Tlie Army Report.
The report proper ol liineral Grant
is short, and it is only a sort of intro
duction to the reports of department
commanders, lie refers ta the report
of the adjutant general to give the
condition and strength of the army,
but that document docs not uccoinpu
ry the report now received, lie says
that it has been necessary to keep
troop in the disloyal Stales for the
protection of the" peace, and hopes
that ere long they may be withdrawn
and sent to the Tcrritoi ies, where
they arc greatly jrsnted. The report
of Lieutenant General Sherman goes
very fully into this matter, and dis
cusses the whole subject of our Indian
relation with perspicuity and ability.

from the Mercer I'wu. The sworn

Abuse is not argument. It is used
most w hen argument liiils. The Rad
ical presses and speakers assail the
President with coarse vituperation,
because they can urge no sound ob
its i jeclions nijainst either his character
ow l or his conduit.. They should first
show that ho deserves to bo condemn
ed, before they eotidemt, him ; that lie
is justly obnoxious to ridicule, Itoforc
they ridicule him. If, for example,
the" President has dear views and H9-
itive opinions as to an' measure or
measures of administration and ev
ery man who is fit for the olfice should
have such views and opinions they
may jimperly enough bo called the
President's view s.the President's jilans
or the President's jwtlicy. Put they
are not for thut reason to lie denounc
ed. If they arc sound aid wise in
themselves, they should not be les
ueccjitable to l.'onirress or the jieoj.le,
siinl.ly because they originate with
and are honestly held by him who is
them. They failed, w hony taiieu;

Tho policy of jlr. Johnson may be
derided as hit policy, but he is legally
required, as I hief .Magistrate ol the
nation, to have a jiolicy, and the jn-o-plo
must determine w hether that jiol
icy is right or wrong. Kven if wrong,
the President is not to be censured for
having a policy, since he is obliged by
tho Constitution, and the oath he took
to lueserve, jirolect and defend it, to
have an opinion of his own on all que

they do just that, when they send
