A Times reporter Visited Colonel Dyer's
office yesterday, wheru lie foutid Jhe col
onel surrounded by a swurui br reortcrs
and nowfpaper correspondents. Colonel
Dyer sat fu.thoir.inidst unmoved and, a
thu sequel showed, with no Intention of
moving his tongue. He was lu an ex
cellent humor and talked about anything
except the sublect the reporters felt most
interest in. However, his failure to lur
nUb uew did not proceed from churlish
ness or an indisposition to accommodate
the reporter, but simply, as he said, he
cause lie had jiothlug to tell. Ho dialed
tho story set afloat during tho afternoon
to thu effect that hi) purposed tendering
his resignation because of General Hen
derson' removal. When asked whpni he
nuroosed aunolntluir to succeed General
Henderson he replied i that ho could not
decide before toniorrow (to-day.)
The Timet reporter asked if the prose

Col. Dyer emphatically replied, "No sir;

The following extract, from Mr. Hen

tains the "reflections upon the Presi
dent." to which reference U made In the
dispatches froni the Attomy General :
This is the' blot unou our trovernuieiit.
that It is iKisslble lor such things to ex-
ll. l liev cotilil not exist iu Kuiriami.
Kriiird, or any other, civilized govern
ment, but arc iK'ctillar to our boasted re
public. It Is party, party, party that
damn our country. He who has the
nervo to resist the behests of party Is
worthy of more credit than the bravest
of old Itoiuaii soldier. Under
the name of party every frond and In
famy within the ratigo af possibilities
are rpetratcd. It I to be hoped aud
prayed that the time Is coming when a
man who lias the imperious force of char
acter to resist the dictates or party will
bo looked up to as a hero. But wu may
go to the bottom corruption may feast
n all our institutions, and our nation
may decay and fall before we learn this
grand truth. I respect party when It l
compoA-d of honeu men, organized lor
houe.'t purposes ! but when it Is com
posed ot men baudwd together to perpe
trate frauds upon tho government, or to
'rve the peisniml ends of its leaders, then
away with it. I'll none ot it.
VHmt rlifht had Babcock to irit to
