Item a..,
-Our Democratic contemporary the Her
risburg Palrig, in enumerating the difff
collies which are encountered in Philadel
phia. in
,nnearthing the fraud and treach
ery nraeticed upon the Democratic party
in the late election says:
"Should an editor fearlessly lay tare to
the gaze of the public the iniquities of
these ruffians, and thus stop 'one of the
infamous sources of their supplies, he
would soon fall the victim of their re
venge. The bitted- assassin who should
stab or pistol him would run no such
risk the bravos, who dogged the steps
of Brooks. Ile would soon have cause to
feel the consequences of his temerity in
braving the assassins of the -
Should a servile and cowardly puldic
opinion become momentarily arronseil in
his vindication so as to compel the Dis
trict Attorney to prosecute and a jury to
convict his assassins, there still remains a
Governor to grant them full pardon and
immunity. 'lle solemn truth is that, the
" Rings" and their hirelings have nut
merely control of the ballot boxes, but of
every official and political avenue in the
Metropolis. What they cannot accom
plish by fiand they am ready to execute
by violmiCe., It. ie very easy to ask why
misdeeds are not exposed and punished.
Let, him who thinks it an easy matter to
encounter the wolves in their lair under
take the job. in the city they are all
putrerfa But at the Capital their claws
can be pulled by keeping out of Demo
cratic caucuses anti conventions all those
whose guilty complicity with the " Ring"
has beets mode manifest iu the recent
The dangers here stated have, we think,
no influence in screening the as yet of
foidera from exposure in this city.
The editor who should shrink from do
ing his duty from any peril to life or limb,
would be, in one judgnent, as poor a cra
ven as the soldier who shrinks from the
poet of duty from the same fear. We be
lieve the journalist in Philadelphia who
exposes the villainies perpetrated m this
city, runs no risk from wide') his own
hand and the laws may not shield
nut, it Is of little importance in com
p:lrmo!' with the great public intere,ts at
But the difficulty is far greater than
this nod mach less easy to Meet. It is the
myptery in which the collusion between
men of both parties has shrouded their
acts, that constitutes the real difficulty iii
trucking them. Self-interest seals the
lips of those' who perpetrated, and those
who profited by the frauds.
Nes-simper denunciations of incliricia
als; *idiont proof to back it, is contrary
to our notions of e justice and propriety,
and would only a ord a cheap triumph
and apparent vindication iii libel suits
and prosecutions, in which all the ma
chinery of what is here called " jnstice"
would be strained and stretched to secure
a political verdict. This risk we are in
the daily habit of braving, wion we see
our way clear to at least the public exhi
bition of the truth. Bat without the
means of exhibiting it, it would be a blun
der to give t the combination of rogues,
in and out of office, the opportunity for
an easy triumph. What we aim at and
expect to get, is proof, through those
means that compel disclosure, and open
the guilt-closed months by the process of
the law.
First in importance is the contest which
the Municipal Reform Association prom
ise. It may call to the witness-stand the
men who must tell the damning facts, or
withhold them by perjury.
Next is the Mil of Mara, pardoned out
of prison for one assassination, to which
he immediately added another. If this
is not disposed of be y some hugger-mug
ger, the Court will be able to elicit the
truth, though a District Attorney of the
United States defend the prisoner, and
his own private counsel io the first assns.
illation is the State District Attorney, who
proseccutes to. the second. But even
with these advantages let the criminal lie
tried. If he is to escape justice let it be
through another pardon, nut by hushing
up his case. Already, as we heat, the
Ring who divided the proceeds of the
great bond rubbery in the City Treasurer's
office are trying to hash it up, by paying
hack the money and avoiding an ex posit re.
Let us have no compounding of felonies,
uo mock trials of assassius. Let Mara be
tried, and set us bear from the witness
stand the men who base had a mrsterious
connection with his case. Let 'United
States District Attorney Bucher Swope be
asked to diselose the secrets of the Peni
tentiary. or be forced to screen him4elf by
pleading his right of secrecy. as the self
tamstiutted counsel of the accused. Here
are modes of reaching the truth worth a
%Litmus. of vague denunciation.
Scarcely less importaut than these judi
cial investigations is that which the Dem
4x,rattc party of this city has at last set
un foot through ita own political organi
zation. This wiil, if prosecuted with vi
gut, furnish something better titan rumor
affirmed on one - side, but just as stoutly
denied on the other, Such investigation
is due to the party andall its members.—
It is only too common with the press to
fling . accusations broadcast upon mere
surmise or suspicion. We will not do so
against our bitterest politic t! opponent;
we will nut do so it„Tunst men who have
enjayed the confidence of the Democracy.
If, as many believe, they have abused that
confidence let us have the proof of it,
apinst tbe very men who did the wrong.
lhat is whit we want ; that is what we
are after; that is what the means at the
=mood of - the press fail to extract, for
they are met by refusals to answer,
piataxible exculpations or denials, believed
by sonde, And disbelieved by others. The
case has =tuned an importance to the
integrity and future character of the De-,
=exec/ of the city of, Philadelphia that
deniands searching investigation, and the
discoveryof the truth. , Let us not stop
short of that, nor eacia tent ourselves with
vague rumors and denunciationi Which

The Lesson tram Irish History.
Father Burke and Mr, Froude are pre
senting different views of Irish history to
the American public. They are not act
nally engaged in controversy, but they
tonch the same topics, and occasionally
allude to each other—always in a spirit of
courtesy which cannot be too highly com
mended. Mr. Froude is presenting an
English view of the conquest and occu
pation of Ireland. It were vain to at
tempt, within the limits of an,editorial. a
review of the facts on ,which he relies.
They have baen contested by many writ
ers, they are contested by Father Burke,
and the date of most of them is so re
mote as to make certainty upon them the
result rather of feeling that. judgment.
If any-one will consider the difficulty of
establishing any fact in our own day that
is the subject of political leeling, he will
easily realize what uncertainty must at
tend the versions of the same class of
facts, in remote ages. The result, hot.-
ever, of all the dealings of the Britisl
government with the Irish people was very
frankly stated by Mr. Fronde in his first
lecture in New York. Be said:
I am hi re to talk common-places
about English tyranny or Irish au•riuiony,
but the fact remains that at this day, aft r
700 year's of forced connection, we are
still unmatched. If the votes of the Ir
ish population were taken, men for men,
two-thirds would ask for a separttion,
immediate and eternal. It stands con
fessed beforeull the world that alter all
our efforts we have not made friends.
We therefore, without reviewing the
disputed facts, may judge English policy ;
and English rule by a lest that has scrip-
tural authority : rlty their fruits shall ye
know them." Tons, as American, the
question has a weighty significance in the
lesson it teaches for our ou n guidance.
To-day, a party among us thrives by fos
tering the hates and prejudices of a civil
war. In a State canvass in Pennsylvania ,
where the character of public officers for ,
integrity and tidelitul is of vital moment
to the interests of the whole people, the
Radical party deafen the public ear and
confuse the public mind with ferocious
appeals to ferocious passions. They - u
gladly hold office for seven ceuiries, as!
they have for seven years, by keeping
open the wounds of civil war. They arc
deriding a policy of justice and concilia
tion, and the • whole system of military
domination and carpet-bag spoliation,
which Radicalism has inflicted on the
South, is but u copy of English rule in
Ireland. “By its fruits shall ye know it."
and know what a like system leads to
After seven centuries the aesire for sepa- I
ration or "secession" burns fierce as ever
in the Irish breast.
Mr. Fronde is disposed to ask American
judgment on this question.
It will be a very divers& judgment, if
(rankly spoken.
Radicalism would applaud what it imi
tates. The Democratic judgment may be
gathered from its tw . )sition on the Ameri
mtn phase of the same question. We ad
vocate the restoration of the just right of
the Southern States, under the Constitu
tion, and affairs by their own citizens act
ually chosen by the people, end not by
carpet-bag thieves, hoisted to power by
the bayonet. To-day the man who pre
tends to represent Mississippi in the Sen
ate of the United States is a non-resident
who came from Maine, and who made
himself Senator while he was holding ab
solute power as - military G-vernor of the
Shire: We doubt if Father Burke can
find anything svorso than that in Irish
In the question Mr. Fronde presents
and asks a judgment on, we think the
first and most %ions suggestion is to
restore to Irelan her Legislature, of
which she was corruptly and fraudulent
ly deprived, within the memory of men
yet hying. Down to a very late period of
the American contest, the people of the
Colonies would have submitted to the
rule of the English King if they could
have escaped the rule of the British Par
liament, in which they were not represen
ted. or would the admission of a few
members from America have bettered the
matter. The colonies would submit to no
taxation but that imposed by their own
Legislative assemblies. Ireland makes
the same demand. home rule mast be
gin with un Irish Legislature, exercising
the powers of a national body. It is
what, may be called there, as here, the
doctrine of "Slate Bights," that can
ulune take the place of unjust foreign rule
in local affairs.
• We hope Mr. Fronde will learn this les
son in America. and take it back with
him. In his travels iu this country he
v.ill have ample opportunity to learn it;
land, let us add, that his acquirements,
ability and courtesy entitle him every
where in this country to a friendly recep
tion and a fair hearing from the Ameri
can people. Many of them are deeply in
terested and intimately familiar with the
topics he discusses... Our land is full (4

tested against the emigration of Thomas
Emmet and other Irish r.dricts to this

Democratic party, whose purpose, was to
make oar country a sure place of refuge
to the oppmssed. It has adhered to that
purpose, and to its purpose of govern

free States possible, instead of a military

Lieutenant Hall, of the Fifth Cavalry
went to the ranche, where Mrs. Gabara
and her children were besieged by the In
dians, and found the savages one hundred

They retired to the mountains and defied
the troops. A sergeant and live men were
despatched to warn the farmers of the
Sonata Valley of the present of hostile
Indians near Hue's ranche, but they .
were attacked, and Setgeant Steward,Cor
pont William Nation, and privates Ed

tenant Ball rect-ived orders from General
Howard not to lire on the Indians in the
mountains unless be found them engaged
in actual outrages. The same order was
sent to all of the military posts south of
the Cila river, on the same day of the
murder of thotoldiers- ~ General Howard

Thirty years ago Thomas Thorn was a
jovial young sailor. Roaming about the
coasts of Maine. lie met and fell desper
otely iu love with a' young girl named
Lois Alexander. This was at a village
called Harpewell, and hero the two be
came betrothed. TllOlllll9 and Lois
agreed that he should make one long voy
age, and on his return that they should
marry. He sailed. and time rolled on un
til the period fixed for his return was long
past. The girl was either persuaded or
otherwise bejuileil; at anyraie when
Thorn came back—which he did a year
later, he found his affianced the wife of
an elderly well to do man named Wilson.
By one of those fatalities which so often
occur in this life, Thorn became a resi
dent under Wilson's roof. A close inti
macy sprang up once more between Lois
and Thomas, and report said that it was
criminal. On the morning of Sunday.
February 5, 1813, Wilson was found dead
in his bed. His skull was broken, and
investigation showed that the deed had
been committed with a pair of tongs.
A t tendon t circumstances connected
Thorn with the murder, and pointed to
Lois Wilson as accessory. Both were
tried, and he was found guilty, and she
acquited. Honorable William P. Fessen
den and Frahcis 0. J. Smith, being as
signed by the government for his defense,
made a hard tight to save Thorn, but in
rain, and the end we have recorded. He
was first emdemned to death, but the
punishment was committed to imprison
ment for ht ., : end DOW ,st the ag e of fifty
four years, he has received a pardon.
Mien first put in jail. Thorn could
neither read or writ , ; and he is now said
to be a tolerably well educated man.
