them the world is flat and 1/stands still.
When he got through with his sermon
he took a vote, and all who believed
that he was right were told to hold up
their hands, and all tne hands of his
sable hearers went up, and he proved
his flat ideas unanimously. Jasper

The ffrrald says: Relations between
England and Russia are so strained at
the present moment as to be somewhat
more than critical. They are at the ex
treme point of tension consistent with
the preservation of peace, and in the ex
aggerated susceptibilities of the moment
a rupture may result any day apparent
ly as a consequence of events that at
other times would be regarded as trivial
For two years now these government*
have played at cross purposes with one
another, and England has certainly no
occasion to congratulate herself on the
results Her diplomacy through all
the difficult and delicate negotiation*
that have followed one another so close
ly, has been always at fault. From the
rejection of the Berlin memorandum in
May, 1876, down to the sending of the
fleet into the Sea of Marmora, every act
was a blunder Eng-
land's preparation seems to indicate a
decision to fight, and it it apparently in
terpreted that way in Russia; for the de
mand that her fleet shall be withdrawn
from the Sea of Marmora is only pre
sented now as a ground for Russian ac
tion. England will refuse to withdraw,
and thereupon the Russians will occupy
Constantinople. If the English occupy
the other aide of the strait, with the in
tention to ultimately create there a new
Gibraltar, they will find that a game at
which two can play, and that Russia s
not Spain.
Secretary Sherman is fast becoming
notorious Jjr being on all sides of every
thing. Some years ago be was for paper
money to pay the bonds, and this winter
the opposite and opposed to the silver
bill. Since the passage of the latter he
has become ailverish again, and pre
dicts it wiil prove all right.
The Cincinnati Enquirer's special in
giving the views of various Senators, of
the hard monev type, says :
"There's nothing extraordinary in it,"

was a question that Sherman has not
been upon all sides of."

It was a long time ago not within the
recollection of any reader of the Repor
ter—that wearing hair in top kneta was
rnn into extremes and excited as much
ridicule as hoop-skirts, waterfalls,stand
up-collars and cheap jewelry did in our
day. A minister ol the gospel thought
the top-knot fashion iireligious, and an
nounced that he would preach against it
and from a text direct to the point. He
announced as his text the words, "Top
knot come down," which was the lattci
clause of the verse in the New Testament
which reads, "And let hiin that is on the
house fop not come rf< ti. And with this
as his basis he went for the eaer-.egiou*
top-knots like a savage for a scalp. Rut
the top-knot that needs to Re scalped
now is that of high salaries. Nearly all
the other little top-knots, such as age*.
f'Hnl, Ac., have ootuo down, but there is
one so hardened to the sca.p of our pub
lic servants that it seems to be proof
against all clamor. In fact while nearly
all things else are coining down the top
knot of high salaries seems to he getting
bigger in defiance of the public will. 1 hi

when general ami state government -

t .xe, business pri'-trated, the very fir.
piace to practice economy would he to
cut down high salaries and abolish su
purfluous offices. Instead of this we find
high salaries at the top still, and danger
of them getting even higher, let the
cry go ont from every tax-payer, "lop

Washington, March 20.— The attacks
which have been made on the Adminis
tration by Senators Blaine, Sargen- and
Chaffee, on account of the policy which
aas been pursued by the Secretary of the
Interior towards the tinl>er depredators
•n the public lands, promise to hike the
form of a more general warfare on the
Administration at an early day. The
anti-Administration Republican Sena
tors have no faith whatever 111 the half
professions which have lately roadbed
ihem from the Kxecutive Mansion that
the President is now more than anxious
to continue on good terms with the Re
publican .Senators and members. Ap
pointments and removals of officials,
they sav. continue to be made in their
respective States without consultation
with them, and in cases of radical
hanges protests even go unheeded. Mr.
Foster. ofOhio, who has been credited
as the President's own representative on
ibe floor of the House, has abandoned
ny intention of making a defense of
the first year of the Administration, lie
finds but little to approve and much to
•ondemn.and evidently feels that what
oieed of praise might be said had better
remain unsaid. In the Senate Mr.
Howe, however, has paved the way for
an onslaught on the Administration. He
offered a resolution this morning calling
on the President for information as to
whether Whitaker, the judge who tried
Anderson, of the Louisiana Returning
Board, was a defaulter to the Covern
ment or not, and if so. why he had
never been prosecuted. Ihe NN isconstn
Senator said he sbopld call up ibis resn
ution next week and take the opportu
nity to reply to the charge made against
mm at home that he had beyi lukewarm
10 his support of the Administration,
and to show what excuse he had for his
conduct. Mr. Conkling has prepared a
speech assailing the President and will
deliver it on Howe's resolution. Other
Senators also promise to define their
fiosition. In the mean time several of
the nominations which have lately been
submitted to the Senate will be rejected
notably those of Reynolds for First
~r and Smith for paymaster in the
In an interview of Secretary Sherman
with the senate committee ol Uuau- e on
iVednesday he expressed Uiecouvictnui
hat the resumption act should not be
repealed, believing that the country
■ould resume on the first day of Janua
ry next. The statement ol the condi
lon of the treasury shows that the total
amouiit of gold com and gold bullion on
band is 1125.088,755. After deducting
all liabilities the total amount of gold
and silver coin and bullion available lor
redemption is $i I,< 75,860. lhe volume
of I'nited States notes has oeen reduced
to $348,618,024 against $382,000,000 at the
time of the passage of the resumption
act The secretary estimates that there
are now $320,000,000 of legal tenders in
circulation, deducting those that had
been lost or destroyed. This amount
with the national bank notes makes the
total paper money circulation $M3,000,-
000. To repeat tlie general result of the
preparations for resumption, the premi
um on gold has been practically abolish
e<l. Tbe amount of legal tenders and
national bank notes baa been reduced.
The fractional currency lias been paid
off, and tbe balance of trade baa been
favorable to this country to tbe amount
$160,000,000 a year, bringing back gold
and silver and bonds.
As to the silver bill tbe secretary
thinks it has bad some adverse and
some favorable effects on tbe question
of resumption. It has stopped the re
funding of the bonds and tbe accumula
tion of coin in tbe treasury. On the
Other hand, tbe silver bill has satisfied a
strong public demand for bimetallic
money. The secretary thinks that by
the passage of tbe silver bill resumption
can be maintained more easily upon a
double standard than uponasingle stan
dard. The bonds that have been return
ed from Europe have been readily ub
sorbed. Recent returns in New \ork
show the amount of bonds absorbed in
this country is at least a million and a
quarter a day. This shows the confi
dence of the people in the securities of
the country and their absorption will at
tend to check the scare in Europe, ibe
secretary would not accumulate more
than $5,000,000 a month of both metals,
and all sales beyond that should be an
pliod for refunding sir per cent, bonds.
He would be willing to begin resump
tion with |i£o 000,000 of coin on hand
and let tbe banks look out for
3fot long ago a man and his wife wei\l
to Kaasas to settle. To enable them to
pre-empt to quarter sections of land they
were divorced; each pre-empted a claim
1 and as soon as their claims were made
[good they were remarried, thus obtain
ing 320 acres of land.

It is reported, and we doubt not cor

was a prominent agent in the fraud
which made Haves President. His guilt
has been fully established be lore a judi
cial tribunal, and at the -ante time, on*
purely technical ground, he has been set
at liberty by an appellate court, and
thus be is in no immediate danger of the
penitentiary. Mr. Hayes could not
make a more fitting appointment. An

Anderson be in office also ?
