The Itepubllcnn I'nrtv ntid llie ApproachInn
Stnto Elections.
Tho republicans ot this Commonwealth moot
in State Convention nt Hyracuso to-morrow for
tho purpo-u of nominating a State ticket and
platform. From (ho manifest design of the
p rtv leaders in (lit Consti'u ional Convention
to put off Iho tost question of negro suffr.'igo till
n-'xi spring we gue-o that Mii< Syracuse assemblage
will also postpone* (h'.s issue to a more
convenient season. That tho party loaders
and m lingers throughout tho country are
alarmed in reference to the approaching clec
lions in Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Now York,
cannot to doubted. Their apprehensions are
betrayed in thoir explanations of the late results
in California and Maine, and in their appeals
lo each other and their followers everywhere
io east aside all personal disputes and all side
issues, in order to present a solid an l unbroken
front against tho advancing columns of the
enemy. The Times of this city, which, since its
daring adventure into the Philadelphia Johnson
Convention, has been on the back track to the
radical camp, (insures its readers that the late
elections furn'sh no ovideuce of a political
reaction; that no siens of such a thing can l>e
found anywhere; Hint (he republican lines
remain intact and unshaken; but still it
appears there is danger from extraneous i-sir s,
and that the republican rnuP not suppose that
the power which they hold ctu be prolonged
without nn effort.
Now, we hold the ground thai the elections
of this year, beginning with that, of Connecticut,
indicate that tho tide is on the turn, that
in last year's elections tho republican party
reached their topmost hi^li wator mark, and that
in abandoning the sound and pooular plaliorins
upon which those elections were carried they
arc nil adrift. If they flat! their new ultimatum
of univer.-nl negro suffrage uphill work,
even in Ohio, and if t'e y lied it convenient to
evade this question for tho present in New
York, it i> be tiuse thoy aro losing the public
confidence in their l.ot" d -parlures from tho
line of policy laid before the people, ami approved
by tho people, from Maine to California,
In last year's elections, and with an emphasis
unparalleled in our political contests. A?,
liowevcr, poor Pierce and the democrndc psrty
were curled away to destruction l>y their
vanity and folly in consequent of their great
triumph of 1852, so the republicans appear to
have concluded from their successes of IS'JG
that their power had become too great to be
disputed and that they could do anything that
pleased them.
A tew little sklrmhehoo liaro served not only
to remove tlds vain conceit, but to satisfy tho
party lead -rs that us matters now stand before
ill people there is no relian?v to bo planed n
last year's republican majorities of Aflc.-n,
twenty, thirty, forty and flfiy thou ;and, since,
by deivult, if you nl~t\v, a California majority
o< twenty thou*ind has b en fi-ii.tevd away,
.m 1 a mijority in Maine has be >n re luce I from
twenty-seven thousand to e'even thousand, on
c 1 irge total vote, in a sin do year. Wo hold
tha' such results on both sties of the Continent
a' the natno time indicate llio oxis-etice ol some
general and pervading causes of ropu<>licati
apathy an I demoralisation, aud n general reaction
in the drift of public opinion which for shadows
llio near approach of a groat political
Personal quarrels and jealousies, restrictive
liquor laws and Sttinl iy prohibitions of cider
an 1 lager beer, will not serve n? explanations
of these late republican loss >s; for it
is apparent that the same apathy prevails
in tho party ranks in Pennsylvania
and everywhere olse that lias boon developed
from Connecticut to Maryland. The
true explanation lies in the departure of Congress
from the platform of Southern reconstrnct
on submitted to and approved by the Northern
Slates, an l in the subst'tution of the extreme
radical programme of universal n gro
sufTYago and negro supremacy in tho South.
Hence the radical lute and cry of impeachment
a ainst Andrew Johnson meets with no encouraging
responses from the rank and file of
the republican party; and hence the radical
design of worrying General CIrint out of
Johnson's Cabinet has Ignnlly failed. Southern
reconstruction, it is seen, under the present
laws of Congress, is sure to place the control of
ton or eleven Of the Southern States In the
hands of the ignorant and credulous blacks
who but yesterday were released from the
darkness and degradation of Southern slavery.
Nam >.11y enough, thinking men, in looking lo
t' ? probable conscquonces of this startling revision
of our political system, recoil from the
thrcatenol dan er. Herein, wo contend, lies
the secret of this reaction against the party in
power ; and from Pennsylvania an I Ohio wo
ox; oet in Octeb r s iw evidoneo upon the
ubject which will s.%?i<f,- Cong ess Itself that,

TheMov*c'i> financial question appears to
li? ns nit to bo!vc as lias been tbo revolutionary
problem. Tito - latter, happily, lias
reaebel daylight, anl li^re ia hopo ot peace.
StiS 1, there is much depending upon the ability
of tbo Mexican* to support themselves until
suoh a time as their financial system, turned
into vigorous channels, will give them suflioiont
funds to moot t'10 exp'ndlurres of the government.
Ti.4 pos:ntf* 2f ^-lr
day is, financially, elm i'-r to 7 ;it it was just
previous to the allied invasion. At vi,Qt time,
so exhtiumve had been the rule of Sip ditf rftii
parlies in power, there v/as absolutely noth'ng
loft with which t^ carry on the government,
from clay to day. Of the revenues roceived
upon French imports but eight per cent was
available for government use; wbilo upon
English imports all but Iwcnty-flve per cent
had b'?cn plodged for payments to foreign
bondholders. Tho30 pledges still remain,
an I Mexico c.-m?* Into bor new lito sod l!ud
with a pcore of treaties which liamyr her exchequer.
Efforts have alrondy .1 oen msdo with our
Congress, by those inte osted in restoring tho
Mexican financed .to a healthy condi ion, to
have us guarantee a Mexican loan of fifty millions
of dollars. No diroct application lias
beon made to ua for aid by the Mexican goverr.mout;
but tho parties in'oresled fancy tlid
we, Dun Qu'xotc like, are will.ug, in o ir reckless
ex'rav gance, lo look about t e world for
opporiuuit es to do bai'.Io for o'hors and prop
(hem ii |> by an oxtrt issue of gro -ubneks. ThoMexicans
nev. r coked us for money ovon in
the darkest days of (heir misfortune even
when their govo.anient was driven to our llio
(Jrai.de f oati?r. Wo can rc.rccly in di-ni'y
proffer thorn a service which (i.ey refuse to ask
from us, and which, w re we to offer, they
might rcjoc*. In a practical view of tho question
it would be fol'y for the M xioans to
saddle themselves with a debt lo the United
States, for of the proposed amount (hey would
probably uot r.oeive more than twenty
millions. It is well known that of
the fifteen millions which Mexico was to
receive for tho Cal fornia and Arizona purcha-o,
not move (h n live inill.ons ever reached
the Mexican Treasury.
Were wo to pour into Mexico (he results of a
fifty million loan, it would bo !ho worst thing
wo could do for our republican neighbor. The
money would not 1 si two years, and at the
end of tlmt time what would be the support of
a people who had beon taught that -they must
not look to their own resources, but to foreign
aid, to maintain their government ? If they
iravo not the elements within themselves to
regenerate their government financially, then j
thoy arc a people al-ealy pa it resuscitation ;
aii'l whatever money wo might lend to them
would only bo the first st p towards taking
possession of their country. The guarantee of
a fifty million loau by out Congress mea is
additional corruption at Washington an l the
annexation of Mexico.
We Lave a great iutcr. st In tiio prosperity of i
Mexico, for we ar so closely linked with hor I
geographically that mnoh of our future progress
depends upon her advancement Uonco
it Is unwise lor us to do any hing which will
retard Lor bom soeking wiiiim herself the
means of national salvr.tion. That she possesses
nil th elements for solfsrestoratlon there
is no question. She has them, too, in at least
equal ratio with llio United Slates, when considering
the relative population of the two
countries. The Mexican silver minoa alone
li tvo yielded, through the worst wars, not less
than thirty-five millions annually. Upon this
product they reap a yearly rm etmo of tivo per
cent for export duly. Th s is the ouiy industry
through ail the Mexican trouhi-w which has |
rem lined untouched. Tiiey have wisely saved

To'hia we may ad.I acknowledged capitalised
claims ant unpaid iuteres1, which swells
ihe told l> $91,932,175. Adding to this amount
the claims which e*is< iu the United Slates,and
it may be said that the Mexican foreign debt
to-day is about one hundred million dollars.
The war claims of Frsuco wo do not tako into
consideration. Mexico Las swn-n to iuakowar
for a lrin lro<l years rather than pay them. As
regards tho English debt, Mexico yearly pays
the interest through Hellish peril iy; for tho
English men-of-war annually smuggl Irom the
Mexican Pacific coast amounts of silver wh^ch
h ive in niugle instances reached fire millions
of dollars?as witness tho case of tho British
man-of-war Calypso a fow years since.
The true way for Mexico to set'.lo her financial
question is to appoint some able financial
agent to purchase her bonds at a low figure,
and for these issue a consolidated bond, the
interest upon which will Le guaranteed by Lor
customs revenues. The whole Mexican debt
could be bought up to-day for twenty millions
of dollars, while Mexico could readily pay
the interest on two hundred millions of dollars
and not feel it; of course, providing that h.-r
finances are well m inaged. As a guarantee of
their good management, the Custom Houses
should each receive a rupervisor to attend to
the interests of the bond holders until the
country becomes thoroughly settled. Tbo
internal custom houses, which weigh liko a
curse upon Mexican progress, should at once
bo abo'ished ; ur.d for the support of the State
governments a direct tax upon real estate
should bo imposed. This has never yet been
done, although tho Mexican constitution of
1857 provides for tho forinor.
Mexico Is abler to-day to support fior debt
than is tho United Stat a. She has element* ol
wealth within her terri<ory which equal if not
surpass our own. A slaMo government,"sand a
wise administration of her financial system,
will soon free her from all incumbrances. The
problem can bo boot solved by her own state*
men. If she, directly or indirectly, looits tt
the United Stab s for support, it Is tho best
evhl mce of the inability ol bar pec plo to mak<
use of the elem mts of prosp rity which na'.un
has placed in their hand*, and it be >kens

The thorough demoralization of the radicals
appear* nowhere in a clearer or more ridiculous
l ght than in too present position of our
State Convention. This wonderful bo ty has
tinkered away all summer at a constitution,
and it has one, at last, nearly complete. The
Conven'ion was a radical machine, and it made ,
the constitution, of ooarso, in the rad.cal taste,
hlling it with all the extravagances of tht)
ultra leaders, and baeditrj not at nil thg practical
reqnirem n;a of our praciiccl people. It
is easy to un.le: stand how thoy cartel0 do
this. had turned the heads of the
republicans. At The commencement of the
w ar this republ cad party seemed to the people
the one most idon.ifl J jvith '.he nationaicau.se,
and the m sses therefore rallied to it to save
the country. People did not like the par y
altogether, and did not like the men of which
it was to some ext *nt made up ; but they overlooked
minor points, with greater ones at
si ike, and joined h in is round this party as a
working organ isation to aavo the Union.
Hones it b 'Caaio groat It behaved i.self
well tor awiiile, and the people began to
respect it They oven began to listen
with some p i.n e to tha cxlravttgauces
of the wilder lead era. The rebellion
was put down nd the republican parly
was disposed to bo moderate i i triumph.
1 ho people like I this also. -Republicans put
Ibnv.rd tho wiso amendment to the eem'itution,
nd the people gave il their suffrages
w 111 what almost seemed unanimity. Iicre the
republican leaders began :o lose themselves.
Tliey did not understand this triumph. They
supposed tb it they we o the nation; that they
own d in fco simplo all the magnificent vole
o:i which thoy carried the country; that they
could do what they pleased, and owed 110
re poet whatever to ihc p -ople. 80 each leader
fe I to saddling tho party with somo vanity
hi-* own?0:10 with prohibi ory tariff, ano
with compulsory temperance, a third with suffrage
for women, while all tho old abolition,
nig rer worshipping clique clamored that tho
only thing want.ng for the millennium was to
give votes to tha Southern niggers and tako
thjin nw.17 from the Southern white moo.
Just as each leader was trying to iaslen his
nwn " i(]t?n" tn Mm nnrtv nrinpinl^ lhf>
party beg in lo hear from Iho people again.
There c .rno an election in Connecticut in which
the republican voters stayed at home and permit'
ed their ticket to bo beaten. There came
another in Vermont, in which Iho victory
was far iroin inspiriting ; another in Maine,
showinj a great decrease in republican
majorities; while far away California
matched Connecticut with positivo victory
for that som (me unlicard of thing, an
opposiiion. Maryland showed (he case oveu
more clearly. Uor peoplo voted on a constitution
made in a spirit very distinctly hostile
to all this nigger suffrage tendency, and it was
seen that her republican voters would not declare
against that constitution, but permitted
it to bo curried by a very largo majority. All
these warnings have begun to open the eyes
of the radicals, who supposed they owned the
country, and now fill thera with natural alarm.
Their demoralization is most apparent in
Albany. Radical leaders there hold in ihcir
hands the constitution made this summer, before
their eyes were opened?the constitution
containing the whole radical scheme, nigger
suffrage and all. It is a while elephant that
llvov know not wh it to do with?an internal
machine that may at any moment blow them
all to pieoos. They have made this constitution,
and they daro not submit it to the people;
lor it is a dead certainty that to go before the
people now with such a programme would be
certain destruction, tbat it would revolutiouizo
the Stale, and th it the lost vestige of radicalism
would be swept away in a whirlwind of popular
vongeame. Worse than all, it is impo-<siblo
for litem to hide or even disguise their
dilemma. To burke this constitution, as sonio
propose, would bo as bad as to present it; and
to present it would bo evident ruin. In their
frl.ibt, in their consternation, in the general demoralization
that has seized upon these cr.izy
I aders, is seen the ccriainly of the triumph ot

AfTntrtt in Icnljr.
I alian -flairs have not yet settled down into
a state which prom soe to be permanent. Some
sr doubtless of opinion that wo have had Italy
and Rome and Victor Emanuel an i Garibaldi ad
ruP!8t-im. In spite, however, of our likings nnd
didikings, the world rolls on nnd the wheel of
fortune turns up new rcnil's nni creates new
expectations. Garibaldi has undo Victor
Emanuel King of Italy; Victor Emanuel i?, 110
doubt, grateful; Garibaldi has made np his
mind to make Victor Em inuol King in Rome,
and we have little doubt that Victor Emanuel
will be more grateful to Garibaldi than ever.
Aspromonto was a sad mistake?a mistake as
much, and perhaps more, on the part of the
King of Italy as on the part of tbo ex-candle
maker of Slaton Island. It is a question
whether Aspromonto will bo repented.
Our yesterday's telegrams relating to tho
affairs of Italy wero interesting. Garibaldi,
who boa long boon threatening war (In spite
of tho Peace Congress at Genera), has at last
proclaimed it, declaring that the time has come
to giro to "the Eternal City its ancient supremacy
as tho capital of tho Italian kingdom."'
Victor Emanuel has issued a counter
proclamation, in which he forbids all Italians,
under tho severost pains and penalties, to take
any part in the movement against Rome. The
l'ope, again, denounces tho Italian government
for proposing to sell the lands of the
Church. We havo thus a threefold difficulty.
Victor Emanuel quarrels with Garibaldi and
the Pope quarrels with both.
It will not surprise us to learn that, In spite
of a quarrel between Victor Emanuel and
Garibaldi, and in spite of tho feelings, of the
' Emperor of the French. Rome has fallen into
the hands of the Italian government. Victor
Emanuel may bo opposed to tho course proposed
by Garibaldi or he may not; but Victor
i Emanuel is as anxious to havo Romo for his
headquarters as Garibaldi can bo to give it
> him ; and it Is very doubtful if Louis Kapolfior
t will von'ure to Interfere should Heme hi (?,<
i mtkt fall into tbo hands of the Italian*. Tin
s Italians havo no desire to do injury th<
' p.-fs >n nf his Holiness or to detract from tlu
r i dl^nl y ef his sacred offioo. If the Pbpe, there
I fore, is ti >t uunocessarilf stubborn, m arrange
ment satisfactory to the Italian kingdom. and
not disadvantageous to the Holy See, nuy be
come to before we are aware. It matters Uko
the turn which we are disposed to believe
they will take, another serious blow v.'ill hum
been givoa to the prestige of Napoleon.
Yrtlaw Fever lu ilic Month*
The Gulf States have b, on a -veroly scourged
this fall by one of the ino?t terrible visitations
t>? Provldonee?namely, yellow fever. Evjry
mail and telegram brings the same sad intelligence
of hundreds of viotims bein^ carried to
their graves, and of the oxoJus of those who
escaped the fearful malady. In Texas and
New Orlo&n* Jho disease is most malignant, and
the mortality is of A nature sutBcleni to str.ke
terror into the hearts' 0* the survivors. The
proportion of suff-rers is, however, terribly on
the side of Northern people living in itiose
districts. That circumstance alotie ought to
arouse the sympathies of our capital sta, independent
of the common feelings of humanity
towards distressed follow creatures. If the real
state of the sufferings of the people of the Gulf
Stales from yellow favor was laid before the
public of tho North by our health authorities,
and means of alleviating this distress suggested,
there would be, undoubtedly, an
instant and adequate answer given by tho metropolis
at least Let there b a proper and
responsible land inaugurated and the real
at it; of lbs caso lail before our people, and
their g-merous, humane and noble fo dings will
at once rcpoud to the call. The facts of (h
caso are 1 irlrendlng. Our eorrospondent
from Galveston says that the yellow lever has
been decim iting tiiat city for tho last two
months, and that nin hundred deaths occnrr d
from the end of July to tho early part of the
present month. Sixty-four died at Now Orleans
within the twenty-four hours cu ling at six
o'clock* 011 Saturday morning. At Corpus
Christi, Indlanola, Houston, and other towns,
the mortality is of the most fearful kind,
ihcse facts will suffice to arouso tho sympathies
of all in the Nor h, and they call lor immediate
assistance. Some of those cities resemble vast
hospitals, and are deserving objects of commiseration.
Let aid be given them at onto,
and with unsparing hand.

Tho returns of registration in the South are
sufficiently complete to establish the fact that
the negroes and their whito sympathisers are
in a majority in nt least seven out of the ten unrocons.'ructod
States. In Virginia the whites are
in an apparent majority; but it is not known
how many ot thorn ire of the radical stripe, who,
of course, will cast their lot aud their ballots

radicals out ot view for the time, the question
becomes interesting, How far has President
Johnson aided reconstruction t Being lately
called upon by certain politicians, for the purpose
of U'giag him to reopen registration in
the South, ho informed them that he "could
not do so without incurring certain risk of
impeaohment, and admitted that the reconstruction
laws confer on tue District military
commanders sole control over registration.
His only power of interference was the removal
of commanders when they failed to
execute the laws in accordance with his views
ol their legal construction." There is the
whole story in a nutshell. It can bo
imagine.I from this how tar the President
has proceeded in his policy of reconstruction,
lie lias, in reality, himself given the South
entirely over to ttio negroes, aud although bo
has removed cortain radical idols from their
| military positions, he has in no manner effected
a change in tbo radical Congressional mode of
reconstruction, nor ameliorated the rigors of
the double star and shoulder slr<tp rule undor
which the white pooplo of tho South are
laboring. Instead, therefore, of the radicals of
nil shades blazing away at JoLuson (or his
attempts to pnt in force liis peculiar reconstruction
policy, they ought to vote him a gold
medal tor the aid ho has contributed to their
doctrine of turning over every unreconstructed
Southern State into tho hand* of the negroes.
He has done this booauso he could not help
himself, and the radicals are acting most preposl
-rously in abusing him for aiding tie ru in
carrying out their niischiovous, irritating and
abominable plana of reconstruction.

Mr Forrest's Macbeth ts familiar to m ?t th ?etrs<
goers la New York. It is an impersonation eosstsaiag
many merits and some delects. The rough, suldierty
energy with which ho receives lite prophocy of bis future
greatness, proceeds to the accomplishment of it by
the murder of his royal master, and is in the end roused
by the per,is ih.it thick.-n around him. is welt represented
by Mr. Forrest. lie makes the Thane of Cawdor
a blunt, fearless soldier, such as he should be. Still,
the well known mannerisms of Mr. Forrest in this character
detract greatly from his earnestness and energy.
His reading is faultless, excep in this par.
licular? that it is painfully studied acd aruflcbt.
The Tcntriloqulai voice i.icis that careless dash and
briM.|ueno.is that one would oxpect In such a character,
and the strongest situations are too palpably "stagey*'
to produce the intended oSoot. Mr. Forrest's* Macbeth
last night was wholly Forrest and not according to
Shuicspe.iro's definition or en actor. Mr. Burton Hill in tvo
admirnhlo and excellent actor, and his lianquo was um
excsptionabie in evory respect. Malamo 1'ouiai played
l.aily Macbeth very well, and the theatre maybe coagrai.uiniofl
on eucb an accession. There in little fault to
find with the rest of the cast. Under the experienced
direction of Mr. Moore the great tragedy km well
placed on the etage and was a success In all the subordinate
Bowery Tlu-atre.
Miss Lizzie Bernard, a promising young actress of the
Maggie Mitchell school, made her appearance on the
boards of the old Bowery last evening In Ortana, a new
sensation play by Mr. Maeder. As Oriana, tbe ill-used
little at'p-daugbter; Molly Finnegao, tbe Irish noo>
brette, and as Mademoiselle Mignon, the juvenile danume.
Miss Lizzie Bernard sustained a triple role with great
force and apparent ease, gaining much applause trout
the enthusiastic audience wbiob crammed the tbealr#
(roiu pit to colling. Mr. bludlev's acting of tbe drunks*
sot. Rtienue Mionon, was roally admirable, and the eem.
blauoe of delirium which he puis on in tho second aot
Is almost frightful in Ma intensity. Mr. Cunnlagbai*
gavo a fair rendering of the unprincipled but yet good*
hearted Lieutouant of the Guards, who Is the hero of
the plot; and tbe rest of the characters are ably
sustained, particularly ibat ol Mr. A. Poud. Orland
promt ns to have a run, and the engagement ot Mine
Bernard will doubtless prove a successful hit for thn
enterprising leasee of the Bowery. In the afterpiacn
last ovoniug of the Toodlos, that inimitable faroe e<k
well known to theatregoers, tbe principal character wad
sustained by Mr. Marston, wliosi comic powers and
reputation am current wherever tbe sock and buskin
