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.

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.

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

and friends of the school in Diatrirt No. 7. And the im
pulse given in favor of true education I already beginning
to be felt. The grandest Idea yet "born of the ages," la
that of universal education, the education or the people,
the whole people, rich or poor. The grandest enterprise of
this most enterprising country tho world ever knew. Is the
inaugurating tit this Idea in tbe Public Schools. Our pnb
lic schools are doing for ns. In this land, what nothing else
can do: and the people of to-day may well eongratnlate
themselves, that they live in these latter times of the
nineteenth century, when education is razz to all.

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. He is a man of comprehensive viens, and
knows how and wbeu to say the right thing."'
The New York Herald in a late issue says :
"Keports from Kaus,is indicate u more geurn 1
Kepublican ote than ever In-fore. The re-vhi-tiou
of Senator romeroy seems to be beyuitd
doubt. Mr. Pomeroy certainly deserves well of
this State, for few States have ever had a more
faithful and efficient Senator. No man in the
United Slates surpasses him to executive capa
city." The Washington CAroaiccof DcccuiIkt 11th,
says:
"We trust that Kansas will do herself the
honor and certain benelit that must result from
retaining tin- services of one who has lieen so in
timately identified with her history. Mo ha ac
complished great good for his Western constitu
ency. The history of Kansas is so closely inter
woven with that of her Senator, that the two
onglit not to be separated now. We know that
calumnious reports havels-rii raised against him,
but we know equally well they are nop credited.
Here, among those who know him li.sr his re
putation iu tho Senate is not second to that of
any member of this body. His generosity and
earnestness iu every Christian enterprise has
made him a host of friends. Slander and suspi
cion are fn-nnrntlv used as instruments to strike
down most faithful and deserving public ser
vants. It ought not to be a matter of surprise
that they haw been used against Mr. Pomeroy.
Kansas may have mnnv wortbv nsiiir.intH, but
she can't afford to dismiss her old Senator.'

says:
"It now appears that a little clause in the

authorizes thu transfer of liounty patents by thn

Since then Clark is known to have committed

connections. He could imitate, Pi.in.-roj'.s wri
