ETEBX'.', PAT FOB THE EVB!TCf TELEGBAPH. THE COMMUNE AND LIBERTY. From the IT. Y, Timet. One of the Baddent things about the errors or extravagances of a good cause is that they inflict irreparable injury on the cause itself. . Ia .Europe, for many years to come, ' the crimes of the Parisian social istic democracy will be charged ' upon ' liberty,' and the first demands of the laboriBg ' classes and the oities of the Oontinent will be confused with the wild ideas and eaTage crimes of the Frenoh Cotn 1 ' munlsts. If the excesses of the sooialistio wsrkmen in Paris produce such a profound impression of horror and disgust here, we can imagine what the sentiment of the mid dle and intelligent classes of Europe must be concerning these crimes. Everything tends to make these excesses appalling and hideous to the world. The outbreak of the laboring classes was not against a tyranny in the flush of its power. It was not, like the .revolution of '98, an explosion of the masses against the abuses and wrongs of centuries, ' inflicted by the powerful. The Government whioh was attacked so fiercely was the choice of the people; it was, at least nominally, a re public The Moment chosen was when the . country lay bleeding and prostrate beneath ' ft foreign invader, whom these very laborers bad not the courage to attaok. The authori ties whom the masses thus attempted to over throw were themselves weakened by their . long struggle with the publio enemy. As if to defy the peouliar and most cher ished sentiments of Franoe and Europe, the war-governing power in Paris deolared war, not only against their bleeding country, but gainst art, property, and religion against civilization itself. For a time, the world was favored with the epectaole of a city governed by its day-laborers and "classes dangtreuses" They heard property deolared a robbery, religion a superstition, and the arts a memorial of barbarism. The ancient monuments of glory were overthrown; churches sacked and desecrated; the obliga tions of business declared broken; marriage made a contract at pleasure; and the iuini.s-r ' ters of religion banished or murdered. Toi crown all, the working men' in their defeat! attempted to.destroy the city they could notv govern; andfwith the riff -raff of allCnations! and both sexes who gatherjn the slums of a great city, they defaced and jpurnedworks of immortal geBius,and ruined and demolished' what no wealth or culture can ever restore They die at last, amid the blaekened anof blood-stained ruins of the capital they had professed to desire to free from the control ef their countrymen. Now, such horrors and crimes as these put back the cause the Parisian laborers had at heart at least half a century. The very name of "working-men's organizations," "associa tions," and "unions," will smell in the nos trils of Europe for generations. It is un doubtedly true that . the laboring classes of Europe have not had their fair share of the blessings of life. The rioh and the capital ists have nsed their labor for centuries, and fcave taken an undue proportion of the profits. They have a fair claim to more than they now get of the World's good things. They were, through universal suffrage, and, above all, through international trades unions, beginning to obtain more of their just rights. But suddenly there comes a blow npon them from the house of their friends. "What the laboring class will do with their power, when they get it, is shown in Paris!" will be the ready objection to every new privilege they claim. "The Frenoh ouvriert prove what trades anions and working-men's associations lead to! " Such will be the feeling of Europe at any proposed politioal elevation of the working-class, or at the prospeot of greater power in the trades associations. . The municipal idea of the Paris Commu nists had, undoubtedly, much justioe in it. They seem to have demanded for Paris ex actly what all English-speaking peoples give to their large cities the eleotion of their own city officials, the control of their education and militia, and, in most branches, a thorough self-government. They are privileges whioh ought to be granted to every French city, and would constitute the best means of polit ical education. It seems, at this dlstanoe, a piece of stupidity that the Versailles Govern ment did not at once oonoede them. The result, however, now is that munioipal gov eminent is Bet back also, with other reforms, throughout France. The cities will still be , governed by a central power. The crimes of the Communists have destroyed the Goni- ' mune. The people will attach all the horrors and outrages of the last four days to the very name of Communal independence, and France, under any Government that may be established, will still be a centralized admm istration. . QUAKER REFORM. From the If. T. Tribune. The great annual meeting of the Society of ' Friends held last week in their capital, Phila delphia, offered one or two significant hints as to the present status of tnat powerful body. Propositions were made that the Governing Committee or General Council for the year should hereafter be composed of members of both sexes in equal proportion. .The Society also altered its discipline bo as to forbid the manufacture or sale of all spirituous liquors by its members, the prohibition formerly having made a distinction, more nioe than wise, between distilled and fermented drinks, Action was also taken against the use of to- bacoo. These late reformatory movements strike us oddly, coming from a sect noted sinoe its foundation for its temperance and admission of the equality of woman. Jint the Quakers, though one of the most progressive of reu pious bodies, are paradoxically one of the slowest moving; taking their position, as they did at first, in the pioneer line not only of free thought but of work for humanity, and allowing the widest liberty for individual belief, they are not easily moved by outside pressure. Perhaps no body, either reli gious or politioal, has ever exeroised an influence at the same time so powerful and noiseless ia our sooial structure; they ' have worked by a silent, moral tis inertia, ' instead of the ' vehement propagandists of other reformers. Their strength has been to sit still; yet the truth they taught ; has been set before the people with a curious clearness: an every-day proof of how muun higher eloquence lies in lives than word.-). ' Beneath this sectarian character are the indi vidual caution, shrewdness, and keen sense of justioe, which stamp the Quaker to be kuowu of all men, as a mild, good taste does the Episcopalian, or an invincible hunger for argument, the Covenanter. A man in a shad bellied coat will give you food for a year with ' Lis right hand, but you shall not vhet hU Jeft of a penny. ' These traits, insignificant in theniRelves, assume, importance when the Society owns the influence of outside popular movements. The heavy mercury, not vola tile water, is the true index to the ohanges of the weather. - - . ' ' -- -. In tke maltsr of woman's equality, ih society has aoft&S but a Blight change; only making a matter of professed creed what it has always taoitly taught by practice. Bat the aotion on liquor and tobacco is more sig nificant. The shrewd Quaker has no only struck the nail, but driven it into the heart of the subject. The manufacture and sale of liquor are made matter of discipline as well as its use, while in other religious seots the wealthy tavern-keeper, distiller, or leader "of the whisky ring is permitted to hold a pray ing, profitable place in the Banotuary, while the poor wretch, struggling vainly with his hereditary thirst and weakened will against the poison they put to his lips, is driven from the fold into outer dark ness with threats of unquenchable fire and undying worms. It is not tempe rance pledges, nor temperance orators, nor even inebriate asylums, that will Bet this matter right among us. The oure of its victims will not remove malaria. When the liquor-seller as well as the drunkard has his share not only of promised hell-fire in the next world from his religious teachers, but of effective punishment in this, the temperance movement will be at last put upon its preper basis. The Quaker, standing on the safe ground of truth against expediency, with his clear eye and steady hand cut the first link of the Gordian knot of slavery for us. What he will do with the knotty problems of Indian affairs or temperanoe remains .to be proved. His first movements at least indicate that the tasks given him are not too great for him to conquer. TI111EE POLITICAL SPOOKS From the N. T. World. This country is just now a good deal plagued with ghosts, spectres, and what the old Germans called dopple-gangers and the Scotch "doubles." Some of these apparitions devote themselves to making private homes unhappy; other some to muddling publio mat ters. One of the latter class, nnder the name and guise of Andrew Johnson, has just been making a speech at Knoxville, in Tennessee, which is just enough like the genuine speeohes of that ex-President to deceive his bitter ene mies, while it contains suggestions so peculiar and original that had they really been made by Mr. Johnson he would be entitled to rank with such great inventors in legislation- as Draco, Confucius, Wendell Phillips, and Felix Pyat. ,. Of course the spook had tact enough to deceive the telegraph operators by using Mr. Johnston's favorite allusion to the fact that he had "passed through political life, enjoying all its honors from the village alderman to the highest office within the gift of the people." He next ventured on a bolder flight, and observed with muoh appa rent satisfaction: "After running my life course a mighty course it has proved I can truly say I have violated no pledge, sacrificed no principle." From these harmless obser vations in a vein not unlike Mr. Jonnson a, the sprite advanoed to propound an astonish- ! ing plan lor the elevation of mankind, phy sical, mental, and moral." This plan is as brief as it is brilliant. Instead of sending "criminals to the penitentiary, where they beoome the rivals of honest meohanics," this elvish orator proposes to divide them into two classes, to be thus summarily dealt with: "The first class I would hang; the second I would deprive of the power of propagating their species." If this be done, the pixie coolly Bays that "in a few centuries man would become the image of his Creator. The epook of Andrew Johnson is, however, an innocent brownie in oompanson with a sulphur-breathing imp which has suoceeded in passing itself off upon a reporter of the Herald in Georgia as the "ex-Fresident of the Confederate States," and in that charac ter has dictated to the reporter a discourse on the "Lost Cause, which combines the political sagacity and practical good nense of a Wendell Phillips with the unobtrusive modesty of a Zachnria'i Chandler. Doubtless the imp was stimulate! to this expioit by the elaborate prominence given by Horace ureeley, in a speech re cently delivered by that great agriculturist at Galveston, Texas, to the person of Mr. Jef ferson Davis as a means of reaching and toothing the Southern heart. In this Galves ton oration Mr. Greeley appears explaining that he gave bail for Mr. Davis, not beoause be thought bo much of Mr. Davis as the act would seem to imply, but beoause be believed the Southern people to be so much interested in Mr. Davis that to set him at liberty and put him in the way of amusing himself by playing at speech-making would greatly conciliate the Southern heart and lead the Southern heart to lean kindly towards the liberator of the fallen chief. In seizing this opportunity the imp, it must be confessed, showed a certain amount of artistic perception. Although the Southern people have little cause to remember the administra tion ef their affairs by Mr. Davis eitner with pride or pleasure, they are muoh too gallant a people not to have been tenderly moved to wards him by the vicarious humiliations which he Buffered for them at the hands of Edwin M. Stanton. After the surrender of Lee and Johnston Mr. Davis was certainly the least respected and most unpopular man in the South. He would have continued bo to be had not Stanton with calcu lating malignity made a martyr of him, in defiance alike of decency, of jus tioe, and of sound policy. Since his libera tion from Fortress Monroe, therefore, Mr. Davis has been to the Southern people a kind of concentrated impersonation and symbol of that radioal spite and rage against them selves to which Horace Greeley oo earnestly attributes all the delay which has ooourred in re-establishing peace within our borders. The imp, therefore, which took upon itself the task of making speeches for Mi. Davis in the Herald immediately npon Mr. Uree ley's revival of the Confederate President at Galveston, chose his time well. He knew that the Southern people would be bound, if only by 'consideration for Mr. Greoley, to allow anything whioh Mr. Davis might sav or be reported to say, to pass nnrebuked, no matter how indiscreet or out of taste or foreign from the feelings of the Southern people themselves it might be. Of course. the object of the imp must be supposed to be mischievous; but the time has happily gone by when sucn operations could produce any deep and abiding effect on any but the most thoroughly clod-hopping of fly-gobblers at the North. The third political spoek of the momest seems to be a being of gentler mould, and he has certainly taken upon him "to did figure or present" a more innocuous mortal. He ia a co bold who turns up in Texas as Horace Greeley, making the very speeches to which we have already alluded. The real Horace Greeley, we need hardly say, has never left New lor, lie has been, indeed, tbclnded from the publio for a short time, as the Irxbune Tuesday morning ingeniously admitted by publishing a moat interesting narrative from his pen of his sufferings in Ludlew Street Jail, to whioh unpleasant resort he found his way in consequence of some disastrous financial events not unconnected with 'Strawberry farmina. ?be pen whioh depicted so vividly many ears ago the mishaps of a captive in the rarisian prison of Ulicay has not last its cun ning. Mr. Greeley soems to have been worse treated in Ludlow street than he wa3 in Clichy, possibly because the people in the former place, understanding his speech, may bave been exasperated by his frequent and profnse profanity. He states that he went to prison in order to learn the inconveniences of captivity, whlcn is quite of a piece with his going to fanning at Chappaqna in order to learn the disadvaatages of agricultural igno rance. But though we sympathize with him in his tribulations, we are only half sorry at heart that his temporary withdrawal from the use of pens and ink should have given the Galveston cobold a chanoe to personate him. For the discourses which the cohold has delivered for him supply a timely and excellent complement of the ora tions made for Mr. Johnson and Mr. Davis by their respective doubles. The main differ ence between the tone of the former and of the two latter is to be traced to the cironm- stance that Mr. Davis and Mr. Johnson look bitterly back to Presidenoiei come and gone, while Mr. Greeley looks brightly forward to a Presidency Btill to be. Should the dream be fulfilled, common gratitude will require Mr. Greeley to endorse his cobold by making Mr. Davis his Secretary of State and Bending Mr. Johnson as Minister to Franoe. TnE SUCCESSOR TO PRESIDENT GRANT From Theo. Tilton't Golden Ag, If Mr. Greeley, in coming home from the South, should bring with him, as a gift from that portion of our common land, a popular nomination to the Presidency of the United States, this expressed wish, by one section of the Union, ought to be promptly ratified by the other. The next Presidency, judged from to-day's point of view, is like the raspberry plant which takes one year to grow the stalk and the next to bear the fruit. We are now growing the stalk of next year's Presidential nomination. The farmer of Chappaqna, who went south ward on the simple errand of carry ina an agricultural address to Texas, is now every where bailed by Southern men as a North erner in whose honesty they trust, and whose kindliness they reciprocate. If among all tho Northern candidates the bouth prefers this charitable statesman, we believe the North would assent to the wishes of its late ene mies, and give to the Southerners a President true to their best interests. A renomination of General Grant would be so injudicious that it ought to be no longer discussed. To say nothing of the great fact that his administration has been but a medi ocre success, and not worth repeating for another four years, the victorious North should not a second time impose on the whole country the conqueror of one-half of it. This is not the way to heal the wounds of a civil war. Peace, magnanimity, frater nal kindness this is the spirit which we hope the isortn will seek to exhibit toward the South in the next Presidential canvass. No man in the nation more signally repre sents this spirit than the kind-hearted North ern farmer who has gone to the South to plant with his own hand an olive of peace in that fire-scarred land. Good men in the Southern States, of all parties, might so gen erally unite in urging his nomination that the North, notwithstanding its lingering severity of temper, will undoubtedly respect the sug gestion. As for ourselves, without being unduly for ward or rashly persistent, we aro free to Bay that our first and early choice for the next Presidency is this large-minded and humane statesman the Benjamin Franklin of his time.'
