Grant as a Usurper.
, We are told that Grant is a military
usurper. Here is wh&t The NewYork
Tribune said January 17i 18C8 : 1
General Grant's surrender of the office of
Secretary of war ad interim, in obedience
to the Senate of the United Statesj and the
laws of Congress, and in defiance of the
known, desire of his commander-in-chief,
that he should hold it by military( force in
defiance of the civil power, is one of the
.most admirable examples of the subordina
tion of the military to the civil power which

The Magnanimity of Grant.
The Confederate soldiers who were
at Appomattox have not forgotten the
magnanimity of General Grant on that
occasion. Only to the Greeley sort,
who were not there, is it necessary to
commend the following: - J
The terms accorded by General Grant were
generous and noble. Whatever cause hemay
have given to the Southern people at any
former period to think harshly of him, he
more than atoned for it in this act, and hcy
should never forget or cease to appreciate
the manly spirit tcith which he refused to
take advantage of their distresses and help
lessness as so many of his countrymen de
manded. General Grant may well be proud
of it, for it was the noblest act of his life. ' '
The victors were considerate and generous
in all things. They issued food liberally to
Vie starving troops of the vanquished army.

might seem to insult the fallen greatness
which they could but admire. Life and

It is an established fact that Mri

cinnati and also at Baltimore to the'
thieving Tammany Ring of New York
city. , These thieves ruled their citjr

posed to elect Mr. Greeley and transfer
Tweed, Sweeney, Hall, Hoffman, Cochi
rane, and other rogues of notoriety, tp
and discretion in this affair) but we
charge the death of Wilson upon Sher
iff Hellen and his friends, and we
charge that it was the result of their
political malice and partisan madness-;
it came of their determination, and the
determination of the whole " Demo-
cratic'.' party of the State, to rule or
ruin: nor1, is it the last murder to be
recorded at their hands, if the present
leaders continue to encourage and fos
ter their hellish spirit of madness, strife
arid murder, as they have done. r, , ,
;Bift the contested election in .Fitt.is
ever, and here is the result as given by
one of Hellen's friends in Pitt, to The
Qoldsboro Messenger : ' :
" He Sheriff Hellen vas simply
"forced to abandon his contest by the
" development of the fact that in one
" of the lower townships, where the
" Conservative ; majority was fifty or
" more," the poll holders were not qual
ified according to law." ;;"
, : If this is not a pretext for backing
out of an ugly scrape, it leaves the
" Conservative-democracy "; of Pitt in
a very ungainly plight. That party
had the fixing up of the whole election
law, and the putting in operation of the
township machinery for voting, from
Currituck to Cherokeeandif they fail
ed to " qualify " their henchmen " ac
cording to law " it was their'own fault ;
and we suspect it was so, in many in
stances, from the cool design to defraud
Republicans of their votes.
