The lawyers are a picked lot, "first
scholars," and the like, but their busi
ness is as uusympathiziiig as Jack
Ketch's. There is nothing humaniz
ing in their relations w ith their fellow
creatures. They go for the sice that
- tains them. Thev defend the man
they know to Ik- a rogue, and not
very rarely throw suspicion on the
man they know to Ik- innocent. Mind
you, I tin not finding fault w ith them,
every side of a case has a right to the
liest statement it admits of; but I say
it dK-s not tend to make them sympa
thetic. Suppose in a case of Fever
r. Patient, the doctor should side with
either party according to whether the
old miser or his exjH-etant heir was his
diiployer. Suppose the minister
should side with the Lord or the Dev
il, according to the salary offered and
other incidentil advantages, where
the soul of a sinner was in question.
Vou can s-e w hat a piece of work it
would make of their sympathies. But
the lawyers are quicker witted than
either of the other professions, and
bier men generally. They are good
natured, or, if thev quarrel, their
luarrels are above-board. 1 donti... . Al . , ..

some of 'em a little aw kw ard occa

find it very pleasant to be sj soiled, no
doubt; so do they. Now and then
one of them goes over the dam ; no

their faces all turned toward the

How about the doctors ? I said.
Theirs is the least learned of the
professions, in this country at least
They have not half the general vul
ture of the lawyers, nor a quarter of
that of the ministers. I rather think,
thougn that tin y are more agreeable
to common run of people than the
men with bW-k coats or the men with
green Wgs. People can swear before
'em if they want to swear or not don't
care whether they want to ewrar or
i.ot, they don't w ant to be on their
good behavior. Besides, the minister
has a little smack of the nexton about
him ; he comes w hen people are in
txtretne, but they don't send for him
every time they make a slight moral
slip, tell a lie for instance, or smug
gle a silk dress through the custom
house ; but they call in a doctor when
a child is cutting a tooth or gets a
splinter in it finger. So it doesn't
mean much when you send for him,
only a pleasant chat about the news
of the day ; for putting the baby to
rights doesn't take long. Besides,
everybody doesn't like to talk about
he next world ; people are modest in
their desires, and find this world as
pood as thev deserve ; hut everybody
loveK to talk physic. Everybody
loves to hear of Ktranffeca.-es; people
reeairrr to tell the doctor of the
wonderful cure. they have heard of;
they want to know what is the mat
ter with Homebody or other who if
paid to be mifljrinjr from "a complica
tion of diseases," and above all to get
a hard name, Oreck or Latin, for some
complaint which sounds altogether
too commonplace in plain English.
If vou will only call a headache a
tbuLtlalaia, it requirs dignity at once,
and a patient becomes rather proud of
it !o I think doctors are generally
welcome in most companies.

THE PHILADELPHIA CANDIDATE.
A short time since there was no
question that the President would be
renominated by the Philadelphia
Convention. It was assumed by the
chief Democratic papers as a fore
gone conclusion, because, as they al
lege, he was the strongest candidate.
That was unquestionably the feeling
among Republicans. It vas that
conviction which produced the Mis
sour: call for a meeting at Cincinnati
to influence the Convention. It was
the same feeling which caused the
Tiilunc to say that the two Conven
tions were wholly distinct, and that
those who were welcome at the one

crumbling, and it was felt that the
re-election of the President would be
the disolution of that party, and the
elimination of the most baneful or
ganized element from our politics.
And why was the rcnomination of
the President believed to be assured?
aud why w as the Democratic party
crumbling? Because of the general
success of the Administration. The
people of the country saw in the
President an honest, simple, patriotic
man, patiently doing his duty. There
was a foolish cry of military desjwt-
ism, and they saw in the bite House
one of the plaiuestt and least ostenta
.tious of American citizens: the mili
tary hero of the late war indeed: but
whoever gravely declared a tenden
cy to military methods in General
Grant's discharge of his duties show
ed himself profoundly ignorant of the
facts. If Congress thinks fit to pro
tect innocent citizens from Ku-Klux
assassins by laws which by some per
sons are considered to be unconstitu
tional, it certainly does not follow
that General Grant inclines to be a
military dictator. Passing from the
Idi-nt, these people saw also that
uauuiiai vviiuiuvu uivu uao wiviuv
proverb. Confidence restored; in-
dustry active and secure; prosm-nty
ment would defend his liberty; the
name of the nation resjK-cted beyond
precedent; a country in which the
sears of the fiercest war were disap
pearing niore rapidly than ever before
The chief of a civil Administra
tion of which these things could be
truly said a chief w ho as leader of
the armies had preserved the govern
ment and saved civilization uon this
continent, and who had sheathed his
sword as modestly as Washington,
was the spontaneous choice for re
election of the mass "of the party
w hich had first elected him. Trou
bles, meanwhile, and dissatisfactions
had arisen. In a government by
party they are inevitable. They have
always existed in our politics never
more positively than in the time of
W asbington. But the trouble would
not have taken serious form except
for the fact of the evident dissolution
of the Democratic party, which was
the crowning proof of the success of
the Administration. Under such cir
cumstances there was a possibility of
an alliance between a few Republi
cans aud the mass of the Democrats,
which might overthrow the Repub
lican party and take possession of the
government And this is the enter
prise which has begun at Cincinnati
This being the situation, the ques
tion is, whether the feeling in regard
to the rcnomination was false and
groundless. On the contrary, there
is no serious doubt that the President
is to-day the positive preference of
the enormous majority of Republi
cans for re-election There are those
w ho say that he is the only Republi
can w ho cannot Is elected; but those ;
who say so merely express their own !
bitter feelings, and can name no man
who could be wisely substituted for '
him. If the Philadelphia Conven
tion should pass him by, whom would
it name? It is easy to mention hon
ored Republicans and able men. But
we must consider the situation. If
it were gravely proposed to Bet aside
the President, it would be because it
was believed that the Cincinnati
movement has shown itself to be
menacingly strong, and because it
was felt that it must be propitiated.
Yet if this were the reason, and no
other' eould be- snggestcd, tborgn-f Solf-matta men,- . e!.i?, hare j own conrsf, and nrsue it ns lie pleaf
ment for adopting Mr. (Jrccley would not hail the apparent advantages of jes. Opposition comes from above
Ik- irresistible, and his Homing t ion I others' help ; and those cimiiiiMunces i Lim ; he ivwivtt little encouragement
would make the rhihulclphm Con
vention as ridiculous as i1 has made
that at Cincinnati. .
riainly. if General (Irant i to 1-
set aside to reclaim the Uincinnnti ie
publicnns, the way to secure the result
is to accept the man whom the Cin
cinnati Republicans declare to be their
prefereaee. If Philadelphia proposes
to surrender its candidate 1 K-cau.se of
the strength of Cincinnati, Cincinnati
will ce rtainly not agree to l-giu again.
It will insist that its man is in the
field, that he is a recognized Republi
can, and that he is proved to have a
stronger individual support than any
Republican who might Ik- nam-'

National Republican Convention is as
likely to nominate General Blair

be nominated, would he withdraw ?
