Never before in any Presidential
election which ever occurred since
the formation of the United States
Government, lias any party ever
resorted to the appliances which
l the dantites are now using in or-
der to secure success. Proportion
j ate to the desperation of their cause,
is the ilagrant character of their
j efforts to avert tlTeir doom. The
Grant Administration acts as
though the effort of the people to
rid the inselvts of the inenbns of its
rottenness, was an act of treason
against te Government itself, and
it, therefore, uses unscrupulously
the funds, revenues and ofiees of
the Government in a most shamo-
fid manner in order to thwart the
will of the people and perpetuate
itself in power, in opposition and
defiance of such will. The history
of the republican government may
: be searched in vain for parallels to
