1 fl Jj lliiJlulJiA 11 v AII i UvAl li* DECEMBER 20,1806. THE TRUK COURSE. We observe with much conceru that some of our Democratic cotemporaries are disposed to be restive under the present political management, and to thiuk that they would be more likely to succeed under a pure and simple Dem ocratic organization. Some of them, Whilst expressing their admiration for the President’s policy, are careful to ex plain that they are under no particular obligations to him ; and seem to like him only because he is a thorn in the side of the party which elected him. They are disposed to look with distrust upon their late allies, who once belonged to the Republican pa: ty, because (hey do not at once forget all the prejudices of a lifetime nor take pleasure in being Called Democrats. They seem to re gard it as a humiliation on their part to Condescend to vote with any party not hailing under the Democratic name; and think the time honored principles of the party are jeopardised by such subserviency. Mr. Yallandigham, it appears, is opposed to any further Con servative alliance, and is in favor of running a separate Democratic candi date for the Presidency, even jf the dominating body is not larger than a county Convention, or his candidate cannot obtain more votes than Mr. Bir ney, the Abolition candidate in times past. - We profess to have as much respect for Democratic principles, and desire for their success, as any of them ; but we think they can be best maintained by following a different course. We have never doubted the final success of Democratic principles, and that the Government will soon again be conduct ed by a party calling itself Democratic. To effect that desirable object it is cer tainly necessary, in the North, to get aid from some quarter; and that must be from those who have been sustaining the Republican party. Now, if those liberal Republicans who are disposed to sustain the President would agree to do so under the Democratic name, we would be greatly pleased; but we -know very well that they are averse to doing that, either because they are unwilling to pledge themselves to support all other Democratic principles, or from an un reasonable prejudice. If to require them, as a condition precedent, to enrol themselves as Democrats would be a stumbling block in their way wc would not require it. The whole country is in a dangerous crisis; and it illy be comes any one to prefer mere party suc cess iu such au emergency. Besides, wc well know that the old Democratic party must be the -controlling element in the new combination ; and that it is most likely that after, voting together a few times, the prejudices may wear off" and all may cheerfully fuse under the time honorored name of Democracy.— It is well known that multitudes, like Mr. Raymond of the N. York Times, have been balancing between their con victions of duty and their allegiance to the Republican party; and that, were it not for their belief that the Democratic party would get tbe teuefit of their la bor in the end, they would willingly sus tain President Johnson against their own party. Once separated from their party on such vital principles it is 'not likely* they would ever return to it, whilst they would soou find that there was really no difference of political prin ciples between them and the Democrats. It is a great mistake for any to think that the old National Democracy suf fered no damage, during the late war, which needs any care or nursing to re pair. It is true that, as a party, it was dear of all blame in bringing the North and South into collision; but finally it succumbed to fate, and parted into North and South as other parties had done—being the last link of the Union . that was broken. It is easy to under stand why the Democratic party of the North should lose its ancient prestige during the civil war. The Democrats knew that it was the fault of the fanat ics in the Republican party that aliena ted the minds of the Southern people; and therefore they sustained the war with some reluctance. Most of them ban the sagacity to see that the course ox the South, iu striking for a dissolu tion of the Union, was a blow aimed at tbo entire North; and, smothering their against the Republican party for the time being, determined to support the government. A smaller portion, believing the Union already lost by the folly of the Republican party, could not conceal their repugnance to the war. — The Republican party knowing that the South was particularly hostile to them, and hating charge of the government in the meantime, entered into the wai with more bitterness and zeal, and du ring the excitement of the occasion, many persons, forgetting their agencj iu provoking tbe war, began to regard the Republican party as the especial do feeders of the Union. The party was unscrupulous enough to appropriate tc ihemseftres all the honor for the services ‘ V the army and navy, composed as thej veto or me# of both parties, and unre . persons seemed to concede it as their right, and began to regard the whole Democratic party with suspicion. During the war the attempt to run Democratic candidates against the Re publican, or as it was called, the Union party, was considered almost a disloyal act. After tbo war was over this feel ing still greatly predominated, and hence the reluctance manifested this year to leave tbe ranks of what was known as the war party and vote along with those who were supposed to have been op posed to it, even though it was believed that the present policy of the latter was the best. We know that this does great injus tice to the old Democratic party; but we cannot shut onr eyes to the fact that great changes have been wrought by the war, and that the Democratic party must accommodate itself to the circum stances. The North has succeeded, and fealty to the successful North is too natu rally the order of the day. The Demo cratic party has a great mission toper form in reconciling the country ; but to fit itself for tbe task it must first get rid of these prejudices, be they right or wrong. Whether it be palatable or not, the first step should be to put those in the lead who were never known to falter, whilst those who opposed the war, or remained non-committal, should be satisfied to remain in the back-ground at least till the political buttle of resto ration has been ftmght and gained.— Were we to ask the more reflecting por tion of the Southern people how wc coukl best advance their interests, they would tell us that, whilst they duly ap preciated the merit of the great Demo cratic party of the North, they would greatly prefer that all the old party names and issues should be totally ig nored for the present; and that men of all former parties should be allowed, with tbe least embarrasssment, to unite in the great National Union party of reconciliation. Let us have a country first, divested pf all abominable section al parties, and then men can satisfacto rily rally under what party names they please It is as high and holy a duty now to destroy politically the Radicalism of the North at the present time as it was to destroy the Secession ism of the South. The Union is not preserved fully as long, as one section dominates over another, and the rebels of the North must yet bo conquered —at the ballot-box of course, if they coutiuuc to submit to that arbitrament. All those then who seek to revive amongst Democrats the old divisions which the war brought up, and which should perish with it, arc certainly not doing justice, cither to the Democratic party, a suffering South, or their dis tracted country. They can only thus protract Radical rule, which is the bane of that free government which all our States and people are entitled to, natu rally, as well as under our Federal Con stitution. If they wish to see our coun try restored to its former state of har mony, and ruled in the glorious future by an old time National'Dcmocracy, let them cease their untimely murmurs, aud follow the lead of the banner now held by tbe gallant Andrew Johnson. I and all will yet be well. • KECiRO SUFFRAGE. The first natural result of the success ■ of the Radicals iu the North, this year, | has been the passage of the bill to con-; fer the right of suffrage upon the nc- j groes in the District of Columbia. Be- { fore the election it was difficult to make j Radicals in Maryland believe that such was the tendency of their party; but they can all now see for themselves.— Hon. F. Thomas, of course, voted for the measure, regarding his re-election - as au instruction to do so.. Says the Cecil Democrat—The measure, as was avowed by one of its advocates, was the skirmish line thrown out to test the sense of the people on the subject, aud is but the dawn of an era of universal suffrage. Mr. Morrill said in the Senate during the discussion, that he expected to see negro suffrage established in all the Southern States before the close of the present session of Congress, aud , Thad. Stevens on Thursday by his bill for the rehabilitation of North Carolina, disclosed the modus operandi, The . States are to be robbed of their organi . JRions, aud new ones after the Radical i j idea established on the basis of loyalty i and negroism. No one is to be disfran chised on account of color or race.— t Every day’s proceedings now clearly r reveals that the one aim is to establish r negro preponderance iu the South, and t that the multitude of crimes with which that section is charged, is the requisite D justification for the intended punish t meat. Let negro suffrage be adopted, _ and all these crimes of the South will e be overlooked. She will then be tit for L a return to the family of States. Strange, strange indeed are the renovating in r fl nonces of the negro. Let him vote, t . and the traitor becomes instantly a pa 1, triot. dead States return to life, and the y stain of sin is removed. Refuse him a d vote, and language is exhausted to define i- the blackness of the sin of refusal. The s people are traitors, the States are pro o vinees, and the taint of treason is over s thorn all. y - : - ♦• • Wendell Phillips is out in this week's Anti-Slavery Standard in favor of Fred. * Douglass as United States Senator from o- New York, in place of lion- Ira Harris. Proceedings of CongreM. After transacting some business of no general interest on Thursday, Senate proceeded to the final consider*-; tien of the bill to extend the electi#* ! franchise yo the colored population <Jf the District of Columbia. *The pending* amendment requiring those who htVe n<it heretofore \k>ted in the District/to bfe -abtirto read imd write their own names was, after some debate, rejected by yeas 11, nays 31. After the adoption of j other amendments, the bill was passed —yeas 3 nays 13—amidst hisses from the wbites-aud cheers from the colored persons in the galleries. * I lu the House, a bill was introduced to establish a civil government in North Carolina. It provides for holding a convention at Raleigh, May 20, 1867, of one hundred aud twenty loyal citi zens as delegates, to frame a constitu tion, to be submitted to Congress tor approval or rejection. All male resi dent citizens, twenty-one years of age, without distinction of race or color, or who own 6100 Or more, shall vote, pro vided that no one heretofore entitled to vote, shall be disqualified from voting iu said election. It also declares tbe pres ent government void, and the functions of all Slate officers at an end. Several other bills were introduced and referred. It was resolved that the House adjourn on the 20th instant, aud stand adjourn ed until the 3d of January. The bill to supply deficiencies for the service of tbe government for the fiscal yea£ ending June next was taken up,, discussed, amended, and passed. The Senate Friday amended and pass ed the deficiency bill, and agreed to the House resolution to adjourn over from the 20th instant until the 3d of Janua ry. The bill to admit Nebraska into the Union was taken up, and au amend ment offered that colored suffrage should be granted before the admission should be allowed. Considerable debate en sued, duriug which Mr. Wade, of Ohio, declared that he was (or bolding the Southern States in military subjection by force, if they rejected the constitu tional amendment. Without coming to a vote the Senate adjourned until Mon day next. Tbe House, by a vote of 118 to 4G, passed the Senate bill to grant colored suffrage in the District of Columbia.— It was passed without debate under the operation of the .previous question. Of the Maryland delegation, Francis Tho mas voted yea, Messrs. Phelps and Har ris nay, and Messrs. McCullough aud John ii. Thomas were absent. A bill was reported appropriating $50,000 to establish a government telegraph line between New Fork and Washington.— Also, a bill to re-establish civil govern ments in the late rebellious States.— Several other bills were introduced and referred. The Senate amendments to the deficiency bill were concurrsd in. After transacting some other unimpor tant business, the House adjourned until Monday. A Washington correspondent writing on the 12th, says : The proceedings of the House to-day and yesterday give unmistakable iudi-' cations of a disruption of the Republi can organization at no distant day. The bill introduced by Williams, of Penn sylvania, regulating (he appointment and removal of civil officers, has given way to a substitute of Mr. Hale, of New York, of a less objectionable character, the fate of which itself iu Jfs present : form is doubtful. The attempt of Law- i rencc, of Ohio, to repeal the limitation I criminal trials, contained in the act of j 1790, has received its quietus, and I | learn that tire rejection or modification of many other projects thought a day or two ago of certain success, are highly probable. Another significant sign is the position taken by Mr. Stevens, of Pennsylvania, in the House yesterday in regard to the status of Mr. Da\ is.— He said he did not believe that Mr. Davis could be tried tor treason, nor that he had been guilty of treason. His of fence was that of a belligerent, not of a traitor, and he was utterly opposed to passing laws to hang a man, passed af ter his offence, and for the purpose of hanging him. It is understood that other leading Republicans will take the same ground with Mr. Stevens. Tlie State Legislature. The Legislature of MarylifSd will meet on tbe first Wednesday, 2nd. day, of January. Its session will be very important, as it will be expected to re form many of the high handed measures of the Radicals adopted for the last few years. We hope they will commence the discharge of their duties with dig nity and due deliberation. Let what is to be done, be done in a manner differ ent from the reckless course of tbe ma jority iu that body for several years, and in such away as to redound to the credit of tbe party which elected them, and to deserve the confidence of the peo ple. One of the principal things de manding their attention will bc a change of the Constitution. The popular voice appears to be for the call of a Conven tion j and if the necessary reforms can not bo effected iu any .other mode, it will be advisable to take steps to call a Convention .as soon as possible. We hope , to see this question fully discussed. The papers are generally silent ou the subject; but v c take it for granted that all the Conservative presses of the State regard it as something indispensable.— Great interest will be felt also in regard to the proper treatment of tbe Registry that perhaps can only be properly done by a change of the Constitution.

Maximilian has been induced by of fers of large loans on the part o: the clergy to postpone his abdication and retirement from Mexico; but it is most probable that nothing will induce him to assume the robes of office again.— The latest news from Europe informs us of the death of his wife, the Empress Carlotta, which occurred at Miramar, their late residence in Austria, on the , 7th. inet.

Thursday Night, Dec. 18. —A third explosion took place at the Oakfe Colliery at 10 o’clock this morn-1 ing. There is no longer any hope,, fpr those in the pit must now all be dead. Ih‘ is estimated that thrfee hundred. and fifty human beings in all have lost.their lives by this., terrible catastrophe. The mine is now on fire, and the flames have burst from the mouth of the main shaft with great violence. The work of draw ing out the bodies is suspended, and the mine is to be flooded with water.- The cause of the explosion Will probably remain a perpetual mystery. Hanley, Staffordshire, Thursday night, Dec. 13.—A fearful explosion took place at noon to-day, at Falk’s Hill, near the town, where there is a coal pit, belonging to the North Staffordshire Coal and Iron Company. Two hundred men went into the mine this morning, of whom only thirteen have been taken out alive, and they are badly injured. The rest, is it believed, are dead. Up to the present moment forty dead bod ies have been brought out of the pit. The excitement is intense.. December 16.—Several explosions took place at the Oakes col liery yesterday and to-day, which show that the fire is still raging in the pit.—- No further loss of life has occurred.— Touching scenes of woe and despair arc hourly witnessed in the vicinity, and oyer eighty funerals have taken place. One hundred and sixty women have been left widows, and three hundred and thirty children have become orphans by this terrible calamity, and many of them are mourning in the streets from morning till night. France. Paris, Dec. 14.—Under the new or ganization the French army, with the usual, reserves, will foot up about 1.250,- 000 men. It is expected that such a mighty standing army, in times of peace, will have no good effect. Amongst the thoughtful in this city the project ex cites much misgiving. ROME. Home, Dec. 14.—The anticipated trouble in this city consequent upon the withdrawal of the French troops has not occurred, aud the city is tranquife The idea that the Lope has any. i tention of leaving the Holy City is uni versally abandoned. Wc have advices from Europe by the cable to the 17th. The London Times of that date contains a telegram from Berlin which asgerts that the Pof e of I Home has been officially invited to visit the United States. The same despatch t states that Maximilian is actually a pris oner in Mexico. The King of Saxony is oil a visit at Berlin aud is the guest of the King of Prussia. It was current ly rumored at cstli, the Capital of Hungary, that the Austrian Government had refused to accede to the demands of the Hungarian Diet. From England we learn that there is no truth iu the reported arrest of Stephens. All was quiet in Ireland. Suffrage in the District. We have said nothing about the suf frage bill in- this -District because we were satisfied that its passage was a foregone conclusion. It would have passed the last session, but certain gentlemen were apprehensive of its ef fect oh the impending elections and

induced its postponement. Bat the elections resulted Tn favor-of Radicalism and the advance members of the party necessarily resumed the lead with even greater authority than before. They demand unqualified negro suffrage for this District, and, of eourse they will get it. The power of Congress is un questionable. The Constitution gives it plenary authority to legislate for our people, and the exigencies of party re quire the Radicals to advocate univer sal suffrage,, so that it is not to be ex pected that the wishes of this people would be heeded,. Ordinarily legisla tive assemblies pay great regard to the wishes of those for whom they legislate; and though the overwhelming majority of the hqnajidc residents of this Dis trict is opposed to negro suffrage, our legislative assembly, elects by a dis tant constituency, assume what their will is, and pu that assumption disre gard the preferences of the people here. As Mr. Sumner admitted yesterday, “we need their votes,” (the negroes.) The handful of Union men and the blacks would be overborne by the dis loyal whites, unless the ballot is put iu the negro’s baud. “We also,” he Claim ed, “need the example” which “the people will follow throughout the rest of the country.” Perhaps we ought to feel proud at being made au example for thirty-five millions of freemen ; but we do not. We would prefer being a little less exemplary, aud having our owu wishes more respected. But the fiat bus gone forth. We are in the vortex of a political convulsion which we are poweriess to resist,, and can only protest against being overborne while appealing to the calm good sense of the nation- against imposing legislation upon us “without the consent of the governed.”— Xat.

On Tuesday it, is , becoming soft and pleasant, and likely to put an end to the skating which the boys have been enjoying amazingly; Accident.—Mr. Win. Little, pump raaker, of Myers’ District, met with a serious accident on Wednesday after noon of last week. He was engaged in putting a pump stock in a well said to be 75 feet deep, at the old Gate House this side of Union Mills. He was iu the act of descending a ladder which was suspended by a rope,' when the upper round of thq ladder broke, and he was precipitated about 45 feet into the well, being caught by the leg between the rope and lower pump stock, where the rope was fastened to the stock, and hung with his head downward for a half hour, until ropes and other necessary means could be procured for his relief. We have not learned the extent of his injuries; but understand be is doing well. That he escaped alive is a won der. Mr. Little is a large heavy man, and over 50 years of age. Another Accident. —Whilst the hands of Sborb, Leister & Shadier, Builders, of Westminster, were engaged, on Friday afternoon last, in raising the heavy timbers of the roof of the Luth eran Church in Westminster, they met with a terrible accident by the giving way of one ood of the platform ou which they were standing. Mr. Shacffor es caped by jumping on another scaffold, and Mr. Elgiu bung to a chisel which be had just driven into a mortice, unti. he grasped some other support. Messrs. Taney, Fowler Warner, Myers aud Geiselmau, were precipitated to the ground, falling through the joists for the floor of the Church room, and the joists laid for the floor of the basement story, which are several feet above the ground. They must have fallen about 35 feet. A perfect mass of heavy timber and boards fell after and all around them, breaking through a number of the joists which are 13 by 2. inches thick. They were knocked sense-, less; but, strange to say, r jseriously iujured. Messrs. Taney : ami Fowler are said to be hurt tbe wofst.— Messrs. Ruby and Kauffman tflso made narrow escapes—one of them was as cending a ladder which had the round next below where he stood broken out by a falling piece of timber.

If they expect like rights, or course, it logically fel lows that they ought to be like the men in all respects. The Creator would not have made them different had lie not intended them to occupy a different sphere. The same rules that apply to different races or species of men also apply to the different sexes.
