THE DEMOCRATIC ADVOCATE. THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 9, 1867. BalUune (barter Election. The election of Mayor and City Coun ctla of Baltimore, which u to hare Vooßa off yeaterday, the 6th hut., has - been diapenied with, at leaat for the , preaent, by the repeal of the law paaaad this aeaaion for the purpose It u said that the lav waa gotten up rery hastily, and that it vaa found, since ita passage, to be so defective that it could hardly stand the judicial test to which it was ! Rifely to be subjected. It is bum'dia- . *ting ; but it is a thousand times better to acknowledge error at once than to ! plunge further into it. We confess that we had our misgiv ings from the first, iu regard to the propriety of this measure; but, not pro fessing to know ns much abont ita ne cessity as the people of Baltimore, and the State legislature, we held our pence. Now, since we hare got back again to the Statu quo, we must say that wo wowld prefer to see no renewal of the attempt. It is very true that our | opponents, under similar circumstances would not leave our friends in office fire minutes where the legal pretext wee not half so good; bat we mast recollect that the two parties occupy very differ ent positions. The apparent majority in every Northern State, and nearly all of au unscrupulous Congress, are in | their favor; whilst our party in the , Union is just emerging from the con-, dhion of a hopeless minority. They hare still the prestige of suppled toy-1 operate in their favor on the . public mind ; whilst our party is still j regarded with aospicion by many honest but unreflecting persons. It is ncccs-: sary for ns to wait patiently until our ! good character is firmly established In the public mind; and till the same pub , lie have discovered that the Radicals ( have all along been trading on fictitious i capital. They must decrease whilst we j j jhis copies by slow pro- \ cess out of our prudence and their im prudence We should not be presump tuous. That is characteristic of our opponents; and it has helped us greatly Wt know that it is hard to endure the wrongs and outrages to which our peopje have been subjected for years; bat, at the same time, we should not I forget that these things hare grown out °f * terrible civil war which unsettled everything, and that time has not yet been allowed for all our people to return to their right minds. This State of* things has been quietly endured for i years for the sake of the public good; { and now, whilst we have been gaiuiog 1 ground, and everything is working out a owe in due process of time, we should not endanger sucoess by appearing to be 100 eager, and thus alarming the public mind. Rather than drive off the timid : 0 Conservatives, who may begin to think cur party, when in power, full as revo lutionary as the Radicals, it may be hrttjr to allow Mayor Chapman and the I Councils to enjoy their ill-gotten offices i for the short term of their election. We have no doubt that our party iu , Maryland has the strength to carry out the project; and, if none others than ourselves were concerned, it would bo well enough. The whole couutry is watching our course; and if, by passing laws to legislate even warpers out of office, wc give them a chance to resist, and embroil our land in civil war by in. vokiog Congressional interference, wc maybe deservedly censured. Tbc State j of Mary lan^ip^rlnch has been so far re- 1 deemed, has iu part to play in the gr*nd drama. President Johnson is now the main hope of the country; yet he is compelled to act chiefly on the defensive. Iu that is bis strength; and so with the State of Maryland. It ahowkl not show the slightest opening to tho adversary, who is anxious to use any advantage. Time and patience may pttt our country right again. Let us not deprive our people of the chance by too great precipitation. * ifUMir'i Home Magazine.

Mr. Tome Cecil only in the negative. It wan sent to' the House immediately but tho minority there proved fractious, and a three fourths vote could not be obtained to adspend the rules to consider it. Con sequently it had to lay over till Monday. The miuority were very unreasonable, professing that tho law whs an outrage j yet they would not allow it to be re- ] | pealed ; and finally wanted to bargain ■ ! their votes for the measure, if the new | 1 Jury law for Carroll. Frederick and j Washington counties waa abandoned.— | On Monday their aid would not bo re ! quired The Jury Law above mentioned wc have not yet seen ; but think that it requires the selection of about 300 tax able citisens of each county by the Judge of the Circuit Court, from which list tho Grand and Petit Jurors are to be drawn. It is opposed bitterly by tho Frederick county Delegates, who would | rather let the Sheriff name tho jurors | Mr. Carmichael gave notice that the ! Judiciary Committee had a general bill { of the kind for the whole State. This ‘ wc would prefer, if a well considered j bill, as we dislike anything looking j like partial or more partisan legislation. | | Though the present bill cannot be so I j termed in regard to Carroll the Judge ’ j and Sheriff being of the sumo political | party. ! The House on Mon Jay, by a vote 63 j J yeas, nays none, passed the bill from the j | Senate repealing the act to elect a ma- i yor and city council of Baltimore ou the sixth of February. Therefore no cloo • tion will be hold at that lime. The Senate bill to prevent the sale of color cd convicts was also passed, and is-be- j . come a law. Among other bills passed • 1 was to authorise tho commissioners ! jof Dorchester county to * u bßCribo to j ; the stock ot the Drchestef find Dola- 1 ware Railroad Company, and another In : relation to the drawing of juries in * Frederick, Washington and Carroll ■ | counties. The resolutions complimen tary to the Hon. Reverdy Johnson,} i United States Senator from Maryland, j were adopted.

A motion to give the bill ! a third reading was lost—yeas 14 nays 5. j A Pair of Fetoe*. Last week the President returned to 1 Congress with his objections the Bills I to admit the Territories of Colorado and I Nebraska as States. This is the second j attempt to admit these States, the first | having been frustrated by executive j action last session. The object appears * to be to admit tho four Radical Senators now waiting at \\ ushington to represent , these new States, still further to assure | the success of Radical schemes. It ■ would place these new Slate} on an ■ equality ia the Senate with States hav-1 ing mill ons of inhabitants, whilst Col. | orado has less than 28,000 inhabitants, i Nebraska about 50,000. The ratio for j a single Representative in tho lower I Homro is now 127,000. In both those Territories the people ! have persistently opposed the ollowaucc of Negro suffrage, yet the Radicals in Congress have determined to admit them aa States with a proviso to allow such suffrage, thus overruling the will of their people. Besides this, the House of Representatives of Colorado bns pro tested against their admission as a Btate. on the ground of tho inability of the people to support the expense of u State Government. In Nebraska there wh ■ but 100 majority, out of a veto of 7,770. ' i for admission as a Stale, rendering it '< doubtful whether they now desire ud- j mission.

On Sunday hut he attended Church, and on Monday was is z more cheerful mood than for some days; Wednesday morning he was attacked with violent pain in the stom ach, of which ho was finally relieved, and laid down to sleep ; in a short time it waa discovered that he struggled slightly, and almost in a moment ex pired. The immediate cause of hi* death was, doubtless, disease of the heart. Thu* has passed from our midst. ' one of Maryland’s most gifted sous ' | Physically, ho was weak during hi* ' whole life, but the indomitable vigor of j his mind, which he preserved to tho ’ last moment*, carried him through a life oflnbor and many accidents, such a* few men wou’d have so long survived Hid he lived till the 28th of February he would have been seventy-nine years of ago. Of his public career we have no need to speuk ; ho was known in every hamlet of the *A a pri vataVßitrn he was hospitable, generous, social and the centre of a large circle of frieuds.

Bradley, of New York, the ladies throughout the country have | given up the idea of discarding the fashion of wearing hoop skirt* on account of the peculiar and graceful manner in which the Duplex Skirt* adapt them-, selves to every exigency aud emergency. , So generally acceptable have these j Skirts become that tho ladies regard {them as a special favorite, in view of i tho superior Flexibility, Lightness and ; j Durability Combined iu their Mannfac-. I taro. They also consider thorn a far 1 more Economical and Comfortable Hoop ; j Skiru !!'* a ever has or can be made for 1 ’ Assembles, for the Prom enade or House Press. Any ) -, L after | • wearing one of these Sknw never j afterwards willingly dispense with u.vL r 1 use. Long experience in the mauufac- 1 ture of Hoop Skirts, has proven to the proprietors of this invention, that Sin-1 I gle-springs Will always retain that still. ; unyielding and bungling stylo which ; , has ever characterised them, whereas ; the Double Spring Hoop or the Duplex i Elliptic, will be found Free from these objection*. Notwithstanding the abili ty of the manufacturers, Messrs. West*. Bradley aud Cary, to turn out over six ; thousand Skirts per day from their ; Large Manufactories iu New York, they i feci obliged to request all merchants j ordering the Duplex Elliptic Skirt*, to • send their orders a few days before they are wanted, if possible,as they arc most constantly oversold sonic days ahead. DldflarKlcy blinder Tin* { Sewey Family f About thirty-six years ago a fatuity j by the name of Nowcy, consisting of ( seven persons aud residing iu the ex-1 trome north-western section of F red or i ick County, were murdered and their j bouse* burned to the ground. Bu*pi- ; | clous were directed toward* n man by ! tho name of Marklcy, a relative of the 1 murdered family, who had previously 1 been heard to indulge in horrible threat* j and he was arrested aud committed to ' Jail for trial. During the progress of j the trial such a mass of circumstantial j evidence was elicited aa loft no doubt j upon the minds of the Jury of his guilt ! and he was accordingly convicted of ! murder in the first degree, and hung ; ; protesting his innocence on the ga lows I with his last breath. I The Cincinnati ( Ohio ) Commercial ■ of January 17th 1867, contains a long statement in reference to this awful : tragedy, from a Physician who says he ‘ was recently called to the bedside of a i man who confessed to him that ho had murdered the Nowcy family and that ! Markly was innocent of the crime and ! unjustly hung.

Johnston was a Rebel, and that he died in the cause of tfco Confederacy ; but the rebellion has pas* sod away, and we can sec no impropriety in allowing the people of the South to honor whom they please in a civil capa city.

Such a provision : would be a temptation to malice, on (he i part of the Senate, which few adverse majorities would fail to indulge. The acknowledgment of Mr. Stevens, that it was designed to punish the supporters of the Executive, as well as to put one aide the incompetent, was a sufficient reason for its rejection.
