It mast be gratifying and encouraging
to lo?ers of republican liberty through?
out the entire* Union, but especially to
oppressed and almost despairing South?
erners, to mark the growth, soli ifloation
and appreciably tangible and distinct
form which the anti-Grant movement is
every day more clearly exhibiting. The
meeting at Cincinnati, which was re?
garded but a short while Binoe as exceed?
ingly problematical, may now be expect?
ed with certainty, and from a mere masa
meeting of factious and comparatively
aniufluential liberal Republicans, as the
Grantites first predicted it would be, it
promises now to be a powerful conven?
tion of the' ablest, most distinguished
and influential adherents of the domi?
nant party. The schism in the Repub?
lican ranks is broad and deep. There is
no remedy that oan re-unite it, and what
is tue most cheering feature in the whole
aspect of the matter is, that tho brains
and character, as represented by the
leaders of the party, is on the side of the
opposition to Grant.
There are not four-no, not one
public man of the Republican persua?
sion, who oan compare in point of past
reputation, intellectual power and per?
sonal integrity with Trumbull, Sumner,
Greeley and Schurz. These men, with
a host of others equally patriotic though
less prominent, have irrevocably turned
their backs upon Grant, and will give
direction and impulse to the action of
the Cincinnati Convention. The popu?
larity of Grant with the Republican
masses at the North, as the hero of tho
war, and with whom his misconduct and
utter unfitness is fondly misbelieved,
cannot at once be overthrown, even by
the defection and opposition of such
influential men as are ai rayed against
him. Large masses of people do not
very readily surrender their prejudices
and prepossessions for a popular idol;
and if the liberal Republicans were de?
pendent solely for success upon the votes
of their own party, they would inevita?
bly experience a most disastrous defeat.
They must look, then, to the conserva?
tism of the Democratic party to insure
* the election of the candidates they may
put in the field against Grant. The
Democratic voters of the country, up
war 3s of 3,000,000 in nnmber, will aot
OB the balance of power, and it is now
morally certain will give their support
to tho Cincinnati nominees, if the plat?
form npon whioh they will base their
olaims to the suffrages of the people,
be not repugnant to honest Democratic
Without, somo falso or foolish step,
then, upo., the part of the liberal Re?
publicans, of which there is at present
no indication, there is every reason to
indulge the hope, BO grateful to a South?
erner's heart, that Grant will havo to
vacate the White House on the 4th of
March next. There was not a man at
the North at the close of the war who
could so readily have fired the enthusi?
asm and esteem of our Southern people
than Gen. Grant. The fact that be was
the honored foo of our Lee, had be ex?
hibited the least magnanimity toward
the brave though vanquished followers of
his great antagonist, would have plaoed
him at once firmly in the affections of
our people. But him whom we were
half inclined to think a hero' has shown
himself a mean, grasping, stupid tyrant,
devoid of all ncblo impulses; a stolid,
bull-headed, avaricious block-head, with?
out the first redeeming quality. His
solo object since his inauguration seems
to have been to enrich himself and ad?
vance tho fortunes of his relatives. A
poor man when elooted to the Presi?
dency, he is now said to be worth $700,
000 or 3800,000, gained without any
honest industry within the past four
The New York IHnies says: "The rate
at whioh this country has reduced both

rate at which debt and taxation accumu?

hensible to nativo financiers-and the
debt, after all the boasted reduction, is
still incomprehensible, and taxes are ?till
incomprehensible, and tho thioving of

Th? Connecticut Election.
Tbe next move on the political chess?
board, which will bavfe a bearing on tbe
Presidential election, is tbe State elec?
tion in Connecticut. Now Hampshire
waa carrig by the Republicans, abd the
result fiiad effects which are not, we
think, to be lamented. It is considered
as determining Grant's nomination, and
thus, bj destroying the hopes of the
liberal Republicans of defeating bim at
Philadelphia, causing them to turn with
greater unanimity and earnestness to the
independent Cincinnati convention, as
affording the only opportunity of accom?
plishing their purposes of reform. ' On
the other hand, the losa of New Hamp?
shire opened the eyes of the Democrat ia
party to the hopelessness of making a
straight-out opposition to Graut on
purely Demooratio issues, and inclines
them, with but little diversity of opinion,
to give their support to tho liberal Re?
publicans, as the best thing loft for them
to do in this canvass, at least. Now comos
Conuectiout, and the question arisen,
how will that Stato, going Democratic or
Republican, ohange the status of affairs
in relation to Grant and the Presidency?
Tho reform Republicans of that State
seem to be wavering as to the best course
for them to pursue-whether to com?
mence tho war upon Grant at once, by
giving tho State to the Demoorats, or
whether to vote with the Grant Republi?
cans, and thus save the State to tho
party. It is feared, beside the distaste
of many to defeat the party, that suc?
cess in Conneoticut may so far encourage
the Democrats as to induce them to en?
ter tho canvass with their own ticket,
and thus neutralize tho effort for reform
within their own rankB.
In our judgment, their fear on this
latter Ecore is without much, if any,
foundation. It is generally agreed, by
tho Demooratio press of the country,
that no party fight will be made, so long,
at least, as the liberal Republican move?
ment gives promise of reform and of
success. Victory in Conneoticut, gained,
too, by the assistance or neutrality of
anti-Grant Republicans, will not chango
the Demooratio mind on this point; and
what the reform Republicans of Connec?
ticut should best oonsider, is the effect
which a Grant victory in that State will
have upon their own ranks. Now Hamp?
shire has insured Grant's renomination
at Philadelphia. Conneotiaut will only
increase his chances for re-election by
casting a damper upou the Republican
opposition. There is u great desire with
men without earnest and settled convic?
tions to be on the winning side, and a
promising start for Grant will do more
to weaken the opposition than anything
else. We trust tho anti-Grant Republi?
cans of the nutmeg State may conclude
to follow tho wisest course, which will
be to keep from thc polls at tho Stu to
election and oonceutrato their powers

A FEARFUL ADVENTURE.-Ia the after?
noon pl the 3d inst., two youug .tuen of
SI is city discovered, some two miles
Blow town, m canoe lodged on a drift
Sile in tlie river. One of thom, Euglo
?rt'Shulor, working for Mr. Dwenger,
the blacksmith, proposed to secure the
oanoe, aud immediately set to work to
carry out his purpose. Tying two logs
together with grape vines, he poshed
out in tho river, which is at that point
very rapid and deep. About seventy
five yard? from tho shore; his frail raft
encountered one of those" 'hugo logs
that are frequently met with rearing
their ugly heads out of tho water. The
shook proved too much for tho grape
vine oonoern and it weut to pieces, the
youug navigator and captain of the im?
promptu craft, however, saving himself
by jumping on tho big log. His com?
rade, whose name we havo not been
able to learn, after watching the discom?
fiture of his friend, went buck to town
aud informed the friends of young
Shuler of his dangerous situation. By
that time it was nearly dark, sud n per
feet hurricane from the North had set in,
chilling with its bitter cold breath ail
liviug things, und dashing furiously the
icy waves agniust tho single stick of
timber to whiob, with stiffening limbs,
tho young man hung with a death grip.
Help soon appeared, and Mr. Dwenger
aud other friends endeavored to got
Shuler off in a small scow or ? it-boat,
but the furious tempest -and rough
waves, after every attempt, drove them
back to the shore, and Dually swamped
the boat, and the men wero reluctantly
compelled to leave the unfortunate man
to the fearful fate of an almost certain,
lingering, painful death.
And there the unhappy man stood, ?ll
through that fearful night, with but two
yards of an old, slippery, ice-crosted log
under him, exposed to tho fearful blast
in the wide stretch of the broad Arkan?
sas, ever and anon washed off his preca?
rious foothold, bia clothes gradually be?
coming hard as a coat of mail, his limbs
stiff and cold, with naught but death be?
fore him; and all this in sight of home,
in sight of the bright lights of bis native
plaoe, the emblem of comfort and safety,
glittering so tantalizingly through the
darkness and storm. Who can imagine
the bitterness of spirit nud agony of tho
wretched boy? Early on Monday morn?
ing the report iu town was that Engel?
bert Shuler waa seen on tho log stiff in
death, upon which Mr. Neoly Birnie aud
Mr. Blaokshire Bullock determined to
go down and bring off tho body. Ar?
rived off the place, they Baw what they
believed to bo the body stretched out on
the log. The scow also was found half
I filled with water frozen solid. They im
j mediately set to work building a bro ou
the ice on the boat, and finally suoceeded
in dearing it. Pushing out cautiously,
they managed to make their way across,
stemming a powerful current and pur?
suing a zigzag course through thia but
largo shoots of ioe rapidly floating down
struan. When they near od tho log they
found, to their glad surprise, that Shuler
was not dead, but hts speech and con?
sciousness were nearly gone, Reviving
him with a little spirits, they as fast as
possible brought him to the shore, and,
tukiug him between thom, his arms
around their necks, they hurried with
tho utmost despatch towards town.
After proceediug about half a mile, they
met a party with a wagon, whiob hud
also sturted to the rescue. Placing him
thereon, the party soon reached town.
Ou examination it was found that Shu
lei's hands, nose, ears and lower extre?
mities were fearfully frozen. He now
lies in a precarious condition at tho resi?
dence of Mr. Jos. Noble, attended by
Dr. Du val. He will probably lose his
feet. Great credit is duo to Messrs.
Birnie aud Bullock for their timely res?
cue of the young man, without which
he must certainly have perished

Tua SOUTH FOU SETTIIEHS.-The Nash?
ville Union and American aays:
The present Winter has written a tale
of unparalleled horror on the pages of
Western history) As yet, however, not
one-half the story of suffering from ter?
rible frosts, and tl atna go from the blind?
ing snow storms, hos met thopublto eye.
Snow has been piled house-high in many
localities, and men, women and ohildren
frozen while endeavoring to obtain food
and fuel. In many casos parties were
overtaken in tho open air and killed by
tbe blighting embraces of the North
wind; in others, whole families died by
their own fireless hearthstones, aolc,
hungry and alone. Thone are some of
tho incidents which hnve marked the
winter in 1872 in tho West.
More eloquent arguments could not be
adduced to attract settlers to the South
than here presented. And if the South
had any sort of a fair show against tho
lies and misrepresentations of partisan
bato and deviltry, and Western land
rings, immigration would not long con?
tinue to flow as it does iuto the region
where all these horrors aro inevitable
during tho wilder months. Referring to
the saine, matter, the Chronicle and Senti?
nel well says:
Although the winter has been Bevero
hero, as everywhere, the most severe in
many years, there han not been a day
when work could not be dono with com?
fort, in doors or out. No human being
has been frozen to death, nor any live
stock that wus worth the poorest shelter?
ing diod from exposure. All farm stock
has been at large every day, and not
even a calf has been iujured by cold, in
civics where starvation und neglect have
been added lo tho inclement season.
In the South the fanner can work
every doy in tho year, instead of lying
idle two to four mouths on account of
snow and Iroz-m ground, as he must do
North and West. In the most inclement
seasons ever known snow is a rarity in
this latitude, and in parin of Qoorgia

Henderson, the Herald correspondent,
wont to Henry Boiry Lowrey's house,
on Friday night, and that soon after en?
tering, Stephen Lowroy and Andrew
Strong also walked in, when one of them
spoke to Henderson in a peremptory
manner and ordered him to got up ami
go with them. Henderson, knowing
from the way that he was addressed thal

A SAD FALLING OCT.-It ia indeed a sad
falling out when, after years of the closest
intimacy, tho hair parta company with the
head. Fortunately, tho lamentable separa?
tion may bo easily prevented and the twain
more closely united than ever by a timely and
systematic nye of LYON'S KATUAIRON, the most
! potent in vigoran t of the hair and promoter of
: its growth and beauty known to modern phar
j macy. It completely obviates tho dry and
: parched condition of the roots of tho hair,
which is preliminary to ita coming out, by
suppl) ing the preciso degree of moisture re?
quisite to its preservation in a healthy stale.
: lt is tho oiili- true dissolvent and ?vaporant o?
dandruff and other impurities of tne scalp,
whose prosenco is injurious to the hair. As a
' beantiuirof tho hair, the Kathairon has no
. equal, lt not only increases tho quantity of
I the hair, but improves its quality immediate
I ly, imparting a lustrous appearance ana
? silky texture which arc exceedingly attractive.
SUICIDE GGMUITT&D, aa tho result of an in?
active state of liver and stomach, producing ,
headache, obtuse intellect, dullness, despond?
ency, dementia, and finally insanity, is no
uncommon occurrence. All these disagree?
able symptoms aud bad feolings are most cer?
tainly dispelled by tho UBO ot Dr. Pierce's

VENETIA* BLINDS.-NO invention was ever
eo important to the people of hot climates as
the Venetian blind. Admitting th? air and a
shaded light, while keeping out tho heat and
glare, they aro absolutely essential to com?
fort in this country. If tho hontes of any of
oar readers aro destitute of these valuable
contrivances, they should at once, before the
hot weather sots in, send their orders to Mr.
