Titillepublican clerks in the Depart

organizing - the. State associations- which
formerly existed,.and which were broken
up in deference to the President's civil
Service views. It is stated that the re
stiscitation of -these organizations is ob
jectionable to the President, principallyt,
from the well-ascertained fact that they
were used by certain parties as a means
of advancing their personal Interests, and
controlling or influencing appointments.
If such was the case, and it appears to be
a well-established fact, it is a s well that
they • should not bo organized.
There is no objection made to the clerks
and others in the department's being
active in promoting the success of the
Republican party, provided they do not
neglect their official duties. ; •

session at Chicago, with anything but
satisfactory results as regards the confir

THE Riot Investigating Committee
held a meeting in Harrisburg on Friday,
to consider the matter of prosecuting the

in connection with the attempted passage
of the Pittsburg Riot bill. The sentiment
developed, saps the despatch, was unani
mously favorable to an early prosdcution,
and warrants will be issued for the arrest
of the accused in: time for trial at the
August term of Court. Why this has
not been done before . .this, is one of the
things "no fellow can find out." The'
accused arc anx,usly expecting to he

reason, the public prosecutor fails to have

report's have been received from. 121 out.

public money passing through' the hands
of the 121 collectors whose accounts have
been 'examined has been lost or unaccount

during the year. This remarkable ex

evidence that could be given of the

Junos: Wtslowsrtn of the Supreme .
Court is rusticating in Northern New

"that the action of the Democratic party
during the extra session displayed more
insanity than he had every knovin in
the history of any political organization

that the course of the Democratic repre

known in ante-bellum days" etc. The

was sufficiently recovered, some notice
should be taken of Bach a remarkable

The work of wiping out the Repub
lican party in the South having. been
accomplished, the actors in the hu
mane and liberal movement, in some
instances, not being exactly satisfied
with the resultS personally, have dared
to object to the action of the Democ-,
racy, and to offer themselves. as can-
didates without the sanction of a
Democratic caucus. Of course, such
treason could not be toletated. There
is a short and effectual way of , dis
posing of such as rebel , against the
dictation of the heroes of the "Yazoo
plan." It only aggravates the offense
that the recusant should have been
active and efficient in the work of
reformation which has been so gen
erouslkand-effeetively consummated•
In ,Vapo.cOunty, Mississippi, the
work of reforination has been thor
ougl4 done. In IH7l'the Republican
vote was 2,9611 . 3 the Democratic vote,
997. But VI 1 , 575, the Democratic
missionaries took the matter in hand,
find so earnest and etrective was their
that there were but 7 Repub
lican votes cast in the county, while
the Democratic vote has wonderfull
ricreased to 4,051! Of course, this
surprising change was only accom
plished by hard work. And the most
active in the ranks tif the regenera
tors was Capt. If. M. DIXON. So
prominent were his services, and so
highly were they appreciated by his
fellow-Democrats, that they presented
him with a massive silver pitcher as.
a mark of their grateful esteem.
Capt. Dixon very properly consid-i
ered that--134 . s i serVices in the cause of
Democractitled him to recogni-'
-Lion and re-rd in the shape of office.
So he asked the Democratic Conven
tion to nominate hint for the office of
Sheriff. This the Conception failed
to do, and Cbptain DIXON set - himself
ub as an Independent-Democratic
candidate. Now if a Republican can
be squelched, so can als'o a rebellious
Democrat. Accordingly; the bull
dozers asSeriibled and notified Capt.
DIXON to-retire from the canvass as
a candidate or leave the county. Ile
very sensibly chose the former alter
native, having a very proper estimate
of the faithfulness with which the
bulldozing edicts were executed.
Judge :Moan's, late Attoyney Gen
eral of the State, was addressed by
some of the citizens of Yazoo county
who had favored the Democratic
candidate, asking his advice under
the circumstances. The Judge's re
ply is remarkable, as admittintkvery
thing which has ever been alleged in'
regard to the illegal, revolutionary
and brutal means employed in wiping
out the Republican vote. The Judge
says that the remedy for the evils
complained o'f'Ouglit to be abundant
and 'speedy. But under existing cir
cumstances it is painful to have to
admit that 'practically the laws are
a dead letter and the judiciary a dead
system, because fraud and violence
in elections and fraud and perjury in
covering them up have in too man
instances been the chief instrume. -
talities by which . public officers gOt
into power, and by which they expect
to retain it. After this candid con
fession and arraignment of the Dem
ocratic party, the Judge asks the fol
lowing question :
" Admitting for ilo;. present that violence and
crime were the apptopriate remedies for the extra
ordinary evils u ith which ae bare been occasin
ally beset. still the miesti, n Is forced open us: Are
those Astra mentalities to be the ordinary and per
manent policy of Mississippi throng!, all time? Li
there to be no time In our history when these appli
ances shall be abandoned '.+'•
The "appliances " which arc here
mentioned are the shot-gun' and the
revolver, the midnight meetings of
masked men, the shooting of negroes,
and the cruel and barbarous treat-
Meat of white Republicans. Is it
expected that " appliances " which
have been so effectual in securing
_undisputed Democratic rule likely to
be. abandoned by the men who have
demonstrated the efficacy of such
" instrumentalities ?" Yet, there are
honest Demobrats in the North who
have been incredulous as to the well
authenticated evidence in
the outrages upon Southern Republi
cans and the ; " appliances." by'which
the Republican vote was "wiped out."
The frank admission of Judge Men
ai:4, and his lament that the bull
dozing tactics which made a " Solid
South " should be perpetuated, ought
to satisty every intelligent and can

of the reports which have reached us

THE public debt statement for the

of the payment cruarrmages of pen

that the payment of the large amount
of pension arrearages would increase
the principal of the national debt. to
some extent.
THE resumptinn of specie payments
having now been established, there
is a steady and solid movement
towards the. restoration of business
and industrial prosperity. The Dem
ocratie leaders tried with all their
might to defeat this restoration, but
the persistency and courage of Secre

Republican Congressmen, triumph

success, thus recovering the ground
lost there last year. During his so- .

ALL accounts agree that the com

anything that has yet taken place in ,

_yellow fever continues to
spread in Memphis, but so slowly as
scarcely to amount to an epidemic.

that city of other diseases than of
yellow fever. -

PHILADELPHIA, August /I, 1879
The Pennsylvania Railroad . Company
has been for some time past, quietly buy
ing the properties bounded by the Schuyl
kill river and Fifteenth street, and, Mar
ket and Filbert streets, for the purpose of
transferring their depot, on the" principle
that railway etimpanies must seek the
centres of travel. In foreign countries, in
all the great cities, the 'depots of the prin.,
ciple railways are located the very
heart of the town, often at an enormous
expense. The Pennsylvania Directors
recognizing the advantages of a central
depot, have settled the details of a plan
_by which the terminus of their road is to
be transferred to Fifteenth and Market
streets. The, project inclirdes a double
track iron bridge across the Schuylkill,
on the line of Filbert street, with nine
tracks thence to Fifteenth street, brought.
in on a grade about seventeen feet above
the street grade. Passengers will be land
ed on the second floor of the depot, while
the freight cars will be lowered to the
street level by hydraulic apparatus arid
shifted by transfer tables as may be de
sired. • The whole costFof this great im.
provement will probably be from two to
three millions of dollars. •
The Reading Comi4ny is pushing its
connection for the North Pennsylvania at
Ninth and Green streets as rapidly as
possible, and in a very short , time will
have a central terminus. Surveys are be
ing made for another road to Bethlehem,
to afford an independent outlet for the
Lehigh Valley. Such la road will soon be
necessary, as the Lehigh Cannot afford to
be at the mercy of the Reading.

The notice to take down the Exhibition
bitikiing has caused considerable corer
meat, which is universally adverse to the
proposition, It would stern as if there
should be public enterprise enough in this
city of half a million - inhabitants, notonly
to preserve this memento of 'the great ex
hibition, but also to appreciate and second
the efforts of the management to keep up
'an exhibition worthy pf the notice of the
public. Dr. Paxson, President -of the
Permanent Exhibition Company, states
that the Board of Managers are about to
prepare an addrras to the Park Commis
sion, soaring that not only shall the Com
missim's notice to the Exhibition manag
ers be withdraw; but also that the clause
relating to the , vacating of the premises
shall be rescinded. Dr. Paxson says that
unless this is done it will be useless to go
ahead with the Exhibition. •

The city of magnificent distances, it
may be said, is deserted. For many years
past there has perhaps not been so great
a flight of people as there has been during
the present season. An unusual desire
from some cause appears to prevail among
all classes to get away, and consequently
the flight has been steady and strong, giv
ing the city a somewhat deserted and
lonely appearance. But, judging from
the great numbers that ate reported as
being present at the fashionable resorts
throughout the country, the mania, if it
may be called such, is evidently not con
fined tolhis locality alone. That Ruch a
feeling should exist among the denizens
of brick and mortar is not at all to be
wondered at. With the •themometer

the shade; and the perspiration streaming
from every pore, an escape to the cool
Breeze of the mountain or a dip in old
ocean's wave is an enjoyment that is most
fully telt and appreciated.
Judging from the various routes that are
taken by the many, we suppose that the
degrees of enjoyment as well as the means
to enjoy them are just as varied. Tbe.
diplomat and the high official, it would
seem, prefer to rest their tired limbs'and .
'wearied brains in secluded and far-off
places, wherO the chinch is at rest and the

drawer of water—must be content in a.
less aristocratic way to rest his aching
anatomy in twenty-five cent rides amid
every-day scenes on the placid waters of
the peaceful Potomac. •
. In the rise and progress of the nation's
Capital, it now for the first time in its
history can. boast of -having two grand
public gardens—one delightful for its
flowery promenades, its music and danc
ing, its excellent refreshments and charm
ing opportunities presented for the enjoy
ment of those little tete7d-teles supposed
to be confined exclusively to romantic
youth ; the other equally. as delightful for
its brilliant illuminations, its cool breezes
and voluptuous music, and where in hap

era of the great German beverage—lager

their capacity for hording the same.
"To what base uses do we come at
last." The old Seaton mansion, known
and noted as being - once the elegant home
of the editor of theNationol Intelligencer,
where in the days of the past were wont
to assemble Presidenta and Senators, dip
lomats and the prominent men of the na
tion to partake of the well-knowif hospi
tality of its host, has, with all of. its fine
surroundings, finally sunk into a• music
hall and beer-garden. The great halls
and vestibules, the verandas 'and grand
stairways once fragrant with the bloom
ing, orange and the shadowy olean der, are
nowifilled with the aroma of limburger
and lager, and in the grateful shades of
its luxurious gardens, where with liberal
hands were once . dispersed *tines and
costly viands, is now found sairsage and
pretzels and five-cent schooneis of beer.
Among the many changes brought about
by the whirligig of time, this, from its
historical associations, appears to be one.
of more than ordinary interest. But its
glory has departed. The old walls that
once re-echoed with the after-41inner
speeches of Clay, Webster, Calhoun, and
many others prominent in the history of
our country, now resound with the blare
of trombone and the blatant demands for
more beer.
The old saying, " that few die and none
resign," is not altogether verified in the
voluntary retirement of Judge Tabor, who
for the past sixtPen years has occupied
the position of Fourth Auditor of the
Treasury Department:" Having arrived
at that period of life when rest and work
of a less labtrious character is demanded,
he lays down the burdens and cares of
office to younger and stronger hands.
While he has been a faithfitland efficient
officer, he does not appear to be one of
those who think that their services cannot
be dispensed with, that his retirement
will in any way stop the wheels of gov
ernment, or that his place cannot be sup
plied. .
The columns of the local press still con
tinue to teem with discussions upon the
subject of the removal of disabled soldiers
from positions at the Capitol, and the ap
pointment of ex-Confederates in • their
places. The fact of having become dis
abled in the service of their country Is no
longer a favorable argument, and however
much may be said upon the subject, it is
plainly patent that the Democracy are
fully determined upon no compromise on
that score. There has, upon the part of.
the Republican party; been extended for
years past a mistaken generosity- towards
their opponents, which it now appears
finds no reciprocation.. While Confeder
ates and Democrats are serenely reposing
upon soft places, the guillotine is per
forming active service upon the necks of
active Republicans and mutilated soldiers.
The fact of giving place to those who
have no interest M the success and main
tenance of Republicah principles: and
measures, is perhaps a matter of no very
great importance only so far as it gives

• With regard to the two vacant foreign
Minions, it Is reported that the President
has decided to fill them at an early date.
It is understood that bad ei-Senator Ram

As the election in the State of Maine
approaches, the contest appears to be
getting warm and bitter. hard or soft
money and the repeal of the Resumption
Act appear tube the issues between the
contending parties. ;The. recent speech
of Secretary Sherman to the people of
Maine ought to be a Sufficient answer to
the Greenbackers, inflationists and those
opposed to resumption. But whenever
Secretary Sherman has anything to say
in public-about the-accomplishment of re
sumption,it is the habit of the Democratic
press to exotiate and enlarge upon the
deplorable and unfortunate incidents
which through necessity accoMpanied the
act. They are, hOwever, careful to omit
all reference to the responsible causes
which led to these results. They forget
to say that resumption would not have
been necessary if . there had been no war,
and that the Democratic party - alone was
responsible roe that war. In the light of
these facts it appears that the Democracy,
and not Mr; Sherman nor the Resumption
act, is to be held to account for the mis
fortunes which befell the country during
the period of retraction—for the "wealthy
men reduced to beggary," for the honest
and industrious men degraded to tramp
life, for the many wrecked•families, for
toe h o mes blighted, fur the lives emMt
tered and fur the inercas.• of the inmates
of our alms-houses mad lunatic asylums,
as well as for the hundreds of thousands
of gallant men slain in battle, and the
millions upon milliong of treasure spent
in sectional strife. Every line written or
word spoken in detraction of resumption
reveals these facts, and despite Democrat
ic: perversion of them, serve as. an admo
.nition and warning against reposing any
further trust or confidence in that party,
