PUBLIC SALARIES.
The servants of the State with us are by
( means so well remunerated as persons per
> mlng similar-duties are In England. l It has
c en said, arid With truth, thrit England is the
c sbsorved .country ,in Europe, [ simply be
a iso slio gives the most liberal payment to
c r publlcmen. Inmahy cases she over-pays,
rt. oven that is better than anunwiso cco
cmy, which is the dearest in the end. 'We
r! by no means enamored of British institu

ii d doos not lose, by liberality. Nor need
is country shrink from profiting by tho
:Sson.-
• set us get to facts; andtmcing the difference j
be ween the English practico and our own, to
sb >w how it is better to err. on the side of
lib iral than parsimonious - payment of tho un
do aal servants. The’Brcsid6ht, Vico Prosi
de it, and the seven member., bf tho Cabinet
at 'Washington, receive among' them'some
$Bl,OOO, while the with the other
■pri acipal.,officials, who constitute the British
'Gt vemmentj annually receive salaries to the
an ount of at least $295,000.. But, to a great j
M ion, ls tlio difference be
iw en tho large [iay-in one case and the com-1
pa: atlvely small 'compensation in the other I
' There ihe'pppiilallbn'ls as large as It, is in ]

“i ttluo received*’ for, liberality, in neither
idoi ntty/by the way, does-a high official save
me aey out of His‘salary/,-The position he
dip is demands such a large expenditure, that/

’' uL ‘ t policy is liberality. To secure the' best

- grity, their intelligence, their 1 intellect to
nationabjsorvico.' !
! 'ne peculiar point with us, and wholly at
: ance, not onlyjvlth tho. highest, but with
: genernl -Enropcan- practice; is the Insta
i y of'oltr'official tenure'. 1 -Across tho At
ie, for example, the general practice is, for
: an.to ontpr the public service at an early
:, with appertained ability and edneation for
: department in which bo is placed, and,
imencing at a low salary(usually $4OO a
r for a lad of eighteen,/gradually to rise, to
mced pay and position, by seniority, length
ervico, and acknowledged merit. Thus, in
eral, a Vfbllfcon'ducted person ■ who has on
df the service early, works his way forward
imo and merit, and may expect to find him
in middle-life with from $3,000 to $lO,OOO a
•, and the certainty, altera fixed poflcid of
ice, (and earlier should healtli foil,) of being
to retire on a pension equal to two-thirds
he highest, rate of salaryhe has ever, re,
' ed. AU .Govercment appolntments in Eng
i. (with the lexception of the few removals
I lolitical heads of departments, on a change
! Ilnlstry) are' hsariablyfor life, and pre
: lents and promotions) principally made by
ority, are rarely influenced by the inter
nee of patronage or party. The consc
: ice is, that as an official there enters hjs
ution as a permanency, with increasing
i ry and position, the instances where be Is

of contrast, a comparative view of tho

leading functionaries who constitute .what
