the Department, ami lingered
around, not knowing wl at to
do. At last, made- desperate by
poverty and mortification, he de
termined to consult Douglas. II:s
reception was as cos-dial as though
he had been a brother instead of a
liitter opponent, and, emboldened
by the hearty welcome of "tin-
little giant," Dr. drew out the
paper .and offered it 'or inspection,
'with these words: "Do you think
the Secretary will accept such a
bond as thtif'r" Douglas looked
over Lincoln's and the thirty-nine
Cither names, smiled and said:
I don't believe
the Secretary ever saw such a bom
as that for such an of ice.'
spoke he lu-ld the paper in the
il.-uning gas until it was ccm -ttmed.
and added: " Ihing me another
blank to morrow and I wdl lix it. '
The blank was brought; Douglas
signed it himself, and procured the
signatures of two or three men of
his aeouaihl.uiK e ; the Secretary
a-ecep?cd it at once, and Dr.

The Man ou Horseback.
There was an undeniable senso
of fitness, says the Balirnoro
Gazette, in unrolling at the Phila
delphia Convention the pictorial
representation of "Tie? 3Ian on
Horseback." It was the outward
and visible sign of the military
will that has already manifested it'
s If, booted and spurred, in many of
the? States and on many occasions
j and of the representative chief of a
taction that has burthened the
country with debt, harrased and
oppressed it wit h a swarm of spies,
con uiptionists, .ami office-holders;
plundered, or wasted iu enormous
revenues; destroyed its ocean
commerce and made the adminis
tration of justice odious to tho
whole body of the people. Are
these charges too strong? Let us
cite facts in support of them;
Who rewarded the infamous
doings of Hohlen in North Carolina
with an official position; the ruffi
anism of Kirk with a South Ameri

of Senate with the mission to Peru ?
The 3Ian on Horseback.
V no sought to buy San Domin
go of Baez, for the benefit of spec

she interf-ied and was indignant
that the Senate should reject his
schemes and criticise his conduct?
The 31 an on Horseback.
Who revenged himself for his
defeat by causing 3Ir, Sumner, tho
most prominent Senatorial oppo
nent of the San Domingo swindle,
to be deposed from the chairman
ship of the Committee ou Foreign
Helatioiis, and put in his place Mr.
Cameron, whose ignorance of inter
national law makes him totally
unfit for the position?
The 31an on Horseback.
Who packed the Supreme Pencil
with partisan judges to reverse,
ihe legal tender decision, in the in
terest, not of the public at large,
but of wealthy corporations?

Who was it that held Congress
in session until it passed a law

of the gigantic speculation in gold

Who let Badeau and Leet loose

vices of Bedeau with the offife of
Consul General at London, and of
la et. by a letter of introduction
whic h turned over to him the most
lucrative appoint nn-nt iu the gift

toms? The 3Lan on Horseback.
Who dismissed Mr. Grinned, and
made the notorious "Torn Muf
phev," Collector of the customs at
New York, in spite of the frauds
perpetrated by him in his war con
tracts, and simply because of his
unsci-uptilou.-ness in packing politi
cal conventions, and of his infinite
ca pa oil v for doing any amount ot
dirty work that' his chief might
re luire ?
The Alan on Horseback.
Who made his brother-in-law,
