In tins prediction we trust and be

There is;no abuse possible under the

plurality nominates under the Craw
ford county system, a candidate may
be placed on the ticket who has re
ceived only one tenth of the vote
polled and is the' second choice of
nobody. Our government is organ-
Ized on the repeesentative system`
and i t the delegate system is but a re
vflexof • it.' A convention composed
of delegates each One of 'whom' rep-re

The .Republi&ins of Philadelphin
I'made all their 'nominations underit
in 1859 and-1860, eitendingthe sys
tem to Senatofial -districts in select,
ing delegates to' the- State' Conven
tion, and to the Nationttl Convention.
•In 1859 the Writer was nominated
,there for City -1 Council, in a .very`
sharp:Contest in the 10th ward, by a
majority of one vote over Winmait
S. PIERCE, now one of the Judges of
'the Common Pleas Court. Informa
tion' which subsequently camp to* our
knowledge, satisfied us that at least
one fourth of the Vote• east for our
ticket was fiaudulent,- and a still
greeter number of bogus votes were
polled for the other.- In 11860 we
were made a candidate for delegate ,
to the Republican National C'onven
tion at Chicago, which nominated'
LINCOLN. Aa'we carried every ward
in the second Congressional district,
it was not convenient to count us
out, as was• intend , we ;were
well satisfied.thai at least tivo of
?sr three • colieagnes/were counted
in. The Crawford county system
was abandoned'that year in Philadel
phiqi and nobody desires to return
-to it. Of comae the 'delegate sys
'tem there iss - a faice, and the mimina
lions are frequently fraudulent but
it is linter than the direct vote.
The -4 tweet will find that the
Crawford county system is not the
elixer it thinks it is. .

•on the nomination of Wade . to be.
Collector of Internal Revenue , in
Georgia, Senator Gordon had :made
a speech against - tile confirmation of
Wade and Seuatdr, Thurman

that was being pursued with nomina

discussion of two or • three hours in
length was to be had on the political
relations of the North and Soutb,the
two parties, the President and every
sliiing else having . any bering en the
subject, there was little hope of ac
complishing anything in the last
hours before the long recess.• At
this point Sepator Gordon rose to
speak again and there, came from
the RSpubliean side cries of " Go on,
go on witi the calendar ! Let's have
the vote 1" The words " flo on" : came
from several Senritins, among them .
Hamlin. Mitchell andCtiikling.,
This gieatly 'incensed the "..iluick

cried .out in an impatient tone: '" The

Mr: Gordon then repeated that the

WASHINGTON, Dec. 15.---The strug
gle to pass the, resolution apthoriz
ing the 'House committees to investi=
gate tl3e variouli departments of the
Government, with authority: to send
for persons 'and -papers and to it
during the recess, was resumed to.
'day, and continued until late in. the
afternoon, wheia\it was abandoned.
.The author of thiaresolution is. Mr.
GlOveNcif Missouri, who will be re
membered as the Chairmiuy of the
Real,nitate Pool Committee in 'the
Forty-fourth Congress, and the man
'who purchased from a junk detder in
New York a . great, qOantity, of
vate telegraph dispatches which had.
I been sold as waste paper by one of
the telegraph companies, and which
Mr. Glover used ics,the basis.,of all
imanner of investigations. 110: Glo
ver is anxious to get the authority
and power of the House to again
"cast his drag-net: over the country,
and violate publie decency and pri
vate rights, wider the pretense of in
vestigating something. The purpose
of tbe resolution as reported by Mr.
Wood, according to its language, is
1 to - useertain what change and reftir
motion can be made, so as to pro
\'mote the Integrity, economy, and efil
ciency of the public 'Service; but e the
real puipose is revealed by they fait
:thatl authorizes the several eamini* ,.

of,said cominittees mar deem fleece-
Airy for its Ti\guidanee. The Re
publicans mak no objection to. the
lOPektinvestig tion of all depart
' 'iambi of the Dovernment, but they
insist, in view ,of the conduct of Mr.
711over's committee lo the last Con-
Igrese, that theCountryshall .not 'be
again c onverted into a hoge fishing
pond, through which men like Mr.
tHRWS' may drag in the 'hope that
home scandal may be brought to . the
siiihiii; Mr. - Wood' was repatedly
f informed by the Republicans that if
I be would so modify his- resol4ion,
cis lio direct the committees -to make
investigations, under 'ordinary rule
and strike out the clause authorizing \
/ them to sit during the receis, there
would be I no objection to,its passage.
The Democrat°, hosfever, would not
agree to any modifiCation, and the
Republicans resorted to dilatory mo--
Mona to defeat it. .It was finally
agreed that the resolution should _go
over until January 10th, , and come
up upon that day as unfinished hue&

party, were satisfied with the sitUation,
wanted things to remain just about is
they were, and argued that as the balks.,
bad continually Settled -towards tbe.c.rtli.
it was likely to arrive their plenty sit Son
enough by the natural leakage of the gas.
There were a considerable number on
board, and among them some prominent
men like Pendleton and Ewing, who were
determined to atop its downward tenden
cy and have the balloon go higher ; they
said ," print enough greenbacks .to piy
the. national debt,' principal and interest,
the people's money is Rood enough for
the bond holders, what is sauce fur the
goose, should be sauce for the gander:"
Of course that was figurative language = ,
which simply- Meant when interpreted,
'4 throw out all the ballast, and let the
ratreat gas bag go up to the Old Hobby
• , At length a'ter a great deal of cord 3-
versy it was agreed by the represent -.,
tives of algparties,,and the agreement w is
ratified in the most solemn manner, th t
the balloon should, reach the solid"ground
on the let day of Jan. 1879, that the na
tional banks already organized, and all'to
be organized, should be allowed to throw
out their notes (which Were used as bel
'ut);le nelimitedquantities at their own
deseretion, -by depositing with the Secre
tary of the Treasury the proper securities
'authorized by la*, and that for every 100
lbs. of ballast thus thrown out, the Sec
isas,reqUired to open the value and '
let gas to the amount of 80 llia. in lifting
power escape, and these operations might
continue mail there remained 300,000,009
Ho, of gas,in the balloon, and no'roore.
The softloney party thought they had
islitainetrati`advantage in the bargain as 1
the time• fixed to go down was a goad
while in the future, and if the national
banks did not see fit to throw out any 1.r.1-
last, then no gas could be let out of the
balloon. and consequently would be likelyl
to maintain the poeition it then occupied.
It was known that in Ordinary times-the
throwing Out of ballast was an agreeable
and profitable exercise for bankers: which
they delighted in, and no doubts were en
tertained by the soft money party that
the banks would. avail themselves, of the
privilege t ey granted of throwing out
ballast by the arms-full and as. by Mel
arrangement, the lifting power of-the gas l
to be let out by the Serretary Wah -to be
twenty percent less than the weight of
the 'ballast thrown oat by the baiels, tfity, ,
confidently expected that the balloon ile
stead of going' down, would go hp, mill '
sonic of. thorn had hopes that instead iii'
reaching the earth on the Ist'' IX Jarti'l
1879 the balloon at that time would be ale '
high that naliving soul' could tell in what
directiba the earth lay. - In making-the
-agreenient there was one-point which the
soft.money party, leid_not duly cen aid ered.,
\ tinder a. previous contract called the tic--
tional bank , act still in force, the baitts
could If-they desired recover the ballast
had thrown out as it was of a fth 'II
e material and continued to float in t e
air Within,easy reach , and- by collects g
the same and returningsit to the Secrete ...,
withdrave,their securities .:. It was a.pe :.
liar property of this kind of ballast ti t
like feathers it would float in the air wh rr
thrown out, but when recovered and pa
ed into the SC-Cretary's desk it had app .-
ciable weight and would cause the 41-
loon to settle tOwards the ground. nr
a while, after the agreement."which" wits
celled , 'the Resumntion -act" was made,
its operation was Much what the soft
money party had -ontnected, the banks

contagious disease on board which hid

brat "The money panic," aretrifteiwards
"Hard times"—a disease which bankers
dread worse than small pox.—lbsreaeh
ed forth their bends and recov la great
deal more of the ballast than they- had
thrown out since the resumption agree
ment -bad been made. They called - this
operation -in their technical language
." withdrawing their eirculation,"-or "lost
mining their capital," and their object
was to fortify themselves against the at
tacks et the disease and to lessen *their
taxes.. Asa consequence of their action,
and some atmospherici changes which
took place, the-balloon started down and
has continued. Ls downward course until
wecan now almont make a safe jump to

soft money party are determined to vio

of silver which had7been hidden until it
was hankered and had lost a portion of its
value, they intend" to send the balloon
