The woman's crusade against drinking -saloons lias been resumed in Cincinnati. Tl.c House Saturday voted pen sions to Gen. Caster's wife and parents, $50 each. Republican opposition to Granl-ism is every where manifesting itself ia favor of Tildeu. The Courier Journal says the present republican ticket was conceived in Cin. and brought forth in iniquity Kmcrson Etheridgo has announced himself as an independent candidate from the MompliiH (Tenn.) district, for Congress. We suppose the Memphis Avalanche speaks b' the card when it Hays: ".Mr Emerson Ellieridge is for Hayes and Wheeler." Uobert Liuc.olnjfmly surving son of the late l'resident Lincoln will, it i reported, stump Illinois for the Democratic National ticket. Hayes, who promises not to he greedy and do like Oliver Twist, if elected President, is already sorr uiX his third term as Governor of Ohio. Seventy five out of the ninety-live colored members in the Lower House of the South Carolina Legis Lit n re cannot, read nor write. I'oor South Carolina! It wouldn't be a very ditlicult task to defeat 1 1. aye alone; but, when re enforced by the Administration and the whisky rings, he becomes more formidable. The Shell'3'ville GazetU presents Hon. Edmund Cooper as the choice Of the people of Bedford for the nomination for Democratic Elector from that Congressional District. ftov. Tdden has returned from Saratoga to A I Luny, being called 1)3' pressure of official business. It will be several weeks before he can devote ati3' attention to his letter of acceptance. In compromising on the sundry civil appropration bill, the Senate receded to the extent of about . 1,000,000, to which the House adds $'jr0,C:U0. Tne amount appro printed is 815,800,000. Judge David Davis, of the Supreme bench, having failed to manipulate, the St. Louis Convention to Kecure the nomination for himself, is now opposed to the nominee. It makes but little difference. As ('rant has shown a disposition for bayonet rule in the Union, so lias Hayes shown it in Ohio. And this is what Hayes means when he says "peace depends upon the supremacy of the law" in the South. Gov. Hayes .-ays, in his letter of acceptance: "What the South needs is peace, and peace depends upon the supremacy ot the law." This is a nice little hint, designed to pave the way for military rule in the South on election day. Gov. Hayes' talk about the school system is nothing but empty dema-gogisiu. The school system is in no dangin-, as everybody knows, lint this sort of hypocriiy helped him into the Governorship of Ohio last year, and now he wants it to cany him into the Presidency. Gen. Grant counts among his vtiemies the friends of llristow, ami is removing them from office as fast as the regular routine of this small business will allow. Tilden will have something to nay, before a great while, as to the tenure of the offices which these appointees are l'dl in ur- Obscure men like Gov. Il.iye-, when put forward as a candidate by u party that is on its last legs, are somewhat dangerous. Their verv obscurity often gives them strength. Many a time the favorite horse in the race is beaten by a scrub. Our Democratic friends must be up and doing. General Penuypatker has relieved Gen. McDowell in the command ( f the Southern Department. Gen. Pennypacker, it is stated, is the youngest Major General in the army. He has been stationed at Nashville for some time, and made many friends among the citizens of that place. It is not our purpose to do Gov. Hayes or his party injustice. We want to light through this campaign with fairness to every one wln.se interests are involved in it. Gov. IIaes is not a man of national reputation like our Tilden; but whatever of good in kim that 111x3-come to our knowledge shall not be withheld from our readers. The names of Tilden and Hendricks men without fear, without reproach, in whom there is no guile; hoiust in private life, honest in public service, men of true grit and undoubted ability they stand as a tower of Btrcngth a triumphal column of integrity UJ power, of di -. mty und vicUiiy. lEx uuvillo Sun. A neatly-bound volume entitled 'General Grant's Mo3t Noted Speeches" has just been put on sale. It sells well that is, it "sells" everybody who opens it expecting to find other than blank leaves. It is needless to s:iy why the leaves are all blank. If the indorsement of Grant in the Cincinnati platform does not drive the best men ot the Republican parly to the support of Ti'.den, it will be surprising. Reform will not consist in keeping Grant's appointees in place, and the only way to have a thorough change in this respect is to elect the Democratic candidate for l'resident. The Philadelphia Press continues to be grievous- tormented with communications from parties signing themselves "Tilden Republicans," who want their reasons for adhering to Tilden printed. This the Press declines to do, and says: "We have no space to spare for the purpose of helping the Confederate Democracy into power." Gov. Hayes saj'9 he stands by his record on the currency question. What that record is, there are few, outside of his own State, that know; but eveiy day brings to light some part of it, and it will not be long before every newspaper reader will become perfectly conversant with it. Will the people of the country think more of him when they know more ot his record? We- shall soon see. The dispatches represent President Grant as being morose and surly on account of the coolness with which he is treated by his par- t- latel3", and in a critical state of health, both in bod 3' and mind, caused by excessive dissipation. He drinks and smokes constantly, and f'-ars are entertained that in his present morose state of mind he will indulge more and more, and fi nally surrender to the grim monster before the summer is over. Mr. Tyner, the new Postmaster General, was one of Gov, lines' wannest anil most influential supporters in the Cincinnati Convention, and it looks as if the recent Cabinet changes were in the interest of Hayes. It is Hayes intention, you know, to perpetuate Grant-im. Grant is determined that his enemies shall be removed from office and his friends put in, .since Hayes has so plain- promised that they shall remain in oflice. Gov. Tilden is a live man and a practical reformer. His record is known throughout the length and breadth of the land. He makes no promises to be broken. By his works do we know him. He is the man who broke up the Tweed ring in New York city; he is the man who smashed the Canal ring in the great State of New York; he is the man who reduced the taxes of that State, in two years, from $ Io,000,0'0 to $8,000,000 just one half. This is the manner of man that the people of the L'nited States want for their Chief Magistrate. Gov. Hayes, in his letter ot acceptance, substantially' announces that he will continue the role of Grantism. In language not to be misunderstood by those who know what is what, he tells the country that he does not intend to make any changes in the civil service, except for notoriously flagrant cause. He will of course regard all of Grant's appointees as "altogether lovely" until convicted of high crimes and misdemeanors, and will continue them in office. lie wants "the officer secure in his tenure.'' Do the people want things to remain just as they are now? Do Ihey want better or worse times? News from General Crook's camp to J 1113- 12 was received at Cheyenne Saturday. Crook had received a dispatch from Terry confirming ( 'lister's fate. The camp had been tired into every night lately. Two hundred Snake Indians had joined Crook, but he was waiting for the Fifth cavalry or for Ute Indians be fore resuming offensive operations. Twent 3--live men of Comoany E, Second cavalry, were surrounded by Indians, and had to abandon their horses. It is said that General Gibbon's reserve force was met by victorious Sous dressed in General Custer's men's clothes, and mounted on their horses, firing into the soldiers. Judge Hoadly, of Cincinnati, President of the Tilden ratification meeting in that city, spoke in the most respectful terms of Gov. Hayes, but he clearly pointed out that while the Republican jiarty might be changing its conductors, it was not changing tracks or trains in the nomination of the man of; pliable weakness, pledged to Grant ism I13' the convention thatnomina- ted him. Theroeonld be . f. in this sort 'of change. The best interests of the country call for the harmonious support of the action of the Su Louis convention, which looks to reform in the administra lion of the government In his letter of acceptance, Gov. Hayes sa3"s that the resolutions of the Cincinnati Convention, which nominated him, are "in accord with his views." Here is one of the res olutioiis: "The National Administration merits commendation for its honor able work in the management ol domestic and foreign affairs, and President Grant deserves the con tinned and hearty gratitude of the American people for his patriotism and eminent services in war and peace." Will the people of the South will the people of the United States indorse this resolution ly voting for Hayes? Grant to each new apppointee to oflice: "I do not ask, are you capable, are j-ou honest? for capability is a thing with which this Adminis- t rati on has little or nothing to do, i and as for honesty, the less j-ou have to do with that the better it will be for you. All I ask of 3011 is that von will labor diligently in the interests of the party, and, 1111 like Rristow, Jewell and Pratt, will carefully avoid a too faithful discharge of 3Tour official duties. And remember, above all things, that the officer of mine who touches the whisky ring, save in way of darkness, touches death." In the course of the investigation by the Committee on the Real P2s tate Pools Saturday it seems that Serjeant-at-Arms Ord way's accounts appeai. C'apt. Blackford, of the Capital police, who went South as deput3- sergeant-at-ai ms for the Louisiana investigating committee, and who disbursed money on the trip, produced his account ot the items paid out while awa3', which he turned over to Ordway on his return. The chairman of the committee had before him, during the examination, the voucher put in by Ordwa3' of the same expenditures, anl nearl3' eveiy item in the voucher had been raised several dollars higher than the account turned in bv lilackford. Gov. Hayes has not the courage to oppose the Grant administration. He is afraid that he would be defeated if he did. Well, he might just as well have denounced the present administration, for all the good that it will do him or his party. He pledges himself to a continuation of the Grant policy; and, more than that, promises not to listen to the counsel of members of Congress as to the removal of an3' of Grant's appointees. How would the members of Congress like to have this their most pi ceioui privilege taken away from them? Gov. Hayes is very much mistaken if he thinks that Congressmen will be happy to throw their dearest privilege at his feet. They will spare no etfort to retain a privilege which no former administration has denied them. In vulgar parlance, Gov. Hayes has "put his foot in it." We have alluded in this number of our paper to some of the broken pledges of Gov. Hayes. Perhaps some of our readers ma3' want proof of t he assertions we make in this regard. These pledges were notorious in Ohio at the time the3' were made, and the fact that the3- were broken was made equally notorious by the Cincinnati papers. In 1S72 Hayes promised Win. E. Davis that he would not be a candidate for Congress in the Second District of Ohio. But Ha3'cs was nominated through arrangements made with his friends and friends of the Grant idministration, and he accepted the nomination with as much "gratitude"' as he accepted the nomina tion for the Presidency. He .was defeated, just as he should have been, by Gen. Banning. And in 187."), Haves promised Judge Taft, who is now a member of Grant's Cabinet, thut he would not be a candidate for the Governorship of Ohio. But he was nominated, because he could be made a tool of, and accepted the nomination. lie was elected through the help of hypocrisy, demagogism and clii-caner3'. In other words, his blarney about the public school system elected him, and defeated William Allen, who was and who is too hon est to stoop to such little things. Gov. I l.-ives accepts the nomination "with gratitude." We all remember how Gen. Grant accepted when nominated for the first term. There was much said about it at the time, by the press and the people of both parties, and there were bnt few who agreed that he showed any sort of del'teaey in his mariner of acceptance. . "Gratitude is not just the word that Gov. Hayes should have employed. It would have seemed more in place if he had expressed a sense of public responsibility rather than of personal obligation to his party. But this exhibition of bad taste on his part need excite no wonder; tor he is known (where ever he is known) to be as selfish as Grant himself. He endorses Grant, and would follow in Grant's footsteps, if elected. The government would be made to serve, as Carl Schurz says, "as a milch cow" for his relatives and favorites. The country ha been degraded under Grant's administration by such improprieties not to say outrages in appointments as were never heard of under any former administration. This is one of the abuses which the public want an I"" P" '"uses a cnangc end of. 1 r . . . . in this regard. But what are his promises worth? They are not worth the breath that utters them, or the ink that chronicles them; and they serve only to tickle the risible of those wljo know him. He once solemnly promised not to be a candidate for Congress, but disregarded his promise and became a candidate. Anil onl3' last 3-ear he promised not to be a candidate for the Governorship of Ohio; but he broke his pledge. His promise not to accept the Presidency a second time is worth about as much as any other of his promises. He never held more than one office to which he did not ride over broken pledges. This is not the manner of man that the people of the United States want for their Chief Magistrate. Kentucky offers "a full regiment, com posed exclusively of ex-Cuiifcd crates, to avengft Custer." Ilon. Dorsey B. Thomas is a little inconsistent on the finance question. He is opposed to any attempt to pay the State debt, upon the ground that we are. unable. lie makes a bugaboo of it, and says to a Memphis interviewer that the bi.ndhold ers would have to tax us at least SO cents on the hundred dollars for tins purpose. But in the same breath, he says in answer to a question, that 20 cents will be sufficient for State expenses. Now Mr. Thomas, thou jewel of consistency, why is it neces.saiy to raise the tax to SO cents in order to get a little surplus to pay the interest upon our bonds, if i!0 cents is sufficient Cor State purposes? Nobody wants to pay the whole debt at once, 1101 even any portion of it hot. We only want to meet the interest in good faith now, and wait for better times to provide a sinking fund foi liquidation of the principle. But re pmiiators like .Air. Thomas would frighten the people with an iSO cents bugaboo in ol der to defeat an hon est eilort to save the State credit and honor, while he wculd soothe them with a 20 cent humbug for selfish promotion. The Columbia Times is a new candidate for public favor. It made its first appearance last week, and is a neatly printed quarto. It ilies the bloody shirt party at its mast-head, though. We hardly think a republican paper can prosper in Columbia, though the editors, Messrs. A. M. Hughes, Jr., and W. N. Hughes, are veiy clever and popular gentle men we believe in Mauiy, their native couiit3'. We entertain none but the very kindliest feelings to ward the Messrs. Hughes person al!-, and hope they may make fortune and tame, but not y the success of the radical partv. UNIEIS FALSE COLORS. A Colored Man Who Has successfully Passed as a Woman for Twenty-s-even Years. Frances Thompson (colored) better known as -'Aunt Crutchie," who foi the past twent3--seven years has gone about this city in female garb, was arrested -esterda3-, and alter medical examination was pronounced a member of the male sex. The quartette of medical experts who worked upon the case also discovered that the dusk' Thompson's lower limbs were as crooked as a young dogwood tree or a ram's horn. This deformit- served as an excuse foi the pretended female cripple to promenade the streets on crutches. Thompson is well known to the people of this cit3" as a low minded criminal of the most revolting character. The recorder im posed a fine of $7Q upon the prisoner. Not being .able to pay the line a lot of male toggery was put upon the impecunious Thompson, and he was sent out on the chain gang to work the streets. An immense crowd of curious idling people collected about to see the changed lis: nre of the thick lipped, foul mouthed scamp, and finding it impossible to drive them off, Thompson was sent to the lock up again. Known then as Miss Frances Thompson, this person testified before the Washington Congressional Committee to have been outraged a number of times during the Memphis riots soon after the war. Her evidence ap pears at length in the oflicial report. It is just probable Mr. Thompson lied. McT)iptin Avalanche On the tlth of August the democratic pam- of Tennessee will in convention assembled nominate its candidate for Governor. Who the man will be no one can now fore tell, although indications point most strongl' to the rcnoinination of Gov. I'orter. However, it may, in its wisdom, name some other man. To sa- that Gov. Porter has given general satisfaction would hardl-tell the true tale, but that he has done the best his capacities allowed him none need deny, lie has been honest, faithful, and industrious, and we suppose an old party usage would give him an endorsement, but if it should not, Gov. Porter can cert ui n I nut rniniiliin Tn tho - - - . . .... i ....... . . . 1 i.ji, 1 past it has been usual and ivi.n binding and expected, that every member of a part- should sustain and endorse his party and its administration of affairs, if it has been honestly and faithfully performed. Two years ago when Gov. Porter canvassed the State, he allowed Mr. Mayn3rd, every day, to assail his party and its record of administration, and never did he attempt to give one word in its defense. P.y his personal attacks upon Mr. Mav-nard, and for him, the fortunate alr-itation of the civil rights (uestion, he was elected by a large majority, but he cannot expect, under such circumstances, to hear a very cordial defense of his administration made by his party, when he was the first to set the example of iiitirin" all others save himself. We have no grudge on th it score, having no personal grievances effected thereby, but as well wishers of principles. precedents an.l success, we regretted to see such a selfish course adopted by one win alone by party had been advanced. Gov. Porter may find it, ere the election in November next, an unpleasant attitude to be in, an. I if he should need the a.-sisiani-e of his democratic brethren to help him defend a verv weak administration, he should notgrum bit? if he failed to get it. It seems to have been a principle ic Tennessee politics for some years past to never allow any man to become ioo popular, ami the consequence has been that no sooner than one man began to be a little bit more pu-lar th.au another, then attacks were either openly or covertly made against him by his own party friends, and thus forced down in public esteem.
