We recollect distinctly that dur
ing the administration of President
Lincoln, to deny the absolute pow
r of the President, or "govern
ment," as be was called, was to be
guilty of unmitigated high treason-.
He had the right to do anything he
chose, and Congress had no ether
duty to perioral than to meet and
ratify his acta. Instead of being a
co ordinate branch of the govern
ment, the Executive was declared to
he the whole government. If there
was no warrant lor his assumptions
of power it the Constitution, a snb-
srvienl Congress was ready to
calve over bis stretches of arbitrary
power with the necessary legisla
tion. s that in fact the President
of the United Slates was as absolute
an autocrat as the Czar of Bussia.
He held alike the reins of civil and'
military power, and whom he would
be could raise un,' and whom be
would be ceuld put down, without
being acce-mriable, either to the laws
of the people. fii GafeuieV o Ulcere-
were merely hfs cferlfa, to whom he
would listen if he felt so disposed,
and whom he set adrift to suit his
OW& whims or convergence.
This was the ease from 1861 until
1885. Then came a change. When
by the death of Abraham Lincoln,
Andrew Johnson assumed the Ex
ecutive naH5e, tbefe tame a change
in the administration of tflo affaree
of government, and an "abont-facs'r
in Radical principles. The very
men who for. four years bad been"
inventing argument to show that
the President and the Government
were synonymous terms, and that it
was utterly impossible for the king
to dy wrong, were just as positive
in their declarations that the Presi
dent wns not only not tbe govern
ment, but was not even a respecta
ble part of it. He was a mere fig
tire head, who could do nothing
that Congress did not permit him
to do. Laws were enacted to pre
vent him-from having bis legal ad
visers in . a'armoiiy with bis views.
Every one of his clearly defined
constitutional prerogatives- were ta-i

attention of the leaders and
managers of the Republican party,
including General Grant, cannot b
too closely given to- the following
exhibit of the division ot the States
between the two parties, as indicat

Io abort, the Republican party
has too may cooks and too many
captains, toa many rival cliques,
and too many cliUtSing factions, and
it is od the road to ruin. It is rap-
idly using up its capital of General
Grant's popularity, and it is in a
fair way to swamp General Grant
in-1872. The party is doing noth
ing to strengthen the administra
tion; but everything to embarrass
and cripple it.- General Grant sav
ed the party in 1863, and baa saved
it io Coitgrt-ss benoofcrward till
IS72 ; but at the r.ita of its losses
this year it will in lBTlfbe com
pletely demolished. The f accesses
and prestige and power of Tamma
ny Hall, on the other band, have
inspired the democracy of the
whole country, and they seem to
have in New Tork city a base of
operations stronger than Washing
ton. Uno wonld think that toe lie
publican,, having carried through
their mission on the slavery ques
tion and tho negro questiou to the
cap sheaf of negro suffrage, are bea
ting aboot hither and tbitberlor
for some neur party1. We ktfo that
the old Eepufeicaa party, aftfcr Sn
ishing its mission, broke up in 1S24
on four Presidential candidates
Jackson, Adams, Crawford, and
Clay. The present BVpablieaa par--
ty, but Tor General Uranr m ine
White House, would surely go the
same way in 1872. They say that
Fentoc is meditating a bolt any
how, a la Van Buren, and that Gea
ry, of Pennsylvania, is hot on the
trail of the Iabor Reform party as
an Independent candidate.
At any rate, it these miserable
Republican feuds, petty jealousies,
smill personal revenges and sense
less aqnabble? are not stopped,

Ed. CovstRTATiTK In looking over
your synoptical report of Wr. Cooper's
feceht Thanksgiving Sermon, the a-
bove enquiry was strongly impressed
upon my mind. And without occupy
ing time and space to scrutinize the
whole philosophy and influence Of Ho
ly Days, and their habits and customs,
handed down to us front the Pagan ra
ces, and dark (fays ot the world's in
tellectual twilight, which, however it
may nave been in tue put, ia in our
time, undoubtedly, much more an oc
caaion of feasting and dissipation thaft
thanksgiving and prayer, allow me to
hastily glance at dogma prominently
put forth bf the speaker on that occa
sion, which, however ancient it may
bf, certain! should not continue to
darken the councils of the Teachers of
the afternoon of the Nineteenth Cen
tury. The speaker says, "Oxen and horses.
unlike men, always recognize in the
food and comforts they receive, their
master's hand, and evince their grati
tude when kindness is meted out to
them. They live their thanks to own
er sc master ii obedient toil ; and
here they teffch us that thanhsVa ing ia
much better than thanksgiving. Expres
sion of lifs is nothing. Heart tuurt feel
and life utter the grsrtefsl sentiment,
if Omniscience is to be satisfied,"
Thus the speaker seems to assert, or
at least implies, that there is apertou
power, or influence, whictr ailppJies
Tictflah; and raiment to man, indepen
dent of his own exertions, as man sup
plies food and shelter to cattle, and so
elearly and demonstrably, that man
should perceive aud recognise the fact,
aa clearly as aa ox might recognize a
fork-full of flay of basket of corn.
Vet, any msra Who darti to reason must
quickly perceive t3at the doctrine is
soperstitioci aftd false in fact, and
baneful and degrading ia its influence.
And I challenge aUy man to point his
finger to a single fact in his own exped
ience, though he be as old as the fa
bled JfetLuselah. which sustains such
doclrineay or justifies suh conclu
sion. But does some one say, man ought

new la,-or principle, instituted for bis

the old laws, existing from enternitie's
morn, and an application, through hu
man exertion, of their Omnipotent
principles. To illustrate :
Forty years ago there were hundreds
of acres of land in tfie State of Pedn

"the commons" and "barren,' w"hica

Cheaiical Science had demonstrated;
that the elements of vegetable growth
might be artificially applied to this
barren surface, and hence their own
ers shipped OuaBft and Bone-dust from
distant isles, discovered and quarried
the Limestone rock, mirte-r the Coal,
and cat the Wood; and piled them to
gether, and decomposed the tne'Jthf

Tho Era says: A Prohibition

tbe recent election in Michigan. Of
course there was lack of tborongh

from want of time and the facilities'
forgiving information tar tbe peo
ple, tickets were not at hand, and
some who would have Voted for
Probbition, were not able to testily
their devotion to tho principle. But,
despite all adverse circumstances,
w are pleased to learn from the
Peninsular Herald, that about three
thousand strait votes were cast for
tho new party. ' Thcse,'j it snys,

There were quite a number of vo

tbe election of Congressman in tbe

them for political leaders in a
