Some of the Northern Radical papers
have already raited this cry, and there is
no disputing the fact tbat the majority
of the Stalwarts are even this early in
favor of Grant's nomination tor the
Presidency iu 1880. The oppotiiiou of
both parties in 187C lo a third term,
they argue, will cot ha felt then, as it
has been demonstrated that Grant can
step down aud out as easily as any
body else when the people desire It.
Many of the Northern Radicals think
that Grant is the only man who can
save their party from certain defeat.
So influential and widely circulated
journal as the St. Louis Globe-Dcmo
crat is now advocating this norniua
lion. That journal argues that the si
mon-pure Republican pari; has already
repudiated Hayes, ami that a bold
tru-tv leader like Grant is tho need of
the party. It freely acknowledges ihat
Grant baa committed error?, but says
that a balance sheet of his public career
will show triumphantly in his favor.
This desire for Grant is born of a feel
lug of desperation in the Radical party
They cry out for Grant because Ihey
think be is stronger than his
party. That is so, but nearly
any dectut sort of a mail
stronger than a party thai has killed
Itself by constantly arraj iug one sec
tion of tbo Uuiou against the other.
Judge Davis, of Illinois, is much strong'
cr than the Radical party, aud there
are many other;. The troublo with the
Radical party is patent to all wbo are
not blinded by their filse notions of
the South. Tbat party has attempted
to carry too much weight down this
way, aud it will uot learn by cxperi

hardly perceptible. Iu his appoint'
incuts lie sticks to men who have no
Irength, and who can never have auy
in this section of the country. Look
at his Louisiana appointments. They
have weakened him and his party very
much, because the appointees are not
tho sort of men tho white people of
that State want. It is in this, that tbc
Radicals have failed aud will fail to the
end. They seek for power and iu
fluence, where there is no power and
influenco to be had. Tho day cfiiegrc,
scallawag and carpet-bag influence in
this section of tho Union has pasted.
If the Republican party ever
expects to build up power iu I he
South, it must cease its war on the
Southern people and prove that fact by
making a clean sweep of the old f ig-
ends, and by boldly bidding for support
amoug white men of standing and in
fluence. The mean refusal of the
Senate to admit the Louistaua aud
South Carolina Senators has intensified
the determination of tho Democratic
party of this sec'.lou to give blow for
blow until we have conquered a peace
We arc demanding nothing but justice,
and unless the Radical party change
its hostility toward us, Grant will be
as powerless i:i 1SS0 as any other iiiau
to save it from a crusbiug defeat. Ia a

The Boston Globe reports the sub
stance of an address delivered at Fan

the following significant passage;

The addrc-s was made to Democrats
assembled to ratify the nominations
made at the Worcester Stato Conven
tion, but many passages were as well
tinea lor intelligent Republicans as for
liberal Democrats. The passage quoted
conveys a sentiment wormy or any
occasion, anu it may be taken as repre
senting the feeling toward tbe Presl
dent which is '.entertained not only
among Kentuckians but among tbc
wiiitc people or tbo South In general
wbo l ave reflected on the subject.
Without forgetting the crooked ways
wutch resulted in tbo Installation of
Mr. Hayes, tbey find him upholdiug
tncir constitutional rights, anu tuey
will, therefore, give him their moral
support. In his recognition of the
true btale Uovcrumcnts of Louisiana
and South Carolina, and In his early
withdrawal of troops from thecapitols,
accompanied by emphatic and eloquent
declarations of pacific and frieudly
purposes for tbe future, the people of
the South recognize a broad, liberal
and truly American manliness which
merits and must continue to receive
their respect and approval..
In an article wbicb appeared in tbe
New Orleans Times, of October 11th,
headed "Affairs iu Mississippi," the
following appear, relcrring to out
rages alleged to have been committed
in I'ikc county :

Fashion is a desDOt. but even fashion
may be made to yield to higher author
ity sometimes ; there are laws above
aespots, nere as elsewhere. In Lelpslc,
for example, fashion decrees tbe wear
ing of trained gowns in the street, bnt
the police authorities decree otherwise,
and it seems lo bo more than probable
tbat tbe police authorities will get tbe
best of the dispute.
roucemen are ordered to arrest all
wearers of trains, and police magis
trates or whatever tho dispensers of
remeuiai justice Jn small quantities
may be called in Leipeic impose fines
upon tbe offenders. This is very sim
ple and direct, and it will prove to be
very euecuvo also, probably. It Is
much simpler and more direct than any
attempt at dress reform in this country
has ever been, perhaps because It is a
woman s aress rciorm conducted by
men. Tbe ladies wbo annually or ol-
toner meet in convention In this coun
try to decry the clothes tbat tbey wear,
getting themselves up, in gorgeous
array, to make speeches against gor
geous array, may perhaps eet a hint
from tho masculine dress-reformers of
Leipsic. Tbe advocates of patent hy
gienic under-clothing have done all
tbat mortal women can do to get other
women to wear sanitarily constructed
garments, and they have dono it in
vain. Dr. Mary Walker's trousers
have failed utterly as a persuasive and
contagious example of what women's
dress ought to be, as Mrs. Bloomers
rattier pretty costume did before Dr,
Alary walker was In ber teens. Per
suasion, remonstrance and lectures up
on hygiene have utterly failod to
awaken American women to a proper
sense of their right to dress themselves
unbecomingly, and failing here they
have failed also to pcrsuado women to
abandon tbe really objectionable prac
(Ice of wearine long dresses iu the
streets. In a word, women have failed
to secure anything like dress reform
and it may not be unfair to suggest to
them tbe propriety or submitting them
selves to men in tho matter, commit
ting to masculine hands the duty which
feminine hands are unaolo to sccom
piish.
It is true that men will not work any
radical reforms In such a matter, be
cause we may as well admit it men
are dreadfully afraid tbat women, if
permitted to wear masculine garments,
will absorb to themselves sll profitable
industries and set men to keeping
house. We tremble for our supremacy
but icalous as we are of our preroga
tive there are points in womon's dress
which men would gladly alter, and
chief among them is the train, so far at
least as street dresses are concerned.
Peter tbe Great, who stationed a tailor
at every city gale witb orders to cut off
every ltuttian long coat until its skirt
snouia not reaon me ground wnen its
wearer knelt, was a model masculine
dress reformer, and bis objection to
long garments was not stronger than is
tbe prevalent objection of men to wo
men's trains in public places, ii men
can be persuaded to tako tbe matter in
band, at they have done in Leipsic, dress
reform will be secured speedily, out it
will be moderate dress reform, coniincd
strictly within limits which shall still
leave men masters aud women slaves.

bo will be sure to tear tne nrst teai
with my autograph out of it." This Is
a tale much too biting to be true.
