RESURRECTION OF THE E DEAD,
Years ago, when Democracy was in the
ascendant and ruling the nation, it was the
habit of postmaiters thoughont the South
ern States to exercise a sort of supervirdon
over the press by abstracting from the pub
lic mails and committing to destmctiOn all
printed documents which they were pleas
ed to consider seditious and insurrec
tionary. There was no provision of law
authorizing this surveillance, Mit the local
sentiment demanded ii in so imperious a
3vilY_ Milo enforce compliance- Let it not
. be:lnferred from thii that the poit.masters
were unwilling to; ',perform the required
set vice. Such a supposition would be en
timely erroneous. They fully shared in the
hostility, to freedom of the press, and
were glad of the immunity they enjoyed in
_ ruling Mail bags.
After a time, as the Democracy became
more distinctly pledged to stand by the
sloveholders in all their exactions, the Post
office Department was induced to promul
gate such instructions as seemed to author
'ire this _violation of the sanctity of the
mails. Under these instructions nothing
that could offend the slave barons, or re
mind the' blacks of their marthoOtl, -ob-;
tabled circulation through this public
channel. Steadily the ; range,'Of proscrip
tion 15;1U3 enlarged until eyery generous
sentiment became an offense; and the pro
mulgation of it was carefully smothered.
If a cunning artist had desired to transmit'
fl representation ,01 Deznocracy to pOsterity
Ac could have hit on. a - no. more apt form
that tl.e figure of Suspicion assorting the
contents of the mail bageimd casting into
the fire all documentsupon which the odoi
of Liberty was detected. -
With the collapse of the, rebellion this
function of the Democracy was-destroyed.
_lt became so dead as to appear to be be
-"S•onti" the reach of resurrection.' As the
mail service was re-esiablished the inviola
bility of the mails was recognized and re
ispected. This was one of the natural re
sults of - the-war; mad it would have been
permanent but for the encouragement ex
tended by the l'resident to the rebels, and
to the spirit in which the rebellion was con
ceived and born. New, proof exista, that
the prictice has been revived. A gentle-

Thia is neither unexpected nor unnatu

quences of the President's Policy.
One of the most marvellous things in
modern times is the fact that the people of
the United States have not liter - ally starved
to death. Regularly every fall and winter ,
there are direful. reports of the scarcity of
provisions. There is no wheat; no corn;
no buckwheat': no rye; no any thing.
Prices are advanced an though famine was
absolutely impending. Yet no, body is
famished.- Them is always enough and to
spare. SoMetimes it happens that before
new crops are gailsered there is grain
enough left to last a full year. This makes
no difference with 'the croakers. They are
so accustomed to lackryinatiOn and groan

Perhaps they ire less to be censured than
the multitudes who foolishly accept their
tdolorons accounts as:authentic. It is not
; easy to get up an actual famine in this
. country. There is so much of it; such
iengtis sad breadth; such diversities of soil,
, climate and'production; that a general fail
ure is quite impossible. In spots, here and
'pare, a particular crop may be damaged or
measurably fail; but, on the whole, there
is always enough, not only to "keep the

About fifteen - years ago a saddler, whom we

First ward of this city. By thrift and Industry
he had succeeded in laying by some money—
sufficient to Dui* a email home in the West.
Accordingly, t he husband And father took his
money in good aoild cash and set out for Ohio.
leaving his wife and caildren behind to watt
till he had made his selection and sent for
them to acute to him.
The family waited for tidings, but none
came. They wrote repeatedly anal made many
inquiries, but no trace of the missing man
could be obtained. At last they gave up all
hope of ever hearing of him again, and count
ed him dead. There could be no doubt that
the unfortunate traveller had been murdered

Ruth —was left a - widow, and returned to live
with her mother. • ' •

was a saddler and had come to Baltimore
twelve or fourteen years ago. Bo proceeded
to describe Ills former • "boss,"l and he describ
