the December session of the House. In
the meantime, neither of the contestants
is admitted to the seat, which will finally
be awarded only after a full investigation
of the respective merits of the claimants.
This accords with the wish of Mr. Co

clear by the delay.
Ma. Azimiscis, Minnow; a gentle

Tim confession of •Twrrenzta., the
Philadelphia murderer, who will expiate
his crime on the gallows on Thursday, is
.a singular and remerkable 'document. In
no other light can we view 4 than that
of being the miserable subterfuge of a
cowardly and wicked wretch, who, not
content to cross the , threshold of eternity
with the blood-guilt of a feeble old
women on his soul, seeks to make him
self more odious by dragging down • the
fair fame and replied= of one whose
honor should be much dearer to him
than the life he would save by its traduce
ment. Had the confession net been made
for the purpose of directing public opin
ion and pity in his favor, in the hope of
having his days on earth prolonged, but
whispered privately into the ear of
his spiritual adviser for publicity after
his death, it might have been much
morereadily accepted as the truth of a
dying man. In the eyes of the law. Hrs.
TwircaELL stands quiltiess of the awful
crime of matricide. Whether the law
errs, she. her husband, their GOD, only
know. Her flight proves nothing, ex
cept, perhaps, a concert of action with
the condemned felon to afford color of
truth to the assertion of her 'milt, for she'
may be willing to offer her honor and
reputation on the altar of love to save
from an ignominious death a husband,
precious to her, whose manhood is so
lost as to make him anxious to purchase
a longer •lease of life at any fearful cost.
Tnn Texas people are divided on the
question of cutting up their territory of
magnificent boundaries into several new
States. The matter was before the Re
construction Committee yesterday, when
Gei. DAVI% who, although an accredited
and paid delegate; deriving his • authority
to speak for Texas from its late Consti
tutional Convention, protested against
the constitution that body proposed and
urged, in opposition to its sentiment, the
division of the State. Ex• Gov. Hemp-
Tow ppposed him. In reflecting severely
on the stand taken by Gen. DATIS i the
Galveston (Texas) Butietis, an influential
Republican journal, concludes its article
as follows:
“These gentlemen have no right to ask ,
for a slicing up of the State in the name
of the Constitutional - Convention or the
people oftbe State, and in doing so, they'
show that'they are men of one idea—the
only idea of reconstruction that they
have, is that of slicing the State into sec
tions as butchers hew up the carcass of a•
dead animal. Some months ago we ad
vocated the contenance of military gov
ernment—not a hvbred affair in which
the military and the civil are mixed in
unequal proportions like the elements
in that wicked coinpound called punch,
but military government pure and elan
•ple. At that time Mr. Johnson was the
President, and that which may be safe
under President Grant was . not , alto
gether safe under Johnson. The volley
of this administration is for reconstruc
tion without delay, "'and o while we admit
that the old rebel element is strong
enough In Texas to vote itself into power,
we are also satistledthat any such voting ,
would be idle and useless. We can trust.
General Grant to take care of us, and to
dee to it that loyal men and loyal princi
ples are upheld andmade to triumph.”
We ire pained to leain ;that the health
of the great War-13ecreta7 is so preca
rious as to justify the deepeat solicitude
of his friends. • His situOlon does not
improve ashas been hoped, but is regard
ed with an increased anxiety. Hopes of
his final . recovery are still entertained,
while, in any event, another issue is.not
to be immediately feared. We learn also
that he has recently been baptized by the
clergyman with whose church he Is united.

demy of MUSIC, will-draw a crowded au

• The Senate amends the Indian-APpro
pnation bill, with a clause authorizing
the President to appoint a Boird; of not
more than ten Commlisioneri, to serve
without cotsPensition, to exercise a joint
control with the Interior Department,
over the disbureement of appropriations
for Indian purpsies. It is said that . the
House will not concur in the Senate

laborer is worthy of his hats' and We cert
not eurselves afford{ in the long run, to
accept the gratuitous services of any'man,
no matter with what traditional etemption
from personal weaknesses or official de
linquency. The best' way to'secure hon
est and capable men is to pay them fairly
—and the public service is not prop
erly to be limited only to those whose
abundance of priu i é means permits of a
service without charge. The principle is
too bad to be recognized, even in behalf
of Friends,- or for I the benefit of the In
dians. Once introduced, we have no
guarantee against its future illustration in
other hands, in the most reprehensible
Moreover, if the Interior Department
has not a head whose character and ca
pacity entitle him to tne fullest measure of
the public .trust—who must be himself
controlled by a board of outside advisers
—it is time for appointing a new Secreta
ry. In fact, Secretary Cox is amply
worthy of the confidence of the Presi
dent, Congress and the country, and we
believe that he justly shares so much in
the universal respect felt for him by all
who know him, not to decline participa
tion in an affair where his personal integ
rity and official., judgment are thus im
pugned. I
The trouble is not with the Secretary,
but with his subordinates, especially the
Agents, whose administration of their
duties, under preceding Presidents, has
deserved all , the infamous responsibility
for these Indian abuses. The new Presi
dent and the new Secretary need only to
reform their subordinates, ninety-nye per
cent, of whom hors been allies or tools of
the "ring," to ensure the long-needed and
effective reform in the-service of the In:
dian Bureau. Change the personnel of
that Bureau, Coruide the Agencies to
Friends altogether, if no other religious
denomination supply the needful
sum of honesty nd capacity; send these
Agents among tie tribes, where the con
formity of their jpractice to their prin
ciples will soon win the confidence of the
savages. Let these miserable wretches
have an opportunity to learn that all
white men are not scoundrels, but that at
least some of than can be true friends to
theignorint and depraved heathen. If
there be really aught to be gained
by the influence , in teaching and ex
ample, of the Quakers,—and we
believe that there is—let the ex
periment be tried , in the Indian coun.
try, and not at a distance of two thousand
miles at the Capital. If Friends are to
accomplish anything of value, it must be
by personal labors in the midst of the
tribes. There they are needed; atWash
ington they can 'do no particular good.
We trust that the House will thrciw out
this amendment of the Senate, for it looks
like a dodge of the Indian "ring" and
nothing else— l a dodge to beep honest
Agents away from the plains, and to cre
ate such antagonisms, between the De
partinent and lig gratuitous, but potential
advisers, as win disgust either party, or
both, and so bring the well-meant and
'really commendable proposition from
Friends into such practical disfavor as
will lead to its ultimate abandonment.
This view is abundantly justified when
we perceive that the movement in its
present shape owes its real origin to Mr.
iIkILLAN—a Senator who is notoriously
hedged about by the obnoxious "ring,"
or, otherwise, has been grossly slandered
before the 'country. His sudden promi
nence in this new line of benevolence
and official purity suggests a suspicion of
"Greek gifts"—and le likely to be so un

Ex-Senator WADE responds, to a com

We share, equally with a very large

~ We do not know
that he personally ' feels any wish to en

the popelir confidence, but we do sin-,
cerely, deplore the- contingendea which
'have resulted in , his temporary loss to
the public service. Mr. WADE, to-day'
as ever, faithfully represents the senti
ments of a large majority,of the. peciple

bitter par t izanship which hates him

defeat of the Senator's yeAlection. The
game . sucCeedetk and' Mr. WADE, his
Ideas, the Republican majority OhlO;
and the principles dem. to him and to them,
were alike made the temporary victims
of an apparent Democratic.triumph.
We admire the thirty years' political
record of this brave old man. But we
must hesitite in our concurrence in the
new platform presentelabovei Its phra- .
ecology is captivating, but its promises
are delusive. Property, whether in lands
or gold, will gather into few hands se
long as individwg inequalities shall exist,
in the mental or physical gifts of the
Creator to his human creatures. trntil
the capacity to acquire shall be as uni
form as the opportunities for its
exertion, huthan . society !mud con
tinue to illustrate \ the "possibility
for 'one man to approtoriate the avails
of the labor of thousands of others," no
matter in what those avails may be
amassed. Human laws, if la ise, will con
tinue to recognize—nay, more, to pro
tect—that possibility, as the equal right
of every man on the planet. Until then,
a true Republicanisni will be what it is—
and thatis neither communism nor agra
rianism. Is that what the 'ex-Senator
would have? Does he confine his equal
ity to the right of acquisition,' or to the
property itself ?
We will go as far as Mr. WADE de
sires, in enforcing existing legislation
against any form of the dishoUest acqui
sition of property. If that legislation be
defective, we will unite with him heartily
in supplying the needful additions. And
we,trrust that he will be content to 'agree
with us, and with the right sense of all
mankind, in the most unyielding user
don of the equal right of honest acquisi
tion of all men alike, under the same law
for all. Thus regulated, this right is the
real main-spring of all true and beneficial
social development---and without It, re
formers of even Mr. WAnn's ability
would sadly fail in the work of recon
structing, not human society, but human
ity itself. Let us hope that even he has
been so successful ,in appropriating to
himself the avails of the labor of others,
or in monopolizing a reasonable share of
the earth. as to guarantee to his declining
years that comfortable repose to which he
is entitled by a long course of distin
guished public service.
The Executive nominations give gen
eral satisfaction—to all but the disap
pointed candidates. The find' action of
the Senate is delayed by the customary
reference to the appropriate' committees.
Friday's list of one hundred and fifty.nine
nominees opened the sluices of the
pent-up stream of Pre.sidential patronage,
with an immediate effect which a corres
pondent thus describes:
The Civil Tenure law haV,ln g been
finally disposed Of, it was anticipated that
the removals and appointments to office
would begin to he made in earnest. Ac
cordingly, to-daV, the hundreds of office
seekers now here Smirk' to the Capitol,
and hung around the Wenate Chamber,
anxiously and 'nervously" awaiting the
arrival of the President's Secretary with ,
his batch of nominations. At about two
o'clock Gen. Porter made his appear
ance, and after depositing, with the Sen
ate his sealed packages of appointments
he repaired to the Secretary's office, and ,
there placed a list of the same for the
public. In an instant *a grand rush was
made for this office, and soon there was
scarcely standing room therein. The re.
porters, of the afterwon pipers tried in
vain to secure copies of the names on the
list, but the hungry, anxious, and eager
crowds rushed in pell-mell, and made s
high time generally. It was amusing to
see the expressions of the faces of these
people after the list -had been read. Of
course none of the succassful candidates
were present, and all were disappointed.
The score or more persons seeking the
same office- sought their Congressman,
and each demanded explanations of the
why and wherefore. Profanity raged
among all. In the evening there was
great commotion in the hotel lobbies;
a rush was made for the evening trains
and extra cars were ordered on. The
&40 trap for New,York wee packed with
the moat dejected, pitiful, iprofane, and
demoralized crowd of men:that ever left
this city. ' •
The following Postmasters were ap
pointed to-day in Pennsylvania: Ulysis,
Potter county, A. B. Bennett; vice E. C.
Lewis, resigned; Turtle Creek, Alle
gheny county, J. B. Higlet,;.vice Sim
mons, removed; Smithfield, Fayette
county, L. W. Bambino', vice D. B.
Goodwin, removed.
The proposition'Of &lister Kellogg to
divide out the offices 'fairly among the
several States lain harmong with the ex
pressed purpose of Secretary Fish, but
whin President Grant was approached on
the same subjedt he denounced ,the idea,
and declared that so far as he was con
earned he would take;every officer of his
Administration from Marblehead, in
Massachusetts, if necessary to secure
faithful and efficient officers. Ile had no
patience, he said, with the notion of divid
ing out offices to the States, as if' there
were so much "plunder to be distributed.
The public service alone should he con- I
suited. and not localities.' '
The nominations give general satisfac
tion to uninterested parties, but there are
many whose growls dre deep" and curses
prolonged: ; It is-estimated' that at least
three thousand persona have left town, or'
will, leave to-morrow, disappointed that
they have not.een appointed themselves:
or succeeded in getting their' friends
pointed. The cry everywhere is that the
guillotine is at work,And the anxiety of
office-holders is most intense. It is ex
pected that the good work will; now be
kept up Until the •adjournment, and that,
if necessary, the Senatewill be convened
in extra session for 'executive ; blindness.
- It is a noticeable' ha' that,most' of the
nominations importance sent in to;day

It was 'kitty anticipated wifik that the
4%1141/11K4on Maw.

first District of Pennsylvania, now va-
Colittr to Hon. Jahn. Covode, but. the de

Was only signed by five Republicans,.Mr.
'Garfield, to the surmise of every one, led
off In a:raid on behalf of Mr. Poster, the
Democratic candidate, and was reinforced
by. Mr. Schenck. - :
They succeeded in to demoralizing a
nuraber of Republicans, that it was feared
that on the technical . points they might
Possibly get twenty.= votes to go with
the Democrats, and Mr. Covode, desiring
tA?,.have the seat only on the merits of the
case. made a sudden flank movement in
having his case referred back to the Com
mittee, with instructions to take testimo
ny and report who is to have the seat On
the merits of the contest. This will car
ry it over to the December session, but
keeps out both Messrs. Poster and Co
vode, and in the meantime Mr. Covode
etin comply with'the forms of law, and
have the same testimony now befoie the
House put in aucha shape as will show
clearly that he had over five hundred legal
majority in last fall's election. The Dem
ocrats are much chagrined at the result of
the affair.
