All uncertainty as to General
Longstreet's position has be,.n re
moved. He gees back on his Maroi
letter In - favor of Grant aed comet
out strong for Greeley. He stys -his
letter urging the re-election of Grant
was written under the erroneous im.
pression that Grant agreed with hira
in polities and was not responsible for
the conspiraoy of the Federal officials
in Louisiana to supplant the State
Government, subvert the reconstruo
tion laws, and set up a new and un
authorized government. Grant's sub.
sequent course, however with refer.
once to Louisiana affairs,, hat, in
General Longatreet's opinion, trawn
an impassable line between them.
Accordingly an interview -with Gen.
Longstrect is reported in the Now
Orleans Republioan, together with
a copy of the resignation forwarded
to Washington by the general when
he gave up his office of surveyor of
customs at New Orleans. In his
resignation he put his decision on the
ground that he could not co-operato
with or approve the attempts of
prominet Federal officers to break
ddwn or interfere with the preroga
tives of a State, "uuless it be by law
ful measures and for the purpose of
protecting the State in a a republican
form of government." In stpting to
the reporter that he was for Greeley,
General Longstreet defined his post
tion as that of a Republican, in favor
of State iights and opposed to State
sovereignty, which, though onfound.
ed by many, were not synonymous
but clearly distinct. The one in
volves the rights of the States in the
Union and under the Constitution as
an essential safeguard against eon.
tralization ; the other, the right of
the States to quit the Union and be.
come independent of the Constitution.
As the praotical question now was,
shall we change our form of Govern-.
ment ? General Longstreet believed
that the only way to hit the golden
mean between centralization and dis
integration was by supporting the
Ginoinnati platform and ticket&.-.

Rlcalth and Disease.
We copy the following from the
We seriousl7 question whether
there is one haaf of the diseases enu
morated in any good work on the
practice of mod iine, which the best
practitioners dream of curing. They
simply let these diseases have their
course, taking care that nothing except
the complaint shall obstruct tlhi pa

that the recuperative power of the

Physicians are beginning to know
how little they know, which is a long
stride toward national practice. They
are gradually relinquishing their faith
in drugs, and placing their trust more
and more in the recuperative power
of their patients. Leas, calomel, rhu
barb and jalap, and more pure, sweet
air, more good food and drink, more
cleanliness and good companionship to
prevent mental depression and dis-,
couragement, with rest, are the med i.
cinos now fast becoming popular, and
they are gratefully received rather
than rejected by the sick.
The present state of medical science
is the natural result of the general
progress of the time. Old supersti
tions are recognized in their true
character through the light of modern
scionoe. The microscope, the spec.
troscope, the chemist's .paraphernalia,
have given us some insight into the
oction of certain substances when in
troduced into the human system, that
shows the belief in their efficacy to be
unfounded. Empiric conclusions
must hereafter be of that positive
character which leaves no room for
doubt, and though sickness can never
be pleasant, the coming sick man need
not fear that artificial horrors will be
added to the couch of pain through
the administration of nauseating
medicines of uncertain value, and the
dprivation of all external applianes.
