The hxjakir | ! began with a brief sketch of the
life of ( Irani , alluding to his lack of success
In early business pursuit * , and his connection
> vllh the war of Mexico. He referred to the
need of thu north nt the opening of the war
of the rebellion for a man "of Iron-mold ,
Who had but two \vovds In his vocabulary-
Victory or Annihilation , " and added :
"Three great names wen ; rising to sight
Sherman. Thomas , Sheridan-nnd larger

fiom Ibi ! nrmlcs with some icpulscn ,
lie went stcadllv fotward from conquering
to conquer. Aside Irom all military qualities
he had one absorbing spirit the union must
be saved , the ichelllon must be beaten , the
confederate armies must be thrashed to elialT
ns on a summer's threshing Hour. He had
no political ambition , no Imaginary reputa
tion lo 1'ic.servo ordain. A great genius for
grand strategy , n comprehension of complex

really bom. lie had lain in the nest for a
long time as the Infertile egg. The brooding
of war hatched the egg , and an tsmlo came. "
Ibe sH'tiher then icl'cmd in detail to the
condition of tint armies , the motives ruling
theemimaiMlcrsand soldieis of both sides ,
tlio inanv liorcc battles in wlilch thousands
wen ; killed ami many moic thousands
wounded , and added : Into this sulphurous
storm of warir.int entered almost unknown.
It was willidilllcnlty he could obtain a com-
niand. Once set forward , Douelwiii , Shlloh ,

Spotsyivaiilo , Petersburg , Ajipomatlox these
weio Ids footsteps. In four years bo had
risen without political favor from the bottom
totheverj high st command , not second to
any living commander In the world. "
Itevicwing his miliuuj career ns n whole ,
Mr. Hctehi'isidilHe : never lost courage or
equanimity. With a million mcnforwho.se
movements be was responsible , ho yet car
ried a tranquil mind , neither depressed by
disaster nor elated hy success. Uontlo of

wnys mudcst. Win n his work was done and
Iho detent of the cnntcder.itcarmles was Until

Tlie Pj-caker dvM'lt tosome fiirlhcr length
upon ( irant's mllitarvaieor < , refilling iu
1 asf.ing the charge's which attributed his suc-
ce.sstn tui-k.nnd thcciri-umstauccn upon what
.some called vvaste of lite of his own soldiers
nnd the butcher ) of his enemies , nud iu his
concluding icmniks upon bis military life ,
mid : "A lithe summer , all the autumn , all
the winter , till the spill ! ? ? nnd early summer
again , lie Immmeied Lee with blow on blow ,
until nt Appomattnx the guut but not the

permitted , lie was called to the presidency
by universal acclaim , nud it foil upon him to
conduct the campaign of it-construction , oven
iiiorohiudciisomcth'in ' war. "
After dwelling upon the various nets of
Grant's national administration and his re
construction policy , he summed up his ad
ministrative career ns follows : "On the
\vhole , If one considers tlio intrinsic * difficulty
of the questions belonging to Ids administra
tion , the stormy days of politics and parlies
'
tluring his eliihl years , H must be'admitted
(1 ( nt the couutrv owes to his unsellish dispo
sition , to his gcnernl wisdom , to Ids unsullied
' Integrity , If not the mend of the wisest , yet
-V the reputation of one who. pro-eminent in
war , wns eminent In administration , more
perhaps by the w isdoni of n nob'o nature than
by that Intelligence which Is bred only bj
nxperitmce. Imperious counsellors and cor
rupt parasites dimmed the light of his polit
ical administration. "
. Mr. needier then dwell upon the retired
life of ( Ji'ii. Crnnt , referring to his business
reverses nnd tlie equanimity which char-
actcii/.cd him suh-cqiiontlv , and after speak
ing brlelly of his fatal Illness , concluded as
follows : "A man he was without vices , wttli
absolute haticd of lies and Ineradicable love
of truth , of perfect loyalty to friendship ,
neither envious ot'others nor selfish for him
self. Willr/cnl for the public good unfeigned ,
ho has Iclt to memory only such weaknesses
as connect him to humanity lyid such vir
tues ns will rank him among heroes. The
tidings of his death , long expected , gnvo a
Bhoek to the whole world. Covcinments ,
rulers , eminent stnlesmt'ti and scholars
from nil elvlll/.ed nations gnvo
sincere tokens of sympathy.
Killed as a wave over nil our land. It closed
Hie last furrow of the war ; II extinguished
the last prejudice ; It effaced the last vertigo
of hatred : nnd curved be the hand that brings
them back. Johnston nnd Huckner on one
side , Sherman nnd Sheridan on the other
bide of his bier , ho has come to his tomb a
frllent symbol that liberty hud conquered
ulnvcry , patriotism ichf.-lllun , nud pence war.
He rests In peace. No drum or cannon shall
disturb his tost. Sleep , hero , until another
trumpet shall shake the heavens and the
earth. Then come lorth to glory In Immor
tality. "

iilfeiiFo as that charged In the Urst count , lar
ceny nud obtaining goods under false pre
tenses. Them weio therefore two distinct
crimes charged In the dllferent counts In the
Knmo Indlctmenr. Judge Harrlo replied that
If the two crimes weio it-ally but dlifeient as-
. peels ot the same facts they could properly be
emlunccd under the name Indictment. As

completed. The demoenttle county oflle.ors
nre elreted except Kulil for I'omnii.ssloiicr.
ItCpuhlfcan attornovs this morning filed a
petition in the em-nit court asking for n
mandamus , directing 11s officer , tlm clcik ,
how to proceed witli tiie count by Instructing
him what are and what nn1 not legal returns.
Tlio hearing of tlie petition Is ii.xed lor'J
o clock tills morning.
In the meantime If the restraining order
Issued last night should lie dissolved.the clerk
might complete his work before - o'clock unit
the jurisdiction of tliecotut would IKV gone1.
After considerable tall ; , tlio argument before
Judge Ituttorvvorlli on the motion to dissolve
tin1 restiialug order and also the domnirer
to the pctilion , proceeded. It is exitcctcd tlio
argument will occupy the time until 'J o'clock ,
when mandamus proceedings will operate to
heM the clerk until It. can be determined.
The olllcial count of this county , as it will
Mnnd unless changed hy action ot' the courts ,
wits mushed this afternoon by ivcordlng the
vote of precinct K. . of the eighteenth ward.
Judge ISuchvvalter , in deciding tlm manda
mus case for that precinct , said that as
ThompMin. republican iiiilge , did not witness
the count the court could not compel him to
cert 11.v to its aceur.icy. 'J'lie other judges had
made the count and had delivered their re
turn In an Improper form. He would re
quire them to pie.seut their return in the
usual and proper form , taking cure to show
the date on which it is made. As to tlio proof
of fraud , tlm cour.1 said the fact that sixty-
nine mure voles were east than'there were
votes registered was conclusive that there
was Illegal voting. Hut it was not clear that
the e illegal votes could bo detected by aeon-
test. The court's order lo the judges 'did not
indicate what should be done with the return ,
us that quc tlun was not presented by the
proceeding ? .
When tie ! Judges presented their amended
return thi.s altcnioon Justice Sanderson ,
member of the canvassing board , emild not
IM found. Another justice 'f the pence wns
called to act in his place. Umillicial footings

ardson the highest on the republican ticket ,
! H,401. Hardacre is the lowest on the republi
can HcJcet , having : i4.HS and Urashears , on
the democratic ticket , : Hr > S4. For reprosenta-
lives the variances are not so great , but the
democratic figures are all higher than the
highest republican vote. The clerk will
probably issue certificates to all except ( sena
tors as boon as the footings are made.
The injunction as to wmators Mill holds.
It was argued nil d.i ) on the demurrer and a
motion to dissolve , and was not supported by
any other proceeding , the mandamus before
the circuit court , for the reason that but live
of the judges are here. They called the case ,
and set Its hearing for Monday at 10 a. in.
The committee of one hundred , recently
organized to detect and punish violators of
the registry and election lawn , held a public
meet inn this afternoon at the chamlur of
commerce , which had a full attendance. A per
manent organization was effected , providing
fora large membership , with an initiation
fee of & "i and the same for annual dues. The
ofUcers and enough other members of the
association to bring the number up to one
hundred to constitute an executive commit
tee. It was agreed that no partisan test for
membership should be applied , and that no
olUceholder should serve on the executive
committee. The object of the association Is to
protect the purity of the ballot.
AMONG THK ICAliatOADS.
Possibility of a Serious Hntc Cutting
iu tin ; Olito River Tool.
CiWAno , Oct. 2i The rate committee of
the Ohio river pool was In consultation with
Commissioner Midgcly to-day In relation to
the condition oi tilings , which . - ccias not un
likely to develop into a serious ami wide
spread ease of rate cutting. It has been
charged for some time past that the lines In
cluded in the Ohio river pool have been mak
ing a rebate of nine cents per hundred
pounds on all meats and packing house pro
ducts destined to territory south of the Ohio
and west ol the Mississippi river to what is
known as tlio ' 'Green Line'1 points. Thissce-
lion Is covered by tlm I.oulsvilie
& ; Nashville road , which virtually
dictates ail tai ill's In common with the .South
ern Hallway and Steamship association pool ,
which al > o exercises aulhoilty over that portion
tion of territory. Since the completion of
the Fort Scott , t .Sjuingileld railroad.it has
divided" the trade with the Chicago A St.
Louis road , taking packing house products
from Kansas City Into " ( Jrcen l.lne" tciri-
lory , and cutting Into .Chicago and St. Louis
tralllc materially.
Tariffs in all directions have been very
shaky for several months na > t , which tends
to iigginvnte the unpleasantness of the situa
tion. It Is stated that so entirely bus tlio re
bate system of the Ohio river pool lines cut
off I ho Tort Scott road that nut a car load of
packing house products has been shipped
smith o\er that line for more than a
month. .Mr. Sargent , general tralllc. man
ager ot the Memphis r.illumd , has been loud
In his complaints on tills account. He has
appealed to Commissioner Mldgley to bo
alUmcd to meet the ichate , but that privilege
has not been conceded. Attempts to get to
gether the managers of a I the roads interest
ed in the tr.illlu of lids tenltoty , so as to get
at the bottom of the dltliculty and remove
It to the satisfaction of all have so
far proved fruitless. At the iiicctim ; to-day
It Wits derided to make an ctfort to Induce the
Chicago lines to do avtay with the ichatci
system. In ea 4j this cannot be accomplished
the I'oit Scott road will probably ho allowed
to meet the rebate for llio pre-eiit. As the
uucstlon is. of no small Intere.-t to other points
than those mentioned , not to allow the Cin
cinnati it SI. Louis to allow the Fort Scott
road to meet the a-lnto nuulobylts competi
tors , it will be to abildgc over tcmponrilv
only llio pan In the trall ! agreement that will
eventually have to be Jin | | | up.

Niw : YOIIK , Oct. Si [ Special to Iho Htn. : ]
The Herald's Washington special says :
Chauucey M. Dopew's letter to Col. Fred
Grant narrating the conversation with ( ! en.
Grant about President Johnson's icvolutlon-
ary project. Is ? o nt variance with document
ary evidence , btalo papers , correspondence
and other cotroborntlve testimony , that the
olliulals of the slate nnd war departments
are surprised nt Its nllegntions. Notwith
standing Col. Fied ( irnnt says Dcpcvv's letter
is substnntially conect , and that he has been
able to verify the facts from documents , let
ters nml personal recollections ! , Depew's
statement is an ntlcr-dlnner recollection ;
but had ho read the speeches of Pies-
blent Johnson in 1MKI , beginning
with the address to tlie peace conven
tion committee , ids "swinging around
circle' orations and several Interviews ,
printed from time to time , he could have
given the dates when President Johnson : i
pealed to Grant to belli him In his srreal. "rev
olutionary pioject. " in regard lo the dclinlto
statement that Johnson , ( ailing to mvuro
General Grant's co-operatlou , next undeitook
lo get him out of the country , there Is a w It-
ness who happened to hn\e ills notes of all
tlialocx'iirred regarding the tour In Mexico ,
and that is Col. Win. G. Moore , who was
President Johnson's private seeictar'y. From
Colonel Moore's notes , written in October ,
! & > { , the followim ; has been obtained : The
cabinet had for sometime under
consideration the quest Ion of the
occupation of 'Mexico by the French.
it was finally determined that Lewis 1) .
Clark , cx-coiiirc.ssim ; < n from Ohio , who some
time ago bud been appointed minister lo that
icpiihlic , but who lias not been able to pro
ceed to that country on account of Its dis
turbed condition , siiould be. given instruc
tions. Upon the president's own suggostiou ,
it was decided by the cabinet that impress-
ment should be given to his visit by sending
hlm'ln a vessel of the I'litlwl Slates navy ,
and bv having him accompanied by Gcu.
Grant. Jt was thought this wou.dglve con
siderable importance to tlio mission , and
Camnbi-H was instructed to advise freely
wilhj the general. 'Ibis arrangement , how
ever , was thwarted by Grant. Presi
dent Johnson .sent for Gen.
Grant with respect to the Mexican
mission , Oct. 17 , ibti.i , and informed him of
his Id.iaof scndingbim to that country , which
the genera ! evidently thought evinced some
pleasure. Tlio president then visited the
state department and informed Seward. As
iussrui'tions had just been completed , the see-
iclary came at once to tlie executive mansion
and lead them to Grant , with a view to learn
ing whether he had any suggestions to make.
Ho said lie had none. On tlie succeeding
Sunday , however , Oct. " 1st he addressed u
let er to tin1 president , saying :
"On further and full reflection upon the
subject 01 my accepting tlio mission proposed
by you in our interview of Wednesday
and again yesterday , 1 have most respectful
ly to say that 1 beg lo be excused from the
duty imposed. It is diplomatic service for
wh eh t am not titled , either by education or
taMc. It must necessarily bo conducted tin j
der the state department , with which mj
duties do not connect me. Again , then , !
most urgently b.it respectfully repent
mjr' rcipiest to tbo excused from the per
formance pfa dilty'ontlrcly out of my sphere
Hiid omt , too , which .can , so inucli better bo
performed by other ? * ; "
After 'tlio positive declination of Gen.
Grant , Gen. Sherman wan sent for and
evinced an entire willin nass to undertake
the duty. . ( Jen. Sherman , when o-shed when
he could bo ready replied "at ouee. " His
promptness was verv gratifying to tlie presi
dent. Just about tins time the papers hud
published animortbat Secretary Stanton waste
to resign as secretary of war , to bo sent
as minister to Spain and Gen. Slier-
man was to succeed him as pet-io
ta ry of war. Gen. Sherman In Feb
ruary , ISiXi , had written a letter to
President Johnson Mroiivly endorsing his
reeonsti notion policy. This had become
known about this period and had much to do
with the rumor of Sherman's appointment as
fecrctyry of war.

Johnson , the Courier-Journal will publish to
morrow thrco columns of Gen. Grant's testi
mony before t n house Judiciary committee ,
Fuly 1H , 1WJV just prior to the Impeachment
of President Johnson. The Courier-Journal '
will say cdit'H-lally that "It Is astonishing
that among all the wis : mon of the east ,
among all Iliosu so busv writing history , no
one siiould renumber that Gen. Grant did
uproar Iw ore tlio judlclnrv committee

tinctly that President Johnson did not pro

southern members and democrats of the
north. Hua hWrU Unit in his public speeches
