ME Buffalo Commercial, which had the
misfortune of turning .over to the Radical
side just at the wrong time; endeavors to ex
plain the defeat of its party in :Nov York
upon the following hypothesis: "It was the
result of a loosening of the 'strong cohesion
of patriotism in the prese.nceof national &Mi.
ger; a reversion of popular thought and ac
tion from the necessary Unanimity of war, 16
the requirements Of peace." Thinking that
this is not as clear us it might- be, we will
endeavor to pat the' Commercial's argument
in plainer language : "It was the eventuation
of the cathartic etilict of the great hypothe
neuse of the rhomboid, knoekedendways. by
the concatenation of events falling upon the
perpendicular of the , egccient of the Repub
lican platform." Our readers will perceive
that the explanation is perfectly lucid and
eatisihetory. •
Mits. LINCOLN'S PoWERTY.—The question
in regard to 'Mrs. Lincoln's circumstances has
been at length satisfactorily disposed of
On Thuriday of week, llon. David Da
vis, of - the 'Supreme Court, Mr. Lincoln's ex
ecutor, made a final settlement of the estate
at Springfield, 111. After paying all debts,
Mr. Davis reports
,the sum of tlO `207 re
maining; to be distributed among the heirs.
Of this amount Mrs. Lincoln receive one
third, $36,70.5.30, and Robert T. Lincoln and
'Thomas Lincoln,a
the two surviving sons,
each the same amount. The tlebWof Mr.
LincOln, as filed in the County Clerk's office,
amount to :%k,38.31. The position of Mrs. Lin
coln, after this disclosure, is anything but
honorable. Thirty-seven thousrmd dollars is
a large sum in the eyes of most people, and
it is certainirodd that Mrs. Lincoln should
have made such piteous complaints of her
poverty with the knowledge of that amount
being due to her. The public have a very
different opinion of the Lincoln funny now
from what they had during the war.
' Our readers will remember that a -couple
weeks . ago we - ETllblished a letter from the
commanding officer at Fort Delaware, near
Philadelphia, showing that the agent ap
pointed hr Gov. Cleary to take the vott.s of
the Pennsylvania soltlic , rsi fin the Fort, bad
committed a gross and criminal fraud. -The
Philadelphia Age has since given the matter
a thrlitglfinvestigation, and last Week pub
lished several columns of official documents,
signed. and sworn to by officers of, every
grade in the Fort, exposing the scheme
in , its features. The following facts
o clearly, proved that no Republican
journal in Philadelphia has dared -to excuse,
much less deny, them : Four persons only,
three of them minors, and not one of them a
resident in Pennsylvania, voted in company
L The fabricated returns reinvented that
.sixty persona voted: The poll book sets out
the names of these sixty voters. Fifty-four
of these aiIITIWS are fictliious. Twenty-eight
-persons (only six of then enlisted In Penn
sylvania) : voted in company K. The fabrica
ted returns represent that sixty-three persons
voted, fifty-four of which arc fictitious. It
thus appears that only 32 soldiers voted in all,
of whom but six-had ever been citizens of
Pennsylvania. while GOY. Geary's agent re
ported 12:1, all in favor of -the Radical ticket,
The return of the fraudulent votes was duly
accepted by the Radical majo.rity of election
officers in Philadelphia, and counted by the
, Secretary of the Commonwealth in making
up his State table, and by Governor Geary in
his proclamation of the result. If deducted,
as it 'should be, from the total vote of the
State, Judge Sharswood's majority would be
about 1100.
One of the features of the late elections
deserving of especial attention, is the signifi
cant manner iri which Radicalism hits been
rebuked in the . .geat business centres of the
country. Last year the city of Boston gave
a large Radical majority; this year it gave
Joint Quincy Adams, the Democratic candi
date for Governor; a majority of fifteen hun
dred votes, New York city, always true to
the principles of the Constitution, has in
creased her heady Democratic majority of .
- 64W:by about fourteen thousand. In Phila
delphia the reaction was still more remark
able, the, heavy Radical- preponderance of
front six to ten thousand during the war, be
iog changed this year to a Democratic excess
of from three to four thousand. Baltimore
shows a very large Conservative gain, even
over its ordinary overwhelming Democratic
majority, Similarresults are seen in the votes
of Brooklyn, Albany, Pittsburgh, Buffalo,
Troy, Cincinnati, Cleveland and Chic:igo,
• These are not chance results. The cities
we have instanced are the great business cen
tresl ofd le North; in them dwell the solid
litlyn" (.4 the nation ; their population repre
sents probably one-half the wealth of the
Northern States; their verdict is too plain to
be- anisinterpreted, The. business men of
Amerk!a, those who keep in motion the blood
11f the nation and without whose energy we
would stagnate, have conic tofully realize the
trutit'that a longer continuance of the Radi
cal party in power will be followed by the
'most disastrous conse l quences to the material
interests of the whole c r in n try.
Ever since the D6mocruts began the victo
btsineAs therirhas been a cteady decline
in prices, which is so contrary to all the
predictions made by Radical prophets before
I.ltelectiotis that they stand amazed at the
folly of their assertions. At the clothing
houses in New York city suits arc sold, good
and bad, almost as cheap as they were five
years ago ; and in every business street piles
.of dry goods are ticketed front 50 to 100 per
cent, below the prices asked for the same
goods in ISGS. Calicoes at 12 1-2 cents a
yard ; muslins 10 to 18 cents ; 'delaines at
18 3-4 Cenis; dress goods from 25 to 50 cents,
and all kinds of costlier. fabrics at prices that
Indicate a heavy loss to some One. The de
cline is severely felt by importers, jobbers
and agents, and some of them are out of

with these exceptions it is much cheailer liv

continue the victory business next fall, we
expect to see prices very near the old stand

“THE PULPIT'S bi'PO/Vr UNr/erg”
Among conetlerate imen the Orb?* has
long been current - that the' greatestolintaele
in the path ofireligiotk,in opr country, for
the past si* otten seats; has been the nause
ous practice of political preaching. The
person must he little versed in practical ex
perience who cannot see that it has been the
pnalitletause pf infidelity not only outside
./af the ,elturela..but 11.5 ,pale,;, pot Aals,
in the pews but in the pulpits.! At. first it
was a curious novelty,' and pastors found
their congregations increased l perhaps, a
hundred fold.. Men- flocked to t the political
churches 11.5 they went to the opera, the thea
tre, or the circus, to he excited and amused.
They could applaud and - they could laugh
there at every smart political hl, freely and
without rebuke. It was religion made easy,
and, like virtue made easy, there was very
little of it left when you came trylook for it .
We are satisfied 'that the majority of these
pastors who have mixed politics with their
theology, in the proportion, of nine to one,
for some years back, have done it against
their hetter•judgmen't. They have yielded
to the fashion of the times,to the example of
powerful and suecessful preachers, to the
real and supposed irresistable current of
feeling in their eongreptions. We have al
ways held them, as a class, tci be above the
sordid aims of politicians. They haVe not
preached politics for money, nor for vulgar
applause; but because they had not sufficient
moral strength to resist the tremendous pres
sure which was brought to hear upon them
by church conventions and assemblies, and
hy active and influential occupants of the
pews. In some instances the pressure from
the pews was not real, but imaginary. The
pastor, observing the tendency in other
churches, sought to anticipate it in his own,
and with unnecessary precipitation, put him
self at the•head of his flock and led it into •
polities. Satiety in the congregation soon
followed excess in the preacher. The outside
attendance fell, Off; ninny of the pew-holders
who had liked the thing while it was new,
got sick ()fit last, and these preachers finally
found themselves in the condition of men,
Nvlio, having take» a false Position, feel com
pelled out of regard to consistency,,to main
lain it at all hazzards. In this resolve they
have been encouraged and sustainedby small
but active knots of politicians, who give'the
tone to many of our churches. There are
clergymen we could name who have seen
their flocks scattered beyond
and their churches sold and turned into
places of amusement before they would con
sent to retrace their steps to religion pure
and undefiled. , t
We have referred to this subject before,
and now return to it, because the„preseut
seems an appropriate time for a concerted
movement on the part of the true friends of
the, church for rooting the practice out ofour
system of religious worship. The political
reaction, of whigh we see the signs all-around
us, is no less - a protest against* political
preaching than against the numerous other
fallacies of Radicalism. The feeling facets
all classes of society, in all their relations.
We believe that; if a show of hands were
called for in the churches next Sunday, a
majority, of votes would he found in favor of
exchtiling polities front the. pulpit front' this
day on forever, let what circumstances mar
come up in the career of the nation. Pastors
would be surprised to discover how cheer
fully their people would now follow their
leader out of the miry paths of politics back
to the ancient trodden ways. They must, by
this time, be satisfied that it is impossible to
get out of radical politics by going to the end
[of it—for it has no end. The possible
crotchets of the Radical mind are infinite.
Political preachers never can say that . their
work is done, and lay off their harness. "Ex
celsior!" is still the eryond aln aye will be,
of the frantic agitators who occupy the Vail
of Radical movements, They care nothing
for the church, except as,it aids them in their
dangerous ventures. While they use it they
despise it. This fitct is made very clear in
the last number of Wendell Phillips organ,
which says,:"Clturches and the elerity
as formerly, for the most part but make
weights or a positive drag where they should
be foremost in leading the nation in the light
of immutable, ftindamenntl Christian princi
ples through its present diflieult and dan
gerous pass." This is the gratitiule which
the political clergy receive from those who
have sdught to dictate their style of- preaCh
ing for a number of years. How mitelt long
er will ministers of the Go•;)pel submit to
these hardest task-masters
The papers continue to 'be fall of para
gtaphs about Gen. Grant, his acts, sayings
and opinions. As in the Past, each writer
claims Mai to endorse the particular views
whicli.he himself holds, and. the much moot
ed question of his political sttlniling remains
in as niuch mystery as c% er. The Washing

" The debt between the friends of Judge

its foundation the rich efpfme Made by your

damaged his own cause Judge Kelley, of
Philadelphia, bas written a letter, in which
lie says that Grant will not carry a State un
less the platform he stands on will recognize

The same writer states that the General

Galveston, that his people wanted to run hits
for President, and asked him what he should

the remark that both parties seemed deter

everything I wish—T want nothing but to be

It is further stated that Postmaster General
Randall twitted Gen. Grant, the 'other day, -
about Wade's complaint of his silence—that
he (Grant) could talk nothing but "horse."
Grant replied that he usually talked About
matters that he understood, adding'. "And I

'lt is not so very long since thelpopalarery
in political contests used to be "measures,
not men." 'Mr. Andrew Johnson was nomi
nated for Vice-President of the United States
in are/inhume with the false principle em
bodied in that cry. The disfistnins resnit of
the experiment seems to be driving some of
am friends to the opposite extreme; and,
with the equally dangerous watchword of
"men, not - measures," they are bent upon
intritsting our national destinic4) a general
of whose political principles nothing what
ev,w is known; and confiding the Most deli ;
cate Tune' ions of statesmanship to a man who
has thus Mr shown himself only as a resolute
and successful soldier. - We have been 'at
some paini to collect all the aCcessible evi
dence as to General Grant's- opinions on the
great questions which divide }he country,
and the 'decision of which must shape -41 w
good or for ill our course during the next
Presidential term. We hove itt present a
list of twenty "authoritative" explanations of
the General's position. Nine. represent
as an uncompromising Radical ; nine are
positive that he is a rdraight up*-and-cinUlf
DeMorwat ; nnd'two declare that he is noth
ing at all, and will not accept is nomination
for the Presidency from either Party. Colo
nel Forney, for example. published the other
day,-in his two papers, five mortal columns
of most excellent Republican Sentiment, all
of which lie asserts that he knew on most in
dubitable testimony to be in Grant's head, if
they had not actually come out of his Mouth.'
The Boston Post next day hastened to in,
form us that Grant repudiated every word of
Forney's five columns, and the Philadelphia
Press replied by'an "authorized" contradic
tion of the Post. Tho Philadelphia Post
learns that Grant has no sympathy with the
Radicals. • The Springfield Republican is
certain. that he is substantially in accord with
the party of freedom, only is not so- fool
ish as to accept Colonel Forney as his spokes-.
man. The rebel Mobile Times accepts him
as a Copperhead ; the Macon Telegniph
nounces hint as a Radical; the Richmond
Enquirer believes he is no friend to the nig
ger, while General Rawlins 'vows on the
faith of a soldier that he is the best friend the
nigger ever had. More titan all this, the,
Ron. E. B. Washburne, a thoroughly disM
-terested statesman, whose mission in life is
to get Grant elected President, has made
a long speech to prove that his friend is
'everything the most exacting;toter can re
quire. This Ought,to have settled the whole
business; hut, alas for the - Uncertainty of
human affairs ! Mr. Washburne has no soon
er finishetLhis oration than tql gets that pes
tiferous' Boston Post again, mid avers _ that
Grant "detests" Mr. Washburne, doesn't
know him, wants to get rid !of him, and is
not responsible for any of his statements.
The Washington Chronicle says this is a lie,
and Mr. Wnshburne, we presume, i,t of the
sante opinion. The New York Day Book
thinks any man who doubts Grant to be in
perfect accord 'with Congress, is "green
enough to be eaten ter grass;" and right on
the. heels of this comes a statement in anoth
er Copperhead paper that the General has
accepted a nomination front the Johnson
Democracy. The Copperheads quote his ac
ceptance of Mt... Stallion's place as a proof
That he is a' Democrat ; Colonel Forney
quotes itas a proof that he is a Radical. One
gentleman heard him refer
to the rprooe.l of
Mliertdan as "more of the President's dirty
work ;" and another gentleman learns that
he has taken warning by Sheridan's "ludi
crous fate" and gone over to the Conserva
tive party:
Now we have no relish for getting Presi
dents out of it grab-bag.• We have no sym
pathy with the "hurrah!" Movement which
' hopes to rush a candidate into °Mee, not is.;
eause'lle is fit for the place, not because he
holds to the principles which the party is

man to shout ibr at the 'hustings. We light
to secure eqbal rights for all,men, not to ob
tain the election of any President who can
merely be relied upon to distribute officers to
the Radical party. The election by Radical
votes of a President who was not at heart
and soul identified with Radical principles
would he a greater disaster for us than an
open defeat in an open battle at the polls,
whete the lines were sharply drawn, the
standards boldly displayed, and the gener
als resolutely committed to the cause' in
which they engaged. It is better to be bea
en than betrayed.

seicerk As early as 2p. in. the people Co

They were greeted by their brother Demo

Square. At 8, p. m., Col. J. Ross Thompson
and „G. W. Gunnison, Esq., arrived from
Erie, and were met by a crimmittee. who se
compan ied them to Dix's and Hillard's Hotels,
preceded by the North East Brass Band.
whin enlivened the occasion by some of
their soul stirring music, which they so well
know how to discourse. At 1-2 past Sp.
between three and four hundred persons re
paired to the dining-rooms of the above Ho
tels, and replenished the Miler man with a
splendid supper, consisting' of nn the _season
able good things. After supper, the spacious

noble veteran Democrat, Was elected Presi
dent, with Captain Custard, Robert Marshall
and Lathrop Finn, thr ,Vice Presidents;

Treasurer. Col. J. Rods Thompson was
then introduced to the meeting, who, in his
usual forcible way, portrayed the iniquities
of the party which is trying to reduce the
whites of this nation, to a Condition of negro
suffrage. Following the' Colonel, ;in that.
'happy style which entertains as well as in
structs, G. W. Gunnison, Esq., elucidated in
glowing terms that the only safe position for
the country in its present crisis was to be
found in strict adherence to the Constitution

I 410 not intend that this khort paragraph

merely to state the agreeable disappointment
all of us .have felt here. So very little is
known of its latent wealth and undeveloped

good by giving publicity to, all the reliable
information I can obtain abont it. This I

to by every claw.- of invalids in New

The Charms river flows through this valley,
and at one time it appears tOmve been con

striking feature of the conntry referred to is
its.aaekoior table lands,--They look as if their
surface at one time marked the original r;le'-
valiort of the country. The: average height
of the mesas is.about three hundred feet, and
in some eases they are many miles in circum

'note that they arc covered with woof pals, the

tioned them to state that San Juan was built

owing`to the changes in the bed of the river
it is noii three miles back, while Santa Cruz,
on the t•ast side, which was originally four
miles 'from the river, is now within three

nearer. Such changes only occur where the

better to Ray "they are tamed," for their man

Indians are said to he the descendants of the
Aztecs, who were driven north and after

question the truth of this statement, for. the
following reasons: There are some seven
thousand Pueblo 'lndians scattered along MI
Rio Grande for three hundred miles. They
live in seventeen communities or villages,
(Parbb.). and, with the exception of two vil

ass the sun rises they look to the East, and the
old men stand on the chapel tower to an

the writer that "he - believed the Pueblos still
