to bc deplored. Tho bill
as it now stands is satisfactory to tho pro?
moters of the High-License movement, al?
though not in tbe form in which they hoped to
seo it put on the statute-book. Any further
changes would expose the bill to needless dan?
ger. Thero arc only five weeks more of tho
acsfcion, and the majority in favor of this meas?
ure in the Assembly was so narrow that to
force it to run ihe gauntlet again would be to
make its enactment a matter of doubt. Thero
r*.hould be no changing, amending or revising
at this stage. The votes of seventeen Senators
aro needed to pass the bill, and out of tho
twonty-ono Republicans the required seven?
teen ought to be forthcoming. They will bc
if the demands of enlightened public sentiment
and tho wishes of the great majority of Re?
publicans are lice clod.
The prolonged filibustering in tho House of
Representatives against tho bill to refund tho
direct tax of 18til attracts far more attention
than the measure itself, which seems to be of
little popular interest. Yd a bill proposing to
distribute $17,000,000 among twenty-nine
States and Territories cannot bo deemed an
unimportant measure. This sum was collected
tinder the act of Congress of August 5, 1861,
which authorized a direct tax of $20,000,000.
to bo levied annually upon the real estate of
tho country. Thi*. was one of tho carly ex?
pedients to raise money for tho War. and was
discarded after one year. Under the Consti?
tution, tho tax was, of course, apportioned ac?
cording to population, and seceding States had
Iheir quota marked against them as well as
loyal States. Thc loyal States generally as?
sumed their share and paiel it directly te) the
Government, being allowed a deduction of 15
per cent for doing so. Where this was not
done, as in thc case of Southern States, the
I'nited States Government proceeded against
individuals, when it was able to do so. .-..lil
property, and applied the prot'ooils toward the
State's quota. This was notably the case in
South Carolina. Where States that did not
pay their shaie of the tax have since preferred
claims against the I'nited States, the Federal
Government lias claimed the amount due from
the State under (his tax as an offset.
Tho matter has rested in this shape ever
sine*c the War. to the perplexity of a genera?
tion of Treasury officials. Hero was a tax
which only a portion of the people had paid.
Xo ono proposed to enforeo the collection of
the balance still elite, and yet it must remain on
tho Treasury books a<* a debt. What was more
to tbe point was that the States and Territories
which paid tho tax weie in the position of hav?
ing cheerfully as-uincd their share of a public
burden which other States liad shirked These
latter States were Alabama, Arkansas, Florida,
Geoigia, Louisiana, Mississippi. North Carolina,
South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas and Vir?
ginia. Colorado, then a Territory, the justice
of whose IMMSIIM nt is stoutly disputed, is put
down a few hundred dollars in thc Govern
ment's debt, with Utah and Washington for
larger amounts. The total sum still due the
Government, without interest, is $2,610.314.
Tho sum collected, and which ii is proposed
shall be returned to the States, also without in?
terest, is $17,859,685, of which New-York
State was credited, including the 15 per cent
allowed for collection, with $3,008,918. Tho
bill proposes to cancel the debt of States which
have not paid up. and to refund to Slates which
have done so, endeavoring as nearly as pos?
sible to restore the condition of affairs as it
was before the tax.
This seems a most equitable arrangement.
Such opposition as there was in the Senate came
from three C__SSBS: a few Southern Senators,
who did not want to see so large an appropria?
tion from which the Southern Slates were to
derive little benefit; Western Senators, repre?
senting States tl at wno Territories at the lime
the tax was collected, and whose share a** re
*-jiplenti is smaller than their proportion as tax?
payer; and others who thought that where the
tax wa.s collected from individuals, the Federal
Government should undertake to find the prop-1
er claimants instead of tinning thal duty over
to the State Governments, who might not per?
form it properly. Still there* were- only six
negative votes in the Senate. In the Etouse il
is understood to be sappoited by a majority of
both parties. Hut the number of filibusters i-,
sufficiently lat go. lcd by .Mr. Ui.ckiniidge, of
Arkansas, to prolong the struggle to disgrace

it is a Republican st lu-nie to reduce the sui plus
so that it will not be safe to pass the Mills bill
Many of his follower** aro willing to pass it.
however, if the cotton tax shall bc refunded at
the same time. This amounted to SliH.OOU.OoO.
Consistency is not a Democratic jewel.
Prince liismarck has defied royal petticoat
government in Berlin. He opposes the pro?
jected marriage of Prince Alexander with the
Emperor's second daughter on high grounds of
State policy. PrincCBS Victoria, who is now in
her twenty-third year, has been .apposed to be
lcserved for the hereditary Pi ince of Aiilm.t.
Sho has been guilty of what rigid disciplmaii
aas like Prince Biamarch regard as aa unpar?
donable, indiscretion in prefening the brave,
noble but onfortunate Prince Alexander. Her
mother, the Empress i-* sufficiently sentimental
te lielicve that tl..* most satisfactory royal mar?
riage is a love mate h. She is reported to bs in
sympathy with bel daughter's romantic altai li?
mers, and, moicover. to be supported by Queen
Victoria, wi)., not e.nh made a love match her?
self when she manie, the Prince-Consort, but
who also has a very high icganl for the llat
te-iberg house.
The head of this family is a field marshal in
the Austrian service, who mar lied th'* PriBOBSB
of Ihcttenberg. Ile is the uncle of the reign?
ing Grand Duke of Hesse, who mairied Prin?
cess Alice, one of Queen Victoria's daughters.
His Oldest eon married Prine-ess Victoria of
Hesse, the Queen's gtanddaughter. His third
son, Pi ince Henry, i.s tbs hu*?band of the
Queen's you n gent daughter. Princess Beatrice.
The Queen evidently impressed with the fact
that there cannot be too many Hatt?*nbergs in
the family, i*. uow re ported io be willing to go
to (bo German court and plead in person tho
cause of Prince Alexander aa a suttor for tho
Emperor's daughter. The proposed match la
altogether an English affair, and for thia rea?
son will be very unpopular in Berlin. Prince
Bismarck haa arrayed himself against it, and
threatened to resign if the Royal romanco
mongers peraif-t in carrying lt out. He eon
aidera it a positive affront to Ruseia, since
Prince Alexander, by his courso in Bulgaria,
incurred tho bitter resentment of the Czar. No
sentimental considerations have weight with
this astute statesman. He condemns the pro?
posed marriago on the broad ground that it
would disturb the relations of Germany and
Russia and add a dangerous complication to
the Eastern Question. He will undoubtedly
succeed in postponing the match indefinitely,
if not in breaking it off altogether. The
notoriety given to the affair, however, will not
tend to lessen popular prejudice in Germany
against the Empress on aeeount of her Eng?
lish iden, and associations.
By a singular coincidence Prince Alexander's
downfall has been attributed to another in?
trigue of royal petticoat government. The
Czarina, who is the most charming and am?
bitious Queen in Europe, is believed to have
had a scheme for making her brother, Princo
Waldemar of Denmark, ruler of Mulgaria. In
this intrigue she was supported by her mother,
thc most expert royal match-maker in Eu?
rope. In the stago business of Princo Alex?
ander's reign in Bulgaria thc Czarina's voice
was never heard as prompter, but she is said to
havo meddled persistently in thc negotiations
and to havo been largely reapon-siblo for
Russia's hostility to-shim. She was bent upon
expelling him from the throne in order to mako
room for hor favorite brother. When Princo
Alexander retired from Bulgaria to enjoy in
private life, an Prince Bismarck had facetious?
ly predicted, tho interesting souvenirs and rem?
iniscences of having onee reigned and played
a great part in European affairs. Prince Walde?
mar became a prominent candidate for tho
throne. But State policy based on his own
marriage intervened to upset the plans of the
royal intriguers. He had married an Orleans
Princess, and this made him ineligible in the
judgment of Prince Bism.irc k, who*e advico was
sought by Prince Christian. The German
Chancellor is always unromantic and severely
practical in dealing with Princesses and Em
piesses. A royal matrimonial alliance js with
him one of thc dry details of the business, of
State. _
A caucus of the Republic an Senators has been
called for Monday evening to consider the
lligh-I.icenso bill. We hope to see tho same
wise decision roached as in the Assembly. The

An interesting token of the growth of the
temperance sentiment in Great Britain is fur?
nished by a correspondent of " The St. James's
(iu/ette." He shows that during the past forty
t-cven years the average annual consumption of
tea per capita of the entire population has in?
creased from less than a pound and a quarter to
nearly five pounds, and of cocoa, from about an
ounce and a quarter to nearly half a pound, while
thc use of coffee has fallen off slightly, from seven?
teen ounces to thirteen ounces. The total con?
sumption of these three leading non-alcoholic
drinks has thus increased nearly threefold: the
exact figurers are from 38.08 ounces to 99.04
ounces per capita annually. This may not in?
dicate a fully corresponding decrease in the con?
sumption of strong drink; but it must mean a
considerable decrease, and it proves that the
people arc learning to appreciate the ? cup that
cheers but not inebriates."
Having done Its best to defeat the Republican
candidate for Lieutenant-Governor in Rhode
Island, " The Providence Journal" greet- his re?
election with the remark that the Independent
opposition to him was ? not great." The con?
fession is rather rough on the influence of ? Thc
John If. Wiley, of Buffalo, Den.oera.1 ic State
Committeeman, is reported to have remarked at
the recent meeting: "We arc all for Cleveland
