Tiewi of toe American Preai on the Scheme to Overthrow the Libertiei of the Republic. [Prom the bock port (N. T.) Union (democratic), July 0.] * * * The Hbbald makes no miitako In directing attention to the Issue wbtoa must overtop all others until It 1s Anally and Irrevocably settled. Mr. Grant's usurpation in Louisiana equals, In defiance of law, any single act of Oaesar In his progressive overthrow of the Roman Republic. To evade the rate of that Empire Mr. Grant must not be allowed to enter npou his third term. It may have been notioed by the observing that those republicans who last Fall denounced. In advance, any project looking to Mr. Oram's continuance in office beyond his present term are now retlcenl upon the subject, or venture the assertion that a third term Is likely to become a necessity I "But to say." remarks the B?au>. that "this la not a living Issue is to say what la not true." No paper baa equalled the Hkralo In shrewdly pointing oat vital questions in a political canvass. It Is vain to talk of tariflb or monopolies while tbia question la pending. [From tbe August* (Ga.) Chronicle (democratic), July .] TBI COMING 188IHL The New Tom Herald of the 6th, In -an editorial article written with great ability and force, reviews the past epoch* of our country's politics, ana forecasts the nature of the coming issue. While professedly friendly to General Grant; while giving him credit for saving the Republic In time of war and for governing It wisely and honestly (God save the mark I) In time of peace; while implying that a second term of the Presidency was a Just reward of dlsttnguished public services, the Hkkald fears that the personal ambition of the President will make Ccsarlsm?the assumption of continuous power? the issne which tbe people mast determine in 1870. The writer thinks that the presentation of sncb an issue will be a suicidal act. Grant, though the leader or his party? as completely Its master as was ever Jefferson or Jackson?cannot hope for success a third time. "Great as General Grant has shown himself to be, and powerful as his party undoubtedly la, tbe suggestion of a third term, seriously accepted on his part, would be virtually to leap from the Tarpeian Rock and leave a name In history to be rememberea with the names or Burr and Arnold." The metaphor Is a little mixed, perhaps, but the language is certainly strong and emphatic enough. Every important act of the President's since his second inaugural seems to indicate that be is preparing for a third termthat Csesarlsm is to be the issue; Caesar Ism, with all its tyranny and corruption, its vlciousneas and depravity, without tbe prosperity, the glory and the grandeur which made Its despotism endurable. To this complexion must it come at last unless the people remain trne to themselves and true to the lalth or their fathers, the founders of the Republic. Bat, while the Hbkald has discovered the feet, it Is not the first to discover the truth. Sagacious statesmen foresaw and depleted the evil more than a year ago. Charles Summer, whose republicanism is as undoubted as his talents, told Congress and the country of Caesartsm irom his seat in the Senate more than a twelvemonth since. Horace Greeley, the great journalist, the man able, honest and sincere, whose untiring exertions, whose perseverance, unflagging Industry and Indomitable will made him the founder of the republican party and contributed in no small measure to Its subsequent victories and long continued success, saw the danger anU sounded a warning in tho columns ol the Tribune. Other republicans saw it and sought to save the party from the suicidal nomination at Philadelphia. When they became convinced that lurther exertions within party lines would be useless, they renounced their allegiance. They determined to act for themselves, and the Cincinnati platform and the nomination of Horace Greeley was the first formal protest against the one-man power. The democracy, losing sight Of lesser evils In the presence of great and immediate danger, coalesced with the reformers and fongnt with them, shoulder to shoulder, the battle of >72. But the strategy of the enemy caused the true grounds of quarrel to be ignored and forgotten. The conflict was waged upon false Issues, and the Cincinnati movement encountered a crushing defeat. Now the campaign must be recommenced, and though the last tight was lost and the enemy has the prestige of success, the prospects for victory will be better than they ever were before. Cssarlsm, which formerly lay in ambush, now rears high its brazen front, and there is no mistaking the ch&raoter of the loe. Unless the masses have become accustomed to mlbgovernment?unless the democracy have lost their ancient courage and forsaken their ancient faith?victory most come to ua In '76. [From the Springfield (Mass.) Journal (republican and anti-administration), July 1Q.J THE THIRD ThBM, AMD WHY NOT? It is an Interesting and suggestive?though, perhaps, not necessarily alarming?symptom of the abnormal pathological condition in which the body politic now finds Itself, that. In the first half year of an American President's second term, so many politicians and political journals should be lound discussing the chances of his securing a third. Thus, a Washington correspondent Informs the Boston Post that a conference of offlce-holders was held last week at Long Branch to "arrange the preliminaries," and that it is "not, denied" the President knew ot It. Further, that the prime movers count, first, upon the patronage; second, upon the influence of the moneyed interests?the railroads, national banks, protected manufactures and great capitalists, that supported General Grant so effectively last year; third, upon the inability of any other one candidate to rally around him a majority of the party; fourth, upon the inability of the opposition to concentrate and act In unison. The mention of the moneyed Interests here rccalls the somewhat famous argument of the Boston JwimcU and other republican organs last year, that any change of adminlstratlon would be necessarily Injurious. If not calamitous, to capital and business, since it would substitute uncertainty for certainty. Wo said at the time that this argument, If solid, would hold, as true in 1ST* as in 1872 and in 18to as in 1878; that It was, logically and practically, an argument for the empire. We say so now. Thus, too, the Nkw York Hhbald has treated Its readers this week to several editorial articles, in the genuine aiavmlst vein, on the advent of "Cassarlsm" In this free and hannv rnnntrr Th? tona ?rwl < ?#? them can be sufficiently Indicated by a brief extract"Nothing is clearer than that the hencnmen of General Grant, the men who Have rained honor and wealth out of his administration, and who seo In his rcnouilnation and re-election their own continuance in power, mean to InnlBt upon hla renorainatlou. The arguments are all at handWe are doing so well; the business of tne country needs so much traaqullllty; the South la ao restless In the absence of a Arm hand; General Grant has been so admirable, and so on, that we cannot run the risk or new experiments." We migtit continue these citations, but It Is unnecessary. Here and there a reformed civil service organ scarcely takes the pain to conceal Its expectation and hope. Even such a newapaprr ao' the New York 7Yrn?? contents itself with sneering at the alarm of "the democracy" over the prospect of General Grant's renominatlon. Here and there, too, a Northern politician Intimates, with more or less reserve, tfmt. In a conceivable contingency, General Grunt may be the best man. Colonel Mosby has spoken out Ills mind with the frankness befitting a partisan fighter; and there la no doubt that he speaks tor the entlro daaa of Southern Dajgettys who have aeen the OS. HERALD, MONDAY, JT error or their ways and been converted to loyalty a it Is in General Grant. If, by any accident, the President should ran again be wonld probably ran better at the South than In any other section of the country. The predictions of the Courier-Journal on that head are coming trne with a rapidity that is rather startling. We are not disposed, as onr readers very veil know, to exaggerate the Importance of this thirdterm talk; much of It is doubtless Idle and meaningless. Neither politicians nor newspapers are to be held to a rigid accountability lor every foolish word they may chance to let tall at a time when the Dog Star rages, and Oongrevs Is not in session and "sensations" are at a premium. Making all fair allowances, however, we have still a residium of earnestness, calculation, serious purpose. There are alawmen and Journals that regard General Grant1* re-election in 1379 as both feasible and desirable. There are a great many men and Journals that could be pretty certainly relied upon, in the event of hia getting tne "regular nomination,'* to support mm. They would not Hod in the fact of his having already served two terms any solid objection to presenting htm with a third. That la to say, the Washington precedent has lost, for the moment at least, much of Its sanotlty* The war Is largely responsible (or this, as for a number of other things?good and bad. There' may be a reaction by and by and a return to the old paths; we hope and believe there will be. But at present there la not among ua that vigilant Jealoasy of rulers, that exaggerated but wholesame dread of personal government, that watchiul care that the democratic republic sustains no injury at the nands of powerful publio servants, that used to characterize the American people. In the storm more than one oable has parted, more than one anchor has been lost. The ship has drifted a long way from her old moorings, and there la a lee shore In sight. We do not look to see her go to wreck upon this shore, however We still retain an abiding and reasaurlng faith In the Repubilo. We believe her to be in greater danger at this moment irom the dry rot of corruption than from "Caesarlsm." We see no reason to bndge from tbe opinion heretofore expressed In these colnmns, that General Grant cannot get a renomlnatlon even If he is after It, of which there la aa yet no satisfactory proof. Moreover, we do not believe the people are ready as yet for either tbe llfe-consolate or the empire. It la quite possible the spectacle of a President openly seeking a third term might give precisely that shock to the national system which la needed to dispel the lethargy that now oppresses it, set the blood tingling through the veins and restore the suspended functions to a normal activity. (Prom the Providence Journal (administrationSenator Anthony's organ), July 10.] The New York Herald has discovered that there is nothing In the constitution of the United States which prevents a person irom being elected three times to the office ol President. It has discovered that President Grant was some few years since admitted to be something of a soldier, and it knows that he has been for a second time chosen Chiet Executive of the nation. This is familiar learning, as tbe lawyers say, to everybody; and the same thing has transpired before in our history. But?not even in the old coffln-handblll days of General Jackson?did It seem so certain that a despotic Ctesarism waa to take possession of oar country as it seems to-day possible, if not probable, to tbe Hbrald. "General Grant is a brave and sincere American," it cries; "be has said and done nothing in tbe matter to Justify any criticism ou oar part." But the 'contingency involving the liberties of the ooantry is" that the people have the constitutional right to elect him President once more. There is no doubt about tbe fact. As to its evil as a matter of political calculation there is, in the opinion of the Herald, a direiul and portentous apathy on the part ol the people. It thinks that they are driving blindly on to a third election of Grant simply because this is a "contented, prosperous and happy country," with, oat a thought that by so doing they would plunge fhamflolvAB and th? naflrtn a rmlf Hoon/?Hom wherein, trodden down by "the man on horseback," would be slain oar liberties and annihilated ' all our town meetings, and Iree suffrage, and public schools, and three months' vacation for the ministers, and everything pertaining to, and every, body in favor of, republican liberty. It Is a good while to the next Presidential election, aud why the Hkrald should have sprung this question upon ns just now when it Is dry, and warm and gardening is discouraging, and we are sadly in want of a jovial day at the shore, we cannot understand. [From the Lynchburg Virginian (democratic) July 10.] * * The Washington Chronicle, an administration organ, says :? This expression of opinion coining from the Hkkai.d alone would be without significance, for it would surprise no one to see it contradicted in a leader in a day or two. but taken in connection with expressions iron other democratic papers scattered all over the country makes it clear that the leaders of tiiat party anticipate General Grant's renomlnation by the next Republican National Convention. It will be observed that the CTtnmUSle does not disavow, either for the party or Its chief, such a purpose as that attributed to both by "democratic papers scattered all over the country," bat leaves upon the pablic mind the unpleasant Impression that General Grant Is willing to disregard that usage which has made the law governing this subject, and that his party will use him as long as be is tbe most available candidate. The omission Is significant, and the Inferences that "democratic papers" have dodaced from tbe well known character of the man and his party?both of which are utterly regardless of all precedents??re just. If, therefore. Grant should seem to be, three years hence, the strongest man In tbe party, he will again be nominated (or tbe high offlce he now holds, but does not fill. We may rest assured that he and his officeholders will try to make that appear as a fact, and the prediction of Frank Blair is likely to be fulfilled. [From the New York Express (democratic), July 10.] The Hkrald devotes another leader to the rapid strides wo are making towards a consolidated despotism under the "Csps&rlsm" of General Grant, and until these strides are reversed, the editor is certain, the liberties or the people are in danger. | [The Hkrald is right, bat it Is only opening Its eyes now to perils wnich were clearly foreseen by | others when the republican party made Grant sob stantlally military dictator.] As a first step to getting on the path of safety, the Ubbald calls npon I President Arant to give public assurance that he j will not be a candidate for a third term. The writer knows little ol Crant or of such men as Grant, If he expects him to do anything like that. He and his party have "shipped for the voyage," and the voyage, no matter how perilous it mar be to popular liberty, must go on, on, on?till the end. [Krom the Baltimore Gazette (democratic). July 9.] * * * Besides the qualities we have ventured, in no uukindncss, to attribute to our New York contemporary, there Is the additional one manifested regularly an each political crisis presents itsell?ol a sort of instinct as to success. Rarely has the Hkrald failed to bet on the winning horse, aid in order to do so has had no scruple, in true gaming fashion, to sacrifice all personal consideration* and j give np everything for success. When, therefore, j besides the sadden solemnity, we And the more un- i expected manilestation of a dl.-position for once, for the sake of a great principle, to run the risk or defeat, it bccomes more Imprcssiv*. Now for our facts, to which considerate readers will, we are sure, thank us for calling their attention. At the end, during last week, of a very well considered article on the political state of the country, the Hkrald uses thin remarkable laaguaga, which strikingly illustrates what, tn the way or criticism, we have suggested, and which we cannot abridge:?* * * [Quotation from the Hkrai.d.] Who is there that will deny that thla is unaffectedly ' earnest in tone and strictly true In fact and logic f one danger even tbe*hbrald does not seem will Injt to contemplate?me linniinem danger tnai me i name mastery which enables Qrant to command a second reuomlnatlon would almost certainly secure his re-election. The election and the defeat are stated alternatively. Onr Judgment, and we apeak It sadly, I* that with the financial and other evlj influences which the President and his myrmidons Know so well how to ufe the I chances would be largely in bis favor. JBot, JLY 14, 1873.?WITH SUP one thing can avert It, and this la, that apathy should cease, and that snob blasts or warning as we bare cited, and wblcb we trust will be repeated, shall arouse the sleeping people. Tbe republican party, in tbe way of the development of anything like opposition to a third term candidate. Is thoroughly narcotized. Its bravest leaders are in discredit and almost exiled. How helpless It really is inaj De tmerrea rroin the Incontestable fact that the only possible candidate within Its reach who Is talked of is the migratory adventurer who oresides over the House of Uepresentatlves; and his pretensions are just nothing. Of liberalism we hardly know how to speak. Like many other overstrained, immature growths, Its vigor was Impaired by precocity. We surrendered everything to It lost Autumn. and in doing so overtaxed more energies than one. hothing, then, remains bat the democracy o( the land, and In view of the new danger whi.'h, as we have seen, appalls those who are not easily alarmed, we call on it to arouse and organise. (From the Washington Star (administration), July o.] The Hkralp sees a growth of Cesarum in our politics that compels an Issue with the people "which has not hud its parallel In gravity since the foundation of the government." The Hkkald does not associate General Grant with lis comments upon the danger of Cmsaiism, but says that bo la surrounded by men like Mark Antony and Talleyrand, who speak to him as they spoke to Caesar and Napoleon. Let ns hope that the danger (torn Caesarism, snuffed afar off by the Hbrald. will not prove a reality. We Imagine our practical, common sense American people will make short work of the Caesar business should it ever show Itself In a shape for them to get a liok at It. As for General Grant, he tranquilly smokes his cigar and perhaps takes an occasional stomach-warmer to ward off the paralysis that seizes the unco-tem pcrauuo ivus ime nourj nuwu, uuuax, ureeiey and the rest; but we may be Bare that be has ne more Idea of being a Caesar than be baa of flying. Andrew Johnson wm a good deal more In the Cffisar line, and his inglorious fizzle server to show Just what amount of success that kind of lam Is likely to get In this oonntry, [Prom tbe Troy Whig (administration), July 10.] The New Yore Hkrald baa been lor a long time anxious about tbe political prospect for the next Presidential campaign. It fears, or pretends to fear, that General Grant will be a candidate for a third term. Our constitution permits a' reelection for as many terms as tbe people are willing. man may be re-elected and bold tne office of President until death shall close his term. But there Is an unwritten law, which is higher than the constitution. It is the example set by Ocorge Washington and followed by every President and accepted by the people. The party that shall undertake to run a candidate for a third term will be beaten and the candidate will be disgraced. We do not think General Grant la required to say a word on tbe subject. He will go out of office at the end of his second term as quietly as any of his predecessors. He has never manifested any disposition to grasp or exercise power. He had keen contcnt simply to do bis duty. Tbe question ought not to be discussed as If a third nomination were possible. So lar the discussion has been confined to the Hkrald. We have seen no response, and perhaps none la necessary. But we will venture to remark that the politician who shall dare to propose a third term may as well retire at onoe to private life. [From the BnffiUo Courier (dem.) July 11.] The Nbw York Hkrald baa lately published several articles of more than usual merit and forethought on the present tendencies of public eventa in this country, and, dismissing all the side Issues anch aa those of protection and free trade, suffrage to one class or the other, and even that yet greater question of centralization or State rights, says the rest wiuugut iu vuo miuiu 01 uiubi> ui our pouuclans Is, "Shall we bave a republican form of government? Shall we nominate General Grant foi a third term?" * * It Is justly said that hla tory repeats Itself, but It is always with variation! which partly obscnre Its teachings from our sight The change from simple republicanism to Cssar Ism in this country will not be marked by i coup (PitrU, such aa that of Louis Nu pole on bnt many of the social and political elementi around as are favorable to It. There Is an absent of those axed sentiments on many subjects whict pervaded the community when the revolution was accomplished; the conn try has become accustomed to the spectacle of military snbordluatlon and rule, and many of oar young men have formed their opinion* daring its existence; enormous wealth and luxury have not only been obtained, but this has been done with a suddenness never before known. The prevalence of a widespread laxity in moral and political principles, especially among oar public men, la too plainly proved by the Credit Mobllier and other extraordinary legislation In Congress and big railroad and other iniquities in state legislation at Albany and elsewhere; property u becoming concentrated in fewer hands, and the opportunities of readily acquiring laud and a farm at a nominal price are almost totally lost m the older States, and social distinctions, scaroely known In the earlier days ol the Republic, are becoming the rale Instead of the exception, while honest labor Is leas respected. These things and others connected with them go far to make up the body of a different government and aid those who, tor the Bake of retaining their honors and emoluments, are desirous that Grant should be re-elected for a third terai and as much longer aa they can carry elections. [Prom the Rochester Democrat (administration), July 12.] We think the people will hesitate lonir about offering any man?even one who has earned so much cotmlderfttlnn *t thai* hoB.i? .--..i Grant?a third term, and be will be even more gcrupuloua to accept than they to proffer. U Is well that no law has yet been established on this matter. The austere example of Washington Is something that it Is more diffloult to disregard than even a constitutional provision. The people make constitutions, and might do away with them at will, bat the severe majesty of that character, its cold, snowy parity of patriotism, cannot be forgotten nor obliterated. We have little or uo mistrust of the intention of the people of this country to govern themselves, or of their ability to do It, and yet we think nothing but some dangerous crisis should lnduee the nation to choose even lt? greatest man Chief Magistrate for a third term, huch an event will be followed by the election of some less worthy candidate a fourth time, and, worst of we shall have neither positive statute nor moral reprobation to prevent a man's becoming what Macaulay calls "perpetual President." After one has been elected half a dozen times both be and the people may begin to think a repetition of the formality of voting for him useless. All such speculatlocs must look far tn;o the dim inture for their realization; lor a plainer, less ambitions President never held the offlce then he who now occupies it. There is not about his character a single mark of the grasping usurper, tie Dears Dlnueir simply as a man who ban worthily performed a groat work for tbe nation and is willing to rest on tbe laurels be has won. He has tasted the bitterness or early obscurity and the sweetness 01 late renown. He is evidently one or those men who are satisfied with saving tnelr country and would rather rest after the task than begin a new struggle to take away its liberties. [From tbe Padueah Kentnckiao (democratic), July 10.] The qnestlon arises, Can Grant be elected for a third term T We have heard radicals Bcout the Idea or his even being a candidate, and say that if he was nominated he could not possibly be elected. We do not place implicit faith in such views. The power that proposes to ran Grant lor a third term is very great. There are, first, all the offlce-bolders, and their name is lertoa, scattered all over the country. Second, tbe national banks and railroad corporations. It la a recognized tact that in some way these banks and corporations have had power to control Congress and tha President for years past. Oakea Ames knew bow to do this thing; that was by placing tha stock or the Institutions where It wonld do tha most good. Thirdly, there are the capitalist*, it la this etaaa who bold tbe FLEMENT. bonds of the. United States, and who, hiring secured them during tne war for one-half their value, can well afford to pay oat liberally to keep the investment safe. Against this Immense power, lull? organized and ready for action, Is the great body of the people. This sounds well, but the people are not organized; they have no paid leaders, and are liable to be led astray by tho Influences which tha strong coalition above referred to can bring to bear npon them. The peopio were mistaken as to their true interests in the last Presidential election, and why may they not be mistaken again? There Is but one chance to deteat the re-election of Grant In 1876. The people under some name or organization must unite and form a strong, powerful party that will stand as a nnlt against official corruption, tniqnltious monopolies and money combinations. The demooratlo party offers the nucleus for Buch an organization. [Prom the Johnstown (Pa.) Mountain Voice, July 11.) * * * IP report be trne the moneyed men, the politicians, the corporations, the immense monopolies have lately ordained this third nomination at Long Branch. Their flat is the law of this land. The people mnst accept It nolens voUma. In dlacu*Blng this contingency some of the journals raise tho cry of Immediate Cesarlsm. We anticipate nothing of the kind. Hundreds of thousands of young men, with muscles of Iron and hearts of Are for thef country, would in this generation fly to arms in defence of the Republlo the moment the signal for the Inauguration of Imperialism were given. And If these In tba open field should not be enough there would be a chosen few to dye the Imperial robes in proper colors and with tae proper dye, the heart's blood of the usnrper, be he entitled king, emperor or president. Bat General Grant would never attempt to overthrow the Republic. He has not the army, and the moment an attempt is made to create one the people will become alarmed. The chief danger, in thus departing from the usages of our forefathers, would be tbe effect upon the people in aocustomlug them to rulers for long periods. Bo soon as our people reconcile themselves to a third-term President they have taken a long stride towards reconciling themselves to a fourth-term President. What Is Inculcated habit In this generation becomes natural to the next. They see very little wrong In a fllth-term President, a sixth, Ac., whlob Is the natural life of a ruler of tbe requisite aire. Bat long ere coming to this such easy though grand departures from usage would work just as easily though great departures from the constitution, and if Buch a ruler were not by that time king or emperor In name he would be In fact. THE HERALD iSD THE RELIfllOVS PRESS. [From tbe Raleigh (N. 0.) Biblical Recorder, July a.) It must be confessed that the New Yore Hkrald Is the best newspaper In the world, the leading journals of Europe not excepted. It has more widespread Influences at work, gathering news Irom all parts of the world; it spends more money and exhibits more energy and enterprise In this direction than any paper within our knowledge. The proof of this remark is seen in every Monday's Issue of the Hbrald. One whole page and olten much more is devoted to a synopsis of the sermons delivered in New York, Brooklyn, Boston, Philadelphia, Baltimore and Washington. For so many pulpits to be represented, and at such remote distances, of course, must require a large reportory corps, and the expenses Involved in telegraphic despatches must be very great indeed. In addition to the reports of sermons, there is always at least a column of editorial which proposes to give a bird's-eye view of the topics discussed and the manner in which they were treated by different ministers the day berore. It Is true these editorials are not always remarkable for their pious and reverential spirit. The issue of Monday last begins Its article on "Yesterday's Sermons" thus The sermons which we publish to-day are very l much like the country physician's bread pillsthere Is no more chance that they will kill than that they will cure. They have very Utile Christ in them, but then they have very little deviL i Some idea of the expense Incurred in this mat ter of publishing so much about religion rnaj be i seen from the fact that the man who writes these > editorials Is paid, we have been told, *10,000 a year. i The point we wlan to make Is that the journalism i of the country, so far from tabooing religious inI formation in Its columns, covets it, and will gladly publish any well written article relating to religion or religious institutions of learning, and It la the duty of our people to nse as frequently and as readily as they can this tremendous agency for the promotion of the Interest they love as they do their own lives. THE HERALD AID ITS SEW ENTERPRISE. [From the Lehighton (Pa.) News, Jnly 12.] The new enterprise of the Nkw York 11 Kit a ld In having special trains run from New York to Boston, Philadelphia and Baltimore Is fully worthy of the greatness of that paper. This, taken with all Its other enterprises, makes It the greatest newspaper In the world. POLITICAL NOTES AND OBSERVATIONS. The nsnally dignified Boston Advertiser compares General Butler to a "washerwoman for soiled llnea." Perhaps the General does not think it worth his while muezlin' that paper. William McClelland, of Plttsbnrg, Is suggested in the Harrlsbnrg Patriot as a fit person for chairman of the next Pennsylvania Democratic State Central Committee. The St.Lonis Democrat put* this rather pertinent question*'What has become of the $6,000 of 'back pay* given by Senator Pomeroy to Mr. York on that memorable night, In Topeka?" If not "covered" into the Treasury It is not Improbable that It has been "coppered" In some of the lashton able salons in Washington. "Stephen A. Douglas," says the St. Louis Democrat, "used to take his $8 a day, and be satisfied; but John A. Logan thinks he Is underpaid at $T,M)0 lor six months' service?or about $40 a day." The Democrat snould remember that times are slightly altered since the days of Douglas. Then corn was the basis of values. Now paper Is. Ed. C. Marshall, of Woodford county, is urged as I the democratic candidate tor the Senate of Ken- I tucky from the district composed of Fayette, Jet- | gamine and Woodford counties. Is this the same j old eloquent "Ned" Marshall of many a political campaign ? The Cincinnati Enquirer has suggested that If the farmers of Ohio want a candidate for Governor, Judge William B. Caldwell, of Cincinnati, is the man. Mauy are called, but few are chosen. The same paper says that the suggestion of Dodds as a farmers' candidate does not acem to take. Poor Doddsi It is proposed that the 30th Jnly Convention (liberal republican) in Ohfc) be postponed until the I 8th of August, the day of the Democratic Convenl tlon. The Cincinnati Enquirer ravors the Idea. I "Why not Pendleton for Governor f" asks some I of the correspondents of the Wayne county (Ohio) Democrat. Because, answers that paper, Peauleton don't want to be a candidate. Congressman Robinson, of Ohio, defends the backpay steal. "Robbln' some" must be a familiar sonnd to bin ears. The Milwaukee ,V?/w (democrat) believes there will be no repeal of the back-par act at the next session of Oongress for the following cogent re a- | sons:?First, President Grant's salary cannot he reduced to the old figure; second, the back paj is in the pockets of the grabbers and cannot be recovered; third, members of the next Congress are drawing monthly their increased pay, and will have enjoyed and spent it when Congress meets and the repeal proposition will be made. me Boston Transcript asserts that a new statuette of Ueneral Butler la in preparation, the two sidea of the face being qotte dissimilar. One aide amusingly represents "Prohibition," the other "Anti-Prohlbltlon." The vlrtnons editor of the Worcester himself a member of Congress for six years?says:?"This talk of the cost of living at Washington, aaed as an argument for extravagant pay, la an empty prei 3 tense. considering that Congressmen do not Ilv? there bail the time, while the officials we hav? named, with much smaller salaries, live there coo. stantly, and And do trouble in paying ail ihelr expenses." People can lire extravagantly in other places than Washington. "The American cholera," says the Memphis Avalanche, "made a pass at ex-President Johnson, bat he soon fanded it, and will be able to make a few remarks In a conversational way daring next year's canvass." The Virginia (iter.) mterprue says explanations from Congressmen Stewart and Kendall In regard to the back-pay bounty process are now in order. They may not think It worth while to take the hint. The "universal demand for the repeal of the act," says tho BL 1'uul Pioneer, "is deleated by the money being handed over before any service in rendered. It is a shrewd trick to pocket the funds before the rising trumpet of public Indignation forces tho law to be abrogated. The people oan now see for themselves what manner of men they have set np for rulers." Bays the Portland (Me.) AdverUaer?The query, "What becomes of Ibe back pay of members of Oott> greas whlcb Is left in the Treasury ?" has been answered by secretary Richardson In these words, "It remains a perpetual debt against the government unless the law Is repealed." "Reckless financiers, dishonest btuilnega men, political adventurers, the purse-proud and vain shoddylsts," shouts the Lawrence (Kansas) standard, "throw up their caps and shout In praise of Grant. The masses of the people look on in sorrow. Grant was their hero?be came to thera fresh from victorious battle fields?but he has failed to hold their esteem or preserve their regard. Enthusiasm has given plaoe to doubt, and the President to-day has lost the esteem of the good men of the country. The Salary hill Is ffctal ta Its supporters." "The farmers* movement, aa It is called," asserts the Chicago Advarwe (religious paper), "is not the offspring of demagogism; it is the result of a conviction that has been steadily growing, and baa at ength become general, that tbe enormous power of railway and other monopolies Is, in more waya than one, seriously threatening tbe pubUo welfare." "There Is nothing," declares tbe Louisville Ledger (democratic), "that can so certainly assure a continuation of radical rale as a timid, timenerving, namby-pamby course upou the part ol democrats? seek Inn new affiliations, running od after uew parties, inaugurating Bchemes of, and men for expediency, at the sacrifice of tbe dootrinal truths of the party." Cold comfort, this, for the coalitionists. They now begin to talk or Lew Campbell as the farmers' candidate for Governor of Ohio. Rush R. Hloan declines being the democratic and liberal candidate lor Lieutenant Governor of Ohio. He will, however, stump through tlie campaign with a rush. The following is a list of New York Congressmen who have returned ttielr back paySenator Reuben K.Kenton, liberal; Representatives Samuel S. Cox, democrat; William A. Wheeler, republican; Walter L.
