It is proper to remark that the Democratic party obtained control of the government in 1801. Hence the “long and glorious career ol' prosperity and power” which our country en joyed. When that party fell before internal divisions and radical onslaughts, that “glorious career of prosperity and power” departed; when the Democracy shall again obtain a» ceudancy in the government we may look tor a return to the principles and practices of the fathers with the blessings which they secured. The people heeded the warnings of the Democ racy in those early days and escaped the evils then threatened. If they do not heed them now, the worst apprehensions will be more thau realized.—Argut. Chalk is not cheese, though both have the same initial letter. The moon is not a green cheese though they may resemble each other in color and form, and though an occasional antiquated lady in petticoats or pants may not know the difference. Equally certain is it that the Democracy oi the Democratic par ty of to-day is not the Democracy of iSOl, or of Thomas Jefferson,who at that time acceded to the Presidential office and is considered the father of American Democracy. The two are as unlike as day and night, light and dark ness, truth and falsehood, loyalty and treason, heaven and hell. Jefferson’s democracy em craced the rightstfman; the Democracy ol to-day ignores whole races, and labors to ele vate one raco upon the subjugation of anoth er. In arguing a proposition so plain, and pa tent to every intelligent mind, we feel an em barrassment akin to that of the philosopher who is called upon to prove that the sun shines, when the eyes of his sceptical auditors are made to blink by tbe very intensity and brightness of the sun's rays. The fact to be demonstrated, is itself plainer than any possi ble demonstration, and yet because of the persistent efferts of those whose interest it is to do so, or who ought to knovn better, in misleading the masses by a mere name, we are calculated upon to prove that black is not white, that Belial is not Immanuel. In what remains of this article we propose, as briefly as may be, to contrast tbe Democra cy of 1801,—of Thomas Jefferson,—with that of the present day; a Democracy as well represented by Jefferson Davis as by any other man on this continent. Let no Demo cratic friend start back irom this suggestion because of the antecedents of the gentleman named, for in the exercise of all caudor, and challenging successful contradiction of its cor rectness, we assert that the somewhat distin guished and certainly very talented man who is now the central figure at Fortress Monroe, in his past speeches, in his political creed, in his efforts to uphold that creed, and in the views he is last known to have entertained, is as fair and able and truthful an exponent of the Democracy of the Democratic party of the last live years, as any man now living. By this statement we are prepared to stand, for its fairness and truth cannot be gainsayed. On this single point a word before proceeding to the leading thought of this article. No one can doubt or is disposed to doubt, that Mr. C. L. Vailandigham has from the start been in lull accord with Mr. Davis, in opiuion and sympathy, and yet Mr. Vailandigham was made the standard-bearer of the Ohio Democracy, was their candidate for Governor, was a member of the Committee on the Plat form of the last national convention of the party, and actually penned the resolutions which defined the political status of that con vention. Fernando Wood and James Brooks of New York, it will not be denied, for years have taken the Southern side of polities, jus tified the South and sympathized witli Davis, and yet liotli of them represent tbo Democ racy of the Empire state in the present Con gress. The men of the Democratic party as it was when the war commenced, who oppos ed the course of Mr. Davis and his eonlreres, and supported the war, have either left the party, or, as a general thing, surrendered to the opposite wiug; at any rate, those men are no longer influential in their party, except in so far as they join hands with those who from the first opposed the war. The States that went off in rebellion under the lead of Mr. Davis, were the very ones regarded as the j Democratic States by Demociats themselves, and with five exceptions the only ones that voted against Abraham Lincoln in 18G0, lour of the exceptional States being slave States, and three of them—Mary land, Kentucky and Missouri—being held baek from joining their sisters in rebellion only by the invincible force of Federal bayonets. So much to show that, in holding up Jeffer son Davis as a fair exponent of Democracy as it is, we do no injustice to the party now ready to receive into full and loving fellow ship the very men who drenched themselves in the gore ot our Union soldiers in an in sane effort to make rebellion a success;—to receive them without baptism, without pro bation, without question even, while their re bellious spirit is unsubdued and they openly declare that, but for their poverty and lack of means they would reopen the strife and again plunge the nation into all the horrors of a civil war! One of the leading papers of the South—the Macon New Era—a Democratic paper, in full sympathy with the Democracy of to-day, say3: The only good reason for not appealing to arms in this conjuncture is the hopelessness of success. Another leading paper—the Charlottes ville (Va.) Chronicle—says: There are three coursos for the Legislature to take: The first is to fight. Tlie second is to fold arms and do nothing. The third is to call a State convention. There would be a unanimous voice in favor of the first, il we had any power to make a de cent resistance. This is the spirit dominant among men whom the Democracy of to-day would wel come into its councils, sit in fellowship with, and whose demands it—the Democracy— would yield to but for the overwhelming loyal majority which alone keeps Democrats both South and North in even nominal subjection to the Constitution and Laws of the land. We have said the Democracy of to-day is as different from that of Jefferson as night is from day. Is (his so ? Let us see. 1. Mr. Jefferson laid down the doctrine, 33a political axiom—as a “self-evident truth”— that “all men are created equal, and are en dowed by their Creator with certain inaliena ble rights, among which are life, liberty and the pursuit ofhappir.ess.” This was the cor ner-stone of his Democracy—the Democracy of 1801. What says the Democracy of to-day ? It declares, in the words of its late chief leader, A. H. Stephens, that ihe doctrine of human natural equality is a fallacy; that the corner-stone of republican institutions is the subordination of the inferior to the supe rior races. It declares in the party conven tions of the day that this is only a white mau's government; that colored men have no civil rights which white men are hound to re spect, except the right to serve. It declares that the colored man, though native of the soil, is not a citizen but a being possessed of no right to liberty; that subordination and slavery is his normal condition, that the doc trine of his equality with other men is a her esy—a radicalism which Democracy, in its practical triumph, will effectually root out ot the public mind. 2. The Democracy of Mr. Jefferson led him to say that, in view of human slavery on this continent, he trembled for bis country when be rellected that God is just. The De mocracy of to-day trembles for the safety ol the country in view of the freedom of the en slaved, and to save'it would put the manacles upon four million sets of limbs but recently made free. 3. The Democracy of Mr. Jefferson led him to say in his first Inaugural, that perfect ac quiescence in tire expressed will of the ma jority is the duty of the good citizen. The Democracy of 1800—05 led all the “reliable Democratic States” to take up arms and wage a bloody war because the majority had elect ed a President not of their choosing, and the Northern Democracy of to-day darts not condemn them for so doing, but has covertly it not openly approved their course, and doe* so now. 4. Jefferson’s Democracy was in favor of elevating the masses by the extension of ed ucation and the rights of citizenship. The Democracy of to-day, having failed to keep slavery alive, has taken its stand upon the grave of the institution, and by all the arts of which it is master is laboring to prevent the emancipated slave from rising. It scoffs at all efforts to educate him. and denies to him the common right- of manhood, which in hot haste it would confer upon every foreigner that comes to our shores, no matter how ig norant, besotted, or low in the scale of being. 5. The Democracy of Jefferson believed in the people, believed in their right todo whatev er they elected to do, while the Democracy of to-day carps at the popular verdict, distrusts the people, would restrict suffrage, and hints at another armed rebellion to subvert the pop ular will. 1 '• Hi® Democracy of Jefferson's time was opposed to ’monopolies, anil everything that trenched upon the rights [of the individual.— The Democracy of to-day lavors the aristoc racy of wealth, snd would place the control of the masses in the hands of an oligarchy of ex-slavehoiders and political demagogues. 7. The Democracy of Jefferson found its warmest supporters in the country, where the people are least under the dominion of wealth and combinations, and was treated with the most coolness iu the large cities where class and position, aristocracy and wealth, combi nations and monopolies have the fullest sway. On the contrary, the Democracy of today is almost unniversally rejected in the country, where and virtue most abound, and ol all pla ces finds it strongest foothold in the city which, of all others has the most wealth, the most aristocracy, the most ignorance, and probably the most simplicity corruption. 8. The Democracy of Mr. Jefferson was ag gressive, and ready at all times to grapple with any evil, no matter how gi gantic or by whom upheld, if it was deemed prejudicial to the people’s rights. To-day Democracy plumes itsell upon its conservatism, hugs old evils, is timid in everything favoring popular rights, and gets down obsequiously upon it knees at the bidding of lordly aristo crats, ready to foreswear the doctrines of the Declaration of Independence, and to exult in the triumph of despotism over individual and personal liberty. U. Mr. Jetferson regarded the Supreme Court of the United States, with its life ten ures and total irresponsibility to the toctreiyn power of the nation—tli$ people—with sus pision, as the dangerous eieiueut in our sys tem of Government, undemocratic, anti-re publican, monarchical and despotic. The Democracy of to-day clings to this same tri bunal as the sheet anchor of its hopes, and ap peals to it to stop the progiess which the sov- . ereigh people have decreed shall be made in the future. 10. Once more, anil finally for the present, the Democracy of Jefferson was in harmony with popular instincts, and was regarded by slaveholders with suspicion, and held by them in abhorrence because of its equalizing, level ing tendencies, while the Democracy of to-day tramples upon the best instincts of human ( nature, scouts the idea of a higher law than , that of party obligation, and is regarded by , the friends of human slavery as their only ie_ liance against danger; their only hope of sal vation against the aggressive tendencies of the popular will, and the humanizing develop ments of the age. We bespeak for the contrast here drawn a careful consideration. Let the reader, espec ially the young man, reflect carefully upon the statements made, aud then if he will make thorough Investigation into the history of the old Democracy he will find that all that is retained of it by the Democratic party ot to-day is its name. This is me only smjck m trade that it has inherited from the past The British Farlismt'st. It is never to be forgotten in speaking of the British Constitution, that its origin was military and that the great mass of its suIh jects were originally slaves. The Parliament under the Norman kings was call'd the Great Council, and consisted solely of the ecclesias tical and baroDiai dignitaries whose descend ants and successors now sit in the House of Lords. The policy of William the Conqueror was favorable to the Church, because its representatives in England had faithfully sup ported his claims to the throne. It was for this reason that he added to his strictly milita ry council of lords temporal, the lords spiritu al. The first uumistakable appearance of the House of Commons in English history Is in the year 12(55, two centuries, lacking a year, after the Conquest. Writs were then issued to all the sheriffs, commanding them to re turn two knights from eacli shire and two citizens or burgesses for every city and borough contained in each shire. The House of Commons is still composed of representa tives of the shires or counties, and represen tatives of the boroughs or enfranchised towns and districts. In 1439 the privilege of voting for knights of the shires was restricted by law to freeholders of lands and tenements of the annual value of 40 shillings, equivalent at least to £20 at the present time. In the process of time this syftem develop ed such glaring inequalities, that reform be came inevitable. The Reform bill of 1832 de clared that boroughs having a less population than 2000 should cease to return members and that those having less than 4000 should return hut one member. By. this measure 143 seats were vacated and transferred to Bir mingham, Manchester, Leeds, and other large towns which had grown into importance dur ing the last century. Between 40 and 50 new boroughs were created, but an aristocrat ic counterpoise was established by dividing the larger counties into districts, increasing the number of county members from <ri to 150. At the same time both the county and borough franchises were extended. In the counties, the old 40s. freeholders were re tained, and three new classes were added: 1. Copyholders of £ lOjicrannum; 2 Leasehold ers of the annual value ot £10 for a tenn ot (50 years, or the annual value of £50. for af term of 20 years; 3. Occupying tenants paying an annual rent of £50. In boroughs the franchise was given to all £10 resident householders, subject to certain conditions. This hill was carried with tiie consent though without the assent of the Tory lords. Twice it was presented by the Commons. Its rejec tion by tlie Lords in the first instance was followed by alaiming riots throughout the country. When it came up again the Duke of Wellington and about a hundred other peers absented themselves, and the bill became a law. Under this system, which stands unmodified to-day, it is evident that land and money are everything and manhood goes for nothing. It is notorious that estates which command a nomination to Parliament are readily sold for a price much above tlieir intrinsic value. The copyholders, leaseholders and occupiers are dependent upon the landlords. The freehold ers on the other hand vote in every comity in which they own land. The elections are thus doubly secured to the landed gentry. Add to these advantages the advantage of political traditions and politicalpractice, enjoyed sole ly by the governing class, and it coasts to lie wouderful that out of doll members of the House of Commons 320, almost half, are members or near relatives of the titled aristoc racy. In the boroughs the same inequality prevails. There ire set en towns with a popu lation of 20,000, unrepresented. Arundel, with a population of 2500 and 174 qualified voters, sends one memlier. Burnley, with 28, 000 inhabitants and probably 7C0 men quali fied to vote if the place were enfranchised, is unrepresented. The workingmen bar e a eleer majority iu eight lioroughs and in the election of 14 members; yet they liave only two mcm beis in the House who distinctly represent their wishes—Mr. Fawcett and Mr. Hughes. Mr. Bright is friendly to the laboring classes, but he does not represent them. The borough elections are controlled by money. The Con don bankers have over lorty members in the House; the insurance offices have fit directors there; there are uo less thau 2b 1 railway di rectors in Parliament—152 in the Lords and 22!) in the House of Commons. These men constitute a vast cousin-hood. Mr. Thomson Hankey, ex-Ooveraor of the Bank ol England , who sits for Peterborough, told au American the other day, that lie was more or less close ly related, by birth or marriage, with thirty one other members of Parliament! A Parliament so constituted, a Parliament ol peers, ti,nires, merchants, hankers, manu facturers, colliery-owners and railway lords, s plainly a Parliament of employer ». The whole number of registered «lectors in 18C4 was ,027 000; the whole number from whom r',1'l< lilw" is withheld Is aiiout live mil lions. These live million, are ,he employed, and are determined to have a voice in the government they are taxed to support. The bill proposed by Mr. Disraeli on the 2r,th Feb ruary, and laughed down by the House,would have enfranchised a paltry two hundred thou sand of these live millions. The new Rctonu bill which,it isexpeeted, will lie brought for ward to-day, will he a wiser and rnoie liberal concession to the exigency of tho popular de mand. Teuipcmnee—agitaa To the Editor of the Press: Nib:—The public iniml seems to be “swing ing round the circle” on the question of the sale anil uso of intoxicating beverages in so far as io whether those nuisances, the drinking sa loons and grog-shops of every character, high and low, shall continue to lie encouraged among us; and temperance men too, of whom it was thought they hail passed the Rubicon and de molished the bridge behind them and placed a fire on their rear and hence Could never know retreat, are being carried “round the cirelo’’ with the rest. The experience of the State of Maine is not so far back toward the middle ages but that it cau he rememtiered in connection with the eftorts id the two classes or parties upon this question, viz., whether a license law is more likely to promote the measure and se cure the desired result than a prohibitory law. Indeed to advocate a license law is to acknowl edge the whole temperauce movement from the Peginuiiig to be a failure. When we commenc ed more than a generation since we were every where surrounded by license laws, and* having toiled up to our present standpoint wc are ask ed to go back to the place of lieginning. The aretence that persons licensed to sell will form in efficient police to prevent illegal selling is iilaeious, ’tis a out with a worm in .it. Nodo •emeiuber better than the temperance men of Portland, the license law when Welles was fovernor. How many licenses the citj grant >11 don’t know, but the proportion for Port anil was about a dozen. We had the same itory then that the licentiates would not allow Uegal selling, but all the rum-shops were open, mudreds of them and nobody interfered with ;hem; so it would be again; so it will be with Vlassaeliusetts under a license law. Let us lave prohibition or nothing. It is to he hoped bat the temperance men are not weary of well loing. AiitceuN contended successfully with ill the Titans until he encountered Hercules, tiis strength increased with his efforts so long is lie could touch his mother earth; but Her ;ules lifted him from the ground and strangled aim in the air. If temperance men are not itr mg enough to lift king Alcohol from the 'round, let them not permit him to lift them, >ut continue to wrestle until they gain strength o do it. 80 long as it is used as a medicine in omuion cases, so long as we have town agen ies, we are giviug the enemy a foothold. Ev iry town agent knows that there is any (inan ity of sickuesB for which alcohol in some shape s the specific; and the same disease has to be ;ureil often. Better abolish the town agencies »nd stop the medicine. The patients won't die if they can’t get the rum. It will be cheaper to say a doctor’s bill and use other medicine, bough it may not be so much desired. When be agencies are abolshed. and physicians cease o prescribe liquors except in absolutely indis jeusible cases, which are comparatively few, wc shall have the monster lifted from the 'round. For that let us labor, and let us suff iced or die came; but lei uos me -mug uivoeates ofTcmperance become disconraged ind retreat to a license law. If they do that bey have lost the hattle. If we are not strong mougli to defeat the granting ol licenses, let bem he granted by the enemy, and not by ireachery or cowardice among ourselves. D. 8. GltAHPitr. Nhnrp Conflict of Words. The encounter between Mr. Bingham of Ohio and Gen. Butler of Massachusetts, in committee of tho whole, on Thursday, must have been exceedingly ipicy. A special dis patch to the Boston Ad’erti*er is quite full, and we give an extract. After the first brief en counter, the account says: The matter came np again at a later hour in the afternoon. Mr. Butler got the floor to pre sent another substitute, being, as he said, the President’s plan. This proved to he the order issued by Mr. Johnson when he was Military Governor oj Tennessee, assessing the r bela of Nashville, for the support of needy women and childreu. There was considerable laugh ter as soou as the House saw what the doe u uieut was. When the reading had been fin ished by the clerk, Mr. Butler pleasantly said he was sure no oue on the Democratic side would object to the plan proposed by that “great and good man, Andrew Johnson,” and, alluding to the fact that in drawing for eeais two weeks ago, Judge Bingham found himself sitting opposite the Republican*, added that he hoped his friend from Ohio who hail gone over to the other side in spirit as well as in body, would not oppose the proposition. The House applauded this fling, which might have been malicious though it was said with apparent good nature. Mr. Bingham was evidently net tled, and rising to finally close debate, ne re torted with much sharpness of tone that it did not become the gentleman from Massachusetts, who voted in the Charleston convention fifty times for the arch-chief of the rebellion, to make light of the distress and suffering of women and children whom the rebellion had impoverished. This wus taken as a good shot by the Democrats, and there was a hearty out burst of laughter from that side. Mr. Butler rose in bis seat, and so did half a dozen other gentlemen. "*»• luuoni w Jirri lire uuur HIIU made some taunting remark, uot clearly heard because of tbe confusion, to the effect that this opposition might come with better grace from some one else than the hero of Fort Fisner not taken. The emphasis on these words was most marked and stinging, and Mr. Bingham Sot a good round of applause, mainly from tbe emocratic side of tho Chamber. Mr. Butler wanted to reply and asked five minutes. Mr. Elbridgc hoped he would be al lowed a chance, as his side of the House was anxious to have the Fort Fisher affair fully ventilated. Mr. Chanler also wank'd leavo granted, adding,“we rather like the fun." Mr. Blaine was in the chair and said as Mr. Bingham had closed the debate. Mr. Butler cou:d not speak unless Mr. Bingham gave hia permission, which he refused to do. The House was more anxious to have the fight go on than to pass the bill and therefore changing its position in reference to the meas ure, gave the floor to Mr. Butler, on the mo tion of Mr. Eldridge, who hoped the gentleman from Massachusetts would not be bottled up in this manner, whereat of there was more laughter. General Butler “owned up” to voting for Jefferson Davis in the Charleston convention, though he said he was rather surprised to see the democratic side of tho House ap ; plaiidiug a sneer at him on that account, as he believed they were his friends then, his friends through the war, and his friends still. This hit was applauded, but not on the democratic side, and ic was noticeable that Mr. Bingham also joined in the laughter. “The difference be tween myself and the gentleman," continued, Butler, "is that I supported Jefferson Davis when he was a senator and a professed union ist, and he supports him now when he is a trai tor and a prisoner of the government he under took to destroy." This also brought a shout of laughter, in which Mr. Bingham did not, how ever, join. General Butler’s reply to the Fort Fisher remark was as graceful and dignified as anything ever said in the House. There and elsewhere, he responded, he did the best he could, he did all he was able, and only regret ted that he was not able k> do more for his country. If other men had done more he was glad of it, and he was not lieliinil any one in rejoicing at the greater services of another.— There was a murmur of applause and cries of “good,” "good,” from all parts of the republi can side of the chamber. Mr. Butler had not forgotten Mr. Bingham, for immediately, in the most mocking manner, he added that whatever his failures, he was entirely willing k> compare records with the gentleman from Ohio, whose only trophy of war the recollection of an innocent woman whom his unrelenting prosecution had driven to Him scaffold. There was an exclamation of aston ishment as General Butler thus expressed his iK'licf in Mrs. Surratt’s innocence, and every lioiiy looked at him as if in doubt whether he had been correctly understood. He kept nobody in doubt long, hut at once and in tho most coarse and offensive manner charged Mr. Bingham with hanging on wholly insufficient evidence. The House, still willing to see the fight pro longed, gave Mr. Biugham leave to speak again. He began liy claiming that he had al ways treated ills assoriates in the Homecourt eously, and never detrended to perimnalities eicept wb»»n attneked. He cared no more, lie said, for Mr. Butler’s opinion of him than for his views oil the question of •*w-ho Cock Kobin,” but when the gentleman from Massa chusetts arraigns mo for my course in tin* con spiracy trials, lie arraigns a court composed of gentlemen who arc at leri-st his peer*, and whose military records are as good as ii s. Ho recommended to Mr. Butler the advice of the English court,—first to hear and consider the
