this, there n:ust be no hanging
back.' The people along the line
must do their whol duty. Let
the work of local subscriptions
go on. Each man who can con
tribute anything mi money or ma
terials should freely do it. This
course will inspire increased con
fidence with Eastern capitalists.
A long pull, a strong pull, and
pull altogether, will now certainly

Selling Powder to the En-..
. emy. ,
The Germans, both at home
and abroad, are most indignant
on learning that -Grant, instead
of being their best friend, as he
professed, has been detected in
the act f selling arms and am
munition to the enemy.. While
the war- between Franco and
Prussia was in progress, and more
especially when its result was no
longer a matter of doubt, the
President expressed himself with
such zeal on the subject that, in
stead of being Scotch in his de
scent, as l.e claims, he was sup-,
posed to be a genuine son of
"Faderland." i Bat-' it' now turns
out that, during all.,' this while,
he and his friends were rnnninsr
the Government' bffices day and
night in the preparation of car
fridges uto kill the d d Dutch,'
as : Ulysses is reported to have
said when in hi3 cups.V Consid
ering, the .vw eighty siifiport they
gave him in his election, it is by
no means a - matter, ot surprise
that they should resent this du
plicity; . and - if they now carry
ont their intention of withdraw
ing their votes from him in the
event of hi9 re homltiation, no
one can deny that it will be an
act of deserved retaliation and
well inflicted punishment.
It is a mistake in the Radical
leaders to suppose that the Gov
ernment of the United. Stutes has
no other excuse for existing than
that of being useful to the Radi
cal party, v . '" " .
V ; It is a mistake in Grant and
his associates to snppose.that the
rank and file of the Republican
party will be satisfied to have
that party used solely for 'the
purpoee of enriching rings. 7 i
, It is a mistake .' of the ' protec
tionists to suppose that farmers
earu money merely for the pleas
ure of having it lakenfrcm them
by monopolists. ' .!
It is a mistake that should be
remorselessly crushed out where-
ever it exists, to suppose that of
fices, are established for; the ad
vantage of office-holders, and not
for the good of the people.
2FIf the German press in
dicates the views of the German
voters, Grant will have little sup
port from them. . Nearly every
German paper of influence has
pronounced ogainst him. -
