THE EARTHQUAKE YEAR.
'rhe year 1863 has- been marked by a
greater disturbance of the crust of the earth
than any It„ , erti within the century, and it will
stand out as memorable, in this respect for
many years to come, unless, inde - k; the the
ories of the Adventists and other destruction-
Isis prove tree, and each sucecedhig year
shall show still more violent agitations and
eruptions until the final catastrophe sha

Sandwich. !Islands, in California, in South
America, in New Jersey, in England, Ire
land, in Africa, and iu Turkey. .:11te--con

Goy. flvinv has issued the usual procla
mation announcing the members of Congress
elected, in which he includes the names of
Moffat and Reading, the. two Democrats in
Philadelphia, whom it was proposed for a
thne,to exclude from their seats. In regard
hi-the Twenty-first district, composed of the
mmties of Indiana, Westmoreland and Fay-
cute, be says no such returns of elections
have been received by the Secretary of the
Cinrunonwealth :IS would, under the election
laws, anthorire him to proclaim the name of
any person as having been returned and
Maly elected. Two separate certificates, one
certifying Hon. John Covode to be elected,
and the other certifyiag Henry D. Foster to
be elected, have been issued ; hence - the
Governor has thrown the respoNiibility of
deckling the race upon the Forty-first Con
gress, whose decision it will be easy to con
jecture, Mr. Foster has a majority of the
- votes, hut Covode set up charges of "fraud,"
and induced one of the election officers to
refuse his signature to the certificate signet
by the two other members of the hoard. Co
code's plea is that more vott., were cast in
one district than it is entitttt, the base:
lessness of whieli is seen in the fart that the
poll - ert.st in November does not vary hay a
, loten front that cast in October.
Ttrc rruirc have not forgotten the fuss ,
that Was made about illegal naturalization
paperE in Philadelphia before the election.
It was claimed that tko.se is.sued by the Su
preme Court should not be received, anti an
imbecile Judge of that body was found will
ing to pervert his office to the disgraceful end
of promoting party objects. A test case was .
made up, and here is the.result, as• related
by the Philadelphia Age:
"On the :34.1 of November, Patrick Mull
hone, who had been naturalized by the Su
preme Court in October, voted at one of the
precincts in this city. The Radical Inspec
tor, acting upon the Read proclamation, or
ered a police officer to arrest him for illegal
voting, which was done. The case was re
cently heard before Judge Ludlow on a writ
of habeas corpus, who decided that the seal
of the Supreme Court was conclusive on the
officers, and discharged the prisoner. This
is a prompt and proper vindication of the
elective franchise, and shows Judge Ludlow
to be a lawyer, and not a sensational
qan on the bench." • ,k parti

TIIE CITY OF NEW TOME
The Radical press, owing to the immense
najority which the city of New York . gives
to the Democratic ticket, have sought to cre
ate the impression that the elections there
arc conducted in a loose and irregular man
ner, and that fraud and villainy are perpe
trated to a greater extent than in any other
place in the United States. Nothing could
be more false. In the first place, while near
ly all of the large cities have been disgraced
by riots upon a large - scale on election day,
which frequently prevented voting, no such
thing ever happened in the great metropolis!
No ballot-boxes have ever been smashed in
New' York as in other cities, and no organ
ized ruffianism has deprived thousands and
tens of thousands of citizens of the elective
franchise as in Beiltimore, in Philadelphia
and Louisville. There elections have always
been exceedingly quiet and peaceful. For
some years the city has been divided into
nearly three hundred election districts, con
taining on the average about five hundred
voters each. In these small districts, consti
tuting only a few blocks, almost every man
is known to the challengers•of the respective
parties. In addition, no man can vole if lie
does not register his name on four certain ap
pointed days. If he is sick on those days, or
absent from the.city, or on account of the
crowd at the registering office in hia district
is unable to register in time, he loses his vote,
and can not swear it in afterward, although
he is knoitn by every one to be a legal voter.
A 4 the same time, the pdlice of the city are
all Republicans, appointed by a commission,
who receive their authority from the Gover
nor, and they watch the polls so closely that
any one who attempted fraud would be ar
rested immediately. ' The election wards, as
in our own States, contain meanbers of both
parties, and each side invariably has its
shrewdest men for challengers and poll com
mittees. Under these severe restrictions, not
only illegal votes are kept out, but many legal
voters are derpived of the privilage of cast
ing their ballots. !Me Democratic majOrity
in New York has, therefore, been pre-emi
nently an honest one, or, - nailer, it has al
ways been less than the real sentiments of
the people. Although the districts are small
—there'being only rmo votes in each, as we
have stated--voting is eitremely slow, in con
sequence of New York requiring several bal
lot-boxes for the different offices, instead of
all the names being upon one ticket, as in
Ohio'and other States, and then put into one
box. When Lincoln was elected, in 1864, it
is believed that, as the polls closed at sun
down in the city, fully 15,000 men, mostly
Democrats, who desired to vote for McClel
lan and Pendleton, were excluded. Since
then More districts have been created, and
better facilities afforded to the people. New
York never has polled any such v to as she
is — entitled to by her vas po lation. It
never exceeded 160,000. i delphia has
nearly reached that number, ith not two
thirds the population, while States like New
Hampshire have approximated to it, with
about one-third of the people. New York
has more than 1,000,000 inhabitants, and in
proportion to Philadelphia, shOuld have
polled one hundred and sixty-five thousand
votes instead of one hundred and fifty-five
thousand. The Democratic Majority in New
York City, for President, is but sixty thou.
stand—one thmisand less than it was last year,
on a greatly increased vote. Does any body
suppose that frauds, about to the same extent,
are perpetrated every year.
OUR FINANCIXL TROUBLES
The extraordinary Stringency in the money
market at this time, both in the East and
West, and the scarcity of currency, the diffi
culty of obtaining it even upon the best of
names, at the most extraordinary-rates of in
terest, show the wisdom of the Democratic
policy which has called for an enlargement
of the circulating medium. Had our sugges
tions been complied with a year ago, we
should have escaped the financial vice in
which the country is now compressed. Hun
dredi and thousands of merchants and other
traders, who are now upon the eve of bank
ruptcy, would have been.in easy circumstan
ces. We should have tided over the diffi
culty which now besets us, and which threat
ens afinancial panic and convulsion.
The great bugbear of the Radicals for the
last year or.two has been that money would
be too plenty. All their fears have been in
that direction, and not in that where the
real danger! laid—in contraction. Contrac
tion is a most expressive word. It is the
word by which we delineate the process by
which the monster serpents crush and de
stroy their - victims. The people have been
in. the folds of a merciless anaconda, which
has gone on gradually tightening thein until
destruction Is imminent. We don't think,
lust at present, that there is any body who
considers that money is too plenty, or fears
that it will be too plentl.

York Tribune k deserving the especial at
tention of Denmemts In every portion (if the

Ise measured and valued, if that ever is done,
a large share of the credit of our victory will
have to be given to Mr. Nast, the celebrated
artist. His political cartoons have been the
most effective election documents ever pub
lished m America."
The channel through which these "most
effective election documents" find their -, way
to the pnblic is Harper's Weeklyi--Paper
which has the effrontery to style itself a
"Journal of Civilization," yet fills its col
umns from week to week with appeals - of
bigotry, passion and - prejudice,, such as
might be more properly addressed to the un
derstanding of a Comanche than the culti
vated sense of a Caucasian. The political
pictures designed by Nast are the most
prominent feature of the Weekly, and so
completely 'give the tone to its pages that the
entire sheet may lie fairly said to have be
I come a common sewer of political Natt-iness.
No words could have conveyed more malig
nant, infamous, andillsgranethl slanders upon
the larger portion of the Anierican people,
than have been Concentrated in the cartoons
'with which this fellow Nast has disfigured
the paper referred to during the 'late cam
, - -
paien. r We have reason to believe that a
very liberal percentage of the support of .the
Harper's Publications has been drawn from
members oftheDernocratiC party, who have
thus contrasiye(l the means for promulga
ting shyster* on themselves. It is well re
membered,, that' a about the commetteement
of the rebellimak , liMpeed Weekly was filled
with engravings a an entirely oppostte chart
actor; addressed specially to the prejudices of
Southern men. When the war cut off the
publishers from communication with 'their
Southern patronS, they executed a soiner
sault as sudden as any ever accomplished by
the New York Herald, and from that' day
have devoted themselves, with untiring per
severance and marvelous ingenuity,- to the
task of maligning the SOuth and itg people,
and the Dethocracy of the North, by tarns.
It is time that Democrats should assert their
self-respect by expelling the filthy publica
tions of these mercenary Hessians of litera
ture from their homes and business houses,
and 'wherever else their influence extends.
There are several other illustrated papers
which compare-to advantage in literary and
artistic merit with any of the Harpers' pub
lications, and have this important and com
mendable quality, that they seek to amuse
and instruct their readers without slandering
any portion °ahem.
THE fl FILE SEEKING MANIA.
The amts Better of ArternUs Ward, de
scribing his interview with Mr. tincoln soon
after the election of that too-good natured
man, is still in the mind of thr public. Of
fice seekers filled the room, tugging at Lin
coln's coat tails, and thrusting recommenda
tions into his face, Mike seekers poured in
through the window, and sonic particularly
pertinacious individual., unable to force their
way through - these avenues, came tumbling
down the chimney. From the accounts
which reach us from Washington, the scenes
thus caricatured (not very much either) seem
likely to be repeated, with the President
elect, Grant, as the central figure.:. We aro
to have another of those insane quadrennial
scrambles for office which cause European
nations to wonder at and, we fear, to despise
us, and our system of Government.
What is the cause of this - mania? The sal
aries attaching to our govennnental offices
are not large. As a general rule, the force of
character and intellect which enables a man
to secure ofliee would, if directed into the
channels of regular business, secure him much
larger legitimate rewards. And yet we see
men of talent and influence, not only joining
in a humilating scramble for the thousand
and one ottces, at the disposal of the Feder
al Executive, but we see them spending large
sums of money during the campaign, in the
hope of attaining their object.
This fact is strongly suggestive of fraud.
It is not the legitimate rewards of office, we
fear, that prompts the lavish expenditure and
tremendous persistency of politicians to se
cure office; It is that which is mildly termed
"pickings," but which is really "stealings,"
that is the main incentive to these efforts.
There is not a more striking proof of the de
moralization and corruption of our civil ser
vice, than thi4 dkgraceful rush of office-seek
ers which threatens to overwhelm the suc
cessful candidate after a Presidential elec-
ALMOST simultaneous with the earth
quakes on floc American Continent, an erup

to be overwhelmed and devastated and the

The President's Salary.
The proposition is being revived, in view
of Gen. Grant's accession to the Presidency
of the "Jutted States, of increasing the salary
of the office fromits present amount; $.5,000,
to $lOO,OOO or thereabouts. We hope noth
ing of the kind 'will be done, or even seriou
ly considered by Congress.
In the first place, the $25,000 now allowed
by law is not the whole of the money paid by
the nation toward the President's private ex
penses. He has a house free of rent warmed
and kept in repair for hini without charge.
The furniture of the house is also provided,
and in one way or another his servants'
wages are paid, out of the public treasury.
His garden, from which his table to a great
extent is supplied, is °taken care of by a pub
lic gardener. In addition, every little while
extra appropriations are made for special
purposes. 'faking all things together, the
President really receives much nearer $50,-
000 than 25,000:
As a matter of filet, the salary now made
has always proved amply sufficient. Mr.
Fillmore, Mr. Pierce, and Mr. Buchanan made
•handsome savings while in office. Abraham
Lincoln saved some $60,000 out of his four
years' allowance, and J'ohnson will retire
with a nearly equal amount. It can easily
be seen that when nothing is to be met but
marketing bills, keeping a pair of horses, and
the cost of a few entertainments, $25,000 will
go a long way.'—.N. 8”n. •

JASPER, TENN., N0V.41, 1808.
The third of November was a beautiful
day, the sun shining out warm and clear,
and not a cloud visible from horizon to
horizon. The polls were to open at ten
o'clock.' Not long before that, a considerable
crowd of various colors had assembled in the
streets, and more were visible coming from
north, east, south and west. Yonder comes
an old, gray-headed white man—in politics
he goes under the genuine name of rebel, for
be sympathized with the Sonth in her futile
struggle. He approaches a little crowd of
disfranchised, and is saluted with, "Well,
Uncle Billy, how are you going to vote?"
This interrogatory was a "goak," for every
one knew that the old man couldn't vote..
But lie answers : "Oh, of course I can't vote
at all, but if I could put one in for Grant, I
would, sure. We want peace. Grant is a
good man, and as a good democrat as I want,
