The claim recently put forward
j that the Republican party is the on

try which has had vigor and con
science enough to punish its own

Kellogg in Louisiana and Chamber
lain, the former "pal" of Moses, the
"Robber Governor," in South Caro

for the most part. And that machinery
' has neither a conscience nor a soul.
, If it is amazed at anything it is the
; audacity of the people in daring to
inqniro into its actions. If the Re
I publican party is to be judged by its
machinerv it would f.-ivo lullv in rhr
eves of the world. Rut bad Rc,ml- 1

the author of the gag-la has been !

beaten in Vermont; the majority of
Garfield has boon reduced from 11,-
vvv to .J,;oo; l'arsons, who was
1 l i iriii
lesser criminal, was defeated; Ren
I Rutler is in danger; Kelley is not j
j yet elected. Of tho thirty-six mem- !
bers of tho Forty-second Congress
who returned their backpay, nine
have been re-elected; of tho two
hundred and seven who kept their
back-pay, only one so far has been
returned. Rut these results have in
every instance been accomplished by j
Republicans acting in opposition to j
and outside of the Republican part-, j
All this simply proves that while j
the machincrj of the party has be
come rotten and corrupt tho masses
ot the Republicans arc unaffected.
They have punished Republican
rogues in defiance of the party or
ganization. Tho argument, there-
j fore, is one that cannot be used with
an7 degree of propriety bv tho partv !
hacks. It is, on the contrary, the j
argument of all arguments which
tbcj siicuitl avoiJ because it con-
tains their condemnation. S. V.

lowing items of news from a lctter
which wo have just received from J.
G. Martin who used to go to school
at the Grove but is now soldiering it

Ho says that it began snowing at
Camp Halleck where ho is garrison
ed on the 25th of October. He says
that the Order of Patrons of Hus-
baudry is almost unknown thore but j
thinks that if they were nioro nu

THE FIRST THOUSAND DOLLARS.
The first thousand dollars that a
young man, after going out into the
world to act for himself, earns and
save3 will generally settle the ques
tion of business life for him. There
may be exceptions to this statement:
yet, for a rule we think that it will
hold true. The first condition is
that the young man actually earns
the thousand dollars in question. lie

PRESIDENT GRANT AND ATTORNEY

Chicago, November 13. A "Wash
ington special to the 'Inlcr-Orran&nyti
Attorney General Williams, in con
versation to-dav, savshe believes the
Xolitical sentiment of the Republi
cans ha3 not undergone any perma
nent change. There was great dis
satisfaction at some measures of the
Republican party, and that was de
veloped at the recent election. It is

that when the party's position comes
to be defined it will fall by it. He
has no idea that the Democrats can
satisfy the country on these nubjects
any better than thcRcpublicans havo
done. Grant, he says, feels cheerful
over the defeat. The Attorney Gen
cralj in speaking of the third term
agitation, says he has always be
lieved the discussion to bo mere
moonshine; that it was nothing more
than clap-trap, gotten up for effect
on the recent election.

A Cario correspondent writes, un

A visit to the Nile et tho present

they appear, against an over-flow
