An organization called the Jackson Democratic State Association was formed there yesterday. If it could only have been Jefferson and Jackson, or Jackson and Jefferson, there could be no doubt as to the result. ; TwaWs 'brother thieves, Woodward, Garvey and IngereolL, seem to have fled . before th-t storm. Garvey is known to hare gone to Eurore under an assumed name, and the others have been missing for several days.' If they have secured their property isafely, they will be able to coipe back soon to enjoy it . m , TiJk New York Bar Association adopted resolutions.last night, declaring that Thomas A:. Ledwith, tlie nominee for Supreme Court Justice, does not deserve the support of the legal fraternity or the people. W hether he deserves it or not he 'is store of support enough to give him th place for which lie so basely sold out to Tammany. More s the pity that there are not enough decent votes there to kill Jnm. . These is much concern in New York over the non-arrival of Grand Duke Alexis. liy cometh he not . is the gnevons in quiry that tries th souls of the reception committee men. ' They have ben ready for him, lo, these two weeks, and have ; kept a vigorous look-out at 8andy Hook, but there, are ho signs yet of the Prince. Some even think he is not coming at all, others that he is cruising about leisurely ignorant tiiat sojnany hearts are palpitating with excitement produced directly by ! him, and all are tired of asking day after day, "Has the fleet been seen yet?' The Duke ought to hurry. Things will Bpoil soon; the enthusiasm will have died out, and even some of the flunkeys and snobs won't admire royalty so much as they have been threatening to do. . . . A Ifovel Negotiation. The telegraph tells- us that Brigham Young has instructed Mr. llooperr-the polygamous delegate in Congress from the land of Saints, to propose to , that, body that if it will admit his .Territory as a State, and dismiss the indictments now landing against himself and followers, he 'wil abolish pblygsuny. Tne iiews does not come in a very authentic shape, but Uiere are many circumstances that make it not improbable.. Utah lias population enough for a State, and, except its distinctive domestic institutions a more moral, industrious and prosperous popu lation than has ever brought m a new State since civilisation passed the Missis sippi. The proposition is one, therefore, that can not be resisted on merely tech nical grounds, if anybody were disposed to resjst Young can do what, he pro poses.' He established poh-gamy by a revelation. He jean destroy it by the wime means. There is little doubt - that liia followers would; in the main, accept one as fully if not as heartily as the other. And both he and they know that however quietly-a woman may submit to be married to a fraction of a man, she can not and does not consider it the happiest con dition oi womanhood, fehere is a silent beyond the Western sea . Young lenows that the first attempt at organized reast-, ance to the law is the end of his theoera-1 cy, of bis Jivealth, of pcrfygamr, ana ot Mormonkm on this continent He,jthere-fore, sees nothing either , in the peaceful Droeress of the countrv. in the execution of the laws or resistance to the laws, the ruin of Dolvcam v.

If the criminal prosecutions go on, and a conflict ensues,' the problem will be a very ugly one, ( far too complicated for the solution of those "root and branch" men who are the curse of practi cal statesmanship. Ye have plenty of such men., They fix their premises in certain moral principles and go right on from them to any result that lies logically ahead, no matter) what it may be. They kllow no compromise with evil, no tolerance of sin. Thev would manage i the ship of state just as wisely as the master who should make rigging with no allow- ance for the strength of a gale ; an engine with no calculation for the resistance of friction arid gravity and atmosphere; a hull with :no adaptation of the 'lines" to the obstruction of the water; in short, who should follow logical deductions without any compromise with resisting natural forces. . Wendell Phillips is ene of these, a mischievous man -because he can't see the practical elements that must be managed, and would wreck everything! tinAfi tham hana noil nrt coiinn tham rA LA rJMk VAAC:iAA lVt aUOV MtKJlf OVlllg V. AAA AA V don't believe they exist Sumner is another, and Fred Douglass. A government can do better with any other set of men, no matter even if they be rascals. This class of statesmen wouH push polyg- amy to the wan, "crusn it without mercy, sir," and ruke infinite' evil at the expense of achieving a result that can be easily achieved without it Polygamy is doomed, as we think appears plainly jenough from the considerations wei have presented, and if it will (li without making a disturbance, what wisdom is there in proceeding to strangle it while it has strength to shake the whole land! with WocmIv disturbsnce,? ',Te hope the j-eport we have noticed may be true, but if it is j not we hope that- Congress will regulate the operations ofj the little gentlemen of Federal appointment in Utah, so that they shall not force a war, which will do nothing to remove nolvjramv' and much to - r .o oppress the nation with taxes. The Old Tnrnplke. We hear no more of the clanging hoof, And the tage couch rattling: by, For the steam kins rule the travel world. And the ol.f pike's left to die. - , The graje creep o'er the the flinty path, j And the stealthy daisies steal Where nnre the stage horee, day by day, Lifted his iron hei;l. No more the weary stager dreads . The toil of the coming morn : No mere the bustling landlord runs At the Round of the echoing horn ; . For the dust lies still ob the dusty read, i ! And the bright eyed children play 1 Where once the clattering hoof and wheel ' Kettled along the way. No mors we hear the cracking whip. And thestrocg wheels' rumbling sound ; And ah ! the water drives us on, And an iron hone is found! The coach stands rusting in the yard, j The horse has sought the plow, We have spanned tbe world with an iron rail, And the steam king rules us now. The old turnpike is a pike no more; - Wide optn stands the gate; ' We lve made us a road for our horse to stride, A nd we ride at a fl ing.rate : We hive f!llei (he valleyand leveled the hills, And tunneled the mountain side. An d around the rough Trap's dizzy verge, Fearlessly we ride. ' On On On with A h'sughty front, A pnfT, a shriek and a pound ; While the Utrdy echoes wake too late To echo back the sound ; ' And tbe bid pike road is left alone, A nd tbe stagers seek the plow ; We have circled the earth with an Iron rail, ' and ine steam King ruiea us now.
