lUmAtmu matter on Tf ry pim.
It U announced that Gun. William
T. Sherman arrived at St. Louis laet
Monday and has gono into cauip at tho
Congress will probably abolish tho
district of Columbia government. In
vestigation has shown it to bo a sink
hole of corruption. T - "
tcrmincd to appoint a committco of
two senators and two representatives to
doviso and roport a plan of government
for tho district to tho next congress.
Tint now Secretary of the Treasury,
Bristow, has rnado several important
changes in tho department. In outer
ing upon tho discharge of his duties
ho has given cvidonco that he has tho
ability to manago tho department with
skill and tho moral courago to" bo
honest and to root out tho thieves thai
bad boon gathered together under tho
protecting wing of Richardson. It
is to bo hoped that ho will continue to
walk in tho samo path until the end.
Tho president is a remarkable man
"one of tho most romarkablo men in
tho world," as we Amoricans say. It was
eomctiroo ago fashiouablo to denounco
him as a lucky idiot, who had stum
bled to success on tho field and by luck
had been enabled to ehino in the cabi
net. Ho was no true democrat who did
not denounco Grant as an ass whilo ho
was a soldier, and who rcfusod to pro
nounce him a fool when ho became
president. Tho democrat who dared
to assert that Grant was one of our
greatest men was read out of tho party
and denounced as n radical. For
11 time, tho enemies of
Grant woro euro Rawlins controlled
him; when Rawlins died, Washburn was
supposed to have something to do with
managing tho figure head of tho re
publican party, as Grant was called by
tome; theu public opinion gavo the
credit of his management to this and
that man. Manager after manager wa
disposod of and still Grant kept
tho even tenor of bin way, until tho
genoral opinion was that Morton con
trolled mm leu mm by tho noso was
entitled to tho credit of making him
walk in tho paths of political success.
Morton too, began to bcliovo th'iB ;
and with General Logan attempt
ed to lead the president
among financial pitfalls and induce
him to Consent to inflation. Ho ic
fused ; thoy threatened ; ho smiled, and
is now engaged in crushing them and
all their adherents as ho crushed
Greeley, Sumner, Sehurz and tho lib
erals who followed them. Ho will
never again allow "Morton to put that
in 5" and, as for Logan, ho will with
out doubt, destroy that gentleman's
usefulness in tho republican party. It
ii a significant fact that already tho
managing radical politicians of this
state, overjwhoin Logan lately had
great power, aro turning thoir backs
upon their former leader, and arc
shouting for tho president.
Wo do uot know a re
publican in Southorn Illinois
who is openly in favor of Sena
tor Logan in his financial conflict with
tho president certainly not ouo of tho
influential republican can now bo in
duced to say ho is a Logan man. Even
Maj. Munn, who followed Gen. Logau
with great dovotcdnoss for inauy years
who woro his hair as tho general
woro his; cultivated moustaohes of tho
out of tho general's, and on tho stump
.ruaruu wiui uio general's voico, used
tho general's gestures and spoko the
words tho geueral dictated, slyly sneord
ut tho senator and is loud in praising
tho president. For Mr. Clements,
Senator Logan's dutiful henchman
the president's friends have tho utmost
contempt, and only tho president cau
induoo them to support him for re-elec
tion this fall.
itr lit a -
no nave uenovcu lor years that
Grant waa a groat man in peace as well
8 in war, and the more we sec of him
the strongor this opinion becomes. Ah
rwljUcun ho was uot
Douglas; ho haa as strong a hold upon
hit admirers M.Clay had on his ; ho is
as inflexibla as Calhouu, and, lias all
th pluck; of Johnson. Danger
out to ' tho public wel
fare bo may U wroug in his polit .
ioal affiliations wo know him to bo
but wo doubt that lie i tbo nin-
bilious and daricerous man ho lias
been pronounced: and wo know that
any other republican prcsiueuv uu,u
havo wandered off into moro pornicious
policioa than ho has. Tho party
opposed to Grant and tho radicals
Qbght to succeed, but it will not aid
tho opposition in their effort to got in
to power to donounco Grant as a fool.
If they arc wiso thomsolvos thoy will
giyo him credit for great ability, aid
manage their campaign accordingly.
MUNN AND CLEMENTS.
Majok Munn'a friends aro anxious
that ho shall bo tho republican candi
dal for congress in thin district, and
an effort; Urbominafc him will proba
bly bo made. Tho few friouds of Mr.
Clemonts who say anything about this
movomout, nsscrt that tho usages of
tho party entitled him to a nomination
for a second term. To this, Major
Munn'a friends reply that Mr. Clem
enla is, in tho first place, a cypher in
tho.houso, nud, in tho second placo,
tint fold aftor tho ignh'fatuut of in
flation has pinned his fortunes to
Senators Logan and Oglesby and is en
deavoring to bring discredit upon tho
administration ; that, therefore, ho is
not entitled to rc-nomination and
ought to bo retired. To tho threats of
the scattering Clements men,
that tho great displcasuro of
Messrs. Logan Si Co. will bo visited upon
them, the Munnitcs respond, that thoso
gentlemen havo about reached tho ond
of their tether that they threatened to
romove Mr. Gcorgo Fisher from tho of
fice of survoyor of th'iB port, because ho
has persistently, from tho commence
ment of tho financial discussion, oppos
od inflation, but that thoy did not do so,
becaupo thoy could not; that tho Munu
men will tako tho conscouoncos of
standing steadfastly by a republican
president, who is faithfully adhering
to republican pledges made again and
again in Btato and national platforms, in
congress, from tho stump and through
tho press. And thus tho controversy
stands at tho present writing.
In justice to Major Munn wo should
say, bo has had nothing to do with the
inauguration of this movomont in Iub
interest ; ho declares ho is satisfied with
his present position, and that
policy requires the ronomina-
tiou of Mr. UlonienU that ho
is not and will not bo a candidato lor
congress. Wo havo no doubt ho is
honest in making these declarations
that ho means what ho Bays ; but being
invited to run for congress is so much
like being invited to drink on a hot
or cold day tho invitation
can bo refused only with tho
greatest difficulty ; it is there
foro probably that Major Munn
will, if the surrouudings aro favorable,
bo liko Julia when sho was wood by
Don Juan, consent while saying: "No.'
Mr. Pope, who is really tho porson
of modest moin who controls, without
1 seeming to do so, tho republican party
I of tu8 district, is very circumspect in
his utterances ; ho is closo as an oyster,
but there la tho dovil in li is sly eyo ;
ho is a strong veto man, nu uncompro
mising anti-iullationist, nnd bolicvcs if
tho issue wcro boldly made boforo the
peoplo in this district the prcaidont
would be sustained by a largo majority.
Whothor ho will concludo to have
this issuo mado in the republi
can party of Egypt remains to bo seen.
At prcsont his voico is for peace, but
wc arc sure his thought aro on war
iutont, and it is just possible ho may
conoludo to slaughter Mr. .Clements.
If ho should conoludo to do it beforo
tho republican convention, Major
Muuu, will, without doubt, bo tho re
publican nominco for congress in
this district ; if he determines to not
do so until aftor tho nomination has
been made, tho opposition candidate
will bo elected ; if ho concludes, at tho
flattering instigation of Senator Logau,
to not rhetorically tako Mr. Clement's

THE WIDOW'S PHOTE8T.
One of tho saddest things that ever
camo uuder ray notice (said tho bank
er's clerk) was there in Corning during
tho war. Dan Murnhv enlistod as a
private, atid fought very bravely. Tho
boys all liked him; and when n wound,
by-and-by, weakened him down till
carrying a musket was too heavy work
for him, they clubbed togother uud
iixed lam as a Hutlur. IIo mado
monoy then, and neut it always to his
wno to bank tor him. olio was a
washor and ironor,i and know enough
by hard cxporionco to koop money
when ehe cot it. Sho didn't waste a
ponny. On tho contrary, sho began to
got miserly as nor bank account grew.
Sho griovod to pait with a cent, poor
creature, fer twleo in hor hard-work
ing lifo she had known what it was to
be hungry, oold, friendless, sick and
without a dollar in tho world,
and sho had a haunting dread of
suffering so again. Well, at last
Don died; and tho boys, in testi
mony of their esteem nnd rospeot for
him. tclecraphod to Mrs. Murphy to
know if sho would liko to havo him
embalmed and sent homo ; when you
know tho usual custom was to dump a
poor dovil liko him into a shallow nolo,
and then inlorin his friends what had
bceomoot him. Mrs. Murphy jumped
to tho conclusion that it would only
cost two or thrco dollars to ombalm
hor dead husband, rind' bo sho telo
graphod "Yes." It was at tho "wako"
that tho bill for embalming arrived
nnd was prosentcd to tho widow.
Sho uttorod a wild, sad wail that
pierced ovory heart, and said : "Sivin-ty-foivo
