(and thesCommittee, ton, created by a Be.-

tbe_removal of-this S. M. Clarke.
It seems from this statement that in
looking about the count=y to find an hon
est, faithful and competent person to con-
duct the issue 'of an amount of paper
money, shch,as no - tuition-ever before - put
in circulation, Lincoln could find no;
body better than Mr. S.IM. Clarke, whosis
official misconduct had just been etpOsed
in a Congressional report. Here, then, w
have a man whose dereliction_ tohis dut
in a public position had been clearly es•\
tablisb i ed,.placed by air. Lipcoln in anoth- 1
er, poll more responsible. Under "his
system," he says, that he "would. be detec
ted in an over-issue in forty-eight hours."
In other words, the only check upon Mr.
Clarke, is Mr. Clarke's "system." A thief
allowed to forge his own fetters and to ad
just the lock of the jail; might say that he
was held in durance by. "his system:" but
we:suspect the fetters wold have a con
venient flaw in in them, and that the lock .
would not refuse to turn uude4'''thu pres
sure of a secreted nail. Wheni:Mr. Clarke
locked himself within the bounds of hon.
aty with that "system," we wonder if he
didn't take the precaution to provide him
self with means offelling - out. -.Did he
throw away the.key
But the most wonderful
this man's career has been the halcyhood
and contempt, even for itppearance - s, to say
nothing of common decency, which he
bas displayed in his immoralities. We
prefer to adopt the language of the. Com e
mittee on, this subject.. Referring to a
mass of affidavits in their Iposaession,
madoby young ;Vernon who had been em
ployed in the Printing Bureatti-t r hey say :
These affidavits disclose a maps of ire-,
morality and profligacy, the more atro
cious as these women were employees of
Clarke, hired and paid by him 'with the
public money. These women seem to have
been seleited in the Printing Bureau for
their youth and personal attractions.—
Neither the laws of God, or of man, the
'nst 4 itutiob of the 'Sabbath, nor eentmon
decencies of We, seem, to have been re
spected _by Clarke in , his conduct. with

of wllich - la impossible without violating
decency. Letters go .thence arranging to

The statements of the 'committee are
more than borne but by the affidavits re..
ferred to, Aid which are now - iserortrus,
but they are of such a scandelona 'nature
that - witigannot print them in our eel
emus. A person named Henderson Teems
to have been partner of Clarke!ii mid
night orgies; while their - victims were in
varibly yoUng women selected from the
Printing Bureau, mill shown by the ; sworn
statements - 45 f Miss Ella Jackson, Miss
Jennie Germon and As Laura Duvall.
This Henderson• was one of Clarke!,
official deputies. It was proved before the
Committee that this.pair of worthies had
under their care at a single tizito sixty four
titillions of &ars, ready forlisik, and without
anything' in the world bu their own hon
esty and virtue to direct thoni in the dis
charge ,of their official duties.. These
trtorn statements of these young woman,
and others, were laid before Secretary
Chase by Mr. Jordon;-Solicitor of the Tiea
sum who had been desired to investigate
the matter. In presenting the evidence
he said :
I have* further, in obedience to your or
der, called before me most of the persons
whose affidavits are herewith transmitted,
and made-Auch other inquiries as it ;has
been in my power to make touching the
matter stated in the affidavits, and the
result is an entire conviction that the most
material of these statements are true, par
ticularly those :oclntained in the affidavits
of Ella Jackso n,Jennie Germon and Laura
After reading these things, the, *5-xcla
mation of every honest man would be :
"Of course this man ;was removed imme
diately—but have his 'official accounts
been investigated ? Has he been arrest
ed?" These and a thousand like queitions
would rise to the lips of an honest man
on readillt the shameful' story of this
man's debaucheries. What will be his
surprise then, when he is told Clarke
has not been removed at 'all 2 Ho still
holds hie place, still prints his .tens and
hundreds of millions monthly, still enjoys
the unbounded confidence of Mr. Lincoln,
and has the 'same share ikthe affections
of Mr. Fessenden that he had in those of
Mr. Chase. Let the thinking, honest peg•
plc) of this country reflect on these things.

remember that Mr. Lincoln, fully aware
of these things, has retained 'this man in

[Frew the Ridicule ZZeitheee, Oct. IT.]
Some doubt remains as to the political
complexion of Pennsylvania. The press
of the United States has become so radi
crally mendaCious that it- is impossible to
put trust in the tryst accounts of an event
so publio and_ plain as the result, of an :
election.. Sonia days may yet. 'elapse -be , :
fore certitude is attainad. But we enter
tain strong hopes that the. Republicans
have done what they seemed at first to
have dime, and confers a deep desire that
the present result may foreshadow the re
election of Abraham Lincoln for Abrams

will appear soon after the meeting of- the
Confederate Congress. The- enemy talk of
the despotism which drags conscripts into
the Southern armies, and forces old men
and children into the diltches, but the' des

Butlfor the incentives supplied by Mr.

unable to levy great armies, and the forces
in the field might have fought with little
ergy or restoration. The popular Ma
,,jority might have been disposed, at the
first soft words from the enemy; to re.
nouns* the Southern cause and return to
the enjoyment of repose, prosperity and
dishonor. Mr. Lincoln has prevented such;
a continaqncy, and relieved the South of
all these dangers—by a course of policy
