The committee appointed to look into
the Credit Mobilicr bribery charges i
working tbe matter up Irately. Last
week Oakee Ames was beforo this body,
ad wit citmincd by it, in which his
trioiautlooa with tho tr.cmbur.i of Oon
(run were shown, lie said that a nuni
bcr of congressmen, (jiving thctr natnee,
owned somo of this Credit Mobilier stock,
and that ho held it in trust for, and paid
the dividends to them.
By this statement it is c-tablished that
certain members of Congress have invested
in one manner or other in Credit Mobilicr
or Union Pacific stock ; and sinco the
fact has come 10 forcibly to light, instead
of further denying all kuowledgc of tho
(Fair, they now only attempt to evade
the chargo that tbey gave their votes
instead of their money for it. Tkey
will now confess to the ownership of
uch stock, former denials to the contrary
notwithstanding, and declare hcir right
as ooressmeo to iotest io this or any
other stock they please ; all of which
may be very true, but by the chain of
evidence that has been brought to light,
it looks as if somo of tbem had been
bribed; or, if not, they are guilty of an
act equally gross voting for measures
that affected tho value of stocks in which
tbey had previously investod.
The charge of bribery was first made
during tbc recent campaign, and was
supposed by many to be merely an else
tioneoring scheme, but recent develop
ments sbow the inaccuracy of this opin
ion. At that tituo several whose toes
were too badly pinched to grin and bear
it, came out in public denials not only
of the charge of bribtry, but that they
owned any such stock. Uakcs Anics,
who made the contracts with tbem, now

don't, since An.es says they do, and arc,t0uri affairs, wo find a change; these
shifting their ground of defense by cay- same Republican organs drop their ar
ing that "a members of Congress they rogance, and affect better manners. They
have a rielit to invest in stock.." If thav
have, and we will not question the right,
why did they deny.it in tbe first instance ?
Probably because they xcerc bribed witb
it, and were eo confused and dismayed
when tho fact was made public, that
tbey couldn't think clearly enough to
advance this stunning argument, but just
stumbled upon a wholesa'e denial of both
tbe charge of bribery and the ownership
f Credit Mobilier atoek.
Take tbem at their last plea, and tbey
stand in no better light before honest
people than tbey would under the first
charge. If it is true that they own tbe
stock, it is aliio true that they have voted
for measures as congrefsm.-n affecting its
value, thereby allowing personal interest
to prompt their actions in a matter which
as tho pcoplu's representatives should
havo been governed wholly by unselfish
motives. In tho one cuao they arc paid
to vote for a certain measure ; in tho other
they increase the value of what they al
ready own by voting for a certain meas
ure. Either is bribery, though tboy may
be called by different nnniua,

In Missouri wo have a strong Demo
cratic msjority and a feeble ltepulican
minority ; but at Washington wo have a
strong Republican majority and a feeble
Opposition minority. This condition of
things gives riso to a cutious phenom
enon : the ltepublioan press of this city
are just as convinced that Democrats
ought not to be listcnod to, at Washing
ton, as tbey are that Republicans ought to
be listened to ut Jefferson City. I'heir
arrogance about matters at Washington
is exhibited in cs offensive a form at pos-
sioie; tneyiuttmato that all puniic ques
tions arc committed to the exclusivo cua
tody of the triumphant Republican major
ity, and that tbe defeated Opposition
have no right to obtrude their opinions
on any of these questions ; that the ua
jority need not listen to them, but settle
tbo tariff, the civil cervico subject, the
Southern question and all other great
national matters of dispute in their own

jority not to elect a Bourbon, but to
chose a Liberal Democrat wbo stands on
the Cincinnati platform: and one of them
makes this plea to the majority in bebulf
of moderate, nonpartisan legislation :
'Iu this state a great victory has been
won by tbo Democracy. What will they
do with it? Republicans ero as deeply
concerned in the question as tbey. We

and must sink or swim in the samo boat

If we were disposed to take a purely
partisan view ot things wo would say
perhaps, that this is impertinence, but as
we are accustomed to take a different view
of things, wo say that it is first-rate
doctrine. We heartily commend it to
tho attention 0! tho Democratic and
Liberal majority that will control tho new
legislnturo. That majority outfit not to
iguoru tho Republican minority io the
state and legislate in a partisian spirit
tor tne interest ot tbe msjority. is
legislation ought to be directed to tho
weal of the wholo state and tbo benefit
of all its citizens ; and if the feeble Re
publiean minority shall offer reasonable
suggestions and propositions for the
promotion of the general interests, we
hope tho majority will treat tbem with
consideration and respect. The fact that
tho Republican majority at Washington
wilt pursuco a totally different eourse
from this will pay no attention to tbe
minority and be animated by a spirit of
intolerant partyism does not releaio tbc
Democratic majority in Missouri from the
obligation to bt governed by a higher
ami more patriotic principle. That ma
jority baa tbo right and tbe power to
ahapo legislation; but a reasonable re
spect for the minority and a supreme de
votion to the welfare of the whole com
monwealth should never be lost sight ef.
What CoNonEss Hah Done The
recent congressional session of nineteen
days lias been iudustriously spent by the
two bodies, and with considerable results
by the House of Hepresentaiivcs. This
body has passed tho bill to pay the states
of Ohio, Indiana and Illinois tiro per
cent of the talct of certain publio lands;
tbo Indian and pension appropriation
bill ; the bill to appropriate 9100,000
for the purposes of tho Vienna ezposi
tion ; the bill to reduce the number of
internal revenue officers ; and it has also
hd the decency to institute an investiga
tion of the Credit Mobilier standal.
Of theso bills tho Senate bat panged
only two, namely ; tho bill to reduce tbo
number of internal revenue officers, and
the dcDciency appropriation bill. This
body has adopted the conference report
nn tho bill toregulato tho bridges 06 tho
