'The NOW - Cabinet Members.
As we anticipated last week, some
Very important changes have been
made in 0-en. GRANT'S Cabinet. Mr.
S'TRWART, on amount of ineligibility,
resigned,and Mr.Rmyrwrxt,,of Mass.,
takes his place. Hon. E. M. WASH
BURN, in Consequence of ill health, re
sigti64 his position as Secretary of
State; -- and HAMILTON FISH, of New
York, - was appointed in his stead.—
Gen. ScitortELD resigned his position
as Secretary of War, and Gen. JOHN
A. RAWLINS, formerly chief of Gen.
GRANT'S Staff, was immediately ap
pointed by the President to fill that
important place. Of these appoint
ments, says the Philadelphia Press,
every Republican will speak in the most
liberal manner.
The Secretary of State, Hon. HAM
ILTON FISH, of New York city, is an
able and accomplished citizen. Born in
1809, he has reached that period in
life when all the powers of a man are
fully matured, and when his ambitions
are least likely to conflict v. ith his
reason. A graduate of one of the old
est-and best colleges in his State, be
has never neglected his education, but
has &kept his mind fully qualified for
all his Varied business duties, as well
as Tor the -amenities that distinguish
'the gentleman of letters and refinement.
Admitted to the bar in 1530, a bril
liant career as a lawyer-lay before him,
alfhough &fleeted by choice of
politics a few y2ars later, he never lost
his prestige as counsellor or pleader.
His ability in this respect is of the most
undoubted kind. Thoroughly acquaint
ed with details, his large public expe
rience has rubbed off the angular pe
culiarities of the court-room habitue,
-and given to his thoughts the compre
lensiveness.of -the finished statesman.
Mr. FISH'S political career began in
1843, when elected to Congress for one
term. His promotion was deservedly
rapid. In 1848 ho was chosen Govern
or of his native State, and from 1851
to 1857 'filled the position of United
States Senator. In all these offices he
acquitted himself with honor; never
descending into partisanship, but firm
ly adhering t() mature?" convictions of
right. At the breaking out of the war,
he paused not in his devotion to the
Sag, and during the bloofi.y years of its
continuance he gave unswerving ac
cord to the principles which Union
bayonets wrenched from the enemy.—:
Since, he has stood unflinching-1y byte
Republican party, and has, in .eany
notable instances, proved one of the
wisest of its counsellors. lie therefore
approaches his new dufjles full of qual
ification, and with an understanding of
its responsibilities, heightened by ob
servant travel, among the nations which
give importance to our diplomacy.—
Mr. WASHBURNE could have had no
more fitting successor, and the premier
of Auburn may not even have proved
so satisfactory to the American and
foreign public as we prophesy the new
Secretary will.
The selection of Mr. BOUTWELL for
the Secretaryship of the Trea:.ury is
eminently wise. This gentleman will
prove especially acceptable to the coun
try. He has been before the country
as a prominent member of the House
for years, and his record is unblemish
ed. All through the trying times of
war, and the eventful years of peace,
he has been a model of Republican
consistency. Like the late THADDEUS
STEVENS, he clings with tenacity to the
few elementary principles of govern
ment rather than allow himself to be
distracted by :multiform and conflict
ing - theories. He is a careful student,
and Ihas acquired an enviable mastery
Over the complicated problems of fi
nance, as his propositions and speeches
in the House abundantly prove. His
am iability makes him easily approach
table, and his readiness to hear and
learn iuspifes confidence. No part of
his Congresbicmal record is brighter
than that which relates to impeach
ment. From the first to the last he
insisted, with the firmness of one thor
oughly grounded in constitutional law,
upon the
_removal ;of that great Execu
tive Accident whose zmbridled ambi
ion led him to thwart tile wishes of
the people. Of the many tributes to
eloquenCe and. sound legal constrz.letion
rendered on that occasion, Mr. BOLT
WELL'S stands among the first.
Like General GRANT, the new Sec
,•etary is a self-made man. Commenc
-i, its a farmer's boy, he passed

is-with atrunusual degree of pride
that we refer to Major General JOHN
A. RasitiNs, the new Secretary of
War, He Is about forty-five years of

unexcep- tionable deportment. As an
attorney he _
ranks high. His acquaint
with eret :eral GRANT preceded

Were the intrinsic qualifications of
General RAWLINS for his poition less
prominent, the history of his intimate
association with General GRANT would
afford a guarantee of faithful perform
ance of all duties.
This brief review of the appoint
ments may serve to show that there is
a peculiar fitness about each one of
them. The adjustment appears to be
complete so far as sagacity can make
it so. The President will feel at home
when in council with his
_advisers, and
their deliberations will ccnsequently be
fraught with good results.
A general acquiesence in the selec
tions will be given by the public, and
the Administration may now start on
a career of prosperity which it deserves
and which the party and the country

elections to be held to fill the vacan

ment on the part of the Democrats
will cost the State, or rather the tax
payers of that State, the neat little
sum of $lOO,OOO. - This shows bow
little they care about the people's
money. It shows that they do not re
gard the will of the people. They
-se-cede from the Legislature to defeat
tLe will of the majority, and would

are a disgrace to, and a libel upon,the

The Elections Since the Inaugura
tion of President Grant.
Our Democratic friends have boast
ed for some time past that the passage
of " the Constitutional Amendment
would destroy the party. Well, sever
al elections have been held since its
passage, which have resulted as fol
In New Hampshire, where a Repub
lican was elected last year by a majori
tv of about twenty-five hundred, an
election was held on the 9th inst, and
the result is

For Bedell (Democrat) 23,026
.Rep4blican majority 4,798
'rhe Republicans elected all their
candidates fi r Congress, and out of 12
Senators elected this year, ten of them
are Republicans, a gain of four.
Another election was held in Cam
den, N. J., and the Republican candi
date for mayor received a majority of
over five hundred, somewhat larger
than Gen. GRANT received last fall.
Bridgeport, N. J., has a!so endorsed
the administration of Gen. GRANT, by
electing the whole Republican ticket
in every ward by increased majorities.

" to return back to my subject."—
Aniong'the thingS which Chicago
doing big at this time, is the veloci-
Ode. Velocipedestriamism is the
s eegation now. This section is well
calculaid for this hind of boss, for
here the land lies on its Sicli instead
of stan3ing on its ego as it does in
Pennsylvania. Of course we have not
so much land to the acre as if it stoats
on edge ; but it is better for yeloei--
nedes, for although this animal runs
down hill quite easily, it is somewhat
balky when you undertake to ride it
up bill. It is decidedly "up hill busi ,
ness." A man has about allthe bus
iness he wants,to ride one on the level
ground, and you may properly eharge
the:rider With being a Ausy body."
The-velocipede is an excellent means
of developing the muscles. I have
seen persons deVelope the muscles of
the — head and face in one attempt to'
ride. You can also reduce the flesh
on - your body if you :desire to bring ,
yourself down to your fighting weight.
I saw a man reduce his flesh consider
ably the other day by comine• in con—
tact with a picket fence. He objects
to gcing , on picket again. I like to see
young ladies on ; velocipede-bade. Wo
men, you know, are more agile than
men, and I think this the best

Oh, how I would love to embrace

new begiviners ride all - over a veloci—
pede, and•over considerable ground
besides. One lady," whose husbi.-.d

Mr. Stewart Declines.
The following is the letter of Mr
STEWART to President GRANT- deem
ing the Treasury Appointment :
WASEIINGCON, March 9,186 g.
To the PreAleot—DElrn SIR : Ap
preciating the .high honor conferred by
your nomination and the unanimous
confinination by the Senate of myself
to the office of Secretary of the treas.
ury, I regret that circumstances beyond
our control compel me to deciine.
Could the difficulties presented by the
provisions of the act of 1789, which,
in organizing the department of the
treasury, prohibits the secretary from
being directly or indirectly concerned
or interested in carrying on the busi
ness or trade of commerce, be overcome
by any reasonable sacrifice to mys,H, I
would willingly make it. I would
promptly transfer to gentlemen in
whom the public have full. confidence
every interest in the gains and profits
that could possibly accrue to myself in
the business of my . house during my
official term to be aPplit d to such pub
lic charities as their judgement should
dictate, and have proposed and sought
by the execution of appropriate instru
ments to accomplish that end. But
serious differences of opinion have
been expressed as to whether that
course would satisfy the requirements
of the law, and although I will not hes
itate to make this appropriation, pro
vided it would enable me to accept the
office and thus unite my efforts with
your own and other members of your
cabinet in restoring economy, honesty
and strict frugality in the administra
tion of the government, and lifting as
rapidly as practicable from the people
the great burdens of taxation, debt
and extravagawe resting upon them.
yet the business relations of my firm,
and its connection with others largely
interested in their continuance, are
such that they cannot be severed sum
marily, nor can my interest in it be
whoiely and absolutely disposed of
without producing great embarrass
ment and loss to those with whom I
have-been conneetAl. I cannot con
sent to enter upon the adm;nistratioa
of laws by any act or course that can
be construed into a disregard or viola
tion of the law, and while. therefore,
regret that the plan proposed is deem
ed-inadequate to relieve me fro it leg t',
and as it seems to me, technical (Lisa
bilitieS, I yield to the better ju& , -.
merit of others rather than seem to be
willing to - accept a position in disre
spect of law. In finally renewing the
declination which was tendered at the
outset of these objections, I repeat to
you, Mr. President, my thanks for the
honor done me in 'offering this high
position, and assure. you that you will
have my earne‘t Obits to susta'n your
administration in carrying out the wise
and salutary measures indicated by you
on entering upon your office.
Sincerely your friend,
Whatever may be the opinions en
tertained by people in regard to the
propriety of the appointment of Mr.
STEWART, honest men everywhere wi!!
think more highly of hlin for his noble
letter. .4e haq shown a spirit worthy
