The President and the Politi
cians. ITho sagacity and patriotism of the
President have never received a more
decided exemplification than was
evinced ly his reply on Thursday to a
delegation of Republicans from Arkan
sas, who had called to see him in rela
tion, among other things, to certain
Federal appointments in that State.
The allegation was made by the visit
ors that the Executive had been de
ceived in regard to those appointments,
and the remark made by the President
in that connection was at once terse
and admirable; it was that he had
made the appointments because of rep
resentations on file; that he had no
personal feeling in the matter, and
that the question was before the Con
gressional committee, where he hoped
and believed the subject would be most
j It has been alleged by the Democratic
press and by certain Republican papers
that since his inauguration the Presi
dent has sought to impose upon the
i i r - - -
Ieopieomciais wno naa oeen appointed
because of their attachment to him
rather than from any fitness thev ixw-
sssed, and that in many instances it
has been his object to give places to
nien in utter disregard of the popular
fooling in the localities where they were
io oiiKuaie. we nave always main
tained the falsity of these charges, and
Ihrre can be no more certain refuta
tion of their truth, no more palpable
evidence of the President's feelinirs in
the premises, than is contained in the
re-piy io uie Arkansas delegation which
ve have quoted.
jThe multifarious duties of the Presi
dential position necessarily preclude
the possibility of a personal investiga
tion by its occupant of the qualifica
tions of those whom he is asked to ap
point. ; Equally impracticable is it for
the i'resiaent to ascertain to his person
al satisfaction the feelings of communi
ties or States on those aspirants for
place in their midst. These are topics
that must of necessity be investigated
by the committees to which are refer
red ihese nominations. Upon the Ex
ecutive devolves the duty of naming
those to fill 'positions, and he is induc
ed to such action byTeason of represen
tations made to him.
;if, as often happens, an opposition is
made to these selections, it is in the
nature of things futile to expect that
the Chief Magistrate should thorough
ly examine both sides of the question.
The very reference of these nomina
tions to the appropriate committees as
sumes the most elaborate examination
iij those bodies of the arguments that
have been employed respectively to
show the fitness or the impropriety of
their confirmation. The President is
u$ any time liable to be deceived by
politicians eager for personal power,
and the history of American jolitics
proves very conclusively that it some
times hapjens these politicians have
the honorable positionsof Senators of
ISenators and gentlemen aro always
supposed to speak the truth, but in
these days the former position is occa
sionally acquired by practices that not
uhfrequently cause the attributes of the
latter to be disregarded. When, there
fore, the Executive is imposed upon,
the truth or falsity of all statements
made to control his action can best be
decided by the Senatorial committees
to which is delegated the power and
the duty thoroughly, impartially and
fairly to scrutinize the same.
i The noble disclaimer made by the
President that he has 44 any personal
feeling" in the confirmation of appoint
ments whose propriety or popularity is
contested is indubitable evidence of
his thorough appreciation of republican
institutions ond his hearty desire to
fulfill the delicate and responsible du
ties of his exalted position. Washing

i$fied of certain facts important to be
understood and stated, instead of con
tributing to a choan delusion which
dees the grossest injustice to scores of
thousands or as earnest itenuoncans as
om.in tho pnnntrv. The fact that
i wo years ago the Republicans of this
State were in two iacuons, one miu u
as 44 Liberal Republican," gives no war
rant for the assumption now exists.
That division was exclusively a local
and temporary affair, and has been re
peatedlv and emphatically recognized
as suctibv the Republican masses.
The lines have been everywhere wiped
oiit, most conspicuously in St. Louis
county, where the 44 liberal " wing was
by far stronger than in any other coun
ty in the State. This was here done by
the Republican masses themselves, de
spite a selfish effort of a few forlorn
would-be leaders to prevent it, and so
effectively done that these i leaders
themselves openly abandoned their fu
tile etrort and came into the common
inn.iKiiran wmn. Of course thev came
with a mental reservation, ready for
anv future service ior-iue in.-motnicj.
The hope of parading the Missouri Re
publican schism in national politics,
and thus extending it or creating one
in other States, was too brilliant to be
readily abandoned. Yet nothing in
this State is more notorious than that
the lxIt of '70 would have ignomini
ously failed had it not explicitly repu
diated a national character. The charge
that liberals most earnestly resented
was that they meant hostility to their
party in the national campaign;

A Blast from Jnbal.
For an arrant, blatant, traitorous
demagogue, commend us to Jubal Ear
ly. This man was, indeed, a soldieron
the Confederate side during the rebel
lion, but his greatest renown was
achieved by the efforts he made to keep
out of the way of Sheridan. Like most
of the Confederate solders who managed
to escape the heavy work of tho war,
and unlike nearly all those who were
compelled to bear its brunt, Jubal Ear
ly, ever since tho close of the struggle,
has been afflicted with a flow of words
which would now be taken for down
right treason were it not for the fact
that our notions of treason have been
slightly obscured by undue familiarity
with it in its most flagrant forms. A
days ago, on the occasion of the anni
versary of Robert B. Lee's birth, the
chivalric Early made a speech to the
students of the Washington and Lee (I)
University, at Lexington, Virginia,
over which the Rebel chieftain presided
at the time of his death. This speech
was . just such a harangue as might
have been expected from Jubal Ear
ly. 44 Can true issues ever be dead?"
cries Jubal, and then launches forth
upon a foamy, frothy sea of Rebel plati
tudes, saying, among other things less
dangerous Ladies, I have faith in
you to instil into the rising generation
the memoriesof the past ;" and it is to
be fearea that Jubal had among his
auditors some shallow-beaded women
who will follow his advice, and teach
their children to look upon the lost
cause as one not altogether lost beyond
redemption, to regard the dead issue of
the civil war. as one which has been
closed only for the passing moment.
Jubal talks about branding with the
brand of infamy the branded renegades
who see fit to accept the situation which
his feeble intellect cannot even compre
hend, and refers naively to the 44 Con
federate capital," as though Jeff. Davis
were still installed in Richmond, and
McCIellan still floundering in the
swamps of the Chickahominy. This
man Early is a Bourbon of the most
lamentable type. He not only learns
nothing and forgets nothing, but he
knows nothing to forget, and there is
nothing for him to learn which falls to
the pitiful level of his capacity. Doubt
less he wants to serve his fellow-citizens
of the late Confederacy, and fails be
cause he don't know how. It would be
interesting to learn his views on the
44 passive policy" in the approaching
Presidential campaign. 27it7rttfe(pAia
The Anti-Grant Republican Con
Tention and Other Presiden
The Missouri .anti-Grant Republicans,
who hold the balance of power in that State,
have called a national anti-Grantor "lib
eral Republican" Convention, to meet in
Cincinnatti on the Cth of May, to take such
action in reference to the approaching Pres
idential contest "as may be deemed expe
dient." The real objects of this movement,
however, arc: First, to ascertain the strength
of the anti-Grant Republicans outside ol
Missouri ; and, secondly, if disclosed to be
sufficient to justify the nomination of a tick
et which will secure the support of the
Democratic party, the object is to nominate
such ticket, on a sort of free trade, general
amnesty and flexible States rights platform.
Tho subsoil philosopher- of Chappaqua
thinks, too, that this Convention 44 may
prove a fiasco," or that 44 it may name the
next President; and that it will name the
successful man unless General Grant shall
turn meantime the cold shoulder upon Sen
ator Conkling and freely admit Mr. Fentan,
Mr. Greeley and their outside friends to the
flesh pots and marrow bones of the Custom
But this view of tho question is the con
tracted view of the mere spoilsman, and
docs not cover the ground ; and yet outside
of Missouri, we suspect, there are very few
anti-Grant Republicans who are not disap
pointed office-seekers. Nor have we had
so lar. anv movements in behalf of this Cin
cinnati Convention outside of Missouri.
There is, io be sure, time enough in the in
terval to May to get up delegations to Chi
cinnati from every State ; but as outside of
Missouri thrse anti-Grant Republicans de
sire first to see the upshot of the regular
party Convention at Philadelphia, we fear
that the Cincinnati concern will not be illu
minated to any great extent by the light ol
their countenances. So wc judge from all
the lights before us ; but if in the interval
to May we fin General Coxe for Ohio, and
Colonel McClure for Pennsylvania, and Mr.
Scovel for New Jersey, and Messrs. Fenton
and Greeley for New York, and Mr. Bowles
for Connecticut, and Mr. Sumner for Mas
sachusetts, and so on, each heading a con
siderable delegation of anti-Grant Repub
licans, bound for Cincinnati, then we shall
know that there is something in the wind.
From present appearances, however, the
Cincinnati Convention will be a lizzie, luce
the Independent Conservative Tyler Balti
more Convention of 1844, and the Cleve
land Anti-Lincoln Republican Convention
of 1SG4, and tho Andy Johnson Philadelphia
New Party Convention of 1866,md, without
doing much, it will, probably, adjourn to
meet again at the same time and place with
the regular Democratic Convention. And.
as every man who goes to this Cincinnati
council of Republican soreheads will be
taking a new departure, it is probable that,
except the Missouri out-and-outers, most
of them will stay at home until they can
make a pretty clear calculation as to which
will be the Rafo side, on the principle that
While the lamp holds out to burn
Tho vilest sinner may return.
But in advance of this Cincinnati New
Tarty Convention there will be two others,
and they are to come ofT. at Columbus,
Ohio, next month. Wo allude to the Na
tional Convention of the Labor Reformers
and that of the Temperance Reformers.
Each of these parties may nominate a Pres
idential ticket, or they may combine upon
a joint stock labor and temperance reform
ticket. The probabilities, however, are in
favor of a ticket from each of these new
parties, because, as we have seen in New
Hampshire and Massachusetts, your labor
reformer, as Uie rule, looks upon your cold
water doctors with much of the contempt
of an old line Democrat. In any event these
Columbus reform Conventions of February
may somewhat disturb the calculations oi
the'politiclans on all sides, and with these
and two or three other Presidential parties
r.oneral Grant will have a fight
as interesting as that of General Jackson, of
1S02, against National KepuDiicans uu
and Southern Nulliflers and
most likely with the same general results.

Circuit Court at Columbia must admit that
Justice has been largely tempered with
mercy, as administered by him. This has
been especially Noticeable in the sentences
pronounced upon those from our -county
who contessed themselves guilty of the
charges against them. His patience in lis
tening for days, weeks perhaps, to the ar
guments of "The eminent Counsel from

longs to family long distinguished for
learning, piety and every good work. He
is the son of the late Rey . Thomas E. Bond,

Saw Him. The Local of The Wilmington j
Journal says: "We had the distinguished
honor of seeing, on Tuesday last, Maj. Gen.
nenry Berry Lowery, Commander-in-Chief
of the Army of Scuffletown Outlaws,
who was at Moss Neck, on Tuesday, as tho
train passed there going up. We wero oh
the train, and hearing that the outlaw was
at the depot, we got a view of him just as
the train was moving off. He was standing
in the door of a negro hovel at the depot,
apparently unarmed, and waiting for some
body to come along and make that $10,000
offered for his head. He appeared, in the
hasty glance we had of him, to be about 5
feet 8 or 9 inches high, rather stout, a light
mulatto complexion, and leng hair. We
didn't interview him."
$30,000 Reward for Lowbry and his
Gang. A bill passed both, Houses of the

and $5,000 for each of his accomplices. The
gang now consists of Henry Berry Lowrey,
Stephen Lowrey, Boss Strong, Andrew
Strong and George Applewhite, which will
make the sum total to be paid to the capture
of tho whole force, $50,000.
Here Is an opportunity for some enter

be materially consulted by the formation
of another district. There are other reasons
which make it the imperative duty of the

prosperity was great. Wc mrct now under

saw some four or five hundred students.
Were we there now, peihaps we would not

provoked this disastrous result. It is the
wish of every one of you to build up the
fortunes of the Unircrgiry. The Alatnni
are called at the present lime to respond
to a resolution offered by the Trustees of
the University of North Carolina, who are
clfsirous of having our aid and assistance
in rejuvenating the Institution. When I
first went in 1820 to that revered Mother,
there were only between eighty and oiip.
hundred students. Thv increase was
gradual up to 1S63 and. '64, and as I c
foro remarked, at one time the number f
students was fire hundred. Since the war
this Institution has been going down till

THE AMERICAN WASHER1

The Fatigue of Washing Day no Longer
Dreaded, but Economy, Efficiency, and
Clean Clothing. Sure. ' t
In calling public attention to this littio
machine, a few of the invaluable qualities,
(not possessed ' by any other washing ma
chine yet Invented,) are here enumerated.
It i the smallest, most compact, most
portable, most simple in construction, mont,
easily operated.1 A child ten years old, with
a few hours practice, caii thoroughly com
prehend and effectually use It. Tnero is no

adapting! It is always ready for use f It
giant, doing more work and of a better
Suality, than the mKt elaborate and costly.'
no half of the la!or is fully mwed by its .
use, and the clothes will last one-half longer
than by the old plan of the rub board. It
will wash the largest blanket. Threefchlrts
at a time, washing thoroughly I In a word,
the ablution of any fabric, from a Quilt to
Lace Curtain or Cambric Handkerchief, aro
equally within tho capacity of this LITTLH
GEMf It can be fastened to any tub and

- No matter how deep rooted a prejudice
may exist against Washing Machines, the
moment this little machine is seen to per
form its wonders, all doubts of its cleansing
efficacy and utility are banished, and tho
doubter and detractor at onco become the
fast friends of the machine. ,
We have testimonials without end, setting ,
forth its numerous advantages over all oth
ers, and from hundreds who haVe thrown '
aside the unwieldy, useless machines, which
hav e signally failed to accomplish thool
iectpromisea in prominent and loud sound
