Secretary Bout well paid out of the United States Treasury the snug .little sum of seventy-five thousand dollars, to one Pickett, for what purported to be a portion of the archives of the Confederate Government. This sum was paid with the hope of finding documents which might be used in the Presi dential campaign for electioneering, but in this, in all probability, Bout well will come out of the specula tion as poorly as he did out of that infamous syndicate of Ids. lie has undoubtedly paid seventy-five thousand dollars for a first-class mare's nest0 The Xevv York limes, tlu chief organ of Grantism in the United States, has commenced the publication of a portion of these documents pertaining to the sup posed rebel plot to burn the leading cities in the United States, and although, from those documents it finds no warrant therefor, it at tempts to implicate Horace Greeley in the plot,; This shows the straits to which that party is driven. It unscrupulously uses the people's money to buy what are supposed by many to be forged and fictitious documents for base parry purposes, and when it fails to find anvthing therein of particular benefit to its waning cause, it coolly fabricates o charges, unsupported by any writ ten evidence whatever. In fact, the idea of the Times, in charging "Old Honesty" with being a par ticipant in any plot to burn north ern cities is ludicrous in the ex treme. Now all that, perhaps, is needed "to fire the Northern heart," is for Nast, fn. Harpers Weekly, to port raj- the old man, with a flaming torch in his nand, heading a band of those " indespcnsible and uncouth Irishmen and Catholic Priests with like torches, running about the streets in their work of arsen. If this will not suffice, we surest to the Kadical journals, that they charge Greeley with burning up Chicago last fall. They- can get just exactly as good proof that he was instrumental in burning Chi . ss cago as they can that he was in any supposed rebel plot tOj to bum the northern cities during I - s the war. Ami besides, Chicago was really burned and millions of I property was destroyed. Now, what right has this old city burner, Greeley, to compete for the Presi dency with Grant, who never burned anything else than his stomach with bad whisky and fine Havana cigars, smuggled into the Kxeeutive mansion without duty paid? The idea is preposterous. We, therefore, suggest to the Times and other Radical journals, that they fight the canvass out on that line, "if it takes all summer," seeing they have got nothing else in the world with which to stay the progress of Greele who- now appears to be t: firing" not only cities, but the whole Union with an enthusiasm unpalleled in the politi cal history of the country. -Cannot Forget. The Israelite, the leading Hebrew Organ in this country, is an earnest supporter of Mr. Greeley. It cannot forget that mean special order, which stigmatized the Jews "as a class." and banished them irotu a department which Grant wanted to monopolize whol ly to hiaiselt and his coRSociato thieve?. Stealing's Under Grant. Tlie New York Tribune of the 27th ult. contains a three column list, comprising nearly a hundred cases of robbery and defalcations by office-holders under Grant. Nor is it a complete list, either, as no man is officially reckoned a defaulter until suit has been brought against him by the Government for the recovery of the stolen mon ey. The names of the several par ties are given, but the amount in all cases is not exactly known, and will, undoubtedly, greatly exceed the figures given. These figures of frauds and robberies in the several departments put up as follows: Internal Revenue. Pensions Post -Oflice Treasury State Department Department of Justice Customs Navy War ;i.'5!)2.!)5S 278.001) 212.000 90.500 500 121.000 147.000 47 c; 88:; 445.100 Total Thus, in three $3,1114.217 years, three millions of dollars have been stolen from the Treasury. While the President is off at the sea-side, the plunderers are robbing from the people, and when caught, as some of them are, they are punished in the following manner, as told by the Tribune: Reed, defaulting Postmaster at Jackson ville. Fla.. was merely dismissed from of fice ; he is the fon ot a Governor; Edwins, convicted of embezzlement in the Treas ury Department, has been pardoned by the President alter a. few months' eonfine ment : Hulburd was re-appointed Con troller of t he Currency while he was on trial for taking bribes, and on conviction he was merely requested to resign ; Rrit ton. defaulting United Suites Marshal in Arkansas, al'ier defrauding the Govern ment of S121.O0O. was dismissed and rein stated ; Palfrey. Ogden "and Merrick, dis honest -Custom officers, were simply re moved. And so with others. A change in the Administration is not only politic, when viewed from ever" conceivable stand-point, but it is an absolute necessity, in order to prevent such wholesale plunder of the people's money. William S. Ciroesljeck Declares For Greeley. Hi: ITtEFERS ASXrRF.I) KKFOKM AM) RKCOXCU. I.l'noX TO A CONTINUANCE Ob' TUB PRESENT ADM INISTKATIOX. The Hon. Vv". S. Groesbeck has written the following letter, defining his position in the Presidential campaign. It is ad dressed to the lion. Amos G. Thompson and General Robert Brinkerhotf. chairmen of the State committees of Ohio : Gentlemen : I have your note, inviting me to prohle at a mass meeting of Demo crats and Liberal Republicans, which will be held at Coin tubus oti the 3t)th instant, to ratify the nominations best suited to heal all animosities and restore good-will between all sections of our country and all our people I differ in politics with Mr. Greeiey. who was not my choice, but he has been chosen, and with extraordin ary unamity. and is now before us as the oniy representative of roconci.iaiion. and is under pledges for important reform. His great ability, courage, and patriotism art: unquestioned, and it he is selected we have good reason to believe we will get reconciliation and reform. If lie is defeat ed, we already know we will not get them, but the Administration now closing will be repealed. It should not be repeated, nor should we make it an example for im i'atiou by the endorsement of a re-election. As a soldier General Grant has been just ly distinguished. His war services were great, and should be acknowledged by all. i hey have been, and ever generously ac knowledged, and we shall never forget them. Hut he is not suited for the Civil Magistracy, and we should allow his Ad ministration to close with the pending term. I intended to write at more length and more in detail, but what I have alref.dy said is a fair reply to your note. Thanking you for your flattering invita tion, I ai!t, very respectfully. W. S. Cito.sr.nc-i. V'uo Cakuieo The News. The Suns Washington correspondent, telling how Union secrets were made known to the Confederates, says : "When the rebellion was in its early stage, no less a person than General Thomas Jordan, of Cuban notoriety, but then a rebel officer made an arrangement wlih the noioriou Mrs. G reenhow. who was afterward arrested. whereby she was to forward to the head quarters of the Southern army such facts as would be important for them to know. Mrs. (J reenhow proceeded to becom iiti mate with the Hon. Henry Wilson, then chairman of the Military Committee. This she. confessedly accomplished, and the Hon. Henry was so thoroughly manipula ted that, every plan and projected move ment, was known by her. The design of the advance of the troops to the battle of Hull Rim was got by her from him before the fact, and forwarded to the rebel head quarters through the agcucv of Tom I Hewitt."' A new Republican paper is projected at lVj;,in Ci,y- :ike u hot- Tony. Dento Democrat. Let 'em come. But this item is news to the people of this sec tion. The first heard of this pro ject was from the Oreyonian, and we have been anxiously looking for the individual who has this "project" in view. A Change. The Dallas lltjnib Ilcein, heretofore a Grant orau, has taken down his name and hoist ed Greeley and Brown. 1. C. Sullivan, Esq., is to be the editor of the paper in the futuie. He will do effective service for the people's candidates. Air. S. has heretofore been a strong and consistent Re publican. State Cextual Committee. A call for a meeting of the Demo cratic State Centrat Committer is published to-day. The meeting i to take place at Portland on the 2d of September. Let there be a full representation present. The Difference. The old Satyr that expelled the traveler from his care, because he blowed on his benumbed fingers to warm them, and in his mulled wine to cool it, lor the reason that he would have nothing to do with a man that blowed hot and cold at the same time, would have much jrreater" occasion for anger at the Radical journalists of to-day than at the poor benumbed traveler, who, unfortunely for his own com fort, blowed once too often. The modern Radical newspaper writers are thorough adepts at this trick of blowing hot and cold with the same breath, and at no time have they showed their adeptibility at performing this trick at better ad vantage than during the present Presidential canvass. Addressing Democrats, they will say, " How can you vote for Greeley, tvho is now, as he always has been, a dyed-in-the-wool Republican?" And then, addressing Republicans, they will say, "How can you vote for Greeley,who has gone, body, boots, old hat, and all over to the Demo crats?" We have lately felt like asking them to be somewhat con sistent in their statements, but after reflecting that consistency is a thing they never followed, either in as sertions or exemplified in practice, we have quietly forborn. In re spect to such charges, however,they have infinitely the advantage over us. We cannot, with any show of truth whatever, say of Grant that he is either tiiis or that, for the people all understand, that, so far as political opinions are concerned, he is a mere nonentity. All that we can assert with truth (which Democratic papers rigidly adhere to) is, that Grant is a wooden-head, without any opinions whatever. Greeley holds opinions, and may therefore change them. Grant don't have any, and there fore can't change. That is the difference. ic Tidal Wave. The Greeley wave is sweeping over Wiseonr-in with irresistible force. The Milwaukee JV ir.9 says : From every di rection intelligence is being received of a general stampede from the Administra tion party, not merely of the rank and file, but of those who have been promin ent organizers and leaders even. Old Rock, t he banner Republican count of the Slate, is feeling the effect of the ad vancing tide, and the Republican ranks are becoming broken and decimated to an extent that is realty alarming to the office-holding Administration men. In the northwestern counties 1he acquisitions to the L'beral ranks are numbered by thous ands, while along the lake shore, north of Milwaukee, the stampede is equally great. A letter from Sheboygan county states that Gen. Conrad Krez. one of the alternate delegates to the Philadelphia Convention, has resigned his position on Guv. Washbnrne's staff and espoused ihe Liberal Democratic cause. Cuny Jnoge Gilman. Mayor El well ex-State Prise n Commissioner. Edward Megraw. and hun dreds of other Republicans, are out, for Greeley. The correspondent writes that it is no longer a defection, it is a stamp ede in the countv. which will trive a larg- or majority for Greeley, than it lias t ver ixiven for any candidate before. He says he does not know of a single German Re publican who will vote for Grant. News similar to the above is being received from Manitowoc and other Lake Shore counties. Wisconsin can be set down for Greeley by not less than 5.000 majority. - "Lliithusiasm of the While Republicans. Frcm the X. Y. Day-Hook. So far. all the enthusiasm is confined to the White or so-called Liberal Republi cans. The Grant or Black Republicans proper are as stolid and silent as their own chief, and seem incapable of enthu siasm or excitement of any kind. But the White Republicans, the crowd following the old white hat. as their banner, are all alive and ready for the fray. After all. it is the enthusiasm that tells, and in the present abnormal and anarchical condi tion of the American mind, anything be comes possible, and it is quite on the cards that Greeley will carry the day. Thing- cannot be worse, and may be bet tor ; indeed anything, monarch'. Czarism. wore better than Mongrelistn, propped up by bayonets under Grant. The Reward of Merit. The one "bright particular star'" of the War De partment appears to have been Mr. .John Potts, for thirteen years its chief cleik. but now gathered to his fathers. "He was a perfectly incorruptible man," says Secretary Belknap, in a biographical no tice of the deceased. '-He disbursed mil lions without an error.'" During the war he undertook delicate and important du ties, and always ably. Yet. says an ex change, he lived &nddiei a clerk. Fitted tor the highest stations and the irravesl i esjiousibilities ; trusted when others were suspected ; clean handed when some were plundering arid others deceiving the Depai itni'iii-as in the French arms busi ness this man of sterling integrity was fixed to h's clerkship during i te. and his only reward is an empty panegyric, now that he is gone. Stkange. It is remarkable to see what a bad man Horace Gree ley has become since lie has re ceived the nomination at Baltimore in the estimation of the Grantites. It is but a few week since he was regarded as the purest and best anions the Radicals. The Atchison (Kansas) Patr'iol says : There is more of a stampede going on in Kansas from the Republican party than any other State in the Union. There is no doubt that Southern Kansas will go for Greett y and Brown. If the northern j part of the State does half so well. Grant j ill be beaten by ten thousand majority."

Mr. Delano, Secretary of the Inte rior. Hon. Mr. Creswell. Postmaster General. General Baker. Commissioner of Pen sions. Hon. E. B. French. Second Auditor. Hon. Allen Rutherford, Third Auditor. Hon. J. Martin. Sixth Auditor. Besides a large number of clerks de tailed to do election duty in Maine. North Carolina, and Georgia. The Pennsylvania Republican Associa tion are occupying the room of the Com mittee on Mili!aryfTiirs in the Capitol, and. with several clerks detailed from the Departments, are sending out documents in favor of the re-election of General Grant. To further this object they are diligently engaged in -imitating' the names of Senators and Representatives, in order to -frank'' their documents through the United States Post. Oflice. Some of the documents franked. are the New York Times of June 12. containing the proceed' inirs of the Philadelphia Convention. i.bout 50.000 copies of them have been and are being sent every d iv ; and during the last week 50.000 copies of the Bingham ton. (N. Y.) Jimrruil have been folded and put in envelopes, and are now being franked. ATnong the franks most used are those of Hon. John A. Logan. Senator Harlan. J. C. Piatt. Z. Chandler, and many others. Most of these are franked by ladies. The person in charge of the document room of the Grant headquarters is a clerk in the Treasury Department, and who draws his pav monfhlv as such c'eik In the Land Office. Mr. Lines, acieik is daily franking documents to Ohio-; this seems to bo his fmly occupation, and in the Pension Oflice Mr. Harding is doing the same thing. A large number of clerks are writing editor ials (such as they are) for country sheets, which are sent under frank to all parts of the United States, and. last, though not least, (as we before noticed.)

This is u noble posi tion, and a step toward a much needed reform. A subsidized press is one of the woist curses that can fail upon a country: and when a leader of .i great party bold ly retnses to sanction the support of an unneeded organ in his own in'erest. and trusts his cause to the advocacy of such journals as an honest and intelli gent public will support, it shows that a new era in our political life has dawned. Preparing for the Fight. The Washington Patriot says : "A full meeting of the Democratic Congressional Executive Committee was held at the Cap itol. July 12th. lion. Samuel J.Randall, who was recently elected Chairman of the Pennsylvania Democratic State C inmit tee. resigned his position as Chairman of this Committee, and Gen. II. W. S!o cum. of New York was chosen to fill the vacancy. The Committee was visited during the session by Messrs. Casseriy. Heck, Marshall.tml other prominent Dem ocrats. A conference took place bit ween this Committee and that of the Liberal Republicans, headed by Senator Fenton. Preparations were made for the imme diate publication of documents for distri bution, and a resolution passed asking the Chairman of the Democratic Central Committee of each Slate and of each county in all the States to forward at once the names and Post oflk-o address o! the members of iheir respective commit tees, for the purpose of en aiding the Co:i gressional Committee to forward docu ments to them for distribution. On July '20ih. a second meeting of the Democratic Congressional Executive Com mittee was held at the Capitol. Present : General II. W. Siocum. M. C. Chairm-ui of the Executive Committee, ami Senator Ca-serly, Chairman of the Joint Congres sional Committee, with the working stuff of the Executive Committee. Arrange ments were considered and some of them concluded for the printing and circulation o! documents on the most extensive scale. Ax Imperfect Memory. The New York Kcpres proposes to be charitable totbe President and attribute to his im perfect memory the denial by him of the truth of the statement m ule by Senator Schurz. Imperfection o i memory is some times a convenient plea urged to escape the charge of deliberate falsehood But admitting the plea, will not the American people seriously pause before they again intrust, the high "oflice of President to one who first publicly denies what is subse quently proven to" be true. and h then pcr mitted'to escape the unpleasant dilemma in which he is placed by the charitable assumption that his memory is imperfect and not to be depended upon? It is about time tha' we should have a states man, and not an imbecile, at the bead of public affairs.

If' our Corvaliis friends expect to use her much they had better imjort more men. for the entile jxqmlation of that place can't "work her ' nfteen minutes. She is an elephant. We know the machine of old. A Palpable Fraud. From the facts communicated to us by Judge Hardy, wiio has juet returned from the Atlantic Stales, says the San Francis co llc-imiiwr. we are convinced that the announced result of the election in North Carolina was and is a palpable fraud. Through the central part of the State, the ballot-boxes were in the hands of white :-ien. and in those counties where the white men had control of the polls, the Conservatives were triumphant. Away from the railroads and telegrajdi lines in sparely settled counties. Ihe ballot boxes were under the control of negroes, and from those counties immense majorities were reported for the Republicans. To-a man of fair judgment the fraudu lent character of the result announced must be apjiarent when it is considered that in every county where the result was first made known the Conservatives gain ed largely, while in every county where the result was held back the Radicals made extraordinary gains. The Conser vatives announced their vote in -ill instan ces without delay. The Radicals waited to see bow many votes tbey would need. It was known in the office of the Mis souri licpubhcan n$ early as the 2d of Au gust that messengers had been sent, trom Raleigh to the western counties of North Carolina to endeavor to swefl the majori ties, and that Sena' or Pool refused to sanction the fraud. This manly honesty cost him the Legislature and secured us a United States Senator who will truly rep resent the voting jiopnlation of that State. If Pool had joined the swindlers we should not. have had the Legislature. As it is. the election will be contested, and as a conservative Legislature is to juiss ujion the frauds perpetrated, we have an assurance of a fair and honest deciioii. The evidence of fraud in Rockingham and two other counties will be conclusive and even honest Radicals will refuse to accept the returns from those counties. At the East the facts are understood, and the result is hailed with actual triumph. We retain our Congressional representa tion and gain a Senator of the United States. Well done, North Carolina!

The. late duty on cotton goods, now re duced about 10 per cent, was laid when cotton was selling at 70 cents per pound, and then amounted to a protection of 40 per cent. At present prices it is equiva lent to a protection of 150 per cent.

As yet.how ever.that movement has not been siicc-ss-ftil. and neither in the Constitution of the Union nor in that of New York is it laid flown that a man who professes any par ticular religious belief is thereby disqual ified frora election lo office. We presume that the Gram men will be q-uiteas-unsuccessful in proscribing any class of unbe lievers or believers as they have- been the application of their unconstitutional Ku-Klux and bayonet election laws. Francis Kernan is a sincere Catholic, and he is an able, high-minded, nprigfe' stmesman. who will administer with fidel ity, impartiality, and dignity any ofSce to which he may be assigned.
