A novel w.,y of stopping the annoyances
of the Tax Collector's visits h i been in
augurated in St Clair c-t unty. The tax
payers havo robbed the Collector of his
tax books, and have probably destroyed
them. It is a cot.p tk vi'tin which lor the
time being is no doubt successful. Ii y a
(ingle act they have disarmed the Collec
tor ot his warrants fur their molestation
and wiped out the evidences of assess
ments against them. at least for the
present. That they have completely
Huded the ultimate payment ot their taxes
is doubtful. It may require an act of the.
Legislature lor a new levy to enable the
Collector to proceed, but sooner or later,
ho will be armed with the. requisite au
thority, ant the burdens from which the
tax payers of the county have been tem
porarily relieved will bo again imposed,
with increased weight.
There is serious trouble on the Texan
border. That it will dcvelope into a war
with Mexico is the fear of some and the
hope ol ninny. War is at all times to be
deprecated, and should ever be the last re
sort of nations or peoples for the correc
tion ol wrongs or the settlement ol -differences.
What the United States have to
gain by the conquest ol Mexico that would
' in any measure compensate lor the expense
oi the undertaking, is not perceivable to
the common understanding. The expense,
in life and treasure, of taking care of the
Indian country we hxve already, is suffi
cient without adding to it that ot the mon
grel Mexican. The people ol these states
are by no means ready for an addition to
the burdens they now have to bcar.that ot
the debt of another wnr. Besides the de
moralizing effect ol a condition of war
they can now i!l afford to invite. But
what is a more pertinent objection, the
troubles aoout which complaints arise are
doubtless to a great extent the fault ol
The war like atmosphere ol Europe
nppears to be lilting. The bristling of
WcMahou toward the great mass of his
subjects, which seemed to denote their
humiliation or the horrors ot civil war, is
changed, and he addresses the Chamber
of Deputies a message full of conciliation
and the spirit of concession.
But more important is a circular from
the Turkish Porte, addressed to the Gre-t
- Powers ot Europe begging for intermedi
ation and peace, through intervention
against the aggiessions ol Russia. The
:; '-circular note commences by a statement
that the origin of the present important
events is perfectly known. The imperial
; government is conscious of having done
nothing to provoke war. It has done
everything to avert it, and has vainly
Bought to discover Russia's motives in her
aggressive campaign. 'Ihe Porte has
-shown a desire tor improvement by reor
' ganizing the judicial system and devising
relorms without distinction ot race or re
ligion, " according to the constitution,
which has been everywhere well received.
1 Partial reform is ol no avail. The adop
? . tion ot improvements in one part of the
- Empire would be an excuse to revolt in
another. Denials as to the execution of
' these reforms should disappear belore the
. solemn declarations the Porte now
' makes. A state of war simply retards
l such relorms, and is disastrous to the
: country generally, destroying tho agri
cultural interests, killing industry and
f ruining reorganization. Independently
I of these arrangements for relorni, what
reason can there be for continuing the
war P Russia has declared that she is not
animated by the spirit ol conquest. The
jniilitary honor of both sides must be
.iftbucdantly satisfied. What object can
there bo' in prolonging a contest ruinous
to'both countries P The moment has ar
jrived for the belligerent powers to accept
peace without affecting their dignity.

A controversy has sprung up between
one Win. Matthews, of St. Louis, and
Lewis B. Bea :h, the prosecuting attorney
ol the city, of the merits of wider we will
not spe:ik. But the lust shot ot Mr.
Beach contains some general truths that
will bear repetition as having a fconernl
Mr. Matthews, whose indictment is the
subject ol discussion, seems to bo ol tho
impression that the indictment 'was
brought for the purpose ol extorting
money." To this Mr. Beach replies in terms
t'i which wo make reference, lie says:
This is simply a reiteration of what
eveiy man ol means, influence and posi
tion cries out, when he by his treachery or
by some technicjlity of law (winch some
aide and well teed lawyer is able to pick
out) manages Ii escape from the punish
ment which lie so justly deserves. I
regret exceedingly to be compelled to
admit, thai m t!v;se times it is almost uu
impossibility to ecure the conviction of
men ol wealth and influence; but, on the
other hand, how easy it is to conyict the
poor, the friendless, the unfortunate.
How true it is that the law is only able to
catch the little fish. Unless justice is to
be meted out to all alike, without dis
tinction as to position, nationality, race,
poverty or wealth, let us abrogate out
laws, do away with our jury system and
close our temples ot justice, writing on
the doors thereol. The administration
ol the law is a farce and a fraud, and
only intended to protect the rich and
crush the poor." But. sir, when I as
sumed the duties ot my position, I firmly
resolved that 1 would, to the best of my
ability, faithfully prosecute the guilty
whether they were rich or poor, high or
low, influential or powerful, or humble
and this 1 prepese to continue to do. your
opinion to the contrary notwithstanding.
And allow me right here to say that I
wish tho good opiuion ol the honest part
ol this community only; the good opinion
ot those who by their own acts are
brought before the criminal law, and
whom I am compelled by reason of my
official position, and the faithful discharge
of my duty to prosecute. I do not expect
nor want. I deem you one of that class
of persons that would crucify a man for
the honest discharge ot a sworn duty.

j THE TREASURY GIRL.
A S.u Tale ok Confidence', Run.-.De
8EHTION AND DliATlf.
? As sad a story a wi ever told is fur
nislwd the Detroit News by , its Washing
ton correspondent. It is as follows:
Ported conspieuou-lv "all along the cor
lidors ol the (nt-arior Department is the
following notice: .. .
There are no vacancies in this depart
nient. Applicants cannot bo seen. Ap
plications in writing will bo received and
placed on file for future examination.'
I called the attention ol the venerable
clerk, who was showing imh around and
giving mo lesso .8 iu civil service reform,
to 'hi notice anil rem irked :
I suppose this is Hnothor device got up
to deceive the p ople P'
'Yes, it serves the purpose of deceiving
applicants to a liiiiitnd extent; but it was
originally got up for tho benefit ot one
person alone. The history of that notice
is somewhat romantic, and would be a
gond subject lor a 'yallar kirer '
I urged him to give me the Morv. which
he did in nearly the following language:
, 'S'liiin years air.) there was a young
clerk occupying a desk near the entrance
to the building. He was rather reckless
in his character, loud ot a joke, and loved
an adventure better than he loved wine,
which is saying a good deal. One day a
youn: girl,' well dressed, and aged about
16. entered ids room and asked it he was
the Secretary oi the Interior. He saw at
a glance that she was a simplo-minded
country girl, and wondering what she
cou d want with the Secretary, determin
ed to find out all about it, and promptly
replied in the. affirmative. She there
UDon told him that she had recently been
left an orphan and among strangers; that
her lather's estate, which was considera
ble belore the war, had boen swept away,
and that she was penniless and obliged lo
support h'.'iseli. She had a good educa
tion and wrote a lair hand, and hearing
that situations in the department were
'frequently fiiled by ladies she had deter
mined to apply tor one herselt.
The citik ascertained that she had no
backing, but that in her simplicity ot
mind had come here thinking that no
such thing was necessary. He therefore
decided upon a line ol action, infamous
in design and disastrous in ils consequen
ces. Still carrying the idea that hu was
the Secretary, he ascertained her stepping
place, and agreed to consider her applH
cation and call that evening ta inform her
of the result. He also cautoned heron
some specious pretext, against talking
with others on the subject of her business.
He called at the time appointed, and,
telling her that there wore no vacancies
at present, advised her to take lodgings
snmewhere and wait, promising her the
first place when a vacancy occurred. She
took his advice, and the result can be
easily imagined. It was the old, old
story. Ot course she never got the situa
tion promised, but was put off from day
t day and month t month on various
pretexts, until finally, by a change ol ad
ministration, he lost his own situation.
"Uverwhelnaed by the loss ot bis posi
tion aad the consciousness of the infamy
ot his conduct toward the poor girl, he
shrank from tolling her the truth ; and
fearing the consequences it his guilt
should -become known, he resolved to con
ceal his crime by still farther deception.
To this end be wrote her a note, telling
her that he had suddenly been called to
Europe on important business conuected
with his department, but that he had lelt
orders to have a place given her as soon
as a vacancy occuried ; that in the mean
time she eouiil always tell whether a sit
utation was open to her by looking at the
notice pasted on tho walls in the'depart
ment.That night' he got several copies of
the above notices printed and surreptitoui
ly posted them up.
Filled with grief at his sudden depart
ure, and filled with a foreboding ot im
pending evil, she wended her way to the
department, on her first visit of reconuois
sance. She saw the notices, and, overcome
with despondency, she for the first time,
ventured to difobey the instructions she
had received. Entering the office where
she first met her deceiver, months before,
she inquired for the Secretary of the In
terior. She was shown to his room and
there the whole secret came out. The
scene in that office when the kind-hearted
Secretary revealed the truth can never be
described. Suffice it to say she was con
ducted from that room utterly broken in
mind and health. The Secretary provided
for her immediate necessities, and called
the attention ot some charitable ladies to
her case. For weeks she lay hovering on
the blink ot the grave with a brain ie'ver,
and when she arose her mind was gone
and her hair was gray. Ilor betrayer was
traced out and forced o contribute to ber
support, but for the sake of bis family the
whole matter was kept Irom publicity.
When she was able to go about an at
tempt was made to change her abode and
surroundings, but she resisted the attempt

Here the old man blew his nose, bade
me good-by, and was about turning away,
when I detained him with:
"One moment before you go what be

"She' laded ftway that is all. ; iller

told this story belore, and you are wel
come to it. You are a literary man, and
by adding ft little to it you could make

But I am not ambitiou in that line, and
prefer to give tho plain story in the simple
language used by the departmental relic.
AMONG THE MOONSHINERS.
And again we hear Irom tho moonshin
er in his h le. This time it was John
Wyatt, special United States bailiff, who
met the enemy, but could effect no cap-s
turo Wyatt was employed, with others,'
by deputy United States Marshal Thomp
son to assist him in his work in Bath and
other counties, and up to last Monday the
party had arrested three moonshiners.
There were warrants in hand against
Levi Patrick, a magistrate ot Magoffin
county, William Patrick, Moses Berget
and Dunlnp Dikes, charging them w-iih
illicit distilling in Magoffin county. Mon
day last Wyatt, Special Bailiff Joe' West
bay and John White Power and James
Preston Power, two assistants, started to
execute the warrants. They left Salycrs
ville, the county seat of Magoffin, and
aimed to reach Fighting' Fork, on the
Licking, a creek about ten miles Irom
Salyersville, up in a mountainous coun
try. lhey were adnioimhed by people along
the creek not to go, as there was an
armed band on the mountains readv to
do mischief. The partv Daid no heed to
these admonitions, but continued on their
journey. When about a half mile or
more from the mountains. Wvatt savs
they mot Dr. Lee, a resident ot the coun
ty, who told them not to go any farther,
that it was a dangerous undertaking, as
some forty or filty men from Breathitt
and Magoffin counties, all armed, would
get away wih them. They were about to
continue, anyhow, when Lee, who had
started off, turned 'back to them, and he
and Wyatt went to the mountains, while
the other three remained behind, Wvatt
leaving his gun with them.
When at the foot ot the mountain they
saw the men od top, and Wyatt shouted
to them : 'Lay down your guns and come
down here ; I want to talk to you.' Levi
Patrick, in response, came down unarm
ed, and he and the officer had a talk.
Wyatt said to him: 'I've got a warrant
against you, but I reckon 1 can't serve it
on you with that crowd to back you.'
Patrick, Wyatt says, answered rather
sensibly. He stated that he and others
had been bedeviled to such au extent by
some officers of the government, work
ing merely to get paltry fees, that they
had gotten tired of it. They had com
mitted no violation of law. and didn't
inteud therefore to be arrested. Wyatt
told him he might as well be arrested
now, as he would surelv be caught some
other time. This, ain't my fight,' he
said, 'but I want to execute the law.
You'll have to go to the penitentiary, it
you don't mind.'
Seeing there was no use of attempting
an arrest, wyatt ana L.ee went on top ot
the mountain with Patrick.
Tke former relates that ho counted
twenty men himselt, while others were
Sonne . of them didn't seem to like his
coming there at first, and one man asked
him where his gun was. 'Oh, I felt that
behind,' he replied. Wall,' said the
moonshiner, 'I calkerlated to swing that
ere gun across my back alore Jong.'
'inn had better watch out that you don't
get the contents of it some ot these davs,1
was wyatt s recti less answer.
The gang cooked a dinner for Wyatt
and Lee, and they remained about two
hours and a halt before taking their de
parture. Returning to the three men
remaining behind, the party all went
oacK to aaryersvillo. The moonshine
party all knew Wvatt. and doubtless
admired his bravery iu coming amongst
inem as ho did. lie stated to a Courier
Journal reporter that it was one ot the
few times he had to 'take water.' From

WASHINGTON'S IDEAS OF THE CIVIL
SERVICE. . T
When Washington was called to the
presidency in 178!) there were no regular
ly organized parties, and there was no
room for patronage in a partisan sense,
and nothing could exceed the justice ot
the rules by which he was guided. Called
to the executive chair even against his
wishes, ho said be would go to it under
no pre-engagement of any kind or nature
whatever, but would hold himself abso
lutely at liberty to act whilo in office with
sole reference to justice and the public
good. So much depended on wisdom and
impartiality in this matter that, in case of
injudicious or 'unpopular measures with
regard to appointments, the government
itself would bo in tho utmost danger of
being utterly subverted. 'My political
conduct,' ho said, in making nomina
tions must bo exceedingly circumspect,'
Again i '1 do not intend to be swayed ia
the disposal ot places by motives arising
from the ties of friendship and blood?
All this time it is not to be supposed there
was nobody to present his 'claims.' Even
before his first inauguration, Washington
was - greatly annoyed by applications for
appoistments, and invariably represented
to such persons the delicacy of his situa
tion, and the impropriety of bringing
such matters before him. Ho apprehend"
ed what afterward proved true: that there
would be a hundred competitors for every
office ot any importance ; but for a long
time he would give no decisive answer to
the applications of any candidates what
ever, and would only aominato such per-
euuo ua in ms juagnient were best quali
fied to discharge the duties of the depart
ments to which they were appointed. As . ":.' '
between an intimate friend and a deter- '
mined opponent, he gave a lucrative .
office, which both had applied tor, to the -1 -1
latter, with the following explanation: ' ' :
