that "certain defeat will follow tothe

a chance of defeating Greeley."
We shall, not be surprised if, when the
Greeley movement shall be more fully
developed by the action at Baltimore,
there should be a load call for Grant's
withdrawal from the Radical ranks. But
it will be too late. The mischUf has been

as if they were only anxious to know

"When the rebellious traitors are over

to judge the moral quality of the act com

When Christains grow cold and neg

declines, the critical temper increases.
All long the eaves of a cold church hang
the icicles of criticism and censoriousness.
Ihen everybody sutlers. 1 lie pastor

are the most censured. The officers of

who happeu to be unpopular are made
the luckless scapegoats on which to load
the failures of the church. Each blames
the others ; but no one goes down in the
dust of contrition aud blames himself.
