The administration partj is beginning to discover the rapid progress of the Liberal movement In the lower House of Congress yesterday a member named Sargent, a Granter, spoke of the trait ors of the Cincinnati Convention." He stood np in the face of the country and proclaimed that the administration had made itself illustAous by restoring peace' throughout the South." We do not hap pen to know what Mr. Sargent's idea of peace is, but it may probably resemble that of the devil when be proposed that the Savior shpuld fall down and worship him. The peace that Grant has given the South is written on prison walls, where his victims have pined for months, and upon the rocks of mountains, where, flying from the bayonet and the bastile, the poor people of Carolina have left the blood of their mangled feet. Ia the suspension of the habeas cor pus peace? Is it peace when the negro population are solidly arrayed against the whites, and by perjury cause hundreds of innocent people to be driven into the jails, indicted, tried, con victed and punished. Is it peace when armed soldier scour the country and drag the poor farmers from their homes and march them through the streets and along the highways like so many cattle? An everlasting curse descend on such a peace as that. Mr. Sargent certainly was reared in a school that never reared a great man, and though he may not be a military character, he seems to have drained to the bottom the nectar cup of armed authority. Down his throat it went like a winged rapture, And whatever his previous opinions may have been, he be came a transformed ass, seeing thing: in a new light, and worshipping at the feet of a new idol. How false is the assumption that the administration has established peace in the South, all men of sense knew. Why, the truth is, anything resembling war, has been the conduct of the administration. But it is throwing time away to discuss such a question. Still it is among the mar vels of the time that a great party will go before the country with so monstrons a falsehood in its mouth that any one can refute it. The immense growth of the Liberal movement is driving the administration to madness. The best statesmen and journals of the Republi can party indorse it, and with the help of the Democracy will, or should, make it a success. Then farewell to the Dents, to all the kith and kin, to the military ring, to the robbers of. the Treasury, to centralization, and last, to Ulysses him self, marching through the gates of the White House with a brand on his brow and the fireless stump of a cigar in his mouth. POSTPOIIMEIT. We think there are stronger reasons than any yet suggested in favor of a postponement of our Democratic State Convention. On the first day of May the Cincinnati Convention will assemble. What its action will be, and to what ex tent it may affect the political situation, cannot now be known. It may or may not nominate a Presidential ticket. If it shall, it is not settled as to what the action of the Democracy will be. With three candidates in the field, it would become a question as to the course the rank and file of the DemocraU should pursue. They wonld inevitably divide as between the Demo cratic and Liberal Presidential candi dates, a part thinking it best, in order to defeat Grant, to vote for the Demo crat, and others thinking it beat to vote for the Liberal. If, before the na tional forces adjust themselves and the heat of the contest comes on, we bring out a gubernatorial candi date, may not he and the people who brought him out, possibly find them selves in antagonism? A Democratic candidate supporting the nominee of the National Democracy, might find himself confronting another Democrat, bnt one advocating the Cincinnati nominee. Whether there is force or not in these suggestions, we cannot too strongly ad vise the postponement of oar State con vention. Let ua nominate our candi date for Governor when the natioual contest has assumed definite shape. Tbi Washington correspondent of the Cincinnati Gazette says: "The consti tutionality of the enforcement or Ku- Klai act will come np for argument in the Supreme Court on the 17th instant The condition of the Court is strikingly set forth by the common remark in legal circles that the counsel on both ides will direct their arguments to Judge Strong, he being the only mem ber whose vote is not believed to be fully known ia advance. The ceneral under standing ia that Chase, Davis, Clifford and Field will unite in condemning the act, while Swayne, Miller and Bradley will sustain. If Justice Strong unites with the lattor, the constitutionality of the law will be afliruieJ by a divided court." Ah exchange says: Grant received cf tr, :r;iv in Rliodo Island. At the Ul ..lection Padcll'ord, the Radical can didate for Governor, was nrged upon the Grant platform, and his majority was 1157, while the Radical candidate for t ;tonnnt Governor is deleatea. inis shows a marvelous decline in the popu larly of General Grant, in a BUiall State, which can readily be covered with his office-holders No State has yet voted in which there has not been a most marked and damaging reduction in the Grant majority. Ok the eve of sailing Miss Nellie Graut partook volumiuously of ham omelette, which her father reminded her was very bad lor sea-sickness. Miss Nellie pouted and said her father was always remiuding her of disagreeable things. The noblo President thereupon said not a word more, but walked out and smoked. - ' New York city is apprehensive that a recent decision of the court of appeals will invalidate the convictions iti the court of special sessions and turn loose nnnn .noiptv all the malefactors now confined in the city jails; and that they cannot be constitutionally prosecuted and punished again for the same of fenses. ' Ths National Democratic Executive Committee is called to meet at the resi il.nra nf Mr. Belmont, in the city of New York, on the 8th of May. We trust th committee will co tolerably alow. It will not do to hurry. LATEST TELEGRAMS. IMISIOAI run 1MO0UTIOV, VII s. r. a a. Tiusanri courier, peolitla 9 k ld-r. STEAMBOAT DISASTER. Explosion aiid Darning of the Oceanus, Thirty Miles Above Cairo. EIGHTY LIVES SUPPOSED LOST. Partial List of Killed and Wounded. Cairo, April 12. The steamer Oce anus, from Red river to St. Louis, when near Brooks' Point, thirty miles above Cairo, at four o'clock yesterday morn' ing, exploded her boilers, blowing her works almost entirely away, immediately after which the wreck took fire, burning to the water's edge. - Pilot John D. Harris, of the ill-fated OceaBas, has arrived here. He says he had just come off the watch, and was undressed to retire. Rushing into the pilot-house, he foun4 his partner, Harry Tripp, wedged in the wreck. He tried for some time to extricate him, when flames wrapped them in. Harry begged Harris to leave bim, as it was nseleas for both to die. Finding that he could not save him, Harris left him to his fate, and saved himself by clinging to a stage plank and swim ming 'to shore. The bank was steep, and he fonnd several trying to climb it. All were utterly exhausted from the oold water, and near'y all drowned. Harris helped Geo. Wiggins on shore, but was so much exhausted that he fell back in the water and 'was drowned. Wiggins was a Red river pilot, and re sides at New Orleans. Ue was married three weeks ago. -Harris was picked ap by the John Lumsden and placed on the steamer Belle St. Louis. The Shreve passed down after daylight, and being hailed at Watson's, she first heard of the accident. Here she fonnd Mr. Fisher, who had swam nine miles on a pine board unhurt, save a lame hand and some bruises. Fisher's family re sides in Pittsburg. fere she also found the body of Chas. Worsliam, second clerk; Jules Dewolf, steward; Charles Murray and a cabin boy. Ail had life preservers on, and were badly burned and scalded. Their remains were brought here, and an in quest will be held to-day. One lady lost was a tight-rope per former, going to join Robinson's circus. On deck were two cages of lions for Robinson's circus, which were lost Mr. Fisher says their cries and roars of pain while burning were the most frightful he ever listened o. The Oceanua passed here at on a.m., and was hurrying to keep out of the way of the Marble City. Only two per sons who were saved could give any ac count of the disaster the pilot and car penter. They saw no one who was not scalded, bruised or burned. The carpen ter roomed with the pilot, George Wig gins; in the next room was Captuia Henry Worabam. Buth rooms were wrecked. When the carpenter left the boat he heard Captain Worshaia calling for help from onder the heap of ruius, which were enveloped in (lames. The Grand Tower met the Belle St Louis at Cape Girardeau. She had thirty six persons saved from the Oceanus, six of whom died on board. Tie second engineer died. The first engineer and mate are alive, and not seriously hurt John Meeker, Charles JellUdoz and John Martin are the names of the per sons aaved from the wheel of the Oce anus. LATER. St. Louis, April 12, 2 p an. The fol lowing is the statement of an eye-wit-neas who resides at Bloomington, 111. He was brought op by the Belle St. Louis this morning: I was in my state-room at the time of the accident, as were most of the paaengem.- The first notification I had of the ditaeter was a hissing sound; then an explosion followed which sounded like a full report of park artillery; then ;my berth, the upper one, fell in, and I went down on George Bourne, of Lyons, Iowa, whg was sleeping undr me. I raw at once what was up, and reached for a life-pre- server and put it on, Then I shut the state-room door t keep ojit the escaping stoam, and aaoeuoVa to the upper dock Hera the scene was a terriblo one The texai wa gone, and volumes of escaping steam, combined with the shrieks and groans of the poor meu caught in the machinery below, made my blood run cold. There was but little tim for thouitht. as the boat had taken fire. It broke out near the boiler. I looked out for a float, but could line none; I then took a state-room door and jumped in the river. Tha water was In tensely cold. As I swam by the boat the flames swept down upon me, as il anxious -- to pull mo- baok - into their power. A good many were in the water at the time of the disaster; saw a Mr. Constable, of New 1 ork, and his wife; had to floa,t between them; she was apparently very weak and about sinking; ahefkept saying, Come to me. George, I can't swim ;" last I saw of them they passed down with the current, her agonised, white face uplifted and raur muring, as if in prayer! I swam with my float aome dislauce, and shortly after wards was picked up by the small boats and taken to the Belle St Louis.' , The survivors are George Kingshelty, first engineer, not hurt; Pat Laving, watchman, not hort; Austin Joyce, fire man, not hurt; Lourini, roustabout, not hurt; Joe Gibbons, not hurt; L. Need ham, not hurt; H. Smith, roustabout, not hurt; Martin Ball, deck hand; John Rash, cabin boy; C. Sumner, cook, not hurt. Of the crew, died on board the Belle St. Louis,Alex.

'April 12.-r-The Herald's special from London says that during the session of the House of Commons this evening Diaraeli gave notice that be ahould interrogate the Government as to what course it intended to take with re gard to the meeting of the Board of Ar bitration at Ueneva. A meeting of the creditors of the bank rupt New York and Boston Express Company was held yesterday, and' an offer to pay aeventy-five cents on the dollar, made by the Erie Railroad Com pany, which assumes the debt, was ac cepted. . The Republican State Committee met yesterday and held a four hours' secret session. The committee has called a a State Convention for the election of delegates to the Philadelphia Conven tion, to meet at Elmira, May 15. Six lives were lost by the explosion of a boiler on the tug Davenport yesterday evening, and nearly forty thousand dol lars worth of property was destroyed. The accident was caused by the care lessness of the engineer and fireman, who were watching a dog fight on one of the barges. Both men were killed. Search for the missing bodies, which was suspended ou account af darkness, was resnmed this morning. Tha Herald's special from Matamoros, Mexico, of the 11th inBt., says a party of Mexicans recently crossed over at midnight to Edinbnrg on the American side of the river, where they broke open the jail and released the cattle thieves, who had been caught in the act by Texas drovers. The banditti and their liber ated comrades then returned to the other side. The sheriff and citizens of Edin burg had been previously notified of this design to deliver the captured cattle thieves, and in order to baffle the attempt of the bandiui, some of the citizens pro posed to bang the prisoners, but the ma jority refused, and when the marauders forced open the jail no resistance was made. The Texans have sent to the local authorities at Brownsville, Texas, a report of the depredations, requesting that it be forwarded to President Grant General Palacios, commander of this city, has been informed that a band of filibuster are being organized in Texas I oatenaibly for the purpose of preventing depredation by cattle thieves, bat realy for the aecret design of invading Mexico.

Is gas explosive? This has been set tled at lust iu the affirmative, since the gas fiend opened wido the earth under the Peabody Hotal yesterday. . Many persons believed that the tomb wherein old Gayoso was quietly inurned bad oped its ponderous and marble jaws and cast him up agnin. The explosion shuttered glass iu every direction, lifted up the floor of a clothing store about six inches, threw heavy iron gratiifajs six feet in the air, swallowed two ex-Confederates for few seconds iu the moBt playful manner, and gave every evidence of the power of gas. One of the getitlenien who drop ped iuto the cellar lost his hat during the atinosuherio commotion. Tho bnt was found in the rear part of the cellar, sixty feet uway, whither it had been drawn by the current of air rushing back to fill the vacuum caused by the explo . . 1 .J sioii. Mr. AIOUZO ureeuiuw, who urup ped in with the grating, is anxious to know how he got out, having no recol lection of the incidents following the explosion. Hereafter, citizens will be particular as to gas pipes being closed by gas fitters, and will not' altogether depend on the workmen, who by a little rorfllnssneas can at any time lay the foundation of a first-class earthquake in every cellar. The coal gas of the new company is explosive under certain cir enmatances: so is nuotha gas. These gaseous substances must be scientifi cally handled by competent mechanics, or grim denth will appear in every kouse- hold. a Laetare La Klejbt, Rev. Dr. Walk delivered an interesting lecture at the Linden street Christian Church last night. The subjects em braced in the lecture by the learned di vine were: "The Bow in the Clouds," "The Fadeless Bride," "Revelations," " Sam Weller," "Old Maids," " Mothers" and " Females." Mr. Walk's reading of the death-bed scene of " Poor Joe," from Dickens' Bleak House, was perfect and affecting in the extreme. The ob ject of the lecture was to create a fund for the purpose of aiding the colored monitor of the church in building a chapel. . Amaaeinenl. Memphis Theater. A large and crit ical audience appeared at the theater last evening to witness the Wyndhams in Saratoga. The scenes of the comedy are located in Central Park (New York) and Saratoga. ' It is full of most amus ing and ridiculous situations, full of good hits at American society, and taken altogether, is a most attractive but com ical farce. The cast was as follows: '.'Bob Backet," M. Wyndham; "Jack Benedict," Mr. Fitzpatrick; "Vander pool," Mr. Purselle; " Carter," Mr. Le- ccir.pt; Sir Mortimer, Mr. Allerten; " Mathertree," Mr. Ryan; "Olivia AI- stin. Miss Keyuolds; tuie Keming ton," Miss Goodall; " Virginia Vander pool," Miss Cowell; "Mis Carter," Miss Stanley ; " Mrs. Vanderpool," Mrs. Jordan. As can be seen, the cast was a stroug one, eacn cnar acter being a study, and splendidly represented. In the picnic scene Miss Goodall sung " II Bacio" in a manner that secured an encore and well deserved applause. Possessing a sweet soprano voice, well cultivated and of considera ble flexibility, she at once established herself as a favorite with our musical people present Saratoga will again be presented to-night, and will no doubt be come popular with our theater-goers.
