The Now York Day Book has a correspon dent rejoicing in the “proud title” of“VYar wick,” which sounds very much like the titter we are accustomed to read in the Southern newspapers, in the exhilarating accounts of 1 th it peculiar Southern amusement, the tourn ament. Indeed we suspect that as Northern firemen are accustomed to subscribe to their newspaper communications the name of the machine which it is their chief aim in life to keep bright and bcauliful, as ball players sign “Base Ball” and rowiug men delight in the ghastly signature of “Sculls,” so “Warwick” rushes into print over the doughty title by which he has heretofore been known in the lists, when with pasteboard yisor down he has spurred his Rozlnante gallantly at the gutta pereba ring and deftly striven to carry oil that product of Northern skill, designed for teeth ing babes, upon the point of a tin lance with a hickory shaft. “Warwick” writes from some mysterious iocality in Alabama, unknown to the gentle men in the General Post Office, and designat ed as “The Hills.” This is a locally intelligi ble designation no doubt, like “the Corners,” or “the Cross Roads,” in many Northern towns. People at the North are net accus tomed to date their letters fr om such places, but at the South the fashion is quite different. Southern gentlemen have a notion that it is a fine thing, like those dear lords in England and other foreign countries, to addross the world from their own estates. ^ When the Duke de Nasby realizes his pleasing vision— if he ever does—his delightful epistles will no longer hail from the “Confederate X Roads,” but from “the Snob’s Retreat.” “Warwick” is learned, after the Southern fashion—that is to say, he uses the Latin tongue more freely than accurately in his newspaper articles, and abounds in classical allusion- In the letter which now lies before us, he remarks, for example, that “Good Sen ator Wilson forgo ts mail inter males zici mus." This awful lapse really ought not to be charged upon Senator Wilson. The Sena tor could not have forgotten these words, for we don’t believe he ever saw or heard ot them. Good English speech Is enough fo> Mr. Wilson, and Mr. Wilson's English we firmly believe would prove, a good deal too much for “Warwick" in a logical or rhetorical encounter. In a “tournament,” the advan tage would probably remain with “Warwick.” In this curious letter, “Warwick” celebrates the woes of the South. That is another Southern fashion very prevalent just now. Alter alluding to Horace quite originally as “the Epicurean poet” and successfully quoting a Latin verse from the said poet, “ Warwick” dilates upon the consequences of what he calls “the Carthagenian ciuelty of the Mon grel Congress,” as follows: If the reign of reason has ceased, and the future of the South is to be that of the sublime lyssuflering Prometheus, of jEschylus, chained to Mount Caucassus, his liver preyed upon by the vultures—threatened with“tliree-fbld ven feance,” and invited by the conservative chorus, y “the prudent councils’*of abject fear, to de grade herself at the foot of despotic power; why, then, the South has only to arm herself with the resolution of the immortal sufferer, and uefy power! Its studied insults, its per sistent tortures, its maddening outrages, may signalize the “humble pleasure,” of malignant Mongrelism, and the diabolism of bloody demagogues; but all these cannot “extermi nate" her, nor* quench theetherial breath” of honor in herl Why “Warwick” chooses to emphasize the harmless name of yEschylus in that startling way is a mystery as profound as his peculiar method of spelling “Caucassus” with two s’s. Under a white man's government “Warwick” probably thinks a “Caucassian” has a right to speil the title of his race and allcoguate words with as many letters as he chooses. It is in a certain sense his own name, and he will do with it as he likes. To object would be to be guilty of “the diabolism of bloody peda gogues.” Alas, alas: wnat can oe aone witn saca tei- i lows as this, who cannot even spell! How ! can we expect logic, where we do not iind even ■ orthography? It'“Warwick” were a solitary ' case, there might be room for hope, but he is : only a specimen of the class to which he be longs. The plantation hie was a life passed mostly among inferiors. It bred conceit as naturally as putrefaction breeds maggots. Our Northern youth get the conceit takeu out of them when they put ou airs of this kind. The Southern aristocracy has always been a sham aristocracy, compounded in equal parts of Uou Quixote and Squire Western, erratic as the Knight of La Mauclia, coarse as the country squire, 'ihii atrocious nouseuse about a “sublimely sutfering South” is its nat ural outgrowth. Prometheus indeed! There was a Prometheus in the South, chained to the mount of suil'cring, but his skin was dark and the vulture wliich tormented him was the “Southern gentleman.” We require the South to give up her medieval habits and antique institutions; we ask her to confer equal rights upou all Americans within her borders; and we arc met by taik about “Car- | tliageniaa cruelty'’ and “maddenDing out- | rages.” Tills country belongs to the people \ of the United States. Every man of us bas i a vested right in Alabama as good as “War- ' wick’s.” The people of the Uuited States i have discovered that the aristocratic institu tions which formerly existed in Alabama are dangerous to the peace of the country, and will nut consent to then* continuance. If that be “diabolism” we have made a great mistake; we had supposed it to be common prudence. Oovcmor Feutou on the Coitstiintional Amendment. The following is the portion of Governor Fenton’s address to the New York Legisla ture,-which especially concerns the proposed amendment to the national constitution. It will be seen that the Executive of New York, like the Executive of Maine, while recom mending the ratification of the amendment, does not hesitate to say that if the measure falls, through the lault ot the Southern States, more efficacious means will be adopted. He tells the Legislature,— It will be your high privilege in the name of the people 01 this Slate to ratify the proposed constitutional amendmeut, which I have the honor to transmit upon this opening day of your session. I cannot too earnestly recom mend your prompt action in order that the judgment of New York, on a proposition so moderate and so just, may be submitted at the earliest day to ilie unreconstructed States, aud that on our part, there may be no delay in anchoring these traiernal guarantees in the federal constitution. I need not discuss the features of this amendmeut; they have under gone the ordeal of public consideration since the adjournment of Congress in July last; j and they are understood, appreciated and ap proved. Never before in me history of the government, upon any great question adecting our national interests, has there been such unanimity in the expression of the popuiar wilL. The proposed amendment seems to con tain just the conditions of safety and Justice indispensable to a permanent settlement. It spans the chasm which the rebellion opened lietween the loyal and the insurgent istates; and if it shalll be accepted in good faith, as frankly as it is teudered, the way is already open lor reconciliation aud lasting peace. There Is no other plan beio.e the people, and the verdict of the ballot-box implies that no other plan is desired. The claims that the revolting States could, by their own act, and without the consent ot Congress, restore then former relations to the government against which they rebelled, anu that an executive officer of tue government could exercise the prerogative of Congress, and legalize illegal governments organized by armed and unpai doned rebels—have both been rejected aud condemned. On full and deliberate consider ation, the people have pronounced in tavor of the authority of Congress over the whole sub ject of reconstruction and have declared thoir purpose that the rebel Slates shah not he re stored to their former participation in the gov ernment until suitable constitutional guai un tess are provided lor security against present disloyalty and tuttue rebellion. I am not insensible of the obstatlos to a cheertul acceptance of the amendment by those who retain much of the bitterness whicu they cherished toward us through lour year3 of wasting waij and who are still imbued with prejudice against equality of rigut for those whom they recently hold in bondage, -J- *__ , and who fought to uphold the government while they fought to destroy it. It takes time to work out changes and organic reforms in the structure of pthtical institutions. pro_ gress in human affairs is ol slow- growth ex cept in periods of violent convulsions in so ciety which form epochs hr history. I need not say that the work ol reconstruction is re tarded by the illusory hope field out t> the in surgent States, of restoration on terms Ies3 favorable than this amendment to the future security and repose of the government; bu* this error cannot last. Moderate, yet tirm in our purpose, consistent and uniform in what we propose, we tender an amendment to which we trust these States will accede. In the same spirit of frankness and good faith in widen we offer it for their acceptance. If, to our disap pointment aud regret they shall manifest a spirit of continued hostility, and by rejecting a proposition so liberal and ju->t, evince a set tled purpose to continue to oppress those whom we are bound in honor to protect, and at the same time to represent them in the councils ol the federal government, it will then bo the duty oi Congress, by more strin gent measures, to give ertect to the popular will. There can be no reaction; the natien has to power of turning back. The powers of Congress are ample under the Constitu tion ; aud those powers will be exercised so ar as the public safety may demand, with the linnucss worthy ot a great people. The Currency uuit the Turin. We copy the following passages hom an elaborate letter addressed to Commissione1' Wells, whose report on the revenue laws has just been laid before Congress, by Sir. George Walker. The proposition which Sir. Walker attempts to prove is, that the embarrassments which alVect our manufacturing interests are occasioned by a depreciated currency, and that the remedy is to be found in a speedy re turn to specie payments: Gold is actually demonetised in fact and in idea, and has become merchandise. It is no longer money in luct, because it is used in so small a traction of our exenanges as to con stitute no appreciable part ot tne circulating medium. B_\ the people it is used ouly to |>ay customs and duties, and by the government, interest on the federal bonus, i he great vol ume ot home industry is operator! wholly by paper, and both producer and consumer alike measure pricos iu the paper standard of the country Nor is gold any longer money even : in idea, because alter it rose to 2i)u the people : parted company with it, and prices have risen and lallen with scarcely any reference to the market price of gold. When I speak of prices, I refer to commodities, and not to the shares or securities dealt iu ou the stock exchange. The importer ot foreign merchandise wbo has to ouy in gold is the only parly who looks at the price 01 gold, when he hxes the price at wbfeu be can alibi'd to sell his goods. If we had been paying heavy balances abroad, such a divorce of business from the precious metals could not have taken place, but fortunately or unfortunately, the ex ports or tne country m cotton and nve twent} bonds have enabled us generally to , to meet our vast importations, and have caus ed exchange to rule in our l&vor. Gold being thus driven out ol' use as mon ey, bas become one ot the cheapest commod ities in the market. Ceasing to be currency, it is subject to tbe ordinary laws oi supply and demand, but the demand ibr it betug light, the price ol it has ialien to a point much below the average ol' other prices. It au attempt were to be made to-morrow to re- 1 sume specie payments, gold would quickly rise to zut) or upwards, ler it would theu resume its dominant use as money, and the true re iatiou of value between it and the conven tional money of the U nited Sta tes would be at ODce apparent. But untd such resumption is attempted, the volume of direct exchanges be tween gold and paper is too inconsiderable to atford any correct test of tbe value of the paper. nas ceased to be the measwe of prices in this country and is cheaper than most cummoui- 1 ties, by reason of the small demand ibr it, it , is next to be considered how pi ices iiave been • all'ected by the paper currency of the coun- : try. Before the war, the whole currency con- I sisted oi bank notes; lor gold, though held by 1 tbe banks as a redemption fund, and used in settling balances at tbe clearing-house, and in dealings with the government, tunned no part of the domestic circulation. The volume oi built notes never exceeded 24b millions, and if the West had enjoyed a redemption system like that of New England, it need never have gone so high. Nor did the amount of cur rency increase rapidly with the development of business. Tbe rapidity of communiear tion between distant sections, and the use of the express and tiie telegraph, and tbe econo mizing influence of bank accounts aud ot the clearing-house, have goue tar to neutralize the demands of a growing business ior a cir culating medium. So remarkably bas this economy been realized in Great Britain (a couutry of small extent, it is true, compared with ours,) that it was recently claimed in the House of Commons by Mr. Hubbard, a direct or ol tbe Bank of England, that it requires no more currency to do the business of that country now, than it did twenty years ago, wheu the business was only half as great. Yet in the lace ot this economic law, and ot our own experience, we have gone Irorn a re deemable currency of two huudred minions, to an irredeemable currency of more than seven hundred. Make whatever allowance you can justify for shortened credits, increase of cash transactions, stimulated industry and the settlement ot new territories, aud com pare as closely as you can the relative produc tion of the two periods, aud you caunot re sist the couclusion that there is now more than double the circulating medium which would be required to do the same business on a specie basis, and this being conceded, it irre sistibly follows that prices must iiAve, from that cause alone, risen to tlouble their natural standard. The bearing ot these tacts on the industry of the county is this. The .Pittsburg iron-mas ter is paying double prices lor all ih.it enters into tbe cost of his production, aud to do a living business, he must get double prices in I return. But at this point the foreigner steps 1 in aud undersells him, because the cost oi pio | duction in Europe, with an unchanged cur- i rency, has not advanced, ami Uiter paying a heavy duty, he cau still ud'ord to sell his mer- i chuudise here at a cm rency pi ice considerably ! below the cost ot the American article; be cause with the currency received, he can buy I gold, or bills of exchange, at a price much be- [ low the average prices ol those articles which , enter into the cost of American production.— With this gold he repeats tbe process ot cheap 1 production (tor it is the currency ot his coun try) and the unequal competition is renewed. I if X hare established the position that gold | Thus it is tjjat the low price of gold oper ates as a bounty to the foreign manulacturcr, and while it occupies its present abnormal 1 position m this country, cheapened in price i because deprived of that function which gives it its greatest value elsewhere, this bouuly must continue. The remedy Usually suggest . cd is to advauce the tarill, hut this, though peilcctly justifiable where the diilereme ol , cost grows out of the intrinsic advantage j which tbe foreigner derives from cheaper cap ital and labor, is a most unstable and danger- j ous remedy where tbc evil is tbc eousequeuce i of a vitiated cuirency. When thus Used the tarill tends to aggravate and prolong a state ot i things, from which to escape is tbe only safe ty. if the people of this country could be , made to see that the present expamied cur- j rency is not a blessing but a curse; that it is one ot the most unequal and burdensome ol 1 taxes; that it gives undue value to capital as compared with labor, thus pressing most . heavily on the woiking classes, lending to make the |rich richer and the poor poorer; that it stimulates speculation lwhich is gambling under a less offensive name) by turning the most ambitious men from the oc cupations of production to those of exchange, from mechanics aud farmers iuto brokers and middlemen; that it drives men from the coun try into the cities, in the hope of sudden wealth, and because it is thought more re spectable to buy aud to sell than to labor with the hands; that it subverts all true notions ol value and produces such constant fluctuations os to make honest industry insecure ot its re wards ; if the people can be made to see all these evils, aud will open their eyes to the enervating, dcraoralir ing consequences, they will patiently and cheertufly submit to the temporary hardships which are involved in re ducing this rediuidunt currency to its normal proportion; they will by all their influence strengthen the hands ot Congress aud ot the ■Secretary of the Treasury, that the day may be hastened when the country shall again i conduct its domestic and foreign dealings on j the basis of the omy curruncy which cau reu j der trade secure—that of the precious metals. The 1'olore.l .Members sf tbe .Massachu setts *.r*isluturr. The Boston correspondent of the New York Tirfles notices Messrs. Walker and Mitchell, the two colored members of the i Massachusetts Legislature, as follows: Edward Garrison V, alker, by far the most ! able niau of the two, was nominated by the Republicans of Ward Three, in Charlestown, but on election day the men ot that party in that city tailed to support him. At k o’ciock iu the alteruuon of tlecliun day, it bccamy. ap parent that he would not be elooted. The I pol s clos’d at 4 o’clock, and he needed about tittv votes to place him among the chosen at f 4 o’clock, and tho.-o filly votes were cast by members ol the Democratic party, which in sured his election, lie is n lawyer of consid erable ability, has an exteuslvo practice in Charlestown and in Boston, and is extreme ly popular as a man and an orator iu the first named city. He evinced a wui in interest in i the Fenian cause last June, which doubtless gained him the democratic votes. It is stated | that the latter party did as much toward bis election as the Republicans, though be has ' .1 " always been identified with and an cxponem ol the principled oi' the latter. Mr. Wa.ket is a son o‘ that Walker who more than thirty years ago caused such an overwhelming ex citement in Charleston, South Carolina, by a pamphlet distinguished in the annals ot Anti Slavery warfare, and his son lias been enabled n create a somewhat similar excitement in laxlestown, Mass., by being chosen a iegis w“* thought that his nomination -00'1 iaitii by the Kepuhit iu I ha I,^nthar *!U cl*ances of obtainiug a seat ‘"d when his exc‘t®tnent on the evening r t* appertaining to on, national welfmcTs w^i in tunned on all subject, discussed ai this day and as an orator ),e wdl have lew equals in th« Mouse. Mis arguments are clear , 2oni^ and conclusive, and at one time during the esm paigu ot l.sdO t saw him in a caucus in J- liaileston dclivei a speech that completely humiliated one ol the most prominent poli ticians ot that city. The latter accused a del egation (ot which Waiker was a member) ot not doing their duty iu a Couveuuou to which they were sent, and Walker, in a short speech, cowered him ,o completely that the politician was foieed to beg his pardon be fore the assemblage. A brilliant luture is pre dicted lor Mr. Waiker b> his (Mends, who hope to see him in the Gubernatorial chair or ouugiess, aim uis cuauees lor either ara good If he serves with ciedit his piesent term hi i lie House, as he has become extremely popular, more especially since his election. Charles L. Much ell, the colored repre sentative from Ward Six, Boston, Is a printer h> hade, and a worthy, intelligent man, but is not by any means so well ouaiilied I or bis position as .Ur. Walker. The last-named represents the people irrespebtivo of color, but the lormcr was tent to appear for the colored population ot his ward. and was not sent ou ins individual merits but rather to represent a minority ot the party in that section ot the city, the colored men in that ward are nu merous, and have long desired a representa tive, but have heretoiore always been divided ou Use hincss of three or lour ol their number ibr the position, and consequently have not sacceded in ejecting anybody. This time their wandering und divided opinions, were, it seems, concentrated—they have been "recon structed ’—lienee tiie result. Until liis nomination, Mitchell was not generally known in the city, iie was for many years an employe in the office of the .Libera tor, and dining the war* enlisted as a private in the p’iiiy-liiin Massachusetts (colored) lleg imeut. He was rapi ‘ly promoted lor bravery and good conduct, and was one of the very lew uien who served in Massachusetts colored regiments, who rec.ived a commission of Lieutenant. His Iricut's claim that he will make a good representative, hut time wilt show whether or uot they are l ight These two men could uot ba\ e taken their seats at a period more favorable lor them thaa the present. The House is made up almost exclusively oi their Irieuds, by whom they were warmly we c uned. lhey are expected not only to so demean themselves as to gain the* respect and esteem of their associates, and to warrant the conhdeuee reposed in them by their constituents, but there will also devolve upon them the high and responsible duty of representing a race that isjust entering on a career ot tquul citizenship,and they win uoubt le»s perform their duties to the satisfaction of all. The Bernoulli* and (icacral Grant. A propoa of the rumor that Gen. Grant la to be nominated at a private gathering of Democratic sachems somewhere out West, here is something instinctive irom the New Tort Day Book—a newspaper which claims in big letters “the largest circulation oi any Democratic paper published in the United bta.es.” The Day Book copies from an ex change the remark that “by a singular coin cidence Major-General Grant, a Scotch officer in the British army, in 177a, defeated Gen. Lee in command of the American forces in New Jersey, and wa3 afterwards promoted to the rank of Lieutenant-General, and subse quently died very old at his seat in Ballendal lock, near Blgin, Scotland, in lsOO,” and pro ceeds as follows: Nor does the coincidence end here. Both General Grant of the B.-niah army and Gen eral Grant of the Abolition army, lought lor precisely the same principles—the overthrow of sell-government in America. The only difference in the two cases is, that one was succeslul and the other unsuccessful. Both received the applause of the Tory party ter their services. Gen. Grant, the younger, simply curried out the traduioual policy of England on this continent. When she found she could not whip us in open warfare with her own troops,she began thirty years ago to stimulate a party here which should light the battle iu which she had come off second best. That party com menced with Ga.rtson, and her own agent, Thompson, thirty years ago, and now the party in power propose to present a testimonial to old Garrison became he was the pioneer of this British, monarchical policy. Could any case be cleat er than that both Gen. Grauts were engaged in piecisely the same work / Gen. Grant did something more than conquer Gen. Lee at Appomattox Court House, lie subjugated Slates, he overthrew our old Government of consent, he establish ed the Tory yrmciple in America, that coat the best biuo-1 of a uoble generation of men to overthrow. There is, indeed, a coincidence between Gen. Grant ot the British army, and Gen. Grant of the Abolition army. May the Lord deliver our country horn such coinci dences 1 XI wg desire to restore the Union of our fa thers, we can see no propriety in nominating men tor President wno have been the agents ol the Abolitionists in its overthrow. Are the e men to be nominated upon the ground of the honor they have)acbievcd in subjugat ing States/ Do they propose to accept the swindling “amendment” so called, the child of force and fraud, which deprives States of their ancient rights and privileges in the Union'/— U they are pledged to a Jiniuistcr the govern ment upon any ditlerent b»sis than that of the ovetlhrow of State Bights, wart is that basis / We have had several elections without any tangible issue with the ''Radicals, so called. It that kind of warfare is to continue, we had belter all go over to them at once, and not be fooling away our time in sham battles. Victor fcluaaniiei'M ft perch. The folio whig is the complete text of the speed, delivered by King Via or Emmanuel at the opening ot the Italian Parliament: SiGHota SENAioBi,SiGNoni Ukhutati Our country is huncelonb liee from all for eign dominalion. It is with profound joy that I declare this to the representatives of twenty-five millions of Italians. Tire nation had faith in rue And I in it. Tlris great event by crowning our common efforts gives a fresh impulse to the works of civilization, and ren ders more stable the political equilibrium of Europe. By her prompitude in military organ Ballon, and by the rapid union other people, Italy has acquired tire credit which was nec essary to attain independence; by herself and with the aid of efficacious aihances Italy found encouragement and support in this laborious work in the sympathy ol civilized governments and peoples, and has been turther sustained and strengthened by the courageous persever ance ol the \ euetiau provinces in the common enterprise of national emancipation. The treaty ol peace with the empire of Austria, wlr ich will be laid letore you, will bo followed by negotiations, and will facilitate exchange of prisoners between the two States. The French government, faithful to the ob ligations contracted by the September conven tion, lias withdrawn its troops from Home.— On its side, the Italian government, obseivant ot its engagements, has respected and will re spect the Pontifical territory. Our good un derstanding with tne French Emperor, to whom we are hound by triendship and grati tude, the moderation ol the Homans, the wis dom of the Pontificate, and the religious sen timent and tight leeling of the Italian people, will aid us to distinguish and conciliate the Catholic interests and natioual aspirations which are interwoven and contending with each other at Home. Attached to the religion ot our ancestors, which Is also that olthe great ma. orily of Italians, I nevertheless re spect the principle of liberty which breathes through our institutions, and which broadly and sincerely aprlied, will remove the causes of the old dillcreLces between Chinch and State.
