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.
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

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
k tat Kai.
At Si wot coming up town from
the Atlanta and Richmond Air
Lino depot yesterday, he indulged
in a little song to himself. Two
other negroes passed by, and one
of them ahouted back i
, ''Pin up your lip ole man, and
slop dat racket.'
Who yer talkiu tor?" sold Si,
stopping short and turning around.
"talkiu to you:, who do yer
think I'm tnlkin to, you bid Guinea

Just then 8i took a run with

after there waa a nigger In the mud,
