Secuktauy Sherman cmnmendftl Judge
Bradley's son to Gen. Arthur, for a place in
tin? New York custom house, in the wann
est terms, rind concluded by telling den.
Arthur that young Bradley "should be
appointed for manifest reasons," The rea
sons were manifest to Arthur, to Sherman
and to every other Republican who was be
hind the scenes of the 7 to 8 drama.
Judga Bradley hail seared his soul by
committing a great wrong; by outraging
justice aud by defeating the popular will
that Republican ascendancy might be
maintained, and he thus rendered it "mani
lest'' why his son should share the fruits of
his fraud and infamy.
The old North Carolina curmudgeon who,
'some two or three years ago, predicted that
during the reigu of Rutherford tho world
would be afllicted with pestilence and fam
ino, is living to see a verification of his pre
diction. A portion of China has already
been devasted by a most fearful famine.
Cholera again threatens to ravage the Le
vant; tho black plague is devastating Russia
t and Astruehan, the small pox is raging fear
fully in Brazil; and our own country, just
from under the scourge of yellow fever,
stands in the peril of a like ufuirtion next
summer. In view of the mere chance that
we are to be subjected again to such alarm
and suffering, who is content with the pro
vision suggested for protection? We may
have no need for tho enforcement of pre
cautionary measures; but to be without
such measures altogether, is not a comfort
ing reflection, to say the least of it.
A principle-was involved in the Hayes
Conkling contest over the New York nomi
nations, that rendered the fight of national
consequence. Conkling assumed the right,
because of his position as senator, to name
i the men who bhould till the federal ofliccs
of New York, lie refused to consent to
Presidential interference, cither in the
shape ot suggestion fir advice, claiming
"exclusive jurisdiction'' over all matters of
that nature, even covering the right to
retain his appointees during the term of his
individual pleasure. Of course we felt no
sympathy for the President as the head of
a Republican administration, for we knew
that he was impelled by resentment in try
ing to effect a change in the New York
custom house, and not honestly endeavor
ing to enforce his civil service reform policy,
In that view of the matter our sympathies
were for Conkling; but as a contest to de
cide the application or non-application of
the principle involved, our sympathies were
with the President; and tho matter was de
cided, in our opinion, precisely as it should
have been decided.
Olivk Looax, cousin to the General, is
determined to keep herself before the pub
lic. Failing to command compliments, in
satisfactory abundance, she 1ms concluded
to invite ridicule. Hence she writes to a
New York paper that the duchesses, march
ionesses, countesses and other noble ladies
with whom she is in correspondence, are
shocking orthographist, and equally faulty
grammarians. The Scientific American is
credited with a criticism it never made, to
the effect that bad orthography and worse
grammar form u fault with the noble lords
w well as the uoblo ladies. "You should
'; just w!, Olive," continues the satirist,
' "some of tho bungling punctuation In the
letters we receive from the Emperor Wil
liam. It's terrible, And a recent missive

rlan. Aud tho Prince of Wales! His
spelling is awful! Ho puts it "hour" in
labor; and even Bismark uses capitals with
a freedom that is appalling. We've often
joked old "Bis" about his liberal use of cap
itals, seeing as how they don't belong to
him; buMiis fault stands uncorrected. In
the very last letter we received from "Beck"
(wo refer, of course, to our friend Beacons
field) he spelled America with a k, and
what is more to his discredit, he unspoiled
our own name. Of all our noble corres
pondents, tho Empress Eugenia' is the most
elegant, but even she is not entirely free
from the faults that so annoy Miss Logan.
Really, wo arc inclined, on this account
solely, to cut 'em all off from our list of
correspondents every single one of 'em."
EXULTANT OVER THE TRIUMPH OF
If the prominent Republicans who engi
neered the Louisiana and Florida electo
ral villainies should become conscience
smitten and tell all they know, the civilized
world would be shocked by the infamy of
tho proceeding. They knew, before mak
ing a move in the matter, that the Demo
cratic electors in those States had been
chosen by a clear and very decided ma
jority of the legal voters, and until the arch
couspirator of the gang, Zachariah Chand
ler, fulminated his brazen falsehood that the
Republican electors had been chosen, no
honest man in the United States denied
Tilden's triumphant election. During an
interval of two days, during which Demo
crats were tiring cannon and rejoicing over
their victory, no Republican even dreamCd
of questioning their right to jubilate. In
the face of all this, one Mr. Townsend, of
New York, has the audacity to arise in his
place in Congress, and sneeringiy declare
that "It is a tremendous fraud, indeed, that
the people of the United States refused to
elect the sage of Grammercy park to the
presidency of the United States." This
man Townsend knows that the people of
the United States did elect the sage of
Grammercy park by the overwhelming my
jority of over two hundred thousand votes.
He knows that had the Democrats dis
carded every vote that constituted their ma
jorities in the States that had been in rebell
ion, that, even in that event, Hayes
would have stood repudiated by the
people, and Tilden as elected. Two hun
dred thousand men form a vast and a for
midable army more men than fought at
Antietam or in the Wilderness a larger
number than the entire voting population
of an average sized State, yet no larger
than the tremendous majority received by
Tildcn and Hendricks. But this fact is
shamelessly ignored by Republican leaders
by men like Townsend who unblushing
ly repeat the exasperating falsehood that
the sage of Grammercy was repudiated by
the people. Heaven save us from a repe
tition of the affair of the winter of '70 !
The country was brought to the very verge
of a merciless civil war by it, and another
time tho people will maintain their rights,
come war, come commotion, come what
CHEAP AND HYl'OCUITICAL SYM
PATHY. A number of our Republican exchanges
avow a deep interest in the venerable Gen
eral Shields, and think the Democrats have
treated him shamefully-have insulted
him, in fact, by giving a 40 days' senator
ship, and witholding from him, and be
stowing upon a rebel Colonel, a six years'
seuutordiip. Of course all expressions of
interest or indignation from that quarter
arc the sheerest hypocrisy. For many
years General Shields was in indigent cir
cumstances. He was poor, almost penni
less, when he knocked at the door of the
Republican House ot congress for admission
as a member, He had done most accepta
ble service in the Union army, and was one
of the few Brigadiers that left the service a
poor man. He came to congress from
Missouri, backed by a majority of nearly
eight thousands votes; but by a partisan
vote that was almost unanimous, the Re
publican clement decided that ho should
not fill tho seat to which he had been so
triumphantly elected, nor bo refunded the
money it had cost him to come to Washing
ton. About a year ago a Republican member
of the present congress put Gen. Shields hi
nomination for the position of doorkeeper
a place the old man didn't want, and
couldn't have filled had he been elected to
it. Because tho Democrats didn't do what
the Republicans were never known to do,
viz: abandon their party nominee and vote
for the nominee of the opposition, there was
a Republican howl from one end of the
land to tho other, that Democrats in
Congress had elected a rebel Brigadier
over a veteran Union General! But hero
Republ ican efforts to help the old man
ceased. They offered him a placo which it
was not in their power to give, and they
knew very well when they nominated him
that Democrats would not, at Republican
bidding, abandon their caucus nominee,
Immediately ai'terwanU tho sincerity of
these same Republicans was put to the
test. The Democratic House, by an almost
THE DAILY CAIRO BULLETIN;
strict party vote, adopted - a resolution
placing Ccnerul Shields on tho retired army
list, with the rank of Brigadier. The in
come would have mndo tho old man com
furtublo the balance of his days; but tho
moment the resolution reached tho Senate,
Republican Edmunds, of Vermont, tried to
dispose of it by referring it to tho Judic
iary Committee, knowing very well that
once committed it would never again see
tho light of day. This motion the Demo
crats fought, and by the aid of a few Re
publican votes, defeated. But determined
to kill tho resolution in some manner, Re
publican Sargeaut, of California, moved uu
amendment to the effect that tho provisions
of the resolution should also extend to Gen-
cralsGrant, Logan, Schurz, Clny,Washburnc,
Prentiss, Palmer and all the other volunteer
Generals ho could call to mind, numbering
something over thirty. This amendment
had no other purpose than to render the
original resolution ridiculous, yet the Re
publican Senate adopted it. When,
finally, the resolution as amended,
was put upon its passage, it was,
of course, defeated. And thus, when
put to an honest test, did th! Republican
clement of Congress, display its sympathy
and solicitude for the helpless and impecu
nious General Shields. But Democratic ef
fort didn't stop there. A resolution was
introduced in the House, giving the old
man a pension of two thousand dollars a
year. This resolution was violently as
sailed by the Republican side, und the
amount was finally cut down to one hun
dred dollars a month. In this shape the
resolution passed; but upon reaching- the
Senate an effort was made by several Re
publicans to reduce the sum to fifty dollars.
This effort was stoutly resisted by Demo
crats, and with the aid of nine Republican
Senators, the Democrats pensioned the old
man off on one hundred dollars a mouth.
If, in the composition of Republican hu
man nature, there is such an ingredient as
shame, this histroy the manner in which
the Republican party has dealt with the
veteran General Shields should forever
close tho mouthsof Republican orators when
they attempt to speak, and paralyze the
hands of Republican writers when they at
tempt to write, about Democratic ill treat
ment of the "hero of two wars and the
Senator of three States."
