IThe annnal report of the Board of Health
shows the mortality of Washington City
last year to have been seventeen and fifty-
eight hundredths In the thousand. The
tftUUatics of the smallpox visitation of Jaat

the cases weronmong colored people.

pended First National Bank of Washing
ton, will bo ready In a few days to pay over
to the government about one hundred thou
sand dollars, and abouftwenty-five or thirty
per cent to depositors. The point is made
by'somo parties in Washington that the gov
ernment does not stand in the position of a
preferred creditor of the suspended Ijank.
It appears that there is a question of
veracity between Senators Cameron and
Conklin. The Washington correspondent
of the Cincinnati Gazette, writing on the
25th inst., states the matter as follows;
"Senitor Conklin, when hsre, denied tho
storv In circulation that he had said to Sen-
"ator Cameron that he would not accept the
position of Chief Justice if it were offered
to him.. , He says, further, that he has had
cd'ceriversaUon with any public men about
rthisTDOfitlon since Mr. Chase died. There
la no doubt, however, of Cameron's having
made the statement attributed to mm."
It appears that one of Grant's pets is
about to gat into trouble. The Washington
cirrespondent of the Cincinnati Gazette
writes, Oct. 20:
J The Attorney General has made a formal
demand upon Henry D. Cooke for about
thirtv-three thousand dollars, funds of tbe
Reform School of this district, which he held
xs Treasurer, and -which were lost in the
Tint National Bank. Unless this money
is returned, it is the intention of the de
partment to enter a personal suit as against
a government officer, since the trustees of
tbe institution are appointed ana commis
sioned by the President, and the Treasurer
Is designated by them subject to the ap-

TheDesiioines State Register of the

counties, fifty-eight of which give Carpen

.joritiea aggregating 8,014, making Carpen
ter's net majority in tho eighty-three coun

The Cincinnati Times, a Republican jour
nal, takes this view of the result:
"We are not of the number of those wl o
find solid consolation in saying that the
Democratic triumph in Ohio was duo to the
fact that more Republicans than Democrats
stayed away from tho polls. Other causes
than mere indolent apathy kept thousands
of Republicans from votiug. Nor is It by
any means certain that none of the votes
for Allen, Stewart and Collins were by men
who have heretofore voted tho Republican
ticket. We may as well courageously face
the certainty that without thorough Repub
lican reform the party is in a bad way, and
will go on from bad to worse. Our hope is
intnespplication of dec'sive remedies by a
Republican Consress, cordially sustained

"The development of American Mann
facturep," says the New York Times,
"must greatly depend upon their success in
competing with those of Great Britain."
Well, it never has depended to any great
extent upon anything else. Among other
things, that it does not now depend upon,
we reckon protection. It Is ths rise in the
cost of pro cueing iron in England,
that now enables American Iron
to begin to enter upon the field
of compstition; and but for pro
tection, which taxes the consumer for the
benefit of the monopolies, wo might hope
to see tbe United States become at no dis
tant day the Iran shop of the world. That
great era will come at last in spite of the
temporary perverseness of. the human un
derstanding. But there remains no doubt
that it has been long postponed by the sue
cess of protectionists in imposing restraints
and diversions upon the natural course of
We give below some facts which indicate
that iron protection has "outlived its use
fulness, and that a future is dawning, in
which tho American iron-trade must take
the lead in the world. Tho average rate
per ton of pig-iron exported from Great
Britain was, in gold value, for 1870, equal
to $13.77; in 1871, S15.40, and in 1872 it
had risen to $25.22. The incress8
In the quantity exported last year
over that oi lb7l was twenty
eight per cent., whilo the incease in
price on certain qualities was as high as 108
per cent. The cost of building first-class
iron steamers on tbe Clyde has,. risen from
S120, gold, par ton, in 1S71, to about 100 in
1S72. Again, a marine engine whicl
1871 could be bui't for $200 per horse pow
er, cost last year $23U, ana this year tne
prica has pdvanced to from $285 to $300 per
horse power. An ordinary pissenger loco
motive which in 1871 would cost $11,000,
would now bo charged $13,000. Upon
these facls and others, the2ew York Times
reasons as follows :
"It is extremely improbable that Great
Britain will have cheaper coal for soveral
years to come, and tne present wages stana,

the list of exports from New York for ths
week ending Oct. 22, there are the follow
ing items: J?or Chili, two steam boilers,
$40,000, and forty-six railroad cars, $75,000.
This is but a slender business to build any
ceneial conclusiors upon, but It may fairly
b3 accepted as an indication ot anew move

EX-SECKEXABY BOTJT WMJC OX IX
The New York Times of the 22d inst.,
contains a report of ex-Secretafy Bout
well's address in that city on finance and
tho panic, which from tho ability and large
experience of the Bpeaker, deserves more
than a passing notice. Before the war, he

As Secretary of the Treasury during Gen.
Grant's first term, ha commanded tho con
fidence of the country beyond Ms associates
in tho cabinet, and his utterances in his re
cent lecture are received with great lespect
Mr. Bontwell estimates the present cur
rency st seven hundred million dollars. He
remarks that some want a contraction with
a view to resume specie payments soon;
whilo others demand more currency to take
the placo of greenbacks and bank notes
hoarded, as though government paper was
bolter than other property or security. He
very proberly points to over-tradirg. and
speculating at home and abroad as the
causes of the panic and suspension of banks
to pay greenbacks. The cost of transport
ing our exports to foreign ports, and bring-
ing back our imports is put at ono hundred
million dollars a year. Of this work foreign
ships and seamen do 73 per cent, and
American seamen and ships 27 per cent.
If Americans did their own carrying it
would save seventy-three million dollars of
tho heavy gold balance every year against
tho industry of the United States. Mr.
Bontwell says that Our banks can redeem
their notes in specie, provided tbe balance of
trade, including the interest due on govern
ment bonds held in Europe, i3 not over
$125,000,000 a year. So long a3 the balance
against the industry of the country is some
$200,000,000 per annum, the demand for
gold for export is almost euro to rob our
circulating medium of its precious metals.
It Is obvious that neither banks nor cur
rency can wholly restrain the public
from abusing its credit system.
Habits of general extravagance like intoxi
cation, are much easier seen and condemn
ed than cured. The ex-Secretary censures
the practice of banks that pay interest on
deposits, as unsafe to all pirues and in
jurious to the public It is eaid to promote
spscnlstion at tho expense of sound legiti
mate trade and transportation. As between

THE BAU.ROADS AND THE.PANIC.
"The New YorS Bulletin and Times come
to the front with some reflections upon the
condition of the railroad system, and some
adv.'ca to railroad men and the public
They speak knowingly and with confidence
as far as they go, but they are evidently can
tious, not to comprehend too much o( the
subject in the scope of their remarks. Tbe
confusion aud uncertainty into which the
business of the country has been precipita
ted by a long course of unrestrained mis
management and bad legislation, is rather
more than the mind can master or devise
means to correct." Anybody, however, can
properly enough and with entire safety and
without hazard or foolhardlness, advise
strict obedience to the ten commandments
in these "panicky" times; exhort men not
to steal, and enlarge upon the necessity of
loving one another. This is well enough.
Indeed,' it is all that can be done
to remedy present evils. These evils are
the inevitable results of bad leg
islation, and perverse encouragement on the
part of Congress to unreasonable and op
pressive enterprises. They are therefore
inherent maladies in all our recent govern
mental policy. Similar deplorable conse
quences may be prevented in future by
wise reformation; by which we mean an
universal upraising of the prostrated public
virtue of Americt, and a stern resolution
on the part of the people f to retrace their
steps, and regain the road which alone leads
to peace, liberty and safety;" for it must be
confessed that there have been moments of
error. But present misfortunes must large
ly work out their own remedy. The ques
tion is, can we confidently hope that they
will do this? We believe that the cure will
ultimately come. It will be hastened by
mutual honesty, mutual indulgence and
strict, economy. There seems fortunately
enough, to be a general disposition through
out the country to resort to these wholesome
stimulants in order lo revive business activ
ity. There is a higher law, by strict
obedience to which, the world can always
repair the self-inflicted injuries which it has
sustained through Imprudence or ignorance.
That law Is honesty and charitable co-op
In solving tho problem "how to restore
and maintain confidence in railroad securi
ties," the Bulletin urges upon companies
the living necessity of the strictest punctu
ality in settling all past obligations, and
meeting all maturing ones. It mentions
tho fact that this policy has been pursued
so far, and speaks of it in the highest terms,
urging that it be made the fixed rule. It is
the railway industry that has experienced
the first, if not tho severest shock: Through
this, however, quite all of the force of the
crash is being communicated to the other
Industries of the country; and it must be
apparent that it will affect all other indus
tries, nd impinge at last with
grest severity upon the laborers. This
result Is already seen and keenly
felt. There is no other class to which the
laboring masses can shift the weight. The
railroads of the United States have been
constructed at a reported cost of $3,000,.
000,000. Good minorities place the actual
amount of capital paid in at $2,400,000,000.
But they are expected to pay profits on the
whole amount. Of this total cost about
$1,200,000,000 is in bonded indebtedness,
tho interest on which the railroads will have
to pay. Putting the average rato of Inter-
est at seven per cent, this tax on the roads
reaches $84,000,000; but in reality it may
reach $1,000,000,000. Of the 364 railway
lines enumerated in Mr. Poor's manual
for the years 1872 and 1873, only 104 are
set down as paying dividends, and the
dividends which are reported aro not on
the average at nearly so high a rate
as the interest on tho bonds. Tho
same authority reports the gross earn
ings, of tho railroads at $454,769,000, which
is about fifteen per cent, on their nominal
cost. Tho net earnings are about ono-
thlrd of this amount, or $145,000,000.
These figures disclose tho actual condition
of our railroad system, and leave no room
for wonder that it has fallen into so help
less a prostration. But to show how it has
involved the prostration of other industries
in its own calamity, it is only necessary
to note tho extent to which it had develop
ed those industries. Observe how closely
all prosperity is blended with railway thrift.
It is estimated by Mr. Poor that In 1851 the
tonnage carried by the railways was at the
rate of only 464 pounds to the head of pop
ulation. Ten years later, when the lensth
of the roads had trebled, tbe ratio of tonnage
to population was 1,912 pounds per head;
and in 1S71, tho mileage having then doub
led, thesa roads carried 5,000 pounds per
head. The samo progress is shown still
more strikingly by the record of tho valuo
of the tonnage. In 1851 this was $35.34
per head; in 1801 it was $110.42 per hea'd,
and jn 1871 itwas$370 pet-head.. Upon
