Hiixor.ri.i-, Oct. 4. 1801.
Mr. F.imtok : 1 do not often intrude my
views upon political matters upon the public,
but as zovernnients are or should be instituted,
not for the benefit of individuals or classes, but i r(Tb' tr.v i anl s, e 1 rm'nt oiTimrs who love the

; but one j Toper an.-wer, and that i-, that neeessity
and reason b,.t;i demand a change corr-spoi:in.;

this be corp-ft. then where, in what departments.
; shall the required change be elTected ? 1 urn
1st Let every salary be reduced to, at
l the sum at which it lorni- rlv stood. F-srcrh ncc
j has shown, and we Inmr that by the exercise of a
I icise pi rsnnal ifunnmy. that w..uld be suflicient
to meet all necessary expenses of family and sta-
tion, and f.r one moment to admit that His
I Majesty, whose fatherly interest in the prosperity
I of His government and people is well known,
i would not cheerfully concur in this measure,
though it might call for some personal self-denial,
or that the high officers of government would not
do so, I should feel would be most unjust to him
'2l I.-t every supernumerary be discharged
and every officeholder, high and low, perform
yir rsiinaHif as large a share of the labors of his
department as he can, because the officer is paid
for his labor as well as his responsibility. Where
the labors attached to an office is small, then the
salary should liear a just proportion to the laKir
and responsibility, r give the officer bis full
salary, where it can be done, and let work in
another department be furnished him, so that his
undivided time and eneigies may be devoted to
government laliors and interests. The principle
is, full but reduced py, and full work, or where
full labor cannot be given, (as there n.av be some
such cases from peculiar location,) tlirn pay pro
portioned to the labor. If it be said that suit
able officers cannot be obtained on such a basis. I

The number for August has been received. It is an
excellent number, and from an exchange we learn
the authorship of some of the articles. Trees in
Assemblage," is by Wilson Flagg; Miss Lucinda,"
I by Hose Terry ; Xatt Turner's Insurrection," by
Uev. T. W. Jiiggitisoti ; ' Concerning Veal," is by A.
K. II. 15eyd; "Reminiscences of Douglas," by J.
Howard, Jr.; "Our River," by Whittier; "Where
will the Rebellion leave us," by Judge Hoar of Mass.
Geo. W. Curtis writes the prose tribute to Theodore
Winthrop, and Thos. W. Parsons a poetical tribute.
This number is the first issued under Mr. Field's
editorial chaige. " Concerning Veal" is a racy and
instructive piece, which we commend to our confrere
of the Polynesian, whose style, according to this
writer, is decidedly Vatly. W'e commend the article
to all who think that their literary productions are
finished. The writer says :

well that the regularly enrolled soldiers, by their

last Potyiifsian, which in n long article rhiims
the credit of having brought alnnit the fhunge
which is soon to take place. We will not enter
into any wrangle regarding the question as to
who has been instrumental in effecting it, sim
plj remarking that the public has a mind of its
own, and will have its own opinion vn the
subject. We, with quite :is much "pleasure"
as our neighlr, congratulate the public on the
change, and the administration, that it has had
the moral courage to yield to the well-known
and often expressed sentiment of the pjblic
voice, and take a step in the right direction in
this matter. For nearly six years have we been
engaged in this one-sided contest with the gov
ernment, not merely for the sake of contest, but
asking on the ground of principle and right,
that the branch of industry in which we are
engaged might Ie fnx-1 from restraint. If, du
ring these six years we have successfully held
our own in this unfair competition, we can have
no misgivings als.ut the future, provided the
government press is placed on the same hafts with
ours, and learns to j ay its way and suj port itself
out of nothing but its iioni-st Ialrs.
All that we ask n w from the toverninent is,
that in any largains of sale or lease whieh it
may make, its terms may I-e ojt n, fair and hon
orable, not in favor of this one or that. We
will quote here the section of the Civil Code re
ferred to :

' Pufilic nrffssily is the only measure of pnhlir la
bor, and the public, niccssit y is the only just mea
sure of taxation.
! For any government to owe a .piyn debt is
at least doubtful if not decidedly la I policy, but
for a folic government to owe a foreign debt is
dangerous, by its liability to lead to compliea
! tions with stronger powers whose nibjeets or
citizens are its creditors, and which may in the
end le ruinous to its independence,
i It is unwise for any government to create a
debt to meet its ordtmary expense. These should
he based upon its ordinary income. The vast
: national debt of flroat I'.ritain was chiefly incur
' red for rrtraortlinartf expenses to carry on her
wars, in supporting her army and navy, and sub
sidizing continental wors. It is mainly, if not
' wholly, due to her own subjects, and I aj prehend
i that neither debtor nor creditor ever expect the
' payment of the principal. The stock held by her
own subjects, may, as some contend, lie an ele
ment of strength by the interest which it gives to
every stockholder iu maintaining the stability of
i the government ; but whatever thu effect of a
' domestic national debt may bo, it is clear that no
debt should le incurred for ordmnri exj-enses.
I Thev should Ik? covered by the ordinary income,
and here, whatever might Ik thought of a domes
tic debt for extraordinary improvements, still to
run iu debt for ordinary purpose, s-(-ems to
unwise, and should iet be done. Ways and
means should lie d'vis d to administer the irovern-
. ment without increasing the ublie debt. F.verv
what jublic and not private interests in my
judirinent demand, and with the kindest personal
feelings to any and all who might be affected hy
sueh a reform as I have imperteetly marked out,
I remain, Mr. Kditor, the nation's friend as well
as yours, truly, Uktkkxchjikxt.
P. S. I would not be understood as advocating a
pro-rata reduction of salaries. It may be found that
Some Hre not too l-irse even under present circum
stances ; but a single glance at facts, i7 seems to me,
shows conclusively that considerations of policy, pro
priety, justice, and I may add necessity, imperatively
call lor a reconstruction of the system of poverninent
compensation, upi n a more economical ha-ds, and to
some extent of government service, for of the latter it
may appear that there are labors which re desirable
and useful when there is an overflowing treasury
which are not indispensable, under less favorable
circumstance-. S'J-jI'o to si'Hii is doubtless as am
ple a salary in 1 1-6 1 as S400' was at the time when
the ministerial salaries were raised to this sum from
S3(HH, and the chief justiceship to SoOoO. It is
more for the treasury to pay now than the larger sum
was then. It is more for the tax-payers, the govern
ment supporters, to raise now than Sl'tiO was then.
