SOL. jnTsT.ISR, . . Editor. TBbY, KANSAS:' Thursday, : : : : : January 2, 1873. Eceaomy. Certain memlicr of the Legislature, wlio are abont to go to Tppelca for the first time, are mak ing their calculations what measnres they will carry through, and what extravagances they will liip off, to reduce expense, and lessen taxes. If they willhenrken to an old stager for a moment, we will foreshadow the success they will meet with in their riraleworthy efforts. Tbey will start out brash for economy, and fight Tigoronsly for about three days; bnt on tbe third day, they will discover that they do not amount to a rfiw of pins, and will incontinently subside; and for the balance of the term, tbey will look on in gaping wonder at the way tbe money flies. Abont the second day, a resolution will go throngh, ordering $5 worth of postage stamps for each member and officer, amounting to Mine $750. Then, ten or twenty copies of a daily paper, at $i per copy for the session, will be voted to each officer and member, making about 1500 or 3,(00 copies, amounting to from $3,000 to $6,000. But when the pet State Institutions make their modest demand, the idea of economy will vanish. The Normal Schools and the Universities will pnt in their estimates for current expenses, every one asking fur an increase 'of officers, and an lucrvase of salaries for the office. Tbe Penitentiary will want at least $100,000, for current expenses, and $30,000 for indebtedness incurred during tbe past year. The Insane Asylum is already hinting for $150,000, for additional buildings. The Deaf and Dumb and the Blind Asylums will each want new buildings, new furniture, and in creased salaries. The State University will ask tbe State to pay tbe lionds for which she went security. The Agricultural College will ask for a new building, a farm on which to experiment in tree-planting, and farms for other experiment, besides an appropriation to send an army of stu dents ont over the plains, in search of pebbles . and shells. The Capitol building will demand' $20,000 to complete the East Portico, and $10,000 to pay for cutting next year crop of "jimpson" weeds, nnder the fictitious title of improving the State House Grounds. A bill was begged and bammed through, last Winter, establishing or re cognizing a Colored Normal School at Qnindaro. This will fasten itself as a permanent leach upon the Stale, and ask for its modest pittance of $8,000 or $10,000. This is not all. The poor settlers on the Jrou tisrs n ill be suffering, and will ask for an appro priation to keep them from starring. The Neu tral Land fellows will ask that their losses be paid. Commissioners will be authorized to limit up new claims for losses in Indian wars; and every man who has lost anything, or thinks he ought to have had something to lose, will have in a bill for damages, and will lie lobbying to get the State to pay it. Besides these things, intln ential members mid. others will have particular friends, male and female, who are desirous of pending the Winter inTopcka, and solicitous for some easy means of paying their way. These will be appointed to imaginary Clerkship, and draw their $3 per day for work which they have not done. This is the way that economy will prevail. And ths taxes will keep up, and tbe people will groan and grnmble. Tub New Year, and tiie Times. The ad vent of the year 1673, finds the people laboring under excessively hard times, with taxes high BUW ianu iitj,i:w, mr uc.,., icuiuiieruiivu prices. Dissatisfaction and discouragement exist, and many are talking of selling out, and removing in search of liettcr quarters, as if hard times would not in turn assail them there, perhaps before they are comfortably settled down. Tbe best plan is to weather out tbe storm where we are. The produce market liasevidently touched bottom, and by Spring, press will at least be bearable, if not as high as could be disired. Europe, it is said, will require many luillinu bushels of grain from abroad, much of which must be supplied by the United States, and this heavy demand innst materially increase prices. The result of the Presidential election has settled the financial policy of the Government, re-assuring capitalists, and averting danger of a money panic Taking all in all, there is good reason to hope that, with the opening of Spring, business will assume a more lively aspect, and that the press ure of hard times will yield, and prosperity again smile npon the land. That "Cure" ricrcnE. The Water Postal Record, published at Chicago, the nlost reliable postal paper in the Union, says: "How it is that the proprietors of Ot'K Fiiie SIDK FlUEXD can give away to every subscriber a beautiful chromo of 16x20 inches, and which re tails every w here at $10, is mure than we can tell. But they do it. And it is certainly an elegant picture. The subject is most pleasing, and it will be a beautiful ornament in any household. OCR Fireside Friend has attained a very large circulation, and is firmly established as one of the leading family weeklies of the Union. 17 New snbstibers, who wished to commence with the story of "Love and Skates," are inform ed that we printed only onr regular editiou, last week, and the numbers were soon exhausted. We are sorry we cannot accommodate them. The story will bo concluded next week ; and the week following, we shall commence the publication of a story that cannot fail to to interest all readers. Those wishing it complete, would do well to send in their names at once. A GtfeUe fttjaelefce!. The case of J. E. Dryden rertw One. Craig came up in the District Conrt, on Tuesday, and was thrown out, or squelched in some other way. Thus ends (for the present, at least) a nice little game to bleed the taxpayers or the Couuty to the tune of almost three thousand dollars. A state ment of the case may not lie uninteresting, as showing how public servants sometimes guard the interests of the people. The County voted &S00,I of bonds to the St. Joteph and Denver City Kailroad. For some reason, for which tbe County was not to blame, the lionds were not delivered just at the time when tbe Railroad Company claimed they were due, (we believe, on acconnt'of some flaw picked by the Company itself,) and the Company de manded interest for the time tbey were delayed. The demand was resist ml, until the last meetingnf that Board, consisting of J. E. Drjden, John H. Utt, and A. B. Symns; bnt at the last moment, an order was made, by the vote of Dryden and Utt, allowing the claim for interest, amounting to $2000. Symns opposed it, and indignantly de nounced it as a swindle. Tbe warrants were is sued, and the Railroad Company, retaining $1300 of the amount, divided the other half equally be tween Dryden and Utt,or rrrr, as they said. Symns, who opposed the gobble, having rendered, no services, received no part of the grab. What those valuable services were, has never been stated ; but it will strike the pnblic that those two officers, sworn to protect the interests of the Couuty, were bribed with $630 a piece, to saddle an unjust tax of $2G00 npon the people. The new Couuty Board immediately organized, consisting of A- ft. Symii, C.W. Noym, and 8. Hatch. Their first act was to pass an order commanding tbe Treasurer not n pay the fraud ulent warrants. Dryden presented his, time and again, aud was refused, by both Treasurers Rap pelye and Craig. Utt undertook a more charac teristic sneaking plan. Couuty warrants had then reached par, and were uo drug in the mar ket; bnt Utt offered Craig his warrants at 50 cents mi the dollar! In plain words, he tried to bribe the Treasurer to pay the warrants, in viola tion of the order of the Board and even then, he would have made $325 clear gain. Time after time, he asked Craig tomakehim an offer for tlio scrip eeming anxious to get rid of it -at any price, so that he could tempt the Treasurer to commit himself, aud save him from losing his en tire price for his dirty work. He also tried to sell the scrip iu bank, in St. Joseph, with uo bet ter success. Drjdeu was determined to go the hole hog, so ho brought suit agaiust the County. The suit would not stick, and ho was informed that his only recourse was to sue the Treasurer on his bond, for refusing to pay the warrant. He took that course, and the case lias been pending for some time Treasurer Craig having gone out of office iu tbe meantime. Dryden's J&jO and inter est is not tho full amount saved to the tax-payers by the failure of the suit. His was put forward as a test case. Had he gained it, tho Railroad Company would have come iu with their $1300 and intercut; and Utt, having doubtless failed to get an offer for his little $60, would have come down nu the County for that. It is a fine thing to have officers who so care fully gnanl the interests of tho people the peo ple being principally themselves. But what shall we say of the liberality of a Railroud Company, that so munificently rewards those officers for their terricea iu attending to the public iuteiest, when it is not able to pay any of its just debts f Cold axd CaXAxmv The intense cold, last week, was general throughout tbe country, North and South, East and West. Reports from every direction, show the thermometer to have ranged from 10 to 20 degrees below zero; aud all agree that it was the coldest weather siuce January, 1864. Tbe period has also been one f calamity. Rail road accidents, in alt parts of tbe country, have been numerous, and some of tbcm very destruc tive to life. Terrible storms have raged along the coast, from Msiiietu Florida, canting immense damage; and railroads throughout the East have been blockaded with snow. Destructive fires have also raged in all the cities. One at Memphis, on Friday, destroyed $250,000 worth of steamboat. Taking weather aud causalties iu connection, we doubt whether tho last week has ever had a parallel iu history. W A high public functionary, who ought to be impeached, has got off the following execrable conundrum: Why is the Liberal party in Kausas like an an cient religions sect 1 Thad yon see, (Saddncee.)

The Wichita Eagle learns 'from H. H. Allen, just, from tbe buffalo range, that on the 23d a colored man was frozen dead fifteeu miles west of that place; and a white man with him was so badly frozen that he will probably die. A party of four went iuto camp oil Moots creek, 25 miles from timber, who have undoubtedly perished. At a house 12 miles west of Wichita, 15 men ar rived during the night of the 23d, all frozen; some of them will lose their feet, ot Iters bauds and fin gers. Tbe road was strewn with buffalo bids and meat, aliandoned by their owners to save them selves and teams. Tbe Leavenworth Timet says while a man in the employ of Mr. Popeau was digging a well on the latter's place, in tbe western part of the city, a vein of coal was struck twenty-two feet lielo'w the surface of the earth. Mr. Pojieau imniedia tly examined the coal, aud fonnd it to be of a very superior quality. The vein is near two feet iu thickness, aud is supposed to extend some dis tance, iiiree wagon loads were taken out and sold on tbe ground at twenty-three cents. A few days siuce, a chimney sweep, whose name we were unable to obtain, while i leaning one of the chimneys iu Mr. Wni. McXeal dough's residence, fell from tbe roof and broke his back.

Savs the New York Time of a recent date: "Late advices from Kansas leave no doubt of tbe re-election of Senator Pomeroy. Iu propor tion to the population, more has been done tit ward internal inipmve.nents in the State of Kan sas than iu any oilier State, and for this, the State is indebted ill the main to Senator I'limc roy.

It is one of the most brilliant anil effective periodicals ever published ln this country. It contains twice the usual unmberof pages; and these are filled with choice stories, interesting sketches, delight ful humor, spicy material from Dio Lewis, Christ mas music and poetry, and unusually attractive general reading suitable to the festival season. Several authors of reputation are repreeouted, among them, Edmund Yates, T. 8. Arthur, Chris tian Keid, Jean Iugeluw, John D. Stockton, Max Adeler, and others. The number is rich in exquisite illustrations, drawn by some uf tbe best. artists in the country, and executed by one of the most skillful engra vers in the profession. To-Day must inevitably fiud its way into hun dreds of thousands of homes iu the laud. It is just the paper for the fireside and the family. We cordially recommend it to the public; and we assure those who desire employment that they cau not do better than to canvass for To Day, w hich ufires especially good terms and a marrel ously beautiful chromo to each subscriber. Mac lean, Stoddart &. Co., Philadelphia, New York, Bueton, aud Cincinnati, are the publishers. VST The excitement iu this part of Kansas, at this time, is Dcnisou, Texas.

On the other hand, the commercial privileges of foreigners have beeu curtailed, ou account of their alleged abuse.

The Xrw York Evening Vmt rails attention to the bill which recently passed the House of Repre sentatives, giving public laud as an aihlilion.il bounty to soldiers ami sailors of tho lalo war. It says: "It now appears that a little clause in the amended soldiers' mid sailors' land and Ismuty bill, which passed the House of I!epresiitaties last week, contained a very large scheme for misaiiimpriatiiii the- imldic Iamls. This clause authorizes thu transfer of liounty patents by thn soldiers to agents, mid thus the object of the original incisure, to give homes to uesily soldiers and their heirs, is perverted into a ineaus of gigantic speculation. Should this bill lie enac ted, there is no doubt that the vast amount of land which it originally contemplated giting anayfnra patriotic purpose will almost exclu sively fall into the hand of the great laud monopolists.
