Tho Federal Attorney General has given
an opinion in tho famous Chorpening caso to
the effect that tho Postmaster General is not
authorized to pay any money on tho claim,
that Chorpening may bring suit beforo tlio

the money from the Treasury by an act of

A number of Mormons aro now on trial
for tho murder of a largo party of emigrants
in 1857. Tho evidence against them appears
to bo overwhelming. Tho murder was
cold blooded and most shocking affair.
Men, women and children wcro shot down
in cold blood after surrendering. Of tho
children those that wcro too young to tell
tho talo were spared, and theso wero divided
among tho Mormons. They probably do not
now know their own origin. Lee, tho leader
of tho murderers, now on trial, attempted to
turn Statc8 evidence, and thus escape pun
iahmcnt, but his tale was refujed.
A party capable of holding to its princi
pics, and of persistently resisting to tho ex
tent of its ability tho encroachment of an
unscrupulous governmental majority, mtox
icated with power, and reckless of tiio public
good, must command tho respect of man
kind, even if it should err; but when obvi
ously striving only for the right, and to fee
euro to tho masses tho solid advantages of
proper government, it impels the admiration
even of many of its political opponents,
This is tho position which tho Democratic
party of tho United States now occupies.
Isaac M. Singer, tho inventor of tho Singer
sewing machine, died in London, on the 23d
inst., aged 64 years. Although said to be
the inventor, his machine was only an im
provctnent upon tho Howe. Having failed
in early life as an actor and theatrical man'
ager, ho turned his attention to invention.
His first effort resulted in the production of i
a carving machine, which does not appear to
have been n success. While visiting a me
chanic's shop to contract for tho construction
of this machine, his attention was called to
certain defects in the Howe sewing machine,
being constructed there, and ho at onco set
to work to remedy them. In a week or two
ho succeeded. As soon as his machines
wero put in tho market, Howo brough suit
against him for infringement. During the
pendency of tho legal proceedings, it was
discovered that it would bo shown on trial
that the most important principle in tho
sewing machine had been patented loug bo
foro either Howo or Singer's invention, by
gome obscure (perhaps dead) and unsuccess
ful inventor. Howe, Singer and other pat
entees and manufacturers of other machines
then combined, dropped their suits, and
over afterwards had an inserest in each
other's machines and sales. Up to that time
they had iiot acquired wide or general pop
ularity. Singer commenced an energetic
ttystcm of advertising, which acquainted tho
public with their merits and brought them
info general use. Tho profits of tho soveral
patentees rolled up into millions, and it was
hut recently that Mr. Singer gavo a newly
married daughter u million of dollars as her
marriage portion. For somo years past ho
has been rosldimr in different European
cities, his changed niodu of life consequent
upon his largo fortuno having entailed bad
health and finally brought early death upon
In bono respects tho sewing machine has
been of immense public advantage Tho
great draw back upon it is that it has so
largely added to tho extravagance of female
attire, and given riso to Mich distorted forms

The Stato Treasury.
As n part of tho history of tho times wo
lint tho opinion of tho Attorney (leneral
of tho State, showing that tho Hadleats havo
so legislated that tho Stato Treasurer Is no
onger required to mako a monthly ulato-
mentof tho condition of tho Sinking I'liuil
:md where it isdepodtcd, as had formerly
iceii rendered necessary by a wholesome and
honest law, nnd that tho Auditor Octicra! Is
ibuMUtely debarred by law from inquiring
into ill Tho legislation to shield tho fund
from examination was enacted at tho session
of 1874, by the most corrupt and base LeyMa
live body that ever assembled in thi Common-
wealth, or in any other, unless, possibly, it is
equaled or exceeded by somo of tlio negro'
carpet-bag Legislatures of tho Southern
States. Under tho existing laws, therefore,
and by the connivance of Got; Jlartranft,
over two millions of dollars of tho peoplo's
money paid by hard taxation is locked
up in tho brcceliM pocket of Mr. Hob.
Mackcy, upon which ho may nnd no doubt
docs draw interest to his personal advantage,
whilo tho Stato bonds (which this money
should promptly redeem) aro left to draw
interest which must bo paid by tho people.
Outrage is a mild term for this Kail leal buc
caneering transaction it is a gross fraud
upon tho people, perpetrated over tho signa
ture of John Hartranft direct robbery 1
Is there no remedy ? Auditor General
Temple is yet Commissioner of tho Sinking
I'timl. When tho board again mccta (in a
few davs now) let him demand that every
lollar in tho Sinking Fund shall bo at once
used in redeeming Stato bonds. Ho can
make the demand let tlio twodtadical Com
missioners refuso or neglect if they dare.
Tliero will be timo between this and tho
election to expoo them and to fix the prop-
r responsibility upon Gov. Hartranft.
Under these circumstances it is not at all
singular that Treasurer Mackcy publishes
monthly statements, over his alhdavit, that
there aro millions in tho Sinking Fund, but
only contemptible sums ranging from less
than two to thirty dollars in the Stato Treas
ury applicable to tho payment of current ex
penses and appropriations. Hut why aretho
millions kept in tlio Sinking Fund, if there,
instead of redeeming interest-hearing bonds
with them ? No earthly reason can be as
signed for such action other than tho per
sonal purpose or profit of tho Stato Treasur
er I And it was to enable him, his partners
nnd'his party, to profit by tlio interest on
millions of the pcoplo s money that Ciov.
Hartranft approved tho legislation dctai led
by tho Attorney General 1
Spccio Payments, lirokors, anil Subsidized
City Organs.
The efforts of tho broker-subsidized city
press to mako a political touch-stono out of
the financial muddle are absurd and must ut
terly fail. Hut for tho good sense and integ
rity of tlio pcoplo theso metropolitan dicta
torial broker-organs would havo produced
repudiation long ago by their iusancdemauds.
Every body is in favor of specie payments
and resumption will be effected when honest
and economical administration enables the
government to receive greenbacks in pay
ment of duties upon imports and to pay its
current expenses in coin, or its equivalent,
and not before. The idea of gold or silver
circulating as currency whilo tho country is
flooded with millions upon millions of irrc-
dccmablo government notes, or notes secured
by government bonds and not redeemable in
cash, is simply an extremo absurdity.
No matter what opinions any body' holds
about the ability to resume, the propriety, or
timo or manner of resumption, it is quito
sure it cannot occur umil tho government
passes into tho hands of honest and ccononi'
ical agents, who will not permit tho expend!
lure of ono dollar except for necessary pur
poses, who will promptly and honestly collect
all the revenue and apply it to its proper pur
poses, and who will reduce Stato and Feder
al expenditure fully one-half, and will h
restrain municipal expenditure and taxation
as to relieve tlio private citizen of tlio great
burdens that now rest upon every one. Ai
to a statesman's opinion whether spccio pay.
mcnt can ho reached in 1S7!), or a year ear
lier or somewhat later, affecting his party
standing, it is sheer nonsense, scarcely less
lacking in senso than that a mild contraction
of non-interest bearing currency will effect
or a prodigious expansion of bank issues
will promote it.

oud cry about llin "Evan's loal." A large
sum of money dun to tho Stato from tlio
'Vderal government had been collected and
pocketed by an nppoiuteo of Governor
Geary and his cimfeiloiiiles. What has

If Hartranft has made a "good Governor,"
hy is it that ho lias done nothing in behalf

been alloat of illegal transactions in the

Bufferings of the people in consequence. We

ho records will bear us out in the assertion
that Gov. HartranlVs administration has
been coity in the history of the Mate,
and a largo sharo of tho extra expense is in
that department of the Government which
falls under his iniincdiato control. Whore
is tho evidence that he has mado any earnest
effort to reduce tho cost of governing the
Stato to a figure corresponding with tho less
ened ability of tho pcoplo to pay taxes ? His
pretended sympathy with tlio misfortunes of
is fellow citizens lias never taken tho shape
f an offer to throw oil' a portion of his sal
ary, which is nearly treble that of any pro-
ious Governor.
Serious as these indictments are, all three
f them combined aro trifling as compared
with Gov. Hartranft's cottrso rclativo to the
new Constitution. The whole public are fa-
liliar with tho looseness nnd corruption
which prevailed in tho Legislature a few
ears ago. They became so glaring and
dious that tho people roso with ono accord
and demanded their suppression. Tlio evil
was cured as far as legal measures can effect
thy the adoption of the new Constitution
an instrument which coincided so fully with
tho wishes of tlio people that they endorsed
by a voto which amounted to practical
unanimity. Where did Governor Hartranft
tand in tho struggle which ended m tho
adoption of tlio Constitution ? His personal
acts and influence tho labors and influence
f his creatures and political associates
was against this great measure of reform,
which the people wcro nearly a unit in favor

A "good Governor!" Pshaw! In what
espect, pray tell us? What great measure
of reform has ho effected ? What rings has

tion that rises abovo tlio dead level of medi

The gravo question now being discussed
by tho sensational press of the cities is
whether Gen. Grant's grand-son born July
11, can ever become President, as the Con
stitution prohibits any but nativo born citi
zens from being elected to that elevated po
sition. The urchin in question was born in
New Jersey but his father is a biibjcct of
Great Hritam and his mother was sojourning
temporarily in tho United .Stales. Wo do
not think it necessary for tlio public i be
much exercised about tho question just
If city editorial brains can do nothing
better than grind out flatulent diatribes about
Gcu, Grant taking an airing at a pleasant
sea shore, instead of roasting alivo among
the musquitocs nnd malarious atmosphere- of
Washington city, or getting off stupid wit
about him being raised to tho not uncommon
dignity of a grandfather, they would servo
their readers by drying up. About here, at
least, grand fathers aro a very common af
fair and babies aro too plentiful for tiny to
become subjects of interesting newspaper
discussion. They aro all nlco little feuckcrs
but too common to command remarkable
public attention.
Ex-Senator James A. liayard, of Dela
ware, thinks "tliero is no question as worthy
of the attention of tho public mind lu-day as
tho question of corruption. It must-be met,
and met speedily, too, if wo aro at all deter
mined to preserve the institutions founded by
our fathers." In regard to tho third term,
tho Ex-Senator declares that everything de
pends upon tlio fall elections of this year,
"Should they go against tho administration,"
ho says, "you will hear no more of tho Third
Term j but if they should go othcrwiso, take
my word for it General Grant will lose no
opportunity in drawing comfort from it, and
you will seo him tho Republican candidate
for tho Presidency next year.
Russel Errett has been appointed chief or

that these men have pledged themselves to

nquiry in regard to tlio duty of tint Stato
freasiiier to make report to tho Auditor
General of tho investment of moneys he-
onging to tho sinking und, I respccttully
uli in i L the following opinion :
Section IV of articlo XI, of tho Constitu
tion of 1838 created a sinking fund for the
redemption of the public debt, did not namo
the depositary of tlio fund, nor provide for
statements of its amounts or tho places of
ts deposit or ol the manner oy wlncli it was
secured. Various acts ot Assembly prior to
13th April, 1870, provided that the Stato
Treasurer. Auditor General and Secretary of
tlio Commonwealth should reeeivo the reve
nues designated therein and with them re
deem tho evidences of Stato indebtedness.
They wcro tho custodians of this portion of
tho public money, and charged with the
duty of making proper reports to tho Legis
lature, and of keeping records for inspection.
The act of 13th April, 1S70, changed their
relationship to the fund. It directed tlio
State Treasurer to give security to the. Com
monwealth in the sum of 500.000, and re
quired him to keep two ledgers, called re
spectively tho "General Revenue Ledger"
and tlio "sinning j-unu j.cugcr, ami "to
causo all moneys received from revenues be
longing to the sinking fund to bo credited on
tho day of their receipt to the commissioners
of the sinking fund, in tlio said sinking
fund ledccr." and upon tho first business
day of each month, to mako and deliver to
tho commissioners ol the sinking lunda ccr-
ificato under his hand and teal of ollicc.
showing the balance duo them on b.iid sink-
nir fund ledirer for tho preceding month.
Tno commissioners of tlio sinking fund are
still charged with tho duty of a faithful ap
propriation ol the mud, ol Keeping public
records ot the condition ot mat portion oi
tho money of tho Commonwealth and of
making reports to tho Legislature. They
were no loncer tho recipients of tlio revenuo
set asido for tho redemption of tlio State
debt. TliCfC wero directed to bo paid into
tho Stato Treasury. Iho 10th section of tho
ict of 1870 provided inter alia that "it shall
bo tho the duty of tlio Stato Treasurer on
tho first Monday of each month, to make a

ul the different sums which jro to mako up

Constitution came next in order ot time, it
provided lor tlio inviolability of tho sinking

tho necessary reserve should bo Used to pay
tlio Stato debt cither directly or through the

amount lequireu lor current expenses, ami
shall bo secured and kept as may ho provided
by law. Monthly statements shall bo pub
lished, showing tho amount of such moneys,
where tho same are deposited, and how se

statements" embraco merely tho "necessary
reserve," and do not extend to and liieiudo
tho moneys bclonginc to tlio Kinking fund.
On tho 0th of May, 1S74, tho Legislature
passed an act entitled' an act supplementary
to tho seveial acts relating to tho Stato
Treasury and to tho commissioner of the
sinking luiui," Aitiiougii tins act uicki
repealing claiuo vet a comparison of it with
tho act of ll!th April, 1870, will show that
in many respects, which need not uo in
stanced, tho earlier act is supplied and su
perseded. It will, however, bo observed,
that the act of 1870 designated tho "first
Monday of every month" as tho timo when
tho Stato Treasurer should mako his reports
to the Auditor uenerai, hut that tho act ot
1874 mado a change in this respect, and di
rected that tho report should be mado on
tho "first business day of eaeli month." It
is trim thcro can never bo a wide dillereuco
in point of time between these periods, but
it is eouallv tiuo that an alteration in tills
respect was lntenucu by tno Legislature, a
chango has also been mado by the General
Assembly in tlio reports that tho State lieas
iircr is compelled to mako to tno Auditor
General. Tho act of 13th April, 1870, re
quired that his report to yourself should in-
elm o tho amount in no sinking num. ccc
tiou eight of act of Utli -May, 1874, directed
that his statement of account to yourself
should be "exelusivo of moneys appropria
ted to the sinking fund." This latter sec
tion repeats, except in that respect, tho lan
guage of tho act of 1870, and by tlio fullness

requires the Stato Treasurer to report to tho
Auditor General tlio amount of money 111
the sinking fund and tlio method of Its in

Speci lii's of (lovcrnor Allen nnd (I. II.
Gai.upomm, Ohio, July 21. Tho first
meeting of tlio campaign was held hero to-
lay. A number of speakers wcro present.
Governor Allen said:
Tlio Ik-publican party ts responsible for
tho currency now in circulation. As It has
been issued by that parly It dmin not now be
come Republicans to call It "rag money" or
to call lor contraction. They tiro clamoring
now for speelo payments J but a plccoof gold
or n plccu of metal docs not bceoino money
until tho public authority lias stamped It as
money nud dcclnred it to bo money. So tho
government of tho United Stales, being a
rovernmeiit ol good standing and sound ere
llt, might just as well stamp a plcco of pn
icr for money, nnd said paper Is then, to all
Intents and purposes, cntiivalcnt to a silver
If specie payments aro a cood tiling, tho
Republicans arc responsible for their post
ponement. They put them oil, hecausothey
knew a presidential election would havo to
occur before four years, and they knew if
tltey undertook to lorco spccio payments bo
foro that election, fhoy would bo utterly ru
ined with tho American people. They
knew that an attempt to force that act would
spread bankruptcy and ruin throughout the
land, l Hero is a great ileal ol money locked
up, and not borrowed and put into use, for
men havo the threat of tho specie payment
act right beforo them, and will not borrow
money worth only 80 cents on tho dollar,
with tlio prospect of having to repay it in a
year or two at tho rate of 100 cents on the
lollar. That would have tho effect to break
down every business man who borrows mon
ey. Tlio resumption of specie payments by
a retrospective act that would embrace all
existing contracts would bo an outrnge, an
infamy, and an absoluto impossibility short
of a revolution.
Mr. Pendleton discussed tho platform con-
orally: upon tho financial plank ho said it
had been misrepresented. It called for a
currency equal to tho wants of trade, and
that ho claimed, was n fitting measure for
tho voliimo of currency. Every issue of gov
ernment paper, whether legal tender or not,;
every restricted banking system, has been
an effort to mako and keep a currency equal,
according to the judgment of tho govern
ment, to the wants of the trade. So with
every free banking system. Tlio Democrats
do not favor a depreciated currency. Ho
thought ho interpreted tiio opinion "of tho
party and tho platform when ho declared
they wero in favor of coin as tho basis of
currency; that a paper currency should bo
1'onvcrtiblo into coin at par; that tho paity
desire a return to spccio payments as speedi
ly as tho interests of labor and business will
permit; that wo would bo glad to return im
mediately ll honor and good laith and jus
tice would permit and it wero possible.
Tlio Democratic party is not now, and nev
er has been, in favor ol repudiation in any
lorm. Wo do believe it our highest duty to
fulfill all our country's obligations accord
ing to tho spirit and letter of our promise.
Wo are not now and never have been in fa
vor of a volume ot currency, changing, fluc
tuating according to tho whims of parties or
the intcrevts of bankers or tho demands of
reckless speculators; but sullicient for tho
easy, active, economical and profitable inter
change of commodities and as fixed and sta
ble as tho nature of tho caso will allow, and
so long as we must have a government pa
per currency wo prefer greenbacks, which
are sound and cheap and good, to tho na
tional bank notes, which at tho outset cost
the people six per cent and aro at last only
redeemable in greenbacks, jiq conlessed
there were defects and dangers in this coin
basis system ; that the superstructure of pa
per was larger than tho foundation of coin
nnd that as the superstructure grows higher
it grows wider and larger, lint ho would
not discuss to-day tlio merits of various kinds
of currency. The present necessities de
mand relief that should bo promptly furnish
ed. Ho repeated that he was a hard money
man, that a return to spccio payments should
bo kept steadily in view in legislation and
action, and that wise statesmanship will
seek the means of reconciling such return
wan tlio true interests ol labor ami business
and j ustico to the debtor. Resumption can
not bo forced. It must bo tho proper out
growth of surrounding healthy conditions or
it will be neither beneficial nor permanent.
When in Congress ho voted against tho le
gal tender act, believing the law unconstitu
tional and the policy unwise. As tlio poli
cy had bceoino interwoven with our system
of finance and trade ho would seek all the
good ho could find in it. Ho would not
abandon specie payments, hut he would not
rush ruthlessly back to specie payments over
tho prostration of all business and tho ruin
of the debtor.
Tho Democrats established the sub-treasury
system, and tlio government, in lSlil,
paid nothing but gold and silver. A Repub
lican congress passed the bond act, tho legal
tender act, and the national bank act; gold
and silver ceased to circulate, and in 1S05
tho various issues of paper money had reach
ed an enormous sum. Then commenced tho
Republican system of finance contract tlio
currency, and, if necessary to this end, in
crcaso tho interest paying debt and con
traction has been steadily going on. With
the decrcaso in tho currency there has been
a decline in tho prosperity and happiness of
the country, until now wo aro confronted
witli a condition of allairs which all feel too
keenly to make description necessary.
To-day tliero is more property for sale on
execution by the sheriffs of Ohio Hum over
before. Gold and paper stand to-day at a
dillereuco of fourteen per cent ; a year ago
tlio difference was ten per cent. Republi
cans claim contraction as a remedy for these
tilings. Congress has passed a law declar
ing that resumption shall take place in Jan
uary, 1870, and tip) treasury is preparing
for this by buying gold and silver, Every
dollar of gold purchased with bonds for tho
redemption of greenbacks adds to the annu
al interest. It is tho old story of funding a
debt which pays no interest. Tlio Demo
cratic party points to a middle path as tho
way to safety. Abandon this policy of con
traction, stop tinkering with tlio currency,
stoi) this effort at forcing resumption, givo
stahilhy for a time, givo business a moment
to revive, promote industry and production,
stimulato enterprise by the prospect of gain ;
labor more and spend less. Tho great want
of tlio country is an entire freedom for labor.
a removal of every obstacle, tho presence of
every aid.
Now that nothing more i-i to bo accomplish
ed by soliciting the aid of tlio prohibitionists
tlio republican journals havo adopted asud-
den conservatism ot sentiment as to tho en
forcement of sumptuary laws which is in sin
gular contrast with their tone beforo tlio tem-
peranco Stato Ticket was nominated. Whilo
the prohibitionists were willing to voto tlio
republican ticket, on the hazardous chnnco of
republican good faith in forwarding their
views, temperance legislation was considered
practicable, but now they will havo nono
of it. Tho Lancaster Examiner holds forth
in this extraordinary stylo toward its lato nl
Tlio personal right to drink or not to drink
and what? has never been separated, by
even tho shrewdest economists, moralists or
statesmen, from tho identical right locator

aration bo made, until attack" upon tno per
sonal rlidit to drink can ho mado without
impairment of other personal rights, and
without doing vlolenco to ourentiro personal

that prohibition can bceoino tho basin of n

Tho fornildahlo character of tho prohibi
tion movement this year hius proved an cyo

the Stale paid $45,531.73.
Tlicso comparative expenditures were pub

State with tlio fact that notwithstanding tho
increased number of tlio members of the
lower branch of tho Legislature, thcro had
been a decrease in running expenses of $40,

administration in this State $150,000 was

the members, clerks and officers, and the

newspapers and lights." In 1S73 Republi
can rapacity had run thotst of legislation
up to $389,820.23, and in 1874 it leached
$435,092.S!! Tlio sum that in 1830 was suf

In Texas, tlio Legislature at its last session
passed a license law forall trades or occupations
which makes it a penal ofieiico for any one to pur
sue any occupation, calling or profession, will

raise a revenue. Gamblers, lottery agents, pro

to covertly carry on their real ones.
