Logan's letter at acceptance of the nomination fyr Vice President is a forcible and explicit exposition of his Vlews on the policy that should be pur sued by the American government. He evidently seize* held of the strong points of tho campaign. aud expresses them in term aud effective terms, not withstanding the slurs frequently made upon the quality of the English lan guage he is charged with using In making these points, however, be assumes some positions so antagonistic fo each other tiiat they compel atten tion. II« ably advocates the system of pro tective duties, and what he considers ohe protection of American labor. In Ids argument he asserts: "If there be a nation on the face of ■tin* earth which might, if it were a de sirable thing, build a wail upon it* every Imundary line and deny communication to all tb« world aud proceed to live on Rs own resources and productions, that tuition is the United Htates. There is hardly a legitimate necessity of civilised communities which cannot be produced from the extraordinary resources of our several States and Territories, with their manu fsotorie*, mines, farms, tlmlwr lands and water ways. Tills circum stance, taken In connection with the fact »hat our form of government is entirely unique among the nations of the world, makes it utterly absurd to institute com parisons lietween our economic systems and those of other governments, aud es |M<cially to attempt to borrow their sys tems from them. We stand alone in our circumstances, our forces, our possibili ties and our aspirations." The illustration is strong; and per haps was drawn from Jefferson's wish that the Atlantic ocean were a sea of Are I, to separate this country from the coun tries on the other side of the Atlantic. It would hardly bear the teat of exami nation at the present days, whatever may have been the fact eighty years ago. That this is true appears to Lo gan's perception when he comes to the point Of our International relations--an other matter which promises to figure largely within the next four mouths. The abovajeatract la ib compatible with the following allusion to South Amer ican affairs "The republics of Spanish America are «Used to u* by the very closest and warmest feelings, lmused upon a simi larity of institution* and government, conunon aspiration* aud mutual hopes. The "Great Republic, as they proudly term the United Htates, la looked upon by the people with affectionate minors Gou. and sa a model for them to build upon, aud we should cultivate between them and oarwlvea cioaer commercial relations, which will bind all together by ties of friendly intercourse and mu tnal advantage. Further than this, be * lug small eommonweclths in a military and naval sense, European Rowers look to us at least as a moral defender against a system of territorial and other en croachments which, aggressive in the past, ha* not been abandoned at Uiis day. Diplomacy and intrigue have done much mort to wrest the commerce of Mpanish America from the United State* 1 bau has legitimate commercial compe tition. Politically, we should be bound to the Republic* of our own continent by the clone*! Um, and communication by sbipa and railroad* should be en ' «Hiuruged to the fullest possible exb-nt eonsliteut with wise and conservative policy. Above all, wn should lie upon *ue!- term* of friendship a* to preclude the possibility of national tuùuuder Staiollugs between ourwobe* and any meiutx-ra of the Amcricau Republican buntin'*. The best method to promote untiltermpted ponce betweeu one and oil would lie in meetiug at a generul conference or congres*, whereby an agreement to subgiit all interinitionul difference* to a peaceful decision by friendly arbitation, might be reached." ' The two extracts hardly bear compar ison: but political ucCessiUe* belong to the higher law, and discrepcnslas of this kind will lie easily reconciled iu the welding beat of a campaign; but what there in in South American politics to so suddenly nsnurue so formidable shape in discusoion has not yet been explain er <ed. I.ONUSTREETS REMOVAL. Gen. James Longtrtreet win. u relative of the Dent family, aud thereby closely related to President Graut, by whom he waa appointed U. 8. Marshal of the State of Georgia soon after the close of , the war. Whether or not Longstreet's j sudden conversion from one political J extreme to the other wns connected with | prospective advantages in the civil ser- > vice has not been explained, lint now | comes President Arthur, aud summari- j ly demands his official head, causes are assigned. One based upon the recommendation of the Attorney j General charging him with gross care- | lessness and ineffleienev in the per formance of ids official duties; the oth er, that he was a warm friend of Maine, and proclaimed his preference among the delegates to the Republican Chicago Convention. Probably the latter cause was the actu al reason for his removal. The telegraph is tlushed with indignation over many other official changes and promotions made within the pqft two weeks in va rious departments of the Government, alleged to have been made without re gard to the oivil service rules. As many of the recent apportionments iu tiie States aud Territories have boon mado without respect to either local rosidenco or influence, the Chicago platform, or regular promotion in the runkB, the peo ple will naturally conclude that the powers that lie are rewarding their friends aud punishing their enemies. If Longstrcet has lost his official head he can scarcely complain when he re calls how he found it. Two Precinct Boundaries.
