after to-day Mr. Grooloy will very raroly

of that speech, Ben. Butler and othor re
publican members of tho house, passed
over to tho democratic sido, shook hands
with tho orator and heartily congratulated
him. These men aro not in tho habit of
congratulating a domocrat after ho has
said anything that works injury to tho re

may bo observod throughout tho country
that tho most zoalous partisans of Gen.
Grant aro chuckling ovor Voorhocs, prais

Tho more zealous a man is for Grant, tho

is proof sufficient that Mr. Voorhees is

tho following conversation took placo :
"Aro you nwaro of tho causo of Mr.

"No, 1 am not; in fact I had so many
othor questions to ask him that tho fact of
his resigning novor occurred to mo."
"What is your opinion us to his chances
of election 7"
"Why simply this; If tho Democratic
Convention indorse his nomiuatiun he will
bo ulectod, othcrwiso it is of courso doubt
ful." "If tho Democrats should not indorso
him, do you supposo ho will run 7"
"That I do not know, and if I did I
would not wish to say so."
"What offect would it baveon Mr. Groo

"Oh, but ho will; ho has all tho office
holders in tho country under his thumb,
and at his bidding will perform any ser
vico ho requires. I am personally ac
quainted with Grant ; I know him liko a
book, and I ulso know that if ho was suro
that his running would defeat tho party
ho would not glvo in an Inch, for ho is at
stubborn as a canal mulo, and also rovongo
ful." "From what I can understand from dlf
forcnt sources, ho Is not popuhir with tho
mon whom ho has appointed to olUco?'1
"That Is so; I mytolf know dozens of
them who despise him, but for fear of los
ing tboir places koop quiet, and aro
secretly working for Mr.-Greoloy."
"What does your committee propose do
"Work, of courso; organizo. Why,
scarcely a day has passed for a week that
from forty to fifty letters are not received

with his old whlto coat, his breeches stuck

oven smoko, let alono drink whisky. The
cabinet moctln's would bo as dry as a last
year's bird's nest, and Bourbon county
wouldn't bo represented iu tho govern

ho ain't got nny son to send olT to Europe
In a govornmoiit vessel, and our navy

Then he's ufilictcd with "political econ

ical administrations woro played out long
ago. it thuros anything about these lib
erals that proves that they ain't genuine
republicans, it's tho fact that they go in
for economy that's tho cloven hoof of
tho democracy a stickin' straight out.
"Why, political economy would ruin nil tho
omco-lioldors in tho country In less than
six months, und wo wouldn't have nny big

what would wo do without any "national

thorn kind of notions again we'll drift
right bnck to tho degenorate days of
Jefferson, nnd then whero would wo bo?
A nice enndidato, Grooloy is, after
goin' and bailin' out Jell'. Davis, instead
of waltin' for Grant to punish him for
treason along with Longstreet. This act
ot defeatin' tho ends of justico and cheat
