THE GJiyDA 'lM Y OF THE HE'
The whlte-hatted philosopher of the
New York 'Tribuno' Is an honest, al
though at times, a mu-chievous man. Ho
coagltates profoundly and gives tho
world his conclusions. Among thoso
which the good sense of all national men
will Indorse, Is the following: Referring
to the Grand Army of the Republic, ho
gays: "Wo denounce this secret associ
ation as Inimical to tho Constitution and
the Union. The country wants peace
and rest, aud harmony andjustlce. These
men want a distracted couutry, that of
fices may bo gained."
The career of that organization has
not been in the Interest of peace. On tho
contrary, It has done more thau every
thing oIs-, the present wretched radical
congress not excepted, to keep alive tho
hate between tho two sections, aud to
foment discord, distraction and blood
shed. It unquestionably has tho control
of the president, aud commands for its
members auy olllce within his gift.
Fully live sixths of tho ofllces of tho
country are filled by Its men. If this
were the only purpose of tho organiza
tion, however, Its existence would uot be
tho source of uuy alarm; but In the
South It . bands tho negroes together,
pluces arms In their hands, and renders
them a standlug menace to the quiet
and stability of society. Further, and
more alarming still, it Ih the power that
Is looked to to erect an empire in the
couutry, when radicalism sees that the
power Is about to pass from them. It
contains many good men men who
Joined It, believing Its avowed objects Its
only objects. Hut these do not control
It, and will bopowerlejs in the work of
diverting It from its fell purposes, wheu
tho time to strike shall arrive
Tho Grand Army of tho Republic, or
its chief men, havo desigus upon our
republican form of government! Good
men, tho country over, are convinced of
this. It contains as rank traitors as ever
fought in tho armies of tho South, and,
it lias been sMd, 'isauarmyof treason."
Put it on record, then, that If ever an
empire is set up.iu this country, tho G.

Tho Southern editors are canvassing
the propriety of visiting Illinois, some
time durlug the present season, but are
vet undecided as to tho time. The Co
lumbus (Miss.) 'Iudox,' ono of our best
Southern exchanges, urges tho fraternity
to "go slow." "Let us," says the editor
of that paper, "do all wo can to got har
monized and serene. It seems to us wo
should wait for something llko au invl.
tatlon, or at least until tho Illinois editors
have been away from us long enough to
bo glud to seo us when wo meet. Going
now, without any particular call from
them, looks too much llko we wanted to
get our monoy back, while the Illinois
follows aro still good-humored over our
wlnos and tho warm greotlug they every
where met with in the South."
We aro not authorized to speak for
Illinois, but wo can safely assuro tho
Southern editors that Cairo has In re
serve for thorn a warm, hoarty welcome,
como whon they may. Wo aro not, as a
community, very wealthy In dollars and
cents, but wo think wo cherish a wealth
of kind feeling for our Southern newspa
per friends that will assuro them a gen
erous reception and hospitable enter
tainment. Tho Interests of Cairo aro elosqly iden
tified with thoso of u largo portlou of tho
South, aud wo look forward to tho so
cial commingling in anticipation, as a
means that will enlarge . and, multiply
our business rotations, aud effect au un
derstanding that will provo mutually
Rrovlty being the soul of wit does It
follow that there Is a good deal of fun In
a man because ho wears a short coat aud
has his hair shingled? Wo propouud
this interrogatory to Deacon Bross, of tho
Chicago 'Tribune,' specially.
FLO WEES FOE THE DEAD. EVT
A"0 BEE AD FOR THE STARVING
Hero Is a nut for tho radicals to crack.
Tho Fort Warfo 'Democrat says a poor
widow and four children were found In
an old, dilapidated hut, In tho suburbs of
Springfield, Ohio, entiroly destltuto of
tho necessaries of life. Three ofher chil
dren were sick, and herself worn out by
overexertion, was the mere wreck of
what was once a beautiful and loving
wife. Her husband fell at the battl6 of
Chlcamauga, aud thus bereft of her com
panion, the world has dealt roughly and
unmercifully with her. Tho very sight
of her aud her distressed little ones
around her, was enough to awaheem sym
pathy in the heart of a stone. In tho
midst ofher trials and Bufferings, and In
full view ofher starving little darlings,
a kind, generous, and truly loll gentle
man called to inform her that tho
Grand Army of the Republic had
Aprinkled flowers on the grave of her
husband. This pious and loll radical at
tho same time, in contemplating the
gaunt and distressed form of the dead
soldier's wife, iutlmated that tho rent
on her hut was about due. Ho also in
formed tho starving woman that ho
must hurry to town before the bank
closed, as ho had a lot of coupons cut
from his bonds, on which he wished to
draw a gold Interest. Such are the glory,
grandeur, and beauty of radicalism !
THE SEWIXG MA CHIXE.
The sewing machine, although a great
blessing to woman kind, has proved It
self to be not an unmixed good. Con
stant work upon it is found to be tho
cause of some of the most painful and
aggravating diseases to which women
are subject. Indeed, thoso who depend
upon it for a living, are soon worn out,
and become permanently impaired In
health. Wo are glad to seo that a recog
nition of this drawback to the usefulness
of the invention has caused an effort to
devise cheap aud simple means for ap
plying the needful power; and already
several Inventions for this purpo?e'have
been patented. One Is an electric at
tachment, which has been spoken of very
highly, hut in all probability will be lia
ble to tho objection of MzU cost, or
courso, whert many machines are em
ployed, as in a largo factory,- swam may
be applied with advantage, but It would
hardly auswer for every lady to have a
small steam engine In her parlor. It
would seem that some combination of
springs or clockwork would be the most
effectual method of attaining the de
sired end, aud we learn from the 'Mining
and Scientific Press that a device of this
kind has been patented by a California
Inventor. Something of the sort is much
ueeded, but to be of any practical use It
must bo both simple aud cheap.
THE TROUULEs'oF RADICALISM.
Tho radical party Is rapidly going to
pieces all over tho South. Iu Virginia,
there are two tickets iu tho field; In
Tnnessec, Stokes and Senter divide the
party in an Irreconcilable feud; In Ar
kansas oue wlug'la led by Gov. Clayton,
and tho other by Lleutonant Governor
Johnson; iu Georgia, Dr. Sam Bard, of
tho 'Now'Ero,' aud his faction make war
upon Bullock aud his retainers; iu Texas,
the election has been postponed by Grant
,to permit the factious to patch up peace;
lij Florida, Govoruor Harrison Read is at
sword-points with a majority of his party;
and In South Carolina tho augry conten
tions which havo arisen In tho Charles
ton city council aro exfendltig to the
Stale, and ;i negro party, pure ami sim
ple, is nroposed by Daddy Cain, the black
senator from Charleston.
A radical organ says that General
Grant, in appointing young men to ca
detshlps in the West' Poiut Academy,
has discriminated in favor of tho sous of
distinguished soldiers living or dead.
Now it is a fact, that for every soldier a
son seut by Oraut to West Point, tlfty
living soldiers aud sons of dead soldiers
and widows of dead soldiers have been
driven out fniu ofhee to subsist as best
they.pould or die.
