"'These' unfortunate elections' de-pl-ive'
President Johnson of what
ought to have been tkeNjhiefgloiy
of his administration the pacifi
cation of the douii'tryafter".the Jate
bloody contest. , It- ia idle ..to aak

These ore less subject to , the- con
trol of .Congress. -The steps .he is
understood to bo taking ito: resus
citate and maintain the:i Monroe
Doctrine, will warlnly be approved
by. this country. -
It would be futile for him to con
tend longer with the Kadicals in
respect to the South, and he will
best consult the dignity of his of-;
fice by letting his action cease with
his responsibility, against Congress.
There was nq appeal but to the
people, and '. the passions of the
war have not yet sufficiently sub
sided to permit them to judge with
candor. . .
The ratification: of the amend
ment is not a question for him, but
for the States. lie may hereafter
stand aloof from that subject with
out any loss of dignity, or of con
sistency. Against the unconstitu
tional expulsion of. the Southern
States from Congress it was his du
ty to remonstrate, but having ap
pealed to the people in vain, it
would sharpen acrimony by further
opposition: ' . .
Their elections, by virtually de
priving him of, his veto, have re
lieved him from all responsibility
for the action of Congress. iWhile,
therefore, he holds fast his oft re
peated views, he will show no good
purpose by an animated and ag
gressive presentation of them.
Candid co-operation with Congress
on neutral questions, and a digni
fied abstinence from pushing a con
troversy in which he is powerless,
is the. course which President John
son will doubtless think it wise to
The Times reasons in this - wise:
From the verdict Of Tuesday there
i3 no appeal. 1 The judgment rend
ered by four States a - month, ago
was held up as one likely to be re
versed. The argument has been
heard; the States have disposed of
the points in issue finally, and with
no chance of reversal. : There is noA
further room for doubt or equivoca
tion. The country indorses the ac
tion of Congress, upholds the Con
stitutional Amendment as the bas
is of Compromise,; ' ahci; explicitly
believes the Democratio party un
worthy of-its confidence. 7 i . .
Upon the result the Tribune

loyal. vote, an .in view of whatev

jorities. ... .
The Herald remarks:' The frener-
al result of Uialate elections, from
Massachusetts 0 ' Missouri, are ot
envhelmingly, in' favor of the Con
stitutional amendment. "As the I

tion vote secured in' both Houses

the 4th of March, 1809. , .
Tins is the' grand and all-important
lesson of these November elec-
tibns; , A lesson whi,ch the Admin
istration can not safely .disregard,
even if so inclined, and which the
States unrecognized by , Congress!
will do well to accept as their only
altertjatiye. The extretae Radicals
in the iiext. place- have been em
phatica'lly admonished in all these
autumna elections,' from, the At
lantie to., the. Pacific OceanJ- that
thir revolutionary schemes, of re
cqnstruction are utterly repugnant
to the people of - the North, and
therefore utterly impracticable. "'

ficant.verdict of the Maine Septem-
oer. eiecuon on . tno great issue
which1 is to niark the new denature
of this Republic in the fulfillment
its! manifest destiny. ' !l
"The Commerpial asserts the ques
tion at issue was the policy of re
construction, and the decision in
against the policy of the President
and in favor of that of Congres. The I
people have virtu ally ratified the
amendment, and they have virtual
ly said to the -South,' accept these
terms and come back to the Union
with loyal Representatives in Con
gress."' ' 1 , r ' ' ; '.!,
Congress, by admitting the-Ten
nessee, members,' have: shown a
willingness to affirm this method of
econstruction, and contact with the
people will strengthen thera.in this
conclusion. 1 It has also 6howri them
that tliere is a feeling in favor of
strong guarantees, from the South,
and if the South shall now turn its
back upon the amendment and sul
lenly fall back upon what it deems
dignity, there are men in Con
gress who will be stimulated to en
act severer conditions, or to reopen
the closing wounds made by the
war. , - - -'
The Evening Post puis it in this
igtit: lhe' Kapubhcan party, bv
these elections, retains power for
two years more.
'Mr Beecher said, verv truly, that
managed rightly, it might retain
power for half a century; but to
achieve that, or even to keep it dur- j
ing the next two years, it needs to
act prudently; to put its ablest
statesmen forward; to show that it
possesses . moderation as well as
vigor, and that it knows of other
interests in the country besides
that on to which all discussion has
fixed it hitherto.

returns coming in from the in
terior of this State genrally increase
the majority of Governor Fenton.
According to present appearances
will approximate 12,900. The
other candidates will be somewhat
higher, as the trading of votes on
local candidates will somewhat re
duce the vote for Governor.
The Assembly, so far as ascer
tained, will stand 83 Republicans
45 Democrats.

Saving for Old Age No one de
nies that it is wise to make a pro'
vision for old age, but wo are not
all agreed as to tlie kind of prbvis.
ion it is best to lay in. Certainly
we shall want a little money, 'for a
destitute old- man 'is indeed a sorry
sight. ' Yes, ..save money, by all
means,; Bit, an old man needs just
that particular lfiiid of strength
which yoing meii are most apt to
waste. Many a foolish v6unc fel
low will throw away on a holiday
certain amount of nervous energy
which he will never feel tho want
of till ho is seventy; and then, how
much he .will want it ! It is curi
ous, but true, that a bottle of clmm-.
pagne at twenty will intensify the
rheumatism of threescore. , It is a
fact that pvertasking the eyes at
fourteen niay necessitate the aid of
spectacles at forty, instead of eigh
ty. We advise our vouna: readers
to be saving of health for' their old
age, for. the maxim holds good with
regard to health as to money
"Waste not, want not," It is the
greatest mistake to suppose that
any violation of the laws cf health
can escape its penalty. Nature
forgives no sin, no error. She lets
oil the ollender for fifty years some
times, but she calclies him at last,
and inflicts the ' punishment just
when, just where, just how he feels
it most. Save up for old age, but
save knowledge, save the recollec
tion of good deeds and innocent
pleasures; save pure thoughts, save
friends save love. Save lich stores
of kind ot wealth which time can
not diminish, nor death take away.
Victoria's Five Daughters.
Queen Victoria has five daughters.
The oldest is the wife of the Crown
Prince of Prussia. Sho is destined
to , become the future Queen of
Prussia. The second, Alice, is th6
wife of the Prince of Hesse-Darmstadt,
whose principality has been
lately absorbed by Prussia. The
third, Helena, became recently the
wife of the Prince of Teck, who is a
prince without principality. Two
remain unmarried Louise, who is
in her eighteenth year, and Beat
rice, who is in her ninth. What is
to be done with Louise, now that
most of the protestant German
Princes have been ousted from
their petty thrones by Prussia?
There is only one protestant Prince
now available .for royal conjugal
purposes, and he is the brother of
theP rincess of Wales, King George
of Greece. Mr. Gladstone is, con
sequently, to proceed to Athens to
enter upon this delicate negotia
tion. "JJer proposed' husband is a
mere youth, who dances well, and
is fond of good cigars, and is toler
able good looking. He might make
an admirable clerk in a , millinery
store, but is altogether out of his
place as the chief of tho , spirited
Greek nation. , !
