There are some who express surprise
that President Johnson should have
tendered the War Secretaryship, even
ad interim, to General Grant, and still
others who are disappointed that Grant
should have acceplcd the position.
Grant, being a subordinate, is bound
to obey the orders of the President.
Had he refused to act as Secretary of
War, Johnson might have regarded it
as an act of insubordination, and made
it an excuse for removing him from
the oflice of General of the army. A
state of things he anticipated, no doubt,
for it is patent that he covets Grant's
romoval as much as he did Stanton's.
I Hero can he no ilouiiL that it was a
conspiracy against Grant that prompt
ed the appointment. Johnson per
ceived the delemma : "Let Grant
refuse and I will suspend him also.
Let him accept and Stanton's friends
will discard him."
Grant is too old a tactician to be out

The address of the Democratic State
Committee of Pennsylvania has one
merit it is short. I3ut, brief as it is,
it contains almost as nianv false as
sertions its sentences, and is a specimen
ot the very worst kind ot political
trickery. All the evils of the war
the loss of life, taxation, debt, high
prices, paper currenev are enumerat
ed as the direct work of the Republi
can party. Not a word is said of the
Kebellion. e wonder what stull a
Democratic State Committee can be
made of which gravely submits such
an argument as this to the people.
It is true that wc have a great debt,
which bears as heavily upon Repub
licans as on Democrats; it is true that
wc arc severely taxed to pay it ; it is
true that prices arc high, that the cur
rency is depreciated. A 11 this wc
know and laments; but it is also true
that we owe these evils, first, to the
Rebels, and second, to the Democratic
party, and wholly to their combined
efforts to destroy the Union. It seems
almost absurd to repeat these truths,
for no ingenuity will ever conceal the
great fact that the South rebelled, that
the Democratic party sympathized
with rebellion, anil that the Republi
can party directed and maintained the
War for the Union, and brought it to
a triumphant end. It is notorious
that the Rebels depended for aid iqion
the Democratic party ; that the official
action of that party was hailed in the
South as an encouragement to persist
in rcliellion ; that it it had not been
tor democratic opposition the war
would have ended years, perhaps, be
fore it did, and that tho debt and all
our national evils would now be im
measurably less, ihere is notmnr
plainer than that tho Democratic party
next to the Rebels is responsible
for the war nnd the misfortunes that
have followed it. We repeat, there-
tore, that to compare the rate of taxa
tion in 18G0 with the rate in I860, in
proof that the Republican party has
mismanaged the finances, without a
word of reference to the war, is simply
the meanest kind ot political trickery.
and certain to damage the cause it was
meant to help. This address is insult
ing to tho intelligence of the reader,
and a slander of tho North, for the
Republican party and the North
throughout the war were one and indi
visible. It is all the loval States that
this Democratic Committee accuses of
tyranny, and hatred, and corruption.
VThe Democraticjournals deal large
ly in metaphor. One of them calls
Mr. Stanton "a low mule," and in the
next sentence accuses him of "riding
the high horse." A mule on horse
back would be a remarkable sight.

Sheridan, who has lieen assigned to
command the Department of Missouri,

nouncing to ills numerous friend and patron
that he has returnod to Washington and resum
ed practice at his old stand, corner of Main and
Chestnut streets, where lie can bo found at all
times by those wishing to consult htm In regard
to diseases and their treatment. The Dr. deems
it unnecessary to enter Into the details of his
theory and practice, as from hundreds of cases
which he has treated with complete success in
Washington and adjolnlim counties, the public
are mnro or less acquainted with his system.
He would, however, say that daring his resi
dence In Cincinnati! he had experience In hospl
tnl practice, making weekly visits to the princi
pal hospitals of tho city, coming In contact with
elironlo diseases of every type and kind, nnd
having ample opportunity to witness the effect
of the most approved und sclentlHo modes of
treatment, the Doctor has also added to hlsnffice
u very hue Microscope, which enables him to
make Optical, Chemical, and Microscopical ex
amination of any cuso that maybe presented,
In short, to reduce medical Diagnosis by means
of the urine to absolute certainty, leaving no
room for doubt, either on his part, or that of the
patient. The atnieted are Invited toeull und test
his treatment with the assurance of speedy re
lief nnd permanent cure.
