At an election in Richmond, Virginia,
last week, auroral hundred registered ne
grecs were prevented from voting by having
forgotten the names under which they were

Mg officer estimates that at least one-third
of the blacks in that State will forfeit their
newly acquired privilege of voting by reason
of their inability to remember ut the polls
their names its they were registered. This
gives a hopeful view of .tbe, intelligence of
the now black Republimn citizens of the
United States,, under whose auspices ten
Suites are to be reconstructed and the
American Union restored. These new-born
citizens were registered but a few weeks
since, and have al ready forgotten their H 1411114,

enfranehised and invested with all the privi

country governed by the people. They can

PRIMIDENT JOHNSON ANDTIIE
As won as the :result of the California
election was known many congratulations
were tendered or sent to President Johnson.
Whether he has also beenfolieitated on the
[democratic gals in Maine we are not in
formed ; but his share of the credit is just
as great in the one ease as in the other ; or
to speak more bluntly, it is nothing:in either.
We do not deny that the great reaction
ought to give hint:considerable satisfaction,
although nothing he has done has had any
tendency to produce it. As a patriot, hon
estly desiring the re•a►hnission of the South
ern States, he must, of course, be glad to
We his adversaries weakened. Nothing
could be more dlturlish or illiberal than to
question his right to rejoice in the joy of
the'Democratic party. We should be quite
willing to heat the bush and let him catch
the bird, if the country could thereby be
benefited. But inastm. as President
Johnson has no proper identification with
the Democratic party, and as a false im
pression of that kind would be a drag on
the reaction, it may not be amiss to place
the subject in its true light. The zeal with
w hi c h t h e Democratic press has defended
the President se flu• as it deemed hint right,
must mislead nobody to suppose that he is
in any degree responsible for us, or we for
him. Ile can take unjust offence at our IT
-1110i:161;g his modes of operation, since
he has uniformly di carded and repudiated
Mr. Johnson is in no sense a Democratic
Pres' , lent. IVe did not elect him, we have
no claims upon bun, nor have we ever set,
up any except the common claim which all
citizens have upon every Chief Magistrate,
that he shall honestly support and defend
the Constitution. 1f Mr. Johnson, elected
as a Republican, had ever become a Dow
nenitic President, the change would be dated
fron► such a reorganization of the personnel
of the administration as placed the govern
ment in Demooratio hands. But no 'such
reorganization has been made. Instead of
a Cabinet consisting Of well whom the Dem
ocratic party respect and confide in, Presi
dent Johnson has chosen to be surrounded
by it Republican Cabinet, front the first day
of his a-col-ion until now. lle has had
occasion to appoint several foreign minis
ters ; but in no case has he appointed a
Jlemoer•at;in good standing with the party.
General Dii, the most, respectable of hi,:
appointees, though calling himself:a Dem
erat, long ago dissolved his connection with
the Demovratie party. 7 51r. Cowan, Mr.
Raymond, and Mr. Greeley, who have been
successively, but unsuccessfully, nominated
to the vacant Austrian; mission, are highly
respectable gentlemen, but they:have never
been Democrats. Central Kilpatrick, alter

party I,y a Campaign or venomous scurrility
and eras promptly rewarded by
the nii,,sion to Chili. This was more than
neglect ; it wasyntre than an ordinary at
front ; it was an open an wanton insult.—
New Jersey was the only Northern State
which the I party had carried for
McClellan, and our pride would have been
touched by its loss even if it had been ta
ken front us by fair means. But when nut
rages scurrilities prevailed against us in the
home of our chosen candidate., the immedi
ate promotion of the head libeller to a full
foreign mission was an net which laid the
party under no deep obligation to the Presi
dent. We did nut complain even of this
insult, for we had no claims of any kind on
Mr. Johnson, and there was no good reason
why a Republican President should nut ap
point to office men who had rendered ac
ceptable services to the Republican party.—
We must not be understood to make the al
lusions, even now, in a toned' complaint.—
They are intended only as proofs that Mr.
Johnson has never been, nor ever sought to
be considered, a Democratic President. We
happen to agree with hint on a point on
which he differs from the party ; but that
must nut be taken as an indorsement of his
maladroit, nnstatesmanlike, unpopular ad
Mr. Johnson not being a Demoerat, we
ant unwilling that, with his great weight of
unpopularity, he should be classed as such.
The contention between hint and Congress
is a fight within the Republican party. The
distracted condition of the country is eharg•
able upon the party that elected both, the
President and the majority of Congress, and
we expect no relief or remedy but in the
overthrow of that party. The Republicans
cannot fix upon us any part of the odium
which has resulted from their own success in
the elections. Let the fault lie where it may
we are responsible fur no part of it,. We
have not been in power. We are no more
answerable fur the Republican President
whom we did not eleet, awl have net been
permitted to advise, than we are for the Re
publican Congress which has kept up a per
vernal quarrel with him. Mr. Johnson is
your President, Messrs. Republicans, not
ours; from your party he has taken all his
responsible advisers on you he basbestow
ed all his offices be has kept you in power
by mistakes and blunders wore servieable to
you than co-operation; and whether you
doom him a blessing or a bane, its origin is,
in either case, to be traced to your selection
and your votes.
In the recent talk about Cabinet changes,
the Republicans have been willing to Ihvor
the impression that Mr. Johnson intends to
form a Democratic administration. Even if
be were willing, and representative Demo.
orate would consent, ouch an arrangement
would be every way undesirable. Its only
dim would bo to reader the Dessoeredo
party responsible for blunders and misman•
ag►mleltt, perpetrated against its judgment
and in contempt of its wishes. We should
gain a few paltry °flees without influence,
and go into the Presidential election vulner•
able by all the weapons that theßepublicans
hurl at Mr. Johnson. As he gave us no aid
when he might have aided us, why should
we now, when ho has no longer anything
valuable to give, imperil our cause by as•
suming the burden of his unpopularity ?
As things stand ; the Republican invectives
against Mr. Johnson impeach their ability
to choose a good President. A man might
as wisely think to impro"e his social stand
ing by living with somebody's repudiated
wife, as for the democratic party to expect
any advantage from adopting, in the last
days of his unsuccessful administration, a
fettered President elected by their enemies
and popular with nobudy.—N. Y. World-

Ramem. ExTISAVIIIANCE. —The whole
expense of the War Department in 1860
was sixteen and a-half millions, while in
1867 it is estimated by the Treasury at forty
seven millions, both being periods of' peace.
To give the negro the (hirer to rule us,
therefine, costs the nation annually thirty
millions. Of this amount, Pennsylvania's
share is at least one tenth, and her industry
must annually pay three millions of dollars
to support a policy that cloaca her woolen
mills and stops her factories.
In our State affairs, mismanagement, cot.•
niption and extravagance are thcirule. In
1860, the whole amount of money appropii.
ated and expended, independent of funded
debt and military expellees, as shown by the
treasury, was nine hundred and ninety-at/he
thousand dollars. In 1867, excluding the
same items, the Radicals appropriated and
expended one million three hundred and
seventy nine thousand dollars. In 1865,
excluding the same items, the Radicals ap
propriated and expended two millions and
eleven thousand dollars. The reports orate
Auditor General show these bets, and prove
that in six years of Radical rule our cash
expenses have more than doubled.—Eqslon
The startling filet has come to light that
in Virginia secret military organizations of
negroes exist all over the State. They have
been provided with arms by the Nigger
Bureau or some other Radical Agency, and
their purpose is, no doubt, an insurrection
and the massacre of the whites, the same as
happened several years ago in St. Domingo.
The whites arc all unarmed and living in
constant fear. And yet it is raid that we
boast of a republican form of government
Such are the means which our Northern
Jacobins are using to accomplish their in
fernal purposes. It is no wonder that the
President has oommenoed to overhaul
these scoundrels and brim them to Judg
ment. We have been inaned to look upon
Gen. Schofield, in military oonamand of
Virginia, as the best of all the Rump sat
raps, but it' he tolerates those nigger organi
sational he cannot be put out of the way too
quickly. The hot is not one of these des

ished, and let the country have pesos.
A Supentlllons Tenant
The relations between landlords and ten
ants would Leta more amicable than they
commonly are if both sides wore not so often
exacting and hard to plane. One party is
inclined to think be gots too little rent, and
is called upon to make repairs too often, in
view of his heavy taxes, and becomes gloomy
over the perishable nature of dwellings
made with hands, and the other , part+
thinks that his repeated payments of rent
would eventually amount to more than the
dwelling cost when it was new ; and still,
though a tenant his whole life, be cannot
lay claim to a splinter of it ; and he sees no
reason why his landlord should be reluctant
to make any repairs he may arik,consideriag
that it is but an improvement upon thelarab
lord's own property that he requests, Thus
their conflicting interests seldom leave both
Not long since a certain housekeeper call
ed and thoroughly inspected an old but sub
stantial and well•repaired house to let, and
was apparently well satisfied with it, when
the landlord chanced to remark that his last
tenant was a gentleman of high respectabil
ity, and had lived there for over thirty years
without ever desiling a change.
"And what made him go at last 7"
"Why, madam, it wasn't his fault nor

"It don't hurt a house any, tna'atn to have
a person die in it."
"You may think so, but I think it un-
lucky. Besides, if I live here, I should al
woys be thinking of the dead man. I feel
faint now, while I think of it."
"The man wasn't murdered ma'atu. Ile

"I presume so, but still I think it un
lucky to have any one die in a house."
"People must die somewhere, ma'am."
"And we certainly don't want to die out
o f doors."
"I know it," repeated the lady firmly ;
"but that don't alter it a bit. I always said
and always shall, that I never would and
never could live where a person had been
and died, if I knew it. 0, horror ! how
could I ever come in and out of a front door
where a body had been carried ; how could
I enter a room where a man had died, and

he was decorated in the parlor for visitors

"But what of that? Once gone, he'llnet

"I know it ; but there the life has de
parted out of him, and out of the house—
that's what I think of it, if I express my

me as if it left unluckiness behind."
