Bolie-able »*«'••« Journal.. One i? led to iuier, from the character ol their statements, that the copperhead editors have adopted the old maxim—all is fair in a time of war—and applied it to political dis cussions. The most reckless falsehoods are circulated for facts, and reliance is placed up. on the ignorant scum thrown U[>on our shores from foreign lands to believe such lies and, influenced by them, to fill up the depleted rank's of the once proud but now disloyal Democratic party. Ignorance ail'ords the most prolilabie recruiting ground for this ef fete concern. Nowouderthe ll’or/d recently advised to take advantage ol the newly en franchised freedmen while they are unable to read, and suggested that this ignorance would protect them against radical ideas anil make them easy of control under Democratic ma nipulations. We have before us a Democratic paper of the 4th inst.;—perhaps we ought to style it the Democratic paper of the State, since it is well known that early in the war it stood al most alone, but now, unchanged itself, it is backed by the whole paity force of the State, in this paper we find conspicuously inserted, on its editorial page, and duly leaded—thus giving it the highest endorsement—an article beaded “Massachusetts a few years ago."— The article then goes on to say, “A few years ago slavery ions tolerated in Massachusetts, and the newspapers were filled with disgust ing advertisements relating to negroes.” It then gives some half-dozen samples of these disgusting advertisements. One offers for sale “good Barbadoes rum, and a young negro that has had the small pox.” Another pro poses to sell a negro woman and her child, to gether or separately. Another oilers a negro woman 17 years old, sold tor no fault except that slje is wifh child. Such advertisements, copperhead papers tell their ignorant readers, filled the Massa chusetts papers only “a few years ago!" When it is remembered that slavery was abol ished bylaw in Massachusetts, prior to the for mation of theConstitution of the United States in 1787,and that no slaves have been bought or sold in that State since that time, the truth fulness and fairness of the statements above quoted wifi be appreciated. Politicians who can see no beauty in freedom, and look with complacency upon negroes only when they are in chains;—a class of politicians who have ever been ready to do the dirty work of slavery, and have now lost their occupation because there is no longer any slavery to re quire dirty wotk, are willing to resort to such baseness in order to create a prejudice against a free State, and bring it down to the level of their own grovelling minds. But why should the papers tauut Massachusetts for having tolerated slavery, and for Idling her papers with such advertisements? Did not all the Democratic Stales hug slavery till forced to give it up? And were not their papers embellished with precisely such advertisements as those above referred to? And did any Democratic paper ever reproach them with such things? Why tlieu so horrified because a State now free— free lor seventy-five years—once tolerated the same human blessings? If slavery is a bless ing to the colored race and freedom a curse, as Copperheads usually agree, why reproach a sister State for what she did that was right and say nothing of her wrongs? Why spit upon her because in the days of her purity and regard for the good of man, she forged fetters for bis limbs, and remain silent in re lation to her barbarous tendencies shown in abolishing the blessing of slavery and estab lishing the curse of liberty ? Tbc *o. th-UerMf.ii I'oMfedtralioa. The fourth article of the Austro-Prussian treaty of peace, published ou the 2d Septem ber last, reads as follows: His Mgjesty the Emperor of Austria recog nizes the dissolution ot the late German iiund end gives his consent to a new formation of Germany, in which the Imperial State of Aus tria shall take no part. Moreover His Majesty promises to recognize the closer Federal rela tions which His Majesty the King of Prussia is about to establish north of the line of the Maine, and also ngrees that the German States to the south ot this line shall form a union, the na tional connection ot which with the Northern Confederacy is reserved for a more explicit agreement between both parties, aud which is to maintain an international independent exis tence. On the 10th September a treaty was con cluded between Prussia and fifteen or sixteeu of the smaller States and tree cities north of the Maine. A national Parliament, elected in accordance with the terms of this treaty, met at Berlin on the 24th ot February. On the 27th of March this Parliament adopted the constitution proposed by Von Bismarck. All that was foreshadowed by the famous fourth article of the treaty of Prague, has al ready taken place, and more—for Bavaria and Baden, the principal States of the pro posed South-German Confederation, have within a fortnight bound themselves by treaty to give the command of their aimies in time of war to Prussia. A year ago Prussia had a population of eighteen or nineteen millions. To-day she is the head of a Confederation numbering thirty-two or three millions—more populous than Great Britain and Ireland, and fairly rivaling France. The new constitution tranfers all questions of trade and commerce, of customs duties, weights, measures, coinage and internal com munication to the representatives of the peo ple and of the States. The Parliament is to be composed of deputies chosen by the people, every • man over twenty-five years of age being entitled to a vote. The Federal Coun cil will have for the present 43 members ai> portioned among and nominated by the States. All legislation on the subjects named is entrusted to these two bodies. Their sessions aie to be public and the votes are to be decided by a majority, except that a two-thiids vote will be required to effect any change in the constitution. So much is con ceded to the German people. It is much, and they will help themselves to more. On the other hand the King of Prussia is' constituted Federal Commander in-chief and Lord High admiral, with exclusive control of the expens es ot the army aud navy. Prussia is the sole representative o^tbe Confederation among other nations, She alone has power to de clare war, to make treaties, to receive or ac credit ambassadors. She also has the con venient power to convene or adjourn the Par liament. Every man is required to serve for a time in the regular army or in the navy, and all persons in the national service, civil or military, are to take the oath of fealty to the King of Prussia. In the Prussian sky there is now hut a single cloud. The Duchy of Luxemburg encompass ed by Belgium, Prussia and France, but odd ly cuougli belonging to Holland, is ir^lispen to tbe full satisfaction of the Royal Prussian mind. Luxemburg belongs geogra phically to Belgium, but tlie Luxemburghers are not dratvti towards the Belgians. The Dutch are not prepared to tight tor a bit of territory of no more consequence to them than Russian America is to us. The Prussians, after the war last summer, garrisoned the city of Lux emburg and still bold it by possession. Mean while tbe cable informed ns a few day3 ago that the walls of the city had suddenly brok en out wiLh placards calling for annexation to France. The Prussian commander demand ed an explanation of the astonished autorities which at last accounts they were uuable to give. The cloud is no bigger than a man’s hand, but tbe man is Louis Napoleon, and the hand is reaching toward a possession which Prussia will not readily suffer him to take. If the French Emperor should sueeed in obtaining any colorable title by purchase trom Holland, it is not improbable that we shall see another European war this sum mer. _ _ —An old gentleman from the country, stop ping at a first-rate hotel in New York, wrote home that his room was six stories high, and his bill was three stories higher than his room.

YY'aterviile is a highly favuted place, having all the privileges of the best New Eng land society, meetings, schools, lectures, anil more amusements and shows than arc profit able. Mr. Hathaway’s establishment consists of a very targe brick building with outbuild ings and well ornamented grounds, combin ing the appearance of an industrial establish ment and a neat private residence, as it really is, for the proprietor's family resides in rooms titled up for that purpose in a part of the building, making it easy tor ail the employees to enjoy maternal care and watchfulness with out apparent effort. The rooms are con structed to secure utility and comfort, and al ways have the appearance of perfect neatness —not omitting a small vestry or .Sabbath school room, well furnished. Every attach ment and fixture is arranged with such taste and neatness as to interest and excite an am bition to excel in the business in which (lie occupants are employed; all reflecting the character of the man at the head, and indi cating the quality and beauty of the goods that go out to all parts of our land. All deal ers in first class ready made clothing know of "Hathaway's Shirts," and his establishment is an “Institution" of which his neighbors may well be proud. Tiiaxi's Friknli. malignant aud Flagiitan*. It seems as though a portion of tho newspa per press thinks it no wrong to utter the most malignant anil false accusations against Gen. Butler, because he happen* at the present time to bo making sonic unpleasant dis closures. Even deeds for which be lias previ ously been praised, and which should commend him to the American people, arc now seized upon as the occasion of dealing heavy blows at his head. Here is a case in point, not from an open Copperhead journal, hut from a paper that pretends to fly the Republican flag: Gcu. Butler is a man who stabs in the dark. In the war he hung oue man, who was unarm ed, defenceless and wholly in his power, with out a trial or a semblance of one. New Orleans had been wrested from rcliel rule by the fleet of Farragnt, end Gen. Butler had commenced tho occupancy with laud forces. The rcliel flags had been stricken aud the stars and stripes Imd lieen erected. On the U. 8. Branch Mint building this victorious em blem of a nation’s power had been raised. It was a sacred emblem in the eyes of all loyal, Union-loving men; it symliolizcd freedom, and promised protection to all who would obey Un law. That flag had been replaced there at great cost. Valuable lives had fallen that it might wave in the breezes of that latitude.— It was such a flag, erected under such circum stances, and symbolizing such glorious facts, that rebels and traitors looked upon with evil eyes, and one of them—Mumford—had the hardihood to tear it doicn. For this act he was tried liy a drum-head court-martial, aud the verdict being approved by tbe Commanding General he was promptly executed by hang ing. By this act rebels learned a lesson; that the flag was sacred; that its folds could not be trailed iu the dust with impunity, and that henceforth the power it represented must be respected. Gen. Dix along time before, while at the head of the Treasury Department, had given orders to shoot on the spot any cue found tear ing down the U. 8. flag. General Butler act ed in the spirit of this order, aud his action doubUess prevented many rebel insults and acts of violence, and did much to promote the cause rf good order in a city but just wrested from rebel control and even then tilled with rebels who were secretly gnashing their teeth iu rage at the authority to which they wen forced to submit. We submit if it is not mean, dastardly and flagitious to throw this act of prompt pun ishment of treason and insult in tlie face of the only man in the United States who has pun ished the crime of treason with the peualty which the law attaches to tho oflcnce? It would be mean in copperhead paper to do this; in a Republican paper it is flagitious. DisiM; Street*. For the past few weeks we have had our share of bad travelling; it snows one day and rains the next; as soon as the sun has with drawn a supurflous luoistuie a liberal supply is immediately forwarded by the “clerk of tho weather” to fill up vacancies. The only kind of blacking now in use, seems to be “Saccarap pa;” “Day & Martin" has long since gone out of date. Fast young men carefully pick their way aloug, and look with a rueful countenance at their dirty boots. Gaily dressed ladies still continue to promenade the streets with skirts sailed and bespattered with mud. ' The only ones that really seem to enjoy this kind of walking are a few dirty hoys, who make mud walls or sail small pieces of wood down the gutters, and a few young ladies with more water-fall than brains, who avail themselves ot the travelling to show the tops of their boots to young men that have no better business than standing on the street corners, making lewd speeches about the passers by. It is amusing to hear the expressions of an guish and despair as one walks along. One wishes to charter a boat, another offers a com panion a small sum to he carried “pig back” to the opposite side, and some of the modes ot speech are anything but refined. As we pass along we see muddy horses, mud dy carriages, mud up town, mud down town, mud everywhere. If you should happen to accomplish the difti cultfcatot choosing your way until you have almost reached your destination, ten to one that some small boy comes along and splashes the foul mixture all over you, or some rude fel low crowds you off the crossing, aud dashes your fond hopes to the slime below. Rubber hoots are the only remedy that I can offer, but oue does not wish to wear them all summer, and I think all will agree witli me that we have had Quantum tnifflr it for one year atleast-_Henry. Democracy n. Jtlrrwa. Iu the general principles of government laid down by Thomas Jefferson is the following: Absolute acquiescence in the decisions o/ the majority, the vital principle of republics, from which there is no appeal but to force, the vital principle and immediate parent of despot ism. Tho New York World, perhaps the most an tlioritative ns it certainly is tho ablest of the Democratic journals of the country, says: The government of an unrestrained majority is the worst of all possible tyrannies. And again: The absolute will of a majority is even more Intolerable than tho absolute will of a monarch, since it may consist of infinite strands of in dividual tyranny twisted together into one tre mendous cable. The doctrine of the H’uWd is the common idea of the Democrats of tho present time. They distrust the people and the people’s rep resentatives, aud would adopt tho suggestion of “Nasby,” that power should he diffused through one man, and that umu Andrew Johnson, rather than concentrated in the na tional Congress; and yet the papers who thus teach and the people thus taught, still appeal to Jefferson, and claim to be his diciples! —All the papers are praising Ticknor & Fields’ Diamond Dickens—an edition of Dick ens’s works in diamond type; three sizes small er than the smallest type in this paper.

The name on the title page of this book is one dear and familiar to many, though she who once Imre it no longer responds to it on earth. To those who once knew her it will come as a welcome message from tile pure heart and earnest mind of her who is now at rest from her labors. To many others, its taithtul spirit, its simple and practical teach ings, will make it a help and comfort, a source ot strength ami wisdom lor the ever-recurring conflicts, the ever-opposing toes ot life, A great deal of patient labor has becu expended upon Jbe hook; it is rich with tho experience of an earnest, tender, spiritual life. We learn from the preface that it was written at inter valsduring a space ot four years, and kept by its author for revision and improvement from time to time, hut her brief and beautiful life closed before she was ready to give to tho world the work she had prepared with such a fervent spirit. The affectionate remembrance in which she is held, added to its own intrinsic merits, will commend the book to a large cir cle of thoughtful and appreciative readers. For sale by Hall L.

It is based upon the very well known Bible Dictionary of Dr. Smith, a work of ac knowledged excellence, hut one which from its size, cost and scholarly character can be used by but few. The new work now pro imsed will be this dictionary of Dr Smith and his coadjutors popularized to a cer tain extent, improved,doubtless, in some par ticulars, diminished from three volumes to one and, finally,made very much cheaper .Itsprice,in semi-monthly numbers at thirty cents a num ber, will he not far from seven dollars. Prepared as Dr. Smith's dictionary was, by many difter cut writers who held dillerent views on many poiuts of doctrine and of biblical criticism, of course contradiction and discordance between articles are not infrequent. In “The Compre hensive Dictionary” all this is, so far as possi ble, changed. The editor, the Rev. S. \V. Bar uum, who was Prof. Goodrich's principal assis tant in the revision ol “Webster’s Dictionary,” says that he has “unhesilatingly omitted expres sions and sentiincuts which are hostile to the views orneedlesely offensive to the feelings of most evangelical Christians.” The illustra tions and mechanical execution of the work are, judging from the advance sheets, of a high order. —The Messrs.
