On our first page will be found the pros
pectus of the New York 'Work; the best
paper in New York, and one that has no
superior in any country. As a news jour
mai we think it far excels the Herald, while
in point of editorial ability it is admitted
ly at the head of the metropolitan press.
Differing widely from its vials in some
particulars, we gladly bear witness to its
independence of spirit and the unahrink
ing fidelity with which' it has defended
Democratic principles through the put
four_years of war and terror— To those of
our friends wanting a New York paper we
recommend the World.
Congress will meet on Monday next, the
4th of December, and as no difficulty is
anticipated in the organization of the
House, the Message of the President and
the Department reports will probably be
Pent in on that day or the following one.
The usual competition for the offices of
Speaker and Clerk is not expected, and
Messrs. Colfax and McPherson will pro
bably be reelected without much opposi
tion. The important question of the session
will be the reorganization of the Union,
and we fear, from all the informatiiss we
can glean upon the subject, that none but
the most radical partizan measures are
likely to be adopted. The -Republican
Congressmen already at Washington, it is
stated, "are almost a unit in opinion on
the question of admitting the representa
tives from the Southern States. It is well
known that Mr. McPherson, the Clerk,
will not voluntarily place them on the
roll, and while -it is competent for any
member to move that they be so placed
upon it, the present temper and feeling
of the Republican members indicate that
anystich motion would be overwhelmingly
lost. Nor, so far as can be ascertained at
present, is there the slightest probability
of the immediate repeal or modification
of the test oath enacted by the last Con
gress. Men of the dominant party who
one month ago were in favor of admitting
'all duly elected members that can take
the test oath from the Southern States,
and excluding the balance, are now in
clined to favor the plan of keeping all out
until the whole matter has been referred
to a joint committee of both houses and
some general plan agreed upon. Tennes
see will probably, by common consent, be
an exception to any nil. 'that may be
adopted. If the Southern States are ex
cluded, as we now believe certain, the
next House will consist of only one hun
dred and eighty-four members. Of these
one hundred and forty-three are Repub
licans and forty-one Democrats.
Tin statement published by most of the
papers, to the effect that Mr. Vallandig
ham had recently to flee for his life from
Eaton Ohio, is pronounced by the Cin
cinnati Enquirer untrue, with one excep
tion. "The real facts," it says, "are simply
that Mr. V. went on Monday night to Ea
ton to argue a case in Court, and did argue
it on Tuesday, remaining in the town all
day, and at the hotel until some time after
dark. He went directly to the depot, and
the train being behind time, remained at
or near the depot for an hour, when, after
he was upon the care, some cowardly suf
films threw stones. The train remained
a quarter of an hour afterward at the de
pot, but nothing farther occurred except
loud talk and threats outside."

bersburg Itepaitory mentions the following

The Democratic party have always
maintained that the mere exertion of
military force indispensable as that be
came—would never sailed to restore the
Union. Certain it is, in ,the light of
events, that war has not sufficed to restore
the Union ; and the main question`of de•
bate, eight months - after its close, is,
whether restoration is yet practicable.
Could there be a more conclusive demon
stration that war alone could not actom
plish the purpose for which the late war
was undertaken ? The mere military
success of the war is not—and never was
—the point in question. not has been
complete and overwhelming; but - to pros
trate resistance was not the ultimate object
of the war, only a means. Is that object
attained? If so, why is Congress about to
organise with a third of the States ex
cluded from their representation? Wby
does our army, in time of peace, number
two hundred thousand men, scattered
through the South, keeping watch and
ward? Why is tie whole country bend
ing eagerly toward Washington, listening
for what the President is about to say on
the great topic of restoration ? Why is
every heart among us filled--with misgiv
ing ?—men on one side fearing that the
President will favor the restoration of
unsubdued and incorrigible enemies; and
on the other, that his "healing and con
ciliatory policy " (whatever that may be)
will be baffled by a recalcitrant Congress?
The Union, as yet, is not. restored :
practically the whole country admits that
the Democratic party were right in main
taining that war alone could never restore
it. We have paid this* appalling price for
goods which, when sent to our door, we
reject as if reeking with the fumes of a
. pest-house. What have we-got to show
for our enormous expt nditure? A Union
restored and cotfidence re-establhhed ?
No 1 The Union remains to be restored
by statesmanship and moderation ; which,
as the Democratic party always contend
ed, might have prevented its dissolution.
What, then, have we got, as yd, as the
fruit of our mighty efforts? Count the
graves, and see Reckon up the cripples,
end behold Go into the markets ; ask
the price, of food, fuel, raiment—and
learn I Consider our debt of three thous
and millions ; add to it twice as much
more for production arrested and property
destroyed, and tell us what this enormous
sacrifice was for. What have we got to
show for it ?'
If we are to believe the statements of
the Republicans, we have got an Ireland,
a Poland 1 We have merely extended our
dominion over a people not fit to be ad
mitted into our councils. We are guar
anteeing republican government (that is
what they call it !) by excluding States
from representation. So far from having
restored the Union, the " Union party"
(Union party I) contend that the restora
tion of the Union is the very worst thing
that could happen, as yes.
Against this doctrine the Democratic
party, trusting that they have President
Johnson with them, protest. They believe
there has been no moment since the out
break of the late bloody and fratricidal
war when the restoration of the Union
was not desirable. After the firing on
Sumter, war, was indeed inevitable; but
we have been compelled to use the max:-
mum of force because we exerted the
minimum of statesmanship. The war
was so managed as to keep the South
united and resolute so long as they had
any resources, making • the acquisition as
expensive, and the country when reacquir
ed as worthless, as ary conceivable method
could have made tbem. That, however,
is past, and cannot be helped. Bat is
there any necessity for continuing the spirit
of the old method, and making the gov
ernment of the country we have reac
quired as unrepublican and expensive,
and the restotation of the Union as late
and long-deferred, as by any kind of
management is possible ? * * *
If the Radicals are to be believed, the
war is not only a failure in respect to the
restoration of the Union, but even in res
pect to what they
. most glory in—the
abolition of slavery. ~ The Union, they
say, cannot yet be restored, because
slavery is, as yet, abolished only in name,
not in fact. They contend that, till the
freedman has the elective franchise, he is
as much a slave as ever; that reunion; is
not to be thought of until the negro ii a
Toter. But no Radical can be crazy
enough to deny that the measure is ques
tion tends, above any other that could be
thought of, to dissatisfy and exasperate
the white population of the South. What
ever else may' be said of it, it is not a
measure of conciliation. To insist upon
it is the most certain means to embitter
and alienate the white population of the'
South, and obstruct the restoration of the
Union. Among all the eccentricities of
politics, the absurdest ever witnessed is a
so called " Union party" whose watchword
is, that the Union shall not be restored.—
The Republican correspondent of the
Cincinnati Cbsonercia/,.writing from Wash
ington. trusts "the next Congress wades
something to settle the question whether
the government under which we live is a
Republic of which Andrew Johnson is
President, with Edwin Stanton, to use the
language of a distinguished military chief
tain, 'a d—d clerk,' or whether it *really
an absolute monarchy, under the reign of
Edwin I. Pope's couplet about forms of
government, may be well enough for phi

Is it 'loyal' to ask the question ? Think of

and night to prevent carriages driving past

hall door! The reader may be incredulous
bat it is the actual faot..that for months
put no public or private conveyance has
been allowed to drive past the residence
of Edwin 1., and the preventing power has
been a couple of United States cavalry
soldiers. Mist a glorious occupation for
the volunteer army—keeping the dust out
of Mr. Stanton's window curtains I Who
wouldn't rash to arms for such a glorious
purpose? Who'd hesitate? None but an
arrant copperhead. Happy Elwin in the
possession of a dust guard; but thrice hap

cording to this representation, made by a
correspondent who has no sympathy for
the Democratic party, the condition of af
fairs at Washington is humiliating, even
beyond what we had been led to believe.
Of what avail is it, though, to attack the
servant while the muter is applauded ?
The man responsible shave all others for
the'crimes against decency and law daily
perpetrated by this tyrant Stanton, ii Pres
ident Johnson, who retains him in his
place, and sustains him in his acts, in de
fiance of the wishes of nine out of ten of
the patriotic tritium of the country.
'When Mr. Lincoln foretold at the com
mencement of the war, that at its close
the same old questions would-revive in
importance, ho was sensible, and the event
proves his foresight. But the men of the
so-called Republican party are not content
with this view. They insist that the new
era shall be an era of new questions, new
doctrines, new ideas. It is proposed by
them not to discuss the old questions of po
litical economy, not to examine the future
and guide the coarse of the nation by the
lights of put experience. bat to plunge at
once and permanently into a new form of
national existence, unparalleled in our
own history, and which has been ruinous
to the interests of liberty in other nations
where the experiment has been tried. The
plan is to govern one part of the- country
by the votes of another part ; to refuse
local self-government, in local matters,
to several millions of the population of
the r oountry, and exercise the functions of
government over them by the votes of
another section. It is not worth while to
discuss a proposition like this. When pre
sented in its naked simplicity to any think
ing American, he rejects it 'at once. But
the men who propose it will deny that
their plan amounts to any such thing.--;-
They will deceive the people who are ac
customed to believe and follow them.—
Hence it seems not at all improbable
that a large portion will go crasy on this
aboard plan. and will vote in solid mere to
convert the Union and the Government
of the United States into • permanent
military despotism.
It is a curious part of the history of De
mocracy that the men who are most ardent
defenders of and disclaimers for the doc
trine of self-government are often the
most radical tyrants when they obtain
power. It would be utterly impossible to
day to conaince some men in the North
that the war has not given them a moral
and political right to govern the South in
everything. and being possessed with the
idea that the result of the war has been
the subjection of thr South to the North
(and not the subjection of rebellion to
government) they are anxious to preserve

There are four million Roman Catholic,

11 dioceses, 10 bishops, 332 priests, 230

were 1 province, 16 dioceses, 17 bishops,
482 priests, '454 churches, 358 stations and

were 3 provinces, 27 dioceses, 27 bishops,

there were 7 provinces. 48 dioceses, 3 vi

The Harrisburg Patriot publishes Qom
plate returns of the late State election,
from which we learn that the aggregate
vote, home and soldiers', was as follows:

The total soldiers' vote was 10,581, of
which 9,249 were cut for Philadelphia
alone, and the small remainder distribcited
throughout the State, no returns being
received in some counties, and very few
votes out for others. , As an instance the
entire soldiers' vote for Erie county was
but 2, and in several counties only 1 was
received. When the monstrous Given
frauds in the Philadelphia election case
are taken into consideration, it must be
agreed that the large soldiers' vote re
turned for that city has rather &suspicious
look. The total vote of the State was
454,147—a falling off of 118,558 compared
with that of 1864. when the combined vote
of McClellan and Lincoln was 572,707.

It has been going the rounds of the press
for some weeks without contradiction :
"Since I have introduced Mr. Seward's

said Mr. Davis should be hanged, and ez•
pressed himself quite warmly on the sub
ject. Mr.• Seward then• propounded the
query, 'Why should you Barg him ?' to
which Weed replied. 'I would hang him
for treason.' Mr. Seward responded in
his energetic way, 'We cannot bang him
without first convicting him, and I think
no impartial jury would do that' Weed
said, 'His guilt is already established, and
his conviction should not be difficult :' but
Mr. Seward maintained that no jury could
be formed to convict him, and added, in a
significant way. 'And even if we Should
hang him it would be no great moral les
son to the world' Gentlemen whia were
present during the conversation infa4 from

his message to the Legislature with these
good words :

is much to hope for and live for yet in
South Carolina. • • We hare no polit

unit after her sot of secession, and she is
now united as one man in returning to the
Union, and will be as true and loyal to
her plighted taith as any State north of
Mason and Dixon's line. In this respect
there is no difference between former se
cessionist: and old Union men. They all
have equilly at. heart the peace, honor,
glory and prosperity of the American re
public. And I earnestly pray that all our
legislation and deliberations may tend to
this great purpose,uuder the guidiusoe and
