Some of our Republican friends say.
that they are not aware of the fact, that
ieoeral Grant has a controversy with
Congress, in regard to the annexation
of San Domingo, and in fact all the
West India Islauds ; or that he has
-violated the law in any particular ; r
that he has sent ships of war to men
ace the Black Republic of tlati, so tha
the possession of tlij Republic of San
Domingo could b-j accomplished ; r
that he undertook to turn over tin
whole Iniitn d-'pirt njut to thi
military, and they desire some prool
of tlfe same.

to know the truth we j;!ve souu of the

Well knowing ul! the.e restriction and
obligation. Grunt a President of the
Uutied Sta'ev through on of hi mili
tary satrap, entered into tint iuft'u m
treaty with thit infinoH tt-urper,
why, without having before his eyes
the fe-irof God or a decent respect for
his fellow mtn, w is willing tu sell hi
owd soul for a mm of p ittae, and
his country and people to President
Grant for the sum of $1,530,000.
Agtiti he violated the Constitution of
the United States when he eut embass
adors toati Datuiugo to treat fr that
llepub ic and the Hay of Saunna
without the concurrence of Congiess.
The Constitution says :
' And he ih ill nominate, and by an I
with the Advice sno Consent of thy Sen
ate, tdiali appoiut eiub.issaJors.'
He violated the Very spirit of imr
laws when he turiifd over the Indian
department from the civil to lutlitiry
rule; who dNs ij.it know, that Grant
sent to Orejron and a 1 i-ther sections ol
the country officer of the army, sword
