BY JOHN II. OBERLY &
(Jahhiha M. Clay has abandoned the
Radical party, lie denounces the Ad
ministration ait irredeemably worthless
mid utterly corrupt.
FnAJf K Ht.Ain wont into tho army "a
,ltcput)licn and on' thu l8th Sunt, was
elected Democratic United Sfalca Sena
tor frjr Missouri. John A. Logan
went into the anny as n Democrat, .and
on the 18th Inst, was elected Itcpubli
can United State Senator, from Illinois.
Tii r. Wulchmun in the name of new
Democratic riapar published at lamaroa,
Perry coliBly) by Lyman E. 'Kuajip,
It:) motto in "Fearless Tor thu right, and
brave in its defense." Tho Wulchmun
in a sprightly shoot, and should bo lib
tf 'My patronized by the Democrats of
Mk. Looax booted himself into the
HenatAny t resort to all tho tricks of
the politician and the demagogue. Ilia
wife was active in taking members by
the coat lappet and asking them to go
for John ; he had Olive Logau'a winter
on hand to ning and play the piano for
the romantically inclined Senators and
Representative, and all tho Federal of
lice-holders in the State were in his ser
vice. May we bo permitted to say,
that John is "up to tmuff."
Wno snail be tho Radical candidate
for Congrcssinenat-Large to fill the va
cancy to be occasioned by Login's .je
moval .to jfrf.i)jiU(. 7 And who snail
bu tho Democratic candidate ? If the
Democrats nominate a strong man they
can defeat tho Radical, and tccure the
State permanently to their party. If all
the Democrats in tho State bad voted
in November last, Logan would have
been defeated by a majority of -10,000.
In the neit context, all tbe Democrat
will como out, while many disgusted
Republicans will remain at home and
abstain from voting.
THE ORASD JURY SYSTEM.
Under the new constitution of the
State Om legislature may abolish the
grand jary.iyttcm, and it thould loso&t)
time in doiug so. There is no need to
recite thu arguuenu which lead every
mind uninfluenced by a love of venera
ble institutions to this conclusion. They
aro kaowo to every intelligent man and
woman. Inconsistent with the spirit
of our institutions, a relic of .the past,
the grand jury should not be tolerated
for a moment. It is a spy upon the
citizen, a defaracr of his character, a de
nouncer that permits no answer, a use
less expense, a nuisance.
THE WAR IS rjUXCE.
The French people haWc 'night in
the present war with remarkable per
sistency and bravery, but with little
skill, aud uow tho downfall of tho eu

ANOTHEli POLITICAL TARTAR.
OurJUdlcal ftiends are unfortunate
Tbeyo noTjcnow, whlfinau "to ruut.
unoir woi oi to-uay, win. u is wrooau.e
bo the recreant of tomorrow; To-mor
row they will -throw up' their hats and
shout for.aniau.and tha-uoxtday throw
curses at him iu showers.
Gov. Alcorn, of Mississippi, is the
latest cxamplo of a Radical recreant
nud ho has published his treason iu
tho most offensive mahuor. rorgetfu
of tho fact, that bo is tho representative
of the ultra loyalty of the State of Mis
shsippi and owes bis election to tho
votes of thouwn f uegroc, he htm
coolly denounced a Radical named
Flournoy, who aired his loyalty, calling
Gen. lice a rebel and flinging
epithets at thu Mississippi university
becautio only white ntudcuU aro admit
ted into it. Tho Oovcrnor admits that
"(jon.Lco.waf, perhapt, a rebel ; but"
he add-), "I myself stand guilty of the
"aamo ofTeiiFC." Having laid down this
proposition, thu Governor concludes
that he cannot, "therefore," even seem
ingly approve any slur cast upon tho
memory of Geo. Lee, bocauao of hb
participation in tho rebellion. Where
fore, ho says to Flournoy, you cannot
receive from me tho commission you
want of Rrigadier General in tho mili
tia. Why does Congress hesitate?
Here is a clear cafe of disloyalty, aud
calls for the remedy of rccoustructon.
Shall it be said that, because a loyal
man called Gen. Leo n rebel, that loyal
man must be compelled to stand back
from the official trough ?
Rut the Radical Governor, Alcorn,
does not stop here. He strike the
negro "rights" a harder blow than nny
Democrat has dared to strike for years.
"I can never," he exclaims, "forget that
"I am a white man, with all the pride
"of the race that has given to the world
"that crowning glory of civilisation
"liberty. And if I cannot pu.-h the
"negro- forward on the glorious'pathway
"opened befoni him by God, without ar?
"rpstiug tho Caucasian in his Heaven
''inspired progress, then miwt negro lib
"erty leant, n far as I am concerned, to
"take care of itself."
This is rank trcaon rank! Radical
ism can occasionally enduro a kind
word for a miict rebel a dead rebel ;
""but how dare any man talk thus about
Hhe man and brother I" Taking care
of negro liberty in tho stock in trade of
Governor Alcorn's party, and ho has
uttered words that will shove him out of
fellowship with his present partisans.
Well, he is a respectable gentleman, and
ic may tike a scat in the Democratic
liom-chold. Aud now let Rutler and
Hutaucr fulminate, and wix nut thin
recreant Alcoru wipe him out with
their political sponge.
