We are livinn to-day un der a ruler who was not elected ; the Depsrtments of the Government are uresided over, and bppoiotments to of' fice are made by mon who receive their authority irom that man; a Justice of nur ln'ehext court has bejo appointed by him to a life office, though not yet confirmed : the interests of labor, of commerce all interests of the coun try are iu the hands ot a ottirco who, as most of us believe, does not right fully hold his office. A nd ret a ses sion of Congress has nearly passed, and do IleDsesentative has suggested means of righting the wrong by legsl procet-s.

' fChtaaga Tlaea.1 , , ., The maxim which tella us to apeak no evil of the dead can not be justly construed aa a prohibition upon speak ing what is true. To speak truth is not; to speak evil. When a strong character that baa left ita impress up ou evcuts disappears from among na it is the good ot society, which demands that the truth shall be spokeu of the evil as well as of tbe good which was manikstcd in that charaoter. Th. Jays when dead men were canonised aud set up aa demi-godsto be worship ed by the living, ate happily paat, save io those Oriental countries which pre sent the sirauge phenomena of an ar rested civilisation. It is the peculiar. ty of every advancing civilization that it tcuds not to the - adoration of dead heroes ; but rather to a free and not reverent analysis of that which in the eyes ot their generation made them bo roic. For civilization advances not by any apotheosis ot tho pais tor its actors ; but by realizing the fact that the deaths of great leaders, like the con clusions of eras, are the gtagoi by which society moves onward and up ward. . . -. .. -i ' .:. ' ' As tho Times said yesterday, the death, of Oliver i Morton marks the end of an episode in American history the episode of "the bloody shirt." But its significance goes, also, muob farther. It marks the particular time when the political character of Ameri ca underwent a perceivable change took a new step iu the grand march of progresa. 1 1 Under the peculiar circumstances of his career. Mr. Morton stood forth aa one ot the atrongest characlera that our political history has produced. II. was not a man of much learoiug. U. was destitute of the culture aud men tal training which are the concomitants of true statesmanship. Ueaevermam tested any (treat breadth ordepih of political under-Handing ; held no po litical views looking to" consequences beyood an immediate personal desir. and betrayed no cuidxnee of convic tion founded io fixed principles or careful generaliiationt. He was not a statesman in tbe better meaning of the word. He was a partisan chief. Na turs endowed him with tba facultia aod -character beat fitted to lead m.o by tb. control of their paasioos and prejudices, in a period when exciting events tended to wholly subordinate their reasooing to their emotional as tute. It ia aaid of him by aa admirer that h. was bold, determined, pnaitivs aad dogmatic, fierce in hi re sentments, bitter ia his deaaociatioaa. intolerant in hie opposition, strong i. his prejudices, extreme in his polieirs and aggressive always. It ebotld be added, he was uo-'Crupuloua ia his methods. He did cot measure by any accepted ataadard of morals th Rwfaae which b. employed to aaia his end. For the eorrupiMt. sad degradation ot oar poliiieal Ii . reaultieg aa a natural co.se-qar.r4 J tk leathsom. spoil r-ystem he cared not, so thst tb. brib rry power of cdfitr-giviag cOuld t ed to -promote bu rmoal aims and. gratify hie Ore taniaa Tngttc. Thus iy the enurmoat tare a eWr aotar essentially bad, h. Ts enabled, ow under th. circumstance, ot tu tim( i to make ' himaelf autocrat ot hia pat 1 "' ty, aad virtually dictator of th moat " vawis. polioiea of tovrnnest whtajt matBUinad hv IotoB aa ortaniaed hlt 1 ia th.

Whatever hia personal character, dii. ferent couditiona and ciroumstanees will produce a jdiffegeBt politioal ebar- . : aoler. Society in hi time will not be , ; the time that it was io Mortoa'a tint. -Politically, he will be the produetof , the oircumstances which bring him to , the front, and not of the ciroumstanoas : which brought Morton to tbe front. : His sppearai ce will msrk both a change aud aa advancement of politioal opin. ion which tbe death ot Morton ha contnouiea to nasien. ' n. win re jaw- -sent at leaat in some decree tbo Bspi rations of men toward a living future, a. . . w wbereaa Morton represented only their " prejudices and bates w a dead past. ' Diamissing all merely santimental "' considerations, and ragarding the event solely in the light of a nation, .low est therein,' the death et Norton b . therefore to be regarded aa a good ' rather than aa an evil. To aooiety tbo death or the life of any man ia a small matter. If his life be an obstacle liy the way of ita advancement to tbe bet tor future, it is better that he should die. If his death would retard such. advancemeot.it is better that he should . live., In the death of Oliver.
