of expenditure. Tbo promises of oivil
sorvico reform, so vigoroualy mado in
theory, have not one pf them been
kept in practice. At tho very moment

It is un undeniablo fact that tho
whole foroo and influoncoof the pres
ont Administration huva been on the
sido of the expansion theory of tiov
emment, as against tho principle of
oonnning the tunctions of Congreas
and the Exocutivo within a safe prao-
tical snhoro. Under tbe inHiionce of
tho Administration tbe back-aalary
grab of 1873 was passed, wbjch added
fifty por ceub to tire pay of the mem
bers of Congress, and a hundred per
cent, to the salary of tko Pronidont
Tbe formor disgraceful grab was swilU

constitutional amendment, necessarily
remains unrepealed until the expira
tion of tho present tenure of ofliee of
We have scon tbo tendency towards
expending the functions and the ex
pense of tbe Government manifested
in numerous directions. New bureaus
have boon croatod which havonoprop
or relation to tbo powers ol Congress,
as clearly dofinod in the Constitution.
Instead of cutting down the office
and enforcing economy in all directions
with the nataral decrease of the enor
mously extended business of the de
partments and bureaus which grow
immediately out of tho war, we havo
seen the whole Republican forces in
and out ot Congress combined In the
successful effort to hold on to every
avenue that lod to political patronage,
and every channel that communicated
ith the publio crib. Tbe expenses of
the Government, which it was prom
ised in the last Presidential campaign
in 1872 should bo largely reduced, have
instead been steadily and largely in
creased with the single exception, por-
baps, of tho last fiscal year. For tbe
fiscal ycarol 1872 they were $153,000,.
000, exclusivo of tho interest of tho
public debt ; for the year 1873 they wore
$180,000,000 ; for the yoar 1874 they
rose to 1194,000,000, and for tho year
1875 tho amount is placed at 1172,000,
0Q0. This, too, at a time when univer
sal economy and curtailment have
boen the order of the day in all private
business and publio corporations.
That tho whole weight ot President
Grant's personal influence is in favor
of tho expansion of expenditure and
the consequent burdona of taxation ia
evidenced tn tho following facts: lie
kas directly recommended in bis mes
ago and passed personally upon tho
atttention of Congress all those enor
mous internal improvement enterprises
which, if carried into effect, would add
hundreds of millions to the National
debt, and seriously embarrass the pub
lio credit. 11 0 is in favor of tbe James
River and Kanawha Canal job, the
groat jolty system of Captain Eads,
and that comprehensive plan for ex
hausting the Treasury known as tho
Mississippi Levee Improvement. lie
has again and again recommended ex
pensive schemes of enlarging the navy
and swelling the army expenditure by
additional appropriations. Ho urircd
upon Congress the purchaso of all the
telegraph lines of the country by tho
Government, and the management of
this purely personal and butinoss
agency, which is used by comparatively
a small part of t he population, by a
corps of Federal offlcors, and at tbo ex
pense ot the whole people Ho re
commended Postmaster-General Cros-
well's foolish schemo of Pont Office
Savings Banks, by which the United
Statos Government would havo gono
into tbe banking business on an enor
mous scalo, swelling aliko tbo powor
and the temptations to fraud and em
bezzlement of every Postmaslor in the
While such have boon the course
and the altitude of tbo President on
domostic questions, bis foreign policy,
so far as his own individual guidance
of it is concerned, has been in tbe same
direction of expanding Ike power ot
government and increasing tho taxes
of the peoplo. II is preposterous scheme
for the purchaso of San Domingo ban al
most faded from the minds of -our easy
going and rapidly progressing pooplo.
It would have boon, if carried out, the
annexation of a foreign race of igno
rant and uncultivated peoplo to the
Republic at an expense of millions, and
tho carrying on a kind of personal
government on a foreign islund, tho
military and naval expense of which
would bavq entuiloj a perpetual drain
upon the Treasury. Only liwt year lie
sent, without tbo slightest authority
of law, a personal envoy totlieSamoan
Islands, armod witb United Stales
cannon and other presents, to a savage
King, and it is understood that his in
fluence maintains Colonel Sleinborger
there to-day, nominully Prima Minis
ter, but virtually sovoreign, over a
tribe of half-naked savages. Ilia well-
known desire to extend tbe glory of
his administration by interference in
the affairs of Cuba, so long curbed by
the prudence and wisdom of his Rocre-
tary of Qtato, has of lalo appeared inl
a mors palpablo form than ovor. Tho
United Statos does nut want Cuba;
we have enough unsettled and turbu
lent elementa at borne, and we have
no men to waste and no money to flit
ter away In abortive attempts to com
pose civil wan abroad.
While such has been tbe course of
the President In regard to groat pub
lio questions, ha has signalised his ad
ministration by introducing an amount
nd variety of nepotism heretofore un
heard of into many department of the
publio sorvico. JTut to speuk of tho
numbers of his brothers in-law whom
ho appointed and still nmiiiluins In
offleo (none ol whom, it may bo re
marked without doing tko slightest In-
ljustico, possess any conspicuous quali
fications for tkoir posts;, lie bus en
riched his favorites and friends In other
directions, and has thrown (ho all
powerful influT'iico of tko administra
tion iu favor of making tho path of
lorlune smootn. 110 was 1110 wen
known friend und confidant of tbo Dis
trict ol Columbia fling even going so
far, slier Congress had abolished tbo
fling government for its misdeeds, as
to nomiuuto Its bead, tho notorious
Boss Shophord, to bo one of tho new
Commissioners for tho government of
tbo District ; although in this.multer,
as in tho Sau Domingo business, he
has apparently been convinced against
bis will, that bo had made a mistake
at least pt is a fact that his last annual
message to Congress omits ull mention
of tho merits ot the municipal "im
provements" which havo bankriijrlod
tho District of Columbia, and aro now
chargod upon tho National Treasury.
Tho flepublicau party have proved
no exception to the general rulo that
parties long possessed of powor tesil
inovitably to corruption. The Cus
tom House frauds, tho Sanborn moiety
contractu, tho peculations and ombei-
zlomonU of tho Postmasters and Pay
masters, tho Paciflo Mail Bribery, the
Credit Mobilior swindle, the navy ring
frauds, and tho robberies of t he whisky
thieves, all perpetrated within tiio
bosom of tho party of Republican nfligo
kolders, aro ovidcuces of-tko crying
need for purification and reform. Tke
bribery at elections, tko open purchase
of seats in tko Senate of tho United
States by promises of ofllco and pay
menls of money, and the looso and in
different way in which political cor
ruption is regarded in muny quarters,
nro mournful signs of a docsdenco ol
honor and conscience in our political
life. It rests with tho people to say
whether tbo Government service shall
bo still further degraded, and the men
wbo hnvo brought it to its present low
estate intrusted with a longer leaso of
power. Rlmll it be said that the breed
ot noble men is lost, and that tho con
duct of all'airs in this Republic is per
manently captured by political huck
sters, by men who inako merchandise
of ofllco, and treat powor as a perquislto
ot their personal ambition
is Tm: world aoixa to the
Dean Statileyjn Westminister Ab
bey, yesterday, spoko of tho fears of
many at tho present time that tko
world is growing worse. "It muy be
tkat some time in our gloomy moods
wo are inclined to think wo cannot
count on tko continuous advance of
tho onward progress ol our race. It
may bo we are sometimes inclined to
fear that tho latter half of the nine
teenth century is to close fn a lower
morality, a darker philosophy, a de
basement of tho senses, or a torm of
gross superstition. It may bo that
diabolical crimes shall rise again which
wo bad hoped wore dosd forever, that
statesmen may again become corrupt
and self-seoking, that the loaders of
sects and churches will again prefer
tho outward to tbe inward, the natural
to tbe spiritual, tko seen to tko unseen.'
Thoro are plenty of revelations to bear
out In part a pessimist philosophy;
nor is there any common sense in var
nishing ovor the ugly fucts of tho duy.
It is not always wise to msko the best
of things and to take a cheerful view
of everything sl round. Comparing
ourselves with our forefathers, we hear
of many nearly colossal calamities, Ud
are face to face with a larger number
of groat crimes. Tbe accidents that
shockod them killed or maimed units,
our misfortunes! dcsolato hundreds of
homes. The horrible consequences of
strong drink in brutality to women
and children have multiplied in oar
largo towns. For ono English child
brought up in foul air throe hundred
years ago, thoro are now at least fifty.
For ten men habitually unused - to
country walks in thesixleenth century,
there are now probably ono hundred.
If wo look ubroad and romcmbor the
civil war in America, or tho recent
French war, wo see that tbo numbors
of men engaged in deadly struggle
wore ten or twelve timos tho forces of
our ancestors though great, and the
loss In money and ovory way to tho
nations striving- proportionately in
creased. In trade and commerce dis
honesty has mado gigantic strides ;
tho liny pickings and stealings of the
villages have grown into gigantic city
frauds. Goldsmith's rogue no longer
cheats Farmer Flumborotigb in a bar
gain, or overreaches Moses with "a
gross af blue spectacles," ho starts a
company, and dips his hand in thou
sands of pockets. Then instead of a
few sailors being paid to scuttle a skip,
giving tho passengers, time to escape
in boats, wo havo tbe llremerhaven
monster, who murders by machinery
and winds up an ossussinntisn eight
days in advance of the deed, leaving
no hope for tho victims of the calculated
crime. Moreover, faith has died down
leaving none of tho stern, relentless
seal that Impelled men to die at tho
stuko themselves or burn their neigh,
bor for a clause in a creed. Tbe hival
rous loyalty which placed lilouml goods
at the bidding of a king is vanished,
or is cherished only by a few peasants,
priests and nobles m Biscay and
Navarro. Our theatre revols not on
intellectual but sensuous attractions;
our literature Is all a rnpv un I com
pilation ; our poetry ia hall hearted,
and Borneo, sighing nudor Juliet's bal
cony, is soothed by tho anticipation of
a ilinnor, a cigar and rubber at the
GOINO TOR THE (ioVKRNUKNT. Mrs.
Victoria C. Woodhull, and her sistar,
Miss TonnloC. Claflin, appeared before
the Uniteil Statos Senate committee
on claims to urgo their claims for dam
ages on account of illegal arrest and
imprisonment in Now York in 1873,
on the chargo of Issuing an obsceno
publication, Mrs. Woodhull read a
long statement, setting forth tho man
nor of tholr arrest and tho final quash
Ing of the Indictment byVudgo Blatrh-
ford, and represented that the cost of 1
tholr dofonso exreedod 150,000, to pay
which they were loroed to sell even

Tbo Philadelphia Timet, in alluding
to tho escape of tho head centre of tbo
whisky ring, says : "General Babcock
was nut proven guilty so m'uoh will
he generally conceded. Arraigned on
a chargo of pcouliar gravity, consider
ing all the circumstances ot bis caso, a
vordict of guilty could be reached only
on tho hypothesis that the testimony
was irreconcilable witb his innocence,
and it must be admitted by all that
the evidence was not sufficiently con
elusivo to warrant a judicial oondom-
nation. If this were an isolated or an
ordinary caso, the discussion of the
verdict would ond with tho statement
that the government failed to make
out a clour esse against the accused ;
but the position of General Bubcock is
exceptional In sovoral marked particu
lars. Ho Is an officer of tho army in
high commission, and boss well-earned
soldior's fame to protect, and a judg
ment of guilt against him in the issue
just tried, would, havo reached far be
yond the dashing young Colonel of tho
Engineers who graced the prisoner's
dock. Ho has boon tho most trusted
political adviser and confidant of tho
President of tko United States, and a
record of his guilt, in tho face of tho
deposition from tho White House tes
tifying to bis spotless probity, would
havo borne its withering ourso to tbo
very innorlemploof national authority
ThoBoexeeptional circumstances doubt -
less did much to strengthen the caso:''1 havo not been wanting elsewhere
of the defense. They brought tho
sworn testimonials of Grant and Slier
muii, and a dozen others of revered
reputotions, into court, regardless of
the accepted rules of evidonco, to throw
grave doubts upon tho case of the gov
ornmont that hod boon dug and ham-
mwodoutof unwilling sources ; and
tboy mode tin Tutlons and kindred
rovonuo mendicants hasten to the scono,
under official orders, to explain inex
plicable complications as they arose on
tbo trial. They threw iu and about
the court an element that tempered
tbe pitiloss storm undor which Joyce,
McDonald and others had gone down
and it was not difficult, under all tho
circumstances, for General Babcock to
gain a verdict of acquittal.
Judgod by the record tho vordict
was a proper ono, for no moasuro of 1
prejudice, no public necessity, can jus
tify tbo conviction of any citizen, of
howovor high or low position, who is
not clearly proved to be guilty, and
General Babcock was not positively
proved to be in guilty oomnlicity with
tbe whisky thlovos, But the excep
tional features of tbo case, which havl
operated so powerfully in aid of Gen
eral Hancock's acquittal, also invite a
much mora than ordinarily critical in
quiry into the verdict that tho higher
tribunal of tho nation will render in
his caso. 'That he has been discharged
from the custody of tho law docs not
decide tho issue of his innocence or
guilt in tho judgment of the country
whose honors he wears, and whose in
terests ho is solemnly sworn to main
tain. Tho one pregnant point of the
case as it presents itself to the public,
is that while the government tailed to
prove him guilty, he failed to prove
himself innocont True, undor all or
dinary circumstance, to ask a defend
ant to prove a negative would b not
only unjust, but in every respect un
reasonable ; but it was one ol tbe pecu
liar features of this case that General
Babcock could have established his in
nocence if be really is innocent, and he
owed it to himself, to the Administra
tion of Prosidont Grant, and to the
country to do so. Tho circumstances
which pointed most strongly to his
guilty complicity witb the revenue
plnndorcrs bad their source In cortain
telegrams, confessed to have been sent
to and from Genoral Babcock and tbe
men who are now in prison stripes ;
and it is not disputed that the dis
patches related to the illicit operations
of tho whisky ring. So much stands
out In hideous deformity on tbe record
ot the trial, and it demanded explana
tion. A jury could not assumo that
tho absence of explanation was con
clusive as to the guilt of the defendant,
for crime cannot be inferred in a trial
hot ween tbe government and a citizen,
involving both reputation and liberty ;
but when the roost confidential and
trusted Secretary of the President ex
changes mysterious dispatches with
banded thieves, on tbo subject ot their
movements to promoto their schemes
of plunder, and resists all efforts to get
at their true meaning in a court of
justice, he oonfesses eithor that he is
guilty of actual complicity with the
thieves, or that he was assenting to
political debauchery at the publio cost
that ho daro not confess before the
world. No one will say that Gen,
Babcock is a simpleton ; that he was
doooivd by designing men who simply
used him to advance tholr peculations.
Ho Is 'not a fool, and tho world will
look in any other direction than that
for the solution of his sJ range, and at
times jubilant, dispatches to tboso wbo
mado him their chief agency to keep
tho government from dogging them in
the'r paths of crime, llaof Gor.eral
Bubcock mot these telegrams with
prompt explanation, and shown that
they wore thoughtless or tree from any
intentional wrung, be would have
prtived his innocence; end as it was in
bis powor to prove his Innoconce, if in
nocent be Is, he committed a blunder
that life is too short to overcome, by
kin failure to acquit bimsolf by positive
testimony. And thli failure will con
front him at ovory step of his future.
In vain will ho and his friends plead
that a jury nf his countrymen and an
holiest court havtf acquitted him, for
tbe intelligent judgment of ike nation
will ho that, In failing to unlock the
socrets of bis correspondence with cor
rupt conspirators relating to their In
famous operations, be has conlossed
to tin world that he cannot acquit
himself before tlni sincere judgment of
mankind.. Wo do not assume that, be
cause of this failure, he is guilty of ac
tual complicity with tho men whose
guilt is now admitteoj but if ho was
not so guilty, then ho practically de
clares that hisOpi wore sealed" becauso
the truth would havo exposed a systom
of political debauqhory before which
tbo Administration of President Grant
could not stand. Such Is the lesson of
tho Babcock trial.

A WARXIXa TO CROOKKD EDI
Tho conviction of Mt-Keo in spite of
tbo moat brilliant legal defense that
could havo been made in his behalf, is
the severest blow which the whisky
conspiracy has yet received, and it
forebodes almost certain disaster to
the defendants in the trials that aro
yot to follow. There was little in the
testimony upon which the jury based
their vonlict of guilty that tended to
provo spociflo act ou the part of tho
prisoner; tbe careful secrecy which
had characterized his connection with
the ring forbade muny such disclosures,
but there was, what was of far greater
imjiortaiite, an abundance of corrobora
tive evidence to establish tho fact of
his partnership with McDonald and
Joyce, his bestowal of counsel and in
fluence, und bis subsequent share in
tho profits. It was fervently hoped
by tho defense that tbe jury would re
fuse to convict upon testimony of so
general a character; l had, Indocd,
mat expectation been realised, tho ac
quittal of (leneral Babcock would havo
boon assured almost beyond quoation
But tbo result annihilates the element
of chance from the calculations of the
whisky defendants, and tboy nrobablv
realize now, for the first time, that
nothing will avuil attains! the success
of the government where its caso ia

occasions of like moment, to divert
tho courso of justico by tlio corruption
of the jury, but the St. Louis juries
havo been uniformly drawn from tbo
agricultural districts, and tho virtue of
thegrangors bus withstood ovory temp
tation. If so happen, thon, that tho
evidence against Gen. Bubcock should
prove as strong as Mr. Henderson and
ex-District Attorroy Dyer have fre
quently asserted it to be, it is plain
that nothing can save that unfortunato
gentleman from tko futo wkick kas be
fallen his old acquaintances. But
whatever the significauco of McKce's
conviction in its effect upon future
prosecutions, it can scarcely fail of ex
erting a moral influenco of the most
wholesome- character, McKce was
something more than a more conspira
tor against the revenue At the mo
ment of bis exposure ho controlled a
groat newspaper, powerful in Its opin
ions and floumhing in its finances; ho
poitacssed aliku the confidence of his
buisacsa associates and the esteem of
good citizens generally ; in politics he
occupied the pluce of a leader, and as
such compelled unusual respect. It
was possible for this man, had bis
ambition so inclined him, to have bo-
conic a public benefactor, and instead
of concluding his career at mid-life as
a convict, to havo passed into a serene
and bonorablo old age, or dying, to
havo lived forovor in the affectionate
remembrance of his fellows. But this
happiness he denied himself, choosing
rather to satisfy bis thirst for wealth,
however foul its sources. There is a
lesson lor editors, it socina to us, in
this melancholy hialory, which they
cannut too quickly nor loo thoroughly
learn. Bo its subscription list ovor so
slondor, and its constituency ever so
humble, there is no newspaper which
does not possess some measure of in
fluence and whose editor some degree
of responsibility. Temptations such as
seduced McKee may oot be likely.to
beset others, but whatever its form,
that must be always regarded as temp
tation which tends, in any way, to
disrupt tho essential relations between
the editor and his public. In politics,
in finance, in trade, in letters, in art,
in religion, tho sentiments of the editor
belong to his paper, and for that alone
should they find expression. Otber
honors may dazzle more for the time
and other powers seem vaster, but
there are few which do not owe their
origin to the press or find porpetuily
through it; tho editor who mistakes
the privilego, as Veil as the duty ot
his position, to wander after the strange
gods of tho outor world runs a sad risk
of bocoming a sacrifice to his idols.
Tb country clamors for a pure press
and honest editors, but it will roceiv'o
neither nntil journalists surrender
themselves wholly to their profession.
McKoe was the editor of the St.
Louis Globe, the leading Radical Organ
of Missouri, and ono of Grant and Bab
cock's bullion, and like Joyce and Mo-
Donald will be compelled to spend tho

A CHECK IX TRASSITV.
AN INCIDENT Ot TUE JAY COO SI TAILVRE.
Before Judge Poirce, tho othor day,
in theCommon Picas, was argued tbo
case of Stern A Bro. vs. tho Farmers
and Mockunics' National Bank. This
watt a suit to comiel tho bank to pay
tho amount of n check to Drexel k Co.
for about 83,000, under too following
circumstances: The 'plaintiffs took
the check to Juv Cooke Si Co. on Ike
16th of September, 1H73, and bought
with It a certificate of deposit. The
chock was deposited by Jay Cooko &
Co. in their hank on that day, but on
the 17lh was returned to thorn because
not indorsed by the plaintiff, to whose
order tho check was drawn. On tho
18lh.it was delivered to their messen
ger, with other mat lent, to get the
plaintiffs' indorsement. The other
maltors delayed the messenger till
about noon, when ho obtained tho in
dorsement, ami ho did not reach tbo
office of Jay Cooko A Co. witb it until
between half-past twelvo and one,
bon ha found thai they had failed
and that tho doors wore cloned. The
plaintiffs about that timo heard of the
failure, and went to tho bank and gave
tbom notice not lo pay tho check,
montioning as a reason the failure of
Jay Cooke A Co., and subsequently
gave thorn a written notice to that of
foot. Tho chock was not in the bank
whon cither tho verbal or written no
tice was givon. It had been indorsed
by Jay Cooke ft Co. after their failure
to W. A J. C. Bullitt upon a special
trust for creditors, was deposited by
blra about the 19tb, paid tohisacoounl.
and Drexol A Co. obargod with it
The plaintiffs noror tendorcd back th
certificate of deposit. The court held
that the transaction of tho Kith was a
complete and finished transaction, and
that, therefore, a titlo tn the check
Tested in Jay Cook A Co.; that the
iudorsoment must bo troatod as having
been made on that day, and that there
