Tho Republican party and its head created
nnd carried through tho Credit Mobillier,and
neither the Vico President nor Congressmen
who through it robbed tlio nation, havo over
been brought tojustice.
The crimes and admitted frauds in the
I'recdmans' Heurcau were perpetrated with
Tho Moiety system, by which Xcw York
city custom House officials received $1,100,'
000, and Informer Jayno $910,000 was
Rciublicii measure and a proved fraud.
The tiatiborn contracts, by which Grant's
three particular friends made in three years
$1,500,000, was a Republican measure, and
whilst the fads have been proven, Justice
slumbers at Grant's dictation.
Tho long list of defaulters in every De
partment in numbers and amounts stolen is
ollici.iMy shown to be double that from 1789,
when our Government was inaugurated, to
tho accession to power of tho Republican
patty in 1S01.
The enormous frauds by the Whisky Ring
were committed by Republican officials and
Grant's bosom friends, and when an active
Secretary of the Treasury began to unearth
them, and investigation was reaching the
V hite House, the faithful prosecuting at
torney was dismissed, because ho knew loo
much, and a more subservient officer placed
in his stead.
The "admiration of the world" has been
challenged. Let tho world consider tho
above facts, which are but a tithe of thoso
wo could mention
THE SCHOOL QUESTION.
While Grant is endeavoring to foment
sectarian bitterness, aud is aided by a few
addle-headed ministers, tho body of the
Christian Church resent tho proposed at
tempt of tho Government to meddle with re
ligious matters. Tho Pacific Churchman
speaks as follows:
Religious training for the young is an ad
mitted necessity by all who arc believers in
religion of any form, whether Protestants,
Romanists Israelites, or Mohammedans,
IIjiv euch religious training can bo best
given without violating tho conscientious
scruples and religious liberty of any, is tlio
important problem to solve. That no secta
rian teaching of any kind can consistently
with our republican institutions, bo taught in
our public schools, is admitted by the most
liberal-minded persons. In justice to the
rights of a largo number of those whose
children atteud our schools, nnd who contri
bute to their support, no particular religious
training should bo enforced in tho system of
public education. Yet as an exercise of the
inherent right of self-protection which
society possesses to guard itself from crime,
there should bo some means provided for the
religious teaching of the young.
Moral trainiug, such as can be given un
der our public school system, should bo sup
plemented by religious training in the home
aud by the Citurch. It is within the power
of tho pareuts of the land, with few ex
ceptions, to say for themselves whether the
young minds entrused to their care, shall be
taught religions principles, or whether this
grcai . .n shall Lew illihcUl from them. Re
ligion need not depend for an instant upon
tho publicschool foritsperpetuation. If we
Insist upon a broad, liberal standard of
inora'ity, comprehensive enough to embrace
the whole duty of the citizen to society and
tho State, and full enough to exclude the
bitterness of theological wrangling, our
duty as Churchmen in tho premises should
ha done. II there is not enough vitality in
tho Christian Church to preserve it intact
without tlio organized aid of tho State
through its tchools and otherwise, nothing
of the kind will save it from dying out. Hut
the great truths of tho Church do not de
pend upon such artificial aids for their sup
port. It is in the family that tho church
mu'it cither receivo its best support or its
Tho education given by eur public schools
of itself, will injure tho religious principles
of no child who has been taught be
side a weak tissue of sophisms under the
name of religion. "Truth is mighty and
will prevail," and if the teachings of relig
ion are true, there need ho no danger In ex
posing them to the crucial action of nn iu
tel igent, educated mind. Tho highest at
tainublo human knowledge, is compatible
with tho strongest and most beautiful
Tlio report of the Agricultural Bureau for
ovcmbcrand December states that the corn
crop Is ono of the largest ever grown in this
country, probably equalling the crops of
1870 nnd 1672 ; that tho potato is extraordi
nary, both iu product and quality, the total
yhJ beiug fully one-fourth larger than last
year; that tho cotton crop will pass tho lim
it of 4,000,000 bales ; and that there is an
incrcaso of 75 per cent, in the yield of tobacco
over that of last year.
Tho "Mysterious Pjlgrims,"lt Is told have
dissolved their organization. They will re
appear again in a new guise. Scoundrels
haven natural attraction towards each other,
and will combine in tho future as they have
m the past. "What's Iu u name? That
which wo call u tose by any other name
would iniell as sweet."
Uroadhead has succeeded Heuderson iu
tho prosecution of the St. Louis whiskey
ring. He will bo careful to say nothing that
may be construed by Grant and his cabinet

find it safo not to push tho prosecution

offered by Mr. Springer, a Dcmocr t, is n
severe blow to the scheme !
V.VWrfi.That In tho opinion of tltuhow

and other presidents of tho United States in
retiring from tho presidential olll o alter
their second term, has becomo, by u .lvcml
concurrence, a part of our republican system
of government, nnd that nuy d'parturo
from this time-honored custom would Do
unwise, unpatriotic, and fraught with peril
to our free Institutions.
Under operation of tlioprcvious question
this resolution was niopted by a vot of twit
hundred and thirty-two to seventeen.
Among tho negative volo we find tlio name
of ono Democrat' nnd one "Intlopjmien"''

This has placed tho Republican party In
Congress squarely against tho projec'.. Not

A Dank Teller Taught a Lesson.
A singular case was decided last week in
the circuit court for Washington county, Md.
It was given as evidence on tho trial that in
1871 Mrs. Susan Weckler asked the First
National bank of Hagerstown to cash a draft
on New York for 1,047. The teller ot the
bank, John D. Newcomer, being told by her
that she wished to Invest $1,000 in Wash
ington county bonds, advised her that a bet
ter Invetraent could bo made in Northern
Pacific bonds, which bonds have since depre
ciated to about fifteen cents on the dollar.
It was also stated as an inducement for such
investment that Dr. John F. Smith, Mrs.
Weckler's physician had invested ilO.000 in
the Northern Paeifio, and this assurance de
cided her. Robert O. Nymar,tho sou.in-law
of Mrs. Weckler, confirmed tho testimony,
lie being present at the conversation. Tha
action was brought against the teller of the
bank to recover tho amount invosted under
deceitful representation. The Jury gave a
verdict in Mrs. Weckler's favor. Tho defen
dant denied the allegations of deceit, acd
said that at that time the railroad bonds
were in good sale and catoemed an excellent
Investment. Dr, Smith testified that he had
never Invested In the Pacific railroad bonds,
nnd never told any body that he had any.
Mrs. Weckler first brought her action against
the bank, but the court decided that It could
not be maintained because it was not within
tho chartered powers of national banks to
deal in bonds, and that any one who dealt
with a national bank boyomt its powers did
so at his peril, and can havo no remedy
against tho bank. The defendant hs filwl a
motion for a new trial.
Danger of Coal Gas.
Persons who have Moves hi their bed roonui
or In rooms connected with their sleeping apart
ments cannot be too careful In arranging the fire
at night. At Shaniokln a widow and her two
daughters came near loalng their lives from mi
inhalation of coal They put some fresh
coal in the cook stove, and having paitly're
moved the lids from the stove and turned th
damper, they retired for the night, the doors of
tlio various rooms in the bouts MVing been left
open, Next morning the mother awoke feoUnin
very tick and weak, but managed to get out of
the home to call In aeveral neighbors. When
they arrived they found the youngest daughter,
aged ubout twelve years, alrnut UDcontcious,rnil
the oldest daughter, about eighteen years of age,
terribly tick. A doctor was iuiuwIUtely teut
for, and succeeded in saving the lives pf all, but
siys that it would have taken but a liulo wbtlf
longer until the youngest daughter wolud have
been dead. Whoa tht dtctor arrived alit had

The Ailjnarncit Session.
Tho session of tho Pennsylvania legisla
ture, says tho Patriot, which will mcotontho
first Tuesday In January next Is known to
the constitution as art ".vljourned annual
session." It will not bo a new legislature
becauso one-third of tho senators Is renewed,
but an adjourned nekton of tho legislative
which was chosen for two years in Novem
ber, 1871, and which will therefore remain
in existences until iu successor shall bo chos
en lu 1870. With tho oxccptlon of a mem
ber or two elected to fill vacancies, tho house
remilns tho s.vne, and tho renewal of one
third of tho members of tho senate docs not
afti tho Identity of that body. Analogies
of this kind nro rarely complete, but If ono
woro nccde I It Is found iu tho congress of
the United States. The officers of tho house
elected at tho opening ot tho present session
will hold their positions until the dissolution
of tho Forty-fourth congress on tho Fourth
of March, 1877. no matter how many nil-
journcil sessions may bo held In tho mean
time. Such legislation as may remain un
finished at tho closo of tho present session of
congress will go over to tho next session,
when It will bo considered. This is what is
proposed to bo dono with tho unfinished bus
iness of tho first session of tho present lcgls
At tho closo of tho last session of tho leg
Mature it was proposed by tho scnato that
all the unfinished legislation should fall witli
tho adjournment of tho session. The house
did not take this view of tho enso, but held
that, tho noxt being an adjourned session,
all legislation not finally disposed of would
remain in statu quo, and bo considered when
tho legislature should again meet, iu accord
ance with the provisions of tlio constitution.
This seems to bo the sensiblo and practical
view of tho question. In obedience to the
action ot tho houso n calendar has been pre
pared and printed by tlio clerk showing the
condition of tho unfinished legislation.
The houso calendar shows that when tho
first session of the present legislature adjourn
ed last spring about two hundred bills re
mained undisposed of in that branch. Up
wards of forty of these bills aro on third rend
ing. Jluch of this legislation is important
nnd the whole of it can soon bo disposed of
in one way or another. But if the work of
last session is to bo begun anew, and all the
bills, good, bad and jndifl'erent, thrown again
into the legislative hopper to he ground over
there will bo double toil and trouble. For
what good 7 Some of this legislation is of a
local and private character, and due notice
has been given according to law. If )t must
be started afresh the notices must also be re
newed to the great trouble and expense of all
It is intimated that the courts might decide
this legislation unconstitutional on the
ground that the renewal of one third of the
sena'c makes the next session of the legis
latnrc a new body. B,ut the constitution dis'
posed of the objection in describing the next
as an"adjqurned annual session." If any one
should be disposed, however, tq test tho oont
stitutionality of an act of assembly on this
question that would be attended witli much
loss trouble than tho renewal of all tho in
complete work of last session and the conse
quentprotraotlon qfnext session and the
delay of the public business. In tho passogo
of tho bills now standing on tho calouders o f
tho scnato and the bouse all tho requirements
of tho constitution will havo boon complied
with as fully as it this proposition should
prevail. They will havo received a constitu
tional majority of the'duly chosen representa
tives of tho people. But there is a number
of these bills that will not pass and ought not
to pass. If they are not despatched at once
they will bo started again on thoir weary
round. Some of tho bills on third reading
on the houso calendar have already passed
the senate and unless amended they will not
;ain coiuo qndcr the control of tlio latter
body. When any qf tho important house
bills of last session shall bo sent to the sen
ate it will not bo in the province of the sen
atetolnquireintotheirrcgularity. The sen
ate will baldly commit an act of parliament
ary discourtesy by refusing to consider them.
But should tho hereto dealing to roiumo the
unfinished legislation of last session on the
ground taken at tbendjournmcut,tho respon
sibility of embarrasslug tho public business
will not ret with the house. If two or three
unfinished measures of last session happen to
be in a condition that is not agreeable to par
ties interested in them, this is a consideration
which should not be permitted to obstruct
lagi&Ution of the whole state, The real or
imaginary Interest of Individuals must yield
to the right and interests of the public.
Eclectic Magazine. The January num
ber, beginning a new volume nnd a new
year, is a good specimen of the magazine, and
offem a favoraqlo opportunity for new sub
scribers to begin, It is embellished with two
fine steel-engravings, "The Flower Gather-
irf'wWQtorye Washington and Ms family,"
The first la a child-pleeo, very beautiful iu
design, very tender in sentiment, and admir
ably engraved. The second Is peculiarly
appropriate to tho centennial year, compris
ing portraits of Washington in his uniform,
as general of tho army, of Martha Washing
ton, of Wm. Lee, and of tho children, Geo-
Washington Parko Custis aud Eleanor Parke
Custla. We may add, that eaeh monthly
number of the KcUctic eontains at least one
steel-engraving, usually a portrait of some
man distinguished in letters, art, or politics.
Qf the literary attractions of the January
number, the most striking are) A synopsis
