though a Republican rapcr, is not without
honesty ; as will bo seen from tho annexed
article, concerning the confirmation ot Kicn
ard H. Dana Jr, nominated by tho Presl'
dent as Minister to England.
Mr. Dana's appointment is endorsed by
every reputable and decent man in Mass
achusetts. Both senators from that state,
and tho delegation in tho house, irrespec
tive of party, are urging tho confirmation;
a memorial has been signed by tho presiding
offlcersof both branches of tho Massachusetts
legislature, and nearly all the members,
irrespective of party requesting the senate
to confirm; President Woolsey, of New
Ha ven, has written a letter to Senator Dawes
in favor of Mr. Dana, and says tho latter
-is not guilty of literary piracy; the similari
ty in his notes and writings to othersi is
not sufficient to warrant unfavorable action
by tho senate; and it is further stated that
letters aro pouring into Washington from
all sides from distinguished persons through
out tho country to senators and members.
This is the state of affairs, in tho midst of
which tho senate committee says the nomi
nation is one not fit to be made. It has
now come to be a question between all the
honest people of the country and Bin But
ler! Can the senate of the United States
hesitate a moment under such circumstan
ces? It may bo well to receive with care the
testimony of some of tho witnesses before
the investigating committees at Washington.
The evidence given by lobbyists, brokers
nnd others of that kind should be rigidly
scrutinized and not finally accepted as con
clusive without some corroborating testimony.
People who follow pursuits of doubtful purity
cannot bo regarded without suspicion, and
they are none too good to take advantage
of the opportunity afforded to blacken the
reputation of honorablo men. Those who
would defraud either the government or
their clients would not probably stop at
perjury if there was anything to gain by so
doing. We are led to these remarks by tho
charco made by one Lilly, a broker of
Washington, who has for some timo carried
on the business of selling cadetshlps, that
he gave Gen. A. II. Coffroth of this State

It is very common with Republican pa
pers to blamo the Democratic party for
having no financial policy and to attribute
to that cause the continued business do
pression of the country. Of course this is
the .sheerest nonsense; tho Democratic party
are not responsible for tho state of affairs
which exists.; that is the result of Republi
can financial tinkering. But in what respect
is the Republican party better off ? Is there
no difference of opinion in that organization
as to the proper financial course? Thoro is
as much dissension among them as among
Democrats. The fact is that tho money
question is not a political but a personal
one, and is not restrained by political views,
as a general tiling.

Impossible for him to llvoon his salary. But
why should Sherman, or any other man in
Washington, get up costly entertainments
which ho cannot afford, to pcoplo whom he
does not desire in his house? His official
position in tho army docs not rcquiro him
to entertain members of Congress, or Cabi
net ministers, or members of the diplomatic
corps, or anybody else. It would be better
fur him, instead of making a display of ex
travagance, as nn army officer, to set nn ex
ample of Spartan simplicity. Marshal Von
Moltke, tho great soldier at tho head of the
German army, lives in a very plain style,
nnd would never think of getting Tip such
banquets, balls, or revels as are common in
Washington. Tho fact is that a great many
people at tho capital havo been running
crazy over mis business oi cnieriainmcni
and fashionable display. They try to outdo
each other in extravaganco and flashness.
They must get money somehow to keep up
their rivalries; and as salaries could not
very well be fixed at a figure high enough
to meet all demands, somo of them resort to
crooked ways of raising it. Grant is largely
responsible for this stato of things through
his mercenary devotion to the worship of
ihoddy and wealth. If Gen. Sherman should
now take his headquarters hack to Wash -
ngton, ho can do credit to himself, as a
man and a soldier, by ceasing to encourage
or patronize tho ostentation of pretenders,
and by refrainiug from entertainments which
he cannot nftord, with his large salary. iV.
Washington county, Pennsylvania,
newspaper, states that n new construction
has been given to tho stato usury laws, by
the president judgo of that county. The
matter is stated as follows : "In the Jona
than West usury cases before our county
courts, his honor, Judge Acheson, last week
decided that where tho payment vvo3 uot
oluntnry that is, mado by constraint of
f execution the debtor can protect him
self by application to tlio court to stay the
execution, and deduct excess of interest
But if ho fails to do this, and pays the
monev, no cannot recover. . mis on me
road ground that there must be a stopping
point to litigation somewhere Tho motion
to obtain judgment for excess of interest
was therefore overruled." It would be in
teresting to havo a moro exhaustive report
of tho process of reasoning and tho grouuds
of law by which the learned judge arrives
nt the conclusion stated above, that under
the state law a voluntary payment of usurious
nterest precludes action for recovery. If
this is so, it is of great Importance that
bankers and business men should know it.
It would also bo an interesting subject of
inquiry whether tno "uroau ground on
winch tins decision is reached, would not
apply equally in arresting tho operation of
tho usury provisions of tho national bank
ing act. Gazetted- Bulletin,

Tlio Belknap articles of impeachment nre
uot yet prepared, nor have the managers of
tho Houso yet been elected, both will bo
done this week and it is presumable the trial
will commence next week. Sufficient evi
dence has been secured to render his con
viction certain, though as yet it is uncertain
whether tho Sccato will.try tho case upon its
merits, as Belknap's attorneys will claim that
his resignation deprives tlio Senato of the
right to try. TI1I3 was evidently Grant's
idea when ho so hastily accepted tho resig
nation of his corrupt Secretary. It has been
proven before the committee on War expen
ditures that Orvillo Grant sold several Post-
tradershlps and tho disgusting spectaclo is
exhibited, of tho President of the United
States allowing his brother to peddlo out tho
Secretary Bristow even, tlio man whom

ng,has been smirched inamulo transaction,

tations, but Secretary Belknnp directed that
this plea should not bo made, subsequently
the right to appeal was waived and Bristow
inving resigned became nn attorney for tho
ilainlifi". All of which taken together does
not look well.
The most disgraceful of all Belknap's
transactions yet brought to light is tho steal
mado in putting head-stones to the graves of
tho dead soldiers. Even in this work the
government was robbed, of Bcvcral hundred
thousand dollars and it has been proven that
the favored contractor had been assured that
he would not bo required to nbldo by the
specifications. How much ho paid for this
assurance and who recciyed tho money lias
not yet been discovered.
The House will hereafter meet three nights
of each week to discuss the appropriation
bills. A determined effort is being mado by
the Republican members of tho Houso to
defeat tho economies proposed by the com
mittee. And the Republicans of the Senate
have declared they will not agree to the bills
as reported. Their committco has taken the
deplomatic and consular bill passed by tho
Houso and restored all tho officers cut off by
the House bill, and havo placed the salaries
at the old figures. Tho indications are that
thero will be a protracted struggle on these
bills, that may carry the session well over
nto the summer. Jay Gould and his party
having discovered that they were beaten and
that the Texas aud Pacific bill would certain
ly pass, quietly smuggled a new bill into
the Senate committee on Railroads by which
they proposed to take tho lands granted to
the Texas and Pncific nnd build a road which
would be under tho control of tho Texas
central and have its only terminus Galves
ton. Monday was set for the consideration
of this bill in the committee,and Huntington,
Gould's Man Friday, came over from New
York witli a strong lobby to work it up.
There are whispers that Senator West of
Louisana, who has been a strong friend of
tho Texas and Pacific favors this new pro
ject. It is directly against tho interests 01
tho State ho represents and recalls the fact
that when the question of tho maimer of
opening the mouth of tho Mississippi river
was under discussion, West was strongly in
favor of tho Fort St. Philip canal, until a
certain timo when he suddenly becamo an
advocate of tho Jetty Plan. Huntington
told a member of Congress that he would
spend a million dollars to defeat the Texas
and Pncific bill. Ho may havo been using
convincing arguments with West.
The Supremo Court has just rendered two
most important decisions on the constitution

count tho vote of a colored man named Win
Garner. After an cxha ustlvc review of tho
enso tho court, nil tho judges concurring ex
cept Mr. Jitbtico Hunt, decided the law was
unconstitutional and that Congress had not
provided "approprato legislation on tlio sub-
ject. Tho other enso was from Louisiana
where Win. J. Cruikshank, Wm. D, Irviu
and John P, Hadnot wcro indicted under
tho Ku Klux act for "banding and couspir-
Ing together to intimidate certain citizens of
African descent and thereby to prevent them
from voting. Without deciding upon tho
constitutionality of tlio law, the prisoners
were discharged becauso of tho vaguery of

Quito a stir was occasioned last night
amongst the friends of tho Centennial by
tho Intelligence transmitted from tho Senate,
that the bill appropriating $10,000 to erect
a Stato C.'iiteuiiial building had been de
feated in that body. Tho bill was called up
prematurely by Senator Anderson of Craw
ford and considerably moro opposition to It
than was expected being developed It fell,
to tho chagrin of its friends and wo might
add somewhat to tho astonishment of its
enemies who scarcely expected such n re
sult, their object being not to day tlio un
patriotic part of opposing tho hill in tola, but
to modify Its provisions as to the amount to bo
appropriated and the manner of expendi
ture. This morning in 11 full senato tho vote
negativing the bill was reconsidered and it
passed third reading with an amendment at
tached providing that a joint committee of
tho two houses of tho Legislature should act
with tho State board of Centennial comrnis
sioncis in tho expenditure of the amount
appropriated by tho bill. Tho House today
concurred lu this amendment, and tho bill
has become a law unless tho Gubernatorial
signature, is withheld, which action, it is not
likely an aspirant for Presidential honors in
the centennial year will beguilty of. Another

it is that the session is so prolonged. This is
a question which tlio "gabblers" might with
greatest propriety nuswer but lo, they are
the most anxious inquirers as to the cause of
tho prolonged session. Action upon tho
general appropriation is generally supposed
to bo indicative of the approach of the close,
and the final passage of that bill is a ture
forerunner of final adjournment. As a ray
of hope to your readers that the present ses
sion will close sometime before tho summer's
over I will mention the fact that tho gener
al appropriation bill was called up in the
Houso to-day, but alas, after the reading of
its first section, it was laid over to be con
sidered at a future date.
A bill introduced somo time ago in the
Houso at tlie instance of the medical frater
nity of the state, after surviving many stur
dy blows, to-day succumbed to the pressure
of opposition and has gone to find a resting
place with many another ill-fated compaii
iotl. This bill had it becomo a law would
havo allowed tho surgical fraternity to take
possession of the bodies of deceased con
victs and others, when unclaimed, and chop
tho same up, in the interests of science.
Delegates to the Republican Convention
nro arriving from every direction to-night,in
tho midst of a terrific rain-storm. As your
readers will be fully cognizant of all the
work of to-morrow's convention, beforo this
commuuication.is placed before them, I will
abstaiii from prognostications or comments.
A London letter, written bince Schenck
took his hasty and unceremonious depart
ure, speaks of that event as "a shameful
flight out of England and a gross discourtesy
to the Queen." It was then believed in
I.on don that Schenck mado his escape under
false pretenses, which was true enough though
tho real facts aro worse than tho English
seem to.have suspected. The writer of the let
ter referred to speak sof a prevalent suspicion
that Schenek's resignation had already been
accepted when ho quitted tho country under
pretense that ho was only to be absent tem
porarily on leave. They aro ready enough
to believe anything bad of Schenck over
there, out it has not occurred to them, evi
dently, that tho President of tho great
American Republic could mako himself.a
partner in Schenek's disgraco by granting
him a leave of absence alter demanding his
resignation, and then delaying to accept tho
latter until the fleeing minister could escape
a waiting constable and get beyond tho jur
isdiction of British couits. Tho correspond
ent seems to think it inconceivable that,
knowing long before the resignation to be
on its way, tlio President had not accepted
It by Saturday, March 4, when Schenck
Bailed, nor even by tho next afternoon, when
tho Abyssinia,with tho fugitive from British
justice on board, lay two hours at Queens-
town. Ho cannot believo that tho accept
ance was delayed till Monday morning when
a successor was nominated to the Senate.
Yet Grant was equal to that very piece of
strategy, notwithstanding tho fact that when
ho asked Schenck to resign ho intimated his
intention to appoint n successor without
waiting to receive nnd accept tho rcsigna
tiou, telling Schenck to word the latter so as
to take effect when his successor entered
upon tho duties of tho post. If tho English
were bcandalized over Schenek's precipitate
flight, what will they say when they learn
from tho correspondence sent to the Houso
by Fish that tho President facilitated that
