SO SUR R ESDEII. Ever constant, ever true Let the Word be, No surrender! Boldly dare and greatly dr! Tliis shall bring us bravely through— No surrender, no surrender! And though Fortunes smiles tie few, Hope is always springing new, Still inspiring me suid you With a magic, No surrender! Nail the colors to the mast, * Shouting gladly, No surrender! Troubles near are all but past*- Verve them as you did tlie last—. No surrender, no surrender! * Though the skies be overcast, And upon tlie sleety blast Disappointments gather last— Beat them off with—No surrender! Constant and courageous still, Mind tin* word Is,No surrender! Battle, though it he up hill, Stagger not at seeming ill. No surrender, no surrender! Hope, iind thus your hope fulfil— There's away where there's a will. } And the way all cares to kill Js to give them—No surrender! Wliatdo they Propose to Do ? Democratic swearing we can un (.lerstand. Playing tricks with the American ilag, declaring unrelenting war (in the abstract) upon the new Administration, vows never to vote again, peppery pronunciamentos like that of tlie Democratic Committee, the bestowal of ingenious nicknames upon the President—these evidences of bad temper and bitter disappoint ment we look upon as quite natural and as tokens of human infirmity. But mere passion or petulance can not last forever, and would affect nothing if it could. Thus far noth ing of an alarming character has happened, except that Mr* Abram S. Hewitt has refused any longer to be Chairman of the Democratic Na tional Committee. Barnum, Sena tor of Connecticut, takes his place for the rest of the year—a warm man, and one who will generously take up the business of expenditure where Mr. Ilewitt, more or less out of pocket, leaves it. But what will Barnum do? What will his trusty cohort of committeemen, all in a more or less depressed condition, do? That is what we want to know. A fair consideration shows us that so far as the present Presidential term is concerned we have settled the matter. Bluster, threats,groans, scolding—nothing of the kind will alter that. Now we mean to be kin der to Mr. I). D.Field and to all who talk nonsense as he does than they are to themselves. Tt is nonsense ; the country knows it to be such; and all the blustering crowd of unstates manlike men, who have brought such discredit upon the Democratic party, know it. But we cheerfully admit that they mean nothing by their tantrums. And if they did, a more thoroughly powerless political clique never existed. The sober and sensible men of their own party are ashamed of them. Mr. Hewitt who at least wants to be considered sober and sensible, leaves them in the lurch, or under the leadership of Barnum, which amounts to the same thing. Gov. Seymour takes the de feat of Gov. Tilden so calmly that the malignant might say he was glad of it. He speaks well of Presi dent Hayes, does not appear to an ticipate any political earthquakes or hurricanes, and in the presence of the most merciless interviewer de means himself as a good citizen, willing to wait at least until his ad versary has done some blame-worthy thing before he blames. After due and solemn considera tion we conclude that all the Demo crats mean by their military meta phors and red hot rhetoric is that they will vote down the Administra tion if they can. Against this de termination we have not a word to say. Go to the people, gentlemen, if you please! Make up your issues! Denounce, appeal, argue, exhort! Hold conventions—National, State, district, county and town conven tions! Appoint committees—Na tional, State, district, county and town committees! Write millions of miles of appeals to the voters! Make hundreds of thousands of speeches! Squib, ridicule, and criti cise—do but tell lies—that we cannot by any manner of means recommend. Try conclusions at the ballot box; we are quite willing. And if you believe what you say, you ought to be willing also. It is our opinion that a large majority of the voters approve the course of procedure which has just ended in Washington. If it was what you say it was—fraud and falsehood— what a grand opportunity you have of carrying every. State in the -Un ion ! Drop the sword! Talk no moreof violence aud anarchy, which | can come only at your call! Try voting! But do not say what you do not think—that the country is 1 ruined! Because the country knows i a thing or two yeti— N. Y. Tribune, j Who will Recognize Mr. Hayes. In the midst of a great deal of talk about Mr. Tilden being the choice of the people, and predictions that the country will not recognize Mr. Haygs, tlie New York Herald takes the trouble to calmly analyze the situation. The conclusions deduced are well worth reading. A careful perusal of them will, tend to allay excitement and show that after ail country will not be so badly dis appointed in its hopes: /(Most of the great sections of the c'f.ilitry will be quite satisfied with g result of the Presidential elec tion. In tin; New England States the electoral vote, whose honesty is not questioned, stands as follows: Hayes—Maine 7, Massachusetts 13, j New Hampshire o, Rhode Island 4, Vermont 5; total 34. Tilden—Con necticut G. “Hayes being tlie overwhelming choice of the New England States they will give his administration a warm support. Going from the ex treme East to the extreme West the electoral vote in the Pacific states stands thus: Hayes—California 0, Colorado 3, Nevada 3, Oregon 3 ; to tal 15. Tilden—none. “Mr. Hayes will accordingly begin li is term as President with the con fidence and favoring good wishes of the Pacific States, which gave him all theft- electoral votes. Coming back to tlie great commonwealths which are classed as the Western States, we find this to be the state of their electoral vote : Hayes—llli nois 21, lowa 11, Kansas 5, Michigan 11, Minnesota 5, Nebraska 3, Ohio 22, Wisconsin 10; total, 88. Tilden —lndiana 15. “It is obvious, therefore, that Mr. j Hayes will lie acceptable to the West | and that an attempt to weaken his influence would not be supported by that great section. The South sets its face against filibustering or fac tious opposition, and counsels its Democratic brethren to give Presi dent Hayes a fair trial. That he will b" pretty generally accepted in the North is evident from tlie fact that of tlie 231 electoral votes of all tlie Northern States, Mr.-llayes received 16G and Mr. Tilden only 65. Mr. Hayes is the choice of eighteen Northern States and Mr. Tilden of only four. If the Democrats will cast their eyes abroad over the whole country they will look in vain for any section of our great country that will refuse to recognize Mr. Hayes as the lawful President of the United States.” Nasbv’s grief when he learned that Hayes had been inaugurated could only find expression in the following “Sam uv Agony “In the dust uv hoomiliashen are we. Ashes we throw upon our heds by tlie scut tleful. Hair cloth we wear next to our skins, figgeratively. Hair cloth we wood wear next to our skins, ac tooally, of vvecood git any one to trust us for a supply. Wood that goin about nearly naked wuz a proper mode uv expressin greef, for then vvecood go into the deepest kind uv niournin without ehangin our costoom. There be three things wicli are too wonderful for me; yea, four, vvich I’m blest if I know: Wat ! the Dimocrisy wanted uv a High Jint Commishn at all. AVliy it didn’t hev a Dimecratic High Jint, ef it lied to hev one. Why it didn’t bust the concern afore it w'uz ever lastingly too late when it found it wuzn’t a Dimecratic High Jint. Wiiy we wuz cust with men in the leedership wich hadn’t cunnin enutf to win by strategy or courage enuff to take by force. For three things Dimocrisy is disquieted, and four wich nearly killed it; Tilden, Hew itt, Peltouand field. When I think uv tlie idiocy uv these men, wich we trustid, and into whose hands we J gave ourselves, I lift up my voice and howl with King Lemyooel’s j mother,‘Give not your strength to old wimrrien,’ Young ones take away strength, but it returneth ; old ones destroy by their counsel, and it is irretreevable. Ef they’d hed ez much sense ez they hed money, we’d never bin made Nebuckhednezzers uv, and bin turned out to grass in this way.” The patriot who wears an excep tionally haggard look can be sufely set down as one who is haunted by the fear that Mr. Hayes will a good President. Terrible Panic in a Church. New York, March B.—A panic in the church of St. Francis Xavier, in Sixteuth street, near Sixth avenue, to j night caused a rush of women from j one of the galleries, and in tlie tu- j mult which ensued six women and one boy Were trampled under foot and killed. The audience was'eom posed entirely of women and children it being “women’s week” in Lent. The number of persons injured could not be ascertained. The bodies of the unfortunates were taken to the Twenty-fifth Precinct Station House where they remained awaiting iden tification. The church was terribly crowded, principally by women and children. The galleries also were crowded to overflowing. Father Longcake was preaching the sermon and bad been speaking about ten minutes when a women went into an hysterical fit in j the gallery on the side of the church i toward Sixth avenue. This created ! quite a stir, and the commotion in creased in the endeavors of thq crowd to find out what was the matter. At thisjuncture a cry of fire was heard and a rush was made for the exit from the gallery. The doorway was blocked for a moment by a very large woman and this check caused tlie panic to increase tenfold. The crowd hurled tlie woman down tlie steps, and in the rush that followed seven persons were crushed to deatli and many others were injured and had their clothing torn. The injured were takeiShome before their names could be learned. The bodies of the dead were identified as follows: Mary Casey, of No. 229 West Eigh teenth street; Alin Spencer and Mich ael Spencer, of No. 89 Ninth avenue; Mary Goughian No. 202 West Twenty fifth street; Eliza Masterson of No 408 Seventh avenue, and Ann I’’ orbes of No. 10 West Nineteenth street, j making a total number of six killed. ! The people in the body of the church j were quieted and dismissed in an or- j derly manner after a benediction. A delegation of colored Soutli Carolinians waited upon President Hayes Friday. The President spoke with perfect frankness, saying that he desired to remove the antagonism existing between the races, especially the political differences resting upon tlie color line, so that the colored men and Republicans might not need the protection of the army. He j said that the use of military force in civil affairs was repugnant to tlie genius of American institutions, and should be dispelled with if possible. | He, however, recognized the neces- j sity of protection at present, until j that feeling of respect for Hie rights of political opponents should be en tertained by tlie Democrats of the South. The President stated that with regard to the peculiar difficul ties existing in Soutli Carolina, con cerning which tlie delegation ex pressed great anxiety, lie proposed to preserved the status quo, and to examine ihe condition of affairs care fully and deliberately before he ac ted. Advices up to February 27, state that the weather all over California has been unusually flue for February except for agriculturists. The un clouded sun dries and cracks and packs the soil. The roots cannot spread to keep pace with the enforced growth of wheat under stimulus of i prolonged warmth and electric ac- i tivity. Unlike Eastern farms, Cali-1 forma cannot make up for deficient winter grains by multiplying sum-1 mer crops. Here without irrigation nothing can be grown in the seven ! rainless months of summer except i on moist bottoms. To a stranger | the country never looked more beau-, tiful. The rainfall, though light, lias | been well distributed. But the pen etration is too trifling to mature the growing grain. When we have a fraudulent Presi dent, will not every man who takes office under him be a sharer of the fraud ? The above was started by tlie Bal timore Gazette , and has been copied by about every democratic sheet in this State. Change the phraseology slightly by substituting “Governor” for President, and then let the Ga- 1 zette answer the question. Governor ] Carroll is Governor of Maryland to-, day through frauds put tlie bulldozers of Louisiana to blush, — yet a great many democrats in Mary land accept offices under him and it | don’t seem to trouble their conscience very much. We conclude they would have done the same if tlie bulldozers had succeeded'in “count- J ing in” Slippery Sam. NUMBER 3. POLITICAL SELECTIONS. The following extract from Frank Leslie* 111 titrated Sempaper, a lead ing Democratic journal, ‘should be generally circulated through the press of the country : As for President Hayes himself, it is fortunate that lie is not a great man with an imperious will, but an unquestionably good man, who has seen enough of public, and learned enough in the various offices he has filled, to save him from falling into any serious mistakes, or from becom ing tlie dupe of designing knaves. With his inauguration a change for the better has taken place in com mercial affairs, and the hopes of the country have begun to revive. lie might have said in his inaugural spec 1 1 what Sam Hon ton said to his soldiers after the decisive battle ot San Jacinto, “Now go home and plant corn.” Now everybody may at'end to his private affairs ; tlie far mer may plant corn or sow what; the manufacturer may make cloth, and the merchant may prepare fora large accession of customers. There will be no more President making for three years, and in the interim, tlie people may give all their time and energy to the prosecution of their private business. “lie best serves his party who serves his country best.” So said President Hayes in his inaugural address. What a striking illustra tion ol tliis truth was the late demo cratic House of Representatives! In their mail devotion to party, the democrats f rgot country and tram pled upon its constitution and its laws. To promote partisan purposes they neglected duty, forgot patriot ism and carried the eouutry to the borders of revolution and anarchy. They left legislation unfinished and the business of the country to .suffer in consequence. The result will be the great detriment of their own po litical aspirations, if not tlie death of the party. They had the oppor tunity to save the democratic organ ization from utter infamy, but in their blind fury they forgot that of which President Hayes now reminds them, that “He best serves his party who serves his country best.” The Philadelphia Times (Indepen dent Democrat) remarks : “To read ! the current issues of many of the Democratic organs one would hardly believe that the Tilden whom they now denounce is the Tilden under whose banner tliev inarched to vic tory a few months ago, and whom they lauded to the skies as the great reformer and ideal statesman of the age. Yet he is the same. Had Mr. Tilden been inaugurated as well as elected, Cox and Knott, and Black burn and Springer, and all the oth ers, curs with Democratic collars on their necks, who now bark at his heels, would have been found sup pliant and whining at his feet, thank ful for any bone of patronage that might be bestowed upon them.” If Mr.Tilden had been chosen Pres ident his Southern policy, in tlie opinion of tlie Louisville Courier- Journal, would have been checked or impeded by the cry which the Re publicans would have raised that he was favoring the ex-Confederates; but the same policy on the part of Hayes will command the confidence and support of both parties . “In a word, 11 says that whilom fiery but now philosophical newspaper, “the recognition of the real governments of South Carolina and Louisiana by Mr. Hayes will do more to take the Southern question out of politics than tlie same result accomplished by any other means.” The Memphis Appeal berates Air. Key for accepting a Cabinet office, but it does not represent the sentiment of a majority of the Tennessee Demo crats. He received a rain of letters and telegrams from leading men of his own party in the State urging him to go into the Administration. Mr. Childress, Chairman of the Democratic State Central Committee, gave him that advice in the name of the whole committee. Providence never permits events to occur by chance or accident. If it hadn’t been for Mr. Tilden’s ven tures in the reform vote market, the world would never have known who laid the biggest and ugliest nose in America. —Burlington Hair/eei/e. .The Boston .Herald wonders if Mr. Blaine, on seeing Mr. Schurz in the Cabinet, will not think it “cussed foolishness,” as the darky said when tlie minister was baptizing his wife and lust iter under the ice.
