Judj;e Randall, of Kentucky, has recent
ly declared the law of that State, denying
to negroes the right to testify in a court of
justice in cases in .which a white man was a
party, to be in opposition to the Fourteenth
Amendment, and therefore void ; and in
accordance with this enlightened decision,
ruled the testimony of negroes admissi
ble in all cases, equally with that of white
A cotemporary says, (he defection of the
Johnsonites did more to consolidate the Re
publicans and to crytalize their opposition
to the Democracy than any other event in
the history of the party. Without going
over nominally to the enemy, they bung on
to the verge of Republicanism while bid
ding for the favor of the opposition. The
secjuel is still fresh in the public mind.
Their fate will be that of the "Liberal Re
publicans" and other disorganizes.
Another Coustitutiunal Amendment, milk
ing the maintenance of free schools coui
pulsoty, and forbidding State, territorial,
coun'y,or municipal aid to religious schools,
has been suggested in the Senate. This
measure goes over under the Senate rule,
indefinitely, but it will uot be many years
before the country will demand its adoption
with such unanimity that its consideration
can no longer be postponed by Senate rules
or Democratic objections.
It is announced that Gen. Spinner, the

The Ohio Legislature has taken in band
the strife and contest continually arising

Among the many devices resorted to ii,
the south to hide the full extent of the out

who voted the Republican ticket, to publish
cards setting forth that for the future they
renounce all connection with the republican
party, and adhere to the "white man's"
Tarty. This is done to give the impression
north, that the Republican party is losing
strength through the voluntary renunciation
of its former members. The compulsion is

A Case of Bribing.
It seems that the power of the Republi
cans in the New York Legislature to defeat
all undue partisan legislation, was suddenly
overcome by the treachery of a member
named Winans, who has gone over to the
Democrat.', for a price, it isaid. The sum
paid to Winans, h stated at seventy fire
thousand dollars. The IWss in referring to
the treachery of Winans says :
' "The bribery of Winans, the Republican
in the New York Legislature" who went over
to the Democracy, is on the whole one of
the healthiest iJ.irns of these degenerate
times. When only one man out of sixty
three is willing to sell himself, and when he
exacts seventy-fiv-e thousand dollars as his
price, it shows that political virttse is still
held in some esteem, even if it be a pecuni
ary one. If only one man in this number
iir every Legislature of the country puts
himself up at sale and demands sueh a liiub
bid, corruption and bribery will soon disap
pear entirely. And what makes this case
of Winans all the more encouraging is that
he was a Republican. How many Demo
cratic legislators hold themselves at so high
a figure? One-tenth of it would satisfy
most of them and conciliate their constit
uents." The Democratic Addkess. The Dem
ocratic Congressmen have just issued an ad
dress to the countrj. which, a cotemporary
says, "is remarkable for two things only
its misrepresentation of some facts and ex
aggeration of others. For instance, it is sta
ted that the entire expendituresof the Gov
ernment for the fiscal year ending June 30,
1861, were only $62,K)0,00O,and that $164,
000,000 were expended for exactly the same
items in 1870. ' This leaves out of the count
the fact that the fiscal year of 1300 was an
antebellum one ; that the expendituresof
the Government for the collection of the
revenue have been tripled since : that a new
and costly, but just and humane policy has
been inaugurated towards the Indians ; that
pensions have b ;en Immensely increased,
and the army and navy much enlarged. No
conscientious body of men would be guilty
of so flagrant a misstatement as this of the
Democratic Congressmen, and no citizen
possessing common sense will believe it.
Such falsehoods damage their authors more
than tbey d those whom they are intended
to injure. Any fair-minded set of men, in
stead of attacking the financial policy of
the Republican party, would praise it for
its honesty and ecouoiny."
Rf.pi-rucan Unity. In his letter from
Washington in this week's Lulrprnilcnt, Mr.
D. W. Uartlet, the able correspondent of
that paper, gives the following hopeful view
of the present and future of the republican
party: "The political situation here lias
greatly improved. In Congress the Repub
lican members are once more united and
victorious. The soreness occasioned by the
San Domingo controversy in the Senate is
nearly gone; the relations of the Executive
with the Republican opponents of the an
nexation scheme have greatly improved;
and we may confidently look to a perfect
union among all Republicans when Congress
meets again in Decealer, if those who
were prominent in the recent unhappy con-
iMjicisies act wita wisdom and magnatutni
ty. Let us remember, however, that no
single per-nn owns the Republ;ean party,
be he Senator or Executive, and that, the
rifxt President;! campaign is to turn on
principles, and not men. Republicans will
admire and love him most who is willing to
tiiuke the greatest sacrifices for the success
of the nritieiules of the Rsnnblipin r-,,t
Rkeaki.no Ranks. In every direction
trouble stares the Democracy in the lace.
There is prx-peet of an insurrection in

"It is knoivn that the Hendricks pro
gramme for the campaign of 1872is to nom
inate Niblaek for Governor. But another
element of discord has leen introduced inio
the Democratic household. Tbe fued in
the ranks is augmenting. It is known that
a caucus was held a short time, since at New
Albany, by leading Democrats, with a view
of putting W. C. DePauw upon tu.t vulwr-

gre.-s and the leaders of tbc party through
out the State manifest great anxiety. Be
tween Woolley and the new departure, Mr.
Hendricks is placed in rather an uncomfor
table position."
The accounts as to the result of the re
cent election iu Connecticut are as incom
prehensible as ever the canvassers, it
seems, having no authority to investigate
the allegeged frauds. The whole subject
will have to be investigated by the Legisla
ture, when it meets. The indications are
that Jewell has been elected.

Texas has earned tbe respect of her sis
ter States of the nation by the way she has
set to work to clean out the Ku KluX on
her own hook. If the other States would
follow her example Congrass would soon be
relieved of the awkward position it is now
in. In Texas, the first of July last, accord
ing to the oflleidl report of the Adjutant
General, there were 2,700 known crimiuals
evading arrest in 10S counties, of whom
702 were murderers and 413 guilty of ns
ault with intent to kili. At that time a
special mounted State police, consisting of
1' men, was organized, and on the first
day of January 978 of these criminals had
been committed for trial. The work has al
so been vigorously prosecuted since, so that
now the State is quite tree from the Ku
Klux. and there is a general feeling of se
curity. It is much better for the soul hern
States to do this kind of work for them
selves, but if they won't undertake it, they
must not complain if the General Govern
ment does it for them, and somewhat rough
ly, too.
Terrible Octrage. The Pittsburgh
Gazette says another terrible outrage has
been reported from Columbia, South Caro
lina. A party of twenty masked men en
tered the house of Mr. Lawson II. Long, a
merchant, and having dra.cged Iiini out,they
inflicted no less than one hundred and sev
enty lashes upon bim, and ordered him to
leave the State in fifteen days under penalty
of death. Thoy then went to the house of
Isaac Cowlcs, a colored man. dragged him
out and shot him. Tho only known offence
of these two men, was that they were Re
publicans. It seems, however, that to be a
black Republican merits death in the' opin
ion of these men, while the offence of being
a white Republican is expiated with lashes
and being driven out of the State.
Congress adjourned on Thursday last,

Speaking of beet sugar industry, the sta
tistics show that France, Germany, Austria,
Russia, Belgium and Holland are the coun
tries m which most has been done and the
most successful results obtained ; but all
parts of all these countries are not equally
adapted to Its cultivation. The middle and
South of France are said to be too hot. In
1870 the product of France was, 300,000
tons. Germany 250,000, Austria 175,000,
Russia and Poland 135,000,Belgium 50,000.
ThtB great success has begun to .attract at
tention in England, where the nse of sugar
is steadily increasing its consumption being
greater, proportionately, than that f any
other couutry. In 18C9 it was forty-four
pounds to each person ; in 1870 it had risen
to forty-seven. Last year's imports exceed
ed 700,000 tons, equal in weight to one
eight the consumption of wheat, and more
than one-fourth the imports of wheat.
Division of Texas. The question of
dividing Texas into three States is exciting
much attention and discussion among the
people and presses of that section. It is
certainly large enough for such, a divUion,
and it must soon take place. The Houston
Union proposes the following plan of divis
ion : First, to make three States at pres
ent one west of the Colorado, one between
the Colorado and Trinity, and one east of
the Colorado ; second, we propose to cut off
northwestern Texas by a line from the
mouth of tbe Big Wichita on Red river to
the mouth of the lib Peeos on the Rio
Grande, thus leaving territory for two large
States when it has the requisite population.
This would at onoe provide for five States,
and would settle the division question for
ever. France. War still continues in France.
