We publish, in another column, an
article- beaded "Grant aa President,"
and professing to give his policy as
Chief Magistrate, alias Dictator. The
article may be purely sensational,
and doubtless is, but still it foreshad
ows the future of the government
now being erected by the Radicals,
upon the ruins, of a representative
When Congress reversed the lead
ing feature of free government, that
the majority shall rule, and substi
tuted the theory that tho right to
govern belongs to the minority, they
paved the way for a monarchy, as did
their illustrious exemplars, tho rump
Parliament of England. A minor
ity of one is better than that of a
dozen, and whether better or not,
one man can more easily grasp the
reins of power in his single hand,
and by his undivided will, than an
oligarchy, divided in opinion, and
suspicious of each other. . Ambition
will divide a council of thirty or
more tyrants, but a single ruler has
feuds with himself, and what is more,
history proves that the rule of one
man has been productive of more
good, and has given more stability to
government and more satisfaction to
governed than a clique, junto, or
Should this be the programme and
Grant the man, the strong military
government that is to work such
wonders for the country, will, as his
keepers will find out, necessitate a
widely different policy towards the
South, from that now pursued. The
scheme of active intervention in the
affairs of Europe and the annexation
of territory on this continent are
impossibilities in view of the large
army which will be necessary to
maintain negro supremacy in the
South, and in view of the danger in
case of a foreign war, that may grow
out of the just indignation and dis
affection of eight millions of wronged
and insulted and brave people, forced
by injustice and tyranny, to seize
upon the first opportunity to throw
off thoir galling yoke.. Whatever
may happen, it is not easy to make
our condition worse, and in the rad
ical changes now being effected, there
is a chanco that it may be bettered,
or at least made as good as that of
our kind northern brethren. Then
let the work go on. The establish
ment of a monarch has long been
foreseen by close observers of cur.
rent events, and who have studied
the lessons of history. But if we
are to have a King, Grant is not our
choice. We want no scrub, but a
thoroughbred. We want a sober
man, of strong intellect, a good
heart, and an intimate knowledge of
human nature one who can adapt
his policy to their idiosyncrasies, and
take pride in promoting the general
prosperity. A Maximilian would be
a blessing to this country, just now,
and we would hail with pleasure the
advent of auch a man to power over
us. The Puritans produced but one
Cromwell, and we want no bell
wether from their flock.

of the origin and significance of the K. K.

By birth and sentiment we are of the
South. Dearer than all other interests, of

Over these interests we shall watch. Firmly
and faithfully we shall defend them, and
more so now than ever when those interests
are in such sore seed of brave defence and
true defendeis. Believing, as we do, that
the South bad right, and reason aad princi

There is not a day nor deed of the slrng

our struggle, and the future will not forgive

it we must not use words of nnoloer. as
though we doubted the righteonsnru of our
cause; bat plainly and tearieasly, true to
ourselves, to our cause, to out country true
to the dust of the dead at our feet true to
the spirits of those who were so trne to us
true to the living in their terrible loss true
to the Future which is coming dowa to ask
of us the vindication of our conrse and the
story ot our past we must declare and still
declare and never cease declaring, in Words

struggle In which our Fleg went dowa With
not a stain of dishonor on the virgin purity
of its folds. Justice stood on the side of the
men who wore the Grey. And Justice has
not changed sides because we have been de
feated. Unconquered and unconquerable,
Justice Is still with the conquered.
The success of our cause lias been lost
not iu right; for failure can never make
right wrong; nor can success transform the
iniquity of wrong into the sacredness of right
Brute force goes down into battle fields not
to lest the rightfulness of causes, but to trr
the strength of combatants. The success of
the sword is no argument in favor of the
cause for which it has been unsheathed.
The surrender ot the sword Is no argument

These principles are beyond the range of

Above the smoke and storm and shock of
battles, unaffected by victory or defeat, calm
and immovable, Justice sits on ber eternal
throne,and in her eyes right is right forever
wrong is eternally wrong, aud trampled right

the decisions given against ns in the court of
battle, we therefore appeal ; and these decis

was settled by battle that we were the
weaker party. We had less brute force on
our side and we were obliged to yield lo the
superior strength ol our assailants. The ar

immortal cause. They are gone it Is liv

or take it away. 11 is living in the loves ot
Southern hearts it is living in the stories

shall keep it alive. The right of our cause
did not fall with Richmond. It exists as
clearly to-day as it did when the first boom
of our guns sounded across the Carolina wa
ters, and wbtn the Palmetto nag mid ring

shore sent over the sra waved over auraier.

right made them strong to suffer, strong to

bravest of all, to die; rlgbt marched with
tbem, step by step, into every gory field;

Georgia, on the seaboard or the Carolina!, in
the wilila beyond the Mississippi; and now,
right stands amid our ruins and graves, and
pointing to the glories of our cause and
waiting in hope for the terrible retribution of
the future, lifts towards the heavens tne
manacled hands which, there at least, have
never pleaded In vain, and solemnly protest
against the oppression of victorious wrong :
and we for one join bow and always in the
protest. Vto stand by the Pait of our coun

not surrender of right. We yield to the one

w ui purpura uj oe a conversation wun an
intelligent and influential secret agent of the
Government and an old politician. The fol

sensational, in these ei Inordinary times'
I hid a few dayt since a very important
interview with an old politician, a man
whose word, if I were permitted to mention
his name, would add immense weight to the
statements I atn about lo lay before your
readers iu regard to the quiet butsteady rev.
olutton upon which we have n I ready entered.
Tlilt gentleman tirts been for several years
employed by the United Siites Government
as a secret aud coulidential agent both before
endaurlng the war. His powers of observa
tion suipusi those of oidiuary citizens, and bit
acquaintance with lending men in Washing
ton enables him to form judgments in regard
to events about in be developed not to be
equaled by other lookers-on in Jerusalem.
He tborotilghy undeietnnds the under-current
of public feeling ia Washington, and as
such I asked him a few leading questions, to
wbkh I re.-eived replies, which I prefer lo
give in bit own words. Not being permitted
to ranke use of bis name, I will designate him
at "agent." The following it the tubttance
of the conversation had :
Correspondent Who do yon think will be
Agent General Grant beyond peradven

to prevent it. Even if the General cannot

that the Democratic party bat no great mtu
to oppooo him. There it no Jackson or
Douglas in its ranks; there it no maa who
can give wiser counsel to the party in these
extraordiney times; lo keep trie party on the
initiative. With a lack of great men noth
ing remains but organization and old parly
traditions, whb nothing in t'le prospective to
make it successful. The Republicans not
only have one, but many great names, and
the greatest of them all it Gcnearal Grant,
Correspondent What do you think of
agent I have bad several conversations
wlih him. I made bim a present, in the
name of self and other cltizvnt; of a house
in Thirty-sixth street, subject to a certain
mortgage, which was subsequently taken off
oy me u nion league club. This brought me
in close contact with him, and I must say
that, considering all outward appearance, I
sever saw a more commonplace man ; ave,
even his bnree talk was very common.
uuc, nevenneiess, l tell you be is vastly un
derrated. There it mote stuff in bim than
in any other man living. General Francis
Blair only the other day told me that Grant
proposes to be President, and when once in
the White House he proposes to star there. He
thinks himself as great at Cromwell, and has
not tne least doubt but things will shape
tbemselvet in a fashion that will keep bim
in me rrepiacntiai cnair at dictator.
Correspondent What Indicatieui do you

Banks gave me hit wife to take care of while

agent, in a pensive tone, "with Gen. Qrant
