And with Grant to steer the ship of State,
Our fl i? sdiall rule the sens ;
No " Dominion" shall he North of u,

And likewise Mexico!
For with President Uljsae3
Will be few who care to fight
May he. rule the countrj he has saved,
And God defend the right!
So boys! a final bumper,
While we all in choru3 chant
" For next President we nominate
Our own Ulysses Grant!"
And if asked what State he hails from,
This our sole reply shall be,
14 From near Appomattox Court IIou3e,
With it 3 famous apple tree!"
For 'twas there to our Uljsse3
That Lee gave up the fight
Now, boys, 41 To Grant for President,

There are two ways of administering
government in behalf of the people one,
the demagogue's way, by which the passion
of the hour is made supreme, and the oth
er, the way of statesmanship, by which
the welfare and elevation of the people are
sought, rather than their mere gratifica
tion. In a country such as ours, tlie nat
ural tendency of political parties is toward
the former. It requires no sacrifice of
present popularity. It leaves its devotees
glide along with the current, while the
advocates of the other method are as men
moving against the tide.
The bane of popular government is this
strong tendency to deify popular passion.
Especially in a country like our own,
where there is not sinipty a recognition of
the people in point of fact, but where their
will is the very basis of the governmental
structure, deification of that will as em
bodied in blind passion is more than likely
to be accepted as the easiest, surest, and
quickest road to power. The people,
that is, the mass of them, have good mo
tives that amiable quality with which
hell is said to be paved but close discern
ment, nice discrimination, and sagacious
forethought, all experience proves arc only
exceptionally theirs. They need, not
leaders simply, but teachers; not politi
cians, merely, but statesmen. Sometimes
events happen by which a generation is
schooled into wisdom. A war, a financial
crisis, or an insurrection often thus be
comes only less than a blessing, or ina
prove even the salvation of a land. The
revolution gave our fathers more wisdom
than they would have gained from the
precepts of as many generations as there
were years ot that contest. o. in our
own day, the conflict with the rebellion
raised people and leaders up to views
which they either could not or would not
comprehend before. AVe emerged from
that bloody contest with a people better
fitted for self-government than when they
went into it. Yet,' as is always the case.
there arc some ounces in t lie cl;irs, some
who adorn the fool's cap, though, out of
harity. it should not be made to adorn
them. The dance in this case is the old
Democratic one. It will stick to its mud
dleheadism, (if we may coin a word.) It
is desirous arain to tret into power. Nor
is anything more natural than that it
should be so. But it blocks the only ave
nue by which it can attain power. It was

The Liberal press of Germany and France,
in-discussing the Presidential canvass, in
variably sum up the case in favor of Grant
and the party he heads. The JJlecteur, a
Freueh journal, foreshadows the result of
the electiou in a remarkably clear manner.
Basing its arguments on the result of the
Maine nud Vermont elections, the Eectcur
"The current which has started from
those Xortheru States is fatal to the party
which still persists in covering its hideous
ness with the fair and noble name De
mocracy. Democracy ? The party which
now calls itself Democratic is no more so
than the llus&ian Government, which some
of its admirers likewise call Democratic.
The Democracy in the United States is
emphatically a party uf prejudice aud re
action, a party clinging to the errors of
the past, and execrating the new light of
the present. It preaches oppression and
war, resistance to lawful authority, exten
sion of the one-man power, and, where it
rules, there is an end to freedom of speech
and material prosperity. It promises to
rebuild froui the old Irairments and ruins
of slavery another structure, likewise built
on oppression and inequality ; that is to
say, on sand. .No wonder that the large
majority of the people of the United States
repose confidence in a party which lays
more solid foundations tor the political
structure which it is erecting. Maine and
Vermont show increased llcpublican ma
jorities, and these increased majorities sim
ply mean that General Grant will be elect
ed President in November."
The iuillvs du l'cuiile, another journai
no less sanguine of the victory of the lie
publican party, pursues a similar strain of
reasoning, irom which it is apparent that
the cause of freedom and justice is thor
oughly understood and appreciated by lib
eral minded Europeans of all classes.

?IIon.E. B. Washburne, Chairman off
the Committee of Appropriations, author
izes the punlication of a statement exhib
iting the revenue receipts of the National
Treasury for the current fiscal yeaV, which
will allay any misapprehension created by
the mis-statements of designing-person j
in tne pay ot the Democratic party. Jb rom
thi statement, we learn that instead of a
deficiency, there will be a surplus in the
Treasury at tne end of the current year.
The first quarter of the fiscal year 1868-9
closed on the last day of September. The
Aourcea of revenue to the Treasury are
three, namely: customs, internal revenue
and miscellaneous. These in their re
spective order exhibit the following
facts : The custom receipts at the port
ot New York from the commencement of
the fiscal year to September 26th, were
33,780,347, gold. To these receipts
must be added one-fourth (less than the
average) for the receipt? of the other ports.
Making due allowances for the fluctua
tions in importations, these figure indi
cate a gold revenue from customs of at
least S170,000,000 for the fiscal year.
The receipts of internal revenue for the
first quarter amounted to S40,6o0,800, in
dicating an average of 13,500,000 per
month. In answer to the assertion that
the revenue has been augmented by re
ceipts from the income tax, it is stated
that the whole amount derived from in
come as but 5,000,000, and that any
deficiency from this source will be more
than made up by the gains on the reve
nue from distilled spirits. Allowing for
the reductions on raw cotton and manu
factured products, exclusive of . spirits,
bfcer, tobacco, patent medicines and play
ing cards, the receipts will continue sub
stantially as in 18067. The sum of 4,
350,000 is now in transit to close up the
receipts of the fiscal quarter, making a total
of 45,000,000. Prom these figures we
are enabled to estimate the receipts of the
fiscal year from internal revenues at
one hundred and eljhty million dollars.
The total receipts under the head of mis
cellaneous for the last fiscal year were o0,-
185,910. With the exception of the re
ceipts from direct tax (which amounted
to but 1,788,149) the revenue accruing
ur.der this head will bo fully as large the
present as last year. Thus we will have
from customs 165,000,000 at the lowest
estimate, from internal revenue 160, 000,
000, miscellaneous 45,000,000; total
The expenditure for -the lat fi-cal year,
including interest on the public debt,
amounted to 370,339,073. With the ex
ception of 7,200,000 paid for Alaska, a
probable increase in the pension expend
iture of 2,300,000, and an estimated post
office deficiency of 500,000, there is no
leason to suppose that the expenditures
of the current year will exceed those of
the preceding year. The amount paid lor
interest on the public debt for the fi-cal
year 1867-8 was 140,423,9S5, part of
which was the accumulated interest on the
"compound interest notes." The legiti
mate interest for the current year will ap
proximate 126,000,000.
The debts paid for war expenditures du
ring the last fiscal year were 10,330,158.
3"'xpeu'litures ot Freedrueu'a bureau were
3,215,999. The difference in approprin
tions for rivers and harbors between the
preceding and current year shows a gain
ot 4,632,120, which added to the rapid
reduction in the army, navy and treasury

J&- Intimate friends of Chief-Justice Chase
say that he has recently spoken very freely
