, HOW THEY STEAL. ,55
k ' Th$ following pointed and atle artl
cle from the New York San shows up
the villainy of the Radicals at Wash
ington, how they lay plans to steal, and
then improve on their plan as they go
along:
THE INAUGURATION BILL.
At the last inauguration of Gen
Grant an effort was made by the cab
inet and others in authority to invest
that occasion with exceptional inter
est, and to organize a pageant after
the monarchical pattern. Umcial prop
er ty and usage were recklessly cast aside
in order to make the parade imposing,
and to familiarize the spectators with
an idea or the price and pomp of per
ponal government. The cadets from
West Point and the midshipmen from
Annapolis wertfor the first time taken
away from their studies, and used to
make a figure in the unseemly show.
As that innovation upon the pnnci
pal and practice of those institutions
was not possible without positive or
ders from the hichest sources, the pres
ident could not have been ignorant of
the action of the secretaries of war
and the navy, if indeed his consent
was not neeessary for so subversive a
precedent So that the president's
own official household exerted the
most uuusual powers to make this dis
play for their chief, just as if no deli
cacy or decency was involved in aach
a departure from the simplicity and
republican dignity that had always
been associated witn a presidential in
auiruration.
Had this homage not been agreeable
to Gen. Grant, it never would have
been ventured. Those most active in
promoting it were too near his person
and too well informed as to his tastes
. not to know that the incense was
irratcful to his senses. Courtiers are
not apt to make a mistake when en
gaged in flattering ambition or mag
n ifying merit. If the president's in
clinatious were once plain, in keeping
with his humble fortune and limited
chance for indulgence, they are now
radically changed and lor the worse :
for never before has any incumbent of
tho white house a fleeted so much
ponip, or permitted flunkyisra to dis
figure its propriety with such vulgar
externals.
The Washington ring, who owe
their places and power to the presi
dent, and who surround him with their
sinister influences, were mainly instru
mental in getting up the spectacle for
the 4th of March. Having possession
of the local government, all its ma
chinery was employed in every possi
Lie way to give it eclat, and to that
end the military were pressed into ser
vice from various cities, so as to make
that lcatnre supcrceda the civic char
acter of the occasion.
But their great crowning achieve
ment was to be the inauguration ball
Not content with the decorous custom
which good taste had long established
for this closing ceremony, the coarse
crew who assumed control of it must
splurge upon a grand scale. They
erected an enormous building, levied
contributions on the officeholders, and
issued circulars to the taithlul lar and
wide. The tickets were put at a high
price, and the ball was advertised as
something which every loyal friend of
the administration was expected to
patronize.
In spite of all these appliances and
the fact that there are six thousand
public employes in Washington, the
ball was a numiliating and disastrous
failure. It became known that the
colored element was to be represented,
and so Hociety was shocked and would
not attend on any terms. That excuse,
at least, was found for refusing to as
sociate with the rine crowd. Iheco
creed officials and the ring had the af
fair pretty much to themselves. As
the night was intensely cold, the effect
produced by a mixture of cloaks, furs
overcoats, heavy shawls, and the like,
can be well imagined, while the ma
rine band were discoursing their best
bad music. And a.s if to consult the
eternal fitness of things, one of the
president s police commissioners.
"(JrauJ Democrat' who had occupied
a casemate at Fort Lafayette for dis
loyalty, was chosen to conduct Mrs,
Grant in the ball-room in presence of
the diplomatic corps, and while sena
tors and others were figuring on the
committee ot arrangements !
And now comes the disgraceful
sHuel to this part of the business.
Notwithstanding the millions which
the ring have stolen lrom the people
t aslnneton, and from the money
voted by congress, the cost of that ball
is still unpaid, four months after it
was giveu. Those who furnished it
have been swindled, -while those who
projected it have been strengthened at
the W hi to House, Uad as 1 weed and
his set were, they never indulged in
this sort of mean rascality. And when
the lat Mr. Fisk entertained the pres
ident, he at least footed the bills' of
lus gorgeous hospitality; indeed, he
sometimes went turthcr and looted
those of the president also.
Nor is this the worst. The legisla
ture which the ring owns and runs in
the district ot Columbia, has recently
adjourned, and its acts are now coming
to light Among the many intamous
laws passed with and without legisla
tive forms, was one in these words :
"To defray public and national ex
cnses incurred in behalf of the dis
trict of Columbia at the inauguration
of the president of the Lnited btates.
March 4, 1873, to be expended under
the approval ot the committee here
tolbre appointed by the governor of
the district ot t olumbia at a public
meet i us ot the citizcus ot the district
No bill for this scandalous purpose
was ever introduced, no such proiwsi
tion was ever discussed or ever heard
of, except among the rogues who per
pet rated the outrage, until the lecisla
ture adjourned. It is a deliberate
fraud, prompted by the ring who rule
and ruin tho district, devised to extin
guish a part bt the cost of maugura
ting the president bv robbing the tax
pnyers who had no connection with
the ball. Aud yet (ittnerni (jrant pro
tects the thieves who offer him feasts
on such conditions.
The Graugors are refreshingly plain
in their resolutions. There is no ma
chine ring about the following passed
by a farmers' meeting held at Clifton
Illinois:
"Resolved, That we believe a thief
should be called a thief, without re
gard to social or political standing, and
we characterize the recent salary grab
hy our t ungresa and 1 resident as no
better than a steal.
The Charleston (S. C.) Xews and
Courier says that that city can point
to scourcs of young men of gentle
blood and excellent education who are
making a comfortable livelihood by
h-ird manual labor. "'They could not
find the sort of work they liked, and
they took what they could get
Throughout the State the whites are
working like good fellows. It is their
only chance, and they know it."
1 The 3ife of a Hindoo widow in her
dvn country is for many reason fen
unpleasant one : and although' the in
stances in which they are burned on
their husbands funeral pyres are not
as frequent as lormeny, wiuow9 are
still considered of comparative unim
portance after the demise of the hus-
Da-ia. '
Cases of re-marriace among Hindoo
widows are very rare ; and when they
occur are seldom productive ot Hap
piness, for even in the cities ot iiengal
the couple are disowned by their rela-
i it . i j:
lives, ana in me rurai uisincu? mcy
become practically outcasts. The ad
vanced tneists of the country formally
sanction such marriages, but as the
hmida of native families are generally
orthodox, the approval of the other
nartv does not avail much.
in the presidency oi juaaras recently
a native eentleman was proclaimed an
outcast by the beat of tom-tom for
having given his widowed daughter in
marriage, and was prohibited from ap
proaching the temples and sacred
tanks of the country. In cases of
this kind the village barber and wash
erwoman are forbidden to do anything
for the newly married ones: and in
the event of death no one will help to
carry the body to the river side.
The theory of the Hindoo law is
that on the death of the husband
his property goes to his widow, in or
der that she may devote its proceeds
to oblations and ceremonies for the
good of of her husbands soul. Such
ceremonies, however, can only be per
formed while the widow remains
chaste. An important test case was
decided bv the full bench of the High
Court of India about the- middle of
April. , The question involved -was
whether a widow should lose her hus
band's estate by living with a lover.
After long consideration it was deci
ded by a majority that as no text could
be educed from the Sanscrit sacred
books and cannon law to show that
she should be disinherited, Bhe is enti
tled to keep the estate.. It is consid
ered a great triumph for the widows,
for although their friends would not
approve of their remarrying, anequal
ly permanent connection of this kind
it seems would not be thought dis
creditable. The Conservative natives are very
much displeased with this decision,
and if sufficient ground can be found,
wish an appeal taken to the Privy
Council in London. The advanced
party on the other hand, are delighted.
It is said that if the judgment had been
different, so that a widow would have
been disinherited for unchastity, there
would have been no limit to the accu
sations brought by interested persons
against widows ; that a system of do
mestic espionage would have sprung
op, and the courts would have been
fillafl with suits of an intolerable
character.
Where it would have been for the
material interest .of so many persons
thatfrality should .increase, it would
have been idle to hope for that social
purity which the Conservative party
say has been overthrown by this de
cision. Had the court rendered a dif
ferent opinion the great danger of
many cases being truniped up by the
crafty and avaricious is apparent
This is the first Etep ; the next-will
be a change in the native public opin
ion so that it will approve of a widow's
marriage.
The Celebrated Judge Lynch.
"Mr. Bartholomew Lynch, says the
New Orleans Herald, who presides
over Kellogg's Fourth District Court,
and who has won such unenviable no
tority in the trial of the Picayune li
bel cases, is a son of Erin, and speaks
with a broad brogue.
There is a humorous as well as an
irascible phrase to Lynche's character
It is related of him that not long since
a lawyer who is also a son of the
Green Isle was arguing a somewhat
tedious case before him, when Lynch,
having satisfied himself as to the mer
its of the case, and dreading a lengthy
speech, said quite abruptly to the vo
luble attorney, whom we shall name
Hagan:
'"Mr. Hagan. sit down sir."
The attorney, with a coolness that
was refreshing, paid not the slightest
attention to the command, and proceed
with the argument,
-"Mr. Hagan," said Lynch, more
pointedly,-' take your sate, sir.' '
The lawyer scarcely noticed the in
terruption, but plunged ahead as vig
orously as ever.
"Mr. Sheriff, sate Mr. Hagan !"
The Sheriff hesitated a moment to
see if his superior was in earnest, when
suddenly the irate magistrate, with
an attempt to smother his wrath that
was a palpable failure, exclaimed :
"Mr. Hagan, go on then," and after
whispering something to the clerk, he
relapsed into a listening attitude, re
maining perfectly quiet for an hour
and a half, at which time, the lawyer
having exhansted the subject and be
ing quite exhausted, sank into a chair
and saturated an extensive pocket
handkerchief with the copious per
spiration that beaded his legal brow.
Lynch raised himself slowly in his
chair, aud inquired.
"Are ye through, Mr. Hagan?
"Yes, sir."
"Are ye sure you'er through ?"
"Yes. sir. auite sure."
"Well, sir," remarked Lynch, "your
argument has had no more ettect upon
the Court than a spoonful of water on
the back of a duck. There's been
judgement entered against ye for an
hour and more."
EPITAPHS.
A stone cutter received the follow
ing epitaph from a German, to be cut
upon tne tonipstone oi nis wue :
"Minevife Susan is dead, if she had
life till nex friday she'd been dead
shust two veeks. As a tree falls so
must it stan, all tings is impossible
mit uod.
Any one who visits Childwald, Eng
land, can read in the cemetery there,
the following :
Here lies me and my three daughters,
lironglit here by using Seidlits waters.
If i'c hnd stuck to Eusom salts.
We wouldn't have been In these hero
vaults."
The following lines are said to have
been copied from a stone iu Oxford,
New Hampshire :
-To all my friends I bid adieu.
A more sudden death you never knew.
As I was lending the old mure to drink,
She kicked and killed me quicker'n a
wink."
On a tombstone in South Carolina is
the following beautiful tribute to de
parted worth :
"Here lies the noddy of Robert Gordln.
.Mouth almighty and teeth ackordln.
Stranger trend lightly over this wonder.
If he opens his mouth you are gone by
thunder."
The original Ravels all live, but
the youngest is more than sixty years
old. When this troupe was last in the
United States two young ladies were
riding in a car and wished to open the
window near them. They failed and
one suggested asking the aid of an old
gentleman sitting ou the seat next be
hind them. "Oh, no," responded the
other, "don't trouble the old man."
To their astonishment this aged indi
vidual arose and stepped into the aisle,
made a low bow to the young ladies,
and then turned a summersault for
ward and then one backward. After
this he made another bow, and then
threw up the window. This was Ga
briel Havel, aged seventy.
Never contract a friendship with
anybody till you have firstx eamined
how he behaved himself to his former
friends ; for vou'll have good reason
to hope that he'll be the same t j you
as he was to them. Take a sufficient
time before you profess yourself a
friend, but, that once done, endeavor
to be always such; for it is equally
shameful to have no friends at all;
and to change them often.
...
A ciTr editor once asked a farmer
who was inclined to literature for
something from his pen. He was
shortly afterwards surprised at receiv
ing by express a young pig, charges
unpaid.

A PLAIN PROPOSITION.
WANTED I
Everybody to know that it will cost yon
nothing to have a Wheeler & Wilson Sew
ing Machine bronght to yonr honse and
shown to yon, and if yon do not buy there
will be no hard thoughts, but many thanks
for giving me a chance to sell you, as I
warn you it will be to your interest. I hope
you will avail yourself of the opportunity.
Inequalities which recommend the Wheel
er A Wilson are many, among the most
important are the few I shall here state:
It makes the lockstitch without a shuttle.
It has but two slots and needle eye to thred. .
It has but one tension to regulate. .It has
no oil above Its cloth surface, hence it is
impossible to get your work soiled. It feeds
the goods from both sides of the needle
avoiding the twisting of the work so troub
lesome with others. '
There has been a standing challenge for
three years of 21,000 for any shuttle ma
chine thatdoesnot contain at least half as
many more pieces as the New Wheeler &
Wilson. S1.000 for one that can sew as rap
id. $1,000 for one that can do a greater va
riety or better work. 51,000 for one that is
as noiseless.. $1,000 for one that the change
of needle, stick, thread and tension can be.
made upon as quickly. $1,000 for one with
all the joints adjustable like the New
Wheeler & Wilson ; and 51,000 reward for a
Wheeler & Wilson Sewing Machine that is
worn out.
I will make old machines (no exception
of the 20 year kind) sew as well as when
new for from 83 to 15. Parties at a distance
can take their machines off the table and
send them to me with their bobbins and
hemmers and have them repaired.
All machines sold delivered to your
house, with full instructions in its use with
all of the attachments furnished free of
charge, which other companies charge ex
tra for and machines guaranteed 3 years.

with a perfect certainty that

ance, founded on proof, that no harm, can
rise from its use in any quantity.
That whieh protects from or prevents this
disorder must be of immense service hi the
communities where it prevails. Prevention
is better than cure; for the patient escapes tne
risk which be must run in violent attacks of
this baleful distemper. This "Ctnui" expels
the miasmatic poison of Fever auasl Agsia
from the system, am prevents the develop
ment of the disease, if taken on the first
approach of its premonitory symptoms, A
great superiority of this remedy over any
other ever discovered for the speedy and cer
tain cure of Intermittents is, that it contains
no Quinine or mineral; eenseqnently it pro
duces no quinism or other injurious effects
whatever upon the constitution. Those cured
by it are left as healthy as if they had never
had the disease. - ,

variety of disorders arise from its irritation,

Bawds, Caltc, Paralysis, and derange
ment of the Stomach, all of which, when
originating in this cause, put on the inter
mittent type, or become periodical. This
"Cckb expels the poison from the blood,
and consequently cures them all alike. It la
an invaluable protection to immigrants and
persons travelling or temporarily residing in
the malarious districts. If taken occasion
ally or daily while exposed to tha infection,
that wul be excreted from the system, and
cannot accumulate in sufficient quantity to
ripen into disease. Hence it is even mora
valuable for protection than cure; and few
wul ever suffer from Intermittents if they
avail themselves of tha protection this rem
edy affords.
For Liver Complaints, arising from torpid
ity of the liver, it Is an excellent remedy,
stimulating the Liver into healthy activity,
and producing many truly remarkable cures,
where other medicines fail. ' '
