Tlicsonws are whirling thick and fast.
The drifts aisail my doorway;
I iloubt me if a wilder blast
Blows o'er the hills of Norway.
But sit thee down, my olden friend;
We twain will mock the weather;
And, while the fearful winds oouteud.
We'll hare a night together.
O, many a year and many astrm
We twain have mocked at lightly;
And though our hearts to-night are warm,
Our heads are powdered whiteiy.
And snows have drilled o'er our souls.
To fall on wintry heather.
And hide from us the grassy knolls
Where rest our loves together.
Ktlrup the fire! well talk of love
Oflove. old friend, and sorrow;
For Hie, like rainbow arch above,
lis light ihiough team must borrow.
We'll talk ol lips that clung to ours.
Thorn!! ours are now like leather.
We'll talk of girls we'll talk of flowers,
That now are dust together.
Fill np the cup, old friend of mine.
Though tears have wet our lashes;
For all our dead we quail the wine.
And pledge to dust and ashes.
We'll bind to-night our friends and foes
With memory s silken tether ,
O! wintry heart! tin throbbing low -O!

What boots it that we warm our snow T
It turns to tears in melting.
But tieiter tears than Ice, old friend.

To light the stormy weather.

following full extract :
THE LOSSES BY DEFALCATIONS SINCE
MARCH 4, 1869.
First, as to the amount of losses
sustained by the rovernment through
its appointees. The amount, I am
well aware, is not altogether a satis
factory criterion by which the integ
rity of an administration is t be
mitred. ct a comparison showing
lhai the amount thus lost is not only
iminishino, but that the boldness
and audacity of such crimes have also
been checked, is a legitimate proof of
the increased vigilance enforced upon
the custodial) s of public funds. Ihe
folio in is a list of all the losses of
ublic turn's through the crimes ol
dclalcstion or embezzlement, known
to the records, any part of which is
believed to have accrued during this
dmintstratinn. 1 be amount actually
recovered in each case is deducted,
hile the amount which may be re
covered on the bond ii not deducted :

This includes every case in which
the law offices of the government have
declared that the evidence is of such
character as to warrant a prosecu
tion tor the crime of embezzlement or
lefalcaiioD, and includes all Ihe well
known cases which have attracted
pnblic attention during the past three
AN INTERESTING COMPARISON.
Now, as compared with this, the
government lost, in two single de
falcations, in Isew Orleans, under
Johnson's administration, an amount
nearly equal to t ic above, to wit :
The fsub Treasury, Treasury, and
National Depository defalcation
of Wbillaker and May, in 1807,

covered (gross amount fl.lf.0iJOt. fSjO.OOO 0

Total . 41,(JU2a Kl
This comparison might be extended
almost indefinitely, with still more
strikbg results. It simply shows
that the government has lost less
taking the probabilities of recovery
into consideration in all ils depart
ments in nearly three years, than it
lost in two single instances under
Andrew Johnson. It should be re-
arked that the amounts charged
against this administration, as in the
F. Uailey (h ourth New York) case,
are an hem as accruing unuer u,
though the fact is that in three-fourths
of the cases they am the embezzle
ments of the appointees of former
administrations, discovered and ex
posed by the present,
THE TREASURY DEPARTMENT—INTERNAL
Let us now go into the Treasury
Department, where, if common rumor
and the statements ot some of its
assailants arc to be believed, at least
one dollar in every four is being
squandered or stolen. We will take
the workings of the Internal Revenue
Bureau in the respect which relates
most closely to the point under
consideration the accountability to
which its officials are held. On tbe
1st ot March, 1869, of tbe entire
number of Collectors of Internal Rev
enue who h-d, tt any time, been in
office during the existence of the
bureauf there were but sixty whose
accounts were finally closed. This
single fact fitly illustrates tin condi
tion ff the bureau at thai time, and
if any ot the critics want to know
why no progress conld be made in
this direction between the years 1865
and 1869, let them summon ex-Commissioner
Edward A. Rollins, who
will a tale unfold. Since the 1st ol
March, 1869, the accounts of f .ur
hundred Collectors have been closed,
and ont of 250 Collectors who have
been superseded in cflice since March
4, 1869, the accounts of 145 have
been adjusted and closed on tbe books
ot the office, and those of 65 more
are in a favorable condition for that
result. In 40 cases of Collectors
suspended since March 4, 1869, the
bureau has ordered suit to be
brought on their official bonds for,
the recovery of balances found to be
due. These suits jnclude not only
the cases where embezzlement or de
falcation is charged, in which criminal
prosecution has begun, but the cases
where from neglect, want of due dili
igence, official incapacity, or other
cause, a settlement has not yet been
obtained. In most of these cases
the crime of defalcation can not be
eharged, though so long as the Treas
ury books show an unsettled balance
against them, they are technically
held to be such. The following com
parison shows to whom belongs the
moral responsibility of appointing
these delinquents, and the amount of
both money and taxes for which suit
has been brought on their bonds. It
must be borne in mind that the in
vestigation of their affairs and their
removal from office baa in every case
bttn accomplished by this admiiis
i ration :

The lesson enforced by these forty
cases ia litigation, thus condensed
and classued, is, that three-tourtb
of the cases, four-fifths of the money.
and nine tenths of the uncollected
taxes, are tbe inheritance of previous
administration", mainly of Mr. John
OF THE LAWS.
We will now take one other
branch ot tbe workings of th
bureau for an illustration. In the
regular course of things, with largely
reduced taxes nearly one-half with
a great number of articles and deal
era entirely released from its bur
dens and annoyances, with amended
and more effective laws for the pre
venlion ot crime, and with the temp
tations to the violation of law greatly
lessened, there ought to be a larg
-iaman in numbf" "itS. in
uicimenis, anu convictions, as com
pared with the years 1867 and 1868,
when the taxes were large, and when
toe situation or affairs under John
son was marked bv a very lax en
forcement of the laws, save in excep
tional instances, where some resolute
law officer pursued criminals on his
own responsibility. We will com
pare the fiscal year 1868. which is
clear year under Johnson, with the
fiscal years 1870 and 1871. twe clear

If this comparison was pushed into
all tbe other branches over which
the Department ot J ustice now exer
cises control, it would hold good in
the same ratio. In some respects.
particularly those concerning the
prosecutions of public officials, it
would be even more striking.
Let us now go into the Customs
Bureau, and look at the integrity of
the ofhcials there, as affected by tbe
question ot embezzlement and defal
cation. Since the 4lh ot March,
1869, there have been brought
against Collectors and other officers
of customs and their deputies, fifteen
suits, civil and criminal, involving
870,138 62. Of this amount, 34,-
000 ouly is in the nature of defalca
tions, and that by Collectors' depu
ties. Of the remainder, there has
been paid in settlement of accounts
10.732 97, and judgment obtained
for 83,890 14 more. Now, in these
fitte u cases the moral responsibility
of appointing these delinquents rests
as follows :
Appointed by Buchansn
Appointed by Llucoln ...

and three Johnson appointments.
udgment has been obtained amount
ing to 50,732 97, and paid in full.
n every case the suit has been
brought, or tbe judgment obtained,
by the law officers of this administra
tion, and in the three cases of actual
embezzlement, those of Deputy Col
lectors Bowerman and Wilson, at
Baltimore, and Wellman, at Savan
nah, the two former are in the Peni
tentiary, and the latter is under in
dictment for trial, ir it be said that
not in this direction ate the corrup
tions in tbe customs service to be
looked for, I reply that I am dealing
witb tbe one point only of tbe official
integrity ot tbe administration ap
pointments, and that the administra
tion stands pledged by its action in
other departments to attempt the
reformations of the abuses of tbe
customs service, as existing in the
several custom bouses, wbicb no ad
ministration has ever yet succeeded
STATES TREASURER'S OFFICE.
Next we will take the office of the
United States Treasurernot in the
nature of a comparison with other
years, for it has been under one head
for eleven years past but in the na
ture of a contrast of its almost in
comprehensible amount of business,
witb tbe per centage ot losses from
the crime of embezzlement or defal
cation on the part of the Treasurer's
employes. I do this because Gen
Spinner is a tried and faithful officer,
a steadfast Republican, and because
bis administration sbows results in
this respect believed to be without a
parallel in the history of financial
transactions. Tbe following table
shows the aggregate yearly cash
transactions of bis office for a period
of eleven years, six months, and nine
days from the 30th of June, 1860,
to tbe 9th day of January. 1872.
This ia simply the amount of cash and
drafts or, in other words, actual
money exposed to the cupidity and
and dishonesty of several hundred
employes and in no wise includes
the large amount of bonds and se
curities deposited in the Treasury as
trust funds. These amounts are the
"clearings" of the Treasury office for
the periods designated :

fTbe three clerks who embezzled
this amount Edwins, Marden and
Johnsonwere appointed under Mr.
Lincoln, and continued thereafter.
Here are transactions involving an
amount of money beyond human
comprehension fifty-five thousand
millions covering over eleven years
of time, and paasirg through the
hands ot three or four thousand dif
ferent people during that period,
with losses sustained through a lack
of official integrity on the part of the
Treasurer a appointees of less than
one dollar on the million, a per cent
age so small as to almost defy calcu
lation, and infinitely less than the
loss from the abrasion of the gold
coin paid into and out of the Treasu
ry during the same time. It is firmly
believed that no parallel for such suc
cess can be found ia history.
THE INTERIOR DEPARTMENT.
Let us take up the Interior De
partment. In the Patent Office, In
dian Office, Census Office and Educa
tional Bureau, there bave been no de
falcations of any kind during the
period named. In the other offices
there have been discovered, since the
4th of March, 1869, thirteen defalca
tions, involving a total of 216,097 95,
of which there has been recovered
107,000, leaving a balance of 109,
097 95, which is fully covered bv re-
sponsible bonds. Of these defalca
tions, nine occurred in the Pension
Bureau, three in the Land Office, and
one in tbe office of the late disburs
ing clerk. The moral responsibility
of appointing these delinquents to
i nice rests as follows:
No. of cases.
Appointed by Johnson s
Appointed by u-m -
of nine pension agents
have defaulted, five were appointed
by Johnson, four by Grant. Tbe
three land officers defaulted were all
appointed by Johnson, as was also the
Disbursing Clerk, whose defalcation
was discovered at the very outset of
the present administration, and who
was last week convicted and sen
tenced for his crime, which was com
mitted before this administration
came into office. I aery etui it fell
to tbe lot of the new administration
of the department to expose tbe
crime of tbe offender, and lo recover
the embezzled money where it conld,
and it is exceedingly probable that
tbe government will not lose a cent
in any of these cases, so careful has
been their management. It should
be added that in these cases, as well
as others, the greater number of
these defalcations ( nine out of the
thirteen) accrued under the last ad
ministration wholly, and that this ad
ministration had no part or responsi
bility in them, save to expose them.
And not only has the Interior De
partment sought to correct tbe abuses
ol trust for which its present manage
ment may be legitimately held re
sponsible, but it has gone into past
administrations, has prosecuted vig
orous and unsparing investigations
into all frauds, and has put under ar
rest and indictment men who have
for five years past flaunted their cor
rupt gains in the very face of tbe
government, of which the Wright
case is a notable fact.
THE POSTOFFICE DEPARTMENT.
We will now take up the record of
the Postoffice Department a de
partment which has been as cause
lessly assailed as any in the govern
ment, Some of its bureaus had be
gan to be looked upon by their former
beads as tbeir personal and- life
property when the new admin stra
ti on made changes. The old occu
pants packed up their personal prop
erty, and, in one instance, a great
deal that was not personal, and, as it
is generally the case with such peo
ple, set np in the claim and contract
business. Not faring any better in
the long run than any other agents,
they bave, it is known, to some ex-
tent been used by disappointed and
baffled sharpers in furnishing certain
distorted facts upon which to found
reckless charges. But investigation
of these charges has been cordially
invited, and if the scamps who have
failed to bleed the department do not
aneak beyond the jurisdiction of the
Sergeant at-Arms, there will be some
THE POSTOFFICE DEPARTMENT—GENERAL
Since March 4, 1869. suits have

less than one thousand dollars each.
The suits are brought to enforce set

glected, or evaded, for a variety
of reasons. In most cases it is either

has refused to allow. Tbe moral re
ponsibillty of the appointment of
these delinquents rests as follows :
No. of eases.

Appointed by uraul.
THE POSTOFFCE DEPARTMENT—MONEY
Since the 4th of March, 1869, the
epartment, upon investigation, has
discovered sixteen defalcations in
tbe money crder account, varying
in amount from 26.96 to 115,000
and covering, all told, the sum of
156,639 63. Tbe two largest cases
weretbose or J. V. Morton, Super
iotendent. Money Order Account,
New York City (115,000), and T.
G. Simma, Postmaster at Atlanta, Ga.
(22,696 37.) These defaulters were
appointed as follows.
Appointed by Lincoln.
Appointed by Johosun
Appointed by uranl..
Norton was originally appointed
a clerk in the New York Postoffice,
during Mr. Lincoln's first term, and
was promoted from time to time.
Simms was appointed by Johnson,
and was immediately removed by
Grant, when the defalcation was dis
covered. He was indicted in the
United States District Court, tried,
and acquitted on a remarkable charge
from the Judges, that, while there
was no question of the deficit, the
government had failed to prove that
he intended improperly to expend it.
Norton was originally appointed un
der Lincoln, and made Money Order
Superintendent under Johnson, and
the exposure of his fraud was the
the result of the Department's own
efforts in investigation. His bonds
men, among whom is Hon. Horace
Greely, have pledged the whole
amount, and it will be recovered.
Norton has been arrested and held
for trial. The only other defalcation
in this department since March 4,
1869, ia that of F, A. McCartney, late
Disbursing Clerk of tbe department,
for 936,000. He was arrested, held
for trial, and died in the insane asy
lum last summer from the shock of a
broken heart upon a broken consti
tution. The man who seduced him
Into putting the Government's money

and his administration about "saud

tbe cupidity and want of official in

there a better record in any civil
service in the world ?
THE WAR DEPARTMENT.
The records ot the defalcation in
the War and Navy departments
afford no criterion by which to judge
o' the crucial integrity of the appoint
ments of any administration. The
only responsibility to which tbe civil
administration of these department
can be held is the degree ot rigor
with which the rules and regulations,
designed to protect the disbursment
of public funds are enforced ; and it
has been because of the fearlessness
with which these regulations have
been enforced by the men now in
cbarge that the defalcations which
are charged against these depart.
ments have been Lrought to hsht
The most notable instance, to wit:
the Hodge defalcation, began in 1866,
and entirely escaped notice during
the whole of the last administration
to be exposed in this, because of the
enforcement of a regulation which
rendered Its further concealment Im
possible. Although the present ad
ministration can in no wise be held
responsible for the appointment of
Hedge, or any like him J include the
net amount of his defalcation and
that of two small cases in the Freed-
man's Bureau in the aggregate. The
esses in the Freemen's Bureau are
those of William Wiggins, agent for
payment ot bounties at Wilmington,
Del, forging checks and collecting
monrys due claimants for back pay
and bounty, viz: $3,649 79. The
whole amount was recovered. Wig:
gins was tried, convicted, and sen
tenced to ten years' imprisonment
The other case is that Lieut Graham
and S G. Burbridge, of Kentucky,
who were charged with conspiring to
deirana tbe government in the pay
ment of bounties. The amount in
volved is 5,500. and the arrest and
trial of the parties has been ordered.
The system now enforced in the
War Department renders it impossi
ble that any large defalcation should
occur. Tbe inspection of disbursing
officers' accounts under the direct
order ot the Secretary has been go
ing on with great severity lor sever
al months, and the reports are ol a
very satisfactory character.
THE NAVY DEPARTMENT.
Like the War Department, the de
falcations in the Navy Department. L
e., among officers in the navy service,
aflord no criterion by which tbe re
sponsibility of any administration
for the appointment of the defaulters
is to be judged. Nodefalcations have
occurred in tbe Navy Department,
any part ot which have accrued since
this administration came into power.
The department, however, since the
4th of March, 1869, has unearthed,
by its own action, tour cases where
the defalcations had been carried on
for years undiscovered. In July,
1869, the Secretary ot the Navy (Mr.
Robeson wes appointed June 25,
1869), issued an order compelling
all Paymasters to deposit the bal
ances they reported on their books.
As fast as Paymasters came home
this order was enforced, and it dis
closed four cases of defalcation, vizu
those of Paymasters Marcy, Lock
wood, Giraud, add l'arker, the par
ticulars of which are well known.
They were all tried, convicted, and
cashiered. The net loss in these
four cases is about 165,000. In
politics, three out ot four were
Democrats, and they were all ap
pointed years ago. The only re
sponsibility to which either ot these
departments can be held in these
matters is tor tbe prevention, dis
covery, and punishment of such
crimes. That responsibility is sat
isfactorily assumed. Not a single
offender has escaped.
HOW THE ADMINISTRATION DEALS WITH
It is instructive to note the manner
in which the present administration
deala with detaulters. I will take all
the prominent cases that have come
to the notice of the public during the
past two years, and whose defalca
tions cover nearly tbe entire amount
set down as tbe net loss during that
Marcy, Naval Paymaster, defaulter
at Mare Island, California : cashiered.
Lockwood, Giraud, and Parker,
Naval Paymasters, defaulted on dis
tant stations ; cashiered.
J. Ledyard Hodge, defaulter in
Paymaster-General's office; in Albany
Penitentiary for ten years.
J. F. Bailey, defaulting Internal
Revenue Collector, New York ; fled
tbe country to avoid arrest
Bowman and Wilson, defaulting
Deputy Collectors of Customs at Bal
timore ; convicted and in prison.
J. W. Norton, defaulting Money
Order Superintendent, New York;
under arrest for trial
Geo. B. Wellman, defaulting Dep
uty Collector of Customs at bavan
nah: under indictment
Internal Revenue Collector Gould,
and Supervisor Kizyzanouski, con
s piracy to embezzle.Georgia ; indict
ed ; former fled the country ; latter
held for trial.
Wm. Wiggin, defaulting Freed
men's Bureau Agent ; convicted and
sentenced to ten years imprison
F. A. McCartney, defaulting Post-
office Disbursing Clerk ; died in in
sane asylum before he could be tried.
C. . Edwins, embezzling Treasury
Clerk ; convicted and in prison.
F. A. Marden, embezzling Treas
ury Clerk ; convicted and in prison.
Seth Johnson, embezzling Treasury
Clerk; under indictment and will
certainly be convicted.
S. B Kendig, defaulting Disburs
ing Clerk, Interior Department;
convicted and in prison.
The responsibility of the appoint
ment of only four of the above sev
enteen cases rests upon this admin
istration ; but it has inflicted punish
ment on all who have been tried,
while two have fled the country.
A CONTRAST OF LOSSES AND TEMPTATIONS
Let us now contrast the business
of the government, for three fiscal
years, with the losses sustained
through the want of official integrity
on the part ot its subordinatea. The
net revenue receipts and the expen
ditures for that time are as follows :
luree y" ,
Now the actual net ascertained
losses caused by the dixhou
esty of government officials
during same lime. Including
war and navy defalcations,
which ia barely equal to one sixteenth
of one per cent, on the dollar. And
if we add to this amount of loss by
defalcation every cent, in jeopardy,
for wnich the government has
brought suit most of which will be
recovered the total would be $2,
301,621 82, or about on ninth of one
per cent, on the dollar. Is there any
private business in the world that
can compare with this ?
PUTTING THE RESPONSIBILITY WHERE
But, in order that the responsibility
of these losses should be placed
where it properly belongs, which is
the real object of this statement, one
more illustration is necessary.
Grant's administration is charged
with appointing more incompetent
and corrupt men to office than any
that have preceded it Let us take
the total number of cases of recorded
misconduct which have been dis
closed since it came into office, or of
funds in controversy, with theaggre-
gave amount of money Involved, an J

Now. pet haps, it makes little differ
ence, so fir as the morality of the
case is concerned, whether one six
teenth of 1 per cent, or 16 per cent
is embezzled. But when you come to
discuss the question as to whs em
bezzles it, it does make a great des1
of difference. And if this article w as
not already too long, the comparison
might be earned back several years,
witb still more striking results. The
point here demonstrated is that the
cbarge that the standard of tbe great
mass of the men in tbe civil servi-;
not being improved, is false. V .
men denounce the civil service as
"the worst the world ever saw' it
shows that they don't know what
they are talking about that they are
chattering slander and misrepresen
tation without investigation, or any
regard for truth. No doubt the civil
service can be greatly improved, and
no men have given a more effective
demonstration of their intention to
improve it than those at present in
power. In conclusion, I invite the
attention of candid people and "re
formers" also to the facts here set
forth. If I have "set down caught

A Boston correspondent furnishes
the follow in particulars about the
late Fisk and Mrs. Fisk ; "When he

Marsh de Co., he and his wife boarded
at the Tremont House. Subsequent

stiU connected with that firm, be

He and Mrs. Fisk visited Europe
some years since, and Mrs. Fisk,
accompanied by her friend, Mrs.
Fanny Ilarrod, (who was formerly a
school teacher in this city,) and Mr.
A. J. Pollard, who was Fisk's ex
press agent here, made second
European tour last summer. Thera
was no estrangement whatever be
tween Mr. and Mrs. Fisk, as would
have seemed natural. The latter has
lived in expensive style, her husband
furnishing the money. Her stylish
carriage is well known in our streets,
and it is the same in which the Col
onel was wont to ride when he was
here. In the .course cf his Sunday
visits he transacted an immense
amount of business, after holding a
continuous levee at the house in
Chester Square. It was currently
reported some years ago that the
deceased bad placed in trust far his
wife a considerable sum of money, to
gnard either one or both against a
rainy day." Then it was variously
estimated from two to three hundred
thousand dollars to a million dollars.
The trustees were said to be well
known Boston gentlemen. When
Mrs. Fisk was recently in Enr

half so gorgeouely as the fanciful
writer sought to array Mrs. FLk.

article, which was extensively copied
in this country, Bostonians have no
means of knowing, for the lady dres

ANECDOTES OF RATS.
The following curious anecdote
furnishes another instance of the oc
casional confidence of animals in
others which they are supposed to
regard generally as their natural
enemies. "Some years since I lived
in the village of Ickletou, in Cam
bridgeshire. After my shooting ex
cursions the dogs were fed in their
kennels, the food being placed in a
long trough. To this duty I gener
ally attended myself. Upon one oc
casion, after feeding the dogs, I
looked into the kennel through a hob
in the door, and was somewhat aston
ished, not at perceiving a number of
rats there, but to see them in the
trough, quietly and fearlessly par
takiug of bread snd milk with the
dogs, who seemed to payno attention
to such 'small deer.' I doomed the
rats to destruction; and the. next
day placed the trough in such a posi
tion, that gun pointed through the
hole .would rake It Irom one end to
the other. At the usual hour the
food was pi.iul a a lure but the -dogs
