Yes, there is trouble—the air is full of

the benefit of tho Radicals. There is a
'terrible evil now threatening tharsaintly,
CoMititutiOn-saving piece •
of machinery known as the Democratic
party. It's leaders are becoming coerce
' nary, despotic, and corrupt. They pro- .
pose to centralize the authority of the
Government to an extent never dreamed
of by Republicans. They are going to
make the Government a huge railroad

THE Pitisburg tiazette, in a rdeent all.
ele oir the Great Railroad swhalu of last
winter, shows a phase of it which is new
to most persons. It says, "of the entire
nine. and one-half millions of dollars,
which were by - the operations lir the Om-
Mims.. bill to have been diverted from the
State 'treasury, the absolute control of
the disbursement of eight millions would
have fallen, by express arrangements of
all parthisTiiirerested, into the hands of
three of the most bitter and Unscrupu
lous partizans hi the Democratic oppo
sition. We name Messrs. F. W. llugheS,
of Schuylkill ; A. Wallace, of Clear-
field, and M B. Lowry, of Erie." There
can be but little doubt that The Uitzelle
is entirely correct in this matter. It
was generally conceded last winter
that Mr. Prank. Hughes was to
be President of the Jersey Shore,
Dine -Creek -and -- in \ truio Railroad
Company; and it is almost equally
certain that Mr. Wallace, although not
named in. the, charter of the Clearlleld
and Buffalo Railroad, carried that insti
tution about in his pocket. This would
have been a .. beautiful arrangement for
'the Democracy to have their two best
politicians constructing railroads with
funds derived from the sale of the State's
securities. They would n't have colo
nized any, or made the election of Con
gressmen, or members of the Legislature,
by a skilful manipulation of railroad'
hands, and coffee-stained naturaliza
tion papers—oh no, not they. Then
it would have been grand to operate
with a reserve fund of eight millions
of dollars in the coping campaign.
What fine speeches Mr. Wallace could
have written on- the corruption, hnbecil
ity and extravagance of Republican ad
ministrations, - and how many tine fellows
could have been paid handsomely for dis
tributing them. The thing was elegant
entirely. But, fortunately for the State
and the Republican party, the •timely
interference of the Governor spoiled this
little game. Whatever may be done in
the future, Messrs. Hughes and Wallace
will not have the handling of all this
ney for the present campaign.

OUR INDIAN POLICY.
The visit to the national capital of
several of the ablest and most powerful
Sioux chieftains, and their interviews
with the authoritiesgives.a new interest
to the : much discussed, but never settled,
Indian question. Thu practical policy
of the Government has been to change
the Indians from one reservation to an
other, as they were encroached upon by
the over advancing tide of emigration,
to conciliate them by subsidies, and to
punish them for outbreaks caused in
part by the ill-treatment of whites, or
the dishonesty of agents or traders.
This- policy has been unsatisfactory to
lioth parties. The more intelligent In
dian chieftains have seen in it the de
struction of their race. To the Govern
ment it has been a source of endless per-
Tdexity, and of great expense.
Now, -the extension of emigration to
the Pacific slopes, and the rapid occupa
tion of the northwestern territories,
Lave brought the question of our Indian
policy up inn new form. It is. perfectly
patent to observing minds that one of
three things must be done.
provide the Indians reservations In
which they may bee permanently kept
and protected,-or we must civilize o• ex
terminate them. We are shut up by the
circumstances developed to oneof theft
-propositions : Which -is•the most feasi
A,ticliberate purpose to exterminate
them would not only grate upon the
moral sense of the country, but it would
prove a terribly costly experiment.
There are now, according to the Indian-
Burcan's figures, 378,5,77 Indians in this
country, classified into tribes ; but - this
does not 'estimate. fully the wild tribes,
of which therd'aPit 'enough., to swell — the
total to 500,000. Experience has taught
us' that it costs terribly to kill Indians,
by means of soldiers. It is estimated
tliat we have 6puilLandlost-over—RBOp ,
000,000 during the last decade in Indian
wars. The Utah Indian war of 1853
cost 300 lives and $40,000,000. The In
dian Wars on the Pacific, coast have cost
not less than $300,000,000. . .
In - New Mexico, three campaigns
against the Navajoes cost $30,000,000.
The cost of that Territory has been not
less than $100,000,000, most of it from
Indian troubles. The Seminole war
cost $50,000,000 and fifteen years, with
_many_lives— In nearly- every—instance
some act of injustis9 iwrong done by
whites, ofliehils, orlhe reckless scum of
the border, have been the cause of the
outbreak. We have lost thousands 'of
lives and at least $1,000,000,000 in ex
periments in Indian,wars. At this rate
it will at the least cost twiceas much as
the present national debt to kill oil' the
Indians, not to speak of the inhumanity
of -the propo' t ion.
Our reservative policy, as hitherto
practices], has been peculiarly unfortun
ate. Senator Morton said one day re
cently, during the discussion on the Indian
appropriation bill, that the entire trouble
grevrout of uneertaintythe people be
lieved that reservation settlements cork
etitutod no title to' the Indian. -111 e

The propolsition to Civilize;.s - upposes
perntanont reservations; but with the
withdrawal, after a time, of-annuities.
The trouble thus far is that an intelligent
policy of Civilization lias,iiiwor been
adopted. The success of Superintend

to be entirely feasible! Even Rod Cloud
seems to be impressed with its necessity.
Their civilization once completed, and
they will cease to be dependents on the
Government, but will mix with the popu
lation of the country, and thus - cease to
be a source of anxiety or care. Aid&
froM its humanity, this policy has the
strong recommendation that .it will ul
thuately prove economical. We hope,
tlthrefore, that perpetual command, so
''ainfoying to the Indihn, to "move on,"
will never be..repeated, but that they:
