The Washington corrc.ioii(lcnt '
the Chicago Tribune, gives some pen
portraits of the "friends of the admin
' istration. " The pictures are not
flattering but they are no doubt
truthlul, having been drawn
by an original radical. Among
Grant's supporters, there can
scarcely be found one man, of
whom suspicion has not been enter
tained at some time or oilier, of dis
honesty in some shape in public affairs.
" Birds' of a feather," etc.
The Boston Travelhr thinks that
" the president's recommendation of
amnesty was a surprise to congress
' and was received with general satisfuo
1 tion. " A cotemporary wants to
know what congress was surprised at ?
Was it that a man, while overriding
the south with his janizaries, should be
putting on the cloak of magnanimity ?
or i- it because he is only pveli'iiding
to take the fust step in a measure,
which six your Frvm .. j.v.
personal observation, he recommended
as so feasible and necessary that Charles
Sumner had to call him a whitewa-hcr
for it ?
THE radical carpet-bag government
of South Carolina, have involved the
finances of tho state government in
almost irretrievable ruin. An investi
gating committee which has hcen sit
ting in New York during the summer,
has just issued a report. Itegarding
the state debt tho committee declare
that thoy " cannot believe other than
' the fearful truths that stare us in the
face, that the bonus and stocks printed
4 by the American Bank Note compauv.
'82,510,000, represent the liabilities
vi uiu uiuiu, jor which ine laitti or
'credit of the state, however unlaw
' fully presented, has been pledged for
payment. The contingent liahility
incurred by railroad endorsements
swell the total to 820,000,000. " In
conclusion, the report nays : " 'J'Jio
' committee, in view of the atrocity of
these disclosures, tho work of the
4 present administration, or rather a
4 rmg composed of leading officers of
' the government of tho . statu, unhesi
' tatingly say that the republican party
' which elevated them to power must
' show its condemnation of such troaeh
ery and knavery by an immediate and
'united effort, by legislative enact -1
mentas well as by every other delih
' ertive measure, to bring to justice
'those who have prostituted the au
' thority with which they have been
' clothed, and so flagrantly and crinft
' inlly imperilled the trusts to them
' confided. "

Tlio imperative demand in larL'o cilia
for some means of travelling quickly from
point to point call forth t-omo novel de
signs for securing rapid transit. Tlio
most curious that litis yet boon projected
is a plan, already patented, lor a moving
sidowulk, which shall bo in perpetual mo
tion, carrying pedestrians t Vho rate of
ten miles nn hour, a speed which they
can increase by their u bolo power of iu-
uepenucni motion.
'lho particulars of llio plan aro briefly
these: It is proposed to have a series o"f
pillars along tho outer verge of tho curb
stones rising to thu height of thu second
story of ordinary buildings. Kjmco
between tho tops ot'thc-o pili-rs nnd tho
buildings adjucont is t..tic a siduwall;, one
halt of whiub s moviiblo and thy other
half .utlonary. It Is to be reached at
uvcry corner by a Malrwny. On the inner
or stationary walk pedestrians can pan
back and forth nt their leisure, entering
tho stores and ofllces which might then
occupy the sccond-itory of thu building,
and lie entered immediately from tin,
street. Tho other half of thci wall; made
of a sott of lattice-work and moving on
small trucks which are beneath thosurl'aeo
and nltnguther concealed from view, is
propelled at thu rate often mllus an hour
by engines beneath tho surfaco of the
ground at such interval), as may bo neces
sary to secure tho requisite power. Tho
sidewalk is moved bv fiictimi rulK-rs.
