DISPATCHES from Europe announce the
sudden but complete snccess of the British
Abyssinnun expedition..- The Army of Thea
dorus has been cut up and routetl, his cap
tives have been released, and his own life
has paid the penalty for his barbarity. The
vengeance of England has only satisfied the
demands of Justice. We congratulate Queen
Victoria on her somewhat severe, but cer
tainly merited, rebuke of her-heathen lover.
TUE Washington correspondent Of the
Chicago Times says it is well known there
that- General Sherman is indignant at the
proNpect of an unjust and partisan conviction
of the President. He says if Johnson is con
vh-ted, he (Sherman) Will appeal to the peo
ple of the 'United States against the finding
of tiic'Senate ; that he will him4elf, if neces
sary, be the standard-hearer of the party op
po.ed to stich conviction, no limiter who
may he the standaro-bearer on the other
side, nod that he will agree to stump the
country on the question ! This threat, deliv
ered with the General's accustomed and
well-known vehemence of manner, has great
ly alarmed the Radicals, and there was u
good dettl'•,r fluttering in their camp-iti, con
The attention of the Impeachment Court
has been wholly occupied since t,mr last issue
by the ari.ruments of the counsel and man
agers, each of whom has been allowed to
"speak his piece." -Messrs. Butler and Curtis
having been granted the privilege of opening
for their respective sides, aro of course re
lieved from the opportunity of again display
ing their oratorical powers. The arguments
for the Radicals have thus far been made by
Messrs. Boutwell, Stevens and Williams. each
of whom spent from four hours iu Stevens'
case to a day and a-half in each of the others
in reading written rehasheS of the Radical
theories with which the country is familiar .
Judge 'Nelson, of Tennessee, and Mr. Groes
beck; of Ohio, answered them in splendid
oral arguments, the effort of the latter being
especially commended for its chaste and con
vincing eloquence. On .Wednesday, Mr.
Evarts, of New York, spoke on the Presi
dent's side, and to-day (Thursday) Mr. Stan
bery is to commence a speech u hi& is ex
pected to last two days. The closing argu
ment will he made by Mr. Bingham, on the
part of the managers, and' as he will be re
quired to sum up the whole ease,hly plea will
probably continue a couple days more. The
belief prevails that the Senate will not come
to a vote before Tuesday or Wednesday of
next week. There tieing nothing to retain
Judge Curtis any longer, he has returned to
his home in Massachusetts. The counsel for
the defence desire that the Chief Justice
shall close with a charge, the same as in or
dinary court ,proceedings, but it is not known
whether he will Comply with their wishes or
not. -
Some excitement has been created by a
proposition to the effect that the question of
the President's guilt or innocence shall he
decided by ballot instead of an oral vote, as
is-customary in the Senate proceedings. The
impeachers profess. to see in this a disposition
to shirk the responsibility by sonic of the
Senators, and openly allege that its adoption
would secure the President's acquittal. We
have no doubt that there are many Senators
who would like to wash their bands of the
whole dirty affair, and if they can &slac
some mode by which the censure of their
Radical associate* and constituents can be
cacaped, will welcome the opportunity to vote
against the President's conviction. The sn i t,.
ject has - not been disposed of,. and may lead
to a spicy scene atthe termination of the
Tut: newly elected Burgess of York, Pa.,
is David Small, the individual who, in 1883,
walked seven miles In surrender the village_
into the hands of the rebels. The people of
that town must-he easily managed, or they
are-of a rebellious tendency. Suppose Small
-has another opportunity, will hgsurrender to
the enemy ? How is it, Mr. Democrat? "Why
is this thus ?'%-•-ttispateh. •
Mr. Small slimily did what any other man
Of good judgment would have done under
the circumstances. When the rebels invaded
Pennsylvania, a detachment was sent to take
possession a the• borough of York, which
did not have a Soldier to rely upon for its de
fence. Anxious to spare the place from pil
lage, Mr. Small and otherprominenteitizens,
iltelw4lie2 rc zit mbtjr RoTticalft, went Sam
distance out to meet the enemy, and, after
informing- the, Commanding officer of their
situation, they peaceably aurrendered the
place to him, upon receiving all assurance
that no violence would be done to person or
property. The people of York had good
rea.ion to congratulate themselves upon hay
ing so judicious allargess, for, as a result of
his mission, they were treated-with a marked
degree of lenity during the whole - period of
the rebel .stay. They have exhibited their
appreciation of his wisdom' by re-electing
him every succeeding year; each time by an
increased majority, although previous to the
war the borough wasone of the most reliable
Radical places In Pennsylvania. This is the
whole etery aud nothiugmore, and we hope
the Dispatch will have sufficient courtesy to
retract Its libel upon one of the most estima•
He men and patriotic citlz inthe Country. I
We hope there is truth in the Cable dis
patch which atateithereitz widespread and
ever-increasing feeling inEngland favorable
to the amelioration of the condition of the
Irish, as the most effective means of suppres
sing Fenianism. Even that old champion of
all sorts of injustice and oppressius. the Lon
don Times, has an editorial favoring the kite.
The eyes of England as to the rvl sentiments
of Ireland begin to be open. Statesmen like
Gladstone, and papers like the London Timm
begin to , admit that, if n popular vote were
to be taken In Ireland O,U her connection
with England, an immense majority of the•
vote would be cast In.. fityor of hnntediate,-
total and ; Anal seParation t' and that If mus
kets were piseed . in . the Lands of 'every Irisk
man, Most of musieniwould be turned
against England. The .exeenttortit at Man
cheater, and the suppressioirerthe funeral
'processions, which by all English papers are
described as most orderly in their appearance,
have greatly strengthened this. spirit of dis
affection. If anything Can yet change this
spirit, it will be a thorough reform or Ep lish.
policy toward Ireland.
TUE Drawrcit AN TIO N.D Tat oincAso
The Democrats Melee gtratly that, the
Chicagoans elected a Demeeratie judge and
clerk the other day, by about nine hundred
majority. The city went Republican last
year by five thousand, and-so-the conserva
tives boast of six thousand gain. When the
fact is known that the vote is four thousand
less than in 1804, showing that at least ten
thousand persons did not vote, it will dimin
ish the agony of their joy a little. Such vic
tories arelleasant, to he sure, but not Woo
rely upon.--Dia-pcteh.
We are sorry to be compelled to post oar
neighbor up so frequently. but as It 'trill per
sist in distorting the facts, either ignorantly
r intentionally, we cannot be blamed forgo
denvorin,g, as a faithful conserver of the pub
lic morals, to maintain it In the path of Un
biased rectitude. In the first place, the
Democrats did. not elect their "judge
. end
clerk by about 900 majority." • The. former
'succeeded by 910 and the latter by only 120,
neither majority being very large, but suffi
cient to brag over, under the circumstances,
and too heavy it would appear for- the DU=
patch to receive by telegraph, though' itean
secure reports of Radical tunjoriticsTromlit
tle places way off in Maine and .Tennessee
that no person cares it straw about: in the'
next place, the comparison with the rote of
1864 is unfair, and calculated to give an erro
neous impression. At that time there were
thousands of soldiers In the city, all of whom
were allowed to vote, and their ballots
swelled the total to an extent far exceeding
the number which is its just proportion. The
fair mode of comparing the result is with
other elections when there were no National .
or State officers to choose, which was the
case last year. In that contest, fought upon
a straight party issue, the vote stood: '
Rice, (Republic:lml - - 11,909
Sherman, (Democrat,} • 7,991
Republican majority la-ct year, - 3,918
Total vote, - . - - 10,900
This year the rote k ng follows on indge:
McAllister, (E/Cinocrat,) - - : 12,284
Smith, (Republican,) - - - 11,374
Democratic majority,
Total vote, -
It will be observed that the vote of 1868
is nearly four, thousand more than in 1807, al
though a Mayor was chosen upon the latter
oeca,ion, and the campaign was conducted
with - Irue Western energS, brief space
of a year, the Radicals , huVe lost WO votes,
while the Democrats have gained over 3,000 ,
a change sufficient to overthrow the nearly
4,000 majority against ns, and turn it to 000
in our favor. If this is not sOntothing to
rejoice over, we do not know , what would he.
A still better idea of the vast Democratle
gain in that locality tnliv be bad by going
back to 1866, when the Radical catolitlate, fur
Congress had 6,580 majority in the -county,
the entire Democratic vote, with the city in
cluded, being only 5,697. It-may 'be good
partisan policy for. the Dispatch to belittle
facts like these, but the .circumstance . does
not speak well for the justice of its disposi
tion. Better to concede the truth at once,
and save its readers sore disappointinent in
November. •
A SHOUT time orevious to the close at the
Inter legislative session, Senator Lowry made
another speech, reiterating his views upon
the financial position, taking ,the most 'de
cided ground in• favor of the overthrow of
the 'National bank system, favarlog the tax
ing of the bonds, advocating their con
version into greenbacks, and planting him
selfif possible even more fairly and squarely
upon the Democratic platform in this res
pect than in his previons effort. He tells his
Radical associates that their attempts to gag
him will not anceced, and solemnly warns
them that they are "lolling themselves to
sleep, in fancied security, 'upon a voltsmo,
that may ut any time break forth anti en
pipit them in the bunting lava of an out
raged people and a bankrupt goverument."
The present financial plan ho characterizes
as a "robbery," which "surpasses in villainy
any scheme of public theft that the world
ever witnessed, sod its end," he pre lists;
"will be speedy disaster and ruin." "We
must either reform,", he exclaims, "or repu
diate. ~I ant in favor of reform." In spite of
the opposition of all his party papers in this
county, there is no questioninit the fact that
Lou ry• has the sympathies of n vast majority
