Certain dissatisfied Republicans are combin­ in g with sundry Democrats, a il under tbe lead o f Mr. George Wilkes, oi the Spirit of thp Times, fo r the purpose o f compassing the do- feat o f General Grant’s candidacy fo r re-elec­ tion. T h e bitterness o f Mr. W ilkes’ editor­ ials clearly show that i t is not patriotism, but tom e personal reason, as yet unknown, that prom p ts this line o f action. Mr. W ilkes announces the plan o f attack to be tbe passing o f a constitutional amendment lim iting th e tim e d u ring which a m an may oc­ cupy tbe presidents) clm ir to one term, thus m aking G rant ineligible for re election. We object.to this plan for v arious reasons: First, G rant who ba* done so much in peace •n d war d eserves well o f the country, not ill. T h e moral effect o f honoring him will be felt by our .nation w h en th e present has passed n to history. H e is the reoresentative soldier o f tbe arm y o f the Republic. It will be well fo r posterity to know that fidelity to one’s country is rewarded, and treason is made Odiom. Again, we a re living in a time when regard to courtesy i* deemed s virtue. W h y make this great a n d good c o n stitutional a neadmeni, m erely f o r th e sake o f defeating the hero <>f th e w ar t L e t it be m ade fo r better reason tbiin thut. L e t it be made w h e n it can be w ithopt flinging insult in tbe face of the re­ presentative o f the nation’s defenders. •Again, tbia is n o t a reform in the way it is presented. T h e would-be reform ers shout for the one term principle aa being a bulw ark o f liberty, b u t they p ropose to e rect the great safe­ guard i f liberty at a lim e when it will defect th e wiil o f the people. T h e enemies of G rant forsee that the .people have alread.v determ ined f o r whom they will vote. They forsee th a t neither in convention nor at the pipits will 'It be possible to defeat Grant in 1872. H e n ce these opposing factions attem| t strategy in the name o f liberty, to contravene , th e will o f the nation. W e proteal. This is n o t reform nor justice. Liberty’s guns are tnrned upon herself. Again, the very reform proposed can be reached in an easier way. If G rant is re nom inated for a n o ther tcim , be becomes then by the nature o f things, a one-term President. B e cannot h o ld a third term. W e have had one good adm inistration, w h y not have a second; and a better? Then daring his sec •n d term the proposed amendment enn be passed w ithout opposition. I t will not seeui invidious. I t will n o t b e thrusi upon us a t so nnpropitiiius tim e as tbe present when tbe nation has disturbance enough in its great efforts to reform itself. I t will not stand a s a constitutional pillar, having racked tbe R t- public in its erection m o re tban it can c o u n ­ teract in • generation. I t will not be a mon­ um e n t o f bitterness. I t will be wisdom Strengthened by love. W e appeal to tbe men w h c u a k p o n r law s and manage our charters c f liberty, to pause. I t is grander to do well th a n mjuch, io be wise tuan partisan. E v e ry President from Van Buren to Lin­ coln has had the second Congress in his term • t posed to him. The Speakership in Con­ gress changed hands u n d e r Van Buren, Tyler, P o lk , Taylor, Pierce and Buchanan. I t re­ m ained constant under Lincoln, continued R e p u b lican in spite o f Johnson’s defection, and has been in Republican hands under G rant. In all the y e ars from Andrew Jack- •on to ibe preoent time, Ltoooln and Grant a r t the only Presidents who have retained Ibe Jjo p u ta confidence as mahifeated by the pop­ u lar vote fo r Congressmea. T h e present A d m inistration has a m ajority of thirty-eight In IheSenatb a n d thirty-aeven in tqe House, ~ w h ich is q u ite though fo r all practical pur­ poses.
