rnMU0B jwm1 of tlia Fiftocntl
Amendment, passed by our Legisla

islatures of the other States for ratifi
cation or rejection.
Any ono who lias watched the pro
gress of opinion in the hist ten years
has seen the current working strong y
in ftvor of Manhood Suffrage. Ten
years ago' thcro was hardly a man to
advocate it: now it is adopted by
States. Tit in tho faee of aU this th
Democratic leaders are arraying their
party against this current, and are as
euriug their followers that they will at
last win the day. Well, let them go.
?Yhora tho gods would destroy, they
first mako mad." We mizht as well
beat them 01 this question ns any oth
r. Tho Democrats had their lingers
oorchei with Slavery, burned with
Rebellion, and wo julgo that wcu
they are done.with Manhood Suffrage,
they will b willing to keep theic
nds off of things.
" The iVtai points out a sinful jr fact
in tho last annual report of tho Prison
Agont. The statistics submitted show
that whilo crimo has been on tho in
crease among tho whito poptil.uian,
It has been decrenins arum)' tho
blacks. As the colored population of
Philadelphia "aro tr a man Republi
can in their political creed," and the
majority of thl vhltps Tbtinenitie
(vide Wallace's campaign documents),
thd Pi-cai argues "vcfry , forcibly that
Pemocracy has sonvithin;; to do with
tho increaso of crimo. Tlio point is
well taken. If wo are to ba guided
by the reasoning of th-i Djtnjcntis
journals, certainly the culor of the skin
has'nothing to do with the question ;
or rather, if we a-Mept thiir theory
that it impels a man to commit all
manner of base crimes, it only strength
ens the positiou of tho IVow. The
thick skull, long lieu), sharp shin
bone, Ham Biblical, thcologioo-politi-cal
theories don't bear pointedly, or in
strictly philosophical manner, upon
facts submitted by tho Prison Agent.
In fact, we doubt if ever Nasby can
help the Democracy out here. -

Many of tho most affecting and
most important scenes described in the
Bible, transpired under the splendors
of oriental night. Sodom and Egypt,
Beenhcha and Babylon, Carmd and
Gil boa, Olivet and Einmaus, Jerusa
lem and the tea of Galilee, have each,
by night, been witnesses of the power
and glory of the omnipotent Jehovah.
The author of "Night Scenes in the
Bible," has followed the shadow of
night across tho landscape of divine
revelation, and grouped together the
sacred scenes which are made awful or
impressive by the mantle of darkness

light "now and beautiful gems from
the mine of bible truth," and has
produced a dolightful volume. The

The first is "Tho Night Watch in

crag upon crag, oi either sale, stainls
the vateh-tovcr,and its soliury watch

seen the first bright streaks of ap
proaching dawn. At tho foot of the
pass, wholly shaded by the overhang
ing crag-i, a party of travelers aro en
c impel. They cry out to the watch
man 1 "Watchman, what of the
night," and down through the pass
comes reverberating that cheering cry,
"Tho morning cometh." Again wo pass
