The story of Judge Cartter'a interview with General Orant U an extraordinary one. The Judge is a well-known Republican politician of Washington, holding strong radical views, llig favorite candidate for the next presidency Is Ben Wade who is one of the (trail lest of onr puhllo men, whether a presidential candi date or not. The object of the Judge in calling upon the General was what? -It was to ascer tain, first, whether General Grant would be a candidate, and, second, if so, with which party lie would act. Mow, we have fixed upon no favorite, as yet, for the next presidency. Any one or a dozen good men whom we could name would satisfy us thoroughly. Moreover, why should we be troubling ourselves with selecting a man this summer who is not to be nominated till next f - Nevertheless, it is always a safe practice to determine who shall not be a presidential can didate. We therefore announce in advance our inflexible opposition to any and every man for the next presidency to whom party managers have to put any such miserable interrogatory as, "Sir, to which party do you belong V ... The Republican party wants a Republican candidate. A party with principles wants a candidate with convictions. A party whose policy is open and avowed demands a candi date whose opinions are definite and known. A party with a moral mission disdains a can didate of doubtful faith. We know nothing as to the authenticity f the story of Judge Cartter'a interview with General Grant. The statement, however, originates with the Cincinnati Commercial, a paper whose editor, as we happen to know, is opposed to degrading journalism by pub lishing sensation despatches containing more mischief than truth. But we refer to the Story not for its own intrinsic iinportauoe, but solely for the moral which it points. That moral is, Let the Republican party beware of seeking a Presidential candidate in any man in whom it has not long ago found an open and unequivocal advocate of its prin ciples and aims. Suppose General Grant, before the opening of the campaign in the AVilderuess, had been waited upon by Judge Cartter, with the ques tion, "General, under which flag do you pro pose to ficht?" The question would have been an insult; for it would have implied a doubt as to whether General Grant was a loy alist or a Rebel. So a question to any proposed presidential candidate, "Sir, from which party will you accept a nomination ?" is equally an insult; for it implies that the man to whom it is addressed may be ready to join either the political friends or the political enemies of his country. We are not to be understood as reflecting upon General Grant. If either he or any other man chooses to be without political opinions, this is a free country, and such idio- iBvuuraaiea are abundantly permuieu. VV littb I we insist upon is, not that ueuerai urani snau have political opinions, but that the next Re publican Presidential candidate shall have such opinions. There are many ways in which a man may honorably serve his coun try, without holding or without expressing positive and well-defined political views. General Grant has honorably served it in one of these ways that is, by leading its armies. But it is not possible that a man shall honora bly serve his country as a Presidential candi date, and at the same time be destitute of strong, well-grounded, and openly known political convictions. Thia country has suffered for three years under a President who has been a curse to it. This man was the deliberate choice of the Re publican party. That party might have chosen whomsoever it' would picking the finest spirit from among a thousand able and honest men. Its blunder in choosing Andrew Johnson was, that it did not stop to ask whether he had settled political convictions; or, if he had, whether these were in harmony with the settled political convictions of the party that committed its banner to his hands. Andrew Johnson did not cheat the Republican . party; the Republican party cheated itself. Now, God forbid our instituting any compari son, direct or implied, between President Johnson and General Graut. The one is a knave, the other an honest man. But the Republican party cannot afford to ohoose either a knave or an honest man without de finite political views. There ought to be an amendment to the Constitution providing that nereaiter no man snail be eligible te the pre sidency unless it can be proved that he be lieves something. "By faith ye are saved." The history of the Republican party is a history of mingled glory and shame. The glory of the party has been its fidelity to great moral principles; the shame, its too frequent compromise and surrender of these nrinciules. If ever in the history of the Republican party there was a time when that party needed for its standard-bearer a man of great devotion to moral principles, that time is now; that time will be the next summer's campaign; that time Will be pre-eminently the next four years of presidential administration. If the Republican iarty the party which is to elect the next 'resident shall deliberately nominate a man who is known for everything except for the one thing whioh should recommend a candi datenamely, his political convictions, inte grity, and ability the party will inevitably cheat itself, betray its trust, and shame the nation. The next administrator of the Federal Government ought to be a man with whom the love of liberty has been a life-long passion; with whom the. principle of justice is a saored flame; with whom political equality is a cher ished ideal, lie ought to be a man whose life has been identilied with the great con troversy of principles which ended in the over throw of American slavery; not a man who has been indifferent all his life long to the greatest moral movement of modern times. As Abraham Linooln was cut short in his Jjenign work of upbuilding freedom, and as his successor has been the betrayer of the Government, the nation is now entitled to a President whos soul is competent to compre hend the large proportions of the yet un finished work, whose heart is full of zeal for its accomplishment, and whose hand has had experience in the practical work of statesman ship. In God's name, let us have a great man for the next President I ArtUta and Art Critics. From Hit N. Y. Home Journal. The present relations of these professions in the metropolis are full of promise for the true growth of art, and the development of the popular taste, and judgment, The un limited praise and puffery which the press lavished for years oa the knights of the brush end cbiseh may have been beneficial iu the extreme Infancy of art; bnt a continuation of hie daily this regimen of laudatory "pap" and critical "soothing syrup" could certainly result in nothing but artistio inanity and inflation. The artist, indeed, needs the inspiration of a generous and enthusiastic! public appreciation; but let this degenerate into general, indiscrimi nate laudation, and scarcely genius herself tan resist the temptation to forego the im mortal triumphs of noble toil, and rest content with the shams of indolence and charlatanry. From this fatal influence, American art has not escaped without traces of serious injury. It must be confessed there exists to-day in the profession too much faith in the power of puffery, and too little reliance on the sure and infallible judgments of time. The few in stances in which an adroit lavishment of money and convivial favorj upon the press has gained for artists great notoriety and pecu niary profit, have affected numbers of earnest students with the mad dream of sudden fame and wealth. Have they not seen proof that there is a shorter road to success than that which the great mastors, of all ages, have fol lowed r Have they not good reason for be lieving the publio to be utterly devoid of taste and discrimination a fit subject for unlimitod dupery f What is the influence of our most prominent painters on the rank and file of artistic aspirants f Does it encourage a more hopeful devotion to the inspiration of beauty and the enthusiasm of truth, which are the very life of art, or does it rather create a dis trust of noble aims and study, and beget an impatient desire to grasp the dazzling success of Jugglery f This demoralization, which the press and writers on art have done so much to foster, seems likely, at last, to be arrested and cor rected by the same agencies. The extensive influx of a better class of foreign art-works, affording to the publio a standard for estimat ing the actual character of American art, has rendered a continuation of the old practices of fulsome laudation utterly impossible. Writers for the press, "accepting the situation," have endeavored to place themselves on higher ground, as circumstances required. The ar tists, unfortunately, could not so roadily effect a change of base. They could not unlearn the lessons of old habits, and adapt them selves at once to the sudden advance of the popular taste. Hence the ancient entente cor diale. was destroyed; and to-day the two guilds are fulminating against each other ac cusations of incompetence, ignorance, and malevolence, with a most amusing abandon and vigor. All reverence is at an end. The veriest critical tyro does not hesitate to impale artists of the most imposing newspaper fame, and dash them from his stilus as if they were only "Malthusian dust." Academies of ada mantine dignity and continental jurisdiction are belabored and badgered like the unfortu nate beast of Balaam. At the same time, critics of unfathomable bathos receive from even the squires of the brush as little con sideration as if they had always manufactured "opinions" for a price, and knew no more of drawing and painting than the mob of academicians. While bpth parties are thus exposing each other's weaknesses, the publio looks on, amused, perplexed, or indifferent, and learns a most important lesson. The utter anarchy and contradiction which prevail in both the criticism and practice of ait, serve admirably - 1 r nn fVioii nnrn vaAii nina and teach them to judge for themselves. Thus lesson they are rapidly mastering. Instances r twit niifrooiiHr. Ti which Verdicts Of bO bill V Y1 KUO condemnation, pronounced by our most pro minent critical authorities, are reversed by the tribunal of last, appeal the cultivated popular taste. This is a tendency iu the right direction, and, until art has this broad foundation in the appreciation and judgment of the people, it can never reach its full de velopment; for the artist cannot have that in dependence of coteries and that certainty of a final reward, which can warrant him in de voting his life to the noblest labors. Another great benefit likely to .grow out of this anarchy, is the introduction of a more thorough investigation of principles on the part of both artists and critics. There is un deniably an immense, deal of truth in their mutual accusations of incompetence for their professions. A thorough course of artistio training is, at present, not only unknown, but impossible in this country. The case is not much different in criticism. The above, and other benefits likely to be evolved from the present artistio chaos, fully justify us in considering the period one of peculiar cheer and promise for healthy pro gress. Abusing Stevens. FVotH the Tribune. There was a grand conservative meeting in Washington the other night; but "Colonel Tom Florence," as that gentleman publicly avowed, did not come there to make a speech. He could not help saying, however, that "there were influences in our midst which must be crushed out." Here some one in the crowd conveniently mentioned the Star newspaper, Mr. Florence's professional rival, whereupon that gentleman continued in a strain of scorch ing significance: "I did not mention any names. It was a viper, or the head of a viper, and should be trampled upon." Colo nel Tom is famous for his business-like vitu perative; but even this withering speech feebly conveys the spirit ot the Washington meeting. Most of the subsequent orators singled out that veteran and venerable statesmen, 5lr. Stevens, as the mark of a magnificent spite, and, as it, were, the object of an undying hatred, to both of whioh emotions, as indulged by the conservative class of our follow-citizens, his talents and convictions are qualilied at all times to give active exorcise. Another "Colonel, one Mr. Zeilin from Philadelphia, arose and thus swooped down upon the victim Stevens: "He (Stevens) wa3 a man not lit to live in any community, for he was a demon, and was marked as such. He has the cloven foot, and shows it, and is as deformed in body as he is in mind. It was not agreeable to him (the speaker) to allude to any man's deformity, but in this instance the mind was so like the body that the allusion was not out of place. (Applause.)" Still another "Colonel," one Mr. B.S.Leidy of Philadelphia, followed in the same manly and fearless fashion. We have it from the Washington InUUiijmcer that, referring to "Thad. Stevens," the speaker said, "He hated Masons with a vituperative hatred, and just in proportion as ho hated the Masonic Fraternity years ago he measured his hatred of Andrew Johnson naw." We are not certain that this speaker has received or expects to receive honors or emoluments in the gift of the Kxe cutive ; but ho proceeded with great correct ness to remark that Mr. Johnson was "made of different material to that which entered into the composition of Mr. Stevens," and to assert and maintain that "he (Johnson) stood in the Btoims which howled about him as a mighty oak." "Did he," asked the speaker, referring to the President's Western tour, "like William. D. Kelley, creep under the table and Bneak under the platform f Not Tell me he has no moral courage ! Thaddous Ste vens," etc. etc We have only to fancy Mr. evening telegraph Stevens anathematizing the Masons; Mr. Kelley creeping under the table; and Mr. Johnson with an oak howling about his head, to find all that is diabolical and mean and grand and during in one gorgeous epitome. The Democracy of Washington are thus, as ever, unwashed and uuterrifid. .We hear the old-style harangues of pro-slavery times word for word; see the strutting speakers, mark the meek defiant attitudes; in short, observe the ppiiit of amiable blood thirstiness and lion-like sheepishness rampant. When does not this heathtn Lilliput of Washington rage and Imagine vain things ? It is good to know that Tom Florence, who owns the Government organ, is still about, unwilling to move under a certain consideration from the Executive, and that no part.of the President's retinue have lost their spontaneous talent for abus ing Mr. Thaddeus Stevens. Washington holds them all, this sad little tea-party of effete conservatives; aud they are now about to con test with colored men at the polls the govern ment of that unlimited city. What a change, to I 6urel and what copious reasons for pouring out the vials of wrath on the wigged head of that implacable destroyer and in domitable Africanizer, Mr. Thaddeus Stevens 1 A Harmless Incendiary. From the Times. Tha necessity for military interference in such cases as that of Mr. U. R. Pollard, of Virginia, may be measured by the account which comes of his recent appearance at Lynchburg. Mr. Pollard has to live; perhaps not exactly like other honest people, but after a fashion. His latest method, as a great many have learned from the military order suppress ing him, was to give a Berics of lectures, to be delivered for a limited fee, on the subject of "Chivalry," at various points throughout the South. The order in question was wisely re voked. It would have been far better if it had never been issued. That matter, however, is .past. The Btrange thing is that so little profit has come to Mr. Pollard from his mar tyrdom. Those who know anything of the gentleman's history, or of the kind of influ ence he has been accustomed to wield, could never have been so far misled as to suppose that anything he could possibly utter would in any way affect the political sentiment of the community. The danger to be apprehended arose from the temporary eminence accorded to him as the subject of a military edict. That danger, however, is over. It appears from the report of the Lynchburg meeting that even an advertisement through the District Com mander's office was of no more use in attract ing a Southern audience than if Mr. Pollard had been allowed to post his own bills. Those who propose to lecture upon Southern chivalry, and those who deem it wise to pie vent BUch lecturing, seem to forget that the history of the Order which Mr. Pollard sup posed it to be his mission to extol, is so clearly written in the desolated hearths of the South to-day, that it is but mockery and insult to talk of it. The Lynchburg people declined to" respond to Mr. Pollard's call not (as we should judge) because they were unwilling to recognize his right to struggle for a living such as his wits might bring him, but because they pjs G6uapeIled"to deal with tha realities ef (he present instead of the visions of the past. They are quite as much concerned about seed-corn as Mr. Pollard is about "chivalry." ' That is the whole secret, we take it, of the historian's failure at Lynchburg. If anything could have got Mr. Pollard au audience, it suiely eught to have been the word put in for him by the military commander. The same sort of indifference, too, as that shown in Virginia in regard to party political move ments, unquestionably prevails throughout the South among those who have any remnaut of property left to take care of, and who feel themselves to have been the victims of the Rebel agitators. No military or party political schooling can carry to that class such practical lessons as they get at home, in the industrial struggle they have to go through under the .new social condition of affairs. If they ever come to a reviving sense of political duty, it will probably not be until they get some de grees above actual poverty and starvation. The Virginian people have iutimated as much as this to Mr. Pollard, and they may at least be commended for their common sense. Thad. Stevens on Confiscation. From the World. Mr. Stevens' letter to Mr. McPherson is but a manifestation in a different lorm of the same insolent and revengeful spirit which in Other forms js displayed by the whole Repub lican party. The passionate ebullitions of.sec. tional venom which have attended the bail ing of Jefferson Davis are quite as vengeful and ignoble in spirit as Thad. Stevens' per sistent demands for confiscation. Those Re publicans who disclaim for themselves and their party all sympathy with Mr. Stevens' confiscation views, might find, by a little self examination, that they are as truly coiilisca tiouists as he is. For what difference does it make whether you rob men of property iu actual possession, or intercept aud destroy their income To blight their fields is even a greater injury than to rob their granaries; for the property filched in the once case may be of some advantage to others, while the pre vention of production does not enrich the spoiler, and makes the sufferer poor indeed. If the full measure of confiscation which Mr. Stevens demands had been consummated two years ago, and the Southern people had been then permitted to freely use their natural acU vantages for recuperation, that section would be far richer than it is to-day. The Republi can party stultifies itself when it disclaims sympathy with Mr. Stevens, That party has virtually confiscated and destroyed all the 8outhern wealth of which it has prevented the creation. By keeping the bouth unsettled, and all its prospects uncertain, the Republican party has prevented its borrowing the capital necessary to the revival of Southern pros perity, has arrested enterprise, lettered Indus try, and inflicted evils in comparison with which Mr. Stevens' plan of confiscation would be a bagatelle. If his policy is cruel and inexpedient, that of the whole party is so on the same grounds, and to a much higher degree. Flour Cheapening. Fromthe World. New York is in the enjoyment of a little panio in the flour market. Prices have de clined in ten days from one to two dollars per barrel. The greatest decline has been in the finer grades of family flours. The supply of California flours has had an important inllu ence in promoting the decline. But. as is always the case, when prices took a slight downward tendency, supplies from all quar ters largely and unaccountably increased. Our supplies are somewhat in excess ot the cur rent wants of the market, to say nothing of the meagre business now done; and with warm weather upon us, there can be no disposition to increase stocks, but rather to decrease them, and we see no reason why the best family flours may not decline to about fifteen Philadelphia, Friday, dollars per barrel. So long as prices are above the export limits, the market has no support ; and holders can feel no safety until we ap proximate an export basis. To be sure, we phall have nothing to ppare for export for a long time, but the possibility of export orders being executed is necessary to give stability to the market. We hope our bakers will be as quick to inform themselves of the decline in flour as they were to note the advance, aud regulate the size of their loaves accordingly. The Eastern tluestlom. From the Hi raid. The projected marriage of the daughter of the Grand Duke Constantine to the King of Greece is a very significant circumstance. All the world knows that Russia has been giving moral support to the Candian insurgents; but it was done In a way to avoid calling upon herself diplomatic remonstrances. Now that it has become evident that the people of that island can hold their own, and that the move ment is likely to be participated in by other Christian populations subject to the Porte, she casts aside all reserve. This projected alliance between the reigning families of the two coun tries is a declaration to the world that, in the event of the Turks invading Greece, Russia means to make its cause her own. It will be the first step towards the realization of the policy which she has steadily kept in view since the time ot Peter the Great. The remonstranoe addiessed to the Porte in regard to Crete was, as it was asserted, merely preliminary to active intervention on the part of the great powers. Russia will lead the way by esta blishing, in right of this marriage, her claims to be first in the field. Once she takes up arms for the settlement of this and other ques tions arising out of the incapacity of the Sul tan to protect his Christian subjects, it will be long before she lays them down again. A war in defense of the Greeks would be the most popular commencement she could make towards the accomplishment of her designs upon Constantinople. There is no longer any doubt of her purpose in this regard. Royal marriages are like the straws which indicate the direction of the political current. SPECIAL NOTICES.
