THE TEST
The sincerity of great and little Dem
ocratic organs will find that coming
events will bring out the true metal and
leave the dross to take care of itself.
They have donounced Grant as a tyrant,
and if there is any other opprobiooi epi'
thet they have not assailed hinTwith, it
is stuck away in some obscure corner of
the dictionary where it cannot be found.
Now it is contrary to all human calcu
lotion six months sincee ntirely possible
to defeat this bad President and all his
surroundings, military rings and all
nrt. nf rinirg. cabals and cliques. It is
possible to make a clean gweep Dents,
brothers-in-law, corruptionists, ana an.
The Liberal Republican movement is
founded on a calculation that the Dem
ocracy cannot elect a President of their
own party.and are so disgusted withGrant
and his administration that they .will
support any honest Republican to defeat
him. So far as the organs ot the Demoo
racy have spoken npon the subject, they
Iiom iriven assurance that they will do
- - - - t
bo. If Democrats have been sincere in
their hostility to the administration, and
are feeding the Republican Liberals
with no false hopes, they will aoon have
an opportunity of pioving their faith by
their works. A Democrat who would
not support the nominee of the Cincin
nati Convention it not dying by inches
to secure the defeat of Grant and his
administration. But we have full faith
in the truth of the Democracy, and have
only suggested the foregoing points be
cause we have seen in some distant
quarters a Democratic candidate spoken
of as a matter of course. It is, how
ever, a little premature to discuss the
subject at this time.
THE TWO BIDES.
The other day in Illinois masked men
went to the house of an old man of seventy-five
and murdered him. Abont the
Bame time a similar gang in Kentucky
went to the house of a negro and pun
ished him with great severity. Being
ordered to leave his home, he packed op
and fled to Frankfort for safety. We
are not informed as to the character of
the offense for which the old white man
was killed in Illinois, nor of that for
which the negro was punished in Ken
tucky. Here are two cases of outrage,
hut on different sides of the Ohio river.
On the Kentucky side, the beating of a
negro was a Ku-Kluz outrage, and will
be inquired into by the Federal courts.
Radical papers and orators will make a
handle of it for party purposes, and in
clude in one tremendous arraignment
all the States and people of the South.
The affair in Illinois was on the loyal
Bide of the Ohio, and though the mur
derers were masked, and to all intends
and purposes Ku-Kluz, the murdered
man of seventy-five years was only a
white man. This is not a case coming
nnder the Ku-Kluz law. That villaiooos
enactment extends only over the South.
The courts of the United States will pay
no attention to the Illinois murder. The
administration can make no capital of
it. But in Kentucky it is different.
That was once a slave State and sent
troops to fight for the South. If there is
a shame redder, and bloodier, and in
tenser, and scorches and blisters more
than another, it should descend upon
the cheek of a government that makes a
heaven on one side ef a river and a hell
oa the other.
C. J. ADAMS.
Mr. Charles Francis Adaraaa has ef
fectually disposed of his chance for
nomination at Cincinnati by an abrupt,
overbearing letter. In regard to it he
says:
If thecal! on me were aa nnequivoeal ene,
based on pontdenc in my character earned
in public lift, and a belief tbit I would earrr
out iu practice the principles which I pro
framed, then indeed would come a test of mjr
couraa-e in an emergency. Bat if I aa tn be
negotiated for and hare aasurances liven
bat I am honest, you will be so kind at to
draw me out of that crowd. .
" That crowd," is good for an aspi
rant to the Presidency. The letter is
cold, and has disgusted those who had
advocated his claims. His tone it about
this: " Well, fellows, if you want to
nominate me you may do so without any
pledges, and, iu addition, you must un
derstand that you compliment your
si lves, not me. Good morning. John,
show these gentlemen the door." Mr.
Fernando Wood stated the other day in
the House that if Adams should be nom
inated at Cincinnati, the Democracy
would bring out a candidate of their
own. He declared that they would not
support Adams.
AH IatPOEIAMT JILL.
Fernando Wod, of New York, has
offered a bill in the House, which pro
vides that forty-five millions of the coin
now in the Treasury shall be set apart
and placed in the hands of the Assistant
United States Treasurers in New York.
Philadelphia, Boston and Chicago, to be
lian.fl tn rornoraUons and individual
.,r . period not exceeding one year at
" v . . , B
irate of interest not !es than o per
for
atA. United Slate .eccritiee to be
giM as collateral fjr tbe loan o made.
c
An equal anjoant of legal Under pre
dicated upon this coin is to be issuea
and also loaned upon the same condi
tions. It is also provided that the dif
ference in the market value of gold and
leeal tenders shall not exceed li per
cent.; or if it shall exceed that amoun
the Assistant Treasurers shall reduce
their loans of coin pro rata. The bill
It is said, was prepared by prominent
New York bankers, after consultation
with bankers throughout the country,
jnnns DATIS.
The St. Louis Times publishes what
purports to be an IcUrview between its
correspondent and Judge IMvis on the
all-absorbing question of the Presidency
The Judge was wary and guarded in his
reDlies to interrogatories, but expressed
a willingness to support the nominee of
the Cincinnati Convention if he was a
strong man on a soucd platform, n hen
asked if he would support Brown or
Trumbull, if nominated, -ha replied:
" Oh. yes. if the platform of the Conven
tion was consistent with the oft repeated
declaration of either of these gentle
men. You know I should naturally pre
fer Mr. Trumbull, as being of ray State.'
Th Tribune thinks that if the ad
journment of Congress is delayed until
after the meeting ot the ,.rtuiaaeipnia
Convention " one of the severest and
most relentless quarrels that has ever
disgraced Congress would be indulged in
from that time until the close of the ses
sion. The Dad leeung oetweeo congress
men who are committed on the one side
to Philadelphia, and on the other to Cin
cinnati, is already apparent in both
branches, and the lines are being drawn
very closely." j
A committee to ascertain what Demo
cratic paper are fussing among them
selves about, might prove of advantage
to the public. If they all mean to do
the same thing in the end, why do they
not say so in the beginning? If one says
he may be compelled to support the Cin
cinnati nominee, will he not, in doing so,
commit a great a crime (if it be a
crime) as one who deliberately goes for
him from the beginning? Then, what is
the trouble?
A bill has been introduced in the
lower House of Congress by Mr. Fer
nando Wood, of New York, to prevent a
stringency or contraction in the money
market It is thought that a measure
looking to that end is important at this
time. - - -
Advice state that the South Carolina
cases are proceeding quite rapidly before
the United States Circuit Court. There
seems to be as a rale but little earnest
ness in the defense of the cases heard so
far. A number of arrests have recently
been made.
A POLITICAL EARTHQUAKE.
Caa the Awa-nat Elections Be Held
CouaiitmiaBaiiw r
A knotty legal question has been
started by a Tennessee paper, the Ameri
can Rescue, in regard to the Constitu
tionality of the coming August elections.
Here i what the Rescue says : '
Keen it before the people that the
Constitution does not authorize the hold
ing of an election for judicial and other
civil officers in August, 1872.
Keep it belore the people that the
Constitution says that " the election for
judicial and other civil officers shall be
held on the first Thursday in August,
one thousand eight hundred and seventy,
nd forever thereafter, on the brst 1 burs
ay in August nezt preceding the ex
piration ot their respective terms ot
service.
KeeD it belore the people that the Con
stitution says "the term of each officer
so elected (at the August elections in
1870) shall be computed from the first
Monday in September next succeeding
his election."
Keep it before the people that the Con
stitution says " every officer shall hold
his office until his successor is elected or
appointed and qualified."
Keep it before the people that all the
sheriffs, trustees, registers and tax col
lector of the State were elected in
March, 1870, and that their terms ef ser
vice expire in March, 1872.
Keep it before the people that in order
for the election of said county officers to
have been legal and in compliance with
the Constitution the ehction should have
been, held in August, 1871, to have pre
ceded their vacancy.
Keep it belore the people that every
officer holding the office of Sheriff, Trus
tee, Register and Tax Collector will ,
hold over nntill the next biennial elec
tion in 1873.
Keep it before the people that nobody
has authorized the holding of any elec
tion in August next, and that candidates
have simply announced themselves with
out knowing the time prescribed by the
Constitution when said election shall be
held.
Keep it before the people that no act
of the Legislature can annul the Consti
tution by passing law in conflict there
with. Keep it before the people that at the
next bieunial election in August, 1873,
the election will take place lor County
Court and Circuit Court Llrrld and
County Registers, as the prenetit term
of said officer who were elected in 1870,
will expire on the first Monday in Sep
tember, 1873.
The only answer to this problem is
that offered by the Somerville Falcon:
In the schedule to the New Constitu
tion, section first, we find the following:
" That no inconvenience may arise
from a change of the Constitution, it is
declared that the Governor of the State,
the members of the General Assembly,
and all omcars elected at or alter the
general election in March, 1H70, shall
hold their offices for the terms prescribed
in this Constitution."
The term prescribed in this Consti
tution are two years. Therefore the
office filled in March, 1870, expired in
March, 182, and a vacancy was caused
from that time until September, 1872
The new Constitution says, article 8.
section 4: "The election of all officers
and the filling of all vacancies not other
wise directed or provided by this Con
stitution, shall be made in such man
ner ,as the Legislature shall direct."
The Legislature, in accordance with
this provision, chapter 23, section 1,
passed the following act: "That every
judicial and civil officer eWted at the
election held on the 2(jth day of March,
18u, or since teat ume, or oeiore toe
first Thursday in Anrnst nezt, and who
has qualified or mr qualify, shall con-
t0 kold bigoffice for anfj during the
time for which te was elected, and unti
hi (accessor i elected aud qualified."

Harrisburo, Pa., April 'i6. One of
the most destructive tires tbat ever oc
curred here broke out in the Harrisborg
car shops a little before one o'clock last
night. It spread with great rapidity
until the establishment and several other
buildings were destroyed. A hotel near
the Pennsylvania railroad, the Round
House, took bre from the sparK 01 tne
enirine and was also consumed. The
loss of the car company i estimated at
over S200.000. nearly all of which i cov
ered by insurance. Over six hundred
persons employed by the company are
thrown out of employment, placing in
almost destitute circumstances at least
three hundred people. Ihe wind was
blowing very strong at tbe time, ana tne
buildings, which covered ten or fifteen
acres, being nearly all framed, it was
impossible to check tbe flame. It ia
thought br many that several of the men
I is one of the buildings were overcome by
e. . , jj
tbe heat ana smoae, caused oj a suuuen
change in the wind, and expired in the
flames. The fire was caused by a spark
from a passing locomotive.
Later Arrangements have already
been made by tbe car company to pnt
the men to work again who were thrown
out of employment by the fire.
