The Atlanta Sun, upoa’iiug of his death, sava :
This most remarkable man has been most unex
pectedly stricken down, if not iu the prime of life,
at least in the full vigor of his powers. Os his
many excellencies, we have not time now to speak ;
of his faults, sand who has them not,) we have no
inclination to apeak even if we had time. May

TVo Oltnngrc of Poller.
For more than seven years past, the Federal
Government and a ma|ority of the State govern
ments of onr so-calle l Republic, have been under
the control and manapemont of the Radical Re
publican partv, with Democratic minorities in op.
position so weak and insignificant as to offer little
impediment to the full realization and execution of
their most iniquitous and oppressive Higher Law
Circnmstauces and events hnvo occurred and
combined so continuously and opportunely, and
seemingly in furtherance of their plans and wishes,
as to savor strongly of destiny; and the South
knows to her sorrow, that the Rvdicats have
promptly seized and actively improve 1 every on
portunity, with that presistnneo and energy which
always characterizes fanaticism. To every now
imposition and tvranny witli a fortitude and pa
tience which is alike an example to the world and j
a shame to our rulers, wo have euVrutte l with
out a show of resistance. But, in ail Uar helpless
ness, degradation and misery, the South has clung
to tho hopo that the magnanimity and generosity of
th" Northern people, and more than all, the cool
and dispassionate oonviothms of "the sober second !
thought," would at an early day effect, a change in
the policy if not the head of the Administration,
and prompt a milder and more lenient govern
ment—something, at all events, approximating
We, who havo never believed or expected that
the re-election of Grant would Cause much, if any,
alteration for the better in treatment and 'fovem
ment of tho South, are not greatly surprised that
his forthooraiug Message is to contain no intima.
tion of au intention to modify his policy in onr
loelialf ; hut to those who havo “hope l against
hopo," and bravely refused to despair of the Re
public, this information wilt boa sad disappoint
The President ways that, ns his endeavor will
be hereafter, as it has boon in the past, to perform
his entire duty, to the host of his ability, and
looking to tho interests of tho whole country, h >
doee not hoc that any*change of policy Is accessary
or advisable, or a more friendly attitude towards
the Routh requisite, nor will ho recommend to
Congress nn extension of Amnesty to those exclu
ded liy recent legislation. As to the subject of
Civil Service Reform, while he desires competi
tive examinnt ona, he does not think tlvit office
should ho given to the enemies of (he Administra
tiou, to the exclusion of its friends, (and he might
say Br.r,*TtVKs). He intends to deposit the money
awnrltdby ti e Geneva Arbitrators against Great
Britain, in tho U. S. Treasury, and keep it there
until Congress appropriates it. At present, whon
not occupied in receiving the congratulations of
his henchmen and parasites, he is laboriously pon
dering tho weighty subject of pardons, ni l has
concluded that n certain Obi. 15 overman, who
was convicted of the ilinplo and harmless pastime
of stealing money, while an officer in ihe
Baltimore Custom House, and is now very sorry
he did it, shall certainly receive absolution, be
cause ho fought furiously against the South, and
stole cotton and negroes bravely during the late
war. He does not any so, or even intimate such a
tiling, but no doubt in the course of human events,
he may devote a leisure moment to the Ku-li*nx
prisoners, tried and convict® 1 by corrupt carpet
bag fourth and negro juries, for imaginary crimes,
and non- languishing and dying in Northern pris
And this, so far as can be ascertained, is the
sum and substance of the fotlrtheoming State pa
per, for which so many anxious thousands are
eagerly looking witti a pitiable mingling of hope
To tho scalawags and carpet-baggers it will bo
a Message of great joy—an extension of license to
those now in power, and n Ito -at Commission to
those who are not, for the further plunder of tho
National Treasury and tho devastation of the
llouth. To many of the people of tho “conquered
provinces," this Message, if as heartless and vin
dictive as intimated, will be “the last feather on
cornel's back," and will crush ami annihilate nil
hope of future prosperity, reconciliation and fra
The prospect at present is certainly gloomy
enough to dishearten the most hope fill patriot: and
the only eourso left us to pursue is to be patient
and expect nothing, that we may not he disap
