It passeth our under standing to give a reason Why as a people, We should expect honesty of purpose, candor abd patriotism, from men of intelligence who vo)««4arily fought Ibr over tour years in the de fense of the sum of all villainies "human slavery" and to destroy the best government the world ever saw. The history of tho nation shows that on the part of the votaries of slavery there has been a continuous qystem of intrigues, of breaches Of faith, whenever it eetttod them so to do, and tlAs without oompuncUon Their homes, their families, their happiness, their all, has been for all time controlled by the ignvsfatnis of slavery, as tbe load-stone attr&cts the steel. They offered Vty hundreds of thousands of fives to this idol, this JuggefnautOf their depraved natures, and the tail* Spirit, the same de sires, the samo craving remorseless appetite dwells yet within them, awaiting only the opportunity for voleanie eruption. U is then we repeat, a wonder to us how thrt« oan under any circumstatfoes be afllia tion with them oti the ^aH or union men, with a&y hope of good results. Of ctttirse there are some notable exceptions to this general rule, just enough to make the rule we speak of a sound and truthfbl one. Hear what the Democrat says has been tbe result of an inharmonious re publican party in Missouri. The late meaning of liberalism was enfranchisement. That done, the word here and now ia a dead 4ne. The incidentals of liberalism bare not been so extrflaratftw tfeM any honest ^nd fntdlfgelt neputffioan can be cheated by demagogues with the name when the meaning hae gone out of it. What are thoee in cidentals? Democratic victories— Democratic triumph with but a mi nority vote in this county. A. Dem ocratic representation of 8t. fiouis caunty in the legislature, sent there by a minority off the voters of the county. A Democratic hoftse—and tuck a house A BMr representing Missouri in the United states Senate, aa champion of the Indiana resolu tions and of the Ku-iLlux Klan.— Theee, and things Hire theae, bavo been the muidentals for liberalism, in itself just. The work of that hbetal ism is accomplished. Iin*t it about titot Is there a cent to choose be tween continuing it and striking tbe Republican flag to the Democracy W hat name do these Republicans (I) merit who now maintain that the atl ktMkin The JUptiblican,M treacherous and unprincipled now as it was faithless and traitorous during the rebellion, ainee it baa cunningly aad basely be trayed its wtemporary, bow Mofcrt Fdmfe Viotoria desires to oheckmale its influence in return ing again to its allegience. Like the lecherous soouudrel who has betray ed his victim, it says, who will have confidence ia the virtue of that one who has oace fallen? With the brassy impudence of the finished knave, the Republican says, "thou art altogether like one of us now that yom have affiliated with traitors onee, and how oan you he again re stored to confidence?" A This is but a revam^g of that old trick of the devil who would bind hopelessly forever to his train all who have committed tho firat blunder, the first wrong. If we am not greatly miataken the Uepublicanaof Missouri now see bow unwittingly and how rashly they bave been placed in the power of their old and uncompromising ene mies, and that there will be such reaction as will bring back the State erect with her 80,000 Republican majority, California papers report that the Sacramento municipal election, on the 14th iust., resulted in a decisive victory for the Republicans.

Mr Sumner proceeded. Now, as I desire the suppression of the Ku Klux wherever it shows itself, and tbe elevation of the African race, insist that the Providential scheme which installs the Ku Rlux on the coast of San Domingo, and which at the same time insults the African race in the Black Republics, shall be fitirly represented.

Fighting has been going, on since eater day evening at various points n the Place de la CoMnrifs. This morning cannonading waa distinctly audible south from ^euiHy. The fbttreea of Mont Valerian opened on the oolamna of the Nationals, whioh were marebing on Cottrbree, and kept up a 9oatiuueus lira for several houra to prevent them from eotab lishing thenWelVesln position. The NatiObifs w«ie finally compelled to rail eat after considerable loss. A London Times dispatch says Aghting at Caravadex was sharp, bdt the reports were se oenfliotiBg aa to whioh side fired the first shot. The National Gurds were at first driven into Caravadex where they maintain ed themselvee sometime protected by their horses, but they were at last shelled out by Valerieu and went back to tbe bridge at Ntrily, whero they kept flp a hot fttallada ahot— From this position they wet-a again foreed to rMfrik and finally Wltharcw into tne city And Btidl the gates.

The pobular indignation against tha Vemaillss government is terrifie. The National Guards threaten to attack Versailles.' The havoc Inflicted on the dis ordered centre of the Government troops, after the columns were bro ken by the charge of the coinmun ieta, fearfully demoralised and ren dered them defenceless by fear and the suddenness of the attaqk. Tbey were mowed down in Hties by tho fatal artillery Are, which Wato pointed at their very midst. That of the Government troopa is, however, much in excess of tbe communist's loss. The fighting continued for several hours after the triumph ot tbe com mumst's force was established, but was contracted in a desultory manner. Towards nightfall it ceased entirely. General Bergret with Victoria's right wing, bivouacked for the night at some distanoe beyond Fort Valerian. The leaders and troops were much fluahed with the brilliant victory tbey have aobieved, and are determined to push tbe Gov ernment to surrender. It is rumor ed tbat Flourens, with the left wing, ia making preparationa for au ad vance on Vorsaillee under cover of night, tor the purpose of attacking tbe head of the Government position, before they had timo to rally from its late defeat, or recruit strength with reinforcements.
