AIm I Democracy.
The members of the Indiana Legislature,
it will be remembered, resigned,several weeks
go, to prevent tlie ratification of the Fif
teenth Amendment to the Constitution of
ttie ITnitxil Rtitoa V.n V I A J
- .uv wuujr. ilLVl.'l u-
ingly, the Governor of the State ordered an
election, to fill the vacancy thus occasioned,
on the 22d of March. Therefore, the De
mocracy who always wax quite indignant
at the mention of the idea of a Legislature
ratifying an amendment to the National
Constitution, when not expressly elected on
that issue; and confidently relying upon the
hostility ot their Indiana followers to the
"nigger" determined to embrace the op
portunity to test the practieal-ility of their
position, by re-electing the resigning mem
bers by largely increased majorities. But,
it seems, their "fond dreams" were not re
alized ; for the telegraphic dispatch announ
cing the result of the election, although very
ingeniously worded, besides stating "that
the resigning members were all re-elected,"
.reveals the significant fact "that the vote
" was exceptionally light, it having been
"found impossible to awaken public interest
"on the Issue." Thus, notwithstanding
their loud professions of hatred to the "nig
ger," the over-confident leaders failed to
bring their "frail" followers "up to the
scratch" "for the obvious reason," aa Nas
by says, "that they gravitate to each other."
From the result in Iudiana, it is apparent
that the Democratic leaders do not clearly
comprehend the true sentiments of their fol
lowers on the "nigger" question that, in-

right of suffrage to all citizens, they are re
ally in favor of the doctrine and that before
many months the masses of the party will
be among the most earnest adherents to the
Fifteenth amendment to the Constitution of
the United States. In view of these facts,
we really pity the leaders of the Democratic
party in their present dilemma. Theycirs
ed the "nigger" in the hope of getting into
political power, hut their once servile follow
ers refused to second their motion. Poor
fellows ! Next we may expect to hear of
their singing peans to the "culled gemnien"
and inviting them to tho "corners" to "im
bibe" a little more genuine. Democracy, as
the most potent way to win them into the
support of the Democratic party. Well, we
have no objection.
As important Movk. The Committee
on Retrenchment and reform, in the Penn'a
State Senate, have made a report, condemn
ing the action of the House in disregarding
the law of 1868, regulating the number of
the officers of the Legislature, and making
certain suggestions for reducing the Legis
lative expenses. I bis is a move in the right
direction, and would indicate that the Sen
ate intends to resist the illegal extravagance
of the House in attempting to pension the
supernutnary officers from the State Treas
ury. Wa hope our vigilant neighbor of the
Republican will not fail to give due eiedit to
the Senate Committee for their disapproval
of the House robberies referred to.
Sorely Afflicted our neighbor of th
Republican with G BAST "on the brain,"
judging from his last issue thirteen, out of
the twenty paragraphs appearing as edito
rials, referring either directly or indirectly
to the new President. We hope President
Grant will have some little compassion on
our very petulent, and already sorely afflict
ed, neighborly retraining from such doings
a are likely to further irritate his easily dis
uiroed mental equilibrium, lest it may be
necessary to add one more to the number of
the inmates of a eeruin charitable institution
located at HarrUburg.
Grant's Inaugural. The inaugural ad
dress of President Grant has been received
with marked approbation by the intelligent
masses of all foreign countries, and has had
the effect of reassuring the confidence re
posed in the willingness and ability of the
country to discharge its obligations. Thus
it appears that the ever snarling Copperhead
leaders ar the only individuals in the civil
ixed world who arc dissatisfied with the say- j
Jnjs of the new President. Well, let them
pitch in; they can do no harm.

Tire Fifteenth Amendment. The
Penn'a House of Representatives, on March
55th, passed the Constitutional Amendment
by a strict party vote the Senate having
passed it two weeks ago.
A Constitution for Spain.
The Spanish Corte9 has adopted a Con
stitution which, if in some particulars not
up to the modern idea of a free government,
is a wide step towards Republican principles.
The government has been changed from an
absolute monarchy to a limited or elective
one, the ruling sovereign to hold his office
for the term of eighteen years, and a suc
cessor to be elected, just as our President
is exalt -d, by a v ts of the people. Th
law making power shall consist of a Senate
and a Hous- . The n e:nbers of the higher
branches are to be chosen for the term of
twelve years, and those of the lower branch
for three years. Suffrage is to be granted
the highest and the lowest, without the dis
tinciion of race, color or creed the Span
iards thus taking a step in advance of our
own free and enlightened country in this
respect, grantit g all of her citizens the high
privilege ot selecting those who are to
make the laws. The majority of the Com
mittee are in favor of a separation of the
Church from the Government, but the mi
nority propose that whish will be probably
adopted, the Napoleonic idea of recognizing
the Catholic religion as that of the land,
but tolerating all other forms of religious
worship. Liberty of the press and meeting
in public to advocate measures or to remon
strate against public actions of the law-making
bodies, are fully guaranteed by the new
Constitution. The constitution is ex
tremely liberal and Hepublican, and after it
is adopted Spain will occupy a place among
the few free and liberal governments of the
National Bank Notes. The late Sec
retary of the Treasury, Hugh M'Culloch.on
February 27th, issued a circular giving in
structions in reference to the receipt by U.
S. Assistant Treasurers of torn, mutilated,
defaced or dirty National Bank Notes. This
circular remains in force unless modified by
the new Secretary. Mr. M'Culloch says
that the condition of these notes is gradually
growing worse, and will continue to do so
until the banks are compelled to make the
arrangements contemplated by the law for
keeping their circulation in good order. As
the Treasury Department is not by law the
redemption agent of the National banks, it
must either incur the expense of issuing new
notes or be the agent in keeping a defaced
currency in existence by paying it out again.
The Secretary, therefore, instructs the col
lecting officers of the UnitedStates to refuse
to receive notes of the National Banks which'
are no longer fit to bo kept in circulation-.
The Census of 1870. The select com
mittee, recently appointed by the House,
has reported a bill to that body providing
for the taking of the census of 1870, which,
no doubt, will be passed at tho next session
of Congress. Tho till provides that the
work shall be done by Inspectors, especially
appointed by the head of a census bureau in
the Department of the Interior, for the va
rious Congressional and Territorial Districts.
The work is to commence on tho first of
April, 1S70, and to close in two months
thereafter, but the bureau is to have exis
tence till May 1st, 1872. The basis of rep
resentation in Congress is to be fixed here
after at one member for every 170,000 of
The Effect of High Rents. It is es
timated that at least one hundred thousand
people have.been driven out of New York by
high rents during the past year. Of course,
the publie-spiri'ed people of that city are
not inclined to pass lightly over a matter
that interferes directly with the material and
numerical growth of Gotham. They com
plain loudly against the suicidal course pur
sued by the landlords, whose exorbitant de
mands have prevented the census bureau
from swelling the figures of the population
to a round million. Tie Gothamites, wo
regret to say.are not the only ones who have j
suffered during the past two years from this
Accommodates his Friends. Such of
the people as have been languishing for that
speech of Mr. Johnson's can at last be grat
ined. lie made it at Greenville, Tenn. It
is nearly as full and vivid as in the good old
days. It tells about the village Alderman,
Mayor, Representative in the Legislature,
State Senator, etc., etc, etc., renews the as
surance that the orator is not egotistic, and
proves it after the old fashion in short, pre
sents quite a favorable specimen of John
sonese eloquence. - Copies sent free on apj

"Must be Curbed, Eh ? Ex-President
Johnson in a speech delivered to the peo
tbing must be done to curb the fanatical
power of worthless majorities." Andrew
is an apt learner. A man who could ad
vance so far in his appreciation of the argu
ment adopted by monarchists, would no
doubt be the proper man to select when we
desire to return to monarchial rule. There
is not a King in the world who will not say
amen to Andrew's sentiments. They all
swear by the rights of the minority, and de
clare majorities "worthless."
Signed. Gov. Geary has signed the war
rant for the execution of Lewis Lane, (the
negro convicted, for murdering his wife in
Allegheny,) on the 29th of April.
Aroused from its Slumbers. Secre
tary Borie exerts a magical influence in his
department. If the stories told are true, the
Rip VzDwinkle slumber seems to have been
completely shaken out of it. Formerly we
are told the entire department was perva
ded by a slumberous atmosphere. A single
visit to the office of Grandfather Welles
furnished a cheap and extremely powerful
sedative. Now, however, the department
has emerged from its eight years doze to draw
on the seven league boots of enterprise un
der Borie and his able assistant. Admiral
Porter. Between them they have managed
to infuse a wonderful amount of vigor into
the oldest of the almost worm eaten hulk
composing our navy. Such a stirring u
of a sacred dust and rattling of ancient
though perfectly useless bones, was never
before witnessed in the memory of the old
est sea dog.
We have seen it stated somewhere that
naturlized citizen of the United States, of
German nativity, has been appointed Gen
eral-in-Chiefof the Japauese army by the
Mikado. The name of the distinguished
commander is given as Frank Paul, said to
have been formerly an officer in the army of
Saxony, afterward an emigrant to this coun
try, and a cliizeu of Huboken, and lastly, be
fore going to Japan, Colonel of the Fifty
second New York regiment in the war of
the rebellion. Thus, it seems to us, wit
an American commander at the head of the
military forces of Japan, and an American
statesman at the head of Chinese diploma
cy, we arc in a fair way of Americanizing
the East, or at least of exercising great in
fluence in that quarter of the globe.
Favorable to tue Insurgents. For
once the official reports from Havana are un
favorable to the cause of the Government.
The Governors of Trinidad and Villa Clara
are charged with disloyalty. A prominent
commander in the field, and a number o
volunteers are reported as having gone over
to the insurgents. Dissatisfaction in the
ranks of the regular troops is reported, and
a defeat ot a portion of the troops is openly
admitted. This does not look like "crush
ing the rebellion."
H's or P's. A Washington correspon
dent reports that, already, "the 'two H's,
or Hancock and Hoffman, are spoken of by
representative Democrats as suitable candi
dates for the next Presidential election.'
But the Montgomery Mail, on the other
hand, suggests, "Let our motto, in anticipa
tion of the next Preidcntial canvass.be, 'Pa
tience, Prudence and Pendleton'." Then the
Copperheads will cry out, "Let us have P'e.
Twenty of Brigham Young'o wives are on
their way to Washington, and Congress will
probably extend the session a few days or
weeks not on their account particularly,
nevertheless the extension will doubtless
prove a pleasant circumstance to both sides.
Of the object of their niiision, nothing is
known ; but the sending of the women is
another proof of Brigham Young's shrewd
ness in adapting means to ends.
Girard College is in a quandary. The
will of its founder requires that graduates
shall be bound out to learn a suitiable trade ;
but so few apprentices are wanted now that
the college is overflowing with boys who
haye gone through the whole course and
can't be disposed of. Mr. Girard didn't
believe that mechanics would become as
foolish as they have in banishing apprenti
ces from their shops.
J UST So ! In his Lynchburg speech, the
other day, when on his way to Tennessee,
Andrew Johnson put himself in happy ac
cord with the whole people. He remarked
that he had enjoyed more real satisfaction
in the last two weeks than during his whole
terra of office. The feeling of satisfaction
is mutual ; no act of Mr. Johnson's whole
life gave the people so much pleasure as the
going out of office.
As it Should Be. The Maine Legisla
ture is after the "baggage smasher" in good
earnest. It has pasJbd a law imposing one
hundred dollars fine, or one years' imprison
ment on any person who,, by design or care
lessness, injures baggage. We hope the
Penn'a Legislature will pass a similar law
as there is no State where, we presume, it
is more net essary.
Passing Away. The Stockbridge Indi
ans in Wisconsin are rapidly disappearing.
This tribe once numbered 10,000 warriors.
They emigrated from Massachusetts to New
York in 1789, to Ohio in 1809, and to Wis
consin in 1821. They are now suffering for
food, and number but 300 men, women and
Rather Expensive. The luxury of
Democratic frauds is rather an expensive
one, in this State. The judicial election in
vestigation case of Philadelphia has cost the
people over six thousand dollars. A good
and efficient Registry law, strictly and hon
estly enforced, would in the future prevent
all such costly Democratic luxuries.
Opposed to It. The Governor of New
Jersey, last week sent the Constitutional
Amendment to the Legislature of that State,
with a message giving reasons why it should
not be ratified. He is evidently behind the
RebeL in Georgia, oa the suffrage question.
