I For Impartial Suffrage Yes.
I From the Irish Kcpablie.
j The leopard may change his spots,
tut man must hold on to his darling
prejudices. It seems to be contrary to
human nature to throw off its narrow
bigotry, and array itself in the heav
enly robes of liberality. Eighteen
hundred years ago, from the Cross on
Calvary, Christ forgave his crucifiers.
Heaven forgave, but man did not

do for men, and they, too, must have
vengeance. This is but one of the
many cases where humanity has per
sisted in having its victims. It seems
to be as requisite for men to drive their
chariots over the crushed hearts of
their unfortunate feilow-men as to in
hale vital air. The freest ppop'e on
earth have their prejudices and liber
! alisms, and always find it impossible 'o
1 see the motes in their own eyes. It
is. therefore, hard to find even an in
dividual who his not some of the dregs
of bigo;ry in his nature, ns part of the
"sina of the fathers visiting the chil
dren." Tha woild is moving, however.
rhere has been a general smashing up
en years. 1 revious to that time, four
millions of men, here in free Ameri
ca, were legalized chattels. Slavery
was an institution over whose sacred
ness the tegis of the Constitution was
thrown, and to enter its forbidden
ground, unless with shoes off" the feet
and with bated breoth aj-d reverential
awe, was death.
When John Brown marched to the
i scafTolil, tiftween ecowlinp; rows of the
"chivalry of erfdom," and when Gov.
Wise saw the lav" vindica'ed, and pro
nonnced the "old traitor" dead, who
thought that there would be such a
general delivery, and that the arrogant
turn of the South, whose pride and
strength and gluiy were r.rawn from
tbe lives of their human chattels, in
defending their accursed institution,
I would be trampled iiito the dust beneath
the icct of freemen chanting
"J'l" nr.u'j boor liesamouiaerinilnti.cfraTe,
Hut in ' ii tonl marching out''
Whj that has witneseJ tLe eman-
cipationof -1.000,000 of men will des
pair of the ultimate triumph of freedom
over despotism the world over i It re
mains for the country that smashed
their letters to complete the work, and
make the slave of yesterday a free
man indeed. It is useless for men to
evade the subject of impartial suffrage
by sophistry unless to bring up that
tyrants' plea against giving men their
freedom, "that they are not capable of
u?ing tL eir freedom judiciously," The
men who have the souls of fighting
and dying for freedom cau be surely
trusted with the simple privilege cf the
ballot. The party who would deprive
the black man of his full rights to
'equality before the law," would also
deprive white men of those same rignts,
did the opportunity offer.or their selfish
ness require them to do to. We appeal
to our countrymen who, having escaped
from a system of slavery fully as bad as
that which was washed out in the blood
of its supporters in America, to rise
above all petty prejudices, and give
their voices and votea to seeure the
rights of the persecuted. Shall we,
countrymen, like the shipwrecked mar
iners who, having been flung upon the
rocks beyond the reach of an angry
seaff fling back ail others who seek to
escape from death? or shall we, being
safe ourselves, extend a charitable
hand to all sufferers, and welcome them
to that rtfuge to which we were wel
comed ourselves by others? The eyes
of the nation are on us. Our duty to
America demands, that having received
all th grand privileges to which citi
zens are entitled, we should not b the
selfish ingrates that would deny to oth
ers what we demand for ourselves.
Give the black man liberty without
the ballot he is till a slave and lib
erty will not suffer thereby. Having
escaped from slavery, he will know how
to sympathize with struggling nations ;
and when the time comes that Ireland
fppl. ablft tn lrik( fnr Kr in-lononH.
leels ac"e 10 s,Ke I0r ner lOjepena-
ence. everv black voter in America
will cast his ballot for freedom agaiost
tyranny. The only objection offered
by the enemies of universal liberty
against the black man's right to the
ballot, is his ignorance. That, having
escaped from a slavery where a'l ih
nues of intelligence were relL
shut out from his darkened soul, he is
not fit to use the ballot. The great
trouble is, that were he admitted to f u)
citizenship he would use the ballot
against his enemies and the enemies of
liberty. The English Government
so high in their regard for conserva
tive civilization prohibit the ballot and
the use of arms by the Irish peo
pie. They say give those ignorant
Irish arms, and they will kill each oth
er. Give them the ballot, and they
will not use it judiciously! The Irish
people would use that ballot and bullet
against the tyrants who have rebbed
and murdered them, and this the tyrants
know. While petitions mile-long, and
monster talk-meetings, are legal and
fostered by this same Government in
Ireland, men are incarcerated in Brit
ish dungeons for harboring gun caps
in their vest pockets." As for the
ballot; the Irish cannot be trusted wi'h
it, they are too ignorant Oh, coun
trymen, how blindly and criminally
have we not applied the English argu
ment against the black man ! Why
should we be afraid to give this injured
and persecuted race the right to pro
tect themselves the ballot when the
great intelligence of America is n -t
afraid? Away with those narrow ex
cuses. They are too flimsy to hide the
reiil motive, which is a damnable and
unaccountable prejuJice. One of the
bitterest enemies ot the Irish race in
America, the Cleveland Ilera'J, in try
ing to prejudice the American mind
against us, as a people, fltigs our iucon
sistencies in our face, and asks us how
we can ask for liberty when we deny
liberty to others ? It says:
"In conclusion, Mr. Lavan claims
that the Fenian Brotherhood have pro
claimed their determination to uphold
civil and religious liberty everywhere.
To be consistent, therefore, every Fe
nian in Ohio will vote on the second
Tuesday of October for the constitu
tional amendment, which perfects civil
liberty to the negro in this Stale. Will
they do it? If they do not and no per
son has the slightest idea that it will be
done their professions in behalf of
civil and religijus liberty are mere
Let us meet this like men- It tan
not be avoided. We must vote for im
partial suffrage or stultify ourselves.
In the name of Ireland, which has
never been false to liberty, we appeal
to the Irish voters of America to ac
as becomes men who are seeking to
restore their country's lost liberty.
Tne Irish race in Ireland have been
always true to principle, and one of
the grandest acts in the life of O'Con
nell was bis refusal to touch the mo
ney caused from the tears of the slave.
If we desire the sympathy of Amer
ica for the cause of Ireland, we must
not be niggardly in measuring out to
others what we want ourselves.
While thus appealing in a selfish
and interested point of view, to cur
people, we would have them take their
stand for liberty on higher grounds
than self, and that is, immortal princi
pie. Let our people fling ofFihe rcales
of bigotry, and declare that all men
are entitled to "life, liberty and happi
ness-" Let them go to ihe polta, not
only in Ohio, but in every State in th
Union, and vole for Impartial Suffrage
EsF" There is a curious tory in
Houston, Texas, of an indignant indi
vidual who kicked the cover off the
coffin the other day, as ihey were on
their way to the '-dismal grave." It
seems that he was foolisri enough to
suppose he wasn't quite dead, nn 1 heuce
the catastrophe. Afier some dispute
with the pall bearers, whether he was
in his "right sense or mind,'' he was
brought back and put to bed, with a
fair chance of recovery.

Is it Peace ?
Senator Thayer discovered and an
nounces that the President means mis.
thief. The worthy Senator can hard
ly claim a patent on his discovery.
Through the darkness and fog of the
past two year?, voices of warning have
been constantly heard. But Congress,
anxious about offices and especially
about the next Presidential election.
has laughed at the warning as the ra
ving of fanatics, and Las gone on,
month after mornh, trusting and hoping
and trying new experiments, until for
bearance has ceased to be a virtue and
confidence has become a crime. Ii is
well that there are signs that members
begin to discover what others have
been shouting to them so long that a
traitor in the White House means mis
chief to the country; that he cannot
be tied up by cob-web laws, and will
be a constant source of peril until he
is impeached and removed.

To the Editor of the Chicago Tri
Your telegraphic enrrespondent at
Wooster, Ohio, condenses my long
speech there last Tuesday in the fol
lowing half-dozen lines:
" In regard to impeacament, Mr. C
said he longingly counted the days til
Congress would again meet, when An
drew Johnson would be brought before
the Senate for impeachment; and in
regard to the threat attributed to the
President that he would prorogue Con
gress, he said that Mr. Johnson dare
not attempt it, for well he knew the
end would be that his feet would dance
upon the air; while the law-rnakinr
power would con inue to perform Us
functions. These sentiments were re
ceived with great applause."
That was pretty near what I sa'd;
but as, at a time like this, men who
are in public life desire to be judged
on their exact positions, may I ask brief
pace in your columns to say thnt I
counted the days till Congress would
again meet, because in twenty days
after that time. Edwin M. Sttn'on

partment, iu spue of the malignant
President who thought to expel hirn
from the position in wh ch he had served
the country so faithfully; but when
Congress resumed its legislative au
thontv, the House, in accordance with
me uemanas or tne loyal mosses
throughout the land, would be required
to plar e the President before the trib
unal provided by the constitution, to
defend himself from th? chamres of
persistent usurpations, and pr.-istent
violations of the oath wh'ch requires
him 10 take care that the laws shall be
ithfully executed ; and that, while I
uiu not believe Air. Jolin-..n dared to
fulfill the threats against Congress now
being made by his Washington organs,
apparently in his name, ye', whoever
did dare to destroy the Legislative De
partment of the Government by revc
luiionary force, whether President,
Cabinet, Minister, or citizen, would be
tried for his treasrn, and punished as
a traitor, with hi feet, not like the
traitors of the recent rebellion, on the
earth, but in the air.
Even the New York Herald
is indignant at the conduct of Johnson
at Antietam. It accuses him of di
courtesey to the Northern Governors
who were present, says that he "did
not fail to mention his determination
to sustain his policy and the Constitu
tion," and that he talked as a "parti
san" and a "demagogue." It concludes
a long article on the subject, which,
coming from a supporter of "My Pol
icy," may be considered pointed, as
" The Executive being a single per
son, and that, too, at the head of the
nation, he is looked to by all eyes as
an exponent of what should be manly.
gentlemanly and courteous. Instead
of even approaching the ideal, he al
lows the petty feelings of political pas
sion to enter in'o all his dealings with
those who may oppose his career as a
statesman, and on every occasion dis
plays the little mind that disgraces us
as a people. Even Antietam, more
than sacred to us, was not sacred to the
man whom we call President. How
long are these things to be endured ?
How long are we to bow our heads in
shame whenever a national event like
Antietam calls for the broad minds of
real statesmen to give it a tone of
which we may be proud ? How long
are we 10 entertain the representatives
of fereign powers with sights like that
which have made Antietam a disgrace,
and which have reflected that disgrace
throughout the world as a reproach
against the Republicanism of which
we boast ?"
JgiSI? Aaron Jones, the defeated pu
gilist, is a lost and ruined man. He
staked every dollar he possessed upon
the result of the right, and lost it, and,
in addition, has forfeiu d his political
standing in the Democratic party of
New York. He expected to vanquish
McCool, and then, a la Morrissey, ac
cept from an admiring constituency, a
seat in Congress, as he is a better
Copperhead than Morrissey, having
served in the rebel army. Poor Jones ! ,
Stbike the Knot. "Sirike the
knot!" said a gentleman one day to
nis son, who, tired and weary, was
leaning on his ax over a log which he
had in vain been trying to cleave
Then, looking at the log, the gentleman
saw how the boy had hacked and
ch-pped all around the knot without
hitting it. Taking the ax he struck a
few sharp blows on the knot, and split
the log without difficult. Smiling, he
returned the ax to his son, sayincr:
"Always strike the knot!"
That was good advice. It is a cap
ital maxim to follow when you are in
trouble. Have you a hard sum to do
at school ? Are you leaving home for
the first time to live among strangers ?
Strike the knot ! Look your trouble
in lb eye, as the bold lion hunter look s
in the face of the lion. Never shrink
from a painful duty, but step right up
and do it. Yes, strike the knot, boys
and girls, and 3rou will always conquer
your difficulties. Strike the knot, and
crack it goes !
The Montana rost thus pic
tures a Sabbath in ihe mines :
Sunday was beautiful. The Catho-
olic. Episcopal and Methodist churche
wre largely attended, and the songs
of praise were mingled with the voice
of the horse-auctioneer, as he dashed
up and down the crowded street on the
best bargain ever offered on the
gulch." It made rather an amuinf
dialogue at times to listen to the min
ister and the auctioneer. Perhaps they
did not notice, but others did; for in
stance, imagine the following: "What
shall I do to be saved ?" "Buy a first
rate saddle-horse." "What shall a
man give in exchange for his soul?"
Only S37;" or reversing the order,
How much do I hoar for this horse ?"
"Seven baskets of fragments;" "Who
wants to buy him at S40 ?'' Dives in
the torments of hell."
The situation of affairs in
Mexico is assuming a more favorable
aspect. .Late accounts represent that
preparations were being made
for the Presidential election, and
that both Government and people were
beginning to evince a desire for a sea
son of peace and tranquility. On the
23d ult. President Juarez issued an ad
dress to the people, which, although
probably designed for an electioneer
ing document, contained some good
sentiments. He expresses a desire to
have the people decide freely on the
reforms which he has proposed, and to
elect public officers who are most com
petent to take care of the country's in
terest. Meusures have been taken to break
up the gangs of robbers and outlaws
who infest the Mexican roads, and
many reformatory 6teps have been ta
ken. The Mexicans have an innate
love for revolutions, but as they have
lately had enough bloodshed to satisfy
any reasonable ambition, there is
ground for hope that they will become
peaceable by way of change.

A man of property, whose

f:5r The recent opening of Morse's

competition in tbe telegraph business
between the two cities. The old line

Jgiw Henry Ward Beecher speaks
thus of the newspaper:
" The newspaper it never griws
tired. It never wears spectacles. It
never grows old. It is renewed every
morning and is fresh every evening.
It goes everywhere. It penetrates the
forest, the mine, the shanty of the
farthest ser.ler. It is in the shop and
on the ship. It is among the most la
borious men in the city and in the
country. The drayman has it; ihe
sollier has it ; the farmer has it. All
classes read the newspaper. There
are so many in competition that they
swarm in every department of life.
They seem to us as we gaze upon
them, simply as an enterprise ; but in
point of fact, they are instruments
which God is employing to utilize the
thought and feeling of the vastest na
tion that ever held a common population."

Otoe Chief did, when the Mitsiomry

that tribe. Tha tribe had been accus
