TnE government prosecuting officers
who have been preparing the information

of the degrees of fraud alleged to have
been committed ; the - prosecuting officers,
however decline to give the names of any
of the parties for whom they' will ask in:

the Army of Northern Virginia, at New

speech, in which he said the cause was
not lost but only sleeping. Referring to

in a more satisfactory showing than in
any previous year. tie considers thelawt
on the subject as nearly perfect as the;
can well be made. Six new armories
were erected during the year, making a
total of fifty-three_companies now virtual

no recruit should be remit ed who cannot
well afford the time for attendance at
drills, encampments and inspections. This
is well enough in theory, but gentlemen

TEAT sterling 'Republican sheet, the
Lebanon Courier, expresses the Wowing
opinion which we most bey ily endorse :
"No Udell service" that shall create an
office-holding class that will ripen into an
aristocracy with a contempt for the peo
pie, will be the 'verdict in America, as the
subject becomes more discussed and bet•
ter understood. Any proper reform to
improve the integrity and responsibility
of office-holders is commendable, but the
idea drifting on in this proposed reform
into the aristocratic policy of England - is
"a horse.lof another color," and will not
- be-tolerated - by the American people.

ONE of the most remarkable instances
of cool and deliberate impudence on re
cor: says the North American ha's been
shown by the widow of, a Senator from
Tennessee, whose terra, would have ex
pired in 1865 but who was expelled for
treason to the country in 1561, in a pre
sentation of a claim for his salary for-the
*hole of the term to which be had been
elected. As might reasonably no pre
sumed;the claim was promptly rejected,
and the indignant widow and her friend%
are no doubt taking consolation from
their defeat in composing woruy anathe
mas to bi;:burled against the - officers of a
perfidious And 'ungrateful country.
IF the bill settling upon Mrs. GARFIELD
a pension of 0.000 a year for life, be
comes a law, says the Philadelphia Worth
merka n, it will be impossible for
o:'e tc charge with having treat:.
ed the late President's widow with illiber
ality. It has already notified its inten
tion of assuming all the expense connect
ed with Mr. GARFIELD'S Sickness, and to
add the pension suggested to all that has
been previously given will be a generous
act.. How far Congress can properly take
cognizance of the contributions of which
Mrs. GARFIELD has been the recipient is,
bowev i rr, a questiOn as to which there is
room for some difference of opinion.
EnvilE there seems to be no doubt that
fi f INCOLN 4 owing to physical infirmi-
ty, Akin
. straP.ened circumstances, and
that tlia l p nsion voted her by Congress
some yetirs ago is insufficient to st.pily
her reasonable and necessary wants, the
bil. iucti.asing her pension $5,000 a year,
and giving her the sum $15,000 in cash,
which has been unanimously adopted ny
the Sena'e Committee'bn Pension , , is a
proi , r one, and will bardli meet with
any substantial opposition/ In view of
his services to the Nation, the Republic
cannot do too much for President LIN
COLN'S widow. It is not enough that she
should have the means of subsistence.
She should have the wherewithal to live
in comfort, and to satisfy ad the many
needs incidental to her advancing ytars
and enfeebled condition.
- Readers of newspapers may have
noticed Of late that certain parties j
to political controversy are in a man
ner stiff red up. There has ,been con
siderable music in the air, in fact,•
the New , ‘York Herald having sound
ed the' key-note through one of its
correspondents, and the Tribune hav
ing chimed in rather discordintly
than otherwise. The beginning of
this fracas was the publication of a
private despatch- from Mr. W rrr.-
object of the dispatch 'was _both , I rd
question to influence Presider,'
FULD to stand firm in his removal of
Collector Merritt and the notninati , m
of Judge llonEtrrsos for the Collec,
for of the Port of New York. The
terms of the despatch are suet; ,that
there j ean be no doubt of Mr. REID!Js
The publication of this I 16patFli in
the Herald was 'made the basis of a i
charge of conspiracy - oetween Mr. 1
REin,and a few others Navin t for its
object he humiliation' of Mr?: CoNx-
LING. That charge may he dismissed
as of ti : consequence. There' is no I
proof - Offered, beyond the despatch
itself, that such a conspiracy tvasen-
kered'irfto. Mr. REID published the
despatch-in the Tritiume with caustic
comments. • He avowed the author
ship of the despatch and declared
that he would stand by it to the end.
But as to the morals involved in the
publication of the private letter Mr.
REID has something to say and . says:
it ' most outspokenly. We •asSune
that nobody writes a private and
confidential letter expecting it to be
published in public prints. There is '
what. may . be called an i nalienable
property in a man's private corres
.the title to which rests in
the Writer. So we may as Well admit
that to deprive any one Of such prop-
erty by making it public property is
neither good manners nor goad mor
als. But when such a breach of
manners and morals occurs it is no
questionably- true that the peculiar
Property right of the author tertni 7.
natis and cannot be reclaimed. -I "
What does the despatch show ? It
shows. that Mr. REID, exercising an
undeniable, right, did endeavor to in
fluence the President to insist upon
the' nomination of Judge RODERTSON .
It also shows that the disagreenient
between the President and the Stal
warts was probably widened by the
counsel -of individuals who do not
claim to be Stalwarts. It may. be
said to show what everybody ought
to have known-tthat the course of
the President was not, wholly deter
mined by liis owit • will. In other
words, certain gentlemen who think
a P i resident ought not to be clay . in.
the hands of the potter did undertake
to mould
_and shape the policy of the
late President. We assume that such
endeavor is entirely legitimate, if uti
lertaken With goodintentions. But
we hold that a mans who essays to
shape the policy-of an administration
is estopped from abusing others who
essay the same thing under similar
Now if Mr. REID is willing to stand
by his.despatch .we should like to
know whyhe is so bitter in . his de 7
nunciaticd of the exposure. That he
feels outraged, by the publication is
natural. But Im o la not-the only man
whose-confidence has been betrayed.
Such exposures are rather common;

suppose that this nccounts for the
excessive indignatioi displayed by
Mr. REID. After baring denounced

of those tactics.,
Well, it is not pleag . ant.. _lt has
been charged that President ARTHUR
is under the influence of Gen. GD.,NT
and that the Stalwarts are .shaping
ARTERTICS policy. Is this wrong?
If it he wrong for Gen. in

whole matter in. controversy. For

to us, is the situation - sp far as Mr.
RE Dis concerned. It is certainly
not a pleasant situation. he is

better be dropped. The • despatch is

The current cif serious, thoughtful pub
lic opinion is still drifting, as it set out
that President Arthur Will wake one of
the hest Presidents the -White House has
seen. It is not expected that Mr. Fre
lingbulsou will dirept the State Depart-
ment,as a "Premier," or attempt to direct
it in the interesteitber of himself or Pres
ident Arthur for thei succession, 0, that
Judge Fo'ger will seek to tura tbeerreas
I, ry Drylament into a political machine
or- his own future benefit. The - lade-
pendent and even the opposition journals
cancede that the President has thus far
displayed tact, earnestness, and a compre
hensive grasp of -national questions.. In

While the- above - will in some measure
serve to show 'that Mr. Jaciwin has not
ueeraltogether idle, it comprehends but
a 'small part of the work and duties in
eumberit upon his position. It is.a fact"
which is perhaps not very generally un
derstood, that the labor attending the
duties o: a legislator since the close of the;
war has been very . materially increased.
Aside froni . legislative work, the passage
of tbe' late PeosiOn Act, the Arrests of
Pay and Bounty Sets, has given rise to
innumerable claims from those"whoserved
in the late rebellion, all of which to a
very great extent have• lciolced.after
by Congressmen. In this reSpect Mr.
Jadwin does not allow the claims which
are being constantly made upon hint to
accumulate unattended to.' .With. a due
regard to the interests of "his constitimicy
his personal attention is promptly given
to all claims and requests., So far it is
evid.n t- that the - people of the Fifteenth
District will have no just reason for cm;
plaint in any respect. " • •
The daily life of a Congressman, with . '
his duties properly dischatged, has of late
years become anything but a bed of roses.'
The days of idleness and elegant ease with
"eight dollars per day and roast beet"
_have passed away, and are reineixibered
only as among the things of the past.
The. gilded saloons of vice, such as flour
ished in' the good old days of Southern
rule and slavery, have - fallen into delay, ,
and' bunting the "tiger"' is no longer a
favorite pastime with Senators andmem
bers. - The hidden "jungle" that flashed
in brilliant splendor with its roulette and
far taoles, ifs grand suppers and other
allurements that servo to malte,v;-.:
tractive is deserted. The fashionable
belle and the elegant sport that feasted,
fattened and flourished on the products
of the awe have disappeared from fash
iOn's,eirclea. The balls of legislation no
longer resound with the oaths of lionora-
Wes filled with, cornjuio' o. iv bile they
danrishetA pistebt . and canes ad

- But with the rainy ehanges'brought
about by tbe whirligig of time, the bawl;
log house Cormorant or the Capital re-
Mains the same, exists as voracirms as
ever, and C.lngressmen are still considered
their legitimate'prey. Wbile all gOveri=
meat employes are considered as a matter
of course their victims, the Congressman
is regarded. as the goose that lays the
golden egg, and must consequently be en
snared. From Congressmen the boarding
house matron wins her seal•skin sacque,
ber diamonds and her daughters' trous
seau. While the government clerk who
eats at the table ivith the Washiagtonian
"to the manor born )1 pays twenty' per
cent. more for his meals, the Congress
man is Ina& to go twenty per cent. high

fifty dollars per month, the Id. C. must
fork over from fifry to two I , ntuired dol
