"Wc cEp the subjoined somewhat remark
able and Tery truthful editorial extract
ttpon the subject of Finance-and-Taxation,
from the last Saturday's Philadelphia (loyal)
We are now taxed in all quarters, our im
posts producing an immense amount of
money at the expense of industry and enter
prise, and to th injury of every material
interest. We have reduced the debt in one
year about one hundred and ninety-one mil
lions of dollars; but in doing so we have
pressed severely against industry in all de
partments. We have borne the immense
burden cheerfully, but it cannot be, that we
will, continue to do so. during the next
twenty-five or thirty years. Our collections
have beei at the personal expense of every
one of us, increasing the cost of living, re
ducing the availability of fixed incomes, and
depriving enterprise of its due reward. It
is not alone the volume of paper currency of
which we can complain : we have made it
more necessary that 6ucn a currency should
exist, because our needs are greater. The
amount of the burden which any ene of us
bears, if it could be ascertained, would seem
startling. .We not only pay to the Govern
ment in income tax one dollar out of every
twenty that we cam, but we pay it tribute
hi almost every thing that we eat, drink,
wear, or use. - Taxes meet'the new bom in
fant in the folds of its swaddling clothes.
They are paid unon ur slightest wants in
raiment and food. All our necessities are
taxed, and all our pleasures . must pay toll.
The celebrated English epithets against tax
ation, which traces it from the cradle to the
grave, finds it in the taxed coffin and the
taxed tombstone may now with truth be
applied to the United States. '
' This is the natural result of Black Repub
lican goverpmental mismanagement It con
clusively proves what we have always al
leged, that the opposition to the Democratic
Party were unfit to rule the country. We
need no stronger evidence of that fact, than
is fbund in the foregoing admission. The
only hope of our country, and its restoration
again to ita wonted prosperity, is in the as
cendancy of the great Democratic Party to
the reins of Government

What is Impartial Suffrage ?
An able correspondent of the New York
Times, who signs himself "Veteran Obser
ver," presents the following searching queries
relative to the ambiguous phrase so flippant
ly used by the Radicals, "Impartial Suf
frage" :. .
"It is mast unfortunate for much of our
political and religious discussion that we do
not understand the leading terms in the
tame sense, or do not understand them at
alL ' It keeps us apart often when we ought
.to bo together, and when really we mean
the same thing.
Impartial suffrage h thrown out as an idea
talre discussed. What does it mean?
What kind of impartiality ? Is it impar
tiality in numerical voting only ? Is it im
partial ty as to qualifications? Are there
to be any qualifications? If so, what?
Is impartial suffrage to be applied to sex,
thall women be excluded ? If applied to
eblor hall blacks be excluded ? If blacks
arc to vote, shall they rote without proper
iy', education or character ? Or shall they
have the New. York qualification of two hun
dred and fifty dollars? You see at ence
that no more indefinite term was ever used
(tan this of impartial suffrage. The very
first thing to be done is to settle what it
means.. It has some able advocates, and if
they expect their theory ever to succeed,
the best they can do for it is to define it clearly
and give it a practical form.
Then the people may possible see enough
good in it to adopt it. But one thing I can
assure the theorists on suffrage with certain
tyi that this American nation, remarkable
for its common sense, never will rush into
any great revolution in suffrage till it is ac
curately defined and well understood. No
such question entered into the elections, and
Congress will not act upon it till they are
instructed by the people. Let me put aside
ene delusion at once. The great Central
West,: radical enough for anybody, will have
nothing to do with changing the basis of
reconstruction offered by Congress in the
amendments till time enough has elapsed
for the South to give it the fullest consider
ation and the people to examine with care
any other plan proposed.
The JWoioiemay advocate its pet doc-
trioea, and Massachusetts elect its negroes,
and rebels reject the amendment, and Wen
dell Phillips utter his rhapsodies, but they
will not induce the West to abandon the po
sition taken at the elections, on the amend
ments to the Constitution till the question
has been submitted to their calm considera
tion and another Presidential election. The
question of admitting nearly 800,000 ignor
ant and-totally unlearned men into a can
rasa for the Presidency is a vast question, a
gigantic problem, which requires the decen
cy of delay to insure it a successful solution,
I can hardly think that those who talk of it
have realized ita magnitude. The fright to
Tote is a trust given by the whole body of
the community, and the fact that we have
already -conferred it on most unfit persons is
no reason why we should continue that dan
gerous policy." , -J

What1, affiliate with a set of men who
have always been our worst enemies ? No,
not a bit of it ! Would anybody supposo that
the old Democrats would clinch hands with
political mountebanks, such as Doolittle,
Dix, Blair, and Raymond, and throw prin
ciples to the dogs? Tie would not, but at
the same time there are some such Dorno
crats in our party, who attempted that very
thing. The true Democracy of the differ
ent States would not countenance any such
movement Although the machine was
put in motion, to form a new party, sink
Democracy, and ride into power upon the
ruins caused by the late rebellion, now star
ing every person in the face, but most shame
fully though justly failed. Those Demo
crats ?rho tried to bully the press into this
scheme, to-day hang their heads in shame.
We charge upon them the cause of our late
defeat They dare not deny it. A bold
front should have been shown all through
the late campaign by the entire Democratic
party, and our banner would have been
crowned with victory instead of trailing in
the dust A lesson has been taught certain
Democrats that they may never forget, but
profit by it
E5" Henry James Raymond, of the New
York Times, and the political trickster that
got up the so much talked of Philadelphia
Address, has wiggled himself back into the
ranks of the Radicals where he rightly be
longs. At their caucus in Washington a
vote was taken to expel him from their pres
ence which did not carry. He remained,
explained his position, which was entirely
satisfactory, and was again made a member
of the Radical party, in good standing. He,
with Doolittle, Cowan, Blair and Randall,
encouraged by certain demagogues and un
principled men, calling themselves Demo
crats, undertook to foist upon the people a
veto parti, of which they were to be the
chiefs. That attempt signally failed. There
was too much old Democratic stock left to
be purchased at so cheap a price by these
men who have always been the worst ene
mies of-the Democracy. Leave the whole
pack of them, like the sow, return to their

about impeaching President Jounson, early
in the -campaign just over, but since the

South raised against them when they under
take such a revolutionary act The Presi
dent would be more justified in having the
whole pack of Radical leaders arraigned,
and tried for treason, than they would in at
tempting to impeach him. It is evident to
every one that the Rads. have done and are
doing all in their power to keep the country

The Presidents Message.
We give up a great share of our paper to
the publication of the message. The Presi
dent still sticks to his plan of reconstruction.
His recommendations are sparse. He is
remarkably reticent, and discusses no im
mediate question with any thoroughness or
boldnes?. In style, the message is a .great
improvement, on his best previous public
efforts. But Andrew Johnson, of Tennes
see, is not Andrew Jackson, of Tennessee.
He don't take the bull by the horns. He
was in the Republican camp long enough to
be demoralized, and his present attitude
seems to us more Jike a condition of balki
ness than any. thorough resolve to rectify
the mistakes of the past and do better for
the future. His message, like his adminis
tration, is neither the one thing or the oth
er. Its reserve and propriety, however,
have taken the Eadicals aback ;" they can't
find much fault with it and they will not ac

his vote at the late election, On the ground
that ha (McDonald) had not complied with
certain provisions of the Conscription Act
Now, the truth is, this Act of Congress has
been pronounced unconstitutional time and
again, by every Judge who has possessed
the independence to venture an opinion upon
it ; or at least that portion of the Act which
makes a man, who does not respond when
drafted, a deserter, and at the same time dis
franchises him. The Supreme Court of this
State decided this law unconstitutioual, some
time ago ; besides, several eminent jurists in
this and other States have so decided, whose
ecisions have never been reversed. Yet
the Jlejmblican of this place would have its
readers infer that this Election Board did
right, and was carrying out the letter and
spirit of what everybody considered law.

Another Fatal Accident. Some three
weeks since a child of Mr. A. C. Russel, of
this place, aged about fourteen months,
swallowed a shawl pin, in length between
two and three inches. The effect was to
produce much pain and suffering. The pin,
notwithstanding its length, worked through
the passages of the intestines and was evac
uated from the bowels. But the irritation
from its passage produced inflamation, which
cauicd death on Sunday morning last. This
was a very singular case. That a pin of the
length stated should work its passage through
the intestines, convoluted as they are, and
that the chili should live so long under the
circumstances. Danville Intelligencer.
