Chairman of the Banking and Currency
committee, f,Hya among other things, it, is
the intentii 11 of his committee to urge the
repeal of the law permitting the secretary
of the treasury to allow large sums of money
to accumulate, in uutinual bank. The fact
that this bus lieen done, and is still being
done to a Kiirpris-ing and shameful extent,
as i.s urged by some, has been recently
made known, and is deemed at once an un
just ami unnecessary action, and an ex
travanant favor to the banks on the part of
tho government. It is shown by the of
ficial records that the First National bank
of New York hud at one time over $45,000,

its vaults. The Natio tal bank of Commerce
ot New York is also known to have had

A MOC.CB CLAIM.
The sccrctat of the interior calls the at

likely to consume a great deal of time before
it is disposed of.

THE ROD IN OUR SCHOOLS AND
11V MKSSCHKN FRKI NI)
Shall llm rod be used as an iiwtrum 'lit of
government? No! for it might become the
means of making tho lurg -r hoy treat the
smaller and weaker ones with more for
bearance. I mako this Assertion deliber
ately, for I know wh ;rj:f I urn speaking,
having been a witness once of n circum
stance that clearly illustrates my position.
The directors of a certain school district
had prohibited tho u. of tho rod in tho
schools. One day as the children were out
on the playground, one of the larger Ikivs
a kind of bully among them, slapped a
little boy over. The little fellow cried bit
terly, and said he would tell the teacher on
him. the large boy sahl, "I don't care a
d n if you do. Tho teacher dares not
whip me, for I heard the directors say so."
Would it not be wrong; in fact, I may say
cruel, t'l deprive tlitt large boy nnd others
like him, by the judicious use of tho rod,
of the inestimable liberty of venting their
spleen and heaping their abuse on smaller
and weaker boys? Would you stifio that
noble instinct of independence which would
trample all law and order under foot, by
coiwcrating its noblo casket to a few keen
cuts of the birch? If so, where will you get
bullies to nianago your future elections?
No! Tho idea is simply revolting; tho rod
must be banished, and only remembered as
a relic of ancient barbarism.
I will here remark, stnmge as it may
seem, the aliove mentioned sehixil directors
have fallen back into the old rut; the order
prohibiting tho use of tho rod in the
school has been rescinded; and, now, on the
play ground of that school, the bully is as
meek and mild as a lamb.
In this a;e of progress physical force
along with the rod must not bo resorted to
in the maintainence of peace and order and
in dealing out justice anil equity. Moral
suasion must do the work. This is the
great Panacea of tho afternoon half of this
Nineteenth Century for every known and
unknown evil on the fuco of tho earth; yet
we may ransack tho history of every nation
from remotest antiquity to tho present age,
and not find a solitary instaneo where a gov
ernment was run on moral suasion alone, in
fact the bst governments always bucked up
moral suasion by ample force, just as ours
We aro a progressive people, we must
simplify matters, and pray what is simpler
than moral suasion alono and unmixed? I
read in the newspapers that in one of tho
states they have returned to tho barbarous
and monstrous practice of the "whipping
post." Hero in our state, things work
somewhat differently; wo are up with the
times and progsess of the age in which we
live. When a brother man gets too lazy
and trifling to gain an honest living by
work, especially in winter, ho steals a few
dollars' worth; ho is then taken and con
fined, sheltered and fed till spring, the gen
erous taxpayers footing the bill; taxes be
ing so extremely low that they are glad to
contributo from their great abundance, to
the support of vagabond loafers.
I repeat it. Moral suasion is tho great
panacea. The builders of this grand and
glorious government employed tho best tal
ent and genius of tho country for fifteen or
twenty years in tho moral suasion business,
with Great Britain, for tho purposo of ol.
taining justico from that avaricious nation,
and did they obtain it? Ye, after eight
more years of moral suasion, backed up by
vigorous powder, lead, steel ami unconquer
able) will. Tho most, if not all of that band
of patriots and distinguished men, during
their Journey from childhood to manhood,
passed unjlor tho rod, but that was in tho
eighteenth century ; this is the nineteenth

W.tHinx.rrnx, Dec. 15th, 1878.
Of course. 11! I the talk here, at present, is
alxmt Mr. Blaine's great speech. The senate
( hatiiber, from floor to eeiling, was crowd
ed as it never had been before, to hear him.
Tho speech had lieen anticipated and the
subject of conversation among politicians,
and every man and woman in Washington
Is a politician, for days before. For the
moment, Grant presidential stock is quoted
at a discount, and Senator Blaino appear
to have all the vantage that he held lieforn
the Cincinnati convention. His speech wn
prepared with great cure, and he. did not
trust himself to extemporaneous delivery,
as ho had been his custom in the house,
where he accomplished as much by his sd
ctptiindum style of sj euking, us he did by
the force nf argument. The styles. tf oratiiy
in the house nnd senate are very different,
and it is evident that Mr. Blaine has profil
ed by criticism of the rampant elocution
that had proved so effective
in toe house, but that is totally powerless
to move the dignified heavy-weights of the
senate. Senators Thunnan and Luuiar
made brief impromptu replies to Mr.
Blaine, and each signified his intention to
reply at greater length during the course of
the debute. The political friends of Mr.
Blaine insist that it will bs impossible to
confute his facts and arguments, while the
friends of Thurman and Lamar 1 lieve that
he hits been already conclusively answered,
and since tho result has been ouly to con
firm both Republicans and Democrats in
their previous convictions, it is very diiliciilt
for those; w ho effect an aerial judicial posi
tion, locum in arsorc, to see what has been
accomplished by all this sensational oratory
further than to bring Mr. Blaine and Mr.
Thiirimm into more conspicuous leadership,
and promote their candidacy for the presi
ding of tho United States in 188(1.
Next to Mr. B'.ainc's oratory, the sensa
tion in political circles has been the pros
pective retirement from the cabinet of Attorney-General
J)evens, and now it is rcjKir'
ed that Senator Matthews of Ohio will lie
his successor. The term of Mr. Matthew
will expire on the 4th of March, and Hon.
George Pendleton will nucceed him. Mr.
Matthews is said to be namorcd of politi
cal life, and very loth to leave Washington. 1
The president, it is believed, will give him
tho vacancy that will be made by the retire
ment of Devens. His nomination will meet
with opposition in tho senate, but not suf
ficient, it is said, to prevent his confirma
tion. Siace I last wrote, the house has Mccriin
plished more solid work in the passage of
the consular and fortification bills, and the
new army bill, framed by a joint aommittcf
of tho houso and senate, will soon come up
for consideration; but since it contemplates
a great reduction of the number of officers,
and radical changes of organization, it will
meet with stubborn resistance in both
houses. The bill does not affect the Gen
eral and Lieutenant General of the army,
but by tho present law those offices will ex
pire with Generals Sherman and Sheridan.
The infantry regimen's are to be reduced
from twenty five to eighteen; the cavalry,
from ten to eight. It is provided tint each
regiment shall consist of four battalions.
Two battalions of each infantry nnd artil
lery regiment are to bo kept officered and
maimed in full; the third will have its full
eomplimeiitof ollicers, but not of men, while
the fourth will have neither officers or men
in time of peace, but may bo brought into
existence as congress may order. This w ill
mako the regiments consist of two full bat
talions, with nllicers for a third battalion,
while the men for the third, and both offi
cers and men for the fourth, exist ss skele
ton battalions, to be filled up only for the
occasion of wnr. The regiment
in tinu of p.iaee will hnv.i about ?3
men, each battalion consisting of four com
panies or batteries. The army will remain
as now at 25,000 men, but tho bill provides
for only two major-generals and only tour
brigadiers. It consolidates the adjutant
and inspector general's departments, and
makes a reduction of six ollicers in the
two. The bureau of military justice is re
duced six officers; tho ordnance depart
ment 10; the pay department 27; medical
department 1 1 ; commissionary department
17; quartermaster's department 48. The
engineer corpse nnd signal service remnin
ss they ore. Post chaplains are reduced to
eight, ainl they must be recommended by
tho church of their denomination. The per
manent stuff will not contain any officer
below tho rank of major, all officers for
staff duty of lower rank must be detailed
from tho line, and no officer shall be eligl
blu to detail for stuff dutv until he shall
have served six years, and then his detail
shall not bo larger tliun for three years.
Tho bill reduces the number nf ollicers
334, of whom 13(1 are regimental officers
and it resals the section of tho Revised
Statutes which forbids tho appointment of
any ono who served In the confederate
