to 'co operate with th'j Xortiiem wing
in nr.y device that jtiay pos.sihly c fleet
the overthrow of a ha!-d loyal admin
islratiun. The main point of union be
tween them is, at all events, to prevent
the rc-nornination of President Grunt;
tmt if that cannot, he d"ne, then fo de
feat his eleetion if possible by iiiduein
certain disaifected Republicans to hiio

jMr. Trumbull, Jlr. Sumner, or some
other prondtieiit Uitmber of the domi
nant party, by the lending asunder of
which there is the only chance of suc
cess. This is hih praise for the Pres
ident that he has so admini.-tered the
liffairs of the country as to make himself
more distasteful to the rebel and uejjro
atirip; chrucitt?, Nt-rihand South, than
ony JJepublican yet artfully sucsted
is a rival candidate. T'in fact is im
yncnsely in his favor, and it is of far
reaching significance. Whatever may
have been his mistakes or short-comings,
tJip recent State elections prove that his
general policy has been in accordance
with the views cf an overwhelming pop
ular majority ; a ud so acceptable, in
deed, as to make it questionable with
leading Democrats, whether it will not
b6 extreme for the Democratic party to
attempt any distinct organized resist
ance at the next Presidential campaign.
Of the twenty-two States that have
nade their annual trial of political
strength, fifteen are Kepubhcan and
seven Democratic j tho former casting
ono hundred and seventy-one electoral
votes, the latter fifty-one, including Now
Hampshire and New Jersey, which in
all probability will change sides next
year, thus reducing tho number to thir
ty-nine. No such cheering results could
have been obtained, if our national af
fair had not been satisfactorily managed,
as a whole ; and it probably means that
the people are resolved to extend to
President Grant a second term in office.
For any Republicans, therefore, to con
spire against him cannot bring victory
to their standard, and can only end in
subserving the factious purposes of that
party whose triumph is to be dreaded
by every friend of freedom and human
ity. ".Take any shape but that "
It is idle to say that there are scores of
men in the Republican ranks who are
better fitted for the Presidency than the
present incumbent. No doubt there are
hundreds who place this modest esli-
mate upon themselves. Rut if any
one asserts that there is a single other
who, put in nomination iusdead of
Giant, would poll as largo a popular
vote, and so insure the continued as
condency of Republican ru'e, let him
marshal and present his facts, it he can
to sustain his declaration. I Vr.id ven
ture, in this or that locality, some one
might obtain even a larger .support ; but
surveying the whole, country, ami reek-
otiitig up the sum total of public sent',
metit, what oiher man, houwer ii i t"t i
or tuci itorintis, can reasonably hope to

I have more than once taken occasion
to testify strongly againt the; t-xtraordi -n
iry course Pre-ident (irant has pur
sued touching the annexation of Sm
Domingo, and. as T think, the unwar
rantable use he has made of; the navy
to consummate his scheme. ; Doubtless,
he deems himself fully justified iu what
he has done; doubtless, ho con-idtrs
the acqui-ition to l.'e ieMred on national
grounds. Rut, certainly, the general
feeling is that nothing could be more
ill-judged or more uncalled for ; so
clearly is this peiceived by the Presi
dent himself that iti exact accordance
with the avowal made in his inaugural
message, he shows his readiness fo com-p-y
with the will of the people,
in any ease. Accordingly, iu his recent
annual messige to Congress there is not
a line nor a syllable in reference to his
favorite project.
On the whole, rn pertaining to the
best interests of the country, and es
pecially to the preservation of peace at
home and abroad, I think it may be
fairly claimed that no administration
has excelled his own since the days of
Washington. Toward our hunted and
perishing Indian tribes how humane
and praiseworthy is th? policy he is en
deavoring to enforce ! It will ever re
dound to his credit, though it has m ole
him many enemies, particularly among
those who are anxious to exterminate
the race for iiialioian'; and se'fbdi ends
Rut it Ins also made him many f riends
whose approval any man may covet.
Iu a-peaceful and e joitablc adjust
ment of the grave difficulties existing
between Kogland and the United Siates,
by the approval of a Commission of In
ternational Arbitration, what civilian in
in the Presidential office could have
shown more interest or acted with more
alacrity ? As charity covcrcth a multi
tude of sins, so this honorable method
of avoiding a bloody, devastating and
fruitless war, and setting an example to
be imitated by all the nations of the
earth, will constitute the crowning glory
of his administration as the Emanci
pation Act did that of Abraham Lin
coln covering many defects and blun
ders. It is an event to call forth anew-
the gong of the ang?ls as sung at tho
advent of the Prince of Peace, And
how easily it might have been baffled
on his parti as assuredly it would
have been, had an ambitious military
spirit infhmed him to measure weapons
with a powerful foe. Aside from the
question of San Domingo, no one in the
hi"h position he occupies has ever shown
less desire for military display, less in
difference to military glory, or a more
earnest desire to avoid as far as practi
cable, all occasion for blojdly quirrel,
than President Grant. His wishes and
aims have been eminently peaceful
throughout j and where force has been
resorted too, it has been for protection
and defense, as in case of the red men
of the West, and tho freedmen of tho
South. '
It may suit the taste of tho degene
rate grandson of the revered John
Q'lincy Adams to proclaim that he re
gards the present xVdministration "as a
national calamity, because it is mean in
character, sordid in tone, and ignorant
corrupt end arbitrary ; because it is
doing more to permanently disunite the
States than the government of Jeffer
son ever did ; and because its chief con
ceives that there is no means f.r a free
government by a military force." It
may gratify his personal self importance
oracularly to predict that ''four years
more of such education, family patron
age and martial law will so blind the
keen sen-ibtlitios of popular liberty that
our ignoble incubus might well remain
a fixture.

tho worst passions of an ignorant

The 1 1 1 1 .-1 device is to insist onlv
upon one term in the Pre-i-h-u'ial of
fice, iu order to put. a stop to political
corruption ;md oflV-ial t-r.il ry ! This
has a virtuosi .u-p et; but il means
nothing more than turning out Grant,
leaving hU suecessful rival and the
paity ( leering h'm to Jin 1 plenty of rea
son.5 hereaf:er why a second term is em
inently desirable. A disinterested prop
osition to amend the Constitution of
the Un'tcd States, so tis to allow no one
to occupy the Pre.-idi ntial ' chair more
than four veers, will deserve grave con
sideration ; but it is fo be que'io:.ed
whether the American people will ever
so tie their hands a.d stulttfy tfieir
judgments as to tnake it unconstitutional
for them to choose the one. tliey d'-em
the best to till the highest oiliee in
their gift. Is it not a r: flection alike
uf.'.u tP.fi r patriotistn to say that they
may not. be trusted to elect as oft-ui as
they will, whomsoever they will to act
as their Chief Magistrate '! If he abuses
his tru-t, or j. roves hiuw'f unqualified
for the station, the remidy is iu their
bauds. This freedom they have en
joyed and exercised- s at isfactory to
themselves at least, from the formation
id' the Federal Government till now,
and it is hardly to be presumed that
they will consent to any abridgment of
it. Unquestionably they will easily de
tect the present "one term" outcry as
a mere dodge to meet a faction exi
An ingenious Georgian has invented
a patent " rail-splitter," by which nn
immense pine log can b? riven in a very
brief time. A small iron cylinder, or
tube, about a half inch in diameter and
six inches in length, in two equal seg
ments fitting closely together, is insert
ed into an oifice made with a common
auger in tho center of the fallen leg
This is filled with powder by means of a
slender tube surmounted with a funnel,
the charge amounting to an ordirary
musket load. A fuse is then attached
and fired, and the toughest log is split
like an acorn. The Georgians regard
it as a grand labor saving machine in
these days when the laboring classes of
the South have their time almost wholly
engrossed by politics.
Two late disbursing officers at Wash
ingtoo, have just been sentenced for de
falcations :jKcndig, of the Patent OfBco,
to a fine of 814,000 and two years im
prisonment;; Marden, of the Treasurer's
office, to $2,000 fine and a years impris
onment. Tho fine in each caso is tlu
amount embezzled.

The following good story is taken
from the Fanner of the 23 inst.
"The family of a good, honest Dutch
man out west having frequent occasion
to employ the services of a neighboring
physician, the head of the family be

one of those mixtures of the farmer,
stock -raiser and doctor, often preach

in the remoto rural districts of the
Western States; but who paid but little
attention to his ! stock, which told against
his pecuniary interests, while the herds

well housed yvas iu very line conditio!) .
The doe'ov was not slow to observe the
difference, and suggested to tho farmer
lhat he thought something was tho mat

to rule over and tell him what to do
for them. The farmer named a day
when h'j would to ike the visit, and when
the d iv came he was oro m.ilv on hand.

ly after the declaration of war against
Prussia proposals were made to the
Emperor Napoleon, by an inventor, for
"annihilating" the Prussians on moder
ate terms. An immense uet of ine
wire, capable of enveloping an entire
army corps," with solid cannon balls at
tached to the corners to keep it steady,
was to have been fired at the foo from
a monster mortar provided for that
purpose. The wire-net would accord
ing to the intentions of the inventor,
have fallen on the body of troops marked
out for destruction or capture; when,
seeing the enemy entangled in its
meshes, tho French would havo noth
ing to do but march up to them and
disarm them, or in caso of resistance
put them to death. Tho rejection of
this new military machine was attribu
ted by tho inventor to " treachery" on
the part of tho chiefs who declined to
employ it.
