THURSvAY. OCT. 18. 1866
- DRAT(' OF JOUN VAN -lIVILICN.
. The Democracy of [ New York have
scarcely recovered froM the first painful
shock with which theVearned the death
of Dean Richt:nor°, when they are called
upon to mourn the loss of another of their
faiorite leaders. Jobn Van Buren died
at the age of fifty•air on beard the stearn•
er Scotia. on the 13th of October, while
returning from a European tour, His
health had been poor for some menthe,
.but did_ not assume a precarious condition
until a few days before his demise. The
career of Mr. Van Buren is too familiar to
need repetition. lie stood at the head of
our political orator., and was hardly less
distinguished at the bar. His social qual
ities were of .a peculiarly genial nature,
and secured at an early age the title,
which has always clung to,him of being
the "prince of gentlemen," Mr. Van
131-ren was the second son of the Presideint
of that name. Although a zealous politi.
clan moat of his life. he never held but
one Orme; always regarding the private
station as the most independent and
agreeable. He wad no • leas admired
among leading Republicans than in our
own ranke, and the news of his death has
caused as much sincere sorrow as that of
any public man who has fallen within the
year. - •
THIS LATE ELECTIONS.
The e"lection returns ure still incom
plete. l'he Radical msiority in the State,
as, we predicted, is materially whittled
down as the official returns come in, and
the probability now is that It will not
much, if any, exceed fourteen thousand.
The Conservatives,' therefore; have gained
something 'near six thousand upon the
majority against them in the last Presi
dential election—that gain being nearly
equal to the majority against McClellan in
New York in 1864.- In Ohio the Conserva
tive gain has loeen still more decisive.
Lincoln's majority was 59.586, but at the
rreent k eleCtioe ' when the vote was appa•
rently as heavy as in 1864. the Radicals
: have no obtained more than 40,000 ma
jority. ndians shows a somewhat similar
result. , .iincoln'a majority in that State
in 1864 was 20,189, and now that majority
has been reduced below 15,000. We have
not yet reOeiveci sumpient returns from
lowa to - form &near estina-te of the result.
But there is no doubt, judging from our
adv w icea p that the Radicals have also lost in
sto s - RM. - vie amyl." ... —. , •
.1864 ) in "lowa, was 40,533 and the Radical
majority nosy is not likely to reach 35,000.
In all the States, theretbre, which held
.elections this month, the Conservatives
have made substantial gains upon the
r vote at the last Presidential e'eotton.
The smoke of the c ntest has not
cleared \away, but enough is visible to see
.plainly the same.remarkahlo state of tiff +ire
which has been seen in the North for five
years. The people are not fir from being
equally divided on the great questions of
the day. , There is no such preponderance
in the votes of the Radical party as tosin
dicste any great and lasting m'ajority. It
is one of the meat marvellous things in
history that for so long a time, from elec
tion to election. in 'the midst of the ut.
most excitement, through war, and peace
following war, the votes of the immense
governing . population of the Northern
States should remain so
. nearly equally
digid,ed ,on_ the grandest _ at:Lemons ever
ft - is plain enough, also, that the major.
ity of the citizens of the United States are
Opposed to the course taken by Congress,
and in favor of , the policy of the Presi
dent. Almost half the - people Of the
North and all the people of_the South are
agreed in this. On the other hanL . it is
certain that the minority of the people,
and a very decided minority at that, now
rule, and will continue to rule the coun
try until the prejudices created by the-war
will have-passed away. Boast as they may
of theif victories, the great fact is - patent
to all, that they represent but a portion of
A 'Union, and that five-ninthe, if not a
larger portion of the peop'e, unequivc
cally condemn the Radical measures. The
Unitecl States are now as, emphatically
under the rule of a minority as if the prin
ciple ;hat the majority should govern was
never known - within their limits; and all
this has been accomplished through the
very theory of State rights, which ,two
thirds of the Radicals declare to be unpa.
triotic and heretical. .
THE REASOX ROY.
The correspondence published in the
daily papers between the President and
Attorney General Stanbury, with the let
ter of Mr. Chandler, the United States
Distt)ct Attorney for Virginia, regarding
the case of Jefferson Davie, shows why
the prianiter r has not been tried or releas
ed. The President notices that "a apecin:
term of the '', Circuit Court was appointed
for the first Tuesday of October (last
Tuesday two weeks) for the trial of Jeffer 1
eon Davi. on the charge of treason ;, but
that it.appear2 now there'will be noses
sion -of that court during the present
month, and dnubta'are express - whether
the regular term, which by law should
commence.on the fourth-Monday of Nov
ember next, will be held." He then asks
—there being no good reason, PO far as be
is - informed, "why the civil courts of :the
U ited States are not competent to exer
ci o adequate jurisdiction within the dig
tri , c i t or circuit in whickoheState of Vir
gi is is situated"—the 'opinion of the At
torney General as to "what further steps,
if any, should be taken by the Executive
with a view of a speedy public and im
partial trial of the accus 2 :1."
' Mr. Stanbury replies t at he is . ' clearly
of opinion that there is nothing in the
present condition of Virginia to prevent
the full exercise of the juresdiction of the
civil ecturta;"_dhat the "actual state of
things and the ' President's proclamatton
of peace and the restoration of oivil order
guarantee to the civil authorities, federal
and State, immunity against military cou
trol or interference," and that there is
"no neceasity for further action on the
part of the Executiie in the way of pro
clamations," He then goes on to tell
that Congress, it its last session, required
the Citcuit Court t Mho United States to
be held at Richmond in May and Novero
ber of each year ! and authorized special
or adjourned terms of that court to be
ordered by - the Chief Justice of the Sup
reme Court at such time and on such
notice as he might prescribe. He had no
doubt as to the competency of the Chief
Justice and the District Judge of that
court to try Mr. Davis: he does not see
what further action can be taken on the
part of the Rxecutive to bring the prison-'
er. .to trial .;' be suggests that to avoid
mistuaderatandizg an order be issued_ to
the commandant at /Fortress Monroe to
surrender the prisoner to civil custody
whenever demanded by proper process,
though in fact it was known to the civil
authorities that be would be surrendered
at any time they should make the de
District Attorney Chandler, in his let
ter to the Attorney General, acknowledges
that ho was aware the prisoner Would be
delivered to. the United States Marshal
for the district whenever demanded by
civil rrocess, but his declined to remove
him from custody at Fortress Monroe be
cause this was a eater place than any
other to keep him, and berause it was bet-
ter for his health to remain there. That
is all the District Attorney say.. no does
not tell us why 'Jeff. -D vie has not been
brought tc trial nor when he will be tried.
It appears from the Attorney General's
communication to the President, howev
er, that some pretended difficulty had
been raised about holding the court, on
account of Congress having passed an sat
last July changing certain judicial die
tricts and making a new allottment of the
duties of the judges.. This change did not
take away Vireinia from the circuit of
Chief Jnstice Chase, and as the Attorney
General remarked, he was fully compe
tent to hold his court and to try the psis
oiler. It appears to us that this is a mis
erable quibble on the part of Mr. Chase
to shirk the responsibility of trying Mr
Davis or for the purpose of making politi
cal capital out of the victim and the ad
ministration. It is clear row that the
President is not to blame, and we think
it is equally clear that the Chief Justice
is, for thus violating the constitution,
which guarantees every man a speedy and
an impartial trial. We-hope, for the sake
of justice and the reputation of the coun
try, this disgraceful state of things will soon
be brought to an end either by . the trial
of the prisoner or by his release.

Among the other shams and falsehontla
of the Republican party, remarks, the
IVorld, is their assumption - of repre\sent

Take the constitutional amendment
now claimed as a pia:laces., There is a
clear haff-million msjority against it in
the United States if we are one peopl -
anti vote asi citizens of one notion ; but if
we•are an Union, there are more than two
States to ode in favor of it. Our system
is a very good system if men are honest
about it— if they either take it as it is, and
practice upon that the4)ry, or if they take
it as it is not, and practice upon that the , .-
ry ; but the juggle and the swindle of the
Republican party is in taking it when it
suits their purposes as it is, and when it
suits their purposes as it is not.
There is no wonder that the Republi
can party rolls up such msjorities in the
Eastern States, for it is simply a "Yankee
trick," with half a continent for its exhi
bition and fifteen • millions of citizens of
the United States for its victims, viz.: all
the citizens of The Southern States and
all the citizens of other States who are
not Republicans. It took the nineteenth
century to exhibit to th. world the Baton.
iehing fact, that in democratic America
little more than one-third of the citizens
could violate the.constitution at pleasure,
force a great war, hold power eight years.
and brag all the time about equality, boy
altv, patriotism, and the V Populi.
WE aie gratified at being able to an
nounce that there is no foundation for the
statement made in our columns last week,
on the authority of a telegram sent by the
Associated Press. regarding certain inter
rogatories purporting to have been maitre
to Attorney General Stansbury by the
Ptesident. Mr. Stansbury emphatically
pronounces the statement a canard,
and further adds that there nevrr has
been airy conversation, even, between
himself and Mr: Johnion upon any sub
ject bearing in the slightest upon
such a topic. rho President also states
that the airy itr a falsehood, and any re•
ports that may bo in circulation that' ho
questions the constitutionality of Ciu
grecs, ire base fabrications, intended to
effect the gold or stock market. Some
rascal undoubtedly got up the thing es a
hoax . , and will be compelled to pay dearly
for his fun if he is found out.
The New York Day . Book aptly remarks
that "not a little.of the disastrous result
oP the late campaign is owing directly to
the halcin-earnest policy of Mr: Johnson.:
Tle . has . done just enough to irritate the
Abolitionists and to- infuse them with
energy, and not enough to weaken or die
arm them. Out of forty-four office-hold
ers in the Treasury and War Deplrtments
from Ohio, forty-two voted on Tuesday
the Radical ticket, and only two to PUP
lain Mr. Johnson. In other wordy, be is
feeding forty-two men at the public crib
who stand ready to hang him, a la Ben
Butler, and only two to protect him.
We . do not refer to this for the sake of
Fecuring officer for DPmcicrate, hut in
order to phew that it a man is in earnest he
must give that moral effect to his fictions
which shows his .eincerity."
TILE fate cif the nnfortun t to Fenians who
fell into the hands of the Caciadians.at the
tirade of the late raid will soon be deter
mined.. The gran 1 jury at Toronto are
now engaged in finding indictments
against theria, and it is understood that
tbey will be immediately put on trial.
The charge of the chief justice to the
grand jury deserves nitice. He gave the
Feniins credit far theit-treirotion to Irish
liberty, but denounced the United States
Government "fur allowing such a revolu
tionary body to exist and attain such gi
gantic proportions under its protecting
(ogle." This is rather ungrateful, seeing
that cur government incurred much trou
'ble and expense in order to save the-Can
adians from being overrun by the Fenians,
or ro.kee vim-. • •

- "Mr. Clymer,-their candidate for Geyer
