"Vi: aro soiry for IUndall. Tho Grant
reception in l'Jiiladelphia was too much for
him, and ho hied him to New Yoik,
and there, in company with S. J. T., wept
over tho "obsequies to American liberties "

fear that the obsequies to the favorite Dem
ocratic ward the Fourth in his own Con
gressional district, to take placo next fall,
will givo him moro real cause for mourning.
TiluUtleafrraW, one of the very ublo
journals of tho Stuto of New York, has clnd
itself in a new nud exceedingly comely
typographical dress for tho holidays. Tho
Herald is a model journal always able,

judgment in political discussion but uni
formly frank, outspoken, honest and courte
ous in its utterances qualities that com
mand universal respect hi journalism. AVo

There is a movement on foot iu our
deiuly beloved liourbou Congress to ro-cs-tablish
tlie&talo bank systems. This is to
bo dono by a repeal or modification of a
certain section of the National Dank act.
Of course the end of (he movement will be
not only to abolish tho National hanks, to
which no seiious ohjectiou can be oITeicd if
it is delayed until tho proper time, but
also to wipo out the greenbacks. Tho idea

But wo fail to sco that this dcmorall
7,a I lou exists auywhero save iu tho
imaginations of thoso who prato so
much about it. The truth Is, tho Ameri
can pooplo have a right toexultovcrthofact
that ono of their own iiumbor .1 plain, un
titled cltlzenjftfcllow-sovJTcignwhcio all ji
ST.Verolgus has becu exalted to tho roccp
tion of high liomngo, nud that "continents
" hnvo stood uncovered in his presence," for
iu his exaltation they aro also elevated and
complimented. Ami while they indulge in
this exultation not n truo man among them
will hrentho nny aspiration other than tlint
which Is born of n pure and manly gratifica
tion that tho principles of self-government
have been thus recognized by Its enemies.
A stl' I'll) Opposition writer, affrighted nt
the bugbear of nu " Empire under Grant,"
declares that " it is not GllANT we havo to
"fear, nor the llepuhllcau party, but tho
" people kick of both, without whom tho
"conspirators aro not of enough ncconut to
"be feared or hated." If this declaration
mcius anything at all it is that tho writer
believes that the American people not tho
Republican party, mind you aro not to be
trusted with tho power of self-government
for fear they will destroy themselves, over
throw the institutions upon which that self
governing power is based, ami hand tho
country over to monarchy. Tho plain
logic of nil this is that tho nnti-GRANT
men, of which the writer quoted is one,
should bo eudowed with vicarious powcis
to attend to tho wants of the peoplo and
supervise our governmental affairs to tho
exclusion of all thoso who may differ witli
theui'rcgardiugour next President. In tho
language of Dundreary-: " What
" nonsense !"
Tho situation in Maiuo is not so serious
ns many people seem to think, although it
is fraught with anxious forebodings. Tho
simple truth is that Garcelonism, ns tho
now fraud movement is called, amounts to
nothing raoro nor less than a " blufl'." When
tho Republicans get ready, as wo are ns
snred they will, to settle or camp down in
tho Stato-houso and assert their lights,
bneked up by a sufficient volunteer armed
force, iu tho organization of the Legislature,
Mr. Garcelon, who is aping " Governor "
Niciiollh, of Louisiana, will take to his
heels in disgraceful flight. But, oven if his
revolutionary hordes should got together
outsido of tho Slatc-houso nud orgnnizo an
other Stoto Government, ns was dono in
Loulsiaun tluco years ngo, there Is every
reason to beliovo that each a fraudulent
assumption of power would fall of recogni
tion here in Washington, nud that tho Ad
ministration iu determining which of tho
two State Governments should be recog
nized, tho Garcelon usurpation or tho ono
to bo erected by tho legitimalo Repub
lican majority of tho Legislature, would
reject tho former with scorn and con
tempt. Iu short, it appears from recent
advices that Senators Hamlin and Blaine,
together with other lcadlug Republicans of
the Stale, have reached tho conclusion that
forbearance is no longer n virtue and that
further temporizing with tho seditious Gar
cslonitcs must be abandoned. They havo
accordingly prepared themselves tomeelthls
nttempted revolution, which assumes to bo
clothed with tho " color and form of law,"
witli nu adequate forco to ovcrcoiuo nud
squelch it at the very threshold of its fruition.
This is as it should be, nud every loyal man
in tho country will cry Amen i And no man
of ordinary sense will protend to nssunie
or foar that tho outcome of nil this will bo
the successful inauguration of a Republican
State administration, and that, too, without
the shedding of anything moro solid than
GAitcai.os's tears, or tho upheavul of nuy
thiug more serious than hUalghs of (hagrlu
nt tho defeat of his infamous and cowardly

Our telegraphic dispatches convey tho
impoitaut iufoimatlou that OUKAV has
thrown up the sponge and Informs tlio
Government that ho despairs of surrender
ing tho murderers of Mtsuicrcn and his as
sistants, nud is ready lo join the nuny in
mnking war upon Douoi.abs nnd his party.
Tills is n virtual postponement of tho mat
ter until Spilng, as it is useless to make
war Iu that cold and desolate region during
tlio rigors of winter. In Oils condition of
affairs Is fully oxposed the utter folly of tho
taffy policy of (ho Indian Department,
which interposed to prevent the army from
punishing these offenders promptly and
witli merited sevority. Tho experiment of
tlio Indlnu Department to secure justice
nnd punishment by treaty has been tried
and failed, nud tho country Is Informed that
It must awult tlio coining of spring,
or tho plonsuie of those savages, before
tho punishment of thoso murders, If ovor,
cnii bo iietoiiipllshcd. Tho Department is
cither utteily Ignorant of the Indian char
acter, or has been far too credulous in titist
ing I lie tribe which has been guilty of this
cold-bloododmnssacroln lis efforts to securo
tho guilty parties for trial nud punishment.
For nil this the Secretary of the Iutoiibr
mny not Ihh directly responsible, but ll Is
clearly tho result of a blnudor which pre
vented tho nrmy from pursuing tho offonders
and securing suminnry punishment.
Tho result of thjs penco policy of the
Interior Department will bo regarded by
many ns n strong nnd unanswerable nrgu
incut lu faor of banding tho management
of our Indian tribes over to tho Wnr De
partment. Tho new head of tho Wnr
portfolio understands the Indian chnractcr
far better than tho Secretary of tho Interior,
nnd tho only hopo of n prompt and success
ful mljustmcnt of tho Indian problem seems
lo icsldo with a change of policy and man
ngoinont, such ns Is contcmplnted in tho
piopoicd transferor the Indlnu Burcnti to
tho Wnr Department Wo must havo se
curity for the whites on our Indian front
iers, nnd tho present policy docs not eccm
to vouchsafe It. Congress should proceed
early to repair the blunders recently com1
mlttcd in Colorado.

Tho Now York custom-house is as vigilant
as Argus with the hundred eyes and as tena
cious as a dovll-flsli. When the steamer Britan
nia arrived In Now York a wick ngo ouo of
tlio inspectors noticed n young man leading a
pug dog down the gang plank. It was an em
bodiment of canluo ugliness and Innocenco
that had been sent over to a New Yorker by
nn Knglish friend as a sort of privileged pas
senger. Tho inspector began to mako In
quiries about tho clog, aud tho dog-leader be
gun to mako Invidious remarks about tho
meanness of tho Government and the cheek of
its custom agents. As a natural result tho
pug dog was seized nnd hold for $3 duty. Tho
owner came aftor him, paid tho tariff and led
the pug away; but that was not tho cud of tho
runttoi. There was no mention mndo of the
dog in tho steamer's manifest, and the captain
found great difficulty in getting a clearanco
for his return trip, Ho was finally allowed to
go, aftor being fined $100 for his share In the
