up for General Grant, and scarce an Ouio

tug some particular man to fill that par
ticular place in Grant's Cabinet where

seems to consider -office the chief end of

strenuous efforts. When the offices are
disposed fthe successful being but lew,
the names of the ' disappointed , legion-
then look out for complaints, whlnlngs and

Gen. Grant, before he has beeif in office
ten days, will utter the cry of u Let us
iiave Peace " with more ol heartfelt feeling
than ever before. But, with the throng ot
hungry wolves that surround him, he may
cry, to his heart's content, Peace, peace,"
but there will be no peace, as long as an
office Is to be filled, or a Radical mouth to

party, with General Grant at its lead, as
bound to furnish it. From these, and such
as' these, the President elect may well pray

"We do not know that much is to be
hoped from Congress. Our respect for that
body- is small. ' Our confidence in it is less.'
It is composed mainly ot politicians who
are obedient' to-the: most vulgar preju

ignorance of the masses who elected them."
All of which we cheerfully endorse, and
