southern fanatics, who are professed democrats, 
are now working more injury lo the democratic

The position assumed by these ultra southern

the position which they now occupy is both ab-

During the late canvass, those Don Quixotes 
were continually shrieking to the North that if 
Buchanan were not elected the Union would be 
dissolved. Since the election these same fil- 
ibusters are continually reminding the public 
that they forced the North into submission by their 
‘•bold and fearless ultimatnm,’’ when every one 
who understands the facts of the case must admit 
that the late election was won for the democracy 
despite of these southern fanatics. It is a well- 
known fact, that the main argument used against 
the democracy, both by the press and on the 
stump at the North, was these Bombastes Furioso

Fromj^lbanv — The Inundated District Fro- 
zen Ov^g — Yesterday hundreds of citizens were 
to he seen moving over the ititti. dated district.! 
The wea liter lias been so cold that the wa'er has 
frozen to the depth of several inches in the stores, ! 
wltiie in the streets and upon the river it is suffi- 
eientlv strong to bear teams, a nnmlitr of which 
crossed over to East Albany and Gteenbush dur 
iitg the day. On the docks, the ice is nearly up 
to the second -tory ol the stores, and hosts of men 
and boys are enjoying the fine ska-ing that it at- 
fords. On the Steamboat Landing the ice was 
piled up in immense quantities. One would sup- 
pose that it could not be removed by midsummer. 
Lp to yesterday passengers front from the South 
and Last were detained at East Albany since 
Monday morning. There the most shameful exac. 
tions were practiced by tii. owners of horses wag- 
ons, who charged $23, and. in some instances, as 
high as fitly dollars, to convey a passenger to 
I toy, a distance of six miles. 

The village of Greenbush was literally sub- 
merged. From Sunday nig'it up to yesterday 
there was no communication between the village 
and the city. Yesterday was the first that any 
information as to the actu 1 damage done there 
reached us. It was thought to have been consid- 
erabe, but reality exceeds all that was conjectured 
Not a house in the village escaped damage. Eve- 
ry- body has sustained loss — the losses ranging 
from 810 to 53,000. People were driven bv the 
rising waters first from their basements, then from 
the first floors, aod again from the second stories 
to the attics. 

The subsiding of the flood hns enabled us to 
visit that portion of our city which has been inun- 
dated and is still surrounded with ice and water-
