se.:The Democrats are making great
ado about the expression of General
Grant that "Troops are still needed in
the Southern States," and contrast it
with his expression before the election
of "Lot us have peace." The Demo
orate who make a hubbub about this
are assuredly great geniuses. Of course,
they want the Ku Kluxes to be let
alone; of course all the troops are to
be withdrawn so that their brethren
-may do as they please; of course peace
must be restored by taking the rebels
by the hand and whispering loving
terms of conciliation in their ears; of
course that is the way they expected
peace to be restored ; but Grant thinks
otherwise. Peace is to be restored, in
his estimation, by compelling the
Southern revolutionists to obey the
laws—only this and nothing more,
and if he don't have troops at his com•
mend to effect this how could ho ac
complish it? An unpeaceable commu
nity like the South needs the military
to make them understand how peace
is to be obtained. But it is the old
principle of the Democrats again 'man
ifesting itself; for when the rebellion
was about to be inaugurated they
counselled peace by compromise, un
til the rebels in armed array fired up
on Fort Sumpter, and even then some
of them were bold enough to say, Oh!
don't use the military! But the peo
ple demanded its use then, and General
Grant but obeys the will of the people
now when ho declares that "troops
are still needed in the Southern States."
wigk..Gan. Howard has asked the ap
pointment of a committee to exam*,
into the operations of the Freedman's

the Democrats before the election
