The speech of General Grant joia,
rece,iving the certificate of.hia*C'-'
tion to the position of President, is
pregnant with wisdom such as we
may alWays expect from the greatest
man of his era.
• 'The surprise expressed . 'I3Y some
that he does not announce his appoint
ments of Cabinet 'officers, exhibits
ignorance of the action of preceding
Presidents. General Grant is only
doing what has been done by all his
predecessors, in witholding from the
public the names of his Cabinet offi
cers until the eve of his inauguration.
General Jackson, for example, reach
ed Washington on the 11th of Feb
ruary, 1829, and it was not until the
27th that the lntelligencer published,
semi-officially, the probable list of
the Cabinet,and two of the gentlemen
thus named were afterwards chang
ed. General Harrison reached Wash-
ington on the 9th of February, 1841,
and his Cabinet was announced on
the 13th. Mr. Polk arrived at the
capitol on the 13th of Febrtiary,lB4s,
but his Cabinet was neither announc
ed nor formed until after the Ist of
March. :,General Taylor reached
Washington on the 23d of February,
1849, but it was not till the 311 of
March that the newspapersansounced
of whom hie Cabinet would be com•
posed. General Pierce arrived at
Washington on the 21st of February,
1853 ; four days previotisly, on the
ITtb, a list was published intended
as a feeler—but the whole was
changed with a single exception,and
no official announcement of the Cabi
net appeared until the appointments
were actually made
sir We have no disposition to in
terfere in the affairs of the Democra
cy, but we hear frequent inquiries as
to the reason_ why the Argus does,
not hoist the name of Hon. Wm. Et-
Irma. as the choice of the Demperacy
of this County for the nomination as
Supreme Judge. The late Democrat
ic Convention we are informrd, pass
ed a resolution recommending Mr.
ELWELL for that honor, and also in
favor of Mr., PACKER for Governor.
The. Argus flies Mr. Peel= lat its
mast-head but leaves Mr. ELWELL
out in the cold. Has Mr. 'PACKER
more friends in Bradford thnn Mr.
Faxem.--or does it not suit the plans
of the leaders here, that the latter
should be honored in his native coun
&MOM -A most terrible disaster
occurred to the Austrian frigate Rad
elzky, in the Adriatic, on Saturday
From some unexplained cause an ex
plosion occurred in the powder-maga
zine, which tore the ship literally to
pieces. Nearly all the officers and
crew were either killed outright_by
the explosion or were thrown into
the sea and drowned. The 'ship is
said to be a complete wreck.l
The right of the people to, assem
ble in public meetinsa is noW denied
in France. In accordance with an
order issued by the Secretary of the
Interim:, a public meeting in the nu
burba of Paris was dispersed on Fri
day. Those announced for Wednes
day next will be prohibited. Gen.
Dix publishes a letter denying the re
port that he recently made a speech
sympathizing with the Greeks.
The Duke de Montpensier has been
granted permission toveturfto Spain
as a private citizen. '
A French frigate has been ordered
to Cuba to protect .the rights of
French citizens.
se.. It is asserted by the New
Yorifjournall that no similar period
of time has been so fruitful in daring
robberies and burglaries in the city
as the past ten days. All the crimi
nals of the country, it is stated, have
made a prec mcerted raid on the me
tropolis. Tho audacity and boldness
of the robbers
_and burglars are re
ported to be unparalleled, and the
arrest of any of their number, it iA
contended,' has apparently no e ct
in deterring the remainder. Th ope
.rations of the law in New Y rk are
ordinarily so slow, that th enter
tain hopes of escape even so unfor
tunate as to be arrested The courts
are, ` therefore, advise to enforce the
law with vigor, an one judge is
pecially praised f disposing of over
one hundred ca es of felony within
three weeks' *me. ‘,
THE M s : art OF Du. &W LL.—The
New "i',)k World publishes the de
tails , a confession said to have
bee made by Charles Jefferds to a
de •ctive, , proving that ho (Jefferds)
`as the actual murderer of Dr. Bur
den in 1857. Jefferds was convicted
of the murder of Walton and Mat
thews in 1860, but the sentence of
death Was never carried into execu
tion. Jefferds vas himself killed in
Sing Sing a few months since by a
fellow-convict, now awaiting trial for
murder. The confession was made
several years since, and is now for
the first time given to the public.
The Cretan question is at
last decisively settled by the submis
sion of all the insurgents to Turkish
authority, agreeable to the rule of
the Parfs Conference. The right of
the case unquestionably justifies this
conclusion ; as Crete was a depen
dency of Turkey and the rebellion
there was promoted and 'aided from
the main :Ladd. Still many will re
gret learniug that the Mohammedan
Power has - re-established itself More
firmly on u part of the natural limits
Greece. Concurrently with the
ciskin tlf this, the cause of creek
troubles,- it is annonnoed that the
new Greek- ministry had revoked

Preparations are actively being made for
the inauguration of General Grant and
Schuyler Colfax, as President and Vice-
President, on the fourth of Much. The
wooden structure is being pat up about the
main portico of the eastern front cf the
.Capitol, so as to form an extended platform,
upon which the oath of office, is to be ad
ministered to the President elect, at such
an elevation as to be in full view of - the
multitude standing below in the public•
grounds surrounding_ the Capitol. If the
day is a fair one, the scene will be moat im
posing and grand. The several different
organizations, military, Civil, and fire de
partments, of this, and neighboring cities,
will be present and join in procession, in
such order as may be , prescribed by the
committee of arrangements. A joint sea
olntion passed on Saturday last, postpones
the meeting of both Houses for the organi
zation of the 41st Congress from 12 o'clock
noon. until.,3 o'clock, p. m. on the 4th of
March, in order to permit members of Con
gress to participate in the inauguration
How significant the impressive words of
General Grant, closing his letter of accept
ance of the nomination for President, so
unanimously tendered him' by the repre
sentatives of the great party who Saved the
country in the time of its peril : " Let us
have peace!" . Since his election, the tur
bulent embers of the conquered r.bellion,
which had been fanned and fed into such
force by the encouragement offered by An
drew Johnson, and by the revolutionary
spirit manifested by . the so-called, demo
cratic national convention, which nomina
ted Seymour and Blair, as to be almost
ready to break out into a new flame, have
gently subsided, and give evidence of their ,
appieciatfon of the m ghty power of a free
and loyal people in bringing the country
to a permanent and enduring peace and
prosperity, which will be doubly assured
by an administration of four years, by the
great Captain who led the loyal army of
the Union to snccessi
How different would have been the con
dition of things nor; had Seymour and
tilair been elected, and the slumbering ele
ments of rebellion made powerful by the
hope of triumph under an administration
fully in sympathy with their 'cause? L' t
every loyal heart, thank God, and take
courage. The struggle has not been in
vain. Mistakes may have been made b
the great Republican party, but imam • y
is fallible, and what patriot will not a use
slight mistakes, in a great party w• o has
saved the country from threatened dissolu
tion ? Where errors have been ... de, they
may now be corrected, and w.: may hope
that the party in power will . o its utmost
to restore the country to . firm financial,
and tranquil basis, in all especte..
Emigratiqn is rapidl . tending South from
the north, and mo especially into the
State of Virginia. 'airfax county, of my
personal knowl- .ge is rapidly filling up

prosperity and intelligence.
The ruling element of Andrew Johnson's
administration, is still strong in its dyin -
hour. He has lately pardoned Dr. Mudd,
one of the conspirators in the murder of
President Lincoln, and is almciat daily par
doning criminals who have been convicted
of frauds on the revenue, counterfeiting
the national currency, frauds at elections{
and other crimes. But 'a few days since,
Mr. Dempsey, of the firm of Dempsey &
O'Toole, who were contractors for supply
ing the stationery for the Interior Depart
ment, (which contract was abrogated. by
Congress on account:of gross frauds,) was
convicted in the Criminal Court of this city,
of committing a flagrant assault upon - Geri.
Samuel Duncan, Astistent Oommissdoner of
Patents who had given evidence against
Dempsey in the contract case, and was sen
tenced by Judge Fisher to imprisonment
in the city jail for tea days, and the pay
ment of a penalty of 1200. No sooner had
the sentence of the Court been promul
gated, than the pardon of the criminal by
Andrew Johnson was forthcoming, and the
prisoner set at liberty.' .
The tide of moral pollution which has
grown so fearfully wicked and strong under
his administration, is evidenced by the
revenue frauds, the election frauds in ,New
York, the murders, riois,aill assassinations, .
south, let us hope, is about to be arrested,
and a better and more tranquil order of
