Ex-Senator Williams, - who beoomea i
Attorney-General on the 10th of Janu?
ary, waa congratulated by bia frienda to?
night. He made a brief apeeoh. He <
cald: "AU the abilities and energies I ,
possess will be devoted to the enforce- i
mont of the laws and the suppression of
violence, disorder and orime. I promise j
all: whom it may oonoern, that when I <
am plaoed at the head of the department
of justice, ao far as my jurisdiction in j
that department may go, its mandates i
will be dispensad without, fear or favor, j
and with equal vigor and respect for all i
classes and conditions of men. I regret ;
that in some seo tiona of the country a
spirit of lawlessness seems to prevail. I ]
will favor every consideration of kind- (
ness to luduou obedience to the laws, |
but if no other means will answer, then
lam for using the whole power of the |
couutry to crush ont every conspiracy
against the peace of society and the j
safety of unoffending citizens." The \
new Attorney-General is amazed that |
any considerable number, ail thia time, ]
should engage in violence and disorder, <
(or there is nothing to gain and much to
loee. If hatred and revenge are allowed j
to overcome these considerations, then it <
becomes the plain duty of tbe Govern- \
meat to interfere with its BtroDg arm and \
subdue these passions. He alludes to <
being the first Cabinet officer from West j
Of the Rocky Mountains, and promises |
not to forget where his home is. I

NIGHT DESPATCHES. ,
WASHINGTON, December 16.-The cot?
ton retorna received in December at the
Department of Agriculture' are similar
in tenor to the November reporta-fully
sustaining tbe moderate promise of im?
provement npon the somewhat glowing
views presented in October; yet tbe
ohaoge is so marked as to modify mate?
rially tbe prospeot first allowed in the
monthly reports for July and September.
The latest returns would indicate an es?
timate almost identical with that of the
September report fora favoring autumn,
wbioh could scarcely bring a trop ex?
ceeding 8,333,000 bales. Frosts have
been delayed till November, and in some
localitiea till tbe 20th; and the weather
bas been generally favorable for picking,
without waste or discoloring of fibre.
A fair rendering of tbe recent local esti?
mates, wbioh bave been unusually nu?
merous and complete, gives a total ag?
gregate of 3,400.000 bales as tbe present
expectation of the cotton yield of 1871.

"We mest all stand together," be said,
looking severely askant at the supposed
delinquent; and the other man present,
being the one addressed, and only a
party eoho, and well paid for it, said,
with a corresponding look in the same |
direction, "Yes, we ought, surely, all to
Bland togothor." And with that over
whelming argument, doubtless they
thought they bad settled the matter for
then and all time.
It was a soene worthy of Dickens or of I
Naafc. Pity we have not tho latter bera j
to serve op the South Carolina ring in !
the same style us Tammany 1 Pity the
Scott, Parker, Neagle and Bampton
faces should not grin ont at us every
week from some Southern Harper, with
the force and ludicrousness they so well
merit, and with equal effectiveness on I
the public mind. If there is suoh a I
large constituency in New York that
-pictures can best reach and enable to
comprehend the situation, so, much
more clearly, there is a larger one here.
"Ought all to stand together!" Now [
that their villainy is being uncovered,
this is their cry. Stand dose together,
so, dear friends, (how very dear some \
friends suddenly become in times of
trouble!) and oover us when threatened
with well deserved punishment and dis?
grace; bear fur us the evil name wo have |

us/ Stand close by us/
What if we do fleece you all, friends I
and foes, so nicely; rob you of every
available penny; ref uno to pay our bills,
and keep your money to build our own
fortunes upon, till having kept it BO j
long, it oomes to seem quite as though
it belonged to ns, and we mean to keep
it altogether. What of that? We arel
fellow Republicans and friends, you
know; you mustn't say a word! And
being friends, we don't exactly like to
ask for it; but if you want a bill paid,
why, you simpletons, don't yon offer us
that nice shave we have been waiting for
so long-only half of it-to divide
around among ns, a la Tammany; and if
you have not enough ont cf thc rest o!
it to pay the employees and other ex?
penses, and are obliged to take for your?
selves considerably less than nothing,
why, that is no special business of ours,
that we know of. We are bonnd to have
the lion's share, anyway, seeing we can.
That is our friend-ship, and clan-ship,
and party-ship, and whatever else you
may call it, when yon come down to the
honest truth of it.
Thank yon, our very dear, sweet
friends; wo didu't know what tho
Dickens and Fanny Feru style of
friends was, till we became acquainted
with you; bot we think we understand
it now pretty thoroughly. It is all ex?
ceedingly nice-for you, we must ac?
knowledge; all these little games yon are
BO well up to with friends and everybody
else; bot with bright Qail Hamilton, wo
fail to find stirring within us the graoious
promptings to accept any such "call to
martyrdom." Friendship is a very good
thing in its way, but we are unromantic
enough not to think it worth starving
for. When it comes to asking people to
go without clothes and to live on air; to
consent to be dunned every time they go
in the street, having co means to pay
their honest debts because you will not
pay yours; yon may be very dear, sweet
friends, indeed; but you are not worth
One of our most prominent and acute
merchants, writing to ns under date of
December 13. eays:
"After careful thought upon the sub
jeot of the bond question and the City
Hall and market improvements now
being carried on by the City Counoil,
and which was freely discussed by your?
self and others in the Board of Trade,
last evening, I am clearly of the opinion
that the whole thing is wrong; and the
sooner a stop is put to it, the better.
Tbefioanoial affairs of the city and State
are not in a coudition nt this time that
wouid warrant the issue of bonds to
j carry on any improvements. The peo?
ple are now burdened with heavy taxer,
and to inoreaso the taxes at this time for
these improvements, would certainly
be very injudicious and unwise. If the
oity required these improvements, it
would be unjust, at this time, to or?ate
bonds for the purpose. The financial
affairs of the country at this time are
such, that we would have to seek a mar?
ket out of the State to sell the bonds,
and, with the present blemish given to
the credit of the State by tho party in
power, I doubt if the oity bonds could
be sold at over forty cents on tho dollar;
and you can see at once that it would be
to the interest of tax-payers to have a
stop put to all these improvements, and
let them stand until things tuke a chango
for the better. I have no idea that the
bonds of the city, with the present ad?
ministration controlling the affairs of the
city, could be sold at over forty cents on
the dollar, and the tax-payers wouid
have to foot the balance. The subject
of taxes seems to be but little under?
stood among the people."
