What is Ahead.
The schemes proposed by Pre
Eident Grant in hia message, and
which "may be taken as indica
tive of hia programme for the
next term, are exceedingly mng
nificeut.. He recommends the1
adoption of the postal telegraph
system, at an expenditure of from
twelve to twenty millions and an
increase of sixty or eighty thou
sand office-holders; the building
of a ship canal around Niagara
Falls, at the expense of fifteen
to twenty millions more, canals
to connect the Mississippi Valley
with the Atlafitic, at a cost of
fifty millions; "contiguous land
locked navigation from Maine to
the Gulf of Mexico;" and the ex
penditure of twenty-five millions
in mail subsidies " during the
next five years." ' All these in

Rail Road Horror!
The columns of the Daily pa
pers on Christmas morning were
heavily freighted with tidings of
disaster. Fires almost innume
rable, with losses mounting up
into, millions, were reported ;
while the railroads added their
full share to the dismal record.
The accident on the Cross Cat
Road, in Pennsylvania, ia one of
the most' frightful that could be
conceived. . The Enquirer - Bays
that about thirty people, quiet
travellers, were cast down thirty
feet from the road bed, and per
ished amid the 6now and the fire,
, and the ruins of the cars, and the
It is a piteous spectacle, that of a
score and more of thoughtless
travelers, with arms and legs and
heads charred and dropped away;
beautiful hands, cloved and iw-
eled, and no owner; trunkless
heads on one which might read
the storv of Cfinins nr lnc- olan-
ghtered travelers, many of whom
were on their way to the delights
of a Christmas reunion all has
- tened by the tumbling of a car
into a horrible death.
Edward. A. .Pollard, the Boath-
u nu inui iuu juuruuilBl, uicu at
Lynchburg, Va., last week, at
the age of forty-five. Mr. Pol
iara was conspicuous among our
the war he edited the Richmond
Enquirer, wherein he was a caus
tic critic of Jeff Davis and his
policy. Since the war he has re
6ided much of the time at the
North, engaged as a magazinist,
historian, and general writer. -
i- One of the reasons assigned
for the present unparalleled scar-
cuy oi money, is mat it is tax-pay
ing time, and it takes all the raon
Mi 1 M
ey to pay taxes. That may be
tree; but it is not very compli
mentary to the "government" to
be compelled to eay that all the
greenbacks in circulation are re
nnired to nav t.h ta-roa nf tha
dear people who live tinder it.
Colored men were declared, by
a recent decision of a .Washing
ton Court, to be entitled equally
with white men to the -accommo
dations of restaurants. This
judgment has now been reversed,
and the latest judicial contribu
tion to civil rights is the doctrine
that ' restaurant-keepers may
choose their customers.
Certain writers have alleged
that railway construction in the
United States was overdone.
The whole amount invested in
railways in this country is $455,
000,000, which is said to yield
less than five per cent. The re
turn upon the total investment in
English railways, however, ia less
than that percentage.
The House committee on post
offices and postroada have agreed
to recommend the establishment
of the letter carrier system in all
cities and towns- of twenty-thousand
population. Eaton cannot
enjoy the privilege yet !
To those of our citizens who
want to have the President stand
well in England, it will be grati
fying to know that the Presi
dent's Message is perfectly satis
factory to the London Press. I
The people of Indiana and New
Hampshire arc agitating the
question of calling conventions
in both of these states to revise
their existing constitutions. The'
old New Hampshire constitution
is so far behind the age as to re
quire a religious qualification for
office. The provision is not negative.-
I does not eay that a
citizen of a particular religious
faith shall be incompetent to hold
office, but requires that he must
have some special religious be
lief. The Indiana ; constitution
forbids negroes or mulattoes to
enter the State, and prescribes a
punishment for any one who
employs such persons or gives
them any inducement to remain
in the State. Both of these pro-
scriptive constitutional provis
ions are dead letters, but the
good people of JVew Hampshire
and Indiana are ashamed of them
and think it about time that they
were buried among -the relics of
A correspondent of the Chica
go Times is. residing at Tahlequs
the capital of the Cherokee na
tion, during the session of the
Indian Legislature. He is high
pleased with, the general conduct
of the Legislators and makes
comparisons between ;them and
our own not at all to our advant
age. He says there is no ruffian
ism, debauchery or intoxication
among the membora of the as
sembly. They go to their capi
tal on business for thepublic.and
do it in a quiet way, and return
as soon as possible to their own
business ,of farmintxet&efe
raising. If they have not all the
beauties they have" few. of the
vices of the civilization that is
forcing itself upon them.
Mr. Grant's Attorney-General,
Williams, says the reason why
the President "recognized" the
bogus Legislature in Louisiana,
was that "he believed the Re
publican ticket had received a
majority of the votes." There is
no pretense that thejreturns war
ranted any such conclusion. On
the contrary it ia well' known
that the Liberal ticket was fclect'
ed by at least ten thousand ma
iority. But this was all set aside
by the "belief" of the President
Hereafter the formality of an elec
tion and the counting of votes
will not be necessary. The Presi
dent only needs to "recognize.''
Two colored children were re
cently admitted into one of the
rural schools of Hamilton coun
ty. The school was composed of
thirty-five white children, all of
wham withdrew, except four, af
ter the colored children entered.
Notwithstanding ; the deser
tion, the teacher continues the
school with bis half-dozen schol
ars. The whites declare . that
they will never send their chil
dren while the colored ones re
The 'Tribune' is safe. Mr. Or
ton has sold fifty shares of his
Tribune Btock to Whitelaw Reid,
retaining one share for himself,
and stipulating that he shall be
honored with a place in the Board
of Trustees. This will leave the
paper- under the management of
Mr. Reid. ' Proclamation is made
to the effect that the paper will
continue in the Liberal ranks.--A
sigh of relief will sweep over
tho country, now that the Tri
bune's tribulations are so satis
The New York Express says
that Hon. James Brooks will in
sist upon a epecial investigation
of the charges" by ilcCob, that
he is interested in the Credit Mo
bilier stock, and will request that
the committee be composed of
his politisal opponents.
Bakntjm has been burned out
again. His Hippodrome and
Museum has fallen a victim to
the devouring element in New
York. The loss is stated to be
$300,000 and very little insurance.
Nearly all tho animals perished
in the flames.
Secretary Boutwell aroused
much indignation among the
claim agents by orders prohibi
ting fees from being deducted
from claims when paid.
Secretary Boutwell will posis
tively leave the Cabinet in March,
and will run for the Senate in
place of Henry Wilson.
In its prospectus for 1873 the
Chicago Tribune saye:
The. Chicago Tribune support
ed, in the recent erection, the
platform and nominees of the
.Liberal Republican convention,
which met at Cincinnati on the
1st. of May. The defeat of the
candidates of that convention has
not diminished in any degree,
the necessity for carrying for
ward its ;.rineiples. We hold
these principles to be essential to
good government, to the prosper
ity oi the country, and even to
the permanence of republican in
stitutions. We shall therefore
continue to give them our hearty
support and advocacy, and shall
sustain the men who litly repre
sent them, whatever party desig
nation they may wear. We shall
give an impartiul hearing to the
administration of Gen. Grant,
and shall support it in all acts
which seem o us wise and useful
iu the country, as cordially ap
though it were an administration
of our own choice
On Christmas day, Ed. Spang
and John Cathcart, two Dayton
ians, "were fatally shot at the
Phillips House bar-room, by ofte
Foster, keeper of a Keno Bank,
in that city. The shootest gave
himself up immediately after
committing the deed. It is tt
case of eelf defense, of c lurse.
Tho death of the State Govern
ment of Louisiana shows Ohio
that she too is mortal. Ail that
such men as Mr. Grant want, is
au excuse and opportunity, and
they will do the same work for
ns, and the "loil" papers will say
its all right !

lower House of congress. The
Assessors and their assistants are
to go out of office July 1, 1873,
and sooner if the Commissioner
thinks fit. . The bill repeals so
much of the law of last session as
required the consolidation of the

There is no "muddle" really in
Louisiana. The facts aro these:
1, The people elected the Dem
ocratic and Liberal ticket by 12,
2, The legal State Canvassers
were not allowed to declare the
result, being prohibited by an in
junction from a United States
3. A board of men who were
not legal Canvassers threw out
number of parishes or counties-
just enough to give the Grant
party the ascendency.

the minority of the people and

in the contest. ..That is all there
