Since President Grant has shown no
respect for his own administration, It
can scarcely bo oxpocted that others will
respect It. His shameless, nepotism, his
little show of nerve and determination,
his dlsgracefusurronder 9 the, Senate,
his blunders, his 'appointment of un
worthy and Infamous men to high places,
form a sum of sins, and mistakes that
mark his administration, at once, as a
The appointment of Daniel B. Sickles
as minister to Mexico, although scanda
lous, Is In'falr kcopliig with the character
of his executive carcor. Thero is sot a
decent souslblo, radical in tho country
who wlll'not acknowledge that Sickles
Is personally, too Infamous to move In
respectable society. A cuckold, ho mur
dered In cold blood his wife's lover, cost
ofTtho perfidious woman, made a great
show of his regard for virtue and chastity,
and then took tho defiled woman back
to his roof ami his bed. This Is tho man
that President Grant names as minister
to Mexico not much of a mission It Is
true; but the bloodiest greaser or guer
rilla that iufchts tho chapparcl of Meta
morns or eutx throats In the passes of
Durnngo, would bo Insulted by his pres
ence there us the reprcscntlve of our
people. The Infamy of his character has
been known for years, and tho President,
'therefore could not be in Ignorance of it.
Uo appointed him, although cognizant
of his moral unfitness, showing a reck
lessness alike for the, 'diameter of our
country abroad and his own administra
tion at home'. " ' '
' ' ANOTHER MISTAKE.
The removal of J. Rosa Browne, the
minister appointed by Mr. Johnnou to
China, Is anottier of Grant's mistakes.
Mr. Drown was unanimously confirmed
by tho radical Senate, and his confirma
tion gavi very general satisfaction. One
of the great purposes of his' appointment
umloubUy was, sny the Louisville
'Courier Journal' that, besides perform
lnghls duties at Minister, which could
occupy only a small portion of his time,
ho might, by his magic pou and his
nlmot equally magic pencil, make the
world familiar with many of tho myste
ries of 11 most mysterious laud and
people. Mr. Hrown's nomination was
confirmed by our strongly Radical Senate
without opposition. Hut scarcely has ho
got to the place of his destination before
President Oraut, for no conceivable
reason uxoept u desire to reward hungry
and clamorous partisans, removes blru,
and, with the advico and consent of the
same Senate that gave Its advice and
consent for his .confirmation, sends out
a successor, with another outfit of thous
ands of dollars of tho public money, thus
burdening tho peqpjowlth two outfits
