THE NEW YEAR.
The old year with all its associa
tions, all its incidents, all its joys, all
its sorrows, all its changes, has gone
and is known no more, same as a
cycle in the history of the past, and
the new year with all it3 anticipa
tions, all its responsibilities and its
duties, has burst upon us as the morn
when awaketh. We stand upon the
brink of the one and look back upon
its struggles and toils, and gaze wist
fully into the mazy future of the
other with a dreadful anticipation of
the burdens it brings, buoyed by
hope yet hesitating to again encoun
ter the rough passes where the feet
well nigh slipped, lest the firm nerve
may falter and the strong arm yield
and life be wasted.
The first of the year perhaps
brings commingled emotions to each
one of us. We realize that another
measure of the woof of life has been
woven, and when we examine its
texture there are too many evidences
of bad workmanship for us to con
template the work with entire com
placency. There are points where
duty has been neglected, where pas
sion has mastered reason, where
opportunities have been wasted, and
where the milk of humanity has
flowed sparingly to the relief of Euff
ering or for the administration of
that charity which seeketh not its
own but another's weal. Such feel
ings are generally associated with
deprecations of our faults and deter
minations to improve tho future, and
each individual " turns down a new
leaf" on the 1st of January and sets
out upon the new year ladened with
good resolutions, that are too often
cast aside during the first month of
the journey. Tho man determines to"
bo a better moU and a bettor Ulaou, 1
and perhaps for a short while his
worthy course is Buch as to elicit ad
miring landations from his associates,
but in most of cases it amounts to a
delusion, and Fobruary finds that
the leaf turned down was but a page
of the same book passed over during
the preceding year. In fact so uni
versal is the intention to reform on
the first of the year, that it has be
come a matter of will authenticated
statistics that there is less liquor and
tobacco used and more economy prac
ticed during the first two weeks in
January, than any other period of
the same length in the year.
The year 1875, in certain aspects,
does not commence its course under
brilliant auspices. The political skies
may have brighter hues than those
that marked the ushering in of the
last year, but upon the dawn hangs
a cloud that effects society for the time
more deeply than abstract questions
as to forms of government. Finance
and commerce, the basis of our social
system, are not in such a state as
promise great prosperity for the com
ing year. There is a want of mutual
confidence and an unhealthinoss in
trade that betokens a close and un
stable condition of affairs, and en
joins the utmost prudence and sa
gacity in the conduct of business.
It is well then to stop a moment
and take a calm survey of the past,
and speculate upon future prospects,
before entering into the business of
another year. Think of the pecu
liar circumstances that surround the
close of the old and the opening of
the new year and act with discretion
THE LIBRARY OF CONGRESS.
The annual report of the Librarian
of Congress exhibits the fact that
12,407 volumes havo been added to
the collection during the year closing
December 1st. The aggregate num
- a . 1 1
ber of books now in tne iiDrary is
258,752 volumes, besides about 50,
000 pamphlets. In the copy-right
department there have been 15,352
entries made during the year, and
the librarian has paid into the
Treasury the sum of $13,404 30 as
the receipts from copyright fees
rr i J .i
a ins exueeus xne entries oi tne year
preceding by about ton per cent.
Theflibrarian reports the accessions
to the library as unusually valuable,
including an almost complete set of
the County Histories of England,
purchased in London, and very im
portant, as throwing light upon the
history and genealogy of thousands
In a recent speech in Congress I.
F. Butler, hotter known as tho Beast,
took occasion to denouuee the Press
of the country in a most scurrilous
style. lie laughed to scorn the timid
and over-conscienliou3 Congressmen,
who havo allowed the denunciations
of the Press to draw from their
pockets their ill gotten gain and empty
it again into tho government treas
ury. But this very argument upon
tho subject showed the folly of his
opinions. It illustrated tho fact that
there v, as indeed a power in the in
strument that could cause avaricious
Congressmen to disgorge, and that
Butler himself felt tho force of it.
In fact his very bitterness belied
his logic. He had not forgotten how
odious his name had been renderod
in American history through the in
strumentality of tho public press, nor
what a mighty engine it was in
thwarting his ambitious political
schemes last summer. It is natural
enough for this man, whose very ex
pression indicates the sensuality of
his disposition and whoso public acts
havo show n his heart to bo the Lome
of tho Devil, to hate the means by
which his infamy has been rendered
notorious, but for him to affect to
despise its influence while burning
under its blows is simply redicu
lous. People whose private characters
and public conduct havo been above
reproach, and who have never felt,
but seen, the power exerted by tho
Press of tho United States, are doubt
less better and more impartial judges
of its efficiency, than those whoso pub
lic histories have been so notorious
ly infamous aa to bring upon them
the most severe animadversions of
the subjects whose merits they are to
try. Rev. Dr. Stone of San Francis
co, gives credit to tho press for ex
citing a healthful and beneficial in
fluence in public and privato affairs.
He says :
"Tho newspaper is more feared to
day in Congressional halls and the
high places of corruption and villainy
than laws and courts, the stings of
conscience and the thunders of Divino
wrath. God is a great way off, and
the judgment waits ; but tho ubiquiU
ous reporter thrusts his sharp gaze
into all overt and hidden schemes, an
unerring detective. The pestilent
spy will tell all ho seeB, tell it on the
housetops, print for a nation of read
ers. Good ! Give us more of this !
ljong live the reporter I .Let cveryn
nieco of cainful fraud understand he
is ' shadowed ' at each step by this
unbeught espionage, and though he
may not be converted, ha will bo re
strained." But while the strictures of the
Honorable (heaven save the mark !)
Congressmen are refuted by their
own assertions, it is doubtless true
that the Press of the country has
rendered itself liable, by the position
it has taken in regard to that portion
of tho Salary bill by which the sys
tem of free exchanges wa3 discontin
ued. It has generally clamored as
loudly at the act that imposed a small
additional expense upon it as that by
which the Congressmen's depleted
pockets wore filled out of tho govern
mental treasury. This has indeed
been a shame to us, and has done
much to counteract tho utterings
against the Back Pay Steal. That
paper had better pie its typo and
close its doors, whose impecuniosity
renders its sentiments so cheap. If
tho Press of the country would exer
cise a fearless and manly criticism
without licentiousness, and keep
within its proper sphere, it would
prove a power that would rid tho
Congressional halls of all such ver
min as Butler, the Beast.
The New York Journal of Commerce,
which ia the boat financial authority
in the country, expresses itself thus
rationally and forcibly with respect to
the monetary situation :
A return to specie payment would
place all tho financial interests of the
country upon a better footing, but we
need not speak of this, as no one is
in favor of it. The most clamorous
for specie payments, thoretically, even
among our most substantitl citizens,
will not suffer a moment from the
spasm that threatens to result in such
a consummotion, but the instant they
feel it will cry out for relief on the
side that leads further and furthor
The next best measure would ho a
weekly central par redemption for
national bank notes, but this could
only be done under national authority
and by government hands. The
only restriction which we consider
practicable at present is the prohibi
tion of interest on deposits and the
repeal of the usury laws. The first
would prevent in a great measure the
use of deposits as loans to borrowers
who cannot return them on demand,
and the last would draw from all
parts of the world a capital that
would take the place of such loans
and carry forward tho enterprises
now languishing for want of funds.

SCENES AT WASHINGTON.
When we corftp.ire the scenes
that arc constantly rccuring in our
national capital with those ofa
half century ago, the r stupidity in
high places, the corruption and
fraud that seem to mark nearly
every .branch. of the . government
and the apparently utter abandon
ment of piinciple and correct no
tions of honor, we blush for. the
baseness of -our generation . and
sigh for the pure and siffltle days
of the past. It is true, a9 Cicero
observes in his T)c Seiiectiitej anjj
in fact which has been so - often Te
marked that it ha3 become an apho-v
risni, that we are prone to venerate
the ancients and to depreciate our
time, esteeming it a great degener
acy from the century preceding "it.
But we think an analysis of prevail
ing customs of officials of this age;
and a comparison of their conduct
with that of politicians of fifty years
ao, will show that there is reality
O 7 w
in the assertion that official corrup
tion i salarmingly prevalent. Grant
as President, Williams as Chief
Justice and Butler & Co., ruling
spirits in Congress, bear a pitiable
contrast to the times when such
luminaries as the South Carolina
Galaxy shown in our national leg
islative halls, when the ermine was
upon the person of the great Mais
shal and when Jefferson and Adams
sat in the chair of the chief execuv
The alleged fraud of Gen. How
ard, in the Freedmen's Bureau, is
a fit type of the venality of the
times. Here is a man, esteemed at
the North for his upright religions
character, who sinks to the level of
a common swindler and barters Ins
honor for sold. Of Howard's com
plicity in tho fraud there seem$ to
be but little doubt, a prominent
army officer, who his investigated
his accounts, having expressed the
opinion that the real extent pf his
criminally would become more evi
dent and incontrovertible as the
Civil Service reform has become
anothor libelous burlesque at Wash
ington. The only qualification to
office is strong partisanship and
old fashioned economy in the va
rious departments is unknown.,,' As
uu matHce ot the latter vec citeSfi
case- Unc ot the secretaries, Sua
ious to do his part towards the cur
tailment of the expenditures of his
department, gave orders not to
have the usual number of visiting
cards piinted for New Year's and
charged to the " stationarv ac
count." Ho then told his chief
clerk to have six packs of blank
visiting cards purchased and to
have a clerk, who writes a hand-!
some hand, write on each, " The
Secretary of," with the remainder
of his official title. This is " re
trenchment and reform. ,-
The recent debates in Congress
over the Back Pay, and scurrilous
abuses of members for each other,
at a time too when the nation is
groaning under a financial panic and
the people are looking to Congress
for relief, arc a commentary, that
needs no elaboration, upon the poli
tics of the ago. - -
Thus we might go on and men
tion other cases which tend to show
how universal arc ; the ignorance
and venalitv of officers in high
places, but they are too well known
to require repetition.
When the student of history in
after years turns to the -page we
are now writing, he may1 perhaps
pronounce it the golden age, not
surely because of the grcatnes3 of its
sons or the purity ofits languageut
from the "deity who rules the period.

Harger set up a counter claim of
$160. for " puffing'the La Belle
House. Judgment was rendered for
the plaintiff, and Mr. Harger
appealed to a jury. The case excited
much interest, Harger being well
Vkedj and; havingra-solemn, :arnest
manner of making' very witty re
marks. He testified that Fay would
say to him; fHargerj I've got a nice
"dinnertO-day ; eome in." "No, I

would prevail " on him to stay, and.
after dinner theu following colloquy:

"Very well, remember : this in your

told a great many lies editorially
worth more than a thousand dollars.
He would never have presented a bill
