A Sign of the Times.
Sailors inform ns that when rats that
have fattened on a ship's larder begin to
desert her it is a sign- that she is going to
sink. Common experience teaches us
that when a similar phenomenon is seen
in politics, that is, when persons who have
fattened on a party begin to desert it, and
talk about forming a new organization, it
is a sign that the abandoned party is on
the eve of a disaster. Just such a phe
nomenon is to be witnessed at this time.
The scene is Washington city, the head
quarters of Radicalism, and the theatre of
wnatever 01 glory and shame belong to
it. There is no notable sign of trouble in
the sky. The air, indeed, is- thick and
oppressive, and is crowing; more thick
and oppressive every day : bot there is no
black tempest in the heavens, no dashing
of trees together in the forest, no rising
of the sea, no quaking of the earth.
Everything is "idle as a nainted ship up
on a painted ocean." But in the midst
of this laneuid picture perspicacious Radi
cals are seen stealing away from their
own camp, with Us xountersiens and
watchwords fresh on their lips, and meet
ing together in the national capital to con
sult about a new party : and the move
ment foretells a cominar disruption of Radi
calism as sorely as the unerring fall of the
baromter portends a storm at sea.
Radicalism has exhausted itself; it has
played everything in its repertoire; it has
done all the good it can do. and all the
evil the people will allow it to do, and it
stands now, without a coherent design,
without a hope, without an aspiration
without a future, and with the uneasy
memories of its crimes trooping thick and
fast before its vision. It spent its last
vigor on the Fifteenth Amendment, and
has not enough strength left to pass the
Funding bill, the Tariff hill, the 8an Do
mingo treaty, nor any ovner Qistmguisn
ing measure recommended by President
Grant's Administra ion. Even the bill for
the third reconstruction -of Georgia re
mains on its hands undisposed of, like
stock of unseasonable merchandise which
its owner would not sell when he could
and cannot sell when he would Whether
to give Georgia over to Bullock or to
bayonets or to its people, is the plainest
of questions; tint, plain as it is, the snort
breathed and dying party has not yet been
able to answer it. The maionty in uon
gress are dividing into -factions on the
tariff question, on the finance question
and on the subject of reducing the
taxes ; the President stands without
party to respond to his mast urgent re
quests. Mr. Bqatwell is defeated on the
Funding bill aSti on the Tariff bill : Mr
Logan leads a ' powerful and popular
movement for a reduc'ien of the army

ened toe tariff, monopoly on their con

constantly going on that leave scars on
the most prominent and conspicuous offi
cials of the party and fill the defrauded
people with disgust ; New England is
desperately essaying to perpetuate its ma
lign sectional power over the West by in
sisting on having the new Congressional
apportionment based on the old census of
I860, instead of the forthcoming census of
1870. These be signs of coming trouble,
and it is a perception of the inevitable
crash that prompted a number of sagacious
Radicals to meet at Washington a few
days ago, and decide that a new party is
This conclave of pioneers adopted a
platform of three planks, viz : A tariff
for revenue exclusively ; specie payments,
and reform in the civil service. All these
are Democratic dogmas, and all of them
find a foe in the Radical party. It is the
ruling party alone that maintains a pro
tective tariff monopoly ; it is that party
alone that provides specie for one class of
debts, and paper for another class; and it
is the unnumbered and stupendous frauds
of that party alone, that has made a re
form in the civil service necessary. The
proposed new-party, therefore, in array
ing itself against one of the two existing
parties, practically declares in favor of
the other. It simply proposes to accom
plish a part of the task, which the latter
has allotted to Itself, and i's proper place,
therefore, is in the ranks of that opposition
whicn must rise to eminence and influence
as Radicalism goes down in disgrace.
But the proposed new party does not go
far enough ; it wishes to leave too much
undone that needs to be done. The res
toration of the Judiciary to its ancient
dignity, independence and authority,
the stern and emphatic denial of the
transcendent authority that Congress
has so lawlessly usurped, and so
oppressively used ; a reduction in
the sum of annual taxes now need
lessly exacted of the people ; a simplifica
tion of the revenue system that will rid it
of its arbitrary and espionage features :
and the concession to the population of
the West, of the influence and respect that
they are entitled to these are some of
the needed things that the Democracy
propose to effect with the support and ap
proval of the people, but which the pro
posed new party leaves entirely out of its
young programme. Indeed, it looks very
much as though the new party now being
brought to light at Washington was sim
ply a device to make the best possible
terms for a party in power that sees an
Inevitable defeat before it to muffle its
fall, and throw oblivion over its great
crimes. If this be its object, it will surely
fail. The ruling party must take its
chances ; it cannot claim exemption from
responsibility. It must defend its policy,
and stand or fall with it. If it is being
derided and denounced by its own adhe
rents, and if conspiracies are being formed
again ft it in its own camp, these are the
unvarying logical results of every arro
gant and oppressive abuse of power. Radi
calism! is near its en J, and need not give
itself the trouble to predispose of its ef
fects before death ; that will be done by
its proper successor. Miuouri Republican.
Colfax as an Office Dispenser.
As we stated last week, we will give
the reader a report that has reached us
concerning a transaction in a naval cadet
ship, in which the "smiler, " Colfax, fig
ured. We give the statement as we
heard it :
About four years ago, when Colfax was
Speaker of tbe House, he visited Logans
port. While there, a Mr. B tt applied
to him. for a cadetship for his son in the
Naval Academy, at Annapolis. Colfax
took the youth's name, and promised the
father that his son should be appoint
ed as Boon as he returned to Washington.
Mr B tt rested his case here, having
the most implicit confidence in the
" smiler. " In a week or two after, how
ever, Laporte was visited by a Mr. B r,
a peddler or broker in offices, who hinted
to Mr. B - tt that he.understood his son
dtajfed a cadetship ; that there was con
siderable red tape business to be gone
through with in such cases ; but, for the
consideration of $500, he would secure
the position for his son. Mr. B tt was
indignant 'at the idea. He had taken the
word of the Christian statesman and pro
fessional "smiler" that his son should
have the "position. B tt did not
bite at the bait. But a Dr. McC.
did. He "Wanted his son appointed, and
$ 500 was a mere trifle. His son was ap
pointed, and Mr. B r, the office ped
dler, or oroKer, had transterrcd
$500 in shares of Logansport Gas company
stock, by Mr. McC.

stock was afterwardTtransferred to Colfax

If Gen. Howard desires to save anything
whatever ot his reputation he should im
mediately close out the remnant of it at
cost. Much of the world .suspected all
along that he was Singing and shouting

suspicion. His conspicuous piety was as
a mere cry ot " stop tniet to divert the
popular gaze from those little schemes of
personal aggrandizement ot his which
have cost the Government so many tens
ot thousands ot dollars.
A majority of the committee before
whom the investigation is going on are
trie political mends or Ueneral Howard,
but they are powerless to shield the char
acter for honesty and piety he has taken
so much pains to build up, and it is being
rapidly swept away. ' It has been proven
that he purchased the ground where the
Howard University now stands and erect
ed the building out of the funds appropri
ated by Congress for the Freedmen's Bu
reau. They have also proved that General
Howard was largely interested in the
manufacture of patent brick, out of which
the Howard University is constructed
that the money for these brick was paid
out of the Bureau funds. It is also in
evidence that he asked . and received an
acre of the land purchased for. the How
ard University by the Bureau fundsrfor
himself, and that he has erected, a private
residence upon it all at the expense
the Bureau The trusteesef the University
have testified that the institution is a pri
vate corporation, in no sense connected'
with the Government,-' that the Govern
ment nas no control or it and does not re
ceive any revenue or benefit from It.
the same time it is held that, the mmey
for its erection was paid out of the Gov
ernment funds, and that the salaries of
professors and teachers are now paid out
of the Bureau fund. Builflers and archi
tects havetestified that the material known
as the patent brick, out of which the
building was constructed, is worthless
building purposes, and that it would not
answer for private dwellings, much less
for a large public building.
Many other facts are to be developed
before the investigation is ended. A num
ber of other witnesses against Howard are
ready to testify, and it is said that charges
ot a still more damag ng character will

A Brief Sketch of an Eminent Banker.
As nations advancefin wealth and num
bers, and as their commercial affairs mul
tiplv, the character of their private bank
ing firms becomes of the highest impor
tance. Trade watches the manipulations of
those who handle its medium of exchange
with the keenest and most anxious scru
tiny. Distrust in reference to the pro
cesses that transfer money is instantly
felt to the remotest extremity of the body
politic, and in order to keep tbe latter in
healthy action, the flow must be pure and
regular in a business point of view, and
must- sweep through uncontaminated
We have been lead to these remarks by
careiui observation oi some ot our nigh
toned banking hrms, and the saving in
nuence which they have exercised over
business by the excellence of their ex
ample. Among these the house of Henry
CleWs & Co. has become eminent, of late
ytars, for those qualities that should dis-
nmraisn the financial calling.
Henry Clews. Esq., the senior partner
and head of this esteemed house a native
of England, and about thirty-six years of
age came to the United states as early
as 1849, with his father, whose heavy con
nection with American trade gave the
young man an immediate opportunity of
noting the active, enterprising and yet
peculiarly practical tone ot our people.
The latter so won upon him that he de
term in ed to abandon the study for the
ministry, which had been his first inten
tion, and betake himself to business.
With this view he quickly sought and ob
tained a clerkship in one of the most
prominent woolen houses of the day
wnere ms untiring industry lor a proba
tionary term of nine years his integrity
promptitude, intelligence, and, at the same
time, hie excellent personal habits and
amiability' of temperament, gave him solid
position, and won for him, literally, hosts
of friends. Mr. Wilson G. Hunt, the head
ot me house where he wast bus employed
bestowed upon him the highest marks of
approval as his service lengthened, and,
at last, when Mr Clews sought an inde
pendent path, vouched for his ability and
At the early age of twenty-five, Mr
Clews became a member of the enterpris
ing banking firm of Stout, Clews & Ma
son. Alter one or two change? ot title,
but all the while rising in public esteem,
the house is now established, and respect
ed, far and wide, under the title of Henry
Clews & Co.
The same energy, clear-sightedness and
activity, which had given the subject of
our sketch his nrst success, a' tended him
as he advanced. From dealing in com
mercial paper, he took up Government
securities, when heavy loans were con
tinually negotiated for the nation. The
needs of the country were pressing, and
in the patriotism and intellect ot Mr
Clews, found timely help. By his argu
ments and ready investments, other capi
talists were encouraged to step forward at
the moment when weaker heads and
colder hearts were afraid to indorse the
Union loan. To his example, Mr. Clews
added tne influence ot personal represen
tation, and by his agreeable manners, as
well as by the resources ot his thorough
business knowledge, carried many a firm
wiin mm in me good work, which other
wise might have stood aloof. His faith
never Bwerved in the darkest hours of
the country's trials, and as the clouds
grew more somber, his enthusiasm only
At length, in 1864-65, the Clews con
cern had raised its business operations to
several millions per diem, of which the
National loan received a goodly share.
At last the war terminated, and Mr.
Clews and his associates found themselves
among the wealthiest and most distin
guished of American bankers. This posi
tion was easily maintained and steadily
improved, until 1868, when all stock
operations for members of the firm, either
individually or collectively, were, by writ
ten agreement, abandoned. As the coun
' try, resuming its act i v ity , began to breathe
freely again, and the busy hum of railroad
preparation was heard from all quarters,
making ready for a new development of
national prosperity, Mr. Clews found fresh
opportunities for beneficial investment,
and of these his sagacious mind and ac
quired experience made brilliant use. The
national securities, which he held, were
sold by him to an extent sufficient to set
free a considerable amount of the capital
that he had placed in them, and these
funds were, at once, reinvested in railroad
loans. At the present time, the Clews
firm are the financial agents of some
the most important roads in the United
The passing visitor in Wall street has
bat to glance at the busy throng which
hurries in and out of their spacious offices
in the edifice formerly used by the United
States Treasury, through the working
day, in order to feel satisfied that Mr.
Clews has a large measure of public con
fidence and esteem. The impression
general, that when his name appears in
connection with any projected improve
ment, all is well. Nor is Mr. Clews un
accustomed to express his financial
opinions with terseness and power. He
wields a trenchant pen, and the highest
financial intellects in the land have
profited by his suggestions.
. Still in the prime of manhood, Mr.
Clews stands upon an eminence to which
few others have been able to climb. Be
hind and around him lie beautifully
ordered, the evidences ot untiring exer
tions, that have sustained and extended
the welfore of the country, and filh-d his

As a general rule, fruits succeed better
In a wooded country, when new and par
tially cleared, than elsewhere or ever af
terward. This is prooaDiy owing wj sev
eral different causes ; but. the principal
ones are scarcity of noxious insects, rich
fness of soil, and the protection received
rom the remaining forests. Without
wishing to depreciate the value of forests
as a protection to orchards and gardens,
still we cannot agree With some writers
who have of late endeavored to show that
they are the one thing needful to make
our orchards once more productive, and
cause the fruit to grow without spot - or
blemish. Even if, by restoring one-halt
of the original forests, this could be ef
fected, it would still be a doubtful policy,
inasmuch as the gain In one product must
necessarily cause a corresponding loss in
