A Good Joke on Grant.?uMack" tells
the following:- This is* as good'a place as
any to tell what .1 conceive to bo a good
joke at Grant's expense perpetrated by so
grave a person as Attorney Geneial Stati
bury. My authority is unquestionable-,.as
irMuct; it always is. Soon after Grant'*
accession to the cabinet he brought up a
proposition, in cabinet meeting, in regard
to the abolition of whipping, as a punish
ment for crime, in the South. The whip?
ping post, he said, was a relic of barbarism,
and it ought be abolished; All the cabinet
officers agreed on that point, but they
differed as to the propriety of interfering
against the penal laws of a State. Mich
punishment, was being gradually abolished I
anyhow, and would soon.disappear entire- '
ly. But Grant believed* that 'something :
ought to-be done by. the army to prevent j
its continuance. It-was so barbarous that i
it onght to be tolgftued a day |i.ii?rer. ?
yStanbery glanced iWffiv ge. end, and saiil
- in.a-.quiet way: "I believe you still buck
' and gag men and tie them up by the lhuuil?s
io^ihe army, within a mile of this house,
don't you ?' * i
"YVs,'' the general saidv"that had to be '
done some titnes." j
''Well, it seems to me," replied Stanbery,
-?that it's a little w-orse to buck and gag a
maa for getting tipsy than to whip him
tor larceny. If yourhud.to choose, would
yon rather be whipped or gagged V
The general ' ad to acknowledge that, as
between the two, he'd *afce the whipping,
and'he postponed'fulher remarks on the
barbarism of the 'whipping post to some
future jutetiag. 1

The Oldest Man in America..
The Detroit Post gives the following ac?
count of a man who lives in that city, aged
114 years :
In a low cabin at the .upper end of a
narrow alley, branching oft' from Fourth
street east," between Hastings and An?
tonie streets, there dwells a poor negro,
known among his kindred'as "Old Father
Robinson." It.is customary to apply the
appellation "old " to those who have pass?
ed their sixtieth year, but in case of Rob?
inson the adjective requires an additional
one to qualify it. for being now in his 114
year, he is not only very old, but is, doubt?
less, best entitled to the oft repeated
phrase, the oldest inhabitant." Nor is
his-remarkable longevity the sole feature
in this aged negro. Unlike many, Iiis fac?
ulties have been retained unimpaired !?
Up to this week his vision was nndimmed
and his hearing unusually acute, but du?
ring the last few day*-he has faiicd: rapid?
ly until in his own expressive language,
" the clock is almost run down."
Robinson was born in August, 1753, on
the plantation of Col. Du Chiclle, in East
Maryland.. Through the war of the Rev?
olution, Robinson followed the fortunes of
his master, serving him in the capacity of
body guard. It was interesting to sit and
listen to this old man a few months ago,
.befbie the film of death had obscured, his
mental vision, and hear him tell ot the ex?
ploits of the Revolutionary soldiers, and
describe the terrible battle scenes th'ough
which he had passed. A saber cut on the
top of his head and the loss of a forcfin
ger are the mementoes of his valor. With
especial pleasure he would relate how the
British army surrendered at Yorktown,
and would depict the scene when the proud
Lord Cornwallis delivered up his sword to
In the battle of New Orleans, fought on
January 8, 1815, when General Jackson
overthrew the British host under Packcn
ham, Robinson also participated in the
same capacity as in the Revolutionary
war. A century is a long period to look
back upon, yet Robinson could describe
the events of. his youth with clearness and
vigor, which always rendered them inter?
esting to- his auditors.. In his humble
cabin.many of our respectable and "wealthy
citizens have frequently assembled to min?
ister to- his-feeble wants, in return for
which he would repeat the sto'y of his
life, and relate incidents of- the several
crises through which the nation has passed
from its struggling infancy to its present
As tiie reward of his faithful services,
Robinson- was manumitted some forty
years ago. lie lias been married several
times-, but his children and his "wives were
separated from him; Ilia- present'wife,
with whom he has-been living over twen?
ty years, is fifty-nine years oldj lie being
nearly double her age.
When over eighty years of age he was
still a robust1 man, six feet in height, and
quite erect. Such is the result of a tem?
perate and moral life. At an early
period he became connected with the
Wesleyan Methodists," of which Church
he is still a member. Christian men, white
and ' black, frequently stand beside his
couch, and the impression left upon them
all is that Robinson has built his hope on
a sure foundation.
One hundred and fourteen years !' Few
would wish to live so long. Life is sweet,
and men will cling to it with blind and
struggling tenacity, but the ^.majority
would be willing to "fall asleep," before
a century had passed over their heads.
No longer is there left anything to'bind
us to earth, and the soul then naturally

Congress and the Supreme Court.
The attempt which has been made by a
majority in the House of Representatives
to prevent a decision by the Supreme
Court against the constitutionality of the
Reconstruction Acts, has been condemned
throughout the countn. A large number
of papers in the Republican connection
have denounced" it, and even the most
Radical organs cd'the party Have done lit?
tle more than feebly to apologize for it.
It must not be supposed, however,, that
this result has had any salutary effect
upon the minds of those who originated
the scheme. The new measure which has
since been prepared by Thad. Stephens
(published by us yesterday,) is not pre?
sented as a substitute with any deference
to the prevalent popular condemnation of
the former project, for it,avows-, in express
terms, the object for- which the first bill
was covertly, contrived. Mr. Stevens and
some wf'his Radical coadjutors are sharp
enough-to sec that the original proposi?
tion must'fall by its own weights An un?
constitutional law would have no efFeot in
securing another of the same character
from judicial condemnation.. The new
measure, it will be seen, forbids the ap?
peal to the Supreme. Court of any ca-e
arising under the illegal action of Con?
gress in the establishment of a military
despotism in a part of the United Slates.
This is both a confession that the acts
referred to arc unconstitutional, and the
avowal of a determination to enforce tiium.
at all hazards. But no matter how trying
such desperate measures may be, they can
only be met fairly at the polls, and the
people must possess their souls in patience
until the remedy is in their hands. The
lesson will not be without its uses. When
we portrayed the character of that Radi?
calism now throwing off all disguise; some
of our readers thought that the picture
was overdrawn. They can now see its
deformity for themselves,, and are not
likely to be enchanted with the revelation.
The Conservative portion of the dominant
party are reaping the bitter fruit of their
own sowing, and'we trust that they will
"be-wiser fur all the time to come.:?Journal
Our Future Hope.
When we speak of a restoration of all
our rights under the Constitution, except
slavery, some of our people smile, and
think we are over-sanguine. It is some
consolation to know that we arc not by
any means alone. Read- what the Hon.
Mr. Brooks of New York said a few days
ago in a speech delivered by him in the
V. S. House of Representatives:
14 We intend to undo what has been
done by this Congress} and- we shall soon?
er or later, have the power within the
walls of the House to undo it all. These
proceedings in Ohio and New Jersey are
but the beginning of the revolution
lias already' made its appearance else
where; aud prerogatives, and powers
which the majority in this House is now
assuming in the moat revolutionary man?
ner we intend to make use of to undo all
these revolutionary and- violent proceed?
ings. So the honorable gentleman from
Massachusetts might as well make up his
mind to see the beginning of this great
reactionary movement. We do not intend
to deprive the negroes of the South of
their liberty. We"intend to allow them a
five-fifths representation, not a three-fifths
one, which the negroes in the North are
having; But we do not intend to allow,
30 far as we c an help it, the people of the
North to be brought into negro co-part?
nership in government on the floor of this
House, or to be ruled by black majorities,
by rottenborough negro constituencies in
We do not intend to be ruled by any
such government as that, and all the pro?
cesses of legislation by which that has
been reached, or is to be reached.?
Through State Legislatures, as- in Ohio;
through State action, as iu New Jersey;
through 50,000 popular majority in my
own State, to be increased next year to
100,000. If this House goes on with those
proceedings, we intend to undo them all.
I repeat, that everything which has been
done is to be undone. The voice of the
people is no longer heard in whispers, but
m-the loud roar ot the whirlwind, coming
from all parts of the country; and it will
sooner or later unseat a large majority of
those who-now oonstitute the majority on
this floor, putting in their places the De?
mocracy of the country. If t he statistics
of elections are examined even now, it
will he found that a large majority of
members on this side of the House" hold
their seats here and vote here on these
bills who no longer represent their con?
stituents, but are acting in utter defiance
of the people who sent them here."
