opened to their rapacious grasp, and
tho public pap bo doled out to fill their
empty maws. Is tho country bankrupt,
nro there no manufactures, no com
merce, no stralcht-forward ways to
cam subsistence that this hordo of har
pies must Infest tho national Capitol
and dlsgraco tho country? This etrug.
glo is not confined entirely to tho poor
and unknown, for in tho list of appli
cants for small offices may bo seen tho
names of some who have achioved at
least a local reputation politicians of
note, ex-Congressmen, all eagerly desi
rous of partaking of tho crumbs which
fall from tho public crib -if no loaf is
vouchsafed theni It seems as if one
half tho nation Is bitten by this insid
ious serpent of placo-huntlng. There
can bo but ouo opinion as to tho result
Which this scramble for plunder must
produco upon tho people; it can but de
grade and demoralize. Certainly some
now system should at.onco bo devised
by which tho advances of the army or
oillee-seekers may bo checked. Jf the
ensuing Congress could so fur divest it
self ol party demands as to enact a law
by which tho present ovll could be aver
ted, it would entitle Itself to tho warm
est thanks of tho entire community
and make for Itself such a placo In the
history of tho country as its immediate
predecessors hayo failed to gain.
General Quant appears to no ad
vantage in Senator Ross' account of
him. Ho seems to bo bringing very
small jealousies into tho administration
of tho government. To havo held office
under Johnson appears to bo enough to
ensure his enmity. Yet ho held ofllco
under Johnson, not only a military of
fice, but tho civil office of ad interim
Secretary of War. Ho has In Kansas,
as In Pennsylvania and Massachusetts,
and elsewhere, turned out gallant sol
diers, who berved with honor through
out the war, and put In tho worst spec
imens of tho class of Hadlcal politi
cians. AVhat Boss 6aysof Kansas is al
so exactly truo of Pennsylvania :
Yet, in tho faco of tho oft. repeated
declaration of tho President, that chan
ges in tho offices of tho country should
ho made only for cause, a portlotvof tho
delegation of that State hud dom.inded,
and tho President has conceded their
summary dismissal, on tho mere charge
of want of fealty to tho Republican
party, which charge, In many instances
those making it know to bo false' and
slanderous. .Nor is this all. Scarcely a
man has been appointed to those posi
tions from the ranks of that great army
of heroes whoso largely represent the
manhoodof thutState,aud who went out
with their lives In their hands, to en
dure hunger and fatigue, and cold aud
heat, that wo might sit hero as the rep
resentatives of a country saved. But
In their stead wo havo appointed over
us skulkers in timo of danger, and oven
notoriously unfit for any public trust.
The Kx-Prcsldentisadvanclugin fils
grand Southern march, ills progress
through Tennessee, from Kuoxvillo to
Nashville and Memphis, shows that ho
still retains his old popularity In that
Statu, and still wields as great a power
ns over over "tho masscss" and on tho
btump. At every station, shouting
crowds gathered to welcome him: nml
vthe dispatches say that at Memphis ho
was mot by a "vast concourse," and
was Obcorjpd through tho streets by tho
minorities anu an "lmmonso numner'
of people in carriages and on horseback
Weliavo no doubt that these scenes will
bo repeated wherover Mr. Johnson may
ehooso to go in tho South. Tho fact Is
tho Southern people regard tho Ex-
Prcsldeut ns their friend aud defender
against a "despotic Congress" lod by
Stevens and Butler; and they consider
that, though ho failed, it was after a
tremendous fight; for them, Jn which
ho himself sacrificed everything. Thoro
is no doubt that ho will bo back in tho
Senate before the close of President
Q rant's term.

NECESSITY OP THIS NARRATIVE.
Having described the, beginning of
tho Invasion, exposed tho pretenses for
It, aud mentioned tho first nrrcsts mado
In tho prosecution of its unholy work,
wo aro brought naturally to tho nnrra
tlon of Its performances after It hecamo
fixed upon our people. Hut beforo pro
ceeding further iu our regular courso,
wo pauso to answer n question, which
may bo inado by sumo candid readers,
or put to us by thoso whom this history
offends. For wo agreo that what wo
havo written, (as well ns what wo shall
wrlto hereafter) on this subject, may bo
Justly regarded as nggrosslvo in tono
and strongly condemnatory of Individ
ual conduct, and that thcro should bo
nmo good reason for Its publication.
We may therefore bo asked, "Why ro
vlvo tho past? Why provoko rcnowed
passion or resentment? Why cntcrup
on nn unnecessary or untimely work ?"
Wo answer, onco for all, that wo tics
crlbo a great crime for which somo de
gree of punishment is to bo inflicted by
public opinion, nnd that justlco de
mands that tho victims of tho Invasion
and our pcoplo generally, should bo de
fended against falsehood and slander.
Besides our review must bo instructive
as It will ndmonlsh us that arbitrary
power Is always selfish, unjust, and op
pressive, nnd that its encroachments
and usurpations aro to bo opposed with
f sleepless vigilance, and steady courage.
And wo havo had distinct proof recent
ly that men amongst us who wcro res.
ponslblo for tho wrongs wo denounce,
aro not nt all penitent in their feelings
or disposed to apologlsofor their mlscon

for intimating that ho ("tho party of

warmth of tlio evening, and tho disap
pointment of certain Senators in conse
quence of tho falluro of tho President to

strife. Accordingly Mr.Nyo.of Nevada,
who, for tlio purposo of explanation,
may bo styled tho audacious Senator,
was selected as tho proper person to
commenco tho raid on Spicguo. Tho
latter, who is naturally irritable, replied
iu languago rather unparliamentary,
whereupon Mr. Abbot, of Now Hamp

upon application of a remedy usually given In

serious was thought to be the matter. During tho
two succeeding days, however, she had similar

Her symptoms nro of the same mullguant typo

a very critical condition.
sad feature of tho caso, aud ouo most pain

A single spark may kindle a flame that will

produces weakness of tlio bodily powers. Some
times it happens that Iho appelilodcmauds more

more, perhaps, than Is required to keep up tho
