The Springfield Kfpullioan htw It that the rrmldeut could be bronght to friendly terms with the Senate bnt for Mr. EVABTs, who Is a Itoa la the path of pacification, We few that the President has ha little lnfla toco with his Cabinet u Mr. LINCOLN at no time thought he had with his. Gen. Grant was always master of tho situa tion. TitkSL Louis GtobeDfMOcrat mjit,CoxK' txxa will probably be remembered In two r three years from now as the man whose firmans saved the Republican party in n most dangerons crisis, and, Instead of find ing ourselves without a candidate, we will kave two most excellent candidates to choose from the on a civilian, the other with a military reputation added to his civil laurels." The BaflhJo Express seems to think that there was much greater virtue in the lact that a man lent the Government greenback money during the wax and took therefor gold-bearing bonds than for a man take bis life In hli hand and go to the front and fight for the Union. Vo judge so from the fjact that It weeps bitter tears over the poor, wronged and suffering bond-holders, while It has very little to say In behalf of the boy In bine, though he may be Buefng the Gov ernment for his bounty-money or the loss of his horse. ClirUtmasj Clftis. Ths( day closes the season of purchases for Christmas, and many a head and jranw will retire to-night greatly relieved on this Important subject. If it were our province to educate our readers on the mat ter of their purchases for smalljand great, as all will no doubt have stockings pendant this night for the reception of gifts of all sorts, we would say by way of suggestion, study utility, beauty, adaptation, secrcsy, Bwrpiiacs, and last, though not the least consideration cost. The stores are groan ing under their holiday stocks of useful, beautiful, and appropriate articles, which axe displayed la tempting profusion; the streets are full of gay promenaders, who are bound to see what Is to be seen, and pur chase what they can, though they may not be able to encompass the full fmeos nre of their desires, for to tell the simple, candid truth, while the spirit and desire ore strong in most cases . the parse is weak. The charms and en joyments of a Christmas season are greatly abridged by the financial policy of the Government Just now, la more nrjwia of "&e Departments the pay-day has not been set so as to respond gratefully to the wishes and necessities of purchasers. "Without any apparent regard for Santa Clacs or him traditional custom of loading up for Christmas eve, payment to many of the employees of the Government has been postponed until a period when the old man, lad in fur with his coveted treasures, will have pawed by for a whole year. This is too bad, iorlt will bring a lean Christmas to many a home, and leave goods Upon the shelves of many expectant and anxious merchant. This Is another feature of gov ernmental policy with which we are not in sympathy. In view of this state of affairs purthottes must be suspended or mode with painful care and parsimony. Much of the joy of Christ mas will bo foregone for the want of money due on debts owed by the Government to Jts servants, and which heretofore has been forthcoming at this special period to swell the happiness of the occasion Hut times are hard, and the ex ecutors of the Government are doing Httje to sol ten them, and the dear people must squeeze through as they best can. Itnt to return to our suggestion about purtlmw.8 under the prevailing system of domestic freeiihwonry the articles most needul are tho which will be most appre ciated. Glomes, cops, handkerchiefs and collars arc always in order and accepta ble to the t recipients of Christ mas gilts. Then there are jewelry sets, hut, rings, opera-glass st writing materials, stationery, pocket books, nil of which are re garded us utilities. 1 toots are always legal tender; ami there are plenty of them of ex cellent character. Ken your pastor would not look askance at you if he should find u set of encjiloptdia crowded as fur as they would go Into his stocking. A book well eclcctcd Is n treasure The gler is long re membered. Itutvupid literature should be kept from children, for VJust ni tha twig Is bent, the tree is Inclined." It id as Injuri ous to the mind as impure and pernicious candy is to the h 11 nun constitution. In conclusion, we would say to those who give Christmas offerings seek to make them valuable by their utility and health fulnetui to either mind or body, as they may be ap plied. A Desprruto JHwraiNQ Requires lreriite I torn r dirt. The country it ill. Its business interests Are in a typhoid state, and rapidly sinking. Enterprise is without inspiration. It ii either dead or dormant. Trade is stagnant and brings do adequate: return to Imest meut and effort Manufactures are de pressed, sickly, and dying. There is no en onragement to the Ibrge, the -blast, the jilndle. or the loom. Everything every -in , j :'. . 1 . where In die land la ithe war of business andenferpris-jlangalshes ibf ths'wanVof sustenance, isw 11 tt is to no even at uncom pensating return. Pin three years the Tal lies of property have been shrunken 'and shriveled until they have fallen fifty per cent, and more In very many instances, within the period named. This, in brief, Is the picture now presented by the mechanic, the mercantile, and the manufacturing in terests of the country all In a low, typhoid state, without the symptoms even of a rally. It is not worth while now to discuss the causes that have led to this disastrous condition of affairs It is r remedy that Is needed, and under a disagreement of doc tors one may not easily be found. Waiting for resumption, at a given time, with a largo contraction of the currency and the con stant hoarding of gold for that purpose, and with surer demonetized, will never relieve the business interests of the country, for these may be regarded as among the causes of this general depression. Matters will only grow worse instead of better under the present line of preparation for resump tion. While w have disagreed with the Presi dent on some of his measures, we will not consent to abandon all hope that he will yet retrieve his mistakes and return to a wise sense of dnty relating to the futnre. He has tt within his sower to save himself and tho business interests of the country by a new financial departure, while if he par- sues his present policy, nothing better than future augmenting disaster can be looked for or hoped for. It may cost him some sacrifice of pride of opinion and position, but he most lift his eyes from the gold rings and money centres and extend bis vision so as to take in and understand the business interests of the people at largo of every class throughout the entire por tions of this great country. Then he will Terr soon begin to see things more clearly, and trace the path of duty more distinctly. After taking a wider and more generous view of the situation, the President will, we trust, discover that he should at once pre pare a message to Congress which should be laid before it on its reassembling after the holidays. That document should pre sent a true reflex of the business situation of the country East, West, North, and South. That picture should be attended with recommendations to Congress that it parts a law making gold, sliver, and green backs a legal-tender for all debts hereafter to become due to the Government or individuals, except In such cases as where there are sped So contracts for payment In gold. If this is done the country may bo saved from utter bankruptcy and ruin, but not under any existing policy of finance. We shall go steadily from bad to worse, until hope will be lost, and the country will become a general wreck, unless a speedy change comes over the face of affairs. The present tendency Is to make the poor poorer and tho rich richer. This proposition may be rather crude, but, properly moulded and guarded, It will contain the true panacea for the disease that Is preying upon and prostrating the business Interests of the country. Something is due to the laboring masses at this time. This Is the President's opportunity to re trieve himself and the country, and if he neglects it untold evils await the business of the nation, and accumulate! distrust will fall upon his own head. Thisis the ques tion of the hour. All others fall into com parative insignificance beside It In Xut-Hhcll. The Chicago Tnbune sums np the silver question very tersely and forcibly when it says: If silver bad never been monetized In this or any other country If the propo sition was now to introduce as money a mstal hitherto unknown to the world, and which bad never been employeu ZZ !onaT speculations as to the effect of such a pro ceeding might be extended indefinitely ; but no such question Is now presented. Silver as money Is as old as history. Silver has been demonetized but a few years. It hod been legal coin from the first foundation of the Government to 1873, and had during all that time, and for two years after, com manded a premium in gold. For a century prior to 1873 silver had maintained a supe riority to goid, to the extent that, computed at the weight of pure silver In the American dollar, the silver coin was worth more than the cold one. The decline. In value of silver Is due to Its demonetization by Germany and the extraordinary demand for (300,- 000,000 of gold by that country. The cause is temporary: and, when the cause has ceasod to exist, silver will be restored to its ordinary value In gold, if this country re: monetizes It" A Modern Ilimiby. Here is "un opinion as la an opinion." Some chap has furnished the Philadelphia Press with the follqwlng exposition of con stitutional law, which Is so remarkable irt its deductions and conclusions tb.it we arc inclined to spread the folly of Its author, who takes care to conceal his real name, bo fore the readers of the National ItErcn lican: 7b f he Editor of the IttM : 8ib : "Gen.

The provision of the Constitution which creates his Ineligibility reads thus! "No iwrson, except a natural-born citizen, or a citizen of the United States, at the time of the adoption of this Con stitution, shnll be eligible to the office of Presi dent; neither shall any person be eligible to that othcu ho shall not havu attained to the sko of thirty-five uxs, gad been fourteen yearn rtvUfemt vithin the Untied ftatea.'r In the firbt and hut provisions of thla clause the frame rs of the Constitution Bay, In tUlct; "It would be daiik'eruis to Intnut tho Powers. which wo prnpoio to vest In the President of tho united Plates, in mo nsuus or a person likely to be Imbued with monarchical prliicl plrs.'1 'lbe Supreme Court of tboUntUil Rtates has denned, to Mane extent, the application of this constitutional Inhibition.

So mote It bo. II. S. l. PuiLADKLTilIA, Pa. Dec. 13, 1877. This wonderful legal opinion has been furnished us In slip by a gentleman in the Quaker city, who characterizes It as "0 mat ter of great nubile importance." We regard It as a superlative pieco of Innate foolish ness, which has no importance beyond the fact that It Incontinently excites a smile of derision. It Is simply preposterous that Gen. Grant or any other Amtrican citizen censes to be a citizen or a resident of the United States when h takes his family for a trip to Europe or anywhere else in tho world for pleasure or Improvement, with the Intention of returning, be the term of his absence longer or shorter. The proposi tion of this Insane scribbler defeats Itself by Its own absurdity. That cat will not fight Practical llcfbrm The New York Uwea furnishes the fol lowing Illustration of ctvll-fcrvloe reform as practiced by the present Administration. Comment would be superfluous: There Is In the elty of Broeklyn a consider able number ef Republicans, mostly business men, who have boen warm adherents of the President becauso they were heartllr con vinced ef the soundness of tho principles which hebM profejccd regarding a reform of theelvll service. They have clung to him through good report aud evil report, have eagerly cred ited htm with every act that afforded evidence of bis Intelligence and sincerity, and charita bly overlooked whatever seemed to tellsgalnst him. This section of the party has been fairly represented In Congress by Hon. Mr. Cbittkh- DKN,ortne mini uistrict, wuo, more con sistently than anr other member of the New York delegation, has faithfully respected the principles of reform laid down by the President and has held himself entirely apart tYom all efforts to oppose him with the old methods of distributing patronage. The postmaster of Brooklyn, whose position is an important ana resnoosiDie one, nas proven himself extremely competent and as hfs term drew to a clove the. Republicans to whom we have alluded very reasonably regarded his re tention as required by the rules which the President had defined for himself In such matters, and Mr. Cuittxitcen was requested to lay their views before the proper member of the Administration. On Inquiry at the De partment, that gentleman learned that the poatmaaUr's reoord was exceptionally good, that the Department could conceive of no reason for a change, that a reappointment would be recommended, and was entirely cer tain to be granted. This statement of the coso was rcDcated a few (lavs before the ad journment of Congress, with the addition that tne reappointment naa Deen recommenacu. Rat at the last moment on the Friday before adjournment, another appointment was made. A'ETT rVVLJCATlOA'S. THE AMERICAN AIM OF THE PERIOD. By CURAT UA1HI3 J. It. UPPtnCOtt & On.

Of these ninety-three came from the Booth, as against fifty-nine from the loyal North. Of the ninety-three from the South forty-four served In the Oonfoderate army and eleven others served the Confederacy In a civilian eapaoity. It Is very clear therefore that the one hundred aud forty-one Republicans In ths Honso represent the loyal sentiment ef the country. And yet ths Democratic party claims to be, pat excellence, the party of patriot- Ism and the Constitution. Nomina has more disturbed the Democracy than the recent announcement that Senators Conkuhu and Blaine have burled -their dif ferences, and with a view doubtless of stirring up unpleasant recollections they aredlggtngout and repnbllshlng the speeches of twelve years ago and ths circumstances which led to the differences. The two dlstlagulshsd Senators no doubt had a full and complete recollection of what then transpired, and they are not likely to be Influenced now by any publica tion. The Democrats hoped to reap advantage from what they supposed the Irreconcilable differences of theee gentlemen. The recon ciliation has been a most sod disappointment Hence these tears.

If the Senator's ssvere Ulucss Is referred to, ths conductor of a live Journal onght t know'as a matter ef fact, that "the electoral count and its results," had no more to do with that Illness than the man In th moon. Mr. Blai.ni's Illness ante dates the Electoral Commission by many months. When he was taken ill such a thing an Electoral Commission was not even dreamed of.
