It ig not Tvell for a people, especially a republican people, to Bold the doctrine that then treilarg depends npon the leadership o an Individual. In the first place. It IB noe true that a great people can be unable to care for them selves to the dfist advantase, save taronscn some ons ef the neroea of the day. The people ol tlie Halted states, or a very large proportion ol them, are too much in the habit of talSlng, as If Grant haC crushed the rebellion and iras paying tiie debt, ap< everything worth doing. As a matter o: fact, els performance as President has not been ex- cellent. The country has grown out of debt am into peaceful trays, as It would have grown if any one of a thousand citizens had been President. His merits have been rather In not doing, than in dotne. He Is not an Incorrigible and furious meddler like JLuiiy Johnson, and that is one comrort; and he is being slowly-taught by events, the amnesty passage in liia message being an indication of DI ogress thai Is cheering. Tbe President's eiamDle'ln office hot oeen gbod. We do not cnarge him With havinj been corrupted by presents, bnt his present-taWna has done mischief. With the endorsement of the people lot a second term the result would be dis- astrous, fhs distribution ol offices among his rela- tives and hlB and their personal frleudirlias iniected the whole civil service wita nepotism. The un- wholesome resmt is to be seen on all sides Ills frequent and protracted absence irom Washington has promoted absenteeism; lias propagated tu< tueory that official duties ere matters oj much smoUnz aad riding about, and teas it re- quires agreat deal of sen-Indulgence In the guise of recreation la order to be in fashion. Sot has the theory been propagated, tie practice has "been bromoced. The absenteeism ana nepotism, and present taking of tue President, which we believe have seriously demoralized the clvfl service do pot seem to grow out of inherent carelessness or vlelousness; the President has siinpiv too far ac- cepted his adulators' estimate of his per- sonal Importance, of his indispensable con sequence. He has too nearly accepted the flattery that would persuade a Chief Magistrate that the ofllce 13 a testimonial of publio regard for him personally, and is to be taken as a compliment and useu at convenience. Thronghoui tne administration of President Grant nas aupeareO tte evidence naat he was iess appreciative of tae item. demands.oflpuLlic tmty than susceptible to the allurements or private interest and convenience and personal feeling. The best thought or the country is in favor of a change In the Chief aiagisiracy. The tone of the administration shonld be improves, as It cannot be Improved without that change, fetill the chances are that nothing can be done. The democracy will, In all probabuity, see to n that Gru.nt is ie-eiecled, and wa can stand it ir they can. AEFSEMEfTTS. OIj uipia Theatre. "Hnmpty Dumpty" on Monday nun dred and tool, a start.

Naturally, an that day approached, public Interest began to manuest itself In the murderer and all the singular phases of the tragedy. No man Cad a fulleroralaticr trial; every indul- gence and privilege assed for him and in con- sonance with judicial proprieties was promptly granted by the Court, and at the close of the trial, when the dreadful sentence of death was pro- nounced, the en tue force of public opinion agreed that tne verdict was a Just one, and for the sentence the Oonrt had no option. Jurtga Depue was meieiy the mouthpiece ot the law as !an' tax. a in the statutes. Within the past wePtt, since people have begun to recur to the tragedy and discuss it once more in all Its bearings, some statements of an eaaally Blngu'ar as startling character to be breathed in certain q.uartere. Tnese weie, in brief, to the ef- fect that, after all, there was some ground for thinking that Botts was >OT A MUKDEKEB; that, had he been allowed to go on ths stand and tell als own story, oa a new law in 3Jew Jersey grants him power to do, and as he desired to do, he would have been able to clear JumselT. at least from murder In the first degree; and toat, in short, his whoie; case, so far as his counsel was concerned, was miserably botched. Aa a matter of general oe- llef In Sewart it may be proper to say here that the transportation ol the insanity dodge from its blos- soming place In the Courts of Gotham to the pure atmosphere of the Jersey Oyer and Termlner entirely robbed it of its bloom, and it militated agatnot the prisoner rather than otherwise. With a desire to deve'op any state- meats snch. as these and and how much ihey were to be rehed upon a HtRiiD representative, accoai- bauled by two friends, visited the EESSS County Jail on Sunday ami sought an Interview with the murderer. The Waxden, Colonel Johnson, said that Botts was greatly OPPOSED TO BBIMJ EiTEEVTEWEB by reporters and had declined the day before to sea one Irom a Sew York two cent slmet. said the Co'onei, "I'll see wh.it caa oe done In your case." Alter an absence of Inky twenty mlnntes the Warden returned with a smiling countenance, read as piarn as print, "All rtjnt." Botts would receive tne EtEEALu interviewer, and in lie anil his friends passed to the Jail oroper. Tne murderer's cell is -erected on the ground floor, the fourth from tlie corner, and was distinguished from the others in tnat its iron-bound gate was shut, while taose of tie others swung open, tenantless. THE INTEBVISW. Swinging open the gate of the dooaea mart's ceil the writer and his Inends passed in and were intro- duced to rfotts by the Warden, who as he retired- locked the gate on tne outside. Ihs doomed man arose from his seat, closed tne large jail Bible which, he had been readme, and removed twochaus off the bed to the floor, so as to make the visitors com- fortable. .Being over six reet high, he natt when ne stood erecr, nearly tono-ieu the csnlng of the cell- He was dressed la a blue coat and vest, shepherd nldid pants, wiilte cotton souts, Oxford tie shoes and white shirt ana collar, minus a necktie. Though provided with good plam food irom the Warden's own sable, is was plainly TO-ole tliaj ha LOST A GOOD DEAL OF FLESH since tne day of his sentence. He is a moderate smoker, and was emoyrng a aion? with tha Holy Book. He wore the same dull, stolid, staring expression of countenance described and noticed on the trial. His great gray eyes were mure sunken ever- merbOtinPL and not the least prepossessing in nerertlieless, little or tae phrenological, iacial or bumpilal characteristics of tne murderer. In his manner there crops out now and then evidences of a considerate, thoughtful and even gentle nature. In his speech there 13 an Impediment, which mases It difficult for him to continuously Interest the listener in his narrative. His cell was comfortabla as cells go, and was carpeted. On the whl ewashed wall were a couple of cards, sncn as are placed in Sunday schools. Oa one or thorn, la good bold type, was the verse or Acts in which tue jailer ada tne Apostle, "WHAT MUST I DO TO BE SAVED Of Ms own accord he began to of his trial, and went over several points which he considered Important. In tne firs- place he recurred to the point in the evidence where it was sworn that some time prior to the murder he had been overheard to say to somebody that he was "going to have a settlement soon." This remarK was believed to nave aaa reference to Halgted, but Botts said that It referred to his business relations with one Din TucSer. In relation to the pistol he says he bought it so to defend himself against; Halsted, who ha had been time and time again warned had declared his intention to "shoot the Ignoramus (Bolts) on sight.'1 me point did not come out In evidence. Botts said that he had twice tried to sell this pistol, once to a man named .Frank Sirubleu He said tbat alter he broKe up housekeeping with Sirs.

H the republicans rn England did decide to act at once I sttould feel disposed to assist them as far as possible, In tte strong hope that their success would be of vast Benefit to all the people of the United Kingdom- Cm: real war, after all, is against the oligarchy of the British Islands and not against the JBngiisft people, who never beiore now had u in tneir power to do poor Ireiand much, harm or much good, and whom I do not hold responsible for the injuries that have bean done us as a race anu a nation by the rulers of Britain. As for what ibis eveainz paper calls the time-Honored method of freeing Ire- land, that s nonsense. THE ORIGINAL PROJEOT of the genuine, original and now only Fenian or- ganization was to aid those who endeavored to up- sei the oresent form of government in .England oy sowing tha seeds of revolution in the heart of tne British is, in what ara known as ths British Islands. The Invasion of Canada was only the project of a number of misguided men who seceded from the Fenian Brother- hood and who gave up the aosurd idea not recently, but over a year ago. With regard to the Red River movement the HBBALD showed very clearly few since that the Fenians had notmng whetever to do wia it> we certainly do not omit taking Jnto account; the expected action of the English republicans.
