Oar Denocrmtic brethren have a Unite

their aameat support fn ftvovof P-esI-dent
Grant ; just a if it were something
nnusoal for such persous to inpport a i
President of tbeir own party.
The precedent of the Democratic party
itself is in favor of just inch a support.
The office-holder of every Democratic
adaMaiatraliou always, weraa amit ia tiwt
particular, not excepting -the disastrous
administration of James Baehanaa. lite
coewtry does not forget the pertinacity of
the great majority of the office holders
under Buchanan, ia upholding hiia when
the people of the North were outspoken
against hiss. It is believed that had a
Republican Administration been in power
when the Rebellion manifested itself as
it did under Mr. Buchanan,' and had the
Chief Executive pursued the same favor
able course toward the Rebels that Mr.
Buchanan did, that the niueteen-twen-
! tieth of the commissions held bv the of
fice-holders would bare been sent to him
for disposal. This belief almost becomes
a powerful conviction ia the full light of
the fact that when Andrew Johnson be
came an apostate, that thousands of of
fice holders throughout the North threw
up their commissions and woulJ act under
bis administration. 'And it is worthy of
notice, too, that Democrats were ready
and eager to gather up the cast away
"loaves and fishes." !
Whatever may be said of the eager-
ners of the office holders to favor the re-
; nomination and re-election of President
body of the Republican party. First-'
' dent Grant is not the nominee of the
offife hoUt for the Pridccy nrXt

denunciations that the Democrats heap j
nPon b'm ,ike feathers, lightly, and j
do no krm, or tcir prophetic declara- j
xions in regard to him have all ended in '
miserable mistakes, And he has been just !
'. the opposite of all that they told the '
' world that he would be. ' '
President Grr.nt had scarcely loomed :
; into prominence aj a General, when the
Democracy opened their fire of denunci-
ation, and declared him a failure. Ac-
was a failure all through the war, even
after he had compelled the Rebels to

"Then in the eyes of the erring breth

A New Yoik correspondent of the

ir facta concerning the line of defence
which will be followed by the counsel of
' Stokes, the supposed murderer of James
Fisk, Jr. We write supposed advisedly
' for nothing is certain in this world, and
, although there has not probably been a
doubt tbat Stokes did shoot risk to
j death, the lawyers are going to try to
I prove, and from appearances will succeed
! 5o Dr0Tinlr, th,t he did not One of the
startling positions taken is that Col. Fisk
was not only armed, but that the wound
in his body was iuflicted by himself in
dieted a hi Valandigham, in attempting
to draw his pistol from his pocket. That
two pistols were used, the correspondent
declares, is very clear, from the fact that
two bullets were found, one in Fisk'e
body and one on the marble pavement,
the one bullet fitting the pistol found and
the other not the bullet in the body fit'
ting the pistol found, the bullet on the
floor, which produced the wound in the
arm, not fitting any pistol yet produced.
This is certainly very ingenions, and
may cheat the gallows ot a victim.

Cot'TY. A correspondent writes from
Great Bend to the Montrose Republican
the following account of a terrible case of
superstition and its results gathered from
eye-witnesses of the affair: ' i '
A Mr. Eli Stowe and wife, tiring in
Randolph, some four miles from the
Bend (Nazarites), becoming possessed
with the idea that the devil had entered
their child (a baby only eighteen months
old),' and that the evil spirt must be eon
qured by whipping and starring, are
said to have tied tbe helpless infant in a
high chair for twenty-three hours ever
and aaon spanking and whipping it until
when discovered it was black and blue
from its neck to its heels, and its little
quivering flesh so cut and mangled by
the lash that the blood actually trickled
down the chair to the floor. The alarm
was given by the hired man, who hast
ened to the child's grandparent, a Mr
Kent, living near Windsor Tillage, who
on learning tbe facts, hastened as fast as
whip and spur could urge a fleet horse,
and on reaching the house of the infat
uated parents, actually found tbe - babe
undergoing crucifiction at the hands of
the father and mother, as above stated.
A few hours longer must have ended its
sufferings, as the child seemed to' be so
exhausted as to be nearly insensible. A
thrill of horror seemed io pervade that
community, and a universal murmur for
tbe law to have its weight The parents
have heretofore been regaided as good
citizens, and the cause of this temporary
j religious insanity is not known.

tbat he believed that if he had been put

tbat had they swaped coats a doseo times
Jim would have made money every time.
We talked about' him as a peddler and
some oue told 'how he offered goods to
merchants ia a certain town at prices
lower than they could buy them in the
cities, but they would not buy from him,
and how he then auctioned out his goods
at lower prices than the merchants paid
for theirs ; and how ha returned every

We talked about him and his cheating
operations against the government by
supplying blockade ' runners with goods
for the rebels. The rebels are responsi
ble for developing much good and a great
deal of bad. ' Jin was one of the bad
things that they brought out. If the rebels
had not of kicked up a raw, Jin Fisk
would yet ha driving a peddler wagon,
and there wonld'nt now be a fellow in
jail for murdering him. Wa ' talked
about his getting into the Erie Railroad
as a director, and bow he got 150.000 ille
gal shares of stoek issued, and how, when
the fraud was about getting him into
trouble in New York, he carted the books
of the company over to New Jersey
where the courts of' New York could'nt
reach him, and then waited till the New
loik Legislature met, and then, went
and spent among the member a half mil'
lion of dollars to get the Legislature to j
legalize the issuing ' of the $50,000 of

We talked about his sharp work with
old Vanderbilt, about bia theatres, about
his hotel, his horses, and Lis carriages,
and his regiment. But O shades of An
dy Jackson, how we talked when we
got the part that the woman played, that
caused Jim's murder. Some of our fel

so innocent as to hold just that notion

Andy Jackson said anything in regard to
that score. To the eternal honor of qld
Andy it cannot be said that he cut any
bad shines wi:h women and no man went
to greater length than he did to vindicate
her honor He . was a church-goiug
member, but you know that he cut off
the social intercourse that he had with a
favorite preacher and quit going to his
church, all on account of a woman. Mrs
Eaton was the woman tbat was the cause
of Andy's religious devotions coraiug to
an end in tha particular church. She
had been a bright maiden, and was the
daughter of a man tbat kept tavern near
Washington. , One of them fancy chaps
that are always in the Navy fell in love
with her. He got awful sick, as young
fellows do, and asked her to marry him.
She did, and after awhile when he was
off sailing in his ship away over near
Italy, he shot himself, on purpose. After
a respectable season of widowhood the
lady was wooed and wop by Mr. Eaton
who became a member of Andy Jack
son's Cabinet, and it was soon circulated
about Washingten that old Andy was
again to have Mrs. Eaton to do the
honors of the "White House." and that
got np an awful bill of a billow among
tbe fair ladies and gentlemen at Wash
ington. They talked bad things about
Mrs. Eaton. They thought tbat Andy
would hear the stories and put her out
He did hear; but he did not mind. . They
thought that they would have to make
(hem plainer, and that he must be told
that there was a great feeling against
him because of tbe woman. So they
got a preacher tbat .old Andy bad a
great liking for to tell him all about tbe
matter. The minister told him. Old
Andy went for the case straight, and said
that be did'nt believe a word of all that
was said. He ssid that be had known
her long, and he had never Seen any
thing wrong in either of her words or ac
tions. He said that Mrs. Jackson in her
day had known her, and that she be
lieved Mrs. Eaton a pure woman, and,
said he, ." By the Eternal, you must
all have a fair shake. Get all your wit
ness together and let me hear what, you
know." - All of the women's enemies
were got -together and a big pow-wow
was held over her, and instead ot making
her seem guilty in Andy's mind, she only
seemed purer than ever. He swore that
it was only a pack of lies that they had
batcbed np on account of jealousy and
envy, and he dismissed them with,, an
awful lecture. ';
