The history of the disposition made of
tee money in the matter of the 11 salary
tud" would be very interesting if it could
pe bcown. The pay clerks of the Senate
s cd House are not at all communicative
on t bis subject, however, and we get our
information by piece-meal, as it happens
l 0 iea k out. It is safe to say that much
the larger number of the honorable mem
bers of both branches of Congress have
drawn their respective .shares, and in
tcost cases it is to be supposed they intend
to keep them. Once in a while we hear
of some conscientious gentleman who re
fjee? to haye anyth jpg to do with it. In
K ine case s their consciences do not trou
ble them until sometime after having
drawn their shares. This operation of
iaeconsciences affects different men in
different ways. Some return it to the
Treasury; others present it to schools,
orphan asylums, .churches, and benevo
lent institutions of some kind or other,
that is, they “put it where it will fin their
rpision) do the most good.”
Mr. Cox, of New York, has caused his
stiure ($4,812) to be returned to the Treas
ury. Ii was forwarded by bis brothel-in
law, acting as his agent, who, in a note to
Treasurer Spinner, stated that Mr, Cox
had cvp<>sed that clause of the bill, and
“desired to make bis opposition to the
measure emphatic by this disposition of
the mnney.’’ Queer, isn’t it, that he
should not have thought of that when he
drew ii about two months ago ? Emphatic ,
Mr. Garfield is out in a letter to his con
stituents justifying his action in vojfng
for the increase. One of his arguments,
which will strike most people as somewhat
peculiar, is thaf President Grant did not
veto the bill. A rather strange method of
reasoning upon the moral quality of his
own act.
Senator Sumner has adopted a method
that lifts him clear above all suspicion.
The other day, when he visited the pay
cler's to draw his salary for the last ses
sm be was informed that the sum of
H 444 was credited to him as back pay.
Ee immediately sat down and wrote a
note directing the Secretary of the Senate
to turn the amount into the Treasury. His
hands are clean.
Mr. Shellabarger.of Ohio,drew his share
and announces his intention of keeping
it. He says he thinks he is legally en
titled to it, that he has earned it, and that
be has a number of precedents for the
act. Mr. Shellabarger has recently ac
cepted an appointment as member of the
Civil Service Advisory Board- he
favor a similar principle of increasing the
salaries of other public servants? He is
one of the few politicians who
through a long public life an unsullied
reputation for honesty. If be had taken
a different position on this back salary
question it would have been worth much
■more than five thousand dollars to him.
Public opinion is almost universally op
posed to this measure. Occasionally we
see an article justifying it. It is certainly
right and proper that the government
should pay its servants salaries sufficient
to attract the best men, and to enable
them to live in comfort. These are the
only arguments th at have been or can be
nrged in favor of increasing the s/laries
of public officials. But salaries that will
attract good men will attract bad men
still more, and there is an end to that ar
gument. As to living in comfort it will
be difficult to make our people who do

The Greensburg Tribune and Herald
says: The Beaveb Radical, estab iisbed
in 1868, by Col. M. S. Quay. is one of tbe
best weekly papers in the State. Col.
Quay severed his connection with it, as
editor and proprietor, last December, and
Senator Bntan became the proprietor.
From a recent issue we find that it has
changed hands again by Senator Rutau
severing his connection with it. Not
withstanding these recent changes, the
character of the paper remains unchang
ed ; hence, win conclude that Mr. Curtis
has, in reality, been tbe actual editor all
tbe time.

At a meeting of the Republican Execu
tive Committee on Wednesday, the fol
lowing important resolutions were adopted
which provides for a change in our system
of nominating candidates. The resolutiong
explain themselves and to their considera
tion we ask the careful attention of Re pub
Means so that they can act upon the matter
intelligently at the primary meetings on
the 31 st inst.
Whereas, The present system of mak
ing nominations is believed to be unsatis
factory to a majority of Republican voters
ofthe county, because fraught with mani
fest injurjr to the party by concentrating
100 much power in the larger boronghs,
en&bling'candtdates; in some instances, to
secure a nomination by a small plWality
vote of the county electors, and
Whereas, It Is right and proper that
the Republican voters of the county should
express by their ballots, their approval of
this contemplated change in making nom
inations before it shall take effect, there
fore _
Resolved, That we submit to a vote ; of
the party at the primary elections on the
31st, inst., the following amendment,
which, if shall take effect in
the nominating convention of 1874, viz :
“That in case no one candidate shall re
ceive a majority of all the votes cast,
then the nomination for said office shall he
made by the convention.
Resolved,' That the requsite number of
tickets be printed and distributed for the
amendment and against the amendment
respectively, and the tickets balloted be
counted, and return made in accordance
with the rules of the party governing
the nomination of candidates.
Resolved, That the foregoing proceed
ings be published in the Republican pa
pers of the county.
We are in receipt of The Republic for
May, and it is richly freighted with con
tents. The opening article discusses the
question, “Shall .the Republican party

makes tbe support oi the party to be equiv

Piclcwicki —Pickwick! glorious old
Pickwick! Jolly, kind, impulsive Pick
wick! Let us grasp you by the hand
again as of old, when we first made your
acquaintance; when the tears rolled down
our cheeks for very laughter at the mis
haps of yourself and Messrs. Winkle,
Snodgrass and Tuptnan. We can see you
yet standing upon your chair, with one
hand under your coat tails, the other ex
tended .over the table, addressing the
“Pickwickian*," while upon the members’
faces we see admiration, respect and love
for th§ great and glorious leader.
A person’s heart most be cold indeed
that is not warmed after reading the hops
and mishaps of the Pickwick Club abroad.
Of Sam Weller, Jingle, Mrs. Bardell,
the Wardle, the Pat B »y—“ Damn that
boy, he’s asleep again !”—the scene in the
Justice’s office, the election of a new
member; in short the whole work.teems
with the very quintescence of humor, and
reserves to be read by every mao,, woman
and child on the face of the continent. A
great many people will not read Dickens’
because at one time be made some sport
of Americans in one of his works, after
being teted and received in the country
as no other author had been before. But
have we Americans not caricatured and
held up the English, as a laughing stock
in our papers and books for years? Be
side this, Dickens made ample amends to
the American people in after years, there
fore this should not deter us from reading
bis sublime creations; and I would say to
ail, young and old, put way those trashy
weeklies— Radical excepted—and dime
novels, and commence reading the works
nf Charles Dickens, beginning with the
Pickwick Papers, and take my word for it
you* will not stop until you have read
them all ; while at tbe same time you will
be storing your brain with useful knowl
edge, wit and wisdom. Mrs. Barbell.
Received a Call, —The Grteoeviil**
Advance says : The U P. congregation of
Steubenville, Ohio, have unanimously
tendered a call to Rev. J. R. Brittain, of
this place to become their pastor, naming
at the same time $3,300 per annum as a
compensation in case of acceptance.
Whether or not the call will be accepted
by him we cannot say. Of one thing we
feel certain, tbe U. P. congregation of this
place will do everything in their power
which they may deem consistent with
doty to retain him in his present position
as their pastor. Action of tbe
Steubenville congregation was a complete
surprise to Rev. B. inasmuch as-he knew
nothing from them of their intention till
waited on. by a duly constituted commit
tee on Friday evening last.

Edinburgh, Scotland, has been preaching

Church, near Hookstown. aod his labors

General Orders. No. 37
In, accordance with our rules and regu
lations, Friday, May 30th, will be observ
ed as a Memorial Day for the purpose of
strewing with flower-*, or otherwise dec-'
orating the graves offcomrades who died
in defence of their country during the
late rebellion, or who have since .passe’d
away. Citizens generally, military and
civic associations, churches and Sunday
schools should be invited to participate,
and in places where there are no posts of
of the Grand Army, it is hoped that the
citizens will join together for this pur
pose, that fitting services may be held in
every churchyard and cemetery where
our dead heroes sleep. ;
The manner of conducting these servik
ces is optional with Posts, but those, de
siring it, can obtain copies of the f >rih of
ceremonies, as furnished last year by mak
ing immediate application to A. A. G.
Attention is especially invited at this
time to the recommendation from the Na
tional Headquarters last year, “that flow
ers and shrubs be planted at each grave,
inu>rder that when we are gone, the sea
sons, in their ceaseless round, may in our
stead, adorn the sleeping places of our
comrades. By order o f

Hfedical Blunders.
Wfom the period when surgeois applied their
salves to weapon* instead-of wounds to the pres
ent wide-awake age, the medical profession has
often unwittingly taken side with Disease in its
conflicts with the human system. Even yet, in
spite of the teachings of centuries of experience,
some physicians believe in depleting their pa-
I tients, already seriously exhausted by sickness,
with powerful evacuants, emetics, salivants,
cautbaridal plasters, or the lancet. But, provi
dentially. public intelligence Is ahead of these
medical fossils, who belong, of right, to the era of
the Crusades! That powerful ally of nature in its
warfare with the causes of,sickness, Hostetler’s
Stomach Bitters, has opened the eyes of the
masses to the paramount importance of increasing
the vital strength of,the body when menaced by
disease. They understand that when the atmos
pheric conditions are adverse to health, it is wise
to reinforce the system with a wholesome tonic
and stimulant, and thus enable it to combat and
repel the depressing influence of an inclement
temperature. If the constitutional and animal
powers wore always thus recruited in the pres
ence of danger, the mortality from consumption,
bronchitis, chronic rheumatism, Ac., would be
much less than it is now. The causes which pro
duce croups, colds, qulnsey, diptheria and catarrh
seldom aflect a strong and active .vital system ;
and of all vitalizing preparations, Hostetler’s
Bitters has proved the most efficient. It is not
claimed that this standard tonic is a specific for
lung and throat maladies, as it is for dyspepsia,
liver complaint and, Interm Rents, but it is un
hesitatingly asserted that it is the best known
safeguard against all the atmospheric elements ot
disease mayi-lm
