in adjusting to perfect system his immense
retail establishment The new wing at the
corner of Ninth street has been completed, and
was thrown open last Monday. Thc whole 7
block, bounded by Broadway and Fourth i

one building, which is probably the largest of (
its kind in the world. Ever since Stewart rc- ,
moved his retail business from the Chambers
street house his heart has been set on grasp- (
ing the entire block at Tenth street, and i
now that he has succeeded I hope he is
happy. A few days before thc completion of |
the Anal addition, Mr. Stewart set a good ex- ,
ample to property owners generally by re?
ducing his rents all round. The reduction 1
runs lrom ten up to thirty per cent., and l
reaches every house he owns In New York.
One piece ot property belonging to him, how- ,

there is a report that lt will soon be torn down

army of laborers at work on his Hempstcad j

WASHINGTON, April s.
The work of reconstruction will be practi?
cally ended on the firth anniversary or the close
or the war. Georgia alone remains on the cal?
endar, and it is expected that thc second status
of reconstruction lt', that State will be settled by
Congress the present week. The Radicals will
carty their point, as tilings now look, aad the
Bingham amendment wiil be defeated, the
luramous rule of the Bullock administration will
bc perpetuated. Thc manufactured stories of
outrages, and thc lobbyiug of Bullock on thc
floor of each House, have done Hie work, while
Grant has thrown his personal influence in sup?
port of the extremist!!. The Radicals wilt now
turn with some rear to thc great question which
meets them at home, and to thc counter die ra?
tio'1 or the administration that meets them in
Congress. Mt. Grant and Mr. Boutwell nave been
un Vise cnongh to declare that this generation
must pay on" the public debt; that although there
will bc a revenue- of $lir>,000,000 for the next
fiscal year above thc expenses of thc government,
thc work must go on of paying $100,000,000 a
rear on the principal of the debt. This, or course,
takes ?50,000,000 more or taxatlou out or the
pockets or the people than there is any necessity
Tor, and removes that amount or capital from
the business aud productive iatttresu of thc
They have not been slow to find this ont. The
mass meeting of merchants and business men In
Chicago, on Saturday, telegraph their resolutions
Here that thc West demands a reduction or taxa?
tion al least fifty million of dollars. Memorials
:ome in every mail by the dozen to Western
members, asking for thc total abolit iou or the in?
come lax aud oMier taxes that arc now more
Purdensome than ever. Mr. Boutwell ls still tlrm
in his opposition to the reduction or taxation,
md even goes so far as to oppose any modifica?
tion of the income tax. He insists that lils finan?
cial policy demands that he should have this tax?
ation for at least another year-that two hundred
millions more of the public debt should be paid off
before Congress gucs to work to cut down the
revenue. Now these Western Congressmen, who
come up for re-election next fall, say that they I
?rill never ?-nme back if they douotgo in for rc I
inca] taxation; and yet iltey do ubi want to bc
placed iu the position of opposing the fiuancial
policy of thc admin 1st ration, on thc success or
which they assume their own election also de?
pends. It is simply reduced to the question or
Vilich shall yield; but it is pretty evident that
3rant and company will have to come to terms.
Within the past three weeks no less than three
thousand applications have been made rrom citi?
zens or Hie Southern States, asking for the re?
noval of their political disabilities, all or which
lave been referred to the respective committees
>t the two houses on thc subject. They do not
ntend to Ukc farther action on any individual
tases, but to await a general bill, which has been
thready drawn up, and which allows any one to
have his disabilities removed on application to thc
knited States District Courts. The President,
However, ls in favor of a general law, ^o bc
passed by thc requisite two thirds or each house,
;rantiug general amnesty, and thus far adheres
to his Intention or sending in a special message to
Congress recommending lt. 1 say adheres, be?
cause several Radicals have called on him and
advised agalust lt. The Washington Chronicle or
yesterday also contained communications from
the carpet-bag element, opposing amnesty at
present-declaring that the time had not arrived,
ind endeavoring to carry the matter over to the
forty-second Uougre3s; but public opinion ls too
strong Tor lt.
The way in which New England is able to get
ihe lion's share, ls illustrated ina recent speech
srG-ueral Morgan, of Ohio, who submitted to the
House an official statement showing the way
Massachusetts had furnished less regiments, put
In more war claims and received more pay than
States that supplied nearly two hundred more
regiments. While Massachusetts famished 107
less than New York, on the plea of war expendi?
tures she has drawn from the Treasury 01,167,
C7l more than New York. While Massachusetts
furnished iso regiments less than Pennsylvania,
on the olea or war expenditures she has drawn
from the Treasury $1,392,934 more than Pennsyl?
vania. While Massachusetts furnished 162 regi?
ments less than Ohio, on the plea or war expen -
dituics she has drawn from thc Treasury $911,
243 more than Ohio.
The recent rumors of Cablnent changes have
been based principally on the ground that the
foreign policy or the administration ha3 been
weak, as well as on the remark or Grant a year
ago, that tr lus Cabinet did not suit him he would
change it in twelve months. Leaders ortho Repub?
lican party in Congress are generally opposed to
Fish. They deny that he is in sympathy with the
party; they charge that his hostility to thc Cubans
is dictated by his son-in-law, Sidney Webster,
who ls thc paid attorney ortho Spanish Govern?
ment; and they further Insist that "a year's cor?
respondence with Clarendon on the Alabama
claims has shown our Prime Minister in a most
unfavorable light. Ilowever, Graut does not
seem disposed to make any change, and laughed
most heartily ovor tho newspaper rumor that
placed Ben. Buller in thc State Department.
There is a conflict between the two appropria?
tion CKUiaitlees on thc item of $25,?o? for re?
pairing and fixing up the Charleston Custom?
house. The House committee are opposed to it,
and thc Senate favor it, while the supervising
architeet declares that the amount is needed.
The result will bc thal it will probably pass,
though every other customhouse is likely to put
lu a similar bill.

THE ELECTION TO BE CONTESTED.
[KROlf OP): OWN COltBESrovnENT.)
COLUMBIA, April 7.
Election managers counted the votes for
municipal officers to-day. All the managers were
Radical except one, or, at farthest, two. The re?
sults have already been given as follows :
For Mayor, Alexander (Radical) received HOI
votes, against 624 for McKenzie, the Incumbent.
For Aldermen the result by wards arc :
In thc first ward, for Radicals 40-2 against 161
a Radical majority of 241.
In tho second ward, Radicals 235 against loo
a majority or 135.
lu the third ward, Radicals 205 against 171
a majority of 34.
In tho fonrth ward, Radicals 312 against 1S7
a majority of 125.
For Aldermen, that ls to say, the RndlcalB
polled 1154 votes against C19-a majority or 535.
It thus appears that there are 1775 voters In
Columbia, which 19 largely above any former vote

thc entire registry or taxpayers (per capita,)

?gf NEWSPAPER STATEMENTS
BOW THE PEOPLE TEST THEIR TROTH.-This
Is not an age when people believe oa trust what?
ever they sec in tho public Journals. Fir;y or
sixty years ago, when the accuracy or a statement
that had appeared in one of tho gazettes or "News
Letters" of the day was questioned, lt was con?
sidered a sufficient answer to all cavil to say, " It
must bc so, for I read lt in thc newspaper." It ls
not so now. Newspaper assenions must bc veri?
fied before they are taken for granted, and this
Is especially thc ease as regards statements set?
ting forth the remedial properties of proprietary
medicines. For example: It was not until the
tonic and alterative properties of UOSTETTER'S
STOMACH BITTERS had been deliberately and
thoroughly tested by thousands, and found to bc
[ti perfect accord with the printed claims put
forth in Its behalf, that lt was accepted by thc
public at large as a STANDARD REMEDY. But
when multitudes who had resorted to it as a safe?
guard against malarious fevers, a cure for Indi?
gestion and biliousness, a means of strengthening
thc frame, cheering the spirit and Imparting con?
stitutional vigor, came forward and testified that
its beneficial effects had exceeded their moa t san?
guine expectations, of course the world believed.
To resist such proofs was Impossible. Great care
has been takeu from the beginning not to over?
state the merits or thc Hitters. Exaggeration and
bombast have been the death of many prepara?
tions that might otherwise have survived. They
were "weighed In the balance and found want?
ing." UOSTETTER'S BITTERS, on the contrary,
have never been announced in grandiloquent
language as a cure for every bodily 111, but simply
as a pure, harmless vegetable specific, possessing
remarkable invigorating, regulating, anti-bilious
and antiseptic properties. This Is exactly what
the public kuow the medicine to be, and its enor?
mous sales ls an argument In tts favor.
