It appear., from eTidonee glren
beTora a eonrt la Memphis, a abort
time aiooe, thai Orant. wbllo com-
fnaading la MiMta!)i, carried oa a
Hvely trade in cotton. .The militarj
odlot waa that plaatera "who &ii not
sell their oottoa to jankee apeoulatori
shonld hare it confiscated. Leaving
oat of eight the villainy of a robbor'e
code, what are we to think of the
oommanding officer who availed him
self of Aha unahristlaa licence to steal
from men completely tubject to his
will. - It was proves by the testimo-
ay r'efered to, that Orant got a share
of the- cotton . that waa confiscated,
and a percentage npon thai which
was sold. . T ,..r.', .
The time has not yeteome for a fair,
fail and dispassionate Investigation
into the short comings of amy offi
cers, but when it does, we are assured
that there is abundant evidence, fa
and abont Holly Sbrlngs, that Grant
played a pretty strong hand at the
Batler tpoon game, , The startling
corruption of the party in power, as
we predicted two years ago, inclines
the Radicals to overthrow tbe gov
ernment rather than risk the damn
ing ezposnre of their Crimea.
One step in crime creates an appa
rent necessity for. another and this
last for still another, until the career
of the criminal is out short by
mob violence, or due process of law.
So U Is with the Radical Congress.
Each usurpation has indnoed another
until the only government let na, is
the arbitrary will sf untrammelled
despots restrained neither by law
nor constitution, patriotism, honesty,
nor humanity, Nor do we believe
there ia a .Radical in Congress who
would hesitate to commit murder, if
he believed the crime necesary to
continue him in power, provided
there waa no personal risk in doing
the deed. Robbery they are daily
perpetrating; the victims are hard
working poor, and the reoleveri of
the thefts are the bondholders, Li
lords of the loom and the pamp
ered, idle and semi-barborous ne
groea. -- - , , ,. . : .
Four kegs of nitro-glyccrine were
stolen from a store in New York, not
long since, and tho guilty Radicals
became so much alarmed, that Speak
er Colfax gravely announced it aa a
conspiracy to blow np Congress.
It was doubtless thought that such an
announcement would tend to fire the
Radical heart. But the reflecting
man will see in it nothing but the tim
idity of conaoious guilt and the effort
of tbe drowning man to siece a straw
The impeachment movement will
not be as promptly disposed of as had
been supposed. The excitement has
worn itself out; the grand army of
tbe repullie has not arriv', and the
people are begianing coolly to look
into the subject Some leading Rad
icals doubt the prudence of the stop;
Chase, seeing in it nothing; but a
triok in favor of Grant, speaks slight
ingly 0t it, "Wait for the wjgon."
