WKDNBSDAY HORNING, OCT. 3o, 1879.
GRANT AND HI8 FUOLEMAN TAKE TO POETRY.
It ti laid that Grant, when In conversation with
his chief Fugleman, oa the returns of tho lato State
Elections, In which waa not all satisfaction, went
off iu the following strain. " i ' I
wO, give me eoeuee uf blood and carnage
The popular will, Is wore to manage
Or scenes amidst tbe dead and dying, 1fc ' ' '
And not oa some men rvlylng.
Sdc what we've done fur the eld Korlh Ptate; '
They give us back re r en go ami hate.
I would to God 1 had stayed at tanning,
Aud thereby been eared from a nation a dnmning,
For, from all you've said, yuu must srmember,
Thifti'l Dotnt that way fur next - v -
"iliild, your higWj--, iu tlie returns of Maine
there a consolation.
Yes, I know, and our en use Is lost hy that, same
Just give me four years more of public ruling, '
And with my will there shall be no fooling.
rour years more nngenng in tne puh'le mauiury,
I'll lay well my plans and aot at leisure.
Then with my soldiers and tbe peoplc'a weal lb
witi be obeyed, H 1 keep uv bealtn.
Then spake again the Fugleman, aad said.
"lou snail nave ir, niavter, or t u ue nuiuuerea
with the dead. . i
And I swear, by the prestige of my Clan,
You shall get the party vote to the lust man.
1 care not wbut you u luard ot late,
Y'U will get all the loyal of my State. I
I know we have presented sides quite too many. I
Hut I'll male that all right in Pcuu-vlvania.
What odds if they should prove to be oo agon, -
I ni I fix them all, or my num., s not tarter.
There's I)un, not Don Juan, that famous rider,
Hut he that stiettcrkuown as the legislative briberi
He's a man of fire, as the color of bis hair dcootca,
And to buying men, part of his time devote t
But not to paying, as some mcwhers know.
In things, that happened about twu years ago, .
And in that very same transaction
I was badly beat by tbat other railroad faetlnn.
At that time, we bad to ohango one in tho Xatiou's
t thonght It wise to consult that railroad magnate.
I talked long to him, but all ia vain,
1 told uim it waa too sadly lain
Tbat one need of that buJj was a man In things
divine a teacher,
And bone would suit the place so well as tho Alle
Turn ulked around a a bile, and then he did begin.
Aud aaid, no could nut be taduoed to cuter in y
To any si t-up schema or plot
That would be prejudicial to one John Sdott, 1
Who had been faithful, aud served thorn with
devotion, - ,
And to that very place bad a somewhat aspiring
At this juncture I began to luck about '!
To find a hole tha I could crawl out, 1 f
As things looked, I d on myself been heaping
Then I tried the one cent tax upon petroleum;
So, In (llrard House, in room forty-two.
A hill was drawn just by a few,
Who wem expert in words and knew Ihotr meaning.
By no means young adepts in legislative sebeeming.
In words 'twaa guarded well,agniut all Roorback),
Aud for our stamps we would depood on Phila
The bill wt'tit through the House without detention,
And in the Senate there was little or no ooutcution;
I felt exultant, I must here tell, '
Por things were moving on tike a marriage bell?,
When a sudden change came o're the M joh ;
I don't mean tbat ever oh an gin g plant,
But he that's fixed R. H. member ot our Sture Senate.
At this sudden turn I felt inclined to tremble,
W hen I found tbe Jig was up with our poor Komble,
I was near being squeescd 'twren them two Scolts.
"f is all passed, it's a long lane that has no turning,
I'll caUb that Irwiu, should I over find bim
Enough of this, let ui get nearer to the point,
Or all our plans, may get bad'y out ol joint.
Now you hnve measured ell from your own dia
gram If you please, let me lay down the programme.
I would not hesitate to do It
ir I IhcMiRht in truth you would pursue it.
But since to lead your mind is bent,
You may mark it out, with my conrcnt.
Well, Lion wilt aid ns if we bun solicit,
And in our come down their it ao d licit
Then in my State Ml speak for strong protection,
I tbiuk 1 should, to aid in our Eicolumj
Further on wo will talk free trade,
You know mighty things with that's been made,
And in most sections ol the Weit
I think it suits the people bed
And as we gi t down in tbe South,
There we'll speak merely from tho mouth;
With their fool notions of that lost cause
We must sp-nk careful, to get out applause;
And when we get up among the Yanks,
Whore of late they've cut some quite queer pranks,
There all forts of talk will ba too Ibm,
To get their voire we must bring down the tlnj
If ue bare not the tin wo will u-c shinpWcrs,
And lay snothcr tax on our excise devils and
Now for this Fugleman a wirj I'll say,
In onler that be may get fair nlay.
You would Ibink to bear this Loro talk

"What will tho Democratic Party

It were better to enquire, what shall

more to country than lo party. It is
tho great wrong of llineo now in pow

closely anil quietly observing tlio' cur

men aro honestly striving for the wcl

party power, to enablo that party to
continno on through a second Presi

wilful and glaring violations of thoso

thrown urotind us as a national safe
guard. They are honest In their mo

belonging to tho parly iu power they
could have been the recipients of otli
cial patronage and Presidential pref
erences. And whoro they refused it,
(See Plcusanton's exposision of Grant's
attempt lo steal St. Domingo), they
voluntarily, and without any mone
tary or lfih motive, evacuated their
old camp and turned their gun upon
ils fortifications, because they well
knew buhind those walls was lurking
tlio most dangerous enemy American
liberty and independence ever had.
Money and position wo not strong

ment of an administration that, by its
violulion of Constitutional laws, its
unlawful Congrefsionul enactments,
its system id national robbery, its
frauds and thieving peculations and
its grinding and impoverishing syt
teiu of taxation, was hastening our
once great and prosperous country to
bankruptcy und financial ruin.

this is tlio truo and correct view to1
1 ako of the issue, and it is tho result

Then I regard it at simply our duly,

Although Pennsylvania haSj nt tho
