1» is free from impurities, and when used with rea
sonabie care burns entirely to ashes, which are of
the deepest r« • of any Coal • nown.
An equal quantity ignited will yield at least onc
third more heat dum any other coal. It ;* more
quickly ignited than any other anthracite (thus sav
ing expense in kindlings); while after ignition, with
a proper reduction ot draft, it will outlast all other
coal, and remain longer on lire.
A much less quantity of this coal can be kindled
and will retain its lire, than can bo possibly used ot
white ash, this tact will result in large savings in
spring and tail, and ui such times as require only a
moderate degree ot heat.
In sho»r, ir is the most economical coal known
and needs but a trial to give it Ihe preference over

■ a Wrarrh far fbe Jewel.
The (op|ierbeaiU have seized upon the
klea that the uses of adversity are sweet and
lliat toad-like, it has a jewel as a compensa
tory fixture. They have the next thing to
scripture as an authority lor the conceit, and
it excites not onr special wonder to see them
searching lor the batracbiaii jewel that shall
reconcile them to the wolnl adversity that
betel them when <»en. Ulysses 8b Grant was
nominated lor the Presidency by the Repub
A metropolitan journal was the first to cry
eureka! Mr. Manton Marble ol the New
York World, a man who seems to enjoy a
monopoly of brains among Democratic edi
tors as complete as Vanderbilt's monopoly of
stock among railroad meu, thought he had
hit upon it at the very outset, and thereupon
sot up a mad cachinuation in which he still
persists. His idea was that by a constaut
dwelling upon the fact—the discovery ol
which was due to the concentration ol the
rays of his genius upon the biographical
sketches written by the elder Grant tor the
Ledger—lliat the Christian name by which
the Republican candidate is commonly
known differs trom his baptismal name and
Irotu that by which he was registered at West
Point, and that, to the still further complica
tion ot the nutter, he once had a nickname,
all the popular effect of his gi "at deeds and
the splendor ol his public services would be
completely neutralized. There was a certain
deceptive plausibility about the idea that
quite turned poor Marble’s head. For what
can he more edifying to the profound student
ot atiairs of state and the workings of the
machinery of a great government than to1
observe the queer combinations that may be
made ol the Christian names, Ulysses, Hi
ram and Simpson, and the nickname, Sam?
Charades, anagrams, rebusses and such stale
trivialties are mere vanity relatively. But it
must be confessed that even Marble's pretty
efforts to please become in time the reverse
ot amusing. To the surprise of every one it
has been found that sucli is the inherent de
pravity ot the human heart that at the tenth
repetition even the tremendous force of the
grand combination “Hiram Ulysses Simpson
Sam” is measurably exhausted, and that a
nation’s gratitude to its principal defender
cannot be appreciably weakened by that for
mula of words.
But there be other geniuses in the country
than Mr. Manton Marble, though of less emi- 1
nence; ami besides, political as well as relig
ious truth is sometimes hidden from the wise
and prudent and revealed unto babes. It
was unto a babe, probably, that it was reveal
ed that the weak point in the Republican
ticket is the fact that Grant is unable to
make a speech. It escaped the recollection
of tbe political suckling who first proclaimed
the truth, that Giant was not singular in his
reticence, and that Washington and other
men of like historical importance were as
speechless as he. Poor baby, he hadn’t
found the jewel, alter all. The people don’t
care a fig tor speeches, but show them a man
that will act, honestly, bravely, wisely, and
you shall see how they will take him to their
hearts and thrust upon him honor and power.
And so the search went on. The Knights
ol the Golden Circle were all out as eager as
the Round Table braves for the Holy Grael’
Cmlebs for a wife, Japliet for his lather, or,
to revive a legend still Iresh in the memory
of this generation, Douglas lor his mother in
1800. As bad luck would have it Donelsou,
Vicksburg, Chattanooga and Appomattox
allbrded a good answer to the allegation ot
‘‘Hiram Ulysses Simpson Sam,” ana the re
joiueder of speechlecsness was promply and
successlully met by the unanswerable sur-re
joinder ol Grant’s eminently wise, efficient
and economical administration of the War
But nevertheless the jewel is found. It
happened in this way; Giant is now rusticat
ing in the West, recruiting his health and
strength lor the arduous duties which his
country will require ol him for a term of at
least four years Irom the 4th ot March, 1809.
A select association of whiskey ringers in the
guise ol newspaper correspondents follow
him. The other day he visited Georgetown,
Ohio, where the elder Grant formerly had a
tannery, and to Georgetown went one of his
escort. These fellows apply theirjournalistic
microscopes to the minutest incidents of
Grant’s tour, and fearfu ly rack their journal
istic brains in the vain hope that something
in the political capital way may he made of
them. Anived at Georgetown, the enter
prising young man bethought him that the
paternal Grant had once clearly and palpably
snubbed him. He at once determined to
investigate the “old man.”. Peradventure
here might be the jewel. He at once subjec
ted all the old men and women in George
town to a rigorous examination—and found
tile prize I The fact is the Republicans have
made a mistake in nominating the son, for
according to the traditions of Georgetown
senility the father used to have some enemies
in that -obscure burgh. A living witness testi
tied that Jesse had a bad habit ol writing lor
the papers. The same deponent even went
so far as to affirm that Jesse hail written po
etry ! Another ancient citizen, whoso phra
seology is of itself sufficient guaranty for his
intelligence and veracity, said “he was the
elussest old cus I ever see.” But the climax
is yet to come; the last witness deposes as fol
lows ."‘Wall, there was another fellow out
here in the country. He’s dead now, but he
could 'a told ye a heap about old Jess; hated
him wass'n pizen, he did!” Dead!—and with
all that information about “old Jess” buried
with him in the tomb! Well, well, ’tisenough,
without the cumulative testimony of the de
ceased and lamented “other fellow.” We
must give up Grant.
—Mrs Elizabeth Cady Stanton, writing of
the Woman’s Club in Now York, says it is pro
posed to admit geutlemeu to the galleries to
listen to the speeches, and to hear “the pale,
thoughtful brow,” “the silken moustache,’’
“the flowing locks,’’“the tuauly gait and form,’’
toasted in prose and verse.

SPEECH OK SENATOR MORTON.
When .Senator Morton ot Indiana makes a
speech it is always worth listening to. Hei e
Is what he said in the Senate upon the Dem
ocratic nominations and platform:
I have read the resolutions adopted bv that
convention, the piat|onn ot principles i't has
aid down, and up,,n which its candidates
have been placed; and I wish to rail the at
tention ol the Senate to the issue that is pre
sented to the country by this platform and bv
the character ol these candidates.
Crenel al tyrant, in his letter of acceptance,
said, "let us lmve peace; - but the Democratic
party by their convention in New York have
said,“let us have war; there shall be no
peace.” They have declared in substance, I
might sav perhaps in direct terms, that the re
construction ot these States under tins sever
al acts of Congress shall not be permitted U*
stand, but shall be overturned by military
lorce If they get the power. They have tut
nounced that there shall be no with-meet of
our troubles, except upon the condition of
'he triumph ot those who have been In the
rebellion. Let me call your attention to a
part of tbe ei htb resolution In regard to the
very question. In speaking of the recon

Him convention has catted upon the rebels
of the South to regard tbcac government* or
ganised hj authonlv ot art* of ('ongrem by
the people of tboae Slates a* usurpations, un
constitutional, and void, and lia* tbeteby
inyu-d tbeui again to inautieriion and re
bellion. That is irhat the resolution means.
Hi at is where the Democratic party has
placed itself and its candidate, that there
shall be no acquiescence in the action of
Congress, hut that continued resistance is and
shall he llietr policy. They have replied to
General Grant by sav ing, "there shall be no
peace, but tbe war shall be reuewed.” There
eau tie no other policy lor that party unless it
acquiesces. If it does not accept these re
construction acts, the re can be no policy but
that of resistances and a renewal ol the war.
They declare these reconstruction acts to be
unconstitutional and void. Being void, no
body is bound to regard them; they have no
authority over any one to coerce or to punish;
and may he resisted by any one with impun
ity. That is not the language of this resolu
tion, but it is the substance and tbe meaning
ol it; ami in consequence of this it received
the endorsement and the approbation of the
hundreds ol rebels who were in that conven
tion Irom the South, men who organized the
rebel government, and organized and led the
rebel armies in bathe. This, then, is the
issue, a continuance of tbe war; a renewal of
tlie rebellion; because it is either that, or it is
submission and acquiescence to what has
But, Mr. President, we are not left even to
seek for it by inference. We have a letter of
General Francis P. Blair, written, I believe
less than one week ago, and this letter has
been endorsed by that convention this after
noon by his nomination as their candidate
lor the Vice Presidency.
After reading Blair’s letter which we have
already published, Senator Morton continu
Mr. President, that is the Democratic
platform. General Blair whatever yon may
say fit him is a bold, out-spoken man, and
bespoke the sentiments ol that convention.
He says, "upon these sentiments I want to
stand betore the convention;” and upon
those sentiments he was nominated. There
fore. I say that the language of the Dem
ocratic convention at New York to the whole
country is. war; resistance by toroe ol arms to
Congressional legislation; the overthrow by
force of arms of the governments that have
beeu erected in the rebel States under the
laws enacted by Congress; the continuance
of this rebellion ; continuance or this strug
gle, in a somewhat different lorm, but still
the same struggle.contending tor the same
principle, it is now announced formally, not
at Montgomery, not at Richmond, but at
Naw York. The country need not be at
any loss to understand ihe character of the
contest upon hich we are entering. It is
not one of peace and acquiescence, of con
solidation whereby the ravages of war may
be repaired; but it is a new declaration of
war, a new announcement of the rebellion
uuder somewhat different circumstances, but
Muder circumstances formidable, dangerous
and solemn. Let the couutry look the strug
gle in the lace.
General Blair has said truly tiiat all that
is said about greenbacks and bonds and ques
tions ot b nance is mere nonsense. The great
issue is the question of overturning the new
State governments by force, the restoration of
the power of rebels, er as they call it the
white men’s government in those States; and
all the rest is leather and prunella. We owe
a debt ol gratitude to General Blair tor bis
frankness. There need be no deception prac
ticed now, and there can he none. There
can be no other issue presented substantially
to us but that of the future peace of this
country. If Seymour shall be elected upon
that piatlorm, he stands pledged to use the
army of the United States tor the purpose of
overturning the governments that have b* m
established in the South by the voice ot the
whole people, at d by tuat army to place tbe
power back again into the hands of the rebels.
They were there with him in that convention.
They have given to them their counsel. They
have endorsed Mr. Seymour, and the conven
tion and all have endorsed General Francis
The great issue underlying the whole con
test, and we have the solemn declaration
ot their candidate for Vice President
to that effect, will be the renewal of the
war, to overturn the State governments that
have just been established uuder the acts of
Congress. General Blair lias relieved the
Republican party of a gaeat deal of labor. He
lias unmasked the enemy with whom we
have had to deal, and he has placed before
the country the very issue, peace or war.
