THE POLITICAL OUTLOOK.
From all that we.can gather on the
subject it seems that President
Grast will seeii a third tmn.-- The
success that has atlende the Radi
cals in the late elections tH:ia turned
his head. After the sweeping maj
orities last year Nii many v of the
States, resulting in the election of a
large majority of the members of the
present Congress by the Democratic
party, it did seem that the career of.
for a third term had been blasted. So
well understood waV it, that many of
the State -ConTentions-of the Sepnb--
tiean party,- seeing that nothing but
defeat awaited them if they favored
a third term, by formal resolutions
sboke but ssainst it 1 But the un
fortunate defeat of the Democrats in
Ohio and Pennsylvania this fall has
given ; boldness to the . Radical lead
ers, and General Grant lakeg all the
credhto himself and thinks he will
have-an easy vis tory, and is now se
cretly working for his own success-
ion and the position for a third time.
Most men think one term should be
ehough,'"'b'ut two certainly ought to
be the limit. The father of his coun
try - the immortal Washington, wag
ctntent w.itu one term, and under no
circumstances would he have inori
than two terms. v This wise 'example-
has been iu the past, respected by
those who have been fortunate
enough to reacn tne asa omce 01
President of the Republic, and the
people' -of this" country - have bee
brought up with the idea that two
terms wot .the utmost limit for any
one tb eerve. W :th the example of
the ' great 1 shd ' good then, of every
shade of political opinion,-who. have
reached the position alt pointing the
same way,' withthe general expres
sion of public opinion for oyer ninety
years by men of all parties, sustain
irig-the view that two terms shall be
the limit,, it seems1 to us 'that even
General Grant with all hia former
popularity,' w-ill find that to reach an
other is not p'ossible, even if he does
try to .'.'fight it put on this fine if it
takes all summer," and for once he
will fail. We say this because we
believe in the people of this country.
We .believe in ;the.- strong common
sense and honesty of the people of
the United States. WebelieVe that
all the Democratic party h'aa to Ad
is. to select," gqod men and, true
bear the standard,.. And, when .the,
time comes, that the Democratic par
ty, arrayed in the coming" contest on
the side "of 'Constitutional liberty,
with good men to 'uphold the stand
ard of right, against all the corrup
tions and rascalities that hare come
to be so common in the long lease
power held by General Grant and his
party, .with the memory, of Credit
Mob.iliers, Whisky Rings, and other
bbery that hang around its past
history, the people, Republicans
well as Democrats, will express their
disapprobation, at the polls, saying
to even ' General ' Grant, '.'Thus far
shalt thou go but no farther". ' We
believe from the bottom of pur soul,
that the people of this Country' are
tired of the administration "of Gen
ei al Grant; they" are. tired of his te.
nacity' . of purpose in keeping . bad
men in office; in his appointment.
the .members-of his family to office,
and keeping them there to the dis
rhonor' of ur land; to this - arrogant
demand that he ' shall be honored
above Washington in having a third
term., : We believe that hosts of Re
publicans will not vote for him, when
the time cf trial comes, and we hon
or them for it The" good cf the coun
try is above party ties; above pan-
derins to the ambition of one man.
We believe that General Grant can
and will secure bis own romination.
To do this he will if needful so to
bend every energy of mind and soul.
H& ia not the man, to back out when
he- haamade up bis mind. . But
our opinion the fourth, of Marcfl 187?
will , see hini depart from the White
House iiever again to enter it as Pre
sident," and many'' an independent'
voter how acting with the" Republi;
can "party and all good Democrats
will say amen. ,. In the coming con
test then, it will be Grant aud
ofllc'e holders,, the very embodiment
of- selfishness, on the one side;
the'othe'r all of every shade of polit
ical opinion. The power of the peo
ple determined tp fix a limit to offi
cial terms on one hand; Grant and
his brothers in-laws on . the -other..
In such1 a contest Grant and crew
mnst go to the wail.
; The dismissal of Henderson
the President, as the prosecutor
the St. Louis whisky cases, looks
rather fishy on the part of Mr. Grant,
and his pretence that it was because1
of some personal remarks reflecting
upon him, is a very hollow one.
wouhded bird is sure to flutter,
the truth of the whole matter is plain
that Henderson was getting too
oa the trail, and . Grant became
alarmed for his own' safety. The
