Now, look up onr article again, and sec wheth
er it contains anj thing in coutlict with our last
statement. The tcnnr.of your"bigyani" was,
that tho road was to bo removed from White
Clond, and yon w ere in strong hopes that it might
be remov ed as far baek as Hiawatha. We stated
that the tympany intended changing the track
from Doniphan, and contemplated remu ing still
farther west of Troy, and wire ev en examining a
route miming near Highland, striking Mill Creek,
and re-entering the present line before reaching
Whito Cloud in fat f, that theru was no intention
of leaving White Cloud, and running across the
back-buno westof Highland. This assnrauee was
given by Maj. Filth, tho very day he met with
his fatal accident. If the Company has since
come to a diHerem, conclusion, we have not heard
of it. Weiuay add, that it was not above, but be
low Iowa Point, whirethat washing occurred, and
that a fa w rods of track have been removed a
shjiff distaiico ;u toward the bluff, because of the
near encroachment of the ri er. r
Since tho alovc was written, wc have seen a
statement that the road w ill not be remo ed from
Doniphan; and if this be the case, there will
probably be no ihangn in the line whatever.

A Kw EXPEBIMEXT. Some genius has concelT

out, a new idea in tlie convention business or,
rather, has nndertaken'a new experiment. It is
to hold two State Conventions this yesr oueat

inate candidates for Congress and Presidential
Electors. There are so many ouHce-buiigry fellows,
that there is danger f their continuing and
rnnning tbe machine. Tliis doable arrangement,
it is argued, will make it impossible for the, wire
pullers to be at both plates at once, and tbey can
not trade on to extensive a scale as they other
wise could, ud, conseqneiitlv well, we suppose.
consequently, some nieu n ill be nominated, anil

Grant have known all alsmt him since Dotielson

and do not care to know them." Horace Greeley.
"While asserting the righUof every Republican
to his nntrammcled choice of a candidate for next
Pn-suleiit until a nomination is made, I venture
to suggest that General Grant will he far better
qualified for that momentous tnist in 1672 than
he was in lt?G3." Horace Grreley.
"We are led by him who first taught onr ar

in the East also. Richmond wonldnnt come to

"Yes; General Grant has failed to gratify
snme eager aspirations, nnd has thereby incurred
some intense hatreds. These do not and w ill not
fail; and bis administration will prove at least
equally -vital. We shall hear lamentation after
lamentation over his failures from those whose

At the close of the called session of Congress iu
1801, Lieutenant General Scott emphatically de
clared, "That Senator Wilson had done more
work in that short session than all the chairmen
of the Military Committee had rifone for tha last
tw'enty years. " " - "

One to increase the pay of private soldiers.
One to facilitate the discharge of disabled sol

One (a second bill) to increase tho pay of sol

He introduced a bill which abolished slavery iu
the District of Columbia, and which liecame a

The bill to make colored persons a part of the
militia, and tn authorize the President to receiv e
them iu the military and naval serv ice, and to
make free the mothers, wives ami hildren of all
such jiersons, was introduced by Henry Wilson,
ami passed July 17, ltAii.
He advocated the emancipation of the slaves of
the S'Mlth as far back as lrf.IT.
He introduced a prov ision, vv hich liecame a law
on the 21t of May, Iiu2, providing that persons
of color in the District of Colnmbia should be

which white persons are tried, and if convicted,
to lie liable to the same innalty, and no other,
than white persons would io liable to for the
same offense. This act nullified the brutalizing,
degrading and inhuman black code of the District.
He introduced innumerable bills securing to the
soldiers their bounties, pensions, back pay ami all
other rights which they had so dearly earned.

Dana as Jailer. The Washington Patriot has
dragged a very unpleasant incident out of the
historical rubbish in w hich it should havelK-eii
allowed to rest.. After mentioning the faet that
Dam. is for Greeley, and that Greelev is for Jeff.
Davis, the Patriot says that when Jeff. Davis was
brought to Fortress Monroe after his capture,
Charles A. Dana, at that time Assistant S -cretary
of War, was then-, and was supposed to have
general charge over the arrangements for the re
ception of the distinguished prisoner. On the
next morning, by the onler of some one, a pair of
shackles w ere put on tho legs of the broken spirit
ed captive. It was a most cruel and useless in.
dignity, fur the infliction of which there was not
tbe least necessity. The Patriot plainly intimates
that Dana was not responsible fortius "super
serviceablo atrocity." The paer over which
this gentleman presides has had a great deal to
say about the iKHTowiug of certain letter books
from the War Department bv Gen. Bedenu. We
Ushould be glad to know w hether he understands
tlie insinuations contained in tlie follow ing para
graph from the article in the Patriot to have any
personal application :
"Now, without dwelling even for a moment on
such memories, history has a right to know un
less every rcconl of shame has lieen desf rov ed
who was responsible for this folly: the War lie-i
parlment, the attendant ilajor-Ueneral, or tlie
snbonllnato officer in immediate command. For
our part, we acquit the last, and look higher for
those who disgraced a glorious and victorious
cause by such snpcrscrvlceahle atrocity. But the
stniggle of history after tnith is doomed to be a
very hanl one. We look for a fire before the
reform administration conies in."
Mr. Gkeelev. Of all thnaieu in thiscountry
wlio pretend to any know ledge of political econ
omy, we know of none who have studied it so
little as Mr. Greeley, and none w hoes studies, such
as they are, have been to so little purpose. A
witty journalist sain nt mm mat -lie wnsaselt
made man who worshipped his Creator:" and
certainly the little that he knows of imlitiral
economy he has.ev olved from his own iuurr con
sciousness. We don't quite believe that when a
rural admirer asked him what he thought abont
broom corn, as a profitable crop, he advised him
tn cultivate the kind of brooms that had rings on
the handles, as morn productive than the plain
handjcl -mtyi. lmf hi opinions on iMilitical
economy are hardly less crude or less absnnl than
this advice to his agricultural friend. Wedded
to a theory for which be is indebted partly to
Henry C. Carey and partly to a long-forgotten
periodical called The Plough, Loom, and Jneil
whose great theory was that a horse should drop
his manure in the stable-) anl,and not in I he road

Washburn, jr. Mr. Sumner sajs that he "an

Gov. Washburn, who was then a memberof Con

1854. delivered a speech in whicli he said: "Men
who think alike must act together. Freedom

There is no objection, I presume, to an unfortu

Such jiersons are extremely virtuous on that sub

And then we had other charges. Then came

THE SUIENCM ARMS SALES,
After tltat charge was worn ont, a new one was
concocted, now familiarly known as tlie rreurli
anus scandal a charge that we had sold anus to
France, and were likely to make an enemy of
Gennany of the Germans who had stood by us
throughout onr civ il war. Tlie. charge was really
made with the object of alienating the patriotic
Genitalia of thls'conutryrpmi the Republican par

slander there is such a thing as innuendo, and
the Senator from Massachusetts, by the innuen
does iu his sjieech, would leave the impression on
the country that President Grant has appointed
men to office w ho made In in gifts. Im-anse of the
Tact that tlieydnl make gills, in otner words, mat

one may plea to tenu it, I say. ami take the re
sMinsibiIity, for the President of the I'nitcd States,
of deiioiiutingit as false and basely false. I do so
fur the reason that men havexbeeu appointed

Grvxt's First Council ok 'War. Gen. Grant
had been iu tlie battle of Mexico, and I had beeu
in Mexico one v ear, too. I had lieen in one or
two battles in Mexico; but I was only Lieutenant
then. Iliad fonght in the battle, of Vera Cruz
and Cerru Gonlo, and Killed I don't know how
many of onr enemies, for I never counted them.
Laughter. So we went along with Geu Grant
to Fort Donelson. One day we hail a council of
war a thing I never attended iiptotb.it time,
and I don't believe there is a Democrat hero who
ever attended oiieat all. Geu. Grant had n lxiat
on the river, and he called Gen. McCleniand, and
Gen. Lew Wallace, and Gen. Cfias. F. Smith, and,
as I was Colonel commanding n brigade, our
Brigadier-General invited me to go with him.
We went on the lxnt aud sat down. At that
time old Commodore Foot e hail taken Fort Henry
before vv e could get to it. Laughter.
We were going to take Fort Donelson, fourteen
miles away, so lien. Grant opened his council of
war and invited us all in. Wo had some ice
water, which was very desirable laughter, and
he gave us a cigar, and wo sat down fifteen or
twenty minutes, ami not a worn was sum ny anj
body. Laughter. Gen. Grant cat there a while,
with one leg over the other, looking a pleasant
as anybody I ev er saw, right in the midst of the
enemy, who were only fourteen miles aw ay, while
all hearts were tilled with trepidation, for we felt
that the destinies of this great nation were upon
our shoulders; aud it was a pretty alanning time.
After a while the General got np, walked out on
the guard, and. on returning, asked us if we had
an thing to say. We told him w e had lio'r. Wo
then asked the General if he had auv thing to say.
and he told us he had not, and so the council of
war broke np, and tuat was tus hrst one ami tlie
last one I ever attended. Laughter. doe.
Ogleaby't St. Lonlm Speech.
Speaking of the confused and embarrassed con
dition of the pecuniary ntl'sirs of the 7Vioiiiir, be
fore they were taken ill charge by Thomas
McEIrath, Reavis, in his new life of Greeley savs:
"Notwithstanding the natural gifts of Horace.
Greeley, he was and is deficient iu those qualities
necessary' to manage successfully the financial
and practical details of a business establishment ;
and probably the Triomie conld never have at
tained the position it subsequently did, had it not
been that this want in uiau.igeini lit was supplied
when Mr. Greeley formed a co-partnership with
Thomas McEIrath." Here, then, is a man whom
his eulogists admit to be incapable of success as
the executive head of an ordinary husinss estali
lishmeiit, whom, neverthlrss, they propose to
make executivchead of the nation. He is totally,
lamentably deficient iu capacity for executive
work ; and j et, having personal ends to serve,
or for siuneother"liberal" reamni,tliry propose to
make him'President, and thus give him charge of
the whole business of the United States. il'orcet

A story is told on Mr. Greeley which makes his
present association with Gratz Brown on the
presidential ticket seem a little curious. In the
falloflCTO, before the November elections, the
great and good old man made a tour of the West,
and visited Missouri among other States. Brown
was at that time miming for Governor, and with
good prospects of success. When Greelev re
turned, he was met by several Republican friends,
who asked respecting the political indications.
He gave his opinion about all tbe States be hail
visiteil.aml finally came to Missonri. Now, said
he, in that squeak so familiar to those who have
heard him in bis swearing mood, that d d little
red-headed cuss, Gratz Brown, is going tn give
that State to the Democrats.
The Savannah News savs if Horace Greeley is
indorsed by the Baltimore convention, tbe cam
paign iu Georgia will be disastrous to the De
mocracy; will result in division and bitterness:
will bring about' discord and dissension, and
will carry the State back to tbe days of of carpet
bag rule. Tbe demoralization will be complete,
aud, we fear, final. Hut we warn tbe
politicians now that tbe indorsement of Greeley
by -the Baltimore convention will collapse the
Democratic party, not only in this 8tate, bnt
tbrongbout the South. In tbe eveut of snch
nomination, tbe State of Georgia will go for Grant
by 20.000 majority. Tbonsanda of Democrats will
remain array from the polls rather than stnltify
themselves by voting for Greeley.
It is said that Senator Sumner's bouse is fairly
cumbered with gifts received from onrrepresenta
tivea abroad dnring his chairmanship of tbe Com
mitteennForeignRelalions. They overflowevery
room, from tbe wine vanlt to tbe attic. Some of
them are of great value in a commercial point of
Tiew. And still nn one has ever reproached Sen
ator Sumner for receiving these gifts. These have
not lieen held np as evidence ofbis incompetency,
or as impeaching his honesty or independence.
Some years ago a man who bad led American ar
mies to victory, who stood acknowledged ra Amer

TlIK Washington correspondent of the Xew
York Herald tells the following v ery proliablestorjr :
The conduct of Mr. Sumner at this juncture is
unfavorably contrasted with that of Mr. Stanton
in regard to a circumstance 'somewhat identical.
The latter had more than oute Inxn made by
Preoideut Lincoln the recipient of his viewacou
ceniing the Massarhticrtts en.itor, aud they wero
too mueh in acconl with those now entertained
try Sumner's enemies -iih eruing his egotism and
arrogance and the paucity of his recent achieve
ments, to be flattering tn his vanity. On one oc
casion in particular, whileintheSecrctarv'sroom
in the War Department, Mr. Lincoln lost his tern,
per iu wanning nn with tbe oft-recurring theme,
and demanded to know what Snmner had ever
done that ho should presume to dictate the whole
policy of the Government on eviry question, and
linnnl with treson and imbecility the men who
had done tlie work of the nation, while he stood
vaporing vvith idle wonls. Xeither liefore nor
after the death of Mr. Lincoln did the Secretary,
who madr tbe liest excuses for Sumner tint ho
could devise at the time, ever repeat the occur
rence to an body so far as known, and only the
excited manner "and loud tones of the President,
which crried the conversation outside the private
room, preserved tbe iuiideut for the future.
Another "outrage' has been perpetrated.
This time by the Radical Judges of the Supremo
Court of the Strife of Ohio. At great expense the
general government has provided an asvlumnr
home for disabled soldiers and seamen, near Da.v -ton.
Ohio. The crippled veterans who liav e taken
refuge there do not think they should lw disfran
chised because they lost a leg oran ami in defence
of the Hag, and have claimed tbe right to vote.
It might Ixs supposed that a party which clamors
so loudly for amnesty and enfranchisement for tho
Confederates would not object to allowing tho
disabled Union soldiers thn same rights, but it
is not so. The Democrats of Montgomery county,
Ohio, challenged tlieir V otes, and the question was
taken to the Supreme Court of Ohio, which re
cently decided that a crippled I'nion soldier does
not forfeit his right by lieromiiig nn inmate of
the home provided for him by a grateful country.
The Cincinnati Unqnirrr is very much exereiscd
over tlie derision, and asks, "can an honest in.m
consider it without a feeling of loathing and dis
gust " We think the avenige patriot and honest
urm can contemplate it with the most perfect
serenitv and satisfaction.
N. V. TkiiicneGilvtis. Humlredsof thousands
of bundles of the Xew York Weekly Tribune, laden
douu with notorious lies against, Graut are now
being sent by mail teilhout any pontage.
The trick is to address the packages to contitry
poHt-oRU es, deemliug upon the generosity of
post-masters to distribute copies among the peo
ple when I hey see that it is tun Tribune.
Post-masters nMin receiving these himdle-t
ought in every instance to stick the same in tho
stove, and report the publishers of tho Tribune U
the Piwt-tifflcr Department.
If Mr. Greeley, after having become a million
aire with his pajier, rhooses to turn free trader
mid stultify a whole life-time in the attempt to bo
President, he can at least nft'onl to pay postage.
This extra transportation of free iuaik matter
will not assist the administration much fn paying
off the public debt, and ought to be looked after.
