At'O. ry - y4.14t ti :IL' NO PEACE WITF. CORRUPIiON. Ey his frank remonstrance against the continuance of the railway-subsidizing pol l.cy, General GRAIiT has exposed hiliself, in some quarters, to an unfriendly criticism. He is arraigned as manifesting a disposition to dictate to Congress—and that. too, even in advance of his own induction to the i'res ideocy. This socknation is but one of; the proofs that, in daring to express his Mean- Vto a system Of expenditure utterly inad tnissible in the present condition of the Treasury, he has made a bold, square issue 'with the corrupt "rings" which envelope the government I As a citizen, independent of his political destiny, 'General Giu has the same right as other citizens, to hold and'express an opinion! upon questions of paramount public importance—the same right as this journal exercised in the decided opposition which it expressed, months ago, to the granting of the kmmense subsidies for which applica tions were then, as they are , still, pending upon the tables and in the lobbies of Con gress. Mut General GRANT is something more than a private citizen.. • He has been selected to be charged with the administration of the Government, and h will soon be clothed with all the responsibility therefor. Sixty days hence, he enters office and meets, at 'the 'same time, a new 'Congress. It is not what the latter body may do, , but what the present Congress may permit, which is to embarrass his administration. If he sees, as all the world else sees, that economy, re trenchment, the reduction of the public Alebt and the diminution of the public bur thens of taxation 'ars to be rendered-clear impossibilities throughout hie term of office, by the improvident or corrupt extravagance of members now, in pledging the public faith for hundreds of millions of dollars in addition to present engagements. it is his duty to say just what he is reported to have said. Speaking of the schemes pending at Washington, to deplete the Treasury, of which railways, steamship-liJes and ship canals are most prominently attracting pub- I lie attention now, he denounced the whole business as a public robbery. He added: "I tun not in favor of directly or indirectly increasing the public debt while there is a party in the country that talks about repudi ation. Furthermore, it is absolutely neces sary that we should have the strictest hon esty in the collection of the revenue, and the strictest economy in all expenditures." No well-informed citizen who has ob served the course of events at Washington, needs to be told that the danger is urgent, that the duty is plain and most obliga tory, or that the President-elect has set forth his view of that duty, in the clearest and most significant language. He knows that the point of danger is between the present hour and the 4th of March, and that a timely protest now may avert the disastrous results which have been appre hended. If these declarations from Gen. Grumer should prove effectual, in restraining a few Republican members from uniting with the opposition to fasten new and enormous burthens upon the National back, he will `have achieved a new title to the public grat tude. We think his remonstrances will avail. Members who are disposed to sell oat to the "rings" which crowd the lobbies of Congress, will hesitate before committing themselves so directly against the policy to which our leader and our party stand equal /1y pledged. f - When GRANT implored an universal reign of peace, he would have included re lief from the vast swarm of public plunder ers who threaten us more and more With a national bankruptcy of honor and of mate rial resources alike. But the swarm has not been abated, and the result is,—what might be expected from 'ULYSSES S. GRANT,— was, instant, sharp and uncompromising. He has taken the war-path against the rail way ring, the. Indian ring, the whisky ring, the steamship and ship canal rings, and the half score of other combinations "to deplete the Treasury." And the man who doubts that he will push things, with thine enemies of the public credit, until they shall uncondi tiqually surrender, mistakes the Character of the President-elect, and of the great party which heartily approves his late declara tions, and will sustain him to The end. Weadd that General GRAFT, succeeding, as he will, , in this warfare against extrava gance, corruption, and official dishonesty— for that is what his recent declarationi mean—will confer upon his countrymen a service no less Important than that which has - already -crowned hit military genius. Restoring an honest efficiency in all depart ments of the public service, - enforcing upon the legislative branch, by his just influence and conspicuous example, the paramount obligations of personal purity and official econOmy, driving out from the precincts of the Capitol and of the departments the horde of ipeculators and, corruptionists who have long driven tliere their shamefully profitable traffic in official honor,-.4n this way, Presi dent GRANT will fight and win a more criti cal campaign than either 4 of the four which closed at Appomatox. The New York Tiffin falsely attributes *e high price of coal during the last two months to the operation of the tariff. It ought to have reflected that the tariff was precisely now last summer and spring, sand all last year, now, and yet during those periods the price of coal was so low as to yield little or no profit. If the tariff causes: tho high price now, it must have caused the low prices then; which is sufficient to show that a fallacy lurks some where in the reasoning pursued. The fact is, no body was taken more by surprise by the advance of coal than the managers of the prittcipin companies engaged Inm/fling; `transporting and selling that . article. , Last spring all those companies, throughout the anthracite districts, made contracts foi de livery running to the last day ofNovember. , , These contracts, or course, were predicated on the' prices ruling in the spring,. ji/gch', were ruinously. , lowl for the : littidneem_ Most of the ' cosappmesi up` Sethaissiday or t., e ' ~, ' 1 INEMBEIM METROPOLITAN IGNORANCE. - PITrSBURGB. - GitiEtTik6NDAY, DECF I :MBFR \ 2B, 1868. November, had done little' or nothing 'be yond filling contract engagements. The advance in September took them completely by surprise, and Inured exclusively to the benefit of retail dealers, who had bought in the spring. Nor was this the only bad luck that fell upon the companies when coal went up, the miners advanced proportion ately their wages, though their employers were stilleonstrained to go on delivering at the former low rates. How was the advance brought about! In the spring and early part of summer, a reduction of wages to match the diminished rates for coal, brought on extensive strikes, in most of the anthracite districts, This tended naturally to produce &short supply. Many operators perceiving there was no money in the trade, as matters stood, slack ened business, or ceased entirely. The great companies inereased.their product, by reason of arrangements previously made, in anticipation of a larger demand; but they did not.cover the deficiency in other quar. ters,nor the general increase of consumption. The laws of trade, under these circum stances, could do nothing but force prices up. The Times, in its assault Upon the tariff, in quest of cheap coal,. alleged that the duty was laid to benefit a few Pennsylvania companies. In reply, the Tribune, with an air amazingly self-complacent, inquired if Cumberland was not in Maryland? We do riot know how it is, but that journal always blinders when it makes an allusion, direct or indirect, to this Commonwealth, Cum berland is in Maryland; but very little of the coal marketed in New York is sent from that region. Even a large part, if not the greater part of the bituminous coal used in New York and vicinity, in the manufacture of gas or other purposes, is sent from Penn sylvania, much of it from our adjoining county of Westmoreland. RAILWAY COMPETITIONS AND COM PROMISES. The latest sensation in railway circles is the alleged compromise between the Erie and New York Centralmanagers, by which the two concerns are, hereafter to be mani pulated in harmony with each other. The arrangement is said to, include the with drawal of , all suits on both r sides, and to stipulate for an equal interest in the ques tions of Western connections, the Erie to be unobstructed in its scheme for a three railed track from New York to the Missis-, eippi. There •is no reason to dohbt that these rumors are substantially correct, and that the details, nerliaps tke text, of the agreement thus made, will in a very few days transpire publicly. .As between the two contracting parties, the general and probably Oorrect impression upon the public . mind' favors an Erie tri umph. Thie Company, with its corruption fond of so many millions of cash, how ac cumulated our well-informed readers . do not need to be reminded, has gone into the fight carrying entirely too many guns for Commodore V c ANDEEBILT to resist. Find ing his weakness, he has obtained a parley, and its result is not a temporary truce but a pacific compact which may or may not prove permanent. Other things being equal, we ;should re gard any agreement whatever, between the notoriously faithless managers' of those rallwity "interests," as no more than a hol low armistice, soon to be ended in hostilities more vigoronethan before. But, those men have discovered of late that it is for their advantage;naY, more, that it is a necessity for them to work together in a cordialArr.xl faith. It is only in this way 'that they call discover any method which • promises to meet successfully the menacing competition of the Pennsylyanla Central route. Here is supplied the condition which may render an alliance more lasting between the two Northern rivals of our line. But, neverthe less, we do not fear its ultimate success., No combinations, however gigantic, can t , triumph In the long run, when engineered by the Fiske, DRUMS, GOULDS and VAN DERUILTS, against the Pennsylvania Cen , tral interest, Under a management which is fortunate, over its rivals, in monopolizing the personal confidence of the people. ' The Erie and Central combination I is worth a good deal, as a highly compliment ary acknowledgment of the ability displayed by the Pennsylvania Central management.. Beyond this coraphment, we see in it noth ing to admire, and as friends of the Central route, very little to fear. A dispatch says: • The report of a oempromlse in the Erie war is pretty well confirmed today. The parties interested are generally reticent, but some of them adroit their belief that a compromise will be made. The terms of the compromise have been settled, but have not been put in documentary form. Sev eral injunctions now pending forbid any steps to stop legal proceedings, and to get around this the parties to suits will allow the cases to be called in court, but they Hill be postponed indefinitely. The state com pal Vanderbilt to return the shares mid a half million dollars obtained' of the, Erie road last spring, will be abandoned with. the rest. and nothing further undartidien. Vanderbilt became, frightened • whew . the Erie managers threatened to enjoin his: re cent dividend of 80 per cent. scrip, and his alarm led to the present settlement. 'lt' hi understood that the managere made no in, junction, and will withdraw the suits in' consideration of the withdrawal of lithos-, tility to the Erie road. Each road will be allowed to make unbroken communicition to the Mississippi. 'Unless some new, ob.:, stack) arises, the whole matter will be ar ranged by Wednesday of next week. It is rumored that Vanderbilt, Dreiv, Fisk and Belmont were closeted last night until a late hour, to arrange the details of the compro mise. GENERAL. Avstam, our Consul fieneral in Canada, attending recently a compli mentary dinner to a local railway magnate, was toasted as th e American-representatlye. His'speech in response said a vast number of good things, not the worst one being his neat 'little hit at the rebel sympathies of the English and Canadians, during , our Rebel lion. Said the General: • With regard to the principle of unity in America, you may remember that in Per, recent. successful Struggle to render our AO clety homogeneousmany of our demos) lzed friends throug hout theirorld were,apt, to think and to say - that. the • United States were liable to criticisaftite- two points; vie: at first that they were. not united, ands lat. terly that they Were hot-States.''HaPPUY l such criticisms`are noWdittof ftibkat • I sincerely hope thatit,VUL never neeeescrylo demotarataftolo/411/4Vg victoria or &blithe is indoor* Ple of owing • k.:,.14,1 1 • .t; ..#1 OLD HICKORY'S FIGI3RE-HEAD. \ Doxx PLATT tells, for the first time in print, a good story about President JACKSON and the removal of his wooden bust from its place as figure-head for the old ship Consti tution. The story was communicated to D. P. by Mr. Drcsaxsox, the first A. J's. Secretary of the Navy, who says: I remember the towering rage he exhibit ed when the - news reached us that the fig ure-head, carved in likeness of the Presi dent, had been sawed off by some miscreant hi the night. He directed -me to offer a large reward, and swore , he would hang the sceundrel, sooner or later. t i a "I o ered the reward, and one nigiit,some month a ft er, a man sent into my rooms word the wished to seeb me. I ordered him in, and a rough fellow made his ap pearance with a sack thrown over his shoul der, Without saying a word, he slung the sack rbund and emptied a huge wooden head on the floor. , "There it is, sir. Now bring out your bears," said the man. It was a grotesque looking thing, sawed off directly under the nose. "'There. it is, I say,' he went on, had nothin' agin old Hickory, but that head hadn't any business on the old Constitu tion. I'd saw it off agin.- Now do your damnedest' "I ordered the fellow under arrest, and taking my carnage, drove to the White House, with the,mutilated head in the sack. Giving lit to a servant, I appeared before the Presid nt, and without saying a word, sat the head, on Its nose, before him, on the ta ble. He stared at it, and then at me, and when I explained, he burst into a fit of un controllable laughter. "'Why that,' he cried, at length—'why that is the most infernal graven image I ever saw. The fellow did perfectly right. You've got him, you say; well, give him a kick and my compliments, and tell him to saw it off again.' Co*.nErirrsa, a few days since, upon senator MORTON'S resumption-bill, we oh-' jected, in decided terms, to that provision which postponed resumption by the Banks for eighteen months after specie.resumption shall be inaugurated at the Public Treasury. Mr. Treasurer Brim;En presents the same objection, in his recent WILDER letter. Re marking that "the banks should not be per mitted 'to remain in a state of suspension for a day, much less for months, ,as he pro poses, after resumption by. the Treasury," Mr. SPINNER proceeds : "Resumption, to be successful, must be simultaneous. The three estates—the peo ple, the banks, and the government—must stand together, or they will fall, and fall together. the banks will not be able to stand without the assistance of the govern ment; and the government, being the en dorser of the notes of the banks to thn amount of three hundred million dollars, would probably fall if the banks should fall; and the people, unfortunately for themselves, could but follow in the wake of the other two. "A simultaneous resumixion would not be unaptly represented by a tripod, or a three•sided pyramid, each side leaning against and at the same time supporting the other two sides."

WASHINGTON December 24.—Little else has been talke d in political circles here to-day than the general amnesty proclama tion. The many rebels in this city have been very jubilant, and think they see in the Prejident's last move a partial revival of the Lost Cause, which may regain life un der the lead of those who have been com pelled to make foreign climes their homes since the rebellion was crushed. An the other hand the Republicans are more stirred up than at any time since Johnson made the direct removal of Secretary Stanton from office. Much feeling is manifested, and Johnson is denounced in unmeasured terms. It is believed that as soon as Congress reas sembles that body will take some action in regard to the matter. General Grant sharis in the same opinion as the other Republi cans, that 'Johnson has taken an unwar ranto step, which should be severely re buked. .0 It is stated to-night on the streets that Breckenridge expects to pass through here in a few days on his way to Kentucky, and that he, with other rebel leaders, were con sulted by the President in regard to issuing the proclamation. Washington Gossip. The report of Special Revenue Commis sioner Wells is now being put in type, and will be ready to present `within two weeks. It discusses the tariff question at length, strongly opposing all plans which contem plate anything more than a tariff , for reve nue. There is a strong feeling in the Senate against confirming any more of Johnson's appointments, and it is said that an under standing exists among the Republican Sen ators that no further confirmations will be made until after the 4th of March. This will apply to those now before the Senate as well as to any that may come hereafter.
