in his mc.jsae to Congrc has taken

0 battles in Cuba have never exceeded
in ma gnitudo well developed skir
mishes, and inasmuch as the insur
gents have no civil government, nor
courts of justice, nor executive, nor
port in which their Hag is Hying, it
becomes impossible for a govern
ment, not wishing to. act the part of
Aesop's" wolf, to recognize their bel
ligerent rights. Such noncommittal
language of course makes our
President tho foot -ball of both
o Cubans and Spaniards.
The former are disgusted with hi3

Tho Democrats in Washington
have passed resolutions with a view
we suppose to counteract tho effect
of Grant's message, to the eil'ect
that the free schools system cf the
United States is tho bright star in
the galaxy of tho repivblie, and on
its maintenance and perpetuity de
pends; the present and future of the
- American people; that tho Dem
ocratic party always has at all
times resisted, and hereafter 'will
resist, any and all attempts looking
to the division of Iho public school
fund, no matter for what purpose;
that the Democratic party is now.
and always will be, in favor of free

ever be divided between religious

In less than a week tho Forty-
Fourth Congress will convene for
the first time. QIt will be of more
than usual importance, and attract
greater attention than have some of
its predecessors, for the reason,
that for the first time since 1SG0, the
Democratic minority has developed
into a majority, and also becanso it
is authoritatively announced that
that 2artj will make use of its new

Washington, Dec. 10. Tho Cab
inet session to-day was of unusual
length, and the attention of the
President and Cabinet officers was
directed almost wholly to the subject
of whisky fraud trials in St Louis.
Col. James O. Broadhead, a Dem
ocrat and eminent lawyer of St.
Louis, has been employed as Assist
ant U. S. Attorney to prosecute the
whisky frauds in that city, in place
of ex-Senator Henderson, who took
advantage of his position to releive
his mind of an old grudge against
the President, by a very unprofes
sional assanlt.on his character. The
Cabinet stand together in censure
of Gen." Henderson's conduct in tho
Avery case in this respect.
The Agricultural Reports for
November indicate that the corn
crop of 1872 was one of the largest
ever grown in the country. It is
probably equal to the very large crop
of 1870 and 1872. It is at least ono
forth greater than the crop of 1874,
and about one-third larger than tho
crop of 18G9. Every section of the
Union reports some increase.
Ths indictment against General
Babcock by tho grand jury .at St.
Louis has been officially eommunie ;t
ed to the Attorney-General. Special
Counsel Henderson has telegraphed
to the Attorney-General that a sworn
statement of the remarks ho made on
the Avery trial has been forwarded
to the department of justice.
St. Louts, Dec. 11. District
Attorney Dyer has appointed Col.
Jps. O. Broadhead, one of the lead
ing lawyers of the St. Louis bar, to
fill tho position made vacant by the
dismissal of" Gen. Henderson, and
he has accepted, and will attend to

profits than ever before. That's the
idea. "Keep down expenses," as
Stephen Girard said, "and money
will make itself."
President Grant's Secretary, Gen.
Babcock, has been indicted at St.
Louis for suspected connection with
the crooked whiskey frauds. It is no
more than just to say that this gen
tleman asked tho investigation him
self, and that ho and his friends
"pooh pooh" tho charge.
The President's message, which
wo give in full to our readers in this
issue, we think will well repay a
