. Unable to move without Pinch, as Pinch was unable to move without Packard, Kellogg threw himself on his patron, President Grant, and wired this message to Attorney General Williams:-- New Orleans: Dec. 11, 1872. If President in some wayLike Pinch, he had a Federal army at his back. Through all these usurpations General Emory stood by the nominees of President Grant. For four or five weeks Pinch ruled the State, as Jacques rules his duchy in the Honeymoon. Jesters squibbed himmight be put down in true republican fashion, by a public vote. When pressed by the Senate to explain his action, President Grant admitted that the late election in Louisiana was a gigantic fraud. He yielded to the Senate, that a new election ouonement of these lands and mules, and it was dangerous to tempt them in their angry mood. So Kellogg was allowed by President Grant to put off the new elections to a safer time. Two Senates and three Governors contended with each other for the m

In a question of disputes complete. But such a change in New Orleans was fatal to the policy of President Grant. Election-day was nigh; and if Governor McEnery sat in the State House oft that, with prompt support, the vote might yet be saved to the Republicans. Grant ordered Emory to crush the victorious citizens and restore the beaten scalawagsctory. The one thing certain. was, that Kellogg had not carried the State for Grant. Kellogg had promised his patron five votes out of the six possessed by Louisiana. Of the six votes only two were won for Grant. In the State Legislature, the elections for which were held at the same time as the elections for Congress, th

s fought his way to one of the highest seats within a soldier's reach. Five names emerge from the confusion of the war, and that of Sheridan is one of these five. If Lee and Jackson leave a brighter record, who among the Northern men, excepting Grant and Sherman, have a greater name than Sheridan? These captains are immortals, and Sheridan is youngest of the five. Alert as Mosby, he is hot as Hood and cool as Bragg. Think of poor Early in his grasp! Few strokes of war excel the charge bydialects and mixing in their feuds. It is a saying in the camp that Little Phil is one-half Irish savage, the other half Indian savage. If a merciless deed has to be done, everyone expects Sheridan to do it. When a cruel need of war induced General Grant to order the Shenandoah Valley to be burnt, the torch was placed in Sheridan's hands. The whole country, from the Blue Ridge to the North Mountain, has been made untenable! was his brief report; and never since the French generals, under ad

they will not be easily beaten from the ground they once take up. General McEnery is a small man, something like President Grant in face, with meditative eyes, and dreamy features, half-concealed by thick whiskers and heavy moustache. General Perman has sent these warnings on to Washington, marked by him with the significant words- for the personal perusal of General Grant. What say the Sub-Committee? Foster of Ohio, and Phelps of New Jersey, agree with Potter of New York, in a Reportth, has so much passion found a vent in speech. Statesmen who weigh their words are coming to the front, arraigning President Grant of something like high treason to the commonwealth. Adams in Boston, Bryant in New York, are giving the highest intest tools of a despotic power. The curses showered on Kellogg have a bitterness unequalled since the war.

Jewell is manager of a paper called The commercial Bulletin; a lively sheet, in which he carries on a war of insult and reproach against his former chief; not on the ground of high principle, but on a minor question springing out of the great conflict of race. Shall Negroes be allowed to ride in street cars? Ladies answer, No. Car owners, unable to offend their customers, answer, No. It is a bitter feud, dividing families, like the acts of Kellogg and the messages of Grant. A group of other questions stand, as one may say, around that of the street cars. Shall Negroes be allowed to lodge in good hotels? Shall Negroes be allowed to dine at common tables? Shall Negroes be allowed to sit in any part of church? The carpet-baggers, who depend on Negro suffrages, assert that all these privileges spring from the admitted theory of equal rights. If White and Black are equal before a judge, they are equal before a car-conductor and a tavern clerk. So say the

All ears are strained towards the telegrapning voices with Democrats in denouncing the policy of President Grant. The venerable Bryant leads the way in New York; the politics, leave their books and join these enemies of President Grant. Here is an act done in a time of peace, says Curtis, ay for their political friends, the cause is lost; yet President Grant was minded to go on, assume the burthen of events, andperior, and some of the leading journals are demanding that Grant shall retire from the White House, leaving his powers in Wite.
