Consumptive Copperheadhm. i ., . Jn tLe orina of the year 1864 One of the moat memorable in tbe History 01 our people me uemocracj i iJle' rallied their forces and made adeB- perate fight for the city office. Th partj ip this part of the State had al- ready hoisted the name of Gen. McClel Ian as their favorite candidate for the Presidency, and tbey were anxious that . ttrtnrv at the tvt'isz election ahoold give him strength for the greater and more important' struggle in the Fall; Full tickets were nominated by both par "ties. The fight waB "square and manly No side issues were lugged in.' ;No def ceptions were attempted. The question at JaSue was, shall the war be prosecuted ? ntil 'rebellion- crashed and traitors 'punitbed, or shall it be declared a' fail ore, 'be Union armies " withdrawn from the South, the independence of the Con federacy acknowledged, and tbe proud name of the "United States bnmiliated jiu.the duatThe contest was waged I fiercely ly- botn parties, and "the result 'exceedingly "close. The "Union ticket for city officers was' successful by an . ataa a or a. I'm i.-i l.w rtt 197. '-Tha DftrnOC-. racy, however, enccee'ded in electing si majority of tbe Councilman. From that , time the party took the consumption and has been on the decline ever since.5 j In 1865, while jptrant' a, Sheridan's and Sherman's gnns 'were 'yet 'echoing through the land, and the armies of the Confederacy were surrendering all oveij the South, the Confederate Democracy of Evacsville became bewildered and panic-sir ickec, and failed to nominate any ticket for- City officers. "'Of coarse tbe Union candidates' waiked'over that track without opposition. 6 This, year, inspired with new life by i the differences existing between Presi-i dent Johnson andJCongress, and hoping to torn ihe Eight Hoar movement, the Liqupr" Dealers " influence .f and ,Tthe dtraignl Ojine itaiiroaa enterprise their favor, the Confederate Democracy went into the contest with an enthusi asm and confidence never' manifested . before. 'Patting three or four nominal Union -men and one' or two bonafide Republicans o i their ticket, and raising1 the cry of, 't No ; Party Reform," they made an assault on the Union columns ithat," under '. ordinary circumstances, ' ought to have been successful.. But their designs were discovered in time to frus trate them. The thorough exposure of their scheme by the Joobsilj put Union mechanics and Saloon keepers on their guard, and they stood by their old or) ganization: and . ' contended manfully! for the old faith. The . result demonstrates ; the - very low '' con dition of the Confederate' Democracy f OF Evansvilte. With Union men sup- notion that they were compelled to do so by the Jaws of their secret Workingmen's - Associations ; also because . the Cop perheads pretended to favor the Straight ' Line Railroad enterprise, and because they were opposed to and in favor of bonldering- the streets as their views could influence votes the Confederates are beaten, -nevertheless, by an average majority of 295 one hundred and sixty- tight votet worse than they were whipped in 1864. besides failing to. secure the Council, and pensioning their sickly pa' ' per npon the city as" was the fond hope of the leading wireworkers. ","7 """ . N6w the actnal strength of the Con- federate .Democracy ot iiivaosviiie may ;be ascertained by subtracting from the vote cf the ,?No ; Party ticket" at the 'last election, all the Union men who voted it on the Eight Hour,' Straight . line Railroad, and Bonldering end anti- boulder in g propositions, under the in pr'sssion that it was mote favorable to those enterprise's than the Union party. "We think cot less than 200 to 300 votes should be deducted from that ticket on account of these issaes and add9d to the Union vofciv-aaupon State and National questions fhey would," in all' probability, . if they have been honest in their profess ions of Unionism cast their votes with the Union party. This would foot np . tbe handsonfc Union majority, of six or seven hundred in the city limits, tVe are not surprised that those gum Were' not fired which were spoken of in the dispatch to the Cincinnati Commer cial -The defeat was a Waterloo Mon " ey was spent freely by the Copperheads, while less money was contribated and used by the Union party than we have er known in all the history of oar past elections.

The union of the two indefinitely en hances the power for . good or . evil of tboarf thusi. endowed, and ' jreBders their predominance a forgone conclusion. Responsibility is proportionate to the means and opportunity, at "command j for it ia still true: that, of those to whom mush is given, much is required,' .The intelfwtual and moral standard,, the gen eral sentiments Ta vogue, the njaterial prosperity, tbe nature and tendencies of legislation, and the .stagnation or rate of rapidity in the development of society, in all its aspeets, v chiefly dependent on . the disposition and Sorla of those Who bury those talents, or $nt them Out at ntere1' e 1 e-yU or. buse their su i rio . , . f i ViV?es. i j ir tn.w toa tc';v.i,0D s,i ,t t 0' sri ; -ivilc-", t'jmim9 otaer exceptional " peculiar ' "J J," c: i.rv .eia o-vt-r fi.ls to .-. fi;."TI:.t3 :xs tvranyt wiea not failed by revul . .j; r li .s n1 rii t'j-t 'v 1 a k'T.oud i J " .i--in aytn towards ' popular iW&tiOB wa ' s Si 'M ds--able pos.'.Io. ing is the pTOr" rtty to conservation of despotism tbat any irresistiDie growiu of the m .3pa in lntdlliffenje and ca-t pauity with the consequent demand of a necessary enlargement of free dom: of thought and -action suit ed r to the advawtageous exercise add increase of their improving facili tioais never attained in any other than a revolutionary manner. Popular power, however,' once recognized pro gress and education once initiated ele vation and approach to a common level may proceed by the ordinary processes of legislation and government a level in calculably higher than nature admits, than she has ever -or ever can evol'8 bnder class regulations. ' " " The perfection, the .productiveness, tbe slow or rapid developments of man; the late or early, attainment of what is called, melenial glory depends on the degree in which the means are within the reach of every one, of attaining a full and unrestricted nse of his facilities and their capabiliUea.' Every child untaught genius or ordinary as it may be every man who is unable ! or who neglects to employ his abilities, subtracts so much froroUbai momentum-of humanity, - of progress. 1 .Momentum increatet in a ratio equal to the power . appliedt' and the soeed is constantly accelerated by every step in advance. Suppose thought invention and material production were urnivertal or even as active among all other nations as in ours, wnat a tremen dous impetus, the .world would receive, and general conditions be ameliorated by an increase of means of supporting life in all its comforts and refinements. Ignorance is -always dangerous to tbe existence of the republic. A Cultivated few. 'with the masses of a surrounding community without the requisite etra- mentalities of cultivation, .is tbe neces sity of despotism.' It is the condition which sooner or later infallibly generates tyranny. It is inat . wbion is its in variable antecedent i Wealth usually accompanies education with its capacity and skill Tbsy become a class so sel dom intermixed by tbe entrance of their inferior as. not to seriously interrupt tbe development oi classic ideas, wants, predispositions and prejudices. Their interests ! lead them to cherish those opinions and advocate the policy most favorable to their undisputed ascenden cy. They control all the organs ot pub lie opinion, tbe politicians, the press and the clergy, with insignificant exceptions, and thus mould the public sentiment in their own measures. That the mental and moral perceptions of the clergy are even guaged by a measure so wickedly worldly, ; win, f no aouDt, be. vehemently Oenied. - lhey all preach tbe. same Gospel." . Aye, so it is said, bat we think not quite. It is as Wide in its applications as human thought and action, lhey may all teach tbat tbe wretched should live contentedly miserable here, because they ma7 be happy hereafter, bet that- we contend, is certainly no Gospel. As re gards the duties of mankind to' them selves, to neignbors, as citizens, as to their relations to the. immediate and distant of their kind at large, And through, them to nature and to God they are radically at war with each other, Notwithstanding tbeir intimate acquaint ance with the Scriptural letter, and tbeir pretensions to tbat of the spirit,' they seem to nave as little cordial agreement about its tenor in these, its oaly valuable characteristics, as other people. . .Tbe? are quite as subject to "moral insanity nndervsimi!ar circumstances, as those who make no claim to spiritual comma nications. Our pnly duty . towards the Supreme is through our relations to men. "The clergy are scarcely more it may safely be said no more reliable as tbe exponents and advocates' of the truth and 'righteousness, ondee all eircum stances, than other people. They have showa themselves no less open to tbe se ductions of powir, place, pelf and popu larity. than other sections of the com munity. How else is it, that wherever they have1- bad uncontrollable influence for eeaturies, the people are still, Sgno rant, debased, superstitions, and at the lowest stage of mental, moral and mate rial manhood, possible in an organized civilization? How is it that the States most ; pretentions of their .number, are tbe most despicable ot any, where the inhabitants are only retained in any thing take morar subordination by for elgn power, and in great part supported by tbe influx of wealthy strangers, to visit the' scenes and remains of an ex tinct activity and grandeur?. How is it tbat they are always found on tbe side of wealth, power, and the form of Sinful ness and oppression by these, prevalent in the locality where the? profess to serve the cause of truth and righteous ness?. Our design is not to represent them as utterly worthless in their voca tion. Even the most useless of their classes' . serve to .restrain . the unruly Tbey answer as embalmers of the body politic, inclosing some fundamental truths,' thus preventing utter disintegra tion. But the master Teacher, whom they pretend to interpret and imitate, preached practical troths, intended to implant true tifying " seeds of 4 new, ; active, self- preservative, growing life into effete so cieties; to generate a spirit that would clothe with new flesh and put a living spirit within the dry-bones of dead na tions; dead in trespasses and sins against truth and right, and therefore dead to all rthe elements of exalted manhood and a grand nationality. When did they ever earnestly urge upon governments a uni versal education of the masses, by the Government, as well as thexisting pub lic support of universal preaching to them, when it was not tbe policy of the authorities and not forced upon them by an aroused revolution? Have they ever fully done duty in this respect? Yet it ia certain that there can be no regenera tion of the world without the use of all the means that maybe placed at our J'st posal It was not intended that the na tions should or could be regenerated simply by means of proclamation, any more than that tbe world's intercourse and commerce should be carried on sole ly by donkies and gallies forever, be cause tboBe were the methods in vogue' daring toe apostle s time; i and tbat of the . fathers." Their "mission" has hitherto been a failure, simply because of negleoticg the nse of those multiply ing " means " with which, in the, ' nature of things," it could alone be and was meant to be accomplished. - The "spirit" can write nothing on an empty brain. It can only influence him aright who has knowledge sufficient for the occasion and the times. . "v . , 1 , That publio sentiment is moulded in the measures of the wealthy and edu cated by ; their- agencies, the press,-the politicians and tbe ministry) of -a corns munity where 'common schooling is not the rale, is believed to be evident from oar observations. V Upon ; these agencies depends the characteristics of the masses. If they are bigoted, intolerant and dis orderly, these and these only deserve the blame.; If tbey are liberal, tolerant and orderly, those agencies should be credit ed as the authors." If men of any opinion or from any quarter can live at peace without insult, among them, f with per son and property safe-from injury and spoliation, as is a. natural, and, in this country, a constitutional right, then the wealthy and the press may be consider ed republican and loyal to the Govern ment, and the ministry Christians not otherwise. If really what tbey profess, they will lose no time jn organizing sneffi-. cient school system for every mother's son and daughter of their people, ( as the sole security for the common peace and prosperity. -r , . The Southern authorities may see in the past fat and existing i ponditibns of nations, tbat which must overtake them and continue indefinitely, if they do not change their tactics; if thpy do not en deavor to ' exercise 1 tht rationally, fierce, despotic, nndemo,, and nn-, charitable spirit prevailing among them: It requires-no more than the wish, the wltfjabd IhSL.effortto 8ceed :In a;very abort space of time.

In response to a toast in honor of the officers of the Canandaigua, Captain Stembel, - who was received with the warmest demonstrations, said: Gentlemen, I regret exceedingly that I am not so endowed as your; worthy - mayor wiiQ-ine girt ot speech-making; butfc nevertheless, I ? must express the great pleasure which it gives me to ac knowledge tbe sign compliment that he has" been ' pleased to pay to my self and to tbe officers of the ship that I have the honor to command, as well as to my country and countrymen.

J l also take great pleasure in acknowledging the1 indebtedness we are Tinder to his Worship the Mayor and the Council of this good otty of Belfast, for the great courtesy add kindness they have done us, and for tbe enjoyment which they have afforded us for the enjoyment of a pleasant, profitable, and well-spent day, which has been de voted to visiting extensive manufacto ries, and rich depots, and certain public institutions . of :, this city.

In response to another toast, Dr. Young, who is, we believe, American Consul at Belfast, and several years ago was the . Republican candidate in this State for Superintendent of Public In struction, made a speech. He said he was exceedingly happy to partake of the hospitality of the Mayor and Town Council tbat evening, and he could assure Captain Stembel and the officers of the sloop-of-war,. in whose honor the entertainment was given, tbat though he had been over four years ia Belfast, and had seen occasions on which distinguished persons, including the Lord Lieutenant the Representative of Royalty, were here, he bad never seen more cordiality and more full and un bounded kindness of heart and feeling exhibited on any occasion-than he saw at present Applause. He was sure that it was uo formal matter, but tbat it was from the heart and spirit, and that it would be so understood and so received. Indeed, no one connected in any way with America no Ameri can citizen could be there on the pres ent occasion and listen to tbe words ot kindness, and encouragement, and strong approbation tbat had been again and again pronounced without feeling rejoiced. He thanked the meeting for the kind manner in which reference had been made to the straggle in which the American nation had been engaged, and to the way in which it had overcome its difficulties. Tbe dark cloud of slavery had been over America, and whilst eve rvtbing else was satisfactory, it seemed to be tbe worm at tbe very root of tbeir prosperity. Now they breathed more freely, though money and life were largely sacrihced. slavery was banished tor ever from them with a power that would prevent it from ever raising its head in any , civilized;-, nation. Applausa There could be no doubt that daring the progress of that great wsr there had been difficulties between this country and America, bat he trusted that they would learn from experience that the true course for nations on all sides was to preserve, as far as possible, strict neu trality. ' Hear He trusted that they would have a higher standard of nation al neutrality, integrity, faithfulness, and fidelity, one towards another, than had been practised beretoiore. tie was sure there was no one in America that did not wish prosperity to Ireland and pros perity to Great Britain, of which'Ireland formed a part. rApplaose.1 He be lieved the only way to promote the wel fare of Ireland was to engage in active industry, and. thereby tbe inhabitants would promote their own interests and those of others. : With respect to the conspiracy which .is now being broken up, Dr. Young believed tbat it bad its origin on our own soil. In h!a inter coarse with the people v of Belfast no man bad yet alleged tbat tbe American nation was implicated in the movement He would like them to try to pursue policy in this country which would heal those difficulties, and the American na tion would rejoice, and . bid them God speed. Applause. The whole affair passed off pleasant ly " barrin " a little spat; between couple of Belfast editors, as to who were the best friends of the North during the late Confederate war. Both claimed that high honor.i)-; . --. . . We are gratified at these manifesta tions in honor of oar gallant navy, which contributed so much toward putting down tbe infamous rebellion. MACHINIST.
