We havo read the remarkable document, called an address of the Democratic mem ber! < f Congress to tho people of tba United States, with much care, for in it we recognize tha new platform of the con test of '72. It haa been prepmed wi h great deliberation The leading minds of the party have been generally consulted and their matured judgment, enlightened by the late elections Bed tho fu.nl action OT the Congress which has jost adj urned, is (!X_'icbs ■■! in this addm-e. The design of ils publication is cleaily lo furt.ieh a Cmnoti ground •■• Beiitinntft ai.d aclim among the oppi Hti.m to the Republican parly, Its t: Da is rlfsijtied to !>e moderate Kid at times .'caches a level of fairness u_* usual in Democratic literature. But it Boon descend* s*f*lr. t > its natural plane of reckless denunciat'ou, boldly assertirg tbe gravest fnlselr -. ds ar.d UiisrapreSPnttltfl lie • nrit, purpose*, and p_M iithiti of the Republican puny with d.i-ni.iiwd and Wilful peraistency. Along with this mrdhy tf false accusa tiona, we aro refreshed with some kindly advice to its unruly members. It aays to Its bad boj*l—its Ku-Klux, T:\mniary •hoalder-hilters, and the like—"Don't act ■o; you will frighted away our new re cruits. There tiro So many people watch ing us, snd waiting to see whether we fulfil our promises of good behavior, you must make our pledgis good by lying quiet ns lambs till alter election. Then you shall have a pl.iy spell again. Only do this, ami our kind-hearted Republican brethren will be sorry for the hard things they have said, and let us into tbe house again. They will uot merely kill the fatted calf iv honor ol our return, but they will make haste to surrender Ihe larder to tbe Democratic prodigals." This is the way these high priests of Democracy Interpret the new gospel to their turbulent disciples; We earnestly entreat our fellow-citizens in all parts of the Union to spare no effort to maintain peace and order, to carefully protect the tights of every citizen, to preserve kindly relations among all men, and to discountenance and discourage any violation of the rights of any portion of the people secured under the constitution or an* of its amendments. Let us, in conclusion, earnestly beg of you not to aid the present attempt* of Radical par tisans to stir up strife in the land ; to renew the issues of the war, or to obstruct the return ot peace and prosperity to the Southern States, because it is thus that tbey seek to divide the attention of the country from the corruption and extravagance in their administration of public allahs, and the dangerous and protligat. . attempt- tbey are making towards tbe creation of a centralized military government. I Then follows the enunciation of the grand purposes of the party, which has a. smack of Liberty, Equality, Fraternity and "Fourth of July" about it quite takiug With very young people and older men in nocent of historical knowledge: "It is to protect and perpetuate the rights wbicb every freeman cherishes, to revive in all hearts tha feelings of friendship, affection, and harmony, wbicb are tbe best guarantees of law and order, and to throw around tbe humbleai citizen, wherever be may be, tbe protecting aegis of those safe guards of personal liberty which tbe fundamental laws ot tbe land assure, that we invoke tbe aid of all good men in the work of peace and reconstruction." All good men are then invited to the feast: "We invite their generous co-operation, ir respective of all former differences of opinion, ■o that tbe harsh voice of discord may be si lenced." This reminds us of the Cannibal chief who, having found his English missionary friends a little inconvenient, invited them to a grand banquet with many flue com pliments. On their arrival they were turned over to the royal cooks, and their part in tbe banquet consisted in furnishing ft caeeed'Etiglishmen of fine qualily. . ♦ » .— _—— THE LABOR I'll 081, KM. Mr. Hoar, representative from Massa chusetts, will be remembered aa an original legislator if he never achieves any higher fame. The national education, bill, which has been so sadly neglected by Congress, was his inspiration, and now he' again cornea to the front with a no less novel proposition relative to tho reciprocal in terests of employers and laborers, and suggesting a solvent of the labor problem. This bill of Mr. Hoar's provides for the appointment of a commission of three persons by the President, with the consent of the Senate. The commission is to hold office for iwo years from the date of its appointment, and shall investigate the subject of wages, tbe hours of labor, the division of the joint profits of labor and capital between Ihe laborer and the capi talist, and the educational, social, and sanitary condition of the laboring classes, and how the same are affected by existing laws. Tbe commissioners are to receive a salary of five thousand dollars per annum, and at the conclusion of their duties are to report to tbe President and Congress. There is much in this bill to recommend it to tbe thoughtful people of the country. Tbe proposed commission would undoubt edly accomplish much good—n"t only iv tbe statistics and information it might com pile, but in the suggestions that Congress would learn from them. There is a proba bility, too, that its labors might result in a complete elucidation ol the labor pro blem—a consummation devoutly to be wished for in these troublous aud threaten ing times. , —» » a _._. . another Fire from K_kosi_«.—On Saturday night last, tbe building occupied by Mrs. D.

N^TuT" 1 abuva cuts indicate tbe outlines of ihe wards of this city as they were pre vious to the late reconstruction of them by ihe City Council, and as they now exist. It will le noticed that out of tbe territory of the city heretofore divided into five wards, six have It en made; and Ihe at tention of cur citizens is respectfully called to the peculiarity of tho change), to tbe singular inattention to any regularity, to the especially crooked and ill-shaped formation of them. Ami though the un initiated may be at a loss lo divine a reason for the tortuous mear.derings of the Council in laying them off, those familiar with the politics of this city fit il an easy solution of it. It will bo noticed in tho cut "as it was," that the city was divided by nearly parallel lines, running iv n northerly and southeily direction. It must also be renumber! d that a large por tion of the Republican vote resides in tbe northern part of the city—in the suburbs— the party being largely composed of the working classes, who usually live in those portions of every city for reasons of economy. To defeat the force and effect of such votes, and increase tho power of tho rich, in order that thoy may control, rogardle.-s of their actual political strength, the ' Council determined to form a Lew ward of ihe entire northern suburbs of the city, and proceeded to do it iv tbe most dia ; olically offensive aud bhauieless manner possible, and utterly disregarded everything but the certainty of .success of their scheme. It ' mnat also be remembered that at the last ' election in tho third precinct of Jefferson ' ward the Republicans had a majority of ' about three hundred, which mado the ward Republican, and to prevent suoii a ' recurrence that majority must be disposed ' of, and hence the line that marks the ' b mndary of tho now ward (Jackson) is ' thrown in a very tortious manner around ' the said precinct, and from the arms of ' Jefferson is torn tho offensive majority (which last yoar was disposed of by break- i ing up the ballot-box and destroying tie I ballots), and tho whole thing is scooped I into Jackson ward, the common maelstrom I for Republican voters of tho city. ! Marshall ward was guilty at the lust ' electiou of having a Republican majority I of 27 ; then the r_sj nity was disposed of < by the peifideouc trick of requiring Ka- I publican voters to number their ballots, < then throwing them out as illegal votes be- \ cause they vtere so numbered. I This time the Republican majority is to « be disposed of by changing Ibe boundary 1 of the ward from Twenty-filth to Twenty- ' fourth street for a dis'Slica of six or aeven f blocks in order to taKe'iu a particular ( locality where reside about sixty Conserva- i tive voters. Attention is likewise called to the relative size of the wards. Jackson ( has a ot territory, J and also a Republican majority of about r 800. Thus it is intended by this j ering process to rob tbj Repnbl ma ( party of its majority, to steal ffocn !l;e ma- I c joritylot the pcoplo of Richmond their r right to control the government of the city, a to fit feat the law, and to subvert the first and best principle of our government, to wit : that the majority shall rule. If this readjustment was within the scopo of the charter ef the city, we should not have so much cause for legitimate com plaint, but it is in open violation ot the 3rd Motion of the charter approved May Mtli, 1870, which i- as follows: "The said city ,l la i[ be divided into five warda, which number of wards the City Council hereafter may increase ns they may deem expedient. Every such division shall be made in r-uoh maimer aa to include cm eijital number of voters in each v-ird, as nearly as conveniently may be, consistent with the well defined limits of each ward.'' Tho population of the new ward is known to bo more dense than any other, hence a planco at tho territory of Jackson ward will convince any man of tho infrac tion of the charier, of which wo complain. Now, this is Dot a matter of concern to the BepubH-__ party alone, but o« the con trary is of serious moment to all law-abid ir.f! c'lizTin who lovo pe.iee, harmony and economy, It may bo well to Inquire what has been gained". We can sea nothing, except in oreijed expense antl depreciation in the vii.i: of property in tho new ward. Already it is called "Africa,' and property ha< depreciattd, on tho principle that a bad name, however unjust, works injury. The expense of five additional setts of registration anil election officers, has been added to our already heavy outlay, to say nothing of the extra printing and expense preparatory to Its creation. It seeuis to ua this moans of deftttttog the majority of its power, cal's for reform, and further, it is unquestionably in viu'a tion of tbe fifteenth amendment to the constitution and the laws made thereunder as well us to tho constitution of our Sta:o and ths charier of the city of Richmond, As wo witnessed the o«lebratio;i of tho anniversary of tbe adoption of the fif teenth amendment by our colored ciiizess the Other day, we could not resist the re- Beetli v that they were celebrating a mere Bhaddow ami o ithtng roal, ao fur as they aro concerned True they vote, but the territory of the State and this city is so dietricle.l by the Uamier-atlve party that thiir votes hare no force or e&Vt, and hence practically tho right to vole is a nulity and of no account. And thus it is that men in Virginia have equal (?) rigt.l3. Vi'hwi will Congress learn the true situation of affairs in the - South, anil when w||l t,, o ir political sa- | fiaclty la litw-makiug riso above the reach of defeat of its purposes by the subtle chi chiueryvf Demccralic thimblo rigger;* Is Congress powerlesq (a any effect tv the vines It sreuiestho colored man? Poos it mean to simply let them volo for mere form take, is il only intended fur fun aud play ? If Bet, they, wq demand that t!,ur v._us .hail not bo robbed of thel r i effect. Win r.: are tho United States I courts? Aie they powerless to command respect for Constitutional _i_ci,diiifcnts ? If so, it is time that wo knew it, We want fair play and peace. Bat we firmly demand our rights. The Civil War In France. TIIE GERMANS PREPARING TO EVACUATE — THE COMMUNISTS DISCOURAGED — PRO POSED DETHR6NEMKNT OF THE KING OF SPAIN, _C, _C.
