SAXE. There's a game in faahion, I think it's catled K uclt re, Though I've never played it for pleasure or lucre, In which, when the cards are in certain conditions, The players seem to have changed their positions, And one of them cries in a confident tme- "1 thiuk I might venture te go it alone 1" While watching the game, 'tis ft whim of the bard's, A moral to draw from the skirmish in cards, And to fancr he Units in the trivial strife Some excellent hints for the Rattle of Life, Where, whether the prise be a ribbon or throno, Tbe winner is he that can "go it alone I" When great Galileo proclaimed that the wnrtd In a regular orbit was ceaseleasly whirled, And got not a convert for all of "his pains, Rut only derision, and prison and chains " It moves, for all that," was his answering tone, For he knows, like the earth, he could ' go it alone I " When Kepler, with Intellect nierclnc afar. Discovered' the lawa of each planet and star; And doctors, who ought to have lauded his name, Derided his learning and blackened his fame " I can wait," he replied, " till the truth you shall own ;" For lie felt in his heart he could "go it alone!' Alas I for the nlaver who idlv depends. In the struggle of Life, upon kindred and friends I caterer tlio value ot blessings like these, They can never atone for Inglorious ease ; Nor comfort the coward who finds with a sroan That his crutches have left bim t "go it alone 1 ' There is something, no doubt, in the hand you may hold ; Health, family, culture, wit, beauty and gold, The unfortunate owner may fairly" regard, As each in its way a most excellent card Vet the game may'bj lost with all these for your own. Unless you have the cotirago to "go it alone I'' In battle or business, whatever the game, In law or in love, it is ever tho smne ; In the struggle for pouer or scramblo for pelf, Let this be your motto i "Rely on yourself I" For whether the prize be a ribbon or throne, Tho victor is he who can " go it alone '. " Political. MANHOOD SUFFRAGE IN OHIO. Speech of Hon. S. L. Hayden, in the Ohio Senate, Wednesday, March 27. Mr. Frksident: It is not my purpose to contmmu any considerable portion of the time ol the Senate by entering into a lengthy argument in favor of the pnssuge of the resolutions now before us, and upon which we are culled this day to act. I nni aware, sir, they involve, principle than which none greater have ever occupied the at tontioa or demanded mole serious consider ation at the hands of men whoso duty it is in their private spheres and vocations of tile, but more ospecitilly in their public and official capacity us legislators, to promote, by all the legitimate menus in their power, political science and human progress. 1 um aware, sir, that this proposed nnicn I meiit to tho Constitution of our State breathes through every lino and every word a new order of things'. I am not in sensible of tho fact, but iroudly conscious that there exisls in this proposed Amend ment to the fundamental law of our State no single element of that conservaiisin which lo day has a peculiar and special signification when applied to thepohtha of our country, aud when uttered by the rem nant of that which once possessed some le gitimate claim to be styled Ihe Democratic paity. That remnant, the represontatiora of which on the tluor of this Senate Cham ber still being the delusion that a w hite man was not complete in his creation until a negro had been created to be his servant. I know, sir, that this proposition to amend our Constitution is the national offspring of that other iieiitiiucut which so largely predominates among tho loyal men of the land, and which these conservatives choose to style ratliculistn. More than this. 1 am not ignorant of the fact that char.ge in the organic law of the Slate is a blow aimed at the root of lhat diabolical spirit which for two bundled years sustained and perpetu ated the most stupendous evil tolerated among men, professing to keep pace with the march of civilzation. I know lhat through the instrumentality of this amend ment the ax is laid at tho ro.it of tho tree. It is a seven hundred pound solid shot, aimed at the very base upon which rested Becurely for long centuries the whole superstructure of the Democracy, the spirits of Jefferson aud Jackson, for give me for the prostitution of that grand old name !) but upon which rests the wholOi BiiperstructioQ c,f the bogus De mocracy ol .1867, and when it strikes, that superstructure will totter to its fall. I think 1 can see the cause of resistance as displayed on this floor by Senators who would remand four millions of human be ings again to chains aud to slavery, to shackles and to whip, to a forbidden Bible, and to a concealed knowledge of the modi lot ial oflioes of a crucified but risen Re deemer. Ay, sir, Senators who would blot out the everlasting truths of inspiration, which seal forever the truthfulness of the doctrine of the unity of the human race ; for " (jod said let us mako man in our own im age," and " he made of one blood all the nations that dwell-trpon the face of the earth,' Democrats, included. I think lean see the fear that prompts the opposition to this tesolulion. The trembling, excited by the band-writing on tho wall which stares these gentlemen ever in the face, turn which way they will, and which becomes moro distinctly visible as theso resolutions near their passage. If Democratic Senator really believed that their adoption would give their party another lease of power, would place them in the possession of nil the nice fat oflioee iu which we of the Union party luxuriate aud grow healthy, and, you say, wealthy, then indeed, would discussion ot this question be useless. Why, if Senators believed this, then these resolu tions would receive a unanimous vote. The first law of nature, self preservation, Wool I dictate that course. .Aud who ever knew of a Peiiiooxat to violate that law f But' I must uot spend too much time over the in animate remains of the ( arty that still rests upon the exjdoilod theories of John C. Cal houn and Jet". Davis. If I have anything lurther to say concerning it, 'twill be said upon the same principle and for the sume reason that tho boy stoned the dead dog. When asked by a gentleman, why he did o, he replied, ' Well, sir, this wits the mean est dog in all this neighborhood, aud it you had known him as well as I. vou would join in stoning him, too ; every time I panned tins way be was always snapping atnie;'soI mn pelting him to let every doK know Ihore is punishment after death.1' Hut sir, I admit this is a radical measure, and kuywlt,g it to t such, standing out broad and clear, and well defined, overturn ing . .custom winch, for sixty-live years baa prevailed in my Stale, reversing that which was the fundamental law when we were boa, another star giving brightness to the banner of beauty, anil of plory. de stroying as it will by iis tuccv6st the or- a t it bs of to of of us " I of I are as the the to in ajid gnmzaticn w hich c'aims to have goven e I the country for eighty Jems, still, 1 do not i are to discuss directly the principles in volved in tho proposed change. And whyt Itecnuae I think it would he a work nf su pererogation j becauso I think it would add but little, if anything, to the intelli gence of gentlemen upon this subject, be cause it is no longer necessary now in the noontide of civilization, blessed as we are with free education, with light pouring in upon us through every avenue of intelli gence, and with the experience, dreadful and calamitous as it has been, ot years of desolating war. I say, vmdor those circum stances, it is no longer necessary to argue iu order to convince men of theiihtoous ness of this change. I rejoice that the day is past when thei-e efforts are no lunger re quired iu order to convince men who sin cerely desire to ex tit our country among the tuitions of the crth, and who earnestly devote themselves to the elevation of our national character, that this illy-founded and narrow prejudice, based upon color and not upon clmiacter based upon the degradation to which we ourselves, had subjected the black man, and not upon the elevation, mentally and morally, of which he is susceptible is sooially, religiously and politically wrong. It is because of the condition of the public mind, which is bo largely represented in this bodv. that I deem it superfluous to urge tho passnge of these resolutions by enterit g into a lengthy or elaborate discussion of the principles they embody. They have already received more consideration at the hands of tho poo pie, htivo been talked upon, aud argued more thoroughly, and are better under stood to-day by the groat mass ef our coun try, than thoso involved in any other ques tion that has ever agitated thepublio mind. And the verdiot of tin sovereigns of the land, with all tho accumulated intelligence of years of faithful investigation, will bo, then aro right, and must be incorpor ated into the fundamental law of the Stale, The spirit of slavery, which yet remains ami winch reltisosthe black man the right to vole the right to partii ipato in giving aim, and channel, and direction to the pol icy of tho Oovernmont he fought to sus tain, this, tho only dark spot npon tho oharacter of our State must bo blotted out. The voice of tho people vibrates throughout the land demanding that tho spirit of slavery which conceived and developed to maturity tho most inexcusable rebellion since the world began, must dio. There is indeed a very peculiar feature that marks the progress the recent struggle. Itouinot hnve cs capod the detection of tho most sitpoilicial or the least observant, that, as tho senti ment of tho country became tuoro hostile to the itisitution of slavery, that, ns tho policy of the (lovernmenl became moro clearly defined in opposition to it, tho greater anil more decisive were our successes in the field. Tho more rapidly tho people became educated in the determination to eradicate the evil the more surely did our armies march to victory. If this bo true, and it is generally conceded, tho lesson to be drawn from it is, that your march must con tinue to bj forward und upward, not back ward und downward. We must ndvanco, keep up with tho progressiva spirit of the ago, lor the m nnent wo halt, wo becin to lose power and othtrs will beat us in the rao of oivilizalion. But, Mr. President, inticli hai been taid upon this lloor to prove that Africa has no history ; that as we go stej jiing through the ngos, no signs of a oeltcr manhood, no evidence of greater re finement, elegance, civilisation, crandenr and power mark her career ; but that in all the i ast bho has lived and breathed und ex isted in a stalo of barbarism j lhat Africa never gave the world anvihing for which she deserves credit ; that tdie never di g up out of the complications of nature any new principle, and Hung it upon (lie world, for tie benelit and ennoblement of its pontile. Men have read history to but little minioso who make such declarations. Africa claims high and early origin in the scale of em pire. Tho recollections of history for four thouKaud years stand iu grand array, incon tiovertibly proving the assertions erron eous. hen Asia was a land of tents and shepherds, Greece, and tho Western Conti nent unknown iu song or story, Afric rose, the proud mother of nations, and the cen tral source of civilisation and social refine ment. It is held by the Democracy that the mere color of the Afiican places him under the ban of nations, and renders pre posterous the idea that this raoo could evor havo occupied a position of dignity, or con r i tin te d to the general improvement aud adva-nooiaoJit of the world. I do not purpose to show how the Afri- can hecan e black, for I know nothing about ; certainly not more than I know how we became ' white. Itotli tacts are mysteries equally great, and which I think cannot be solved. But l?t us take a hasty glanre at the history of Africa. This race need not ashumed of their ancestry. It is as bright as any of her oppressors, look for them where you may. Of whom do we boast os our ancestors? Well, ts wo are not responsible for our ancestry, we need not blush to own it. The Guilts and Van dals of Europe. That great philanthropist, Richard Watson, ulDruis that ' the con temned race ot 'Africa, as to intellect and genius, can exhibit a brighter ancestry than our own. Ihey are tho oMshoots, wild and untrained it is Into, but still tho off-hoots, a stum which was once proudly luxuri ant in the fruits of learning and taste. Africa could boast her heraldry of science aud oT fame with any kingi'om found upon tho vast map of nations. The same author whom I have already referred, says "the only probable account which can be given the titftfro tribes is that as Africa was peopled through Kgypt by three of the descendants of Ham ; they aro tho offspring Cushj Missaim and Phut. History tells that through theso Egypt, a morass, was cenverted into the most fertile country of the world they reared its pyramids, in viiitel it hieroglyphics, gave letters to Grtece and Home, and through them to us. But 1 hear some of my friends on the Dem ocratic side of this question object and say we received letters from Flienicia; " then t it not bo forgotten that Flitm'oia was an Africo Egyptian Colony, and Cadmus, its louuder, a Cuthite, and one ef the ancestors the African race. Nimrod, who was.tlie grandson of Ham, (not many removes off; guess he was full blood) erected in (lie laud of Shiuar the first kingdom uu earih. Ethiopia proper, lying on the south of r'tfJ'P. hi Africa, was also settle ! by a col. ony of Cushites, and to these is to be traced the present Ethiopian race. The Cushites evidently the origin and stand in history the taoe ot the negro world. They are only branch of Ham's posterity that are black. And they were black twenty-five hundred years ago, as we are informed in sacred history of Jeremiah, and Sock man, the Arabian historian, bears testimony the fact that the Cushites wets black long ages before Jeremiah wrote. The Cusliltes wore for a thousand years the most distinguished nation upon earth. They iuttiluted the first national pul.cn known history ; they constituted the priesthood literati bf Egypt and Chaldea, and .they gavebTrtbto the arts and Sciences. Thr.v were the authors of all that complicated machinery of gods aud goJJeestis, which I of is has come dowii to us in clasaio slory. For ten successive centuries they nlotioheld up the torch of seionce to a darkened world. This is not all. Behold the evei lasting architecture of Afi k-a, resisting alike the ex hiinlations of time am! tho ravages of bar barism ; these exist to-day, challenging tho admiration of ail men as the wonders ot ths world. Witness the pyramids of Egypt, the ruins of Alexandria and Jupiter Amnion. Look at the palace ot tho Ptolemies, the catacombs of Syeopolis, tho ancient capital of Abyssinin, w Iters forty pillars aud one hundred and thirty pedestals of granite are still standing in gloomy magnificence to tell of -what Africa ones whs! Sho Ima poured foith her heroes on the field. She competes with the woild when she prt,nts tho names of tho mighty Shishak, the in. vador ol tho Jews, the gieat Sesostris, the most ronownrd of all the Kings of Egypt, and the victorious Hannibal, before wlioso martini step the majesty of Itomo trembled upon the Alpino battlements! Iu the London Musdiui may be witnessed statues of Afii can divinities cut out of the imperishable porphyry anil granite by her own sculptors. Let tho physiognomist study tho close re semblance that exists between those class ieal heads and the negro of to day, and tho pitiful slander that intellect does not dwell there is refuted. lihmienhsek, the great German natuial si collected r. large library, exclusively tho production of negroes, and he says there is no bianeh of science or literature in which they have not distill giiished themselves. Gregoriit, of Franco, had a large case filled with work of negro authors, and he pointed to it as a refutation of all that could bo said against the tnoiital claims of Africa. But wo have present proof of their capacity to participate in government. On the western coast of Africa is situated tho A inei ico-African colony of Liberia with a government, laws Bud libor ty, modeled after our own. This settlement is rising in national reputation, aud is as suming political importance. Liberia boasts her commerce and manufactures. Law and justice have their tribunals and ndvncatos. Elucaiinn has her friend?, school and scholars. Ileligion her temples, hor min isters and her ceremonies. In a word, Liberia present all the grand elements of national glory and independence. What is the character of the negro in Ohio t Ho is a docile, law-abiding citizen ; industrious, frugal and not given to crime. It is (his class that Democrats fear to give equal ad vantages with themselves for Ihe acquire ment ol education, of emiiienco as jurists, of distinction in His hall of legislation, Mr. President, some Senators on tho other side have taken cocasiou to declare the pride with which they remembered the fact that they bolonged to the Democratic party a very small thing to be proud of in mv opinion in this di y of light, aud lite, nud activity, and intelligence, nud progression. I am equally proud that I do not bolong to an organization which will forever bo stamped iu history as tho aidor and abettor of treason. I am equally proud that I be long to the great Union party through tho iiihti uniciilality of which, the countiy and liberty was saved from tho terrible fate nf falling into the hands of traitors and the Democratic partv. 1 rrjuico that 1 nut counted nu humble member of the iiurtv (hat freed my country from the sin of slavery. rejoice that 1 um associated with t e men who have solved that gnat political prob lem with which tho womb of ages has been pregnant, viz : the capability of man for self government. It is a source of gratifi- cation to be among the number of thohc who have set up unoiher mile-stone that min ks the progress of civilization. Socrates said ' ho courted death becauso he' was impatient to be among the immortals." The members of the L'niou organization are not compelled to wa't their disentliraltueiit, in order to bo in the company, of the immor tals. Tho immortal names of our country are synonymous with the Union party. We are among the immortals now. I am proud, sir, that 1 cast my vote and assisted with my voice in tho elevation to the chief mug is. racy of the na'ion that groat and good man, Abraham Lii.ooln. Ho, who, by a single dash of his pen, struck the shackles from the limbs of four millions of slaves, und Blurted the nation on a career of gran deur, and glory, aud greatness, by the side of which the past is like infantilejweukness compared with full-grown manhood. Who shall give to Abraham Lincoln his due .need of praise? Impartial history will place his name along side that other great command ing churacter, revered as tho father of our country George Washington and s hns .been said of him, so, too, will it be said of Abraham Lincoln: "Ihe Hepublio may perish ; the wide arch of our Union may full, Btone by stone ; its glories may expire star after star ; its columns may tnolder and orumhle into ruins ; other names which adorn its annals may be forgotten, but so long as human hearts shall any where pant, or human tongues any where plead for lib erty, those hearts will enshrine the memory, und those tongues prolong the fume" of Abraham Lincoln. But to return, and I shall endeavor to be very brief iu what I have yet to say. "Lib erty," Mr. President, bus been said to be "the first interest of a nation." It sets humanity going, and keeps it going. But liberty is not enjoyed whore political right re withheld. The nation or tho State can not read the full benefit of liberty when a portion of its people aro prohibited from exorcising its privileges. But it is said the men upon whom wo propose to confor political rights are illiterate, and therefore disqualified for political duties. Thiargu: meiit takes for granted that literature in oesenlial to virtue ; but the history of the world proves the contrary. Some think a long preparation necessary. Bqt lot me ask the question how tan the annihilation of political rights and immunities fit people for the proper use of such rights aud im munities? You might as well, and would, upon the same theory, put out a man's eye lo help hi vision, or out off his fest to quicken hi steps; The woild is moving in the direction of enfranchisement. Eng land is' disturbed and agitated from her center to her ciroumfcrenoe by th great question. Autocratic Ituasia is elevating her musses, and there no longer exists a serf within her realms. Yet we in Ohio are lagging behind.

Give him tho right of stiff i age, a d yoti at once stump him a better man; you give him all the incentives that belong to manhood, and create a huncerin and a thirsting after a pure, su enlightened and a christianized treeduiu.

" Selected Miscellany. Death of Dr. Livingstone. The following official account of Ihe death of Dr. Livinostonk, fuun tho Ameiicnn Cou. sul at Zanzibar, has been reooived at Wash ington by the Slate Department ! Cotiset.ATR or tub U. 8. or Amrrtpa, ) . Ist.ASh or Zanubar, Deo. 9. 1866. ( Sin: It becomes my painful duty to re pot t the death of Dr. David Livingstone, tho celebrated African explorer, who, a I wrolo under date of May l, 18f.fi, (Dispatch No. A) loft here on tho 9th of March last for the exploration of the river Uovuma, and the region between the groat lakes of Cen tral Africa, of which, ns yet, but littlo is known. Tho snd intelligence was received here on tho Gilt inst., by the arrival of sev eral member of the expedition, from whom but little of importance oould bo elicited, save the fact of Dr. Livingstone's death. I am indebted to Dr. Kiik. H. B. M., Vice Consul, and formerly a member of tho Liv ingstone Zambesi expedition, for the follow ing particulars of this sad event ; and as his accompanying remark may prove inter esting, I cannot do beltur than give tliutn in hi own words : "Tho roturn of several of the Johanna men who accompanied Dr. L., ha made it certain that that distinguished traveler has fallen, and with him half of hi native fol lowers. His present oxpodi tion may be briefly slated to have been nu attempt to unito the magnificent discoveries of Into years, and determine tho limits and connection of tho three great lakes, which reach from 1 llli deg. south to 2 deg. north latitude, and flowing to the sea by the Zam besi nnd Nilo at the two extremities, but with an intermediate space as yet unknown. Such wbs the geographical problem. But Dr. L. had in view to effect the present enor mous East African slave trade, through pio neering the way whiclr might lead to lawful enmmerct.. To havo consolidated in olio the successive discoveries achieved by him self on tho ' Nyassa,' Barton, on the "' San ganyikr.,' Sponke, and Grant, on tho 1 Victo ria,' and Baker, on the Alhort Nyanza,' would have been a fitting triumph for ono who was the first to cross the African con-, tinent within the Iropical zone ; but theso hopes have been wrecked bv his untimely death. Vo iast heard of Dr. L. at ' N'donde,' nf the confluence or the Ntiynma mid .Niondu, Hero he met with kindness, but fuund the land desoluted byjhe slave traders, supph ing Ihe market of Zanzibar. Wo have information that he proceeded further to MaUka, a Miao chief, woo gave presouts ot cattle and food. At this point, the Indian Sepoys remained be hind, and have since returned to Zanzibar. ErOin Matitku lo Aluka was eight days' march.. Ou crossing a wide water in Canves, they followed the border of fho lake for several days, ami then struck inland. They were suddenly attacked in a bushy country, about D A. M., by a band of Mavito. Dr. L. killed the most forward '"llie attacking party, but whs surrounded and cllt down bv ono blow of a batile-uxe; Which cut htijf tnrough his nock. Beyond this wo liuvo iio detuils, for those who rcturnbd wore the first to flee. Almost nil who stood hear Dr. L. were killed, nlthoitgh they seem td have done cousidoruble with their riltes. This happened about six weeks ago, or ubout October 25. Tou now seo how very inengra our information is. Even with a personal knowledge of the lakes of the surrounding country, at least a short distance from fho scene ol this sad affair, aud a knowledge of that very tribe of Zatees, tailed Mavite, Agile, Manzites, tea., it has boon quite im possible for nie a yet to olieit anything from the impenetrable simplicity of the few who have returned, as to whore this tragedy took placo. That it was to the west of Ny assa is certain ; and whether, iu tho district we have already explored, or further to the north, is still uncertain. That Di". L. was killed by the same Mavite, as ho and 1 were among together, iB certain. Thoy would havo uttacked us then if they dared, but we were too strong for thoni. With such en emies, it comes to be a question of number ns well as equipment. Tho death of a few will not break their charge ; nud a small party takon unawares hns nc- clinnce. Only one of the survivors saw Dr. L. fall; but they buried his body at 3 P. M., when the Mavite had go!o. They took off all tho baggage and til the tipper clothing of tin dead body, so that not oven a note remains by which to trace the route.!' It is hardly probable that any further particulars will ever be obtained in regard to Dr. Livingstone's death, as the Mavite are a wandering people, snd it will bo quite impossible to itscuVtulii tlie particular tribo by whom Dr. L's party were attacked. . I have the honor to be, sir, very respect f u 1 1 w vour obedient servant, EDWAliD D. ROPES, U. S. Consul. Hon. W. n,8WARO, Sec. of State. , Manhood Suffrage. Annexed will be found a paragraph from the Ne-v York Tim in reference to the refusal of the Republican Logisl ttures in certain Northern States, to strike the word whito from the Constitution. Tho Timet is purely Conservative, and a rebuke coming from it, suchusgiveu below, is worthy of notice : "Missouri aud Minnesota, through thoir Legislatures, have alfirmed the principle of impnrtiiil suffrage. In Ohio, Illinois, and Michigan the Legislatures have refused to obliterate caste d m 1 1 D' t innn, by Ihe adap tation of their Constitutions lo tho altered circumstances of the country. These ad verse decisions aro inexplicable, in view of the action of the Republican party iu Cou gruss, and (he position it has nssmncd on the suffrage question. After enfranchising tho colored citizen of the District of Co lumbia, and forcing upon the South their universal enfranchisement, it is difficult- to imagine any principle with which the Northern States may justify tho --pro-tent disability ou account of color. Certainly there is no consistency in the course of the Legislatures contn l ed by large Hepubli can majorities, after the formal promulga lion of tho Bepublirau pelicy in the hull Of Congress. . If the party has any distinc tive prindiple', tho principlo of impartial suffrage must be considered peculiarly itp. own. It has proclaimed it part of its own.
