IjiMxtftt Circml.-vtion ot any Daily in
M.U. Itarrpll, Ktlitor.
Onk millioa dulars in cash is tlie price
paid by Rutherford B. Hayes for his fraud
ulent title to the presidency ; and he pays it
not out of his own pocket or the pockets of
his friends, but out of the Treasury.
Tub Springfield Register says that the
Senator from the 3 lth ii.-.tnct, familiarly
known as Kuyke, is distinguished by his
dirty lmen, bad grammar, and devotion to
Loan aud himself. The writer certainly
knows i hi .
Thk aggregate of the salaries bestowed
by Hayifs in payment for tlio crime Ity
which he still benefits is one-quarter ot a
million dollars annually. The recipients
ore secure of Ihcir income as long as Hayes
remains in the White House. His four
years are their four years; he dares not cast
them off, for they hold him in their power.
The Mouse of Congress lias decided that
line of subsidized steamers will not be
maintained between the United States and
Brazil. While reasonable aid should bo
extended to enterprises of that character,
no application for aid that covers such
m enormous steal as that covered by the
so-called Brir.ilian subsidy, ought to be
O.N Saturday last an cx-mcmber of the
New York Stock Exchange, who, ten years
ago, was a millionaire, and gavo at one
time. 100,000, to the New York churches
utood at the bar of one of the city courts to
receive the sentence of tho court for steal
ing a second-hand shirt and coat, worth
probably three dollars. It is quite needless
to add that whisky did it.
Sinck the yellow tever rages rs an epi
demic in Rio Janeiro, defying all efforts to
arrest or confine its spread, very close com
mercial relations with Brazil are not very
desirable. In this view of the case, we are
pot disposed to lament the defeat of the
appropriation, to maintain a regular
steamship mail line between tho principal
American ports and fever-smitten Rio
The public is so frequently shocked by
the details of bungling executions, that it
. is somewhat surprising that there is not an
indignant and universal demand for a
change in the manner of inflicting capital
punishment. But as suck a demand is net
likely to be made, and as it is highly
probable that no heed would be given to it,
if made, why can't tho different Legisla
tures now in session adopt tho suggestion
of the Kentucky editor, aiid offer a gold
medal, annually, to the Sheriff who may
how that he has performed the nn st
unique and scientific piece of ncck-break-ing
accomplished during the year. This
, would excite a laudable rivalry, an 1, in
time, insure to capital offenders the services
of export, and, possibly, gold-nvidalcd
TnE Greenbiickers of I'iko county, in
this State, have asked Congress to so amend
the Homestead act that the settler shall not
only have his hundred nndsixtyacres of land
free of cost, but the sum of seven hundred
and fitly dollars with which to improve it.
From, a Greenback standpoint there is
nothing unreasonable in this. Absolute
paper money , would cost tho government
othlng but the printing. It would involve
' so greater expense than tho small cost of
tamping upon a scrap of paper "this 'Is
$750." But why.looking at things from the
jatne sUndpoInf .couldn't this whole matter be
viapllfiodt It seems to us that it a mere
"say-so'1 is money actual, tangible money
there is no rulo of logic that would ex
cludo the conclusion that a "say-so" Island
also. Why not, then, bring this whole
Homestead business to the Greenback locus
viz : a scra of paper benring the govern
mental stamp of: "This is 100 acres of
land and $7.')() wherewith to improve it."
As tho land would have as much of the
iikal about it tis the money, and ns the
Grccnbacker insists that there exists no
need fur better money, ho would be estopped
from expressing dissatisfaction with land
thitt was confessedly as good ns Ins money.
Whii.k tho Republican papers have as-1
sailed with great violence Fernando Wood's
bill appropriating $27,000,000 of the
$150,000,000 of money lying idle
in the treasury vaults, to meet
the demands that will be
made under the arrears pension law, not
one of them lias assigned a single valid
reason why the appropriation might not,
ought not, iii fact to be made. .There is not
the remotest probability that one-half the
amount on hand will be required for pur
poses of resumption; but granting that
lemands of that kind would require the
whole $iri0.000,000, the Secretary of the
Treasury could replace the $27,000,000 by
the sale of 4 per cents in less than twenty
days. Just why $150,000,000 of idle, un
productive money should bo kept in the
treasury, untouched, from month to month,
the financial solons of the Republican
party have not attempted to explain.
WoodV bill is the suggestion of practical
statesmanship and ought to become a law.
Will the Illinois Legislature show it
self abreast with the enlightened require
mcnta of the age, by passing Col. Matthew's
bill prohibiting corporal punishment in the
public schools of the State? The better
public sentiment that has grown up during
tha past few years demands it, and will not
cease to press the demand until the brutal
izing whipping post is hustled out of every
school room in the country. Stripes and
welts and bruises upon the tender flesh of
our children are no longer required, in any
civilized country, as a necessary accompani
ment of school life; and the teacher who
cannot manage children without inflicting
such punishment, has mistaken his calling.
Whenever a child becomes so vicious and
hardened tiiat appeals to bis sympathies
and affections are lruitless -when he is so
lost to shame, is so reckless of his good
name, that nothing but blows and bruises
will conquer him, he is not a fit associate of
average school children, and should be ex
pelled from the school. And show us altoy
of this kind, and we will show you a boy
who is b?atcn like a dog by his father
and mother. Such a boy would
demoralize a whole school, and the direc
tors should close the school room doors
against him, as they would
against a moral pestilence. Go
on, then, Col. Matthews, urge
your bill with zeal and industry. Tho bet
ter sentiment of the agu approves your
measure the better people of the State
applaud your efforts.
FROM WASHINGTON. .
(Spe:ifil Correspondence of the Cairo Bulletin )
Washington, March 1.187U.
That was a pleasing incident in the
house the other day, when Speaker Ran
dall asked for a committee of investigation
to vindicate his character from the assults
of a newspaper correspondent, and received
not oniy a unanimous vote in his behalf
but a vindication at the handB of many of
the Republican members individually. Mr.
Hale said emphatically that he did not
think that any committee was needed to vin
dicate the Speaker, for nil that knew him
knew perfectly well that his character for
integrity, public and private, was unassaila
ble Judge Kelley and others repeated sub
stantially the same remark!, uutil finally
the auditors signified their approval by ap
plause, all of which must have been very
gratifying to Mr. Randall, who, however
objectionable he may be to some as a pnr
tisan.lcader, certainly stands high as a man
and public officer.
Tho senate spent about four hours in ex
ecutive session, and confirmed a large num
ber of executive nominations. But there
was one case of rejection that is very sig
nificant. On the fourth instant the name
ofE. T. Fox was sent in for re-appointment
as collector of the port of Bangor,
Maine. Shortly after that Senator Ham
lin made a brief speech in opposition to
the Now York nominations. On the sixth
instant the name of Mr. Fox was with
drawn, and soon after tho name of another
person, unknown and unacquainted with
the government service, was sent in. Mr.
Fox is an honest, efficient oII'k er, who takes
little part in politics, and answers every re
quirement of the so-called civil service re
form, and thu cose was aggravated hy the
president's having sent his name in and
then withdrawn it right upon the heels of
another personal controversy. Well, this
case came up in the senate yesterday, and
tho new appointee did not receive u single
vote, which is a case of rejection, I believe,
without precedent. What thu president
will do now is not known, but the univer
sal judgment is that ho mad'! it grand mis
take, which enn be repaired
only by again nominating Mr. Fox
The house committee on appropriations
recommended non-coiwurrence with tho
ecnate amendments to the post otlico bill,
but will allow discussion in tho house of
tho amendment relating to establishing the
Brazilian mail steamship lines. This is
accepted as a triumph for tiiat measure,
whether it shall go to a conference coinmr
tce or not, aud its final adoption is confi
dently predict 'd.
Resolutions and laemorials are pouring
in from all sides for and against the presi
dent's signature of the anti-Chinese Ii li
lt is supposed here that ho will veto it. and
as the measure has not two-thirds of either
house at its buck of course that means
It is understood that a majority of the
senate committee on appropriation has
agreed to the house provision in favor of
giving out the public printing by con
tract, wiih au amendment providing that it
shall be done at least 10 per cent cheaper
than the present cost. It is probable that
this will prevail. But those who ought to
know say it will not effect any change,
since the government printing office does
work much nmro economically than it can
be done by private parties. From this time
forth, all day aud night sessions will I the
order, and the utmost vigilance will he re
quired to prevent loose legislation. Opin
ions still vary as to whether with all dili
gence the work of the session can be ac
complished. Both political parties declare,
that they will not "lock down" from the
position for and against the repeal of the
election laws and the pnymeut of expenses
for prosecuting the violaters oft hose laws, so
that we cannot see the way clear to the dis
posal of the appropriation bills to which
those measures are taken. But a few days,
perhaps a few hours, will tell the story as
to an extn session, who is '"one of tho;
things that no fellow can find out."
