TrirnSDAV MORNING Decpniber 2~. 18GT.
The next Pkesiuesty. —Tlic politicians
are even thus early taking' initiative mea
sures to marshal and con solid te their for- .
ces for the coming Presidential Campaign.
Chicago has been determined on as the
city in which the Republican Presidential
Convention is to be held and present in- ,
dieations point to the probability of Gen. ]
Grant’s nomination by that organization. 1
The democrats, as yet, have not Jetermin
cd where their Convention shall be held
nor have anv developments transpir d in- | '
dicative of a certain and settled pr- rence
"it tlieir part for anv particular p- rs 'ii as
a standard-beant. Thus mirli may be
sat'd v predieatod "t tlii> !att< r organ'izaVion ,
that, while it will insist upon no
tiv tests of jiolitleal orihodoxy as regard
the past, it will <h maud of all who
future support a thorough identification
with its present aims and purposes. No
half-hearted, milk and water leader will
suit the coming times or satisfy the re
quirements 'of existing democratic senfi
m nt. That sentiment, however loving
ly it may have bleu led with the halting
policy movements of the war and since,
is now in no temper to he satisfied with j
less than a live, full-blooded democrat for
a leader. And there are plenty -of such j
in the party and when the Horn comes the ;
man, we predict, will be found. Nor will
this sentiment rest content, as regardscer
tain I'uudaniT'ntal landmarks, vith less
than the f ull ancient duetr;n<gs ot the par
ty. It will insist upon (he of '
the old (’(institution limitations
upon l-Vderal power in that instrument
shall he rt speeded. If willdeman 1 that the :
mastership which the Cyn^bGovernment 1
usurped in our ]>oliti<al syst'in during the
war shall he abdicated and that tio* Sta.es
shall h * restore.! to tlieir full legal power
and dignity in the union. 1 pon these. •
and upon certain other rudluiental points,
il will listen to no compromise. No man,
therefore, who is not in accord with toe
democratic party v;pon then* issues will be
a I le to command its supp. rt in any nomi
nating convention. A live, lu!!- ! dood- d
democrat aud a clear, square /temoera i*
platform are now the requirements ot dem
ocrat ie sentiment. Aud both these will
he obtained.
That the struggle will he desperate, we
know, buf the issue, in oar judgment, is
no longer a matter ot doubt. All the
signs of the lime* point unmistakably to
the triumph "t the democratic party Uithe
next Presidential election and to its lule ,
iu this country for many years to come.

A merry Cii;i.?tmas to the Editor and
tho readers ut th .- Beacon .' By the time
tills reaches you, y u will be on the eve ot
Christmas dinners and egg-nog and many
a sturdy gobbler- that strutted in all his
pride and glory will have bench! the sun
rise for the last time. Christmas is be
ginning here in all its glory. Numbers
are already beginning to exchange whis
key straight for egg-nog an I apple-toddy,
and a few cases of indigestion from eating
too freely of mince-pie are reported to the
doctors. This is but a foretaste of what j
is to come when tho mixed drinks aud ;
mince-pics get under full headway. The
toy-shops arc a Maze of splendor and the ,
eves of the young people are open Vide
with >' ouishiiß-nt at the piles of pretty
things made to take the money out ot de
voted mother’s pockets and please the
young folks. r l oy-shops, jewellers chops,
furniture stores, fancy stores, furnishing |
stores, all are crowded, and pockets must |
suffer and suffer badly. One and all are
expecting something, and it is curious to
enter one of the stores and hear the
strange things called tor, from a penny
whistle to a live hundred dollar ring. A
few days before last Christmas, we saw-two
* ,
very pretty girls enter a store and one oi j
them nurehased the most costly revolver j
1 I
in tho house l" present to a young gentle- ,
man friend. Whether tho ball with the :
powder behind it (a la Miss Harris) was
I
j Resented or the revolver, we have, as yet,
npvr learned. Perhaps tho gentleman
came up to the mark, did the tiling hand
somely and got both girl and revolver. —
Many will be tho disappointments before
this week vs over and many a poor fellow,
before tho next year is half out, will sigh
deeply for the money he has lavished on
his Eliza Jane, and wish mos’t heartily he
had never seen her on Christmas day,
18(57. Many a poor fellow, on the other
hand, has been saving for months to pre
sent to lu* f ‘*nd Anastatia a hand
some but when he pre
sents ir. she turns up her nose—it cost 1
only t .venty dollars. He gets the cold ,
shoal ! r, for she had her eye on that three
thousand dollar diamond in Galt’s win
dow —we saw her looking at it. ly op
posite neighbor’s eldest daughter isa Ap vt

Charles Aug -tus (don’t toll it tho tM
me.) Charles Augustus gets nine dollars
a week and works hard tor it, but Charles :
Augustus indulges in a little game of i
“draw” and don’t throw a cock-tail over 1
his shoulder. G tit does a cash business,
so we have set onr w its to work to find out
where the watch and chain afo to come
from. As f>r ourselves, if we can give
Betsey and our twelve girls a smell ot
roast turkey, we shall l*c thanktul* Me
intend to have it served on our one large
ilish, and let the children, like the ghosts
in Macbeth. come in. one at a time, take ,
their smell and then go out. The inside
of the stores presents a beautiful an 1 iuter
oting sight, but the outside presents an
other picture and at no time can it he bet

iu at the win lows of tho confectionary
stores with hungry eyes, stand little chil

The Committee to wait on the Presi
dent in behalf of Dr. Mudd, has not yet,
I think, had an interview, with him. It
4C to be feared that nothing to the bene
of the Doctor will grow out of it, while
such men as 11 < lt and the members of the
i Military Comm' : n are about Washing T

lesijuc of justice from beginning 1 • end.
What Dr. Mu Id. or any of the party mow
' at the Dry Tortuga?, w re s:nt there for,
we have never been able to learn. Ihe
principal charge against P.*. Mu l l was
his shooting at one of his negroes who he
believed attempted h's life, f>r on that
point II >lt se-uned to bear wita all Ills
force when the least thing was offered in
the Doctor’s defence. and compa
ny entered on that trial with full determ
ination to murder every soul they could
get their hands on and to have one glori
ous feast of blood. Not one word of evi
dence did they allow that could possibly
benefit one of the prisoners Every ob
j jeetiou made by Holt was sustainou and
every objection ma le by the defence was
overruled. Days and weeks the grand trag
! eJy wasgoing on, every avenue for squares,
to the prison bristled with the bayonets of
soldiers. It was a glorious feast for the
struii;: minded ones who would crowd within
a yard of the railing in front of Mrs. Sur
ratt and ask each other, loud onough for
J the poor lady to hear, “ Dou t bdie look
i like a devil V” “1 hope they will hang
her, don’t you T and hundreds of such
expressions. J here sat Mrs. Sir.ratt,
manacled down, with a heavy blaeiv tod
over her face, exposed fur weeks in in
tensely hot weather, to tlie gaze and in
sults of a heartless rabble. 1 hat was but
the be cunning of what was to come. Mil
-1 Jtary eoutmissions were to be tlie order of
the day and woe to him or her \y.io dared
to differ with the powers that be -it was
! treason and your fate was sealed. Ihe
old Penitentiary was to have been the
Basilic of modern times and it never was
to be empty. Davis, Bee, Stephens and
every man who had taken sides with the
South, was to be confiuedftlicrc and hung,
no time allowed for the shortest prayer ;
trial in the morning—execution in the
evening. A dozen or so of executions
was to be gotten up to give Holt, Stan
ton, Wade and Sumner an appetite for
dinner. Blood was to* flow like water.
But for the manly interference of Mr.
Johnson the civil courts would this day
be closed and have existed only in name.
| It is to bo hope 1 that the honest people
iof tlds country will keep fresh iu their
' minds the acts of eruoky perpetrated by
the rulers in those days and, when the
time shall come, make each and every one
answer at the bar of’ ’.dice tor the black
est and most born. :o crimes that e\a r a
-a nation.
Frank Leslie of last Saturday is out
i with another great sensation picture —the
whipping of a Negro iu Delaware. Two
i men were convicted, sonic months since
in Delaware of burglary, ami, by the laws
of that State, wore sentenced to be whip
ped. The white man is seen in tae dis
tance with his hand to his eyes crying,
but, iu the fore-ground, in full view,
stands the negro being whipped by the
Sheriff —the observed of all observers.—
It woub 1 lie but an act of simple justice
if the Editors.of certain weekly illustra
ted papers could l*o placed "i the same
position and be condemned t'o receive one
lash on their # baeks for every falsehood
they liave'illustiated and published dur
ing the last sown years. By the time it
was over there would not be much of them
left. These illustrated papers, by the
.Toss and unblushing falsehoods they
have Ih n ] u’ lishing during and since the
war. have done mure to mi-h ad public
opinion ami to keep up bitterness of feel-
I | Ul r iu the Nation than all the other pa
per? in the country. There has been no
falsehood too gross for them to publish.
Thev have coined millions, roll in luxury,
are received iu decent society and are
limited upon as honest men—all obtained
bv poisoning the public mind with false
hoods of the basest ami most slanderous
1 character, which tiny know to bo such at
the time that they publish them, and
which had their origin in their own cor
rupt imagination. The dsy is not far dis
tant when this Nat b n will find how they
have been deceived and when that day
ooaiee it will B- one of terrible reckoning.
General Grant's letter of lvic# to ihe j
President made its appearance in the In
telligencer of Wednesday. We think
I the people bore the removal of Stanton
j and Sheridan remarkably well, the (lone
mi’s opinion to the contrary not withstand
j ing As yet we see no signs of civil war,
j and Congress, with the removal of Stan
-1 ton and Sheridan staring them in the
, face, dared not impeach the President. —
iln our bumble opinion the people will
bear the removal of a great many more iff
; the same sort and not con.plain. Indeed
we may say that the more that are remo -
■ ed the better. We think a large majority of
hmo st white m n will be pleased to see
Sheridan retire to private life.
Congress adjourned on Friday evening.
1 j We earnestly hope its members xsill re
: maiu much longer than they intended, as
“ the people are heartily tired of hearing
‘ their vulgarity and abuse, as these con
s ! statute their chief stock in trade. The
- i country can well afford to do without them
i for gome time to come and the unfurtu
j nate tax-pavers will save by their absence.
The weather has 'moderated c msi Icmbly
within the last twelve hours ami the rain
of last night and to-day has carried ofl
. some of the snow audSee. I nless it turns
morning, the river will be
■ open sufficiently for navigation to bo re
. sumed, which will be a great bl ssing, as
oysters are getting very scarce and are of
a bad quality. Winter, ym know, with
out o sters is hardly bearable.
