Grant orgnn, aounda tlio n"!6s of tilurin
in tho following urlido, wbieh tve
trnntifor to our columns and nik oar
roudcrs lo gives an attentive perusal :
"Tlicro wag a lima whon American
elections were frco. Fraud "ran al
most unknown, und tliu voter could
go the polls and onk for tho ticket lie
wanted, Vhi; 'or Democratic, with
the knowledge that ha would not bo

ore not yut old cun remember that
lime when tho official vote wua an
honest expression of the will of tho
ponnlo. Tho difference betweon tho
cotiniry thou and its proaont political
condition h as Hturiling un that bu-

cal condition lias becomo corrupt in

ing tho peoplo tn tho pardon of any
crime nomtnittcil in lliu Republican
puny," beouuae that purty'ti iucccm
was essential ti tho salbty of the nation..-:
Wo still heur men, otherwise
considered ' sane, laying, "I would
rulhur voto for the devil himsrlf than
for it Jlcmocrnl." . Tho result of tho
wur placed u military party in power,
organised corruption, took possession
of tho Government, nnd now Grunt
stands fur thus tho candidate of the
great corrupt money power, which,
by iscls of Legislatures and of Ocjn-
gross, has become "strung orongh lo
defy the peoplo lit the polls, and to
plan u perpetual rule und a permanent
occupation of tho Government.
"Tho President is avowedly theenndi-
duloof the rich men of tit ) country, and
by tho rich men wcTo not moan thoso
who by Industry, co.ouomy and ability
have acquired small fortunes aa their
list reward. Wo mean tho chronic
millionairesand spoeiiliillvo capitalists,
who, without industry, without econ
omy,but with dungoroiis ability, havo
grown enormous rich out of thu lion
est labor of olhors, und who togolhor
hnyo rticcceded in controlling even tho
i.'utioiml finances. They use not only
their own money in speculation, but
yours and ours ; the slock, the bonds,
tho fuctonus, tho mills, tho property
of tho people, tho vory money hoy
uto rises or falls in value- us these pow
erful epeeulutivo rings determine.
Thcro is not a man connected with
thoso rings who is not earnestly for
Grant, who will not spend money und
energy to elect him, and thus originate
the campaign cry that tho "financial
interests" of tho country demand and
bis administration shall bo continued.
As the cundidato of tho rich men,
Ulyssos 8. Grant is a success. - lie
bus never entered a poor mun'a house
or allowed his children to aincd be be
came rich himself. All hjs associa
tion ttnd friendships are with the
rich. Liko ull men who have wculj-U
thrust auddonly opon thorn, he at
taches o It false Importance, and the
unaccustomed luxuries of horses and
dogs fill him with vulgar delight.
But more than this, he has boon Initi
ated Into the valuo of money aa a
political power) he has aoen the high
ost honors in tho gift of tho people
purchased us deliberately as men
purchuso calllo; be has witnessed tho
snlo of State Legislatures, and Con
gress Itself bought wholesale by the
bribes of tho Credit Moblier. The
lesson so easily lesrno l is boldly prac
ticed. Thu President depends fur bis
conlinuunco in office upon money alone
in every election district in the United
Stales. It was tho unlimited expen
diture of monoy in North Carolina,
distributed under the pretense ihut it
was for tho uso of iho judiciary that
produced tho monstrous fruud and
begun' counting there. It wns money
corruptly tpouU in-HUinw thai saved
his majority In thut euro quarter from
being cut down lo alarmingly low fig
ures. It la the money that bo is now
squandering in Pennsylvania upon
which ho relics fur knock injj the Gree
ley progress on the bend in the drcud
ed election of October. . s (
"Never before was such an expen
sive campaign as this known in ibe
United States. Whenco comes the
shower of wealth f I'ruin the luxa
tion of every person employed by tho
Government, no mutter bow liumblo
his position and how small his sulary.
From the Treustiry of tho United
Slates, which makes the loan upon tho
security that it will secure Grant's re
election, nnd from tho vast specula
tive, gambling rings of Iho rich men.
w ho invest in Grant stock in tho ex
pcclion that It will return them divi
dends proportionate lo the risk. The
speculation Is like tha', of the Credit
liobilier; it depends upon tho Govern
ment aid for the proSis it could nut
gain by a legitimate transaction. All
these uion arc for Grant. Rut the in.
dustry of the counlry Is not tor him ;
the manufacturers are not for him.
His ally is the spoliation which
plunders both. Tho power which
makes tho national wealth is natural
ly with Greeley, and thut which des
irously and unscrupulously uses il,
sustains Grunt, because he is its wil
ling tool, and because iu his second
administration schemes of conquest
and aggrandizement are to bo perfect
ed which in the first would not have
'If Grant is elected it will be be
cause this money power, identified and
auuluined by th .l.olo furo ttitl Influ
ence of tho Government of tho United
Stales transformed into a political
machine, bus becomo stronger than
tho peoplo. What tho inevitable re
sult will be is too obvious. The first
thing wo shall hear, if ho is elected,
will be a proposition in Congress that,
in obodience to the expressed will ol
all the pooplo, of all parlios, tho Presi
dential term shall be extended to six
er evn to tor.. ilh rcc
tation of a compromise on eight. This
will hardly surprise us after what we
bave been and beard. We arc told
now thnt the "financial interests" re
quire that Grunt shall be continued
in power; will they continue lo "re
quire" il f We aro told that the peace
of tho South can not bo muintainod
without him ; is il likoly that bo will
mako it moro peaceful? ' It is assert
ed that under him tho country bus
boen more prosperous and contented
thut il ever was before; qnd should
not this happy rule bo continued . All
lli o reasons why Grunt should be re
elected now will bo urged with double
force und plausibility in favor of the
extension of his term of office. -
"Wo already heur men lulking of
the inconvenience of Presidential elec
tions and iho Iniprriipliiiu they ruuse
to business, and urging that the term
should be mudo at least six years
Only tho other day a distinguished
und eloquent advocate of Grunt de
clared that the peoplo wanted him lo
be their President "us lung as God
and tho constitution'' would permit.
The constitution unfortunately, offers
no bur to his lo.eleeiion but wo think
it would bo us well to leave God out
of tho question. And exactly the
means which aro now used to inuko
his to-oluclion compulsory will then
be employed with still grouter potency
to effect this changa in the constitu
tion. Tho pooplo wilt have lost their'
opportunity. They will not be able
to tour down the powor which they
allowed to onlronch itself in the gov
ernment, and Hie term will be extend
ed. Then will follow the Napoleonic
eloctive presidency, justified by na
tional necessities, and nothing is then
left fur this counlry but submission
to a pormnnonlly-ostublished govern
ment or resort lo revolution. Tho
logic is not ours. It is llio )ogio of
hutnunily the logic of all history."
When you read & book crush the
words as you would grapes, and suck
their meaning out. , It is the only
way to got the puro wine of thought
from the vintage of literature. :
A Kansas paper tells about a man
who attempted lo steal a public road

, The Fair Vertliot.
A verdict of ucquittul this morning
terminated the most remarkable and
intorusting criminal triut that bus oc
curred In the history of California.
On the evening of the 8d of Novem
ber, J370, Mrs. Luura D. Fair shot
and killed lion, A. 1'. Criltendcn.
Ilotb tho parties to the tragedy were
widely known. Mrs. Fuir was of no
toriously bad character, and hud fig
ured conspicuously in connection wilh
sovoral terrible shooting affuirs Mr.
Cl'ifltf'ndcn was nn j-ininent luwyer
und a loading pull ticlun, although never
vyjVitS uruuo. Alio long rcaiueucu .in
the Bwte, distinguished rrputution
und higl. social standing as the bead
of a large and respected family, gave
unusul interest to tha case, and excited
publio attention in a greater degree
than was ever known before The
press lepmod with details of the crimo,
and did not scruple to lift the curtain
which hud screened the private con
duct of tho parties. Mrs. Fuir's whole
life was exposed to the publio gaze,
and tho dark and bloody incidotils ol
her strange career dwelt upon and
portrayed in strong colors. Under
theso circumstances il is not surpris
ing thut grout diflleully wns experi
enced in getting n jury of unbiased
and imrmrlial citizens. Noarly every
man of sufficient Intelligence to set tin
a jury hud lead about iho case and
formed a decided opinion. Finally,
howovor, twelvo men were found capa
ble of service in that capacity, and
the trial proceeded under ibe manage
ment of a powerful array of counsel.
Woek after week it drugged its alow
length along, but tho public interest
in tho proceedings appeared never to
flag. The nowspupcrs published ull
Iho testimony, including a mass of cor
respondence which bud belter have
beon omitted. The trial at last came
io an end, at tho expiration of thirty
days, resulting In a vordicl of guilty
of murder in tho first degree. An ap
peal was taken lo the Supremo Court,
and a new trial grunted. After a
patient investigation of twenty-two
days, the second jury brought in, this
morning, a verdict of "Not Guilty.
' Nobody, now, we think, expected
Mrs. Fair to hang, but this vordict of
"not jiniliy," in the fuco of all the evi
dence, strikes llio community wilh as
tonishment. If there over wus a de
liberate murder it was that of Critton-
dun. If Mm. Fair was insane, then
everybody who, moved by evil pas
sions, commits a wicked net, is also
insune tlioro can bo no such thing as
crime, and there should be no such
thing ns punishment. For it must bo
remembered that Mrs Fuir wus not a
nmi'len seduced nnd belrayoJ, or a
virtuous wnu wtiiwe me uuu uuttti
blasted by an unholy love. Sho was
notorious womun of the world, who,
during her yeurs of open concubinage
wilh I r victim bus diuwu from him
largo i-pma of money, and Iho provo
cation , which prompted her to tho
dood was that her paramour, who liv
ing with her Imd disgraced his wife
and didionored his children, hud mude
up bis: mind lo aguin to yield lo his
better impulses, and return to the wo
man vhom ho hud sworn to lovo, honor
und cUrieh, and who, 8 the mother
of his Children hud stronger claims lo
his love and devotion than any other
human Doing on ourlh could have
Thin the provocation which in-
ducul Irs. Fair to shoot down her
purumvir at llio moment oi uis meet
ing wiJh bis outraged family to send
him iijto eternity with crimes una-
neled, lust as the much injured wifo
had itilin tonio to him nftor an ab
sence ind living deulh of years.
And liio deliberate killinir of a man
upon Mh provocation as thid is what
the viidiet of the jury declares no
crime I We do not extenuate the
oonduel of Crittenden. lie bad pluoed
himself outside the polo of sympathy ;
but ficra were not the hands which
should be held guiltless in taking his
life. If ho was no belter than she
us, she at least wns as bud as ho.
io real victim is tho dovotcd wife

ilany of them have advanced fur be
yond any relative proportion which
wo should have expected to this iu-
crcaso of population. Among others,
this is truo of our agricultural pro-
ducts. Going back, not ton, but twen
ty years for our standard of compari
son, it is seen still more plainly.
Knowing that our increase of popula
tion within tbe twenty years hud been
but ubout sixty per cent., we believe'
no ono would have ventured to put
tho present production of so mo of our
largest staples, on whoso telative
abundance we have always prided
ourselves, at two, three, or five-fold
that of 1850. And yet, unwarranted
as this would bave seemed as nn eslU
mate, il is established as a fact by the
figures of the census. ' The Buret,; of
Statistics, in giving some of the sum
maries of returns, (ells us that in
twenty years tho Whoat crop of the
country has trebled. Barley has in- '
creased six-fold. Flux, six-fold. Fla,
seed, three fold, flops huve increased

creased from sixty to a hundred mil
lion pounds. Cotton, is half a million
bales above llio crop of 1S50, theugli
it has not yet returned tq tho great ,
crop of 1800 the palmy days whon
Cotton was called King. Irish pota
toes havo only increased a third, w hile,
swoet potatoes have decreased one- ,
half. Corn has increased largely
within tho period, though, il seems,
the crop of 18uG was turgor than that .
of 1ST J by sevenly-oight million bush- ,

Examinuliuu would probably bhow
some similar rule of increaso in other
linos ot production. Most of tbe lead
ing manufactures bave been advanc
ing as fast, probably, or faster Ibaa

has grown up from comparative in
