ington,. " thereby enbaucingthe value of

of a very -siMple° transaction." Shortly
after - the - .organization' of the Seneca-
Stoneforupany in 1807, nearly a year
before Gen; Grant. seas nominated Presi
dent, he eras invited by Mr. 11. D. Cooke
and take'tweuty thousand dol
lars' worth of stock as an' divestment.
. -
He thought well of it, and surely no one
will deny thi4 he was tree to invest his;

February—stock bought in 18G7; Cooke
appointed 1871—and that appointment
had about, as ' much to do with Seneca

Post4erliary period. A
The charge that President Grant quar
rels with Sumner and is friendly V. ith
Nye, &c., and • that he absents himself
from 'Washington during Summer, we
leaye people to form their own opinion
about. The accusation that Somebody
very near to • the Presidential .. person
waS engaged in the "gold gambling"
affair of Fisk and Gould, is utterly re
futed by Jay Gould's own evidence, as
published in the ofiieial report of the in
vestigation, by the Forty-first Congress.
The President himself gave the order to
sell gifid on the infamous -"l3liclr. Fri
day"—that order which
.Ifiought the
conspiracy to ant end. The only man
who everattempt&l to drag-Gen. Grant's
name into' the tmneactiou •vras Jarnes
Fisk, jr.,—a notorious thief-and swind
ler; Is there any respectable 'man or..
woman in this country who would suffer
his or her estimation Of a friend's char
acter to be lowered by anything James
Fisk, jr., might say? And yet the Presi
dent of the United States • is to *con
domed by party papers, on the evideude
of a man Who has committed the worst
hind of. offenses against the law, and
who, to the eternal 'disgrace of the
'judges - tle• administer that law, is - still
revelling in bis stolen nealth, insteadof
breaking stone in' Sing Sing. • .
As to the - objections to Gini.
course on public affairs, we do not pro
fes's to answer them now ; we merely
repeat our 0,15 , 11 4pinioll,,that iii the main
his policy is a sound, wine, and benefi
cial ono. A,,mlin of purer private life
th'an Gen. Grant never' ofeupied the
Presidential 'chair. Is it justis it
worthy'of,the President's position, or of
this great nation—that ho should bo
called to .account at any eminent; by
every disappointed office-seeker who
chooses to invent a now slander against
him? We have replied to theseclarges
because by conktnnt 'repetition, they'
might have imposed upon credulous
minds. The more thoroughly they are
sifted, the-inure shamefully falser and
malicious they Will appear. We believe ;
that the Majority of the people
upon these ealumnies with indigna:'
tion. They have mado thousands'
of friends 'for the President, among
,that quiet and thoughtful Class
;of the community , which rarely basics
itself actively in politics,'but. which ' ad_

of the courts. What I Mean to Alisort in

that the' Icing could do no wrong ; and

and the consequence of it is (which ; I_
might enlarge upon in approaching the

myself to the courts. • . I served-once as

perhaps, because they had no band.
But they were generally held in high
repute, and Bill Morrisoq their drum

Then there were the Ilussars, whose
chief attraction was the red-coated bu

capacity, - 11.4gh 0 the place was some
