President Hayes Cabinet, complete, is compos
ed as follows: .
Secretary of State, Win. M. Erarts, of Kew
Secretary of tbe Treasury, Jobu Sherman, of
"Secretary of War. George W. McCrary, of
Secretary of the N'avr, Richard W. Thompson,
Attorney-General, Charles Dereru, of 'Jlassa
Postmaster-General, Darid M. Key, of Tennes
see. Secretary of the Interior, Call Schuri, of Mis
souri. While the Cabinet is not such as many Repub
licans would prefer, on strict party grounds, yet
it is an able cne, and perhaps as judicious as
could bar been selected, under the circum
stances. There was a prospect of much opposi
tion to their confirmation, on the pait of Repub
lican leaders in tbe Senate, but they were all
confirmed almost unanimously, except Sherman,
whom the Democratic So Da tors voted against,
because of his report in tbe Louisiana case.
Republicans who are disposed to find fault
with some of the appointments, should remem
ber that the Republican party is not powerful to
do aa it chooses, as it could do a few yean ago.
From on cause and another, it has lost strength
here and there, until it has succeeded in electing
a President by tbe closest share erer before
known, and in a manner tbat affords an excuse
for tbe disappointed and fanlt-finding to cry
fraud. It ranst do something to conciliate the
disappointed, and to recruit its strength, or its
C2rerr is ended.
Tbe Radicals of ibn party, and those who hare
stood by it under all circumstances, are certaiuly
liberally represented by Sherman, McCrary and
There has been a great loss of streugth in New
England and Kew York, on tbe issue of Civil
Serrice Reform, and thousands of conservative
Repnblicacs have assumed au independent posi
tion, holding themsehes free to act with Repub
licans or Democrats, whichever should uumiuate
candidates tbat suited tbrm best. From this
cause, the Republicaus have lost New York, and
tv-o j ears ago they virtually lust Massachusetts.
Tbe appointments of Erarts aud Deens will be
satisfactory to this class, and re-nuite them with
Another serious loss to the Republicans has
been the defection of a large body of Germans,
who gave tbe party much of its origiual strength,
and who naturally belong to the party. The
loss of this vote has seriously crippled the party.
Mr. Schuri is a representative of this element,
aud of their views.
In tbe South, tbe white population has been
almost unanimously opposed to tbe Republican
party. A large body of the Southern people,
chiefly embracing the old Whigs, have never bad
any love for tbe Democratic party, and bave on
ly been operating with it, of late years,
from the force of circumstances. Whenever they
have ground upon which they can sustain them
selves in opposition to the Democracy, there is
good reason to believe they will cut loose from
them. Gen. Key is one of this class having
been an East Tennessee Whig, prior to the re
bellion. Tha great difficulty with parties is, that when
portions of the members become discontented
' with their policy and acts. Instead ortempering
their policy and endeavoring to cenciliate the
dissatisfied, they proceed to denounce tbem as
traitors, and give them a kick to help tbem out.
This course ruined the Democratic party. It
has almost bad tbe same effect upon tbe Repub
lican party, bnt the lost gronnd may yet be re
trieved. There seems to exist a fear that Hayes con
templates abandoning the Republican contest
ants in Louisiana and South Caroline. He has
a difficult and delicate task before him, aud one
tbat Grant gladly passed over to him. It is to
be hoped that be will do Justice; bnt whatever
he does, will doubtless be by the counsel of able
H" Last Saturday evening, John W. Wilson,
formerly connected with tbe Topeka Times, met
Swayze, of the Blade, on tbe street, and proceed
ed to give him a terrible beating, mashing bim
up generally, and knocking his teeth out. The
oflenea was an item in tbe Stale, abusing Wilson.
This thing had been going on for a long time,
even since Wilsou's connection with the Timet
ceased. We cannot endorse this manner of re
venge; but if it it was ever deserved by any
dan, Swayze was entitled tn it. It seems to
bavo been about tbe only available means of de
fetice against him. We bave often nondrred
tbat he bad not got it long ago. No man or wo
man is nccure, if he takes a dislike to them, or
they refuse to be black-mailod by bim. Private
character and the privacy of home afford no
security against his assaults. Day after day, be
will pour ont his filth and abuse upon them, re
gardless of gr,.wx, or condition. As an evidence
of tbe estimate in which he is held in that city,
it is said that many persons were standing by,
and not oue interposed in bis behalf; but many
offend to pay any fine tbat might be imposed
EFTbe papers arc couiplimeutingJ.S. Gilmore,
of tbe Fiedouia Citizen, for bis efficient work in
tbe Legislature in behalf of justice aud right to
ward tbe printing fraternity. He made good
member in every respect, and has reason to be
proud of bis first Legislative record. But the
House, at almost every session, coutaius 'a ma
jority of galoots who seem to like nothing better
than a slash at printers' wages; and perhaps
those most active in this business, are those who
bave Lad tbe most assistance from printers in
securing an election to a positiou for which they
were unfit. The Senate, on the other haud, us
ually contains a majority of men who know what
is right and just, aud act in accordance with
that knowledge. Messrs. Long and Tracy, mem
bers of tbe House from tbe First and Second
Districts, in this Conty, did not belong to the
galoot crowd above referred to. But when a ma
jority of a Legislature is composed of wild Texas
cattle, the fair and sensible men are powerless,
and unjustly bave to bear a portion of tbe blame
for tbe incompetence and folly of tbe majority.
ty Leaveaworth is again complaining be
cause there was nobody in Congress to labor for
an appropriation for bnilding a Uunited States
Court lions and Post-office in tbat city. When
ever Leavenworth has a candidate for Congress
man or Senator, the most bitter and violent op
position to biro, comes from Leavenworth men
who claim to be leaders of publie opinion. Four
different times, in the last twelve years, Leav
enworth has lost a United State Senator because
of personal opposition and hatred to the candi
dates; and yet she complains that she has no
one to represent ber interests.

Thk Mystery Explained. The selection, of
tbe Secretary of tbe Nary from Indiana has oc
casioned much comment, and it pnzzlrs most
persons to understand what a citizen of that sec
tion of the country is supposed to know about
naval affairs. They do not .-teem to be aware
that Indiana is one of the greatest maritime
States, and that Dick Thompson has had rare
opportunity of becoming acquainted with naval
science. He ha rmided at Terra Halite for ma
ny years, on the banks of tbe Wabash. Tbi

Take a modern boy liviug near a uatigable
stream, and, although he may never have trav

compelled to pass through such scenes aa war

When th rebellion collapsed, a good many of

ClNTENMAL EXHIBITION- HISTORY. We have
received a copy of the History of the Centennial
Exhibition, announced as being in press, some
weeks since. It is written by James D. MeCabe,
and embraces a concise history of the origin aud
success of the Exhibition, and biographies of the
leading members of the Centennial Commission.
It contains 91S pages, and is illustrated with
nearly 400 engravings of buildings, exhibits and
scenes in tbe great Exhibition. The book will
not be for sale in tbe book-stores, but will be
sold only by subscription. Agents are wanted
in every County in the Uuited States.

tSr" We can't sometimes always nnderstaund
Web. Wilder, of the St. Joseph BrraXi. If we
were correctly informed, he withdrew from the
Fort Scott Monitor, in 1672, because he received
an intimation that the paper was going to Gree
leyize; yet now, when a man is elected to office
who Grecleyized at tbat time, Webb, makes es
pecial rejoicing over tbe fact tbat the person so
favored was a supporter of Greeley. We can see
cause for rejoicing when one of these stray sheep
gets back into tbe fold, but we fail to see either
merit or wisdom in having gone off ou that wild
EP Senator Plumb has started ont right. He
voted for tbe admission of Kellogg as a Senator
from Louisiana. If Packard is not the legal
Governor and Kellogg the legal Senator of Lou
isiana, the vote of the State for Hayes was not
legal; for it all came about from the same can
vass by tbe Returning Board. In South Caro
lina, there is more room for doubt, for all agree
that Hampton ran considerably ahead of Til
den. CP" Col. MeClnre has issued the first number
of the Weekly Philadelphia Timet, an eight-page
sheet, v ith seven broad columns to the page. It
is filled with choice reading. A leading feature
will be interesting original articles on th un
written history of tho war, from the pens of
leading men, both Union and Rebel. The first
article is by Gideon Welles, formerly Secretary
of tbe Navy, on tbe subject of Iron-clad Monitor.
y Soma of th Eastern paper expose Major
n. S. Sleeper as a swindling advertising agent.
He is another "formerly of Kansas." He fallow
ed th profession of pol itieal shyster, which he
mad to pay during tbe war; but after that, be
sbystered himself ont, and a few years sine
gravitated to tbe East, when he ha brought np
as above stated.
E7 The first gnn since Hayes' inauguration,
has been beard. Tbe New Hampshire election
took place Tuesday. Tbe Republican elect
their Governor by an increased majority, a large
majority in both branches of the Legislature,
and probably all of the three Congressmen.
C7 The West has no occasion to grumble
about not being remembered in tbe formation of
Hayes' Cabinet. New England has one member,
tbe Middle States one, tbe South oue, and tbe

VST It is said iu Washington, that Sartoris,
Graul's son-in-law, ha neither ambition nor
