A Utter wrilUn by Lord Macaulay
in 1857, and now pnbliahed for the
firat time in Harper' Monthly, contains
the following paHKe: ''It ia quite
plain that your government will never
be able to restrain a dirtrceeed and
dircoutmted majority. For with you
the majority ia tiie government, and
has the rich, who alwnysiftemlnoHty,
absolutely ti iti mercy. The day will
-co rue when in the Stale of New York
a multitude of people, none o' whom
hqt hal more than half a btcik'a t,
or expects to have more thnn half a
dinner, will cbooee a Legislature. Is
is j o's ble to doabt what BO't of a
Iefcislature will be cfcown.
I seriously apprehend that you will,
in a Jice such season of adversity, do
things which will prevent proaperity
from returning. There will be, I fear,
spoliation. Ihe spoliation will in
creased the diBiro'B. TliedistrtuH will
.produce frh spollntinn. There is
nothing to stop you. Your constita
tion is all sail and no anchor. As
1 said before, when a society has en
tered upon this dowuward progress,
either civilizition or liberty mum per
ish . Either same Cie'ar or Napoleon
will seise the reins of government, or
your Kepublio will be as fearfully
plundered anil laid waste -by barba
rians in the twectiith century as the
Jtornau empire was in tbe filth.

perialiri on my desk, imperial, or king

ing you in the Empire City of the re
public, 1 aik the question, "Are We
to Have an Empire?" This is quel
tion whluh atrikea home to every
American citizen. Before proceeding
further, permit ma to add, en pattanl,
Ui at I do not put this interrogatory to
the reader in any partisan senna
Leaven forbid! It is a quee ion of loo
much gravity: it is a question which
tises supremely above all politics j it ia
a question with which patriots and
statesmen only should deal. ltidfs,
I am aware, as a faithful reader of
your most excellent journal, that all
lolitirs are strictly and properly ex
cluded from its well-filled columns.
Of tuyself, 1 may remark that 1 am
not a politician in any sense of tbe
word. Having lout all hope in either
of the RHRt parties (Democra'lo or
Kepublioan) to save our gradually
uccutnbing llbertita, I have not caat
ballot for President in many years,
nd perhaps may never do so again.
How, gentlemen, without knoaing
whether these lines will ever find ven
tilation through your illuminated cor
unius or not, 1 proceed to lo'.tcrat tbe
interroK,itoty : "Are we to have Bit
empire" This queolion is growing
more and more practical witti every
Jtnotth andvtarcf age added to the
life of the hepnblic. The re dicing
poitlon of t':e American people are to
day beetowiug upon it more or less of
their dispaehioi atscoimideia'lon, thoir
judgment, unbiased by ptrty jrrjii

what their action iu thi future ruujr
be. Let them look over the whole
situation of onrconntry let them con
trast it with theatnnib of the pnst, and
with the r'BO, decay and flnrl ovei

them honestly inquire whereiu we
possess superior Intollijfeiice or virtttn
over other Chmtien and eulightened

Another fra't'ul source ef evil end

Then what aill become of the bond
80 much as I have predicted may
-t happen in four years, but who
shall dare to say that, with unbridled
sulTiage, tixa'ioD, poverty and cor

But suppose It should not trauspiie in
eight, twelve or twenty years, what
are ail these short pjriods in the life
of a nation? tfureiy, they are scarcely
bieuthlng epelln. The etrngiile will
come: tbo seol bai been planted, and
it ia bound to germinate into a fall
harvest of anarchy, from which, un
less wiser anil puiur beads direct us
than we can now invoke, despotism
will be but an cope from the de
struction of civilir. itinn a refuge, a
choice between two evils. Our liber

will be put down by tbe strong arm of

brains will assert their supremacy in a
different form of government.

Wahiixutos, May 12 The Senate

by tien. Black to support tho allega
tions in hia report that the Pension
Ollice hud been managed as a politiiul
machine) and asked w hat there was
therein 10 sustain the allegation.
The Commissioner, rcferrirg to the
papers, said the claimant applied for a
pension six days before the expiration
of the limit to the payment of arrears.
The record) of the Adjutant General's
ollice contained no records of disabil
ity. The original certi Iterate of dis
charge state's that the claimant had
been unfit for duty by reason of a dis
euae which he bail contracted h fore
he enlisted. Amemg the papers was
found a letter from Thomas tirahum,
County Auditor of Jetle-rsnn county,
Ind., to Commissioner I hnlley, asking,
if consistent, if be would look after
the papers in this cime, and, if it
we e right, hurry alon' the mat

politics." Mr. Graham added that
they weie having a big light amiinst

he could againHt llohiuia. Tho case
was mado special, and was rejected
after examination A second letter
from Graham was received, upon
which thocuHC w as reopened and sent
to en examining board in Indiana, re

The Commissioner said the whole his
tory shows that ollice joined in the
rejection r.f the case, liu believed
tho granting of tho pension was con
trary to all lew and the evidenc-.
Senator Piatt culled up the citso of
Capt. Charles Kehoreck; Fifteenth

Among tho pan rs wero found a

Dr. Winlerimilh, Sir I 4aive a rule 1 hnve
olmervoj for many years, the value of your
roiueily iiromprins me to say, in reply to
your reouerl, what I know of your Chill
Oore. Ihe iirirnte assurances of its eflii-aoy
I had. and the (omi result of its erTects I
had obfarred on Mr. K. W. Meredith, who,
for more than tfteon yers, had been fore
roan of my oftire, induced ma to tent it in
my family. Ihe re'ulu hare been entirely
satisfactory. Tha first tut was of two
tears' standina, in which I believe every
nown remedy hd been tried with tempo
rary relict the chills returning periodically
and with seeminnlr ii-creaea severity.
Your cure broke them at once, and there has
been no recurrence of them for ruoro than
six months. The other rase was ot a milder
form, anit ylalded mora readily to other
remedies; but the jhlils would return al in
tervals until your medicine was useil. sinca
which time, now several months, tuFy have
ntirelv disspneared. From the opportu
nity I have had tojudire. I dn not hesitate to
express my belief that your Chill Cure is a
valuable specific, ana performs all jou
promise to, it. ALpEMAN.
