THE DAILY APPEAL
if. if. &ghels : : : : : : : : : : : : Editor. Wednesday Morning, Jan. 32, 1868 PRESIDENTIAL. Twenty-four years ago, John Tyler occapied tbe place now filled by another accidental President who has betrayed his party. The Whigs had gained a Tic tory for the Bank by electing Harrison, and lost it entirely by the "my policy" of tbe hook-nosed traitor who wept crocodile tears over Henry Clay's defeat for the Presidential nomination, and who once had the honor of sleeping with John Minor Botts. Polk came in for four years, and then " history repeated itself " by Taylor's death and Fillmore's accession to the Executive office. Now while the remarkable fact exists that all Presidents not elected by Democratic votes within the past quarter of a cen tury have died suddenly and been suc ceeded by incumbents who hare gone contrary to the policy of the party which elected them, it is also to be re marked that the nomination of a mili tary hero proved, twice ont of three times, a winning game. Scott's nomi nation, in 1852, was a fatal mistake of tbe Whigs, inasmuch as it was done by poshing aside Henry Clay, who better deserved it than any other man then living. But the history of the country bows that a record embracing the fame and glitter of military glory as an al most irresistible appeal to popular favor ; and Poor Pierce's " militia generalship bad to be burnished np and kept before the people as an offset to Scott's great renown, impaired by a habit of severe pomposity and tbe rid; cole attaching to " a hasty plate of aonp." And nil this is a rather point less preface to expressing tbe convic tion that Grant stands before the Ame rican people to-day with a more spotless and cherished fame than any military chieftain since Washington's time cer tainly as great a Captain and of fewer personal defects than General Jacksoa. Tbe signs of tbe times are highly indi cat; re cf bis nomination next May, at the Republican Convention at Chicago. We are free to confess that we had jist as soon see Chase President as Grant. But the bulk of loyalists de rnand Grant's nomination, and it would be folly to disregard so argent and un mistakable an intimation of tbe popular choice. We can have no donbt that Grant will be the nominee. It seems a foregone conclusion that such is to be the case Bat whoever is elected by the loyal people of this Republic to the Presiden tial office will be simply the selected ex ponent of Unionism ; and history hav ing tanght as that Vice Presidents are not remarkable for their trustworthiness to succeed anti-Democratic Presidents, removed by death, quite as much care needs to be used in tbe selection of a candidate for that position as is impe rative ia the choice of a nominee for the Presidency itself. We must avoid tempting the Booths to get rid of Grant as Lincoln was disposed of, by selecting his possible successor from among such men as are distinguished for their well known loyalty to country and piinciple sacb a man as Senator Williams of Oregon, for instance. That clear head ed publicist has been mentioned in con nection with the place ; and, among other good reasons, he being a Pacific Coast man, we should like to see him placed on the ticket with Grant. Han nibal Hamlin ; Ben Wade; ex-Governor Boutwelt, of Massachusetts; John A. Logan ; Speaker Colfnx, any of these would Cll tbe bill exactly. But don't Ist's hitch on a nobody or a knave to catch the fool vote or tbe " border State" influence. In other words, It t Grant's occupancy of the White House be mads something besides a temptation to Copperhead conspirators and rebel a3sas3ins to abbreviate bis term of effic? fjf the benefit of a second Andrew Johnson and tbe unreconstructed rebels. Sjw that the people have spared " tbe BY STATE TXUOSAPH. From the Virginia Enterprise of yesterday. Washinotoic, January 19. Everything is quiet in the War Office. No official commu nication has yet passed between the Presi dent and Stanton. A. Herald special says the defeat of the Supreme Court bill in the Senate appears to be a foregone conclusion. The Reconstruction bill seems to be quite quite likely to pass the House. The Committee on Foreign Affairs will re port about Thursday, such a bill concerning the rights of naturalized citizens abroad as will give entire satisfaction to that class of citizens. McGrorty, the defeated candidate for Con gress in Utah has arrived and will contest the seat of Hooper. New York, January 20. The journals generally denounce the arrest of Geo. Fran cis Train, and demand his immediate re lease. Washington specials say that the State Department will take steps to that end immediately. It is believed that the English Government will make reparation at once It is reported that the British Legation have positive information that Train was sent to Ireland for the purpose of being arrested and to make a test question as to the right of England to arrest American citizens for lan guage used beyond the dominions of Great Britain. The British war steamer Jason has arrived with the new British Minister and suite as passengers. CONGRESSIONAL SENATE. Washington, January 20. Wilson pre sented a petition relative to tbt rights of American citizens abroad, which was re ferred. Howard from the Pacific Railroad Com mittee reported a bill relating to the central branch of the Union Pacific Railroad, which was laid on the table and ordered printed. A bill extending the boundaries of Wash ington so as to include Georgetown, and granting 1,000,000 acres of land fur the bene fit of the public schools of the District of Columbia was referred. HOUSE. A resolution, instructing the President to demand an explanation of the British Gov ernment for the execution of Michael O'Bri en, an American citizen, and declaring any infringement of the rights of naturalized citizens a cause of war, and for the recall of Minister Adams, was referred to the Com mittee on Foreign Affairs. W3T IKDLE3. New Yoais., January 19. The steamer from Havana gives fearful accounts of the cholera there, which is stated to average 300 cases a day, nearly half of which are fatal. A dispatch from Havana says a slight shock of an earthquake occurred at Trinidad on Friday. Honduras advices state that a revolution is apprehended in the interior. Forty cases of cholera had occurred at Truxilio. The Jamaica Government has been noti fied by the British Colonial Office that the responsible offices of that island should be filled by the appointment of persons from England, to avoid political prejudice and party influence. Mt. Chase, The New York Times says : The so-called "friends of Mr. Chase" are constantly making announcements as to what the Chase party will do in case their candidate fail to receive tbe Republican nomination for the Presidency. The latest of these statements comes through the Boston Journal, and is to the effect that " Mr. Chas.s friends " are determined, should they not carry the Chicago Conven tion with the aid of delegates from the re constructed States, to withdraw, and to have a new convention at St. Louis, which they can control. This is a very fine programme, but we doubt if Mr. Chase will consider that it offers him much chance of an elec tion. To this accusation the N. Y. Tribune, a decided friend of the Chief Justice, says : Let us nail this just here. We believe we have some rieht to speak for the " friends of Mr. Chase," and we beg to say to the Times I and to whom it mar concern, that they in- . tend to support whoever may be nominated by the Republican Convention to be held in Chicago on the 20th day of May next ensuing. We trust Mr. Chase may receive that nomination ; but whether he does or not, the candidate will be heartily supported by him, as well as his friends. There need be no concern on that score.

" George Sliver man's Explanation," has the following characteristic passage : " Mother had the gripe and clutch of poverty upon her face, upon her figure, and, not least of all, upon her voice- Her sharp and high-pitched words were squeezed out of ner, as by com pression of bony fingers on a leathern bag ; and she had a way of rolling her eyes about and about the cellar, as she scolded, that was gaunt and hungry. Father, with his shoulders rounded, would sit quietly on a three-legged stool, until she would pluck the stool from under him, and bid him go bring some monrv home. Ihen be would dis mally ascend the steps, and I, holding my raeied shirt and trowsers togetner wit a a hand (my only braces), would feint and dodge my mother's pursuing grasp at my hair. A "worldly little devil was mother's usual name for me. Whether I cried for that I was in the dark, or for that I was cold, or for that I was hungry, or whether I squeezed myself into a warm corner when there was a tire, or ate voraciously wnen there was food, she wou'd still sav, " O, you worldly little devil." And the sting of it was that i quite well knewmysell to oe a worldly little devil. Worldly as to waut- me to be housed and warmed ; worldly as to wanting to be fed ; worldly as to tbe greed with which I inwardly compared how much I got of those good things with how much father and mother got, when rarely those good things were going."

Upon the arrival of the steamer from America last night, she was boarded by a strong force of police, and several uasseneers were arrested, among them George Francis Train, Grinnel and Gee, charged with being prominent members of the Fenian organization. There was some excitement. Cork. January 19. Strict search of the erson and baggage of George Francis Train isclosed no proof of his complicity with Fe nian movements or justifying his arrest. Train asserts that he came over as speci.l corespondent of the World. He has formal ly protested through the United States Con sul against his detention. A Fenian manifesto was found posted on the wall of the Mansion House this morning. No clue has bsen obtained cf the perpetrator. The boldness and audacity of the remans, in the face sf the vigorous'measures for their repression, causes much uneasiness. Vienna, January 19. The remains of Maximilian were formally received by the Imperial family at the palace to-day, and the obsequies this evening were celebrated with freat pump. London, January 29.
