_ The French elections are resulting, as
anticipated, inn decisive triumph for the
Imperial government. The canvass is
not to be cloied until this evening, but it
is already ascertained that the opposition
are barely able to retain the strength they
had in the last Legislative Body. Con
sidering that, of late years, the Emperor
has inaugurated a marked enlargement of
the popular rights, in the matter of public
meetings and the freedom of expressed
opinions, and that the elections now clos
ing have been in fact still more free from
the interventions of authority than any
. which France ha.Tknown since the Em
peror cane in—we may well be satisfied
that Napoleon Is still Emperor by
the consent and with the hearty support
of a large majority of his people. An oc
casional emuete in the larger cities exhib
its the constitutional - safety-valve for the
escape of the superabundant excitability
of the proletarian classes. The more in
tellectual masses of the empire find vent,
for their turbulent impatience of all re
straint, through the press, which inva
riably pays the due penalties promptly.
With these exceptibns, the heart and the
great body of the French nation are thor
oughly with an Emperor who has, for
twenty years, upheld French honor,
gratified French pride, and conciliated
every material interest of his people, with
the smallest possible expenditure of their
treasure and blood.
The recent letter of Prof GOLDWIN

English countrymen that the - Americans

To GoLimits SMITH, Esq:
I have read your letter to the Loudon
Beehive, also, portions of your published
speech recently delivered at Ithaca, New
York. Great learning sometimes warps
the judgment. Suppose, for a moment,
Mr. Smith, that a gang of armed men
should take possession of your house and
burn it to the ground, and upon your re
monstrating with them upon the injustice
thus done, they should quietly slip a pair
of handcuffs upon yon and detain you in
that situation five days, with a feed of
bread and water only. I had this done
to a friend of mine by Englishmen on the
high seas.
Suppose again, Mr. Smith, you should
wake up some morning and find your
property ins ship, to the ,amount of sso,
uOO, had been burnt upon the high-seas
by a vessel which was built at Birken
head, and which left Englieh ports with
the full knowledge of the English Gov
ernment that she had no right thus to
leave—and suppose for a moment further
that the builder of the ship was a mem
ber of the House of Commons. Now,
Mr. Smith, you being. an Englishman
think the House of Coreknona, as we say,
is some pumpkins. Suppose then that
this member, in making his boast of the
doings of the ship, gloried In the fact that
he not only built her, but that he aided
her in her clandestine escape; all of
which was received by the great and
glorious House of Commons with cheers
and shouts of congratulation. Your
breakfast would not taste so good that
morning, Mr. Smith. This is one of

should have still another vessel burned

half right.
The ideal of a perfect Government is one
which combines in itsell'imblif Artne.
goodness of intention, with :'`and
strength. It his been clo:lmed dist white
in a Democracy, where the right of ma
king laws resides in the people at large,
public virtue or goodness of intention •is
more likely to be found than either of the
other qualities of Government, yet,
there is more wisdotr in aristocracies ir di d
more strength in monarchies. Ther o r e ti c .
ally, our government was inte.nded to
combine all these necessary qualities.
The people being the court of last resort,
we are a Democracy. Our laws being
made by Legislatures,- and not by the
direct vote of the people, we are an Aris
tocracy; and the laws being carried into
effect through officials chosen for
specific terms, and removeable only
for gross dereliction of duty,
we are protanto a monarchy. Added to
all this we have a thorough common
school system, colleges of repute, reli
gions and moral advantages, great natural
wealth, in short, everything which is
needful to constitute a virtuous; wise,
strong, honest people. With the ideal
thus hovering before us ana within our
reach, it seems strange indeed that we
should have fallen to such a depth of
abasement. The air is filled with rumors
of corruption , and dishonesty in high
places. Our State Legislatures, from
Maine to California, are alleged to be
rotten with corruption. Congress is said
to be no better. Governors are charged
with taking bribes, and so down through
the scale of offices from the highest to the
lowest, until it would seem that there
was a dearth of honesty in the land; that
we were a nation of thieves and plunder
ers, lacking in every virtue and heaping
ups burden of iniquities sufficient to blot
out our national existence.
That there is much truth contained in
these charges nil attentive observer of
passing events can deny. But why it ;
should be so, and how can it be remedied,
are. questions so important as to require
the careful attention of every well wisher
of his cohntr3. It will not do to content
ourselves with Alenouncing corruption;
we must aim to remove it. No govern.
ment can be wise or strong without pub
lic virtue. It lies at the foundation of all
government. No doubt much of the
prevalent corruption may he attributed
to the derangement of the ordinary
.course of events attendant upon the late
war. But is there not some latent defect
in our social organism tending strongly
to produce this condition of affairs?
It can not be attributed to political
strife. For, in the early days of the Re
public, when party spirit ran as hii as it
• does now, no such result followed. It
cannot be attributed to our form of gov
ernment. For theoretically that is all that
can be desired. It cannot be attributed
to lack of intelligence-or of moral or re
ligious advantages. • For we have all
these. What then is the cause of it ?
'Simply this, It seems to me. Our best
men are content to take no active part in
the affairs of State. We send to our Con
gress and State Legislatures men whom
we would not trust in the management of
our private affairs. We put in office men
who are known to have been dishonest
in private life. We ask no recommenda
tion but the endorsement of a party con
vention. Ido not blame the conventions.
They do the best they can. The evil lies
back of that. They ordinarily rep
resent the will of the people so
far as expressed to them. We
must take care that that will is properly
and intelligently expressed. Good citi
zens must recognize the fact that it is just
as important to attend primary meetings,
and nominate reliable men for delegates,
as it is to vote at the regular elections.
But there is another matter which seems
to me all important. The State must of
fer inducements sufficient to lead its best
citizens to seek her service. She must
pay for it. She must follow the exam
ple of her enterprising citizens. The
rules of political economy are just the
same for the State as for the citizen.
While, therefore, the State will not pay
for service as much as a competent, hon
est man can earn by attending to his pri
vate affairs, just so long will she be de
of the services of her purest and
best citizens.
Cheap public service has always been the
bane of our country. It is a direct
temptation, to dishonesty in public life
just as low pay is in private life. For .m
-stance, bow many lawyers earning
$lO,OOO a year by their practice would
accept a Judgeship at $5,000. How
many men - earning $lO,OOO a year would
risk the loss of their private business by
accepting a Governorship at $5,000.
Charity begins at home. and the State is
no object of charity. Let her pay liber
ally and she will not be compelled to ac
cept every Tom, Dfck or Harry who
seeks to enter her service. She will have
the choice of - the best men of the nation.
There is another matter, too.which
we might reform. Let every officer be
paid a salary. So far as the official is
concerhed, do away with all-fees. Many
men are dishonest in trifles who would,
in their beginning at least, scorn to do a
great dishonest act. Remove the temp
- When, therefore, we all can make up our
minds to take Our full share in all the
machinery of government, voting when
ever votes are being cast, we will have
made along step towards Reform; and
when to , that we add a liberal compensa
tion to our officers, we will have fewer
complaints of bribery and corruption.

EDITORS . GAZETTE: I have taken and
read . the Commercial since it was - started,
and ram glad to learn that the spirit of
reform is actuating it to a vigorous attack
upon corruption. With all efforts, either
of that'or any other paper, or individual,
to expose and put down corruption, I
most heartily sympathize. I commended
the Commercial 'a course in denouncing
the palters and folders schemeof plunder.
That deserved the severest reprobation.
I commend its course and your own in
favoring the nomination of Joseph Dil
worth, Esq., for County Commissioner.
But there is one thing, which seems , to
be the chief target- of the Commercial's
fire, that; as yet, I am utterly un
able tot' see among . the political
phenomena of this county, ' and
that is the "Rings." Now I will not
undertake to say there are not "Rings,"
but Ido say that I have taken a pretty
active part in politics for several yeares
and if there are I have failed' to discovet
co them.
nstitute them? What are
Who the "Rings"? Who
have 'the honor,
or dishonor rather, to be their chiefs?
' Where are their headquarters—it "RinP"
These questions -I

there be, "Rings" let the public know all
eu_ee.t. them . It has occurred to me that
Pelvably those politicians who are active
Ir. the county Conventions are the subjects
,of this charge. If that be the case, the
charge is not only groundless, but
a most foul aspersion upon the
men whose party zeal and fidelity wiri
our victories. These are the men
who do the work—who organize success.
In convehtion they select the best men
presented, nine times out of ten, and the
people could not do more if they could
do as much in a contest, where the
cities would have a numerical preponder
ance. To be sure they make mistakes.
But look at the candidates . ; ordinarily be

drawn this out longer than I intended.
I shall await the Commercial's answers to
the questions put, and if it exposes
"Rings" I shall go as far as anybody in
endeavoring to overthrow them.

MESSRS En7ous:—ln your issue of the
22d inst., I noticed a communication from
Jos. Dilworth. Esq., accepting the posi
tion as candidate for the important office
of County Commissioner, and proposing,
if elected, to contribute all he receives as
compensation for- services rendered, to
the support of the rrior of Allegheny
I do not approve of Mr. ,Dilworth's
proposition, and am astonished that a man
of his intelligence and good sense should
make such a proposal. Surelyhe cannot
entertain the idea that none but those
who have been fortun .te enough, to
have inherited riches or amassed fortunes
and Can afford to labor without compensa.
don, should aspire to hold office. I hope
not. Such notions of political economy
might suit England, France or Russia,
but in this land of liberty and equal priv
ileges, where the masses govern and are
the sovereigns of the country, it is the
duty of all good citizens to guard well
their rights, and see that the machinations
of those pOssessed of wealth shall not de
grade them to the level of mere serfs.
The honest intelligent poor man- should
have an eqUal chance with the rich man
in the race for positions of honor or profit.
As a friend of Mr. Dilworth's and one
who wishes to see him nominated by the
Republican Convention, I considei it due
the intelligent voters of Allegheny county
that he should disclaim any intention ofre
fleeting upon the honest poor man, in pro
posing to serve the county of Allegheny for
the benefit of the poor. I feel certain that
Mr. Dilworth aims at doing right, and
will be pleased to hearhim define his
position more minutely. A FRIEND.
EDITORS OF GAZETTE : This morning's
Commercial contains a card from Mr.
George. H. Holtzman in reply Ito my In
quirks in regard to the "Bank Tax As
sessorship." It seems that he is the iden
tical Assessor who got $1,200 1 from the
State i l ieasury, for what w ould be a
week's work for any ordinary bank
clerk. If it took Mr. H. two months to
perform the labor, as he asserts, he is too
stow for a legislator. If he "accepted the
office without knowing the compensa.
tion," when the fact, that the Assessor
should receive seven per cent. of the
amount assessed, Nyas.the only clear stip
ulation in the act creating the office, he
is quite too dull for the position he now
seeks. As to the "ring" having controlled
the subsequent appointments to that-of
fice, the writer knows nothing. But that
the Treasurer (Kemble) desired to avoid
the scramble that would , take place if it
was known that the office existed, and
appoiated Mr. H. without solicitation, is
drawing largely on the popular imagina
tion.' The current report at Harrisburg
at the time was that the whole matter
was arranged in the interest of a
Senator before the bill had passed, for
Mr. H. and the Senator's own son. But,
perhaps, everybody was mistaken in that.
Who knows? OBSERVER.

the interrogatory communication in the
GAZETTE of the 22d inst. With virtuous
indignation he is down on "office seeking
rings." If he is not identified--with such
"rings," his own admissions certainly
prove that he was not averse to "ring"
favors—sl,2oo for "about two weeks"
serving is over.s7,ooo per annum. Pretty
good piece of "ring" that—which he
says he never asked for. Well, let us see
how it came about. •
Mr. T. J. Bight= was a chief in engi
neering the bill creating the o ffi ce of Bank
Assessor. He is well - known to have
been personally, and in sympathy, con•
nected with the Commercial., rWe have
Mr. Holtznaan's admission that he also was
on that paper. Mr. Bigham's son was his
associate assessor and equal with \ him in
the emoluments. -
Now notwithstanding Mr: H. asserts
that he is "not afraid to approve the Cow

of tine edacatilm, and rare journalistic
abilities, has established at Harrisburg,
a paper called The Progress of Freedom,
which he propeses to devote to the in

universal liberty and equality. Mr.
Hughes condudted a newspaper in Ten

bellion, and contributed largely towards
securing the triumph of Republican
principles in that dist acted State. We
sincerely hope tl ema meet with proper
encouragementi in hi new enterprise,
and that our own citizens, white and col

subscriptions, fv which he will call on
them during th present week.

Secretary Bontwell and the Newspapers,
The Washington correspondent of the
Worcester (Mass.) Gazelle, in speaking of
the Treasury Department, says:
"The Secretary is conscious enough of
the fact that his every movement is closely
watched. His policy of buying bonds
and selling gold is sharply criticised and
warmly defended. Mr. McCulloch, in
the later days of his career, read only
the newspapers by which he was sus
tained—those which opposed his course
were cut off from the subscriPtion list as
well as from the advertising list. Gov
ernor Boutwell says he - cares most for
those which oppose his course—he wants
to see all that is said against the policy
which he has adopted. He is sincerely
working for the public good, and holds
himself amenable not less to the law than
to the public judgment. - For mere parti
san bitterness, for bombastic and unreas
oning censure, he cares nothing; he is
thankful to every man who earnestly -and
vigorously points out objections to his
purposes and methods.
GENERAL' DODGE, Engineer of the
Union Pacific Railroad, telegraphs from.
Omaha that all arrangements for through.
travel are complete, and both freight and.
passenger trains are running on time.
The greater portion of the road, he says,,
is in as good order as any lying east of
Omaha, but owing to the erection of some
permanent bridges and stone culverts in
place of temporary structures, and
changes on small portions of the road bed,
the company will not present the road
as fully finished before the Ist of August.
