The New York World a.ks: "Is the
Democratic party dead?" It has been so
reported, and, judging by the odor ariaing
trom it, we are inclined to say yes and tjnite

The New York Snn now supports Sum
ner. If that is not sufficient to alienate
what few friends the leaiy, querulous Sena
tor has remaining, they must be, like the
rights of American citizens, inalienable.
A circular from the Commissioner of Ifi-
ternal Revenue makes an important change
in the regulations fur assessing the income
tax. The inquisitorial examination is to be

a statement under oath of the gross taxable
income, after making ail legal deductions.
The return of fifty thousand dollars con

many persons exist who are conscientiously

up their indebtedness, the public debt will

A Democratic caucus at Albany has re
solved to abandon the attempt to change
the day of the New York State election in
order to escape the provisions of the United
States election laws. They evidently prefer
to run the chance of continuing their frauds
in spite of the law, than to admit, as they
would by such action as was proposed, that
they had heretofore been guilty- of the
The New Hampshire Democratic Repre
rentatives were elected week before last,
and seated last week. One of the new
members has progressed so rapidly in legis
lative lore that he has introduced a finan
cial policy allowing no taxation but for
revenue, and constituting a special commis
sion to report a reform of the tariff. The
resolutions were referred to the Committee
on Ways and Means.
The rapid rate at which the loan of the
United States is being taken, places beyond
all question its early and successful absorp
tion. English capitalists have proposed for
two hundred million dollars, and the sub
scriptions in this country are rapidly in
creasing. We are thus passing the crisis of
our financial efforts, and the country must
shortly feel the improved condition of af
fairs in all the channels of finance and
J. Q. Adams, of Massachusetts, has dis
covered the key to a Democratic victory.
He says : ''Democrats must be Democratic
to succeed." If Democrats will only be
Democratic he promises them a victory.
But then, after all, that is the great difficul
ty. Democrats are not Democratic, and
have not been for years, nnd under the
present manifestations of the South and
their leader, Blair, in Congress, there does
not seem much chance of their being Demo
cratic for some lime to come. Under thb
phase of the case, we suppose J. Q. Adams
- gives up all hope of success.
It is wonderful how suddenly, the Demo
crats have transformed Charles Sumner into
a sair.t, hero and martyr. We should not
be surprised if they invited him to be their
candidate for President. His only rival in
that party will be Wendall Phillips, who is
much stronger in the denunciation of Gen.
Grant than Mr. Sumner. Which of these
two radical reformers arc now ahead in Dem
ocratic circles it is bard to tell. Both have
been transformed, as if by the touch of
Aladin's lamp, into "great and honest
men," where, as they were, bat a few days
ago, all that is vile and dishonest.
It seems that matters do not go entirely
smoothly with the Joint Hi,;h Commission.
The difficulty turns in part on the presence
of sumo tory element in the Gladstone Cab
inet, and in part on the anxiety of Canada
to get all she can out of the negotiations.
The tory element in England oppose any
concessions on the Alabama question, while
Canada opposes auy settlement that will not
give her ample indemnity for the surrender
of her fishing advantajes. Thus difficulties
are engendered. But it is probable a basis
of compromise will be discovered, aud all
will yet be satisfactorily adjusted.
Ohio- will next fall have to elect a Gover
nor, and, although the active campaign will
not open for some months, the friends of
the several candidates are already puttiog
their favorites forward. Among the gen
tlemen named for the Republican nomina
tion aie such experienced public men as
Hon. Ben Wade, Hon. Rufus P. Spalding,
Hon. Ralph Buckland, Hon. Peter Odlin,
General Cherwood, General Lee, and a half
dozen others not so prominent. ' The con
tent in the Democratic rank is said to lie
between Pendletoo and Groesbeck, although :
tbw are a pumber of lesser lights anxious '

' Worth Eemembering, .
The coarse being pursued by the Democ
racy, in the Pennsylvania Legislatare.clear
ly demonstrates that they are playing a des
perate game to defeat such legislation as
will directly effect the people in genera, i. e.
the apportionment bill, the bill authorizing
a Convention to revise the State Constitu
tion, and the appropriation bill, unless their
scheme to repeal or emascu-ate the registry
law is acceded to by the Republican majori
ty in the House. This determination on
the part of the Democracy the for! legis
lation is revolutionary in its character; and
we hope that the Republican members in
the Legislature will unitedly and resolutely
spurn all advances towards a recognition of
this Democratic conspiracy. The Reiftry
law prevented the perpetration of innumer
able frauds upon the ballot box since its
passage ; and had the law applied to the
late special election for a Senator in Phila
delphia, Mr. Lyndall would have been re
turned by an overwhelming majority, and
the State and the people thereby saved the
humiliation of a dead lock in Legislation
through the acts and votes of Mr. Dcchert
who holds the seat by frauds. The success
of Mr. Dcchert by the most unblushing
frauds, and the refusal of the Democratic
majority in the State Senate to allow Mr.
Lyndall to investigHte those frauds, are the
very strongest arguments in favor of retain
ing the present Registry law intact
It is an indisputable fact that the people
of Pennsylvania arc in favor j)f Constitu
tional Reform to prevent many existing
abuses through special, as well as general
legislation ; and if their wishes are not real
ized at the present session of the Legisla
ture, it will be by the action of the Demo
cratic majority in the Senate, which has
thus far defeated erery effort on the part of
the Republicans to accede to the wishes and
desires of the people. Then let the respon
sibility of the defeat of all legislation for
the relief of the masses rest upon the guilty
authors, and not upon the Republican mem
bers who have battled manfully for the
rights of the people.
The Ku-Klcx and Democracy. The
Democrats and their allies, the Ku-Kiux
miscreants, are rapidly bringing the Presi
dential canvass into shape. A number of
the roost prominent members of the South
Carolina Legislature have been compelled
to flee from the State, and outrage against
Northern men and Unionists are becoming
more frequent all over the South. A pri
vate letter Irom Jacksonville, Florida, in
forms us that last week a large lumber mill
was set on Gre, and with a considerable
quantity of lumber, burnt, the owner, a
Northern man, who bad made himself ob
noxious, having previously been "warned."
An unsuccessful attempt was made to fire a
hotel there, not long since. The letter says
that this state of things is owing in some
measure"'to a certain class of Northern men
themselves, who disregard the duty they
owe to cultivate good feeling and harmony."
If Democrats in the North are not in actu
al sympathy with those wha commit outra
ges, let ' thmn say sc. It is aifclonbtedly
true these Ku-Klux suppose they have the
sympathy of the Northern Democracy, and
(brought Democrats fay or f, they are
right in tbtis supposing. It is in this way
that the Presidential Geld is being pretty
rapidly and accurately staked out.
Showing the Cloves Foot. Mr. Jef
ferson Cjvis, on the occasion of the recep
tion recently giveu him by cinzons of Sel
ma, Alabama, made a speech in which hi ,
is reported to have declared that State sov
eignty, although defeated in the late strug
gle, will ultimately triumph ; its day of suc
cess might not come in his time, but he
would live and die in the belief that it would
surely triumph. He also said that he had
never asked pardon tor what he had done,
aud he never would, for he felt that he had
done right. He had always been willing to
give his life for his people, and now, if any
Yankee power wanted his blood to atone for
any action of the Southern people, they
could take it. Commenting on this speech
of Mr. Davift, a Selma paper say? it is the
first time he has touched, in public, genuine
political questions, and hints that he. is
probably encouraged to enunciate his still
rebellious notions from recent transpirings
in public affairs. His utterances are com
mended to the portion of the Northern press
and people which has been led to believe
that the cause of the rebellion is a "dead
issue" in the minds of the leading men at
the South. Is Mr. Davis preparing to com
pete for the next Democratic Presidential
Affairs in France i.re rapidly approaching
a crisis. The Red revolutionists of Paris
are becoming more and more violent, and the
guillotine is even hinted at; in fact, a des
patch announces that that terrible instru
ment is to be shortly erected' and that the
houses of its victims have already been mark
ed The watchword of the Commune is:
'"Death to the rich death to the land own
ers death to the priests." The Versailles
government has prepared a plan of attack
on the city, and the insurgents, to forestall
them, contemplated attacking their armies on

to end? Better the restoration of the

The Michigan Senate has passed a bill to
the effect that all public officers guilty of

State Senator Conuell presented on Mon
day a very important bill. It provides that
"on and after January I, 1872, all moneys
received from licenses shall be paid into the
several county treasuries instead of the State
Treasury as heretofore." Our State finan
C3S are in such a flourishing condition, and
our State debt is being so fast liquidated,
that we have arrived at a poiut wltprein we
can calculate to a certainty not ouly our re
sources, but our wants. Every year our
income is increasing, and the present year
will demonstrate that we can easily spars to
the counties the tax from licences, and still
have sufficient for State wants. In 1867
our revenue was about five and a half mil
lions. We relieved real estate from taxa
tion yielding one and a half millions,and yet
last year we had a revenue of six millions,
sufficient to py our expenses and one mil
lion and a half of our State debt, and this
year it will be at least six and a half millions,
fully two millions beyond our expenses. It
is a fact well known to all financiers that' the
only way to economize in our expenses is
to so regulate our taxes that they shall yield
sufficient for our needs and no more. An
excess begets extravagance. Hence, we
say. let us lop off the revenue and return it
to the counties from whence it wai taken in
1842, when we were in need. If the coun
ties then choose to relinquish it entirely or
modify it, they can do so, and we hope eve
ry member, regardles of party feeling, will
join in passing this bill.
The apportionment bill reported by the
House Committee compares favorably with
the Democratic measure which passed the
Senate, as it does not emasculate the map
of the State, and makes a fair and equitable
distribution giving the majority party in
the State a cltnnce to elect a majority of the
representatives in both Houses, a privilege
which they were debarred from by the Ser
The House acted promptly in passing this
just and equitable apportionment bill, and
it now goes to the Senate for consideration.
The latter body has taken the somewhat
lofty position that it will compel the House,
or Republicans to act in accordance with its
dictation, or will stop legislation. Consid
ering the fact that the State Government is
Republican and the Legislature quite as
strongly Republican as Democratic each
party having one legislative body the ac
tion of the Senate has some of the old snap
of the slave-driver's whip. Three weeks
ago, the Democratic majority in the Senate
agreed in caucus, to take such action as
would compel Republicans to agree to their
measures. They seek to force a co ordinate
body to submit to their dictation. A great
er outrage wa never attempted by one leg
islative body on another. But they have
overstepped the bounds of propriety. The
gauntlet they have thrown down has been
taken up, and Republicans have determined
to come to an open rupture, and entirely
stop legislation rather than be dominated
by the majority in the Senate. If the Sen
ate will not appoint a conference committee,
and compromise the question of apportion
ment, legislation is about ended during the
present term of the Legislature. Let is be
remembered, the Republicans in the Legis
lature mro wilting to confer, and agree on
some fair nicas jrc ; thus far the Democrats
are not. The latter are therefore responsi
ble for ny lack of legislation that may fol
low. Among the things that will thus be
crowded aside is the proposed amendment
of the Constitution. In preventing this
the Democrats ate realizing, of course, their
nre.;, vrishes. But it remains to be seen
whether the presentation of this subject to
the people will not serve to illustrate their
eagerness to jircvent rather than consumate
needed reforms. This will afford an excel
lent proof, before the people, of the sincer
ity of Chirr outcry against the Republican
party for iKt effecting certain relorms, as
well as of their earnestness to secure benefi
cial changes in our State Constitution. The
Democracy, in a word, are following out
their old propensities, demanding every
thing, and if they cannot secure it, obstruc
ting legislation. We confess, however, that
in a political .sense we are neither surprised
nor sorry They are mak'ng capital for the
Republican party in the State at u most
rapid rae. ,
