The inconsistency of General Grant
becomes more apparent every day. Ho
sends a message to congress heartily
innlnrsiiiL' civil service reform, and
nskiny; the assistance of that body
in carrying out the plan
proposed. At the same time
every friend of the administration
opposes reform and inquiry of every
sort. He recommends amnesty to con
gress but bis advisers and supporters
fail to carry out his recommendations.
This incongruity is singular, but per
haps Grant's friends could, if thoy
would, explain it with more satis
faction to the public than to the
Phksident Grant should pray to
lie delivered from his friends. The
character of such men ns Morton,
Conklinjr, Chandler, etc., give their
pra'wc of the honesty of tho ridininstra
tion no weight with the people and
the entire radical press is now engaged
in apologizing to the public for tho
unfortunate position General Grant is
placed in though being endorsed
wholly by men who the people believe
are unworthy of public confidence. On
the whole, tho situation is rather a
damaging one to the president. Tho
aversion of his friends who arc none of
them above suspicion, to having the
affairs of the government investigated,
bears on its face the look of conscious
fear, and the matter is not improved
any by the excuses offorred by admin
i-intfon papers for Grant's unpleasant
predicament, and their imieiidne- at
tho character of his advUers.

who seems to have a lovo of music, one of
tho crowd started "he-rfO talk.'' That al
ways wakens up tho ndminstration, and he
setoff on a canter in that direction. At
hut his daughter, putting her hand on his
shoulder, said : " l'n, l'arcpn Kosa Is i;o

paid no attention to this, but wont on with
thu talk. Tho little girl again interrupted

An intelligent French traveller In Per
sia, M. Armlniees Vninhcry, says if tho
famine should continue throughout tho
winter, u revolution followed by a chnngo
of rulers would bo irresistible. This fnm
ino is In a largo degree traceable to tlio
Jtriti.h cotton supply association, nldcd by
lirltisli power nnd dipiomucy, to build up
n n citcuded cotton culture in Persia ns u
rival lo our own American product.
There uro no railroads in Persia, and their
common roads ore mere unimproved paths,
trodden by beasts of burden, carts boing
almo.t unknown, so that as agriculture is
in a primitive condition and tho want of
water so grout that tho llelds have to bo
irrigated by subterranean canals running
across tho country for miles, it will bo
seen how little chance there is for roliof in
case of n failure of tho crops. To render
tho cotton culture snfe, it would bo necos
sary for tho government to establish ronds
by which food could bo transported to tho
cotton districts. Hut this wns neglected,
nnd tho dearth of provisions has Increased

was not much dillerent from tho famlnoin
