The Philadelphia Post figures the House,
Republibans, 54 ; Democrats, 46. Senate, Re
publicans, 20 ; Democrats, 13.
The Post's special says, the President author
ized tho publication of the following statement:
"Whoever shall be appointed Secretary of
War will be appointed outright, rice Stanton
removed, the President holding the Tenure
Office bill unconstitutional, in which opinion
Stanton concurred, himself preparing a por
tion of the veto message denying the power ot
Congress to pa a such an act by which the re
moval of Stanton was adopted." The Presi
dent will simply send a message nominating his
successor, and should the Senate reject the
nomination and endeavor to reinstate Stanton,
the latter will be compelled to seek a legal
remedy by a mandamus being served. The
question of the constitutionality of the Tenure
Office bill is before the Supreme Court. The
suspension of Stanton was adopted—the first
instance out of abundant caution, in order to
bring the act within the terras of the Tenure
Office hill, but the Puesident from the first in
tended to make the removal absolute.
The Times' special 6ays, several influential
Democrats are urging the President in more
direct accord with the Democrats, who alone
can sustain him, annd suggest almost an entire
change in the Cabinet. While Johnson listens
to these propositions, no positive assurance of
changes are made, except in the War Depart
ment, though he may yield to the pressure and
relieve three or four members before the meet
ing of Congress.
The President has summoned all the Dis

High Tariff. —Senator Grimes has pub
lished a letter in which he reiterates his dec
laration to the Chairman of the State Central
Committee of Iowa, as follows :
*■ In that letter I did express the opinion
which I now reiterate, that when the question
shall be fairly presented to the people of this
State, they will be found overwhelmingly—the
Republican party will be found overwhelmingly
—against an increase of the present tariff, one
which is the highest ever known in a civilized
country. I cannot believe that the intelligent
people of Iowa are quite willing to destroy
their revenue from imports by a prohibitory
tariff, (and that is what the advocates of the
new tariff avowedly sought last Winter,) only
to impose new and additional taxes upon their
own domestic products to supply the defi
Iowa is the strongest Radical State in the
West, being largely settled from Massachu
setts—a circumstance which renders Senator
Grimes' declaration more emphatic.
The Radicals of the West, however, seem
to hate the South so bitterly that, sooner than
act fairly, honorably, aud magnanimously, to
wards that oppressed people, they will allow
New England to impose a most crushing tariff'
and taxation upon them to enrich herself.
A Prediction Verified. —Over forty
years ago, that great and pure statesman, John
C. Calhoun, predicted that, in- case the Aboli
tionists obtained control ol the Government,,
the very condition of things which now nearly
prevail in the South would ensue. His words
were exactly as follows :
"The blacks and the profligate whites that
might unite with them, would become the
principal recipients of the-Federal offices and
patronage, and would in consequence be raised
above the whites of the South in the political
and social scale. We would, in a word, change
conditions with them, a degradation greater
than has yet fallen to the lot of a free and en
lightened people, and one from which we could
not escape,, should emancipation take place
(which it certainly will if not prevented,) but
by fleeing the homes of ourselveR and our an
cestors, and by abandoning our country to our
former slaves, to become the permanent abode
of disorder, anarchy, poverty, misery and
The American Baruere.— Cruelty be
came with him, first a habit, then a passion, at
last a madness. * * *
He tasted blood, and felt no loathing ; tasted
it again and liked it well. * * -
He had brought himself to look upon the de
spair and misery of hi« fellow-creatures with
a glee resembling that of the fiends whom
Dante saw watching the pool of seething pitch.

He had many associates in guilt, but he dis
tinguished himself from them by the bacchan
alian exultation which he seemed to feel iu tho
work of death.
Macauley wrote the above of the atrocious
Barere, of the French revolution. The lan
guage equally well fits Stanton, the chief butch
er of America.
Sour Grapes, —The Sacramento Union
says : "Ger>. Bidwell is making vinegar of his
grapes this year." Likely enough this is be
cause the Radical Convention made sour
grapes of his aspirations for tho Governorship,
and the people soured them 6till more in de
feating his chances for, the U. S. Senate. No
doubt the General'has plenty of vinegar stuff
about him now.
The Leavenworth Commercial of Septem-
ber 29th, thus discusses the suffrage question :
Negro suffrage was rampant last night, on
the corner of Fourth and Cherokee streets, in
the shape of half a dozen dusky brethren and
sistern having a "conversation wid their fists."
And the colored troops fought nobly.
Rich Poverty.— A New York City paper
has the following item :
' Mrs. Abraham Lincoln, owing to the in-
adequacy of her income, has been obliged to
offer for sale some forty-five thousand dollars
worth of jewels and dresses. Mr. M. H. Bra-
dy, No. 609 Broadway, has the articles, for sale.

A characteristic anecdote is related of
aa out-at-tho-efbow poet, who, by some freak
of fortune, came into possession of a five dol
lar bill. He called to a lad and said, "Bobby,
my boy, take William and get him changed."
" What do you mean by calling it William ? "
inquired the wondering Had. "Why, Bobby,"
replied the poet, "I am not sufficiently familiar
with it to take the liberty of calling it Bill.''
A Two-Headed Snake was captured near
Bethlehem, Ky-, a few weeks ago. It was ten
inches in length, and though the h?ads were
distinct, there was but one vetebrae and one
pelvis. There were two eyes in each head,
and each mouth had the same appearance and
size. Sometimes it would dart out one tongue
and then the other, and at times both simulta
neously. The heads each turned from the
body at the same degree, which preveufced the
snake from making much speed in tbo grass,
a3 it would get between its heads.
Some wag. in England hit off the salvage
mania there a few years ago by issuing a pros

tians lost when Pharoah and his host were
overwhelmed by the waters in their pursuit of
the Children of Israel.
