While we are unable to shut our eyes to the fact of the fanatical mania that has entered the political arena, and made a clean.sweep in the late elections, has included in its votaries a good many democrats, it would be ungene rous and mean, not to do justice to those good and true men of the Democratic party, who have been true to the great constitational prin, ciples which form the basis of their party's creed. The Northern Democratic party that was defeated in the recent elections by the confede rated isos that has sprung up, has not swerved one jot or tittle from the principles' which should be the basis of a union between south. ern men. In those elections in which it has been defeated, it stood up for those very prin ciples. Altbough beaten, it still stands by them. Those Northern Democrats have prov ed themselves, both in victory and defeat, true to the Constitution, true to State equality, true to their southern brethren. Under these circumstances, is it proper, is it generous, is it jut, in any paper or any man at the Soutbh, whether Whig or Democrat, to place them on the same platform with the false Democrats, whom they voluntarily abandoned, or the abo litionized Whigs wbom the southern Whig leaders have denounced and abandoned? For our part, we cling to such men with a tenacity that nothing can break. The Whigs of the south may denounce them, but they were true to the south when the Whigs of that section were controlled by their more numerous Abo lition allies of the North. Many of them have been sacrificed for their devotion to the consti- I tutional principles for which the south contends; and yet southern Democrats are asked to aban don them. This they will never do. They will promptly cut themselves off from all taint-' ed Democrats, but their tried and noble Dem- i ocratic friends of the North, they will adhere i to, cherish and defend. I 8panish View of the International Question. Certain members of the Spanish Cortes, addressed a letter to a public journal, iii which they attribited to Mr. Soule, the opin' ion, or at least the impression that a rap tare between Spain and the United States was inevitable, and the pretext assigned in the letter is an alleged failure by tl)e Gov. ernment of Spain to extend towards Mr. Soule and the country which he represents the eonsideration to which they were enti tied. "Cotemporaneously with this letter a pamphlet has appeared in which an effort Is made to throw upon fihe Spanish Govern. ment the responsibility of the complications which exists between the two countries; or at all events, the responsibility of having failed to give theseo complications a solution. In this pamphlet there is attributed to Mr. Soule a benevolent disposition towards Spain; so extreme indeed as to be almost in consistent with his maintaining the interests of his own country." This matter was brought up in a debate between Sir Rances and Sir Luzariaga, the Minister of Fordgn affaiirs. During t e speech of the latter, after disclaiming any discourtesy shown to Mr. Soule, either on the part of the Ministry or the Government, he expressed sentiments and intentions cred itable to himself and the Government he represents. The Minister remarked: "Under these circumstances, gentlemen, the Government of her Majesty received the information t which I have alluded, and being now able to proceed according to its own free wil before the eyes of the world, has directed aUthe quest now pend. ing with the Govetment of the United States tobe studiously go* over anew, and has laid down as the prnndples on which its investi gations are to be tonducted, not an endeav or to seek argumests against the claims of the United States, but a fair effort to ascer Itain what is just, it order that when ascer tained it may be conceded, and conceded spontaneously andfreely. This Government I repeat has resolved of its own accord to yield to whatever is just, md to yield without press ure. It is confidem of meeting the sae sen timents on the partof the Government of the United States: Thdr President had address ed the House of Representatives in the same spirit, declarng that justice is his only object. The two nationsare thus of one accord, and being both sheerely so,' this Govern ment cherishes an abiding hope of arriving at an entirely peanful solution, I say an abiding hope, becamse gentlemen, in refer ence to this affair sad to all others which may be presented lere, I frankly announce to the Cortes that whilst I have the honor to direct the foreip. policy of this nation I shall be governei by the dictates of good sense and of justice, by the principle that they should yield vho are not in the right. When I am persualed, in any controversy that my country isaot in the right, I believe that I bring her in dishonor, that I dero gate in nothing fom her dignity, by saying that I yield. In such a course there is strength and not reakness. It is thus that amicable relation are to be maintained with other countries; it is thus that we shall establish our rigit to exact justice from other Govcrnmens in their dealings with us. I cherish then,the hope that these ques tions will have a paceful ending, and I cher ish it the more boause the American people -the true Amerian people--are of gener ous and elevated sentiments and between two great nationt having such sentiments in common, thereare a thousand motives for cordial sympath;. Under these circumn stances, genttema, the passionate influences being removed, Muich, from their irritation, are so baneful tothe intercourse of nations all foundation fozdoubt, suspicion, and pre judice will disapear, as the good of both countries so impratively demands that it should. I trust inat the wishes of the hon orable Deputy ill then be satisfactorily accomplished." THE SCARCITY OF BREADSTUFFS AND MEATS.-ThI sheat harvest of last year is beginning to reval itself now very striking ly. The N. Y. Iost says that the opening of navigation doe not add to the supplies; on the contrary, tie dealers of Albany and Troy are making purchases of wheat in the Now York marka. The Post adds: "The stock of wheat is reduced to 25, 000 bushels, nearV all southern and Cana dian. When thecanals open, it is not ex pected that the sullies will be heavy, either from Canada or he upper Lakes, whence only supplies can' - had. No supplies of grain or flour can come from Ohio or the interior of this Site, so that the sources of supply until after text harvest, are very lim ited. There are to receipts of importance via New Orleans, Lad the supplies of South ern flour are lightfur a want of wheat to grind. Prices, tlomefore instead of falling when navigation opens, are likely to be fully maintained f they do not actually rise. "The great scarity of feed for hogs is, we observe, greatlr diminishing the number of hogs in the country, especially in Illinois, and will produce ! serious effect, by and by in the price of previsions. The immediate result, has been horever, in sending more hin' nnd ho'r flesh o market. More fresh pork has boon consumed this winter than usual, vad has considerable influence in checking the prices of other meat." "DON'T Woams."-This is the first thing an editor should get by heart. If Mr. 81o cum threatens to withdraw his patronage, because you criticise Professor Drawl's leo ture on the onion question, don't worry but tell him to go ahead and do it. If Mr. Bullion writes you an insulting letter say. ing if you do not stop writing about the Diddleton Railroad he will ruin you with a lawsuit-don't worry, but dare him to try it on. If Mr. Smith threatens to "cave your head in" because you mention that "his son, Bob," was sent to the tombs for pelting a street lamp with brick batse-don't worry, but tell him you so lovelaw that you dine on a sallad made of red tape and seal ing wax. If Mr. Silk approaches with a horse pistol "that kicks," and offers to blow your brains out if you ever allude again to his visits to Mrs. Demures, don't worry about it but tell him to pull its " what you call it," and blaze away. Again say, never worry. If you do you are no more calcu. lated for an editor than a Quaker is for marine hornpipes. NEW ApVERTISEMENTS. WM.
