What we referred to in yesterday ' is sue in relation to the exercise of majority rights in congress is what should lie krp constantly before the thinking ptililic, lx cause upon the proieruse of those rijlttf . us much ns upon any tiling else, lianas til. litertiesof thecouiitry. Moresoa'rhaps. because if a majority conceive itself tc be invested with absolute power by th chances of position, und that the minor ity for the time is rightfully placei in the condition of helplessness, then then is every temptation, und every inclitmtiot nlso, to so fortify the majority in it power us to make it permanent. Then is imminent danger in toleration to tin direct srnsp after unlimited control. Am herein is the broad distinction betweei the republican and the democratic panic The instincts of the one inspire the put pose to centre all power into one strut. band or into the hands of an oligarchy centralization in government and its ol jects directed to the fostering nnd fa vot ing the interests of wealth and powcrfr corporations, livery net of lejjisliitiui proposed is with that view, even thcal fectetl solicitude for the assumed rijjhi and alleged wrongs of the negro, asserted not from generous sympathy, but will selfish calculation of the added stretigt to putty power. The whole policy of th republican party is extra-coustitutioua The constitution stands as a icrpcti;. bar to its movements and a rebuke to ii methods. It can only x set aside uu over-ridden by an unscrupulous majority so large nnd so reckless as to cncounig it to defy public opinion, and establish ii self beyond the risks of being called torn count. The democratic party on th other har.d. recognizes its accountabilit to the eople, recognizes what is due ii nets of legislation, what is due to th rights anil interests of the iieople. recog nizes the superior claims of the grea mass of small fortunes and modest iudu try against the limited yet tremendou aggregation of money power and corjxii tite interests in the hands of therclativel; few in numbers, yet disproporti-innlb predominant in influence. And the di tinction is traced back rem! My to oin fundamental fact. (Inepnrtyiiespiseslh constitution ; the other reverences it ntn obeys it. And on this distinction hang popular liberty ami the harmony am prosjH'rity of the country. In the choice of a Senkcrthrrrptiblicni party found a man after their own heart He is its able as he is unscrupulous, lb is as blind a partisan ns he is narrow its: statesman. His patriotism is contracted to his party, and his statesmanship t the development of its interests. At tin head of hi majority he feels himself i victor going forth conquering lint to conquer. The minority he regnnb lis subject victims, with no rights hi is bound to regard, nnd with no claitm he is called upon to recognize. He it oienly, defiantly nnd rudely nrbitrnry, und he take no shame to himsJf that In is unfair, unjust and notoriously tyran nical over the richts of the minority. Among any other people his decision) und his bearing woultl have already leil to disturbance more natural than sucl as are involved in parliamentary contlict The British bouse of commons wouh' have been in such boisterous uproar at to have drowned the voice nf the sieakei und recalled him to a sense of his injus tice. The French chnmber would hnvi been to violently intlatmd as to cotnl u resort to military aid to restore order. Americans are patient and self-contained and Mr. Heed may do a great deal mori than he has done before he trnnscentb the limit of endurance. And this it be cause the minority well knows that while he mnv rule the house at his will by autocratic, instead of parliamentary rule, beyond and above that is the great lorce of a just and indignant public sen timent. That Mr. Heed cannot rule The whole -oplc are neither partisans nor politicians. Krpubliciini as well as demount are equally involved in the questions of harmony und iroserity both equally inspired by the sentiments of justice and fair piny. Doth must see that the first is jeopardized nnd the other insulted by the position taken by Mr, Keed that the minority has no rights. Il that position is coincided in by public opinion, then the reign of the Empire has lwen inaugurated. THIt Al.TOK AFFAIR. Some davs ago we referred to the con flict of races which had arisen in Alton III,, growing out of the efl'orts ol the negroes of that place to establish them seves on terms of equality in the school set apart for the white children. The Atlanta Constitution of the 22nd, gives ns the following sequel: We gave an account the other dnr of the race troubles nt the town or Alton, in the State of Illinois, resulting from an attempt on the part of the negroes, who bad deserted their own school, to force their children into the white schools. At that time a number of ncgrochildren had bent admitted to the high school but when the pupils were turned .out at re cess, th white children attacked the blnck ones and drove them off. This was as far as our account went, but there was a sequel to the story. The second day after the colored children had been driven from the school grounds by the white pupils, the negroes pros-ecdetl to take action. About three hundred, ranginc in age from six to sixty years, marched to the school. The column was stoped by a posse of constables, who, liv the exercise of great firmness, com pelled all the negroes, except about twenty-live, to leave the school-grounds. The twenty-five that remained did so on the plea that thev were there to attend school. While the constables were ejecting the nctrroes. there was ercnt danger ol a riot. Some of the blacks made motions ns if to draw weapons, but none were shown. The school-board applied for more constables to serve as guards, anil the town authorities furnished them, so that, at last accounts, the high school was practically in a state of siege. The negro teacher, whose school lias been deserted hv the blacks, quit in disgust. He is said to lie a verv cnnuble teacher, but he has lost his position because his negro friends think it will lie nicer to icnd their children to the white schools, where there are white teachers. SuobU'ry of this sort by no means adds to the simplicity ol the race problem. We take the following from the llostoti ilouit Journal. That paper takes the .iew that must present itself to a fair mil reasonable mind. It recognizes tilt ntluence ol husian nature ill nil human ransactions, and KTCcivcs that the vorkingsof the Southern heart are not illy natural but commendable. Giving hem credi' lor sincerity in the cause in vhich they embarked, the Home Journal is generous enough to feel that oblitera .ion of the memories of that cause, and lefection to its leaders, would lie treason o honor, manliness and a glorious, hough unfortunate record of courage, ortitudeand the bravelv won admira ion of a dispassionate world. The Home ournnl does the South justice. We remark to the Traveller that, whilt he opprobrious epithet "Southern rebel" one not to be proud of, because applied o defame us, we are not ashamed of it. t is applied with such iudiscriminntt KTsistent malignity by those who use it, hat in time it may liecome a title ol mnor. The Americans of the revolu ionary war never felt humiliated at tin mighty or contemptuous name of relieb pplied to them by the llritish. Majot itcairu's demand at Concord, "tlisiessi e reUls," only aroused the patriots lood. New England writers should Ik etierotis in the use of that word "rebel;" ecause both sets of rein-Is acted umr lie same broad principle of resisting am' i seining wrong, nnd in asserting ur aaintaining constitutional rights.. Hut rgctling that such paiers ns the Trav llcr engage themselves in trying to ring about la'twccn the North ami lie South such conditions us ex st between England nnd Ireland, clwecn Kussi.l utid Poland, undy ig rancorous hate never suffered to bate because the pride of conquest can trier lie satisfied without KTietual trtlv te paid to the conqueror, we l hunk tht Ionic Journal for the manly, generous id sensible expression of its view, n re mke which we hoe will influence othet iirnals to inculcate similar sent intents The Traveller otiecvening this week had n editorial which stated that "There i robablv no Soul linn boy or girl to-day. .Ithoiigli it is nearly twenty -live years nice the disloyal army iiiuier Ixv stir endered to the Hag, that is not proud ol lie name southern trial. The children l that section are taught to revere tin neinorics nnd to rejoice at the sight in he relicl ling of lvil." Now whethet here Ik- any foundation of truth or not n such a statement, il is hcvond u qurs- ton that sucn statements Ho harm. I s not well to do or say anything that an in any way keep open a wound that s healing. That the South should lovt Is heroes is to lie expected. That hoiild slid in its heart believe in tin usliccof the cause for which it fonglr nd for which its loved one died, must e true. Otherwise the war Uvonirs ii ontemptibleuffairralherthan a tragedy ilecause thev were lieuten, their ncnti ncntsnnd their bullet were not mini nilntel. They were not convinced tlm nev were wrong, tieconse tnev wen vercome. Thev victded to force, not ti pinion. As long ns the grnerntiim that ought live, there will live with them onie shadow ol allegiance to the muse tor which they sacrificed so much. Time ind the growing prosarity, nnd the Histice of the victor to the right of the conquered, can alone make this country one in heart nnd mind again, and thai wrililing ot the laud will not come ti unss in this centurv. The end of the war never the end of the trile. The worsi of the struggle for the lirosiirritv of the country, riven by civil war, come after the relH'llion is put tlown. Time ha to watch the relx-lhou section nursed back to health by the patience of its con queiers. The South made n mistake. It lias siilVered even tnor. bitterly lor it llian ha tlie .North which is saying mucn. if lit it is not t lie place ol north ern paper to aggravate the situation by such writing; as telling hut half the tale, and that the damaging half, help to keep unhealed the wound which it is Un duly ol this age to assist the country tt lorget, liv every menu in us tmwer. And surely honest journalism cannot do a better work than aiding that duty or a worse one man opMising it. Itisn very significant fact that the great negro convention recently held nt Chicago wiiconiKied entirely of North crn negroes. There was not n South ern delegate present. This is usually the case, Northern agitator, white and black, affect to know and feel more about the grievance of the Southern negroes than they do themselves, and officiously undertake to provitle or suggest reme dies. In ignorance, in ofticiousness and in bad tctncr, what i intended as relief might only add to troubles. Certainly so far as negroes may act as the mouth pieces nf their race, the Southern negroes may safely lie accepted ns the wisest of mouthpieces, Among them in the South are found the ablest of their race. We hear wise counsel given by tlie Rev. J. C Price and other lending negroes in thi State, by the Ret. Mr. Hlyden, Mr. Tay lor and other farther South and bv the Negro World, of Knoxville, We henr from them nothing but wise counsel to their race, not to regard a present sub ordinate position as one of wrong and injustice, but one in which It is in the power of the race to elevate themselves by making them selves worthy of n better destiny. The others propose to force what cannot lie forced, But those are mischievous agi tators, sell-seeking time servers, seeking their own' advancemeut, greedy fieri some little crumb of office or honors, and if the truth were known, disdaining to associate with the very (wople whole cause they affect to advocate. Confirmed. The favorable impression produced on the first appearance of the agreeable liquid Irtitt remedy syrup oi i-igs atew vears ago has been more than confirmed by the pleasant experience of nil who have used it, and tlie success ol tlie pro prietorsand manufacturers, the Califor nia l-'ig Syrup Company.
