OH V. DAY'S KEVOItT OF OFFICIAL
in our (lispatctics lately mere lias
nut been more than an average gather
ing of items concerning ofiieial rascal
ity, but there has been enough, nevci
tbeless, to set people thinking as to the
eh trader of the men who now represent
i lie government of tho country.
lit the first place we have the news
thiit Col. Clifford Thomson, late chief
dak in the internal revenue bureau,
H'ttMitly sold, for five thousand dollars,

Central tax decision, by which means
certain parties were enabled to secuie
themselves against loss. The facts us
to tliiB case, a Tribune di-pateh informs
up, were communicated to the president,
and the righteous wrath of that terrible
upholder of the public virtue may be
imagined from tho fact that-' the re

Next, a Mobile dispatch announces
that Mr. G; L. Putnam, pojtmaster of
that city, baa been arretted on an indict
merit presented by the grand jury
charging him with bribery. This is
one of Mr. Grant's roccnt appointments,
and it was made against of the few re
spectable republicans in Alabama. An
huuest roan is said to have been re
moved, and tho place was given to 1'ut
nam, who bad beeu convicted of appro
priating public moneys to his own ute,
while he wan connected with the utate

will wngT oho small wngor that it will
not bo collected, and another that no at

Mr. d'rniit'rt administration hao cvci
made Mich an attempt, wo have not
heard of it. Wo have not yet had the
pleasure of publishing the fact ol a dol
lar of Ktolcn money having thus been
recovered to the government. On the
contrary tho public bavo seen the ad
ministration actually conniving at the
Cieapo of defaulting officials, and con-
cnting to the impunity of any number
of their bondsmen. The worst penalty
of their uiidcr-tho-Orant regime 19 the
discovery and publication of the thiel s
" insanity." We bavo no doubt that n
verdict of insanity to the amount of $'.),-
000,000 will finally bo brought 111 the
case of tho ox-collector.
The moral rottenncs of tho present
republican party is shown, not so much
by the frequcucy or crime among itn
prominent and ofiieial representatives,
as by the impunity with which crime is
invariably by that class committed
