There came a sound of wailing
From a certain little band,
AVho four long weary years
Have tnioked and rul'd the land.
They watch M the bright flame kindle
That was to "cook their goose,"
And then set up a howling
Like hungry wolves let loose.
They saw the Greeley Column
Marching proudly along ;
They heard its steady foot tramp,
"And its grand triumphal song.
And by its strength and greatness
Knew their exodus was nigh ;
Then back upon their flesh pots,
They cast a longing eye.
Then spake each to the other,
Let us go upon the plan
Of Uraef in Egypt,
And borrow all we can.
For the Jordan we must travel
Will be very hard we know;
We have had our milk and honey,
But we will not empty go.
Civil Service Reform.
The following correspondence,
read by Senator Schurz in his great
speech at St. Louis, deserves the
largest possible publicity. It ex
plains itself and sweeps clean away
the filmy questionings and objec
tions which have cobwebbed the
brains of many excellent people
who do not know Mr. Greeley so
well as they will be likely to know
him four years hence. So thinks
the Golden A rie. Here are the
cart, senunz's letter.
St. Louis, Mo.,June 2(5,1872.
)i;.u: Sir: As you are undoubt
edly aware, your opponents in the
press charge that you are m contact
vith and under the influence of
politicians of doubtful character;
that, if you are elected President,
such men would be likely to be
appointed to influential offices and
that, therefore, the cause of reform,
has nothing to hope from you. In
your letter of acceptance you prom
ise a thorough reform of the civil
service in general terms. The
question, how the problem of civil
service reform presents itself to
your mind is one of great interest;
and I would suggest, if it be con
sistent with your views of propriety,
that you give me such explanations
as will put your intention in this
respect in a clear light. Truly
yours, C Sciiukz.
Hon. Horace Greeley.
MR. Gin-.KLKY'S REPLY.
New York, July 8, 1872.
My Dk.vi: Sin: Yours of the
2Gth ult. only reached me three
days ago. 1 respond as promptly
as I may. I pass over the allusion
to my political associates, barely
remarking that an imputation so
vague can never be specifically
repelled. Charity is a virtue rarely
exemplified in politics; and most
men live and die in the undoubting
conviction that their political op
ponents arc the greatest scoundrels
unhung. I trust that my age and
your experience have lifted us
above such prejudice, enabling us
to realize that the many sincerely
desire the greatest public good,
even when most mistaken in their
choice ot means, l know who my
friends are better than my tra
ducers do, and fear no scrutiny as
to the integrity or patriotism of
any to whom I may give my confi
dence. And should any such ever
and good. As to the machinery
of boards of examiners, etc., where
by the details of civil-service reform
are to be matured and perfected, I
defer to the judgment of Congress
unperverted by the adulterous
commerce in legislation and ap
pointments, which have already
exposed and reprehended. Lrp to
this time our experience of the do
ings of boards in this direction has
not been encouraging; and this, I
am confident, is not the fault of the
gentlemen who have tried to serve
the public as Commissioners. In
so far as they may have failed, the
cause of their ill success must be
extrinsic. Had they, been accorded
a fairer field, I am sure they would
have wrought a better purpose. A
thinker has observed that the spirit
in which we work is the chief mat-
ter; and we can never achieve
civil-service reform until the inter
ests which demand shall be more
potent in our public counsels than
those which resist even while
seeming to favor it. That this con
summation is not distant, I fervent
ly trust; meantime thanking you
for your earnest and effective
labors to this end, I remain yours,
I Ioeace G reelev.

U. S. Grant, President of the United
States, arrived in Utica yesterday, lie
came by the Erie Railway to Einghamton.
and thence bv the Delaware. Lackawanna
and Western Railroad to L tiea. Our
rentiers will wonder why the President
l.i-i.fpi-rnd to hazard his life on the Erie
Railway, inasmuch as lie is accustomed
to ride'in palace cars over first-class roads
like the New-York Central. The reason
is as follows: Grant was dead-headed
over the Erie. He has to pay fare over
the Central and ILidson River roai, and
Uhsses isn't in the habit of paying any
thing when he can help it.
It will be renumbered that Grant at
tended !li3 funeral ot the late Gen. Thom
as at Troy. April 8, 1870. lie returned
to New York in a special car via the Hud
son River Railroad. Shortly before the
tr:iin nrfivod at Ponghkeepio. the con
ductor went into the car for the purpose
of collecting fare from the President and
part v. He was met at the door by the
Dent, who gruffly asked him -what lie
wanted. The condua'or replied that he
wanted the fare of the parly. Dent de
clared that the Piesident was insulted by
such a request as be was not in the habit
of paying fares on railroads. He declar
ed that t'he President and party were in
sulted by the conductor, and that they
would not pay one cent. Then, replied
the conductor. I shall cut your car oil' at
Poughkeepsie and leave it on the branch.
Dent saw the conductor was in earnest,
and proposed to compromise matters by
tclei'ranhing to fouimouore YanderbiH.
The'condrtci.-r assented to his proposition.
In a few mumeiKA the anver retunuu.
Collect fare from the whole party.
Pent, payed and swore the President
should m'ver travel a mile over the Hud
sou River and New York Central. Short
ly after lhi Euuiwell ordered a tax of
S too. 000 to be collected from the Central.
This was simply a mean revenge. The
money has not yet been paid, and may
never be. So now Grant came to L'tica
on a couple of railroads on which he
could get a pass. Commodore Yander
bi'.t probably feels very bad about it, as
be has such a high opinion of Grant. It
may be interesting to learn that the Com
modore and his whole family will vote
against Grant and will give their immense
influence to Horace Greelev.

problem of civil service reform is
rendered difficult by a misalliance
between the Executive and the
Legislative brandies of our Federal
Government. Those members of
Congress who favor the Adminis
tration habitually claim and are
accorded a virtual monopoly of the
Federal offices in their respective
States or districts, dictating ap
pointments or removals as inteiest
or caprice may suggest. The Pres
ident appoints at their bidding;
thev legislate in subserviency to
his will, often in opposition to their
own convictions. Unless all history

Executive with Legislative respon
sibiities and functions could not
fail to distemper and corrupt the
body politic. I hold that the eligi
bility of our Presidents to re-election
is the main source of this
corruption. A President should
be above the hope of future favor,
the fear of alienating powerful
ambitious partisan. He should be
the ollicial chief, not of a party,
but of the Kepublic. He should
dread nothing but the accusing
voice of history and the inexorabe
judgment of God. lie should fully
realize and never forget that Con
gress in its own sphere is paramount
and nowise amenable to his super
vision, and that the heartiest good
will to his Administration is per
fectly compatible with the most
pointed dissent from his inculca
tions on the very grayest questions
in finance or political economy.
"It is the first step that costs."
Let it be settled that a President
is not to be re-elected while in office
and civil service reform is no longer
difficult. He will need no organs,
no subsidized defenders. He will
naturally select his chief counselors
from among the wisest of his emi-nr-iit
New York World Correspondence.
On my way to Brocck I stop
ped at one of those little dairies
where the celebrated Dutch cheese
is made. A description may not
be inappropriate here. The cows
were nearly all in the fields, or, I
should sa-, the swamps, surround
ing the low brick dwelling on the
farm. They were blanketed with
great care, as we blanket horses in
America, and they really presented
a droll sight. On the housewife be
ing made acquainted with the ob
ject of my visit she expressed great
willingness to show me over her
house. First of all I was shown
the "company-rooms" upstairs,
where I inspected some miraculous
china and brass ware ranged upon
the spotless wooden mantle-pieces.
In one corner a high posted bed
stead held an honorable place,
stacked nearly to the ceiling with
the fattest of feather beds, the
cleanest and finest of linen, and
the most extraordinary of hand
worked valences, and' strangest of
all, there was a short ladder at the
side to mount into this most sump
tuous of couches.
In another part was the ordin

hostess quickly unbuttoned a
fastening apparently m the wall,
which exposed a crib very much
like a ship's berth, or cupboard
where the family packed them
selves away in winter much like
their own herring in boxes and
(for aught I know) remaining there
dormant until spring.
Put I was destined to have othei
surprises. Down stairs I found
the whole family assembled in one
apartment. This M as floored with
brick. On a platform raised about
a foot from the ground was a era
die (with a little chubby Dutch
baby m it), a table at which an ol
Hollander sat smoking and sipping
something which mio-ht, have been

cheeked lass vigorously scouring

was the stable where the family

Value of A Maiden's Heart
What is the worth of a maiden's
heart? This question has come to
be decided by cool unsentimental
experts. The daughter of a poor
widow in Perlin, Germany, died of
heart disease, and the young phy
sician who attended her during her
illness, persuaded her mother, in
the interest of science, to give him
the poor girl's heart. After the
lapse of some time the doctor asked
the widow for an honorarium of
eight thaler?, fifteen silver gros

From the San Erancisco Examiner.
An original secession morning
contemporary, whose columns at
one time openly advocated a "peace
ful separation," and whose political
acrobatic performances remind one
more of an elephant attempting to
dance a tight-rope than anything
else we can imagine, has recently
published along string of so-called
Confederate archives, in which
"treason, strategem and spoils,"
and a devastation of "fire, sword
and brimstone" are said to have
come to light, and been threatened
against the peaceful inhabitants
and cities of the Xorth during the
late rebellion. As if to add venom
to this newly-discovered shaft, an
attempt is made to implicate the
name of Horace Greeley in this
plan of conspiracy. Would it not
have been more wise, if not prudent,
to have first established the proof
of the authenticity of the docu
ments in question, and the manner
in which and from whom they
were obtained, before launching
out on the dangerous experiment
of another political somer-saultV
The old adage of the "glass
louse," or the common though
lomewhat inelegant expression of
the "pot and kettle," may perhaps
lave come within the reading of
the conductors of the sheet referred
to, and we would ask if it ever oc-
urred to them in their wisdom, m
this "mare's nest," whether there
were not atrocities (it the tlead is
sues of the past must be appealed
to to save a sinking cause), not of
intention only, but of commission,
which not only rivalled but fa:
excelled in baseness even these fab
ulous party treasures which it has
been found necessary, after twelve
years of burial, to unearth in order
to support a rotten administration V
Did the vandalism ot the burning
of the town of Columbia, after its
surrender and occupation, by tne
Lnionarmy the pillaging vt the
banks and private houses, and the
wanton destruction of public build

muddy intellects of these gentle
men?" Did the needless and inhu
man devastation of a tract of coun

hundred long, with no enemy to
dispute the march save helpless
women and infirm old men, and
the plunder and destruction com
mitted by a drunken horde in the
celebrated march to the sen, cross
their convenient memories? Did
the fiendish attempt to permanently
destroy the harbor of Charleston
in order to gratify the old abolition
spite, against a gallant State and
city, the names of many of whose
sons sparkle among the brightest
gems in the history of our country,
present itself to the darkened vision
of their forgetful imagination?
Did the thieving achievements of
an unsuccessful hero, the immortal
ity of whose fame as the great
"spoon" politician of the ninetecth
century, occur to them ? In short,
(for tins revival of the past is not
our seeking), did a thousand atro
cities, not authorized of war, and
tens of thousands of acts of inhu
man cowardice not to mention
the satnralia of public plunder
which was openly carried on, cheer
and satisfy the pure hearts and
honest purposes of those, who now

seem as if, in this latter regard, the
charity of then opponents to the
personal vices of their own chief,
had been lost upon them, and that
magnanimity according to their

by self-interest. It is scarcely

Will .Sweep the Country.
The Hartford Time, ? commenting
upon Greeley's nomination says:
This remarkable result has been
reached with a degree of unanimity
not less remarkable. It is the true
voice of the people. The Conven
tion and the politicians only bow
to the popular will. A Democratic
National Convention nominate for
the Presidency a man who has
been conspicuous as a leader of the
opponents of the Democratic party,
but who now meets them on a
common ground of popular union
against the most lawless, centraliz
ing, and corrupt Administration
which our country has ever known.
It is the expression of the purest
and most unselfish patriotism. The
Democracy sacrifice their party-
feelings on the altar of their county,
and unite with the Liberal liepub
licans in the patriotic purpose to
hurl from the seats of power the
corrupt, weak, and bad men who
have so shamefully abused then
high trusts and overthrow the
political party who persist in keep
ing in office the robbers the cor-
ruptionists, the plunderers of the
people. Casting aside the dead
issues of the past, they manfully
face the future, confident and re
solved in the high purpose "to do
their duty " in the words of Sena

their country, their God, and their
fellowmen." The whole country

co-operating in one direction, and
that is towards the permanent dis
junction of the Church from poli
tics. Bismarck is not satisfied
perhaps, and very illogically spurs
the willing beast by making war
upon the Jesuits. But the rapid
lenationauzat'on ot the Anglican
Church is one of the most conspic
uous events of modern history :
uid it is notorious that Rome,
could she secure protection and
get back her territory, would con
sent to accept (by the convenient
irocess ol silence) all the changes
that reform and revolution have
wrought in the Church of Austria
France, Spain, Itally, and Spanish
In the face of all this progress,
the Methodist Church, under its
present auspices and managers
md as interpreted by bimpson,
Newman Eddy, and that sort of
light, has become decidedly reac
tionary, dust as it sets the doc
trine of sanctification against the
doctrine of infalibility, so it seizes
upon party with the unmistakable
design ot establishing hierarchy
It combats a pretended danger o
Jesuitism with a real danger o
intolerence. It raises a cry o
alarm about Catholicism in the
schools, and manipulates votes in
secret by priestly circulars an
in 7K'TroVnion leagues. It shud
ders and arms itself against Papal
encyclicals, and patronizes Jlar
pcr's AI'Kfeizine and Jftrjter
Weekly. Jt is horrified when Pio
Xono invokes the spiritual forces
against Bismarck, and cooly makes
Ulysses S. Grant its stalking-horse

The Cincinnati Gazette says that

Vice-President, and by an accident
succeed to the Presidency, ha,
