Politics and Civil Service, NEW YORK CUSTOM HOUSE FRAUDS COMING OUT—REMARKABLE TESTI MONY BY HON. A. S. HEWITT ANU OTHERS New York, May 17.—Hon. Abram S. Hewitt gave some remarkable testimony before the custom-house commission to day. He stated that in 1870 or 1871 he was appointed merchant appraiser to as sist the appraiser iu examining 07 casesof steel. The law allowed the merchant appraiser $0 a case for every case exam ined. When witness presented his cer tificate for 09 cases to Mr. Lydecker the latter said he was only entitled to $35 instead of $285. aud refused to give him more than $35. Mr. Hewitt said the merchant had to deposit $10 for each case examined, aud asked if that money was put in the treasury? Lydecker told him it was none of his business. To other question bearing on the same point Lvdecker re turned the same onswer. Mr. Hewitt went to see Mr. UlerisU but was met by Lite same answers as those Lydecker gave Mr. Hewitt then saw some ol the mer chants and I hey said they never got back a cent of their money. When asked why they did not demand it they replied that if they did so Diese persons would make things unpleasant for them, and they might just as well retire from business at once. The commission will re-examine Lydecker on merchant appraisers' fees in a few. days. Col. G. E. Hall testified that political influence has demoralized custom-house efficiency. Incompetent and illiterate persons are put into positions and kept there by political influence, and fitness or qualifications are not necessery. No merchant would hire such men for clerks. A. H. Adams, of Troy, N. Y., said he was a candidate for a position in the cus tom house in 1872, and was examined by the civil service board of examiners, but not appointed. He was rated ac 70 to 90 per cent, in history, geography and arith metic, but at on ly 40 per cent, in general aptitude. This, he afterwards learned meant political influence, and candi dates rating high therein were all ap pointed. Assistant Appraiser Gilbert testified to the efficiency of examiners in his de partment. NOT TO BE LOST SIGHT OF. The question of morality or simple honesty raised by the recent exposure of the traffic called "ticket-scalping," ought not to be lost eight of. We are willing to concede that there may be a trade in railroad tickets carried on within the precepts of honesty, but it is certain that the evidence of wholesale aud extensive frauds is so conclusive as to cast the whole business under suspicion. It is said that in some localities the scalpers have dies aud stamps, aud that they manufacture and folge the tickets, aud are thus able to undersell the railroads. This is quite as bad as counterfeiting money or forging a draft. But even this is not the worst phase of it. They are often not merely dishonest themselves, but the cause of dishonesty in others. They employ secret agents to seduce the conductors aud train agents into selling the tickets taken up on the train, so that the scalpers may sell them over again. Conductors who had hitherto borne un blemished reputations have yielded to the temptations for theft artfully prepar ed for them by tbe secret agents ot the ticket scalpels. Every man who deals with the scalpers runs the risk of help ing on this infamous complication of swindling. When he buys a ticket from a scalper at a price considerably below that demanded bv the railroad, tbe prob ability is that lie Is buying stolen proper ty and becoming a receiver of stolen goods. No mau of sufficient honesty to be trustworthy iu ordinary business af fairs would consent to place himself iu such a position. Nor can any man of business now plead ignorance of the na ture of this nefarious traffic. It has been so fully exposed and forced upon his at tention that hereafter he who buys a ticket from a scalper aids aud abets a traffic which uas been shown to be ini quitous in most of its operations.— Bal timore Gazette. Another wonder has been discovered in California. The water of Deep Spring Valley Lake is charged with borax, and ducks, which at certain seasons visit the lake iu great numbers, become so loaded with crystallizations as to he unable to fly, and fall an easy prey to the Indians, who pick them from the water by the baud. There is a mule now used on a whim on a mine in Humboldt county, Nev., that was used as a breastwork at the bat tle of New Orleans, was owned and,rid den bv Grant iu California through the war of the rebellion, was blown up in a liitro-glycenne explosion while assisting iu tbe construction of the Central Pacific railroad, was in St. Louis when the Southern hotel was burned, and is a pretty good mule yat. if went all BLUE AND GRAY . It would be Impossible to forget civil war. Indeed we are not sure_ it is desirable to blot out of memory the noble sacrifice, devotion to principle.aud bravery in the field which characterized both armies and made the world ring with the praises of the American l T hese recollectious come down to common country as an inheritance of valor and manhood to be remembered above the hatred and prejudices which provoked the conflict. Our country is . more uuited. Every state is free. The voice of tha-paopiteirfor «concilia tion. The best element of the North is gs earnest and as anxious for the full measure of brotherly love as the best ele ment Of the South. The President's humane and constitutional southern policy ha> accelerated the bindiDg toge ther of the country in a bond/if unity and harmony. Sincere patnöts of every section, forgetting section and thinking only of county, have given their heart} support to every step which looked to the era of complete conciliation. It was a generous and a p&ftrtotic inspiration which led the southern people to strew flowers on the graves of the dead of the war, without stopping to ask whether they wore the blue or tne gray. Southern orators have paid a kindly tribute alike, aud where southern soldiers have tilled northern graves there have beeu hands to decorate their graves too. Ii •was in keeping with such sentiments that certaih members of the Grand Army of the Republiçin this city proposed to di op a floral tribute on the graves of the federates who sleep at Bpodon park. They printed their views forcibly, but the patriotic element was overpowered by a few disappointed ofheeseekers and their following. One gentleman wanted "treason made odious, and another had views, which he took^thisoccasion to ex press, on the "De Kalb, Hamburg aud Louisiana massacres." The opportunity seems to have been seized upon by a few soreheads to let the President know have in their litta resentment thev have arms. our one to all what o heads, l in their little hearts in the matter of hh southern that mem ipinions they and what re policy. We sincerely regvfct hers of the Grand Army of the Republicshould harborsuch uncharitable feelings toward the dead; still more do we regret that there werç any whp en deavored to drive u partisan trade owe.' the ashes of the men who have lor» since passed away. We hope to see no such action on the part of the Confeder ate society; the thing is too small to be resented.— Balt. Gazette. WHAT THEY CALL CIVIL SER VICE REFORM. Our Washington despatches give a curious insight into the methods of ciyil service reform as it is understood in the Treasury Department; Ex-Gov. Carpen ter, of Iowa, is to rasten the office ot Second Comptroller of the Treasury, iu order that Mr. Tabor, the Third Auditoi —also from Iowa—who has been eigh teen years in the service, should not be compelled to make way for a representa tive from tbe Pacific coast, whom, it ap pears, tbe Cabinet has dec id ed should find a place in the department. Our correspondent justly considers such disinterestedness as "quite refresh ing in these days of office-hunting," though the circumstances which call (hr it are anything hut refreshing to the peo ple who are looking for certain honest and earnest efforts in the direction ol civil service reform. For be it noted, it was Mr. Tabor, presumably a most capa ble and experienced officer, who was se lected from among men whose terms of office were much shorter, to reduce the representation of Iowa in the Treasury Department, and to give the Pacific coast the head of a bureau to which it is sup posed to be entitled. It would be difficult to imagine any thing better calculated than this transac tion to make the civil service policy oi the Administration ridiculous. If Mr Tabor was an able and honest public servant, he ought not to have been asked to vacate his office ; if Mr. Carpenter could be more readily spared, as may be interred from his brief term of service, be ought to have been, in the first in stance, the selected victim from Iowa, even granting the very preposterous prin ciple that the domicile of a public ser vant has anything whatever to do with bis tenure of office.— N. Y. Times. Third Term Hints —Grant Revived— Before his departure for Europe from Philadelphia on Thursday a banquet was given to Gen. Grant on the steamer Twi light, at which were present ex-Secretar ies Borie, Robeson, Fish and Chandler, Gen. Sherman, ex-Senator Simon Came ron, and others. Ex-Senator Cameron, amongst others, was toasted, and in re turn made a speech highly eulogistic of the ex-President. He predicted that Gen. Grant would return to this country with more people ready to do him honor than ever betöre, and suggested that "he may yet be asked to again take iu his hands the helm of this government when the ship of State is going to destruction." [Cameron don't seem to know the differ ence between a sword aud a ship.] Fol lowing this was a declaration from ex Secretary of the Interior, Chandler, that "whatever criticism Gen. Grant may re ceive now, full justice will be done to him three years hence." The old "blood letting" "whisky swill" exalted Grant above Washington. Gen. Sherman also gushed, aud in a glowing eulogiuui upon the achievements of Gen. Grant, closed by saying; want 1 am sure that you have only to mention it, for there are thousands, yes millions, who would be glad to fulfill The wish is doubtless falli If there is anything you your wish, èr to the thought with these speakers, but the people would scarcely be induced to seriously consider a proposition look ing to conferring a third term upon Gen. Grant or anvbody else. W hen they even think of such a thing the end has surely come. Juan Salazar, a Spaniard, and Henry Sanders, a negro, had a discussion iu Sai Jose, Cal., as to whether liiere was auj difference in ihe blood of whites aud ne groes. They agreed to decide the ques tion by examination, and with a razu. they slightly gashed their arms, thu getting the two kinds of blood to look at No far they were amiable ; but whet Salazar said that he could plainly see ; difference, Sanders got angry and made i. fatal attack on him with the razor. From the Baltimore w ua. Military Ideas.— In the account of the late reception of the President at New York, Gen. Sherman, in reply toast to "The Army and Navy" is repor ted as having indulged remarks to the effect that, "without an army the American people would be a mob—that a government cannot subsist without an army, and a good one too." See. Such remarks may be true of the gov ernment of the Qli\ Wforld, but, applied to this country, it is)» preposterous that one may be permitted to bonder if Gtin. Sherman, in the aaMUtnpttoa of his sanity, made suoh utterances. Can it be po si de that tliç .Commander-in-chief of t ie Uuited St ides artny, eortfrstrhg of 2B',nOO fcsed, an teilt! and which might be ail vantageousJy reduced to 10,000 men, can ,tand, up and. proclaim that a govern ment like ohrs cannot subsist without an army, such a ode 'at leaet as he deni res, aud that unless we hare it the forty mil lions of citizens of the United States are "a mob?" If these are the ideas held by onr army officers and taught at West Point, tbe sooner those aspiring souls are brought to tbeir senses the better. If Gen. Sherman will read the history of Ills country he will discover that the sys tem of the United States bases tbe de fense of the country substantially on tbe militia of the different States, and on volunteer armies raised as occasion demands. It is by Them that all onr g wars have been mainly fought, and the standing military force haiDeen chiefly employed in preserving order among the Indian tribes of the West, and, when ne cessary, defending the settlements. Now that the most of these tribes are surren dering to the authority of tbe govern ment we need less of a standing army perhaps than ever: bat the military school at West Point, garrisons for our forte, and a frontier guard must still be inaintaiued. Yet the commander-in-chief of a handful of regulars, who could not keep possession of a single large city the United States if the popalation were disposed to dispossess them, has the IV surance to say that, unless the govern ment were supported by an army, the American people "are a mob!" Uaa this man really suppose that it is only because the government ot the United States ha* army that the people of this country are prevented from relapsing into politi cal and social chaos? If he does, and if such are the opinions of his military as. .oclates.no better proof could be gi of the hopelessness of endeavoring imbne men of that vocation with an ap preciation of civil government. There are, however, bright exceptions to this class in our army. Gen. Sherman ought to know that tbe American people, even in achieving their liberties, relied upon armies raised for the occasion, and over those who had standing armies;that they have always relied upon a free militia for their support iu war; that they are accus tomed to self-government; and that, It they ever should become "a mob," it is likely to be more iu iudignatiqn excited b.v tbe idea of standing armies,' than any thing else. to a rent of aa veil to Under existing circumstances, the Eastern .Stale of jjquatania (consisting of tbe Principalities of Wailacbia and Mol davia, close to the Russian frontier) has in a manner been compelled to permit the Czar's troops to pass through it in all di rections, and to provide for them subsist ence on cash payment for the same. It is stated, too, that Roumanla will con tribute soldiers to tbe crusade against the vloslems, and that the Czar has promised hat, at the settlement of affairs after the war closes, It shall be admitted as an in dependent kingkom Into the family ol European sovereigns. Considering that the whole area of Koumania (45,042 -quare miles) is smaller than that of Pennsylvania, there will not be much of a kingdom at the best, but tbe great river Danube runs through it. The whole population is under five millions, the yearly revenue amounts to about $19, 000,000, the national debt to $110,000,000 and its regular army, infantry aud caval ry, is about 25,000. There is a militia, also numerous, considering the limited population of the country. The sovereign elected in May, 1800, was Prince Carl, of the Hohenzollern stock, then 27 years old, aud only a lieutenant in a Prussian flos irneut. The dragoon regi podar," or Lord, who bad been elected a few years before, was compelled, for his harsh rule, to abdicate, and the represen tatives of tbe people, assembling at Bucharest, proceeded to a new election. The vacant headship was offered to vari ous persons—among others to princes of Eogland and of Belgium—but non-ac ceptance, however graciously worded,was tbe order of the day. At last the Prussian Prince somehow was mentioned, and he was elected with scarcely an expectation that he would accept, but, only too glad to have the chance, he devoted ten min utes to packing up his carpel-bag, dashed' oil' by the next drain for Bucharest,where he arrived within forty-eight hours, wqs accepted by Boumania, recognized by Turkey, and lias reigned ever siuce very acceptably as rulers go. He is tbe ffrsi "man with a carpet-bag" who rose at one bound from a military subaltern's homely quarters to a throne, aud, if the (Jzar shall add Bulgaria to his realm by-aud-by ne will then be a sovereign with extensive territory, for Bulgaria has an area of 34, OiK) square miles. In days to come it may he that the story of Prince Carl, of Koumania, may form a chapter in the ro mance of history. It is commonly Baid that revolutions lever go back ward, but Marshal Mac vlahon does not believe this, and he is ryinir to bring this back to the very un latisfactoiy position that immediately followed the resignation of M. Thiers Gis new Cabinet is substantially tbe old •ne, tbe same reictionary cabinet that •e formed at the first, with the Duo de troglie at its head, whose theory of gov ■rnment is as far as possible removed roui that which has been gradually lining ground in France in the lust taree years.
