Sunday Morning. November s, 1868.
Prophecies About Gencvrtl Grant.
Thero is a Jivoly manifestation
*?ong the prophets. Some predict
one thing, somo another, aa to Grant's
policy-somo from oue motive, some*
from another. Mr. Yallaudighnin
has led in tho prophecy that Genoral
Grant will soon take his stand on tho
Domooratio platform. The prophets
do not know moro tbnu other people,
and it is not probublo that more
credit will bo given to their predic?
tions thau they deserve. If there
were any probability of Gen. Grant's,
turning Democrat, tho event would
hardly bo facilitated by foretelling it,
and that Democrat who makes it
known, is hardly entitled to credit for
wisdom or prudence. But wo have
no idea that Gen. Grant is going to
turn Democrat.
Gen. Grant may adhere to his own
views, without adopting the policy of
either party. He is known to bo a
firm and self-willed man. He has
made no pledgo even to tho party
that has elected bira. Ho is a man
of strong common sense, and, the
Biohmond Dispatch says, having
never been a partisan, is not embar?
rassed by old party prejudices or al?
liances. Therefore, ho is in a fino
condition to adhere firmly to tbe
"Grant party," following its policy
?nd carrying out its measures steadi?
ly and persistently. If ho docs this,
he will fulfil the hopes of many. If
-he docs not, ho will carry out tho
radical policy. That bo will become
Democrat is altogether improbable.
We know nothing of Gen. Grant's
opinions and purposes, and mean net
to speculate upon them. We take
tho following, on the subject, from
the New York Times, (radical,) of
Tuesday morning:
."A correspondent of this paper
said yesterday, that 'Grant's election
will, m reality, be a rebuke to both
wings of our extreme politicians, be?
cause it is well known that ho docs
not represent the extreme partisan
views on either side; and with his
installation into tho Presidency, wo
may safely trnst that moro wise and
more moderate measures will com?
mence to rule the conntry. ' These
views should weigh with patriotic
men who aro opposed to political
turmoil and party fanaticism."
A Washington correspondent of
the Baltimore Gazelle says:
*'A prominent |officer of the army
?who was friendly to Gen. Grant's
election, and known to bo somewhat
in his confidence, remarked to-day
that the General would call around
him os advisers only statesmen of
known conservativa views, nnd that
an ox-member of Congress from Illi?
nois of the Democratic school would
be the first selection for his Cabinet.
..It is a singular fact that no Presi?
dent of tho United States, np to tho
present time, has had a child born in
the White House. It is understood
the fact will not exist long after the
-1th of March next."
Tho New York Herald says:
" 'Let us have pence,' is General
Grant's motto. We look uow to see
these words converted into acts-to
see. tho olive branch substituted for
tho sword in tho Southern States,
negro supremacy quietly superseded, I
ana such mensures adopted ns will
create harmony ont of discord in that
genial und fruitful portion of our
country comprised in the States now
suffering from a mistaken and vin?
dictive, policy. Wo look also, and
hopefully to this, that after the Ith
of Mureil next there will be a check
put upon the monstrous?gprruptions
which prevail in all tho Departments
of tho Government; that economy
shall succeed extravagance in the dis?
bursements of the public funds; that
tho public debt shall bo reduced as
rapidly as possible, and that tho taxes
which press upon the people shall be
made more easy to bear.
"The pcoplo expect that General
Grant will accomplish ali this, and if
he fails to do so, he will not have
completed the purpose for which he
is elected. But wo havo great confi?
dence in General Grant."
Copies of tho long expected fae
simile edition of the Vatican New
Testament, in Greek, have been re
ceivod in London. Tho entire work
will consist of six volumes, five of
which will contain the texts of the
Old und New Testament?, und the
other critical notes and fae similes.
Tho book is a large square folio, witb
three columns on each pago, answer?
ing to llioso of tho original manu?
script, line for lino and ictter for let?
ter. Tho work appears under the
special auspices of tho Pope, and is
edited by Fathers Vereollooo and
Coz/.a. Tho editors promise tho re?
maining volumes nt intervals of ten
months; and tho missing portion of
the Vatican manuscript is ?applied
from another manuscript of the sane
entrt Candidate.
The following document may be
placed on the same shelf with tho
article published jetrterday, relative
ta the doings of the Kn Klux. It
was published, in -John W. Forney's
paper-tho Washington GhronicUt
on the 23d nit. The assertions aro
BO perfectly ridiculous, that au indi?
vidual would bo thought worthy of
the asylum if he should attempt to
contradict them :
Hon. S. H?ge, of Columbia, Sonth
Carolina, associate justice of tho Su
promo Court of that State, called
upon General Schofield, Secretary of
War, yesterday morning, to repre?
sent to him tho condition of affairs
in South Carolina, and to request
certain disposition of the troops now
in that State. Judge Hogo has been
especially delegated by Governor
Scott to come North and havo an in?
terview with tho Secretary, and pro?
perly stato to him the true status of
Judge Hogo was accompanied to
tho War Office by Geueral Littlefield
and Hon. W. N. Coleman, of North
Carolina, the latter gentleman Attor?
ney-General of tho State, and Geno
ral Dont, who introduced the party
to General Schofield. Messrs. Lit?
tlefield and Coleman, whilst not call?
ing upon the Secretary of War for
any specific purpose, yet in conver?
sation related facts connected with
their own Stato rivaling thc horrors
related by Judge H?ge.
General Schofield received the gen?
tlemen very cordially, and Judge
Hogo at once stated his mission. We
give a brief outline of the Judge's
statements to tho Secretary, and aro
gratified to know that tho result of
the interview was entirely satisfactory
and the mission a successful one.
It has been tho determination of
the rebels of South Carolina to ex?
terminate all white Union moa re?
siding in tho Stato. More especially
is their hatred extended toward the
leaders of tho Republican party, and
within tho past fifteen days twenty
five murders of Union men have been
committed in Abbeville County alone,
two of whom were members of thc
Legislature. Colored mon have been
taken from their beds at night, theil
shirty drawn over their heads, and
then brutally beaten.
Armed bodies of the Ku Klus
patrol tho country, and, with mur?
derous aim, shoot down tho husband
and father ns he sits at the table will

nearly every ouse, will not seek ou!

tho Sheriff is disposed to act ho i?
powerless-can got no assistance
The Ku Klux have sworn to kil
eveiy Union member of the Legisla
ture ere tho day for assembling, dc
siring a new election to bo held; and
by intimidation of tho colored mei
at the polls, secure the State govern
mont to themselves, and carry 01
bloody wnrfare. In tho event of th
election of Seymour and Blair, om
of tho most prominent Democrnti
politicians stated that it was then th
intention of the Southern "whit
men" to cull a convention, composci
of tho samo, upset the present Stat
governments, and make them to sui
the principles for which they fough
through a long and bloody war.
Over 15,000 stand of arms hav
been imported into the State (froi

Tho House of Representatives con?

Of these 103 are from the States that

the present Congress, of this last
number of 145 are Republicans and
?8 aro Democrats-three Republicans
to ono Democrat. To the next Con?
gress there aro said to bo elected in
the samo States 12G Republicans nnd
67 Democrats-a gain on tho part of
tho Democrats, which gives them
moro than on ' third of tho members
of the House, and will thus enable
them to sustain the veto. It may
safely be assumed that tho Democrats
will elect to tho House, even includ?
ing ten Southern members, one-third
of tho whole number. The telegram
gives tho Democrats 73 members-a
gain of 27-in tho States aforesaid.

tako tbe following from a Philadel?
phia paper, to show how "close things
aro run up there," and of how much
importance even three minutes may
be, not only to a man who expects to
bo huug, but also to one who desires
to vote, and trust that a practical ap?
plication of the moral conveyed by
it may bo made by all of our readers,
moro especially those who, like the
young man mentioned, need only a
short timo to take them out of their
legal infancy:
"A curious and amusing question
is pending at Sadsbury, Pennsylva?
nia. Mr. C. Pasoy Thorne, son ol
J. Williams Thorne, came of age on
tho day of tho October election ol
this year. Tho Democrats, anxious
to exclude every Republican ballot,
challenged his vote, upon tho ground
that ho was not born until 7 o'clock
in tho eveniug, nt which time the law
provided that the polls should close.
It was argued, on behalf of the ap?
plicant, that thc law recognized nc
fraction of days, and that he was ou
titled to voto even though ho had nol
been boru until 11.50 P. M., on sait
day. Tho Democratic election
officers, however, contended that ht
must be between tho ages of twenty
one and twenty-two years, and tba'
ho would not have reached tba'
period until tho hour of 7 o'clool
had passed. In reply to this, Mr
Thorne, Sr., asked tho officers if the^
recognized 365 days and six hours ai
a year, and they replied that the^
did. Ho then showed that six leaj
years had occurred in t".jo lifetime o
his son; and further mathematically
demonstrated that he had lived twen
ty-one times 365 days and six hours
and had eighteen hours to spare
This ruther dumb-founded theDumo
crutic officers, but they still d?cline
to accept the ballot. At thre
minutes before 7 o'clock, the Ropub
lican judge took the ballot and de
posited it in tho box."
