POKi'L,AJNU. Saturday Morning, December 22, 18GG. The High! of Hulling.-. The advocates of universal suffrage, start ing with the axiom that every good govern ment rests upon the consent oi the governed, assume that the consent must lie not implied but expressed, and proceed to argue that the right to participate in the business of govern ment belongs, like the rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, to every human being of mature years and sound mind ^unless forfeited by crime. This theory has recently found expression in the United States Senate, and is sufficiently plausible to challenge at tention aud discussion. It will be observed, in the first place, that nobody has yet advocated unlimited suffrage. Certain classes of the community are exclud ed by the most radical reformers. Children, idiots, insane people and paupers who are es teemed to be and usually are weak-minded, are not to vote according to any plan yet pro pounded. The objection, it is instructive to notice, is in all these cases identical. Imma ture or disordered intelligence is accepted as a sufficient disqualification The principle ot limitation is thus accepted on all hands. The symmetry of the theory is nowhere preserved. The fallacious notion of the inborn right of every member of the community to the bal lot, is nowhere carried out to its legitimate results. I tie reason for these limitations is entirely satisfactory. It is not the right of children to govern adults; or of the insane to control the sane. The exercise of such a power would obviously be inconsistent with the safe ty of society, if dangerous in other matters, it would be still more mischievous in affairs of state. We even require a certain ainoum of special training, by association and observa tion, before admitting foreigners to a partici pation in the government. Nobody proposes to give the ballot to immigrants as soon as they land upon American soil. To life, lib erty and the pursuit of happiness, they are welcome at once, but not to the ballot till they have had time to learn something about its use. It the theory admits of limitatjou at all, there is no absolute teason for stopping at one point rather than another, and it becomes an open question, where the line of exclusion shall he drawn. A mistaken notion is also pievaleuc as to what constitutes equality of rights. Hasty and inaccurate thinkers confound the right to be come with the right to be. Evfry native American citizen has a right to become Pres ident, it he can; but only one out Of the mil lions has u right to he President—the man who is elected. There is a perfect equality of opportunity; hut we cannot all be presidents. So the limitations; to the privilege of voting must not atlect the real equality of our citi zens. The same opportunity must he left open to all. The child may grout to man hood ; the mailman may recover his senses; t lie immigrant will in time adapt! himself to our institutions; to all the same opportunity must be left open. The same rule must ap ply to all. And this is really impartial suf frage. Is there any reason then, why the candid ates for this distinction should not be requir ed to possess the keys to knowledge—the ele mentary arts of reading and writing ? it is important to make the voting list us compre hensive as possible, Cranted ; but would such a requirement narrow it lor any length of time'! Would it not rather stimulate the work of elementary education ? Can we trust such constituencies as followed the Southern aristocracy into rebellion, or such as have re cently elected John Morrissey to Congress and quietly allow themsi Ives to be ridden by the most corrupt municipal government in the world, any more than we can trust children or madmen ? The Machias Republican, in a temperate aud judicious article representing the oppo site view, says “ there arc many men in the Free States who cannot lead or write, who are from observation, qualified to miderstaud their duties much better that many who can do so.” Undeniably. So there are many hoys who are better qualified to vote than many men. The law deals with classes, and the Republican will not contend that thenon readiug class is better qualified to vote than the readiug class, nor so well. Conceding that point, we think the Republican will be compelled to abandon its main position, but perhaps not. At any rate we can agree with the Republican in its confidence, that ‘‘by the united wisdom of our statesmen, in concur rence with the people, this question will be satisfactorily setiled.” The bill tor the reor ganization of North Carolina requires voters to read aud write, and we are not without hope that the suffrage bill for the District of Columbia, when returned by the President, will be amended in this particular. A Bright, Particular Nine, Everybody knows that the Portland Star is bright; it appears from its splenetic rejoinder to “E.’s” communication, that the luminary is also rather particular. The Night Lamp, as we sometimes think it ought to be called, is very severe on ' E.” It is no bu-incss of ours; the light may be free but we prefer to be count ed out. The Star made up its political slate, to the best of its knowledge and belief. “E.” undertook to pass a sponge over it, and got in to trouble accordin’. We don’t blame the Evening Glow-worm fur maintaining its grouud, though it seems to us that there is a good deal of unnecessary “sloshing round.”— The Star speaks, for instance, of“E.’s” commu nication appearing “in the editorial columns” of the Press. That, as the Twinkler must be aware, is a fib. The communication appeared in the column which is most commonly used for communications. The Press never shirks the responsibility of its own utterances. It refuses cither to suppress or to be held responsible for the opinions of correspondents. The attempt of the Nocturnal Luminary to suggest a re sponsibility which it did not dare to charge di rectly is a violation of the Golden Rule, which we forgive in consideration of the evident ex citement under which the Luminary was la boring. There is an oracular utterance at the close of the Star’s piolracted remarks, which we have no disposition to misunderstand. It is this:— “It we have done injustice to any man, there are still ways of reparation. After convention, a due amount of supine obsequiousness will correct the whole.” This we understand to be an allusion to the State convention which met at Bangor last summer. “Supine obsequious ness” is the Star’s characterization of the frank acceptance of a nomination which the Press la bored to prevent. We are perfectly willing to reconsider that matter, at any time which suits the Star’s convenience. Subsequent events have lully justified the course of the Press, as even the Star ought to kuow. We gave ex pression to the doubt and alarm with which a large portion of the Republican party all over the State looked upon the appearance of a can didate proposed by the Bangor Times and sup ported by the Johnson faction generally, jt was General Chamberlain’s misfortune that these men, for purposes of their own, pro nounced so unanimously and vociferously in his favor. Our estimate of them has been fol ly confirmed. In the midst of the campaign the Bangor Times went over ts Pillsbury, and Hr. Garnsey, who presented Gen Chamberlain’s name to the convention, went over openly and without reserve to the Johnson interest. The desertions were all from what in June was the Chamberlain wing of the party. Such being the political character of many of General Chamberlain’s supporters, while it was not gen erally known until the day the convention met, that he had ever cast a vote tor the Republican policy, is it strange that a large section oi the party warmly urged the nomination of another man—a Republican so well known and so admirably qualified for the office as Mr. Spring? Wht u at last, moved by th» fair and frank presentation of tbe ease in the Press, General Chamberlain’s friends repaired their eiror and gave us the greatly needed assurance that he had previously acted with the Republican par ty, that assurance enabled us to accept tbe nomination. His letter of acceptauce set him fully right, and drove bis quondam supporters into the Democratic ranks. From that mo ment to this the Press has supported Gen. Chamjierlain as warmly as if he had been our first choice. We might have complained of the packed galleries at Bangor, and the dis franchisement of our delegates. We preferred not to waste time in idle complaints. We did not intend to help elect a Johnson man gov ernor of Maine, under am circumstances; but we conceived it to lie a duty to yield our natu ral preference for a fellow-citiaeu to the decis ion of the convention. If this be obsequious, make the most of it. Winter. We read au article the other day in a Balti more paper, written evidently in a spirit quite too petulant to be styled amiable, setting forth the evils ol a northern winter, without the ac knowledgment of a single circumstance in its favor; as if Providence, in this matter, had for gotten or disregarded that wise system of com pensation in the vicissitudes of the seasons, which appears in every other department of na ture. According to his account, everything here in New England is cold—our wind is cold, water is oold, feet are cold, noses are cold, shirts and sheets are eold; it is cold outside and cold inside. In short the world iu which we live is cold, and the hearts in it are cold as icebergs. Here, too, so far from «the equator and the sun, every thing is dark ; the clouds are dark; the night is ‘dark; the day is dark aud human intellects ate dark. In addition to this, everything hereabouts is blue; looks are blue; women’s cheeks are blue and the prospects oi our people are blue. If the writer, even in ge nial Baltimore, did not himself have the blues when he wrote, he must have had the unwont ed faculty of seeing darkness by daylight. Such a person does injustice to divine Provi dence, and maligns the real facts in the case. The blessings of Heaven are more equally dis rtibuted through the successive seasons than many are willing to allow. Said Solomon, “God hath made every thing beantiful in its time." If green things are beautiful in sum mer, equally so are the white fields of winter. If the teeming earth lies at rest in her slum bers during the winter, she only thus allows her human occupants to enjoy thenselves the more merrily while she sleeps. Winter in the North is, after all, the liveliest aud merriest season of the whole year. The timely snows give us railroads in every direction “through forests, field and lawn,” and the music of the bells imparts liveliness to the scene. The social effects of winter, too, are of ines timable value and importance to our communi ties. There is then more time for visiting aud for reading, for lyceums and other literary as sociations which abound in New England. It is to the rigors of a northern winter that we are indebted for much of our moral aud social pre-eminence over the sunny South. With the December solstice winter has be gun. Let the long evenings now before us be well appropriated to purposes of intellectual improvement aud social happiness. As the father returns to bis fireside horn tlie toils and cares of a busy life, let him arrange for certain evenings in the week, a system of judicious family reading. Let him select some useful works of history, biography, travels, &c., aud cause them to be read in course liy some mem ber or members of his household, taking care to give variety and interest to the sittings by seasonable conversations involving useful hints and suggestions as the exercises proceed. In this way he may save his children from vain and careless reading within doors, and from bad company and vicious influences abroad, and thus confer a lasting good upon his rising family. No person deserves to enjoy the rela tion or the honored name of father who does not by some such system, take good care to feed the minds «f his offspring with salutary intellectual and moral food, as well as to pro vide for their mere animal wants. “The mind is the stature ot the man," and thatshould en gage the first care and the highest thoughts of every parent to whom is committed the solemn responsibility of so trainlug up the children which God haH committed to their care, that when they become old they will not depart from the right way. Thaxi. Dr; Pickle. If you would have beef for your table, that wbeu rooked, will be sweet and tender, losing none of its natural fluids by dilution with wa ter, prepare a pickle as follows. We have tried it for years and have found it superior to the celebrated Knickerbocker pickle, or any other made with water: For 100 lbs. beef take 4 quarts coarse rock salt finely pulverized. 4 lbs. brown sugar—fiue and dry. 4 ouuces saltpetre, pulverized. Mix the whole together, and rub the prepar ation well into each piece of beef, aud pack it down snug in the barrel. In a tew days the juices of the meat will dissolve the preparation and make pickle enough to cover the beet. Put no water in. Let there be no other liquid than the natural juices of the beef. Traxi. California Mann. The Sail Francisco Bulletin criticises a re cent artiule on “Slang” in the London Review, for omitting to notice the racy idiomatic phrases of California. It says: That a country which has exhibited so much vitality in slang as California, and has as it were, crystallized so many of its peculiarities into succinct and crisp expression, should be overlooked in this catalogue is offensive to the egotism of every citizen. A country which has elevated slang to the dignity of geographical nomenclature; which rejoices iu the pastoral village ot “One Horse Town,” has certainly some claims on posterity. With what a vivid conception of the amiable gambling weakness es of our pioneers will the future historian speculate up m the first of these euphonious titles. For,the it observed, Californiau slang, unlike the illegitimate conventionalisms of other countries, has always some significant local derivation. Our.half-yearly droughts are expressed in the once popular ejaculation “Dry up," as well as the acme of silent sterility and evaporated fluency. To “slosh around” exhib its that prevailing fluidity which bespeaks rainy seasons and diluvial epochs. “Played out’Ms another reminiscence of the gambling table, and expresses vividly that hopeless con dition of affairs, in which even the operations of chance are suspended. "To copper,” or to “stake one’s pile, belongs to the gambling epoch of onr civilization, while to “take stock” in any statement, theory or suggestion, at once proclaims a degree ot unsuspecting and imbe cile credulity, which the history of the past few years makes doubly significant. To “climb down” to anything is Western or Pike Califor nian, (Pike itself being derivative slang,) and is perhaps the most graphic description of painful and laborious retrogcssion; an act whiah involves all the energy and danger of climbing without its ambition or hopefulness. Of course there are many examples of Cali • fornia slang which stand solely on their own immediate and individual merits; sentences and epithets which have neither conception nor gestation, but which have sprung, like Miner va, fully armed from the brain of some Califor nian ,love. “Get!” as an intransitive verb seems to lack completeness and significance; but as the abbreviated form of “Get up and get" it gives us a vivid picture of the tiausfor iuation ol inertness into activity. “You get!” and the apparition ol a revolver placed at the head of a miduight burglar; “You bet,” and the disappearance of the head, as related in the popular anecdote, is a pure California idyl. To be “on” anything, expresses something' more tqan habit, an adaplibihty of the individual to the habit, which no other term can express. A Water Lily. The following exquisite rnorceau is from a lately published volume entitled “Poems, by Robert J. Weeks.” Touch it not; too cold anil white It lies in its dreamy, silent sleep, over the waters still and deep, Still and deep and dark as night. Touch it not. tor well I know, Far away down deep below, Its roots are tangled in the hair, ttiolden and long Uke this you wear,) Floating over a face ns lair, And as white and still and cold, ah, me, As the voiceless flower reflected there Dreaming over the mysterv. Touch it not; for such are we; Beautiful blossoms of Life that grow O’er an unknown depth, with roots that lie Floating, hut linked with a Becret tie t To a beautiiUl death below. —The Lutheran Church iu Russia has at its head the General Consistory, whose seat is in St. Petersburg, and which consists of twelve members, with a president.
