The stages are now running on long time
(From the Washington Patriot.)
That at the end of the Avar the
predominant feel ing towards liitii
who had been fortunate enough to
win its latest victories was grati
tude, no one will deny. On this
foundation, -when political honor
was to be bestowed upon him in
the form of the highest executive
office in the gift of the people, was
raised a superstructure, if not of
actual confidence, certainly of gen
erous hopefulness; and even those
who voted against hin found abun
dant consolation for political defeat
in a certain sort of conviction that
he would be true to the' .high and
not to the low instinct (for'there are
both) of the soldier.
That there has been and is deep
and bitter disappointment, extend
ing far beyond tho limits of mere
political opposition, and souring
the affections and fretting the tem
pers of his own friends, is beyond
all question. It shows itself in di
vided councils, disorganized action,
political reverses in all directions ;
so that, with every effort to
strengthen the cohesiveness of the
power of patronage, (we prefer the
mild word,) ."Republicanism " is
disintegrated, and the President
has no party but the mere camp
folio wers. Contrast his position
with that of the other soldier whom,
years ago, popular enthusiasm lifted
into the Presidncy. On the 4th of
3farch, 1829, Andrew Jackson was
inaugurated, In November, 1S0O

ence which the present Executive
has completed he was as strong
in the affections of the people as he
ever had been, and this though
there were clouds lowering in Ins
sky and subterranean "elements
surging under his feet. Neither
the tempest above nor "the waters
under the earth" moved his firm
tread. He looked aloft, and he
stepped proudly. He did not fidget
and fume about trifles. Ho did
not hanker, as it were, for the habits
of his old profession. Then, too,
the grand words of that ancient
soldier's inaugural ! How strangely
they sound now-a-days ! "I shall
never," said Andrew Jackson, "dis
regard the salutary lesson of polit
ical experience, which teaches that
the military should always be held
strictly subordinate to the civil
power." This he said, and this he
meant, and, as we know, the affec
tions of the people clung the more
closely round him. Our other sol.
dier Presidents Harrison and Tay
lor died too soon to test their ten
ure of popularity ; but in the few
months which were vouchsafed to
them they appointed no relations
to office, and made no grotesque
mistakes, buch are the sad mem

to the judgment which the Ameri

so as, far in its agpnies it has time
to think of us have formed on
this unfinished and, in every sense,
Creat and far-reaching as is the
disappointment, it is greatest and
most poignant in this, that the
word of honor which, in the mo
ment of victory, the successful
soldier gave, has not been kept,
and that the prayer for peace if

lias been wilfully and cruelly, by
the acts of the suppliant himself,

peace, accidental though it be.
There is no visible foreign entan
glement. There is absolute sub
missiveness throughout the length
and breadth of the Southern coun
try, on the part of all, leaders and
masses, who so recently were in
arms, They arc degraded by
actual contact with men who are
offensive to them, less their former
menials than the political adven
tures whom the policy of the
Executive has forced among them;
but, even in their humiliation,
their "parole," the plighted word
of honor, is sacred, and hardly a
whisper of complaint escapes their
hps. Still, there is not the peace
which General Grant- promised,
and the patriotic North of all par
ties expected." The Federal bay
onet yet gleams; the rickety fab
rics called State governments in
the South are, in many places, up
held by the armed Federal, au

Carolina, popular sentiment, strug
gling peacefully for redress, has
been redressed by the strongliand.
The great lesson taught by recupe
rated Virginia first, and by North
Carolinia afterwards the illustra
tion they give of the capacity of
even a half-enfranchised people, if
left to themselves, to administer
their own affairs this admonition
is stolidly and contemptuously
sregarded ; and Georgia and
Texas stand as monuments of
rustratcd pacification. And, all
this while, no word of kindness, of
mercy, or of consolation, to cheer
the South, comes from the com-
ressed lips ot its conqueror, and
not a hope for the future is held
out. JNo Czar ' ever was more

Wc do" the President the justice
to believe that such conduct
such feelings are not congenial
to his nature or of his own promp
tings. These were not the emo
tions with which, in his moment of
natural exultation, he received the
sword of Lee at Appomattox. He
thought then, we .doubt not, only
of generous reconciliation. The
easy nature, to harden which, it
seems, the tires or war are needed,
and which reveals itself in the inert
cility with which he accepts gifts
and appoints relatives to office, and
yields to pernicious influences and
remembers favorites was unable
to resist the clamor and din of
technical politicians. They have
forced and are forcing him into
the extreme measures of an ex-
he, who began
his career to the disgust
politicians, is now their idol,
as radical and arbitrary as they
ever wished to see him. His per
sonal sympathies have been used
o carry him on in this direction.
On no other principle can any one
account for what we must be per
mitted, to call the outrages of
military interposition, by direct
Executive command, recently at
the Northern elections, in Phila
delphia and in New York.
And here we pause, so that we
may speak with emphasis. We
trust the time will come when the
secrets of the Executive Councils,
on this head, will be made known,
and we shall see the official opin
ions which have been given, and
the exact orders that have been
issued. To us, and to all thinking
men, it is simply astounding

terror? Jf it be in his assumed
uuty to see mat the laws arc exe
cuted, he being the judge of what
is the law, and the measure of his
own power, then have we- a Dicta
torship, without express sanction
or without knowing it. There is
no other pretence of direct author
it'. We assert as a principle, rec
ognized everywhere outside of the
ex-Confederate law office of our
Executive, that "a Federal soldier
in arms, except for the purpose of
transit, has no right to put his foot
on the soil of a State, unless au
thorized by express law;" and we
have looked in vain, through all
the old-fashioned and new-fashioned
statutes, Federal and State, to
find a trace of such authority. It
does not exist. There is abundant
authority for deputy marshals and
Federal "posse;" but the marines
in Philadelphia and the regulars at
New York, and the Guerriere's
sailors, had they landed, would
have been invaders, and had they
fired, would have been murderers.
Yet all this was done in a moment
of profound peace, and only failed
to ripen into bloody fruits through
the good order and forbearance "of
an aggreived and insulted people.
