ON the re-assembling of the legisla

quonim in cither branch. Twenty
seven senators were absent and one
hundred and four representatives. The

We publish to-day the correspond
enco between Attorney-General Reed
and Gov. Palmer. As (he mailer Jiorr
stands, Gov. Vahncv certainly gets the
better of the state's attorney. The
latter bungles in his endeavor to slip
out of an unpleasant predicament. Be
ing a radical, he ought to know how to
get out of such a difficulty without ex
posing, so broadly his falsehood and
The account of the unprovoked at
tack on an unoffending citizen of Now
Orleans by I'iuoltback, the lieutenant
governor of the state, and his party, is
perhaps exaggerated by the New
Orleans Republican, the Grant paper
which published it. Hut there is
doubtless a ground work of truth for
the story, and this shows tlio condition
to which the carpet-bag government
of Louisiana is bringing the state. The
salvation of the state depends on its

President Gn ant has had nn op
portunity to show his intention to ob
serve ic tviWs of the civil service com
mission. A certain ra&tcWV vuuator had
promised a colored man the posi.ion of
messenger, and the application was
made on the second of January, the
day after the new rules were to go into
effect. The president notified the senator
that the applicant would have to
annlv under the new rules
as these would have to be
strictly observed hereafter. This
purpose of tho president is about as
commendable in him as a resolution to
lead an honest life would be in a bur
glar who had stolen himself rich. Giant,
having supplied all his relations and
friends with fat offices, now commences
to carry on the administration in n
" strictly honest" way by beginning
on a mati and brother" who would
not have an opportunity to steal ten
cents from the government if he
Sexatoh Wilson, of Massachusetts,
in his speech before the republican
atato convention of Sew Hampshire,
endorsed Gen. Grant's administration
With a few exceptions he declared, it
has been a model of wisdom and hon
esty, and to his certain knowledge Gen.
Grant has received but n few very small
presents since he placed his august per
son in the chair presidential. Liko the
girl who slipped from virtue, the pres
ident seeks to excuse his short-comings
by belittling them. The girl, it is true,
had tho baby, out of wedlock ; " but
why," sho exclaimed, " do people mako
' such a fuss about the matter, and talk
' so much ? There is no seuso in this

'these democrats cry out uvt the

'true he has accented r0mw i,.,"'"1 Kum-V'
' they have all been very Miiall prenuite,
'uot worth mentioning!" Jtut, good
senator, lias the record of Grant's ro
fusal to accept anything offered to him
ever been made? lias he not accepted
all that has been offered to him ex
cept tho pup scut from Cincinnati bv
express, on which the donor had neg
leeted to pay the charges? This "small
present" apology is not sufficient. It
is wonderfully weak. A flat denial of
the well known fact that Grant has
prostituted tho high office of president
by accepting gifts of ofllco-bcekers
would be much better.
