FOR VICE PRESIDENT,
One of the cheapest and easiest ways
to acquire fame is to change your poli
tics a few weeks before a Presidential
election, and write a letter giving your
views on the subjects before the country.
The fame obtained in this way is, to be
sure, somewhat ephemeral, but there is
lots of it while it lasts. You are certain
to have honorable prefixed to your name,
and to be described as a person of high
standing, and of wide influence, and the
prediction will be made that a large numg
her of other people, In consequence of
your great influence, will follow your
exampl e. This prediction will not be f ul"
filled, but it is no less flattering to one’s
vanity on that account.
The disputation that is going on so
fiercely as to what manner of man Colum
bus was seems hardly worth while. The
observance of the 21st of October was
conceived as a commemoration of the
discovery of America and the wonderful
progress of 400 years. That of course
brings the career of Columbus as a navi
gator and discoverer conspicuously be
fore the people, and challenges a dis
cussion of it. We believe that it is gen
erally admitted that he was an intrepid
sailor and that his perseverance in the
face of great obstacles enabled him to
reach an island adjacent to the American
continent in 1492—in short that he is en
titled to the glory that he has been get
ting for some centuries past, for it is
really because he was a bold and adven
turous navigator, and not because he was
supposed 10 possess superior moral
qualities that he has been glorified. The
fierce discussion as to whether lie
was a saint or a sinner,
whether he was a Mediterranean
pirate or a pious skipper, whether he
was responsible for the existence of
slavery in this country has very little
bearing on the commemoration of the
discovery of America. Columbus’s fame
if all these questions are settled against
him will not be disturbed, for it is iden
tified with none of them.
It is a common remark that this is the
dullest Presidential campaign in a quar
ter of a century at least. What everybody
says must be true, is a trite .saying, and
almost everybody is saying this. But
dullness and lack of interest are not nec
essarily synonymous. Our Presidential
campaigns have usually been accompanied
by a great deal that appealed to the eye
and not a little that appealed to the stom
ach. Torchlight processions and parades
of various kinds, barbecues in the West
and South and clambakes in the East
have been prominent features of them.
There has been undoubtedly in this cam
paign much less of these things, and
'their absence may account for the pre
vailing impression of dullness. Admit
ting the dullness in this sense; is there a
lack of interest? It is impossible to an
swer that question conclusively until the
vote is thrown. A large falling off of the
vote would be indicative of lack of inter
est, but until election day demonstration
of this kind cannot be had. While a lack
of interest in a President campaign
would be something to be deprecated, it
admits of much doubt whether mere lack
of noisy or spectacular manifestation of
interest is a bad sign. It is a question
‘whether a hurrah campaign is con
ducive to that thoughtful consider
ation which every intelligent ami
patriotic citizen should give to the
questions at issue, and which lie
should make the foundation of his vote.
To our mind the permanent disappear
ance of a considerable amount of the
spectucular element in our Presidential
campaigns would do no harm. Enough
of it to eulist the attention of such vot
ers as cannot be reached in any other
way may be a good thing, but so much
of it as to distract the attention of the
voters must be harmful.
A TAM MANY POET
How the Hon. Amos Cummings Used to
Stir Up the Hoys for Greeley.
In this busy age it frequently happens
that a man in one short life plays so
many parts that it is sometimes forgot
ten that he sorved in the army, or was
governor. Carl Schurz is a good exam,
pie of the one, and (Jen. Butler of the
other. No one now-a-days seems to re
member that ex-Senator Schurz was a
major-general, and Massachusetts peo
ple have pretty well allowed themselves
to forget that Gen. Butler was once their
The Hon. Amos J. Cummings, of New
York, has had so busy and eventful a ca
reer, in and out of Congress, that his fel
low citizens may well be excused if they
forget that he was once a poet, or that a
pamphlet edition of his poems was pub
lished by the New York Sun as long ago
as 1872, and yet so it was.
The volume was entitled “The Sun’s
Greeley Campaign Songster, by Amos J
Cummings,” and we regret to say that as
a poet Mr. Cummings was not entirely
original; that here and there his poems
showed only too plainly the source from
which he was then drawing inspiration.
For example, this verse was not built
fvAm an A niflnnan rrwtrlAl "
Hurrah! we’ve won it gallantly! Carl Schurz

For Grant has cried for quarter, of ah his
The carpet knights are sorely pressed, and rid

Full well they know their borrowed plumes they

And troops of presidential kin are fleeing
through the town.
Colfax lies low with Kobeson, Ben Butler under
The trusty blade of Horace in their hearts has
found a sheath;
A nd like an angry grizzly, Fish licks his wound
Whilst victory is perching on the Hat of Chap
Mr. Cummings should have disguised
his author a little more. “After Macau
lay, a long way after him,” the average
reader of that poem must have ob
And yet Mr. Cummings could be origi
nal when he tried, and thoroughly Span
ish, capable of writing down to any one
of the people who wanted to read his
poems. For example there is (page 19)
Now despite all the sneers,
And the irowns and the tears
Of the fearful old blowers who blew so,
Horace G. will go up
And turn out the bull-pup.
With his boss, the modern Crusoe.
Chobus.—O, poor, brainless receiver!
You had better accept a retriever;
For in March, seventy-three,
You’ll be up a tall tree,
Inquiring the way to Salt Kee-ver.
There was just a suggestion of “to the
victor belong the spoils” about this
(page 49) but then the Democrats who
were shouting “Hurrah for Horace
Greeley d-m him” needed something of
the sort to cheer them on to the polls:
Come, rally round old Horace, boys,
He never can be beat;
He’ll weed the office-holder out
And sift them just like wheat.
He works all day upon the farm,
He puts his produce in the barn;
A farmer wise and great is he
To rule this land of liberty.
And this will go far to show that while
Mr. Cummings was then a poet, he was
Then raise our Farmer's banner high,
And catch the favoring gale;
Inspired with courage, zeal, and hope,
There’s no such thing as fail,
For Victory waits upon our flag
* And cheers us on our way.
To sing a Greeley song by night,
And beat his foes by day
These few extracts must be taken as
specimens of what Mr. Cummings can
do in the way of verse making. The
time may come when that little book
will be in demand. Mr. Cummings may
be the Democratic candidate for Presi
dent, and then it would work in well
when the “Life and Writings of Hon.

There may sometime be a second edi
tion (it is to be fondly hoped improved)
of Rufus Wilmot Griswold, and then the
poems of Mr. Cummings would work in
as filling, if nothing more. If nothing
else comes of them, should Mr. Cum
mings grow rich as well as great, copies
of his Grealey campaign book would
command almost any price the holder
might choose to ask. It will, all things
considered, be well for those who own
copies of that now somewhat rare book
to hold on to them, for until they com
mand a premium in the market, they will
serve to recall an almost forgotten, but
