Nov. It, 1167-tf.
The lXubrillo Gttctte can not
agree with ua that the domocrtU, of
the North, will tnbmit to the denpot-
isra prepared for them. We used the
the term in ne offentire itnte, end
we are pleaeed to find our eotompo
rary to hoptfuL Though ; neither
sage nor prophet, in foreshadowing
oommg events, for more than two
yean, we hare rarely been' wrong, eo
far at regards results, and. the signs
of the times are that the Johnson
tag pf the demooratio party will
adhere to the policy of their chief. -
If revolutions neror ga . back
wards; we think it eqially true, that
revolutionist dare not pause, know-
ng that hesitation may prove fatal to
thoir schemes. . The magnitude of
the political erime, now being perpe
trated by Radical leaders, will hardly
encourge them to give an outraged
and indignant people an opportunity
to pass sentence upon their treason
at the ballot box, and sooner than
await certain and overwhelming de
feat, they will take the' responsibility
of appointing a President and, this
being done, they will have reached a
point whence it will be safer to go for
ward than to retreat, and self-preservation
will snggost, as the only re
maining hope for safety and success,
an armed defense of their position.
And having at their command insub
ordinate and unscrupulous army offi
cers, they will build np around them a
wall of bayonets formidable to the
brave, and inviting the timid and un
principled to seek safety and profit by
going over to the winning side. In
the meantime, the democrats, unpre-
paied, will fall easy victims of the
armed hosts of conspirators, should
the former attempt to rice in arms,
In this way, submission, begginning
in policy, may end in submission from
necessity. ' '
God grant that we may prove a
bad guesser rather than a prophet '
Old Jessee Grant, in his
of his precocious genius. Among
them, are the remarkable facts that
he could drive a horse, when seven
nd a half years old, and at nine,
could stand up on a hare back horse
while running at full speed. And
about the same age, he rode a trick
nonv in a circus, and it tailed to
throw him though aided by a monk'
We have have seen, many a time
negro boys, no bigger than a piece of
chalk, perform similar feats, but in
our stupidity, it never occurred to us
that they were embryo Presidents.-.
The admirers of Ulyss may get over
this damaging rivalry in early genius
by claiming that it is accounted for
by the near rclstionship of the monk
ey sud the negro. Be this as it may,
we incline strongly to the belief that
Ulyss would have been, deservedly,
more successful and the countrj bet
tor off, had his daddy developed his
single talon by binding him to
cirous. The opportunity having
Icon lost, Ulyss ought to teach the
old man to hold his jaw.
General Grant ip said to have four
uvea now being published. One life
of a true soldier and patriot written
actions, is worth a thousand bi
ographies, which substitute fiction
for fact, cover glaring defects with
the putty of fancy, and make a hero
and a statesman out of a stupid block
paiutod and gilded to attract the ad
miration of the undiscriminatlng
The Richmond Whig informs us
that both the Generals Thomas are
natives of Virginia. There are black
sheep in every flock , but they ought
not to be allowed to stray into other
folds. Every slave State haa furn-
shed its quota to the abolition army,
and such recruits are the lowest speci
mens of that foul ernwd.
Maynard and Stokes have been
stumping New Hampshire and ex
kibiting themselves as evidenoe of
the capacity of negroes for sol f-gov
ernment. Maynard may boast of bis
representing negroes, because he is
the offspring of miscegenation, but
Stokes is simply a dwarfod white man
an intellectual an moral abortion.
There was a new feature in trod u
ced into election, on Saturday. So
much were theyankee managers afraid
the African element might be cheated
that they put the loyal tickets
