I lie matter 01 a township and city ha II
lias agilated the public mind more or less
for several years. 1 only care ut this time
to notice an idea -which seems to have
some advocates. It ia that the township
shall raise by township tux aoerlain sum,
the village hy village tax raise an equal
amount or more, and the two unite In the
erection of a building fur the use of both
township and village. Tlte township as
such, some eurs ugo, built a town hall;
but its location was not satisfactory, and
after a few years it was sold for other pur-
noses. v mi tins exception, the villain.'
has, at lis own cost and expense (except a
very small sum for repairs), furnished a
place lor the holding 01 township elections
iroin its earliest organization as a town
ship up ui thu present lime; and wheuever
the township trustees levy a township tax
for building a town hull, that levy reaches
and touches all me property in Iho vil
lage as well as township; aud as a mat
ter of fact, the properly within the village
limits pays uiore than tlirec-fourths of the
tax. The village is making muny and
costly liiiproieiiieiue in vtiiicu me town
ship ami tiie surrounding country are
deeply interested; and which add to the
desirability and value of the property all
aiHiiu us, lowmtiB wmeu it communes
nothing in the way of taxes: This being
the case, dots not equal justice to all re
quire that the township furnish the means
to build, at such time us may be advisable,
a amiable building for the joint use and
accommodation of both township and vil.

does, nevertheless, bo nc lit a lurge section
ot the BUirminuing country, which con

with the history of this undertaking, and
Know oi ine ousiacies mat nave so lur ue

law, hy virtue of which, on a Tote of two-
thirds ol ine people, oonits might be 1s-
Buco lor me iui iuo ui uiuaiug ine im
provement. An election was held, and
the proposition failed to receive the re
quisile two-thirds. The matter rested
quietly, while public opinion was slowly,
but surely cluuiging. In the spring
WU, the Council levied a tax of lour and
ouc-tcuth millsllor harbor improvement,
and in August proceedings were had
appropriate Ihe lands it was intended
should be dredged out. Thu award of the
jury, including compensation for lands
and damages, amounted to f;i,ur.iu. tin
the 27lh of February last, having realized
from the tax before mentioned a sufficient
sum, the village paid into court the ain't
of the award and became iwissossed of the
land. The balance of taxes, which will he
collected this summer and paid into the
villugc treasury in August next.
reac h something over two thousand dol
lars. Out of tins will have to be paid the
costs of court, Ihe balance of attorney fees,
urn! the expense, oi removing the store oc.
Ciinied by J. S. O'Neill, all of which, ac
cording lo the best cellmates that can
made, will amount to about eight hundred
dollars, leaving alauit twelve hundred dol
lars available lordredging. Action has
alreudv been taken by Ihe Council to
ticipale the August collection by the issue
ol bonds, payable ne niemoer tst, lttou, and
aiiplvim; the proceeds towards the com
nluli'on of the work ut as oarly a day
possible. It is not expected that this
sum ot twelve hundred uollurs will com
plete the work fully; but bids have been
solicited under a resolution of the C'ouu
cil, aulhori.ing a contract to he made
optional with thu Council us to the num.
her of yards lo be ee.cavati'd, the mininutn
being 10,000 anil Ihe maximum od.OHl
yards. It ia very evident that a contract
to remove fto.000 yards can be made at a
much lew price once per yard than for
only 10.0OO yards; aud if the contract
should be made at two. price contingent
upon the removal of the whole or only a
part, the incoming Council could, by levy,
ing a Uix as was done last year, and an
ticipating that tax by the issue ot bonds,
complete the work at once at less conl
than lo make separate contracts, involv.
ihg Increased fii'. If only KJ.OOOvanls
were to lie excavated it could hardly be ex-pectr-d
that any dredge from abroad would
put in a bid, as the expense of towing to
our harlior and hack would lie so large as
UideU'rthein from bidding, thus shutting
out com eli lion ; while, if 50.000 yards
were to lie removed it would pay them to
count. I fully believe It to be w ledum on
the part of the Council to provide for hav
ing the contractu let and the work fully
completed this seaaon, and at as early a
day as possible.
An expenditure of 2,SO0 t 3,0011 per
annum for Milice purposes is a forced con
tribution levied upon community by the
vices and passions of iBsir human nature
in Ita selfishness and blindness. All are
ready lo admit that he who respects him
self, holds aacrod the rights of others, and
obeys the law, is the only true man.
Selfishness tramples on the riirhta of oth
ers, sacrifices its neighbor on the altar or
greed and lust, and w hen confronted with
in Crimea, cries out as of old, 'Am I my
brother's keeper?' I see no way of escaie
fro.i, these burthens save hy a lifting up
of a higher standard. To reform the
world is the easiest of all tasks if rightly
undertaken. It is only necessity that each
individual should himself do right, and
the work is accomplished.
The Fire Department, in which we all
feel a commendable pride, still retains its
vigor and usefulness. We have had sev.
era! incipient fires, which, but for the
promptness and good conduct of the De
partment, would liave resulted in serious
conflagrations; and the Department de
serves the fostering care of the Council,
and the cordial appmlmtion of our citi
zens. It has been in contemplation to ef
fect an arrangement whereby the water
works erected hy, and belonging to the L.
S.ifc M. 8. H y Co. could le utilized in case
of lite at the depot, thereby releasing Luke
Eric engine, No. 2, for service at the Hur-
bor. Preliminary steps only, have been ta
ken in this direction ; and I would recom
mend that (he Council complete arrange
ments to eflect this transfer as ston as
consistent with the be.t Interests of the
tientlemen of the Council, into your
liands the people have committed all the
public interests of the whole village, as
wen ns tiie interests ot those who voted
against as those who voted for the success
ful candidates fur the honor of a seat in
tills Council. All should be carefully
guarded, ever hearing in miud that the
best government is one that insures the
largest possible individual freedom, con-
sistent with a due reaiiecl for the rights of
others. And while each individual mem-
ber may see more clearly and understand
more fully the wants and needs of p par
ticular locality. It Is the duty of each to
look over the whole, and Unit sectional or
personal feelings and interests should not
be allowed to blind the sight to greater
needs and more Important Interests In
other localities, and so to at on all ques
tions as to secure the greatest good to the

OUR NATIONAL CAPITAL.
The Courteous Contempt of Senators—
Troubles of the Ways and Means
Committee—The Diplomatic Bill—The
Way We are Represented
From Our Regular Correspondent.
The outlook for a long session is im
proving, the House and benale appear
to be pitched into illimitable dubta. Both
ends of the Capitol are at. war with one
another, aud each end is at war with it
self. Members and Senators seem to be
imbued with the spirit of strife. Senator
Edmunds is more than usually caustic;
Senator Blaiu. more pugnacious than ever.
Senator Carpenter aa able, and as ready to
strike whenever he sees a head of friend or
foe. One of the most entertaining epi
sodes of thu session was a debate . in the
Senate on the utterly insignificant ques
tion, in which two of these gentlemen ex
pressed their contempt for Mr. Blaine, and
in which Mr. Blaine expressed his oori
tempt for both pt them, all the stronger
aud more stinging because oouohed in Ian
guage courteous and parliamentary. I
The conclusion i to which one cames,
after hearing our legislative sons of tliun
der for eight or ten years, is, that taking
them on an average, one soli of thunder is
about as able as another, Oue may exoel
another in his peculiar acli or strategy,
but when the result ia summed up at the
close of the war, it wilt be foand, as far
aa members and Senators are individually
concerned, that the victories have been
dearly bought, and that defeats aro tn
fling. . .
The Ways and Means Committee are in
a Terr awkward situation, which it has
brought upon Hsell Dy usurping the luna
tions of the House in attempting the final
disposition of bills. The resolution to
place paper and articles used ui Its minu-
faeture upon the tree list is almost univer
sally pronounced a delusion and a suare.
It is said that the protectionists do not in
tend to permit shy such measure to get be
fore tne nouse: tna tner couia uot long
er defy public opinion by openly opposing
the placing of these articles on the free list,
and, therefore, they engaged in a scheme
lo defeat it by duplicity; that their pur
nose is to load the resolution down with
iron rails, salt, sugar, aud numerous other
articles so as to kill it in the committee.
Even If this charge be true it is doubtful
if the scheme oau be successfully carried
out. It can uot if the anli-protectiouisU
stiok together. The object of the latter is
to get the question before the House,
where, they believe, it can be passed.
Therefore, they will vote to report the
measure, no matter how it may be patched
or loaded in ooiumittee, leaving the duly
of separating the good from the had to the
House. Haying once voted to place cer
tain articles on the free lisr, the protection
ists on the committee cannot, for the sake
of consistency, vote against it in the com
mittee or in the House. Unfortunately
for the committee, even if it means well in
the measure, the public will not give it cred
it for its sincerity. -Thediulotnatio
appropriation bill will
probably be pressed in the Senate without

Washington, D. C. April 3d. 1880.
At last it seems that there is some hopes
of the State menagerie breaking np ita win
ter quarters. The sunbeams have been kisa
ing blossoms of the dogwood, and the good
housewives far away have written treasur
ed epistles by the score to their truant lords
to return to their own vine and fig-tree and
quit sponging off the state, for the past
week, and the hint has been taken and
doubtless the Legislaturewill adjourn Tues
day or Wednesday of next week. The past
week witnessed the passing of the long talk
ed of reorganization bills, and now the
work of renovating the state institutions of
Democratic rubbish will begin. This is
housecleaning seaaon, and a good job in all
the state institutions should be made. A
remarkably large number of bills were
passed during the last two or three days
and such earnest work should have
been done many days sooner. Tbe reor
ganization bill has been written up in the
Telborapu enough to need no repetition of
its provisions in this letter and as for suit
able men for Ihe places that are soon to be
made vacant, doubtless there will be a doz
en or so for each vacency.
The Local option bill for which nearly
two hundred thousand citizens of this state
have petitioned, was defeated in the house
Wedneeday, by a vole of 53 to 53. 17 Re
publicans voted the negative and only 3
Democrats voted the affirmative. On
Thursday the vote was reconsidered and
another vote taken on its passage, but this
resulted in a second and final defeat. On
Friday a bitl was introduced in the house
by Sir. Harmon for the suppression of mak-
iug butter of impure materials, and or
Saturday Mr. Covert offered a resolution
requesting the boards of trade of Cincin
nati - to investigate the manufacture of
oleomargarine and butterine, and report
on the next session of the House. Few peo
ple have any df finale idea of the amount
of butterine manufactured in this atate.
Thousands of pounds aredailymanufacLur-
cd and sold in Cincinnati, intbe local mar

is impossible to get tbe exact figures, for,
owing to the prejudice which ia alill held

of whom doubtless, have been consuming

sold at from 20 to 28 cents and under the
representations of pseudo farmers ( huck
sters in buokr.m) who offer it on the mar
kets, finds its way to the tables of the first
families, principal hotels and boarding
houses. A few mornings ago, one of the
members of the Columbus City Council was
seen laying in asupplyof, what he thought
a choice article of cream made butter, and
he didn't know any belter until the next
day when it began to crumble and give
forth an un&ayory odor. Candor compels

they are not held together for any length

Being up to Ihe center of the town the

straight Republican caucus, by some who
thought the movement was only the more
favorable to the anti-town house rule, aa
many Democrats were kept out who are
not for favoring that hohliv anv longer
