around a village in York State and keep
bad whiskey from spoiling, once made a
bet that he could eat anything. "Can
you eat crows?" asked the boys. "Yes,
I kin eat crow," paid the oM liucr.
A bet was made, and the Xioys cooked
the crow, seasoned with Scotch snuff,
instead of pepper. The old man ate a
bite or two, chawed, choked, swore,
strangled and got bluo in the face, but,
prit to the backbone, he Fpluttcred out

Consider well the situation, ye who cry
Several articles have lately appeared
in the Omaha Herald, finding fatrlt with
the Government surveys, that are beimr
mile, or have ben made under the
present Surveyor General. They insinu
ate, for one thing, that the present in
cumbent of that office is selling con
tracts, lie's the man that we have all
been hunting after. We want reform,
and we mean purity. It's our card for
the next four years.
If this Surveyor General has sold a
contract against the reeulations of his
department, or pocketed any money that
he ought not to, put your finger on the
place. Give us the name of the man
who bought the contract, and the
amount he paid for it. Name your man,
or hold your peace. No reform was
ever accomplished by namby pamby
charges of corruption, never intended to
be proven.
Is another insinuation. The Deputies,
who are the men making the. actual sur
veys are responsible men. and they must
give a bond for the faithful performance
of their work. If this letter writer
knows of an important fact, or careless
survey, let him inform the District at
torney and have the men prosecuted at
once. That's the way. If they are dis
honest, they on'y lauh nt your newspa

those notes, and his duty ends there. If
the deputies swear to a lie, it is their
look out, and they may be prosecute )
for perjury, as well as forfeiture of boad.
All that the Government requires of th"
Survej'or General is to approve of the
field notes, on those contracts. The
writer of these letters knows this.

Cunningham have endeavored to get the

Generals, to satisfy themselves, generally
have the work inspected ; but it is not

The career and history of nations

to the history of passing events, and let
us see from whence come all .these char
ges of corruption, and how much truth
there is likely to be therein.
The New Yoik Sun has been author
of three-fourths of all the charges
against Gen. Grant and his administra
tion. If not the inventor, it has been
the priueipal medium by which they
first kaw respectable daylight, and from
its columns all the lesser fry have re
hashed them over and over to the coun
try. AGAIN.
In another line, but none the less ea
ger and perMstent in defaming the Presi
dent, his acts, aud in short the whole
Republican party, comes Frank Leslie,
with his "arious illustrated papers.
These two papers, though not alone in
their opposition., have yet been so promi
nent and marked in their course that a
review of their aims and motives as well
as their ttanding in the newspaper world,
compared with the cl aracter of two ot
the most prominent newspapers defend
ing the President, will give U3 a very
good idea of the whole, business, and
enable us to judge which is, likely to be
right and which wrong.
From the columns of one or the other I
of these papers is where our good old
Republican has got the notion that
Grant never is at Washington, and likes
buil-dogs and. horses better than attend
ing to his duties at the scat of Govern
ment. From these sources has the hon
est Democrat received the information
which leads him to believe that all
Grant's relatives are in office, aud from
these stories do s the Liberal hope to
how that Grant and his friends ought
to go out, and let Horace and his frieuda I
It being a self-evident fact that very
few of the voters of the country ever
have a chance to verify these charges
for themselves, and by their own obser
vation, it follows that they get their in
formation second " hand. It behooves
both them and us to examine tho rtlia
'ility of the authors of the same, and
their probable motives in telling their
different ptories.
This rule applies as .well to all the
smaller editors iu the land, to the county
politicians, and to most of our neigh
bors, in fact, who are not in a position
to gain information direct, aud by the
evidence of their own senses.
We nearly all get our ideas of thee
things from tome newspaper, or from
some person who ewears by some par
ticular newspaper, and retails as truth
all it utters.
This being the fact, and it being
equally well known that while these
charges are mainly made by the above
mentioned papers, they are as stoutly
denied and refuted, charge by charge
and line by line, in the New York Time
and Harpers WteJdy ; let us examine
the standing of these publications, the
motives of each ; and thus determine
the probability of the truth or falsehood
of their statements.
A newspaper but lately established in
New York City ; a cheap daily paper,
intemtttd for the masses, starting in the
face of three old. long established, rich
and influential Journals, viz : The Her
ald, Tribune and Times. Now it must
do something to acquire notoriety and
pennies. It bethought itself that to
abuse Grant would be the best way.
Some malice and personal spite on the
part of the editor because tho Adminis
tration did not favor its views nor ap
point its editor Collector of the Port of
New York, added fuel to the fire of
hate and de?ire of success, perhaps ; but
tha simple fact that he must make his j
paper a crack paper of the sensational
s yle, ia order to have it lire, and that
tho sales might be enormously increased
in a great city like New York, would be
sufficient to throw a doubt over its ftate-
inents on suoh a subject, and to iovali-
date its evidence in a fair court of law or
Claims to be the first Illustrated news

went of the Alabama claims. Their for
eign exchange list islnrgely English, and
the tone of most of it j hostile to
this administration. It has always been
quasi Democratic, (the paper was at one
time owned or largely backed by the
Woods Fernando and Ben it was
said), was opposed to the war, made fun
of Lincoln, and has leaned to the south
ern side of the question ever since.
These reasons alone would show its ani
mus, but add to this the fact that Har
per Bro.'s have taken to Illustrated pa
pers, following Mr. Leslie up very closely
and bave rather excelled him in what he
claims to be his specialty in this country.
First with the "Weekly" and then with
a Fashion Journal, ' The Bazaar," as op
posed to "Leslie's Illustrated," and "La-
I die Magazine," Lave the Harper's di-
rectiy and successfully appeared in the
field of Illustrated papers, and both
publications being edited with vigor and
ability, tbey are to-day the standard pa
pers of the kind in America,
It is to be observed, that for some
years back, whichever side of the ques
tion Harpers advocated, Leslie's were
6ure to be found on the opposite. No
sooner did Curtis begin to uphold the
President and his acts, than Leslie's
took the other chute, and violently de
nounced both.
What weight can opinions, formed on
such a basis and for such objects, cany
as against principles and facts? None.
Listen to the record :
Is an old, long established, and always
reliable paper. Its proprietors are weal
thy, its circulation large it has no need
to resort to sensation to exist, nor to in
crease its readers: It has not been a
violent partisan paper, but on the con
trary has been considered the paper of j
moderate and conservative views. From
its commencement it occupied a place
between the. Tribune and Herald, and
its statement of facts were considered
the most reliable. Neither its editors
nor proprietors are aspirants for any of
fice, and its writers are on the ground,
and have the best chance to know and
to judge the truth of what they write.
Without glorifying the Republican party
en masse, it has from the first espoused
the Administration side in this issue, and
in a manly, straightforward way exposed
fraud and corruption whenever and
wherever needed, avoiding wholesale de
nunciation of men and parties, as bad
policy, tending to creete distrust""among
the people, and cripple the real power
and usefulness of the press. It has giv
en credit where credit was due, fastened
corruption on the parties to whom it be-
longed, and upheld the honest portion of
our party in its eiiorcs ior reiorm. ine
Hie statements of such a paper must
and do carry weight.
"HARPER S weekly."
Everyone knows it and almost every one
heads it. The firm of Harper Brothers
are the proprietors of the largest pub
lishing house in the land ; long estab
lished in busjnes, rich in means, credit
and influence. The old firm belonged
to the Methodist persuasion, were never
polit cians, and the whole outfit bears
the stamp of reliability, honesty and
truth. No better or fairer business men
can be found in America than the mem
bers of this firm. What temptation
then, could one imagine, that would lead
such men to lend their paper to a false
hood, or an untruth. Tfiey do not need
money, they do not need 'power. They
cannot want office, for their position al
ready gives them more weight and influ
ence than twenty Government offices
could procure for them.
The political editor of Harper's Weekly,
is a man of unblemished reputation, of I
mature years, capable of juJging, and
with all the facts and papers before
him, he has repeatedly and unhesita
tingly gone through every charge and
every accusation against Gen Grant, and
pronounced them false.
Readers, compare the men and the I
racers. On the one nand we have an
ambitious and unscrupulous journalist,
starting a new paper, as one may say,
anxious to push his fortunes and his pa
per to succesi. Finding the field closed,
in a manner, against hitn, and not hav
ing the key to open the gates at once, he
endeavors, by burglars means, to force
his way onward and upwards In short,
all to gain, and naught to lose, by advo
cating a change.
Again, an old establishment, true, but
cramped by prejudicie, biased by old as
sociations, maddened by a business ri
valry,.with all the irritation of a jealous
nature, they are driven forward into the
opposition, and blinded by these causes,
may think they aro justified ; but have
the people aught to do with this, and
should they jeopardize a commonwealth
in order to conquer a rival.

their course succeeds or fails, judge you

Please Mr. "Look before you leap,"
remember the following facts : It is not
only the sale of arms to the French that
makes most of the Germans oppose the
re-election of Grant, L.ut it is the general
corruption of tho Grant administration.
It is neither Carl Schurz, who, as you
state, boasts that he carries us in his
pocket, nor Charles Sumner, whom 3-ou
title haughty aristocrat, hating and des
pising the Germans and Irish, who wilj
turn our vote against Grant, but it is the
principle those two men fought for in the
last session of Congress; the principle of
personal right and liberty ; of integrity
and honesty, against corruption and tyr
It is the same principle for which Car
Schurz fought in the old country, and
wherefore he was banished and driven
from his native soil. It is the same prin
ciple which made Charles Sumner the
former pet lamb of the radical Republic
an party leave that party and join the
liberal side Not love of misrule and
desire for power, causes them to endeav
or to disrupt and thwart the plans of a
wise and good administration, as you cal
it; but it is their untarnished love for
richt and honesty, which causes them to
endeavor to break down the power of a
corrupt administration as we call it.
Please remember further.that the com
mittee on the sale of arms to the French
was composed, nearly to a man, of Mr,
Grant's subjects, and that neither Schurz
uor Sumner, vas allowed to occupy the
place of chairman of the committee
on investigation, which rightly belonged
to either one or the other, because they
could and would have exposed the whole
shameful swindle.
And please remember last, but not
least, that it is not two years yet, when
Carl Schurz visited his fatherland, or, as
you call it, Bismarck's country, and was
received with great enthusiasm by his
countrman, and that Bismarck did take
a great deal of stock in our great States
man. How much stock we all take in
him, will be explained to you, to your
chagrin, in the next November election

the author of that statement.
Charles Sumner we know from the
conversation of many persons, to be just
what he was described, a haughty aristo
crat, and a man who, while pure in one
sense, and takes no money bribes, is the
mr open to be fooled and cajoled
through his love of power and egotism,
of any man in the U. S. Senate, conse
quently not a safe man to tie to. In our
humble opinion, the principle they fought
for during the laat session, was bchurz
ana oumner.
The statement in regard to Schurz's
banishment, was also public Democratic
newspaper history, when they desired to
put Mr. Schurz out of the way.
It is no sinf no crime to be banished as
a rebel,- we rather glory m in that here,
but it a crime to become a political mal
content, restless and dissatisfied with any
and all governments that do not square
with one individual's opinions. Such
an one Mr. Schurz has been represented
to us by many Germans.
Charles Sumner has never left the Re
publican party in a formal manner, nev
er accepted the Cincinnati Convention,
and never announced himself as a Liber
al. So that clause needs no answer.
We propose to go through the charges
of corruption at an early day and bring
the proofs of honesty. Our mere state
ments on either side, that it is or ia not
corrupt proves nothing.

Nothing was proven. Charles Sumner,
docliucd an active part in the prosecurorr
because he did not wish to appear in tho
light of an American accusing his coun
try and his party of a crime which, if
proven, might involve rn in a war with
Europe. Ho knev? that Americans
would not thank him for the one, and
old Massachusetts would flout him on
the other position as she has.
As to how much stock Bismarck takes
in Schurz, does not affect hiscourso hercr

party of this country, which has been
most base, and vfe nbaM leave that fact

that we may never live to fco the day
that it is otherwise.
Do you all know what that means ? '
Democratic papers harp on it wonder
fully. It means in English putting his rcla"
tives in office.
Helping ones friends has been tho cus
tom in politics from time immemorial.
Democrats have invariably helped all
their brothers and cousins whenever and
wherever they could. This administra
tion has done loss of that business than -any
other on record. This is a fact and
we defy proof to the contrary. Name
for name and position for position,
Grant's administration can show a clearer
record than any Democratic administra
tion since the days of Jackson.
The New York Sun started this-
charge, and in an elaborate article gave
the names of 25 men which they eaid
were Grant's relatives appointed bj him.
TniRTEEN of these aro no relatives at
all, somo of them, Grant , or his family,
never heard of. Three were appointed
by Andy Johnso'n before Grant was even
thought of for President, one wss ap
pointed by the Secretary of the Treasury.
Grant never knew of his appointment. '
One was an army appointment not
from Grant and one other a war ap
Have been shown on a fair examination
to have been appointed by Grant him
self, during his four yeare, and every one
of these were appointed by strong recom

In answer'to the delegation from Texas,-
Sumner said, "I have a high opinion of
Greeley. I sympathise with the move
ment, but the time has not come for me
to "peak out. It may come. At prcs-
ent no one is autliorized to speak for me.''
Greeley Iteeord on the Ro Klnx
It is a common mistake that the Ku-
vlux law is repealed or has expired.
Neither is true. The law is still in forco
A single feature of it, that authorized
the suspension of the writ of Iiabeas cor
pus, expired by its own limitation with
the late session of Congress. But tho
Ku-Klux law remains a law. Mr. Gree
ley did a thousand times more than
Grant to havo that law passed. . It is
claimed by some democrats that Horace
is converted to their faith. Has he'
asked for the repeal of that statue Y Ia
he opposed to its continuance? On the
contrary, he occupies the same position
towards it that he did when he helped
to enact it. Missouri Democrat.

ner. It is a good point Julia Ward Howo
is said to have made on Senator Sumner.
She wrote asking his influence in favor
of some person having a private claim
before Congress. He replied that his
time was eo taSen up with general prin
ciples, and the welfare of the human
race at large, that he could not give at
tention to individuals. Her rcp'y is re
ported subHtantially thus :
. "Tho world will doubtless be g'ad to
hear from Hon. Charles Sumner own
lips, that he has advanced one digree
beyond Almighty God, when last heard
from ; " hecdeth even a Sparrow's

This note is said to have opened Mr.
Sumner's eyes, and he and his friends .
after considerable trouble succeeded in
suppressing the publication of tho cor
respondence, and baring it destroyed.

"What would have been throught of
the Union General that should have pro
posed an alliance of his division with the
rebel army to cruh Grant, as the best
mode of endiug the war? Yet, this is
Schurz's mode of burying the party
strife born in the war. He joins tho
Democrats to overwhelm the Republican
party. Let him explain this little mat
ter in his forthcoming speech to his con
stituents:" Mr. Schurz has learned something
from experience if we credit his late
confessions. One of these days be will
have learued something more. He will
have learned that in this country the' .
peoplo govern; that they govern
through- parties ; and that a ptrty does
not honor citizen with high position
that he rafy use it ia an effort to destroy
the perty which has elevated him.
