k When the relative strength of parties is
considered,. in many of -the Northern
States, it will be easy to-'.-tee that-the negro
vote, if thrown as a unit, as would almost
certainly be 'the case, would control the
politics of the whole country. In moat of
the large States there would be a 'powertnl
enough negro vote to more than make up
the difference between the two parties, as
now' constituted on a white basis, and the
organization which would bid , the highest
for their suffrage, would be assured of cer
tain success for a time. In that event the
negro would , virtually dictate the
policy- - of' the nation s 'and , the con
flict of races, so long continued, would re
sult in the mastery of the African. This
argument is on the presumption that pub
lic opinion Will always remain' as at pres
ent, but nothing is surer than if the negro
once secures an equality of political rights,
his natural arrogance soon create a
revulsion against him. that will' react
against any party that dependa upon his
co-operation for. success.
We seta it stated that Speaker Colfax has
recently written a letter to some Fenians'
expressing great sympathy with their
movement, and. giving his views es to the
value of "sympathy" to people who are
struggling for liberty. He thinks our sym
nathy.was of great- service to the Poles,
tee Hiingariane, the Cretans anctthe
erals of Mexico ; and he infers, therefore,
that il l will atm aid the Fenian cause. This;
is all very tine • talk, but' not much else.
Expressions of symnatby are always grati
fying to people who are struggling or suf
fering, but in contests for freedom they are
worth but little, except as they may in
spire hope of more substantial aid, and all
such hopes thus inspired generally lead to
disappointment. We expressed a great
deal of sympathy for the Hungarians, but
it never brought them an hour nearer in
dependence. The Poles have had the
sympathy of the world, but they are mote
*roughly the victims of tyranny now
than ever.before. Our sympathy for the
Fenians has probably encouraced a good
many patriotic Irishmen to rash into Can
ado, and to attempt a rising in Ireland ;
but all they have got by it has bean long
terms in the Penitentiary and a still more
rigid enforcement of English rale.' 'These
resolutions of sympathy are generally
nothing more than the tricks of dente
iogues, by which they hope to wheedle
the credulous into giving them their votes
and keeping them in office. We are sorry
to say they succeed but too often.
TAE Committee of the Massachusetts
Legislature which has, been occupied for
msny weeks in taking evidence upon the
workings of the State Priihibitory Liquor

mor.'drunkenness,especially in the cities,

old license system. The experience of

I A BODDBR - TURN OP TUE WEIBEL.
The Buffalo Courier calls attention to
i the fact--equally significant to. Democrats
and-Radicals—that since the passage of
the Military Reconstruction bills 'scarcely
an-election, however petty,hasoccuried,
that did not indicate the rapid, decadence
of Radicalism. The . New Hatisishire
State election took place ad soon . , after the
arbitrary legislation- of Ccingress that a
proper sense of the total revolution of Re
publican principles involved_tilerein did
not penetrate the minds of the people.
RadiCalism was rebuked even there,. our
party gaining - fifteen hundred or 'mole
votes over the etection of the year before;
but Still the State was not redeemed, nor
was the solid Radical - representation in
Congress broken. But in Connecticut and:
Kentucky the elections were held later
anti the significance of the result Cannot
be mistaken. In the last, - or Thirty.
ninth Congress, these two States elected
representatives ns follows :
Kentucky - 5
In the Fortieth or present Cmgreas, the
following is the result':
Connecticut 3 - 1
We need not look fir for the explana
tion of this - wonderful change of senti
ment. When the elections were held in
these States for the Thirty-ninth Congress,
the constitutional amendments were ad
vertised as the ultimatum of the Radical
party, by its orators and by its press.
Democrats as persistently pointed out
that the disuttionists 'would not be con
tent with so mild,a measure, and demand
el that Congress, if the amendments were
.a finality , should declare them so, in order
: that the Southern States might see the
-groupd before there. But, while no such
pledges were given,the people were hood
winked into believing that no severer
conditions would he required, and by this
chicanery the Radicals secured the Thfr
ty.eieth and Fortieth Congressea. The
mask was 'then immediately thrown
aside ; the miserable pretence set up that
the South had rejected the amendments—
which had never been offered it as a con
dition of admission ; and the infamous
system of military rule inaugurated. It-is
fortunate that the elections of Connecti
cut and Kentucky have occurred at this
time. Had these States chosen their rep
resentatives last fall they might have also
been duped by Radical treachery. Now
they have voted.with their eyes open, and
the result is a complete reversal of their
formerverdict, a thorough condemnation .
of the' course of Congress in creating mill
:tary satrapies in this -once free country.
'The Radicals have played their cards well
in not exposing their bands until the
game was secure. The Fortieth Congress
is theirs, for which the consolation is that
they are responsible for.its
Could the voice of the whole Northern

Ora DEBT AND TAXES .—The New York
Evening Post, Radical, has an interesting,
article under this head, showing the taxes
which individuals and families must pay
this year. As oar share of the na
tional indebtedness is the same in Penn
sylvarda, in proportion to population, and
our State and municipal burthens also
in equal proportions, the-same figures giv
en by the Post will apply here with equal
correctness, The post says of New York,
."tbe population of the State in 1865 was
3,831 4 727. Estimating The present' popu
-lation„in rotted numbers, at four millions,
every man, woman and child in the State

vote,ever polled in this State was" 731,010.
Estitnatin`g the present number of electors
at 750,000, each . elector must pay this year

howevcr cogent, is worse than wasted.
Any man who questions their policy must
be hunted down and 'silenced. No matter
how it its done—the-end will justify any
means that may be used for attaining it.
Abuse, slander, denunciation,--impeach
meat of motives, are among the usual re-
sorts of this class - of crusaders, and they
wean employed with ruthless recklesinews
and ferocity. Gov. Andrew is only Gape
riencing the fate of all who have dared to
withstand the march of eltraism.: The
first article in the creed of extremists is
that they are abselutelyind unmistakably
rigid; the second i 9 that every man who
differs' from them- must necessarily be
hopelessly and culpably wrong. The only
consolation in the matter is that it is only
on rare occasions that this class of men
come into the ascendent and get control
of publics affairs. As a general. thing the
mass of men are governed by reason,.prio
tical wisdom and common sense. -
A WORD, TO. BozmnpLnzßs.—Speaking of
the probable effect of negro suffrage upon
the financial interests of the country,
Henry Clay Dean recently said :
"I could wish bondholders no worse'
luck than to fall into the hands of ne
'gratis, who want cheap foal and raiment,
who will' vote dovin tariffs and taxes.
Then-what becomes of the public debt ?"
There is a pregnant moaning in those
few words which holders of bonds would
do well to ponder carefully. With the in
corporation of the vast mass of ignorant
negroes among the vptericif this country,
there will be serious danger of repudiation,
whdnevir ate time'of financial depression
the burthen of taxation shall press heavi
ly upon the poorer classes: , It cannot be•
expected that the negroes be re
straiised by any fastidious sense 'of honor
from voting to shift the burthens of the gov
ernment from their shouldsirs. The cry
of cheap clothing . and,cheap goods in gen

eagerly. Let the bondholders seriously

in time of peace, its whide expense Was

A few days ago the Philadelphia Ledger,
in an able article oti the "Exteniiioti of the
United States," said : "The dreams of
universal monarchy have been a' success
in the United States, so far as they are'
founded on military force, instead of the
"natural love and good will of voluntary
agreement," We think the success has
been remarkable. Ten' States of the
