to the fuiding and pasting of public
' \dOcumenti. Much of ' this, talk is yet
ore "extravagant" than anything that
- futs.been done, this year or jast,_in the
profuse outlay of public moneys. For in . -
, atatr.o, the accusation is made and reiter;
, „ate ‘ d,,t $37,Q4 0 were paid last Tear 'for
-folding and pasting. No evidence has
k, been adduced, and none will be, in sup

;Trion that none exists, It Is true :that
187,000 itrere'viadnfor -the miner efficerr -
of the last House, but it is not true that
all these officers were employed ha fold
ing - and pasting.' Economy is, doubtless,
a good thing in money matters; but when
these newspapers enforce it in their use
of truth, it cannot be commended. .
The last Legislature made places for too
many -subordinate officers. Nobody
maintains the contrary, or attempts to
justify what was done. At The opening
of the present session Mr. E. H. BAUM,
formerly for two or three years Clerk of
the House, put in an offer to do the fold
' ing and pasting for both Houses for
$9,000. This offer was not accepted, be
cause, among other reasons, of a law de
termining how many servants each House
should have, and fixing the salaries to be
paid them. Under this law folders and
pesters were appointed, the • total cost of
the service for both Houses mounting to
$ll,BOO, and no more. Why de certain
newspapers conceal this fact, and insist
that the 'cost runs up to forty and even
sixty thousand dollars ? .
Allevstardi,"in the House a %resolution .
Was passed .to increase the number of
folders and pesters by ten. • This would
make the whole number for the House,
treats, with one. Superintendent.
Now, our judgment is that these ten
suppkutentary men are not actually
needed. Any' newspaper publisher' or
taxer-binder would do-thework with con
aiderably less' than' the ten men orig
inally provided, for. But the members all
want their documents for mailing at
about the tame instant,- and 'want them
edelivered lute their own hands, so .that
there may be no mistake in regularly
'forwarding them. Hence, the demand
'for the additional number. A proposition
was, indeed, made in the House . for
twenty-seven additional folders and past
ers,,bat ithas not been adopted, and is not
likely to be.,
... Last year the total number of officers of
the House ran up to, 95 or 98; this year to
only 65 or 68; all at reduced salaries,
Making a clear saving of 00,000. It is
among the curiosities of politics that the
last Legislature, which was shamelessly
prodigal in 'the number and pay of its
servants, escaped without censure, while
the present bodies, aiming at considerable
retreuchments, and making decided pro.
gress therein, are assailed as Profuse be

This affords us no satisfectiou; but we
believe it to be the truth, and Bowe write.
Pennsylvania is slow. The Republican
party within its borders partakes largely
of this slowness. Eveo in Ohio our
fields made the lute prematurely and
were so badly beaten as to put off the dip
of final triumph. We are not disposed
to repeat that disaster here, if it can be
avoided. Let discussion proceed.
more earnest, searching and persuasive
the better, until discussion shall have done
its prdper work of informing the popular
mind, and then the sooner the case shall
be ordered to the ballot-box the wiser.
Itis certainly inconsistent for Republi
cans to force Impartial Suffrage, under
any understanding that phrase, upon
the Southern State% while they refuse to
accept it here at the North. We have re
peatedly ridged this point, hoping that a
sense of decency, if not,devotion toprin
ciple, would quicken the marchof the
Republicans of Pennsylvania towards
absolute political equality. The Post
does well in holding it up for renewed
Descending from the high grbund of
principle to the lower level of expediency,
it may be well to remark that the exten
sion of the suffrage to all male citizens,
irrespective of color, would give the Re
publicans a clear addition to their majority
of about eighteen thousand. A prejudice
must surely be powerful that withholds
a political party from doing an act of
justice to which it is strongly urged by
self-Interest. The Democrats do not hes
itate regularly to resort to fOrgery and
perjury to' increase the number of their
voters. If they could gain eighteen
thousand men they would give fraudulent
certificates of naturalization to the devil
and his imps. And yet the Republicans
of this State obstinately refuse to profit
by a principle just in itself, t rid which
they have helped to carry into affect at the
South. They refuse to do right, when
the doing of it would make them invin
cible evermore. It is not easy to see how
political blindness can he, made denser
Ou• judgment is that Congress ought
without delay to frame and submit for
ratification a Constitutional Amendment
going to the extent at least of conferring
the right of suffrage on all adult male cid
zens. Such an amendment would pretty
certainly be ratified by a sufficient num
ber of :the Legislatures, and thus the mat
ter, as far as the amendment should go, be
closed out. it is better this amendment
should be submitted at once, rather than
delayed for three or six months, and for
reasons which all public men cannot be
slow in cotnprehending. Will Congress

Everybody agrees that a very few, of
the large number of the pending applica
tions for public aid. may have substantial
merit. The difficulty is not in the dis
crimination, but in the fidelity and firm
ness with which that discrimination shall
be made. And so great is the public ap
prehension that Congress would err, (to
put it mildly) in its judgment upon the
yarione schemes now before it; that the
common consent of the people accepts
the exclusion of them all, as the best poi
icy for the p esen If, however, the re
cent agitati nof t is subject shall result
in barring ut tl indiscriminate crowd
who now swarm in the Capitol-lobbies,
even at the expense of limited concessions
to a few meritorious applications, the
people may, on the whole, have good
cause for congratulation.
That statesman will be wonderfully in
genious who shall discover any mode by
,which the public credit can be loaned to
private corporations, under any form of
guarantee upon either the principal or in
terest of their obligstious, with the moral
certainty of i an exemption f ron to any ulti
mate Habil ty therefor. Congressmen
will do well to remember that no , such
mode has yet been propounded. It might
be well to consider also that in these
transactions, 'the principal and interest
are practically synonymous terms, or, per:
haps, that of the two, the question of in
tenet has the most intrinsic importance.
Provide for that, and the principal takes
care of itself. If Congress forgets this
truth, the lobby are better posted up ;
and have recently modified their tactics
accordingly. Whatever may be done with
the public lands, we hope they will not
fall into the other trap which now stands
open and invitingly baited.
How would It do for Congress and the
lobby to change places ?
A BOARD OF PUBLIC CHARITIES
At the last session of the Legislature,
the Senate appointed a committee con
sisthig of WIL3IER WonTILINGTON, RUB-
IinLL Ennarr and G. P. Wrociattmax,
to inquirer into the propriety of establish
ing a Board of State Charities. pro
secuting this inquiry, these gentlemen
visited all the charitable and correctional
institutions supported in whole or in part
by State appropriation, \ and some that are
under municipal and private control.
The facts ascertained and the results ar
rived at, they embodied in a report which
makes a 'pamphlet of fifty pages, and
which is deserving of a much more ex
tended circulation than it will officially
After, reviewing the whole case, the
Committee recommend the enactment of
a law, a draft of which they submit,
creating a Board of Public Charities, to
consist of five members to be nkuninated
by the Goternor and approve d
i by the
Senate, to serve without compensation,
but to have their traveling expenses paid,
and to be authorized to[employ a Secre
tary and Agent. The duty of this Board
is to supervise all Inktituticis receiving
aid from the State, to visit, them all atleast
once in each year, to ascertain whether
the moneye appropriated to them re
spectively have been and are economical
ly and judiciously expended ; whether
the objects of the several institutions
an accomplished ; whether the laws in
relation to them are fully executed ;
and whether all parts of the State are
equally beaefltted by them.
The Board shall also require their Gen
eral Agent,,at least once in every two
years, to 'Wand examine into the condi
tion of each of the city and county jails or
prisons, and alms or poor houses.
Two of the fire Commissioners to be
residents of Philadelphia county and one
of Allegheny. A room to to be assigned
to the Board in the State CapitoL
That such a Board would , prove of
great utility, is evident to all men who
are even superficially acquainted with
the Institutions in question. It ought to
be created, and we doubt not this is the
view the Legislature will take.
THE ENGLISH SURRENDER.
On the 20th of August , 1865, the Brit
ish government denied its liabil ty for the
Alabama depredations and ab utely re

point to the arbitrament of foreign
State. Thus Emu. RUEISEIL 'wrote to
