The New York Tribune declares
that the recommendation of Mr.
Horace Maynard by the Radical
electoral college of this State, for a
position in Gen. Grant's Cabinet, is
"unwise and indecorous."
Much is said every day about
what Gen. Grant will do how he
will bringpeaceto the country. This
is before the disappointment that
always follows the distribution of
the spoils. .Wait until Ac ninety and
nine disappointed turn their backs
on "Washington muttering curses
loud and deep at their defeat, and
then theharmony of the Republicans
will be tested.
A Radical letter-writer, who ad
vocated not only the increase of the
President's salary, but the building
of a new house for him, said Mrs.
Grant had declared that she would
not live in the White House. She
has probably changed her mind, as
we sec it stated that Gen. Grant's
residence in Washington has- been
sold to Mityor Bowen, of that citj,
Wo are asked in a communica
tion, to state wholhor tho Judgt
rattci-son- who is making hinisolf
conspicious as a Radical leader, and
endeavoring to " out-Herod Herod''
in proscription and viudictiveiic3, and
who attacks Ex-Governor Footc. Son
ator Powlcr ami Secretary of State
Fletcher, and "who, while Circuit
Judc, left tho litigants in his district
in the lurch and engaged as an altor
ncy to prosecute Judge Frazicr before
the Senate, is the same man who held
a contract from the Confederate author
itics in 1SG1 to altar shot-guns and
and rifles into efFectivc arms to shoot
" Yankees" with ? Is he the same
nun, who, to avoid service in the field
during Confederate rule in and about
Kingston, East Tennessee, secured
the appointment of Confederate Post
master, and as a matter of course
took the necessary oath? The qucr
ist says he has heard these things.
and that if true, they explain the
bitterness of his hostilitv towards his
former friends. ,
In answer, we would say, that the
charge that Judge Patterson was
Confederate armorer was made in this
paper in tho summer of 1SG0, and i
it was ever denied, we do not rcmcm
ber tho fact. As to the Postmaster
ship, we havo no knowledge. W
thought that it was generallv under
stood that Judge Patterson's ' loy
alty" did not pass the ordeal of 1801
2 without a considerable smell of th
rchollion on its garments.

Some ono asks the Cincinnati
Commercial when the recently
elected members of Congress will
tnko tho oath of offico, and that
paper states " that they will do so
at tho first meeting of Congro
after March 4 and that - if there
is no extra session of Congress next
summer, they will not be called
upon to bo sworn in until the lirt
in December of next year." It is
rather singular that the Commercial
should have forgotten that its party
has mado tho sessions of Congress
perpetual. A bill was passed at tho
second session of tbo thirty-ninth
Congress, and approved January
22, 1SC7, tbo first section of which
provides as follows :
" That in addition to the present regu
lar time of the meeting of Congress
there shall bo a meeting of tho fortieth
Congress of tho United States and of
each successivo Congress thereafter at 1
o'clock it. on the 4th day of March tho
day on which tho term begins for which
the Congress is elected, except that when
the 4th of March occurs on Sunday tho
meeting shall take plaeo at the same
hour on the nextsucceodmg day."
The forty-first Congress will
meet on the 4th of March next, the
dnv on which' Gen. Grant will
bo inaugurated. It is uncertain as P

The motion to quash the indict
mont for treason against Jefferson
Davis raised a. question which ovi
dently has given the counsel for
the government a good deal of per-
ploxity. Their attempt to combat
it, after time for consultation and I emough to satisfy theso namcless in
studv crantedbv tho court, is weak. I fiiTrifliinls tbnt. bn will do to trust.

of that amendment holds nil nets

establish tho independence of tho
UonieUcrato States of America as

a M)ccial punishment, which is dis-

ment is not a punishment ivill not

tho United States, is that deprivation
of such a privilege is penal in its
character and intent. It might have

THE KAST AND WEST.
Thero is no great amount of
cordiality oxisting betweon the
East and the "West. Tho Boston
Journal, with biting sarcasm, says
the East ought to havo the next
Speaker of the IIouso of liopro
sontativos, since tho West has got
almost every thing else. The "West
has got the lion's share, including
tbo President, Vico President,
Chief Justice, and Lieutenaut Gen
oral, and a host of other offices. The
Philadelphia North American dc
mends more stringent protection for
Pennsylvania, doclaring that the re
sult of the presidential election is a
declaration by the people in favor
of tho doctrino of protection enter
tained in that State. On the other
hand, tho Chicago Tribune, a lead
ing Radical organ f the North
" Wo have lonir been warned that tho
concealed purpose of a fraction of tho,
Kenublican partv m Pennsylvania and
other parts of tho East was to make tho
election of Grant tho occasion for asscrt
inc that tho tariff policy of tho last few
years a policy adopted under the urgont
want ol money to support our armies in
the fiold had been endorsed bv the
Americm people as a measure of peace,
anil that there would be a concerted en
deavor to commit all who bear tho Re
publican name to the support of protec-
tion, unuer pain oi inai lor ucieny aiu
expulsion from tho party. Tho warning
was correct. Tho iron interest of Pcnn
sylvania, of which IhoJToi'lh American
has been tho mouth piece, issues its man
date, and now the struggle bosrins."
"Tho West docs not ask for freo trade
as tho robbers falsely charge. Sho ro
cognizes and submits to the necessity of
protection, so far as it ii an incident of a
tanll lor revenue, but uoyonu inai sno
will not eo. Shohasborno with unex
ampled patienco tho demands mado upon
her resources; but now that peace lias
corao sho will make her power of resis
tance felt if there aro any who uaro to
nush her further. And sho will care
little for the consequences if her wrath
is aroused. We toll theso conspirators
arainst public prosperity that they have
cot their lonir lingers just as far into the
pockets ol our larmers as iney win oe
permitted to thrust them. If they want
tho whole of the fabric that thoy havo
raised under the encouragoment of un
just law torn down over their heads, lot
them mako the article that wo quote mo
rule of their political action. Between
no tariff and moro protection she will
not long hesitato which to choose."
The battles of tho North and tho
South have been forgot; those of
tho East and the West have yet to
come off. They may be bloodless
but they will be violent, and waged
with the spirit of men scoking es
cape from robbers, for tho North
west has been sorely plundered by
New England and Pennsylvania.

"While tho politicians are sorely per
1 pleied as to what will be the domestic
policy of Gen. Grant's administration in
niters and rebels, there aro two impor-
I tant questions upon which we leel autnor

These aro tho ono term principle for the
President of tho United States and
universal suffraeo. Wc learn fiom tho

is emphatically in favor of so amending

therein the President to ono terra, and to

nearly all Republicans havo that
a uniformity in regard to suffrage
might prevail throughout all tho
States of tho Union, and that tho
ono term principle, as to the Presi
dency, were also incorporated in
tho constitution." The drift of
events seems to pomt to universal
snffrago as a measure in much favor
with Gon. Grant. It has been
prominently brought forward and
urged by the men to whom Grant
owes bis nomination, and this would
likely havo considerable infiuenco
in shaping bis course. The Herald
argues iu favor of this course from
tho fact that tho elections havo
shown that there can bo no sucb
Hung as Radical or negro supre
macy in tho South. Tho Herald
thinks that ' the negro vote
is subject to the contrplling
Southern white element, and
hence, oveir under universal ne
gro suffrage, wo may expect tliat
by tho year 1870 tho whole
South will be, in tho hands of the
Democracy, reconstructed, and that
thus we shall have a now Southern
balance of power which will con
trol and decido tho presidential
election of 1S72." Thero is a good
deal of forco in this view, and it
may have its weight with those who
aro urging universal suffrage.
Whatever mav bo tho viows of
(Jen. Grant upon tho question, fiomo
of his most ardent supporters are
zealous in their effort to create a
" public sentiment" in favor of Con
trress so amending the constitution
as to make suffrage universal and to
apply to all elections, State as well
as national. Tho aslnngton Jlc
publican, which is as decidedly a
Radical sheet as there is in the
country, and gave Gon. Grant an
efficient support in the late canvass,
takes tho following ground on this
"It is now certain that Congress, early
in the session, which begins next Monday,
will paSs a constitutional amendment
resulatinc suffrage in all the States;
and we trust it will be uniform, and
when it is adopUd, that it
will apply equally in aU the States.
Anything less than this win do a mocK
erv and a sham. If anything appertain
ing to this sulfrago question or to the
laws reeulatini; tho political Irancbise is to
bo left for tho States to determine, by lo
cal and State law, then everything should
bo left to them. 1 heee half-way measures,
which some propose to incorporate into
the constitution, will never give satisfac
tion, because thoy settlo nothing. It is
timo that American statesmanship rose
to the dignity and grandeur of the
occasion. It should meet the demands
of the hour, and grapple with questions
liko this we are now considering and
settle them at once, and settle them right.
There must bo no compromise, no
hesitating, halfway policies, which
alwavs work t mischievous ends, as
nothing is settled by tins sort ol tinker.
