What is tlie object of the Democratic party” Tire New York Day-Book, a radically Del rc paper which favored the reduction of white laborers to slavery before the war and has not yet ceased to regret the destruction ot that ex cellent system, replies, “Well, as it has been led for the last six years, we should say that its only object was to play the tail to the lie publican kite, and keep as tar out of sight as possible the principles of Democracy.” The Day-Book was exceedingly disgusted with the Philadelphia conventio.., and is outraged by Mr. Johnson’s constitutional amendment which fell still-born in the Senate a week ago. The Day-Book represents the party undoubt edly. The Democratic party never accepted these compromises, and has made its fight uniformly for candidates conspicuous for their opposition to the war and for their obstinate refusal to accept the results ot the war. The leaders of the party may have conscientiously endeavored to keep the principles of Democ racy as far out of sight as possible, but when it came to balloting for candidates the back seats of their conventions came stolidly to the front and chose with unerring instinct the Pillsburys, Clymcrs and Hoffmans for their standard-bearers. The Day-Book ought not to complain of the candidates of its party, and least of a'l of such candidates as Mr. Sinclair, who is now stumping the State of New Hampshire in company with Gen. Ilarriman, the Republi can candidate for Governor. If any man de serves the Copperhead vote Mr. Sinclair is the man. From the beginning of the war to its close he faithfully represented the party which through Franklin Pierce promised that the beginning of the rebellion should be the signal for a Democratic uprising at the North. He has been nominated by a convention which declared that propositions to investi gate the President's conduct are “treasona ble,” and ought to be resisted, and Mr. Ed mund Burke who presided over the conven tion explained that the resistance should be made “with arms if necessary.” The Democ racy of New Hampshire are about as likely to fight now to keep the peace as they were in 18tJl, but whether they do or not, Mr. Sin clair who hails from Bethlehem, is an ex cellent expounder of their new gospel. Mr. Sinclair was a member of the New Hampshire Legislature when the bill to grant the privilege of voting to New Hampshire sol diers in the field came before that laxly. “The Democracy of the country,” said he, “will never submit to the result of an election de cided against them by soldiers’ votes!” Oh, no, the Democracy will never submit to the laws! We have heard that over and over cgain, ana me soutncm wing of the Demo cratic party has tried the expci iment of refus ing to submit on a a grand scale aud with un satisfactory results! We think they will sub mit, even if Congress should exercise its right to enquire into the official conduct of the President. Again when the tattered Hag of the llth New Hampshire, lost and regained in the tierce struggle before Petersburg, was brought into the Hall of Representatives in the New Hampshire Capitol, Mr. Sinclair “improved” the occasion by saying, “That flag speaks more eloquently to-day than hu man tongue can speak of the carnage o( hell which Abolitionism has brought upon the country—that flag which until it was seized by red-handed Abolitionism, floated on every sea, was respected in every land, and never trailed in the dust.” That was the way in which Mr. Sinclair “stood by the flag” during the war. The Day-Book itself might unite with him in this eloquent tribute. The discussion between Mr. Sinclair and Gen Hwriman, does not appear to have in spired the Democratic candidate with any un due confidence as to the result on the second Tuesday of March. Indeed, at Littleton last week Mr. Sinclair publicly intimated that he might decline the nomination m favor of Gen. Belelof Bath. Bath is a little town on the Ammonoosuc river. Gen. Bedel we never had the pleasure of knowing by reputation or otherwise But we sincerely hope the honor of furnishing a Democratic candidate to be beaten and badly beaten will be left to Beth lehem. Mr. Sinclair is an admirable candi date for the purpose—a capital tail to Gen. Ilarriman’s kite, to use the picturesque lan guage of the Day-Book. Besides the party won’t vote for a man who writes “Gen.” to his name. Mr. Sinclair has no right to with draw in this abrupt mauner, merely because he doesn’t get on well in his discussion with our hard-headed friend, Gen. Harriman. It is understood that the orderly management of these testive exhibitions is highly praise worthy. A correspondent of the Boston Journal describes the meetings as pcrlectly “harmonious,” explaining that whenever one side inadvertantly begins to applaud it is in stantly checked by hissing from the other! IValiuaouiul to Mr. Garriaou. It will be remembered that the proposition was made some months since, in considera tion of Mr. Garrison's long and faithful ser vice to the cause of equal rights, service wholly unremunerated since his newspaper has never afforded him a support, in consider ation also of his declining health and the pro longed ilrness of Mrs. Garrison, to oiler him a national testimonial to be provided by the subscriptions of those Americans who tcel that the country owes him a debt of grati tude and desire to pay the first instalment now. The first report of the committee hay ing this matter in charge has been made pub lic as follows: The executive committee of the national testimonial to William Lloyd Garrison have received numerous inquiries as to the condi tion and prospects of the undertertaking, and are happy to be able to assure its friends that both are satislactory. They have repeatedly susiieuded their work, at times when great public interests and claims were especially de manding attention, so that it has made less progress than it would have done under other circiunstances. Tue committee feel that the time has come when the subscriptions already made to the testimonial should be published, so that all interested therein may know what has been done and wbat remains to be done, and that those who have not yet learned of the under taking and who desire to testify their respect for a life of singular and unselfish consecration to the noblest object, may have now the op portunity of contributing such sums as best suit their own convenieuce, the largest and the smallest being alike welcome and impor tant to this Rational Testimonial. The list below is necessarily jmperfcct, as very many friends of the measure, in all parts of the country, who are in communication with the executive committee, have not yet made their report. The committee hope soon to receivo these, but wtll delay this publica tion no longer. All future contributions will be duly acknowledged, from time to time, in the Boston Daily Advertiser. Governor Bullock of Massachusetts, in send ing to the committee his contribution, after alluding to the public grants and private ben elaetions often marie, in other countries in recognition of great public and patriotic ser vices, says: ‘-But here is a man who has plac ed humanity and history under just tribute “ And why shonld it not be rendered to him— “all unsought as U is on bis part,-while his “life endures on the earth ?” The committee hope to receive, without de lay, the names and donations of the friends ol this testimonial in every part of the country. These should lie sent to our Secretary and Assistant Treasurer, Kev. Samuel Muv. Jr., P. O. Box 3005, Boston, Mass. OUllN A. ANDREW, .1. I. BOW IJ1TCH, Wm. E. Coffin, Samuki. E.

The amount of subscriptions thus far reported docs not vary much Irom ft:? 1,000. The Creek Question ns it looks in Onoco. A writer, who signs himself “Un Chretien d’OcciUont,” is contributing to an Atiicuiau journal, L’lmlepondence Hullunique, a series of vigorous articles upon “The Cabinets of Europe and the Greek Question.” Ho tells the statesmen of the West, in well-chosen phrases, that in attempting to reform Turkey they are “inoculating a corpse." He calls their attention to the enthusiastic sympathy which the people of all Christian countries 9 low fur the heroic Cretans. He asks these re -tapiats what excuses they will offer to their own countrymen, “when tho last drop of a pure an generous blood shall have beeu shed I?J* 8tuPil> Mussulman?" He warns ^ 0“^ probable result will be a nsing of all the Christian p„pn,ations trlbuta. ry to Turkey and a geUeral war throughout the Orient. He prophesies that the day is not far when the neglect of the Western powers to intimate to the Sublime Porte an order to be more humane towards insurgents will beget an uprising of Epirus and Thessaly, and adds: What will the cabiuots do then? Will they force tue yoke back upon the necks of those people and keep it there by arms? That would be a ridiculous inconsistency, now that the principle of nationalities has just been pro claimed. Would it not be more logical to pre vent the effusion of blood while they have on ly to say a word to doit? Have they reflected fully on all the extremes to which a people, constantly irritated b.v tho agents of an arbi trary power, by the exactions of u stupid Aga or of a fanatical Pacha, who, true descendants of the ferocious Omar, plume themselves ou the evil which they do to the disciples of the gospel, may he carried? “Undoubtedly,” says this western Christian, the Greek people will rise as one man to avenge so many exactious committed and so much blood spilled. Who will not approve them? For four centuries now it groans un der oppression. Is it not high time that it should breathe a little of that free air which vivifies, and which we of the West have en joyed for so long? What man, preserving a lit tle justice in his heart, will refuse to recognize the justice of the pretensions put forth at this moment by tho Greek people and by their friends? Who will blame the vengeance’ of the armed hand?” But this is not all, thinks our Christian. On the heel of insurrection will come reprisals which will shock a ceutury of civilization and progress, and the uonfiagration will spread.— He continues: Are there not millions of Sclaves and Rou manians eager to rise against the systematic tyranny of the agents of the Sublime Porte? Have the cabinets so quickly forgotten the in surrection and the wars of the Servians and the Montenegrins? Just cries for iiidep-nd ence always find echoes, and the spirit of lib erty propagates itself swiftly. But, alas! from liberty to liceuse is hut one step. It is difficult for the voice of moderation to get a hearing from nations armed, and transformed by ven geance. Bloody scenes succeed the volleys of musketry, bayonets tear, sabres mangle what the balls have tailed to kill; and these Greeks —have they not to avenge the massaeret ot Ipsara and of Chio? A few days and they will have more to avenge—their unhappy anil noble brothers in Crete, basely murdered bv the Turks. J At any moment war inay break nnt in Epi rus and Thessaly—terrible war, desperate war —mountain combats a thousand times more terrible than war on a large scale and in the field; ambuscades, surprises, in which none are spared—women, children, old men; then conflagration compl-tiug the work of the sword, and massacre after surrender. What measures will the cabiuet then take to cause a suspension of hostilities? How will they ar rest that mountain war in which expedients take the place of resources, and in which the genius of resistance always in every country takes refuge? When the Greeks shall have found m the mountains o! Epirus their re course against the domination which weighs them down, will it be then a time to make either party, tho aggressive or the defensive, hear reason? The writer goes on to argue that the Greeks are not ambitions. They desire, first, to deliv er themselves from the oppression of the Turks; secondly, the integrity of the territory occupi ed by them, from the Balkan to the Black Sea, from the Ionian Sea to the Mediterranean, aud its reuniou to the crown of King George the First Is this desire unreasonable? Of course not. gays the “Christian.” The Marriage Law agaia. Mb. Editob,—In Thursday’s Press you say ‘that the practically obsolete restriction of which Justice writes contravenes tho spirit of the Civil Rights law, it is impossible to doubt” “The practically obsolete restriction” to which you refer is evidently tho first clause of the thiol section of chapter 50 of the Revised Stat utes, w hich is as follows: “No white person shall intermarry with a ne gro, Indian or mulatto.” It is not proposed to disouss the necessity, wisdom, or justice of this law, but to deny, First—That it is “practically obsolete." Second—That it “contravenes the spirit of the Civil Rights law.” It is not obsolete, because it has been twice reenacted since its original adoption in 1820, viz., at each revision of our statutes, in 1841 and again as late at 1857. The Legislature now in session, after protractod do iberation, have just refused to repeal it. The Revised Statutes of 1857, by reiterated enactments, exhibit the de termination of the Legislature that this “re striction” shall not be found “obsolete.” By sections 13 and 14 of chapter 59, clergymen and justices of the peace are forbidden tojo n in marriage persons thus “restricted,” under penalty of $100, besides losing their right ever to solemnize any more marriages. Chap. 00, -section 1, expressly declares that “all marriages prohibited by law in sec tion 3, of chapter 59, are absolutely void ’’ and section 15 of chapter CO provides that “when a marriage is annulled on accountof the consanguinity or affinity of the parties, or be cause it is between a white person and a negro, mulatto, or indian, the issue is illegitimate;"— thus making no distinction between the efforts of incestuous and iniscegenatious marriages.— Surely statutes of so positive, emphatic and varied provisions not yet ten years old which the present Legislature distinctly refuses to repeal, cannot be termed “practically obsolete.” Neither does it seem to me to “contravene the spirit of the Civil Rights law.” The clause whose spirit it is supposed to violate, is as fol lows: “Citizens of any race and color shall havo the same right to inako and enforce contracts, to sue, to inherit, &c., &c.”— Now whose rights are abridged by the law in question? The while man’s or the black man’s? The black woman's or the white woman’s, tho Indian’s or the mu latto’s? Perhaps you will Bay everybody’s. Granted; but then is hot the “restriction” per fectly equal, and if so, has not each class of citizens the same rights, irrespective of race, color or sex? But if so, then where is the vi olation of the spirit of the Civil Rights act? If there is any inequality in the operation of the Maine “restriction” which race is the more “restricted?” I take it the white woman is thereby as effectually deprived of her right to marry a black husband, as tho black man is of his to marry a white wife. 1U0 writer happened tube in the Senate gal lery at Washington last winter when Senator Hendricks of Indiana asked Senator Trum bull of Illinois, if the State judges of his State would not he amenable to the pains and pen ulties of the First Frcedmcn’s Bureau lull then under discussion if they entorced their State law prohibiting, like ours, miscegenation. Senator Trumbull replied with emphasis in the negative, illustrating as above, and the broad grin and comic expression on the coun tenances of the colored part of the audience, as they saw the point was quite amusing. The first section of the same chapter of our statutes deprives our citizens of the right to marry their relatives up to the degree of uncle aud uieee, aunt and nephew, but it would be difficult to show that there is any inequality in its operatibn. It has been sensibly suggested, and I think not without reason, to extend the prohibition to first cousins; if this should be iloue, would there lie inequality and where? The fact is that all law operates as a restriction on somebody’s rights, unavoidably, but it nev er should do so unequally and therefore, ine quitably. If any ot our varied “restrictions” of the right to marry so operate, I fail to per ceive it. If they do nut, then they contravene neither the letter nor spirit of the Civil Rights act, whose design is simply to secure equal rights.” _. The wisdom of the act or the expediency Its repeal, as has boen remarked, it is no pro , A Radical. posed to discuss._ [In reply to this rather peculiar “Radical” wo have to observe that this law is in our opinion -practically obsolete;” because not withstanding its reaffirmation ten years ago ite prohibition* wan then and have continued to be as absolutely disr. garde,1 as it th,.v , all not existed. No complaint has been mt.de against persons living in open violation of the law, no fines have heeu imposed upon cler; y. men or justices of the peace who have cfcoem to solemnize these marriages. Senator Morr 11 exposed himself to a fine of gUHtatid the lets of a considerable total of coutingeut mar ia e fees by pronouncing one of these ill-nssori U couples man and wife, but we do not lea. u th .t he has paid the penalty. If such a h w cannot propel ly l>c called obsolete, it is because it never had any clllcaoy. In the second place wo are told that the law does not contravene tile spirit of the Civil [lights law, because it is perleotly equal in its operation, restricting blacks and whites alike. This is plausible, but a “.Radical” very well knows that tho groin d upon which the law is defended is si pseudo scientific ground which has been laughed . t until most men are very shy of it. It is the pretence that negroes are not degraded mem bers of the human family, hut a race of animals, to l>e classed somewhere between man and tho monkey. Now if we rightly understand tho Civil Kights law, it does not proceed upon any such theory. It recognizes negroes, Indians and even gypsies, as I resident Johnson took pains to point out, as men and women. Intermarriage witlt them is of course a matter of taste and private preference, with which the law has no occasion to interfere.—Ed.] VARIETIES. —A late number of the Revue dee Deux Mon dee states that Professor Trautwetter him made the astounding discovery that the “Nibelungen ied is a treatise on chemistry in the disguise of verse.
