Hut in the present instance, the job was a
performed even more indecently than usual, u
It was begun in tho Senate, w here jobbing h
and Squandering habitually run riot, and A
through which a man may any time drive hi s u
wagon into the Treasury and load i;p if he e
inly understands the way . (ThojsBenate is
forbidden by the Constitution to originate a t
money-bill that is, a 'fresh burthen on the Ji
People.) This Salary job was started there,
and went through of course. Going thence c
to the Hoitfe, it was there promptly and em- t
phatically put down only thirty-three voting I
lor it. in a House of U34 Members. So the
bill went back to! the Senate, which insisted t
and told the House, 'You shall submit, or wo i
'will defeat tho Appropriation (Civil and
Diplomatic) altogether, and compel an Extra t
'Session.' The House defied this threat and
said, 'Let the Appropriations go, If they must!' i
But finally, leading friends of the new Ad- I
ministration said, -To begin with an Extra I
I Session, Is ruinous that broke down Van t
Bttren's Administration then Harrison's' 1
So at last the House caved in, and the job !
was accomplished. Will honorable and high-
minded men, in the face and eyes of the
Country, consent to receive money that was i
thus screwed out of thu Treusury-the House i
consenting lo the sack as if with a pistol at
its head ! ,
2, 'The Vsual Extra Compensation.' Con
gress employs twice as many sub-Clerks.sub-Doorkeepers,
Messengers. F i r e-m a k e r s. ;
Sweepers, Pages, Sic, Sic, as there is any
need of and pays them most exorbitantly.
Tho least efficient men get &3 per day lor
very short and light days' work. The Pages
(mere lads of 12 lo 15 years) receive $10.J
per week. And in addition lo this, it has be
come a habit to vote them all &2;i) each at
the close of each Session, as 'the usual exfro
compensation.' It began with a vote of that
sum at the close of a very long and rather!
arduous Session, when it was pleaded that
I the underlings had been w orked very hard &
had fairly earned something more than or-!
Idinsry Then It was u-ged and passed as'
'extra compensation ' ever since it has been ',
'the usual extra compensation.' .Many of the !
boys could not eum $4 per week any w here j
else in the world; yet they ure paid )fi)l per '
week lor attending on Congress a few hours
each day in the dullest part of the yenr, and '
tbon M additional per week at the closo of'
I the Session as 'the usual extra compensation.'
' In return for this, they pay in some $5 each
I for a liberal 'spread' ol cold fowl, ham, brandy, '
j wine, &c, which is set otit In some sly Com- :
j mitteo-room of the Capitol on the last night
of each Bession for the Members to get drunk '
and quarrelsome upon. That ia to say the :
i Members lake out of the Treasury some rj:t0,-1
000 or $40,000 to give to their messengers,
pages, Sic, who gratefully contribute Home
$ 1, 001) or BO out ol it to make the Members 1
jolly over night and savagely sick next day.'
Of course, a the Members do not vote lor
the swindle, nor do all partake of the tipple;
but the business is so managed that the peo
ple cannot know who does or does not. In
tho present case, we regret to see that a
Member from our City, and a Whig at that,
I (Hon. Geo. Urigga.) was put forward to move
1 thin most unjusttijable Gulphinism, thuugli ull
j the profit ol it enures to the- adverse party.
George Is a good follow, but be does allow his
fingers to be used to rake other folks'
chestnuts oul of the lire rather freely. (
We had intended to go on, and walk in- :
to various other plunder-jobs, hut lime and
space fail us for to-day and besides, we do ,
I not yet know, (nor does anybody) what was
really passed and what has been defeated. ',
Not even half the Members could tell to-day
what contested items foisted into (or at) the i
Appropriation billa have failed and what have
passed. Hear Thi National Inlettittnctr of

While many things ol Importance failed, ',

and even that for the Civil Service of the:

yesterdsy morning at 3 o'clock, of being lost. I !
They finally got through, however, but in what J
precise shape one can tell. j '

allusions in debate, thst the members were f
aware ol the grievance of this great hindrance I
to the public business, but the proper remedy r'
seemed less obvious or attainable."

oni of dollars, our portion of tho fijty ml- :
ons necessary for the support of the Uuited
tates Government. This hard working
irmer would be compelled to pay teventy-five
ol'ars instead of twenty five, or three times
s much. This would be an enormous draft
pon his income, and he would very probably
egin tii look around for some explanation,
is the SleirSMa has saddled this new tax
pon him, he would, perhaps, go there for an
iplanelion. Let u imagine the scene.
Farmer. I am taxed seventy Jive dollars
his year, while Inst yeor I only paid twenty
've. I do n't like this kind of democracy.
Statesmen, My dear sir, you don't pay a
opper more than you did then. You paid)
he fifty dollars extra, by way of indirect taxes j
Farmer. I did n't pay a cent over the
wenty-nvc dollars. Wjiat do you mean by
Statesman. I will explain. List year,
inder Jhkral Whigs rule, the expenses of
roveriiment were paid by a duty on foreign
roods that were brought into tho States, i
Iroadcloths, shirting, silks, sugars, die, all'
brmerly paid a duty, and the money so raised '
vas used to pay the expense of government. !
i!ut we, the democracy, go in for free trade, f
jo we have abolished all these duties. We
lermit the people of all nations to bring;
joods into the United States free, and wo
alia what money vvc want, by direct taxes j
in the property of the people of the States.
Sow, you paid your fifty dollars extra, by the
additional price you paid for your broadcloths,
silks, &c., &.C., which you uso in your family.
It don't make any diflerence to you whether
pi puy tho fifty Jullaro to flirt tnjr gs I luT.-r
iirect, or whether you pay it to the merchant ,
and let him pay it to the government by way
of duties on the good you consume. I hope
you understand the meaning of indirect tax
ation by this time.
Farnur. 1 think I know what you mean
by it, now. But, my dear sir, it is a huge lie
all of it. Why, I don't buy at the stores
fifty dollars' worth of gouajs in u year. My
woman makes the cloth for our coats, and I
raise the wool. She makes linen cloth for
our sheets, shirts, &c. We don't wear broad
cloth. Wo can't ullbrd to wear silks. Wo
work hard, and live economically, on what we
raise. You tow n folks that wear broad cloths
and silks every day, and by so much at the
stores may, perhaps, pay the difference be
tween the taxes now and last yeur in this way.
But I don't begin to do it, even allowing your
theory to be true. This ideu of indirect tax
utioii is all u mistake in its upplicutiuii. I
don't like to submit to it, us you apply it. I
want to save my money, und am not w illing
to puy fifty dollurs per yeur, extru, for the
sake of your principle. If I want these fine
things broad cloths, silks, &c, I shall ex
pect to pay for them; I shall do it voluntarily,
anil because I think I am able to bear the ex
pense. But I don't like the idea of being
comptlkd lo pay tax without getting uny of
the benefits. If I desire, I wish lo escape
this burden, I can do so when the tax is col
lected from loreign goods, by not purchasing
them) bill by y. ur system of direct taxation,
I am compelled to puy any how, I don't like
lh:s sort of Democracy, and I won't stand it.
So look i ut lor sights uboul the time ol the
Here is Ihe theory of direct taxation, in its
very best aspect. What do Ihe miners of
the State say lo i' ! What do the tux payers,
generally) think of it' w would ak ior no
more complete overthrow of Locofueoism
lb in we should have if this delectable system
of free trade and direct taxation were en
forced just lor one year in the Slate of Ohio.
Think of raising live millions by tuxes in ad
jition to our present rates. It is uppaliug.
We think our burdens are heavy enough
already, but w hen they aro increased three
Ui!d they would crush thousands ami tens of

and was beaten about 1000 votes.
Mr. DonniN, if 11 diamond, ha9 just been
dug up fruin the obscurity of the mine. He
bus serv ed a term in Congress from which he
obtained no distinction. He was recently a

Mr. Campbell is a Philadelphia lawyer ol
small calibre, and his sudden rise to high
place ia one of the curiosities ol politics. At the
election of ISAI, Campbell, because a Ro
man Catholic, was pluced upon the State tick
et as a candidate for Supreme Judge, but his
want of fitness for the station was so well
known that Gov. Higler und four of the Loco
candidates for the Supreme Court were elec
ted by 8000 majority, while Cumpbell wus
beaten by 5000! Gov Bigler, considering
Cumpbell a martyr tu hi religion, appointed
him Attorney-General, from which office he
has been transplanted, by President Pierce,
into the I'ost Office Department. By this
move Gen. Pierce bus overleaped the bounds
of New Hampshire religious toleration. 1

he joined himself to the house of Polk, vol- ,

bered long after the individual members com
posing it have passed from the arena of pol
itics. We have had occasion to chronicle
some of their actB during their first session.
The bold, lawless act of the Clerk, in con
tracting all the printing or last year with his
brother, without competition, in violation of
the ietter and spirit of the Constitution, and
not only without the sanction and consent 0f
the House, but in express opposition to it; the
employment by the Clerk and Scrgcant-at
Arms of an army of dependants and hangers
on, as deputies, in numbers beyond all for
mer example; the vast amount of money paid
these nominal deputies, but real pensioners,
without consideration, upon the treasury of
the people; the disgraceful conduct of Chah
le v Weller, in hurling a sand box at the
head of a brother Locoloco member, when
the House was in session, und attending to
ils business; and the general spirit of rowdy
ism, Indifference to the public interests, con
fusion, with a marked, palpable incapacity
and want of character and experience, oil
combined, have made the House of Repre
eentativea of Ohio a reproach and by-word
j throughout all the land, and among the mem
bers of ull parties. Its fame was notorious
before, but the last crowning act of the Clerk,
Maih.on H. Meiiarv, in deliberately draw
ing a huge club, and knocking down Mr. Bab
KUM, the I.occfoco member from Cuyahoga,
while standing near the Clerk's desk, and
conversing with another member, and when
the House was in regular session, was alone
needed to muke assurance doubly sure that
the first House of Representatives under tho
new Constitution, has attained a position of
notoriety, that will not be forgotten in the
annals of our history. We have seen, and
read of many acts of outrage, of rowdyism, of
brutul violence in the legislative Hulls, not
only of Congress, but of tho States of the
Union, but we frankly admit, what is known
and admitted by gentlemen of all parties in
this city, that the act of Medary, for reck
less disregard of all order, decorum, or pro-
j priety; lor contempt, for the character and
dignity of the House, aud the honor, good
name, und reputation of the Stale, for trans-
I cends them, and throws every similar act in
j the shade.
I We know nothing, and care nothing about
1 the secret causes of the quarrel between the
! Clerk and Mr. Bar.iuji. Since the trans
! nction we have learned that it is not 01' recent
growth. We know nothing of the justice of
jthe charges made by Mr. Uarmum against
I the conduct of Medary, as Clerk. All these
j things have been inquired into, and reported,
j upon by the speciul committee to which the
mutter wus referred. Thai, report finds that
, Baknom was in the wrong, and that he did
! injustice to the Clerk in his charges against
him. Medary, as Clerk, had no oppor, unity
to reply, and he is entitled to the benefit of
this excuse for his ire. If he had waited till
the Hous,. had adjourned, and then confront
ed Barium, there would have been at least,
an apology for an assault. Il he had repelled
tlie insult of Barnum at the time when it was
offered, the plea ol hot blood, and offended,
injured honor would have been a palliation
with some. But, to submit to the injury for
from twenty to thirty minutes, without any
manlfeatatlona of his feelings toward Mr.
Baknum, and, alter thut lupse of time, when
the House was in session, and quietly pro
ceeding w ith its business, when Mr. Darnuiu
accidentally huppened near the Cler'ks desk;:
without nolice to him, to wield uch a for
midable club as he then used, and to strike a
lull' alow upon his naked heed all these
things combined, muke a case that is without
purullel iu the land. We do not justify Mr.
Barm'M. The testimony is against the truth,
ol his Charge, But, we cannot for a moment
tolerute ihe act of the Clerk in thus violating
the dignity of the House, and eetting at de
