it was made a law. Below we give the

The news from Louisiana, as will be

in the extreme. The State is on the
brink of civil war, and the slightest
movement of either party may precipi

the conftisiou* and complication* of
this sad case, the people do not lose
sight of two salient facts: The Kel
logg Government has been pronoun
ceil a usurpation by the Senate Com
mittee, and it owes all its power to the
unauthorised interference and the un
qualified support of the Federal au
thorities. But for the presence of the

The Strength of the Democracy.
The Albany Aryu* exhibits with
vigor and clearness the actual
strength and resources of the Democ
racy and the waning power of Radi
calism. It recalls that "in 1860 the
Republican party was in an actual
minority on the aggregate vote of the
country of 947,2897 This minority it
has wiped out, not by gains from the
Democratic party, but by adding
1,032,475 voters from the colored
race. The gains of the Republican
party have not been from the white
race but from the black race, for the
Opposition to-day is able to bring to
the polls from the great reserve vote
of the country 350,000 more voters
than it was able to poll in 1860; leav
ing still a million and a half of non
voting citizens subject to the call of
that organization which shall best suc
ceed in quickening their conscien
"The country to-day contains three
millions of active Democrats, two and
a-half millions of white Republicans,
one million colored citizens, and one
million and a half of non-voting citi
zens who are so disinterested that only
deep political excitement reaches
them. The aggregate white vote of
the coontry was about 800,000 more
last fall than in 1860.
"The Democratic party has to-day
a stronger nucleus than the Republi
can party. Its three millions hare
been baptized in fire and blood for
their faith, aod are held by ties strong
er than even 'the cohesive power of
public plunder,' for tbey have re
mained banded together notwithstand
ing every reverse. They are Democrats
because they believe in Democracy.
Republicans have been such, also, be
cause tbey believed in Republicanism ;
but that party having accomplished
all it undertook to do, and its leaders
having organized as public plunder
ers, those who now believe in the Re
publican party are rapidly diminish
"Counting in the one million of col
ored voters, and yet there are five
millions of the eight and a-balf mil

the Republican party cannot bring to
the polls. With the lo of confidence
and loss of interest, now apparent
among Republicans on every hand,
and with the growing conviction that
there is security only in the tried
principles of Democracy, it requires
very little faith in the ultimate tri
umph of the right to become convinc

elections with the census reports shows

of the country, including two-thirds
of its intelligent population, are wed

courage and popular confidence can
not fail to make that sentiment effec

"Tbe State of New York contains
981,587 citizens, a majority of whom
are naturally Democratic; as has been
attested by the many and brilliant suc
cesses achieved by tbe Democracy.
Over 150,000 voters stayed away from
tbe polls last fall.
"The Republican party having
trampled upon its platform of last
J ear, and having been convicted of
igh crimes against public morality
and sound principle, it but remains
for tbe Democratic party to vigorous

people, and to redeem the Htate.
The Republican party misgoverns
wherever it rules. The application of
Democratic maxims in the conduct of
government will remedy all the con
sequences of its misrule. He prattles
lika a parrot, then, who prates of
Democratic doubt, and Democratic
dismay. Just now is tbe precise time,
above all others, when the Democrat
ic party has the right to be most con
fident Its principles are eternal, and

Speech of K\ Allornpy (irncrfll
The llud. Jeremiah S. Black has
lately delivered n noteworthy *|H*O<l>
he tore the Constitutional Convention
of Pennsylvania, in which lie i* one
of the delegate* ut Inige. .l/r. Black
wa* Attorney-General of tho Tinted
States in the day* befoie mediocrity
had become a imsspoil to that otlicc.
lie is a lawyer of unquestioned ability
and integrity, and his views on the
present condition of his own Slate are
entitled to great consideration.
Mr, Black thus speak* oi Pennsyl
vania ancient glory :
The titue was when the State of
Pennsylvania, then a mere colonv,
containing perhaps It ss than .*>o,ooo
inhahitants, had a reputation through
out the earth for independence, jus
tice, pence, and good order • for eve
rything that goes to make up the hap
pines* of nu organised society. There
was no portion of the world from
which the eyes of the l>el and wisest
men were dot tinned in admiration
toward this ooiuniuuity. All this re
sulted from tho wise und just system
oi laws adopted by the illustrious
founder of the colony.
And then he dwells on her pre-cut
What we want above all tilings
ii|H>n the earth is houest legislation ;
aud when I say we want it, I use the
word in the double son-e of needing
it and luckiug it. It cannot be de
nied that the legislature of the State
ot Pennsylvania has habitually, and
constantly, for the last twenty-five
years or more, betrayed the trust re
posed in its members; aud ibis has
gone so far that we mutt have reform
if wa would not see our institutions
perish before our eyes. There was a
time when membership of our State
Legislature was a passport to honor
aud admirmtiou everywhere, from a
Parisian drawing room to the cottage
of a peasant. Now that same Legis
lature is a sleuch iu the nostrils ul the
whole world. The cry against this
corruption comes up, not only from
every part of this house, but from eve
ry quarter of the Commonwealth. It
is borne to us on the wings of every
wind. Nor is it a mere popular
clamor. It is fouuded upon IUCOU
testable facts which have pawwd into
the dooiaiu of history, and will staud
The speaker gives two specific in
stances iu which this utter abseuce ol
morality aud houesty iu the Legisla
ture has worked terrible injustice,
l'he first is the pas-age of the charter
of the hank of the United Status m
1837. How this resulted is eloquent
ly teld :
The Bank of the United States
pushed its charter through, partly by
direct bribery aud pwrtly by a hase
combination of private interests,
which were speuly aud shamelessly
avowed upon the face of the bill it
self. The speculation exploded in
the course of a short time ; but it
scattered destruction evtrywhere. and
brought desolation to a thousand fire
sides. It disgraced the character ot
tho state ; destroyed her credit ; re
duced her public securities to torty
ceuts on the dollar ; branded her
name with repudiation and made her
name a hissing byword among all the
ostions. The perpetrators of that
atrocious outrage were never called
to any account, and their impuuity
was an invitation to ail others to go
and do likewise. For years after
ward the other banks, conbining
themselves together, corrupted the
| Legislature and robbed the public ac
; cording to the statutes in such case
made aud provided.
In the growth of the existing rail
road system is to be found the otfter
striking illustration of the unfaithful
ness of the legislators. Mr. Black
says of the company which was origi
nally organized to build a road from
Harrisburg to Pittsburg:
It swallowed up nearly all the
; properly that the State ever had. It
took it substantially as a gift ; the five
or six millions it paid was no consid
eration for the fifty or sixty millions
it got. The gift of this immese do
main was followed by a surrender on
the part of the Commonwealth of her
right to collect her own revenue,
amounting to millions more, and
which belonged to her as much as the
purse iu your pocket belongs to you.
I allude to the repeal of the tonnage
tax. I refer to that fatal, that perfid
ious statute which the Legislature,
the lobby, aud the railroad company
conspired to pass disarming the State
of her just right to collect the duty
which was her own of three mills
upon each ton of produce carried. It
was a terrible wrong; for it grouud
the face of labor to pour a great
stream of wealth into the imperial
treasury of a corporation which had
no claim of right to it. By such a
dereliction of duty on the part of the
Legislature that corporatiou has
grown so mighty that its little finger
is thicker than the loins of the Com
monwealth which created it. Her
stride is across the continent, from
ocean to ocean. Her head is in the
clouds, and the arms of her gigantic
power stretch out on either side from
one horizon to the other. The several
Legislatures which have stripped me
and my fellow citizens of our just
rights to clothe this corporation with
imperial power were treacherous to
their duty and basely unfaithful to
their high trusts.
But this company is not alone in its
Other corporations have powers
i similarly bestowed, and nearly as
i great. Four of them have hmi the
j advantage of the loose legislation at
Harrisburg, so as to secure monopo
lies a thousand fold more oppressive
than that which made the name of
Bir Giles Overreach infamous in the
dramatic literature of England.
What was the exclusive privilege of
selling sweet wines in the reign of
Elizabeth compared to the power
which puts its own price upon every
basketful of anthracite coal that is
consumed in a country like this?
We are told that these are only a
few of the instances in which the leg
islature has proved treacherous ; that
one in a hundred hns not been men
tioned, nor the worst cases selected ;
and that the corruption has now gone
so far that the veto power is utterly
incapable of stopping it.
'l he members of the lobby and the
Jromotcrs of the doctrine of Addition,
)ivision, and Silence are thus sharp
jy portrayed :
The foulest birds that wing the air
have made the tree of liberty their
roosting place, and their obscene droj>-
piugs cover alii the plains about
them—the kite, with his beak
always sharpened for some cruel re
past ; the vulture, ever ready to
swoop upon liis prey ; the buzzard,
digesting his filthy meal and watching
for the moment when he can gorge
himself again upon the prostrate car-1
cans of the Commonwealth. And the
raven is hoarse that sits there croak

Man who Attempted a rescue.
lost evening between six and seven
o'clock occurred one of those fatal acci
dent* which from time lo time startle the
community and which occasionally recall
the native heroism of unpretending wen,
who, in a moment of peril lo their fellow
creatures, are ready to ritk their own
; lives to save others.
The scene of the fatal disaster was Mr.
Lichtenwallner's limekiln, situated on
what is known a* the Hath road, about
half a Naxareth. The lime kiln has
been in operation for som. time past.| but
it was found on Sunday, that a* often hap
pens, the fire was choked and theie was no
draft through the kiln. Mr. Lichtrnwall
ner. assisted by a man named ilaldeman,
undertook to remedy this defect, and ac
cordingly, provided with an iron rod, he
mounted the top of the kiln and reached
dow nto still the lime, etc. Wbile in the
art of doing this h - was overcome by the
sulphurous fumes arising from the lime,
and, to tho horror of his companion, pitch
ed headforemost into the kiln. Ualdem.n
now made a brave effort to rescue Mr.
Lichtenwallncr. and in doing *• sacrificed
hi* own life.
He reached far down into the kiln, en
deavoring, if possible, to render hi* unfor
tunate companion some assistance, and for
a few moments strained with frantic eager
ness lo take hold of him. Suddenly he
was overcome by the noxious vapor, and
while in the act ef reaching, hi* grasp re
laxed and he fell seascle** Into the kiln,
Theodero Walter had happened tc be paw
ing the kiln and wa* near it at the tlrnc of
the accident. The action* of Haldemen
; attracted hi* attention, and when he aw
him disappear he quickly ran to the tip
of the kiln, procured a ladder, and with
out a moment'* hetilation started to go
.down. He actually reached Mr. Lichten
wallner and had raited him hall way up
on the ladder, when, to save his own
; life, he was compelled to drop the body,
and make make hi* difficult way to the
pure air. Paer* along the road wore at
tracted to the kiln, and soon Uie new*
spread far and wide, and a large number
of people gathered. The bodie* of Lich
tenwallner and Haldcman were recovered,
and medical aid wa* summoned. Dr. 1
Philip Walter, of Naxaretb, did every,
thing in his power to restore animation, 1
but without effect. —LeAiyA YnlUy Arte*.

It is most encouraging to see men of high
character and distinguished abilities tak
ing hold of tho greatest public question of
tho day and seeking in earnest to find a
remedy for tho moral pestilcne© tha tnow
rage* among us.
On Sunday ovoning President Woolsey,
of Yale College, a man of voncrahlo years
and most eminent authority, opened the
j forty-seventh anniversary of the Ameri
can Home Missionary Socioty with a ser
: inon at the Tabernacle in this city, a brief
I report to which graces the columns efyes
jterday's Tribune. "Yea, woe is unto me
jif I preach not tho gosple." was his text;
and appealing for liberal aid to heme mis
sions, and especially to those in the West,
fie plainly declared that the promulgation
of the gospel among tbe pioneers and set*
tier l ol the border, and the building up of
Christian churches there, were matters of
indispensable public duty. "Failing to do *
such a work" he said, "would be a woe in

During the war there was such earnest
nest, and prayer, and heroism that the
whole nation was lifted to a higher tone J
and it seemed as if, with victory, a noble!
career was open to the land. Hut, now
thai twiee the years of the war had passed
there was sueh corruption a* had never
been seen in the nation's history. Cor
ruption of public official* ; corruption in.

feverish thirst for speculation ; an era ofj
crime ; a weakening of family feeling ami

and especially sinee they wore demoralis

1 All good men will cordially thank Pros-!
idenl Woolsey for these words of warn-
ing which are at thfisame time words of
encouragement. It is a great thing thai

and able, should perceive ihe evils that
beset the country, and shouhi understand

WHAT IT Hit ALLY* A MoI'NTH TO

to the President and the members of the
two houses amount* to gtuu.uui a year.

eighteen million, is the exact aggregate
represented by this robbery.
If the Protidetii and Congress had put
their hand* into the Ueasury and stole:
eighteen millions of dollars outright, and
there made an end of it, the transaction
would be precisely equivalent to what they
have now done. They have not taken
eighteen millions in gross, but they have
taken the interest on that sum, and left the
