ROTTENNESS Of TflK ADMINISTRATION.
Wo complain of our presont rulers
tor lawless usurpation nt power.
1'owrr not delegated is always ahused.
In this, as in other cases, usurpation
bus been accompanied and followed
by corruption, l'muds without n inn
er, and almost without limit, have
been committed on the public. Men
of tho worst character for common
honesty aro permitted tn occupy the
hit-hest places. Of the money collect
ed from tho people, and not stolen
belore it reaches the I reaaury, a large
portion is squandered by Congress on
parly favorites, on corrupt rings, nnd
on baso combinations of publio plun
derers. Thocnormiiuscxtonl to which
this financial corruption has been cur
ried will become manifest to any one
who compares the expenditures of tho
govemmont during the six years which
receded and the six yours which lol-'
owed tho civil war. lioth were peri
ods of peace, and I hero can bo no ex
cuse for moro than a small increase
corresponding to the ratio in which
tho population has advanced, iiul

and interest on the publio debt, were

Here is shown the dillvrcnco between

But the party In power hits contrived
to rnnke the taxes doubly burdensome
by their mode of levying and collect
ing thorn. Ureal gangs of unneces
sary officers n re supported and ration
ed out of lliem, Tliey are in many
cases imposed, not with any view to
the supply of the publio treasury, hut
solely lo operate o bounties for the
benefit of individiiuls and privato cor
porations. Whilo tho month of labor
is thus robbed of the bread it earns,
thp fortunes of monopolists and ring
masters rs hi.leniislr swelled, and
their rapacity Inflamed for slill further
aggression upon tho rights of tho
industrious masses. The necessity of
revenue reform is admitted on all

AN INDEPENDENT JUDICIARY.
No people can be wholly enslaved
so long as ihey hare the protection of
an independent and upright, judiciary.
The Itadicul party, feeling this, have
tried by all means, fair and foul, to
make tho federal judiciary an instru
ment to aid them in their crusade
against tho law of the land. Tbe.V
have filled the inferior courts, especi
ally in (ho South, with their most
unscrupulous partisans. Again and
again they have constructed and re
constructed the Suprc in ('Court some
times by reducing, and sometimes by
increasing iho number of judges
always with tho vlow (o muko a ma
lothy which could bo relied, on tq
august tribunal sustained tho ancient
principles of liberty and justice, its
authority was denounced, disobeyed,
and contemned. Tliey have inter
poso. in a pending euso with legisla
tive decree tn tako away tho jurisdic
tion of tlio court, and prevent it from
protecting a citizen whose plainest
right thoy dosirod to invade. We sol
emnly trust that they huvo not vol
succeeded, nnd will nevor suceeed in
bending tho court of last resort to
thoir foul purposes.
RADICAL BK.C0NHTKUCTI0. -
Their so ciillod reconstruction laws
are a series of experiments for iho
oduction of the Southern Slates to
the lowest condition of political sla
very, hoping thereby to muko them
instruments for the enslavement of
every other section. To this ond Ihcy
have not only relused them a repre
sentation in Congress, but forced thorn
lo bo misrepresented by persons who
cimo there to get oppressive luws
etacled against them. They have
stoiidily struggled to make tho .State
g.vcriimenU the tools of thoir parti
sun tyranny. Wherever they have
fuly succeeded they have debauched
llu administration of justico, disre
garded the popular will, and produced
tlio most frightful disorders. Scala
wags, carpel baggers, and tho most
irnorant of the negro population wel
ter together in one muss of moral
ititrcfuction, scourging tho respecta
Ilo and pcuccful citizens with their
lishoncst exuctioiis. These outrages
,ro openly instilled, and their encour
agement declared to bo necessary for
the good ol tho Judical party. Iho
iforemost members of Congress havo
avowed their determination to leeris-
lut0 uPn t,iem wil1' referenco to the
chances it may give them of carrying
future elections. In other words, tho
worst, wrongs anu itto most snumeitll
violations of common justice are com-
mmcu in oruor mat a certain comoi-
nation of politicians already in power
may continue lo rule us for their pleas
ure and plunder us for their prolit.
INCOMPETEXCr OF GRANT.
Of General Grant we desire to speak
with the respect that is duo to tho
chief magistrato vf tho nation and a
soldier of great reputation. But it is
painfully manifest that ho is not fit
for his placo. Ilo has never made
tho slightest efforts to preserve, pro
tect, or defend the constitution. On
the contrary he has given to its ene
mies in Congress all the uid and com
fort bo could, and he has usstimed,
without scruple, powers which kings
aro careful not to exercise and which
no republican ruler can hold without
mortal ofl'enco lo popular liberiy.
Instead of guarding tho publio treas
ury ho has encouraged tlio corrupt
extravagance of Congress, and some
of tho worst jobs havo hud their origin
in Iho rings which immediately sur
round him. Before and about tho
titno of bia election his inconsistent
expressions showed that ho had no
convictions (perhaps no knowledge)
upon public all'uirs. He avowed open
ly in writing, over his own namo, that
ho bad no policy, that is to say no
opinions or senlimenls which would
control bis choico of measures. But
leading and ambitious men of tho Ho
publican parly proposed lo him a poli
cy which would servo their interests
at the expense of equal rights and they
accompanied their suggestions willi
oilers of enormous presents in money,
lands, houses and goods fur exceeding
in value the annual salary, which the
people agreed lo pay him for an im
partial and just administration of their
government. Ho accepted tho pros
cuts, adopted the policy and appointed
the donors to ollico.
It will surely be admitted that all
American citizens who believe these
fuels tn be true aro bound by the sa
cred obligations of patriotism, honor
and conscience to oppose this stalo of
things and by opposing end it if possi

LAURA FAIR'S DEATH SENTENCE.
A Muring Mrene in a Court Itoom.
Tho telegraph has already advised
that tho death. warrant ol' Laura H'air,
murderess of A. P. Critletnlnn, Ksq.,
in California, has beon signed by the
Governor, and is in the hands of the
Sheriff of Sun Francisco. In all judi
cial executions thnt have taken place
in California of Into yenis, the Sheriff
or his chief deputy has drawn the
fatal bolt. Tho law. provides for no
special executioner, but directs that
tho sheriff or ono of bis deputies shall
perform tho office. Tho present Slier
iff of Sun Francisco is a merchant in
good standing, and his chief deputy is
a gentleman who had been for many
yenrs a notary public Tho San
Francisco pnpers of tho 5lh instant
report tho scene in tho court room on
Iho occasion of passing tho deiith son
tonco. At tho conclusion of tho nr
gument by Mrs. Fuir's counsel on
motion in arrest of judgment nnd for
a now trial, Iho court remarked lo the
district attorney that reply was un
necessary, and proceeded to dispose of
tho points mado in support, of tho mo
tion, and in conclusion sa d :
The enso has been carefully tried.
Tho prisoner has had every advan
tage, in my opinion, that tho law could
give. Tho case, that should have
been tried inside of ten days, occupied
a month before a verdict was render
ed It is true. I am convinced that
tho jurors acted honestly und consci
entiously. It now only remains fur
me to pass
tho saddest duty of my life. ..
Mr. Campbell I renow, if your honor
ploaso, my motion fur judgment 'upon
Mr. Cook I wish to havo permis
sion on Monday to file my grounds of
exception, nunc pro tunc.
The Court Laura D. Fair: You
wore indicted by tho grand jury of the
city nnd county of San Fruncisco of
the crime of murder, for the unlawful
killing of Alexnrder P. Crittenden.
That indictment was sent to ihis court
for triul. You wero furnished with
an impartial jury. You were nbly de
fended by counsel. That jury pro
nnunceoj you guilty. Have you any
legal cause to show why Ihejudginenl
of the court should not bo pronounced !
A silence as of death reigned in tho
court room, broken only by the sub
bing of tho ladies who sat by Mrs
Fair within tho bar. Mrs Limo, tier
mother, wept bitterly. The prisoner,
who hail sat with her bend buried in
her mother's lap during tho first por
tion of tho court's remarks, had par
tially recovered her composure, and
now sat upright, with her eyes closed,
and her face pule and emotionless as
a marble stuluo. Sho mado no ro
sponso, and did nol even uppenr to be
conscious of Iho question asked her.
After a painful pause of a few mo
menls thejiidgo, whoso vnico trembled
with emotion, said :
"Your sileneo indicating thnt you
hnvo nothing to offer, the judgment of
the court is that on Friday, the

iff, and that on Friday, tho 2Sth day
of July next, yon by the Sheriff ap
pointed, bo hung by tho neck until
you aro dead, and may God hnvo
merry on your soul.
The sceno in tho court room from
tho commencement of the remarks by
the judgo was ono of Intense interest.
Tho room was not crowded, tho gen
erul public opinion beinilhnl the case
would not bo decided until this even
ing. Al the vory opening ol the lip

bo denied. The prisoner watched tho
countenance of tho judgo with iho
most intense eagerness, and when ho
remarked thnt ho could see no ground
for a new trial, sho buried her fuee in
her mother's lap and sobbed bitterfy.
Her little (laughter was not with her.
As the judgo proceeded sho struggled
against emotion, and succeeded some
what in overcoming it. The sound of
the judge's trembling vnico was only
broken by tho sobs of tho women in
the court room
A SCENE OF EXCITEMENT.
At the conclusion of tho sentence,
the oourt having been adjourned and
nearly all the spectators having risen 1
lo their feet, Mrs. Fair nnd her moh.
cr boing still seated, a gray haired I
man, who had been scaled within tho '
lobby, advanced to the prisoner a if.
