more is necessary than mere dependence up
on the!truth of our principles. In the flush
of self-confidence, we are apt to forget what
a vigilant enemy we have to overcome, and
- what desperate measures he is apt to resort to
to attain his ends. Political battles, like those
of a more bloody nature, depend for,their re

and energy of the contesting foes than upon the
sacredness of their cause, or the convictions of

We must be thoroughly organized and pre
pared for the 'campaign. Every man must
consider that he owes a perxonal duty in the
matter, as indeed he does, for there is no one
so humble, but he is in some way more or less
concerned to the issues at stake. All the
districts must be canvassed, so that we noiy
know where it will be most advantageous to
employ our energies. The young men must
be encouraged to lend a helping hand. Those
who have been led estray must be brought
back to the fold, and Democratic arguments
placed in their reach, that they may know
the distinctive questions which divide par
'ties, and no longer be misled by the wiles and
falsehoods of the Opposition. •

many places the contrast is si) great as al
most to amount to a disgrace.

Ills Claims to.Patilie Favor An-
(Prom the N. Y. World.]
It a backwoodsman should insist on using
an axe to cut his crop of grain, instead of a
sickle, because the axe had rendered good
service in felling the forest that stood upon
the sense ground the preceding year, nobody
would be apt to think well of his judgment
in the selection of a utensil. As we are not
to have a war, there is less fitness in the se
lection of a general, than of a statesman, as
candidate for President. General Grant has
been nominated solely in consequence of his
military reputation. Waiving, for the pres
ent, the fundamental objection that the in
strument is not adapted to the proposed use,
and that the Presidency, during the next
term, will afford no scope for the exertion of
military talents, we challenge inquiry into
the grounds of General Grant's fame as a sol
dier. We suppose none of his friends will
seriously maintain that ho is entitled to be
called a great general therely because he has
commanded great armies, much less because
he has exposed and lost in battle great multi
tudes of men: His reputation rests upon the
fact that all his campaigns have been success
ful. But success against such adversaries as
Pillow or Pemberton in the - West is no very
signal proof of abilities, unless they com
manded greater forces ; which they. did not.
General Lee was a more worthy antagonist ;
but General Lee was not conquered by fight
ing him, but by exhausting his resources.
Ile stood on the defensive for nearly a year
after Grant assumed command in the East,
although the Confederacy was even then,
when Grant crossed the Rapidan, tottering
and well-nigh spent by three years' exertion
in a strenuous and unequal struggle. It is
certainly just to credit Grant with the cap
ture of Lee ; but there is a debit as well as a
credit side to the account. What General
Scott called "the economy of life by means
of hard work," will be sought for in vain in
the campaigns of General Grant. His suc
cesses have been won by a prodigal expetli- -
ture of his soldiers. In his last and greatest
campaign lie pitted au enormous army
against a small one, and sacrificed twice as
many men as General Lee bad under his
conunand. It is not justice but adulation, to
praise him as if he had conquered an army
as large as his own. _ It is not justice but an
affront to humanity to give him as much
credit as if he had achieved the same result
without suck wholesale sacrifices -of men.

the respective forces and losses of General
Grant and Lee between the Rapidan and the

We have had some experience before of
running successful generals as candidates for
tho Presidency; but their achievements
were, in this particular, a great contrast to
those of General Grant. General Jackson
won his brilliant victory at New Orleans with
7.000 men against a British army of 12,000.
General Taylor had but about 6,000. men at
Buena Vista, and the Mexicans twice or
thrico that number. General Scott had
67,00 at Cerro Gordo, the Mexicans 12,000.
The splendid victory of Contreras was

Mexicanq. • •
[Front the Phil.% Age.)
On the 10th of March, 1834, Grant, in pur
suance of an act of Congress,, took command
of the armies of the United States, then re
ported as one million of men. For his move
ment against Richmond he used Butler's
army of 30,000: Slegel's of 17,000, and the
Army of the Potomac, 140,000. Lee's army
amounted to 52,620 men (see Swinton's Army
of the Potomac.) If the Array of the Poto
mac met terrible obstacles in its route to
Richmond, it was more the fault of Grant
than of Lee. It was Grant who allowed that
route to be prescribed to his army. And
this shows a weakness in his cbaracter,a sub
serviency to politicians, which, now, must '
not pass unnoticed. A . movement on Rich- 1
mond, by water, was the obvious, easy . way
to reach it. Grant gave his decided opinion
in favor of it (Swinton, page 405.) Ho was
turned from it by the politicians. They did
not want hint to carryout McClellan's plan.
He yielded to them, and the result is known.
Every step on the overland route proved it a
bloody, disastrous blunder. After twelve
day's waste of life at Spottsylvania, Grant
marched away front those impenetrable
lines ;'his loss there and in the Wilderness
was more than 40,000 men. 13,000 fell in as
fruitless an attack at Cold Harbor. 117,000
men was the total loss entailed by Grant's
subserviency to the politicians, in taking
their route to Richmond. When he at last
reached the James River, he wanted a new
army. In reinforcements he received 97,000
men. With these and the converging army
of Sherman ho reduced Richmond. But
when? His often quoted boast of "fight
ing it oat on this line, if it took all summer,"
spoke ill for his military sagacity. It was
like Mr. Seward's exer recurring prediction
of "peace in thirty days." It took Grant all
summer, all autumn, all winter;sand all the
spring of the next year to get into Richmond.
He entered it in April,ISCZ. With his' force
nnwasted, he could have captured it front
the headwaters of the James or the York
River, in a few days or weeks, with little or
no loss of life. By the course he took he did
not even cover Washington. It was never
• in greater danger than from Early's—march
oast in July, 1864.
We recur to these things in no spirit of de
traction, but in justice to the living and the
dead, whom Grant's flatterers depreciate.
Show us in this campaign a' single gleam of
that military acnins ichkl, attain: ;7,lmi it--
sults with small means, or of that "headwork
that spares human 'Ai." For the nectwarY
effusion of blood in war, the General is not
answerable; for the unskillful waste of life
-he is responsible—at least in the estimate of
his claims and his abilities. We rank Grant
below Scott, in all the essentials of a great
commander. If Grant is tole classified with
other generals, it must be with the liassian
Suwarrow, or the Oriental conquerors wii"W
thought any advantage cheaply purchased,
if it cost only the blood of their men. His
capacity is limited in military affairs ; helm
no capacity at all for civil affairs. Ills per
sonal habitsare disreputable. There is no
man more unfit to be President of the United
States. Not only is he "unaccustomed to
public speaking;' he is unaccustomed to
speaking or thinking of anything serious ; lie
is wholly ignorant and careless of the prin
ciples of free government; ho is a mere tool
in the hands of the clique of politicians who
have him in charge. ale let them formally
put forth his opinion as "the General of the
Army" to influence the High Court to con
vict the President. "A General of the Army"
thus ignorant of his proper relation to the
administration of civil justice, can know little
of the government and laws under which he
lives, and is surely not to he trusted with the
defense and execution of them as President
of the United States.
tiVentlell Phillips' Letter on his Intem
Phillips, the avant courier of Rad
icalffin, has printed the accusation of drunk
enness against Grant, time after time, whilst
Anna Dickinson, the Radical leeturess, has
made it before a dozen audiences. We ap
pend a letter written by Wendell Phillips,
copied from the Anti-Shivery Standard, of
April 11, upon this subject :
So of Grant's intemperance. We think the
evidence was sufficient before. But if any
thing in the way of proof was lacking, it is
amply supplied by a speech of Mr. Dodge,,of
New York, tlie President of the National
Temperance Society, and by the letter of
Mr. Senator Wilson, published in the Boston
Daily Advertiser, April 1.
Mr. Dodge has been in Washington, and
assures temperance men they need have no
fears. He knows of the reports of the Gen
eral's recently published intoxication. At
such a moment, and speaking as an officer
'of a temperance society, Mr. Dodge would
•have denied the truth of those reports if he
had been able to do so. His omission to do
that, and the evasive, general terms in which
he indulges, will convince any thoughtful
letotaller that Mr. Dodge knows and- feels
that he cannot deny the General's intemper
ance. He has schooled himself into think
ing that it -does not amount to enough to
peril the State, and hence, letting his party
feelink overrideiis temperance principles,
he is willing
.20 run the risk. What we
claiM, is, that, before he asks us to run the
risk, he should let us know the exact facts.
Then we will decide whether to run it ornot.
Mr. Wilson's letter is even more charac
teristic, and therefore more evasive. lie, too,
knows of the reports of Grant's public
drunkenness on a particular day in last Jan
uary. If we mistake not, these reports were
brought more than once to his notice. In
his letter he says : "I have seen General
Grant in camp, in his office, at his own house,
and at dinner parties where liquors were
freely used by others, but have never seen
him drink even a glass of wine, nor have I
ever seerthim when I had the slightest rea
son to think he was in any degree under the
influence of drink."
Of course, no doubt. We can bringlo,ooo
people in that very city of Washington who
never saw Grant drunk. There are 10,000,-
000 in the North who never saw Grant
drunk. We never saw Grant drunk or sober.
But Mr. Wilson knows well that the country
never asked him, as a prominent tetotaller,
whether he had seen Grant drunk. The
question was, "Sir, living in Washington,
knowing the facts or easily able to know
them, what, are the facts as to these alleged
public exposures of your Presidential candi
date':" Mr. Senator Wilson undertakes to
'answer that question. His answer is .he
never saw Grant drunk. If any shrewd faw
yer had, in such circumstances, received
from a witness such an answer, he would
have askeakno further question ; but taken it
for granted and argued to the jury, that the
witness substantially admitted the drunken
ness. To us no further evidence is necessa
ry. Knowing Henry . Wilson, we see in this
equivocation convincing evidence that lie
cannot and dares not deny that he has heard
from trustworthy sources of this public
drunken exposure of his candidate. Mr.
Wilson's course on this occasion is precisely
the same he pursued a year ago, when, hav
ing originated a report as to the drunken
ness of a 0 ftssachusetts Congressman, and
afraid to meet the consequences, lie equivo
cated himself out of the responsibility. >row,
when all that Congressman cconstitnents ad
mit his inioxik •Ltion, it is ...A pr. );)able that
Mr. Wilson would it worth while to
sltuflle. If Grant as .'resident,-should show
himself, in Mr. Dodge's felicitous languag,e,
"fully capable of filling Andy Johnson's
place." drunkenness and all: or when Grant
is thrown aside, because he had been Presi
dent, or is not needed for that office, we -shall
hear the absolute truth about his vice even
from Henry Wilson. Now when the tem
perance body need his knowledge, he obeys
that same law of timid self-preservation
which shocked his admirers when it carried
him selfishly into the Know-nothing party
to save his place. We call this letter equivo
cation. It is a mild phrase considering the
vast peril, and the value the writer professes
to set on temperance. We should be amply
justified in describing it by a much stronger
term. And the constant repetition of this
offense by this public servant ,seems almost
to call for such fraud descriptiOis.
In view of this element in His career, the
success of Mr. Wilson is one tt - P the most
alarming results of Democratic institutions;
sad evidence of how often they throw worth
less men to the top.

the United States, with intent to asurp tiV
powers of the Government for the prirpfro
of self - aggrandizement and to pc pr tome. tlt
powers of the infamous "Rump," and it v. a•
further charged, that although the defendant
was one of the judges of impeachment under
the Constitution, lie publicly condemned the
President without evidence. and in advance
of the proposed trial.
2. That as one of the ringleaders of the
sect of Republicans, he conspired as :num
sald to overthrow the laws of property, La
which every man has secured to himself the
prdduct of his own hard earnings, with in
tent to establish the agrarian rule, that all
property shall be
.equally divided amongst
men, and that therefore, the virtuous, Wu,-
trious and thrifty citizen should divide with
the vicious, idle and thriftless, every Satur
day night, and oftener if necessary, the col
nred."en-.4' to have the largest chars, if 110--
3. That he advocated the monstrous doe.
trine of, negro equality, and the interming
ling of the races ; whereby lie intended to
debase and degrade the white to thelevel of
the black man, and in furtherance of this
terrible purpose, he designed to give the Mark
man the ballot box, the jury box, and the
right to be elected to office in the Northern
4. That he conspired as afbresaid to de
stroy the -Union of these States, by
laws excluding ten of the States from a par

The defendant was arrakmed before the
bar, and pleaded net guilty, and put himsell
upon the country. The jury was empan

The defendant appeared by counsel of hi-.
own kidney, who resorted to bribery, fraud,
and every devilish device to ;rain the verdict,
but after a fair trial and a full inve•digation,
the jury returned a verdict of guilty in man
ner and form as defendant stood indicted.
Whereupon the court adjuded, ordered
and decreed that Ben. Wade had forfeited

I was born in Nebraska. - The farmer to
whom I belonged paid a tax upon rue as a part
of his income during my vcalhood. He sold
me when I was three years old, and paid „an
income tax upon what I. brought. I was
nicely fatted until I weighed nearly a ton, by
a Democrat on Weeping Water, who paid
the Government eighteen cents for the pri
vilege of selling rue to a butcher, who pays .a
tax of ten dollars for the privilege of selling
meat to the public. The butcher sold my
tallow to a chandler; who made me, by pay
ing a lidense as manufacturer, into candles
for the poor people, who pay a five per cent.
tax on candles to read by. My • horns and
hoofs are made into combs and glued, and
pay another tax. My hide goes to the tan
ner, who pays a manufacturers license, and
is made into leather, upon which is an.
takron tax of five per cent. The tanner
will sell thd leather to a wholesale dealer,
who pays a mercantile license and an in
come tax, and he will sell it to the shoema
ker, and the shoemaker will get up . boots tnr
the laborer, tanner and mechanic, and charge
enough for them to cover all the taxes enu
merated, together with his own manufac
I was made out of the hide of the departed
ox whose taxed rife and death is published
above. At first my body was rough leather
only, and taxed five per cent. ,ut ca:oron, but
my toe and tongue were made of enameled
leather and were therefore obliged to pay an—
extra tax for increased valuation. My sole
and body were held together by little nails,
upon which there is a tax of five per cent.,
and then I paid a manufacturer's tax and a
three per cent., a'7 r.tloAni tax, and a part of
an income tax, together with a five per cent.
tax on thread and a tax of twenty cents
gallon on the oil that I was dressed with.
All of these taxes were converted into gold
and paid to my Lord and Lady Shoddy as
interest money upon their untaxed bonds! '
And I was bought and worn out by a one
armed soldier, who pays a license tax for
vending peanuts, apples and Yankee notions,
and ant now an old shoe ready to be picked
up by the city scavenger, who pays license
tax, and hauled into the country for manure
to raise corn that will make three gallons of
whiskey to the bushel and pay a tax of two
dollars on each gallon.
The I old shoes of Webster, Cass, Batton.
Clay, and Polk would make better laws and
'Mete out more equal taxation than do the
Chandlers, Sumner, SteYense.s and Colfaxes
of this day and generation. Old shoes in the
House of Representatives and old boots in
the Senate would make a better Cougrcss

who refused to commit perjury by finding
the President guilty in obedience to outside
clamor and dictation :
