tltc 'jtnporia Jra-'s. EMPORIA, FRIDAY, JAN". 7, 1881 The administration of General Gar field promises to be one of masu-rly ia hctWity, ao far as the apixilntnieul ot Ohio men to office is rrgaidcd. Cincinnati Commercial: As c unJtt Und the purpose of Gen. Gsrfeld, it is to close op the old quarrels in the Re publican parly, and make it solid and harmonious for future usefulness. The number of immigrants arriving at New York - during the yt ar fall but little short of a third ol.a million. ' Any other new country would go wild with delight over such an ad Jitli.n to its work lng force, but Americans do not always know when they are in luck. Senator David Davis is said io enter tain a friendly lejard for Cenrral Gar field, and is manifesting an afilmity for the Republ ic a n party. Tl ia fai t allbrda another notabl- confirmation of the old adage that a man' hlnd-aight always beau his fore-sight 1 y on overwLelming majority. Common wealth : Tu Arkansas Val ley Editorial Association meet at Wich ita next Saturday. We are requested to giro notice that all ed torial passes which expired on the 31st ot December, have been extended, and will be good to the 15th instant. Editor can go to Wichita on the old passes. President Hayes was so pleased with the new. White House china, made by the Ilavilanda, that be ordered a large num ber of extra dishes, and the set now in cludes nearly a thousand pieces. The President is about to give a dinner to the International Sanitary Conference, and the entire set will be used for the first time. New York Tribune : There is a place ia Vermont called Barnnmsville. The inhabitants have petitioned for a change in the name of the post office. They stood the mule-buying business, but the Merey forgery was to. much for them Barnum owna a mill there, but be does not own the people. They are ashamed of him. Nevada figures m the census table else where in these columns with. a popula tion of 02,203, just about enough to en title her to a half congressman. We cannot forbear commending this golden opportunity to the consideration of Ed Ross. His fractional plan of construc tion would fill the bill with uslonUhiDg accuracy. m From the figures published by thecen us bureau at Washington, it appears that a number of cntvrprizing cities have shrank amazingly under the lead pencils of the census enumerators. A year ago cities of about a hundred thous and inhabitants were almost as numer ous as horses about seven years old, but those days are gone. John Sherman goes on reducing the national debt with thesume unwavering assiduity that characterized his financial operations when the Democracy charged all his achievements in this direction to motives of political aggrandisement. But then it may be possible that "Old Resumption" is keeping his weather eye peeled on the chances of 1884. Topeka Commonwealth : Hon. Thos, Ryan requests us t' slate that he will supply such documents and seeds as be has, to any in bis district who may ap ply, specifically stuting what is wanted It is the only economic mode of distrib uting them. To send them out promis cuously is to waste them. They are useful only to those who want them, and ' " It will cost all such but one ceut (postal) to make the application. If the southern people really mean to JKVprer a now leaf in their political 'V -olet.thair jew5ppers..tojioiiDOS . righting of such gross wrongs r.w-ue fraudulent counts in the Charlea- ' too district of South Carolina, the Shoe- , string district of Mississippi and a half dosea other districts where large Repub lican majorities were blotted out by the most unblushing rascalities. The Pennsylvania and Unit i more & Ohio railroad companies have locked horns at Philadelphia, the result being to so delay the trains on the latter road in starting from the yards, as to occasion travelers the most serious inconvenience, There seems lust now to be a loud call for expedition on the part of Mr. Reagan In forcing a passage, in the national leg islature, of his bill regulating the abuses of insolent railroad corporations. Rev. Robt. Collyer says that answers to prayer never come except by the most determined effort on the part ot the per sons making them to have their peti tions answered. We sluccrcly trust that the Emporia man who" bus been daily Importuning a throne of grace for a cessation of hostilities from a very ag gravated case of mother-in-law, can . read this sentiment without being ani mated with a desire to sweeten the old lady'a coffee in the Interests of domestic harmony. The Atchison Champion comes out with a rattling New Year's edition, in which la noted the various improve ments made in that city during the past year and the progress of its material, spiritual and intellectual growth. It is assuring to note that Atchison's boom is not wholly on paper, but is a variety which assumes the garb of brick and mortar, wood and stone, and all those manifold forms in which capital and en terprise are wont to find expression. Osage County Chronicle: The A., T. St S. F. company's receut large order for rolling stock is being commented upon by the eastern papers. They hardly realize yet the immense expansion of the great west. The order alluded to was for fifty locomotives, forty puxsenger cars and 2,500 freight cars. The aggre gate value of this additional rolling stock foots up about $2,250,000. The company should add one or two hun dred coal cars to this order. Our min ers complain of the scarcity of cars. The Southern Baptist Mission have Just contracted with Mr. Wm. Foyer, of Parsons, this state, for the establishment of a new mission in the Indian Territo ry, to bo composed of nine spacious buildings, including a church, school house and residences for missionaries and teachers. Moral and religious con siderations aside, it Is certainly gratifv lng, even from a hygienic stand-point, to know that this venture is in the hands of a sect whose theological tenets will ob lige the noble red men in whose behalf the effort is being prosecuted, to submit to at least one general ablation during the perlod'of their Cbristiain Uvea. New York Tribune: The Mormon problem, which every administration for the last quarter of a century has handed over to iu successor, remains to plague - the new president. It seems almost as far from a solution now as when Buch anan sent Albert Sidney Johnson to Utah with an army, in 1857, to coerce the sinful saints. Grant's policy of court prosecutions and Hayes' policy of moral suasion have been alike unsuc easfttl In breaking op polygamy. Per haps the next administration will try new method. A heroic and effective plan ia suggested, - involving the abolition by congress of the territorial legislature ' and courts', the temporary government of the Terri tory by a commission, the recognition ana enforcement . or the property rights and claims to support of the de. luded women and unfortunate children who are victims of polygamy, and the rigorous prosecution of all persons coa trading new polygamous marriages. , i v - . THE EL O. ft E. bLuLBOAD. Jacksoa TwmM t Vsto a Boada - Jawry IV. Our readers in Jackson township are fallv aware of the proposition to vote bonds in that township to aid in the construction of the lytnsas City & Em poria railroad. The election is to take place on the 20th of this month. LitUe has vet been sud about the matter, be cause there seemed to be little to be said. The conditions of the question have been published for several weeks in our col umns, and will continue to be published until election, that the people of the township may tee just what they are votins for. Our people are well acquainted with this railroad bond question, because they hive had a practical experience with its workings. In this proposition they are simply asked to extend aid in bonds to the amount of 13.000 per mile for that portion of the toad to be built through Jackson township, the whole amount. though, not to exceed $25,000. The rood is to be built and in operation before the bonds are to be turned over to the railroad company. That is a square urooofciilou. and so fur as we can see a pt.-rftcl!y safe one, and now the question for the people of the township to decide is whether it will pay them to make the investment. That is one of the best ag. ricultural and stock townships in Lyon county, if not ths best. Ilia people are alive to their best interests, and we have no doubt but that they will see that those interests will be subserved by the construction of this rcilroad, which will give them, at once, the very best railroad facilities. These they have not enjoyed as they deserved. A depot la to be constructed at Neosho Rapids, one of the finest sites for a town in the state. Iu the eastearn part of the township Is an abundance of good coal, bleu can now only be marketed by hauling some fifteen or twenty milea in wagons. The town has a valuable water power, is surrounded by good timber. and has many other advantages which oaly a railroad will properly develop The line is to bo a continuous one from Kansas City. Propositions have already bein submitted in all the town ships in Frauklin county west of Ottawa and also in all the townships in Osage county through which the line is to pass Word reaches us from reliable sources that bonds will be carried in every one ol the townships above described. The people along the entire line are thor oughly awake to the importance of the road. In fact, the necessity of a road up the Marlaa Des Cygnes valley has long been felt, and efforts have often ' been made to build it, but mis fortune has as often overtaken these eff- ports. We but assert what can easily be proven when we say that the present or ganization is a much belter and stronger one in every particular, than any of those which have heretofore undertaken thia project. We are assured that the road will be built if the franchises are voted. la the organization arc several of our own citizens, who are det-ply in terefted in the development and welfare of our own county und of southern Kan sas iu general. These gentlemen have the means to build the road and can and will enlist an abun dance of capital In ilshehall to construct it at once. We believe this road will come through speedily from Ottawa as soon as the bonds are carried. If this chance is lost there will pro bably not be another one very soon, and we are of the opinion that it will be a good investment for our neighbors in Jackson ' township to vote the bonds asked for by a wide-awake ma jorlty. So soon as vhey do what it seems to be their plain interests to do, Em poria will take steps to bring the road to this city. Friends, we mint have that road . and have it now. . We must not allow it a chance to go around us or be come a mere branch or sidetrack of some other road. FRONTIER DESTITUTION. It will be highly gratifying to the citizens-or eastern-" Kansas to know 'that such an able and extensively circulated journal as the New York Tribune has considered the question of frontier des titution in this state of sufficient im portance to dispatch a special corres pondent to the afflicted sections in whose behalf appeals for aid have been made in the east, and a letter from his pen, written from Wakeeney and pub lished in the Tribune of December 27, under the head of "Want in Western Kansas," gives, iu our judgment the general outline of the situation, with great fairness and accuracy : The correspondent says that he found two classes ot people in western Kansas. One had some money and pleuty of per severance; the other little money and less perseverance." The former class have, as a rule succeeded ; the latter class have failed, thrown up their hands, and gone "bock east" cursing Kansas. The Tribune correspondent says the great mistake made by the new settlers was in risking their all on a first crop of wheat. That the experiment would un der the same conditions, have resulted disa-tiously in Illinois. Ha furthermore stales that it Is a great pity to try for the next ten years to make a farming coun try of western Kansas, which is natural ly a splendid slock country. The appeals for charity made in the east the writer describes as shameful im positions on charitable people and a dis grace to the state, and be gives a number of cases where well-too people have tnado a regular business of soliciting "aid," and says, "I have heard of many cases of persons who have made as much as 20,000 in begging for starving set tlers." That Kansas has suffered incalculably from the causes indicated, there can be no reasonable doubt, and it is equally cer tain that her future growth and develop. ment will be, sadly retarded until the real situation on the frontier is made known to the public and the tide of immigration stops snort or a section wnicu at present is not adequate to the support of the population which has been carried west ward under the false representations of greedy and heartless corporations. THE POPULATION OF KANSAS. Prof. D. J. Evans, who is now at Washington, in the census bureau, fur nishes to the Commonwealth the follow ing statement of the population of Kan sas: Mala female -. Total ... . Native . .. . r'uicifn ... While Colored ... . Chinese Itxtiaus ... . Halt l.reeds ftmmwe .. .536,077 883,707 1UU628 BSl.Mtf ? 10 993 lot S in relation to Mr. Evans writes also the above as follows: You will observe that this statement which is absolutely correct, ia about thousand less than was announced by the supervisor last summer. It seems that in many instances prison era and defective persons, as the insane, bliud, etc., were listed at their houses as well as institutions where they are con flu t-d. Also children, born after June 1st. but prior to the visit of the enumera tors were ortentimes listed. Some other errors were made. At any rate the num ber given ia the one that will be officially published by this office. Kansas has produced, during the cur rent year, 16,903,344 pounds of butter and 703,447 pounds of cheese. This showing may flood with new radiance those benighted minds whose conception of the resources of our glorious state is limited to politics and grasshoppers. Emporia Nkws. No state in the Union can produce more for the labor and money invested than Kansas. Her soil is rich, her peo ple industrious, while her misfortunes and drawbacks are few and far be tween. It is true, Kansas is styled the "rotton commonwealth," but it is a lie. - No other state can show a better state government that ours, and oorpub lie men are as honest aa any. Its peo plo, politrciaoa, railroads have rapidly developed oar state in the past, and will advance it on the high road to prosperity is the future, until it will be the wealth iest, happiest leading state in the nation. Parsons Republican. . You're shouting now, Higgins. HEBE ASD THESE. 'The recent visit of Don Cameron to Mentor bas imparled a new impetus to the yawps of the treaty idiots. John Kelly is out ot office for the first time in twenty-fire years, and Mr. Tilden is now able to elevate victuals to his mouth with his paralyzed arm. We regard the remarkable increase of wickedness in this country as partially explained by the foci that Chicago now issues at the rate of 6,588 marriage Ii. censes a year. The statistics from Kan- s.ia City arc awaited with interest. The day for satirical allusions to the literary culture of the west is manifestly ptut. Several of our exchanges from the frontier counties contain elaborate obit uary notices of "Mr. George Eliot, the celebrated writer on English Hus bundry." Some party who has a genius for fig-urea-could lay the Kansas public under contribution by publishing an authentic statement showing the exact proportion of the voting population of our common wealth who are aspiriug to the office of state pnnter. Evidences are multiplying in the vicinity o. Caldwell, that the fool-killer has had a very alack -year in Kansas. Had he contributed a little mere gener ously to the necrology of 1880, the Okla homa boom would not now be manifest ing such decided symptoms of vigor. Over $300 were distributed to the in digent citizens of Topeka on New Year's morning. A philanthropic public will rejoice to see such gratifying evidences of benevolence in a city where at lea&t every third man which one meets is nearly or remotely associated With the profession of journultsm. An exchange startles Uie public with the information that the match-makers of the United States, following the ex ample of the trunk railroads have form ed a pool. Unsophisticated young men who are unacquainted with the insidi ous wiles of the sex should take notice and govern themselves accordingly. The great national bear garden opened at Washington the 5th. If Sparks and Weaver are to be allowed in the ring, and the attractions of the early part of the session are to be repeated, we sug gest that an admittance not to exceed the conventional circus rates, be charged for seats in the gallery of the House. The Champion says that Wichita is being torn up by a preacher named She! ton, who is employing a patent kind of religion with highly gratifying results. If he succeeds in evangelizing the town, the resident editor included, we hope for the cause of morality, that he won't protect his methods against infringe ment. Mr. Reuben Springer, of Cincinnati, indulged in Christmas gifts of unusual size; he gave a United States bond for thousand dollars to euch of eight charit able institutions in that city; each of the faithful servants in his household also received $1,000. It is needless to add that Mrs. Springer's neighbors find it very up-hill business to coax away her hired girls. The Utah Geutiles, who have only one wife apiece are jealous of their more ux orious Mormon brethren, while the much married polygannsts heartily de test the Gentiles who never incur the awful responsibility of more than one mother-in-law nt a time. - But if our powers of observation serve us, we re gard it perfectly safe to assume that the rancor ot the Mormons over-reaches by a very respectable margin, the envy of the Geutiles. Adam Gunther, a German brewer of Paola, killed himself on the evening of the 31st ultimo, by shooting a hole iu his head, the cause of the suicide being attributed to depression caused by the prospective closing of his establishment by reason of the enforcement of the pro hibitory amendment. The theory of in sanity is effectually exploded, in view of the fact that the deceased preferred to run the chaucea of the self-murderer in tha future -world rather ahanVjive and face the alternatives of emigrating to Missouri or Texas. A pair of phenomenally tender lovers recently suicided at Coffeyville, this state, by taking strychnine, because their prospective nuptials had been postponed lor a week or two beyond the date agreed upon by them for their marriage. It is confessedly a melancholy circumstance for the intended bridesmaids and invited guests, but such consuming affection as theirs was too beautiful to last and, it was probably better that it vanquished the king of terrors than to have burned on a few fleeting months and then capitu lated to the omnipotent sway of the rolling-pin and broom-stick. The announcement that the annual income of James Gordon Bennett, of the New York Herald is $400,000 per annum, not only takes away the breath of the average Kansas ed itor, but has a tendency to suggest gloomy reflections on the favoritism of fortune and the injustice or rate. It is true that $100,000 is somewhat in excess of the yearly proceeds of journals as they run throughout the state, but it must not be forgotten that exalted priv ileges entail great responsibilities, and Mr. Bennett is probably the only news paper man in the country who is expect pectcd to get on a $10,000 drunk at least once every three weeks for the delecta tion of the reaaing public upon whose patronage he is so largely dependent. Chicago Tribune: One of the most urgent reforms needed in the American system of government is the improvement of congressional pro cedure. Decorum will only follow strictly defined and well-regulated methods for the consideration of public business. If some of the Democrats who havo recently endeavored to make themselves conspicuous by their new born zeal for civil service reform (since their party was defeated in the recent election) had turned their attention to properly directed efforts for reducing congressional chaos to an intelligent system they might have done the coun try vastly more service. The contradic tions, complications and frictions of con gressional procedure must be largely done away stitb. before studious and philosophic consideration and earnest, prompt and practical disposal of public business can be secured. The time has come, too, when a reduction rather than an enlargement of membership in the house should be the aim of reappoint ment. Without these reforms, congress will continue to have and ta merit the reputation of a "bear-garden." Hay is selling in San Juan county, Colorado, for $300 per ton. The Tribune's Prophecy. New ions, Jan. 3. The Tribune to morrow will give prominence to the fol lowing editorial: The time seems fit for at least one statement about the ap proaching administration of President Garfield. It is not to be used to make weight in pending senatorial contests, whether in New "York or elsewhere. We are fully authorized to say this, and the words are entitled to their full signifi conce. It is proper to say further that the incoming administration will see to it that the men from New York and from other states, who had the courage at Chicago to obey the wishes of their uiairicu in uaiiuung lor president, and who thus finally voted for Garfield, shall not suffer for it nor lose bv it Tiuv will not fail of honorable recognition for their independence, their courage, their resolute pursuit of the policy they be- ucreu ucH wr uic vciuoiica0 party and fortho country. Gentlemen at Albany who are said to have been threatened with a different course at Washington may reassure themselves. The adminis tration of president Garfield is to bo an administration for the whole Republican partv. It will foment no quarrels- it will most earnestly seek the things that make for peace and for the best interests of the party it represents, but it will not permit it friends to be persecuted for their friendship.

Of course the White House was the focus of official interest to-day, the president the great American joss, oeiore wnom on ssew Year's day the -robed and epauictted American world bow down and the ti tied diplomatic crowd burn incense. On this occasion the Joss House was gaily festooned with nags or many nations and decorated with plants and the air was heavy with the perfume of govern- ment nowers. tne crasn ot government mcsic kept the horses feet warm outside. O ir $50,C00 a year Marine band is sustained for this especial purpose. Punctually at 11 o'clock the President and Mrs. Hayes entered the iSlue room, followed by bevy of young ladies-in-waiting. Major Jrarquerhar. of the engineer corps. Vice President Wheeler, Colonel Webb Hayes - and Colonel Casey completed the group. The young ladies comprised Miss Wills, of San Francisco; Miss Cook, niece of Mrs. Hayes; Miss Scott, of New Orleans; Miss Devens, niece of the attorney-general; Miss Herron. of Cincinnati; Miss Fannie Hayes; Mis Morgan, of New York; Miss Russell, of Providence, and Mrs. Elizabeth Thompson, the female philanthropist. Most of these were young school girls, and the toilets of ali ! A V.t j;j were rich and tasteful. Col. Casey did the introductory business to the presi dent, and Webb Hayes performed that service for his mother. The officers of cabinet were first presented. Then came the foreign diplomatic corps un der the especial charge of Secretary Evarta. The diplomatic corps were in full court dress, resplendent with gold lace, and embroidery, and decorations. There was a larger attendance of these gentlemen than usual. Sir Edward Thornton and the British legation took precedence Most of the foreign repre sentatives were accompanied by ladies, who displayed elegant toilets. The Russian minister and wife made the handsomest and most distinguished looking couple of the foreign group. The Russian court dress is . very elaborate and striking. The Danish Minister who appeared for the first time in public since his arrival, was delighted with the occasion, and ex pressed himself particularly gratified at the opportunity offered Liui by his position as a diplomat to see our coun try thoroughly during his residence in the United States. He has most pre fo&&cssiop manners and expression of face, and speaks English perfectly. His i uniform, which includes a bright rtd coat, is very handsome. He has several orders and decorations. The Austrian : Minister was unfortunately, too ill to attend. Daylight was excluded, and a flood of gas illuminated the brilliant throng. Lady Thornton wore a ricb black satin, embroidered in steel and jet. Her bonnet matched her dress. The MinseaThoroton were dressed alike, in ruby colored satin brocade, with Rubens bats bats and plumes of the shade, as their dresses. . . .. . MBS. KTAKT8 wore black velvet with fichu and rare old point lace. The secretary of the in tenor was accompanied by his two charming daughters. Immediately suc ceeding the reception of the Cabinet ccme that of justices and officers of the supreme court una tne Judges or the court of claims. Very few senators and members responded when their turn came, not more than a dozen all told. This is leas than ever before, and excites comment unfavorable to thecongresaion al esteem for the president. Nearly all ot those who paid their respects were Democrats. The army and navy officers came next, beaded bv General Sherman and Admiral Porter, respectively. They formed a brilliant gathering, being in full uniform, and at once put the White House scene on a war footing. Then came the officers of the district govern ment, including the jndees of the local courts and Marshal Fred Douglass. At is:au o ciock iouwwea tnenssistants, sec returio and heads of bureaus of the executive departments, these by ' the veteran associations, and finally came the great common' people. As most of the public preferred to toast their feet at home to dancing attendance on the executive, this feature was very slim in. deed. New York. Jan. 1. The day is s de lightful one, but cold. All business was suspended at noon. Mayor Cooper bowed into office the new Mayor, Wm. R. Grace. Many gentlemen well known in the mercantile, social and literary circles witnessed the ceremony. Chicago, Jan. 1. The weather mod erated very decidedly last night, and the mercury stoud Dy noon to-day at 32 de grees above zero in sunny places. ThiaJ brouzbt out New Year's callera in con siderable numbers, and the streets dur ing the afternoon presented a spectacle of unusual gayety. The banks and pub lic buildings were closed, while carriages and groups of gentlemen in holiday at tire took the place of hurrying workmen and business wagons and carts. The weather grew cooler toward evening and was quite nipping toward midnight. A similar condition of the temperature prevailed in other parts of the northwest so far as reports are received. Grouped by Garfield Washington. Jan. 3. The specula tion relative to the composition of Gar nela'a cabinet uas been awaKened by itie late conferences at Mentor betwein the president-elect and Don Cameron and other prominent politicians. An inti mate friend of Garfield's, now in this city, declares that it is his belief that not a single canmet oincer has been settled upon as yet. This ia not because Garfield baa not received enough advice upon the subject. Some of bis advisors have been very officious. The General, however. is inclined to take it pnnosopnicauy. According to this (rentleman. who claims to speak by the card, the office-seekers are already quite numerous. Garfield bas always considered himself fortunate in having a large number ot warm ana devoted friends, but he never had any true idea ol eituer tueir numbers or the warmth of their friendship until be was nominated for the presidency. Since his election they hayc increased wonder fully in numbers and enthusiasm. GARFIELD 8 ACQUAINTANCES GROUPED. "The only way in which I can esti mate the number of my acquaintances,' said Gen. Garfield, "ia to croup them 1. 1 here is the neighborhood group. I have always lived iu the neighborhood where I was born, and for forty-nine years my lite Cere has brought me a con tir. aally widening circle or acq u am tan cea, until I can . say with almost literal truth that I personally know a majority of the voters of the Is inetecnth district. and they all or nearly alt know me. 2. There is the school irroup. all those per sons that I have gone to school with, or all who have been my pupils, those whose acquaintance I formed at teacher's institutes, educational conventions, etc., when I was teacher, and all whose ac quaintance I have made by correspon- dence and otherwise during my public lile, persons who are especially interested in educa tion, and who have sought my acquaint ance or assistance on account or my in terest in the same subject. 3. There is the church group. The Disciple church which from the very nature of its or ganization, being a new church as it is called on account of its origin in a sort of protest against the creeds and forma las of other religious denominations, has tended to make the "Cam pbel Uea" what ii called cianish. MembersnTfl in any new organization naturally creates a strong bond of fellowship and sympathy, and thia was especially the case in the early organization of the church of the Disciples. So from my connection with that church many of the members in all parts of the country have sought my acquaintance. 1 bey reel that they have a peculiar claim upon me.such.I be- lieve.as no other president ever bad made upon him for a similar reason. 4. There is the army group the 4 2d Ohio volun teers, of which I wascolonel, and the two brigades which I commanded afterward. Then as chief of staff to Gen. Rosscrans I was known by sight to 100.000 men. and personally known to nearly all the officers in the army of the Cumberland, and besides all, of course, my connection with the army brought me many more acquaintances. 5. There is the political group, all those with whom I have served in congress during the last seventeen years, in which time there have been about 2,000 diflerent members of the house of representatives. Besides these are the political acquaintances made during political campaigns, or stumping tours auu utuer acquaimancesuips, wuicn grew out of the fact that during my public service in congress many hun dreds of persons have appeared before committees of which I have been a mem ber. I already find that a percentage ot these groups will be disposed to take advantage of their acquaintance with me, whether it be intimate or casual, to ask office, favors, appointments, etc. . Of course many of them will be persons who would be unnt or unworthy recip ients of the favor they seek, or for other reasons it will be impracticable to give them what they ask. 1 shall be com pel led to refuse them and thus cause them as well as mjsclt great pain. "1 sometimes think ot myself," con tinued Gen. Garfield, "as a man going to prison. You have heard the advice given one who has been convicted of a crime, to go to prison and bear manfully the punishment for his ofiense, to obey all the rules of the prison, and when his term expires to come back home and live it down. I am going to see if I can obey an tne rules ot tne presidency and then come oock una live it uown. ' Speaking particularly of the tenacity and pertinacity of office-seekers and ot the pain which some of them have al ready begun to inflict upon him, Gener al Garfield remarked: "It may aDocai very foolish to be greatly annoyed at what seems to be little things or by the dogged pertinacity of those one terms small people, but it cannot be helped sometimes. Some of my recent exper ience in this regard remind me of the story of the ichneumon and the croco dile on the banks of the Nile. The keen cunning, cruel creatures called the ich neumon watches until it sees the croco dile fast asleep with his mouth open. ! It then rushes quickly down his throat, with sharp teeth and claws lays hold of the very vitals of the great crocodile, which with all his strength is utterly powerless to loosen the hold ot the relentless little tormen tor. He rolls and writhes in his strong agony and desperation and at last dies. Imagine a crocodile with 100 or 1,000. ichneumons down his throat and you have a picture of the torture that may be inflicted upon a sensitive, sympathetic nature, by the horde of office seekers which attack a new president, or any other man who has patronage to be stow. "At the incoming of a new coming ad ministration a president labors under disadvantage that the crocodile does not," added Gen. Garfield. The ich. neumons that assail him do not wait till he is asleep, nor do they hunt singly. They come at all times and seasons and In squads and regiments at a time." The Morey Forgery. New York, Jan. 3. The Star to-morrow morning will comment as follows on the subjoined letters from the propri etors of the Truth to Gen.

Some time ago, when the proprietors of the Truth news paper became convinced that the letter waa a forgery, they wrote to Gen.

Sir After a searching investigation in which we have spared neither time, energy nor expense, we have traced the Morey letter to its on cm and ascertain ed that it is a forgery. This acknowledg- . j . . i , - .. i meal is uue iruia me journal in wuitu that letter first appeared. It is made voluntarily, and as an act of simple jus tice, for while we believed as we did, un til within a few weeks past, that you were the author of the letter, no bribe could tempt nor threat intimidate us in to making a contrary statement. But having ascertained our error, it is a grati fication to us to give the same promin ence to this acknowledgment that we gave to the forged letter itself, and there by make an tne amends in our power for the wrongfof which Truth was the unconscious instrument. Upon the instant that our investigations con vinced us that the letter was spurious, we privately informed you of our conclusion. At that time we were advised that the ends of justice might be impeded by a public avowal such as we now make, but as will appear by the ap pended letter from B. G. Jayne, Esq., that consideration no longer exists, and we do to-day what an observance of the principles upon which the Truth was established, and by which it has been conducted, would have impelled us to do immediately upon discovering that the letter was a forgery, and which noth ing could men nave prevented but a de sire to fasten the guilt where it belongs. Truth published the letter in good faith, believing that you were ita author. While we so believed, neither temptation. threats nor force could influence us to repudiate it. Likewise, having satisfied ourselves ot its spurious character, no false pride nor seinsl motive ot any kind can restrain us troiu announcing our conclusion and thereby allaying the doubt that now exists respecting its au thenticity. Kespectrully yours. (Signed) Trcth. LETTER OF B. O. JA1TNB. New York, December 31, 1880. Jos eph Hart, Esq.,: Dear Sir In answer to your note of yesterday, I would say that I can see no good reason for longer withholding the statement you desire to make in your paper, viz : that you are now satisfied, from the evidence in your possession, that the letter published by you. purporting to have been written by Gen. J. A. Garfield to II. L. Morey, of Lynn,. Massachusetts, was a forgery. Fully understanding the imposition practiced upon you by certain members of the national Democratic committee. upon whose assurances you relied with regard to the genuineness of the letter, and knowing now earnestly you nave worked to ascertain the authorship of the fraud by fol'owing every clew that seemed to lead to its solution, and luiiv appreciating your oft-repeated declara tions that your only wish in the premises waa to ascertain and proclaim the exact truth, 1 deem that in justice to all con cerned, the time has come when you should say the letter was a forgery, tor with the proofs in your possession there can be little doubt as to the real crimin als. Very respectfully, B. G. Jatne A Prosperous Country. New York, Dec. 31. The Evening Express, in its annual review of the past year's business of the country, and the port of New York says: "Viewed from a business stand-point the year has been a remarkable one, probably the most re markable in the history ot the country. There has been a great revival in trade, and the yolume of legitimate business during the year was beyond all prece dent. This improved condition of af fairs was the natural result 3f large crops, good export demand for our pro ducts, growth ot the country, heavy in flux of eold from Europe, and complete restoration of confidence growing out of the success of specie payments. One of the most gratifying features of 1880 has been tne great tailing on in tne numuer of failures and the amount or liabilities of suspended merchants. The growth of the country and the large additions to national wealth are strikicely illustrated in the products of the soil, of which we raised 475,000, 000 bushels of wheat, 1.500,000.000 bushels of corn, 413,000,000 bushels of oats. 24.000.000 bushels of rye. 40.000.000 buBhels ot barley, and 6,000,000 bales of cotton, to say nothing or tobacco, sugar and other crops, -and hog and dairy products, which yield an immense sum of money in the aggregate. In plain words, the United Slate now raises enoueh to feed her own 50,000,000 of people and to supply the deficiency of the balance or the civilized wono. "Durine the year more miles of rail- road have been built, more consolida tion and combinations entered into, more freight and passengers been trans ported, more money earned and more in terest and dividends paid than in any former year. The commerce of this country during the year bas made rapid progress, and caused the United States to take still a higher rank, being now the third among the commercial nations of the globe."
