Tlio idea 1h enlortnlncd tlmt tlio princely
appropriation mude by congrc!?, and the loan
of tlio government faith to secure tlio con
struction of tlio Union l'liclllc railroad, will
have n tendency to dolny tliU international
project. It N argued that tlio government
having already given of her domain an area
equaling that of the entire states of Indiana
and Illinois, be.lde n loan of credit of nearly
equal value, it will feol uvewe to further like
appropriations until the wUdom of their pres
ent gift lun been mntilfeted by the success
of the northern rendu, nnd their incaimcity,
v.h n rninpiircd with tlio niagnitude of tlio
nvirland trade, may point to Increased com
merciiil avenues im great national want of an
imnirntlvo nature. JIv such rontons wo fail
to bo convinced. My the appropriations al
ready ina lo the government has established
n policy that should apply to no particular
section or people. Tlio wisdom of applying
our public domain to the aceomplMimeiit of
such f-hrini.;, wo shall not discuss, nltliougli

law, of the passage of Jcncko's civil scrvlco
bill after tire transfer of tho Indian bureau
to tho warTrepartuicut, of stopping subsidies
to the railroad, and of breaking up all tho
radical thhiving rings in tho country. Fear
ing by power, tho radicals nppoar inclined to
hold on to.tho clvil-tenuro net in order that,

tnoy fliay lie utile to keep nun mere, isy
transfer of tho Indian bureau to tho war de"
partmcnt, tlicy will lose u largo amount of
patronage in tho appointment of agents, su
perintendents, nnd other officers, and n largo
nmount of percontaees In contracts and annu
ities. .JenekVs civil service bill would cut on"
an immeffso revenue of public plunder, whoso
appointment tho rndicnls hope to control for
party purpohW, instead of making tho officer
contingent InUho capacity of candidates. To
'aii of ur
: tires o tTTi
Prow of tho radicals is added
njj'iither'which will probably cunipleto tho
burden oi tiiulr endurance. I lus is tliu aior
tionof Grant, recently, that ho considered
the faithful administration of public huInc
head mid shoulder alxjve theclaimsof iinrty,
nnd that lie is tin enemy henceforth to tho
principle thnt party services aro u clnlm for
public office. Gen. Grnnt declared that ho
will not reinovn officers who havo been faith
fill to their trusts, merely beenu'c nnv politi
cal party demands it. This being his do
clnred intention, the question conies ns to thu
disposition or tue large number of taltuful
olilccrs already in tue servico ot tlio govern
ment, whom the radicals desire to get out of
tne way, in order mnk-e room tor tnoso wno
have been of grenter service to tho party.
The rndicnls are nlo incened nt Grant s ret
icence. They advio him very freely, but
they complain that he does not manifest any
disposition to net ou their ml vice, nnd tlmt
they nro Ignorant u to his preferences' of
men. Altogether tho fight seems to huvo
fnirly begun, und it maybe looked forward to
by outsiders with rare interest.
