Corporate lullitenco is doing its utmost to

Thomas A. Scott is an adept manipulator of
Legislatures and Congress, and knows no
such word as "fail." Despite) tho nearly
unanimous voto in Congress against subsi
dies, land grants, and government aid to
bankrupt railroad schemes, it looks as if
his powerful arguments would convert tlio-o
who so recently declared against tho scheme
Wo have already given these. Pacific roads

over 220,000,000 of acres of public land,
which in all conscience should bo enough.
If, however, thero i3 an overflowing
Treasury, let tho Government bojust before
it is generous. It should properly compen
sate tho soldiers of tho lato war by an equal
ization of bounties. This has been prom
ised them time and timo again, but no bill
for that purpose ever became a law. The
three years men boro tho brunt of tho war,
and yet received but S100 bounty, whereas
raw recruits towards tho close of tho rebel
lion were given from $1,000 to $1,500, and
most of them never emolled gunpowder.
Even tho pittance of $100 was denied thoso
who were discharged on account of sickness,
beforotho expiration of their terms of ser
vice, even if they had faithfully served two
years and eleven months.
Again, tho one year's men wcro solemnly
promised $100 bounty by tho Government,
but wcro discharged with but $33.00 and in
somo cases $00.00.
Bounty lands wero also promised tho sol
dier, but thepromise was a delusion, becauso
if was coupled with the proviso that tho sol
dier must resido upon tho tract. Had it
been given to him absolutely he could have
located Iiu warrant, and eventually used it,
It used to bo tho cry "millions for defenco

THE MIA OF UASCAMTY.
Years ago, under Democratic nuplecs,
tho robbery of tho Treasury by n Democrat
of ever so small nn amount, would have
been n text fur every Radical newspaper
mid orrtor in tlio land. Tlio rascality of
Tweed, although promptly punished by n
Democratic Administration, was mado n
national question, and with effect.
But our npponents nro Indifferent when
wo bring homo to them Land Grabs; Credit
Moutllicin, Crooked Whiskey frauds.and gen
eral rascality) as if a matter of course, and
tho Republican voter stands at tho polls
annually to perpetuate tho scoundrcllsm of
his leaders. As n samplo of tho general
demoralization, National, State, and corpo
rate wo give tho following synopsis of one
T. J. McLain, n private banker of War
ren, Ohio suspended yesterday. His liabil
ities aro $100,000, assets unknown.
Jordon, Clark Sim., tho Boston clothiers,
who wcro compelled to suspend recently, by
tho embezzlements of their book-keeper,
Satiford, met their creditors yesterday. They
stated their liabilities at $390,132, and their
assets nt$351,C2G; but their books havo peen
kept in such n manner that it is imposslblo
to get at tho exact condition of their nfiairs.
Jonathan Earle, Treasurer of tho Norfolk
and New Brunswick, Hosiery Company, nt
Now Brunswick. N. J., has been found
"short in his accounts" to tho amount of
$142,000. Ho has acknowledged the "ilcfici
encj,"and turned over property sulllclcnt
to cover tho amount. It is said that his son,
G. B. Earle, of new York, who kept the
Treasurer's bank accounts, was given blank
checks of tho Company to fill out as required
to meet the Company's liabilities as they
camo due, and that ho used them, and lost
tho money in Wall street speculations.
It now appears that tho robbery of tho
Northampton National Bank, at Northamp
ton, Mass., was accomplished, and that the
securities taken aggregate $720,000. The,
loss as usual, falls almost wholly upon
snecial depositors. A reward of $25,000 is
offered by tho bank olllccrs for the return of
tlio property anil tlio conviction oi tlio bur
glars. Tho robbery was committed by seven
unknown men who, it is said, "had been
hanging about the town for at least a month."

keys, they were balked by tho safe contain

itself. Three hours nfter tho family wero
bound and gagged, Mrs, Whittlesey succee
ded in freeing herselt and giving tho alarm
lrom a window. llio rest or tlio r.imily wcro
then liberated, and tho cashier, still bearing
tho handcuffs, went to tho bank. It is sup
posed tho robbers, or at least six of them,
left for Springfield on tho six o' clock morn
imr train. Of tho $730,000 taken, only
812,000 la lost by tho bank. About $500,
000 is in registered bonds and certificates of
stock, and, therefore, not negotiable.
llev. E. U. Winsloiv, tho lioston lorger,
has been traced to the steamship Rotterdam
winch sailed lrom icw lork on Pruiay last
for Rotterdam. It is stated that there is no
treaty of extradition with Holland. Noth
ing new in regard to winslow s lorgcrios
was developed yesterday at Boston.but their
amount was estimated as high as $000,000.
Tho report that ho sailed in tho Rotterdam
steamer is discredited at tho Hub, but it is
bclievcdthere that ho took very littlcjmonoy
with him, wherever lie went.
A plan to rob nn express car coining East
from Chicago, on AVedncsday night, was
frustrated, and tho robbers were captured.
Four men, formerly railroad employes, got
on tho train at AVauseon, Ohio, and as soon
as it was again under way, began to bore
out part of a panel in tho express car, when
they wero pounced upon by ofliccrs who
wero iu waiting on tho train. The robbers
aro now in jail at Toledo. Tlio safe in the
express car contained $275,000 in currency
and over $125,000 in bullion.
FOOD F0U THOUGHT.
AVo clip tho following from tho financial
columns of the Press of January 20th:
In London to-day it was reported that tho
directors of the Bank of England intended to
reduco tho rates of discount at their next
meeting on Thursday. It will thus bo either
4 or 4 per cent from that date. Tlio Times,
!.: i i '
m us uuuiiciai nruciu lo-uav says mo money
market remains inactive. Thobusiness con
sists chiefly of loans, which yield a better
profit and quicker returns than discounting
bills of exchange. Consequently, discount
is quoted in several quarters abovo tho ac
tual market rate, which is not abovo 3Vpor
cent, ior tnree months' bills, mo jjank
of England is doing no discount business at
all. Tho inclination of Continental ox-
change continues favorablo to England, in
consequence oi larger purchases or stock
nero ior tno account or Continental deal
Here, threo months bills with good secu
rity, cannot bo negotiated, except as a mat
ter of favor, for less than 10 per cent, or
three times the amount charged in England.
Our country is rich and should bo prosperous
and our rates of interest only provo tho
extravagance of our government, and tho
vicious legislation of tho party in power.
A Democratic IIouso of Representatives
seems bent on economy, and tho opposition,
of course ouject because the dignity of our
Government must be maintained, Supposo
wo take our Minister to England as au ex
ample. "A London letter to tho New York
Tribune throws light upon tho recent cable
dispatch to tho effect that writs had been
served upon Minister Sehenck, Albert Grant
and others connected with tho management
of tho EinnlaMino Company. At tho date
of tho letter Mr. Alexander MacDougall,
chairman of tlio company, was about to bring
ait action again't tho original directors of tho
concern, MacDougall makes tho specific
accusation that sehenck was bribed in the
sum of $50,000 by Trenor AV. Park. Thero
is much speculation as to whether tho great
Pokerist will stand his trial liko a man or
hide behind tho shield of his missiou.'
AVK THOUGHT SO.
Tho Insurance Bureau in. our Stato was a
favorite schemo with tho Republican party,
and especially with Mr. Foster, tho present
Superintendent. His foresight is shown by
tho fact that last year ho received in fees
$11,805,50 and a talary of $2500, making a
total of $14,805,00, or more than threo times
tho amount received per annum by Gov

No ono is surprised that Grant and Sher

Quiet, peace-loving peoplo who pay tho taxes

Bonio one, Shakespeare, 1 think, said,
''There's a divinity that shapes our end.."
With that lino running through niy.mind I
sat in the gallery nf tlio House, and took a
good view of the top and bottom ends of
somo of our Oongicssmcn. Tho bifurcated
lower ends of numbers of them wero visible
on tho seats when they were hoisted In that
peculiar pool lion which Is said to bo tho
American's Idea of comfort, and a lesson
could bo learned from tlieso feet. Somo of
them wcro broad, strong looking, conveying
tho idea that tho owner was a man of will,
who, when "ho put his fool down," meant
business. Others wero narrow mid small
suggesting weakness, physical and perhaps
mental, upon tho part of tho ownor, and
still others wero of such enormous proport
ions that they gavo ono the thought that
the owner must get fatigued by carrying
them round. But while tho feet or minor ends
wcro of few varieties, the caputs were almost
as diverso in shape, size, nnd appearance ns
thero wero members. Yon sound, well-shaped
head, with its full crop of hair cut close
and tinged by tlio passing hand nf time,
clear cut and well poised, shows power, will,
ability "'to do and dare,"and marks a man
that leads wherever ho may bo thrown.
Thero is another, of a different style, but
equally strong, Long from point to rear,
with a projecting forehead, depressed at the
sides, with the hair thin and disappearing.
It shows brain power, nervousness, skill, and
wo know as wo look, that onoof tho leaders
of tho body sits beforo us. Sco the small
pointed head, sloping from every way to the
center, and you wonder what that man's con
stituents sent him here for, and what ho can
do more than say "aye" or "no," ns his par
ty leaders dictate. A closo examination
shows that this class, or others indicating
llio samo characteristics, largely predomi
nate, and a few days watching of tho pro
ceedings proves that tho divinity "that
shapes our ends" makes no mistakes in the
shaping, for tho ones with tho good ends
(heads) lead and the others follow.
Bennett, lato prince- royal, but now king
of tho New York Herald, is going to be mar
ried. This is no falso rumor to bo denied
in time. Ho marries an American girl, born
in Washington city, and now resident in
Now York. She is tlio second daughter of
Dr. May, and captured tho erratic Bennett
at Now York last summer. Bennett will
advanco tlio season this year for his "May"
will como to him in Febiuary. Well, peace
to his ashes, is tho prayer of his bachelor
"Thero was mounting in haste of tho
Nctherby clan," and so thero is hero of all
tho clans. No young bride lias been snatch
ed from her destined spouso and borne away
by an ardent Lochinvar from out of the
west, but there aro many political movers
seeking a bride, and her name is "nomina
tion." Among tho democratic movers somo
anger has been excited by Mr. Speaker
Kerr's letter, expressing himself as favor
ing Governor Hendricks. This has been
most outspoken by the friends of that ardent
young .lover from New Y'ork Tilden. But
a great many others, who do uof'speak out
in meeting," like Tildin's friends, think the
Speaker should have held his peace, at least
for tho present. Hero tho followers of tho
grim Morton do not liko Senator Sherman's
letter, nominating Governor Hayes. They
.say it is nn effort to spiko Morton's guns.
But all tho friends of all the candidates are
mounted and riding for tho prize, while
sensible men like you and me look on and
Tho woman suffragists havo been hero in
full force, only somo familiar faces wero
wanting,Susan B. Anthony and Anna Dick
inson wero not witli tlicin. It cannot be
that they havo grown lukewarm, for they
aro of thoso "whom ago does not tire'nor
custom stale." Thoso dear ducks want tlio
privilege of voting accorded to tho women
of tho District. As it is ono not now given
t the men, wo all favor it here. Let Con
gress make them voters, by all means, and
give us tho experiment or a woman's gov
ernment on a littlo larger scale than the
homo circle. Ono thing is certain, there
could bo no better placo than this to make
tho experiment, as all tho governments by
men tried hero havo failed.
Investigations aro tho order of the day.
Everybody and everything is being investi
gated. AVliat will bo developed by tho
Smelling Committees is yet an unknown
quantity, but I have very littlo doubt that
they will discover, if they persevere, that
thero aro good oysters, a fair article of
whiskey, excellent tcrrapin,and fiuo import
ed wines, to be had at certain places in this
city. Some of tho investigators may find
a "big bonanza" in tho shape of a roll of
greenbacks, (checks aro not taken and
memorandum books allowed.)
It is mournful to view tho lobby. The
patriotic and high-muled men who eongre-
gate hero at every Session of Congress, eacli
one having a Senator and two or three
Representatives for sale, aro at a discount
liko others, their occupations gone ; for tlio
'men who havo schemes have generally dis
covered that they havo been purchasing
goods that could not bo delivered. It rends
one's heart, nnd causes great tears of pity to
flow from tlio eyes of sympathetic to seo the
blank looks that followed tho announce'
ment that Tom Scott would not havo a lobby
for tho Texas and Pacific bill. Tho vultures
had congregated, expecting fat pickings
from him, when, liko a thunder clap in a
cloudless sky, camo tho announcement that
thero would bo no lobby. It is to bo hoped
that this winter will glvo us tho last of tho
disreputablo "third house," particularly as
thero is a bill now beforo tlio Senate, to pro
vido a bar which shall issue licenses to per
