SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 17. 1 sr,r,. NEGRO RIFFRAGB. I Dispnlches from Washington inform us I thai Fernando Wood is at the Capital, and that he announces himself in favor of the adoption of the constitutional amend- 1 nient, and the extension of the right of suffrage to negroes. The same mail biittgs us the Chicago Times, of the 12ih inst., in which we find a double-leaded loader "n favor of extending qualified suffrage to I the blacks. We que te the following from the 77 ma' article: Can the democratic party succeed until i tbe negro question shall he gotten out of the way it cannot. What next? Is not iifgro suffrage inevitable, and is not the quickest way to get the negro question I out of the way to at oncu concede the «uf frage, making iseue only on ihe degree to which it shall be conceded We know that many democrats have not reached this advanced view of the ca.»e, and that such still feel greatly inclined to revolt at the preposition of negro suffrage in any degree but let us tell them that it is al ways wise to accept the inevitable when the inevitable comes. Negro suffrage, we 8ay, is inevitable, ami whether it shall be qualified or universal depends upon the promptness or otherwise with which the democratic party shall move with refer ence to it. The smith will speedily yield qualified negro suffrage upon the motion of the democratic p'-rty because, if for no oilier retfsc-n, !-he will son see, if she does not alicady see, that if she do not yield it, she will ultimately be compelled to accept universal ne^ro suffrage. Qualified negro suffinge yielded hy the south—and by this wo mean impartial suffrage, or suffrage dependent upon the intelligence cf the man, irrespective of color, as ig now tho rule in Massachusetts the unjro question trill hare b-en dis posed oj, aud the occupation vf the m'rth em rcjmlUcan tadieu) party wilt he gone Jorertr. Not one inch of ground wiil it have to stand upon and the country can once more turn to those material ques tions of public policy the right disposition of whith is fo essential to the public prosperity. It will be upon these ques tions that the democratic party will tri umph, and it will be by this triumph that constitutional government and our federal ejbtem will be preserved. If the south be wise, it will not wait, on this suffrage question, even for the motion cf the democratic party. If it be wise, it will lose no time in putting in motion the necessary machinery by which it will at the same titne save itself from humiliation, preserve its own self*respect, rid the country of ih* most vexatious duration that ever distracted ar.v country, kiil the worst political party that ever existed on the globe, and p..t tho Government Dihid in the way of speedy restoration. This mscfckiery consists, of coarse, iu conven tions to revise the state constitutions. The declarations of Fernando Wood ord the position assumed by the Chicago Times, very plainly indicate that here after the radical advocates of negro suf frage will meet with little opposition from the radical or "copperhead" wing of the Democratic party. In fact, it looks as if the leaders of thai wing of the parly would go the whole hog, and oat Herod Ilerod in conferring s cj^l and political privileges upon the glorious and irrepres sible Sambo We believe with the Chicago Times, that negro suffrage is inevitable. It is the legitimate fruits of the teachings and practices of tbe black republican party. They have approached the question slowly but surely, all the while educating tbe people—the laymen of their organi zation— to acquiesce in the progressive theory cf tbe leaders. That party is largely in the ascendant in the law-mak ing brar.ch of the government, and their lower to carry out their disgusting policy witL rtferc-nce to enfranchising the negro, is unquestioned And that they will ex ercise their power iu this respect we have dot the least doubt. But because the rad icals have the power to, and. will give tbe negro equal political rights wiih the white man, is, to our miud, no reason why De mocrats should stultify themselves—belie every idea which they have ever advanced and advocated with reference to this irsue —and become second fiddlers to Thad. Stevens, Grcelny, Sumner, Phillips, tl it omne genv»% for the shin-dig in which the negro, with a grand ho-down and double* shuffle, is to dance into tho possession of nil the pyliticnl privileges enjoyed by American citizens. The black republican party is a pro gressive party, but all their progress is in the direction of the negro Let them do their own "progressing,'* and soon they will reach their goal, and lese their spirit and their strength in the more potent esneti&tious from the forms of the 'beings' into whose embrace they are so eagerly rushing. They are in possession of pow er. Let them exhaust it. Then the Dem ocracy will ngain asewre the reins of The grand jury of the Wstrict nf Col ombia has indicted Sanford Con over tion of Ltoiots.

John Reagan, of Texas, formerly Pest Master General of the Confederate States has written a letter, in which he takes ground in favor of negro suffrage. He deems this action necessary in order to re-uuite the north and the south. THE DEMOCRATIC PAPBRI »f IOWA. Oat of the large number o? papers in Iowa there are but few that advocate the principles of tbe Democratic party. In the late cainpaigu these did their duty, and did it well. The Dubuque Herald, le» Moires St.* esman, Devenport Demo crat, the three excellent journals of Barn hart Bro's, the Leon Pioneer, Oskaloosa Conservator, Iowa Democrat, Ottumwa M"er. ury, Fayette Union, North Iowa Times, Dubuque National Demokrat, Council Bluffs Bu^le, Sioux City Register Burlington Argus, Washington Democrat Newton Banner, Bentonsport Signal, and Keokuk Constitution, all did their part well. Like the "old Guard" at Waterloo they have fallen fighting for the Empire, of Truth, Reason and Law und like the Old Guard, we trust many of them may live to see the Kmpirc restored. Few can appreciate the magnitude of the labors performed by the#e journals. They have had to meet in battle tuore than seven times their number. They have contended against prejudice and perse» cution of all shades and depths, many nf tbem with but small means and an exis tence whose tenure is but brittle, they have all sacrificed every personal consid eration and have foucht. with *i*ttal bra very, the unequal battle The fifty thous and democratic voters of Iowa should not forget these, their champions and defen ders, who have borne the heat and burden of the day, and come from luu battle, ready for another when the "long roll" shall sound.

REMOVAL OF I KDRRU OPFICB NOiillKKS, We are glad to learn that is the intention of the Administration to effect the imme diate ir-moval of every man holding a fed eral office, from the highest to the lowest, who is opposed to the restoration of the Union. The holding of small country Post offices may appear a matter of but little importance iu the estimation of many bu in the hau ls of an unscrupulous pol itical party they me potent for evil. We are satisfied that not on* half of the doc uments sent out by the Conservative Union organizations have ever reached their des tination, and more especially is this so in tbe eniiill country offices where their isola ted position and limited amount of mail matter gives the Post Masters a better op portune. to aseeitain its character and confiscate it. During the late contest in this Country poders were sent from the Untos office to the different offices in the county, but we have yet to learn that one was ever posted up but let a radical sheet send out a poster announcing a radical rally, and every Post office is forthwith decorated with them. Therefore, we say let every radical Post Master be at once removed even if Ins salary is not $5 per annum. Let our Conservative friends take immediate action in this matter and reemmend a suitable person to fill tbe place in their neighborhood. Now is the time to get ready for the next political con test. We have a big battle to fight with in the next, two y^ars and let us lay hold of uvery political weapon in our reach.— There has already been too much delay in this matter. The result of the late elect ions was in a measure due to this delay. Tbe President in the onset declared that no man should hold ofF.ce under him un less iu favor of the policy of bil adminis tration. This excited the ire and made ac!:vf wvrUlng er,ercHea of th* nlfiea hold ers while the President left them their official position as an entrenchment be hind which to fight bim and bis friends. has discov ered three terrible destructive engines tbe first, a three-barrelled air gun, firing one thousand bullets per minute, the dropping from a hopper, without in termission, in tho gun of the killing THE FIRE HERO And I don't think that I ever shall get to take it as a natter of course, sir—tak ing it coolly is out of tbe question. Here we are living about as exciting a life as men can lead—always on duty, and ready at a moment to have a set-to with tbe worst fire that ever broke out. No I shall never get to take it as a matter of course for it s dark, rush and excitement, and 1 love it, sir. Flash comes the news to us by telegraph, most likely out comes the horses, there's ,i light put to the ready trimmed fire, and then with a train of sparks flying out behind us, as the fire rears, and the steam's getting up, away gallop tho horses. Ay, it's "Hi I hio I hallo I" and they clear the road for us and away we go full gallop down the streets, with the horses' hoofs striking lire, the crowd shouting, and the running mob increasing at every step. There's something in it that warms one's blood and as to the danger well of course it's dangerous but when we feel that we are doing our duty, and know what*s before us, why, somehow we don't remember Two engines were there, and there were people burning to death wbile above the shouting of the mob and clauking of engines hard at work, you could hear the awful cries for help. Now, don't 3on suppose that I'm proud of all this I'm going to tell you, because I in not. Now, if you were to dash in and t:V, I.j ..„ janbi It wold be brave and gallant, because you would have done it out of true compassion for a suffering fellow creature but then with me its different. I'm paid so much a week to save life and property from fire con sequently I only das what's my duty to do. I ran up the court, axe in hand, and soon see n the state of affairs. One house was in a blaze from top to bottom, and the flames bad worked iuto the next, nnd were attacking the one opposite, while with their escape regularly cut off, there were about half a dozen people at the upper windows of the same house, and no way of getting iu tbeui. Tbere was no back door to the place, being in one of th use crowded city places while the door in front and stair-case were now fast get ting into a state of glow, off which the water sputtered and steamed without making any impression. There was no time for tbe ladders or anything else but tbe sheets, ami them we gut stretched out for the people to jump into, but, poor things! they dared not, and what to do I could not tell. There was the fire blaxing up higher and higher, and lighting up two of tbem old city churches that you sec lost down these old courts, and looking as if they'd been put there out o' tbe way because people didn't have any use for them now. They were lit up and glowing, and the pigeons that lived up llu-ro scared and llying round and round the fire there was the rush and roar of tbe wind a(oi:g tbe court as it set towards the fire and there were the flames leaping up, the clouds of sparks rising, tbe clouds of smoke rolling away, and the cracking sputter of the slates as they flew with heat, and then rattling off into the court beneath, and smash upon the pavement. Every uow and then came a louder roar and a cash as a rafter or a beam fell in, and set the sparks up in a whirlwind. And there all the time were these poor creatures uttering the wildest piercing shrieks for help that you ever heard. Now, I've heard so much of that sort of thing that you'd expect I shouldn't mind it, but 1 do though and as I said ahont. the (ires, I don't tkink I shall ever get to take it as a matter of course, for there is something very awful in seeing fellow creatures strong and hearty, and yet dying before your eyes, and yru not able to save tbem. Bui I second 172.8Ch) was not bul is sim ilar, but tr.ouuted on wheels and tha third is a steam locomotive, discharging 21 lb. weight projoctil«s psr men hours, iu if but idle all this time—not time it will beat second, and onpable twenty four one man wae killed every a bit of it, for every minute's worth some thing at a fire, and if you give too much you. Under thw circumstances the first thing was to save life, and whilst them as had the branches did the best to keep the firu back from theaa at tbe third floor win dow, I got hold of a rope, and in at th# bouse opposite, and made my way ap •tsirs to the third floor, which, like the •et of the place, was nsed as a ware house and crammed foil of packages. Being a strange house, it wasn't easy to find your way, and opposite to the room where the my the danger but go at it in earnest. Now there was only last week, sitting as 1 was waiting for a call, tbere it was at last, late in the night when the streets were clear and away we tore at some thing like a pace. Oxford street, Holborn, down the bill, up Skinner and Newgate street—whoop and away at full gallop, with the horses enjoying it, bless you, and lashing out till it's hard to say whether they didn't fly more sparks than the fire under tbs boiler. We wanted no more instructions, for there was the red glow on ahead, and as we got nearer we could al most see tbe sparks and at last we did see them come pouring along with the smoke, and being a heavy, hot night, hanging like a thick star spangled cloud just over our heads. was aad as it hap pened so late, there was not so many peo ple as might have been expected but as soon as I got there I saw that something particular was the matter, and tiiis is what it was. The fire was in quite a narrow court where they couldn't get the escapes, poor things were helmet, how they did shriek for help. Just then I looked down at the depth, and caught sight of one fellow standing below with a the window. short ladder in his hand, which might have been of use if the pjor things had been in the first floor and then I made ready to throw my rope across, when just as I was ready to let go, nnd then going to try nnd catch it, How that ladder did bend so that I thought it must give wny, and me go crash into the court but it diiln't, and the next moment 1 was in the window of the burning use, with the tremb ing woman clinging to me. "Now, then,-' I says to one man, "you can creep across,'1 and I pointed to the ladder. "I can't leave my wife," he says, hold ing a half-fainting w.rtnan against tbe window, where the smoke wasn't quite so dense. "You'rsa tramp, you are,*' I thinks and then I hauls more of the rope, and makes it fast around the poor woman's waist, when we laid her on t'.ie ladder and the other side hauled, and we held on to the rope at this end, and so we got her half across, when she slipped off the lad der, und hung right, over the court, while tbere arose a regular shriek of horror.— But there were people, you see, at each end of the rope, aud we loosened aa the other hauled, and ec they soon had her in at the other window, though the rope was so tight that it must have hurt tbe poor tbing terribly. Then they loosened tk« rope agaiir, we seut another woman over, and she was insensible with fear, and Wo got her over all right, though abe, too, slipped on the ladder. Then thero were two little girls, one after another, and it was sad to see how they trembled and shook—too much frightened to cry, as well thry might be, for the heat was awful and 1 know that another qworter of an hour would fiud tbe room we were in red hot. We got another over—a young man— and he was dragged over, too, for he dare not try to crawl across, and I suppose to a man that ain't used to such things, to creep over a place like that, all those feet over the pavement, and when you've been frightened to death nearly by waking out of your sleep to find the next place on fire., is rather Irving, and now there was only that chap whose wife had been sent ever first, and who had worked all he could to help me and another terribly cowardly chap, whom I bad quite a set to with to keep back, so to save women and children first. And now this chap, at I have spoke about, made a rush to get at the ladder, and he was in such a rrid fright that 1 don't bwlieve he would get over safe, and besides I knew there was tiiue for us all to get away, it things were done quietly so, considering as it wasn't bis turn, I "Let him all go man. 'Tain't his turn," now huddled together at one window, for the fire was gaining on them, so they were soon helped they wouldn't want any. •'Crash! crash Didn't let my little axe play around the sashes of that win dow, and so3n had a clearance, for it was nailed up, and then when the poor things heard me, and saw tbe a time one can't a thought struck me, and I let the coil o^ rope fall down into the court, and but one end as I kept hold of, and then when the poor things saw it let down they shrieked again, nnd one of them fell back from "Tie on the ladder," I shouted, and some of you come up, and one of my mates soon tied the rope to one end of tbe rounds, and then with two or three more run into the house, while I hauled away till I got hold of the bottom of the ladder, for they sent the heaviest end up first, and then dragged it in at the win dow, and balancing the other end up, con tinued to push it across nnd iato the win dow of the other bouse across the court, and so made a sort of a bridge, only it all askew, for the houses were oot quite opposite to one another. Just a» I'd done this, in comes my mate with two more men, and I sets tbem to work to bold the ladder, while 1 ok hold of the rope, and then made ready to crawl across on the thin hi idge I'd ringed up It was for life and death or 1 wouMn't have ventured to the slight bending wood for though a laider set nearly upright may be strong enough, it makes it a deal weaker to lay it down level and then go and eraw! across it. 1 knew how it wo'd be, though, so I tied the rope round my body, and male my mttn hi eh the other end round u big hook in the Wall, us«d for a pull?, b.. that in the evMil of a fkll, tbe rope held good, I shouldn't have be having made that unless want light shining them on him but tbere was no time to lose. I made tbe rope fast and got him on to the ladder, with the fl imes darting up tbro' the rounds and burning bis hair and then I shouted to them to haul and haul and they did, with n.e trying to steady him with my end of ihe rope but before he was quite across something went snap, iny own salvation w :s partly gone. Just then the flames were Wafted on one side, and I I 'I hm liuit i»i« unit in the ladder, too, to keep it Meady, and then there I was s« rambling acro«s, with the ladder bend ng ai.d quivering, and the crowd underneath hurrahing and clapping their bands just as if I was doiug a bi of Blondin to please them. hel him back for the married man to go was my old enemy, the fire, being reveng first to his wife, when the oth»»r one almost shrieked out with rage and fear. first,'' says the "I'll wait." married I nate like. says, rather obsti "Over yon go I" Andateuch interfered with, and my plans so far, 1 didn't altered.
