Sl"clul correspondent ol thu lltiMotuil
Wahminoton, January 2S, IS70.
Complaint, is made, uud with apparent !
justice, that neither houso is now endeav
oring to push legislation as in the eaily
daysot thu simoon. Still, there will not
probably bj nm of an extra aessioii. If
llie Democratic house ahall accept every
xtraviiu,tnt iinK.'inlmciit lo tin- iipprnpriu- ,
tiuu bids wliicli may m siiisti'il liy tint
wjimtc, tlit-ri! will ci-rtuinlT Iw no nw.l of
i n.i .i . . . ... i
such a st'ssniii. Tins thi-v dpi in tin; YNcst
I oint ami Diplomatic bills, nml an- tloiny
in thu iost tillici' bill. The. re.-ttlt of nc-:
qnii'siet'iici: on tli-: part of the house, if not i
1 1 1 -it 1 . ,. . 1
hecked, will be to toiw tip. next rmian-ss 1
the first Democratic in both branches for
25 years to inip ise further burdens on the
people. It will he tlic first Democratic
congress which will be compelled to put
taxes on tea and coffee, impose uny income,
tax, and do other unpalatable things. The
only way to prevent this was and is to sus
tain the house committee in the ample
urns it deems proper for each department
to receive, or, as might often properly be
ilone, vote even less sums.
The cipher telegrams investigation yes-
erday opened with a possible catch of dis
tinguished radicals. It was shown by offi
cers of the W. I'. Telegraph Co. that in
1870 P. M. General Tyncr telegraphed to
the secretary of the interior. Chandler.
from Indiana, to appoint two Indian agents,
and that $5,000 would bo given by the ap
pointees, tht; money to be used in the In
diana campaign, and that Chandler tele
graphed his compliance. It may hi; that
this is correct, but I doubt it. The tele-
rams were not in cipher. The proposition
was too gross lo be made openly or openly
accepted. Tym r's explanation is that the
telegrams weiie in a cipher previously
agreed cn, and that the appointment of
two 'Indian a''ents" meant that Secretary
(.'handler, who was also chairman of the
Republican general committee, would furn
ish $3,000 for the Indiana Republicans.
Whatever the true inwardness of these
dispatches may V', the committee made
one important discovery yesterday, which
was that Hayes has rewarded with oflice
the man who stole from the senate com
mittee room the alleged Democratic cipher
telegrams. This is an important but not
surprising discovery, as Hayes has tried to
reform all branches of the civil service
from the supreme court downwards, by the
appointment of men who intrigued, stole,
forged or committed perjury in the attempt
to make him president.
So much ignorance is shown in usually
wen nitormecl papers aiiout the "arrears
of pension law'' that I give again the prin
cipal section of it.
"That all pensions which have been
granted under the general laws regulating
pensions, or may hereafter be granted in
consequence of death from a cause which
originated in thu United States sorv'ree. dua.
ing the continuance of the late
war of the rebellion, or in consequence of
wounds, injuries or disease received or con
traded in said service during said war of
the rebellion, shall commence from the
death or discharge from said service of the
person on whose account the claim has been
or shall hereafter be granted, or from the
termination of the right of the party having
prior title to such pension."
Another section repeals the law which
formerly forbade the completion if not
complete with five years ot date of filing
in Pension oflice, of any claim not sustained
by record evidence. Another section pro
hibits thu employment of attorneys in
claims for arrears under the bill notwith
standing this section, papers like the New
York Evening Post and Baltimore Sun
say it is a bill for the relief of Washington
claim agents, and that these claim agents
expect to get half the money. They nm
iiot get a cent of it. They conld and would
be prevented from further practice before
the public ofiices. Your correspondent
never advocated the bill, ami, before its
passage caned attention to the enormous
amount involve', but it is plain to any one
that the bill was carefully drawn with a
view of pulling all the money, much or
little, without expense, in the hands of pen
sinners. In favor of the bil! it may be said,
also, that the money will receive a more
general distribution than would be possi
ble in any oilier way, ami will, nearly all of
it, go to in "ii, women and children who are
both poor and deserving. '
BULLETS MEETING IN THE Al It.
The probability of bullets and other
missils meeting in their lights when shot
from opposite points. In such numbers us
they Would necessarily be in battle, is cer
tainly not by any means doubtful. The
possibility of such missiles being welded
together by their contact, however, seems
so decidedly remote that such a result ap
pears to us certainly phenomenal. It ap
pears, however, from Forrest and Stream,
that the New York shot manufactures,
Messrs. Tallinn Bros., occasionally found
bullets welded together in the scrap-lead
brought from the hat tin fields of thu Ameri
can civil war, and Lieutenant Colonel John
A. .McLaughlin recently forwarded two bul
lets to the Scientific American no impact
iu c.icli other, .w hich aru also picked up on
tlu sniiie fields. Hu says that at the name

issurposed thatthelaru'er bullet had traveled
a shorter distance than the smaller at the

propelled by a. superior quality or quantity
of powder. This tog'ther with its weight
is thotmht to have had the effect of driving
the smaller bullet hack beyond the line

This world of ours is like a baby, m
that as fast as it gets rid of one complaint
it is alllicteil with another. Within the
last forty years it is safe, to say that the en
lightened portion of humanity has sucees
ively passed through at least fifty attacks
of mania, each different from the other.
The old china mania, the postages tamp dis

Now we shall have a new and altogether
