This has been a bad session for the

ton-hole senators and members to re
member their "little bills." The
president waa at the capital nearly all

great is the anxiety of those inter

he had signed. Last night the galler

h'Uj pmonal political friends as a mat.
ter of political expediency it being
urgtd that if he did not sign tho bill
and thus "do something" for the coun
try, the democrats would sweep the
field next fall. President Grant
never acU -wUhoul a motive nover
losing an opportunity to advance hu
UteresU personal and politi
cal and lie threw Wmielf into the
arms cf the hard money men for inter
ested motives. Now he finds that ho
has alienated a portion of his parly

dtstu to conciliate them ho signs the
compromise bill which lias nothing
in-it, -built will do to go before the
people with and aay we .have dono

bcen.taicn to the administration bosom.
Senator Fcnton differed with Gou.
Grant en questions of principlo and
nothing! has sinco occurred to change
cither ol their positions, and while hid
opinion of Gen. Grant's uufitness for
the position of president has not
changed, h has H3 personal difference

will breath with more freedom than for

Secretary of the treasury Sawyer on

vote but aj it required two thirds was
duicated. It certainly has a queer
look as tboru has been no official report

found guilty. Mr. licck said that if

2. That the maintenance inviolate of
