F2IH3BURQ, PA.. Tiicrcdat, : : : llkMu 25, ISCt. Radical Sarvlllty. Whenever a man ia Invested with official power, whether he be King or President, he is at once surrounded by a crow J of eyco pbanta and flatterers, who are ever ready to crook the pregnant hinge of the knee that thrift may follow fawning." With honeyed words they buzz arouud him like bets around the flowers of the fiId. Their abject flattery is as short lived as it is hypocritical, and disappears with the retirement of its object from power and place. Unlike the sunflower, "They do not tarn to te sua as he sets The same look that they gave when he rose." Shakeopeare, who understood human nature better than any other writer in the world, admirably portrays this obsequeouB brood of man-worshippers in the brief dia logue which takes place between Hamlet, the young PriDce of Deninark.'and the cring ing courtier, Pulonius : Ilmu let Do you see yonder cloud that's al mokt in shape of a caaiel ? Polonius Dy the mass, and 'tis like a canel, indeed. Hamlet Mcthinks it U like a weasel. Polonius It is backed like a weasel. Htmlet Or like a whale? Poluuius Very like a whale. Almost every editor of a radical newspa per, from Horace Greely down, has become a veritable Polooius to General Grant. Every thing that he says and every sentence that he does are bailed by hid satellites as the productions of a man almost inspired. The deep and varied learning of Goldsmith's village schoolmastsi did not excite more profound wonder and astonishment among Lis rustic scholars than does the wonderful ixLibition of Grant's genius and statesman ship among his slavish admirers. AuJ still they gazed, and aiill the wonder grew, That one small head could carry all he know.'' When General Grant's Inaugural Address was, published, although it was a very com mon place affair, and could just as readily hnve been written by any other ordinary man. the radical press throughout the coun try bailed it with a perfect shout of 'ap plause. No follower of Mahomet ever re ceived a fresh instalment of the Koran with more unwavering belief in the truth of its revelations no disciple of Joe Smith everj placed more implicit faith in the divine ori gin of a new chapter ia the Bock of Mormon than did radical newspaper editors mauifest in the perfect and complete political wisdom of that document. With them it was a political gem of the first water. It was just what the country needed just what it ex pected, and just what no other man save and txcept Geo. Grant could have written. It w so sruter.tious and yet bo comprehen sive so broad and grasping in its statesman like views so plain and direct in its posi tions so much like Grant, that no other nan than himself could possibly have writ ten it; in a word, so rxaterly and appropri a'e that nothing but its own dear self could V? its parallel. The same fulsome adulation greeted the announcement of Lis Cabinet, with radical Congressman Donnelly's "bel lowing demagogue," E. IT. Washburne, as i'a diplomatic figure head, and fc. R. Hoar f t its judicial tail. Although it was as un expected to his friends as it was to his foes, and in the sequel astonished even Gen. Grant himself, yet these blind followers of the i-ilen prophet saw or protended t) see in it evidence of consummate political tact and unequalled discrimination of character. Had not Washburne, they said, been the f.iat friend, the Damon to Grant when the latter stood in sore need of friends, and what was therefore more appropriate and in ac cordance with the fitness of thing than that he should be Secretary of State ? Besides, lie whose exclusive business it would be to deal with foreign governments was in favor of retrenchment and opposed to any more swindling and corrapt rail road subsidies, and was therefore the right man in the right place. And then the astounding discovery was made, which bad hitherto been a pro found secret, that the mantle of Webster and Marcy had fallen oa the brood shoulders cf the sage of Galena. What, also, was more judicious and De cerning than the appointment of A.T. Stew art as Secretary of the Treasury ? Was he nt a second Rothschild, although neither a Galla'in or a Chase, and had he rot been an original Grant man ? Why should not the disabling act of 1789 in Stewart's case be repealed just to accommodate Gen. Grant, and to enable him to carry out this pleasant family arrangement? And when the Senate showed signs of a revolt against executive dictation, and when Gen. Grant, having dis covered his huge blunder, withdrew bis first message from the Senate, these newspaper Jim Crews w keeled about and turned alwut and jumped to the conclusion that Grant had committed a serious mistake that the law was a marvellously proper one that it ought to stand, and that Stewart should be remanded to hi ailks. his shawls, his linens ami his lice. And then, although John A. J. Cresswell had been an original and ram pant rebel, and had raised a military com pany in 1861 to rasist the passage of the northern troops'throngh Maryland, yet when his name was announced as Post Master General, it was hailed with paeons of de light he was in full and eutire accord with the party of "great moral ideas," and his selection by Gen. Grant was & graceful and fitting testimonial to the loyalty of the South. Although Gen. Grant had declared his intention of permitting Gen. Schofield to remain in the War Department for a short time, and had expressed his belief that the civil service should not be supplied by men drafted from the ranks of the army and iiavy, and although he had said that he would appoint a distinguished civilian to sncreed Gen. Schofield, all of which wag endorsed and commended by the radical riw being tht very tf-iflg that Grant ia his wisdom might be expectt-d to ay and to do, yet when he afterwards sounded the retreat and appointed General John A. Raw lins to the War office, these same gentlemen suddenly discovered that it was ia perfect keeping with Gen. Grant's well known char acter to do so. Why not. Were they not, they sang, both from Illinois, and had they not both slept together on the tented field ? nad not Rawlins been Grant's faithful Achates, and what civilian had a right to step between Rawlins and the War Depart ment ? It wps a master stroke of executive policy evincing remarkable foresight, and a Grant and Rawlins had been inseparable in the field how lovely it would be that in the Cabinet they should not be separated. How slavishly do tbes supple political gymnasts adhere to the old regal max m that "the King can do no vrong." Senator lVIilte on tbe Amend ment. This gentleman, who is seriously afflicted with Governor on the brain, was recently delivered of a spread eagle speech in the State Senate in favor cf ratifying the univer sal negro suffrage amendment. He must be a very verdant politician if be supposes that a defence of that amendment will be calcu lated to advance his gubernatorial preten sions. In our judgment, a representative of the people who usurps the power to ratify that amendment, iD violation of his own and his party's solera n p'edee, and thus swin dles his master, the sovereign people, out of the sacred right of changing their own con stitution by their own votes, stands a ten fold better chance of being struck by light ning, or drawing a first class prize in a lottery, than he does of becoming John W. Geary's successor. We have not seen the speech itself, but we learn from the tele graphic report of the Senate debate to a radical paper that "he (White; quoted from the CoBbtitution and other authorities to show it was always designed to give the General Government the ultimate control of suffrage." The late Thaddeus Stevens ws s accustomed to say that William D. Kelly, a radical member of Congress from Philadelphia, was the first man in the Uuited States to make the brilliant discovery that Congress had power under the Constitution to regulate the question of suffrage in the States. The Sen ator from this district is the second, and can hare that honor with him. Stevens him self, we believe, was in favor of conferring the right of suffrage on negroes by a direct act of Congress, but he was honest and man ly enough to say that while he was prepared to do so there was no warrant f.r it in the Constitution. We do not know of any pub lic man in this country of any political repu tation who ever maintained that Congress had any rightful jurisdiction over the sub ject. On the contrary, the right has uni formly been denied by the leading statesmen of all parties from the foundation of the gov ernment down to the present day. The Chi cago Convention distinctly repudiated the extrcife by Congress of any such powtr. when it eleclared that the qn:i-tiin of suffrage iu the Northern States should be left to the people of those States to be regulated as they deemed right aud expedient. It is just such political trimmers as Sena tor White who, in otder to conceal a base betrayal of the rights of the people, have suddenly discovered that the "constitution" and "other authorities" sanction and ap prove their treachery to the people. All doubt was removed from this question by tbe men who framed the constitution, as well as by those who have since expounded its meaning. When the subject was before tLe Convention Oliver Ellsworth, who was afterwards the third Ch'uf Justice of the Uni ted States, rpoke as follows: "The qualifications of the electors stood (n the most proper footiti . The right of tuCYage was a tender point, and strongly guarded hy most of the State constitutions. The people will not readily subscribe to the national con titution if it should subject tr.t m to be dis-irachi.-ed. The Smiles are the beat ji Jges of the circumstances aud temper of their own people. " Jomes Madison, who hai been called the "father'" of the constitutiou, used the follow ing emphatic language : "The right of uffrage is certainly one of the fundamental articles of republican government, and ought not to be left to be regulated by the Legislature of the Union." Alexander Hamilton in The Federalist said : "Suppose an article hd been introduced in to the Constitution of the United States to reg ulate the elect ons lor the particular States, would any man have hesitated to condemn it both as an unwarrantable transposition of power and as n premeditated engine for the destruction of the State governments?" No. 69. Judge Story disposes of the monstrous as sumption tliat Congress can regulate elec tions ic the Statea, or that such a purpose wr.s ever entertained by the framers of the constitution, in the following manner : "What would be said of a clause introduced into the National Constitution to regulate the 8ute elections of the members of the State Legislature? It would be deemed a most un warrantable tra lister of power, indicating a pre meditated design to det-troy the State govern ments. It would be deemed so flagrant a vio lation of principle as to require no comment." -Story on the Jonsiitutiou, seciiou 819. We suppose that these distinguished men knew tolerably well what they were doing when they framed our present national con stitutionquite as well aa the unfledged statesmen of the radical party of the present day who are making such sad havoc of their great work. Here we leave the subject, and are willing that oar readers shall judge between the au thority of such imposing names as Ellsworth. Madison, Hamilton and Story and the ad captandam arguments of Senator Harry White. " The Boston Traveler, feeling in a cood humor, says. In speaking of the Cabinet, that "New England is getting a sood share of roast beef and plum pnddin?, while Hew York has to put up with Fish." The Bos ton Transcript, also lively, expresses sur prise that General Grant should want an other fish in his Cabinet when he bad Adolph in already. General Granl's Relations. Happy the man who so fortunate as to boast thaf he is a relative of General Grant. It is a big thing the certain symbol of suc cess the magical lamp of Alladln to him who bangers and thirsts after office. While others fear and tremble, and live on hop deferred, which makes the heart aick, he may reasonably conclude that hts calling and election are sure beyond all peradventure. Uneasy lies the head of tbe seeker after of fice. Not so, however, if be is a relative of our President. What need he care about recommendations from the sovereign people, or letters of endorsement from influential peliticians? Less favored mortals may have troubled and disturbed dreams, and only awaken to find that the coveted prize has eluded their grasp, but he rests in serene and absolute consciousness of ultimate success. Nor need he incur the expense of a pilgrim age to the Mecca of politicians, there to trum pet his own praise in behalf of his untiring devotion to the loyal cause, and to conciliate the member from his own district into an en dorsement of his peculiar claims. From all this vexation of spirit and of purse he is blissfully exempt. The first Napoleon did a very extensive business in this way for his relatives, both in tbe direct and collateral line. And he did it, as he did every thing else, on a most lib eral and magnificent t-cale. parcelling out among thom thrones and kingdoms and prin cipalities made vacant by his sovereign will. Gen. Grant promises to follow ia his foot steps in a more humble because in a more republican way. The daughter of a former Governor of this State was so elated over her father's success that in her simplicity she believed the whole family were elected to office, and that they were all governors. History seems to be re peating itself under the present administra tion. One of Grant'f brothers-in-law, Gen. Dent, has been.provided with a comfcrtablc position in the White House. Another brother-in-law. Dr. Sharp, haa been transferred from the Tst-office at Richmond to the much coveted office of Marshal of the District of Columbia, while a third, Mr. Casey, has been invested with the lucrative position of Collector of the Revenue at New Orleans beginning for the first week under the new dispensation. Bodeu Tubs' benevolent prayer ran thus : Lord bles. me and my wife, my son John and his wife, and let all the rest of the world take care of themselves " Another Blunder. Daring the cxpiiing hours of President Johnson's administration he granted par dous to certain criminals who had been con victed in the United States Courts, in New York and Boston, for tftVnces against the general government. Whether these par dons were properly issued or not, we cf course cannot say, nor is it necessary here to discuss that question. Oue of the very first official acts of Gen. Grant was t telegraph to the Uuited States Marshals in the two cities named, directing them to return the pardons to Washington if they had not al ready been delivered to the persous in whose favor they bad been issued. In some in stances the pardons had been delivered, whilst in a few others they had not, and the prisoners were still kept in confinement. Gen. Grant was induced to take this incon siderate step by Washburne, tbe five days wi nder of the State Department. The act was applauded, as usnal, by the radical press as an evidence that Gan. Grant ''meant business." Any ordinary lawyer could have told him that Washburne's hasty and ill considered advice was altogether wrong, and that he (the President) bad exceeded his power. As there was likely to be some dif ficulty about the matter the question was referred to the Attorney General for his de cision. .He has decided that the revocation of the parJons by Gen. Grant will not stand the test of law that tbe pardon by Presi dent Johnson was conclusive when it was placed in the hands of the Marshal that it was perfectly immaterial whether the par dons had been delivered to the persons in tended to be pardoned or not, and that if the person having them in custody should refuse to release them, the Court would discharge them on a wiit of habaes corpus. If Attor ney General Hoar bad been at Washington at the time, and if bis advice had been taken instead of Washburne's. the President would not have committed such a palpable blunder.

Give them a chance, good people, and they will shortly surprise you with their appreciation of your needs and their ability to meet them. A Darxed Claim on Grant. It is one of the most anomalous and romantic inci dents connected with the hunt for place, that ia Washington, at the present moment! looking for an office, are members of a fam ily living out of St. Louis, who knew Mr. Grant several years ago, when he used to haul wood. The plea special which they put in is, that on one notable occasion-Mr. Grant carted some fuel to them, and that the mother of the household called him into the Lack kitchen and carefully darned a considerably dilapidated overcoat cf tbe then teamster and now President. Since then the family have met with reverses, and hearing of the;"great American gift en terprise" sot up since March 4, have sent on several of their number for an office for the husband of the lady who sewed tht his torical garment several years age, JrlacSliane nt V'asliuton. j Dear Mac I have been out of print eo long that I am almost ashamed to intrude myself uponyour readers without a formal introduction. But I hare been on the ram page again, aa Joe Gargery would aay, and wish to give some account of nay travel. A few evenings since found ma seated in the Washington City train at the Baltimore depot. As I was a stranger, and wore a shockinglv bad hat, I attracted little or no observation. A h eavy delegation from Pitta burgh occupied the smoking car with roe, and while waiting for the train to start they commenced a thorough ventilation of the modus operandi of making appoiutments at the Federal City. I oon learned by the conversation that they had all a keen scent on the fle.h-pots of Egypt. They gave Smon Cameron a few. He had sold them out "body and breeches" had got up a slate cf his own had reached the footstool of power, and every thing he asked at the hands of the President was Granted. In short, they made him worse than Simon Maocs of old, who was excommunicated from the primitive church for trying to buy preferment, whereas this Simon had actually succeeded in purchasing all be wanted. Finally, a sandily complected military law yer insisted that his conduct came up to Blackstone's denfiition of the crime of SI MON Y, in purchasing the preferments of tbe Radical Church. It was suggested, however, that there might still be "balm in Gilead." and a physician thar would be found in the pot son of the Virgin Senater, Hon. John Scott ; and he must be called upon to chock the Simoniacal influences among tht ''powers that be." The cars started and drowned further re marks, when a little Scotch-Irishman, with a very strong but short handled pipe,6eated himself beside me. We entered into conver sation. He told me he lived in Washington and hinted a desire to know if I was after an office. A negative reply btought on the remark from him that he had got "one of the best offices in the city from Grant him self." "Ah! what is it?" "It is," said he, removing his pipe and assuming an air of conscious dignity, "it is the right to remove the night sile from the public build ings." On niy remarking that I was not aware of any rich position being in the gift tf the PreMi'e it, he answered that it was "a ver necessary t ffice. and be wouldn't take $1,000 for his priry-lege " "Then." said I, "you are an Irish radical." "Yes." he answered, "but I'm none of the Pope's Irish I was always a Free S Her. and that's why tl e President guv me the libtrty of the night sile." Twelve o'clock next day found me on the floor of the House of Representatives. Mr. Blaine, the Speaker, a solemn, earnest look ing Yankee, rapped with his gavel to call the House to order, when a prayer was of fered by the chaplain. Here I was puzzled to understand the religions faith of Congress. Tbe members did not kneel during prayer, like the Methodists and Catholics ; neither did they etaad up like the Baptists and Presbyterians ; but each one remained in hia seat writing, or talking, or looking around. So universal was this that when I observed six of the members standing up during the prayer I took it for granted they were trans gressing the rules of the House. I after wards ucdersto d, however, that these six standing members represented the three con tested districts from PennRvlvar'ia. and that the members stood because they had not got their seats yi! But I must close for the present by sub scribing myself Ycurs to command, MacShane. Steekt & Sjhtu". If w were asked for a striking example of business success in this metropolis, we should cite the case of Messrs. Street & Smith, propiietors of the popnlar New Yoik Weekly, known by their name. Some fiften years ago we knew Frank Street as the faithful business manager of the late Amor Williamson, pro prietor of the Dispatch, and Francis 8mith as a writer for the columns of that well known j nimal. Mr. Williamson had start ed the Weekly, and run it for a long time at a heavy expense, but, weary of tbe many business cares pressing upon him, eventual ly relinquished it to his old employees. Street & Smith. For a long timo these young men struggled along, spending their entire income to fill the col urns of their pa per with stories by tbe most acceptable au thors, and advertising their business to an extent i,omelimea far beyond their immedi ate resources. Bnt their foresight and en terprise paid. To-day the proprietors of the WeelJy are wealthy men. Street, who is a fi.st-rate business manager, owns a big slice ot the thriving village of Greenpoint; while Smith, who a few years ago was a j ur. printer, proved a host iu himself, has just bought a splendid Filth avenue mansion for bi family residence, besides dipping peeply into Boulevard lots and similar luxuries. The success of these partners ought to be a lesson to young men generally. They be gan at the bottom of the ladder, worked hard, spent sparingly for personal matters, but with a prodigal band to promote busi ness, by securing the best talent and the most extended publicity, and their reward is already assured. They are now on the high road to rank among the millionaire. It will hardly be credited, but these very men, to whom a decade since a hundred dollars was almost a fortune, are now nai 1 to sometimes spend as much as forty thous and dollars in advertising the first number of a new fctory in the New York Weekly. AT. Y. Sun. The White Pine Silver Mines, on the borders of Nevada and Utah, still continue to attract large numbers of persons from all parts of the Pacific States. The excitement is reported to exceed that which prevailed at the time of the discovery of tho Washoe mines. Fifty companies have beeu formed in San Francisco, to explore the White Pine region, and crawds of miners, shopkeepers, speculators and gamblers are rushing along the Central Pacific Railway to Elko, the eastern terminus, where stages are taken There aTe not enough h' uses at White Pine Mines to accommodate tbe daily increasing popnlation, and the persons living in tent have been suffering severely from exposure to the cold and from scarcity of provisions besides. The district covers fifty square miles, and already containsthree towns, the chief of which is called H mil ton. The silver ore is in the form of chlorides and sul phurets, and is found io fiat sheets, imbed ded in magnesian limestone. The ore is reported to be very rich, worth in many cases $12 a pound, but generally from $2,000 to $5,000 per ton. The miners were only discovered last autumn, and large amennts of bullion have already been aud still continue to be sent to San Francis co. The unnoal presentation of the ore renders it difficult to stake nut tbe claims on the plan heretofore adopted, and serious disputes have arisen between the miners, the shafts having been sunk very near each other, to the same neighborhood there are also to be found nnmerous veins of argen tiferous lead and copper, said to be very valuable, but the mountains eoatainicg them are In comparison with the WThit f ine, only called tht Bate Metal Ridge.

Patrick Carroll, employed by the Pennsylvania Railroad Company at Pitts burg, was run over and instantly killed on the 16th inst., by a backing train near the Union depot. Jesse R. Grant prognosticated the Presidency of his son when he wrote (for the New York Ledger) that "Ulysses, when a very small boy, was very fond of money and presents." There need be no immediate anxiety about tbe Alabama claims. Mr. Grant will not be ready to attend to our foreign relations till he has satisfactorily settled all his own poor relations. On the 9th inst., a young lady. Mis Emma Crantharnel, was burned to death, at Line Lexington. Montgomery county, by the explosion of a kerosene lamp as sho was proceeding up stairs to bed.

Prof. Cleveland described a singular phenomenon that occurred about the year 1807. when they were as large as a barrel. There were two outbreaks of convicts at Sing Sing Penitentiary Thnasday. One occurred just before four o'clock in the morning, when two keepers were gagged, and five prisoners escaped. One of the keepers was strangled to death by tbe gag. Two of the prisoners were taken at Tarry town. The second outbreak was at one o'clock, when several convicts on the dock attempted to escape down tht river, but were fired upon, and seven of them wonnd ed, one mortally. None of the prison guards or officers were injured. "Mac," the Washington correspondent of the Cincinnati Enquirer, characterizes President Grant as "the smallest great man of the century ," among other proof relates the fid that on "the day before the inaug uration President Johnson wrote a note to the incoming President inviting him to ride with him to the Cipitol." To this Grant did not even condescend to reo'v.
