'resident (;rant has more than intima
ted that while the Civil Tenure act stands,
he will vigorously enforce it, although
such a course would materially retard the
proposed and desired changes in the offi
ces.. Under the law, no officer can be re
moved for political reasms—only those
who can be removed on charges of incom
petency or (nfaithfulness. It is possible,
therefore, that the Senate will have to act
first, and it may be well feu• the noble
army of office seekers to turn their bat
teries in that direction.
Mr. George H. Stuart came here, at the
instance of the President, with Mr. Boric,
Secretary of the Navy. He had a long
interview with the President. Ile is re
garded as a man of influence with Presi
dent Grant, and swarms of office-seekers
have been after him since his arrival, to
get letters to the President. He positively
declined, however, to write any letters, or
affix his name to any recom►nendations.
A delegation of about twenty members
of the Irish Republican Association of the
United States, headed by Major Haggerty,
of New York, called on the President last
Saturday, to tender their congratulations,
and to pledge to the President the united
support of the Irish Republicans to his
Administration. They were admitted
and introduced by name, and shook the
President by the hand.
Vice-President Colfax has most favor
ably impressed the Senate with his high
administrative abilities. Ills talents and
special gifts as a presiding officer in the
highest p:)sition in the country cannot
well be overestimated. He knows what
he is about, and the time has come when
such men only should have official place,
either as Presidents, Vice-Presidents, or
The ruling passion of Johnson to par

and hue, was beautifully illustrated"

Mr. James G. Blaine, of Maine, Mr.
Colfitx's successor in the Speaker's chair,
is a man highly qualified for the place by
his urbane manners, his familiarity with
parliamentary law, and his devotion to
the principles of freedom.
It is generally understood that the as

President Grant has requested the So
ciety of Friends to furnish him a list of
persons they can recommend for Indian
Agents. This is truly a novel beginning,
and a revolution as complete as was ever
seen in any department of the government.
From the days of yore to the present time,
Indian Agents have, as a general thing,
been license thieves; and this class of
public servants and the rings they repre
sent, will no doubt he intensely disgusted
with Grant for consulting the Quakers.

BEST'S FRUIT TREE INVIGORATOR
AND INSECT DESTROYER
It is the most useful combination of ingre
dients ever known for Fruit, and the evidence
we can prod tee from men of the highest stand
ing in society of the henefitsto bo derived from
its use in Fruit Trees, Vines, Wheat, Corn, Mow
ers, and all kinds of Vegetation, cannot be
doubted by any honest man. When applied to
trees, it penetrates every pore, destroying the
worm in the 'matt of the tree, and by connect
ing with the mineral substance of the earth,
destroys the cause and prevents the creation of
any destructive insects. It will prevent Curcu
lie from stinging the plum, and every person
using it will have sounfl plums. It will kill the
peach grub, and make peach trees bear healthy
fruit. It will prevent dry-rot in grapes. It
swells the tree causing the old bark to peel oil
front the body, while a beautiful new green
bark takes its place. It will kill potato bugs
and prevents potato tot. It will prevent weavel,
mill-dew. or rust in wheat, and prevent the fly
from touching it. It destroys the cut-worm ut
corn--in tact, it will kill any kind of insects that
attack Fruit Trees bind cause all Fruit Trees to
bear sound fruit. It is now extensively need in
the Western states. and those who have used it
would not he without it, for a thousand times
its cost. It has been used in the southern parts
of Berks County, this state, on grain. trees, twc.,
and there Las not been a single failure. Any
person wishing to see its effect upon growing
grain and frult,can be gratified bycallingon us,
or by writing, and wo will refer them to per
sons (with residence) who are using it. We
warrant it to do just what we claim for it. To
be used as soon as the frost is out of the ground.
