1.AILY PRESS PORTLAND. Saturday Morning, December 29, 1866. Moulheru Eduraliou. The Freedmen’s Aid Associations have done well iu beginning the work of educating the race of grown up children, who have sud denly become their own masters. The in tluence ot their teachers is so powerfully and uniformly on the right side, that it should be continued and strengthened as long as possi ble, and we regret to notice that the New Vork Association has been compelled to con tract its operations for want of tunds. Never theless, the work is sure to continue. No one doubts that equal political as well as civil lights will at no distant day be conferred up on the entire population of the South as well as the North. The resistance of the Southern whites only increases the living energy of the movement toward the realization of the idea of republican equality. It is in vain that Maryland tiies to revive slavery under the clause of the constitutional amendment which admits involuntary servitude as a punishment tor crime. That clause permits only the re straint of Imprisonment at hard labor, and the first case which is carried up to the Su preme Court of the United States will so settle it. ft is in vain that in North Carolina, they are trying to cut down the voting list under their law excluding ftom the polls men who have been disgraced by public whipping. They are inflicting that punishment upon negroes tor all imaginable and imaginary offences, un der the protection of President Johnson's special edict suspending the eperation of Gen. Sickles’s order prohibiting sueli exhibitions; but the end which they propose will not be reached in that way. The negroes will r )W If they are to vote they must not r'omajn" children. Ex-Gov. Yance of North ',(jaro]|na made some statements in a decent k-cture, which indicate that the "!.„roe3 are already ceasing to be ebildren. ' ..Xhe invlgorati sound of tbe old banj?* gald thc melanchol Governor, “is no J*nger heard, and U]e o]d ouhle shuffle i^‘iast fusing away and will soon ix gone, lost. to present and unknown to ' 0111 n”^-^Terations.', Very likely. Freemen have jo* ^ think ot besides tbe ban jo and doume shun*,. Such bodies as the Georgia Equal Rights Association fere already thinking about matters political. Everywhere these black citizens are thinking, thinking, and seeking with a hungry eagerness after the heretofore forbidden fruit of knowledge. They will read. Seeing that the work of education is sure to continue, the late rebels are beginning to turn their attention to the subject. Their motives are apparently none of the best, but God works with strange instruments. “Con federate primers'1 and spelling books are ad vertised in Southern newspapers. “School Dooks adapted to the South” are highly com mended by Southern critics. A North Caro lina reading book has been recently published, which mentions no country except North Carolina, unless incidentally. Educational influences will undoubtedly be Invoked to create a Southern unanimity including the blacks. Confederate histories, biographies and novels will celebrate the “Lost Cause.’’ Every effort will be made to keep alive the old sectional feeling, and it will ail fail. We have lived to see Boston Democrats voting for a black councilman, and we shall live to see Southern Secessionists at least soliciting the votes of able-bodied field lia..da. Will they always get them’.’ It they do they will have to respect their rights. They will have to stop whipping and shooting and selling them. They will have to respect their political opinions too, and in spite of all the Confederate primers, readers, histories and novels, men who can read and write will gradually find out that there are other than Southern States and other than South ern notions in the American Union.— There is no occasion to fear for tbe result of education. No matter with what motives that boon is offered. It will be salutary. The common-school system, even under the su pervision of Secessionist committees, will civ ilize the South, and civilization is what that benighted region needs. I Woman Mullrnge. Advocates and opponents of womau suffrage agree in general that it is a new experiment, and are mistaken. The Tribune gives the fol lowing account of the actual trial of this ex periment, in New Jersey of all the States on this continent, as long ago as 1776 and tor thir ty years later: During the debate in the Senate,a few days ago, on Mr. Cowan’s amendment to strike out the word “male” in the Franchise bill for the Dis trict of Columbia, inquiry was made of Mr. Frelinghuysen whetner women ever voted in New Jersey. His reply admitted that they once did so “in local elections." But the fact is that, for many years, women were recogniz ed there as voters on precisely the same terms as men. Lucy Stone and H. B. Blackwell, cit izens of New Jersey, have made an investiga tion, the result of which is remarkable, and proves that previously to 1776 only men voted, but that, in 1776, the original State Constitu tion conferred the franchise on “all inhabi tants’ (men or women, white or black) possess ing the prescribed qualifications of £50 clear estate and twelve months residence, and this Constitution remained in force nntil 1844. In 1790 the Legislature, in an act regulating elec tions, used the words “he or she" in reference to voters. In 1797, another act relative to elec tions repeatedly designates the voters as “he or she.” In the same year, 1797,75 women voted in Elizabethtown for the Federal candi date. In 1800 women generally voted through out the .State in the Presidential contest be tween Jefferson and Adams. In 1802 a mem ber of the Legislature from Hunterdon County was actually elected, in a closely contested election, by tbe votes of two or three women of color. In 1807, at a local election in Essex County for the location of the county seat, men aud women generally participated,' and were jointly implicated in very extensive frauds. In the following winter of 1807-8, the Legis'a tiire, in violation of the terms of the Constitu tion, passed an act restricting suffrage to free, white, male, adult citizens, and in reference to these virtually abolished the property qualifi dation of £50, thus extending it to all white male tax-payers, while excluding all women and negroes. In 1820, the same provisions were repeated—and remained unchanged until the adoption of tbe present Constitution in 1844, It thus appears that women and negroes possessed and exercised the right unquestion ed under the Constitution of New Jersey from 1776 to 1807, 31 years, and that from 1807 until 1864,they possessed the right, but were arbitra rily deprived of its exercise 37 years more.— This is, we believe, a fact unparalled in the po litical history of the world, and was probably due to the strong Quaker influence in West Jersey, then, as usual, exerted in behalf of Equal Bights. New Jersey enjoys, we be lieve, the distinction of having been the first Stale which conferred upon all its citizens equal political privileges, without restrictions of sex or color. Simplicity in English Dress. In the families of many the nobility and gen cry of England, possessing an annual income which of itself would be an ample fortune, there is greater economy of dress and more simplicity in the furnishing of the dwelling, than there is in many of the houses of our citi ze si, who are barely able to supply the daily wants of their families by the closest attention to their business. A friend of ours, who so journed not long since, several months, in the vicinity of some of the wealthy landed aristoc racy of England, whose ample rent rolls would have warranted a high style of fashion, was surprised at the simplicity of manner* practic ed. Servants are much more numerous than with us, but the ladies made more account uf one silk dress than would be thought here of a dozen. They were generally clothed in good substan tial stuffs, and a display of fine n othing and jewelry was reserved for great occasions. The furniture of the mansions, instead of being turned out of doors every few years for new and more fashionable styles, was the same which the ancestors ot the families for several generations had possessed; substantial and in excellent preservation, but plain and without any pretensions to elegance. Even the carpets on many suits of parlors had been on the floors for fifty years, and were expected to do service for another half century. With ns how differ ent is the state of thing**! We are wasting an amount of wealth in this country on show'and fashion, which, rightly applied, would reno vate the condition of the whole population of the world, and christianize and educate all mankind. We know uot to wham to credit the above, but there is truth in it, and we thank the au thor for it \W arc, indeed, in this country,especially at. the present time, wasting an amount ot wealth on show and fashion, such as, we think, is the reproach of no other nation—an expense on dress "which, if rightly applied, would renovate the condition of the world, and chris- ' tianize and educate all mankind." Many an otherwise respectable female is such a slave to fiishion that she will spend the last of her hard earned dollars to disfigure her head by a gear that gives it uo protection, and buy capes of i costly furs, and an extravagant circle of ex pensive silk, hanging long enough to draggle in the dirt of the streets, Poverty and hard times are sure to follow such needless costs. Why do the people of the United States adopt the fashions of the French ? Are we 1 ranco Americans? Nay, we are English by blood and education; why not, then, follow English rather than French fashions? The people of England do not think that a man’s consequence is to he measured by his dress. We have seen the gentry and nobility ol that country—the Barons on their estates, and the Dukes in their Parliamentary seats; nay, we have seen royal ty itself in the every day suits of Victoria and Albert, and really were struck with the neat simplicity of their attire. We have ladies who promenade our streets here in twice the amount of silks and jewels that are shown upon t)< e royal bodies of England. On Regent stneetj London, you will see that the lady trians —and ladies walk much in Englat ^—itisfor their health—actually have feet ankles and wear shoes having thic'-j-^8'lc3 w them which protect them from causes of con sumption by which a ^tray fashion has carried so many of f )U1. gjris to premature graves. Shall we 'dever ailow considerations of health and CP.’.nfort to establish the fashions of the people.1 tye reSpect any person—man or woman contemns and disregards all fashion^ not thus originated. Traxi. . ^ The Apothecaries. \'o the Editor or the Press : It is gratifying to the friends of Temperance to see our city authorities enforcing the law against liquor sellers. Although it is not done in the most efficieut way. and fails to secure fully the desired result, the law is being vindi cated, to some extent. But there is one class of men who are violat ing it every day, openly, without any interfer ence or restraint. Of the thirty apothecaries, more or less, probably every one sells intoxi cating liquors as freely as if he was the regu lar agent lor that purpose. Every one who has had occasion to purchase other medicines, must have noticed that liquors are sold, gen erally without inquiry, and to every one who calls for them. And yet no one of them has been indicted, prosecuted, or subjected to search and seizure. Why is this? It is but fair to say that the friends of tem perance themselves are not free from fault in this matter. In order to save the trouble of going to the City Agency, or for some other reason, many Temperance men, and even members of our churches, have been in the habit of going to the apothecary’s to buy liquors tor medicinal purposes, thus encouraging them in their illegal trade. And this has been, and still is, bo common, that we can hardly blame the City Marshal for looking the other way when he passes by such places. Let us do our duty in this respect, and then the police offi cers will do their’s. The apothecary has no more right to sell liquors than the grocer, or than any other per son.' The object to be secured by the law is to restrict the sale to the regular agent, who has no interest in the profits, and is liable to be re moved for negligence or misconduct. Buch an agent has no motive whatever to sell for improper purposes*, and thus there is a double safeguard for his carefulness. But the apoth ecaries are interested to sell all they can,—as much so as the keeper of the hotel, or the restaurant. It is for this reason that the law prohibits them all alike. How long, then, will Temperance men give them an exouse for sell ing? In some respects the apothecary shop is most dangerous. Men purchase liquors there who would be ashamed to buy elsewhere. And they are kept open on the Sabbath, when other places are closed, not only for the sale of medi cines, but of other things. Having occasion not long since to obtain some medicines one Sabbath evening, 1 vent to one of the best shops in the city, and I found nearly a dozen young men inside. Though they were not temperance men, I do not know that they had been drinking. But as most of them had ci gars, which the apothecaries all sell, the place had the appearance and odor of a bar-room, quite as much as it had of a well-appointed medicine Btore. If the keeper of one such store may sell intoxicating liquors, then all may; and the whole design of the law will thus be frustrated. If the law is good, then it should be enforced against off, without discrim ination or favoritism. Any other mode of en forcing it must necessarily prove a failure. The low groggeries, where confirmed drunk ards dissolve their bodies in poisonous adulter ations, is not half so dangerous to the commu nity as the glittering saloon, or the brilliant apothecary store, where young men buy their nice wines, or sip their cool soda, flavored with some unnamable preparation of alcohol. If the law is to be enforced at all, Lt it be en forced against all alike; and thus we shall prove our Consistincy,Q 1 lupeucbuicut. ANOTHEB APPEAL BY WENDELL PHILLIPS (From the Anti-Slavery gtandaru.j The question ol impeaching the President occupies a very large share of public attention. In our judgment more than two-thirds of the loyal masses are ready for it. The House of Representatives, we are assured by the most trustworthy and competent authority, is ready to begin by a vote of three to one. The only hesitation arises from the position taken by certain Conservative Senators—men who have never outgrown their education in the timid policy of the old YYrhig party, and who still re tain relations with the President which it would be flattery to call equivocal. These men express such repugnance to the measure, such doubts of its justice and expediency, that its friends inter they will never agree to a convic tion. Unwilling to aid in what would then be thought an abortive moment, unsuccessful in its immediate result, the friends of impeach ment hesitate to proceed. We doubt whether this reluctance is good policy. Grant the pos sibility of our not secusing a conviction—there are still many considerations which show how valuable the mere impeachment itself would be. Foremost and chief of these is the proba ble effect on the South. What changed its honorable and healthy humility in May, I860, to the arrogant and swaggering confidence of May, 1866? The reliance on Johnson’s treach ery, and the expectation that his treason would be countenanced by a large Northern constitu ency. No one will deny this. The still' north ern breeze of October and November has al most blown away that castle in the air. Still, a million and more ot Democratic votes give large room for future hope; make it easy to confound and dispute the significance of the election triumph. Few men doubt that the President means to persevere in his plot. But the whole South watches to soe what the pur pose of the North really is, and how tar, even in the presence of such a Democratic mass, the Republican party dares to go. Let the news go forth that the President is defied—that Re publican leaders dare to declare open battle with him, to impeach and suspend him, and n*.«3 iuc uduunuuuK uu me wan, tnat an nouncement will make Southern knees, like those of tonner tyrants, shake and smite against each other; the proud hut baseless fa bric of Southern ambition will dissolve, and “leave not a wreck behind.” Wade Hampton even may come to his knees, and coward brutes like Mayor Munroe will surely get to theirs.— It will be a sign of Northern purpose and of our leaders’ understanding ol, and confidence in it, more potent than any other evidence can be. No movement would go so far toward con vincing the South how hopeless is her plan to save her inhuman civilization from the verdict which Northern victory has recorded against It. There is another consideration of great im portance. The usurpation and corruption of the National Executive have been increasing every year for the last quarter of a century — l’yler, Folk, Fillmore, Fierce, and Buchanan have each succeeded in outdoing his predeces sor—the increasing servility and baseness of each making his predecessor appear compara tively decent. The impunity with which each w as suffered to complete his villany embolden ed his successor. Such men are below the reach ol honorable motive, respect for charac ter and love of good repute. Their impunity corrupts and emboldens all in the nation that lesemble them. The motives to such usurpa iion are many and strong; success and impuni ty itensify and strengthen them still further — We need an example; we need to give to tie popular rebuke the strongest expression and orm possible. If the sinner cannot actually je punished let him tremble at the close ap proach and most imminent danger of getting lis deserts. If the Senate will not give us the credit of convicting the usurper, let the House, it least, give free couase to the utterance of -hat protest from the moral sense of the people ivhich impeachment alone would constitute._ Such utterance is due to national character and seif-iespect. It might tend strongly to ar rest our deterioration. \Varren Hast! ngs, col ossal sinner as he was against Christian civili sation and absolute justice, was acquitted when the Common* impeached him; hut Lord John Russell testifies that lii* trial saved India from any repetition ot such wholesale murders aud gigantic corruption- He says: Though the Impeachment ended ui au acquittal, its results were memorable and beneficial. Never has the greet object of punlshmeut. the prevention of crime, been attained more completelv than by thi* trial. „ So it might, and probably would be in qur case. Surely we stand in as great need of sj|!n salvation. The trial would throw open to the light the dark chambers and crooked paths of Executive malversation and defiant illegal ity of policy. The blood of New Orleans, and ot those three soldiers whose murderers, by Johnson’s trick, walk unpunished might stiil cry unheard for vengeance—but its guilt would ^ traced home to the very doors of the White House, on evidence no mqcould gainsay. rev^- ii a popular verdict would be recordei. matter how a whole family provided wi .dees, or any other man agement, might gag me Senate—that no future rresident would ve nture to walk in the same path. We have s0 much faith in the virtue and intf ;ice Qf tbe people as to be sure of v. ■ o ohuson cannot be punished, still, like *u’i, predecessor, we can send him forth with s ucb a mark on his brow that no man will TSWfifw liis example. We turn to another point, yome doubt whether Johnson be legally liable to impeachment, since, as they suppose, he ha* violated no specific statute, committed no of fence specially and exactly defined by law. We think such a supposition utterly erroneous, ©n the contrary, if asked by what law we in tended to try him, we might answer as the Roundhead did in Charles the First’s case, “By all the laws he has left us.” But even grauting the supposition to be correct, it does not touch or affect the question. Impeach ment is not like, nor is it limited like a com mon indictment. No man can be indicted ex cept for a crime that common or statute law has distinctly described; but an officer may be impeached for any grave misuse of his powers or any mischievous non-uso of them—for any conduct which harms the public or perils its welfare. It is a process intended to sweep after the exact and definite machinery of the law, and save the State from evils which no law. however comprehensive, can cover. Who ever undertook to find or state the exact statute that Warren Hastings had violated? When did Burke, Fox or Sheridan enter Westmin ster Hall “with the statute book doubled down in dogs’ears," to specify the exact clause which that ruthless trampler on helpless millions had violated? The nature of the proceedings ex cused them from all such labor. So of our usurper with bloody and unclean hands. His offences have been, to be sure, in many in stances violations oi express laws. But we waive that; we may point to his whole course, beginning with North Carolina in 1865 and ending at Baltimore, when, thirsting for loyal blood, the wholesome timidity ef his own tools and the courage of a young Judge sent him, baulked and cowed, back to his lair—we may point to all this and demand that the whole con stitutional arsenal shall be exhausted to punish such a past and prevent a similar future. The American people arraign their Chief Magis trate in the tace of the world—the first time in their history—for his attempt, by hypocrisy and treason, to corrupt their moral sense and baulk their victory over an inhuman and bloody system—and doing it in defence of a hapless and friendless race, would be a sub lime spectacle, compared with which the trials of Charles I. and Louis XIV. would sink into merely selfish and ambitious measures. Such a step would be in keeping with the noble march of the Revolution—better evidence of the generous and high principle which has un derlain the war, than the thunders ot Gettys burer, or even the Emancipation Proclamation itself.
