While President Arthur was collector
of customs at New Yoik the cashier in
his office became a defaulter for $5,000,
and for this sum the President is still held
responsible on the books of the treasury
department. A bill is to be introduced
iu Congress at an early day for his relief.
It has provoked considerable unfavorable
comment but it is believed it will pass.
Mrs Langtry is said to have made herself
so disagreeable to the members of her
dramatic company that several of them
have abandoned their engagement and
gone back to England. The receipts for
her season of four weeks were over $61,800,
which is the largest business ever done by
a star in America, something very remarkable
when its universally conceded that
she is no actress at all.
Says the Cincinnati News: As President
Arthur is entering upon a career of
reform, rather tardily begun and coming
suspiciously after the election, it is a rather
curious reflection that the new reformer
was not a great while ago himself the subject,
or a Stalwart might say the victim,
of Mr. Haves' reform mood. What more
need be said of a reformer than that Mr.
Hayes regarded him an improper person
to hold office under his administration.
Not that we do not wish him well in reform.
We bid him godspeed : but still
we are incredulous.
The Wretched, Beggarly Tramp.
The following lines were written some
two years ago, by John N. Welson, of Carthage,
Mo., who penciled them shortly
signing the pledge. He, though" belonging
to one of the best families in ihe
place, had become terribly dissipated, but
was converted and is now a worthy member
of the Presbyterian church :
Tramp, tramp, tramp, onward you cro,
In summer, In wlntei, In iniul. In snow,

Tempting the buzzard, the wolf, and the crow.
Wretched, boggiirly tramp.
Was he not pure as an Innocent child,
Pure as an angel, hnnnless and mild,
Thinking no evil 'till drink had beguiled
The Innocent hoy into pleasure (so styled)
And made him a destitute tramp?
Can you not save him and make him a man?
Can you not lift irom his soul the dread ban ?
Yes, good people, you certainly can ;
Look lu the gutter and reach out your hand
To help your own brother the tramp,
Give him a homo lit by charity's lamp ;
(Jive him a bed not dirty and damp,
Ease him of hunger's consuming cramp;
Give him a tent In t)ie temperancp camp ;

If you were like him, would have him todo.

From our regular correspondent.
Washington, Dec. 2, 1832.
Great expectations in the Garfield fair
are doomed to disappointment. The fair
itself is a second rate affair. A few good
pictures in the rotunda of the capital and
some stupid statuary. A bust by Vinnie
Ream which makes Garfield's somewhat
sinister face look worse even than his photographs.
A number of garish booths in
the old hall of representatives in which
are sold candies, perfumery, pen
handles, envelopes, bouquets, photographs
etc. In each booth a number of matrons
and maidens who, God, pity them, seem
to have nothing to do at home playing
saleswomen. This is a coup d1 oeil of the
fair as it appeared to your correspondent
when he went there and bought a Garfield
poem of the professional beauty,
Miss Gipsie Gilbert, whoso portrait was
.displayed in a recent number of the
Graphic as a type of American beauty
I was walking around the booths musing
on the vanity of vanity and trying to
find an item, wlien I heard a mellifluous
voice say : " Cannot I sell you a Garfield
poem, oh! do buy one, only thirty-five
cents. Looking in the direction of the
voice I saw a somewhat dazzling woman,
fine dark eyes, red cheeky cheeks and
teeth as white as a dog's. I bought the
doggerel on the merits of the saleswoman,
but I would not read it even for her. I
went a little further when Mrs. Sarah J.
Spencer asked me to buy a Garfield medal.
I told her I did not like the man, whereupon
she turned her back to me with an
expression of disgust in that strong Grecian
Four years ago Garfield made a
speech at the commencement of
the Spencer business college, and, after
he was nominated for the presidency, the
Spencers published his speech in'their
catalogue and paraded him for an advertising
boom as the patron saint of the college.
Yes the fair is a failure. The Garfield-legend
does not wear; it excites no enthusiasm.
Men have at last asked themselves
: Whatgreat thing did he do ; what
worthy enduring work did he ncorform :
what noble cause did he lead to fruition
that he should deserve an imperishable
monument? The second choice of the
warring factions of the party which had
subsisted for four years on the spoils of a
stolen presidency arid which Garfield had
helped tosteal,he was elected only by spoils
money disbursed by the bag.
Star Route Senator Ddrsey, for whom the
Half-demagogue, half-pedagogue, Garfield
was great only in the eyes and ears
of that mediocrity in which history will
President Arthur is not a great man, but
he is of larger mould and finer grain than
Garfield. As an orator he knows better
what to say and when to stop than Garfield
knew. As a statesman he has displayed
greater moral courage, as well as
more tact and finesse than Garfield displayed.
It is indeed high time that the American
public wtTe getting over the idiocy
that the measure of a man's greatness is
the amount of gush and drivel he utters in
the legislature, in Congress, on the stump
and to Sunday schools.
A large number of members and senators
are in the city ready for the final session
which will convene on Monday. The demoralization
of the Republicans is as
complete as their enemies could wish. It
is doubtful if they keep ranks, and it is
believed that some of them will desert
their party after the example of the Governor
elect of Massachusetts.

A Michigan adventurer raised $2,000 by
mortgaging a farm which belongod to a
man he happened to resemble closely, and
whom he personated so well that the
money lender was deceived.
During the first three months of the
operation of the exclusion law, 3,840 Chinese
have departed from San Francisco
and only 109 arrived. The arrivals from
both Oliina and Japan last month were
only 73, against 972 in October of last year.
