Partial Degradation But Aggregate Developement.
,. , , , TeleaWSMBt
The degeneracy . of particular classes, of
' families, and lb decline of particular nations
" and peoples lire the evidence that with
the exaggerations which, always attach to
traditions, which make it easy to believe that
a few centuries ago men were giants or demi
gods, or tired a thousand years form the
basis of the popular idea that mankind is
degenerating. If the common idea of the
irovauwuv uwniin in nujr Kt, unu ltooii kuv
ratio of degeneracy, mankind would have de
generated into reptiles before the earth had
'' been (ire hundred years old, 1 and instead of
our proud descent from the monkeys, we
should have had an ignominious descent to
The same delusion prevails in regard to
political parties In this country. The per
sonal ambition, jealousies, bates and quarrels
of politicians, are forgotten, while their
virtues are exalted until they appear super
human. We are all disposed to believe that
political parties have been debased within
onr own observation. Probably it is only
the ancient delusion. The United States
Senate is universally adduced as an illustra
tion; but while different parties and sections
, dot line in the ability or civlllzatlon-ol' their
representation, it is probable that the aggre
gate ability of the Senate was never greater
than now. Even if it was, the marked in
crease in ability In the House over the time
when Clay, Webster, Hayne and Calhoun led
the Senate, maintains the average develop
ment and improvement of the whole repre
sentation. 1 '
In' nothing is the decline so manifest as in
the representation of the peculiar interests
of the South. In former times these Repre
sentatives were distinguished for courtesy,
good-breeding end culture, as well as for
statesmanship. Then it was that the South'
ern character for chivalry was established,
which is now only traditional, 1 was under
this regime that the South acquioed its pres
tige in the nation, which it is now rapidly
losing. Chivalry and courtesy are just at
inseperable M chivalry and courage; but
Southern chivalry, as exhibited by those who
assume now to be its peculiar representatives,
has neither good breeding nor courage. It
va nta itself on its aptness to quarrel with
non-combatantSjj on its willingness to give
offense, with its hand on a revolver, ready to
shoot down an unprepared man if he shows
signs of resentment ; and it even justifies an
assault of superior numbers on an unsuspect
ing man, contrived with all the care and pre
meditation, and calculations how three fully
armed persons might assault one defenseless
man without danger, that would characterize
paid assassins ; and it in one word defines its
own idea of chivalry, by pronouncing this
act chivalrous. ...
There can be no question that Southern
power and influence hare been sacrificed by
this debasement of the character of its repre
sentation in Congress. But it would not be
fair to infer that Southern character has like
wise degenerated. . The excitement on the
negro question has been used for political
effect iu the South, even more than in the
North. This being the readiest means for
promoting the ambition of unscrupulous poli
ticians, it has been agitated to the top of
their bent; while the fact that throughout the
South the great majority of the most substan
tial slave-holders never belonged to the Demo
cratic party, has to a great extent retired
them from political prominence, and left their
representation chiefly in the hands of men of
less character, and who had little or no inter
est in the institution which they professed to
be so rabidly infected with. This is probably
the explanation of the rapid degeneracy of
the Southern representation, and of the in
troduction of the manners of the slave-driver
into Congress in the place of the ancient
courtesy and high-breeding of the slave
owner. The ill-effects of this fall chiefly on the
South. It is natural that they who observe
superficially, or whose observation is colored
by anti-slavery sentiments, should attribute
this to the degrading effects of slavery. It
was perfectly natural that Mr. Sumner should
make this state of things a charge against
slavery itself, as he did in the following ex
tract from his speech, although if he were
better acquainted with Southern politics he
would find it due to the facts to which we
have referred, that the course of party poli
tics has crowded out of public life a large
portion of the most substantial slave
holders, who are naturally those of the most
"Slavery is founded on violence, as we have
already too clearly seen; of course it can
only be sustained by kindred violence; some
times against the defenseless slave, sometimes
against the freeman, whose indignation is
aroused at the outrage. It is founded on
brutal and vulgar pretensions, as we hare
already too clearly seen: of course it can
only be sustained by kindred brutality and
vulgarity. The denial of all rights in the
slave caa be sustained only by a disregard of
other rights, common to the whole commu
nity, whether of the person, of the press, or
of speech. Where this exists, there can be
hut one supreme law, to which all other laws,
legislative or social, are subordinate; and this
is the pretended law of slarery. All these
things must be manifest in slave masters,
and yet, unconscious of their true condition,
they make boasts which reveal still further
the unhappy influence.
"The swagger of a bully is called chivalry;
a swiftness to quarrel is called courage; the
bludgeon is adopted as a substitute for argu
ment, and assassination is lifted to be one of
the fine arts. Long ago it was fixed certain
that the day which made a man a slave took
half his worth away' words from the an
cient harp of Homer, resounding through
long generations. Nothing here is said of
the human being at the other end of the
c hain. To aver that on this same day all
liia worth is taken away might seem in
consistent with exceptions which we gladly
recognize; but, ala I it is too clear, both from
reason and from evidence, that, bod as slavery
js tor the slave, it is worse for the master."
It was unfortunate for the Sooth that at
the close of this elaborate effoTt to illustrate
the debasing effects of slavery by the manners
of the slave-holders, as exhibited in Con
gress, Mr. Chesnut should have replied
with aa exhibition' of concentrated Venom, '
and billingsgate, as if With a determination
to clinch the truth of Mr. Sumner's illustra
tions by his own manners. To be received
with distinguished favor by the best society
in "Europe, is nowhere more' admired than
among Americans, .especially in the South,
and when Mr. Chesnut . characterised the
honorable reception which Mr. Sumner met
abroad, as "ranging over Europe, , Mocking
through back-doors and fawning at, the feet
uf British aristocracy," he only showed how
the envy and malice at bl own soul regarded
t' 'i'- .......jrvt f tlti,
honors because they were paid to Mr. Sum
ner. He even was so stung beyond self-control
that he Jtaupted.. Mr- Suiunen, with
cowardice because of the punishment
which he had received from a gang of assas
sins, as if the disgrace of this cowardly act
could be transferred from South Carolina to
the helpless victim of conspiracy. The South
had no reason to Complain bf the discussion
of slavery. They had challenged it In every
way, and on every point argued by him. His
speech was strictly within parliamentary
proprieties and courtesy; and for the Southern
members to be maddened by it and driven to
personal abuse or to, another resort to the
itssassin-way of answering argument, exhib
ited the puerile weakness of challenging dis
cussion, and then when they hate bad their
say, without limit in the use of invective and
abuse, wanting to plead something In the na
ture of the baby-act, assuming that it is a sub
ject which will only bear discussion on one
side. .. - .
A correspondent of the New York Inde
pendent, in giving the reasons urged against
Mr. Seward at Chicago, says that Egyptian
Illinois and Indiana were strenuous hi their
opposition, for the'reason that he is in favor
of negro suffrage: i
"A prominent Indiana man said to me
that that doctrine would never be allowed by
their people, nor would he allow it. Ho was
not going, he said, to have a 'nigger' voting
alongside of him, or expressing his opinions,
and although if I were to come to Indiana to
argue the question, they would tolerate me,
because I was a white man, yet if any nigger
should try any snch thing, they would split
his head for him in two minutes."
Really this seems very singular in a Con
vention which resolved that " AU men are
created equal, and are endowed by their
Creator with certain inalienable rights." It
seems that the equality of all men is only
good for the platform. In the candidate it
would be fatal, and if a negro should repeat
the second resolution of the platform in
Indiana, the Republicans would split his
head. The platform is like the heated one
on which Bruin isHaught the Terpsichorean
art the candidate must only touch it with a
Republicanism started the principle of
negro rights, and ever since, the party has
been like the magician in the German legend,
who conjured up a monster which he could
not exorcise, and it became the terror of his
life. Republicanism Is constantly in terror
of its great principle of negro rights. It
puts the principle in the platform, but would
split the bead of a candidate who had ever
If the negro is created equal to all man
kind, what right have Republicans to rovise
the work of tho Creator, and make him
unequal ? If the negro is endowed
with Inalienable human rights, he is
endowed with them all, and what
right have Republicans, who, according to
their own platform, . deprive him of
a portion of his human rights, to condemn
tho South for depriving him of other human
rights? While we admit such a palpable
squint in our own moral and political vision,
what right have wo to scratch out Southern
eyes on suspicion of a slight cast?
it would seem that the South hold slbe most
logical position. They deny the equality of
the negro, and hold him in what they claim
to be necessary and beneficial subjection.
The Republicans affirm his equality and his
human rights, and then deprive him of them.
Tho Republican party has found the doctrine
of negro human rights too heavy to carry i
it is now its terror, and the sooner it is aban
doned the sooner that party will be relieved
from the mortifying position of existing on
a doctrine which it dare not face.

Inspired by the Bplondid audiences that at

kosch has returned and given us two nights
of opera. The " season " was as brilliant as
brief, like the lost flicker of a tallow dip,
leaving a like pleasing perfume on the
memory. Responding to the generosity
of our concert goers, as only a Strakosch

expense, with few performers, without

A Hard Road to Travel.
Republican principles having become
rather delicate to handle now-a-days, a new
one has been invented to fit the present
emergency the principle of rotation in of
fice. The State Convention is to be held at
Columbus to-day, to nominate, among other
officers, a Judge of the Supreme Court. Just
before the last Convention, Judge Swan de
cided the Fugitive-slave Law Constitutional.
For that the Convention superceded him; or,
to use the phrase then current slaughtered
him. This year Judge Brinkerhoff 's term
expires. He decided the Fugitive-slave Law
unconstitutional. Then the party exalted
Judge Brinkerhoff. But to resolve and pro
claim this Republican doctrine is very dif
ferent from sustaining a Judge who upholds
it, and putting him squarely before the
people by a renomination. Judge Brin
kerhoff is to be disposed of; but to
slaughter one Judge last year for - de
ciding a question one way; and another
this year, for deciding the same question the
other way, would place the parly in a very
sanguinary, as well as a very ridiculous light.
So the prinoiple of rotation in office wav dis
covered; it is found that one term is all that
is proper for a Judge of the Supreme Court.
Furthermore, '' it . , is , just found .' out
that this wo the very principle that
slaughtered Judge Swan, and that the Fugitive-slave
Law was never beard of in connec
tion with the case. Besides, rotation is a
Democratic principle, and wit) It not make
the Republican the true Democratic party ?
a So, Judge' Brinherhoff is to be slaughtered
to-day, and Republicans will vociforate clam
orously that hii tltcuaonoathe Fugitive-slave

Mr. Erwin was then conducted to the
Chair, when he delivered an address to the
Oonvontion,explainingthc duty of the South:
whoso duty, he said, is to protect its own
rights, to unfurl its flag to the breeie, and to
firmly and proudly march on, demanding
that the Constitution shall be preserved in
word, and deed, and letter, and the equal
rights of the States guaranteed. He would
say nothing In favor or against going to Bal
timore, but, whatever is done, we must stran
gle this serpent squatter sovereignty. He
denied the imputation that their purpose
was disunion. The Northern Democrats
have gone in pursuit of a false god that the
South can not worship, and we must en
deavor to bring them bock to the true faith.
He earnestly hoped that the result of their
deliberations here would result not only in
securing our own rights, but the welfare of
the whole country.

that a vote should be taken direct upon them.
Mr. Hunter, La., moved tho previous ques
tion. Ho was surprised that after the full
and formal understanding, that there should
have been opposition to a direct vote on the
resolutions. It was to avoid all discus
sion. Mr. Jones, of Ga., said it would be highly
improper to take any action at this time on

awe to harmonize at Baltimore, to have Ken

Col. Baldwin, of Syracuse, said that New
York came here to assist to throw oil on the

have done, to take no decisive action here,
but to go to Baltimore. '
The commisioners, he said, agreed with
this Convention in deploring the nomination
of an individual whose selection would be
as injurious to himself as it would be de
structive to the Democratic party, and dan
gerous to the Union.
Mr. Baldwin proceeded at some length to
deprecate the dissolution of the Union, and to
say that he was one of those who could not
see how the Union could be dissolved. .
Mr. Dawson, of Georgia, called the gentle
man to order. ;
Mr. Baldwin resumed, and continued for a
few moments in the same strain, when Mr.
Harry ,jofMissi8sippi,rose and said: "While we of
the South avoided all discussion of the ques
tion, we can not permit others to open the
discussion. We have allowed the gentleman
from New York to sneak by courtesy, and he

"An Abode of Love"—Curious History.
For some time peace hag rested on the
Agapemone, a free-love association in Eng
land, and the world has heard nothing of
what passed within its walls; but recently
some strange doings, detailed in the Bridge-
water papers, have drawn aside again the
vail, and exposed to the public gaze some few
of its mysteries:
About six venrs airo. Lewis Price, a clercv.
man and a Welshman, joined the Princeites.
Since then he has married ono of three Miss
Nottidges, who are said to have taken with
them to the Agapemone 6,000 each, the
wuuie ui wiucu money was sccurea to the
Lord. Another Miss Nottideo was married
to an inmate, and a third died lately under
The brother of the deceased lad v haa taken
legal proceedings against Mr. Prince, the
head of the establishment, for the recovery
of the 6,000 his sister possessed, and the
case will, we understand, come before the
Judges next term. Mr. Price appears at one
time to have been a zealous advocate of the
creed of his adoption, and was one of those
who attended the noisy meetinir held in
Bridgewater to persuade the good folk of
mis uiwn mat air. rrince was a Heaven
sent prophet and redeemer. About three
months ago, however, Mr. Price, having been
deprived of his wife for six weeks or there
about, got tired of his lord's assumntions.
and left the loving abode, vainly endeavoring
to take his lady with him.
With the late Mr. Waterman, of Castle
House, Enmore, he resided for a short time,
and has also been Btavinor at the Lamb Inn.
Spaxton, adjoining the Agapemone, devoting
his time and energies to nrocure the releiun
of his wife from the tender guardianship of
til- Dftii-Atlm. ...1. ir f
have been the plans and contrivances to at
tain this end; but they have hitherto proved
unavailing. Application was made to the
Eolice to remove Mrs. Price by force, her hus
and alleging that he had reason to believe
that she was detained against her will. Of
course, the constables had no power to in
trude themselves amonir the hanov family
and tear away one of its members, so another
pinu iiuu to ue uevmea.
it was arranged that when the lady was
walking on the terrace, in the rear of the
dwelling of. the Princeites, Mr. Price should
jump mo vairierB uiviuing me grounas irom
a neighboring field, seize his partner, and
trust to the protection of the policemen in
waiting to prevent a breach of the neara fmm
the gentlemen of the. Agapemone assaulting
him and rescuing her. This scheme, fcasiblaus
it looked, turned out to be difficultof execution
Tho doughty Welshman patiently waited
for a favorable opportunity to disnlav his
courage, but whenever his lady mode her ap-
ueurunue in uib guraens ana on the terrace,
she was guarded by a Princeite on either side,
or was accompanied by one only with others
at hand. The gallant liberation was not at
tempted, proceeding no further than a project,
and recourse was conseaueutlv IimjI tn lw
Mrs. Price was at last summoned to appear
before Court, and having done so, the lady
deposed that Bho was not detained in the
" Abode of Love ' in defiance of her inclina
tion, and that she was desirous of remaining
in tho blissful edifice. This reply defeated
the aim of the husband, the judge at once de
clining to make an order for the reafnrntinn
of the lady to her liege lord. Further pro
ceedings are to be taken, for we hear that
mere is a question oi money to De contested,
besides a Question of wife nosaesaion. Mr.
Price being shut out from the enjoyment ef
any portion ui xiis wne s xo,ouu, as wen as

It is stated that all the inmates of the
Agapemone transfer their property to their
cinet, ana Bign a deed by which they agree to
forfeit all on discontinuing to reside at the
piace, ana separating themselves irom the as
sociation. By the same deed provision is
mado that members absenting themselves
three months shall be excluded. The people
of the village of Spaxton allege that seven
teen or eighteen Agapemonites have quitted
the place within twelve months; and they
say for soven or eight years no children have
been born to the many couples living in the
