It is oho of tlio slgnillcnnt indications of
llio jierloil tli.it Sammy Tii.nnv's absence
from tlio Democratic ighth of January
ilinncr dirt not overwhelm the Democratic
press with grief. And Tit.nns', in ilii.tiici.il

and cpec-ially in tlie matter of personal in

llAYAno'ri I're-sldentinl piogrammc for
iet?0 is bawl upon tlio assumption Hint tlio
Democracy can av in only on a hard money
and Bourbon straight platform. He pro
poses to ignore tlio soft money clement of
his party altogether, abandon nil effort to
carry Indiana and Ohio, and rely on tlio
Solid Soutli, with its 139 electoral votes, nnd
New Yotk, Connecticut, and Now Jersey
fifty more making a total of 188 otos, to
elect him. Beautiful thoncht!
O'Coxxon, known to fame as tlio leading
Democrat of the Ohio Legislature, nnlved
in Columbus in advance of tlio opening of
tlio session and of his partisan associates.
Owing to picking engagements elsewhere,
plcni-pcniti-ntlnry, ns it vveie, ho will not
take a very nctive part iu tlio proceedings
of that body this winter. He is n Tll.nnx
man with all the term implies. His
itriped garments arc occult ciphers that,
when translated, denote this fact.
Ir has over been known that General Bi:x
llUTLUlt's impudence Is only equalled by
his rampant ambition ; but he is eclipsing
himself now. That is to say, ho is out-Rut-lering
liUTLL'lt. It is announced that lie is
arranging an orgnnration of tlio Demo
cratic party which shall bo devoted to tlio
highest principle in favor of human rights.
When he succeeds in tiris effort tlio millen

Tin: Pittsburg JM has elevated Itself
upon tho highest altitude of its elongated
Democratic auricular organ. Prom that
(midline height it admonishes President
Mayes in the following stylo:
If llAVrs undertakes to nnticipito a Demo
cratic Senate by tending In nominations to the
present one of oQichils whoso commissions do
not expire for two year, ho will 11ml himself
confronted with an extra session, or suspended
impropriation bills. Tlio Democracy of the
country has submitted to this kind ofiioiiscnso
for tlio last time. They will have tho fi nils of
tliclr vlctoiy or down goes tho house.
The Opposition press is 1'aiily gloating
over a manufactured chaigo that President
Mayes and Attoruey-Gencial Dmixs wcic
guilty in the p irdou of lV.v.x II. IIayvvai:i,
comicted under tho obscene publication act,
of condoning a vicious offense and abusing
tlio pardoning power for tho beuelU of a dis
rcputnblu criminal. A paragraph in our
nowB columns this .morning exposes tho
groundless character of this charge, and
ehows at the same tlino thatiu tliisinstanco
tho mercy of tho Executive was simply ex
ercised to avert u vtoic calamity than tho
law or justice would impose upona piisoner
really guilty of tho offense of which Hay
wakd stood convicted.
TllEltKnre in piospect two vacancies on
the bench of tho United States courts that
occasioned by tho retiiemcnt of .Supremo
Court Justice WaiidIIlnt, and that by the
resignation of Judge Ouk, of the Supreme
Court of the District of Columbia. The
conundrum that now most peiplexes tho
pcopio is whether or not both of these
places will bo tilled fiom tho Stato of Ohio.
It is rumored that Senator Stanldy Mat
tiihwh is sttongly pointing for Justico
HuNT'ri place, and tli.it another Cincinnati
applicant is within tho possibilities for that
oi.ulo vacant by tho resignation of Judgo
Oi.in. It would not ho unpleasant to the
people of the Union at largo if tho Presi
dent could lift his vision from tho Slato of
Ohio whin thcio is an ofllcu'lo bo filled and
a candidate to bo found. Wo admire his
lovo for his fitnfe, but it should not bo so
strong as to becloud every othei piospect
and intficstin tliocoiiutiy.

who is at all conversant with the social sit

Is there anything strange in this? Tho

that of human slavery in n free country to

again, that pcopio who rebel against ft Clov-1

The defeat of the William and Mary re
lief bill was u step lu tho right direction,
However much force tlicro may be in tho
argument that the Government should cn
courago and cherish In every possible way
tho legitimate educational interests and in
stitutions of the country there is ccry rea
son why It should not foster n. collcgo
wheieln llio tight of secession is taught as
a cardinal priuciplo of governmental otgnu
Ism. When theo Southern tinlvetsltlcs
begin (o tench that treason is odious and
that the Government nnd the llag are
worthy of patriotic icpcct It will bo llmo
enough for tlicnt lo ask lor aid. Iu this in
sl.'inco tho demand was especially cheeky,
if such a phrase is permissible, for William
and Mary, having taught secession for gen
erations, funiMicd to the Confederacy many
of Its ablest leaders, and, having suffered
paitial demolition as au incident of this re
bellious teaching, now comes forward to
impudently demand public aid iu leucwlug

Tun letter of Colonel O. H. Irish, Super
intendent of the lluicau of Engraving and
Printing, to Chairman ATlCIN,of tho House
Appropriations Committee, an abstract of
which is printed elsewhere, will bo lead
with especial interest. While Colonel Iltisif
has been for a long time tho practical execu
tive ofllcer of the linrcnu, this is the llrst
occasion in which ho has been called upon
to make a public statement icgardiug its
nffalis. Wo legrot that " sp ice forbids" the
publication of tho letter in full. It gives a
coniplctestateinentof the reforms instituted
iu the llurcau since May l,1877,at which
time Hon. Enw.VRii McPnt:nsos assumed
tlio duties of chief of thcRurc.iu, and Colonel
Imsil was made nsistnul chief, and is a
manly and sti.il jhtforvv,ird defense of the
administration ot its affairs since thai time.
Ho shows conclusively that the largo ex
penditures of fonner years cannot bo justly
saddled upon the present management, and
tli.U he is abundantly able to defend all his
own nets and the present conduct of affaiis
ngainst the assaults of Mr. Glovci:, who-c
charges aio the result of tho testimony of
worthless and discharged employees, nnd
the icscanh of old accounts as lar hick as
1&!H. We have nothing but praise to offcrof
the affairs of llio Bureau of Engraving nnd
Printing as at prc-ent tonducted, and be
lieve that this niiich-abiiscd Department
was never befoic, siuco its llist inception,
nrgani.cd upon so just and impartial prin
ciples or upon such a practical and thoi
oughly business lnsis.

Wo very naturally regard tho funding of
our national debt at a lower rate of Interest
with n feeling of satisfaction, for in that tho
Government baves money, and so far the
pcopio ate lelicvcil, for they must ulti
mately pay ull this debt. Hut tlicro is an
other hUIo to this question which very scii
ously affects tho business interests of the
country, even to oppressiveness. Tho fund
ing of our debt ut home, instead of nbroad,
wears n patriotic charm. It tells tho world
of our vast resources and Inspires a feeling
of national pride when viewed abstractly.
I!ut when wc consider that question in nil
its iclations and bearings it beclouds the
roseate tints that flush upon it at llrst sight.
The vast amouutof American capital which
is now seeking investment in our per cents
takes just ho muclifioui the marts of manu
factures, trade, and eommcicc, and just so far
ciipplcs theso agencies of tlio prospeilty
and wealth of tho American people. Every
million that linds investment iu these
bonds, which mo carefully laid away be
yond tho i each of tho tax gatherer, with
their yielding coupons, becomes dead to the
husiuus interests of tho country. It dis
appear; from circulation, and is inert to the
active industries of life. This is tho other
hide, which does not dazzle with brightness
It is not po-siblo to transact the business
enteipiises.of the people without capital.
Itcndy money is tho moving power of busi
nesshence without it of necessity it must
languish aud finally die. Tlio want of it
and when it is funded In our bonds it
ceasoa to bo available becomes the mill
stone that hangs upon tho neck of tiade,
commerce, and luaiiufactuic. So far
as our domestic interests aro concerned,
it would be fui belter to have the money
como from and tho interest bo paid to for
eign capitalists, for so loug as incomes aie
untaxed it would bo far more desiiablo to
havo tliclr money tied up, and ouis leftfteo
to foster the general interests of American
cnterpriso nnd industry. Wo are pleased to
bco our debt funded at alovvcr lato of inter
est, for that is a full indorsement of Ameri
can credit; but wo pay dear for this cireiim
stnnco when onrbusiness interests languish
for tlio want of ready capital with which to
push its various entcipiiscs.
One fact is apparent, With resumption
upon us, involving an equalization of tho
valueh of our currency, nnd this constant
drain for investment iu our bonds tho
scarcity of money U more severely felt by
our business Interests than nt any
pievlous period for many yeais,
and unless tho threatened calami
ties aro averted by some propitious
fluniici.il interposition the worst estate of our
people hasuot yet been reached. Itis pecu
liarly uufottunate that tho heavy draft upon
tho inonoy capital of tho country for fund
ing our debt should occur simultaneously
with resumption, for It tends greatly to cir
cumscribe the facilities and encouragements
of general business by withholding from it
tho means which are Indispensable to Its
advancement and prosperity. Tho money
thus invested ceases to bo of the slightest
utility in extinguishing onr indebtedness,
except the difference iu Interest, for not only
tho principal, but tho intcicst is frco from
tnxntiou for that puipose. Wo nro appre
hensive that tho tendencies in favor of tho
privileged classes in our country nro stronger
than is good for oither national or Individ-
thi: AiiJiv mr.i. oncij moiih.
Tho new nrmy bill recntly reported to
Congress by tho joint committee on tho re
organization of tho nrmy, with carefully
prepared explanatory lenvirks by the pics
idout of tho committee, lias been followed
up by tho Iovvs of somo three or four prom
inent generals, to which wido publicity has
been given, apparently with somo intention
of influencing public opinion ou the sub
ject. Wo have heard from three generals
nud ono licutcuant-coloncl In favor of tho
bill, nonoof whom aro injuiiously nfl'eclcd
by It iu the least, ono of whom is materially
benefited by It, nnd all of whom aro given
increased powers and prerogatives. Hut it
is regarded as somewhat singular that we
have not heard from the far larger majority
of generals, colonels, and lieutenant-colonels,
miuy of them officers of well-known
ability nnd national teputntlou, whoso
capacity fororguilralion nnd execution lire
recognized by the country. Tlio fact is
that the nrmy generally, both slalV nnd
line, do not favor tho bill, tho provisions of
which arc legardcd as mischievous nnd
cruel beyond precedent j and public opin
ion, nt first largely Influenced by the views
referred to, Is, upon n nioro mature consid
eration of tho hill, gradually but surely
setting against it.
Aside front the extraordinary and ap
parently unconstitutional provisions of tho
bill, granting almost unlimited personal
powers in somo directions, and curtailing
what have been icgaided tho rightful pic
rogatlvcs of the Executivo in others, all of
which will doubtless bo discovered and ttn
cciemonlouslydealt with at tho hands of the
shrewd and nhlo constitutional lawyers in
both Houses, tho bill contains piovisious
most dangerous to the elleetlvcnu's of the
iu my itself. It proposes to destroy in n
great measure the admirable stall' sstcm of
our nrmy, which has been tho gradual
growth of many years of experience; which
lias withstood tho strain of a great war, ex
panding with its necessities and contracting
with its close; which has been tho admira
tion of Europe-nil military wiiters; which
h.is been characterized by nc.uly every
prominent general of our nrmy in terms of
praise, and which General SlllMtMAN" him
self has at vailous times mentioned most
lu place of trained nnd epciienced
staff olflcers, alieady selected from the
line on account of fitness, and im
proved by long j cars of study and
practice, most of them under heavy bonds,
it is proposed to substitute ofliccrs of the
line by detail, who, after a brief experience
of two years may, ns vacancies occur, be
placed iu the pctninneut staff. Thus wo nro
replacing experience by luexpciicncc, and
trained and known ability by untiled per
sons. Docs this seem like n beneficial re
organization? It ull appears to us like a
hue nnd ciy In the intcicst of a few intei
cstcd aud designing persons to benefit them
selves, even at the cost of disorganization,
nnd to this end havo nssiilcd the staff with
a clamor nbout antagonism that exists no
where but lu their own imagination. Tlio
fact is, there is no antagonism between the
line and staff. Somo few men, Ambitious
for preferment which they Hud themselves
unable to gain in their own dcpailmcnts,
want other branches thrown open to them,
nud somo fovv othcis who have been unsuc
cessful applicants for stall" positions havo
become embittered and nssiil the very de
partments they sought service in.
To the unlnfoiiucd it would seem from
the bill that the general ofllcets do not now
command tho officers of tho stall in their
vaiious commands, and that lino officers nro
never detailed to duty in tlio staff. Nothing
could bo more cirnncous, for the legal con
tiol of n general over all llio officers within
tlie limits of his comm mil is clear and ab
solute, subject only to tho nppiovnl of his
rightlnl superiors; and it is well known
that the details of lino officers lo stall' duty

of money by executing nearly nil the work of

havo but to again call tho attention of your
eoniinltteo lo tho fact that thero was est!
tinted and appropriated for labor and exponso
of engraving and printing for tho fiscal yoar
1878 tho sum or .a0l).00i). There was ex
pended of this uppioprlution tho sum of $117,

dining tho s.uno year there was estimated nnd
uppiopilntod tho sum of ?iri0,b00. Tlicro wns
expended tho sum of $i:iO,bJ7.!KI. To tho sums
thus s.vvod must hu nth led tho sum of $70,000,
tlio amount of tho reduction made lu tho cost

of J7I2.00S.84. With this amount of inonoy In
the Ticisuiy unexpended i ueg to nsic, ii
theio Is any loss Incurred In connection with
this llurcau, wheru Is Itr
It bus been i barged that under previous nil-
mluUtiatlonsot'tho llureui it was tlie practice
to iisu its ti.itrouagu iu sue.u n way as to
strengthen Its demands upon Congress for ap
propriations, in order to secure as laiuu an
amount of monej each year a possible, and
that It resulted in seeming larger sums than
thu sorvico really remilred, tho employment
of useless and unqualified persons, and tho
purchaso of larger amounts nl material than
woio needed fur tlio legulur operations of tlio
llurcau. Tho lingo amount ot money which
lein.ilns unexpended uu account of Its appro
priations for 1877-73 Is a guarantee that tho
nresont iniiiaiceincnt of thu lluioiu has not
been actuated by nny such deilrc, uud must
satisfy any candid mind of tho fact Hut In tho
