Political. IS THE REPUBLICAN PARTY? The orntors who at this time assume the dofeiwe of the Administration are ac customed to lay Iobs enphuHls upon the merits of the nion and measures which they defend, than upon the glory in the past, and the necessity in the future of the Republican party. In wildly mixed metaphors they appeal to it, as a banner, & bark, an anchor, and a fortress. It forms the principal motive of Logan? thunderous diapason, unit "of" the melli fluous minstrelsy of Conkling and Tease. It is not strange that patriots who get their living out of the party should be lieve in its "saeredness. But the spell of tlia oM and honored namo is powerful even with independent and unselush men. There aro those who will do-tiniin- rnuhdlv the violence of Sheridan the irredeemable weakness and rascality of Kellogg, the illegalities of the Tres i.lmit. and will even murmur against the caucus, who nevertheless feel that there is no safety, for the country or for human liberty, i...

Variety. The snow is seven feet deep in tho streets of Lowiston, Mo. Gen. Sheridan has sent a letter to the Methodist preachers' association at Bos ton, thanking them for their recent vote endorsing the President's Louisiana pol icy, and his own action in enforcing it. A Welsh clergyman in an obituary of a brother minister states that "he died in his harness, and his buckles were undone as noiselessly as the angel unbarred and unlocked the prison in which Peter was confined.1' A young man asked for a copy of Hom er's "Odyssey" at a book store in Nor wich, Conn., the other day, and the clerk not finding it, remarked in a reflective way, " Well,, we haven't any Of Homer's latest works in at present.". . At an anti-monopoly convention in Iowa, recently, some fellow bawled at the door: "Candidates are requested to step down stairs a few minutes." Then every body went down Btalrs except a deaf old fellow who wanted to run for jailor. A country newspaper tells this story of a new boy in o...
