DES ABO, AM., OPT. 13, 1866.
WHAT IS OUR FORM OF GOV ERNMENT. For 00 years tlio United States lias gloried in the name of Republic—ami livr Republican principles bare been her boast. Notwithstanding the mighty breach which four years of unparalleled war Las made, it is still claimed that she is republican in form and in principle. If we stop to enquire wlint is republi canism, we find it to be that state of " .government In which the sovereign ! power is vested in representatives elec ted by the people. Now, if the South be a part of the govemmeut—and it surely is, else why is she taxed to bear the expenses of the government—her citizen are manifestly, in part, the peo ple, And as this people have no voice in the election of representatives, in which the sovereign power is vested, the name Republican does not lit, and cannot, be worn. Again, we have in Andrew Johnson a tihief Magistrate, clothed with power, but it is a coutrollpd, not a sovereign power, hence wo cannot be called a monarchy, either absolute or limited. If we scrutinize closely our form of government, wc find it to be closely allied to oligarchy — aristocratic it would be, if there was found in the controlling spirits the least particle of nobility—for certainly, the power, the supreme power, is now held and cxer .cised by ns vile and corrupt a set of men as over made law for any people. Congress, the representatives of part of the people, claim the right to legislate ‘for the whole people; In the name of republicanism they deny the right of suffrage; and in the name of liberty they laugh to scorn the claims of a peo ple who should be free. The desire of the better part, the thinking, unseWlsli classes of the whole country, is to see tu6 government brought back to its old landmarks; to see republican princi ples, the principles by which our gov ernment is ruled—to see the oligarchy of Sumner, AVadc, Stephens & Co., des troyed—and the government of our fathers re-established. Surely the party now in power care not for principle; their business' is, to sacrifice principle, anti till things else that, pertain to a nation’s honor, for party power and individual gain. There is a party North, who have drawn on the armour to battle for right, hut who can say they will prevail.— The struggle will lie great, and upon it depends the name hv which we must be known. AS?3" In many of our exchanges we notice considerable room is given to the setting forth of the advantages pos sessed hv the several towns in the State. Now we would not he behind in this matter, but coining to the point at once, would say Dos Arc, in point ot increase of population and rapid growth of commerce has. since the war, outstripped any town in the State. Now that the season for imigration ap proaches, we would cull special atten tion to tlio fact that we have one of the most delightfully located towns lit the State, possessing all possible advanta ges, and recommending itself l>v its situation, its society, and its import ance to all who search for pleasant homes. In addition, there is : n abun dance of good fertile land, laying con venient to our town, that may be pur chased at reasonable rates by those de siring to engage in agricultural pur suits. AVc would sav to all who want a good home, good society, with all that innkos life pleasant, visit Dos Arc, by all means, before settling elsewhere. NOETHERN^LEOTIONS. During this week the election in many of the Northwestern States lias been held-. As vet we have no returns, and will dophtlcss be unable for onie time to get them in full, owing to the great Political excitement that will ore vail. We ha ve no means of determin ing tv hut the srsult will he; hut we have great hopes that the Democratic parti’ w ill carry at least the 'Western •States.. In the Eastern States, tho ma jorities have been given to the llepub llfnft p*arty, but with large Democratic gains. --- MB - WHAT OF THE TIMES. 'rhe old ship of State is still out at »ca; the winds howl, the thunders mut ter, and the billows heave and break against her, and the n ew- are restless, 'even unto mutiny. The heavens above are black with clouds; the sun, moon and stars are shrouded in gloom ; the Vessel rocks anil struggles amid the surging waves, the compass shakes, and the needle trembles, and refuses to poise and (mint. The chart, (the con stitution,) is lost. Amid the din and . confusion, the watchman exclaims, what of the times! and the storm coh oes hack, what of the times ! The pi lot shouts, breakers ahead, trim the sails; bo, she veers! Suck is the starni that betides our voyage, politi cally. Such the dangers that gather about ns. Hope of an early calm has well nigh fled, for this is the Eurocly dou or east wind ; its source is omi nous of evil, as of yore. Mariners, (politicians,) have long dreaded this tempestuous wind; few pilots can man age tire old ship when these winds arc ubre&d on the political sea, and for years these winds have not slumbered. ..Bolus has opened the windows of the Mountain. (New England.) and «oii * • i forth flic ‘form. Tnot on T'ly-ri«. btif | on Johnson.) and under the stress o) ; the fierceness of the tern pest, the ves ■ sel has again to pass between ('lmryb dis and twylla, (Ihidicalixfn and Reces sion.) But to the hrnVe and valiant there is hope that the vessel will Weather the storm and gain the port of safety under the gallant Captain who 'now stands at the helm. To others, there is but one hope of safety, and ! that is. to hope for no safety. These | must he sustained with the courage <jj : despair, whose motto is. “never give j up the ship.” The. world is deeply jn I forested inthe voyage now being made, ( tlie last and best experiment of in m at freedom and republican government, is at stake; the glory and lions, of the new world must culminate, or forever go down. Then. avIio can idly stand by, or indifferently look on, while the conflict deepens and widens. Patriots, in breathless silence, gaze with intense interest into the future, to catch a glimpse of the fearful result. But no mortal ken can penetrate the gloom that cuvelops the terminus of the voy age; a long night of clouds and storm casts its dark shadows far down into the coming future, and closes the ave nues to the revelation of the filings that, are to be, while the fitful scow! of darkness broods over the tilings that shall lie, and mocks our efforts to know them. Snell is an imperfect pic ture of our prospects as a people. _ _ X**** WHAT IS TO BE FEARED. i The New York Independent, which I is, probably, the most influential ltndi 1 eal journal in the North, said, a few days ago: “No leading Kepublicun in Congress means j to admit, Ibo ten wailing Stales simply on tbe [adoption of tbo Constitutional Amendment. These States arc to bo admitted on no condi tion short of tiio cipial political rights of their •loyal citizens, without distinction of race, A reconstruction of the Union on any other ba sis would be a national dishonor. Until the rebel States can come back on this basis they cannot como back at all.” The Baltimore tJazotte, in comment ing on this presumptions declaration, says: “Hundreds of public speakers luive uttered, and are uttering daily, I these same sentiments, imt m the taco ] of all this, the radical press here stout lv | stands upon the ridiculous and hare ; faced assertion that the question of ne gro suffrage is not before the people. ! Such reckless mendacity deceives only j those who are predetermined not to [recognize the truth. No intelligent man who has watched the current of events since the war, and has conned the speeches of the leading Uadical politicians, both in and out of Congress, I can fail to read aright the programme i which the revolutionists of to-day pro pose to carry out. There was no ex aggeration in the President's words | when lie said to the delegation from the ! Cleveland Convention, on Tuesday, "1 j think we are now at the most import ant crisis of our country's history. If j Congress should he sustained by largo | majorities in the coining elect ions, then, ! feeling confident- of being able to over ' ride Ihe President's veto for three years j to come, the Hadieal faction would ! proceed at once to give practical effect 1 to its policy. Ill that ease it will on [ large the Freedmon’s Bureau and ex tend its powers, and will se% that an adequate military force is placed at its disposal. The next step will he to procure in each Southern State what will he accepted as nil endorsement of [the Constitutional Amendment. Bo. j gus Conventions,'like that of Louisi ana, will he convened, or less than a ! quorum of a packed Legislature, like that of Tennessee, will ho .assembled to ratify it. Then Congress will insist (hut. under the Clause protecting the ; blacks, in the privileges and immuni ties of citizens, they are entitled to the elective franchise under the.restrictions only as are imposed on the whites. In I the exercise of this “privilege" they ! will be protected by Federal bayonets, and the ttadicals will kindly furnish all j the candidates. Oppression ami plun der will then go hand in hand through the Southern land, and the downhill of i the Government- and institutions of our lathers will he a matter of time only. With a two-thirds majority in each House of Congress, a central junto will undertake to rttic Hie country, and will invoke, if need he. in vindication of its i'acts, some new higher law which abro i gates mere Constitutional provisions and legislative emu Intents."—[Mcm j phis Argus.
