Toes lay Morning, December 8, 1874.
The most satisfactory declarations
made by Air. Obamberlain while a can?
didate, and repeated substantially in |
bis inaugural nfesaage, jwere .that he
proposed to set aside the bounds and
trammels ,of party, and ba the Go?
vernor of the whole people. ? 'Viewing
dispassionately the policy ahd platforms
of p?noiple8, whieh were enunciated
during the canvass, he rooognised the
substantial harmony of purpose whioh
was reached in the result of the eleo- \
Won. He professed to depend for sup?
port upon those who opposed, as well
as those who supported, his election.
This was the more confidently to be |
ceiled >bp'ont because political differ?
ences were thus to be held in abey?
ance, and more especially because the
principal, present and pressing demand
was .for tho practica and enforcement
of economy and honesty in tho admi?
nistration of the State Government.
The justice.of this demand, as made
by tbo Conservatives of tho State, was
admitted by their political oppouents
within it, and all parties outside wero
earnest in insisting- upon it. Here,
then, j was safo ground for a newly
ejected Go vor a or to take hi a stand
upon, and great satisfaction was felt
that Mr. Chamberlain proposed to
make good, honest and fair adminis?
tration'the oorner-stone of his policy.
Banning our eye over his message,
we find the thought constantly pre?
senting itself to his mind, that the main
-eause of the troubles and embarrass?
ments, the excessive taxation, the
enormous inorease of debt, and the
demoralisation of the pnblio sorvioe,
must have been the irresponsible and
worthless character, the iguoranco, in
oompetency nnd dishonesty of those
? smploved in it. He considers the tax
system, for instance, as likely to work
oat a just result, "if it could be placed
in tho hands of honest, competent of?
ficers," and he pledged himBeif to see
to it, that so far as its workings would
depend upon his appointment of the
right kind of men to conduct it, no
County should have cause of jast com?
plaint against htm. His references to
the whole system of contingent funds,
rvbioh the public officers have recently
.procured to be passed for their use
?without being made accountable for
them, to the shameful and extravagant
-wasto.of the substance of tbe people in
legislative expenses, to tbe fortunes
that have been spent in the public
printing, to the issue of orders, certifi?
cates aud warrants on the State Trea?
sury when no funds were on baud for
their paymeut, to the inefficiency of
County School Commissioners, 4c;
all have the same moaning. Filling
these positions, or standing behind
these abuses have been men?bad and
incompetent men. The theory of tbe
message was, therefore, that auch men
muBt be worked out of the way of
doing tbe State barm, aud better men
wo ked into their places. Its funda?
mental idoa might be construed to be,
iu tbe pointed emendation of John
Randolph, of Roauoke, principles and
caea, in place of tbe current phrase,
of principles, nut men.
Increased as onr oonlidetice has been
tu the Governor, by the sentiment,
tone and purpose of his first message,
we feel a certain degree of apprehen?
sion as to his success in carrying them
into effect. Men 6uriouud him who
know nothing bat party and self, and
the advantages and opportunities
wh'ch partisanship, rigidly insisted
upon, will give them. They are net,
aufl from tho nature of the case, can?
not be reformers, iu any jast seuso of j
the word. They hate tho ideas whioh j
it conveyH, however frequently aud'
lusciously they roll the term upon
rheir lips. They are ouly party hacks,
and corrupt old stagors, who can and
will do no honest work. They will be?
siege and beset tho Governor for ap?
pointments to oilhe. They hunger
and thirst for tho pnblio crib. They
bone for the flesh-pots and all tho savo?
ry condiments to which Ihey have
been asod. Tho Governor might na?
turally enough foal inclined to oblige
friends who havo shown zeal in his be?
half, and thero can be no objection to
liiftv doing so, where tho parties uro
above reproach and suspicion. Bnt
just here will bo his danger. This is
tho rook, if any, upon which the
honorable and just expoetatioua of the
country may bo wrecked. It will re?
quire oareful pteering to go botwecn
Scylla and Oharybdis. Tho Governor
can only secure the confidence of the
State by gaorifioing everything, evon
partisan friendship, to right and jus?
tice, And thero Can be no right and
j ustiee unless the fountains and sources
of the public admlnlstraU?l^ore kept
pare, healthy and clear. The logical
dedaotion from the inaagaral is, that
only good aod-capable joen ehall have
devolved upon.them the roeponeibili
pxop.er principle, of seleotion,- und tuatj
principle in uot primarily or mainly
party or party service.
T.kB Precedent Not Applicable.
When the Speaker of the House ot
Representitifes, after a week's iccuba
tion, batohed out the oommitteos, into
whose hands the public interests were
to be confided, wo said nothing, al?
though wo observed exclusion of most
of the capable, experienced and dis?
tinguished momber3 of the House
from any of the leadiug positions.
Now we have bis reasons, in certaiu
explanations offered a few days ago.
The fact that the chairmanship of no
important committee had even been
given in the United States Congrc?s to
a representative of a minority party,
(as asserted,) is aonstroed into a pre?
cedent, and admitted to be the ground
of tho Speaker's aotion. But it is un?
tenable ground. The arena of Con?
gress is entirely diffcrout from tbo Le?
gislature of a State. Even if true, a
wise view of thinge, as they exist here,
would hare counseled a departure from
its stringont enforcomeut. The party
in power having ruined and disgraoed
the State, Bhould have r^cognizod.
through the Speaker of the House,
tho presence of representatives who
have oome fresh from the people to
assist in the correction of evils, the
reform of abases and the overthrow of
oorraptfon. Their power to instruct,
to lead the way in useful and necessary
reforms, having boon recognized by
the people themselves, who sent them
hero with that object distinctly in viow,
they were entitled to tha opportunity
of exerting their influence and per?
forming what we may call their mis?
sion, under tho most favorable condi?
tions. The rigid purtyism of ussigu
ing to the most insignificant plaooe the
mon best fitted to lead tho State out of
its troubles, by wise, discreet uud far
reachiug legislation, as well as by ex?
posure of past errors, wrongs and
corroptious, oannot be defended upon
any grounds. Even us a party expo
dieut, it can servo no good or lasting
ends. The country requires a more
capable, more enligbtoued and a more
just administration of publio affairs,
and tho country will have it sooner or
later in some way. True policy would
recognizj this demand frankly at once,
and shape things accordingly. The
spirit of reform would gladly welcome
the best agencies to effect it.

Another Case of Cremation.?An?
other very satisfactory cremation has
bocn performed at Dresden, Saxony,
in the vi?ry name furnace employed for j
the consumption of Lidy Dilko'sbody
Again the body was that of a lud?, thi
wifo of a Geriuati physician. The ??o
lemuity duo to euch a ceremony was
closely observed. The hall around the
furnace was decorated with flowers,
but so unreasonable aud prevalent was
the prejudice against thin means of dis?
posing of tho dead lady's remains,
that no clergyman could be found to
speuk a burial address over her body,
and this lack whs supplied by LTorr
Siemnds, the constructor und pru
piietorof the oven, who made uu ap?
propriate and impressive speech. The
process of cremation was screenud
from the eyes of the lady's friends by
an iruu door, but opportnuity was
given a limited number of scientific
men to witness tbe transformations as
thay took place. Thebe gentlemen de?
scribed the speotacle as free from any?
thing offensive to the .senses or iinngi
uution. There was no smoke or nn
sightly change iu the appearance ol
the body. Aftor tbo colliu was con?
sumed the corpse appeared, first in iis
nutural state, and rapidly passed into
tbe successive stages of red aud traus
lucent white bent, and from the latter
condition crumbled into ushes. Iu
seventy-eight minutes all organic mat?
ter was gout*, and all that remaiued
was a small heap of ashes, which v.ere
gathered into au nrn. This is decid?
edly tho most successful experiment

Likk Mastrr Likb Mas?The Now
York Commercial Adrurliser gives the
dotails of a case that occurred in a New
York Criminal Court a few days ago,
in which a dry goods clerk wus on trial
on a charge ot dishonesty, preferred
by his employer. The litter gave a
woman two one dollar notes, which
she was to baud tho youug mau, as if
by mistake for u single note. The
trup was well baited, aud the youth
fell into it, patting tho odd dollar into
his pocket. But bo was not without a
fence. Iu his own behalf he stated |
that ho Lad been educated to dis- ,
honesty. Iiis employer had been !
selling "damaged goods," representing
that they bad beou wetted ut a tiro,
when in fact the hydrant in tbe cellar
was brought ijto requisition tu da?
rn ige thorn. Tho Commercial adds:
"The cleiks were compelled to tell
falsehoods about the goods, and were
thus trained to rascality. If law aud
justice were- synonymous, tho young !
man, who simply followed out bib j
employer's teachings, ought to hivej
been invited to step down aud out of '
tho prisoner's dock, and hi.s employer j
should have been sent to jail. As it j
was, tho accused wus acquitted. But ;
tho moral of the trial is worth its cost j
to the city treasury. A business man]
who cheats his customers may b? -nie j
that his clerks will rub him."

Both Territories have a large llepubli

should commence "hedging'* for their

while at tho last session tbe Eastern
Senators were jealous of adding mem?
