If the Republicans have stuffed the ballot-boxes, “led on by General Sickles,” as a Democratic paper asserts, we call for an ex- posure of the facts, and we promise for our parts to hold up General Sickles, should the charge be sustained, to the same public cen- sure that we should commend Mr. Tilden if the same charge should be sustained against him. But is not Mr. Tilden, as a good citi- zen, quite as much interested in this investiga- tion as General Sickles ? Mr. Tilden by long experience has probably the profoundest faith in the incorruptibility of the Democratic voters of the Sixth Ward in this city, and in the spot- less purity of its ballot-boxes.

The proof of this he found in the reconstruc-

The Commis- sionership of Internal Revenue is a great public trust, which in this pi*oceeding the Commissioner has pros- tituted to a personal purpose, and has shown himself to be totally unfitted for the office that he fills. THE Tilden MYTH. The Evening Post had recently an amusing article upon the absurd stories about Mr. Tilden. They are tlie joke of the season. With very brief intervals some person or paper, assuming to speak with pecul- iar authority, issues a bulletin of Mr. Tilden's health and opinions and intentions, and taken together they read like the opening of Dickens's Tale of Txco Cities: “ It was the best of time
