The following extract, from Mr.
ienderson't seech in the Avery
, contains the "reflections up-
'resident," to which refor
matio in the dispatches from
the AttdKpey General ;
This Is UieJdot upou our Gov
ernment, tliafSt Ih pOMiblo for
suen things to exisrm4ia
not cxit in englanu, r ranee,
or any other civilized Government,
but are peculiar to our boasted
republic. It is party, party, party
that damns our country, and be
who has the nerve to resist the be
hests of party is worthy of more
credit than the bravest of old Ne
man soldiers. Under the name of
party every fraud and infamy
wlthm the range of possibilities
are perpetrated. It Is to be hoped
and prayed that the time Is coming
whea a man who has the imperious
force of character to resist the
dictates of party will be looked up
to as a nero. nut we may go to
the bottom corruption may feast
In all onr institutions, and our na
tion may decay and fall boforo we
learn this grind truth. I respect
party when It Is composed of hon
est men, organised for honest pur
poses ; out wnen u is composed of
mon bauded toirother to toorncrrnte

What right hod Duhcock to so
to Douglas to induce him to with
draw his agents?. DouglaKS wa
itlacad In his position to sco that
tho ruvenuo laws of the Govern
ment were properly enforced.
What bttfinoM.theii, had Douglas
with him ? , When an ollkiul goes
Into office, ho should bofieo aml
independent of all influences ex
cept that of law, and if he reeog-1
nlzo any other Hunter, then this!
Government is tumhllntr down.
What right has tho President to
interfere with CouiiultuiiouerDoiig
lass In tho proper dUcharge of hin
duties, or with tho Treasurer?
none; ana Douglass siiowod n la
mentable Wenknexit of character
when he listened to llubeonk's
dictates. Ho should either have
iiiHistcd that bis orders as they ex
luted bo ciui'lctl out. or sh'on Id
have resigned his office.
Douglass now dotormincd thai
Ms only course was to change the
bupervlaors all over tho country,
ana this would necessarily expone
frauds. On January 20, 1876, he
tolographed Iloag: "Von are
hereby ordered to report in per-
on to Supervisor Sutton, who
supersedes McDonald in St. Louis."
This was one of the llrnt moves
toward the change. On February
3, 1876, a telegram signed "8ylph''
was sent iroin nere to iiauoocK,
saying: "Wo have official informa
tion mat the enemy weakens.
Push tiling." This was Joyc's
writing, and the cnomy referred
to were thoso, person i who were
favoring the chango of Sttpervis
ors. A couplo of days later Dong
lass telosrauhed brooks : " Tim
order telling you to report to Sut
ton Is suspended." Now, whv did
Dottglnss bond the supvle hna
of the knee and permit any intor-
icrenee oy uie rrcsmont r This
was Douglass' own business, and
he stood responsible for it under
his official oah. He was bound to
listen to no dictation fVnm thn
President, Babcock, or any other
omccr, ana it was ins duty to see
that order was carried out, or to
