ons as a good citizen or member of society would condemn. In Kansas city, Judge Birch was unable to proceed with his canvass, his life being threatened by a mob. In Troy, Lincoln county, a McClellan meeting was fired into by some soldiers, no doubt set on by low demagogues more responsible than the soldiers; and among the peaceable, good citizens there assembled for a lawful purpose, and in the exercise of rights which no man should dispute, one individual was killed and two wounded. In Jefferson city, an attempt was made to break up a McClellan meeting by rowdies, who were incited by well-known demagogues, who plied their tools with whiskey. On that occasion, George Dingham, State Treasurer, and a most estimable man, was assailed, and by accident only escaped with his life. In Moniteau county, we are informed that two persons, who were prominent at a McClellan meeting, were murdered on their way home, after the meeting broke up. Probably these instances comprise but a portion of th

Grant telegraphs Stanton of the fact of his having fired a shotted salute in honor of the victory, and says: Turning what bid fair to be a disaster into a glorious victory, stamps Sheridan, what I have always thought him, one of the ablest of generals.

In truth, his devotion to liberty, and his intimate persuasion that it can only be enjoyed under the Republican scheme, constantly gained strength to the end of his truly glorious life; and his steady resolution to hold the balance even between contending extremes at home, as well as to repel any advance from abroad incompatible with perfect independence, was not more dictated by the natural justice of
