'While we acknotiledgelhat fun iffran
chisement must come, and that the time
for its promulgation ought speedily, t to

that there are grave dangers In such a
course—dangers threatening to the peace

ing. The sullen attitude assumed by
leading exponents of ultra rebel senti
ment, the vibethreats and vicious actions
from reckless Southern residents; admon
ish -us to be cautious how we restore
to' hem their forfeited rights.
_ The disturbances in . Georgia have no
proper relation to the domestic policy of
'the organized States. For the continu
sMce.of those disorders, the Federal goy
eirmaent must be held responsible, just so
far as that government has, and the State
authorities have not, the power to repress
them, and shall fail to exercise it. Georgia
is in law, and should be in fact, today,
still under the Xederal tutelage. Her
case is certainly not that of a people who
are themselves only and wholly responsi

We regard the Federal responsibility
for the domestiqpeace of these States - as
measurably at an end. from the hour that
we recognize their complete restoration
to the Union. Thenceforward, so long
as their local governments 'shell. vlolate
none of the fundametital stipulations at
tending upon that' restoration, we must
agree that the people' or Alabama, or the
Carolinati, as of Pennsylvania or tows,
shall be perfectly at liberty to indulge
themseivei in any degree of ,variety
of, public or private outrage, which
their laws shall permit or their
local authorities shall see fit to wink
at. Let them murder and burn, sullied

shall keep their hands off from any Fed
eral rights either of individuals; or of the
nation at large. lip! their affair, not ours.
We can stand it if - they can. We may
be sure that thty will ultimately find their
own interests in quite another policy—and
that we need not expect any permanent
change until they shall choose to inaugu
rate it themselves.
Are we to hold those States and peoples
foreiier in the Federal leading-strings ?
Are we so greedy of needless responsibil
ities, that we can leave none,to the peo
ples, and their authorities, who, are to
that extent, alone !directly concerned ?
The States reconstructed and restored

of their local powers urger the Federal

of theirs can over "shakeoff, which no

must give them the rein, which we have

The question of Lay Delegation in the
Methodist Episcopal Church, seems to be
getting fair/y before the membership of
that denomination. We believe whenev
er the issue is clearly set forth that the peo
ple will look more favorably upon the
nieasuret than heretofore. Many who
bitterly opposed the reform, when the
vote was taken before, are now in favor
of it, simply because that it does-not pro
pose representation in the same form that
other Methodists have adopted, and be
cause it does not interfere with'the ap
pointments of ministers. Wbat is propo
sed Is simply to introduce laymen into the
General Conference, the :aw making body.
The vote in some of the leading cities,
where there are a number of churches, has
been about the ratio of eighteen for, to one
against. The Christian Advocats of this
city reports as follows: Pittsburgh Con
ference,l44o for, 172 against; Erie Con
fereuce, '706 for, 251 against, and other
Conferences, principally in the West,
1,871 for, 458 against. By private letter
from New Yorke we are advised that the
vote reported to the Local Committee et
that point was two thousand for, four
hundred against. The general impression
prevails that the measure will be carried,
although strenuous efforts are making by
some persons to prevent the adoption of
this'new feature, and, too, especially, by
ministers who were members of the late
General Conference, who agreed to sub
mit the question to the "godly considera
tion" of the people. Several of the
churches in the two cities and immediate
neighborhood have voted. Liberty Street
takes the vote Tuesday next, ani we be
lieve Smithfield will likewise next week.
The fifteenth quadrennial session of
the United Brethren Church closed its ses
sion at Lebanon ,Pa ,on the first inst. Nev
er heath at Church enjoyed such prosperity
as during the past four years. No ma
tirial change was made in the Book of
Discipline. The Conference made pro..
vision that the Superintendent's of Sun
day Schools Joust be members of the
Church. The law prohibiting the intro
duction of ' choirs and instruments of
music into their churches, was modified
as tote a rule of advice. The law-on se
cret societies was not materially modified.
Like the old law, it is prohibitory. An
effort was made to provide for lay dele
gation, but this - body was not ready to
adopt it. Rev. Milton Wright was elect
ed editor of the Religious Telescope, and
Rev. D. Berger, who has so ably man
aged that paper for the last four, years,
hea l been appointed associate editor.
Well as the paper has teen conducted;
we expect the editors will be able to
furnish us with even a better paper than

of the Synod which suspended George

roftised, a competent person will be sent

Supper. The excrement is not to be

.The progressive Jews are urging reform
in certain things, especially in the matter
of Church ritual: A meeting or Rabbis
is to be held in New York City shortly,
to discuss various topics relating to re
form. Many ofthe more liberal are
in favor of not only giving up the Hebrew
praying in the Synagogues, but of abro

announcing that a personal Messiah is no

The Repabllit SituaUon ~In Pennsyl
The efforts of such papers as the Pitts
burgh Commercial and the Harrisburg
Mate Gnard.to make the people believe
that the Republican party Is a corrupt
concern; have been attended with this
much success. They have spread wide
throughlthe country the impression that
the Republican party of Pennsylvania is
on its list legs, and will be defeated next
fall.nnless something is done for its relief.
This has brought together quite a convo
cation of party doctors to suggest reme
dies for its sickly state, As usual the
panacea's proposed for its ailments are
numerous as those who consider
themsel v es,called on to prescribe
them. The dominant party in Pennsyl
says one of these physicians (in
Washington) "will succumb next fall un
less the Alabama question be made a
party issue," "One more chance re
, mains,"; says another (in New ,York)
"for the Republicans to secure a victory;
they meat join forces with UM working
men and labor reformers." third of
these sage curators noticing that the, Ty
pographical Union has decidaadiersely
to the negro's claim of admission to Mina
bershipc thinks that the Republican party,
to save itself, should side against these
As the doctors in this case, as in most
others, disagree, the party is at liberty to
choose its own course. In the first place,
we do hot think its disease is nearly as
bad as represented, and in the second
place, the remedies offered would certain
ly make; it worse. When the Republican
party orthia state, or of the country, is
driven to seek outside and demagog,.
!cal banes to save its life, the peo
ple wili know that its life is not
worth 'saving. The Party was born
and raised on the principle of equal
rights. !When it deserts that and seeks to
attach itself to othet and less noble prin
ciples it will die, and ought to. The Re
publican party in Pennsylvania is in
some danger. It has been brought
into it partly by the corruption and ex
travagance of some of its official repre.
seatativea last winter, but far more by the
false assertions of certain journals calling
themselves Republican which have perse
veringly represented that corruption and
extravagance as pervading the whole or
ganization. The true remedy for this
state of things 18 to Choose good men for

Lions. In Allegheny county we have al
ready done so, and as far as we can hear,
in many other counties of the State. If
now the' same principal be applied to our
