VVabhington, D. C, March 13, 1S78.
The most interestiog portion of the
house proceedings yesterday was the
speech of Mr. Hewitt of New York. It
wag directed towards the
CIVIL SKRVICE REFORMS
of Mr. Hayes. It is a Bpcceh which, It
Messrs. Hayes, Sherman and Suburz are
to play any part iu the politics of the
next three years, should be read by all. It
was full ot points, perhaps the best ol
which was that arraigning Mr. Hayes
for appointing to ofllec all those who ass
slstcd in the criminal acta and extra con
stitutional methods by which he was
counted in, while refusing office to the
leaders of his own party because to re
ward political support was demoralizing
to the civil service. By all means this
excellent speech should be circulated:
Mr. Hewitt, however, went out ot bis
way to assert th.t the title ot Mr. Hayes
to the presidency was pericct. It my
memory serves mo, several aspiring pol
iticians, from ;Malne to the south west
DAMAGED THK1K fROSrKCIS
by this volunteering an uncalled for de
fence of that title, it is safe tor Demo
crats to leave such defence to llepubll

assault upon the

Like tho position assumed by him on the
silver bill, however, his proposition,
which looks to an ultimate refusal to pay
tbe award, is one that will lmvo few
tricuas. VYe must puy that money and
then see that we are not caught agaiu.
Oo last Wednesday
TBB ARMY BILL,
being Baoulng'e bill amended, was re
ported to the house. The following is
an abstract of its material features.
Before July 1, 1978, the numlier ot en
listed men shall be reduoed to 20,000.
There shall be six cavalry regiments,
three artillery regiments and fifteen Ins
fantry regiments. The bureau of mill
tary justice is abolished. The quarter
master's department and the subsistence
department are abolished, and a depart
ment of supplies takes their place. The
adlutant, inspector and paymaster gen-
eral's offiut are materially reduoed in the
Bomber oi their officers, and further ap-
TBI alBDICAL DKFARTMKMT
are prohibited., There shall be no ap
pointments as muior-gonoral until there
shall be no ollicer ot that grade, and
thereafter there shall bo but one. There
shall be but three oficers of the grade of
brtgadicr-gencral Provision Is made for
the appointment, aa officers, of enlisted
num. The act greatly reduces the num
ber ot oflkers, and thereby effects a con
siderable saving of money. Another
bill reduces the pay ol thoso officers who
are retained. Taking the two bills to-
nother, the saving will be considerable',
but not nearly as much as it should be.

In an appreciative notice of Martin J,
Townscnd, a Republican member from
New Yojk, it compares him with vari
ous leaders of tbe house, and, among
them, with Hale of Maine. It says the
difference between them is as great as
that between "an unwashed ape and a
Roman general." This Is severe on the
Maine statesman, but perhaps expresses
the common Idea since Halo lost the aid
ot Blalno as speaker. The first of

Mr. Ilayes gets the first single dollar

cautions were taken to have these per

tbe unfair tactics of some of tho Demo
cratic papers of tbe district notably the
Cairo Bulletin in treating Mr. Ilart
aell as out of the race :
In discussing this matter, and in an at
tempt at punning In another place, the
Clarion has perpetrated an injustice on
Hon. John H. Oberiy. That gentleman
haying long been the able editor and
proprietor of the Bulletin, tho writer
of the article in tho Clarion at the tin e
it was punned and published, was not
aware that ho had served his
connection therewith. The Clar
ion knew Mr. Oberiy as a gens
tlemau ot ability, both as a speaker and
writer, and whose talents would entitle
him to aspire to a seat to congress, when
fitting opportunity presented and be
lieving bim to be the editor in chief of
the Bulletin, the conclusion was jumped
at, that the Bullbtw desired Mr. Uait
zell out ot the ring as a posslblecandidate;
that Mr. Oberiy might be his successor.
We have no tincture of unfrien Illness
toward Mr. Oberiy, nor would we lntens
tlonally do him an injustice If we bad.
Tbe writer ot this article has a high opin
ion of the talent and ability ot that gen
tleman, and while he disagrees with him
as to some points of political policy, he
recognizes him as a leading and influents
ial Democrat, who has a right to seek the
congressional nomination ol the party in
the district equal at least, with that ot
Mr. Hartzell or auy other gentleman. In
an open letter to Mr. Potter, published in
the Bulletin, a few days since, and In a
private letter to tho editor of the Clarion,
Mr. Oberiy states that be has no connec
tion with the Bulletin, and that be is
not a candidate tor congress, nor would
he accept a nomination at this time, if
In intimating the reverse of this, last
week, we were not actuated by any feel
ing of unfriendliness to Mr. Oberiy. We
desired only fair treatment for Mr. Hart
zell that bis claims should be considered
by the Democracy of the district on
equal footing with those of any other as
pirantsand we are glad to know that
some one else Inspired the idea that Mr.
Hartzell was ineligible tor a third term.

HOUSEWIVES USE WASHINE
"Last week I bought a 10 cent package of Washine and done my washing in one hall
the usual time at less than half the cost of Soap. My clothes were whiter. I did not
have to rub them, und it did not shrink ray woolens, and for once I was enahied to get
hot dinner oo Monday. So ladles try it, and you will save labor, time and money, it is
perfectly safe to use it. MRS. A.
