" "The4 Eepublican "lartyl as a party, de nounce the payment of the bonds in green- backs as repudiation-i-as bad faith to the bondholders and disgraceful to the country. Yet we find that the Democratic argument in favor of its justice, together with the result of the late election and the fear of ttw flefeat-which stares. him in the face,, lias compelled Gen.

Like the half witted fellow, who cut off the dog's tail half an Inch each day for a week, oecause the poor creature could not stand to have it all cut off at once, the General shows really more tenderness of heart than common sense. The Courts of the country have held that greenbacks are a legal tender in pay- meut of all debts. During tbe war, to say that greenbacks were not money, was treason," ' copperhead and " butternutlsm. Even when contracts were made' for pay ment in gold, the courts decided that they could be paid' in greenbacks. Yet Gen. Beattt, tiovr avers that greenbacks are not money.. It will not pay debts, he says, but it will '-swindle the creditor out of his just debts, It may cancel 'the debt, but it will -not pay it!" - ' A 1 ' ; Taking it as true, that greenbacks ar not money that they are a "swindle and that all who receive them are cheated, what.do8 (he General propose to do in the case of the poor soldiers Who, during -the war, received .their pittance, ,of. monthly pay fngreeiibacks and in" nothing else?

[Correspondence of the Ohio Statesman.] ' The bill for tbe reorganization of ' the French army has been accepted by the leg' islature, but it will -take some lime before ,it can become a law, on account of the many amendments which have to be added. The fact is that the public opinion is not at all in favor of the new law; it is suffi ciently well known in France that the new system will practically put the life Of every able bodied man to the unconditional dis posal and control of the Government, for the better part of his earthly existence, without offering to the country an adequate guarantee for peace. It is justly argued that such a formidable army ia by no means requisite for the protection of a great na tion, and that If the Government is really desirous of peace, as it professes to be, these extraordinary preparations for a des perate war are superfluous and a draw back to the commercial development of the country, r Napoleon in his defense of the system inaugurated by him puts forth the necessity for France to keep ever peace with' the other European powers in the im proven) enta of the army, and even goes so far as to assert : that the military duties were of shorter duration in France than anywhere on the. continent. He quotes Bussiand Austria for examples where the military system Is Indeed a very oppressive one, but the fact of Russia claiming the services of every one of her subjects for a number, of year's, f oes hot allow compari son with the French system, for it Is a well knOwn fact that atterone year's voluntary. or three years' active service, the Prussian soldier enters at once into the reserve. where be may not be called to arms again in his life except in case of war. The-op position party has, previous to the passing of the bill, proposed a law, by' virtue of which the whole nation is liable to do mil Itary duty according to the pattern of the Swiss republic. : It was not expected that the-resolution would stand any chance of becoming a law; bnt was intended aa a demonstration, hostile to the bill which has since become a law. - It is evident that an army, composed of citizens, is the real sup port of the country against a foreign foe, wherea?i.an army of almost! a million of men, which can at the option of the Gov ernment be raised to ,12,000,000 men, if placed to the unconditional disposal of that Government is a dangerous weapon and can be used at any time for the entire sup pression of tbe political and so cial . liberty r of the nation.

' I have been a silent "looker on " in this city of great commotion, and centre" of attraction, politically, from all parts of the . country, . for several weeks, and I have thought a few .lines now and then might not be unacceptable to your readers, from an impartial observer. of passing events. The people in the great " Weft, I doubt not, are somewhat surprised at the Impudence and daring of tbe Radical party in Congress, after the emphatic and almost overwhelmingjdeclslon of the people at the ballot box at the late elections ; but this surprise can be no greater- there than, iii this city. At the commencement ol the. session of Congress, the Radical party in Congress seemed to realize their utter over throw, and their faces wore a sad and de jected look, ; whilst the Democrats - were cheerful. It was thought and hoped by all lovers of the peace and prosperity of the, country that these fellows had learned a lesson from the' voice of the people that augured well for the future of the country, and that their future action would be gov-j ierned more in accordance.; with the expressed " will - of t the , nation," , to which" they had ' themselves ao- often: directed the' "attention of the Democracy' as even superior n. .' power and potency, to law Itself. But, alas, for Radical teach ing and consistency, when tbe voice of the people threatens them with defeat and the consequent loss of power. It has been ev ident, ever since the return of members of Congress after their Ions: adjournment dur-" Ing the' holidays that they were growing' desperate, and any thing that was necessa ry to-.be done; in -order,-to. -retain power must be done, and done 'quickly; regard less lal ike of law,s and common decency; hence we see such men as Fessenden and Trumbull, of the the Senate, and Bingham and Wilson, of the. House, vieing in "radi calism with Stephens, Ashley, Sumner and Morton. : In short, Messrs. Editors, it is plain, to ah impartial . observer here, "this Radical party has recently become homogeneous, and are determined "by nil or any kind of mock legislation to retain power,, even to forcing the people to assent to their su premacy by lorce"of"arms. This, in my opinion, they will have to unmistakably indicate they will do, before these unscrupulous usurpers will stay- their hands. Do not think, Messrs. Editors, that I write hastily in what I have said. I hive as reluctantly been forced to this conclusion, as any man possihly could have been.: Why, what have they not already done ? -They have Intro duced measures to .prevent the people of the Southern States, even under the Becon struction act, from rejecting whatever con stitution may be made by the boeus con ventions now in session in those States. ' It is determined here by the party that no Southern State shall be admitted to repre sentation that shall dare send representa tives to Congress who are not Radicals. They will punish Gen. Hancock, by reduc ing his rank in the army, for daring to say that the civil law shall prevail in Louisiana. They will authorize Gen. Grant, in defiance of the Constitution, to remove all officers who do not carry out the "Radical pro gramme in the Southern States, and Gen. Grant has given evidence already that there is no mean job tbey may authorize him to do that he will not execute, as he clearly indicated yesterday by his surrender of the War office to Stanton,- in violation of an explicit promise to President Johnson he would not do it. They will muzzle the Su preme Court so that a decision of that tri bunal of last resort of constitutional liberty, cannot be made adverse to the constitution ality of the reconstruction acts they have passed,as wonld undoubtedly be the case by a majority of the court, in a case coming be fore the court, from Mississippi, and now. under discussion. They will not only do all these things, Messrs.' Editors, but they will-as surely impeach' Andy Johnson, and suspend him during tbe trial (for which purpose an act is - maturing in the Senate), as he . proves an impediment to' their designs. As might reasonably be ex pected,, all these hiyh handed' measures have created great excitement in political circles, and the worst apprehensions are en tertained, for our country I don't know that' Mr. Johnson is sufficient - for these things. -. I have not much confidence that: he will take the ." bull by the horns,' though he talks well. But what shall we do, you may well ask, in this high carnival of usurpation and revolution ? I say let the people of the Statesj in their Sover-' eignity, in primary , conventions meet and say that "by the eternal" it la .time to; assert their power," and' say that these things must stop. Ohio need not be ashamed of her three representatives ; they are at their posts, and are watching with steady nerve and determined purpose to clo their duty to the country, and their imme-. diate constituents, and after a little more experience in legislation will make them selves heard and feltGen. Morgan, of course, feels reluctant to engage as an ac tive participant yet in the debates, -as his seat Is contested ; and here let me say to tbe citizens of Ohio, that notwithstanding he had a clear majority of nearly 300 over; Delano, in I860, and his district gave 2,000. Democratic majority at the last fall's elec tion, there is a man mean and baseenough, to take his seat, and a Congress corrupt enough to give it to him, if by so doing they can subserve a partizan purpose.' So do not be astonished even it the gallant Morgan is ousted to give place to the niP1 scrupulous and snaky Delano Morgan, who has defended the honor and fame of his country in two wars, with 2,000 majority of Democrats in his district, ousted by Delano, who said, he would give $5,000 rather than that his son should enter the United States Army I Oh, what lovers o the gallant soldier these Radicals would prove themselves 1ri"this event ; which I say again is not improbable. : v e a '' No little anxiety existed here amongst Democrats from all parts of the country, as to the selection the Democratic Legisla ture would make on the 14tb, of a Senator to represent Ohio in the Senate of the United States.

We are told that a little girl, ,13 years of age. named Susan Trout, lies at the point of death, at the residence of Adam Haima Esq., on Gay street, between ; High .'and Third, from lockjaw, caused by excessive skating. Her limbs are paralyzed, and her pains have produced spasms. We are told that this is the fifth case ot the kind that has happened in this city during the wintec. though the others were not as severe as this. Skating is a good,' healthy exercise. and, when indulged in with moderation,, is to be recommended. ;. But there is such, a thing as over-exercise. Some little folks get on their skates early in the mornir.g, and remain on the ice as long as daylight holds. This .is more, than any .one can stand. An hour's skating .ii as much as anyone can Inuulge in safely. P. S. The little girl mentioned ahove died yesterday morning. Deserving of CoMMKNbATio'!f.-Whrn ever a man has public spirit enough to add to the enjoyment of his fellow citizens, we feel like circulating that man. It is pretty generally understood that we have no skat ing rink in Columbus, and must depend on the river for our sport in the line ska torial. But when a heavy fall of snow comes on the ice skating ain't worth, a- cent, and skaters must forego their enjoy ment until the '-next thaw " Our friend Deacon" Dent, who is lord high admiral of the tent on the river at tbe foot of Town street, has gone to the trouble and expense of making a .one-horse, scraper with which ne nas cleaned an tne snow off of about two acres of ice for the beaefltof skaters. Every day about he cleans up bis tract, keeping it in splendid eondrtiopr. Be finds his reward in an approving con- science and tne stamps ,ne takes- in for beer, cakes, candles, skate straps, renting skates by the hour and the like. The Dea con deserves the thanks of all who.: love skating for thejtrouble he has taken in this matter. - - u
