the THIRn tlcliu, and wbv not?
It Is an interesting aud suggestive?though, pet
hap*, uot necessarily alarming?symptom of th
abnormal pathological condition In which the IkxI
politic now linds ltstlf, that, in the first half yea
of an American President's second term, so man;
politicians and political journals should be fount
discussing tbe chances ol his securing a third.
Thus, a Washington correspondent iniorms thi
Boston I'ost that a conierence of office-holders wa
held last week at Long Branch to "arrange tin
preliminaries,-' and that it is "not denied" tin
President knew of It. Further, that the prim
movers count, first, upon the patronage; second
upon the influence of the moneyed interests?th
railroads, natloual banks, protected manufacture
aud ureal capitalists, that supported Genera
Grant so effectively last year; third, upoi
the Inability ol any other one candidate t
rally around him a majority of the party; lourtli
upon the inubility of the opposition to conrentra?
and act lu unison. Tue mention of the moneye
interests here recalls the somewhat famous argi
ment of the Boston Journal and other republlca
organs lust year, that any change of adiuiniHtrt
tion would be necessarily injurious, If not calani
tous, to capital and business, since It would sul
stltute uncertainty lor certainty. Wo said al tli
time that tins argument, ii soli?l, would hold a
true In 1H70 hs in 1872 and In 18-JO as In 1870; that I
was, logically au I practically, an argument for tli
empire. We say no now.
Thus, too, the New York IIkkai.d lias treated it
readers thii week to several editorial art.cies, 1
the genuine aiarmist vein, on the ad
vent ot "CitsariHui" in this free an
happy country. The tone and drllt t
them can lie sunicicntly Indicated by
bri'*f extract t?'-Xotliiug la c oarer thai
that the honenmen or General Grant, the men wli
| have trained honor and wealth out oi his aduiinii
tratlou, and who see in li s rcnomlnatlon am

| General Grant has been so admirable, and so or

It will be observed that, the Chronicle does not
' disavow, either for the party or its chief, such a
H purpose as that attributed to both by "democratic

but leaves upon the public mind the
D unpleasant Impression that General Grant
Is willing to disregard that usage which has made
8 the law governing this subject, and that his party
will use lilin as long as he Is the most available candin

that "democratic papers" havo deduced

The NRw York Hkbai.d lias been lor a long time
anxious about the 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 tho people are
willing. A man may be re-elected and hold
tne ofllce of President until death shall close his
term. But there Is an unwritten law, which is
higher than tho constitution. It is the example
set by George Washington and followed by every
President and accepted by the people. The party
that shall undertake to run a oandldate for a third
term will be beaten and the candidate will be disgraced.
Wo do not think General Grant is required
to say a word on the subject. Ho will go out or
office at the end of his second term as quietly as
any of his predeoossors. He has never manifested
any disposition to grasp or exercise power. Ho
has been content simply to do his duty. The
question ought not to be discussod as if a third
nomination were possiblo. So rar the discussion
has been confined to the Herald. We have Been
no response, and perhaps none Is necessary. But
we will venturo to remark that tho politician who
shall dare to propose a third term may as well retire
at onoe to private life.
[Prom tho Buffalo Courier (dem.) July IX.]
Tho N*w York Herald has lately published several
articles or more than usual merit and forethought
on the present tondencies of public ovents
lu this conntry, and, dismissing all the side issues
such as those of protection and free trade, suffrage
to ono emeu or tne otner, ana even mat yet greater
question 01 centralization or State rights, says the
real thought In Ute minds or most of our politicians
is, "Shall wo have a republican form of government1
Shall wo nominate General Grant for
a third term*" * * * It is juBtly said that history
repeats itself, but It is always with variations
wbicli partly obscure its teachings from our sight.
Tno change from simple republicanism to Cxaarlsm
in this country will not be marked by a
coup d'etat, such as that of Louis Napoleon,
but many of the social and political elements
around us are favorable to it. There is an absenco
of those fixed sentiments on many subjects which
pervaded the community when the revolution was
accomplished; the country has become accustomed
to the spectaclo or military subordination aud rulo,
and mauy of our young men have formed their
opinions during 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
our public men, Is too plainly proved by the
Credit Mobllicr and other extraordinary legislation
in Congress and big railroad and other
iniquities in state legislation at Albany and elsewhere;
property is becoming concantrated In
fewer hands, and the opportunities of readily acquiring
land and a farm at a nominal pnee are
almost totally lost in the older States, and social
distinctions scarcely known in the oarlier days of
the Republic, arc becoming the rule Instead of the
exception, while honest labor Is less respected.
These things and others connected with them go
far to make up tho body of adifforent government
and aid those who, for the sako of retaining their
honors and emoluments, are desirous that Graut
should be re-elected lor a third term and as much
longer as llicy can carry elections.
[From the Rochester Democrat (admluistration),
July 12.]
Wo think the people will hesitate lonsr about
offering any man?even one who has earned so
much consideration at their hands as Geuerai
Grant?a third term, and ho will be even more
scrupulous to accept than they to proffer. It la
well that no law has yet been established on this
mattor. The austere example of Washington Is
something that it Is more difficult to disregard
than even a constitutional provision. The people
make constitutions, and might do away with them
at will, but the severe majesty of that character,
its cold, snowy purity of patriotism, cannot be forgotten
nor obliterated. We have little or uo mistrust
of tho intention of tho rcopleofthls country to
govern themselves, or of their ability to do It, and
yet we think nothing but some dangerous crisis
should induce the nation to choose even its greatest
man Chief Magistrate for a third term. Such
an eveut will be followed by tho election of some
' less worthy candidate a fourth time, and, worst of
all. we shall have neitbor positive statute nor
I moral reprobation to prevent a man's becoming
what Macuulay calls "perpetual President." After
one has been clectcd hair a dozen times both he and
the people may begin to think a repetition of the
formality ol voting tor him useless. All such speculations
must look far in o the dim future for
their realization; ior a plainer, less ambitious
President never held tho office than lie who
now occupies it. Thoro Is not ^bout his

The (jncnilon arises, Can Grant be elected lor a
third tcrmr Wo have heard radicals scout the
idea of his oven being a candidate, and say tliat if
ho was nominated lie could not possibly be elected.
Wo do not placo implicit faith in such views. The
power that proposes to run Grant lor a third term
Is vory great. There are, first, all tho ofllcc-holders,
and their name Is legion, scattered all over the
country. Second, the national banks and railroad
corporations. It Is a recognized fact that in some
way tlieso banks and corporations have had power
to control Congross and tho President for years
past. Oakcs Amos know how to do this thing;
that was by placing tho stock of the Institutions
where It would do tho most good. Thirdly, there
are the capitalists. It la tliU clasu wlio hold the
bonds of tbe United states, and who, Having secured
tbem daring tue war for one-half tbelr value,
can well afford to pay oat liberally to
keep tbo Investment safe. Against this
immense power, fully organized and ready
for action, Is the great body of the people.
Tliis sounds well, but tbe people are
uot organized; they hare no paid leaders, and are
liable to bo led astray by the influencea which the
strong coalition above reierrea to can bring to
bear upon them. Tho people were mistaken as to
their true interests in the last Presidential election,
and why may thoy not be mistaken again? There
la but ono chance to deieat the re-eloctlon of Grant
In 1870. The people under somo name or organization
must unite and form a strong, powerrul party
that will stand as a unit against official corruption,
luiiiultlous monopolies and money combinations.

open field should not be enough there would be a
chosen few to dye the imporial robes in proper
colors and with tne proper dye, the heart's blood of
the usurper, bo he entitled kiug, emperor or
president. But General Grant would never attempt
to overthrow the Republlo. no has not the
army, and the moment an attempt Is made to
create one tho people will become alarmed. The
chief danger, in thus departing from the usages of
our forefathers, would be the effect upon the people
In accustoming them to rulors for long periods.
So soon as our poople reconcile themselves to a

* It must be confessed that the Nbw Tons
Herald 1b the best newspaper In the world, the
leading Journals of Europe not exceptod. It has
njoro widespread lnfluencos at work, gathering
news from all parts of the world; It spends more
money and exhibits more energy and enterprise In
thin direction than any paper within our
knowledge. The proof of this remark is seen in
every Monday's issue of tho Herald. One whole
page and olten much moro is devoted to a synopsis
of the sermous delivered in New York,
Brooklyn, Boston, Philadelphia, Baltimore and
Washington. For so many pnlpits to bo represented,
and at such remoto distances, of
course, must require a largo repertory corps, and
the expenses involved in telegraphic despatches
must be very great lndood. In addition to tho 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 botore. It Is true these editorials are not
always remarkable for tholr pious and reverential
spirit. Tne issue of Monday last begins its article
on "Yesterday's Sermons" thus
The sermons which we publish to-day are very
much like the country physician's bread pillsthere
Is no more chance that they will kill than
that they will euro. They bavo very little Christ in
them, but then they have very little devil
Some idea of tho expense incurred in this matter
of publishing so much about religion may bo
seen from the fact that the man who writes these
editorials is paid, we have been told, $l(\ooo a year.
The point we wish to make Is that the Journalism
of the country, so far from tabooing religious information
tn its columns, covets it, and will gladly
publish any well written article relating to religion
or religious Institutions of learning, and it is
the duty of our peoplo to use as frequently and as
readily as ihey can this tremendous agency for tho
promotion of the interest they love as they do
their own lives.
