fiATimDAY MOBN1NO JANUAKY 10, 1871.
Hon. Coleb Cushtng, appointed by
the President JJInister to Spain, vice
Gen. Sickles, resigned, 1ms accepted,
and his nomination Us been confirmed
by the Senate.
Attorney General Williams, In a let
ter dated tho 8th Instant, withdraws
from tho nomination to tho office of
Chief Justice. No other nomination
has yet been made by tho President.
The N. Y. Sun wants to know
whether It is "Just riglit to tax a poor
man's tea, coffee and tobacco In order
to pay Gen. Grant $50,000 a year In
stead ot tho $25,000 for which lie agreed
to servo the people?" ,
Ex-Sheilff llrenncn and, his deputy,
Shields, of New Tork, have been found
guilty of contempt In disobeying tho
order of Court and allowing Henry W.
Genet to escape from custody, and sen
tenced to pny a fiife of $250 each and
30 days In the county jail.
Tho pews In Plymouth Church
(Henry Ward Heecher's) were sold on
Monday evening last. Tho amount
realized was $50,470, against $00,232
lat year. The highest price paid for
one pew was $530, which 'was knocked
down to Mr. C. O. Dennis, and was
tho fifth choice.
Tho report of Senators Graham,
Itutan, and Davis, Special Commission
ers from Pennsylvania to .the. Vienna
Exposition, recommends the appropria
tion of $1,000,000 from the State Treas
ury In aid of the Philadelphia Centen
nial, and says that Pennsylvania is
already committed, by tlu legislation of
last session, to aid tho project. It also
dwells on tho advantages that would
accrue to tho city and State.
Tho Hon. David B. Hellish of New
York Tuesday Introduced a bill to pro
vided a national currency, which lias
several Important and popular features.
It provides for tho substitution of legal
tender notes forlhenatlonallanknotes,
atid that a certain proportion of these
notes shall bo received In payment of
customs. The bill vvns referred to the
Committee on Hanking nnd Currency,
and it is known that several members
of that committee favor tho principle
of the bill.
The revised estimates were laid be
fore the House Tuesday. The only ma
terlal reductions are mado by the War
Department, which pares dpwn over
twelve millions. It is noticeable, how
ever, in the revised estimates for pub
lic Improvements, under direction of
tho War Department, that there is no
paring down for work to be dono in
Washington City. The same lavish cs
inatesasked for Improvement of squares,
reservations, White House and grounds,
and all that sort of thing, are again re
ported. Uii paring down In liver and
harbor Improvements and public works
in other sections of tho country Is al
ways vigorous and often sweeping, but
in that favored latitude the expenditures
aro to be heavier than last year.
Gen. Sherman was before tho Com
mittee on Military affairs Monday and
Tuesday, In response to an invitation
of tbo committee, to give his views on
on tho subject of reducing the expenses
of tho army. Tbo summary of his
opinion, is that tho force ot the cavalry,
the artillery and tho Infantry is now at
Its minimum, In view of tho extent of
Jand and sea frontier which It lias to
cover and protect; that if tho pruning
knife is to bo applied at all, It should
be only to the engineer and staff corps
over which he has no control, and that
with the exception of the forts in New
York and Boston harbors, Fort Alca
trazlnSan Fiajicltco harbor, and soma
of the forts In Portland harbor, Maine,
tho other sea -coast defences of tho
country are not of tho slightest im
portanco, and should not have another
dollar spent on them. Ho recognizes
tho possible contingent Importance of
Fort Schuyler and tho fort at Wlllet's
Point, Now York, in the event of the
Hell Gato channel being opened, but
thinks that until that time no expendi
ture should bo made there.
The representatives of thirteen lead
lng Western railways recently met In
Chicago to tnko measures forabolUhlng
tho deadhead system. They resolved
to limit the distribution of free posses
over each road to its own actual em
ployees, ilvo or six of the leading offi
cers of other roads, and the agoutg of
tho principal cxprcs;, telegraph and
transportation companies whose con
tracts call tut passes. About fifteen
Athrrcompaoif have since agreed to
tbe resolution. The nw eonitltutlnn
fl ,JVifliy'lijiiand law of Illinois
jirobfWt th IsffulDf? lo 'those Stale ot
passes by railroads to any but persons
actually In tho service of tho roads; but
wo fear that certain usclul and favored
individuals will continue, to travel with
out.paylng fare. Either corrupt legis
lator and officials will be conslderedas
actually In the service of the company1,
or conductors will be Instructed to for
get to call for their fare; or, what is
more likely, freo tickets will bo sent to
them and charged to the contingent nc-
count. Whether clergymen and coun
try editors ride freo Is a matter ot con-
sentience only to themselves and tho
companies over whose lines they travel;
but whether Presidents and Governors,
Congressmen and legislators rldo with
out paying over the lines of companies
from whom they are honestly entitled to
no special constderal Ion, Is a matter of
public moment. N. Y. Sun.

A Washington d'patch, dated tho
8th Inst., says: The Indications nre that
the Committed on Banking and Currency
will ropoit a bill looking to tho winding
no of all national banks. Tho temper
of the House. Is decidedly In favor of
tho substitution of Greenbacks for the
national bank currency, ami If a well
devised bill for that purpose li reported
from thu committee It will undoubtedly
be nassrri. It Is doubtful, however.
whether tho Senate cimld'be brought to

The, Actors In the Last Per
formance In Madrid.
The names of those who ficuro In the
so-called conn d'etat in Madrid and In
the new Cabinet clearly indicate tnat
the ocTiirrences of Saturday and Sun
day last aro .but the preludti to the
restoration ot a monarcny in opain,
Gen. Pavla. who Is reported to hp a
friend of thu, deposed President Cas
telar. lsnotouly if to Bepubllcan. but
he Is a member of one of tlm most aris
tocratic families of Spain. He served
tinder his uncle, the Marquis or Nova-
Itches, who coninmnded thu Queen's
army at the memorable battle of Alco
lea. That, battlo was fought between
the royalist troops' and the! forces with
which Serrano was then advancing from
Cadiz upon Madrid; and tho defeat of
the former obliged tho Queen and Gen.
Jose de la Concha, her last Prlmo Min
ister, to seek safety in flight. Not one
of tho new cabinet Is a republican.
Admiral Tooete. the colleacuu of Ser
rano, nnd w in Willi nun proclaimed n
Itepubllo at Cadiz, remained with his
fleet at the latter port while Serrano
strangled the republlo at Madrid, ba
uasta was the Minister of Amadeus,
who vainly endeavored to persuade the
King to overrmo mo constitution. Za
vala, Flguerola and Becerra are bu
reiucrats of the purest water, and ser-
vllo worshlnners of tho rising sun.
Whether Prince -Alfonso or the Duke
of Montpontier be ultimately called to
the throne, the farcical republic of
Spain, of which our Administration has
tried to make a cover for Its own blun
ders and cowardice, has terminated In
a ridiculous fizzle. N. Y. Suu.
