saigas: 22 THURSDAY, JANUARY 21, 18CD. Schemes and Schemer. Tor a full half hour, reader, we cast ;i jout us for something of which to write for your own special interest ami int ruc tion. At labt. we got something. Net that we had nothing at fiit, It we hud plenty ; but it was only commonplace matter about commonplace things, such as irjruiuori place eple think, .and Fpcak. and write about. We wanted something aeri al, or romantic, r chivalrous, or startling. Wc thou-'ht of the last accident on the Panhandle Kailro.id below Pittsburg, but instantly dismissed it as trifihq; for an accident that breaks the skulls, or tears out the hearts, or sa:n.shc:s the bones, or crushes into jel'y the bodies of four or five people, by pitching them a hundred feet tlowu to the rocky bod of a creek or river, or over a precipice, or by running two trains or boats against each other at twen ty miles an hour, is not of that impor tance, romantically considered, to make a first-clas article even for a country week ly. Before rising to that dignity, at least fifty people must be killed and wounded the scene to wind up by the cars or boats taking fire, much to the dismay of the ttfliTd and easily frightened passengers, i Wc are certainly a great people. We live in an age of progress. We arc past the middle of the nineteenth century. We ilrm't hang people any more for stealing hhecp. We don't convict a man any more for shooting or killing any body (any male body) without warning, or fcelf-dcfencc, whom he suspects of having been mutual ly agreeable with his bister, or wife, or grandmother. And why should wc, for is not this an age of progress ? We have rejected the fogy notion that it takes two to make a bargain. This is an age of progress. b'urcly we arc a groat nation. Haven t -wc put down the rebellion I Didn't we catch Jeff. Duvis in petticoat? Didn't wc back down Johnny JJull ? Didn't we buy Alaska '! Didn't wc have an earth quake in California ? Can't wc kill more people by bursting boilers, and smashing railroad cars, and exploding kerosene lamp!', than any of the old, effete monar chies of Europe ? Lastly, can't wc under take to collect more revenue, and get cheated out of a larger amount of it, than any other pc p!o '! Doesn't it follow, then, that .Viucrica 'a tlio groiiit nation in tlie world ? Just as the cagK 's tlie biggest bird. So, then, wc ought to have the biggest behemes and schemers ; and havcu't we ? Our debt is not big, compared to our size. Only something short of three billions. It might be twice, or ten times, the size it is. Who cares for expenses, unless it is IJciioral Grant, and his bosom friend, Washburne, from Illinois ? It is a grand thing to think that we can afford to have such mighty schemes, and the national debt besides. Just look at s iue of our schemes and fcehemers. First vf all is the great American pro tectorate over the West India republics of Ilayti and San Domingo, with an eye to a like protectorate over Cuba, and finally over Mexico; and here is General Banks tho schemer. But Banks was immeasu rably outschenied by the proposition to extend the protectorate over Ireland, "which could whip England on a fair field any day j" aud member of Congress llob inson, from New York, is tho schemer who out schemed the schemer Bank?. Next i.s the scheme to pay an ingenious individual the nice little sum of 50,000 to aid him in constructing a telegraph of his own invention that diupcnscs with the use of wires and poles, and substitutes mother earth and mother air. The name of this inventor and schemer n Mahlon Loomis. Then "there is a very fat and sleek scheme to induce the Government to pay Slti.000 a mile to aid in constructing a railroad from Little Keck, away down in Arkansas, to some point ou the Itio Grande, thence to the Pacific, a distance of not less than fifteen hundred miles. The godfathers of this sthenic are the t-c'acming Senators from Arkansas. But the biggcht scheme is to give the c untrv? in lieu of the national bank cur rcr.cy, three hundred and fifty millions of l'nitcd States Treasury certificates, in is sjcs of from one dollar to one thousand dv.llars, which shall bear a little better than three and a-half per cent, interest, for which the Government will not even promise to pay cither gold or silver, the idea being to have a. currency that is not roJceoiablo except by paying it to the Government for taxes, kc. The chief merit of tliia scheme is it "ctwticity," for if ::t any time the currency heron: scarce, or a fresh supp'y needed, it is only c c issary to light the fire that heats the lvjiJor III hold the water that makes tho fetculil that starts the engine that drives the press that makes the money that Un cle Sam uses. The father of this biggest of all schemes is tho biinrest of all the schemers, Bcnjsnnitt F. Batlcr, of Massachusetts. The JLeglftlature. At the last session of the Legislature, an act was passed, and may be found on page 70 of the State laws for 1SG8, redu cing the total number cf officers and em ployees attendant on both branches of that body to about fifty, in which number are included ten persons as pasters and fold ers of the public documents, at salaries of $000, and two superintendents, at $800 each. This act, however, did not in any way afiecfc tho persons who had previously been c'cctcd to do the pasting aud folding of the two houses. The consequence was that the ccst to the State of folding and pasting the public documents in wrappers for distribution was, on the part of the House, $37,000, and, on the part of the House and Senate together, about $50,000. Soon after the opening of the present ses sion, an offer was made in caucus by Messrs. Kaucii & Cochran, publishers of Father Abraham, of Lancaster city, to do the entire pasting and folding of the IIoti3 for $5,000, and of the Senate for $2,500, or both together for an even $7,000. On the ground that the law before re ferred to made provision for the work, and prevented action on the proposition, it was almost unanimously rejected. Yet on the heels of its rejection, a resolution was adopted in the same caucus to repeal the law of last session and give each member the appointment of a paster and folder. On this resolution, a committee was ap pointed, we believe, for both branches. We arc heartily glad to sec that the Sen ate committee have reported adversely to the proposed repeal, and hope they will be sustained by an emphatic majority. "What the House committee have done or may do, we cannot say. But this We Say that such extrava gance had better be nipped iu the bud. Such reckless expenditure of the public money is simply dishonest. If Republican Knembcrs have neither the good of the State nor their party at heart, they may take part in such extravagance while they have the opportunity ; but wc greatly mistake if they do not find themselves at home as soon as possible, covered, if not with the ''odium thr.ologlcum" at least with the ''odium leyislatorcm." Senatorial. Senator Itamscy is to be returned to the II. S. Senate from Minnesota. Carl Schurz has been nominated by the Republican Legislative caucus in Missouri as their candidate for like honor, in place Senator Henderson. Hannibal Hamlin has received the Re publican caucus nomination by a majority of one over Senator Morrill, present in cumbent from Maine. A. W. Campbell is likely to be elected by the Legislature of West Virginia. He is said to be a man of decided ability. In New York, Governor Fenton has been nominated, over Senator Morgan, the present incumbent. Lt.-Gov. Wm. J. Cumbach has been chosen from Indiana, in place of Senator Hendricks. Senator Stewart is to be returned from Nebraska. Senator Chandler will be elected from Michigan. Is the editor of the Freeman- utterly and entirely revengeful ? Can he neither iorgive nor forget ? Will he never rise to that virtuous bight which is crowned with good words for enemies, and particularly for political enemies ? Will he never be come able to bury in furgetfulness the re membrance that some two years ago Hou. D. J. Morrcll beat him for Congress, and cease feeling ugly about it ? Wc like the editor of the Freeman very much, and would gladly forget that he suffered the stings of defeat. But here, about every second week, he obtrudes his private and personal troubles upon the public through the columns of his paper, and says harsh things about Mr. Morrcll, and hints at corruption, and talks of the potency of money, and says something about the un gratefulness of Republics, and in general conducts himself like a bear with a sore head, and we cannot forget it, and cannot but think that ho is not amiable and for giving, but egotistical and vindictive. Our ueighbor may feel that his political fate has been sad, and may even become morbid on the subject. But he should keep his diitempered thoughts and ideas to him self. Tho people are satisfied with the choice they made for Congressman, and if the Freeman man culy maintains a decent degreo of silence, it will not be known that he docs not bow good-naturedly to the will of the majority, but sups upon anger in " ' secret. fif Hop. Hester Clytncr declines '.o be a candidate lor Governor. Our Washington Letter. Washington, Jan. ISth, 1SG9. To the Editors of The Alleghanian : It is very difficult to crowd into the brief space of a letter of reasonable length even a synopsis of the Congressional pro ceedings of a week. Every day brings forth something of interest, either in the shape of original propositions, or new views of old ones. The present Congress is near its dksO' iuiion. iany measures, now in a semi finished stage, may remain unperfected. The respective friends of these are anxious, if not clamorous, for precedence, not wil ling to leave them to the undeveloped mercy of a succeeding lesislature. It is too often the case, that private bills are urged with so great pertinacity, that great public measures have "to take a back seat. It is to be hoped that Congress will, dur ing the less than two months yet left of its official life, devote itself first to final decis ions on the public questions before itr and then, a3 a subservient consideration, to private interests. Such a course of action will meet the hearty approval of the coun try. As I mentioned in my lsst communica tion, the financial problem is the all-absorbing topic of debate in Congress, and of conversation in all circles out of it. No one cau yet form an approximate opinion of what will eventually be done, or left undone. The people having elected that "the national honor requires the payment of the public indebtedness in the utter most good faith, not only according to the letter but the sju'rit of the laws under which it was contracted," the requirement seems to be the securing of the means for meeting the obligations. All evasions will be pusillanimous and dishonest. Until the question shall have passed through the ordeal of argumentat ion, and some one of the various propositions assumed tangible shape, I will forego speculation, exhorting your readers to be patient, and :tbey will see what they will see' There is now a very important bill un dergoing discussion in the Senate, known as the "Sue Murphy case." It involves the question, whether the National Gov ernment is liable for damages to property sustained by the loyal citizens of the South ern States, during the war. Southern members of Congress are becoming impor tunate. It being a test case, great conse quences are involved in the result. There are large delegations here from Mississippi, Virginia and Georgia urging, in relation to the first two, Congressional action looking to their reconstruction and admission to representation ; and, in the ease of Georgia, either the admission of the Senators elect, or remanding the State to her position before the adoption of her constitution, on the ground of having vio lated the reconstruction acts, by the eject ment of the colored representatives from the State Legislature. All matters con nected with these questions are iu the committees, where they are being cxaniin-. cd aud sifted. ' ' On Monday last, outsiders were taken by surprise, in consequence of the passage, by the House of Representatives, of a res olution, by the heavy vote of 121 to 47, repealing the Tcuure-of-Civil-Ofiice Act. The largo majority favoring the repeal was undoubtedly secured by the representation that it was to be viewed as a vote of con fidence in the incoming administration. It is not certaiu how soon the Senate will take up this resolution. " It will, no doubt, undergo discussion, before it be finally ; passed. Senator Wilson of Massachusetts has introduced a bill amending the law as it now stands. Expectation is ou tip-toe for the coming "Inauguration Day." In all political or ganizations, the anxious benches are crowd ed, not now by mournerx, but by expec tants, redolent with the smiles with which sanguine hope wreathes the human counte nance. The time will soon come, whei disappointment will be the lot of many who "in the wild hunt after office" think their respective claims irresistible. Tho announcement that the searching inquiry "is he worthy ?" will be made, iu the ease of each applicant for place under President Grant's administration, and that honesty, capacity and faithfulness to the Constitu tion and the principles enunciated in the Declaration of Independence will be con sidered as the essentials to constitute wor thiness, docs not suit the tastes of a cer tain class cf political braggadocios who are beginning to wend their way to the Capi tal. "I am neither a prophet nor a son of a prophet," but I can plainly see lar enough into the future, to safely predict that those whose political principles are subservient to personal aggrandizement will not have the ear nor the confidence of the new President. ' President Grant's administration will be an eventful one. He will have to grap ple with rnomcntoua questions, fraught with weal or woe to the country, and on a rightful decision of which the very ex istence of the Republic will depend. He will not have the light of precedents to guide him. We live amid surroundings such as have not heretofore existed since the formation of the government. A gi gantic rebellion has been crushed. Stated, purely in rebellion, have been re-admitted, under promises of future loyalty profes sedly repentant, (but untried) rebels have bceu re-clothed with the garb of citizen ship the shackles have been wrenched from the limbs of a heretofore cuslaved race, which has been admitted to a partio-, ipation iu the choice of our political rulers. The burdens necessarily imposed upon the people by a long aud bloody war to pre serve the Nation's life, are to be lightened. These, aud their resulting issues, will call for the exertion of mental and physic al labor, guided by patriotism and philan throphy. such as no occupant of the Pres idential mansion has ever performed. Pennsylvania will, without reasonable doubt, be favored with a Cabinet appoint ment. Whom President G rant may select oftho.se whose names have been mention ed, I cannot determine. We will rest sat isfied that a judicious choice will be made a choice that will be hailed from the Delaware to the Ohio :as one eminently fit to be made." But let me return to the subject of the approaching inaugural ceremonies Aside from the politicians, tho :gay and festive" Lave bright dream, by day and night, of a "hugely" enjoyable time. The votaries of fashion are preparing for a display of "toggery" such as has neve? been seen in Washington. Terpsichore will be inau gurated to preside over the mazjr dance wht.ro "fair women and brave men" will make up a scene of imposing splendor and jovful mirth. The extensive accommoda tions which the hotels can furnish have already been engaged by associations and individuals, who propose being in attend ance. It will be a day of forgetfulaess of sorrow for the past, and of bright antici pations of the future. On Tuesday last, Gen. B. F. Butler, of Massachusetts, submitted a "'financial plan," which has becor.e the theme of considerable discussion. It is not such a project as will commend itself to the calm judgment of Congress. He sweepingly denounces a mctalic currency as a relic of barbarism, and stigmatizes gold and silver as the props of despotism. He a.Ivccntcs the withdrawal of the greenbacks, and the issuing, in their stead, of a currency to be styled "certificates of value," the credit of" which is to be ba?2d ;y?i tTie credit of the Government, but which the Government shall not be bound to redeem at any spec ified time ; or rather that they shall never bo redeemed in anything that is now con sidered a standard of v.Iue. Gold and silver are to be ignored, and printed paper, with the Government seal impressed there on, is to be substituted. On the deposit of the L'nitcd States six per -cut. bonds, by an individual or corporation, he would hand over an amount of these 'certificates of value," less ten per cent., on which cer tificates the borrower must pay C.65 per cent, interest, to be charged against the accruing interest on the bonds. By this process, he looks to the entire absorption of the bonds, and the i. j.vsible inflation of the circulation to the full amount of the bonded debt of tho county, reserving, however, to the borrower the privilege of receiving back siich amount of the bonds, held as collateral by the Government, as said borrower ui?.y desire, by his paying "certificates of value" for the same. This is an imperfect outline of a jtait of Gen. Butler's financial scheme from an examin ation of which you may have some idea of it as a whole. Bills have been introduced and debated iu the Senate, incorporating companies to construct railroads from Washington City, as a centre, to different points East, West, North and South. 1 hese proposed meas ures involve the Constitutional right of Congress to grant corporate privileges of this character. The friends of this legis lation claim, that Congress having the power under the Constitution to facilitate commerce between the States, has the power to incorporate railro&d companies. The opponents, on the other hand, contend that this prerogative belongs to the States alone, and that the privileges heretofore granted to such companies by the States would ultimately become worthless, if Congress incorporate rival companies. There will be considerable excitement in Congress, during the pendency of these bills, and much will be said pro and con. The House, on Wednesday, disposed of the resolution extending the protection of the United States to the Governments of Ilayti and San Domingo. Several amend ments were offered to include other inlands, among them "Ireland." The resolution and all pending amendments were laid on the table, by the emphatic vote of 120 to 3G. A bill for the organization of terri torial government for Alaska met a simi lar fate. The Senatorial elections to take pliee in several of the States, on Tuesday, the 19th inst., are looked for with necp inter est. As this letter will uot be published before the elections shall have transpired, it were useless to speculate in reference to them. There is a general interchange of con gratulations ".mciig Pennsylvanians in Washington, on ho auspicious selection of a Pennsylvania United States Senator. Gentlemen from other portions of the country, who never before heard the name of John Scott mentioned, make many in quiries of us who hail from the Keystone State, as to the character, ability and fu ture promises of one who has so suddenly loomed up from his retirement. I need not tell you of the proud satisfaction it af fords us, when v. 3 t .iuaiphautly point to him as a representative man of the great State of Pennsylvania. 1 tell these anx ious inquirers, that they must not think that our new Senator springs from an ob scure stock that he is not the first of his family who has represented Pennsylvania in the National Congress. I refer them to Lanman's Congressional Dictionary, where they will be informed that, forty years ago, John Scott, Sr., the father of our Senator, represented his District iu the House of Representatives of the Unit ed States. They find Representative Scott's term of office commenced with that of Andrew Jackson as President, of whose administration the former was an ardent and efficient supporter. Of the father of our John Scott, I can speak from personal knowledge, having had th good fortune of being the recipient of his generous kindness, when I was. a youthful "stranger in a strange land." My gratitude has never waned. I know ot no better tribute I can pay to his memory than by giving publicity to my feelings of siucere joy in contemplating tlie eievatiou ot bis son. ours. Cambria. Our State Legislature on Tuesday elec ted Hon. John Scott, of Huntingdon, IT. S. Senator for six years, commencing the 1th of March noj-t. Uold is iuoU'i a John II. Surratt is rro-rr in South America, but intends returning in a month. The Washington correspondent of the Bostoc Herald vouches for the following concerning the conspirator as being true in every particular : I learn from one of his friends that ho has prepared a full and explicit statement of the conspiracy hich resulted in the death of President Lin coln. In this he denies all knowledge of any assassination plot, bnt confesses freely that Booth and himself and others were in a plot to abdact Mr. Lincoln. He de clares that assassination was never spoken of to him, and was not agreed on by Booth and Payne UDtil the night it took place. He futhcr insists on the entire innocence of his mother, maintains that every effort was made to keep the abduction plot from her knowledge, and says she was simply the victim of unfortunate circumstances and the machination of the witness Welsh man, whose evidence, it will be remem bered, cau-ed Mrs. Surratt's conviction. Surratt proposes .o tell everything he knovrs, tho good, bad and indifferent, and make oath to it. He feels, it is faid, that it will bo so impartial and straight forward that it will be believed. There seems to be every prospect for a revival of business interests in the South ern S'ates. Thia is especially true of the seaboard States, a:.d of the rich cotton and sugar regions. The opportunities for in vesting in land arc excellent. The ter rible depression of the past few years have, of course, thrown many thousands of acres into the market, under the bankrupt ait and by the action of individual owners themselves. There u much greater will ingness to sell, both to Northern men and to the laboring population also. Judging by the ofBcial advertisements of lacd sales under bankruD'cv orders in the Virginia papers authorized to publish them, there are to-day at least five hundred thousand acres offered fir sale in this way alone. Millions of acres of good laud can be pur cVised now at small prices. Other inter ests arc al-o arousing themselves. Plan ters find thai with a smaller number of acres and mire thorough cultivation they do better than was the case in the old slovenly ttylo. Manufacturing enterprises are projected, and mining will be eciercd into vigorously in many sections whe-re nothiujr of that sort has ever been doue. Tick's Floral Guide.
