Who knows whether the officers of the Bank of England are not as corrupt as those of the Bank of Glasgow, should not be more surprised that there should be an English bank thief, than i hat there is aSi otch thief; for of all thieves the English thieves are said to he the most adroit, and we believe that London lias the credit of producing more of these gentry than any other city. We The Gazette says that—but nevei mind, on second thought we have eluded to speak personally to all the Ga zette Kerry Freniny. That is too thill!

The Cipher Dispatches.—T he Every Evening and Commercial) hating the Democratic party, which its editors, and its owners, save one, during their en tire lives have opposed, (one of them hav ing declared he would rather vote for a negro than a Democrat, ) gave credit to the Tribune'* falsi*, absurd and slanderous cipher dispatches, and endeavor to fasten their authorship on Mu. Tilden, the Democratic President-elect of the United States; notwithstanding Mn. Tilden denied lie had anything to do with them, and that the New York llerald , Philadel phia Timen , Record, and very many other independent papers accepted Mr. Tilden's denial. The Baltimore (iazette of to-day again referred to those lying dispatches as follows : "It is conceded that cipher telegrams were sent by Mr. Tiiden's friends be tween South Carolina and New York. Weed and Wooley each admits that some were sent but say that they were such as w ere harmless and referred to legitimate business. Among the hun dreds of dispatches published only a few an* infamous. We charge that the unob jectionable ones are genuine and the others are dki.hikratk forgeries. It would he easy after having ohtuitied these cipher telegrams and worked out tin.* key to have altered the genuine and forged any number required to make the story good. The key being once discov ered to read the genuine dispatches, it w ould be perfectly simple to forge others. We charge that this has been done. Where were those alleged cipher tele grams kept these two years, and who is the guarantor that they were not tam pered with ? How did the alleged Gram *rcy-Park telegrams come into the pos session of New York Tribune., and what assurance has the public that that they have not been altered and forged ? It is not necessary to charge that the New York Tribune has been party to any forgery,but how is the public to know that it has not been played upon by a systematic forgery w hich it accepted too readily as genuine docu ments 2 The indictment of the Grainer ey-Park group has now been filed by tin* 'Tribune, and Mr. Tilden, Mr. Marble and Mr. Havenicyer have euch severally denied in the most explicit manner ail know ledge of the infamous bargains in tin* alleged cipher telegrams.

We heretofore published e of liis able and logical arguments cuu from the stump. It wi cise and argumentative, that it became so clear, s the k* y note tor tin* campaign from one end of the Uni» to the other. He shows conclusively that t in* expenditures of the government under the Republican ad ministrât ions, aside from the interest on the public debt and the amount paid as I>c usions, which are chargeable to the •, were nearly double that under Dem ocratic administrations. There can be no mistake about this. The farmers and mechanics are taxed fully double what they were before the rebellion, to pay high salaries and to keep up thirty thou sand otlire-1 h Jders more t han is needed. But independent of this the gold gamli lers, by demonetizing silver hoped to make these taxes higher. The young people now coming of age, had nothing to do with the war: were wholly innocent of it, and yet the bad men, such as John Sherman, who brought it on and made millions out of it, have tried and trying to make these innocent young en pay double tin* tax that a fair and honest calculation of the first, cost of tin* bonds and war expenditures would amount to. The taxes are so enormous that our youth dare scarcely to enter tain an idea of marriage. Even the most industrious and frugal of them find it difficult to study out liow they could make "the two en» Is meet," if they desire to take upon themselves the duty of maintaining a partner in life. And the problem is as dillieult to solve in the country as in the cities. The taxes upon the people are laid upon everything; and absorb all the profits of labor, terest account alone costs more than all are The in the expenditures of the government un der Mr. Buchanan's administration ; while the pension account amounts to an incredible sum also. We only wonder that the young men are not till Demo crats; since they are opposed to such enormous expenditures. The insurance companies are likely to lose heavily on the cargo of the English iron steamer John Bramhall, now ashore on Little Gull Island, in the sound, ofl New London, Conn. »She had on hoard 32,000 rifles, 42,000 sabre-bayonets and 21,000,000 balls and shells, the latter to be made into cartridges upon arrival in Turkey. Her cargo is being rapidly re move<l by scliooners ami lugs. As tiie rifles were in tin cases a good part of them have not been wet, but the bal s and shells will be almost a total loss. If they had been made into cartridges they would have been in tin casas, and so pro tected. The value of the cargo is KWV 000. The steamer will be floated in two or three days.

The ordinary expenses of the Gov ernment for this year, exclusive of pen sions and interest of the public deb*, were $58,055,052. These expenses statt it in detail, were (omitting cent-) : For the War Dept.

The ordinary expenses of the Government for that year (exclusive of pensions and interest on the public debt) were $142, 073, «32, being $83.110,082 in excess of the last year of Democratic adminlstra'ion ; or, in other words, the Republican ex penditures were nearly two and a-lndf times as great as the Democratic expen ditures.

Again, it may he said that the increase of expenses grew out of the war. This explanation will uot answer.
