Now that Seeretary Chase is out of offioe
and has no more patronage to bestow,
many of the papers and politicians which
before sustained him, have, to - use Old
Abe's model expression, "turned tail and
run" into the rankle of his enemies. Elton
those that still make a pretence of ,
friendly to him " damn him with -faint
ptaise"--so -faint indeed that we - find it
hard to decide whether it is really inten
ded. for compliment or sarossin. Ai a
specimen of the general style we quote
the following from the Philadelphia &Be-

of the Treasury. and Hon. David Tod, of
Ohio, succeeds him. Thii intelligenoe will

Mr. Chase will doubtless find the infor
mation very consoling that, although he
"hu shown great Ability," yet "it will be
found that the change is advantageous."
Perhaps, too, like Mr. Lineoln, he will be
reminded of a little story—something, for
instance, like that of the. honest Quaker,
who. about te'discharge one of his hands,
wished to do it in the least offensive Way.
and thus remarked to him : ". William,
thou hest served me long and well ; , thou
halt tended faithfully to the cattle; thou
had been one of my best hands ; but the
fact is, William—that is, William—met
thinks it will do thee some good to go
about the world a little." But if the Bul
letin's treatment of the Ex-Secretary is un
kind, what will he think of the following
broadside ffom 'the Albany Journd, over
the familiar signature of the old wsr•hor?e
of Republicanistn. in that State, Thurlow:
Weed ?
The people will breathe more freely—
hope. almost worn out, will revive with
the intelligence of to-asp-11r. Chase out
of. and Governor Tod in. the Tressary- De
partment ! Heaven be raised tor this
gleam of national sunshine. It is more
precious even than a military victory. It

which has so long shrouded the political

'ions of fear that the "country would be
ruined if Abraham Lincoln should be re
elected." He was a Democrat, not of the
Daniel S. Dickenson but of the James
Buchanan stripe. We beg to commend
to him. and to all of his way' of thinking,
the remark of Hon. J. L. M. Qtrry, the
secession leader in Alabama, in a recent
speech, that "if Lincoln should be re
elected our fond .hopes will be dashed to
_ the ground." In other words. if Mr. Lin
coln is retained, in his present potation
longer than the 4th of Mare next, the
rebellion will prove a signal failure."—

The striking out of :the ernismufithan

view, the House covered itself with con

disheartening signs of the times is the ut

become mere appendages or registering

The rebels have undertaken another
raid into Maryland and Pennsylvania.
Their force, at first estimated aOront five
to twelve thousand, was, by last_:dispstch

entire corps of Lee's army. It is led by
Gen. Early, who succeeds Ewell in com

the rebels quickly followed him, and at
