rTbe inteieitci
ttoo waxes wattnor ui winner A
few weeks ago iho wholrt conutry
North and South appparej ixipremeh
icdifferent but everywhere intereai ir
awakening and very likaly by the tiuit
the oomioatitig aixctublo
io June the whole oouutry will be up
to red hot heat
On the Republican ride the content
fcr the nomination is manifestly be
tween Grant and Blaine with Sherman
Etili in the field Grants chances are
decidedly the best and we have no
donbt but that the nomination will be
given to bim if be wants it and we are
perfectly well satisfied that he wants
it We also believe that Grant will
be the candidate easiest beaten by the
Democrats before the people but the
hardest one to keep heat In other
words if Gen Grant is beaten before
the people he i t the one Republican
who that a Democratic Con
gress hasi unfairly counted Inta out
can command Northern to
seat himself in the presidential chair
giving us the alternative of civil war
or 6UDmibion The Republican or
pans have commenced already to put
forth the charge that the rebel brig
adiers in Congress intend to count
out the Republicans By the time the
Presidential election excitement reach
eg red bot heat the inases of the Re
publican party will be fully imbued
with this charge and thereby cady to
sustain Gen Grant
On this Tiew however there is a
elicht riffle in favor of the renomtnn
tion of Hayes but the great Colossus
Grant will doubtless over ride it The
Frankfort Yeoman says that a member
of the cabinet has let the cat out of
the bag with jegard to the Hayes
Echetnc lollops
Now in the event of a close vote In
the co mlfi Presidential election and ft
rcprtitton of the scenes of J87 77 iu the
counting of it jou can readily see what
an advantage it would be to the Republi
can party were the then incumbent of tbe
PreaidentUl office the sneo ssful candi
date The rextilt coul i be declared in the
manner provided by the Constitution and
tbe functions of the Executive be contin
ued without a seconds ad tnUrim
The inraiiins of this i very easily
interpreted it is nothing moic than
an announcement that 00 obstacle mnt
be in the way to Republican
that the Irand t of 187U 77 muit be
repeated and greater outrasf perpe
trated if uece ury to he reteutiuu of
Republican power
Our fear is that if the Republicans
play thi game boldly that they will
win for bs it known that the South is
id no condition to resent a wrong bow
ever great or grievous and wo dont
believe that tbe Northern Democrats
will resent
Turning from the Republican side
wo find tbe Democratic list for the
Presidential nomination swelling some
day by day We clas them as follows
aod consider their chances for tbe
nomination about in the order we name
them Tilden Unknown Seymour
Tburraan Bayard Judge Fields Da
vid Davis Gen ilancock Speaker
Randall and Hendricks We believe
that Tildcns supporters can force bis
notuitatio if they think it the best
policy to do so and we believe it is in
the poweFof the Tilden people to
bring about the entiie lurmouy of the
party and we begin to believe that
Tilden will not permit his name to be
pressed unless general harmony is tbe
rutc
Next to Tilden in the chances for
the Democratic nomination is the man
who can bust conciliato aod harmonize
tbe Tilden and anti Tildcn Democrats
Who this man is is Unknown Some
Eay it is Judge Fields somo say it is
Mr Speaker Randall some Gen Han
cock some one and some another
Whoever it may be we are for bim
If the Democrats shall exeroiso the
wifdom and patriotism to harmonize
and shall make a nomination that will
unite all the elements of the party we
Eball entertain good hopes but if tboy
dont if they persist in personal
wrangles 4Good bye John
The Texas delegation to the Chica
go Convention will go uninspected

Why Grant
Why is it that the Republican mas
chine is so tied to the candidacy of
Grant that its leaders seeing clearly
thpgiin thfln
ird term idea seem yet constrained
to go on to his nomination in spite oi
tbe stern protest of at least a powerful
minority At any other period in the
history of the Republican feparty such
adherence to any man as the sole hope
of the party would have been irapor i
ble There are more reasons than one
why it is true at this time Io the
fir t place they have that which they
affect not to have a most abiding faith
that for all tho surface indications of
1879 ami for the clamor raUed in the
extra se sion they are in a most preca
riuus pjitiou as a party with success
only barely pus ible by the most dos
peratt and adventurous policy by a
bold and almost revolutionary stroke
They are in uo po itiuu Io dabble in
liliL ralit they must win if at all by
a bold aggressive policy on the idea
that the Uuion and the interests ol the
country are in extreme peril They
are as well aware as the Detaucrats
that the vote ol 1879 left then in a
hopeless minority in a half dozen

WASHINGTON LETTER
The Tariff Wrangle Much Ado hut
Nothing Done Unparliamentary
Language The Commissioner of
Patents Resigns
From our Regular Correspondent
Washington March HO 1880
The best half of this week has been
consumed or wor e wasted in u fruit
less wrangle between the Freo Traaern
and Proteetiooisls There has been
much fillibusteriog aud a development
of bad feeling between the two parties
aud even between individual members
ol the same party The contending
parties wete led by Messrs Blackburu
and Girfield Tbe deidlock was bro
ken ou Thur day by a sort of com pro
mise which will enable both the bel
liferents to claim a viotory but to the
unbiased looker on xecms dimply a
drawn battle The Protectionists and
Free Traders as was shown by a test
vote do not divide on party lines Dis
cussion has been sileuocd lor this ses
sion but it wil doubtless be a burn
ingqueslion in the future The House
as at present constituted is a Protec
tion House The same may be said
of the Senate The Speaker of the
House is a high tariff man But how
will it be io two years when a new
census has given the West a prepon
derance in the National Legislature
During the controversy over Mr
Townsends Tariff bill Speaker Ran
dall has been tho recipient of many
uncomplimentary criticisms by his freo
trade Democratic colleagues Notably
among those who denounced him was
Mr Blackburn of Kentucky
Tie long debate in Congress over
tho olrclion laws has ended more sat
isfactorily than seemed possible a year
ago The decision of the Supreme
Court has had much to do io settling
the matter The Democrats in tho
House have now passed an amendment
to the law giving the appointment of
theso depultos to tbe Untied Stales
Circuit Judges and providing that in
stead of being all of oco political par
ty they -hall be selected in equal num
ber from both parlies and -hall be
persons ol good moral character and
well known rc idents of the voting
precincts iu which their duties arc to
be performed it is announced very
positively that this hill if passed b
the Senate will be approved by the
President

From tbe Courier Journal
The report of the Mississippi Rivei
Commi sioo to the Secretary of War h
a very voluminous ducument too loug
for us io print with the present pressufe
on our columns and we will therefore
condense its important features ami
present the conclusions of the Com-
mision
The work assigned io the Misi
pt River Commission was to take
direction of the surveys uf thj
river consider anjd maJui flBj
permanent yMdcafe and derpe
channel aud protect the banks sonslo
facilitnto nivigaiinn prevent dt struci
ive flotds an I promote and f iciliaie

to report specifically upon the prncii
cibility and probable cost nf thejetl
levee nod outlet systems of improve
ment The Comuiis ion organized Ih i
August aud began to con ider the sur
veys then in progress The Mississ
ippi river above the mouth of the
Ohio was found to luve been cover d
by surveys then draning to a clo e
and the attention of the Coramis ion
was directed tun re especially to the riv
er between Cairo aud the head of the
passes and the survey has been proe
cutcd in the most thorough and satis
factory manner and the work will be
extended to Memphis the present -ea
son Close observations have b n
made as to chauges in the riverbed at
different stages of water the kind of
material fortiing or moving along the
bed the figure and movemensol sand
waves slope of the water surface the
discharge anil velocity ol the current
To continue thnso valuable inveliga
S200000 will bo required tlur
ing the coming fiscal year
The Commissioners proceed to the
oonxideratiou of the three systems of
improvement The outlet system is
comdemned as positively detrimental to
navigation and about the same po
sition is taken which the most promi
nent engineers who have investigated
the subject occupy A child can easi
ly show without any hydraulic engi
neering skill the absurdity of such a
plan the injurious effects of which are
familiar to every one who has lived on
the lower river
J 5jS 5J f t 3jC
Tho amount required for the re
pair of existing levees is 2020000 I
As to tbe definite plan tor river im
provement the Commissioners base
their conclusions upon the tact that
uniformity of width secured by
tractionjjncreaseshe velocity tjCthe
current atui consequently mcreaags the
erosion of the river bed at 6hoal placo
thus securing a uniform depth It is
showo that on the lower Mississippi
shoals and bars producing insufficient
depth and had navigation are always
aceiimpitiied by u low water width ex
ceeding 3 1100 feet but hat wherever
the river does not exceed th it width
there i a good channel and that had
navigation invariably accompanies a
wide low river water way and good
navigation a narrow one This im
portsnt fact is tho product ol actus
observation aod there is tin theori mg
about it The Commissioners hen
lore conclude that the proper cour r
is to scour nut and miiuliiii a chati
