FRIDAY, JANUAUY 23, 1885.
Don Cnmcron wai reelected United
Stale Senator on Wedneoday, tlie
iemoornU .ill voting for Wallace.
Our Washington correspondent
thinks that Grant ought not to bo
placed on tho retired list of the nrmy,
with which view wo cannot concur.
Gen. Grant in broken in health nnd
ruined in fortune, and it is only an act
of common decency to put him back
where ho was when he resigned the
pencnilfliip, to accept tliu Presidency.
Tlie Senato has passed tho bill intend.
?ft for.his benefit, but leaving blank
the namo of the peison to bo appoint
ed to the lellred list, in order to over'
come the ditlicultics pointed out by
President Arthur in his veto of tho
Fitz-John Porter bill. The democrats
of tho House will probably, insert
Grant's namo and thus compel tho
President to sign it, or repudiate the
Porter veto, ft is true that Grant has
been very liberally treated by tho
American people, and it is also truo
that his foituue has been fooled away
by his utter want of business capacity,
but now that ho is in trouble, Congress
should try to relievo him, by reinstat
ing him in tho array.
If justice requires this to be done for
Grant, how much more does it demand
that something should bo douo for
Porter ! Grant brourjht on his trou
ble by his own folly j Porter has suffer
ed for twenty years under tho sentence
of a court martial composed of his ene
mies, which has since been clearly
shown to have been unjust and unde
served. The press irrespective of par
ty havo urged measures for his relief,
both branches of Congress passed a
bill at last session, which was vetoed
by a republican President on a techni
cality. If a bill for Grant's relief bo
passed, , a similar ono in Porter's behalf
should bo prepared and pushed through,
so that justice, though tardy, may be
done a noble and greatly wronged sol
FROM OUU ItEUULAlt CORKESrONDENT.
"Wasiunoto.v, Jan., lOtli, 1884.
During tho past week the debates
anil npt nf ( Innitrpufl h.ivn tnnohnd fl
. variety of subjects. Tho French Spo
liaUon bill, which was first brought up
eighty-thrco years ago, has passed both
houses, and the Nicaranguan Dill which
opens up the widest and gravest possi
bilities, has been debated. Jeffeisoii
Davis and Teouraaeh Sherman havo
both revisited the glimpses of the moon,
and tho Senato has voted to restore
Ulysses 8. Grant to his rank in the
army. Thero was considerable Bur
prise expressed at tho fact that Demo
emtio Senators voted .villi tho Iiepub
lictns to restort) Qen. Grant, but more
surprise will be expressed if the Demo
oratio House shall allow the bill to be'
come a law.
Human idolatry never reached ;i
more beastly depth thau in its worship
ot tirant. J.lie country does not owe
as much to him as it does to hundreds
of others. But because be has lost his
ill-gotten fortune through stupidity and
lraud, and his wonderful health through
prolonged dissipation, the Senate, a
portion of tho press, and a herd of
uilllionaiies dissolvo in maudlin pity
over an example of spurions greatness
to which history furnishes no parallel
There are decided objections asjainct
restoring lien, tjrant to Ins rank in tho
army. The last time he held power as
president of tho United States, he used
it to disperse southern legislatures and
to overawe opposition to Iho fraudu
lent seizure of the ptcsidenoy by the
concpirators of I87C. Tho Edmunds
bill proposns to place him only on tho
retired list of generals, but the Su
preme Court has decided that tho re
tired list is as fully a part of tho Army
a the active list, nud that the former
may at any time be called into ser
Suppose there should be another dis
puted election, as in 1876, or like that
which occurred only last November.
How easy and how natural (had an
other than Arthur been in the White
House) would it have been for Blaine
to summon Grant, as senior general, to
assume command. And with his namo
and prestige, and the fauatneism of his
idolators, tho crime and shame of 1S7G
might have bceu repeated. History
never repeats itself, butiollyand crime
aru perpetual. These dangers may bo
treated as ttivialties, since they are not
imminent, but it will be the part of
tolly to make them even remotely pos
sible by placing Grant again in the
Thero is a disposition on the Demo
emtio sido here in both houses to do
nothing at this short session except
pas the appropriation bills. Thu bills
still to be considered are so many that
ibis postponement to another Congress
of all legislation will bo easy to aexom
It is not among the impossibilities
that there mav be au extra session, and
for a number of reasons, it need not be
deprecated, As it is now, more than a
year intervenes between tho election of
Congressmen and the beginning
their duties. This fact has frequently
been commented upon as opposed to
wo spine oi our laws, uuu uojeciiuna
blc. The election and tho service
should be brought nearer together,
either by spring elections, or spring
ossions. Thero is certainly no reason
why of two men elected to co-ordinatu
public trusts nt the same time, one
should enter upon cfliuo on the fourth
of March and tho other on the first
Monday of the following December.
Hut apart from the abstract questions
involved, it will scarcely be disputed
bv those nt all familiar with thu woik
iiotv thrust upon Congrew, that its or
dinary sessions are of inadequate
length to enable it to cope with Us le
gitimato business. It is true that much
time is now wasted, and that more
would bo it the sessions wero longer,
but that does not argue that Congress
should not give itself a fair chance to
do its work.
Tho President's social duties hav
, kept him busy during tho past week
and ore ike v to c mploy bis eveningi
ior some time to come. Hu has aban
doned nil idea of visiting the New Or

and lias to intormctl tue uoaru oi man

William M. Kvnrts ha been elected
to the United States SenMo by tho
legislature of Now York. His
chief opponent was Lev I P. Morton,
whoso friends attempted to buy tho
placo for Mm, but failed.
There is a little unpleasantness In
the republican eamp just now over tho
dispute bnween Senators Emery and
Cooper. Emery charges Cooper with
using llio money given him m Chair
man of the slnto committee, to elect
representatives favorable to Cameron,
rather than for tho benefit of ibe Hla'uie
electors. Emery gave Cooper SoOt)
for campaign jmrposc, nnd says that
Cooper used it in his (Emery's) own
district endeavoring to defeat him.
No money wns given the national committee-
by Coopt.r. The fiery-topped
senator denies Emery's charges nnd

tells the truth will probably never bo
