Tilings to bo Done Kow.
It is too often the case in both private
and public affairs that, some question con
cerning the future, rather than the imme
diate present, engages the attention and
occupies the thought, to. the injuring of
both present and future. . Men often look
forward trt old age, fretting over the dan
ger of grey hairs and poverty, now seeking
to'wrcet health from this, now from that,
Speculation or . enterprise, hoping to get
rich from some ini puis: YO effort, while-all
the time they have competence within
their reach by husbanding their present
resources, and thus reducing their expen
ses to a less amount than, their income.
Congress and the country are now explor
ing the labyrinths of fiuance to discover
how to bridge over the gulf of twenty
seven cents on .hundred that separates' a
dollar in greenbacks from a dollar I u goltl,
and eac'd new. explorer is the architect of
a new bridge, which almost all eyes but
his own' look upon a3 better fitted to be
trodden by the feet of fairies than by. a
nation struggling to restore full value to
its discounted currency.
TVhila this interesting discussion is go
ing on as to how we shall resume, we seem
to be daily drifting further and further
from resumption. Some seven hundred
millions of dollars in government bonds
are estimated to bo held in Europe, bought
at from fiity to seventy-five cents on the
dollar in gold, the bulk of which is wait
ing to be thrown upon our market so soon
a3 their gold par value can be realized or
demanded as , due and payable. A like
amount of railway and other stock bought
a like prices is also .waiting in the same
hands for a similar realization of one hun
dred cents where only fifty or seventy-five
were paid. Yet this volume of Indebted
ness against us is on the increase. Iu the
past year wo bought from Europe enorm
ously more than we sold to her, and must
send in paymexit of the balance to her
merchants, our government and other
bonds at seventy-three cents, gold value,
ODthe dollar, which ultimately we must re
deem in gold, dollar for dollar. Pray,
gentlemen of Congress, cannot this state
of affairs be changed changed note? Ev
ery dollar of debt in Europe must be paid
at once in gold, or in a promise in the
shape of a government bond or otherw-se,
finally to be redeemed in gold. Can we
not note, at once, begin to keep our gold
and our bonds at home ? Can we not now
begin to turn the balance of trade in our
favor and thus receive back the govern
ment obligations at about the same price
at which we parted with them. If an in
dividual were overwhelmed iii debt, aud
would discuss with his creditors when he
would pay dollar for dollar on hl3 discount
ed paper, yet aI the time were spending
more than the amount of his income, he
would be looked on as a fool.
Yet we are acting with but little more
wisdom than he. "We are getting less and
less able to resume, and will continue to be
until the balance of trade with Europe is
in our favor. If taxes bear too heavily on
our various industries, lighten them.
Better defer the. payment of every dollar
if the public debt than by its immediate
payment depress the industries of the
country. "Whatever is the lowest point to
which the public expenditures can be re
duced, to that point let them be brought.
"With the development of the wealth of the"
country will come increased, vastly in
creased, ability to discharge our obligations.
These things can be-done, can be done
now. If we do them, we may dismiss the
discussion of when wo will resume. We
will know that our wealth is increasing,
that our foreign obligations are diminishing
in Amount, that the gold and silver pro
duet of our mines is remaining at home
rather than paying for foreign importa
tions, and that the value of the greenback
is jrctting nearer that of gold and silver.
"With such a state, of affairs few men
would have the curiosity to debate when
we would resume. . Wehavo no desire to
see an era of speculation nor the country
flooded with a discounted currency.
The lavish expenditure of the public
money and the balance of trade with Eu
rops against us mean a financial crisis and
National bankruptcy. State and National
economy mean State and National pros
perity. The solution of this question is
impotant to the country, as well as to the
Republic. party. "When we can resume
and by wha means resumption shall bo
brought about a very difficult questions.
I3at to spend less til"" we make 13 a Prac"
tical proposition, not dhjcult of accomplish
ment to those who have tt desiri- It is
sale. It is healthful. It maes us more
and more able to resume. To'cse ad
ding to the national debt by purcha of
more territories or grant of further Joan
toambitiou3 enterprises is a thing that
can bo .dono now and easily. To ceaso
taxing the industries of the country for
' ' .il,'i't.
aught save the minimum of National and
State". fxpcndiftfrcncluding Hhe'inrelp11?- HiKHTSUTiBa. A;
on the national debt and excluding the
present payment of any of the principal,
can also be done now, and .easily: That
these things in whole or pari will be done,
Retrenchment aud Reform.
In the Senate on the 27th instant On.
Harry Whito offered the following egolur
tion, which Vas twice read : ... -.- .
"Resolved, That; tho. Committee on 'Re
trenchment and Reform b ani aro hereby
instructed to examine r;Q& inquire into the
manner of conducting business of the
several departmc-atg of the State Govern
ment, with a view to ascertain if the. ex
penses of a'flnn juration cannot be reduced,
and rer-qrt to the Senate by bill or other
jIr. "White said :
"Mr. Speaker, indulge me a brief ex
planation of the purpose of this resolution,
A few days since a resolution was intro
duced into the Senate requiring the Clerk
to report the .names of the officers of the
last session of the Senate and the House.
On my motion, it was referred to the Com
mittee on Retrenchment and Reform, with
authority to inquire into and report as to
alleged abuses of extravagance in the dis
tribution of the patronage-of this body.
At tho time of its introduction, I. thought
the resolution wise subsequent reflection
has convinced me of its propriety. ' It is
with great pleasure, on behalf-of the com
mittee, I announce a determination to dis
charge this duty without fear, favor or af
fection. It may' be the Senate has power
only to inquire into its own proceedings in
this particular., It is gratifying to know
investigation demonstrates the Senate has
been consistent with itself, and as econom
ical as possible to conduct it3 necessary bus
iness. The Senate has nothing to shrink
from in the past, and certainly everything
to be proud of in the present session. The
number of our employees is strictly by the
law passed in the interest of retrenchment
at tho last session. This has not been vio
lated in the slightest particular. So far
as regards the pasting and folding of doc
uments, our constituents expect from us,
a3 an exhibition of our proceedings, we are
as economical as possible. The whole of
our pasting and folding will not exceed
about two thousand seven hundred dollars
possibly. While this is true of the Senate,
it may be well to enlarge the powers of the
committee and extend over a wider field.
The resolution before' you authorizes your
committee to examine the manner of con
ducting business in the departments of the
State. Government, to see if it is possible
to curtail expenses of the administration
of the Stato Government. "We all know
that a condition of war always increases
expenses on the administration, more than
they formerly were, and that, when the ex
penses of an administration have been in
creased, it is exceedingly difficult to reduce
them to a former standard. ' It is only by
assuming authority on the part of the Leg
islature that any reduction can be made,
if it is possible to make any." .Rut I am
prompted more especially to offer this res
olution from a statement which I observed
in the report of the Adjutant General for
the present year. I observed that in the
statement of disbursements the Adjutant
G eneral writes : 'Last year the total amount
of disbursements was $33,980 32. This
year it amounts to $34,894. Of this
s-.. -v.--- -
amount, however, $6,000 was special appro- j
priation for unsettled claims that had ac
cumulated in previous years. About $15,
000 was paid to the military State agent
at "Washington, and the State historian's
office, which reduces it to $13,000, as the
actual expenditures of his office. This in
cludes salaries of clerks and employees at
the arsonalr postage, express charges, fuel,
and all incidental expenses. I feel con
strained to say, it is too smalL Then, by
reference to the abstract statement at the
end of the Adjutant General's report, I dis
cover the different ilems of this aggregate
expend'ture given. I discover also an al
lusion to the expenses of the State Histo
rian's Department. Now, Mr. Speaker,
although the war has passed, we discover
that we still have an Adjutant General's
Department, which, it seem's'to me, is in
curring an extraordinary expense. It is
occurring to the minds of many that the
excesses of that department, and possibly
of other departments of the State govern
ment, might be reduced. I do not know
How this is; but it certainly will save the
Finance Committee of the Senate great la
bor if the Committee on Retrenchment and
Reform should examine into this matter
carefully and faithfully, and report by bill
or otherwise to the Senate, as to the state of
tho case. That Is the object which prompts
this resolution, and I trust it will pass."
The resolution was adopted.
Ate Pilccs Falling?
In the matter of the reduction of prices
within a few months past, and particularly
during tho month of January, we find an
eshibit of market reports in one of our
exchanges, giving quotations cf flour for
November 30th, December 31st, and Jan
uary 29th, showing a marked falling off;
also quotations of wheat, rye and oats for
the days specified, with a like result ; also
quotations of coru and hay for said days
with a like result- The paper which pre
sents these tables says : "From a most
careful examination of the items embraced
above, together with many others, a con
viction was induced that as the bread
stuffs, the very essentials of life, bad so
fallen, tho provkious, the sugars, teas,
coffees, rices, meats, &c., must inevitably
follow in their wake and also come down.
The law of supply and demand, in regard
to these provisions, modified as it is by
thiJ operations of the same law in regard to
othe articles of food, would alone produce
the bpy result."

There are enough of the members liviog

Central Park is tho place for them io. dry

throw irud on the lider. The emal-er
boys use the three wheelers, propelling
them with the handjaod guidiug with the

are bu'it with one wheel io front of the
other. The lider sits on a saddle wr-;eh
connects the two wheels, with the float
wheel between his legs. The axis of the
front wheel is formed into cranks a l. both
ends, pointing in oppos'ip direciions. On

alternately the velocipede is propelled.
The first question on seeing one is "why
