the mos,,t brilliant officers in the Union army."
It i- -t.y treit that the Southern people ,to not

Hntco'k "i eeause he was accounted one of
the n. st I riliiant officers in the I'nion
army ; they are not so hypocritical, or so

chef rfully support the nominee of the D)tmo
cratic conention ; anld, in the case of Gen.
II.,noiIk, they conil approve his nomination
as that of a man who ls gained a reputation
in c.lv! ltLaLrar as a ch:mnipion of law, of lib

that could be aecquired by the molt brilliant

The Cincinnati ('ommercial says that "about
one-half of the senators will vote to conv:ct
Jolhnson, whether they believe that he has
been guilty of any other offense than ditfer
ing with his party, or not. They are, of
course. lilpublicans, and partisans of the in
telnsit sort." The Commercial is a I''publi
can lIpaper, and ought to know the character
of its party associates. Of thesn., it thinks
that one-half, taking the Senate as a ri.pre
sentatie icody,, are simply destitute ,'l I. unor,
hlnesty and truth, for this is the meaning of
the statem-ent above referred to.
The New York House of Assembly have

"ho take instinctively to direct and simple
measures of violence, and whose policy, if
tvrg ascendant, would revive every antiquated
uarbarism which advancing civilization, in
better times than these, had successively ex

the world is certain to move, and just as cer

I (c:!'y was: to ,.iri- "tits." Unless there
a-rA. rTe i to begin with, this quack was at sea,
,id the patient was likely to go to wreck.
Ile. thL r, ture, aimed to bring about fits at
oL.ce as tie only sound basis for subsequent
'I srations. Mr. Wade, and other politicians
of like stamp, hld that, in the presence of a
I p'.tih d and tranpquil South, their occupation
would be gone. They are resolved to use
nlistary coercion tor their party pulrposes,
and if an occasion for it do not spontaneously
o ccur, they are resolved to tuake one. There
is no honest and sensible man in the South
alo is not more anxious than they are to pre
serve peace between thhblack and white pop
ulation of that section; aye, and to preserve
it, if need he, by the interposition of
the federal military. They want a standing
army in the South for no other purpose thin
to prevent the woundls of war front healiing
there, and thus to secure an indispeniable
condition of radical ascenudanc at Was.hig
ton. But can Mr. Wade disguise from the
Northern people the hollowness of such a
device for entirely relieving them of the cost
of maintaining an army of repression and ir
ritation in the South, as that which he has
proposed ? "If these Southern rebels don't
behave themselves they tmust be made to pay
the expenses of keeping peace within their
limits. Such, sir, will lbe our policy." So he
is represented to have spoken ; and when his
interlocutor spoke of the difficulty of raising
the required taxes in a country impoverished
by war, Mr. Wade " suggested that the
Sonthern lands would yield ample revenue for
the purpose." It is positively insulting to
the Northern people to teil them th it they
can be relieved, or in any wise benefited, by
ii posing a system of ruinous exactions upon
the Southern people. They can hardly be
ignorant that the revival of material pros
perity in the South would be worth hundreds
of millions to their tax-payers, their bond
holders, their merchants, their farmers and
manufacturers. .\11 those negroes in the
South who have intelligence enough to know
that their freedom means a right to parti|i
pate in the good things of Southern pros
perity. and the necessity of sharing in the
evil things of Southern impoverishment and
degradation, must perceive that the policy of
Mr. Wade is hostile to every interest of him
self and his race.
There is intrinsic prolability in the account of
the remarks by which Mr. Wade is said to have
foreshadowed his reconstruction programme
in case ctf his accession to the acting presi
dency. The indecency with which, being a
senator, he openly looks forward to the occur
rence of this event, and the arrogant tone in
which lie lays down in advance a policy for
his administration on the Southern qluestion,
are scarcely oadeliluted to hasten his advent
to the position which he so contileutly cx
picts to occupy. There are mninny reasons
why such a manifestation on his part should
make against the fulfillment of this expecta
tion. The vulgar and revolting prurien.y
which he has displayed for early induction
into the presidential office, ii not the least
among the causes of regret felt by numbers
of I:epublicans, who \Nere once in favor of
imipeachment, that this.purely party prosecu
tion was ever comlmence d. The c'labs of lbe
publicans referred to would at this moment
sork andl vote aguin-t the conviction of the
I'reslent, were it nt forthe belief, with
shich the more reckle.s of the impeachers
have cunningly inspirel them, that, though
inhieachnent mni:. have been a blunder, the
tnulure to push the measure to comlnlition in
the removal of Johnsln and the installment of
a successor, will be the ruin of the Iepuili

The impeachers begin to tfer that they
may nit succeed ma thei little conspiracy f
ter .al, and the voracious carpet-begge, who
throng the Washington hotels is expectation
of an invitation to Wade's banquet, are, con
sequently, on the verge of despair. Btrong
suspicions of honesty are entertained against
some of the Republican senators. It is more
than hinted that some of these reensant poli
ticians have more regard for their personal
reputation than for the supposed interests of
the Republican party. In this extremity some
expedient is rendered necessary to offset the
defection of the recalcitrant radicals; and
' hat expedient can be better than that of
bringing in two new senators, who are not
afflicted with honor, conscience, or intelli
g(ncr? Such a device would be strictly con
gruous with the policy puisued, hitherto, so
persistently by the Republican radicals. The
tight to vote, on their theories means, as t,
pets.ns, the right and duty of voting the Re
put lican ticket; hence negroes must be en
itanehistd and whites di-franchised. The
tigl.t to sit in Congress means the right and
duty of sending iepiLbhecans to N ashington;
hence D emocrats must be excluded wherever
a pretext can bhe found. The right to vote in
the electoral college, means the right and
dut) of voting for Gen. Grant, the heir appa
lent to the Ibpublican nomination for the
presidency; hence the Southern States must
I,e excluded until they are so reconstructed as
to make their votes reasonably sure in N,,
vember next. The right to vote on the trial
of the PIresident means the right and duty to
vote for conviction; but, unfortunately, there
is no way in which the Democrats and recu
sant Republicans can be forced to fultill this
duty. If enough of them could be expelleld
to make sure of a two-thirds vote for convio
1ta1n, expulsion would go on until
the Senate should be purged of the
last remnant of efficient honesty. rhis
agency is, however, exhausted. Nevertho
ess there is another method equally sa
c( ptable to the ingenious and practical minis
of the impeachers. It is easy enough to ad
mit new senators for the occasion. Two of
these snpliosititious creations of a fictitious
legislature have just been elected in ,Lrknsas,
and are now asking admission to the Senate,
where they may take their seats beside the
"noblest compeers" of the expected Foster
Blodgett. Greely, who is never so thoroughly
conscie ntious as when he is frantically urging
son.e rascally expedient, insists on the adop
tion of this plan. The President must b,
cony icted--honestly if necessary, but dis
l: neatly if possible. Whether or not the
Senate will take this view of the case remains
to be seen; but there is little reason that re
spect for public opinion, or for law and jus
tice would restrain the radical majority from
the adoption of a plan which has the hilh
reconmnendation of intrinsic and unparal

L he Bioton Traveller says: "A gentleman
who for several ,ears had resided in the suburbs
ol this city. hadu~iceeded in gathering quite a
coleciinu ot ancint coine. About a year ago he
muosed into town, and placing his treasure in a
bhx, deposited them in a closet. Not long since
he had occasmon to go to his coin box. and very
much to his surprise found it empty. Upon ap
ipealit; to Lis wife for an explanationhe learned
that sle :not knowing their value had been cul
tivatieg her taste for music by bestowing thets
liberaly upon organ grinders." (
Jennte June writes of a Yew York boarding
lmu.e where the boarders are ranged from the
'ilper toward the lower end of the table, accord.
lng to tLe doors they occupy, and the food gradou
ated accordingly. At the lower end of the table
the tough meat and oundesirable parts of poultry
are served, without gravy, the salad or canned T
vegetables omitted, and butter, oftstimee so
strong. as to be quite uoneatable. The castor is
the boundary, and the strong batter never goes
beyond that dividing line.
The Illinois papers do not speak Ladly of Sen

tale to rntrl once without issaing a proelm

ntrat) is also very bitter upon Mr. Yates and his
e habits sad his pledges. The temmperane people,
too. continue to be desatiafled; and the senator
Is will evidently have to keep his promises a good
while before he wins back the good opinion of the
State he represents.
Beooicanlt wee down for a reply to the toae of
7. "The Drama" at the theatrical fund dinner in
le London. He was sick. but sent tea guineas and
a letter in which he said: "I should feel like
ad G:adstone if he were asked to return thanks for
on- the Irish Church. I am the sacrilegious Icono
clast-tan arch-destroyer of sacred, traditional,
he and vested opinlons. I am one who believes in
In the living drama and the drama of the future; and
I no more desire to wse the defenct dramatilst oc
at couying the stage than I wish to see my grand
n father rise out of his respected tomb and reclaim
my inheritance."
in We quote from a New York letter: " On the
fashiunable Fifth avenue will soon be erected a
ret new Epiecopal house of worship, to be called
)m 'The Church of the Heavenly Rest.' It is really
th- a memorial to the two deceased children of the
Rev. Mlr. Howland, rector of the Church of the
he Hily Apostles, on Ninth avenue. This gentleman
tr is that anomaly, a wealthy clergyman. lie
ri bought the expensive locality on Fifth avenue
himself, and contributes thirty thousand dollars
er, mre toward the building. A friend of his gives
rll another twenty thousand; and with an additional
u. ten thousand given by other partied, the work
starts on a sound basis."
