1 til rsilty Horning, llnrtli 47, IS7O* 4 BATCH OF MBS. The Inquirer of last week copies from the Pittsburg Gaztte an article which attempts to bolster up the Grant ad ministration with a string of falshooods th,:i \v uM have done honu to the baron Muncha :scn himself. First, say the (Jozdte. the adminis tration, "has paid off' eighty-eight millions of dollars of the publicdebt-" We need but ask the reader to com pare the in.-* monthly statement of the d Iff made by ex-Secretary McCulloch with that of .Secretary Boutwelt on March 1. H7O, to prove the other falsi ty of this assertion. Secretary McCul loch always estimated the Pacific Rail road Bonds as part of the public debt, but Mr. Bo it well omits the whole a mount of these bonds from iiis state ment. The sum of these Ionds, for which the United .States Government is responsible, is almost as great a- the amount of redaction of the debt claim ed by the article in the Pittsburg pa per. This is certainly a new way of p. ying old debts, and the plan ought to be copyrighted by the radical Sec retary of the Treasury. Besides Bout- Weil counts as cash the bonds and pa per currency redeemed by *he Gov ernment which are utterly worthless un less re-issued, and they would become again a pari of the public debt. An individual might as well count his own promissory notes, after redemp tion, as so much cash in hand ! W hen the redeemed bonds and the currency in the treasury are eliminated from the cash assets claimed by Mr. Bout well, it is found that instead of decreasing, the public debt has really increased a b'jutfifty I ico mi HI ions since Grant's ac cession to the Presidency. Another assertion in the article re ferral to, namely, that "the adminis tration has largely decreased the pulj lic expenditures," Ac., is proved false by the facts and figures contained in the speech recently made in Congress by Mr. Dawes, one of the leaders of the republican party. He affirmed and proved by the official records that the estimates of Graut's administra tion of the expenses of the government for the next fiscal year are nearly fifty millions greater than the expenditures for the last year of Johnson's adminis tration. That the administration has "advan ced the value of our depreciated cur rency from 1.32 to 1.15," is ridiculous ly false. The administration has had no more to do with the appreciation of the currency than the man in the moon. The increase in the produc tion of cotton during the last year, has operated to retain gold in this coun try, that great staple having taken the place of coin in balancing our accounts with foreign countries. If the Insane hatred of the South which rankled in the hearts of the radical leaders, had not conceived and put in practice a plan of "reconstruction" which took the negroes from the cotton-fields and placed them in the arena of polities, the cotton crops of the last five years would have heeu large enough to turn the balance of trade in favor of the U nited States, and to day, instead of the currency fluctuating from 1.12 to 1.10, it would beat par. So much for what King Cotton, and not the administra tion has done tor the appreciation of the currency. As to the other statements of the ar ticle, they are of a piece with those to which we have alluded. There is but one truthful sentence in the whole thing, that in which it is asserted that the administration has completed the radio il reconstruction of all the South ern State governments on "Republi can" principles. That is certainly in disputaole. At H cost of hundreds of millions of dollar- to the people of the North, "he ignorant, degraded and vi cious negroes of the South have been given control of the State governments in that section; white American citi zens have been disfranchised and made the political -laves of tlie blacks; and a negro preacher who embezzled the funds of his church in Kansas has been elected to lite United States Sen ate. Yes, the Southern State govern in nits have been reconstructed on Ri p ibliean principles. THE democrats oi the New York legislature have smashed the ring and the people of New York city will now be given an honest charter. The o|- pre--iveaud odious commissions inv < - t 1 by radical malice for the govern ment of the great metropolis will lie swept away, and the people will hereafter select their uiuuicipal offi cers. So much for democratic ascen dancy in the New York legislature. The radical majority in New Hamp shire i< about 1,100, a loss n r 2,000 -ince last year, and of about 0 000 on the majority for Grant. The Newbury port ihrafd, referring to the report that black men will suc ceed Dewesce and Whittimore in Con gress, express regret that the commit tee found out those worthies. That's treasonable. TBK Hl'JiniK ACill. At the beginning of every month the people of the United States are rolcmn iy informed by tin* Secretary of the Treasury that the pub'ic debt ha- been decreased by certain amounts duly specified. It would afford us great pleasure to chronicle the fact were it fact aud not falsehood. That a high offi cial should persistently send out to the i public a statement which is a lie on its face, seems almost incredible. Never tic its- such is the shameful fact.— Look for instance, . t Mr. Boutwell'a figures for the month. Lis state ment isas follows: 1 otai debt— Principal aoT later al, to -late, ineiuci:ng coupon 3 due not presented for pay i went 82.651,888,78., 43 Amount in Treasury: Quia.. 102.4M.7!9 97 Currency 10.2-sn 285 M Smxing fund iu Unite!

They amount, with the accrued interest unpaid, to $65,- 094,861 20. Thi- sum added to the gross amount of ttiedebt .is above sta ted, makes an agregate of $2,716,763,- GoO 63. Now, what are the assets claimed by Mr. Boutwetl to be at pre sent in the Treasury? Why, among others, $100,600,283 61 of United States coin interest bonds! That is to say, this amount of the promissory notes of the United States have been redeem ed by the United States, and though just as worthless to the United States us the paper of an individual is to that individual after he has redeemed it and recovered p<-.sessioti of it, this val ueless paper is counted as assets and Mr. Bout well coolly proceeds, to de duet the amount of the value which it once had from the amount of the principal and interest of the public debt 1 To make this perfectly clear to the dullest understanding let us illus trate: An individual draws a promis sory note on which he obtains money. He afterwards lifts the note. Having redeemed the note and recovered pos session of it, it is perfectly valueless to him and he destroys it. In like manner the govervment issues bond-. It obtain- the money on them. After wards it lifts these bonds. But Mr. Boutweli, instead or cancelling of de stroying them puts those redeemed ev idences of government debt in the strong box of the Treasury, and with a felicity of imagina'ion that is truly wonderful, treats them as cash ! It the reader held an ertate charged with a mortgage, would not the owner of the mortgage regard him as a lunatic if he proposed to pay oft the mortgage with hi- own paper formerly held by other parties but lately redeemed by him? Yet tiiis is preei-ely what Boutwel! asks the public to believe be can do and is doing. Theonly bona fide assets in the Treasury are $1(12,4(H),739.97 in coin, as above stated, and this sum alone is to be deducted from the gross amount of the public debt. Hence a true state ment of the debt and the credit* to which government is entitled would be a follows : Total debt—Principal and inter. est 12,716,763.636 63 Asseta in Tremsery 102,460,739 97 Total debt less assets in Treasu ry 2,614,362,916 66 But let us see what was the amount of the debt ou the first of March, 186' J. We copy from the statement of Sere tary M'Cuiloch as printed in the Har risburg Telegraph of March 5,1869; "Debt bearing compound interest, $2,107,854,050; debt bearing currency interest, $71,040,000; matured debt not presented fur payment, $6,422,463 64; debt bearing no interest,s42l,s7B,lßo 50; six per cent, (lawful money) bonds is sued to Pacific railroad companies, $53,937,000; total debt, $2,660,931,694 14.

Amount of debt less cash iu the Treu-ury,52,545,330,904 33." it will be seen ttit fete-notary M'Oul loeh did not count anything but coin arid currency as assets. But he had no right to treat the amount of curren cy in the Treasury as cash, not a whit more than an individual bus to count his own redeemed promissory notes as asset*. Therefore a correct statement of the debt oti the fir-t of March, 1-419, would stand thi}s i Total debt—Principle] and inter est $2 660.031,691 !4 Asset- iuTrea.-ury 95,741.260 72 Total debt leu, iu'jU ia Treasury $2,062,190 433 42 Now v hat do< this prove? Why, that the public debt instead of having been reduced, as claimed the uaen daei.i - Bunt well, has been actually and positively and indisputably aug mented sjijef the first of March. 1869. | Itet ijs cipher: ' Total debt less assets tn Treasu ry.

Even the dex terity of Bout Well fails to make his i digits hide the truth. It is a fact, a s£T)F m mv glaring, stubborn and irresistible fact, that the public debt has increased up wards of Fifty-two niillionsduring the last year, and no man who is not a knave or a fool will attempt to deny it. GOVERNOR STEVENSON, of Ken tucky, has done a very proper thing in refusing to accept the resignation of Golladay, the member of Congress front that State, who is charged with having dabbled in the endetship cor ruption. Gov. Senter, of Tennessee, likewise deserves credit for declining to receive the resignation of Butler, member of Congress from that State, who has been proved guilty of the charge of selling a eadetship. Steven son and Senter are democrats, and gen tlemen of character and education.— On the other hand, Gov. Scott, ofSouth Carolina, aud Gov. Holden, of North Carolina, did not hesitate a moment to accept the resignations of Whittemore and Deweese, members of Congress from their respective States, who were convicted of trafficking in eadetships. These resignations were communicated to and accepted by these Governors by telegraph. Scott, of South Carolina, is a corrupt and contemptible carpet bagger. whilst Holden is a scalawag who has been on all sides of the politi cal questions, "everything by turns and nothing long." The contrast be tween the former and the two latter may not be apparent to radical optics, but to people who are net willfully blind it is quite perceptible. COXGKFAiMOXAI.. WASHINGTON, March 8. The Funding hill was again under discussion in the United States Senate yesterday afternoon and evening. Mr. Bayard, of Delaware, made an elabor ate speech against the bill. Mr. Mor ton introduced a bill to admit the State of Texas to representation in Con gress, on the same conditions as in the case of Virginia. Mr. Harlan, from the Committee on Indian Affairs, re ported a bill for carrying into effect the treaty with the Cherokees. In th House of Representatives Mr. Schenck introduced a resolution instructing the Committee on the District of Colum bia to consider a bill repealing thechar ters of the Cities of Washington and Georgetown. An attempt was made to restore Mr. Golladey, of Kentucky to his rights asa member of the House in consequence of tlie refusal of the Gov ernor of Kentucky, to accept his resig nation, but the Speaker ruled that Mr. Golladay was no longer a member.— The Judiciary Committee were in structed to report some rule to be es tablished by the House in the case of members resigning during the investi gation into thpir official conduct. The Georgia bill was resumed and several speeches were made, but no vote was reached. WASHINGTON, March 9. In the United States Senate the Fun ding lull was again discussed, Mr. Sherman, of Ohio, advocating the pay ment of the interests in certain cities of Europe, and proposing the allow ance of one percent, for the negotia tion. Mr. Morton's Neatraliity bill, forbidding the fitting out of ships with in tlie United States against American colonists claiming independence, was introduced with the approval of the Committee on Foreign Relations. The Georgia bill has been passed by the House and sent to the Senate, But ler had the pleasure of being beaten by Bingham, whose amendment offer ed yesterday was adopted by forty majority. This helps to oust Bullock —the Senate bill retaining him in of fice for many years to come, WASHINGTON, March 10. In the Senate of the United States, yesterday, the petition of a Mr. Hatch, of Connecticut, for the release of his father, who is unjustly confined by the Dominican government, led to some angry denunciations of President Baez and bis partisans. Senator Ferry declared that Mr. Hatch was imprison ed because he possessed certain knowl edge concerning an effort to swindle the United States government in the purchase of that island, Mr. Wil liams, from the Finance Committee, reported against the Joint resolution extending the time for a with rawal of spirit.-, from bonded warehouses.— Mr. Trumbull reported the Georgia hill from the House. Another Cuba sym pathy resolution (said to he inspired by General Queada>) was introduced and laid on the table. The Senate then took up the Funding hill and dis cussed it during the afternoon and eve ning sessions. In the House of Repre sentatives, Mr. Mungen offered a res olution of inquiry into the arbitrary s azures made by Collector Bailey in N. Y. city, but .Mr. Jetjckes, of Rhode Island, oujeel— 1, Mr. Garfield ottV-red a resolution of inquiry into the exj>edi ency of admitting small packages in the mails, which was adopted. The fight on the New York and Washing ton Air Line Railroad bill began with an effort by its patron, Mr. Ingersoll, to rush it through the House. Several Democratic members denounced the hill, Mr. Wood declaring that the House was being asked to give away to a few men a franchise that could be s ild in Wall street for twenty millions of dollars. After a spicy debute, Mr. Ingers >ll's motion fur the previous question was voted down, 67 to 74, and the bill went over. Mr. Stevenson, from the Post-office Committee, repor ted a bill reducing the inileageof mem bers of Congress. WASHINGTON, March 11. , The debate on the Funding hill in the United Slates Senate continued through the afleiitoou and ever.ingses sions of yesterday. A fight was made by the champions of the national banks for the retention of the peculiar privi leges they now enjoy. Mr. Oaaserly, speaking of the grasping spirit mani fested by the banks, declared that the Democrats could desire no better issue than this. The House took up and de bated the bill to reduce the number of officers in the army. General Logan, as chairman of the Military Commit tee, made the leading speech, in which he showed that the bill reduced the number of army officers about 33 per cent., MHI effected a.-aving of nearly $0,000.(100. He stated that as the ar my now stood it was so burdened with officers that there was one for every ten enlisted men. The bill was voted upon by sections, ami finally passed. A proposition to transfer the Indian Bureau to the War Department was lost. WASHINGTON, March 12. Aftev* a protracted debate, the Uni ted Mates senate yesterday passed the Funding bill. The vote was—yeas, 82, nays, 10. ali the Democrats voting in thefiegative. in the Senate, biJls were introduced to promote the securing of efficient seamen for the navy, and to regulate international correspondence by telegraphic lines between the Uni ted States and foreign eoun ries. Mr. McDonald, of Arkansas, offered a reso lution, which was agreed to, calling upon the Commissioner of Inteinal Revenue to furnih certain details of information in regard to the number of spirit distilleries throughout the country ; the names of the parties fur nishing spirit meters; their cost, and the time they were in successful oper ation. The negro Senator presented a remonstrance from the negro mem bers of tiieGeorgia Legislature,against Mr. Bingham's amendment to the Georgia bill. In the House of ,Repre sentatives, t e Tariff bill was discuss ed and Mr. McCarthy, of New York, took the floor on the salt duty. Ihe Deficiency bill called forth a spirited debate, ii; the course of which Messrs. Cox, Beck, and Vorhees gave Mr. Dawt - a ludicrous overhauling for the inconsistency between his House speeches In favor of economy, and his New Hampshire speeches defending Grant's extravagant administration.— Mr. Dawes made a lame attempt to defend himself, but his Democratic in quisitors had the better of him. THE LAftl 9CPJUB or tiik 111 Vr- INODO.V HI KIIEK. Execution of Itolmer itutl HnUenburjf. On Wednesday*last the murderers of the Peighta! family suffered the ex treme penalty of the law at Hunting don. The following particulars of the execution we gather from the Globe:— The day of the execution was ushered in by a bright arid golden sun, and early in the morning the streets were filled by a throng of people, anxiously awaiting the hour when the prisoners would be sent by the last resort of the law into eternity. Many a thought was had f>r the prisoners, and even the boldest hearted must have felt a nervous quiver as lie contemplated the scene that was to be enacted to-day. All tne preparations for the execu tion had been made in due time The scaffold was erected in the rear of the jail, and was twenty-three feet high. The platform around the scaffold was about thirteen feet from the ground, and reached by steps. The trap doors swing to each side, and ad mit of a width when open of two and a half feet. The rope was of the best h tinp. Around the jail wall and a short dis tance from if, there were a number of platforms erjeted to such a height, by private citizens, as to afford a full view of the whole progress of the execu tion. We entered the eel! about 8:30 o'clock and found Buhner lying on his bed •smoking a cigar and reading a Ger man Bible, as unconcerned as a man well could be. Bodenburg was lean ing against his cell door, looking very much depressed in spirits and occa sionally pacing his cell in a very un easy manner. At 0 o'clock the cell doors were closed to all but the minis ters and spiritual advisers. Bohner was up to a late hour last nignt, laughing and talking to those in the ceil, and smoking cigars given him by those present. Bodenburg was restless and uneasy, walking his cell and occasionally consulting his spirit ual advisers. He did not sleep any, but Bohner laid down at one o'clock and slept about two hours. Both ate a hearty breakfast this morning, THE EXECUTION*. Preparatory to bringing the prison ers from the cell, their hobbles and manaeies were removed, at a quarter past-twelve, and their arms pinioned. At twenty-live minutes after twelve they were brought from the cell. The prisoners were taken on to thescalTold, having to go up a liighl of llfteen steps. Neither of them showed any emotion of fear, and remained silent while the sheriff bound their feet. On the scaffold near the prisoners were Sheriff N'eely, Revs. Steekel, Sykes, an 1 Jas. C. Clarke, and Deputies Fouse and Weaver. When their feet had been bound, Rev. J. Sykes, of Martinsburg, Blair county, delivered a short prayer in German. Bodenburg then produced and read in German, in a clear and distinct tone, a paper in which he appealed to Bohn er to tell the truth about the murder and exculpate him (Buhner) from any participation in the killing. (Boden burg had previously made a confession in which he charged Bohner with hav ing shot all three of the victims.] At the conclusion of the reading Buhner replied to Bodenburg: "We have both been in. We are both guil ty of death." Bodeahnrg replied i Shame on you; shame on you, you know that I killed none." Rev. Jas. C, Clarke, of this place, then delivered .. short prayer, beseech ing Heaven to have mercy on the souls of the criminals, The rope was attached by the Slier iff to the necks of the prisoners at quar ter of | o'clock. The ministers then bade them each farewell, after which Ro.lenburg offered up the following prayer: "O, Lord Jesus, forgive my and take my poor soul into ihy kingdom. Amen, amen, amen." As soon as his prayer was concluded the Sheriff covered their heads with ihe black muslin caps, and bade them farewell. While they were talking, the Sheriff waved his hand to Deputy Foase, who pulled the rope attached to the prop under the trap doors, and both the doomed men were launched into eternity. They made a few convulsions, but these were not very perceptible The opinion was that both died of strangulation. Bo lenburg died in 11 minutes, and Bolint r in 15 minutes. Their bodies were taken down after hanging 25 minutes, and placed in the coffins, and examined by the jury. The rope had done its work as speedily as it could be done—the image of death was stamped upon the countenance of each, and where the rope was attached was a blue mark. Thus has ended one of the most dreadful punishments upon two men, whose deed of unparalleled butchery of the Peightal family has met with but few equals in the annals of crime. Ho mer, contrary to the expectations of many, was pertectly docile, from the time of bringing him from the cell until the drop fell. He took no advice from the spiritual advisers, whatever, preferring to rely on his own communings, and for a few days past he had been a constant reader of his Bible, and on the scaffold was deeply affected Albert, on the other hand, has listened attentively to the counsel of Mr. Steckel, and on Mon day last took sacrament in his cell. THE C'KOWD. The crowd in town to witness theex ecution was immense, and would prob ably reach 6000, and they availed them selves of every available position on the hill to obtain a view of the culprits. Some of the trees in thecemetery were filled with spectators; the impromptu scaffolds around the jail and in the vi cinity were jammed, and it was with difficulty that some over-anxious ones could be kept off ttie walls. The crowd in the jail yard was also great, the number probably reaching 400. Fortu uately for those who witnessed the exe cution. there was no mismanagement and therefore no failure. Everything was done expeditiously and satisfactori ly; but we think there could be but one exclamation in the breast of every spectator when the two unfortuuate men dangled mid earth and Heaven, and that is, "may I never look upon the like ag tin !'£ STRENGTH OF THE MASONICOITDTR. —The strength of the masonic order in the United States, as set forth in the following statement, is believed to be as nearly correct as can be obtained from the most authentic sources : Ala bama, 10,123; Arkansas,7,676; British Colorado, 482; Connecticut, 12,784; Delawar?, 722; District of Columbia, TB3; Florida, 1,303; Georgia, 13,167; Idaho, 220; Illinois, 30,229; Indiana, 21,205; lowa, 11,552; Kansas, 2.645; Kentucky, 18,929; Louisann, 6,099; Maine, 14,120; Maryland, 4,791 ; Mas sachusetts, 28,366; Michigan, 18,016; Minnesota, 5,800; Mississippi, 12,308; Missouri, 14,832; Montana, 355; Ne braska, 986; Nevada. 951, New Bruns wick. 1,312; New Hampshire, 6,032; New Jersey, 7,736 ; New York, 74,076; North.Carolina, 11,184; Nova Scotia, 889; Ohio, 20,925; Oregon, 2,203; Pennsylvania, 29,840; Rhode Island, 4,253; South Carolina (estimated), 14,- 000; Tennessee, 16,960; Texas, 10,519, Vermont, 7,024; Virginia, 8,000; Washington, 348; West Virginia, 1,- 590; Wisconsin, 7,713; Total, 468,455.

A census of the .State of South Caro lina taken in 1869 has just been made public, from which it appears that the total population is now 700,022 —an in crease of but 1,314 over what it was in 1860. There are, as shown by thiscen sus,.s,Bßo less whiteinalesofall ages now in the State than there were in 1860, and 11,812 less negro males; while an Increase of 9,806 white and 9,460 negro females appears.

A few days ago' Senator Wilson, I in conversation with Judge Thurman, remarked by the way of a pleasant joke, that as there was no vacant seats on the republican side of the chain bey, they had concluded to give Revels a desk next to tiim (Thurman). Wilson thought the Judge would enter a afrit ous protest, hut hedidn't. He jumped at once to the practical view of the matter, and replied 5 *'All right; put him next to me, and I will have him voting with the demo crats on every question that comes up, in less thaua week.' 1 Wilaon didn't laugh any more, and Revels was not seated next to Thur man.

Schenck's Seaweed Tonic is a gentle stimulant and alterative, and the Alkali in the SeiweeJ, which this preparation is made of, assists the stomach to throw out the gastric juice to dissolve the food with the Pulmonic Syrup, and it is made into good blood without fermentation or souring in the stoinach. The great reason why physicians do not cure ! consumption is, they try to do too much ; they j give medicine to stop the cough, to stop chills, to I stop night sweats, hectic fever, and by so doing ! they derange the whole digestive powers, locking op the secre'ious, and eventually the patient sinks end dies. Dr. schenefc, in his treatment, does not try to stop H cough, night sweats, chills, or lever. Re move the cause, and they will all stop of their own acoord. No one can be cured of Consump tion, Liver Complaint, Dyspepsia, Cataarh, Can ker. Ulcerated Throat, unless the liver and stom ach are male healthy. If a person has Consumption, ofoourse the lungs in some way are diseased, either tubercles, ab scesses, bronchia'irritation, pleura adhesion, or the lungs are a mass of inflammation and fast de caying. In auch cases what must he doii6 ! It is not only the lungs that are wasting, but it is the whole body. The stomach and liver have lost their power to make blood out of food. Now the only chance is to tako Schenck's three medicines, j which will bring up a lone to the stomach, the patient will bogin to want food, it will digest easi ly and make good blood then :he patieut begins to gain in flesh, and as soon as the body begins to grow, the lungs commence to hoal up, and the pa tient gets fleshy an! well. This is the only way to cure eonsurap'ion. When there is no long disease, and only Liver Complaint and Dyspepsia, Schenck's Seaweed Tonio aud Mandrake Pills are sufficient without the Pulmonic Syrup. Take the Mandrake Pills freely in all hillious ootnplaints. as they are pcr footly harmless Dr. Schenek . who has enjoy d uninterrupted health for many years past, and now weighs 225 pounds, was wasted away to a mere skeleton, in the very last stage of Pulmonary Consumption, his physicians having pronounced his oaso hope less and abandoned him to his fate He was cured by the aforesaid medicines, and since his recovery many thousands similarly afflicted bavo use 1 Dr. Schenck's pi operations with thu same remarkable success Full directions accompanying each, make it not absolutely necessary to personally see Dr Schenck, unless the patients wish their lungs examined , and for this purp >se he is professional ly at bis Principal Office, Philadelphia, every Saturijay, where all let ers fur adrioe must be ad dressed. lie is also professionally at No. 52 Bond Street, New York, every other Tuesday, and at No. 25 Uauover Street.
