The area of arable lands in tho United

During tho whole ot the regular and ex
tra session of Congress it 'was a source of
wonder what made Senator Zacbary Chand
ler so "sassy" and belligerent. Some
thought it was fire-water, but as it was said
that he had joined a temperance society it
was concluded that that was not the cause.
It is all out now, however. Ho is a bruiser
and is on his muscle. Ho was trying to
arouso a brigadier to tho fighting point, so
lie could show his admiring constituents
how nic?ly he could put a Mansard roof
over a brigadier's eye.
A most searching inquiry has just been
ruado as to the political faith 'of the em
ployes in the Treasury Department (Hon.
John Sherman's department,) and not one
has been found who has any Democratic
symptoms whatever. Now contrast with
this fuct this statement of tho Cincinnati
' Gazette (radical Republican), made June
fltli, 1870: "No one will ever dispute the
statement, nor will it be denied, that but
. for the aid of war Democrats the war for
the Union would have been a failure and
the Rebellion a success." Democrnts went

The editor of the Chester Clarion proper
ly estimates the unhesitating rapacity of
tho average Republican official. The 385
000 appropriation for the Chester peniten
tiary, forms a temptation, he says, that can
not be resisted by Republican officials, and
consequently tho Democrats who aro em
ployed about the institution aro being re
moved, in order that the majority members
of tht jeommission may have an opportunity
to provide for themselves in tho usual stal
wart manner. The people of the stato may
look for a lrig deficiency when tho next
legislature meets ; it is probable xhat they
may also look tor one or two of tho present
Republican officials of the prison, with lit
tle chance of finding them in any country

The Republicans nominated the lat blood-

ho did. If Grant does not have at least
two-thirds of tho delegates pledged to him
ho will not go beforo tho convention. If ho

Cincinnatians were all agog, tho other
day, over the discovery that they had, in
their midst, a stout chunk of a boy with a
hairy tail, fourteen inches long. Tho news
of the wonderful discovery went abroad
and reached Chicago. Two days later a
Chicago man reached Cincinnati, found the
hairy-tailed boy, clasped him to his breast,
shed many tears over him, and called him
his long-lost son ! And to this briny-eyed
Chicagoan tho boy was surrendered, ' and
now Chicago and not Cincinnati, is the
posessor ofthathairy-tailcd human wonder.
Several days after surrendering the boy and
his tail, it got through the thick skull of
the Cincinnatiaus, that they had been de
frauded; that the Chicago chap was "on the
make," and will now, in very short order,
bo in tho show field, with the greatest liv
ing human wonder a boy with a 14 inch
hairy tail ! We feel constrained, In view of
all tho facts, to score one tor Chicago.
When the natural wealth and resources
of Southern Illinois shall become known,
it will be held the favored spot of God's
foot-stool. Every year brings to light sonic
new element of wealth, although explora
tions to that end havo been ot tho most su
perficial kind most of the discoveries hav
ing been wholly accidental. We now have
it that Col. Kirkham, of Anna, has discov
ered a large stratum of good, fine-working,
clean, whito marble, among tho hills in
Union county. The bed is six feet thick,
without crack or seam. Quantities of tho
rare, olive-ground marble havo also been
brought to light in the same locality. Col.
Kirham says there is more marble than
limestone in Union county, and if tho state
ment is true, that county has a more valua
ble sourco of wealth than half of tho min
ing regions of the West.
In carrying out their purpose to rid the
Southern Illinois Penitentiary of the pres
ence of Democrats, tho commissioners re
moved the surgeon, Dr. John T. Pollock,
to give place to ono G. W. Elkins, of Vien
na. It is said that Tollock
is incomparably the better surgeon;
but, according to tho creed of Republican
ism, "if a man havo stalwartism,all things
clso shall be added unto him." Tho
Chester Clarion snys that when Dr. Tollock
entered upon his duties at tho prison, ho
had placed under his professional caro two
hundred of as scabby, rotten, diseased men
as the Republican officials at Joliet could
find with which to swindle the Republican
officials at tho Chester prison; but notwith
standing tho . condition of the my, and
their change in climate, water, &c., Dr.
Pollock can show a better record in his
treatment of them, nnd of tho two hundred
others who havo since been, incarcerated in
tho institution, than can bo shown by tho
physician of any other institution in tho
state. But tho exigencies of tho Rcpubli
can party require ballots instead of ability,
and Dr. Pollock had to give way to a man
whose friends will perform such dirty work
as Logan & Co, may assign to thorn.
The Milwaukee Sentinel takes no stock
in tho Grant movement; nor docs it bclievo

Southern States, and tho old machinists, the
peddlers of Federal offices, had not claim
ed him as their very own, and insisted upon
his return to tho Whito Houso as a return
of that stalwartism which has brought
whatever disgrace attaches to the Republi
can party. Gun. Grant can escape' political
death at the hands of his Belflsh advocates,
only by tho plan of exile which ho is said
to havo adopted. The painful part of it is
that Grant has done nothing to deserve the
damnation of such support. He was in
office when stalwartism was rampant, and
when to scrape off the barnacles which had
fastened themselves to tho Administration
would havo brought down tho disfavor of
tho party which at that time did not appre
ciate the real character ot tho loud-voiced
patriots whoso solo aim was plunder."
THE LONE, LORN CARPET-BAGGERS.
There is au clement in American politics,
which, although under a cloud since South
ern Democrats wrested from them their
fields of torage, "will not down." Wo re
fer to tho carpet-baggers, who are yet liv
ing in hope, 'though likely to dio in dispair.
The Washington Post has learned that they
aro now organizing that they may bo felt in
tho' next Presidential election. They aro
determined that the Republican party shall
again placo them in positions where thero
shall bo no limit to their stealings save
their own sweet wills. They do not pro
pose, so they say, to be "left" again as they
wero in tho counting in of Hayes; that
in the next convention they
iutend to make their influ
ence felt, and command from the nominee
what they consider themselves entitled to.
A meeting, or conference, of 'leading car
petbaggers was held at Old Point Com
fort tho other day, to talk over the next
presidential canvass and decide upon a
candidate and policy. Among those pros
entwero Jorgenscn, Piatt and Stowell, of
Virginia; Corbin and Chamberlain, of
South Carolina, and men of the same char
acter and fame from other Southern States.
Kellogg, too, was represented, and tho con
elusion readied was that senator Ulaine is
the candidate for the carpet-baggers. It
was urged that he, ds president, would use
all the power of his office to restore the era
of good stealing for these arduous politic
ians of the South. Tho conference wos
secret, and of course, all the proceedings in
detail cannot be had, but the Post has as
certained the most .material points. John
Sherman and his avowed candidacy were
discussed at length, and it was decided,
with great unanimity, that ho would not do
as a candidate for the carpet-baggers. He
was owned entirely by Wall street, and the
money power had not evinced any affec
tion for carpet-baggers, so it was said. It
was agreed that the carpet-bag crowd
should begin to hurrah for Hayes, and
lead him to believe that ho was the man of
their choice. The policy could be kept up
for a tew months, and it would result in
creating a division between nayes and
Sherman. The idea advanced was to kill
off John Sherman in the interest of
Blaine, and the most effective way would
be to inpire the fraud with a belief that he
could bo re-nominated, and thus lead him
to antagonize his secretary of tho treasury.
Grant was talked of, but was discarded in
spite of a few who warmly advocated him.
Tho argument against him was that, should
ho be re-elected, ho would "throw off" on
all tho old crowd and endeavor to win the
confidence of tho country; that he would
feel it necessary to separate himself from
all tho influences that brought reproach
upon his former administration, and tin's
would leavo tho carpet-baggers out in the
cold. After canvassing tho whole field,
Blaine was selected as the man most likely
to stand by tho carpet-baggers, and the
conferenco adjourned after swearing to
