Tiik death of Mrs. Maria Cleinin,

A. Poc married Virginia, the daughter

very short, the wife being of a delicate

bear the wounds inflicted on it by tho
wild and wayward habits of her husband.
However, flio loved and believed in him

of her son-iu-law, a devotion rcmarkn-

Mr. Charles Sumner has been doposed
from the positiou hold by.hiiu'for ovor
a decado of Chairman of tho Commit
teo on Foreign Relations. Senator
"Chawlcs" has been snubbed and in
suited ; tho " Hub " aud all Massaohu
Botta aro howling in tho ngony of des
pair and indignation; prominent West
ern Hadical. journals assort that the
whole thing is " going to the devil," and
every honest man uttcrs)u fervent Amen.
The blows inflicted by South Carolina
Jirooks on the back of tho then rna'rtyr
cui not half no keen as the piercing
thrust, so well and effectually delivered
in-his own pdrson, in his own political
household, by his. own politicalTcllowa.
Mr. .Sumiiicr's offending has been
iHsrsUtont opjiositiou to tho Presidents'
.Santo Dpmingo selieinc. In this bo
was supported by many of tho ablest,
men and journals in bis own party. Put
the same qualities of character which
wrenched victory for the cat's tail strat
egist from his foe we keen in tho dis
placement of Sumner by the president.
The fight however, has but fairly com
menced and will now be watchud with
greater interest throughout tho land.
What Henton described n the "cohc-ive
power of public plunder," has no better
illustration than in this decapitation of
Sumner. While it has not been proven,
it has been commonly charged and
never refuted, that the tbolc affair was
n htigo job guttun tip in (be Interests of
a few person, with the President of
the.'o Tnitcd States standing at their
head as its active manager. During the
stormy hoision of the caucus at Wash
ington on Friday, almost every member
present took part in the violent din
cussion, and it is curious to note the
character of Iho mou'raocd on cither
idc. For the removal we find Morton,
who. pcrhupu, was moved more by a
feeling of jealousy and envy than of
gain'; next comes Pomcroy, of Kansas
tho Dick Turpiu of the Senate ; the fel
low who ii "in" with everything having
a dollar in it ; after him that hoary
headed political trickster and knave,
Siuion'Camcroii, whucarrics Pennsylva
nia in one pocket aud Grant-in tho other;
following him comes "Pill" Nye, .lack
Hamilton, of Texas, Sawyer of South
Carolina, Kellogg, of Louisiana, 'Chan
dler, the blatherskite of Michigan, and
a, numlwr of others of that, ilk, who
have contributed "mot to brine; the
body of whicli they are tlio members,
under the suspicion of every honest
and intelligent man in the country.
Again-t Sumner's removal wo find
Scliunt, Sherman, Spr.igue, Kenton,
Triitnbull, the Morrills, of Vermont aud
Maine, WiUou, Windom and Ferry, of
Connecticut men of that stamp the
men who have for years occupied tho
highest niche in the estimation of their
partisans. To cap the climax, Cameron
was sub'tittited for Sumner on the Com
mittee, nnd the latter assigned, or rather
consigned, to a contemptible committco
created for tlm occasion.
Looking at the row from u demo
cratic staud-poiut, we find ourselves oc
cupying a position similar to that of the
western Amazon, who, looking on at tho
struggle between her husband and n
bear, cooly exclaimed; 'Go it bus
band; go it bear." The fight between
the administration on tho one hand aud
tho republicans who stand by Mr. Sum
our on the other, only demonstrates tho
rottenue-'s of tho organization to which
they belong. Its doom is Healed. Tho
last nail ha- been driven in tho coffin of
Radicalism, and tho corpse only awaits
tho services of iho undertaker in 1SG2.
Mav God have iiiercvon its sinful soul.
