'It cannot bo disguisoJ. that the notion,
or rather iuaclion, of Congress provokes
the righteous condemnation of many of
tho'tr unpportors. Tho wheels of pro
gress await impotna in relation to the
pe'aco ot tho oounlry, homo manufacture
demands protection, capitalists want a
Beciiro financial policy and in fact, tho
clog of legislation seriously retards
national progression in every shape.
The people ownit with longing a settled
condition of our perturbed politics. In
dications speak plainly enough that this
is no time for tho impoauhmcnt of Presi
dent Jobnsou. Fopular will is against
it tor tho reason that so much elso of
importance proscnts itself for tho con
Bideration of our representatives. Time
squandered in fixing and repelling any
charges that may bo brought against
him is timo ill-spent at this cri is. Bet
ter let tho low years of publio career
before him add to bis degenoraoy aud
infamy, then tho pcoplo will consign
him to tho oblivion which awaits him.
Congress must pot yield to tho prcssuro
of conservatism. Wo advocate radical

settlement of theso groat questons.
Murmuring is distasteful to all, but tho

-By rtferenco to our news oolumus it
will bo soon that Gen. Simon Cameron
is tho nominee for State Senato, for six
years from tho 4 th of March next, if
eluded. The Republican caucus has
aolod in direct opposition to tho will of
a mijority of the Republicans through
out the Stale. If its notion is sustained
it must be produotivo of disastrous con
sequences . to our party organization.
Thaddous Stevens got less votes than
was anticipated. Wo may yet hope for
a reversed decision of tho caucus. Sev
eral voting for Cameron have offered
othor nominations. There is no telling
the extent of tin's defection. It may bo
complhnonts to personal favorites or
it might lead to a consolidated vole
for Stevens. Edgar Cowan is tho
nominoo of tho Democratic cauous
for Senator. It isn't likely ho will bo
elected .

publican remarks that, 'ignorant white
men, however well intontioned, are vory
liable to bocomo tho dupes of doningo

as safo a guido as black instinct. Tho
Galvostoh Bulletin, ono of tho truest and
most intelligent Union papers of tho
South, insists that tho negroes will in
variably voto with the employers that
treat theni woll and says that Jeff. Davis's
old slaves all love him for his kindness,
and would voto for him for President to
day if they had a chauco, Tho truth is
there can bo no sure relianco on the
Totes of blacks, any more than of whites,
who cannot road thoir ballots and the
argument for the Massachusetts dootrino
of intelligent. Buffrago holds good against
all the ingenious sophisms brought to
test upon it. If we fail to make it na
tional at this grand opportunity we raako
a mistako not easily corrected and the
consequencos of which aro not doubtful.'
' This is a sensible view of the quostion
and ' reflects our sentiments exactly.
Tlu experiment of universal suffrage in
tho Fedoral District and tontorios, wo
havo no hesitation in saying, will bo
produotivo of good results, inasmuch as
it will test tho theory. Intelligent or
qualified suffrage will supplant universal
suttrago wherever established, for the
vory" roasons statod by the Bulletin,
Whence the soonor tho thing is exploded
tho better. If, when tho lino is drawn,
tho negroes ohooso to ballot with tbo
Dumouratio party, as they recently did
in "Massachsotts, we have no right to
oomplain. 1'bey wero extremely suc
cessful in procuring thorn for substitutes
during tho days of the draft and thoy will
provo equal to the emorgoncy when it
comes to the polls.

than 30,000 freemen residing J there
demand tho nelit of manhood. Moro
than this, tho District w subject to the
legislation of Congress, by virtu.i of
tho . Constitution. It is a calamity,
truly, that its constituents are in the
minority thoro, but it is nor.o tho less
imporativo that thoir wishes should
bo hooded. Though there bo but one
loyal man in tho District, we had
rather Congress would cater to his tasto
than pander to tho caprices of 100,000
ex-rebels and conspirators.
Outside tho District wo have always
maintained that Congress would not,
nor oould not, interfere with tho ques
tion of suffrage beyond the
requirements ot tho Constitutional
Amendment. Further than this wo
havo no catiso to believe tlipy will go.

No Stato ot its own will lias a right

and exercise of despotic power. Tho
advocates of tho former and tho latter
aro aliko enemies of the Union and our
constitutional form of government.
Why didn't ho say "nor have tho

For a week after tho fight we beard
confused and contradictory rumors of
it, of mines and desperate fighting, wo

Canea hospitals the wounded who no
longer found placo et Hetimo, but wo
could get no reliable news ns to the na
ture and result of tho conflict. Finally
we cot sufficient details to know in iu

woe, tho saddest, most piteous episode i
of this struggle.
Arkadi is a monastery which datos its
foundation 800 years ago, the present
building having been built by tho Vene
tians nearly threo eenturies .-ince, and
so strong that it was impregnable dur
ing tho previous wars of Venetian and
Turk, and Turk aud Christian, even
through tho Greek war of independence.
It is situated in tho midst of a beautiful
plain, at tho toot of tho slopes of Mt.
Ida, to tho village's in which, eomo half
dozen in number, it furnished protec
tion in danger and assistance in want.
It was distinguished among Cretan mon
asteries for the extent of its charac'ors
and boncficencr.
It was at times tho headquarters of
tho Cretan Committee, and ot tho vol
untoors under Coroneos, and in accord,
anco with tho policy of the day its des
truction was determined on, aud that ot
Coroneos aud his little army, it was
hoped, at the ssmo timo. Mustapha
Pasha sot out from Retimo, only a tew
hours march from Arkadi, the 18th of
November, und arriving at night enter.
tho monastery r unporceivod. There
wero in it only tho priests and tho lami.
lies of tho villages in number 510 souls,
of whom 313 wore wonion and children.
Somo attempted to escape, but finding
retreat cut off, returned to tho convent,
prefonng to share tho result of iho fight
to being taken prisoners. Tho forces
of the Pasha were about 12,000 men, to
tncot whoso attacks tho Christians had
loss than 200, prieats aud fathers of the
families mostly. Thoy declined to' sur.
render, and finding" that any attempt at
oacalado or surpriie was useless, the
Pasha Bont to Retimo for artillery, which
was sent him, tho next day, ho sent for
reinforcements and more guns,, so that
at the last ho had 20 guns and two mor.
tars, minus thrcoTguus burst, and 10
000 men.
Tho convent having boon out off from
communication with the mountains, no
news oould bo sent to Coroneos, who
was absent on an expedition, and there
was no hopo of relief from such over
whelming numbers if ho had. corno.
Throe days tho 200 heroes fought tho
baltlo ot despair, firing from window
nud loop-hole ao energetically and ob
stinately that tho Turks apeak of it as
like an European battle, the liko of
which never was seen in Croto. Tho
third day a broach was effected at tho
groat portal and an assault made, the
Arinaouts and Cretan Mussulmans iu
advance. Tho gate opens with a largo
oourt, around which aro arranged tho
cells and rooms of tho uionastio estab
lishment, and to those tho Christians
withdrew when tho troops had effected
an entrance, and kept up tho fire from
tho doors and windows on tho enemy,
