It is the aminnnition funlished by the republican journals themselves that is being used against General Garfield, and it is a little curious that those now warmest in his defence, and least tolerant of any inquiry into his recoi-d, were then most pronounced in their charges. ïhus the Oincinnati Commercial, nnd er date of Miirch 31,1873. Speaking of Garfield ander lire it says : " And Garfield 's noble soul was sadly perturbed. He looked npon the scènes with grave apprehenatons, and regardp(l this un8eemly persecution of the righteoua with Buch horror that his soul was siek within him. He came near making a fatal blunder once;. After Ames nad testLfled the second time as to the giiilt of Garfield, fixed it vpon him clearly and unmistákábly, the general at once -notiflëd them thathe-.vonld come before them and refute the vile slanders that the mendacious man from Massachnsetts had poured out agamst him. The day and the hour came, but simultaneotisly came not Garfield. 11e had heard that Ames (wno was then reluctantly producing the receipts that Patterson had signed) had in his posaession other suen documenta to prove the correctness of hia testimony in respeci to othere, and the gallant general, whose flashing blade was wonttogleam down tlie line, in the glory daya of the past decade, round that to stay away was prudent, and he never appeared. The complaeent committee forbore to question Ames further as to Garfleld s statement and his own, and the papers were consequently never produced. So long as the liles of leading republican journals contain matter of this kind, it wil] be Mie upon the part of the Garfield presa to frown down all mention of his alleged delinquencies. The New York Tribune studiously avoids ffientionlng the nnme of Chester A. Avtluir, the Eepublican candidato for Vice-President. Heisa mouthful of " crow" that eannot possibly be in roduced between the teeth of the journal founded by Horace Greeley. Tlius the Tribuno assumes a virtue though it has it not. .
