THE FINANCIAL QUESTION AND THE DE MtOCRACY'S OPPORTUNITY TO WIN. That distinguished ex-Confederate of" ficer, General Gordon, the new United States Senator from Georgia, who mad~ a brilliant record in Congress, has ujui 'returned ~rome. On his way b a cI through Atlanta he was interviewed by; a representative of the Atlanta Herald; who elicited the following very inter esting expressions of opinion from Sen 'ator Gordon on political. topics, all of importance to the South: QRANT'S POSITION AND VIEWS AND A THIRD TERM. Reporter-Do you, General, think that.1 tQiere is anything of truth in the third term aspirations of General Grant, as suggested by the Courier-Journal? General Gordon-I certainly do. I think that President Grant is exceed ingly anxious to run again, and is apt to do so. I am very intimate with bim, as much so as almost any one, and he is always very cordial with mae. I think he certainly intends to run again. Reporter-Will the Republican party nominate him again ? General G.-I don't think Gen. Grant desires a party nomination at their ha:nds. Ills ambition is to run as the people's candidate; not as a Democratic or a Republican candidate, but as a candidate oS the people of the United States; as a candidate of a great Grant party, if you please. Evidences of this ambition are evinced daily. His abso lute independence of all Republican leaders.; the indifference with which he incurs the enmity of Morton, Logan or Butler, and above all the evident pains he takes to show the South that he is not her enemy. . A man can not be with Grant -any length of time before he catches his kindly dift in favor of the Southern people. His idea seems to be to show our people that he is President not of one section, but of the republic, and that he shall deal to them just such judgments as to those who followed the nomination of the Republican par ty, he will get it. Not that they pre fer him to any other candidate. Not at all. For, with the tradition of the republic, and in the spirit of our insti tutions so decidedly against such a° course, they will be timid about ovfer ing a third-term candidate. They will nominate him though because they will be afraid not to do it. For two reasons. First, they bel eve he is the only man who can hold the Republican party to victory. And (they are right in this) that lie is much stronger than his party. Secondly, they fear that if they leave him out he will be picked up by some muiddlo party, or even by the Democratic party, and run against them. Hence, if he wants the nomi nation, in my opinion, he will get it without any trouble. IF NOT GRANT, WHO THEN? Reporter-In the event of Grant's not offeing, who will be the probable Republican candidate? Gen. G.-I think that Hon. Eli B. Washburne, our present Minister to France, is by long odds the most prom. iuent. He is Grant's especial friend and adviser, and, besides his own pow-, er and popularity, would have the benz efit of Grant's strengtlh with the party. If Grant could name his successor as the Republican nominee, and I think he could pretty nearly do it, he would certainly name Washburne. THE DEMOCRATIC CHANCES AGAINST GRANT AND THE RADICALS. Rep.-What are the chances, in yoear opinion, for the siccess of the Radibul party under Grant? Gen. G.-I think the Democracy wll have a certain vic~tbry. They will have three points, either one 'of i*hich will be almost irresistible. First, Grant can not be elected on his finan cial platform. The great mass of the _ople are opposed to the speedy re turn to specie payments that he advo cates, because they believe it will bring panics ten times worse than the one we are just recovering from, and ruin the country. They all believe in hard money as a fact, and love to talk of it as a boast, but they don't believe in wading through ruin and bankr'int-. cy to resumption. Grant on his vets platform, or his policy set forth in his memorandum to Senator Jones, can't; in my opinion, carry a single Wester or Southern State, and I don't think he can carry Pennsylvania. Second it would be almost impossible for any man to enter the White House for a third term. The whole spirit of tlie Republie is against it. It would be esteemed an audacious grasp at a dic tatorship. The people who revere the Republic and its traditions will rime to put it down. And yet with this terri ble influence against him Grant is the strongest man his party can run. Mor ton and Logan are both aspirants, but neither can bring the same spirit and influence and enthusiasm to the can vass that Grant can. So I think, if the party runs Grant, the alarm of the peo ple at the approach of absolutism will entail defeat. If it throws Grant over board there is no other man in its ranks that is strong enough to lead the party through another victorious cam paign. STRONGEST POINT AGAINST THE RAD ICALS. Reporter-You said that there were three "strong points" that the Demoo racy could put to the country against the Radical party, and you only men tion two-what is the othert I(en. G.-Obh that is the strongest of theii all. -it isIthe- crr oii an id rot tenness of the party. It can not stag ;er along much longer inder its lnfa mies. The Sanhora :contra", t ie Credit'I ,l r, the moity ystlem, te District oQIluwbia jobls, and aboive all the capje&-bag groqndelism in the Southern Statse ,all. these arrayed against tle tparty will kill it. CAUTIO. TQ THE SOUTIIEIN PEOPLE. IReporter-You think the Democratic party hap had victory ahead of them, then, i tu iehext camlpaighi Gen: Gr.-Almost certainly,. unless they mnake some terrible 'blunder. 1f, by any .imprudence of speech or action, the Southern people, give the Republi. fans a etiajee-to fly the issues of cor-. ruptiou and:misgovernment, and the ,differencosgn. which the war' wt fought, and which are still invincible in the.Norti, we. will- lose the fight.

This is a noticeable fact, and a very signiflcant-one. WHO ARE THE DEMOCRATIC ASPIRANTS. Repodev-lThe chance; of the De mocracy being so bright, there must be in lihat:party a 'nutviber. of .candi dates for the conming nomination Who do you con~sifF the cowing man in this ~#te . -.

Reporter-Do you think the civil rights, bill will pass the next session I GeuG.::.4 am almost sure of it. You see it failed last session-.only be-. anuse is neded a two thirds vote to bring it up. Next session it can be taken si"ii its regular order and car ried by a' simple majority. It had sixty-nine majority in the House on its issue last month. With the same Congtas to vote on it next session, I •think it will certainly pass. SReOpter-t WiUl the President veto, Goe;.;-hiSL inclinations will .oeer tainlfibad him to" do it. Tire 'party pressure, though, will be very stror.ng in fasV ot his. signing it, and I fear .he wi4 p.$ resist.it. He is very self willed though, and there is no saying what '6 will do. I believe if it could be staded off until the next Congress was electted it could be beaten, for I am confdeat that in the next House the majority will be reverted.
