REFORM! REFORM I
Our radical exchanges teem with
virtuous promises ol reform ; That is
a catch word, and should read with a
stress on the first syllabic, he form to
plunder again. It has been reform
for the past six years, and the grab
was bigger each time. Judging by
the past if the radicals have another
reform they will leave nothing behind
but the 'savor of their virtuous deeds.'
A shepherd can afford to lay claims to
a lamb without suspicion ; but when a
wolf prowls around, his reputation
stands against him. Reform by study
ing and practising the decalogue; then
raise whatever cry you will, it may
excite some attention. Until then do
not insult the public ear with the word
THE BANK OF THE STA TE.
"We have before us the cat that has
so long been hid in the meal tub; the
explanation of the sudden, and to many
of us expected chaugc of front in the
"Moses" trial, and we arc the more
confirmed (if that be possible)thntfrom
Governor to henchman, all through,
the principle of party rules everything
even justice trickles out of the party
spiggot, as party influence chooses to
dispense it. The man is a fool who
admits any influence, that conflicts
with, or I iasses justice; tho man is a
knave that uses any such influence, to
defeat justice, in strengthening vice.
How far favor, fear, or other consider
ation affected the Ccurt in the late
Moses farce, may find some explana
tion in the report submitted by the
committee (Messrs. Miles, Jones, Iia
good and Bratton) on behalf of the
taxpayers convention. It was evident
that Moses base as he is, was being
used to pull nuts out of the party fire,
and that his degraded position was a
step stone to some adventurer who if
he did not aid to trip him, is not a whit
more virtuous than the cicature be
calls governor, and whom be fawns
upon only to stab. Moses was guilty
of larceny, as be is guilty of a thousand
crimes that degrade his office, yet the
8amo party lash that herded bis con
stituents to make him a Governor is
cracking over the bead of the Court
which is the creature of the party.
Moses and his constituency, the assem
bly and the Courts, are all a ring, and
the throne above the conclave is "the
party." "The party" is corruption.
Why should the Court contrive to keep
Moses from the meshes of law? Is it
compatible with the purity of its de
portment? Why should it protect
Moses from a trial ? It would seem to
any candid mind that ho should court
an investigation of the charges, if as
stated in his late disclaimer be is the
"meek Moses." It is very evident that
there were outside considerations, that
smothered justice, and the casual rea
der may discover them in the loose,
nay criminal conduct of the Judge
who manipulated for the benefit of
Moses the party and others the assets
of the Bank of the State. So low have
tho affairs of public lifo sunk in the
abyss of debauched morals, that even
a judge in the discbarge of duty can
be blackmailed, and silenced. Cham
berlain writes -"I confess that I am
astonished Lhat .lodge Graham should
have permitted the loans made, after
spending five years in collecting the
assets of this bank, and just upon the
eve of a final decree, these assets at e
being scattered here and there upon
securities not a whit better than those
which were the cause of su much loss
heretofore to the bank" * * *
"If this thing is continued I wash tny
hands of it, and I now protest'against
it as wholly unwarranted in law and
good policy. The State is unquestion
ably liable for all debts of the bank
not piiid by .these asset-1, and I cannot
sit by and see them scattered in this
most ruinous manner." A people
crushed to earth with tnxes, and cursed
with ignorance, are again to pay for
tho looseness of a parly court; Vet so
ii is, and who expected boiler?

A meeting was called at 12 o'clock
to-day for the purposo of levying a
School Tax for this township. A mo
tion was made that Mr. H. Kiggs should
act as chairman and Mr W; K. Crook
secretavy. Mr. Samuel Dibble asked
for information, "how many Public
Schools are iu this Township." Mr.
T. C. Andrews made a report of nine,
three white and six colored,the scholars
of which numbered about 1200. Mr.
Andrews made statements showing how
this Township stood in finance. A
motion was then made that a committee
of three ba appointed to find out what
amount would be requiied to carry on
tho schools for tnc coming year; the
motion was put before tho house and
lost. After considerable debate a mo
tion was made ibat the tax of 1] mills
bo levied for the purpose of carrying
on the Public Schools of this township,
one mill to be appropriated for school
purposes and the half mill to pay the
past indebtedness. Mr. Sam'l Dibble's
statements from one of the Trustees
showed that 11 mill would be sufficient;
his remarks on the subject were very
appropriate, however the vote of tax
of 11 mills was lost, and the amount
of 2 mills was substituted in its stead,
H inills to be appropriated for this
year's school purposes and 1 mill for
the past indebtedness. The tax of 2
mills was therefore adopted, and tho
meeting ajournod, but could not get
home on account of a bail storm which
came up. Judge T. C. Andrews thon
took the chair and turned the meeting
into one for public speaking. Mr. S.
Dibble was then called on for a speech,
he first begged to be excused; but after
awhile reflected, and in bis usual forci
ble and graceful style made a few re
marks. Mr. "Joe. Lark ins" was then
nominated for Congress, and about
that time I left and went home about
