Ar? tile Democrat? Playing PoaanmT
The Grant organs thronghont the
country, conscious of their inability to
meet squarely the masterly arguments of
the liberal Republicans against the de
foots and dangers of Grant's rule, have
resorted to every base means to belittle
and thwart the reform movement-the
growing magnitude of whioh is daily ex?
citing their increased alarm. The two
New York Grant-loving journals-the
Times and the Herald-are crammed
with personal attacks upon Greeley,
Schurz, Trumbull, and, occasionally,
other prominent Republicans oonnected
with or known to favor the opposition to
Grant. To these men who bnt lately
were the pride and power of the Repub?
lican party, in the eyes of these very
journals, tho basest and most selfish
motives are attributed. Because their
patriotism is not provincial, because
they have hearts to feel for the oppres?
sion of the South, beoause they lament
?he devastation and ruin whioh recon?
struction and hate has wrought, beoause
they sse in a genuine reconciliation be?
tween the North and South the only
hope of a prosperous and permanent
Union, because of these noble senti?
ments, they are taunted with being
rebel sympathizers and friends of trait?
ors. They are called sore-heads, office
seekers and political gamesters, of the
most reckless and unprincipled charac?
ter. The thought suggests itself that if
it be possible that these things be true;
if Lyman Trumbull, Charles Sumner and
Horace Greeley, the founders and lead?
ing lights of Republicanism, be snob
moral monsters, what, in the name of
God, most third rate Republicans like
Morton and Gonkling, and rte mass of
Grant supporters, be? But another
equally insidious and underhanded me?
thod of frightening honest RepaWioans
from joining the effort for Republican
reform, appears in their attempt to ox
cite a feeling of distrust against the De?
mocratic party. It is alleged that the
Democrats are only playing, possum;
that their passive policy is only adopted
in order to foster dissension in the Re?
publican ranks; that they have no inten?
tion of supporting the nominees of the
Republican party that may be made at
Oinoinnati, but that when they have suc?
ceeded in getting two Republican tickets
in the field, they will spring up one of
their own and try to run it in. There is
some plausibility in this, and, doubtless,
many Republicans will be induced, by
snob a fear, from openly endorsing the
Cincinnati Convention, until at least the
subsequent action of the Democraoy
convinces them that their fears are
The position of the D?mocratie party
so far has been open, manly and above
board, and such as utterly to discounte?
nance any such base suspicions. The
liberal Republicans know preoisely where
the Democrats stand, and it is a matter
left solely to their choice and discretion
whether the new movement shall be so
shaped as to command Democratic sup?
port. So far we have nothing to object
to, but everything to commend, and if
the Cincinnati Oonvention acts in ac?
cordance with the spirit of the oall that
invited its assembly, it will be as oertain
of receiving Democratic assistance at
the ballot-box as night is to follow day.
The Missouri reform movement is cited
to show what the course of the Demo?
cratic party will be, but the facts are
strangely distorted. The liberal Repub?
licans in Missouri, it is true, did pre?
oisely for that State what tho liberal Re?
publicans to meet at Cincinnati expeot
to do for the General Government, viz:
to purify the. public administration of
affairs, and to inaugurate a feeling of
friendship and reconciliation between
the people of the States, so much di?
vided and antagonized by the late civil
war. It proved a success ia Missouri,
for all must acknowledge that there is
now a better state of feeling, and moro
quiet, peace, good order and thriving
industry in that State than at any time
sinco the war. Did the Democrats bo
tray the friendly Republicans there? It
would not appear so, for if our memory
deceive us not, Gratz Brown, tho liboral
Republican candidato for Governor, waa
eleoted by some 40,000 majority over his
Radical competitor. The truth is, it is
impossible over to rightly adjust our
broken Union through tho instrumen?
tality of eitber the Democratic or Radi?
cal party. Thoso were the parties that
divided tho country just prior to and
during the war, and tho animosities en?
gendered then eling to these parlies still.
The people, on tho one hand, have beon
taught to see in the Democratic party
the advocates of secession, and disnuion,
and slavery. On the other hand, cor tai.:
other people have been taught to soc in
the Radical party centralism, the dc
atruotion of the rights of the States, and
hatred towards the South. To bring
about a genuine reconstruction of the
Union, and to secure the concerted ac?
tion of all the conservativo elements,
there mast be some middle ground for
a rallying point, and this middle ground
we expect the liberal Republicanism of
Schurz and Trumbull to give ns at Cin?
cinnati, as it was given by Gratz Brown
and his followers in Missouri. Liberal
Republicanism, so far as it has disolosed
itself np to this time, may be said to be
Republicanism purged of its Radioal
hate to the South, and of its tendency
to consolidated despotism, and, at the
same time, Democracy purged of seces?
sion and slavery. It combines what is
true in both parties, with the dangerous
protuberances of both lopped off. As
suoh, it is eminently tho conservative
party, and would command, if conducted
as ia Missouri-and we believe it will
be - a large majority of Democratic
votes, even if some hot-heads should
determine to put out a strictly Democra?
tic nomination. The result of suoh a
nomination, even if desirable, in any
event, would, as matters now stand, bs
to throw the election for President in
the House of Representatives, where
Grant would be sure of gaining the
field; and such a risk, we take it, will
not be rashly run, when the conse?
quences would bo so ruinous to the
Trouble In Spain.
The irrepressible Carlists are again
threatening the peaoo and good order of
Spain. Late Madrid despatches report
that a general rising of the followers of
Don Carlos is momentarily expected.
Hing Amadous has certainly not found
in his new throne a bed of roses. He
expresses his determination to sustain
his Government and suppress every at?
tempted insurrection, BO long as he it
oonvinoed that bis rule is desired by a
majority of the people, but seems to be
perfectly willing to resign his royal
honors, if suoh a course no co rd with thc
wishes of his self-made subjects. I'll it
profession of deference to the populai
will, whether sincere or only pretended,
seems to have settled Amadeus mort
securely on his throne than any othei
line of polioy would probably have done
The spectacle of a monarch avowedly
holding tho reins of government only In
the express request and desire of th?
people, is truly a novol ono. Amadeus
it would appear, is even more of a demo
oratio, or people's ruler, than the Presi
dent of the United States. The latte
functionary considers himself as right
fully holding his seat for the length o
his term, however the popular will ma;
fluctuate in regard to him. At least, w
have never heard of one resigning yet
or expressing his willingness to resign
Amadeus, on tho other hand, professe
his readiness to abdicate at any momeu
that ho is assured that his prcsonco is n>
longer demanded. Spain seems, like he
American offspring, Mexico, to be al
dieted with a choice eise of revolutio:
and unrest. From the days of the in
qnisition to the present time, she hn
enjoyed scarcely a day of undisturbe
peace, and this constant interuccin
civil strife has reduced a mighty uutio
that once ranked among tho first powet
of Europe to the level of the most iusig
nifioant. It is a pity that Spain did nc
have some good and free Govern men
like the United States to throw the mat
tie of protection over her, as the lierai
is so continually urgiug Grant to do i
the case of Mexioo. A little Cuban prc
teotorate, at least, might not bo ami.?
for Uncle Sam.

How THEY GET KU KLUX WITNESSES.
A gentleman of strict veracity, who has
lately visited Charleston, sud while there
took much interest in the Ku Klux
trials now before tho United States
Court, informs us of a circumstance
which shows up ono of the vile practices
resorted to by tho Government officers
to obtain negro evidence to implicate
white persons as Ku Klux.
It appears that a number of colored
persons who had been confined in jail as
Government witnesses were called up to
make their statements, receive their pay
and be discharged. One of them, how
evere, persisted in saying that be knew
nothing about the Ku Klux, and oould
give the Government no assistance in
tkat respect. He was informed that, as
be could not, or would not, tell anything,
ho oould not get any pay, consequently
the poor fellow was turned loose in
Charleston, after being kept iu jail by
the United States Government for
months, without a dollar ia his pocket,
while other witnesses were paid off and
sent to their homos, many miles distant,
rejoiciug. Ha remniued in Charleston
about two days, KU tiering for food and
lodging. At the expiration of that timo
tho poor follow went forward and im?
plicated two persons as being Ku Klux,
und was then paid off in full. There is
no doubt that groenbacks have more to
do in procuring testimony against the
citizens of this State than u dosiro to
protect "loil" colored citizens from the
Ku Klux. Is it any wonder that inno?
cent persons fly from tho fear of being
arrested from such testimouy?
FOUL FOOD.-Tho New York Tribune
publishes what purports to bc a detailed

Tribune, avers that an epidemio is threat?

The publication appears to have created
nd small hubbub amoug tho dealers im?
plicated, somo of whom held au indigna?
tion meeting and "hurled back tho
charges," vory much after tho manner
of Congressmen when accused of tainted
transactions. Put, the Tribune is very

Tho North German Gazette, while it

feeling had been caused throughout the

tho timo of tho adjournment of tho As?
sembly. It speaks also of tho character
of the French war budget, and intimates
that it suggests caution on tho part of
Germany, and concludes, that if tho re?

LLOYD TE VIS GETS A JUDGMENT FOB
THE ENTIBE CITY OF SACRAMENTO. -She?
riff Bryte has been in office but a brief
month, yet he has been ordered to per?
form a job almost equal to that delegated
to Hercules in the little matter of clean?
ing out the Augean stablos. He yester?
day reoeived a "writ of assistance" from
the Fifteenth District Court, San Fran?
cisco. Samuel H. Dwindle, Judge, com?
manding him to place Lloyd Tevis in
possession of-and to eject all persons
from-that territory, bounded as follows:
Commencing at the junction of the Sac?
ramento and American Rivers, following
tho East bank of the Sacramento down
to Y street; thence along the line of Y
street to Thirty-first street; thence along
the line of Thirty-first street to tho Ame?
rican River; and thence along the South
bank of tho American River to the plaoe
of beginning; the territory in question
comprising tho whole of the city of
Sacramento, including tho State capitol,
railroad works, agricultural park, ?co.,
?fcc. This monster "writ of assistance"
is issued in conformity to a judgmont
rendered iu the Fifteenth District
Court, Juno 24, 1870, in favor of
Lloyd Tevis, at the suit of Tevis vs.
H. A. Caulfield, Alice Anderson, el al.
Tho suits were brought, we believe,
upon ono of tho numerous Sutler titles
formerly held by Sauudeis as a sort of
trustee for Bomobody. It ?H believed not
to affect all the land iu the city, hut,
under the judgmont and tho writ, Tevis
is let looso to take the pick of tho many
fat things hereabouts, th? whole of
which, according to tho City Assessor,
amounts to some $6,O0O,O0U.
Sherill' Bryte has sixty days in which
to exeouto tim large-sized wrif., but he is
somewhat puzzled to kuow how to com?

his office is less than a dozen meu, aud
he does uotvery well understand how he
is to get a posse of men here to aid him
in driving themselves and families out
of their homes. He did think of making
a requisition for tho Amador Guhrd, but
on second thought concluded that that
forco would provo insufficient; aud then,
again, it was doubtful if tba Governor
would issue tho necessary orders to dis?
possess him of his newly fitted-up man?
sion and his Adjutant General uf his
many lots. Still, tho Sherill feels that
the law forces him to act, if ho bursts in
thc attempt; and though he is not averse
to milk and water measures, ho is dis?
posed, in this case, to go the whole
length of the legal tether.
The now synagogue in Lexington ave?
nue is an architectural ornament to New
York, which is by no means overstocked
with architectural ornament. It is not
only a pleasing object in that point of
view, but it is pleasing in showing the
wealth, tho generosity and the public
spirit of the Jews of New York. While
the Jews were persecuted throughout
Europe and America, the fact that they
had no continuing city was so plainly
and continually presented to them from
without that thoy had no alternativo but
to accept it, aud to derive from it the
consolatiou of a retu/n to tho homo of
their fathers. Even after downright
cruelty aud political persecution ceased
a petty sociul persecution continued
which mado men of Hebrew race and
religion feel liku foreigners in every
land. Tho erection of such magnificent
temples os Emanu-EI and Ahavath Cha?
sed shows that in America this feeling
has gone, too. Tho notion of a return
to Palestino may still bo cherished by
Hebrews; but it is not a poeti3 dream,
aud not a practical probability. Tho
American Jews have come to throw in
their lot unreservedly with tho lot of
their follow Americans of other races,
and to giro themselves an additional
stake in tho prosperity of tho nation of
which they form a part by erecting on
its soil temples of tho Jewish religion as
solid, durable and monumental as any
of tho Christian churches with which
they aro surrounded.

A STOLEN WILL.-During tho winter,
Mr. Harvey G. Law, a wealthy resident
of Brooklyn, E. D., died at his resi?

an estate valued at from ?250,000 to
8300,000. At the time of his doatb, Mr.
Law's only daughter was in Europe on
a wedding tour. Ou hearing of tho
death, tho bridal party returned and
took up their residence in the Law man?
sion. On Tuesday cveuiug last, at about
7 o'clock, while the nflhctcd family were
dining iu tho basement, their colored
servant heard a noiso ou the secoud
story, and hu went to ascertain tho cause
of it. He had no sooner reached tho
locality of tho noise, than a person,
dressed in tho costumo of the devil-as
represeuted on tho stage-presented u
pistol to his head. This unexpected de?
monstration quite demoralized the poor
servant, and he uttered no alarm. The

Pittsburg to move down tbe river to

and so ?caroo and dear had coal become
in the meantime, that steamers from this
port were put under a heavy expense for
fuel at points below. During the past ten
days the eno^-c cf the Alleghunies have
been melting, and a good deal of rain has
fallen along the sources of the Ohio, and
tb?t river has risen sufficiently to permit
the departure of several coal fleets from

bushels of coal had departed during the
