THE DRAWBACK FRAUDS.
ft'tfsw upecies of fraud has beon devised in
that hot-bed of corruption, the New York
Custom House, by which the nation has
Already been robbed by one gang of rascals
of $700,000. By tho collusion of corrupt
officials, the aid of a complaisant notary
public, and the services of a Washington
claim agent, rlie sum named was obtained
during the years 18JC, 18G7, and 188 on
fraudulent claims for drawback based on
the law providing that when goods on
which an internal revenuo tax has bsen
paid are exported, this tax shall be
refmnded by the Government. We pub
lished the particulars of this nefarious
transaction in The Telegraph of yesterday.
The array of evidence appears strong enough
to secure the conviction and punishment of
the leading offenders; but it will be impos
riblo to avoid a constant repetition of frauds
of much greater importance while the nation
persists in the policy which concentrates
th: bulk of the Custom House business
of the whole country at New York. The
magnitude of the transactions in that estab
lishment and the haste with which they are
conducted render it impossible to insure a
watchful supervision of the conduct of all the
clerks and other appointees, and the most
faithful and vigilant of Collectors cannot pro
tect the Government against the innumerable
schemes which are concocted to plunder it.
The true remedy is to diffuse the Govern
mental transactions appertaining to foreign
commerce fairly over the country, entrusting
the Custom House in each leading city
with the ascertainment as well as the
collection of duties on all goods brought
from abroad by its importers, whether
they are first landed on American
soil at New York or elsewhere. An equitable
distribution of this business would afford all
the Custom Houses time and opportunity to
examine goods, invoices, entries, and certifi
cates thoroughly, and bring the transactions
at New York within manageable limits.
Until this reform is effected tho nation must
expect a continuation of a thousand species of
rascality in the great Wall street hot-bed of
corruption. Many millions of gold revenue
are lost annually in that office, and these
losses will never be materially diminished while
it remains unnecessarily overcrowded with
THE TRESBYTEIUAN REUNION.
The consolidation of tho Old and New Scihuol
branches of the Presbyterian Church w.is
finally accomplished at Pittsburg yesterday
by the Assemblies convened to officially cuuut
up the votes of the various Presbyteries on
the reunion proposition. Every New School
Presbytery had voted affirmatively, and a larg3
majority of the Old School Presbyterians
also approved reunion. By this action the
combined Church presents an aggregate of
M Synods, 25G Presbyteries, 422!) ministers,
and 431,4015 members. A hope was
also expressed that at no distant
period all the other branches of
Presbyteriainsm would be . combined in
the same organization; and as this appears to
be the tendency of the age, the fullilmeut of
this desire is not improbable. The formal
consolidation was made in a very affecting
and impressive manner, and it is to bo fol
lowed up by an effort to raise a largo sum of
money as a thank-offering. A General As
sembly of the united Church is to be held in
this city in May next.
The Spaniards are still in a quandary about
Tdling their vacant throne. Those who are
anxious to assume the purple we not want ed,
and those who have hitherto figured as the
most popular candidates have shown a
modest hesitation about accepting that is re
markable. The young Duke of Genoa has of
late taken the precedence of the other aspi
rants, and his chances for succeeding to
what was once the proudest throno in Europe
appear to be very promising. A new obsta
cle is now thrown in his way, however, by tho
opposition of his mother, who objects to
his assuming the responsibilities and incur
ring the dangers of the position. It is some
thing new for the mother of a genuine Euro-
nean prince to make an objection of this
kind, and it is a significant wgn of the times,
indicating that king-craft is losing some of its
attractions, or that it is becoming a more
difficult business than it was at one time. It
is evident that the Duke of Genoa, if he ac
cepts the throne of Spain, will, to use a vul
garism, have a hard road to travel; and his
mother proves herself to be a sensible woman
by refusing to allow herself to be so blinded
by her ambition as not to see the peril in
which her son will bo placed. We expect
that, after all, the Spaniards will finally be
obliged to adopt our suggestion, and persuade
some smart Yankee to come over and king it
for them. m " '
lyvvnurTtrATION OF THE BEADS
Ob V1TY DEI'j
1 1 tt iri?rnT'iLi
v.Mtml7 afternoon a caucus of the Repub
lican members of Councils was held, for the
purpose of nominating the heads of the city
departments. There whre several contestants
for the positions of Chief Engineer of the
Water Works and Agent of the Girard Estate,
and a very decided effort was made to oust
the present incumbents. The gentlemen
who now manage those departments, how-
to overcome all opposition, and the entire
list of officers as at present constituted were
renominated on the first ballot. The nomi
nees are Mahlon If. Dickinson, Chief Com
missioner of Highways; James Work and,
Hiram Horter, Commissioners of Highways;
Frederick Graeff, ' Chief Enginoer ' of the
Water Works; Charles E. i Smith, Superin
tendent of the' Girard Estate; Samuel 8.
Cavin, Agent of the Girard Estate; and Jona
than II. Pugh, Commissioner of Markets and
These gentlemen during the time they have
boen in office . have performed their duties
in a manner entirely satisfactory to the
public, and the action of the caucus yesterday
in renominating them was a proper recogni
tion of their services, and it will meet the
general approval of the llepublican citizens
of Philadelphia. . All of these departments
are important, and their proper administra
tion is a matter that concerns every citizen.
When the right men get into such offioes
they ought to be kept there, and as tho nomi
nations made yesterday are equivalent to
elections, we have an assurance that for the
coming term at least jho business of these
municipal departments will bo conducted in a
proper and acceptable manner.
Or all the terms used in the English lan
guage to express an idea, tho word "cheek"
is, perhaps, the least understood and tho most
abused. Ability, confidence iu one's own
powers, understanding, and absolute talent,
are all usually placed under the one common
head of "cheek;" and yet there is really as
great a difference between tho real meaning
of the terms as there is between darkness
Talent, as usually understood, is a culture
of those ideas engendered by doep study and re
search. Tact is a natural gift with which
some men are endowed by their Creator, and
differs from talent, because it grasps all things
as it finds them, and makes use of them,
while talent is pondering over the probabili
ties. Tact is the natural bud of a thriving
plant; talent is the artificial flower of a plant
which, but for the care bestowed upon it,
would droop and be crushed before it had
vitality enough to make itself heard. Tact is
the element which makes the really great
man. Talent is the faithful servant.-
"Cheek" is a talent. It comes from culti
vation, and is generally found where the
ground is least fruitful. Confidence is most
usually put under the head of "cheek," and
yet it is vastly different from it. "Cheek"
will force its way to places where it is not
wanted, and when unmasked will be kicked
out for its trouble. Confidence demands its
light to be heard, and will win plaudits and
encouragement from those of understanding
for its unceasing watchfulness, cave, and
Cheek is the natural production of igno
rance and want of understanding, but is sel
dom, if ever, innate in anybody. As an ex
ample, or rather as a hiniile, wo take George
Francis Train as a man of "cheek."' He is
blustering, noisy, and, after' nil, carries no
mental weight witn niui. Wc could easily
select a living simile, of tho other idea, but
it will answer the purpose to simply state
that IJnfus Choate was au excellent ex
ample of the man of tact, or confidence.
Added to his natural taot, he had cultiva
tion, and what his natural abilities pointod
out he invariably carried to a successful
conclusion. Wo select these two namos
Train and Choate because they' are both
known to our day and generation.
"Cheek" never made Astor, Peabody,1 or
Girard the men they were. Confidence, tact,
did ! "Check" made Uarnum, and countless
other men like him, who have or will sink to
tho grave without leaving a mark behind
them, save of their deceit and humbuggery.
Among the statesmen of the present age,
Douglas and Lincoln were tho men of tact
and confidence. It is said that questions fre
quently came before Mr. Douglas of which he
was almost entirely ignorant, and yot we find
him grasping the line of argument and mas
tering the subject while still in course of con
sideration, and finally expressing himself
upon it as clearly and as learnedly ns those
who gave it a lengthy considera
tion. Mr. Lincoln , never pretended
to understand a subject 'which he
really knew nothing about, but every man,
woman, and child in tho land knows that no
sooner was the matter placed before him than
he would select his own analysis, and nine
times out of ten bis grouuds woro secure.
He, like Douglass, was confident, but no
man ever saw in cither, anything that could
be called "cheek."
Nowhere than in politicians is "cheek"
more plainly visible, in fact, it would ap
pear, and no doubt is, one of the prime ele
ments of success. Tho art of fawning and
playing the lickspittal is the natural aacom
poniment of "cheek;" and there again it dif
fers from contidonce, because tho man who
is confident of his own ability never stoops
to cultivate the : acquaintance ot a man
who does not himself desiro the J ac
quaintance. ' "Cheek" is submissive and servant-like
in the presence of those who employ
him; but he is heartless, and when tho for
tune of his present master is on tho wane, he
quickly flies to tho other side, and adds his
kick to those already being administered to
the man who, up to this tjino, has been his
friend. Confidence is always manly. Confi
dent that he is right, he fears no man, nnd is
the same before your face that he is behind your
back. "Cheek" will Hatter and cajole; confi
dence expresseshis opinion, when asked, plainly
and without deceit. But few men are iiu
pervious to flattery it is far more pleasant
than a blunt opinion, no matter how true the
opinion may be and this is one reason , why
meman of "cueeli is generally lue moso sua
ccssfia man iu the politioid arena. The pub
lie, the K00d, dear, easily-gulled publio loves
flattery uivcli better than an individual does,
although itSfcflfecta are not so visible, and Uio
man who pampers the publio by telling them
that they ore all good people, without regard
U WUtC, tjc., JJ rjubjjj; wjnt njyj
man who points out the wrong doings will
lose. ."'.. '
The confident man ia not a "cheeky" man.
The elements that go lo make tip the one
cannot be found in the other. - The one is
entitled to our greatest respect, the other to
bur most unmitigated scorn and he who is
accustomed to use the term "cheek" should
first carefully analyze his ihan ' before he ap
plies it, or may find, when too late to mend,
that he has cruelly wronged a fellow being to
whom society, and perhaps himself, owes
much that is really good and commendable.
