We shall unflinchingly deft d tbe elec tion law!., and let tbe Democrat carry out their threats of refusing i,tvr..iritinn8 if tbev dare. On this -r . aftrstioa I think there is bnt eu opinion and one will among Repub- licans." The President's menage is short aod to the point. It is as plo vtn Paddv's biot, that the country ia'ot dyiog of anxiety for tbe pres ent aeion of Congress He briefly inform this Congress that be wax couetraioed to call it tigetber be cause its immediate predecessor fail ed to make pprop-ietiooa for tfce eunp-irt of the army and tbe judicial i and executive branches of tbe O ov. eminent This, and nothing more. One of the firi-t bills introduced in tbe Sepa:e, was by Mr. Betk, to "repeal so mnch of tbo revised stat utes as prohibits the appointment to tbe army ot persons engaged in tbe late rebellion." Oar Southern breth ren who deserted duriag tbe late war, want their old places back again. By all means let tte army be reorganized, deserters restored to their former positions, traitors placed in control of it, and then back pay be voted to these worthy gentlemen, covering tbeir nineteen years of en- -nce. Tbe Sauth must be conciliated, yoa know. Tut Southern Brigadiers evident ly thought they bad as mnch Penn sylvania Democracy as they could stomach tn Randall, whom they were forced to elect Speaker of the House, to save themselves from the follies of Blackburn ; so tbey sana caarily kicked Heister Cly trier out of tbe Chairmanship of the caucus Committee to make way for John F. House, of Tenessee. Steoger got just one vote for Secretary of tbe Senate and Uncle Jake Zsigler for Sergeant-at-Arms was nowhere. Tbe old days are presumed to be back gain wben the more yoa kick a Pennsylvania doughface, tbe lower be grovels in tbe dirt si the feet of bis Southern masters. Hebe is a comforting assurance of Democratic sweets to come, for the business men and tax payers of tbe country: at the Uemccratic caucus held on Thursday last, Alexander II Stephens of Georgia, one of tbe most conservative Southern men in Congress, advocated tbe ufcue of "at least'' $500,000,000 ia greenbacks, and tbe total repeal of all Internal Revenue taxes. It one of tbe most conservative Democrats in Congress thus proposes to start with a flood cf irredeemable greenbacks, and tbe wiping out of f 20,000,000 of revenue ennually, obtained from taxation of m bitky, tobacco, Ae. What may not be expected, when tbe irresponsible bot beads and fools in Congress get tbe Legislative machine fairly started and under control ? Tue Union soldiers must feet !eculiarly gratified, wben tbey look ever tbe present roll of tnited States Senators, and count nineteen ex-Confederate officers and only four men wbo risked their lives for tbe old flag, in tbat body.

C., instead I-..-. i.f. .! We just envy tbe feeling ;f tte Republicans wbo voted for Coffrotb, wben tbev read tbe proceedings of tbe organization of tbe House, and see that by barely one vote bis vote tbe Southern confederates were enabled to obtain control of that body and the Government for tbe coming two years. We congratulate tbem also on tbe fact tbat, tbe first vote be gave, after the organization was complete, was to deprive a Re publican of the seat to wbich be was elected, aud give it to a rebel, whom the Supreme Court of bis State de cided bad no title to it Tut U 8. Senate has thirty four committees. Twenty-four of these bave chairmen from the South. This most clearly ebows bow the South is deprived of ber rghta, and ber legiti mate power in tbe Government. Having lees tbao oDe tbird of tbe population of tbe country Including negroes wbo have been fraudulently deprived c f their votes she is given two-lbirds of the power in 'ubaping legislation" and jet tbe country is treated to a bowl about tbe iniquitous election laws, and troop, and Re publican Supervisor and Marshals depriving ber of ber rights ; and this extra session of Congress was forced on tbe country, for tbe purpose of repealing theee safeguards of the ballot box aud giving the South a chance. Bom Houses of Confess met for tbe new session on Tuesday last (lDtL). Tbe galleries of both cham bers were packed by crowds of long fcaired, lauk, tobacco stained, hungry looking individuals who came up from tbe Soutb, to see "ourn" take pogaeeeion of the National Capitol again, afer an enforced absence of nineteen years. Randall was elected Speaker of the House by a bare idj rity of one vote. Tbe solid South wa afraid to trUBt Blackburn iii thiscrixis, as he is too iodiscree', and too itucb of a blatberrkite, so tbey permitted Randall, whom tbey cau "count on." 1J tbe lime, to be elected. It was a tight eqaec Z9 ; they bad brought in all tbe siik, bad hurried oua man from Oregon, across tbe Ccntiuent in a special train, at a fearful speed, and then bad just ono of a mnjrity. Of course, Hull of Florida was admitted ; the Democrats could'nt have stolen tbe organization of tbe Houe, and secured tbe offices with out Lim. Here is a history of his title in brief. Despite the most bh sra el tea frauds, HuU was defeated at tbe election. The Democratic canvasi-iasr officers threw out tbe vote of certain p&ritbes and declared him elected, and Governor Drew tiim a ceruticate, wbtco ne pre sented to the House. Meantime Mr. Btfcbee Lad appealed to tbe Supreme Court of tbe gtate ; it decided that tbe canvassing board bad exceeded its authority, and ordered a r-can-vass. Tbts re-canvass was made and resulted in showing tbat Bisbee bad a majority of the votes. He then demanded tbat tbe Governor should issne him & certificate. This be refused to do, although b? Attorney General a Democrat wrote s-o opinion tbat it was bis duty so to do: The Supreme Court certified tbat Bicbee was elected. Some cf tbe scoundrels wbo perpetrated tbe frauds bave been convicted and are ia the penitentiary. Hull himself is under indictment for complicity in tbe frauds, and yet a Democratic House "Oar Alec" voting yea by strict party vote gave this indicted scoundrel tbe seat to which Bit-bee was elected. The President was compelled to eall tbe present extra session of Con gress, because tbe Democrats insisted upon taring the so-called, "Super visor's law" repealed, and added it to one of the appropriation bills. Tbey refused topas8 the biil without it, and by this revolutionary proceeding com pelled tbe President to assemble Congress again, or to Jet tbe Gov ernment stop fot want of money to pay its expenses. We publish tbe law in another culumu, and ask wby any honest man, we care not of what party, should desire its repeal. It is not partisan in any aspect, ap plies to all the country, and is intro duced as a safeguard against flection frauds. The only reason or its re-: pea; is, tnat tbe trauds committed in tbe Soutb, ad in such cities as New York, may bo maUiplied. Observe, it applies only to I ha detica ofj Presidential electors and Members of Congress. Repeal this law. and tbe Democracy sill capture tbe next Presidency, if tbey &re thousands of votes in tbe minority in two-li;;ds of trie Mates, mat is wby tbey are bowling (or its repeal, and are swear ing if tbe President uses lis veto to prevent it, they will vote no ijjoney to carry oa the Government. At tbe instance cf an esteemed friend in Pittsburgh, and in the in terest of "fair play," we publish else where a brief communication in sup port cf tbe Riot bill As a native of Pittsburgh, having many friends residing therein, ve bare always felt a deep interest in ber welfare, a corresponding pride in ber prosperi ty, and consequently a keen sympe tby for ber ciisfcrtones. As a citi zen of Somerset wbo saw more tban half tbe weary accumulations of a lift licked np ia a few moments by flames, while (cores of onr neighbors fared much worse, we never can for get tbe eegec sympathy extended personally to our unfortnnate people by many citizens of Pittsburgh, and through tbe Legislature by tbe effic ient aid of the representatives of Al legheny connty.

Yet the most extravagant outcries of the Southern press are not without their significance. Tbe literary swashbuckler wbo fills him self witb gunpowder and new whis ky, and lays a raw-bide on the table before bim when he begins to de mulish tbe Radical parly and defend tbe sacred rights of the South, is not an awe inspiring figure but be does very often express the sentiments of bis neiirbb rbood. aad forecast tie policy of bjs party. Tbere is not m'ucb doubt at any rate tbat the ruiiug passion of tbe iSt'nilf p ct u tv, ttaiuflle lUtt Constitutional Amendments in the mire wbi,b, indeed, bat already, been done in most of the reconstruct ed Stales and to sweep away all tbe "Radical lews" by wbtibtbe Repub lican party attempted to secure tbe results of the war wben the rebel States ware allowed to return to tbeir old places in the Union. Equal rights, free suffrage, a fair vot, an bocest cunt, protection for the weak and ignorant, were the only demand wbich we made of tbe defeated party at tbe end of tbe contest, and it was to guarantee tbese things that tbe Amendments and the "Radical laws" w-ere enacted. WbiJe the Republi can party beld an ondisputea majori ty in tbe country, we were asfured tbat the South accepted c verytbiog on good faith. Tbe Lost Cause was lost forever. The .doctrine of equal ity wad oo more to be denied ruber in practice or in ttcory. Tbe Amend ments were recognized witbuyt de mur. Tbe laws parsed in accord ance with tbem were net to be dis turbed. Nothing fould have been more satisfactory tban tb behavior of tbe Confederates 60 long "as ttey were out of power, witb no immedi ate prospect of getting hi. Tbey were so pr.ouss in promises and pro testations tbat tbey aljsoet seemed to be more deeply attached to the Union tban the soldiers wbo fought for it. With tbe first sign of a possible re turn of tbe Democratic party to pow er all these pjesat pretences are soddenly abandoned. Tbe fpirit of secession, nullification and rnxliion flames np as bot as It was io I80. The Lost Cause is airaio a cao-e to be fought for. Tbe Northern Radi cal is an eaetoy to be cursed wiib great soundiug oatLs. The South ern white Radical is an "inceodiV)' to be driven out of tne country. The nigger is to be taugbt cis place. And Radical laws and Radical auand- ments to the Constitution, with all other evices of "oppression," are to be prompil trodden the mire. There is nothing lilio sudden pros perity to test a man's i-haractcr. A gleam of good fortune works an in stantaueons change ia our reconciled bro;ber. Last year be was the most cordial aa4 ?o'eel of human beings; to-day be is as tuenjen; ss if be still owned niggers.
