The New-York Herald, which is
nothing if it is not sensational, lias
started tho story that there is a move
mcnt on foot ntnong democrats and dis
affected republicans to itnpc&cl
Grant. It scarcely needed tho cmphat
ic denial of those accused of being at
the bottom of the affair, to assure the
public of its falsity. Tho precedent
established by the radicals in the.im
pcachment of president Johnson is one
the democracy will be slow to follow.
Radical newspapers, by refusing to
publish Governor Palmer's second mcs
sago on the military occupation
Chicago, pay nn unintentional compli
ment to the sober, second thought of
tho law-abiding people of tho stntc.
The courso of these journals show con
clusively their fear of tho effect the
mcffagc will most probably have upou
the mind of the public. Radicalism
overreaches itfelf, however. The mcs-
etr irii) V to tflV pfOJIU Ullf ttlVy Wilt
read and decide upon it.
Says the Chicagn Putt: "Gov.
' Palmer seems bent upon n quarrel ;
1 and it is only owing to the fact that
'the federal authorities arc satisfied
' with having protocted tho city in its
peril, and are content to let tho bollig-
' ercnt governor occupy tho field after
' tho dpnger is over, lhat a quarrel is
avoided." This is radicalism boiled
down and tho efcfcneo extracted. It
tramples upon all laws, state and na
tional, nnd the conscience-stricken rad
ical who objects, docs so at his peril.
Thcro ean ho but one construction plac
ed on the languago of the VW, and
that it should bo used in reference
to the legally elected chief mag
istrate of tho stato of Illinois, for
his timoly protestation against the dan
gerous and illegal course of the federal
authorities in Chicago, shows unmistak
ably tho end to which radicalism is
leading. Tho republican instincts of the
people of tho stato and of tho United
States, cannot much longer refuse to
recognize tho dangers now threatening
republican institutions in thin country.
TllE GOYKUNOU'S MKSSAGK.
The Bocond message of Gov. Palmer
t) the legislature relative to the milita
ry occupation of Chicago, was submitted
to the general assembly on Saturday last.
It was accompanied by the eutiro corres
pondence between Gov. Palmer, Mayor
Mason of Chicago, Geu. Sheridan and
President Grant, the reading of which
is almost necessary to a comprehen
sive understanding of the governor's
mciEagc, but as the letters aro too vol
utunious for our columns wo publish
the message without them, believing the
events referred to in it aro still fresh
enough in the public mind to enable
the rtador to appreciate tho document :

ficer docs what he wishes to do and re

his courso is approved. From tho highest
to tho lowest this is the uniforfii rule.
Grant sends tho navy tb patrol the liilandjs
of the Caribbean Sea, becauso ho thinks jt

becauso ho was satisfied that ho
could not place the now loan with

Mason surrenders to Sheridan and leaves
it to that noted Indian flghtlit, to say
Where he think military aid la necessary,
and bases 1il cxp4tat,on of." being sus-
tained upon tho great doctrino, of public
necessity. And oven "Flnnegan" re
ports to the govcrner that io executing tho
low of tho stato ho.found that himself and
comrades had not monoy enough to do
what they thought tho public good re
quired, aud so after consultation with
Gov. Palmar, they mako a contract for a
building costing about $100,000,
moro than the law authorized
thorn to crntract for. So universal has the
law of public necessity become, that I have
no doubt 'that most of our Justices of the
peaco aro as fully able to legalizo divor-
cos as thoy aro to solemnity tho marriage
contracts, and I should not bo in tho least
startlod to ice a written instrument, com-
menclng with "whereas, in the opinion
of the undersigned, a Justice of the peaco
of Cook county," and purporting to bo a
full and final decroo of divorcement.
Ho I say that it Is as amusing as
tho gravity of the subject
will admit, to see Governor Palmer so
earnest in his advocacy of that old doc
trino of tho limited powors of the federal
government, and 10 anxleus Jes) toe fedcr
at rulers should do in Illinois what he has
for yoars abetted them ic doing in other
states, and tho flutter it occasions among
tho radicals, when this argument comes
from an ablo man of thoir own number,
can not fail to cause a smile upon tbo
faces of democrat who have for
years aworn vengeance against
the party which, was engaged in this state-
destroying enterprise, and which always
answered in full confidence of public ap
proval, "it is necessary."
The delicacy of the snubbing the , presi
dent has given Governor Palmer, must
certainly elicit. the hearty commendation
of all- tho admirers of Ulysses. It is
cruel, perhaps, but tbero ii such refine
ment of cruelty In it, that it challonges
admiration. General Bhoridan "saw tho
necessity of having a fow com

his immodiato control at Chicago. Gen,
Sherman " fully approved " hl course and
sent him a "police force" of four compan
ies. Tbo Secretary of War "saw" Sher
