The dueharge of ex-Senator Henderson front the management of the whiskey trials in St., Louis will make an unfortunate impres sion on the public mind- It is re gwtable that a difficulty has a; isen between the President sad Mr Henderson, just at the point when the services of so energetic a pro secutor are needed to enforce the injunction, "Let no guilty ,, ewape." If he hat given offence ne President it would bare been better to let the affront pass unnoticed, when both thelnt... of justice aud the honor of the White House are so desulr lni. . ine President should subor- ornate bit personal rescntmeuta to bis official dutiea. When Mr. IW dorson u the prosecutor a verdict of acquittal would be accepted by the country at a complete vindi. canon or the prisoner. But when ine case It put ia diffcreut hands the public will have no confidence in t&e trial, and will internret the change at an attempt to shield the The successor of Mr. Henderson whoever he may be, cannot be ex. pected to act with Mr. Henderson's fearless energy. He willsccent hi ofllce with a tacit undtrstaiilinr A. a . . ... mat ue is io ao nothing distasteful to the President. Mr. Hcndoi-sou's removal will oMrute on hi suc cessor a a warningnud a reiralnt. It is absurd to say that th Preal- dent was Mr. Henderson's idlent. The Government was his client. and Prcxideut Grant is nirrelv on of its oAk'crs. . FroallwTrilNiii(K.i:irlul).) " - We Have givon the President such hearty aud cheerful praise for his conduct thus far with reference to the whiskey trials at BC Louis, that we hare the better right now to take excopflons to his latest step. The removal of ex-Senator Henderson from his position of government counsel In the prose cutions decs not strike ut as being wise. It certainly is not prudoat to take out of a prosecution of ao much importance as this, an attor ney who It presumably familiar with all tho facia aud the testimo ny ; who Imsbecntn'it from the be ginning, and ie acquainted with Its whole history as no new man com lug into the cats can be. The tiiuple discharge iu tho mhLt of tbetrialt of an attorney who, in a complicated series of prosecutions hat become thoroughly couvcrsniit with every feature of them ; who started with the first threads of evidence that led np to a success ful issue , in tho courts, aud who has already procured tho convic tion of tome of the parties impll cated,ay (n itself be fatal to the success of the government in the prosecutions stilt pending. . We are not surprised that the defend ants In theao cases tho persons comprising tho whiskey ring are congratulating themselves upon a hange in the aspect of affairs to favorable to their - tide. Scarcely anything, could be douc so well calculated to weaken the prosecu tion and strengthen tho defence. From Ihr San Mr. Henderson may have trodden near enough to barely , touch the President's corns ; but in the re port of hit remarks which we have teen, there waa nothing which teemed to make hit removal neces sary. The President occuplet an exceedingly delicate position in this matter. Important officers appointed by him including the chief clerk of the Treasury of tho United States have already been convicted. , And now hit own pri vate secretary and almost constant companion stands in the tame court. Tne removal of Mr. Hen derson at this time would un doubtedly greatly weaken and em barrass the prosecution. Cau the President afford to do an act of that kind ? Wonld it not hurt him more than all that Mr. Hendcrsou conld say about him no matter whafit might be in a lifetime f ' rram On WsrM.1 '. ' , ."' ? . . '"' It it a question who has a right to be considered the worst friend of President Grant ; but there it no question but that ho it hit own worst enemy. Hit interference to , remove tho efficient counsel who hat brought one whiskey thief after another to conviction inSt. Louis, based upon the alleged use by that counsel of languogo disre spectful to himself, will do more not only to prejudice the public opinion of the country against his private secretary, but to dissemin ate among inconsiderate pcoplo d . plieity in these matters. own com plicity in these matters, than any or than all other thiugs that have occurred since these trials began. T sction of the cabinet is the subject of universal discussion this evening, and there Is no mistakin the public sentiment with refer ence to R. Thu sentiment, among menus ana rocs alike, is unques tionably against the wisdom or the decision. 'The President has suf fered ud everyday suffers severer personal attacks upon himself sad his official family than that made by Mr. Hendcrsou, and it is there fore, to be presumed that he would by this time, have come to look upon them with more or lest Indif ference. One attack more or less, etpecisllyifitis without founda tion, even though mode iu court, la not likely to injure him, and tnonia ne considered a small mat terin any light. But the counsel waa very severe on Gen. Babcock and promised lo show that he was connected with fhe conspiracy. The President's friends here fear lhat the country will look with suspicion upon the removal of Mr, Menaorsoii on the heels of that declaration, and they any that the President ought to have been all tho more ready to have given him the chance to nmko good his prom ise, ana instead vfdiuiis mr him should have aided him with all the moral force of his continued sup- .. .

The dismissal or Mr. Houderson at ominally associate, but really loading counsel In the whiskey ring prosecutions will produce an un pleasant hupres.slon upon tho pub lic.

Wo d. ..' menu to guy IhuUnadmluUiratloii should never lnke any notice ol assaults upon its head by one of lis coiiddeutlal officers. When Hen demon's speech wos published we regarded It os a significant sign of tnc low tone of our public life, or at least tho low estimate nut iiuoii it by public opinion, that tho re port did not arouse great and gen eral indignation. If our public life had been pure beyond susnl clou, if no doubtful aiid damaging circumstances had surrounded the Federal administration, a gratuit ous attack in a court of just Ice by a representative ol tho government upon the highest officer in tho country would have licon univer sally rebuked. That it really caus ed scarcely any excitement in the case of Henderson is a fact full of profound suggestion. k tat Kai. From UwCowrtltatioa.)
