Perhaps, however, Oen. Grant wmdd dp well to ri qulro from him n writtoii stipula tion that ho would not appoint Arrr.inuN Oaksmitii one of his deputy collectors. Wo fed bound, however, while advocating the pretensions of Gen. Woonrotti) to tho plae?, not to overlook the merits of other and no less distinguished friends of Presi dent Gua.nt. 'J'hcro isJosiir.v F. IlAtl.f.T i If ho aiunot Cght as the military title of Woot'KoiiD would seem to Imply that he ran Haiixv has left no doubt whatever of his rapacity to do what Is sometimes couri ered tho next beet thing to lighting he cau run away. It might bo ditlicuH to find tho original Daii.kv ; but if the President will apply to the Count JoANSEs.be will hunt up half a dozen spurious Uaii.CYS, who will answer his purpose fully as well. In fact, wo should not wonder If Uailuv himself would now prefer to bo ono of tho spurious IlAll.r.YS rather than tho Simon Impuro Original. DAtl.UY, st least, was nover con cerned In tho slave tradu. Indeed, the sccno of lesser crimes became so dl.agrccablo to him that ho fled from It. And his own of. fcuoes sink into venial faults when It Is re membered that ho thoroughly hated tho Judges of tho Supremo Court, and headed a conspiracy to send ono of them to tho State Prison. Gen. GnANT tnay say that ho has no faith in Maii.ky, because he left tho city before tho election and did not remain to vote tho Re publican ticket. Hut then tho President de clared that ho had lost all faith In human nature after reading Poivmt's letter; so, it follows, If ho has no faith In Uailuv, neither has ho any falih in anybody el'c. Perhaps, however and judging from the latest man ifestations of his tnate, wo arc confident that it Is so Mr. Uaiixy might prefer a foreign inissiou to a homo appointment. Any place that ho could expect here might bo too con fining. Ou tho whole, therefore, we are forced to come to the con elusion that Woonront) Is the man. Ho is certainly a better criminal lawyer than Judge WoonttClT, nnd it would rcquiro a great effort oil his part to mako himself a poorer Collector than any other of Gen. Quant's favorites. N. U. If Mr. WooDfoiiu will take a copy of Tub Sl'N containing this article, and copies of Tim: Svn containing somo essays upon himself which attracted tho notice of his friends, published leforo tho election, and an autograph letter, plainly written from our biloved fileud and follow-sojounicr In this vale of tears, tho Hon HoitACi: Gr.uu.UY, expressing, not a recommendation of Mr. Wooiruiti, but Mr. Gnxnt.i'.Y'.-i opinion of TilK Su.v, we rnv if ho will take all these In ono hand, aud n Lottie oi'Old Hye which will be profcrablo to nn olivo branch In tho other, and carry them to tho President, wo think he will leave the Wluto Iioure with the commission in li's pocket.

Mr. I.uwts has introduced In tho I'tilted States Scnnto a bill grunting to the r-hounn-doah Valley Railroad Company, to all In constructing a railroad frcm Hagerstown, Md., to KuEEcllville, Tcun., sx sections of land per milo for each rullo of tha rail road constructed by tho company ; tho lands to lo (.elected ftom the public do main not appropriated by settlers or others. Tho lauis which it is proposed to g.vo to this railroad corporation belong to the wholo people. What pretence can l.e off'red by tho supporters of the bill, if it has any, for taking public projerty in the extreme West and bestowing It upon the privato owners of a local Improvement in tho East, It is difficult to imagine. Tho policy of granting to a corporation build ing a railroad through n wild and unset tled country alternate sections of land, as an encouragement to tho enterprise, is jus tified by sound business principles. Tho construction of such a road attracts settlers and greatly increases the worth of the ter ritory through which it passes. That por tion of tho lands rceorvid by the Govern ment becomes of mmii more value after the road is in operation than tho entiro terri tory wonld have lecn without the Improve mnt; and eo a valuable consideration is glvon In return for tho donation. Hut in a cace like tills of the Shcnnn doah Valley road, no" ouch argument can bo urgid in favor of tho proposed muisuru. Tho company might ask that an appropria tion should be mudo Irom the United Statis Treasury to build their road with quite as much propriety as to beg n gift of public lands for thnt purpose. Mr. 1'lsh will Itcmiiin. We are enabled to state that Don IIaui ton Ficit, our Spanish Secretary of State, has abandoned the Idea of resigning his of fice nnd intends to slick. This ho does In compliance with the dictates of his own taste, which aro in favor of holding office, and with tho dttlro of President Quant. It Is true that some timo ago the President mado up his mind to d'spenso with the teniois of Dou 1IaI1I."iU., and made ovenurrs to Senator Mohton to tuke his place ; but since then a now seal has been kludlod in Mr. Fish for tho annexation of Snn Domingo, and with this tho Prvnidnit Is plcattd. The correcpoudenco with Mr. MoT I.15Y, nibllhbtd undtr hla name, has been regarded lib unubiially clrver for a Secretary of State ; and General Grant has likewise be come convinced that a man like Mr. MotlTON lit the head of tho State Department would I it ilangcwiiH to his hopes of i rcnominntion in lbiU. Anybody ean see that theso aro very good reasons why Mr. IVn bhould remain. Another cause lias contributed powerfully to Htrcngthcn this conclusion, There has never le.cn an Administration in which tho President's wife has exercised so great un lutluenco as the present ; and It Is well undor btood in soc.ity at Wabhlngtou that Mrs. Git ANT has been unwilling to part with Mrs. FlMl, becaitM) slio has found her assistance very vuluablo In conducting tho nodal side of the Government. There havo lecn times since tho advent of tho prcBont Admlnlctratlon when wo havo ardently hoped that Mr. Fisii might bo sV porsedtd, and some statesman of talent and character, llko Mr. i'nuimi'i.i. or Gov. Molt TON, put In his place ; but since duatiny will not havo it to, wu cheerfully acuulctcc in tho d. rco. ludi ed, 1' Is better thus, With Mr. Fih In tho State Department, Gen. Guant' Cabinet has a symmetry and a consistency Milieu It would loto If n mau of intellect and force were to take that office. Mediocrity and Incapacity being thegcnetal rule of tho Administration, Mr. Fish is nt home In It. He is emphatically the right man In tho right place. Ho Is his son-in-law, Mr. Sidney WEnt.Ti.rt, advocato of tho Spanish cut throats nnd slave-tradert' In Cuba, and so Is Mr. UNinoiT Davis, bribe taker. They nil belong together, and Gen. aitAKT does not wii-h to separate, them from each other or from himself. Mr. Faubnb, of Sari Domingo notoriety, ri-ccntlr unboiotncd liimclf to the Hon. Oronos Aivr.tD Towjtuisn, of the Chicago Triiunt. Fabcks has had the work to be done by (Jen. Un ist'a CunitiiiuioucM all cut and dried for tbem. They are to go iu tiro days aud a liulf to Puerto Pitta, ttktrs ox carts arc to b in rci'Uimi to rcceiro tlicw. Tho ox carts are to take tlitru through tho ihoal water to the shore, after which lucy aro to bo packed on mules forty-fire miles to St. Jro, tho grcnl city of tho Interior, where Hacz ha fitted up an old palace for them. Here tlic Commis.Mon will rel five day', after which they uill proceed lo La Vi-ja, Cotut, aud San Cuilos, luriviujj after a jourucy of tiro weeks at the capital city of San Domingo.

It will be teen that Mr. iV dens has arranged everything to his onu entiro satisfaction. There mukt 1 c something In tho atmos phere of Kentucky that excrcifes tn intlucuco iu exciting to ilolcuce lliuto who hrcatlie it. livery niail brings accounts of shootings, stubbing", and other uianifcataliins of butted and wrath occurring in that unlir.ppy State ; and noir no havo a description of a Irco light auiung Iho Shakers at l'li-asanl Hill, or Shaker town, near IUnodibttrg, in which fists cud stones ivcro freely utcJ, and one of the pugnacious broad brims was stubbed n itli a pocket knife by another of (he fraternity. Such an occurrence would hare teemed almost incredible had it been to. catcd in any other bt.ilo than Kentucky. Nu arrests ncro made, as it was the first fight Iho Shakers bnd indulged in fur severul jcars. Wo loam from tho Mexican Mario OJitial that dientions bare recently occurred in toTcrul States of Muxico, their Governors and I.cgMatitrci refusing lo recoguiio each other. In theso cases some of tho Legislatures culled upon President Jcjihlz to send Federal troops to remove tho Governor ; but he reiuacd, l.is Aduiiniatration being convinced that tuck r.c tion "vfc'iild be i-quikuleiit to attacking tho -ove. rciiruly i.nd iiidepondeuce of Iho States." Iho subject was then brought before tho national Congress by an application for trnopa from tha Legislature of Jalisco j but Conjrc." alto refused and approved the courso of tho President. This is diOcrcut from it hat has been ilonom thi coun try. Tho national rulers of Mexico appear to have a greater respect lor State lights than thota of the United State". The onlv iU xlcan Slate where these quarrels haiu resulted ill an open outbreak i (iueriero. (Ion.

Ar.er. was re-tmed to his functions uithout bloudsUed, and still governs Ihe people of Guerrero. It is reported In tho H'orW that the Com missioner of Internal Itcrenuc has addressed a complimentary letter to those collectora and is scssora who nre to bo rclicicd from of.ice in con. sequence of the consolidation that uro to occur in various places. The Commissioner trusts they ii ill appreciate tho Uehcato position In which both tha l'i'csidcut and himself have been placed in being obliged lo discriminate between faithful and efficient ufliceu, by turning out some aud re taining oilier?. The tliiDiiittd collectors aud assessors in tins city must be Haltered bythisiott sawder, when they reflect that Joux MclUao U to be retained in office as Collector of tho consolidated Third Dis trict, although he Is notoriously Incompetent to perform the duty, aud although a defalcation of 150,000 has been discovered in hi otlice nlthiu the last few months. Tho Sunday Courl r discusses the question of Mr. Conkuno's succeswr In the United t-'tatea Senolo. Asiuming that the S'ate elections of tldaycar and the next will ge. Dcmncrotic, to tint iu 1673 both the State rknato and Assembly will bo in the interest of the Democratic party, tho Courier says that if Gov. Horm! should nut i un fur the Presidency In 1872. lie will corUluly be chosen Senator; but that If he Is out of Iho contest, Jlr. Swsisr i.nd Mr. Twisn will bo Iho most prominent candidates; and If they should prefer to remain In private life, cither Gin. Plocvm, FeskAsno Wood, or Henisv ( Mcsnit will probably be tuken. Hut we fancy thut theso second-class politicians would havo In bland aside, uml that the choico must bo between Mr. Sivrarir and Mr. Tnixn. The former has ricvur held any IfgWlative otlice-, whllo tho latter lias long been a leader of Iho Senate of this State. No doubt the Democratic party uill bo t.itlstled with cither of thcin. liut how would it be if both kliould hanker after the prize T To that largo class of persons with whom tho Inaurunce of their lives for the benefit of tlioir wives and families is a ineuaiito dictated not only by prudence, but by duty, no would earnestly cumuie-nJ for examination the lajt statement of the Mutual Life Insurance Company, published in our adveitlsiug columus. It is uccd'ic to romotk that, if it Is north nhile lo tale out a policy at all, it ought to be taken In tho very best and soimdeat company attainable. Such a company the Mutual it, be. yuud question. With invested assets to tho amount of $ti,C0D,Oo0, an income of 14,889,000, to secure policies to the amount of t'iSJ.til.l'O'1, ii large part of which aro on young lives, which havo iu all probability many years yet lo run, it presents tho maximum of seenrity at rates quite at favorable as those of tho thukiest concerns. Reports of gold discoveries nro becoming very common of late iu localities whero Ilia ex istence of tho precious luetalt has uot hitherto been tuspecUd. In Sioux City, lown, tome uicu found indicatiout of gold on tho outskiitt of the town, and in a few hours four hundred peoplo wero ou Iho ground with paus, pickaxes, aud spades, prospecting with great enthusiasm, i'an ufler pan of earth was washed, and the color showed in neatly every pan. Ciaima wots staked out In all directions, aud within forty, eitflit hours a meeting had been held and meas ures adopted for the formation of a joint stock uiiuiug couiiikur. with teu thousand shares at ftva dollars each, for th purposs of Working thi claims and protecting tho right of the claimants. In the mean time, tpecimcna pf the newly dis covered (old were submitted to analyst!, and found to coniltt entirely of iron pyrites, or "fool gold," and brass. The Iron pyrites doubtless came na.urally where It was found j but the brass, being a factitious metal, or coin pokillon, had avidoiitly been planted by simu lators to gull Iho credulou. In I'corla, 111., two professional well-diggera named Tiuoit, father and son. hae set Iho people wild by declaring that an Immense gold nilns unite rlies thi town. Their story is, that dining the past seven or eight years they hate taken out of the soil, in digging wolts, quaitz containing pirtlclta of gold, aud in some cases solid uuggtt. They claim to have fwuud about seven pouiidt of gold altogotuer in that time, aud any thai they have had several of Ihe specimens letted by jewellers, wbo bars pronounced them genuine. Thsy bavo kept the matter a secret, wailing uutll they should tlrika a big lead, which, Ihcy tay, they have now done. Tho Tauoiis say Ihcy hive discovered nine mines In and around i'enria, sure, and that a company from abroad it coming suou to work them; all of which, In Kpito of its improbability, has created great excitement among tho 1'coriaus. Wo see It roported in kpiuo of tho pajiers) lhat Mr. A. T. Stswaki has given fivo hundred dollars to Ihe Homo and School for Soldiers' Or phans. We congratulate him on it. and hope ha felt no pang as he signed the check. When ho sent back the tickets to tho fair, ire chronicled the fact ; but we take a great deal more pleasure in re-cording hit repentance. Wo have hopes of him; and If ho will fei In with us and adtucalo a steam railroad under Ilroadway, we will bclicra there is a chniioc of hia getting a human heart in his bosom afier nil. Tho recent Ku-Klux outrages In Kcntuiky bur luil tho effect of artudng pehiic opinion to a sense of the disgrace which such proceedings bring upon the authorities and the community at large. The Frankfort Vtoma thinks that Ilia appointment cf a lfgiflatlie committee to In voatigato theso acts of lnnh'ssnes, and prompt action for their piuiitkment, will be worth more In Iho Slate than all the laws cud bills to amend town chatters ar.d Incorporate turupiko com panies which can be iutioduccd. The Louisville Court' r-Jovnuil frankly admit that tho Dem ocratic party Is responsible for the maintenance of law aud elder, and that it cannot nfl'ord to carry so much as the appearance of complicity with the iltlainy which lias disgraced tl.e very neighborhood of Iho Stale capital. It says : "We havo been in Ihe habit of complaining of Federal iutcifercucc, aud ao far hato escaped its most odious forms, llut miles ue tct cur house iu older, nc shall have no right to com Lin, and will not be cblc to trcrt It." " Halnnce," in iho sense of "rest" or " remainder," tccu. lo loo ia. rilo woid with great men. President Ousnt frequently uses it, and now another distinguished suiJicr, lien. Wil liam M. Twrrn, Jr., has is'ueri a notice, In which he says that the intended parnde and reception iu honor of the exiled IVuians cannot take place " until Ihe aitlral of the iu'iiMrt of Ihe party." We do not wish to be fastidiously critical, but it stems to us that so large a company of patiiott Usi rve to be spi ken ol with nu re respect than ns ir tl.ey weie only an atray of llguiet required to nuke two sides of an eecom.t equal ouc another thul is, bul.nce. Shoes must be very botily nuidn In France, if the reported experience of tho l'runch soldier proict anything.
