Made tiik Lahhini. John ITall,
Esq., has been re appointed and con

District of Pennsylvania. Ho has been
a good officer and is a much bettor man
than any of bis competitors.
Col. Forney's article on Jefferson
and Hamilton, to bo found on our first

about politics when the country was

Ohio Leads. The Philadelphia
Times says : The surface of tho build

auguralion ball is to be held covers two
and a quarlor acres. ' Tho two acros
aro reserved for Ohio; tho rest ot the
Union will have to slow itself away
some how in tho quarter acre.
The opponents of Quay, for Senator,
assign as a reason that he was innlru

our memory serves us, Governor lloyt
was equally guilty, and should bo

and so was Lieutenant Governor Stone.
What a flock ot unclean political birds !
benator n aliaco has written an
able article for tho Xorth American

and we will publish it in our next is

Vacation. Congress has adjourned
over the holidays, Iron) the 221 of
Docembcr until tho 5th of January.
Thero was quite a contest ovor tho
question,but Monday's meeting showed
that if the adjournment was defeated
there would be no quorum in either
Hoiiso after Thursday.
How 11 am Salted. By force of
public opinion as exists in Itussia Its
government has boon compelled to re
poal tho tax on salt. But against the
outrageous tax on salt in this country
publio opinion bas provod powerless.
Id Russia the tax on salt was levid for
the purpose of revenue. In thiscountry
the tax on tho poor man's salt is not
tor rovenuo, but is a bounty for mo
nopoly. Pretty Evenly Divided. Genoral
Hancock carried ninotecn States and
. Garfield ninetocn. Except that tho Re
publicans kept possession of the official
flesh-pots they bavo but littlo to boast
of. The pooplo of the United States
are about evenly divided bolwoon tho
two great parties, and subtract the
negro vote from tho aggregate Repub

A Good Move. Secretary Thomp
son, In resigning his position in the
Cabinet to tako the chairmanship ot
the American Committco for promot
ing tho Isthmus Ship Canal projoctod
by M. Da Lessops, does a wise thing.
It is wise, because tbe salary of the
Chairman is fixed at 125,000 per an
num,and that is moro than Mr. Thomp
son can onrn, in any position. And,
then, bis duties in the Cabinet will end
on the 4th of March, while it may take
years to break tho backbone of the

tinents by making an ocean channel
"Busted" bp. A syndicato of coffee
merchants, the firms of Arnold k Co.,
and Bowie, Dash & Co., of New York,
and Kimball C'o, ol Boston, who bad
engaged In an endoavor to control the
coffee trade of tha country, came to a
disastrous ending week bolore last,
each being loroed into bankruptcy, the
liability of tha trio of firms reaching
over 14,000,000. Those men had com-
' bined together to force up the price of
coffee and thereby compel the con
sumers ol the country to pay tribute
to then, but they were overwhelmed
by an exceedingly large crop of that
article of merchandise, and their dis
comfiture will result in a general re
duction in tho price of coffee and tbe
benefit of the publio generally.
OmciAL "Cheek." Such is the re
mark that tho editor ol the Cambria
Freeman makes about "the Govern
ment" lie says: A good many of
our publio men are abundantly sup
plied with wbat la known as "cheek,"
bat R. B. Hayes can discount them all.
How rclresbing It is to hear him talk
in his messago abont "fraudulent prac

or, it is clear now that ho was not en
gagod In any intrigue with tho Repuh
lican ruaiiagora to deliver the olectorul
voto ol the Stuto of New York to Gar
field. On Friday last the Conkling
Artbur Republicans in the New York
city llourd of Aldermen combined with
the Tilden Cooper Pcmocruts in that
body, to confirm 11 ay or Cooper's ap
pointment of a successor to John Kelly
in the Comptrollorsbip. Thero was a
completo division of tho city officers
between tbe high contracting parties.
Not a single Tammany or Kelly man
is embraced in tho list. Of the eloven
nppeiuts made by the Mayor and con
firmed by the Board of Aldermon, six
aro Conkling Republicans and five are
When tho bargain was made for
this division of tbe offices is not so
clear. It is likely, however, that the
basis of the contract was agreed upon
prior tq the election in 1878, when
Edmund Cooper was elected Mayor by
a combination of Republicans and anti
Tammany Democrats. John Kelly has
been justly criticised lor bis defeat of
Governor Robinsou in 1H79. That is
the head and front of bis offending
against tho Democratic party. But
the defeat of Augustus Scholl, tho reg
ular Democratic candidato lor Mayor
of Now York in 1878, by tho support
ers of Tilden and Robinson, was an aot
of treason to the Democracy equally
gravo. It gave Kelly a plausiblo pro-
toxt lor opposing tho ro election ofl
Governor Ilobiuson, and it has just re
sulted in turning over tho most im
portant offices in Now York city to tho
Republican party. With cvory good
Democrat who desires tho success of,
his party, wo aro inclined to say, "A
ploguo o' both your houses!" and
lo hopo that now since Kelly is no
longer Comptroller, and Tilden only
thinks about Jersey heifers, the Democ
racy of New York will ut last be per
milted to organize in the interest of the
party instead ol disorganising as here
tofore for the benefit of ambitious and
OvsaBOARD. John Kelly, tho Tam
muny leader of Now York, has been
turned out of his position as Comp
trailer of that city, by a union ol Re
publicans and Democrats who aro
followers of Mr. Tilden. It was the
unfortunate personal warfare of these
leaders that lost tho Stato of Now
York to Gen. Hancock and thus do.
fcated him lor President. If those
factious leaders could both be sunk as
low as plummet ever Bounded it would
be a blessing of vast magnitude to the
public, and especially to the Demo
cratic 'party. Each proves himsolf
utlorly wanting in manhood and pa
triotism by persistently iorcing his
personal quarrel upon tho party,
dividing and distracting it, and thus
keeping up continual defeat. Thank
the laws of nature, ago and bodily in
firmity must soon dispose of one of
them. The newly appointed Comp
trailer, Allan Campbell, strode into the
Comptroller's office just before noon on
the 11th inst., and up to tbe desk
where Kelly sat. Kelly rose and re
ceived him, but did not offer to Bhuke
hands.. The two men were political
enemies, and tboy had not spoken for
montns. Campbell produced the big
certificate of appointment, and hand
ing it to Kelly tho latter read it
through carefully, and then looked at
the big red seal. Then bo extended
his hand cordially to Campbell, and
welcomed bim as his successor. This
done, Kelly put on his big overcoat and
his tall bat, and telling Campbell that
he would gladly furnish any informa
tion desired, bo mado his way out of
Just the Truth. The Christian at
Work says that Gonoral Grant has boon
fully and more than amply repaid for
his military service ; as President he
received a larger salary than any Pres
ident before him ; ho has bad gifts in
numerable, and is now in receipt of a
handsome income. But apart from
this, the office is not at all necessary
to the preservation of tho General's
dignity, as is claimed. Money and
emoluments mav bo necessary lo sun
port tbe dignity of an exalted office,
but aro novcr a factor in securing tbe
dignity of the individual a man who
cannot be dignified without money can
not buy dignity with money. Besides
it is not the province of Government
to converse tbe dignity of individuals
every man must look out for his own
dignity. Such an office was not neccs-
sary for Washington, and Coriolanus
returned to his plough without loss of
Fortunate ton Tin Bane.. The

The Next Senator. The Ciimbria
Freeman has this to soy about tho ap
proaching election of a United Stales
Sonntor: "Tho Democracy of this
State, liko the Democracy ol tho Union,
is not in a position just now to reward
such llrithftil, fearless und prominent
representatives as Hon. William A
Wallace, but it is at leant in tbe power
of the Democratic members of our
Statu Legislaluro to show thoir appre
ciation of, tho earnest and efficient sorv
ices rendered to the party for so many
yeais by this gallant son of Pennsyl
vania. Wo mean, of course, that thoy
can give him thoir united support for
v nitod States Senator, a position which
he at present fills with infinito credit
to himself and unquestionable advan
tage to the Stato and country. To be
sure the honor will be an empty one,
but it will show that the Democracy
still holds him in well-deserved esteem,
and whether or not bu dosiros such
recognition at their hands, it is a duty
tho Democratic- members of the Legis
lature owe to him, to themselves and
to their constituents to vote as a unit
in bis favor. Let thorn not fail therein
in when the time comoa tor action."

Tarift The Correct View. Tha
Philadelphia Record gives '.he protec
tionists a wipe of this kind: "The
iarmors during the past yoar have sent
out ofthe country 1700,000,000 worlh
ol stuffs digged out the ground or rais
ed on top of it. They have kept tbe
balance of trade In ourlavor.and have
kept all the wheela of manufacturing
industry turning around. At tho same
time they have paid the bulk of tbe
taxes on imported commodities. Our
whole commercial fabric stands on this
basis. Yet the yelping protectionists,
who arc fed from tbe bounty abstracted
from the farmers' earnings, ascribed
our prosperity to themselves. They

they think thoy light tho world."
A "Suckee" Funeral. The editor
of tbe Atlanta (Ga.) Consrilufion twits
a couple of Illinois men in this way:
"Editor Mcdill and John Logan have
buried the grubbing hoe in a littlo
private cemetery of their own. The
basis ol the obsequies waa (1) that Ed
itor Medill used bis editorial language
in a Pickwickian sense, and (2) that
Logan didn't have tima to road the
copy ol tho Chicago Tribune in which
they appeared. It seems that Logan
keeps a trained billy goat In bis front

digest unfriendly newspapers."

Failures. Commercial failures ap
pear to be the order of the day in spile
of the election of Garfiold. The othor

Now the tobacco trade seems to be
smitten. Zeidenborg & Co. of Now
York and Key West, manufacturers of
cigars and importers ol tobacco, have
failed with liabilities estimated at ?500,

tobacco firms in the world. E. Si A.
Triodman,wliolcsalo dealers in tobacco,
St. Louis, and G. Follon and Sons,
tobacco commission merchants and
cigar manufacturers, Charleston, have
also succumbed. Had General Han
cock been elected Radical Rome would
bowl over such misfortunes. But it is
all right now.
It is Remarkable Forney's Prog
ress remarks: How singularly im
prosBivo ono lesson of tho late election !
The namo of Gonoia! Hancock was
worshipped in many thousand of house
holds, North and South ; tbo namo of
Mr. Garfield was shunned as a thing of
shame. While tbe ono aroused tho
admiration of the Democrats, tho othor
oxcited tho anger of tbe Republicans,
because Hancock was so' cosy to love,
and Garfield so impossible lo defend.
And yet the soldier was defatod, and
tho jobber elocted. Is this example
quite safe ? Can a people preserve its
own self-respect, when it allows those it
despises to control its destiny ?
Hold On ! Tho editor of the New
srk (Ohio) Advocate Lukes the liberty
to make this kind of a fling at one of
our Pennsylvania statesmen: "Sam
Randall declares that ho prefers pro
tection for Pennsylvania interests to
the true cuuso of the Democracy. It
is right onougb for .Samuel to stand by
his beloved Stato ; but men who aspire
to the leadership ol the Democratic
party must possess broader views of
statesmanship. They must spread over
the whole country. Randall should be
sent to the. rear." Those Buckeye

Pherson givos the political complexion
of the next Congress, as follows : 117

Roadjusters. As thero aro a number
of contested seats, and Republican
Congressmen aro notorius for voting

facts, tbo Republican majority It ill
doubtless bo increased.
Talk it Over. Tho LouisvllloCeur
tr appeals, in double leads, for a full
and fair discussion of tho tariff. A live
question liko this should be kept warm
the year round. If tbe Democratic
party can seenro tho sorvicos of a few
leadors who are not afrrdd to advocate
and explain true Democratic doctrine,
they will knock the lilo out of the tar
iff bugaboo at least a year before the
next Presidential election.

month! ago the Commissioner of Pen

tbe past few years a largo number ot
applications for pensions for the widows
and children of deceased colored sol
diershad boon filed hy parties residing
in this city or vicinity. Many of those
claims bad boon allowed, and the claim
ants had been drawing their pensions
regularly. In every instance tho claim
woe mado in boball of tho boin-at-law
of some soldier who had been a mem
ber of the 102d regimont of colored
voluntoers, enlisted in Detroit. Tbe
claims having been proven, they were
in due limo allowed. Finally some
thing transpired to lead the authorities
it Washington to suspect something
wrong tn connection with those colored
Jensions, and Special Agent F. A. Wad
ell was accordingly sent horo lo in

few days bofore ho obtained a mass of
testimony implicating a colored man
named James C. Richardson, and Ku

defrauding tbe United Statos. Numer
ous pensioners fled to the Canadian
town of Windsor, across the river. It
appears that tbo alleged originator ot
this wholesale. scheme to defraud the
Govornment was J. C.Richardson. Ho
managed to secure a copy of the mus
ter roll af Ibe 102d regiment, and took
it to Lansing and had tbe Adjutant
General give bim tho names of those
killed in action. He would then say
to a colored woman that she was enti
tled to a pension and readily secure
her co-operation. He would then tako
ber to Fecht, who would prepare the
papers, and they would be sent to
Washington. No claim over filod by
Richardson was disallowed, so thor
oughly fortified was he witb manufact
ured evidence. Among those who ap
plied was Richardson's wife, undor an
assumed name. It is estimated that
be has defrauded the Government to
the tune of 175,000, which sum, it is
charged, wasjdivided between Richard
son, Fecht, and the colored applicants,
tho two men getting the larger share.
Tbe trial of the two men has been in
progress in the United Slates Court
hero all tbe woek, and resulted to-night
in the acquittal or fecht ana the con
viction ot Rich ardson.
COL. FORXEY O.V HA YES.
The editor ot the Philadelphia Prog
ress,. Forney, has this to Bay about
tho last Messago of his Fraudulency :
President Haves has richly earned
till tbe honors that should be paid to a
Peckaniffian Pharisee by the political
allusions in bis message. He has in
jected into its prosy prolixity sonio of
tho most unjust, ungenerous, hypocriti
cal, and despicable utterances thai ever
Disgraced a 1 residential document.
Alter making civil service relorm
leading feature of his letter of accept
ance in 1876, and after being so deeply
impressed with the sacrodness ot bis
pledge on this Bubioct that ho went to
extreme lengths, as President, in issu-
ingstringent civil service relorm orders,
in forbidding improper interference
witu elections by his olllcials, proUib
iting tbe assossmont ol government
employes for partisan purposes, und
after lamely witnessing tha violation
of all these rules in tho most glaring
nnd outrageous manner, he has the
assurance to deliver a long diatribe on
the inquiry of the doctrine that to tbe
victors belong Ibe spoils, and to ro
commond the passage ot a law which
would "contain stringent provision
against the use of official authority to
coerce me political action ot private

ever there may be ol forco or of wis

as bad a grace from him as if it wore

The opening clauses of tha mcasugo,
referring to "sectionalism as a factor
in our politics," and to alleged infringe
ments ol the right of tbo freedom to
exercise thoir political privilcgos, are
oharacteristicoutcroppingsnf tbe spirit
that dictated tha oivil service reform
tergiversations. It is a flagrant out
rage lor the President of the Uniled
States to assert, as bis messago does,
that "the paramount question still is as
to the enjoyment ol the right by evory
oitiacn who has tha requisite qualifica
tions, of freely casting bis voto and
having it honestly counted," and to
apply this maxim exclusively to the
Southern Slates. In this good Renub-

OHIO AM) THE U. S. SUPREME
During tho lust twenty years the
South proper has had no representa
tive on tho bench of the Supromo
Court. Judgo Harlan bails from the
border Stuto of Kentucky. Ho suc
ceeded to the vacancy left by Judge
Davis, through an intrigua against his
partner and friend, Renjumin H. Bris
low, to whom, the placo had boen
The recent nomination of Judgo
Woods in placo of Strong isobjoctod to
because he is charged to tho Stuto ol
Georgia, whoro Woods has recently
resided ; and an uttcmpt is thus made
to impose on tho country by tho l'ulse
pretence that tho South gets a Judgo,
whereas in fact a third Ohio man is
added to the Court. Indeed, it may
bo said he is tho fourth, because Har
lan livej across the river, and is wholly
identified with tho ideas that prevail
Judgo Woods is in no sense aa emi
nent lawyer. Indeed, ho does not
compare in professional standing with
any member of tho present Court.
Going fresh from tho Legislature of
Ohio into tho war as a Lieutenant Colo
nel, he served until its close, lie then
settled down in Alabama to seek bis
fortune, as his brother in law Warner
did, who became a carpet-bag Senatoi
from tbat State. j
Through Warner's influence, Grant
appointed Woods a Federal Judge
eleven years ago, and ho has held the
office since that lime, and administered
its duties decently, but with only mod
erate ability. Contrasted witb the
Durells, who shamefully prostituted
their trusts to tbo behests of parly and
to corrupt uses, Judgo Woods has ap
peared to groat advantage, and lor that
reason chiefly ho has gained tho conli
denco and tho good w ill of tbo people,
who bod suffered untold oppression
and outrages from other Judges.
Putting aside all sectional considera
tions, and tho bare justico of giving
tho great geographical divisions ol the
I mon something liko equitable repre-
sentation in tho Court of last resort, tbe
question naturally comes up whether
it is fair to appoint one thud of the
beneb from a single ntuto. It is an
open secret that Stanley Matthews is
to succeed Judgo Swnine, bo that aflcr
ibis change shall bavo been made tbero
will be Chief Justico W site, and if con
firmed, Associato Justices Woods and
Matthews, threo Ohio men, to say
n thing of Justico Hurlun, just across
the rivor, and practicolly to bo consid-
cred ftB a fourth Uhio man
Tbe Court is thus to bo packed in
the interest ot Ohio. This cannot bo
disguised by any thin veil of decoption,
such as Ilayes has tried to conceal the
nomination of Woods with. One of
the throe departments which, united,
tor our system ot republican govern
ment, would by the addition ol a single
voto bo put in tho handB of a single
State. It will not be pretended tbat
Ibis consolidation of power is tree from
the gravest dnngers. Ought this risk
to be taken when tbo Senuto can pre
vent it ?
Tho point is not mado against J ud ;c
woods personally, but against tho
glaring and unjust partiality by which
one Stato would bave roproscntation
on tbo bench equal to twenty-six
mates, without including justice Har
lan, who, as before said, may bo reck
oncd as an Ohio Judge. If Judgo
Woods was tbe equal ol John Marshall,
the point wonld not bo at all weakened
Of' course, tho Sonalo will not bo in
a hurry to confirm his nomination. If
nothing butter than niero partisan
argument can bo made against Judgo
w ooils, then bo ougbt not to be reiect-
od. Tbo ensn must stand upon higher
ground than that, or It should lull
Six Judges const iluto a quorum of
the Kuprcme Uoiirl. With Ulinord
and Hunt disabled, the nomination of
woods hung up, and the intonded
resignation of Sway no at an early day,
me courts may como to nn unexpected
halt. The Fraudulent President has
carried things with a pretty higb
band, and it is about time that be was
taught that there is some restraint on
such abuses. jcw lor Sua.
S1TTISO BULL'S CASE.
Tbo War Department has recoived
through Captain Brolherton. dated

tne scout Allison, who was sent out lo

he arrived nt Woody Mountain Nov.

tho Northwest Police, with Captain
Colton, his adjutant. "Col. Irvino in

ho must wuUb lor warm days lo move:
and ho adds that he is not quito ready,
but he cannot till what he has lo do
to get ready." Allison thinks thai
Sitting Bull hopes that Major Walsh
will return, lie has no doubt but that
Walsb did make an agreement with
him, and that WIhIi waa in communi
cation with Sitting Bull since be want
r.nsl until about ton iluyssgo. He has
hopes of bringing Silling Hull in soon,
bused on the giving out ol their supply
of meat. The "Gaul" baa lull with
twenty lodgoa and aevon more will
start for Popular river. Sans-are Sioux
wisb to go lo their menus at Keogb.
This will leavo Sitting Bull wilb ouly

ing and renegade white men who ara
doing the mischief.
A ragged old tramp waa recently
arrested at Buffalo, N. Y. Whon taken
to the police atation and aubjorted to
the customary search, lie resisted furi
ously. His reason was apparent when

LEWIS' CAVE IX PERRY
People who are not brought in con
tact with the mass of nieu bave no
knowledge of tbo. oxlont lo which au
porstitioo and incredulity sway their
minds, and direct them in tbo pursuit
of objects entirely visionary. For a
your or more there bud been a mania
among very many ignorant people, lor
treasure bunting, ibe inlatuation Doing
that in Wotiel's woods there are large
amounts of money buried, the duposits
of some unknown persona years ago.
The idea of some is that Lewis, tho
famous robber, gathered this money
and buried it in the locality named. A
rocont inspection ol tbe woods showed
that at the roots of almost every old
tree lurgo holes bad been dug by par
lies bunting for his money, some ot
tho leaders ot whom live in this city.
Not only in that woods but in places
ovor tho country as far up as Dauphin
excavations have boon made by (liner-
onl partios in anticipation of finding
deposits ot Lewis ill gotlon treasure.
Opposito Dauphin, on tho Perry county
sido of tbe rivor, is a cavo known as
Lewis' cavo, which has long bad tho
reputation of containing lost treasures.
Several attempts have lately been
made to secure this money, none of
which rcaliced tho expectations ot tho
explorers. Ibe rear ot tho cave con
tains an immense pile of stones, be
ncalb which, it is alleged, l.owis buried
money and jewels of great vuluo. One
party attempting t dig under the
stones, found several iron ramrods,
supposed to have been used by Lewis
but as yei no money has boen dug
Lewis, the highwayman, was an im
provident wretch, like all his class, who
wasted in roistoring what be gained in
robbery. Hence the absurdity of tbo
notion that he evor buried any treas
ure. But tho superstition concerning
IhoBO treasures is none the less strong
among the ignorant and idle, who aro
induced to hunt for tbem by so-called
fortune tellers who pretend to be able
to indicate precisely where they are
deposited. liarriaiiurg Palriut.
