FiOtTllIIUN INDICATION.
We publish in another column lilwntl ex
tracts from Houthern Democratic journal.
It U evident that tlio Southern Demncrats
are not n happy family at present. While
the Prtniiluit is doing all in his power to
placate the South, nnd bring frnternity,
peace and good fellowship lwtwcen the
section of the country bnt a few yean ago
at open war with each other, the Demo
crats tii Mlsrtlvttppl are indulging in law
lmstiPM to An extent that calls down the
maledictions of their own pre, and are by
the ears ia Texas over their domestic af
fair. This effervescence miy arlso from the
leaven of pacification which the President
has Introduced into the Southern loaf, and
leudtogood. At all events we propone to let
the readers of the National KErunLiCAV
nee what Issaldanddone'thronghtheSonth,
eo far as we can, that they may Judge for
themselves of the progress that is being
mide on the rood to future national unity.
We greatly desire to see thi end aimed at
by the President fully realized, but we pro
pose to furnish the probabilities and Indica

which induced this nrtide might fe consid

Considering the number of men engaged
in politics, and tho temptations to which
they ore subject, it is fair to say that there
tsnocl.t&sof people in any ngc or country
who are more honest. Iwk at tho aoen
thousand newspapers of this country; four-
fifths of them arc political, nnd their editors
and managers ore politicians. Yet few of
them make money honestly or otherwise;
in fact, very few men ever made money in
politics. Generally it Is a losing business
financially.
Wo hope the man who mode the remark,
nnd others who think like htm, will reflect
on whut wo have Raid and ceaso to stigma
tize so unthinkingly tho HWng and the
dead.
GKEKM1ACKS THE HA. lOH OV TI1K
COUNTKY.
The question which now deeply agitates
the country is how Its business Interests arc
to be rescued from the paralysis that has
settled upon them. Statesmen and finan
ciers are alike absorbed in the work of de
fining causes ami seeking remedies. Tito
Hon. W. D. KEM.KYtof Pennsylrania, has
recently been lecturing in llontou on "Hard
Times; Cause and Cure," and treated the
subject cT pleasantly and cogently. e
extract from his treatment of tho causes of
hard times:

Tun Philadelphia Aym says thit the lAbor
Oreenbaek coatltlou In Pennsylvania Is rap
idly asfliiailng unexpected proportions, but be
lieves that Its membership Is so cqusllrdntwn
from both tha greit parties that tho renult of
tho HUte election will not be materially af
fected. There Is no choice for Governor or
legislature this yetr In Pennsylvania, and
how the eholco of a Judge or Attorney General
can aflVct the question of !alor In any respect
we are at a loss to know. Next year will bo
the time to make the effort, if Imleed this
third party has any real strength.
WltHf Arkanaaawaa placated some years
ago the Democrats had the sagacity, umlcr the
Instigation of Judge Wilshibk and Governor
(Iabukd, to drop the prosecution In tho State
courts of alt the political and qiati political of
fenses lor which indictments were pending.
Both parties agreed to cca-M) that kind of warfare,
and they have had no trouble there since. It
was supposed that Wadk Hampton and his
confreres In South Carolina and (tovernor
Niciiotrs and his coadjutors in Txnlsiana
would have exerciMnl rftnatly sound discretion
and sagacious Judgment upon assuming the
control of affairs lu thoao States, but this sup
position appears to have been unwarranted.
An important document has been pre
pared hy Journal Clerk Smith, of tho House,
for tho Committee on Rules. Tho work has
been dono pursuant to a resolution of the
Houso passed at the last session. It is a com
pteto digest of all the proceedings from the
foundation of the Oovemment In connection
with tho choice of officers of tho Honso of
Representatives. This digest contains all the
rulings of Sneakers and Clerks on questions
arising In councctlon with the organisation of
the House, extracts containing all resolutions,
and giving a history of all contests which hav e
ever taken place In the election of olBcers.

Complaint was loudly made throughout
the length and breadth of the land that the

It came, it saw, it conquered and destroyed.

When, lo! and behold! A "storm centro" Is
announced in Ohio and Indiana. Yesterday
and last night ourtoo-confldlng locality caught
It In all Its fury. It blew, rained and poured.
Many were the curaci, loud and deep, against
Ohio's "form rrafrr." In Heaven's name, let
them keep their storms and their election
aqnabblcs at home. We want no more of them.
Tiik hotfiji are rapidly fitllng up, and by
next Saturday, tho dav fixed for the Demo
crvtic caucua, all the "unterrtfied" will doubt-
lev be on band. The fighting has commenced
in earnest, and hy tho time Sayler gets here
to-morrow the battle will be In the
helghth of its ferocity. That the caucus will
ultimately agree upon all tho names, from
the Speaker down to the Postmaster, there
seems to bo no doubt, and it may, therefore, be
taken for grautcd that at noon on Monday
next the Forty-fifth Congress will bo duly or
ganlrcd. The country looks to Its tl el itera

anxiety than ever before. It his all the

able language of disapprobation, from their
fifty millions of disgusted and disappointed
constituents.
It is now afsi'mfd that the South Is paci
fied because we receive no more telegrams of
outrages and munlers liclng commit ted there
for political opln ton's sake. There is a simple
way of accounting for this. Those Republi
cans of intelligence who formerly gave these
accounts to their friends tn this city and other
cllles at the North have, most of them, either
been murdered or driven out, or so Intimi
dated that they dare no more open their
in mi lbs. Having no longer any Representa
tives In Cougrcas belonging tothelrown politi
cal purtv, through whom to make kno)n
their suffering, the white Republicans con
cludo to suffer In silence until they can sell
out and emigrate. The correspondents of the
Associated Press In the South are generally
editors or reporters of the Democratic press of
the cities in which they arc located. Of
course, they will not report auy news that
would prove detrimental to the Democrttlc
Interests These interests aro now presumed
to le Identical with pacification, and these
correspondents are under instructions to send
nothing North but evidence of the utmost
quiet and good feeling between tho races.
We have received but little hy telegraph ex
ceptlug the Ciiisolm tragedy and the at
tempted assassination of Marshal Pi'RNfll, of
Texas, since the policy" was declared,
to indicate that the Southern people
of all parties, races and colors were not
entirely and wholly pacified. Hut now that
Southern Republicans begin to appear hero to
attend to their business before Congress the
coming session, we learn the bottom facts with
regard to the manner of the purification of the
colored Republicans la certain sections. We
have been Informed of a number of murders
th.it have Wen committed In tho name of pad
fieation of which no mention has been madoln
tho Democratic Southern press. It Is scarcely
necessary to say that there ia no Southern Re
publican press left. These facts at count for
tho entirely "utmuimous" pacification in the
South.
