Integrity at a Discount
mere Avas ever a, doubt that
1 resident Grant was not n tool in
the hands of the politicians, that
doubt has been dispelled by the re
moval of Secretary Cox. JJy tliis
act the President has cjiven his alle
giance to that body of managers of
whom Senator Cameron is chief aud
whose motto is not "principle" but
It has been a long time since we
entertained the idea that the present
Executive of the LTnited States wns
ft strictly honest infill. His recep
tion of gifts in money, houses, lands,
horses and trinkets, and his return
a f i in po rt a n t a p po i n t m e n t s 1 1 1 crefo r,
opened our eyes to the fact that, the
days of the rrtiflty of the Presiden
tial ofnee were ended. This settled,
we were prepared not to be surpris
ed at anythiiir; find it was well
for it has saved us the infliction A'
many a shock that our sensitive
moral nature might otherwise have
felt, from the unheard of and out
rageous conduct of the Prcsnlent.
Gen. Cox insisted on the puritv
of his department of the public ser
vice, lie did not want his clerks to
be taxed upon their salaries for the
purpose of applying the proceeds to
carrying the election of some politi
cal blackguard, and refused to al
low any such assessment to be made.
He desired that the appointees of
his department should hold their
positions through merit and a con
scientious discharge of dutv. Put
this did not suit Simon Cameron,
and the other radical leeches who
now control the President and suck
the blood of the people. Hence
they indicated to the executive that
Gen. Cox should be removed, or
lalu r, he resigned knowing that his
conduct had given oltence to the
President's masters, and that his
resignation would be demanded.
Thus, integrity and honesty have
been tabooed in the Interior De
partment, and a warning given to
all the other Secretaries that official
purity will not be allowed to imper
il radical successes in elections.
Hereafter, when Cameron's com
mittee desire to rob the poor clerks
of a portion of their humble salaries
for the. purpose of raising an elec
tion fund, they mu?-t be allowed to
do it. The President is completely
under the thumb of his Senatorial
masters, and has thrown his oMU ial
influence into the scale against an
honest administration of the Cov
intut. We would lather stand in Secre
tary Cox's shoes to-day. a thousand
times, than wear the dishonest and
defiled robes of the President. The
one are the stout brogans of un
fiincliing and ineorruptable oflicial
integrity, and the other the soiled
and befouled garments of a political
prostitute, who co-habits with the
worst of. mankind for the sake of
place and pofit. .Democratic
More Changes. 3rore changes
are contemplated in the Cabinet.
Secretary of State, Fish, will retire
before the 4th cf -March, proximo,
when the present session of Con-
gress expires; and it is said that
Ackcrman, Attorney General, will
withdraw at the same time and be
succeed b one of the present Sen
ators from Oregon, whose term
will then expire, George 11. v d
liams. Another report credits
Pn sident Grant with a desire to
make a place for Pennsylvania in
the Cabinet, aud that, therefore,
Postmaster General, Joint A. C res
well, of Maryland, must resign.
The cause assigned is purely a po
litical one, and selfish at that;
Maryland is democratic and hope
lessly lost to tho republicans ;
Pennsylvania is republican and
can be made more loyal to that
party's fortunes b- the appoint
ment of a Pcnnsylvanian to repre
sent that State in tho Cabinet.
It ts not a question of Mr. C res
well's ability, but simply one to
secure the vote of a great State
for partisan purposes. Still an
other report is telegraphed that
Governor J. W. MeClurg, of Mis
souri, who has been defeated by
B. Grantz Brown, will be "provi
ded for," a vacancy in one of the
Bureau Departments being deter
mined upon for his accomodation.
All the advices from Washington
would indicate that the President
is reconstructing his Cabinet with
a view to insure a re-nomination
and re-election for a second term.
It remains to be seen whether the
republican Congress' will unite
with him for the same purpose.

COURTESY OF BANCROFT LTRRAPY
The Administration afraid to face
the next House.
Xothing can more strikingly
evince the faHure of the Adminis
tration to secure a servile nmjorit
in the next House of Representa
tives (hen the cry, already started
m Presidential circles and presses,
for a -repeal of the law providing
for the meeting and organization
of the new House immediately
after the adjournment of the old
one. If the Administration felt
sure ot securing an organization
m the interest of the protectionists
and their own private ends, there
would be no. delay in assemblin
their "faithful Commons?' Their
conscious weakness makes them
now cry out for delayrtand for at
least si months of grace before
they are brought to judgment.
Meantime, they can probe the na
ture of the wound they have re
ceived, ascertain the number of
the Reveiiic Be tinners,'' ai d
learn how many of them possess
that degree of easy virtue which
can be propitiated by Executive
patronage. During this Interval,
Si T'Vi t fl rv ( i iv' littiJ- livrrlnnr n
reform in the civil service and an
increased purity of administration,
are not likely to be textbooks m
the President's study. If in des
pite of all this manipulation, the
partv ot Revenue Reformers
shall grow correspondingly to the
awakened spirit of the country, as
is probable, then it will be deemed
some advantage at lea-t to have
postponed the evil day of reckon
ing. Of course that day must
come, sooner or later, but to politi
cal defaulters a postponement is
always the cheifest of blessings.
Meanwhile, it is a most healthy
aud encouraging symtom of the
times, that an Administration so
eager heretofore to summon Con
gress in aid and furtherance of its
schemes of political, tyranny, is
now actually afraid to face the
branch of Congress which most
directly reflects the popular will.
History teaches us that tyrants
have often tried this device of
postponing the meeting of the del
egates of the people, and that in
all cases it hits failed to answer
the end proposed. Patriot.

Grant and his secretary think it
highly wrong that a Federal Hag

to a high position one, who, with

A Charleston correspondent of
tho New York World gives the
following picture of aifairs in
South Carolina :
The ruling political majorit' in
this State, . says the Charleston
correspondent of the New York
EWorld, is composed of savages
for such the negroes unquestion
ably are, under the now complete
sepcraticn to . which they have
been brought by their Radical
leaders. New England has stocked
the State with male and female ad
venturers, some few of them have
doubtless been fiithful and compe
tent -.teachers of the blacks, but
the most of them have been after"
the money, and have in many
ways damaged and demoralized
the negro race. There are instan
ces known to me of young and
good looking "school inarms," sup
ported by Northern societies, and
additionally paid out of the State
iunds as teachers m the negro
schools, who grossly scandalize
the communities in which they live
by their intimacies with the young
black and mulatto men ; riding or
walking with them alone far into
the woods, where they are some
times seen in juxtaposition irrecon
cilable Avith decency or virtue. In
some of these cases the mulatto
Lothario has a Avife and family of
his own color, whom he neglects
while paying these agreeable at
tentions to the lair lady from the
far cast. Such women go back
home and complain that they Avere
subjected here to social ostracism,
Avhen, if the' behaved in the same
Avay at home, they Avould be sub
jected to a like ostracism by all
decent " reorle there. Thev feel
and know that they can act thus
here Avith impunity because their
political friends and employers are
delighted to have the white popu
lation mortified by such open pic
tures of the misccgenaceous inter
course ami companionship of
Avhite girls with negro bucks and
mulatto "shorts" and that if any
report or their names and their
liasons Avere sent north it Avould
be discredited, and radical (negro
and carpet-bag) volunteer affida
vits be forwarded 1at the barrel to
prove the young damsels martyrs
to rebel prejudice, or at least
Democratic slanders. Whatever
the common school arrangement
mi'ltt do if in the hands of good
and competent men, it actually
amounts to nothing more under
the Scott administration than a
heavy leak to the public treasury.
Many of the teachers in such of
the counties as I have visited are
native negroes, Avho positively can
not spell the simplest monosyl
able; and I have letters now in
my possession written or scraAvled
by some of these teachers, and
oilier h tters of different members
ot the South Carolinina Legisla
ture in Avhich there is scarcely a
word properly spelled.
As a picture of the times, and
the State under Radical robber re
construction, take the folloAving :
Near the line of the railway run
ning from Wilmington to Kings
ville, and only a 1'oav miles from
the village of Lynchburg, S. C., a
quiet and successful farmer lives
with his large family, depending
on his crop entirely for suppoit.
A few nights since an armed band
of twentydfvc negro savages at
tacked his premises, and in his
presence deliberately applied the
torch to liis large and well filled
barn and gin-house, reducing the
whole establishment, including S00
bushels of corn, to ashes. two
nights afterward, another farm in
the same neighborhood was visited
and burnt out in like manner.
What redress have the sufferers
by such outrages? If the ruffians
