self, the universal respect of all our well

doctrine was not broached until after the

is simply a remand of the Georgian peo

Will they not dare -at least one trial, to

does not always imply a dishonest mo

that an official may be vigilaz4 without

pugnacious ,obstinacy, critical without
beccaning a blackguard, and even a mem
ber of Congress without, of necessity, for
feiting all the proper attributes. of .the
well-bred man! • .
Daring of this sort, in public life now
a-day s. certainly implies the highest order
of moral courage. Who will be the
brave man to inangtrate it at the Federal
Capitol? We dare to throw down that
gauntlet at the feet of honorable Repre

Every week in the year, almost every
day in the week, we have predictions
from the newspaper press, from writers
and thinkers on political economy, and
from all classes throughout , our nation,
that the balance of trade is against us.
The universal cry is that our imports are
in excess of our exports, and that, as a
consequence, we are running into debt
to foreign nations, and poverty and ruin
are overtaking us. It is difficult to rec
onene our acknoWledged prosperity and
increasing wealth as ,a nation, - and the
fact that the balance of trade, in this
sense, has always been against us, with
the correctness of this universally con-
ceived principle, and It is time that its
fallacies should be exposed. It will be
worth while to examine into this matter,
and thus establish right opudons.
The first error into which a majority of
writers and thinkers fall, is in regarding
the books of the custom-house as the only
standard•by which the, prosperity, of the
nation can be measured. They estimate
the value both of our imports and exports
at nur own custom house, instead of esti
'Mating then In the foreign country where
the exchange Is made. We learn, at the
custom houses that one hundred and
twenty millions have been received dur
ing a certain period, and that only, one
hundred millions have been sent to pay
for it; and, if we are not acquainted with
the course of trade, we at once jiiin•in the
cry that a debt of twenty millions has
been Incurred, 'and shudder at the thought
of having all the gold and silver drawn
from the United States to pay/or It.
Noweprinciples are best tried by remit.
ler examples. A farmer has fifty bushels
of corn, worth fifty cents per bushel on
his farm, which he brings to market and
sells for five barrels of flour, worth ten
dollariper barrel where he lives. If the
value of these articles is to be estimated
at his owidoor, he has exported twenty.
five dollars, and imported fifty dollars.
But the expense of his journey ,has lieen
twelve dollars, which makes his exports
really thirty-seven dollars. Custom
house returns give just as correct a view
of the trade of a nation; as an aceount
kept at a Xannerls door of his out-goings
and incomings would give of, the state, of
his business.:" . ` These_returns are valuable
and, necessary, but for a very ,different
purpose than that to which they are ap
A inerchrt exports, from. New York
flour ifOrth thirty thousand dollars to
Europe, and sells it, there for manufac
tured goods worth fifty thousand dollars,
which all _appears on , the books of the
custom-house as the 131/th or his imports,
with only the cost of Ms flour at New
York to balance it. But as the merchant
must'keep lils vessel. In repair;; purchase
the outfits of his voyage, and pay his sea
men, the difference between his exports
and imports is really interest clf capital,
wages of labor and profit.' • '
Custom-homte 'returnst shuw:the net , of
our exports and the eras of, our imports.
A. merchant, sending liqs ship to sea, must
charge against his yoyage not only the
first cost : : of , ll4cargo,.butau the outfits,

and all the expenses attending the land

is for or against the country, the imports
of theinerchtint 'must be placed , against
all these charges,_and if they, exceed their
aggregate amount,' hie business, whfch
customhouse returns will prove ruinous,
can be continued profit to himself
and benefit to the country.
• When the tpdance of trade is said to
be against the country,ithat is, when she
imports more than she expirrts, farfrom
its being a sign of ruin pr decay, it may be
a mark of prosperity. In the ease of an
'individual, nothing can be plainer than
that his importaithould o t exceeff his exports.
How can a man pros per, unless by re
ceiving more than he parts with? When
the master of a whaler: takes ,out provis
ions worth four hundred dollars, and re
turns with oil worth five thousand dollars,
we would find It difficult to make him be-
lieve that, because his qmports are heavi
er than his exports, he 'was 'ruiningbim-
Self, and his country. When a farmer
goes to market with, a load of , pork,
which costs him fifty dollars to raise, and
returns with a load of merchandize worth
seventy-five dollars, which he • has pur
chased with the proceeds of his pork; be
sides paying the expenses of his journey,
he would wonder a little at that political
arithmetic which , would teach him that
he had - made a losing journey. •
The Same course of reasoning will hold
good with a nation. It the 'United States,
by expbiting one hundred millions; can
import one hundred and twenty millions,
we need not fear for ' , her. prosperity, for
it must be apparent to kny candid thinker
that sear': the whole lof the difference is
represented, not by solmuch debt, but by
legitimate gain to the country, in the
_form of interest on capital, wages of labor
and profit.

Years ago we enjoyed the plealure of
reading gossipy-letters from the author of
this work, and we were, therefore, quite
prepared to find these "letters" enjoya
ble as well as piquant and instructive.
The simple fact that he has traversed fa
miliar ground, described over and
over again by gifted .pens, is no reason
why Much may not be well written, and
made entertaining by` others. Travelers
noi-a-days do not give us so much
"guide book" matter as formerly, btit
their observations from mingling with
the people" and at places of interest.
Changes occurring all the:time in the old
world; a sprightly writer and keen ob
server, cannot fail to write an entertain
ing work. These letters are from points
of interest to most readers, and the charm
ing, graceful style makes them both at-
tractive and Interesting. We think the
voltune a real addition to this class of
works. The illustrations will serve to
give readers a good idea of Orientallife.

It is conceded, hotwever objectionable

of his highly colored statements, espe
cially in his work on "Spiritual Wives,".
his remarkable genius and ability itio
grouping events together in rich lan
guage, has been rarely surpassed; There'
is a wealth of thought, too, in the beau

render his writings very attractive. '. The
thrilling events of the old tower are full
of tragic interest. Familiar •as these his;
torical facts are, the =moral:he scenes
are here encircled with a franiework cu
riously wrought by the gifted author.
There is' something ins acme, and the
shrewdness, of Mr Dixon -is demon
stratedv not only in naming this work,
but also the one; entitled '-Spiritual

Our readers need not be told that this

animals and the features of the country are

The Tenure -of-office Law.
The . . debate. in the • Senate upon the
Tjentire f ef-Office act proved conclusively
that the Mende of that measure Will, not
abandon it Without a hard straggle, and ,
will not only place their own argument
hilly before . the people, but will compel
their oPP9lients to show every reason for
its repeah. - They admit that the act was
passed to restrain Mr. Johnson,' but they
do not admit that this was the only end.
They assert that it embodies a just and
'constitutional principle and that once in.'
corporated in,the laws it 'should there re
main, They meet the argument that the'
act 'restrains the Ptesident from removing
unworthy officers, - by declaring that the
Senate will undoubtedly concur In every
removal he makes, and by doing all in
their power to secure the suspension of
the law' for the cooling' eight months.
Mr. Trumbull and Mr: Edmunds took
this ground, and abiy maintained it.'
Mr. Morton made' the point that the
stiVension!' of the . act, implied ' die.
trust of ' Grant,', and, that . i.,ougresa
placed him i int Prtibation.' The friends of
the Inman? say that, on the Contraty;the
auspenaion of the ict,wonld be the high-,
est compliment to the President. It
-would mean--that,:-while -Congress
to the principle, it yet has such faith in
Grant's integrity and, judgment- that, in,
order to give him complete liberty to act
peremptorily and at once, it consents that
ajust principle should not interfere with'
a practical necessity. They want Grant
to have 'opportunity to undo what An
drew Johnson did, and part with a con
stitutiopal right to meet an immediate ne
cessity. Mr. Edmunds made spine:very
striking arguments, which had a power-
ful effect. 4 The result of the debate to-day
is that the opposition to the repeal of the
law has been greatly strengthened,though
the fact that. the President earnestly
wishes the act to be killed has great
influence with many Senators. ,
The President yesterday made answer
to an applicant for a certain office, ‘lirh'y
that place,. sir, is not vacant,"'which
would seem to indicate that Gen. Grant
does not intend to make appointments to
offices except where vacaticieS exist, un
til the repeal. modification, or suspension
of the objectionablelaw, holding to, the
principle of his inaugural, 'that the best
way to obtain the repeal of an obnoxious
law is to rigidly enforce its piovlsions.
It was stated that tho proposed suspen
sion of the act was satisfactory to the
President as far as it goes. There ;is ;in
doubt that he would accept it and act un

to the effect that he .preferred 'that it -re

The President has expressed his,views
quite freely to Senators and others about
the law. He holds that it protects office
holders just as much during the session
as during the vacation of Congress: He
says it authorizes suspensidh during va
cation for certain specific reasons', and in
his opinion a strict and fair intexpretation
of its provisions will not alloy removal
dtuing the 'session except for reasons war
ranting suspension during *acatio.N . but

of course, not for removal . It may Is;
noted in is connection that he has made
but one removal, all his other nomina
tions having been for vacancies. The
paper in the cue of King, head' of the
engineering bureau of the Navy Depixt
ment, reads "in place of B. F. Isherwood,
whom I desire removed," but no reasons
were given. He could, of course, use
similar formula in other -cases, but
whether he would choose to do so is a
question he alone can answer. It can
also be stated that the view of the Pied- ‘-•
(Mut was communicated at the Cabinet
meeting yesterday, and was endorsed by
all the members.. The President has no
purpose •to antagonize Congress or the

tion, see that the laws are faithfully exe
cuted, and that he has no official advisers
but members of the Cabinet.

At no season of the year is the above Injunction
of more weight than now. The changes of tem
perature, hate been so sudden from warm to ex
cessive cold, that the human constitution, like
everything else in tatute, feels the stock, and
gives way to its impressions. Thousands of peo
ple _who lie down at night, unconscious as, It
were; of injury to the constitution, wake up with
hoarseness and coughs, which, unless the that
symptoms are heeded, are apt to invelve the
lungs ore' me other of the vital organs in deep
seated and incurable disease. If the fact were
as well knoin to all our readers as to ourselves,
that an infallible cure formost of these incipient
ailments may be procured in DR. KEYSER'S
LUNG CURE, the Doc' or's new stoke would
soon be too small to meet the exigenclee re
quired of it In the manufacture of this valuable -
• medicine. Dr. Keyser's Ltfng Cure is without
doubt a valuable desideratum in the cure of dis
ease, a fact well known to thousands_ of people
who have been relieved by its Ittaith.givingpow
er. It the primer estimate were placed on human
life and health, those who neglect coughs and
colds would be fewer in number. Dr. Keyser,
would in no ease, of a serious character, advise ,
the dispensing-with a doctor, but t ow many hun
dreds are there who, in the beginning of a dia•
ease, could be cared before a 'doctor could be
reached. it -is in these cases, as well se , others of
a more serious nature, that the • lung care eunes
to our aid and dispenses health and comfort,
which otherwise would never be 'obtilfied. It is
thus &handful of roots and herbs are made Into

would often apply for relief if he knew where to

obtained in Dr. Keyser's Lung Cure is nolouger
a doubtful problem. Let not the Match winds
make dangerous inroads upon your health. when, ;
with a few doses of this .syrup, you can fortify
your system as well as drive out of It tho'e noxi-
