WASHINGTON, May 30.--President
Grant yesterday addressed the follow
~ng letter to the president of the Penn
qlvania Republican convention:'
WAsHINGTON, I). C., May 29. 1875.
Dear Sir : A short time subse
quest to the presidential election of
-- 1872, the press, a portion of it hostile
to the Republican party, and particu
larly so to the administration, started
the cry of Casarismn and tihe Third
term, - calling lustily for me to define
-my positiou ~on the latter subject. I
believed it to be beneath the dignmty
--of the office, which I have been twiec
called upon to fill, to answer such a
question before the subject should be
-presented by competent authority to
-make a nomination, or by a body of
such dignity and authority as not to
make a reply a fair subject of ridicule.
---In fact, I have been surprised that so
many sensible persons in the Repuli
e an party should permit their enemy to
force upon them and their party an
issue which cannot add strength to
the party, no matter how met. But
a body of the dignity and party au
thority of a Convention to make
nomiuations for the State officers of
the second State in the UTnion having
~ eecnsidered this question, I deem it not
improper that I should now speak.
In the first place, I never sought
the office, for a second nor even for a
first nomiination. To the first I was
called from a life position, one created
by Couaress expressly for me, for sup
posed services rendered to the Repub
lie. The position vacated I liked. It
would have been most agreeable to nme
to have retained it until such time as
Congress mi ght have consented to
my retiremenit, with tile rank and a
portion of the emoluments which I so
mLuch needed, to a home where the
ba lance of my days might be spent in
* peace and the enjoyment of domestie
quiet, relieved from the cares which
-have oppressed ime so constantly now
* for forreen years. But I was nmade
to believe that the public good called
mec to make tile sacrifice. Without
seeking the office for the second term,
-the nom,ination was tendered to me~
by a unanimous vote of the delegates
P of. all the States and Territories se
lected by the R~epublicans of each to
re- --esent their whole numi er for the

I cannot say that I was not pleased at
*this. and at the overwhelming endorse
mlent whlichl their action miceived at
the election following; but it must he
remembered that all the sacrifices, ex
eept that of comfort, has been made in
accepting the first term. ThieIl, tooi,
such a fire of personal abuse -and
slander had been kept up for four
years, notwithistanding~ the conscien
tious performanee of my duties to the
best of my understandit g. though I
admit in the light of subsequentI
even'.s many times subjec+ to fair
criticism, that an endorsement from

tion ? Answer: 17 answer "not good

10 answer "very good."
A very hopeful- eign is to be found
in the followingz allusion by the Utica
Herald, a republican journal, to the
recent speech of ex-President Davis
made at Houston. It says :
"It is the duty of every loyal citizen
'o accept the words of Jefferson Davis,
as uttered in all sincerity, and as repre
sentative of the revived patriotism of
the whole Southern people. It should
be the regret of all that the day of
such an uuderstanding has been post
poned so long. We are fast drawing
near to another great Presideutial cam
paign. Certainly the hatred and the
bitterness which have followed their
introduction into former political can
vasses will have no proper place in
those of the future. There will be no
Ku Klux to convince the Northern
voter that the new war is worse in its
crime than the one which preceded it.
There will be no Force Bill, to compel
thme Southern people to think that the
North meant only repression and vio
lence, when it promised complete and
perfect restoration to the Union.
There will nut even be a Louisiana, if
we may trust present indicntions, to
compel the belief that there is no
virtue among public men of either
side in the Southern States. Elimina
ting all these features fromt the can
vass before us, and we have abundaut
ssurance that, ~whatever its event, it
will be followed by a closer fellowship
between North and South."

The Centennial Mania.
Boys are getting to be a very scarce
article in this country. They have
hardly ceased to be babies before they
are mnen. But in compensation, the
whole nation is a great clumsy boy
with all the generous impulses, the
love of plby and boistero-isness, be
longing to that happy age. It is
to be feared that ou celebrating ou
hundredth birth-day we are going tc
show to the old men of Europe
that a nation a hundred years old
is just a good sized boy, and tc
show it by making ourselves ridiculous.
If we keep on with our centenniAs
the way we'have commenced. there
will not be a fire cracker and a pound
of gas left by the 4th of July. There
is not a day in the year but what
something happened a century ago.
Somebody's great-grandfather put a
new flint to his firelock, or somebody's
great aunt baked the cakes for a pa
triotic barbecue this day just one
hundred years ago. These events have
to be celebrated with fire, brimstone,
turkeys, whiskey and buncombe. A
town in Pennsylvania proposes te
cclebrate the centennial of their fore
fathers' meeting and passing resolu
tions in which they declared their un
faltering loyalty to their gracious King
George; and they expect the whole
country to participate and furnish en
thusiasm. Ticonderoga must have
victuals, speeches and bunting, because
the fort with forty-two men was surren
dered to the Robin Hood of the Green
Mountains "in the name of the Great
Jehovah and the Continental Con
gress." The papers are full of a
fight between Princeton and Rutgers
for the ownership of an old cen
tennial cannon that successfully run
away from the Britishers just one
hundred years ago. Independence
could not have been achieved without
that cannon, and the existence of the
nation depends upon the issue. Now
it is certainly very proper, that th<
noble and patriotic deeds of our an
cestors be recalled, as an example foi
the rising generation, to remind us 01
our duties as citizens and to keep ur
our faith in the vitality of republican
institutions; which faith, we must
confass, has received severe shocks ol
late years. But then there is a meas
ure in all thlings. It is difficult te
graduate the imhportance of certain
acts and events in bringing about a
general result, and the selection must
to a great extent be arbitrary; but if
we celebrate at Lexington the first
conflict of arms which directly led to
the war of resistance; at Charlotte,
N. C., tIle first deliberate utterance of
independence from the mother cou ntry
in the Mecklenburg Declaration, and
in Philadelphia the creation and solemn
annouueement to the world of a sepa
rate national existence, we have shown,
it seens, sufficient appreciation of
the valor and virtues of our ancestors,
and given ample opportunity to incul
cate lessons of patriotism and. the
spirit of liberty. Don't let the spell
ing craze be outrun by the centennial
Grant has spoken, but with an un
certain sound. He scarcely knows
what will be best for himself or the
country yet, at least his letter fails to
throw much light on the subject. It
does one tiling, however, and that is
the extinguishing of the'idea that there
is any greatness about him. If there
is any lingering doubt on the subject
his thlorough selfishness and lack of
taste, now so plainly shlown, is proof
sfficient to.explode it. There isn't a
mite of moral greatness in him.
Thousands of men just like him have
blundered into important positions
who had no particular merit to recom
mend or entitle them, and favored 'by
fortuitous circumstances and aided by
he brains and labors of others, have
seemingly accomplished important pur
poses. His war record, the only
hapter in his history of any merit,
was the result of just such good for
une. Grant accomplished nothing.
We never saw it in any other light,
have never believed him capable of
:oing anything great or sublime. His
letter, which will be found in another
olumn, will be found interesting, in
hat it is anlothier and a very strong
roof of his unfitness. Read it.

dry that it did very lhttle good. -It was

A large and select crowd assembled in the
Ibeautiful grove, near King's Creek, on the
S29th, for the purpose of "pie-nicking in the 4
woods," and the occasion was immensely i
enjoyed by all, especially the youths and
maidens of the surrounding vicinity, with
Ithe addition of a gay coterie of fair maidens.
and gallant escorts from Newberry. The
pleasant murmur of voices, the bright and
happy faces of pictures ne groups scattered
through the grand old woods was in striking ]
though beautiful contrast with the frame work,
Nature. The day was lovely; and although f
the "god of day" shot his resplendent rays
athwart the forest, he had no power to eclipse
the rays of happiness reflected in the ani
mated features of the assembled guests. --
Laughing, talliug and pedestrian excursions
were the order of the day, and when sta
tionai-y, huge cotton umbrellas planted in
the ground served for awnings; yet the silken
ones of. olden days couildn't boast of fairer
fair han peered from beneath some of
them. Nor must the sports of the juvenile e
crowd be omitted, who seemed as much to a
enjoy the occasion as their seniors. Young c
America was seen gliding along the banks of t]
the creek in single file until selecting a spot ti

stampede in that direction. Tables would W
